* civilian-military junta that gov-
erns part of this divided country
resigned last night.
Gen. Antonio Imbert Barrera,
president of the junta, announced
the resignation in a radio-tele-
vision address.
The resignation of the five-
man junta clears the way for the
installation of a civilian-military
junta proposed by the Organiza-
tion of American States political
OAS Negotiations
The announcement came after

weeks of frustrating negotiations
by the OAS political committee,
led by United States Ambassador
Ellsworth Bunker.
There was no official word when
the provisional government would
take power but there were some
indications that former Dominican
diplomat Hector Garcia Godoy, the
provisional president - designate,
might be sworn in this week.
Four of the five junta members
signed the resignation. The un-
explained holdout was Commodore
Francisco J. Rivera Caminero, the
junta's armed forces secretary and

apparently the group's military
Under the 10-part "Act of Do-
minican Reconciliation" negotiated
by the OAS team, the provisional
government would remain in of-
fice for nine months until na-
tional free elections.
Imbert indicated that the junta's
sudden resignation was at least
in part a face-saving measure
since the economic situation
made a settlement imperative.
The junta had accepted the
OAS peace formula earlier this

month with the understanding
there would be no modifications.
OAS Changes
Since then, however, the OAS
negotiators have accepted some
changes proposed by the rebels.
These include clauses allowing the
return of rebel military men into
the armed forces and authorizing
the rebel regime to disarm the
civilians who had rallied to the
rebel cause after the civil strife
erupted in April.
The resignation and plan came
after an outbreak on Sunday of
the sharpest fighting here since

last June's action.
Dominican military leaders sup-
porting the junta denied that their
troops launched a mortar attack
that started the fighting.
Mortar Fire
The officers said an investiga-
tion turned up no evidence that
the mortar shells which fell into
the rebel-held sector of Santo
Domingo had come from their
Earlier the inter-American peace
force reported the their radar
picked up mortor fire coming
from the junta-controlled sector

north of American military lines.
Rebels Attack
A United States military spokes-
man said yesterday reports indi-
cated rebel forces attacked the
presidential palace, touching off
the liveliest exchange of gunfire
in the city $n more than a month.
Rebel Presidential Minister iec-
tor Aristy denied that any attack
had been launched by the rebel
He' told newsmen by telephone
from the rebel quarter that heavy
gunfire, including mortars and
106mm recoilless rifle shells, had

landed in the downtown area in
the vicinity of Independence Park.
Five Killed
The peace force said the mor-
tar fire killed five persons and
wounded more than a dozen. One
Paraguayan soldier in the peace
force was wounded.
The fighting flared Sunday
night at about 9:50 p.m. and con-
tinued until shortly after mid-
Rebel officials said an investiga-
tion was continuing to determine
if there were more victims in the
most battered part of their sector

closest to Brazilian and U.S. lines.
Commodore Francisco J. Rivera
Caminero, junta armed forces
secretary, emphatically deniedrhis
troops had fired any weapons dur-
ing the night.
At the same time, the junta
armed forces chief of staff, Gen.
Jacinto Martinez Arana, told
newsmen some of his officers had
seen mortar fire coming from
areas of the city occupied by
American forces.
A U.S. military spokesman said
American forces had not fired
mortars since May.

What's New
At 764 1817

A new development for the fall in campus student activism
-civil disobedience-was foreshadowed last night when Voice
political party discussed participation in a nation-wide Viet Nam
demonstration and student strike. Twenty of 90 members at the
meeting said they were .willing to commit civil disobedience on
Oct. 15 at ROTC drills or at the Ann St. armory. Also discussed
at the meeting were plans to form a private student-faculty-
administration corporation to get federal education funds to
build inexpensive student apartments.

Ann Arbor City Council authorized a building permit for a
26-story high-rise apartment structure planned for the corner'
of Maynard and William last night. It had reserved the power
to consider su'ch developments when it drafted an 18-story height
limitation last month. The building, expressly planned for non-
students, will be served by off-site parking for 75 cars.
The Ann Arbor Co-ordinating Committee of the Committee
for a Public Hearing on Foreign Policy announced the details
of its conference on Viet Nam. The participants in. the confer-
ence will include humanists, artists, writers, social theorists,
and area and development experts from around the world.

The University's $50 enrollment deposit program will be re-
placed by a $50 tuition deposit program beginning this fall, Merlin
W. Miller, associate registrar, announced yesterday. Within the,
next month, all enrollment deposits will be credited as partial.,
tuition payments,{ with refunds beginning November 1. Due to
delays in transferring records, the Students Accounts Office says
it will have no information on refunds until after November 1.
* * * *
Edward G. Groesbeck, registrar, stuck to his predictions of
an all-time high enrollment. They estimated enrollment of 30,900
students is 6.2 per cent above the 29,103 students who enrolled
last fall.
Busy Signal
Norma F. Kraker, superintendent of the Off Campus Housing
division of the Office of Student Affairs, yesterday criticised the
high prices of off campus housing. "A Housing Committee has
been set up by the City Council to show a need for lower prices
in apartments rented off campus," Mrs. Kraker said. Other
committees appointed to solve the price problem include President
Harlan Hatcher's Blue Ribbon Committee, headed by Asst. Dean
of the Law School Roy F. Profitt.
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann Arbor is reportedly ready to
give the University a gift of $1 million to build a dramatic arts
theatre for such presentations as the Professional Theatre Pro-
gram. The additional $1.5-2.5 million needed to construct the
1200 seat theatre in Felch Park would come from, internal Uni-
versity sources. Such a theatre has long been on the list of pro-
posed University construction, but has always been low on the
priority list until now. Power refused comment.

