Camus Awarded Nobel Prize


STOCKHOLM OP)--French au-
thor Albert Camus, advocate of
the classical Greek philosophy of
reason in an angry age, yesterday
won the 1957 Nobel Prize for Lit-
The Royal Swedish Academy of
Literature cited him for "his im-
portant literary production, which
with clear-sighted earnestness il-
luminates the problems of. the hu-
man conscience in our times."
Camus, 43 years old, is the
youngest to receive the interna-
tional prize since Rudyard Kipling
was chosen in 1907 at 41.
Biggest Prize Ever
The prize of more than $42,000
is the richest ever received by a
Nobel literature winner. The

amount depends on income from
a fund established by the late Al-
fred Nobel, Swedish inventor of
Camus told reporters in Paris
he hoped the award would enable
him to retire to an obscure ho-
tel five miles from the French
capital to write an educational
novel tentatively entitled "The
First Man."
"Its theme," he sad, "is simply
how to become a man. It will be
a story about love, but not in any
sentirrentr' fashion.
"I *tvi thatT am similar to mil-
lions of veoole and think like they
do and struggle with the same
problems," he said. "I believe I

Say Rocket
Nears Earth
WASHINGTON () - Russia's
space rocket was reported by ob-
servers yesterday to be whirling
along the skyways some 23 min-
utes ahead of the satellite it pro-
pelled into an orbit 13 days ago.
Three moonwatchers at the
Harvard Observatory spotted the
satellite at 5:17 a.m. EST at a
point in the sky where the third-
stage rocket had passed at 4:54
Scientists have said this indi-
cates the rocket itself is moving
nearer and nearer the earth in
ever smaller circles, that its rela-
tive speed increases as its orbit
Differ on Landing
There were differences of opin-
ion on how soon the rocket would
,move into earth atmosphere
heavy enough to plough it down-
ward in flames.
British astronomer A.C.B. Lov-
ell said in Manchester, England,
he is convinced "something catas-
trophic will happen to the rocket
very soon - possibly in a day or
But Dr. Fred L. Whipple, head
of the Smithsonian Astrophysical
Observatory at Cambridge, Mass.,
said the rock will stay up for at
least two months.
No Forecast
As for the satellite itself, hurled
aloft by the Soviets Oct. 4, Whip-
ple said its life expectancy could
not be forecast at this time.
Presumably it is continuing
alongsat an 18,000-mile-an-hour
pace in a track considerably out-
ward of the rocket's orbit.
A Russian scientist, who collab-
orated in launching the Soviet
moon, said in Paris it would stay
in the heavens "a very long time."
The scientist, Prof. Leonid Sedov,
also said he does not believe the
satellite is equipped to photograph
the earth:
Pinay Forms
New Cabinet
PARIS (A) - Antoine Pinay last
night named a Cabinet to govern
France and reserved the three top
ministries for himself.
If the National Assembly ap-
proves Pinay would be premier
and foreign and finance minister
in a cabinet with 12 other men.
Two other ex-premiers, Rene
Pleven and Paul Reynaud, report-
edly refused to serve as foreign

The Premier-designate goes be-
fore Parliament for endorsement
today. He mustered his Cabinet
by telephone during the day. It
would be perhaps the smallest
France has ever had.

Through the first three days of
this week 970 University students
with Upper Respiratory Infection
have been examined in Health
Service Clinic.
Dr. Morley Beckett, H e a t h
Service Director, said "we are in-
formed that the numbers of stu-
dents in campus sick in bed must
exceed 2,000."
Noting the increase in the cur-
rent Asian Flu epidemic. Dr. Bec-
kett, sent a progress report on the
status of the disease to University
President Harlan Hatcher.
Some Pneumonia
Although the current infection
is, on the whole, mild, the report
said, "there are a good number of
patients who become very acutely
sick and a few pneumonias have
developed." None of these patients
are in dangerous condition, Le
Due to the high proportions of
illness in residence halls two resi-
dent physicians from University
Hospital were assigned to Health
Service in the past 24 hours.
"This action," Dr. Beckett said,
"will make it possible for medical
calls on residence halls, frater-
nities and sororities where great
numbers of students are presently
in bed."
Students Sent to Residences
He said students "who do not
definitely require infirmary care

