A student advisory committee
will be named sometime next week
to work with Associate Dean .Bur-
ton D. Thuma of the literary col-
lege on plans for: the new resi-
dential college.
"I'd like student advice on just
about all the problems which the
residential college proposal will
face," Dean Thuma said.
The committee will have 10 to
12 members, chosen to represent
the campus' as well as. possible.,
While selection will not necessar-
ily be according to student organ-
izations, Dean Thuma noted that
he would like students from all
years, from men's and women's
residence halls, from the literary
college steering committee and
perhaps from Student Govern-
ment Council, as well as from
other sources.
Planning Running
Dean Thuma was named last
week by Vice-President for Aca-
demic Affairs Roger W. Heyns to
direct the planning and running
of the residential college. The Re-
gents approved the appointment
last Friday.
The student committee will be

Law School 'Satisfactory'
Virtually total satisfaction with the Law School was expressed
by The Committee of Vtsitors, a group of prominent men in the
law profession who recently evaluated the school, Associate Dean
of the Law School Charles W. Joiner said yesterday.
The committee, composed of 33 almuni, lawyers and judges- from
10 states, reported only mastery of the English language as wanting

>among lawyers. Members of the
committee were, however, pleased
to note that the Law School is
experimenting in several different
ways to overcome this problem,
Prof. Joiner said.
Set up by action of the Law
School, the group convened for
its second annual meeting last
October to examine the Univer-
sity's legal education.
Students, Faeulty
Visiting classes and talking to
faculty and students, the commit-
tee's attention was directed to-
ward discussion of the quality of
the student body, faculty contri-
butions to scholarship, financial
aid to students, curriculum re-
vision, shortcomings of graduated
students and "The Michigan Law
Review," a Law School publica-
The committee reported that
the quality of the student body is
high. More than one-half of the
students place in the top 13 per
cent in national rankings ,as re-
corded by standard tests given to
those persons applying to law,
schools. The committee felt such a
high ranking was due to a re-
sponsible admissions policy, Prof.
Joiner noted.
The committee was informed
that members of the faculty had
publised 26rbooks and more than

ulty, libraries, location and selec-
tion standards for students and
It will normally not meet to-
gether with the 10-man faculty
committee to be set up to work
with Dean Thuma.
"However, I might bring the
two committees together occas-
sionally if they want to argue out
differences of opinion," Dean
Thuma noted.
About the only matter the stu-
dent group will probably not dis-
cuss will be the administrative or-
ganization of the new self-con-
tained living and learning unit.
Dean Thuma hopes that the
student committee will begin work
this year and during the summer,
though the latter period will
probably be taken up mostly with
the gathering of facts concerning
the new college.
The literary college faculty and
executive committee and Vice-
President Heyns will be kept in-
formed of the progress of the two
"I anticipate that we will have
a fairly free hand, even though
we will not be able to stray too
far from the guidelines which the
faculty and Regents have set up
for the college," Dean Thuma said.
The literary college faculty has
set down the following principles
for the residential college:
Intergrated Living
-It would be a small, self-
contained educational unit, geared
to a liberal arts curriculum and
integrating eating, living and
classroom facilities.
-The students in it could take
advantage of the total resources
of the campus.
-Professors for the 1000-2000
voluntarily-chosen students in the
residential college would be full-
fledged literary college personnel.
To Open Files
To Cadid ates
WASHINGTON (W) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson opened the ad-
ministration's intelligence files
yesterday to Republicans who
might be nominated to challenge
him for the White House. .
He said he wants to talk with
them personally to help chart "the
wise course" in foreign affairs. "I
want all the men in the- opposi-
tion party to know all the facts
that dictate the decisions that in-1
volve national interests," the Pres-
ident told a news conference.
A spokesman for Sen. Margaret
Chase Smith (R-Maine) said she
would accept the offer, but Sen.,
Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz) wast-
ed no time in labeling the offer
"basically unwise."
In a letter to Secretary of State
Dean Rusk, he said the proposal
looks to him like "an off-handE
political gesture."
He accused the Pentagon of
"throwing around" top secret in-
formation for political purposes
and the State Department of sup-
pressing data about the war in
Viet Nam.
He added that briefings on na-
tional security could bind candi-
dates to silence and thus stifle
campaign debate on the nation's
foreign policy.
At Johnson's behest, Rusk sent
invitations to six Republicans and
a dissident Democrat to hear in-e
telligence briefings from him, Sec-1
retary of Defense Robert S. McNa-
mara and Director John A. Mc-I
Cone of the Central Intelligence

The general chairmen of Soph
Show are searching for a theatre
in which to hold next year's per-
formance, "Fiorello," since the
Association of Producing Artists
has booked Lydia Mendelssohn



for most of the fall dates.
The APA had been given first
priority for the use of Lydia Men-
delssohn by the University, with
which it first contracted. The APA
booked the theatre through Nov.
16, leaving only the weekend of
Nov. 21 for the use of Soph Show,
Musket and Gilbert and Sullivan
Society. Musket has decided to
move its performance to the
spring, but this is an impossibil-
ity for both Soph Show and G&S.
' Since G&S gives both a fall and
spring performance, the show
cannot possibly hold two per-
formances in the spring,
Very Difficult
Robert Sideman, '67, general
chairman of. Soph Show, feels
that his group has been put into
a very difficult and unfair posi-
"We have been given the op-
tion of putting our performance
on at Trueblood Auditorium, mov-
ing it up to the spring, or taking
the weekend of Dec. 3 in Lydia

unfeasible for a number of rea-

cal, Trueblood Auditorium cannot
easily be utilized, because the stage
does not lend itself to this type

