Proposal Resembles
Last Fall's Offer
With Minor Changes
By CAROLINE DOW
Wayne State University has re-
newed its proposition to the Legis-
lature to raise tuition in exchange
for a $120 dollar increase per stu-
dent in its appropriation.
With minor changes, the "pack-
age deal" offered to the Legisla-
ture last fall has been renewed.
WSu would raise its tuition by
$30 g semester, making its rates
the same as the University's, and
the Legislature would raise the ap-
propriation by four times that
amount
Such a plan would increase
WSU's tuition revenue by about
$600,000 and its tax income by
about $2.4 million.

Wisdom
Said Key
To :Future
President Claims
History Aids U.S.
BERKELEY (P)-President John
F. Kennedy, before the largest
crowd he has ever addressed in one
place, declared yesterday that the
tide of history is sweeping the
world away from Communism to-
ward democracy and freedom.
"Knowledge, not hate, is the
passkey to the future," Kennedy
told an audience of 88,000, largest
crowd in the history of the Univer-
sity of California's 80,000 seat Me-
morial Stadium.
Mankind must seek eternally to
acquire knowledge and apply it
with wisdom, he said in a speech
prepared for delivery at the cele-
bration of the 94th anniversary of
the university's charter day.
History Beneficial
And with a revolution for na-
tional independence "a fundamen-
tal fact in our era," the President
asserted, "no one who examines
the modern world can doubt that
the great currents of history are
carrying the world away from the
monolithic idea toward the plural-
istic idea-away from Communism
and toward democracy and free-
dom."
While Americans may look with
confidence on the direction history
is taking the world, Kennedy said,
they must reject "oversimplified
theories of international life."
Among these he cited "the theory
that American power is unlimited,
or that the American mission is to
remake the world in the American
image."
Foreign Aid
In its aid programs, Kennedy
said, the United States must try
to help newly developing countries
achieve "genuine national inde-
pendence."
Its military policies, he added,
must help other nations "protect
the processes of democratic reform
and developmentiagainst disrup-
tion and intervention."
The possibility of Soviet co-
operation in space enterprises
"opens up exciting prospcts of
collaboration in other areas of
learning," Kennedy said.
"And cooperation in the pursuit
of knowledge can hopefully lead
to cooperation in the pursuit of
peace."
Group Pickets
Kennedy Tall
BERKELEY (P)-A picket line
two blocks long, protesting federal
administration actions, marched
in front of the University of Cali-
fornia Memorial Stadium yester-
day as crowds surged by to hear
President John F. Kennedy speak.
Some signs read: "JFK Stinks,"
"Stop Testing," "Who Approved
the War in Viet Nam?" "Peace in
Cuba," "Abolish HUAC."
The picket line was organized
by an ad hoc committee at the
university two hours before the
start of Kennedy's address within
the stadium.
A committee spokesman esti-
mated there were 500 pickets in
the line. Their march wasfbrisk
and orderly. A single uniformed
officer watched them, but crowds
hurrying to the stadium paid little
attention.

JOHN A. HANNAH
... seeks postponement

Delta College President Samuel
Marble is "cautiously optimistic"
about the possibility of the Legis-
lature's approving making Delta a
four-year institution.
The Senate passed the bill 30-0
last week; the proposal comes be-
fore the House of Representatives
in the near future.
The bill would make Delta a
unique experiment in Michigan
higher education.
Lists Powers
It would grant the college au-
thority to give degrees, make Delta
eligible for state appropriations
and allow the three counties which
support Delta to vote one-half mill
more of taxes to the college's
operation.
Delta, a community college for
the Bay City, Saginaw and Mid-
land triangle, has also been offered
$3 million additional support from
a local corporation for capital im-
provements if it can raise a
matching $1 million by the end
of the year.
The matching money could come
partly from private and local aid.
Thus, if all goes well, Delta will be
supported by state, local and pri-
vate sources of income, a unique
financial position for a Michigan
institution.
Future Expansion
Already serving a day-student
body of 4,000, over 90 per cent of
which are from the three support-
ing counties, Delta expects to ex-
pand to 7,000 students by 1972.
Formed less than a year ago by
Legislative action, Delta is on tri-
mester and will begin its third
semester/next month.
Delta's formation and expansion
is part of a statewide movement

Asks Recess
Of Con-Con
LANSING MP)-A proposal that
the Constitutional Convention re-
cess about April 15 and then re-
convene after the November elec-
tions was presented yesterday by
John A. Hannah (R-East Lans-
ing),
Hannah, president of Michigan
State University, made the sugges-
tion in a speech on the convention
floor in which he acknowledged
that there would be several ob-
stacles to overcome.
Most delegates sampled at ran-
dom threw cold water on the idea,
some terming it "ridiculous and
impractical."
More Sessions
Under the Hannah proposal, the
convention awould expand its work
schedule so that the delegates
would meet three sessions a day,
five days a week. Sessions would
run from 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., with
breaks for lunch and dinner.
The convention then might be
able to complete first and second
reading consideration of all mat-
ters and recess by April 15, recon-
vening Nov. 12, the Monday after
the election.
Hannah indicated he felt there
was too much political wrangling
over the proposed new constitu-
tion.
Outlines Benefits
He said the new calendar would:
-Permit public reaction to be
heard on all the convention's ten-
tative decisions for the guidance
of the delegates.
-Complete work on the consti-
tution at a date much closer to
the April 1963 election when it'
will be submitted to the voters.
Hannah proposed that the com-
mittee on style and drafting as-
semble a tentative constitutional
document for the information of
all the people so that they might
have an opportunity to give dele-
gates their guidance in the recess
interim.
Chilly Reaction
The idea got a cool reception
from most delegates.
George Romney (R-Bloomfield
Hills) who hopes to get the Re-
publican nomination for gover-
nor, said he would take no position
on the proposal and would abstain
if it came up for a vote on the
floor.
Some GOP delegates said that
perhaps as many as 30 conven-
tion members may decide to run
for the Legislature. Under the pre-
vailing legal interpretation, such
delegates must resign before the
election is held.

