... committee work

Tell Works
: Of Con-Con
"The work the convention per-
formed and how they did it was
rarely reported anywhere. For this
reason the public has an incom-
plete idea of how the constitution
was drafted," said Prof. James K.
Pollock of the political science de-
Prof. Pollock, a Republican con-
vention delegate from Ann Arbor,
spoke on "The Deliberative Pro-
cess: Committees and Committee
Procedures." It was the third of
a six-part series of lectures on the
1962 Michigan Constitutional Con-
The convention consisted of nine
' substantive committees which
"dealt with the actual provisions
of the constitution," Prof. Pollock
Size Varied
The committees varied in size
from 15 to 27 and favored the Re-
publicans two to one, as did the
convention proper.
"Each committee always had all
the elements of the convention
represented on it, to some degree,"
Prof. Pollock said.
All of the meetings and public
hearings of the committees were
opened to the public. "This was
an important decision by the con-
vention ... It was an exceedingly
important victory for open gov-
ernment," Prof. Pollock added.
Public Hearings
The public hearings of the com-
mittees "gave the ordinary citizen
the opportunity to come before the
committee and present their own
ideas," Prof. Pollock continued.
The important thing for the
committee was to bring before the
convention definitive proposals.
Each of the 129 committee pro-
posals included a report that "ex-
plained why the committee did
what it proposed to do," Prof. Pol-
lock said.
Two problems face all of the
committees, he declared. The first
was the difficulty of keeping the
convention informed of what the
committees were doing. The sec-
ond problem arose when more
than one committee felt that it
should have jurisdiction over a
certain issue.
Judge Delays
Medicare Suit
REGINA, Sask. WP)-A Regina
judge yesterday overrode govern-
ment objections and postponed un-
til July 17 arguments on a request
for an injunction to suspend oper-
ation of Saskatchewan's compul-
sory medical care insurance plan.
Attorneys for three Saskatche-
wan residents asked for the post-
ponement to obtain more material
in their legal battle against the
10-day-old program.
Medicare opponents also planned
a protest march on this provin-
cial capital today.
A ma invity, of the nrmine.'c, I7nf

could not obtain enough signa-
tures on a petition to run. He then
posted a $100 bond with County
Clerk Luella Smith a few minutes
before the filing deadline.
Darrow Questions
The question of eligibility was
raised by the County Democratic
Chairman, Peter P. Darrow upon
discovering that Wakefield did not
live at the address he gave when
applying to register.
Darrow stated, "when I called
his alleged address a maid an-
swered and informed me that this
was the Howard J. Wikel's resi-
dence and that Mr. Wakefield had
not, and did not live there. I had
her repeat it for County Prose-
cutor Ager."
City Clerk Fred 'Looker added
that Wakefield had been an oc-
casional guest at the Wikel home.
Wakefield Missing
Investigations are now being
conducted by city, state and coun-
ty officials, but no one has been
able to contact Wakefield himself.
Charles Burns, D em oc ra t ic
chairman from the first ward, said
yesterday that the Democrats
would not encourage him to run
since previously to this he was
They are not sure that he is a
bona fide Democrat since he has
done nothing for the party, Burns
Not to Discourage
But, Burns was quick- to point
out, they would not discourage
him from running if he is found
to be qualified.
Article Five of Section Five of
the Michigan Constitution states:
"Each (state) senator and rep-
resentative shall be a citizen of the
United States, at least 21 years of
age and a qualified elector of the
district he represents . .
To be a qualified elector, one
must be registered to vote, and one
must be a legal resident to register.
Wakefield is not yet a legal resi-
dent of the district, according to
the office of the City Clerk.

