Drive Shows,
Council Candidate
Warns: Students May,
Steal City Elections
The , efforts of the Student
Housing Association to get stu-
dents registered to vote in city
elections April 4 may be paying
Robert Bodkin, '67, chairman of
SHA, said one measure of the suc-
less of the campaign is that "nine
out of ten candidates for city
council have accepted invitations"
to be interviewed by students
March 30.
The candidates will be inter-
viewed by members of the execu-
tive board of SHA, and any other
students SHA invites. The meeting
w ll be open to the public.
Bodkin said that SHA will not
give any candidates "explicit en-
dorsement," but said that by pub-
licizing the views of city council
candidates on housing issues SHA
will be able to give "implicit en-
In a letter to voters of the sec-
ond ward, backers of James Rieck-
er, Republican candidate for City
Council from that ward, Warns
that all Republicans must vote,
event If by absentee ballot, "least
'non-residents' steal the elections."
The author of the letter, James
Brinkerhoff, chairman of the
committee backing Riecker, com-
mented last night that a "goodly
percentage," perhaps in excess of
200 of new registrants in the city
came from the second ward, which
includes' the central campus and
adjoining areas.
The letter noted that "nearly
1500 new voters" had registered to
vote before the close of the regis-
tration period and called this a
"most disturbing trend." Brinker-
hoff commented last night that
the letter was printed before the
close of the registration period,
and he estimated the actual figure
was about 1368.
Bodkin said he felt the figure
would, rise above that. He was
hopeful that between 600 and 1000
students had registered.
Brinkerhoff asserted that, his
figures were from the city clerk's
office but could not give a break-
down as to the number of regis-
trants who were students.
The recent surge in registration
is probably due in part to the ef-
forts of SEA which has, through
a mailing campaign and through
publicizing its activities before
groups like the City Council,
tried to increase the number of
registered students.
in, addition, SHA has aided
those who wished to register by
explaining the procedures and em-
phasizing the city regulations on
eligibility, Bodkin said.
However, it is impossible to es-
* timate the influence of other
groups in this increased registra-
tion. Organizations other than
SHA have also been urging stu-
dents to register and vote.
The registration is part of a
move by SHA and other groups to
assert student power in a desire
to have an influence over future
city housing projects.
Graduate Student Council, In-
terfraternity Council, the Campus
Republicans and the Young Demo-
crats have all endorsed the SHA
program, Bodkin said.
Although student interest in the
upcoming city elections, as meas-
ured by voter registration, is far
less than it was during the 1964
presidential campaign, some effect
has obviously been felt.

DA NANG, SOUTH VIET NAM ()-A general strike closed
down most stores in Da Nang today in continuing agitation
against the government of Nguyen Cao Ky.
About 2,000 persons gathered in a park where leaflets were
passed out calling for an end to military government and a
return to civilian rule.
There were no disorders. The strike and protest meeting
were the latest in a series of antigovernment moves since the
removal of Lt.'Gen. Nguyen Chanh Thi as commander of the
1st Corps area earlier this month. It generally is believed that he
was ousted because of reluctance to go along with orders of the
Saigon government.
UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECTS sighted in this area will
be investigated by the United States government. The U.S.
Defense Department and the U.S. Air Force have been officially
"invited" into the widening investigation of unidentified flying
objects seen over Washtenaw County three times in the last
eight days.
Rep. Weston E. Vivian of the Second Congressional District
told Sheriff Douglas J. Harvey Monday night that the incidents
"certainly should be looked into by the U.S. government," after
Harvey told him that he had been ignored in repeated attempts
to contact federal officials about the sightings. Vivian said he will
make an official inquiry to the Defense Department and the
Air Force.
The Air Force said yesterday it was calling in H. Allen Hynek,
chairman of the Dearborn Observatory at Northwestern University
in Evanston, Ill., to investigate the sightings. Hynek is scientific
consultant to "Project Blue Book," the official program to track
down flying object reports.
March 30 and April 11 to determine the bargaining units for
University nonacademic employes. The State, County, and Muni-
cipal Employes, the Teamsters, the Operating Engineers, and the

represent the employes. The board will decide who is to be the
official representative.
The AFSCME claims strong support among University Em-
ployes. They say this support runs as high as 96 per cent among
workers in the University's laundry operations.
Benjamin Moore, president of AFSCME Local 1513, said
further organizational activities b his union are dependent upon
the State Labor Mediation Board decision. His union has joined
forces with the University Student Economic Union to organize
University workers.

