To Restgn
From UN
LISBON (P -Premier Antonio
De Oliveira Salazar, smarting frm
lack of concrete support against
India's conquest of Goa, said yes-
terday Portugal plans to quit the
United Nations-but set no date.
"I do not know whether we shall
be the first country to abandon the
United Nations, but surely we will
be among the first," the gray-
haired dictator, 72, told the Na-
tional Assembly in a broadcast
address read for him by the As-
sembly's President.
Refuse Collaboration
"Meanwhile we shall refuse them
our collaboration in everything
that is not in our direct interest,"
he added.
He criticized the United States
and Britain-Portugal's major al-
lies-and the United Nations for
their failure to give Portugal more
than oral backing in the enclave
war of Dec. 18-19..
"When small nations are de-
feated it is sad and afflicting,"
Salazar said, "but the inability Of
the great to defend the right is
incomparably graver."
Back Resolution
British and American delegates
backed a Security Council resolu-
tion calling on India to withdraw,
but a Soviet veto killed the resolu-
Salazar said both Britain and
the United States sought to dis-
suade India's Prime Minister Ne-
ru from attacking and "we can-
not doubt the force of these re-
quests." He said diplomats of
Spain, West Germany, Belgium,
The Netherlands, Argentina and
Brazil also vainly took a hand.
Court Orders

States district judge yesterday or-
dered a halt to segregation of all

cipal airport, Dannelly Field.
Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr.'s
order prohibits the city, Board of
Commissioners and the airport
restaurant operator from:
Refusing to make available to
members of the Negro race equal-
ly with members of other races
all facilities generally open to the
Preventing Negroes, by force or
persuasion, from using any airport

Ferris To Ask
For Increase
In New Bud oet
Ferris Institute will ask the Leg-
islature for a $1,000,000 budget
increase to provide expanded fa-
cilities and services.
The increase would allow"a 27,
per cent' increase in instructional'
load and a restoration of curtail-
ments necessitated by budget def-
icits this year.
Victor F. Spathelf, president of
the college, said Ferris could in-
crease its total enrollment by 600
students during the standard
three-quarter academic year. It
could also operate for a fourth
quarter, if granted the money.
Even with the record budget,
the school would still be turningl
away students.

cilities and supervision of such

Pierpont said that the appoint-
ment "is being made.necessary by
the increasing extent and size of
the University and the need to al-
ter and rehabilitate facilities."
Argus Vice-President and Gen-
eral Manager L. L. Davenport said
that the' Tirm will "miss the ex-
tensive knowledge of operations
and broad administrative experi-
ence possessed by Brinkerhoff. His
many years of experience should

Brinkerhoff has been with Ar-
gus since 1951, prior to which he
was with the Square D Co. of
Washington, D.C. He received his
b chelor of arts degree from the
Uiversity of Toledo in 1947, and
a masters degree in business ad-
ministration from the' University
in 1948.

American consumers' expecta-
tions in regard to the business
economy have not changed sig-
nificantly from August to Novem-
ber 1961 although the economic
outlook remains favorable, a sur-
vey of consumer attitudes reports.
The survey, released this morn-
ing, was conducted by George Ka-
tona, director, and Eva L. Muel-
ler of the Survey Research Cen-
ter Economic Behavior Program.
This report is the Center's fourth
quarterly survey of this type cov-
ering consumer attitudesyand in-
clinations to buy.
The study noted that Americans
are concerned about the interna-
tional situation. While only a
small proportion think that a
world war may break out in the
near future, uneasiness and anxi-
ety about world problems has
grown greatly.
Items Related
"The two major news items,.in"-
ternational conflict and business
upturn, are related in the minds
of many people. Many consumers
believe that because of the Rus-
sian threat, the government has
stepped up defense outlays, and
that the increased defense ex-
penditures have contributed to the
business recovery," the economists
Thirty-four per cent of the
families with an income of above
$7,500 felt that the cold war
brought good times, while only 27
per cent of all the families sur-

veyed thought that this was true.
Thirty per cent of all of the fam-
'ilies felt, in fact, that the situa-
tion brought bad times.
. Those who felt that the cold
war brings good times mentioned
increased government spending
and increased employment. Those
who disagreed felt that the cold
war brought times in which one
could not confidently plan ahead.
Better Business
More families with incomes of
above $7,500 reported better busi-
ness conditions compared to those
of a year ago than all of the fam-

Power Head
Of Committee
Regent Eugene B. Power was
elected temporary chairman of the
committee to draft a constitution
and bylaws for the new Michigan
Coordinating Council for Public
Higher Education.
At the same meeting, held
Tuesday, Merritt M. Chambers,
executive director of .the Michi-
gan Council of State College
Presidents, was elected secretary.
The committee, composed of
President Eugene Elliott of East-
ern Michigan University; Univer-
sity -' Vice-President Marvin L.