cannot hope to retain this spirit
until next spring, since work has
already begun on the performance.
-"The weekend of Dec. 3 is

have difficulty getting students to
"We are under the impression
that G&S has been given the
weekend of Nov. 21 for Lydia Men-
delssohn, so we must now decide
among one of these inferior al-
ternatives," Sideman continued.
Not Informed
Deanne Yek; '67, the other gen-
eral chairman of Soph Show, said
that what upset Soph Show was
the fact that it was not informed
previously of the APA's priority.
"If we had been informed be-
forehand, we might have been
able to choose a play more adapt-
able to Trueblood," Miss Yek
"We also do not understand,"
she continued, "why the APA can-
not do ,some of its performances
in Trueblood, which it did last
year, in order to accommodate
the three student activities."
Both Miss Yek and Sideman are
disturbed about the fact that the
administrators have taken the in-
itiative in giving priority to the
APA above student activities.
Paul Malboeuf, '65, general
chairman of Musket, is not as, up-
set about the situation. "The Of-
fice of Student Affairs agreed to
contract the APA on certain
terms, namely that it would have
priority for scheduling, and I
think there is enough demand for
the APA to warrant some incon-
veniencing of other student organ-
izations," he said.
"Also, I feel that it is ridiculous
to have two student dramatic pro-
ductions in the fall, and the pres-
ent situation has forced us to
alter tradition along these lines,"
.he concluded.
Equal Consideration
Nancy Freitag, '65, president of
League Council, which sponsors.
Soph Show, is opposed to Mal-
boeuf's viewpoint. "The APA
should be given equal considera-
tion for Lydia Mendelssohn with
Soph Show, Musket and Gilbert
and Sullivan, and not hold the
special position it now retains. Its
schedule should be more flexible
in order to give'student groups
consideration," she said.
According to Vice-President for{
Student Affairs James A. Lewis,
chairman of the calendaring com-
mittee, the APA cannot move
some of its performances to the

spring, as it did last year, because
it is under contract to play in an-
other community at that time for
next year.
Lewis said the calendaring com-
mittee feels that "since last year
APA shifted to the spring, al-
though it didn't want to, in order
to give these three groups. their
performances in the fall, this year
these three groups should give
the APA the same consideration."
The final decision on calendar-
ing will not be made until Mon-
day, when the calendaring com-
mittee will give official approval
to next year's calendar.

this indicative of the quantity of

r.Active Among Peers
Prof. Joiner said the commit-
tee was also pleased to find that,
in addition to instructing stu-
dents, writing articles and par-
ticipating in research projects, the
Law School faculty is active
among its professional peers-in
Bar Association activities and in
state and national organizations.
From a report on the cost of

Manufacturers' Association
Criticizes Poverty Program
WASHINGTON (A)-The National Association of Manufacturers
expressed opposition yesterday to President Lyndon B. Johnson's anti-
poverty bill and offered instead what it called a "genuine anti-
poverty program."
Heading the business group's list of proposals was a further
tax cut to stimulate business. The association said these cuts should
come out of any increased revenue
to the government resulting from
economic growth.
The NAM also advocated :
-"Economy in government
-Maintenance of the value of
the dollar,
-"Reduction of the special
powers and exemptions granted to
{ f labor unions by, the government
--"Public assistance, where
-; -:necessary, based on need and fi-
f nanced and administered by the
states and localities."
The alternative anti-poverty
steps were detailed in a state-
ment submitted to the House Edu-
cation and Labor Committee,
r which is considering the program.

to HRC by the City Commission.
"The sentiment of the Human

support both proposals, Commis-
sion Director David Cowley said
:qual Consideration
The first proposal, which would
provide for equal consideration
for Negroes who wish to sell or
rent space for "manufacturing,
sale or display," was initiated by
a local Ann Arbor discrimination
case. The case was settled by HRC
and never taken to court. Mrs.,
Eunice Burns, Democratic repre-
sentative from the First Ward, is
sponsoring the amendment,
"which it does not now control. It
would, redefine "boarding house"
so the ordinance would control
houses which rent only two or
three rooms. Under present law,
the ordinance controls. only large
buildings whose sole purpose is
to rent apartments.-
Problems arose over the defini-
tion of the term "boarding house."
Originally, the definition of the
City Building Code was proposed
-a building in which rooms are
rented to four or more persons.
'Just as Responsible'
Commission member, Miss Row-
ena Reynolds, felt that the defini-
tion should include even more
buildings than the building code's.
"We are just as responsible for
one unit as we are for four or
more," she said.
Cowley said that the definition
was being studied by City Attorney
Jacob Farhner, and University law
professors. They presented an un-
disclosed recommendation to him

to discuss a replacement for re-

Sale to Reds
WASHINGTON (?-)-The United
States is seriously considering sale
of a synthetic rubber plant to
Communist Romania, authorita-
tive sources reported yesterday.
Should the sale be made, it will
represent a major change of
course in U.S. \ relations with
Commnist-bloc nations, going out-
side usual trade patterns.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
said in a speech last February
that Romania recently has "as-
serted a more independent atti-
tude and has expanded its trade
and other contacts with the West.
We are responding accordingly."
No decision has been made on
whether to grant the Romanian
request and license the export of
the plant, officials stressed. They
acknowledge there is a difference
in opinion within th administra-
tion regarding the sale, but the
State Department is understood to
favor it.
Romania is considered a lead-
ing example of' a Communist na-
tion trying to loosen'its ties with
Moscow. In the economic field the
Romanians have made it clear
they want to expand their in-
dustry, disregarding the blueprints

The Lundgren plan follows the
