Senate Unit Rejects
Business Tax Clause
Kennedy Announces Depreciation
Relief, but Loses on Investment
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-Shortly after President John F. Kennedy an-
nounced a $1.5 billion tax cut for American business, the Senate Fi-
nance Committee handed him a severe setback by knocking out the
withholding system on dividends and interest out of his tax revision
bill yesterday.
Although the committee did approve plans for a seven per cent
credit on business investment in new equipment, the defeat means an

AHMED BEN BELLA
..triumphal fete

Rivals Wary
Of Ben Bella
MARNIA, Algeria (P)-Dissident
Deputy Premier Ahmed Ben Bella
returned in triumph to this fron-
tier city of his birth today and was
given a hero's welcome.
J In Algiprs, about 300 miles to
the east, the regime of Premier
Ben Youssef Ben Khedda was re-
ported watching the progress of
Ben Bella with growing uneasiness.
Already the deputy premier was
believed to command the loyalty
of most of the Algerian nationalist
army, and he set out from Mo-
rocco showing no disposition to
mend his quarrel with Ben Khed-
da.
Leave Morocco
Ben Khedda's mediators left
Morocco after talks with Ben Bella
apparently collapsed early in the
day.
The basic issue appears to be
Ben Bella's opposition to Ben
Khedda's policy of working with
France to build Algeria. Ben Bella,
long jailed by the French, wants
an Arab brand of Socialism.
The tall, deputy premier stepped
across the border from Morocco
at an isolated post on the parched
North African plain. He was flank-
ed by high officers of the guer-
rilla army's military District Five,
who have firmly installed pro-
Ben Bella forces in Western Al-
geria.
No Insignia
He shook hands. with non-
commissioned officers who wore
no insignia in accordance with the
custom of the Algerian People's
Army.
He then reviewed 120 men lined
up in front of the modern, war-
damaged frontier post.
A couple of hundred spectators
were silent until Ben Bella turned
to them with a broad smile. Then
applause broke out.
Ben Bella, who had been
brought to the border in a car
convoy from Rabat, then stepped
into an open car and was sped
behind motorcycle escort into
Marnia, a town of 12,000, mostly
Moslems, six miles to the east.
The caravan, followed by about
30 carloads of spectators, slowed
down fpr groups of Moslemi men,
wpmen and children along the
roadside, who shouted and waved
to the home town boy.
After passing under banners
proclaiming "long live Ben Bella"
in French and Arabic, Ben Bella
arrived in the town square, which
was crowded with thousands of
colorfully, dressed Moslems cheer-
ing and clapping.
State To Allow
Vote on College
LANSING (A)-The state De-
partment of Public Instruction yes-
terday approved an application ;
from Ionia County for establish- v

estimated $650 million in annual
tax revenues intended to be gain-
ed by the withholding scheme wil
be lost.
Added to this loss, of course, i
the $1.5 billion for allowances for
depreciation on old business equip.
ment, thus eliminating any hoper
for a balanced budget for the 1963
fiscal year.
Spur Expansion
Kennedy said the depreciation
reform might prompt business to
increase its annual outlays for
modernization an dexpansion by
as much as $6 billion.
"By encouraging American bus-
iness to replace its machinery
more rapidly, we hope to make
American products more cost-
competitive, to step up our rate of
recovery and growth and to pro-
vide expanded job opportunities
for all American workers," he said
in a statement.
The liberalization represented
the most sweeping overhaul of the
tax depreciation system in at least
two decades. It was accomplished
entirely through administrative
action and will go into effect at
once without any action by Con-
gress.
Severe Blow
But Kennedy had counted heav-
ily on the plan for withholding 20
per cent of all dividends and in-
terest payments.
And he pushed the investment
credit as an incentive to business
to modernize equipment and keep
America competitive in an ex-
panding world economy,
The committee's vote was 10-5,
but moves to reverse this action,
plus the seven per cent investment
credit, are expected to be made on
the Senate floor.
Protest Backs
Doctors' Strike
- REGINA, Sask. () - Several
thousand citizens staged an order-
ly protest outside Saskatchewan's
provincial legislative building yes-
terday against the government's
medicare program.
The turnout fell far below pre-
vious estimates that ranged up to
30,000, but almost every sizable
community in the province was
represented. The Canadian Press
estimated the crowd at 4,000.
Lloyd's government, meanwhile,
put out a call for 200 British doc-
tors for temporary practice here
during the strike. Orders were sent
to expand the recruiting rcampaign
beyond the 50 to 100 British doc-
tors originally sought. Sixty have
been recruited so far out of 300
applicants.

