Couneil To Consider
Constitutions Motion
Seasonwein, Trost To Move SGC
Pass Procedures for Documents
Student Government Council will debate tonight on a motion
establishing procedures for the newly-required membership prac-
tices statements from fraternities and sororities.
Interfraternity Council President Jon Trost, '61, and Roger
Seasonwein, '61, will introduce the motion, which outlines under
what conditions SGC, committee on membership or other official
organs of the University may use the information.
Opposing Trost and Seasonwein, Council President John Feld-
kamp, '61, contends that a written letter from the Council revealing

For Paper
At its meeting last night, the
Ann Arbor Human Relations Com-
mission received a statement from
officials of the Ann Arbor News
saying that they "are looking for-
ward to complete elimination of
the use of any qualifying or re-
strictive language in the adver-
tising columns of the News."
These officials, Arthur Gallagher1
and George McCallum, editor-in-M
chief and advertising manager of'
the News respectively, further as-!
sured the Commission that they
are planning to start at once in
educating the users of their ad-
vertising columns "to the end of
eliminating suchadvertising."
The Commission gave its thanks
to the Ann Arbor Direct Action-
Comittee and the local NAACP for{
the parts they played in the effort
to have the News adopt a policy
of prohibiting restrictive language
in its advertising columns.
It also passed unanimously a,
recommendation "that the Ann
Arbor News be commended by the
Commission and informed that the
Commission will watch with in-
terest the progress being made in,
the days ahead."
A further result of last night's
meeting was the acceptance of a
draft of a letter to be sent to the1
Ann Arbor Board of Realtors ex-1
pressing disapproval of a series of
articles which that group had]
placed in the News during Sep-I
tember and October.
These articles were placed in an
effort to arouse opposition to Rule
Nine of the Michigan CorporationI
and Securities Commision which!
prevents realtors from participat-
ing in sales or rentals in which
discriminatory conditions are
specified on the gorunds of race,
color, religion, national origin or
The Commislon said that thej
articles "strired up unnecessary
dissention in the community,
rather than promoting harmony#
and good will," and expressed aI
concern for "the best interest ofj
all the citizens of this community."

Consider Motion
Student Government Council
will also consider motions to es-
tablish a committee on student
rights and to revise the structure
of international activities. Daily
Editor Thomas Hayden, '61, and
Seasonwein are presenting the for-
mer motion. The proposed Com-
mittee on Student Rights would
have three functions: to serve as
a board of grievance, to investi-
gate and seek to correct Univer-
sity policies and practices, and to
prepare a booklet discussing stu-
dent rights and responsibilities.
The motion notes that existing
machinery deals with violations of
student responsibilities, but "com--

protect and to promote the exer-'
cise of student rights does not

Brian Glick, '62, present chair-
man of the International Coordi-
nating Board, will propose that
the board be replaced by three
separate committees: the present
International committee, to con-
centrate on providing serviceto
both foreign and American stu-
dents; an International Week
Committee, to coordinate the
Week'~s activities, nationality
clubs and othernrelevant student
organizations; and an Interna-
tional Relations Committee, to in-
crease person-to-person and small
group contact between Americans
and international students.
The SGC Committee on Edu-
cation and Student Welfare will
seek Council approval of a letter
to be sent to the Literary College
Faculty Curriculum Committee.
"The letter suggests four areas
j to investigate as alternatives to
the idea of comprehensive exams,f
and states generally what such
programs can accomplish," com-
mittee chairman Mike Zimmer-
man, '62, said.
To Study Forms
The forms to be investigated
are independent study programs,
detailed research papers, labora-
tory research projects and senior-
level survey courses.
The committee will also move

De Gaulle
Still Firm
On Stand
PARIS (A) - President Charles
de Gaulle came home last night
from his Algerian tour and an-
nounced he is standing by his
home rule policy for the big North
African territory, despite rioting
there that left 123 dead.
He narrowly missed a new out-
break of rioting by both Algerian
nationalists and 'Frenchmen in
Bone, his takeoff point from Al-
geria. French troops fired on
Frenchmen there for the first
time in five days of violence. Seven
Algerians and two Frenchmen were
"One Policy"
"We have only one policy and
it is necessary to follow it. It is
the good one," the 70-year-old
president told cabinet members
and deputies greeting him at the
At the same time he dispatched
a letter to Louis Joxe, Algerian
affairs minister, saying coopera-
tion between the European and
Moslem communities is essential.
"All that I have just seen and
heard in the course of my inspec-
tion has convinced me of this more
firmly than ever," de Gaulle wrote.
"To assure this cooperation, and
to oppose all whose action tends
to prevent it-this is the policy
of France."
Calls for Review
He sped off to his official resi-
dence behind a motorcade escort
and along streets guarded by more
police. The stubborn leader called
for a full-scale cabinet review
amid reports he plans to fire any
ministers not fully behind his
policies, even though they could
lead to independence for Algeria.
Behind him in Algeria, de Gaulle
had left word for tough treatment
of the leaders in the disorders that
began with anti-de Gaulle riots
by the Europeans and ended in
pro-nationalistriots by the Mos-
lems. Although he never mentioned
the riots while in Algeria, they
are believed to have roused him
to cold anger.
De Gaulle's parting plea to Al-
geria was one foriunderstanding
between Moslems and Europeans.

Proclaim McNamara
Well Fitted for Job;
See New Changes
State officials, members of the
University faculty and members of
the Ann Arbor business commun-
ity all applauded the appointment
of Robert S. McNamara to the
post of Secretary of Defense in
the Kennedy administration.
President-elect John F. Ken-
nedy has made an "outstanding
choice" in picking McNamara for
the position, Gov. G. Mennen
Williams said. This view was also
held by Democratic State Chair-
man Neil Staebler who declared
that McNamara was a man who
would bring a broad vision ot the
problems of defense and economic
Change of Policy
"McNamara's take-over will mark
a change of policy in terms of
defense commitments both here
and abroad," Prof. William R.
Gable of the political science de-
partment said. He expects a less-
ening of inter-service rivalries be-
cause there will probably be "a
better definition of what we want
from each service.
Prof. George A. Peek of the
political science department pre-
dicted that "McNamara will bring
great ability, a new look and fresh
imagination to the post of Secre-
tary of Defense."
Release Stock
Another aspect of the appoint-
ment was brought out by Prof.
Karl A. Lamb of the political sci-
ence department. In explaining the
fact that McNamara will have to
irrevocably give up his stock in
the Ford Motor Co., Prof. Lamb
said that this "points up the need
for a better definition of the term
'conflict of interests'." He said he
hoped Congress would take a new
look at the situation in the com-
ing session.
Members of Alpha Kappa Psi,
business fraternity of which Mc-
Namara is an honorary member,
declared that the new secretary,
who calls himself a "registered Re-
publican," they said, would have
no difficulty in working with the

On Liquor-by-Glass Ruling
The University has adopted a "wait and see" attitude on the
problems which may arise because of the new city ordinance on

"What the actual results of the new law will be is only a matter
of conjecture. Obviously liquor will-be mores available to more students
than is now the case."
Licensees, however, will be more concerned with observing the
law forbidding liquor purchases by minors, Rea predicted. "A very
strict observance of the law is now kept, and I think it will become