Give Report
On Conduct
Executive Comnmittee
Investigation Shows
No Group Violations
A report released last night by
the Interfraternity Council Execu-
tive Committee into the case of
the alleged promiscuous activities
of a 20 year old girl indicated
that there was "no significant evi-
dence that any fraternity had
been guilty of a group conduct
Richard Van House, '67, presi-
dent of IFC, roughly defined the
term "group violation" as "any
deliberate action by a representa-
tive group of men in the house
with the consent of the officers."
The report went on to say that
although individual fraternity men
had been involved, the girl had
made the majority of her contacts
in bars and "there were no facts
presented to indicate that she had
ever spent the night in any fra-
ternity house."
Van House maintained that "the
Executive Committee as the
spokesman for the fraternity sys-
tem had an obligation to investi-
gate the situation and to bring the
results before the eyes of the
University and the public."
Sources have indicated that the
Office of Student Affairs does not
plan to release the results of its
investigation and would have pre-
fered that the IFC committee do!
likewise. Charles A. Judge, assis-
tant to the director of student
affairs had "no comment" on
the committee's action.
Included in the report was a
statement regretting that frater-
nity men were involved at all,
since "each fraternity is pledged
to the highest of moral values.''
In the absence of group violation'
however, "the Executive Commit-
tee can take no further action
on this matter.;
The investigation was conducted,
by a subcommittee of three mem-
bers of the Executive Committee
A member of the investigating
committee said that the commit-
tee talked to individuals in all 45
fraternities and found that "every-;
one was cooperative and frank.",
Two appeals by Zeta Psi and by
Delta Sigma Phi on their con-
viction of violating pledge rules
were also heard at the meeting.
The Executive Committee in both,
cases upheld the previous de-
cisions of guilt but reduced the
amount of the fines. In the case;
of Zeta Psi, the fine was reduced
from $230 to $115 and in the{
case of Delta Sigma Phi from;
$200 to $140.
The original violation involved
the wearing of gunny sacks during
initiation week, which was for-
bidden by the IFC pledging bylaws{
passed last fall.

Remains on
AEC's List
One of Six Sites for
Particle Accelerator
Still in Competition
A site near Ann Arbor in North-
field Township yesterday survived
as one of six possible locations
for the Atomic 'Energy Commis-
sion's 200 billion volt (BEV) nu-
clear particle accelerator.
A committee from the National
Academy of Sciences presented the
names of its final selections, nar-
rowing the field from 85 sites
originally competing for the $375
million accelerator, the world's
Competing with Northfield
Township are sites near Denver,
Colorado; Madison, Wisconsin;
Sacramento, California; Chicago,
Illinois; and the Brookhaven Na-
tional Laboratory on Long Island,
New York.
From 85 Cites
The narrowing of the field from
the 85 sites picked last September
does not necessarily mean that
the AEC will make its final choice
from these six.
AEC officials on March 10 said
they did not feel obligated to limit
themselves to the Academy's rec-
ommendations. They said they
reserved the right to expand the
list before making a final choice.
The choice of sites was based
on such criteria as geologic sta-
bility, accessibility, and availabil-
ity of water, necessary to the
operation of the plant.
The AEC has 'indicated it may
take several months more before
selecting the final winner of what
Gov. Roger D. Branigin of In-
diana has termed the "scientific
prize of the century."
The selection committee said
the major consideration in the
selections was the location of
"either the nucleus of a strong
accelerator design group or one
of the nation's outstanding uni-
versities nearby." If the North-
field site is selected, the Univer-
sity is expected to have a great
deal of connection with its design
and operation.
Airport Proximity
Other points mentioned in favor
of the Ann Arbor location were
proximity to Detroit Metropolitan
Airport and the moderate climate
of the lake region which would
hold down construction costs.
The BEV construction, however,
has yet to be approved by Con-
The machine would be designed

nearly a mile in diameter.
It would take about eight years
to build, cost about $60 million a
year to run, aind employ about
2,300 scientists and technicians.
Another 1,000 scientists would be
expected to visit it annually for
research projects.
The AEC estimated the installa-
tion would employ about 2,000
persons and have an annual op-
erating budget of $60 million. Con-
struction time, after authorization
and appropriation of money, was
figured at six to eight years.

described the role of that body the Israeli struggle for independ-
as being one of making the world ence:

-A desire "to have in Israel an
open door which could be used in
order to solve the Jewish migra-
tion problem."
-The necessity "to the future
of Jewish people, culture, and civ-
ilization for them to have a coun-
try in which they would be their
own masters."
-The wish to "achieve the in-
dispensable key to human pro-
gress, namely 'a condition of being
responsible for oneself."
Mass immigration has been one
of the major problems Israel has
had to face, Harman said.
Major problems ca sed by immi-
gration were: changing the occu-
pational structure of the immi-
grants to that of a viable devel-
oped economy, and integrating the
diverse elements to form a basis
for cooperation, understanding and
Harman identified a number of
unifying factors. Among these
were: the "challenge of pioneer-

defend the country against attack,
the great strides in economic de-
velopment, and Israel's basic phi-
losophy of integration--discrimi-

to find a new cultural and spir-

of the European one by the Nazis.
Without this center, Judaism's
