Calls for Free Education

Extension 1niitbppn



WASHINGTON 04?)- Secretary'
of Labor W. Willard Wirtz said
yesterday every youth in the na-
tion should be given "all the edu-
cation free which he needs and
can use."~
Proposing vastly expanded edu-
cation as vital to preventing mas-
sive unemployment in the nation's
increasingly technological econ-
omy, Wirtz said:
"Our principle ought to be that
in one way or another, every single
boy and girl stay in school until
that boy or girl is ready-until
he or she is equipped with the
skills which are required for the
jobs in today's automated ocon-
This would include both college
and vocational schools, Wirtz said.

Amend Poverty Bill,
See Passage Near
WASHINGTON (P)-President Lyndon 'B. Johnson's "War on
Poverty" program was given a "state's rights" amendment yesterday
that may win Southern support for the measure.
And by late afternoon, the Senate agreed to limit debate on
the bill itself to four hours, and to hold debate on each amendment
to one hour, reinforcing hopes of Senate leaders for passage tomorrow.
Then the Senate adjourned overnight.
The state's, rights feature would allow a governor of a state to
veto federal plans to locate a youth camp in his state. Sen. Pat
McNamara (D-Mich), floor manager of the bill, said he would accept
the amendment with "some re-

George A. Smathers (D-Fla) and
passed by voice vote.
-The compromise and debate-

prime Republican foe of the meas-

That opening ttack came from

had joined Republican presiden-

' A key feature of the controver-
sial bill is authority to establish
a job corps to provide education,

The program envisions the en-

is estimated at $190 million.

labor secretary has been "the dif-
ficulty of getting across to the
country what's happening as far
as thecuneducated younger work-
er is concerned."
Hesaid some 35 million young-
sters will enter the labor fore in
the next 10 years and 'that, if
present trends continue, more than
8 million will be high school drop-
"That'll be economic suicide,"
Wirtz said, adding:
"As nearly as I can figure
things out right now, our situa-
tion is that we are stackingr up
about a quarter of a million'young
boys and girls . . . every year ...
on what can only be called a
human slag heap.
"They're coming out of high
school without . . . the training
for the jobs whichare available."
Wirtz said automation and tech-
nological improvement are essen-
tial to the future of the economy,
but that the nation must realize
that automation "is taking all of
the unskilled work out of . the
economy, and we're going to have
to start educating and training
people for skilled jobs."
He said there is also a great
need for retraining older persons
who lose their jobs to automation.
"I think this country is perfectly
willing to accept the proposition
that a man who loses his job to
a machine is entitled to be trained
for another job," he said.
On the educational needs of the
nation's youth, Wirtz said:
Two Years
"I would add at least two more
years to the present free educa-
tion which goes up through high
school . . . there will probably
have to be more vocational edu-
cation to meet the demands for
situations in which a great many
of these boys and girls don't go
on to college.
"We've got to investigate the
question of whether this business
of starting (school) at the age of
six . . . is right or not. My present,
impression is that especially in,
the areas of the underprivileged in
this country, there are more people
committed to unemployment be-,
tween the ages of three and six
than at any other period," he said.
Requests Full
Military Aids
WASHINGTON A P) - Secretary
of Defense Robert S. McNamara
said yesterday the United States'
will have to reassess its defense
policy and expand its own forces
if the full $1 billion asked for
foreign military assistance is not.
"We have come to a critical de-
cision point," he said.
A cut in the military aid funds
will mean that strength built up
in allied nations around the rim
of the Communist world will grad-
ually melt away," the secretary
And any attempt to offset this
loss by increases in U.S. forces "is
bound to cost far more for, the1
same amount of combat capabil-
ity," he added.
McNamara testified before the
Senate Appropriations Committee
on the administration's $3.5 billion
foreign aid program of which mili-
tary assistance is a part.

