Cornell Sorority
,Becomes Local
University President Concerned
Over Sigma Kappa National's Act
By RICHARD SNYDER
Daly Editor
Sigma Kappa's suspended Cornell chapter voted unanimously to
become a local sorority late Monday.
At the same time, Cornell President Deane W. Malott released
a letter sent Oct. 3 to the sorority's national president, expressing the
university's concern over Sigma Kappa's action following the pledging
last spring of a Negro girl by the Alpha Zeta-chapter at Cornell.
Alsd'released was a letter from the five-member National Council
to the local reaffirming its suspension of the local.

No Reply Yet
The Cornell President has as yet
received no reply to his letter from
the national.
Stating that he defended the
local chapter inits decision, Malott
said in his letter that it was im-
probable that Cornell would rein-
state the national without assur-
ances that the chapter and the
university would not in the future
e- be,"subjected to this sort of unex-
r plainable action on the part of the
- national officers of Sigma Kappa."
id He stressed that the members of
n Alpha Zeta "apparently violated
of no' provision of their charter, nor
n did their action appear in the
ik slightest to transcend the good
taste which we demand of our
d students.
n. "It seems entirely clear to all of
- us why the action was taken."
8- The Oct. 3 letter was'prefaced by
ed an explanation of why the univer-
sity was concerned over the sus-
s- pension. "When national organi-
c. -zations determine the way in
d which Cornell students shall live,
- with whom they associate and un-
y der what conditions, you inevitably
come into an area of concern to
as me as President of Cornell Uni-
d versity."
n- Reserves Rights
n Malott said that while the Cor-
of nell chapter desires to remain na-
Y- tionally affiliated, "it does, how-
ever, hold high its right to select
is members of the basis of con-
Lb geniality and merit.
te "I support all local chapters of
our fraternity system," he con-
n tinued, "in seeking the right to
of exercise their discretion in select-
ing members."
h, Hitting at the National Council's
at refusal to offer any other reason
to for the suspension other than "for
the good of the sorority as a
whole," the Cornell President said,
"We have assumed that the fra-
d ternities and sorities on our cam-
pus are here to serve the best
interests of the students of the
o university.
I- No Cooperation
"This they cannot do if national
o officers take action with no can-
d sultation with us, and win no
- opportunity for cooperatic a be-
tween us."
The Daily learned last night that
a move might be made at this
Tuesday's meeting f Cornell's
Student Council to establish
among all affiliated organizations
the iight of free selection of mem-
bers by the local chapters at
Cornell.
It is believed that plans toward
this end are now being formulated
ill by a group including the presidents
of Panhel, the Interfraternity
w Council and the Student Council
st at Cornell, and the Editor-in-Chief
of The Cornell Daily Sun.

Ike Rejects
Stevenson's
Proposal
Won't Suspend
Nuclear Testing
WASHINGTON .P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower said yester-
day that "in the light of postwar
history the United States could
not even dare" suspend H-bomb
testing without a system of de-
pendable international disarma-
ment controls.
In a massive report drafted by
his military, foreign policy and
atomic chiefs, the President cate-
gorically rejected the proposal of
Adlai E. Stevenson that his coun-
try take the lead in seeking an
agreement halting the tests of
large nuclear weapons.
Critical Issue
"The critical issue is not a mat-
ter of testing nuclear weapons-
but of preventing their use in nu-
clear war," President Eisenhoweri
sid.1
Until pacts are made which
firmly secure international trust
and understanding, the President
said, the country must make sure
its weapons will command such
respect as to "dissuade any other
nation from the temptation of ag-
gression."
Prevent War'
'Thus do we develop weapons,
not to wage war, but to prevent
war," he said.
"There is nothing in postwar
history to justify the belief that
we should - or that we could
even dare - accept anything less
than sound safeguards and con-
trols for any disarmament ar-
rangements.
"I remain profoundly hopeful
that - if we stay strong and
steadfast - the reality of signi-
ficant world disarmament will
come to pass:"
Sympathy Indisputable
The President said that Russia's
"sympathy with the idea of stop-
ping H-bomb tests, is indisput-
able."
But its formula for this step
toward disarmament is based on
"simple voluntary agreements,"
he said, which allow for "no safe-
guards, no control, no inspection."

Protest

. S.S.R.

ephone call from the Kremlin to
Wladyslaw Gomulka, new first sec-
retary of the Polish Communist
party.
The caller was Soviet Communist
party boss Nikita S. Khrushchev
and he was making a complete
climb-down, the informant said.
He gave this version : '
Slight Reservation
Khrushchev told Gomulka that
with some slight reservations he
accepted the new Polish Socialist
policy. He apologized for an attack
by Pravda, the Soviet Communist
organ, on the Polish press. The
Pravda attack was one cause of ill-
feeling.
Khrushchev said that Pravda
within the next day or so will print
a virtual retraction.
Moscow Trip
The source added that Gomulka
and Premier Josef Cyrankiewicz
will go to Moscow this week, prob-
ably Friday. They will talk with
the Soviet party Presidum-Polit-
buro. "
The discussions are expected to
end with a joint declaration simi-
lar to that with which Khrushchev
patched up Moscow's quarrel with
President Tito of Yugoslavia.
The Soviet Communist boss ap-
parently yielded in the face of
bitter anti-Soviet demonstrations
inside Poland and warnings from
the Polish government that his
policies might lead to a bloody up-
rising.