Deny WCorry
About Probe
Of Eligibility
By JAMES GREENBERG

s Expressing unconcern about the
3 investigation over his eligibility to
run for the Democratic nomina-
tion for Washtenaw County state
1 senator, Dick Wakefield yester-
Q day challenged the Democratic
r Party to throw him off the ballot.
"If the Democratic Party wants
to remove me, they will have to
do it through the courts," Wake-
field declared.
"I don't care where I live and
neither should the people of the
33rd (Washtenaw County) Sena-
torial District," he added.
Investigate Status
City, state and county officials
are investigating Wakefield's stat-
us as an eligible voter after Coun-
ty Democratic Chairman Peter P.
Darrow complained that Wake-
field's listed residence was that of
Howard Wikel, an Ann Arbor
druggist.
Wakefield explained that, as a
bachelor, he commutes between
Detroit and Ann Arbor. He said
he has lived in Ann Arbor on and
off for the last 23 years and is a
registered voter here. When in Ann
Arbor, he added, he often stays at
the Wikel residence.
Wakefield's name remains on
the ballot as no court action to
remove has been initiated. Print-
er's proofs posted on the wall of
the City Clerk's office lists his
name as a candidate running
against Prof. Robert Niess of the
Romance Languages department.
No Action
"No action was taken on his al-
leged false address because Wake-
field had not finished registra-
tion, but since he swore that he
was an eligible voter on Aug. 7,
he is considered a registered voter
unless successfully challenged at
the polls, City Clerk Fred J. Look-
er said.
Darrow said that the party is
awaiting the outcome of the in-
vestigation. "What it does depends
on the investigation. If enough
evidence is found, a mandamus
proceeding would be in order and
Wakefield's name could be strick-
en from the ballot," he declared.
Prof. Niess said that Wakefield
"apparently intends to convert the
serious business of democratic
elections into a travesty."
"I hope that Democratic voters
will demonstrate their belief in the
orderly process of the American
party system by supporting my
candidacy," Prof. Niess added.

Groups Compete
In OSA Derby
In response to various criticisms, Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs James A. Lewis in the summer of 1961 appointed a
student-faculty-administration study group to make recommen-
dations for revisions in the structure of the Office of Student
Affairs.
This committee, chaired by Prof. John Reed of the Law
School, met at great length throughout the past fall and spring
semesters, finally presenting its report on Feb. 21.
The Reed Report called for a clearly-defined student af-
fairs philosophy with a heavily-academic basis, and asked that
lines of authority within the office be redrawn and re-orientated.
Functional Arrangement
It asked for a more functional organization, with director-
ships of housing and discipline.
The dean of men and dean of women would be replaced,
and instead a dean and associate dean of students, directly re-
sponsible to the Vice-President, would oversee student organiza-
tions and scholarships and financial aid. These two offices,
however, had to be of the opposite sex.
In addition to the directly vertical lines of authority leading
to the Vice-President, several faculty and student committees
would be set up as advisory groups for the director of housing,
dean of discipline and the Vice-President himself. All final
responsibility, however, would lie in the Vice-Presidency.
Private Meeting
It is this report which has been the focal point for the
many-sided opinions on the OSA. Lewis, a member of the Reed
Committee, signed its report, and accepted it along with other
group's recommendations to incorporate into a complete rec-
ommendation to be submitted to the Regents, who would take
final action.
Just before the Reed Report was released, several of the
Regents and top-level administrators met behind closed doors
with the committee, and reportedly raised strong objection to
the report, particularly in its handling of the role of women
students.
It is not publicly known whether the Regents and adminis-
trators succeeded in persuading the committee to alter its report,
so as to differentiate between the needs of men and women. It
does provide that men and women students be treated alike as
much as possible, with the official personnel administering them
based on functional rather than sexual lines, such as in the
dean of men and dean of women.
Trends Revealed?
At the May session, however, the Regents may have given
some inkling of the future arrangement of the OSA. Their in-
dividual comments, plus Lewis's partial report, were recorded in
the.semi-official minutes, excerpts from which are printed below:
From Lewis's recommendation-"The following functional
divisions each headed by a director will be:
1) COUNSELING. To counsel with individual students: to
coordinate the services of the University in order to individualize
and personalize the collegiate experience of students. Concern
for student welfare and maximum utilization of his capabilities.
To provide requisite information and effective liaison to campus
counseling agencies.
2) DISCIPLINE AND JUDICIARY. To emphasize corrective
discipline. To maintain optimum morale. Rules and regulations
shall be clearly formulated and communicated. Emphasis on
positive principles. Use of student leaders. To stress preventative
measures.
3) HOUSING. To physically accommodate students, pro-
mote academic learning, and enhance personal development.
Supervise residence halls, provide off-campus listings, admin-
ister applications and contracts for residence halls, and super-
vise housing maintenance and repairs.
4) STUDENT FINANCIAL AID. To administer the program
of scholarships, loans, and grants-in-aid. To provide assistance
best suited to the student's personal and intellectual growth,
with consideration to need, special abilities, and future promise.
5) STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND STUDENT GOVERN-
MENT. "To provide a favorable continuation of the socialization
process of the individual, to provide opportunities for experi-
ences in good group interaction and relationships, and to de-
velop student leaders on campus as leaders for later life . ..
Comments by University President Harlan Hatcher: "It is
important to serve the needs of students as students, but also
to recognize the special areas where women have their own
particular interests and their own, often unique, ways of solving
their problems and promoting their happiness . .."

