The protest went to the heads
of more than 100 theological col-
leges a n d similar institutions
throughout thedcountry. It also
landed on the desk of every An-

and college principals that there
had been considerable inertia by
those in authority to carry out the
many recommendations made in
the last 20 years regarding min-
isterial training.
The Church of England propos-
ed reforms in training in 1944 and
again last year. The British Coun-
cil of Churches and the World
Council of Churches made sugges-
tions about fitting theologital ed-
ucation patterns to modern needs
in 1965 and 1967.
The students say these recom-
mendations have been largely ig-
nored. Only one out of four Meth-
odist colleges in Britain acted on
a Methodist reform plan.
One of the main complaints of
many students is that they feel
their training has little relation
to such issues as race, poverty, in-
justice and political turmoil.

Fulbright probably will give the
new administration's foreign-pol-
icy, officials time to find their way
around their jobs before he sum-
mons them before the committee
to give their views publicly on this
touchy proposal which was op-
posed vigorously by the Johnson
administration.
mInvolved is the Senate's resent-
ment against being denied a
chance to share in' the decision
before a chief executive dispatches
troops abroad.
This applies to all presidents
but more emphatically to Presi-
dent Johnson's initial military in-
tervention in Vietnam and his or-
dering of U.S. fighting men into
Santo Domingo.
Sponsors describe the measure
as one that would provide some
assurance that there will be' "no
more Vietnams."
The resolution, amended to ap-
ply only to future presidential ac-
tions so as not to passijudgment on
Vietnam policy, got overwhelming
committee approval in the 90th
Congress.

state-designate, already has been

Space agency budget request

CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (IP) -
The space agency's budget' re-
quest for fiscal year 1970 includes
several new programs, but major
'new decisions are being left to
the incoming administration of
Richard M. Nixon.
In presenting the budget briefing
last week, Dr. Thomas O. Paine,
acting administrator of the Na-
tional Aeronautics and S p a c e
Administration, termed it a
"holding budget."
"It does not," he said, "make
full use of the aerospace capabil-
ities that this nation has develop-
ed in government, in industry
and in universities . . . it does per-
mit a balanced program of useful
work in critical areas."
Paine said the Nixon admin-
istration will have to make early
decisions on "manned lunar ex-
ploration, on future space station

studies are completed, on an un-

Rituals are strange events,
and America has the oppor-
tunity to watch just such a
strange ritual on television this
Monday. By Law, Richard Nixon
will be inaugurated at 12 noon,
Jan. 20, 1969. Yet this Inaugura-
tion is not the only attraction,
the National Mobilization Com-
mittee to End the War in Viet-
nam decided that this would be
an opportune time to tell the
new 'President just what they
thought of the War in Vietnam.
The Inauguaration events,
which officially started yester-
day, include a Governors' Re-
ception at the Sheraton Park
Hotel this afternoon, followed
by a Reception honoring Vice
President-elect and Mrs. Agnew,
at the Smithsonian Museum,
and an Inaugural Concert at
Constitution Hall.
Today, the Mobilization plans
a rally at the Ellipse near the
White House, followed byamarch
down Pennsylvania Ave., in the
oposite direction as the official
Inaugural parade. Sunday night,
Judy Collins and Phil Ochs will
nerform at a counter inaugural

up to $400,000. 18,500 people
will sit eighteen inches off the
ground on a wooden platform
to watch the ceremony.
According to Rennie Davis,
the Mobilization will dominate
the parade route for the offical
parade. The committee has pur-
chased 100 grandstand seats for
the Inaugural parade at a cost
of $1,000. Davis, Mobilization
National Coordinator, said the
tickets were purchased on the
parade route as part of its plan-
ned "peace presence' during the
Inaugural ceremonies.
The exact plans of the Mobili-
zation are not final since they
are subject to the approval of
city officials. The Mobilization
people have stated that they do
not want violence and they be-
lieve that Washington Officials
do not want to turn the In-
auguration into another Chi-
cago.
Approximately two hundred
people from -Ann Arbor have
gone to Washington. They left
on Friday in rent-a-cars for the
500-mile journey. On many a
