Andric Wins
In Literature
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (JP)-Ivo
Andric, a .Yugoslav autor who
wove the dark currents of modern
life into a powerful 'trilogy of
novels drawn from his country's
troubled past, was awarded the
1961 Nobel Prize for literature yes-
terday..
A prewar diplomat who was
rugoslavia's last minister to Hit-
ler's Germany, Andric now is a
member of Comnunist , Yugo-
slavia's parliament. He lives quietly
in a Belgrade apartment where
he wrote "The Bridge on the
Drina," "The Travnik Chronicle"
and "Miss" while Nazi soldiers
patrolled the streets outside dur-
ing the wartime occupation.
The 69-year-old writer is the
first Yugoslav citizen ever to win
a NolYll Prize.

Cn nonvention
To A rgue
Distritin
LANSING}- (rDemocratic ard
Republican proposals for revamp-
ing legislative districts showed up
at the constitutional convention
yesterday.
Senators andi members- of the
House of Representatives would
get voting strength equal to the
number of votes cast in their dis-
tricts under the plansubmitted
by six Detroit area Democras.
Legislative districts would be
reapportioned on the basis of
.population.
Weldon 0. Yeaker (R-Detroit)
called for a revision of House dis-
tricts to reflect populationmore
accurately, but proposed retention
of area representation in the Sen-
ate.
Legislative reapportionment, one
of the main issues of the conven-
tion, is certain to touch off sparks
between Republican and Demo-
cratic delegates.
It would limit population varia-
tions in House districts to 2,500
and those in Senate districts to
4,000.
Yeaker proposed to divide the
state into 27 legislative areas wilth
each to have at least one senator
and one representative. The rest
of the seats in both houses would"
be divided up according to popu-
lation.

i

Residence Hall Board of Governors
for final approval..
The motion was originally intro-
duced by IQC Secretary-Treasurer
Roger Pfeuffer,, '64, and amended
by South Quadrangle President
Edward Powers, '63, with a substi-
tute motion containing the same
provisions but with. more of the
reasons for IQC taking such
action.
Motion Cites'
The motion cited the abnormal-
1ity of segregation by sex in the
Universitycommunity as not con-
ducive to "desirable social adjust-
ment" and last year's policy
change allowing non - freshmen
women in men's apartments as
reasons for allowing the change.
It also leaves implementation of
the policy within the limits set
regarding hours to the individual
houses.
Dennis Moore, '63, who made the
motion to set up the committee,
noted that while he personally was
-in favor of the motion certain dif-
ficulties such as staff responsi-
bility, the limited space in ndi.-
vidual quad rooms, and the pos-
sible disruption of such visits to
those who wanted to study were
difficulties that should be con-
sidered before the plan is sub-
mitted to the administration.
Presidents
Cite Needs
The Michigan Council of State
College Presidents at their meeting
yesterday in East Lansing defined
four critical areas in the support
of higher education.
The nine presidents of the state-
supported colleges and universities
agreed that on each of their cam-
puses a major problem area is the
urgent and critical situation which
has developed in regard to faculty
salaries.
Theneed for relief from serious
overcrowding of faculty teaching
loads and the use of teaching fa-
cilities in order to accommodate
more students was the second ma-
jor problem area named as com-
mon to all nine institutions.
The presidents also noted the
neglect of plant maintenance. This
neglect, they said, promises to be-
come more severe as the institu-
tions' move towards year-around
operation.
The final area which they con-
sidered a major problem is the
ignoring of library needs. Inven-
tories are being kept at emergency
levels and vital services are held
down in such a way as to be a
matter of grave concern, the presi-
dents commented.
The president have agreed to
channel information on these
needs through the council in order
to provide an overall picture of
the critical needs of state-sup-
ported institutions of higher learn-
ing in Michigan. Attention was
also focused on operation budgets
and the group plans to discuss
capital outlay needs at their No-
vember meeting.

