Sen. Paul Douglas (D-Ill.) con-
tended the government's figures
did not give thq real picture of
total unemployment.
Taking into consideration those
whose working hours and pay-
checks have been reduced, the
senator said, you would get the
equivalent of at least another mil-
Slion unemployed.
Sen Estes Kefauver (D-Tenn.)
agreed with Douglas.
Senators Hubert H. Humphrey
(D-Minn.), Patrick McNamara

Cutler Criticizes
Dorm Adjustin
Prof. Richard Cutler of the psychology department last night re-
jected expediency and "well-rationalized beliefs" as a basis for resi-
dence hall policy.
Prof. Cutler criticized the policy of "adjustment" he said was
practiced in residence halls. He asked instead for a policy that would
expose students to different cultural values and then, if necessary,
adjust them.
Cutler, Student Agree
He said "the residence hall system is part of the total educa-
tional experience" and should have the same goals as other Univer-
_tsitY areas. He and Alan Krebs,

Rocket Test
Flight Sent
Over Ocean
Redstone ballistic missile - the
workhorse of the American space
weapon arsenal-blasted off its
firing pad yesterday.
The Redstone, first-stage back-
bone of the Jupiter-C rocket which
hurled the first United States
satellite into orbit around the
earth Jan. 31, roared up into a
black, overcast Florida sky at 7:52
p.m. EST.
Its test flight out over the At-
lantic ocean may yield much in--
formation vital to America in her
effort to beat Russia to a solu-
tion of the secrets of outer space.
Announces Immediately
A few minutes after 7 p.m., the
Redstone service gantry was
wheeled away and the missile be-

The furious public demand for
an American earth satellite to
match the Russian Sputniks cast
the Redstone in a more exotic role
and made it the free world's most
famous space rocket.
It was thrust into duty as the
first stage of the makeshift Jupi-
ter-C which performed so bril-
liantly in launching the Explorer
satellite now circling the world.

Grad., agreed the basic function
of a University could be expressed
as "fostering constructive con-
flict" and the dormitories were
not integrated as well as' they
could be.
They differed on the solution
to residence hall integration;
Krebs advocated a "first come,
first served" basis for placing en-
tering freshmen. Prof. Cutler fa-
vored allowing students with vio-
lent objections to rooming with
someone of a different race or
nationality to room with someone
of the same race and nationality.

question "Are you interested in a
roommate of a different race or
nationality other than your own."
"It's hard to say yes to such a
question," Prof. Cutler said. He
suggested a question similar to
"Would you strongly object to a
roommate of a race or nationality
other than your own."
He said the expedient view, a
view he said administrators "seem
to hold," is that integration cre-
ates more problems than it solves.
A "go-slow" policy is advocated
until students are ready for an-
other step in integration. But due
to this policy, Prof. Cutler said,
students are never ready for the
next step.

He said refusing to integrate
further because parents might oby.

students to more ideas that might

U.S. Asked
To Denounce
French Raid
WASHINGTON () -- Secretary;
of State John Foster Dulles re-
ported yesterday that Tunisia has
requested American support in a
move to denounce France before
the United Nations -for bombing a
Tunisian border village last Sat-
Sec. Dulles said it would be
premature to decide whether to
back any such complaint because
Tunisia was vague about what
the United Nations might do.
He appealed to both sides to
minimize the impact of the bomb-
ing and seek to develop close and
friendly relations of the kind he
believes necessary between North
Africa and Western Europe.
Sec. Dulles talked about the
French-Tunisian crisis at a news
conference where he carefully
sought to steer a middle'-course,
in keeping with past policy.

Ypsilanti Supervisor Wins Battle Against Recall
-...r. V in.; Crr:c' .,Cyrn. nt "~ ~s v '-cv'

Ypsilanti Township Supervisor Franklin J. Shepherd won hIls
battle against a recall move last night by a vote of 2172-901.
Shepherd termed his victory "a complete vindication of the
people's desire to have honest men and men of integrity in public
The recall movement was launched against Shepherd after
charges were made by the township board of trustees that the super-
visor spent "less than 50 per cent of the required hours in his office."
Criticizes Board Member
Shepherd charged the board made its statement as a result of
several conflicts he had with members of the board.
Later, Shepherd, who is a township trustee, charged the other
members of the board were "unfit to serve the people of the town-
ship." He urged that they be recalled.
Proceedings were then instituted .against Shepherd by several
of the trustees who circulated recall petitions against him.
The Washtenaw County Board of Supervisors, on which Shepherd
sits, recently expressed confidence in Shepherd's work.
Supporters of Shepherd's fight to stay in office crowded the Ypsi-
lanti Township Hall last night as election inspectors worked to com-
plete the tally on precinct six - the final precinct to report.

After the election inspectors reported the sixth precinct vote of
