The problems of an all-Negr
school district that have plague
Detroit and its suburbs for ove
15 years still appeared unsettle
last night after state and county
attempts to solve them.
The Oakland County Board o
Education yesterday dissolved the
financially unstable Carver Schoo
District and attached it to an al
white neighbor, the Oak Park Dis
trict, over protests by Oak Par
residents. The board's action wa
caused by a resignation of all of
Carver's school board members
in September. The resignation, an
the lack of candidates, in an en
suing special school board elec-
tion, necessitated the district'F
dissolution and its attachment t
an adjacent area.
Carver lies immediately north
of Detroit.
In selecting the predominantly
Jewish suburb of Oak Park, th
county bypassed alternatives t
attach part of Carver to the Fern
dale district, an integrated system
#,We reached our decision after
hearing testimony from both Oak
Park and Ferndale school repre-
seatatives." Dr. Roy Emerson
Oakland County Superintendent
Governor Williams had urged
the dissolution of the Carver dis-
trict at a meeting of its residents
this summer. He told them thai
their school district could not sup-
port an adequate kindergarten
through 12th grade system on its
low tax 'base. Carver had been
forced to operate a senior high
-school after Detroit, Oak Park
and Ferndale had denied requests
to accept Carver students on a
tuition basis in their secondary
schools. Detroit had been educat-
ing the Carver youngsters for a
number of years, but felt its
schools were 'too overcrowded to
permit any new influx of pupils
from outside its own system.
Oak Park residents appear
adamant that the Carver chil-
dren should not'be "thrust upon"
them. Racial bigotry flared brief-
ly in this young suburb when citi-
zens held an open meeting two
months ago to discuss the possi-
bility of accepting tuition students
from Carver. One resident describ-
ed the Negro youngsters living in
Carver as "whores and hoodlums"
and asked the Oak Parkers if
they wanted their children "to
associate with such people."

Better Contacts
The Graduate Student Council,
meeting in Rackham's East Lee-

ture Room last night, made plans
to improve the communication be-
tween the council and graduate
students, and increase the num-
ber of departments represented on
the council.
Each of the University's 60
graduate departments is entitled
to at least one seat, and some-
times more than one, on the
council. At present there are for-
ty members on the council.
The group also discussed means
to improve the continuity of the

new members in the spring of
each year, instead of electing them

.,For Future
Even though the Republicans
d met defeat on the national and
e statewide levels, the local GOP
- victors expressed optimism for the
times to come.
Incumbent Congressman George
Meader (R-Ann Arbor) predicted
that President-elect John F. Ken-
nedy would meet opposition in the
next Congress when he presents
his legislative program.
"In view of the Republican
gains in the House," he said, "I
would say that this Congress will
be even less prone to welfare state
legislation than the last one.
Many of the Democratic one-term
d wonders have been defeated and
(Teamster President James R.)
r Hoffa's purge was a flop.
y ' Notes Indication
"This indicates that perhaps
f the country at large does not con-
e cur with the Reuther-Kennedy
l liberal thinking."
l Meader said that the "New
- Deal-Fair Deal-New Frontier"
k wing of the Democratic Party was
s In reality a minority of that par-
f ty, perpetuated only by the tra-
s ditional ties in the more conser-
I vative Southern states.
- However, he dispelled any idea
- of a GOP-Dixiecrat coalition.
s "There's no such thing," he said,
U "These congressmen simply vote
the same way because the people
1 back home have the same beliefs."
Express Optimism
The two new state legislators
o from Ann Arbor also expressed
optimism about the state's course
under the administration of Gov-
ernor-elect John B. Swainson.
Both Senator - elect Stanley
: Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) and Rep-
resentative-elect Gilbert Bursley
were confident that the passage
' 'of the sales tax referendum would
relieve the state's immediate cash
crisis. Bursley said that while the
penny hike would time Michigan;
t over for at least two years, it
would not be a substitute for
general tax revision.
Bursley said that the passage
some discussion on whether or
not the Legislature should boost'
the tax the full one per cent or
' not. He pointed out that, in spite1
of what the opposition had claim-:
ed, the penny increase would be
more than enough to handle the
situation, as far as relieving the
present crisis.
Education One Problem
Both Bursley and Thayer saidf
that higher education was one of:
e the first problems for the Legis-
lature to tackle.
"Their share depends on the1
revenue situation," Thayer said.,
"The University has to moves
ahead as fast as available fundss
will permit. I will certainly ad-
vocate the best interests of the!
University, so long as they pre-c
sent legitimate requests."1
Brusley said that the passage
of the sales tax would provideI
revenue to satisfy University eedst
and to assume a small amount of
capital outlay. He looked to gen-c
eral tax revision to provide moreI
sufficient funds.-
Both men anticipated some fric-
tion between the governor and the
Legislature, but hoped that te7
impasse of the last 12 years could!
be eased. Thayer called for an end
to partisan squabbling and con-
centration on constructive legis-

