Faculty Senate.
Asks Stringency
Faculty Senate yesterday advised its Western Conference repre-
sentative to vote in such a way in Chicago Dec. 5 to make "as strin-'
gent as possible" the rules controlling "special pecuniary privileges"
to athletes.
Introduced by Prof. Robert Angell of the sociology department,
the motion further advised Prof. Marcus Plant of the Law School
and Conference representative to "work consistently and unceasingly
for an amateur code of athletics."
This motion and another supporting "the position which the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics has taken for several

Galens Drive Refusal
Reason for Meeting
The Board in Review will meet
Sunday morning to consider Stu-
dent Government Council's refusal
to permit Galens to hold a campus
bucket drive Dec. 7-8.
Dean of Men Walter B. Rea re-
quested the meeting after talking
yesterday to Bob Kretzschmar,
'57, president of the Senior Medi-
cal honorary. SGC's action came
Wednesday night after an hour
and a half discussion of Galens'
Kretzschmar appeared before
the Council to present Galens'
case. Because they did not have
the necessary time to contact fac-
ulty and alumni on whether they
should join with the unified Cam-
pus Chest Drive next spring, he
said, the Society felt it would be
unwise to abandon their annual
December campus drive.

Adams Will
Raise Sigma
Kappa Issue
The rough outlines of next
Wednesday's Student Government
Council meeting on Sigma Kappa
began to take shape yesterday,
with the sorority's anticipated
arguments yet to be made public.
SGS President Bill Adams,
'57BAd, predicted the issue,
would be introduced by a state-
ment of the question - "maybe a
motion" - by him as chairman
of the meeting.
The exact wording of the ques-
tion is "something we're all going
to work on" at a committee-of-
the-whole meeting on Sunday.
Adams indicated the Council
would be asked first for a "fact
determination" on whether the
local chapter of Sigma Kappa
stands in violation of University
regulations forbidding member-
ship restriction on racial and re-
ligious grounds by organizations
recognized after 1949, when the
regulations were adopted.
The question has been raised
a' as result of the suspension this
summer of Sigma Kappa locals at
Tufts and Cornell universities by
the sorority's national council of
five women. Both chapters had
pledged Negro women during
spring rushing.
The local sorority has denied,
through its president, Barbara
Busch, 57Ed, that it so restricts
r membership.
Adams revealed yesterday that
he has not heard from national
Sigma Kappa since an acknow-
ledgement earlier in themonth
V of an SGC notification that the
issue would be considered Wednes-
day. While he as yet has re-
ceived "no positive indication",
he said "everything so far has led
me to believe that thernational
would be represented at the meet-
ing," possibly by an attorney.
He said it "might be nice" if
the sorority made its position
known before hte coming meet-
ing, "although I don't know that
it's necessary.",
Miss Busch commented yester-
day she did not know whether the
national council would be repre-
sented "in person," but she said
its point of view would be repre-
sented "at least in letter." Wheth-
er the position would be made
public before the meeting "is up
to SGC."
She added that "every nation-
al has a lawyer" but that she did
not know whether Sigma Kappa's
would attend the meeting.
Miss Busch expressed "hopes"
that members of SGC would "use
their heads and make a wise de-
cision" on the sorority' status.

4years in favor of strictly amateur
intercollegiate athletics" was made
public by Prof. George McEwen of
the Engineering School, and sec-
retary of the Senate Advisory
This meeting of the Faculty
Senate was held before &i Confer-
ence get-together on Dec. 5 in
Chicago where legislation attempt-
ing to illegalize unearned aid to
athletes will be voted upon. Under
Regent bylaws, the Senate can
recommend policy to the Univer-
sity's athletic Board.
Faculty members indicated
the main issue of debate was how
fast to procede toward an amateur
code. Prof. John Kohl of the en-
gineer school and president of the
Senate, observed, "The Senate was
informed by Mr. Plant and Mr.
Crisler that the University would
work for reform within the Con-
ference rather than pull out."
Kohl remarked that haste by!
the University could result in the
loss of our leadership position
among the Conference Schools. He
thought the "equalization" plan,
if it granted athletic scholarships
on the basis of both need and aca-
demic ability would be a step in
the right direction.
He emphasized the importance
of enforcing the penalties of
equalization, one of which he said
was "disqualifying an athlete for-
ever from college- athletics if he
took money not authorized by the
McEwen reported there was
"some dissent" to the Angell mo-
tion. Prof. Eric Stockton of the
English department, said he ap-
proved of the Angel motion, but
added "some didn't think it was
strong enough; some thought it
didn't effectively prevent bid-
ding; some observed it was more
or less an approval of the status

