tem, but only provided for ques-
tionnaires to be sent to a scienti-
fically selected sample of literary
college students. n-
"Without a referendum before-
hand, setting up the honor system
would be aig mistake," Goldman
told the Council.
Goldman also said any honor
system should pervade the entire
campus, and not be restricted
solely to examinations. He cited
such areas as class attendance,
football tickets, and signing in
and out in the women's dormi-
tories as other places where an.
honor system should be installed.
An honor system is ineffective
unless students regard any viola-
tion or failure to report a viola-
tion as a breach of honor, Gold-
man said. '
"Rebellion" Needed-
Ron Gregg, '60, chairman of the
study committee, said he doubted
if anything less than a "minor
rebellion" would suffice to indi-
cate student interest in an honor
system. No referend .4 would in-
dicate great confidence in a sys-
tem, he said.
Many faculty members have
told Gregg student support of

Worker 'Tax Holiday'
WASHINGTON (') - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and his
economic advisers talked about
remedies for the recession yester-
' day but decided' to wait awhile
before proposing any tax cut,
"No decision regarding taxes has
been made," Secretary of the
Treasury Robert Anderson report-
ed after this latest top-level con-
ference on what to do about the
slump"in business and jobs.
Anderson added: "Whatever de-
cision. regarding taxes is taken
will be reached only when the
impact of current developments
on the future course of the econ-
omy has been clarified and after

Reuther Suggested Halt
Walter Reuther, addressing an
AFL-CIO economic conference in
Washington, said that if other
antirecession moves fail, the gov-
ernment should halt tax with-
holding from workers' pay for 90
days. The president of the United
Auto Workers said this would
boost 'the nation's purchasing
power by 500 million dollars a
Reuther told a reporter that the
withholding tax could be suspend-
ed for a period of less than 90
days, if desired. In any event, he
said the forgiven tax should not
have to be made up later.
Yesterday afternoon the Senate
voted 93-1 to put Congress on
record as favoring the fastest
possible speedup on civil construc-
tion projects that have already
been appropriated for.
Johnson Comments
Sen. Lyndon Johnson of Texas,
the Democratic leader, said, in
apparent reference to the an-
nouncement Tuesday of 5,173,000
persons being unemployed, that
"we can't ignore the shocking news
of yesterday."
The "no" vote was cast by Sen.
Cotton (R-N.H.), who says he
doesn't think much of pump prim-.
ing in general.
/Meanwhile, President Eisenhowerl
sent Congress a request for
$85,603,000 in additional appropri-,

Margaret Brake, Assembly president, yesterday attacked the

"This group seems to be taking all the back roads they can find,"
Miss Brake said. The group should have collected all the facts before
doing anything else, she added.

Citing Ann Arbor's inability to
compete financially with other
'cities for qualified teachers, Super-
intendent of Schools Jack Ezay
defended a proposed two and one-
half mill school tax increase at
last night's Board of Edu'ation
An increased science arid langu-
age program for next year in the
city's junior high schools was un-
veiled to the crowded meeting.
But requests from citizens attend-
ing for an even more rigorous
academic program at all levels
prompted Elzay to point out that
it requires top-flight teachers to
pursue any such curriculum.
He stated that Ann Arbor is
currently seeking a physics teach-
er but is able to pay only $4;900
starting salary for the position.
"Seven thousand dollars is the
minimum for which we can attract
a really qualified person," he de-
Elzay outlined a proposed plan
for salary and personnelllncreases
which would help alleviate the
situation but which would depend
on passage of the millage proposal
which will go before the voters in
a special election on March 31.
He went further by stating that
"in next year's proposed budget
without the millage increase and
doing only the things which must
be done, we would come up $104,-
000 short."

Censorship Imposed
The suspension of constitutional
guarantes is effective 45 days. It
meant immediate censorship of
the press, radio and TV, including
outgoing foreign news dispatches.

freedom from arrest without war-
rant were cancelled for the.45-day
period, giving military forces and
police a freer hand to crush ac-
tivities deemed revolutionary or
The decree in effect rules out
election campaigning, since all
mass meetings are prohibited..
The action probably means can-
cellation of a threatened anti-
government demonstration by 18,-

ered to smash it.

Debater Say
U.S. ,Harms,
"The United States is doing in-
finite harm to its ideologicat war-
fare by believing that 'my enemy's
enemy' is mny friend'," Beverly
Pooley, Grad., said at a Lawyer's
Club debate last night.
Supporting the proposition
"Present United States foreign
policy serves the ultimate ends of
world. Communism," Pooley ex-
plained that both America and
Russia realize that another world
war would be impossible. -
Serves No Purpose
Further continuation of the
arms race serves no purpose be-
cause a military war would mean
destruction of both countries, he
argued, therefore the next war
will be one of ideologies.

Bunker, Grad., from England and
Jochen Frowein, Grad., from Ger-
Frowein disagreed with Pooley
and said that in East Germany

He continued that since the
news is suppressed in the satellites,
people want to listen to interna-
tional news.
Cites 'Time Lag'
Bunker commented there is a
time lag in American foreign pol-
icy caused by the fact that the
United States' policy is arrived at
democratically rather than the
work of a totalitarian government.
In the case of the Algerian situ-
ation, Bunker commented that the
United States could not have

gerian Nationals because of its
alliance with France and the im-
plications of that alliance in
While American foreign policy
did not gain any great victory, he
continued, it did not become dis-
credited as it would have in any
other course of action,
Pooley pointed out that in their
own way, American manufactijrers
selling their products are doing'
exactly what the United States
foreign policy 'should be doing.
"I don't mean to say you should
be selling the wonders of American
capitalism," he continued, "but
rather America's most important
possession - the Constitution."
