Sen. Johnson Forecasts
Mid-East Bill Approval
WASHINGTON )-Senate approval of the modified Middle
East resolution was forecast yesterday by Senator Lyndon Johnson
(D-Tex), the majority leader.
Johnson said he favored the legislation, which proclaims the
readiness of the United States to fight Communist aggression in the
Middle East if President Dwight D. Eisenhower deems it necessary.
He predicted it would be passed by the Senate in substantially the
same form it came out of the Foreign Relations and Armed Services

UN Refuses Red Order
Of Immediate Debate

On Eisenhowe

-Daily-Norm Jacobs
CITY'S KEY-Governor Theodore Roosevelt McKeldin (right) received a key to the city from
Ann Arbor mayor William E. Brown, Jr. (left) yesterday afternoon when the Maryland governor
arrived at Willow Run Airport. Later, at a Lincoln Day dinner in the League, the dynamic speak-
er urged more Republican support of President.-Dwight D. Eisenhower's policies - what he called
"modern solutions for modern problems." Alternatives to Eisenhower policies, Gov. McKeldin sug-
gested, are "some wildly radical schemes, some new and unheard-of system of government more
fantastic even than Socialism and Communism" or "antiquated and outworn political ideas that
voters rejected in five successive elections." Addressing approximately 600 GOP workers and lead-
ers, he asked that the Republican party "continue to do what it has been doing at the behest of the
most successful leader it has been blessed with in this century; but to do it with a hearty good-
will, with a vigor, with an enthusiasm and pride that will convince the most skeptical Doubting
Thomas that here is the party of today and tomorrow, the party that dares look the facts in the face."

Plant Predicts Possibility
Of AllOtAthletic Aid
The Big Ten may imitate other conferences and permit all-out
aid to athletes if the compromise "equalization" plan fails to pass,
Prof. Marcus Plant, of the law school predicted last night.
Speaking at the SGC-sponsored forum discussing "Financial Aid
to Athletes," the University faculty representative to the Big Ten
Athletic Conference described the plan as allowing a school to grant
an athlete money equal to his "actual financial need .. ." the dif-
ference between his school expenses and his ability to pay.
The Big Ten faculty representatives approved the proposal at
their Dec. 8th meeting, sent it to member schools for examination and
----will take final action Feb. 22.

Galens Decide
To Quit Spring
Campus Drive
Galens, honorary medical so-
ciety, yesterday announced its de-
cision "not to participate this
year" in the spring Campus Chest
The decision, presented at a
meeting of the Campus Chest
Board, was in the form of a written
statement signed by Robert Kretz-
schmar, '57M, Galens' president.
Robert Jewett, '58M, presented
the Galens' decision to the Board
and described the statement as
representing the views of the "en-
tire organization.".
Withdraws Name
Galens wishes to withdraw its
name from use in Campus Chest
publicity, Jewett said, and Cam-
pus Chest is now "under no obli-
gation" to give the alloted drive
funds to Galens.
Reasons for the withdrawal from
Campus Chest were given as a "full
calendar" for the Society and its
members in the spring as well as
time already spent collecting funds
for hospital children in December.
"When, the Society engages it-
self in a project, it expends 100,
per cent effort toward the success
of that project, and at this time
we would be unable to so."
Fund Drives
Galens is entirely in accordance
with unification of fund drives if
they are complete and include var-
ious other local and national
drives, the statement summarized.
Harlan Givelber, '57, chairman
of the Campus Chest Board, asked
Jewett if the Galens' decision pre-
eluded participation in Campus
Chest in the future.
"I think perhaps with re-sched-
uling Galens may participate in
the future," Jewett replied.
Jewett also said if Galens did
participate in Campus Chest next
year it might consider scheduling
its city drive to coincide with the
campus drive.
'U' To Explain

Still Backs Plan
Prof. Plant said though he fav-
ored no athletic aid, he backed the
plan "because it's a compromise
that will help stop the trend to-
wards undue financial aid for
Opposing the plan and any
scholarships that do not aid stu-
dents solely because they are stu-
dent's, Prof. George Peek, of the
political science department, said
a "No-contact, No-offer" policy is
the only feasible solution to ath-
letic recruiting.
Defends Aid
Defending athletic bids, Dick
Balzhaiser, Grad, said, "If an ath-
lete is supposed to live up to his
academic requirements, as he does
at Michigan, and must solve his
financial needs, he has an almost
insurmountable problem." The for-
mer fullback said a player must
put in about four and one-half
hours a day practicing.,
With a football player required
to devote fifteen weeks to the sea-
son and preliminary practice, he
feels he should have some compen-
sation for his time, Balzhaiser de-
He added that the University
also benefits for aiding athletes
since the intra-mural and ath-
letic programs are supported by
student receipts. Balzhaiser also
cited sports as an aid for publicity
and stimulation of alumni activ-

