Five-Year Agreement

WASHINGTON ()-The United
toeand Britain disclosed yes-
┬░terday United States atomic mis-
siles -will be based in England,
w.ith the understanding that a
joint decision would be necessary
to pull the trigger.
A five-year agreementv effective
last Saturday was made public. It
c limaxed 11 months of United
States-British negotiations flowing
from an accord reached by Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower and
British Prime Minister Harold
Macmillan at \Bermuda last March
The pact is the prototype of
others the United States hopes to
sign with France, Italy, Greece,
Turkey and any other interested
members of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization.
President Eisenhower and other
NATO government chiefs voted at
Paris two months ago that NATO
should have intermediate rafige
atomic missiles based in Europe.
For security reasons, some de-
tails of the United States-British
agreement were suppressed. These
covered such questions as how
many missiles and how many men
would be involved.
%owever, it has been reported
that 60 Thors, the United States
Air Force intermediate range bal-
listic missile, will be sent to Royal
Air Force squadrons.
Britain will provide the bases
uhder RAF control. The nuclear
warheads will be held in United
States custody. !

GRAND RAPIDS (P)-Delegates
representing craft and industrial
unions today hammered out a pact
creating a united labor movement
in Michigan.
Guided by two aides of AFL-CIO
president George Meany, a special
state convention moved 'towards
quick adoption of a constitution
for a state organization merging
the AFL and CIO unions into "The
Michigan State AFL-CIO."
Meany's right hand men, Peter
M. McGavin and R. J. Thomas,
said they were pleased with the
turnout of delegates representing
craft unions.
The AFL Michigan Federation
of Labor (MFL) voted to boycott
the merger. Th MFL also voted
to ignore Mean's order to expell
the Teamsters. The Teamsters are
not eligible for membership in the
state AFL-CIO as a result of their
expulsion by the AFL-CIO on cor-
ruption charges.
The new state central body will
represent at the outset more than
600,000 0IO unionists and about
121,00o AFL members. McGavin
said he expected holdout AFL
groups to join later. One of the
largest groups currently holding
out is made up of building trades-
men.
Meany's enforced merger of
Michigan labor groups is expected
to set a pattern affecting mergers
in other states such as New Jersey
and Rhode Island that have been
slow to merge oit a state level.

DEAN REA:

A taproom serving beer in the Michigan Union might not be a
bad idea to reduce illegal drinking among students, Dean of Men

of Wisconsin where the restrictions are less rigid, the taproom in their

He described Mack as an old

there ever should be any cost to
the individual owners.
Appearing before the House

and "a depraved person."

IKidnapping
Rebels Mar
Cuban Race
BULLETIN
HAVANA (P)-Th Argentine
embassy announced early today
that the Cuban rebels have re-
leased Juan Manual Fangio, the
world's No. 1 racing driver kid-
napped Sunday night.
HAVANA (A') - Cuba's biggest
auto race played out to a quick
and tragic end yesterday.
The climax was a weird out-
come of the battle being waged
from underground by rebel forces
against the government.
Five Cuban spectators were
killed and 40 more were injured
or dying -victims of a race car
that' went out of control.
Experts said the race, the $10,-
000 Gran Premio, wasesabotaged
with oil slicks by rebels of Fidel
Castro.
Kidnapping Unsolved
The kidnapping of the world's
greatest race driver by rebels re-
mained unsolved last night.
The race was already stripped
of its star by the kidnapping of
world champion driver Juan
Manuel Fangio of Argentina. It
was calledeoff shortly after it got
off to a delayed start.
Within minutes after they
roared away, the powerful cars of
27 top drivers skidded crazily over
an oil slick surface on the 'tight
turns of the seaside Malecon
boulevard course.
Car Spun Like Top
The casualties came when a
young Cuban driver, Armando
Garcia Cifuentes, braked on a
curve near the United States Em-
bassy.
His Ferrari spun like a top,
veered sharply from right to left,
then swung back to the right side
of the road raceway and crashed
into a truck.
The car, which had been travel-
ing at nearly 100 m.p.h., then
rolled over three or four times and
landed in the heart of a crowded
stand. One of those killed by the
plunging car was a woman.

