Jniversity Administrators Meet
[o Discuss Financial Problems

Experts Note Trend Toward
Acceptance of Contraception

(Continued from Page 1)
granted directly to students, gen-
eral support grantsfor the univer-
sities themselves, and grants for
specific projects and programs.
Different groups support differ-
ent programs, Kerr said. In their
legislative proposals NASULGC
members favored the kind of pro-
grams that give money directly to
institutions. They opposed tax
credits and such direct student-
aid programs as the proposed
"educational opportunity bank."
These programs, they felt, would
result in sharply increased tuition
fees.
Kerr predicted that a combina-
tion of the various funding pro-
posals would eventually be imple-
mented.'
One combination plan was of-
fered by owa's President Bowen.
He called for "minimal" grants to
students, based on need, that
would allow them to get an in-
expensive education close to home;
loans that would allow students
to attend more expensive and dis-
tant universities; and basic sup-
port grants to 'institutions, based
on rising enrollments and cost per
student.
More Federal Funds
Though the educators say they
need more federal funds to -meet
the needs of' their- 'students and
keel 'charges down, the govern-
ment seems inclined to cut back
aid to higher education.
In a 10-minute' speech given
over a telephone hookup Wednes-
day, President Johnson told the
educators to seek more funds from
the state and private sources. He
noted that federal support of
higher education has risen from
14 to 26 per cent while state sup-
port remained the same. His mes-
sage seemed clear; the federal
government is not now prepared
to continue large increases in its
support of higher education.
He did present three long-term
goals, however, calling on the edu-
cators to aim for their fulfillment
by 1976. The goals are:
" Increasing the percentage of
high school graduates who go on
to college from one-half to two-
thirds.
0 Eliminating all financial bar-
riers to higher education for po-
tential students from the poorer
segments of society.h,
r Maintaining the pr es en t
quality of higher education.
Morse Speaks
Sen. Wayne.Morse (D-Ore.) told
the 'conference about several areas

-fellowships, building construc-
tion, international education, and
the teacher corps-in which funds
have been reduced or cut off by
Congress. N A S U L G C director
Thackery echoed Morse's state-
pessimism.
"It has not been a good year,"
he said, and the outlook for next
year is "anything but good."
Nor can higher education "look
forward with any degree of com-
placency to a better time in the
future when the Vietnam war will
be settled, and the billions in-
volved made available for other
purposes," Thackery reported.
"Now and for the next several
months, much of the activity in
and out of Congress with respect
to national legislation, and the ad-
vocacy of legislation, can best be
interpreted as a jockeying for
position against the time when
the present war budget can be
substantially reduced."
How can higher education hold
its own in that jockeying and also
get more federal funds now?
* "You must take the facts to your
government and fight for what is

needed," Sen. Morse told the col-
lege presidents. He suggested that
they talk directly to their own
Senators and Representatives to
try to get better legislation and
funding for higher education out
of Congress.
The presidents apparently agree.
NASULGC President James Jen-
sen, President of Oregon State
University, said the importance
and needs of higher education
must be made clear to the public.
But before that can be done, the
administrators were told, higher
education must end its division
over what form federal assistance
upon ought to take. Kerr called
for more discussion among uni-
versities and said "the distinction
between public and private institu-
tion is out of date."
Even Thackery, who represents
state universties and who had
some harsh words for the proposals
most often advocated by private
institutions, agreed. "Unless the
higher education commuity speaks
with uity and emphasis," he said,
"it is likely have no priority at all.

By JENNY STILLER
and AMY FOX
American women seem to be
approaching total acceptance of
some form of birth control, two
sociologists declared yesterday at
the Sesquicentennial Conference
on "Fertility and Family Plan-
ning: A World View."
Charles S. Westoff, associate
director of the Office of Popula-
tion Research at Princeton Uni-
versity, and Norman B. Ryder,
director of the Center for Demo-
graphy and Ecology at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin, told the con-
ference yesterday morning that
"the norm of fertility control has
become universal in contemporary
America" regardless of religious
preference or devoutness, race,
education, income, husband's oc-
cupation, or area of residence.
The trend toward increased
practice of birth control was
particularly evident among Ca-
tholic and non-white women,
Westoff and Ryder said.
They predicted that the trend
will continue, though necessarily
at a slower pace as the percentage

of those to whom birth control
is unacceptable slowly diminishes.
The major group differences still
persisting relate not to whether
a couple will practice contracept-
ion but rather to variations in
how long after marriage the
couple delayed use of contracept-
ion and to regularity with which
contraception is practiced.
Ryder and Westoff's findings
were the results of national sur-
veys taken in 1955, 1960, and 1965.
Bernard Berelson, vice-president
of the Population Council, re-
ported that more than four mil-
lion couples around the world
have started voluntary family
plainning during the past five
years. As a result of the inter-
uterine device alone, he added, an
estimated 2.5 million births have
been prevented.
Birth control pills will replace
abortion as the primary method
of fertility regulation in the next
decade, according to Dr. R. T.
Ravenhold, director of the Popu-
lation Service of the War on Hun-
ger, Agency for International De-
velopment.

