President Faces
Sanctions Hurdle
Democrats, Sen. Knowland Oppose
Any Economic Pressure On Israel
WASHINGTON (R)-President Dwight D. Eisenhower sped back
from a Georgia vacation yesterday to find himself and his adminis-
tration caught in a terrific squeeze on the issue of sanctions for Is-
On one side was an increasing body of congressional opinion
against punishing Israel 'for her refusal to withdraw from Egyptian
territory wtihout nonaggression guarantees.
On the other side, the Arab world - which the United States
has been wooing in an attempt to block Communist expansion in th*
Middle East - was crying for United Nations economic sanctions if
Israel doesn't pull out.
Two Developments
There were two major developments in the squeeze yesterday:
1) A unanimous vote by the Democratic Policy Committee in
the Senate against sanctions. Senator William F. Knowland of
California, the Republican leader,

World Needs'
New Goals.,
Ward Says
Associate Editor of the London
Economist Barbara Ward last
night called for disarmament, "not
as an afterthoight, but as a foun-
dation of world order," to be the
object of our diplomatic aims.
"The idea of the total sufficiency
of our own nations is as strong as
the belief of our own ego," she,
warned. "It is the stumbling block
of all our lives."
In a. clipped stacatto style, the
sixth Lecture Series speaker called
for international inspection of
waterways, "even the Panama
Canal," as proof that the United
State's declarations are more than
lip service to compromise.
Concepts 'Tattered'
The British economist chal-
lenged the validity of several con-
cepts which "after the events of
last autumnn are .. every single
one a bit tattered at the edges.",
oWe must break away from the
ideal of a single, Moscow-control-
led bloc of Communist states, she
said, "and recognize a new factor
of plural Communist powers, less
likely to be directed from Moscow."
Harvard's visiting lecturer be-
lieves that it is "nonsense" that
the China of 1980-bloated with a
population of a billion-will be
controlled by the Kremlin.
Graer Danger to USS

and other members of his party,
already have expressed opposi-
tion to sanctions.
2) A declaration by Foreign
Minister Charles Malik of Leba-
non that sanctions would be de-
manded in the UN tomorrow and
he hoped the United States would
support the move.
Malik spent an hour with Assis-
tant Secretary of State William
Rountree going over the Arab po-
sition. Afterwards he told re-
"In the opinion of the whole
Arab world, and indeed of the
whole world, Israel must with-
draw unconditionally."
Dulles Waits
President{ Eisenhower went di-
rectly from the airport to the
White House to grapple with the
multiplying Middle Eastern prob-
lems. Waiting for him there was
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles, who earlier in the day had
given Israel assurances that the
United States considers the Gulf
of Aqaba is an international wa-
The Democratic decision on
sanctions was announced in the
Senate by Majority Leader Lyn-
don Johnson of Texas. He said
the policy committee voted to ask
that the U.S. delegation to the
UN oppose any move to impose
economic penalties on Israel,
while other nations which have
ignored UN orders go unpunished.
Secretary Dulles discussed the
Gulf of Aqaba at his news con-
ference. Since it is an interna-
tional waterway, he said, Egypt
has no right to interfere with the
innocent passage of Israeli ships,
American vessels or those of oth-
er nations.

LANSING-University President
Harlan Hatcher yesterday hinted
to the Senate AppropriationshCom-
mittee that the self-liquidating
system of residence halls may have
outlived its usefulness.
"I think we're going to have to
do more than we have in the area
of aid to housing," Hatcher told
the legislators.
Otherwise, the University may
have to reject students "because
they can't find a place to live."
He suggested more explicit ideas
may come later in deliberations on
this year's budget.
Hatcher cited support which
Maine, among other states, has
recently given to college housing.
His remarks came as part of
discussion on selection of Univer-
sity students. Hatcher startled leg-
islators with a statement that one-
half to two-thirds of "qualified"
high-school students are not going
to college.
"The thing we musn't let hap-
pen is let selection be on the basis
of economic factors," he concluded,
citing such factors as the major
drawback for most qualified stu-
dents who do not go to college.
From this standpoint Hatcher
praised the University's scholar-
ship program and made another
plea for low tuition rates. And he
also asked that housing not be
allowed to join economic factors
as an obstacle to selection of stu-
dents on the basis of academic
SGC To Fill Post

pointments are on the agenda for

LAGGING FEES-State Sen. Elmer Porter bases arguments for increased student fees on this chart, which shows a negligible increase
in tuition payments in the face of greatly increased appropriations and enrollments. University administrators reply that 1947, the base
year for the chart's comparisons, was one of abnormally high fees due to the influx of veterans heavily subsidized by the federal government.
Figures are for all state-supported colleges except Wayne State University.

