IHC Volunteers
Help for Flu Test
Joins IFC To Support Experiment;
Innoculations To Be Given Nov. 1-6
By DAVE BAAD
Inter-House Council members last night joined fraternity presi-
dents in support of volunteering assistance for the program to test
the effectiveness of flu vaccine.
IHC agreed by a large majority to volunteer services to University
health authorities. The motion passed the Fraternity Presidents As-
sembly last Tuesday.
Four thousand volunteers are needed for the controlled flu vac-
cine study to be organized by the Health Service in conjunction with
the School of Public Health.
At Health Service'
Innoculations will be administered from Nov. 1-6 in the north

Sec. Wilson
Nixon Declares
'Plus' for GOP
By The Associated Press
Repercussions from Secretary of
Defense Charles E. Wilson's dis-
sertation on dogs still echoed the
political front yesterday, with Vice-
President Richard M. Nixon pre-
dicting the whole thing would wind,
up as a "plus" item in the GOP
campaign.
Wilson himself has apologized
for his remarks at a Detroit news
conference Monday. He told a Re-
publican rally in Chicago Wednes-
day night that he "made a mis-
take -an unfortunate mistake -
bringing up those bird dogs at the
same time I was talking about peo-
Iple."
But the defense chief added that
his meaning was "distorted by our
left wing opponents."

Hurricane
Nears Coast
Of Carolina
HATTERAS, N.C. V - Hurri-
cane' Hazel, gaining speed and ex-
pected to move still faster, aimed
its death-dealing fury at the North
Carolina coast last night.
The season's most vicious tropi-
cal storm, with winds of 130-miles
an hour and moving north-north-
k west at 25 to 30 m.p.h., was ex-
pected to strike land near Wilming-
ton, N.C., about 5 a.m. The Mia-
mi Weather Bureau warned that
winds would increase along the
coast north of the storm through-
out the night.
Coastal dwellers from Wilming-
ton, N.C., northward worked fe-
verishly to prepare against the 130-
mile wind which caused uncounted
deatpi and destruction as it lum-
bered through the Caribbean.
Storm-wary New Englanders, al-
ready. battered by two death-deal-
ing hurricanes this year, hurried
preparations against Hazel just
in case the storm maintained its
course and hit there,
' All along the coast from Charles-
ton, S.C., to Block Island storm
warnings were hoisted and the
Weather Bureau cautioned against
dangerous winds and high tides.
The Weather Bureau said Hazel
was centered about 275 miles east
of Daytona Beach, Fla., and 'about
350 miles southeast of Wilmington
at 8 p.m.
A Navy reconnaissance plane
planned to keep tabs on the hurri-
cane by radar throughout the
night.
Sedition Laws
Before Court
WASHINGTON {(N - Whether
States may prosecute alleged sub-
versives under their own sedition
laws or must leave the field ex-
clusively to the federal govern-
ment will be decided by the Su-
preme Court.
The court, in its first business
session of the new term, agreed
yesterday to review a Pennsylva-
nia Supreme Court decision throw-
ing out the conviction of Stee
Nelson, w e s t d r n Pennsylvania
Communist party leader, en charg-
es of violating the state's sedition
act.
The Pennsylvania court ruled
that sedition against the United
States is a federal offense and can
be prosecuted only in federal
courts.
Last Chance
For Pictures
Today is the last day to sign up
for Senior pictures.
Students may sign up between
9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on the Diag and
between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. at the
Student Publications Bldg. Seniors
who have missed appointments and
have not arranged another time to
have their pictures taken have
been urged to make appointments
today since Monday is the last day
pictures will be taken.
Proofs should be returned imme-
diately from 12 noon to 5:30 p.m.
and 6:30 to 9 p.m. Monday through
Friday, to the Student Publica-
tions Bldg., according to Dick Har-

