What's New
At 764-1817





Construction on an addition to the General Library is sched-
uled to begin in the summer of 1966, according to John McKevitt,
assistant to the vice-president in charge of business and finance.
McKevitt said yesterday that the addition is planned to open in
the spring of 1968.
Fraternities will open their houses for inspection by the 1418
registered rushees at 2 p.m. today to begin what has been de-
scribed as the biggest rush in the history of the Interfraternity
Council. Rush registration will re-open Monday as men's fall
rush continues throughout the week.
Despite a shortage of student employes in the residence hall
system, the University libraries are not short on help, said
Frederick H. Wagman, director of University libraries. He had
not heard of any difficulty in hiring student employes. He said
that the only help shortages occur when the students have the
least time, and use the libraries the most, ie, at exam time.
Student Government Council has offered funds to the group
pressing for low cost housing for expert consulation. The Federa-
tion of Cooperative Housing will provide the consultation. Mon-
day night at 7:30 this group will hold a meeting on the second
floor of the SAB where they will discuss how to move as fast as
possible toward their objectives.
"A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" is
the title of this year's Soph Show to be performed on Nov. 18-20
at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre. The cast includes Jim Hos-
biem as Pseudolus, Larry Glover as Lycus, Marcia Heuven as
Philia, and Bill Hunt as Miles.
The University has been ranked sixth among the nation's
colleges and universities by Poor's "Register of Corporations,
Directors and Executives" in the number of corporate executives
and directors who are alumni. The University, with 1,329 top-
executive alumni, follows Harvard (4,135), Yale (2,729), Prince-
ton (1,458), University of Pennsylvania (1,433) and New York
University (1,342).
Only six girls have dropped out of sorority rush, leaving
approximately 340 to go on to "second set," which begins today.
.4Robert S. Ford, associate dean of Rackham School of
Graduate Studies, has predicted 120,000 foreign students will be
attending college in the United States by 1970. If the University
maintains its present per cent of the total, 4.6 per cent, it will
have 4,800 foreign students on campus, as opposed to the present
number of 1265. Ford suggests a wider distribution of the students
among the smaller universities; at present 45 per cent of the
y students are concentrated in 40 universities. In the face of a
rising number of applications, Ford asserts that colleges and
universities must maintain high admission standards and admit
only those students with adequate preparation in English, to
ensure academic success.
The University Activities Center is going to take over the
total planning of the International Week, the last week in
October. Although it was planned jointly in previous years with
the International Student Association and Student Government
Council, ISA has dissolved, and SGC has limited the functions of
its international committee to concern over only the problems
of the international student. Both organizations claim this new
arrangement of UAC's concern with activities and SGC's with
the students' problems will eliminate much of the overlapping of
organization that has occurred in the past.

Four large color prints of the British frigate, Java, and the
American frigate, Constitution, which clashed in naval battles
during the War of 1812, form a rare set now displayed at the
University's Clements Library.
A University co-ed reports that recently she received a bogus
phone call from a man who said he was taking a socio-sexual
survey. Upon calling the Survey Research Institute to ask about
the call, she was informed that research organizations never
take this type of survey over the telephone.

Indian Losses
Admitted To
Be Mounting
Conflict's HeaViest
Fighting Threatens To
InVolVe Eastern Front
NEW DELHI (AP)-The heaviest
fighting of the India-Pakistan
conflict was swirling across the
northern front yesterday and
spreading of the struggle to east-
ern sectors appeared imminent.
Pakistan claimed India's army is
now "wholly" on the defensive.
An Indian spokesman said "very
fierce battles-the heaviest battles
so far" were being fought in the
Sialkot and Lahore region of
northern Pakistan, where each
side struggled to protect its cities
against the other's tanks. Sialkot
is at thetnorthern end of the front
60 miles north of Lahore.
Prime Minister Lal Bahadur
Shastri warned India may have
to take counter measures in east-
ern areas of the subcontinent
against what he called provocative
Pakistani air raids against stra-
tegic Indian installations in east
There has been no large scale
ground fighting in the east but
the Indian government made clear
it will fight to halt what it says
are Pakistani threats to air fielcis
and supply routes leading to In-
dian units on the Red China front.
These threats include air raids
and what authorities in eastern
India said was a drop by Pakis-
tani parachutists Friday.
All in all, it was a gloomy pic-
ture for U.N. Secretary-General
U Thant, who arrived in Bombay,
India, and is to fly to New Delhi
today on the last leg of his paace
mission. His just-ended talks in
Pakistan generally were regarded
in New Delhi as unpromising.
Shastri said he wants peace and

nan said India does not regard
itself at war with Pakistan. But
the government made claims that

