Noted Expert
Day-Long Teach-In
On Chinese Affairs
To Be Held in April
Sources have indicated that
Owen Lattimore, America's great-
est expert on China "before the
McCarthy era, will come from
England to participate in a China
teach-in on April 3.
The teach-in itself will consist
" Speeches and discussions on
internal China, modern Chinese
history and current affairs will
compose the afternoon sessions.
Later in the afternoon faculty
will conduct seminars in Mason
Hall on Chinese history and
0 U.S.-Chinese relations will be
discussed at night beginning with
two speeches, one defending the
government's policy and the other
criticizing it. Discussions and sem-
inars will follow the speeches.
A spokesman said the China
teach-in will parallel last year's
Viet Nam teach-in. He said he
hoped this teach-in will act as an
impetus to analysis of U.S. policy.
Abysmal Ignorance
Di Lorenzi felt that America's
current policy is allowed because
of the overall ignorance of the
natures of the questions involved.
"The people do not have enough
information to challenge the gov-
ernment," he said.
Di Lorenzi calls our knowledge
of China "abysmally deficient"
and feels this conference can help
supplement it. He felt it might
also make people aware of the
enormity of the problems in this
area so they could become in-
terested enough to use the facili-
ties the University offers in Asian
Prof. Anatol Rapoport, of the
Mental Health Research Institute,
one of the sponsors of the teach-
in, feels it will bring to light
" . the history, conditions and
problems of the country, issues not
sufficiently discussed."
Rapoport says that while this
one conference will probably not
have any immediate effect on our
policies in Asia, the cumulative
w effect of wide discussion and
knowledge of the teach-in, could
be important. He also felt this
teach-in will show the government
that there is ". . . a strong and
enlightened group of people who
do not support the government's
Asian policies."
Besides faculty from the Univer-
sity there will be people from
Wayne State University, Michigan
State University, Western Michi-
gan University, and Eastern
Michigan. The people sponsoring
the conference are also asking
the State Department to send
representatives to defend the
government's position.
From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. concen-
trating on internal China and
modern Chinese history, there will
be two major speeches on China's
modern history, regional relations
and current affairs. Later there
will be a discussion on China's

A resolution censuring Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity for
"having a party whose theme could be regarded 'in poor taste by
a number of members of the community" was passed last night by
the Fraternity Presidents' Assembly.
Charges had been leveled against DKE fraternity by Nelson
Lande, '67, president of Zeta Beta Tau, for holding a "Nazi theme
party," complete with swastikas, a band dressed up as Nazis,
and a member delivering Hitler's inferno speech,
Mark Lippincott, '67, president of DKE, maintained, that
the party had an "Iron Cross theme and that there were no
purposefully political overtones to the party." He admitted,
however, that some members "did get out of hand near the end
of the party and that these members were disciplined."
Included in the FPA resolution was a statement recognizing
that "the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity has subsequently exer-
cised proper responsibility in this matter."
Michigan Attorney General Frank Kelley will release his
legal opinion on Regent Eugene B. Power's business relationship
with the University at 9:15 a.m. today in Lansing. His investi-
gation into a possible conflict of interest on the part of Regent
Power, who is president of University Microfilms Inc. came after
a Daily story last Oct. 23.
The opinion is expected to provide the definitive answer as
to whether or not a conflict of interest situation exists.

At its- regular meeting last night, Student Government
Council moved to support University President Harlan Hatcher's
right to express his view on Viet Nam, expressing their dissatis-
faction with the criticism leveled at him in a recent Detroit
News edtorial for speaking out publicly on government policy.
Myra Roper, lecturer in Chinese education at Monash Uni-
versity in Melbourne, Australia, will show two movies and present
a speech on China today at 4 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of
the UGLI. Miss Roper, who is a famous Australian television
personality, is considered to be an expert on contemporary
China, having visited the country in 1958, 1963 and 1965.
The Engineering Council last night passed a resolution
supporting the present policy of the Selective Service with regard
to deferments of college students.
The resolution stated that a random draft selection among
college students, as proposed by the literary college faculty,
would be detrimental to the national interest because "it com-
pletely disregards the principle of efficient use of manpower on
which our society is based."
University students won more Woodrow Wilson fellowships
than any other school except Harvard University, it was an-
nounced yesterday. With 39 winners, the University more than
doubled the total number of students awarded the fellowships
last year.
Three winners omitted from yesterday's list in The Daily
were: Barry Bluestone, '65; Fred L. Bookstein, '65, and William
S. Moran, '66.
Long Distance
A group of students at Michigan State University have
accused the administration and Student Publications Board of
"monopoly censorship" for the alleged suppression of several
independent student publications. The students claim that it is
impossible for any independent student publications to financially
and legally exist under the present regulations at MSU.
The charges involve an independent newspaper, "The Paper,"
an independent literary magazine and two student political pub-
lications. The Student Publications Board has sole authority
over all student publications sold on campus. "The Paper" has
managed to exist temporarily through the use of a fund drive
permit obtained through the student government, but has been
unsuccessful in its attempt to secure sales permission from the
administration or the publications board.

