Malinovsky Cites
Cuban Warning
Says Soviets Would Retaliate
Against 'Western' Aggression
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW - Soviet Defense Minister Rodion Y. Malinovsky
threatened the United States yesterday with nuclear devastation
should it attack Cuba.
"We would like to warn the aggressive circles of the United States
that an attack on the Cuban republic would mean a third world war,"
the 64-year-old marshal declared.
If an attack on Cuba is made, he continued, "the Soviet Union
will be in the first ranks of those who will come to its assistance."
Eliminate Evils
In Washington Sen. Richard B. Russell (D-Ga) said Secretary
of Defense Robert S. McNamara, Malinovsky's American counterpart,
"made it very clear that we are pursuing a policy that will result in
~the elimination of Castroism and
1 Communism from Cuba."
Russell made this statement
after the Senate Armed Services
Committee, of which he is chair-
man, met behind closed doors with
the defense chief.
hr$. xIn reply to questions, Russell
said McNamara ,outlined methods
for carrying out this country's
Cuba policy, but he declined to
adivulgedetails on the ground that
these are classified matters.
Capture Men
The Cuban navy said it captured
eight men trying to land on Cuba's
shores and accused them of at-
tacking and stealing two Cuban
fishing boats. The Havana an-
nouncement termed the men
counter-revolutionaries and claim-
ed they worked for the United
States Central Intelligence Agency.

Gets Backing
Of Education
Senate May Oppose
'Piggy-Back' Concept
The "piggy-back" plan for giv-
ing Michigan's thumb area a de-
gree-granting college was endors-
ed yesterday by the House Edu-
cation Committee and apparently
will receive bipartisan support in
the House.
In reporting out the bill, the
education committee attached
three strings to it:
1) It cut out the only state ap-
propriation involved, a $50,000
grant to finance the initial steps
toward the establishment of the
Add Amendment
2- It added an amendment re-
quiring that $1 million in local
funds be raised to pay for the
operation of the new school, and
3) It suggested that the bill be
referred to the House Ways and
Means Committee before the House
takes final action on it.
Despite these provisions, the
bill's chances in the House look
good. Ways and means committee
chairman Arnell Engstrom (R-
Traverse City) said that "the
House is rather committed to this
bill." He noted that the Legisla-
ture had initiated the study by
Dean John X. Jamrich of Michi-
gan State University's education
school which led to the writing of
the "piggy-back" bill, so "I'm pret-
ty sure we'll do something with'
Need for Action
Also, Engstrom cited the need to
"go one way or another this year"
toward setting up a degree-grant-
ing institution in the area. This
refers to an alternate proposal to
Jamrich's "piggy-back" plan: the
establishment . of a four-year
branch of the University on the
Delta campus. This plan will not
be submitted as a bill this year.
House Speaker Allison Green
(R-Kingston) noted that the ways
and means committee may restore
the $50,000 in planning appropria-
tions, or a similar figure.
Green added, "I would say if it
can pass two committees, there is
little doubt that it can pass the

House Democrats seem to agree.
Minority Floor Leader Joseph Ko-
walski (D-Detroit), Rep. Joseph
Gillis (D-Detroit) and Rep. George
Montgomery (D-Detroit) all said
they expect no party-line split on
the issue.
However, the Jamrich bill faces
stiffer opposition in the Senate.

chairman is Sen. William G. Milli-
ken (R-Traverse City), who says,

Hatcher Restates Bias Stand



nini stration

University President Harlan Hatcher reiterated the University's
policy and position on non-discrimination and the fair housing ordi-
nance before the Ann Arbor City Council at yesterday's Regents'
meeting and received support for his stand.
He again stressed "that the University should not attempt to
dictate legislation in Ann Arbor" by endorsing an ordinance. However,
he maintained that just because the University will not interfere with
the community, does not indicate an absence of direct endorsement
of a goal. H

'Very Discouraging'
He said increased fees in such
a measure "would be a very dis-
couraging element in trying to
get good students to come to the
University," ,
Rep. Martin D. Buth (R-Com-
stock Park), a member of the
House Committee on Education
which killed Allen's bill last year,
said "there was not too much in-
terest in it" at that time and he

Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont raised
three objections:
1) Could the promissory notes
S(hich students would have to
sign before receiving a diploma)
be enforced in court?
Stop Non-Signers?
2) How could the state stop the
University from granting a diplo--
ma to someone who hadn't signed
the note?
3) A lot of capital outlay money
is needed now, andthe bill simply
won't provide enough money in
enough time.
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann
Arbor asserted that "this is a form
of a delayed fee increase, and

dates emerged last night with the
most backing in the race to suc-
ceed Steven Stockmeyer, '63, as
chairman of the Michigan Federa-
tion of College Young Republicans.
Claims of dirty campaign tactics
were commonplace here as cam-
paigning reached a fever peak.
Lou Ferrand of Alma College
and Allan Howell of Wayne State
University gathered the strongest
delegate support, while Fletcher
Monnigh of Michigan State Uni-
versity. apparently lacked suffi-
cient voting strength to make a
bid for the post.
However, who will actually get
the job is unlikely to be decided
until late this afternoon when the
votes are polled on the, conven-
tion floor. Howell is a conservative
and running on a platform ad-
vocating "party unity." Ferrand,
a moderate, claims the support of
the University delegation.

