TO BEGIN IN FALL:
Faculty Senate To Establish'
Committee on 'U' Mass Media

By SUE REDFERN
A resolution creating a study
of communications media within
the University was passed by the
Senate Assembly at its regular
April 24 meeting.
The inquiry will be conducted
by a six member committee be-
ginning next fall and is to be
composed of four faculty mem-
bers and two students..
The special panel will study
such campus communications me-
dia as The Daily; The University
Record, a newsletter published
weekly by the Office of University
Relations, the faculty-sponsored
publication, Senate Affairs; WU-
OM, the University-owned radio
station, and WCBN, the student-
operated station.
The resolution had been recom-
mended to the Assembly by the
~. Senate Advisory Committee on

University Affairs (SACUA) last
semester. The Assembly amended
the proposed resolution, which
called for a committee of four
faculty members, to include two
students, one to be appointed by
Student Government Council, and
one by the Graduate Assembly.
The Assembly resolution is a
modification of a request made last
February to SACUA by the Board
in Control of Student Publica-
tions to investigate the editorial
policies and practices of The
Daily.
The resolution stated:
"Resolved,
"That a Committee on Com-
munications Media be established
as a committee of the Assembly
with responsibility for studying the
media of communications now
employed on this campus;
"That the study Include, but
need not be limited to, The Mich-

t

C'

NEWS WIRE,

igan Daily, WUOM, WCBN, The
University Record and Senate Af-
fairs;
"That the committee consider
whether existing media are ade-
quate or new channels of com-
munication are desirable, and
whether the existing organization-
al structure of the agencies gov-
erning and operating the media
of communications and their re-
lationships to each other and to
the University community are ap-
propriate or can be improved;
"That the committee be com-
posed of four members of the Sen-
ate to ba appointed by the As-
sembly, and at least two student
members, one of whom is to be
appointed by the Student Govern-
ment Council and one by the
Graduate Student Council (now
Graduate Assembly), but that the
committee would be free tocon-
sult with members of the Univer-
sity community and of the public
without restriction."
Prof. Frank Kennedy of the
Law School, newly-elected chair-
man of SACUA, indicated that a
clear majority of the faculty As-
sembly voted for the amendment
which provides for two student
members on the communications
committee.
"It was quite clear in the meet-
ing that the Assembly thought
that there should be active stu-
dent participation in the study,"
he said.
In other action the Assembly
appointed three members to SAC-
UA for three-year terms. John
Pardach of the School of Natural
Resources, Alexander Eckstein of
the literary college, and, Joseph
N. Payne of the education school
will replace outgoing members
William Brown (former SACUA
chairman) of the dentistry school,
John Weller of the Medical School,
and Felix Moore of the School of
Public Health.
On May 1, SACUA elected Ken-
nedy, a two-year member of the
committee, as its chairman, and
Irving Copi, a one-year member,
as vice-chairman.

Sen. Robert F. Kennedy (D-NY) warned yesterday that the Democratic Party is losing the nation's youth to extreme movements of
both the right and left. Kennedy told. a Democratic fund raising dinner in Detroit that the party must now begin to shape a fresh set
of goals and programs. As Kennedy spoke, members of a local right wing group called Breakthrough and the Detroit chapter of the
Young Socialist Alliance picketed outside.