In what could be the hottest fraternity discrimination case
in years, the executive committee of the Interfraternity Council
will probably discuss the membership policies of Sigma Chi at
its 7:15 meeting tonight. Ever since the Stanford University
chapter of Sigma Chi was suspended from the national fraternity
list spring, allegedly because it had pledged a Negro student,
colleges across the country and federal officials such as U.S.
Commissioner of Education Francis Keppel have been lambasting
the fraternity's policies. IFC actions in the Sigma Chi case would
probably parallel those taken in imposing sanctions on Trigon
last year.
Long Distance
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Det.) said yesterday he has verified
with the legislative auditor's office that the investigation of the
University's financial records is progressing on schedule. Faxon

Pay Held Up
For Month
Schedule Revisions
Create Confusion,
New Loan System
There may be some unexpected-
ly hard going for a number of
University teaching fellows for at
leasta month this fall due to a
change in this year's pay sched-
ules. As a result of a policy
change over the summer, teach-
ing fellows and visiting profes-
sors will be paid not at the be-
ginning of this month, as they
were last year, but rather at
month's end, according to Wil-
liam J. Schlatter, assistant to the
vice-president for academic af-
Because many of the fellows
were apparently uninformed of
this fact, at least a few of them
will probably be making use of
a newly created interest-free
"emergency" loan now being of-
fered them by the Office of Fi-
nancial Aids.
The new change in payroll pol-
icy, according to Schlatte, re-
sulted largely from the fact that
last year's pay schedule included
a final check which was not sent,
to the teaching fellows until May
31, over a month past the semes-
ter's end.
12-Month Basis
In years past, fellows were paid
on a monthly, 12-check basis. A
few years ago, however, a 10-
check system was instituted with
payments starting at the end of
However, since final checks were
sent at a date 'so far past the
end of the semester, many of the
instructors who didn't remain in
Ann Arbor during the summer
were inconvenienced.
Thus the policy was changed
over this past summer so that
payment was to be made in eight
instead of nine checks, and the
final check would come at the end
of the winter semester.
A Second Change
The new system, however, also
involves a second change-where
the first check had come on Au-
gust 31 last year, this year's sys-
tem does not allow for a payment
until the end of September. Since
appointments to teaching fellows
are often not made until the very
beginning of the semester, the
change has little affect on the
new fellows.
There are, however, those fel-
lows who are returning to teach1
here, who had planned on the
initial paycheck to tide them
through registration, first month's
food and ,rent, and books and
who were not informed of the
policy change. These instructors
came to face an expensive month
with no money.
For many of the fellows there
is consolation in the fact that
some departments have raised pay.
In addition, at least one depart-
ment is planning temporary fi-
nancial aid for those who had
planned closely on their first pay-

PRESIDENT LYNDON B. JOHNSON meets with steel negotiators In the White House Cabinet Room yesterday..


EQCAsksJIG To Grant Election
For Alleged Presidential Gap

8-Day Wait
Reached by
Negotiations Continue
In Washington on
President's Request
WASHINGTON (M)-President
Lyndon B. Johnson last night an-
nounced an eight-day postpone-
ment of the today's midnight steel
strike deadline.
Johnson said steel unions and
management negotiators will con-
tinue the talks for which he sum-
moned them to the White House.
His ;announcement of the post-
ponement came six hours after
the. negotiators began talks.
No Shutdowns
He added, "This morning I re-
questedthat there be no shut
downs of operations and that pro-
duction by the steel industry con-
tinue. during the negotiations by
the parties," he said.
"In response to my request, the
union and company representa-
tives have agreed to postpone the
imminent shutdown fo eight
"During this period they will
continue their negotiations in
Washington,," Johnson said.
In a move reminiscent of his
successful intervention last year
in the railroad dispute, Johnson
summoned both sides to the White
House and gave them a 45-minute
lecture on their responsibilities.
Johnson's action followed a 2%-
hour breakfast meeting with Sen.
Wayne Morse (D-Ore) and Un-
dersecretary of Commerce LeRoy
Collins, his personal emissaries to
the steel talks in Pittsburgh,
Morse and Collins reported the
negotiations stalemated and told
the President "the parties alone
are unable to reach a settlement."
Will Continue
Press secretary Bill D. Moyers
said "they are continuing to talk
and they will continue, hopefully,
until a settlement is reached."
Moyers said the President met
with the six principal negotiators
for the United Steelworkers and
the four for the 10 major steel
companies for about an hour in
the cabinet room.
The companies involved in the
negotiations produce about 80 per
cent of the nation's basic steel.
Strong Appeal
"The President made a strong,
unemotional, straightforward ap-
peal as the 'leader of the country
for the negotiators to put the na-
tional interest first," Moyers said.
Moyers said Johnson stressed
the "tragic consequences" of a
steel strike to the nation's econ-
omy and quoted a report from
the Defense Department which
said one bureau "cannot afford
the loss of- a single day's produc-
tion." Moyers didn't name the
The President, however, pre-
viously has said a steel strike
could have a harmful effect on
the war effort in Viet Nam.
Moyers said in answer to a
question there was no mention at
the meeting of any plans by John-
son to invoke the Taft-Hartley
Act to hnb ck astrike for s80 davs

