Committee Asks'

Wessin Leaves Armed Forces;



Funds May Lead to Dominican



The State Senate Appropriations Committee introduced a bill
last night that would give the University $1.1 million more than was
allowed in Gov. George Romney's higher education budget; overall,
the bill would add $4.9 million to Romney's proposed higher education
budget for the whole state.
Under the bill, the University would get $900,000 for its regular
activities and $250,000 to provide for the enrollment of 200 freshmen
at its Flint branch next fall.
This bill was sent back to the appropriations committee for
rubber stamp approval and is expected to come under consideration

State Board
To Release
I4White Paper
An important development in
the long controversy over the au-
tonomy of Flint College is being
awaited by state and University
officials today.
The State Board of Education is
scheduled to send a "white paper"
to the Legislature today explaining
why it feels a new state college at
Flint, rather than an expanded
University branch, will provide
greater educational opportunity
for Flint area students.
University officials remained
mute yesterday on the proposed
statement of the board's reasons
for recommending Flint autonomy.
Executive Vice-President Marvin
L. Niehuss noted that the Univer-
sity would probably not make an
immediate reply to the board's
1K statement.
"We will have to wait to decide
upon a course of action until we
have had an opportunity to study
this recentstatement in detail,"
Niehuss said.
Board members hope the state-
ment will help sway lawmakers
toward backing the board in its
attempts to separate the Flint
branch from its University parent.
The state board reportedly will
also seek a meeting with Univer-
sity officials to arrange for an
orderly transitional period, as-
suming the Legislature votes in
favor of the board's recommenda-
Board President Thomas J.
Brennan said the board's recom-
mendation has not been adequate-
ly explained to the public. He said
the "white paper" would contain
the following points in the board's
* rationale:
-There is no question about
the board's jurisdiction in the
case of Flint under its constitu-
tional mandate to plan and coor-
dinate public education (Sen. Gil-
bert Bursley [R-Ann Arbor] point-
ed out that the board's function
was merely advisory.
-There is no organized opposi-
tion to the recommendation be-
sides at the University and at
Flint where philanthropist Charles
A. Mott has threatened to with-
draw an offer of $2.4 million for
Flint expansion if the board's pro-
Sposal is followed.
-University President Harlan
Hatcher has said the University
would agree to sever ties with the
Flint branch at a future date if
this was required under the mas-
ter plan. But, Brennan asked,
"What assurance do we have that
he will follow the board's advice
five years from now?"

Faculty Turnover
Sen. GilberthBursley (R-Ann
Arbor) said the committee i
creased the budget over the
amount proposed by Romney to
provide improvement in faculty
salary levels, and thus minimize
faculty turnover.
However, since Michigan's tenj
state-supported colleges and uni-I
versities enjoy autonomy from the
Legislature under the state con-
stitution, the increased funds
could be used as desired, Bursleyf
pointed out.
The committee also introduced;
a capital outlay bill, providingI
funds for continuing construction
of educational facilities, which
would give the University $3.7
million plus shared funds of $2.8
million with other state schools.
Continuing Construction
The bill provides $100,000 for
the east medical building and
$575,000 for the general hospital.
Medical science II building
would receive $2 million for con-f
tinuing construction (total cost
not to exceed $9.4 million) if- the
Legislature accepts the commit-
tee's recommendations, and $1
million for the dental building.
Additionally, a separate recom-
mendation of $2.8 million was
made for planning future con-
struction at Michigan's colleges
and universities under the cen-
tralized planning authority of the
state's department of adminis-
New Architecture Building
Although this amount is to be
shared in planning construction
for all 10 of the state's schools,
the University will receive funds
for planning an architecture
building, classroom and office
buildings, a heating plant, general
library, science building and a
residential college in the Huron
River area, Bursley said.
Of course, final passage of the

Study Revision
Of Congress
WASHINGTON (R) - A special
Senate-House group opened a
study of the operations of Con-;
gress yesterday, and the first wit-
ness said the legislative process is
"no longer in tune with the gen-
eral thinking of the times."
Sen. Joseph S. Clark (D-Pa),
the initial witness, called for
changes that would:
-Abolish the Senate filibuster
-Limit speeches lasting longer
than three hours
-Permit the televising of his-
toric 'congressional debates and
votes on bills, if authorized by a
specific vote.

