MOSCOW (P)-Red Chinese Premier Chou En-Lai yesterday
plediged his country's support for Soviet foreign policy and its Com-
munist party program, but chided Premier Nikita S. khrushchev for
his attacks on Albania.
He warned delegates to the 22nd Soviet Communist Party Con-
gress-whiclfAlbania is boycotting-that open disputes between Com-
munist parties only aid enemies of the Eastern bloc. '
All disputes among Communist parties should be settled by nego-
tiation, he declared, according to informed sources.
Western newsmen were barred from the Congress yesterday for
the first time since it opened Tuesday, but Chou's speech was re-

Cites School
As Example
Of Progress
Curtis Hayes, Student Non-Vio-
lent Coordinating Committee ex-
ponent, spoke last night at a Voice
Political Party sponsored discus-
sion of individuals interested in
fighting discrimnation.
Hayes, who will be tried Tues-
day for his participation in the
Burgland Negro High School walk-
out in McComb, Miss., told the
group that the Southern Negro
is waking up- to the problem of
discrimination and is taking ac-
tion. The SNCC voter-regstration
school is an example.
"White citizens don't think Ne-
groes are intelligent enough to as-
sociate with superior society,"
Hayes said, "But today Negroes
are no longer willing to accept
this idea."
Most of the opposition comes
from adult, poor whites. "The op-
pressors are doing everything to
break down our courage," he said,
since they have no other grounds
for attack. "Everything we're do-
ing is legal," Hayes asserted. The
South needs to know that there
are Northerners behind them, he
Discussing the aftermath of the
Oct. 4 high school walkout in Mc-
Comb, Hayes said that the school
has stipulated that before the
student-demonstrators can re-en-
ter the school, they must sign a
statement not to walk out again
on penalty of a one year suspen-
The Parent Teachers Associa-
tion, upon the insistence of the
parents and the students, are
working to have this requirement
removed. They have threatened to
integrate the white high school, if
the students are not allowed to
re-enter Burgland without the ,
stipulation, he said.
In the discussion preceding
Hayes' talk-individuals, repre-
senting Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity, the Ann Arbor community,
and the University-talked of the
problems of freedom and dis-
crimination. SNCC leader Don
Gadson, associate minister of the
East Lake Baptist Church, mod-
erated the group and represented
the Detroit area.
Major problem areas cited by
the group were housing discrim-
ination on and off the college
campuses, discrimination in em-
ployment, advertising and the
problem of organization to allev-
iate the trouble-spots.
Announce Plan
For Merger
Two national fraternities -
Phi Epsilon Pi and Kappa Nu -
merged at the national level last
_ week, local Phi Ep president Rich-
ard Young, '63, said yesterday.
"It was thought that Kappa Nu
alone was unable to help its un-
dergraduate chapters, as it could
if it were merged with a larger
national," Young added.
Kappa Nu has 16 chapters.
Three of them, at the University
of Pittsburgh, Renselaer :Poly-
technic Institute and Brooklyn
College were released from the
national when they chose not to
participate in the merger.

The new combined organization
will be called Phi Epsilon Pi.
Kappa Nu was on the Univer-
sity campus until 1953. In 1959,
the group petitioned Interfrater-
nity Council for readmission, but
the petition was denied.
According to the Cornell Daily
:inn +ha mercer was pnecipitated

ported by the official Soviet news
agency Tass.
Receives Ovation
Chou was cheered and received a
standing ovation after his speech
in which he listed Albania as one
of the fraternal Communist par-
"The 'defense of the unity and
cohesion of the international Com-
munist movement is the interna-
tional duty of all Communists,"
he declared.
Apparently knowing what to ex-
pect from Khrushchev, the Alban-
ian party boss, Enver Hoxha, boy-
cotted the big Moscow Commu-
nist gathering.' The Albanians and
Yugoslavs alone stayed away from
a glittering affair that has drawn
Communist representatives from
80 countries.
In his opening address Tuesday,
Khrushchev accused {oxha of
adopting the repressive tactics of
Stalin, and practically appealed
for the Albanian Communists to

have to give up their "mistaken
view" if they wanted Soviet
'At Odds'
Yugoslav's independent Commu-
nists have been at odds with Mos-
cow since 1948 when they were
read out of the old cominform,
but the Albanian rift with Mos-
cow only became apparent in the
last year, when they supported
Red China against Khrushchev's
views on peaceful coexistence and
the inevitability of war.
Ne roes Stage,
Texas Dorm
Lobby Sit-In
AUSTIN ()-About 50 Negro
students at the University of
Texas staged a sit-down demon-
stration last night in the lobby
of a girls dormitory.
According to the Daily Texan,
women residents of Kinsolving
Dormitory have been told that
Negro girls visiting white girls in
dormitories should do so only in
the girls' rooms with the doors
closed, and may not use restrooms
in the white dormitories.

