Soviets Propose
UN Peace Force
Security Council Powers To Provide
Funds, Keep Veto over Deployment
UNITED NATIONS ()-The Soviet Union handed the United
States and Britain yesterday a proposal for creating a permanent
UN Peace Force, and both Western nations agreed to give it con-
siderable study.
Nikolai T. Fedorenko, the chief UN Soviet delegate, invited U.S.
Ambassador Adlai E. Stevenson and British Ambassador Sir Patrick

Committee Passes
War on Poverty Plan
WASHINGTON ('-President Lyndon B. Johnson's War on
Poverty program moved a step closer to final enactment yesterday
as it won 13-2 approval of the Senate Labor Committee.
The committee completed its action on the bill at a closed ses-
sion, after making minor changes in it.
But Sen. Pat McNamara (D-Mich), chief sponsor, said that even
though the administration is pressing hard for enactment of the

Plan Letter
Asking Talks 1
The North Campus parking pro-
testors plan to issue another open
letter today, asking the adminis-
tration for a period of moratorium
on the North Campus parking reg-
ulations which went into effect
on July 1.
The statement will also request
that during the moratorium the
administration hold meetings with
the protestors to work out a settle-
Last week, the protestors issued
an open letterhmaking essentially
the same request. There was no
reply from the administration.
New Location
The protest, which went into its
fifth day yesterday, may move to
a new location today. Yesterday,
over 100 protestors' cars parked
on the lawn next to the Phoenix
Project; today they may use a
newly-resurfaced parking lot. The
lot was to be half free and half
paid-permit parking under the
new plan, but Monday the Univer-
sity moved a parking sign onthe
lot, adding about 40 free parking
The protestors want more than
this however-an entire re-nego-
tiation of the paring plans. But
the changed, open lot may be
enough for them to move their
protest there, to get off the lawn
and await further University
Francis C. Shiel, manager of
Service Enterprises on North Cam-
pus and in charge of the parking
situation there, indicated that he
expected the protestors to move
their demonstration to the new lot.
Asked whether any action might
be taken today if cars are still
parked on the Phoenix lawn and
the new lot open, Shiel replied
that he was uncertain.
The main complaint of the pro-
testors is not specifically the new
parking regulations; rather, they
claim that the University did not
inform them soon enough of a
move that was planned long in
The protestors do not neces-
sarily want a radical change in
the plans. A few days ago one of
them commented- that "we just
want to sit down and discuss the
entire situation before anything is
made final."
900 Spaces
The new University North Cam-
pus parking plan, which went into
effect this month, consisted of
transforming the parking places
on North Campus, formerly all
free, into predominantly paid
parking. Of about 900 formerly
free spaces, about 100 are now
free. Approximately 150 have
parking meters costing two and
one-half cents an hour; about 650
require paid permits that cost
users $25 per year. The plan is
similar to the one which has been
in effect on Central Campus since

Dean to the Soviet mission to
receive a memorandum outlining
the plan.
Under it the five veto powers
on the Security Council would
provide funds but no troops, and
smaller Communist countries
would be specifically eligible to
contribute manpower.
Under Security Council
It was the first time the Soviet
Union agreed to share the costs
for maintaining a peace force-
but it made clear that the force
must be under control of the Se-
curity Council. In the Council the
U.S., Russia, Britain, ]France or
Nationalist China can, with a
single vote, override a Council
majority decision.
Stevenson told reporters after
an hour-long session with Fedor-
enko that at first glance the
memorandum contained nothing
new over what had been previously
announced in Toyko. The Japanese
foreign office received it Monday.
He added that the document is
long and "will require consider-
able study."
Dean said his views were the
same as those expressed by Stev-
Maintaining Peace
Later Fedorenko payed a half
hour call on UN Secretary-Gen-
eral U Thant and left with Thant
a memorandum from the Soviet
Union "on certain measures for
strengthening the effectiveness of
the UN in the maintenance of
international peace and security."
Fedorenko told reporters it was
"a positive, constructive or, if you
prefer, creative approach to the
problem, a government position of
great importance." He declined to
give details.
In Washington, members of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee took a cautious wait-and-
see attitude. Sen. J. W. Fulbright
(D-Ark), chairman of the group,
said that the U.S. should consider
the proposal with an open mind
to determine whether it reflects a
changed attitude or simply a pro-
paganda move.
Syria, Israel
Clash, Request
UN Support
BEIRUT ()-Syria placed its
border forces on hair-trigger alert
yesterday with orders to hit back
mercilessly in the event of re-
newel hostilities along the Syrian-
Israeli armistice line.
The Syrians and Israelis also
moved fast to win United Nations
support as gun clashes on the
shores of the Sea of Galilee and
the surrounding hills threatened
to build up into a major Middle
East crisis.
The area was quiet yesterday,
but guns blazed over the border
between Israel and Jordan. A
Jordan military spokesman said
Israeli troops fired on a Jordan
patrol at Adasiyah, North Jordan.
The patrol returned the fire, he
said, and added that the Israelis
reported to UN truce supervisors
that one Israeli soldier was killed
and another wounded.
A Syrian Defense Ministry
spokesman said all measures had
been taken to ensure "merciless
retaliation and to repel any fresh
Israel aggression."


