T TGdates to Tell
yHe Left
John Gates, former editor of th
Communist Daily Worker, membe
of the Communist-Party Nationa
Committee and an inmate of th
Atlanta Federal Penitentiary fo
five years following his 1949 con
viction under the Smith Act, wil
speak at 8 p.m. today in the Uic
Ball Room.
"The ideals which originally at
tracted me to communism seem t
me the ones that give meaning t
life, and they are worth trying t
realize. I left the Communist Party
because it no longer offers a wa:
to further those ideals," he wrot
inhis pamphlet "Evolution of ,an
American Communist."
Gates resigned from the part
and the editorship of the now de
funct Daily Worker on Jan, 10.
Joins In 1931
He had joined the movement In
1931 when a student at City Col
lege of New York, then left schol
in 1932 to spend four years or
ganizing steel workers and the un
employed in Youngstown, 0.
In 1937, he joined the Abraham
Lincoln Brigade which fought for
the Loyalists in the Spanish Civi
War. He relates in his pamphle
that Wihen asked "How come i
took you so long to learn abou
Stalin and what went wrong in
Russia," Gates replies "it looked
nothing like that in Spain."
Recalls Remark
He recalls the remark of a Com

and reestablishment of these allow-
ances as specific items in the ap-
propriation bill.
Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-
field), committee chairman,' told
Hannah at the conclusion of the
two hour hearing that the com-
mittee was promising nothing.
"We'll have to wait and see,"
Porter said. The committee will
hear tomorrow from the Univer-
sity, which also is seeking restora-
tion of proposed budget cutbacks,
and perhaps more money.
vn Gov. G. Mennen Williams rec-
rt ommended $27,779,214 in operating*
8- funds for MSU, which was given
$26,326,500 by the legislature for
ill 1957-58. The appropriations com-
a- mittee has submitted a bill calling
ill for $25,315,000 in the coming fiscal
Id year.
i's Hannah said he recognized the
i- responsibilities of legislators in
dispensing public monies and levy-
is ing taxes to meet bills incurred,
he and was aware of the state's
r- straitened financial situation.
"But," he said in conclusion,
be "if we don't try to present the pic-
is ture as we see it, we shouldn't by
er where we'are."
s' The university laid stress on the
qt salary item, which he said basi-
e- cally was sought for a four per
cent pay increase.,
1d Particularly, he said, the money
d- was needed to keep "bright young
a- faculty members" who otherwise
might be enticed to other institu-
[11' tions, and to maintain the' high
ey quality of the MSU staff.
Hannah said regardless of

lished rank and tenure in the two

Join .Russia
There is some possibility that
France might revert to an alli-
ance with the Soviet Union, a
British member of parliament'
said here yesterday.
William Yates, emphasizing
that he was speaking as an in-
dividual and not as a member of
the Conservative party, claimed
that during the present Algerian
crisis, changes in the French gov-
ernment have been "for the
The time could come, he said,
when France might break with
NATO and revive its traditional
policy of relations with the Soviet
Hits Algerian Crisis
Yates labelled the Algerian cri-
sis as "disorganized butchery"
which gives Communist subvert-
ers in the Near East "a marvelous
horse to' ride on."
The French government has re-
fused to grant independence to
Algeria, which they claim as part
of metropolitan France. As a re-
sult, the Algerians have openly
rebelled with the aid of Tunisia,
and Morocco.
'French Can't Have Everything'
"The French must learn that
they can't have everything," and
consequently give in to Algerian
demands for independence, Yates
At present, he continued, no
rebel leader would ever accept
France's word in any negotiation,
because in (their view, they have
shown themselves to be untrust-
worthy before in similar situa-
tions, particularly in Syria.
However, Yates was convinced
that the Algerians would accept
any declaration of intention by
United Nations Secretary-General
Dag Hammerskjold.
France May Withdraw Demands
The hope of the United States
and Great Britain, he said, lies
in the chance that France will
withdraw its demands, and allow
Tunisia, Morocco and Algeria to
confederate. This government
would maintain friendly relations
with the NATO alliance although
not joining, he added.
On the other hand, he warned,
if the French do not change their
position, the Algerians might set
up a rebel government in exile.

The Assembly Dormitory Coun-
cil yesterday accepted a resolution
by the Assembly Executive Board
supporting the University policy
on roommate placement.
Assembly President Marg Brake,
'58, explained that the Board felt
that a resolution was needed since
"recent agitation on, campus has
led many to accept the false as-
sumption that segregation is prac-
ticed in University housing.
"Some groups are beginning to
say," she said, that no choice of
roommate or expression of prefer-
ence should be allowed to fresh-
men. This, she added, would mean
that students would be placed in
the order in which they apply, re-
ducing them to the often com-
plained of numbers in still another,
Resolution Supports 'U'
The resolution supports the Uni-
versity philosophy allowing stu-
dents freedom in the area ortheir
personal relationships, and the
policy statement of the Board of
Governors of Residence Halls
promising to respect any prefer-
ence expressed by entering stu-
dents in regard to roommates in-
sofar as administratively feasible.
The right of the individual
houses to decide their own meth-
od* of roommate selection for re-
turning women was also affirmed.
To Present to Board
The resolution will now be pre-
sented to the Board of Governors
of Residence Halls.
The Council also joined IHC in
recommending a study committee
to see about the possibility of coed
housing on campus.
The nominations for first vice-
president of Assembly Association
were announced at the meeting.
Elsie Sherer, '59, and Christine
Wells, '59Ed, are the two candi-
dates who have been selected from
those who petitioned. Only one
candidate, Pat Marthenke, '59,
petitioned for Assembly president.
These two positions will be voted
on at next week's meeting, and the
results will be announced at
League Night.
King's Brother
Given Power
Over Arabia
CAIRO (A' - King Saud has
turned over to his brother, the
pro-Egyptian Crown Prince Veisal,
full control over the oil-rich Saudi
Arabian kingdom's foreign, finan-
cial and internal affairs.
Cairo's press, reporting this yes-
terday, said Feisal presented his
elder brother, Saud, with a list of
strong demands which, if authen-
tic, would indicate Feisal is emerg-
ing as the kingdom's strong man.
The Saudi Arabian delegation at
the United Nations confirmed the
transfer of internal and domestic
power to Feisal.

Three 'U' Students Launch First Campus Missilelang

A team of three University students launched the campus' first
missile yesterday.
The sleek space projectile streaked high into the heavens but
failed to go into orbit. Using a secret chemical as fuel, it reportedly
reached a height of 200 feet.
Resembles Army Rocket
The "Alpha-I Ballistic Missile" faintly resembled the Army's first
successful rocket-the Jupiter C.
After a momentary delay caused by high winds and a lack of
experience, rocket experts Allan Stillwagon, '59, Dennis Benson, '58,
and Gerry Hendershott, '59, made hurried last-minute preparations.
The rocket, aimed sky-ward, rested on its launching pad near the
Natural Science building. A crowd of curious rocket-watchers hovered
about the launching site anxiously awaiting the blast-off hour.
