COLUMBUS-The Student Edi-

begins here today, will be asked
to disapprove of the action by the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications involving editorial ap-
pointments on The Daily.
Daily Editor Michael Olinick,
'63, will present a motion to the
assembled college newspaper edi-
tors, stating that the board's ac-
tions are not in accord with the

participants in the past has been
the issue of editorial freedom and

High on Agenda
The Daily motion will be high
on SEAC's legislative agenda.
In April of this year, the board
overrodet the recommendations of
the outgoing senior staff and trig-
gered a campus-wide fight.
The senior editors of The Daily
resigned and were joined in their
protest by seven of the eight pe-
titioners, who refused to accept
the board's appointments.
In a compromise move a month
later, the juniors accepted ap-
pointments which they felt did not
represent an attempt by the board
to control editorial policy of the
paper, but which did include more
minor changes from the seniors

Delegates to the 13th annual
NSA conference in 1960 adopted
a basic policy declaration which
called for student control of all

Speech Draws
More Praise
Than Blame
WASHINGTON OP) - President
John F. Kennedy's speech on the
nation's economic status and his
decision to postpone a tax cut un-
til next year seemed to be draw-
ing more bouquets than brickbats
The White House reported that
telegrams received since the Pres-
ident spoke on radio and television
last night "run about 2 to 1 in
favor" of his stand. A sampling
of the reaction of business experts
generally was favorable.
The criticism consisted chiefly
of complaints that Kennedy was
playing politics. Among those who
disagreed with the bright econom-
Ic picture he painted was Sen. Ja-
cob K. Javits (R-NY), who said
Kennedy's decision outs the coun-
try in a period of doubt as to
whether it will slip into a reces-
Another Republican, Sen. Hum-
er E. Capehart of Indiana, said
Kennedy's speech "sounded like a
continuation of his campaign
speeches of 1960. He was plainly
playing politics with a vital issue.
I am for a tax cut now with a
corresponding reduction in ex-

and campus newspaper editors al-
ready have begun meeting,
Built around the theme of "Stu-
dent Community: A Continuing
Challenge," the Congress will
bring together delegates from
NSA's 400 member colleges and
observers from other Universities
and student groups.
Duplicate Papers
Association staff members work-
ed late duplicating last minute
working papers and reports to the
National Executive Committee,
NSA's steering body.
In separate four-day confer-
ences, beginning today, student
body presidents from member and
non-member school will focus on
"the role of the student body
president" while the Student Edi-
torial Affairs Conference explores
"role of the press."
The first few days of the Con-
gress itself are set aside for sem-
inars where campus leaders discuss
common problems. Two of the
seminars this year deal with "in
loco parentis" and student educa-
tional peace efforts, two of the
more controversial issues.
"In Loco Parentis"
A motion on "in loco parentis,"
dealing with the tendency of col-
leges and Universities to act as
guardians of their students, was
passed as a basic policy declara-
tion by NSA last year without
much debate. This seminar will
try to find ways in which the "in
loco parentis" doctrine applies to
campus situations.
The student peace seminar will
consider the various socio-
economic problems which hinder
the achievement of peace and ex-
plore needs for possible student
action and research in this field.
Work Begins
Later in the week the real legis-
lative work of the Congress be-
gins. For four days the group
splits into committees and sub-
committees which cover the broad
areas of the educational process,
human rights and academic free-
dom, student government, the
campus community, and inter-
national student affairs.
The international committees

dents will participate in the Con-

Council president Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, will head the official
delegation of council members and
NSA committee members. SGC
member Robert Ross, '63, will co-
ordinate meetings of the Liberal
Study Group, which will hold de-
bates and discussions on major
issues facing the Congress. The
LSC is open to all participants and
attempts to stay free of the Con-
gress' political maneuverings.

