SC president State to Offer intern Training To Graduates Graduate sludrnts in the fioIds of education. law, journalism and government may bp eligible for a special state internship program, providing training in 1 hp irgislative process and in thp genpral fields of state gov-ernment and public policy. A<spmblyman Richard T. Hanna and Dr. Jay Douhledav will inlervipw students beginning Monday and give them thp information npeded to apply for ihesp internships with the Cali- j fornia legislature. Inaugurated in 1957, the in-lernship program provides qualified graduate students with training in statp government. t Assembly Task« Interns arp appointed to serve with committees and officers of the Assembly, performing tasks such as resparch and report writing, speech writing, preparing press releases, corresponding with constituents and the preparing of commit tep hearings. Intern« will also attpnd eommit-tpp hearings and meetings in various parts of the statp. As many as 15 interns may be appointed in any one year. They arp pach paid $400 ppr month. Dr. Tot Ion J. Anderson, chairman of SC's political scipnce departmpnt, said that interns must normally have completed onp vpar of graduate study in thp relatpd fields, and should be candidatp* for. or recent recipients of graduate degrees. Relevant Experience R p 1 p \ i n t w ork experience, such as newspaper work or government serv ice. may he substituted for graduate course work In some cases, hp addpd. Thp program is sponsored by , the Statp Assembly. SC. thp Ciaremont Graduate School, Stanford University and the l'ni\eisities of California at Berkeley and l»s Angples. It is jointly financed by the Assembly, ttip sponsoring univer-sities and ihp Ford Foundation. Four Shulcnts Sincp Hip internships wrere established. four SC students — j r.mh Ross. 1957-58: Jack Smart, 1958.59; Skip Byrne. 1958-59; and Jim Bylin. 1959-60 have re-cpived these awards. Bylin, however, declined the award to accept a graduate IpI-lnwslnp at Columbia University. Dr. Anderson said that students wishing to talk with the representative« of the program Monday should makp appointments with him today in thp political science office. 420 FI I. Priest Pla ns Shinon Talk the Koy;an Temple in Los Angeles, will tv* thp featured speaker at th" Graduate Student Discussion Forum today at noon at the Episcopal Ccnlrr. Dr. Terak.nv.i, an SC graduate student in compelalive religion, -P 'ke to tlic* g/oup last week on j the bplip|s and practices of the Shinon sect of Buddhism. | and other members of the administration along with voting and non-voting members of thp ASSC Senate saw thp beginning of a tradition which could well oppn thp doors to a greater student understanding of university policies and enable students to more fully contribute to its academic environment. Karahian Speaks ASSC President Wallv Kara-bian remarked that th« meeting was the "finest thing any SC administration has donp towards 1hp students in recent vears—I hope it will 1>p carried on." This was thp concensus among both students and administrators. Neither grftup pulled punches at the meeting, however. One of thp first question? to hp asked Dr. Topprg by AMS President Miehacl Loshin, was w hether ihe administration hoped to “slowly eliminate fraternities and sorori-tip« at SC by inducing studpnts to live in dormitories instead of on 28th st.” Costs Rise “Any such elimination,” the president replipd. “will bp donp by thp fraternities and sororities themsplves.” Up citpri thp currpnt situation at SC wherp some of thp Greek living group« havp many pmptv beds in thpir housps thus increasing the cost of living in thpsp groups for those who are members. “This is partially caused by thp fratprnitips themselves because more and more students ate being dissuaded from pledging by thp irresponsible actions of fiaternities in thp past. Attitud* Change “This is not ppculiar to SC, but is going on in universities across thp nation.” hp pointpd out. “The solution for ihe fraler-nitv system across the country is to make it opprate the way it should.” Hp noted, hovvevpr, that in re-eent months SCs fratpmity sys-tpm has morp and more under-gonp a changp in attitudp which could well makp it a stronger force in thp academic community and more attractive to entering students. •‘There is a great willingness among students on the row today to resolve thpir own difficult ips and to accept more responsibility,” he said. Building Program "As long as this progress keeps up, thp fratprnitips will stay alive. Any killing of the fraternity syslem. howpver, will be by the system itself. In answer to a question by thp president of thp School of Architecture’s student body con-cprning what hp calls thp laek of apsthptic value in SCs building program. Dr. Topping replied lhat "functionalism, central location and economy" are also important, in SCs expansion. An Island In lptters to the Daily Trojan some members of thp School of Architecture’s council had caJled SC "an ugly place” and asked that architecture students bp consulted in further university development. Following ihp conference, Dr. Topping expressed the hope that SCs campus would one day become "an island within the community — more beautiful and mote functional than it is today.” He cited the problem of SCs being almost a "thruway” to ihe Col isPum-Ex posit ion Park area, and declared that when all thp streets in the immediate arpa of SC at« closed off this problem may be greatly alleviated. More r.ifts In relation to SCs fund-raising. Fail Bolton, vice president for development, told the students lhat each year