Time-Stu dents Struggle

with Sun, Bookc

By RICHARD TAUB
A grim pall has settled over the University.
Finals are approaching. The semester has shot by so fast, too
fast, that most haven't had time to do- all the studying they planned.
But Ann Arbor's seldom-seen sun is causing a great deal of
trouble. It's so much easier to soak in the warm rays with eyes
closed than to struggle with print which has suddenly become so
small.
Study halls all over campus are filling up. South Quad suddenly
demands ID's and meal tickets for admittance, and many fraternity
men have to go elsewhere.
Lawns and sun-porches abound with blankets, pillows, books, and
people wishing they were somewhere else. But, "I have to kill this
final."
All plan special study systems which are guaranteed to work.
One freshman works with his feet higher than his head because, "The
blood activates my brain and I'm much more alert."
Many have sadly roresworn study dates.
All are driven on by one thought, however, one idea that makes
the whole thing bearable: "In a short time school will be over, no
more work for two months. And then I can finally go home."

Considering
Center Here
Associated With 'U',
Would Be Located
On North Campus
University's North Campus is
mder serious consideration as the
ite for a $10,000,000 medicl-
harmaceutical research center.
The center,, planned by Parke,
Davis and. Oompany, would be as-
ociated with University research
facilities and would be located on
56 acres of land in the North
Campus area to be sold to the
irm by the University.
If Ann Arbor is chosen over
ompetinq Detroit as the site for
he huge project, the develop-
nent would be part of University
>lans to set aside an area adja-
lent to North Campus facilities
or private research institutions in
wsoiation with University activi-
ies.

Voting

ead Seesa ws
Stevenson, Kefauver Almost Tied;
Adlai Holds Slight Edge Over Estes
MIAMI, Fla. (P)-Florida voters tossed a hairline lead back and
forth yesterday in a drama packed, Democratic presidential primary
between Senator Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn) and Adlai E. Stevenson.
Each time the margin shifted, so did the claims on the bulk of
the state's 28 votes at the Democratic National Convention in August.
Stevenson, Kefauver Shift
Stevenson was on top by 154 votes, theTennessee senator by
only 28, then Stevenson again by a couple of. hundred.
And' so it went, on past the two-thirds point in the counting of
returns.
What cheered Stevenson rooters was the fact that the late tallies
would be coming in mainly from -

persons.
Wilbur K. Pierpont, University
vice-president, said Parke, Davis
officials approached the Univer-
sity to ask whether the University
would encourage their research,
center here.
Pierpont pointed out that this
suggestion fitted into plans for
development of the area and went
en to name, pharmacy, medicine
and engineering as "examples of
research fields in which the Uni-
versity research functions could be
centered.
Officials Want Land
University and City officials are
trying to get the land in which
Parke, Davis has expressed in-
terest, annexed to the city from
Ann Arbor township.
Pierpont explained that plans
for the annexation include over
300 acres east of the present North
Campus on US-12, much of which
the University intends to use for
expansion of its own facilities.
The University would pay for
the costs of installing and main-
taining facilities, such as seters,
streets and water mains.
Plan for Year
A Parke, Davis spokesman said
planning of the center, now under-
way, was estimated to require a
year and that construction of the
center would require two addi-
tional years.
Parke, Davis has obtained an
option on the 50 acres of land
"with the exception of building
additional medical research facili-
ties 'there .:if all necessary local
requirements can be fulfilled," the
spokesman said.
However acquiring the option
does not definitely mean the cen-
ter will be here, he added, "it will
just put the firm in a position to-
explore and determine all factors."
Report Given*
On Auto Crash
Joint Judiciary Council at its
meeting yesterday heard a sheriff's
office report of the May 18 traf-
fic accident which killed three
University students and two others.
John Bingley, assistant dean of
men. said afr th metUng +hnf+

where they counted on the former
Illinois governor to run well.
Stevenson, however, s h o w e d
strength in cities Sen. Kefauver
had hoped to take.
With returns in from 1,312 of
the state's 1,778 precincts, the
scoreboard showed:
Stevenson 178,246; Kefauver
177,794.
Eisenhower Wins
The Republican primary was a
walkaway for President Dwight D.
Eisenhower, who had competition
in name only from Senator Wil-
liam F. Knowland (R-Cal). In
many precincts, election officials
didn't even bother to turn in the
Republican count.
A complete count from Miami
and Dade County gave Stevenson
a margin there of nearly 4,000
votes-46,209 to 42,279. That was
at least a .partial, and perhaps
strategic victory for Stevenson, as
Sen. Kefauver had made a strong
showing there in the 1952 primary.
Stevenson definitely captured
areas along the Gulf Coast where
many "senior citizens" have come
to retire. He said at Vallejo,
Calif., yesterday he was happy
about that, although early returns
from Florida were too inconclusive
to point to the final outcome.
Final Issue
With this issue The Daily
ceases publication for second
semester.
The Daily will resume publi-
cation for summer school ses-
sion on June 26, publishing
Tuesday through Saturday dur-
ing the summer.

