tion, University President Harlan Hatcher announced yesterday.
The Lecture Committee is responsible for the annual University
Lecture Course, and 'approves all other speaker' to use .University
facilities.
The two leading male members of Student Government Council
previously have been non-voting representatives to the committee.
Under the new arrangement, two students, one junior and one
senior, will be named with the junior serving for two years. Beginning

RAIN, RAIN, RAIN:
Storms Sweep Texas;
Thousands Flee Homes
DALLAS (P)-Thundering cloudbursts swept down on southwest
Texas yesterday while thousands in four states watched floods swirl
through their homes.
An estimated 7,500 persons fled their residences during the
weekend, taking what possessions they could.
- Fort Worth, with 4,000 flooded out, and Dallas with 2,100, were
the worst hit.
The entire population of 400 was evacuated at Moffet, Okla.
Twelve families left homes at Arkhoma, Okla., just south of Moffet.

Dulles Asked
About Flans
By Adenauert
WASHINGTON (A)-West Ger-
man Chancellor Konrad Adenauer
Monday quizzed Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles about the im-
pact any Western disarmament
agreement with Russia would have
on his country.
The two discussed the disarma-
ment problem during nearly three
hours of meeting at the State De-
partment. It was the second Dul-
les-Adenauer meeting yesterday,
coming after one dealing with Ger-
man rearmament, North Atlantic
Pact military problems and Euro-
pean integration.
Adenauer said the disarmament
conversation was "very frank and
very candid" but he declined to
give reporters any further infor-
mation.
Dulles Prepared
He called the disarmament ques-
4' tion, especially the "lin" between
it and Germany's goal of reunifi-
cation, "an extraordinarily impor-
tant one" for all Germans.
Dulles was known to be ready
in advance of the meeting to as-
sure Adenauer the United States
would never agree to any limited
disarmament agreement w h i c h
would have the effect of freezing
the present East-West split in Ger-
many.
Add Third Meeting
A third meeting with Dulles was
added to the Chancellor's schedule
to enable him to finish the seven-
point agenda which had been ar-
ranged for his three-day stay in
the capital.
Flanked by nearly a dozen top
Esanking aides, Dulles and Ade-
nauer concentrated their initial
session on European problems tied
in with Aaenauer's overriding aim
of merging eastern and western
Germany into a single democratic
nation.
Exam Theft
Reported Here
Examination thieves broke into
Angell Hall mimeograph office
Tl~ursday night to filch copies of
finals being prepared there.
As related by office supervisor
Mrs. Garnet Wubbena, the intru-
der or intruders apparently let
themselves into the office with a
key as no signs of forcing the door
were noticeable.
Once inside, they discovered
keys to steel filing cabinets in
which the exams were stored. In
their haste, however, the pilfer-
ers twisted a key off in the lock
and forced the cabinets open, pre-
sumably with pliers from a nearby
desk drawer.'
Mrs. Wubbena indicated there
was no way of knowing if a theft
actually occurred or if it did,, ex-
actly what was taken. LSA officers
assume one copy was lifted from
the top of each stack of exams.
Discovered at the opening of of-
fice hours Friday morning, the
theft possibility was reported to
University security officers who
inspected the basement office for
clues.
Faculty members whose exam-
inations were affected will handle
the situation as each sees best but
have assured students that steps
have been taken to eliminate any
possibility of undue advantage ac-
cruing to any one student.
As one professor put it, "I
should hate to se students wor-

in 1958-59,t one junior will be
appointed each year.
Student Government Council
had recommended in a report to
the Regents in March that two
students be selected for one year
terms on the committee and,
"they should be full voting mem-
bers and should take active part in
all the decisions and actions of
the committee."
Other Change
In another change. President
Hatcher announced that the five
faculty members will have their
terms extended from four to five
years.
However, service will be limited
to one term, with the president's
prerogative to reappoint members
when continuity of membership
would be essential to discharge of
the committee's responsibilities.
At least two members of the
present committee have served for
approximately 20 years.
SGC Recommendation
The SGC recommendation called
for faculty members to be selected
for three-year non-renewable
terms, which would be staggered
to provide continuity.
The Council, in its report to the
regents, made recommenations
concerning procedures and policy
as well as membership.
SGC suggested there be a "clear
and definitive" statement of the
committee procedures in reviewing

