Ask Women Visitors
For Men in Quads
IQC To Hear Motion Tomorrow;
Each House To Set Its Own Policy
By DAVID MARCUS
Inter-Quadrangle Council will hear a motion tomorrow night that
would allow non-freshmen women to visit men's rooms in the. quad-
'rangles from noon until one-half hour before the women must return
to their dormitories.
At present, open-open houses in the men's residence halls must
be conducted in conjunction with some social event, such as a quad-
rangle dance or a football game.
The motion, to be proposed by IQC Secretary-Treasurer Roger
Pfeuffer, '64, would allow each house in the men's residence halls to

EUGENE B. POWER
.. try for support
Regent Asks
More Funds
By The Associated Press
SAULT STE. MARIE - Regent
Eugene B. Power continues his
four-day tour of the Upper Penin-
sula today in an effort to gain
support for the University's $45.8
million budget request.
The chairman of the ,Univer-
sity's governing board told an
alumni group here that additional
money is needed to meet back
deficiencies in maintenance and
salaries.
Rep. Clayton Morrison (R-
Chippewa), who attended the
meeting, told the University grad-
uates that a fiat rate state income
tax might be necessary to meet
-the increased needs of various
Michigan agencies.
Morrison,, a member_ of the
House Education Committee, said
that if all the state - supported
units submitted requests for in-
creases similar to that of the
University, the total budget would
be boosted by some $100 million.
He added, however, that he felt,
the University request "represents
a need, and not just a want."
If the Legislature grants the
full ┬░sum sought by the University
and student fees are "held con-
stant, the University's general
fund income total will be some
$55 million.
YD's Support
Voice Four
The Young Democrats Executive
Board last night adopted a resolu-
tion supporting the Voice Poli-
tical . Party candidates in the
upcoming Student Government
Council elections.
The four candidates are: in-
cumbent Kenneth McEldowney,
'62, Sharon Jeffrey, '63, Richard
Magidoff, '63, and Robert Ross,
'63.
The board action included the
cirdulation of a recommendation
to all the YD's recommending that
they back these candidates.

-set its own policy within these time
limits by a two-thirds vote of the
residents.
Dean Approves
John Hale, assistant dean of men
in charge of residence halls, com-
mented, "I think basically it's a
good idea."
He also noted, in regard to the
privacy of the men, "this is why I
think it will be left to a more
than a majority vote of the men
in each house.
"It then becomes an individual
matter that can be decided to the
satisfaction of everyone in the
house."
Moch Speaks
IQC President Thomas Moch,
'62E, commented, "Last year, the
University passed a regulation al-
lowing non-freshmen women in
men's apartments.
"It is our hope to present a
similar arrangement for men's
residence halls, following the
philosophy that the residence halls
are the men's homes and they are
entitled to the same privileges
there that they would have at
home."
Hale also noted that he felt the
new policy, if instituted would
"not significantly" add to the work
of the residence hall staff.
No Supervision'
Staff supervision would prob-
ably not be necessary, though spe-
cific regulations regarding women
visitors have not yet been consid-
ered, he said.
Presently, regulations regarding
open-open houses deal with such
things as staff supervision - and
requirements on having doors
open.,
Pfeuffer saw the motion as
"opening new opportunities" for
residents in the field of self-de-
termination of policies.,

