in a pre-Memorial Day parade.
Explaining the reason for hold-
ing the parade two days in ad-
vance of the regular National holi-

Thomas A. FitzGerald said it was

Immediately following the pa-

Musetti, prep athlete who mysteriously forsook Michigan for Michigan

SL To Drop
Next Term
Vote To Accept
AIM Equipment
By a unanimous vote the Stu-
dent Legislature last night decided
to discontinue sponsorship of Tug
Weekend, including the tradition-
al Soph Satire and tug-of-war.
The new policy will not prevent
SL from encouraging or assisting
other student groups undertaking
these projects but will remove SL's
responsibility for the activities.
Currently the League, the Union
and the Wolverine Club are study-
ing plans to hold some kind of
Tug Weekend program during the
November 8-9 football weekend
when Cornell plays here.

ACTING ON the controversial
AIM office equipment problem,
members agreed by a close 19-15
margin to accept the equipment
and, in return, to loan the "Little
Club" up to $160. When AIM dis-
banded earlier this semester, their
officers still held possession of the
office supplies.
Dissension has centered
around the question of whether
the supplies should go to the
new Tri-Quad Council or be held
for a future organization model-
ed after AIM.
AIM representatives have char-
ged that the Tri-Quad Council
helped bring about the downfall
of their organization and request-
ed that the equipment not go to
the Council.
* * *
LAST WEEK a similar SL mo-
tion failed after heated debate in
which some members argued that
SL would be considered as favor-
ing the AIM position if it accept-
ed the office material. However,
Bob Ely, '54, who sponsored last
night's motion, emphasized that
it should not be "construed in any
way to condemn or condone the
events surrounding the disbanding
of AIM."
Included in the transfer are a
typewriter, a mimeograph ma-
chine, filing cabinets and mis-
cellaneous supplies. The equip-
ment will be collateral for any
loan extended to the Little Club..
A proviso in the agreement would
turn the materials back to a re-
cognized campus group similar to
AIM if such a group included re-
presentatives of independent men
living outside of University dormi-
tories. If no organization meeting
this specification is set up by June
1, 1960, the equipment will go free
and clear to SL.
A separate motion by Keith
Beers, '52E, to buy the, equipment
outright for $125 or less was de-
feated 13-12.
Members briefly discussed a
University suggestion that SL
move from their present head-
quarters at 122 S. Forest to the
Journalism Bldg. on State St. Phil

Rhee Ignores
Vote to End
Martial .Law
By The Associated Press
Korean President Syngman Rhee
ignored the National Assembly
yesterday and continued martial
law in Pusan, the Korean capital.
Allied quarters were reportedly
trying to coax him to relent. There
also were reports that even some
of the, South Korean Army's
higher officers were beginning to
doubt the wisdom of Rhee's'course.
The Army has backed Rhee in his
long feud with the Assembly.
The Assembly yesterday voted
96 to 3 to end the martial law
Rhee proclaimed for Pusan last
Saturday. Rhee did not comply,
apparently on the theory that his
implied powers under the consti-
tution took precedence over an
act which allows the assembly to
end martial law.

Matthew B. Ridgway as European Defense Commander.
At least one rioter was killed, 20 police needed hospital treatment

was fatally injured in the fight-

An American reporter at the

Rise in Food
ernment last night authorized an
estimated 350,000 retail grocers to
boost their ceilings about a penny
each on hundreds of food items.
Price Stabilizer Ellis Arnall said
the increases mean the public food
bill will go up between 100 and 150
million dollars a year.
* * *
ARNALL TOLD a news confer-
ence the increases were granted
after repeated requests from the
food industry.
The Office of Price Stabiliza-
tion said that translated into
terms of the family budget, the
increase is expected to average
five cents per week for each fa-
It is said that, percentage wise,
the increase.-is small in relation to
the nearly 32 billion dollar busi-
ness done by the food industry
The higher ceilings, effective
June 2, apply in both independent
and chain stores. They result from
higher markups granted the groc-
ers. A markup is the difference
between cost to the grocer and his
selling price.
On some of the affected items,
OPS said, the higher margins will
not result in higher retail ceilings
or selling prices.
