Deadlock Lasts
Turkey Leads Poland in New Vote;
Two-Thirds Majority Still Lacking
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (MP)-Turkey, the West's candidate. for
a seat on the United Nations Security Council, went into a slight
lead over Communist Poland yesterday in a new round of voting.
But the Turks were well short of a two-thirds majority, and the
East-West deadlock persisted.
Balloting in the General Assembly was suspended for two weeks
after a see-saw race developed. Turkey's three-vote edge, its best
showing so far, gave the West new bargaining strength in the intense
diplomatic maneuvering for the seat on the 11-nation Council.
Prestige at Stake
At stake is the prestige of the West, as well as a vote in the

THUS, WHEN Reed O'Hanlon
won $16,000 as an expert on the
subject of Shakespeare, Revlon
struck the advertising jackpot, in-
creasing its sales 500%, and other
producers and advertisers jumped
onto the quiz-show bandwagon.
Quickly following in the wake of
"$64,000 Question" came "21,"
"$64,000 Challenge," "High-Low,"
"The Big Surprise," "Tic Tac
Dough," "Dotto," and many others,
geared to the viewer's vicarious
emotional responses to being asked
questions, and in one way or an-
other eliciting the answers from
the contestants.

The national heroes spawned
from the quiz show era included.
Gino Prado, Myrtle Powers, Joyce
Brothers, Richard McCutcheon,
Charles Van Doren, Teddy Nad-
ler, Elfreda Van Nordorf, Harold
Craig and Leonard Ross.
Prior to the emergence of Van
Doren as a national hero, there
had existed a distrust of all erudite
individuals, but the amassing of
$129,000 by Van Doren gave the
country its first "Egghead" idol, to
the point where he appeared on
the February 11, 1957, cover of
Time magazine, a magazine at-
tuned to the sensitive opinion of
the public.
For the past two weeks a House
Investigating Committee, under

the guidance of Rep. Oren Harris
of Arkansas has been delving iiuo'
the pithy subject of the answers
elicited from the contestants, in
order to discover any way of com-
batting the rigging of quiz shows
through future legislation. There-
fore, one must initially understand
the objectives of the people behind
quiz shows and secondarily, the
methods used to "rig" the shows.
In this way the investigations now
underway can be viewed in their
proper perspective.

Southbound Student To Peddle Streets of Laredo

A small but energetic University student has. given up pouring
over textbooks for maps and bicycling to class for what he considers
"real traveling."
Five-foot-five Douglass Morgan, '61E,/left yesterday for the only
pedal-less part of his journey to Rio De Janiero, approximately a
10,000-mile ride from his point of takeoff at Laredo, Tex. He and his.
English bike, equipped only with six speeds and two saddlebags, will
arrive in Laredo by train.
From there on, the trip will require a lot of legwork, with at least
two major gaps in the Pan American Highway, plus a lot of moun-
tain climbing.
Highway Dies
"The highway just dies out in some spots," Morgan said. "I may
have to boat around the areas from Costa Rica to Northern Panama
and Panama to Colombia.
"As for the gap between Mexico and Guatemala, I may be able to
get through there. I can always walk," he added.
Morgan was confident he could make the trin in a little over six