Urge End
Of House
Rush Rule
By MALINDA BERRY
Panhellenic Association passed
a motion expressing disapproval
of individual sororities' setting
grade requirements for rushees
at their meeting last night.
Several sororities alreay on
campus have grade requirements
in addition to the University-
demanded 2.0 credit-hour.average.
The motion reads: "Panhellenic
Association disapproves of the set-
ting of grade recuirements above
those set by the University for
rushees and urges their elimina-
tion."
Catherine Steffek, '62, Chair-
ma of Rushing Chairmen, pro-
posed the motion, which she em-
phasized is a statement of Panhel
policy, not an act of legislation.
Houses' Rights
"Any house that wishes to re-
tain a higher stipulation, than the
2.0 set by the University is within
its rights to do so," Susan Stiller-
man, '62A&D, Panhel president,
said.
Panhel is not infringing on the
rights of any house, but is just
saying that any house that wishes
a higher grade requirement must
be responsible for carying out this
policy and the necessary proce-
dures alone, she said.
"In effect, we are making the
statement that grade restrictions
are in opposition to the philosophy
at this University," she said.
Majority Feeling
It was the majority feeling that
the removal of these restrictions
was a good move on the part of
the houses, because:
1) Grades do not necessarily
guarantee a raise in house scholar-
ship and it has been proven that
there is no positive correlation
between higher grade requirements
and the overall house average.
2) Rushees are required to go
to all houses for mixers, but they
are unable to "rush" all houses
therefore there is a contradictiont
between compulsary mixers and
the grade stipulation.
3) In stressing grades too mucht
emphasis is put on the end pro-t
duct, rather than the means: the
house should work on scholarship
within the house, not put the bur-
den on the pledges.
4) The League staff cannot as-r
sure that the extra checking re-
quired beyond a 2.0 can be done
before the end of rush.r
"Actually it is going to be im-
possible for a house to find out
what a girl's grade point is, short
of asking her at the door whent
she hands in her mixer card, be-I
cause the grades will not be pro-
cessed until almost the last fews
days of rush, and it would seemx
undesirable for a house to dropt
a girl at final desserts because oft
a grade requirement," Miss Still-r
erman said.-

PARTY CONGRESS:
Attack on Stalinists Continues

May .Request
New Corridor
Into,Berlin
BONN (M-The West German
government informed President
John F. Kennedy yesterday it
would consider dealing with the
Communist East German regime
to create new air corridors into
Berlin, authoritative sources here
reported.
They said West German Ambas-
sador Wilhelm Grewe told this to
the President during an hour-long
meeting in Washington, the
sources said. They described it as
the main point in the new instruc-
tions given Grewe when he was in
Bonn last week for consultations.
The corridor reportedly would
be created for civilian flights
from West Germany into West
Berlin and would give this coun-
try the direct air access to the
city that it now lacks.
It would supplement the three
Allied air corridors, which are
restricted to aircraft of the Unit-
ed States, Britain and France.
The sources emphasized, how-
ever, that the negotiations would
have to be kept on a sufficiently
low level so they would not imply
de facto recognition of East Ger-
many.

MOSCOW P) - Accusations
that old line Stalinists were mur-
derers and repressers echoed
through the Kremlin chambers of
the Soviet Party Congress yes-
terday.
So far the accused have not
spoken in what amounts to a one-
sided trial of the anti-party group.
The world outside the Com-
munist bloc was more concerned
about the explosion of a Soviet
nuclear superbomb, in the Arctic
Monday. The blast has not been
mentioned here publicly.
Past Struggle
But within the Party Congress
the intraparty struggles of the
past were told in detail.
More and more it began to look
as if the denunciations were a
prelude to an extensive purge of
the Stalinist followers still func-
tioning after losing out to sup-
porters of Nikita Khrushchev in
a. power battle fought in 1957.
Expulsion from the party ap-
peared imminent for former Pre-
mier Georgi Malenkov, ex-Premier
and former Foreign Minister V.
M. Molotov, former Deputy Pre-
mier Igor Kaganovich and a group
of other names that once loomed
big in the Communist heirarchy.
Accuses Stalin
Leonid Ilyichev, one of the lead-
ing editors of the party news-
papers under Stalin and now chief
of party propaganda, implied in
a lengthy speech that Stalin was
responsible for the death of Niko-
lai Vozniesensky, a Soviet econ-
omist.
Ilyichev said Stalin first praised
and awarded a prize to Vozniesen-
sky for an economic history of the
Second World War, then became
envious of the quick acclaim given
the book that the book disappeared
-and the author was killed under
highly suspect circumstances.