Late Ballots
Retain Lead
Of Kennedy
WASHINGTON () - A late
trickle of returns from Tuesday's
election yesterday continued the
razor-thin popular vote edge be-
tween president - elect John F.
Kennedy and his vanquished Re-
publican rival, Vice - President
Richard M. Nixon.
This was the count when 163,745
precincts out of the total of 166,072
had reported: Kennedy 33,541,548
(50.2 per cent); Nixon 33,232,508
(49.8 per cent).
Kennedy led in 23 states with
332 electoral votes; Nixon in 26
states with 191; needed to win 269.
Two Indefinite
In the electoral vote count only
California (32 votes) and Alaska
(3) were still not definite; Ken-
nedy was leading in California
and Nixon in Alaska, for a Ken-
nedy edge of 332 to 191 in the
electoral total. Even if California
finally switched to Nixon, Kennedy
would still be the winner with 300
electoral votes, since it takes but
269 to win.
The popular vote was the tight-
est in any election since 1888 when
Republican Benjamin Harrison
won an electoral vote victory even
though his popular vote fell more
than 100,000 behind that of Demo-
crat Grover Cleveland.
Allowing for minor party votes,
not yet tabulated in most states,
and still - to-be - counted absentee
ballots, it is conceivable that Ken-
nedy might wind up with less than
a majority of the popular vote,
and still be elected.
Absentees Remain
There may be as many a half
a million absentee ballots still to
be counted. Ten states have ab-
sentee ballots to be tabulated. The
ten: California. Missouri, Florida,
Washington, Kansas, Maryland,
Nebraska, North Dakota, Pennsyl-
vania and Rhode Island.
These states have a total of 127
electoral votes but only in four,
with a total of 64 electoral votes,
did there seem to be even an
outside chance of changing the

The plan, which will go into
effect next September, provides
that any freshman who has been1
given permission not to live in
residence halls may become an
associate member of a House.
Except in rare instances the only
freshmen who would be eligible
for such a program would live in
Ann Arbor with their parents.
Men who have lived in the house
at one time and are now living
elsewhere may also attain associ-
ate membership but would not be
able to play on house teams in
intra-mural athletics. Otherwise
they could participate in house
programs and social functions at
the disgression of the individual
The only debate on the plan
centered on House dues. IQC de-
cided that the individual house
could determine its own dues for
associate members but that quad-
rangle and IQC dues must be paid.

areas," John Hale, assistant dean

of men for residence halls said. I

Hoover, CIA Head,
Accede to Request
Of President-Elect
President-elect John F. Kennedy
quickly accepted yesterday an in-
vitation for an early meeting with
President Dwight D. Eisenhower
to arrange an orderly transfer of
government power.
Kennedy disclosed this at a
swiftly-paced news conference at
which he named Clark M. Clifford,
Washington lawyer, and former
special counsel to President Harry
S. Truman, as his representative
in co-ordinating arrangements.
Two Accede ,
And, in rapid-fire succession, he
told reporters in the crowded Na.
tional Guard Armory in this Cape
Cod community that both J. Edgar
Hoover, long-timedirector of the
Federal Bureau of Investigation,
and Allen W. Dulles, director of
the Central Intelligence Agency,
have acceded to his personal re-
quest that they stay on in those
key jobs.
Kennedy picked Theodore Soren-
son of Lincoln, Neb., a key figure
in his victorious campaign organi-
zation, for the coveted role of
special counsel to the president.

And he said he will fly to Palm
Beach, Fla., today for a vacation
to be interrupted briefly next
Thursday for a flight to Johnson
City, Texas, to ponfer;with Sen.
Lyndon B. Johnson, his vice-presi.
Kennedy made political history
-by announcing the appointment
of a Negro, Andrew P. Hatcher of
San Francisco, to serve as Associ-
ate Press Secretary at the White
House. Hatcher's appointment was
announced along with the widely-
forecast selection of Pierre Salin-
ger, his campaign press chief, to
succeed James C. Hagerty as
White House press secretary.
While Kennedy told reporters
he is not ready to announce his
choice of Secretary of State or
other cabinet officers, he desig-
nated Clifford, who played a lead-
ing role in the Truman adminis-
tration, to arrange with persons
"all meetings of the executive de-
partments and representatives of
the next administration."
Seize Control
In Viet Nam
States officials said last night re-
ports from Viet Nam indicate an
army coup has forced the resig-
nation of President Ngo Dinh
The reports are considered by
American authorities to be true.
The army coup apparently was
led by a 28-year-old United States
trained officer, Maj. Du Quoc
Dong, in command of the First
Paratroop Battalion in Saigon.
The action bore a marked simi-
larity to the Aug. 9 coup in Laos,
led by paratroop Capt. Kong Le,
which led to the upset of the pro-
Western government in Laos.
The reports received here indi-
cate that the presidential palace
in Saigon ha3 been taken over by
the leaders of the coup.
The action apparently came as
a total surprise.

Viet Nam army forces have been
fighting a series of jungle skirm-
ishes with battalion-sized units of
the Communist Viet Nam guer-
rillas in the high plateau area
northeast of Saigon and along the
Viet Nam-Laos border.
The situation in Saigon, the
capital, had been reported rela-
tively quiet.

Brothers Four Started Singing Just for Fun'

"We adapt our music from folk music, to make it more widely
acceptable," said Dick Foley, of the Brothers Four, who appeared
last night in Hill Auditorium.
The singing group demonstrated this adaptation backstage after
the performance, by playing and singing their own, fast-moving ar-
rangement of "Green Pastures" just after a visiting girl folksinger
had sung it in a slow, mournful style.
The Brothers Four first began singing for fun, during Rush Week
at their fraternity at the University of Washington.
Engagements for a few local campus functions followed, and
then a job in a Seattle nightclub. Their break came when they
auditioned, and got a job, at the "hungry I" in San Francisco, in
April, 1959. They had auditioned more as a joke than as a serious
application for a job.
While playing at the "hungry I," the group was heard by a man
