~Reading fromh a prepared text
during most of the address, Sen.
Knowland reviewed accomplish-
nMents of the recent Congr ss and
the Eisenhower Administration
since it came to power in 1953.
Significant Legislation
Sen. Knowland described the
civil rights legislation passed in
the last session of Congress as
"historic" and only those who re-
alize that it is the only such
measure enacted in 82 years "can
appreciate its significance."

"It seemed to me that the time
had come to give the 48 states .. .
and the 96 senators ... a chance
to debate, to vote, and to deter-
mine this great question of public
policy . .
Saying the problem was not
easy because the Republicans, be-
ing a minority, did not control
the machinery' of Congress, he
said the key issue came on placing
the issue on the Senate calendar.
The issue before Congress, Sen.
Knowland exclaimed, was wheth-
er the Constitution applies in all,
sections of the nation and wheth-
er the 15th -Amendment can be
nullified in certain areas.
"Basically, the states, have the
right to determine voting quali-
fications but once the qualifica-
tions are established they must be
applied equally and to all the citi-
zens," he explained.
In international affairs, Sen.
Knowland said the Eisenhower
Administration "with bi-partisan
cooperation by the Congress, has
strengthened the collective de-
fense system which had its start
under bi-partisan sponsorship un-
der the previous Administration."
Increase in Communists'
He noted the large increase in
Communist dominated peoples
since the end of World War II
and said that the executive and
Congress have made attempts at
not permitting the free world to
be "nibbled away bit by bit."
He cited the Mutual, Defense
Pact with the Republic of China
on Formosa and the Southeast
Asia Pact as examples of the Ad-
ministration's action In this area.
Actions of the present Admin-
istration were contrasted with
previous Administrations by the
Administration of Integrity
Since President Dwight D.
Eisenhower took over, he said,
"We have had live years of peace
with honor, three successive bal-
anced budgets, our economy out
from under OPA controls, a tax
cut in 1954 of seven billion dol-
lars, ....an Administration of in-
tegrity, the largest peacetime em-
ployment in th'e nation's history."

Sir Adcock
Cites Rome
Senate Role
The Roman senate gained con-
trol of the republic's foreign pol-
icy by effectively exercising power
at its disposal when Hannibal's
armies threatened Rome, Sir
Frank E. Adcock told a lecture
audience yesterday.
Prof. Adcock, former professor
of ancient history at Cambridge
University and well-known author
of books on Greece and Rome,
was presenting his talk on "The
Authority of the Senate," third in
a series on Roman political insti-
tutions, this year's Thomas Spen-'
cer Jerome lectures.
At the time of the war with
Carthage, Prof. Adcock explained,'
it was necessary for the senate to
control diplomacy, finance and
troop movement. Since the war
lasted 60 years, senate control of
these areas became accepted.
Independent generals and war-
ring families complicated domes-
ic politics and were the objects of
a popular reaction bolstering the
senate's power. Scipio needed sen-
ate support to prevail over oppo-
nents of his eventually success-
ful tactics for winning the war
with Carthage.
"No legislation was ever en-
acted to thus increase the power
of the senate in matters of poli-
cy," Prof. Adcock pointed out.
, Prof. Adcock's fourth lecture,
to be presented tomorrow at 4:15
in the Rackham Amphitheatre,
will continue where yesterday's
left off. It will be entitled "The
Age of Revolution."
'U' Regents Attend

SRC Finds
Of Attitude
The traditional business maxim
that teamwork pays off in the of-
fice as well as on the playing
fields must now be qualified.
A report from the University's
Survey Research Center discloses
that the attitude of the group to-
ward their company is equally im-
When a closely-knit group feels
the company has their best inter-
ests at heart they demonstrate ex-
ceptional productivity.
On the other hand, when a co-
hesive team felt insecure in their
jobs production tailed off.
Another finding of the center
concerns the value of getting
along with others.
Often, the social scientists dis-
covered, supervisors who show
little real concern for their work-
ers still achieve high production
totals by demonstrating their
ability to get things done with
higher management. The result-
ing 'respect can be far more con-
structive than friendly relations
with the workers.
However, Prof. Robert Kahn;
human relations program direc-
tor, points out the responsibility
for hearing supervisors' com-
plaints and recommendations lies
with the management.
Delegation of authority was
likewise . investigated. Research
disclosed that little difference
need occur between the produc-
tivity of a group where authority
is delegated down and one in
which tight control is exercised.
The primary benefit to delegation
of authority would appear to be
an increase in morale.
Kahn explained,? "Those in the
tightly controlled group produced
- despite resentment - because
they felt they had no other, al-
