New IQC
Document
e ected
With the proposed constitution
for Inter-Quadrangle Council ap-
parently having been rejected, IQC
moved Thursday night to establish
a committee to formulate amend-
ments to the existing constitution.
IQC President Robert :eary,
'63E, reported that there was no
evidence that the required two-
thirds of the quadrangle houses
had approved the new document.
At least four have defeated it:
Van Tyne and Scott in South
Quadrangle and Hayden and Hins-
dale houses in East Quad. None of
the houses in West Quadrangle
voted on the measure.
Different Approach.
Hnce the new committee will
meet to decide upon which pro-
posals will be submitted as amend-
ments rather than presented as
part of a new constitution.
To be chaired by West Quad-
rangle President Dennis Moore,
'63, the group will include Geary,
IQC Vice-President Robert Levine,
'63, and West Quadrangle Repre-
sentative Albert Fowerbaugh, '63.
Two main factors had been cited
by objecting houses to the pro-
posed constitution, which was
passed by IQC last January.
Reject Divided Post
East Quadrangle houses voiced
dissatisfaction with the plan to
split the secretary - treasurership
into two posts. They feared that
under the "slate system" of IQC
officer, elections, one quad could
conceivably enjoy a monopoly.
Houses In South Quadrangle
were mainly concerned with the
preamble. Copied word-for-word
into the new constitution from the
old, the preamble cited a line of
authority running from IQC "to
the quadrangle councils and hence
to the individual houses."
These objectors felt that house
government, as the smallest in-
tegral component in the residence
halls structure, should be the pri-
mary authority.'
Other Reason
In addition, some discontent had
arisen concerning proposals for
IQC Judiciary, because under the
proposed structure the same indi-
vidual theoretically could hear the
same case at all three levels, al-
though he could not vote at the
top two.
The other major revision in the
new document-moving back IQC
elections to the first month of the
spring semester - met with no
opposition.
Say Railroads
Plan Mergers
BAL HARBOUR, Fla. (AM-Rail
union leaders said last night the
,,heads of two major eastern rail-
roads outlined plans to divide the
Eastern states rail system into
three giant firms.
The union leaders said private-
ly that the chiefs told them of
plans to combine the New York
Central and Pennsylvania into one
system, the Baltimore and Ohio
and Chesapeake and Ohio into an-
other and make the Norfolk and
Western the center of a third
Eastern railroad combine..
The labor union chiefs came
away from the meeting with the
NYC and Pennsy executives more
convinced than ever, however, that
they are going to conduct an all-
out campaign against rail con-
solidation all across the board.

Meyer
By MICHAEL OLINICK
The Office of Student Affairs
Study Committee considered
only six of the seven recom-
mendations for changes in the
OSA proposed by the Univer-
sity Senate Student Relations
Committee last spring.
The seventh, "to .develop a
positive program" for imple-
menting the Regents' bylaw
against discrimination, is re-
ceiving individualized attention
from Suzanne M. Meyer, for-
mer secretary to the Ann Ar-
bor Human Relations Commis-
sion.
Vice-President for Student
Affairs James A. Lewis explains
that he undertook the recom-
mendation of the faculty com-
mittee as a special assignment
and chose Mrs. Meyer to carry
it out.
To Implement Bylaw
Mrs. Meyer views her ap-
pointment as a further step to
implement Regents' Bylaw 2.14.
(The University shall not dis-
criminate against any person
because of race, color, religion,
creed, national origin, or an-
cestry. Further, it shall work
for the elimination of discrimi-
nation from non-University
sources where students and the
employes of the University are
involved.)
It is a move toward elimina-
tion of discrimination against
students and others associated
with the University.
The University is among the
leaders in education fighting to
end racial and religious bias,
Mrs. Meyer contends.
Works on Housing
Concentrating her work on
off-campus housing, Mrs. Mey-
er cooperates closely with Stu-
dent Government Council's Hu-
man' Relations Board. The
Board is continuing its labors
in this particular area and is
also currently discussing ways
to implement the bylaw with
respect to University scholar-
ships and grants.

