Hussein Assumes
Jordan Control
Y Army-, Police Maintain Strict Order
After Supporting King in Showdown
AMMAN, Jordan (P)-Jordan's new government, which is expected
to turn this Middle Eastern nation aside from its drift toward the
Arab pro-Soviet camp, appeared to be in solid control yesterday.
Tough Bedouin troops and security police, who supported 21-year-
old King Hussein when he placed his crown on the line at the height
of Jordan's six-day political crisis, maintained strict order.
All was quiet except in Jordan-held Old Jerusalem and Nablus,
where minor demonstrations were reported. A few persons were injured
in Jerusalem where some Leftist students staged a parade and were

w Seek Truth,
Kelly Tells
Speaking in alternately humor-
ous and serious veins, Walt Kelly,
nationally-known cartoonist and
creator of Pogo, yesterday stressed
the idea that journalists are "not
as honest as they should be."
The 1952 Cartoonist of the Year
spoke on the topic, "New Prob-
lems Needed for a New Day" in
Rackham Lecture Hall. Kelly has
appeared here four times in the
last five years.. The lecture was
sponsored by the journalism de-
Stressing, the importance of
honesty in reporting, Kelly said,
"Young journalists should check
up on honesty. Newspaper people
must continue to seek the truth."
'Pogo' Has Purpose
Explaining that his Pogo strip
daily attempts to remind us v1e
are all somewhat alike,*'Kelly of-
fered samples of his famous ar-
tistic talents to the 350 persons
in his audience.
He claimed journalists are not
treating human nature enough.
Despite the fact that Americans
have trouble being simple, the
humorist pointed out that the in-
dividual usually strives to win the
approval of the majority. "Each
person," he said "is a one-man
democracy operating on an im-
puse of caution."
Must Advance
Kelly told the receptive audi-
ence that "We can't afford to be
like the primitive or medieval
man. We must move ahead."
He bemoaned the fact that the
United States has failed to rec-
ognize Communist China and said
that he would offer to head a
group of his own choice to inves-
tigate the minds of the Chinese.
Kelly believes American reporters
should be allowed to go to China,
and he attacked attempts by vari-
ous organizations to curtail free-
dom of the press.
"The newspaper," he concluded,
"will benefit only if we are honest
in reporting."
Cyprus Rebel

bishop Makarios of Cyprus left by

Turnbull of Kenya declared he

The new government of Premier
Hussein Fakhri Khalidi, which
took office Monday is expected to
carry out a swift cleanup of pro-
Communist elements who had in-
filtrated the government, schools

Nabulsi's Position
Nabulsi, who is foreign minister

himself to fighting communism.
His government also had started

UN To Hear
Suez Canal
Egypt Insists on Full
Control of Operations
WASHINGTON ()-The United
States is expected to report to the
United Nations before Easter its
failure to budge Egypt's determi-
nation to operate the Suez Canal
The United States is reported
ready to give American ships an
informal "go - ahead" to pass
through the canal under Egyptian
terms - but under protest against
Egypt's attitude.
Such voyages would involve ac-
ceptance of Egyptian government
pilots and would mean paying tolls
directly to Egypt. Egyptian lead-
ers, it is recognized, would be cer-
tain to hail it as clear evidence
they are winning their 9-month-
old struggle to operate the 103-
mile waterway without foreign
At present, American shippers
are heeding State Department
"advice" that they stay away from
the canal even though it has been
To make clear it is dissatisfied
with Egypt's attitude, the Amer-
ican government plans to main-
tain a freeze on about 37 million
dollars worth of Egyptian assets
in this country.
This money, it was said, would
be held as a fund to compensate
American shippers in the event the
old Suez Canal Co. successfully
sues American vessels which pay
tolls directly to Egypt.
U.S. May Give
Canal Issue
To UN Council
Sources close to the United States
delegation said last night the
United States will decide today
whether to ask for a meeting of
the United Nations Security Coun-
cil on the Suez Canal issue.
Ambassador James J. Wads-
worth, acting head of the delega-
tion. conferred separately with UN
Secretary General Dag Ham-
marskjold and Egyptian delegate
Omar Loutfi.
The sources said he was report-
ing to Washington, where the de-
cision would be made.
Loutfi, Hans Engen of Norway,
Arthur Lall of India, and Sir Pier-
son Dixon of Britain also had
separate conferences with Ham-
The United States was under-
stood to be weighing two con-
siderations: .
1. Whether a report to the
Council on United States-Egyptian
negotiations on canal operation
would help close the gaps remain-
ing between the two countries; or,
2. Whether this would only give
an opening for Soviet propoganda
among the Arab countries and
thus dosmore harm than good to
canal users.
The remaining gaps were under-
stood to concern how far Egypt
would go toward granting canal
users a part in the operation, arbi-
trating disputes, and recognizing
the six principles for canal settle-
ment approved by the Council Oct.

