Social Security
Coverage Passes
University Faculty, Employees Vote
Overwhelmingly For Federal Plan
University faculty members and employees have voted overwhelm-
ingly, in favor of Social Security coverage of their ,lobs.
Only 349 out of an eligible 4,673 voted against the Federal pro-
gram approved by the Regents at its June meeting.
The results of the referendum held at 29 campus polling places
yesterday and Monday are indicative of the great interest of Uni-
versity personnel in the retirement and insurance programs provided
by Social Security, said Vice-
President Wilbur K. Pierpont in
FBA Selects announcing the acceptance of the

Gellert Attends Meeting

Pan Hellenic Association, attend-
ed yesterday's meeting. She said
sororities expect to enter FBA on
the same basis as fraternities did
last spring.
A discussion on requirements to
be met by member joining the
plan now (as contrasted with
those who took the initial risk)
resulted in a decision to treat each
case seperately.
Same Basis Agreed On
In general, though, the Board
agreed it would be unfair to ask
sororities or professional fraterni-
ties to come in on any basis other
than that of Fraternities. Social
fraternities, though, who would
not come in last Spring, may face
stiffer financial requirements.

after a similar group at OSU.)
It was also suggested that soror-

Decision May Be Reviewed
If the tax rate for the Federal
program is increased at a later
date, the decision to continue the
University plans will be reviewed.
The affirmative vote, as con-
firmed by University auditors
Price Waterhouse and. Company,
means that entrance into the pro-
gram will be immediate and tax-
ing will start retroactive to Jan.
1 of this year in order that full
benefits may be received.
Collection of back taxes is to be
made in equal installments from
the employee's October, November
and December paychecks.
Two Per Cent Deductions
With the start of the new tax
year this coming January, payroll
deductions will be regular at the
rate of two percent of the em-
ployee' earnings below $4,200.
This means an annual tax of no
more than $84.
The referendum resulted from
State Legislature approval of the
1954 amendments to the Federal
Old Age and Survivor's Insurance
Act extending coverage to state
universities with their own re-:

Members of the faculty group
voted 1,066 to 43 for the coverage,
with 1,184 possible votes. Out of
3,489 eligible voters, the employees'
group accepted coverage 2,983 to

MIAMI (P)-Hurricane Janet, a
tremendous storm with the killer

land with 125-to-135 m.p.h. winds
yesterday, then headed toward
British Honduras and Yucatan.
Janet's furious winds were be-

the Caribbean, where the ill-fated
aircraft was last reported.-
Janet, with an estimated 200

U' Freshman
Contracts Polio
A University freshman has come
down with polio.
Eleanor Bergeret, of Peakskill,
N. Y., was taken to University
Hospital Monday night, after
spending several days in Health
Service with a "sore throat."
Dr. Morely A. Beckett, Health
Service director, said Miss Ber-
geret was getting along very well.
Thus far, no signs of paralytic
polio are present.
Dr. Beckett cautioned that,
"Among 20,000 you can very easily
have a case of polio develop." He
added that Miss Bergeret may
have contacted the disease prior
to University entrance.
On the advice of Dr. Thomas
Francis, Jr., co-director of Salk
polio 'vaccine, six women residing
in Miss Bergeret's residence hall
at Stockwell have been administ-
ered gamma globulin as a pre-
cautionary measure.

Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles and British Foreign Sec-

the statement the United States
and Britain were in harmony on
a policy of avoiding "an arms
race which would inevitably in-

"They will continue, and hope
other governments will continue,
to be guided by these principles,"
they said.
A British spokesman said the
