WASHINGTON (P) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson is expected to
recommend soon that foreign aid
be cut back in scope and that its
effectiveness be checked on a
country-by-country basis.
Sen. John Sherman Cooper (R-
Ky) said yesterday he has re-
ceived personal assurance from
the President of his decision to
create a number of committees to
make on-the-spot checks on how
American money is being spent
abroad and how effective it is as
a cold war weapon.
Cooper has long advocated such
an examination, arguing it is es-
sential to save the program from
elimination by Congress.
Detailed Review
Cooper's idea, amended to the
foreign aid bill, called for the cre-
ation of three-five member com-
mittees to review the effectiveness
of economic aid programs in spe-
cific areas of the world, such as
Latin America, the Middle East,
Southeast Asia and Africa. It
would call for a detailed review of
the programs in the 15-20 coun-
tries receiving half of the total
economic assistance.
Subsequently, Cooper, calling at
the White House at Johnson's in-
vitation, suggested the President
appoint a 14 or 15 member foreign
aid advisory committee, the ma-
jority of whose members, like last
year's group headed by retired
Gen. Lucius D. Clay, would be
drawn from the general public.
This advisory committee would,
in turn, set up the smaller public-
dominated committees to "evalu-
ate the program in specific areas
J and countries."
Specific Information
Cooper told the President he
does not believe the foreign aid
program will win public support
"unless specific information is
furnished to Congress."
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey (D-
Minn) said in a separate interview
that he, too, has been told the
President has accepted the Cooper
idea in principle.'
Humphrey added that the Presi-
dent will incorporate this and
other ideas for changes in a mes-
sage to Congress, probably this
week, asking authorization for a
$3.4-billion program for the year
starting next July 1.
The message, Humphrey said,
will call also for cutting the num-
ber of countries which have been
receiving foreign aid and reducing
the assistance that goes to others.

Ending Board
By The Associated Press
LANSING - Some state legis-
lators are thinking about advocat-
ing abolition of Michigan's new
Commission on Legislative Ap-
portionment because of its failure
in its first redistricting task.
Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) said Friday some Republi-
can legislators are satisfied with
the districting formula in the new
state constitution but feel they
could do the apportioning them-
selves.
Asked if this could mean action
to eliminate the apportionment
commission, he said that would be
"one way of doing it."

Dearborn Fuses{
T
Work, Study
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
Special To The Daily
DEARBORN-Like its director, the Dearborn Center is a
hybrid.
Engendered in the late fifties by a fusion of industry and
education, the University's work-study senior college here
has grown up with the philosophy of the man who directs it.
He is University Vice-President and Director for the Dear-
born Center William E. Stirton, himself a hybrid of industry
and education backgrounds, who believes that students can be
simultaneously trained to "lead the good life" through educa
tion and to "enjoy good living"
through occupation.
Industry Arouses Interest
When a group of industrial
firms, led by Ford Motor Com-
* pany, approached high Univer-
rx sity officials in 1956, Stirton
became interested. The metal-
working companies were en-
visioning a joint work-study in-
stitution for educating trained,:
backgrounded personnel - and
Stirton was chosen to material-
:"w ize their visions.L
He did. The Dearborn Cen-
..yter admitted a pilot group of
37 students in October of 1959,
although the Legislature had$
allotted the campus no state
appropriation.
Funded initially only by in..
dustrial money which had pro-
cured land and built facilities at
WILLIAM E STIRTON a cost of $16 million, the Cen-
ter has expanded to its presentg
size of over 700 undergraduate students at an annual cost
to the state of more than $600,000.
Part-Time Advantage
In addition, some 1000 graduate students and 350 extension^
service pupils take part-time advantage of Dearborn's course
offerings and adult education programs.
"We're moving faster than we anticipated back in 1959,,
Stirton observes. He contends that the bulk of the growth is
yet to come. But noting its present condition, Stirton can be
very proud of the accomplishments to date,
With the unique educational-industrial cross-breed, Stirton.
has in five years developed substantial ties of cooperation with
the state-wide community college system, established a firm
community relationship with industry that may lead the Univer-
sity into foreign labor training programs, and helped the Uni-
versity become a pace-setter in educational and industrial:
training benefiting Southeastern Michigan citizens.
Fusion In 1956
But the story of future expansion must be preceded by the?
story of fusion back in 1956-and that's where Stirton begins
telling about it.-
"In 1956, industry came to education," he commences.
Specifically, a high-powered team of southeastern Michigan
industrialists conferred with University officials about theira
three-fold manpower problem:
1) They were being plagued by insufficient numbers of
"quality" personnel;
"hl2) They were unable to keep instruction current before the
tide of rapidly changing technology, and
3) Their productive capacities were being weakened by
the excessive personnel turnover.-
Future Employment Needs
An even stronger motivation stimulating these metal-
working companies to seek the University's assistance, Stirton
explains, was their statistical projections of future employment
needs.
These initial handfuls of companies-the list of oooperating
groups today has grown to 84-unanimously predicted gaping
shortages of trained college graduates. They presented figures
like these:
-an increase needed every few years amounting to 10 per
cent more college graduates than currently existed on their
payrolls.
-eight per cent turnovers every year in key personnel.
when the companies had been expecting five and six per cent
attrition rates.
-an annual labor need for 2000 additional personnel, most
of them located in the "technical and professional" classifica-
tions which require college-degree holders.
These needs, projected over a 15-year period, pointed to thek
concern which industries in the southeast area were experienc-

