An amendment which would strengthen Ann Arbor's fair hous-

Wendell E. Hulcher announced at last night's City Council meeting.
Vice-President for Student Affairs James A. Lewis sent a letter
to Hulcher dated Jan. 20 in which he stated that Chapter 112, sec-
tion 9.156 in the ordinance "for all practical purposes . . . exempts all
rooming units from coverage by the ordinance." The section in ques-

Johnson Sends Congress
Medical Care Package
WASHINGTON (P)-President Lyndon B. Johnson proposed to Con-
gress yesterday what he called "a vigorous and many-sided attack
on our most serious health problems." And he set a goal of enabling
each American to enjoy the benefits of modern medical knowledge.
.Johnson led off by renewing the Kennedy Administration's pro-
posal for medical insurance for the elderly under the Social Security
program. He said "old age can be a dark corridor of fear" for older


Cain, To Stay
With Office
Prof. Stanley A. Cain of the
botany department and the nat-
ural resources school yesterday re-
ported to Gov. George Romney
that he had reconsidered his ear-
lier resignation from his post as
chairman of the Michigan Con-
servation Commission.
In reply, a governor's aide con-
veyed Romney's "pleasure that
Prof. Cain had decided to stay on."
Prof. Cain had planned to leave
the commission without serving
out his sixth year, to spend his
upcoming sabbatical leave from
the University as chairman of a
National Academy of Science com-
mittee formulating plans for an
International Biological Program.
Prof. Cain explaine.3 that the
major factor in changing his mind
was the present process of reor-
ganizing the conservation depart-
"The department is about half
reorganized right now. Under the
circumstances, I felt a responsibil-
ity for participating in the re-
novating and for seeing it through
to the end," he said.
Prof. Cain therefore informed
Romney that he would remain as
a member of the commission and
come to most of its meetings, even
assuming the cost of transporta-
tion to and from Washington him-
self if necessary.

schools and expansion of others,
and a federal scholarship program
for nurses-all designed to in-
crease the total of nurses from the
present 550,000 to 680,000 by 1970.
Not Satisfied
At the outset of his message, the
President said, "The American
pe)l1e are not satisfied with bet-
ter-than-average health. As a na-
tio, they want, they need, and
thoy can afford the best of health
-not just for those of comfortable
means, but for all our citizens, old

health services.

Denies Interest
In Campaign
For Governor
Former Gov. John B. Swainson
yesterday squelched speculation
that he will reverse himself and
run in the Democratic primary for
his old job.
He said there is "no chance" he
will reconsider his Dec. 28 decision
to stay out of any race at least un-
til 1966.
Democratic party sources said
they had been confused by reports
of a Swainson press conference
Friday at Traverse City which in-
dicated he might change his mind
if his new legs were comfortable.
But Swainson said flatly today:
"No, I made my announcement
Dec. 28. I don't anticipate any-
thing that will change my mind.
There's no chance that I will run.
"The report I might change my
mind was a misunderstanding of
my answer to an iffy question."
Swainson expressed an interest
in being President Lyndon B.
Johnson's campaign manager for
Michigan, but such an invitation
has not yet been issued from the
Democratic National Committee.
Democratic leaders in Michigan
say that Swainson's appointment
to run the Johnson campaign had
been discussed by the national

TAIPEI, Formosa (P)-Nation-
alist China broke off diplomatic
relations with France yesterday in
retaliation for President Charles
he Gaulle's recognition of Red
"This action by the French gov-
ernment has damaged beyond re-
pair the existing relations be-
tween the Republic of China and
France," the foreign ministry said
in announcing the rupture of re-
The foreign ministry statement,
issued after a three-hour emer-
gency cabinet meeting, said "the
government of the, Republic of
China finds such action no longer
tolerable and has therefore decid-
ed to sever diplomatic relations
with the French government as of
Feb. 10."
It said the cabinet acted after
being notified Monday that Paris
and Peking were exchanging
charge d'affaires in line with
France's announcement Jan. 27
that it was recognizing Red China.
The Taipei government said it
had recalled its embassy staff from
Paris, disrupting de Gaulle's in-
tention to maintain relations with
Peking and Taipei under a "two
Chinas" policy that the Commu-
nists and nationalists both op-
pose. Each claims to be only true
government of China.
De Gaulle said at a news confer-
ence Jan. 31 that France is rec-
ognizing the Peking regime be-
cause "it sees the world as it is."
At the same time he said France
had no intention of severing re-
lations with the Taipei govern-
ment on the Nationalist strong-
hold of Formosa.a
The Nationalist action extricat-
ed de Gaulle from an embarras-
sing diplomatic spot since Peking
had demanded that France break
with Taipei when it establishes
relations with Red China.

