To Sign Pact
On Oil Profit
By The Associated Press
PARIS-French and Algerian
oil companies reached an agree-
ment yesterday over the distribu-
tion of profits from Algeria's oil
The agreement gives Algeria 53
to 55 per cent on the profits and
ties France to a $200 million aid
plan extending over the next five
According to official sources, the
pact was concluded for 15 years,
is renewable, and open for revi-
sion by mutual accord in five
years. Formal signing was sched-
uled for July 29 in Algiers.
Ends Negotiations
The pact ends several months
of negotiations on the Sahara gas
and oil reserves whose develop-
ment began with mostly French
government capital several years
before Algerian independence. The
new provisions replace a 1962 ac-
cord which had set up a roughly
50-50 participation.
Negotiators of both countries
called the new pact unique in its
provisions linking the exploita-
tion of a natural resource with the
country's industrial development.
The basic provisions is a 53
per cent Algerian tax on profits
from 1965 through 1967, to be
increased to 54 per cent in 1968
and 55 per cent in 1969.
Exploits Most Oil
' Algeria's share of the firm, S.
N. Repal, which exploits most of
the oil, was increased from 40.51
per cent to 50 per cent.
For natural gas, the 50 per
cent Algerian tax on profit, was
maintained, and Algeria was giv-
en the right to .buy all the gas it
wanted at cost. A 50-50 firm was
created to export liquified meth-
Another 50-50 arrangement was
set up for future research and ex-
ploitation of 111,780 square miles
on which permits have already
been granted to French firms.

ITexas Court of Criminal Appeals.


Brown was on the bench last
year when a Dallas jury sentenced
Ruby to death for killing Lee
Harvey Oswald, the alleged assas-
sin of President John F. Kennedy.
Fromal Disqualification
.The defense wants Brown for-
ally disqualified from the case.
Brown stepped down voluntarily
June 21.
The defense lawyers, Phil Bur-
leson of Dallas and Sam Houston
Clinton of Austin, argued that
Brown is writing a book about the
Ruby case and therefore should
be formally disqualified.
Assistant District A t t o r n e y
James M. Williamson countered
that the question of Brown's dis-
qualification was "moot" since he
has removed himself from the
Need Directorate
Holland, appointed to preside
over an Oct. 18 sanity trial for
Ruby, said he would hold a "full
and complete hearing" on the dis-
qualification issue if so directed
by an appellate court.
One defense attorney said after
the court session that "we want
these facts (about the book-writ-
ing) in the record" for the court
of criminal appeals.
They were considering two pos-
sibilities after the denial:
-File a rare brief (writ of
coram nobis) with the court of
criminal appeals, seeking an order
for the hearing; or
-Go to federal court on the
lasis that Ruby's constitutional
rights were being violated unless
the hearing were held.
Six Persons
Burleson subpoenaed six per-
sons for yesterday's hearings, in,
cluding Brown and Dallas Morn-
ing News Columnist Paul Crume,
who reportedly helped with the
manuscript of the book.
Brown was present at the one-
hour session, as was District At-
torney Henry Wade, who directed
the prosecution in the Ruby mur-
der trial.
Defense lawyers sought relief in
federal court this spring when
Brown overruled several motions,
among them one for a disqualifi-
cation hearing.

