VOL. LXV, No. 117 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 1955
BONN, Germany (/fP) - West
Germany's Bundesrat approved
yesterday the Paris treaties to arm
500,000 Germans on the side of
The vote was 29-9. It completed
the parliamentary action required
Also accepted was an agreement
with France to Europeanize the
coal-rich Saar Valley. All the
treaties now go to President Theo-
dor Heuss for his signature. The
Bundestag approved them Feb. 27.
Fate Up to France
West German ratification leaves
the fate of the rearmament trea-
ties largely up to France. The par-
liaments of nine nations have now
given the treaties approval. The
six which have yet to complete
parliamentary action on the Paris
Streaties are Belgium, Denmark,
France, Luxembourg, the Nether-
lands and the United States.
The French Senate, where the
issue is in doubt, will start debat-
ing the treaties Wednesday, with
x a vote slated Friday.
A new challenge to the treaties
developed yesterday when the op-
position Socialists announced they
Sare filing a suit in the Constitu-
tional Court against the Saar pact.
The Socialists said they have re-
cruited sufficient parliamentary
support for the suit. They need
the signatures of at least one-
third, or 163, of the Bundestag
If accepted by the court, the
suit could jeopardize the entire
Paris treaty package. The. Saar
pact is tied to the rearmament
treaties, and the French have been
insistent on approval of the whole
bundle, or nothing.
Under the Paris treaties, West
Germany would receive national
sovereignty, the right to create a
defense force of a half-million
men designed for atomic war, and
join the North Atlantic Alliance
and a seven-nation West Euro-
pean military union.

harass the Eisenhower Adminis-
tration and to harass business."

Regent Bonisteel reported the
results of the meeting with the
State Board of Agriculture's com-
mittee. "We explained there was
no objection to the name universi-
ty," he said, "just to the name
Michigan State University, since
it would seriously interfere with
the name University of Michigan."
Later he asserted that "175,000
alumni have acquired something of
a vested right in the name Uni-
versity of Michigan, which is not
to be confused with the name
Michigan State University."
Regent Bonisteel cited the for-
mal University statement which
concluded "The Regents also feel
that the two boards should further
discuss the problem with a view
to finding a university name ap-
propriate and acceptable to Mich-
igan State and not in conflict with
the name of the University of