The 15,000 students educated by
University academicians a w a y
from the Ann Arbor campus
should be as well-taught as the
30,000 students instructed here, a
new faculty report concludes.
The report has been drawn up
by a faculty subcommittee study-
ing the extension credit course
program. This sends University
teachers to Dearborn, Flint and
a host of other cities in the state
to offer courses for credit.
The extension program is main-
tained to provide "educational ad-
vantages for residents of the state
who are not in a position to pursue
programs of study in residence at
the University," according to a
mandate of the Regents.
The bulk of the off-campus stu-
dent population is secondary
school teachers seeking credit on
a part time basis. Jobs preclude
their coming to Ann Arbor.
The faculty committee report,
prepared under the chairmanship
of Prof. Richard Wellman of the
Law School, stresses the need to
reorganize this program to help
give the teacher better instruction.
It makes three basic recom-
mendations to assure standardiza-
tion of on-campus and off-campus
-The off-campus or extension
course work should be placed un-
der the department's jurisdiction
and considered as part of that de-
partment's nomral teaching obli-
This would hold a department
chairman responsibile for organiz-
ing highly-structured programs of
credit for Dearborn in the same
way that he must shift funds and
assignments in Ann Arbor. To
help the chairman, the commit-
tee report would provide him with
funds directly.
-Course content and quality
should continue to be the respon-
sibility of departments and the
extension service jointly. The re-
port observes that the content
and teaching methods of a given
course may vary from locale to"
locale. However, the report stresses
a more comprehensively planned
program for the state.
- Extension service officials, in
a self-survey last November, re-
quested departments take over
more of the planning and running
of the off-campus programs.
-An associate dean of the grad-
uate school would be appointed to
oversee the credit course program.

committee might be created to

Of Imbalance!
Endorses Elimination
Of Area School Idea
ALBANY, N.Y. Vm) - The New
York State Education Depart-
ment's pioneer order aimed at
eliminating racial imbalance from
public schools was upheld yester-
day by an appeals court.-
The five-member court endorsed
the department's stand that the
traditional neighboorhood school
concept can be subordinated,
where necessary, to the over-all
goal of achieving racial balance.
The Appellate Division, 3rd De-
partment, upheld specifically last
year's order of Education Com-
missioner James E. Allen Jr. di-
recting the Malverne School Dis-
trict, on Long Island, to reorganize
its elementary grades in a man-
ner that would bring racial bal-
ance to a school now 75 per cent
In what could set the pattern
for disposition of the many 'other
racial imbalance and "busing"
cases now pending in various
courts, the Appellate Division said:
"The court cannot substitute
some other judgment for the judg-
ment of the commissioner that
correction of racial imbalance is
an education aid to a minority
group in attaining the skills and
levels of education which others
have had for generations."
Today's finding reversed a lower
court decision that had voided
Allen's order. The case is expected
to go now to the Court of Ap-
peals, the state's highest tribunal.

of which involve transporting

Wagner coupled his plea for
reason with a promise of swift
justice for "hoodlums, rowdies and
troublemakers." He pledged step-
ped-up efforts to improve slum
conditions, add Negroes to the
police force and review cases of
alleged police brutality.
Even as the mayor spoke on
television and radio, helmeted po-
lice patroled Harlem and a pre-
dominantly Negro district of
Brooklyn, where the riots have
left one dead, more than 100 in-
jured and dozens of stores smash-
ed and looted.
Suspend Protests
Earlier, about 40 Brooklyn Ne-
gro leaders had promised to sus-
pend public demonstrations for
the duration of the crisis, and to
man sound trucks to cruise the
streets appealing to people to stay
home at night.;

said. "I can't exaggerate what is
at stake here."
Wagner said he had spoken
yesterday with President Lyndon
B. Johnson, who had assured him
that his assignment of the FBI to
investigate any violations of fed-
eral law in the New York riots
was "designed solely to assist,
support and supplement what we
were already doing."
Several Harlem Negro leaders
said Communist influence was
only minor, if it existed at all.
The Rev. Richard A. Hildebrand,
president of the New York City
branch of the NAACP, called it
"regrettable" that the Communist
question "has come into the pic-
ture to becloud the truth."
Wagner conceded that the kill-
ing of a 15-year-old Negro boy,
James Powell, by white police Lt.
Thomas Gilligan last Thursday-
the incident which triggered the
violence - had "raised questions
about the responsibility and be-
havior" of the police.

