Year-round operation for the University came a step closer to reali- lion t

priorities at the Regents meeting. passa
He put the University's plan for a full-year calendar on the Th
trimester system second to faculty salaries on the priority list of finisi
areas most in need of state funds. It was seventh in the University's Hous
budget request submitted to.Gov. George Romney in September. ident
Vice President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns said that ing o

items placed lower on the list but that increased funds will be dis- Ad

Aide Views
UN Council
"We in the United Nations Se-
curity Council believe in realism
and intend to carry out our be-
lief as long as this is not at the ex-
pense of high ideals," M. A. Vel-
lodi, director of the department
of political and security council
affairs of the UN, said last night.
Speaking before the banquet of
the Second International Arms
Control and Disarmament Sympo-
sium, Vellodi highlighted his views
on several issues now facing the
United Nations.
The main problems he dealt
with were the proposal for a per-
manent UN police force financed
by member nations, the plan for]
a separate international organiza-]
tion to be set up in order to deal
exclusively with the internation-
al police actions now undertaken
by the UN.
Also the argument over wheth-
er the United tSates and the
USSR are purposely bypassing the
UN in certain bilateral negotia-
An example of a realistic view,
he said, is that the question of a
permanent UN police force is best
dealt with in facing the fact that
such a force is not at present
practical. He cited the views of
UN Secretary-General U Thant
as a basis for his opinion.
Thant, he said, noted in a re-
cent address that a permanent
force is an institution for the fu-
ture, not for today. First, finan-
cial arrangements, that is, mone-
tary backing of such a force, are
not at present feasible because of
the financial crisis through which
the UN has been going in the last
three years. Only with more

To Allocate Increases
He said administrators will be-
gin work on deciding how to allo-
cate any increases in appropria-
tion, using Romney's recommen-
dation to the Legislature of - $44.0
million as a base.
This sum-which would be $5.8
million over this year's legislative
appropriation-fell only $3.6 mil-
lion short of the University's re-
quest and, with the full-year cal-
endar now second in priority, pre-
sumably would be sufficient to
finance the start of year-round
In his statement to the Regents,
President Hatcher noted Gov.
George Romney's $5.7 million cap-
ital outlay recommendation as a
significant step forward. He linked
the proposed increase with last
year's economic boom.
To Complete Payments
President Hatcher explained
that the funds outlayed for Uni-
versity buildings include $385,000
to complete payments on the Mu-
sic School Bldg., $1.87 million for
completion of the Fluids Engi-
neering Bldg. and $500,000 for the
continuance of hospital renova-
In addition funds have been a-
located for the planning and con-
struction of a dental building and
of Medical Science Unit II. An
allocation of $300,000 is to go to-
ward the remodeling of the East
Medical Bldg. for the future use
of the liteiary college after scien-
tific units move out.
. Speaking of Romney's advisory
"blue ribbon" education commit-
tee, President Hatcher termed its
report a "major breakthrough" in
thinking about the budget for
higher education.
Political 'Courage'
He said the governor displayed
political "courage" in increasing
the appropriation $21 million
when early recommendations of
his own staff had been for only
about a $12 million increase.
Although Romney's offer is less
than the $25 million boost seen as
a minimum by the "blue ribbon",
committee, President Hatcher did
note that, in contrast to the last
few years, a new and higher level
of support had been reached which
he hoped would continue.

Unversity President Harlan
Hatcher proposed at yesterday's
Regents meeting that a com-
memorative plaque be placed
on the steps of the Union,
where President John F. Ken-
nedy made his first public
statement regarding creation of
the Peace Corps.
Kennedy visited Ann Arbor
during a campaign talk in Oc-
tober, 1960. Regent Alan Soren-
son of Midland moved that the
proposal be accepted. He sug-
gested that any excess funds
from contributions be placed in

many excise taxes-at an estimat-.
ed revenue loss of $455 million,
compared with 1963.
Thecommittee had voted yes-
terday morning to repeal or ease
excise levies on luggage, jewelry,
furs and cosmetics. But just before
yesterday afternoon's final vote,
it reversed this action in a single,
9-8 ballot. It was .understood that
Johnson took a personal hand in
convincing nine Democrats that
the heavy prospective loss can not
be accepted.
The Finance Committee staff is
expected to take about a week in
preparing the Senate version of
the bill, which varies in many de-
tails from that voted by the House.
Senate debate will start late
next week or on Feb. 3 and ad-
ministration leaders will shoot for
Senate passage by or before the
start of the Lincoln's birthday re-
cess on Feb. 11.
The next objective will be a
reconciliation of differences be-
tween the Senate and House ver-
sions in time for final passage by
or before March 1 so a reduction
in withholding payments by wage
and salary earners can start by
that date.

Tsarapkin is expected to deliver

But his comments to reporters

Only the United States and
West Germany have shown much
enthusiasm for the seaborne force.
The Soviet position thus fore-
shadowed a probable deadlock on
three of Johnson's five points: the
non - dissemination of nuclear
weapons, a verified freeze of stra-
tegic nuclear delivery systems and
a controlled halt in the produc-
tion of fissionable materials for
weapons use.