support tor the university is growing from the community at large. “More and more, alumni are making contributions throush support groups." he said. "In addition we havp new programs for corporate donations and grants from businesses." At the »lose of the meeting. Dr. Topping promised another student - administration conference n°\t vear with a hoped for schedule of "at least two a >ear" in the future. AEC Adviser Calls For End of Terror Disarmament Proposal Finale at 36th Institute Presentation of a two-part disarmament proposal for "Dismanteling the Era nf Terror” highlighted the closing session of the 36th Institute of World Affairs Wednesday. The proposal was offered by Thomas E. Murray, consultant to the Joint Congressional Committee on. atomic | energy. Choral Music Wili Highlight Sunday Rites ANOTHER DEATH — Speed continues to be the factor most often reported in fatal accidents, and the frequency of this factor has increased slightly through the years. The tragic scene above shows the destruction of impact at high speeds. Speed Law Violators Pose Dangerous Safety Threat ... 50 ... 60 ... 70-... 80 ... as the speed indicator on your dash closes in on the figure 90 you experience a thrill as 1he roadway rips past under your racing vehicle. Confidently you apply even more pressure to thp accelerator and the auto leaps j forward. Suddenly a rifle-shot noise shakes you back to rpality . . . but you can’t respond last enough as the jolt of the blown out tire pitches your car into a culvert bordering the roadway. In a spc-ond all is quiet ... a wheel spins lazily to a halt . . . and Death laughs in the front seat. Close to Reality This hypothetical case history of a traffic accident is unfortunately too close to reality as about 30 per cent of the drivers | involved’ in fatal accidents last year were violating a speed law. Speed continues to lie the factor most often reported in fatal accidents, and the frequency of this factor has increased slightly through the years. The opposite trends in “exceeding stated limit” and "exceed-' ing safe speed” undoubtedly ate due to the increasing amount of speed zoning and to changes in Europe Offers Summer Jobs Morp than 3000 temporary sumrrtPr .jobs vvUl be available to American university students in Europe next year, says t h e American Student Information Service. The jobs, available in Germany, France, England, Belgium. Holland, Luxembourg. Scandinavia, Austria and Spain, will pay the standard wage of the country in which they are located. laws that have established specific limits in more places. City accident summaries showed that in 1958 only 21 per ccnt of the drivers in fatal accidents violated an established speed law. Rural summaries indicate that a higher percentage of drivers violate speed law's while driv ing outside of the city. The National Safety Council explained that since accident summaries are based partly on reports of drivers, who often believe low7 speeds are safe regardless of conditions, differences in urban and rural per cents should be interpreted cautiously. An NSC report said that two drivers participated in a road test on a 295-mile stretch of highway in Kansas and proved lhat.high speeds save neither time nor mon<%. Little Time Difference One driver reached a top speed of 50 m.ph., average 43 m.p.h., passed 62 cars and had a driving time of 6 hours and 50 minutes. The test showed that the first driver saved only 25 minutes in 300 miles, passed twice as many cars with each passing a potential accident, used 11 per cent more gasoline and 50 per cent more oil. The National Safety Council asks the question: Was it worth it? * Six Drink Whiskey In Interest of Safety A half dozen professional men polished off 10 slugs of whiskey in an hour-and-a-half yesterday in the interests of highway safe- I The experiment look place at the home of David N. Kaye, manager of the Santa Clara I County Safety Council as a stunt 1 to discourage holiday tippling. The six men included a Stanford University professor, two insurance men, a promotion man. a food store operator and a | newspaper reporter. Following the drinking the "sacrificial six" were diven to a downtown nightclub for tesls , which showed that their drinking had slowed reaction time as much as 40 per cent and reduced depth perception from 50 to 83 per cent. One test called for the subject to shuffle a deck of cards seven ; limes, separate all the suits and then put the suits in order. The six averaged about 90 seconds each before drinking, up to 142 seconds during the public tests. "If we don’t realize our abilities have become impaired,” said Kaye, were in trouble at the wheel.*' Robert McCarthy, state director of motor vehicles, said j the results convinced him "the state is on the right track with its policy on drunk drivers.” The recent increase in the California highway traffic toll | has led to a crackdown on drunk drivers. Driver’s licenses of persons convicted of drunk driving are automatically suspended. Lowell Bradford. Santa Clara County criminologist, said one or two drinks beforp dinner ups Ihe blood alcohol content to .05, from .06 to .10 a drinker’s be-havior changes: from .22 to .24 signs of drunkenness appear. A .40 measure indicates extreme drunkenness. Blue Key Honorary Taps 30 New Men Twenty-two SC men and eight honorary appointees have been selected for membership in BIup Key, national fraternity. It was annonucpd yesterday by Bob Thick, president of the SC chapter. Selection of new men is based on scholarship, leadership, character and significant service to the university, Chick said.

