Special To The Daily
LANSING--A virtual floor fight
erulpted yesterday at the consti-
tutional convention as the Repub-
licans rammed through a March
31 deadline date for adjournment.
The resolution, offered by Rich-
ard Van Dusen (R-Birmingham),
was hotly contested by various
Adelaide Hart (D-Detroit) call-
ed upon the delegates to put to-
gether a carefully considered doc-
ument and she said that such a
thing could not be accomplished
under the .pressure of a deadline.
But Van Dusen countered that
the deadline allowed ample time
for deliberation and cited consti-
tutional conventions in New York
and Missouri as having complet-
ed their duties in "less time than
Miss Hart said her experience as
a schoolteacher had taught her
that "cram courses often came to
naught." She said the delegates
needed time to think and it
couldn't be done at night after
working a heavy day.
As passed, the resolution calls
for all public hearings by sub-
stantive committees to be com-
pleted by Dec. 21, and that all
such hearings on delegate pro-
posals be completed by Jan. 5.
All substantive committee re-
ports must be submitted to the
convention by Jan. 31, and the
committee of the whole must make
its reports by Feb. 27.

to automatic suspension of rushing
'privileges" if they failed to submit
either the statements or a peti-
tion for exemption as provided in
the motion.
Offending' Houses
The motion was amended to read
that an offending house "may be
subject to disassociation by SGC;
as outlined in University Regula-
tions on Disciplinary Conduct:
Recognition and Activities.
(The regulation states, "Upon
notification of a possible violation,
SGC shall consult with all parties
concerned to obtain information
pertinent to the situation. When
such information has been secured
and indicates further action, an
open hearing shall be held with the
officers of the organization pres-
(The Council shall determine the
existence of, extent of, and appro-
priate penalty for the violation,
publicly stating the reasons.)
Extenuating Circumstances
"Exemption to the requirement
outlined above will be granted
only in the case of extenuating
circumstances, and only if a peti-
tion for exemption is submitted
by a fraternity or sorority to the
President of SGC, and only at
the descretion of the Council."
Petitions for exemption would
have to be filed before 5:00 p.m.
Jan. 8, 1962 to be considered.
Under an amendment from
Steve Stockmeyer, '63, and Robert
Ross, '63, passed by the Council,
"Petitions should include sub-
stantive reasons and evidence for
possible exemption and all relevant
correspondence with national and
alumni groups, relevant portions
of constitutions and charters, and
convention minutes which are
concerned with the disclosure of
such information as required in
the aforementioned statements."
The motion provides that all
houses which have not yet filed
statements with the accompanying
interpretations will be notified by
mail by the Council President.
Passes Amendment
The Council passed an an'iend-
ment proposed by Inter-fraternity
President Robert Peterson regard-
ing the adequacy of statements.
"The question of the adequacy
of all statements shall be con-
sidered after a meeting is held
between the executive committee
of SGC, representatives and ad-
visors of IFC and Panhellenic As-
sociation and the entire Commit-
tee on Membership in Student

amendment submitted by Brian
"It should be pointed out that
notification from the Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs of re-
ceipt of statements has not con-
stituted and does not constitute
notice that statements have been
officially ruled complete. Only
SGC can officially rule that a
statement is complete."

Not Guaranteed
BERLIN (AP)-Communist East
Germany asserted yesterday that
neither it nor the Soviet Union
ever guaranteed free movement of
United States NATO troops along
the 110-mile Autobahn linking
West Berlin with West Germany.
The statement was made by
Deputy Foreign Minister Otto
Winzer on the eve of a march by
an entire United States battle
group to Berlin.
About 1,500 men of the 1st Bat-
tle Group, 19th Infantry, will re-
place the 1st Battle Group, 18th
Infantry. The latter was rushed to
Berlin on President John F. Ken-
nedy's orders after the Commu-
nists began imposing drastic con-
trols on border crossings Aug. 13.
Routine Change
The United States Army has
stated that the exchange of battle
groups is routine.
In an interview with a corres-
pondent of the official East Ger-
man News Agency ADN, Winzer
did not refer directly to the march
along the life-line highway due to
start early today.
In reply to a question, Winzer
confirmed he considers that there
is no international legal basis for
free movement of Western troops
from and to Berlin.
Troop Movement
The greater part of the inter-
view was devoted to arguing that
United States troops which have
been moving up and down the
Autobahn between West Germany
and Berlin on training missions
were NATO troops.
The official Soviet news agency
Tass has called these troop move-
ments "fraught with dangerous
Winzer asserted that the recent
reorganization of the United States
Berlin command into a brigade
put it under the United States 7th
Army, a NATO army. This, he
said, was an aggressive act.
Student Notes
East Lansing
Negro college student, central fig-
ure in the school integration tur-
moil at Little Rock a few years
ago, says he has been discrimin-
ated against in off campus hous-
ing at Michigan State University.
Green, a senior majoring in so-
cial science under a scholarship,
was the first Negro student to
graduate from the Little Rock
Central High School.
He is public relations director
of the campus chapter of the Na-
tional Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People.
Green said he was personally
refused three times at East Lans-
ing house units listed by MSU as
off-campus housing.
"If landlords don't want to rent
to broad-nosed people with dark
hair and dark skins, they should
be honest about it and put a sign
out," Green said.

He said he informed the meet-
ing that several questions would
have to be answered satisfactorily
before the University would go in-
to a plan similar to those at Flint
and Dearborn:
1) The local community college
people would have to be receptive
to cooperation in a joint venture
under which the local school would
continue the first two years and
the University would handle the
junior and senior years. This is
the arrangement at Flint and
2) The area must show a mini-
mum student body potential justi-
fying a need beyond junior college
3) Someone from the area would
have to put up the money for
buildings and equipment because
the University doesn't have such
resources and the condition of the
Michigan treasury does not indi-
cate Lansing would underwrite
such a venture.

