Asians Claim U.S.
Values Decaying
By DONNA HANSON
Industrialization in the United States is undermining its social
values, Asian participants in the first two of five Asian-American
Seminars being held here claimed yesterday.
Asia, on the other hand, wants to have an advanced society
which encompasses industrialization but also retains its basic values,
R Prof. V.K.R.V. Rao, Director oYf the School of Economics at the Uni-
versity of Delhi, said.
"Asia looks with respect on sacrifice of material things and is

Prof. W. Earl Britton of the engineering English department,

suitable if used for large lectures, but it's difficult to see it replacing
small classes and personal student-teacher relationships."
Repeatedly stressed was the need for personal contact between

White Calls
Cobo Threat
To Williams
By DICK TAUBj
"Mayor Albert E. Cobo's recent
decision to run for Governor is
clear evidence that the Republican
party is marshalling all its forces
to beat Governor Williams this
fall," John P. White of the political
science department said yesterday.
However, White explianed that
there would still be a difficult race
ahead for the Detroiter. For one
thing, Williams is in a strong posi-
tion. He is still very popular.
"During last election he polled
48 per cent of the out-state vote.
By choosing a Wayne County man,
the Republicans may lose even
more of this vote to Williams," he
added.
Leads Party
"Williams is in a better position
than many Democrats. He usually
runs about 4 per cent ahead of his
party. Republicans could carry
the state and Williams would still
be able to win as he did in 1952."
"Republicans will have. one dis-
tinct advantage," .White said. In
1952 there were two separate bal,
lots-one' for the President and
one for other officials. Now be-I
cause of a new law, there will only
be one ballot.
"This will give the Republicans
a chance for some coattail hiding."
White said that not many Re-
publican leaders think the nomi-
nation would go to Donald Leon-
ard. "He was beaten badly last
time and most don't seem to think
he would make a good candidate,"
he said.

AIR-POWER DEBATE:
ilson Says Reds Not
Far Outstripping U.S.
WASHINGTON (RP)-Secretary of Defense Charles E. Wilson
struck out yesterday at critics he called "fear mongers," and denied
that Russia is "far outstripping the United States in terms of air
power."
Wilson told a Senate Appropriations subcommittee that the
Pentagon has ordered an increase in production schedules for the B52
intercontinental jet bomber. He said, too, that total defense spending
in the next fiscal year will anmount to "nearly 100 million dollars per
day." The total: About 36 billion dollars.
Wilson stressed that there has been "no change in the interna-
tional situation which would require us to increase our forces over-all
or make it possible for us at this
time to reduce our forces."
In the case of the B52, howeverr
he said an increase in production
goals has been ordered.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
fifth in a series of six articles on
segregation in the United States as

By MARY ANN THOMAS
Since many Southern states are
objecting violently to desegrega-.
tion ordered by the Supreme Court
in its May, 1954 and April, 1956
rulings, the dispute is very likely
to become a hot issue in this No-
vember's national elections.
Commenting on the problem,
John P. White, an instructor in
the political science department,
observed that "the main impact
of this issue is that it has created
a crisis for the Democratic Party
because both of the most hostile

Socialistic Pattern
"Nehru, however, advocates a
socialistic pattern of society in his
Five Year Plan, whereby the large
industrial developments will be in
the hands of the government while
the small industries will be operat-
ed by the people."
The plan provides that Indian
industries, which require large
capital, will be built by the govern-
ment and later turned over to pri-
vate enterprises.
Based on values of freedom of
democracy, Prof. Rao asserted, this
plan has no rigid pattern, and
should reduce financial centrali-
zation, leading to a rise in econom-
ic status.
At tomorrow's session the panel
will begin discussing the social
aspects of industrialization pro-
ducing changes in human values.

till consider the value of personal
contact," Prof. Warren Ketcham
of the School of Education main-
tained.
"Education isn't just storing up
knowledge," he said, "for we have
to retain personal contact, which
is the greatest support a student
gets. This is lost with television."
Pointing out television's advan-
tages, Prof. Garnet Garrison of the
speech department called televi--
sion" a wonderful asset to spe-
cialized instruction in dentistry,
medicine and the physical scien-
ces,"
Growing Enrollment
Mentioning the University's
growing size, he described the
medium as "a way of meeting de-
mands of increased enrollment.
He added that "it is not a substi-
tute for good instructors, but it
would make better use of the ones
we have. Other would then carry
on the discussion sessions."
He also stressed the advantages
of using kinescopes to record lec-
tures of vising speakers and out-
standing personalities.
Prof. Donald Pearce of the Eng-
lish department, who has partici-
pated in a number of presenta-
tions, remarked, "I see no reason
why television can't be assimilated
into the Universtiy's teaching if
it is done in a way that wouldn't
replace personal sessions.
Supplementary Method
He predicted that the medium
would be used as a supplementary
teaching method, "only effective
in large scale use, replacing lec-
tures normally given to large nuni-
bers.
He called the medium "no good"
for recitations, warning that stu-
dents would be undereducated if
they could discuss only with a
machine."
Repeatedly mentioned was tele-
vision's ability to enable large
numbers of people to witness dem-
onstrations. Prof. Burton L. Baker
of the Medical school pointed to an
eye operation as an example,
In discussing the medium as a
teaching aid he added, "We have to
work with it for a while, for there
is much gained from personal con-
tact, especially in medical school,"
Take that out of teaching,'' he
said, "and we might as well give
the student a book and send him
home."

