To Net ie
Ca ngeover
A joint legislative committee is
now studying 'methods of imple-
menting the new constitutior
which goes into effect January 1.
Three subcommittees are study-
ing problems related to imple-
menting the document.
One is studying elections plans
another judicial plans and the
third is concerned with executive
and administrative problems.
Legislative Enactments
Some of the constitution's pro-
visions become effective as they
are implemented by legislative
enactments, Prof. William Pierce
director of the Legislative Re-
search Center and consultant tc
the committee, said.
Hence the legislature must en-
act laws which will establish and
provide for the machinery. The
new State Court of Appeals is a
good example.
The Constitution has estab-
lished a Court of Appeals but mat-
ters such as where it will sit and
how it will operate are left to the
legislature to decide.,
Send Bills
About 50 bills and proposals will
be sent before the legislature by
the joint committee in order to ac-
tivate the constitution, Prof.
Pierce said.
One of the bills that will have
to go to the special legislative ses-
sion .for approval will be yester-
dayr'' decision of the judicial sub-
cormmittee setting up the Court of
Appeals election districts. '
Wayne County will elect three
members, Oakland County one
member and the rest of the state
the remaining five members. The
subcommittee also decided that
the nine judges should be paid an
annual salary of $23,000. They will
be first elected in the fall of 1964
to take office in 1965.
County Lines
The election districts, according
to the new constitution, are to be
established using county lines
with as nearly equal populations
as possible.
The other election districts be-
sides Wayne and Oakland would
each elect one judge to the appel-
late bench apiece.
They would be: I

Prof. William Pierce, director of
the Legislative Research Center at
the University and committee con-
sultant, noted that the body is
set up by a "self-executing provi-
sion in respect to its powers."
S The powers will have to be im-
plemented by the Legislature.

. out of a job?

Local Power
He added that the wide sweeping
power of the commission "does
not rule out power of a local na-
ture," since there has yet to be a
formal statement by the attorney
general on the matter.
There has been some objection
to Kelley's cont ntion of the com-
mission's power. A number of leg-
islators have disagreed with the
attorney general's statement and
others have wondered whether or
not it would hold up in court.
Presently, two Detroit city coun-
cilmen are awaiting a reply from
Kelley to 'a formal request for
clarification of the problem.
Legal Power
They wish to learn the legal pow-
er of the city to pass 'civil rights
ordinances. The answer to this
question will affect civil rights
action in every local unit in the
Prof. Pierce viewed the estab-
lishment of the commission as a
great advance, since it provides a
public forum which will "void
mobs in the streets."
He believes that the commission
will go a long way in cutting down
on demonstrations, pickets and
the like. "Anything you do to get
people to talk over problems is of
great help," he said.
Prof. Pierce added that with
the establishment of the agency
"people will not have to resort to
unusual methods."
Under the new constitution, any
party to a case may appeal the
decision of the commission to the
circuit court.
Calls Policyr
Fulbright (D-Ark?~ suggested yes-
terday that the key to the foreign
policy favorediby Sen. Barry Gold-
water (R-Ariz) "is a bold,' cour-
ageous' and 'determined' policy of
Fulbright, in a satiric speech,
told the Senate that it must be
purely coincidental that some of
Goldwater's views are similar to
those of the rulers of Communist
"The senator from Arizona is
opposed to coexistence," Ful-
bright, chairman of the foreign
relations committee, said. "So are'
the Chinese Communists.
Don't Misinterpret
"I am confident that no fair-
minded American will misinterpret
the interesting parallel between
the senator's views on these mat-
ters and those of the Chinese