House Group
Wants Civil
Rights Vote
WASHINGTON (P) - Twenty-
one members of: the House said
yesterday they are moving to force
civil rights legislation out of the
House Rules Committee's control
if the committee doesn't act.
Northern Democrats and most
Republicans joined forces in the
Judiciary Committee and finally
brought out on April 25 a measure.
containing President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's civil rights recom-
mendations.
Rule Requested
The Rules Committee, whose
chairman is Rep. Howard W.
Smith (D-Va), has had under con-
sideration since May 22 a request
for a rule to bring the bill out for
debate and vote.
The 17 Democrats and four Re-
publicans who announced filing of
a discharge petition after a meet-
ing yesterday disclaimed any in-
tention of "showing a lack of con-
fidence in the rules committee."
'Overcome Difficulties'
In a carefully worded state-
ment issued through the office of
Rep. James Roosevelt (D-Calif),
they said they were acting only
to "make sure that any difficul-
ties encountered in the Rules Com-
mittee can be overcome by a ma-
jority of the House membership
sufficiently prior to the closing
rush of the session."

Senate OK's
Highway Bill;
Biggest Ever
WASHINGTON O/P)-'The Senate
wound up a marathon session early
today by passing a giant highway
bill providing for the biggest fede-
ral construction program in peace-
time history.
Passage came on a voice vote
after the Senate had been in ses-
sion more than 14 hours.
The major provision of the bill
sets up a 40,000 mile system of
interstate and defense highways
connecting 42 state capitals and a
large percentage of all cities over
50,000 population.
Bill Goes to House
The bill now goes to conference
with the House, but legislation
launching the multibillion dollar
program. will probably be agreed
on soon because house and Sen-
ate versions differ only in details.
Most of what President Dwight
D. Eisenhower wants in the way of
highway modernization program
is incorporated in the measure.
His plan to finance the project
with bond issues was rejected by
Congress last year, however.
Gas Tax Raise
In the 1956 version, both bran-
ches have written in more than 14
billion dollars in new taxes on
highway users to run the program
on a pay-as-you-build basis.
Most of the revenue would be
obtained from a penny hike in the
federal gasoline tax, now two cents
a gallon.
The House bill, passed April 27,
calls for 511/2 billion dollars of
federal gasoline tax, now two cents
a gallon.
The Senate measure would be
about the same if it also were pro-
jected over 13 years.

Atom Power'
Plan Asked
By Senator
PHILADELPHIA (R)-Senator
Clinton P. Anderson (D-NM), who
heads the Joint Congressional
Atomic Energy Committee, yester-
day proposed a billion-dollar U.S.
foreign atomic power program "to
meet the threat that godless Rus-
sia now poses."
Sen. Anderson, in an address
before the 168th General Assembly
of the Presbyterian Church in the
U.S., also suggested an accom-
panying training program for sci-
entists from, among "the uncom-
mitted peoples of the earth."
Pointing out that in the U.S.
atomic power plants can not now,
meet the cost competition of "con-
ventional plants using fossil fuels,
Sen. Anderson said:
"There are areas of the earth
where power costs are high and
where atomic power is soon to be
cheaper than conventional power,"

GOVERNMENT CLAIMS,:
Auto UneMPloyent
WASHINGTON (MP)-The government held yesterday that idle
auto workers who receive new supplemental unemployment benefits
(SUB) must report them as income annually and pay taxes on them.
However, they may receive the payments in full, without their
being reduced by withholding taxes,
Payments Are Nonwage Income
Russell C. Harrington, Internal Revenue commissioner, ruled
that the new SUB paymen'ts-due to go into effect Friday for Gen-
eral Motors, Ford and Chrysler workers-are not to be treated as
wages but as nonwage income.

EARLY RESULTS:
Senator Clements TIakes
Long Lead in Kentucky,
LOUISVILLE, Ky. W)-Senator Earle C. Clements, the Demo-
cratic whip, yesterday rolled toward renomination and a smashing
victory over the state administration of Gov. A. B. Chandler in the
Kentucky primary.
Sen. Clements piled up a whopping 72,999-vote lead over former
Rep. Joe B. Bates, who was supported by Chandler in a bitter fac-
tional battle.'

