Last Stand
Constitutional Status
Of Board Discussed
Special To The Da*
LANSING - Questions of ap
pointment procedure and constitu
tional status for a community col
lege advisory board are holding up
constitutional convention approva
of the higher education proposa.
With the entire provision passe
in the first reading yesterday aft-
ernoon, last ditch efforts are be
ing made to revive issues vote
down in committee of the whole
The education committee's de-
cision to make appointment pro-
cedure dependent on the execu-
tive branch committee decision t
insure constitutional uniformity
failed to forestall premature de-
bate on the subject.
Democratic Riders
Detroit Democrats Adelaide
Hart and Tom Downs have pre-
sented three amendments of fer-
ing alternatives to appointment
confirmation procedure in an at-
tempt to force an early or "test"
decision from the convention.
The "advice and consent of the
Senate," "advice -and consent of
the House of Representatives" or
"without the objection of the Sen-
ate" are the three Hart and Downs
alternatives. Jack Faxon (D-De-
troit) has offered the fourth alter-
native of the "advice and consent
of the state board of education."
Education Committee Chairman
Alvin M. Bntley (R-Owosso) re-
ported at the end of the session
that he "didn't care what proce-
dure was approved as long as the
proposal was accepted." A previous
amendment to supply a specific
j procedure was strongly voted down
Minority Report
A minority report recommending
the deletion of a provision for a
community college advisory board
was brought up as an amendment
in the second reading after it had
been defeated 47-69 as an amend-
ment to the first reading in com-
mittee of the whole.
The convention will consider the
second reading amendments today
and will vote upon the entire pro-
posal. The proposal will go to the
style^ and drafting committee and
then return to the floor to be voted
into the draft of the .constitution.
Earlier yesterday, amid tempor-
ary adjournments to watch the
telecast of John Glenn's orbit shot,
the convention made a different
type of history by providing com-
munity colleges with their first
constitutional dignity, and open-
ing governing board meetings to
the public.
Fourth and Final
The convention passed the
fourth and final section of the
higher education proposal which
provides for legislative establish-
ment and support of community
and junior colleges. It further pro-
vides that these institutions will
be supervised and controlled by
locally elected boards.
Section D also provided, in spite
of a minority, report asking its re-
moval, a special board to advise
the state board of education on
supervision, planning and budget
unification of the community col-
An amendment to open all for-
mal governing board meetings to
the public by constitutional direc-
tion passed without controversy.
This action will reverse present

tradition and will force education-
al institutions to make public all
financial and policy decisions,
which must be reviewed in formal
governing board meetings..
Amendment Allows
The amendment was proposed
by Harold Morris (D-Detroit) to
allow more leeway to governing
boards in their' procedure. Testi-
mony by former University Regent
Roscoe R. Bonisteel (R-Ann Ar-
bor) commending the present sys-
tem of. designating the president
to preside aided in the defeat of
the amendment for the University,

World News Roundup

approved a temporary $2 billion
increase in the national debt limit
yesterday. The 251-144 vote sent
the legislation to the Senate
where Chairman Harry F. Byrd
(D-Va) 'said his finance commit-
tee would take it up Feb. 28. He
predicted quick Senate passage.
The increase, if finally approved,
would be effective until June 30
when the administration has an-
nounced it will seek an additional
$8 billion hike. ~

WASHINGTON-President John
F. Kennedy asked Congress yes-
terday to vote a pay increase for
the government's 1.6 million white
collar workers. With a view to
putting them on a par with non-
federal salaries, Kennedy propos-
ed increases ranging from 3.7 per
cent to about 33 per cent over a
three-year period starting next
Jan. 1. The new scales would add
about 10 per cent or $1 billion to
the government's annual payroll
of $10 billion for white collar
workers around the world. Con-
tending that low government
wages endanger national security
by failing to hold competent work-
ers, Kennedy said he was propos-
ing a wholly new "common sense"
approach to the problem. He said
he was proposing "federal pay re-

HAMBURG-Frogmen groping
in the receding waters of a dis-
astrous weekend flood recovered
dozens of additional bodies yester-
day. The known death toll reach-
ed 277. Hamburg authorities reg-
istered 253 dead. The other victims
perished in adjoining region of
the North German coast. Officials
feared the final list may exceed
400. Throughout most of the area,
life returned to ear normal. In
the states of Schleswig-Holstein
and Lower Saxony, thousands of
refugees returned to their homes.
Gas, electricity and drinking wa-
ter were again generally available.
Hamburg, hardest-hit, was slow-
er to recover.

NEW YORK-Aerospace issues
were inspired by the American
success in manned orbital flight
and the Stock Market managed
to carve out a gain yesterday.
Trading was moderate. Standard

50 Utilities up 3.0 and'; the 500

LONDON ()-Britain announc-
ed yesterday the adoption of a
policy of complete air mobility for
its armed forces.
Through teaming of air and sea
transports, the aim is to make
British units capable of reaching
any world trouble spot in a few
The policy is based on a theory
-not wholly in line with Ameri-
can thinking-that highly mobile,
reserves concentrated in Britain
have a greater military potential
than men tied down in distant1
foreign garrisons. It will be de-
veloped over a five-year period.
New Doctrine
The new doctrine of mobility
rests on experience Britain gained
recently in switching troops at
high speed to two troubled areas,
the oil sheikdom of Kuwait aid
British Guiana. It is aimed to help
Britain maintain widespread mili-
tary commitments in the Middle
East and the Orient.
Defense Minister Harold Wat-
kinson presented Parliament a
white paper, an official govern-
ment document, on military plan-
ning for the next five years.
Fiscal Increase
Arms expenditure for the fiscalt
year beginning April 1 was budg-
eted at the equivalent of $4,818,-
800,000, an increase of $183,120,-
000 over the current year.
Although the white paper made
no mention of a cut in the British
army in West Germany, the plan-
ning trend indicates continental
commitments will be pared in the
future to improve a mobile stra-
tegic striking force.
Inadequate Funds
Britain now has about 55,000
men in West Germany-a figure
which hardly satisfies Washington

mander in Europe. Norstad wants

The white paper said:
"Greater mobility by air and
sea is the best way of fulfilling
over the next five years our re-
quirements .
"Outside Europe our forces will
essentially become joint service
task forces, using the air and the
sea to transport men and equip-
ment and to support operations
conducted ashore."

UN Gives UVp
Katanga Mine
To Company
United Nations yesterday handed
back control of the huge Lumum-

The Ethiopian soldiers who had
occupied the sprawling plant since
December were replaced by a small
body of Tunisians.
The plant was occupied by the
United Nations in fighting be-
tween UN and Katangan forces.
The United Nations charged that
white mercenaries used parts of
the plant as firing positions.
Union Miniere, the big Belgian
mining company whose revenues
are a major financial prop for
secessionist Katanga, has denied
it aided the Katangan fighters.
During the shutdown, the com-
pany lost about $1.4 million a
week. The plant produces 100,000
tons of copper a year, a third of
Katanga's output. A company

"As I look back, graduating from college in the depth of
the depression was a blessing in disguise. It was difficult
to get a job, and even more difficult to hold it. It proved
to me early in life that to succeed in business requires
constant struggle.
"I found that the truly successful individual never stops
learning, that a formal college education is the foundation
on which we continue to build the knowledge and experi-
ence required to get ahead.