Ero llment
Fall Levels
Three University schools and
colleges this semester increased
their enrollment over record-
breaking Fall levels, Edward G.
Grosebeck, director of the- Office
of Registration and Records an-
nounced yesterday.
The graduate school, the School
of Business Administration, and
the education school reported
registrations in excess of both the
totals for last January and Sep-
Grosebeck called the second
jump "exceptional, and . . . con-
trary to the usual pattern."
Late registration this semester
was markedly decreased, he added,
I"primarily due to increased con-
venience of registering at the
Winding up the task of issuing
final enrollment totals, the regis-
trations director reported this
semester's classification period "a
smooth and efficient operation."
For the first time, any course
in the University (with the stan-
dardexception ofwthe law and
medical schools) could be elected
in Waterman gymnasium. Previ-
ously, the engineering school clas-
sification was held in a separate
building, necessitating special tele-
phone hook-ups between the two
areas. 0
"We are very pleased with the
speed of the operation," Grosebeck
said. "Even the 147,000 sections of
railroad tickets were alphabetized
and distributed across campus the
day after registration."
Methods used in other schools
range from the unpopular regis-
trar's assignment (when the stu-
dent merely submits a list of ap-
proved courses and is arbitrarily
assigned hours and days by ad-
ministrative clerks) to elaborate
photographic systems costing "tens
of thousands of dollars more than
our own," Grosebeck said.

Fall TuitionI
A top University administrator
yesterday confirmed reports that
increases in student fees for next
fall are now under consideration.
The administrator, who asked
not to be named lest he embarrass
the University's position in forth-
coming legislative hearings on its
budget, said that no fee increases
are now budgeted. They might be
made, however, if the legislature
does not approve the full Univer-
sity budget or if new items of cost

tion of $26,000, was made.
The subject of tuition increases
for state-supported educational
institutions was raised recently by
members of the legislature, who
spoke in terms.of 20 or 30 per cent
hikes. Michigan State University
President John Hannah comment-
ed that state institutions could
raise fees "without much diffi-
culty if they raise them together."
While technically only the Re-
gents of the University could raise
fees here, the legislature could
force such action upon them by

Rush Calendar
Still Undecided
By Sororities
Panhellenic Research Committee
was still unable yesterday to pre-
sent an organized 1958 rushing
calendar for delegate approval.
Planning a new calendar became
necessary after Student Govern-
ment Council approved spring
rushing for sororities last March.
At that time, a proposed sched-
ule was to include a two-and-one
half week formal rushing period
with pre-registration in December.
A research Committee was form-
ed tosconsider calendar changes
and other revisions that the spring
rushing system would bring about.
Marcia Highlands, chairman of
the committee said as the calendar
now stands, rushing would start
at the beginning of the 1957-58
second semester. Yesterday's hold-
up came about, in part, because
the policy-making group is "run-

O'Brien Finds UN Valuable
In Discussion of Problems
The greatest present value of the United Nations lies in its being
a meeting place for the countries of the world to talk out their prob-
lems, Conor Cruise O'Brien, delegate to the United Nations from the
Irish Free State said yesterday.
Delivering a lecture sponsored by the Michigan Student Bar As-
sociation O'Brien likened the UN to a bazaar, "a bazaar where opin-
ions are exchanged and felt."
It was regretable, he said, and even deplorable that the UN did
not and could not take action in Hungary during the recent revolt.
But even though it did not take direct action, the debates and reso-
lutions passed by the General As-

Complaint As 'False
But Votes for Debate
The United Nations Steering Com-

doctrine and other alleged aggres-
sive acts by the United States.
The committee voted 8-6 against
the Russian move after United
States Chief Delegate Henry Cabot

as "stupidly false" and a "gigan-
tic cock and bull story."
Lodge, however, conformed to
the standing U.S. policy in favor
of airing all charges against the

Soviet delegation for a debate.

"The Russian action in Hun-

tudes of some of the neutral coun-
tries and the UN made them
aware of conditions causing these
changes", O'Brien said.
He recalled that when he asked
some recently freed Hungarians
during the revolt if the resolutions
were worthless, they replied, "No.
The resolutions cause Russia to
lose face and ease the pressure on
us and the Poles."