Reconsider
House Action
On Tax Plan
Postpone Second Vote
Until Next Week;
Passage in Doubt
By WALLACE IMMEN
After a procedural move yes-
terday which technically placed
the income tax portion of Gov.
George Romney's fiscal reform
package in position for another
vote, the state House of Represen-
tatives postponed action on. the
bill until next week. The package
was defeated Thursday by a 48-
57 vote.
The next round of deliberations
is now expected in the Senate next
week, which will not meet until
Tuesday. Republican leaders not-
ed yesterday that negotiations on
the 200 bills before the House
will take a great deal of the floor
time next week.
A Senate denial of an extension
of the House calendar which ex-
pired forced the House to send
all outstanding bills to the Ap-
propriations Committee, from
which they were resubmitted as
appropriations bills.
Bipartisan Tax Package
A vote is likely in the Senate
next week, however. Senate Demo-
crats have reportedly negotiated
a bipartisan tax package, but no
details have yet been announced.
House action yesterday was lim-
ited to the removal of amend-
ments which were added to the bill
by Republicans Thursday in at-
tempts to lure Democratic sup-
port. The bill is now, in effect, in
the same form as it was on Wed-
nesday. It provides for a two and
a half per cent flat rate tax. on
individuals and a six per cent
income tax on industry.
In a move which assumed tax
reform will be approved this year,
State Democratic Chairman Zol-
ton Ferency said yesterday he is
preparing for a "massive petition
drive" to place the question of a
gradated income tax, currently
forbidden in the state constitu-
tion, on the ballot.
In its present form, the equity
of the tax structure is the major
point of deliberation. The bill
would provide $579 million a year
in new revenues for the state,
but when -added to the other six
bills in the package which reduce
or repea. other taxes, the measure
would net $294 million annually.
Education Appropriations
Another major consideration in
the voting on the bill yesterday
was its effect on the state's ap-
propriations for education. Edu-
cation allocations could be rais-
ed as much as $180 million over
Romney's recently announced
"austerity" budget, which college
administrators have claimed repre-
sents a "crisis" budget.

THE ANN ARBOR POLICE department expects to have a
police relations officer at the University in the near future. The
man designated for the job is Sgt. Kenneth Klinge, police Com-
munity Relations Officer.
Conference are currently being held with the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs to determine specifically what role Klinge will play
in the University community. It is thought that he will serve as
a liason between student groups and the police department on
matters of mutual concern.
A NEW LAW JOURNAL will begin publication in the 1967-68
academic year. Focusing on the practical problems of law reform,
it will encourage student contributions and will probably make
the University the first to have two student-edited law reviews.
The journal will be financed by a gift from Jason Honigman,
J.D. '24, and it's first editor will be Prof. Frank E. Cooper.
Unlike the Law Review and other journals published at law
schools, the new journal will eventually be open for participation
by all law school students, rather than limited to those with the
highest class ranking, Francis. A. Allen Dean of the Law School,
explained.
WILLIAM SLOANE COFFIN, JR. Chaplain at Yale Univer-
sity, will speak on "Viet Nam: A Time to Speak and, Act" at a
meeting sponsored by the Interfaith Committee for a Conference..
on Religion and Peace next Tuesday. The meeting will be held
at the First Methodist Church from 11:30 to 1:15.
Sloane will be recruiting participants for "Vietnam Summer,"
a program sponsored by Martin Luther King calling for 10,000
volunteers to spend the summer in 500 communities organizing
and educating against the war in Vietnam.

MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY members of Students for
a Democratic Society (SUS) anc sympathizers attempted to pass
out anti-war leaflets at Lansing's Eastern High School yesterday
but were greeted by over 100 student protesters.
Witnesses said the high schoolers burned some of the leaflets
on the sidewalk in front of the school and attempted to tip over
a car containing SDS members. One college student had a fire-
cracker set off in his back pocket.

Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Senator Robert
F. Kennedy (D-NY) warned yes-
terday that the Democratic Party
is losing the nation's youth "to
extreme movements or to public
indifference-for their fears and
expectations have no answers in
the politics of the past."
Kennedy said that the Demo-
cratic Party must "now begin to;
shape a fresh set of goals and
programs for the American na-
tion-or be discarded as an in-
strument of national leadership."
"The future of this nation and
its politics rest now with the most
active and idealistic younger gen-
eration since the American Revo-:
lution. They look to us for a na-'

tion and a party in which they
can all take pride-a nation and a
party vigorous in purpose,
thoughtful in action, generous and
compassionate in the use of its
might and riches," Kennedy ex-
plained.
Kennedy spoke before over 3000
people at the Michigan Demo-
cratic Party's annual Jefferson-
Jackson Day dinner at Detroit's
Cobo Hall. As the senator deliv-
ered his address, members of the
Detroit chapter of the Young So-
cialist Alliance and a local right
wing extremist group called
Breakthrough picketed outside.
Inside, bumper stickers and but-
tons urging a Kennedy-Fulbright
national Democratic ticket in
1968 were being sold at a rapid
pace.

