'Rises 109 Miles
The mighty, Vanguard rocket ex-
pected to shoot an American arti-
a ficial moon into orbit was put
through another successful test
yesterday, rising 109 miles into
w┬░the air.-
At 2:24 p.m. the bullet-shaped
pad with a dull roar, rose slowly
; into the sky, then picked up speed
before disappearing into an over-
cast out over the Atlantic. It was
visible only about 40 seconds.
Satellite in December
' The United States Government
says the Vanguard will put a
pint-sized satellite into orbit with.
Russia's Sputnik in December and
will launch a fully-instrumented
} moon by next March.
The Vanguard is being devel-
oped by the Navy which said in
Washington the missile'soared 109
miles high. Its peak speed was
given as 4,250 m.p.h. after 140 sec-
onds of thrust by the single en-
" Fell Into Atlantic
The remains fell into the Atlan-
tic, 328 miles off the coast, Re-
cording instruments were in-
stalled in the engine.
Yesterday's rocket, officially
known as Test Vehicle Two (TV2),
was the first Vanguard with the
external appearance the final
launching vehicle will have.
Its main purpose was to test the
first stage engine and evaluate
the performance of other .Van-
guard instruments.
Other Firings
Test Vehicle Zero, fired last
Dec. 8, was designed to test
equipment and instruments. It
reached a speed of 4,000 m.p.h.
and reached an altitude of 125
miles in a 180-mile flight.
Last May 1, Test Vehicle One
was fired in a high ahitde sepa-
ration experiment. A Viking rock-
et was used for the first stage and
a medium propellant rocket as
the second part. Both earlier tests
were described as successful.
Four more test shots are
planned in December. Any of
these might put small aluminum
spheres into orbit.
Further evidence of the relaxed
restrictions on news about the
U.S. missile program came short-
l'y after yesterday's firing when
both the Defense, Department in
Washington and Patrick Air
Force Base in Florida issued state-
ments confirming the Vanguard
test was made and was successful.
New Research

By Air Force
Force said yesterday it has suc-
cessfully fired a rocket high above
the'Pacific in project "Far Side"
after four failures.
However, the Air Force would
not confirm a report by the Los
Angeles Examiner that the rocket
soared 4,000 miles above the
earth. The newspaper said the
four-stage rocket was sent aloft
from a balloon at an altitude of
100,000 feet over Eniwetok Island.
The figures conformed to the
plan announced by the Air Force
on Sept. 17.

The Air Force said the success-
ful test took place Oct. 21 and
"extensive data was obtained."
It added that the data has not
been evaluated and no figures
will be made public "before noon

Campus Chest Benefits
'U' Fresh A ir Camp
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of four articles describing
the charities which will receive funds from the Campus Chest drive begin-
ning Monday.)
The University Fresh Air Camp is a far outpost of the University
campus, both in its geographical location and in its service to com-
munities throughout Michigan.
The camp is situated 26 miles northwest of Ann Arbor at Pat-
terson Lake. Each summer children go there from state mental hos-
pitals, child guidance clinics, and the Ann Arbor Family Service for

U nion Heads'
R igElection,
Letts Rules
District Judge F. Dickinson Letts
ruled yesterday that Teamsters
Union bosses conspired to rig the
recent convention which elected
James R. Hoffa president of the
Letts issued a preliminary in-
junction co tihuing a ban on Hof-
fa and) the other newly-elceted
union officers from taking office
until there is a trial of the case
on its merits.
Monday Deadline
The 82-year-old judge set Mon-
day as the deadline for pre-trial
motions and said he will fix the
actual trial date as soon as pos-
sible thereafter.
In his order, Letts refused to
put the giant union in the hands
of court-appointed receivers and
tie up its funds. This had been
sought by the 13-man New York
Teamsters group which took the
case against Hoffa's election to
Martin O'Donoghue, the Team-
sters attorney, bitterly protested
the judge's findings. He said he
would appeal to the United States
Court of Appeals today.
"Didn't Hear Proof"
Judge Letts, O'Donoghue said,
has practically branded as illegal
the entire union convention and
everything it did-without hearing

placed a temporary restraining

Prof. William C. Morse of the
psyhcology department, director
of the camp, described the camp-
ing experience as a "chance for
the child to have fun," and to give
him something which he could
not obtain from living in insti-
Varied Functions
Prof. Morse also listed the vari-
ous functions of the camp -
training c o u n s e 1 o r s, research,
training teachers who are "going
to be on the firing line," and serv-
ing state and local agencies.
The University pays for the
training programs and the ad-
ministration and maintenance of
the camp. Agencies pay for a por-
tion of the child's camp stay,
leaving about $140 per child to be
paid for by outside contributions.
Need $10,000
Prof. Morse estimated that
$10,000 in contributions will be
needed to finance the child camp-
ing program. Fresh Air Camp will
receive fifty per cent of the pro-
ceeds of the Campus Chest drive,
beginning Monday and lasting
through the week.
"It's easy to obtain money for
crippled children, but to obtain
money for children with crippled
feelings and emotions is another
thing," Prof. Morse commented.
'U' Students Helped
He added that much of the
work in establishing the Fresh Air
Camp was done by University stu-
dents. Lewis Reimann, formerly
of the Student Christian Associa-
tion, founded the camp and it was
incorporated into the University
curriculum in 1937.
The Fresh Air Camp property
contains about 300 acres of vir-
gin hardwood forest, 26 perman-
ent buildings, boats, tents, and
other camping equipment.

