OSA To Change
Rules for Women
Intend To Have New Rules Printed
For Implementation by This Fall
By THOMAS COPI
New and apparently more liberal women's regulations are to
be announced Wednesday by the Office of Student Affairs, Vice Pres-
ident for Student Affairs James A. Lewis said yesterday.
Lewis said that the OSA hopes to complete the changes in wo-
men's rules by that time in order to enable the changes to "get into
print" for next fall.
In a meeting held yesterday; Lewis and Dr. John Bingley, direc-
tor of student activities and organizations discussed changes pro-
posed for women's regulations in a recent Women's Conference Com-
mittee survey with the leaders of the three major women's

Rep. Wilfred Bassett (R-Jack-

has made a bid to, have a $500,-
000 tacked onto the capital outlay
appropriation to permit planning
for the new building of the archi-
tectural and design college on
But House and Senate leaders
working late into the night on
appropriations and redistricting
predicted that the University will
not get allotments surpassing
A University spokesman said
yesterday that he would be "quite
satisfied" with the appropriations
as requested by Romney. He noted
that if the' $44 million can pass
through the Legislature, the Uni-'
versity will be able to move into
full-scale trimester operations.
Senate Appropriations Commit-
tee Chairman Frank Beadle, (R-
St. Clair), while declining to pre-
dict what the exact recommenda-
tions of his committee would be,
indicated that they would be
"somewhere in the general range"
of the governor's requests.
Other members concurred, al-
t h o u g h noting that certain
changes might be in order for
some of the other nine state-sup-
ported universities. They and the
University are featured in the
overall higher education bills in,
which Romney has sought a total
of $131.3 million for operations
and $27 million in capital outlay.
Michigan State University was
mentioned as having one of the
more "highly controversial" ap-
propriation requests. Sources said
that MSU may suffer slight oper-
ations slashes but receive capital
outlay gains on their pending rec-
ommendations-$39.6 million and
$8 million, respectively.
Even if the University's $44 mil-
lion budget is set before the Sen-
ate on Wednesday-and it may
still suffer committee slashes in
final meetings Monday-it still will
have a steep climb to passage.
Biggest obstacle is expected to
be the House which will take up
the Senate-passed bills by April

S SGC Probes
By KAREN KENAH
Action was taken last night in
Student Government Council to
probe the possibility of beginning
a scholar in residence program-
ming at the University and setting
up a student employes union.
The program would provide
funds and organization to bring
to the University for a year a
person intimately involved in some
profession such as theatre, busi-
ness, research, labor or others. A
subcommittee of SGC's Educa-
tional Affairs Committee was set
up to investigate the project. It
will be responsible for working
out the details of his position.
The primary difficulty in in-
stituting the program is financial.
It is estimated that at least $20,-
000 will be necessary to insure
that the person brought is of
sufficient quality to warrant the
Gary Cunningham, '66, who set
the motion before Council, stated
that if the student body were
made aware of the advantages of
the plan a large part of the mon-
ey could be raised from them. Oth-
er Council members expressed
doubt about raising the neces-
sary funds in this manner.
"As far as I know, if this pro-
gram goes into effect it will be
the first time that students will
take part, through their represen-
tative organization, in financing
an educational endeavor of this
sort," Cunningham added.
He expressed hope that the pro-
gram can go into effect in the
fall of 1965.
An ad hoc committee of five
members was set up to explore a
motion proposed by Barry Blue-
stone, '66, to institute a student
employes' union. Bluestone, who
will chair the committee, said the
group will have a two-fold pur-
pose : to investigate the entire
student employment situation;
and, using that data, to explore
the feasibility of actual forniation
of a union.
To fulfill the first aim admin-
istrators, student workers, busi-
ness managers and off-campus
employers will be interviewed.
Bluestone envisions the union in
its final form as an autonomous
student-led organization capable
of exerting pressure through ne-
gotiation and protest if neces-
groups on campus: League Presi-
dent Nancy Freitag, '64, Assem-
bly Association President Maxine
Loomis, '65N and Panhellenic
President Ann Wickins, '65. Also
present were Acting Daily Editor
H. Neil Berkson, '65, and Student
Government Council President
Thomas Smithson, '65.
Prefer Own Rules
In the WCC survey, the women
showed a definite preference for
the OSA to set rules in cases in-
volving housing only, leaving the
other rule-making powers up to
In yesterday's meeting, there
was "general agreement," al-
though there were "three points"
over which the OSA disagreed
with the women, although they

Several of the rules changes re-
quested: by the 3400 women polled
in the WCC survey are those
which would allow women with
key permission to leave their
housing units after closing, give
f - ther consideration to junior
apartment permission and remove
the rule restricting freshman wo-
men from visiting 'men's non-
University approved housing.

