Work on'U' Audit Begins Griffiths to


Officials fromatheslegislative
auditor's office are visiting Ann
Arbor this week to select portions
of the University financial sys-
tem for a more concentrated study
at a later date'.
The auditors' visit follows a
meeting last Saturday at which
University officials discussed state
support for higher education ana
the University's recent tuition in-
crease with several Lansing legis-
Leading participants said after

the meeting that it helped clear
up misunderstandings between the
University and the Legislature and
was a step toward improving fu-
ture communications.
The meeting was attended by
the Regents, top University ad-
ministrators, members of the
House Committee on Colleges and
Universities, representatives of the
State Board of Education and
members of the subcommittee of
the House Ways and Means Com-
mittee which instigated the com-
ing examination of the Universi-
ty's finances.
University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher noted that the meeting
was the first such gathering re-
quested by a legislative group-
a fact which he called encourag-
ing-because of concern that stu-
dent fees are too high.
In response to the legislators'
request for an explanation of the
recent fee hike, University offi-
cials presented a verbal ration-
ale, supplemented by charts and
graphs, to demonstrate the need
for the additional $1.7 million in
revenue which will be brought in
by the higher tuition rates.
While most of the legislators
seemed relatively satisfied that
the fee hike probably was justi-
fied, several conflicts emerged over
procedural issues.
Taking note of these, Rep. Mar-
vin Esch (R-Ann Arbor) called
attention to the need for defin-
ing the roles of the Legislature,
the State Board and the Regents
in determining such matters as
tuition rates.
In this line, both Reps. Jack
Faxon (D-Detroit) and Homer Ar-
nett (R-Kalamazoo) objected to
the fact that the House Ways and
Means Committee was not in-
formed of the possibility of rais-
ing student fees when it was con-
sidering the University's appropri-
ation a month ago. Faxon pointed
out that, in attempting to evalu-
ate the University's need in re-
lationship to its expected reve-
nue, knowledge of plans to in-
crease revenue through higher
tuition would have been a valuable
Past Practice
However, President Hatcher re-
plied that "in the past we have
always made our decision after
legislative appropriations have
been determined," and that the
University needs a definite state
support figure so that it can de-
termine if more revenue is nec-
essary to meet expenditures in
the coming year.
Rep. George F. Montgomery (D-
Detroit) questioned President
Hatcher about why, if the Uni-
versity was short of funds, it did
not appear before the Ways and
Means Committee to explain that

the $51.2 million appropriation,
then passed only by the Senate,
would be inadequate.
President Hatcher replied that
some members of the House group
had attended the earlier Senate
hearings at which the University
presented its case ,and that at
that time Ways and Means Com-
mittee Chairman Einar Earlandsen
(D-Escanaba) had informed Uni-
versity officials that they need not
repeat their presentation for the
Esch noted that a procedural
problem within the Legislature
affected was partly responsible for
confusion on this point. He said
that, customarily, members of
one house often attend the other's
hearings on an appropriations
issue, but that this year there'
apparently was some confusion.
Viet Policy:
Talks G Ot
WASHINGTON (W) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson met again
yesterday with his top advisers on
Viet Nam and made plans to con-
fer with Republican and Demo-
cratic leaders before deciding how
to reshape the United States role
in the war.
White House Press Secretary
Bill D. Moyers said Johnson's con-
sultations with the congressional
leaders could come today or
Wednesday. That would be about
a week since the President began
his lengthy series of White House
There was no indication when
Johnson might be ready to an-
nounce any final conclusions. The
major question is how much more
manpower and material the U.S.
must pour into the fighting and
maintain for backup strength.
Johnson met with his advisers
for three hours yesterday and
Moyers said he asked afterward
for more information to supple-
ment reports he received over the
weekend, some of them dealing
with manpower and equipment
Moyers said the group discussed
"v a r i o u s diplomatic initiatives
that this government has taken
in the past month and examined
in some detail the proposal made
by the President in San Francisco.
In that statement, he called upon
the United Nations to use its in-
fluence to "bring to the table
those who seem determined to
make war."
Moyers said Johnson "considers
that to be a bold and far reach-
ing proposal, which the group
discussed in relation to Ambassa-
dor Arthur J. Goldberg assuming
his duties at the UN.


