A minister, burdened with parochial judgements, cannot be ex-

purely physical in nature, Dr. Gold explained.
A psychiatrist may claim sometimes to take the place of religion,
but he deals with disturbances and their solutions, not principles, Dr.

and conflicts may lose sight of the principles which make up human
destiny." he noted.

Over Taxes
Democrats Refuse

Acting city Editor
The Legislature is deadlocked
over taxes again.
Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-Ann

they would supply the 10-15 extra
votes needed in the House to pass

scuttled early last week in the

56-Just enough votes to pass a
bill, cannot hold enough of their
members in line to pass the entire
nuisance tax package. A handful
of legislators always seem to vote
against one or another of the indi-
vidual taxes, for private reasons.
Bursley said however that the
House Taxation Committee will
report out the $69 million GOP
package without recommendation,
in hopes that it can be "worked
out on the floor."
"I don't see how the deadlock
could last too long. This is an elec-

Justice Department Intervenes
GREENSBORO (UP) - The De- '-

partment of Justice stepped into a
desegregation suit here yesterday,
asking the courts to nullify the
separate-but-equal provision of
the Hill-Burton Act on Federal
Aid for hospital construction.
Federal attorneys filed papers
with United States middle dis-
trict court asking permission to
intervene in a suit by 11 Negroes
who seek to force desegregation of
staffs and facilities of two Greens-
boro hospitals.
Negroes Suit
The Negroes' suit, filed Feb. 12,!
accuses Moses H. Cone Memorial
Hospital and Wesley Long Com-
munity Hospital of discriminating
against Negroes in violation of the
14th amendment to the United
States Constitution.
The Hill-Burton Act, which be-
came law at the close of World


War II, has been used to channel
hundreds of millions of dollars
into the construction of hundreds
of hospitals.
The Justice Department also
asks the courts to rule that the
two h o s p i t a I s discriminated
against Negroes in violation of the
No Hearing Date
No hearing date on the depart-
ment's motion was set. A motion
by attorneys for the hospital trus-
tees, asking the suit be dismissed,
is to be heard next Monday.
The Department's action, an-
nounced in Washington by United
States Atty. Gen. Robert F. Ken-
nedy, apparently caught parties
to the suit by surprise.

Francis Cites Senate Agreement;
Matthaei Sees Boost in Fall Term
A tuition boost appears unavoidable.
Senate Majority Leader Lynn 0. Francis (R-Midland)
said yesterday that there is general agreement in the Senate
that there will be no increase in appropriations to any state
college or university that did not raise tuition.
Regent Frederick C. Matthaei of Ann Arbor, viewing the
bleak appropriations prospect, said that "in my personal opin-
ion we will have to raise student fees next fall." He added

other Regents concurred with
him on tuition.
A final decision will not be
made until after the Legislature
has completed appropriations.
Increase State Funds
The Regents have asked a $4-5
million increase in state funds for
the University's operating budget
in the coming year. University
Executive Vice-President Marvin
L. Niehuss has said that "neces-
sary salary increases alone would
be in excess of $4 million if we did
what we should and we need funds
for other things than salaries."
If the University does not re-
ceive these funds from the state,
he said, "the only source I can!
see would be a tuition increase."
Regent Irene E. Murphy of Bir-
mingham, while declining to com-
ment on the probability of a tui-
tion increase, said about Francis'
statement, "All that means is the
Legislature wants somebody else to
do the taxing."
Francis noted that, at this time,
the size of any increase in Univer-
sity appropriations would not be
tied to the amount of funds
brought in by tuition boosts.
Regent Donald M. D. Thurber
of Grosse Pointe noted that tui-
tion would be "a subject of very
careful consideration at the May
Regents meeting."
On This Subject<
Other senators have also ex-1
pressed opinions favoring a tuition
boost. Sen. Arthur Dehmel (R-
Unionville). a member of the Sen-
ate Taxation Committee, has saidz
"I think in all fairness to the tax-
payers there should be an increase
in tuition rates so long as the Uni-
versity receives additional funds 1
from the state."S

propriations Committee, has alsot

two separate institutions. In 1868,
a private medical school was

From these institutions evolved

known as Wayne State University
n 1956.
Basic curricula offered by the
university include a general cur-
riculum, curriculum in science,
pre-professional studies, teacher
preparation, and a special curri-
culvmn offering a comprehensive
background knowledge or inten-
sive specialization. A Junior-Year-
n-Munich program is offered by
he school as well as opportunities

Admittance to WSU generally
requires graduation from an ac-
ciedited high school,. fifteen ac-

mendation of the rrincipal.
Twenty-one thousand students
are served by the Detroit Institute
of Arts, Detroit Public Library,

100-acre main campus itself is
valued at $38 million in buildings,
rounds and equipment.
