A complaint by Stanley Lubin, '63,
deals with election irregularities.
Miss Berliner charged that a
double standard was used in the
punishments of Lubin and Kath-
erine Ford, '64, and that of Mon-
berg. The first two were disquali-
fied by the committee for violating
petitioning regulations while Mon-
berg was cited for a violation, but
allowed to continue in the cam-
paign as he had previously com-
plied with orders given by elec-

This disqualification forms the
basis of Harrah's complaint. He
charged the "good faith" of voters
was violated. "Anyone who voted
after the disqualification had
knowledge that was not available
before," he said.

The IQC motion, while "heart-

general, said that problems in-
herent in such a conversion could
not be sufficiently resolved by fall.
The motion will be forwarded
to the Residence Halls Board of

Albert Fowerbaugh, '63, said that
if a year is not taken to fully re-

He cited difficulties in repre-

governments, lines of responsibil-
ity to deans offices and physical
changes necessary in the buildings.

at the expense of harming either

Meyerholz said that in the com-
ing year IFC must work positively
toward the elimination of all

with all houses that have clauses
so that, "in the future no house
comes up before SGC."

of the new rush plan, which goes

The presentation of John Lee
Hooker, singer and guitarists, is
the Michigan Folklore Society's
contribution to the Creative Arts
Although classified by the critics
as a folk singer, Hooker considers
himself to be mainly a blues singer
and differentiates the blues from
folk music by stating that folk
songs are those songs which are
identified with the people of a
country and are in the form of
a story or ballad. The blues is
the branch of folk music that
captures the spirit of the Negro
songs of the slave days in the
sauthern United States of the 19th
,century, he said.%
Hooker explains that he does
not sing the "bouncy-bouncy"
types of songs as do the com-
mercialized folk singers, but ra-
ther sings what he feels. The fail-
ure to "sing from the soul" is the

Leakey Discovers
Creature's Remains
The remains of a 14 million year old creature have been uncov-
ered in Kenya by Dr. L. S. B. Leakey, a British anthropologist.
The creature is neither like modern men nor apes: It represents
an entirely new class of primate, the order of mammals which in-
cludes both man and apes. Its discovery "fills one more of the im-
portant and major gaps in our story of human evolution," Leakey
The fossils indicated that the creature had characteristics of
being definitely "nearer to something that eventually gave rise to
To Determine Value
"It is difficult to determine the value of these few findings with-
out examining them myself, but if they are accurate-and Leakey
is an accurate worker-then they are a very important find." Prof.
James Spuhler, chairman of the anthropology department, said.
The creature may represent the earliest link yet discovered in
the chain of evolution leading directly or indirectly to modern man.
Leakey was also the discoverer, in 1959, of the 1 million year old
Zinjanthropus man, an early maker of tools.
Unearthed Fossil
In 1948; Leakey unearthed the fossil remains of the Proconsul,
man-like creature who is estimated to have lived 25 million years ago.
The Proconsul is believed by most anthropologists to represent the
"root stock" of higher primates.
"For many years there has been a gap in the fossil record between
the Proconsul and Zinjanthropus. This new discovery is an inter-
mediary between the two," Prof. Spuhler noted.
Leakey said that there was no way yet to decide the sex of the
newfound creature. The only general physical characteristics which
could be determined was that "it was not as heavy or as big as a
Expert Group
"Now a group of experts will attempt to make certain about the
accuracy of the discovery. There are a number of radioactive dating
methods. In general, there are two ways. They associate the fossilized
fragments with rocks and then date the rocks by radioactice methods,"

