October Action
On Pollution
The exact role the University

Pollution Research Facility to be
established at the University has
not yet been determined.
Prof. David C. Chandler of the
zoology department and director
of the- Great Lakes Institute term-
ed the meeting of representatives
from the Big Ten universities and
the University of Chicago in Ann
Arbor on May 29 an organization-
al one at which no definite deci-
sions about the extent or manner
of interaction among the schools
were determined.
He said various subcommittees
were established to study the sit-
uation and to choose what the
most efficient method of utilizing
the cooperative efforts of the uni-
versities would be. The subcommit-
tees will hold a joint meeting in
October. Until then Prof. Chand-
ler indicated no concrete action on
the project will be taken.
A special committee selected by
the Committee on Institutional
Cooperation served as an advisory
group to the May meeting. Admin-
istrative Dean Robert L. Williams

have been located elsewhere if the

Goldwater YRs
Attend Meeting

The legislation introduced by
the Legislative Audit Commission
drops only the last of the Regents
regulations on individuals quali-
fied to call themselves residents
of Michigan.
This regulation makes "full-time
members of the teaching staff,
teaching fellows whose appoint-
ments require at least three con-
tact hours of teaching each week,
and their dependents eligible to
register as residents."
With the exception of this
clause the definition is word for
word that of the University's.
Decided Differences
Sen: Elmer R. Porter (R-Bliss-
field) said the commission found
"decided differences in the detini-
tion of a nonresident student at
state supported colleges arid uni-
versities. He claimed the net in-
come of the schools would be in-
creased $200,000 to $259,000 a year
if the most rigid definitions now
in use were applied throughout
the state.
The resolution would take effect
next fall for all new students but
would not apply to those now en-
rolled. It is not a law but a sug-
gestion to each individual college's

new constitution now places the

According to a survey issued;
with the resolution, 18,392 non-:
resident students were enrolled in
Michigan's state-supported insti-
tutions last fall.

The resolution introduced by
Sens. Garland Lane (D-Flint),
Raymond Dzendzel (D-Detroit),
Elmer Porter (R-Blissfield), and
Lloyd Stephens (R-Scottville) sup-
ports "the trend toward increas-
ing enrollments at the smaller
state institutions of higher edu-
cation, including the junior and
community colleges."
Rep. Carroll C. Newton (R-Del
ton) introduced a similar bill re-
questing the enrollment to be lim
ited to 27,000 earlier in the year
but the resolution was never re-
ported out of committee. Newton
said he would like to see Michi-

He used the controversy over
Michigan State University's re-
quest for a heating plant capable
of taking care of 45,000 students
as an example of expansionism

Newton said the Hous was un-
willing to project that far into

fore, Lne said, should be an in-

inished at home and abroad.
Assistant Secretary of Defense
Arthur Sylvester denied a report
that the United States is prepar-
ing to reduce its overseas military
deployment. and cut the size of
the Army, Navy and Air Force,.
The report said that the De-
fense Department was planning
troop reductions in South Korea,
swifter junking of aging B-47
bombers and a reduction in the
purchase of fissionable materials
for nuclear weapons.
Hoped-for reductions in the
huge annual military budget, Syl-
vester said, will come from im-
proved efficiency, shucking un-
necessary frills in equipment and
arms, and possibly from trimming
the rear echelon forces support-
ing the combat units.
He suggested that the report
of a 60,000 man slash in arms
strength as one of several drastic1
moves in prospect apparently was
confused with developments grow-
ing out of a House committee's ac-
tions last week.

Creal Notes
Housing Vote
Mayor Cecil O. Creal told the
city council last Monday night
that it will have to consider the
possibility of taking the proposed
housing ordinance to the people
for an advisory vote.
Paul H. Johnson, Third Ward,
has recently presented petitions
with approximately 1000 signa-
tures. The petitions call on council
to have an advisory vote before
it takes final action on the ordi-
Creal said at a closed meeting
Monday night that council may
have to increase the number of
units in a multiple dwelling that
the ordinance would cover. The
present ordinance calls for five,
because the rooming house owners
are "petrified" about their income.
Future Development
He went on to say that he
thought the ordinance might bet-
ter apply to only future develop-
ments; f i n a n c i a 1 institutions
should not be included.
The mayor continued saying
that a better solution would be for
the state to take some type of
action that would cover all com-
munities. He also stated that he
would not veto any ordinance
passed by the council, although
he might vote against it.

