Expect Senate Action
On Loyalty Oath Bil
House Easily Passes Allen Measure;
Would Cover All State Personnel
By JUDITH OPPPENHEIM
Senate action is expected to begin today on a bill requiring all
personnel whose salary is paid partially or completely out of state
funds to sign loyalty oaths.
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Lester J. Allen (R-Ithaca), passed
the House of Representatives by a margin of 94-6 Tuesday and
was sent to the Senate yesterday. Senate sources expect it to be
referred to committee.
Aimed chiefly at what Allen termed "the small minority of
faculty members" who teach students that "capitalism exploits the

Redistricting
Bill Headed
For House
LANSING (A)-A bill carving a
new 19th congressional dist ict out
of the southern end of l acomb
County and the southeast part of
Oakland County passed the Sen-
ate and was sent to the House
yesterday.
The passage was a victory for
Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-St.
Clair), Senate Republican leader,
who threw in his version of the
redistricting proposal after sev-
eral other plans had failed to pass.
But Gov. John B. Swainson in-
dicated shortly afterward that the
measure will meet death if it ends
up on his desk for signature.
Malapportionment
"The Beadle plan for congres-
sional malapportionment adopted
by the Senate is totally unaccept-
able ... . it represents sheer poli-
tical expediency," he said.
Swainson described the plan as
a "shocking example of political
manipulation to bear down rep-
resentative government."
The plan did nothing to improve
equality of representation, Swain-
son said.
The final passage vote was 19
approving and 10 against. A move
to give the measure immediate
effect was defeated, however, as a
22-7 vote failed to swing a two-
thirds majority.
Still May Recall
The Senate can still recall the
bill for immediate affect if it or
some amended version passes the
House.
The new district would take in
Centerline, East Detroit, Rose-
ville, St. Clair Shores, Utica, War-
ren and Sterling township in Ma-
comb County and Ferndale, Hazel
Park and Madison Heights in Oak-
land County.
All other congressional districts
would remain unchanged.
Sen. Carlton H. Morris (R-Kal-
amazoo), who saw his own re-
districting proposal fail of pass-
age, protested the bill could not
pass the House.
"This doesn't even pretend to
eliminate inequities or to come
close to representing the state on
a population basis, Morris said.
Legislators
View Request
For Research
LANSING (IP)-Legislators last
night heard pleas for construction
of new mental health hospitals
and expansion of programs for
treatment of mentally ill and men-
tally retarded.
More than 250 persons repre-
senting more than a dozen state-
wide organizations crowded the
House chamber for a public hear-
ing on mental health bills sub-
mitted to the Legislature.
Hear 'U' Request
The state Senate had previewed
University requests on mental
health research Tuesday.
Dr. Raymond W. 'Waggoner,
director of the Neuropsychiatric
institute and chairman of the
phychiatry department testified
before. the Senate Appropriations
Committee on proposals for the
construction of inpatient units for
emotionally disturbed children.
He told the committee that such
units would need assured adequate
psychiatric help to staff them.
Sound Proposals

