Reds Hint at Establishing

Moon Sation Shortly



U.S. Experts
Seek Study
Of Satellite
'Shocking' Apathy
Of Midwest Noted
hinted yestray, two weeks after
its successful launching of the
first earth satellite, that it hopes
to have a "lunar physical station"
on the moon shortly.
iUnited States scientists said this
present possibility.
Urge Study
United States scientists called
for more visual observations of the
satellite while one of them said he
was "shocked" at the complacent
attitude he said he recently en-
countered in the Midwest con-
cerning Russia's satellite launch-
ing feat.
A statement that Russia may
soon have a station .on the moon
came from Aleksandr Aleksandrov,
rector of Leningrad University. His
comment was made in a statement
bto the Soviet government news-
paper Izvestia which was broad-
cast from Moscow.
No Details Given
No details of the proposed moon
station were given. Presumably it
would be some sort of an auto-
matic unmanned station.
Commenting on the Russian
plan, Dr. J. Allen Hynek, associate
director of thie Smithsonian Astro-
physical Observatory, at Cam-
bridge, Mass., said the problem
be much more difficul t ha tat
of launching a satellite.
"It is very definitely in the
realm of present possibility," he
said, adding that a satellite would
have to be -launched into space at
seven miles a second to reach the
moon, compared with five miles a
second to orbit around the world.
Many Problems
The problem, he said, would be
in the controls to aim the satel-
lite at the moon and enable it to
land there without destroying it-
There has been considerable
\speculation the Russians might at-
tempt a moon rocket Nov. 7 to
mark the 40th anniversary of the
Bolshevik Revolution.
It was Dr. Hynek who said he
was "shocked" at complacency in
the Midwest. The complacency, he
said upon returning to Cambridge,
from a meeting at Columbus, Ohio,
was among laymen and not sci-
entists he met.
The attitude of the laymen, he:
said, appeared to be that "We had
lost the ball on the 40-yard line
but would surely win the ball

2 SGC Decisions
The Board in Review for Student Government Council will meet
tomorrow to consider SOC's motion to solicit faculty members for the
Campus Chest, and to hear an apepeal by Galens Medical Honorary
concerning the Council's definition of "campus boundaries "
SGC decided Wednesday nighit to solicit faculty members for
its Campus Chest Drive Oct. 27-Nov. 3.
It also defeated a motion to reconsider its definition of campus
boundariest for the Galens drive. 'The Council had included the State

The Assembly convened within

to open the debate on a convenient

SGC decided that since so many
students traversed this area, the
Galens drive would hurt the con-
cept of a "give-once-for all" cam-
pus Chest drive.
Joe Collins, SGC president, was
"disturbed" by the action of the
Board, and hqped there really was
"suficlent" reason to call it on
these issues.
The Board has been called be-

"SGO Not Realistic"
.Bob Jewett, '58M, Galens pres-
ident, said he was appealing the
refusal of SGC to reconsider Ga-
lens case. "We had hoped to keep
this on a student level," he said,
"but unfortunately it's obvious
that we can't."
He said Galens thought the
Council "has not been very re-
alistic" in the consideration of
the rights of the people of Ann
Arbor, who have traditionally
supported this group.
He explained that removal of
buckets from the State Street
area, would deprive many Ann
Arbor citizens of the opportunity

McElroy, who has been defense
boss for only 10 days, made known
his decision In a memorandum ad-
dressed to the secretaries of the
Army, Navy and the Air Force.
Preliminary Report
.McElroy said his preliminary
study of the missile program re-
vealed no regulations to hamper
progress in developing ballistic
weapons. But he said "it is ap-
tinuing attention tothe removal
or modification of any regulations
which could conceivably impede
progress." ..
McElroy told the service sec-
retaries to inform his guided mis-
siles assistants and ballistic mis-
sile committee "immediately of
any assistance" which any other'
serv'ice or the defense department
or any government agency can
provide "which will insure the
maintenance of our schedules."
Quick Aid
McElroy told the service chiefs
to advise him directly If they need-
ed any help on scientific problems
which might be impeding develop-
ment "so that we may obtain the
earliest po'ssible help" from sci-
entists within or outside of the