"As Republican standard bearer,

Bretton also expressed the belief
that Leonard would be defeated in,
the primary.
SGC To Meet
The Student Government Coun-
cil will hold its weekly meeting at
7:30 p.m. today in the Union.
Foremost on this week's agenda
is the approval of the final recom-
mendations for driving bans and
the enforcement of fees. '
Also on the agenda is the dis-
cussion of .the regulation of the
|proposed student traffic court and
! the appointment of new members
to certain SGC boards.

that Cobo's decision, "Will greatly pnteon "how ar ledhindt we are

"You are talking about the fear
mongers now," Wilson said. He
added that his statement to the
subcommittee was, in part at least
a reply to such charges.
Less Difficulty
The secretary then noted criti-
cism of the B52 program in current
hearings of a Senate Armed Serv-
ices subcommittee. -
Wilson said the Air Force has
had "less difficulty with the B52
in its early phases than with any
other airplane in recent years."
This was an apparent reference
to testimony last week by Gen.
Curtis LeMay, chief of the Strate-
gic Air Command, that 78 B52s
have been built but that only 46
have been accepted by the Air
Force. Gen. LeMay told the Armed
Services group that the otherswere
rejected because of a defect in a
small component part. To this

When he left the monument

Later the crowds, apparently led
by striking Algiers university stu-
dents, clashed with police on one
of the main streets in Algiers.

walk calfes sailed through the air.
At 'least one shot was fired.
Police cleared the area slowly
by hurling tear gas grenades. A
dozen arrests were made, but no
serious injuries were reported.
Union To Hold
Athletic Panel
Four panel members will repre-
sent four different points of view
at the Union-sponsored forum,
"What Place Intercollegiate. Ath-
letics in the Modern University?"
scheduled for 7:30 p.m. today in
the Union Ballroom.
One panel member, freshman
football coach Wally Weber, plans
to discuss "the real importance" of
athletics, the improvement of the
individual and the "athletics for
all" program.
Prof. Marcus L. Plant of the
Law School said yesterday he
would be concerned with the prop-
er proportion of athletics in the
Unversity and the means of faculty
control.
Another panelist; Lee Marks,
'56BAd, of The Daily, will note the
dangers inherent in the over-em-
phasis of intercollegiate athletics
in the University.
Prof. Marvin Felheim of the
English department will also par-
ticipate.
Following the eight-minute
speech by each of the panelists, a
formal discussion period will be
held with opportunities for ques-
tions from the audience.

brown shoes. The only article of
clothing missing from his room
was a light yellow windbreaker.
Matzen's wallet, - identification,
and glasses, were left on the desk
in his room. His bank account has
not been touched for more than
a month.
University officials were ex-
tremely' concerned because of his
health condition. Matzen had re-
entered the University in Febru-
ary after dropping out temporarily
because of mononucleosis, a glan-
dular disease whose symptoms in-
clude chronic fatigue.
He has been reading late at
night and sleeping during the day.
He recently remained in his room
for five days and was extremely
thin because of illness and inade-
quate eating.
Health Service consultants re-
vealed the possibility that Matzen
may have been the victim of a
unique type of amnesia.
Police felt that this was not
"just an ordinary case of a boy
missing classes for a few days."
"It seems funny," said Detec-
tive Lt. George Stauch, "that an
individual would take off under
circumstances like this without
money, clothes or identification."
He did not have a girl friend,
according to his friends. A mem-
ber of a math class in which
Matzen was having difficulty said
he was disappointed because he
was riot getting the high marks
he felt he should.
Police investigations - indicate
that he was probably very de-
pressed the past two weeks.
His parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Frank G. Matzen of Blue Island,
Illinois, have arrived at the Uni-
versity to help in the search, but
so far have been able to shed no
light on his possible whereabouts.
His sister Barbara, '59, said Mat-
zen had given her no indication he
was going anywhere.
City police began a full-scale
investigation yesterday, and ac-
cording to Detective Stauch will
begin a search of the Huron Riv-
er this morning.
Matzen is described as 20 years
old, about 6 ft., weighing 150
pounds (before illness) with brown
crew-cut hair and hazel eyes. He
