UNITED NATIONS (Al) - The United Nations announced last
night that Indonesia and the Netherlands had reached a preliminary
agreement on how to tranisfer authority over West New Guinea,
now held by the Dutch and claimed by the Indonesians.

freed Mohammed Boudiaf yester-
day, clearing awaythe latest ob-
stacle to unity talks among feud-
ing Algerian leaders.
Ben Bella and Boudiaf are rival
deputy premiers in the stagnated
provisional government of Premier
Ben Youssef Ben Khedda.
Boudiaf was captured Monday
while visiting his home town of
' M'sila; about 110 miles Southeast
of Algiers, and spirited to Batna,,
a high plategu trading center 20
miles southeast of Algiers. He was
freed at Batna.

NEW YORK - A Federal judge
in Brooklin signed a restraining
order yesterday against the trans-

release and Mohammed Khider,
a special envoy from Ben Bella's
Oran headquarters, announced
these efforts were successful.
Khider said Boudiaf was freed
and will arrive in Algiers by today.
He was a companion of Boudiaf

Talks May Start
Thus, barring unexpected last
minute developments, round table
discussions can get under way.
The talks are aimed at reaching
a compromise on Ben Bella's
seven-man political bureau, which
he wants to become Algeria's top
policy-making agency.
Procrastination and continuation
of the crisis have been increasing
Algeria's political, administrative
and economic chaos. All politicians
are conscious of it and appear
more and more determined to find
a way out.
There was talk of forming a
temporary military committee that
would run the country pending
general elections. The committee
would consist of the six zone com-
Soldiers Arrest
Boudiaf's arrest was carried out
by soldiers of Wilaya (an Algerian
zone) No. 1. It was promptly de-
scribed as a mistake and "an in-
significant local affair" by the
Ben Bella faction. At his Oran
headquarters, a spokesman said
Ben Bella himself ordered Bou-
diaf's release.
At the same time, Ben Bella's
supporters announced that their
leader, as well as other members
of his political bureau, will be in
Algiers Thursday.
Algierian troops holding the city
have announced that the gates are
open to all political tendencies.
Meanwhile, the French-formed
provicional executive which theo-
retically administers the country
pending national elections, went
on with various tasks in an effort
to create a semblance of normalcy.
French military trucks convoyed
Europeans, released last week by
nationalist authorities, to the air-
port today for their departure for
France. The exodus of Europeans
is once again mounting.
Charge Torture
Reliable French quarters assert-
ed that French prisoners released
by the nationalists had been tor-
tured. The prinsoners had been
arrested since Algeria became in-
dependent July 3.
More than 400,000 of the 1,000,-
000 European residents have left
Algeria in the last four months.
In Algiers the new military mas-
ters of the city, the commanders
of the surrounding military region,
put the former commander, Si Az-
zedine, under house arrest. Two
of his deputies were also under
arrest and there were predictions
that the three would be tried for
various crimes including kidnap-
ping of Europeans.

Senate Fails'
To Halt Tiff
Democrats, deeply split over a
communications satellite bill, tried
to patch up their feud and end a
five-day filibuster last night, but
their efforts were stymied by the
objection of a lone Republican.
Sen. Mike Mansfield (D-Mont),
majority leader, tried to end the
long wrangle by proposing that the
bill be sent to the Foreign Rela-
tions Committee with the stipula-
tion that it be taken up again on
the floor Tuesday.
However, the action required un-
animous consent of the Senate and
Sen. Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz)
registered an objection.
Dirksen Backs It UP
As in other Mansfield moves in-
volving the filibuster, the com-
promise proposal had the backing
of Sen. Everett Dirksen (R-Ill)
and other GOP leaders.
The communications bill, which
would set up a private corporation
to handle space communications
such as those made possible by the
new satellite, Telstar, has passed
the House. Morse and other liberal
Democrats contend the govern-
ment should control space com-
Asks Shelving Period
The second time the Mansfield
compromise came up-resulting in
various objections-the majority
leader had proposed a 10-day
shelving period for the bill.
Some Republicans had voiced
fears the 10-day interim would be
used to bring up an Administra-
tion-supported farm bill and in-
sisted the leadership should file
a debate-limiting cloture petition
to force a decision on the com-
munications bill with around-the-
clock sessions.
May Continue
Nuclear Tests
States atomic officials indicated
yesterday they plan to continue
high altitude nuclear tests in the
Although the final decision still
rests with President John F. Ken-
nedy, an official announcement
indicated that tests were likely to
be begun in several weeks. There
had been speculation the experi-
ments might be discontinued after
three failures in four tries.

