King Asks Viet Withdrawal,
Revision of Domestic Policy

Special To The Daily
TOLEDO-A predominantly Ne-
gro audience of 3000 last night
gave Martin Luther King, Jr., a
standing ovation when he said
"we must get out of Vietnam and
p come home to build a new Amer-
"President Kennedy had the in-
tegrity to say 'I made a mistake'
after the Bay of Pigs," King
said. "It's time again for the
present administration to stand up

and say 'We made a mistake in
King spoke at a local high
school here during a brief stop-
over on his way from San Fran-
cisco to Cleveland where we will
work with local groups to elect
Carl Stokes as Cleveland's first
Negro mayor.
The Nobel Prize winner said
that "propably next month or in
November" he will go back to Bir-
mingham, Ala., to serve a jail

sentence for breaking a demon-
stration injunction two years ago.
The U.S. Supreme Court has al-
ready upheld the conviction and
King has filed for a re-hearing
with the high court, but expects
it will be overruled.
"I really need the jail sentence,
I'm in dire need of rest," he quip-
King rebuked critics who say
he should not mix civil rights with
Vietnam. "Sometimes one must
ta1pe a stand which is neither safe,
politic, nor popular," King said,
"but a stand his conscience tells
him is right. I am a Baptist
preacher and I'm not going to
segregate ray moral concerns."
King's visit was sponsored by
local chapters of the National As-
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People and the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference.
A previous speaking engagement
in July was postponed during the
riot that took place in Toledo at
the time of the Detroit disorders.
Spiritual Lynchings
The Negro today is facing a
major economic depression, worse
than the depression of the thir-
ties, King said. He cited a figure
of 58 per cent of young Negroes
in Cleveland who earn less than
the official poverty level. This
figure could be matched in almost
every city, he said. "We are being
lynched psychologically and spir-'
itually in housing, education and
jobs," King said.
"Our white brothers tell us they
don't want us to live anywhere
our money can take us," he added.
This remark was aimed at a re-
cent defeat by a 2%-1 margin of
a fair housing ordinance in To-j
ledo. Local civil rights leaders
pledged to continue pushing for
equal housing opportunities,.start-
ing with.a rally tomorrow in a city
"No community in the country,"
Kingdeclared, "can boast of clean
hands in the area of brotherhood."
Whites Afraid
He called for solutions to racial
injustice through massive "action'
programs" on a nationwide scale.
"Laws cannot necessarily change
the hearts of men, but they can
change habits and pretty soon at-
titudes will follow," he said.
"All too many of our white
brothers are sick' on the housing
issue. The only way whites can
overcome fear is to give them the
opportunity to confront the ob-
ject of their fear."

SHA Approves
Four Landlords
Recommendations Based on Rent,
Leases, Owner-Student Relations
Student Housing Association has recommended four Ann Arbor
landlords after their survey of rent levels, maintenance, damage de-
posit policies, student relations and general overall quality of housing.
Mike Koeneke, a spokesman for SHA, said the four recommended
are Summit Associates, University Towers, Huron Towers and Dennis
The recommendations will be posted around campus and a hous-

Reasons for the recommendations were:
-Summit Associates was chosen for excellent student relations,
moderate rent, excellent maintenance and a flexible lease.

Allen sought to illustrate that
the buttons now popular among
iyoung people subtly emphasize
several Communist propaganda
themes. "These buttons tell us
much about how the minds of the
young leftists work," he said.
Buttons which berate or ridicule
the police (e.g., "Warning: Your
Local Police are Armed and
Dangerous") reinforce the Com-
munist tactic of undermining pub-
lic confidence in local law en-
forcement, he said.
Allen pointed out that destroy-
ing confidence in law enforcement
agencies is one of the fundamental
tactics used by communists when
they initially infiltrate a country.
"Buttons which support the
legalization and usage of drugs
reveal the youngsters' heavy de-
pendence upon drugs.
Allen claimed the mass media
give highly misleading and incor-
rect coverage of the new left.
He cited a recent issue of Look

the "hippies" of Hollywood's sun-

"Reading this article, one would
expect these kids to be a group of
young Aristotles and P l a t o s.
Having talked to about 200 of
them, I think that they are un-
fortunate, mixed-up kids who rely
upon drugs and who have no in-
tention of ever supporting them-

Allen condemned several left-

particularly criticized the demon-

of Regents unanimously named
financial expert Charles J. Hitch
president of the University of
California yesterday, succeeding
ousted Clark Kerr effective as of
next Jan. 1.
The 57-year-old economist has
been a vice president of the uni-
versity since 1965, when Kerr
brought him to California from
the Defense Department.
School was out as the announce-
ment came after a 40-minute spe-
cial' executive session. Classes
don't resume until next week.
Selection of Hitch ended an
eight-month search for a successor
to Kerr by a four-man Regents
committee headed by Philip L.
Hitch comes to the Job with im-
pressive credentials: Rhodes schol-
ar, economist, expert in finance
and system analysis.


