Protest Wave
Rep. Weston Vivian (D-Ann
Arbor) has expressed his support
and sympathy for the growing in-
volvement of the academic com-
munity in the political sphere in
a recent interview with The Daily.
Referring to the University pro-
fessors who visited Washington
this April in an "academic lobby"
to change present Viet Nam policy,
Vivian defending their tactics,
said, "Lobbying is the way the
system works. I have all sorts of
lobbyists in my office every day.
"But it is almost impossible to
say how effective their lobbying
has been, at so short a date."
However, Vivian referred to the
University's teach-in as "basically
a meeting." Therefore, he felt that
* most of the 'controversy over the
teach-in was "inappropriate."

onal stand on Viet Nam, but he

U' Receives $165,000

To Receive
HEW Funds
For Projects
The University has recently re-
ceived grants from the Depart-
ment of Health, Education and
'Welfare totaling $78,000 to'stim-
ulate research and aid in the
training of teachers in special
The grants were awarded as
part of Title III of the HEW bill.
The University will receive $24,000
as part of a $1.1 million grant to
44 colleges and universities. The
second grant, part of $4.7 million
appropriation to 152 colleges and
universities, will free $54,000 to
the University.
To Further Research
The funds will be used to fur-
ther research and teacher educa-
tion in the areas of mental re-
tardation, emotional disturbances
speech correction and crippling
diseases, Prof. Melvyn Semmel of
the department of Psychological
Foundations said last night.
Grants will be awarded to stu-
dents at the senior, masters and
post-masters degree level by the
Committee on Special Education
which Semmel heads.
Full-time students at 'the sen-
ior level will receive stipends of
$1600. All other students eligible
for, the stipends will receive $2,-
000 and an additional $400 for
each dependent.
"There is a tremendous need
for teachers trained in special ed-
ucation. Last year the University
received requests for 1000 new
teachers. However, only 50 could
be supplied," Semmel said.
Two Sources
The legislation grew out of two
interrelated sources. "Certainly
the critical need provoked the leg-
islation," Semmel said.
But the legislation also arose
out of the great interest which the
Kennedy administration and fam-
ily have had in the area of men-
tal retardation, Semmel explained.
A colloquium on special educa-
tion which was held late last se-
mester was also part of and fi-
nanced by the funds released by
the bill.

Rebels Elect Dominican Head

OAS Awaits
Congress Enthusiastic
About New Spending
WASHINGTON (P) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson asked Con-
gress for a $700 million vote of
confidence yesterday to show the
world that thiscountry is ready
to ""walk the last mile" against
the spread of Communism.
Johnson called members of key
congressional committees to the
White House for a review of the
fighting in Viet Nam and the
Dominican Republic.
A five-nation peace mission sent
to the Dominican Republic by the
Organization of American States
last Sunday also reported yester-
day that opposing sides in the
civil strife there are in agreement
on major peace plans.
Combine Forces
The committee recommended
that the American republics which
"are in a position to do so estab-.
fish a combined inter-American
military force under the Organi-
zation of American States" to help
return the Dominican Republic to
The group headed by OAS Am-
bassador Ricardo M. Colombo of
Argentina reported it is "awaiting
the formalization of the points
which have already been accepted
by both parties."
These points are confirmation
of the cease-fire, demarcation and
enlargement of the international
security zone to include all em-
bassies, evacuation of refugees and
distribution of food, medicine and
medical equipment to all sectors
of the population without regard
to parties.

With few exceptions, congres-
sional leaders responded enthus-
iastically to Johnson's request and
hastened back to Capitol Hill to
start whipping the money bill
through their committees.
House Republicans already had
invited Johnson to ask for more
military funds. Going even further
than his party's policy committee,
House GOP leader Gerald R. Ford
of Michigan said in a statement
yesterday, "Our nation's fight

Urges U.S.
Of Troops
Mrs. Bosch Requests
Recognition of New
Insurgent Forces
Francisco Caamano Deno, military
rebel chief, was sworn in by his
insurgents yesterday as provision-
al president of the Dominican Re-
public with the blessings of ex-
President Juan D. Bosch.
A United States official source
promptly said the move changed
nothing in the revolt-stricken Ca-
ribbean country.
Caamano called - the&- na-
tions to recognize his government
and expressed hope that U.S.
troops would quickly leave the
country, Otherwise, he said, the
people might turn against the

