The "big three" state universities "definitely" will suffer
some operations funds cuts in the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, Sen. Stanley Rozycki (D-Detroit) affirmed early this
morning. He said the committee yesterday considered the follow-
ing cuts: $800,000 for the University. $1.2 million for Michigan
State University and $140,000 for Wayne State University.
Though these may not be the final figures, the University and
MSU will receive larger cutbacks than WSU, Rozycki said.
The Senate Appropriations committee will likely make a modest
rnd across the board cut in Gov. George Romney's operating budget
request for higher education, Lansing sources indicated last night.
Going into final stages of consideration the Romney capital
outlay request for the University had not been changed. The Uni-
versity has hoped for an addition to the Romney recommendation
to finance the plans, for an architecture and design school building
on North Campus.
Replying to reports that the University operating budget was
cut $800,000 and that Michigan State University's was cut $1,000,000,

Board Sends
School Aid Bill'
To Legislature
The House Ways and Means
Committee last night passed a bill
to set up a state scholarship fund
which was proposed by Rep. Gil-
bert E. Bursley (R-Ann Arbor).
Since it already has the ap-
proval of the House Education
Committee, it will reach the floor
of the House today.
The bill calls for a $300,000
'fund to provide 500 scholarships
each year to cover tuition costs
up to $600. The scholarships would
be available on a competitive basis
to Michigan high school graduates
for use at any public or private
college in Michigan.
"The basic objective of the leg-
islation," Bursley said last night,
"is to help private colleges share
in educating the college students
of the next decade."
Attracts Students
The bill will work chiefly to
attract students to Michigan's
private colleges because students
will take advantage of the full
$600 instead of using only half of
it for state college tuition, Bursley I

Neither man had any immediate
comment on yesterday's ruling or
on their plans.
There is no set penalty in con-
tempt convictions but, buried in a
long footnote in the majority
opinion, was an apparent hint to
the circuit court to deal leniently
with Johnson and Barnett.
The court's majority in the'
Barnett-Johnson case stressed that
only one issue was up for decision
-whether Johnson and Barnett
were constitutionally entitled to be
tried b a jury, rather than by the
circuit court.
Four of the justices generally
regarded as the court's consistent
liberals-Chief Justice Earl War-
ren, and Justices Hugo L. Black,
William O. Douglas and Arthur J.
Goldberg-voted for a jury trial.
These four often have been crit-
icized by segregationists such as
Barnett for their positions on
civil rights cases. But court ob-
servers saw nothing inconsistent
in their position yesterday, since,
as liberals, they are sticklers for
individual rights without regard,
to the persons involved.
In another case with racial over-
tones, the court struck down un-:
animously breach of peace con-
victions of 5 Negro students ar-
rested in 1960 in a racial demon-
stration in front of city hall in
Rock Hill, S.C.
The court said the Negroes as-
sembled in a peaceful, orderly
fashion in front of the city hall to
protest segregation.
It added that no violence or
threat of violence occurred, and
traffic was not disturbed. It cited
earlier decisions that held that;
convictions can not stand upon
evidence that showed no more
than the peaceable expression of
views contrary to those of the
majority of the community.

RIO DE JANEIRO-Amid reports of several thousand arrests in
a drive against Communists and suspected Communists, Brazilian
banks and stock exchanges showed signs of renewed confidence in the
nation's economy yesterday.
In further action, the new government took "control" over all
outgoing and incoming communications. Military units were set up in

cable offices to check the dis-
patches to and from foreign cor-!
respondents and news agencies.
In the drive against the Com-
munists, the police reported find-
ing several Communist cells in the
rural area with arms, propaganda
and large sums in dollars..
The nation's currency, the cru-
ziero, which had fallen from 300
to 2000 to $1 during overthrown
President Joao Goulart's two and
one-half years in office, rallied
sharply on the open money market
in Rio de Janeiro. Yesterday's
quotations were 1300 to $1.
The cruzeiro was traded for the
first time since banks and ex-
change houses were ordered closed
down in the midst of last week's
The United States renewed its
offers of financial help after

Nehru Claims

break of the China-India frontier

As part of a "Profile of Labor ,"
the Michigan Union and the eco-

row in the Michigan Union Ball-
Prof. Ackley, chairman of the.

until 1961, is now on leave from
the University as a member of
President Lyndon B. Johnson's

