WASHINGTON ()-Russia's top space scientist hinted yesterday
that the Soviets might try this year to launch two or more astronauts

But academician A. A..Blagonravov indicated that Russia would
not try a manned mission to the moon before next year at the
earliest. In a report to a meeting of space scientists from 18 coun-
tries, he indicated that the Russians would attempt new manned
flights before 1962 is ended. How-

Battle Erupts
In Portugal1
LISBON (A') - Workers called
out by the Communist under-a
ground battled with police and
troops in Portugal's two largestr
cities yesterday in the most vio-
lent anti-government demonstra-
tions in years.-
The Salazar government
claimed that the fighting in Lis-
bon and Oporto to the north wasf
part of a general Communist plan
for uprisings throughout the coun-
In downtown Lisbon, workers
fought with police and troops for
more than three hours. Hundreds
of police swinging clubs and shoot-
ing rifles in the air scattered an
estimated 2,500 demonstrators at-
tempting to hold an anti-govern-1
ment rally in Blackhorse Square.
At least 17 demonstrators and
two policemen were reported hos-
pitalized. Dozens of demonstrat-
ors were taken to jails in Lisbon.
Scattered acts of violence con-
tinued through the night.
At Oporto, the nation's second
largest city175 miles northeastE
of this capital, police with clubs
charged crowds in the center of
the city. Eight persons were re-
ported hospitalized and 50 arrest-1
"The city looks like an armed
camp," said an eyewitness.
Gary Clinches
Runoff Spot
In Primary
Gov. Raymond Gary clinched a
spot in Oklahoma's primary runoff
election test last night in his bid
to become the first man to serve
two terms as governor.
Four other Democrats were
locked in a battle to oppose him
May 22 for the nomination.
But in Alabama, a state senator
and a former judge were running
ahead of James E. Folsom, another
ex-governor trying for a comeback.
State Sen. Ryand Degraffenreid,
running his first statewide race,
pulled ahead of former State
Judge George Wallace, a militant
segregationist who preached defi-
ance of federal courts.
Henry Bellmon, a wheat farmer
from Red Rock, overwhelmed
token opposition to win the Re-
publican gubernatorital nomina-
tion in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma Sen. Mike Monroney
virtually clinched the Democratic
nomination for a third senate term
without a runoff.
Sen. Lister Hill appeared headed
for renomination, for a seventh
term in Alabama. He was running
far ahead of two opponents.
The Alabama primary featured
a novel plan for reducing the
state's delegation in the House
from nine to eight because of the
1960 census. The legislature, un-
able to agree on a redistricting
plan, decided to nominate nine
men-one in each of the old dis-
tricts-and have them run in a

lic figures" to the post who do not
have qualifications for the kind of
leadership it requires.
After a three-year study of col-
lege campuses throughout the
country, financed by the Carnegie
Foundation, Dodds found that
"even the most educationally
minded president faces a constant
struggle against becoming en-
meshed in a network of support-

been delegated extensively to the
president's co-workers, he said.
There is a vice-president in
charge of business and finance,
and a vice-president for academic
affairs who handles the problems
and needs of the faculty. The ex-

More Requests
President tcher said that he
receives many more requests to
make apppearances than he is able
to fulfill. There are certain things
which take priority and require
his personal attention, but the
other matters are often aptly
handled by his colleagues.
"The many additional responsi-
bilities faced by the president to-
day that his predecessors did not
have to bother with come from
four major areas," President
Hatcher said.
Demands for an increase in en-
rollment and facilities are con-
stantly being made, the opening
up of new areas of knowledge has
created a need for reorganization

original statement referred back
to the group by Council for re-

the new budget for 1962-63, which
makes no major changes in Coun-

At the meeting an attempt will

Abrams' amendment concludes

public statement from the Board if
it rejects the senior editor's recom-

Asks Bonding
For College
Proposal Suggests
New Revenue Usage
To Reduce Deficit
Sen. Carlton H. Morris (R-Kala-
mazoo) proposed to the Senate
yesterday an $83 million nuisance
tax package that would include
a $150 million capital outlay bond-
ing plan for higher education.
Morris had proposed his plan
originally at the beginning of the
legislative session and hearings
with officials of Michigan univer-
sities were held. The proposal
would allow $25 million a year for
new construction. The balance of
the tax package revenues would
be used to pay the state's debt.
Univer ity Executive Vice-Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said al-
though University officials have
not yet studied the details of yes-
terday's proposal that early in the
year the original plan was a
"workable proposal."
Give Start
"It would give us a start on the
capital outlay we need"
Sen. Clyde H. Geerlings (R-
Holland) urged "consideration" of
the Morris proposal. Geerlings,
chairman of the taxation com-
mittee discharged by the coalition
of Republican moderates and
Democrats in the unsuccessful at-
tempt to pass an income tax, said
he would move today that all taxa-
tion measures be returned tothe-
tax committee for study.
Geerlings said that the Senate
would probably finish considera-
tion of tax proposal sometime in
the next two weeks. He added that
at least some of any additional
revenue proposed to the Senate
would go to pay the state's debt.
'Scrutinize Tax'
Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor), one of the leaders of the
pro-income tax coalition, said, "I
intend to scrutinize any nuisance
tax very carefully.
"They are tiad in theory, but it
is a matter of expediency in order
to give the people of this state the
appropriations needed."
Thayer speculated that the leg-
islature would impose taxes on
telephone and telegraph services,
boost the cigarette and beer taxes,
increase the corporation franchise
fee and inIpose taxes on services
and possibly advertising.
Follows Defeat
Yesterday's move followed Mon-
day night's defeat of a proposed
flat rate income tax. Most of the
moderate Republicans were re-
signed to a nuisance tax package
although some, like Thayer, felt
it would be only a "stopgap meas-
Thayer noted that many of the
proposed nuisance taxes, especially
the proposed telephone and tele-
graph levy, were "increasing the
burden on business."
Meany Cites
In GOP Acts
The principle reason why the
Republican party stands as a de-
feated minority party in Michigan
is that Republicans have compro-
mised their principles and have
failed to fight for the ideals their
party stands for, Edward Meany,
Jr. told a meeting of the Young
Republicans Club last night.
Meany, who is presently seeking
the Republican nomination to the

rUnited States Senate, maintained
that for the past 25 years Repub-
licans have made the mistake of
stating their beliefs in negative
terms, thus giving the impression
that they are "against everything
and for nothing."
In most cases, he said, there has
been no attempt to counteract this
impression and the wide play
which the opposition has given to
The Republican party does in

The French Revolution struck a series of blows to the whole con-

Prof. Ford reviewed economic and political aspects of the eras
of the Old Regime, the Revolution and the Restoration.
In pre-1789 society social categories were defined in strictly legal
terms and the only ones recognized as acceptable were orders ores-
