By The Associated Press
Gov. Ronald Reagan denied
through an aide yesterday a re-
port he plans to announce his
candidacy for president during a
nationwide television broadcast
Q July 21.
ah"It's phony," said Lyn Nofziger,
the communications director and
chief political adviser on the Rea

"I'll tell you positively it isn t
going' to happen," he said.
What will be shown on the tele

MSU

approves

tuition increase
Establish equal opportunity group,
Center for Race and Urban affairs
From Wire Service Reports
Michigan State University's Board of Trustees yesterday
approved a tuition increase, the creation of a Center for Race
and Urban Affairs and the establishment of a Committee
for Equal Opportunity.
A fee increase of $5 to $15 per quarter was announced
for Michigan residents on a sliding scale tuition plan for
undergraduates. Non-residents will pay from $4 to $20'more
per quarter.
"We have no choice but to raise fees, because the Legisla-
ture fell short of appropriating sufficient money to meet our
needs," Don Stevens, chair- "
man of the Board of Trustees
said yesterday.

Organizing the curriculum
Free school sets up
plans for courses*
By ANN MUNSTER
Some 150 people met in the UGLI multipurpose room
last night for the first organizational meeting of Ann Arbor's
"Free School," an independent group which plans to create
their own courses and workshops.
Studies planned by the school include a workshop in
creative writing to be taught by an assistant editor of Over-
flow magazine, a course on "Marxism and Marcuse," and
another on "jazz, the blues, and the American freak scene."
About half the courses are political in nature. Marcuse,

consisted of brief ideological de-

of small groups to plan the for-
mat of courses and make tentative
arrangements for meetings.

kept Soviet Ambassador Vale-

top diplomats of Britain,
France, Yugoslavia, India, Can-
ada and others in Paris.
Thuy has been reported keep-
ing close contacts with Com-
munist diplomats. North Viet-
namese authorities are in fre-
quent touch ,with the French
Foreign Office. The Soviet Un-
ion and France have been men-
tioned most often by American
diplomats as possible go-be-
tweens.
So far French and Soviet au-
thorities apparently have
judged that the time for inter-
vention was not ripe.
The difficulty for the diplo-
mats is that the military opera-
tions in Vietnam are still the
decisive field. North Vietnam
has been striving for a victory
that would give it the upper
hand in Paris. The United
States has been trying to de-
feat this strategy while seeking
an agreemeOt here that would
reduce the level of the war.
The fact that the talks now
appear to be mired in rhetoric
may increase pressure on both
i Hanoi and Washington tofind
some way to get them moving
again.
The 12th session of the Paris
talks was held Wednesday.
Thuy demanded once more that
the United States stop attack-
ing the North unconditionally,
and once more Harriman de-
manded reciprocity.
The highlight of the session
was a point made by Thuy with
overtones in U.S. domestic poli-
tics.
He charged U.S. authorities
were trying to please American
public opinion for political pur-
poses by circulating rumors of
progress in the talks-progress
which he denied. Harriman said
he still saw "straws in the
wind" for hope.

Thuy's tactic has been to
keep the pressure of peace-
hungry public opinion on the
United States to end the rest
of the bombing. Unless the
bombing ends, he says, the
talks will fail and the United
States will be to blame.
In the judgment of U.S. au-
thorities, the North Vietnam-
ese are still intent on winning
the war in South Vietnam. Fail-
ing that, they want to go into
serious negotiations from a
rposition of military strength.
They would like to upset the
South Vietnamese government,
a major reason they have con-
centrated their attacks and
threats against Saigon since
the talks began.
The Americans are also con-
vinced that North Vietnam does
not want to break off the meet-
ings here. As long as they con-
tinue, in fact, both sides get
some credit from peacedadvo-
cates for keeping in contact.
In a perspective longer than
that of the week-to-week ses-
sions, the apathetic motion of
the talks and their lack of for-
ward momentum may very well
generate their own force for
forward movement in the
weeks ahead.

MSU received $62.3 million, $8
million less than requestedfrom
the Legislature. The fee increases
are expected to raise approximate-
ly $1,500,000 in the 1968-69 level.
"We're fortunate to now have
a fee schedule based on ability to
pay," Stevens added. "When we
are forced to raise fees, we can
keep the burden down on families
least able to pay."
The sliding scale, adopted by
MSU last year, sets fees in propor-
tion to parents' incomes. Univer-
sity President Robben W. Fleming
has said the University should
consider a fee system similar to
Michigan State's.,
Last year more than 14,000 stu-.
dents at the East Lansing and
Oakland campuses qualified for a
lower tuition rate during the fall
term than they would have paid
under a flat-rate tuition hike.
In the fall, a $118 quarterly fee
for resident students whose fam4
Ily income is under $11,800 goes
to $123 per quarter for students
whose family income is under
,$12,300 per year.
At the same time, MSU's newly
created Center for Race and Ur-
ban Affairs and Committee on
Equal Opportunity will be work-
ing to get more disadvantaged and
black students at the university.
As outlined in a committee re-
port, the center is to "work with
the white community to promote
a better understanding of the to-
tal situation involving the Negro."
But the center will also work
to develop new curricula dealing
with racial and urban affairs and
take steps to recruit the disad-
vantaged, especially blacks.'
George M. Johnson, chairman
of the Committee on Equal Op-
portunity and Hannah's assistant
for equal opportunity programs,
said he hopes his committee will
begin work this slimmer "to in-
crease the number of Negroes

