Kennedy, Asks Congress
To Revise Qu.ota System
WASHINGTON (A')-President John F. Kennedy told Congress
yesterday that country-by-country immigration quotas are "without
basis in either logic or reason" and should be abolished.
Kennedy proposed legislation that would do away with the 39-
year-old national quotas on a gradual basis during the next five years.
A major effect of the program would be to increase annual
immigration from the 1962 level of 92,000 to a planned level ofI

Personnel Director
Special To The Daily
MIAMI BEACH-In the midst
of parliamentary haggeling yester-
day the national governors con-
ference suspended its rules to
pass a motion that its "executive
committee give top priority to
the matter of civil rights for the
coming year."
The motion, sponsored by Demo-
cratic Gov. John Dempsey of
Connecticut, passed 38-3 and wip-
ed out all chance for Republican
Gov. Nelson Rockefeller andother
GOP governors to go on record
as being responsible for any civil
rights motions produced by the
Immediately after Dempsey in-
troduced his proposal and asked
for a suspension of rules, Rocke-
feller attempted to add an amend-
ment which would have set up a
"special committee" in place of
the executive committee to handle
civil rights.
Out of Order
Conference chairman Gov. Al-
bert Rosellini of Washington ruled
Rockefeller out of order until a
motion to suspend the rules had
passed. The rules suspension mo-
tion, which requires a three-
fourths vote, carried 36-5.
When Rockefeller again tried to
press his amendment, the gov-
ernors moved to table it, 25-17.
Dempsey then moved for a vote
on his motion which passed lack-
ing only Alabama, Mississippi and
South Carolina support.
During the roll call, Democratic
Gov. George C. Wallace of Ala-
bama and Rockefeller asked for
and were granted time to explain
their votes. After the vote, Rosel-
lini asked them to file explana-
tions to the conference secretary,
since the scheduled civil rights
"debate" had extended past its
4 p.m. deadline.
Allows Speeches
Rosellini finally allowed Wal-
lace and Rockefeller to speak for
one minute each. Rockefeller said
that he had "been accused of
playing politics, If the conference
acted in its procedural way in
the beginning, we would have
avoided any trouble."
Earlier in the session Republi-
can Gov. Mark Hatfield of Oregon
representing 15 GOP governors
proposed to suspend the rules and
pass a motion "for the purpose of
introducing ,a meaningful civil
rights resolution for a meaningful
vote." The motion failed 18-27.
Hatfield later issued a state-
ment on behalf of Republican
governors which said that "the
majority of governors here assem-
obled have abdicated a funda-
mental responsibility of the con-
ference, namely to have a mean-
ingful conclusion drawn concern-
ing this vital issue."
Wallace followed with a motion
condemning President John F.
Kennedy's civil rights bill before
Congress. His motion failed 10-35.
The session opened with a blast
by Rosellini at "some members
using the grave issue of civil
rightsas ammunition for political
"The voices of several governors
in particular have been loud in
accusations and denunciations.
Vice-President Lyndon B. John-
son summoned the nation's squab-
bling governors last night to join
in providing a "responsible Ameri-
can answer"-not a Democratic
or Republican answer-to what he
called corrosive racial wrongs.

The vice-president stepped into
a national governors' conference
torn by bickering over politics and
the civil rights issue.
"The trust of public leaders,"
Johnson said, "will not be kept by
exploiting the issue for partisan
ends or discouraging its solution
for personal advantage.

Change Linked to Educa'tipon
riy:: i

Dean William Haber of the
literary college links closely the
instability of today's world and
the obligations of higher educa-
"In a time unequaled in the
history of the world for its
changing patterns in all fields
from political science to eco-
nomics, only the broadly edu-
cated person is in a position to
adjust himself to these chang-
es," Dean Haber commented.
He pointed to the technolog-
ical revolution and the current
battle raging on the civil rights
issue as examples of changes oc-
curring on the domestic scene.
In international affairs he used
the evolving nations of Asia and
Africa to illustrate his belief.
"For the new nations groping
toward a better life there is no
such thing as stability," he said.
"The only stability is the sta-
bility of change. This can be
applied to ourcountry and to
our individual worlds as well."
Continual Adjustment
In the face -of the great ad-
justments society is continually
forced to make in the present
decade, universities and the
University must help prepare
their students for the adjust-
ments they will have to make.
"They must be helped to under-
stand the reason and the na-
ture of change and how to'
adapt themselves to it," he said.
Turning to more specific
problems of higher education,
he explained the pressure under
which higher education finds
itself is the result of three eas-
ily identifiable sources. They
are, "the increasing number of
high school graduates, the rela-

