Meier Analyzes
Research Parks
Adjacency to a major research-oriented university or hos-
pital constitutes one of the most important elements leading
to the success of "research park" developments Prof. Richard
L. Meier of the conservation department and the Mental Health
Research Institute said in a recent speech at Harvard Univer-
Speaking on "The Organization of Technological Innova-
tion in Urban Environments" to a conference on "The City
and History," Prof. Meier cited the availability of extensive
library reference materials, bookstores, technical personnel,
consultants and other research materials as prime advantages
of university areas that can be utilized industrial research.
Prof. Meier also cited access to cultural and, natural ameni-
sional class suburban environments, exits onto metropolitan
sional class suburban environments, exists onto metropolitan
expressways, and the availability of cheap general purpose
structures as helpful prerequisites to the success of attracting
research enterprises into an area.
Notes Cultural Values
He noted that good public schools and opportunities for
a cultural life help attract highly educated personnel.
Further, he said, "the style of life affected by engineers and
scientists is highly significant.
"It is quite compatible with lawyers, doctors, teachers and
managers," he added in explaining his recommendation of pro-
fessional class suburbs for such people.
Inexpensive general purpose structures will help the develop-
ment of laboratory ideas and expanded research since the
transition from idea to product "very often requires an inter-
mediate stage that is carried out under conditions of capital
scarcity, and therefore utilizes old factories, store fronts, or
lofts which can be rented cheaply."
Draw Upon Pool
Proximity to large capital-intensive installations is desir-
able since, "a large number of skilled disciplined workers are
to be found in such areas. This pool can be drawn upon to take
advantage of the most productive opportunities that are to be
exploited on a moderate scale."
Prof. Meier noted that most such parks serve medium or
middle sized industry.

Bizerte Dispute May Go
To UN General Assembly
UNITED NATIONS (A) - Asian and African diplomats expressed
confidence yesterday they can obtain necessary support for an
emergency session of the United Nations General Assembly to deal
with the French-Tunisian dispute.
Sponsors of the move already have 32 signatures on a letter to
Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold requesting the session.
This left them 18 short of the 50 required, but they were sure

In Excess of Kennedy Requests
WASHINGTON (M)-The Senate Appropriations Committee yes-

penny of the $3 5 billion he asked for the new defense alert and then
boosted the increase to $4.5 billion.
The extra $1 billion-earmarked for bombers, missiles and other
things-raised the defense budget for the fiscal year that started July
1 to $47 billion. It's the biggest peacetime military bill in United
States history.
The total is over $4 billion more than the House voted June 28

Tunisia Seeks
New Offensive
Of Diplomats
TUNIS (P)-Tunisia yesterday
launched a diplomatic offensive
on four continents to muster sup-
port in its campaign to force
France from the city of Bizerte
and its big naval base nearby.
Envoys and ministers fanned
out from Tunis to Moscow, Wash-
ington, Asia, Latin America and

They carried a plea from Pres-
ident Habib Bourguiba's govern-

Foreign Secretary Sadok Mo-

servers felt would bring hithert(
pro-Western Tunisia closer to the
Soviet bloc.
Rally Colonies
The task of rallying former
French African colonies to the
side of this onetime French pro-
tectorate was given to Informa-
tion Minister Mohamed Masmou
di, former ambassador to Paris.
Thousands of French settlers
are preparing to leave Tunisia in
the wake of the Bizerte fighting.
Few Frenchmen here believe re-

Youth Corps,
GI Bills Pass
WASHINGTON () - The Sen-
ate Labor Committee voted yester-
day for a 150,000-man Youth Con-
servation Corps and for a cold
war GI education bill but neither
vote is likely to please President
John F. Kennedy.
The Youth Corps bill approved
by the committee would set up a
corps 25 times larger than the one
recommended by the President.
The GI bill was actively opposed
by the administration leaders.
The President's opposition to the
bills was based on economy, not
principle. In fact, Kennedy voted
for both bills two years ago when
he was a senator. The bills were
passed by the Senate then but
died in the House.
The bills now go to the floor of
the Senate.

