Rebel Planes Bomb
Diem's Residence
Vietnamese Leader Escapes Injury;
U.S. Sources Fear Internal Strife
SAIGON-Two fighter-bombers with markings of the South Viet
Nam Air Force blasted President Ngo Dinh Diem's palace with bombs,
rockets and machineguns yesterday, but radio Saigon announced an
hour later that Diem and his family were safe.
It was not immediately known who piloted the planes or what
triggered the attack. The only military movements inside Saigon were
by government troops setting up a defense perimeter around the pal-
ace, one wing of which was left in flames by the attack.
Piloted by Rebels
A report from the South, Viet Nam press agency received in
Tokyo said the planes were piloted by rebel members of the South
Viet Nam Air Force. The agency

Fine Strauss
For Violating
EQC Ru~lig
Strauss House was convicted
Sunday night and fined $100 for
holding a party which violated an
East Quadrangle Council ruling
banning "all social events on the
night of the Snowflake Ball."
Strauss had testified before East
Quad Judiciary Council that the
gathering which occurred in
Strauss that night was a "spon-
taneous" rather than house-plan-
ned function, and charged that the
ruling was contrary to the quad's
constitution which restricts EQC's
authority to "matters directly con-
cerning East Quad and those mat-
ters which are of an inter-house
Judiciary Concerns
The Judic upheld the EQC rul-
ing "since the Snowflake Ball is a
quadrangle-wide function and this
directly concerns East Quad."
The verdict contended that "the
function was not spontaneous. Al-
though the house council may not
have been involved, the individuals
directly responsible for organizing
the party did not come forward.
Therefore the judiciary must up-
hold its decision by making the
house council responsible."
The Judic did not rule on four
other charges brought by EQC,
concerning Strauss' alleged failure
to secure proper calendaring, ap-
proval and chaperoning for the
event, and the presence of "illegal
women guests."
Moch Comments
Former IQC President Tom Moch,
'62E, pointed out the significance
of the Strauss case. "It's a question
of a federation, where the ultimate
power lies in IQC and the quad
councils vs. a confederation, where
the individual houses are the main
powers, and just get together once
in a while to talk about the quads.
The decision indicates that it's a
Strauss' defense counsel Thomas
Butch, '64, said the decision "sets
a dangerous precedent in an area
which is-and, we feel, rightfully
so - the business of the house.
What's to keep EQC from saying,
for example, that we can't have a
party next Thursday? I think
they've overstepped their bounds."
Butch added, "It's reasonable to
assume that we'll appeal the case.
I think the fine is extremely ex-
Stan Lubin, '63E, who prosecuted
in behalf of EQC, explained that
"I don't think the party was the
main thing. The violation of the
quad ruling would have set a dan-
gerous precedent. The verdict
shows that quad government is a
power to contend with."

said anti-aircraft batteries man-
ned by navy men had shot down
one of the two rebel planes at 7:35
a.m. Saigon Time. One plane
crashed and the pilot and co-pilot
were arrested, it added.)
While official United States
sources sought to play down the
magnitude of the assault against
Diem, it was plain in the United
States capital that the affair set
off consternation here.
Discord From Within
As one authority put it, South
Viet Nam has enough troubles with
the Reds {now and can ill stand
major discord from within.
The United States military com-
mander in the Pacific, Adm. Harry
D. Felt, said in Honolulu that he
has radio telephoned Saigon and
been told the situation was quiet
21/ hours after the bombing, and
that Diem was safe.
Diem himself has gone on the
radio and issued a statement cred-
iting - "divine providence" for his
survival, reports said.
"The United States embassy in
Saigon reported to the State De-
partment that there were no in-
cidents in Saigon other than the
aerial attack and no evidence of
major revolt against Diem.
Quads To Add
For Residents
Two long-standing complaints in
the residence halls system have
moved closer to solution.
Residence Halls Business Man-
ager Leonard Schaadt said yes-
terday that soap dispensers will
be tried experimentally in wash-
rooms, while the closing time for
quadrangle telephone switchboards
has been extended from 10:30 to
11 p.m. each day to conform to the
dormitories' schedule.-
He announced that a new type
of dispenser, made of stainless
steel to prevent corrosion and us-
ing a detergent instead of soap to
prevent clogging, will be installed
"about spring vacation" time in
the quadrangles.
If the dispensers, one of which
has already had a trial for about
one year in one washroom in South
Quad, continue to be successful,
the facility will be put into the
dormitories also.
The change in telephone service
was made because parents no
longer are complaining about be-
ing able to call their daughters,
Schaadt said. Since each dormitory
room for about a year and a half
has had a telephone, parents ap-
parently have had little trouble
in calling, thus ending the need
for the period between 10:30 and
11 p.m. for dormitory switchboards.

