May Start Bylaw Inquiry





The Regents may soon get pro-
posals for revisions in their bylaw
governing the use of University
facilities for lectures.
Drafting possible revisions would
be one of the duties of a new Lec-
ture Committee that the Regents
will consider establishing at their
meeting Friday.
A request from Vice-President

for Student Affairs James A. Lewis
for authorization to establish the
new committee asks that the com-
mittee, in addition to being re-
sponsible for controlling the use
of faclities for lectures, draft a
report to him on desirable bylaw

HOUSING COMPLEX-The University has announced tentative
plans for new women's housing, to be opened in September, 1963.
'U'M TPakes tentative Plans
or eW Women sHousing
The University hopes to open a new type of housing for students
in September, 1963.
Presently designed to accommodate only women, a complex of
10 buildings including small co-operative type units, suite-kitchen-
ettes and apartments will be built on the lot at Oxford and Geddes
Rds. The project will hold about 420 students and is expected to
cost about $2.5 million dollars, Vice-President for Business and
1 Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont said

the proposed revisions before the
Regents for approval.
The form of the new committee
(five faculty and two student
members) would be the same as
that of the previous one, which
fell apart after the University
series of Platform Attractions, for
which the faculty members of the
committee were responsible, wasI
dropped last spring.
Prof. Samuel D. Estep of theE
Law School would be the chairman
of the new group, Lewis reported.
The Regents bylaw on lectures
which the group would consider
revisions in provides in part that:
1) recognized student organi-
zations may be granted permisson
to use Unversity facilities for lec-
tures or meetings, provided that
the group guarantees that there
will be no advocacy of the subver-
sion of the United States nor of
2) "No addresses shall be al-
lowed which urge the destruction
or modification of our form of
government by violence or other
unlawful methods or which advo-
cate or justify conduct which vio-
lates the fundamentals of our ac-
cepted code of morals.''

Voice's executive committee, cited
the Voice platform which calls for

The two restrictions on the use
of University facilities for lectures
which the Voice platform opposes
provide that no speakers may be
permitted who advocate:

government by violence or other
unlawful means,"

fundamentals of our accepted code
of morals."

West Denies
Red Charges
About Planes
MOSCOW {')-The United
States, Britain and France yester-
day rejected Soviet charges that
the flight of two West German
fighter planes to West Berlin Sept.
14 Was a warlike act.
In similar notes replying to Mos-
cow's protests of Sept. 17, the
Western Big Three advised the
Soviets to avoid getting excited
over such incidents.
They said the two F84 jets had
clearly lost their way, run out of
fuel and had to land. The planes
touched down at Tegel Airport in
Berlin's French sector.

The Study Committee on the
Office of Student Affairs and
some members of the Student3
Government Council will meet this
afternoon in an attempt to reach
a decision on the number and sta-
tus of students to participate on
the committee.
Prof. John Reed of the Law
School, study committee chair-
man, said the committee will wait
until after the meeting to decide
whether to accept SGC's request
to seat four of its members plus
an ex-officio member.
Reed said after the committee's
meeting yesterday he believed the
consensus was that it should be
kept as small as possible since a
large group would become un-
"But if there is a valid reason
for increasing the number, the
committee .would not be unfriend-

Reed said the committee had

quest that its delegates be per-
mitted to report back to the
Council in open session on the
committee's progress.
"We want to wait until the stu-
dent members join the committee

the decision," he said.

State Colleges Approve
IA ccounting Procedures
The State Council of College Presidents yesterday took a big
step toward uniform financial reporting by the nine state-supported
institutions of higher learning.
The presidents approved, in concept, a set of accounting pro-
cedures that can be used by all nine colleges and universities in
their reports to the state Legislature, a spokesman explained. At
present, financial reporting practices vary among the nine, and it
is impossible to make direct com- ,

separate peace treaty with East
Germany regardless of Western
But he said'"there is a way out"
of avoiding war: "to sign in 1961
a German peace treaty and to
normalize the situation in West
Berlin ... by turning it into a de-
militarized free city and prompt-
ly to call a peace conference for
this purpose."
Guarantee Status
He said the Soviet Union is
ready to agree to use of troop con-
tingents of neutral states or UN
troops to guarantee status of West
Berlin as a free city.
Referring directly to a possible
UN role, he said that war or peace
is involved in the German ques-
"No state, no responsible gov-
ernment, no responsible states-
man can view such a question im-
passively," he declared. "There can
be no neutral states in this ques-
tion. Neither can or shouldthe
UN, as a whole, be a neutral, in-
different onlooker."
Gromyko stressed theBerlin
crisis in a speech lasting more
than an hour in which he also
rejected President John F. Ken-
nedy's proposal for a treaty to end
tests of nuclear weapons.
Gromyko's speech constituted in
great part a reply to Kennedy's
speech delivered to the Assembly
Main Points
Gromyko made these addition-
al main points:
1. The Soviet .Union cannot ac-
cept a treaty toend nuclear tests,
but that this should be merged in-
to the over-all consideration of a
treaty on general and complete
2. The United Nations should
create a UN commission to super-
vise an end to colonialism and to
achieve immediate independence
of peoples not yet having that
3. The Soviet Union still insists
upon a three-ma "troika'" UN
secretariat to replace the single
post held by late Secretary-Gen-
eral Dag Hammarskjold, but is
willing to consider some kind of
"provisional solution" to the im-
mediate problem created by Ham-
marskjold's death in a plane crash
last week.
4. The Soviet Union demands
admission of Communist China
and expulsion of Nationalist China
from the UN, and rejects any pro-
posal fora commission that would
study the issue and thus delay an
immediate decision.
German Crisis
But main interest centered on
Gromyko's declarations regarding
the German crisis.
Kennedy warned Monday that
the United States had both the
will and the weapons to 'defend
the freedom of West Berlin.
"The leaders of certain Western
powers," Gromyko said, "often
come out with statements to the
effect that those powers will not
stop short at a test of strength in
reply to the conclusion of a Ger-
man peace treaty, or in other
words, they will reply by war to
the peace which the Soviet gov-
ernment is proposing."
He said that there is a great
difference between statements
abQut readiness to use force and
the actual use of force, if account
is taken of what such conse-
quences would imply.
He stressed that the Soviet

Smashes, 60th Home Run

NEW YORK (A)-Roger Maris blasted his 60th home run of the
season last night but it came four games too late to tie officially Babe
Ruth's 34-year-old record for 154 games.
Maris connected with a 2-2 pitch by Baltimore right-hander Jack!
Fisher and sent it into the upper right field standsin the third inning.
It came in the Yanks' 159th game of the season, including one tie.
Commissioner Ford Frick had set 154 team decisions as the limit
for Maris to tie or surpass Ruth's 1927 record. He does become only
the second player in major league history to reach the magic 60-mark.
Frick has ruled that Maris' record will go down in the record books
as a standard for a 162-game schedule.
His homer also helped the Yanks beat the Orioles, 3-2, with Ro-
land Sheldon winning in relief of Bud Daley.
Maris fouled off the first two pitches to fall behind Fisher, 0 and
2. Then he took two balls and fouled one into the dirt before connect-
ing. The ball appeared to strike a concrete step and rebound back onto