PROBATION:
National
Hits .DG's
A Delta Gamma chapter at Be-
oit College was put on probation
last week at the national conven-
tion at Mackinac Island.
The local, which pledged a Ne-
gro girl in April, had been on
probation pending action from the
national council since last May.
In both cases, the national listed
failure to comply with "rules and
regulations" of National Delta
Gamma. What the rules and reg-
ulations are specifically was not
specified.
Not Public
St. Clair Richards, spokesman
for the national, told the Chicago
Sun Times that what tlge specific
procedures are which were violated
are "not a matter for public in-
formation."
TheiBeloit local was put upon
probation until November when
it will be able to apply'for rein-
statement. Miss Richards noted,
in thesame news article, that she
felt the chapter would be rein-
stated at that time. She also felt
that Patricia Hamilton, the Ne-
gro pledged, would probably be
initiated.
In May, when the first proba-
tion action was passed by the na-
tional president, Mrs. Russell Nash,
of Des Moines, an alumae of Delta
Gamma, charged discrimination
on the part of the sorority. '
Private Matter
The national president and
Phyllis Farnsworth, president of
the Beloit local, at that time said
that the reasons for the probation
were the concern of only the
sorority and the national.
Both, however, noted that the
probation action at that time was
not a result of the pledging of
Miss Hamilton.
Beloit College officials said that
to their knowledge no sorority ort
fraternity at the school has a
bias clause in its constitution.

Works To Complete

he emphasized&that the Senate
committee, or a group similar
to it, would always exist to
function as an appeal board
for judiciary decisions.
The OSA is expected to be re-
organized along functional lines
by the Regents at their July 27
meeting. Final recommendations
for the new structure will be made
to the Regents by University Pres-
ident Harlan Hatcher and Lewis,
who in turn has received several
advisory reports from groups in-
cluding a committee headed by
Prof. John Reed of the Law School
and Student Government Council.
At their June session, the Re-
gents acted on several of the rec-
ommendations presented by Lewis
at that time, but the areas of
personnel, judiciaries and func-
tions traditionally handled by the
dean of men and the dean of wom-
en were postponed for later study
and action.
Still To Decide
Lewis said yesterday he has ar-
rived at several final decisions to
be made in his recommendation,
but still has not decided on the
personnel to fill the offices.
He declined to reveal details of
his final opinions, and also said
his complete report to the Regents
will not be made public before-
hand.
Lewis said he has consulted ex-
tensively with personnel in the
OSA on the various alternatives
available for a revised structure,
and has kept them informed of
his tentative, although for all
practical purposes final, recom-
mendations.
To Meet with Faculty
He has not met with student or
faculty groups on the matter, but
said he plans to meet with the
University Senate Student Rela-
tions Committee next week and
also with the Reed Committee,
the student-faculty-administrator
group which he chaired.
His recommendations, however,
must be channeled through Presi-
dent Hatcher, who will present the
administration's advisory opinion,
to the Regents.,
The Regents are expected to de-
vote considerable attentionto the,
OSA, but it is uncertain whether,
the final restructuring for the of-
f ice will be completed at the July
meeting.
Lewis said he has not consult-
ed with the Regents since thej
May meeting.I

'Announces
Room Rates
Residence halls room and board
rates will be increased $30 per
resident beginning this fall, Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis announced yes-
terday.
Themoney will be used to raise
the salaries of non-academic em-
ployes working in residence halls,
and to help provide the physical
revisions which will be necessary
when co-educational housing is
inaugurated in the fall of 1963.
Lewis also reported that there
will be a slight boost in salary for
resident advisors, staff counselors
and housemothers, although the
sum may vary from person to per-
son.
Funds for this use will come
from the $3.2 million increase in
the University's operating budget,
comprised of student tuition and
the legislative appropriation, which
came two weeks ago.
The Residence Halls Board of
Governors had approved the staff
salary increase during the spring,
while it had set a tentative three
to four per cent hike in room and
board rates at its June session.
But the latter rate could not
be determined until the state Leg-
islature passed the University's
appropriation.

Report for Regents
Vice-President Meets with Officials
As Revisions Near Final Approval
By GERALD STORCH
Vice-President for Student Affairs James A. Lewis dis-
closed yesterday he has assumed complete responsibility for
the policies of the OSA as the time draws near for its restruc-
turing.
"I made the assumption that the Reed Report meant what
it said" when it specified ultimate responsibility in student
affairs should rest with the Vice-President, Lewis said.
As an example of the consolidation of authority in the
Vice-Presidency, the University Senate Subcommittee on Dis-
cipline has ended much of the work it was devoting to study-
ing regulations dealing with "conduct unbecoming a student."
Committee Always Useful
Proposals for revision in areas such as this will center in
the Vice-President's office in the future, Lewis said, although
