In German andades for

Court Decision
Hit by Adenauer
By the Associated Press
A constitutional crisis threaten-
ed last night to wreck plans to
bring West Germany into armed
alliance with the West.
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer's
government attacked a ruling by
the full Federal Constitutional
Court that its decision in a newly
opened hearing on the legality of
the West German Peace Contract
and the six-nation European Army
Treaty would be binding in test
cases to come up later before the
two 11-judge Senates or chambers
of the court.
THE BATTLE hinges on whether
the Constitutional Court will rule
that a two-thirds majority is
necessary for parliamentary rati-
fication of the treaties to end the
Allied occupation and bring a half
million German soldiers into the
European army.
Adenauer contends that only
a simple majority is necessary.
But his socialist opponents, foes
of rearmament, declare the pacts
require a change of the Consti-
tution and thus need a two-
thirds majority. The Adenauer
government has no hope of get-
ting this.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Air Force
yesterday finished moving all its
jet fighter bases in Germany to
positions west of the Rhine River.
This completed a major step in
the building of Europe's defenses
against any threat of Soviet at-

Harrell said Battles visited the
home of a prospective football

protest a Student Affairs Com-
mittee requirement that the group
turn over to the Office of Student
Affairs minutes of future meetings
and a list of members present at
The SAC requirements will be
in effect during a probationary
period lasting until April 1.
YOUNG Progressives objected to
the new regulation on the grounds
that it was "discriminatory against
YP" since the same requirement
was not made for other political
clubs. Lines the YP protest would
take were not defined.
YP members also said they
felt the criticisms of the inter-
nal organization of the group
listed in the SAC statement were
true "on the whole." They in-
dicated they would make the
necessary corrections.
Fulfilling a requirement that a
full slate of officers be elected,
Young Progressives as scheduled
last night voted into office a group
including: Marge Buckley, '53, re-
elected as chairman; Esther Mark,
'55, vice-chairman; Art Davidson,

othy McKay, '53, educational and
cultural director. All four were
elected by acclamation.
A slightly more than quorum
attendance of 13 members was re-
corded at last night's meeting.

YP, a chronic item on the SAC
agenda, has a long record of con-
troversy. In July, 1950, the organ-
ization was suspended for a se-
mester when it was discovered
that the membership list had been
grossly falsified.
The train of events which cul-
minated in yesterday's mandates
began last April, when SAC made
some protest over the Lecture
Committee decision in refusing to
consider the YP petition for form-
er UAW leader William Hood be-
cause of alleged YP "irresponsi-
Later In May, the Lecture
Committee forwarded to the
SAC via President Harlan H.
Hatcher a request for an inves-
tigation of Young Progressive
responsibility. On June 5, SAC
acquitted the group of the gen-
eral charge, but drew up five
suggestions for- improved inter-
nal procedure.
Two weeks ago, it was decided
to review YP progress on the re-
commendations. Last week, Marge
Buckley, '53, chairman, testified
at some length on the subject. On
the basis of her testimony, it was
decided to appoint a special sub-
committee to draw up a list of
A focal issue in the discussions
was the September 30 YP 'meet-
ing, at which novelist Howard Fast
and Rabbi Abraham Cronbach
were allegedly invited to speak.
A statement read yesterday by a
non-member who had attended
the entire meeting directly con-
tradicted Miss Buckley's testi-
mony on three significant points.
SAC concern over minute-tak-
ing rose out of the fact that the
only minutes available were in-
complete, and had been written
from memory by the chairman
some time after the meetings.
Minutes for the last four years
were "misplaced" over the sum-

Alger's Vote
Total Drops
In Recount1
Officials To Sift
Local Vote Today
By the Associated Press
Gov. Williams hung on to a 160
vote gain last night in the recount
of gubernatorial votes on the basis
of reports from 215 precincts in
22 of the 24 counties in which
tallying is under way.
This pushed his lead in the
drawn out contest to 8,778 over
Republican challenger Fred M. Al-
ger Jr. The official canvass of the
Nov. 4 vote gave Williams an edge
of 8,618.
THE RECOUNT of Washtenaw
County votes will get under way
at 9:30 a.n. today in the County
Court House when about 50 work-
ers will begin sifting votes from
precinct two of Superior Township
and three, four and five of Ypsi-
lanti Township.
Ann Arbor's returns will not
be included in the check because
only paper-balloting precincts
are involved in the recount. Lu-
ella M. Smith, county clerk, es-
timates the job will take about
three or four days to complete.
Republican hopes of upsetting
the apparent Williams victory were
sinking lower as Alger failed to
show the strength that had been
anticipated in the earliest counts.
In Lansing, meanwhile, the State
Canvassers Board turned down
without flatly saying "no" the of-
fer of the U. S. Senate subcom-
mittee on elections to pay $5 a
precinct for a simultaneous re-
check of the Potter-Moody sena-
torial race.
And in Washington, Tom Mech-
ling, defeated Democratic candi-
date for U. S. Senator from Ne-
vada, asked the Senate elections
committee to investigate "irregu-
larities and errors" he contends
marked the counting of votes for
his victorious Republican oppon-
ent, Sen. George W. Malone.

