To Consider Housing Chief
The Regents will consider at their monthly meeting today the
appointment of a director of housing to direct University residence

Student Affairs was reorganized last summer.
Under the reorganization, housing, which had been separately
directed by the dean of men's and women's offices, were merged into

WASHINGTON (P)- A bill to
cut off federal support for racially
segregated educational programs
won overwhelming approval yes-
terday in the House Education
A 27-1 vote brought the measure'
out of committee, but that did not
guarantee it would reach the.
House floor. The House Rules'
Committee normally must approve
legislation for floor consideration.
The Administration is opposed'
to the mandatory fund, cut-qff
which the bill would require, pre-
ferring to have discretionary pow-
er to deal with states in which
segregation is practiced. A provi-
sion to grant such discretion and
extend the authority to all feaeral
aid programs instead of just edu-
cational ones is included in the
omnibus civil rights bill now be-
fore another committee.
Would Cut Funds
The Education Committee bill
would cut off funds after June 30,
1964, for segregated programs un-
der the National Defense Educa-
tion Act, Library Services Act,
Vocational Education ,Act, Land
Grant Colleges Act and Impacted
The committee also approved
two other bills which bear on the
civil rights fight.
One would authorize $70 million
over a three-year period to pro-
vide basic education for ,adults.
President John F. Kennedy re-
quested it in his civil rights mes-
sage last month to combat illit-
eracy among Negroes.
The other would increase funds
available .under the Library Ser-
vices Act for grants to commun-
The present $7.5 million for
such services would be increased
to $25 million and an additional
$20 million would be made avail-
able for construction of libraries.
In addition the bill would re-
move the present restriction lim-

general policy of combining par-

Off-campus and affiliated hous-
ing were placed temporarily under
the supervision of director of disci-
pline and student organizations
John Bingley, whose other du-
ties partially overlapped the hans
dling of these types of housing.
When appointed, the new direc-
tor is expected to form policies to
induce a more academic atmos-
amsphere in the residence halls and
to carry outrestablished plans
such as co-educational housing.
In the past year, projects ad-
vancing both these ideas have
been undertaken. Co-educational

WASHINGTON (P)-Yielding to
Congressional pressure, the rail-
road industry agreed yesterday to
a month's delay in its timetable
for the posting of new work rules
which threatened to touch off a
nationwide strike after midnight
House and Senate leaders said
the 30-day postponement, to 12:01
a.m. on Aug. 29, would give Con-
gress sufficient time to act on
President Kennedy's plan to avert
a walkout by turning the dispute
over to the Interstate Commerce
Commission for two years.
It was the seventh time since
1960 that a deadline for imposi-
tion of the manpower-reducing
work rules had been set and then
postponed. Earlier delays came at
the request of the Kennedy Ad-
ministration and as a result of

Loomis told the committee the
two-year life of the Administra-

sonable and necessary to make a

Big Three Agree

Foreign Ministers To Pursue Drive
For Ending Nuclear Experiments
MOSCOW (M--The United States, Britain and the Soviet
Union in a treaty initialed yesterday agreed to end nuclear
testing in the atmosphere, outer space and under water.
They immediately hailed their unprecedented accord as a
major breakthrough toward easing Cold War tensions.
In the agreement, the three powers also affirmed their
determination to continue striving for a complete ban on nu-
clear testing and implied they will give no nuclear aid to
nations that do not go along. The big three foreign ministers

near future after United States Senate ratification. The negotiators expressed hope that the par-

"It will be used to employ per-
sons with educational backgrounds
and pay for the services of a staff
director," Karn commented.
He went on to say that the only
full-time paid employes of the
committee will be the staff direc-
tor and his secretary.
Up to now, the committee, or-
ganized last April by Romney to
look into the short-and-long range
problems of higher education in
the state, has been hindered in
its activity by a lack of funds.
Meets Four Times
The committee, composed of
about 60 members, has met four
times so far and up to now there
has been some question whether
the interim report would be fin-
ished by the estimated completion
date of October, 1963.
The interim report on the short
range needs is due in October
while the long range report is due
later in the year.
The Kellogg grant had been an
"open secret" for weeks and is the
second time that the foundation
has come to the aid of a state
group in needs of funds.
In 1961, a $85,000 grant eased
the monetary problems of the Con-

CHARLES DE GAULLE
WASHINGTON ( ')-The major
difference between the pending
limited nuclear test ban and the
treaty offered in 1962 by the
United States and Britain is in
an escape clause covering with-
drawal from the pact.
The new treaty says that each
nation has the right to withdraw
from the treaty if it decides that
"extraordinary events" related to
nuclear matters "have jeopardized
the supreme interests of its coun-
try." A three-months' notice of
withdrawal' is required.
In the 1962 proposal which the
United States and Britain pre-
sented to the 18-nation disarma-
ment committee in Geneva, there
were three points covering with-
drawal from the agreement, in-
cluding a provision that a, con-
ferepce be called to consider the

In this case the significant
phrase is "not to carry out" any
