Red Strength Increasing
In Indian Government

There is a good possibility that
the Communists might overthrow
the Indian government in a few
years, contends Pakistan student
Azhar Ali Khan.
A journalism major, Ali Khan
said that the Communist Party in
India is "fairly strong and getting
stronger." He pointed out that the
Communists already have repre-
sentatives in the Indian parlia-
He attributed the spread of
Communism to wide-spread unem-
ployment and poverty. "India is
making a positive contribution to
Communism by spending 50 per
cent of her budget on defense. It
is thereby unable to effectively
combat poverty, illiteracy, sickness,
and unemployment as vigorously
as it should."
Ali Khan declared that India
will be operating in a vacuum
when Nehru leaves the political
scene. "Nehru has no leader to
succeed him. He appears to be the

Pakistan has suggested that the
two countries enter into negotia-
tions to settle their disputes. If
'these negotiations fail, a mediator
would be brought in, and if neces-
sary, an arbitrator with his deci-
sion standing as binding.
Pakistan offered to sign a no-
war pact with India on the basis of
this proposal, Ali Khan said, but
India refused.
Dental Trio
'U' Research
A , University dental research
team composed of Doctors James
K. Avery, Emmett R. Costich and
James R. Hayward of the School
of Dentistry is currently conduct-
ing experimentation on trans-
planting human teeth.
The greatest successes in tooth
transplantation have been accom-
plished using the teeth of teen-
agers and young adults, Dr. Cos-
tich explained.
Tooth transplantation is more
than a speculation. It has been
completed with success in numerJ
ous cases and is a source of inves-
tigation in dental schools through-
out the country.
This form of dental alteration is
not new. The practice has been
carried out in a crude way since
the days of the Romans, when
soldiers were obliged to relinquish
their teeth to superior officers.
Negro slaves also gave up teeth to
their masters prior to their eman-
Research Goal
The goal of the researchers is to
learn why some of the transplants
Hamsters, which have molars
quite similar in structure to the4
four-cusped human type, are val-
ued in this experimentation.
"Reaction to transplantation in
Hamsters is, as near as we can tell,
similar to that in humans," Dr.
Costich said. He added that "by
using the hamsters, we hope to get,
leads to relate to human beings."I
Because of the lack of volunteers;
who could be helped by transplan-
tation and a public uninformed of1
the opportunity available, the ex-
periments have largely been con-
ducted on hamsters.
In the human transplants per-
formed by the dentists, the resultst
have often been encouraging.
Young teeth are particularlyr
adaptable to transplantation, Dr.t
Costich explained.-
Main Problem
The main problem in transplan- i
tation is getting the teeth at theI
proper stage of development, be-r
fore they have developed their own
blood supplies from main vessels,
he added.t
The third molars, or "wisdom"I
teeth, are at the proper stage of
development for transplantationx
in college students and could pro-s
vide a great deal of insight intog
the phenomenon of transplanta-
tion, Dr. Costich declared.-

Anti-West Statements
The anti-West statements by
Indian leaders is effectively aiding
the spread of Communism. Ali
Khan said. He noted that Nehru
always gives anti-West speeches
and never criticizes the Communist
imperialism. "Most of the people
in India are ignorant and listen
only to what their leaders have to
say," he explained.
Ali Khan declared that their
foreign policy is based on no speci-
fic ideal. He said India does what
is most profitable for them and is
not guided by any moral princi-
"Her foreign policy is contradic-
tory and whimsical," Ali Khan as-
serted. They preach peace but
practice war. They-protest about
human rights and self-determina-
tion but violate the same~ rights in
Kashmir. He noted that Kash-
mir's leader, Sheikh Abdullah, was
jailed four years ago without any
grounds or trial.

What is modern music?
Modern music is that which is
being written today, in 1956, ac-
cording to Ross Lee Finney, com-
poser in residence.
"There is always the danger of
considering art as something tra-
ditional and in the past," he warn-
ed. "Contemporary music is art,
because it carries on the great cul-
tural stream at the present time.
"As far as what kind of music
is modern, it is impossible to
classify or categorize. One can
no more conceive of modern cul-
ture without jazz or hymns, than
without so-called serious music.
"I must stress that the modern
composer is one who reflects the
feelings and attitudes of life in
"The artist owes it to himself
to feel the impact of his age. He
must be able to project these con-
Cannot Judge Music
"I have the feeling," he declared,
"that one can't judge modern
music now-while it is being writ-
ten. The composer shouldn't be
concerned with whether his music
will last. It is up to him to ex-
press the things he has to say,
sincerely, and let history judge.
"One can see what music ex-
presses by comparing its EuropeanI
and American counterparts. Euro-
pean music expresses more lei-
surely tempo of living. American
music reflects our high speed and
"In this way, one can tell if
music will last. If the tempo of our
times is appealing to future gen-
erations, then our music will be
durable. There are many periods
in our history when the pace of
living is not appealing, and its
music was not forgotten.
"I don't think it's possible," he
added, "to write music today in
the tempos of the past. Our own
personalities creep in and spoil it.
"It is not necessarily escapist to
prefer older music unless the per-
son is completely unwilling to live
in our time. Being everlastingly
concerned with out own time takes
too much energy, and is often too

tiring. It is relaxing to vary the
diet of music.
Lack of Continuity
"The thing that distressed many
people about modern music," he
went on, "is its lack of continuity,
not its dissonance." There are
two kinds of people who listen to
music: There are those whose
minds are closed, even at the age
of 18.
TU' Student
Finds Crime
Does Not Pay%1
"Crime does not pay" a Univer-
sity student learned the hard way
Iwhen he was apprehended by Ann
Arbor police while attempting to
steal clothing and groceries from
a parked car.

year-old student from Traverse
City resides in an apartment at
717 E. University Ave.
Stricker admitted the attempted
theft of the sundry items which
included two pairs of trousers, a
corduroy shirt, two one-pound
containers of coffee, three grape-
fruit, a bag of marshmallows, two
pairs of eyeglasses, a notebook, and
a can of cleaning spray.
Stricker , was charged with
breaking and entering the car,
registered to Jessie E. Thornton of
1427 Broadway in a warrant served

Stopping on their 90-day tour of

and related activities, arrived last
Saturday to see the homecoming
"We regret you lost the game,"
Shigematsu said, "but it was quite
a pleasure to come to the stadium
to see the game. I am very happy
to see what kind of student activity
flourishes here."
The presidents have been tour-

Ike-N ixon Win
Mock Election'
At South Quad
South Quadrangle residents gave
an overwhelming majority to
President Dwight Eisenhower in
a mock election Thursday evening.
Gubernatorial candidate Albert
Cobo won over incumbent Gover-
nor G. Mennen Williams in the
voting that drew 771! per cent of
the residents.
The vote was 701 for Eisenhower
to 232 for Stevenson, a three to
one margin. Cobo's margin was
467 to 321.
Quadrangle p r e si d e n t John
Mayne said the ballot was ar-
ranged in a manner that made it
possible for a student to vote for
the presidential and vice-presiden-
tial candidates of different parties.
Thus while Vice-President Rich-
ard Nixon defeated Estes Kefau-
ver 637-252, Mayne noted that
the Tennessee senator outdrew his
presidential running-mate by 20