Thant Exerts Dispute
It climaxed efforts for a settle-
ment of the dispute that Thant
has exerted since early this year,
and came after Washington talks
between the two governments in
March and July.
The spokesman saide:
"Acting Secretary - General U
Thant is gratified that a prelimin-
ary agreement has been reached
by the Indonesian and the Nether-
lands representatives in regard to
the modalities of the transfer of
authorityover West New Guinea."
The spokesman added that:
"The secretary-general is opti-
mistic about the final outcome of
the officialanegotiations, which
will take place under his auspices
about the middle of August."
Subandrio later left New York
by plane for Beirut, Lebanon, en
route to Jakarta.
The preliminary talks have been
mediated by Ellsworth Bunker, a
United States diplomat appointed
by Thant.
Subandrio, on leaving his con-
ference in Thant's office, told re-
"We discussed the preliminary
understanding and I have to re-
port to my government.
"If things are going well, we
hope to be back to finish the for-
mal discussions before the middle
of August.
Reflects Views
"I cannot reflect at this moment
the views of my government. It is
my personal feeling that I have
explored the maximum of the un-
derstanding," he said.
The Washington talks dealt in'
their latest phase with a plan for
settlement that Bunker put for-
ward in April.
This plan would have had the
United Nations take over West
New Guinea and run it for one to
two years, turning it over to Indo-
nesia after the first year on a
guarantee that the Papuan inhabi-
tants later would be given a self-
determination referendum.
Revisions in Plan
Reports from the Hague said the
preliminary agreement involved
revisions of this plan to the effect
that there would be a symbolic
raising of the Indonesian flag on
Aug. 17, and that Indonesia would
get full control from the United
Nations next May 1.
Although West New Guinea has
been in dispute since Indonesia
gained its independence in 1949,
the issue became a serious onelast
December when President Sukarno
put his nation on war footing.
Both the Dutch and the Indo-
nesians reinforced their garrisons
near the disputed territory and on
several occasions Indonesian para-.
troop guerrillas have landed on its
eastern end. The Indonesians also
lost a minor naval skirmish with
the Dutch.
(Meanwhile, Dutch men, women
and children are being evacuated
from guerrilla-infested areas of
New Guinea.)

At Helsinki
To End Fair,
By The Associated Press
HELSINKI-A crowd of more!
than 4,000 anti-Communists dem-
onstrated Tuesday night in the
fifth straight night of public pro-
tests against the Red-dominated
eighth World Youth Festival.
Reinforced police squads routed
the demonstrators with tear gas
bombs. By midnight the Finnish
capital again was quiet. No serious
injuries were reported.
Part of the crowd apparently
gathered to see if riots and viol-
ence that broke out Monday night
would recur. A number of youths
touched off the demonstration.
Crowd Takes Gas
Police directed motor traffic
through other streets, warned the
noisy crowd through loudspeakers
and then resorted to tear gas. The
crowd scattered.
Monday night's crowds were es-
timated at 6,000 to 7,000 people.
Demonstrations started Friday,
two days before the festival open-
About 10,000 youths from 144

Britain, Malaya Act
To Form Federation
LONDON (P)-Britain and Ma-
laya agreed last night to create
a federation of Malaysia, a new
nation on the South China Sea I
with 10 million people, rich in
such natural resources as rubber,
tin and crude oil.
It will include the peninsula of
Malaya and the densely populated
island port of Singapore on one
side and, 450 miles across the sea,
Brunei, Sarawak and North Bor-
neo on the big island of Borneo.
All were old bastions of British
Malaya's Prime Minister, Tunku
Abdul Rahman, made the an-{
nouncement after a meeting with
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
It climaxed 15 days of negotiation
in London.
To Announce Today
Duncan Sandys, Britain's Com-
monwealth Relations Minister, will
announce the agreement in the
House of Commons today.
Rahman and Macmillan signed
the agreement. Singapore's Pre-
mier Lee Kuan Yew, who has tour-
ed neutralist nations to explain
the idea of federation, was present.
The Tunku, a strong anti-Com-
munist, has been the moving force
for federation. It will create a na-
tion combining the natural re-
sources of Malaya and Borneo
with the commercial nerve center
of Singapore, lying in a crescent
across the trade waters of the
South China Sea.
Counters Expansion
Federation also could be viewed
as a counter-measure to Indone-
sian expansion (part of Borneo
belong to Indonesia) and to Com-
munist China's influence in that
area of Southeast Asia.
Singapore, a self-governing state
in the British Commonwealth, with
about 1.6 million people-1.2 mil-
lion of theme Chinese-could be
the sore point in the federation
plan. Red Chinese in Singapore
fear a crackdown on Communists
in a federation headed by the
Tunku, and left-wing opposition to
the scheme has mounted.
Tunku Wanted Borneo
On the other hand, the Tunku
wanted the Borneo territories in
the federation to offset the large1
Chinese population of Singapore.
Britain agreed to this but insisted
on a gradual joining of North Bor-
neo and Sarawak to the federation
because these areas are relatively