Co-ed Unit.
Co-educational housing and au
tomatic apartment permissions for
senior women, should prove to be
important first steps in improv-
ing student attitudes toward the
residence halls, Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis
said yesterday.
Neither change will go into ef-
fect 'at least until the fall semes-
ter, Lewis said. Both- Lewis and
University President Harlan
Hatcher have promised that no
changes in Office of Student Af-
fairs personnel or policy would
take place until the OSA Study
Committee report was acted upon
by the Regents.
Lewis explained that this ap-
plied only to changes taking place
this semester, not to those taking
effect later. "There will be abso-
lutely no changes for the balance
of this year."
Co-ed Housing
The OSA report asked for co-ed
housing and permitting all upper-
class students to live in off cam-
pus living units. Lewis said he
agreed with these recommenda-
tions of the report, claiming that
"they strengthen the opinions
reached in our own considerations
of the problems."~
Stressing the need to eliminate
the separation of men's and wo-
men's living units, Lewis explained
that the University has been
"firmly committed" to co-ed hous-
ing for several years. "The time
to experiment is over. We have
considered the idea all year and
see no reason not to go ahead with
permanent changes in the halls
whenever administratively feas-
The Residence Halls Board of
Governors Monday adopted a re-
port recommending co-ed housing
instituted in Alice Lloyd Hall and
East Quadrangle on a temporary
basis next semester and perman-
ently thereafter.
Directed Shiel
The board-under Lewis' chair-
manship - directed FrancisnC.
Shiel, manager of Service Enter-
prises, to head a committee to in-
vestigate the possibilities of co-ed
housing in existing facilities.
Co-ed housing was tried in the
early 1950's when the number of
women students was too great for
the dormitories to handle. "Dur-
ing the two or three years that
Mary Markley Hall was planned
and constructed, the men residents
who first opposed the idea of co-
ed housing grew to like it.

the University pledged itself to
co-educational housing andrplans
for such a unit, Joseph Bursley
Hall, on North Campus, were
formulated, Lewis said. Student
enrollment, however, has not ex-
panded to the level where an extra
living unit is required.
Permanent physical changes will
have to be made to convert the
present units for use by the op-
posite sex. These will be financed

Says People Unable
To Make Decision
On Assessment Plan
Special To The Daily
LANSING-Gov. John B. Swabin-
son today promised to veto a pro-
posed popular referendum on a
statewide income tax if the bill
reached his office.
The proposal, made Wednesday
by Senate Taxation Committee
Chairman Clyde H. Geerlings (R-
Holland), would place the question
on thedregular November ballot.
Two - thirds majorities in both
houses are required to place the
bill before the Governor.
In a special interview yester-
day, Swainson cited the large vol-
ume of material on which his tax
proposals are based. The people of
Michigan do not have the infor-
mation necessary to make such. a
decision, he said, "That's why they
send us up here to govern you."
Refers to Article
The governor also referred to
Article X, section two of the state
constitution, which reads in part:
"The Legislature shall provide by
law for an annual tax sufficient
with other resources to pay the
estimated expenses of the state
government . ."
"It doesn't say 'the governor'
and it doesn't say 'the people',"
Swainson mused. "It says 'the
If released by the committee,
Swainson's income tax proposal
will need 18 votes to pass in the
Senate. He was "somewhat opti-
mistic" over a Democrat-Moderate
coalition which united yesterday
to defeat a proposal which would
have effectively killed "Rule Nine."
Rule Nine forbids state-licensed
real estate men to discriminate in
selecting their customers.
But Swainson noted that the
16-member coalition was not large
enough to pass the income tax he
Looking for Votes
"We're still- looking for two
votes," he said.
. Swainson also asserted that
state supported schools in Michi-
gan have not been given enough
money. This is obvious because
"the salary increases which are
the basis for attracting and re-
taining the best teachers and in-
structors have not been made."
It is impossible to allot sufficient
revenue to the schools, even with
cooperation by the Legislature,
under the present tax program in
Michigan, Swainson said. "I will
not recommend a budget requir-
Ing a tax we do not have," he ex-
Doubts Competence
"I don't thinkethe Legislature
is competent in the teaching
area," Swainson said, referring to
a bill passed yesterday by the
House requiring anti - Communist
courses in Michigan schools.
The governor also expressed
disapproval of the "loyalty oath"
provision recently passed by the
"No loyalty oath ever caught a
Communist," he said. "If I were
bent on subversion, I wouldn't
hesitate to take a loyalty oath."

he can better project the rhythm
of the blues.
"Boogie Chil'n"
In his song "Boogie Chil'n,"
written in 1949, he first captured
the rhythm which Chubby Check-
er was to later make famous as
the twist. It was also with this
song that he was given his first
big break in that same year in

Detroit. But his rise to fame was
a long struggle.
Hooker was born in the "blues
neighborhood," a small town in
Mississippi. It was here that he
got his first exposure to the music
for which he was to become so
fond. His step-father had an old
guitar which he often played be-
cause, as he admits, he did not
like to work.
When he was a little older he
got small jobs in local theaters..
He decided to "try his luck" and
"caught a train and hoboed to
the northern states." He spent
three years in Cincinnati, again
only being able to get small jobs.
