Researcher Advises Grand Rapids,
Saginaw Areas for State Schools
LANSING (P)-A researcher who studied higher education in
Michigan yesterday tentatively recommended establishment of new
four-year state colleges at Grand Rapids and Saginaw.
The suggestion came from John Dale Russell in his final summary,
report to the special Joint Legislative and Citizens Committee set up
in 1956 to conduct the two-year, $160,000 survey.
Russell, a state education administrator in New Mexico and
formerly with the United States Office of Education, will return to
Michigan for a Nov. 6-7. conference with state college heads and
_ committee members. In general,
his research report drew together
and restated the conclusions in 12

TRUCE
Rfed China
Extension
TOKYO (A")-Red China hinted
vaguely yesterday that its one-
week Formosa cease-fire-due to
expire Oct. 12-may be extended
for "a long period."
The Peiping hint was contained
in a statement by a Foreign Min-
istry spokesman distributed by the
new China news agency.
The statement made a slashing
attack on American hopes for a
permanent cease-fire in the For-
mosa Strait but went on to say:
"Whether our troops stop or do
not stop their bombardment of
Quemoy and whether they stop it
for a short or a long period, those
are purely internal matters of our
country which the Americans have
no right whatever to look into."
The statement accused the Unit-
ed States of continued violations
of Red Chinese territory during
the limited cease - fire but the
Foreign Ministry spokesman made
no definite declaration that the
Communists would resume their
bombardment of Quemoy after
Oct. 12 even if these went on.
It was the first time since- the
Red Chinese guns halted their
shelling of Quemoy Oct. 6 that
the possibility of an extended
cease-fire has been mentioned,
even vaguely.

WASHINGTON (M - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles evi-

ambassador at Warsaw yesterday
to press Red- China for an exten-

The United States goal is a
prolonged truce which could per-
mit steps toward some lasting set-
tlement.
Ambassador Jacob Beam is
scheduled to meet Red Chinese
envoy Wang Ping-Nan today in
the latest of a series of talks on
the Formosa crisis.
The Red Chinese suspended last
Sunday their bombardment of

both could link educational sta-
tions in all portions of Michigan.
At present it has not been de-
termined whether such a network
would aim at elementary educa-
tion, science training or even use
of retired persons' leisure time,
Stirton stressed, and consideration
of college courses for credit re-
mains a long way off.
But a state-wide network would
reduce costs of educational televi-
sion "95 per cent" in some com-
munities, Stirton said, making
possible use of vacant channels
already assigned to education.
It would probably prove neces-
sary to change some channels in
setting up the network, Sirton
added, but specific planning re-
mains to be done.
What Bartlett's conference of
educators, lawyers, judges, labor
representatives and businessmen
did, according to Stirton, is to start
communitisto evaluating their
'educational television needs. Other
conferences will be called in the
future, Bartlett told the delegates.

U.S. Proposes
Nuclear Test,
Suspensions
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. W -
The United States and its West-
ern allies are proposing suspen-
sion of all nuclear weapons tests
while attempts are made to nego-
tiate a permanent ban.
Informed sources said last night
this is a key part of a United
States resolution to be introduced
today in the United N'ations' Gen-
eral Assembly's 81-nation politi-
cal committee.
The move obviously is aimed to
bring pressure on the Soviet
Union, which has resumed tests in
advance of United States-British-
Soviet talks due to start in Gene-
va Oct. 31.
There has been speculation
that the Russians may" be getting
ready to scuttle the talks on end-
ing tests under an international
inspection system.
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko said on Monday that
the Russians feel free to continue
tests until they reach the total
of the United States and Britain
combined since March 31. That is
the date the Russians announced
a unilateral decision to end tests.
The United States and Britain
have agreed to suspend tests pro-
vided the Soviet Union refrains'
from testing.

Spend $8G
The report says that "Investig.
tion has disclosed that the average
student. spends about $80 a year
on books and supplies."
The Union could not hope to
return more than 4 per, cent of
this sum, primarily based-on an
exemption from state sales tax,
applicable onik to text books as
presently- granted the bookstore
at Michigan State University.
"The seemingly high mark-ups
on used texts by local commercial
bookstores comes very close to the
actual obsolescence and overhead
costs directly applicable to this
service."
Mark - ups on new textbooks-
seem about standard over most
of the country. A Union Bookstore
could not possibly 'survive on the
margin from the handling of new
and used school texts. -
Enter Market
The handling of supplies and
general trade items is a necessity
for the maintenance of a new
bookstore, and here the Union
would be compelled to enter the
general commercial market and
would not be able to provide even
the 3 per cent sales tax exemp-
tion."
However, the report states that
should the project become eco-
nomically feasible in the future,
the Finance Committee has the
power to authorize the funds for
the expenditure and the matter
need not be brought before the
board again.
