Confer on Berlin
'Big Two' Talk on Cold War Issues
In Congenial Private Discussion
GETWYSBURG(AP)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Pre-
mier Nikita ' S. Khrushchev sparred yesterday r over the somber,
dangerous issue of Berlin and Germany-the pivotal problem dividing
an uneasy world.
The chiefs of government of the world's two most powerful
nations came to grips withthis question in nearly seven hours of
conferences. For about half that time, the President and the Premier
-were alone, except for interpreters.

A West Quad kitchen fire early'
yesterday provided a few moments'
entertainment for residents, but
resulted in very little damage.
Overheated grease was pegged as
the immediate cause of the blaze
which flared up in one of the
kitchen's deep-frying units around
10:50 a.m. Amid the cheers of
rain-drenched students in an ad-
jacent courtyard, highly-pressur-
ized str.eams of water from two
city fire trucks swiftly extingished
Preliminary estimates indicate
that damage was slight and prob-
ably confined to the fryers them-
selves. As residence halls officials
began tallying up the damage and
tracing the cause of the overheat-

Missouri rose from the land of the dead yesterday to snatch a
literally last-second football victory from Michigan, 20-15.
Two seconds were illuminated on dreary Michigan Stadium's
scoreboard when second-string quarterback Bob Haas sneaked over
from the one-yard line that destroyed a great second-half Wolverine

field goal of his life to practically assure Coach Bump Elliott a 15-14

A UNIVERSITY is many things-hence its name.
It is never static, but organic, constantly changing, adapting to
new ideas, struggling to keep abreast of the sumtotal of human
knowledge which is growing with frightening speed.
The continual process of change is subtle and hardly noticeable
except in the long run. And such slow movement does not easily lend
new conditions, renovating archaic traditions, experimenting with
itself to coverage by a newspaper meeting a daily deadline.
Stories from the realm of academics will be generally long and
detailed-but extremely important. For they deal with the questions
most vital to the University:
SIZE: Enrollment is near a record 24,000 and the University is
spreading out across the Huron River to the North Campus where
more and more buildings will rise. Classes are becoming steadily larg-
er. Communication between faculty, students, and administration is
gradually becoming more difficult.
The possible result? Dilution of University quality, many say.
