'U' Budget May Be Slashed,

The Legislature produced twc
surprises yesterday, as rumors cir.
culated that the House Ways and
Means Committee may slash the
University's general funds budget
by $1.1 million but the Senate
Appropriations Committee sent
the school aid bill to the flooi
with a controversial $71 millior
increase intact.
"The Ways and Means Com-
mittee is seriously considering
cutting the higher education ap-
propriations bill by $4.9 million-
a reduction that would give the
University the $50 million appro-
priation recommended by the gov-
ernor in February," a reliable
Lansing source reported yesterday.
The committee's chairman, Rep.
Einar Earlandsen (D-Escanaba)
refused to confirm the rumor.
No Time
"We have not yet had time to
discuss the bills in detail," he said.
"I am in no position to speculate
on what may be done in the next
two days."

A special convocation at which
both astronauts will be honored

It has not yet been determined

lege's department of aeronautical
engineering from which McDivitt
received his bachelor's degree and
White his master's degree, both
in 1959.

Approves Bill
Labor subcommittee approved yes-
terday the administration's bill to
repeal a section of the Taft-Hart-
ley law which permits states to
ban union shop agreements.
The 6-3 vote after a bare one
hour's discussion marked an easy
first step for a bill that is ex-
pectgd to give President Lyndon B.
Johnson one of his toughest con-

Earlandsen added the commit-
tee will begin serious work on the
bill tomorrow afternoon, but prob-
ably will take no action until
Friday, the deadline for sending
bills to the floor.
The committee is considering a
$184.3 million higher education
appropriations bill passed by the
Senate May 18; the bill includes
$51.2 million for the University-
$1.1 million above Gov. George
Romney's recommendation, but
still $4.6 million short of the
amount requested by the Regents.
University President Harlan
Hatcher sharply criticized Rom-
ney's proposal in February, say-
ing that an appropriation of only
$50 million could "have serious
consequences" for the University.
Total Budget
The total budget embodied in
bills now in the Legislature is
substantially higher than expect-
ed, and, according to Sen. Gilbert
Bursley (R-Ann Arbor), about $25
million will have to be slashed
from the bills before passage. Last
week, Romney threatened to veto
bills in excess of his recommen-
dations-a move that many feel
has put more pressure on the
Legislature for spending cutbacks.
Many observers had anticipated
that the Senate Appropriations
Committee would reduce the
school aid measure, increased in
the House by almost $40 million
over the governor's recommenda-
The issue of cutting back school
aid had split Senate Democrats,
with some wanting to reduce the
bill by at least $10 million and,
others holding out for the full
$71 million appropriation.
Senate Majority Leader Ray-'
mond Dzendzel (D-Detroit) has
expressed confidence in being able
to muster enough votes to pass the
bill as it stands.
Some other senators, however
are not as sure about the bill's
future. Bursley said it may still
be slashed on the Senate floor
and then adjusted in a Senate-
House conference committee; or if

Gains Force,
Generals To Mediate
Saigon Political Split
SAIGON (P)-Premier Phan Huy
Quat accused his chief of state
yesterday of balking attempts to
settle the political crisis in South
Viet Nam.
He said his government was un-
able to find a solution and called
in a number of top army generals
to mediate.
Quat's government, in office
only four months, appears in dan-
ger of collapse. This could bring
in another military junta to rule
the turbulent country.
Quat and chief of state Phan
Khac Suu have been locked for
three weeks in a dispute over cab-
inet changes. Suu has refused to
approve Quat's recommendations.
Taking advantage of the situa-
tion, the Roman Catholics stag-
ed a number of anti-government
deminstrations. They charge Quat,
a Buddhist, with discriminating
against Catholics. He denies this.
Suu is a member of the Cao Dai
Sect, which also has been crying
for Quat's removal.
"Up to this point," Quat told
a news conference, "the good will
of the government has been un-
able to keep the problem from de-
generating into a critical situa-
tion. This situation has harmed
the war against the Communists,
which should have top priority.
Quat announced he had asked
all the general officers in the
country to serve on a new media-
tion board and they agreed.
Quiet Groups
Presumably they will attempt to
settle the Quat-Suu dispute and
try to quiet the opposition of re-
ligious groups.
The premier said he was assur-
ed the generals supported a strong
civilian government, and that this
would not mean a return to mili-
tary rule.
Meanwhile, Quat's national po-
lice chief, Lt. Col. Pham Van
Lieu, charged that current anti-
government leaders are tied close-
ly with the Viet Cong, although
he did not include the Catholics
in this category.
Attempted Coup
Lieu said that leaders of the at-
tempted coup May 20 were either
Communists or former Commu-
He said the top coup leader,
Col. Pham Ngo Thao who still is
at large, once headed Viet Cong
intelligence. Thao did head intel-
ligence under Ho Chi Minh, the
president of North Viet Nam, in
the war against the French.
After the war, Thao declared
himself an anti-Communist and
joined the government of the late
President Ngo Dinh Diem.
Lieu said that the government
arrested 41 persons in connection
with the May coup attempt, in-
luding 17 military men, but the
leading plotters were still at large.
Catholics have charged that
most of those arrested were Cath-
As Quat spoke, a Catholic mob
was reported to have burned a
government car in the suburbs.

Southeast Asia Clings
To A Glorious History
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of two articles on Southeast Asia.
Tie second will appear tomorrow,
Southeast Asia is the land of Viet Nam, Cambodia, Indonesia,
Thailand, Burma, Malaya and Laos. These countries share some
problems together, but inherit-and spawn-others which are uniquely
their own.
According to L. A. Peter Gosling, director of the Center for South
and Southeast Asian Studies and professor of geography, "memories
of a golden age" in some countries in Southeast Asia "could pose

problems today." History of "past
and kingdoms in Viet Nam, Cam-
bodia, Indonesia, Thailand and
Burma are responsible for "a con-
siderable amount of pride." This
could make the people "more dif-
ficult for Americans to deal with,"
in their aid-educational programs.
The solution to this problem
lies in sending well-rounded,
knowledgeable Americans into the
field, according to Prof. John E.
Bardach of the natural resources,
school. Bardach spent nearly two
years in Cambodia updating the
fishery system.
Cambodian technology is still in
a critically low state, and this
cannot be erased in one swoop of
American equipment and money,
he said.
Cambodia's history of French
domination-notably the Jesuit
missionaries and Napoleon III -
has left the indelible stamp of
European culture on the ruling
"Their salaries are very low and
they all aspire to a Western stan-
dard of living which is more ex-
pensive in Cambodia than in the
West," Bardach said. "This is why
bribes work so well."
Although the cultures and heri-
tages of the Southeast Asian
countries are varied, their dif-
ferences are not that significant,
Bardach said. He compared the
situation to the Europe of the
Middle Ages with its hundreds of
tiny kingdoms and dukedoms.
Each one claimed to be a separate
entity, he said, but there were
many inter-marriages and much
travelling. The cultural differences
soon disappeared. This same thing

The position of the woman is

Mission Oriented
He explained that research at
Willow Run is almost always
oriented toward solving a specific
problem or "mission."
GeorgraPhical location is a per-
tinent factor regarding Willow
Run as an entity, Wilson said, but
it is fast decreasing in influence.
Several of the laboratories at Wil-
low Run now have facilities on

structure will allow IST to ad-

single block with specific prob-

Willow Run Laboratories are
financed by approximately 25 per
cent of the money received from
the federal government for re-
search at the University.
The University receives over
$42 million for research from

that has been climbing steadily
for the past fifteen years.
Project Michigan
The major project conducted
there is Project Michigan. This
