U Continues
Alumni Mail
Investigation
Governor Concerned
Over Partisan Use
By LEE MARKS
The University was asked yes-
terday by Gov. G. Mennen Wil-
liams' Office to continue investi-
gating the possibility that alumni
lists were used for the distribu-
tion of Republican party campaign
literature.
University Relations Director
Arthur L. Brandon claimed, "Uni-
versity alumni lists were not made
available by the University to any
political party."
Brandon conceded that one or
more local alumni clubs might
> have supplied their lists for po-
litical use, noting, "it is a rela-
tively easy matter for somebody to
secure a partial list."
Farrell Receives Literature
The issue came to light about
two weeks ago when Lawrence L.
Farrell, executive secretary to the
Governor, said he was one of a
number of alumni who received
the campaign literature.
Bearing what appeared to be the
official University -seal, the liter-
ature urged alumni to vote for
Republican candidates for Re-
gents in the April 4 elections.
SBoth Republican candidates
were defeated.
Seal Not Official
Brandon said the seal was not
P off icial but was an "unofficial
printer's duplicate." Official Uni-
versity seal, according to Brandon,
can be released only by Secretary
to the .Regents Herbert Watkins
and is definitely identifiable.
Farrell said the situation was
regarded by Gov. Williams as a
"very serious matter," because it
involved the University in parti-
san politics in the minds of many
people.
In response to original queries
from the Governor's Office, Presi-
dent of the University Harlan H.
Hatcher sent the Governor a copy
of a report., prepared by Brandon.
Yesterday's request, according
to Farrell, was just a letter thank-
ing the President and asking him
to continue the investigation and
send the Governor a final report.
"We've checked a significant
number of alumni and it is ob-
vious not all of them received cir-
culars," Brandon declared.
Brandon said from the way the
names appeared he was "con-
vinced" some alumni names and
addresses had been used, but in-
vestigations showed these ad-
dresses did not come from the
University Alumni Association or
catalog office to any political
Complaints Received
Farrell said his office had re-
ceived a number of complaints
and he was sure President Hatch-
er had also.
"The problem presented leads
us to insist that there be stronger
security to the lists and that the
University's regulations be strictly
enforced. If the alumni lists were
misused, it must not happen
again.," Brandon told the Gover-
nor in his original report.
The University is interested in
finding out all it can about this
matter, Brandon commented.

Crews Says
U.S. Needs
Cooperation
Speaking before an Inter-Coop-
erative Council membership ban-
quet, Cecil R. Crews, an educa-
tional director of the Michigan
Union Credit League discussed the
trend toward more cooperation in
the United States.
Crews, who recently returned
from Burma where he participated
in the State Department's Point
Four Program, spoke on "New
Frontiers To Adventure." He
stressed "the burden is on Ameri-
cans chiefly to make freedom and
abundance available for all.
"How we use this freedom and
distribute this abundance will de-
termine how we live in the future
and how the rest of the world
lives with us or in opposition to
us."
Crews continued that it is in our
power to destroy in abundance us-
ing the atom bomb, or create in
abundance using President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's idea of a peace
ship.
Citing the proposed guaranteed
annual wage plan, Crews pointed
out cooperation between employ-
ers and employees already within
our own system.
Thecooperative movement is
also being accepted world-wide as

of discussion group meetings,
scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today in
Mason Hall, will deal with the stu-
dent's role in disciplinary matters
and planning new dorms, residence
hall social programs, and service
and employment opportunities in
dormitories.
Internal Problems To Be Discussed
Discussion groups will also be
meeting at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. to-
morrow in the League. The rela-
tionship of dormitory residents to
other groups on campus and their
own internal problems occupy most
of the delegates' time.
A talk by assistant director of
the Phoenix Project Roger L.
Leatherman on "Peacetime Atomic
Energy, Implications and Appli-
cations" will follow tomorrow
night's banquet.
The weekend discussions will be
summed up in the concluding ses-
sion at 9:30 a.m. Sunday in South
Quadrangle's Club 600.
Planned by Committee
Under the joint sponsorship of
Assembly Association and Inter-
House Council,' a central confer-
ence committee set up the week-
end schedule. Sylvia Levi, '56, and
Tom Bleha, '56, were the com-,
mittee's co-chairmen.
Visiting delegations will be hous-
ed in dormitories by moving extra
cots into the rooms of University
students. Delegates will have most
of their meals together in South
Quad dining rooms.
In addition to Big Ten repre-
sentatives the conference will be
attended by guest delegates from
Wayne University, Central Michi-
gan College and Michigan State
Normal College.
Petitions Available
Petitions for positions on the
Administrative Wing Committee
of SGC are still available,
These petitions may be obtained

