Students Picket Capital
For 'Turn Towards Peace'

Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON=More than 5,-
000 students demonstrated here
yesterday asking a limit to the
arms race and +a fundamental
change in government policy to
initiate a "Turn Towards Peace."
Students picketed the White
House, met with Soviet embassy
officials, visited President John F.
Kennedy's advisers, marched to
the Tomb of the unknown Soldier
and concluded their project with
a rally on the grounds of the
Washington Monument.''
Five students, met With Jerome
Weisner, an adviser to the Presi-
dent for scientific affairs. Weisner-
conveyed the President's support
for the students' action and dis-
cussed the implementation of the
program of initiatives the students
The atmosphere of the meeting
was one of optimism and the stu-
dents were left with the impression
the program was seriously being
considered by the President, they
Visit Soviets
i Simultaneously other students
visited the Soviet embassy, meet-
ing top officials. Oleg M. Soko-
lov, press attache of the embassy,
said students had asked about
similar groups in the Soviet Un-
ion and were told to contact the
Soviet Committee of Youth Orga-
nizations, the chief body of youth
activity in the USSR.
Peter Goldmark, of Harvard
University, said the group would
follow theySoviet suggestion by at-
tempting to send two delegates to
the USSR to explain their position
to Russian students and officials.
Students picketed the White
House continuously from Friday
morning until yesterday after-
noon. By noon, students had ar-
rived to form the largest White
House picket in 20 years. Thou-
sands of students overflowed into
adjacent Lafayette Square.
March to Tomb
From the White House the stu-
dents marched three abreast along
the two mile' route to Arlington
National Cemetery. A delegation
of seven students laid a wreath at
the foot of the Tomb of the Un-
known Soldier.
The students, including 80 from
the University, then walked back
across the Potomac River to the
Washington Monument to hear
addresses by Norman Thomas,
Emil Mazey, secretary-treasurer of
the United Automobile Workers,
William Higenbotham, a promi-
nent nuclear physicist, and Philip
Barton and Jan Triggs, two stu-
dents associated with the project.
"I have been more thrilled than
I can tell you over the picketing,"
76-year old Thomas told the
marchers. "Time, talent, and mon-
ey needed for the betterment of
mankind are being spent instead
on the arms race," he noted.
. . ~ 'Warns Studentsr
He cited the necessity of a com-
mon turn toward peace, telling
the assembled students, "You will
not live to be my age unless
you stop the arms race."
Mazey called the Russian bomb
tests a crime against humanity,
and asked, "Why must we make
the same stupid mistake?"
"Americans," Mazey said, "are
more apathetic toward peace than
Europeans because its cities es -
caped destruction in the two world
Speaking against the resumption
of American nuclear testing, he
said, "no nation has the right
to use the air which everybody
breaths as a sewer for its radio-
active garbage."
During yesterday's picketing,
100 members of the Washington
chapter of the Young Americans
for Freedom counter picketed
across the street from the White

House. "We don't believe the peace
marchers represent the majority of
the United States students," YAF
coordinator Fulton Lewis, III said.
Faubus Raps

Orval E. Faubus said yesterday
that any University of Arkansas
faculty member responsible for
Dr. Albert Ellis' talk on sex at
the university Tuesday should
apologize or be fired.

On Arms at Swarthmore
special To TJ'e Daily
SWARTHMORE-Almost 300 students from 80 schools are attend-
ing the first Intercollegiate Conference on Disarmament and Arms
Control here this weekend.1
Designed to educate the student peace movement, the conference
brings together more than 20 authorities on disarmament for a three-
day round of speeches, seminars and discussion groups.
In his keynote speech Friday night, Sen. Joseph Clark (D-Pa) said
the conference was dealing with "'the most urgent problem confronting
-four nation and the world today:

