JAKARTA, Indonesia - United
States Atty. Gen. Robert F. Ken-
nedy met with President Sukarno
for two hours last night on the
Malaysia crisis and said he be-
lieved he and the Indonesian lead-
er had reached general agreement.
He spoke with Sukarno and
Deputy Prime Minister Subandrio
as a mediator in the conflict that'
has pitted Indonesia and the
Philippines against the infant
Federation of Malaysia.
An I n d o n e s i a n government
spokesman said later that formal

sia dispute. KOTI is Indonesia's
top policy decision making body.
Seeking to promote Indonesia-
Philippine-Malaysia summit talks,
Kennedy said he will have a fuller
statement today and that he un-
derstands Sukarno also will issue

Main Function
One of the main functions of
the institute is selecting, placing
and supervising the more than
3500 foreign students from more'
than 80 countries who study in
the United States annually. Selec-
tion is made through bi-national
committees, which receive appli-
cations and hold interviews and
send applications on to approp-
riate United States institutions,
Davis said. Also, the institute gives
an intensive training program to
about 700 foreign students as they
enter the United States.
Screens Students
Another purpose of IIE is to
screen United States students who
apply to go overseas on grants
such as Rhodes or Fulbright
After this term, he will move to
New York, where the institute has
recently completed headquarters

$.6 Billion
Budget Set
By Romney
Calls Record Outlay
'Lean But Muscular'
LANSING W) - G o v. George
Romney yesterday gave the Legis-
lature a record proposed budget
of $622.4 million for 1964-65,
terming it a "lean but muscular"
plan tailored to meet needs while
using less money than is available.
In a detailed account of the
program outlined in his Jan. 9
"State of the State" message,
Romney called for sharply in-
creased spending in education and
mental health.
At the same time, however, he
recommended that $24 million in
surplus funds be budgeted for the
coming fiscal year, $19 million of
which would go into a Michigan
"future fund" for capital outlay.
The other $5 million would be
budgeted as general fund surplus,
Romney said, as evidence that
Michigan no longer is in the bad
financial condition of recent years.
He said his budget, "a record in
scope as well as in size," is de-
signed to "close a gap between
needs and services that resulted
in part from Michigan's fiscal
"A surplus will be proof to the
people of Michigan and the nation
that Michigan has regained its fis-
cal integrity and once again is the
dynamic, progressive forward-
looking state we have been histor-
ically," said the governor.
His total figure of $622.4 million
is some $72 million higher than
the $550 million which the Legis-
lature authorized for the current
fiscal year.
The proposed new total includes
general fund increases of nearly
$70 million for education and
$13 million for mental health op-
erations, both of which Romney
has described as areas of prime
These two spending items -
$273.7 million for education, $98.7
for mental health - comprise
about 60 per cent of the total
The education total includes
$131 million for higher educa-
tion, $94.4 million for state school
aid, and $32 million for capital
In welfare spending - always
one of the three largest items in
the budget-Romney asked an in-
crease of less than one per cent,
to a total of $99.3 million.
In a special welfare message
last week, Romney outlined a plan
for greater state participation in
federal programs he said would
bring in some $14.9 million and
ease the pressure on local and
state welfare funds.
A key feature of Romney's
budget is a "pay-as-you-grow"
capital outlay program which pro-
poses spending $51 million in
1964-65 for state building and ex-

$44Mil1ion Sum'
Recommends $21.5 Million Increase
In State Higher Education Funds
By The Associated Press
A record $44 million appropriation for the University was
- recommended to the Legislature by Gov. George Romney
The request falls $3.6 million under the $47.6 million the
University asked for, though it is $5.8 million more than it
got last year.
Romney requested a total operating expenditure for state
colleges and universities of $131.3 million-an increase of
$21.5 million over 1963. He also asked for a record capital out-
lay appropriation for them of $27 million.
Both requests, however, fall short of the "rock-bottom"
expenditures recommended in the interim report of the Citi-
,zens' Committee on Higher

