Premier Takes Harbor Boat Trip,
Journeys South to Computer Plant
SAN FRANCISCO W)-Nikita Khrushchev bounced around the
n Francisco area on tour yesterday, gaily pulling the unexpected,
%ding hats with a longshoreman, and speaking of friendship.
The Soviet Premier's day-long travels, including a harbor boat
p and a journey 60 miles south to a San Jose computer plant, led
to a civic dinner last night at which he was the principal speaker.
During his tour yesterday, the Soviet Premier said Russia is

boats. The shift-Khrushchev said
90 per cent of the cruisers are be-
ing junked-is no surprise. Ameri-
can admirals have been warning
'.for years of the increasing strength
of the Soylet submarine fleet.
But, said Khrushchev, "We are
now catching herring with our
submarines." And that, according
to Russia's Minister for Cultural
Exchange, Georgi Zhukov, is no
joke. Especially equipped subma-
rines are searching under the sur-
face for fish.

FPA Adopts Statement Against Bias

IFC.Asked v
To Give Help
To Chapters
Passed after Debate
On Vetoed Addition
The Fraternity Presidents' As-
sembly adopted a statement
against "arbitrary selectivity". at
the recent Fraternity Presidents'
Retreat at Island Lake.
The Interfraternity Council is
"to endeavor to assist local chap-
ters and will work dirctly with
their national organizations to-
ward the voluntary elimination of
arbitrary selective practices, as
well as written restrictions."
The motion was passed after
rather spirited discussion on -an
amendment proposed by Ken
Stuart,, '60BAd, president of Delta
Kappa Epsilon.
Withhold Privileges
The amendment called for the
IFC to withhold all fraternity
privileges it regulates from any
local chapter which either does
not vote for elimination of the
arbitrary selectivity clause from
its national constitution or does
not vote to gain exemption from
the clause of the local chapter.
It failed by a large majority.
After the failure of'the amend-
ment, the passage of the original
motion progressed with compara-
mively .lttle debate.
The policy is to serve-as a guide
toward the elimiration of bias
practices of member fraternities.
The motion introduced in the
rFC's executive :committee's re-
port, given by,Paul:Becker,160E
says that the IFC recognizes that
such practices are a question of
Called Intelligent Approach
Arbitrary selective practice was
held to be "the automatic dis-
crimination against a man de-
pendent upon race, religion, back-
ground or similar artificial criteria
without regard to other personal
characteristics," by Reed Jenney,
'60E, IFC treasurer.
Speaking for the motion, Bob
Brown, '60BAd, president of Alpha
Tau Omega, one of the fraternities
affected by the motion, called it
a "step in the right direction" and
an "intelligent approach to a seri-
ous problem."
Brown felt "progress in this area
must necessarily proceed very1
slowly" for "in order to be effec-
tive, changes must come from
He felt if changes are pressured
upon a fraternity by an outside
group, it could only cause resent-
ment and "the progress which has
been made recently" would be lost.

that the executive committee will

mentation of the policy and report

Study Urged
By Williams
Governor Addresses.
International Council
Governor G. Mennen Williams
told a group of 60 distinguished
scholars last night the modern
world needs to reinforce the be-
lief in man as an "end to himself."
The conference includes repre-
sentatives of 15 nationalities to
the fifth International Council
for Philosophy and Humanistic
Studies. It will be held at the Uni-
versity until Thursday under the
auspices of the United Nations
Education, Scientific and Cultural
Williams continued that the
study of liberal arts is especially
important at this time when the
idea of the individual is in Jeopar-
dy. The humanities help each man
find his own identity.
Notes Creativity
* "We are in danger of creating
a human robot whose urge to con-
form overpowers his own creativ-
ity," he said. "The race to outer
space makes it too easy to neglect
the inner spirit."
Discussing the role of govern-
ment and the humanities, Wil-
liams noted that it can provide
the opportunities under which the
humanities can function, but can-
not force their acceptance.
He added that Michigan is
"quite conscious of the need for
encouraging all manner of edu-
cational explorations."
He urged the scholars to de-
stroy the myth that academic
people live in "ivy towers" by
speaking to the people to "inject
the wisdom and imagination of
liberal and humanistic thinking
into the market place and the
area of political debate."
Discussions Public
The General Assembly, which
began Friday, is the first meet-
ing in the United States.
Public, discussions on the role
of humanities in a technological
and urbanized world will be held
from 9:30 a.m. to noon and from
2 to 5 p.m. tomorrow, also from
9:30 a.m. to noon Thursday, in
the Clements Library.