RoIney BudgetGets Mixed Reactions

Gov. George Romney's proposed
$622.4 million budget was greeted
with mixed feelings by members
of both political parties in Lansing
Democrats in the Senate and
House gave somewhat limited
praise to the governor's program,
expressing some reservations as
to its chances for success. Reac-
tions were much stronger, how-
ever, among the Republicans.
Speaker of the House Allison
Green (R-Kingston) gave Rom-
ney's plan a strong boost, and
said that he could see "no prob-
lems getting at least $600 mil-
lion. However, above this figure,
personal interests may enter the
picture, thus jeopardizing total
success for the budget."
Thayer Agrees
Senate Majority Leader Stan-
ley G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor)
agreed that there will probably
be "substantial approval of the
spending program, without dras-
tic reduction or increase."
Sen. Raymond Dzendzel (D-
Detroit) said that he is whole-
heartedly in favor of the high ap-
propriation for higher education
the governor proposes in his bud-
get. He noted, though, that the
spending program may have some
problem passing because of the
"old-line Republicans. This is
quite a jump for them to take."
Last year's budget request was

for $547 million, although the final
authorization was for $550 mil-
lion, a figure still well below this
year's request.
House Democratic Leader Jo-
seph Kowalski (Detroit) agreed
with Dzendzel that the governor's

Chain Reaction

Regents Accept ISA Seat,
Clarification for SGC Plan
The Regents yesterday accepted two changes in the Student
Government Council Plan, one of which expands Council to include
the president of the International Students Association, Isaac Ada-
lemo, Grad, as an ex-officio member.
The other change amends Council's bylaws by clarifying the
composition of its committees. Recently there has been controversy
over whether faculty members'
may sit on "student committees"
such as the Membership Tribunal.
The amendment states that "an 1 a d ie
SGC board or committee shall be
any committee responsible to SGC.
Unless otherwise stated its mem- N ">
bers do not represent any par-
ticular onstituency."
Both amendments were ap- .
proved by SGC Nov. 30, but could
not be implemented immediately;
because any alteration of the
Plan - Council's constitution - is
subject to Regental sanction.
Endorsing the addition of the
ISA ex-officio, Lewis commented
keeping with our desire to mold

budget will probably get Demo-
cratic support, and will have its
toughest time in the Republican
caucuses. Kowalski said that the
major question in his mind is
"whether Romney will fight for
this budget."
Lesinski Doubts
Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski said
that he doubted that the state
Legislature would approve Rom-.
ney's program because "the Legis-
lature is not likely to take two
steps this session on the things
it refused to take even one step
on before."
Rep. Carroll C. Newton (R-Del-
ton), a senior member of the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee, expressed sharp criticism of
the governor's plan. He said that
he thinks it goes too far, noting
that "Romney is asking too much
for education. I'm not opposed to
some one-shot increases in this
area, but I'm afraid I would be op-
posed to those that would put the
state back in the hole."
Thayer said that there might be
some pressures to cut back the
proposed $21 million higher edu-
cation appropriation, and raise
college tuitions. He noted, how-
ever, that "any increase of this
type should be coupled with schol-
arship increases."
According to Romney, however,
the proposed fiscal plan would
leave a surplus in the treasury,
even though the budget shows the
state spending more than it takes
in. This is due to the surplus of
approximately' $30 million which
by the end of this fiscal year the
governor anticipates will more
than cover the deficit in his pro-
posed budget.
Green said that budgeting a
surplus is a wise move on the gov-
ernor's part because it will guar-
antee a surplus next year, thus
keeping the state in good financial

Seeking Plan
For Merger
Board Cites Delay
Which Necessitates
Co-educational Start
The Michigan Union Board of
Directors last night voted unani-
mously to include women in all
levels of its student activities
The board said that setbacks in
plans for a merger between the
Union and the Women's League
had pushed the date of a merger
back far enough so that "it is not
in the best interests of the Uni-
versity to delay the beginning of
a coeducational activities program
any longer."
In its statement, the board did
not rule out the possibility of a
merger with' the League in the
future. It stated that "the addi-
tion of women in student activi-
ties will provide the necessary
first step to any future merger of
the Union and the -League andl
the Union wishes to continue dis-
cussion with the League."
'Surprised' at Move
However, Women's League Pres-
ident Gretchen Groth, '64, said she
was "surprised" at the move and
added, "I hope they are sincere in
planning to continue work on the
"The League was thinking in
terms of a merger of both organi-
zations, rather than having one
organization become coeducational
by simply admitting members of
the opposite sex."
Miss Groth did not think that
the League Board of Governors
would be any more receptive to
an early merger because of the
Union's action.
Represents Application
Union President Raymond Rus-
nak, '64, said that the Union'
Board's action represented an ap-
plication of the philosophy of co-
educational student activities ex-
pressed ,in the Robertson Report
of last year. The report, which
outlined a plan for merging the
two organizations, has been under
cbnsideration since May despite
Regental criticism.
He noted that under the Union's
present constitution no woman
could be elected to senior posts.
"We do not anticipate having
to make any revisions at this time
since it is unlikely that a woman
would petition for a senior office
now. However, should the situation
arise, the board would take ap-
propriate action."
Norman Peslar, '64E, Union ad-
ministrative vice-president, said
he felt the Union's personnel situ-
ation would be aided by the inclu-
sion of women. Miss Groth, how-
ever, did not think the League's
situation would be hurt in this
Asks Revision
To Streamline
Unit's Set-up
The Michigan Union Board O
Directors approved principles for
revision of its own structure but
delayed final passage pending a
final wording of the structure by
the Union's senior officers.
The plan basically approved is
intended to "streamline" the
board and make it more able to
devote itself to financial and ma-
jor policy matters.
The number of board members
would be reduced from 19 to 11,
with the new board consisting of

Officials are now hopeful that