implements Bylaw

The goal in working against
discrimination in off campus
housing is "not to punish peo-
ple, but to expand facilities that
will be open to all," Mrs. Mey-
er says.
Since she undertook the spe-
cial assignment Lewis gave her,
Mrs. Meyers has attempted to
accelerate a "philosophical

Exceptions were granted at
that time to persons who pro-
vided housing in their\ own
homes for only one or two
people.
Exception Deleted
The exception was deleted
late this fall after a student-
faculty-administration commit-
tee decided it was not logically
consistent practice nor did it
provide ample protection for
students.
Since January 15, Mrs. Mey-
er has sent out policy state-
ments to each landlord as his
announcements are posted on
the bulletin boards.
Off-campus housing, under
the direction of Elizabeth Les-'
lie of the dean of women's of-
fice and Mark Noffsinger of the
dean of men's, have sought-
and received-assistance from
The Daily and the Michigan
Union. Mrs. Meyer sends out
letters to all landlords who use
The Daily's classified ad de-
artment. Since most of the no-
tices posted in the Union con-
tain only telephone numbers
and not the landlord's name,
Mrs. Meyer has had some diffi-
culty in sending out letters to
these advertisers.
Few Cases
Noting that only a very few
persons have been asked to re-
frain from using University fa-
cilities to advertise, Mrs. Mey-
er stresses that "there has not
been a single case where the
individual concerned has ar-
gued that the University has no
right to move against discrimi-
nation: Some have felt they
, could not personally comply
with the regulation and, thus,
have quit using the bulletin
boards."
She calls the recognition of
the University's right to take
such action as "stepping stone"
of progress and hopes for time
when all housing will be open
without regard to religion or
race.

MRS: SUZANNE MEYER
. . implements bylaw
change" and convince students
"to come to grips with the real
issues at hand."
Asks New- Attitude
Pointing to a modification of
policy which denies use of Uni-
versity facilities to advertise
discriminatory housing, Mrs.
Meyers sees a "more positive
attitude."
In August, 1960 letters were
sent to landlords telling them
of Bylaw 2.14. Last fall policy
statements were posted on Uni-
versity bulletin boards which
,explained the ruling and stated
that any services advertised on
the boards must be "available
to all persons without regard to
race, color, religion, creed, na-
tional origin or ancestry."

Union Sets
Merger Talks
With League
By GERALD STORCH
The Michigan Union Board of
Directors Thursday night voted to
establish a committee "to inves-
tigate the possibility of integra-
tion" between the Union and the
Michigan League.
The proposal for unifying the
two organizations was part of a
more general motion by Michael
Olinick, '63, ,to express "a philoso-
phy of the Union."
He viewed the Union's role to
be one of "meeting the changing
intellectual, social and recreation-
al needs of the campus communi-
ty."
Ask Bridge Gap
As part of the general re-evalu-
ation of student affairs on the
campus, the Union should begin
"to bridge whatever gap now exists
between the nonacademic' and
'academic' personalities of the
University."
As the first step in the imple-
mentation of this ideal, Olinick
proposed that the board's Appoint-
ments Committee establish a new
committee to meet with League of-
ficials and "work out a plan to
achieve this integration."
During debate, Regent Eugene
B. Power, who was newly installed
to replace retired Regent Otto E.
Eckert, added that "the tendency
is toward treating students as stu-
dents," without differentiating as
to sex.
No Alumni Objection
He dismissed the possibility that
a large number of tradition-bound
male alumni would object to al-
tering the Union's status as a
men's club, and said that the ad-
ministration "would look with
considerable favor" upon unifica-
tion.
However, Dean of Men Water
B. Reavnoted that "in the past
there have been meetings between
the Union and League," but the
two organizations could not arrive
at compromises necessary to
achieve unification.
Later, Union Executive Vice-
President Todd Fay, '62, amended
Olinick's motion to have the com-
mittee merely "investigate" unifi-
cation. Fay said that due to the
heavy importance of a move to
combine, the committee's mem-
bers should approach the League
officials "with an open mind."
Motion Divided
The board divided Olinick's mo-
tion into two parts: the general
statement of philosophy and the
Union-League unification. Union
President Paul Carder, '62, broke
a 7-7 tie by voting for Fay's
amendment. Then the board post-
poned consideration of, the more
general section until its next
meeting March 9.
(League President Bea Nemla-
ha, '62, commented last night that
she personally was very pleased to
see the formation of the commit-
tee. E,

