Floats were judged on the ba-
sis of beauty, humor, originality,
theme and workmanship. Students
worked far into the night, Friday,
to put the finishing touches on
The parade's climax came with
the appearance of the Homecom-

four member court, Gail Ponte
waved to the approving crowd.
Gail, a second semester sopho-

slight favorite before the crucial
conference game. An estimated
crowd of 4,000 cheering fans wit-

Sparked by high scoring quar-

romped over the tough Southern
Illinois team. At the sound of the
final buzzer, the scoreboard read

Shivering slightly, Gail Ponte
thanked the students for the high
honor they had bestowed upon

warmth of a coat and the stands.

Associated Press Financial Writer
NEW YORK-The stock market
was all even by the end of this
week after one of the most hectic
five-day periods in histroy.
The Associated Press average of
60 stocks closed at $156.70, un-
changed from the week before.
But volume soared to 20,804,199
shares, the highest total since the
week ended Oct. 1, 1956. That was
the first week after President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's heart at-
The outstanding highlights of
the week were two days-Monday
On Monday, stocks took their
worst dive since Sept. 26, 1955-
the first trading session after the
heart attack of President Eisen-
On Wednesday, the market made
its biggest one-day advance since
Dec. 14, 1929.
The latter was a day of tem-
porary recovery following the
blackest days of the depression
crash. This was a climatic week
in the long decline, now well into
its fourth month, since the market
reached its highest point on July
The tremendous volume, the re-
peated series of late ticker tapes,
the almost frenzied scale of buying
on the heaviest days-these were
the factors that spelled climax in
the language of WallStreet.
It was a climax to a long decline
-but what next? A strong re-
covery? A continued decline slide
to new lows for the year?
The word among financial ana-
lysts these days is that the market
must "test" the lows reached this
If it sinks through time, the
market is in for a continued de-
cline; if it rebounds, then the
prospects are good for a fairly sus-
In this case, predictions call for
a recovery of one-third to two-
thirds of the ground lost since
After that, they say, the burden
of proof will be on the bulb~ as to
whether the market is to continue
its progress. They point out that
ever since the all-time bull market
high, reached in April 1956, the
general trend has been downward.
The highs have never surpassed
that April '56 high. The lows have
been increasingly lower.
There was no special news to
send the market plummeting on
Club To Hear
Prof. Ackley '
Prof. Gardner Ackley of the
economics department will speak
on "Economic Problems of Post-
war Italy" at 8 p.m. tomorrow in
the Rackham amphitheater.
He recently returned from a
year's stay in Italy on a Fulbright
Monday but rather an accumula-
tion of the same kind of doubtful
news about business and the econ-
omy in general.
There were further reports of
cutbacks, "stretch-outs" and lay-
offs which underlined Wall Street's
concern about tight money.
The steel industry's operating
rates slipped below 80 per cent of
Stock prices, already relatively
low for new investors or short-
term traders, began to slip. Selling
begat more selling. Despite the
high margin requirements for
stock purchases, brokerage houses
began sending out calls for more
margin. In distress cases, this mar-
gin was not forthcoming and these
"weak accounts" were cleaned out.
On Tuesday a vigorous early
rally washed-out by afternoon and
prices slid off moderately, but it
was a turbulent session with trad-
ing volume up to 5,090,000 shares,
a two-year daily record.
President Dwight Eisenhower's
speech that night in which he bade
Americans 'banish "morbid pessi-
mism" and announced his inten-
tion of making a series of affirma-
tive speeches on the nation's econ-
omy, defense and scientific
achievements was generally re-
garded as the turning point.
Rally Recalls 1929
The market rebounded. The as-
tounding Wednesday rally was one
for the history books. It was the
biggest in 28 years-the biggest
since '29. But mention of that
tragic year brought an undercur-
rent of mumblings among investors
and commentators. Any connection
with the 1929 events is unwelcome
in Wall Street. The resemblance
between the current period and '29

'U' Students Travel Abroad; Study at Vienna
Many University students await
the day they will be able to trav-
Others dream of attending a
foreign university at some future
date. Richard Jasinski '60 and
Arthur Simon '58 did both last
Attending the University of Vi-
enna under the auspices of the
Institutene ofEuropean Studies,
they observed Europe's education-
al facilities and customs first
Sent by IES
They were two of 60 IES spon-
sored students traveling and
studying abroad. Austrian families
housed then Americans during
their stay in Vienna.
"For the first semester, we lived
with a widowed Czechoslovakian
refugee. Her home had no bath or
hot water and our room was heat-
ed by a coal-fired stove," Jasinski
The students eat lunch and din-
ner together at IFS headquarters
in downtown Vienna but live with
their Austrian hosts. Separate
study facilities, classrooms and a
library are available in an IES
building that formerly was the
home of a Hapsburg duke.
Has No Campus
"The University of Vienna has
no campus as we think of one,"
Simon explained. "There is only
one main building and no univer-
sity dormitories for the students."
Students show a great deal of
respect for their professors, many
of which are of the old nobility,
Jasinski said. "The dean of the
school was once a baron. My rid-
ing instructress once claimed the
title of 'baroness.'
"When the professor enters the
classroom or lecture hall, every-
one rises to greet him. If the stu-
dents liked the lecture very much,
they show their approval by
pounding their fists on the desks,"
Simon added .
Organized athletics are not
sponsored by the university. Stu-
dents wishing to participate in a
sport band together and form
their own competition.
"There are social fraternities
but they are quite different from
the ones here at the University.
The members meet in the neigh-
borhood bar or any other avail-
able place," Jasinski explained.
"They have no fraternity houses."
The pair had the opportunity
of speaking with a few Hungarian
students who took part in last
year's revolt. "They didn't like to
talk about the actual uprising,"
"But they did stress the hard-
ships of the people under Com-
munist rule. 'There is nothing to
buy and nothing to buy it with'
was the most frequent criticism,"
Many IES students helped at
the various refugee camps in Aus-
tria. "Student groups, organized
by the Austrian student body,
spent several weeks at the camps,"
During the first four years that
the IES has been in existence,
about 400 United States students
from 100 colleges and universities
have participated in the program.
Students pay approimately $1,-'
780 for the entire trip.
All travel, including the boat
trip from and to the United
States ,tuition at the University of
Vienna and room and board for
