of insulating the canal from national policies.
The disagreement of the United States and the Soviet Union thus

A Thousand Students

A proposal for the construction
of a new International Center
which would include student hous-

Proposed by James Davis, dir-
ector of the International Center,
the building would house one
thousand students, bothforeign
The administration is hoping
they can find some group to
finance the housing unit, accord-
ing to James A. Lewis, Vice-presi-
dent of Student Affairs.
Hasn't the Funds
"The University hasn't the funds
to finance it," Lewis added.
Calling the project "purely a
dream up to now," Lewis said the
housing unit is still in ,the dis-
"We are in the process of re-
viewing what we waht contained in
the building," he said.
,According to the building pro-
posal, selected American graduate
students (Y3 to %) and mature
foreign students would be accom-
odated in apartment and residence
hall types of housing.
A few suggested facilities to be
included in the structure to serve
the residents and student body
are meeting rooms, social hall,
lounge areas, a library, activities
room, typing rooms and a dark
Also included would be a cafe-
teria and offices for International
Center counseling, administrative
and clerical staff members.
Housing Unit Cost
The cost of this unit has been
roughly estimated at four and one-
half million dollars.
Commenting on his proposal,
Davis said, "The main thing we
want is the housing."
"If we only get the housing unit,
it will do a certain job, but doesn't
help in our Center's problem with,
the lack of space," he continued.
Davis said if the proposal were
accepted and the unit was built
in town," it would be a multi-func-
"It would serve people who live
in it and the campus in general,"
If, however, the structure were
built on North Campus, Davis as-
serted the building would be al-
most exclusively housing because
of its distance from campus.

SUEZ SEMINAR-Participants (I to r) Salah Tewfik, Andy
Chaudhry, Edward Moss and Jean Paul Desparmet discussed issues
concerning the Suez Canal controversy in Rackham Amphitheatre
Suez Question Debated
By Foreign Officials
By ARLINE LEWIS
Egypt's primary reason for nationalizing the Suez Canal was the
olk canal company's failure to make improvements, Salah Tewfik,
cultural attache of the Egyptian Embassy said yesterday.
Participating in a discussion on the Suez issue with French and
British consuls, Tewfik said Egypt had always respected the free
pasage of ships through the canal and would continue to do so in
He maintained the legality of nationalization on the theory that
the Universal Suez Maritime Canal Company was recognizably Egyp-
tian in nature and therefore in -
the sphere of internal decisions.
French counsul Jean-Paul Des-
parmet referred to international
occurrences happening as late as
1954 which seemed to indicate that
Egypt had previously recognized
the international nature of the

Edward Moss, British Consul in
Detroit, contended that "for the
West, the dispute was primarily a
matter of international confidence.
"The Western powers," he said,
"do not trust Colonel - Nasser and
do not dare to leave the vital Suez
lifeline in his hands."
Moss suggested that Egypt might
have gotten what she wanted, with
respect to nationalization, had she
gonethrough normal diplomatic

Referring to Western proposals
for international control of the
Suez, Tewfik said that such control
would place the canal in an arena
of world politics, thus endanger-
ing its operation.
The Egyptian censured Britain's
threat to use force and the West's
economic pressures as contrary to
the United Nations Charter.
Consul Moss explained that a
good deal of the intense feeling
over the canal issue resulted from
its identification with the question

BROOKLYN E;)- Jackie Robin-

Enos Slaughter in the 10th inning
yesterday to give Brooklyn's Clem
Labine a 14 victory over the New
York Yankees' Bob Turley and
square the 1956 World Series at
three games each.
It was a tense battle all the way
between Labine's sharp-breaking
sinker and Turley's smoking fast
ball until Robinson finally came
through with the blow that assured
the Dodger fans of a seventh game
at Ebbets Field today.
Gilliam had walked on four
pitches after Labine popped out
to open the home 10th. Pee Wee
Reese dumped a surprise sacrifice
bunt and barely was thrown out
Manager Casey Stengel's strategy
called for an intentional walk to
the dangerous Duke Snider, Tur-
ley's eighth pass. Then Robinson
came through with the bell-ringer.
Brooklyn had only four hits off
Turley, who had carried the string
of shutout pitching to 18% con-
secutive innings before he finally
gave up a run. One of the hits was
a short fly that Slaughter lost in
the sun on Gilliam in the third.
Another was a double by Labine in
the eighth when Slaughter raced
toward the left field corner and
finally stopped short of the wall,
the ball bouncing into the seats
for a ground rule double.
Time after time the Yankees
threatened to get Labine but they
never could get the base hit they
Slaughter said he thought he

PITTSBURGH (R) -President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday,
accused the Democrats of "politi-
cal irresponsibility at its worst"
and credited his administration
with a good record of "clear ac-
complishments" toward enduring
peace and prosperity.
In a nationwide television-radio
address at a campaign rally at
Hunt Armory, President Eisen-
hower swung hard again at his
Democratic rival, Adlai E. Stev-
enson, on many fronts.
He launched a fresh attack on
the Stevenson suggestion that H-
bomb tests be halted and the mili-
tary draft be ended, both under
Without naming Stevenson but
leaving no doubt as to his target,
the President said:
"They - the opposition - have
urged stout military defense with
greater reliance on modern weap-
ons-but they advise stopping our

security and a bold role in world
affairs-while they urge us to start
thinking about ending the military

President Eisenhower added:
"I, as your President and com-
mander in. chief of the armed
forces, cannot and will not make
proposals contrary to national in-
terests-nor offer you attractive
prospects unjustified by world
"I will not promise that winning
a peace based on justice will be
cheap and easy."
The President went on to say
that the draft is "a matter of the
safety of our nation."
"We need the manpower," he
said. "We cannot pretend that
rockets and bombs make brains
and hands obsolete."
He said, too, that the draft is
needed "because our future mili-
tary burden must not be borne en-
tirely by veterans who have al-
ready earned their nation's grati-
tude," and "because we cannot
encourage our allies in the world
to shoulder arms while we throw
ours to the ground."
President Eisenhower's speech,
his fourth major TV-radio address
of his reelection campaign, was
billed in advance by the White
House as a reply to "some of the
misstatements made * . . by the
Eisenhower said that in the
"political oratory" of the oppo-
sition "we find a whole series of
curious statements falsely imply-

A report and recommendations

According to feports in the Cor-

"2) To work with the dean of
women to provide mature counsel
for the chapter.
"3) To provide a fair and open
discussion of their own views and

delegates at the convention."
Came After Convention
The Council's action came after
the sorority's biennial convention
during the summer. There was no
discussion of Alpha Zeta's action
(pledging a Negro) at the conven-
tion, the letter says.
The memorandum also charges
that the national president, Edna

Mrs. Charles I. Sayles, a Cornell
Sigma Kappa alumna, in an effort
to persuade her to force the local
chapter to reverse its pledging ac-

Dr. Enders compared the new
vaccine to the anti-smallpox vac-
cine, which also uses a living virus,
attenuated by mutation.
Dr. Brown suggested that an ob-
j ection of others in the field of epi-
demiology to the vaccine may be
the possibility of its reverting to
the virulent stage. Dr. Enders, re-
sponding to this suggestion, said
Dr. Sabin had also reported that
the mass tests would be conducted
next year in several foreign coun-
tries in addition to the United
States, although he "preferred not
to say what the countries are".
At the time of the historic an-
nouncement of the success of his

made by Dr. Jonas Salk at the

development of the Sabin vaccine.