Don A. Weir, University football

country, Lim has found that most
people do not recognize him. To
insure his anonymity, his address

A political science major, he in-
tends to go into international law
or diplomacy. He is currently tak-
ing 18 hours of credit including
diplomatic history of the United
States, American literature,
French, a philosophy and two poli-
tical science courses.
Received Letters
Lim has received between 60 and
70 letters from people who have
read about his case and has found
them "most encouraging."
. None of them have been abusive,
but some of them have contained
"fundamentalist" religious pamph-
lets, the Methodist student said.
Included in his communications
,have been two offers of sponsor-
ship ;to the universities of Minne-
sota and Wisconsin.
He intends to stay at the Uni-
versity, however, since so many
arrangements have been made for
his convenience.
"Student Teacher"
Born in Singapore, Lim gradu-
ated from high school in 1949 after
which he taught fifth grade Eng-
lish and geography as a type of
"student teacher." He decided to
attend the University because of
good reports from his sister who:
is a University graduate and be-
cause of the University's good
academic reputation throughout
the world.
He is very grateful to both the
University administrators and the
students for their understanding
and assistance.

Impounded bicycles will be
stored in-the University's Storage
Building until they can be re-
deemed by their owners. They will
be released upon the receipt of a
city license and the payment of a
three dollar service fee.
It was stressed by the Office for
Student Affairs that the threeI
dollar service fee was not a fine'
to penalize the students, but the
cost incurred in impounding andI
storing the bicycles.
In the past, students have been'
able to redeem their bicycles ev-
ery Saturday ,from 9 a.m. to noon,
but the Office of Student Affairs
indicated that the building may
be open during the week if the
number of bicycles being im-
pounded should rise.
Implementation of the plan,
first mapped in July, was delayed

ing situation by voluntary means,

Fall Registration
To Top 24,000
At the start of classes yesterday,
total registration figures showed
the University holding the line
against upward-creeping enroll-
Total enrollment in University
residence credit programs now
numbers 22,866, as compared with
22,856 at the opening of school
last fall.
An addition of at least 1,151
late registrants should bring the
final figure to about 24,017, 'Ed..
ward G. Groesbeck, director of the
Office of Registration and Rec-
ords, predicted late yesterday.
Little Gain
The 100 person increase over
last fall enrollment is "practical-
ly maintaining the status quo,"
Groesbeck said. In, 19581 approxi-
mately 725 more students entered
the University than in 1957; the
enrollment rise from 1956 to 1957
was about 1,037.
! Fewer students have enrolled.
this year in literary school, engi-
neering, business administration,
law; nursing and public health.
Literary school enrollment at
this time last fall was 7,212, and
is now 7,163. Engineering enroll-
ment last fall was 3,281, and is
now 3,212. In business administra-
tion, 915 students are now regis-
tered, as against last year's 1,025.
Decrease in Some
The law school will have 24les
students, nursing school will have
26 less, and the public, health
schdol will have 21 less.
Enrollment gains were made in
the medical and dentistry schools,
education school, architecture
school, pharmacy school and at
the University's Flint branch.
So far, the University's newly
opened Dearborn center. lists a
33 person enrollment.
Others Gain
Medical students have jumped
from 1,069 to 1,135, and dentistry
students from 426 to 462. RegIs-
tration in architecture and de-
sign is up by 42 persons. Phar-
may school records .a 25 person
increase, and the Flint branch a
60 person increase.
Groesbeck attributed the "sta-
tus quo" to admissions office
"stringent selection." The rigid
entrance policy employed this
year "is explained by the fact we
can't keep on adding more stu-
dents without more facilitiest he
