Panhel To Ask
For Fall Rushing
Deferred Rushing Calendar May Be
Presented at Tonight's SGC Meeting
Panhellenic Association will petition for a fall rushing program
for next year at the Student Government Council meeting at 7:30
p.m. today in the Student Activities Building.
The group also will probably present a deferred rushing calen-
dar which sets the dates for its first mixer Dec. 6-8.
In March, 1956, after heated debate, SGC had set the spring se-
mester 1958 as the time for sorority rushing.
Began Work in March
Panhel has been working on the calendar since last March. The
group continually hit snags, and faced new problems. It conferred with

*MSU Dean
Denies News
The Michigan State News, Mich-
igan State University student
newspaper, ran an editorial Mon-
day which it claimed that Dean of
Students Tom King had ordered
not to be published.
Further, the News printed an
editorial in the same issue saying
the "censorship attempt" was "un-
fair and unnecessary."
King denied any censorship at-
The editorial that began the
controversy dealt with an MSU
automatic suspension rule on four
major offenses. The News claimed
that students should have hearings
regardless of the offense and ap-
parent sureness of guilt.
News Editor Comments
Mel Reiter, Michigan State News
editor, told The Daily that a
reporter who went to King for
information on the ruling was
ordered not to print an editorial
on it. Reiter said that the News
editors felt that no administrator
had a right to censor and ran the
editorial anyway.
Consequently, the News ran an
editorial in the same issue attack-
ing King for his action. The edi-
torial stated that it was written,
"not to spite" the Dean "but be-
cause the collective members of
the State News editorial board be-
lieve that it is pertinent and valu-
able to the student body."
King claimed that no censor-
ship order was imposed. He said,
"I told them I couldn't do any-
thing but enforce a State Board of
Agriculture ruling, and that if they
were going to write an editorial, to
leave me out of it."
No Idea of Censorship
King further said, "I just felt
it would be better if the editorial
were not written. I had no idea of
censoring the paper."
The four reasons for automatic
suspension at Michigan State are
possessing alcohol on campus, en-
tertaining a woman in men's resi-
dences, overt participation in
"riot" and three offenses of oper-
ating a car without a permit.
King said that because the paper
is subsidized by student fees
some thought should be given to
the welfare of the university.
The editorial told of a previous
disagreement with King over an
editorial criticizing the "hasty"
suspension of seven men who par-
ticipated in a panty raid. King
replied that the hearing took eight
days and that some of the students
were called in three times to ex-
plain their roles in the incident.
Reiter said yesterday that no
apparent disciplinary action has
resulted because of the running of
the editorials.
Dulles Leaves
For Germany
WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles held a
25-minute airport conference with
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
yesterday, then took off for a
North Atlantic Treaty meeting in
West Germany.
A principal aim of Dulles' mis-
sion is reported to be to cement
the NATO alliance more firmly
together in the face of the Soviet
Communist threat.
Sec. Dulles and Undersecretary
Christian Herter were waiting at
National Airport when President
Eisenhower flew in from a 13-day

the League, the Union, the J-Hop
Committee, the Dean of Women's
office and WAA on Calendaring
problems. It never requested aid
from SGC or Vice-President for
Student Affairs, James A. Lewis.
Chris Eckhard, '57Ed, former
Panhel first -vice-president, ex-
plained the group thought spring
rush was their own responsibility,
and they had to produce the best
program they could on their own.
Several weeks ago, Panhel sent
a tentative rushing calendar to
sorority presidents. It had the de-
ferred rush set-up beginning with
registration in November and the
first set of mixers in December.
Later Sets Second Semester
The later sets were planned to
begin after the spring semester
had started, with two day breaks
between each set for IBM tabulat-
Panhel uses IBM punch cards
to help facilitate the rushing pro-
Trouble began when Panhel
members learned the December
rush program might be in viola-
tion of the SGC ruling, which had
set rushing for the Spring semes-
Panhel members claimed they
had not thought a violation ex-
isted because most of the program
took place in February.
Bruce M. Arden, supervisor of
tabulating services, told The Daily
that the women had been working
with the December rush program
for several months.
Asks For Continuation
Then Panhel's board of dele-
gates voted Thursday to ask SGC
for a continuation of fall rushing,
19 for, 1 against and 1 abstention.
The vote had taken place after
a brief explanation by an execu-
tive officer, according to a dele-
gate who wished to remain anony-
The women were told, accord-
ing to the same source, that a pos-
sible shortening of the inter-ses-
sion, delay of grades, time needed
for IBM tabulation and conflict
with campus activitiesrwere rea-
sons for the f-all rush request.
Dianne Duncan, '58Ed., first
vice-president, told the Daily,
"You can't reschedule J-Hop,
Frosh Week-end, and Michigras."
These programs take a great deal
of. preparation and rushing would
take place at the same time as
that preparation, she said.
Houck Declines Comment
Marilyn Houck, '58Ph, Panhel
president, declined to comment at
all on the situation, explaining the
entire rationale will be presented
to SGC tonight.
According to Miss Eckhard, the
decision to request fall rushing
came sometime after April. She
said the women had worked hard
to develop a spring calendar.
Recently, at least one sorority
has received a letter from its na-i
tional, requesting it to endorse the
fall rushing petition. The national1
had learned of the petitionl
through letters sent out by theI
present Panhel officers.
One member of the calendaring,
sub-committee of Panhel's re-
search committee, who preferred
to go unnamed, told The Daily,
that although the women did work
on a spring rush program, the
prevailing tone was "Oh, if we
could only return to fall rushing."