missile centers and witnessed fir-

for permission to use overtime In

Beckett Cites
A slight decrease in the num-
ber of students reporting to
Health Service in the past two
days is attributed to the advent
of Homecoming by Dr. Morley
Beckett, Health Service Director.
Dr. Beckett said that 240 pa-
tients with Upper Respiratory In-
fection were examined at the clin-
ic Thursday and about the same
number yesterday.
He said students coming to
Health Service now are "gener-
ally pretty sick. This indicates
that many more do not want to
miss weekend festivities in spite
of the fact that they are ill."
This decrease doesn't necessar-
ily mean the epidemic of the past
two weeks is declining, he said.
Flu Figures .

Department said yesterday that
Asian Flu has figured in the death
this fall of 14 persons, all older
people suffering from other serious
"In all deaths attributed to in-
fluenza an effort is being made to
obtain laboratory and post-mor-
tem confirmation that influenza
was the cause of death," the de-
partment said.

Daily Sports Editor
Michigan and Northwestern,
who have both been battling the
flu all week, will change foes and
take on each other at 1:30 today
before a Stadium Homecoming
crowd of 74,000-.
Both teams will be looking for
their first Conference victory in
today's game. Michigan lost it's
initial contest to MSU last week,
35-6. N o r t h w e s t e r n was also
downed last wveek by powerful
Minnesota, 41-0.
It is the 32nd meeting in a
series between the two teams.
Michigan has won 21, lost 8, and
tied two of these.
Both teams have been sorely
hit by sickness and injury. Mich--
igan's bout with the Asian 'bug'
began before the State game with
the conspicuous absence of Brad
Myers. It reached a peak during
this past week with 23 sniffling
on Wednesday, and is now slowly
tapering off.
Van Pelt, Teuscher Laid Up
Recently attacked and in health
service last night were first string
quarterback Jim Van Pelt and
second string end Chuck Teusch-
er. Both are expected to be re-
leased this morning, however, and
returned to action.
Definitely out is fullback John
Herrnstein. His' foot will not be
in playing shape for at least an-
other week, if not longer;.
On the practice field for a short
workout yesterday, the Wolver-
ines looked like an infirmary.
Wearing towels around their
necks to protect recovering res-
piratory tracts were Bob Ptacek,
Stan Noskin, Jerry Bushbng, Dale
Keller, and Myers.
Prahst, Shatusky Dtoubtful
Added to this list are Gary
Prahst, whose @ulled leg muscle
has not healed and Mike Shatus-
ky, whose back still troubles him
from the Michigan State game.
Oosterbaan conmments after
surveying the slate, "We're really
\in terrible shape."
On the other side of the fence,
Northwestern coach Ara Parsegh-
ian paints a picture just as sickly.
Wildcat Line Shuffled
Parsehgian's line has been al-
most thoroughly reshuffled. At
the ends will be Fred Williamson,
a sophomore second stringer, and
Cliff Peart.
At the tackles will be Ben Na-
polski, who usually plays at end,
and Pete Arena, who is normally
the regular right guard. Al Viola,

WASHINGTON (i) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower 'plans to

Western Allies.
He will do this in a determined
effort to win clear superiority

This was learned on excellent

"But we have ther power," he
said. "The only thing to. do is to

The Eisenhower-Macmillan con-
ference will begin Wednesday and
continue through Friday. It seems
certain that the conference will
end with a declaration In favor of
pooling scientific brainpower.
It also appears certain that the
conference will be followed by oth-
er high - level talks with other
members of the 15-nation North

how to set up new machinery to

NATO Scientists
One speculation is that Presi-
dent Eisenhower and Prime Min-
ister Macmillan may consider the
possibility of creating a NATO
council of scientists.
