Republican candidate
ax System
1ondem ed



Michigan's "hodge - podge" tax
structure was vigorously attacked
yesterday by Republican guberna-
torial nomination candidate Paul
-D. Bagwell
In a speech before high-ranking
Washtenaw county GOP leaders,
Bagwell blamed present taxation
programs for rapidly declining in-
dustrial growth in the state.
"Industry is being driven to
neighboring states by the Gov-
ernor's attitude and policy," he
said. Michigan's industrial manu-
facturing taxes are eight times'
higher than Ohio and six and one-
half times higher than Illinois,
Bagwell said.
Calls for New Plan
The 44 year old Michigan State
University professor called for a
"long-range" program to restore
industrial jobs in Michigan and
redilce unemployment.
"Unemployment wouldn't be
twice that of the national average
if such a plan were in effect," he
SComparing union support of
political candidates and parties to
a "Big Brother" concept, Bagwell
said this type of society has no
place in the United States.
'Exercise Rights'
,Bagwell called on union mem-
bers to "think fora themselves and
exercise their fundamental rights
as citizens."
"The rank and file union mem-
ber should not have to pay dues
for the support of a party they
have chosen to vote against," he
Condemning government by
"Proxy," Bagwell cited Governor
William's 205 days spent away
from the legislature as evidence of
"'moral irresponsibility."
Criticizes Governor
Michigan ,needs a "full{- time"
govenor in these critical times, he
said. ?"The govenor is using the
legislature as a foil for political
purposes," he added.
Commenting on the Republican
party's chances in the forthcoming
elections, Bagwell said the GOP's
"dynamic conservatism" is the
answer to Michigan's present

Accuse Tunisia
But last night tht French said
fighting blazed up in a new elash
late in the day at a desert pasis
near Gafsa airfield.
The French accused Tunisia of
starting hostilities.
Meanwhile in France, Premier
Pierre Pfiimlin was saddled with
.new crisis while trying to deal
with Algerian attempts to force
out colonial troops.
Pinay Mediates
Former Premier Antoine Pinay,
a conservative independent, took
up a mediation role. Apparently
a self-appointed go-between, he
drove to General Charles de
Gaulle's country home. He and the
general talked for an' hour and 45
minutes, presumably about what
de Gaulle might be willing to do
toward bringing peace in France.
Then Pinay drove back to Paris
and confeiired -'with Pfiimlin for
almost an hour. Pinay told news-
men on leaving he had found de
Gaulle "extremely open, very
affable," and his general impres-
sion of their talks was very good.
Approve Amendments
Pfiimlin's Cabinet approved a
series of proposed constitutional
amendments intended to strength-
en the executive branch and thus
take some of the wind out of
General Charles de Gaulle's sails.
The ministers gave Pflimlin au-
thority to make adoption of the
amendments an. issue of confi-
dence-meaning the government
will stand or fall on the outcome
in Parliament. They decided to
seek a showdown in the National
Assembly Tuesday.,

Rate aHike
House vote yesterday put it up to
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
whether to raise postal rates by
550 million dollars a year.
1 The unanimous vote completed
congressional action on a bill that,
in addition to raising postal rates,
would increase postal employes'
pay by 380 million dollars a -year.
If President Eisenhower signs
the bill before the month is out,
the cost of mailing a first class
letter will increase on Aug. 1 from
the present three cents to four
cents. It will cost seven cents, in-
stead of six, for anairmail let-
ter and three cents, instead of
two, for a postcard.
Second Class Mail
Rates on second class mail -
newspapers and magazines -
would be raised 60 per cent on the
advertising content and 30 per
cent on the editorial portion of a
publication. This would take ef-
fect in three annual 20 and 10 per
cent jumps with the first one com-
ing next January.
Third class - largely advertis-
ing circulars - rates would be in-
creased 66.6 per cent in two steps.,
The bulk piece rate would go up
from one and one-half to two
cents next Jan. 1 and to two and
one-half cent's July 1, 1960. '
The administration has been
trying for years to get rates raised,
so as to reduce' the annual deficit
shown in Post Office Department
Talk of Veto
However, this bill is 150 million
dollars short of what President
Eisenhower asked in revenue and
220 million more than he sought
in pay raises.
While there has been some talk
of a veto, one senator said that

DISCUSSING POETRY-Prof. John Ciardi (right) of Rutgers
University, who spoke at the Hopwood Awards Ceremony, discusses
literary technique with Daniel Jaffe, who won a major prize for
his volumed of poetry.


Poetry Expresses Itsel f.
BySleneCiardi Sayos.
"How the poem expresses itself around the silences inside it" is of
major importance, Prof. John Ciardi of Rutgers University said at the,
Hopwood awards ceremony yesterday.
His speech was followed by presentation of the Avery and Jule
Hopwood awards.
In every poem' there is a dividing point, Prof. Ciardi said, where
the "poem seems to balance against itself." The balances, or "fulcrum
points" are marked by a silence ',
within the poem, he said. I p W i

Defines Structure
He defined poetic structure by
saying, "A poem is one part"
against another across a silence."
After the silence, he explained, the
poet has changed either his atti-
tude toward' his subject, or the
tone of the poem.
He said the "technical change*
may be slight, but unless one-
registers it, he is not taking part
in the poem." One zannot separate
the intricate balance of a poem
from its content, he continued.
Prof. Ciardi used specific poems
in discussing the points at which
a poem balances itself. The "si-
lence" may come in the middle of
the poem, at any point within the
structure of the poem, or may not
be a part of the structure at all.
Silence Used
"A truncated poem" which moves
at a constant, unvarying rate has
no "internal pauses" he said, but
the silence is still present. The
poem "launches itself to rest,"
letting the fulcrum point come
just after it ends, he said. This
type of poem, Prof. Ciardi ex-
plained, "uses its following silence
to moralize."
Some poets, he said, fail to use
the "truncated poem." Often a
poet "tacks on" a moral that les-
sens the effect of the poem. A poet
who does this, Prof. Ciardi con-
tinued, "has used up and thrown
away all his silence."

Speech Department Opens New Theater'
The speech department will open its new arena theater today with
a spring playbill of four one-act plays.
Surrounded on' three sides by green curtains, with a 16-foot
modernistic mural covering the fourth wall, the theater has seats for
the audience surrounding the central arena-style stage.
An elevator running from one end of the arena to the stage of
the Trueblood Auditorium located directly above, will eventually be
used for equipment for a scene workshop, according to Thomas D.
Skinner of the speech department.
To Purchase Seats
Although the audience for -the current playbill will be seated on
folding chairs, the speech department plans to purchase arena theater
seats that will be adjustable according to level and number of rows,
he added.
"Students from the department's stagecraft course did most of
the work during their regular laboratory periods," Richard Schiller,
