At 764-1817
The Daily has been presented with the Heywood Broun
Award of the American Newspaper Guild, symbolic of excellence
in collegiate journalistic enterprise. Daily Editor Robert Johnston
accepted the award last night at a banquet marking the 75th
anniversary of The Daily.
William Steude, director of student-community relations,
said yesterday that the proposed motorcycle ordinance is not on
the agenda for Monday night's Ann Arbor City Council meeting,
and is still of a very preliminary nature. Steude emphasized that
his office has reasonable assurance that student opinion will be
consulted before the passage of any ordinance.

The nine remaining members of_ the central committee of
Musket '66 were named last night by general co-chairmen Deanne
Yek, '66, and Richard Rattner, '67. Miss Yek announced the fol-
lowing chairmanships: Cece Smith, '66, treasurer; Jeff Howard,
'68, and Sheldon Orloff, '66, tickets and ushers; Steve Goldman,
'66, advertising; Bruce Anderson, '67, program layout; and Gail
Miller, '67, technical director.
The first rehearsal for the Musket production, "West Side
Story," will be held Tuesday, Sept. 28.
A petition advocating a rent strike because of exhorbitant
electric bills has been signed by 75 per cent of the residents of
the 80-unit Mapleridge Manor at 2230 Dexter. According to Larry
Engelmann, Grad, the residents claim they are being charged for
elecrticity consumed by air conditioners, a cost which the land-
lord had previously advertised he would pay.
David H. Ponitz, president of the newly formed Washtenaw
Community College, said yesterday that he supports the concept
of an "open door institution," which accepts students regard-
less of their academic backgrounds. He also favors "aggressive
recruitment" of students from culturally deprived and minority
group backgrounds combined with an extensive program of coun-
selling to help them succeed.

Robert S. Ford, associate dean of the Horace H. Rackham
School of Graduate Studies, expressed the concern among uni-
versities about the rising numbers of foreign students expected
to soar to 102,000 by the year 1970. The University reports 1,265
foreign students in 1963, of 4.6 per cent of the total enrollment.
Almost one-half of all foreign students are enrolled in 40 uni-
versities. Ford emphasized that "the needs of the foreign student
can be better met by a wider distribution among qualified uni-
versities and colleges throughout the country."
Long Distance
According to Robert Mundy, a member of the executive
committee of the Berkeley Free Student Union, the students'
main objections to the rules are that they give the chancellor
all final authority and that that there was no student participa-
tion in the drawing up of these rules.
Berkeley's Graduate Coordinating Committee has already
issued a statement that they will not follow the new rules since
they were not consulted in forming them, Mundy said. He also
mentioned that several student organizations are drafting their
own rules, to be ratified by the student body in a special "free-
dom election."
Heyns has promised student participation in rule making,
Mundy said, but if he does not keep this promise, "there is sure
to be protest."

New Prime Minister
Hopes To Create
Political Stability
ATHENS, Greece (P) - Premier
Stephanos Stephanopoulos won a
vote of confidence in Parliament
today, ending a government crisis
that has gripped Greece for more
than two months.
After tumultuous debate, Par-
liament voted in the 21-member
coalition government by 152-148.
It was the first government to
receive a parliamentary mandate
since former Premier George Pap-
andreou lost office July 15 in a
dispute with King Constantine
over control of this North Atlantic
Treaty Organization nation's arm-
ed forces. Two others tried and
Green Light
The vote gave Stephanopoulos,
a dissident member of Papand-
reou's Center Union party, the go-
ahead for an attempt to restore
order and normalicy to the trou-
bled country.
But though the vote brought the
government crisis to a close, no
one expected a quick end to the
troubles that came with it: deep-
ing division between right and
left, masses of Papandreou fol-
lowers ready to demonstrate in
the streets, and a challenge to the
monarchy itself.-
Papandreou, who had boycotted
the debate from the start, appear-
ed in the chamber only long
enough to answer "no" during the
roll-call vote. He then stalked out
amid cheers from deputies loyal
to him.
They shouted "traitor" at each
Center Union dissident who voted
for the government.
All Vote
Every deputy but one in the 300-
member Parliament was present
for the vote and the absent
deputy, out because of illness,
sent his vote in.
As he had predicted, Stephan-
opoulos got the support of 99 dep-
uties from the rightist National
Radical Union, 45 breakways from
Papandreou and all eight votes of
the Progressive party.
The opposition came from the
126 Center Union deputies who
stuck with Papandreou plus the
22 deputies of the pro-Communist
United Democratic Left.
Earlier Defeats
Constantine's two previous at-
tempts to have his premier desig-
nate win Parliament's approval
went down in defeat. They were
toppled by Papandreou.
Papandreou-in his battle with
the 25-year-old king -not only o
lost the reins of government but r
also the majority in Parliament. m
He won the February 1964 elec-
tions and ruled with 171 seats. c
During the long crisis, 45 deputies ov
deserted his CentersUnion party. F.
The crisis also produced some of f
postwai' Greece's worst street riot- p
ing, resulting in one death and e
over 300 injured. a

