Western diplomats detained
WARSAW ON' - Western military attaches "positively
identified" Soviet troops heading through Poland yesterday
n the direction of Czechoslovakia, informed sources reported
ast night. This followed a Polish Communist party statement
demanding that anti-Communist trends in Czechoslovakia be
"forcibly silenced."
The attaches indicated the troops were heading west-
ward, south of the city of Krakow, about 45 miles from the
Czechoslovak border.
The Poles, angered by Czechoslovakia's free-swinging
press which had accused the Gomulka regime of anti-Semit-
ism, produced a unified barrage in Warsaw's newspapers

The House Appropriations
Committee yesterday reported to
the floor a bill recommending re-
storation of $2.3 million to the

Tn March, the Senate passed a
bill which would provide 861.3
million. The House committee's
bill asks for a $63.6 million ap-
The bill now must be acted'
upon by the House and returned
to the Senate for concurrence.
The House bill still includes a
large cut from the University's
original request of $75.6 million
and is substantially lower than
Gov. George Romney's $64.7 pil-
lion 'recommendation.
University Executive Vice Pres-
ident Marvin Niehuss indicated he
is fairly pleased with the increase.
"Starting wheire we were," he
said. "the House committee did
as well as could be expected."
The increase recommend-ed by
the committee, Niehuss said, in-
cludes $1.8 million which was cut
from the bill by the Senate dgue
to an error in calculation.
Chairman of the Senate Appro-

Beadle (R-St. Clair) declined
comment on the bill, but said
that if there is a mistake in the
figures used by the Senate, these
will be recognized and rectified.
In addition, the House com-
mittee cut a section from the bill
requiring schools with less than
20 per cent out-of-state enroll-

number of non-Michigan students.

Strike stymies
Ad building
So close and yet so far away.
The new Administration Building is only two weeks short
of completion, but strikes by the Communications Workers
of America, Ann Arbor local, and Carpenters local 512 are hold-
ing up the occupancy dalle indefinitely.
The situation is complicated by the impending moves of the
sociology, geography, and journalism departments and the
literary college deans' offices into the present administration
building. These changes are contingent on the vacating of office
space in the present administration building scheduled to' move
into the new building.
Paul Spradlin, literary college administrative assistant says
"We need to get things going as soon as possible. It is imperative
that we move into the old building before the beginning of the
fall semester." Spradlin is in charge of directing the move into
the present building, which will be called the Literature, Science
and the Arts Building.
"If we can't make the fall date, we will have to go with
a temporary plan that could cause major problems," Spradlin
adds. He is going on the assumption that the fall date will be
reached with several weeks. Moving during the semester would
be "chaotic," he says.
The original completion date for the $2.5 million building
was mid-May, and would have been reached -had it not been
for the strikes says John Weidenbach, Director of Plant Exten-
sion. A revised date has not been set due to the uncertainty of1
the labor situation. The building cannot be occupied without
telephone service, and some floor covering remains to be installed
by the carpenters, says Weidenbach.
"We will be able to move into most of the building two
weeks after the telephone installers go back to work," he ex-
plained, but the 'few areas in the building that require floor
covering installation will not be ready for occupancy until the
carpenters go back to work.
lhe overall scheme of the literary college move to their
new building has been one of consolidation of departmental

Following two days of picket-
ing, 30 Roosevelt students re-
mained outside of Weil's office
Tuesday night. Twenty-three of
the students were later arrested.
Weil, who stayed away from
the campus during the Wednes-
day incident, termed the students
"willful lawbreakers" and said
the administrative council had no
choice but to call the police.
The students, arrested on tres-
passing charges and each held
on $250 bond, were released yes-
Opposing threatened student
suspensions, the faculty has or-
ganized a committee to register
its disapproval with administra-
tion tactics.
The student said, "Lynd is the
kind of professor we've always
had here." During the McCarthy
era, he continued, several pro-I
fessors spoke out openly and were
consequently investigated along
with the school. These professors,
he claimed, were "even worse
than Lynd."
In recent years, however, aca-
demic freedom has been stifled. As
a result, the Roosevelt student
said, many teachers have left like
"rats deserting a sinking ship."
Prof. Shaw Livermore, Jr., of
University's history department,
said it is hard "to separate Lynd
the historian and Lynd the ac-
tivist." Livermore contended he
is "a very presentable character
and a very gentlemanly guy."
However, Livermore added, Lynd
presents potential difficulty since
he is "a very insistent activist. It
is absolutely inevitable he's go-
ing to cause trouble. There are
always people who will say 'What
the hell you got a guy like that
working for you.'"
Asked about Weil's ad hominem

However, according to Koen-

less. He cites a 1965 survey col-

that only 25 per cent of those
