$ BILLION BILL APPROVED
WASHINGTON The House Ways and Means Commit
tee today approved President Kennedy's $1 billion emergency
proposal to extend unemployment compensation benefits for
jobless workers.
After three days of closed hearings, the committee ap
proved this first part of Kennedy's program to help the un
employed. The bill would provide almost a billion dollars in
extra relief to the 3,125,000 persons whose benefits either
have run out or will expire during the next year or so.
WANTED: 7.0C0 SOLDIERS
UNITED NATIONS, N. Y. Secretary General Dag Ham
marskjold sought 7,000 soldiers today to beef up the United
Nations force in the Congo to 20,000 men.
There was no immediate indication where he would find
them.
Malaya has said it would contribute 800 troops, India is
considering giving some manpower and Japan is talking about
sending "observers."
GOP'S TO PUSH CIVIL RIGHTS
WASHINGTON Republican congressional leaders an
nounced Thursday they will push their own civil rights bill
since President Kennedy failed to propose one in his 16-point
priority legislative program.
. Senate GOP Leader Everett M. Dirksen, 111., said he
would offer the GOP measure in a couple of weeks because
"there is no clear and immediate indication the administra
tion is going to introduce something."
NATURAL RESOURCES PLAN POSED
WASHINGTON President Kennedy sent Congress today
a vast natural resources program to protect and develop the
nation's lifeblood supplies of water, land, forests and minerals.
Kennedy put into a special message proposals ranging

water for drinking and industrial use.
He warned, that unless wise broad-scale action is taken
"we will be in trouble within a short time."

Sem inars
Tour For
Many students will be visit
ing Europe this summer pri
marily for entertainment pur
poses. However, there is one
group on the UNC campus
whose purpose, is different.
Four years ago University of
North Carolina students, under
the auspices of the YMCA-
YWCA, organized Seminars
Abroad for the purpose of help
ing serious minded students add
educational value to their fun
in Europe.
Unlike the professional tours
for sightseeing tourists, Semi
nars Abroad was designed for
the student who was willing to
take part in the planning and
study that it required.
The first seminar of 30 Caro
lina students in the summer of
1958 was successful enough so
that it has been repeated and
broadened every summer since.
Seminars Abroad consists of
two parts: 1) a two-month
travel program in Europe dur
ing the summer, and 2) a series
of seminars and meetings dur
ing the second semester of the
school year in preparation of
the summer.
A three-day trip to Washing
ton in March to meet with Fed
eral Government and State De
partment officials is part of the
preparation for the summer
tour.
The object of Seminars
Abroad is to enable American
students to meet people of
other countries in order to not

The cost of Seminars Abroad
is arj important .feature of the
tour. Actual cost, which in
cludes travel, meals, lodging,
guides, and seminar programs
is $1395.00.
The time factor is also an im
portant aspect, of Seminars
Abroad. The tour lasts for 64
days, June 8 to August 10.
By traveling on planes and
trains the actual travel time is
reduced to about 80 hours or
eight days. That leaves 56 days
of program time in Europe.
