Big Three Seeks To Share
Suez Control With Egypt
Dulles To Launch Project
For Users’ Association

night to seek working arrangements with Egypt to share
control of Suez Canal traffic as a step toward peaceful settle
ment of the crisis.

American-British-French project for an 18-nation association
of canal users at the second London Suez conference opening
Dulles will outline the plan, emphasizing its peaceful
purpose, before diplomats of the 18 nations representing
90 to 95 per cent of shipping through the canal. The talks

New Dormitory
Planning May
Go To Board
A new dorm for athletes
complete with swimming pool
and air-conditioning is report
edly under consideration this
week and may be presented to
the Board of Directors here Fri
Plans are underway for several
new dorms and an athletic dorm
may be part of those plans.
Details of how much the new
dorm would cost and how it would
be furnished were not available.
College officials were not willing
to talk about the details of the
planning before the enth-e project
is presented to the Board of Di
From other sources it was learn
ed that the initial plans call for
air-conditioned rooms, a kitchen
and swimming pool.
President David H. Morgan said
that plans have not been presented
to his office but that if such plans
were being made, they would come
to him through the Athletic Council
and then the normal route was to
the Chancellor’s office and then to
the Board.
Flying Waitress
Finally Settles
SAN ANTONIO —■ <A>) — Half-
Wrong-Way Eliasson, otherwise a
comely waitress of 35 whose first
name is Ingar, made a “three-
bounce” landing at International
Airport yesterday to bring an end
to her erratic odyssey over South
Miss Eliasson, object of a wide
search before she was located
nearly 200 miles from her destina
tion yesterday, was relieved to
learn that the owner of the rented
plane she .was flying wasn’t mad
at her.
She wasn’t proud of her landing-
today. The small plane she was
piloting hit the ground and boun
ced about 30 feet in the air.
“Yesterday when I was lost, I
made a three-point landing. Now,
coming home, I made a three-
bounce landing,” she said.
Wacoans Will
Hear Kefauver
TEMPLE, Tex., GP)—The Demo
cratic vice - presidential nominee,
Estes Kefauver, will speak Oct. 1
at Waco, national committeeman
Byron Skelton said yesterday.
Kefauver was invited to come to
Texas by Skelton,' House Speaker
Sam Rayburn, Sen. Lyndon John
son, and Congressman W. R. Bob
Poage at a recent campaign con
ference at Santa Fe. N. M.
The United States has draf
ted emergency plans f o r
rushing from 500,000 barrels of
American oil to Europe each day
in event the Suez crisis slows
down oil deliveries from the Mid
dle East.
A government oil spokesman
said these emergency oil sup
plies would come mainly from
Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and
New Mexico as part of a nearly
completed plant to avert “slow
petroleum starvation” in West
ern Europe.
There is an unmistakable mood
of skepticism and even some oppo
sition to the proposed users group
plan as foreign ministei-s and spe
cial envoys assembled. The same
18 nations had balked last month
the Dulles plan for international
control of the canal, which Egypt’s
President Nasser rejected even as
a basis for negotiations.
As if to underline the doubts,
one of the bosses of the Egyptian
Suez Canal Authority sent forth
what seemed to be a challenge to
the organizers of the association.
Director Mahmoud Yunis, speak
ing in the canal halfway port of Is-
mailia, was asked by reporters
what would happen if the associa
tion tried to send ships through
Suez with their own pilots.
“Let them try,” Yumis retorted.
Yunis declared the crisis set off
by a mass walkout of foreign pilots
last Friday has ended and that the
traffic situation in the waterway
“is returning to normal.”
Only 31 ships cleared through
the canal under the guidance of
Egyptian and Greek pilots today,
against an average of more than
40 daily before the walkout.
Should Egypt refuse to cooper
ate, the Western Big Three is
counting on support from the 15
others for United Nations inter
vention in the dispute—whether in
the Security Council of General
Assembly. The plan would be to
arraign Egypt on a charge of vio
lating the principle of free passage
through the canal which is provid
ed in the 1888 Constantinople con
The U.N. would be asked to in
dorse a resolution condemning
President Nasser’s regime and ask
ing it to restore the international
character of the canal he took over
July 26 from the old Suez Canal

Seating To Be Determined
By Jim Neighbors
Battalion News Editor
Seating for the Villanova game
will be determined by classes ac
cording to a vote taken by the Stu
dent Senate in a special meeting
last night.
The senate accepted by a ma
jority vote the report of the senate
seating committee with two amend
ments. Doug DeCluitt moved to
amend the original motion to state
that the student section be marked
off by classes in a permanent man
ner and Ted Lowe moved that the
committee plan be accepted as a
report. Both amendments were
As the plan now stands, seniors,
both Corps and Civilians, will oc
cupy sections 130, 131, and 132.
These three sections seat 2,319 per
sons. This would leave 900 seats
for senior dates. There are 1,415
seniors holding activity cards.
Juniors will sit in sections 128
All College Dance
Set For Saturday
An All-College Dance will be in
The Grove Saturday Horn 9 until 12
p. m., according to the Office of
Student Activities.
Music will be provided by the
Aggieland Orchestra under the di
rection of Bill Turner. Admission
will be $1.50 stag or drag.
Tickets may be purchased at
j the Office of Student Activities on
j the second floor of the YMCA
between the hours of 8 a. m. and
{ 5 p. m.
and 129. At present there are 1,110
junioi’s holding activity cards. The
two sections hold 1,808 people
which would allow the juniors 700
dates. Sophomores and freshman
are alloted sections 122 through
127, which seats 4,434. There are
1,189 sophomores and 2,030 fresh
men with activity cards. This leaves
room for 1,200 dates.
Total seats allowed to dates is
2,800. However, Pat Dial, business
manager of the Athletic Depart
ment, is reported to expect approvi-
mately 1,500 date tickets to be
sold for the game.
One of the most important
details of the plan is the fact
that immediately following the
kick-off, all boundaries sepa
rating the classes will be re
moved, allowing the students to
fill any vacant seats in a
section closer to mid-field.
Another aspect of the plan is
the method used to divide Civilian
students from Corps students. They
will be separated according to the
number of activity cards bought by
Civilian and Corps students.
The seating cards handed out to wtmmmmat
all Civilian activity card holders be
comes increasingly important.
Without a seating card, a Civilian *
student may not be septed.
Orange cards have been issued to
seniors, blue cai’ds to juniors, gray
cards to sophomores, and white
cards to freshmen.
Depending upon the success of
the seating arrangement for the
Villanova game Saturday, the plan
may be used for the three remain
ing home games.
