Joe Collins, '58, SGC president, told the Council, "If we are to.

times a year, the Council must

Health Service Still Awaits
Shipment of Flu Vaccine
There is a hastily crayoned sign on the front door of Health
Service, which reads, "No flu shots until further notice" and Dr. Morly
Beckett, director, reported yesterday that the long awaited vaccine
supply has still not arrived.
Health Service's supply of preventative Asian Flu vaccine ran
out last week when dental students were given the last of the shots.
More has been on order from pharmaceutical firms since last
summer. But Beckett hopes that "we may have news within a few
days." Cases of "upper respiratory infection" have decreased markedly
since Monday when over 200 complaints forced Health Service to
CQinstitute an emergency program

There were many difficulties in
planning, organizing and prepar-
ing for the cooperation needed to
make the Flint College a reality,
he said. "However, a university is
not simply a spot on the map but
an intellectual dedication that
should benefit all," President Hat-
" cher added.

minutes later when the gown clad

audience marched to the two story
building to watch Mott unveil a
plaque in memory of his parents,
gesture to the building and declare,
"Here it is, now go to it."

tension and called for a United
Nations "hands off" policy toward
Ahmad Shkairy, minister of
state for Saudi Arabia, told the
82-nation General Assembly "It
is the policy of the West that is
destroying ties with the Arabs."
Not UN Affair
He proclaimed Saudi Arabia's
full solidarity with Syria and as-
serted shipments of Communist
arms to that country is no busi-
ness of the UN.
He called for the U'N to estab-
lish an agency to "facilitate the
repatriation of Israelis to their
former homes." He said, "We do
not intend to throw the Jews to
the sea," but wish them "a bet-
ter and happier life ii their
homelands, where they can settle
under UN auspices."
Heads Delegation
Shukairy ,is a Palestinian Arab
who represented Syria at past UN
sessions. He is head of te UN
delegation for Saudi Arabia,
whose King Saud is regarded by
the ,United States as a friend in
the Middle East. ,
A British spokesman said the
speech "can hardly be regarded
as a helpful contribution to the
affairs of the UN, with particular
reference to the Middle East,"'
Shukairy denounced as "sheer
fallacy" a suggestion by British
Foreign Secretary Selwyn Lloyd
that the Soviets may be establish-
ing a forward base in the Middle
East by an arms buildup in Syria.

Attitude Good
Collins explained that Galens
attitude toward Campus Chest was
quite good this year. "And they
may well, we are led to believe,

The campus area as now defined

the west by Maynard, the south

SGC has the power for such
legislation because, of its approval
power over all student activities.
There was no objection by any
Council member to the change.
At the same meeting, SGC set
up a committee to look into revi-
sion, possibilities of the Daily's
SGC election supplement.
Want Content Say
Since the Council pays for the
supplement, the Council felt,, it
should say what goes into it. Scott
Chrysler, '59, objected to t h e
Daily's present method of asking
the candidates questions which he
said was unfair. He said candi-
dates should just be asked to pre-
sent their platform.
Collins told the Council that the
athletic department will request
I-D cards be shown with football
tickets for all games.
However, he did note, that while
most student tickets were not
transferrable, band football tickets
were, marked especially so they,
could be transferred.
He said there might be an in-
consistancy here, which the Coun-
cil could look into.

announced the six council recom-
mendations, t h r e e juniors and
three seniors, for the Lecture Com-

fairs, James A. Lewis, will chose
one member from each group to
serve on the committee.

Student Government Council
last night endorsed the concept of
women cheerleaders.
Action came after Lou Susman,
'59, president of the Wolverine
Club, requested the action from
the Council, as well as letters from
each of the ex-officio members.
The presidents of the four Uni-
versity housing groups were the,
only members to vote against the
Backed by Revelli
Susman told the Council that
William D. Revelli, University di-
rector of bands, had recommended
women cheerleaders after he had
rejected the request for a person
dressed as a wolverine to appear
on the field.
According to Susman, a brief
has been filed with the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athletics,
which would consider the request
Newt Loken, coach of gymnas-
tics, felt the women involved were
excellent gymnasts, Sussman said,
and were fully qualified for the
He also told the Council Dean
of Men Walter B. Rea approved
the request, while Dean of Women
Deborah Bacon was uncommitted.
The group had to work out items
of dress such aslong skirts and
style of sweater.,
Frequent Request
Dean Rea told The Daily that
the request for women cheerlead-
ers has occurred two or three times
in the last four years.
He explained that the Univer-
sity has been "traditionally con-
servative" about such matters. For
instance, he said, "we don't have
girl drum majors, baton twirlers,
pom-pom girls or a campus queen."
And the decision is actually up
to a great many groups, he noted.
This includes the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics, the 'M'
Club, the managers club'and many
other groups. "And you can be
sure," he said, "that alumni will
be for keeping the situation as it

X-RayC Moon Camera Planned . .
WASHINGTON - Russia plans to put an X-ray camera in one
of her baby moons for a new look at the sun, a Soviet scientist said
It would see an eerie picture. The sun's face might be invisible
except perhaps for dimples of sunspots. Only. X-rays in the sun's
tremendous atmosphere - which reaches to the earth -- would be
visible. Such a study could explain some mysteries of the sun.
