Move Prevents
General Election
TOKYO (M'-The foreign office an-
nounced today that Prime Min-
ister Shigeru Yoshida and his cab-
met had resigned.
The resignation opened the way
for a new cabinet headed by Yo-
shida's old rival, Ichiro Hatoyama.
It spares the two conservative
parties, Yoshida's Liberal and Ha-
toyama's Democrats, the ordeal of
a general election which might see
an upsurge of socialist power.
Favors Red Ties
Hatoyama is pro-United State,
like Yoshida, but favors trade and
diplomatic ties with Russia and
Communist China.
The announcement of Yoshida's
resignation came only a few hours

SGC Questions
Question: Does SGC have p.ower to enforce its delega-
tions of projects to other student organizations?
Answer: SGC's power to grant and withdraw recognition
from student groups could provide some measure of enforcement
should any group fail to carry out projects it agreed to accept,
Assuming that SGC was granted a student tax, SGC would also
have a degree of financial control over student organizations

money could be granted an organization if it undertook a specific

Question: One of the major complaints about SL has been
that an elected member is not responsible to a specific con-