the remaining receive a non-af-
fective injection.
SStudens taking part in the ex-
periment will not be informed of
the contents of their innoculation.
Director of University HealthI
Service Dr. Warren Forsythe em-
phasized that students desiring flu
vaccine may receive it without be-
coming part of the experiment.
Expect December Epidemic
Four to six weeks are necessary
for the immunity derived from the
vaccine to accumulate. Since
Health officials expect a possible
flu epidemic in December the
shots will be administered in early
November so that immunity will
have time to develop in flu vac-
cine innoculated students.
Because of the careful supervi-
sion necessary and santiation
problems, mobile units will not be
used for the experiment.
Pan-Hellenic officials will ask
sorority presidents to volunteer
support of the tests at their meet-
ing Tuesday.
Controlled studies on old vac-
cines have taken place in the past
but the former vaccines offered far
from complete protection.
IHC to Buy Trophy
In other business last night IHC
voted to buy a homecoming tro-
phy to be awarded to the best
homecoming display among the
Quadrangle dormitories.
A new trophy will be awarded
each year to the winning house.
Members gave the cabinet pow-
er to appoint a committee to orig-
inate judging rules and to do the
actual judging for the contest.
Suzanne Buchman, '58SM, was
elected new IHC recording secre-
tary replacing Sandy Hoffman,,
'56. Miss Hoffman resigned because
of her new duties as Student Leg-
islature Publicity Chairman.
Harlod Lynde, '55, Allen Smith,
'55, and Peter Goldstein, '56, were
appointed to the Inter-House
Council judiciary.

den change catches 'em-but I've
always liked bird dogs better than
kennel dogs. You know, one who'll
get out and hunt for food rather'
than sit on his fanny and yell."
This brought a roar of protest'
from union leaders, Democrats and
even some members of Wilson's
own party.
Wilson returned last night from
his turbulent speech making trip
saying that he hoped his campaign-
ing was "wound up."
No More Speeches
He told reporters, who. met him
at the airport, that he knew of no
p 1 a n s for additional political
speeches. Obviously referring to
the controversy that grew out of
his press conference remarks
about dogs and the unemployed, he
said with a grin "I'm not in the
humor" to make any more politi-
cal speeches.
He was asked if he regarded the
bird dog incident as closed.
He said: "I would think so."
Wilson said he hoped the "Presi-
dent wasn't worried about it; he
has enough to worry about." In
answer to a question, he said he
had not talked with President
Dwight D. Eisenhower since the
controversy arose.
Nixon Claims Distortion
Nixon, in Houston, Tex., on a
speech-making tour ,told a news
conference yesterday that left wing
elements and "dumbocrats" dis-
torted Wilson's statement, withthe

Red China Recognition'
By MARY ANN THOMAS
Prof. Robert E. Ward of the political science department suggest-
ed that the United States withdraw support from Formosa and rec-
ognize Red China at a meeting of the Young Democrats yesterday.
Speaking on "The Formosan Situation and Its Effect on the
Far East," the specialist in Asian affairs explained that Formosa isn't
a valuable link in the Asian defense chain and it isn't valuable to Red

Never Too
Old
IOLA, Kan. (')-An Iola man
who will be 100 years old next
May was granted a divorce yes-
terday and was told he must,
not get married again within
the next six months.
Thomas K. Kimzey asked for
the decree and told Judge Spen-
cer Gard he wanted to get the
divorce before he is 100 years
old.
Kimzey and his wife, Mrs.
Clara Kimzey, 70, were married
in Pickneyville, Ill., in 1945.
They lived together at Iola un-
til 1952 when, Kimzey said, she
left him.

