The Republican Party won .the mayoralty and all five City Coun-
cil seats up in yesterday's Ann Arbor election.
Cecil 0. Creal defeated Democrat Lloyd M. Ives in the race for
mayor, 6,728 to 5,107, winning all of the city's five wards and 16 of
20 precincts. Creal got 57 per cent of the votes cast.

Vet's Fund
Vote Due
In Senate
The State Senate will receive a
plan this week to mortgage the
Veteran's Trust Fund and produce
$50 million to fill the empty state
treasury.
The bill, which is expected to
be released by the Appropriations
Committee today or tomorrow,
would provide for mortgaging the
Fund and allowing the University
and Michigan State University to
borrow against-the bonds held by
the Fund.
The University would be able to
borrow $14.3 million to meet its
payrolls until June by this plan.
Currently the University has as-
surance of cash for payrolls only
until May 1.-
Has Passed House
The House of Representatives
has already approved the mort-
gaging scheme.
Sen. Elmer Porter (R-Bliss-
field), chairman of the Appropri-
ations Committee, said the vote to
release the measure would be
close. Members of the committee
have proposed the alternate
scheme of liquidating the fund
and providing cash immediately,
with thefund to be rebuilt with
cigarette, tax revenue by 1971.
Senate majority leader Frank
D. Beadle (R-St. Clair) proposed
the liquidation plan. He said li-
quidation will provide only $43
million in cash but that it will
provide funds immediately.
Porter Warns
"We can't afford to lose $7 mil-
lion," Sen. Porter declared.
Representatives of the Univer-
sity appeared before the commit-
tee Thursday to explain the cur-
rent financial situation in Ann
Arbor. Vice-President in Charge
of Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont told the committee
the state would be $14.3 million!
behind in its payments to the
University by the end of the fiscal
year June 30.
He . said using the veteran's
bonds as collateral would be
"feasible from the legal and fi-
nancial point of view."
Tells 'U' Position
University President Harlan
Hatcher said the University would
favor "any plan to provide the
necessary funds." The Regents
adopted this as their position on
the Veteran's Fund at their
March meeting.
President Hatcher added he was
"willing to go along with what-
ever plan is sounder," liquidation
or mortgaging of the Fund.
Michigan State University Pres-
ident John A. Hannah told the
committee MSU has no money
with which to meet its payroll
April 27.
Several senators have denied;
the existence of a cash problem
at all. Sen. John P Smeekens (R-
Coldwater) termed the current
situation a "phony crisis."

'New WSU Status Passed;
Detroit Given School Aid
By the Associated Press
BULLETIN
Wayne State University, scheduled to become a state university
in July, appeared headed toward much-sought constitutional status
at 3:30 a.m. today.
At the same time, six Democrats, backed by a strong Wayne
County vote, led the field for six positions on the newly-created WSU
Board of Governors.
If the proposal goes through, the Detroit school would join the

ing that she is considering asking
for a recount but is not sure.
In the second ward, incumbent
Florence R. Crane defeated Wil-
liam K. Marshall, 1,347 to 508.
Henry V. Aquinto won the Third
Ward seat, beating Robert G. Fa-
ber, 1,721 to 1,234.
George A. Keebler kept his
Fourth Ward Council seat, de-
feating Ted J. Heusel, 1,327 to 853.
In the Fifth Ward, 'Republican
Bent F. Nielsen defeated Demo-
drat Weston E. Vivian, 1,543 to
1,42.
In perfect voting weather, the
turnout was *53 per cent of the
city's 22,393 registered voters.
In his victory statement, Creal,
former City Council president, said
"I feel very proud that the people
of Ann Arbor have placed their
confidence in me.
"I certainly will do my very best
to carry out my ideas of being a
good hnayor for them. It's my
philosophy that the government
should be* for the people and
should express their will. I think
my victory is due to the very fine
organization and people that
worked on my behalf."
Ives, who will serve out the re-
maining half of his two-year
Council term, said, "We're sorry,
to lose, naturally, but we're proud
of the kind of campaign we car-
ried on. We think we campaigned
on issues. I wish Cecil Creal well."
Outgoing Mayor, Prof. Samuel
Eldersveld of the political science,
department, expressed "surprise
and disappointment" at the Demo-
cratic defeat. He praised the "tre-
mendous Republican organization."

