Education Budget Growth Slowed by



An emphasis on private rather
than federal sources of loans for
higher education will continue
this year.
Although the amount allotted
for education in President John-
son's budget request continued a
trend of increasing expenditures
for education, the $1.1 billion slice
allotted for higher education does
not significantly increase the
amount of money available for
student financial aid through the
Office of Education.
Plans call for a leveling off to

the number of scholarships, loans,
and work-study programs initiat-
ed by the government, despite ex-
pected increases in enrollment in
colleges and universities.
The President has asked for
authorization of measures to ex-
pand two programs of student
loans to make money available to
students eligible for financial aid
while reducing net budgetary out-
lays by about $100 million. The
measures are designed to reduce
federal money tied up in loans,

and eventually to replace the loan participation by banks in the fed-
provisions of the National Defense eral guaranteed loan concept,j

Education Act.
Johnson's first measure calls
for an extension of an existing
program which provides long-term
loan monies to colleges and uni-
versities to administer The insti-
tution must add to this money at
a 9-1 ratio to create a loan fund
which it may administer itself.
Such a program is in operation at
the University, but has so far been
rather limited in scope, providing
money only at the graduate level.
Johnson's second program will
initiate a campaign to increase the

which is already in effect. Under
the program, long-term loans to
students are granted by commer-
cial banks in their home towns
at six per cent interest. The gov-
ernment pays the interest until
the student completes his educa-
tion at which time the student is
required to repay the loan at three
per cent interest, while the gov-
ernment pays the other three'per

Responsibility to
Students Questioned
By Prof: Sandalow j
Prof. Terrence Sandalow of ther
law school said yesterday that the
University administration's failure1
to act in behalf of four Cinema
Guild leaders arrested for showing
an "obscene" film is "an alarming
Participating in a seminar on
"obscenity and the law," Sandalow
said the administration's state-
ment following the arrest showed
"an incredible picture of some-
one's understanding of the nature
of the University community and
the administration's responsibility
to those who make it up."
The statement issued last week
reads in part: "The University
has indicated on several previous
occasions that students, as citizens,
have the same freedom of speech,
peaceful assembly and right of
petition guaranteed to all citizens
by our constitution. In accepting
these privileges, they also accept
the responsibilities of citizenship."

Sandalow critized the adminis-
tration for failing in "its respon-
sibility of helping to define whatt
rights and responsibilities its stu-
dent citizens have in the larger

chairman Ellen Frank, '68, and

While none of the law professors
commented on the probability of
the Guild personnel being con-
victed, it was said that the Su-
preme Court precedent in the con-
viction of "Eros" publisher Ralph
Ginzburg on obscenity charges
would not be relevant in this case.
'Prurient Interests'
The Court's decision in the,
Ginzburg case was based prima-
rily on the kind of advertising
used to promote "Eros" magazine,
advertising that was judged to be
appealing to "prurient interests."
Since Cinema Guild advertised
"Flaming Creatures" the same way
it advertises all its films, and}
made no mention of any sensuous
characteristics,' it was noted by
Sandalow that the precedent in'
the Ginzburg conviction would be

pressed that this particular case

China may conduct either a space shot or long-range ballistic
missile test launch this year. The Communist Chinese appear
{capable of both, he said.
In the same speech McNamara asserted that the Soviet
Union is taking military measures to strengthen its position in
view of "serious border problems" with Red China. He added that
the Soviet Union in the past year has begun to deploy a limited
antimissile defense around Moscow and has stepped up con-
struction of intercontinental ballistic missile launch sites.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL has re-opened petition-
ink for the Student Advisory Boards-to the Vice-Presidents and
will be accepting petitions until Friday, February 3. Interviews
will begin next week for those people who have already sub-
mitted petitions. Students are still needed for the committees
for Vice-President and chief financial officer Wilbur K. Pier-
pont and for Vice-President for Research Geoffrey Norman.
SGC voted to require the student members of the Ad-
visory Boards to hold regular open meetings once every two weeks.
Two additional meetings may be called between the regularly
scheduled ones at either the request of twenty-five or more stu-
dents or of the president of SGC.
SGC also allotted seventy-five dollars for Ed Robinson, SGC
president, to use for traveling expenses to Washington. Robinson
will be participating in a meeting of twenty student leaders with
with Secretary of State Dean Rusk. The meeting was called
in response to a letter to President Johnson, signed by 200 stu-
dent leaders, that raised questions about the war in Vietnam.
Women's hours have been extended to 1:00 A.M. on Thursday,

ENGINEERING COUNCIL passed a resolution last night con-
demning the Ann Arbor police dept. for confiscating the film
"Flaming Creatures" shown by Cinema Guild last Wednesday
The resolution stated in part that "the belief that any group
may act as a censor for anyone else is indefensible under any
circumstances and it makes no difference if the act of censorship
ocurs within an educational institution or within the community
as a whole."
THE UNIVERSITY BRANCH of the American Association
of University Professors held a panel discussion last night to
consider "Faculty and Student R esponsibility in Decision-
The discusion dwelt on the ambiguous roles of teaching
fellows in formulating curriculum policy on the possibility of in-
stituting a "faculty executive board" to voice faculty demands
to the administration, and or the continuing need to improve the
effectiveness of the Faculty Senate.
Also discussed were the implications 'of last year's student
power controversy.
Participating on the panel were William E. Brown, Jr.,
president of the Faculty Assembly and chairman of SACUA;
Leonard A. Greenbaum of the engineering college; Richard D.
Mann of the psychology department; and Vice President for
Academic Affairs Allan F.'Smith. The meeting was chaired by
Edward S. Bordin of the psychology department.

