mitted last August under federal
court order, but two have dropped
out,

, be pertinent to the question.
e Adams, however, said he feared
- open debate would lead to a "cir-
r cus" similar to debate last spring
on deferred sorority rushing.

Campus Affairs Chairman May-
nard Goldman moved that alum-
nae, legal advisers and delegated
representatives of Sigma Kappa
be allowed to speak at any time

the Council decided to defer dis-
cussion on the question until a
special meeting Sunday.

YOUNG DEMS-Gurney Pearsall, '57, president of the campus
NAACP, speaks at the Young Democrat's panel discussion on
racial discrimination in Ann Arbor.
.Local Racial Problems
Remain, Panel Says
By ALLAN STILLWAGON
Members of last night's panel discussion on discrimination in
Ann Arbor agreed that progress toward solution of racial problems is
sure, but slow.
Donald Pelz, study director for the University Survey Research
Center, reviewed those findings of the Ann Arbor Self Survey which
referred to Negro employment opportunities.
Pelz, who serves as administrative director of the survey on a
volunteer basis, repeated findings recently presented to the Institute
in Human Relations which showed that race was a substantial factor
in local employment opportunities.
Negroes Resigned
"Negroes seem to have resigned themselves in many cases to less
(desirable jobs," he continued.

Hatcher Calls
For Hungary
Aid Funds'
University faculty members will
receive letters soon suggesting
they contribute to a Hungarian
relief fund.
This drive grew out of a motion
passed by the Faculty Senate at
their Monday meeting.
Prof. George M. Mc Ewen of the
engineering English department.
and secretary of the Senate Ad-
visory Committee reported the
motion read as follows: "Where-
as recent developments in Hun-
gary have shocked all of civilized
humanity and whereas the Inter-
national Rescue Committee Inc.
has undertaken to assist Hun-
garian victims of suppression;
therefore be it resolved that this
Senate requests President Hatch-
er to send to each member of the
Faculty a reminder of the great
need which exists and to designate
some agency as depository for fi-
nancial contributions to the IRC."
Prof. George Piranian of the
mathematics department intro-
duced the motion and Prof. George
Katona of Survey Research spoke
in its behalf. Both men are for-
mer Hungarians.
Yesterday, University President
Harlan H. Hatcher sent a letter
to each department acknowledg-
ing their motion.

"There is evidence that Negro
children in the 14-17 year age
group have accepted the patterns
of adults.
They don't indicate that they
would really try for positions
which seem closed to the Negro."
Bob Marshall, a business repre-
sentative on the SGC Human Re-
lations board, called for a more
positive, forceful attack on local
problems.
"Problems are not being solved
fast enough," he maintained, "al-
though I am happy to say that
some things look better."
For instance, discrimination in
Ann Arbor's barber and beauty
shops is very definittely ending,
and this is an especially notable
gain."
Definite Gains
Gloria West, '58, a member of
the Human Relations Board, said
definite gains were being made by
that group.
She cited the Board's policy of
avoiding publicity as a major rea-
son for its success.
Gurney Pearsall, '57, president
of the Ann Arbor chapter of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People, re-
viewed the local history of the
NAACP.
Past Work
He recalled past work done in
connection with discrimination in
League houses and explained the
"Fairplay" sticker c a m p a i g n
which called upon local business
to demonstrate their willingness
to serve all races.