University and Michigan State U
May Extend
Bus Service
Ann Arbor's bus service, sched-
uled to end Saturday, may con-
tinue at least until June on a non-
subsidy basis.
Officials of Ann Arbor Transit,
Inc whose stockholders voted
April 2 to discontinue operations,
met with city officials yesterday
in the office of Ann Arbor's mayor,
Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld of the
political science department.
No details of the plan coming
out of the meeting were an-
nounced, but bus firm coordinator
John W. Rae confirmed yester-
day that both city and school
service would continue on a tem-
porary basis if the plan is ap-
proved, giving time to work out a
possible permanent solution.
Ann Arbor Transit last month
reported a deficit of $21,540 run
up in the 25 months since the local
firm replaced Great Lakes Grey-
hound Lines as Ann Arbor's bus1
company.
The meeting yesterday was con-
cerned with the short-term exten-
sion until June, rather than dis-
cussion of a long-term solution.

The University has launched a
campaign to raise $2 million for
Phoenix-Memorial Project.
James C. Zeder, Chrysler Corp.
vice-president and chairman of
the fund campaign committee, re-
ported the original funds raised to
establish the fund in 1948 are
nearly exhausted. Zeder explained
that $2 million would finance the
Project's operation for five more
years.
Also on the committee are Earl

niversity as state schools sharing
constitutional status, ,iith one
limitation: Wayne would be forced
to present annual detailed ac-
counts to the state legislature,
which its sister schools at Ann
Arbor and East Lansing do not do.
Wayne, created by the legisla-
ture, is winding up a three year
transition period from city uni-
versity to state institution. Two
six-year, four-year and two-year
terms were open on the school's
governing board.
Dearborn voters rejected a
charter amendment which would
'have provided a 25 per cent in-
crease in the salaries of city police-
men. The vote was 18,831 to 13,704.
The rejection vote followed the
lead of Mayor Orville L. Hubbard,
who strongly opposed the pay raise.
Dearborn voters turned out in
record numbers.
School Crisis Eased.
Detroit voters passed both a
school bonding proposal and one
calling for increased taxation for
schools. The tax raise passed 134,-
547 to 80,448 (975 of 1,317 districts
reporting). It will meet rising
operating costs' and pay for one-
third of needed new schools.
The bond issue, open only to
taxpayers and their spouses, was
passing 89,418 to 67,248 at the
same point last night. The $60
million provided will pay the re-
maining two-thirds of school con-
struction.
Supreme Court justices George
Edwards and John D. Voelker
building up commanding leads in
Wayne County and comfortable
margins outstate, were virtually
assured of reelection last night.
With 1,042 of 5,182 precincts re-
porting, Edwards was running two-
to - one ahead of his nearest
challenger, William H. Baldwin.
Edwards had polled 86,191 votes,
Baldwin 43,814, in the non-par-,
tisan balloting.
Edwards and Voelker, nominees
of the Democratic State Conven-
tion, both were shooting for their
first, full eight-year terms. Bald-
win, an Oakland County attorney,j
was a Republican nominee.
Voelker Margin High
Voelker piled up 73,679 votes
to 36,874 for the other GOP nom-'
inee, Maurice F. Cole, and 34,7531
for Kenneth W. Cole, a Prohibition
Party nominee.
Edwards led Baldwin 55,408 to
33,896 with 667 outstate precincts
reporting and 30,783 to 9,918 on
the basis of returns from 375;
Wayne County precincts.
It appeared Edwards' final mar-
gin might hit or top 200,000 if
the early trend held up.

SGC Plane1
By PHILIP POWER
Last night the Student Govern-
ment Council Plan Clarificationj
Committee held its first meeting
open to the public.
The Committee, created for the
purpose of re-examining the SGC
Plan, heard a student proposal
for tentative discussion submitted
by Ron Gregg, '60, new Council
president.
The proposal's maj or 'departure
from the old plan suggested that
the Board of Review be abolished
as a review agency for the deci-
sions of SGC, and the veto power
of the president of the University
substituted for it.
Could Delegate Veio
The president's veto could be
delegated by him to any other
member of the administration he
wished.
Gregg also proposed a tentative
committee, to be composed of
faculty members, administration
and representatives of the Coun-
cil which- would discuss topics on
SGC's agenda before the Council
acted on them.
This, he said, would give the
administration and faculty, the
opportunity to contribute their
thinking and suggestions to SGC
on issues which affected them be-
fore a final decision was reached.
Faculty Air Views
The faculty members presented
their own statement on the SGC
Plan for purposes of discussion.
The proposal noted that "the
essential ambiguity in the present
SGC Plan seems to have origin-
ated in the use of powers delegat-
ed to the Board in Review."
Two alternatives were offered
for discussion of the plan.
Alternatives Seen
There could be either a "Broad
delegation of powers with a me-
chanism for adequate protection
of the equities of other segments
of the University."
Or there could be a narrower
area of jurisdiction given the
Council, with a lesser need for re-
view.
Discussion remained in the pre-
