Resignations Stir
Rumors, at MSU
College Officials Declare Reports
Exaggerate Seriousness of Situation
Twenty-seven faculty resignations at Thursday's meeting of the
Trustees of Michigan State University have triggered reports of a
mass resignation of MSU faculty members.
However, two MSU officials said yesterday that these reports
greatly overemphasized the seriousness of the situation.
MSU Trustee Frank Merriman said, "I don't see anything alarm-
ing about it. This, season of the year, you normally have many

WTilliamrs Sees Possiability
Of UN Action in Africa
WASHINGTON (P)-Assistant Secretary of State for African Af-
fairs G. Mennen Williams said yesterday it is a very distinct possibil-
ity UN police forces may be necessary to prevent a "conflagration"
in Ruanda-Urundi if Belgian troops pull out.
Williams, former governor of Michigan, said that, with inde-
pendence, it's likely that Belgian troops will be removed.
"When the Belgians go, it's quite possible that racial antagonisms
of the past will flareout and that there'll be fighting which might
result in a conflagration,"

Williams, recently returned from Africa, also reported that Pre-

Group, Asks
New Plan,
For Attack
Spearheaded by . Mrs. Angus
Campbell, several faculty mem-
bers are backing "a reasonable,
program for survival" in the event
of a nuclear war.
In a 10-point statement, the
group has called for planning
based on "realistic estimate of the
gravity and imminence of the
threat." It also notes that no pro-
gram will protect everyone but it
is possible to increase the number
that may survive.,
They note that "protection of
human life is our paramount
value" and that no one has the
right to decide for someone else
that life would not be worth living
after a nuclear attack.
Likelihood Remains
"The threat that all survival
programs, whatever their charac-
ter, tend to increase (or decrease)
likelihood of a nuclear war has
little supporting evidence," it is
asserted, but that the threat is
I grave enough to justify a carefully
planned and adjustable shelter
The group recommends that the
cost of the program be a part of
national defense budget, and that
the government be changed with
keeping the public fully informed
in the, matter.
Back Planning
"We support the planning of a
survival program," the statement
concludes, "not in the belief that
this will make victory . . . more
likely, but in recognition . . . that

moral obligation to protect our so-

'U' Fee Rate
Big Ten High
The new tuition schedule auth-
orized by the Regents makes the
University the most expensive of
any state-supported school in the
Big Ten for out-of-state students
to attend.
Previously the University had
been tied with Michigan State
University for the position of hav-

'resignations from the faculty
members who normally are chang-
ing for next year." He estimated
that this year's seasonal resigna-
tions were no more numerous than
last year's.
Not Startling
MSU President John A. Han-
nah said that the number of
resignations received Thursday was
"nothing very startling," but said
that, for several years, "we've been
getting more resignations than
we'd like."
Hannah attributed this loss to
MSU's faculty salary problem. He
explained that, though MSU's sal-
aries have increased, salaries of
other universities have increased
faster, so that MSU's relative po-
sition has suffered.
"Faculty members get the idea
they'd be better off at other Big
Ten schools-or even outside the
Big Ten," Hannah added.
Top Instructor's Pay
He noted ~ that, while MSU's
salaries to instructors are tops in
the Big' Ten, its salary rates to
professors rank near the bottom.
This loss of position has come
about because "Other states are
relatively more generous to their
institutions of higher education,
which has resulted in relatively
higher salaries there," Hannah
He estimated that MSU would
need a $2-$2.5 million appropria-
tions increase to remedy this prob-
lem, but added that the Legis-
lature was not expected to provide
this amount.

For Papers
Of Vandenberg
The University is presently ne-
gotiating for the late Sen. Arthur
II. Vandenburg's (R-Mich.) let-
ters and papers, University Execu-
tive Vice-President Marvin L. Nie-
huss said recently.
The Senator expressed a desire
for his papers to be placed in Cle-
menta Library. Among the papers,
consisting of letters, scrapbooks,
and some historical documents, are
documents from both his public
and private life.
Arthur Vandenberg, Jr., the sen-
ator's son, has written a book
based on the papers and has
brought them together in bound
form, Niehuss commented.
The late Sen. Vandenberg, a
University Qalumnus and an editor
of the Grand Rapids Herald, was
appointed United States Senator
in 1928 and was subsequently re-
elected through 1954. He was Re-
publican floor leader for many
years and took an active lead in
fostering the international ap-
roach to world affairs which many
people felt brought about the
adoption of the United Nations
Charter, Niehuss said.