"Radicalism and reaction," Ken-
nedy continued, "the New Right
and the New Left, reflect a com-
mon theme-the desire of indi-
viduals to find some sense of in-
ner significance by sharing in a
large common purpose."
"They reveal what danger there
is in feelings of impotence and
lack of direction - polarizing
groups and individuals, creating a
nation of strangers; until even
those with whom we sympathize
glare at us across an impassable
barrier of hostility," he comment-
ed.
"We cannot run on a platform
of more of the same," Kennedy
emphasized, "for that is not
enough to conquer the conditions
which now scar and cripple our
national life.
Kennedy outlined four direc-
tions in which he felt a "new
politics" must move:
* "To find ways to liberate and
enhance the importance of indi-
vidual lives and actions; to pro-
tect ourselves against the giant
organizations, huge impersonal
corporations, and .universities as
big as cities-which threaten to
overwhelm and obliterate the im-
portance and value of individual
man.-
* "To extend and deepen gov-
ernment protection of our people,
and understand the new meaning
of justice-ending the dependency
which pervades our social pro-

grams, and which is the antithesis
of democracy."
0 "To rebuild our sense of com-
munity, of human dialogue and of
the thousand invisible strands of
common experience and purpose,
affection and respect, which tie
men to their fellows. I envision a
group of concerned and active
people, working not every four
years but every year, not at elec-
tions one day in the year but every
day, rewarded not with money but
with the knowledge that their
community and their country are
better for their having lived; they
will have made a difference."
O "Fourth and most important,
arching over all else, must be our
quest for world peace: not the
quiet of desolation nor the stabil-
ity of tyranny; but a world of
diversity and progress in which
armaments and violence give way
to the force of reason and com-
promise which are man's only
hope for survival on earth."
Kenedy said that the challenge
facing American foreign relations
was whether "the heirs of the
world's great revolution can iden-
tify not with the potentates in
their palaces or generals in their
army camps, but with peasants
and villagers in their huts and
slums; whether we will refuse to
be cast as the protectors of privi-
lege and guarantors or the bank-
rupt and dictatorial governments
of the world."

WSU Agrees to File-Burning;
Protesters Ask Voice in Policy

By MARCY ABRAMSON
Approximately 500 Wayne State
University s t u d e n t s continued
demonstrations for a third day
with a rally yesterday afternoon
in the campus mall.
Although the confidential stu-
dent files on non-academic affairs
which caused the original protest
were burned Thursday night, stu-
dents have now shifted emphasis
to demands for a voice in aca-
demic policy and selection of uni-
versity administrators.
Disappointed by what they call-
ed a bad turnout yesterday, stu-
dent leaders planned a second
rally for next Thursday in the

mall. Students and faculty who
spoke yesterday will then explain
the student demands to what
they hope will be a larger aud-
ience.
Charles Larson, president of the
WSU Student-Faculty Council and
one of three students present at
the burning of the files Thursday
night, said the records included
i n f o r m a t i o n on homosexuals,
picketing at WSU, students with
criminal records or mental dis-
turbances and publications spon-
sored by student groups.
Charging intellectual dishonesty,
Larson said WSU President Wil-
liam R. Keast denied the existence
of the files until Wednesday,

His emphasis was "on the role
of higher education in the making;
or rather the constant remaking,
of the world of tomorrow." From
studying certain trends of the
present, Zurayk predicted the
features of the future.
'Continuing Process'
First he felt that the "present
expansion of higher education will
continue and will accelerate," be-
cause of the democratization of
higher education and the increas-
ing complexity of modern life.
This last influence will lead to the
second feature which Zurayk sees
as a radical increase in size and
diversity of higher education.
Thus, education will become a
"continuing process," and also
more costly in the future. The
university will also be under morc
pressure from the government and
the taxpayers. And a gap between
the universities in the more de-
veloped countries and those in the
less developed ones will still exist.