U.S. Officials
Clarify Plans
In Viet Nam
WASHINGTON (P) - Some
lower-level United States officials
in Washington and Saigon are
saying that the campaign in South
Viet Nam against the Communists
should be carried into North Viet
Nam, but no such proposal is now
before United States decision
makers.
Government sources said the
United States commitment is still
firmly in support of South Viet
Nam's effort to stamp out Red
guerrillas.
But this is regarded as a cam-
paign to be waged primarily by the
South Vietnamese themselves, not
by full-scale United States in-
volvement, it was stated.
Dangerous Game
President Lyndon B. Johnson
served notice in his Los Angeles
speech Friday that those who give
external direction and supply to
the Red Viet Cong rebels-he did
not mention North Viet Nam or
Red China by nage-"would do
well to remember that this type
of aggression is a deeply dangerous
game."
It was stressed here, however,
that Johnson did not mean that
the United States will take the war
to Hanoi or Peking. Such a plan
is not now before the President or
the Secretaries of State or De-
fense, it was revealed.
The talk about a different way
of waging the campaign in South
Viet Nam has been heard from
some officials who are concerned
over what they see as poor pro-
gress in the anti-guerrilla effort
so far.
No Nationwide Effort
It is argued that the present
Saigon regime or any foreseeable
successor appears unable to mus-
ter a nationwide effort necessary
to wipe out the Reds. It is also
contended that Communist North
Viet Nam is starting to intervene
more openly.
Georgia House
Reapportions
ATLANTA (') - Georgia law-
makers rallied behind their gov-
ernor Yesterday in the final min-
utes of a 40-day session and ap-
proved, after bitter debate, the
reapportionment of congressional
seats.
In the climax, the rural-domin-
ated House voted by a narrow
margin to give the populousrAt-
lanta metropolitian area two con-
gressmen for the first time in his-
tory.
The other eight seats were ap-
portioned along existing lines to
a great extent. One district was
unchanged.
Democratic Gov. Carl E. Sand-
ers won the fight with a personal
appeal to the House shortly before
the midnight adjournment re-
quired by law.
Time actually had run out in
the House, but the official clock
was stopped.

PETTY DESTRUCTION-This hole in a Michigan Union wall
once housed a clock. In an effort to apprehend vandals respon-
sible for this and other acts that have plagued the Union in the
past few weeks, a policeman has been hired to patrol the building
while off duty.
Union Hires .Policeman
To atch for Vandalism
By JOHN BRYANT
The Michigan Union, plagued with vandalism in the last several
weeks, has hired a local policeman to patrol the building as a plain-
clothesman while off duty.
According to the policeman, Officer Raymond Winters of the
Ann Arbor Police Department, the doors at the side entrance to the
building have been broken several times and clocks have been
ripped from the walls. Winters '