Hint Trouble
In VU'Funds
The Detroit Free Press yester-
day hinted that the recent uproar
about the appearances of suspect-
ed Communists at the University,
Wayne State and Michigan State
Universities may well have an ad-
verse effect on their respective
Senate Appropriations Commit-
tee Chairman Elmer R. Porter (R-
Blissfield) was the key to a sim-
ilar controversy in 1960, when
WSU refused to reinstate a ban
on Communist speakers. The sen-
ator at that time threatened the
WSU appropriation and $200,000
was ultimately lopped off, though
Porter denied there was any con-
Implies Cut
The Free Press implies that the
Legislature this year, through the
Appropriations Committee and its
House counterpart, the Committee
on Ways and Means, will use the
speaker issue to slice funds off the
several appropriations in question.
For example, MSU is manuever-
ing to establish a medical school,
which, according to the Free Press,
the Porter committee wants to
block. The Communist speaker
hassle many provide a good "out."
No Indication
Outwardly, there has been no
indication that this fear-a budget
cut-might materialize over the
Communist speaker issue. Speaker
of the House Don' R. Pears (R-
Buchanan) has repeatedly dis-
counted any serious attempt to
doctor t1e University's budget for
feasons such as this, but he con-
cedes that it could perhaps be
limited, in one way or another by
lack of funds.
Porter still maintains that is
the reason for the WSU budget
cut two years ago.
The Free Press articl was care-
ful not to dispute that circum-
stance, but the paper made it clear
that it might have been something1
more than coincidence.1
Paraguay Sets
Free Elections
ASUNCION, Paraguay (R)-Pres-
ident Alfredo Stroessner, often3
called the dean of Latin American
dictators, said yesterday the 1963
national elections "will be entirely7
free" to all parties.<
The 49-year-old president, who
has ruled Paraguay since 1954,
announced he will be a candidate1
to succeed himself. Opposition par-
ties, their ranks thinned by, thet
growing number of Paraguayans 1
going into exile, have not saidt
whether they will take part inc
the election.z
The general asserted in an in-t
terview he felt he had the full
support of the people and ther
elections would prove it.f
He added, however, there was;
little prospect of lifting the statec
of siege, which was extended May1
18 for another 90 days.i

"At that time the United States
is very hopeful .. . that there will

there," Williams added.
He said it is quite probable the
Belgian troops will pull out July 1.
Since a UN commission got dec-
larations from both Ruanda and
Urundi saying they didn't want

possibility UN forces then would

that if the native forces are left to

To Relinquish
Law Deanship
After 6 Years
Closing out his six years as As-
sociate Dean of the Law School,
Russell Smith says he is "looking
forward to doing some teaching,
writing and research."
The Regents accepted his resig-
nation at their March meeting.
Beginning in the fall semester,
Prof. Spencer Kimball will assume
direction of legal research duties
which constituted the major area
of the associate deanship, al-
though the deanship itself will
be eliminated.
Dean Smith's position as co-
director of the Institute of Labor
and Industrial Relations, a joint
project of the University and
Wayne State University, has not
yet been filled.
Meanwhile, he will start to de-
vote more time to authoring "The
Labor Agreement," a book on the
collective bargaining process.
He will also collaborate with
Prof. Dallas Jones of the business
administration school on a study
of the impact of the legal doc-
trine on labor-management rela-
Other duties formerly handled
through Dean Smith's office have
been re-assigned as Prof. B. James
George will take a one-year leave
of absence and Prof. Alfred F. Co-
nard will devote additional efforts
to research.
Prof. Whitmore Gray will take
over from Prof. George as advisor
to foreign students in the Law
School, while Prof. Olin L. Brow-
der, Jr., will assume Prof..Conard's
responsibility of advisor to Amer-
ican and Canadian law students.

Political Controversies
Stir Wisconsin Students
New York Times News Analyst
A plaque on Bascom Hall at the University of Wisconsin reads:
"Whatever may be the limitations which trammel inquiry elsewhere,
we believe that the great State University of Wisconsin should ever
encourage that continual and fearless sifting and winnowing by,
which alone the truth can be found."
At the bottom of the hill that Bascom crowns, you may find a
Young Conservative throwing an egg at a Young Socialist, or vide

Cooper, who divides his time be-

many-faceted: responsibility to the

society, to the public, and, last
but not least, to the composer's
own creative integrity."

desire to communicate, to be un-

urge and an essential in elevating
mere self-expression to the level,
of art.
"4n the other hand, a creative
artist's integrity demands that he
choose his means of communica-
tion with absolute honesty, both
as to content and as to vocabulary.'
"This is perhaps the most con-

with which a composer, or any
artist, must deal throughout his
creative life," Cooper suggested.
