re vote was taken, a new motion:
plan at its meeting September 21,
it was with the following qualifi-
cations: permission for SGC to
write a constitution; increase of the
SGC membership, and financial
control by SGC over a limited num-
ber of student organizations.
Jelin said that these provisions
had not been accepted in the pres-
ent SGC plan, so that SL had ac-
tually no official statement on rec-
ord concerning its favorableness or
unfavorableness toward SGC.
Need More Candidates
Ruth Rossner, '55, presented the
motion authorizing the $10 cam-
paign expense aid, stressing that
candidates m a y request a n y
amount up to that sum.
At present there are 22 candi-
dates for 25 SL posts. Petitioning
will remain open until Monday.
Jelin Won't
Run Again
Steve Jelin, '55, president of the
Student Legislature, announced
yesterday that he will not run for
reelection to SL in December, be-
cause of "personal health reasons."
The student government head is
reportedly suffering from a stom-
ach ailment.
Jelin said yesterday, "I find it
impossible to submit myself and
my parents to the effect upon me
of another term of office.
"I would give anything to be
able to work out in my own mind
some solution that would enable
me to continue the work that has
meant so much to me. But given
the totality of my responsibility,
I unhappily must withdraw. I wish
it were otherwise."
Jelin, whose term expires in De-
cember, has previously submitted
a petition for candidacy in this
election.

Bohlen Due
For Russian iViC air
Policy Talks
U.S. Sends NewSt rts
Protest to Soviets
WASHINGTON (P)--Ambassa-
dor Charles E. Bohlen, President
Eisenhower's envoy to Moscow, is
due back here for top level con-
sultation on Soviet policy next
week.
He is coming home in the midst
of United States efforts to find out
whether the Kremlin, which has ,a
been talking up peaceful coexist-
ence, is willing to call a halt to
the shooting down of American
aircraft.
New Protest
Bohlen's return was announced
by the State Department yester-
day. The announcement came
shortly after the department dis- *
closed the text of a new protest
note demanding the Soviet gov- 3
ernment take action to prevent a
recurrence of Soviet fighter at-
tacks such as that which downed
a RB29 photomaking plane Nov. '7
off Japan.
If Russia does not take "appro-
priate action," the note said, the
United States will provide its air-
craft in the future with "defen-
sive protection." That looked like
a warning that fighter escorts
would accompany all planes flying
in the vicinity of Soviet controlled
areas.

For the most part birth-control

The Constitution provides voting

University student in sympathy
with the purpose of the organiza-
tion upon payment of a nominal $1
dues. Non-voting membership is
open to any student who registers
with the party executive commit-

elected each semester within two
weeks after each all-campus stu-
dent election.

American-Soviet problems through
diplomatic channels instead of
letting them become big issues.
The reference in Wednesday's note
to recent statements by "high So-
viet officials" appeared to be a
reminder of the Premier's words.

Visiting Students From Japan
'Tell of U.S.-Japanese Friction

The newsmen thought educa-
tion and the desire for better liv-
ing conditions would be important
factors in solving the problem.
Emmigration would probably pro-
vide the most lasting solution,
they said.
The visiting group included
Ken-ichiro Ichikawa, editor - in -
chief of the Hokkai Times; Tad-
ashi Nagano,.president of the Oita
Radio and Godo Press Co.; Yoshi-
taro Nishida, editor-in-chief of the
Hakodate Branch of the Hokkaido
Shimbun; and Naosada Takabat-
ake, editor-in-chief of the Kahoku
Shimpo, Sendai.
Accompanying the newsmen is
Joseph Yoshioka of the State De-
partment.
Talking about Japan's military
position and national feeling about
the new South-East Asia Treaty
Organization, the editors said that
while SEATO was considered a
good "first step," the military
weakness of tis present members
prevents it from being really ef-
fective.
One of the most hotly-debated
issues in Japan today is the re-
rearmament question, they said.
Newspapers are divided as to
whether it will do Japan any good
to rearm in the face of atomic war-
fare and domestic economic diffi-
culties.