Radock's Goal:
Better'U' Image
Director of University Relations Michael Radock has a unique
assignment: he must sell the people of Michigan on the problems
of the University.
As public funds grow more scarce, he must convince the
people that higher education in general and the University in
particular need their ever-increasing support. His program for
this, task is "Operation Michigan," a statewide campaign to gain
greater public understanding and support for higher education.
Rep. Charles Boyer (R-Manistee) has said that he is "ap-
palled at the public image Michigan people have of higher
education. The public is not demanding more money for higher
education, nor does it seem worried in the least about education's{
Launches Operation
This is one reason why Radock has launched his "Operation
Michigan" on a statewide basis. Legislators have complained
about a lack of information on the needs of higher education;
"Operation Michigan" will supply it.
Michigan editors have reported that people are confused and
disturbed by "educational waste and inefficiency," research op-
erations, the size of the University, admissions policy, duplications
of services, "frill courses," lack of cooperation between institu-
tions, "hysteria in higher education," and full utilization of"
But most important, since the University is dependent uponP
public support for both operational funds and capital expendi-
tures, "Operation Michigan" will have to present the people with
an "Image of the University"-the real image.
'No Secret Device'
Radock says that "there is no secret device by which the
University can have good public relations, but the best selling
point is the product which is produced"-in- other words, the
students which the University graduates and the accomplish-
ments it achieves are the best proof of its excellence..
Radock's program includes six principal objectives:
To show how the work at the University directly benefits
individuals, communities, commerce, the state and the nation.
To demonstrate that the University is spending tax funds
wisely and effectively.
To answer forthrightly criticism of the University and higher.
Alert Public
To alert the public to the severe challeges which face higher
To show that quality education is an expensive service which
is not obtained at "bargain basement" prices.
To warn the state of the risk it runs in allowing an institu-
tion as the University to lose its effectiveness.
This willnot be an easy program to sell, and Radock has4
found in his previous experience with Ford Motor Company thatf
the "soft sell" is received better by the public than the "hardf
sell." Consequently, the University is instituting a program of Nt.
friendly persuasion, rather than
an out -and -out appeal. By
pointing out the excellence of>
University activities, it is hoped{
that the people themselves will
see the need for continued
financial support.
Propose Activities K
Several activities have been

well-received, Radock says. He quoted one member of the au-
dience as having said "Take your story to every nook and crannyi
where anyone who will take the time to listen will gather with
you. You are to be congratulated on this presentation. Both th
time and the timing were excellent."
Similar meetings are planned for Port Huron, Kalamazoo,
and Bay City during February and March.
Area Dinners
Another gathering is the Area Dinner Meeting, which is
similar to the Saturday Symposium, only held on a week night.}
Such a meeting was held in Grand Rapids early in December..4
Third is a "Saturation-type Program," requiring the simul-
taneous scheduling of University speakers at a series of lunch-$

eons, dinners and meetings in one city on the same day. Groups
may include representatives of the various professions or special
interest groups.
Alumni Club briefings are also projected through the facili-E
ties and efforts of the Alumni Association. Such meetings would
be held in the homes of University alumni in many cities
throughout the state with prominent alumni and friends of theg
University joining legislators and University representatives-

Vietna mese Cancel,
MSU Aid Program
The government of Viet Nam has refused to extend a contract
with Michigan State University to maintain a civil service training
center in the South Asian country.
Published reports that the MSU center had been ousted are er-
roneous, MSU President John H'annah said last night.
"The contract is expiring in June and was not renewed. The gov-
ernment has a perfect right not to renew it," Hannah declared.
According to Hannah, and Alfred I. Seelye, dean of the MSU's
College of Business and Public Service, now in Saigon, one reason for

Offer Advice
On. Defense
By The Associated Press
Various state' and federal gov-
ernment officials yesterday offered
statements concerning nuclear
disarmament, fallout shelters and
advice. about the United States
civil defense program.
Military leaders in Washington
hinted at some new varieties of
nuclear weapons which can pro-
duce desired effects outside those
caused by explosions, defining
them as:
"Nuclear weapons designed to
achieve variation in the intensity
of specific effects other than nor-
mal blast effect."
To Examine CD
At the same time it was an-
nounced that the Administration's
expanded civil defense program
will come under critical scrutiny
next week by a Congressional
group that has urged more ambi-
tious efforts to save the popula-
tion in an all-out nuclear war.
President John F. Kennedy yes-
terday assigned various federal
departments the responsibility for
developing plans to cope with an
attack upon the United States.
Budget Director David E. Bell
advised the President that at the
present time an adequate plan does
not exist
Sailors Test Shelters
One hundred sailors went under-
ground yesterday to endure - two
weeks of boredom and assorted
discomforts so the Navy can learn
something about the effects of
prolonged stays in fallout shelters.
In Atlantic City, Benjamin C.
Willis, superintendent of Chicago
schools, advised that the public
schools should not be pressured
Into a crash program of building
fallout shelters.
Finally, in Washington, a report
by nine social scientists warned
that a "shelter-centered" civil de-
fense program poses serious diffi-
culties for American foreign policy
and democracy.
"Regardless of the carefully
qualified remarks of the President
in originally calling for civil de-
fense, the call was seen in both the
United States and in the Soviet
Union as a signal- that war was
near and that negotiations were
Vioenep JRta