OOPS, SLIPPERY PAVEMENT-University coed slips on ice on Ann Arbor sidewalk yesterday. Coed
was one of many who found local pavements slippery. Weather Bureau officials at Willow Run
Airport forecast snow flurries for today, clearing tomorrow, and snow flurries again Sunday and
Monday. Official forecast calls for temperatures three to six degrees below normal. Weatherman
said temperatures through the 15th of December would be below the seasonal norm. Yes, they said,
there will be more slippery pavements.

And President Eisenhower ap-
pealed, too, for generous public
support of a newly launched
American Red Cross drive for five
million dollars in emergency funds
for Hungarian relief.
The President voiced his appealI
in a statement announcing the
Red Cross campaign for supple-#
mental money.
Earlier he received a. telegram
from E. Roland Harriman, Red
Cross chairman, saying the inter-
national agency now is feeding
about 150,000 persons daily in
Hungary, and that more funds are
needed for such relief there as
well as for aid to refugees being
admitted to the United States.

'Noting Lost'
Because the C a m p u s C h e s t
Board intended to ask Galens to
man buckets and help with pub-
licity in the spring, Council Treas-
urer Lew Engman, '57, said, neith-
er the educational nor public re-
lations aspect of the drive would
be lost. The Society will still con-;
duct a city drive next week. j

U.S. Drops Hints of Oil
For Europe in Future
WASHINGTON (AP)-The State Department broadly hinted yes-
terday emergency oil supplies for Europe will begin flowing as soon
as Britain and France make a "definite statement" about plans to
pull their troops out of Egypt.
Top officials said such a statement, setting a public timetable for
troop withdrawals, would "have a bearing" on American readiness to
put an emergency plan into operation, to help relieve the European
shortage caused by the closing of the Suez Canal.
They expressed this view in commenting on a decision by British
Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd to put off until Monday an expected
formal announcement of Britain's

Mayor. Sets 'Brigadoon' Week
In Honor of MUSKET Showe
Mayor William E. Brown, Jr., has proclaimed next week "Briga-
doon" Week in Ann Arbor in honor of the new MUSKET show's first
In a proclamation issued yesterday, the mayor noted, "the men
and women of MUSKET have given unstintingly of their time and
talent to produce a polished pleasurable show."
"At first," MUSKET Publicity Chairman Tom Oates, '57E. ex-I
plained, "we tried to get the town to change the names of some of
the streets as a publicity gag. Wei

readiness to join France . n a
"phased withdrawal" of forces
from Egypt.-
Anticipating a satisfactory Brit-
ish pledge, final- arrangements
have been completed by govern-
ment agencies to trigger the emer-
gency oil arrangements which
would move 500,000 to 1,100,000
barrels daily to Europe.
A White House announcement
officially setting the plan in mo-
tion is ready, authorities said, to
reassure European allies of the
United States willingness to co-
operate in solving the mounting!
oil crisis.
Officials involved in the oil
arrangements said they expected
they would be invoked early next
week, presumably after Lloyd's
Monday announcement.

Move Final
Location of a $10,000,000 med-
ical-pharmaceutical iesearch cen-
ter on North Campus was assured
today when Parks, Davis & Co.
formally announced in Detroit
they will establish a division in
Ann Arbor.
Harry J. Loynd, Parke, Davis
president, said the company's
board of directors approved pur-
chase of a 50-acre tract of land
from the University at the junc-
tion of Plymouth Road and the
proposed US-23 east bypass.