Sets Reflect
Modern Play
When "Five Finger Exercise"
opens at 8 p.m. today in the True-
blood Aud., the setting will be a
realistically portrayed interior of a
modern house.
The production, which will run
through Saturday, marks the first
time the Trueblood stage has been
used for a modern drama since it
was reconstructed last winter.
Converted into a semi-Elizabe-
than stage by Ralph Duckwall,
stage and scene designer for the
speech department, the stage is
formal in design, rather than be-
ing a blank box, as is the normal
Proscenium arch stage.
But "Five Finger Exercise," by
Peter Schaffer, calls for one set
only - the interior of a modern
house. To create a visual impres-
sion of reality, Duckwall designed
a set which does not make use of
the mechanical turntable, the bal-
cony or the back room built into
the new stage.
One of the requirements of the
play - a hallway leading down to
the living room and up to a
school room-Duckwall said he
was presented with the problem
of moving it far enough out onto
the stage so that the actors could
be seen and heard. But this led
nicely to the creation of a re-
cessed entranceway below the
school room, another requirement
of the script.,
In designing for this play -
which revolves around the discov-
ery of hidden conflicts and jea-
lousies beneath the surface of a
happy family life - Duckwall de-
cided that "the home must reflect
the touch of the mother.
"She's the one who dictates the
cultural aura of the family -
father is a little uncomfortable in
it, and he should feel that way.
The only jarring note in this 'cul-
tural elegance' is the schoolroom,"
he added, "and that's completely
the daughter's. She's detached
from the family and the room
should be detached visually, also."
In achieving the impression of
elegance a refined and snobbish
Englishwoman would create in her
home, Duckwall encountered a
problem in furnishing his set.
"Livable furniture with elegance
is the sort of thing you just don't
find everyday" and the sort of
thing' a University theatre can
hardly afford to buy, or keep in
its storeroom.
The furnishings loaned from
two local stores and set together
now give the impression of a home
designed by an interior decorator,
he said.

Ferris Raises Tuition,
Increases Enrollment
The Ferris Institute Board in Control announced yesterday that
it has approved a tuition increase effective the first semester, 1962.
The increase will place in-state tuition charges at $255 for the
three-term academic year instead of $210 charged previously. Fees
for non-resident students were increased from $480 to $570 for the
"Ferris accepted about 600 more students for its 1962 freshman
class than it had last year, and the failure of the Legislature to pro-

vide sufficient funds for this in-
crease necessitated the fee boost,"
United States District Court Sen-
ior Judge Raymond W. Starr,
chairman of the Ferris Board,
said yesterday.
College Reputation
He explained that in recent
years there has been a tremendous
increase in the number of appli-
cants because "Ferris is a highly
specialized college with a reputa-
tion for having a fine faculty and
excellent' training programs.
"But the college has had to turn
away as many as 2,400 qualified
students a year, since it simply
didn't have enough room for
them," Starr said.
Two new dormitories were com-
pleted a short time ago to house
the bulk of the 600 additional stu-
dents. Starr indicated that there
was already sufficient classroom
space for them, and therefore no
new construction of school build-
ings has been planned because of
the enrollment increase.
Fee Hike Faculty
"The higher fees will be used
primarily to hire 15 new faculty
members, and to pay the staffs of
the new residence halls.
The residence halls won't be fi-
nanced at all by the increased stu-
dent fees-they're self-liquidating
and were paid for by revenue
bonds," he added.
Franco Names
Military Aide
New Assistant
MADRID (A) - Gen. Francisco
Franco yesterday appointed his
highest military subordinate depu-
ty premier of Spain and named
seven new ministers in his first
cabinet shakeup in more than five
years, informed sources said.
The new appointments will be
announced officially today, gov-
ernment sources said.
They include Capt. Gen. Agustin
Munoz Grandes, 66, Franco's long
time military supporter and as-
sociate, as vice-president of the
National Council of Ministers, in
effect deputy premier.
Munoz Grandes, commandant of
the Spanish Blue Division which
fought alongside Germany on the
Russian front in World War II, is
considered one of the strong men
of the Spanish regime.

