UN May Dispatch
Force to Cyprus
Neutral Nations Sponsor Peace Plan
As 'Take It or Leave It' Settlement
UNITED NATIONS OP) - Diplomatic sources said last night a
resolution will be put before the United Nations Security Council
Monday calling for the dispatch of an international peacekeeping force
and the appointment of a mediator to resolve the Cyprus crisis.
Sources close to the sponsors of the resolution said it will be
offered on a "take it or leave it" basis as the best hope of producing
tany kind of a United Nations for-


Greece Sets
State of Alert
ATHENS 'P-The Greek gov-
ernment has put its military units
in an advanced state of alert and
warned Turkey that this country
will oppose any unilateral armed
intervention on Cyprus, reliable
sources said here today.
Foreign ministry sources said
Foreign Minister Stavros Costoi-
oulos summoned Turkish Ambas-
sador Nedim Ilkin yesterday to re-
lay the warning against interven-
tion on Cyprus.
These sources said Costopoulos'
words constituted "a friendly
warning, not a threat."
Increased Alert
Reliable Greek sources report-
ed late last night that the state
of alert of Greek military units
had been increased.
Premier George Papandreou al-
so indicated last night that Greece
would retaliate against any Tur-
kish intervention in Cyprus.
In Ankara, Prime Minister Is-
met Inonu held a two-hour session
yesterday with his top. assistant,
Kemal Satir, and Foreign Minis-
ter Feridun Cemal Erkin.
Talks with Leaders
Inonu later received General
Cevdet Sunay, chief of the gen-°
eral staff. Erkin had separate talks
with United States Ambassador
Raymond Hare and his British
colleague Sir Dennis Allen.
Informed sources said Turkey
would not hesitate to use her
right of intervention to protect
her rights in Cyprus.
Emerging from his consultation
with Inonu and Erkin, Satir told
newsmen he did not expect much
from United Nations Security
Council deliberations and the An-
kara government would not be
bound by any council resolution
aimed against Turkish rights.
The council is expected to take
up Monday a resolution calling for
dispatch of a peacekeeping force
to Cyprus and appointment of a

mula for a settlement.
The sponsors are Brazil, Bolivia,
Norway, Morocco and the Ivory
Coast-all non-permanent mem-
bers of theCouncil.
As Far As Possible
The sources said they did not
know if the resolution would win
approval of the council, but that
it went as far as the negotiators
believed they could in trying to
bring together the conflicting
This word came as the council
heard a charge from a represen-
tative of the Turkish Cypriots
that the Cyprus government is us-
ing terror against his countrymen
in an attempt to influence deci-
sions of the council.
Rauf Denktash, head of the
Turkish Cypriot delegation in New
York, 01d the council that the
government of President Arch-
bishop Makarios "has given orders
to their gunmen to lie in wait
while these proceedings go on."
One-Sided Resolution
He declared that the aim is to
pressure the council into approv-
ilg a one-sided resolution which
Makarios would regard as doing
away with the 1960 treaty of guar-
antee and give hum rein to annihi-
late Turkish Cypriots.
"It will take some time to com-
plete the annihilation of 100t 100
Turks," %e ,aid. "But may I say!
tha: it i not recessary that all of
us be killed. It is enough that life
in Cypru should be made im-
possible for us, and that is the
Clashes between Greeks and
outnumbered Turkish Cypriots
erupted in Cyprus in late Decem-
ber. The issue was brought to the
council in an effort to avoid war-
fare that could involve the forces
of Turkey and Greece. Britisn
troops are on the island enforcing
a shaky cease-fire.
Sharp Exchange
A sharp exchange between So-
viet de egate Nikolai T. Fedorenko
and Turkish delegate Turgut
Menemencioglu p r e c e d e d the
speech by Danktash.
Fedorenko objected that Mene-
mencioglu, in previous remarks to
the council, had alleged that Spy-
ros Kyprianou, the Cyprus foreign
minister, did not represent his
The Turkish delegate replied
that Kyprianou's views did not
represent those of the Turkish
Cypriot community and therefore
could not be interpreted as those
of "the Cypriot government as
such.' He said there was no con-
sultation with the Turkish Cyp-
riots on Kyprianou's mission to
the United Nations.
Menemencioglu said that Greece
had not voiced any objections. He
added that he did not think the
Soviet Union should assume the
role of coming between "good
friends and neighbors."
The 1960 treaty of guarantee
remained the chief stumbling
block in producing agreement on
the latest draft of a resolution to
have the council call on Secre-
tary-General U Thant to put to-
gether an international peace-
keeping force and name a media-
tor to help resolve the crisis.