New

A number of states still are con-
sidering whether SUB benefits are
"wages" that would prevent work-
ers receiving them at the same
time they draw regular state un-
employment compensation (UC)
benefits.
There had been fears a federal
ruling that SUB payments were
"wages" might cause these states
to turn thumbs down on simul-
taneous UC and SUB payments
and that some states having al-
ready 'okayed the dual system
might change their positions.
Prohibits Payments
A total of 18 states and the Dis-
trict of Columbia already have
approved, but three states-Ohio,
Indiana and Virginia-have pro-
hibited dual payments.
The worker is entitled to com-
bine UC-SUB payments of up to
65 per cent of normal takehome
pay for his first four weeks of un-
employment, 60 per cent for the
next 22 weeks.
Under Harrington's ruling the
unemployed auto worker must re-.
port and pay federal income taxes
in his annual return on the SUB
payments he received.

Farm Money
Compromise
Passes to Ilse
WASHINGTON (P)-A compro-
mise farm money bill carrying
just under two billion dollars was
possed by both the House and Sen-
ate yesterday and sent to Presi-
dept Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The measure appropriates $1,-
993,744,968 to finance the Agri-
culture Department in the fiscal
year starting July 1.
This figure is'some five million
dollars higher than the amount
requested by the administration.
Voice votes in both chambers
marked passage of the compro-
mise, which provides ten million
dollars more than originally voted
by the House but some 25 millions
less than the totals approved by
the Senate.
The biggest item in the bill is
some 928 million dollars to offset
losses of the Commodity Credit
Corp. in its price support and loan
program.

Granted New
Duties, More
Police Righ ts
Additional Personnel
To Aid Swoverland
In Patrolling' Campus
By BILLHANEy
A squad of three or four Campus
Security Officers will be hired bV
the University next fall to en-
force driving regulations, admin-
istration officials revealed yester-
day.
These officers will be charged
with the responsibility of stopping
cars they suspect of being illegally
driven by students, as well as aid-
ing University Security Officer
Harold Swoverland in the per-
formance of his regular duties.
Several Student Government
Council members have already
questioned the propriety of using
the $7 per car registration fee,
approved by SGC Monday, for en-
forcing of rules other than driving
regulations.
New Authority
This will be the first time any
campus authority will have the
power to halt and question stu-
dent drivers.
In the past license numbers of
suspicious cars were taken downl
by Swoverland or Ann Arbor
police and checked through the
Office of Studdent Affairs before
students were called in to ex-
plain.
Officers will also be empowered
to enforce all other University
regulations, such as illegal drink-
ing, Vice-President of Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said.
SGC President Bill Adams, '57-
BAd, said, "It was my understand-
ing the money from the fee was to
be: used only for driving regula-
tion enforcement and parking
facilities."
Purpose Unmentioned
Administration members pre-
sent at the special SGC meeting
Monday afternoon made no men-
tion that the additional officers
would be used for purposes-other
than traffic enforcement, accord-
ing to Adams.
"Aside from the question of
whether driving registration fees
should be used for enforcement of
other University regulations," Dick
Snyder, '57, said, "the fact is that
I and other Council members voted
with no knowledge that the $7 fee
would be so used.

Gov. Chandler said "it's obvious"

iscussed Sen. Clements s-id only he was
"reasonably sure" of victory.
Bates was not available for
comment.

School spirit, football games and
girl cheerleaders came up for per-
ennial spring comments yesterday.
In balance, the opinions of
"those concerned" indicate that at
least for another year there will
be no change in the anatomical
makeup of the football cheerlead-
ing squad.
Co-captain of next year's squad,
Ralph Watts, '57, says he contem-
plates no change "unless the en-

comments from other campuses
that Michigan Stadium spirit "is
not the best."
Girls Would Help
"If girl cheerleaders would help
the spirit at the games," she says,
"it would be marvelous."
At present all Big Ten schools
except Michigan have mixed
squads. Watts offers the opinion,
however, that the Michigan State
changeover a few years ago was
"a failure."
Football Captain Tom Maentz,
57, thinks that the addition of

Crisler says he thinks the stu-
dent body is the determining force
in the makeup of the squad and
believes the present composition
of the squad is what the students
want.
Dean of Women Deborah Bacon
terms her position in the contro-
versy as "neutral against it."
"Every year we get two or three
energetic girls wanting this,
though they're not the people who
could be considered campus leaders
or scholars."

Morton Wins
Returns from 2,234 of 4,036 pre-
cincts gave Sen. Clements 146,297
votes to Bates' 73,298. James R.

Former Rep. Thurston B. Mor-

the Republican nomination. He
gave up a post as assistant secre-
tary of state in the administration