SWage War
Over GOP
P lat form
By The Associated Press
Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller yes-
terday demanded a GOP platform
rejecting "extremism" and clear-
ly affirming the constitutionality
of the new civil rights law.
"Certainly the GOP cannot ex-
pect to win if it seeks to serve
the narrow interests of a minor-
ity within a minority."
The platform battle may be car-,
ried to the floor of the national
convention, starting Monday, if the
platform committee now meeting
refuses-as expected-to do no
more than pledge the party to
strong and immediate implemen-
tation of the civil rights law.
Yet an Associated Press poll
gives the GOP's leading contend-
er and the brunt of Rockefeller's
remarks - Arizona Sen. Barry
Goldwater - 711 delegate votes
(with only 655 needed to win the
nomination). His main challenger,
Pennsylvania Gov. William Scran-
ton, has only 151.
The platform committee is al-
ready heavily constituted by Gold-
waterites, and victory for the sen-
ator would put him in a strong
position to demand a platform he
Scranton's hope is to pick up
the uncommitted and the waver-
ing and wean away a sizable por-
tion of the 273 delegates who say
they favorhGoldwater but aren't
pledged to him.
In Chicago, Scranton accused
Goldwater's forces of "smears" and
"every conceivable kind of pres-
sure and threat" to keep the Re-
publican presidential nomination
from Scranton.
"They are trying to create a
political steamroller unparalleled
for its toughness, its callousness,
its total disregard for the opinion
of rank and file Republicans."
Scranton contended that "every
survey taken" shows that he is
preferred by Republicans over
Yet Goldwater's campaign di-
rector said in Washington that he
doesn't think Scranton is "making
any progress in chipping away del-
egates" from the Arizonan's col-

ure, it won't come before the
Senate until Congress returns fol-
lowing its recess for next week's
Republican national convention.
By Proxy
Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater
presented by proxy a minor
amendment-accepted unanimous-
ly-and voted against the bill, as
did a close supporter of his, Sen.
John G. Tower (R-Tex).
Goldwater announced he will
file minority views when the anti-
poverty program is reported to
the Senate, about July 21.
The committee adopted several
amendments, including one by
Goldwater clarifying conditions
under which parochial or religious
school facilities can be used in
poverty programs. But it made no
significant changes in the broad
scope of the program drafted by
presidential aide Sargent Shriver.
Up to 7 Million
Shriver has predicted the war
on poverty will reach 600,000 per-
sons within the first year and
up to 7 million families through
various phases of its community
action programs.
Major provisions of the pro-
gram include:
-Unemployed youth programs,
estimated at $412.5 million and
including a job corps to provide
education, work experience and vo-
cational training at conservation
camps and job training centers;
a work training program so young-
sters can work and continue their
high school education and a work-
study program providing part-time
jobs for needy college students.
-Community action programs,
to cost about $340 million, which
grant the government authority
to pay up to 90 per cent for com-
munitywide action in health, wel-
fare, job training, vocational re-
habilitation, housing and basic ed-
-Combating rural poverty-re-
quiring $50 million-including au-
thority for grants of up to $1500
for low-income rural families and
loans of up to $2500 to finance
non-farm enterprises and to es-
tablish housing, sanitation, educa-
tion and child day-care programs
for migrant farm workers.
-Work experience programs,
estimated to cost $150 million and
including experimental and dem-
onstration projects to encourage
state programs for unemployed
fathers and others in need.
Several of the measures in the
poverty package previously have
passed the Senate as separate
measures. These include the job
corps, aid for migrant workers and
the Volunteers for America pro-
gram, similar to the National
Service Corps measure which
would call for up to 5000 Peace
Corps-styled volunteers to work
in mental health projects with
migratory workers and Indians.

