DETROIT-The third membTe ofthe state's triumvirate of
powerful college presidents has declined to enter the medical
school fray.
Wayne State University President Clarence Hilberry ex-
plains that the medical school 'controversy,' as the newspapers
have labeled it, can only hurt the efforts aimed at voluntary
co-ordination of higher education.
He is holding to the voluntary medical school agreement
reached last November by the Michigan Co-Ordinating Council
for Public Higher Education. University President Harlan Hatch-
er has accused Michigan State University President John Han-
nah with breaking this agreement.r
Absorb 50 Students
The pact, unanimously endorsed by the trio, called for the
University and Wayne to absorb 50 students graduating fom
MSUs 18-month medical program for the first time in 1966
But President Hatcher has charged that MSU intends to
expand the 18-month. transfer plan into a two-year program
as a steppingstone to a full-fledged four-year medical school
Wayne continues to beleve in the agreement and is pie
paring to carry it out.
Take All 50
"Wayne pledged last November-and has continued to
Ueiterate its intention-to take all 50. students if necessary after
they emerge from the 18-month training, starting in 1966,
Hilberiry asserts.
University Medical School Dean William N. Hubbbard told
a group of legislators at recent budget hearings that the Uni-
ersity and Wayne would not be able to take the 50 students if
they giaduated after two years. He did not specify whether theie
ewould be room for 18-month transfers.,a
Hilberry explains that "until we are notified otherwise by
the Michigan State Board of Trustees-or by Hannaha-we will
stand with the agreement."
Institutional In-fighting
He notes that the institutional in-fighting reported in the
newspapers "will not serve the cause of co-ordination, which Is
so vital to the long-range needs of this state."
He calls for the establishment of a strong state board of
education when the new board is set up in 1965. "Its ability to
vemain non-partisan and the competence of its members will
be the major factor m defining exactly how much power it will-
have "
Under the new state constitution, the board is vested with
& Mco-oidinating power over the state's higher education finances,
withthhe specific authority to give recommendations to the
LiarState-Wide Coordination
Disconting the possibility that the board will exercise
nbsolute authority sover the tax-supported schools through its
co-ordinating function, Hilberry observes that "it remains-
with proper qualifications-the best tool we have for state-wide
As proof that others concerned with education support this
;view, Hilberry notes that Gov. George Rlomney's "blue ribbon',
Citizens Committee on Higher Education is analyzing the pos-
sible ways of making the board effective.h
Educators and Lansing officials have expressed concern
that the four board members-to be elected in November-will

educational needs in a 'neutral' fashion.a

GAO Hits
Aid Waste
WASHINGTON 0P ) - United
States Agency for International
Development administrators were
accused yesterday 'of wasting $8.5
million, on projects in Turkey and
Iran and misleading Congress
about their progress.
The charge was made by the
General Accounting Office, which
checks on federal spending for
Congress, in a report to the House
and Senate.
It said funds were used to build
highways and railways that were
not really needed and wound up
going nowhere. In seeking the
money from Congress, the report
added, the administration pre-
sented incomplete and inaccurate
information and withheld other
facts that should have been pre-

Would Work.
With Citizenis
Resolution Suggests
Two Possible Ways
Of AchieVing Goal
A resolution to establish a leg-
islative committee to work with
Gov. George Romney's "Blue Rib-
bon" Citizens' Committee on High-
er Education has been introduced
by Senate Majority Leader Stan-
ley G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor).
The interim committee, made
up of five House members and
five senators, would "cooperate
with the citizens' committee, act as
the liaison between the citizens'
committee and the Legislature and
report to the 1965 Legislature,"
Thayer said.
He explained that the resolution
came as a result of discussions he
had had with Dan Karn, chair-
man of the "blue ribbon" group.
"Karn had requested a way to
work with the Legislature."
Voice of Experience
He noted that his plan would
make legislators available to ad-
vise the "blue ribbon" group from
their own experience. The com-
mittee would be composed of the
leadership of both houses.
The exact relation of the legis-
lative committee to the citizens'
committee would be up to the
citizens' group, Thayer said?. Two
possibilities are that it could ac-
tually sit with the group or that
it would only "consult" with it
Karn last night refused to com-
ment on the resolution. "Thayer
never informed me of the propos-
al," he said, adding that he would
say nothing until he had seen it.
Communication Need
Karn confirmed that he and
Thayer had discussed the need for
increased communication with the
Legislature. "We suggested some-
thing might be done," he said.
Irving Bluestone, a co-chairman
of the committee, said that he
saw the need for greater consul-
tation with legislators, but he like-
wise declined comment on the spe-
cific proposal.
Thayer denied that the resolu-