Lists Steps
To Reduce
U1.S. Deficit
Wants Balanced
Budget Next Year
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-President John
F. ,Kennedy announced yesterday
he has ordered a substantial cut
in spending so that the govern-
ment may reduce this year's $7
billion deficit and come up with a
balanced budget next year.
He has called for slowing down
anti-recession programs and post-
poning certain other projects not
* absolutely essential to national
defense.
Lists Steps
Ticking off steps he said his
administration already has taken
to save money, Kennedy added
that appropriationsaby Congress
"are a ceiling, not a mandate to
spend." And he laid down specific
guideposts to be followed to save
dollars:
1) Postpone or limit govern-
ment programs that normally
would be desirable.
2) Halt any speedup in spend-
ing which had been undertaken
, to combat the recession.
3) Hold down the number of
government workers "to the min-
.imum consistent with getting the
job done."
Caution and Deliberation
"I am especially desirous that
new programs or expansions of
existing programs be undertaken
with caution and deliberation,"
Kennedy said.
The President enunciated this
tight fiscal policy in a statement
he presented at a White House
meeting of the cabinet and heads
of 13 agencies. The text of the
statement was made public while
the session was in progress.
The statement did not make it
clear whether Kennedy meant to
cut down the payroll by laying
off federal workers. But Pierre
Salinger, White House press sec-
retary, said the administration's
policy has been to make reduc-
tions when it is determined that
fewer employes can handle the
work of an agency or department.
Yale Fraternity
Admits Negro
Over Protest
NEW HAVEN (') - The Yale
University chapter of Delta Psi
fraternity initiated a Negro mem-
ber last night over the' protests
of five University of Virginia
members who flew to New Haven.
A spokesman for the Virginia
group said the members came to
discuss the admission of Wendell
A. Mottley, a sophomore track star
from Trinidad.
Mottley was one of two Negroes
admitted to Yale fraternities this
fall, the first to join fraternities
at Yale in recent history.
This afternoon, before the joint
meeting of Yale and Virginia
members began, Richard C. Car-
roll, dean of undergraduate affairs
at Yale, warned that any frater-
nity with any trace of discrimina-
tion "would not be welcome on the
Yale campus."'

Plan $1.25,a
Tuition. Hi
. R-
Per Credit,
To Use Extra Money
To Admit Students
Turned Away in Fall
Wayne State University yester-
day approyed some of its share of
the proposed bargain with the
state Legislature for more money.
WStU's Board of Governors,
meeting in. Detroit, unanimously
agreed to boost tuition by $1.25
per credit hour for the spring
semester if the egislature in turn
restores a $2L VJ'00 budget cut it
made last spring.
The extra money would be used
to take in 700 students WSU
turned away in September because
of an inadequate budget.
'he WSU governors last week
outlined the bargain, ..which also
includes a long-term program fr
raising both student fees and the
Legislative appropriation.
Refuse Action
The University Regents last Fri-
day refused to take any action on
a ' 4tion boost at this time. In-
stead, they said they promised
"careful consideration" of a tui-
tion boost in the spring if the
state appropriation is raised.
.They, authgrIjzed University '
President Harlan Hatcher to "dis-
cuss with' the governor and mem-
bers of the Legislature all pos-
sible means (including student fee
increases) of financing the Uni-
versity's needs."
House Ways and Means Com-
mittee Chairman Rep. Arnelf Eng- :
Strom (R-Traverse-City) has said
that "We feel it would be unfair
to the University and Michigan
State University to require them
to raise their tuitions to get more.
money just because WSU is willing
to._
"it would be not quite fair to
allow WSU to take advantage of
the rest of the state's instiutions."
Details of the WSU plan will be
discussed with a Legislative com-
mittee in Lansing, Nov. 7.
In addition to the immediate
increases proposed, the WSU plan
would raise student fees over a
three-year period to net $1 fr'
each additional $4 appropriated
to WSU by the Legislature.
Board of Governors Chairman
Leonard Woodcock said yesterday
that WSU will offer a plan for de-
ferred payments of tuition.
Pay Off Fees
Students would be able to pay
off fees in 'the form of loans, due
one year after graduation from
any WSU program.
Woodcock claimed the plan will
enable students to attend WSU
who might otherwise have finan-
cial problems with the increased
fees.
If accepted as proposed, the
WSU plan would mean that, in
the future, students would pay
one-fifth of the added costs of
education. This corresponds gen-
erally to the University's tuition-
to-general operating budget ra-
tio which has fluctuated just over
20 per cent.