THIS ARTIST'S CONCEPTION of the new Dentistry Bldg. shows one of the "top priority" items on
the University's proposed 1965-66 capital building program. The plan, which must be approved by the
Regents before going to the Legislature, seeks $15-$20 million for building and remodeling. An aca-
demic facility and science building are also included in this program. They would be used for the
residential college.

New Cabinet
To Take Reins'
Of Congo State
Tshombe, former president of Ka-
tanga Province, declared last night
he had put together a new Congo-
lese government of 12 "new and
dynamic men" to reconcile the
Congo's warring political factions.
The leaders of Katanga's futile
attempt at secession said he was
taking over four ministries him-
self - premier, foreign minister,
minister of information and min-
ister of planning and economic co-
ordination. None of the other men
on the list has served as a minis-
ter before.
Tshombe said the new govern-
ment's main task would be to
pacify the Congo. He stated he
would rely on persuasion and con-
ciliation rather than force.
Tshombe was named premier-
designate Monday by President
Joseph Kasavubu only 10 days
after the Katangan returned from
more than a year of voluntary
exile in Spain. Outgoing Premier
Cyrille Adoula resigned June 30,

day, but has been conducting gov-
ernment business until a new ad-
ministration takes over.

they were willing to pay the rates,
he added.
City Aid
The expansion and parking proj-
ects were announced yesterday at
a press conference called by May-
or Cecil Creal. Although the proj-
ect has private financing, the city
is seeking to aid in the adjacent
property acquisition.
State Street merchants have
reportedly endorsed the idea. They
are expected to create rear en-
trance facades and a pedestrian
promenade to attract "parking"
pedestrians to their stores.
The structure; providing 32.000
square feet of parking space, will
be divided into underground, sur-
face and elevated levels.
Total Inventory
A University official commend-
ed the project for "adding to the
total inventory of parking facili-
ties in the area." The University
also owns a parking structure on
Thayer St., but it is barred to
Creal commended the use of'
"private enterprise" to aid a pub-
lic problem. "It has been the poli-
cy of my office to assist efforts
aimed at alleviating the parking

situation in the State St. area,"
he said.
As a private building, the struc-.
ture would not be policed by the
city. However, an attendant will1
probably supervise the parking and
collect fees, Stegman said.

Would Erect
Science Units
$15-20 Million Bid
Must Go to Regents,
Lansing for Approval
University planners are paying
special attention to an academic
classroom building and a science
structure which are part of a ten-
tative $15-20 million construction
program for 1965-66.
Once the Regents have adopted
the program, it must proceed
through the governor's office and
the Legislature for final passage
next spring. The Legislature set
the previous capital budget at $5.7
million last May-$7 million less
than requested.
Administration sources revealed
yesterday that the two buildings
-only a minor part of the record
capital outlay plan being consider-
ed-will be used to educate the
1200 students of the experimental
residential college.
The new unit's doors would open
in the fall of 1968.
The bulk of the capital pro-
gram, over $10 million above this
year's level, will go to three oth-
er buildings.
Over $7 Million
They are the Medical Science
Bldg., Unit II, the Dentistry
Bldg. and the architecture and
design college structure. These
projects will require over $7 mil-
lion, sources reported.
The medical facilities will re-
tain "top priority" in the program
since the Legislature has already
appropriated over $1 million for
each. The allotments become e.
fective this year (1964-65).
A third major project will be
the $5.2 million architecture and
design college structure for North
Campus. Planning and initial con-
struction money will be sought.
Highly Tentative
The proposed capital outlay pro-
gram remains highly tentative,
subject to the Regents approval
later this month, Vice-President
for Business and Finance Wilbur
Pierpont said last night. He de-
clined further comment.
But the less important financial
structures envisioned in the pro-
gram-the academic and science
buildings - have occupied much
thought recently, a spokesman re-
vealed. This is due to their experi-
mental function as the academic
home of the residential college.
Residential units are planned
separately, since they are self-
The literary college structure
would be located on the near-
North Campus site proposed for
the residential college. Its exact.
nature will be shaped by what the
residential planners decide in
terms of curriculum for the 1,-
200-student self-contained college,
offering a liberal arts curriculum.
Its exact location will be on
the golf course site between Ful-
ler Rd. and the Huron River.
The science building may pose
a dilemma for the residential
planners, however, an adminis-
trative spokesman reported. He
said that its possible location on
the central campus would force
residential school students to leave

expected savings "without any ad-

He said a policy of buying only
what is needed - at the lowest
sound price-and cutting costs
through various efficiencies yield-

he had anticipated a year ago.
