To Clear Bill
WASHINGTON (P) - Chairman
Howard W. Smith (D-Va) bowed
to the demands of a majority of
the House Rules Committee yes-
terday and scheduled a meeting to
clear the civil rights bill for Hous
action next week.
Still apparently unsettled, how-
ever, is a dispute between House
Republicans and the Democrati
leadership over declaring a re-
cess July 3 so the Republicans can
get to the GOP national conven-
tion a week ahead of time for pre-
liminary activities.
Need Republicans
Republican votes will be need-
ed to get the civil rights bill ou
of the rules committee and Mi-
nority Leader Charles A. Halleck
(R-Ind) has reportedly made de-
livery of the vote contingent on
getting a recess from July 3 t
July 20.
After the last of a series o:
leaders' meetings yesterday, both
Halleck and Speaker John W. Mc-
Cormack (D-Mass) said the mat-
ter of the recess was still up in
the air.
McCormack is being urged by
President Lyndon B. Johnson t
keep the House in session the
week of July 6, primarily to ac
on his anti-poverty bill. His re
quest has met heavy resistance
from Democrats as well as Repub
licans, however, and there now ap
pears little likelihood that John
son will get his way.
The only clearcut result of the
day's maneuvering was Smith's
announcement that the rules com
mittee would meet next Tuesday
to consider a resolution calling fo
House acceptance of the Senate
passed bill. That would send it on
to the President for signature.

Lack of cooperation and un-
derstanding between the branches
of the administration in most
American universities has caused
many of the problems in the
American higher education sys-
tem, Prof. W. H. Cowley of Stan-
ford University said last night.
Speaking before the closing
session of the 10th annual Insti-
ministration, Cowley first pin-
pointed a number of the weak
areas in America's colleges and
universities. He then traced the
problems in these areas to ten-
sion and lack of understanding
within the respective institutions'
Carried Over
Cowley said that the trouble
originated with the organization of
earlier colleges in Italy, France
and Switzerland, whose patterns
were often carried over into the
structure of American colleges.
Citing Harvard University as an
example, Cowley showed how a
well-organized and unified ad-
ministration can contribute a great
deal to an institution of higher
Poor Organization
He contrasted the successful set-
up at Harvard with that at the
University of California at Santa
Barbara. The lack of unity with-
in its administration has been
clearly detrimental to that uni-
versity's progress, he said.
Cowley is currently writing a
book entitled "Academic Govern-
ment' which will deal with the
evolution of the American system
of higher learning and its ad-
ministrative problems.

terday. One of the authors of the
legislation, Rep. Cecil R. King
(D-Calif) moved that all present
discussions be confined to social
security retirement.
This meant dropping from the
bill being drafted, not only health
care, but also any broadening of
the existing state-federal system
of health care for the needy and
No Point
"We knew we didn't have the
votes, so there was no point in
pushing it," King told newsmen.
He said he hopes the Senate will
write in health care provisions.
The fight over what is often
called medicare spilled over into
consideration of a boost in pay-
ments for the almost 20 million
beneficiaries of the social security
retirement system -old persons,
the disabled, widows and children.
IRep. John W. Byrnes (R-Wis),
senior Republican member of the
committee, moved to approve a
six per cent increase. In an un-
usual turnabout, liberal Demo-
cratic members of the committee
opposed an increase of that much,
apparently because they feared
the tax boost it would require

Angell Urges Leadership
For Nation's Universities

. i

"Today's American university
communities should begin to truly
recognize what is one of their main
duties-assisting in the formation
of public opinion, and in the de-
termination of the values of their
society," Prof. Robert Angell of
the sociology department said yes-
Speaking before a meeting of
the Institute on College and Uni-
versity Administration, Angell
noted that "this most part of
American society should aspire to
leadership in two senses.
"First, in ideological terms, it
should set as its goal the pursuit
of excellence. This means excel-
lence in many facets of life-in-
tellectual, moral, aesthetic.
Correct Faults
"In practical terms, the univer-
sity community should seek to cor-
rect what it sees as faults in the
way America looks and acts on
life," Angell noted. "It could for
example, correct what I see as a
pair of faults shared by many
For one thing, there is an un-
healthy emphasis on trying to
find simple answers to what are
really complicated questions, An-
gell said. "There just aren't any
such answers. There isn't just one
thing we can 'do' in Viet Nam to
'win' the war. Simple answers just
don't acknowledge reality.
"These things the overwhelming
majority of educated people real-
ize," he went on. "I believe it is
their duty to try as hard as they
can to get their beliefs known to
their fellow citizens."

the emphasis of both 'material-
ism' and 'superficiality.' There is
a little of both in most of our
For example, the great empha-
sis on spectator sports and on sen-
sational content on newspapers is
a fault which educated people
recognize even if they do not al-
ways escape it, Angell said.
"Other examples are the hours
and hours of situation comedies
on TV, or simple drama such as
the 'westerns' craze a few years
ago. Some of this is good, but
many people devote a huge part,
of their lives to it," Angell ex-
"In tryingLto develop this sense
of leadership, the nation's insti-
tutes of higher education must
usually center around their lit-
erary colleges. For the literary
college is usually the one section
of a university which participates
most fully in all parts of its life-
general education, professional
training, services to the public,
research, and social criticism,"
Angell went on.
But in striving for leadership,
the literary colleges run into new
troubles, Angell explained. Many
students come to college with ad-
vanced placement, and therefore
spend a shorter time n the uni-
versity community: "At Harvard,
for example, one fourth of last
year's graduates had entered as
"A second such troublesome
problem is that many students to-
day become oriented toward pro-
fessional training well before they
graduate,"rhe said. "Thus they do
