Late World News
SAIGON (A)-Strong elements of the U.S. 1st Infantry
Division stalked the Viet Cong north of Saigon early today in a
large search-and-destroy operation that could build up into one
of the war's major engagements.
The operation was one of the biggest planned for the
division since it arrived in Viet Nam, and it took the infantrymen
into an area long'controlled by the Viet Cong.
Incumbent Le Roy A. Cappaert defeated Dr. Lawrence F. Mc-
Donald, a University urologist and John Birch Society section
leader, 1216 to 317 in the fifth ward Democratic City Council
primary last night. In the fifth war Republican runoff, J. Dale
Boyd, a Bendix Corporation engineer defeated George F. Lemble,
.chairman of the Washtenaw County Conservatives 663 to 568. In
the only other contest, Robert F. Jagitsch won 688 votes to gain
the 4th ward Republican candidacy from Edith L. Dale, with
311 votes, and George K. Simon with 329. Dr. Edward Pierce, an
incumbent, took 171 votes in an uncontested position on the
fourth ward Democratic ticket.
Voting in the two wards averaged 35 per cent of registered
citizens, slightly higher than expected in a contest which City
Clerk John P. Bently said "ran normally."
Two University students who had been reclassified 1-A as a
result of participating in the draft board sit in last fall had
their 2-S &eferrments returned to them yesterday, the third and
fourth students to successfully appeal the reclassification action.
4 Paul Kanter, '67, and Richard Gordon, '69, were notified yesterday
that their :local draft boards had returned their student def err-
ments. 14 students were reclassified as a result of the draft-
board sit in of last October.
The Selective Service System says it expects to close a con-
tract within a few days under which a college qualification test
will be made available to some 2 million college students and high
school seniors.
Local draft boards will be authorized to consider for student
deferment those who make a satisfactory grade-the exact level
yet to be determined-or who maintain required class standings.
It is planned to supply the local boards with the test results
before colleges open next fall. Plans are for the first test to be
given some time in May.
A spokesman said today the exact date for the first registra-
tion and first test cannot be set until the contract is signed.
However, the registration will be held at least three weeks
before the test is given, so he said it was entirely logical that the
first deadline for registration might come in late April.
Candidates running for the offices of Panhellenic Association
indicated a possible change in sorority rush from the winter to
the fall term during their speeches last night.
Each house will phone in its individual tally to the Panhel
office which will announce the final results tonight. A law passed
by Panhel's President's Council requires representation at the
campaign speeches to vote in the election.
Petitioning opened yesterday for positions on SGC. As of yet
no positions have been picked up. "Returns won't be in for at
least 3-4 days," said SGC executive vice president Charlie
Cooper, '66. "It's still in its embryonic stage. Everyone is playing
it cagey. No one is willing to take a stand yet."
"It's a game, who's coming out with whom and for what, at
this stage," said Ed Robinson possible "Group" candidate for
president. "The longer it stays quiet the better," he added.

The Professional Theatre Program's Play-of-the-Month series
will present "The Trojan Women" Thursday at 8:30 in Hill
Auditorium. The work won six important drama awards during
its lengthy New York run. The translation of Euripides' master-
piece was provided by Edith Hamilton.
Long Distance
Yale President Kingman Brewster Jr. has upheld the right to
campus dissent in a speech to alumni, many of whom have been
disturbed over Prof. Staughton Lynd's Viet Nam protests.
Brewster did not mention Lynd by name, but he said there
is no place for paternalism or pressure in a free university.
"We are engaged in education, not indoctrination," Brewster
said. "Our faculty is engaged in the discovery of truth and we
expect them to do this on their own and without university
Brewster's speech drew a standing ovation from the alumni.

that Gov. George Romney should
be harshly criticized for having
not made this his policy earlier.
He said two changes are ecsen-
tial to solving the problem 'of in-
equitability in the subsidy plan.
First, he said that the basis on
which the low-cost University
housing should be allotted to stu-
dents on the basis of need. The
second essential change, he indi-
cated, would be the institution of
a state income tax which would be
graduated, taking the burden off
the poor.

Bill Labeled
Direct Result
Of 'U' Probe
Entire Subcommittee
On Higher Education
Supports Proposal
Three measures will be intro-
duced in the State House today
providing state funds for the con-
struction of low-cost student
housing,' subsidization of tuition
costs for in-state students and the
establishment of university oper-
ated bookstores.
The bills will be proposed by
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit),
chairman of the House subcom-
mittee on higher education, and
will be signed by Reps. William
Ryan (D-Detroit), George F.
Montgomery (D-Detroit), William

Faxon said the bill is an out-
growth of his subcommittee's in-
vestigation of the University last
Variety of Housing
Through the creation of a
Higher Education Housing Au-
thority, the state would be able
to construct a variety of housing
facilities, including apartments.
Rent under the plan would be
prohibited from exceeding the
actual costs of operation, and in-
terest and principle charges for
the necessary bond issues.
The authority, which would be
empowered to float up to $150
million in bonds, would also be
able to acquire existing private or
university owned housing. Pre-
liminary planning costs will be met
through appropriations from the
state's general fund and would not
be reflected in rent costs. The
authority would be able to qualify
for federal funds and would not
be restricted to public institutions.
Cuts in Living Costs
Faxon estimates that if the bill
is enacted, cuts in living cost will
range between 25 to 40 per cent.
A second bill calls for the set-
ting up of a tuition grant plan for
in-state students. Under the plan,
the state would pay up to $300 of
first year tuition costs at any state
or private university. Students re-
ceiving scholarships would not re-
ceive benefits, unless their assist-
ance was less than $300, in which
case the state would make up the
difference. Freshman state stu-
dents here would have to pay only
$48 for a full year tuition. Faxon
expressed a hope that in the fu-
ture the state would also be able
to provide money for sophomore
tuition costs.
Student Book Fund
A third measure further calls
for the creation of a student book
fund, under which universities op-
erating bookstores would be eligi-
ble to receive 50 cents per stu-
dent, in reimbursement for costs.
The fund would act as an incen-
tive for state universities present-
ly not having student bookstores.
"It is the duty of the state,"
Faxon said, "to provide maximum
educational opportunities at mini-
mum costs to the family and to
the students themselves." Faxon
commented that the ever increas-
ing college costs have placed a
tremendous burden on the middle

income family. The student who
comes from the middle-income
family and may have too much
money to obtain a scholarship now
is taken into consideration, he
added. Faxon estimated his plans
would cut costs of obtaining an
education from 50 to 100 per cent,
depending on what university the

"The end products of British
and American higher education
are similar in terms of quality
and amount of knowledge," ob-
served Visiting Prof. H. C. Allen,
professor of American history at
the University of London. But he
noted that the two educational
processes vary greatly.

All students don't start to' spe-
cialize in their majors-or, as the
British say, the course in which
they "read"-while still in high
school. "You don't enter college
until you're 18, but if you want to
get a scholarship, as I did, you
must prepare yourself."
,British students do not pass or
fail individual~courses every four
or five months. as in the TTnited.