Michigan State University; James
McCormick, secretary of Wayne
State University board of gover-
nors; and Christopher Magnuson
of the State Board of Education,

meeting at Kellogg Center in East
According to Power, the propos-
ed Coordinating Council and the
Council of State College Presidents
will perform separate functions.
Concerning the recent meeting at
which he was elected chairman of
the by-laws committee, he said,
"We found that we were in uni-
versal agreement on the princi-
1.3es of the Coordinating Council."
Violence Hits
Santo Domingo
ence erupted yesterday in various
parts of the Dominican Republic,
leaving a toll of four dead and

Ilies. The survey noted that at-
titudes and expectations of the
upper income consumers improv-
ed during the last six months to
a larger extent than those of
middle or low-income families.
Favorable business news was re-
called more frequently than un-
favorable news. This figure has
increased over reports of last year
at the same times, yet is 3 per
cent lower than was reported in
The index of consumer atti-
tudes and inclinations to buy is
today lower than in 1955-56, the
base figure for computations. The
report partly explains the differ-
ence by the fact that longer range
business expectations are less fav-
orable than ; they were in the
Recession Affects
"Since the 1958 recession a sub-
stantial group of people believe
that good times alternate with
periods of recession and unem-
ployment. The absence of exuber-
ance in consumer sentiment de-
rives in part from uncertainty
about longer run trends," the re-
port says.
Sixteen per cent of the families
reported that they "probably
will, buy" an automobile within
the next 12 months. This is a gain
of 2.2 per cent over the reported
figure of May-June 1961. Another
4.7 per cent said that they were
either undecided or may buy a
car in the same period.
A detailed study of automobile
demand indicates, the report says,
that this is one of the strong as-
pects of the present situation. In-
clinations to purchase one-family
houses have, however, been ad-
versely affected by international

Majority Refuses
To Back Rationale
Of 'Bill of Rights'
Daily Editor John Rogerts, '62,
and Brian Glick, '62, withdrew the

thority over Student Rules and
Conduct after Student Govern-
ment Council defeated the student

Brian Glick, '62, withdrew his
proposed student "Bill of Rights"
from consideration after Student'
Government Council defeated por-
tions of it and the rationale for
the Glick-Roberts motion on

call vote at its meeting last night.
Voting against the motion were.
Tom Brown, '63BAd., Richard
G'Sell, '64E; John Vos '63; Robert
Peterson, '62; Paul Carder, '62;

Robert Ross, '63; John Roberts,
'62; Brian Glick, '62, and Sharon
Jeffrey, '63. The two other mem-
bers of the Council were absent.
Much Debate
The vote came after extensive
debate on the motion, which in
part stated, "SGC believes that
students,should have this respon-
sibility for genuine self govern-
ment, not only as a matter of
principle, but because it would
benefit students, the University
as an educational community, and
the society at large."
"SGC recognizes that in a large
community like the University
rules to protect property and
personal rightsmay be necessary.
But SGC believes that such rules
ought to be set and enforced only
by bodies which are responsible to
the governed."
Vos explained student self-
government has to be based )n- a
trend of increased responsibility
to the students and not granted
all of a sudden. Thus he viewed
the motion as "premature."
Earlier the Council passed the
first portion of the motion dis-
approving the Residence Board of
Governors decision on women vis-
iting in the quadrangles.

Kennedy, Eckert Bow Out at December Meeting


A $10,000 scholarship in his name and a buss on the cheek from
grateful Joyce L. Harlan, '63, marked the end of 16 years of service for
former Regent Charles S. Kennedy, as he and former Regent Otto E.
Eckert retired from the Board at the December meeting.
Regents Paul G. Goebel of Grand Rapids and Allen R. Sorenson of
Midland took office at the beginning of this year.
Miss Harlan, daughter of Michigan State University Trustee C.
Allan Harlan, told the Regents that Kennedy had saved her life in
1941 by performing a relatively new operation. Harlan expressed the
hope that the scholarship fund would further "co-operative efforts by
our three great universities to encourage research."
Discuss Joining
In other business, the Regents considered the question of joining
the Michigan Co-Ordinating Council for Higher Education, an associa-
tion proposed by the Michigan Council of State College Presidents and
the Association of Governing Boards for the voluntary co-operation
between the state's nine tax-supported colleges.
Regent Eugene B. Power presented the proposal, saying that