the avoidance of nuclear war and
achievement of general disarma-
ment under enforced world law."
Secondary Issues
He contended that the nuclear
test ban, the civil defense issue,
though important, were definitely
secondary to the larger task, and
he advised that unilateral disarm-
ament is "completely unacceptable
politically here as well as in the
Communist countries."
The McCloy-Zorin agreement on
a common objective of general and
complete disarmament and of
strict controls provides a real basis
for progress, Sen. Clark said, but
he warned progress was hampered
by a "political lag" in the country
as well as in Congress.
Sen. Clark said that in the U.S.
and the USSR a "contest is being
waged for the minds of men in
power". between the forces for
disarmament and those who see
no end to the arms race. He claims
that the latter has "many strong
allies in Congress."
Role of Students
Harold Taylor, of the Peace Re-'
search Institute, speaking on
"Peace, War and the American
Student," yesterday said "We must
bring to bear on the disarmament
and peace question the full weight
of the American university com-
munity." He added that he saw no
difference between the obligations
of students and faculty members
in this regard.
Stating that universities must
be creative centers as well as pre-
servers of the heritage, Taylor said
the conference was an example of
rejection by students of "the entire
system of bureaucratic apparatus
of universities."
Among the experts who led dis-
cussion seminars yesterday was
Prof. Kenneth Boulding of the eco-
nomics department. About 10 stu-
dents from the University are at-
tending the conference, which was
conceived by three Swarthmore
College juniors, including David
Wegman of Ann Arbor.

the government's action was dis-
satisfaction with critical articles
written by MSU professors who
returned from working for the
Supports Position
"It's not that I necessarily agree
with everything in those articles,
I don't, but our position is that
we support the right of our pro-
fessors to write what they be-
lieve," Seelye said.
Prof. Milton C. Taylor, of the
university's economics depart-
ment, who wrote articles in the
New Republic and Pacific Review
critical of the regime, was not
concerned with the fate of the
project. Having served 20 months
in Viet Nam, he is no longer con-
cerned with it.
"i wrote these articles because
I felt the truth has not been told
about Viet Nam. The country is
supposed to be a viable bastion of
democracy, but its is neither viable
nor democratic," he explained.
Set Up Agen~cies
Under the seven-year program,
MSU officials set up South Viet
Nam's police force, a system of
universal identification cards, and
created the National Institute of
Administration which trains gov-
ernmental officials. When in peak
operation, 54 MSU officials work-
ed in the program.
Hannah indicated the program
was nearly completed and had the
contract been renewed only three
or four MSU personnel would
have gone to Viet Nam.
MSU Council
Accepts NSA
Michigan State University has
joined the National Student Asso-
By a 24-15 vote, MSU's Student
Congress joined the 400-member
organization Wednesday night.
The council decision followed three
hours of debate.
There has been constantly
awakening interest in NSA on
MSU's campus in East Lansing
this fall, NSA Regional Vice-
Chairman Greg Nigorsian said yes-
terday. "A committee report on
NSA was highly favorable on affili-
ation, on the basis of what the
association has done and can do.'
At its Wednesday meeting,
MSU's council heard several off-
campus visitors present their views
on NSA. Allan Howell, a Wayne
State University student who is
editor of "Conservative Thunder,'
debated against joining the asso-
ciation. *
The executive committee of the
Michigan Region of NSA, meeting
in Kalamazoo yesterday, speculat-
ed that more state colleges may
join the organization.

Con-Con To Formulat
Plan for Administerin

Set Message
By The Associated Press
Three' proposals by President
John F. Kennedy will come before
Congress this week: the /creation
of a department of urban affairs;
a $2 billion public works program
and a federal payroll plan.
As proposed in the President's.
economic message of Jan. 22, the
public works plan, to be used in
case of recession, would authorize
use of the following sums once
the President had determined
economic developments required
-up to.$750 million in speeding"
up direct federal outlays previously
authorized by Congress;
-up to $750 million for grants-
in-aid to state and local govern-
Grant Loans
-up to $250 million in loan to
states and localities which other-
wise could not meet their share
of project costs;
-up to $250 million more to be
distributed among the preceding
three categories as the President
saw fit.
The federal payroll program, in-
cluding raises for government
workers with superior skills, pre-
sumably will follow recommenda-
tions of a Presidential panel which
made broad 1 recommendations,
Wednesday. These proposals are
aimed generally at making pay for
skilled government workers equiv-
alent to that received for the same
work in non-government jobs.
Face Delay
The administration apparently
is facing at least a week's delay
in the Senate test on its con-
troversial proposal for creation of
the urban affairs department.
This also may postpone any
vote in the House, where adminis-
tration leaders say privately They
lack the strength to prevent a
Republican-Southern Democratic
coalition from killing Kennedy's
reorganization plan to set up the
new department.
Kennedy is represented as press-
ing for a roll call vote in uoth
houses to put opponents-particu-
larly big-city Republicans-on a
political spot in the fall campaign.
