Internes Work at UN Headquarters

Ffty-f our university students
from 35 countries have begun work
at the United Nations under the
UN summer Interne Program
During the seven weeks which the
students will spend at the UN
headquarters, they will study the
organization from temporary posts
within the Secretariat.
This program was instituted in
1947 fgollowing a General Assem-
bly resolution and enables students
from different countries to work
In the Secretariat and attend lec-
tures given by senior UN person-
The primary function of this
program is to train the internes in
UN activities and to make the
organization better known abroad.
Following their UN stay many of
the internes take up careers inthe
diplomatic, consular and foreign
services of their countries. Others
will go into journalism, law, public
relations and similar fields.
Selection Board
A Selection Board consisting of
senior UN officials choose the in-
ternes from applicants who have
first been screened by their respec-
tive UN missions. Four categories
of internes are selected: interna-.
tional, or those who are selected
through their missions and are
paid by the UN; scholarship inter-
nes, recommended by the universi-
ties and paid by them: auditeurs
libre, who audit the program and
NGO internes who -are nominated
by and represent non-government-
al organizations.
In addition to the regular sum-
mer interne program, the UN con-
ducts a program in the spring for
civil servants of junior and inter-
mediate standing and a one-year
program, started last year, for

New Attempt
To Bar 'Bad
Drivers' Made
LANSING ()-A second attempt
will be made to get the legislature
to plug a gap in the state's pro-
gram for barring "bad drivers"
from Michigan highways.
This was disclosed yesterdav at
a state traffic safety commission
meeting by Secretary of State
James M. Hare, Commission
Enforcement was weakened
when the InghamuCounty Circuit
Court ruled in June that Hare
was exceeding his powers by deny-
ing license renewals to motorists
with "bad driving" records.
Before the decision by circuit
Judge Marvin Salmon, the state
driver improvement division under
Hare had been refusing new licen-
ses on this ground at the rate
of about 15,000 a year.
Hare said the administrative
burden of handling these cases
on an individual hearing basis was
beyond the capabilities of his
office staff. This meant, he said,
that persons with poor driving
records were entitled to automatic
renewal of licenses.
At Hare's request, Senator John
B. Swainson (D-Detroit) filed a
bill last month in the special legis-
lative session to remedy the en-
forcement defect.
Worded broadly it provided for
denial of a new license by the:
secretary of state when he had:
cause to believe granting one
would be "inimical to the public
safety or welfare."
Senator Cora Brown (D-Detroit)
and several other solons registered
opposition, and the bill was p-,
geonholed in committee.
Hare told the commission yes-.
terday he will try a new approach
when the legislature resturns
It will ask denial power when
the secretary has good cause
"based upon an applicant's traffic
and accident violation record
showing six or more moving viola-
tion convictions or accidents with-
in the previous 24 months."
A second ground for denial of a
license renewal, under the pro-
posed language, would be one or
more reckless or negligent driving
offenses within 24 months when
the offense resulted in death or
injury to a person or in serious
property damage.

now in the Secretariat.
Many of the internes live at the
International House and partici-

most of them, this is their first

and picture-taking take up much
of their spare time. Four or five

By The Associated Press
The Ohio Valley, raked by a
series of heavy weekend rain-
storms, began a slow return to
normalcy yesterday but kept a
wary eye on predicted flood state
waters of the Monongahela River.
At least seven deaths were
blamed on the weather. In addi-
tion, a family of three was missing
and feared drowned in an auto
that toppled into a western Penn-
sylvania creek. Unofficial damage
estimated ranged upward of three
million dollars.
The heavy rains, which began
Sunday in the Ohio Valley especi-
ally in West Virginia, western
Pennsylvania, western Maryland,
northeastern Ohio and in the De-
troit area, deposited five and six
inches in some places and set off
Pittsburgh and the surrounding
area saw subsiding flood wate-s
that caused tremendous damage
in small communities along the
whipped up Monongahela and
Youghiogheny rivers. Officials said
that in western Pennsylvania it
would take more than a week to
remove debris and repair utility
Three deaths were reported in
Pennsylvania. Near the Monon-
gahela River city of Monessan 25
mies south of Pittsburgh, search-
ers hunted for Mr. and Mrs. James
Pascarella Jr. and their 3-month-
old son, James II.
Other communities saw dimin-
ishing flood waters. Carnegie, a
suburb of Pittsburgh, was soaked
by the storm as Chartiers Creek
rose to its highest level in a half
century. The Red Cross set up
emergency shelter there for 300
Canonsburg, 25 miles from Pitts-
burgh, also bore the brunt of the
storm with 50 families evacuated.

