May Be Model
Should the conference, which

treaty, the State Department said
the agreement may well serve as
a model for future East-West dis-
armament talks, particularly with
regard to the question of inspec-
As for the effectiveness of the
suggested team under severe
polar conditions, Prof. James H.
Zumberge of the geology depart-
ment asserted yesterday that out-
side of the problems faced by ev
eryone in that climate, keeping
tabs on activity would not be too
difficult -- "You can get around
in the Antarctic now without any
trouble," he pointed out.
The professor, who carried out
polar ice movement research in
the Antarctic during the Interna-
tional. Geophysical'" Year, is cur-
rently preparing for another six to
eight week study there beginning
in December.
Estimates Relations
"One-hundred per cent - no
problems" was his estimation of
relations among the scientist from
various -nations studying in the
Antarctic, but he noted some cur-
rent and potential problems in-
volving territorial claims.
The validity of the claims from
A r g e n t i n a, Australia, Chile,
France, New Zealand, Norway and
the United Kingdom, he com-
mented, have not been generally
accepted by the nations support-
ing scientific studies on the con-
tinent, and the United States and
Russia, with no claims of their
own, discount them altogether.
Although "no one has ever
pressed their claims" by trying to
restrict the activities of another
nation's scientists,; there are signs
of friction, he added.
Difficulties Arise
Russia, for example, has been
operating in territory earmarked
by Australia without seeking per-

Discuss Report
The Council also discussed a dis-
crimination report submitted by
the SGC Student Activities Com-
mittee. The report, a compiling of
replies to questionnaires sent out
to colleges across the nation, was
praised by members of the Council
as one of the finest ever assembled.

still practices constantly.
Marjaniemi, who ate dinner with

here, said he often writes down
words he does not understand to
memorize later.
Chalenko apparently fits into
his surroundings so well that some
people do not even know he is

Fred Schambach, '62, said he

Though he had never. met Cha-

well during his stay here.
Chalenko has had only one
"brush with the law" since he has
been here. Marjanieri said he
came to dinner without dressing
in jacket and tie, and was sent
back to his room to change.

Sadler Dies
In California
Professor Emeritus Walter C.
Sadler of the University engineer-
ing school died yesterday morning
at Pacific Palisades, Calif., of a
heart attack.
Prof. Sadler was a member 1 of
the University faculty for 34 years
and a former Ann Arbor mayor,
City Council president and an
alderman. He was 68 years old.
A world-wide authority on civil
engineering and engineering law,
Prof. Sadler began his retirement
furlough Sept. 1.
He served as mayor of Ann
Arbor from 1937 to 1941. In private
practice, Prof. Sadler worked as
designer and consultant on nu-
merous engineering projects, and
during World Wars I and II he
served with the United States
Army Engineering Corps.

State Court
By The Associated Press
LANSING - As the State Su-
preme Court took under advise-
ment yesterday a case contesting
the business activities tax, state
merchants were ordered to stop
collecting the use and sales tax
under the combined bracket sys-
State Revenue Commissioner
Louis Nims insisted that separate
use an dsales tax collections are
required "under penalty of law."
The court's decision on legality
of the use tax is expected any
day ,along with the business acti-
vities tax appraisal.
Costly Decision
A lower court has ruled in the
state's favor on the BAT. If the
decision were to go against the
state, it could cost up to a mil-
lion dollars in revenues.
Armco Steel Corp., contesting
$90,000 in 1954-55 taxes assessed
under the business activities tax,
has challenged constitutionality
of the BAT, the state's biggest
single general revenue producer.
In oral arguments yesterday,
Atty. Robert Dunwoodie of De-
troit, representing ARMCO, said
as applied to his client the BAT
amounts to a direct tax on gross
receipts from sales of goods that
are sold in interstate commerce.
Offends Clause
This offends the due process
clause of the United States Con-
stitution, he told the eight high
court justices.
William D. Dexter, an assistant
attorney general, defended validi-
ty of the tax.
Dexter said the central issue
was whether apportionment of the
tax is reasonable. He asserted
that it is.
Armco has no manufacturing
or warehousing facilities in Mich-
igan. Dunwoodie said it is legally
present in the state only for soli-
citation of orders and sale of its
products in interstate commerce.
Ships Steel
The corporation shipped 37 mil-
lion dollars worth of steel into the.
state from outside plants in 1954
and 54 million dollars worth in
1955, he said in answer to ques-
tions from the bench.
All deliveries were FOB from
points outside Michigan.
Dexter said that if the Supreme
Court reversed a Wayne County
circuit court decision against
Armco and yielded on all points
the result would be to relieve for-
eign corporations now paying 10
million dollars a year from the
burden of the BAT.
A decision is not expected be-
fore November at the earliest.

