Ke pel Calls

for End to Segregation)

Associated Press Education Writer
SEATTLE--The United States
must "end for all time the blight
of segregation wherever it exists
and in whatever forms and shapes
it assumes," United States Com-
missioner of Education Francis H.
Keppel said yesterday.
The commissioner spoke to the
annual convention of the Nation-
al Education Association, itself em-

gated state and local affiliates in
11 southern states.

Some delegates want the affili-

ership, which also wants deseg-

course. The NEA itself always
has been an integrated organiza-
Over and beyond desegregation,

Protestors Plan


Judge Sets Postponement'
In Local Loitering Trial
The Circuit Court trial of Quin McLoughlin, charged with
loitering in City Hall in an August demonstration protesting a weak
Fair Housing Ordinance for Ann Arbor, has been postponed to July 14.
The case, now before Judge James R. Breakey on appeal from
the Municipal Court, has been postponed several times in the past,
McLoughlin said. The case brought against McLoughlin by the City
of Ann Arbor-'is based on a dis-


Over 200 North Campus faculty,
staff and student personnel held
a rally from 5-6 p.m. yesterday,
planning boycott, procedures to
start tomorrow morning when new
University parking rules for North
Campus go into effect.
The rally produced plans to park
over 400 cars on a huge vacant
tract next to the parking lot on
the west side of Phoenix Center.
The cause of the protest and rally
was that the University is install-
ing parking lot meters, leaving
only 88 free parking places on
North Campus. "The cost of these
meters to the faculty, students and
workers using them would be over
$60 per person per year," Richard
Roberts, one of the leaders, said.
The protestors are against the
parking regulations for several
reasons. They explained that Uni-
versity officials are trying to
equate North Campus with the
Central Campus, ignoring several
The Differences
First, they noted that there is
much more space on North Cam-
pus than on Central Campus. On
the latter, the University is forced
to charge money for construction

of parking structures. This need
not be true of North Campus,
where there is space for less ex-
pensive ground-level lots, they
Second, despite the amount of
land on North Campus, there are
few parking places besides the
ones for which the University is
planning to charge a nickel an
hour, they said.
Third, there is no student traf-
fic congestion on North Campus
as there ishon Central Campus.
Most of those who use North
Campus work for the University;
there are very few students who
use North Campus full time.
Meter Plans
Those at the rally also com-
plained that they were not noti-
fied until the last minute of the
University parking meter plans.
"The University told a few offi-
cials out here and a few people
not on North Campus, but word
of the plans, which were made
four months ago, did not leak
down to us until a few weeks ago,"
Roberts said. '
Shortly after that, North Cam-,
pus personrel formed a commit-
tee to deal with the problem. A
petition of complaint against the

University move was circulated onI
North Campus and signed by 4401
people. "We informed (Vice-Presi-
dent for Business and Finance)
Wilbur K. Pierpont that we had
the petition, but he showed no in-
terest in it, so we kept it," Ted
Birdsell, North Campus research;
mathematician and a spokesman
for the group.
About 15 of the protest leaders
met with University Manager of
Service Enterprises Francis C.
Shiel, representing Vice-President
Pierpont, to protest the move last
Thursday. Shiel said that he had
no authority in the matter, and
reported the group's feelings to
Pierpont last Saturday, Roberts
Rally Plans
Vice-President Pierpont replied
that the parking plans could not
be delayed and would go ahead as
scheduled. It was then that plans
were made final for yesterday's
"The 400 cars will be parked on
the vacant lot tomorrow, Thurs-
day, and Friday and we will await
consideration from the Univer-
sity," Birdsall said at the rally.
The protest was approved by the
rally of 200 persons unanimously.

orderly conduct law which in-
cludes provisions against loitering.
The defense contends that neither
this law nor any previous decision
by the Michigan or the United
States Supreme Courts prohibits
loitering inside a building for the
purpose of demonstrating.
Lack of Precedent
To Breakey, this same lack of
precedent seems to mean that
McLoughlin's original conviction
still stands, McLoughlin says.
Much of the reason for the Cir-
cuit Court's delay has been efforts
by the defense to research higher
court decisions on loitering laws
applying to demonstrations inside
Since demonstrations outside
buildings are protected by law,
the defense is contending that the
prosecution of the city law is an
attempt to muffle free speech.
They are pressing their appeal in
order to prevent the city from us-
ing such an "inappropriate device"
to stop future demonstrations and
also in hopes of eventually-getting
a ruling by the State Supreme
Court against such applications,
McLoughlin explained.
Big Help
"Such a ruling would be a big
help to civil rights groups in other
cities in the state," he said.
He maintains that "ithe city is
attempting to broaden the loiter-
ing clause for the purpose of stop-
ping civil rights demonstrations."
McLoughlin was convicted on
the loitering charge earlier this
year in Municipal Court. He was

"one reason why we haven't done

He said our strategy "ought to

Auto Workers union, General Motors Corp. yesterday described its

Kennedy spoke publicly on the

He called Oswald a "misfit in

U' Experts
View Talks
On the eve of the United Auto
Workers bargaining sessions with
auto management, University in-
dustry and labor experts viewed
the negotiations optimistically;
but they based their opinions on
high auto profits and the determ-
ination of both sides to be amen-
able to concessions.
Prof. Harold Levinson of the
economics department said "I
doubt there will be a strike. I
think that both labor and man-
agement will be able to reach a
settlement without a work stop-
page because profits are high and
auto companies are having a good
Prof. Meyer S. Ryder of the
business school, also agreed there
would be no strike.
"Neither party wants to jeop-
ardize the successful trend in auto
sales at present," he explained.
This factor should limit both sides
from pressing unfair demands, he
went on to say.
Despite this optimistic forecast,
Prof. Shorey Peterson of the eco-
nomics department injected a note
of concern over possible neglected
ideas during the negotiations.
He predicted a "strong tendency
for the wage rates established in
the auto industry for any particu-
lar kind and grade of labor to be
extended to include other parts of
the economy."
He voiced criticism of any at-
tempt by the labor leaders to ask
for wage increases of over national
productivity levels. Governmental
guideposts have set 3.2 per cent
productivity increases as an ac-
ceptable standard,
"If profits are relevant at all,
a limit of wage increases must be
set by the profits of less profit-
able companies."
Levinson saw a definite possi-
bility of the 3.2 figure being ex-
ceeded. "Given the high profits
and the generally low rate of un-

JJC May Set Precedent in Fall
BJy Ruling on Ouff-Campus Case
"Joint Judiciary Council may set a precedent this fall if it asks
to review a case of property destruction in off-campus housing,"
Mrs. Elizabeth A. Leslie, coordinator of affiliated, associated and
off-campus housing, reported yesterday.
The case involved four men who caused severe property damage
in their rented apartment.
The case, which was pending before Joint Judic last April, is
still with the Office of Student Affairs. The occurrence last April
brought complaints from the apartment owner and neighbors of
the students. The OSA handled payment of damages by the students,
but conferred with Joint Judic over whether it should ask to make
a ruling on the case.
But Joint Judic did not ask to review the case, and adjourned
for the summer. Meanwhile, the four men decided to sublet their
apartment for the summer to several girls. "Then they again severly
damaged the apartment and left for the summer, leaving the girls
a greatly damaged place," Mrs. Leslie said.
Since Joint Judic will not meet until the fall, it can take no
further action until then, but there is a good chance that it will
take up the case when it returns, Mrs. Leslie said.
