Honor System
Vote Approved
SGC To Hold Student Referendim
On Proposed Literary College Trial
Student Government Council decided last night to hold a refer-
endum on the desirability of an experimental Honor System in the
literary college.
The student vote would-come after the honor system study com-
mittee had worked with the Literary College administrative board to
devise a feasible experimental program, which the Council would
then approve.
Voting, with the approval of the literary school board, would
probably take place in the class-room with all students in that col-

an honor system without having

Don Young, '58, Union presi-

for an education, they "should

should have a choice. And May-

Student Government Council
yesterday unanimously approved a
motion, which would instruct the"
Campus Chest Board, to organize
University faculty solicitations,,in,
this month's fund drive and au-
thorize the Board to "include in
its solicitations any sections of
Ann Arbor so desired."
The motion was made by Peter
Eckstein, '58, Daily editor, after
SGC received the program of the
Campus Chest drive, Oct. 27 to
Nov. 3.
The campus drive program was
outlined by Joe Sherman, '58,
Campus Chest Board chairman,
and included "personal soliciting
in University housing units," a,
two-day bucket drive, and special
events to publicize the drive and
collect funds. k
Methods Left to Houses
Methods of solicitations in the
housing units would be left to the
houses' discretion-w h e t h e r to
contribute as a whole house or ap-
point representatives to collect a
donation from each resident.
In discussing reason for expand-f
ing the chest drive beyond housing
units and central campus, Eck-
stein said, "Any Campus Chest
drive could logically, within the
definition of 'campus,' the faculty.
The State St. merchants might
also be included as a part of the
campus community."
Off Campus Solicitation
Eckstein added that if the Ann,
Arbor United Fund collects funds;
from the students, either through
direct solicitations or through ap-
propriations from Campus Chest,
the chest drive should. be allowed
to solicit funds in parts of the city
outside the campus.

Committee Requests Vote
The Honor System committee
had requested a vote after the
experimental program.
At the same meeting, which
ended at 1:10 a.m. today, Scott
Chrysler's motion to reconsider
Galens medical honorary charity
definition of Campus area for
drive, was defeated.
Last week SGC had prohibited
Galens from soliciting on the
State Street area from the cam-
pus to Huron, -because the Coun-
cil felt the people in this section
were primarily students. The
Council thought soliciting in this
area would violate its concept of
a Campus Chest drive, which is
designed to' ask charity funds for
students only once through the
school year.
Galens had requested the right
to have buckets for its city drive
on the corner of North Univer-
sity and State Street as they did
last year.
Right to Reach People
Bob Jewett, Galens president,
said fifty per cent of the people
who patronized stores in 'campus
town' were not students, and the
organization should have a right
to reach these people.
In response to a question by
Young, Jewett explained that the
group had not taken money from
Campus Chest after it was offered
because Galens had reached its
goal and did not want to hurt the
other organizations involved.

The Soviet Union called on the
United Nations yesterday to halt a
surprise attack on Syria allegedly
planned by the United States and
Russia offered to join other UN
members in supplying military
forces to meet such an attack.
The Russians charged that the

Follows Swift Developments
The Soviet accusation came on
the heels of these swift develop-
ments in the UN on the explosive
Middle East situation:
1. Syria informed UN Secretary
General Dak Hammarskjold that
an attack by Turkey was immi-
nent. Syria requested the 82-na-
tion General Assembly be called
into session immediately to ap-
point a UN commission to investi-
gate the situation on the tense
Turkish-Syrian frontier.
2. The United States quickly
endorsed the move to have ,the
Assembly consider the situation in
the MiddleEast. "A prompt inves-
tigation of the developments
should help to ease tensions as,
to clarify who it is that threatens
peace in the area," a spokesman,
for the United States delegation
at the UN said.

It was apparent that the Soviet
Union and Syria were making as*

The Soviet accusations against
the United States were contained
in a 1,200-word letter from Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromyko
to Sir Leslie Munro, president of
the Assembly. Copies of the letter
were distributed several hours af-l
tee the Syrian request for Assem-
bly action was released.
"There is reliable informationc
that the Turkish General Staff,
together with American advisers,N
has elaborated detailed plans forl
an attack by Turkey on Syria,<
their intention being to carry it
out immediately after the electionst
in Turkey on Oct. 27 of this year,"
Gromyko declared.

affairs, remained silent.C

Stop Disarmament
Prof. Morris Janowitz of the
sociology department said Russian
development of the ICBM has
made it necessary to redress a
psychological rather than an ac-
tual balance of global power. He
suggested stopping of disarmament
talk is one means to this end.
Directly disagreeing with him,
Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the
economics department said the

"The Red satellite hasn't per-
ceptably changed the situation.,
Basically, national defense has
broken d o w n and neither the
United States or Russia is big'

"improbable but possible" and will
require "some sort" of world gov-

jected idea or plan in the Soviet

ness of the Soviet structure.
He warned against thinking the
Soviets could not "go it alone"
without the aid of foreign scien-
tists. Their educational system is
geared to developing top special-
ists from Russian citizens, he said.

Failure Last Year j
Chrysler noted that the Cam-
pus Chest drive last year "was a
failure," and that Galens, a
strong group, should not subject
itself to dangerous "speculation."
The Council, however, defeated
the move, because so many stu-
dents did shop in the State Street
area, and Galens probably could
get money from the campus chest
if it wished to. It did not feel Ga-

Ypsilanti May,
Be Encircled
By New City
The Ypsilanti Township Board
h a s unanimously recommended
-that the township be incorporated
into a "new city" within the next
few ,months.
In action taken Tuesday night,
the board proposed that an area of
more than 30 square miles which
completely surrounds the present
city of Ypsilanti be 'formed into
a city so that necessary municipal
services can be provided to the
highly urbanized area.
The new municipality would
have a population of 22,000 and a
tax base of almost $100,000,000..
This would make it "one of the
richest per capita cities ever form-
ed in Michigan," according to
Donald W. Howe chairman of the
board's incorporation committee.
In the recommendation, which'
came as somewhat of a surprise,
the officials expressed hope that
incorporation into a city would
allow them to levy enough taxes to
meet the rising demands for im-
