Director of University Relations
Michael Radock flew to Washing-
ton to discuss the event with As-
sistant Press Secretary Malcolm

The Office of University Rela-

a television station for a "pool fa-
cility" which will enable all sta-
tions to telecast the graduation
ceremony. Kilduff is presently ad-
vising the pool chairman at the
White House.
In addition to the public broad-
cast there will be a closed circuit

and Trueblood Aud.
Times Unknown
Johnson's times of arrival and
departure here are presently un-
known, but Radock reported that
Johnson must return the same day
to address a dinner in Washing-

The students will have a chancej
to express their opinion on recent

The Public Relations Board of

administering a student opinion
poll for SGC. There will be a table

SGC more cognizant of student

maker of the motion to conduct1
the poll, noted. He said that the
more studentsdthat participate the
more meaningful the poll will be.
Results of the poll will be tabu-

MSU Paces Nation
In Merit Winners
Michigan State University will get 206 National Merit
Scholarship winners in the fall, compared with about 30 for the
University, but there is more to the figures than appears on the
And contrary to the fears of some at the University, the dif-
ference is not likely to affect legislative appropriations to the
University. According to Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor),
the number of National Merit winners at the two schools has
"never had any influence on appropriations decisions."
At a February meeting of the American Association of Uni-
versity Professors he reportedly indicated that the Legislature
is gaining ' a greater apprecia-
tion of quality differentials
among state universities.
'Crass Fashion'
Nevertheless, he said last
night that "going out in a kind4

scholars, spending a lot of
money simply to be able to say
that you have a certain num-
ber, is a rather poor way tox
show that you have a first class ......
But the figures seem to speak
for themselves. For instance,
while MSU Vice-President forF
Special Projects Gordon Sab-
me reports that 400 Nationalr
Merit finalists will be among
MSU's freshman class of 4500
this fall, the University will
enroll 600-700 freshmen of PROF. ADON GORDUS
finalist caliber in its 3400 en-
tering class, Assistant Director of Admissions Byron L. Groes-
beck said.
Furthermore, when MSU began its then-unique program of
granting $100-$1500 scholarships to finalists through the Na-
tional Merit program in the fall of 1963, it had only 30 winners
on its campus and ranked 66th in the nation. In one year, grant-
ing 149 scholarships through its own program and attracting
an additional 59 with scholarships from industry and founda-
tions, it brought its total to 228.
157 of 206
Without the school-sponsored grants, MSU's current total
would be only 89. And of the over 200 Merit winners it will admit
this fall, 157 of them will receive their money from the school
and 49 from other sources.
The University, however, currently has 79 Merit winners
and will replace at least 30 of these in the fall, Groesbeck said.
Last fall it admitted 29 winners.
But either way you look at it, MSU seems to be on top.
Counting its own Merit funds it ranks first among the nation's
colleges, but without them, it is still third.
Is the picture still dark for the University? Not at all, Groes-
beck says, for there are other considerations which tend to offset
MSU's claim, as the November issue of its alumnus magazine
states, that "we lead all universities in new Merit scholar fresh-
First Choice Push
The considerations center mainly on MSU's recruiting pro-
cedures. The East Lansing school sends out letters to all Na-
tional Merit semifinalists urging them to list MSU as first choice
on their Merit application form and inviting them to visit the
The Merit hopeful must indicate a choice by the time he is
a finalist. According to Ivan Parker, assistant director of finan-
cial aids, MSU advises that listing that institution at the top of
the list will not only increase the applicant's chances of getting
Merit money-from MSU's own funds-but will give him a
better chance of receiving other MSU funds-especially one of
the $1500-a-year Alumni Distinguished Scholarships for which

