NEWS WIRE
THE STANFORD CHAPTER of Sigma Chi disclosed yester-
day it has broken with its national fraternity because of a two-
year dispute over, racial discrimination, the Associated Press
reported.
A unanimous decision to withdraw was announced at a din-
ner meeting of chapter alumni in Los Angeles by chapter presi-
dent Brock Gowdy, a political science major from Glencoe, Ill.
"We have sought to resolve the discrimination question ever
since we were suspended by the national in April, 1965," Gowdy
said. "We now realize this isn't possible."
The chapter was suspended for one year after extending
bids to several Negro students. It was reinstated on strict proba-
tion this year after the national was told that the one Negro
student who had accepted a bid was no longer eligible for mem-
bership.
In recent years, Sigma Chi chapters at Brown, Columbia,
Cornell, and Lafayette have withdrawn from the national in
disputes over racial policies.
PROF. RICHARD SOLOMON of the University told the
McGill University Conference on World Affairs yesterday that
China has serious internal troubles related to the necessity of
changing the familiar pattern of family loyalties to state and
party affiilations. The leaders had to utilize all instruments at
their command, including the Red Guards movement, to In-
stitute the change, he asserted.
"This is understandably a very great undertaking since
loyalty to the family has been a concept of Chinese thought for
thousands of years," he said.

THE MICHIGAN COURT OF APPEALS recently ruled that
q the University can be sued for damages.
The court reversed a summary dismissal of plaintiff Joyce
Branum's damage suit against the Board of Regents. Miss$
Branum was struck by a University-owned vehicle in 1963. Her
husband sued for medical costs and the loss of her companion-
ship.
The University asked dismissal of the suit contending that as
a governing body, the Board of Regents is immune from suits.
"The Supreme Court of the State of Michigan has ruled that
the judicial doctrine of governmental immunity no longer exists
in Michigan," the Appeals court said. "The University of Michi-
gan is an independent branch of the government of the state,
but it is not island . . . there is no reason to allow the Regents
to use their independence to thwart the clearly established public
ti policy of the people of Michigan.
The case was sent back to the Court of Claims for action on
its merits.
RUSSELL H. FIFIELD and Robert E. Ward, professors of
political science, were among 19 persons named by President
Johnson to his new advisory panel on East Asian and Pacific
Affairs.

NEW TRAINIP

Peace Corps Adj

By LISSA MATROSS
Called by some, "the last re-
maining outpost of the New Fron-
tier," the Peace Corps, like all
New Frontier programs, has been
changing as it meets up with un-
expected problems.
The University has always had
a close relationship with the corps.
It was on the steps of the Union

structure when they joined the
corps.
Yet, the training consisted many
lectures given by scholarly acade-
micians who proved out of touch
with the realities of life in foreign
countries, and had diffculty un-
derstanding the situations young
Americans in the corps would be
in.
But training and recruitment
are slowly changing. Recruiting

One of the biggest problems the was assistant secretary of State
corps faces is in the area of com- for Latin American affairs for a

"Appeals now go from Joint Ju-

with this exception he has estab-

acquired the new powers.

Schaaf further commenting on
the project said, "The progress of
the war in Viet Nam seems to be
retarding the efforts of the con-
struction projects which the U.N.
coordinators have planned. The
largest projects in Viet Nam are
in fighting zones, so the Mekong
project is going more slowly
there."
Schaaf cited the Plaine des
Joncs, a marshland in Cambodia
and Vietnam,'as an example of
this retardation. He pointed out
that the engineers want to drain
and reclaim the land, but they
can't get in because it is a Viet
Cong stronghold. There have been
few terrorist attacks on project
workers because the engineers
cannot penetrate the war zone
where the work needs to be done,"
Schaaf added.
Twenty-one Asian and European
countries are cooperating in the
project. The largest source of cap-
ital comes from the four Mekong
Delta countries themselves. These
four countries have raised one-
third of the $115,000,000 pledged
to the project. The United States

In addition to the recommenda-
tions already in Washington,
Greene is now preparing a re-
port on his visit to Ann Arbor
which will be sent to his super-
fors in the Contracts Compliance
Office in Washington, who had
requested the study.
The report will "present our
conversation and observations here
along with factual data," Greene
said.
(The Daily previously reported
that "the report ... has been sent,
along with the recommendations
made available yesterday, to the
office of the secretary of defense,
which originally requested the
study.")
Niehuss indicated yesterday that
the University is generally in
agreement with the Defense De-
partment's recommenadtions. "I
think they did a good job of list-
ing the specific goals that we
have been working toward for a
long time," he said.

Among other things, the report
urged the appointment of Negro
faculty members to University pol-
icy-making committees, creation of

porting to President Hatcher, in-
