'es Small Surplus
Revenues Climb













Requests Increased Expenditures
For Defense, Space, Foreign Aid
WASHINGTON (W)-President John F. Kennedy, in the first fed-
eral budget of his own making, called today for record peacetime
spending of $92.5 billion and a wobbly surplus of $463 million - a
margin possible only if revenues rocket and the price of mailing a letter
is increased.
The 1,500-page spending blueprint, which covers the 1963 fiscal
year starting July 1, foresees a spending rise of nearly $3.5 billion over
the current level, More than 75 per cent of the increase would involve
military and space programs. Kennedy told Congress he expects outlays

twice before, during World War II.

Highlighting the 7,400 - word
budget message which Kennedy
sent to Capitol Hill were these
1) A defense program of $52.7
billion, up nearly $1.5 billion.
2) Allocation of $2.4 billion for
space research, an increase of $1.3
3) A foreign aid program
boosted by $200 million to $3.9
4) Repeal of the 10 per cent tax
on rail, bus and boat fares, with
later adjustments in aviation
5) Enactment of a new farm
bill designed to cut farm program
spending from $6.3 billion to $5.8
6) Increase the "temporary"
$298 billion national debt limit to
a new high of $308 billion.
7) Increase postal rates by
about $600 million a year.
Crisis To Cool
The new budget assumes that
the Berlin crisis will cool off
enough to permit the return home
by June 30 of military Reservists
mobilized last fall. Any heighten-
ing of cold-war tensions could
prompt new hikes in defense
spending, and wipe out the indi-
cated surplus.
Kennedy also based his projec-
tions on an assumption that the
economy will continue to expand
briskly into 1963, though perhaps
at a lesser rate as time passes. The
President said major economic ree-
ords will be broken month after
month while the unemployment
rate will drop from 6.1 per cent
sto 4 per cent by mid-1963.
The fate of the postal rate re-
quest, which has been shelved
three years running, also will have
a major impact on the budget.
Without higher rates (including
a 5-cent letter charge) to add to
the anticipated big increase in
tax collections, Kennedy's envi-
sioned surplus would evaporate-
barring major economy moves in
other areas.
D Many congressional Republicans
- and some Democrats were
ready to demand greater economy
and a bigger surplus in, order to
whittle down the record national
debt, now nudging the $298 billion
Anticipating this, Kennedy said
a $463 million surplus would reflect
"the best national policy." He said
deficit spending might promote
inflation while- a larger surplus
o "would risk choking off economic
- recovery and contributing to a
premature downturn."

'The tradition behind these
three is that they have grown
great because they were free to
do the obvious thing at the time
it should be done," Bonisteel
says. For this reason, the boards
may remain -elective and thus
subject to less state control.
Multiplicity of Boards
But the appointment of the
boards seems to be preferred,
on the whole, Bonisteel says,
because it avoids a multiplicity
of names on the ballot and can
ensure a greater geographical
distribution of the members,
preventing "provincialism."
Bonisteel also makes a third

Board of Education.
Not Final
But these solutions are by no
gesting compromises to the se-
means final. Three plans, sug-
lection of board members and
coordination, are in dispute
within the subcommittee.
The much reviled "super-
board" plan has been modified
into a voluntary commission, to
be appointed by the governor,
which would unify future plan-
ning and prepare budgets for
presentation to the state Legis-
lature. "This commission's jur-
isdiction would be carefully de-
fined and restricted to those
two duties.
It would have no control over
administration or present poli-

cies of existing state universi-
ties," Bonisteel reports. This
plan will leave intact the ma-
jority of present boards. and
members will most likely be ap-
Romney Plan
George Romney (R-Bloom-
field Hills), potential guber-
natorial candidate and chair-
man of the elementary and sec-
ondary sub-committee is push-
ing a plan that would give the
governor the right to appoint
all educational governing bodies.
This would take the schools
out of the direct hands of the
people and make educational
policy just another issue in a
gubernatorial campaign. In ad-
dition to this, Romney wants a
state appointed coordinating
board. He has not delineated
the powers of this board.
According to education com-
mittee chairman, Alvin Bentley
(R-Owosso), Romney has some
tentative support for his plan.
Romney's plan is opposed by
higher education sub-committee
members Bonisteel and MSU
President John Hannah, both
outspoken advocates of a third
plan for continued total au-
tonomy for higher education.
As there are no set party lines
on education dilemmas, the out-
come of an education proposal
is a politician's guess.
The battle lines have been
drawn around these three pro-
posals and their variations.

Legislature that "it is up to you" to find a $10.4 million in-

Quoting Edward Everett Hale, the governor said the legis-

ers' retirement allowances to $1,-

In his message, which called for
some $70 million more for all state
education needs, the governor told
the lawmakers "an. inventory of
Michigan's educational needs of
the 1960's makes it obvious there
are vast areas in our total educa-
tion scene that can merit nothing

"It is your business, now, to ef-

"To do otherwise is to repudi-

Swainson took the Legislature
to task for trimming his request
of almost $110,000 for higher edu-
cation last year. The lawmakers
cut off $417,000, and from the bal-
ance the University received $35.4
"I intend once more to present
suitable recommendations toward
meeting these needs. Accomplish-
ment of Michigan's educational
goals requires your acceptance of
this responsibility," the governor

FPA Views'
Rush, AKL
In a two hour session last night
the Fraternity Presidents Assembly
voted to give Alpha Kappa
Lambda permanent status on
campus .and decided to hold off-
action on its controversial new
rush plan until February.
Richard Young, '63BAd., of the
Interfraternity Council Executive
Committee introduced the pro-
posed rush changes on to the floor
of FIA. IFC President Robert
Peterson, '62, then departed from
normal procedures to speak for
the plan. He recalled the history
of the Rush Study Committee,
which drew up the plan and at-
tempted to explain the rationale
behind each of the proposed
Urges Discussion
Peterson asked that FPA wait
until its next meeting before vot-
ing on the plan. "Discuss this
among yourselves and with your
chapters. Give the plan at least as
much consideration as the Study
Commitee gave it," he said.
The individual presidents show-
ed a wide range of opinion on the
plan. Very few were for it without
reservation. Presidents of small
houses were worried about the ef-
fects on informal rush of the
new plan.
Small Houses
Peterson said later that "much
of the concern from small houses
surprised me since these are the
houses the plan is supposed to
help." Nevertheless, he was pleas-
ed with the overall attitude of
FPA and felt that after minor
problems were corrected the plan
would have a good chance for
passage in February.
Alpha Kappa Lambda has been
under colony status for five years.
It has asked IFC for permanent
recognition several times in this
period but has failed to fulfill all
the requirements for recognition
until now. Student Government
Council must now approve the ac-

Pollock Criticizes Convention Deadline

Constitutional convention dele-

strong criticism last night at the
"artificially imposed deadline" on
the convention resulting from an
opinion of state attorney general

The attorney general "split legal

and as a result the convention
faces a distressing deadline, Prof.
Pollock told the city officials from
five counties attending the meet-
"No one could work under more