and the Bureau df Appointments.
Reviewed by President Harlan H.
Hatcher, the conference was call-
ed a "profitable experience."J
The driving ban discussion groupj
believed that the committee study-
ing the driving problem should'
find a definite reason for justify-
ing the ban.
As its objective, the committee
should try to find a solution which'
would be equitable to the students,1
so that enforcement could be car-
ried on within the student groups
themselves.
The group brought up the ques-
tion of whether or not the driving
ban helps to keep the University
community together, because ten- ;
sion resulting between the stu-
dents and the administration .
makes its enforcement difficult.
Orientation Discussed
The group 'which discussed
freshmen orientation, believed
that a balance must be struck be-
itween the necessary procedures
and the social activities of the or-
ientation program. It mentionedj
the possibility of summer counsel-
ing to relieve the pressure during
orientation week.
Bob Blossey, '56BAd, leader of
the group, said that "the Confer-
ence as a whole makes us more
aware of the various phases of the
.problems. But it is continual work
throughout the year that will give
us the solutions to these prob-
lems."
Foreign Student Difficulties
Main difficulties which the for-
eign students discussion group,
found were poor housing, language
problems and inadequate orienta-
tion and registration programs. It
suggested that existing campus or-
ganizations could greatly help the
integration program.
The League has already offered
to help orient the 30 or 40 foreign
women students who will come to
campus next year. The purpose of
its program will be tp establish a
basis for friendship by having, for
instance, foreign students visit
private homes.
Bureau of Appointments
The Bureau of Appointments
discussion group outlined its prob-
lems as: (1) organization of the
Bureau of Appointments; (2) the
faculty's role in helping students

Hlistoric Pact
Ceremonies To Take
Place Next Month
THE HAGUE. Netherlands (N)-
West German rearmament received
its final parliamentary blessing
yesterday.
The Dutch Senate cast a hls-
oric 32-2 vote for the Paris
treaties. It was the last such en-
dorsement needed to bring West
Germany into the Western Alli-
ance against communism.
The Dutch lower house approved
the pacts 71-6 March 30. So now,
after nearly five years of eotion-'
at and political struggle, the par-
liaments of all 15 nations affected
have voted for West Germany's
sovereignty and the right to re-
cruit armed forces that will even-
tually total a half million soldiers
sailors and airmen.
Ceremoniesrmarking West Ger-
many's change from a former en-
emy to a full Western power will
take place early next month-10
years after the unconditional sur-
render of Hitler's Reich.
Signed Treaties Depositd
The signed treaties will be de-
posited in various capitals, for-
mal diplomatic notice that they
are in effect.
The Bonn Republic's enrollment
in a seven-nation Western Euro-
pean Union and in the North At-
lantic Treaty Organization is
planned at foreign ministers'
meetings opening in-Paris May '.
The nations in the alliance are
West Germany and the 14 present
members of NATO: Britain,
France, Italy, the Netherlands,
Belgium, Luxembourg, Turkey,
Iceland, Norway, Denmark, Portu-
gal, Greece,rCanada and the Unit
ed States.
All signed one or more of the
four Paris agreements. Spelled out
in more than 30,000 words, this is
what they will do:
Sovereignty Restored
*Restore sovereignty to West
Germany after 10 years of Allied
occupation.
Permit Allied troops to stay on
there for the defense' of Europe.
Create the WEU as the frame-
work for West German rearma-
ment. WEU will consist. of the
Brussels Pact nations - Britain,
France, Belgium, the Netherlands
and Luxembourg-plus Italy and
West Germany.
Admit West Germany into
NATO as the 15th member.

It isn't seasonal, but Bennie
