For Support
Referendum To Test
Sypport of Race Ban

for votes in Little Rock's impend
S ing referendum on school Integra-
tion stepped up rapidly today fol-
lowing Gov. Orval Faubus' appeal
for a smashing public ballot
against adnfitting Negro students.
Faubus said this would clear the
way for him to reopen the high
schools as segregated private in-
A committee of 50 women, op-
posing the government, was set to
launch an intensive campaign.
"We have grown beyond all ex-
pectations," the chairman said.
The head of the segregationist
Capital Citizens Council accused
the women of scheming to "hood-
wink Little Rock mothers into vot-
ing for integration."?
The referendum is scheduled for
Sept. 27. -
On the ballot are two proposi-
tions - "for" or "against racial
integration of all schools in the
Little Rock school district."
In two related developments
1. Terrance Roberts, one of the
Negro students who went to Cen-
tral High last year under guard
by paratroops, entered Los Angeles1
High School four days ago, his
mother said.
2. United States District Judge
John E. Miller refused a petition
commanding the school board of
Van Buren, Ark., to restore inte-
gration at two schools.
Miller indicated ,he felt that
order is unnecessary. The schools
integrated voluntarily but Negro
students have stayed away since
a strike by white students.
Clarence A. Laws, regional. sec-
retary of the National Association
For The Advancement Of Colored
People, said the Negroes'would re-
turn to both Van Buren schools
Faubus left for the Southern
governors' conference in Lexing-
ton, Ky. George Douthit, of The
Arkansas Democrat who is ac-
companying the governor, said
Faubus is studying a proposal to
set up private corporations and
private boards for each of the four
Little Rock high schools.

With the deadline deferred in
Norfolk where the shutdown of

the six schools would mean the,

were rumblings ol discontent
from two Democratic assembly-
men with the state's massive re-

shuttered three schools.
William R. Hill, Charlottes-
ville's representative in the Vir-
ginia House, said if Almond
couldn't come up with some plan
for opening the city's Lane High

by Monday he would seek support
for a special legislative session to
change the laws.

Hoffa Suit
Court-appointed monitors met
yesterday to decide whether to
file suit to topple James R. Hoffa
as boss of the Teamsters Union on
grounds of corrupt practices.
But the three-man board of
monitors first must decide wheth-
er to suspend operations tempor-

Hoffa's threatened suit to oust
one of the monitors and (2) a
new definition of their powers to

of his lieutenants.

MOVING TIME-Transition seems the theme at Mary Markley. Both freshmen and other students
who already have experienced this time of Joy and trauma appear to be moving in with only the
slightest bit of confusion, each one knowing what he or she is to do and where to go. There is no
wasted motion, or little. With a bit of luck they may get unpacked in time to start classes Monday.

UAW Threatens To Strike,
Ho es for New Contract
DETROIT (A) - The United Auto Workers last night served no-
tice they would strike General Motors and Chrysler but held out'
hopes that-contract settlements could be reached to avert the walkout.
UAW President Walter Reuther said the UAW International Ex-
ecutive Board authorized General Motors workers to strike Tuesday,
Sept. 30. He said the Chrysler strike deadline would be selected 'by
top officers of the union in the light of progress made in further
Reuther said he would enter the Chrysler-UAW talks tomorrow'

tomorrow night whether there
will be a strike.
The UAW, which reached con-
tract settlement with Ford
Wednesday after about a seven
hour strike of 98,000 Ford workers,
said it would not accept a duplicate
of the Ford offer from General
Motors and Chrysler.
Reuther said General Motors is
the toughest problem in so far as
the union is concerned because it
has four times as many. plants as
Chrysler and hundreds of unsolved
disputes at the local level.
"We prefer to wrap up Chrysler
first because it is smaller and the
problem is not so complex," the
UAW president said.
Reuther said, "If the corporation
would get down to real collective
bargaining we, would have an
agreement by Monday. I'll meet
with them Saturday and I'm will-
ing to meet with them Sunday if
they show signs they want to do
some serious bargaining."
Reuther said he was convinced
the big three of the auto indus-
try-GM, Ford and Chrysler-had
a united bargaining front in con-
tract talks with the UAW up to
this week.
"My guess is that Ford, looking
at its problems, broke the united
front when it decided to bargain
in good faith for its workers and
its stockholders."

New, Law
New apartment buildings and
extensively remodeled ones would
be required to provide off-street
parking for their tenants in a
newly proposed change in the city
The revision would require new
multiple-family dwellings (i.e.
apartment buildings) to provide
one and one-third parking spaces
for each family unit. This also
applies t q any building altered 50
per cent or turned into an apart-
ment house.
This parking space would have
to be off the street but accessible
via driveways.
The ordinance will prohibit
parking on the front of the build-
ing and requires that the lots be
surfaced with "concrete or bi-
tuminous surfacing."
The ordinance was presented
before the City Council Monday
night and will be read again at a'
public hearing at 7:30 p.m., Oct.
13 in the Council chambers.
If passed it will require all land-
lords to submit plot plans of build-
ings they plan to erect or alter,
conforming to the new ordinance.

Ann Arbor,
Restrictions of on-street night
parking have been enlarged to1
include practically the entire cam-
pus area.,
This change has been added on'
to "facilitate street 'cleaning and'
snow removal and to eliminate
storage of cars on the city's
streets," noted Lt. H. G. Schlupe,
who is in charge of Ann Arbor's
Police Traffic Bureau.i
The restrictions apply roughly
in the area from the railroad
tracks on the north of Ann Arbor,
South on Division St. to Yost
Field House, east to Forest St. to
Geddes Ave. and then north to the
railroad tracks by way of St.a
Joseph Hospital.
The present plan is to allow
night parking on the north and
east sides of the streets in this
area only on Tuesdays, Thursdays
and Saturdays. On Mondays, Wed-
nesdays and Fridays parking will
be alllowed on the other sides of
these streets.
Francis C. Shiel, manager of
service enterprises for the Uni-
versity, says there have been no
significant increase in the number
of complaints from students hav-
ing problems finding places to
park their cars. The Police De-
partment, however, expects an
increase in violations.
To take care of the extra spaces
needed for the parking of student
cars, parking lots on north cam-
pus have been set aside for the
storage of student cars during the,
school year. Another partial solu-
tion is to allow students to park
their cars on the city parking lots
on Forest St. and Maynard St.
during the night.
Students may also park in the
University parking lots on Church
St. and Thompson St. between the
hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.

ers To Utilize INew Laboratory

The Fluid Engineering Laboratory, nearing completion on North
Campus, will serve both for regular lab classes in the College of
Engineering and for research "to explore new areas of knowledge,"
according to Prof. Glenn V. Edmonson of the engineering school..
The laboratory, when complete, will be used by the engineering
mechanics, mechanical, civil, nuclear, electrical, and chemical engi-
neering departments.
The present building was built with a $2,000,000 appropriation
from the state legislature.
This will be joined by another $2,000,000 section to comprise
a laboratory "unique in its field in its completeness," he said.
Occupation of the building will begin early next month, increasing
to near capacity by the end of the present semester, according to Prof.