Each Claims
Other Broke
China Claimgs India
Guilty of Provocation
On Himalayan Front
NEW DELHI (M)-Pakistan and
India, ominously warning of new
hostilities, accused each other last
night of violating the nearly two-
day-old cease-fire in their un-
declared three-week war.
A Pakistani government state-
ment said India's "mischievous ac-
tions" could result in a resumption
of full-scale'fighting.
It accused the Indians of lay-
ing down an artillery barrage last
night 12 miles from Lahore, Paki-
stan's second-largest city, and
moving forward in three areas of
the United Nations truce line.
Counter Charge
However in New Delhi the In-
dians accused the Pakistanis of
violating the ceasefire in the
Ferozepore and Sialkot sectors and
warned such incursions would
compel New Delhi to retaliate.
ns tne rival capitals traded ac-
cusations, China charged India
with new "provocations and in-
trusions" along their Himalayan
frontier. A note to the Indian Em-
bassy in Peking accused the In-
dians of capturing Chinese bor-
der dwellers, sheep and yaks and
demanded their return.
With China and Pakistan ap-
plying pressure from the north,
Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shas-
tri's government hinted it may
junk the determinedly neutralist,
anti-nuclear foreign policy that
has often kept India at logger-
heads with the West.
Shastri's education minister, M.
C. Chagla, told Parliament the
time had come for India "to do
some rethinking about its foreign
policy." He said India wol have
to find its place in a world moving
toward a new regrouping of forces.
Only a few months ago, Shastri
said India would not now enter the
nuclear club.
Neither India nor Pakistan
showed any inclination to comply
with the UN order for troop with-
drawals from positions held at the
start of the fighting three weeks
ago over possession of Kashmir.
The Pakistani government said
its troops woul stay put until an
agreement is reached at the UN
on means of solving the Kashmir
deadlock. Pakistan has repeaiedly
demanded a plebiscite in Kashmir
to determine whether the largely
Moslem population wants -to join
Pakistan, remain with India or
become independent.
Out of Question

'U' Enrollment Reaches 34,450;
SResidential Clee eaRpe

A record University enrollment
f 34,453 students this fall was
eported to the Regents at their
nonthly meeting yesterday.
The figure represents an in-
rease of more than 2000 students
ver last year's total of 32,415.

must not happen at the University.
He mentioned the problems of
obtaining the money necessary to
begin building the college's cam-
pus. Hatcher said it is the Uni-
versity's intention to construct
residential college dormitories with
the same "self-liquidating" finan-
cial methods which have been
used to construct the University's
other dormitories.

This means that bonds will be
sold to raise the construction'
money, using presently paid-off
dorms as security. The problem
arises that the administration has
already heavily mortgaged its
dorms to finance the consruction
of Bursley Hall.
Hatcher set 1967 as the starting'
date for the college, emphasizing
that for its first year it will use

central campus housing already in
existence. He estimated the resi-
dential college's own dormitories
will be operation by 1968.
Not Informed
Pierpont also said the Univer-
sity's administration has not yet
been informed about any of the
results of the audit of its books
by a legislative auditing group.
