Transferring money/from construction to operations budget, the
Senate yesterday passed the University's appropriation bill without
any over-all increase in funds.
The legislators ct $3,559,000 from the capital outlay budget and
added it to the operations and administrative appropriation through
an amendment permitting the University to use 40 per cent student
fees to help finance construction.
While switching funds, the senate increased the operations

Airs 'Leak'
Inside CAB
WASHINGTON (A') - Raymond
Sawyer, a high official of the
Civil Aeronautics Board, . was
named yesterday as the possible
source of a "leak" of secret and
valuable CAB information.
Sawyer promptly denied it.
He swore before a Senate in'-
quiry group that he had never dis-
closed to anyone CAB's decision
last Aug. 2 to award Northeast
R Airlines a money-making New
York-Miami route.
Sawyer, associate director of
CAB's Bureau of International
Air Operations, was called before
the Senate Investigations subcom-
mittee after another witness, Lau-
rence Henderson, changed his
story and acknowledged he might
have gotten a tip on the route
award fr'om Sawyer.
Flushed and perspiring - andI
on second thought - Henderson
said he believes he did get a call
from Sawyer on Aug. 3.
Sawyer's subsequent testimony
was that he had not talked to
Henderson that day and that the
only time in his life he had talked
to Henderson was on Aug. 10 -
and then about another matter.
Commenting on the conflicting
testimony, Sen. Steward Syming-
ton (D-Mo.,) a subcommittee
member, said Sawyer's "life is
destroyed" if Henderson's state-
ments stand up.
Symington asked whether it
wasn't true that Henderson has
"perjured himself."
Donald E. O'Donnell, the sub-
committee's counsel, said that "in
effect" Symington was, right.
After a partial transcript of
Henderson's testimony was read
to him, Sawyer said: "I deny call-
ling him on the third."
"About anything?" he was

TACOMA, Wash. () - Dave'
Beck, the onetime laundry driver
who built a personal fortune in
his rise to the presidency of one
of the nation's biggest labor un-
ions, was charged here yesterday
with income tax evasion.
A federal grand jury returned
a two-count indictment against
the Teamsters' Union chief after
it was reconvened quietly to hear
the case.
The first count charges him
with failure to report $88,828 of
1950 income on which additional
taxes of $56,420 should have been

The second count accuses Beck
of assisting in preparation of a

man quoted him as saying that
because he has not been notified
officially of the grand jury action
"and on advice of counsel, I can-
not comment on the matter at
this time."
Maximum Penalty
The maximum possible penalty
under each count of the indict-
ment is five years in prison and a
$10,000 fine.
The indictment was returned
just 13 days before the statute of
limitations would have ended any
chance of prosecution for charges
dating back to 1950.

HONORS COUNCIL - Prof. Barrows, Leslie. Dietz, and Prof.
Steinhoff speak on new system. The talk was to explain both
honors programs and the new honors council.
Honors Council Program
Very Flexible-Stemhoff
The new honors council system should not be thought of as a
carefully worked out-detailed program, or a special intensified course,
Prof. William Steinhoff of the English department said yesterday.
Speaking before an audience composed of students and faculty,
Prof. Steinhoff emphasized the flexibility of the program.
He also noted that implementation of the program would begin
next year when the Honor's Council under the leadership of Professor
Robert Angell of the sociology department, would begin.
The talk, which was sponsored by the Literary College Steering
Committee, was designed to explain honors programs and the new

Student Health
Plan Delayed,

Says Beckett
A compulsory student health
insurance program at the Uni-
versity has been postponed, ac-
cording to Dr. Morley Beckett,
director of Health Service.
Dr. Beckett had headed a com-
mittee which worked for about a
year on a health insurance pro-
gram for all students, with the
University making the payments.
The committee report for such
a program had met with adminis-
trative favor, Dr. Beckett said,
and the group had already heard
bids from two insurance compan-
However, plans for such a pro-
gram had to be postponed, because
the University did not have the
funds to carry out the program,
Dr. Beckett explained.
Student Government Council
had endorsed a compulsory health
insurance set-up last March.
When the Council learned the
program had to be dropped, it
established a student health in-
surance committee to study plans,
learn student opinion of the sub-
ject, and deal with the insurance
companies, as the representative
of the council.
The Council felt negotiations
would be so complicated, that the
small group would be most effec-
tive as negotiators.
The committee, according to
Scott Chrysler, '59, chairman of
the SGC committee hasn't met as
a group yet, however.

