r unds To Increase
Public Health School
Facilities, 'Enrollment
By STEVE WILDSTROM I
A Department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare grant of $3,-
475,917 for construction of an ad-
dition 'to the School of Public
Health was announced yesterday
by Sen. Philip A. Hart (D-Mich).
The grant represents part of a
$6.6 million project which, when
completed, will;greatly enlarge the
facilities of the public health
school and make room available
for at least an additional 85 stu-
dents in the school. The remaind-
er of the project not covered by
the HEW grant will be funded by
a $2 million donation by the Kel-
logg Foundation and an expected
additional federal grant.

Extension
The project will be built as an
extension to the existing public
health school building on Obser-
vatory St. A new wing will be
constructed along the back side
of the present building on the
second and third story levels. In
addition, a new six-story building
will be built on the east side of
the existing structure and will be
connected by a two-story bridge,
HEW regulations require that
architectural work on grant re-
quests be well advanced by the
time the grant is ready for final
approval. As a result, planning for
the expansion is currently in the;
final detail stage. Dean Myron E.
Wegman of the public health
school said that he expects con-
struction contracts to be opened'
for bidding by July and hopes
construction to begin by autumn
of 1967.
Shortage
The University's public health
school is one of only 13 in the
United States. Of these, one is
located in Hawaii and another in
Puerto Rico. Because of an in-'
creased demand for persons train-
ed in public health and a shortage
of training facilities, Wegman
foresees no difficulties in finding
students to fill the places made
available through expansion.
The school's present building
was begun in 1941 and completed
a year later. The original struc-
ture was financed by funds from
the Kellogg and Rockefeller foun-
dations. In 1959, a research wing
was constructed with funds from
the Kellogg Foundatiorn and the
U.S. Public Health Service.

Late World News
By The Associated Press
BALTIMORE, MD.-The co-editors of a student newspaper
at Johns Hopkins University, suspended for printing a satire on
President Johnson, were reinstated by school administrators.
The unsigned article in the News-Letter named President
Johnson on a "Man of the Year" ballot along with Richard Speck,
accused of a Chicago mass murder; Texas slayer Charles Whit-
man; and the Cincinnati strangler. It also jokingly called John-
son a "mass murderer."
After a closed session, school officials, headed by Dr. Milton
S. Eisenhower, university president, said that Henry J. Korn
and Melvin R. Shuster had been reinstated as students but the
matter had been referred to the school's Student Council.
The Student Council voted unanimously Monday night to
establish a 10-man committee to study the structure of the
school newspaper.

SACRAMENTO, CALIF.-Gov. Ronald Reagan accused top
state university and college officials yesterday of needlessly
frightening parents and students by "precipitate and unwarrant-
ed" barring of new students in reaction to his economy drive.
The Republican chief executive made clear his dissatisfaction
with those who have strongly criticized his cost-cutting campaign.
He didn't mention them by name, but Reagan clearly re-
ferred to University of California President Clark Kerr and the
college system chancellor, Glenn S. Dumke.
Both men have temporarily. halted admissions for the next
school year until they find out just what Reagan's demands for
economies will do to their capacity to handle new students.
Reagan's comments came at 'his second formal news con-
ference as governor.
He opened the conference by reading a two-page statement
reacting to criticism of his economy drive in education, which
has seen him hanged in effigy at three college campuses.
SOUTH QUAD'S CONTROVERSIAL open door visiting hour
policy may be reinstituted by the Residence Hall Board of
Governors Friday. The board discussed the policy yesterday, but
delayed announcement of a decision until the end of the week.
South Quad Director Thomas Fox said last night that board
members seemed very receptive to the students' desire for per-
mission to entertain visitors' of the opposite sex with their doors
closed during special visitors hours.
Fox introduced the policy on an experimental basis last'
November, but it was suspended last week at the request of
several faculty members to permit a review by the board.
LANSING-Applications now are available for a new round
of student deferment tests, State Selective Service reports.
Applications must be postmarked no later than Feb. 10. Tests
will be taken March 11 and 31 and April 8. The test scores will
be used by local boards to determine the eligibility of registrants
for student deferments.
The tests will be administered at college centers located at
Ann Arbor, Berrien Springs, Dearborn, Detroit, East Lansing,
Flint, Grand Rapids, Houghton, Kalamazoo, Marquette, Mount
Pleasant, Saginaw, Sault Ste. Marie. Traverse City and Ypsilanti.
Selective Service headquarters said about 50,000 Michigan
men currently are deferred as college students compared to
about 60,000 a year ago.

