The measure now goes to the
House, where passage is expected
next week to send it to President
John F. Kennedy after some ora-

The Senate vote on the com-
promise worked out in a Senate-
House conference was 56 to 26.
This compares to the 61-23 vote
by which the Senate passed the aid

measure with the

New Southern Drive
GREENSBORO, N.C. (A)-Sociodrama is a major training aid
being used here by an interracial group preparing for an attempt to
break segregation at public facilities along highways and in cities in
the South.
"We try to dramatize what would actually happen in a real
situation," Rudolph Lombard, vice-chairman of the Congress of
Racial Equality (CORE), which sponsors the "freedom highways"
drive, explained yesterday. Lombard, a graduate student at Syracuse

4University, said the goal of the
drive is to desegregate all public
facilities on United States high-
ways and in various communities.
Aim at Carolina
Between 22 to 25 demonstrators
are training here for the drive,
which Lombard said will start on
or before the end of July and will
be concentrated in North Carolina.
"We may get into Virginia and
Tennessee," he said, "but most of
our efforts will be in North Caro-
lina. Later we'll expand into other
Southern states."
The demonstrators plan to break
into small groups traveling in au-
tomobiles along U.S. 29, 74, 1 and
interstate highways. They will test
segregation at restaurants and mo-
tels, according to Lombard. Other
groups will be sent directly to ci-
Negotiate First
He said if a groupis refused
service, it will attempt to negoti-
ate with the manager or owner.
"If the negotiation phase is un-
successful, then we will have a sit-
in phase," Lombard said and add-
ed that the demonstrators are pre-
pared to face arrest.
"As was done in the case of Free-
dom Riders, we'll have to suffer
the consequences. The CORE poli-

deny all aid to Communist na-

A nnounces
Dick Wakefield, Democratic can-
didate for the state Senate, and
under investigation to determine
his eligibility to run, declared yes-
terday that it was his intention to
make 1019 Berkshire in Ann Arbor
his permanent address.
Wakefield's statement came in
response to a letter sent by the
city clerk's office questioning his
voting residence eligibility.
Howard Wikel, an Ann Arbor
druggist who lives at the Berk-
shire address, explained "Wake-
field stays with us when he is in
Ann Arbor."
Noting that he is a bachelor
with an insurance and tax con-
sultant office in Detroit which
keeps him in that city most of
the time, Wakefield said that he
considers his legal residence to be
with the Wikel's.

day, as attempts by four GOP
senators to delay the Supreme
Court's reapportionment decision
were denied by the court, 4-3.
"I anticipate a session on ap-
portionment at 2 pm. Tuesday,"
Morris declared. The chairman of
the Senate Judiciary Committee
who has been" pressing for an ear-
lier meeting refused to elaborate
on his prediction.
Senate Minority Leader Ray-t
mond Dzendel (D-Detroit) also
predicted a Tuesday session. "I
hope there is session. There should
have been one last week. It will
be an awfully tight schedule if we3
meet next Thursday," he declared.

Sen. John Fitzgerald (R-Grand
Ledge) meanwhile indicated that
he will appeal the state Supreme
Court's decision to the United1

He said he will ask the court to

FIiS Work
On. Tax Bill
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - While Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy decided to
put off until mid-August a deci-
sion on whether to press for an
immediate tax reduction as a bus-
iness stimulant, the Senate Fi-
nance Committee yesterday tenta-
tively completed work on his tax
revision bill.
Retained in it was a modified
incentive provision for business
to modernize its plants.
The major decision by the group
in its eight days of voting on the
bill was to kill a tax withholding
plan for dividend and interest in-

Cause Trouble
The general indicated that if
President John F. Kennedy refused
to recognize the junta it would be
only "to cause us trouble."
The United States suspended
diplomatic relations with the jun-
ta and cut off Alliance for Prog-
ress aid Wednesday.
Perez Godoy gave his assurances
that press freedom under military
rule would be guaranteed.
Comments on APRA
Asked about the closing Wednes-
day of La Tribuna, organ of the
American Popular Revolutionary
Alliance (APRA), Perez Godoy said
it was not shut down for what it
had printed. He did not elaborate.
APRA, long a bitter foe of the
military, is the party of Victor
Raul Haya de la Torre, who polled
the most votes in the now-discard-
ed June 10 presidential election.
Perez noted the newspaper was
closed for only one day and is now
publishing again.
More Criticism
The general, 56, appealed for
United States recognition as criti-
cism from other Latin American
nations piled up on the junta. Sev-
eral Latin American governments
have followed the United States
example in suspending relations.
Washington emphasized its de-
termination to seek a return to
civilian government in Peru with a
statement by the State Depart-
ment that military aid from the
United States has also been sus-
Perez Godoy said, "I want no
commitments from the United!
States, only consideration and to

At Geneva
By The Associated Press
GENEVA-Congo differences in-
truded yesterday into the Western
camp of foreign ministers gather-
ing here for talks on Berlin and
disarmament and to sign a Laos
peace treaty.
British Foreign Secretary Lord
Home was reported by spokesmen
in London to be determined to
warn Secretary of State Dean
Rusk against using economic pres-
sures to force secessionist Katan-
ga into Congo unity. There have
been strong, but unconfirmed re-
ports, that the United States is at-
tempting to line up support for
such a move.
The British view appeared to be
that a deliberate policy of forc-
ing Katanga into hard times would
do no good to anyone, especially
since the mineral wealth of the
province is the Congo's biggest as-
set. British and Belgian interests
predominate in Katanga's big cop-
per mining industry.
O'Brien Complains
In London, the former UN poli-
tical chief in Katanga, Conor
Cruise O'Brien of Ireland, repeated
previous charges that the British
government is impeding UN efforts
for a Congo unity settlement.

Wayne State University's Board

WSU President Clarence B. Hill-

Hillberry recommended the fol-
lowing schedule for maximum sal-

N.Lorstad Set,
To Quit Post
Defense Realignment
Affects Staff Chief,
Europe Commander
Lyman L. Lemnitzer will become
the new United States command-
er in chief in Europe and Gen.
' Maxwell D. Taylor will succeed
him as chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, the White House
announced last night.
Lemnitzer's new appointment is
expected to put him in line to
succeed Gen. Lauris Norstad as
supreme commander of North At-
lantic Treaty Organization forces.
Decker To Quit
Other changes in the Army high
command also were announced by
Press Secretary Pierre Salinger.
Gen. George H. Decker, presently
Chief of Staff of the Army, will
retire Sept. 30 and will be suc-
ceeded by Gen. Earle G. Wheeler,
Deputy United States commander
in Europe.
Taylor now is military adviser
to President John F. Kennedy.
The NATO Council which meets
in Paris next Tuesday will name
Norstad's successor. The council
presumably will ask the United
States for a recommendation.
Appointment Definite
If this is the case it was learned
authoritatively Lemnitzer will be
recommended for the job.
Norstad is retiring from the Air
Force and stepping out sometime
near Nov. 1 as United States com-
mander-in-chief in Europe and as
NATO commander.
Kennedy announced earlier in
the day in Washington his accept-
ance of the 55-year-old strategist's
request that he be relieved after
six years as supreme Allied com-
mander in Europe.
Lemnitzer's two-year term as
chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
Staff ends Sept. 30, and he will
serve it out, Salinger said.
Succeeded Taylor
Before his appointment as
chairman, Lemnitzer served from
March 1959 to July 1959 as Army
chief of staff. He succeeded Taylor
in that post.
In July 1961, Kennedy recalled
Taylor to active duty and made
