GEORGIA PETITION-Some of the 350 University of Georgia instructors who signed it look over
copies of a petition condemning Wednesday night's riot and asking that the two Negro students sus-
pended in its wake be reinstated. A Federal judge yesterday ordered the university to readmit the
students before 8 a.m. Monday.
njunction Reinstates Negroes

MACON, Ga. (M')-- A Federal
judge told the University of Geor-
gia yesterday to readmit two Ne-
gro students it suspended after
campus rioting and sternly warn-
ed that no action must be taken
to expel them.
Judge W. A. Bootle restrained
all state officials having any con-
nection with the school or the
university officials themselves
from again suspending Charlayne
A. Hunter or Hamilton E. Holmes
or dismissing them.
Bootle ruled that the universi-
ty's "order of withdrawal or sus-

pension is hereby terminated by
8 a.m. Jan. 16." By holding up the
revocation until that hour, the
school officials could delay the
Negroes' return to class until Mon-
day instead of today.
To Prevent Repetition
The injunction aganist another
suspension or expulsion provided
that such action could not be
taken "on the grounds that the
same is necessary for their per-
sonal safety because of mob vio-
lence on the campus."
The decision held that law and
order had not broken down in the

Senate Endorses Ribicoff;
F ..
Further Positions Filled
WASHINGTON M -- Gov. Abraham A. Ribicoff of Connecticut
won strong bipartisan endorsement before the Senate finance com-
mittee yesterday, and its chairman predicted he would be confirmed
unanimously by the Senate for his cabinet post.
Chairman Harry F. Byrd (D-Va) said he regarded Ribicoff as
"one of the ablest appointments made to the cabinet in a long time."
Byrd told newsmen he also believed that Douglas Dillon would
have no trouble in winning confirmation as Secretary of the
Organizes State Department
President-elect John F. Kennedy and Dean Rusk, who will be
his Secretary of State, yesterday practically completed the organiza-

university town of 20,000 and said
the court did not find that author-
ities are unable to maintain order
at the school.
Referring to the violent demon-
strations on campus a few hours
after Miss Hunter and Holmes
went through their first classes
Wednesday, Bootle said consti-
tutional rights are not to be sus-
pended by violence nor can Fed-
eral court orders be thwarted by
Will Uphold Ruling
University President 0. C. Ad-
erhold said after the ruling, "it
will be the purpose of the Univer-
sity of Georgia to carry out the
orders of the court."
He also expressed confidence
that "public opinion and the full
resources of the state will move
to prohibit the commission of
violence by outsiders whose illegal
acts endanger life and property."
IAthens police said eight of those
arrested during Wednesdaynight's
rioting were members of the Ku
Klux Klan.
To Avoid Violence
Dean of Students Joseph Wil-
liams, who issued orders suspend-
ing the two Negroes, said univer-
sity officials would make every
effort to prevent gatherings of
students which might lead to vio-
However, he told a news confer-
ence the university had received
no word about when Miss Hunter
and Holmes planned to seek re-
admission. "I assume they will be
Notified of the decision by the
Associated Press, Miss Hunter said
she was "very pleased and all set
to go back to the University of
Georgia." She said she and
Holmes were "quite hopeful that
there will not be another demon-
stration like Wednesday night's."
At Atlanta, Gov. Ernest Van-'
diver said that law enforcement
officers of great experience de-
scribe the situation at the univer-'
sity as a "tinder box condition"
and that Bootle "took action with-
out regard to the consequences."

