Bunche Praises UN Emergency Force
As Example of Voluntary Cooperation

PlsACE-PRIZE WINNER-Ralph Bunche told an audience at Hill
Auditorium last night the UN provides "a basis for hope in the
Near East." -
SChristians Celebrate Easter-;
Fewer Travel to Holy Land
By The Associated Press
Christians in a world still beset by crisis and human strife corn-
niemorate anew today the resurrection of Christ the Savior.
In rituals, prayer and song many lands will pay tribute to the
Man of Galilee-.
-Pilgrimages Discouraged
In Jerusalem itself discouragement to Middle East travel since
the Sinai war last fall reduced to hundreds instead of thousands
the number of Easter pilgrims.
But in the United States millions entered the quiet, peaceful
atmosphere of churches to worship. Other millions rose before

Creation of the United Nations
Emergency Force during the Suez
crisis was the "most encouraging
demonstration of international
cooperation the world has yet
seen," UN Under-Secretary Ralph
Bunche said last night.
The Nobel Peace prize winner
spoke in the last of the University
Lecture Series at Hill Auditorium.
He pointed out that all plans
for the force had to be worked out
"from scratch," and all aid was
recruited by telephone and cable-
gram without very complex ne-
Twenty-Four Volunteers
All one had to do, he said, was
ask for what was needed, and it
was delivered. Twenty-four states
volunteered to send troops and
Bunche explained, wasic t choos
only ten nations without hurting
the other 14's feelings.
Bunche emphasized that the
quick action taken by the UN
other Korean type situation, and
possibly a World War.
Acting Body
This proved to the world, he
noted, that the UN could con-
vert from a talking to an acting
body. The quickest and most de-
cisive action the body had ever
taken, he declared, came about
despite critics' complaints noth-
ing decisive ,could come from an
assembly of 80 members.,
And states contributed aid
quickly and without question.
Several Offers
He cited the United States of-
fer of air transportation, the ac-
a tging area for troops on their
way to Egypt, Switzerland's con-
tribution of air ferry service al-
though this country is not a UN
member, and Egypt's permission
to let UNEF into the country as
examples of this.
Clearing the Suez Canal was
accomplished at an astonishing
rate because of International
spirit, he declared.
Clearing Costs
Estimated cost for the operation
was 40 million dollars and finish-
ing date had been set for May 15.
Under the direction of Gen. Ray-
mond Wheeler, ships of seven na-
tions flying the UN flag had the
canal cleared by March at a cost
of only 11 million dollars.
Bunche emphatically denied all
"kinds of allegations" about
shoddy treatment UNEF had re-
ceived from Egypt, and hit "In-
credibly loose reporting" which
has given the world an inaccurate
picture of the Near East situation.
UNEF has been in Egypt for six
months, he said, and at no time
has been "dictated to or kicked
around" by anybody. It has gone
about its job with no hindrance
of any kind.
The UN, he concluded, provides
a basis for hope, "perhaps the
only basis for hope," for peace
in the Near East.
Ilussel Talk
To Be Given
Professor Louis I. Bredvold of
the English department will de-
liver the Henry Russel Lecture
at 4:15 p.m. Tuesday in the
Natural Science Auditorium.
Professor Bredvold was accorded
the lectureship last autumn. The
subject of his speech will be "Some
Basic Issues of the Eighteenth
The chance to deliver the Russel
Lecture is considered the highest
honor the University can pay one
of its faculty members.

Ann Arbor Bookstore Prices 'Not Unreasonable'

Feelings that .Ann Arbor book-
stores gouge students are b'asically
unjustified, a Student Government
C o u nc i I committee discovered
while investigating the possibilities
of a student bookstore on campus.
The committee, which made
their long awaited report to SGC
'at Wednesday's meeting, s e n t
questionnaires to approxima' ely
twenty colleges and universities
having student - operated book-

bookstores, whether commercially
or student-operated, the commit-
tee estimated that "a student
bookstore could feasibly sell texts
five to 15 per cent below list price."
After examining questionnaires
asking the bookstores at other
schools about their organization,
the Campus Affairs subcommittee,
~headed by Jordan Lewis, '59, even-
tually concluded that:

"Unfortunately, the s m a 11
amount of possible saving to the
student hardly seems worth the
effort and expense," Goldman told
SGC when presenting the report.
A student buying $40 worth of
books a semester would save be-
tween $2 and $6 a semester. "If we
could make a substantial saving, it
would be worthwhile, but few stu-
dents seem interested in .the corn-

used books, but they fail to realize
that if the texts are not used in
the University next semester, the
stores can't do much with them.
Because of this, they can't afford
to pay very high prices," he said.
Having observed that existing
student operated bookstores were
established on other campuses
years ago, before they had any
competition, or "where existing
conditions favored their establish-
ment," the committee concluded
that it would be infeasible to es-