Sovie Bid for Talks

Prof. George Grassmuck could not agree with the position taken
by the President and Macmillan in refusing, to accept Khrushchev's
invitation. "I am somewhat puzzled by Kennedy's refusal," he said. "I

AUDIT COMMISSION REPORT:
State Has Most Student Immigration

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is. the
first of two parts of the Report to
the Legislature by the Legislative
Audit Commission, a jointlegisla-
tive 'group.' This section deals with
out-of-state students at Michigan's
nine state-supported colleges and
universities. The second part, cov-
ering faculty salaries, will appear
tomorrow.)
By MICHAEL HARRAH
Special To The Daily
LANSING - "Michigan is the
leading state in the migration of
students into its public institu-
tions of higher education."
That is the conclusion of the
Legislative Audit Commission,
chaired by House Majority Floor
Leader Allison Green (R-King-
ston).
The commission was created
during the 1961 session of the
Legislature to gather figures for
the various legislative committees
to aid in making decisions on
proposed legislation, according to
Green.
Assisted by the auditor general's
office, 'the commission studied the
audit report at Ferris Institute at
Big Rapids (where irregularities
had been reported), scholarships
given at state-supported institu-
tions, out-of-state students enroll-'
ed in Michigan's schools, student
applications for admission to

state-supported institutions, and
faculty salaries.
-Green emphasized that the com-
mission will interest itself in more
areas of state government than
education, but only reports in the
educational field ,are forthcoming
right now.
Concerning out - of - state stu-
dents specifically, the commission
reported figures, gathered from
one of the nine institutions, as
follows:
"The fall of 1961 out-of-state
enrollments at Michigan's sstate-
controlled institutions follows:

clearly remember his saying.in his
inaugural address, 'We shall never
negotiate from fear and never fear
to negotiate'."
New Tactic
Prof. William Ballis saw a "new
tactic" in the proposal.
He felt that Khrushchev lost
prestige in the non-Western world
with Soviet resumption of nuclear
testing last November.
"The Soviet leader realizes that
the United States is determined to
resume above ground nuclear test-
ing to maintain its position in this
field," Prof. Ballis said. "Khrush-
chev wants to focus the attention
of the world on himself as the
principle advocate of peace.
Speaking in the presence of other
world leaders is a very good
weapon."f
Talks Meaningless
Prof. Ballis agreed with the
Western position that as long as
Soviets refuse to accept the prin-
ciple of international controls over
arms, disarmament talks are
meaningless.

Complaint
Channel Set,
By DAVID MARCUS
The Student Government Council
Chamber of Commerce Committee
is arranging a complaint channel
for students who feel, they have
been treated unreasonably by Ann
Arbor businessmen, committee co-
9hairman and Union executive
Vice-President Todd Fay, '62, said
yesterday.
The committee is also planning
to do a comparative price study
between the campus and other
areas of the city and other college
towns, Fay added.
"We're interested in finding out
if the student complaints are legi-
timate or just unfounded gripes,"
Fay said.
"Ultimately, this may result in
some sort of single channel for
student complaints."
Grievances may be submitted by
any student kin written form, pre-
ferably signed, at the Union desk
and marked "Box 450."
This committee, set up by the
SGC two years ago with the
Union executive vice-president and
an Ann Arbor businessman as co-
chairmen, consists of representa-
tives from the Union, Interquad-
rangle Council, Panhellinic Asso-
ciation; the League, Interfraternity
Council, Assembly Association, the
Graduate Student Council and a
delegation of the Ann Arbor Re-
tail Merchants Association.

