A All-Night Parking
.r wMajor Streets in 'UT' Area Affected;
Plan To G o into Effect June 20
City Council prohibited all-night parking on major streets in the

The new ordinance goes into effect June 20.
The ban is in accord with recommendations made by a Detroit
firm after a survey of Ann Arbor parking problems. Details were
worked out by a committee including council members and University

Law Open
To Former

Communists
WASHINGTON (P) - The Su-
preme Court ruled yesterday that
Communist party membership in
the past does not by itself disqual-
ify one as morally unfit to prac-
tice law.
In an 8-0 decision the court
overruled New Mexico's refusal
to permit Rudolph Schware, a
former Communist, permission to
take the state bar examination.
In a somewhat similar case
from California, the court divided
5-3 in favor of Raphael Konigs-
berg, who passed the state bar
examination but was denied the
right to practice law.
Justice Black spoke for the
court in both cases.
No Suggestion
In the Schware case, Black said
there was no suggestion that
Schware was affiliated with the
Communist party after 1940 and
added: "\We conclude that his past
membership in the Communist
party does not justify an infer-
ence that he presently has bad
moral character."
The California committee of bar
examiners refused to certify Kon-
igsberg to practice law on the
grounds he failed to prove:
(1) that he was a person of good
moral character and;
(2) that he did not advocate the
overthrow of the government of
the United States or California
by unconstitutional means.
In other action yesterday the
court:

(1) Ruled that the trouble-beset
EInternational Teamsters Union
and affiliates in Portland, Ore.,
must defend themselves against
unfair labor practices brought by
some of their own employes.
The charges, which the Nation-
al Labor Relations Board dis-
missed on the ground it lacked
F jurisdiction, were brought by Lo-
cal No. 11 of Portland of the Of-
fice Employes International Un-
ion.
It is the first case on record of
unfair labor practice charges be-
ing brought by one union against
another union.
(2) Refused to review a deci-
sion of the U.S. Court of Appeals

Both the city and the University
agreed that the ban was necessary,
according to Guy C. Larcom, Jr.,
city administrator.
The new ordinance prohibits
parking from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. on
Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
on the even-numbered side of each
street, and on Tuesday, Thursday;

New Riot
BOGOTA, Colombia (P) - New
anti-government demonstrations
flared in Bogota late yesterday and
police broke them up with tear
gas and powerful streams of dyed
water.
Many students among the dem-
onstrators were reported jailed.
Armored cars guarded the presi-
dential palace.
Inside, President Gustavo Rojas
Pinilla met with his Cabinet and
drafted a radio broadcast to the
nation.
Opposition leaders also were re-
ported huddling. '
Student strikes spread. They
were countered by government or-
ders to close all schools and uni-
veresities.
Students at Jesuit collegesrear-
lier had ignored government radio
pleas to return to classes.
Ten newspapers across the coun-
try quit publishing, apparently in
sympathy with the students.
The demonstrations protested
reported plans of Rojas to have
himself re-elected by a hand-pick-
ed Constituent Assembly.

AFL-CIO,
Issue Union
'Indictment'
May 24 Deadline
For Beck's Reply
WASHINGTON (A'-The AFL-
C10 yesterday threw a 22-page
corruption "indictment" against
Dave Beck's Teamster's Union and
set May 24 asnthe deadline for its
reply.
Still voicing defiance, Beck told
the AFL-CIO Ethical Practices
Committee its charges - which
could lead to ouster of the Team-
sters Union from the labor federa-
tion - constituted "malicious and
unfounded slander of our member-
ship and official family, local and
national."
The AFL-CIO Committee's
charges were based largely on ac-
tivities of Beck as president and
Frank Brewster, Seattle, and Sid-
ney Brennan, Minneapolis, as
vice-presidents, but they also
listed allegations against more
than a score of other teamsters
officials in New York City, Scran-
ton, Pa. and Portland, Ore.
Failed To Investigate
The Ethical Practices Commit-
tee, in its memorandum of charges,
alleged that the embattled team-
sters organization has so far failed
to recognize anything wrong in its
ranks, to conduct any investiga-
tion, or to suspend any union offi-
cials whose activities have been
questioned.
it was contended the teamsters
organization has ample powers to
conduct its own cleanup if it so'
desires.
The federation's detailed listing
of charges seemed to add up to
this:
That as far as the parent AFL-
CIO is concerned the teamsters
will have to dump Beck, Brewster,
Brennan and perhaps a number
of other officers under fire if the
I -million-member trucking
union is to stay in the AFL-CIO
family.
No Mention of Indictment
There was no mention in the
AFL-CIO charges of a federal
court indictment against another
influential teamsters vice-presi-
dent, James i. Hoffa of Detroit.
Hoffa is charged with conspiracy
to bribe a Senate investigator to
feed him information from the
special Senate conuittee investi-
gating labor management activi-
ties.
Hoff a was reported leagued with
two other powerful teamsters
leaders-Secretary-Treasurer John
F. English and Vice-President
William A. Lee - at a teamsters
board meeting yesterday after-
noon, following the AFL-CIO
group's hearing.

