Publicity on Big
By LINDA SIMON
A "spectacular" publicity cam-
paign was outlined by the Com-
mon Sense Party at its meeting
at the Union last night.
Bill Allen, Grad, publicity chair-
man, announced that a minimum
of 5,000 flyers would be distribut-
ed before the December student
government elections. The mater-
ial will inform the campus popu-
lation of general aims and pur-
poses of CSP.
The complete CSP platform for
the coming elections is printed in
full in the space below.
A speech campaign, including
every housing unit and student or-
ganization on campus, will be
sponsored by the party. Non-can-
didiates will mainly comprise the
speaking "army" unless there are
not enough men to "go around."
Of Heart Attack
Foreign Minister Was Preparing
Important UN Atom Debate Speech
NEW YORK (A--Andrei Y. Vishinsky died of a heart attack yes-
terday while preparing for one of the most important debates in his
career as the Soviet Union's leading orator.
His blistering voice and brilliant mind had lifted him from the
role of obscure bureaucrat to world fame in the East-West cold war.
Vishinsky was 70. He died at 9;30 a.m. EST, the Soviet delegation to
the United Nations announced, at its headquarters on Park avenue
here. He had collapsed earlier, after attending a dinner given Sun-
day night by the French delegation.
Appoint Commission for Funeral
A Moscow broadcast announced yesterday that the Soviet gov-
ernment and Communist Party had appointed a commission to take
charge of the funeral of Vishinsky, and said his body would be brought

CLEVELAND -- An old school

slain wife, Marilyn.
The osteopath is on trial for her
murder July 4.
On the second occasion, said Dr.
Lester Hoversten, he warned Dr.
Sheppard that his wife was a tol-!

actually be jumping from the fry-
ing pan into the fire."3
During less than half a day on
the witness stand, Dr. Hoversten

2. When he saw Dr. Sheppard,
a day after the murder, the de-
fendant wept and told him, "Why
couldn't they have killed me in-,
stead of Marilyn, because Chip-
his son-would need Marilyn more
than he would need me."