Current Level
Rep. Carroll C. Newton (R- Del-
ton) said "we felt it was a big in-
crease for one year."
Rationalizing the across the
board cut Newton explained "we
didn't know what the 'building for
the future' money was to be used
for. Increasednenrollment and
raising faculty salaries are impor-
tant but other purposes for the
'building for the future' requests'
were not so clear."
Some members of the commit-
tee were doubtful of expected en-
rollment increases Rep. Wilfred
G. Bassett (R-Jackson) asserted.'
These predictions failed to ma-
terialize in elementary schools as
was once anticipated."
"Legislators have become wary
of these claims," he noted.
Not Needed
The money appropriated to re-
model East Medical Bldg. will not
be needed until the Medical
Science Bldg., unit II is completed
some two years from now Bassett
explained. The remodeling would
not be done until East Medical is
vacated when the medical building
is ready for use.
"There is no need to appropriate
money that won't be used for two
years," he indicated.

propriation to higher education

Annual Increase
Since World War II, University
operating budget appropriation
was increased each year at an
average rate of 15.3 per cent un-
til the 1958-59 fiscal year when it
was cut almot $1 dollars. It was
increased by 11.2 per cent in
1959-60. but for the following four
years the average increase was a
modest 3.5 per cent.

The House must act on the bill

cated that in the past 10 years
the House has approved 95 per

mittee will rectify differences be-

IFC Fines
Sigma Chi"
For Violation
The Executive Committee of In-
terfraternity Council last night
fined Sigma Chi $700 for viola-
tions of University regulations oc-
curring at its pledge formal on
April 11 and reprimanded Beta
Theta Pi for conduct unbecom-
ing a fraternity.
Two hundred dollars of Sigma
Chi's fine was suspended for one
The fraternity was found guilty
of failing to properly register its
party, having alcohol present, and
permitting women to enter non-
communal areas, specifically the
upper floors of the house.
Attempted Registration
It was brought out that Sigma
Chi had attempted to register the
function, but that irregularities in
their registration form had ore-
vented its acceptance by the ad-
ministration. One of the signa-
tures on chaperone cards submit-
ted for approval had been forged.
Along with the rejected regis-
tration, Sigma Chirhad entered
a request for permission to al-
low women attending the pledge
formal to be in nonconmunal
areas. Such permission has been
granted the fraternity in the past.
In explaining the Executive
Committee's decision, Stephen
Idema, '65, IFC executive vice-
president, emphasized that Sigma
Chi had been caught in the act
of committing the violations by
a University officer.
Decision Precedented
He further pointed out that
there were ample precedents on
record that justify the decision,
calling special attention toa sim-
ilar case last semester.
The size of the fine was partly
determined on a basis of the
number of men in the fraternity,
he remarked.
Sigma Chi can now appeal the
case to either the IFC Executive
Committee by presenting addition-
al evidence or the Joint Judiciary.
Beta's Too
Beta Theta Pi was brought be-
fore the executive committee be-
cause of a complaint filed with
the Office of Student Affairs by
a resident advisor in South Qaud-
The complaint charged the fra-
ternity, which is located next to
the quad, with causing a disturb-
ance last Wednesday. At the time,
members of the fraternity were
wrecking an old car in their park-
ing lot by throwing rocks and ce-
ment blocks at it.
In discussing the case, the com-
mittee expressed considerable con-
cern over hostile feeling between
many residents of the quad and
members of Beta Theta Pi.
Pass Resolution
As part of its decision, the com-
mittee passed a resolution ack-
nowledging that Beta Theta Pi
is not solely responsible for inci-
dents involving South Quad and
the fraternity. The resolution
further established a committee
consisting of the IFC president.

Money for East Medical Bldg.
Taken from Capital Outlay Plan
Claiming there was insufficient justification for the Sen-
ate approved higher 'education appropriations increase, the
House Ways and Means Committee cut the ten state colleges'
and universities' operating budget requests by five per cent
across the board last night.
The University's $44 million operating budget levy as
submitted by Gov. George Romney and approved by the Sen-
ate was cut to $41.8 million.
The University's capital outlay request was cut $300,000
to $5.4 million. The $300,000 was originally designated for
remodeling East Medical Bldg. This year's operating budget
is $38,2 million. The proposed