President James P. McCormick to

nally refused to turn over the
records, Dean of Students Duncan

students held a 24-hour sit-in
Wednesday.
The decision to continue the
movement followed a 90-minute
meeting Thursday night between
Wayne administrators, including
Keast, and 12 demonstrators led
by Larson.
Six demands were presented.
"We weren't satisfied with the
way Keast answered any of the
six points," Larson said.
Six Demands
Student demands were:
" Placement of a voting stu-
dent member on all advisory com-
mittees appointed by Keast, and
on the university's budget com-
mittee.
" A state constitutional amend-
ment allowing a voting student
member on the university Board
of Governors. Until the change is
made, students are asking for a
non-voting member who would
have a voice in administration.
" Binding referendums among
students, faculty members and
administrators on u n I v e r s i t y
policies.
* Increased powers for the Stu-
dent-Faculty Council so that the
S-FC would have full access to all
information of administrative con-
cern.
Student election of the vice-
president of student affairs, dean
of students and associate dean of
students.
* Student and faculty decision-
making power over curriculum, the
university quarter system and
hiring, firing and promotion of
faculty.
Binding Referendum
As evidence of the administra-
tion's good faith in meeting the
demands, protestors also sought an
immediate binding referendum on
the question of non-graded credits.

By ROGER RAPOPORT
Editor
Special To The Daily
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - Ala-
bama Gov. Lurleen Wallace has
recommended cutting off the
state's annual appropriation to
the famed private Negro college,
Tuskegee Institute.
The University and Tuskegee
have been working together for
the past few years on an ex-
change program involving students
and faculty.
While the governor declined to
explain her decision, she did ask
the legislature to continue sup-
port to three other privately en-
dowed white colleges in the state
as part of her biennial budget re-
quest.
The state appropriation was
$670,000, or about five per cent
of the $13 million budget this
year.
Special Instruction
Tuskegee has been getting state
funds since 1943 to subsidize spe-
cial instruction. The money has
been used for graduate programs
in agriculture, engineering, home
economics and veterinary med-
icine.
Under Mrs. Wallace's budget
recommendations for the next
two years, the $1.3 million that
would have gone to Tuskegee
would be used to meet building
needs at two state-owned Negro

Ending State Aid to Tuskegee

line with the overall 3.6 per cent
cutback.
Tuskegee President L. H. Foster
said he was shocked at the dis-
closures. "We had the usual con-
tacts with the committee and the
executive offices and there was no
indication of anything along this
line."
The governor's office declined
comment on the cut and suggested
that reporters "check on how
much federal aid Tuskegee gets
before" they "ask about the state
budget cut. The whole thing will
be brought out in public hearings
in due time. That's our only state-
ment."
Six state officials have been sit-
ting on the 25-man Tuskegee
board of trustees since the state
began giving the school aid in
1943. Former Alabama governor
George Wallace sat on the Tus-

kegee board' and frequently boast-
ed of the state's aid of Tuskegee
as evidence of its deep concern
for the welfare of Negroes.
There was some speculation
that the budget cuts reflected dis-
enchantment with students at the
Negro school who have broken
windows in downtown Tuskegee in
recent months. One of the inci-
dents came after a Negro student
was killed by a white man and the
other came after the same man
was acquitted on a self-defense
plea.
Across the state Alabama edu-
cators were scheduling emergency
meetings to discuss the general
budget cut. "We've never had a
shock like this," said one college
spokesman. "We can't operate on
the governor's proposed alloca-
tions, and we refuse to accept it."
