Lectures on
May Cease
Fiscal Difficulties
Cause of Trouble
Rising costs and seeming lack
of student support may doom the
annual marriage relations lec-
Ivan W. Parker, chairman of
the faculty - student committee
sponsoring the lectures, said yes-
terday that the educational series
has not been scheduled this fall.
a. * *
THE LECTURES could still be
held next spring, but only if
enough students and student
groups show interest in supporting
them, he said.
Committee members fear that
the series might go in the red
this year. That nearly happened
last year, when ticket sales lag-
ged perilously.
A backlog of about $200 from
previous years was all that saved
the series from bankruptcy then.
THIS YEAR rising costs in lec-
turers' fees have underlined the
need for student groups to back
the series, Parker declared. Their
fees have gone up as much as $50,
he said.
Parker estimated the cost of
the series at around $1500.
When the lectures, designed to
prepare students for marriage,
were first offered in prewar years,
campus organizations underwrote
the expenses.
SINCE THE WAR, the com-
mittee, relying on prospects of
sell-out crowds, has sponsored the
lectures on its own.
Last year the seniors, grad-
uates and their wives-groups
originally given sole privilege to
hear the lectures-failed to fill
the hall.
Trying to meet expenses, the
committee allowed students of all
classes to attend the six talks. At
the end of the season it still found
itself scraping the bottom of the
financial barrel.
"The lecture series' existence
depends entirely on the support
students give it," Parker said.
Campus Waits
To Get 'New
Garg Friday
The GARGOYLE, student hu-
mor magazine coming out Friday,
has been completely revamped this
Its emphasis has been shifted
from all-humor to generalhliterary
magazine. The editors are trying
to provide the campus and alumni
with a more truly representative
campus magazine, Managing Ed-
itor Douglas Scott Parker said.
BUT THIS DOES not mean that
thle GARGOYLE is going com-
pletely high-brow, he said. Prac-
ticallydhalf the magazine is still
devoted to humor. The GAR-
GOYLE "still wants to put a little
joy into people's lives," Parker
However, it isn't so much the
kind of material that is going
into the new GARGOYLE as
the quality of the material that
counts, said Parker. Included in

the November issue' are two re-
cent Hopwood winners: Richard
Kraus' "Gunna Play Trumpet
with Beechet," and the Fresh-
man Hopwood winner-Robert
Uchitelle's "World Is on Our
The members of the staff point-
ed out that putting out the new
kind of magazine has received an
extra amount of effort, "sweat,
blood and tears." They mentioned
that this was the reason that no
attempt' was made to publish an
October issue this year.
Although the magazine is direct-
ed toward a general reading pub-'
lic, students will receive a special'
subscription rate of one dollar for
five issues. Single copies will be
25 cents apiece. Subscriptions can
be bought at the GARGOYLE of-

Monopoly Threat
Seen by Machiup
The future of our free society depends on the prevention of a con-
centration of economic power in the hands of a few, declared Prof.
Fritz Machlup of Johns Hopkins University in a lecture here yesterday.
Prof. Machlup was the first of a series of twelve eminent econom-
ists, who will lecture at the University during the current academic
* * * *
ANY CONTROL of the economy by monopolistic groups will ul-
timately lead to an authoritarian government, he explained. Monopo-
listic practices on the part of business today are detrimental to the
economy and are aiding in bringing about a situation in which an
absolute type of government might evolve, he said.

Checks and balances in the
Federal Government have pre-
vented successful action to re-
strain monopoly in the past, he
pointed out.
"Actually government practices
have fostered monopoly more than
they have prevented it," Prof.
Machlup said.
* * *
FOR MANY YEARS the courts
refused to punish monopolists un-
less they were violating the very
letter of the law, the economist
declared. This made anti-trust
laws very easy to evade, he con-
Lately as the courts have be-
come more liberal the attitude
of Congress has changed, and
many acts have favored monop-
olistic practices, Prof. Machlup

Anti-trust laws have never been
aggressively administered he said.
This is due to the fact that meagre
appropriations from Congress al-
lowed an average of only twelve
lawyers to the anti-trust division
of the Justice Department for the
first 40 years of the present cen-
tury, he related."

