However, it invited Britain to put

Britain, as on earlier resolu-

has been proceeding with speed and thoroughness in the investi-
gation of the relationships between the University and University
Microflims, Inc., sources report. The 'investigation was prompted
by articles in The Daily several weeks ago pointing out possible
conflict of interest violations on the part of Regent Eugene B.
Power, president of UMI.
The University has sent out letters to all administrative units
asking for complete information on their relationships with the
microfilm company. Meanwhile Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit),
chairman of the House Ways and Means subcommittee on higher
education which is also probing Power's business relationships
with the, University, said yesterday that he had invited Power
to testify at a hearing on the subject Dec. 8. Power is currently
in Tokyo, and it is not yet clear whether he will return in time
for the hearing.
The Literary College Steering Committee yesterday discussed
the possibility of a required summer reading list for incoming
freshmen with. the possibility of a required essay, Kenneth Vero-
sub, '65, a member of the committee, said. The discussions, how-
ever, were generally inconclusive. Also discussed was the holding
of an open meeting on the problem of counseling. The meeting
will probably take place next week.
, The University has been awarded $152,810 by the National
Science Foundation for support of two summer institutes for
college teachers and for research in mental health and zoology.
Of the total, $1,800 has been -granted for research in the
Mental Health Research Institute, $31,000 Will support zoological
research, $76,310 will be spent in psychology, and $43,700 will
be utilized in physics research.

As a supplement to the courses presently offered in the field
of international and foreign law, the International Law Society
of the Law School was officially formed recently. This organi-
zation was form'ed as a result of growing interest in interna-
tional law on this campus and across the country. Since several
members of the faculty are extremely prominent in this area
of legal knowledge, they will speak at various dinners and lec-
tures planned by the society.
A reliable source at the Michigan State News revealed yes-
terday that Mike Kindman, who resigned recently as editorial
director of the News, is currently setting up a paper of his own.
The paper is to be "a newspaper forniat with magazine style."
Publication of the new weekly is expected to begin within the
next two weeks. Before his resignation, Kindman had indicated
dissatisfaction with the News editorial board which he claimed
was "growing more and more conservative and oppressive."
Long Distance
Henry Sondheimer, a student at Harvard College and chair-
man of the Harvard Undergraduate Council's committee in-.
vestigating a student exchange program, said the proposals
sent to the different schools were "preliminary questionnaires"
to canvass, opinion from a variety of institutions.
Sondheimer explained that 12 colleges had been contacted,
and ten had already replied. He noted that the University has
not yet answered the query. The 12 schools contacted by Harvard
included the University, Wisconsin, Chicago, Tulane, Stanford,
Swarthmore, Davidson, Harvey Mudd, Oberlin, Lawrence, Carl-
ton, and Reed.
Sondheimer added that responses from Wisconsin and Tulane
showed extreme interest, that Davidson was particularly en-
thusiastic, and several of the others were also interested and
wished to pursue the idea further.
In picture captions on Pages 1 and 8 of yesterday's paper
representative James Farnsworth (R-Plainview) was listed in-
correctly as (D-Holland).

ISGC Votes
Policy Poll
Dissident Members
Attempt To Reinstate
Refereniduni in Ballot
Student Government Council
abandoned plans last night to
present a referendum on the No-
vember 17 SGC election ballot that
would allow students to express
their opinions on the administra-
tion's policy in Viet Nam.
However, nine council members
have called a meeting for 3 p.m.
this afternoon in the student gov-
ernment offices to plan a peti-
tion drive to get the referendum
on the ballot anyway. (Nine votes
for the referendum was less than
the two-thirds needed for SGC
to place it on the ballot.)
One thousand signatures will
have to be collected by Monday
night in order to get the Viet
Nam opinion survey on the ballot.
If the signatures can be ob-
tained, a special SGC meeting will
be called Monday ight forcing
S GC to submit the preference poll
to the student body.
Council member Mickey Eisen-
berg, '67, is initiating the peti-
Mtion Defeatedi
Eisenberg called for a petition
following defeat of the motion to
place the opinion survey on Viet
Nam on the ballot. He felt that
"the students are demanding it.
We are committed to do something
on this election." Robert Bodkin,
'67, disagreed with Eisenberg be-
cause "the Viet Nam issue would
effect the election. It, would be
placing too much emphasis on
national issues which would over-
shadow University issues."
SGC blocked another attempt
by Lee Hornberger, '66, to place a
Viet Nam referendum on the elec-
tion ballot. Hornberger had
brought up a motion at last Thurs-
day's meeting that stated, "the
student body of the University of
Michigan is in basic agreement
with the administration's policy in
Viet Nam." He was backed by
1000 signatures which forced
Council "to either adopt the leg-
islation or submit it to the stu-
dent body for their approval at
the next regularly scheduled elec-
tion." SGC chose to "refuse to
consider it."
This meant that unless Council
reconsider the motion at last
night's meeting, it would be plac-
ed on the ballot, according to SGC
rules. By reconsidering the state-
ment and approving it by a two-
thirds majority, SGC spoke on be-
half of the student body and thus
kept the statement off the ballot.
Several Council members felt
that SGC should definitely initiate
some type of survey on the Viet
Nam question. Richard Hoppe, '66,
president of Interfraternity Coun-
cil, moved that "SGC mandate the
executive committee to conduct a
survey on the Viet Nam issues."
The motion was passed.