Germans Give
Russia Offer
BONN, Germany uP)-West Ger-
many has told the Soviet Union:1
You agree to reunifying Germany
and we'll consider' a new security
agreement including a European
demilitarized zone.
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer
said in a message to the Soviet
Union that 'Bonn is prepared to
give serious consideration to any
"practical proposal" put forth by
the Russians.
The message grew out of recent
talks by the special four-power
reunification Commission. On the
commission are Britain, France,
the United States and West Ger-
many.
The opposition Socialists de-
scribed the Bonn note as meaning-
less.
The Adenauer note did not de-'
fine the territory to be covered by1
a European demilitarized zone.
A government spokesman notedI
Bonn has pledged that the terri-
tory now occupied by the Com-
munist East German government;
would not be armed if the country
were reunified.

Regents Alter
Russel Honors
Honorariums for the Henry
Russell Lecture and the Russel
Award were increased from $700
to $1,250 and $350 to $750, re-
spectively by the Regents at their
meeting Saturday.
The Henry Russel Lecture, es-
tablished by Russel in 1920, goes
to the faculty member of associate
professorship or higher judged to
have achieved the highest distinc-
tion in his chosen field of scholar-
ship.
The Russel Award goes to an
instructor or assistant professor
whose work as teacher or research-
er is outstanding and promising.

ber Republican Policy Committee
there agreed almost unanimously
to try to put about 300 million back
in the bill.
A group of Democrats quickly
lent their support to the move,
leading some members to predict
that as much as 500 million might
be restored when voting on amend-
ments starts today,
Chairman Carl Vinson (D-Ga)
of the Armed Services Committee
and other Democrats said they
thought the appropriations group
had cut too deeply.
Rep. R..L. Sikes (D-Fla),.head
of an appropriations subcommittee
which handles the Army's budget
requests, told the House "The serv-
ices say they are badly hurt by the
reductions. j
"In some instances I think they
are," he said. "In other instances
I do not agree. I do think this is
the tightest military budget in
years."
"The bill has been too drastical-
ly cut in many instances," Rep.
Joseph Martin (R-Mass), the
House GOP leader, told newsmen.
Rep. Martin said he expected
most Republicans to support the
amendments in the voting this
week but that some Democratic
help would be needed.
'U' To Enlarge,
Scholarship
Aid Program
Steps are being taken to in-
crease the University's scholarship
program as a result of tuition in-
creases, James Lewis, vice-presi-
dent for student affairs said yes-
terday.
An additional $100,000 will be
allotted from the general fund for
Regents' scholarships, he said.
The scholarships are for full
tuition and $500,000 was used to
support last year's program.
In addition to Regents' scholar-
ships, $857,000 from gifts and
grants was awarded to, students
for scholarships, fellowships and
grants during the academic year
ending June 1956.
Lewis said the total has not
been tabulated for this year's
grants and attempts are being
made to get miore funds for the
'57-'58 school year.
Also during ;he year ending
June, 1956, the last one for which
there are complete figures, an ad-
ditional $465,000 was loaned to
students.
Two million dollars was also
paid by the University for student
employment during that period,
Lewis said.

PANHEL CODE:
House Presidents Pass
All Honor' contact Rule
By ELIZABETH ERSKINE
Panhellenic Board of Delegates yesterday passed an "all honor"
set of contact rules.
Ending an hour and a half discussion, house presidents voted to
accept the Executive Council's endorsement of the sorority house
rushing'chairmen's report which states, sorority women will be on
their honor not to pre-rush independent women from the beginning of
registration in September until formal rushing, Feb. 7, 1958."
The motion was passed by secret ballot. After the vote in favor of
unrestricted rules was announced, a new motion giving unanimous
approval and support to the honor code was passed.
Panhel Executive Council clarified their recommendations:
"Pre-rushing is defined as affiliated women persuading inde-
pendent women to join a given house, or notifying an independent
woman that a given house would
like to pledge her."
The term sorority women refers swer
to "both active and alumnae soror- ityme mbhoe:
ity members."
Violations Postal
Violations shall be reported to