tively greater capacity of Amer-
ican families to underwrite the
cost required for higher educa-
tion, and the growing demand
of employers for college gradu-
ates to fill their job openings."
Impart Challenge
"These three factors impart
an unusual challenge to the lit-
erary college, Dean H a b e r
commented. He termed it a

He stressed the necessity of
maintaining the human side of
liberal arts. "Education must be
preserved and strengthened.
More attention should be foc-
used on training good and crea-
tive teachers who inspire the
student to explore the myster-
ies of both our society and our'
human relations."
Residential College
Regarding the proposal to es-
tablish a small residential col-
lege, within but separate from
the literary college, Dean Haber
said it was "a proposal which
deals with the problem of
growth and would make it pos-
sible for a larger number of
students to take advantage of
high quality education without
engulfing the present structure
of the college." He did not spe-
cifically endorse the proposal
but said the faculty of the lit-
erary college would discuss the
plans in the fall.
The new college would pro-
vide a different curriculum as
well as a different housing sit-
uation from the regular college.
It would not, however, differ in
either student-faculty ratio or
running-cost expenditure per
student from the literary col-
Master Plan
Asked whether he thought the
"Master Plan" of education
which has been put to effec-
tive use in the California school
system could be applied to edu-
cation in Michigan, lDean 1Ha-
ber replied he did not think so.
He explained that the back-
ground of education in the two
states differed too widely to
See HABER, Page 3.

... change and education
challenge which the college
must not only meet but must
win. "One of the most vital
parts of the challenge is the
necessity to prevent numbers
from diluting the quality of the
education. This is not an easy
task in a world, which is in-
creasingly required to deal with'
ever larger numbers of people,
machines, and ideas," he said.


Thay rA sks
Tax Relief
Relieving the burden of busi-
ness and property taxes and mak-
ing hard decisions about imple-
menting the new constitution are
two major problems the Legisla-
ture faces in its special fall ses-
sion, Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-
Ann Arbor) said Monday.
The Senate GOP caucus chair-
man told Ann Arbor Lions Club
that "Michigan business taxes
pose, two major problems; they,
are high in relation to business
taxes levied by competing indus-
trial states and they are partic-
ularly burdensome' to new or mar-
ginal businesses."
Hinder Competition
Thus they are a hindrance in
competition for job-producing in-
dustry, he said.
Thayer also noted: the .tax bur-
den on low income families. "Fai-
ilies of low income pay a greater
percentage of their total income
for such things as food, clothing
and other things but a lower per-
centage on services not subject to
state taxation than do families of
higher income.
He cited the tax problems of re-
tirees and those loving on small
fixed income.
Property Taxes Inadequate
Property taxes are inadequate
to meet the service demands on
local government, Thayer said.
He named three major consti-
tutional decisions facing the Leg-
1) Shall the civil rights commis-
sion be merely a watchdog or
strong body?
2) Shall present county officers
be retained as part of county home
rule charters?
3) What should be the precise
kind of court system to replace
justices of the peace whose offices
will be abolished in five years?
He assured the Lions Club that
"some of the finest minds avail-
able at our state institutions of
higher education" are at work on
law revision proposals.