'NORMAL':
Semester
Flunk-Outl
Near 570
By THOMAS HAYDEN
The University flunked out
approximately 570 students last
semester, according to incomplete
figures released yesterday.
This total was nearly doubled
by Michigan State University dur-
ing its first term this year, when
an unprecedented 1,000 students
failed.
Assistant Dean James H. Rob-
ertson of the literary college said
the University figures represented
no substantial increase over last
year. "It was a steady, normal
February percentage," he said.
No Policy Change
Thomas H. Hamilton, -MSU's
vice-president for academic af-
fairs, claimed no official policy
change was responsible for the
increase at East Lansing.
He said the trend stemmed from
the faculty's concern about the
world situation and Russian edu-
cational advances.
, Dean Robertson, pointing to ~a
"sound academic program," de-
clared a toughening of policy here
would be unnecessary.
"There was no need for the
Sputniks to shake us up," he said.
Two basic reasons were offered
by Dean Robertson for the steadi-
ness in the failure rate at the
University.
1) Very few freshmen are lost
after the 'first semester, the Uni-
versity preferrng to "give them a
year's chanc':"
2) "When we admit a person,
we can be fairly certain he will
make the grade. We're right in our
judgement on nine out of 10
freshmen."
The majority of failures were in
the engineering and literary col-
leges.
Breakdown Given
Although final statistics will not
be completed until the end of this
week, Associate Dean Walter J.
Emmons of the engineering college
expects nearly 270-or eight per
cent of 3,300 enrolled-to have
failed.
Literary college failed 208 of
7,300 students.
Failure totals in the University's
other schools and colleges were as
follows:
Business administration, 45;
architecture school, 19; pharmacy
college, 5; education school, 5;
dental school, 3; music school, 3;
natural resources school, 1.
Incomplete Figures
Final figures from the medical
school were incomplete but "10 or
11" failures were expected by the
recorder's office.
No "home actions" were re-
ported by the schools of social
work or public. health. Nursing
school totals were unavailable.
Law school does not authorize
any failures until June.
Judiciary Asks'
Drinking Talks
The Joint Judiciary Council has
forwarded a resolution to Univer-
sity Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis requesting a
"general discussion" of the Uni-
versity drinking regulations.
According to Judiciary chairman
Michael Jacobson, '58, the move
came as the result of "many com-
plaints before the council and the
feelings of the council members"

concerning "the types of regula-
tions imposed on the students."
Vice-President Lewis acknowl-
edged receiving the recommenda-
tion but said that plans for any
discussion were "very nebulous."

Records Stolen
From WCBN
Phonograph records, tentatively
valued at $250, were stolen from
the South Quadrangle studio of
the Campus Broadcasting network
last week, a station member re-
ported yesterday.
The informant, who asked not
to be named, said 50 records had
"probably been stolen" from the
station between 3 a.m. and noon
Saturday.
It had to be during this time, he
said, because some of the missing
records were being used just prior
to the station's closing at 13 a.m.
Anyone who had a duplicate key
could get to the records, he added.

By McElroy
WASHINGTON (P) -Secretary
of Defense Neil McElroy yesterday
all but excluded the single military
chief concept from recommenda-
tions he expects to make for
reorganization of the national de-
fense establishment.
The Pentagon's civilian boss dis-
cussed the situation upon his re-
turn from a long weekend at
Ramey Air Force Base, Puerto
Rico, with a group of consultants
and senior military advisers.
McElroy told reporters "excellent
progress" had been made, but that
no attempt was made to reach
conclusions or agree on any
recommendations for changes in
the defense structure.
Asked whether creation of a
single miltary chief, as advocated
by some critics of the present or-
ganization, had a large place in
the Puerto Rico discussions, Mc-
Elroy said: "That ideas was not
stressed on me by my consultants."
He said also that, although some
of the people interviewed previous-
ly about their views on defense
reorganization had argued for a
single military boss, in Puerto Rico
he had not heard any very strong
views on the subject and that it
was not under predominant con-
sideration.

RIESMAN DISCUSSES YOUTH:
College Stuent Labeled Organizaton Man'

By ULDIS ROZE
Chicago Maroon
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first
of a series of two articles received
through the Big Tn News Service.)
The college student of 1958 is
in many ways an "organization
man," according to University of
Chicago social scientist David
Riesman.
The student's response to his
academic environment and cur-

detail and enthusiasm than he can

Marital relations are importantj
to students: almost all seniors are!
either married, engaged, or fore-
seeing marriage. Most expect good-
sized families.
Students want a station-wagon
type, college-educated wife, not
the silent childbearer of other
times.

And they wanted the suburbs
for their children, not themselves,
Riesman said.
In 1958, this ambivalence has
disappeared; the family is defi-
nitely first and career second.
There is little identification with
one's employer or vocation. There
is a loss of belief that work can
be an end in itself when done for
a large concern.
Though some students have an

ethic by, a social ethic, becoming
ersatz families to their employees.
This underplays the importance
and excitement of work itself.
Riesman argued that the present
student attitudes are not without
their admirable facets. "Students
today have less of the compulsive
attachment to work that older
generations had.
