IOWA CITY - By capturing six firsts in seven qualifying events,
and the top two places in the final all-around competition, defend-
ing champion Illinois took a commanding lead in the 50th Big Ten
gymnastics meet at the Iowa Fieldhouse Gymnasium.
The Illini, seeking their ninth straight title, were paced by
Olympian Abe Grossfeld, who took a first in the all-around competi-
tion and four firsts in the qualifying round. Bob Diamond and Frank

On Rise
Non-Michigan residents com-
prise approximately 40 per cent
of the 25,661 students now en-
rolled in University credit pro-
grams, according to Office of Reg-
istration and Records Director
Edward Groesbeck.
A five-week spring enrollment
report revealed 21,756 students
now attend classes at the Univer-
sity's Ann Arborpcampus - 728
higher than the previous spring
Off-campus registrations totaled
3,905 with 391 students enrolled
at the University's Flint College
branch and 3,514 others taking
credit courses at University cen-
ters throughout the state.
Enrollments High
Horace H. Rackham School of
Graduate Studies enrollments, in-
cluding the Ann Arbor campus
and other centers, reached a high
of 5,342. The figure represents an
8.3 per bent increase over last
spring's mark of 4,932.
University male students still
outnumber women by a two to one
margin. On-campus records listed
14,749 men and 7,007 women, ac-
cording to Groesbeck.
The female enrollment jumped
312 but failed to meet the male
increase of 416 over last spring.
Seven Per Cent Increase
The engineering school registra-
tion records showed 3,002 students-
enrolled-a 7.6 per cent rise. The
literary college enrollments also
jumped three per cent to bring
the total enrollment to 6,754.
The largest decrease in students
came in hospital training with a
26.1. drop. Groesbeck termed this
"not very significant" due to the
fact that only 23 students were
enrolled in the credit program
Some Decreases
Other significant decreases in-
cluded: College of Architecture
and Design-573 students enrolled,
a 4.5 per cent decrease; College ofj
Pharmacy-149 students enrolled,
a' decrease of eight per cent;
School of Medicine-1,203 students
enrolled, a decrease of 3.7 per
cent; and Law School-794 stu-
dents enrolled, a decrease of 7.5
per cent.
Significant increases included:
School of Education-874 enrolled,
an increase of 3.1 per cent; School
of Natural Resources -176 en-
rolled, an increase of 6.7 per cent;
and School of Social Work-164
students enrolled, an increase of
25.2 per cent.

Dies at 84
NEW YORK (R) - W. C. Handy,,

the age of 84.
He was the man who shaped the
rhythm of the Negro race into1

the blues.

House Told
Fast Action
WASHINGTON (P - Fast ac-
tion to meet "an immediate and
urgent need" for unemployment
benefits was urged on a critical
House committee yesterday' by
Secretary of Labor James P.
Mitchell, opening witness at a
Ways and Means Committee hear-
ing on President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower's proposal for temporarily
extending the duration of jobless
benefit payments, ran into ex-
tended questioning by both Demo-
cratic and Republican members.
The labor secretary said the
number of unemployed reaching
the end of their benefits is ex-
pected to show a sharp upturn
this month.
He placed the number at 147,000
in January and 145,500 in Febru-
ary, and said the March figure is
expected to total 187,500. For the
entire year, he estimated the total
will be 2,300,000.
Mitchell said the administra-
tion's program for limited exten-
sion of benefits under existing
state systems "will take care of
the major part" of the current un-
employment problem.
President Eisenhower has pro-
posed advancing federal funds to
finance a 50 per cent increase in
the number of weeks unemployed
workers covered by jobless insur-
ance could draw benefits. This
would mean an additional 13
weeks in states having a126-week
benefit period, for example.
Rep. J. W. Byrnes (R-Wis.)
voiced reluctance to embark the
government on an emergency pro-
gram, saying that once started
"they're very seldom terminated."
Mitchell agreed that, "Certainly
we run that risk, but I don't think'
that should be the reason for not
doing something now."

