SGC Adopts
Better Pep
Rally Plans
Program Ever
A pan for an elaborate pep
raly before the Ohio State game
was adopted last night at Student
Government Council meeting.
The program, which features
seven University acts and the Uni-
versity Marching Band and cheer-
leaders, was called by Tom Bleha,
"The best-organized pep rally this
University has ever seen.
The Council was pleased with
the work done by the Central Pep
Rally Committee and its chair-
man, Myki Gold, '58.
Miss Gold said the objective of
this pep rally "is to avert diffi-
culties which arose at the last pep
Rally To Start At 8:15
The rally is scheduled to start
at 8:15 p.m. instead of the usual
7:30. The purpose of the later
starting time is to leave less time
for "unorganized folly" after the
For the first time at such a
rally two varsity football players
and a coach will be on the pro-
gram. Johnnie Greene, '44, form-
er, Michigan and Detroit Lion
player will be the main speaker.
Dick Blazhiser, '54, is the head
toastmaster with Bob Trost, '58,
and John Schubeck, '57, filling in
between acts.
University Band and cheerlead-
ers will lead the students from the
Union to Ferry Field where a well-
lighted stage with a public ad-
dress system has been constructed
for the entertainment.
Dance Discussion Tabled
Central Pep Rally Committee al-
so suggested dances be scheduled
as part of the rally. Discussion was
tabled until more information
could be acquired about possible
locations for the dances.
SGC also delegated the Student
Book Exchange to the Union on
"a one-year trial basis."
Bill Diamond, who proposed the
motion said, "We feel that a small
organization may not be able to
handle the book exchange. Due to
the size of the project it was felt
that one of the six major service
organizations should handle it.
Four Groups Interested
"IHC and Pan Hellenic were not
interested. Assembly a nd t h e

sorship and Interfraternity Coun-

Mitchell Says
Changing T-H
Holds No Hope
DENVER (')-Secretary of La-

bor James P. Mitchell said yester-
day he has abandoned any hope
that the next congressional session
will approve Administration pro-
posals to change the Taft-Hartley
Labor Law,
But he said President Dwight D.
Eisenhower again will recommend
changes to the legislators.
Mitchell spent 30 minutes con-
ferring with President Eisenhow-
er at Fitzsimons Army Hospital.
He told a news conference af-
terward the President will pressa
once more for half a dozen items
of labor legislation which the
democratic - controlled Congress
failed to enaot in the last session,
along with the new legislative4
suggestions which can't be dis-

To Vice 'Expose'
Free Press Names Dice Den.,
Claims Some Bettors From 'U'
An "expose" under the banner headline: "Reporter Visits Gambling
Den; Toledo Dice Lure Students," was released last night by the
Detroit Free Press.
Students concerned are Michigan students, and the place they're
reputed to have visited is the Dixie Inn, 1.9 miles from the Ohio-
Michigan state line, on the northwest outskirts of Toledo.
No names were mentioned in the story, save an isolated reference
to four of the gamblers, the chief bettor for the group referred to as
"The Professor."
"The Professor" says he was graduated from the University of
Michigan in 1952," the story relates. "He wears no graduation ring.
But he knows the names of the

State SenateI
Speed Limit
Bill Would Affect'
South Michigan
LANSING (R)-The Senate to-
night passed and sent to the House
a bill to impose a speed limit on~
highways in the southern two-
thirds of Michigan.
The vote was 30 to three, with
Senators Lane, Rahoi and Swain-
son, all Democrats, voting no.
The bill would affect that part
of Michigan lying south of Town
Line 16, which corresponds to the
southern border of Clare, Osceola,,
Lake and Mason Counties.
Bay, Huron Included
To avoid dividing counties cross-
ed by Town Line 16, the Senate+
specified that Bay and Huron
Counties be included entirely with-
in the speed limit area.
The limit. specified is 65 miles
an hour in the daytime and 55
miles at night.
By a 26-7 vote, the Senate also}
approved a bill authorizing a high- #
way traffic safety center at Michi-
gan State University.