The high point of the program
was a roll call of 36 nations an-
swered by foreign students at the
University as representatives of
their homeland.
Used Native Tongue
Each, when called on, expressed
his feelings about the world 'or-
ganization in his own language,
and then repeated his statement
in English.
Most significant was the pres-
ence of a Hungarian student who
appeared on the anniversary of
his nation's unsuccessful attempt,
to throw off the Russian bond.
Read a Prayer
Prof. Preston W. Slosson, of the
history department and Rabbi
Julius Weinberg read a prayer
written 4y Prof. Slosson which
asked that "nation shall not lift
up sword against nation, even
though there may be war seeds
in the human heart."
President Hatcher, speaking to
Ann Arbor as a community for
the first time, expressed hope that
"the United Nations will mold the
the world into one from out of
the many," in the main speech of
the evening.
He recalled that l'- such a
body as the United Nations
existed in 1914 there would pos-
sibly have been no World War I.
Cites Middle East
Continuing, the president cited
the recent developments in the
Middle East as a prime reason for
having "a place to debate, explore,
and isolate world disputes before
they grow into a war."
"If it wasn't for the United Na-
tions, a hot war,,would probably
be raging between Syria and Tur-
key right at this moment," he

Fmous Poet
To Address
Student Body
Carl Sandburg, the famous
American poet, will deliver the
"kick off" speech for International
Week Nov. 5, Bob Arnove, '59, co-
chairman of the International Co-
ordinating Committee told Student
Government Council last night.
The ICC, Arnove said, plans an
International Week which will in-
clude coffee hours and dinners for
foreign students at housing units,
a "world's fair," variety show,
possibly a soccer game, and a
speech by Eleanor Roosevelt.
Administration Veto
Maynard Goldman, '59, treas-
urer, told the Council that Cam-
pus Chest Board had planned three
special events to be held during the
drive. All were vetoed by the ad-
ministration. These were the op-
portunity to smash up an old car
on the diag for a fee; a kissing
booth and professors shining shoes.
Assistant Dean of Men John
Bingley told The Daily that all
three were "improper."
Because of concern about its
effectiveness SGC also decided to
postpone subsequent publication of
"SGC Review" a newsletter to
students, until a ,survey could be
taken to learn the best way to
reach students..
SGC Column?
The Public Relations Committee
was asked to look into the possible
purchase of Daily space for some
kind of column to explain SGC
Scott Chrysler, '59, said The
Daily followed a policy of printing
all news, both "good and bad" and
perhaps the column could carry
information which would help the
student "gain confidence" in SGC.
Hillelzapoppin Again
The Council also rescheduled
Hillelzapoppin, a skit show spon-
sored by Hillel foundation for May
Cinema Guild Board announced
the purchase of new equipment
and gained approval of a policy
change which would place more
money in an "investment fund."

This more than erased the esti-
mated six and one-half billion
dollar loss of the past two days,
most suffered Monday in the worst,
sell-off since the session immedi-
ately following President Dwight
D. Eisenhower's September 1955
heart attach.
Yesterday's rise was the beston
average since Nov. 14, 1929-the
day of a temporary rebound from-
the historic crash.
The rally was attributed by Wall
Streeters largely to a resurgence
of confidence based on President
Eisenhower's announced plans to
make a series of speeches reaf-
firming faith in the United States

University professors contacted
last night expressed surprise at the
resignation yesterday of attorney
general Herbert A. Brownell, Jr.
Prof. Joseph E. Kallenbach of
the political science department
noted that rumors had circulated
"for a considerable time" that
Brownell wanted to return to pri-
vate practice. However, he observed
that criticism of the handling of
the Little Rock affair might have
been a factor in Brownell's resig-
'Just A Guess'
Emphasizing that the latter
opinion was "just, a guess," Prof.
Kallenbach said that much South-
ern resentment at the sending of
troops had been difected toward
Brownell, who was thought to be
the person responsible for Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower's deci-
"Brownell may have resigned to
take the heat off the President,"
Prof. Kallenbach said. "However, I
have no inside track as to his mo-
Prof. George Peek of the politi-
cal science department also sug-
gested that personal reasons may
have been uppermost in Brownell's
mind. "At the time of President
Eisenhower's second inaugural,
the attorney general remarked
that he was serving at great per-
sonal expense," Prof. Peek said.
'Rogers Logical Ma'
Prof. Peek said he believed dep-
uty attorney general William P.
Rogers, was the "logical person"
for the position. The White House
had announced that Rogers would
be appointed to succeed Brownell.
Other professors had no com-
mlent. Prof. Samuel D. Estep of the
Law School voiced the reaction of
several of his colleagues when he
said that he didn't have any idea
what the implications of the res-
ignation would be.

WASHINGTON (P) - Herbert
Brownell Jr. resigned yesterday as
United States attorney general.
He said the settling of federal
policy in the Little Rock school
integration dispute freed him to'
return to private law practice.
The White House said Presi-
dent Dwight D. Eisenhower ac-
cepted the resignation and will
appoint Dep. Atty. Gen. William
P. Rogers Jr. to the Cabinet post.
Rogers is a close friend of Vice
President Richard N. Nixon.
May Leave Soon'
Just when he will relinquish his
office was not announced. How-
ever, Brownell suggested in a let-
ter to President Eisenhower that
he would be ready to step out in
two weeks.
The White House said Brownell
will rejoin the New York City law
firm of Lord, Day & Lord, which"
he left to enter the Cabinet.
It said he would act as an ad-
viser to the firm for two years,
instead of as a partner, because
of the conflict of interest law bar-
ring former federal officials from
handling government cases.
Brownell will deal only with non-
governmental matters, the. White
House said.
No Ambitions
Brownell held an informal news
conference shortly after his resig.-'

claimed any ambition for further
