JERUSALEM (A)-Israel put off any momentous decision on the

Instead, she asked Washington for clarification. of the United

Take Action

Charging both local and nation
al Republican administration
are not "imaginative, representa
tvefficient, popular, humani-
tarian or positive," Prof. Samue
J. Eldersveld of the political sci
ence department yesterday kpy
noted the County Democratic
Convention.
Prof. Eldersveld, democratic
candidate for Ann Arbor mayor
also decried what, he called "The
GOP block and gap approach" t
governmental problems. "This
means you don't do anything un-
til there's a crisis."
AA Bus Situation
Citing Mayor William E. Brown
Jr.'s handling of the Ann Arbo
bus situation, Prof. Eldersveld
said Mayor Brown put off con-
sideration of the problem "until
he realized that there was a 15
day period between March 5 and
April 1 when the city might not
have any bus service."
He emphasized the split between
the Republican "special interest'
approach and the Democratic
"modern, crusading leadership
dedicated to all the people in the
country."
47 Per Cent
Although a Democratic candi-
date for mayor received 47 per
cent of the vote last election, he
said, there is only one Democrat-
1c City Council member.
"The government, he contin-
ued, "is not efficient; there is no
careful, systematic plan.ing or
coordination."
Touching on local human re-
lations problems, Prof. Eldersveld
said although the new city char-
ter recommended formation of a
human relations commission, no
such commission has yet been.
formed.
GOP Negative
Charging the Republicans are
negative and regressive, he said,
"We continually have to go
through that tortured process of
dragging them into the 20th cen-
tury.
"Our system," he concluded,
"was designed to protect not the
strong, but the weak. I! hope the
Democratic party will fight for
'~ the human rights of individua s.'

Government Sources
, After more than 24 hours' si-
rlence, government sources opened
eup against Dulles suggestion as "an
' American attempt to settle the
s Palestine problem to Israel's bene-
t-."
One official source singled out
the Dulles plans as "obvious favor-

Joe Collins, '58, was elected third
president of Student Government
Council by acclamation yesterday.
d Janet Neary, '58, was then elect-
ed by acclamation to the vice-
presidency, the office vacated by
Collins.
The new cabinet members, the
only nominees for their respective
offices, took over amid applause
and immediately turned to the re-
port on Sigma Kappa.
Bill Adams, Grad., whose resig-
nation necessitated the special
presidential election, stayed on the
council through the Sigma Kappa
debate.
The outgoing president later
cautioned the council, "always re-
member, in your considerations
and deliberations, that you are a
student government body."
Miss Neary then presented
Adams with a gavel, symbol of his
three years in student govern-
ment. She told the council, "there
is a great deal that Bill has done
for you that you will never know."
Although no other nominations.
were made, John Wrona,-'57, asked
Tom Sawyer, '.58, before themet
ing began, if he would run for the
vice-presidency. Sawyer declined
and later nominated Miss Neary.
Lew Engman, '57, remains treas-
urer of SGC.
Collins, a 21-year-old social
studies major from Clark Lake, is
a member of Sphinx, junior men's
honorary, and has served two
years as an elected member of
SGC.
Collins was elected SGC vice-
president in November, having
held the office of treasurer.

'Communistic Doctrines
Boomerang in Hungary'
By ALLAN STILLWAGON
Communist indoctrination, despite ten years of complete control,
'ailed in Hungary, Prof. George Katona told a "Town Talks on For-
,ign Policy audience" last night.
"De-Stalinization was the starting point of freedom," Prof. Ka-
:ona said. "We now know that while absolute terror is effective as
ong as it remains absolute, a little freedom is a very dangerous thing."
Hungary's revolution was "good for the world," Vice-President
ichard M. Nixon's advisor on psychological refugee problems de-
,lared.
Indoctrination Boomerangs
"We know now that indoctrination can boomerang, that human
;ouls cannot be killed by controls, that human rights are believed
worth fighting for." q

BONN, Germany - Chancellor
Konrad Adenauer yesterday re-
jected the proposal of Soviet Pre-
mier Nikolai Bulganin that East
and West Germany should nego-
tiate to reunite the divided coun-
try.
The 17 million Germans in that
zone must be given back their
freedom, the Chancellor declared.
BUDAPEST-Informed sources
said yesterday Communist Pre-
mier Janos Kadar has offered to
negotiate with two non-Commu-
nist parties, the Peasants and the
Smallholders.
It was not clear, however,
whether leaders of those once-
powerful parties would be willing
to negotiate with the Russian-
imposed Kadar regime.