Ijems Hit Ike Too Late
For Voting Effect-Prof.
By MICHAEL KRAFT
Agreeing with his fellow panel member that elections are probab-
ly won between campaigns, Prof. Warren Miller, of the political sci-
ence department, said last night that the recent Democratic strategy
of criticizing President Dwight D. Eisenhower personally is seemingly
to late to effect the campaign.
In a discussion of the election with Prof. Angus Campbell, direc-
tor of the Survey Research Institute, Prof. Miller told a Young Re-
publican gathering that also because of time, the Democrats have
successfully developed hostility against Vice-President Richard M.

Thousands

In Budapest
Police Fire Shots .

Pull Down Red Star
BUDAPEST, Hungary (-?)-Tens
of thousands of demonstrating
Hungarians pushed into Stalin
Square yesterday shouting "Rus-
kies, Russians go home" and
"Down with Geroe" Hungary's
Communist party chief.
Secret police fired shots into a
crowd, estimated at around 100,000
persons near Budapest's broad-
casting station. One eyewitness
said one man waskilled.
Stalin Statue
The crowd tried unsuccessfully
to pull down a 26-foot statue of
Stalin, then managed to haul
down a huge Red star on top of a
Trade Union Building facing the
statue.
Their demonstration came after
Ernoe Geroe, successor to Matyas
Rakosi as chief of the Hungarian
Communist party, made a surprise
broadcast calling lies any rumors
that Hungary wants to loosen its
ties with the Soviet Union.
Democratization
He promised "democratization"
will continue in Hungary, adding
that "numerous social and eco-
nomic problems still hatre to be re-
examined" especially in agricul-
ture. Although he said collectivi-
zation is "the only correct road,"
he pledged peasants would not be
forced to join collective farms.
One big Budapest demonstration
was advertised as a gesture of
"sympathy and solidarity" with
the Poles, who ousted Stalinist-
elements from Poland's Commun-
ist party leadership Sunday.
With demonstrators shouting for
free elections and freedom of the
press, the rally turned into a mass
demand for a similar Hungarian
"declaration of independence"
from Moscow control.
Government Reforms
Before these outbursts developed,
the Hungarian Communist party
leadership had promised govern-
ment reforms looking toward a
"new leadership, democratically
elected," but' begged the country
to be patient.
Budapest students warned several
days ago they would stage street
demonstrations unless the Com-
munist government complied with-
in 14 days with demands for more
freedom and improved living con-
ditions for the whole country.
Nixon Slams
Stevenson's
H-Bomb Idea

Nixon during the last four years.
Campbell and Miller, who are
campaigns and voters' reasons
for their choices, stressed the im-
portance of images voters develop
about parties and candidates dur-
ing the years.
"Voters just tend to discount
the attempt at new image making
that's attempted during cam-
paigns," Miller observed.
After three and a half years of
avoiding personal attacks on Ei-
senhower, the Democrats don't
.have time enough to sell the pic-
ture showing him strongly at-
tached to the Republican Party
and its policies, Prof. Miller said.
More Important
The candidates and the party
will be more important this elec-
tion, Prof. Campbell predicted,
after categorizing the electorate
into four groups.
The largest group, he said, is
the "hard core" party follower.
Also, there are the "candidate
voters" the "issue voters", and the
apathetic voters who have little
interest but go to the polls be-
cause of pressure, Prof. Campbell
said.
Campaigning efforts to win
voters on issues were generally
discounted by the two researchers.
Two thirds of the voters make up
their minds when the candidates
are chosen at conventions, they
said.
Last Two Weeks
However, approximately ten per
cent of the electorate waits until
the last two weeks before elec-
tion before making a decision,
Campbell said.
The problem is finding out how
they will divide, for in 1948 they
divided two to one in favor of
Truman and "slightly embar-
rassed" the polsters, he recalled.

'No Sweat' for Gomberg
Already, Gus Ginter, '57E, president of Gomberg; winner of last

for his team.
"They'll be too wet to sweat," was the reply of Taylor's President
Richard Zern, '57. "Gomberg may be known for its athletic 'prowess''
but Taylor is famed for its social programs, and we're planning a
major event-the Gomberg Swim Party."
"Ridiculous," Ginter snorted. "We're a house of action, not of:
