MOSCOW W)-Soviet Premier
Nikolia Bulganin last night raised

mate United Nations efforts to
solve the Middle East crisis.
In n~otes to the prime ministers
of Britain, France and Israel, he
declared UN troops being sent to
police the Middle East zone of
conflict must not be stationed in
the Suez Canal zone.
Also he demanded Egypt be paid
by Britain, France and Israel for

Egypt already has insisted the
UN force be posted only on the
1949 Palestine armistice line be-
tween Israel and Egypt and the
British-French troops be pulled
out immediately.
Britain and France have stated
their troops will not be with
drawn from the canal zone until
they are replaced satisfactorily by
the UN forces.
The Soviet and Egyptian insis-
tence the international force be
sent to the frontier might slow
the British-French withdrawal
and still give Russia pretext to
send Soviet "volunteers" to Egypt.

messages to them in the Middle

He did not speak of possible So-

Joseph Rubinstein, psychology teaching fellow, claimed last
night Washtenaw County Juvenile Home is run by persons "who
can do little that is constructive for the children."
Rubinstein, son of Mr. and Mrs. Morris Rubinstein, former super-
intendent and matron of the home, said the children are in "incompe-
tent and irresponsible hands . . . this (is) a dangerous situation."
Rubinstein said he had informed the authorities concerned to
this effect before the suicide of James A. Lillard, inmate of the home.
This comment came after Dexter Township Supervisor John G.
Sterling testified before a Washtenaw County Board of Supervisors
meeting he didn't believe state-

Prof. Marvin Eisenberg of the

cited the teacher as the key to
liberalizing a curriculum at the
annual student-faculty literary
conference in the League.
Curriculum changes in the fields
of social science, natural science
and the humanities were discussed
by the five-man panel.
Speaking on "Can We Liberalize
the Literary College Curriculum?"
Prof. Eisenberg declared "the corej
of a teacher's knowledge, if pre-

munitive form, will liberalize a

Prof. Eisenberg warned any in-
ter-disciplinary course should be
taught at either upper graduate
or graduate levels where students
have already formed certain
frames of references.
Roger Harris, '59, remarked the
present literary college curriculum
concentrates on specialization and
compartmentization instead of
making a student feel he is part
of one body of learning.
He suggested students be given
certain required courses to begin
with, follow these by courses show-
ing how courses are related to one
another such as the consumer and
market research course of the psy-
chology department.
Prof. Robert C. Angell of the
sociology department said the
literary college is aiming at fewer
courses because "there are only a
limited number of teachers who
can teach these courses well.''
"Teachers who are interested in
interdepartmental courses should
be encouraged," Prof. Angell de-
Leslie Dietz, '58. criticized sur-
vey courses because of "their in-

Conlin Confirms
Nielsen, his statements confirm-
ed by County Probate Judge John
W. Conlin, said Lillard hanged
himself in his room by the hem
of a sheet.
Sterling said he and George P.
Smith, a sealer of weights and
measures, had used 100-pound
weights to test a sheet hem.
They reported the weights caused
the hem to rip.
Sterling thought marks on
Lillard's body "looked like rope
burns," and said he found a
clothesline in the room opposite
Claims No Clothesline
Mrs. Clair Smith, former cook,
now acting matron of the home,
said last night "There isn't any
truth to it. I don't even have a
clothesline to hang clothes on."
She said there had never been
a clothesline in the room indicated
by Sterling, and commented fur-
ther nothing had been taken out
of the rooms since the suicide.
Reached by telephone last night,
Sterling said "I've got absolute
proof, myself and another witness,

Nielsen, on a deer hunting trip,
couldn't be reached for comment.
Judge Conlin indicated he "never
saw a clothesline there."

feel that there has been any in-

the Juvenile Home.

An Egyptian Embassy spokes-
man in Moscow indicated Nasser
had not played that card yet, a
formal request for Soviet military
intervention by "volunteers."
But Egyptian spokesmen in
Moscow, at the United Nations in
New York, and in the Suez Canal