New Move
Becomes a
Pass Statement,
Expect Decision Soon
Reliable sources close to the
Regents reported late last night
that they are still "deeply con-
cerned" with Roger Heyns' pos-
sible move- to the University of
California's Berkeley campus to
accept the chancellorship.
It was learned that the Re-
gents, along with the deans of
the colleges andithe faculty,nhave
been "searching for a solution"
which will make it possible for
Heyns, now vice-president for aca-
demic affairs, to stay at the Uni-
versity and fulfill what was term-
ed the "crucially important role he
The Regents "are reportedly giv-
ing the fullest consideration to
the requests of the deans" and to
the many manifestations of sup-
port which have come from the
University faculty this week.
It was also reported that they
felt the Friday morning article in
The Daily to be inaccurate inas-
much as it conveyed the impres-
sion that the Regents were doing
nothing. "This could not be far-
ther from the fact," the source
said. .
Observers had thought that the
Regents would be out of the pic-
ture following President Harlan
Hatcher's statement Thursday
night that they would take no
action, along with a statement
presented at the Regents meeting
praising Heyns' work at the Uni-
versity and expressing hopes that
he would remain.
Apparently, however, the Re-
gents are actively concerned and
are still seeking ways of persuad-
ing Heyns to stay. It was also
learned by The Daily last night
that Heyns had dinner with Re-
gent Eugene Power. Power had no
comment beyond the Regents'
public statement.
Hatcher Statement
Heyns had indicated privately
to President Hatcher Thursday
that he had no desire to have any
"patch-work administrative re-
organization" improvised to create
a new position for him, nor was he
interested in any more authority,
freedom or responsibility than he
now has as vice-president for aca-
demic affairs, the President said
at the Regents meeting yesterday.
This was the basis, President
Hatcher said, for the decision of
the Regents to take no action to
counter the offer from the Uni-
versity of California for the
Berkeley chancellorship.
Heyns, responding to a resolu-
tion passed unanimously by the
Regents praising his work at the
University and hoping he would
decide to stay, said, "I have been
very moved by the many eloquent
expressions of support for my work
here from faculty, students and
my administrative colleagues in
the schools and colleges, and these
statements will weigh heavily in
my final decision."
An announcement would be
made Monday, he said, and added,
"I have always thought of, the
decision in terms of either the
Office of Academic Affairs or
President Hatcher added, "Heyns
felt his present job was adequate
in every respect.

OK's Choice
Of Goldberg
For UN Post
put on a burst of speed yesterday
to confirm Arthur J. Goldberg as
America's new ambassador to the
United Nations.
Goldberg went before the for-
eign relations committee to de-
clare his belief in strengthening
the UN to help wipe out war and
poverty and promote human rights
and social justice.
"If I believed war, was inevit-
able I would not be before you
today," the Supreme Court Jus-
tice, former labor secretary and
union lawyer told the Senators.
Praise Choice
Committee Republicans a n d
Democrats alike praised President
Lyndon B. Johnson's choice of

son in the nation's top ambassa-
Swiftly after the committee's
40-minute hearing and unanimous
approval, the full Senate gave
voice-vote confirmation to Gold-
berg without debate.
The administration plans to ad-
minister the oath of office to
Goldberg speedily so that he can
present his credentials at the UN
Major Issues
The UN is slated to tackle some
major issues soon. Discussions on
its financial crisis are scheduled
next .month and the General As-
sembly convenes in September.

Chairman J. W. Fulbright of
Arkansas and Republicans headed
by Iowa's Bourke B. Hickenlooper
poointedly avoided grilling the
newcomer to the job on the sub-
stance of problems facing the UN.
Among these are the United

AT THE REGENTS MEETING YESTERDAY, Wilbur K. Pierpont (right), vice-president for busi-
ness and finance, explained that the University was having trouble completing its building projects
due to a labor shortage. Regent Eugene Power (left) discusses the issue with him.
Regents To Contribute Funds

The Regents agreed to partici-
pate in the inter-university con-
struction and management of a
$300 million atomic accelerator.
They also heard a report that
construction of new buildings is
being slowed down by lack of
skilled laborers at their monthly
meeting yesterday.
According to A. Geoffrey Nor-
man, vice-president for research,
the University and about 34 other





institutions will contribute a max-
imum of $100,000 each to the atom
smasher project. He said that the
acceleratod would, employ about
2000 staffmen and would have an
operating budget of $60 million
per year.
Because -the costs of the ac-
celerator are so high, there will
be only one constructed in the
country. The location of the ac-
celerator is still unknown but 43

Confers with Top Advisers

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-President Lyn-
don B. Johnson, conferring with
his top strategy advisers for the
third straight day, focused yes-
terday on possible increases in
draft calls to support the expected
buildup of United States forces
in Viet Nam.
Bill D. Moyers, White House
press secretary, said, however, "no
decision has yet been made on

any of the subjects which are
under. discussion and delibera-
tion." He added that he does not
know when any decision will be
Moyers said additional studies
are expected to be completed by
Monday or Tuesday and before
decisions are nailed down there
will be further "meetings as well
as consultations with congression-
al leaders of both parties."


