According to the agenda pre-
ared by the Executive Committee,

inwein, '61, that would form a
unmittee to endorse and aid the

ne Council in a committee of the
hole. Under this procedure, dis-

cussion is allowed but the only
motions that are in order are those
to either extend or end the com-

[eW Soviet Student Arrives
In Cultural Exchange Plan
By LINDA REISTMAN
Braving the confusion of international red tape and a serious
understanding in course selection, Vallei Postunov became the
versity's third exchange student from the U.S.S.R. four days
Vallei became a part of the cultural exchange program between
United States and Russia last February. The Science Research
incl, ,governing body of the Leningrad Shipbuilding Institute,
re Vallei did his undergraduate work, and where he is now an

ecpnomic boycott by their white
communities since they registered
to vote in the 1960 national elec-
tion.
Carol Cohen, '64, co-chairman
of the project for Voice political
party, announced that the local
drive will begin immediately. Let-
ters are being sent to all housing
units, campus organizations,
,church groups, and civic organiza-
tions explaining the drive and
asking both for endorsement and
contributions.
Collection boxes for food and
clothing will be placed in central
campus locations. Money and cor-
respondence will be handled
through Tennessee Campaign, Apt.

Permit Extension
Miss Cohen said "Voice hopes
to make the necessary arrange-
ments to permit extension of the
collection to housing units and the
city of Ann Arbor."
"We cannot solve the problem in
Tennessee, but we can help
through this drive. We hope the
response is great enough to send
more than one truckload of food
and supplies," Miss Cohen said.

Suggests Bill
To End Bias'
WASHINGTON (AP)-The Presi-
dent's Committee on Government
Contracts yesterday called for leg-
islation to set up a permanent
committee with power to elimi-
nate racial discrimination wher-
ever federal funds are involved.
The committee, headed by Vice-
President Richard M. Nixon, vis-
ited the White House to present
its final report.
The report said discrimination
is America's "most destructive so-
cial and economic problem," and
recommended expansion of the
committee's scope of activity and
authority to extend the govern-
ment's policy of equal job oppor-
tunities into new areas.
Makes lRecommendations
The committee recommended
the federal government extend the
principle of equal opportunity to:
1) Grant-in-aid programs with
particular reference to those in-
volving federal funds in education,
training, recruitment or referral.
2) Programs where federal sub-,
sidies are involved in housing.
3) Agreements under which the'
government contributes funds to
state and local programs.
The committee said the rela-
tionship of housing to economic
deprivation of some minority
group members is an increasing
problem. Frequently, the distanceI
from suburban plants to housing'
available to minority group mem-
bers, particularly Negroes, causes
commuting problems, which, in ef-
fect, create 'an employment bar-
rier, the committee said.
Issues Statement
President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er issued a statement in which he
said he urgently called the atten-
tion of every American to the
committee recommendations.
"~These recommendations, if act-
ed upon, will bring our people
closer to the great goal of full
equality of opportunity," Eisen-
hower said.
Eisenhower added that the com-
mittee has served the nation well
and has had a most successful ex-
perience in promoting employment
equality on government jobs,
Hemingway's
Illness Called
Hypertension
ROCHESTER, Minn. (A)-Nov-7
elist Ernest Hemingway's ailmentl
was described as hypertension by1
a spokesman yesterday at the1
Mayo Clinic, where the 62-year-
old author has been under treat-
ment since Nov. 30.'
Hemingway is to be released
within the next two weeks. His1
condition is considered satisfac-

