While noting that the Univeri-
sity has been engaged in long
range planning, for years, Lesch
mentioned that the newer budg-
eting procedures place more em-
phasis in this area than the Uni-
versity currently does.
Because of this increased em-
phasis on long-term planning, he
said there may be possibilities of
beginning "five-year plans" for
University expansion. Such plans
could take into account desired
goals for the University, funds
available to it and then combine
the two to find how much money
should be requested from the Leg-
islature each year.
The University's newest food service facility, the North

Robert C. Schnitzer, director of the Professional Theater
Program, yesterday denounced rumors that the PTP would stop
producing plays in the fall if the Association of Producing
Artists stopped performing at the University. Schnitzer said,
"PTP is firmly committed to a permanent and continuing policy
of sponsoring a distinguished repertory company yearly. If APA
proves unable to re-assemble after' its suspension this winter, then
PTP will continue the Fall Festivals of repertory with other
notable troupes. But first we want to give every opportunity to
APA to re-group its forces."

universities on a round-robin basis.

show coordinators are predicting great success.
Howard Abrams, a member of the United States National
Student Association, revealed to Student Government Council
' last night that there will be a shift in emphasis in USNSA activi-
ties. Abrams, a student at the University of Chicago Law School .
atnd, a guest speaker at last night's SGC meeting, said that
USNSA will be placing greater stress upon "the internal affairs
of college campuses." He said that there will be increased efforts
in the field of tutorial work and related campus projects. "This
is not a swing away from civil rights. Rather it is merely a shift
in priorities," Abrams said.

dent for Student Affairs Richard
L. Cutler drafted a letter explain-
ing the University's position on the
problem of student housing. The
full text of the demands and the
administrators' reply follows.
1) We request that Vice-Presi-
'dent Pierpont prepare a state-
ment on the use of federal funds
to build student housing. In ad-!
dition, we request a policy state-
ment on how the University will
aid student and student-faculty
non-profit corporations . . . in
their attempts to build low-cost
housing. Specifically, can land on
North Campus be sold to such
non-profit corporations ...?
2) We request that the Presi-

pus Housing publish an interim
report immediately ...
3) We request that the Presi-
dent's Commission hold open hear-
ings within the next two weeks

student opinion be more involved
in the planning of housing for
5) We request that the Uni-
versity make public its policy to-
ward high-rise apartment build-

before being finished.
This is in response to your se-
ries of requests concerning our
mutual interest in solving the
housing problems faced by Uni-
versity of Michigan students. May
we state at the outset that all
of the issues you raise were dis-
cussed in a meeting between us
and Mr. Robert Goyer of the
Graduate Student Council, Mr.

dent Government Counci and Mr.
Robert Johnston of The Michigan

In an unprecedented and dra-

presidents issued a major state-'

As a result of the statement,
issued jointly by Vice-President
for Student Affairs Richard Cut-
ler and Vice-President for Busi-
ness and Finance Wilbur K. Pier-
pont, the probability of a dramatic
student protest over housing-such
as a sleep-out-has been greatly
reduced, according to Stewart
Gordon, '66, chairman of the Voice
Gordon, upon receipt of the
statement, said that he was very
pleased with its proposals, but
cautioned that its acceptance
would be determined, democrat-
ically, by those students present
at a rally to be held today at noon
on the Diag.
Yesterday's statement by Cutler
and Pierpont was the culmination
of several weeks of meetings by
Voice and other groups, which had
attempted to organizer a major
student protest against what, they
considered were overly-expensive
and inadequate facilities for stu-
On Tuesday afternoon repre-
sentatives of Student Government
Council and Graduate Student
Council had met with Cutler and
Pierpont, and Cutler had agreed to
the establishment of a student ad-
visory committee which would
participate actively in the plan-
ning of future housing projects.
The results of the afternoon
conference were presented that
night at a general meeting of the
Housing Committee by Russell
Linden,;'67, who had represented
SGC at the conference. In re-
sponse to this report the general
meeting drafted a statement list-
ing five demands.
Although Cutler, and Pierpont
thought that the issues in the
VOICE statement had been cover-
ed in the Tuesday afternoon
meeting, they answered each of
the five demands, as far as they
were able, in some detail.
They assured the committee
that "The University's general
policy on the use of federal funds
is . . . to utilize every possible re-
source to solve our housing prob-

in this area, their statement said
that the University "is specifically

Forces of the two nations were
reported battling on the dusty
northern plains of India and Paki-
stan along routes conquerors have
used for centuries. India claimed
it had destroyed 75 U.S.-made
Pakistani tanks in the past 24
hours and now has knocked out
a total of 114.
Pakistan claimed all Indian
drives into Pakistani territory had
been stopped, and 10 Indian tanks
Both sides reported throwing in
more tanks and jet fighters. Un-
der these conditions there was
widespread doubt in New Delhi
that Thant could arrange a quick
cease-fire. There appeared to be
few in the Indian capital who

the meaning behind Communist
China's repeated avowals of sup-
port for Pakistan and its con-
demnation of India as an aggres-
Officials in Washington and
London voiced similar fears of
Red China's intentions.
India followed up this drive
Wednesday by launching twin at-
tacks on a front near Pakistan's
city of Sialkot, 60 miles north of
Lahore; and 600 miles to the south
in southeast Pakistan. The In-
dians claimed the latter drive
penetrated six miles and captured
the town of Gadra.
Now the main battle appeared
to be on the Lahore front near
the Pakistani city of Kasur and
the Indian city 'of Ferozepore,
where Pakistan claims to have
made a penetration of Punjab.
Kasur is 30 miles south of La-
hore. Ferozepore is 10 miles inside
India, 40 miles south of Lahore.
In Washington, Mike Mansfield
(D-Montana) proposed yesterday
a pledge by the United States
and other nations to work through
the United Nations Security Coun-
cil to adjust foreign aid programs
to help restore peace between In-
I dia and Pakistan.
Work on Research Projects
By MICHAEL HEFFER
The zoology department is tak-
ing part in a National Science
Foundation program to bring un-
dergraduates in direct contact
with research in the sciences.
Prof.. David Shappirio, coordi-
nator of the NSF program for zoo-
logy, said "it gives perspective
about the real world of science,
difficult to get in a formal course."
He said the students involved,
most of whom continue in re-
search, "become associated with

full time. (50 to 60 hours weekly).
For an academic year the stipend
is $200, for a summer it is $600.
To be accepted to the program
the student must submit an ap-
'plication to the department.
"Most of the students involved
are juniors or seniors," Shap-
pirio said, and "they usually have
ideas about work to be done in
their fields of concentration, and
know professors doing research."
The student can work on an
"on-going faculty project or a
semi-independent problem," Shap-
pirio said. "The students work in