Texas River
Fills Banks,
ruins Crops
DALLAS W) -Weary men pa-
trolled Texas river levees and
stacked sandbags yesterday as
swollen streams spread over crop-
lands and into towns and cities.
The upper Sabine River in east
Texas reached heights never be-
fore recorded. Upriver levees held
damage to minor flooding. Resi-
dents of downstream towns re-
mained alert, ready to flee the
threatening river.
The main danger areas appeared
to be on the lower reaches of the
Sabine, Trinity, Brazos, Colorado,
Nueces and Guadalupe, and on
four bayous around Houston.
Reading from west to east, these
were the potential danger spots:
Three Rivers on the Colorado,
Freeport and the Navasota area
on the Brazos, Liberty on the Trin-
ity and Deweyville on the Sabine.
The floods, which began with
heavy downpours April 18, brought
strange contrasts after seven sear-
ing years of (Vought.
In lowland areas, farmer bitter-'
ly watched as their crops were
ruined for the eighth year-this
time by floods. Their cattle
drowned and floated downriver.
Little children and their parents
huddled in flood relief shelters.
In upland areas or sections not
touched by damaging floods, farm-
ers and ranchers rejoiced at
greening fields and pastures.
Men controlling the gates on
Texas lakes had these choices:
Keep the lake gates closed and
flood upstream areas and possibly
damage their dams.
Open the lakes and add more
misery to the plight of down-
stream dwellers.

President Hatcher suggested that
the Federal Government surrender
to the states some of the sources of
taxation to be used directly for the
support of education.
"This, at least, would keep the
schools in their rightful and tradi-
tional place in the local commun-
ity," he said.
He also suggested that state and
local authorities should either,
abandon the present system of
"dedicated taxes for specific pur-
poses,' or place higher education
in a more assured position alongs
with other items on the budget.
Unless these reforms are under-
taken, the task of outfitting the
colleges and universities will in-c
evitably shift to "our great white
magician father of more and more

dent Hatcher asserted.a
The situation has now been
reached where the Federal Gov-
ernment has so heavily pre-empted7
the sources of revenue that the
statendoes not know how to meet

its needs with what is left.1
"With private and corporate
support unavailable, and with the
state feeling poor and crowded out
of a tax supply, local and state1

Hatcher declared.

U.S. Blames Reds
For Jrdn Crisis
WASHINGTON (A) - The United States, striking back at Russia,
yesterday blamed the crisis in Jordan on intervention controlled by
Soviet "international communism."
A spokesman declared that since World War II the Soviet Union
"has subjected ten once independent nations to its rule." His applica-
tion appeared to be that the Reds have been trying to gain domina-
tion of Jordan.
State Department press officer Lincoln White made the charge
of foreign intervention at a news conference in response to requests
for United States government reaction to charges made in Moscow
The Soviet Foreign Ministry had declared that the United States
was primarily responsible for any "grave consequences" that might



<f 1 ---4)

arise from the Jordanian crisis. Its
assailed the West for "foreign in-
terference" in the Middle East.
King Hussein of Jordan had de-
clared last week that the troubles
of his country were due to "inter-
national communism and its fol-
The United States endorsed his
assertion at the time but yester-
day's comments by White pinned
the responsibility somewhat more
directly on the Soviet Union.
"The Soviet Union, he said, "has
declared that foreign intervention
in the form of activities by West-
ern powers, particularly the
United States, is responsible for
recent developments in Jordan,
"There has indeed been foreign
intervention in that country;
mainly, as King Hussein said on
April 24, the intervention of in-,
ternational communism."
Asked what he meant specifi-
cally by international communism,
White said the Soviet Union pro-
claims itself to be the "fountain-
head." He declared that the
United States in effect was saying
in a statement yesterday that in-
ternational communism means
"the agents of the fountainhead
of international c o m m u n i s m,
mainly, the Soviet Union."
Senate Delay
On School Bill
Dims Chances
WASHINGTON (W)-Opposition
by Sen. William Knowland, (R-
Calif.) and postponement of Sen-
ate action by Sen. Lyndon B.
Johnson (D-Tex.) chilled the
chances yesterday that Congress
will approve President Dwight D.
Eisenhower's school aid program.
Sen. Knowland, the Senate's Re-
publican leader, told the United
States Chamber of Commerce he
believes it would be "unwise" for
the government to embark on a
four-year program of aid for
school construction such as Presi-
dent Eisenhower has suggested.
Sen. Johnson, the Senate's Dem-
ocratic leader, included school aid
among four bills he said the Senate
will not take up unless or until the
House acts on them. He put civil
rights, immigration and natural
gas legislation-all of which Presi-
dent Eisenhower has favored-in
the same category.
President Eisenhower asked Con-
gress in January to authorize a
four-year $2,077,500,000 program
to help the states build classrooms.
He included a 451-million-dollar
item in his budget to get the pro-
gram started in the year beginning
July 1.