Anonymous Note Threatens Barber


Malaysian Prime Minister Tun-
ku Abdul Rahman yesterday mod-
ified his conditions for a summit
meeting, saying he would not in-
sist that Indonesia and the Phil-
ippines first recognize Malaysia.
But he said he sticks to his de-
mand for a truce in the unde-
clared guerrilla war along the Ma-
laysia-Indonesia border in Borneo.
Kennedy and Subandrio, who is
also Indonesia's foreign minister,
emerged from the meeting togeth-
er. Both were sober and unsmil-
ing. Subandrio said nothing about
this windup of a tour that had
previously taken Kennedy to To-
kyo, Manila and the Malaysian
capital, Kuala Lumpur.
United S t a t e s Ambassador
Howard P. Jones, who attended
with Kennedy, said he was en-
"There were full and frank dis-
cussions," he said, "but the talks
went very well."
50-50 Chance
Other United States diplomats
following the situation closely are
giving the truce about a 50-50
chance of succeeding. Even if the
effort fails, there is hope that the
next step would not be a shooting
war between Indonesia and Ma-
laysia which has the support of
Britain, Australia and New Zea-
land and its defense effort.
A foreign ministry spokesman,
Ganis Harsono, said that there
will be an informal discussion be-
tween Kennedy and Sukarno aft-
er the morning meeting of KOTI.
There was no immediate expla-
tion from United States sources
why Kennedy was cutting short
his visit to Indonesia.
Economic Boycott

tion is an arch-foe of Malaysia,

British colonies with an economic
boycott and encouragement of
guerrillas raiding its states in Bor-

In another civil rights incident,
John Logothetis, owner of Thomp-
son's Restaurant, 221 N. Main,
denied charges of alleged dis-
crimination in hiring practices
leveled by the Ann Arbor chapter
of the Congress on Racial Equal-
Taylor said that the picketers
blocked the barber shop's entrance
and forced him to close.
Denies Charges
However, a CORE spokesman
denied the blocking charge. "Tay-
lor keeps the door of his shop
locked and opens it for each white
customer. When a Negro knocks
on the door, the barbers ignore
him and he is forced to stand in
the doorway waiting for a hair-
cut," he said.
The CORE group has been
picketing the shop for several
weeks because of the shop's re-
fusal to cut Negroes' hair.
'Everett Lawson, one of Taylor's
barbers, was ordered by Municipal
Court Judge Francis O'Brien Mon-
day to stand trial next month for
violation of a state public accom-
modations law.
Taylor said that Lawson did not
know how to cut a Negro's hair.
Taylor also stated that he could
not cut Negroes' hair because he
was "too nervous."
The note, which Taylor turned
over to the police, stated that a

dozen individuals "are watching
and waiting at various points
around your place.
"These are the 'tough' boys of
this racial insurrection," the note
Tuesday a pop bottle filled with
kerosenewas thrown through the
shop's window. Taylor also said
that someone punctured a hole in
the shop's ceiling.
Meanwhile, Logothetis expressed
his disgust with the CORE group
"because of the organization's un-
reasonable demands and attempt
to formulate the hiring policies of
my restaurant."
"I hired the fourth Negro for
part time work strictly to show
CORE I do not discriminate. I
admit, with only three Negroes
working, it may have looked like
a case of discrimination.
Unjust Interference
"Then, the day after I hired the
waiter, CORE sent me a letter
demanding that I hire other Negro
help. The letter contained dates,
or deadlines, and specific num-
bers of Negroes I was supposed to
hire," Logothetis said.
"It's just as if CORE is owner
and manager of the restaurant.

"Besides, since I have owned
this restaurant (one year) there
has been only one Negro girl who
has asked for employment. And
she was the test case associated
with CORE," Logothetis continued.
However, the CORE group
claimed that last October a Ne-
gro applied for a job as waitress
and was told the job was filled.
The next day, according to CORE,
a white girl with less experience
was offered the job.
CORE Cites Bad Faith
It further claimed that the res-
taurant "negotiated in bad faith
for three months." It asked that a
Negro waitress be employed either
full or part/time, since the Negro
waiter hired shortly before the
picketing began works only eight
hours a week.
In a printed notice the res-
taurant is currently giving to its
customers, the management says,
"We have always employed Ne-
groes and will continue to do so
if they meet our qualifications.
"CORE demands that we hire a
Negro even if he is less qualified
than other applicants. We refuse
to meet such demands in spite of
organized pressure."

a decisive victory by his militant African Nationalists.

