To Ask Changes
For Constitution
House Group To Draft Proposals;
Will Go On Ballot If Approved
A 24-man bipartisan committee in the House is drafting ten reso-
lutions proposing changes in 41 sections of the new Constitution. They
are to be introduced in the Legislature next week, with a one-month
deadline for passage.
If approved by a two-thirds majority in both houses, the reso-
lutions would go on the ballot in a special election April 28. Rep. E. D.

For Apology
The staff of the, Daily Pennsyl-
vanian, student newspaper at the
University ' of Pennsylvania, is
considering whether to print an
apology for a controversial column
titled "Sex and the Single Dean"
which it published last week.
The column, labled almost por-
nographic by the school's dean of
men, was critical of the involve-
ment of the dean of women's- of-
fice in the personal lives of Penn-
sylvania's female students. It com-
mented generally on sex mores and
specifically on women's curfews
in a manner that drew severe
criticism for "vulgarity" from
both the student body and the ad-
At a meeting of the Undergrad-
uate Publications Board yesterday,
the paper offered to publish an
apology for printing an article
that could be misinterpreted as
being slanderous against the dean
of women. However, the board re-
fused this proposal, demanding
the publication of a more strongly
worded apology.
The board and representatives
of the paper worked out a com-
promise statement which, al-
though not admitting that the
article actually was slanderous,
was stronger than the Daily Penn-
sylvanian staff thought justifiable.
The likely alternative to publi-
cation of the compromise apology
is the establishment by the board
of an ad hoc disciplinary com-,
mittee to investigate the article,
and to take any punitive action,
against the paper that it considers,
appropriate. This action could in-,
clude the suspension of the
column's author and the paper's
editor from their positions on the
Daily Pennsylvanian.
If the paper decides to print
the apology, it will appear on
The paper's staff will choose
whichever course of action they
feel to be in the best interest of
their organization, Bourne Ruth-
rauff, editor-in-chief of the paper,
He noted that since the out-
come of the issue will inevitably
set a precedent for future rela-
tions with the administration,
much more than opinions about
the taste of the article in ques-
tion must be considered.

of the unofficial committee, said
that the one-month deadline for
passage is necessary because the
secretary of state is required byI
law to have 60 days to set up the
special election.
Go Into Effect
If the amendments were then
ratified, they would go into effect
45 days later, on June 12, just four
days before the deadline for can-
didates to file nominating petitions
for public office.
This is important because one
of the key changes proposed by the
committee would freeze the pres-
ent legislative districts through
Jan. 1, 1965, permitting the ap-
portionment c o m m i s s i o n now
working on a redistricting plan to
"ignore" the 1964 elections, and
allowing lawmakers to seek re-
election in their present districts.
Senate Minority Leader Charles
S. Blondy (D-Detroit) said that
time wouldn't necessarily present
a problem, because the legisiative
rules could be suspended, and im-
mediate action taken at any time
before Feb. 28, if necessary.
Suspending Rules
Rep. Gail Handy (R-Eau
Claire), co-chairman of the special
committee, said that he wasn't
sure whether or not the rules
could be suspended in dealing with
resolutions of this type, in which
case they would have to wait at
least five days before going on
generalvorders in each house.
Blondy said that the proposal
to postpone reapportionment prob-
ably would have the least trouble
of any of the measures in passing
the Legislature, because the ap-
portionment commission "is hav-
ing so much trouble" deciding on
boundaries for new districts.

sion's deadline for presenting their
plan is Friday, but the four-man,;

would "counter-act a tendency in
the Legislature to take highway1
funds for other purposes."

Special To The Daily
LANSING-An unexpected fus-
illade of negative reaction to his
proposed higher education budget
yesterday sent Gov. George Rom-
ney scurrying to confer and plot
s statistical counterattack with
his key budget aides.
Touching off the harried hour-
long conference with State Con-
troller Glenn Allen, Budget Di-3
rector Paul Wileden and Educa-
tional Aide Charles Orlebeke were
complaints that the recommended
allotments for Wayne State Uni-
versity and Michigan Technolog-
ical University were too meager.
Romney and his budget crew
have scheduled a peace conference
with high Michigan Tech offi-
cials for 9:30 a.m. today, but
Lansing sources said the governor
was concerned more about re-
sponding to the Wayne complaints
-launched by Lt. Gov. John Le-
sinski (D-Detroit)
Inequitable Slice
Sources reported that both Le-'
sinski and Michigan Tech officials
were bickering that these institu-
tions had not received an equit-
able slice of Romney's $131.3 mil-
lion recommendation for a high-
er education appropriation issued
to the Legislature Tuesday.L
The governor asked the Legisla-
ture to award a $20.1 million oper-
ating appropriation to WSU - a
hike of $2.5 million, or 14 per
cent over this year's Wayne al-
lotment of $17.6 million. Wayne
had requested $22.2 million to
handle its anticipated six per cent
enrollment increase next year.
For Michigan Tech, Romney
recommended that the Legislature
appropriate $4.1 million, a 17 per
cent increase over last year. Tech
had asked for'$6 million.
University Praise
University officials have prais-
ed the governor for his recom-
mendation that the University be
given an operating budget of $44
million, almost $6 million or 15
per cent above the appropriation
of last year.
In scheduling the meeting with
Michigan Tech for today, Lansing
sources indicated that it was "ex-
tremely doubtful" that the gover-
nor would change his recommen-
dation. Romney called the meet-
ing yesterday to ascertain that no
mistake had been made in com-
piling the recommendation to
WSU and Michigan Tech, the
sources said.
One source speculated that the
governor's anxiety to make at
least token efforts to review and
defend the recommendations at-
test to his determination to nurse
his proposed budget through the
Legislature w i t h o u t suffering
heavy slashes.
Accepted Recommendation
His more conservative budget
recommendation last year for
higher education was accepted
substantially as he presented it,
the source noted.
Aides close to the governor have
been concerned that a solid bloc
of members of the House may be
forming to perform heavy surgery
on this year's budget.
Crucial to its passage as rec-
ommended would be the attitude
of Democrats, the sources note.

