New Mayor,
Council Split
on Proposal
Ann Arbor City Council meet-
ing last night brought a party line
split over Mayor Samuel J. Eld-
ersveld's proposal to appoint mem-
bers of six special committees.
Professor Charles W. Joiner,
third ward Republican, recom-
inended the six special committees
be re-examined and that more
time be given for such a task.
The split came over Joiner's
motion to return the proposal to
the working committee.
After the 8-3 vote Democrats
Pwyer, Denard and Eldrsveld for
the motion, Russell T. Burns, fifth
ward Rpublican, said that the vote
"doesn't reflect" on the mayor's
ability to make appointments.
The Council also learned that
the Attorney General's office in
Lansing has approved some tax
benefits for the Ann Arbor Tran-
sit Company. Among these were 50
cent license plates and a lower
gasoline purchase price for the
One of the committees in-
volved in the dispute was a pro-
posed University Relations com-
.mittee which would handle Uni-
versity-City relations in conjunc-
tion with Guy Larcom, City Ad-
ministrator, and which would also
assume the duties of the Special
Revenues Committee.
The other committees were the
Annexation, Rules, School Board
Relations; Human Relations and
the Bus Committee.
Burns, in his fifth year on the
Council, was unanimously re-
elected mayor pro-tem by the

or's veto power, the mayor pro-

Earns Hatcher's Praise
University President Harlan
Hatcher sad yesterday NYU would
be richer and the University poor-
er for Brandon's s w i t c h i n g
schools. Hatcher termed him "a
close friend and very able assis-
tant - the kind of man you like
to have around you."
A new director of university re-
lations should be chosen before
Brandon leaves, the President
said. He called the chances
"strong" that he will be chosen
from outside the present Univer-
sity administration, but "we have
nobody really in mind at the mo-
During Brandon's tenure as di-
rector several publications were
initiated or reactivated - the
University Record, a staff house
organ, the Letter to Alumni, which
goes to all former students whose
addresses are known, and the
Michigan Report, sent to parents
of undergraduates.

He was one of the organizers of
the Development Council and is
a member of its board of directors.
Since 1948 he has served on the
executive committee of the Insti-
tute of Social Research, and since
1951 as the President's represen-
tative to the Board in Control of
Student Publications and the
Board in Control of Intercollegi-
ate Athletics.
On accepting his new position
Brandon said it was offered to
him as a "genuine challenge."
NYU, he commented, "is the
nation's largest university located
in one city. Since that city is fore-
most as a public-relations and
communications center, I believe
it provides an unequalled oppor-
tunity in my professional field in
the next few years."
Expresses Regret4
He expressed regrets at leaving
the University and Ann Arbor. In
his nearly 12 years here, Brandon
said, "it has been a joy to serve
with my fellow officers and my
colleagues not only in university
public-relations, but in other
He said "the bringing together
of a very capable staff" was pro-
bably his "greatest long-range
contribution" to the University.
Daily Iowan
Regains Right
To Editorialize
The State University of Iowa's
Daily Iowan appears to be regain-
ing its editorial freedom after los-
ing it for five months.
Iowan editors last week startled
representatives of five midwestern
college newspapers meeting in
Madison, Wisconsin with the news
that several Iowan editorials had
been censored by supervisors from
the school's journalism depart-
The Iowan is published in con-
junction with the SUI school of
Most of the censored editorials
dealt with allocation of football
seats to students. Administration
action against the paper's edi-
torial freedom began with the cen-
sorship of an editorial criticizing
the shifting of the student section
400 seats toward the end zone to
make way for the state legislature.
But last Wednesday the Iowan
was permitted to run an editorial
explaining the censorship policies
and criticizing the University ad-
ministration for them. An editor's
note with the editorial described
its publication as marking a "def-

The deficiency bill was passed on
a voice vote and sent to the Senate,
which may act on it Tuesday.
Postmaster General Arthur E.
Summerfield has announced he

Post offices throughout the coun-
try were closed to the public Sat-
urday, and Saturday deliveries
suspended. Pickups from street
boxes were put on a Sunday basis
for the entire weekend. Post office
officials estimated about one mil-
lion dollars was saved in this way.
Monday mail deliveries to met-
ropolitan districts were cut to two
a day and window service at post
offices limited to eight and one-
half hours daily. Further curtail-

Sweden Call
Two Experts
Foreign Spies
STOCKHOLM, Sweden ()-A
legal expert of the Swedish Atom-
ic Energy Commission and a for-
mer navy draftsman were form-
ally charged yesterday with es-
pionage for "a foreign power" -
meaning Soviet Russia.
The indictment accused the nu-
clear lawyer, Robert F. Damstedt,
29 years old, and draftsman Gosta
T. Jakobsson, 35 years old, of con-
spiring to ship out blueprints of
Swedish submarines. It made no
-mention of any transmission of
atomic secrets.
"They are people with some-
what extravagant drinking habits
who talked a little bit too much
about things they intended to do,
but may not have done it," a For-

