In a marathon session ending early this morning, SGC
voted to raise the budget of its Student Housing Association
$500 to defray additional expesses of its voter registration drive.
The SHA will now operate on a semester budget of $1000, $750
of which will be used to print, mail and follow up 13,000 letters
to University graduate students, encouraging them to register
for city elections. The letter contends that if 2000 or more
students register and vote then "the current power structure in
Ann Arbor will have to listen to the housing needs of students."
Included also is a provision for public interviews with City
Council candidates and a correspondence with students on the
results of these talks.
University officials have reiterated that male students must
successfully complete 30 hours of course work during the period
from September 1, 1965 to August 31, 1966 to remain eligible for
2-S deferments. Draft 'boards in Birmingham and Battle Creek
have recently written University students taking 14 hours to
determine if they will meet the requirement
University counselors now engaged in pre-registration are
recommending that all ien take 15 hours of course work each
semester. However University Selective Service Counselor Thomas
Clark explained that students attending summer school may
take a lighter load during the fall and winter terms without
risking loss of their 2-S deferments.
Clark explained that a student could take 6 hours of summer
course work and 12 hours during the fall and winter terms. He
suggested that students planning this type of schedule contact
his office. The University will then notify the local draft board
to avert any possible misunderstanding.
The State Board of Education is continuing meetings on the
future of the University's Flint branch with a Flint citizens com-
mittee, despite doubt over the success of the talks.
Charles Orlebeke, who represents Gov. George'Romney on the
board expressed doubt that anything canrbe accomplished "by
rushing into meetings during the next two or three weeks."
Board member Leon Fill said the Board "had no business
negotiating with this committee; we should negotiate with the
Flint Board of Education."
The citizens group was appointed by Flint legislators to
encourage continued operation of the University branch in de-
fiance of a state board recommendation that the branch be
converted into a four-year state college with an autonomous
governing board.

Ronald Miller, '68, one of the anti-Viet Nam protestors who
were arrested last October for their sit in, was sentenced yesterday
to 14 days in jail. Miller was one of the seven protestors who
pleaded guilty before Washtenaw County Circuit Judge James R.
Breakey Jr. Miller will serve his sentence on the weekends.
The graduate school may establish a new degree between the
masters level and the doctorate. According to Dean Steven Spurr,
the degree would be awarded to students who have completed
all work towards a Ph.D. except for the doctroal thesis.
"This is already a clearly defined point in the doctoral pro-
gram," Spurr said. "Many students never get beyond this point
and a new degree here would recognize their completion of a
course of study beyond the masters level.
Student opinion on the proposed degree is currently being
sounded out through Graduate Student Council. Spurr said that
nothing formal has yet been done, but that if reaction is gen-
erally favorable, he expects to discuss the proposed plan at an
April conference of the Committee for Institutional Co-operation,
an organization of Big Ten schools and the University of Chicago.
Long Distance
Michigan State University President John A. Hannah said
yesterday the report that MSU is planning to establish a law
school and has selected a dean to head it up is not true.
Two weeks ago the state Senate passed a resolution asking
the University of Michigan and Wayne State University to open a
branch law school in Lansing for the benefit of lawmakers and
state employes.
"Our position," said Hannah, "is that if there is going to be a
law school here it should be part of our institution."
But he said such a venture had a low priority at MSU, which
is in the midst of establishing a two-year medical school.

Herbert Aptheker, historian and
Communist theorist, warned last
night that "any peace in Viet
Nam can only represent surrender
unless it includes independence."
He spoke before a crowd of 750
persons at Rackham Auditorium.
"If the government of North
Viet Nam agreed to anything less
than independence, the people
would not abide by it," he claim-
Late last night, the state Sen-
ate failed to pass a motion which
would have called on Wayne State
University to bar Aptheker from
speaking there today. The mo-
tion, introduced by Sen. Raymond
Dzendzel (D-Detroit) failed to
pass on a tie vote,
Aptheker, who has recently re-
turned from an unauthorized trip
to North Viet Nam, criticized the
methods used by the United States'
In the conduct of the war, say-
ing, "when German armies used
such tactics, we'alled them atroc-;
ities." He drew several parallels
during his speech between the U.S.
and Germany under Hitler.
Optimistic on Peace
However, speaking of the re-
cent series of peace moves and his
own consultation with North Viet-
namese leaders, Aptheker was
much more optimistic about
chances for ending the war.
"Agreements have been offered
by the U.S. that go beyond the
Geneva Agreements," he said.
"The National Liberation Front
and the North Vietnamese rec-
ognize that they are significant
Aptheker added that the first
point of President Johnson's Four-
teen Points were essentially in
agreement with the views of the.
NLF. "If the first of Johnson's
points is sincere, then nothing
more need be done'," he said.
End Aggression
He stressed that he thought
the NLF and the North Vietna-
mese only Wished to end aggres-
sion on their own soil, not to de-
feat the United States.
"The NLF is a broad national
coalition representing the overall
will of the people," he said.
Despite his doubts about the
willingness of the United States
to accept a Communist govern-
ment if it were freely elected, and
what he felt to be the dangers
of hard-line anti-Communism
which "destroyed Germany and
destroyed Japan," Aptheker said,
"My journey convinces me that
peace is on the way in Viet Nam."
"This war is atrocious, intense-
ly immoral and against the best
interests of this country. We must
do what Britain did in Ghana,
what France did in Algeria," he
concluded. "We must stop the
fighting and, then, get out, if we
want to make America the bright-

