Defective Bomb
Thrown at Shop
Barber To Stand Trial on Charges
Of 'Accommodations' Violation
In the latest of a series of incidents, a possible bomb was
tossed through the window of a campus area barber shop yesterday.
There was no explosion.
The shop has recently been the target of civil rights demon-
strators. On Monday, Municipal Court Judge Francis O'Brien ruled
that one of the shop's barbers, Everett Lawson, will have to stand

"Only one big step can be taken
to achieve complete integration
and that is the desegregation of
America in every area of American
life," Dr. Benjamin Mays, presi-
dent of Morehouse College Altanta
'University, Georgia, said at a lec-
ture delivered last night.
''Confusion between the terms
desegregation a n d integration
have existed in this country since
the 1954 Supreme Court decision
on the desegregation of schools,"
he added.
Integration, Mays explained,
which is the "unificationi of di-
verse groups into a relatively co-
ordinated and harmonious entity,
can be achieved only ifwe fis
desegregate, or eliminate segrega-
tion. This, he claimed, must be
done through the courts, through
legislation a n d, if necessary,
through demonstrations. For this
reason he urged that the late Pres-
ident John F. Kennedy's civil
rights bill, including the contro-
versial public accommodations sec-
tion, be passed.
Integrated Society
.Mays described an integrated
soitya "a highly spiritualized
nation where pole would be
lagelycolr-blind. Distinctions
would be made largely on the basis
of intellectual competency and
character. No adjectives such as
'my white friend,' or 'my Negro
friend' would be made. .. A Jew

tegration. Barriers must be torn

achieved. The Negro is not on
trial. American democracy is on
Spring Series
Mays' talk was the first in the
Spring Lecture Series sponsored
by the Office of Religious Affairs.
Among the other lecturers to ap-
pear will be the Rev. Milan Opo-
censky and Dr. Billy Graham.
Opocensky, a professor of theo-
logy at a university in Czechoslo-
vakia, is in this country for a
series of "East-West Conversa-
tions." His lectures will deal with
the relationship of religion and

that neither the political nor the
technical machinery for disarm-
ament is at hand.
Commenting on the 18-nation
disarmament conference beginning
in Geneva, Alexander said, "We
expect no agreement to emerge as
a panacea for our problems." but
added, "it is important to not the
spirit in which we have approach-
ed these talks."
He told the symposium that
"just as we correctly view arms
control and disarmament plan-
ning as an element of our own
basic national security interests,
so do we recognize that no agree-
ments can be achieved unless they
represent the self-interest of the
Soviet Union as well."'
He cited as areas of mutual
East-West interest 1) preventing
the outbreak of massive nuclear
war, 2) inhibiting the spread of
nuclear weapons to other nations
and 3) reducing the national de-
fense budgets.
"There is no conflict between
the work of ACDA and the con-
tinuing effort to maintain a strong
defense," Alexander claimed.
Rather, disarmament aids defense
by reducing international tension
and promoting more positive, en-
during relations between nations,

National Concerns Editor
Gov. George Romney will ask
today for a $44 million appropria-
tion to the University for the next
year, Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-
Ann Arbor) indicated last night.
In his budget message, to be
issued this morning, Romney will
divide a $136 million higher edu-
cation appropriation r e q u e s t
among the ten state universities
and colleges. The University will
get $5.8 million of this boost, but
Michigan State University will get
more, Bursley said.d p d by he
Legislature will be the largest in
the University's history, but it will
leave the University $3.6 million
short of its request.
Fulfills Top Requests
The added $5.8 million would
nearly meet the needs of the Uni-
versity's three top priority areas-
salary increases ($3.3 million),
staff books and supplies for the
library ($585,000) and provision
forhigher enrollment ($3.8 mil-
Bursley said he did not know
what capital outlay requests the
governor will make, but he specu-
lated that the University will re-
ceive more than any other state
university. Among the University's
requests in this category are $12
million for the medical science,
unit two building, which the gov-
ernor promised the University in
a state-wide speech last Friday,
and $9 million for a dental school
Romnev revealed last Friday
that he as asking $51 million for
state capital outlay-the largest
in the state's history. and $15 mil-
lion more than last year.
Part One
This outlay is thE first part of
a pay-as-yu-go $100 million state
building program. Other portions
money for 25 new college and urn-
versity structures and for 10 other
state buildings.
In his state of the state and
other messages, Romney h a s
sketched the outlines of his $624
million budget. Few surprises are
expected. M'!'re money will be ap-
propriated for mental health, state
primary and secondary school aid
and welfare programs.
He has called for more funds
for approximately 2000 permanent
and temporarily available beds to
treat the mentally retarded and
more money for mental health re-
search and care.

