ganization said there was little
likehood of any quick agreement
with the government of Janos Ka-
dar, the Soviet-supported Premier.
Kadar's speech Monday night
"did not serve the interests of the
Hungarian people and it hinders a
peaceful solution," a resolution
passed by the council declared.
* The council represents the capi-
tal's workers.
Unpardonable Crime
Kadar declared that former Pre-
mier Imre Nagy and his govern-
ment "committed an unpardon-
able crime against the Hungarian
nation" by failing to take action
"against the counterrevolution."
Kadar contended that Fascists
and reactionaries gained control
of the Hungarian revolution short-
ly before Russian military might
moved in on Nov. 4.
The workers have been demand-
ing that Nagy be returned to pow-
er in place of Kadar and that the
Russians withdraw from Hungary.
The workers said they felt Ka-
dar's definition of a "counterrevo-
lutionary" could "also include us."

Radio Budapest said that work-
ers had been working in the urani-
um mines of Koevagoszolloes in
the Mecsek Mountains for a week
although not much actual mining
had been done yet. Installations in
the mines were not damaged, the

He also arranged to review the
tense international situation at a

A White Housp statement ap-

traditional friends and allies are
those arising from a particular
international incident" -- British
and French military action in
Egypt, and this country's refusal'
to back that action.
But the statement said further:
"These differences in no way
should be construed as a weaken-

To Choose
Plan for Aid
The Western Conference will
convene Dec. 5 in Chicago to de-
cide between the present drift in
Conference policy toward aid to
athletes and a proposed "equali-
zation" plan, University Director
of Physical Education and Ath-
letics, Herbert O. Crisler disclosed
"Equalization," Crisler explain-
ed, is a device "where the justifi-
cation of unearned aid to athletes
would be on the basis of need." If
"equalization" is adopted by the
Conference, athletes would then
be subsidized the difference be-
tween their individual financial
means and the cost of their par-
ticular education.,
College Scholarship Service at
Princeton University would as-
sess each athlete's needs and de-
termine the amount of aid re-
ceived, Crisler noted.
The Service now makes such de-
cisions for many schools regard-
ing aid to non-athlete individuals,
he mentioned.
If "equalization" is approved by
the representatives to the Chicago
meeting, there will be a 60-day
lapse for official ratification by
the Conference schools.
"If one or more members vote
against the proposal then," Cris-
ley clarified, "we postpone final
action until our March meeting
where a majority vote will make it
Monday, Crisler told a raculty
Senate meeting he would vote for
"equalization" at the Conference
meeting and explained why.
Prof. John C. Kohl of the en-
gineer school and chairman of the
Faculty Senate, reported that a
motion was tabled commending
Crisler and Prof. Marcus L. Plant
of the Law School and the Uni-
versity's other representative to
the Conference for their work in
the athletie scholarship area.
University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher told the Senate he would
make every effort to schedule an-
other meeting of the group before
the Dec. 5, Conference get-to-
gether, Kohl said.
Crisler said he had "no idea" of
what further action the Senate
may~take before Dec. 5, and added,
"The Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics at all times
will consider any recommenda-
tions of the Faculty Sen'atd."
Panel Discussion
A panel of four will discuss "Dis-
crimination in Ann Arbor" during
a meeting of the Young Demo-
crats at 8 p.m. today in the League.

Parking Plan
A plan for student parking
facilities will be presented to Stu-
dent Government Council today.
President Bill Adams, '57BAd,
will give a. parking report, pre-
pared by Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs James A. Lewis.
Appointments to chairmanships
of the seven standing council
committees will be announced by
Vice-President Joe Collins, '58.
The committees are Campus Af-
fairs, Finance, 'Education and
Social Welfare, National and
International Affairs, Student Re-
presentation, Coordinating and
Counseling and Public Relations.
Also on the agenda is a motion
to study the University academic
calendar. The calendar has met
with student and faculty disap-
proval because of shortened vaca-
tion periods. Last spring, the
Council requested Assistant to the
President Erich A. Walter to set
up a committee to study the cal-
endar. At its first meeting early
this month, the committee was
dissolved until the calendar had
been in effect for at least three
Appointments to the SGC Eval-
uation Committee will be up for
Council approval. The Evaluation
Committee, composed of students,
administration and faculty mem-
bers will present recommendations
to the Regents in the spring, when
SGC's two-year trial period is at
an end.'

