,Announcing Rent Changes
Feldkamp explained that it was
very difficult to insure 60 days
notice since it would mean an-
nouncing rent changes before the
Legislature h a d appropriated
money for them. He felt that the
Legislature could react unfavor-
ably to such changes.
"The issue is really if the Uni-
versity is in the habit of dealing
fairly with the students," said
Cameron. He concluded that while
"it ought to be, it does not always
seem to be."
"Financially it won'tthurt the
University very much to give in
and not ask for the extra ten
dollars for September. $9,240 isn't
very much to pay in order to
establish the principle of dealing
fairly," Caneron said.
Prof. Irving Copi of the philos-
phy department said that,"the
University could have given the
60 days notice but I suspect that
they are not in thehabit of
thinking how their actions will
be accepted.
"Perhaps now they will pay
more attention to how their poli-
cies will be construed . . . The
University, has not always been
in the habit of being considerate,"
he said.
SRC passed the resolution seven
to one. It states:
"On the principle of courtesy
to students who have an arguable
grievance because of their un-
derstanding of their lease, the
committee recommends that the
Univesrity rebate $10 to each
rentee of the University Apart-
ment Facilities who' has paid the
increased rent for September and
accept as full payment checks in
which $10 has been withheld for
The one dissenting vote was
cast by Prof. Thomas Moore of
the zoology department. Although
he agreed with the spirit of the
resolution, he felt that it didn't

Student Government Council, reversing an earlier ac
tion, withdrew from the National . Student Association last
night. The vote was 7-3 and there was no debate.
In other action, Council appointed Thomas Copi, '9Ed,
William Meeske, '69, and Thomas Westerdale, Grad, to fill
three vacant Council seats. The vacancies were created by
the graduation of Nelson Lande and the resignations of Neill
Hollenshead, '70L, and John Preston, '69.
, . Council also appointed Charles Arnold, Grad, and David
Duboff, '69, to fill vacancies on Joint Judiciary Council.
Council's action on NSA stemmed from a growing dis-
satisfaction due to the revelation last January that the or-
ganization had covertly received funds from the Central In-
telligence Agency over a 15-year period.
Disapproval of NSA mounted this August when several

contributing to the polarization

as a separate group," he pointed

The fault of American foreign
policy is that it is "trying to
handle diplomacy in a 19th cen-
tury way while the other parts
of government work in a twen-
tieth century manner," Edwin 0.
Reischauer, professor of history at3
Harvard University and ambas-
sador to Japan from 1960 to 1966,1
said yesterday.
Speaking on "Modern Diploma-
cy" for the "Voices of Civilization"
series to a large audience in Hill:
Aud., Reischauer asserted that the
most important function of diplo-
macy is the representation of the{
aspirations and desires of one peo-
ple to another and not the desires
of one government to another."
The United States, "in a nig-
gardly and feeble way, tries to sell'

"One rule that I learned in my
Japanese experience," Reischauer
said, "Is that if a great country
.ike ours is to have a well-coor-
dinated policy, that policy must be
simple, clear, and honest."
Comparing American foreign
policy in the past to a "great dino-
saur with a much too small brain,"
Reischauer asserted that most
American decisions on foreign pol-
icy are "a result of stimulation
on the ganglia of the dinosaur. "It
is only when a crisis precipitates

Reischauer recommends that we
"move to suppress the war until
negotiations are possible." But he
does not see negotiation occuring
until after the Presidential elec-
tion of 1968, when "the President,
whoever it may be, can have some
flexibility in those negotiations."
Reischauer does not foresee the
possibility of surrender, but hopes
that a cease-fire will occur after
1968. And then hopefully a solu-
; ion by other than military means"
can be achieved.
Reischauer called our non-rec-
ognition of Communist China "a
false position," a position "still
frozen in the Korean War period."
He does not want the U.S. to "be
the blackballers of Communist
China." Rather, the U.S. should
show the Communist Chinese "the

"Men no longer feared the sun,
