Sen. Mansfield

Dulles Defends Administration
Actions to Congressional Leaders



WASHINGTON (P)-Senator Mike Mansfield (D-Mont) challeng-
ed the Administration yesterday to produce "new and better ways
to meet the Soviet threat" than the foreign aid program presented
by President Dwight D. Eisenhower Monday.
Sen. Mansfield lashed out at this program as sadly lacking in
"positive, constructive suggestions" and "more of the same old medi-

Fifth Amendment Cases

Code Could
Cut Supply
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
in a series of five articles on the
proposed revision of the teacher's
certification code, up for hearings
before the State Board of Education.)
Observers claim the proposed
teacher's certification code, if
passed, will cause a worse shortage
of teachers than now exists.,
No other state certification code
requires 30 hours of professional
education. The highest to date is
24 hours in 6 states-the lowest is
12 in 4 states. Overall average in
the country is 18 hours, according
to statistics in the Manual on
Certification Requirements.
With this in mind, and consider-
ing that 1,900 teachers were drawn
from outlying states last year,
some are asking if Michigan will
not jeopardize its teacher supply
by upping education requirements.
Population Increasing
Michigan's populationis increas-
ing steadily. More and more teach-
ers will be needed, and the state
cannot afford to lose the influx
of out-of-state teachers, few of
whom would be able to meet the
proposed requirements.
Cut 14 Hours
From the Music school's side of
the controversy, Prof. Britton said
the most optimistic view he could
take of the proposed code is that
it might cut out only 14 hours of
applied music-actual instruction
in singing and performing-from
the existing 58 hours.
Speaking out against the "gen-
eral education" requirements in
the new code, Prof. Britton said
it would "turn the high school into
a grade school, and the college
into a high school."
"An elementary teacher is sup-
posed to know about a variety of
subjects: arithmetic, history, pen-
manship. But to project this kind

Professors View Upset
As 3low to Stevenson
Senator Estes Kefauver's (D-Tenn) surprising upset victory
over Adlai Stevenson in the Minnesota presidential primary has
clouded the Democratic political picture.

result of the vote has "been a blow" to Stevenson's chances for
nomination on the Democratic ticket.

Bayne Says
Law, Reli ion
Vital to Culture
The law is the most important
single factor, except religion it-
self, in shaping our culture Rev.
David C. Bayne, said last night
in a talk to the Michigan Crib Pre-
Law society.
As an example of this potent
influence of the law and the courts
Father Bayne pointed out that
nine men on the Supreme Court
"are turning the South upside
down right now" in regard to the
problem of segregation.
The Jesuit Priest and Dean of
the University of Detroit Law
School noted that, just as the law
has an influence on society, the
law school shapes the law.
You are moulded into the pat-
tern your professor wishes except
for the fact that decisions are left
up to you he said.
Today, the world at large is
cut down the middle with the
powers of evil on the one hand
versus jeudo-christian culture on
the other he said. "We must op-
pose the neat little isms, such as
pragmatism, of the other culture,"
he said.
hRev. Fr. Bayne cited the issue
of artificial insemination as one
such moral issue that will be in-
fluenced by the courts in the fut-
ure. It is a question on the thres-
hold and there is a big debate on
it in most states including Michi-
gan he said.
"As pre-legal-students you must
line up on one side or the other,"
he said. "I am trying to solicit von

the 1952 primaries but did not re-

"The vote was a set back for

improve his position to obtain the
nomination," was the opinion ex-
pressed by Prof. John P. White
of the Political Science Depart-
White observed that should
Stevenson continue to give a poor
showing in the primaries the Dem-
ocratic leaders mught start look-
ing beyond Kefauver for a candi-
date, possible to Sen. Stuart Sym-
ington of Missouri or Michigan's
Governor G. Mennen Williams.
Several reasons for the surpris-
ing results were advanced. Prof.
Eldersveld said the farm prob-
lems, with Kefauver promising 100
per cent of parity to Stevenson's
90 per cent, the more personal
campaign conducted by Kefauver
and the weak vote-getting middle
of the road position of Stevenson
were probably all factors in result.
He added, "The political mach-
ine of Sen. Humphrey just
couldn't deliever in this case."
Humphrey had ordered the mach-
ine into all-out action for Stev-
Three main answers to the ques-
tion "why did Kefauver win?"
were given by Prof. White. First-
"he .had considerable appeal for

tremely vigorous campaigning of

of the Minnesota primary system."

Of Bureaus
Sugges ted
A case for stnong legislative con-
trol of governmental bureaus was
given to the Political Science
Roundtable last night.
Prof. Charles S.Hyneman, of the
political science department at
Northwestern University, defend-
ed the views presented in his book
"Bureaucracy in a Democracy"
published six years ago.
He said, "Only congress (law-
making authority) can determine
what devices should be used to
enact such control. Congress must
be its own judge on the extent of
theuse of such devices."
Importance of building up in
administrative personnel a state
of mind in regard to what the
population wants was stressed by
Prof. Hyneman.
In laying out a yardstick to
test the legislative character qf
the bodies that would control
bureaucracy, Prof. Hyneman said
there must be an "awareness and
attentiveness" toward the inter-
ests of a wide segment of the pop-
However, I just don't know how
to set up a scale to determine the
range of this 'awareness and at-
tentiveness.' "
The probability of people ex-
isting with these qualities was
minimized by the Professor. "Men
get into assemblies and then de-
velop this awareness,"t he said,
"but, I can not say what kind of
an elective system would be re-
quired to find those with the po-

Other thousands of- Tunisians
cheered the moderate nationalist
leader, Habib Bourgiba, on his re-

pledge of autonomy in which some
ties between France and Tunisia
will be retained.
They gave Bourgiba ovations at
the airport and at the palace of the
Bey of Tunis, Sidi Mohammed al
Amin, to whom he reported.
Months of tension in ; French
North Africa-Tunisia, Algeria and
Morocco-were reflected in these
varied expressions of feeling.
The rioters were followers of
Salah ben Youssef, an exiled ex-
tremist who formerly was secre-
tary general of Bourgiba's Neo-
Destour Independence party. The
two men, once good friends, split
last; fall. Ben Youssef contended
Bourgiba's policy of negotiating
with the French for concessions
bit by bit was too slow.
Ben Youssef's group flew flags
of the rebels of neighboring Al-
geria in a march to the Neo-Des-
tour headquarters.

ed Tuesday, resembles.that which
the French government negotiated
