Medical School Facilitiesj
Might Limit Enrollment









First of Four Parts
The state budget problems are
hindering a large-scale program
to fill a medical education "gap"
in the state. Reduced allocations
will prevent planned expansion of
University Medical School facili-
ties and may hold down enroll-
ment of the class of 1971.
"It won't be easy, to live with
this year's appropriation," Alex-
ander Barry, associate dean of the
Medical School, noted recently,
"but while we can't increase our
programs greatly, we are determ-
ined not to allow them to de-
teriorate either."
The Medical School administra-
tion will meet next week as soon
as the University budget is final-
ized by the Regents on Monday
or Tuesday.
A class of 205, increased by five
over last year's admissions, has
already been accepted, but if

enough facilities and funds be-
come available, an additional five
applicants will be permitted to en-
roll in the school this fall.
Whatever their decision, 210 has
been set as the absolute capacity'
of present facilities. The opening
of the only new teaching facility
-the Medical Science II building
-is scheduled for soring, 1969,
and has already bean included
in planning to meet this year's
enrollment increase.
Medical Science IT will provide
several new lecture halls and lab-
oratories, 100 indivitidal student
study carrels and a'large increase
in classroom space.
"To increase our enrollment will'
require the addition of both clini- >
cal and basic science facilities
which we can't get without en-
riched state or federal capital out-
lay allotments," Barry explained.1
This year, the Legislature al-
lotted $4.4 million for renovations
at the University Hospital and for

continuing construction of Medi-
cal Science II.
Delayed this year, but planned
for the near future are a $25 mil-
lion, 500-bed hospital and a $5.5
million clinic and classroom build-
Even though federal agpncy
grants can provide some of the
money necessary for beginning
these buildings, their construction
is dependentupon improved state
revenue resources. These have not
increased even with the iraugura.
Lion of a new state inconm tax
program this year.
Backing up the fiat y4 ar pro-
gram will be the Upjohn Center
for Continuing Medisal Education,
soon to begin construction and the
$9.5 million C. S. Mott Children's
Hospital, to be completed in 1971.
Both these facilities are funded
by private donations to the $55
Million campaign and will allow
more advanced clinical studies.
Projected clinical and classroom
additions will allow the Universi-
ty Medical School to admit a first
year class of 250 students by 1976.

for expenses incurred by state agencies in last week's Detroit

However, majority Senate Republicans indicated reluct-

recognized that "A major task
facing Michigan state agen-

various cities which suffered
"civil disturbances" last week.
"Assistance in line with the ex-
isting programs of the various
agencies must be carried forward,"
the resolution added.
However, "Before final decisions
can be made as to areas of aid,
the scope and magnitude of the
various projects, both physical and
financial, will have to be determ-

developed and adjudicated," the
resolution said.
Cost Report
The resolution, which also must
pass the House, requires that a
report "reflecting any and all
costs" be filed with Budget Di-
rector Glenn S. Allen.
Senate Majority Leader Emil
Lockwood (R-St. Louis) went be-
fore the GOP caucus to urge pass-
age this week of the cigarette tax
boost, but said he "didn't get the.
kind of reception I had hoped for."
"The general sentiment of the
Republican caucus is not to take
action until some time in the fu-
ture," he said.
Rash of Spending
Lockwood said the caucus felt
passage of the tax boost could pre-
cipitate a "rash of spending" and
felt passage should wait until the
fall session which begins Oct. 10.
"The longer we delay the more
possibility we will have to tag at
an exorbitant level," Lockwood
said. "I hope I can prevail on
them before Thursday" (the

Say, Rominey
Delayed Call
For Troops
Atty.-Gen. Clark Says
Governor Asked Aid
8 Hours After Claim
Ramsey Clark said yesterday that
the first time Gov. George Rom-
ney asked for federal troops to
help put down rioting in Detroit
was nearly 11 a.m. Monday July
24-about eight hours after Rom-
ney says he called for troops.
Clark, at a news conference, de-
tailed the events of the Monday
morning that led to sending fed-
eral troops into riot-torn.Detroit,
and prefaced his remarks by say,
ing it is "with real reluctance
that I get into this matter at all."
Clark said his statement was
made necessary to refute charges
by Romney that the federal gov-
emment had dawdled in sending
Army paratroopers to Detroit.
Late Sunday
Clark said his first contact with
any Michigan officials was 11:55
p.m. Sunday when Detroit mayor
Jerome Canavagh had called him
and informed the attorney gen-
eral "he considered the situation
very dangerous."
Clark said he immediately call-
ed Army Secretary Stanley Resor
and apprised him of the situation.
- At 2:40 a.m., Clark said, Rom
ney telephoned and termed the
situation "very bad," with 80 un-
tended fires, and looting. Romney
at that time said he could have
3,000 National Guardsmen on the
streets in the morning but that he
thought he might need 5,000 U.S.
Army troops.
Clark said Romney asked about
what type of telegram may be
sent to request troops and Clark
said "I told him he need not wor-
r yabout procedures at that time."
Would Alert Troops
Clark said he could take care
of alerting federal troops and im-
mediately thereafter called Resor.
Clark said that about 3:00 a.m.
he called President Johnson, who
asked to be kept advised.
Clark said Romney told him at
5:15 a.m. that rather than take
a chance, he would need federal
help. The attorney general then
said he needed a written request
for troops and the governor must
be prepared to state that there
was an insurrection in Michigan,
or violence which he could not
suppress, Clark's account con-
At 6:50 a.m., Clark said, Rom-
ney called back saying there was
new looting, new fires and he
didn't know whether the situation
could be contained.
Read Telegram
Two hours and five minutes
later, at 8:55 a.m., he said, Rom-
ney called back and read a 1/
page telegram which was a state-
ment recommending the use of
federal troops.
At 9:35 a.m., Clark briefed
President Johnson, and 10 min-

The University of Texas student
body recently voted in a new con-
stitution which was approved by
the regents and goes into effect
in the fall.
The constitution resulted from
more than a year's study and
work by the members of the Stu-
dents' Assembly. The initial dis-
cussions on revamping the con-
stitution grew out of concern for
the ineffectiveness and ineffi-
ciency of the previous student
government structure which per-
mitted much overlap of functions
between the Students' Association
and the Student Union.