is credit.
Planned Study
Vallei planned to take advanced
study in the field of Naval Archi-
tecture at the University of Penn-
sylvania as part of the exchange
plan. Arriving in Philadelphia
last October, he discovered that
only a general course in mechani-
cal designs was offered at this
school.
He then asked permission to
transfer to another American uni-
versity which offered a program in
naval architecture. Due to the
strained political relations of
both countries, his request was not
granted until a few weeks ago.
"This University has a well-
known naval, architecture depart-
ment, and I'm- happy that I have
the opportunity to study here," he
said.
To Begin Semester
Vallei will begin class in Feb-
ruary and intends to stay until
June. However he will spend much
of this time reading American
scientific publications and dis-
cussing his subject with Univer-
sity professors. "I can learn much
more on a personal basis becausej
of the specialized nature of my
field,"he commented.
Course in this field are on the
same level of knowledge in the
two countries, Vallei noted. "The
general mechanics course in which
I was originally enrolled at the
University of Pennsylvania was
very much the same as the one I
taught at Leningrad," he ob-
served.
Upon completion of his course
of study Vallei plans to return to
his wife and daughter in Lenin-
grad where he will continue teach-
ing at the Institute.
SGC To Ask
Clarification
On Lectures
Student Government Council
voted without dissent early this
morning to send a questionnaire
to the University Committee on
Lectures asking for clarification
of certain sections of By-law 8.11,
which constitutes the University's
restriction of outside speakers.
The questionnaire will ask how
the Committee judges the nature
of a speech, when this judgment
is made, and what criteria are
used for such determination. It
will question whether the Com-
mittee considers "affiliation with
the Communist party or any other
political group is evidence enough
to prevent the delivery of a lec-
ture."
The Council will ask how the
committee interprets a passage
concerning prohibition of ad-
dresses "which urge the destruc-
tion or modification of our form
of government by violence or oth-
er unlawful methods, or which
justifv or advocate conduct vio-

By 3UDITH OPPENHEIM
James Seder, '61, chairman of
the Student Government Council
Committee on Membership in Stu-
dent Organizations, yesterday as-
sured members of the Panhellenic
Association that the committee is
"not anti-Greek."
Panhel President Barbara Green-
berg, '61, invited the committee to
meet with the association to clar-
ify any questions Panhel members
might have.
Speaking for the committee,
Sedvr began by explaining that
its main purpose is facilitating
execution of the SGC ruling that
no student organization may deny
membership on the grounds of
race, religion, creed, national
origin or ancestry.
Several questions pertained to
the membership clauses and
statements on interpretation which
each sorority and fraternity must
file with the Vice-President for
Student Affairs. Asst. Dean of Men
John Bingley said SGC itself is
interested only in collecting the
information. Any preliminary
checking by SGC will be strictly
to ascertain that everything speci-
fied has been submitted.
At the present time fraternity
and sorority constitutions are on
file in the offices of the Dean of
Men and Dean of Women in ac-
cordance with a 1949 Student
Affairs Committee ruling. No one
has access to these constitutions
except the Deans, Miss Greenberg
said. The new requirement for
filing membership clauses and in-
terpretations will make filing of
entire constitutions with the Deans
unnecessary from now on.
Miss Greenberg added that since
SGC assumes complete statements
from sororities will be submitted,
"in good faith," there will cer-
tainly be no cross-checking to
see whether they are in agreement
with previously-filed constitutions.
To questions pertaining to what
the committee would do in specific
instances where violations might
be charged, the members fre-

LANSING (Agp-Republicans as-
sumed control of both houses to-
day as state legislators assembled
in a friendly atmosphere to open
the 1961 session.
None of the bitterness that
marred the 1959 and 1960 session
was evident, although the stage
was set for future wrangling with
the submission of two controver-
sial civil rights bills,
Democratic Gov. John B.
Swainson was greeted with back-
slaps and handshakes by Repub-
lican senators when he strolled in-
to the Senate chamber to greet
former colleagues. He served in
the upper chamber six years, two
as Lieutenant Governor and Sen-
ate President.
Selection Feud
Republicans began immediate-
ly to feud among themselves over
the selection of a chairman of
the important Senate business
committee, which screens the
"Governor's appointments.
The conservative element ap-
parently won a skirmish with the
liberal GOP element when Sen.
Charles F. Feenstra of Grand
Rapids emerged as the unofficial
choice.
Threatened Resignation
Sen. Frank D. Beadle, GOP cau-
cus chairman, was reliably re-
ported to have walked out of a
meeting of GOP committee mem-
bers, threatening to quit his post
if his choice for chairmanship,
Sen. John Fitzgerald of Grand
Ledge, was rejected.
Beadle frequently warred with
Senate conservatives during the
last two terms and several times
threatened to resign when they
bucked his leadership.
Giv e Group
Added Duty
Student Government Council
approved a motion granting Cin-
ema Guild the responsibility of
advising the SGC calendaring
committee as to the value of cal-
endaring any motion picture
shown on campus not connected
with a course last night,
Cinema Guild's previous respon-
sibilities were twofold: to present
high quality films at reasonable
prices and to give campus or-
ganizations an opportunity to
sponsor films and receive a por-
tion of the profits.
