The unified budget program,

First Meeting
Elliott Ballard, newly-appointed
executive director of the Michi-
gan Council of State College
Presidents, says the council's first
meeting is scheduled for Sept. 20,
but he is doubtful that the uni-
fied budget program will even be
The council conducted a trial
run of the program last year, but
according to former director Ira
Polley, it never reached anything
near completion.
The schools did submit budget
figures to the council, but there
was never any unified presentation
to the legislature.
Polley said part of the problem
was that the different schools
had various ways of perceiving
and interpreting the guidelines
for setting up budget proposals.
He also said a major source of
trouble was that there was never
any basic agreement as to the
deficiencies experienced by the
various schools. These deficiencies
include such areas as teacher
shortages, lack of libraries and
equipment facilities, and lack of
adequate faculty salaries.
Polley said he did submit a re-
port of recommendations in this
area last year, but there were
never any definite decisions
Polley termed the Aproject a
most ambitious .and worthwhile
venture, but was doubtful of any
reach achievement of its goals in
the near future.
The underlying purpose of the
project was to help eliminate the
haggling between schools which
accompanies the institutions' ap-
propriations requests each year.
Proponents of the program feel
it would enable the schools to
present a unified front to the
state government and thus, per-
haps increase the probability of
legislature co-operation in grant-
ing appropriations.
The idea of a co-operative
movement was approved in prin-
ciple by the college presidents
several years ago. However, many
problems were foreseen at that
The striking difference between
the schools was a subject of con-
cern. The three giant universi-
ties, Michigan, Michigan State.
and Wayne State were placed
side by side with several former
teachers' colleges that had just
attained the status of University
as well as several small colleges.
This factor would certainly af-
fect joint budgeting.

Late World News
by 'he Associated Press
WASHINGTON (A')-The government reported record levels
again yesterday for two key economic indicators-persons income
and the production of American industry.
Industrial production climbed during August to 158.3 per cent
of the 1957-59 average, the eleventh straight month of advance,
while personal income registered its largest monthly gain of the
year, due in large part to the new medicare program.
The Commerce Department reported a $5-billion increase in
personal income during August to a seasonally adjusted level of
$585 billion. Both figures are on an annual basis.
The advance in wages and salaries of $3.1 billion during the
month was in line, the department said, with the increases in
recent months.
A NEW BY-LAW concerning social events at individual
fraternity houses was passed Thursday by the Fraternity Presi-

for all houses to notify the IFC executive committee at least 15
days prior to all open social events, such as lawn dances.
The committee will also decide at which events security police
are needed. The houses must hire the number of police suggested
by the committee before the event can be held. Recent complaints
concerning noise and traffic tie-ups have made this action

Regents Vote
Approval of
Support President's
Stand on Releasing
Membership Lists
At their monthly meeting yes-
terday, the Regents formally ap-
proved a statement by President
Harlan Hatcher which defended
the University's stand on releas-
ing the membership lists of three
student organizations to the House
Un-American Activities Commit-
President Hatcher's statement
explained that the groups whose
membership lists were submitted
are basically seeking wide publi-
city. "They have the right towork
through constitutional means to
change the laws," he continued,
"but they cannot acceptrsome
parts of the law and not others."
After the meeting, Regent Irene
Murphy met with Stanley Nadel,
'66, head of the Committee to Aid
the Vietnamese, who recently ap-
peared before the HUAC hear-
ings in Washington, and represen-
tatives from VOICE Political Par-
ty, one of the organizations whose
membership lists were submitted
to HUAC. They discussed griev-
ances against the University's

Mrs. Murphy explained that she

about the subpoena, the Universi-

Although Mrs. Murphy did not
say whether she approved of the
University's release of the mem-
bership lists, she did say that "an
individual should be made aware
of all the alternatives open to
him so that he can adequately
protect himself."

remnant of McCarthyism," Mrs.
Murphy said, "The Democratic

Following the meeting, VOICE
representatives issued a response
to President Hatcher's statement.
"We are public when we choose
to make ourselves public, but not
when we are forced to do it.
Mrs. Murphy invited the VOICE
representatives to continue dis-
cussion at an informal Regents'
breakfast, to be held next month.
In other action at yesterday's
meeting, the Regents approved
three new building projects.
One is the proposed Upjohn
Center for Clinical Pharmacology
to be built near the University
Hospital pending approval of a
federal grant, to be decided in
December. The two-story building
is estimated to cost 1.8 million.
Highway Safety
The second building is the High-
way Safety Research Institute, a
four-story structure with labs and
offices, to be built on North
Campus with funds supplied by
auto companies.
The third building will be a
huge 400-unit complex called
Northwood Apartments. It will
house married students on North
Campus and should be ready for
occupancy by the fall of 1968.
The Regents regretfully accepted
the resignations of two highly
placed University faculty mem-
bers: Prof. Kenneth Davis, chair-

man of the department of for-
estry, and John A. Flower asso-
-ciate Dean of the School of Mu-
sic. Davis accepted a professor-
ship at Yale, and Flower accepted
a position as Dean of the College
of Fine And Professional Arts at
Kent State University.

The initial legislation was de-
signed to serve only for a one week
interim period.
In addition by rescinding the
interim legislation, Council took
the pressure of responsibility for