BIG CHANGE:
Moscow
Overhauls
IEconomy
MOSCOW (A) - The Supreme
Soviet - Parliament of the USSR
-meets today in special session
to approve the biggest overhaul of
the nation's economy since Stalin
collectivized farms nearly 30 years
ago.
The first outline of the econom-
ic reorganization was published
over the signature of Communist
party chief Nikita S. Khruschev
in late March.
It involves a thorough shakeup
of the government apparatus in
Moscow.
The plan will be approved by
the Supreme Soviet in short order
-but will take months to carry
out.
The present vertical or branch-
of-industry scheme of organiza-
tion puts factories, mines and oth-
er economic enterprises under
several dozen big ministries in
Moscow.
The new plan calls for a hori-
zontal or territorial system of or-
ganization under economic coun-
cils of various administrative-
economic regions of the Soviet
Union.
As an example: the Magnito-
gorsk steel plant in the Urals is
now a part of the Ministry of Fer-
rous Metallurgy in Moscow.
After the reorganization there
will be no such ministry.

he might have'been involved in an
accident, He had been drinking
heavily, the Police report said,

fraternity refused to comment on
the matter.

4 5 MILL LEVY:-*
By JOHN WEICHER
Local voters will go to the polls today to decide on a four and
one-half mill school operating tax increase for Ann Arbor schools.
The tax, if approved, would be in effect for five years.
If the tax is voted down, drastic reductions in operations would
be necessitated, the Ann Arbor Board of Education has warned.
Cutbacks Include Hall-Days
These cutbacks would include half-day sessions in the more
crowded schools, as a "last ditch'" move, and reduction or elimination
of special classes for the glftecfl
and retarded students. - ee
Board officials have already in-
cluded the proposed tax in their
budget for 1957-58. They plan to
use the estimated $700,000 revenue
it would provide for the following: t r

POSTHUMOUS AWARD:
Eugene O'Neill Receives
Pulitzer Prize for Play

To Request
Spring, Rush
In February
Council To Consider
Second Choice Plan
With Minor Change
By RICHARD TAUB
Student Government Council
spring rush calendar committee
decided yesterday to request that
SGC accept the Panhellenicespring
rushing calendar Plan B with
minor modifications, according to
Joe Collins, '58, SGC president,
Panhellenic Association h ad
submitted a report on spring rush-
ing to SGC last Wednesday, which
discussed five calendars "B" had
been the group's second choice.
Under the SGC plan rushing
would take place only in the spring
semester. The program begins with
mixers Friday, Feb. 7, and con-
cludes the rush program Wednes-
day, Feb. 26. Pledging would take
place on March 2.
Panhel's recommendation called
for rushing to begin Feb. 7 and
conclude Feb. 28, with pledging
March 2.
Use IBM Cards
The shortened rush period was
facilitated because the committee
learned tabulating of IBM cards
could take place on the same day
as rushing.
The women use IBM punch
cards to help with the program.
Tabulating could be accomplish-
ed in the morning, according to
Collins, and the women could pick
up their cards in the afternoon.
Panhel's objections to the ori-
ginal calendar B were that it ex-
tended an extra week into the ac-
tivity program, and brought con-
centrated rushing within a week
before five-week exams.
There was also a question as to
when grades would be available.
The modified calendar moves the
last days of rushing back two days,
and the committee has been in-
formed grades will be out around
Feb. 25.
Many Involved
Collins said the calendar had
been worked out by planning
closely with all those concerned,
and Bruce B. Arden, supervisor of
tabulating services.
The committee Collins explained,
tried to keep in mind the dictates
for a spring rushing program as
established by SGC in March, 1956.
Under the spring rush calendar
program, registration will take
place in December. The date has
not been set yet.
Collins said that while there
was no vote taken, the whole com-
mittee agreed to the calendar.
Many people made sacrifices, he
said, so we could have a spring
rush program.
Marilyn Houck, '58P, Panhel
president, expressed favor with the
calendar, pointing up that it was
a Panhel recommendation.
She felt it "was the best all
spring rush calendar possible."
Praise, Prayer

WASHINGTON (-)-The stormy
era of Senator Joseph R. McCar-

and prayer.

Seventy fellow senators, many
government officials, hundreds of

the late Republican senator from
Wisconsin.
They heard him praised as a
"fallen warrior" arid as a fearless
"watchman of the citadel."

Name Cottrell
Flint Manager
Howard R. Cottrell, auditor in
the University business office, yes-
terday was appointed business
manager of the University's Flint
College, Dean David M. French
announced recently.
Cottrell's appointment will allow
more time for Dean French to
devote to educational policy.
Dean French said the main
Tesponsibilities of Cottrell's job
will center around business opera-
tions and non-academic problems
at the Flint College.

It is a current Broadway hit.
The playwright, who died in
1953, thus joined two other men
as four-time winners in the 40-
year-old history of the awards.
The others were the late play-
wright-biographer Robert E. Sher-
wood and poet Robert Frost.
In another unprecedented cita-
tion, the trustees of Columbia Uni-
versity gave the biography award
to a member of Congress, Senator
John F. Kennedy (D-Mass.), for
his "Profiles in Courage," a study
of some of the great figures in
United States Senate history.
For the fi ''me since 1954,
the trustees passed over the cur-
rent crop of fiction and made no
award for novels.
In journalism, the Chicago Daily
News won the 1957 Pulitzer prize
for meritorious public service for
exposing a 2 , - -million - dollar
fraud in the ofIlice of the state
auditor of Illinois.

Too Much Liquor
The sale of too much liquor at
dances was "the main cause."
Trouble started with the arrest
of a youthful soldier for drunk-
enness.
Other soldiers and some young
civilians described as hooligans
sided with the prisoner.
They closed in on the police
station and hurled stones through
the windows.
A police appeal for calm and
order was ignored. The rioting
mounted. A number of soldiers
were hurt.
Nineteen persons, including an
