Seeks UN Boycott Against
South Africa's Racial Policy

OSLO UP) - Nobel Peace Prize
winner Albert John Luthuli called
last night for a United Nations-
sponsored boycott of his native
South Africa to force its white
supremacist government to pull
down the color bars.
The deposed Zulu chief also told
a news conference he had receiv-
ed a message of congratulations,
from President John F. Kennedy.
Luthuli is here to receive the 1960
Peace Prize awarded him for his
efforts to win equal rights for
nonwhites in South Africa.
The UN General Assembly Nov.
28 voted new denunciation of
South Africa's racial policies but
ruled out at that time possible
expulsion from the organization
or punitive boycotts. Luthuli said
the individual action of some na-
tions in boycotting South African
goods has been welcomed by Ne-
gro readers in South Africa.
"Personally I wish pressure
would be brought to pear on the
South African government. The
United Nations should carry on
this move by single states in or-
der to get South Africa to a point
where it is forced to listen to
world opinion," he said.
Luthuli said he saw little hope
that the present nationalist gov-
ernment would ever change its at-
"It is too far committed to the
Apartheid policy ever to change.
What we hope is that outside pres-
sure might make the electorate
take stock of the situation and act
accordingly," he said.
Luthuli, temporarily released
from confinement by the South
African government so he could
make the trip to Oslo, used every
opportunity at the press confer-
ence to lash out at the nationalist
government's racial policies.
Luthuli will receive his award

tiating session last night without
agreement on a formula to solve
the country's political crisis.
But they agreed to meet again
The National Civic Union, larg-
est of the opposition groups, had
warned failure to reach agree-
ment would cause it to withdraw
from the talks and "let events
take a natural course"-presum-
ably prolongation of the general
After the recess, Civic Union
officials declined to comment on
developments, but the group's ap-
parent willingness to put aside its
earlier now-or-never ultimatum
hinted at some progress.
Opposition sources said the bas-
is for the talks was a proposal for
a ruling seven-man junta to be
headed by President Joaquin Bal-
aguer, who would resign before
the end of the year. The govern-
ment rejected this Thursday night.
The opposition then charged
that the plan originally was pre-
sented by government representa-.
tives and approved by Balaguer,
but was subsequently vetoed at a
meeting of armed forces chief
Gen. Pedro Rodriguez Echavarria
and high cabinet and congression-
al leaders.

ed legislative ineptness as the
problem, stating that industry was
using the myth of "bad climate"
to block or retard social legisla-
tion. Waldron said that changing
the climate won't help, "we have
to change Michigan," he said.
The only unified note was legis-
lative support of University re-
search. specifically designating IST
as meritorius of support. Gins-
berg's first proposal stated:
"Greater development of facilities
at the University is essential to
Michigan's preparation for the fu-
ture demands of industry.
Provide Leaders
"Such resources can well provide
for the research leadership so
vital to industries engaged in the
development of atomic energy,
automation and electronics a'nd'
other techniques of modern pro-
duction." he said.
Unemployment and workmen's
compensation, property taxes and
assessment procedures were hit
by Hall and Hall and Gage dis-
cussed and advocated extending
to Michigan municipalities the
right to purchase real estate for
industrial development purposes.
Ask Coordination
Martin supported Gage's pro-
posal and advocated the establish-
ment of a Greater Michigan Au-
thority for coordination and an
industrial FHA program.
Waldron implied that any legis-
lation°would 'not aid Michigan
unless both parties agreed not to
change or alter its intent by using
administrative rulings backed by
the Supreme Court.
"If the nation knew that we
would stick to the principles of
limited government, then Michi-
gan would have a boom," he said.
Laws such as the unemployment
compensation were changed by
these procedures, he said.
Produce Workers
Ginsberg called for better co-
ordination of economic develop-
ment, studies into the future needs
of the state in the type of trained
personel and educational coordi-
nation to produce these trained
workers. He also hit the tax struc-
ture, asking that the new tax
structure be based on equity for

