HATCHER SPEECH:
'U' Would Sacrifice
Quantity for Quality
By MICHAEL OLINICK
Forced to make a choice because of limited state financial sup-
port, the University would pick quality over quantity education.
This is what University President Harlan Hatcher told high school
principals and counselors yesterday as he outlined the decade ahead
for his educational institution.
Both quality and quantity are needed, he said, and both can be

In Katanga
LEOPOLDVILLE () - Gen.
Joseph Mobutu declared yesterday
his troops had advanced more
than 35 miles on a general. of-
fensive into secessionist Katanga1
to joyous welcomes from the popu-
lace.
Katanga's Foreign Minister dis-
missed the claim lightly, saying
all central government troops had
been repulsed.
Foreign Minister Evariste Kim-
ba told newsmen in Elisabethville,
Katanga's capital, Mobutu's an-
nohncemen't of a 35-mile advance
was."pure invention" and declared
not a single Congolese flag was
flying in Katanga.

On UAW Contract
DETROIT (/P)--Chrysler Co'p.
and, the United Auto Workers
Union agreed on a new three-year
contract yesterday shortly before
the midnight strike deadline. (See
earlier story on page 3.)

Next Ten Years
The next ten years pose "really
tough" problems for the Universi-
ty, its top officer told participants
in the Principal Freshmen-Coun-
selor Conference.
Among the most immediate' is
the influence of three years' aus-
terity operation. "Working with a"
budget far short of our actual
needs has had serious and danr.
gerous effects on thefaculty and
program."
There are "fierce' demands for
the University's teachers who are
growing "restless and impatient"
looking for some sign that things
will improve.
Graduate Training
Hatcher predicted that the Uni-
versity would continue its heavy
emphasis on graduate and pro-
fessional studies with hope that
new areas of knowledge will be
explored.
Although the campus is sensi-.
tive to the "exciting adventures
of research," Hatcher told the
luncheon audience that the Uni-
versity is pledged to continue its
"dynamic and able" undergradu-
ate program.
"We hope to maintain the Uni-
versity as a powerful and creative
center for teaching and research
and to ensure the richness of en-
vironment which is now unsur-
passed on any campus I know."

Faculty Asks
September
Cutoff Date
Hannah Indicates
Support for Policy
Michigan State University yes-
terday took the next-to-the-las
step in fixing a September, 1962
deadline for the removal of al
~dicriminatory clauses from fra
ternity and sorority charters.
The Faculty Committee on Stu
dent Affairs recommended th
deadline to MSU President John
A. Hannah who indicated las
night that he would "stand be
hind" the policy. An official ap
proval by Hannah is necessary to
establish the recommendation a
university policy.
Dean of Students John Fuzak
chairman of the committee, sai
he believed only a few fraternity
chapters still had discriminatoy
clauses. The Interfraternity Coun-
cil at MSU pointed to Alpha Tau
Omega and Sigma Nu as the only
two.
Student Council
Initiation of the deadline re-
quest came from Student Congress
last spring with the backing of
IFC and Panhellenic Association
The faculty recommendation en-
dorsing the Council's request would
give Hannah the option of grant-
ing one extension to an affiliate
group which still has a bias clause
by next September if it is demon-
strating that "direct progress is
being made," Fuzak said.
Fraternities receiving "local au-
tonomy" from the national dis-
criminatory clauses would retain
their university recognition under
the new policy.
Past Request
Hannah said that the discrimi-
natory clauses fell within the
proper authority of MSU's stu-
dent government. "We have been
urging the courtdll to take action
in this area for a long time and
are pledged to stand behind them
on any reasonable action."
James Arberry, Sigma Nu presi-
dent at MSU, challenged the right
of the university "to take away
personal rights." He claimed that
selection of members is a private
matter not in the public domain
as civil rights are.
Arberry said his chapter is not
working for the removal of its
bias clause and, although many
members have personal associa-
tions and frendships with Negroes,
"They don't belong in our frater-
nity."
Visiting Rule
To Exclude
Freshmen
The Inter-Quadrangle Council
refused last night to include fresh-
men in their reslution on women
in the quadrangle as Frederick
and Huber Houses overwhelming-
ly approved the original propos-
als by referendums.
Introduced by East Quad's Rob-
ert Levine, '64, the IQC motion to
amend last week's resolution said,
"it is unfair and unfeasible to
require the quadrangle staff to
check every woman that enters
to make sure she is not a fresh-

man."
Frederick House voted 46-3 to
allow women in the rooms between
noon and one-half hour before
women's closing with therdoors of
the rooms closed.
"The reason the house voted to
have the doors closed is to keep
down the noise," Milan Stitt, '63,
acting house president said.
Their proposal also charged the
residents with responsible conduct
of their guests and said, "neither
the resident advisor, the assistant
resident advisor, nor any members
of the staff need be present dur-
ing these visits."
Huber House voted 136-10 to
accept women in the rooms and
129-20 to limit the hours for the
afternoons and evenings, but not
meal hours.