being utilized to full extent and
the infirmary "remains full at all

Alerts Army
DAMASCUS, Syria (/) - Syria
put its army on the alert yesterday
and armed civilian groups but de-
cided against national mobilization
to meet what is called a Turkish
threat on the Syrian border.
Government sources said the
Syrian Cabinet considered general
mobilization at an hour-long meet-
ing at the home of Prime Minister
Sabri Assali, then ruled it out as
Syria's acting foreign minister,
Khalil Kallas, also told reporters
that a new Turkish note denies
any Turkish military threat to
Turkey 'Concerned'
Kallas said the note delivered by
Turkish Minister Adnan Kural also
said Turkey is concerned over what
is happening in Syria. Kallas called
that statement "interference in
our affairs" and said there will be
a counter-reply tomorrow.
Kallas said the note did not
deny the presence of Turkish troop
concentrations along the Syrian
border, insisting only that they
were troop movements that con-
cern Turkey alone.
But high Syrian officials private-
ly expressed a belief that the Turks
will not attack Syria, despite pub-
lic statements of alarm over the
Turkish troop concentrations.
No Mobilization
A government spokesman said
the fact the 50,000-man Syrian
army is on the alert means only
that leave for officers has been
canceled. He stressed that not even
partial mobilization of the army is
under way.
The arms for civilians are going
to thousands of members of the
Popular Resistance Movement who
have had a smattering of military
The arms are being distributed
in Aleppo, Homs, Latakia, Hama

Saud Talks
To Leaders
BEIRUT, Lebanon (A') - King
Saud of Saudi Arabia discussed
the Syrian-Turkish crisis yesterday
with government heads of Syria
and Lebanon, his advisers reported.
Saud talked by telephone for 15
minutes with President Shukri Ku-
watly of Syria in Damascus, then
met with President Camille Cha-
moun of Lebanon in the mountain
resort of Alby.
The King's advisers said Turk-
ish-Syrian development of the past
24 hours were the subject in both
An official source said, however,
that Saud's immediate concern on
his state visit there is to persuade
Lebanon and Syria to patch up
their differences,
In his role of peacemaker among
the Arab states, Saud was said to
have urged a meeting between
Chamoun and Kuwatly.
Informed sources said the Saudi
monarch expressed the view that
settlement of the Lebanese-Syrian
quarrel would clear the way for a
needed summit conference of the
heads of Arab states.

Economic Historian U.S. Plotting
Calls Hamilton Patriot Aggression

UN General Assembly To Meet
For Discussin on Mle Est;
uso nMdl asSyria Claims Imminent Threat

An Alexander Hamilton portrait
sharply varying from the. con-
temporary view of him was drawn
yesterday by Prof. Broadus Mitch-
ell of Rutgers University, state
university of New Jersey.
The noted economic historian
said Hamilton was not the leader
of special economic interest
groups, but rather a first class
patriot who worked tediously and
strenuously for the. United States
during its early years.
He is the first of two lecturers
to appear here in honor of Ham-
ilton's bicentennial. The second
lecture will be Nov. 7.
Long, Vigorous Fight
Prof. Mitchell outlined Hamil-
ton's long and vigorous fight to
establish a federal government.
He said Hamilton was willing to
accept the Constitution, although
it fell far short of his own beliefs.
Even though his own ideas for
a very strong central government
were rejected by the Constitution-
al convention, he worked for con-
ciliation of differing proposals
and persuaded reluctant delegates
to accept the Constitution, Prof.
Mitchell said.
Fund Drive
The University All o c at ions

charities which will receive funds
from the Campus Chest drive,

-Daily-Robert Kanner
.. . terms Hamilton patriot
"As a delegate to New York
state's convention to ratify the
Constitution, Hamilton persuaded
a nearly monolithic opposition to
approve it."
Supported Jefferson
Hamilton's support of Thomas
Jefferson for the presidency over
Aaron Burr in 1800 was described
as "a supreme act of patriotism,
something no little man does."
Prof. Mitchell explained that
Hamilton was much nearer Burr
politically than he was Jefferson.
But he said that Jefferson and
Hamilton had a "certain mutual
respect and admiration for each
other" despite their wide political
differences. He added that both
in later life retracted some of the
scathing things each had said
about the other.
Davies Sayvs
N' to Suit
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (oP)-A law-
suit seeking to stop United States
troops from enforcing integration
at Central High School was thrown
out Thursday by United States
District Judge Ronald N. Davies.
The suit asked for appointment
of a special three-judge court and
a ruling for Mrs. Margaret Jack-
son and her two teen-aged daugh-
ters that federal troops were being
used unconstitutionally in enforc-
ing court-ordered integration at
Little Rock Central High School.