SGC To Hear
Group Report
On Book Store
Results of investigation into the
possibility of establishing a stu-
dent bookstore will be presented
to Student Government Council at
its meeting at 7:30 p.m. today in
the Student Activities Building.
A report will be presented by a
campus affairs subcommittee
which was established last spring
to explore the feasibility of a stu-
dent book store. The committee
will make recommendations con-
cerning a North Campus book
store and the existing Student
Book exchange.
Study of the University Regula-
tions Handbook and the establish-
ment of a committee on increasing
enrollment will also receive SGC
attention along with a motion re-
garding calendaring of activities
before final exams.

and name higher-ups.
"Go ahead, we've got him taken
care of," he quoted Durkin as re-
plying. "You're only going to get
yourself in deeper and deeper."
Hanlon Denies All
Bradshaw, now awaiting sen-
tence for dynamiting a house to
"organize" a building contractor,
said he told Hanlon on a Scranton
street, "I've got something that is
going to turn the city upside
He quoted the Democratic May-
or's reply: "Paul, wait until after
the election." He said Hanlon
added: "I'll see the district attor-
ney and see what can be done."
Bradshaw's testimony brought a
quick telegram from Hanlon say-
ing he never asked the witness to
"lay off" the case.
Telegram Not Admitted
Hanlon asked that his telegram
be read into the record, but com-
mittee Chairman John McClellan
(D-Ark.) refused. He directed
committee counsel Robert Ken-
nedy to notify the mayor he could
come to Washington and testify
or file a sworn statement.
Kennedy said Hanlon already
had been so advised.
Then Sen. McClellan recalled
Bradshaw to the witness chair, re-
minded him he was under oath,
and told him of the mayor's de-
nial. Bradshaw firmly repeated
his testimony.
Accuses Another
He said one "Billy" Munley,
also of Teamsters Local 229 at
Scranton, was the man who "done
the actual job, set it off."
"Has it been general knowledge
in Scranton that the mayor ap-
proached you?" Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ariz.) asked.
"No sir," Bradshaw said.
In his telegram, Hanlon called
Bradshaw "an admitted perjurer"
and said "at no time did I ask
the witness Bradshaw to 'lay off'
the case as he has tesified."
Cutler Calls
Big Problem
Negro oversensitiveness to their
race was pictured yesterday by a
University psychology professor as
a hindrance to solution of racial
Speaking before the Culture
Club, Prof. Richard Cutler of the
psychology department urged Ne-
groes to work for better Negro-
white relations through individual
and personal relations.
Gives Warning
In discussing "Psychological
Problems and Tools of Integration"
he warned against the Negro, in
his relations with others, acting
and thinking as a Negro instead of
as a person.
"But there is no reason to be-
lieve," he said in answer to a ques-
tion, "that any active policy in the
Residence Halls to place Negro
and white students together would
cause the former to think of them-
selves or act as 'Negroes' instead
'of persons'."

society has not developed similar
standards to fit the bureaucratic
structure into which that society
is moving.
A great amount of tolerance is
good for a society, Prof. Boulding
said. "And when division of labor
in a society is high, that society
can safely permit a great deal of
'Tolerate Deviants'
"If you want to have a dynam-
ic culture, you have to tolerate de-
viants on the assumption that the
good will outweigh the bad. If
you're intolerant, you can stay in
one place successfully, but you
can't go anywhere else."
To bring "nuisances" to the
fore, "you need strong sub-
groups," Prof. Boulding com-
mented. "Factors which are con-
tributing to our present homogen-
eous society are suppression of im-
migration, public education and
the natural tendency of a society
to age."
Saving Grace
Prof. Katz noted that the tech-
nological deviant has been able
to find support for his research
and even comparatively swift ac-
ceptance of his ideas, while ac-
ceptance of new social and poli-
tical ideas has core very slowly
in this country.
"One saving grace," Prof.
Boulding said, "is our system of a
very active employment market.
There are many niches available.
None of my good Communist
graduate students are starving;
it's hard to be excluded from the
whole society."
SGC Petitions.

Only seven petitions have been
taken out for the four Student
Government Council committee
chairmanships, Administrative
Vice-President Ron Shorr, '58BAd,
said yesterday.
Petitions are due Thursday noon

mittee, the Education and Social

tions Director, Personnel Director

sistant to Dean of Men, in the
