Ben-Gurion Seeks Support for Withdrawa

Hecklers Drown
Pleas in Session
Speech Touches off Huge Uproar;
Asks Parliament Vote of Confidence
JERUSALEM (P) - Under taunts and badgering at an uproarious
session last night, Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion asked Parlia-
ment to support his decision to pull Israeli troops out of Egypt and
Hecklers drowned out his words at times as he wearily defended
his withdrawal decision. He is seeking a vote of confidence.
Biggest Uproar
When Ben-Gurion sat down, the opposition touched off the big-
gest uproar ever heard in the Israeli Parliament. It took the speak-
er five minutes to restore order.
Ben-Gurion declared the aim of the October invasion was deliv-
erance of Israel from danger of Arab attack, not conquest.
He implied that goal was ach-

Government Council will send out
letters today advising National

Although Dean of Women Deb-

Student Affairs James A. Lewis

in the letter, SGC President Joe
Collins, '58, said the letters would

various recommendations for ac-

Committee. "The majority of the
recommendations involve a period
of 'grace'," the letter notes.
The letter had been examined
and altered slightly before it was
approved at last week's SGC meet-
Collins said that any disagree-

concern was with whether the let-

action and expressions.
~ Mayor Brown
By Eldersveld
Samuel J. Eldersveld, Democratic
candidate for mayor of Ann Arbor,
sharply criticized Mayor William E.
Brown for his attack on City
Council Candidate Arthur Carpen-
Carpenter expressed the view
that Republican leadership on the
recent capital improvements issues
were inadequate. Brown replied
with a sharp attack on the pros-
pective council member.
Eldersveld, speaking to a group
of supporters, said that "Brown is
the kind of fellow we can expect
this from. He hasn't learned the
lessons cf democracy." He referred
to the role of the opposition in
criticizing the party in office.
The University political science
professor also reviewed the 12-
point Democratic platform, calling
it a "clear-cut, workable document

"I am keenly aware of the dan-
gers and drawbacks involved in
the settlement we have made," he
told Parliament.
UN Guarantees
While Israel did not receive the
United Nations guarantees of se-
curity against Arab attack that
were demanded, Ben-Gurion said:
"The President of the United
States has assumed a moral re-
sponsibility toward Israel and
many other nations have made
statements which involve a moral
With these assurances of sup-
port for maintainmg peace in the
Middle East, Ben-Gurion said, "I
do not hesitate to advise the
members of the Knesset (Parlia-
ment) and the people of Israel to
accept this settlement."
Opposition Motion
Today he faces the opposition's
motion of no-confidence. He is
expectedtowin out.
Four hours before he spoke,
speakers at a mass rally in this
old holy city acused him of sur-

South Quadrangle Council re-
solved last night they could "find
no justification" for the recent
dismissal of three quad residents,
after it had studied bean of Men

the expulsion.
The resolution concerns three
men, David Gumenick, '59, Jeffery
Mandel, '59, and Roger Gottfreid,
'59, who were asked to leave the
quad, after connection with a De-
troit newspaper article.
Best Judgement
Because the Council thought the
residence halls conference commit-
tee "did not use its best-judgement
in this case," the council requested
further cl irification of what "con-
stitutes an 'undesirable resident'."
Although recognizing s t o r i e s

papers were exaggerated, the reso-
lution says the men's statements
to the newspaper were "in no way

The resolution deplores the pun-

Finally, it questions the bypass

Religion Panel
Faculty Views
Each religion should be taught
at the University by believers of
that religion, Prof. George B. Har-
rison of the English department
claimed at a faculty-student panel
last night.
The panel discussed how religion
should be taught during a general
discussion of "What Happens to
God on the Campus?" held as part
of All-Campus Conference on Reli-
Specific Religions
Fred Trost, '57, Union executive
vice-president, said he believed
courses in specific religions taught
from the point of view of the par-
ticular religion had no place in a
state-supported university. He fa-
vored a course presenting a general
picture of religious knowledge, on
the ground that religion is an im-
portant intellectual discipline.
Daily City Editor Lee Marks, '57,
said religion is now taught in many
courses at the University, citing
as examples courses in Far Eastern
religions and the Italian Renais-
sance. He{referred to a statement
by Prof. Kenneth E. Boulding of
the economics department that le
"sneaked religion in sideways" in
economics courses.
Religious Belief
"You can't do more than this
without inculcating religious be-
lief," Marks said.
Jean Scruggs, '58, Assembly pres-
ident, suggested a course be taught
in comparative religion and offered
as a humanities elective. But Lau-
rence B. Slobodkin of the zoology
department said that religion "is
