Summit Conference
May Become Reality
States and Russia may finally
open diplomatic negotiations next
week on problems involved in or-
ganizing a summit conference, and
possibly improving East-West rela-'
The White House disclosed yes-
terday that Ambassador Mikhail
A. Menshikov, Russia's fast-mov-
ing new envoy, will call on Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower Tues-
day to present his credentials. This
ceremony will put him in business
here as Moscow's top negotiator.
Thompson Returns Thursday
Meanwhile, United States Am-
bassador to Russia Llewellyn
Thompson, who is understood to
believe that some kind of first
step disarmament agreement with
Moscow may eventually be pos-
sible, is due back in the Soviet
capital Thursday.
He finished up two weeks of
consultation here Friday.
In evident anticipation of active
discussions through Thompson in
Moscow and Menshikov in Wash-
ington, the Soviet radio proclaimed
yesterday that the United States
was correct in insisting on ade-
quate preparation for a summit

Behind all the sparring over
how to go about setting up a con-

Among these factors is the
strength of the political base from
which each of the two super pow-

Cagers Beat Illinois 88-81
To Regain Conference Ldead
Michigan rushed past Illinois last night, 88-81, to move back
into first placein the harried Big Ten basketball race.
The victory came, above all else, because the Wolverines had
five hard-working cagers on the floor for the full 40 minutes. There
was none of the oft-seen scoring and defensive lapses, and each
player did his part in each phase of the game.
Capacity Crowd
A near capacity crowd of 8,200 fans watched the game at Yost
Field House. They saw the two teams scramble through a high-scoring

Michigan's swimming team rolled
on to an easy 59-46 victory over
Iowa's Hawkeyes last night at the
University of Iowa pool.
In earning their third triumph,
the undefeated Wolverines me-
thodically churned past an Iowa
squad that was rated before the
season by Michigan swim coach
Gus Stager as the team to beat in
the Western Conference.
Fries Outstanding
Stager termed the triumph as a
team victory. However, he pointed

Fries placed second in that event
behind Michigan's Dick Hanley
and in so doing defeated Iowa ace
Jim Coles, holder of second place
in the Big Ten 200-yd, freestyle

strong one-two punch for the

Fifteen independent citizens as-
sociated with behavioral science,
four of whom are from the Uni-
versity, appeared in Washington
yesterday urging a national effort
to expand research in this field.
Purpose of the boosted research
in human behavior would enhance
international relations and
strengthen national defense, the
group indicated.
Members from- the University
include Prof. James G. Miller,
director of the Mental Health Re-
search Institute who heads the
citizen group; Prof. Ralph W.
.Gerard and the Rev. Mr. C. Leslie
Glenn, also of the Institute; and
Donald G. Marquis, chairman of
the psychology department.
Vice President Richard M. Nixon
has previously met with the group
and originally encouraged its for-
mation. Suggestions from the citi-
zens have been discussed with
James R. Killian Jr., special as-
sistant to the President for science
and technology, and other top gov-
ernmental leaders.
The first step of the scientist's
plan calls for the formation of an
advisory panel of behavioral sci-
entists to work closely with the
Special Assistant to the President
for Science and Technology.

Schwartz was one of the group
of students who traveled to Com-

Norman Thomas Views
Nation's 'Welfare State'
Socialist Norman Thomas yesterday confronted nearly 100 stu-

nation's interests already revolve around socialism.
Describes 'Welfare State'
"When the average businessman talks about free enterprise, it's
for someone else," he told a discussion session sponsored by the Polit-

ical Issues Club. Describing the<
nation as much closer to socialism
than ever thought possible in 1932,
the six time presidential candidate
said "We now have a type of wel-
fare state that is more of a de-
parture from the old laissez-faire
philosophy than from modern

the question and answer period, he
pointed out that in the nation's
political history, numerous third
parties have pioneered ideas, such
as free education and abolition of
slavery, even though they failed
to win elections.
Warns Against Utopia
"In general, the third party
movements have been composed of
those who were impatient - pio-
neers in ideas," he said.
Later, he warned against seek-
ing -a utopia, for "one set of an-
swers., often raises another set of
problems." He cited nationalism
as a prime example.

Sohyo, a near-communist union, is opposing the University's joint
program with Tokyo's Waseda University to increase employment and
productivity in Japan, according to Kiyoshi Shibuya of Japan's Nissan{

"I think the objection is political," the automotive time study

by Waseda this semester to join the group already studying here.
He said a non-communist union called Sodomei has organized
workers at the Nissan plant ani favors rising production. Sohyo is