Bullein
BERLIN (P)-United States
authorities late last night lift-
ed a ban that had prevailed
briefly on private trips to Com-
munist-ruled East Berlin by
civilian members of the Ameri-
can Mission here.
State Department Press Of-
ficer Lincoln White told re-
porters in Washington that the
ban was the result of a mis-
understanding.
White also said that the
American commandant in Ber-
lin has been instructed to pro-
test the recent East German
proclamation that they will
stop all civilian personnel in
East Berlin for identification.

Then a presidium member,

SGC Campaign
Commences
At Open House
By JUDITH OPPENHEIM
Speaking before a Women's
Senate open-house yesterday, 12
of the 14 Student Government
Council candidates kicked off
their campaign with explanations
of their stands in the forthcoming
election.
Douglas Dahn, '62, said the
Council should consider so-called
"off-campus" issues when they are
meaningful to University students.
He advocated SGC consideration
of a student-owned bookstore, so
students could buy school sup-
plies more cheaply.
Effective Action
Joseph Feldman, '64 said SGC
ought to channel its efforts into
areas where it can take effec-
tive action. He agreed there should
be SGC concern over certain off-
campus issues but stressed prior
consideration of academic and res-
idence hall problems.
Richard G'Sell, '63, stressed the
importance of experience of po-
tential Council members with SGC
organization, procedure and policy
and the need for adequate re-
search and reading as background
for all discussions and votes the
Council engages in.
Evaluate Rules
Sharon Jeffrey, '63, favored a
re-evaluation of regulations con-
cerning women's hours and the
campus judiciary systems. She
stressed the need for study of
discrimination in campus housing,
scholarships and wages paid to
students.
Aline Limburg, '62, emphasized
the need for Council members be-
ing more informed on issues on
which they debate and vote. She
stressed the need for reporting
out of executive session all criteria
used in considering appointive
posts.
Stanley Lubin, '63, also cited the

the Central Control Commission,
which reviews -all accusations
against party members. He said
the files were full of false accu-
sations made by the three former
close associates of Stalin.
A number of those accused,
Shvernik said, were "rehabilitated"
-but some of these after death.
Shvernik accused Kaganovich
and Molotov of directing the kill-
ing of a host of opponents of the
Stalinist cult of personality.
B. N. Ponomarev, Central Com-
mittee member, accused Molotov
and Kaganovich of trying to pre-
vent the rewriting of history in
1957, an old and trusted process
in the Soviet Union.
Judic Fines
SAE $400
Joint Judiciary Council yester-
day announced penalties against
Sigma Alpha Epsilon social fra-
See statement, Page 5
ternity consisting of a fine of
$400 and social probation until
Dec. 1.
The penalties were imposed for
a "disorderly" party held at the
fraternity house Oct. 7.
The imposition of social pro-
bation will prevent the group from
holding any official events before
Dec. 1, or participating as a unit
in any campus activities.

Couneil Set
To Discuss
OSAQueries
Student Government Council
will consider three questions
about student responsibility raised
by the Study Committee on the
Office of Student Affairs at ids
meeting tonight.
Brought up by the four stu-
dent members of the OSA com-
mittee, the questions will con-'
sider:
1) What is meant by "student
responsibility?" How deep should
it be~what are its limits?
2) How much responsibility can
students assume - particularly
with outside and academic pres-
sures mounting?
3) How much responsibility do
students really want-as much or
more than they have already been
granted at the University?,
The views expressed at the
Council meeting will be carried
back to the OSA study committee,
Women's League President Bea
Nemlaha, '62, a committee mem-
ber, said last night.
JThe Council will also vote on
two motions it discussed in com-
mittee of the whole last week.
A motion by Assembly Associa-
tion President Sally Jo Sawyer,
'62, states that SOC expresses its
disapproval of the non-academic
evaluations used in the women's
residence halls.
A motion by Brian Glick, '62,
calls for two letters regarding the
situation in McComb, Miss. to be
written by the Council.

