He served notice that his pro-

will call for expenditures above

Need Inescapable
The need for this, he said, is in-
escapable as a result of rising
school enrollments, new state hos-
pital staffing requirements, com-
mitments already made for the
support of Wayne State Univer-
sity and similar demands.
Reaction of majority Republi-
cans generally was skeptical, al-
though some said they saw no way
of avoiding a. higher spending
level next fiscal year.
Saying the stat'e must learn to
live within its income, Sen. Elmer
R. Porter added "The Republican
leaders have been concerned with
killing the goose that laid the
golden egg."
Expenditures Will Increase
Rep. Allison Green (R-King-

House, and Rep. Arnell Engstrom
(R-Traverse City), House Ways
and Means Committee chairman,
said increased expenditures ap-
peared inevitable.
Rep. Harry J.Phillips (R-Port
Huron), declining to be pinned
down, said "In my personal life, I
have to cut' the cloth to meet the
situation. I think the government
will have to do the same thing."
As to the need for a 21 million

for such a proposal regardless of

Monday night.
Gov. Williams devoted the first
half of his message to reviewing
the state's present financial plight,
and the bleak outlook for 1958-59.

yesterday the Senate investigation
of the nation's missile-space flight
program is showing "many
strengths-presumably still secret
weapons-as well as weaknesses.
Sen. Johnson, chairman of the
Senate Preparedness subcommittee
conducting the inquiry, told
reporters: "In emphasizing our
shortcomings and deficiencies, it
is well to bear in mind that we
have done some things our folks
don't know about. We have many
strengths that should and will be,
emphasized, too."
He declined to elaborate.
His statement came after his
subcommittee had devoted most.
of the day to hearing testimony
from the top Air Force missile
officer who said, among other

The testimony was given behind

The subcommittee released a
terse three-paragraph statement
on Schriever's testimony at an

I Prof. Kohl's committee had
dealt with two problems in the
present calendar. After hearing
student complaints of having to

dropped from the calendar.,
After faculty complaints about
starting classes the day following
registration, the schedule was
altered for next year so there
would be a day between registra-

"If this were a civil action in a
court, or if it were a criminal case,
the party would be entitled to the
production of these reports,"
Judge E. Barrett Prettyman wrote
for the court.

IFC Election
May Change
The Executive Committee of the
Interfraternity Council last night
recommended a change in the
procedure for nominating candi-
dates for IFC offices. 4
If passed by the Fraternity
President's Assembly, men wishing
to run for office would file peti-
tions with the Executive Commit-
tee. They would be interviewed by
the Committee and recommenda-
tions made by them to the fra-
ternity presidents on the basis of
the candidates' qualifications.
These recommendations would
be studied at district fraternity
presidents' meetings and the fi-
nal candidates will be nominated
from these on the floor on the
night of elections.
Previously, the Executive Com-
mittee has screened the applicants
and then placed a slate of candi-
dates before the Fraternity Presi-
dent's Assembly.
Also at last night's meeting, the
committee rescinded the $25 fines
levied against Alpha Delta Phi,
Psi Upsilon and Zeta Beta Tau'
for failure to put enough time into

The committee explained that
the fraternity houses were fined

Panhellenic Questions Study
Of Affiliate Bias Practices
Panhellenic Board of Delegates yesterday discussed the committee
established by Student Government Council Wednesday to study pro-
gress in removing fraternity and sorority membership restrictions and
determine possible council policy in this area.
Marilyn Houck, '5Ph, Panhel president, explained the decision
and her feeling that such a committee is unnecessary. She said that
progress has been made, the situation is clear now and that problems
could arise from the publicity.
She reminded the delegates of the 1949 National Panhellenic
Conference ruling which says that no questionaire or requests, oral or
written, may be answered by a sorority member until they have been
reviewed by the NPC Committee
on Research and Public Relations
and information has been released KINKEAD-REVEALS I

on Causes Korea Turncoats
The Chinese Communists employed indoctrination and not
"brainwashing" in causing many American prisoners of the Korean
War to turn to the Communistic doctrine, Eugene Kinkead remarked.
Kinkead, an editor and writer for "The New Yorker," said in a
speech yesterday that "brainwashing" is the process of destroying
the thinking processes of a normal individual. The Chinese did not
destroy the mind but conditioned it to their way of thinking.
The indoctrination consisted of two phases, mind conditioning
and the suction stage. "Mind conditioning made the prisoners believe
such ideas as Wall Street starting the war in order to get rich," Kin-
kead noted. This would cause the prisoners to hate America, he said.
The suction stage which followed was divided into repetition,
harassment and humiliation. The repetition process consisted of the
memorization of various Communistic doctrines, he said. After the
dnetrines were memorized, the nrisoners were constantly harassed so
