WASHINGTON (/P) -President
Lyndon B. Johnson disclosed yes-
terday he is considering expanding
the draft and calling up military
reservists to help fight the step-
ped-up war inVe am.
Johnson told a news conference
that no decisions have been reach-
ed, but he said "the government
is always considering every possi-
bility and every eventuality."
Other Announcements .
Covering a wide range of topics,
the President also made the f ol-
lowing announcements:
-The administration is encour-
aged because Russia has agreed to
a month-old American proposal
for resumption of disarmament
talks at a 17-nation conference in
Geneva, and the two nations will
work toward getting a specific

tious and hopeful" about the situ-
ation in the Dominican Republic;

former World Bank president as-
signed to check the possibilities
for U.S. economW gid in Southeast
-He may propose amore civil
rights legislation to take some as
yet unannounced form.;
-He denied rumors that Dean
Rusk may be replaced as secre-
tary of state, and
-He sees no point in arguing~
with writers who attempt to de-
scribe the circumstances of his ac-
t anc nof thet n1960 vice-presiden-
new book by Arthur Schlesinger).
Heavier Involvement?
In speaking of possible heavier
involvement of U.S. forces in the
fighting in Viet Nam, Johnson said
increased aggression may require
an increased American response on
the ground.
Johnson said U.S. forces will de-
fend their own bases and "they
will be available for more active
combat," whenever U.S. field com-
manders decide it necessary.
"It is quite possible that new
and serious decisions will be nec-
essary in the near future," John-
son said.
"We'd like to improve relations
any way we can."

ed to be a deliberately casual en-

USNSA May Probe
Student Cost StatuMs
Student economic welfare-where college students' dollars go,
and why so fast-may become the main issue of the next United
States National Student Association congress, said Barry Bluestone,
'66, who is trying to have the issue placed there. .
"There is a good chance that the USNSA Liberal Study Group
will push the area of student economic welfare as part of a reform
movement," Bluestone said yesterday.
Bluestone, who is both a member of the USNSA Liberal Study
Group and president of the University of Michigan Student Employees'
Union, added that he has contacted other members of the Liberal
Study Group about the idea and~ -

"Social science methodology,
the quantifications of human
aspirations, has always been
suspect to me, but Boulding's
book has convinced me that it
can be a good thing. And this
has always been a trial for me
and still, I want to ask: Who's
running those surveys and what
do they have in mind for me?"
These weei theoen com-a
Dan Burke, as he presented
Professor Boulding's "The
Meaning of the 20th Century:
The Great Transition," the
second Office of Religious Af-
fairs Noon Book Discussion.
Burke told over 100 people at
the Union, "This is a fine yet
very deceptive book. First, it is
short and written in a decep-
tively simple §tyle, But there
is a reservoir of profunditity
behind this simple presentation.
Second, it gathers diffuse
theories about cultural change
into huge generalizations that
look deceptive, but are brilliant
upon reflection, like sparks
from flint.
Transition of Society
"'The compression of thought
breaks loose from the grandiose
and general and is immediately
illuminating. This book in its
analysis of contemporary so-
ciety as the second great tran-
sition of human society, co-
ordinates, compliments and ful-
fills the traditional Judeo-
Christian Weltanschaung as I
see it.
"The first, Boulding suggests,
was from hunting to agricul-
ture, or pre-civilization to civili-
zation. While the second, post-
civilization if you will, is the
transition from agricultural so-
ciety to technological society."
Informed by the tone of Harvey
Cox's "Secular City," Burke
continued, "Boulding means by
this transition, not just a
change in the way things are
made or the way life runs, but
the way people think.
"Meaning is to be found in
the new norms, change and
openness, as opposed to "bal-
ance" or the "equilibrium" of
the 19th century thinkers. With
this mode of thought, Boulding
lifts the lid on ennui and exis-
tential despair."

