established a joint committee last
night to study the implications of

The committee will include two
representatives from each of In-
ter-House Council, Assembly As-

The committee will study the
adequacy of the self-liquidating
program and -possible alternatives.
Method of Financing
The self-liquidating plan is a
method of financing new resi-

At the same sheeting nomina-

officers were announced.
Joe Collins, '58, was re-nomin-

Ron Shorr, '58, administrative
vice-president, was nominated
for e x e c u t i v e vice-president.
Treasurer Maynard Goldman, '59,
received the nomination for ad-
ministrative vice-president. Scott
Chrysler, '59BAd., was nominated
for treasurer.
SGC' also decided to appoint
three students to the University
Housing Committee, two of whom
are to be Council melibers. This
committee, which is composed of
students and administration, was
established by the old Student Af-
fairs Committee in February of
It has not met for over a year.
However, Council members ex-
pressed the belief that a great deal
could be done in this area, and
members should be appointed.
Formerly, any three students
could be appointed.
Must Request Meeting
The student member s are
charged to request a meeting of
,the committee as soon as pos-
sible to discuss its role in the
housing situation and to report
lack to SGC.
The Council also set up a com-
mittee to study ways in which
SGC candidates could most ef-
fectively meet the electorate.
A letter was read to the Council
from President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower commending the group on
its International. Week.'
The President thought that
such a program was an important
aidin his "people-to-people" pro-
gram for international good will.
U.S. Rocket;
Given Tests
WAfHINGTON (P) - Govern-
ment, officials reported yesterday
there was a test last week of one
stage of the rocket designed to put
up the first, experimental, six-inch,
United States satellite.
J. Paul Walsh, deputy director of
Project Vanguard, said the rocket
stage was "static tested," meaning
it was fired while fastened to the
launching pad so that- it could not
take off.

Police Told:
Halt Hawkers
Ann Arbor police officers at the
University football game Saturday
have instructions to arrest anyone'
seen selling tickets while on city-
owned land, Lt. George Simmons
of the Youth Bureau said yester-
The action is the result of "nu-
merous" complaints about the
"hawking" of tickets outside the
stadium on city-owned property.
A city ordinance : forbids the
selling of any merchandise includ-
ing football tickets on city property
on Saturday when Michigan is
playing at home.
The only persons allowed to sell
goods near the stadium are those
who have purchased transient
trader's licenses from the City.

Ding ell 'Says'
Soviets Have
Science Lead
Rep. Johh D. Dingell Jr. (D-
Mich.) charged last night that' the
Eisenhower administration has lost
the scientific lead over Russia, and
thereby severely damaged United
States foreign policy.
Rep, Dingell, who is a member
of the Interstate and Foreign'
Commerce Committee, in the
house, told the University Young
Democrats Club that "more in-
telligent spending as well as a
program of sharing nuclear knowl-
edge with our close allies would be
two big steps in remedying this
situation."' .
Rep. Dingell, who represents the
15th Congressional District in De-
troit said that present difficulties
stem from several factors.
$Ordered Research Cutbacks'.
"To start with," he noted, "when
the Eisenhower administration'
took over in 1953 they ordered
basic research cutbacks, and the
guided missile, program which
started under the previous ad-
ministration bogged down com-
Rep. Dingell said that this was
due not only to a shortage of
funds and scientists,'but to intra-
service rivalries as well.
"These rivalries as to which
branch of the armed service could
perfect the best rockets the fastest
caused and still cause a chaotic
situation in which work is dupli-
cated several times and a tremen-
dous amount of money is wasted,"
he continued.
Youngest Congressman
The 31 year old congressman,
who is the youngest member of the
85th Congress, said that this re-
sulted in the Russians beating us
with their satellite, which in turn
caused a sharp drop in American
prestige abroad.
"This," he emphasized, "coupled
'with bunglings by the Sec. of State
in the Middle East and Far East
has caused many nations to re-
gard our foreign policy as inept,
and our nation as a follower in-
stead of a leader."
Williams Asks
For Education
Gov. G. Menne Williams has
urged support for federal aid to
education under the direction of a
separate secretary of education.
He said yesterday education
should be separated from health
and welfare in the president's cabi-
net "to give education the rank it
must have in the corridors of gov-
ernment and in the minds of the
people if we are meet the Soviet
scientific challenges."

plaints from some schools that
classes beginning on Thursday,
directly after registration,.caused
administrative difficulties.
Study Day Changed
Under the tentative calendar
for next year, the "dead" study
day before exams the first se-
mester will be a Sunday, and for
the second semester a Thursday;
Prof. Paul S. Dwyer of the
mathematics department and
Prof. William Steinhoff of the
English department, committee
members, expressed concern be-
cause whenever a calendar change
is proposed, the extra days come
out of the academic program.
The committee emphasized that
the group wyas just working. out a
stop-gap situation-. for next year
which was in no Way representa-
tive of an educational philosophy.
On Design
The collapse of the Consumers
Power Company building in Jack-
son last fall was "apparently
caused by a fault in the design,"
according tp Prof. Leo. M. Legat-
ski of the engineering college.
Prof. Legatski .and Prof. Glenn
L. Alt, also of the-engineering
college, were hired by the com-
pany immediately after the col-
lapsed to investigate the causes of
the disaster.
In their report the professors
said that "the basic cause of the
collapse is the failure to provide,
in the design, the means for
transmitting moments and shears
around' openings in the concrete
floor and vents to supporting col-
umns." -
Prof. Legatski, a concrete strue-
tures expert, said that the collapse
of the first,- second, third and
fourth floors of the east and south
sections of the structure was "ap-
parently caused by the force ap-
plied by the loads put on them"
This disaster resulted in death
for six people and injury to at least
15 others.
Governor G. Mennen Williams
also appointed a committee to
study the causes of the collapse.
This committee reported that it
"questioned various aspects of the
design, construction and super-
vision of the building project and
the owners participation- therein."
It added that "from a technical
standpoint no single cause can be
pinpointed as the proximate cause
of failure." The committee did not
elaborate further in its report to
the Governor.

"We particularly need increases

President Harlan Hatcher said.

rise from 7,263 to 7,800.
Enrollment Fell Short..
University officials pointed out
that enrollment this fall fell short
of the predicted 24,100 students.'
The final enrollment- figure of
23,000, which still set a record, is
attributed by them to the scarcity
of summer jobs and the increase
in fees.
The tightened financialsitua-
tion for students is reflected in
the increased use of the student
loan fund, Stirton said. An addi-j
tional $100,000 was provided for9
student aid, according to Vice-;
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis.