Education. Romney's requests
fall $4 million below the $135
million recommended operat-
ing expenditure and $22 mil-
lion under the $49 million
capital outlay figure.
The University would get $5.2
million of the capital outlay total,
of which $1.5 million would go
to start construction on a Dental
School Bldg. and $1.2 million to
begin the Medical Science Bldg.,
Unit II. Other funds include
$500,000 to complete renovation
of University Hospital, as well as
funds to furnish the Music School
Bldg., to complete construction of
the Fluids Engineering Bldg. on
North Campus and to remodel the
East Medical Bldg.
The overall request was lower
than that recommended by the
Democratic State Central Com-
mittee. They urged an appropria-
tion figure equal to the requests
of the 10 state-supported colleges
and universities-$144 million.
State Superintendent of Educa-
tion Lynn Bartlett was critical of
the recommended $10 per student
increase in state support to com-
munity colleges. Bartlett had ask-
ed for $26 increase, while the col-
leges themselves asked an increase
of $76, to bring total state support
per student to $300.
While the University's operat-
ing expenditures are up by 15.3
per cent, Michigan State Univer-
sity's are up by 22.6 per cent to
a record $39.6 million. Romney
said this "is a reflection of the in-
crease in students at MSU." He
added that "MSU is in a heavy
outlay period and the big bulk of
the University's will come next
MSU is expecting full-time en-
rollment next year to hit 30,497, a

Niehuss Encouraged
Terming Gov. George Romney's
appropriation recommendation a
"significant breakthrough," Exe-
cutive Vice-President Marvin L.
Niehuss said last night that if
passed, it will permit the Univer-
sity to "start toward remedying
the deficiencies in our operations"
which have accumulated over the
last six years.
In that period, from the fiscal
year 1957-58, the Legislature has
appropriated funds totaling rough-
ly $50 million less than the sum of
the University's requests. Rom-
ney's recommended .figure would
represent the first major per-
centage increase in the Univer-
sity's budget since 1956.
"This budget will allow the Uni-
versity to provide for the large en-
rollment increase coming next
fall," Niehuss said.
He tempered his optimism, how-
ever, with the comment that the
$44 million still falls $3.6 million
under the University's budget re-
quest for the coming fiscal year.
"We will obviously have to leave
urgent needs unmet," he said.
Top priority, Niehuss declared,
must be given to raising faculty
and staff salaries and staff ad-
ditions. Moreover, "it is my hope
that we will be able to make some
start toward year-round opera-
tion." While no decisions have
been made, the vice-president in-
dicated this item will be "fairly

tails of a merger plan. Gretchen

to present a merger plan to their
respective boards for implementa-
tion this year.

Hart Emphasizes Non-Defens


"Whether or not we move to-
ward an era of disarmament;there
are non-defense needs awaiting
solution now," Senator Philip A.
Hart (D-Mich) said last night in
speaking before the Second Inter-
national Arms Control and Dis-
armament Symposium here at the
Hart noted that problems on the
local level should be taken care of
with the same vigor with which
the United States is now embark-
ing on the moon race. He said that
the many non-military needs de-
serve a much higher priority than
they are now getting.
Hart suggested that his pro-
posed commission on the applica-
tion of technology to community
needs would be one major step in
solving both the non-military
needs and providing a smooth

would study the needs of the com-
munities and later provide for
many of these needs. "This would
balance national and local inter-
ests," Hart added.
Since more than 50 per cent of
all scientists are now working in
defense areas they could assume
dual roles and serve both defense
and non-defense needs. "I think
that these research complexes
might logically be turned loose
on our pressing terrestial needs,"
Hart said.
"The more immediate concern is
the communities," Hart comment-
ed. "Would not it be better to
serve the community first than go
to the moon?" he asked. Certainly
the problems of air pollution,
community d e v e 1 o p m e n t, and
other community needs are im-
portant, he added.

Hart said that as the defense
department revises its contract
awards from one area to another,
the areas that loose the contracts
"suffer as if there actually were
disarmament." He emphasized
that the proposals will be passed
either this session of Congress or
in one not too far in the future
since there must be a transition
made from defense to non-defense
Government Initiation
The initial steps in making the
transition must come from the
government since it is the govern-
ment that has the pools of large
resources at its control.
Hart noted that both his own
bill and the one proposed by
Humphrey would identify the
problem areas and "lead toward
resolving the problems." He noted
that the Senate would probably
