By KENNETH MELDOWNEY,
The new Student Government
Council plan approved over the
summer by the SGC Plan Clarifi-
cation Committee will be dis-
cussed at the Council meeting at
7:30 p.m. today.
The aspect of the new plan de-
bated most heatedly was the see-
tion permitting a review ,of any
of SGC's actions deemed "un-
reasonable."
Two of the three students, Bar-
bara Maier, '59, former League.
president and Mort Wise, '59,
former Council executive , vice-
president, opposed any review not
limited to merely jurisdictional
questions or procedural irregular-
ities.'
Wise became so angered follow-
ing the passage of the substantive

review clause he left the meeting
room. Before he left he said he
could not continue to consider a
plan directly contrary to his be-
liefs.
A substitute motion by Miss
Maier and Wise limiting the re-
view to cases "contrary- to the
great weight of evidence"\ failed
by a vote of seven to two.'
The other criteria for review,
procedural irregularities and jur-
isdiction, were approved without
lengthy debate.
Ron Gregg, '60, SGC president,
differed from the other two stu-
dent members of the committee in
feeling substantive review would
be helpful. If the "unreasonable
action" clause was not included it
would be impossible for the com-
mittee on referral to give advice
in many cases, he said.

NREH
Wise insisted that the review
should only come on basic issues
and not on small points in which
a mere difference of opinion
might be the basis for an overrul-
ing of an SGC decision.
He declared since SOC had
passed a. resolution stating they
were in favor of review only in
cases where the decision of SGC
was "contrary to the great weight
of evidence," any vote against
this could be considered a vote
against one of the three groups
represented.
However, Gregg countered, say-
ing that since the -resolution had
been passed many Council mem-
bers had said they were in favor
of review being based on "unrea-
sonable action."

ENROLLMENT SOARS-Flint, the University's two-year branch, hit a record enrollment of 451 this
fall. The first full-fledged college established beyond the :bounds of Ann Arbor, Flint opened in 1956
with a total enrollment of 167 juniors. Enrollment grew to 399 the following year, and this year, a
52-person increase is expected. Headquarters for the college is the Mott Memorial Building.

Enrollment totals for the Uni-
versity's two - year Flint branchI
reached- a record. number of 451C
this fall.
This serves as further proof that
the . change in. University policy
and the structure .of institutions
of higher education in the state,
reached in 1956 with the opening
of the Flint College, was not in
vain..
For the first time a large uni-
versity hadrcollaborated with a
city-supported junior college in an
effort to provide a four-year edu-
cational program leading to a
bachelor of arts degree. And, for
the first time, the University had
established a full-fledged college
beyond the bounds of Ann Arbor
When the program began that
fall, the 167 juniors enrolled and
the faculty were housed in facil-
ities borrowed from Junior College
Letters Back
Chheg Lim
Only two of the 10 or 12 letters
to the University concerning
Chheng Guan Lim, '61, have been
unfavorable, Dean of Men Walter
B. Rea said recently.
Of the two criti~cal letters, one
attacked the University for its
size and impersonality that al-
lowed a student to disappear for
four years.
Another criticized the Univer-
sity for readmitting Lim, charg-
ing that he was a mentally un-
balanced person who was taking a
place that could befilled by a
"healthy American student."
Sen Philip Hart (R-Mich.) and
Rep. Charles Diggs (D-Detroit
both called the University to urge
that Lim be readmitted and of-
fered to contact the immigration
,authorities: on his behalf.
Funds totaling approximately
$200 have been donated to Lim by
various individuals, including $1
from a 61-year-old school teach-
efrom Brooklyn, Rea said. An
account has been established in a
local bank.
Lim has also been contacted by
the' American Broadcasting Com-
pany and has gotten two calls
from Hollywood movie studios.
Chheng had spent the four years
under the rafters of the First
Methodist Church here. He had
subsisted on leftovers from church
dinners.
He had gone into seclusion to
save "face" after an unhappy bout
with his studies.

SAN FRANCISCO - The AFL-
CIO leadership agreed yesterday
on, a seemingly iron clad system
for ending inter-union strife by
submitting disputestoarbitration.
N e ut r a l s on an' arbitration
board would hand down binding
decisions.
The plan, endorsed by top Fed-
eration leaders, is designed to
solidify the merged labor move-
ment by creating a sure way for
settling such family squabbles as
led to the 1935 split of organized
labor into the rival AFL and CIO.

French, dean of the college, re-
ported.
The sixteenth college of the Uni-
versity, he added, is "an integral
Part of the University as a whole,"
just as the nursing school on the
main campus is.
"We operate as-if we were run-
ning our'program in Ann Arbor,"
Dean French commented, but re-
tain flexibility to meet local needs.
Part of this flexibility is demdn-
strated in the cooperative efforts of
Flint College and JC in the use of
buildings, scheduling of vacations
and examination periods and co-
ordination of JC courses to fit the
prerequisites of University courses.
"Every time we've turned around
we've found we're doing something
entirely new to the University,"
Dean French noted, citing current
construction of the joint JC, senior,
college library which is expected to
be completed by next summer.
Serve Several
Some libraries serve several.col-
leges, he explained, but the mutual,
effort and responsibility in the
shared Flint campus is probably
unique in the nation, he explained.
Despite the proximity of JC and
the numerous cooperative ventures,
Flint College retains the academic
standards of the University and
attempts to bring a touch of Ann
Arbor to its campus.
University professors from main
campus are frequently invited to
lecture, present concerts and dis-
play artistic* creations for the Flint
students who also travel to Ann
Arbor for major events as football
games, concerts and guest lectures.