The Defense Ministry, in the
first announcement of casualties,
said 1,472 Pakistanis were killed
in the period Aug. 5 to Sept. 8.
The bodies of 803 Pakistanis were
picked up, the ministry said, and
198 were captured.
Equipment, losses were put at
191 Pakistani tanks and 33 planes
destroyed, compared with 35 In-
dian tanks and 23 planes knocked
No newsman has been able to
get close enough to the battlefield
to verify any of these figures. But
it was unusual for New Delhi to
admit the loss of that many of its
own tanks and planes.

MOSCOW ()-The Soviet Un-
ion broadcast its readiness yes-
terday to use its good offices to
settle the Indian-Pakistani con-
flict. But at the same time it gave
its full support to the United Na-
tions peacemaking effort.
To emphasize its interest in
ending the conflict, the govern-
ment took the unusual step of
calling a news conference to read
out letters sent by Premier Alexei
N. Kosygin to Prime Minister Lal
Bahadur Shastri of India and
President Mohammed Ayub Khan
of Pakistan.
The letters of Sept. 4 appealed
to both countries to end the con-
flict and settle their disputes
60 Correspondents
About 60 correspondents were
called to the foreign office to
hear the letters read, first in
Russian, then in English.
Earlier in the day, a letter
from Shastri replying to Kosygin
was delivered to the premier
thanking him for the proffer of
good offices but apparently hold-
ing any request that they be used
at this time.
Instead, both India and the So-
viet Union appeared.to feel that

As :n the past, the Soviet pre-
mier blamed the United States for
stepping up tension in Asia and
indicated "outside sources" were
not averse to seeing the India-
Pakistan struggle escalate into
more bitter war. The letters to
Shastri and Ayub Khan, nearly
identical, said:
"The trend toward further es-
calation of the military conflict
further heightens the tense sit-
uation in southern and southeast
Asia created by American imper-
ialist aggression.


At last year's Ann Arbor police
banquet, Police Chief R. J. Gain-
sley opened a brief talk by say-
ing, "I want to compliment our
parking enforcement officers on
the fine job they are doing."
He proceeded to produce the
receipt for a ticket he had payed
that afternoon.
His wife had parked her car
overtime on N. State St. while at
the beauty parlor .
Mrs. Gainsley's ticket was one
of only 117,655 parking tickets
written out in Ann Arbor last
U Students Too
And between 30 and 40 per cent
of those tickets went to Univer-
sity students.
The offenses ranged from park-
ing motorcycles between parked
cars ($5) to meter violations ($1).
The basic problem, only 9,300
parking spaces in the campus
area, compounded with such stu-
dent dilemmas as two-hour classes
with - one-hour meters makes the
situation something of a daily

don't have as much trouble with
students as we do with towns-
Parking enforcement in Ann
Arbor is so complex that even a
doctoral thesis would hardly do it
First there are three motor-
cycle men who patrol university
streets. They work for and are
paid by the City of Ann Arbor.
Then there are three meter
maids who walk the streets
checking meters. Then there are
several other officers who police
university lots with compact cars.
The meter maids and lot polic-
ers work for the Ann Arbor Police
Department. Their salary, how-
ever, come out of funds paid by
the Board of Regents to the city
for policing parking lots.
Confusing Rules
"Sometimes it gets confusing,"
admits meter maid Pat Hoyt. Cer-
tain lots allow certain permits.
There are Student Publication,
Staff Metered, Loading, Hospital,
Service, Guest and other permits.
A meter maid cannot ticket in

located at such places as the
Union, on Geddes near Forest, by
the Frieze building or near Mason
To park legally in a normal
parking space, a police officer
Jan Sumola suggests, "Imagine
you are driving a Mercury wagon."
"We used to have 10 or 15 cycles
lined up angularly against the
curb," he went on. "But it didn't
work. Once I saw a line of 21
cycles topple like dominoes."
How fair are the police in is-
suing tickets?

"Really, I think everyone gets
a pretty fair break," says meter
maid Hoyt.
For those offenders who don't
think they got a fair break, there
is recourse. Every Friday morning,
Ann Arbor Police Traffic Lieu-
tenant Sloop holds a hearing for
irate violators to review cases.
Most are resolved there. A few
go into the court of Municipal
Judge Francis L. O'Brien. Judge
O'Brien considers such claims as