AAUP Asks Probe
Of Cadet Spying on
Leftist Organizations
The University of Washington's
chapter of the American Associa-
tion of University Professors is
asking a c a d e m i c communities
across the nation to re-evaluate
the campus role of all ROTC pro-
The demands came yesterday as
a result of the disclosure by the
AAUP of secret instruction given
to about 750 ROTC cadets at
Washington last October.
Prof. Roger Stein, chairman of
the Washington AAUP, said last
night that ROTC cadets were ask-
ed to gather information on liberal
or left-wing organizations rang-
ing from the Communist party to
the Student Nonviolent Coordinat-
ing Committee and Students for
a Democratic Society.
Stein also said that training
kits prepared by 6th Army head-;
quarters in San Francisco were
used to inform cadets of the loca-
tions of branches of these 'rgani-'
'He said the kits that were dis-
tributed consisted of three sets of
slides-one showing a map of the
west coast with red dots on places
where dissident organizations had
chapters; a second with a list of_
those organizations, and a third
with an old anti-Communist slo-
gan, "If it looks like a duck, if_
it walks like a duck, and if it lays:
an egg like a duck, then it is a'
A 6th Army spokesman said
that the list was offered as a
warning to students to avoid
groups "that might later be added
to the U.S. Attorney General's list
of alleged subversive organiza-
tions. He denied that the cadets
were asked to spy.
Stein said the information was
released because "though locally
it is a dead issue, we feel an ob-y
ligation to make the rest of thes
nation aware of such practices. it
"The presentation of such rhate-t
iial violates the idea of a com-e
munity of open inquiry than is
needed at a university. I am also,
opposed to the secrecy of a matterf
that could seriously affect thef
freedom of speech and dissent."
Stein added that there was alsoE
the question of a dangerous pre-o
cedent when the military dissem-
inates political information.
Col. D. C. McNair, chairman ofC
the Department Military Sciencel
at the University, who is under
the command of the 6th Army,L
said that this wasthe first time
he had heard anything about such
incidents, and that the Univer-
sity's Military Science DepartmentF
has never received such literature.t

Discipline in
Drug Raids
Information Program
To Tell Students of
Law, Health Dangers
No disciplinary action has yet
been taken against 13 Wayne State
Univeristy students arrested in a
Detroit narcotics raid Tuesday
night, J a m e s P. McCormick,
Wayne's vice-president for student
affairs said yesterday.
The students could, however,
possibly be suspended pending a
hearing, he said.
The students' academic status
will be decided by anad hoc non-
academic disciplinary committee
which has not acted yet due to a
"lack of complete information,"
according to Duncan Sells, for-
merly Director of Student Organi-
zations here and now Dean of stu-
dents at Wayne and chairman of
the committee.
,56 persons were arrested In six
locations .on Tuesday, though only
16 were detained and charged with
violating the state narcotics law.
Eight of those detained were
Wayne students. Robert Buckeye,
an English instructor at Wayne,
was also involved in the raids, but
was not indicted.
SDS Action
In the meantime the Wayne
chapter of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society plans to circulate
a petition stating that the uni-
versity should not be involved in
the case, and the Wayne adminis-
tration is preparing a progrn to
enlighten students on the medical
and legal implication of narcotics
The SDS 'petition says that the
university should not involve it-
self in the off-camnpus activities
of students. SDS also questions
the legitimate existence of the dis-
ciplinary committee.
McCormick announced that the
administration was preparing ma-
terial to educate the students as
to the legal and medical implica-
tions of narcotics use. He said that
the administration was "aware
that there was a potentil drug
problem but we were unaware of
the size of it
Bill of Student Rights
Chuck Larson, the student pres-
ident of the 'student-faculty coun-
cil indicated that the non-aca-
demic disciplinary concern com-
mittee was also preparing a bill
of student rights and responsi-
bilities which would evaluate stu-
dent conduct by its adherence to
the broad educational purposes of
the university.
He said that the university
should not in principle concern
itself with off-campus student
conduct because that is "the
realm of civil authority," and be-
cause "the university has not
issued any specific standards de-
lineating acceptable off-campus
Excitement incited by the De-
troit arrests has not reached the
surface yet in Ann Arbor, accord-
ing to W. Daniel Fitzpatrick, Act-

He said that the concern for the
prevalence of narcotics is most
strong among those only superfi-
cially acquainted with the actual
situation at the University.

Hatcher said the University posi-

first meet the needs of the two
existing medical schools before
making any new commitments.
'U' To Increase Size
Carl Brahce, medical school in-
formation officer, said the Univer-
sity will increase its entering class
by 10 students next falsl, bringing
the total to 220, the "maximum
Ipossible with present factlities."
Dr. Ernest Gardner, dean of the
WSU medical school, described the
state board's action as a "logical
"It has been recognized for some
time that we need a third medical

planning for an entering class of

much importance to it at this time
because we do not have the money
to implement it. We have a com-
mitment of $24 million to enlarge
the Wayne State University medi-
cal school and other obligations.
The money just isn't there."
MSU Provost Howard Neville,
speaking for the university admin-
istration, said MSU will ask "for
only a small amount of dollars"
from this legislative session for
planning money. He said MSU
will also ask the Legislature to
match a federal grant for a life
science building to provide a nu-
cleus for the school.
$7.5 to $9 Million
Neville estimated the csot at be-
tween $7.5 and $9 million. The

National Institutes of Health has
pledged it will pay half the cost
of the building.
Other new facilities anticipated
include a medical center with a
300-bed university hospital and an
expanded student infirmary with
200 to 250 beds, and four new life
science buildings in addition to one
now being built.
The state board recommenda-
tions were the result of a report
from its Citizens' Committee *on
Health Care Education, issued last
November. The citizens' committee
urged expansion of the University