Hope To Shed Light
He was quick to add, however,
that ". ..part of the truth about
the case may have been withheld
and I hope to shed some light on it
at the inquest."
Inquest into the Oct. 22 Lillard
death will be held at 9 a.m. today
in courtrooms of the County Build-
Dr. Edwin C. Ganzhorn, county
coroner, said 40 witnesses, "every-
body who had anything to do with
the case or 'knows anything about
it," have been subpoenaed and will
appear at the inquest.
Sterling, among those subpoena-
ed, stuck to his claim that "there
was a clothesline in there even at
the time this alleged suicide hap-
pened and I can prove it."
He said he would call on a wit-
ness today to back up his claim.
'No Truth To It'
Mrs. Clair Smith, acting matron
of the home, said last week "There
isn't a word of truth to it," and
Conlin indicated he "never saw a
clothesline there."
Sterling said "... .that rope was
in a room diagonally across the
hallway from Lillard's room."
Last week Sterling said he
found rope burns on Lillard's body.
Last night Ganzhorn said "I did
not find any rope burns and
neither did the undertaker."
Sterling also denied rumors
saying he would not appear at the
"I've made some statements
which may be proven false," he
said, "and I hope they give me a
chance to get up on my hind legs
and orate a bit."
Among those attending today's
inquest will be youths who were
inmates at the home the night of
the suicide, Ganzhorn said.
He also indicated former super-
intendent and matron Mr. and
Mrs. Morris Rubinstein will attend.
Pelvis Reaction
According to a local theatre
manager, attendance has been only
"slightly above normal" for Elvis
Presley's first movie, with the pa-
trons coming as much out of curi-
osity as anything else.
Only strong reaction comes when
Presley is shot, he said. "Every-
body cheers."

Sterling Alters Charge,
Says Suicide Possible
Dexter Township Supervisor John G. Sterling yesterday retracted
his charges of the past two weeks and said it could have been possible
for James Lillard to have committed suicide in the manner described
by Washtenaw County Juvenile Home officials.
Sterling said "the state police demonstrated pretty much to my
satisfaction that it would have been possible for ,a boy of his dimen-
sions to have hanged himself" by a sheet hem suspended from his
security room door hinge.
After an investigation last week, Sterling had claimed such a
hanging impossible.4

State Probe*
Starts Today
John Ferguson, an official of
the Saginaw office of the State
Social Welfare Department is
studying conditions at Washtenaw
County Juvenile Home this week.
Asked by County Probate Judge
John W. Conlin to study opera-
tions at the juvenile home and
make a recommendation as to how
the home should be run, Fergu-
son will start his probe today.
Everett Smith, supervisor of the
state's child welfare field services,
said a state investigator from out-
side Washtenaw County was sent
in order to obtain "a more objec-
tive investigation."
County Juvenile Home is
plagued by an employe shortage.
Home's supervisor and matron,
Mr. and Mrs. Morris Rubenstein
resigned late this summer, and
Mrs. Risha Sayles, case worker at
the Home, resigned this month.
Conlin said he favors a 'round
the clock staff.
He indicated a resident super-
visor and matron, preferably a
married couple, in addition to a
director, would be desirable.
He has also asked for a probe by
the National Association of Pa-
role and Probation. .
Conlin said no date was set for
the NAPP investigation.
Doubt Arises
SGC Forum
Confusion has arisen over
whether Student Government
Council will hold a forum to dis-
cuss Sigma Kappa.
According to SGC President Bill
Adams, '57BAd, the forum was
intended to be an informative pro-
gram in conjunction with a ques-
tion period. Panel members Adams,
Vice-President Joe Collins, '58,
Panhellenic President Carol de
Bruin, '57, and Daily Editor Dick
Snyder, 57, were to present facts
relevant to the case.
Miss de Bruin said last night
she felt the subject was ill-timed
and the four panel members
should not be expected to give
personal opinions or judgements
since they are not yet in posses-
sion of all the facts. "I feel that
discussion at this point, without
all information, would be very un-
wise. Discussion of this sort will
get into all sorts of emotional
controversy and surmise," she said.
Collins and Ron Shorr, '57E, will
meet with Dean of Women Debor-
ah Bacon today to discuss the
forum plan. Dean Bacon has re-
portedly been opposed to a Sigma
Kappa forum because she feels it
would go from fact presentation
to an -emotional opinion session
and also that it would be con-
strued as pre-judgement on the
Council's part.
Originally, the forum, SOC's
first, was to have been. given to-