IFC Seeks
From Taxes
In an effort to gain tax exemp-
tion for affiliate groups under the
Michigan Employment Security
Act, Inter-fraternity Council has
had a legislative amendment sub-
mitted to committees of the state
State Senator Lewis G. Christ-
man (R-Ann Arbor) presented
the amendment to the Senate last
week, Assistant Dean of Men Wil-
liam Cross said.
Under present conditions fra-
ternities and sororities are liable
to a tax on all their employees.
William Conlin, an Ann Arbor
lawyer working with the Council,
explained that prior to 1956, fra-
ternities and sororities were
exempt from state tax.
The present act exempts "do-
mestic service in a private home,"
and the proposed amendment
calls for the addition of "local
college club or local chapter of a
college fraternity or sorority."
Conlin said the proposal has
been referred to committee study,
and should come before the Sen-
ate in the near future.
He estimated the tax would ini-
tially cost each fraternity from
$250 to $300 a year and later al-
most twice as much.

Plan Failure
Gets Varied-
Ann Arbor's defeated capital
improvements plan drew varied
comments yesterday from city of-
ficials and a prospective municipal
Most outspoken in his comments
was Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld,
Democratic candidate for mayor,
who said, "It appears that these
proposals were defeated because
of inadequate leadership by the
Mayor and City Council."
Raymond C. Eastman, City Plan-
ning director, seemed to be un-
concerned over the defeat of the
three million dollar bond issue
program. When asked what he
thought was the reason for the
failure of the bond issues at the
polls he answered, "I wouldn't
have any idea. They just didn't
want them, I guess."
Moore Comments
Prof. Arthur D. Moore, past City
Council president, said the failure
of the bond issues calls for edu-
cation of the public on the bene-
fits of capital improvements. Com-
menting on Prof. Eldersvelds'
judgment, he said shortly, "He
doesn't know enough about it."
City Administrator Guy C. Lar-
corn said it is up to the Council to
decide on any further action along
the capital improvement line.
There are ways open to the
Council that would allow certain
of the proposed bond issues to be
implemented despite voter un-
popularity. For example, storm
sewers could be provided through
special assessments.
'Too Early'
Councilman Charles W. Joiner
felt it is too early to see the long
range effects of the bond issue
defeat and the program, he said,
will have to be completely re-ex-
amined by the planning commis-

Fee Raises
Don't Match
State Funds
Porter Says State
Subsidies May Hurt
Smaller Schools
Special to The Daily
LANSING-University President
Harlan Hatcher told legislators
yesterday the state should be will-
ing to pay more to support "one
of the nine or ten top universities
in the world."
Members of the Senate Appro-
priations Committee told him they
thought the students should pe
willing to do likewise,
If the students are receiving a
"superior product," Sen. Clarence
Graebner (R-Saginaw) argued,,
"their earning capacity is being
increased and they should be will-
ing to pay more."
Spirited But Friendly
After a day of spirited but
friendly hearings on the Univer-
sity's operating budget requests of
$34,000,000, committee chairman
Sen. Elmer Porter (R-Blissfield)
told The Daily student fees have
not kept pace with state- educa-
tional appropriations.
Sen. Porter produced a chart to
back up his contention that there
has been almost no increase in
statewide student fees despite
tripling of legislative appropria-
tions. Copies are to be given to
every member of the legislature.,
State-subsidized schools with
their low tuition rates may be
driving smaller, privately owned
colleges out of business, Sen. Por-
ter commented.
Part of the chairman's agru-
ment was anticipated in the hear-
ings by University Vice-President
for Financial Affairs Wilbur Pier-
pont, who presented a chart of his
own to the committee, this one
showing that fees now contribute
20 per cent of the costs of the Uni-
versity. They contributed 19 per
cent in 1920.
"Over a period of time fees have
been increased to maintain about
the same proportion to total costs,"
Vice-President Pierpont argued.
1948 Fees a Record
Fees in 1948 contributed to a
record high of 42 per cent of op-
erating costs, he pointed out, but
attributed this to peak veterans
enrollments under the GI Bill of
Rights. "It was essentially a fed-
eral government contribution,"
with Congress appropriating $500
per veteran student to the Univer-
Arguing from the same facts,
Vice President and Dean of Fac-
ulties Marvin Niehuss said later
that 1947, which Porter's chart
uses as a base year, was."not a
normal situation for the fee-ost
relationship" throughout Michigan
Vice-PresidentNiehuss said he
could see "no danger at al' of
state-supported schools bankrupt-
ing Michigan's private colleges.
"The most expensive schools in
the country turn away the highest
number of students."
100,000 More
Vice-President Niehuss' presen-
tation to the committee, in which
he argued for higher faculty sal-
aries, was premised on an expected

enrollment increase for Michigan
colleges of 100,000 over the next
ten years. At present ratios, he
contended, 8,000 new college tech.
ers and about 4,000 replacements
would be needed.
But the state will grant only
5,000 doctorate degrees during the
period if present rates continue.
During the hearings much inter-
change centered over out-of-state
students, who constitute about
one-third of the University's en-
rollment. Legislators questioned
again and again the justification
for support df over $1,000 per non-
resident student.
Niehuss warned against raising
out-of-state tuition so high as to
lose those students as a source of
revenue and defended their nres-
