STEVENSON GREETED AT WILLOW RUN AIRPORT

Stevenson Discusses Need
For U.S. Economic Growth

Beethoven
Concert Set
For Today
By DAVE KAPLAN
The first performance of the Bee-
thoven Cycle of String Quartets to
be played by the Stanley Quartet
will take place at 3:30 p.m. today
in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Members of the Quartet are Pro-
fessors Gilbert Ross and Emil
Raab, violinists; Oliver A. Edel,
cellist; and Robert Courte, viola,
of the Music School.
The series of six concerts repre-
sents the first performance in
Michigan of the Beethoven Cycle.
Other performances are scheduled
for Oct. 17, Nov. 7 and 21, Dec. 12
and Jan. 9.
Detroit Performances
On the Friday previous to each
concert, the group will also pre-
sent the series at the Rackham Ed-
ucational Memorial in Detroit.
The 16 quartets fall into three
main divisions: The Early Quar-
tets up to 1800, consisting of the six
quartets of Opus 18; the Middle
Quartets up to 1815, consisting of
the three Rasoumovsky Quartets,
Opus 59, the- Harp Quartet and
the Serioso Quartet; and the Late
Quartets to 1825 consisting of four
quartets.
To this list of Late Quartets is
added the Grosse Fugue (op. 133).
Beethoven originally intended the
Fugue to be the last movement of
the B-flat Major Quartet. When it
was first performed, he withdrew
the movement because of the ad-
verse criticism of musicians and
critics alike. The work is still
played today, but rarely as a part
of the Quartet.
Highlighting today's program will
be the "Quartet in E-Flat Major,
op. 127," which introduces the
great last five Beethoven Quartets.
Schumann Praises Work
Completed in 1824, it was per-
formed for the first time a year
later. Robert Schumann's opinion
of the work was that "this Quartet
stands beside the C-sharp Minor
Quartet of Beethoven and some of
Bach's mightiest compositions on
the extreme boundary of all that
has hitherto been attained by hu-
man art and imagination."
The cycle will not be played in
chronological order, but each con-
cert will represent works from
the three periods.
In addition to its public concerts
at the University and those in the
Library of Congress, the Stanley
Quartet has given many concerts
for young people. It has also par-:
ticipated in state and national pro-
fessional and educational confer-
ences,
All concerts of the Beethoven Cy-
cle will take place at 3:30 p.m. in
the Rackham Lecture Hall and are
open to the public free of charge.

ing and increased investment, the
national income will fall."
The governor stressed the fact
that America must grow. He said
our economy must provide 1600
new jobs every day.
"Our welfare depends on the
full use of our resources. We need
2 million new homes a year for
our growing population and t
overcome, in time, the shame of
the slums," he declared.
Gov. Stevenson said, that we
need 300,000 new classrooms, hos-
pital space for 800,000 new beds,
highway system development and
conservation of our top soil.
Commenting on Sen. Everett M.
" Dirksen's appraisal of President
Dwight D. Eisenhower as "our
gentlest president" Stevenson said,
"It seems to me that what some
Republicans need is rest, not re-
sponsibility."
Colombo Plan
Nations Hold
Conference
By the Associated Press
The first New World conference
of the Colombo Plan countries, a
five-billion-dollar cooperative ef-
fort to raise living standards in
Southeast Asia, opens tomorrow
in Ottawa.
Some 70 delegates from 14
countries will attend.
cThe United States, which has
its own Point Four program of
economic assistance to under-de-
veloped countries around the
globe, has been a member of the
Colombo consultative committee
since 1951. It will be represented
at Ottawa by an eight-man dele-
gation headed by Samuel C.
Waugh, assistant secretary of
State for Economic Affairs.
U.S. Role Advisory
This country's role iin the Col-
ombo plan is primarily advisory.
Although the United States has
extended some economic aid di-
rectly to Colombo members, its
chief contribution is providing
technical advice, making avail-
able industrial experts and help-
ing train native students in en-
gineering specialities.
The Colombo plan evolved from
a 1950 meeting of the British
Commonwealth foreign ministers
in Colombo, Ceylon, elaborated la-
ter in a London conference. De-
spite its origin, the Colombo plan
is not limited to Commonwealth
countries. The Philippines and
Thailand, while not full-fledged
members, participate in the pro-
gram and will have observers at
the Ottawa conference.
The contributing countries, in
? -addition to the United Kingdom
and the United States, are Cana-
da, Australia and New Zealand.
The participating countries are
India, ,Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma
Indonesia, Viet Nam, Laos, Cam-
1 bodia, Nepal, the Malayan Federa-
tion, Singapore, North Borneo,:
Brunei and Sarawak.
Six-Year Plans
Each of the participating coun-
tries worked out its own six-year-
plan for economic development.
These programs, drafted in 1951
and speeded by technical aid, ma
chinery and capital investment
from the big cooperating coun-
tries, are now at midpoint.
The International Monetary
Fund has also helped. In 1953 the
fund made a 62% million dollar
loan to India and it has floated
other smaller loans for other Co-
lombo plan countries.

Gov. G. Mennen Williams intro-
duced Stevenson as "The next
president of the United States."

cratic rally were Senatorial as-
pirant Pat MacNamara, and

dates from Wayne County.
Stevenson's speech was carried

vision.
To Visit 'U'
Elmer Rice, who has a reputa-
tion as a playwright and novelist,
as well as a stage director, is ex-
pected to be at the University to

semester, according to Prof. War-
ner G. Rice, chairman of the Eng-
lish department.
Elmer Rice is currently discuss-
ing what play can be most suit-
ably cast with members of the
play production group in the
speech department, Prof. Rice
said.

COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
California University Regents
Rule ROTC CourseRequired

By SAM REICH
In the midst of the controversy
introduced by the ROTC loyalty
oath, the Board of Regents of
the University of California ruled
last week that all able-bodied male
students must take the basic
ROTC course.
Unless this edict is reversed in
court, Ralph Ornelas, the fresh-
man who refused to sign the
ROTC loyalty oath, must either
leave school or take the pledge.
At the University of Illinois, 10
of the 11 barber shops on campus
were reported to be giving good
service to Negro students in re-
sponse to a strong drive by the
student bodly.
A drama which has been un-
folding at Michigan State since
early last summer reached new
heights this week when the bro-
ther of an injured foreign stud-
ent reached his bedside after a
frantic 9,000 mile trip which was
culminated in 21/2 days. At his
brother's prodding, Sankar S.
Chari, a student from India who
lost his right leg as the result of
a laboratory explosion last June,

ended his self-imposed three-week
fast. "He just lost his will to
live", stated his brother, Krish-
ama.
The Ivy League recorded ano-
ther college "first". From Cor-
nell comes the report of the year's
first pantie-raid.
No doubt the military depart-
ment of LSU was shocked when
the form it mailed to "Mr. Maxie
Cavin" for the compulsory ROTC
course was returned with a de-
clining message. However Maxie
need fear no action by the mili-
tary department. Maxie is a
coed.
Mar~tel To Speak
Frank Martell, president of the
Wayne County American Federa-
tion of Labor will speak on "A
guaranteed annual Wage at 7:30
p.m., Thursday, in Rm. 3S of the
Union.
Martell will be the principal
guest at the semi-annual smoker
of Sigma Rho Tau, national en-
gineering speaking society.
