s"s VictoryFree Lots for te'akI'Prokc


The North Campus "park-in"
protestors are victorious.
The University capitulated to
their three principal demands
First, it gave the protestors the
one-month moratorium on park-
irig regulations sought since they
parked 200 cars on a lawn three
weeks ago. Thel regulations had
converted 800 free parking spaces
into metered and stickered park-
Second, the University agreed
that the moratorium period would
be used as a time to study the
parking needs and demands of
North Campus personnel. This too

had been a consistent demand of
the protestors.
And third, the University agreed
to build two new free lots for
North Campus personnel, closer
to the Phoenix Project than the
less than 100 free spaces are now.
Only the most optimistic of the
protestors had expected the Uni-
versity to acquiesce to all of their
demands so completely.
Until August
The one-month moratorium will
extend until Aug. 26. "By then,
we will know just what arrange-
ments are appropriate," Francis
G. Shiel, manager of Service En-
terprises and in immediate charge

of the North Campus parking sit-
uation, explained last night.
He said that one of the new
lots will be near the Food Service
Building now under construction
on North Campus. It is located
near the Phoenix Project.
The other free lot will be con-
structed near the Fluids Engineer-
ings Bldg., west of the Phoenix
New Contact
A spokesman for the protestors,
commenting on ! the moratorium
settlement, said that "we hope
that the new arrangements will
be beneficial to all involved."
An underlying complaint of the
protestors has been the lack of

communication with the adminis-
tration. The protestors pointed
out that they received "only a
month's notice" on the parking
regulations, though the date was
set several months in advance.
The University has said that
the regulations were approved in
April by the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
and the proceedings published in
the Senate minutes later that
month. This, it was believed, pro-
vided sufficient notice.
The parking regulations were
an extension of the parking plan
concept which was initiated on
Central Campus in 1955. The Uni-

versity installed parking
and "paid staff parking"
on Central Campus.


There was a protest at that
time also, but without success.
Several groups of workers, in-
furiated by the then-new regula-
tions, staged sit-down protests on
the job. But the regulations on
Central Campus stayed intact.
The parking plans of the Uni-
versity include all three campuses
-the Central Campus, the North
Campus, and the Athletic Campus.
They are part of a long-range ex-
pansion planning program which
h a s tentatively planned new
buildings, new walks, streets and

parking facilities a decade into
the future.
Before the North Campus seg-
ment of the over-all parking plan
went into effect July 1, 900 park-
ing places there had been free.
This had been the case since the
establishment of North Campus
in 1952.
Under the new plans, 650 of
the places were made "paid staff
parking" requiring permits at a
cost of $25 yearly. Parking meters,
costing over two cents an hour,
were installed in another 150.
One-hundred remained free.
Until yesterday, the protestors
flooded the lawn with cars every

In a mass meeting last night, University Employe Local 1583

Immediate plans for the drive are to sign as many employes as
possible, form I committees and subcommittees to deal with specific
problems and grievances and start union educational programs with
the aid of a' larger state organization.

NEW YORK-Law and viol-

racial front yesterday as federal
agencies movel to enforce the na-
tion's new civil rights law while
rioting continued in Brooklyn.
Civil rights moved a h e a d

white men with obstructing a

anti-poverty bill last night, in a major victory for President

The bill now goes to the House.
Passage came after the adoption of two "states rights"
amendments geared to make the measure more palatable for
Southern legislators.

De Gaulle Minimnizes
I .S. Rolei West
U e in
PARIS ()-President Charles de Gaulle yesterday challenged
American leadership in the Western world and at the same time called
for withdrawal of all foreign elements from Viet Nam.
He urged an international conference to settle woes in what
used to be French Indochina with guarantees by four nations-Russia,
Red China, the United States and France-with past or present in-
volvements in the long fighting. He did not mention Britain, but said
the parley could be held in the framework of the 1954 Geneva con-
ference of which Britain is a co-chairman.
De Gaulle spoke at a formal news conference, one of two he holds
each year. He declared that there seemed to be no possibility of either
'side winning a military victory in
1 , South Viet Nam and that the
solution must come from the con-
ference table.
CfaHe said some people think the
war could be carried tohNorth
Americans have the resources to do

States officials brushed aside as
wholly unacceptable de Gaulle's
new call for an international con-
ference, including the United
States, Russia and Red China, to
make peace in Southeast Asia.
Rejecting de Gaulle's argument
that a military solution in South
Viet Nam is impossible, officials
said a conference is beyond seri-
ous} U.S. consideration until at
least a new military balance is
created in South Viet Nam.
De Gaulle's news conference at-
tack produced no surprise here.
U.S. policy calls for a strong
Europe, including Britain, to be
organized in some kind of partner-
ship with the United States.

"But it is difficult to admit
that they would want to take on
the enormous danger of a gener-
alized conflict," he said.
Recalling that a 14-nation con-
ference in Geneva in 1954 had
reached an agreement intended to
bring peace to Indochina after
France lost it, de Gaulle said this
accord had never been respected.
Now, he declared, it is time to go
back to the conference table.
He said the same type of con-
ference, with roughly the same
countries represented, could again
be held to decide on the means
of assuring peace for Laos, Cam-
bodia and North and South Viet
Nam. He said that in advance it
would be agreed that this would
lead to their neutrality.
"Another route that could lead
Southeast Asia to peace cannot be
seen," he said. He added that

WASHINGTON () President

to discuss ways of keeping civil
rights from becoming a presiden-

between GOP presidential nomi-

the civil rights issue "knocked

James Farmer, national direc-

John Lewis, chairman of the