Reapportion Talks Slated At Palisades The Southern California - Arizona Citizenship Clearing House, ; headed by SCs Dr. Totton J. Anderson, chairman of the political science department, will sponsor a reapportionment program today and tomorrow at Pacific Palisades. Students and professors from 14 Southland colleges and uni- I versifies will attend the confer- j ence to study the proposed state- j ground reapportionment. Affiliated with a national organization, the Citizenship Clearing House interests and stimulates college students toward active participation in politics. It seeks to promote partisanship participation, but maintains neutrality as to the parties. Dr. Henry Janssen of San Diego College will direct the conference which will open with a dinner at 6:15 p.m. Five political scientists who will discuss reapportionment are t Mrs. Melvin Crain, San Diego | State College; Gordon Baker, 1 University of California At Santa Barbara; John Groom, Uni-j versify of Redlands; Dvvaine '■ Marvick. UCLA; and LeRoy Hardy, Long Beach State Col-! lege. ! Politicians speaking at 9 a.m. Saturday will hp Ronald R. Cameron, Democratic incumbent ! from the 50th Assembly District; I Charles J. Corad, Republican incumbent from the 57th Assem-j bly District and a member of ¡the Assembly Committee on elections; Charles Franklin, j member of Republican Associ-I ates. and Bernie Selbe»-, member of the California Democratic Council. Murray urged in the proposal that “an international agency be established and located on neutral territory and be empowered to supervise the systematic destruction of the megaton weapons in the American and Soviet stockpiles.” He added that the destruction should he done on a matching basis—weapon for equal weapon. Reasons Unusual It'was pointed out by Murray, and by others during the question period which followed the talks, that these are not new suggestions. But the reasons he-hind the proposals are a little unusual, or at least contrary to what has been presented in previous Institute discussions. He distinguished between force and violence by defining viotpnee as unrestricted use of military power to the extent that it becomes useless for political purposes. while force is the use of power in a limited manner to , obtain legitimatp political aims. “Given the nature of man. the j art of international politics cannot dispense with the use, or at least the threat, of force, any more than human society can dispense with law, which< re- 1 quires force to back it up,” Murray explained. Restricted Basis He proposed the continuation of nuclear tests, on a restricted basis, “to give us new typps of much needed limited weapons, defensive and offensive, w'hich could be used in discriminating fashion.” Murray recognized the practical impossibility of enforcing effectively a nuclear test ban by pointing out that "an adequate and effective system would consist of thousands of stations, equipped with devices not yet invented. Many hundreds of these would have to be on Soviet and Red Chinese territory: j this is a political impossibility." Practical Plan Another reason for adopting the proposal is that it is practical since it involves only the ' UnitPd Statps and the Soviet Union in negotiations to the agreement. Someone later brought up the question of Great Britain as a nuclear power which must be dealt with, as must any other country possessing nuclear weapons in the future, but Murray sidestepped this problem by saying that his program had not yet been fully worked out. The problem of arms is one which has faced this country in the past and it will continue to do so as long as we remain unguided by a clearly defined na- ! tional purpose in this area, the consultant explained. !0n Gather About 200 educators and leaders in the field of international relations gathered to hear Dr. Joseph Kaplan, United States Chairman of the International Geophysical Year, and Murray outline "New' directions in the struggle for peace"—the theme of the day. Not originally scheduled to deliver a major evening address. Dr. Kaplan stepped in at the last minute to fill in for Erich Straetling, first secretary of the German Embassy to the United States, who was unable to attend.