The plan, which would replace
the current editor Rocco Pietro

Seton Hall President Bishop John

Dougherty suspended the paper,

Following the announcement of
the suspension, students demon-
strated for the paper, tying up
South Orange traffic. Police and
firemen used water pumped from
a firehose to disperse the crowd.
One fireman was injured by a
stone-filled snowball.
Dougherty declared that "free-
dom of expression is being abused
in the columns of the Setonian.
There have been misrepresenta-
tions of facts when the true facts
could easily have been ascertained.
An unwholesome spirit of cynicism

criticized for an article urging the

despite his divorcerandrremarriage.

PRINCESS ANNE, Md. (M)-A three-day moratorium on street

a meeting with town and state officials.

The paper's moderator, or advis-

Trays discussed the situation with
Dougherty yesterday afternoon but
no action was taken, he continued.

SNote Action
On Housing
Actions on fair housing ordin-
ance changes and three high-level
appointments were reviewed at the
Regents meeting Friday.
Terming the discussion "purely
an academic question," Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs James A.
Lewis explained that his recent
letter to the Ann Arbor City Coun-
cil backing changes in the city's
fair housing ordinance did not
technically represent the Univer-
Since no action of the Univer-
sity is really official until the Re-
gents pass on it, the letter repre-
sented Lewis in his position as
vice-president for student affairs.
Instead, the letter was a "reflec-
tion" of the University, Lewis said.
The letter urged a revision in
the housing ordinance to cover
rooming houses-the type which
would most effect students.
Consideration is continuing for
finding the successors to Vice-
President for Research and Dean
of the Graduate School Ralph A.
Sawyer and for appointing a per-
manent director of the Institute

pected all three posts to be filled
before the summer, President

leaders said:
"In a meeting of high state of-
ficials it was agreed that there
will be a moratorium on non-vio-
lent demonstrations from Friday
through Monday."
Ultimatum Delivered
A student spokesman said dem-
onstrations would resume Tuesday
unless restaurants are completely
desegregated and a meeting is ar-
ranged between student leaders
and high state officials to consider
other demands.
Earlier, the students heard
comedian -Dick Gregory tell them
they will demonstrate for 40 days
and 40 nights unless their new,
broadened demands for desegre-
gation are met.
The Negro entertainer spoke at
the Metropolitan Methodist
Church to about 200 students from
predominantly Negro Maryland

cial relations, conferred with.
Princess Anne businessmen and
other officials earlier for nearly
two hours.
"There was nothing conclusive
decided," Simpkins said.
On Wednesday, 250-300 Negro
students from Maryland State
twice clashed with state police,
who drove them back to the cam-
pus with police dogs while volun-
teer firemen used fire hoses.
Sticks and Stones
The students retaliated with
bricks, sticks and bottles. Trooper
Coln Macindoe, 29, Easton, was
burned on the feet and legs, ap-
parently from acid thrown during
the demonstration.
Gregory made a public appear-
ance at the civic center inBalti-
more Friday night, then crossed
the Chesapeake Bay to Princess
Anne. He stopped at Cambridge
en route to talk with Mrs. Gloria
Richardson, militant integration-
ist who led demonstrations there
last summer.
At his meeting, he ticked off a
list of specific demands, including
complete desegregation of all pub-
lic facilities; withdrawal of all
charges against 27 demonstrators
arrested Wednesday; employment
of specific numbers of Negroes as
clerks or sales personnel at var-
ious business houses downtown,
and spoke of a boycott-the first
mention of that technique here.

Union To Enforce Rle
To Ban High Schoolers
The Michigan Union announced yesterday that it will enforce its
rule banning high school students from the building.
According to Union President Raymond Rusnak, '64, the Union
has received many complaints from students about incidents caused
by high school students or dropouts in the Union cafeteria. The Union
has also been plagued by out-
breaks of vandalism in the past I
several weeks.\

Show ID Card
Union employees will begin ask-
ing any persons they encounter
in their regular duties to show
identification if they suspect them
of being high school students.
"We are going to make every
effort to make the Union a place
for University students, faculty,
and alumni. The only high school
students allowed in the building
will be those in organized groups
connected with the University,"
Rusnak hastened to add that
the Union was not attempting to
be discriminatory in asking non-
members to leave..
Not Discriminatory
"We are contacting local anti-
discriminatory organizations and
are willing to work with them in
an effort to make it clear that the
Union has no such intention," he
"We ask all students to cooper-
ate with us in attempting to elim-
inate the high school student
problem. If asked for identifica-
tion, students should realize that
they are not being harassed; it is
merely an effort to make the
Union a better place for the entire
campus "
Earlier this week, the Union an-
nounced that it has hired a local
policeman to patrol the building
during his off-duty hours in an
attempt to minimize vandalism.

