Lynd May
Resign Over
Hanoi Trip
Professor Upset by
Criticism of Speech
Given on Hanoi Radio
Yale Prof. Staughton Lynd is
considering resigning because of
heavy criticism from Yale's presi-
dent, students, alumni and other
faculty .members on his recent
fact-finding trip to North Viet
Nam. He said at a campus rally
last week he "wonders" if he
should quit.
Lynd was accompanied on his
ten-day trip to Hanoi by Thomas
Hayden, former Daily editor and
founder of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society, and Herbert Ap-
theker, a leading Communist party
In a statement to the Yale Daily
News, Yale President Kingman
Brewster accused Lynd of giving
"aid and comfort" to an enemy
engaged in combat with U.S.
He called Lynd's mission "naive
and misguided" but reserved his
harshest criticism for a speech
delivered by Lynd while in Hanoi.
According to Hanoi Radio, Lynd
accused the U.S. government of
lying to American people about
k Viet Nam. But early this week,
Lynd disavowed the remark.
Brewster said 'the assistant pro-
fessor's speech in Hanoi was a
"disservice to the causes 'of free-
dom of dissent, freedom of travel
and conscientious pacifism."
"Lynd's disparagement of his
country's leadership and policies,
while in Hanoi, damaged the
causes he purports to serve,"
Brewster said.
Lynd had no comment on Brew-
ster's statement at this time. Ef-
forts to reach him were unsuccess-
ful, but his wife reported that he
was accepting no calls from the
press for the time being.
As an assistant professor, Lynd
does not have tenure at Yale. But
it is not expected that he -will be
asked to give up his job, a Yale
Daily News editor said yesterday.
If Lynd leaves Yale, it will prob-
ably be his own decision, prompt-
ed by a barrage of criticism direct-
ed at him by some of his col-
leagues and students.
The Justice Department has not
announced any prosecution of the
three travellers. They would be
subject to a fine and prison sen-
tence under laws banning travel
to certain Communist countries,
giving "aid or comfort" to any
enemy, or attempting to carry on
private negotiations with a govern-
ment without State Department

"mix" of the student body than
an attempt to control economic
conditions in the areas of books
and housing would be.
Bluestone admitted that the
ideas to work on increased public
support of higher education are
good ones and that scholarship
and grant programs need to be
expanded until there is truly free
universal education, which won't
come for .many years.
However, Bluestone said that
there is also a need for economic

reform to supplement these pro-
grams. "Why put more money in-
to scholarships if that money only
goes to pay for higher prices for
books and rent?" he asked. "With
lowered costs, grant money be-
comes greater in real terms, in
terms of what it can buy," he said.
Cutler's report contended that
the central campus area lacks
space and that it would take
$150,000-$300,000 of capital to
initially establish a bookstore. It
concluded from these factors that
the project would be economically
The report also stated that the
small savings - $10-$15 annualy
per student-a discount bookstore
could offer would not make it sig-
nificantly easier for economically
disadvantaged students to attend
the University.

bookstore would be. economically
feasible and point to the success
of Prof. Fred C. Shure's discount
Student Book Service. They main-
tain the SGC-operated "bookery"
failed because it had insufficient
operating funds and was poorly
In approving Cutler's report, the
Regents failed to rescind the 1929
ruling prohibiting competition be-
tween the University and private
enterprise. They explained that
the disapproval of the bookstore
was "based not on the Regents'
ruling of 1929 . . . but upon the
merits of the issue."
Regent Irene Murphy, however,
supports the official repeal of the
ruling and has promised students
that she will present a motion to:

tkat more fundamental than their'
conflict with the Regents over the
best way of increasing the socio-
economic mix of the student body
is their complaint that they can
not communicate with the Re-
Mickey Eisenberg, '67, of the
Student Government C o u n c i 1
bookstore committee, complained:
"We tried doing it (presenting the
bookstore proposal) according to
Hoyle; we tried playing our cards
they way they should be played,
and it accomplished nothing. Nine
months of a campaign, 13,000 stu-
dent signatures, reports and more
reports brought nothing."
He complained that the Regents
"completely ignore - students."
"There is no formalized communi-
cation, not even with SGC other
than through letters. The Regents
meet with SGC once a year at a
formal banquet. We once asked
that students be allowed to meet

with the Regents for an hour
before their monthly meetings or
have time to speak at the meet-
ings. All the vice-presidents make
reports; why can't the student'
body?" Eisenberg questioned.
Except for attending a few
ceremonial banquets during the
year with such groups as SGC,
The Daily and Interfraterity
Council, the Regentsdonot meet
with students in their official
capacity as the Board of Regents.
Some Regents say they will talk
with students solely on an indi-
vidual-to-individual basis but em-
phasize that at these times they
speak solely for themselves.
Even as individuals, Eisenberg
said, "Regents Irene Murphy and
Carl Brablec are the only ones
that care to talk to students; the
others are living in their own
One observer, looking around
the Regents' Room after last Fri-