Those who fought for their
rights, against control of move-
ment, of association, against cur-
tailment of newspapers are those
who crossed the borders into free
Austria, Prof. Katona reported.
National Bloodletting
Revolution was tragic for Hun-
gary, he adjudged, "a national
bloodletting without precedent.. .
160,000 fled of whom the majority,
were freedom- fighters, afraid to
leave their houses after the fight-
ing."
"In any group of 160,000 people,
there will inevitably be criminals,
Communists and Fascists," Prof.
Katona reminded. "But the ma-
jority of the refugees are young,
from 20 to 30 years old.
President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er's suggestions were singled out
as necessary United States moves.
Prof. Katona advised that more
refugees must be admitted than
present laws permit, that oppor-
tunities for ,their receiving citi-
zenship must be created, and that.
we must help Austria by supply-
ing the money which will enable
them to take in even more es-
capees from Red tyranny.

Group Votes 12-5 Favoring Proposal
Seeking Discrimination Answer
By VERNON NAHUGANG
Student Government Council yesterday gave Sigma Kappa soror-
ity until Sept. 1958 to remove its "discriminatory membetship policies
or lose University recognition.
By a roll call vote of 12 to 5, SGC adopted the Sigma Kappa com-
mittee 'majority report and its Recommendation "A". The other
four plans of action were disposed of through a confusion of par-
liamentary procedure that left council members shaking their heads.
Major issue in the debate was the sorority's national conven-
tion, scheduled for summer 1958. Bill Adams, Grad., said committee
members felt "an immediate convention would be the best solution."
Discrimination Question
Maynard Goldman, '59, declared "the chapter at Cornell has twice
asked that discrimination questions be discussed on the floor of the
national convention, and it hasys

UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. (P--
The United States yesterday de-
nounced Soviet charges of United
States aggression as "absurd" and
a "mockery" of the purposes of the
United Nations.
A delegation spokesman madej
his comment as the United States
completed hurried preparations to
blast back at the Soviet Union in
the Steering Committee of the
United Nation Assembly.
In a letter to the Assembly
president, Prince Wan Waithaya-
kon, of Thialand, the Soviet dele-
gation accused the United States
T u e s d a y of aggressive action
around the globe.
Threat to Peace
It said .these actions "create a
threat to peace and security" and
ask the Assembly to consider the
complaint without delay.
The Western reaction was quick,
the United States delegation
spokesman retorted that "we feel
that at the time the General As-
sembly is dealing with an agenda
containing crucial matters, to tax
it with absurd charges is a mock-
ery of the United' Nation's pur-
poses."
Commit Aggression
The Russians also said the
United States committed aggres-
sion ,on a global scale by setting
up military bases in Western Eu-
rope, Turkey, Iran, Japan and
Okinawa which were capable of,
handling atomic weapons.
They said United States bases
in France, Britain, West Germany,
Italy, Turkey and Iran constitute
a menace to peace.

not been done. It is my belief
there is no change in attitude in
the sorority." I
When the inconvenience of
holding a convention earlier than
1958 was pointed out, Anne Wood-
ard, '57, suggested that "for the
good of the Whole, several chap-
ters could overcome the incon-
venience of having a convention
this summer."
As finally adopted, Recommen-
dation "A" states:
Until Sept. '58
"(SGC) shall allow Sigma Kap-
pa sorority until September of
1958 to resolve the violation de-
termined on December 5 1956.
"At that time University recog-

Following is the roll call vote

solve its violation.)