Rothenburger Says
Anti-Viet Nam Actions

Voice political party, the local
chapter of Students for a Demo-

enburger. '67, as its chairman and
named a new executive committee

The nominees for chairman nar-

Rothenburger indicated that

Voice has not considered the re-
solution of the SDS National Com-

anti-draft unions and the inciting
of protest among those men in

However, there are several other
areas of the Knauss the commit-
tee is still working on. These in-
Ilude:
"The obligation of faculty to
devote time and energy to students
and student activities outside the
classroom,
"The possibility of allowing a
student heavily involved in Uni-
versity activities to take a reduced
credit role."
In keeping with its view that
important meetings should be

It will report to the assembly

Organization
Advocates
Referendum
City Peace Group
Urges Ballot Addition
Concerning Viet Nain
By REGINA ROGOFF
A petition is being circulated
around Ann Arbor urging that a
referendum on the war in Vietnam
be placed on the April 3 city elec-
tion ballot.
The petition is sponsored by an
amorphous group of people, In-
cluding University faculty and
students, who call themselves the
Citizens for New Politics.
The organization grew out of
the Boulding peace campaign and
consists of approximately 20 in-
dividuals who supported Elisa
Boulding and her platform in the
November elections, although Mrs.
Boulding is not involved in the
new group.
Question
The petition itself is identical
to the Dearborn referendum that
iwas voted on in the last election.
It states, "We want to put the
following on the Ann Arbor city
ballot: Are you in favor of a cease-
fire and a withdrawal of American
troops from Vietnam so that the
Vietnamese people can settle their
own problems?"
According to members of the
group there is no specific clause
in the city charter concerning
referendums. There is no official
way to force a referendum In Ann
Arbor other than by exerting
moral pressure. It is ultimately
up to the city council to decide
whether or not the referendum
will appear on the ballot and what
the exact wording will be.
In other areas of Michigan a
petition containing the signatures
of five per cent of the voting
population is sufficient to place
a referendum on the ballot. The
group hopes that by obtaining the
equivalent of five per cent of the
Ann Arbor population, or 1800
signatures, they will be able to
demonstrate a substantial interest
in the issue and thereby get it on
the ballot.
Goals
Prof. Thomas Mayer of the so-
ciology department described the
group goals as trying to create a
"viable form of political activity
outside the two major political
parties."
Members of the group are con-
cerned with promoting widespread
support for the anti-war referen-
dum and arousing public interest
in the peace movement.

The committee is presently
working on a statement of pur-
pose that would more clearly out-
line its position. While its major
activity at the moment is the
referendum, the group.is also con-
cerned about the more general
problems of both domestic and
foreign policy.

interests and prevented consider-
atloh of many smaller issues, such
as the hours problem.
"SGC is still recovering from
the movement," Miss Sampson
said. "and nothing is being done
on the problem right now. A lot
depends on what happens at the
Council meeting Thursday." A dis-
cussion of SGC's present status
on campus is expected to pre-
occupy the meeting.
"With enough interest, Cutler
might change the present rules
even without SGC's recommen-
dations," Miss Sampson added.
The question of whether or not
sophomore women's present cur-
ifews should be abolished and
,apartment privileges granted was
ioriginally brought to campus at-
tention by Housing Director John
Feldkamp, who asked for recom-
mendations from dormitory and
housing officials.
Director of Oxford Housing Wil-
liam Ryan presented a detailed
report giving the opinions of the
Oxford staff and students, along
with the personal recommenda-
tion that sophomore hours be
eliminated but the requirement
that sophomore women live in
University approved housing con-
tinued.
A similar opinion was expressed
by Gerald Burkhouse, Director of
Lloyd, Couzens and Betsy Bar-
bour residence halls, who felt that
late permission should be given to
women the first semester of their
sophomore year and key privileges
extended the second semester.