Protest at Wayne
Meanwhile, a far right-wing vig-
ilante group is reported-to be mo-
bilizing at Wayne State Univer-
sity to disrupt a meeting featur-
ing Aptheker.
Don Lobsinger, head of the
group known as Breakthrough,
said he and other members of the
organization will go to the meet-
ings with the intention of "dis-
rupting them."
Breakthrough has been distrib-
uting a leaflet on the Wayne State
campus calling for a "hall full of
angry and indignant Americans to
give Comrade Aptheker a recep-
tion a traitor deserves."
Demonstrate at Lecture
The leaflet campaign is to cul-

minate in a demonstration on the
campus this morning. Aptheker is
slated to speak there this after-
Dr. J. Don Marsh, associate
dean of students at Wayne State,
told of phone calls to university
officials protesting the scheduled
Aptheker appearance.
Wayne policy is to impose no
censorship on speakers as long as
they are sponsored by recognized
student groupswho apply correct-
ly to bring, the speaker on cam-
pus and as long as the speakers
do not urge or advocate viola-
tions of the state or federal laws.
Marsh said he hopes those at-
tending Aptheker's talk at Wayne
will conduct themselves properly,
but if they do not "the university
will take some action."

Richard E. Van House, '67, new-
ly elected president of Interfra-
ternity Council, emphasized last
night that fraternities must adapt
to the intensified academic atmos-
phere at the University.
To this end, he proposed the
formation of an academic and
cultural relations committee with-
in the administrative wing of IFC.

Other Concerns
In accepting his election as
president, Van House cited three
other major areas which his ad-
ministration intends to concen-
trate on:

-Unity. The fraternity system
must move in the direction of
solidification and take the view
that one fraternity's problems is
the problem of fraternities in
-Services for people outside the
system. Van House proposes com-
munity service projects, scholar-
ships for incoming freshmen, a
campus lecture series and a Greek
week which would include a writ-
System Expansion
-Expansion. Without system
expansion and the establishment
of new chapters, the fraternity
system cannot hope to go far be-
yond the present total of 2900
affiliated men. The system must
attract new chapters or be drown-
ed in a sea of numbers as enroll-
ment grows.

Van House succeeds Richard A.
Hoppe, '66, as IFC president. In
his final report to fraternity presi-
dents last night Hoppe discussed
other problems facing the frater-
nity system.
"House presidents must take a
system perspective beyond immed-
iate, short-term benefits for their
individual houses, better alumni
relations must be developed and
fraternities must make a greater
contribution to the academic com-
munity if they are to survive,"
Hoppe said. Fraternities must also
improve their conduct, Hoppe con-
tinued. "Socialfunctions pledge
programs, and help weeks contra-
dict the ideals with which fraterni-
ties sell themselves," he asid.

TV Editorial Lashes Daily Ad


An editorial broadcast Wednes-
day night by a Detroit television
station called on the University to
"reprimand" The Daily for pub-
lishing an anonymous advertise-
ment of "scurrilous" character.,
The advertisement, which ap-
)eared in Sunday's Daily, asked
female students to sacrifice their
academic averages to allow more
males to enter the upper half of
their class. The ad stated that
"recognition of intellectual devel-
opment should not be dependent
upon a gradepoint ... and military
deferment should not be deter-

tain the required class standing.
The advertisement in The Daily
was placed by five male freshmen

perhaps misguided, but I'm certain

rule, the Board and The Daily
business staff are considering in-
stituting a policy requiring identi-
fication of such announcements as
paid advertisements.

Saltonstall, who will not seek,

Lincoln Day Republican Dinner in
the Michigan Union Ballroom.
Saltonstall, ranking Republican'

speech by giving him firm support
to the Johnson administration's
policies in Viet Nam.
"The road in Viet Warn is not
