i ComHmittee
To Review
Suspensions
Student Government Council's
special committee appointed last
week to investigate the suspension
of Sigma Kappa sorority chapters
at Cornell and Tufts Universities
will hold its first formal meeting
today.
According to Panhellenic Presi-
dent Carol deBruin, '57, a member
of the committee along with SGC's
three officers, members have been
gathering information on their
own, preparatory to today's pool-
ing of thoughts. Additional infor-
mation expected from the Deanof
Women's office is expected on
Dean Deborah Bacon's return from
a trip out of town.
Meanwhile Barbara Busch, '57-
Ed.; president of the local Sigma
Kappa, revealed that the. sorority
has had no word on the, suspen-
sions from their national. She at-
tributed this to the fact that mem-
bers of the national council, which
suspended the two sororities, are
each in different parts of the
country during the current rush-
ing season.
While "they may be doing some-
thing separately," Miss Busch. ad-
ded, the national office has, not yet
indicated that any statement is
forthcoming. However4 "they are
well aware of what our situation
is here."
While she declined to predict
what the local's stand on the sus-
pensions might be, Miss Busch said
the members "have been giving it
some thought."
She refused to set a time limit
on when the local might be able
to prepare a statement, but she
expressed the hope that one could
be released sometime soon after
the end of rushing this week
Students Defy
School Pickets,
By Petitioning
BEAUMONT, Tex. (A) - Lamar
State College of Technology stu-
dents yesterday drew up a formal
petition protesting anti-integra-
tion picketing of the school by a
newly organized White Citizen's
Council.
College President F. L. McDon-
ald said the petition which urged
the pickets to leave the school and
go home was entirely student ac-
tivity.
Beaumont sheriff and police de-
partment officials met with the
City Council and voted to ask the
State Highway Department for
more officers to patrol the high-
way near the school.
They said traffic congestion was
a mounting problem due to recent
integration disturbances. The of-
ficials said, however, that the ap-
peal was purely for traffic control
and was in no way indicative of
any anticipated violence.
B. R. Lee, 45, a Negro Beau-
mont refinery worker, yesterday
was declared innocent of charges
of abusive language filed against
him Monday by one of the white
woman picketers. Corporation
Court Judge Ethridge R. Wright
ruled that Lee's language was not
abusive.
Smith Appointed
Associate Dean

Former Secretary of University
Law School Prof. Russel A. Smith
was appointed Associate Dean of
Law School, not Dean, as appeared
in yesterday's Daily.
In his new capacity as associate

the Republican party to climax a
day which saw the presidential
race turn a big corner.
President Eisenhower's "wicked
nonsense" crack at the Democrats
brought Stevenson out, gloves off'
and catch as catch can. Tobe
called nonsensical was one tijg,
Stevenson said, but to be labeled
wicked was another.
At a rally on the historic green
of Morristown; N.J., he said:
Political looseness
"I am afraid that this is becom-
ing part of .the political looseness
that previously was identified with
Richard Nixon who always, talks
about: the opponents in terms of
'appeasement' and 'communism'
and 'treachery' and words like
that. I do hope the vice-presiden-
tial taste for extreme and loose
language Is not becoming conta-
gious."
Aides said Stevenson's stratgy
has been to "get Eisenhower off
his pedestal" so their man can
slug toe-to-toe with him on the is-
sues. President Eisenhower gave
them the chance Monday at
Cleveland when he said Democrat-
Ic claims that only Democrats care
for the working man were "wicked
nonsense."
TV Time
It was disclosed, meanwhile,
that Stevenson has bought-15 min-
utes of nationwide television time
on the CBS network to answer
President Eisenhower's Cleveland
address. Stevenson will speak on
TV at 10 p.m., EST 9 a.m. CST
tomorrow from Johnstown, Pa.
In his talk, Stevenson said Pres
dent Eisenhower 'and-his adfnilfs-
tration gave the people nothing
but "words-empty words" instead
of action on foreign policy, slum
clearance, schools and immigra-
tion.
"Why are there words without
action wherever human interests
are at stake?" Stevenson de-
manded, and then replied
"The historic function of the
Republican party is to. represent
the economic and. social philoso-
phy of the well-to-do and the
privileged, of the big corporations,
the big interests ... This admin-
istration, has performed that func-
tion well, .:. The Republican par-
ty is not a fit instrument to govern
a nation'that 'wants to make pro-
gress for the benefit of the ordi-
nary people .."
'We Want Ike'
Stevenson earlier had a word
about President Eisenhower's per-
sonal role in governing the nation.
At Passaic, N. J., where his motor-
cade stopped en route to Jersey
City, some voices in the crowd took
to chanting, "We want Ike."
Stevenson smiled and said:
"Speaking of Ike, I'd trust him
with practically anything but pub-
lic office."
With election day five weeks
away, Stevenson swung into New
Jersey on a plane-train-auto tour
of the highly populous and Indus-
trial East.
He flew from Washington to
touch-at points in six New Jersey'
counties whose vote hurt him the
most in 1952 in losing the state's
16 Electoral College votes to Presi-
dent Eisenhower.

