Democrats Seek
Romney Support
Ask Redistricting Along Present
Lines; Express Fear of Defeat
By The Associated Press
LANSING - Michigan's Democratic congressmen asked Gov.
George W. Romney yesterday .to support a redistricting plan that-
while basing districts on population-will preserve existing boundaries
as much as possible.
They stressed that extensive revamping of the present districts
could result in political defeat for incumbents' whose seniority in
Congress is, in their view, vital


Haiti leader
In for Life
Francois (Papa Doc) Duvalier
had himself installed yesterday as
president of Haiti for life.
"I am happy," he told army of-
ficers who went to the national
palace here to take a new oath of
"I am happy that you under-
stand it is necessary to join the
revolutionary crowd and come
here this morning to render hom-
age to the constitutional chief of
the armed forces in a new oath
of allegiance."

He got his M.D. in Haiti and did

The president's usually low-
pitched voice rose high as he told
the crowd he considered himself
an exceptional man, the kind of
man the country can produce only
once every 50 or 75 years.
The ceremony began with In-
formation Minister Paul Blanchet
saying Duvalier was acting in re-
sponse to public demonstrations
all around the country calling for
him to rule for life.
Blanchet claimed that after
these demonstrations, army offi-
cers began signing appeals to be
allowed to approve the popular
will and take a new oath to Du-
valier as life-time president.
Duvalier continued himself in
office as president a year ago
without the formality of elections.
This led to a suspension of re-
lations with the United States
and a cut-off of U. S. aid. Rela-
tiols were restored late in 1963.

to Michigan's welfare.
Six of the eight Democrats
representing Michigan in Congress
met with the Republican governor
to discuss plans for redistricting
as required by a United States
District Court decision.
Equal Population
A three-judge federal panel re-
cently ruled a congressional re-
districting plan passed last year
failed to meet a United States Su-
preme Court ruling that districts
should be as near equal in popu-
lation as "practicable."
United States Rep. John Din-
gell of Detroit told Romney it is
"a consensus viewpoint of con-
gressmen that redistricting should
be done with as little interference
as possible with existing bounda-
Romney emphasized that the
federal court ruling apparently
established population as the
principle for establishing districts.
10,000 Variance
In response to a question from
the governor, the Democrats in-
dicated they believe the legisla-
ture could permit a population
variance of up to 10,000 and stay
within the intent of the court rul-
In a joint statement, the Demo-
crats called for "compact, con-
tiguous districts of virtually equal
population-fairly arrived at."
The meeting provided the first
confrontation of Romney and po-
tential rival in the 1964 guber-
natorial race, United States Rep.
Neil Staebler, who served as chief
spokesman for the group.
Hare Proposals
Others present besides Staebler
and Dingell were Reps. Martha
Griffith, Charles Diggs, James
O'Hara, and John Lesinski.
Earlier, Secretary of State
James Hare proposed sweeping
changes in state election laws and
Sept. 8 as a tentative primary date
to meet the apportionment crisis.
In a 28-page timetable for leg-
islators, Hare said the Aug. 4 pri-
mary is virtually out of the ques-
tion and "some change is man-
datory" because of still-unresolved
questions on congressional and
legislative apportionment.
Logical Choice
He said Sept. 8 need not be re-
garded as a fixed date for the pri-
mary but might be the most log-
ical choice.
In all, Hare said, 23 changes are
necessary and 14 other dates
would be affected by the changes.
As Hare issued his outline,
House Republicans announced
plans to intorduce a congressional
redistricting bill of their own.
GOP Bill
The planr was announced by
House Speaker Allison Green (R-
Kingston), following an extended
meeting between GOP lawmakers
and Gov. Romney Monday.
Green said House Republican
leaders hoped to have a bill ready
for intorduction last night when
the House ended its Easter re-
cess-which would set it up for
poassible action by next week.
Following a second meeting with
Romney Tuesday, Green reported
that the question of shifting the
legislature's adojurnament date to
give Republicans complete power
in redistricting was discussed.
By adjourning early, Republi-
cans have pointed out, they could
gain the 90 days needed for ef-
fectiveness of the new districts
and avoid the need for legislative
action to provide "immediate ef-
fect," which requires a two-thirds
vote and therefore Democratic

