'Yankee-Go-Home' Demonstration
By Russians Noisy but Harmless
MOSCOW (IP)-More than 1,000 screaming, banner-waving Rus-
ns staged a rowdy "Yankee go home" demonstration outside the
acted States Embassy yesterday.
Previous demonstrations heavily damaged the West German and
nish embassies, but the United States Embassy emerged unscathed.

The crowd surged against 150 Soviet policemen forming a solid

seemed certain to get prompt

step he recommends. So far the
United Nations has put into Leb-
anon an international observer
force of fewer than 100 men.
The C h a m o u n government
charged yesterday that Lebanese
government forces were shelled
from Syrian territory. United
States officials were initially
skeptical on this point.
They said Chamoun might be
trying to build a basis for asking
United States and British troop
help - something Washington
and London are reluctant to give.
The thinly veiled accusation
against Russia came from State
Department press officer Lincoln
"In the case of Korea," White
said, "they claimed that the
struggle was purely a civil war
and that United Nations action
there constituted aggression."

threatened last night to scuttle the

Washington reacted quickly.

called off a golf game and ar-
ranged to meet urgently with Sec-

Armstrong Accuses Group
n Stormy House Session
WASHINGTON (P') - A House inquiry into alleged influence
peddling got back into high gear yesterday at a gavel-banging ses-
sion in which a former chairman of the Securities and Exchange
Commission accused the investigators of trying to muzzle him.
In turn, members of the House subcommittee on legislative over-
sight charged the witness - J. Sinclair Armstrong, now an assistant
secretary of the Navy - of evasion, filibustering and impertinence.
It was the committee's stormiest session since some meetings

Library To Initiate Changes Monday


Open stacks and check-out system similar to the one in effect at
the Undergraduate Library will be enacted at the University General
Library beginning Monday, Library Director Frederick H. Wagman said
Although initiated to facilitate use of the library, the action comes
as a direct result of cuts in the University budget, according to
The State Legislature cut the University's 1958-59 operating budget
$1,000,000 from the $31,000,000 appropriated last year. The $30,000,000
figure is nearly $8,000,000 short of what the University requested.
May Cut Hours
He said that neither the personnel nor book budgets are adequate
to library needs and in view of this there is a possibility that library
hours will be shortened next fall.
The library does not anticipate any gretat increase in ,the use of
stacks, according to Wagman. "Actually, the stacks have been opened
to all students on Sundays during the regular year," he said. "Open
stacks have come about rather gradually."
Library personnel, who will be located at the main north door, will
inspect all books, brief cases, large handbags and packages as patrons
leave the building. This will be the only means of exit except in
emergencies. Books will be charged at these exits also.
Doors Changed
The west basement door is no longer an entrance to the building
and the west first floor door has been converted to an entrance only.
Access to the stacks can be gained through entrances on the
second floor. The desk service formerly given from the second floor
corridor has been discontinued for all but the physically handicapped.
