In I-i Building on a Saturday Night
A $6,000 J-Hop budget based on holding thedance at the, I-M
uilding on a Saturday night was approved by Student Government
ouncil last night.
Debate concerned both the financial risk of the budget and the
>ssibility of holding the dance at the League. SGC Treasurer Mort
rise, '60, said, "it is always possible to lose money but this is a good
udget with risk at a minimum."
The tentative budget, as approved last night, varied from the one

- cuts in all other items except the

noh's President Camille Chamoun
reiterated charges yesterday that
President Gamal Abdel Nasser's
united Arab Repulic is trying to
destroy him and his pro-Western
He said he would never resign
under such pressure.
Chamoun Quizzed
President Camoun was asked
at a news conference. whether he
would yield to political opposition
demands that he resign. before
they will end a 13-day-old general
strike accompanied by violence
and bloodshed.
President Chamoun said his op-
ponents are under the direction
of the Nasser government.
He said ,a decision will be made
by late today whether Lebanon
will complain to the United Na-
tions Security Council about the
alleged United Arab Republic
Cites 'Interfering'
"The U.AR. has been massively
interfering in our internal affairs
with a view to causing radical al-
terations in- our fundamental na-
tional policy," President Chamoun
charged again.
In Cairo, the U.A.R. informa-
tion director, Saad Afra, reiterat-
eA accusations that the United
States is trying to create a pre-
text . for interfering in Lebanon
under the Eisenhower Doctrine of
aid for Middle East countries

Gain Controf
Of Morotai
JAKARTA, Indonesia (P)- The
army claimed complete control of
the island of Morotai in East In-
donesia ylesterday and said its
troops will strike next at Menado,
capital of rebel-held North Celebes.
An announcement by an army
spokesman said government forces
were driving toward a key airfield
on nearby Halmahera Island, and
that occupation of the entire
island is only a matter of two or
three days.
Both Morotai and Halmahera
are good jumping off points for an
attack on the last rebel strong-
holds in North Celebes, about 200
miles to the west.
A Navy spokesman said occupa-
tion of Morotai was accomplished
after the initial landing of an
amphibious task force.
The spokesman said the landing
was made by a very small force in
comparison to the full-scale inva-
sion force that hit Padang in the
final thrust that broke the rebel
regimes' grip on Central Sumatra.

'Could Decorate for Less'
J-Hop chairman Murray Fei-
well, '60, explained that the dec-
orator who had worked on last
year's J-Hop had purchased an-
other company which had done
many. college dances. Thus, Fei-
well said, the decorator could of-
fer his committee "adequate, even
good" decorating themes for
Feiwell mentioned the possibili-
ty' of holding a jazz concert, not
included in the dance budget, on
the night before the dance.
Members differed on student
support of J-Hop. League Presi-
dent Bobbie Maier, '59, expressed

ed to spend an entire evening at
a big dance.-
Big Dance Questioned,
"Why not have a big band in a
little plate," she asked, "with stu-
dents coming and going?"
Scott Chrysler, '59BAd., and
Union President Barry Shapiro,
'59, expressed doubt that chang-
ing the dance to the week-end
would provide enough additional'
interest in it. But it was pointed'
out that last year's J-Hop chair-

The budget was passed 11-5 on
a roll call vote, and according to
Feiwell's plans submitted with the
budget, the dance will be held
February 7, 1959.
Before the evening's regular
business was transacted the Coun-
cil heard a talk by State Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction
Lynn Bartlett.
Bartlett listed for SGC what he
said were the essential problems
facing education: enrollnient in-
creases, facilities incapable of
handling these increases, need for
more and better teachers, need for
financial aid to those who deserve
it, and financial support for edu-
cational institutions in general.

Senate Votes
Big Increase
In Mail Rate
providing for the biggest postal
rate increase in United States his-
tory was passed by the Senate yes-
terday 'and sent to the House.
It would raise the first class let-
ter rate to four cents and add a
penny to the cost of air mail let-
ters and ordinary postcards, now
delivered for six and two. cents.
Revenue Increased
When these and other proposed
increases become effective, Post
Office revenue would be increased
by an estimated 575 million dol-
lars a year.
About 265 million of this extra
revenue would be spent annually
on increased pay for the 520,000
postal employes. The bill carries
a 10 per cent pay raise for most
of the employes, retroactive to
Jan. 1.
Sets New High
Dr. Irving I. Raines, director of
the Postal Rates Division in the
Post Office Department,said Con-
gress has never passed a bigger,
rate hike than that contained in
the 1958 bill.
It covers practically every rate
in every class of mail under con-
gressional jurisdiction, he added.
Senate passage was on an 88-0
rollcall vote. The House is expect-
ed to pass the bill, possibly today.
Rates Still Low _
While the rates are lower than
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
recommended-and the pay raise
is higher - it was predicted the
President would sign it.
Postmaster General Arthur H.
Summerfield was reported to have
given the bill a strong endorse-
ment at the White House Monday.
If President Eisenhower signs
the bill before the end of May, the

higher first class mail rates would
become effective Aug. 1.
Rate increases for other types
of mail would be stretched out
over a four-year period.

