Miss Hess studied at the Guildhall

Of Mediator
Avoiding work stoppages is the
principle aim of any mediator,
Joseph F. Finnegan told the Uni-
versity's Fourth Annual Confer-
ence on Labor and Industrial Re-
lations yesterday.
Finnegan, Director of the Fed-
eral Mediation and Conciliation
Service, noted most mediation
work does not involve strike situa-
tions, but rather "routine collec-
tive bargaining situations with
neither side getting all it wants."
Although saying the Service
program "has met with a high de-
gree of success," Finnegan said it
can be improved "not by increas-
ing the number of mediators,"
but through the development of
"a smaller, harder-hitting, better-
trained organization."
Mediators can no longer be
merely "meeting-callers," Finne-
gan said. He explained the "grow-
ing sophistication of both labor
and management bargaining rep-
resentatives" has meant that me-
diators must make a positive con-
tribution to a dispute.

John Gates
To Appear
March 25
John Gates, former Daily Work-
er editor, will speak on "Why I
Left the Communist Party,"
March 25, in the first lecture of
the Student Government Council
Forum program.
Gates' approval by the Lecture
Committee was announced yester-
day by SGC Administrative Vice-
President Maynard Goldman, '59.
SGC established a Forum Com-
mittee last May under Union
President Don Young, '58, to
bring interesting and controver-
sial speakers to the campus, to
supplement the University Lecture
The committee has contacted
other spea-ers besides Gates, in-
cluding Russell Kirk, author of
"The Conservative Mind," Frank-
S. Meyer, associate editor of Na-
tional Review, and Ray Wilkerson,
of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored
Gates, however, is the only
speaker who has been definitely
scheduled so far.
Gates resigned from the Com-
munist Party recently after the
party decided to discontinue pub-
licataion of the Daily Worker, due
to its inability to make money.
Earlier, the Lecture Conmittee
had said better speakers could be
selected by the Council for its
program, but indicated it would
still approve the choice of Gates.
He will speak in the Union Ball-

Bulganin stuck to the frequently

an agenda for heads of govern-
ment to discuss.
The wording on this key point
differed slightly from Russia's

authorities said the net result was
the same.
Bulganin resubmitted these nine
proposals which had already been
branded unacceptable as topics for