LeMar Miller, chairman of
AAFHA - CORE, stated, "T h e
council has made it necessary for
demonstrations to continue." He
pointed out that resistance to
equal treatment "is reflected in
the inaction of council" and in
Mayor Creal's statement that
Ann Arbor "should be the last city
in the world where we should have

Questions Methods
Miller accused the council of
using "under the table" methods
of settling the issue. As evidence
Miller pointed out that Creal was
reported as saying, "The wishes
of the people must be strongly
considered. If there are 300 people
out there you act accordingly."
"The mayor was referring to
problems of zoning. If the mayor
considers the wishes of the people
on zoning issues, why can't the
demands of people on fair housing
be considered," Miller said.
Miller also pointed out, "The

NATO Policy
Of de Gaulle
Million Germans ear
President Risk Cities
To Protect Continent
FRANKFURT, Germany (R) -
President John F. Kennedy called
yesterday for renewed effort to
expand and preserve the Atlantic
Alliance and pledged the risk of
American cities to nuclear holo-
caust in the defense of Europe.
In a major policy speech in St.
Paul's Church in this Main
River city, the American chief of
state flung a direct challenge to
the policies of French President
Charles de Gaulle.
He urged a massive new effort
to preserve and expand Atlantic
unity and warned that doubt and
decision could tumble the Atlantic
Alliance to ruin. De Gaulle long
has put the Alliance second to the
interests of France.
It was another day of high per-
sonal triumph in Germany for the
American President as a crowd
estimated by a German official at
nearly a. million turned out to see
him on his drive to Frankfurt
after a visit to a military base at
He delivered the main speech
of his tour in the historic church,
where he called on the NATO
allies to fulfill "a great new mis-
sion" leading the world to peace
and freedom.
"The United States will risk its
cities to defend yours because we
need your freedom to protect
ours," he declared.
He did not mention de Gaulle
by name anywhere in his speech
or in remarks elsewhere, but his
meaning was plain to all who
heard his words beamed all over
Western Europe by radio net-
"Those who would doubt our
pledge or deny this indivisibility-
those who would separate Europe
from America or split one ally
from another-would only give aid'
and comfort to the men who make
themselves our adversaries and
welcome any new Western disar-
This amounted to a direct clash
with de Gaulle, who has expressed
doubt that the United States
would risk nuclear destruction for
the sake of European security,
Aside from expressing doubts
about the President's proposed
multi-nation NATO nuclear force,
de Gaulle has recently taken other
military action designed to give
France greater military autonomy.
Last week, he pulled French
ships out of NATO North Atlantic
and Mediterranean commands.
Kennedy laid down his concept
of the goals of the West: peace
and freedom for all men, for all
time, in a world of abundance and
justice. He made plain how he
believes this could best be done.
"The first task of the Atlantic
community is to assure the com-
mon defense," he said. "That de-
fense was and still is indivisible."
There was no immediate re-
sponse from Paris, where de
Gaulle attended a meeting of his

Herbert Describes 'Change of Pace',

"Musical comedy is a pleasant change of' pace for me," com-
mented Prof. Ralph Herbert, Metropolitan Opera baritone, University
operadirector and voice teacher.
Prof. Herbert will sing the role of Emile de Becque in the Uni-
versity of Michigan Players production of "South Pacific" opening
tonight at 8:00 p.m. in Lydia Mendolssohn Theatre.
Born and educated in Vienna, Prof. Herbert has been a member
of the professional opera world for over 25 years. He has long
played lead roles on Broadway and has been a frequent guest at the
Metropolitan Opera in New York, staging Strauss' "Rosenkavalier"
and Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde" there last season as well as
singing Beckmesser in "Der Meistersinger" and Faninal in "Der

Prof. Herbert's stage French charm is replaced by genuine Viennese'
charm as his traditional "wienerblut" love of life and energy appears.
"I have traveled to New York frequently this past year to the
Metropolitan Opera," he explained, "and, of course, I have also
been teaching here at the University."
During the past year, he also directed Puccini's "Gianni Schiac-