Panhel Okays
New Sorority
Panhellenic Association passed a
motion Thursday to accept and
support a group of women at-
tempting to form a new sorority
on campus.
Carol Shapiro, '60, president of
the group' of approximately 30
women, said that they had written
to the national Phi Sigma Sigma,
whose membership Is "predomi-
nantly Jewish," abouf reactivation
on this campus.
Phi Sigma Sigma was active at
the University until late in the
1930's when it went inactive be-
cause of financial reasons.
If this group decides to affiliate
with the sorority, it would go
active after its constitution had
been approved by Student Gov-
ernment Council and the sorority's
national convention.

Extra Ballots in Box
Students had access to extra
ballots in the All-Campus elections?
Tuesday and Wednesday.
One girl who manned a polling
booth reports that people who were
voting tried to stick extra ballots
in the ballot boxes as they passed,
and also attempted, to hand her+
two ballots placed on top of each+
other to pass for one .
However, she did not try to stop'
it, because the ballots were not
punched and were therefore in-
Booths Unattended
Extra ballots could be picked up
at unmannedpolling booths. One
poll tender reports that he had
signed up to work at the Engine
Arch table until 11:30 a.m. When7
nobody came to relieve him, he
stayed until 12 noon, but had to
leave for lunch, because he was1
assigned to another booth at 12:30
p.m. He left the booth unattended.f
Some booths were left unattend-
ed Tuesday night at 5 p.m. Poll
tenders left the tables before the1
elections director had come aroundj
to pick up the ballots and boxes.
East Engine ballot box was1
manned Tuesday almost exclu-
sively by members of four fra-
ternities, all of whom had mem-
bers running for some position.
Thirteen out of the fifteen people
who signed in at this box were
members of one of these groups,
according to the poll sign up sheet.
Stuffing Reported
Wednesday, the percentage on
this box was almost as high. This
is the box, where one poll tender
reported ballot stuffing for Dennis
Roy, '59, who was running for
literary class president.
Wednesday, The Daily received
an anonymous phone call from a
poll tender who said he worked at
a booth where the other tenders
agreed to permit each individual
to insert extra ballots for the per-
son whom he was backing. Thet
caller said it was just like "logl
rolling. "
At the East Engineering booth1
two names of graduate studentst
were signed to the sign up sheet,t
although the students say they did
not man any booths.
Roger Mahey, '61, polls director,1
reported Thursday that the master
ballot talley sheet for the elections
disappeared Tuesday night. Thisl
sheet lists what numbered ballotsI
went to which booths. Mahey said1
that he did not want to say the
sheet was stolen, but he empha-t
sized that it was not lost.f

Reports Distributed
Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-

Appropriations Committee, in-
troduced the bill and at the same
time distributed financial reports
on the University and Michigan
State University.
He charged that both schools
had a large holdover of money
after the fiscal year that ended
last June 30.
"MSU showed $2,209,705 in the
general fund holdover on June 30,
1956 and $2,267,758 last June 30,"
Sen. Porter said.
"But the total research and ex-
tension fund balance unspent had
grown from $751,328 in June 1956
to $1,253,537.
Balance Grew
"The University had a balance
of $2,164,037 in June 1956 which
grew to $2,273,857 by last June.

Dean Rostow Calls Boom Years 'Invigorating'

Characterizing the last 12 to 13
boom years as "invigorating,"
Dean Eugene V. Rostow ended his
series of five lectures yesterday by
calling the boom "a vindication of
full employment."
The Yale University Law School
head said, "The forces making for
a leveling down are strong but the
forces making for a leveling up are
even stronger."
Finishing on a note of optimism,
the guest lecturer for the ninth

private action "is blurred and has
always been blurred."
Goal Stipulated
Stipulating that it was the goal
of the Employment Act of 1946 to
achieve full employment without
inflation, Dean Rostow criticized
government action saying the pol-
icy of the control of money has
been "too restrictive."
"We should enlarge our output
and through imaginative govern-
ment action eliminate waste,"
Rostow added.