In his testimony, Dr.. Waggoner
had said, "The proposals for the

masses and: socialism is better,"
the bill would require personnel to
swear to uphold the constitutions
of the United States and of -Mich-
igan.
University employes already take
an oath which reads: "I do
solemnly swear or affirm that I
will support the Constitution of
the United States of America and
the Constitution of the State of
Michigan and that I will faith-
fully discharge the duties of my
position according to the best of
my ability." Employes of Michigan
State University and Wayne State
University also sign the oath.
Ted Ogar, press secretary for
Gov. John B. Swainson, said yes-
terday that many details regard-
ing applications of the bill are
not clear.
"I do not know about applica-
tion of the bill to the state uni-
versities," he said. "One question;
which has been raised is that the
universities are constitutional bod-
ies and therefore have autonomy.,
There is uncertainty as to whether
the Legislature has authority to
pass such a measure involving;
them."
Penn Daily
May Resume
Publication_
By RONALD WILTON
The Men's Student Governmenty
of the University of Pennsylvania
last night approved a motion to
allow the Daily Pennsylvanian to
resume publication rising its own1
funds.-
Earlier in the evening the stu-I
dent government turned down by
a vote of 16-1 a motion to allow
the paper to publish using student1
funds.
i'The reason given for the re-
jection was that the members
thought that the first motion
could be construed as giving in,"
Barry Satlow, associate features
editor of the Penn Daily said.
He reported that a large rally
is planned for today in support
of the paper. "We are not sure
where we will hold it but it will
be held," he emphasized.,
Tuesday night the Senior Exe-
cutive Board of the paper electedI
Michael S. Brown, the Features
Editor .to be the new Editor-in-
Chief.1
Brown later suspended RobertI
L. Hirschorn, the managing editora
and Robert A. Ruchamkin thec
sports editor of the paper becausec
of an editorial they wrote for the
Pennsylvania News, the woman'sI
campus weekly paper, criticisingi
the Daily Pennsylvanian. The
move must be approved by the
Senior Executive Board.I
If the paper resumes publishing
using its own funds, and there is
"some doubt of that," then the
present executive board will be in
control until March 8 when a new1
board which it elected will take
over, Satlow reported. This elec-,
tion was in the normal course of,
events and not inspired by the:
suspension of the paper.I

Free World'
WASHINGTON - Through its
vast research efforts, instruction-
al programs and faculty service,
the University stands as "a ma-
jor resource for the entire free
world." University President Har-
lap Hatcher said here last night.
Addressing the annual Congres-
sional Dinner at the Washington
Alumni Club, President Hatcher
said the University has trained
many outstanding citizens of oth-
er countries and has conducted re-
search important to nations'
health, knowledge and defense. It
also has sent faculty members to'
serve in Washington and in every
area of the globe, he said.
"There is a growing relation-
ship between the University as a
state institution and as one ful-
filling national and international
functions. This is indicated by the
increasing volume of support we
are receiving from the Federal
government.
Open Doors
"By opening our doors to the
students of the world, and by
welcoming the problems of other
nations, we have strengthened our
own University. These students
and these problems have brought
to ourcampus a rare and precious
insight."
President Hatcher reported that
there are 6,700 students from oth-
er states and 1,400 from 97 na-
tions on the campus. "We are
proud that such highly qualified
young men and women have come
to us, for they enhance our Uni-
versity. Good faculty members are
drawn to good students, and vice
versa.
"There are now approximately
192,000 alumni living in this coun-
try and 7,000 living abroad," Pres-
ident Hatcher said. "They are in
the halls of Congress, in the fed-
eral government, among the na-
tional leaders in education and the
professions; they are highly plac-
ed in industry, they are guiding
medical and industrial projects in
their homelands."
Senators Attend
Five senators and 12 represen-
tatives attended the University,
the President said, as did G. Men-
nen Williams, assistant secretary
of state for African affairs; Jer-
ome Wiesner, special scientific ad-
visor to President John F. Ken-
nedy; Theodore Moscoso, admin-
instrator of the Alliance for Prog-
ress; United States Treasurer
Elizabeth Rudel Smith of Califor-
nia; and Richard Scammon, di-
rector of the Census Bureau.
President Hatcher also noted:
The University is the, Defense
Department's leading prime con-
tractor among educational insti-
tutions which do not operate fed-
eral facilities and hold the largest
number of National Aeronautics
and Space Administration con-
tracts.