noted that large numbers of high
school students and dropouts have
been frequenting the building in
the past several weeks and the
Union has been exercising its right
to ask them to leave.
Clears 'U' Students
Union President Raymond Rus-
nak, '64, felt that the vandalism
was not being performed by any-
one from the University. "Although
we are happy to serve local resi-
dents, our real purpose is to serve
the students, the alumni, and the
faculty of the University.
"However, if some of them cause
a disturbance, we have no reserva-
tions in asking them to leave,"
Rusnak emphasized.
"Our only motive in asking
people to leave is trying to keep
the Union a place that students,
faculty and alumni would want to
come to," he added.
Earlier Arrests
The first arrest as a result of
the police protection occurred Fri-
day night when two youths were
apprehended on charges of dis-
orderly conduct in the Union Grill.
The pair, asked to leave by a
cafeteria supervisor, tripped a
man in the grill and started a dis-
turbance,dcausing Winters to be
summoned.
Upon being placed under arrest
by Winters on disorderly conduct
charges, the pair, allegedly under
the influence of alcohol, fled from
the building and down South
University Avenue.
Winters pursued them, but the
pair overcame him and escaped
before additional help arrived. One
of the pair was apprehended later.

Nations Seek
UNITED NATIONS (P)-United
States Ambassador Adlai E. Stev-
enson said yesterday that he and
other negotiators had "made some
progress, but not enough" in try-
ing to thrash out a Cyprus peace
plan with United Nations Secre-
tary General U Thant.
Stevenson and Sir Patrick Dean
of Britain-whose country has al-
most 7000 troops on the Mediter-
ranean island trying to curb blood-
letting between Greek and Turk-
ish Cypriots - saw Thant last
night.
Dean told reporters he was en-
couraged and optimistic, but that
nothing had been settled.
Seek Agreement
"Everybody wants an agree-
ment," he said, "it's just a ques-
tion of getting it."
Cyprus Foreign Minister Spyros
Kyprianou was unyielding in his
country's demands, which have in-
cluded a Security Council guar-
antee of the island's integrity.
"We are not here to com-
promise," he said after spending
two hours with Thant before the
British and American represen-
tatives went in.
Thant yesterday won Security
Council agreement to postpone its
next session until Tuesday to give
him more time to continue these
formula - seeking discussions in
private.
Multi-Country Talks
These talks have primarily con-
cerned Britain, Greece, Turkey
and Cyprus, which are directly in-
volved in the explosive situation.
The four countries are generally
agreed that the Council should ap-
prove an international peace-keep-
ing force for Cyprus and that a
mediator should be named for
feuding Greek and Turkish Cyp-
riots.
Tney disagree over how to link
this force to the Council. Thant
suggests that the link be through
an advisory committee of three
Council members--Brazil; Moroc-
co and Norway.
Cyprus, Britain and Greece gen-
erally accept this. But Turkey pre-
fers a looser link and would have
Thant consult the four countries
involved on the direction of the
force rather than set up a Council
committee.
The Soviet Union, which could
veto any resolution, also objects

Questions,
Answers
EDITOR'S NOTE - ReproducedA
here are questions concerning the
proposed residential college, along
with answers to them given by a
literary college committee estab-
lished to explore the specifics of the
proposed new unit. Questions and
the committee's answers are both
reproduced verbatim.
Q: What features of a resi-
dential college make it especial-
ly desirable?
A: Increased contacts among
students and between faculty and
students; potential for educationall
experimenting.
Q: Why should a new college1
be a branch or creature of thel
literary colleget
A: Its students will have a lit-k
erary college degree; the literaryi
college can insure the quality of1
instruction; it will provide an out-t
let for the increased numbers inI
the literary college; good faculty
members will be attracted byl
prospects of membership in the1
literary college faculty.
* * *
Q: Would its chance of su-i
cess be improved if it were in-
dependent?
A: No, because of the difficulties1
in creating and maintaining a1
small college.
* * *
Q: Should it lie remote from
the campus?
A: No. One of the major ad-
vantages is that its students could
partake of the offerings of the
University as a whole.
* * *
Q: Should not the selection of
students and staff be the re-
sponsibility of the new college?
A: Only partially. The LSA fac-
ulty would wish to have a choice
in the selection of staff, if the
students are to be LSA students.
Also, staff recruitment should be
easier if affiliation with LSA is
maintained.
Q: On what principles are
estimates of size formulated?
A: On some experience with the
number of students who can be
housed together and interact con-
veniently.
* * *
Q: If residence halls holding
1000 or more students are too
big, should not the college be
held to half this number?
A: 1000 does not seem too big,
and the Committee believes there
would be sufficient interest for a
college of this size.
* * *
Q: What appeal would offset
restrictions imposed by the lim-
ited curriculum and small staff?
A: Opportunity for closer con-
tact with fellow students and fac-
ulty; availability of the University
for special needs.
* * *
Q: What is the essence of the
experimentation proposed?
A: This would have to be left
up to the residential college's
staff, the LSA Curriculum Com-
mittee, et al.
Q: Cannot experimentation of
this sort be carried on in any
new dormitory that is built?
A: Perhaps, but not as conven-
iently or as fruitfully as in a new
college designated as such.
Q: Will not cost be higher
than in LSA presently?
A: Almost certainly at first, not
necessarily later.
Q: What alternative solutions
are there to whatever problems
the college is intended to solve?
A: Increased efforts to improve
education in LSA as now operat-
ing; establishment of branches;