Gets Data
On School
Education school students con-
sistently score lower on achieve-
ment tests and do poorer academ-
ically than do literary college stu-
dents, according to data recently
given to the National Council for
the Accreditation of Teacher Edu-
cation by the education school.
The widest discrepancies were
between male literary college stu-
dents and male students in edu-
NCATE requested the informa-
dution to aid in its evaluation of the
education school this year. The
school comes up for accreditation
f by the group approximately every
10 years.
Four Scales
Four academic scales were used
to compare the quality of educa-
tion school students and literary
college students: high school per-
centile ranks; American College
Entrance Examination scores -
linguistic and quantitative (ACE-
L, ACE-Q); Scholastic Aptitude
Test scores - verbal and mathe-
matical (SAT-V SAT-M); and
grade-point averages earned at the
Male juniors earning a teacher's
certificate in the literary college
were in the 50th percentile rank
of all University students on the
ACE-L test, and those working for
a secondary certificate in the edu-
cation school were at the 31st
percentile. In comparison, non-
education literary college men av-
eraged in the 62nd percentile.
Among senior men, the respec-
tive ACE-L scores for non-certifi-
cate literary college students,
teaching certificate candidates in
the literary college, education
school secondary students and
elementary certificate s t u d e n t s
were 58 43 34 and 38, respec-
tively , , an ,rse-
25 Points Lower
The high school percentile rank
average for all men in education
was 25 points lower than that for
literary college men.
In addition, literary college male
juniors had an average grade-
point of 2.66, while certificate
candidates in the education school
earned a 2.2.
On the SAT-M scores were 55
and 41 per cent respectively for
LSA and education school males,
while verbal scores were 53 and 45.
Women Better
Although literary college women
on. the average did better than
those in education school, in all
four areas, female certificate stu-
dents in the literary college earned
slightly higher grade-points and
were in a better percentile rank of
their high school classes than
were non-certificate literary col-
lege women.
"It is known on this campus
that transfer students, on the av-
erage, have lower scores on thea
ACE exam and obtain lower aca-
demic grades; consequently the
presence of transfers in the edu-
cation school tends to depress the
mean scores of teacher candi-
dates," the report given to NCATE
Also stressed was the fact that
the percentile figures represent
all-University norms and not na-
tional ranks.
The main purpose of the NCATE
team's visit to the University is to
validate the education school's re-
port on its standing in the follow-
ing seven areas: objectives of
training, administrative structure,
student personnel programs and
services, faculty in professional
education, curriculum, s t u d e n t
teaching opportunities and d


By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - President
Lyndon B. Johnson made another
move yesterday towards a meet-
ing with French President Charles
de Gaulle, whose foreign policy
has been at odds with the United
States recently.
Johnson told a nationally-tele-
vised news conference that he
would be glad to meet de Gaulle
any time satisfactory arrange-
ments are made and "something
can be worked out between us"
The President's gesture seemed
to put the next move for a John-
son-de Gaulle meeting up to
Paris. A meeting has been in the
works since de Gaulle attended
the late President John F. Ken-
ney's funeral in Washington.
More Talks
At the time Johnson had showed
a willingness to meet de Gaulle
for longer talks, but some still-
u n e x plain e d missunderstanding
developed and plans for a meeting
did not progress.
Later, the administration said
that Johnson does wish to meet
de Gaulle if this means leaving
United States soil. In an election
year, Johnson did wish to leave
the country, Paris was told.
De Gaulle is making a trip to
South America this spring, but
does not wish to stop off in Wash-
ington. He had suggested French-
held Martinique as a possible
meeting site.
'Wish It Well'
In a concilatory gesture, John-
son declared that the United
States wants to see France as
strong as possible and "we wish
it well."
"We like to think there are no
irreconcilable difference between
us," he said, adding that "when
the chips are down we'll be to-
In response to a specific ques-
tion whether he is planning any
trips overseas before election,
Johnson said he was not.
The United States and France
have been pulling apart on several
major issues. France recently rec-
ognized Communist China and has
been advocating a policy of neu-
tralization for Southeast Asia.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
said yesterday that talk of neu-