Savio .aled
In Berkele y 1
Court Action
BERKELEY, Calif. (P) - Mario
Savio, former leader of the Uni-
versity of California Free Speech
Movement, was sentenced yester-
day to two concurrent 120-day
jail terms.
The sentence was handed down
by Municipal Judge Rupert Crit-
tenden after Savio refused a total
of 90 days in jail with two years
Savio said he preferred to serve
120 days in jail on charges of tres-
passing and resisting arrest rather
than accept probation terms that
would have prohibited him from
participating in any unlawful
demonstrations during probation.
Bride Sentenced
Savio's bride, the former Suz-
anne Goldberg, also turned down
probation and took concurrent 45-
sday sentences for trespassing and
resisting arrest.
"All the sentences were too
harsh," Savio said after his sen-
tencing. "Revolution is a positive
duty when power is in the hands
of the morally and intellectually
"I welcomed the chance to re-
ject probation because probation
imposes orders on how men should
act," Savio said.
Others of the 773 arrested were
sentenced by Crittenden, includ-
ing Matthew Hallinan, who got
30 days total on the two counts.
He is a son of San Francisco law-
yer Vincent Hallinan, once Pro-
gressive Party vice presidential
Before passing sentences yester-
day, Crittenden told defense at-

terms to anyone refusing proba-
Crittenden found X55 of the de-
fendants guilty June 23 after a
10-week trial without jury. Evi-
dence in that trial was used by the
judge to convict others until the
total found guilty reached 653.
Tuesday Session
He sentenced 91 last Tuesday,
but broke off the session after
some turned down probation. Most
were given 10-day suspended jail
sentences, $150 fines and one year

Court Post
Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON-President Lyn-
don B. Johnson will seriously con-
sider appointing Rep. Martha W.
Griffiths (D-Mich) to the Su-
preme Court post .recently vacated
by Arthur L. Goldberg, two sep-
arate and reliable sources here re-
ported yesterday.
Rep. Billie Farnum (D-Mich)
yesterday sent a letter to John-
son recommending Mrs. Griffith's
appointment. The reasons for ser-
iously considerating her are these,
the sources reported:
-She is a woman. President
Johnson is said to be seeking an-
other "out of the way" choice, a
choice as unlikely as was that of
Goldberg himself for the post of
permanent ambassador to the UN.
If Mrs. Griffiths were appointed,
she would be the first female
Supreme Court justice in history.
-The previous favorite for the
nomination, Johnson's close friend
and associate, Abe Fortas, is now
considered out of the running.
Talking to reporters recently,
Johnson indicated that the ap-
pointment would not go to those
mentioned most prominently in the
press. He mentioned no names.
Fortas' name, however, had been
the only one prominently discuss-
ed up to that point.'
-Mrs. Griffiths has a long rec-
ord in the Congress and previous
experience as a recorder and
judge. She received her law degree
from the University Law School,
and was a member of the state
Legislature from 1949-52. She
served as recorder and Judge of
Recorder's Court in Detroit in
1953. In 1954 she was elected to
the 84th Congress from Detroit's
17th District and has served there
since. She currently has assign-
ments to the powerful House Ways
and Means Committee and the
Joint Economic Committee of Con-
In addition, Mrs. Griffiths and
her. family has 'a long history-
and considerable support - in
Michigan Democratic politics. Her
husband, Hicks C. Griffiths, was
the law partner of G. Mennen
Williams before he became gov-
ernor in 1948.
She and her husband, along with
August Scholle, Neil Staebler and
Williams were at the core of the
movement after World War II
which is considered to have
brought the Michigan Democratic
Party into its recent prominence.
The coming appointment to the
Supreme Court will be the third
since President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower left office in 1961. The
first two were those of Goldberg
and Byron R. White, both of whom
were appointed by President John
F. Kennedy.
Goldberg was appointed to the
UN post to replace Adlai E. Stev-
enson, who died July 14 in Lon-
don. He had served in his post
since 1961, when he was appointed
by President Kennedy.
Goldberg was quite reluctant to
take the post, referring to his
three years on the Supreme Court
as the "three best years" of his
The name of Fortas was the
only one prominently mentioned
as a possibility for the nomina-
tion before Mrs. Griffiths name
came up. Some have speculated
that Johnson could appoint Sen.
Richard Russell (D-Ga) to the
post, but most feel that the ap-
pointment of the conservative
Russell would be politically too