French Units
Leave Posts
In Mid-East
Delegate Promises
Further Withdrawal
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (A)-
France announced yesterday the
withdrawal of more troops from
Egypt and promised to pull out
additional units soon.
The United Nations police pa-
trol, meanwhile, slowly built up
strength to fill the gap.
"I am authorized to announce,"
French delegate Vincent Broustra
told the UN assembly, "that after
the arrival of the Norwegian com-
pany of the international, force,
the French command withdrew
from Port Said one company of
infantry and one naval commando
unit, and that it is prepared to
withdraw a new echelon after the
arrival of the Yugoslav detach-
ment." -
He gave no figures.
Earlier the French had made
an initial statement that they had
withdrawn about one-third of the
total number of troops they sent
to the combat area for the com-
bined invasion of Egypt with Brit-
ian.
The Norwegian unit referred to
by Broustra arrived in Port Said
a week ago. The main force of
the Yugoslav battalion is slated to
land later this week in Port Said.
In other developments in the
Middle East crisis, United Nations
Secretary General Dag Hammar-
skjold announced he expected to
have 4,100 UN troops in Egypt
within two weeks and Egypt's For-
eign Minister Mahmoud Fawzi
once more demanded the invaders
pay at least the material damage
they inflicted.
Invaders Leave
Fawzi demanded -the invaders
leave Egypt forthwith.
Britain and France were report-
ed in London to be resigned to
beginning a large-scale withdraw-
al in a few days.
Joint Judic
Petitions Due
Petitioning for five one-year
terms on Joint Judiciary Council
will close Dec. 6, according to
Chairman Mike McNerney, '57L.
Petitioning is open to all Uni-
versity students who have at least
60 hours of college credit.
Joint Judic hears individual and
group cases of University regula-
tions violations of an all-campus
nature, including driving and'

war."
Sabry said Egypt had postponed
acceptance of volunteers from
friendly countries for its armed
forces "because the United Na-
tions now is taking care of the
problem." He added:
Volunteer Problem
"However, the problem of vol-
unteers hangs on whether the UN
solves the present crisis in Egypt."
Sabry said Egypt had asked all
nations of the world for help and
some had shown, willingness toj
send volunteers.
Sabry denied Soviet offiers had
fought in the Egyptian army or
that there was Communist influ-
ence in Egypt.
No Foreign Elements
"Nonsense," he said of reports
about the Soviet officers. "We
shall not allow foreign elements in
our armed forces.
Concerning the infiltration of
Communists in Egypt, our policy is
clear' We will never throw our-
selves in anybody's arms.. ."
Talk Set On
Athletic Aid
Faculty Senate will reconvene
Monday's adjourned meeting at
4:15 p.m. today in the Rackham
Amphitheatre.
A motion tabled last Monday
commending Athletic Director H.
0. "Fritz" Crisler and Prof. Mar-
cus Plant of the Law School for
their work in the area of eco-
nomic aid to athletes will be
brought, to the floor again accord-
ing to Prof. John C. Kohl of the
engineering school and chairman
of the Senate.
At Monday's meeting Crisler and
Plant explained that they would
vote for an "equalization" plan of
financially assisting athletes at
the December 5 gathering of the
Western Conference in Chicago.
It is not clear whether the Sen-
ate is in agreement with Crisler's
position or not. Kohl hinted the
Senate may express opinion on the
matter, saying, "The Faculty Sen-
ate under Regent Bylaws can rec-
ommend policy to the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Ath-
letics."

REQUEST TO UN:
Egypt Asks Time Limit
For Allied Withdrawal)
CAIRO (/)-President Gamal Abdel Nasser's chief political ad-
viser, Ali Sbary, said yesterday Egypt has asked United Nations Sec-
retary General Dag Hammarskjold to fix a time limit for withdrawal
of British, French and Israeli troops from Egypt.
In an interview broadcast by the Egyptian state radio, Sabry said
Egypt made the request through Foreign Minister Mahmoud Fawzi.
Then Sabry added:
Invaders Ignore
"If the invaders ignore decisions of the UN Egypt can take many
steps which we cannot divulge now, but I cannot guarantee that
these steps will not lead to worldol

