Late World News
By The Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS-The foreign ministers of Britain and
the Soviet Union will meet today and are expected to explore
possibilities for convening the 1954 Geneva Conference on Indo-
china. Their two nations are co-chairmen of the conference that
ended the French Indochina war in 1954 and are responsible
for keeping the peace in the area which includes Viet Nam.
The meeting of British Foreign Secretary George Brown
and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko at the Soviet
4 U.N. mission in New York was announced last night by a British
spokesman. Brown told a Labor party convention in Brighton,
England, on Thursday that he would urge Gromyko to join him
in reconvening the Geneva Conference.
Before seeing Gromyko at 10:30 a.m., Brown is to meet with
Canadian Foreign Secretary Paul Martin, whose country serves
with India and Poland on the International Control Commission
for Indochina.
The Soviet Union has resisted past urgings by Britain to
reconvene the conference. But, North Viet Nam has not ruled out
the Geneva Conference as a possible vehicle for peace in Viet
Nam and the United States has said that it, too, would be willing
to negotiate within the framework of the conference.
In related events yesterday, the Soviet Union reacted cooly
to a proposal by President Johnson for a mutual reduction of
troops in Europe, and Indonesian Foreign Minister Adam Malik
said his country has been asked by nations on both sides of the
Viet Nam war to help bring an end to the conflict.
THE WILDCAT STRIKE of some- 200 local Michigan Bell
employes shows little sign of immediate settlement. Members of
Ann Arbor Local 4011 of the Communications Workers of America,
remain on strike in protest of a recent contract agreement with
Michigan Bell and the negotiating committee of the CWA.
N. J. Prakken, manager of the local Michigan Bell office,
said local phone service will proceed as usual and long-distance
calls will be placed by supervisory personnel.
Frederick Chase, Jr., president of Local 4011, said he is
"urging member back to work because this is an unauthorized
wildcat strike, but the officers won't work under the present
contract." He said that over 200 men were present at a Local
meeting held yesterday and further meetings are planned, but
that it is impossible to estimate the length of the strike.
THE SACUA SUBCOMMITTEE on student relations will meet
Oct. 13 to discuss the interrelations between the Ann Arbor
police and the University community, and methods for handling
future student conduct such as that oflast week's sit-in.
The subcommittee has -also invited four students to par-
ticipate in their meetings throughout the remainder of the year.
Two of the students will be selected from Student Government
Council and two from Graduate Student Council.

COLORADO UNIVERSITY is undertaking an 18-month study

THE FACULTY COMMITTEE which is investigating the
University's release of three student organizations' membership
lists to the House Committee on Un-American Activities will
probably have completed its report within two weeks, a com-
mittee member revealed yesterday. The group has been working
on the report since early September.
THE FACULTY SENATE of the University of Pennsylvania
did not vote last Friday on the controversial proposal for an ad-
visory ad hoc committee to examine university research projects.
The committee would consist of eight faculty members who would
review all research projects where there was a question as to
whether the results would be "freely available and freely pub-
lishable." The committee would then recommend acceptance or
rejection of the project to the administration. This would be the
final decision.
In practice this criteria would mean denial or approval to

many Department of Defense contracts which require that re-

jects which triggered protest last fall.

The program, now in its second
year, is more than an opportunity
for student exchange. According
to Russel Brown, director of the
program and vice- president of
Tuskegee Institute, "It is set up
on a broad base which will permit
almost any kind of exchange. We
are enchanging students, faculty,
and cultural organizations as well
as ideas in research and student
and faculty recruitment."
"Mutual knrichment"
Initiated in 1963 by University
President Harlan Hatcher and
Tuskegee President Luther Foster
as a program of "mutual enrich-
ment," each school offers equal
benefits. Students and professors
are exposed to different social
and educational environments.
"Large universities can do many
things for the Negro college, while
in turn the Negro can enlighten
the large university on the aca-
demic and personal needs of stu-
dents who have been the victims
of poor elementary and high
school education," says Prof. Ar-
nold Kaufman of the philosophy
department, who participated in
the program,
. Tuskegee Institute, in Tuskegee'

co-educational institution with a
predominately Negro enrollment
of 2600 students. In 1965 twelve

GOV. GEORGE ROMNEY, at a press conference at the Union yesterday, endorsed Marvin Esch for congressional representative of
this district. Romney attacked incumbent Weston Vivian for his voting on issues endorsed by the AFL-CIO and the Americans for
Democratic Action, and the 93 per cent voting record supporting President Johnson's spending requests. He said Vivian is "either a
rubber stamp or subject to some commitments." Vivian was not available for comment.

