SGC President Hank Berliner,
'56, called -the Administrative
Wing the "key to the Council's ul-
timate success."
"Its importance," he comment-
ed, "lies not only in permitting
SGC to assume a greater area of
responsibility, but also in providing
a direct link between SGC and the
student body."
Describes Projects
Bill Adams, '57, chairman of the
Public Relations committee, one
of the groups Wing members will
work on, described several proj-
ects he hopes his group will start.
One idea is to establish a line
of communication with the cam-
pus, probably in the form of
monthly reports, either in a spe-
cial newsletter or in The Daily.
Coffee hours with elected and
appointed SGC members meeting

ams expects his group will under-
take. All-campus forums will also,
be under the jurisdiction of the
Public Relations Committee.
Coordinating Body
Human and International Wel-
fare Committee Chairman Bob
Leacock, '57, said yesterday he
plans to have his group serve as a
coordinating body for all organs
on campus working in the inter-
national area.
Working jointly with the Inter-
national Students Association, the
SGC group will sponsor an orien-
tation and integration program for
the 350 new foreign students ex-
pected this fall.
Educational and cultural prob-s
lems, such as faculty evaluations,
academic counseling, honor sys-,
tems, accelerated study programs
and student advisors, will be dealt
with by Leacock's committee also.F

some students seem to think.
"It is felt that this misconcep-
tion on the part of some students

Educational Principles
Bingley maintains that joint ju-
die works along "educational prin-

work your way through school,
whether you were fined by the city
court, or whether a fine would just
mean signing another check for
you. If the latter is your case, the
council could require you to work
for your fine, with the pay check
as evidence.
If you were under extreme hard-

fine, as has been done frequently
in the past. Then, finally, if you
are dissatisfied with the judic rul-
ing, you may appeal your case to

Robertson's Unexpected
Visit Aimed at Facts'

TAIPEI. Formosa (Ml)-- Walter
Robertson, assistant secretary of
state, made a surprise visit to Que-
moy yesterday.
This bolstered belief his visit is
to "get facts," not to urge further
Nationalist withdrawals.
Once back from the Nationalist
stronghold across Formosa Strait,
Robertson conferred again with
President Chiang Kai-shek.

man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,

Student Link
With Alumni
Need for a stronger link between
students and alumni organizations
was cited at yesterday's meeting
of the Development Council Stu-
dent Relations Committee.
Holding its second meeting, the
group concluded that awareness
of alumni responsibilities and priv-
ileges must be established at the
student level.
A brochure entitled "So You're
a Michigan Alumnus," under di-
rection of Ruth Rossner, '55, com-
mittee secretary, will be mailed
this spring to all graduating sen-
iors. Similar to a pamphlet dis-
tributed last year, the booklet has
been revised and expanded.

Final committee organization

da. Planned as a 13-member group,

ment Council Board of Directors,
presidents or representatives of
the five major housing groups and

S. Phillips, Jr. of the political

a meeting of the Young Republi-
Prof. George Kish of the geog-
raphy department joined Prof.
Phillips in a panel discussion of
the Quemoy-Matsu problem.
"'T'here is not much we can do
to stop Red China from taking
Quemoy and Matsu if they want,
short of World War III," said
Prof. Phillips. It is better to have
us lose face by graciously relin-
qjuishing these islands than to en-
ter another world war which could
result in annihilation."
Prof. Phillips added thdt relin-
quishment of Quemoy and Matsu
would not be the same as relin-
quishing Formosa, which he said
is held in high esteem by many
European countries.
"If we pull out of Formosa,"
commented Prof. Kish, "this move
will be favored by most Americans
but we will have backed down on
our promise to protect Formosa
in case of attack. We will thereby
lose the respect of other countries
who are in the same position."
Both instructors agreed that
Chiang Kai-shek's army isn't
growing more efficient as it gets
Prof. Phillips even declared that

if there is any fighting, it will be
done by United States soldiers.
Chiang Kai-shek, said Prof.
Phillips, has tried to raise the
morale of his army by promising
to bring them to their families.
The morale problem, agreed Prof.
Phillips and Prof. Kish is one of
the most important in Formosa.

College Men End Ban on Bermudas by Adopting Them

put out Saturday by Undersecre-
tary of State Herbert Hoover Jr.
with the approval of Pres. Dwight
D. Eisenhower.
That statement, issued in re-
sponse to Chou's bid for talks with
the United States to "relax ten-
sions" in the Far East, said: "Of
course the United States would in-
sist on free China participating as
an equal in any discussions con-
cerning the Formosa area."
Bad Reaction
The Saturday statement was re-
ported to have met a bad reaction
among some friendly nations and
in this country.
Sen. Walter F. George (D-Ga.)
said the absence of Nationalist
China from the conference table
should not prevent American
peace talks with the Communists.
The Nationalist regime has turned
thumbs down on the idea of meet-
ing with the Reds.
Senator George, who is chair-
man of the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee; said Chou had
offered to discuss other problems
in the Far East besides Formosa.
Saying that several of these, in-
cluding Viet Nam, are pressing,
George added: "I don't think we
ought to rebuff the proposals he
has made for a meeting,
If we were to turn them down
or impose unreasonable conditions,
that would have a bad effect on
our position in the Far East,
where we are not too popular as
it is."

German representatives standing
by for consultation-meet against
a backdrop of Soviet-Red Chinese
diplomatic moves which appear de-
signed to show the Communists
as peace-seekers, too.
Several European and Asian of-
ficials in this diplomatic cross-
roads suggested, however, these.
moves may signal the start of an
all-out Red drive towards their
goal of neutralizing the main areas
where East and West meet.
Cite Developments
They cited these developments
in Europe:
1. Russia's about-face regarding
an Austrian independence treaty.
The Soviets have stipulated Aus-
tria must stay out of the East-
West cold war and have tossed In
several economic concessions.
2. A flow of Russian soft words
to Yugoslavia, for years deep in
the Communist doghouse because
her leaders allegedly stepped from
the Moscow party line.
Russia Switches
3. A reported switch by Russia
over the idea of a Scandinavian
union between already-neutral
Sweden and Finland and allied
Norway and Denmark.
Soviet Deputy Foreign Minister
Andrei Gromyko was said to have
withdrawn some old Russian ob-
jections to the scheme during a
recent visit to Stockholm.
The Xremlin evidently hopes
that, in time, a belt of neutral
states will develop in Europe from
the Arctic to the Aegean that will
include the Scandinavian coun-
tries, all or part of Germany, Aus-
tria and Yugoslavia.

than do men-but a few males questioned admitted they'd be willing