Blue Cross,
Agency Talk
Question of Payment
Not Answered Yet;
Plan Saves Money
A blanket hospitalization insur-
ance plan for students is being
investigated before its final draft-
ing by University officials, Dr.
Morley B. Beckett, director of
Health Service, revealed yester-
Defining the plan as "insurance,
for all students covering hospital-
ization for accidents and illness",
Beckett explained that progress
is now in the "nvestigative" stage
Blue Cross and the Detroit In-
surance Agency have been con-
sulted, he remarked. The Agency
is an insurance brokerage firm
and is soliciting premium-rate
bids from several insurance or
ganizations for the University.
At Other Colleges
Hospitalization arrangements at
other colleges are "growing like
wildfire" according to Beckett,
and several of these plans have
been investigated.
"Per-studet premiums at these
schools", Beckett noted, "have
varied from seven to 15 dollars a
year depending on the coverage
extended." He said no considera-
tion has been given yet as to how
the cost would be borne if a plan
were adopted here.
Beckett noted "25-30 dollars" a
year Is now alloted to Health Ser-
vice per student. Part of this mon-
ey is presently used to subsidize
students who incur hospitaliza-
tion expenses at University Hospi-
tal, for "emergency" treatment.
Hospitalization would supple-
ment present Health Service "out-
patient" work, Beckett explained.
Present Arrangements
The Health Service head ob-
served, "Under present arrange-
ments many students put opera-
tions and treatment off until their
condition reaches emergency pro-
portions and only then can the
University help them financially
and still many students can't bear
their share of the financial load."
Aren't most students already
covered by adequate hospitaliza-
tion insurance plans, either of
their own or their parents? "Pos-
sibly", Beckett said, but added,
"Of course, students who suffer
from present arrangements aren't
in the majority."
Beckett emphasized, "We are
now thinking in terms of a blan-
ket coverage for the student body,
not an optional one." He explained
the University may offer optional
coverage for the children of stu-
dent parents and for the student's
activities away from campus -
during Christmas, Spring and
Summer vacations.
Coverage would be terminated
upon a student's graduation.

11am Dinmer
In Alice Lloyd
As a protest against the serving
of pork without substitutes, ap-
proximately 20 women walked out
of a "sit-down" dinner at Klein-
stueck house, Alice Lloyd Hall
The Orthodox Jewish religion
prohibits the eating of pork.
The women claimed they had
repeatedly asked for, substitutes

for such meals without results.
One person explained, "If they

shouldn't offer us substitutes
when they serve pork."

Technic Gets Top Honors as Engineer Magazine

Recently named the country's "Best All-around College Engineer-
ing Magazine," the Michigan Technic begins sale of its November
issue today.
The Technic received the 1955-56 rating from the Engineering
College Magazines Association at its annual convention held this
month at the University of Arkansas.
Described as the "only slick paper professional type format
magazine on campus" by Editor-in-Chief Sheldon Levin, '57E, the
Technic is celebrating its 75th year of publication.
Proudly nodding towards the gold plaque and the past awards
adorning the walls of the office in East Engineering Building, Levin
said the magazine's major efforts last year were in improving layout
and story content.
Color Gets Eye Appeal
"We utilize color on the inside pages, which makes a great- deal
of difference in eye appeal," the editor said. He also cited the
presentation of special issues last year, about automobiles, the Inter-
national Geophysical Year, and automation, as features that made
the magazine unique.
"Also, we've tried to present articles of timely and close interest
to engineers on camnus. such as descriptions last year of the wind
