Bricker Proposal,

alendar Committee

Subject of Debate To Consult Faculties


Daily-Don Campbell
Wolverine Sextet Tops Spartans, 3-1

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an interpretive article dealing with the pro-
posed Bricker Amendment to the Constitution concerning the treaty-making
powers of the President.)
The controversial.Bricker Amendment to curb treaty-making pow-
ers of the President may be the hottest legislative potato yet handled
by the Eisenhower Administration if it comes before the Senate later
this month. as expected.
At least that's the opinion of newsmen and experts watching
arguments shape up on the touchy issue.
THE ADMINISTRATION has gone qn record as flatly opposed
to the Bricker proposal, supporting instead a compromise measure
introduced 'by Senate Majority Leader Knowland July 22.
Attempts so far to secure the persistant Sen. Bricker's agree-
ment to the Knowland substitute have failed.
Meanwhile the Ohio lawmaker has piled up a roster of 63 other
senators as co-sponsors for his amendment. Sixty-four are needed
for a majority.
THE PRESENT Bricker Amendment is a revised version of Senate:
Joint Resolution 130 and was reported to the Senate bolstered by a
nine to five favorable vote from the judiciary committee June 15.
Administration opposition to the proposed amendment led
to the compromise Knowland Amendment introduced July 22 to
which the President has pledged his unconditional support.
Bricker refused to accept the compromise and before any action
could be taken, Congress adjourned.
BASIC DIFFERENCES of the two proposals are as follows: Two
transfers of present treaty-making powers would result from the
In the first case Congressional control over foreign relations
would be increased at the expense of the Administrative arm of
At present the Constitution entrusts the conduct of foreign
affairs to the Executive.
* * * *
SECONDLY, responsibility for enacting legislation necessary to-!
carry out provisions of a treaty would rest exclusively with the States
on all matters not within the scope of Federal Constitutional power.
The substitute Knowland Amendment provides in essence in
article 2 that all votes for and against a treaty shall be recorded in
the Journal of the Senate.
Article 3 of the same measure provides that appropriate legisla-
tion by Congress will be necessary to make a treaty effective as inter-
nal law only when the Senate so stipulates in its ratification.
The first articles of both amendments are essentially the same.
Provision is specifically made that treaties and executive agreements
be subject to the same Judiciary review for Constitutionality as other
government legislation.

up a pass at center ice from

Crary Plan
By Stason
Crisler Objections
To Proposal Told
The University Calendar Com-
mittee yesterday voted to consult
"the various faculties and other
interested units of the University"
before making recommendations
for any changes in the present
school year schedule.
The move came as a surprise at
a meeting which was expected
merely to approve the final copy
of the committee's report to the
Dean's Conference.
THE COMMITTEE report would
have recommended that "the
Crary plan (for an earlier school
year) be forwarded to the Deans
for their consideratioi:."
The Crary plan features an
uninterrupted first semester be-
ginning at the end of August
and ending with finals before
Christmas, a one month be-
tween-semester recess at Christ-%
mas, and- a school year ending
in late May.
The decision not to forward the
Crary plan to the Dean's confer-
ence was especially based on
strong objection to the plaii by
Dean E. Blythe Stason of the
Law School and the reported op-
position of athletic director Hler-.
bert 0. (Fritz) Crisler, who is out
of town.

DEAN STASON, whose motion
to poll interested groups on the
calendar change was finally adopt.
ed by the committee, also argued
that to send a report to the Dean's
Conference without recommend-
ing some particular plan would be
"passing the buck."
Committee Chairman Assist-
ant tq the President Erich A.
Walter said yesterday's vote will
probably mean another semes-
ter of gathering information be-
fore the Committee will be
ready to vote on any proposal
,or calendar ,evision.
