The committee, which is to report to the Council by April 30, will

Nuclear War
Unlikely Now
An all-out nuclear war is the
greatest danger to the United
States but the least. likely threat,
Henry'A. Kissinger said last night
as he asked, for a United States
foreign policy that would be more
adaptable to -Russian challenges.
The associate director of the
Harvard University Center of In-
ternational Affairs said the United
States strategic policy of massive
retaliatiion made all instances of
Soviet aggression so far "marginal
-cases." Marginal cases he defined
as cases that can't be provided for
with an already-formulated stra-
tegic policy.
As the power of nuclear weapons
grow the will to use them grows
less, Kissinger said. Lacking any
other doctrine When a .crisis either

Cites Marginal Cases
Kissinger asked for a policy that
would make marginal cases rare
and which would enable the United
States to apply power to specific
His policy, which he discussed
in general ternms, was to develop
graduated methods of containing
the Soviets.
He attacked the notion that
diplomatic settlements are due
solely to diplomatic skill, saying
that the possibility that force
would be used was behind a good
many settlements.
There is a fear in the United
States of not taking every Soviet
offer at face value Kissinger said.
Despite the changes that have
occurred in Russia the Soviet for-

Reliance on Massive Retaliation
He said reliance on massive re-
taliation has weakened the United
States alliance system. To the ex-
tent that nations believe that the
United States is their sole means
of defense he said they will mini-
mize their contribution to the de-
fense effort and rely on United
States troops in their countries to
provide the "tripwide."
The other alternative for na-
tions under the present strategy
is to try to achieve a retaliatory
force of their own-which adds
little to the deterrent power of the
free world, Kissinger said.
A contributing factor to the in-
security of modern international
relations, he said, is that smaller
nations often get the two great
powers into positions that neither
would choose by themselves.

Coty Seeks
New Basis
For Cabinet
GoVernment Falls
On African Issue
PARIS () - President Rene
Coty began a search yesterday for
some sort of parliamentary coali-
tion to govern France, amid
gloomy predictions of a long-term
Cabinet crisis.
With Premier Felix Gaillard's
five-month-old Cabinet routed by
the combined attack of conserva-
tives ands Communists on a wave
of anti-American sentiment, the
President's search for a National
Assembly majority promised to be
an anguished one.
Important and even painful con-
sequences of this new crisis lay
ahead for France, and most po-
litical obsrevers seemed pessimis-
If the next government, when it
finally is formed, is more to the
right than the last - which seems
likely - a hardening of French
policy toward North Africa may
well lead to increased French-
American strain.
This was the fifth time that a
French government had been
thrown out on a North African
This time Gaillard had backed
a U.S.-British good offices solution

IFC To 'Try

Organized open rushing will be

plan, which will enable men in-

terested in open rushing will notify
the Council and then hold open
houses on, the nights of April 28
and 29.
It is not necessary for men in-
terested in open rush to register
with the IFC. "All they have to do
is walk into the houses they are
interested in," Howard Nack, '60,
IFC rushing chairman-, said.
Fraternity rushing at the Uni-
versity is conducted on two levels.
First, at the beginning of each
semester, is the formal rushing
period lasting about three weeks.
After that is open rushing.
During open rush a man can
visit any house he wishes. He does
not need to register with the IFC
as hc, does during formal rush. The
lack of interest in open rushing
has been a great problem, Kolb
The problem with open rush, un-
til now, Kolb said, is that very few
fraternities or men take advantage
of this period.
Through further organization of
this period, he continued, "we feel
that a still greater number of fra-
ternities will be able to meet and
pledge interested men."
Kolb called on fraternities for
participation. "A slovenly rush on
the part of those fraternities that
will be participating will . . . in
the long run, be quite detrimental

to the system as a whole.

Racial Fight
Mrs. Stone
"Four years ago I n e v e r
dreamed that Virginia would re-
sist the Supreme Court decision
so firmly," Mrs. Kathryn Stone,
Democratic legislator from Vir-
ginia, said last night.
Mrs. Stone conceded that she
has not stood alone in' her fight
against racial inequality in the
South, but made it plain that the
prevailing climate of opinion in
Virginia, as elsewhere in the
South is generally against her.
The native Iowan, who has
adopted .Virgina as her home,
said that she "loves" Virginia, but
does not condone many of the
policies taken by some of the
people and politicians of that
As a result of the persistence of.
the prominent segregationalists in
Virginia. and other Dixie states,
excluding North Carolina, many
of the public schools are and will
continue to be closed, she said.
"The closing of public schools is
becoming more and more com-
mon,' 'she said.
The established families will
continue to send the children to,
private institutions, particularly,
at the secondary school level, Mrs.
Stone continued, but eventually
there will be a clamor for the re-
-establishment of the public
At present Mrs. Stone's district,
Arlington, is as she termed it,
"fraught with tension." She laud-
ed the federal circuit judges who
have been "patient and firm" in
their decisions.
The anti-barratry laws are bar-
relled through the Virginia legis-
lature by Sen. Byrd and others,
she said, with little threat of re-
sistance. Usually measures in-
tended to promulgate integration
are introduced, but they' are sel-
dom even considered.
Mrs. Byrd referred to the "fa-
natical" resistance to integration;
as the "unfinished business of the'
Civil War," She stated that, al-
though four generations have fol-
lowed the Civil War era in the
North, because of the tradition of
late marriages in the. South only

Neil McElroy dispdlayed charts and

of new arms, from pocket rockets
to the intercontinental ballistic
missile with a range of 5,000 miles
or more.
In most cases they were dual-
purpose weapons, capable of fir-
ing either conventional or nuclear
explosives. They included ground.
to-ground, ground-to-air guided
missiles and artillery-type arms.
The first of the intermediate-
range ballistic missiles, capable
of hurling nuclear devastation on
targets 1,500 miles away, will be
in place on a base in Britain be-