Committee
eTakes Action
To Halt Tests
D
s U.S. Russia Oppose
UN Moratorium Plan
UNITED NATIONS (P) - The
V United Nations main politica]
committee approved last night over
United States and Soviet opposi-
tion a new call for a voluntary
halt on testing of nuclear weap-
ons.
By a vote of 72-21 with eight
abstentions, the 103-nation com-
mittee approved a resolution sub-
mitted by India and five other
nonaligned nations urging a mor-
atorium pending a test ban trea-
ty.
The United States and the So-
viet Union voted against the pro-
posal.
Assures Approval
The margin assured ratification
by the General Assembly, where
a two-thirds majority is required.
Both big powers made clear to
the United Nations in advance
they will not consider themselves
bound by any voluntary morator-
ium. But India pleaded with the
committee to make another ap-
peal to the major p'owers to re-
frain from further tests in the
hope of bringing an end to the
nuclear arms race.
Semyon K. Tsarapkin, the So-
viet delegate, called a voluntary
moratorium unfeasible. He charg-
ed "warlike maniacs" in the West
are seeking to plunge the world
into a nuclear holocaust.
Soviet Stand
In strong words Tsarapkin laid
down the only way in which the
Soviet Union would consider a
ban on tests-by making it part
of an over-all disarmament agree-
ment.
The United States and its
Western Allies also oppose a vol-
untary moratorium, saying the So-
viet action in resuming tests a
month ago shows the uselessness
of such a proposal. Thus far the
United States has only resumed
testing underground.
Tsarapkin declared the volun-
tary approach is "fundamentally
erroneous and unfeasible." He
said the threat of war could be
removed only 'by "one deed-
agreement on general and com-
plete disarmament."
Influence Nations
He charged that some of the
non-aligned nations were being
influenced by the "dirty work of
Western propagandists" seeking to
prevent the Soviet Union from
perfecting its defenses.
He said the sponsors of the
voluntary moratorium were doubt-
less upset by the amount of ra-
dioactive fallout from the Soviet
tests, but that they should show
more concern over "the terrible
danger of rocket and nuclear war
that now looms over us in all its
terror."
Herasserted that the Western
powers with their actions in Ber-
lin were engaged in a mad race
toward a war that could wipe out
"perhaps hundred of millions of
human beings."

Kennedy Commands
Preparation To Guard
Free World Security
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Two more
Russian nuclear tests, bringing to
30 the number announced by the
United States Atomic Energy
Commission, were 'exploded early
yesterday in the atnIosphere.
Earlier yesterday, President John
F Kennedy announced that the
United States is getting ready for
possible atmospheric testing of
nuclear bombs.
The order to start the tests,
the President said, dependsNon
whether it is decided they are
necessary for free world secur-
ity in the light of what the Rus-
sians have been doing.
Both of the Russian bombs were
of moderate force. The AEC class-
ed them in the low to intermedi-
ate range, which could, mean any-
thing from 20,000 to 500,000 tons
of TNT equivalent.
The AEC announcement said
the blasts were set off in the Nov-
aya Zemlya test area of the Arc-
tic. It gave no further details.
Contradicts Statement
Soviet Premier Nikita Khrush-
et chev had announced that a 50-
megaton blast, which was set off
Monday, probably would end the
se series of tests Russia started Sept.
d- 1, but four others have been set
on off since then.
Careful studies are being made
ey of what Kennedy described as the
ly Soviets' irresponsible -and con-
s, temptuous explosion of a large
he number of,nuclear weapons in the
ed atmosphere.
If it is found the Russian e
periments pose a threat to what
the President again described as
this" country's leadership in total
military strength, he said, the
United States tests will be start-
ed.

HYDE PARK--Students gathered yesterday on the Diag to hear
SGC candidates and other speakers give their views on campus'
issues and the coming election.
Candidates, Speakers Treat
Current Issues at Hyde Park
By BARBARA PASH and ELLEN SILVERMAN
At Hyde Park yesterday afternoon, Student Government Council
candidates and other speakers presented their views on current
.issues to the campus. j
Stanley Lubin, '63E, ,an SGC candidate, stressed the underlying,
undue interference of the University administration in student
affairs.
"Joint Judiciary Council-a puppet system-affords the student
no rights to defense or a witness," he said.
Off-Campus Issues
He also commented on his belief that there really is no such
thing as an off-campus issue; what happens in Mississippi affects
everyone.
Richard Magidoff, '63, expressed the view that the Council has
the power to represent and indicate campus student opinion.
"SGC is democratically elected and each candidate has presented
his views and principles."
Active Role
"In this transition period there is Ian awareness that students
should play an active role in University areas which concern them,"
Kenneth McEldowney, '62, said.
He cited the areas of residence hall regulations, curriculum
formulation and policy concerning outside lectures as those in
which student participation is needed.
Positive Action

By SANDRA JOHNSON
Vice-President for the Dearborn
Center William E. Stirton is work-
ing with a committee representing
nine universities to prepare a con-
tract for establishment of a tech-
nical institute in Kanpur, India.
The contract should be ready to
submit to the Regents at their De-
cember or January meeting, Stir-
ton said yesterday.
The United States is far behind
Russia, West Germany and Great
Britain, who have already built
technical schools in India, he said.
Assign Sites
Stirton pointed out that all four
countries agreed at the same time
to build the schools. Russia went
immediately to work building a
SGC Motion,
To Consider
Expression
Student Government Council
will vote at its next meeting on a
motion limiting SGC expression of
student opinion to "those areas
which directly affect the interests
of the student body during its
tenure at the University."
The motion, proposed by David
Croysdale, '63, washdiscussed in
committee of the whole on Wed-
nesday night.
A .paragraph deleted from the
motion read, "discussion of and
expression of opinion on other
topics, particularly those regarding
national or international issues
should be encouraged within the
various student organizations rec-
ognized by SGC for that purpose.
(Examples include the Young
Democratic Club, the Young Re-
publican Club, the Political Issues
Club, Voice political party, Chal-
lenge and the Young Americans
for Freedom.)
Croysdale said the purpose of his
motion was to bring out the prob-
lems which arise when the -Coun-
cil discusses "off-campus" issues,'
such as the violence in McComb,
Miss. and the House Committee on
Un-American Activities.
He said the Council seldom has
enough information to act intelli-
gently on these issues and that
