Desires Conference
To Discuss Weapons
French President Ignores Request
By lrushchev for Summit Talks
PARIS (AP) - President Charles de Gaulle called yesterday for
the destruction of existing nuclear weapons stocks, and urged a -con-
ference of major powers on destruction or control of nuclear weapons
delivery systems.
The French president, replying to Premier Nikita Khrushchev,
coldly ignored the Soviet leader's proposal for a summit conference
on disarmament, and merely said France is ready to discuss destruc-
tion, banning and control of weapons delivery systems.
Khrushchev had proposed adisarmament meeting of the heads
of 18,nations in Geneva on March 14.
Limit Participants
Perhaps with Red China in mind, de Gaulle said discussions on
nuclear disarmament should be limited to the four nuclear powers-
-Britain, France, the Soviet Union

May 'End&
NSA Vote
Two motions to rescind the
United States National Student
Association referendum passed last
week were submitted yesterday by
Michigan Union President Paul C.
Carder, '62, for consideration at
tomorrow's Student Government
Council meeting.
One motion explains the ration-
ale for the rescinding motion and
sets Council policy for NSA par-
ticipation. The, motion to rescind
requires a two-thirds vote of the
Council for passage. The policy
motion requires only a majority
In the motion, Carder--who co-
sponsored the original legislation
setting up tle referendum with
SGC treasurer Steven Stockmeyer,
'63,-explained that it was "for-
eign to the concept of NSA as a
confederation of student govern-
Warns of Extremists
He warned that the referendum
would provide an opportunity for
extremist groups to exploit.
The motion accuses NSA nation-
al officers of being "too weak to
stem the tide" and allowing the
organization to become a showcase
for extremist groups of the right
and left instead of a union of
student governments.
Under the terms of the motion,
SGC would suggest to regional and
national NSA officers the imple-
mentation of a "professionalso
S-ciety for student. government" ap-
Limit Delegates
Only members of the Council
could serve as delegates to the
national and regional NSA con-
gress and the number.of delegates
to the annual national congresses
would be limited to 11 under Car-
der's plyn.
The motion requests that NSA
appoint no University students to
an NSA post without SGC's know-
ledge and consent. No association
rojects on campus could be un-
dertaken without SGC clearance.
The motion mandate urges the
adoption of this policy by other
colleges and universities and man-
dates the Council to send copies
dof it to the NSA officers and Big

and the United States-and those
states which might soon have nu-
clear weapons at their disposal.
The text of de Gaulle's letter de-
livered Sunday in Moscow, was
released yesterday by the French
Foreign Ministry. In it, de Gaulle
said that to achieve real disarma-
ment, nations should concentrate
on the destruction of existing wea-
pons stocks, coupled with a ban
on further construction of those
This has been a long-standing
policy of France, which' entered
the atomic rage late and is lagging
far behind the United States and
Russia in the development of nu-
clear weapons. France is also be-
hind Britain in this race.
Spotlights Delivery
The French president put the
spotlight on weapons delivery sys-
tems and said their destruction
would be easier to verify. Nu-
clear weapons are now so numer-
ous and so dispersed that it would
be easy for a , country _to hide
them, and thus violate any agree-
ment for their . destruction, de
Gaulle said.
Destruction or limitation of
weapons delivery systems has also
been a standing French policy on
the, disarmament issue. Here
again, France lags behind the oth-
er major powers.
Lawsuit Seeks

officials at Jackson, Miss., to re-

railroad and bus terminals.
Acting Atty. Gen. Byron R.

yesterday, also asks that Mississip-

Glenn Shot
For Today
United States embarked last night
on final preparations to rocket
astronaut John H. Glenn Jr.
around the world through space
Mercury Operations Director
Walter Williams gave the word to
start the crucial second half of
the countdown at 11:30 p.m.
So encobraging was the forecast
a midnight briefing was cancelled.
Good Chances'
Barring some unforseen change
in the weather, or other hitch, the
chances were counted good for
sending the Marine Lieutenant
Colonel skyward sometime between
7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. today.
A late afternoon weather report
said conditions iri the Atlantic re-
covery areas "appeared favorable
for the mission." The only fly in
the weather ointment was that the
Cape Canaveral launch area might
be covered with broken clouds.
However, commanders of the Mer-
cury astronaut project hoped that,
if this occurred, they might find
a hole in the clouds to shoot
Glenn's Atlas rocket through.
The final countdown actually
covers six hours of tests, checks
and preparations, but the count
will extend over a period of eight
hours, allowing two hours of built-
in "holds" during which any final
needed corrections could be made.
Predict Good Weather
Should something delay today's
shot, the National Aeronautics
and Space Administration said the
good weather was expected to con-
tinue through tomorrow.
As the 11th date for his great
adventure neared, Glenn reported
he was ready. He reiterated that he
was not the least perturbed by
the delays stretching back to last
Dec. 20.
Speaking to newsmen, Glenn
said postponements are of no con-
sequence, because:
"I have been training and wait-
ing for three years, and a few
more days won't matter."

