Asks Attack on Viet Nam Sites Retirement




publican Leader Gerald R. Ford
said yesterday the United States
should bomb the Russian-built
missile sites in North Viet Nam.
"Sites designed for firing sur-
face-to-air missiles should be
knocked out by United States air
superiority before the enemy uses
the weapons against the side of
freedom." the Michigan congress-
man told a news conference.

Ford brushed aside suggestions
that the antiaircraft bases may be
defensive in nature - to protect
the North Viet Nam capital of
Hanoi and its port, Haiphong.
"The sites," he said, "are a
threat to the lives of American
military personnel in Southeast
Asia." Besides, Ford said, "the
bases aren't being put there solely
for defensive purposes."

Regents To

CHARLES ORLEBEKE (center) said last night that Gov. George Romney (left) definitely will not
veto any portion of the University's general funds budget appropriation, and University President Har-

budget. Orlebecke said, however, that Romney probably will not sign the higher education bill of which
the University budget is a part, for another ten days - a factor which could stop the Regents from

McNamara To
Alter Criteria
For Promotion
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of Defense Robert S. McNamara
is preparing to shake up the old,
established officer promotion sys-
tem in order to reward military
talent ovei' seniority, it was dis-
closed yesterday.
The move may cause a clash
between McNamara and the pro-
fessional officer corps, particular-
ly those who gained the i high
ranks by a slow climb up the lad-
der of age and length of service.
In his four and a half years as
Pentagon chief, McNamara has
enforced a number of major
changes that have roused service
objections, chiefly involving tight-
ening and centralizing control over
the military.
The Associated Press learned
that McNamara sent the secretar-
ies of the Army, Navy and Air
Force a memorandum on June 18
expressing his "increasing con-
cern" over policies and procedures
for picking generals and admir-
als "and the related problem of
the advancement of highly quali-
fied officer personnel to the sen-
ior grades."
McNamara told his subordinate
service secretaries that "consid-
erably more attention must be giv-
en" to the "timely advancement
of the best qualified officers" to
senior rank and selection of the
top officers for the highest respon-
He added: "I am also concern-
ed that age in grade and seniority
criteria are having a deleterious
impact on the caliber of our gen-
eral and flag officers and on the
morale and retention of promising
younger officers who should pro-
vide our professional leadership
base of the coming decade."
The memorandum probably cry-
stallized from McNamara's long-
;xpressed view that not enough
recognition is given to merit in
promotions and that men selected

"We would like to see a Univer-k
sity where tuitions might not
exist, but at the same time we
fully realize and acknowledge that]
there may exist a need for a tui-
tion raise at this time. If so it is
at least in one sense justified.1
However, this raise must be made
only in a context of a general pol-
icy which also attempts to lowerj
the overall costs to U. of M.
students. Alternatives to the highj
cost of the total educational pack-
age must be sought and immedi-
ately put into action. There hasj
been little evidence that alterna-
tives have been suggested or act-
ed upon." .
UMSEU recommended a number
of possible alternatives to be ex-
plored by University officials on'
low cost housing.
"Rent in Ann Arbor has risen
to the point of ridiculousness. Ma-
jor programs are necessary to off-
set the high cost of rent and to
bring rents down to a sane and
moral level. To do this the Uni-
versity must begin building low
rent non-supervised apartment-
type student community housing,"
the statement said.
"To finance this housing the
University should use a part of
the large mutual fund, now in ex-
cess of $55 million and utilize
federal housing grants under the
Title Three program. The Univer-
sity should divest-itself of some of
its stocks and bonds, take this
money, add federal grants, and in-
vest it in University services such
as housing, at the same profit as
it makes on the mutual fund,
"Thus instead of the 21 per cent
debt service which students now
pay for University housing, which
is comparable to what is known
as 'profit' for capital investment
and is used for securing mortgages
on new housing, the University
would charge about 7 per' cent to
students for the use of 'mortgage'
money and invest their own

action on all the proposals out-

Orlebeke Announces
Governor Won't Sign
Budget Bill This Week
The entire $51.2 million Uni-
rersity general funds budget ap-
ropriation is "absolutely safe"
rom being vetoed by the Gover-
or, Charles Orlebeke, Gov. Rom-
ey's special assistant for educa-
;ion, said last night.
However, he added, "the Gov-
rnor definitely will not sign the
higher education appropriations
Aill this week"-a fact which
ould complicate plans, announced
yesterday, to hold a special Re-
ents meeting Friday for consider
tion of the University general
funds budget.
The Regents cannot approve the
general funds budget without a
final figure for the state's appro-
priation, which provides by far
the largest share of revenues sup-
porting this portion of the Uni-
versity's expenditures.
University President Harlan
Hatcher indicated yesterday after-
noon that the Regents meeting
had been called on the assump-
tion that the Governor would sign
the bill by Friday. He said he had
had no official confirmation that
this would be done, but that in-
formal contacts with Lansing of-
ficials made it a safe working as-
sumption. He added that he had
tried to reach the Governor's of-
fice yesterday without success.
When the Regents do act on
the budget, they will have to
adjust planned expenditures to
conform with the $51.2 million ap-
propriation, which, assuming it is
approved, will leave the University
with $4.7 million less from the
state than originally hoped for.
High administration sources
have indicated that about $1.6
million of this deficit will probably
be made up by a tuition increase
of approximately $50 for Michigan
residents and $100 for out-of-state
students. The Regents would then
have to cut back expenditures by
only $3.1 million.
In Limbo
The 1965-66 general funds bud-
get, which finances the basic
costs of instruction, would have
gone into effect July 1 if the
state had determined an appro-
priations figure in time for the
Regents to act by that date. Since
July 1 this section of the total
University budget has been in
limbo; but, because the first July
payday for University employees
has not yet arrived, this has not
created serious problems to date.
Explaining the expected delay
in Romney's consideration of the
higher education bill, Orlebeke
said that the Governor has not
even received an official copy of
the measure from the printing
office. (However, another Lansing
source, contacted two days ago,
had been under the impression
that Romney had the bill on his
desk at that time.)
Orlebeke added that, once the
Governor receives the bill, he will
have 14 days to act on it.
Ten Days
"I would guess that he (Rom-
ney) will sign it in about ten
days," he said.
The $51.2 million University ap-
prbpriation comprises two "line
items" in the higher education
bill. One of these includes the
$50.35 budget recommended by
Romney in February plus about
$285,000 for expansion of the
University's Flint College branch
inthe fail. The other is a $900,000
addition forfaculty salary in-
creases inserted by the Legislature.
While theoretically the Gov-
ernor could veto either or bot
