On Medical Unit
MSU, 'U' Contest Alleged Creation
Of Third School in East Lansing
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
University and Michigan State University officials quietly tore
into each other yesterday like verbal scalpels over the issue of a third
state medical school.
One high MSU source, reported by the Associated Press to be
President John Hannah, ripped into University President Harlan H.
Hatcher for "purposeful misread-

Hannah later denied that he
had issued this comment.
President Hatcher had criticized
MSU in Lansing Tuesday night
for giving indications that it is
trying to convert its non-clinical
institute program of medical edu-
cation into a full-fledged medical
These suspicions were also
chorused yesterday by Sen. Gar-
land Lane (D-Flint) and Sen. El-
mer Porter (R-Blissfield), who
warned against the $35 million
expense to create a full-fledged
medical school and the $100 mil-
lion necessary for a medical cen-
ter in East Lansing.
Gov. George Romney would not
commit himself on whether the
state needs a third medical school.
But he promised a full investiga-
tion into the question by his Cit-
izen's Committee on Higher Edu-
cation. He also called for the
Legislature to fulfill the current
commitments to the existing

of MSU to proceed with its two-
year program only" and to put
off future decisions on the med-

But key University officials were
discounting Hannah's statement
in citing these facts:

hired dear of the program, Prof.

This figure gives Hunt, the
assistant to the MSU director of

program, a salary reportedly sev-
eral thousand dollars higher thani
that of University Medical School
Dea William N. Hubbard.
It ranks $10,000 more than the;
salary of Wayne State University's
medical director, and approxi-
mately that amount above the av-
erage wage' for the deans of the
nation's four-year program.
-Prof. Hunt, who MSU officials;
said was being brought in to ad-

had hired what one Wayne offi-

of staff members to teach clini-;

This case is being presented to
the University, Taylor added in

"The University has taken the

Taylor feels that Ann Arbor is
behind many communities of com-

area of housing.
Commenting on academic prob-

In New York, Zenon Rossides,
Cyprus ambassador to the United

against Cyprus. But he made no
move for an immediate meeting
of the Security Council.
Rossides made the statement
after a conference with Thant.
He said that he gave the same
information to Carlos Alfredo Ber-
nardes of Brazil, February presi-
dent of the council.
Rossides added that if the threat
from Turkey heightens "we will
ask for a Security Council meet-

said, Cyprus would request a meet-
