De Gaulle, in France, said he was willing.

He announced the decision to
call for imposition of the state of
emergency. It was made at a full
Cabinet meeting with President
Rene Coty at the Elysee Palace,
the Fr enMhWhiteHouse, that
lasted far beyond midnight last
' night.
Two Communist chieftains --
whose party is excluded from the
government - made a 20-minute
call at the palace while the minis-
ters met. They were Jacques Du-
oos, the party's acting secretary
general, and Waldeck Rochet, his
top aide.

"I have my doubts as to wheth-
er the past interpretation by the
Councilsof the discriminatory rul-
ing has been a good one," Roger
Seasonwein,. '61, said.
"I felt it unfair for SGC to use
this particular group of girls to
break precedent," he continued.
"Therefore, I did not -express
these doubts in debate, when the
fate of 33 girls who obviously
needed a sororfty was at stake."
Interfraternity Council Presi-
dent John Gerber, '59, said that
there was no question as to the
need for another sorority on cam-
pus. He cited the number of girls
who rushed but didn't pledge.
Gerber said he based his deci-
sion, in part, on the recommen-
dation of Panhellenic Association
to accept the charter of the soror-
ity. "There was no question in my
mind that it would make a worthy
contribution to the campus," Ger-

Whatever Paris may do, the

French cohorts were in control of
all major cities, in Algeria.
The reins of power seized by
the mob Tuesday were taken over
in immediate and orderly fashion
by French parachutist Gen.
Jacques Massu.
A small fire drew a large crowd
yesterday when a spark from the
incinerator on a local restaurant
caused a fire in an attic of a
rooming house next door.
According 'to Ann Arbor's Fire
Marshall, the incinerator lacked
a "spark arrester" on the chim-
ney to catch sparks and keep
them from leaving the chimney.
The proprietor of the restaurant
said the City of Ann Arbor had
checked his incinerator within the
past year and found nothing
wrong with it. "The incinerator
has been like this for 20 years,"
he said.

the City, but she was positive the

A joint statement 'signed by

The statement noted that Nas-

the United Arab Republic and
that both had accepted. No dates
were mentioned.
The agreement denounced "the
barbaric French war, against the

It condemned Western "colonial-.

Special to The Daily
LANSING - Michigan's legisla-
ture late yesterday approved a bill
giving the University $1,515,000 for
capital outlay during the coming
fiscal year.
Last fall the University asked
for $15,837,000 in building funds.
The present bill will allow the
University to complete theMedical
Science Bldg. and will provide
funds for services and electrical
renovations in the University Hos-
The original request asked for
money to build an Institute of
Science and Technology, a Physics
and Astronomy Bldg., new class-
rooms and laboratories on Randall

It also included provisions for
the construction of a Mathematics

Beirut Riots

BEIRUT, Lebanon (R)- Bomb-
ings and gunfire flayed this tor-
tured capital yesterday in contin-
uation of what. many people fear
may be a curtain raiser to gen-
eral Middle East turmoil.
President Camille Chamoun ap-
peared to be winning out, at least
for the time being.
But many in Beirut expressed
belief this little country, normally
an oasis of sanity in this part of
the world, is teetering on the brink
of tragedly unless a compromise is
reached between the government
and the opposition.
This situation is far from a
strictly internal Lebanese affair.
Other forces are deeply involved,
including United Arab Republic
propaganda agents from Cairo and
Damascus, as well as Communists
operating in the background and
taking fullest advantage of the
strife here.
Lebanon has a pro-Western gov-
ernment which has been under
constant pressure from Damascus
and Cairo. Damascus and Cairo
are now taking advantage of the
internal situation in which a pro-
Nasser opposition is fighting the
government foreign policy.

'Unnecessary Expenditures'
Seen at 'U' by Congressman
Special to The Daily
LANSING-Rep. James Warner (R-Ypsilanti) yesterday called
the salary paid to the vice-president of the University an "unneces-
sary expenditure."
The position, created in March 1956, is currently occupied by
William Stirton.'}
"When the University created the job, it diverted a large sum
of money away from needed pay raises for other faculty members,"

Warner said. However, he added,
Stirton himself is a "very compe-.
tent man."
Stirton, who carries on most of
the University's liaison work with
the state legislature, refused to
comment on Warner's statement.
Warner also levelled a verbal
volley at the 15-man University
entourage which travelled to Hol-
land, Mich., recently to confer on
the accreditation of Holland
Christian High School.
"Any of three men - University

President and Dean of Faculties

favored a $31 million budget for

MOSCOW -The Soviet Union fired its third Sputnik it

"We must stop scaring each
other," Khrushchev declared.
In obvious reference to an East-
West summit conference, he add-
ed, "We- must. sit down at the
same table and talk about how we
can live together in peace on our
common planet." .

Tass later claimed that Sput-

U.S. Said Capable of Launching Satellite in 1956

The Army Jupiter-C rocket which put Explorer I into orbit had
shown itself capable of putting a satellite in orbit as early as 1956,
according to Prof. W. C. Nelson, chairman of the aeronautical engi-
neering department.
As a result of this earlier work it was no surprise to scientists
that the Explorer launching vehicle was first to put a United States
satellite in orbit, or that it succeeded on first try, he said.
Prof. Nelson, who has recently returned from Nyest Germany
where he attended a NATO conference, explained that the Explorer