Russia Tells
Partial Plane
To Open Sky
LONDON OP) - Russia offered
yesterday to open up part of the
Soviet Union to President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's sky patrol plan in
exchange for Soviet photo surveys
of Alaska and possibly all the
United States west of the Missis-
sippi River.
The plan was laid before the
United Nations disarmament sub-
committee and was plugged heav-
,ily by Moscow radio.
The United States delegation
declined to comment and other
subcommittee members reacted
variously. Some thought the Soviet
plan slightly encouraging. Other
reaction was unfavorable.
In Washington, White House
secretary James C. Hagerty de-
clined to comment on the proposal.
In return for Soviet photo re-
connaissance of Alaska and an
area that might embrace the 22
states west of the Mississippi River,
the Russians offered to open up
about one-thirdeof the Soviet
The Russian area would embrace
eastern Siberia, an unspecified
area in Europe, the Kamchatka
Peninsula west of the Aleutian
Islands, and Sakhalin, the big is-
land north of Japan.
But apparently the heart of Eu-
ropean Russia including Moscow
would not be included.
Diplomatic quarters calculated
the Russians wanted to photograph
everything west of New Orleans
and including Chicago.
The great industrial regions of
the West Coast-San Diego, Los
Angeles, San Francisco and Seat-
tle-would come within the orbit
of aerial inspection.
Positions Open
On Joint Judic
Positions are now open for Joint
Judiciary Council, according to
Joint Judic Chairman, Herb Wan-
der, '57.
Any person from any school at
the University is eligible for po-
sition who has completed more
than 60 credit hours by the end
of the semester.
Petitions are available in the
Office of Student Affairs and in-
terviewing will begin on May 13.
Joint Judiciary Council hears
cases of student social and oth-
er violations.

King Rej ects
Claim of U.S.
Dangers -Not Over;
Martial Law Continues
In Nervous Kingdom
AMMAN, Jordan (M'-King Hus-
sein announced yesterday "the
crisis in Jordan is ended."
The 21-year-old monarch, ap-
parently feeling himself in firm
control after three weeks of touch-
and-go tension which threatened
the peace of the whole Middle
East, rejected a Soviet complaint
that the United States was inter-
fering in Jordan affairs.
He told a crowded news confer-
ence Jordan is not interested in
the Eisenhower Doctrine which
aims to defend the Middle ast
from Communist aggression.
"But if it is a matter of com-
bating communism, this we are
doing," he said.
Danger Not Over
The danger was not over, despite
the surface calm. Military .law
remained in effect in this nervous
kingdom, target for heavy propa-
ganda attacks from Egypt, Syria
and the Soviet Union. Political
parties remained under a ban.
The King said he declined a visit
from President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's special envoy, James P.
Richards, because this country had
no interest in the Eisenhower Doc.
trine. This, plus Hussein's insist-
ence on his continued devotion to
Pan-Arab nationalism, under-
scored the temper of the country.
To accept the Eisenhower Doc-
trine or to speak out against the
Arab nationalism personified by
President Gamal Nasser of Egypt
would be an invitation to new dis-
orders in a nation kept from vio-
lence only by the strict application
of martial law.
Pan-Arab Ambitions
Despite attacks from the Syrian
and Egyptian radios, the King
spoke softly with regard to Pan-
Arab ambitions. He was asked
what he thought of those attacks.
"Whoever tries to attack Jordan
or aggravate its great difficulties,
that country would be the one to
blame for anything that might af-
fect the. relations of the Arab
countries together," Hussein re-
Jordan, the King added, "will
never depart from the principles
of Arab nationalism laid down on
Feb. 27 at the Arab Big Four con-
ference in Cairo."
At that meeting the rulers of
Egypt, Syria, Saudi Arabia and
Jordan agreed to reject pacts with
non-Arab states and to strengthen
Arab military cooperation against
the "common enemy," meaning
Saudi Arabian Support
Saudi Arabia, with troops in
Jordan since the Suez fighting last
fall, strongly supported Hussein in
the current crisis.
A Damascus dispatch indicated
the King's foes had not given up
hope. The dispatch quoted Maj.
Gen. Ali Abu Nuwar, deposed as
chief of staff and sent packing to
Syria early in the crisis, as appeal-
ing to King Saud to believe that
"what is happening in Jordan is a
dirty colonial conspiracy aimed at
expanding the Baghdad Pact so it
will embrace Jordan."
Hussein brushed aside Soviet al-
legations of American interference
in Jordan.
Right for The Country
"Everything that took place in
Jordan" he said "was of our own
doing, and it was what we believe
and still believe was right for the
interests of this country."

Hussein's new government is
ready to accept a United States
offer of 10 million dollars in eco-
nomic aid, provided the aid does
not commit this country to the
Eisenhower Doctrine.
The State Department in Wash-
ington indicated Jordan asked for
the aid last weekend and said it
would not come from the 200-mil-
lion-dollar fund authorized to help
