Mao Holds Ideological Advantage

University planning. Both agencies
have used Johnson, Johnson &
Roy, a company specializing in city
planning, for detail studies.
An employe of the firm, for ex-
ample, may have worked both ono
the CBD "Guide to Action" and'
the Central Campus plan and thus
integrate the two, Leary noted.
He added that the guide may
have stimulated the Central Cam-
pus plan by adding another "giv-
en" to consider. The CBD study
prescribes a framework-especial-
ly- concerning streets-in which
University, planners must operate.
University Intensions
Similarly, McKevitt pointed out,
the Central Campus plan describes
University intbnsions which city
planners may work in or attempt
to modify. The city planning com-t
mission has seen the Central Cam-
pus plan.
University planners also eek
out other community reaction by
conferring With the University
Senate committee on planning and
the executive 'ommittees of the
schools and colleges involved.
However, frictions do occur with

WASHINGTON-In advance of
a meeting which could be the big-
gest event in Cold War history, So-
viet Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev'
is hurting badly. Ideologically
speaking, though professing to
yearn for world Communist unity,
Mao Tze-tung has s k i n n e d
Khrushchev alive and nailed his
hide to the barn door.
It is obvious now this is more
than an ideological fuss between
Moscow and Peking. It has the
look of naked struggle for suprem-
acy over the world Communist
movement. The ideology quarrel
seems just window dressing.
Mao's offensive against Khrush-
chev-the more painful to the
Russian leader because he has no
adequate way of fighting back-
has impelled the Kremlin to take
the unusual step of rebuking Pe-
king's publicity.
Good Reason
Khrushchev had good reason to
do so. Peking's truculence has in-
fected much of the Communist
world and has even generated sul-
len rebellion against Soviet eco-
nomic domination among Euro-
pean satellites like Romania and
Czechoslovakia. Such infections
can be dangerously contagious.
It will be a fascinating show
when-and if-the Red Chinese
and Russians sit down together as
scheduled Friday to talk about
their dispute. The prospects for
peace grow dimmer every day.
This is a power struggle, just as
Stalin had his struggle with Trot-
sky in the 1920's. Then, too, there
was an ideological cover for the
battle. But the real fight was
over who would run the world
Communist revolution.
Seeks Power
Peking is not looking for peace.
Mao has named to head his dele-
gation to Moscow a man who is
fully capable of irritating Khrush-
chev. The shrewd, able and un-
compromising Chinese party sec-
retary-general, Teng IHsaio-peng,
is noted for arrogance in debate.
He is just the man to rub Khrush-
chev the wrong way.
What does Mao want? He talks
about Communist camp peace be-
cause he does not want the blame
for pulling it apart. But clearly he
regards Khrushchev as incapable
of heading the world revolution.
Clearly he regards himself as the
only rightful inheritor of Commu-
nist world leadership, the only
man who'has created a body of
theory on his own, with stature.
enough to rank beside Lenin and
Stalin in the Red pantheon. To
Mao's adherents, Khrushchev is
an upstart, a man who as Mao is

reported to believe, is a "rich peas-
ant riding an H-bomb."
World Conclave
Mao wants to force Khrushchev
into a meeting of Communist lead-
ers from all 89 world parties. Pe-
king seems cocksure it can con-
vince the others that Khrushchev
undermines, subverts and menaces
the world revolutionary move-
ment: that for the good of the
movement, Khrushchev must be
Khrushchev's followers do not
relish such a showdown. When it
comes~ to which party violates
Marxism-Leninism, the Soviet first
secretary hasn't a leg to stand on.
Chinese theoreticians have cut him
to pieces.
Mao's supporters cite chapter
and verse of Red scriptures to
prove that Khrushchev is an arch-
deviationist. Now the issue is join-
ed. Peking is pushing its advan-
tage, and this is a fateful moment
for the Communist world.
Resent Policies
Communist leaders in Latin
America, Africa and Asia are rest-
less, resentful of Khrushchev poli-
cies. They seem to look more and
more to Peking for guidance to-
ward the fastest road to revolu-
tionary power.
Peking's party considers itself
the real voice of world revolution
and of unremitting enmity to the
United States. By implication, it
accuses Khrushchev of thinking
first of Russian national interests,
and second of world revolution.
The Chinese accuse Khrushchev of
many sins.
In advance of the Moscow meet-
ing, Mao's party jolted the Rus-
sians with a 30,000-word letter
in language so strong that the
Russians refused to print it. This
letter detailed several dozen spe-
cific Khrushchev sins. "Certain
persons," said Peking-meaning
Khrushchev's camp - have com-
mitted crimes such as:
-They tried to create new theo-
ry, to avoid facing up to "the im-
Downgrade 'Struggle'
-They downgrade the "libera-
tion struggle" in backward coun-
tries, betray the proletariat in cap-
italistic countries, and art like
"social democrats." That is about
the worst thing one Communist
can call another;
-They exaggerate the idea of
peaceful competition, failing to
understand that Lenin considered
war just "politics by other means."
They consider revolutions possible
without war;
,-Khrushchev's camp spreads
fear that a spark from a revolu-
tionary war can cause world con-
flict. This, says Peking, is absurd,
because it hasn't happened despite