1 8-Year-Old
Vote Gains
New Support
Claim 'If He's Old
Enough To Vote He's
Old Enough to Fight'
A new political group to gain
support for the 18-year-old vote
proposal on the Michigan ballot
in November was announced yes-
terday. The group is named the
Michigan Citizens Committee for
the Vote at 18.
"If he's old enough to fight, he's
old enough to vote," the group's
chairman, C. Allen Harlan told a
Detroit press conference.
Harlan, a trustee of Michigan
State University called upon all
Michigan voters to support the
proposal on the Nov. 8 ballot.
"Our 18-year-olds have partici-
pated in every war, but they have
never had the privilege of voting
for the government that decided
policy," he said.
The main body of the group is
made up of educators and stu-
dents. James M. Graham, presi-
dent of Michigan State Univer-
sity's student government, will act
as chairman of the coordinating
committee. It will be the respon-
sibility of this sub-group to inte-
grate the activities of the state
schools involved.
Under the auspices of the Na-
tional Student Association, the
Michigan C i t i z e n s Committee
hopes to capitalize on student in-
volvement and arouse adult in-
terest by bringing nationally
known speakers into the state, by
sending student speakers to local
organizations, and by employing
student and alumni publications.
Robert Smith, member of the
University Student Government
Council, is currently overseeing
the movement's activities in the
Ann Arbor region. The University
has already pledged $1000 to the
committee, more than half of
which will be used in state-wide
campaigns. Other schools such as
W a y n e State University and
Northern Michigan University are
expected to make similar contri-
A statement from Graham, co-
ordinating chairman, indicated
the movement's reliance on the
interest of students:
"They have a real stake in gov-
ernment today. They always have
been intensely interested in the
issues of education, poverty and
civil rights. Now there are the
added issues of the war in Viet-
nam and the draft. Their involve-
ment combined with the effects
of mass communication has made
the age of 21 obsolete as a mini-
mum age for voting."
Lip Service
He went on to say:
"This is basically an issue of
and for youth . . . . We're just
getting lip service from the poli-
ticians. So that leaves the real
campaigning up to us.

Prevent Campus Calamities

The University's decision to
build a house for the Nu Sigma
Nu Fraternity, announced in Sep-
tember, came after the fraternity
failed to raise sufficient funds
for the building from alumni.
After a 1959 fund drive for a
new Nu Sigma Nu house failed a
prominent alumnus, Giffod Up-
john, president of Upjohn, Inc.,
a major pharmaceutical company,
suggested that the fraternity use
the University as a tax shield. He
explained that if the house were
owned by the university, contri-
butions to the building fund
scort Service
The Sesquicentennial central
committee conceived the idea of
an escort service, and the UAC
will administer it.
Blackney stated that the escorts
will receive no pay.
Five major conferences during
the Sesquicentennial, such as the
Voices of Civilization conference

would be tax deductible as edu-'
cational contributions.
Upjohn said that if the frater-
nity could persuade the university
to build the house he would con-
tribute a substantial amount to
the building of their new house.
The fraternity successfully re-
gotiated the agreement with the
university on the matter early
this year.
The University will build the
house with money from a special
building fund.
When the fraternity raises 50
per cent of the money needed to
build the house the university
will break ground for .the struc-
ture. The University will loan
Nu Sigma Nu the remaining mo-
ney provided that it can be paid
back under a 15 year mortgage.
The building will be located at

fraternity for a five year period.

If the house was built by the
fraternity they would be con-

In answer to charges that the
University is allowing itself to be
used as a tax dodge by the fra-
ternity, Feldkamp says that of
"it is a way build fraternities
from non-University funds."
He also noted that the frater-
nity's plans coincided with the
University's desire to locate stu-
dent housing near their respective
campuses. The new medical fra-
ternity building is located near
the medical center.
Feldkamp says the f u t u r e
moves by the housing office along
this line would be made only if
they are consistent with Univer-
sity planning.
He adds that the University will
not take similar moves to help
fraternities relocate themselves in
random areas round Ann Arbor.

It is 11:30 P.M. Night and si-

All is calm. Suddenly, with an
agonized moan, a tangle of copper