A GROUP OF STUDENTS gathering in front of the headquarters of Reach student organization on
South University yesterday protested what they called a "power grab" by Reach and Group parties
in the SGC election. Frederick Neff, '67, said that the protestors will picket Group political party
on the Diag Monday, adding that they do not categorically denunciate the party candidates, but
rather protest the idea of "straight ticket voting."


Picket Veterans Parade

Over 100 picketers protesting
the war in Viet Nam, marched in
front of Angell Hall last night
during the Veteran's Day parade.
The protestors, representing no
official student organization, said
they had organized the protest.
because they felt the parade was
a celebration of war.
The parade, composed of bands,
veteran's groups, Girl Scouts,
children's drill teams and other
groups was observed by Rep. Wes-
ton E. Vivian (D-Ann Arbor),
State Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Ann
Arbor), Mayor Wendell E. Hulcher
and other local officials from a
reviewing stand in front of the
Administration building opposite
the picketers.
There were only twenty protes-
tors present at the beginning of
the parade but they were joined
later by members of the Ann
Arbor Women for Peace and sym-
pathetic passers-by to bring the
total number of marchers to over
Peace Group
The Women's Peace group had
originally been granted permission
to march in the parade by Carl
Heldt, the director of the parade.
But permission was revoked yes-
terday by Col. Gerald Miller,
County Civil Defense Director, who
was also in charge of the parade's
composition, because he thought
the signs they intendeed to carry
were "inflammatory and could be
Mrs. Jean Jackson, spokesman
for the Women for Peace, said the
signs quoted Pope Paul ("War no

more") and President John F.
Kennedy and were to be accom-
panied by a United Nations flag.
After the parade passed, the
picketers carrying signs with slo-
gans such as "We respect the
dead, but not the war," and "War
never again" and passing out leaf-
lets describing the purpose of their
"silent vigil," followed the parade
down S. University to Forest and
returned to the Diag for a brief
Other Protests
Sporadic antiwar demonstrations'
took place across the country yes-
terday. In Massachusetts, a soldier
was arrested while taking part in
a Viet Nam war protest at the
gates of his Army base.
Some areas reported a return
of old-time patriotic fervor in
Veterans Day ceremonies that had
become more or less ritualistic
over the years. Originally Armis-
tice Day, commemorating the end
of World War I, the holiday was
changed in name in 1954 to honor
veterans of all wars.
Virtually all the parades, din-
ners, wreath layings and orations
were keyed to support of American
servicemen in Viet Nam. Their
presence there has been denounc-
ed with increasing frequency re-
cently by antiwar picketing, sit
ins, draft card burnings and self
immolation by fire.
Vice-President Hubert H. Hum-
phrey, placing a presidential
wreath at the Tomb of the Un-
known Soldier, declared:
"We are not in Viet Nam to"
establish any American colony,
philosophy or base. We are not

