Riesman Suggests New 'U' College


Panty Raiders Storm ill

JDY AimVIVImo JLUK%,INrzt, l

"Enterprise" on the part of the
faculty is more important than
the form of the program of the
college in question, he continued,
but enterprise is often stifled by
faculty tenure.
"A college doesn't stay experi-
mental long," Prof. Riesman said,
"just as a sect becomes a church."
Faculty members participating
in a unified program such as that
at Chicago where all social sci-
ences are combined must be or-
ganized as a staff, he said, with
"young men coming in" as col-
leagues rather than teaching fel-
Thus, according to Prof. Ries-
man, a large university such as
ours must hope the enthusiasm
generated by a comparatively small
program such as the one once used
at Wisconsin will spread beyond
the program to the university as a

PARIS (/P)-The government of
Premier Felix Gaillard fell last
night, brought down by a National
Assembly attack on his Tunisian
policies and their American-Brit-
ish links.
The Assembly, echoing with
cries of anti-American sentiment,
rejected 321-255 Gaillard's call for
acceptance of a United States-
British plan for settling the
French-Tunisian dispute. Gaillard
immediately resigned.
Explains Action
Announcing his action to re-
porters, Gailla'rd said: "In the
present circumstances it is in the
country's interests that the crisis
which opened be closed as rapidly
as possible.
Though the vote was not on a
formal motion of confidence, Pres-
ident Rne ty did not try $a
persuade Gaillard to hold fast and
ride out the defeat.. The margin
apparently had been tod gietW' or
Coty accepted the resignation.
He asked Gaillard, however, to
stay on as caretaker - the usual
procedure in such cases-until a
new government can be formed.
Technical Issue
The issue defeating Gaillard was
a technical one. It involved his bid
to shelve five .motions from the
extreme leftand right which criti-
cized his policy. Gaillard had de-
clared he would consider the re-
sult an implied issue of confidence.
The government defeat came
after a stormy day of debate in
which both houses of Parliament
rang to an outburst of anti-Amer-
ican attacks.
Sought Backing
Gaillard had called Parliament
into special session in an attempt
to win backing for his acceptance
of the British-American good of-
fices mission aimed at restoring
French-Tunisian relations.
He said the terms were accept-
able and added there was really
no alternative except to send
French troops back into the former
protectorate of Tunisia, already
protesting French garrisons still
based there.
Gaillard had proposed leaving
the question' of control of the
Tunisian Algerian frontier for
handling outside the good offices


But he said others were waste-
ful and some were included against
advice based on "careful study
and considered judgments of the
professional services and other
executive agencies concerned." 1
Republicans, meanwhile, return-
ed to the attack on another big
measure-the bill by Sen. William
Fulbright (D-Ark.) to lend up to a
billion dollars at cheap rates to
states and municipalities to finance
all sorts of local public works,
Sen. Knowland said the Repub-
licans would try to cut the bill's
total in half. It has been -halved
once before, from two billion to.
one million dollars, in the Senate
Banking Committee.
Proposed Construction
The bill proposed future con-
struction of 150 navigation, beach
erosion, flood control and power
projects all across the country. On
April 2 the Senate voted 52-11 to
accept a compromise version draft-
ed by a Senate-House committee.
As for the bill to speed up high-
.way construction, Sen. Knowland
said President Eisenhower has
been wooried because he didn't
like its proposed division of state
and federal financing.
The bill provides the federal-
government would put up $2 to
every $1 by the states for work in
the coming year on primary, sec-
ondary and urban federal-aid
No one was greatly surprised
when President Eisenhower ve-
toed the water bill. He had turned
down a similar measure and for
similar stated reasons in 1956.

AAUP Tells
How To Vote
The University chpter of the
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors met last night to
instruct its delegates how to vote
on a recent AAUP report at its
annual convention.
However, the group decided not
to divulge what its instructions

suspensions of three University
facunty members and the subse-
quent dismissal of two of them
in the spring of 1954.
-The report says that Prof. Mark
Nickerson then of the pharmacol-
ogy department, Prof. Clement
Markert then of the zoology de-
partment and H. Chandler Davis,
then of the mathematics depart-
ment were treated in a manner
"inconsistent with the principles
of academic freedom and tenure."
All three men had refused to
testify before the House Un-Amer-
ican Activities 'Committee.
The AAUP had released a 60-
page report on the case before
vacation. The local chapter met
last night to consider what parts
of the report it would accept and
which it would reject.
Dulles Blasts
WASHINGTON P) - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles
charged Russia yesterday with
prostituting diplomacy for propa-
ganda purposes and thereby en-
dangering international peace.
At a news conference, he.called
on Moscow to halt its outpouring
of public letters and diplomatic
notes if it genuinely wants to ease
tensions with the West.
The United States has always
felt, Dulles said, that exchanges
between heads of government
"were designed, generally on a
highly confidential basis, sincerely
to achieve some practical result."
Dulles defended the Eisenhower
administration against criticism
it has failed to meet the Kremlin's
successful propaganda campaign,
He conceded that Soviet propa-
ganda "initially is having a kind
of field day" in newly independent
countries but he questioned wheth-
er the United States should seek
to match the Russians in this field.
A more effective way must be
found to deal with Soviet propa-
ganda, he said, and eventually the
.answed will be developed.

