distributed during registration week.
The first game is during this week and regular distribution meth-

Still Clouds

Opposes Rules
cloud of uncertainty settled over
the antipolio campaign Tuesday
as at least one big maker of Salk
vaccine balked at new production
rules laid down by the govern-
Homer C. Fritsch, executive
vice-president of Parke, Davis &
Co., Detroit, told reporters the re-
vised standards for manufacture
and testing of the vaccine were
not acceptable to him "as pres-
ently written," and that he be-
lieved the five other licensed man-
ufacturers felt the same way.
"That is why the meeting is
breaking up for Wednesday,"
Fritsch said.
Meet to Form Standards
The U.S. Public Health Service
had called the manufacturers' rep-
resentatives together to lay the
new standards before them as a
first step toward resumption of
the antipolio campaign on a na-
tional scale.
Without disclosing details of the
new standards, a government an-
nouncement said tey would be
"required" of all manufacturers
whose product was to be cleared
for the inoculation program.
Fritsch reported, however, they
had been presented to the manu-
facturers as "tentative." He said
there would be a further discus-
sion of the question with Public
Health authorities today.
No Insistence on Changes
Asked about the tentative quali-
ty of the standards, a Public
Health Service press officer com-
mented that "the degree to which
they can be put into practice is
not at the point of our saying
'Here are certain changes on
which we insist-do it or don't
do it.'"
The government also announced
yesterday it had set up a watch-
dog committee of scientists to re-
view production methods in all li-
censed pharmaceutical houses and
examine government testing pro-
Public Health Service said the
committee will "recommend ac-
tion on all lots of vaccine already
produced but not yet released and
all lots of the vaccine which will
be produced in the future."
Rumor in Cutter Case
As the watchdog group was be-
ing organized, Rep. Arthur G.
Klein (D-N.Y.), a member of the
House Commerce Committee, de-
manded an investigation of a ru-
mor that "a very prominent poli-
tician" in California had brought
pressure on Secretary of Welfare
Oveta Culp Hobby to license Cut-
ter Laboratories of Berkeley,
Calif., as a vaccine-maker."
Vice-President Richard M. Nix-)
on, whose name was mentioned in
the rumor, denied he had any
contact with Mrs. hobby's de-
partment or any vaccine maker in
connection with the Salk prepa-

Deborah Townsend, '56 said that
the field house was quite a dis-
tance from campus and those reg-
istering on Saturday would have
little time to get their tickets in
time for the game.

this method of distribution stu-
dents would not be able to sit with
their friends as has been a com-
mon practice in the past.

In Washington yesterday, the
Senate passed the Democratic bill
calling for a five-year, $18,000,-
000,000 highway bnilding program
after decisively rejecting Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's 10-
year road plan.
At the same time in Lansing, a
$35,000,000-a-year highway im-
provement program passed the
Hohse by a 60-46 vote and was
sent to Gov. G. Mennen Williams,
who is expected to sign it.
Passage of the national bill was
on a voice vote.
House To Get Bill
The measure now goes to the,
House where the Administration
has higher hopes of winning ap-
proval of its plan, which proposes
a controversial bond issue to help
finance construction.
The Senate refused to accept the
President's proposal by a 60-31
vote during the long day of debate
which preceded final passage of
the bill sponsored by Sen. Albert
Gore (D-Tenn.).
It also beat back 50-39 a move
on which Republicans had pinned
most of their hopes-an effort to
shelvetheGore bill by sending it
back to the Public Works Coin-
mittee while the House works on
the legislation.
Dems Vote Against
Not a single Democrat went
along with the motion to' recom-
mit. Voting against it were 46
Democrats and 4 Republicans.
Here are the essentials of the
Gore program:
The plan is to spend about $18,-
000,000,000 of federal-state money
in the next five years on interstate,
primary, secondary and urban
highways. The federal govern-
ment will put up more than two-
thirds of the cash. An increase in
the two - cents-a - gallon federal

gasoline tax, to three cents, is ex-
pected to be asked later.
Gas Tax Increase{
The Michigan bill calls for a
one-and-a-half-cent per gallon
gasoline tax increase, effective this
fall. Three-quarters of the money.
would go to the state for con-
struction of arterial highway sys-
tems; the rest would be given to
cities and counties.
A coalition of House "Young
Turks" and Democrats pushed the
bill through after knocking down
a series of crippling amendments.
All the proposed amendments
were defeated by fairly safe mar-
gins so that the bill will reach
the Governor in exactly the same-
form as it passed the Senate.
Besides the gas tax increase, the
bill calls for a 10 per cent hike in
truck license fees.

Under the plan, 40 per cent of
the state's share of the additional
money would be used on highways
through or around cities.
'Gov. Williams hailed passage of
the bill as "the start of a modern
highway program."
"At last it appears that the peo-
ple are going to get some four
lane divided highways that go
from one place to another for their
tax money," he Laid.
"The legislators of both parties
who supported the bill are to be
congratulated for statesmanlike
conduct. Nobody likes to see taxes
raised, but the tax increase embod-
ied in this bill was inevitable un-
der the present circumstances. It
was a case of accept the tax in-
creases or having no road pro-
gram," Williams said.

South Quad will house the exchange student from the Free Uni-
versity of Berlin next semester.
In a drawing yesterday, presidents of South, East and West
Quadrangles decided the housing arrangements for the student, Wer-
ner Koenig.
All three quads have given $125 scholarships for Koenig's room
and board for the semester.ยข
Under the sponsorship of Student Government Council, the ex-
change program with the Free University of Berlin is carried -on
each year with one student coming to the University and one student
sent to Germany. This year, David Learned, '58Med., was selected.
Interested in Student Government
Koenig, a graduate student in political science, is especially in-
terested in the student government at the University according to
Paul Vitz, '57, chairman of the committeee in charge of the exchange.
Vitz also added that it is hoped Koenig will be housed in a
fraternity during the second semester so that he can get a look at
different types of housing.
Koenig will get his share of University life as plans are being
made for him to attend concerts, lectures, SGC meetings and parti-
cipate in other activities on the campus.

C. Richards and Detroit's Mayor
Albert E. Cobo discussed the mile=-
age difference, criticizing the "dis-
advantageous" Willow Run.
Richards Suggests Meeting
Richards suggested that both
the airlines and Detroit authorities
meet together to plan a possible
move to Wayne Major; however,
Wilson declined the proposal.
Wilson, a former Grand Rapids
lawyer and graduate of the Ui-
versity law school, pointed out that
from $20,000,000 to $30,000,100
would .be necessary to adapt the
Wayne airport for commercial use.
Such expense, he said, would not
justify the possible benefits that
the airlines might receive.
Instead, consideration has been
given to the ztudy of the proposed
construction of a new airport
northeast of Detroit.
Charges 'Barnlike' Terminal
Following Commissioner Rich-
ards's charges against the "barn-
like Willow Run Terminal," Wilson
pointed out that a survey listing
the cost of proposed improvements
for Willow Run should be com-
pleted early next month.
Estimates to improve present
facilities range between $300,000
and $500,000.
Although airline officials have
definitely maintained that the air-
airlines will remain at Willow
Run, Leroy C. Smith, county high-
way engineer, commented that
they will move eventually.