U.S. Won't
ABack Downl
WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy declared yester-
day the United States still firmly
opposes letting the Chinese Com-
munists into the United Nations
or any of its agencies.
His statement was read to news-
men at the White House by Press
Secretary Pierre Salinger when
Salinger was asked whether there
had been even the slightest change
in United States policy on this
Salinger said probably the best
way to answer was to read a
statement Kennedy had prepared
for his news conference last week
in case he was asked about the
situation. Nobody asked him then.
The statement said:
"The United States has always
considered the government of the
Republic of China the only right-
ful government representing China-
and has always given full support
to the position and to all the
rights of that government in the
United Nations.
Therefore the United States
firmly opposes the entry of the
Chinese Communists in 'to the
United Nations or into any of the
components of the United Na-
When the question came up yes-
terday. Salinger was told there
had been speculation at the United
Nations on whether exploration of
American relations with Outer
Mongolia meant a softening of
United States opposition to seat-
ing Red China in the assembly.

'Wade Talk
The dilemma posed byeutilizing
judical procedures while main-
taining policy making efficency in
regulatory agencies has been han-
dled differently in Britain than
in the United States, Prof. H. W.
R. Wade of Oxford University said
Both systems have their draw-
backs however, the Cooley lec-
turer said in the second of the
five speechs he will give at the
Law School. In this lecture he
dealt primarily with the problems
of the American system and plans
to cover those of the English to-
America has the system of in-
dependent regulatory agencies
controlling the work of private in-
dustyy while England has nation-
alized all areas of industry and
public service that needs regula-
tion and governs them directly
through a minister of parliment,
he said.
Organization Difference
This difference in organization
gives the English system a pre-
ponderance of administrative pro-
cedur'e. The judical ideals of hear-
ing and fair trial must be "tacked
on" and must "fight for its exist-
ence in a rigid departmental sys-
tem designed for executive pur-
poses only." This unbalance of
function renders the decisions of
British regulatory agencies less
inclined to justice, he said.
The American system, however,
independent of the governinent
and politics, utilizes the full ju-
dical procedure in its investiga-
tions. However, the mere weight
of the red tape in the more
lengthy judical procedure has
bogged down American agencies to
the point that they cannot keep
up with the amount of cases put
before them.
American System
The American system is so pres-
sured by judical procedures that
Americans "have neglected policy
making," which is the chief func-
tion of the regulatory agency,
Prof. Wade said quoting the 1960
Landis Report.
Assuring the listeners that there
were comparable problems with
the English system, Prof. Wade
then suggested that compromise
was the best solution to this prob-
lem of justice versus effective
power in both countries. '

For State Appropriations


Full Sum Not Expected

University officials don't real-
ly anticipate'getting all of the
$46 million state appropriation
the Regents are expected to ask
for in the budget request today.
But they would like the Leg-
islature to give the University
at least some part of the $10
million increase from this year's
Two of the things preventing
any major changes in state pol-
icy this year are the constitu-
tional convention, which many
legislators look'to for solutions
of their problems, and the elec-
tions next fall, which will serve
to keep legislators from passing
new revenue measures, Vice-
President and Dean of Faculties
Marvin, L. Niehuss says.
WSU Proposal
And Wednesday a new factor
was thrown into appropriations
calculations when Wayne State
University governing board
members offered to trade fee
raises for state appropriation
The effect that this offer
might have on other colleges'
requests that don't include sim-
ilar plans is not yet completely
determined, but House Ways
and Means Committee Chair-
man Arnell Engstrom (R-
Traverse City) indicates that it
will not hurt the University's
chances for more money.
Following the Wednesday



meeting of legislators and WSU
board members, Engstrom said
yesterday that "We feel it
would be unfair to the Univer-
sity and rMichigan State Uni-
versity to require them to raise
their tuitions to get more
money just because WSU is
willing to.
'Not QuiteFair'
"It would not be quite fair to
allow WSU to take advantage
of the rest of the state's insti-
Engstrom also expressed dis-
approval of WSU's proposing
the plan without informing or
consulting with the other eight'
colleges supported by the state.
However, he and other legis-
lators like the general tenor of
cooperative bargaining that is
involved in the plan.
Engstrom stressed, however,
that the Legislature realized
that the universities needed
more money this year, inde-
pendent of their fee schedule,
and said that he thought that
they would receive somewhat
increased budgets from the
Proof of Support
Additions to the state appro-
priation to the University would
serve as proof to the faculty,
now somewhat discontented
with general conditions, that
the state will continue to sup-
port the University in its
growth, officials say.

