C PIC SpeakerI
Tells of Negro
Voting1c PlighJLt
Gathering on election night to
discuss the problems of disen-
franchised Southern Negroes, a
small group of students meeting
under the auspices of tlhe Politi-
cal Issues Club heard some first-
hand evidence from a former In-
structor at Tuskegee Institute.
Singer Buchanan, Grad, detail-
ed his unsuccessful attempts to
register as a voter in Macon
County, Ala., and concluded:
"rI -keep trying the legal way,
and if I can't do it that way, there
will come other ways."
"I really feel sorry for the vote
registrars in Tuskegee because
they see complete annihilation in
the pressure to vote," he said.
"They are making a last ditch
The Negro population of the
county (numerically superior)
keeps trying to register-90 per
cent of those rejected hold univer-
sity degrees, he declared. Buchan-
an himself has failed to qualify as
a voter because of "illiteracy."
First Problem
"When a Negro in Macon Coun-
ty wants to register, the first
problem is finding the registrars
in session. Then we are asked to
take certain tests, such as repeat-
ing the preamble to the Constitu-
tion, which I had to do," he said.
Most of the would-be Negro
voters, after completing such rig-
orous testing, never receive any1
reply from the registrars, accord-
ing to a news film entitled "Re-
port from Alabama" shown at the
"But the whole broad problem
is not purely a Southern one,"
Buchanan pointed out. "I had an
awful time finding a place to live
in Ann Arbor-and money was
no problem.
No One Answer
"Yet it's important to remem-
ber that what can be done in one
town, cannot be done in another.
I don't think there's one answer."
Offering one possible solution to
the problem, William Livant,
Grad, PIC member who addressed
the meeting, suggested that pres-
sure from the people for civil
rights must be levied against the
"At a time when most people are
laying down their political initia-
tive for another four years, it is
our job to pick it up, by pressing
for the right to vote for all citi-
zens," he declared. "The pot must
begin to boil before Congress

propriationrequests from all state
Budget Division
The recommendation of the
budget division goes to the gover-
nor who, after further considera-
tion, presents his program to the
Legislature when it convenes in
The $41 million for 1961-82 re-
quested by the Regents at their
last meeting set a new record for
the University,
At that time, President Hatcher
said the request, based on an esti-
mated increase in enrollment of
771 to 1,271, had been carefully
studied and reduced to minimum
levels before being considered by
the Regents.
State Responsibility
But he also pointed out that the
University shares with the state
administration and the Legisla-
ture the responsibility for main-
taining its "position of eminence
in American higher education."
To this end, this year's appro-
priation request emphasizes "pro-
tection of present faculty" by ask-
ing for funds sufficient to pro-
vide widespread merit increases
and enlargement of the faculty by
Navy B.ases.
LONDON OM - The United
States agreed unconditionally yes-
terday to quit the major part of
its five base areas in the British
West Indies, but said it hopes to
stay on in some considered essen-
tial to Western defense.
At the same time American del-
egates to a three-sided confer-
ence joined Britali in promising
economic aid to the West Indies
after that emerging common-
wealth state becomes independ-
A communique issued after a
five-day conference said all three
parties accepted the "basic prin-
ciple that the West Indies, when
independent, would have the right
to form its own alliances and to
conclude such agreements as it
thought fit regarding military
bases on its soil."
The announcement thus spelled
a drastic revision of the historic
1941 agreement between Sir Win-
ston Churchill and the late Pres-
ident Franklin Roosevelt. Under
this, Britain gave the Americans
base rights , in the West Indies
until the year 2040 in return for
50 used destroyers and other mil-
itary equipment at a crucial time
in the war against the Nazis.
The five bases are one each in
Antigua, Jamaica and Santa Lu-
cia and two in Trinidad.

Asks Seat
For Self
President Joseph Kasavubu de-
livered a dramatic appeal to the
United. Nations General Assembly
yesterday for immediate seating
of a delegation headed by himself
and representing all factions- in
his chaotic African republic.
But Kasavubu was denounced
immediately by Ismael Tour e of
Guinea, who charged that the
Congo leader's trip here was spon-
sored by colonialist and imperial-
ist powers. Guinea is one of eight
Asia-African nations supporting a
proposal that Assemblydrecogni-
tion be given, a rival delegation
representing deposed Premier Pa-
trice Lumumba.

sessions of this Assembly.
Credentials Group
Kasavubu appealed to the cre-
dentials committee, which has not
yet reported on which Congo fac-
tion should be seated, "to exam-
ine without delay" the credentials
of his delegation,
He said his delegation included
representatives of rebellious Ka-
tanga and Kasai provinces, and
declared "this gives you an idea
of the unity I have gathered
around me."

New Cultural
Plan Aims To Attract
Educated Personnel
Governor G. Mennen Williams
yesterday named a 68-member
cultural commission for the state.
Williams sees improving culture
as a way to attract highly-
educated scientific and technolo-,
gical personnel for industry in
the state.
Wayne State University vice-
president William Birenbaum, is
chairman of the committee, which
is supposed to "determine-the pro-
per role for the government of

Choreographer Agnes DeMille
and composer Aaron Copeland
have consented to serve as con-
sultants to the commission, along
with Lloyd Goodrich, director of
the Whitney Museum of Art in
New York.
"We are well known for auto-
mobiles and for our scientific and4
cultural strength, but it is often
overlooked that Michigan stands
among the leaders in the country
in the number of creators in the
arts and scholars in the arts we
possess," Birenbaum said.
The state should seriously con-
sider providing financial support
for cultural institutions, he said,
adding that while the commissiori
will have to study the existing
situation, as long as he is chair-
man "this will not be just a
study commission."
Birenbaum also claimed Michi-
gan will be pioneering in having
the government assume a role in
cultural development, and that
this committee could be the be-
ginning of a ntional pattern of
cultural development groups.

Army Adjutant
He said an army adjutant and
a non-commissioned officer who
were members of Kamitatu's
Bambala tribe brought a squad of
infantry and arms to the parlia-
ment building early yesterday,
claiming to have orders from Mo-
butu to take over the guard.
Loyal Mobutu troops guarding
the building refused to be tricked
and disarmed their rivals without
a shot being fired, the colonel
Mobutu alleged that. the opera-
tion was staged by Kamitatu with
the connivance of the United Na-
tions. Kamitatu disclaimed knowl-
edge of the incident.
In Rage
Mobutu was in a rage. He de-
liberately missed a meeting with
the acting UN mission chief, Brig-
adier Indar Jit Rikhye of India.
"These Indians who run the
United Nations here are doing
everything they can to bring
Lumumba back to power and turn
the Congo into a Soviet state,"
Mobutu told hastily summoned
newsmen at his fortified camp on
the outskirts of Leopoldville.'
"I am an anti-Communist and
proved it by expelling the Soviet
and Czech missions," he said.
"Never, never will they be permit-
ted to return as long as I am
alive." 1
