'U' Towers' Eight-Month Lease
Brings 'Enthusiastic' Response

Student response to University
Towers' new eight-month lease
policy has been "extremely enthu-
siastic," according to Robert Ward,
"U" Towers manager.
"All the comments we've re-
ceived have been favorable," Ward
said. "In fact, the reaction has
been so good that we're putting
on two extra girls to show apart-
ments. For the last three days,
we've been signing contracts at a

phenomenal rate-about ten a'
Student spokesmen on housing
showed similar enthusiasm. Tom
Van Lente, president of the Stu-

"Earlier in the year, we were
working on rating landlords," Van

NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV, center, claimed last night that he and the Soviet government engineered the election of John F. Kennedy,

Romney Declares U.S. Role
Replaces Vietnamese Effort

NEW YORK (M - Nikita
Khrushchev, in retirement, claims
the Kremlin thwarted Richard
M. Nixon's election in 1960, and
"made" John F. Kennedy presi-
dent of the United States. He
calls the former Republican vice
president a "good for nothing
an unprincipled puppet."
The former Russian premier
says Nixon sought to gain votes
by obtaining the release of U-2
pilot Francis Gary Powers from
a Soviet prison. Khrushchev
maintains the Russians saw
through the plan and ignored
Nixon's request.
In a National Broadcasting Co.
television program Tuesday night,
Khrushchev also was quoted as
assessing President Dwight D.
Eisenhower as a good man, but
too easily swayed by advisers.
Praises Kennedy
Khrushchev reserves his great-
est praise for Kennedy, and says
were he alive today "he would
never let his country get into
such a sticky situation as it now
is in Vietnam."
Speaking from his dacha, or
country house, near Moscow,
Khrushchev recounts a conver-
sation he said he had with Ken-
nedy in Vienna in 1961:
"I told him, 'The fact that you
became president was due to us.
We made you president.' He
asked me how should he under-
stand that. I said, I'll tell you
haYou collected 200,000 more
votes than Nixon. Nixon asked us
for Powers, the U-2 pilot, to be
released . . and if we had done
it, he would have received half
million votes just for that . . . be-
cause that would have shown that
Nixon could have established bet-
ter contacts with the Soviet Un-
They Guessed Plans
df nBut we guessed his plans.
We decided not to give him any
answer, and just to give it to
you when you moved into the
White House. So what do you
think of that?' I asked Kennedy.
"He said, I agree with you
entirely. If you had not acted
the way you did, Nixon would
definitely have got his 200000
"So I said, 'that is the way I
voted, for you and our votes pulled
you over the line.' And this is a
fact. And Nixon wanted it. There
were all sorts of hints.

"Lodge, Nixon's running mate.
told me straight out, 'Don't you
pay any attention to what we say
during the elections. It will all
be thrown overboard and we will
have an excellent relationship
with you.' But I didn't believe it."

Parade's editor, Jess Gorkin,
said he made contract for the
story some time ago through a
Russian newsman whom he did
not identify.
Speaking of President Eisen-
hower, Khrushchev is quoted as
saying through an interpreter:

American presidents whom I met,
the comparison would obviously
not be in favor of Eisenhower ...

Registration Policy;

A student proposal on voter-reg-
istration policies and procedures
in Ann Arbor was the topic of
debate at the first meeting of
the City-Student Relations Com-
mittee yesterday.
Present at the meetings were .
representatives from Student Gov-
ernment Council, Graduate Assem-
bly and the Student Advisory
Board on Housing. City officials
attending were. Guy C. Larcom,
Jr., city administrator; Donald J.

ministrator; Peter Forsythe, city

to follow opinions issued in 1940
and 1955 by the state attorney
Uncertain Residence
The opinions state in part,
"Where the student has no in-
tention of returning home but is
uncertain as to the place of his
xuture residence, it is generally
held that he nay vote at the col-
lege town."
According to Roy Ashmall,
Grad Assembly president, the
main problem students have had
in the past in getting reg.. ered
involves answering a question on
where they intend to go after
finishing college. "If they say they
do not know where they will go,
it is assumed they plan to return
home, and many students have
not been registered because of
this," he said.
However, Bentley said at the
meeting that the city clerk's office
has lately initiated a more liberal
policy, and in general already fol-
lows a policy of registering stu-
dents who are unsure of their des-
tination after graduation.
'Appreciable Length'
The opinion of the attorney
general also states that "Where it
is evident that a student does not
propose to return home but in-
tends to remain at the place where
the college is located for an ap-
preciable length of time, he may
vote at the place of his college
The student proposal stated in
regard to this that "Since the 'in-,.
tent' mentioned cannot be determ-
ined objectively, past performance
becomes the determining factor.
'By Virtue of Appearance'
"If the individual has lived
within the state of Michigan con-
tinually for six months, within
the city of Ann Arbor for 30 days,
is at least 21 years of age and a
United States citizen, it should be
presumed that by virtue of his ap-
pearance in person to register that
.the individual intends to remain
in Ann Arbor for a period of time
following that day."
However, Forsythe said he did
not feel he could direct the city
clerk to follow this proposal in
view of the state law which says
that "No elector shall be deemed
to have gained or lost a residence
while a student at any institution
of learning."
The students pointed up the
ambiguity in the law, which "de-
.nies the student the right to gain
but does not preclude them from
gaining residence."

In a separate statement, Rom-
ney blamed "the national press
and the lack of familiarity with
me as an individual and as a can-
didate" for a drop in his standing
in opinion polls. But he wouldn't
say whether he is a candidate.
He said "press statements, ar-
ticles and some people in public
life" have set standards for him
which are higher than those for
other potential candidates. With-
out naming anyone, he said some
people are saying that he must
win endorsement as a presidential
candidate from a majority of the
nation's Republican governors.
"Even Gen. Eisenhower didn't
have that degree of endorsement,"
Romney said.

The field of aging is complex,
and finding an adequate supply
of informed and skilled person-
nel has become something of an
pressing problem in itself.
Seeling solutions to this prob-
lem will be a major part of the

ence on Aging, to be held here
July 23-26.