I

the Panhel Executive Council.
Penalties, to be decided next fall,
will enforce the council's action.
Every sorority member will be
on her honor to, obey this policy
and to report any action not in
accordance with it. Special respon-
sibility is placed on the sorority
executive councils to see that their
members follow this policy.
Prolonged discussion centered
around whether independent wom-
en should be allowed in sorority
houses or not.
One president felt that it would
put rushees from a "small town"
at a disadvantage because they
would not know as many students
as those from larger towns. An-
other thought it would increase
the tendency to pre-rush.
Amendment Defeated
Following the discussion a mo-
tion to amend the Executive
Council recommendation, "that in-
dependent except those ineligible
to rush and blood sisters shall not
be permitted in sororities except
for an open house in the fall
semester," was unanimously de-
feated.
Speaking for the Executive
Council, Marilyn Houck, '58Ph,
Panhel president said, "We defi-
nitely feel this code can work.
"We have to stand on and en-
dorse our high ideals and stan-
dards. If we can't support it maybe
sororities and fraternities aren't
what they were meant to be."'
Collins Given
Fulbright
Walter S. Collins, teaching fel-
low in' music theory, has been
awarded a Fulbright Graduate
Study Grant for 1957-58 at Oxford
University.
Collins is working toward his
Doctor of Philosophy degree in
musicology and plans to continue
research on English sacred music
while at Oxford.

'Not Enough'
WASHINGTON (0) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
signed a bill carrying $3,192,000,000
for the Post Office Department,
but said this was not enough to
maintain service without substan-
tial cuts.
Accordingly, he said, he will be
back shortly with a 'request that
Congress supplement the sum,
which is for the fiscal year be-
ginning July 1.
He said he wants the people '"to
continue to receive' the postal
service to which they are entitled."
Postmaster General Arthur
Summerfield said the request will
be for another 140 million dollars.
Congress, now in an economy
mood, cut Summerfield's previous
request by 58 million. ,
Summerfield and his civilian ad-
visory board met with President
Eisenhower just before the Presi-
dent issued his statement.

Ike Advisor
Asks 'Sound
Program'
Five-Nation Panel
Meets After Recess;
Stassen Begins Talks
LONDON (M)-Harold E. Stas-
sen told the United Nations Dis-
armament subcommittees yester-
terday the United States is ready
to meet Russia halfway on terms
for a partial arms reduction agree-
ment.
The United States recognizes
there are many difficult points to
be thrashed out involving just
where the halfway point lies,
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
personal disarmament adviser
said.
Seeks Sound- Program
But Stassen declared America
is seeking "in a serious vein" to
find a sound program acceptable
to all nations. He drew a reply
from the Soviet representative,
who said his country welcomed the
manner of the United States ap-
proach to the disarmament prob-
lem.
The five-nation subcommittee
met in an air of expectancy after
an 11-day recess in which Stassen
visited Washington and received
a broad new United States pro-
gram bearing the personal en-
dorsement of President Eisenhow-
er.
No Immediate Details
Stassen did not, however, im-
mediately present details of the
new plan to the subcommittee at
its session of only 20 minutes. In-
stead he began a busy round of
consultations on its terms with
delegates of the othe Western
nations - Britain, Frnce and
Canada.
Soviet Delegate Valerian Zorin
said while he does not know what
the United States plan involves,
he welcomed Stassen's assurance
of a businesslike approach.
Zorin, who returned Sunday
night from Moscow, assured the
subcommittee that Russia will act
in an equally serious manner.
Contractors
Refuse Union
Pay Demands
Striking laborers and carpenters
yesterday were still unable.to agree
with Ann Arbor contractors on
wage hikes.
The strikers have been away
from work for two weeks. Work-
ers are holding out for 18 cent an
hour raises.
Contractors have offered a 15
cent an hour raise to the carpen-
ters and 12% cents an hour to the
laborers.'
Carpenters union and contrae-
tors' representatives appeared in
court yesterday to dispute the
legality of Washtenaw County
Contractors' Association's repre-
sentation of county contractors in
collective bargaining.
No action was taken as the
court ordered the representatives
to reappear at 9 a.m. today.