Miller Call's
"The individual campaign
events as thrown together into the
whole presidential campaign,,
don't have nearly as much influ-
ence as many of us would like to
believe," Prof. Warren E. Miller,
of the political science depart-
ment, said last night.
Speaking before the second
Graduate Roundtable meeting of
the semester, Prof. Miller, in an-
alysis, limited the effect of presi-
dential campaigns to reactivating
and reaffirming attitudes already
held by voters.
These attitudes, he stated, are
formulated by the individual voter
as the result of a variety of needs.
Drawing evidence from data
gathered as research associate of
Survey Research Center, Prof.
Miller said, "I would doubt very
much that either the 1952 or 1956
campaigns had much effect to-
ward change,"
"There was almost no net
change as a result of campaign
activity in either election," he
Contrary to possibly common
opinion, Prof. Miller drew the con-
clusion that, "important as the
crisis in the Middle East may have
seemed to be, it didn't change
many votes."
"It also only served to support
already existant attitudes," he
continued. "Republicans thought
we needed a military man like
Eisenhower to cope with the situ-
ation. Democrats thought this was
the result of too great an involve-
ment in foreign affairs."
He offered this example in sup-
port of his contention that there
is little relationship between the
amount of publielty and pudlic
attention which an event receives
aind the final decision of the voter.

Against Iraq
Syria Tries to Stir
Middle East Tension
States said yesterday it would
view "with utmost gravity" any
threat to the territorial integrity
or political independence of Tur-
key, Pakistan, Iraq and Iran.
The State Department revealed
the American attitude in a state-
ment approved by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and Secre-
tary of State John Foster Dulles.
Top officials said the statement
was a warning designed to demon-
strate United States support for
the four countries allied in the
Baghdad Pact.
"The United States reaffirms its
support for the -collective efforts
of these nations to maintain their
Independence," the statement said.
"A threat to the territorial in-
tegrity or the political indepen-
dence of these members would be
viewed by the United States with
the utmost gravity."
Statement Timed
The statement was timed, ofti-
cials said, to make clear American
concern for the welfare of these
four countries at a time when the.
Baghdad alliance is being assailed
by other Arab leaders and Russia
for allegedly playing an upsetting
role in the Middle East.
Meanwhile, in Baghdad, Iraq's
Premier Nuri Said is reported
standing firm against a mounting
campaign aimed at stirring up
trouble in Iraq and discrediting
his government.
Syrian Clique
The controlling pro-Soviet army
clique in Syria and the Egyptian
government are believed sponsor-
ing the campaign.
Khalil Ibrahim, Iraqi informa-
tion director, declared the pre-
mier has not intention of quitting
or making changes in his cabinet
"for the time being."
Iraq .has accused Syria of wag-
ing a campaign of subversion
against 'the Nuri government.
Syria has charged Iraq with seek-
ing to undermine the governments
of both Syria and Jordan. Egyp-
tian President Ganial Abdel Nasser
is believed spurring the Syrians
To Enlarge
Plans for a year-around program
of instruction on the 700-acre site
of the University of Illinois Na-
tional Music Camp at Interlochen
have been announced.
The proposed National Arts Ac-
ademy, which is scheduled to open
in September, 1958, will offer a
complete program in all academic
subjects as well as the arts.
The program will emphasize in-
struction in music, .art, dance and
speech for approximately 300 su-
perior students at the junior and
senior high school level.
The academy will not interfere
with the specialized summer pro-
gram in music, art, drama and
dance which has been a feature of
the National Music Camp.
Students will be chosen on rec-
ommendations from schools on the
basis of exceptional academic
work, artistic interest and ability.
Tuition, room and board rates are
set for $200 a year, however
Maddy explained this cost will de-

crease as scholarship programs are
developed. .
