To Consider
S'U' Proposal
Would Give City
$60,000 More
A University offer to pay 18 per
cent of the annual operating costs
of the Ann Arbor Fire Department
was referred to a special working
committee by the Council last
The offer, which University of-
ficials thought would receive im-
mediate approval, would result in
$60;000 in additional revenue for
the city during the fiscal year be-
ginning July 1.
John S. Dobson, former council-
man and chairman of the coun-
cil's special committee, explained
that "approval of the agreement
would result in the University con-
tributing money for the first time
to costs of operating the Fire De-
'U' Loaned Truck
University help until now had
consisted of loaning a high pres-
sure fog truck and an aerial ladder
truck. The University's announce-
ment of the offer yesterday in-
cluded a proyision that ownership
of these would be transferred to
the city of the proposed agreement
met approval.
The offer is part of a proposed
agreement between the City
Council's special revenue commit-
tee and a committee of the Uni-
versity Regents.
Bicycle Action
The Council also took further
action on the bicycle parking and
riding problem.
An amendment passed last night
to the bicycle ordinance states
the City Council shall from
time to time designate certain
areas in the city in which it shall
be unlawful to ride or park bicycles
on -the sidewalks, streets, or the
area between the two.".
The police department shall post
warning signs in the designated

Union will sponsor a panel dis-
cussion, "What Place Intercollegi-
ate Athletics in the Modern Uni-
versity?" at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow

"The need for this sort of thing
has been shown by the Inter-
House Council's faculty sympo-
siums and the literary college's
conferences," Rattner said.
"But the Union forum," he con-
tinued, "is much more interested

Lead Taken
By Tydings

Ike, Estes Claim
National Votes
BALTIMORE (P) - Millard E.
Tydings claimed victory last night
in his comeback bid for Mary-
land's Democratic senatorial nomi-
Tydings, a senator for 24 years
before his 1950 defeat, hooked up
with George P. Mahoney in a tor-
rid race7which found them dead-
locked 76-76 in the state's unique
nominating unit vote.
Contractor Losing
But he held a slight edge in
popular votes-the deciding factor
in the event of a init vote tie-
and insisted the margin could not
be erased by figures from the few
still-unreported polling places.
Returns from 1,235 of 1,277 poll-
ing places showed 137,207 votes
for Tydings to 128,116 for Maho-
ney, Baltimore paving contractor
making his fourth bid for state-
wide office.
"I have 76 sure votes," said
Tydings. "With the popular vote,
that ensures my nomination."
Polling Favorable
Mahoney headquarters acknowl-
edged the unit vote tie but a
spokesman said the candidate
would withhold any "premature
statement" until the final tally
was in.
Most of the unreported polling
places were in Baltimore County,
considered a Mahoney stronghold.
At one stage in the tabulations,
with 740 polling places in, Tydings
held an 80-66 margin in unit votes.
Others Trailed
The other three candidates -
Andrew J. Easter, George W. Wil-
liams and Thomas L. Christian -
trailed hopelessly.
The fierce . Tydings - Mahoney
battle overshadowed interest in the
presidential preference primaries,
where President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and Senator Estes Kefauver
(D-Tenn.) had the state's nomi-
nating votes tucked away.
Since neither write-in voting nor
crossing of party lines is legal in
Maryland primaries, the presiden-
tial preferenceresults were dis-
carded as indicators of relative

Plan Changes
In Orientation
Next fall, for the first time at
the University, freshman and
t r a n s f e r students' orientation
groups will be made up of both
men and women.
Moreover, according to Robert
L. Garfield, director of orienta-
tion, next fall will see one of the
largest entering classes, with ap-
proximately 3100 new freshmen
and approximately 1200 transfer
Each of the orientation groups
next semester will have both a man
and a woman leader.
Although the women have al-
ready been interviewed for the
positions, about 300 men are still
needed for group leader positions,
Garfield said.
Applications for orientation lead-
ers must be filed out this week,
between 3 and 5 p.m., in' the Stu-
dent Offices of the Union.



Johnson Unlikely
on nActive Candidate
WASHINGTON (P)-Senate associates said yesterday they doubt
Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (D-Tex.) will become an active candidate
for the Democratic presidential nomination despite prospects of strong
Southern support for him in early balloting.
Sen. Johnson's preliminary victory over Texas Governor Allan
Shivers for control of the 56-vote Texas delegation to the party's
national convention brought open predictionsThere that many Southern
delegates from other states will swing behind him.