segmenting LSA on campus; re-
legating lower division work to
junior colleges; reorganization to
provide a basic general college.
* * *
Q: How does the concept of
the college fit into the overall
plan for LSA and the Univer-
sity?
A: As far as the Committee is
aware, the concept contradicts no
known plans.

Envisions Tie to LSA,
Enrollment of 1000,
Full Faculty Status
By KENNETH WINTER
Details of the proposed resi-
dential college, as envisioned by a
special faculty committee, were
made public yesterday.
Headed by Prof. George E. Hay,
chairman of the mathematics de-
partment, the group of top faculty
members was established earlier
this month to clear up misunder-
standings and answer questions
raised by the literary college fac-
ulty. Its report, distributed earlier
this week to the faculty, was ,re-
leased by unofficial sources.
The fact-finding committee will
hold an open meeting at 4 p.m.
tomorrow in Rm. 1025 Angell Hall
"for the purpose of receiving fac-
ulty opinion" on the residential
college.
The Specifics:
The Hay Committee report pic-
tures a residential college along
these lines:
It would be associated with the
literary college. The new unit's
director would be an associate
dean in the litereray college and
residential college faculty and ad-
ministrators would be "responsible
to their superiors in the literary
college."
Its faculty would be full-fledged
members of the literary college
faculty who hold "temporary, full-
time or part-time assignments in
the residential colege." This came
In response to literary coilege fac-
ulty members who worr'ed that
residential c oI11 e g e instructors
might be "second class" faculty
members.
Staff-Student Contact
"No provision for a resident fac-
ulty is contemplated, but there
should be increasedcontact be-
tween staff and students, invov-
ing counseling, teaching and in-
formal activities in the college
ouidings," the committee main-'
tains.
Its student body would be com-
posed of 1000 students at most, all
of whom asked to be in the resi-
dential college. They would not be.
selected for any special level of
ability or field of interest. Thus it
would not be an honors college,
as some faculty members had ex-
pected.
Moreover, a student who joins
the new college as a freshman
would be expected to remain en-
rolled there-and to live there-
throughout h is undergraduate
years. The aim is to develop "a
strong student identification with
the college through intellectual,
social and perhaps also athletic
activities," the report explains.
Wide Range
Its curriculum, in order to serve
this diverse student clientele,
would have to be "fairly wide-
ranging."
In addition, it would be design-
ed with an eye to experimentation
with new educational ideas-but
"under the jurisdiction of the lit-
erary college curriculum commit-
tee." This group oversees all lit-
erary college curriculum plans,
particularly in introductory
courses.
In this way, the residential col-
lege's courses would be "developed
from the curriculum of the liter-

ary college," the report says.
Its buildings, located "no far-
ther from main campus than
North Campus," would contain
classrooms, staff offices, a library,
possibly elementary laboratory fa-
cilities, seminar lounges, dormi-
tories and supporting facilities
such as dining rooms and coffee
bars.
Still Patronized
But literary college libraries and
laboratories would still be pat-
ronized by residential college stu-
dents, the report states.
It would teach only its own
students. "Service teaching"-of-
fering liberal-arts courses to stu-
dents enrolled in other University
schools and colleges - would be

Michigan's onrushing icers came from behind a two point deficit
to shell Minnesota 8-2 last night and run ahead farther in the WCHA
standings.
"We played a great game," said Coach Al Renfrew. "Anytime
a team gets 54 shots on goal you know it's playing well."
Minnesota put in two goals by 3:04 of the second period before
the Wolverines came alive on Captain Gordie Wilkie's first tally.
Wilkie's shot came off a pass from Tom Polonic 20 feet out. Gopher
goalie John Lothrop came out to the left as the shot sailed straight
in.
