To the members of the University student, faculty

Bill Passed
To Raise
Mail Rates
yesterday passed and sent to the
Senate a bill to raise postal rates.
Inluded is a boost to four cents
for the three-center letter rate.
The increases would be effec-
tive Oct. 1.
In addition to hiking regular
letter rates the bill would boost
air mail charges from six to seven
cents an ounce and postcards
from two to three cents.
Boosts Air Mail Rates
Action on the measure had been
sought by the Eisenhower admin-
istration to cut the Post Office
Department deficit.
Passage of the bill came on a
26-129 roll-call vote.
Before the final vote the House
. adopted an amendment to speed
up a raise in rates for third-class
mail - mostly advertising ma-
terial y- from one cent to two
and one-half cents per piece. The
amendm e n t, adopted 147-4,
makes this effective Oct. 1 instead
of in two steps which wouldn't be
completed until' July 1, 1959.
Limits 'Subsidy'
It also adopted by a 171-147
standing vote an amendment
which its author, Rep. Rhodes
CD-Pa.) said would limit to $100,-
000 a year the "subsidy" given
any one publication by low mail
The House earlier beat down an
attempt to knock out the 'pro-
posed hike in lette charges.
A 106-58 vote defeated an
amendment by Rep. Holifield (D-
Calif.) that would have knocked
from the, bill all increases on
first-class letters and postcards.
Doria Hears
13 Charges
Against Him
WASHINGTON (A') - Chairman
John McClellan (D-Ark.) of the
Senate R a c k e t s Investigating
Committee ticked off 13 charges
against former labor leader An-
thony Doria yesterday.
The senator called on the Jus-
tice Department for possible crim-
inal proecution
Going to Tax Men
Sen. McClellan told Doria that
a transcript of his two days of
testimony also was going to the
Internal Revenue Service in case
the federal tax collectors "want
to pay you a visit too."
Mainly the charges were that
Doria, for 23 years the secretary-
treasurer of the Allied Industrial
Workers and its predecessor, the
AL sUnitedAuto Workers, had
misused union funds and had
worked hand-in-glove with labor
racketeer Johnny Dio.
Doria disputed the charges,
swearing again he had never spent
union money for his personal
In one of the final episodes of
Doria's sessions with the sena-
tors, he and they listened to a
secret recording of a 1953 tele-
phone conversation between him
and Dio.
Acknowledges Recording
Doria acknowledged the record-
ing was genuine, although the
voice didn't sound like "my usual
sonorous voice."

The conversation showed that
the two men; were discussing the
transfer of some AIW union locals
controlled by Dio, into the Team-
sters Union.

Summer Session finals will have
various effects on different types
of "summer scholars."
To some - older members of
the summer academic commu-
nity finals will provide a cli-
max to a "vacation" used to pur-
sue advanced studies ana gradu-
ate degrees.
Exam Introductions
On the other extreme, a few
new students will receive their in-
troduction on the university level
to the painful experience of try-
ing to convince an instructor that
they have assimilated tne teach-
ings of a semester, by scribbling
furiously for two hours.
In between these two extremes
will be ranged the veteran stu-
dents who have previously at-
tended the University or other
colleges throughout the country.
In general, summer students
can be seen' preparing for finals

An increased number of stu-
dents have been noticed at the

Foreign Aid B iPassed
A fter Sharp -Trimming
WASHINGTON (A)-The Senate last night passed a sharply
trimmed bill authorizing a $3,367,083,000 foreign aid program.
It acted while administration forces worked feverishly to head
off even deeper cuts in appropriations to finance the program.
The measure now goes to the House for final congressional ap-
proval. As an authorization measure, it merely sets ceilings on the
program, but carries no funds. They are to be voted later.
Senate passage of the compromise authorization bill came after
Sen. William Fulbright (D-Ark.) voiced strong opposition on grounds

Warn Youths
'Againt Trip
To Red China
MOSCOW (R)--A nervous group
of American yduths were warned
in scathing language by the Unit-
ed States State Department yes-
terday that their plans for a Comr
munist-sponsored junket to Red
China may put them in trouble
with the law.
Obviously wavering now on
whether to make the three-week
tour, members of the delegation
spent the evening in puzzled con-
ferences. One of them, Shelby
Tucker of Pass Christian, 1Miss.,
withdrew from the trip a few
hours after the State Department
message was received.

now numbering 45, will have to
make up their minds by today at

The official United States view
was expressed in a note specifi-
cally directed at the delegation by,
Under-secretary of State Chris-

It contained one of the State
Department's strongest r e c e n t
statements on the controversial
question of American travel in
Red China.
Herter wrote that all those who
-accepted the Peiping invitation
might be violating the United
States Trading With the Enemy
He linked application of the act
with a never-before expressed,
State Department view that "a
quasi state of war" exists between
the United States and Red China.

The three wer identified as: Lt.
Col. Robert W. Malloy, military
attache; Howard E., Stone, the
embassy's second secretary for,
political affairs; and vice-consul
Francis Getton.
The government move followed
an announcement here that Syrian
military authorities had unveiled
"an American plot to overthrow
Syria's present regime."

reporter: "The American Embassy

Denies, Conspiracy
In Rome, Husseini denied being
involved in any conspiracy and
said he had never heard of Stone.
After the Syrian statement had
been aired, the Soviet ambassador
to Syria, Serguei Nemtchine, met
with Premier .Sabri Assali. He
reportedly affirmed Russia's "pre-

Pakistan A Nation Young in Age Old in Culture

(Editor's Note: The author, a Uni-
versity Press Club Fellow and presi-
dent of the Pakistan Students~ Asso-
elation here, writesthe, following in-
terpretive article on the anniversary
of Pakistan independence.)
Pakistan, which today celebrates
the 10th anniversary of its parti-
tion from India and independence
from Great Britain, is a new coun-
try but one with an ancient cul-
One of the earliest known civili-
zations flourished in Pakistan
4,000 years ago. About 1,500 B. C.

tims of communal riots, social and
economic discrimination, the Mus-
lims felt great misgivings when
the question of independence to
British India arose.
Muhammad Iqbal, a Muslim
poet from Kashmir, conceived the
idea of the partition of British
India into two sovereign states.
Those areas with a Muslim ma-
jority would constitute Pakistan,
the rest India.
The dynamic Muslim leader,
Muhammad Ali Jinnah, supported
by his lieutenant, Liaquat Ali
Khan, set out to turn that poetic
vision into a reality.

Pakistan's population soared to 83
million. Today, every 10th man in
Pakistan is a refugee.
At independence, P a k i s t a n's
economy was totally undeveloped.
It produced 70 per cent of the
world's jute but had no mill.
Agriculture was a n t i q u a t e d,
mechanization unknown, natural
resources untouched, hydro-elec-
tric power unharnassed, communi-
cations hopeless. Literacy was less
than 18 per cent.
Pakistan soon .started on the
painful but necessary task of na-
tional development. First came the
six year plan, and then' the five

in the form of machinery, indus-
trial raw materials, advisory ser-
vices, training facilities abroad.
Most aid came from the United
States, followed by the United
Nations, Ford Foundation, and
s o m e Commonwealth counrties.
This has enabled Pakistan to make
solid progress though a long way
remains to go.
With six countries on her bor-
ders, and its two wings separated
by a thousand miles, isolationism
was impossible for Pakistan.
