Library To Open


The General Library will b,
open Friday evenings till 10 p.n
beginning Nov. 2, with Sunda
hours under serious consideratioi
by the library.
These results were announced a
last night's Student Legislatur
meeting after a special conferenc
of SL president Len Wilcox wit
President Harlan H. Hatcher, Vic
President Marvin L. Niehuss, Di
rector of University Relation
Arthur L. Brandon and Director o,

The SL motion authorizing the
walkout granted Wilcox the
power to return to the boycotted
bodies when he was satisfied
that action was being taken.
Wilcox, in reporting back to SI
declared that he was "optimistic'
for t revival of Sunday hours a
well. 'Ihe library has promised
decision on the extent and natur
of Sunday service, if any, on o
before Nov. 1.
ACCORDING TO Wilcox. the
esential problems for the library
to considei are whether the library
can be staffed Sunday and the
extent to which the facilities
should be opened--it is generally
conceded that the library should
be open if possible.
Consultations with the Grad-
uate Student Council are sche-
duled by the library to deter-
mine the Sunday nerds of grad-
uate students.
The University Budget Commit-
te will also consider possible in-
creases in the library appropria-
tion. The library staff will like-
wise study the problem.

A brigade of 3,500 men is being
shifted swiftly from the Mediter-
ranean island of Cyprus to Fayid,
on the Great Bitter Lake stretch
of the strategic canal, in the wake
of Egyptian nationalistic rioting
which British troops suppressed
with gunfire. The rioting came
during popular excitement over
Egypt's abrogation of a 1936 de-
fense treaty with Britain.

FIFTEEN transport planes were
used in the movement, expected to
be completed today. The parachute
troopers are joining 40,000 or more
British soldiers and airmen whose
commander, Lt. Gen. George Er-
skine, has declared: "We are not
going to be turned out, forced out
or knocked out."
Meanwhile U.S. Secretary of
State Acheson told a news con-
ference in Washigton the
United States supports the Bri-
tish stand and regards the can-
cellation of the 1936 treaty as
"without validity." He urged
Egypt to reconsider her rejec-

United States, Britain, France
and Turkey to join them as a

round Senate-House conference on
the tax increase bill got nowhere
yesterday, largely because the
widely split House delegation
couldn't agree on what it wants.
The difficulties of the House
spokesmen were hardly a surprise
in view of the makeup of the ma-
jority in that branch which turned
down one$5,732,000,000 conference

All the House delegates have
to do to achieve a solid front is
find common ground for (a) one
group of lawmakers who voted
against the bill on the theory that
it raises taxes too little and puts
too much of the load on small in-
comes, and (b) another group who
opposed the measure with the idea
that less tax money would force
government economy.

KIRK TOLD Vishinsky orally in
their Oct. 5 meeting
1-The armistice developm nts
are "incomprehensible" in the light
of the assurances Russia gave last
June that Moscow favored a mili-
tary armistice which would include
a cease-fire and not involve any
political or territorial matters.
2-The United Nations com-
mand was "surprised and disap-
pointed" by the insistence of the
Communist negotiators upon a
non-military armistice line-the
38th Parallel. He said the UN
command has no intention of
making political decisions with
representatives of Chinese "vol-
unteers" and a "North Korean
regime which enjoys no interna-
tional status."
3-Russia must recognize that
the breakdown of the armistice
talks "would add greatly to the
explosive character of the situa-
tion and might stimulate a course
of events which would be unde-
sirable from the point of view of
both our governments." He re-
affirmed that the UN command is
sincerely desirous of concluding an
4-IT IS HOPED "that the So-
viet Government will act to the
end that the North Korean and
Chinese Communist negotiators
will conclude a realistic armistice
agreement which would afford
safely for both sides and which
does not become involved with po-
litical and territorial issues with
which the governments of the
United Nations must deal."
5-On general relations be-
tween the U.S. and Russia, se-
curity measures being taken by
the Western Allies "are for de-
fense and defense alone." Kirk
said that on specific instructions
of this government he wanted to
assure the Soviet Government
that "the United States has no