To Review
Food Costs
WASHINGTON (P)- President
Lyndon B. Johnson asked Con-
gress yesterday to create a 15-
member commission to determine
why producers are receiving less
and consumers are paying more
for food products in the United
Sen. Gale W. McGee (D-Wyo),
chairman of a Senate commerce
subcommittee already checking
pricing and marketing practices
of the big food chains, prompt-
ly stated the new investigation
could become one of the most
important of the century.
Johnson indicated at his ranch
in Texas last Saturday that he
would ask for the legislation.
Bipartisan Commission
Following this up yesterday, he
sent letters to House Speaker John
W. McCormack (D-Mass) and
Senate President Pro Tern Carl
Hayden (D-Ariz) asking that the
bipartisan commission be set up.
He said it should study and ap-
praise the changes taking place
in the American food industry.
The letters made no reference to
the spread in prices between pro-
ducers and consumers.
But in Texas last Saturday he
had said: "We have some com-
modities today where the producer
is receiving 25, 30 per cent less
and we have the housewife who
is paying 25 or 30 per cent more
To Determine Changes
The commission would have five
members named by the House,
five by the Senate and five by
the President. Their job, the Presi-
dent said, would be to compile
sufficient information upon which
to base an informed judgment of
the effect of recent changes in
the food industry.

the giant ideological adversary of
the Soviet bloc.
They applauded enthusiastical-
ly. Perhaps they remembered it
was Peking that gave Moscow the
final push to use troops to smash
the Hungarian uprising of 1956.
"There are people in the world
who call themselves Communists
and Marxists-Leninists and at the
same time say that we should not
strive for a better life but make
revolution," Khrushchev said.
Revolution Not Enough
"But what would have happened
in Lenin's days when the peasants
and workers were called upon to
overthrow the rule of the capital-
ists if they had only been prom-
ised a revolution? That would not
have been enough for them. Pros-
perity is the only worthwhile
thing to struggle for."
Khrushchev, whorwas accom-
panied by his wife, Nina, and For-3

then told the workers to work
harder to overtake the West. He

Khrushchev a polite reception,
warmer than the one he received
in 1958, two years after the ill-
fated revolution. At that time, he

A Communist source said such a
meeting would be held sometime
next week somewhere outside
Budapest. But Western experts on
Eastern affairs paid little atten-
tion, saying such a meeting in
Hungary would lower Khrush-
chev's prestige.
Chinese Claim
United States
BUDAPEST ;)--A Red Chinese
spokesman accused Soviet Pre-
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev, al-
most to his face, yesterday of co-
operating with American imperial-
ism and uniting with Indian im-
perialism against China.
He added that Soviet help to
the Chinese Communist revolu-
tion was "nothing to boast about."
Can Hoa-nan, secretary general
of the Chinese delegation to the
Communist-controlled Congress of
Democratic Lawyers, now meeting
here, called in reporters covering
Khrushchev's Hungarian trip to
hear the blast.
It was the first time the Chi-
nese have hit hard at Khrushchev
when he was physically present in
the same city.
The congress here has erupted
into a tumultuous clash between
Chinese and Russians over the
issue of East-West coexistence.
The Chinese accused the Ris-
sians of siding with the United
States and the Soviets retorted
that the Chinese would never
have won their revolution without
Soviet help.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the
first of three articles on the inter-
national student politics, written by
a former international affairs vice-
presidentof the Canadian Union of
Collegiate Press Service
and Canadian University Press
The international student com-
munity is deeply divided. Two
tendencies, which reflect the basic
political division of the world to-
day, are vying for domination of
the student movement.
On the one hand there is the
International Student Conference,
representing what is essentially a
European tradition of evolutionary
social change, and seeking "to
eradicate all forms of oppression
-be it colonialism, totalitarianism
of East or West, imperialism, dic-
tatorship or racism."
On the other hand, there is the
International Union of Students,
representing variouus interpreta-
tions of the Leninist revolutionary
tradition, together with the more
radical non-Communist forces ini
the underdeveloped world.
IUS Came First
The IUS was the first postwar
international student organization.
Founded in 1946, in the general
desire for international friend-
ship and cooperation which would
preserve peace, it grouped at one
time the majority of national
unions of students of Europe and
America. It was established as a
cohesive body with a policy-mak-
ing Executive Committee and a
permanent secretariat in Prague,
Then the IUS came to be seen
as an instrument of outside forces
and eventually its political view-
point forced out most of its mem-
bers. In the late forties, two major
events raised the first doubts as
to its independence:
-The Czech coup d'etat, when
the IUS refused to protest against
the killings of Czech students who
resisted the Communist party's
takeover of the government.
-The explusion from the IUS
in 1950 of the Yugoslav Union of
Students when Tito's "indepen-
dence" was condemned by Stalin.
The continued silence of the
IUS during more recent events
such as the Hungarian revolution,
its refusal to denounce the. in-
vasion of Tibet and India by
China, while proclaiming every-
where else in the world its con-
stant fight for peace and against
colonialism and imperialism, have
indicated that the IUS is not in
fact an independent body.
It presently has a membership
of some 35 student organizations
from Eastern Europe, China and
Japan, and a number of associate
members who are also participants
in the ISC. Although representa-
tivity is not an essential for mem-
bership, it can be said that the
