Predict End of Algeria Feud

By The Associated Press
ALGIERS - Algeria's quarrel-
ing leaders yesterday expressed
new optimism that the nation's
bitter feuding is about to end as
Algeria's representative indthe
United States said he has been
informed an agreement has been
reached to restore unity of leader-
-ship in his country.
Abdelkader Chanderli, repre-
senting the Algerian provisional
government, told a reporter, "My
last information is that there is
an agreement. The terms of the
agreement will be made public
probably today. The agreement
will restore the unity of the lead-
ership in the interest of the
Tuesday Talk
He said it was reached at a
meeting of Algerian leaders in Al-
giers yesterday morning following
a similar meeting Tuesday night.
Chanderli was interviewed after
he paid a 45-minute call on United
Nations Acting Secretary-General
U Thant.
Beside statements and warm af-
firmations of reborn unity and
friendship, however, there was

Thant Asks UN States
To Mull Katanga Plan'
UNITED NATIONS (A)-Acting Secretary-General U Thant urged
United Nations member countries yesterday to impose an economic
boycott on Katanga province if it refuses to rejoin the Congo.
He sent an appeal to all 104 United Nations members to join in
bringing pressure on President Moise Tshombe's Katanga government
to end its two-year secession from the central government.
Further Measures
He declared that if such persuasion by member nations should
finally prove ineffective, "I would ask them to consider seriously
"what further measures may be

U Receives

Two Grants
The University received two
grants yesterday, for the disparate
fields of water pollution and auto-
mobile driving.
The publicghealth school was
given a $250,000 grant from the
United States Public Health Serv-
ice to expand its faculty and grad-
uate instruction on problems in-
volving the pollution of water.
The five-year stipend will pro-
vide scholarship aid for students
entering a special interdisciplinary
program in the fall, and allow the
hiring of at least two more fac-
ulty members to operate the func-
tion and do research.
Joint Degrees
Prof. Clarence J. Velz, chairman
of the environmental health de-
partment, will supervise the pro-
gram, which will include five stu-
dents taking coursesrleading to the
joint masters degrees for public
health and science in conserva-
Interdisciplinary training will
come through conservation courses
from the natural resources school,
and sanitary engineering from the
engineering college.
Prof. Lyle E. Craine, chairman
of the conservation department,
and Prof. Jack A. Borchardt of the
civil engineering department will
oversee the program's activities
not under the public health school.
Attract Careerists
Dean Myron F. Wegman of the
public health school said the mon-
ey will be used "to attract career
men into the water resources field
and broaden their academic train-
He noted that water pollution
is becoming an increasingly criti-
cal problem for society, and new
specialists must be trained to meet
In the other grant, officials of,
the Transportation Institute re-
ceived a $47,800 award from the
Ford Motor Co. to conduct the
nation's first electronic study of
the behavior of motorists, and the
effects of traffic and highway con-

"In this context, I have in mind
economic pressure upon the Ka-
tangese authorities of a kind that
will bring home to them the real-
ties of their situation and the fact
that Katanga is not a sovereign
state and is not recognized by any
government in the world as such,"
Thant said.
Bar Trade
"In the last resort, and if alll
other efforts fail, this could jus-
tifiably go to the extent of barring
all trade and financial relations."
Thant's appeal is in line with the
policy of the United States to
bring economic pressure on
Tshombe's government to rejoin
the Congo.
Thant denied last week that he
had proposed any new military in-
itiative against Tshombe. There
had been reports that he had
raised such a question in private
talks with his 18-nation Congo
advisory committee.
Committee Meets
He issued the appeal to the
member nations after meeting
Tuesday with the committee. Up-
on advice of the committee he de-
cided against calling any meeting
of the U.N. Security Council on
the Congo at this time.

WASHINGTON-President John
F. Kennedy prodded the Russians,
the Peruvian military junta and
the city fathers of Albany, Ga.,
yesterday as he also urged at his
news conference stricter controls
ver hazardous drugs such as
Kennedy prodded Russia to
make a switch and go back to its
earlier position accepting the idea
of international inspection to po-
lice a nuclear weapons test ban.
If Russia will do this, Kennedy
hinted, this country would modify
its requirements on inspections at
the negotiations now under way
in Geneva. The entire United
States position is being reviewed,
he said, in the light of the new-
est technical information on de-
tection of tests.
Seek Talks
He urged the city fathers of Al-
bany, Ga., to agree to demands of
Negroes leading a movement to
overturn racial barriers for dis-
cussions around a conference ta-
ble. Said the President:
"The United States government
is involved in sitting down at Ge-
neva with the Soviet Union. I
can't understand why the govern-
ment of Albany, the city council of
Albany, cannot do the same for
American citizens.
"We are going to attempt as we
have in the past to try to provide
a satisfactory solution for the pro-
tection of the constitutional rights
of the people of Albany, and we
will continue to do so. The situa-
tion today is completely unsatis-
factory from that point of view."

never discuss local problems with
"outside agitators," a stand sup-1

He said, however, that it is en-
couraging that ousted President
Manuel Prado has been released
and that there are assurances of a
restoration of civil liberties and of
the holding of free elections.
There was no new word on what
Kennedy may do about a bid for a
tax cut to give the economy a shot
of vitality.
End Tests
In a rather casual way, the chief
executive announced that nuclear
weapons tests which have been un-
der way in Nevada since last fall
have been ended and that only
three more test shots are under
consideration in the current Pacif-
ic tests.
Kennedy spoke out for tougher
controls over such hazardous drugs
as the tranquilizer thaildomide and