day's meeting at the group of
excited students talking about the
bookstore, said, "Look, Brablec and
Mrs. Murphy are the only ones
Some of the Regents had want-
ed to sit down with concerned
students before last Friday's meet-
ing to discuss the bookstore re-
port, but the majority of the
Regents turned down the proposal.
Bluestone said that the actionsl
of both the Regents and Cutler
on the bookstore issue "have to a
great extent dimmed the hopes of
students working with the two
Bluestone said, "I thought at
one time that students could work
with the Office of Student Affairs;
now I don't even think there is
one. Some people tried to con-
vince me last year that the way
for students to change things is
to work with the Regents and the
administration, who will open

regular communication channels.
That's crazy. They're not willing
to do that at all; they've shown
that by their action."
Bluestone said that UMSEU will
continue working for the book-
store and other economic reforms.
The group will be working with
the adults of the Know Your Tgni-
versity Day steering.committee on
economic problems at the Univer-
sity in addition to the problem of
state financing of higher educa-
tion, he said.
UMSEU will also work with the
Young Democrats, VOICE political
party, the people who worked on
the "Bookery" and the SGC book-
store committee to see what they
can do to' keep the issue of a dis-
count bookstore alive, Bluestone
said. "If there isn't anything fur-
ther to do as a group, it will be
difficult for UMSEU to go ahead

What's, New
At 764-1817

The drive to collect money to pay for the appeals of students
who have been reclassified as a result of their participation in
Viet Nam protests has netted $3600, including an anonymous
donation of $1500, Chairman of the Student Legal Defense Com-
mittee James McEvoy, Grad, said yesterday. The committee is
planning a bucket drive to raise funds. In addition to the drive,
the group is also considering a rally with Gov. George Romney,
Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-Mich) and Rep. Gerald Ford (R-Mich)
as suggested possible speakers.

Gary Rothberger, '66, whose request to the University to with-
hold his grades from his local draft board has been complied with,
yesterday asked the University to send to his board a statement
to the effect that his performance as a student is "satisfactory.".
He said that such a statement, not including grades, would be in
line with VOICE political party's resolution demanding the with-
holding of grades.

Gov. George Romney and Lieut. Gov. William Milliken will
serve as honorary co-chairman of a civil rights conference at the
University. The conference, which will take place Feb. 4-5, is being
sponsored by the University Republican Club and the Republican
student advisory committee.
Speakers will include Dr. John Morsell of the National Asso-
ciation for the Advancement of Colored People, commissioners
Ilene Hernandez and Samuel Jackson of the Federal Equal Em-
,ployment Opportunities Commission, and representatives of the
Southern Christian Leadership Conference. Other participants
will include members of the State Civil Rights Commission, Ann
Arbor public officials and about 250 college Republicans and
student government leaders from throughout Michigan.
John Manning, administrative assistant to the dean of the
literary college, has indicated that the pressures of the trimester
may be responsible for a large increase in the number of incom-
pletes taken last semester. At present Manning is compiling sta-
tistical data which shows comparisons with other semesters. He
plans to finish it in several weeks.
The Regents have approved a co-operative agreement be-
tween the Netherlands School of Economics and the University
Graduate School of Business Administration for the establishment
of a graduate program in the Netherlands. Beginning in Septem-
ber, 1966, the five year program will have two University teaching
faculty members in Rotterdam for one semester.
The Netherlands institution will in return send four or five
of its junior faculty members here to study at the post-graduate
level and eventually return to Rotterdam where they will form
the nucleus of the School of Economics' business administration
staff. The five-year program, which may be extended by mutual
consent is being financed by a Dutch organization, the Founda-
tion for Business Administration, which in turn is supported by
grants from seven major Dutch corporations.

Carl H. Pollmar, lecturer in statistics at the Graduate School
of Business Administration, died last Friday after a long illness.
Prof. Pollmar was a research mathematician in the Engineering
Research Institute before joining the Business School faculty.
In 1956 he and four other associates won the Levy Gold Medal of
the Franklin Institute of Pennsylvania for mathematics research.