Financial Aid Plan Devised
To Meet Tuition Increases
All undergraduate students currently receiving full tuition
scholarships will automatically be awarded additional grants to com-
pensate for the increase in student fees this year, according to Ivan
W. Parker, Associate Director of Financial Aids.
The University is now in the process of increasing resident stu-
dent scholarships by $72 per year, and out-of-state grants by $300.
Recipients include any undergraduates who have won tuition scholar-
ships from the University, the Michigan Higher Education Assistance
Authority, or from other state agencies, Parker said.
University officials are currently negotiating with private donors,

David Wurfel, professor of pol-
itical science at the University of
Missouri who spent four weeksI
looking into pre-election and
election procedures in South Viet-
nam, charged Thursday that "ex-
tensive fraud" was committed dur-
ing the Sept. 3 balloting there.
Wurfel, who spent last year in
residence at the University in the
political science department, felt
that while the election was an
"improvement" over similar bal-
loting in the days of President
Ngo Dinh Diem, it fell far short
of the standard of honesty needed
to win the support of the Viet-
namese people.
He said nothing short of the
defeat of the military candidates
- Gen. Nguyen Van Thieu and
Gen. Nguyen Cao Ky - would
convince most Vietnamese that
the election was honest.
Wurfel, who has made five
previous trips to Vietnam, told
a press conference that the U.S.
team of election observers had
not reported fraud because "they
were shielded from the kind of
contact that would raise doubt
in their mind."

By contrast, Wurfel, whose trip voting cards said to have beenI

A ruling on the applicability of
Public Act 379 to the University
is expected shortly, University of-
ficials said yesterday.
A suit filed by the University in
Washtenaw County Circuit Court
claims that the act, which grants
public employes the right to form

such as industrial firms, for
higher awards to balance the in-
crease in tuition. However, stu-
dents who originally received only
partial scholarships "have not
been compensated except in in-
dividual cases," Parker said.
Extra Appropriation
To provide for the new scholar-
ship boosts, the Regents appro-
priated an additional $450,000 in
August. The University Student
Aid Fund now exceeds $5 million.
Of this sum, $1.4 million are
awarded in scholarships, while the
rest function as rotating loans.
Grants to in-state students ac-
count for ofer 95 per cent of the
total allocation.
Since the start of the fall term,
the Office of Student Aids has
been "simply overwhelmed by stu-
dent requests" for financial as-
sistance, Director William Rea
said. But according to Parker, "we
have students applying for schol-
arships every day of the year
whether we have a tuition in-
crease or not. I imagine the de-
mand is somewhat more than us-
ual, but not to a great extent."
No Hardship

tra funds for these people as far

constitutional autonomy.
Attorneys for the state and the
University met Thursday and
agreed to expedite the case. All
briefs will be filed with Circuit
Judge William F. Agar by Oct.
5 and oral arguments are sched-
uled for Oct. 9.
Agar said he would deliver a
decision as soon as possible.
The University said the decision,
regardless of outcome, probably
will ultimately be appealed to the
State Supreme Court.
Central Michigan University has
joined the University as co-plain-
tiff in the case. A parallel suit
filed by Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity is also before Agar.
The University's suit was filed
in December, 1964. Last week, the
University agreed toact in ac-
cordance with PA 379 pending
the outcome of the suit.
The agreement came after a
week-long labor dispute which
stopped work on $65 million worth
of University construction and
curtailed services at residence

Streamlined Pentagon
He helped Defense Secretary
McNamara streamline the Penta-
gon during the Kennedy Admin-
istration, and before that was a
financial analyst for a leading
research firm. Since joining the
university he has become its bud-
get expert.
He said in a prepared state-
"... The University of Califor-
nia is a pioneer: effective conduct
of a muti-campus university is a
relatively new problem in the
world. I shall do my best to help
solve it.
Kerr was fired from his $45,000
a year job last January in a con-
troversial Action by the regents,
in which the then newly elected
Gov. Ronald Reagan figured
prominently. The regents have
been hunting a successor to run
the nine-campus institution since.
'Whiz Kid'
Hitch was chief of Rand Corp.'s
research council when, during the
Kennedy Administration, he went
to Washington as one of Defense
Secretary Robert McNamara's
"whiz kids."
At the university he applied his
talents as a budget expert to a
huge and complex system. The re-
sults won him immediate com-
mendation, and captured the at-
tention of the regents.
His authority and responsibili-
ties were expanded step by step--
vice president - business and fi-
nance, then vice president for ad-
ministration. He coordinated the
functions of other vice presidents.
Hitch, who has been the univer-
sity's top man in budget and other
financial matters, came to the
school with an impressive record.
A graduate of the University of
Arizona, he was a Rhodes scholar
and did graduate work at Harvard.
For 13 years Hitch worked for
the Rand Corp. in nearby Santa
Monica, a "think factory" which
has analyzed many top post-war