THE INTERFRATERNITY COUNCIL'S RUSH PROGRAM is now under way following yesterday's
rush orientation meeting in the Michigan Union Ballroom. Both IFC President Cliff Taylor, '64, and
John Feldkamp, assistant to the director of student activities and organizations, addressed prospec-
tive rushees at the meeting. Rush registration begins today and continues through Monday in the
Fishbowl and at the main desk of the Union. Open houses at the 45, fraternities begin Sunday and
continue through Tuesday with first bidding taking place Thursday, Jan. 29. Approximately 700 rush-
ed last spring, and Taylor said he expects this spring's rush to be "considerably larger."
Geneva Conference Reopens .

Fraternities Prepare Rush

GENEVA' (AP) - President Lyn-
don B. Johnson, in a special mes-
sage to the reopening of the 17-
nation disarmament conference,
proposed to the Soviet Union yes-
terday negotiations on freezing
the number and characteristics of
strategic vehicles that carry nu-
clear weapons.
The Russians came up with no
immediate reply in this first dis-
armament session here since last

Johnson also suggested an
agreement to halt all production

Foster Delivers Program
Five specific proposals by John-
son in his administration's first
formal contact with the Russians
at an international conference
were read by United States dis-
armament negotiator William C.
After Foster read them to the
delegates here, Johnson appealed
for United States public support
of his proposals in a surprise
broadcast from Washington. He
said disarmament was every-
body's business and that he was

ready "to go any place, make any
plea, play any part that offers a
realistic prospect" for peace.
Johnson proposed a "verified
freeze of the number and charac-
teristics of strategic nuclear of-
fensive and defensive vehicles."
This was conference terminol-
ogy for agreement by both sides
to stop increasing or Improving
their existing arsenal of strategic
delivery vehicles, including mis-
siles, submarines and surface
ships. A strict international con-
trol system would verify observ-
ance of the agreement, but there
would not necessarily be any sub-
stantial cut in the number of ve-
hicles held by each side at the
time such an agreement was sign-
Foster agreed with one ques-

tioner that the proposal would re-
quire a radical reversal of Soviet
disarmament policy. The Russians
for years have denounced suggest-
ed control measures unaccompan-
ied by corresponding disarma-
ment measures as Western at-
tempts to spy on Russian military
But American officials were
hopeful the Russians may now be
prepared, in the generally im-
proved East-West climate, to dis-
cuss a proposal they would have
spurned a year ago.
Old Proposals
A freeze on delivery vehicles
and a ban on production of fis-
sionable materials for weapons
were both part of the April, 1962,
American draft for a general and
complete disarmament treaty.

Bursley Delivers Resolion11
To Boost 'U' Research Aid
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Arbor) introduced a resolution
last night to enable the University to receive $125,000 for three state-
supported research projects.
Bursley's move came as the University worked to establish an
advisory committee on participation in the state $750,000 fund pro-
jects for research leading to state economic expansion. The re-solu-.
tion, covering $480,000 of the fund, contains one previously un-

Wolvrine Rom Pas Gopers,80-6
Two crucial baskets by Cazzie Russell and one by Captain Bob
Cantrell sealed Michigan's fourth straight Big Ten victory over a
persistent Minnesota squad, 80-66, last night and evened Coach Dave
Strack's career record at 43-43.
The buckets came with nine minutes left in the game when
Minnesota had edged to within seven points, 58-5 1, of the Wolverines
after trailing by as many as 16. Russell brought the ball down the
court, passed off, ran to the baseline, then took a pass under the
hoop and dropped the ball in off the backboard. Michigan got the -4
ball back on a violation and Cantrell calmly potted a jumper from 25
Thirty seconds later the Wolverines again got the ball back
without a Gopher basket and Russell zipped up the game with a
* soft 30 footer.
Strack was pleased after the victory and was free with praise
of his team. He mentioned Russell and Cantrell particularly. "Russell
.~...'.played a fine all around game and Cantrell came up with his usual
excellent defense. He can really mess up an offense." Strack also

Johnny Kundla, the Minnesota mentor, seconded Strack's senti--
ments. "That Russell is a great ball player. He has terrific talent 4
