Egyptian Students Steal
Across Mexican Border
aBy JOHN NEUFELD
To Ibrahim Elabd, Spec., Mex-
ico looked just about like his na-
tive Egypt, but he had a hard
time finding that out.
Anxious to go along on the In-
ternational Center's Christmas
tour to Mexico City, he and two
other Egyptian studentsdset all
sorts of diplomatic machinery in
motion two weeks before the trip
started, but they never got visas.
* * *
IT SEEMS THAT Mexico made
a treaty in 1917 about the issue
of visas to visitors. North Amer=
icans don't need visas, and cit=
izens of countries participating in
the 1917 treaty can get their pass=
port stamped ht a consulate.
But citizens of other lands
must secure express permission
from' the Mexican Department
of the Interior before the con-
sul is allowed to issue a visa.
Elabd and his friends called
the Egyptian embassy, the Amer-
ican cultural attache in Mexico,
and other agencies, but failed to
get approval in time.
Undaunted, they left for the
border by auto.
ELABD says Mexican border
guards tried to turn him back at
Laredo, but that the driver just'
kept on going until they were
safely south of the border.
Elabd found many striking
similiarities between Egypt and
Mexico--architecture, food, cli-
mate and social conditions.
ON THE WAY back, the four-
car caravan had no trouble. To,
re-enter the United States it was
simply necessary to show student
ANOTHER UNIVERSITY mem-
ber who made the trip was Dr.
Balbina Serrano, who is working
for a master's degree in public
But unlike the 17 others who
went along on the tour she didI
not have six days for seeing thel
city. Mexico City is her home, and
family visits kept her pretty busy.

ministration drive to get rid of the
Taft-Hartley Law picked up a
little steam in Congress as Sena-

introduced a bill to repeal it and
restore the Wagner Act.

The changes Mr. Truman
wants are the same he sought
twvo years ago. Then, and again

jurisdictional strikes and some
secondary boycotts; prevention
of economic force in disputes
over interpretation of existing
contracts; prevention of strikes
in vital industries where the
public interest is affected; and
a stronger labor eparment.
Thomas also introduced a bill
to boost the present minimum
wage of 40 cents an hour to 75
cents. Mr. ruman asked for
Thomas told the Senate his
bill provides for repea "of the
Taft-Hartley features of the Na-

Act as it was before the Taft-
"The repeal of the features of
the 1947 (Taft-Hartley) law will
call for other legislation and the
President's message called for
other legislation," Thomas said.
"At the same time these other
proposals may be worked out as
amendments or additions to the
National Labor Relations Act as
it stood before the 1947 law."
Thomas previously had indicat-
ed that he favored the "two pack-
age" approach urged by organ-
ized labor. That calls for repeal,
reinstatement of the Wagner Act,

modification of the original Wag-

City managers were likened to
the caboose of a freight train by
Prof. Howard Y. McClusky in an
address before a meeting of a

Prof. McClusky told 30 city
managers that their duty was to
merely initiate policy and then
to hold on like a caboose while
citizen's groups took over.
THE CITY MANAGER type of
government is apt to be a rather
piecemeal affair, said McClusky.
Citizens' committees are
prone to concentrate on specific
need without bothering with a
long-run view, he said.