Bond Issue
LANSING, (P)-The State Ad-
ministrative Board yesterday ten-
tativelyapproved a .$25,000,000
bond issue to finance 218 miles of
four-lane superhighways.
Total cost of the projects is
$146,000,000. The Federal Goven-
ment will foot most of the bill
under the new Federal Highway
George M. Foster, Chief Deputy
Highway Commissioner, said con-
struction will start this fall on
some of the projects but that he
could not name them.
Foster said that under normal
procedure bonds could be placed
on the market in the latter part
of this month
Gov. G. Mennen Williams used,
the occasion to complain that the
Highway Department had dragged
its feet in getting the projects
under way.
The law authorizing the pro-
jects was passed in 1955, but the
legislature amended it last spring1
to clear up objections of bonding
"I signed that law about theI
middle of June and hoped we1
could get started at least by July
1. This is at best one month late,",
Gov. Williams said.

SU' Research
Center Will
Conduct Poll
What do Americans think abou
government policy?
How do group memberships af
fect their voting behavior?
The University' Survey Re
search Center wil seek well define
answers to these squestions from
a carefully selected, nationwid
sample of more than 2,000 citizen
this fall. Thirteen major metro
politan areas and 56 countie
selected at random will be include
in the Center's second presidentia
election study.
In their first full-fledged cam
paign study four years ago, th
Center's researchers found three
general factors were important i
the voter's decision: his feeling o
identification with either of the
major political parties, his reaction
to issues involving governmen
policy, and his personal impression
of the candidates.
For individuals, the relative im
portance of each of these factors
varied widely For the nation a
a whole, however, party loyalty
seemed to have greater importanc
than the other two factors,
The 1956 study will continue t
assess the importance of party
identification, issues and candi
dates in the election, but will dig
more deeply into the importance
of government policy - domestic
and foreign -- and related issue
to behavior in the voting booth
The survey will also include pre-
liminary questions designed to see
how attitudes toward these issues
may be related to an individual's
broader feelings about the world
generally-what he thinks about
the prospects for war or peace, for
Membership in labor unions,
racial, religious and ethnic groups,
and other voluntary associations
will also be studied in more detail
than was done in 1952.
Interviewing of the nationwide
sample will start in mid-Septem-
ber, an drun through October.
Participants in each area will be
selected at random by the Center
well in advance of the inter-
views. Approximately 150 trained
field workers will conduct the in-
terviews, which are expected to
run about an hour apiece.

NEW YORK (A -Roy T. Hurle,,
president of Curtiss-Wright Corp.,
announced yesterday the formal
signing of contracts putting into
effect his firm's agreement with'
Studebaker-Packard Corp. .
The agreement, under whichj
Curtiss-Wright will take over three
plants of the auto firm and pro-
vide guidance through a three-
year advisory management con-
tract, were announced Saturday.
After the official signing of the
contracts here a Curtiss-Wrightl
spokesman said there was nothing
to add to details already disclosed
in the earlier announcement.
In giving terms of the long-
awaited deal between Curtis-
Wright and Studebaker-Packard,
Hurley said it was planned to keep
the auto firm an "important parti-
pant" in the automobile in-
The agreement, Hurley has said,
provides for Curtis-Wright to pay
35 million dollars for long-term
leases on two of the auto firm's
plants and for outright purchase
of a third plans plus certain de-
fense assets.
The leased plants are Stude-
baker-Packard's Utica plant near
Detroit and the Chippewa plant at
South Bend, Ind. Purchased was

the auto firm's Aerophysics De-
velopment Corp. of Santa Barbara.
Hurley said Curtiss-Wright will
be able to place approximately 100
million dollars of defense sorders
per year in the leased plants,
thereby providing increased em-
ployment in the Detroit and South
Bend areas. All three plants ob-
tained from the auto company will
be operated as wholly-owned sub-
sidiaries, he said.