Will Complete U' Towers
In August, Weaver Says
The 300 University students with leases at 'U' Towers will be
able to move in on time for the fall semester, the owner, Robert
Weaver said yesterday, despite previous reports that the building
would not be finished'on time.
Although there were setbacks due to steel workers strikes and
bad weather, all 18 floors will be ready for full occupancy by Aug. 21,
Weaver said.,
Many architectural experts at the University have disputed
Weaver's claim in the past that the building would be completed
on schedule, but Weaver explain-'
ed that they were not familiar
with his "critical path" method of
Weaver explainel that this
method uses as much prefabricat-
ed construction material as pos-
sible and the progress of the work
is worked out on computers.
The owner of the largest apart-
ment house in Ann Arbor, with a
capacity of 800 occupants, com-
mented that many people are not
familiar with the method in this
city because most of the building
projects are too small to justify
its use.
.>>,When it appeared several
months ago that the apartment
house, located at the corner of
South University and Forest Ave.,
might not be completed on time,
Weaver indicated that he would
be willing to have his men work

Moyers said the question of call-
ing up reserves to meet the man-
power needs for Viet Nam was
discussed Thursday and was not
brought up yesterday. But he in-
dicated this does not mean this
possibility's being ruled out.
After discussing the possible
need to increase draft quotas,
Moyers said, the President asked
the service chiefs for more infor-
mation and told them to make
"further intensive examination of
this question" over the weekend.
He asked that "special studies
be made over the weekend on the
additional strength that each mil-
itary service may need in, South
Viet Nam," Moyers added.
There had been talk of putting
in about 100,000 more U.S. mili-
tary men in addition to the 75,-
000 already there.
As the White House talks cen-
tered on the draft, the Pentagon
issued a routine call for 17,000
men-all for the Army-for Sep-
tember, which is only 500 over
August requests. The September
quoto compares with 17,100 for
July and 17,000 for June.
Among the subjects discussed,
Moyers sair, were additional re-
quirements for fore equipment as
indicated by evidence McNamara
brought back Wednesday from his
five-day visit in South Viet Nam.
The conference also reviewed
U.S. diplomatic and political steps
in connection with South Viet
Nam "and discussed the attitude
of the other side toward these
actions," Moyers told newsmen.
He added that the President and
his advisers reviewed economic de-
velopment plans for Southeast
Asia. Moyers said Johnson arrang-
ed for members of Congress con-
cerned with the problem to meet
next week with Eugene Black, spe-
cial presidential adviser on eco-
nomic development in Southeast
Asia and on the Asian bank.
An indication that Johnson still
hasn't reached firm decisions on
how, to deal with what Moyers
called "continuing and increasing
aggression and infiltration from
North Viet Nam" came after Sen-