NASA Investigation
Reevaluates Location
Of $50 Million Center
University President Harlan
Hatcher yesterday acknowledged
that by all reports the National
Aeronautics and Space Adminis-
tration will re-award the NASA
electronics center to Boston.
Eighteen states and localities-
including the Ann Arbor area-
have in recent weeks souglt to win
the bid for the $50 million center
as NASA reevaluated its original
selection of Boston at the request
of Congress.
NASA administrator J a m e s
Webb said in Washington that a
preliminary survey of bids from
the 18 states "supported the ori-'
ginal selection of Boston"
Nothing Official
Michael Radock, director of
University relations, said yester-
day that NASA has released no
official announcement. "The Uni-
versity has received no official
word and, as far as we know, Con-
gress has received none," he said.
Michigan congressmen, educat-
ors and industry leaders had
pushed this state's bid, and a pre-
sentation made in Washington by
a group led by Gov. George Rom-
ney was termed "excellent" by
NASA officials.
"However, there has been sus-
picion all along that NASA would

ident Hatcher said.
"Michigan entered its proposal
while recognizing this, but felt it
was an excellent opportunity to
demonstrate the state's capability
to the federal agency.
Michigan and other Midwestern
states argued that the region has
been overlooked in the concentra-
tion of electronics research firms
on the East and West coasts.
"Washington eventually must
realize that the Midwest has been
greatly neglected (in the award-
ing) of these important missile
and space contracts," President
Hatcher commented.
He noted, however, a report that
NASA and other federal agencies
are taking a "second look" at fu-
ture projects that might be located
in the Midwest.
Hundreds of people who helped
prepare the Michigan proposal to
NASA will form a nucleus for
further efforts to bring research
contracts to the state, he added.
Castro Speaks
On Canal Crisis

MIAMI - Fidel Castro offered
his support last night for Pana-

of the Panama Canal treaty." But
he said he had nothing to do with
the recent demonstrations in Pan-
The Cuban prime minister, re-
porting to his people upon return
from a trip to Russia, also offered
to lead Latin American countries
in offering Panama economic aid.
Castro declared t h a t even
though his country has no diplo-
matic relations with Panama, it is
ready to offer help "to the same
extent that the United States gave
He said the recent disorders in
Panama were "not organized by
Cuba," and claimed that, on the
contrary, Cuba "has been careful
to give the United States no rea-
son to practice subterfuges against
that movement."
The Cuban leader spent more

than one hour telling his people
of the sugar deal he made with
Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev. He said the $3.2 billion con-
tract over a six-year period was an
improvement over Cuba's former
deals with the United States, in
which Castro accused the United

mentioned plutonium reactors.
In private talks with Western
delegates at the 17-nation disarm-
ament conference, Soviet nego-
tiator Semyon K. Tsarapkin also
has said he is willing to discuss
a possible limitation of military
budgets by mutual agreement.
Such an agreement was not
specifically referred to in John-
son's five-point plan released this
week. But American officials were
interested in the idea. Tsarapkin
told the conference earlier this
week that the recent cut in the
United States defense budget

ment on the plan is expected to

Weapons Plan'
New proposals for freezing nuc-
lear weapons in Central Europe
are being prepared by Poland for
the Geneva disarmament confer-
ence, Marian Dobrosielski, coun-
selor for the Polish embassy in
Washington, told the Arms Con-
trol and Disarmament Conference
Outlining the basic principles
behind the new proposals, Dob-
rosielski declined to spell out de-
tails, declaring his country "is
prepared to formally submit this
proposal at an appropriate time
and place in a concretely worked
out form."
The proposals will be "much
more modest in scope and simpler
in implementation" than the
Western-rejected Rapacki plan for
a detente in Central Europe in-
cluding a nuclear-free zone, he
The Polish offical noted that
the new proposals will probably be
a modification and simplification
of the first stage of the Rapacki
plan which includ ed the freezing
of nuclear weapons and rockets
and prohibition of new bases in
Poland, Czechoslovakia, and East
and West Germany.
The plan will also include "the
most effective and easiest to im-
plement" inspection system. "In
our proposals we have always sup-
ported a most effective control
system," he declared.
Dobrosielski saw the plan as a
key for peace in Central Europe.
Had a nuclear-free zone been
set up in Central Europe soon
after it had been proposed, the
situation in this region would have
been radically changed by now.
