President Eisenhower sent the
soldiers in Sept. 24, the day after

Joseph Konowe, secretary of the
Credentials Committee, said the
papers had been thrown out by a
hotel maid, who later died.
But Konowe said he believed
substantially all of the records had

Sen. McClellan, on the other

were so incomplete "as to be'al-

Mathematician Denounces
'Second Rate Intellects'
CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. (R) - The American education sys-
tem is turning out "second rate intellects" instead of sorely needed
creative scientists, one of the nation's leading mathematicians
charged here yesterday.
Norbert Wiener of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
one of the pioneers in development of high speed caculating ma-
chines, made his, attack in a speech at a symposium marking the
125th anniversary of Wabash College.
Do Not Know Math
"Our mathematics teachers do not know mathematics, our lan-
guage teachers do not know languages," Wiener said. "The result is
that a large part of the years of "

a high school are spent in a lock-
step marking time,. rather than
in marching anywhere in par-
The United States school sys-
tem, the MIT professor said, is
under control of the National Ed-
ucation Assn., which he described
as "a powerful and self -perpetu-
ating lobby of vested interests."
Attacked Industry
Wiener accused both the mili-
tary and private industry of valu-
ing a scientist "in accordance
with the amount of money that
he spends" and said of the United
States intercontinental missile
"Even the merest layman may
be pardoned for his suspicion that
all is-not going well."
A second member of the sym-
posium, Dr. Wtney J. Oates of
the Princeton University classics'
department, described the job of
liberal education "to impart to its
students the breadth and depth of
vision' wherewith to choose first
and rescrutinize throughout a
questing lifetime, a sustaining in-
terpretation of that which is."

The government's view was set
forth in a formal State Depart-

porters at a news conference.
The American statement ad-
vised Khrushchev to heed his own
words that a modern war once
started is difficult to confine to
any particular locality.
"That truth should be prayer-
fully and Constantly contemplated
by every responsible official of
every country," the statement said.
The American attitude was ex-
pressed in the form of comment
on an interview Khrushchev gave
to a New York Times reporter in
In this interview, Khrushchev

PARIS (R) - The Soviet earth

Western Europe from its orbit of

The British press urged a pool-

Visitors from Liberia, Peru and
Ecuador will continue to be finger-

countries abandon their finger-

Government A bolishes
Required Fingerprints
WASHINGTON ()-The United States yesterday abolished, with
some few exceptions, its controversial requirement that all visitors from
abroad be subjected to fingerprinting.
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles and Atty. Gen. Herbert
Brownell, acting on authority given them by Congress a month ago,
swept aside the pracitice of 15 years standing.
Can Get Visas
Dulles and Brownell ruled that in most cases foreigners yisiting
the United States for a year or less can be given visas without first
submitting to fingerprinting. The move seemed clearly aimed at

ix Disorderly
Students Held
Six University students were held
by police' yesterday morning for
being disorderly.
The students were Ronald San-
dilands, '58E, Peter .harkey,, '59,
Joseph Conn, '59, William Woods,
'59E' John Barber, '59E, and John
Rogarios, '60.
They were arrested in the alley
between Liberty and Washington
Streets, according to the police
The- report also said that all six
had been drinking, although only
one, Sandilands, was of age.
However, the police report said
that some of the students had been
attending a party at their frater-
nity ,house, Tau Kappa Epsilon,I
and that others had been at a
local, tavern.
The car/which they were in be-
longed to William 'Smink, '58Ed,
also a member of Tau Kappa Epsi-
lon. They were all released without!
charge, although the matter may
be taken' up with University au-
thorities, police said.

while twisting the proud New
Yorkers around his little finger.
As soon as Eddie Mathews
gloved Skowron's hard smash
down the third-base line and
stepped on third for the force
play that ended the game, a
swarm of cheering boys and men
surged onto the field.
Mathews leaped high in the air
to touch off the wildest victory
celebration in many a year.

In the past, "goon squads" con-

Rumors that one fraternity

for students studying abroad in their junior year with the possibility
of introducing such a plan at the University.
The Steering Committee has learned in its investigation into the
problem of the junior year abroad that many students on campus have
shown interest in the various plans, but that the expense, or the needed