Ticket scalping threat for the
sold-out Michigan State and Army
games will be more wide-spread
and acute than ever before, ac-
cording to University and City of-
ficials.
Ann Arbor police department has
already taken precautions to check
ticket-profiteering.
Dectective Lt. George Stauch
will have plainclothesmen station-
ed at strategic points throughout
city and camp:us areas
"We have men checking on illeg-
al sale of tickets prior to every
Michigan football game," Stauch
said, "but of course we especially
concentrate on the sell-out games."
No Cases
The police department reported
no cases of scalping at last week's
game.
Maximum penalty for saleof
tickets above face value is $100 fine
and/or 90 days in jail. City Court
Judge Francis O'Brien said the ex-
tent of the penalty is "determined
on the merits of each individual
case."
Four years ago two men were
sentenced to 60 days in jail and
fineda $75 by Judge O'Brien for
"selling tickets with .the sole in-
tention of making a profit"
Judge O'Briensaid his usual
policy in such a case is. to "send
the offender to jail if he has, a
background including similar of-
fenses, put him in jail and levy .a
fine also, if there is proof the
person is part of a ringengaged
in buying up and re-selling, tick-
ets."
No Jurisdiction'
The Ann Arbor police depart-
ment has no jurisdiction to pro-
hibit or prosecute the student who
sells his student ticket, "unless he
sells it for more than the apprais-
ed four-dollar value."

ELECTION PLANS:
Ike Extends Campaign
With New York Visit
WASHINGTON W)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower broadened
his campaign for re-election yesterday to include an appearance in
New York City late this month.
Presidential Secretary James; C. Hagerty announced this without
giving any., details, but.It was apparent that one reason for the de
cision. was to help Republican. Jacob K. Javits. in. his- race for. the
United States Senate from New York.
The announcement followed-a White House conference between
President Eisenhower and Javits, who is opposed in,. the Senate race
by New York City's Democratic mayor, Robert Wagner.
Javits, a native and resident of New York City, is now the state
attorney, general. He was the, only Republican elected to statewide
office in the 1954 elections, de-
feating Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr.
for attorney general.

Comments
Press Conference
Revision Noted
WASHINGTON (') - -Secretary
f State John Foster Dulles said
esterday there "s some differ
nce" with Britain and Frace on
the Suez Canal dispute-but two
hours later he rewrote his news
conference record to strike this.
out.
In reply to a newsman, Dulles
said the difference stemmed from
an American desire to play "a
somewhat independent role" in
dealing with anticolonal nations.
Later, after , editing his news '
erence transcript, he authorized
a spokesman to report he meant
to say "there has been some dif-
'erence."
Toned Down Remarks
Dulles 'also toned down his earli-
er remarks that these differences
involved "fundamental th in g s"
such as the American desire to
encourage newly independent na-
tions 'toward nonviolent developV
ment.
Press officer Lincoln White, who
told reporters of the changed an-
swere. declined to say whether the
differences 'which Dulles, first,
spoke about had been somehowre-
solved' in the intervening two
hours.
It seemed more likely that Dul-
les changed his remarks for Igr
of offending British and Fienc'
foreign ministers with whom be
plans to meet in New York Friday.
However, in his revised answer,
Dulles acknowledged that the Am-
erican view toward the problem of
colonialism in Asia and Africa is
"not 'always identical" with that
of Britain and France.
"Now, there the United States
plays a somewhat independent
rble," he said.
U.S. Role
"I suspect that the United States
will find that its role, not only to-
day but in the coming years, will
be 'to try' to aid that process of
orderly independence without iden-
tifying itself 100 per cent either
with the so-called colonial powers
or with the powers which are pri-
marily and uniquely concerned
with the problem of getting their
independence as rapidly as possi-
ble;"
Answering queries on other for-
eign policy developments, Dulles
also:
1. Appealed to Europe to unite
as "a third great power" in the
world but said it was "unthink-
able" that it should be neutral to-
ward Soviet communism.
2. Reported he has "no reason
to doubt" that Yugoslavia's Mar-
shal Tito is sticking to his long-
standing 'desire, for independence
from Russian control, despite his
secret conferences with Soviet
leaders.b
In, vigorously endorsing new
Western European moves toward
unity, Dulles noted that both he
and President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower have consistently supported
this objective, which has been the
dreamof some Eureopean states-
men for decades.

ELECTION LAW:
Pierce Labels Student,
Vote Practice 'Lentent
By PETER ECKSTEIN
A University law school professor yesterday said Ann Arbor
officials are "probably justified" in their interpretations of Michigan
election laws on student voting.
Prof. William J. Pierce of the law school, associate director of.
the Legislative Research Center, described the practices of city offi.
cials as "fairly lenient" toward students. Yesterday, The Daily ran
a survey of registration practiced in Ann Arbor and other university
towns in Michigan which showed wide discrepancies in practice both
within Ann Arbor and among the towns surveyed.
Acceptance Dependant'
Prof. Pierce agreed that a student's acceptance as a voter often
"depends on which clerk he happens to see."
He attributed this to the fact that "the truth is often, difficult
to ascertain." In language similar to that used' by Ann Arbor officials;
Prof. Pierce said the student's qualifications as an elector "largely
have to do with his intentions" of remaining in Ann Arbor or leaving
upon graduation.