Sawyer Explains PFlans
For Language Courses
Vice-President for Researeh and Dean of the Graduate School
Ralph A. Sawyer yesterday told of plans for correspondence courses,
teaching machines, and extension courses to alleviate the problem of
language courses for graduate students.
This semester the number of sections in the language reading
courses were reduced due to insufficient funds while the number of
students desiring the courses increased, Sawyer said.
At Joint Meeting
He told a joint meeting of the Rackham Executive Board and
the Graduate Student Council that the French and German depart-
ments would increase sections, butt

of quad residents who stormed
the hill.
One observer overlooking the
proceedings, said "it is ironic that
on this same night over in the
SAB, SGC is discussing the matter
of giving more authority to these
responsible students."
A- student in the East Quad said
that he was playing bridge "when
I heard some noise, took a look,
and decided to join the panty
raid." But other students in the
South Quad said that they had
anticipated the demonstration, and
many of the men in the quad had
been alerted ahead of time.
The cold brisk night didn't have
any effect on the students as they
raced through the streets.
A sharp wind didn't help many
of the men as the panties that
were tossed from the women's
windows caught on trees, terraces,
and overhanging ledges of the
dormitories. But these plights
didn't daunt the spirit of the raid-
ers. If the pair of pants on a
ledge couldn't be reached, an-
other women's dangling panty was
soOver 200 students from the three
men's quads made a complete
round of the women's dormatories.
Starting at the South Quad, the
panty raid started in the futile
search for the Christmas tree that
bedecks the roof of the Qutd.
A milling crowd gathered around

ward "The Hill."
But the Christmas tree
never retrieved.

Bond Issue
Proposes Earmarked
Tax To Raise Funds;
Discusses Schools
Special To The Daily
LANSING - Insisting on a
"down-to-earth program which
can be sold to the Legislature and
the people," Sen. Carleton Morris
(R-Kalamazoo) was optimistic
yesterday about the possibilities
for some $100 million in capital
outlay funds for the state's col-
leges and universities.
Michigan State University Pres-
ident John A. Hannah, speaking
in behalf of the State Council of
College Presidents, addressed Mor-
ris' subcommittee on capital ex-
pansion, recommending a bonding
program and an earmarked tax
be undertaken to meet building
Morris said his committee would
initiate two capital outlay bills in
the next session, which convenes
in January; one for providing for
a bonding program and one for a
"pay-as-you-go" plan.
Reach Agreement
Hannah told the subcommittee
that the SCCP had reached gens
eral agreement that a capital out-
lay program of approximately $175
million for five years was about
the minimum that could be en-
dorsed. (The University has re-
quested $140 million in capital ex-
pansion funds for that period.)
"We believe that a firm com-
mitment by the State of Michigan
to a program of that size to be
completed within a five-year per-
iod would allow for orderly and ef-
ficient planning to meet our most
pressing needs," Hannah added.
He said a state agency should
be created to provide for the fi-
nancing. It should have the power
to incur obligations in anticipation
of state tax revenue and could
be limited to having outstanding
obligations not exceeding $100 mil-
lion at any one time.
Over 20 Years
He asked that such bonding
should not mature in periods of
more than 20 years, that the i.eg-
islature should retain full author-
ity over individual projects, and
that it should provide for revenue
of not less than $15 million an-
nually, as long as any of the ob-
ligations were outstanding.
He also suggested that ths
revenue be obtained by a tax
levied and set aside for it.
Hannah said the main problem
faced by the universities was that
"legislative programs for capital
improvements have been inade-
quate by any measure since 1950."
'Little Consolation'
He added that it was "but little
consolation" that the Legislature
had granted small sums in "cases
of urgent need" for the planning
of structures but has been unable
to provide the building funds.
Hannah said the present build-
ings are serving the academic
needs of 100,700 students ade-
quately in most cases, inadequately
in many. But he added, "We are
talking about caring for an ad-
ditional 100,000 students eight or
ten years hence. It will certainly
require a very large investment
to care" for so many more.
The SCCP rejected the pay-
as-you-go program on several
grounds: First, it is "hit-or-miss"
due to "violent fluctuations" in
the economy;- second, the needs

pray-in last October were released

peal bonds.
The students, along with three
staff members of the Student Non-
Violent Coordinating Committee,
are awaiting trial on charges of
disturbing the peace and contrib-
uting to the delinquency of minors.
The trial date will probably be set
for, early January, SNCC staff
member James Forman reported.
The students were arrested on
the steps of the McComb city hall
at the end of a march in protest
to the expulsion of some Burgland
Negro High School students after
they participated in local sit-in

Tha yer Notes AppropriationsProbleni

Appropriations are like cutting up a pie and giving a slice of it
to higher education, Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) noted
at the Student Government Council meeting last night.
The majority of state legislators are "not crusading for higher
education budget increases" Thayer pointed out. Many are impressed
with the need of such institutions as mental hospitals more than that
of higher education.
However, marches on Lansing are not a means of getting appro-
priations, Thayer said, but "good criticism" in the press would be an
effctive wa vto enrpess oninion.

"We had too many people who
wanted to take German 111, the
reading course," Prof. Clarence
Pott, chairman of the German de-
partment, said later. "The course
has a large amount of exercise
material which the instructors
must correct.
"There were 15 students who
could not be placed in sections.
But they were allowed to go to
the class as 'visitors' and get the
same instruction. These 15 did
their exercises on the teaching
machines in the language labora-

mester they will take the same

Speaking at the Women's Mass
Rush meeting yesterday, Panhel-

of many interlocking facets sym-

"A woman student comes to the
University for two things-to find
herself as an individual and then
loose herself in causes, interests