By CYNTHIA NEU
The Ford Foundation has
awarded the University a $3 mil-
lion grant for long term support
of non-Western and other inter-
national studies, officials an-
nounced yesterday.
The grant is the largest ever
given to a state university for a
single campus, Dean Roger Heyns
of the literary college said at a
press conference Tuesday.
The Centers for Chinese Stud-
ies, Japanese Studies and Near
and Middle Eastern Studies will
receive $1.58 million over a period
of ten years, approximately $60,-
000 yearly, for support of gradu-
ate training and research pro-
grams.
Other Programs
The remaining $1.42 million
will be used over a period of five
years to aid the Centers for
Southern Asian Studies, Russian
Studies, Research on Economic
Development, Research on Con-
flict Resolution, the Program in
Foreign and Comparative Law and
the Program in Business Studies.
The funds wil be used for a
wide number of purposes, includ-
ing hiring faculty, releasing fac-
ulty for research, obtaining visit-
ing scholars, aiding research, cre-
ating fellowships, improving li-
brary and financing publications
and conferences, Heyns said.
Supplement Funds
Unlike this one, most grants
are given for a specific project,
Prof. Samuel P. Hayes of the
economics department, director of
the Center for Research on Eco-
nomic Development explained.
"Because no project is, indicat-
ed, we can follow any aspect which
we find interesting during a
study, and often use the same da-
ta and personnel for a more ex-
tensive survey."
Highlights Fields
"The grant highlights the im-
portance of the humanities. and
social science in the world at a
time when we are so often look-
,ing at the physical sciences,"
Vice-President Marvin Niehuss
commented.
"It is significant that the Uni-
versity was selected. It is a testi-
monial to the quality of the fac-
ulty and the work they have done
and in a sense it is a return on
the investment in our faculty
which we ask taxpayers to make,"
he said.
Prof. Richard K. Beardsley, di-
rector of the Center for Japanese
Studies, the first area program
established at the University, out-
lined some of the areas which
would use funds from the grant.
Currently in progress are stud-
ies on "The Political Moderiniza-

WO RLD-FAMOUS ARTIST:

Picasso Turns 80 Today, Supports 'Love'

I

By The Associated Press
CANNES, France-Pablo Picas-
so, turning 80 today, says:
"Love is the only thing in life
that matters."
The years have mellowed the
Spanish-born artist. Far behind
are the days of near-starvation in
Paris studios where at the turn
of the century Picasso said his;
creed was "art is the child of

want--for me that is everything."
Picasso lives in a two-story Ed-
wardian-style villa with his ex-
model, Jacqueline Roque, 36,
whom he married last April. She
has transformed the house into a
model of Riviera elegance com-
plete with period furniture, chauf-
feur, cook, gardener and valet.
The artist's Bohemian spirit has
resisted the determined woman's'

The branch may become the goat
in Picasso's mind's eye and he
transfers his vision to the canvas.
He is a hearty eater, but doesn't
tarry over lunch. A quick bite and
he is back at his easel.
Sometimes he takes a break to
sit on the beach. Usually he
paints through the afternoon and
perhaps into the night. He has a
television set in his bedroom, but

The campus will receive an
early view of electioneering excite-
ment at The Daily's Student Gov-
ernment Council press conference
tomorrow night in the Michigan
Union Ballroom.
For the first time the public will
be on hand to watch the semes-
ter's "andidates being led through
a question and answer period by
Daily staffers.
In the past, the press confer-
ence has been held in the Student
Publications Bldg. and open only
'to* staff members. "We wanted to
give the community a chance to
see-at least in part--how we go
about evaluating candidates,"
John Roberts, Daily editor, said.
