Syra Reports Turk Troops
1S yr kr 100S
Concentrated Along Border
DAMASCUS, Syria WA) - Syria put on a new show of war jitters
yesterday after the army reported unusually large Turkish troop
movements at night along the northern frontier.
High excitement was generated also by mass street demonstra-
tions and new editorial attacks against Hussein of Jordan, King of
the brother A'rab state to the south.
Speakers and editorials accused him of betraying Arab nation-
alism and threatened him with liquidation.
Developments which otherwise could presage a new crest of the
Middle East crisis were somewhat balanced, however, by uncon-
firmed reports from Arab sources "
at the United Nations in Newe
York that Syria and the United
States had agreed on steps to Im- In ie
prove their relations.
The agreement was reported to
include a new exchange of am-
bassadors to fill vacancies created;
by a near rupture last *August
when Damascus army chiefs ac-
cused the United States of plot-
ting overthrow of the Syrian gov-
The agreement was said to have
been reached in a meetings last
week between Syrian Foreign
Minister Salah Bitar and United
States Ambassador Henry Cabot
Lodge and Asst. Secretary of State

Syrian Troops Alerted
As a result of the army reports
of Turkish military movements,
all Syrian troop units in the north
were put on alert, and the Syrian
Cabinet held a two-hour meeting
in the middle of the night.
For several weeks Syrians -have
been waging a word campaign
against Turkey, charging her with
concentrating troops along the
border and violating her border
and air space.

as voiced during the campaign.)
By RICHARD TAUB
Sessions of Student Government
Council candidates discussing is-
sues were brought to a close with
a candidates forum yesterday.
Approximately 25 students came
to hear the candidates.
Nine of the 11 candidates dis-
cussed apathy and complacency,
and offered ways of remedying
the situation, all of which em-
phasized the communications

There is a counsellingstudy
committee at work now, which was
set up at the request of SGC.
Joe Collins, '60, SGC President,
pointed to the new Forum pro-
gram as a worthwhile accomplish-
ment of the Council. He also noted
that students get interested when
a Council -decision affects them.
He poainted to the Sigma Kappa
decision and the deferred rushing
decision as examples of sudden
ruling pertains only to those
groups recognized after 1949.
Miss Rainwater told students
that she thought it would be un-
fair to set up any specific require-
ments for Sigma Kappa to prove
it is not in violation of the regula-
She said that Sigma Kappa
should decide what policy to re-
vise and then, at that time, the
Council could consider it.
Mort Wise, '59, said that Sigma
Kappa should reinstate its expelled
chapter, with the Negro girl still
a member. In 1956 Sigma Kappa
expelled Tufts College chapter
after it had pledged a Negro.
If the Tufts chapter is not re-
instated, or the suspension is not

Dan Belin, '59, told Van Tyne
House he thought that the charter
of national Sigma Kappa should
be revoked, if it cannot prove that
it did not violate discriminatory
policy at the University.
Two ways in which it might
prove it no longer violates the
regulation would be to: rein~tate
one of the barred chapters while
it still had a Negro member; per-
mit another local to pledge a
Negro without being expelled.
He said, however, that no spe-
cific thing could be required of
the sorority, because it might have