' Resignation
e 1
Vic Heyliger announced early
last week that he will leave his
post as Michigan hockey coach,
July 1, to enter private business,
His suddent resignation marks
the end of a 13 year reign as
Michigan ice mentor - a period
of unprecedented growth and suc-
cess for collegiate hockey which
produced six NCAA championships
for the Maize and Blue.
Heyliger, a great scorer and a
fine skater for the Wolverines
from 1935-37, will enter the
restaurant business in Colorado
Springs, Colo. and plans to con-
tinue operating the boys' summer
camp in Wyoming which he has
been running for the past 12 years.
Heyliger had been considering
making the change for some time,
but his resignation came as a sur-
prise to Michigan athletic officials.
The 41-yr.-old Heyliger called his
decision to leave the coaching
fieeld, "the toughest choice I've
ever made."
He added, "I've been a coach or
player all my life, and I don't know
of a better place to coach or play
than at Michigan. It's been perfect
and I'm going to miss it very
much. But this is simply an oppor-
tunity that I can't afford to pass

Bomb Site
By Britain
LONDON (M - The British gov-
ernment yesterday asserted its
right to declare a danger area for
H-bomb tests in the mid-Pacific
and said any trespassers will be
there at their own risk.
Minister of Supply Aubrey Jones
in a brief statement to the House
of Commons, stood by Britain's
plans to conduct the test. It was
a curtain-raiser to major debate
today on the government's plans
to streamline conventional defense
forces and rely on guided missiles
and atomic power as a deterrent
to war.
The Labor party has proposed a
motion of censure against the gov-
ernment and is demanding post-
ponement of the H-tests until
efforts can be made to gain agree-
ment for calling them off.
Britain has declared the area
around Christmas Island in the
Pacific a danger area, and is pre-
paring to explode her first H-bomb
there sometime this spring.
The Japan Council Against
Atomic and Hydrogen Bombs has
been pushing plans to send a
"peace fleet" to skirt the area,
and has announced that 264 per-
sons have, volunteered to go on the
protest mission.
A British man and his wife are
among the volunteers and Lord
Bertrand Russell, British philoso-
pher, and a group of prominent
Britons have taken the lead to
raise funds to finance the venture.
The Russians are waging a
propaganda campaign against nu-
clear tests even while going ahead
with four nuclear explosions with-
in the last 12 days.

U' Tax Report
LANSING (A') - Gov. G. Men-
nen Williams yesteerday charged
there has been "an outrageous
attempt" to suppress a University
of Michigan report on the effects
of state taxes on industrial plant
Williams said he also had been
told "on good authority" that
efforts were made to persuade
the University to recall copies of
the report already distributed.
"When this failed," he said in
a statement, "certain of the busi-
nessmen who are named in the re-
port as members of the advisory
panel for the study repudiated it
The report, prepared by Univer-
sity economist Dr. John A. Lar-
son, "demolishes a favorite argu-
ment that state taxes are adversely
affecting business," the governor
Commenting on it last week, he
said he was "gratified" that Lar-
son and five other professors who
advised him in the study "could
find no claim that state taxes are
a determining factor in the loca-
tion of business in Michigan."

Senate Ups
E, H Bond
Interest Rate
WASHINGTON (M)--After only
ten minutes debate, the Senate
yesterday passed by voice vote a
bill to increase the interest ceil-
ing on government savings bond
to three and one-quarter per cent
from three per cent.
The measure, aimed at spurring
lagging =sales of the bonds, now
goes back to the House which
passed it earlier with a three and
one-half per cent ceiling.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
originally asked Congress to hike
the limit to four and one-quarter
per cent on the series E and H
bonds, to permit the same return
as other government obligations.
The Senate acted after a brief
explanation of the bill by Sen.
Harry F. Byrd (D-Va), chairman
of the Finance Committee, and
cut the figure to three and one-
quarter per cent.
The Treasury had said it plans
to apply the three and one-quar-
ter per cent rate on all series E
and H bonds sold after Feb. 1,
Under the Treasury's plans the
E bonds will reach maturity, and
maximum value, in 8 years and
11 months instead of 9 years and
8 months. The issue price and the
face value will remain the same
but the four-for-three payoff in
the shorter period will convert to
three and one-quarter per cent.
Purchasers, to get the full three
and one-quarter per cent, must
hold the bonds to maturity.
The Treasury hasn't decided
what interest will be paid on E
bonds after maturity. At present
they draw a straight 3 per cent.
Byrd was the only one to speak
on the bill, although several other
Democratic senators had planned
to make speeches.

Drawing for Barbour Occurs Despite Protest

Drawing for housing in Betsy Barbour took place as usual last
night despite protests of several Jewish women before vacation that
it conflicted with observance of the Passover holiday, which began
last night.
Proxy drawing was not permitted.
Approximately 130 women waited eagerly and nervously at the
League as names were taken from a bucket.
About 40 percent of the 150 applicants for 77 spaces were Jewish,
According to Herman Jacobs, director of Hillel foundation, several
girls left the Passover service early to attend the drawing.