Audit Gives
'False' Vew
The report by the Legislative
Audit Commission on faculty sal-
aries is "oversimplified and gives
a false picture" of the University's
competitive position, University
Executive Vice-President Marvin
L. Niehuss said yesterday.
The report is oversimplified be-
cause itrdoes not compare salaries
by faculty rank, it is confined to
colleges and universities in the
midwest and it does not consider
the proportion of graduate stu-
dents at the universities surveyed,
Niehuss explained.
Faculty Rank Factor
According to House Majority
Floor Leader Allison Green (R-
Kingston) the report tended to
disprove any urgent situation in
regard to faculty salaries. While
not disputing the commission's
statistics, Niehuss explained how
the oversimplified report distorts
the University's true competitive
Niehuss said that salaries must
be compared within faculty rank
-professors with professors at
competing colleges, instructors
with instructors-to give a true
competitive image.
Otherwise a university with a
higher proportion of professors
(who get the top salaries) would
appear to pay higher salaries than
another institution with .a smaller
proportion of top people.
Incomplete Analysis
The report also gave an incom-
plete analysis of the University's
competitive position by consider-
ing only midwestern universities
and colleges, Niehuss said.
The University's real competi-
tion comes, not from the midwest,
but from the east and west coasts
-the wealthy private institutions
and the University of California.
Niehuss said that the Univer-
sity's salary increases haven't kept
pace with increases nationwide,
and last year there were no in-
Graduates Neglected
A third shortcoming of the re-
port is its failure to consider the
relative proportion of graduate
students at the universities sur-
veyed-mostly members of the Big
Ten, Niehuss said.
The more graduate students a
university has the more full and
associate professors it needs. This
raises its "average" faculty salary
out of proportion to its true com-
petitive position.

STUDENTS CLASH-Fistfights broke out on the University of Pennsylvania campus yesterday
as opposing student groups clashed over the suspension of the undergraduate newspaper, The
Daily Pennsylvanian. A former editor of the newspaper trades punches with a member of the
opposition on the Penn campus.
Pennsylvania Punishes Editor

Melvin Goldstein, the editor of
the Daily Pennsylvanian, was put
on "conduct probation" by the
University of Pennsylvania Com-
mittee on Discipline yesterday af-
A student on conduct probation
is forbidden to take part in any
extra-curricular activity. "In ef-
fect Goldstein has effectively been
deposed as editor of the paper,"
Benjamin Natelson, who will be
next year's business manager of
the paper, explained.
Report Russia,
U.S". Planning
joint Telecast
By The Associated Press
States and Russia were reported
yesterday to be arranging for
simultaneous television broadcasts
next month in both countries of
statements by President John F.
Kennedy and Premier Nikita S.
However, White House Press
Secretary Pierre Salinger said
"there are no present arrange-
ments" for such programs.
Salinger and Mikhail Kharla-
mov, his Soviet counterpart, agreed
in principle to such a broadcast
last month.
Kennedy said yesterday, in a
speech broadcast around the
world, that the United States
wants its affairs reported fully
even behind iron curtains, but he
did not specifically mention the
proposed telecasts.

Commenting on his punishment
Goldstein said that 'although he
believed .the committee, which is
composed of administrators, fac-
ulty and students acted in good
faith, he did not think that "any
actions taken by the Daily Penn-
sylvanian or myself warrant con-
duct probation. Despite the per-
sonal action against me the is-
sue at hand is still supression of
the press."
Students Picket Dean
Goldstein reported that more
than 500 students covering two
city blocks picketed the home of
Dean of Men Robert Longley on
Sunday, protesting his action in
suspending the paper. "A small
group of counterpicketers arrived
and started trouble. When it ap-
peared that Longley's home might
get damaged we called police. The
demonstration disbanded when
they arrived."
The statement issued with Gold-
stein's punishment stated that the
committee held him chiefly re-
sponsible for the printing of an
offensive issue of the paper. It
also condemned his reporting of
the circumstances surrounding the

suspension as "irresponsible in
terms of verification of facts and
in concern for the best interests
of the University."
The issue involved was a parody
printed by the Daily Pennsylvan-
ian on the Pennsylvania News, a
weekly paper for women on the
campus. The News later congrat-
ulated the Daily on the quality
of its issue.
Attempt Compromise
' Longley said that members of
the student government and the
newspaper staff are meeting L'o try
to work out some compromise to
permit the paper to resume pub-
lishing. A member of the political
science department is sitting in

A committee has been set up by
university officials to "look into

Notes Changing Approach
The changing approach to stu-
dent affairs within the University
is a function of changes in the
society, particularly those in the
family, he stressed.
"I am concerned that we keep
alert to the evolution of our so-
ciety and have an atmosphere in
the University which is in keeping
with the society. There is a dan-
ger in fostering frigidity in any
institution, especially 1 one like
Today's entering freshman has

the one who came to Ann Arbor
when President Hatcher started
his first year at the University
in 1951. "They have seen a much
wider slice of life than their pre-
decessors and display, at least
since the Sputnik inspired a
'toughening-up' program in the
high schools, more knowledge."
Allows More Freedom
The University can allow the
student more freedom and respon-
sibility than it used to because
the family has been increasing the
amount of freedom and respon-
sibility granted to younger chil-
The responsibility of the Uni-
versity is to meet the student
where he leaves his family and
guide him to responsible entrance
into society as an adult, President
Hatcher believes.
One of the prime virtues of the
OSA committee report is its rec-
ognition of the growth factor in
the student body, he said.
Cites Mature Students
"The report shows that a large
number of our students-gradu-
ates, married students and seniors
-are already mature. It destroys
the tendency to think of students
as a homogeneous body and points
out the complexity of the Uni-
versity. It also shows the degree
of aid the University can and
should give to freshmen."
The University, however, is not
a pissive reflector of society, its
president believes. It is ahead of
society in many areas, in adding
to man's knowledge as well as in
nonacademic policies, but " we are
not a militant organization with a

The concept of "The University as a Community" was examined by
a representative of each of the three branches of the University at the
Challenge program Sunday afternoon.
Prof. Theodore M. Newcomb of the psychology department ex-
plained that the type of community desired depends on the degree of
independence and normativeness wanted. "People need each others
"help, support and stimulation and
must know how and when these
can be counted on. But we also