Counseling Service
Prof. Steinhoff emphasized there
would be elaborate counseling
service for the superior student
under the new program, and that
he might be assigned to courses
beyond the usual freshman level,
and perhaps a, specially designed
inter-departmental course.
The Council was established
after a study of the faculty com-
mittee on curricular flexibility, ac-
cording to Prof. Steinhoff.
The committee, Prof. Steinhoff
said, made four general proposals
concerning an Honors Council pro-
1) Detection of superior stu-
dents before they reach college.
2) Some kind of recruitment
3) Special counseling1
4) Within the college s o m e
agency should be set up to stimu-
late departments to establish spe-
cial c o u r s e s, programs and
methods to interest the superior
Freed From Classes
Prof. Herbert Barrows of the
English department noted that

dent might be freed from going to
classes all day. He would be able

WASHINGTON (R) -President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday

in his military-economic plan for
combatting Middle East commun-

tions to visit these three Arab
Dim View
The invitations seemed unlikely
to be forthcoming. All threetna-
tions had made clear they took a
dim view of the Eisenhower reso-
lution and its $200,000,000.
Each, in its own way, had cold-
shouldered Richards.
It was to get him out of this
embarrassing situation that the
United States State Department
last week announced Richards
would go to Bonn, West Germany,
to confer with Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles.
Dulles went to Bonn Tuesday for
a North Atlantic Treaty meeting,
To Plan Itinerary
The State Department said last
week that Dulles and Richards
would meet to plan the rest of
Richards' itinerary through the
Middle East to explain the Eisen-
hower plan.
But President Eisenhower de-
cided Wednesday to cancel that
meeting. instead, he directed
Richards to return to Washington.
For the record, it was explained
that Richards is coming here to
help prepare the new foreign aid
Officials made little effort, how-
ever, to hide a more practical rea-
This was that, after touring 12
countries in six weeks and with
three more on his schedule, he was
ready for a rest.
Richards' decision to go to Is-
rael caused more than one set of
eyebrows to be raised.
The Eisenhower administration
has been jealously guarding the
Arab good will it won by its oppo-
sition last October to the British-
French-Israeli attack on Egypt.
Driving Rules
To Be Aired
Those who have complaints
about present driving regulations
will have an opportunity to pre-
sent them to a review board May
8 and 9, according to Vice-Presi-
dent of Student Affairs James A.
Open hearings will be held at
8 p.m. May 8 and 3:30 p.m. on
May 9 at the Student Activities
Vice-President Lewis said any
student or organizations, who
have complaints or suggestions
about present driving regulations
are invited to air their views.'
The review board will include
Vice-President Lewis, Dean of
Men Walter B. Rea, and Assistant
Dean of Men Karl D. Streiff.

Infectious Liver
Cause o Death
Key Communist Investigator Fades
Into Obscurity with Condemnation
WASHINGTON 0--Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis)
died yesterday in Bethesda Naval Hospital of acute hepatitis.
The Wisconsin senator, 47 years old, had been one of the
most controversial men in American public life.
He was a key figure in the investigations of communism
which roused high feelings in the early 1950s, but he faded
to relative obscurity after the Senate voted condemnation 'of
some of his conduct in 1954.
Liver Inflammation
McCarthy's death came five days after he was hospital-
ized for a liver inflammation, acute hepatitis.
He is survived by his widow and former Senate aide,
Jean Kerr McCarthy, and the infant daughter they adopted
adopted early this year.
McCarthy had been ill for varying periods over the past
few years, suffering from sinus trouble, bursitis and a knee
injury which he attributed tot

a steel fragment lodging in
the knee during his World
War II service as a Marine
officer in the South Pacific.
Mrs. McCarthy was at the sena-
tor's bedside when he died.
Officially the death was attrib-
uted to "acute hepatic failure."
Senate Membership
McCarthy's death cuts the Re-
publican membership in the Sen-
ate to 46, compared with the
Democrats' 49.
Wisconsin's Republican Gov.
Vernon W. Thompson will fill the
vacancy with a Republican after
the funeral.
McCarthy-whose activities gave
a new word, "McCarthyism," to
the English language-died in the
same naval hospital where he had'
been a patient on past occasions,
notably during his Senate "trial."
That proceeding culminated in
a vote that be had:

tional processes of the Senate,"
and 2. breached "senatorial eth-

The Senate group is trying to

Politically - and perhaps per-
sonally - this verdict was a well
nigh fatal blow ,to the sardoni-
cally witty, sometimes sentimen-1

Joe McCarthy-he liked to be
called "Joe"-was acclaimed by
many as the nation's foremosta

His career came to a climax in
the televised Senate hearings in-
to the row between McCarthy and
high Pentagon officials including
then Secretary of the Army Rob-
ert T. Stevens.
Millions were glued to TV sets
for this airing of McCarthy's
charge that his opponents were
"coddling" Communists and the
counter-charge that McCarthy's
office was trying to "blackmail"
the Pentagon into kid-glove hand-
ling of a wealthy young McCarthy
aide, Pvt. David Schine.
These hearings led to the Senate;
vote of condemnation, as recom-
mended by a special committee
headed by Sen. Arthur Watkins
President Eisenhower let it be
known he was on Watkins' side,
and McCarthy's star quickly faded.