Committee
Sees Danger
Of Reticence
By MAJORIE BRAHMS
The Committee on Membership
in Student Organizations report-
ed to Student Government Coun-
cil yesterday on its status in in-
specting the content and adequacy
of fraternity and sorority state-
ments on membership selection
practices.
A major problem of the commit-
tee is an unwillingness in some
fraternities and sororities to bring
their questions to the committee,
the report stated. An amicable
relationship between the group and
the committee would be preferable
to the "policeman's image we have
now," Jessy McCorry, Grad, chair-
man of the committee, said.
Notes Fear
Council President Richard Nohl,
'62BAd, pointed out the fear of
disciplinary action as the basis of
unwillingness to communicate with
the committee. At bottom the
problem is one of education to
the committee's functions and dis-
ciplinary actions.
Nohl said he noticed "a great
deal of uninformed skepticism
among the fraternities and sorori-
ties." He asked if a wider range
of information was not needed.
Information may be given to
the people concerned at meetings,
McCorry said. Interfraternity
Council Executive Committee and
Panhellenic Executive Committee
as well as the fraternity and so-
rority advisets would be invited to
the meetings to discuss general
problems.
Suggests Discussions
McCorry suggested the group in
violation could first discuss the
matter with IFC or Panhel instead
of coming directly to the com-
mittee. This might help to alle-
viate the problems of fear and
lack of information as to the com-
mittee's policies. The group then
could bring the matter to the
committee.
McCorry said he would "appre-
ciate Panhel and IFC developing
their own programs as to ade-
quacy of statements" but that at
present little has been done.
Explains Problem
Peterson suggested a general
statement on waivers be made so
the groups will know what their
alternatives are. McCorry said the
problem is that nationals must be
dealt with in this case. The com-
mittee must know if the national
has granted the local freedom of
choice in giving it the waiver.
All waivers considered to date
have an "unfortunate similarity in
that they have a statement of the
type of 'acceptibility to the gen-
eral fraternity'," McCorry raid.
This phrase appears to mean that
an individual fraternity member
on another campus could prohibit
the admittance of a prospective
member. If this is so, it raises
questions as ,to the locals auton-
omy in membership selection and
the possibility of individual pre-
judice, he said.
McAllen Submits
Petition for SGC
Henry McAllen, '64L, took out
a petition yesterday for the Stu-
dent Government Council election.
Petitioning closes tomorrow.

WASHINGTON () - A White
House commission proposed yes-
terday a drastic overhaul of work
and pay practices on the nation's
railroads.
The 21-man panel handed Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy an exhaus-
tive report recommending meth-
ods for the railroads to cut off
many thousands of workmen it
said aren't needed to operate mov-
ing trains-while meeting their in-
come loss temporarily as they are
schooled for new jobs.
Give Africans
Chance To Win
Home Rule
LONDON (M)-The British Gov-
ernment yesterday offered the Af-
ricans of Northern Rhodesia a
slender chance of winning a ma-
jority in Parliament, and home
rule, in their 290,000 square mile
territory south of the Congo.
The proposals on revision of
the Northern Rhodesian constitu-
tion, announced in the House of
Commons by Colonial Secretary
Reginald Maudling, touched off a
deep imperial crisis.
Fearing a death-blow to his Cen-
tral African Federation of North-
ern and Southern Rhodesia and
Nyasaland, Premier Sir Roy Wel-'
ensky hustled uninvited by jet into
London to pound the desks of
British leaders.

The commission agreed in effect
with the carriers that they have
for years been saddled with "feath-
erbedding" requirements to keep
on unnecessary workers. It said
some 35,000 firemen on diesel lo-
comotives in freight and yard serv-
ice serve no useful purpose, and
should be gradually eliminated.
Recommendations Accepted
The industry promptly -accept-
ed the recommendations, but five
unions representing 200,000 work-
ers who operate trains rejected the
proposals with "shock and disap-
pointment." The unions foresaw
a loss of 80,000 jobs.
The unions set' a series of meet-
ings over the next two weeks to
consider taking strike votes among
their members.
Kennedy called on the'industry
and unions, however, to enter in-
to immediate collective bargain-
ing on the recommendations,
mindful that they have "an over-
riding responsibility to the nation-
al interest to provide the most ef-
ficient and safe rail transportation
possible."
Problems Aired
The commission, appointed near
the end of former President
Dwight D. Eisenhower's adminis-
tration at the request of the rail-
roads and unions, spent 15 months
airing rail labor relations prob-
lems.
The commission was composed
of five members each representing
the public, the railroads and the
five operating unions-the engi-

neers, firemen, trainmen,
tors and switchmen.