Ravenholt and other famliy
planning experts discussed future
fertility control in the devolop-
ing world at the closing session
yesterday afternoon.
Induced abortion now plays a
major role in fertility control, al-
though it is generally illegal, said
C. Chandrasekeran, United Na-
tions Regional Demographic Ad-
visor.
Most of the delegates agreed
that the pill will eventually win
widest acceptance because it is the
most effective and easiest con-
traceptive to use.
According to Dr. I. C. Yuan of
Taiwan, "most of the govern-
ments in the developing world
have been interested in using bith
control. Most of these will try
to regulate fertility in the next
few years," he said.
At a convocation yesterday
morning, the University awarded
honorary d o c t o r of science
degrees to Dr. Leona Baumgart-
ner of Harvard Medical School;
Frank W. Notestein, president of
the Population Council; and
David V. Glass of the London
School of Economics.

Fortas, Perkins, Vanik Join
In Castigating Gen. Hershey

DAILY OFFICIAL BULEI
.....:..:........'.."" a.:\":..}. :":.M":M:.:M::::;M.f:MM".::;:.x ,""?a,4.'

From Wire Service Reports
United States Supreme Court
Justice Abe Fortas joined the pres-
idents of two Ivy League univer-
sities and an Ohio congressman
who have spoken out against a
proposal 'to strip draft deferments
from students who interfere with
military recruiting.
Fortas charged in a speech
Thursday night at Colgate Uni-
versity that the author of the
proposal, Lt. Gen. Lewis B. Her-
shey, head of the Selective Service,
is "a law unto himself and re-
sponds only to his own conversa-
tion." Fortas further said Her-
shey's proposal probably did not
"have the approval of the execu-
tive branch of the government."
Earlier, Rep. Charles A. Vanik,
(D-Ohio), Cornell University Pres-
ident James A. Perkins, and Ray
L. Heffner, president of Brown
University, took issue with Hershey
in separate actions.
Vanik disclosed a letter dated
Oct. 26 in which Hershey told local.

draft boards that draft law viola-
tions were of "utmost concern" to
the Selective Service System and
to the public, and that "I therefore
request each government appeal
agent to make known to the local
boards any knowledge of such vio-
lations and any knowledge of a
violation should be reported to the
state director."
Vanik called Hershey's effort
"an attempt to make a mockery
of the local services provided by
the appeal agent."
In-a previously disclosed letter,
also written Oct. 26, Hershey sug-
gested that local boards consider
revoking college deferments of lo-
cal student protestors who inter-
fere with the selective service
operations.
In a telephone conservation with
special assistant to President
Johnson, Douglass Cater, Perkis
urged that the White House abol-
ish the Hershey proposal, saying
"I am particularly opposed if it
involves action on the'university
campus."
In Providence, Heffner said he
intends to tell Hershey he strongly
disagrees with the proposal, con-
sidering it possible illegal and
"certainly unwise."
He said students who engage in
forms of protest involving physical
force or obstruction "shall be sub-
ject to university discipline," but
that "peaceful assembly, free ex-
change of ideas and orderly pro-
test are among the basic rights
of all members of a university
community."
In Geneva, N.Y., Hobart College
Dean Richard DeBold called upon
President Johnson to relieve Her-
shey of his post, charging the
Selective Service director with a
"a lack of ability to understand
the youth in our times."
"I strongly urge that you relieve
Hershey of a command for which
he is obviously incompetent," De-
Bold concluded.

Havens:, Entertainng

By DAVID MELLINGER
Ritchie Havens isn't spectacular
but he is entertaining. His major
attribute is more his personality
than his musical ability. He comes
on at Canterbery House as a really
good man who has an average
man-on-the-street voice and me-
diocre skill on the guitar.
Ritchie's voice really doesn't
have it. He has little depth and
has to shout when he is singly
loudly. There's no special howl or
grate in his tone, of the sort that
makes for fine blues singers; nor
does he grind his throat in road
gravel like Dylan.
These absences give rise to dif-
ficulties, since Ritchie's repertoire
consists of many blues and Dylan
songs. He doesn't come out well on
such songs' as "Maggie's Farm"
and "Just Like a Woman," because
Dylan songs aren't musically re-
markable in themselves, and a
special, powerfully expressive voice
is necessary to make them great.
However, Havens sings with gool

feeling, and in songs which don't
demand an excellent vocal quality
he comes out well. His slow blues
verson of "San Francisco Bay"
and his fast "KKK ballad"
("They're good guys when you're
in a rush")-"It's Not Too Easy
to be Free"--come off powerfully.
When he plays fast he plays
loudly, capoing with his huge
thumb, and keeps the rhythm go-
ing strong.
During the first set Havens was
accompanied by his henchman,
Dick Williams on guitar. Williams
was very competent but didn't add
a great deal to the sound; he just
supported Haven's guitar, rather
than building on the rhythm or
supplementing the sound of the
songs with an additional part. In
the second and third sets, Carter
C. C. Collins did a fine job ac-
companying on the congas. The
performance of the group as a
whole was satisfying, but if you're
looking for an evening of standout
entertainment, "Hard Day's Night"
is a better bet.
