Citizens' March

of MSUJ Labor Relations Center
Special To The Daily
LANSING-Governor John B. Swainson had called upon some
2,000 citizens to march on the Capitol yesterday and demand further
increases in state spending; it "fizzled."
House Majority floor leader, Allison Green (R-Kingston), drew
applause for his quip that "I happened to glance out the window and
notice that throng listening to the Governor. There were a handful
of people (most of them campaigning for Romney)," and equal num-

Bill To Close
Center Here
Special To The Daily
LANSING - The House las
night voted 51-45.to close down the
Veterans' Readjustment Center in
Ann Arbor and ordered the action
within 60 days.
The bill now goes into the Sen-
ate-House Conference Committe
as a part of the $78.5 million ap-
propriation for mental health
which the House passed yesterday
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) pleaded in vain to continue
the facility, saying, "don't just de-
stroy something because there
seems to be a conflict in the facts
Let's keep it going temporarily, at
least and investigate the situa-
But Reps. William Copeland (D-
Wyandotte) and Harry Phillips
(R-Port Huron) stood on Cope-
land's investigation report which
described the Center as "just not
doing the job it should be for the
amount of money being expended.'
The operations of the Center will
be relocated to Veterans' Hospital
in Grand Rapids, which Bursley
deplored as "nothing but an 'old
soldiers' home. The Ann Arbor unit
is. a long standing and accepted
need. It is a good institution, pro-
viding necessary and specialized
psychiatric treatment."
He suggested it be continued on
a $200,000 appropriation, taking
private, paying patients to make
up the balance of its needs. The
House did not agree.
Seek To Make
School Prayers
WASHINGTON (/)-Amidst an
avalanche of bitter criticism of
the Supreme Court, members of
Congress proposed yesterday that
the Constitution be changed to
knock down the tribunal's ban on
prayers in public schools.
First to introduce a constitu-
tional, amendment to p e r m It
schoolroom praying was Rep. Roy
A. Taylor (D-NC), a Baptist dea-
con who lists Evangelist Billy Gra-
ham among his constituents.
A short time later a similar
measure was introduced in the
Senate by Sens. John Stennis (D-
Miss) and A. Willis Robertson (D-
Others said they planned to of-
fer such proposals.
But doubts that a constitutional
amendment would get far were ex-
pressed by Senate Republican
Leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illi-
nois. He told newsmen:
"The proposition of separation
of church and state is so ingrained
into our people that I doubt that
such an amendment would be
adopted. Perhaps there can be
some voluntary agreement worked
out locally by which prayers could
be said in the schools."
French Push
Algerian Peace
ORAN, Algeria (MP)-French gov-
ernment officials worked tireless-
ly yesterday to negotiate peace be-
tween the Secret Army Organiza-
tion terrorists and Moslem nation-
alists at Oran, the last major trou-
ble spot in Algeria..
Officials at the nearby Algerian
administrative capital, Rochee
Noir,: expressed optimism that a

deal could be worked out and de-
struction halted in the west Al-

MSU Controversy
Legislators meanwhile were in-
side fuming over the controversy
between the Senate and Michigan
State University President John A.
Hannah over MSU's Labor and In-
dustrial Relations Center.
An investigating committee, head-
ted by Sen. Lynn Francis (R-Mid-
land) last month persuaded the
Senate to amend MSU'subudget to
close the center, alleging it has a
pro-labor bias.
Yesterday Hannah fought back.
He called upon the House to strike
out the amendment when it con-
siders the higher education budget
Defends Center
MSU "feels that the Labor and
Industrial Relations Center is ren-
dering important and valuable
. services to labor and industry," he
said, and he called the move an
attempt by the Legislature to reg-
ulate academic affairs.
Francis charged collusion be-
tween the Center and MSU Trustee
. John Stevens of Detroit, state edu-
cation director for the AFL-CIO,
in the production of a film that
"portrays labor leaders as serious,
hard-working men, devoted to
their state and to objectives of
their organization, and business-
men as idlers who would prefer to
i talk about unions .over a cocktail,
rather than in their office."
He called it "university-sanc-
tioned propaganda," and called for
1 the closing of the Center in favor
of economy. It is unneeded, he
said, since the University and
Wayne State University operate a
similar unit.
House leaders indicated they
would be vigorous over the mat-
ter, but they doubted the amend-
ment would be overridden.
Charges Bias
Francis' charge that the center
is overbalanced in favor of labor
has drawn comments from MSU
officials and other leaders in in-
dustrial relations education.
Charles C. Killingsworth, orig-
inal director of the Center, said
part of the imbalance problem was
created in 1956 when the business
college objected to the Center's
program for business management.
MSU trustees have an impressive
string of Supreme Court decisions
to back Hannah's case against leg-
islative interference in academic
affairs, but lawmakers have the
ultimate weapon through their
control of financial appropriations
e to universities.
Hannah pleaded "When political
bodies begin to interfere, universi-
ties often cease to perform their
duty of seeking the truth, regard-
less of its popularity.