that prohobits circulation of peti-
tions in the Michigan Union.
He was exonerated because he
had reported the violation to the
elections director and satisfactor-
ily completed requirements set by
the director to rectify it.
Thursday the Committee receiv-
ed a complaint that Monberg had
submitted false information to the
elections director and deliberately
falsified his testimony.
Invalidation
"Since the requirements set by
the elections director were based
upon false information presented
by Monberg, the legal rectification
which Monberg claimed was inval-
id,' the report stated.
"Monberg deliberately falsified
his testimony before the commit-
tee," and thus it was recommend-
ed that he not be seated.
The difference between the cases
of Monberg and Miss Ford as
pointed out in the report were
that "Monberg testified falsely"
whereas Miss Ford "testified hon-
estly" and "if the Council were to
seat Monberg it would allow to go
unpenalized two instances of fal-
sification of information and an
established and legally unrecti-;
fied violation of its petition rules."
Ford Already Penalized
Miss Ford, the report noted, has
already been penalized by disqual-
ification from. the election.
In the report the committee ex-
plained a candidate had been dis-
qualified if he had deliberately
violated a petition or election rule
with knowledge of the rule, or if a
candidate accidentally violated a
rule and did not report it to the
election official.
In the latter case, the candidate
would have to follow procedures
which that official stated would
legally rectify the violatioh.
No Action on Stuffing
The committee considered a
number of complaints concerning
ballot stuffing, but was not able to
substantiate any of the charges.
The report emphasized that the
committee did not recommend the
election be invalidated because of
extensive irregularities and/or
frauds in the election process it-
self.
The report stated that even the
number and character of the al-
leged irregularities would not have
significantly distorted the election
results.
Irregularities in the petitioning-
process are not of the same status
as irregularities in the entire elec-
tion and do not merit the invali-
dation of the entire election, the
report explained.
Complaints against candidates
not elected to the Council were not
considered. A complaint against
Batlle was studied, witnesses were
called, but it was not substanti-
ated.

Student Government Council refused to seat Lawrence Monberg,
'63, yesterday after accepting the final report of its Credentials and
Rules Committee concerning the disqualification and seating of can-
didates, and the certification of the election.
Before Kenneth Miller, '64, Richard G'sell, '64E, Katherine Ford,
'64, Howard Abrams, '63, and Fred Batlle, '64A&D, took their places
as the newly-elected members of the Council, the committee report
was read, outlining the reasons for not seating Monberg.
His half-year position will remain unfilled until the Council takes
further action.

The committee, which had been meeting for more than 24 con-
secutive hours, explained in its report that on Tuesday Monberg had

Congo Talks
Grind to Halt
LEOPOLDVILLE (') - Unity
talks between Premier Cyrille
Adoula and Katanga President
Moise Tshombe have reached a
crisis, usualy reliable sources said
yesterday.
The informants said the trouble
came when Tshombe insisted that
he must be regarded as a chief of
state negotiating with anothe
chief.
Persons in touch with the talk
expressed pessimism and one
called this "the showdown stage.'
The informants said Adoula i
annoyed at Tshombe's insistenc
that any agreement reached on ar
end to Katanga's secession musi
be referred to the Katangan par.
liament in Elizabethville for rati-
fication.
Adoula wants to talk solely or
the basis of the eight points the
two leaders reached at Kiton
last December, they said. The pre-
mier holds that Tshombe alone
can commit his copper-rich prov-
ince to return to Leopoudville'
rule.

The agonizing experience of en-
tering registration with a beauti-
ful program only to discover all
one's planned courses already
closed may soon become a mere
memory. !
Under the University's new pro-
gram of pre-registration for most
frequently elected courses, Edward
G. Groesbeck, director of the of-
fice of registration and records,
says nearly every student should
be able to register for the program
he selects.
For the past two weeks, stu-
dents wishing to enroll in astron-
omy, 111, botany 101 and 102,
chemistry 222, English 231, 232
and 269, Latin 103 and 211, philos-
ophy 131, 133 and 134, psychology
100, 101, 110 and 410 and zoology
101, 103, 251 and 282 have been
pre-registering for these courses
on a "first come, first serve" basis.
Students wishing to enroll in
these courses first see their coun-
selors and then go to the Admin-
istration Bldg. to fill out class
cards and sign up.
This system allows the registra-
tion office to tellthe departments
which courses are in demand so
that they may make necessary
adjustments in faculty and room
assignments and to expand cer-
tain offerings.
When all possible sections are
filled, counselors will be notified
so that they will be able to advise
students to change their programs
months in advance instead of dur-
ing the hectic three days of regis-

Gov. John B. Swainson yesterday told the economics section of
the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts and Letters that research is
the means by which the state will regain its leadership in industry.
His speech was followed by a panel discussion of Michigan's,
economic future, moderated by Prof. Daniel Fusfeld of the economics
department.
"To me, it is as if Michigan industry is short-changing itself
by not putting its brainpower to work," the governor said. "Our
university scientists could have done just what has been done in
Massachusetts and California in scientific-industrial development."
