Michigan Daylight Time
Begins Midnight Tonight





LANSING (P)-Michigan will go
on Eastern Daylight Saving Time
for the first time in more than
20 years at 12:01 tonight.
The Board of State Canvassers
yesterday announced its inten-
tion to certify petitions seeking a
vote by the people on the Day-
light Saving Time issue in the
November, 1968, election.
Mrs. Esther Waite, board chair-
man, explained yesterday that fin-
al action on the certification was
delayed until 12:01 a.m. tonight
to allow for an orderly transition
in the time change.
"We felt if people had tonight




and tomorrow to. effect the change
it would be enough," she said.
Three of the four board mem-
bers will have to be present to
make the time change legal.
Attorney General Frank Kelley
had ruled that certification auto-
matically would suspend the law
exempting Michigan from the Fed-
eral Uniform Time Act passed by
the Legislature and signed by Gov.
George Romney earlier this year.
Milton London, president of the
Michigan Association of Theatre
Owners, said the anti-daylight
time forces would make no imme-

Eshkol Says Israel
To Keep War Gains

By The Associated Press
TEL AVIV, Israel-In a tough
speech indicating Israel will keep
strategic gains in the war with
the Arabs, Prime Minister Levi
Eshkol warned the world yester-
day "the situation which existed
until now shall not be allowed to
"The borders of Israel are no
longer a no-man's land open to
murder and sabotage from with-
out," Eshkol told Parliament.
As for the new state of affairs,
Eshkol said this is a matter for
negotiations between Israel and
the individual Arab nations-
Egypt, Syria and Jordan.
While he did not spell out
Israel's precise aims, his words in-
dicated he was thinking of con-
trol of the Gulf of Aqaba, the
west bank of the River Jordan,
the Jordanian-occupied Old City
of Jerusalem from which Jordan's
Arab Legion was routed, and the
heights overlooking the Sea of
Galilee from which Syrian gun-
ners long have shelled Israeli set-
Directed at Russia
Eshkol's words seemed directed
mainly at the Soviet Union, which
has been demanding that Israel's
army return to the lines it held
before the war broke out. But he
also had some harsh things to
say about the United Nations.
4 In measured tones, Eshkol as-
sailed the United Nations for
withdrawing its peace - keeping
force on the demands of Egypt's
Gamal Abdel Nasser, and said in-
action by the world body encour-
aged the Arab buildup.
He paid tribute to Israel's
friends but swung again on the
Russians, asking the Soviet Union
"why was it the only power that
did not censure Nasser's aggres-
sive designs."
Eshkol spelled out the machin-
ery Israel will insist upon.
Direct Negotiations'
"A new situation . has been
created which can be a starting
point for direct negotiations for a
peace settlement with the Arab
countries," he said. "Conditions
now exist wherein the people of
the world, headed by the great

Syrian artillery position com-
manding the valley of Galilee.
The military sources said the
Soviet officers were taken prisoner
Saturday when Israeli assault
troops captured the hilltop posi-
tion after a heavy artillery battle.
Meanwhile, the Soviet Union
was reported preparing last night
to call for a special session of the
General Assembly to deal with
problems from the six-day war
and to demand a pullback of Is-
raeli troops.
The Israeli-Arab conflict now is
before the 15-nation Security
Council, but apparently the Rus-
sians have decided to seek sup-
port for a full-scale debate in the
122-nation assembly,

sentatives have been consulting
other delegations privately on the
Any Soviet move to go the as-
sembly with the Mideast question
would represent a reversal of So-
viet policy. The Russians have in-
sisted that questions of peace-
keeping should be dealt with by
the Security Council alone.

diate court move to stop the time
The theatre owners, along with
the Michigan Farm Bureau and
bowling alley proprietors, have
been fighting the time switch
through the courts.
"But we're not ruling out any
legal avenues open to us," Lon-
don said, indicating there might
be a court appeal later.

anti-daylight forces, said any ap-
peal probably would be through
the circuit court. Downs would not