OXFORD ROAD-The University's new 400-women dormitory is a recent subject of controversy be-
tween the University and area residents. The neighbors, complained that the residence hall conflicted
with local patterns, but the University said it conformed with land use in the area and would not
disrupt it.

ed to anchor off a green belt
stretching from the Arboretum on
the north.
Different Approach
However, many single-family
dwelling owners south of Hill St.
reacted differently. They asserted
that the residence hall was linked
to their area on the south and
clashed with it.
The residents protested to city
council, but the council said It,
could do nothing as the Univer-
sity was an agency of the state
and was not bound by zoning
The University likes to conform
with existing land use patterns
wherever possible. The sale of the
old botanical gardens to develop-
ers conforming to area zoning spe-
cifications is an example of this.
Final Judgment
But the University, as a state
institutionof internationalescope,
must decider what its needs are
and reserves the right to make
final judgments.
Fln1g e O foArd Rd. con-

bers, Prof. John Arthos of the
English department, a leading pro-
tester of the University's Oxford
Rd. decision.
At its first meeting in late May,
the committee decided to seek "an
existing 10-year growth plan" of
the University and raised pointed
questions about Central Campus
plans and the recent University
purchase of the Argus Camera
plant on the west side.
No Repetition
"We don't want to see a repe-,
tition of the Oxford Rd. incident.
Here University and city relations
suffered and this fine residential
neighborhood suffered because of
the University's construction of a
complex of residences. We want to
see that this sort of thing does not
happen again," committee chair-
man Jacques LesStrang declared.
As one of its four major objec-
tives, the committee included, "To
work with the University in city-
University relations in such a way
that the best interests of Ann Ar-
bor are considered in plans of the
Universitywhich, in any way, al-
ters or affects the physical ap-
pearance of the city."
However, several city council-
men have voiced concern over the
"strong statement" of the commit-

First Ward Democratic Coun-
cilman John L. Teachout indicated
that he thought committee state-
ments should first clear council
before being released to the press.
He said he was concerned with
possible damage to city-University
Inferring a possible clash with
the council's city-University rela-
tions committee and the planning
commission; Second Ward Republi-
can Councilmen John Dowson and
William E. Bandemer said that the
committee's precise duties should
have been listed by council.
The city's close planning rela-
tionship with the University is
strengthened by close ties in other
areas. The city-University rela-
tions committee of council consid-
ers other matters aside from plan-
ning although services, stemming
from city and University planning
decisions, such as water and sew-
age, are discussed as are projects
of joint concern, such as, the Ful-
ler Rd. engineering study.

Another area is research, espe-

Enicksen Sees Automation Techniques
As Replacements for Lecture Halls

Automation will turn college lec-
ture halls into discussion forums,
Stanford C. Ericksen, director of
the University Center for Research
on Learning and Teaching, said
He said teaching machines will
allow students to learn more on
their own initiative.
The professor thereby will gain
"some degree of freedom from his
traditional role of telling things to
students and move closer to the
more rewarding relationship of
discussing things with his stu-.
dents," he said.
Ericksen spoke at the opening
session of the 25th Alumni Uni-
versity, the traditional Commence-
ment Week program.j

For too many years, he pointed