Senate Votes
voted for the first time since the
prohibition era yesterday to im-
pose a time limit on debate and
clear the way for a space age bill.
By a tally of 63 to 27 in favor
of adopting cloture, the Senate
rolled up the required two-thirds
of those voting with three to spare.
The historic roll call came after
Sen. Frank J. Lausche (D-Ohio)
cried out that "the Soviet is or-
biting and we're filibustering."
Broke Barrier
It broke through a talk barrier
that has stalled the administra-
tion's communications satellite bill
since July 25.
The bill, which passed the House
May 3 by a 354-9 vote, would
provide for a private, government-
regulated corporation to own and
operate this country's share of a
projected global network of or-
biting relay stations.
Opponents have been battling
for government ownership, con-
tending the private corporation
would be ruled by the American+
Telephone & Telegraph Co.
Stop Flow
Not since Feb. 28, 1927, when
the issue was a bill to create a
Bureau of Customs and Prohibi-
tion, had the Senate previously
voted to restrain the flow of its
own oratory.
Adoption of cloture, or debate,
closing, means that each Senator
is limited to a total of one hour's
further discussion of the space
communications bill.
Final action on the measure may
be held off for several more days,
however, by action on amend-1
ments already offered by oppon-
ents. These total around 200 butl
many are duplications and only
about 25 are expected to be

carried out fully."
Fifty-Five Orbits
A Tass communique said Niko-
layev had completed 55 orbits cov-
ering more than 2.3 million kilo-
meters (1.428 million miles) and
Popovich had recorded 39 orbits
covering 1.6 million kilometers
(993,600 miles).
Tass did not identify the good-
night tune the astronauts sang
to each other by radio. The agency
said there were asleep a short
time later.
Western tracking stations re-
ported earlier that their space
ships had moved several hundred
miles apart, but the pair radioed
in a message to Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev and the Soviet people:
We are now at a close distance
from each other. A good contact
is established."
Space Expert
Meanwhile in Baltimore a rocket
expert from Martin Co. hailed to-
day the Russian space flights as
achievements in timing but said
the United States could have done
the same thing.
In fact, said Bastian Hello, a
manned rendezvous-in-space mis-
sion planned from Cape Canaveral
will be a much greater achieve-
ment than the tandem orbits of
the Russian cosmonauts now un-
der way.
Hello is directing Martin's phase
of Project Gemini, including mod-
ification of the Titan II inter-
continental ballistics missile, mak-
ing it suitable for launching the
Gemini capsule.
Two Carried
If all goes well, the Gemini will
carry two astronauts and will
make contact in orbit with an
unmanned Agena space vehicle.
The Gemini flights could last as
long as two weeks.
He said the National Aeronau-
tics and Space Administrationt
could have achieved tandem orbitsi
in the current Mercury program if
the agency had wanted to.1
"Provided that we had another1
launching pad (at Cape Canaver-
al), we could achieve this on the
next launch," said Hello. "We
could have two capsules orbiting.

islature convenes providing for an
industrial research foundation, a
move designed to inject some fuel
into the Midwest's slowed-down

probably be financed by private
foundation money, with help from
the Legislature, would attempt to

He commented that state legis-

ers "maybe will do some good." The
vice-president hadn't been con-
tacted about a conference among
the economic development com-
mittee and business and scientific
officials, but said the University
probably would be represented.
"The Legislature still likes the
word 'research'," he added.
He himself has had "about half*
a dozen" meetings recently with
various congressional and business
leaders, as the concern about re-
search in the Midwest and Michi-

state and national attention.

"would talk with Mrs. Davenport
about the possibility of allowing a
small number of women to break
their housing contracts and live in
off-campus housing."
No Explanation
Mrs. Davenport offered no ex-
planation for the increased enroll-
ment. But this year three buildings
formerly used for housing women
students have been either torn
down or assigned to other uses.
Byron Groesbeck, assistant di-
rector of admissions, said that
there has been no major increase
in undergraduate enrollment. "The
number of freshmen last year was
about 3,300, and it's just about the
same now," he said. He added that
there has been no change in the
male-female ratio.
Generally, there is a similarly
overcrowded condition in the

has been no over-population in