Millage Fails
By Narrow
Vote Margin
Johnson, Good, Lee
Elected to Ann Arbor
Board of Education
Ann Arbor voters yesterday de-
feated a 51/2 mill school tax in-
crease and elected Paul Johnson,
Joseph T. A. Lee and Charles H.
Good to three vacancies on the
district school board.
The millage increase, designed
to obtain extra money for teach-
ers' salaries, lost by 513 votes.
Although they did not expect the
millage to pass, all the candidates
supported the millage increase
except Clark Lewis, who ran sev-
enth of the eight.
The Ann Arbor Teachers Asso-
ciation (AATA) had voted at a
mass meeting to strike next fall if
they cannot obtain a salary in-
crease. The teachers' decision fol-
lowed the first defeat of the mill-
age proposal by over 300 votes
when it was originally placed be-
fore the voters last month.
According to school board vice-
president Hazen Schumacher, peo-
ple may have voted against the
millage because they object to
high building costs, property tax-
es and teacher salaries or resent
non-property owners being allow-
ed to vote in an election to raise
Last year the board let out $9.3
million in contracts for a new high
school. Many of the voters felt a'
more constructive building pro-
grain would enable teachers' sala-
ries to be raised without the mill-E
age increase.
Since 1200 new students come
to Ann Arbor each year, Schu-
macher said, n e w programs,
schools and teachers are needed.
The failure of the millage means
that teachers salaries must stay at
present levels unless building is
cut back. Teachers may have made
it clear that they will accept
neither condition.
Johnson led the candidates with
1985 votes. Both Lee, who polled
7951 and Good, with 8027 votes,
were sponsored by the Ann Arbor's
Teachers' Association along with
Asho I. Craine, who ran fourth
with 6953.
Johnson, Lee and Good, how-
ever, represent different attitudes
toward education. During a can-
didates night last week, Good and
Lee supported changing attitudes
and programs to permit non-col-
lege bound students to study a

Draft of Housing Ordinance

Cites Lack
Of Time As
Main Factor
Denies Act Prompted
By Pending Conflict
Of Interest Ruling
Frederick C. Matthael, Sr., re-
signed from the University Board
of Regents yesterday.
Gov. George Romney accepted
his resignation "with great reluc-
tance" and named his son, Freder-"
ick C. Matthaei, Jr., a Republican
from Bloomfield Hills, to fill his
father's term until it expires Dec.
31, 1968.
The balance of the board will
remain the same, 7-1 in favor of
the Republicans.
He said he did not resign be-
cause of the pending conflict of
interest ruling by Michigan Attor-
ney General Frank Kelley as did

ident of Detroit Bank and Trust
Co. and a former member of the
Wayne State University Board of

general's ruling is to clarify con-

Matthaei, Sr., said that the
legal department of Detroit Bank
and Trust Co. had advised Hall
to resign in anticipation of the
ruling, but that he had not re-
ceived the same advice. He added
that the University's legal coun-
sel indicated that he woud not
be affected by the ruling if he
remained in the two positions.
Matthaei, Sr., recently donated
the Radrick Farms to be devel-
oped as a new University golf
course and has long had a deep
interest in Wolverine sports. He is
best known for his long, unsuc-
cessful effort to bring the Olympic
Games to Detroit.
Matthaei, Jr., 41, commented
last night that he was honored
by the appointment and "devoted
to the University and anxious to
assist in solving its problems."
Matthaei, Jr., is a member of
a group of young Detroit area ex-
ecutives who have been active in
Michigan financial circles in re-
cent years, taking control of sev-
eral important Michigan banks.
including the Bank of the Com-
monwealth of Detroit and the
Bank of Lansing.
Matthaei, Jr., the sixth new
Regent to be appointed or elected
to the eight-man board since the
fall of 1964, is president of the
Management and Capital Co. of
Birmingham and is a director of
Lear-Siegler, Inc., the Bank of
the Commonwealth, the Bank of
Lansing, and the Industrial State
Bank of Kalamazoo.

The new ordinance was drawn

cer, said several standard housing
laws had been used as guidelines,
most importantly the American
Public Health Association Propos-
ed Housing Ordinance, the Uni-
form Housing Code and the New
York State housing law.
There are several significant
items in the new ordinance dif-
fering from the state law. Living
space is described in terms of
square feet rather than cubic feet.
According to Bowler, this was to
avoid "oddly shaped rooms that
have the minimum volume but are

Administration under the Work-

This program is an outline of
plans for land use, building codes,
city financing and other city ad-

The rise in enrollment for the
spring half-term has been attri-
buted by University officials to
both the increasing popularity of
the summer session and to press-
ures of the draft.
However, the draft is probably
only a minimal factor this spring
because the actual number of male
students on campus is 6,138, 27
less than last year. The enrollment
increase is due to a 15 per cent
rise in the number of women en-