To Hold Firm
On Aid Plans,
WASHINGTON (A) - Adminis-
tration leaders took a no-compro-
mise stand yesterday on President
John F. Kennedy's five-year for-
eign aid program.
"We will accept no compromise
at this time," said' Rep. Thomas E.
Morgan (D-Pa), chairman of the
House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Some legislators including Sen.
John Sparkman (D-Ala), have
said the administration may have
to settle in the end for a three-
year program.
The House committee gave its
formal approval to the five-year
plan in a 27-4 vote endorsing a
preliminary action of last week.
The committee cut $407 million
from Kennedy's current year re-
quest for $4.8 billion in foreign aid
funds but approved his five-year
$8.8 billion development loan plan.
Morgan and Sen. J. William Ful-
bright (D-Ark), chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, accompanied Democratic
congressional leaders to their'
weekly White House breakfast
session with President Kennedy.
Sen. Mike Mansfield of Mon-
tana, the Senate Democratic lead-
er, said Kennedy told the Con-
gressional leaders he regards the
five-year loan program, which
would be financed by treasury bor-
rowings, as "vital."

ed States and Nationalist China
reportedly were agreed yesterday
on general principles to be adopt-
ed at the United Nations next
month in opposing Communist
China's bid for representation in
the world body.
But differences in tactics were
still under discussion following
two meetings between President
John F. Kennedy and Nationalist
China's Vice-President and Prime
Minister Chen Cheng.

Discuss Outer Mongolia
Besides discussing Red China,
Kennedy and Chen discussed Out-
er Mongolia.
Chen told newsmen later that
his country will use every power it
has under the United Nations
charter to block the, entry of
Communist Outer Mongolia into
the UN.
As a permanent member of the
Security Council, Nationalist China
has a veto.
He spoke after meeting for 904
minutes with President Kennedy.
May Retain Membership
After that session, the 63-year-
old Chen said that he felt the out-
look is good for Nationalist China
to retain its own membership in
the General Assembly and seat on
the Security Council
He also said that he and Ken-

nedy agreed on the question of
admitting Outer Mongolia to the
UN. Chen would not elaborate on
the nature of this agreement but,
through an interpreter, he said:
"We discussed principles only.
We did not have time to go into
the tactics of this matter."
Seek 'Quick'
Market Entry
LONDON (P) - With the wel-
come mat down and rising public
support at home, Britain prepared
yesterday to seek quick admittance
to the European Common Market.
Edward Heath, the Lord Privy'
Seal and special representative of
the foreign office, returned from
a meeting in Paris with the for-
eign ministers of the six common
market nations and said, "All were
very enthusiastic and there were
no signs of obstacles."
Heath said it might be possible
to start negotiations in six to
eight weeks.

State Plans

Beadle Anticipates
Expense Guidelines
For Higher Education
A Detroit efficiency firm will
try to determine the cost of learn-
ing at three state-supported uni-
versities, a special legislative com-
mittee decided yesterday.
A joint House -Senate interim
committee on higher education
hired the A. C. Lamb ;Associates
to start immediately on the $22,-
400~ project. Wayne State Univer-
sity, Michigan State University
and Western Michigan University
will be involved in the program.
The committee chairman, Sen.
Frank D. Beadle (R-St. Clair)
made it clear last night that the
study is not for comparison, but
to provide a guide for planning the
expense of higher education in
Plan Follow-up Stdies
Beadle hopes to follow up this
initial pilot study with an inves-
tigation of all nine state-support-
ed universities and colleges. He
said his committee has already
consulted with presidents of each
of the institutions.
There was no special reason for
excluding the University from this
first study, Beadle said. "The
schools we picked will give us a
general pattern for overall spend-
He said the surveys would be-
come more general as soon as the
committee receives more operat-
ing funds and the Lamb group
can handle more work "There is
a question whether they will be
able to finish the first group by
January," the date called for in
the contract.
Committees Meet
The Legislature reconvenes in
January, but special interim com-
mittees have been meeting reg-
ularly throughout the summer
and will continue to do so during
the fall.
The study will aim at reporting
cost per student credit hour. The
Legislature has been trying to get
uniform accounting from the
state universities in their budget
The legislators had considered
appointing Lamb's group in the
middle of July, but hesitated be-
cause of the uncertainty of suffi-
cient funds.
Adopt Uniform Methods
The Michigan Council of State
College Presidents, meeting in
June, decided to adopt uniform
methods of reporting instruction-
al loads and enrollment as well as
uniform accounting procedures.
The new procedures-put into
effect July 1-were in compliance
with last year's appropriations act
which requested the state's edu-
cational institutions to represent
enrollment on a basis agreed upon
by all college presidents.

3day to block enforcement of up-

At the same time, the plan,

Congo Soldiers Revenge
Ambush; Attack Luntus
LEOPOLDVILLE (JP) - Rampaging Congolese soldiers last night
were reported to have killed upwards of 200 tribesmen in a revenge
massacre near Luluabourg in Kasai province.
A United Nations official on a special investigating mission to
the area said hundreds of huts have been burned and that he himself
saw about 100 bodies.
The reported massacre followed an ambush in which about 20
Congolese soldiers were said to have been killed by Luntu tribesmen.
" The Congolese soldiers of the
Leopoldsville government are re-