NEW YORK (R)-Police fired several warning shots last night to
disperse several hundred Negroes, mostly teen-agers, who gathered
on the street in Brooklyn's riot-torn Bedford-Stuyvesant section.
The incident occurred less than three hours after Mayor Robert
F. Wagner appealed to. the city's millions to "give me your hands"
in stemming the bloody racial riots of the last four days.
Moments earlier and only blocks away, helmeted police had dis-
persed a crowd that gathered around a loud speaker-equipped car

To Integrate
Injunction To Await
Supreme Court Ruling
For Final Opinion
Special To The Daily
ATLANTA-A three judge fed-
eral court has ordered the inte-
gration of a local motel and
cafeteria in the first case brought
to trial under the nation's new
civil rights law.
However, the orders, handed
down yesterday, will not take ef-
fect until Aug. 11. The court's
opinion stated that the rulings
can only be considered temporary
injunctions, paving the way for
final United States Supreme Court
decisions on the constitutionality
of the law.
Attorneys for the motel said
late yesterday that they have al-
ready filed an appeal with the
Supreme Court.
The first case began when three
Negroes attempted to obtain serv-
ice at Lester Maddox's Pickrick
Cafeteria shortly after the civil
rights law was signed. Maddox,
long an outspoken segregationist
in the Atlanta area, turned the
Negroes away.
The Negroes filed suit the next
day, and the Justice Department
quickly intervened in their behalf
under a provision in the public
accommodations section of the
new law.
In the court hearings, Maddox
did not deny his cafeteria .segre-
gation policy. He based his case
on the constitutionality of the
civil rights law.
Morton Rolleston, president of
the Heart of Atlanta Motel, Inc.,
filed the second suit, charging
that the public accommodations
section is unconstitutional.
Both Maddox and Rolleston
said that forcing them to serve
Negroes would infringe on' their
private property rights and place
them in an "involuntary condi-
tion of servitude." Rolleston also
claimed that the civil rights act
exceeded Congress' authority over
interstate commerce and that his
business is local-not interstate-
in nature.
Maddox, usually vehement in
his denunciations of the Supreme
Court and the civil rights act, was
mild in his reaction to the ruling.
"We believe justice will prevail
in the end," he said. "We expect
a favorable verdict in Washing-
Asked to comment on his line
of action should he lose the ap-
peal, Maddox would say only that
he would stand by his previous
"promise." He has vowed several
times never to serve Negroes in
his cafeteria.
Rolleston said only that his
motel would "comply with (Su-
preme) Court orders."

Rusk Asks Cuba Embargo;*
Exiles Lose in Skirmish
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary of State Dean Rusk urged the
Latin American Republics yesterday to slap sanctions on Cuba and
warned Castro that governments of the Americas "will no longer
tolerate its efforts to export revolution."
Rusk asked the inter-American conference of foreign ministers
to take three measures aimed at halting Cuba's alleged subversive
activity in the hemisphere:
First, the imposition of sanctions.
Second, a warning to the Castro regime that if it persists in
subversion, "the full weight of the regional security system will
be applied."
TThird, a call to "our own gov-
ernments and those of other free-
world countries to take appropri-
ate steps in the field of trade with
a I~ijf " M 0,a A Cuba.'"

Writing Music: forArtor




Jerry H. Bilik of the music
school said last night that many
modern composers are torn be-
tween commercialism and true
art. Speaking on "Music and Madi-
son Avenue," he said, "Most com-
posers cannot sit down and write
music to earn a living. As a result
they must go into educational in-
stitutions or into commercial
He said that musicians are
trained in an art and their ideal
role is to search for perfection in
this art. But he also noted that
composers in the commercial area
must sell to an audience so that
they can secure an income an

be pleasing in the sense that itj
fits with the idea portrayed. It
should fit with the image project-
ed, as in cigarette commercials. As
well as the above, the commercial
tune must be technically adapt-
"There is a need for creative
energy to bridge the gap between
popular m u s i c and classical
scores," Bilik said. "George Ger-
.shwyn was one successful com-
poser in this field. Leonard Bern-
stein is succeeding today, while
catching criticism from the clas-
sical fans who feel that his music
is too popular in style, and like-
wise from the popular fans who

beat are the most important fac-
tors. This style is easily identifi-
able with physical action and
physical aspects are more impor-
tant than the search for art at
this age."
For the more sopristicated teen-
ager and young adult market,
there is the folk song, he pointed
out. "It is still primitive but it
has more complexity in the chord
arrangements and more subtlty.
Most rock and roll can be played
with four chords."
"An interesting fact," he added,
"is that few classical record re-
leases make money in America.
Every company which releases
classical scores has a large num-
ber of rock and roll releases also.