Iraq Calls
Cease Fire
BEIRUT, Lebanon W) - The
government of Iraq yesterday an-
nounced it has reached an agree-
ment with the Kurdish rebels end-
ing more than two years of guer-
rilla warfare in the Northern Ira-
qi mountains.
Baghdad Radio said Mustafa
Barzani, leader of the Kurdish
uprising, has ordered a cease-fire
and told his fighters to return to
their homes.
In return, according to the ra-
dio, Iraqi President Abdul Salam
Aref has "endorsed national
rights" for the Kurds.
The radio said the agreement
had been reached after one week's
negotiations between rebel lead-
ers and a government reconcilia-
tion committee.
Aref has agreed, according to
the announcement, that "Kurdish
rights" will be safeguarded in the
Iraqi Republic's constitution. The
government further has agreed to
release all captive rebels, return
seized Kurdish assets to their own-
ers and begin in the near future
"reconstruction of the North."
A settlement now-if genuine-
would remove one great unsettling
factor for Iraq's present regime
and permit it to get on with its
manifold other problems.
The government radio made it
appear that settlement was defi-
nite. Barzani himself, however, did
not appear on the air, although
the statement calling for the cease
fire was attributed to him.
The radio did not define the
exact terms of the supposed set-
tlement. Presumably it allowed
for some form of Kurdish self-
rule within the framework of the
Iraqi Republic. No mention was
made of oil revenues or specifical-
ly of the all Kurdish security force
in the Kurdish area. The govern-
ment pledged, however, to return
local administrations to the Kurds
and "to take necessary measures
to guarantee peace and stability."

fight to modify the bill, voted

Neil Staebler (D-Mich) voted
Johnson issued a statement
praising the months of hard work
"by men of good will in both par-
ties" in bringing about "over-
whelming passage" of the bill.
Taking cognizance of the uphill
fight that the bill will have in
the Senate, Johnson said "I hope
the same spirit of non-partisan-
ship will prevail there to assure
passage of this bill guaranteeing
the fundamental rights of all
The House action, "coupled with
the passage of the tax bill by the
Senate during the past week is tes-
timony to how the Congress can
act effectively to meet the issues
facing our country," Johnson said.
Coalition Successful
A coalition put together by the
House Democratic and Republican
leaders drove the bill past un-
yielding but outmanned Southern-
ers, chopping off debate to speed
the final vote.
Although the final roll call
came just before 8 p.m., the battle
to get a strong bill through the
House was won in the early after-
noon when the House completed
action on the section aimed at
ending job discrimination against
Negroes, the last major section in
the bill.
Accept Amendment
Just before the final vote the
bill's supporters accepted an
amendment by Rep. Robert T.
Ashmore (D-SC) adding a new
section that would create a com-
munity relations service to -seek
voluntary compliance in racial dis-
Besides making it unlawful for
employers or labor unions to dis-
criminate against Negroes, the bill
would protect Negro voting rights,
compel desegregation of public
schools, parks and playgrounds,
outlaw discrimination in hotels,
restaurants, movies and other
places serving the public, and per-
mit the withholding of federal
funds from programs in which
there is discrimination.
The bill is far stronger than
the one originally requested by
President John F. Kennedy. It
was put together by a coalition of
Democrats and Republicans on the
House Judiciary Committee, work-
ing closely with the administra-
tion. Reps. Emanuel Celler

In Cleveland, the Cleveland
Board of Education lase yesterday
approved a resolution calling for
immediate integration of Negro
pupils transported by bus to three
East side schools wita predom-
inantly white enrollments.
The resolution, aimed at ending
the .dispute which brought this
city its worst racial flareup in
recent years, was worked out last
week at a meeting of representa-
tives of all sides in the dispute
called by Mayor Ralph S. Locher.
It also calls for termination of
the transportation of pupils as
soon as possible.
Mainly involved are some 800
Negro pupils from the overcrowded
Hazeldell Elementary School who
have been kept together in class-
room units at the receiving
schools, a'policy that was inaugu-
rated when- the transportation
program started two years ago.

"shall not apply to a house con-
taining rooming units inwhich
the owner or the lessee of the en-
tire house resides."
Lewis recommended coverage of
all rooming units in houses where
the owner does not reside and all
rooming houses containing fiveor
more rooming units in which the
owner does reside.
Hulcher moved that Lewis' rec-
ommendation, dealt with as an
amendment, be referred to the
Human Relations Commission.
Councilwoman Eunice L. Burns

motion asking the. HRC to con-
sider drawing up a definition of

ter and that Lewis does not have

Handle Concurrently
Johnson also argued that the
amendment should be handled
concurrently by the council's hous-
ing committee as well as the HRC.
"In the past the HRC has made
statements on an issue prior to a
council vote. This has caused em-
barassment when the HRC and
council did not agree on the is-
sue," Johnson warned.
No support was given to John-
son's motion that the amendment
be handled concurrently.
Councilman John Teachout said
that council "must start trusting
the HRC" and let it handle all civil
rights matters.
Mrs. Norma F. Kraker, of tine
Office of Student Affairs and ,p-
erintendent of off-campus :"ousing,
said lat night that Lewis' amend-
ment does not do anything irore
for the ordinance.
Mrs. Kraker said that the l,,w
covers what Lewis recommended
anyway. "I have found through my
own research that more than 50
per cent of the campus area room-
ing houses are covered by the

Turning to the cnurcL's role in