Macmillan Requests
Continued Flexibility
In Meeting Demands
WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F.,Kennedy and Prime Min-
ister Harold Macmillan of Great
Britain were reported last night to
have. discussed by telephone the
nature of their replies to Russia's
renewed bid for a mid-March
summit meeting on disarmament.
Kennedy was in Florida, but his
reply had been drafted and sub-
ject to his revision and approval
probably will be dispatched to
Moscow today.
It was considered likely Mac-
millan's response also will go\out
this weekend.
Flexible Attitude
Macmillan is understood, ac-
cording to information reaching
here, to have urged the President
to maintain the same broadly flex-
ible attitude toward a possible
East-West summit meeting in the
spring which the two allied lead-
ers had indicated to Soviet Pre-
mier Nikita S. Khrushchev in ear-
lier messages.
Apparently Macmillan was con-
cerned about the fast and sharp
reaction from the State Depart-
ment Friday night to the Khrush-
chev letter to Kennedy which had
been received here early Friday.
State Department officials re-
jected the new bid and it was made
known that they considered the
tone and wording of the 20-page
Khrushchev letter to be much
tougher than his initial proposal
for a summit conference next
month.
Macmillan Fears Toughness
There was some indication that
Macmillan feared that Kennedy's
reply would reflect in its tone and
wording American toughening on
the summit issue and this the
British Prime Minister wished to
avoid.
The Kennedy response as pres-
ently drafted is reported to hold
firmly to the view that disarma-
ment negotiations in the 18 nation
committee which meets at Gene-
va, March 14 should be opened by
foreign ministers rather than by
heads of government.ny
Khrushchev Objects
Khrushchev's message Friday
asking Kennedy and Macmillan to
change their minds was the result.
Khrushchev did not say in his
message whether he would go to
Geneva without agreement from
Kennedy and Macmillan or wheth-
er he' would be prepared to send
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Gromyko.
At the same time, Kennedy and
Macmillan are agreed that they
would be willing to attend a sum-
mit meeting on disarmament at a
later stage of the negotiations,
probably in May, if in the mean-
time some progress toward East-
West agreement can be achieved.

Moslem Mobs Block Oran
As Algerian Violence Grows
ALGIERS ()-Moslem mobs brandishing weapons blocked the
entrances into the western Algerian city of Oran yesterday as violence
raged inside.
At the same time machinegun fire rattled around the teeming
Casbah of Algiers.
Heavy troop reinforcements rolled into the two cities, where ter-
rorism continued with bloody intensity, claiming at least a score of
lives and wounding 30 other persons by dusk.
Authorities in Algiers said they were not capable of halting in-
dividual terrorist attacks. They said massive intervention of troops
"is being postponed for the "days
of real trouble."

EFEAT TRADITIONAL RIVAL:

lcers Triumph over Spartans in Last Seconds
By JIM BERGER and TOM WEBBER
Special To The Daily
EAST LANSING-The Michigan hockey team became spoilersr
last night as they defeated Michigan State. 4-2 and pushed the
slumping Spartans farther away from a Western Collegiate Hockey
Association playoff berth.
The two teams clash again tonight at the Coliseum before a
sellout crowd. Michigan State must now win tonight to have any
chance of a playoff bid. The Spartans got a big break, however, as
North Dakota defeated Minnesota 3-2. A Minnesota win coupledV
with a Spartan loss will turn the fourth place slot into a tie.
Little To Cheer
The 2190 Michigan State fans who turned out at the Ice Rink "
here had very little to cheer about as Michigan goalie Dave Butts
did a masterful job of turning away the Spartan rushes. It was
only at 14:35 of the final frame when MSU forward Tom Lackey
prevented Butts from having his first shutout of the year.
