Subject to Approval

Attempts to bring a Communist
to speak on campus next week
were dropped during preliminary
stages of. arrangement because of
"practical Treasons," planners of
International Week said yester-
Barbara Black, '59, and Robert
Arnove, '59, co-chairmen of In-
ernational Co-ordinating Com-
mittee revealed the Polish Perma-
nent Mission to the United Na-
tions had offered to send a speak-
er for the Nov. 4 opening of the
World's Fair. But after informal
talks with a member of the Uni-
versity's Lecture Committee, and
University Vice President William
Stirton, "we decided that rather
than -take the time and trouble, to
get approval, we would drop it,"
Miss Black said,
Respond to Letter
Arnove said the Polish Mission
had responded to a letter sent to
al lthe United Nations delegations
requesting speakers' and'display
material and that on Friday Oct.
18, he phoned Jacek Machowski,
First Secretary Af the Mission to
inquire about expenses and other
William West, a counselor at
International Center and advisor
to the International Students As-
sociation then phoned Prof. Karl
Brandt of the Lecture Committee.
As a result of the conversations,
Arnove said he then sent a tele-
gram to Machowski, a former lec-
turer at the Polish Main School of
Foreign Service, at Warsaw tell-
mg him "due to circumstances,"
they couldn't arrange for another
Union Requests Change
Carl Sandburg had already been
contracted for Monday night but
the Union, sponsors of the speech,
had requested ICC to try to re-
schedule a speaker for Tuesday.
Arnove said Machowski was con-
tacted during the uncertainty of
whether Sandburg would be avail-
able for Tuesday.
West said Prof. Brandt told him
that although attempts had been
made in the past to arrange for
such questionable speakers he felt
the Lecture Committee would
grant approval but it would need
the approval of President Harlan
Htcher or Vice-President Stirton.
"I called to get some off the
cuff advice and Vice-President
S t i r t o n said he wished we
wouldn't schedule the Polish of-
ficial. There seemed to be no point
in making arrangements and
then being turned down by the
Lecture Conmittee."
Prof. Brandt . could not be
reached for comment. Vice-Presi-
dent Stirton said he couldn't re-
call too many of the details of
the phone conversation with West
"but my personal judgment was
that Sandburg would be better."
Both Arnove and Miss Black
emphasized that lack of time
made it seem more practical to
recontact Sandburg than try to
gain ILecture Committee approval
of a possibly unacceptable speak-
er. "If the time element was in
our favor, we may have gone
through with it," Miss Black

SGC set up the forum commit-
tee last year to plan a speakers
program to stimulate discussion
in controversial areas of religion,

SGC also decided last night to
publish a paid column in The
Daily on a trial basis. The public
relations committee will evaluate
its effectiveness by a special stu-
dy, which will also'involve SGC
Review, the Council's newsletter
to students.
The Council felt The Daily did
not provide adequate coverage of
all the Council's activities. This
was especially true, many mem-
bers felt, for committee areas.
Six Open Positions
There are now six Council po-
sitions open for the eleven can-

from the Council because of "ad-

She was married last night to
Dick Hartig, '58E.'
Leonard Wilcox, 60L, reported
to the Council on the University
Calendar Committee, of which he
is a representative.
He outlined the committee's ac-

pilation of necessary information
and the recommendation that the

dropped from the school schedule

The Atomic Energy Commission
issued a statement yesterday
which tells of financing research
to determine the feasibility of a
new kind of atom smasher which
conceivably could shoot nuclear
particles at energies up to a tril-
lion volts.
The statement was made in re-
ply to a complaint Tuesday by the
newly elected president of the
Midwestern Universities Research-
Association, Prof. H. R. Crane of
the University physics depart-
ment. Prof. Crane said this coun-
try was sitting on plans for a par-
icle accelerator which could put
this country ahead of Russia in
high energy physics research.
He said MURA scientists have
not been able to get support for
the machine's construction and
added it would not surprise him
if the Russianswere working on
the new device "right now." Rus-
sia now has the world's most pow-
erful atom smasher.

Split Shown


First meeting of the Union Sen-
ate will be held at 7:30 p.m. today
in the Union Ballroom.
Representation to the Senate
has been set at 63, 42 fraternity
"Senators" and 21 residence hall
representatives. E a c h residence
hall representative will have two
votes which will balance the affili-
ate-independent representation.,
According to Fred Wilten, Union.
Administrative Vice President,
'58E, men living in cooperative
housing and apartments will be
given representation later, after
problems connected with the first
meeting have been ironed out.
The agenda for tonight's meet-
ing will include discussion of
Homecoming, early publication of
exam schedules, the improving of
spirit at football games and com-
plaints about the Union.
Familiar Topics Needed,
Wilten said that these topics
were chosen for the first meeting
instead of more controversial ones
because "the Union felt that topics
wereneeded that everyone was
familiar with and could !discuss.
For example, the lecture commit-
tee is a little more removed from
everyday student interest."
He said he hoped. the planning
committee. for the Senate would
include more controversial issues
for succeeding Senate meetings.
After a short opening speech to-
night by Don Young, '58, Union
president, Wilten will explain the.
details of Senate operation to
the representatives.
Form Discussion Groups
After each topic is introduced,
and preliminary information is
given, the body will break down
into groups of nine members each
for approximately 20 minutes of
discussion. Then, according to Wil-
ten, the smaller groups will come
back into the larger group. Each
group's discussion leader will re-
port the feelings of his group. Wil-
ten said if the groups are in gen-
eral agreement, a motion may be
made from the floor. This motion,
which will formally express Sen-
ate intent, will then be voted on.
I Place on Agenda
Both Student Government
Council and the Union Board of
Directors have agreed to place on
their agendas topics which the
Senate specifically refers to them.
Wilten gave the purposes of the
Senate as "broadening the base of
student opinion and formalizing
procedures for discussing student
He added the Union hoped the
Senate will help to alleviate stu-
dent apathy, although it was not
specifically formed to do so. Wil-
ten said he has received reports
that the Senate has already helped
to stimulate discussion of campus
issues in several housing units.

City To Extend
All-Night Ban,
On Parking
The city's all-night parking reg-
ulations will probably be extended
to the area south and east of the.
University before the end of the
year, City Administrator Guy C.
Larcom, Jr., said yesterday.
At the sane time, parking be-
tween 2 and 5 a.m. in the main
campus area will be completely
eliminated, Larcom said.
The proposals will be' brought
before City Council within the
next two months.
The area affected by these pro-
posed changes would be bounded
by Geddes Street, the main cam-
pus, Division Street, and the south
and east city limiVs. Parking with-
in this section wduld be limited to
use of the odd - numbered and
even-numbered sides of streets on'
alternate nights, between 2 and
5 a.m.
Regulations Now in Effect
These regulations are now in
effect around the main campus,
in the area bounded by Catherine,
Observatory, Hill and Division
streets, where all-night parking
Would be prohibited on both sides
nightly, under the new plans.
This plan is the second stage in
a three-stage campaign to improve
traffic conditions in the city, ac-
cording to Police Lt. H. G. Schlupe
of the Traffic Bureau. In the final
stage, night parking throughout
the city would be restricted to the
alternate-night basis.
These changes were recommend-,
ed by a Detroit traffic engineering
firm after a study of the campus
area last fall.