states have recommended a to-?
tal of 112 sites to the Atomic En-,
ergy Commission for the project.
One Recommendation
One of the sites recommended
by the state of Michigan to the
AEC is located in Northfield
Township, which is 15 miles away
from Ann Arbor. AEC sources have;
indicated that the field' of com-
petition will be narrowed down
this week.
Rep. Weston E. Vivian (D-Ann
Arbor) also indicated recently that
the site in Northfield Township
would probably survive the first
The Atomic Energy Commis-
sion has been given the job of
selecting several potential sites
and making recommendations.
However, because of the cost of
this acceleration, the number of
spin-off industries that could
evolve from it, because of the
number of academic personnel it
will draw to the area, it is highly
desirable for any state to have.
Political Decision
Consequently, the final decision
will be a political one, although it
will be based upon recommenda-
tions from the AEC.
Wilbur K. Pierpont, vice-presi-
dent for business and finance, al-
so reported at the Regents meet-
ing that there is a lack in Ann
Arbor of skilled workmen for Uni-
versity building projects.
To alleviate this shortage, Pier-
point explained, the University has
publicized the availability of con-
struction employment in the Ann
Arbor -community and has offered
fringe benefits such as free tem-
porary housing ,for commuting
Pierpont said that the short-
age in workers has caused delays
in the University's building pro-
Greeks Extend
Cypriot House,
Office Terms
NICOSIA, Cyprus (IP-Despite
Turkish objections, the Cyprus
House of Representatives yester-
day passed two new laws-extend-
ing both President Archbishop
Makarios' term of office and the
present legislature's term of office.
The laws were passed unani-
mously by Greek members of the
house in the absence of their
Turkish Cypriot colleagues who
have not attended the house since
the outbreak of Cyprus' inter-
communal fighting in 1963.
The law' means that Makarios
and members of the house of
representatives will stay on for at
least another five years after their
terms ended Aug. 16.

A five-man subcommittee of the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee plans to initiate an examina-
tion of the University's ,books and
records next week.
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit)
said yesterday that auditors from
the legislative auditor general's
office will look over the Univer-
sity's finances and pick out sev-
eral areas for a more conentrati
ed study. He indicated that, ul ~-!
mately, the University's financial
records may be subjected to a
complete audit.7N
Faxon and possibly some other
members of his sub-committe
will be in Ann Arbor this morming
to join a meeting of the Regents
and the House Committee on Col-
leges and Universities. The meet-
ing was arranged last week at the
instigation of Rep. Vincent J
Petitpren (D-Wayne) the com-
mittee's chairman, to explore 'the
reasons behind the recent tuition
Faxon, too, expressed concern
over higher tuition, but added
that his interest in the University
is much broader than just that.
He said that even before the tu-
ition increase, he had contemplat-
ed looking into student economic

welfare at the University, includ-
ing the residence hall situation, he
noted that residence hall fees al-
so were raised recently.
Nevertheless, Faxon did idi-
cate he was unhappy that, the
University had not informed the
Legislature of plans to raise tu-
ition when the House was work-
ing on appropriations for 1965-66.
"When the University antci-
pates an increase in revenue we
should know about it when we
are figuring out the budget," he
said, explaining that in determin.
ing an appropriations figure the
Legislature evaluates needs in re-
lation to expected revenue and
must be informed of any changes
in these factors.
"We were completely surprised
at the tuition increase," he said
"In the past, the Republican
Legislature a 1 w a y s encouraged
schools to increase student fees
as a means of obtaining extra
revenue. We would rather appro-
priate the needed money from the
state or point out ways for the
schools to economize."
Faxon said that the investiga-
tion with the auditors next week
has not yet been planned thor-
oughly and that he had not per-
sonally informed University ad-
ministrators of his plans for in-
vestigation before making an an-
nouncement to the press.
He explained that he did no
complete arrangements with the
auditors office until Thursday
and learned of today's meeting
only Thursday night. He said he
then contacted House Speake
Joseph Kowalski (D-Detroit) an
Petitpren, and the present pla
was finalized.
Thus, Faxon said, he did not
have time to inform Universit:
administrators in private before
the public statement. He noted

Doppman n

To Perform

The .University Musical Society will present pianist William
Doppmann, '56M, Monday evening, in the fourth and final concert
of the Summer Series.
Doppmann will perform "Kreisleriana, Op. 16," by Robert
Schumann, the "Golberg" Variations, by J. S. Bach, and "Sonata

and composer-in-residence at the University. The work was com-
missioned for Doppman in 1961.
Doppmann, known to his Ann Arbor friends as "Skip," was
born in 1934 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He began his music study
at the age of five. He first appeared as a soloist with the Cincinnati
Symphony Orchestra when he was ten.
