WASHINGTON (P)-Counsel for
a group of protesting Teamsters
members claimed yesterday that
over 600 delegates to the union's
recent convention were seated il-
legally to rig the election of James

The attorney, Godfrey P.

trict Judge F. Dickinson Letts
there "never was a group of more
complacent 'yeah men' ever gath-
ered together anywhere."
Schmidt said at least 478 of the

to have been illegally seated, and
another 128 could be proved im-

Wilitaims Firm
Tells Dealings
With Hoodlum
LANSING, (A) - Gov G. Men-
nen Williams today disclosed that
a firm of which he is a director
had dealings with labor racketeer
Johnny Dio.
Dio and his associates "victim-
ized" Mennen Co., a Morristown,
N.J., toiletries firm, and its em-
ployes, Gov. Williams said.
Writing to Sen.-John L. McClel-
lan (D-Ark.) chairman of the
Senate R a c k e t s Investigation
Committee, the governor said he
had decided to publicize the story
"because it shows how a busi-
ness firm, operating in good faithi
can find itself' dealing with
racketeers under the guise of la-
bor organization." Sen. McClel-
lan's committee, he said, already
has been apprised of the situation.

TWENTIETH CENTURT ARCHITECT-Frank Lloyd Wright speaks to a group of eager architecture
students at the University's architecture college. He characterizes his orgaic architecture as the only
truly American twentieth century style in existence, and calls the campus he designed for Florida

Hall in that City's Civic Center,
but Wright, at his non-conforming
best, turned it into a ten-hour
marathon of pungent comments
on any and every subject.
The high point - for all con-
cerned - came late In the evening
when he addressed an awe-struck
group of about 300 architecture
students in the architecture build-
Students 'Waste Time'
"Addressed" is not quite the
word. What he actually did was to
tell them they were wasting their
time, that they did not know the
first thing about architecture, and
that not one of them would know
a great piece of architecture when
he saw one. They loved it.
"There is nothing I can do for
you," he said. "There is nothing I
can do for any school."
He was referring to his main
complaint, against architecture -
Euroe Study
]Plan Praised
By Director
"The junior year abroad plan is
wonderful; I'd like to see it at the
University," Prof. James M. Da-
vis, Director of the Interrational
Center, told the Literary College
Steering Committee yesterday.
For supervision of the year of
study in Europe, faculty members
would accompany any group
sponsored by the University, he
"This plan would ensble the
faculty to work and vacation in
Europe. This would give stimula-
tion and new life to their teaching
at home. The University could
thereby build up a rich resource
for improving its. total teaching
after a period of years," Prof.
Davis noted.
The junior year abroad plan
is "a revolutionary approach to
curriculum," Prof. Davis . con-
tinued. If conducted in Europe,
the plan would add to the Univer-
sity's' prestige, which now ranks
"relatively low in their conception,
of American universities," he
In talking of a junior year plan
in Asia, the director observed that
a plan of this type would be "a
unique contribution" to national
junior year programs since no
other school conducts one in Asia.
At their next meeting the
Steering Committee will discuss
-the information they have re-
ceived so far, and attempt to se-
lect the area in which the pro-,
gram the University might insti-
tute will take place, according to

key and Syria last night were re-
ported accepting the offer of
Arabia's King Saud to mediate
their border crisis.
Saudi Arabia officially an-
nounced the two countries had
agreed the king should step in.
Turkey announced its accept-
ance here while the Syrians in the
United Nations still declined to
make it official on the basis of
what they had heard from home.
Meeting Today
This word came as Sir Leslie
Munro, president of the 82-nation
General Assembly, called a meet-
ing for this afternoon to begin
debate on the Middle East prob-
Turkish Anibassador Seyfullah
Esin said his government had in-
formed the Saudi Arabian mon-
arch that it was prepared to take
part in mediation efforts. Esin
heads Turkey's UN delegation.
But Syria denied published re-
ports that Damascus had agreed
to mediation now.
A statement from the Syrian
UN delegation said such reports
are "not in conformity with fact."
Accept Offer
In Washington, the Saudi Ara-
bian Embassy issued a statement
Syria had accepted the mediation
saying that both Turkey and
effort and that a Syrian delega-
tion would meet Saud within the
next two days.
A spokesman at the Syrian Em-
bassy said the embassy had no
direct word from Damascus, but
he 'considered the Saudi Arabian
information as accurate. United
States officials also said that
Syria as well as Turfcey had
agreed to the mediation.
Western delegates conferred
privately on the best way to coun-
ter Syria's Soviet-backed charge
that Turkey is about to start war
in the Middle East.
Diplomats at the UN believed
Syria wanted a full airing r of its
charges in the Assembly before
considering any other course.

'Faculty Jurisdiction'
" Prof. Laing commented perhaps
the Council's action was a "reach-

"objected to the whole business."
He thought that it was possible
that next year the Council would
"push Galens back into the Hos-
pital. ?
However, he noted again, that
the Board had to follow the "letter
of the law" and should not over-
rule SGC.
Collins commented that SGC
also had to operate "within the
letter of the law." That is what
the Board is for, he-,continued, "to
see that we do. If we don't, it is up
to the Board to correct us."
Jewett Speaks
Collins invited Bob Jewett, 58K
Galen's president, to explain to
the Council why it thought it had
been denied the right to appeal.
Jewett told of Galens request last
March for a campus and city drive,
which was postponed by the Coun-
cil until the definite arrangements
had been made for Campus Chest.
He said that he had not received
a letter from Collins on the new
delineation of boundaries prescrib-
ed by the Council until six days
after the action had been taken.
Collins indicated this was standard
policy, since the action was not
final until the Board had had a
chance to review it.