Jusice Department Mov.es
Against LouisianaRegistrar
SHREVEPORT (A')-The Department of Justice filed a civil rights
suit in Federal District Court yesterday alleging that Negroes in Mad-
ison Parish are being discriminated against because they are not being
allowed to register to vote.'
The suit named as defendants Mrs. Katherine Ward, parish reg-
istrar of voters, and the State of Louisiana. The suit, filed under pro-
visions of the civil rights acts of 1957 and 1960, asked that the court

few hundred yards from tie bor-
der.
Eyewitnesses saw a dozen Soviet
tanks with Russian crews line up
behind the EastGerman State
Opera House on Unter Den"Lin-
den.
It was a blunt areply to the
United States Army's dramatic
armed thrusts this week demon-
strating the Allied right to cir-
culate in East Berlin without in-
terference from the East German
Communists.
Americans Force
Three times American military
police squads with fixed bayonets
have forced the border into East
Berlin. They cleared the way for
United States occupation civilians

who refused to submit to East
German. controls.
The actions were carried out un-
der the guns of heavy American
Patton tanks lined up'on the West-
ern side of the border.
The East German police stepped
aside in each case and allowed
the MP's to escort civilians past
the border without resistance. Not
a shot was fired.
First Seen
The Soviet tanks were the first
seen in the heart of East Berlin
since Red tanks helped crush the
1953 anti-Communist revolt.
The West German defense min-
istry said the Red army has 10
armored divisions in East Ger-
many, but they have been kept
well away from the capital in: re-
cent years.-

SGC Debates
Responsibility
Of 'U' Students
By JUDITH OPPENHEIM
In committee of the whole dis-
cussion Wednesday night, Student
Government Council considered
three questions prepared by the
Council's delegates to the Office
of Student Affairs Study Com-
mittee.
Several faculty and administra-
tion members on the committee
attended the SGC meeting to hear
the, discussion. Committee Chair-
man Prof. John Reed of the law
school joined the Council at the
table.
Discussion of the questions will
be continued at next week's meet-
ing and Council members have
been invited to submit further
opinions to ther study committee
delegates.
The questions, drawn up by Un-
ion President Paul Carder, '62,
Brian Glick, '62, Women's League
President Bea Nemlaha, '62, and
Assembly Association President
Sally Jo Sawyer, '62, were:
1) When we speak of student
responsibility, what do we mean
-responsibility in what areas?
How broad and how deep should
this responsibility be? Where are
the limits to it and who decides
them?
2) Hn, mtehs ,.ancanaihmi, ea

from discriminatory practices the
government alleged were taking
place.
The suit claimed that 81.4 per
cent of white persons of voting
age ┬░were registered but that no
Negro has been registered as a
voter in the parish for the last
36 years. Latest available figures
indicated the parish had 5,181 Ne-
groes of voting age, compared with
3,334 white persons.
Under state law, registration ap-
plicant's must be identified to reg-
ister by two persons from their
precinct or else must produce sat-
isfactory identification.
The suit was announced in
Washngton by United States Atty.
Gen. Robert F. Kennedy.

For Access
WASHINGTON (P)-The United

Union today to put an immediate
end to interference with American
officials who visit East Berlin.
Ambassador Lleweflyn Thomp-
son received instructions to lodge.
an official protest in Moscow, State
Department spokesman Lincoln
White said.
White told a news conference
Thompson was instructed "to dis-
cuss the unilateral actions taken
by the Soviet side" in East Berlin
where East German Communist
police ,have requested United
States officials to identify them-
selves when crossing the line di-
viding the two parts of the city.
"You can describe it as a pro-
test," White said when asked what
the American diplomat will deliver
to the Russian foreign ministry.
Officials said Thompson will
make these arguments:
1) The United States insists its
officials-whether in uniform or
wearing 'civilian clothes - must
have unrestricted right to visit
East Berlin without being stopped
to identify themselves if they ride
automobiles bearing special license
plates.
2) Continued harassment of
Americans in Berlin will hardly
create an atmosphere favorable
for future talks on the over-all.
question of Berlin and Germany.
3) The Soviets should comply
with their responsibility in the
city by manning the Friedrich-
strasse crossing themselves, rather
than letting the East Germans do
it.

the assembly from the College of
Arts and Sciences. She ran second

ers winning seats.
The referendum vote on partici-
pation of Negroes in varsity ath-
letics was 5,132 in favor and 3,293
opposed.
Current Struggle
The issue of integrated athletics
is a part of a current struggle for
integration on campus. During the
fall registration period, a petition
with more than. 6,000 signature
asking for desegregation of varsity
athletics was presented to the
board of regents.
It was rejected, however, on the
grounds that only a minority of
the total 20,000 students at the
university had signed.
The regents also stated that they
"cannot at this time go ahead
with integration," Richard Van-
Steenkiste, Daily Texan editorial
director said.