ness taxes from fixed costs to

Bowl Talks
CHICAGO (R) -- The Big Ten
voted 6-4 yesterday to renew talks
on a Rose Bowl contract with the
West Coast's Big Five.
In previous contract talks the
West Coast Conference approached
the Big Ten representatives, but
now the roles are reversed. In
negotiating for a new contract, the
Big Ten is fully aware that the
Big Five may prefer to "play the
field" in an attempt to -get the best
available team in the "nation in-
stead of being tied to a contract.
Michigan Votes in Favor
Ohio State, Wisconsin, Illinois
and Northwestern voted against
contract talks and Michigan, Mich-
gan State, Purdue, Indiana, Iowa
and Minnesota for it.
The Big Ten wants a contract
similar to the old one, running an
indefinite period with a two-year
notice for cancellation by either
It also insists that no Big Ten
school can make the trip twice in
succession whether it is champion
or not.
The West Coast champion auto-
matically becomes the host team.
Non-Repeater Rule
It is the non-repeater stand of
the Big Ten that may be a bone of
contention. It is thought that Wil-
bur Johns, UCLA athletic director,
is dead set against it, wanting only
the Big Ten's best-the cham-
pion-to make the trip. His influ-
ence is greatly respected through-
out the Big Five.
At present there is no contract

Call for Aid
To VietNam
States and other allied countries
are actively discussing additional
aid to South Viet Nam so it can
block a Communist drive which
poses a threat to world peace.
Secretary of State Dean Rusk
made this disclosure at a news
conference yesterday, immediate-
ly following release of a 155-page
State Department "White Paper"
on Viet Nam. This document spell-
ed out a "clear and present dan-
ger" of a Communist take-over by
North Viet Nam, supported by the
rest of the Communist world.
Threatens Peace
Rusk declared anew that North
Viet Nam's campaign of subver-
sion, terror and armed infiltra-
tion of South Viet Nam is a ser-
ious threat to world peace.
He said the State Department
White Paper makes clear that
South Viet Nam needs additional
help if it is not to be overrun by
the Reds.
Rusk did not name the other
nations now discussing aid for
South Viet Nam. But it is known
that consultations were heldat
the State Department Thursday
with other representatives of the
Southeast Asia Treaty Organiza-
SEATO Allies
Besides the United States, SEA-
TO includes Britain, France, Thai-
land, the Philippines, Pakistan,
Australia, and New Zealand.
The purpose of the special em-
phasis by Rusk and the issuance
of the formal White Paper was to
alert world opinion to the danger
in South Viet Nam and to justify
additional help, despite the 1954
Geneva agreement, which theoret-
ically ended the fighting in Viet
Foresees Results
The State Department White
Paper foresaw these consequences
of a Communist victory in all
Viet Nam:
"It would doubtless seal the fate
of Laos, where the Communists
already control about half the
"Cambodia's precarious neutral-
ity would be subjected to heavy
and steadily increasing pressures.
"The present balance of forces
between independent and Commu-
nist states in Asia would be tipped
perilously if Viet Nam, Cambodia
and Laos fell under Communist

Placing Wayne State Univer-
sity under the constitutional
jurisdictiondof the Regents is
not a new idea.
The proposal which will soon
be made by Jack Faxon (D-
Detroit) to the Constitutional
Convention hearkens back to
January, 1959, when WSU Pres-
ident Clarence B. Hilberry sug-
gested merger with the Univer-
Hilberry's proposal arose at
the time when WSU was near-
ing completion of a three-year
transition period from city uni-
versity to state institution. With
the state legislature meeting
that month, Hilberry thought
the time seemed appropriate to
enact legislation calling for an
appointive board to govern
WSU until July 1, when it would
officially become a state insti-
Stresses Autonomy
Hilberry stressed that both
universities would be autono-
mous and co-ordinated main-
taining complete organizational
structure. No branch arrange-
ment would prevail.
The plan met with some sup-
port because of the possibility
of reducing duplication of ef-
fort. Hilberry saw the co-ordi-


nation as providing an end to
needless competition.
University President Harlan
Hatcher agreed that greater
economy could possibly be
achieved, but said the initiative
must be left to Wayne.
Politics Enters
Politics entered the arena al-
most immediately. Hilberry was
accused-of seeking the alliance,
to insure favorable support by
the state legislature for Wayne
when it came under state con-
trol that July. While a six-man
governing board elected in
Wayne County might consist of
all Democrats subject to conflict
with the Republican controlled
legislature, WSU under the con-
trol of the University Board of
Regents presumably would be
free of this possibility.
When a bill proposing the ap-
pointment of a board for WSU
was proposed to the legislature,
politics entered again with the
Democrats defeating the bill.
Public election of a six-member
board took place as scheduled in

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-The Michigan hockey team outskated, outplayed and
outscored a crippled Toronto team 8-3 last night before the largest

From the very outset it was evident to the 6,675 fans who paid

Wolverines were a superior team. The Michgain team had the game
in complete control, scoring three times in the first period, twice in