tivities Building, according to
Janet Neary, '58, executive vice-
president.
The Council will also approve
next year's activities. Action on
the calendar had been postponed
last week until several controver-
ies could be settled.
At the same meeting, the Coun-

IN THE FALL:
Students To Buy Health Insurance'

A voluntary sickness and acci-
dent insurance program is al-
most assured to be available to
University students by Septem-
ber.
Chairman of Student Govern-
ment Council's health insurance
committee, Scott Chrysler, '59, re-
vealed that committee members
are waiting for agencies to pre-
sent bids from various health in-
surance companies.

REGENTS ACCEPT:
Gifts Total $140,860
University Regents accepted a total of $140,860.13 in gifts, grants
and bequests Saturday at their May meeting.
The grants, numbering 64, range from $25,000 to $100 with sources
ranging from the Ford Foundation and anonymous donors. They
cover such varied fields as wood technology and psoriasis.
Two grants totaling $28,500 were accepted from the National
Science Foundation, Washington, D. C. One of $25,000 is to support
research on protozoan genetics and the other, a grant of $3,500, is
for emergency support of the Michigan Mathematical Journal.
Research in Mathematics
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Inc., New York, gave three
grants amounting to $22,165 to support fundamental research in
mathematics and chemistry.
A grant of $8,000 was received from the Ford Foundation, New
York, to provide grants-in-aid for graduate students in Asian and
Near Eastern studies during the 1957-58 academic year.
Establishing a fellowship for medical students and a research
project in obstetrics and gynecology, the John Harper Seeley Founda-
tion, Ann Arbor, gave $7,000 to the University.
The Esso Research and Engineering Co., Linden, N. J., donated
$5,000 for a post-doctoral fellowship in chemistry and .$500 to the
Denartment of Chemistrv.

The committee will then choose
the bid that satisfies University
needs the best, Chrysler explained.
Careful Study
In order to have the plan ready
for the fall semester, the Univer-
sity, SGC and the insurance com-
pany will promote the program
through summer soliciting of all
students.
"Students will be encouraged to
consult with their parents and
carefully examine the advantages
of the group coverage plan before
purchasing it," Chrysler said.
The objective of the original
plan was to have full coverage of
all students, but after conferring
withnational insurance agencies,
receiving bids and working out
coverage, the University found
such a program could not be bud-
geted into present University fi-
nances.
Encourage Participation
SGC's committee is trying to
get coverage in which the pre-
mium cost will encourage maxi-
mum student participation and at
the same time, not sacrifice cov-
erage terms.
A 12-month plan with a premi-
um not to exceed $15, blanket ac-
cident reimbursement would be
about $3000.
Sickness benefits might include
hospital reimbursements at the
rate of $17 per day for 60 days, '
CaUlnmh~Iai1 Q-ti-iup1erut

and surgical reimbursement up to
$300.
Student coverage will augment
health service coverage. At the
present time, Health Service pays
for 15 days in a ward and routine
doctor fees. Students, however, are
expected to pay for extra charges.
Chrysler said the committee ex-
pects a 25 to 30 per cent student
participation next year, with sub-
stantial increases, yearly.

PUPPY LIFE:
Delta Upsilon Welcomes 'Pledges'

Although the rushing season is'
over, the men of Delta Upsilon
fraternity are welcoming ten addi-
tional members.
The new pledges comprise a
litter of St. Bernard puppies born
to Brandy, the DU mascot, early
Sunday morning. The sire is a
resident of an upstate kennel.
T h e r e was some confusion.
Major, mascot of Lambda Chi
Alpha fraternity, claimed paternity
of the puppies, even having his
owners send DU a box of cigars.
DU refuted his claim, but kept the
cigars.
Brandy herself, took her first
attempt at motherhood stoically.
According to Don Troelesen, '58E,
Master of the Hounds, the event
was discovered accidentally at 3
a.m. Sunday, after a pair of pup-
pies had already been born.