He explained that yesterday's
meeting was devoted largely to
discussion of general policies and
guidelines. He said that problems
have been encountered because
different state schools use differ-
ent accounting systems, and a
standard will have to be~ worked
out before the proposed unified
budget can take form.
He added that more discussion
with the State Board of Educa-
tion, the Legislature and the state
budget office will probably be
needed before plans for the uni-
fied budget can be finalized.

from society as conceived as
static to society thought of in
terms of change and he de-
lineated its ramifications for
man. He spoke of the explosion
of Western culture and with
that "the tremendous increase
in knowledge and communica-
tion, the real source of the dy-
namic, open society of the 20th
Burke added, "the key to
understanding this transition,
what it means, what the mean-
ing of the 20th century is, is
the resultant "objectivity" of
knowledge, the wide use of the
methodology of science. Bould-
ing says that this plurality of
truth makes life richer and re-
duces the possibilities of con-
flict because it removes knowl-
edge from the private sphere
into the public arena where I
and my "opponent" can argue,
but without frustration and
anxiety because truth is "prov-
ed" by events. Where truth was
closed before, now it can be
verified and thus no one man

or nation can claim the savior
role for all humanity."
Traps for Change
Burke listed the four "traps"
for change and the good it can
bring as "the war trap, the
population trap, the entropy
trap, and the boredom trap.
Additional impediments could
be the refusal to accept change
or grudging acceptance of It."
The conclusion was enlivened
by a sharp question or charge
that Prof. Boulding was "ma-
terialistic" as opposed to "tran-
scendental," and a "cold be-
ing." Burke refuted this by
saying, "I am a material being
andc have material problems.
Boulding talks in material
terms and offers corresponding
solutions, the realities of this
world. As to coldness, his book
is replete with references to the
poets, mystics and statements
such as "agape'is the real solu-
tion, the most anti-entropic of
all human relationships; it does

Proponents of the plan believe
that officials of the ten schools
can combine forces to fight for
their one proposal, eliminating
the inter-instiutional bickering
that has often handicapped the
state schools from getting desired
However, some educators, in-
cluding a number of University
administrators, have said that the
large differences between various
state schools will handicap fair
and realistic budget requests.
There have also been objec-
tions raised about the role of the
State Board of Education, which
would participate quite fully In
the budget planning.
Nevertheless, University officials
are cooperating with the presi-
dents' council in its work on the
1966-67 proposal and generally
express cautious optimism about
prospects for the future.

The University's Birth Defect
Clinical Study Center, founded in
1962, is working to improve the
lot of that one child in 17 who is
born with a birth defect. .
The center's main interest is
improvement of care, diagnosis
and treatment of children with
birth defects, explained Dr. Don-
ita R. Sullivan of the medical

the meantime onto something
which would result in preventive
measures against these birth de-
fects," she added, "this would be
an extra benefit."
Research at the center is clin-
ical in nature, emphasizing the
teaching and improvement of
medical techniques already in ex-
istence, Dr. Sullivan explained.
This is not the same as basic re-
search, which is mainly concerned
with the fundamental causes of a

Responsibilities at the center
have doubled in the three years
that it has been operating, Dr.
Sullivan noted. The main reason,
she said, was the opportunity for
more individual care.
The center, unlike a private
family physican, can provide con-
certed, individualized attention to
each child, Dr. Sullivan said.
But in anotesrense, the cen-
ter could offer things that a f am-
ily physician can not have access
to. It can provide required tech-
niques and facilities that are not
easily handled by the family phy-
sician, Dr. Sullivan said.
Although it has been estimated
that there are some 600 to 800
different classifications of birth
defects-and probably that is an
underestimate, noted Dr. Sullivan
-the center does not handle all
A great many types of birth de-
fects are treated outside the cen-
ter yet within the University Hos-
pital, Dr. Sullivan explained. One
example of this would be con-
genital heart disease.
But the center does treat most
cases of children with defects in
their backs or spines, children
with enlarged heads due to dia-
late brain cavities and cidren