Bias Clause
Poll Results
Given to IFC
The results of the Big Ten bias
clause survey were released at the
Interfraternity Council House
President's Assembly last night.
Conducted through the IFC-
Panhel Counseling. Service, the
study revealed that major clause
removal agitation has only recent-
ly occurred at four Big Ten schools
including the University.
* * *
THE ONLY concrete action,
however, has come from admin-
istration, faculty and student pres-
sure at the University of Wiscon-
sin. This has resulted in a re-
quirement by the faculty and the
Board of Regents that fraternities
and sororities remove their clauses
by July 1, 1960.
IFC Human Relations Com-
mittee co-chairman Joan Pruitt,
'53. revealed that as a result of
the move four Wisconsin fra-
ternities have asked the Coun-
seling Service for help in re-
moving their clauses. Miss Pruitt
said she was not able to an-
nounce the names of the frater-
nities at this time, however.
They are the first groups to
seek aid since the local chapter
of Acacia requested the service to
make a study of the prevailing at-
titudes among their other chap-
ters for use at last summer's na-
tional convention.
Although pressure has been
brought to bear on Greeks at Mich-
igan State and Minnesota, little
has been done except the passage
of resolutions suggesting that
houses attempt their own clause
removal action.
Student Legislature - Student
Affairs Committee attempts at
imposing a time limit on local
fraternities and sororities were

President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven's veto and again last spring
by President Harlan H. Hatcher.

Asks Peace
Plan Talks
Mac's Proposal
Asked by General
By the Associated Press
An exchange of messages
cleared the way yesterday for
President-elect Eisenhower, aboard
the USS Helena, to meet face to
face with Gen. Douglas MacAr-
thur and receive the former Far
Eastern Commander's own plan
for ending the Korean War.
Shoving aside any past differ-
ences with MacArthur, Eisenhow-
er radioed a message to the gen-
eral Sunday that "I am looking
forward to informal meetings in
which my associates and I may ob-
tain full benefit of your thinking
and experience" on Korea and the
Far East.

MAC ARTHUR replied Monday:
"I am grateful for your in-
terest in my views." He added
that a successful solution of the
problem "might well become the
key to peace in the world."
The exchange of messages fo-
lowed a MacArthur speech Friday
in which he told the National As-
sociation of Manufacturers in New
York City that he had a peace plan
for Korea and was willing to give
it to Eisenhower if the President-
elect asked for it.
EISENHOWER messaged, "Nat-
urally I and my asoiates in the
new administration, particularly
the secretaries of the state and de-
fense, are vitally concerned about
Korea and the Far East.

of outlining a future program to

the Defense Department said that

ficial declined the use of his name.

Su reme Court Hears
Segregation Arguments
WASHINGTON - (P) - The Supreme Court heard clashing ar-
guments yesterday on a major issue: Is it legal to have separate
schools for Negroes and Whites?
Negro lawyers pleaded with the tribunal to strike down such
segregation as unconstitutional. Opposing attorneys contended that
separation of the races is legal sot

long as educational opportunities
are equal.
THE SUPREME Court, in effect,
was being urged to meet the issue
head-on; to uphold or throw out
a doctrine it laid down in a de-
cision in 1896. It held then that
separate facilities for the races
are constitutional if they are
Teeing off on arguments that
w!-" -un on for three days, Rob-
ert Carter of New York, a Ne-
gro attorney, contended that
"no state has any authority" to
divide its citizens by race.
But Paul E. Wilson, assistant at-
torney general of Kansas, and Jus-
tice Frankfurter from the bench,
pointed out there is a long history
of court decisions and legislative
action built on the doctrine that
separate facilities for the races
are constitutional if they are equal.