Plans Made

To Lobby State-Wide
The University of Michigan
Student Economic Union's Know
Your University Day steering
committee, meeting officially for
the first time next month, is set-
ting out to become a strong posi-
tive force for higher education in
the state of Michigan, says a com-
mittee member.

up its plan of action UMSEU's
committee will establish its basic
policies and structure and choose

ing (tentatively scheduled for
Feb. 12).
On the local level the committee
may decide to hold more activities
like Know Your University Day;
similar ones would also be plan-
ned for out-state. The committee,
composed of 26 students, civil
rights workers, labor leaders,
clergymen and businessmen, was
originally formed last year to con-
duct the Know Your University
State-Wide Idea
The most far-reaching ideas, ac-
cording to Bluestone, are on a
state-wide basis:
" Committees will be set up in
communities around the state to
educate the area in the need for
higher education and to obtain
money for it.
" The group may prepare re-
ports for the State Board of Edu-
cation on- planning for higher edu-
cation. The short-run stress would
be placed on increasing appropria-
tions for the state's universities.
The long-run aim would be to es-
tablish the possibility of universal
higher education by lowering eco-
nomic barriers. Bluestone stressed
that this did not mean free tui-
tion, but that economic hardships
would no longer block the path
to a college education.
* The committee will send
lobbyists to Lansing to testify on
the need for more appropriations,
and to round up. support from
senators and representatives.
Forming Policy
Besides forming policy and the
constructing of a program, the
committee will change its name,
probably to the Michigan Citizens
for Higher Education Steering
The group must also choose its
leaders. They will most likely be
a student and a prominent citizen.

CAZZIE RUSSELL GOES UP for an easy lay-up and two more points yesterday as Gopher Archie Clark (21) looks on helplessly.
Cazzie, who scored 40 points, had 15 field goals and shot 10-12 from the charity stripe.
Michigan Runs Past Gophers, 9-5


Ten Skein Now Four Straight

The opening horn in the second
half had the wail of the banshees
to it . . . It called Minnesota to
its death as a Big Ten basketball
contender yesterday.
This last meeting between the
Wolverines and Golden Gophers in
a basketball era special to both
of them was anticipated with
deep-set desire, fought with un-
relenting intensity, and won in
the end by Michigan, 97-85, with
luck, technical precision, and a
fiery all-out effort that must be
kept deadly consistent to make a
winner in a crucial game like this
The victory, coupled with Michi-
gan State's 90-76 loss to Iowa
yesterday, puts the Wolverines in
sole possession of first place in the
Big Ten basketball race with a
4-0 record.
The Edge
There was a well-honed edgeto
the Michigan team that over-
powered the Gophers at Yost
Field House yesterday. The sharp-
ness-the feel of a winner-was
apparent from the time the Wol-
verines first swooped down on
the boards from all points and
raked them clean at both ends of
the court.
And there was the game. Up
where that small metal hoop meets
a perpendicular surface-there
was the game.
The Blue were in control from
the very beginning, when a Min-
nesota set-shot fell short and the
Wolverines rolled back up court to
open the scoring with a close-up
jumper by Oliver Darden . . . on
the fourth try. At the end of the
first half the rebound totals ran
31-23, Michigan. When it was all
over the gap had swelled to an
incredible 28, with the Wolverines

our extra shots that they'd forget
the break.
The Gophers did get an unusual
number of easy openings and made
a bunch of cripples but they were
not enough to offset the advantage
the Blue were getting from this
"On defense it was just a mat-
ter of keeping Minnesota from
getting the second and third try
Strack had been warning his
players about the Gophers all
week. He made it clear that they
led the league in per gamere-
bounding, that this was their
strength, and that this was where
they could be beaten. Minnesota

Coach John Kundla called this
a dubious distinction at best.
"We had only played in two Big
Ten games," explained Kundla,
"so it really meant nothing. In'
fact the rebounding against us
has been very heavy also.
'After getting 64 today, Michi-
gan will probably be first in re-
bounding now. I suppose that this
is just a way of using statistics to'
get your boys up for a game."
Leaper Lane
But Jim Myers, Darden and
John Clawson played the strategy'
out on the boards with the sur-
prising ferocity of Michigan's more
recent "Anvil Chorus." Myers led
the pack with 21 rebounds, hauling

in an amazing 18 in the. second
stanza. Darden finished with 17,
'getting. 12 in the first . period.
Clawson was credited with 10.
At 6'11/2", Captain. Archie Clark
topped the Gophers with eight re-
bounds; five in the first half.
Wolverine fans may be getting
used to this by now, but Cazzie
Russell again led all scorers with
40 points, only three short of
John Tidwell's Field House record:

exactly 30 points per game for the

Cav'anagh, Williams May Seek
Democratic Senate Nomination

Seek Accurate Representation o Poor

Serious rumors continue to cir-
culate through Michigan political
circles indicating that the Michi-
gan Democratic Party is in store
this fall for a" divisive primary
election battle over the nomina-
tion for the United States Senate.
Up for re-election in Novem-
ber is Democratic Sen. Patrick
McNamara, now serving his sec-
ond term, who will be 72 years
old in October. McNamara, who
underwent serious surgery just
before his last victory, appears'
