EMU Council Urges
Faculty Review Role
Asks for Improved Channels
For Communication, Decisions
The Faculty Council of Eastern Michigan University has recom-
mended that steps be taken to insure channels of faculty communica-
tion with the State Board of Education and faculty action in the
"self-study" ordered by the North Central Association of Colleges and
Secondary Schools recently.
The NCA report on Eastern, released in June at Gov. George
Romney's insistence, was requested by the Board because they heard
of law faculty morale and administrative problems at EMU. Subsequent
to receiving the report, the Board
dismissed Eastern President Eu-
y gene B. Elliott, effective June, 1964.

The New Orleans judges handed

Outside Consultants
Prof. Edward Potter, vice-chair-
man of the Faculty Council, said
last night that the Board has sug-
gested EMU might utilize "outside
consultants" in their self-study.
The faculty report is intended "to
put the council on record as op-
posing the Board's idea," Prof. Pot-
ter explained.
The council plans to set up six
faculty committees to study and
find solutions for the problems
plaguing Eastern. The committees
will be on administrative problems,
faculty affairs, instructional prob-
lems, special projects, Board in
Control of Athletics, and student
and public relations.
The NCA report had cited a
"lack of finesse" in administra-
tive, student and faculty relations
as an important cause of low mor-
ale at EMU.
Communication Procedure
The Faculty Council also sug-
gested a procedure for communi-
cation between faculty, Elliott, and
the Board.
Council recommendations, the
report suggests, should be submit-
ted to Elliott for approval, and
then to the Board. If Elliott does
not approve recommendations,
they should then be returned to
the council, after which they would
be submitted directly to the Board.
The NCA report on Eastern had
mentioned the lack of communica-
tion between faculty and adminis-
tration as a problem at Eastern.
The faculty report further states,
"We believe the administration of
Eastern has been remiss in many
ways, but we do not believe the
NCA report provides sufficien'
ground for wholesale dismissal of
Intensify Problems
"We believe that sudden and
drastic changes in the adminis-
tration at this time would only
intensify the problems and inter-
fere with the effective functioning
of the university during the period
of transition to governance by a
new board"
In explaining this part of the"
report, Prof. Potter said, "the pub-
lic Press has made the council
aware that there are possibilities
for further removals beyond that
of President Elliott."
Prof. Potter also commented
that the Board had suggested the
possibility of bringing in outside
consultants to help choose Ellliott's
The report stated, "We believe
that no groups outside the univer-
sity should participate in this
process. We believe that the work
of screening and recommending
candidates for the university presi-
dency must be done by the fac-
ulty because the faculty is the best
possible judge of the necessary
qualifications for the office and of
the competence of the candidates."
One of the points the NCA made
in their January study was that
faculty believed they did not have
enough say in the major university
The council set up six faculty
committees to study and find so-
lutions for the problems plaguing
Eastern. The committees will be on
administrative problems, faculty
affairs, instructional problems,
special projects, Board in Control
of Athletics, and student and pub-
lic relations.
The NCA report had cited a
"lack of finesse" as a cause of lowI
morale at EMU.

France Offers No Support
WASHINGTON (P)-Secretary of State Dean Rusk will hold a
new round of exploratory talks with Premier Nikita Khrushchev and
other high officials in Russia next week, but without much support/
from France.
President John F. Kennedy indicated at a news conference
that the United States has offered France more atomic help if she
would join in the new test ban accord."'But we have received no
esponse from the French govern-
e trnent, other than the remarks of
len. (Charles) de Gaulle at his

The State Department announc-
ed that the 12-man United States
delegation to the Monday after-
noon signing of the test-ban treaty
in Moscow will leave here by mili-
tary jet transport tonight and
arrive at the Soviet capital Satur-
day afternoon.
After the ceremonial signing,
Rusk will stay on for three or
four days as the guest of Foreign
Minister Andrei Gromyko, the de-
partment said.
Rusk is slated to see Khrush-
chev in an effort to find out
more about the Kremlin proposals
for the non-aggression pact, an
exchange of observers to guard
against surprise attack and other
possible areas of agreement.
Some of these subjects would
require agreement among the
Western allies, of whom France is
an important one. Britain's For-
eign Secretary, Lord Home, will be
in Moscow for at least part of
Rusk's stay.
U.S. Offer
Administration sources last
night refused to give out details
of what Kennedy may have of-
fered France, but the president
had no encouragement from Paris
to report in his public remarks.
Kennedy noted that as part of
the United States-British Nassau
agreement last December on shar-
ing Polaris missiles, France, too,
had been offered the nuclear,
rockets. But France turned this
down because of the condition
that they assign their atomic force
to NATO, he noted.
He said the problem is not just
that the United States Atomic En-
ergy Act's prohibition against giv-
ing nuclear secrets to non-atomic
powers-because the United States
now recognizes France as an
atomic power.
"The problem really goes to the
organization of the defense of the
West, and what role France sees
for herself, and sees for us,"

Fear Rightists
There is also a fear that a Gold-

the conservative elements of the
party and draw the far right-
especially the John Birch Society
-into the Michigan GOP.
However, the anti-Goldwater
forces lack a rallying point. Rom-

Despite GOP leadership denials,

widespread in the state. A Free

men shows a two-one preference
for the Arizona senator.
The Michigan delegation to the

ly voted 19-3 for Donald Lukens,

The NAACP board believes ne-

The board considers the newly

WASHINGTON (A) - President
John F. Kennedy said yesterday
that "yes, we will" continue nu-
clear 'weapons testing under-
At the same time he predicted
ratification of a new treaty ban-
ning tests in space, in the atmos-
phere and under water.
In the realm of the gravest do-
mestic crisis of the day, Kennedy
said he assumes that his handling
of the civil rights issue has cost
him political support and pres-
tige. But he said he expects his
administration to "continue to fol-
low the same course it has fol-
lowed in the past."
Nuclear Tests
The President talked about nu-
clear tests and civil rights at a
news conference centering largely
around those two topics.
Kennedy started off with an ap-'
peal to parents and others t
urge children to return to school
in September and stay in school
in order to combat the drop-out
Kennedy said he is asking all
American parents ."to urge their
children to go back to school:in

leaders to work toward the same
He said he will provide $250,000
out of the Presidential Emergency
Fund for guidance counselors for
the month of August to "see if we
can get some of these boys and
girls" to go back to school in
When civil rights came up in
the questioning, one of the first
was whether he would seek to end
miscegenation laws-the statutes
in some states forbidding inter-
racia' marriage.
Court Relief
Kennedy replied an individual
prosecuted under these laws would
have relief in the courts.
"There are legal remedies in
this field now," the President said.
When pressed as to whether the
justice department could initiate
suits, the President pleaded ignor-
ance as he was not a lawyer but
added that he doubted that the
justice department could enter
such a case.
Then the session with reporters
took off into nuclear testing and
civil rights and a spattering of
other matters.
The first question was whether
the President was concerned about
ratification of the American-
British-Soviet treaty b'anning all
'tests but underground ones, since
some Republicans and Democrats-
in the Senate have taken a "wait-
and-see" attitude.
Wait and See
Kennedy said there is nothing
wrong with waiting or seeing, and:
"My judgment is when the tes-
timony is all in that this treaty
will be ratified."
The treaty is to be formally
signed next Monday.
There was a question as to
whether the United States might
give nuclear weapons, or know-
how, to France.
Kennedy said the United States
has offered assistance to France
on a number 6f occasions for de-
fense purposes.
He said the government has
been in touch with the French on
this and cooperation could con-
tinueuin connection with the test
ban. But hie said as yet 1"we see no
response" from the French.
