A majority of the committee

that education is preferable to

ating bias, Shorr explained.
Attached to the report is a mi-

out. This asks the Council to rec-
ommend discontinuing University

Returns of the course evalua-

to Ron Gregg, '60, chairman of

Course Evaluation Committee.
Gregg's figures, based primari-

the women's housing units, have
been compiled on the basis of the
number of questionnaires received
by the committee through yester-
"We are especially pleased with
the response we have gotten from
the sororities," Gregg said.
Gregg said he is hoping for an-
other 1,000 questionnaires from
the women's dormitories. He esti-

Call Soviet Editors Non-Committal


"Observant and polite, but stu-
diously non-committal," the Har-
vard Crimson labeled the six Rus-
sian "student editors" on tour last
week in the Boston area.
The editors are visiting the
United States on the exchange
program which is sending Ameri-
can student editors, including Da-
vid Baad, '56, former Daily Editor,
and Daily Editor Peter Eckstein,
'58, to Russia.
The Boston itinerary for the
editors includes a call on the gov-
ernor of Massachusetts, tours of
Boston and the Harvard campus,
press conferences, television ap-
pearances, and, the Crimson noted,
visits to Radcliffe which "help
break up the formality of more
'official' stops in their trip."
Emphasize Russia's Progress
At press conferences, the editors
"eagerly emphasized their coun-
try's progress, but neatly side-
stepped all questions about Krush-
chev and his policies," the Crimson
said. The delegates avoided giving
opinions by claiming that since
most of them were Communist
Party members, Americans would
not believe their answers anyway.
Kuri Voronov, leader of the
group, told the Crimson that in
Russia one man can. do nothing.
"But under Krushchev," he said,
"the party has done many things."
Ages of the delegation range
from 28 to 38 years old because,
the editors explained, they are
editors of publications for youth.

For the last two days Cardinal
Stritch had been able only to
whisper "yes" or "no" and couldI

Cardinal Stritch had been
steadily losing ground since he
suffered a paralyzing stroke a
week ago. The stroke came three
weeks after his right arm had
been amputated above the elbow
to eliminate the danger of gan-
grene from a blood clot.
The cardinal was pronounced
dead at 1:35 a.m. by Dr. Raimon-

Housing Called Main Segregation Issue

"Housing," one prominent local Negro resident says, "is the crucial
problem in discrimination."
.:Numerous case histories bear out his statement. For example, a
4 Negro who lives in Ypsilanti and works in Ann Arbor has been
attempting to buy a house here for four years.
He has seen at least 30 or 40 houses from the outside, and talked
to their owners either in person or on the telephone.
Two Prices Quoted
O He reports one instance in which the owner quoted him one price
for a house over the phone, and a second price, $4,000 higher, when
he went to see him. The owner denied having mentioned the first price
over the phone, saying there was "some mistake."