Davis Says
Issue Not
Yet Closed
Policy of AAUP
Cited in Case
By MURRY FRYMER
Secretary of the University Re-
gents Herbert G. Watkins said
yesterday that the Regents had
decided against giving severance
pay to former mathematics In-
structor H. Chandler Davis at its
meeting of Aug. 26.
He said the matter was a closed
issue.
Davis, when hearing of Wat-
kins' comment last 'niglit, said
that the matter was not a closed
issue.
"It is unheard of," said Davis,
"for a University, especially one
such as the University of Michi-
gan, to refuse severance pay. I
consider Prof. Nickerson and I en-
titled to severance pay as provided.
by the AAUP statement of policy."
AAUP Statement
According to this statement, en-
dorsed by the American Associa-
tion of University Professors in
1941, "teachers on continuous ap-
pointment whop are dismissed for
reasons not involving moral tur-
pitude.should receive their salaries
for at least a year from the date
of notification of dismissal wheth-
er or not they are continued in
their duties at the institution."
Watkins said that Davis was no-
tified of the Regents decision on
the severance pay issue in a Sept.
28 letter written by the Secretary4.
Davis said that the crucial word
in that letter is "indicated." Ac-
cording to the letter, he said, the
Regents had only "indicated" that
there would be no compensation.
Director of University Relations,
Arthur L. Brandon, commented
yesterday that the problem for the
University concerning severance
pay was "where to get the mon-
ey.
The University has no set policy
on the .question of compensation,
he added.
Jelin Clarifies Question
Meanwhile Steve Jelin, '55, Stu-
dent Legislature President, yester-
day attempted to clear up the ques-
tion of Davis' failure .to appear at
Wednesday night's SL meeting.
Jelin said that previous to the
meeting he and Davis had decided
that it would be "difficult and un-
necessary" for Davis to appear.
The former mathematics instruc-
tor had been expected at the meet-
ing to clarify certain points on the
severance pay motion which SL,
-was considering.
Earlier Wednesday, according to
Jelin, Dean of Men Walter'B. Rea
had told the SL President that his
office and other administrative of-
fices had been receiving many calls
from administration and faculty
members questioning the SL right
to hear Davis at an open meet-
ing, and the SL right to consider
severance pay for a faculty mem-.
ber at all.
"Unjustified. Projection"
Last night Dean Rea said, "I
thought it was an unjustified pro-
jection of SL's interest into the
academic area." He added that he,
thought the problem was one un-
related to students.
However both Dean Rea and
Jelin said that the questioi of
whether Davis would be invited
to speak was not resolved at their
discussion. Jelin said it was as a
result of the agreement between
IDavis and himself that Davis' at-

tendance at the meeting was un-
necessary to consider the motion.
Instead, whatever facts that
were thought' necessary for de-
bate were relayed by Davis to SL
treasurer Larry Harris, '56.
The motion proposing compen-
sation for Davis was sent back to
committee for further study Wed-
nesday by an SL vote of 26-3.

Just Tired

MEXICO CITY (P)-About
500 students went on the ram-

Some of the students said
they weren't celebrating any-
thing or protesting anything--

China for offensive purposes.
"The Communists can strike just
as effectively from the mainland,"
he commented.
Troops Ineffective
Although Formosa was sold to
Americans as a "bastion of
strength," Prof. Ward warned that
Chiang's former real-guard forces
totaling 600,000 are too old for
effective servict, ana no potential
for added manpower is available.
Prof. Ward urged that Formosa
be used as a bargaining point
with the Chinese Communists to
secure some stability in the Far
East. He further commented that
the issues of recognizing Red Chi-
na or of ,its admittance to the UN
could be bargaining points for set-
tlement, of the Indo-China con-
flict.
Reds Prefer Hot Issue
Refering to the Quemoy clash,
Prof. Ward asserted, "It is to the
advantage of the Communists to
keep the Formosa issue hot to act
as a possible wedge between Brit-
ish-American relations. "The Brit-
ish are very touchy about the For-
mosan problem," he added.
Continuing, he expressed doubt
whether Chinese Reds will ser-
iously carry through an attack
on Formosa "if they can do so well
politically without it."

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (M),-The 'Soviet Union was reported
yesterday to be ready to back a Western resolution to back a West-

Refuses Case
WASHINGTON (M)-The Su-

The decision was given by the

referred to the doctrine of sep-
aration of church and state, in
both the federal and state con-
stitutions.
In a test case, the Gideons of-
fered Bibles to school children in
Rutherford, N.J., and the school
board approved the distribution to
pupils whose parents signed re-

Tudor obtained an injunction
against the distribution and the