Fulbright spoke. There was no re-

Fulbright gibed also at the
avowed conservatism of Gold-
water, regarded as a principal
contender for next year's Presi-
dential nomination although he
says he is seeking only re-election
to the Senate.
Higher Office
"It is rumored," Fulbright said,
"that the senator from Arizona
may be prevailed upon to seek
higher office. Should that prove
to be the case, he will undoubtedly
spell out a dynamic program of
national action under some stir-
ring title like 'The Fundamentals
of Illiberalism' or 'Let's Get the
Government out of the Business
of Government'.".
Fulbright said Goldwater has
made it entirely clear that he op-
poses coexistence between the
Communist countries and the free

lIay Abolish
Ste Office
One of the joint subcommittees
studying ways to implement the
new constitution has considered
abolishing Highway Commissioner
John Mackie's job.
The commissioner's job isto be
superceded by a state highway
Although a change is also oc-
curring in the state board of edu-
cation, the job of Supt. of Public
InstructionLynn Bartlett does not
face the same fate, Prof. William
Pierce of the Law School and con-
sultant to the joint legislative
committee said.
Maintain Office
He noted that under the new
constitution all persons in elective
offices will maintain them.
However, Prof. Pierce said that
Mackie's position is one cheated by
statute and therefore may be abol-
ished before the new constitution
becomes effective on January 1.
After that date, his position will
be protected along with the other
elective posts by a provision of
the new constitution.
Establish Post
Bartlett on the other hand holds
a position which was established
under the first Michigan Consti-
tution of 1835. Although the edu-
cation posts are no longer elective
under the new constitution they
will probably serve out their terms.
Mackie, a Democrat, has made
a number of political enemies in
his powerful post as Highway Com-
missioner. He viewed the possible
plans to remove him as "a rather
blatant political move."
However, Mackie indicated he
will not be eased out of public life.
He said he would run for another
post if his job is abolished.

U.S. Bans
Of Arms
United States announced yester-
day a ban on, sales of all military
equipment to South Africa by the
end of the year.
But it opposed punitive action
by the Security Council aimed at
forcing South Africa to abandon
its white supremacy policies.
United States Ambassador Adlai
E. Stevenson made the announce-
ment to the 11-nation council as
it considered requests by African
nations that it impose severe dip-
lomatic and economic penalties
against Prime Minister Hendrik
Verwoerd's Nationalist govern-
"We cannot accept the propo-
sition that the only alternative to
Apartheid is bloodshed," Steven-
son said.
Stevenson spoke after Alex
Quaison-Sackey, delegate from
Ghana, requested the council to
consider expulsion of South Africa
from the United Nations. He made
no concrete proposal, and none so
drastic is expected.
Stevenson declared the United

bargo action to indicate the deep
concern which his government
feels at the failure of South Africa

'Bid Fails
For Center
The University will not get a
hoped for $50 million National
Aeronuatics and Space Adminis-
tration space electronics research
center, Sen., Clinton P. Anderson
(D-NM) indicated yesterday.
The site of the center, original-
ly designated for Boston, has been
in doubt since several space re-
search firms in the area protested
against the project last February.
The firms feared the new facility
would draw business and skilled
manpower from their businesses.
The Senate Space Committee
Thursday reversed an earlier de-
cision to shelve the center and not
appropriate $5 million to start it,
but threw the site into question
by asking more data from NASA.
The reversal is seen as a victory
for Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-
Mass) in whose state the center
was originally to be located.
First Preference
Anderson, explaining why the
center would' not be located here,
said that Boston probably was
NASA's first preference, followed
by California and then the Chi-
cago area.
He noted that California, in
addition to Boston, had its advo-

The total number of fellow-
ships and scholarships admin-
istered by the graduate school
increased to 1,377 last year
from the previous year's total
of 878, a report by Ralph A.
Sawyer, dean of the graduate
school, indicates.
The report, released yester-
day, is prepared annually and
presented to University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher for his
study and information.
According to the report the
total funds available for fel-
lowships a n d scholarships
amounted to $2.64 million. The
reported total for last year was
$1.8 million. Small increases
occurred in many of the cate-
gories and substantial increases
in special and endowed post-

and in the National Defense