Royal Pair
tain's Queen Elizabeth won a warm
welcome from Washington yester-
day, and responded with every evi-
dence that she was thoroughly en-
joying herself.
Only once was her gaiety sub-
dued-she became gravely solemn
during tha tribute in Arlington Na-
tional Cemetery to the war dead.
Otherwise, from the time she
alighted with her handsome Prince
Philip at National Airport until the
minutely scheduled day was over,
the keynote was festivity.
There was the parade from the
airport to the White House, in
which she was cheered all along
the way.
There was a reception given in
her and the Prince's honor by the
Washington news corps.
And at the day's end, there was
a state dinner at the White House
with President and Mrs. Dwight D.
Eisenhower hosts to 93 guests din-
ing on filet of English sole and

Syrian-Turkish Crisis
Receives Top Billing
The 82-nation. General Assembly
and its Steering Committee last
night called meetings for today to
arrange debate on Syria's demand
for an inquiry in the Middle East
The immediate issue is Syrian-
Turkish tensions.
The 17-member Steering Com-
mittee, composed of the president,
vice presidents and departmental
committee chairman of the As-
sembly, is expected to give quick
approval to having an Assembly
To Ratify Decision
The Assembly meets immedi-
ately afterward to ratify the
Steering Committee decision and
set the time for beginning debate.
The United States, Britain and
oher Western nations have said
they welcomed the inquiry. The
United States has already begun
urgent consultations with others
in an effort to spolight the role
of the Soviet Union behind Syria.
To set the stage the Assembly
must ratify whatever action its
Steering Committee takes. In view
of both East-West and Arab-Asian
support of the Syrian demand,
there was no doubt that the de-
bate on the inquiry would be
authorized in. some form by the
entire Assembly.
Weekend Session?
There were indications that ex-
traordinary sessions may be held
in the weekend if the debate gets
into full swing.
Syria claimed to be in danger
of imminent attack from Turkey.
The Soviet Union supported Sy-
ria and accused the United States
of plotting aggression.
A Turkish note delivered in
Damascus denied any Turkish in-
tent to attack Syria.

WASHINGTON (A) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower and British
Prime MinistersHarold Macmillan
announced yesterday that they
will meet in Washington next week
for a conference.
There appeared to be no doubt
that the Middle East crisis, which
has recently brought blunt war
warnings from both Moscow and
Washington, will be the prime sub-
ject for discussion and possible
policy decisions by the British and
American government leaders.
The bare announcement gave no
hint of the reason for the confer-
ence which caught most State De-
partment officials and the Wash-
ington diplomatic corps by sur-
Macmillan will fly to Washing-
ton Tuesday. The White House
said the meetings between Presi-
dent Eisenhower and him will take
place Wednesday through Friday.
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles and British Foreign Secre-
tary Selwyn Lloyd will participate.
The announcement was made
about three hours after President
Eisenhower welcomed Queen Eliz-

Bicycle Parking Rules
Change Now in Effect
Students hopping off their bicycles this morning at the Frieze
Building were among the first to find out that bicycles can no longer
be parked on the sidewalks there.
A lieutenant in the Ann Arbor Traffic Department explained the
no parking signs had been posted because many people had com-
plained they could not walk on the sidewalks with so many bicycles
parked on it.
He added that at the present time there are not enough bike racks
to accommodate the bicycles parked there.
Racks Not Used
Walter Roth, plant department superintendent, commented that
there were bike racks in front of the building but "they have not
been used by the students." An-
other .plant department official
" said that while there are not
enough bike racks at present the'
bicycles "have to be kept off the
