Four Bodies
In Jackson
Disaster Toll Lists
10 Dead, 15 Injured
All victims of the Jackson build-
ing collapse were accounted for
r yesterday when four bodies were
removed from the wreckage.
Those removed from the debris
after over 50 hours of digging by
rescue workers were: William Rose
of Rives Junction, Charles Amann
of Jackson, Floyd R. Baker, of
Spring Arbor and Claude Binchus,
of Jackson.
10 Killed
With all missing construction
workers now accounted for casual-

fifteen injured in the collapse of

Michigan's worst industrial acci-
The State of Michigan promised
yesterday "the best minds avail-
able" will be called to investigate
the twisted steel and chunks of
concrete remains of the $2,800,000
structure. The building was to be
the key center of power for Michi-
gan industries in event of enemy
attack and was designed to stand
the effects of an A-bomb attack.
Alt, Legatsk Consulted
Two University professors will
begin analyzing huge chunks of
concrete and sections of steel beam
to determine if the strength of
materials used in construction
measured up to State building
safety standards.
Prof. Glenn L. Alt, specialist in
steel construction, and Prof. Leo
M. Legatski, concrete structures
expert, were hired by Consumer
Power Co., for a closed investiga-
tion and will report findings only
to that group.
As a result of the disaster a state
legislative committee yesterday
called a hearing for Nov. 9 on
building safety standards.
One Injured
In Accident
Three men narrowly escaped
death when they were involved in
a spectacular three-car head-on
collision on Stadium Blvd. near
Liberty St. last night at .8:45 p.m.
Julius Hinderer of Ann Arbor
was taken to St. Joseph's Mercy
Hospital where the extend of his
injuries was undetermined.
The other two drivers, Wally
Walker, 1457 Granada, Ann Arbor
and Daryl A. Young of Peru, Illi-
nois were uninjured.
State Police oficials could not
yet determine the cause of the
collision which completely de-
molished Young's and Hinderer's

Alumni Coercion
Fraternity houses are owned by alumni corporations; a cheerful

Many nationals have a large number of southern chapters.
Theta Chi, according to Tim Hays, '56, president, tried to abolish

WASHINGTON - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yester-
day the constitutional amendment
which bars a president from a
third term was not wholly wise."
He dropped that comment into
a news conference discussion as
to whether this constitutional bar,
which became effective in 1951,
might lessen the influence of a
president in his second term.
President Eisenhower discounted
the idea, saying:
"I don't believe that a presi-
dent's influence of his party is
lowered too much,.for this reason:
Certainly, whoever is the aspirant
at the end of two terms for presi-
dent will want that president's
support, and will want his bless-

Ritual Subleties
Of course, removal of a clause
may be just window dressing.
There are many subtle ways to
keep "undesirable" elements out
of the house.
Parts of ritual may serve this
purpose. Trigon, for instance, ac-
cording to Jack Rollin, '56, presi-
dent, would be interested in taking
a man of "Hebrew descent," but
could not actually take a Jewish
There are elements of the ritual
which no Jew could follow.
Tacit agreement can be just as
effective. When Sigma Alpha Mu,
a predominantly Jewish fraternity,
had its clause removed, "nobody
took it seriously," Harvy Weiss,
'56, president, told the Daily.

ideas on campus, the house is now
interested in pledging gentiles.

Men Fit the House
Paul Elvidge, '56, president of
Delta Kappa Epsilon, felt that
many Jewish boys "rush the Jew-
ish house4."
Dave Zelisse, '56, of Tau Kappa
Epsilon explained the problem an-
other way. "Fraternity rushing is
a two way proposition. The rushee
is looking for a house in which he
will fit best.
"The rushers are looking for a
guy who will fit it best." For this
reason he thinks the chances of
integration are small.

With clouds but no rain pre-

Nearly' 200 city, county and

Michigan Faces First Big Ten Test

it promises to be the largest crowd ever to see a football game
in the Michigan Stadium, and it also promises "on paper" to be one
of the nation's most important battles this fall.
An expected sellout crowd today of 101,001, made possible by the
new press box and changing the seating on the curves, will watch
highly-ranked Michigan and higher-rated Michigan State play the
Big Ten's first knock-down game. Kickoff-time is 1:30 p.m.
The pre-game edge lies with the visiting Spartans, despite the
facts that physically all may not be well.

WASHINGTON (R) -President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yes-
terday the testing of atomic weap-
ons "has been-and continues-
an indispensable part of our de-
fense program."
He expressed regret that H-bomb
testing has been made a campaign
issue and added in a special state-
ment issued at the White House:
"The manner in which the issue
has been raised can lead-only to
confusion at home and misunder-
standing abroad."
Directed at Stevenson
This was obviously aimed at Ad-
lai E. Stevenson, the Democratic
presidential nominee, who has pro-
posed several times in recent
months that steps be taken to halt
or limit the testing of huge nu-
clear weapons.
President Eisenhower did not
mention Stevenson by name, re-
ferring only to "certain proposals,"
which were those of his Demo-
cratic opponent.
The President said the Ameri-
can government "has consistently
affirmed- and reaffirmed its readi-
ness-indeed, its strong will-to
restrict and control both the test-
ing and the use of nuclear weap-
ons under specific and supervised
international disarmament agree-
Caution Expressed
But he said he would insist on
a foolproof agreement "for how-
ever long I am charged with chief
responsibility for the security of
our nation."
He said that over the months
more than one proposal had been
made for halting H-bomb tests,
and quoted what Stevenson has
said at various times. He said
"these proposals have differed.
These differences themselves have
caused confusion."

E. Stevenson criticized Vice Presi-
dent Richard M. Nixon yesterday
for using "threadbare shouts"
about socialism.
He also said the Republicans
were using "soft soap" slogans,
gimmicks, bandwagons and "in-
fernal machines of modern, high-
pressure politics" to re-elect Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The D e m o c r a t i c presidential
rnominee, speaking in Yale Univer-
sity's Woolsey Hall, said Vice-
President Nixon in this year's cam-
paign reverted "'to the familiar
tactics of associating Democratics
with socialism."
'Innuendo, Smear,.and Slander'
In his speech at a rally in the
university, Stevenson contrasted
Vice President Nixon's tactics with
those of his fellow California Re-
publican, Chief Justice Earl War-
ren, and said:
" do not think the American'
people are going to be much more
impressed in 1956 by the vice pres-
ident's threadbare shouts about
"Hard-hitting, factual debate is
the essence of democracy," Stev-
enson said. "Innuendo, smear and
slander are not. The debauch the
language of politics; the defile
the dialogue which is the means
by which free society governs it-
Attended Game
Stevenson moved into New Haven
by "whistle-stop" train from New
York City, where he attended the
World Series battle between the
Dodgers and the Yankees. Before
the game he spoke at a street
rally in Brooklyn.
