WASHINGTON--President John F. Kennedy told the American
ople last night that the nuclear test ban accord initialed in Mos-

However, Kennedy cautioned in a radio-television broadcast that

First, it can be a start
toward a reduction in world ten-

agreement. Kennedy said no one
can predict what further under-
standings, if any, can follow.
To Review Appeals
Replaces Three-Man Faculty Group,
Old Unit on Conduct of Students
By JEAN TENANDER
The Regents yesterday approved a new bylaw which will affect
the judiciary system and formalize reforms decided last spring.
A request for the revison of bylaw 8.15 dealing with the Com-
mittee on Student Conduct was orignally asked for by Vice-Pres-
ident for Student Affairs James A. Lewis.
The change will replace the Committee on Student Conduct
with the University Committee on Standards and Conduct. The new
committee will "serve as a final appeal and review board for all
penalties invoked by judicial bodies within its jurisdiction, ajudicate
violations waived to it by the
Joint Judiciary Council, aid in the

JOHN F. KENNEDY
... hails treaty
Ann Arbor's proposed fair hous-
ing ordinance appears to have hit
a new snag yesterday as Atty.
Gen. Frank J., Kelley ruled the
new constitution's civil rights
commission has the power to en-
force open occupancy.
Kelley, answering the legalques-
tion of Sen. William G. Miliken
(R-Traverse City), said the com-
mission has the power to stop dis-
crimination in ther selling and
renting of private housing.
It will have similar powers in
public accommodation, education
and employment, he added.
Kelley declared that the new
constitution clearly says that pur-
chasing, mortgaging, leasing or
selling of private housing free
from discrimination is a civil
The commission is empowered to,
issue cease and desist orders to
secure compliance, he asserted.
The commission, an eight-mem-
ber bipartisan group, takes office
when the new constitution goes
into effect January 1.

an East-West non-aggression pact
"the most urgent" of possible fu.

continue discussion of a possible
non-aggression pact at a future

In addition it could be a step
toward preventing the spread of
nuclear weapons to nations other
than the four now possessing
them: the United States, Russia,
Great Britain and France.
Harriman has said all three
countries want as many other na-
tions as possible to adhere to the
nuclear test agreement. He men-
tioned especially France a n d
China, but cpnceded the problems
there were tough.
The Chinese have condemned

In an indirect appeal to the
Senate to give its approval to the
treaty, Kennedy urged that the
nation "take that first step" back
from the shadows of war and to-
ward peace. Kennedy's appeal for
Senate ratification came at the,
end of his address.
Meanwhle, C h a i r m a n John
Stennis (D-Miss) announced his
Senate defense preparedness sub-
committee will examine the treaty
proposal in detail. He said his sev-
en-member group wants to know
"whether this agreement fully
protects our national security and

erett M. Dirksen (Ill) told news-

indicated it may have been

The Regents yesterday approved
a request for the establishment of
the new engineering department
of meteorology and oceanography.
Appointment of Aksel C. Wiin-
Nielsen as professor and chairman
of the new department was also
approved at yesterday's meeting.
Receiving his masters degree
from the University of Copen-
hagen and his doctorate from the
University of Stockholm, Prof.
Wiin-Nielsen has been serving as
assistant director of the National
Center of Atmospheric Research
Previously Shifted Around
The study area which now com-
prises the department of meteorol-
ogy and oceanography has for
sonie time been shifted around to
various departments of the college
of engineering. Now a separate de-
partment, it will be able to func-
tion as a distinct unit of the
Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin Niehuss said that the areas of
meteorology and oceanography are
closely linked because they both
deal with "fluids on the earth's
surface and in its atmosphere."
There is a very close .inter-action
between the two, he added.
Niehuss said that the new de-
partment was made a part of the
college of engineering because
scientists in these fields are more
interested in application of con-
cepts than concepts themselves.
"Meteorologists are not primar-
ily interested in weather fore-
casting. They are more involved in
applying meteorological concepts
to other areas," he said.
Of Rail Dispute
WASHINGTON OP) - Railroad
union spokesmen assailed yester-
day President John F. Kennedy's
plan to hand the work-rules dis-
pute to the Interstate Commerce
Commission. Dual hearings, how-
ever, went ahead while congres-
sional leaders pressed for legisla-
tive action ahead of the newly
established strike deadline of Aug.
Secretary of Labor W. Willard
Wirtz said, "There is no basis for
thinking at this point that the
dispute can be settled outside leg-
Faculty and Students
It will be composed of three
faculty members appointed by the
University President from a slate
of six submitted to him by the
University Senate's Committee on
Student Relations. Also on the
committee will be two students
appointed by the President and
selected from a slate by the In-
terviewing Committee (or Mem-
bership on the Council.
The old Committee on Student
Conduct. had the power of disci-
pline over cases involving students
enrolled in combined courses, or-
ganized student groups and. those
referred to it by other disciplinary
authorities. Although its decisions
were final, the President was con-
sulted on all cases where suspen-
sion or expulsion was practicable.
It also had the power to create
a subcommittee on discipline and
delegate to it the power to act.
The committee had done this,
composing the subcommittee of
three faculty who had complete
jurisdiction-over the gases brought
before it. The committee itself has
not met for 14 years.
Standards and Appeals
With the establishment of the
Committee on Standards and Con-
duct a committee has been created
with the power to both establish
standards and hear appeals.
The proposal to make the
change came out of a year's study
of the judiciary system by Joint
Judiciary Council. The study was
then submitted to the Office of
Student Affairs for evaluation.
Lewis said the change was "an
attempt to make Joint Judiciary
Council into a complete system."
He also said that careful recog-
nition of due process would be '
given to all cases that come before

Chu Examines China Family Role
By PATRICIA LEFTRIDGE,
The industrialization of parts
of China has brought changes in
the classical Chinese family struc-
ture, but these changes exist only
in large industrial cities, not in
rural areas which maintain the
traditional pattern, Solomon Chu,
Grad, said last night.
Speaking on "The Changing
Chinese Family," Chu described
Chinese society. The gentry is the
educated and privileged class. The
peasants, constituting the major-
ity, are uneducated and have little
chance for mobility. This social
structure "has remained unchang-
ed," Chu said. "Education is the
chief channel of mobility."
There are great differences be-
tween the gentry and the peasant
classes. Chu exnlained. "The gen-
man' in terms of psower, the break-
ing up of family solidarity, and
very important, "the youth move-