Miss Freitag said that she was
pleased with the OSA's reactions
toward the requests made, while

cussed sterday, Miss Wickins
said.Lews emphasized that ev-
eryone seemed satisfied .mth the
progress rade, and that whatever
the final rule changes arethey
will go into effect next fall.
Another recommendation made
through the WCC poll was to ex-
tend visiting hours to from 9 a.m.
to closing, the present visiting
hours being from 12 noon to clos-
ing; the survey also showed that
the number and length of auto-
matic late permissions (ALP's)
should be : seniors-more than 10
of three hours in length; juniors-
eight (sororities) or 10 (residence
halls) of two hours in length;
sophomores-eight of two hours
each; freshmen-eight of either
one or two hours. Presently, sen-
iors have no hours, juniors have
eight ALP's of two hours each
while sophomores and freshmen
have no ALP's.
Also, the WCC survey recom-
mended that information to be
registered for daily sign-outs
should be name, expected time of
return and room number. r
In general, the results of the
WCC poll indicated that sorority
women were more conservative

WASHINGTON (AP)-Sen. Mike
Mansfield of Montana, the ma-

MSU Solicits Appropriations
Michigan State University is
making a public bid for state
funds amidst reports from legis-
lators that its appropriation re-
quests have been "highly contro-
MSU President John Hannah
charged in a speech Tuesday night
that his institution "is being
short-changed by the Legislature."
He complained that while MSU
has absorbed some 30 per cent of
the student enrollment increase
in Michigan since 1957, the, Uni-
versity has taken only 14 per cent.
Despite this admittance per-
formance, the average legislative
grant to MSU per-student is $876,
a "tremendous slash" from the
$1061 appropriated per-student in
1957, Hannah said.
But a legislative spokesman for
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee rebutted that "many mem-
bers of the Legislature are very
concerned with MSU's appropria-
tion recommendation submitted to
the Legislature. Some slashes may
be in order."
He was referring to Gov. George
Romney's recommendation to the
Legislature that MSU be given
$39.6 million for operations. The
Senate Appropriations Committee
is currently analyzing the recom-
mendation-along with the gov-
ernor's requests for the other nine
state-suupported schools-in order
to report the bill to the Senate
floor Tuesday midnight.
MSU's nearly $8 million capital
outlay appropriation suggested by
the governor is also under sur-
veillance by members of both

University officials are critical
of Hannah's statements, pointing

that MSU could be educating its

Loyal staff members were with
Goulart and his family in the air-
liner that took off from Brasilia
shortly before midnight. The'
group had been forced to return
to Brasilia in a jetliner which de-
veloped engine trouble in a first
attempt to reach Porto Alegre..
Bectic victory demonstrations
under clouds of confetti and tick-
er tape had erupted in Rio de Ja-
neiro and Sao Paulo at the first
broadcast word that Goulart had
Then came a broadcast from
Brasilia that Goulart would make
a stand there.
The departure for the South ap-
parently changed that decision.
Sao Paulo's Radio Liberty,
which has been broadcasting anti-
Goulart reports, announced that
Brazilian navy ships with a de-
stroyer in the lead had left Rio
de Janeiro for Porto Alegre, pos-
sibly for a naval bombardment to
further the rebellion.
"One small salvo from the de-
stroyer is enough to destroy a 20-
story building," the broadcast?
The third, army in Rio Grande
do Sul is by, far the strongest of
Brazils four armies. However, reb-
el leaders here reported that one
of its strongestunits, garrisoned
at a rail center near the Uru-
guayan border, had revolted
against Brizola and was moving
on Porto Alegre.
Brizola, former governor of Rio
Grande do Sul, is a member of the
National Congress and a power in
the deep south.
One of Goulart's first acts on
arriving in Brasilia was to sign a
decree nationalizing all gasoline
distributing firms. This evidently
was done to show that he consid-
ered himself still president and
in full exercise of his authority.
When Goulart fled io Brasilia

Tightened granting policies of the National Institutes of
Health are currently burdening some public health school re-
search efforts, Dean Myron E. Wegman said recently.
But at the same time, a different NIH policy in effect
since 1962 is giving substantial aid to the University's financial
role in research supported from the outside.
Ever since late 1962, when pressures from Congressional
hearings prompted the NIH to tighten its policy, grant-holders
have not been paid out of research funds for teaching they
have done in connection with their appointments.
Before the change, an informal NIH practice allowed faculty
members to do a "reasonable amount" of teaching while engaged
in NIH-sponsored experimentation, Dean Wegman said.
He feels that research and teaching are and must be com-
plementary. "Only occasionally can a man engage in one or the
"Thus there is a double administrative expense, in that
double records must be kept: one set for the grant-based part
of the salary and another set for the University's contribution;"
Dean Wegman noted.
In addition, the NIH policy is one of the reasons that four or
five federal auditors must be on campus continually, as they
must keep up with the "effort reports" which the University is
required to compile on each project. These reports assure the
NIH that its funds are not paying for teaching time.
The whole set-up, Dean Wegman feels, is "excessive ad-
"It is also unfortunate that the atmosphere of trust and
faith in the investigator is being clouded," he said.
He cited an example of the effect of the new teaching