Michigan Licenses
The first indication that any
Michigan students have been in-
volved follows four paragraphs of
descriptive information concerning
the Dixie Inn, with special notice
to the cars in the parking lot-
"Fourteen of the cars, mostly late
models and expensive makes, bear
Michigan license plates."
Then the anonymous reporter
makes his reference to the
University, stating: "There are
indications that students from the
University of Michigan find their
way into the dim parking lot. In-
side they manage to drop their

Here on campussDean of Men
Walter B. Rea stated he could
make no comment on the story
itself without first reading and in-
vestigating it.
He did say that his office was
not aware of any gambling in the
last few years. "In fact, we thought
it was one vice we didn't have,"
he said.
Alumni Pressure
The most recent incident con-:
cerning gambling occurred some
15 to 20 years ago. "I can't re-
call exactly how long ago it. was,
but a few students got in trouble.,
We learned of it," he said, "and
some of our alumni with influence
in Toledo applied pressure and we
closed the place to students."
However, since that time there
have been no reports of students
gambling in Toledo. "We are
completely uninformed of any:
present practices there," he said
He did cite the fact that the
expense of the games made it dif-
ficult for students to participate
and unlikely that they would be
there, save possibly a few. "Stu-
dents just don't have the money
for big games," he said.
His reference was based on a
trip to the houses when the prob-
lem flared years ago.
Permits Not Mentioned
He cited the fact that the story
made no mention of University
driving permits on cars seen in
the lot. This could lead to many
discoveries, one possibility being
that students had gone home for
the weekend, taken their family's
car and gone on their own.
In this instance the responsi-
bility would be the family's. "There
are so many possibilities," Dean
Rea said, "that we can't make any
statement until we learn more1
"I'm sure one or two students
out of 20,000 would do anything"
he continued, "but it is individual,
not representative."
The FreenPressstory closed on
an ominous note. A woman had
called the sheriff, reported a loss
and asked for the sheriff to arrive.
'Wait an Hour'
"But you wait an hour," the
story proclaimed, "and there is no
sign of the Lucas County Sher-
iff's Department.
"Maybe it's what you'd call le-
galized gambling." And the story
left the reader pondering there.

Dulles Stresses Free
Elections in Germany
GENEVA ()-The Soviet Union
advanced a proposal yesterday for
gradual merger of East and West
The three Western foreign min-
isters promptly rejected it and
repeated their demand for free
elections to unify Germany.
Soviet Foreign Minister Vyache-
slav M. Molotov also revived an
old Soviet proposal for withdrawal
of foreign armed forces from di-
vided Germany and set a new
three-month deadline for it. The
West immediately turned a cold
shoulder to this idea.
"Only Way To Tackle Problem"
The merger plan would be built
around an all-German council
from the two parliaments in East
and West Germany. Arguing that
this was the only way to tackle
the unity problem, Molotov pro-
posed to the Big Four foreign min-
isters conference:
1. Formation of an all-German
council as a "consultative body"
2. Under the council, mixed com-
mittees from the two governments
would deal with economic and cul-
tural ties, including German cur-
rency, intra-German financial
transactions, customs, post and
telegraph and transport.
Would Agree On Arms
3. The council "shall bring about
accord" on the strength, arma-
ments and location of forces to
defend the two republics' frontiers
and territories.
4. The council "shall bring about
accord" on the republics' partici-
pation in European security meas-
ures and "shall consider by mutual
agreement" questions relating to
"the bringing about of prerequi-
sites for the unification of Ger-
many as a peaceful and democratic
Proposals "Unparalled Dictates"
British Foreign Secretary Harold
Macmillan declared, "The Soviet
zone proposals are an unparalled
dictate, far more drastic. than the
provisions of any previous treaty.
"The West wants, and all the
four powers here are committed
to work for, an independent, united
Germany free to choose its home
and foreign policies."
United States Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles told Molotov
that "only by free elections can the
wishes of the German people be
States Proposal
In reviving the Soviet proposal
for withdrawal of foreign forces,
the Russian leader said:
"As a first ste,, toward a rap-
prochement between the Bonn and
East Berlin governments, the So-
viet Union proposes that all foreign
armed forces should be removed
from German territory to within
their own national frontiers with
the exception of certain well-con-
trolled contingents."