Leaders Set
To Modify
PARIS (A) - Premier Pierre
Pflimiin moved yesterday to re-x
assert his authority over ther
rightist hotbed in Algeria.
He sent Gen. Henri Lorillot, his3
newly appointed chief of the com-
bined French forces, to Algiers.e
Propose Agreement
On the home front, Pflimlin andt
leaders of political parties in his
coalitio nhammered out agree-
ment on a four-point proposal fort
amendment of the constitution to
give more power and more stabili-
ty to the executive branch. The
Cabinet will take up the proposal
A key provision was reported
to be that the parliamentary op- ;
position must agree on an alter-i
native premier and program be-
fore it can overthrow a Cabinet.
Subject to Approval
The-whole proposal is subject to
Parliament's approval.
Lorillot's job is to confer with
Gen. Raoul Salan, the French
commander in Algeria who likes
Gen. Charles de Gaulle. New de-
fiance rolled up in Algeria as Lor-
illot's mission was announced.
"We will accept no one but Gen.
de Gaulle," declared Alain de
Serigny, influential member of
junta there. "He is the only one
capable of maintain the unity of
the nation.."
Lorillot held the Algeria com-
mand before Salan took over.
One of Salan's top aides was re-
turning to report to his chief aft-
er two days of talks in Paris with'
Defense Minister Pierre de Che-
The obvious aim was to
strengthen the bridges between
Paris and Algiers.
Power Strong
The current for calling de
Gaulle to take over the govern-'
ment still dominates in Algeria
and runs strongly in France. The
armed forces and the war veter-
ans are behind the general.
The Algeria situation - a week
after antigovernment riots led to
the formation of insurrectional
committees of public safety - is
as complex as ever.

but wins hislocal popularity from

National Economy Seen
As Both Bright, Dismal
WASHINGTON (AP)-One top government official sees some fairly
rosy prospects ahead for the economy while another said the govern-
ment faces a lot of in-the-red spending.'
Secretary of Commerce Sinclair Weeks gave the cheery view
yesterday to the House Banking committee: "I anticipate that the
economic picture will be much brighter later this year and the next,
if we do the right things now. Employment has been rising seasonally,
certain business indicators are a bit better here and there and a spirit
of revived confidence is beginning to appear."
The red-ink discussion came from Budget Director Maurice Stans,
talking to reporters after a call on President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Stans predicted that spending in'a
the current fiscal year, ending next
June 30, will be 73-732 billion
dollars, with a deficit of about
three billion.
For theyear beginning July 1,
Stans said the government may be
expected to go 8-10 billions into,

hower estimated spending in this
new year would reach $73,900,000,-
000, with a surplus of 500 million.
The recession, cutting revenue and
increasing spending plans, has
changed all that.
Looking farther ahead, Stans
predicted that federal spending in
the fiscal year beginning July 1,
1959, will increase to about 80'
billion dollars.
Taxes Not Discussed
Stans said he and President
Eisenhower did not discuss the
question of cutting taxes.
He did say his own estimate of
the deficit in the year starting
July 1 did not include the possi-
bility of tax cutting.
Weeks was before the banking
committee in its study of how to
help provide more jobs.
Weeks said he favored increased
tax deductions-up to $50,000 a
year-for new small businesses.

Witholds Pledge
But once again Salan refrained
from an outright call for a return
of Charles de Gaulle to power in
France, as the yelling crowd de-
mands here in its loud daily dem-
Salan's enigmatic words evoked
ringing cheers. He let the few
words stand without elaboration.
Cited as "Symbolical"
An aide said he was being sym-
bolical, that they expressed Al-
gerian desires for a new regime its
Paris to replace Premier Pierre
Pflimlin's government.
Salan on Tuesday got a new
endorsement of faith from thE

It came as he continued to pla
a role that may be either appease-
ment of or collaboration with the
anti-Paris military - colonialis1
regime ruling Algeria.
Publicly Praised
He has publicly 'praised D
Gaulle-a French national hero 61
World War II-but he has stopped
short of political commitments.
As a ,personable veteran Frenb
military careerist and eminen
patriot, Salan has soothed the Al
giers mobs with hiswords.
Yesterday the crowd shouted al
one point,. "The army to power,'
and it was then Salan said si.
"We will all go to the Champs.
