The Council then passed a reso-
lution presented by a councilman,
Prof. Lynn W. Eley, of the politi-
cal science department, which not-
ed that "discrimination in hous-
ing is contrary to public policy" of
the city of Ann Arbor.
Several months ago, Eley had
proposed a fair housing ordinance
which was referred to the Human
Relations Commission for study.
Need Ordinance
"I do not believe that we can
cope effectively with problems of
discrimination in housing unless
we have an ordinance with penal-
ties," he said.
A sheet handed out by the pick-
eters to passers-by complained of
the breakdown in negotiations
with Reaume and claimed wide-
spread support in Pittsfield Vil-
lage itself. The sheet also noted
the backing of the Ann Arbor
Democratic Party and Ann Arbor
Congress of Racial Equality.

ing could achieve positive results
The move reduced the numbe:
of conference nations from 18 ti
17.
A statement issued by th
French foreign ministry said tha
it was hoped that later "it migh
appear possible to organize, in a
atmosphere clear of any spirit o
polemics ' or propaganda, discus
sions on the problem of disarma.
ment, as well as on the other bli
problems of the world, between th
powers which can effectively con
tribute to their solution."
Former Stand
The statement was a reiteratio
of the position taken by Presiden
Charles de-Gaulle when he replie
to the proposal by Soviet Premie
Nikita Khrushchev for an 18-na
tion summit meeting on disarma
ment.
De Gaulle said he felt that a
four-power conference would b
more advisable. He indicated h
felt nothing could be gained, b;
bringing in non-atomic powers t
the talks.
De Gaulle also wanted the talk
to be based on French suggestion
for destroying all atomic stock
piles and setting up tight control
on' atomic delivery systems.
List Implications
The boycott could be an ex
pression of de Gaulle's hostilit
toward the United Nations. Th
conference brings together mem
bers of a special_ UN commtte
on disarmament.
De Gaulle long has considere
the UN an ineffective organizatio
and given little support to its ac
tivities
With the French out of th
talks, the Western lineup at th
March 14 conference will be th
United States, Britain, Canada an
Italy.
The Communist bloc will corni
prise Russia, Bulgaria, Czechoslo
vakia, Poland and Romania.
Neutral Nations
In addition, there will be thes
neutralists: Brazil, Burma, Ethic
pia, India, Mexico, Nigeria, Swe
den and the United Arab Repub
lie.
France's long-standing positio'
on disarmament has been that a'
atomic stockpiles be destroyed an
strict control be instituted ove
delivery systems.

that institution moved its physical
plant from the center of Mexico
City to the outskirts, but he said
the unrest was explained by the
various problems that the shift
brought about.
Protest Move
"Students barricaded the' Uni-
versity and the army had to be
called in. Fortunately there was
no armed conflict," he said.
"However, the Latin American
situation goes deeper than that,.
I think. Perhaps two factors are
instrumental:
"First, when one registers as a
member of a Latin American Uni-
versity, he has a permanent mem-
bership, whether he attends
classes or not. Therefore, some
persons register and .then devote
their efforts organizing small cells.
Their mission is purely political,
and so is the unrest they create.
Mobile Faculty
"Second, these universities have
no permanent faculty. There
teachers are, by and large, pro-
fessional people who come out
from town to teach a course for
a semester or two."
The president added that this
fact tended to decrease the aura
of stability at the university. He
said that this survey was not a
part of the Ford mission but an
interest of his own.
"I don't know how far into the
matter I'll get," he said. "But I'll
make all the inquires I can."

Units Clash
In Katanga
ELISABETHVILLE (P) --Shoot-
ing flared between United Nations
troops and President Moise Tshom-
be's armed forces in Northwest
Katanga yesterday, menacing the
truce in effect since the battle of
Elisabethville last December.
Both sides agreed hostilities
erupted at Kaminaville, 12 miles
south of the Belgian-built, UN-
garrisoned military and air base
at Kamina. Each side blamed the
other.
Tshombe charged 1,200 UN
troops attacked Kaminaville,'
launching the assault with a heavy
mortar and artillery barrage short-
ly before noon.
Attack Troops
A UN spokesman in Leopoldville,
Dik Lehmkuhl, denied this. He de-
clared Katanga gendarmes at-
tacked UN troops in the area and
that the latter returned the fire
"to extricate themselves."
Indian and Swedish troops
normally man the sprawling col-
lection of military installations
and hangare at Kamina. It is a
base for Swedish, Ethiopian and
Indian jet fighters and bombers,
but Tshombe said he received no
reports that aircraft were sent
aaginst Kaminaville.
Many Wounded
He said the town held out in
bitter fighting and that there was
an undetermined number of killed
and wounded on both sides.
Tshombe told a news conference
"this (Kaminaville) attack is a
deliberate attempt by the UN to,
sabotage my talks with Premier
Cyrille Adoula." But he added, "It
will not succeed."

By JAMES NICHOLS
"A confusing bedlam of chaotic
infomation which is difficult to
plow through" makes the study of
the 19th Century economic history
of India difficult according to Prof.
Morris D. Morris of the University
of Washington economics depart-
ment.
Prof. Morris spoke on "Some As-
pects of Indian Economic Growth
and Stagnation During the Nine-
teenth Century" at 8:00 last night
at Rackham.
Prof. Morris cited "political in-
stability" as an important factor
determining India's economic ac-
tivity. Because of India's great
size, its insufficient water trans-
portation, the monsoons which
seasonally interrupted communi-
cations, and the absence in India

Though few records are avail-
able for the 100 years before 1880,
he felt that the growth rate was
"relatively slow" in the early 19th
Century.
Prof. Morris questioned the
"great myth" of a huge Indian
textile industry supposedly de-
stroyed by competition with mass-
produced English cloth. Most of
the textile industry grew in India
in response to European demand,
he said.
Only.an "infinitesimally small
percentage of the population" was
engaged in making fine textiles, he
explained. Most of the Indian
weavers were producing coarse
cloth with which the British could
not compete effectively because of
transportation costs.

cloth," he said.
Prof. Morris cited a "frontier
movement of significant impor-
tance" during the 19th Century in
India. Once political stability had
been established by the British,
capital became available for culti-
vating additional lands.
Begin Specializing
"A tendency toward regional
specialization developeddwhich saw
a larger proportion of the land
devoted to the crop best suited for
it," he said.
Because these advantages were
not offset by an increased popula-
tion growth rate, they resulted in
a high per capita income for the
Indians, he said.
Prof. Morris attributed the de-