Senators
To Consider
Delay Today
WASHINGTON (M - An elbow
bruise reportedly inflicted by a
vigorous admirer sent Sen. Joseph
R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) to the hos-
pital yesterday and there was talk
of calling "time out" in the Sen-
ate's censure fight.
Sen. Francis Case (R-SD), a
member of the Watkins committee
which recommended censure of
Sen. McCarthy, said "some con-
sideration" undoubtedly will be
given today to recessing the debate
unless Sen. McCarthy is able to
attend.
'Serious Questions'
Sen. Case told a reporter Sen.
McCarthy's absence "raises rather
serious questions both of the Sen-
ate's courtesy and its attitude to-
Iward a fellow senator,"
He noted Sen. McCarthy was
represented on the floor yester-
day, however, by the presence bf
his lawyer, Edward Williams, and
by Sen. Herman Welker (R-Ida.)
whose often interrupted pro-Mc-
Carthy speech filled most of the
{day.,
Sen. Welker, floor manager for
the McCarthy side, challenged the
key findings of the Watkins com-
mittee as "absurd" and as "con-
trary to our whole theory of gov-
ernment."
At Naval Hospital
Sen. McCarthy was admitted to
the nearby <Bethesda, Md., Naval
Hospital, where a hospital spokes-
man said he may remain for sev-
eral days.
Mrs. Mary Driscoll, McCarthy's,
secretary, said he hurt his elbow
in Milwaukee last Saturday when
an enthusiastic supporter shook
hands so hard it rammed the elbow
against a glass table top. The hos-
pital officer said a contusion re-
sulted and the elbow has now
grown swollen and painful.
Vote Soon
Senate Republican Leader Wil-
liam Knowland of California in-
dicated, however he doesn't think
Sen. McCarthy's hospitalization
need delay action.
Sen. Knowland was reported to
believe preliminary voting might
begin tomorrow.
Fire Victims
Aid Review
Begins Today
Reviewing of requests for grants
to 14 student roomers of the Mon-
roe rooming house destroyed , by
fire here Oct. 28 will probably be-
gin today, Dean of Men Walter B.
Rea said yesterday.
At least two departments took up
private collections for graduate
students and their wives who lost
most of their belongings in the
blaze.
Because of this, The Daily Fire
Relief Fund administered by the
Office of Student Affairs will be
used primarily for the other stu-
dents, Dean Rea said.
He said that contributions to the
fund and special University grants
won't necessarily replace such
burned-out items as epensive suit-
cases with objects of equal price.

University grants will help fill
the gap between departmental con-
tributions, fund totals and total
losses of the students, he contin-
ued.
Although totals are not yet avail-
able, money collected by the Fund
will probably reach $700, including
$200 from the Student Legislature
Cinema Guild insurance fund.

Rearmament, the hydrogen bomb
program and United States mili-
tary bases are main sources of
disagreement between their coun-
try and the United States, visiting
Japanese students revealed in a
panel discussion of politics yes-
terday.
Members of the 16-man dele-
gation participating in the an-
nual Japan-American Conference
explained that the Japanese are
divided over the question of re-
armament. Yasuo Kamo said he
felt that this problem was such
that it would not be settled.
Talking about the recent hydro-
gen bomb tests in the Pacific
which injured Japanese fishermen,
the panel explained that this has
frightened their people very much.
"We do not hate the United
States because the fishermen were
killed," a student observed, "but
we sincerely hope that there will
be no such cases in the future."
However, the biggest problem
that Japan faces is the develop-
ment of political consciousness in
the people, they commented. "De-
mocracy is such a new idea that

the people have no concept of it,"
one explained.
Parties are chosen on a person-
ality basis rather than a program
basis, the panel continued. Jap-
anese have such great respect for
government officials that no mat-
ter what type a job he did for his
party, they would vote for him.
Although they fear Communism,
they said they believe Communists
have the right to form a political
party.