IST Plans
Of Research
Swainson Proposes
More State Support
The Institute of Scienge and
Technology plans an overall ex-
pansion program, particularly in
the economic development pro-
gran with which it aids Michi-
gan's industry, IST Director
Joseph A. Boyd said Yesterday.
His statement followed Gov.
Swainsop's speech to the Legis-
lature yesterday, in which the
governor requested an increase in
the operating funds for the In-
Swainson has not yet submitted
a formal budget request to the
Legislature, however.
IST would use an increase in
state funds to expand research
programs in its present 15 divi-
sions, but plans no increase in the
number of divisions, Prof. Boyd
(of the electrical engineering de-
partment) said.
Expand Outside Work
IST plans to expand the amount
of work done under Institute aus-
pices at other state colleges and
universities, and to create a num-
ber of graduate fellowships for
students to use at any state uni-
versities, Prof. Boyd said.
Added funds would also serve
to increase federal and private
support to research at the In-
stitute, Prof. Boyd said, noting
that many projects which receive
federal aid require original funds
to start them before they receive
One of the primary aims ex-
pressed by the Legislature when
it passed the bill creating the In-
stitute was that it work to aid
industry in the state, and Prof.
Boyd listed increased work in this
area among the primary aims of
the Institute.
$1.25 million Asked
The University budget request
submitted to state officials this
year included $1.25 million operat-
ing funds specifically for ISF.
During the present fiscal year,
the Legislature appropriated no
separate funds for the Institute,
but increased the University's
general appropriation instead,
Vice-President for Research Ralph
A. Sawyer noted.
Prof. Boyd said that IST had
received about $700,000 out of
these funds so far. During the
preceding fiscal year, IST did re-
ceive a separate operating budget
of about $500,000, Prof. poyd said.
Asks Scholarship Program
The governor's address to the
Legislature also included a pro-
posal for state scholarships for
higher education, the first year
of which could include 50 scholar-
ships for $1,000 each.
These would be the first scholar-
ships awarded in Michigan by the
state directly, rather than through
one of its universities or colleges,
Vice-President and Dean of Facul-
ties Marvin L. Niejhuss pointed
However, he noted, several other
states, notably New York, already
have programs of state-wide
Among Largest Grants
Ivan W. Parker, assistant dean
of men and director of the Uni-
versity scholarship program ex-
plained that these scholarships
would be among the largest grant-
ed by Michigan institutions.
Other points in Swainson's pro-
posals to the Legislature included
a request for a study of the edu-
cational needs of migrant workers'
children, an economic program to
create more jobs in the state and

lower its unemployment and ex-
pansion of the medical care pro-
gram for the aged.

Russian Exchange Student
Views America, Americans

"Many Americans feel an ani-
mosity towards the Russian people
and picture them as cruel," Lev
Kostikov, Grad., a Russian ex-
change student from Moscow said.
When he met Americans, Kos-
tikov said he felt an instant rap-
port with them. He explained that
there were many similarities be-
tween Americans and Russians.
Both peoples have a wonderful
love for life, which is shown in
their affection for children.
Visited Families
Kostikov has visited American
families in Birmingham and Battle
Creek. The only unpleasant ex-
perience he has had with an
American was when he moved
into an apartment after leaving
South Quadrangle.
"South Quad was too noisy and
there were too many young
people," he said. He rented an
apartment, signed his lease, and
paid his rent.
"When I moved in there, the
landlord had not made any of
the improvements he had promis-
ed." Kostikov then moved to West
Quadrangle which he says he en-
Joys very much.

Kostikov finds that there are
more serious students in Russian
universities than in American
universities due to the nature of
the examination policy.
No Tests
"In Russia, a university stu-
dent has no tests during the se-
mester. He is given nine examina-
tions at the end of the semester,
and if he fails three, he must
leave." However, if the adminis-
tration knows that the student is
serious about his studies, he may
be given a second chance.
Professors Respected
"The professors are more re-
spected in my country," Kostikov
said. When a professor enters the
room, all the students rise and re-
main standing until the professor
acknowledges them.
To maintain an orderly lecture,
no questions are asked during the
lecture. If a person is late to
class, he is not allowed to enter
the classroom because this would
distract from the subject.
"There is no smoking in class
either, because this prevents the
student from thinking clearly,"
Kostikov added.