After Fight at City Hall
Thirteen Direct Action Committee demonstrators were arrested
and charged with disorderly conduct yesterday after a protest they
were staging at Ann Arbor City Hall ended in a fight with detectives
and firemen.
The demonstration protested alleged police bruitality, citing as
an example the handling of the arrest of several Ann Arbor youths
earlier this week.
The eight adults arrested were Delmar Barnard, David Barnard,
Larry Collins, Phyllis Erfurt, Richard Hutchins, Martha Mason,
- Amanda McKenzie, and Judy
Weissman. They are being held in
the County Jail on $25 bond.

terday he will not seek re-election
to the House this year but is con-

The Ann Arbor lawmaker said
he is "leaning toward Congress,"
however, because of the provision

Hit Provision
On Contracts
1964 Outlay Proposal
Gives State Bureau
Control over Bidding
A provision in Gov. George
Romney's capital outlay bill which
University administrators f e e I
would infringe on the University's
autonomy was shrugged off by key
Lansing legislators and adminis-
trators yesterday.
In question is a phrase in the
legislation making the state comp-
troller "authorized and empower-
ed to award... contracts.
(for) all projects ... for all state
agencies including four-year col-
leges and universities."
At present, the University, Mich-
igan State University and Wayne
State University handle their own
construction contracts, while the
seven other state higher education
institutions have theirs handled by
the building division of the comp-
troller's office.
Hole in Dike
To allow the state to award
University construction contracts
would be to "put a hole in the
dike protecting the program of
the University from unconstitu-
tional control by the executive
branch of government," Vice-Pres-
ident for Business and Finance
Wilbur K. Pierpont said.
"Faculty committees say what
should be in our buildings. Any-
one else would interfere. That is
the heart of the matter."
But State Comptroller Glenn
Allen said the bill, as presently
worded, would not change his
handling of University contracts.
'Authorized' Awards
"The language of the bill says
we are 'authorized' to award con-
tracts," he said. "But the big three
universities are set up so they can
run things themselves,.
Therefore, Allen said, the
comptroller's office would continue
to let the University, MSU and
WSU handle their contracts them-
selves,"unless the legislative boys
say otherwise."
However,sAllen's statements yes-
terday appear to contradict those
he made to a gathering of legis-
lators and University officials
Monday. At that time he had said
that the new bill "clarifies the
language" of the legislation that
has been passed each of the last
two years. (Previous to 1961, the
big three universities had been
specifically exempted from the
jurisdiction of the comptroller.)
Let Out Contracts
"The new bill makes the depart-
ment of administration (which the
comptroller heads) let out all con-
structio contracts using state
funds," he had said.
Pierpont has arranged a meet-
ing with Allen for next Tuesday
to discuss the matter.
Representatives Carrol C. New-
ton (R-Delton), Arnell Engstrom
(R-Traverse City), chairman o
the House Appropriations Com-
mittee, and Allison Green (R-
Kingston), speaker of the House,
agreed that this is how the bill
was meant to be interpreted. But
they all also agreed that the
purpose of the bill was not to in-
fringe upon the autonomy of the
Don't Want To Interfere
"We have no desire to hamper
the administration of the univer-
sities," Green said. He noted that
his prime concern was with the
seven smaller state schools which
received their autonomy this year
under the new state constitution.
Engstrom, whose committee will
hear the bill in the House, said,

"We don't know if that provision
is going to stay in the bill." But
he said he .didn't expect much of
a fight against it and it probably
would remain.
Newton explained that the move
to include the big three universi-
ties in the bill was based on an

recent reversal of policy.
David Hartman, '64, president of

his group will handle applications
for table space under the new
management. "The allowance is
being made because of numerous
requests from organizations that
want a way to contact students,"
he said.
In addition to having no more
than two organizations allowed in
the Fishbowl at any one time, the

Voice Sees Hope
For Active SGC
"The goal of Student Government Council should be to make itself
an autonomous student rule-making body uninhibited by a potential
administrative veto."
With this campaign issue and nine others, Voice political party
will support a slate of four SGC candidates in next Wednesday's elec-
Endorsed by Voice are Stephen Berkowitz, '65; Barry Bluestone,
'66; Stan Nadel, '66, and Richard Shortt, '66. Voice is also supporting
two candidates for the Board in Control of Student Publications:
Fred Russell Kramer, '64, incumbent, and write-in, Richard Kraut, '65.
More Responsibility
The ten-point platform, issued by Voice for this election, centers
around having students gain more control and responsibility for their
own non-academic affairs.
Specifically concerning SGC, the platform asks for action:
-To make SGC act dynamically in expressing student opinion on
"campus problems unsatisfactorily resolved or insoluble";
-In expanding SGC activities to cover programs of interest to
students", and
-In establishing SGC "as a policy making body. The hope for
a real student government" rests in this.