Unions Remain

C ptol Problem Report ed

... ,,..

By The Associated Press
Washington's labor pains continued to grow yesterday as bills,
court decisions and testimony, added to the tangle of union problems.
Dividing 2-1, the United States Court of Appeals ruled the Senate
investigations subcommittee exceeded its powers in investigating mis-
use of union funds.
The decision wiped out the contempt of Congress convictions of
two officials of the Teamsters Union, Frank Brewster and Nugent
LaPoma, both of Seattle.
Not Current Committee
The decision did not involve the powers of a special Senate com-
mittee now investigating misdeeds of labor and management. That
committee was created in January,

take a lead sufficient for ultimate
victory. Ron ' Jernigan, who re-
lieved starting hurler John Herrn-
stein in the third, led off the inn-
ing with a single.
He advanced when catcher Gene
Snider was safe on an error, and
then both scored on successive
safeties by Ernie Myers and Bob
Kucher, shortstop and second-
sacker, respectively.
Snider Triples
The death blow was dealt the
following stanza when Snider belt-
ed a bases-loaded triple down the
right field line. Scoring on the
smash were leftfielder Jim Dickey
and Jernigan, who both got on via
walks, and Dave Brown, hard-
hitting second baseman,,who hit a
Herrnstein, making his first start
on the mound since throwing a
no-hitter on the southern trip
more than a week ago, had no
chance for a repeat performance
when the second man in the bat-
ting order, Len Grabowski, nicked
him for a single.

Coach- Ray Fisher because of a
sore shoulder, after pitching the
next inning. It was nothing serious,

1957, after jurisdiction of the sub-
committee had been challenged by
Brewster and others.
Meanwhile, a bill to police labor
unions and punish wrongdoing by
their leaders was introduced in the
Senate Tuesday by Sen. John L.
McClellan (D-Ark.).
The bill would give the secretary
of labor broad new powers to in-
vestigate and clean up union af-
fairs. It would punish as felonies
bribery and extortion in connec-
tion with union activities, as well
as falsification of union books and
Removes Exemption
Other provisions would strip un-
ions of their federal tax exemp-
tions if they 'violated the proposed
new code, and deny them any
standing before the National Labor
Relations Board.
At a Senate inquiry yesterday,
three truck drivers said they were
brutally beaten for opposing Ray
Cohen when he took over Phila-
delphia Local 107 of the Team-,
sters Union in 1954.
The hearing also produced evi-
dence of forged endorsements on
union checks issued by Cohen and
the local's president, William
Grace, and evidence that financial
records had been "kited" to give
someone a $4,003.75 profit..
Cohen is a right-hand man of
president of the Teamsters. Wit-
nesses testified that as secretary-
treasurer of Local 107, Cohen runs
the show in Philadelphia.
Vincent A. Minisci told the Sen-
ate Rackets Committee ,that be-
cause of his opposition to Cohen
strong-arm men worked him over
on two occasions. Finally they
drove him out of the state in fear
of his life, he said.

Liquor Plan,
A motion urging that students
more than 21 years old be allowed
to drink in private apartments or
rooms will be considered by Stu-
dent Government Council at 7:30
p.m. today in the Council room
of the Student Activities Bldg.
The .motion calls for a recom-
mendation to. the faculty Com-
mittee on Student Conduct that
"student quarters" be defined to
exclude private residences, which
now are included in the University
regulation prohibiting "the use or
presence of intoxicating beverages
in student quarters."
The rule shall then apply only
to University student housing (i.e.,
dormitories, fraternities, sororities,
league houses, and co-operative
houses) ," the motion states.
The Council wll also hear a
report from Scott Chrysler, '59BAd,
on the old University Calendar
Committee, of which Chrysler was
a student member.

send a man 150 miles into space
one year from the word go on
such a project.
The Russians, he said, already
have the capability of shooting a

As for who will shoot a rocket
to the moon first, Von Braun said
Russia may well try before the
United States. He said it will be
many months before this country
is ready for an attempt.

Kelly Punctures Outer

Space's Importance
"Inner space" is much more important to the world these days
than outer space," cartoonist Walt Kelly said yesterday.
"What happens when we are so desperate to achieve outer space
that we forget inner space?" the creator of "Pogo" asked his Rackham
Lecture. Hall audience. The legendary Abominable Snowman of the
Himalayas, which cartoonists have made into a symbol of the
cold war, typifies the current world situation, he said.
Snowman Represents Ignorance
The Snowman exists at the Summit and represents ignorance,
from which, Kelly added, comes either fear or "a quick laugh at the
other's expense." "Our Western friends are amused with our preoccu-
pation with the Abominable Snowman, and would like to see us solve
such problems as Little Rock instead," he said.
Kelly recently returned from a trip around the world, which he
made "just ahead of Sputnik, with a difference in altitude.""
The world needs more true humor, he reflected, and Sputnik