Financial, Discipline, Housing Uni s
Organized on New Functional Basis
A new structure for the Office of Student Affairs-which
eliminates the offices of the dean of women and men-was
announced yesterday by Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis.
Lewis will now have total responsibility for the supervi-
sion and regulations of non-academic conduct of students.
The new OSA features three functional directorships for
housing, financial aids and student organizations-discipline,

and a beefed-up adminisra-
tive staff and student-faculty
advisory group to work with
'Unified Functions'
Most of the duties will be han-
dled on a "unified functional
principle," but Lewis strongly em-
phasized that "there will always
be people who can take care of the
special ifeeds of women."
After consulting with student
and faculty groups, he will for-
mulate a statement of philosophy
for his office, with most of it to
be based on the overall philosophy
for the OSA approved in May by
the Regents.
Lewis hopes to have the guiding
principles-and job descriptions-
ready by fall. The directorships
(except for housing) and the oth-
er structural revisions are effec-
tive immediately.
Responds to Complaints f
The cnanges were made in re-
sponse to complaints from several
student and faculty groups that
the OSA structure was extremely
unclear and that lines of author-
ity were not suitably drawn.
"The new structure reflects a lot
of study at the administrative lev-
el," Lewis said. He had consulted
at some length with the University
Senate Student Relations Com-
mittee and informally with the
The only major action taken byI
the Regents was on OSA philoso-
phy, although the body will con-
struct a new bylaw for the vice-I
presidency for student affairs, giv-
ing it the sole and final author-
ity for policies of that office.
Wanted Dean of Students
Originally, Lewis had advocated
a position of dean of students.-
But after the offices of admissions
and records were transferred to
the vice-president for academic
affairs, he decided that the re-
maining duties not under the di-
rectorships did not warrant the,
establishment of such a post.
Lewis, noted, however, that the
first year would be one of transi-
tion. The personnel will need timeE
to get adjusted to their new jobs,
and records and files must be
moved and re-assambled, the OSA
budget re-arranged.
At the end of the year, he will
re - evaluate the statement of
philosophy and also the effective-
ness of the revised structure.
Lewis' Four Helpers
Lewis will have four immediate
assistants: Elizabeth Davenport,
Mark Noffsinger, Walter B. Rea
and Peter Ostafin. Rea will also
be director of financial aids, while
John Bingley will take over the
directorship of student organiza-
tions and discipline.
Mrs. Davenport will serve in ah
advisory and counselling capacity
for women's affairs.
Noffsinger will be coordinator
of counseling. As one of his pri-
mary duties, he will be the execu-
tive secretary of an all-campus
counselling committee to be chair-
ed by Lewis.
Apparent Supervision
So that his "long experience in
student affairs" can be used to the
best advantage, Rea will serve as
an advisor to Lewis for general,
unspecified matters in student af-
Ostafin, too, will have no spe-
cific area of authority,
Rea will supervise scholarships
and loans. He will also develop
and coordinate University-wide
studies on the administration of
all student financial aids.

Pollock Views Effect of

Con-Con To Finish Session
Despite Demands for Reeess
LANSING-The Constitutional Convention will meet today to
close up shop despite Democratic demands for a recess pending a Unit-
ed States Supreme Court ruling on the state's apportionment.
The Democratic caucus, meeting last night, agreed to call the re-
cess until the court decides an appeal of the Michigan Supreme Court
decision nullifying the current Senate apportionment.
"There is considerable evidence to support the premise that the
proposed apportionment formula for our state Legislature will not.
meet even minimal requirements of the Federal Constitution, not to
< mention fundamental expectations
of fairness," Democratic Caucus
Chairman Adelaide Hart (D-De-
I troit) and Con-Con Vice-President
. Tom Downs (D-Detroit) declared.

Nisbet (R-Freemont) predicted
that the convention will put the
finishing touches on the document

the document from November to

Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis revealed their
appointments yesterday, but is
still working on the names and
function of personnel who will be
working for the directors of hous-
ing, financial aids and student or-
ganizations and discipline.
Bingley will handle the latter
directorship. Formerly an assistant
dean of men, he has handled much
of the OSA's cases of discipline,
and served as an advisory to Joint
Judiciary Council.
Started as R. A.
Now 4? years old, Bingley first
entered student affairs administra-
tion as a resident advisor in 1944.
He has also taughtacourses in his-
tory, and currently instructs in
great books.
Mrs. Davenport, formerly act-
ing dean of women, now becomes
a special advisor to Lewis for
1matters involving women. Winner
of a special Hopwood award dur-
ing her undergraduate days (1956),
she became an assistant dean af-
ter graduation, working mainly
with budgetary matters. She was
named acting dean last October
after the resignation of Deborah
Noffsinger, the new coordinator
of counseling, became resident
director of South Quadrangle in
1956 after being an instructor in
the education school at the Uni-
versity of Toledo.
37 Years Old
He was appointed assistant dean
of men in charge of off-campus
housing and automobile regula-
tions last year. He is 37 years old
at present.
Ostafin will continue to work
on safety and health problems as
an assistant to Lewis. 51 years
old, he also has had experience
in residence halls work as a resi-
dent advisor and assistant dean of
men. Ostafin entered the OSA in
1951 as an assistant dean of men
after experience as resident direc-
for of West Quadrangle and as an
assistant professor.