there to enrich ourselves or to
subjugate others to our will.
"We are, my fellow Americans,
in Viet Nam to keep commitment,
a word of honor, established by
national treaty."
May Face
At least 14 University students
who participated in a sit-in dem-
onstration at the Ann Arbor Se-
lective Service Board last month
are now facing the possibility of
immediate induction into the
armed forces, Col. Arthur Holmes,
director of the Michigan Selective
Service System said yesterday.
Information on the students
who were arrested during the pro-
test Oct. 15 will be forwarded to
their local draft boards today,
Holmes reported. Out - of - state
students arrested during the dem-
onstration do not face any penal-
ties at this time, although reports
of their actions will also be for-
warded to their local boards in the,)
near future.
Holmes emphasized that he
would not make a direct recom-
mendation to the local boards that
the protestors be inducted for vio-
lation of a federal statute pro-
hibiting interference with Selec-
tive Service procedures. However,
he predicted that some of the
local boards will "look thoroughly
at the situation" and "expedite,
the immediate induction of some,
of these students."
The ultimate authority for de-
termining the future status of the
protestors rests with their local
board. Yesterday, it seemed ap-
parent that some board members
were reluctant to take any hasty
action against the students.
Dr. Harold Dorr, a member of
the Ann Arbor Draft Board, pre-
dicted that the board "won't
panic" and "will be inclined to.
take all the facts into considera-
tion." He added that "the pri-
mary aim of the board- is to get
the students through school."
Doubts Actionj
Another member of the AnnI
Arbor Board, Robert Norris, said
that although the students had
interfered with procedures at the
Board, he, doubted that action
would be taken against them.
Their academic records will be ex-
amined, however, and if their

Wilson Condemns
'Illegality' of Smith's
Independence Move
By The Associated Press
Rhodesia collided with a furious
wave of British wrath and inter-
national censure last night after
unilaterally declaring its inde-
pendence from the Commonwealth
and the Crown.
While Britain and the United
States denounced the Rhodesians'
rebellion, African leaders at the
United Nations called for action
by the world organization if all
else fails.
One of Rhodesia's neighbors,
South Africa, applauded the
whites' action, but another, black-
ruled Zambia, took the opposite
tack. Zambia's president, Ken-
neth Kaunda, charged that white
Rhodesian troops were building up
along the frontier and said Zam-
bia will meet force with force if
necessary. He declared a state of

Prime Minister Harold Wilson
called the Ian Smith regime illegal
and pledged that Britain will re-

regime gives way to "the rule of

step to independence, Wilson said,

police-state measures and "the
sickeningly familiar attitudes of

Wilson called Rhodesia's decla-
ration a rebellion against the
crown, adding that any attempt
"to give effect to independence
will be reasonable."
Wilson declared he had made
every effort to adjust differences,
only to be told "that the positions
of the two' governments was ir-
Party Unity
Leaders of both opposition par-
ties, the Conservatives and Lib-
erals, announced their support of
Wilson in a display of parliamen-
tary unity.
Support came at once from the
British Commonwealth of Nations.
Among the first to announce non-
recognition of Rhodesia were In-
dia, Canada and New Zealand.
Wilson announced these repri-
sals designed to bring Smith and
his minister to their 'knees:
-The instant dismissal of Smith
and all his ministers.
-An appeal to all Rhodesians
to remain loyal to the Crown, in
other words to break with the
Smith government.
-A break of all political and
economic ties.
-A ban on trade and fiscal
-Expulsion of Rhodesia from
the sterling area and suspension
of Rhodesian access to Common-
wealth preferences in trade.
-A total arms embargo.
Bars Force
But Wilson specifically barred
the use of British force to bring
the Smith regime cown. And it
was learned that an oil embargo,
which could prove a crippling
weapon, is not expected at this
Meanwhile Secretary of State
Dean Rusk denounced Rhodesia's
independence declaration and, un-
der President Johnson's instruc-
tion, ordered the recall of the top
U.S. diplomat from the British

"An illegal seizure of power"

was Rusk's term for the move by
Ian Smith's white minority gov-
ernment to split from Britain and

Is this French President Charles
de Gaulle speaking at one of his
press conferences? Or the French
ambassador to the United States
giving instructions to his secre-
tary? Or a student reciting in
French 465?
Actually it is none of these. This
statement, from Jean-Jacques
Rousseau's "Emile," means "every-
thing is good coming from the
hands of the author of all things,
but everything degenerates in the
hands of man."
Under Discussion
It was under discussion, not in
a French language class, but
rather in an experimental class
offered by the education school.
