What's New
At 764-1817
Director of Residence Halls Eugene Haun revealed yesterday
that the "freeze" on residence hall room changes will end Tues-
day, Sept. 7 After that day students may apply through their
staff men to have rooms changed.
The residence hall system will now reimburse Jewish students
who buy Kosher Saturday dinners at B'nai B'rith Hillel Founda-
tion. The new plan, supported by Vice-President for Student
Affairs Richard Cutler, had long been urged by Hillel leaders.

The University Activities Center will be opening a new room
in the MUG to be called the "Heritage Room." This third room
in the MUG will be set aside for professors to bring their classes
and for students and professors to meet and talk on an informal
basis. The UAC hopes to be able to supply free coffee to professors
who bring their classes to the "Heritage Room."

Five-hundred University men, primarily freshmen, registered
for fall fraternity rush at the University Activities Center
Activities Day, according to Interfraternity Council President
Richard Hoppe, '66. "This figure represents more than half of
the usual fall rush sign up," Hoppe said. Regular rush registration
begins September 7 at various locations on campus. "We expect
approximately 1300 to register, representing 500 more than last
fall's total registration," Hoppe added.
The latest Student Government Council ticket sales policy
was decided recently: By 3 p.m., nine days preceding a concert,
every housing unit must submit its requests for block tickets to
SGC. The maximum number of tickets allotted to each housing
unit is based on the size of the unit according to a schedule
worked out by SGC, with a maximum number of 3100. The
remaining tickets, plus any left over from block sales, will go on
sale on the Monday preceding the concert. Four tickets will be
allotted to each person.
Ignorance Is bliss, even the most educated ignorance. A
recent report by Prof. James Swinehart and Prof. John Kirscht
of the school of public health, analyzing undergrads who know
the dangers of smoking but continue it, reports that the smoker
merely develops psychological adjustments to the awareness of
the hazards. A typical adjustment reported in the study: "Yes,
I am threatened, but I'm going to be drafted and sent to Viet
Nam, so why worry about lung cancer?"
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has reportedly contacted
student leaders here and warned them that draft card-burning
demonstrations are "in the air" and to be vigilant against them,
a reliable student source said yesterday. No FBI official was
available for comment. The rumor also reported that the FBI
asked the student leaders to try to create student support
against such demonstrations, now illegal under a new law.

This week will be marked by student demonstrations for
better housing, sources at the Voice Political Party retreat
reported last night. Two diag rallies (Tuesday and Wednesday
noon), a mass meeting (Tuesday night), workshops and speeches
(Wednesday and Thursday nights), and complaints to Vice-
Presidents Richard Cutler and Wilbur Pierpont (Wednesday
morning) are part of the group's plan. If the two administrators
do not reply to the complaint by Friday, additional action will
be taken according to the group's timetable. A mass "sleep-in"
on the diag is also being discussed.
Administration officials are alarmed at the way local labor
shortages are delaying University building projects by an average
of several months. The officials, however, are sticking to their
original timetable for completion of residence hall construction
on North Campus. They predict 600 units will be available in
Cedar Bend Housing I by next fall, with 600 additional units
in Cedar Bend II constructed by the winter term. A dormitory
complex, Bursley Hall will open with 1200 spaces in the fall of

Bitter. Raids
May Lead To
All-Ohut War
Pakistani Units Move
Through Indian Lines
As Air Battles Rage
NEW DELHI (A')-India and
Pakistan unleashed tanks and jet
fighters yesterday in bitter battles
that appeared to be escalating
rapidly toward all-out war.
Cease-fire appeals from abroad
were spurned and both govern-
ments warned their civilian popu-
lations to prepare for the worst.
For India, the worst news of the
day came from the Chhamb sector
of southwest Kashmir where, an
Indian official announcement said,
a Pakistani tank-infantry attack
supported by jet fighters broke
through Indian lines despite dam-
aging attacks by Indian planes.
Fierce Fighting
A defense ministry spokesman
said bitter fighting was still under
way, and that the Pakistanis had
not been stopped in their drive
northeast, apparently toward im-
portant Indian roads and com-
munications lines.
The Indian Defense Ministry
said it did not know how the
Pakistanis got across the river-
whether by boat or by fording. It
seemed apparent, however, an im-
portant Indian line of defense had
been penetrated.
The Pakistani air force said
one of its American-made jet
fighters was shot down over Paki-
stan proper yesterday by an In-
dian Soviet-make MIG21 in the
second of two air battles on the
Kashmir front.
The Indians have been using
British-made jets in Kashmir, and
this was the first time they were
reported flying the delta wing-
supersonic MIG21 obtained from
the Soviet Union.
An air force spokesman said
an F86 Sabre was crippled by fire
from one of four MIGs and that,
the pilot bailed out. He was res-
cued by a Pakistani helicopter and
returned to."base.
The spokesman told newsmen
that at 3:30 p.m. an undeter-
mined number of Indian Hunter
jet fighters escorted by the four
MIGs "attacked our troop posi-
tions in the Azad-Pakistani Kash-
mir area."
"Pakistan air force F86s were
dispatched to intercept the In-
dian force," the spokesman said.
"When the Sabres were returning
to base and after they had crossedj
into Pakistani territory they were1
attacked by four Indian MIGs."

Other Peace
Moves Have
.Not Worked
Communist China
Unexpectedly Backs
Pakistan in Dispute
United Nations Security Council
last night called for an immedi-
ate cease-fire in Kashmir and
demanded the withdrawal of In-
dian and Pakistani troops which
have crossed the 1949 UN cease-
fire line.
The vote was unanimous on a
prO osal put forward by the six
elected members of the 11-na-
tion council.
Secretary-General U Thant was
directed to report back within
three days on the implementation
of the resolution.
The aim of the council was to
reinforce an appeal by the secre-
tary-general which already had
been rejected in effect by Indian
Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shas-
tri. Just before the vote India's
Ambassador Gopalaswami Parth-
asarathi indicated the council's
appeal also would be turned down.
Simple Issue
"The council does not seem to
be facing up to the simple issue
of aggression," he said. "A cease-
fire is a desirable objective, but
it can come only after Pakistan
has been condemned as an ag-
Pakistani Ambassador Amjad
Ali denied a long list of charges
made by the Indian representa-
tive. He said India was the first
to cross the cease-fire line in

ed Amiad All, Reaction to the rapidly-escalat-
ing warfare came from an ex-
pected source and an unexpected
one-U.S. and Communist China.
Communist China said early
this morning it supports "Paki-
stan's counter-attack in self-de-
eeagainst India's armed prov-
nflocations" in Kashmir.
The official Peking People's
Daily said "under such circum-

New and returning students
oW found a much-improved situation
in the residence halls, as com-
stu- pared to the overcrowding of last
over year. Unlike last year, there were
of- only 440 students assigned to con-
°f- verted rooms and there was no
oms, need for the temporary housing
last that had been instituted in past
ar. years.

Other adjustments in Univer-
sity personnel were made last
week within the ranks of admin-
istrators. Gordon Van Wylen was
appointed dean of the College of
Education, replacing the late
Stephen Atwood.
J. Duncan Sells, previously as-
sociate dean of Oakland Univer-
sity in Rochester, Mich., was ap-
pointed director of student activi-
ties and organizations. John Bing-
ley, who has served the Office of
Student Affairs since 1954, resign-
ed to take a position at Farm-
ington State College in Maine.