At least some of the many
needs listed in the budget re-
quest expected to be. passed
today must be met in the ap-
propriation this year, they em-
phasize, in order that the Uni-
versity may not lose too many
of its highly-qualified faculty to
competing institutions.
The faculty are more discon-
tented this fall than they have
been for many years, Niehuss
reports,, and the University
must show them that it is not
losing the ,race for quality to
other institutions if it is to keep
Younger Faculty Hit
The. situation particularly af-
fects younger' faculty; whose
leaving would affect the Uni-
versity's quality for many years,
rather than only for the present
or even near future, he says,
since they have not experienced
similar troughs in the Univer-
sity's situation before.
The request, though, if it is
at the expected level, will be
less of a request to the Legisla-
ture than a list of the Univer-
sity's.needs: University officials
admit that the state does not
have the money to support bud-
gets of the needed size at pres-
"But they have had the prob-
lem for several years now," Nie-
huss says, "and we wish they
would do a little something
about it.".

To tal Figure
$46 1Million
Bid Would Exceed
This Year's Proposal
By About $2 Million
The Regents are expected to
ask for more than $46 million in
operating funds for next year at
their meeting this afternoon.
't'heir request, to be forwarded
to the State Legislature and the
governor's budget bureau for ac-
tion, will be about $2.5 million
above this year's $43.9 million
request, officials predict.
Of the $10 million increase to
be asked from this year's actual
appropriation, the University
wants about $4.5 million to pro-
vide faculty salary raises aver-
aging about 10 per cent.
More This Year
This would be somewhat more
than the $3.5 million asked last
fall, which would have provided
for raises averaging about, eight
per cent.'
The Regents are also expected
to discuss Wayne State Univer-
sity's recent offer to the Legis-
lature to raise fees in return for
a boosted appropriation, either at
their business meeting or during
the closed committee-of-the-whole
sessions which precede it.
University officials have, been
debating for some time the ad-
visability of tuition increases and
their possible.~use in influencing
the Legislature, ta give the Uni-
versity higher appropriations.
Want More Faculty
The second largest single in-
crease requested in the budget for
the 1962-62' fiscal year will be to
provide for additional faculty po-
sitions. This would be some $2
million, about $400,00 larger than
last fall's request for the same
Other items expected to be in-
cluded on the Regents' list of
urgent needs are:
1) An increase of about $1 mil-
lion for plant maintenance. This
would allow maintenance to be put
back a't the level from which it
has been cut in order to provide
funds for other areas.
Other Services
2) About a $1 million boost for
University services such as the
library system, the admissions of-
fice and the registration and rec-
ords office.
3) Approximately $1.5 million for
the-Institute of Science and Tech-
nology. The Legislature usually
incorporates this item into the
general University appropriation.
4) Roughly $1 million for sev-
eral other research and ser4vice
organizations whose appropria-
tions are usually incorporated into
the regular appropriation also.

Prof. J. David Singer of the

of a moderately changed United

Prof.'Singer said that the major
powers can agree on general prin-
ciple to apply to emergency situa-
tions but cannot reach further
agreement. The secretary-general
then has to fill in the details as
best he can.
The Soviets have come to think

that the independent and often
political decisions made by the
secretary-general were merely an
extension of Western foreign pol-
icy. This is the job of NATO, and
not one of the functions of the
UN; Prof. Claude said. ,
By diplomatic maneuvering, the
United States has managed to
remove items from the veto-
blocked Security Council to the

The Soviet Union, of course,
objected to this and has proposed

New Stand
Picturing 'the student as a re-
sponsible participant in his own'
education and expressing concern
over the "paternalistic attitude of
the administration," Voic'e Politi-
cal Party adopted its platform for
the fall 1961 SGC election cam-'
paign last night.
In a statement on student rights
and academic freedom, the party
advocated the uniting of the office
of the dean of men and the office
of the dean of women under an'
office of dean of students.

Prof. John C. Kohl of the en-
gineering college recently asked
the Interstate Commerce Commis-
sion to take no action which would
impair the ability of the Michi-
gan Central Railroad (which is
leased by the New York Central
System) to continue to provide
needed rail service to Ann Arbor.
Along with Ann Arbor Mayor
Cecil O. Creal, he called upon the
ICC to intervene in the merger
between the Chesapeake and Ohio
and the Baltimore and Ohio Rail-
roads in the interests of the New
York Central.
"Of extreme importance to the
success of the University is the
accessibility it enjoys. A loss of
direct rail passenger service to
Ann Arbor would constitute an
impairment of that accessibility
and an ultimate handicap. to the
Creal pointed out that the city
needed a strong through railroad
to serve industry and students,
and to aid in the "whole concept

them to protect a strong rail serv-
ice for Ann Arbor.
Prof. Kohl noted that the B &

essarily affect Ann Arbor service,
but it could." He said that if the
