voted 81 to 0 yesterday to give
President John F. Kennedy the
emergency military funds he ask-
ed to help meet Moscow's threat
to world peace.
The unanimous vote authoriz-
ing $958,570,000 for a quick de-
livery of new missiles, ships and
planes followed a statement by
Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-Ga)
that the Western world must arm
itself to the point where "if some
mad man insists upon war, we
can destroy him."
A Senate Appropriations Sub-
committee was reported mean-
while to have boosted the regular
defense appropriations bill to ap-
proximately $47 billion. Members
said the group added about $500
billion more than Kennedy sought,
mainly for an additional wing of
long range B-52 bombers.
Extra Funds
The extra funds were in addi-

authorization Kennedy asked this
week as a result of the mounting

France Boycotts UN Council
As Bizerte Discussions Start
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (P)-France boycotted yesterday the
United Nations Security Council debate on the Bizerte crisis.
It called for French-Tunisian talks entirely outside the UN.
The latest French snub of the UN came on the heels of a gov-
ernment declaration in Paris making clear that France would not be
bound by any council decision on Bizerte.
The 11-nation council took note of a letter from Ambassador
Armand Berard declaring that France would not participate in the
debate, then went ahead with its

"I don't think we should give
any impression" that the United
States would limit itself to a con-
ventional weapons defense.
First With Bombs
"We once said we wouldn't be
the first to use the atomic bomb,"
Russell said, "and that gives the
Russians an advantage."
Russell said- the new buildup
will "give us a nix" of weapons
and added:
"I've never advocated laying
aside any weapon we might need
to defend the security of the
United States."
Congress man
Predicts Early,
Orbital Flight
WASHINGTON (P) - Chairman
Overton Brooks (D-La) of the
House Space Committee said yes-
terday that the first attempt to
put an American in orbit can be
made as early as November, a
month or two ahead of earlier
"We have waited long enough
and provided enough money to do
the job and should get ahead with
sending a man around the earth,"
he told a reporter.
He said there was no need to try
another up-and-back suborbital
shot similar to those made by as-
tronauts Alan Shepard and Virgil
The Baton Rouge, La., news-
paper quoted Brooks as saying in
a telephone interview this coun-
try plans to put a spaceman in
orbit in about 90 days.
A spokesman for the National
Aeronautics and Space Adminis-
tration declined to confirm or
deny Brooks' estimates. He said
dates and types of launchings are
frequently altered as circumstances
change, and added that the
agency does not make public its
schedules in advance.
Brooks said an attempt to orbit
the moon could be made by 1966,
to be followed in 1968 or 1969 with
a landing on the moon by a man-
ned space craft.

greater effort by this country's.
European allies, but Sen. Everett

"Let's show Khrushchev we
mean business by passing this by
a unanimous vote."
By way of rounding out the
unity theme, it was announced
after the 81-0 vote that all 19
absentee senators were in favor of
the bill.

Next the Senate called up Ken-i
nedy's companion bill giving him
broad authority to call up to 250,-

extend for an extra year the serv-
ice of men already in the armed
Criticism of what they called
foot dragging by the allies came
from Sens. Allen J. Ellender (D-
La), John Stennis (D-Miss), and
Ellender, a long-time critic of
foreign aid, said the joint defense
contributions of England, France,
and even West Germany are "a
sad story."
Regents Alter
Driving Rules
For Students
University driving regulations
were changed yesterday to permit
all seniors "in good standing" to
operate a car.
Driving permits had previously
been limited to students over 21
years old.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis told the
Regents the new ruling (which in-
volved a change in the Regents
By-laws) would not mean any
appreciable increase in the num-
ber of cars on campus.
Most students become 21 years
old sometime during their senior
year, he explained. The only ef-
fect of the ruling will be to permit
them to have a car a few months
earlier in the year.
At the same meeting, Wilbur K.
Pierpont, vice-president for busi-
ness and finance, announced ac-
nuisition nf a narking structure

For 5 Years
Pierpont's Program
Seeks $10 Million
For Remodeling
The Regents took a long look
at capital outlay needs yesterday
and approved a program calling
for $106.1 million in state funds
for new construction.
Adopting a program drawn up
by Vice-President for Business
and Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont,
the Regents also asked for $10.6
million for remodeling and addi-
tions to present structures.
At the top of the list was the
Physics-Astronomy Bldg. already
under construction. The Legisla-
ture has granted $4.3 million for
the structure during the last two
years. The Regents will ask for
the rest of the $7 million allocat-
ed the project next year.
Music School
Second in the appeal for money
to construct 26 new projects is
the School of Music slated for
North Campus. The University
will seek $2.7 million next year
and an additional $1.7-milliorn I
The long-range plan will be fil-
ed with the Budget Division of
the state's Department of Admin-
istration. It is stlllpreliminary and
is subject to later review and
modification by the Regents.
Other new construction called
for next year includes a Fluids
Engineering Bldg. Unit II of
Medical Science Bldg., Dental
Bldg., a School of Education on
the North Campus, a new Archi-
tecture and Design school also
on North Campus, Mathematics
and Computing Center, Engineer-
ing Laboratory. The total is $12.7
Medical Center
The Regents also approved a
$23.8 million program for new
construction and remodeling in
the Medical Center. The Univer-
sity is seeking a Children's Hos-
pital, Maintenanceand Storage
Bldg. and a Cancer, Geriatrics
and Chronic Illness Bldg.
The total asked for new edu-
cational facilities compares with a
$114.2 million estimated in a five-
year plan drawn up last spring.
The requests are sub'stantially the
The main difference in the
sums is the $2.8 million already
given to the Physics-Astronomy
Bldg. and a drop of $1.9 million
in the estimated cost of the Den-
tal Bldg. Anticipated federal
grants lower the University's cost
for the building, Pierpont said.
The University will wait a year
before requesting funds for Unit
I of a Science Bldg., a Nuclear
Energy Laboratory, Plant Service
Bldg., Chemistry Bldg., Engineer-
ing Laboratory, library and office
building, University elementary
and high school. Most of these
will be located on North Campus.
