Tighten Hold
segregationists tightened their boy-
cott at Weaverton School yester-
day and began campaigning to
spread it to other integrated
schools in the community.
The segregationists, operating
under the banner of the White
Cihizens Council, appealed through
newspaper ads for support from
white students in the six city
schools and 11 in the county.
The Henderson Ministerial Assn.
stepped into the dispute yesterday
morning, urging parents to keep
their children in Weaverton. But
206 of 870 white students reported
for classes with 5 Negroes.

HUNTINGTON, Ind. (kP) - Lt.
Gov. Harold W. Handley, Ind.
urged more systematic'road plan-
ning by county officials yesterday
but he opposed any further state
supervision or financial help.
Handley, the Republican nomi-
nee for governor, suggested in a
Huntington campaign speech that
counties classify their roads into
primary and secondary systems to .
establish priorities for improve-
ments and to pay engineers higher
Although he said he would op-
pose any shakeup of the present
state-county-city split of state
road funds, Handley recognized
that counties are short of money
for roads and recommended:
"Because of this need for local
roads, I am proposing repeal of
the state 15-cent property tax.
Those 15 cents should be available
to counties and municipalities for
their own use."
Handley said it would be "folly
to proceed with rapid expansion
of our national superhighway sys-
tem without giving equal atten-
tion to farm-to-market roads."
Sen. Homer E. Capehart told a
Republican rally in Rushville last
night that the Democrats have
made "wholly untrue" charges that
the Eisenhower administration has
tried to increase the interest rate
on rural electrification loans.





ROENNE, Bornholm, Denmark
(A)-A young Polish air force offi-
cer flew an ultra-modern Soviet
MIG jet fighter to Denmark yes-
terday in a daring 200-mile dash
for freedom.
Danish experts marvelled over
the plane and one said: "It's really
something very special."
The pilot said he flew un-
molested from a base near Poznan,
site of the Polish workers' bread
and freedom uprising in June.
Reached Goal
He narrowly missed being shot
down by Danish antiaircraft guns'
with his goal in sight.
A Danish army unit readied its
guns when the improved model'
MIG15 circled over Roenne. The
city was bombed accidentally by
Russian war planes in 1945 and
the gunners remembered.
The Danish gun commander at
the last moment decided to wait
and see if this was another Polish
TV or No?

of any party or candidate," and.
"Use of Lecture Rooms and
Auditoriums-The policy of the
Board of Regents is to encourage
the timely and rational discussion
of topics whereby the ethical and
intellectual development of the
student body and the general wel-
fare of the public may be promoted
and a due respect inculcated in the
people for society at large and for
the constituted government of the
state and nation."
Late last evening, Engman sum-
med up the YR's. feeling toward
the situation, saying, "the Univer-
sity Young Republicans do agree
that Prof. Brandt and the Lecture
Committee must necessarily en-
force University regulations.
"Even if we had applied formally
for TV priviliges," he continued,
"the request would probably have
been .denied under the present
Regent's Bylaws.
"Our contention is with the By-
laws themselves. It would appear
that the University is more con-
cerned with impartiality than with

airman defecting. Two other Polish
fliers fled to Bornholn in MIG15
fighters three years ago.
Perfect Landing
The swift jet came barreling
down to a perfect belly landing,
sliding 450 yards across the air-
port grass. The only damage was
to the tip of the right wing.
The pilot, Flight Lt.-Zygmond
Cosciliak, 28, stepped out, com-
plaining in German. The man he
brought with him showed new run-
ways on the airport outside Roen-
ne, capital of this rocky Danish
island in the Baltic. Runways
actually were not even finished.
Gosciliak was unhurt except for
slight scratches on his face. He
asked for asylum.
Reached Sea
The lieutenant said he took his
plane from the base near Poznan.
That involved the risk of flying
125 miles over Polish territory
before he reached the sea.
The. pilot told authorities he
simply broke out from a formation
flight and dropped his wing tanks
to gain speed. Other jets in the
formation neither shot at him nor
chased him, he added.
Gosciliak said he was not fol-
lowed by other planes at any time.
He said he sped the 200 miles to
Bornholm in 20 minutes. The
MIG15 easily averaged 600 miles
an hour.
Gosciliak was flown to Copen-
hagen in a military plane.
Union Sets
Tryout Dates
In an effort to acquaint students
interested with all campus organi-
zations as well as their own group,
the Union has scheduled two try-
out meetings for 4:15 and 7:15
p.m. Thursday.
Sponsors from Michigras, Home-
coming, Hatcher Open Houses,
Orientation, Gulantics, Glee Club
and the Union's Saturday night
dances will explain the function-
ing of each of these activities at
both meetings.
After a one semester training
period, men who choose to work
on these activity committees will
be eligible to petition for office.
A mass rushing smoker will be
held immediately after the 7:15
p.m. tryout meeting.

Sorority's National Hit
For Suspending Chapters

(Continued from Page 1)
The issue is not clear; to the
general public because of the tra-
ditional secrecy of both local and
national sororities' constitutions.
Interest's Sources
The interest within the national
sorority with the constitutional
questions involved in the suspen-
sions derives from two sources.
Some Sigma Kappas are report-
edly concerned over the moral im-
plications of withdrawing charters
from groups which pledged Ne-
groes, if that in fact was the
reason for suspension.
There is also concern over the
pressures being brought to bear
upon several Sigma Kappa locals
as a result of the National Coun-
cil's action.
F'or example, in Massachusetts,
where the suspended Tufts chap-
ter is located, a state representa-
tive Is undertaking an investiga-
tion of the suspensions.
Sponsor School
If he is able to prove that the
chapters were suspended for pledg-
ing Negroes, he plans on sponsor-
ing a ban on the sorority at any
state-supported school.
Varsity Night
Auditions Set
Persons interested in perform-
ing in the 1956 Varsity Night may
audition at 7:00 p.m., October 2 at
Harris Hall.
Varsity Night features a number
of student acts which are selected
during the auditions.
Cash prizes based on audience
applause will be awarded.



Only the chapter at the Uni-
versity of Massachusetts would be
And at the University, Student
Government Council is expected to
consider today the question of
possible violation of University
anti-bias regulations.
Several SGC members have sug-
gested that the local chapter would
be violating regulations- and
hence subject to withdrawal of
recognition--if it is found to be
subject to suspension in the case
it pledged a Negro woman.

the Ann Arbor Civic Ballet per-
formance of excerpts from Tchai-

to increase public interest in this
art and to establish a permanent
group of ballet dancers here.
This non-profit group seeks to
provide an opportunity for local
dancers and interested University
students to have professional bal-
let coaching and to participate in
public programs.
Mrs. Richard C. Miller, a former
student at the School of American
Ballet in New York will direct the
corps this year. Co-directors are
Mrs. Sylvia Hamer, a ballet teach-