tional Sigma Kappa unless the
sorority takes action to remove
such discriminatory membership
policies."
Attempts by Adams and As-
sembly President Jean Scruggs,
'58, to amend the recommendation
failed, but the word "such" in the
second sentence was added at the
suggestion of Dean of Women
Deborah Bacon.
Other recommendations, of-
fered as minority reports and dif-
fering from Recommendation "A"
in leniency, were tabled or voted
down. The tabled motions never
gained the necessary vote to be
removed from table.
Recommendation 'B'
Recommendation "B," which
would have prevented the Alpha
Mu chapter from perpetuating its
membership after Sept. 1957 in
addition to the provisions of
Recommendation "A," was voted
down, 12 to 6.
Adams, President Joe Collins,
'58, Goldman, Miss Scruggs, Daily
Editor Richard Snyder, 57, and
Miss Woodard voted for Recom-
mendation "B" over "A."
Snyder, who led the minority
fight for stronger action against.
Sigma Kappa, reminded SGC it'
was dealing "with a sorority in
violation of University regula-
tions."
Tolerant or Democratic
Are you being tolerant or demo-
cratic only when it's convenient
or inexpensive? Snyder asked the
council.
Local Sigma Kappa President
Pat Miller, '58Ed, told the council
Recommendation "A" would be
of most value to the sorority.
In other action yesterday, Miss
Woodard announced an exchange1
student program with the Univer-
sities of London, Cambridge and

WASHINGTON (A)-A revamp-
ed Middle Eastern resolution, pro-
claiming the readiness of the
United States to fight Communist
aggression in the strategic area if
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
deems that necessary, was approv-
ed yesterday by two powerful Sen-
ate committees.
Democrats did a sweeping re-
write job on a key section of the
Eisenhower resolution at a joint
session of the Foreign Relations
and Armed Services comx.Aittees,
Stricken out was language "au-
thorizing" President Eisenhower to
use armed forces in the Middle
East, but sponsors of the change
quickly explained this was not
done with the idea of denying him,
this power.
On the contrary, they contended
he already has the power, and
Congress cannot constitutionally
give him something he possesses.
The new language, it was ex-
plained by Sen. Hubert H. Humph.
rey (D-Minn) puts the responsi-
bility up to President Eisenhower
for triggering any armed United
States action in the Middle East,
while serving advance notice that
Congress is back of him.

On East Coast
f NEW YORK t ) - The second
dock strike in three months yes-
terday tightly gripped Atlantic
ports from Maine to Virginia.
Mile upon mile of busy water-
front subsided to almost ghostlike
silence.
The International Longshore-
men's Assn. Ind. said its renewed
contract strike was 100 per cent
effective among its 45,000 dockers.
No one disputed the estimates.
Peace talks continued. The na-
tion's top labor peacemaker, James
F. Finnegan, national director of
federal mediation, remarked:
"Things are rocking along sat-
isfactorily but no speed records
are being broken."
Finnegan flew in from Wash-
ington Monday in a vain effort to
head off the strike.
It got under way, however, with
the expiration yesterday of an 80-
day Taft-Hartley injunction that
interrupted last November's wat-
erfront strike.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY:
Cynicism Supplants, Sweet Sentiment.

By MARY LOUISE SAUER
Sneering little men bearing
cryptic messages have all but
erased the hearts and flowers from
Ann Arbor's Valentine's Day cards.
It seems it's not quite late
enough in the year for spring's
fancy thoughts of love-the big-
gest volume of Valentines sold
(say city merchants) are the hum-
orous and insulting remembrances.
Sweet and sentimental cards
still have their place in today's
festivities, though. Many a young
coed's heart will warm to the
sender of a lacy, satin symbol of
love, or of a heart-shaped box of
chocolate candy.

"Won't you take me to your Val-
entine?" his sign asks.
Local men's stores have their
eye on the humor-lovirig coed.
One window boldly displays two
pair of "Valentine's Day" men's
shorts. One is a rather innocuous
red - on - white striped creation,
splashed with tiny hearts.
The other works arithmetic
problems with two hearts. One plus
one equals two with connecting
arrow, one minus one equals one
broken to bits, and one times one
yields a brood of tiny little hearts.
Real Sellers
But the real sellers are still the
cards. Every store which features
them has been mobbed for the
last week, though the inevitable
last-minute rush descended yes-'