would be accounted for by putting
to use some 60,000 quota numbers
which} are "wasted" each year by
countries having, larger quotas
than they can use.
Another effect would be to in-
crease sharply immigration from
certain countries-notably Italy,
Greece and Poland.
Quota Discrimination
Kennedy argued that present
quotas discriminate against most
prospective immigrants except/
those coming from northern Eur-
ope. In a letter to Congress, the
President presented an alternative
quota plan-sure to stir contro-
versy-which he said would ob-
serve "principles of equality and
human dignity."
Instead of admitting immigrants
native country, Kennedy proposed
according to quotas assigned their
these priorities:
1) Half of all immigration visas
would be reserved for those likely
to contribute most to the. United
States "by virtue of their excep-
tional skill, training or education."
2) Second priority would go to
those with relatives living in the
UniteI States.
Immigration Ceiling
Within each priority group,
visas would go first to those who
filed applications at the earliest
Under present law, an annual
immigration ceiling of 156,700 is
divided among the other coun-
tries of the world in proportion to
the ancestry of various nationality
groups living in the United States
in 1920.
Kennedy would boost the annual
ceiling to 164,500 and cut each
individual country's quota by 20
per cent a year for five years-un-
til these quotas were entirely elim'-

'Possibiity '
Negotiators Warn
Against Optimism
Until Treaty Signing
MOSCOW 0P)-A nuclear test
ban treaty appeared virtually com-
pleted yesterday but late hour re-
ports both in Washington and
Moscow added a note of caution.
American, British and Soviet ne-
gotiators were bright and smiling
when they left the conference ta-
ble yesterday afternoon, appar-
ently having drawn up a treaty to
ban tests in the air, under water
and in space acceptable to all
However, United States chief
negotiator W. Averell Harriman
suggested that in preparing trea-
ties they were finished when they
were signed-and not before. An-
other meeting was scheduled for
today, possibly to talk about an
East-West non-aggression pact.
In Washington, United States
Secretary of State Dean Rusk told
newsmen after attending a closed
door meeting of the Senate For'-
eign Relations Committee "we
think there is a possibility we
can get an agreement." He said
the onegotiations will continue for
a day or two.
' Earlier Reports
To earlier reports that he might
be going to Moscow perhaps' with
United States lawnakers to take
part in signing a treaty, he com-
mented: "There are no plns t go
anywhere now."
At. the end of yesterday's nego-
tiating ssson Harriman, Britain's
Lord Hailsham and Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei A. Gromyko were
in as jovial a mood as when Pre-
mier Nikita Khrushchev opened
the talks nine days ago.
In London,'Prime Minister Har-
old Macmillan said he would will-
ingly attend a summit conference
if the Moscow; test ban negotia-
tions produced a thaw.
r Questioned in Commons
He was closely questioned in the
House of Commons about the prog-
ress of the Moscow negotiations
for a nuclear test ban.
Picking his words carefully, the
Prime Minister replied:
"I hope we may soon find these
negotiations reach a satisfactory
It still has not been confirmed,
however, that Soviet Premier
Khrushchev is willing to agree to
a testban without insisting on the
conclusion at the same time of
some form of non-aggression pact.
Already there is considerable.
criticism in Congress of the pro-
posed treaty. In a speech prepar-
ed for the House, Rep. Craig Hos-
mer (R-Calif) said it would par-
alyze United States progress in big
weapons when the Soviets have al-'
ready achieved capabilities in this
Another risk, Hosmer said, is
that "the United States gives up
entirely its opportunity to cope
with the Soviet's massive program
of hardening its offensive inter-
continental missile bases."
Meanwhile issuance of a final
communique on the Moscow nu-
clear test ban talks was expected
shortly. W. Averell Harriman was
due to return to Washington soon
afterwards, perhaps by Thursday.

The fact that Princeton and
Yale Universities have both un-
dergone considerable tuition in-
creases this year will probably not
effect the University at all, Clyde
Vroman, director of admissions,1
said yesterday.
Yale has increased its tuition by1
$250 from $1550 last year to $1800
this year. Princeton has raised its
tuition by $170 from $1600 to $1,-
There are two different reac-
tions that could be expected from
the University, Vroman said. One
would be a comparable tuition
raise which he indicated was clear-
ly not going to occur this year,
and probably would not occur next'
year either. "The University does
not hike its tuition just to match1

a tuition raise in another institu-
tion," he pointed out.
The second reaction to the east-
ern colleges' increased fees would
be an increase in the number of
applicants to the University since
the raises 'place the University in
a lower fee bracket. This he said
was also unlikely.q
There is a general pattern in
college applications today, Vro-
man said and this seems to be es-

Two of them, Turkey and Iran,