City Council Postpones
Reading High-Rise Limits
Ann Arbor City Council decided at its regular meeting last night
to postpone first reading of high rise apartment limitation recom-
mendations until after informal public hearings are held.
Presented to the Council last week by the Joint Committee on
Central Business District High Rise Development and Parking, the
recommendations propose an 18-story limit on buildings, create new
restricted zoning districts, and require off-street parking facilities
for high rise apartments.
Solutions to specific problems will be discussed at a meeting to-
night of the City Planning Commission, which is studying the recom-
mendations, representatives of the
Commission told the Council.
The Council agreed that the
primary question was why certain
value judgments were made by the
committee, such as the location
of new zones and the 18-story lim-
itation on buildings.
Mayor Wendell Hulcher raised
the question of the University's
position on height limitation. It
was agreed that a letter be sent
inviting the University to partici-
pate in the informal meeting.

Sunday by chief Soviet negotia-
tor Semyon K. Tsarapkin the U.S.
will press for agreement.
Tsarapkin said there is no hope
of agreement on a treaty to halt
the spread of nuclear weapons so
long as the West insists on build-
ing up a multilateral nuclear force
-including West Germany.
Foster said the U.S. will not
be making any new proposals.
"We have made a number of
general proposals in the past and
we invariably develop them fur-
ther when we come to Geneva,"
he said.

He avoided saying whether the

Ranging in age from 19 to 24,
the staff of the Courier are most-
ly northern studentsror recently
graduated students from various
colleges and universities from the
East. The present staff of 18 will
be expanded as the paper grows.
The circulation of the Courier
is around 19,000 and is distributed
almost entirely in Alabama. Ex-
cept for a small number of elite
Southern liberals the Alabama
readership is almost entirely
Negro. In order to attract a larger
white readership and in response
to some critics, the Courier will
in the future present a changed
format and slant which will in-
clude a wider audience.
Cummings, originator of the
Courier and an associate editor,
summed up the goals of the paper:
"The purpose is to put out an
accurate and informative paper."
He went on to say that publica-
tion would continue on a year
round basis and that there was
news in abundance suitable for
publication. He noted that a num-
ber of presently enrolled students
would be returning to school in
the fall and leave the paper short
handed. The Courier is presently

ment and with some knowledge
of journalism to write for the

and personnel to fill the position."
Lavish Praise
Reaction to Heyns' decision in-
cluded lavish praise for his work
here and regret that he will leave.
"We are keenly disappointed,"
Regent Eugene B. Power declared.
"He has filled a very major posi-
tion in the University and filled it
with distinction. In our loss, Cali-
fornia gains, and perhaps their
need is the greater."
President Hatcher declared: "I
congratulate the University of Cal-
ifornia on being able to woo such
a distinguished person. Roger
Heyns is one of Michigan's finest
products-and we're sorry to have
to export him."
'Deep Regret'
Haber expressed "deep regret at
this decision, which was highly
personal and which we sought to
influence unsuccessfully." Haber,
one of the first of many faculty
spokesmen to call for a concerted
effort to keep Heyns here, added
that "I think every sort of effort
that was necessary was brought to

week led to various proposals that
he be given greater authority and!

and the other vice-presidents. But
President Hatcher said Friday that
Heyns wanted no such reorganiza-
tion to take place in his behalf.

State Stands
To Receive
$20 Million
Two factors will determine
whether the state of Michigan will
benefit from a higher education
bill now being considered in Con-
If the bill is passed, Michigan
stands to receive $20 million in
higher education funds. However,
if the bill is not passed, the state
will receive the $10 million it cur-
rently receives.
The first factor is whether the
bill passes the House and Senate
According to John McKevitt,
assistant to the vice-president in
charge of business and finance,
the second factor is whether the
Congress appropriates the amount
of money which the bill calls for.
The bill only sets a ceiling on how
much money can be appropriated,
it does not appropriate the funds
themselves, he explained.
The bill which provides finan-
cial aid to students and to colleges,
will have an indirect effect on
the University as far as aid for
construction goes, McKevitt ex-
The bill, aimed mainly at help-
ing programs already in operation
is slanted toward helping colleges
still developing, he said.
While the direct impact of the
bill, McKevitt explained, will be
in providing the University with
funds for library training pro-
grams, extension service and con-
tinuing education program, bene-
fits will accrue to the student
needing financial aid.
Financial Aid
According to Walter Rea, direc-
tor of financial aids, the bill will
provide a source of funds upon
which the University may draw for
student aid.
He added, however, that unless
fast action is taken, the bill would
not have any effect on finances
for the 1965-66 'year.
He viewed the bill as an example