Committee Proposes
$8 Billion Program
resolutions committee of , the
American Association of School
Administrators yesterday proposed
that the federal government pump
an astronomical "$8 billion more a
year into the public schools.
This is 10 times the amount re-
quested by President John F. Ken-
nedy, and is by far the largest pro-
gram of federal aid to education
ever suggested. The administra-
tion's current proposal is for $2.5
billion, spread over three years.
The resolution will be debated
by the full convention of the AASA
tomorrow morning. If it is ap-
proved, as expected, it will become
the basis for the association's
legislative and lobbying platform.
Ask Grants
The resolution calls for direct
federal grants to the states of at
least $200 for each of the 40 mil-
lion public school pupils enrolled
from kindergarten through pub-
licly supported junior colleges.
The states would use the money
as they saw fit, for such projects
as classroom construction and
teacher salaries.
Charles West, superintendent of
the Fulton County, Ga., public
schools and chairman of the reso-
lutions committee, said the $200 a
pupil figure is considered an aver-
age need.
Determine Distribution
It would be up to Congress, he
said, to determine the distribution
by states, since "some states need
much more federal help than oth-
Current estimates are that the

more than $14 billion this year on

About Contract
By The Associated Press

the College of Business and Pub-
lic Service of Michigan State Uni-
versity yesterday spoke with Pres-
ident Ngo Dinh Diem regarding
the status of a contract between
MSU and the Vietnamese govern-

"was hurt and disappointed" by
critical articles written by univer-
sity professors who had been in

when a six year old contract with
the Vietnamese government is due
to expire.
Seelye said that the university
had a policy of allowing professors
to write what they believe, whether
or not the dean is in agreement
with their opinions.
The university representatives
have helped to set up many of
Viet Nam's administrative agencies
and to train officials.







On Higher E ducatio:

Roe en ok~t ''

Looking forward to his still
undefined duties as vice presi-
dent for academic affairs,
Roger W. Heyns, dean of the
literary college, yesterday ex-
pressed optimism and confi-
dence about the future of the
"I am convinced that the
University is great and its fu-.
ture will be as great as its past,"
he said.
He explained that the details
of his position have not yet
been fully worked out but will
evolve as the result of discus-
sion with University President
Harlan Hatcher and newly ap-
pointed Executive Vice Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss, former
vice president and dean of fac-
Notes Change
Heyns stressed the necessity
of visualizing the shift in posi-
tions as a change in the office
of the president .and. not the
insertion of a third echelon
between President Hatcher and
the deans of the various schools
and colleges.
The vice president for aca-
demic .affairs will sometimes be
reporting directly to President
Hatcher and sometimes working
closely with Niehuss, depend-.
ing upon the nature of a par-
ticular project.
Sees Problem
He considers the major prob-
lem facing him "the perennial
problem of the size and com-
plexity of the University and
the necessity of co-ordinating
different activities for effective
Expressing a strong interest
in undergraduate s t u d e n ts,
Heyns discredited rumors that
the University will become in-
creasingly graduate-oriented. "I
personally am very interested in


undergraduate education and
its quality. I believe this interest
is shared by my colleagues in
the administration and on the
faculty," he said.
He stressed the fact that the
University tries to hire faculty

overcome before large scale in-
dependent study is feasible.
Students must be prepared
for it, he said. It is necessary
to interpose a transition period
between high school and the
more liberal approach to aca-
demic study at the university
Dispels Notion
Heyns dispelled the notion
that independent study is
cheaper than the lecture sys-
tem. Although faculty members
teach fewer courses, they must
follow closely the progress of
individual students and devote
considerable time to each stu-
dent they, advise, he explained.
"Thus far, the University is
striving as far as is financially
possible to compromise between
the extreme of almost totally
independent study and mass
education at a lower level.".
Appointed dean of the liter-
ary college four years ago,
Heyns was the youngest man
ever to hold the office. He men-
tioned the growth of the honors
program, curriculum revision,
development of area and inter-
national programns, centers for,
rteaching and research in these
xareas and the Conflict Resolu-
'tion Center as major develop-
Sments during his deanship.
Loyal Faculty
He Is most proud, he said, of
the continuing loyalty of facul-
ty members to the University
despite the financial problems
it has undergone in the past
few years.
Heyns will continue to be
both dean and vice-president
until a new dean of the literary
college is named. In selecting a
successor, President Hatcher
will choose a faculty committee
from a panel elected by the
faculty. This committee will
then make a recommendation
for the position.

'Role Changes-
Discussing the changing role
of the student in both the so-
cial and academic life of the
University, Heyns said he fa-
vored advanced and indepen-
dent study programs and a
reduction of "spoon-feeding"
He cited the considerable

already made in this area but

Bus. Dispute Settlement
Prospects Dm nMao
MACON (P)-Prospects of an early settlement apparently worsen-
ed yesterday at the start of the second week of a Negro boycott of
segregated city buses.
The Rev. E. B. Paschal, a boycott leader, said that not even a
favorable court ruling ordering desegregation of bus seating would
insure an end to the boycott.
He said issues involving the hiring of Negro drivers and main-
tenance personnel also had to be settled.
At the same time Linton Baggs, president of Bibb Transit Co.,
indicated in a signed newspaper advertisement that he was not satis-
-fied a recent federal court order
to desegregate buses in Augusta
was binding in Macon.
Baggs devoted about two-thirds
of his ad to the dissenting opin-

AD)C Survey
On Apartments
More than half the junior wo-
men now living in dormitories
would move into apartments next
year if they had the opportunity,
preliminary surveys indicate.
The Residence Hall Board of
Governors yesterday heard the
first report on a survey made by
Assembly Dormitory Council con-
cerning the proposed apartment
pers for senior women.
With half the questionnaires
sent out to junior women re-
turned, Assembly Association Pres-
ident Sally Jo Swayer, '62, reported
that, according to these replies,
approximately 53 per cent (about
200 women) would leave the dorms
to live in apartments.
Sufficient Numbers
There would be a sufficient
number of apartments in the area
to handle this number, Miss Sawy-
er said, even though some of these
facilities would be located on the
periphery of Ann Arbor. "This
problem would be alleviated by the
University regulation allowing sen-
iors to have cars on the campus."
Passing of the apartment per-
mission policy would have little.
adverse effect on student. govern-
ment in the dormitories since only
about 15 per cent of the seniors
now hold offices, she said.
However, the permission would
create a "dilemma" for ADC next