Board Asks
for Time,
Delay Means Chance
For New Negotiations
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
extended until Monday-from Fri-
day-the deadline for the report
of his board of inquiry on the
92-day steel strike.
Press Secretary James C. Hag-
erty said the President acted at
the request of the three-man fact-
finding board, relayed by Secretary
of Labor James F. Mitchell in a
brief call yesterday afternoon.
Hagerty told reporters that
Mitchell said nothing about the
prospect that the delay might give
a better opportunity for a medi-
ated settlement of the strike of
500,000 members of the. United
"Could Do Better"
Earlier, however, panel chair-
man George W. Taylor had told.
newsmen that he thought the
panel could do "a better over-all
job if we have until Monday."
The panel arranged to meet
separately yesterday afternoon in
secret sessions with top negotiators
of the union and industry.
Meanwhile, in Atlantic City yes-
terday, UAW President -Walter
Reuther proposed a united labor
strike fund for "historic battles
with big business.
He spoke at a UAW convention
devoted primarily to the 91-day
steel strike.
Auto workers are feeling the
strike's pressure.
Feel Pressure
General Motors John F. Gordon
has said GM's United States plants
can continue making cars to "lat-
ter October," but there have been
published reports that Chevrolet
assembly lines might close by
Tuesday, with Corvair production
hanging on to Nov. 1.
GM's reply to questions of speci-
fically how long it will go on is:
as long as we can.
Fisher Body division plants,
which fabricate, trim and assemble
all GM bodies, now are beginning
to close.

The 60-year-old Crisler vehe-
mently denied published reports
that he had already accepted the
"I've talked with these people
but I've made no decision," he
said. "When I have something to
say about it, I'll say it. But I'm a
little sick of people making up my
mind for me, and saying things
that aren't so."
Crisler has met at least three
times with Lamar Hunt, H. P.

spective owners of the Dallas,

franchises in the AFL.

Two of -these meetings were held
in Ann Arbor little more than a
week ago.
If Crisler does accept the $50,-
000-a-year job, he most likely will
notify University President Har-
lan Hatcher before making the
decision public.
President Hatcher dismissed re-y
ports of a growing friction be-
tween himself and Crisler as "one
of those rumors." He said that
their relationship has been "very
cordial and harmonious."

First Successful Firing
completed the first successful firing of the Nike-Zeus-the nation's
defense against intercontinental ballistic missiles.
Army spokesmen said the firing fell short' of its planned tra-
jectory, but both the first and second stages of the missile performded
successfully and "yielded the desired technical data."
Data on the range of the missile and its capabilities, are classified,

Women's Dorms To Get Priva

Private phones will soon be installed in five women's residence
halls, the Residence Halls Board of Governors decided yesterday.
The move to install phones in each room of Stockwell, Mosher,
Jordan, Alice Lloyd and Couzens Halls was made as the Board met for
its first meeting this year.
Assembly Association and the individual women's houses have
asked for private phones in these residences for several years. At
present, one switchboard takes phone calls for all dormitories on the
"public phone" system, except Couzens.