Another sit-in at the local draft board? No. Maybe they're waiting to get tickets to tonight's playoff game at Iowa City? Wrong again.
These die-hard film enthusiasts queued up early last night in a line stretching down the corridors of the Architecture Auditorium,
awaiting the beginning of the second session of the Fourth Ann' Arbor Creative Arts Festival. Mixed audiences of University students
and area residents saw experimental films ranging from camp trivia to serious drama. Among those movies shown were "The Flicker,"
which was preceeded by the warning that it "might cause epileptic fits for which the producers were not responsible" and which con-
sisted of 20 minutes of flickering, blank film. More detailed reviews appear on Page 2.

Hays said that a recently formed
committee for Tuskegee relation-

dent and faculty exchanges be-
tween the two literary colleges,
and Haber said that his "general
impression is affirmative" and he
feels "this beginning is worth
working on further."
Tuskegee Institute, a predomi-
nately Negro university in south-
ern Alabama has been in close co-
operation with the University for
several years, and this year an
exchange program was instituted.
Last fall *12 Tuskegee students at-
tended the University, and pres-
ently there are seven University
students at Tuskegee. In addition
Prof. Kaufman of the philosophy
department is spending the year
here as an exchange teacher.
Favorable Reaction
The seven University students,
as well as Kaufman, haveSaid
they believe the exchange to be
extremely interesting and valuable
and are all enjoying their stay
Haber said that he and Hays
came here to "get the feel of the
situation" and he expressed his
belief that the United States "has
an overwhelming obligation to
raise the quality of education for
Negro youth." He added that a
school with a wide range of ex-
perience, such as the University,
can contribute toward this school.
Inerease Participation
According to Hays, until re-
cently the exchanges have been
handled primarily by the Office
of Academic Affairs. "Although
the literary college has just come
into it," he said, "we have felt for

-To recruit teachers through
the -different departments. This
would enable the college to dis-
cover where teachers are needed
so that both Tuskegee and the
University could "train advan-
-To inform the literary school
counselors about the program.
Hays felt that, if the counselors
were enthusiastic about this pro-
gram, they could interest students
in it.
-To try to get Tuskegee faculty
members to come for the summer
session at the University as an
alternative to the regular term.
Hays said that this would cor-
respond to the University's effort
to expand the third term, and
would not interfere with the reg-
ular Tuskegee school year.

Hatcher Sees Need for Universities To
Work for Stronger U.S.-Japanese Ties

University President Harlan
Hatcher said yesterday there is a
need for greater intellectual inter-
change between the United States
and Japan.
Hatcher has just returned from
* a six-day conference of U.S. and
Japanese education leaders, held
in Tokyo. The conference dealt
primarily with "the role of univer-
sities in developing mutual under-
standing between the two nations."
The conference recognized that
"in modern society the university
is the most important single in-
stitution for the preservation of
our culture;" Hatcher said. "The
problem universities face in both
countries and the opportunities
they have are both great and
highly similar.

The center has one of this
country's most extensive collec-
tions of material on Japan, he
said. One of the great barriers
between the two nations is the
lack of materials and the lack of
translations of documents and lit-
erature of each country availaple
to the other.
Lack of Information
. Many documents are in the
hands of collectors and not scho-
lars, and the universities should
be able to find and microfilm
many of these. The university
presses should be able to turn out
translations of Japanese works,
he added.
"Superficiality" of personal con-
tacts is another reason for lack
of accord between the two na-
tions. In a communique which
Hatcher helped draw up, the con-
ference participants concluded

flight fares for students, using the
same half-fare system now in ef-
fect for domestic U.S. flights.
Hatcher said one of Japan's ma-
jor problems is the lack of open-
ings for qualified students in its
universities. He felt the shortage
of space is due to the fact the
Japanese lack the American con-
ception of mass university educa-
tion. They are beginning to change
their feelings, Hatcher said.
The conference also recommend-
ed that American and Japanese
committees on cultural and edu-
cational cooperation be created to.
"review, explore and facilitate
joint programs for the exchange
of information, st u d e n ts and
Viet Nam Attitudes
Hatcher said when he spoke
with Japanese educators about
Viet Nam that three major points

since Japan is bound by treaty to
the U.S., clearly anything that
deeply involves the U.S. in Asia
also involves Japan."
After the second world war,
Japan renounced war, and the
creation of Japanese armies was
outlawed. Article 9 of Japan's con-
stitution declares that war is an
unexpurgated evil. That was part
of America's contrib.ution to Ja-
pan's reconstruction, Hatcher said.
Today, the people have difficulty
reconciling that Article 9 with the
Viet Nam war.
Kennedy Idea
The conference, officially called
the Third U.S.-Japan Conference
on Cultural and Educational In-
terchange, a biannual meeting
that alternates between the two
countries, grew out of an idea
espoused by the late President
John Kennedy and the late Pre-