Continue Suit
Despite Loss
Two Henry Ford community col-
lege instructors who believe that
"the House -of Representatives
should represent the people" plan
to press further their reapportion-
ment suit despite a defeat in
Federal District Court yesterday.
A panel of three judges yester-
day refused the Carl J. Jacobs and
Donald A. Calkins request for the
court to order the election this
fall of all 19 Michigan congress-
men on an at-large statewide bas-
is instead of by district.
"This, under the circumstances,
is a request for an extraordinary
remedy and one which this court
is unwilling to indulge upon such
short notice and without full
study, consideration and reflec-
tion," declared Judge Clifford
O'Sullivan, ;joined by Talbot A.
Smith and Stephen J. Roth.
View Merits
"I didn't really expect this pre-
liminary injunction to prevail, but
I have verythigh hopes of success
at the next hearing, which will
concern the merits of the case it-
self," Calkins said last night.
The suit contends that the Unit-
ed States Supreme Court's Baker
vs. Carr decision applies to con-
gressional districting in the state
and that the present districting
violates the equal protection clause
of the Constitution.
The court did not want to in-
terfere with the election at this
stage, Calkins noted last night.
"But I expect future intervention
on the part of the court," he
stressed. If the Federal District
Court does not intervene, the in-
structors will appeal to the state
Supreme Court.

Wingert, a special Master named
by a federal court panel, opened
hearings yesterday on that state's

The two receiving stations in the
United States for use by the ma-

Perfect Reception
The reception of both the sound
and the picture were perfect.
Among the people interviewed
during the half hour program were
Frederick R. Kappel, Board Chair-
man of American Telephone and
Telegraph Company, whose Bell
Laboratories are responsible for
the development of the satellite,
and Newton Minow, Chairman of
the FCC.,
Both men stressed the import-
ance of the fact that this made
intercontinental live broadcasts
possible, and that America was the
first country to put up an imme-
diately useful peacetimesatellite.
The satellite was entirely financed
by the AT&T.

Bitat is a state minister in the

this cabinet.
Both have been in Rabat meet-
ing with Ben Bella and Moham-

talks were merely interrupted.
However, neither side would say
when they might be resumed.
Sources in the Moroccan capi-
tal said Ben Bella and Khider
gave the impression - perhaps
deliberately - that the talks
could not be resumed, or at least
not soon.

Intercontinental live television
became a reality yesterday when a
live broadcast from A n d o v e r,
Maine was received in Pleumeur
Bodou, France yesterday.
The program was r e la y e d
through space and a space com-
munications satellite.
This feat was made possible by
the Telstar satellite which was
boosted into orbit by a Thor-Delta
rocket from Cape Canaveral at
3:35 a.m. yesterday.
The Telstar satellite is a 170-
pound ball powered by blue-green
solar batteries.
The project was sponsored by
Bell Laboratory division of Amer-
ican Telephone and Telegraph. It
was a $50 million project.
The use of the Cape Canaveral
facilities, the-Thor-Delta rocket
and so on cost the company $4
million. It marked the first time
that a space project had been
sponsored and financed by private

television broadcast was carried by
all three major networks. It was
broadcast by land line to the larg-
est horn antenna in the world,
housed in a fifteen story plastic
shell, in Andover, Me. From there
it was broadcast to the satellite,
which picked up the signal and re-
broadcast it magnified 10 billion
times. These signals were picked
up back in Andover, Me. and
Homeland, New Jersey for re-
broadcast by the networks.
There were also stations in Brit-
ain and France attempting to
track the satellite and pick up the
signal. The station in France re-
ceived both sound and picture as
if "it was from a station only
twenty miles away." The British
station only received one fleeting

the satellite was a picture of the
American flag before the plastic

sound was the National Anthem.
In addition to its TV chores, the
remarkable satellite also handled

president of the United States and

The first news photograph was
a pooled picture from the As-
sociated Press and the United