UN Delays,
Red China.,
A cceptance
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (iP --
The United States succeeded again
yesterday in getting the United
Nations to sidetrack for another
year the question of admitting
Communist China.
But despite recent turmoil in'
Asia for which the West blamed
the Chinese Reds the victory mar-
gin was one vote less than last
year.
By a vote of 44-29 with 9 ab-
stentions the General Assembly
approved a United States resolu-
tion asking that it postpone any
consideration of proposals either to
admit the Chinese Reds or exclude
the Chinese Nationalists..
Ninth Time
It was the ninth straight year
the United Nations had side-,
tracked the Red China member-
ship issue.
By its action the Assembly re-
jected Soviet Premier Nikita
Klyushchev's personal plea here
last week that it was high time to
kick out the Chinese Nationalists
and install the Chinese Reds as
one of the major United Nations
powers.
The vote last year on an identi-
cal resolution was 44-28 with nine
abstentions. There were some
switches this year. Ghana, a new
member, joined the many Asian-
African nations opposing the
United States stand.
Laos Changes
This year Laos changed its vote
from abstaining to yes. The South-
east Asia kingdom has accused
Peiping of encouraging North Viet
Nam in acts ofaggression along
the Northern border. A United Na-
tions subcommittee is currently in
Laos investigating the charges.
Cuba cracked the hitherto solid
position of the 20-nation Latin-
American bloc in supporting the
United States position by abstain-
ing.
Greece, which abstained last'
year, joined the yes vote. Its vote
last year reflected unhappiness
with the Western delegations over
their position on Cyprus.

DEFEAT INDIANS:

White Sox Cop American League Flag

CLEVELAND ()')-The Chicago
White Sox last night won the
American League pennant, their
first in 40 years.
The clincher came on a 4-2 vic-
tory over Cleveland, the margin
being consecutive, sixth-inning
homers by Al Smith and. Jim
Rivera. That gave Chicago a 41/x
game lead over the Indians, with
three Chicago and four Cleveland
games left.
Loads Bases
This blue chip game before
54,293 in Cleveland's huge Lake-.
front Stadium ended with a dra-
matic game-ending double play
after Cleveland had loaded the
bases in the last of the ninth.
The winner was Chicago's grand
old man: of pitching, 39-year-old
Early Wynn, although he failed to
finish.
With the crowd in bedlam, relief
ace Gerry Staley got Vic Power
to smash the first pitch on the
ground to Chicago shortstop Luis
Aparicio, who raced to second for
the force play and then threw to
first to nip Power by an eyelash.
Manager Al Lopez quickly re-
placed Wynn with his other ace,
young Bob Shaw, when Cleveland
shaved Chicago's lead to 4-2 in the
sixth.
NO Prints
The renting of prints from
the student art print loan col-
lection. has been postponed un-'
til further notice. The collection

WASHINGTON - President
Dwight .D. Eisenhower expects to
ask an election year Congress to
balance the budget, halt indirect
financing, lift bond interest ceil-
ings and overhaul the tax laws.
Outlining this course, Senate
Republican Leader - Everett M.
Dirksen (R-fll.), made it clear he
expects Eisenhower to bear down
again in 1960 against what the Ad-
ministration calls unnecessary
spending.
On the other side, Senate Ma-
jority Leader Lyndon B. Johnson
(D-Texas), said his party will not
play politics to the point where
its actions would paralyze the di-
vided government.

GAME RESULTS-Constant phone calls and visitors came to The
Daily offices last night, asking the results of the Chicago-Cleve-
land game. Here four eager souls, await the final results over the
Associated Press teletype.

It was the 21st victory against
10 defeats for the 39-year-old
Wynn. In the top of the sixth, a
former Indian, Al Smith, and
Jungle Jim Rivera spanked back-
to-back homers off Jim (Mudcat)
Grant, who relieved starter Jim
Perry at the start of that inning.
Those blows wrapped up the
game and pennant for the hungry
White Sox.
Both Lopez and Cleveland's de-
posed manager, Joe Gordon, di-
rected this game with every trick
they had in the book. Lopez used

Kick Off Your Ear-But Do Do, It Here

Charles Kozoll, '61A&D, Daily personnel director, is searching for
chiefs.
"There are enough Indians on campus," he smiled.
The chiefs Charles is looking for are trainees for The Daily. "We
have something to offer," he declared. (He meant it.) He cited the
advantages for all to hear-the sense of accomplishment in working
for the outstanding college daily newspaper; the lasting friendships
made within the Student Publications Bldg., 420 Maynard.
Selma Sawaya, Spec., associate personnel director, asked in-
terested individuals, whoever they might be, to attend one of the
trainee meetings this week. "They will be held at 7:30 p.m. today, 4:15
and 7:15 p.m. tomorrow and 4:15 p.m. Friday," she declared. "We
train you ourselves," she said. "Come give us a try."
Charles Agreed
She said (and Charles agreed) that several. types of work were
available. The editorial staff, the business staff, the sports staff and
the photography staff all need new faces, new blood, new ideas,
Morley Gwirtzman, '60SW, associate business manager, cited his
case. He returned to it immediately after telling about the business
staff. "This staff gives you business experience," he noted.
Fred- Katz, '62Ph, said sports writers are in demand. "We go to
all the away games," he said. "We need people to run things here