On April 22, the Union and the

Prof. Lampman is presently work-

Habel, 995, Democrat Mrs. Fay
Kincaid, 639.
The issue of the First Ward ap-
peared to be acontroversy over
a brouchure distributed by Re-
publicans in the ward. Mrs. Burns
said previous to election time, "My
opponents attempt to portray me
as against a fair housing ordin-
ance. The fact is that I was work-
ing for a fair housing ordinance
even before I was first elected
but I have been working for one
which helped families as well as
apartment dwellers."
The last time the Democrats
even approached this success in
elections was in 1959 when they
won three seats on Council.
The present change in political
distribution is the largest vari'ance
to ever exist and may promote
vast differentiation in the Council
legislative process.
Amendment number 1 received
a "yes" vote of 7909 to 5676 op-
posed. This amendment allows for
the reduction in size of the pres-
ent Ann Arbor "dry island." It
extends liquor-by-the-glass privi-
leges to the eastern part of the
city, generally east of Platt Road.
The main campus of the Univer-
sity, however, will remain within
the bounds of the "dry island."
The proposed second amend-
ment, which would have abolished
spring city elections, was nar-
rowly defeated. The final results
talleyed: Yes-6246, No-6854.
The last amendment, allowing
the City Council to "abolish, re-
organize or merge" city depart-
ments and offices without a direct
vote of the people was accepted
by a vote of 8731 to 4205. The
results of both this amendment
and the preceeding one provided
more unsuspected results for city
administrators. They were over-
whelmed by the margin of victory
on the latter measure.
Warm weather and clear skies
evidently added to the electoral
turnout, as approximately 13,000
voters came to the polls.
The Young Democrat Club Work-
ed closely with the regular party
in this election. Michael Grondin,
'66, president of YD's, told The
Daily, "The YD Club is proud to
have had a part in the successes
of the Ann Arbor Democratic par-
ty. It is extremely gratifying to

Idea Denotes Effort
To Strengthen SACUA
Plan Would Establish 'Assembly';
Give Greater Policy-Making Voice
Acting Managing Editor
A faculty committee yesterday released a proposal calling
for sweeping changes in the University Senate structure.
The proposal, submitted to the Senate for discussion by
its University freedom and responsibility subcommittee, repre-
sents an effort to reconstitute and strengthen the Senate's
executive organ, the Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs. The aim is to provide the faculty with a stronger
voice in University policy-making circles. Specifically, the
committee's report calls for a

representative structure built
along these lines:
Retain 'U' Structure
-The University Senate, com-
posed of all tenure faculty, would
be retained as it now exists. This
body, empowered in the Regents'
bylaws to speak for the faculty,
has been hampered by the infre-
quency of, and poor attendance at,
its meetings.
-To provide a more potent rep-
resentative for the faculty, the
Senate would establish a Univer-
sity Assembly, composed of 65
members elected at-large for
three-year terms. "The Assembly
i shall be authorized to speak as a
representative body of the ,Senate
on matters of University interest,"
the subcommittee's report suggests.
The innovation here is that the
Senate would be delegating its rep-
resentative authority to a smaller
group which would be convened
monthly instead of semi-annual-
-The present 20-member SAC-
UA would be replaced by a new
SACUA composed of nine mem-'
bers. It would be "the executive
arm of the Senate and of the As-
sembly," implementing the groups''
actions and serving and "the'
agency through which consulta-
tions between the faculty and the
Regents, the President and other
executive officers ... regularly oc-
Missing from the proposal re-
leased yesterday is a key section
which the freedom and responsi-
bility subcommittee had discussed
and which may be added to the
plan later.
The missing provision would
establish a mechanism for joint
appointment of the new SACUA's
members by the faculty, the Re-
gents and the University Presi-
dent. The Assembly would submit
a slate of nominees to the Presi-
dent and the Regents, with its
choices listed in order of pref-
erence. From this prioritized list,
the President and Regents would
pick the members of SACUA:
Same Method
This method is currently used
in selecting other important Uni-
versity committees, notably execu-
tive committees in some schools
and colleges.' Traditionally, the
administration selects the first-
choice names on the lists sub-
mitted by the faculty.
Such a procedure provides a
faculty voice which is recognized
and appointed by the adminis-
tration and Regents, but whose
composition is substantially deter-
mined by the faculty and thus is
responsive to faculty opinion.
This "rather controversial" pro-
vision was omitted from the pres-
ent proposal so that something
would be ready for presentation at
the April 13 Senate meeting. the
last one until fall, a faculty source
Prof. Claude Eggertsen, chair-
man of the subcommittee, said at
this meeting he will simply "move
that the Senate resolve that a
series of discussions of this pro-


Hear Speech
By Dobrynin
DETROIT (A') - T h e Soviet
ambassador to the United States
said yesterday he hopes that any
time the hot line between the
Kremlin and White House rings it
will be a- wrong number.
"We all hope for a state 'of
peace so each of us would be able
to sleep well and not worry about
the hot line ringing," Ambassador
Anatoly F. Dobrynin told the Eco-
nomic Club of Detroit.
Ambassador Dobrynin said, "If
the American people want to find
solutions to the problems which
divide us you will find us ready.
If you are not prepared to move
towards better relations, we can
Dobrynin was granted special
permission by the State Depart-
ment to visit Detroit which nor-
mally is off bounds for Russians,
Part of his speech to more than
100,0 club members including many
of Detroit's industrial leaders was
a recapitulation of Russia's eco-
nomic and agricultural strength
He said that while Russia trails
the U.S. in some fields, notably
chemical and electrical, the gap
was being narrowed constantly.
Dobrynin listed some areas in
which U.S.-Soviet relations have
become more friendly, but he cau-
tioned, "one must say frankly
that U.S.-Soviet relations leave
much to be desired."
Dobrynin also urged a reduc-
tion of Soviet and Western mili-
tary forces in Germany saying no
good could come of the daily di-
rect confrontation of the two
armed camps.
He described the shooting down
of a U.S. plane by the Soviets over
East Germany on March 10 as
"unfortunate" but added the U.S.
should not send its air training
missions so near the border.
"We don't want such incidents
-we don't want our pilots train-
ing near your borders-we train
them elsewhere," he said.