In Mexico City, Uruguay and
Cuba lashed out at the United
States for its troop landings in
the Dominican Republic.
Resent U.S. Landing
The attack came during a meet-
ing of the Economic Commission
for Latin America (CEPAL). U.S.
delegate Robert M. Sayre had
pleaded Friday with the conferees
to stick to economics.
Uruguayan delegate Raul Ibar-
'a San Martin replied that eco-
nomic development and politics
cannot be separated. He said the
United States had violated a prin-
ciple of the Organization of Amer-
ican States (OAS) charter by its
unilateral action in the Domini-
can Republic.
- "No Uruguayan troops will land
in Santo Domingo," he declared.
His pledge aroused strong applause
among many delegates.
Cuba Agrees
Cuba's Francisco Garcia Valls,
deputy minister of economics ,took
a much stronger line, charging the
dispatch of American troops was
"typical" of U.S. policy.
"History once more proves us
right. The U.S. aggression is there
(in the Dominican Republic) to
stay," he said.
The Soviet Union's ambassador
to Mexico, Semion T. Bazarov, an
observer at the conference, said
his country "joins in the indig-
nation" at the U.S. troop landings
in both the Dominican Republic
and Viet Nam.

year, warned, however, that a city+
income tax may be necessary to
raise revenue inthe future.
Record Budget
She noted that, despite the rec-
ord high budget, many of City Ad-
ministrator Guy Larcom's original
requests for funds had been cut.
Yet, "In spite of these cuts of
things that are needed in a dy-
namically growing city such as
ours, our tax rate is almost to the
limitation set in the city charter.
It is certainly apparent to all of
us that there is, or will be before
we face the budget again, a need
for more revenue.
"Many different sources of rev-
enue have been suggesetd by tax
authorities, but I believe the one
we must focus on is the income
Although F. C. Pierce (D) also
said that the city would soon be
reachingits legalceiling for prop-
erty taxes, instead of advocating
an income tax, he suggested the
possibility of raising the property
tax ceiling.
Adequate Source
On the other hand, City Coun-
cil member Ricnard E. Balzhiser
(R) of the University's chemical
engineering dept. said that the
current legallimit on property tax
would be an adequate source of
revenue for Ann Arbor because of
the city's expanding tax base.
Currently the legal limit on
property taxes in Ann Arbor is
7.5 mils. The city is now taxing
at a rate .17 of a mill lower than
the legal limit.
Among the cuts made from
Larcom's original requests was
part of the appropriation for an
Ann Arbor committee to aid the
University's Sesquecentennial Cel-
ebration from $15,000 for the first
year to $12,500.

FreSe ec
eehNight Vigifl
The student protest of April 28
at Ohio State University organized
by the Free Speech Front proved
successful yesterday.
The Faculty Advisory Commit-
tee announced' that it will sub-
mit the results of its deliberations
on the Speaker's Rule controversy
to the Faculty Council June 8 in-
stead of the original date in July.
The Free Speech Front, a loose-
ly organized protest group similar
to Berkeley's Free Speech Move-
ment,rhas held anumber of ral-
lies and sit-ins and one teach-in
to protest and examine the OSU
speaker ban clause in the OSU
The original controversy arose
last April 21 when OSU Vice-
President John Corbally, Jr. in-
formed the student organization
which had invited Marxist speaker
Herbert Aptheker, to address them
that in all probability such a
speech would not be allowed.
This ban by the administration
precipitated a 1000-student picket
and sit-in at the administration
FSF resolved to take no further
action until April 28 to give Uni-
versity officials time to examine
the possibilities of liberalizing the
speaker ban regulations. However,
the administration and a faculty
committee decided to postpone
consideration of the question until
July. Finding this unsatisfactory,
FSF decided to hold an overnight
sit-in in the administration build-
ing on April 28.
After the building closed about
500 students remained and kept
an all night vigil. There were no
incidents and no arrests. The dem-
onstration was orderly and quiet.
Jeffrey Schwartz, a spokesman
for FSF, said recently that "the
all night sit-in was a victory be-
cause we were all orderly. We
will be persistent in our demands,
and we will continue to work un-
til all our demands are met."
Dean of Student Relations John
T. Bonner said, "The students
have lost considerable support
from those who were on their
side before this (concerning the
all night demonstration)."
It became apparent yesterday
that the all night vigil had ac-
complished its aims when it was
announced that in fact the Facul-

the $4,990,608 budget of fiscal 1964 were incurred by a 4 per cent
across the board wage hike to all city employes and an additional 5
per cent raise to members of the police force.
