Possible Means of Implementation
Also Subject of Disagreement
Following early Thursday morning passage of a new regulation
on acquiring membership selection information, Student Government
Council members were still debating over which SGC functions the
regulation is designed to faclitat.
Nor were they fully agreed n the mechanics of implementation.
SOC President John Feldkamp, '61, said the motion replaces a
regulation which requires the organizations to file ther constitutions
with the deans. "We, not the deans, need the information, because
we are the ones who recognize student organizations," he said.
Feldkamp contends that the information is to facilitate SC's
function of recognition, rather than to implement the membership
a lection committee's work. "We
could have passed this before the
RN ir membership selection committee

bershipis part of recognition, but

Grand Valley
Seeks Loan
Of Official
The board in control of the
infant Grand Valley State College
yesterday set up an administrative
body calling for a member to be
'loaned' to it by the University,
while University officials express-
ed surprise at the proposal.
The new group, which was voted
into existence by a regular meet-
ing of the board in control in
Muskegon, will consist of 5 mem-
bers, Besides the University,

his statements that the University
had agreed to supply his school

To Vacate Honors Post


Prof. Robert C. Angell of the
sociology department, director of
the honors program since its in-
ception in 1957, said yesterday he
will not reassume the position
after his leave from the University
next semester.
Roger B. Heyns, dean of the
literary college, said a successor
has not been selected and may not
be for some time. "It would be
wrong to rush to make an appoint-
ment as important as this is," he
The honors program, now in its
fourth year, has expanded from

Pair Asked
To Meeting
Prof. Samuel Hayes of the eco-
nomics department said last night
that he had invited Alan and
Judith Guskin, Grads., leaders of
Americans Committed to World
Responsibility, to attend a foreign
policy workshop with him in
Washington next week.
The Guskins indicated they
would accept the invitation.
The workshop, which will deal
with "Foreign Aid for the Sixties,"
is sponsored by the National Con-
ference for International Social
and Economic Development. This
organization was formed by some
of the men who were involved in
the development of the original
Point Four program, Prof. Hayes
Prof. Hayes said that the stu-
dents might have the opportunity
to meet Prof. Maurice Albertson
of Colorado State University. Prof.
Albertson was recently appointed
by the International Cooperation
Administration to conduct a study
of the problems and possibilities
of a youth corps.
This study was authorized by
the Heuss amendment to the Mu-
tual Security Act passed by Con-
gress last summer.
The ICA suggested to Prof. Al-1
bertson that he contact Prof.
Hayes, who has been working on
a similar study at the request of
President-elect John F. Kennedy:

grams of technical assistance.
Prof. Albertson plans to submit
lists of questions related to a
youth corps to student groups for
study and discussion.

ently, has already begun to set

Dean Heyns pointed out that
when the program was set up it
was understood that the director-.
ship would be rotational on a
three- or four-year basis.
Carry on Tradition .
"The problem now is to find
someone who will carry on the fine

NSA Blasts Louisiana,
Evasio ofsItegration.
The United States National Student Association has issued a
statement to the governor and legislature of Louisiana condemning
attempts to evade integration of public schools there.
"The statement is in line with the NSA policy on discrimination,"
John Feldkamp,''61, chairman of the Executive Committee of NSA
said. The statement, which was released by NSA President Richard
A. Rettig, reads:
"The United States National Student Association condemns the
action of the Governor and Legislature of the State of Louisiana for

Allies 'Competitors'
Our foreign aid program has so
assisted free world nations that
"they have become competitors"
in international trade, Prof. Rog-
ers continued. "If we do not trade
with the other countries of the
free world, Russia will."
Prof. Rogers spoke to a study
conference of over 200 Michigan
bankers, sponsored by the Michi-
gan Banker's Association and the
business administration school.
Predicts Decline
Prof. Paul W. McCracken of the
business administration school,
speaking earlier to the same group,
predicted a continued decline in
business conditions through the
first quarter of 1961, although the
current recession will probably
prove "somewhat milder" than the
one in 1958.