on NMay,
The Board of Trustees of Mich-
igan State University yesterday
postponed action regarding Philip
J. May, vice-president for business
and finance, who was ruled in
conflict of interest last June by
the state attorney general.
"Since individual trustees ap-
pear to hold widely divergent
views," foirmal action regarding
May has been deferred until the
board's September meeting, MSU
President John A. Hannah said.
CONFLICT
Trustee C. Allen Harlan, who is
himself under investigation by the
attorney general, has called for
May's resignation or firing. But
Don Stevens, chairman of the
board, has voiced "emphatic" dis-
agreement with Harlan.
Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley's legal
opinion was critical, of May's in-
terest in the financing, construe-
tion and leasing bf an office
building in Lansing, whose princi-
pal tenant is International Bui
ness Machines.
The building was constructed by
the Philip Jesse Co. whose major
stockhclder is May's wife.
IBM LEASE
MSU leased $494,437 in services
from IBM during 1967.
Dep. Atty: Gen. Leon Cohan
said last June either May must
step down or divest himself of the
financial interests which rebre-
sent a conflict.
No criminal proceedings against
May are presently planned, Cohan
added at that time.
Hannah said May and his wife
are giving "serious consideration"
to the suggestion that Mrs. May
divest herself of the conflicting
interests.
But Rep. Jack Faxon (D-De-
troit), who requested Kelley's
opinion last November following
a Daily story revealing May's con-
flict, predicted in June that May
would resign after studying Kel-
ley's report.
MAY AWAY' -
May, on sabbatical leave
through August, did not attend
the board's meeting Wednesday.
But Hannah explained May has
suggested his leave be continued
beyond September 1, without pay.
Chief fiiancial officer at MSU
for more than 20 years, May has
been on' leave since March 1 to
study financial practices at other
schools.
Ralph Calder and Associates, an
architecture firm described as the
principal architect 'of MSU de-
signed the building.
It was constructed by three
contractors who have done nearly
$10 million in business' with MSU
during the past ten years.

Association should be the repre-
sentatives of the county sheriff's
deputies in labor bargaining.
The decision, which ruled out
the newly formed Sheriff's Deputy
Bargaining Association as a bar-
gaining agent, was reached after
a unique two-day "peace table"
conference.
The session was proposed by
SLMB examiner Bert H. Wicking,
who was called in to hold a twin
hearing to decide the representa-
tion dispute and, investigate
charges of unfair labor practices
by County Sheriff Douglas J.
Harvey.
Harvey has been charged with
violating the Hutchinson Act by
discriminating against deputies
William Stander and Fred Pos-
till for their union activities.
Postill and Stander are key of-
ficers in the Washtenaw County
Deputy Association. Both men'
were fired by Harvey last Decem-
ber, then reinstated after a SLMB
* examination. Postill was fired
again in May for what Harvey
termed "insubordination."
Wicking noted that both organ-
izations were "inappropriate" as
bargaining agents because they
have on their membership lists
men in command posts - ser-
a geants and corporals - who in
the course of duty are often su-
pervisors over deputies.
"They cannot hold the role of
job supervisor over men who be-
long to the same bargaining unit,"
he said.
Wicking ruled that the Deputy
0 Association should be the depu-

Kerwitz, interviewed by tele-
phone, said he didn't know how,
the story originated.
"They didn't get it from us," hej
said.
The money for the show, he
added, wasecollected "mainly by
individuals and Reagan booster
groups in all of the states. The
governor is aware of our plans to
show this film." "I wish we had
$300,000 (the reputed cost), to
spend on television," erwitz said.
Reagan acknowledged 'at his
news conference Tuesday he knew
the film was scheduled.
"I can't help but be proud of
the fact that they want to do this
....if somebody wants to play
it for the country, fine," Reagan
said.
Although Reagan is not a de-
clared candidate, Kerwitz said,
"I think you have to assume he
is a candidate. Our feeling over
the last month or so is that dele-
gates are considering him as one
alternative."

'U' FAILUREI
"Even if it quit all governmentt
advising and government con-
tracts, its failure would still be t
complete," he continued. "Be-
cause this is not the basic prob-
lem.'"
Weeks launched into a criti-
cism of the hierarchical structure{
of the traditional university edu-
cational system, which he blamed
for its utter inability to satisfyt
the intellectual needs of the stu-
dents.£
The school is a loose conglom-
eration of students banded to-
gether to pursue interests not
satisfied through regular univer-
sity course offerings, its leaders
explain.
BORED FRUSTRATION
Not everyone last night was
happy with the school's progress
which appeared to them more as;
an attempt to stir people from
their summer relaxation, or bored
frustration by starting interest-
ing discussion groups.
"The problem is that most of
the courses, whether there on
mysticism, Chinese cooking, or
Marcuse, are catering to a radical
clientele," one prospective mem-
ber of the school pointed out.
"The people in this room need a,
free university less than anyone
in Ann Arbor."
PLACID STUDENTS
"We must also try to get to the
kind of student who sits placidly
in English 123 or introductory
economics." he continued. "And

Known to all as Juicy Lucy and to an affectionate few as Mom,
Miss Kennedy doubles as Daily personnel director and editor of the

a few short weeks and will serve as the backbone of our first free

We caught Juicy as she rode up to the Student Publications
Building on her Irish thoroughbred. She smiled as she dismounted.
"Hi, boys," she 'quipped gaiay, "I brought you some cookies and,
milk to help you through the ay. Energy counts, you know!" she
added.
We chuckled for her benefit and proceeded to quiz her on her
views of the University, The Daily and life in general.
"Eat your cookies, now," Mom began, "and I'll tell you all about it."
We settled back in our Steelcase chairs and awaited the word.

The St. John Co. had originally

lution allowing the St. John Co.
to cut half hourly service part of
the day because of the shortage
of drivers.
The St. John Co. will also pro-
vide school bus service, but Rob-
bins said details had not yet been
determined. School bus routes
may be integrated into regular
routes, he added.