been increased but a loop-hole in
the anti-merger portion of present
anti-trust legislation provides
monopolists with an opportunity
to continue their practices," Prof.
Machlup declared.
Ih the present inflationary per-
iod monopoly is actually holding
the line in prices, he said. "This is
causing a mis-allocation of re-
sources," he charged. In normal
times monopoly keeps prices high-
er than they would be otherwise,"
he added.
New Comet
Sweeps Skies
In West U.S.
The most beautiful comet since
Halley's paid an earthly visit 38
years ago was sweeping through
the skies last night-and giving
astronomers a merry chase in try-
ing to chart its course.
A Californian got the first
American glimpse of the new com-
et-and an Arizona astronomer
reported later that it appeared
there moving in a southwesterly
This means folks in southern
United States stand a good chance
to see the phenomenon today just
before dawn; whether those in
more northerly regions such as
Chicago, New York and Boston
get a view remains in doubt.
Dr. Dinsmore Alter, director of
Griffith Observatory in Los An-
geles, said he followed the comet
for an hour with naked eye and
field glasses and called it "the
most beautiful comet since Hal-
ley's in 1910."

Soviet Bloc
Styinies UN
Dulles Says
Russians Deny
Greek Filibuster
PARIS - (IP) - American dele-
gate John Foster Dulles accused
the Soviet bloc tonight of trying
to frustrate the United Nations
Assembly with a filibuster in the
Greek case.
The Soviet bloc heatedly de-
nied the charge, but members of
the assembly's 58-nation political
committee showed their impa-
tience by clamping a 10-minute
limit on all future speeches in the
TH19 VOTE to restrict the dis-
cussions was 42 to 1. Ales Bebler,
Yugoslav delegate, cast the lone
vote against the limit.
Dulles spoke up after Babler
had demanded roll call votes on
almost every decision the com-
mittee made. For the last two
days the committee has been
moving slowly through a para-
graph-by-paragraph vote on a
resolution sponsored by the
United States, Britain, France
and China.
Dulles told the committee the
filibustering tactics of the Slav
minority had become apparent
and said:
"If it (the filibustering) con-
tinues, it will frustrate the effe-
tiveness of the General Assembly
even more than the veto obstructs
the Security Council."
* * *
DULLES SAID HE was certain
the committee would support any
move the chairman, Premier Paul-
Henri Spaak of Belgium, might
make to stop the filibuster.
Bebler told Dulles the purpose
of the Soviet group was to "give
you time to think because the
thing you are doing is danger-
ous to the peace and well-being
of countries."

Drive Toward
Nanking Area
NANKING-(/P)-Suchow, gate-
way to Nanking, was menaced by
three Chinese Communist columns
driving in hard from the North,
West and East.
Simultaneously, Communist
guerrillas knocked out a 100-mile
stretch of the rail linking Suchow
with Nanking. Suchow is 170 miles
by air and 208 miles by rail north-
west of Nanking.
Adding to the troubles of the

Miners Rush
To Uranium
In Canada
W)--Discovery of Uranium, the
precious metal used in atomic
power, has brought a scene north
of here that is reminiscent of but
still dwarfed by the famed gold
rush a century ago.
More than 225 claims reportedly
have been staked in the Pancake
Bay area. Most of them have been
staked by Canadian mining engin-
eers equipped with Geiger count-
ers. One of the prospectors is a
widow with a small child.
Robert Campbell, Toronto min-
ing man, first ran across a two-
inch seam of shiny black Pitch-
bleride, the ore from which Uran-
ium and Radium is obtained,
about a month ago. It had been
bared by erosion.
The strike was made in the area
between Batchawana, on the east
shore of Lake Superior, and the
Montreal River, 70 miles north of
here. Mining experts reported the
Pitchblende ore from the 22-mile
area between Pancake Bay and

reported by a spokesman for Hous-

He said Woods will seek author-

ages in behalf of tenants, in cases
of overcharge. Criminal penalties

also will be sought, the spokesman
As a still further tightening, it
was stated, the armed forces prob-
ably will request that Woods be
empowered to restore rent ceilings
in areas of revived defense activ-
ity, in cases where control has
been lifted.