To Give Cuba
issile Control
MIAMI(AP)-Soviet military spe-
cialists will begin handing control
of their missiles in Cuba to Cub-
ans next month, the Miami Herald
said last night.
One of the missiles is capable of
shooting down the high-flying U-2
plane, the newspaper said. No nu-
clear warheads are believed to
be in Cuba, the paper said.
Quoting unnamed Venezuelan
and other Latin military sources,
the article said that the effec-'
tiveness of the weapons will de-
crease by one-third when the
change of hands is completed be-
cause of inexperience of the Cub-
an military men.
The paper noted Cuba's missile
strength at about 500 ground-to-
air missiles with a range of 10-
15 miles; about 40 cruise missile
sites for surface-to-surface mis-
siles with a range of 30-40 miles;
about a dozen Komar patrol boats
each equipped with two missiles
with a range of 15-20 miles; an
unknown quantity of snapper and
frog tactical missiles with a 25-
mile range.
In addition, the paper said there
are more than 100 MIG jets, about
half of them supersonic MIG-21's
equipped with air-to-air missiles.

Moves for Meeting

be held at Bad Godesberg.
German universities, largely de-
stroyed or disrupted during the
war, are now flourishing and fac-
ing problems similar to those con-
fronted by universities the world
over, President Hatcher pointed
Further Dimension
A rising interest in graduate
schools adds further dimension to
the complex of problems.
Research demands imposed on
the faculty by business and aca-
demic interests must be met.
Rectors of the German universi-
ties have organized in an associa-
tion similar to the AAU and have
been seeking a conference with
that body for the purpose of dis-
cussing the problems confronting'
growing institutions.
Concerned with Administration
"European universities are con-
cerned with administration as
never before," President Hatcher
remarked. He added that they
have come to realize that the
problems facing them can no long-
er be met effectively through their
until-now informal organization.
From Bad Godesberg, the group
will travel to West Berlin, where
the Free University of Berlin, built
since World War II, is located.
Munich will be the next stop,
after which the delegation of 12
plans to split up and visit various
West German universities.
Meetings Likely
President Hatcher indicated the
likelihood of a meeting between
several of the United States dele-
gates with members of French,
British. and Scandinavian higher
education associations in England.
The British Association of Com-
monwealth Universities is a coun-
terpart of the AAU, and for many
years a close relationship has been
maintained between the two.

In Election
Tomorrow is the last day Ann
Arbor residents may register to
vote in the city election April 6.
The League of Women Voters of
Ann Arbor says that the city
clerk's considerations in determ-

dents for registration are:
-The student's marital status
and whether or riot he has estab-
lished a residence in Ann Arbor.
-His length of stay, in Ann
-Whether the student is free
from parental control.
-Where he would go in case of

The economic need for the pro-
jects, said the GAO, was so
dubious they were considerably
cut back. It added that only one
-a Turkey-Iran highway-has the
regional characteristics required
for such projects.
Dead End
A proposed Turkey-Iraq high-
way, it said, will end at a river
between the two countries, be-
cause Iraq has withdrawn from
CENTO. It noted that a planned
Turkey-Iran railroad, designed to
link the two nations, has proved
so economically unjustified that
only short segments are being
completed within each country,
leaving a gap of 173 miles between
their railway systems.
Despite all this, the GAO said,
AID officials each year told Con-
gress the projects "were progress-
ing much better than they actually*

just the opposite."

War Is Inevitable
The Soviet answer to it warned
that West Germany was pursuing
policies that could lead ultimately
"to war-a world war."
The Tass statement accused
West Germany of opposing all
relaxation of tension, of reaching
for nuclear weapons, and trying
to interfere with East Germany's
contacts with other countries.
It insisted. West Germany was
trying toeturn its forces "into the
strongest army in Western Europe.
The conclusion from this is that
from now on any measures to en-
sure European security must in-
clude curtailments of the Bundes-