City Police
Claim Staff
Increasing
By WILLIAM HANEY
Ann Arbor police department
is slowly reaching full strength
for the first time since the mass
resignation of 11 officers Novem-
ber 20, 1955.
The budget given the police de-
partment by City Council last
July, increased the police staff'
personnel allotment from 77 to
81. After the November resigna-
tions the force was short 19 of-
ficers. The department now claims
a deficit of only eight policemen.
Two Policemen
However according to an esti-
mate which calls for one and one-
half to two policemen per 1,000
citizens, Ann Arbor police de-
partment is understaffed by at
least 31 men.
While the University is in ses-
sion Ann Arbor's population ex-
ceeds 75,000. Based on the esti-
mate of one and one-half to two
policemen per 1,000 citizens Ann
Arbor police staff would be 112
to 150.
The pressure created by resig-
nations necessitated the remain-
ing policemen to go on a 60-hour
week. City Council, concerned
over discontent in the police de-
partment with wages and lack
of overtime pay, called in a public
administration and finance con-
sultant to make a survey of sal-I
aries and worknig conditions.
On the recommendations of the
consultant, all policemen were
given a raise in salary, pay for
overtime, a longevity plan calling
for pay raises after ten years ser-
vice and a four-scale pay level
with provisions for pay raises for
the first 10 years with the depart-
ment.
"This, along with the $120 sal-
ary increase granted in Novem-
ber, was an incentive," Police
Chief Casper M. Enkemann said,
"and many applications were re-
ceived, not only from within the
state, but also from men outside
the state."
Main Problem
The main problems after the
mass resignation was, according to
Enkemann, " whether or not to
lower standards to fill vacancies.
Conferences between command
officers, the Police Commission
and the department's employees
resulted in the raising, rather
than the lowering of entrance
standards.
The department is now down to
a 44-hour work week and "we
hope to start the 40-hour week in
the near future," Enkemann said.

U.S. Blasts
Soviet Arms
Shipments
Syria Troop Move
On Lebanon Border
Reported by Ankara
By The Associated Press
Russian Foreign Minister Dmitri
T. Shepilov claimed late yesterday
he has "incontestable informa-
tion" that Britain, France, and
Israel plan to attack Syria, Egypt,
Lebanon, and other Near- Eastern
countries.
"The Soviet Union, on the other
hand, is determined to support
world peace," Shepilov added.
The statement was made while
Shepilov was stopping over in Co-
penhagen on his flight home from
the United Nations General As-
sembly in New York.
U.S. Accusation
The United States accused Rus-
sia yesterday of adding to Middle
East tension by shipping "sub-
stantial" amounts or arms to
Syria.
Concern over these weapons de-
liveries also has been expressed to
the Syrian government by the Am-
erican ambassador in Damascus,
the State Department reported.
The Syrian government, how-
ever, is now believed to be under
the control of a group of pro-
Soviet army officers. Reports from
Lebanon, Syria's neighbor to the
west, spoke of the likelihood of an
open coup by the Syrian army
clique to consolidate its position.
Washington Officials
Washington officials said more
than 30 million dollars worth of
Soviet weapons, including light
tanks, artillery, mortars, machine
guns, armored cars and munitions,
have been delivered to the last
year. British sources at the United
Nations furnished bigger figures.
They said the Soviet bloc had
shipped about 60 million dollars
worth of arms to Syria and about
400 million dollars worth to Egypt
up to Nov. 10.
White Statement
Lincoln White, State Depart-
ment press officer, said Russia
has made additional shipments to
Syria "since the Middle East
crisis."
White's comment contrasted re-
marks by White House Press Sec-
retary James C. Hagerty. Hagerty
reported at a news conference
about the same time that he be-
lieved international tension over
the Middle East "has been greatly
eased over the last two or three
weeks.'
Talking to reporters at Augusta,
Ga., where President Dwight D.
Eisenhower is vacationing, Hag-
erty disagreed with a reporter who
expressed the view that the Middle
East outlook had not improved.
Hagerty cited the cease-fire
gained by the UN in Egypt as well
as the movement of UN police
forces into the area as encourag-
ing signs.
Ike Dispatches
Goodwill Note
To Mollet
PARIS (')-President Dwight D.
Eisenhower has sent French Pre-
mier Guy Mollet a personal letter
reaffirming faith in French-
American friendship and the At-
lantic Alliance.
Diplomatic sources reported
yesterday as United States Am-
bassador C. Douglas Dillon pre-

pared to fly home today for con-
ferences on the differences be-
tween France and Britain on one
hand and the United States on the
other.
French and American sources
described the President's message
as "warm and cordial" but de-
clined to go into details. Dillon
delivered it late last week.