The directorships have specific
functions to carry out, while the
assistants-except for Mark Noff-
singer, who will be a coordinator
for counseling-will have more
general duties, with no pre-
established areas of authority.
Other Personnel
Other personnel involved in the
shuffling besides Noffsinger are:
Former Dean of Men Walter B.

nancial aids and one of the four

-were not changed.
These units are. on the same
level structurally as the director-
ships, but differ in area of con-
cern. The directorships will in-
volve matters affecting a broad
cross-section of students, whereas
the other centers will be more
autonomous in operation and more
specific in student constituency.
For instance, the scholarships
and loans directorship would be

available to any student wishing
financial aid, while a unit such
as the International Center is
concerned mainly with foreign stu-
dents. ,
This type of structure differs
markedly from the old OSA. Pre-
viously-as several student and
faculty groups had complained-
centers of authority were blurred,
and lines of responsibility often
proceeded through middlemen be-
fore reaching the vice-president.
And the old differentiation be-
tween men's and women's affairs
had been alleviated to a great ex-
tent with the elimination of the
deans of men and women.
Director, Dean
The directorships will take on
a functional basis over duties pre-
viously handled by the deanships.
Thus, there will be only one struc-
tural unit for housing, instead of
the two seperate units under each
Lewis' assistants then will handle
any function formerly belonging
to the deans and not covered by
the directorships. As the vice-
president said, "there will always
be people to take care of the
.special needs of women."
The four assistants will have
certain general areas of duty, in
addition to any job asked of them
by Lewis. In addition to Noff-
singer's counseling tasks and Mrs.
Davenport's advisory capacity for
women's affairs, Rea will do some
work as an assistant in some coun-
seling matters, and Ostafin is ex-
pected to continue much of his
work in areas affecting student
health and safety.

Con-Con Sets New Document
Despite Democratic Criticism

Kelly, Downs

GOP Majority Votes
To Effect Plan Now
Special To The Daily
LANSING - The constitutional
convention adopted the proposed
constitution yesterday despite a
ruling from Attorney General
Frank Kelley that the new docu-
ment was unconstitutional.
Kelley asserted that the consti-
tution's new sections relating to
apportionment of the Senate to
not correct the "invidious discrim-
ination" between the districts as
colled for by the Michigan Su-
preme Court.
Con-Con Vice-PresidentTom

motion to recess until October 25
said that the decision of the Mich-
igan Court "raises a very serious
question as to the constitutional-
ity of the proposed new docu-
Await Ruling
He felt that a recess was nec-
essary pending possible review by
the U.S. Supreme Court of the
Senate apportionment decision
handed down by the state Supreme
Court a few weeks ago. He also
felt that it would allow the dele-
gates time to give "deliberate rea-
soning to this vital question."
The GOP majority voted down
the motion and then decided to

Delegate Richard Van Deusen
(R-Birmingham) said that the at-
torney general's opinion was "poli-
tically inspired and professionally
valueless. There is nothing in the

would make the conventional Con-
vention's Senate provisions uncon-
The afternoon session brought
heated debate between the two
parties, on the convention's "Ad-
dress to the people" which ex-
plains the work of the delegates.
Democrats objected to the preface
of the address which they felt con-
tained more conclusions than
statements of fact. They denounc-
ed wording that claimed some of
the constitution's new provisions
were "improvements" over the old
ones. William Ford (D-Taylor)
said that the convention should
not use public money to tell the
people what they should think."
Minority Report
Various amendments, including
a Democratic minority report, were
introduced to the convention by
the Democratic delegates but the
overwhelming number of Republi-
can delegates defeated them.
The final vote on the proposed
document was 98-43, with five
Democrats siding with the Repub-
licans and three Republicans
crossing party lines.
The original copy of the docu-
ment was signed by convention
President Stephen Nisbet (R-Fre-
mont) and the convention's secre-
tary Fred Chase before delivery to
Secretary of State James Hare.
Hare said "that there may be a
difference of opinion over what
you have brought forth - but
there's no denying that you've put
a great deal of work on it."

federal Court Rulings Slow
State Redistricting Battles
NEW YORK (QP)-Backers of reapportionment of state legisla-
tures to give more voice to urban areas were reminded again yesterday
in a number of states that they face an uphill fight.
Court rulings or legislative wrangles in New York, Wisconsin,
Florida, Vermont and Oklahoma knocked down reapportionment
arguments in some instances and postponed action in others.
Long-drawn-out battles appeared certain on the issue sparked
by recent United States Supreme Court rulings that federal as well
state courts may hear questions
of reapportionment of state legis-
I latures.


Newman Club Views Atom War

Can the people of a country be
considered military targets? IS it
better to be Red than dead? When
can retaliation be considered mor-
ally right?
The Rev. Father Leo Sands,
Grad, led a group of 45 persons in
a discussion of these and related
questions last night at the New-
man Club center.
He told the audience that there
are two outstanding schools of

just war can't be applied to a nu-
clear war because a nuclear war
can't be limited.
The first school asserts that

there is a conflict of cultures and
that a civilization may war to de-
fend its Judeo-Christian values,
such as natural law and freedom.
Post-Christian Era
The second school replies that
we are living in a post-Christian
era, that guilt is not total nor the
situation black and white, that not
all of the Russians can be said to
be guilty and to be justifiably pun-

But there is a good possibility
that both civilizations will have
