Collins Quits Job
Resignation Effective March 26;
Opens Eighth Seat in Spring Voting
Student Government Council President Joe Collins, '58, resigned
from 'GC last night.

because of the large field of candidates running in the elections March
25 and 26. His resignation becomes effective March 26.
As a result, eight students instead of seven will be elected to SGC
in the elections with the final two who are chosen serving half-year

President Dismisses}
LegalityA rguments
WASHINGTON ()-President Dwight D. Eisenhower brushed
aside the legality issue yesterdayand informed a news conference that
Vice President Richard M. Nixon would assume all-inclusive powers,
Including authority to si'gn bills, in event of presidential disability.
President Eisenhower dismissed the idea that Nixon should take
an oath as acting president, should a disability emergency arise. He
said he and Nixon assume that "we are men of good faith, and we
are honest men that are trying to do what is correct for the country."

Adopts Git
Of Sculpture
The class of '58 will present the
Universityswith a bronzesesculp-
ture for the interior of the Under-
graduate Library as their senior
gift, according to Gift Committee
member Robert; Z i e g e 'm a n,
The sculpture has been ap-
proved by the Senior Board and
University officials, pending col-
lection of enough additional class
dues to cover the cost.
A sketch of the work was ap-
proved at a meeting of the Gift
Committee with University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher, assistant to
the president Erich A. Walter and"
Vice President in charge of Stu-
dent Affairs James A. Lewis.
Ziegelman said the', sculpture
was "acceptable to all," adding
that Prof. Fredrick Wagman,' di-
rector of the Undergrduate Li-
brary, was especially enthusiastic.
The sktatue, of vari-colored
bronze, will stand in the library's
corner lounge, which is officially
designated as an exhibition area.
The project is being handled by
Prof. Thomas McClure, of the
architecture college, who drew up
the preliminary sketch. Prof. Mc-
Clure has done similar work be-
fore, including sculpture for the
inside of a new Dearborn office
Completion date has tentatively
been set for "July 1 or earlier."
The project will cost the class
$1,500, excluding the base. Ziegel-
S man said they are hoping the
plant department will build a base
for them.
The senior class treasury at
present contains $1,248, of which
$88 was collected during Febru-
ary registration. Ziegelman esti-
mated that about $500 more is
needed to cover the cost of the
sculpture plus an i n d e f i n i t e
amount for the Alumni Fund. -
In order to collect the neces-
sary amount, Senior Board re-
cording secretary Joan Wood, '58,
announced the class will conduct
a fund drive continuing until
spring vacation.

Cyrano Chosen Sole Survivor of 'Balloon Debate',

Cyrano de Bergerac was the last survivor of the International
Students Association's leaking balloon last night.
Asserting that "love is the ultimate dream and goal of every man
and woman and I am the true giver of ultimate love," de Bergerac,
defended by Thomas David, Grad., of India, won the ISA Balloon
"Everything is only to serve or enhance this love," he added. "The
'others here tonight are merely mediums which aid in the search for
love. I symbolize the giver of ultimate love because I gave my loved
one the chance to find her true love."
Seven Contestants Featured
The debate featured seven contestants, each vying for the sur-
viving position in the hypothetical balloon. Each speaker was assigned
a final position by a vote of the audience.
Machiavelli, whose case was presented by Fredrico Spantigati,
Grad., of Italy, was chosen to jump first, followed by Laika, the