U.S. forces moved in last- Wed-
nesday on orders of President
Lyndon B. Johnson to protect
Americans and to block any Com-
munist takeover as fighting raged
between forces favoring and op-
posing a return of exiled President
Juan Bosch.
Caamanp said Bosch approved
his election as provisional presi-
dent. In Washington, Mrs. Bosch
appealed to Johnson and to the
American people for support of
the new government.
No Paratroopers
"We need your help and un-
derstanding, not your paratroop-
ers," she said in a public state-
In a news conference, Johnson
said he thought it was "beyond
the realm of prediction right now"
to guess how long U.S. forces will
stay in the Dominican Republic.
Other developments include:
--In the UN' Security Council,
Uruguay denounced what it call-
ed the new "Johnson doctrine" in
Latin America and suggested the
council call for a cease-fire and
immediate end to unilateral mili-
tary action.
-In San Juan, Puerto Rico,
Bosch told an interviewer the U.S.
is suffering from "Communism
psychosis" and that its troop
landings had helped rather than
hindered the Communist cause in
Latin America.
-The Organization of American
States peace commission here
messaged Washington that oppos-
ing sides are in agreement on ma-
jor peace plans.
-In Miami, Caamano's father,
Fausto, said he did not "like the
idea" of his son being made pro-
visional president. He said a civil-
ian should have been given the
job to avoid "an encounter with
those defending the other side."
Caamano took the oath in a
shrine in downtown Independence

)nal Teach-In Gains Impetus


Viet Nam now serves as a co-
ordinating body for movements
on 150 campuses throughout
the country. "There's a good
chance we will be hooked up
with more than 60," Sahlins
said. He added that the pos-
sibility of television coverage
was being investigated.
Defense of the Administra-
tion's policies in Viet Nam will
be made at the teach-in by
McGeorge Bundy, special as-
sistant to President Lyndon B.
Johnson for national security
affairs, and Arthur Schlesinger
Jr. plus a panel of supporters
from the academic world.
Representing the committee
will be Prof. George Kahin of
Cornell University, assisted by
Prof. Hans Morganthau of the
University of Chicago and a
panel of experts.

mately 3000 students partici-
pated in an all-night series of
discussions, speeches and sem-
inars on the problems facing
the United States in the unde-
clared war in Viet Nam.
F o r m a 1 planning started
April 17 in an Ann Arbor meet-
ing of representatives from six
universities including the Uni-
versity, Michigan State Uni-
versity, University of Wiscon-
sin, Massachusetts Institute of
Technology, WashingtondUni-
versity in St. Louis and the
University of Chicago. At this
time the Universities Commit-
tee on Problems of War and
Peace also gave aid and co-
operation to the movement.
Since the original teach-in at
the University 50 colleges and
universities have held or been
involved in separate teach-ins

munity but for the democratic
process as a whole. We feel
that there are political and
moral questions which members
of the academic community
and others who are skilled and
who have information ,should
be consulted just as in military
and other questions."~
He went on to say that he
thought the teach-in would
provide a direct effect in that
the administration would find
its present policies more diffi-
cult to pursue.
When asked about the fre-
quent charge made by admin-
istration leaders concerning the
qualifications of protestors to
challenge administration poli-
cies because of lack of secret
information, Sahlins answered
by noting the apparent dupli-
city of Administration state-
ments. "They say," he said, "on

University Prof. Eric Wolf, a
spokesman for the group, said
that "we reject the assumption
that we are incompetent to
make a judgment because we
do not have access to theim-
mediate confidential intelli-
gence available to high offi-
cials. What is happening in
Viet Nam now is not isolated.
It is part of a world political,
economic and social situation of
the past and future. We believe
some scholarship is needed."
According to Sahlins the
teach-in is a "unique kind of
event in American politics"
because the congress is not pre-
pared to take any stand con-
trary to administration policies
even though, off the record,
there is widespread dissent.
Because of this an expression
of the wishes of the American
people is not possible through