U.S. Warns
Red Chinese
About Attack
States was reported yesterday to
have warned Red China it will de-
fend Nationalist China's Formosa
against Communist attack.
But it also reportedly made it
clear this country won't support a
Nationalist invasion a t t e m p t
against the China mainland.
Diplomatic sources said the
United States position was convey-
ed to Red China in a meeting Sat-
urday at Warsaw between United
States Ambassador John Moors
Cabot and the Chinese Communist
ambassador to Poland, Wang Ping-
The State Department had no
comment on the report.
According to the informants the
Red ambassador declared that

Nationalist government on Formo-
sa, was preparing to invade the
The United States, as of today,

military buildup by Red China is
defensive in nature.
After Strike
Construction of the Physics-
Astronomy Bldg. was resumed
Thursday when a settlement was
reached with striking companies.
The International Association of
Bridge, Structural and Ornamental
Iron Workers of Detroit reached
a settlement of about a 37 cents
per hour increase in wages and
fringe benefits June 19.
Work on the 10-story portion of
the building could not continue
after April 30 since the reinforcing
steel, which is handled by the un-
ion, must precede all other con-
The Lathers' Union had struck
concurrently with the iron work-
ers' dispute, halting construction
of the lecture hall and library por-
tion of the building.
The end of both the lathers' dis-
pute and also the previous brick-
layer and mason jurisdictional un-
ion dispute makes possible the
completion of the lecture hall and
library by the fall semester.-
The loss of 35 working days
during the ideal spring months
will push the completion date of
the 10-story portion past the Feb-
ruary deadline and into the 1963
spring semester. This delay will
not increase the cost of the build-
ing to the University.

Extend Ban
OnAir Strife
NEW YORK UP) - A federal
judge, in a compromise move, yes-
terday extended for 10 days a ban
against' flight engineers striking
Pan American World Airways.
The original restraint was laid
down- last Saturday on a tempor-
ary basis.
The order signed in Brooklyn
Federal Court by Judge George
Rosling had no effect on the en-
gineers' strike against Eastern
Airlines, now in its fourth day.
Daniel Kornblum, attorney for
the Flight Engineers Union, said
he will appeal Rosling's extension
in an effort to clear the way for a
renewed walkout of Pan Ameri-
can's 500 engineers. They struck
for three hours Saturday before
the original restraining order sent
them back to work.
The issue in the engineers' dead-
lock with both Pan American and
Eastern is the elimination of one
crew position in jet airliners.
Crews now number four and the
engineers union wants the third
cockpit seat for its members when
the cutback is made.
Receive Grant
For Program
The Center for the Study of
Higher Education has received a
$360,000 grant from the Carnegie
Corporation to further its efforts
in training administrators and
educators at the college level.
The grant, a five-year outlay, is
an extension of a similar sum pre-
viously given by the corporation.

$750,000. Physics and Astronomy
Bldg. (partial payment), $2 mil-
Music Bldg. (total cost not to
exceed $3.6 million), $750,000.
The Republican majority in the
House beat back numerous Demo-
cratic amendments, which would
have added funds for various pro-
jects. None of the proposed amend-
ments concerned the University,
Exceed Request
The House also approved $2.45
million in mental health operating
funds for the University's Child's
Psychiatric Hospital. This is $200,-
000 more than was originally ask-
ed by Sen. Appropriations Com-
mittee Chairman Elmer R. Porter
The capital outlay bill as passed
also will provide some $6.5 mil-
lion for other higher education
construction, as follows:
Michigan State University, $1.6
million for completion of the
Mechanical Engineering Bldg. and
to begin work on a chemistry
Other Schools
MSU-Oakland, $85,000 to re-
model libraries and plan a new
classroom building.

In a marathon eight and a half

literally fought its way through
five major appropriation bills.

However, they were never able

to pass any of their measures. De-

Begin Talks
On Con-con,
"The securing of a constitutional-
convention in Michigan has been
a long, slow process," Prof. James
K. Pollock of the political science
department said yesterday.
Prof. Pollock spoke on the back-
ground of Michigan's 1962 con-
stitutional convention in the first
of a series of six lectures to be
given on Con-Con.
"A state constitutional conven-
tion is a very unique and unusual
institution. It arises directly out of
the electorate and is required to
return its product to them. ,or
their ratification."
Traces History
Michigan's first constitution was
regarded by many as the best for
the later documents of 1850 and
1908 "got away from the clear and
simple principles of the 1835 con-
stitution," Prof. Pollock said.
"People voting in an election
don't vote on issues," he continued,
and for this reason attempts, after
1908, to call a convention all ended
in defeat.
However, at each attempt the
popular vote in favor of calling
a convention increased until the
issue was passed in 1960.
Michigan Fortunate
"Michigan is fortunate to have
called a convention into session at
this time . . . for it will bring the
machinery of government in ac-
cord with the times," he said.
However, he admonished the
people to view state constitutions
"as instruments to be worked,. .
not instruments to be worshipped."
"We are all aware of the mag-
nitude and importance of con-con,
and in future lectures this gather-
ing will be analyzed in its more
significant aspects," he concluded.