East Quadrangle Council has
filed a judiciary case requesting
an immediate election to fill a
vacancy in the office of Inter-
quadrangle Council which they
contend exist.
The complaint, filed with Joint
Judiciary and Interquadrangle
Councils, contends that Lee Horn-
berger, now occupying the office
of president of IQC is:
-Not qualified to hold the of-
fice; and
-Illegally in that position as
his succession to it, from his post
as vice-president, is in opposition
to "the clear language of the con-
Eadie Got Married
The vacancy was caused by the
marriage of John Eadie, elected,

as president of IQC in last win-
ter's trimester.
The main contention centers
around a simple clause in the IQC
constitution: "If the vacancy oc-
curs during the second semester,
the vice-president shall serve out
the term as president." Horn-
berger and the plaintiffs, East
Quadrangle Council differ on what
exactly the second semester is.
The Crucial Resignation
Eadie has not, as yet, r:esigned
from his position, and this too is
crucial. If, as East Council con-
tends, Eadie ceased to be a quad-
rangle resident when he left at
the end of the winter semester, he
would no longer satisfy the pri-
mary requisite for membership on
the Interquadrangle Council. That
is, he would no longer be a resi-
dent of the quadrangle system. In

this case the vacancy would have
occured April 25, when EQC says
Eadie left West Quadrangle.
However, if the vacancy will not
occur before Eadie officially re-
signs the position of president,
then there is as yet no vacancy.
If so a vacancy in the office would
occur duringthe second semester
of Eadie's term, and Hornbprger
would then succeed him.
East Quad Council maintains
that the vacancy occured whenI
Eadie's residence hall contract ex-
pired, without a renewal, at the
end of the winter semester. Such
a vacancy would have occurred in
the first semester, they contend,j
and would be filled by an elec-
tion by house presidents.
Two Meanings
"Second semester" has been as-
signed two possible meanings by

Fall Enrollment Up by 1800

EQC in their complaint:
-"The period from Monday,
August 30, 1965, to December 18,
1965. That is, the president's term
consists of a first semester of 10
weeks in the spring, a second se-
mester in the fall, and a third
semester of 4-5 weeks in the
winter." It is noted that this
leaves a gap, or "third semester"
"when the vice-presideht would
not succeed, but the election of a
new president . . . could take
-"The period from about Sep-
tember 30, 1965, to the election
date in late January, 1965. That
is two equal periods each a se-
mester long, beginning on January
30, 1965 and ending in late Jan-
uary 1966."r
First or Second?
If, as IQC contends, Eadie did
vacate the office of president of
IQC in the Spring when his resi-
dence hall contract expired, the
vacancy occurred in the first
semester for either possible mean-.
ing of "second semester." In this
case, an election is called for, and
Hornberger cannot succeed to the
presidency except by winning the
On the other hand, if the va-
cancy does not occur until Eadie
resigns, then it will come about
during the second semester, and
Hornberger is entitled to succeed.
However, even if Hornberger is
entitled to succeed, he does not
meet a requirement for the presi-
dency which is "The president
shall have had at least one year's
prior experience in residence halls

Edward Groesbeck, University
registrar,' said yesterday that al-
though final figures on the past
week's registration will not be
ready for several weeks, it
appears that the totals will run
very close to what was expected.
Estimated enrollments of 30,900
students at the University and its
affiliated' campuses for the fall
semester of this year would result
in an increase of 1800 over last
year's total, Groesbeck said.
The freshman class numbers
about 4600, a change of 375 stu-
dents over last year. This includes

three. Groesbeck attributed this
to the graduate student enroll-
ment, particularly in Law, since
Law School commenced the fol-
lowing day.
However, the labyrinth in Wa-
terman Gym may be a thing of
the past within two years, if
present plans are fulfilled.
"As soon as the data-processing
facilities match our data-proces-
sing plans and procedures," Groes-
beck said, "registration will be-
come a. relatively simple matter."
Groesbeck explained that all
pertinent information will be
transferred from the computer
,ards now used in reistrationin

possibility that classification could
be conducted by phone, although
it is not now being planned.
With the new system, an old
friend, the student ID number,
will fall by the side to be replaced
by an even older friend, the social
security number.
The machines necessary for the
changeover should be ready within
eighteen months, Groesbeck noted,
and with their arrival will come
"a drastic change in our regis-
tration procedures."
Groesbeck noted that projected
enrollment figures for this year
indicate a decreasing percentage