Relates Data
On Negroes
In compliance with the request
from President John F. Kennedy's
Committee on Equal Employment
Opportunity ,for employment sta-
tistics on the number of minority
group employes, the University has
reported that 10.4 per cent of its
employes are Negroes.
A visual check was made which
showed that 1,052 of the Universi-
ty's 10,072 employes are Negroes,
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont told
the Regents yesterday.
Ask Information
Kennedy's committee had asked
that all contractors with the fed-
eral government supply the re-
quested information. The Univer-
sity was reluctant to comply until
it was advised that the compilation
of these statistics was not in vio-
lation of the .Michigan Fair Em-
ployment Practices Act.

committee's program to eliminate

at the University to discuss a

Views Varyt
Reactions to the City Council'sI
action slating discussion of a pro-
posed fair housing ordinance for1
next Monday are varied.
Mayor Cecil O. Creal and Fifth
Ward Republican Councilman1
John R. Laird felt that the coun-t
cil's action would not have been1
affected by a statement from Uni-
versity President Harlan Hatcher1
favoring a fair housing ordinance.
Both men also felt that a state-
ment from Hatcher would have no
effect on future legislation. Com-
mented Creal, "No one person canj
influence legislation."
However, both Fourth Ward Re-
publican Councilman Wendell E.
Hulcher and First Ward Democrat
CouncilmanLynn W. Eley felt that1
a statement from the president
would have an effect on the pass-
age of the ordinance.
Wait for StateE
Mrs. Wendell Hobbs, president
of the Ann Arbor Board of Real-
tors, felt that "it would be foolish
for Ann Arbor to act before we,
know what the state Legislature is
going to do about the problem.",
Mrs. Albert Wheeler, president;
of the Ann Arbor Chapter of the
National Association for the Ad-
vancement of Colored People, felt
that President Hatcher should
make a statement favoring a fair
housing ordinance.
Commend HRC
She commended the Human Re-
lations Commission for its work in
drafting the ordinance but felt
that some provisions ought to be
Specifically, she asked for a
clearer definition of "owner" and
"person," reduction of the mini-
mum number of units in a multi-
ple dwelling as defined in the or-
dinance to four, and making an
injunction mandatory if the com-
mission fails to conciliate the par-
ties, rather than leaving the de-
cision to the city attorney.
David Aroner, '64, chairman of
the Student Government Council
Human Relations Board, said the
board would undertake a study of
the proposed ordinance from "the
viewpoint of the students."
,Paid Staff
He also called for a paid profes-
sional staff to enforce the ordi-
nance and for a reduction in the
minimum number of units in a
defined multiple dwelling to three.
Aroner added that "at no time
did the board ask President Hatch-
er to 'dictate' legislation to the city
council." In fact, he thought that
the board would object to the
University "dictating" any legisla-
tion to anyone.
Graduate Student Council came
out in favor of fair housing at its
meeting Thursday night and called
for a public statement from Presi-
dent Hatcher in accord with Re-

-Unit Outline
The University can expect to
receive a report from Gov. George
Romney early next week delineat-
ing the purposes and functions of
his proposed "blue-ribbon" com-
mittee on education, Vice-Presi-
dent and Director of the Dearborn
Center William E. Stirton told the
Regents yesterday.
He said that it is his understand-
ing that the committee would have
a large number of members, but
only a few would be professional
educators. Educators would func-
tion as consultants.
Study Needs
The general purpose of the pro-
posed group would be to study the
educational needs of the entire
state in an attempt to formulate
a "master plan" for education.
Hopefully the group would report
by next October, Stirton predicted.
'Regents Eugene B. Power of
Ann Arbor and Donald M. D.
Thurber of Grosse Pointe voiced
strong objections to the "blue rib-
bon" body.

has been "studied to death." He'
deplored the fact that the Co-

"This is just another study com-
mittee to avoid making a decision"
on the pressing needs of education,
Power asserted. The study appar-
ently is being made by "people
who dop't know anything about
education," .he added.
'Who Will Decide'
Regent Thurber said that when
the proposed study group finished
its report there would be the prob-
lem of "who will decide if the re-
port is acceptable." He and Regent
Power pointed out that the Russell
Report on educational needs com-
pleted in 1954 had been ignored

In 1951, the Legislature prom-

ical science units when the Medi-
cal School increased its freshman
class to 200. Since that time, one

for funds to plan the. second have
been ignored for 10 years.
President Harlan Hatcher de-
clared that he had not received
an official explanation from the
governor, and Vice-President for
Business and Finance Wilbert K.
Pierpont added that "there is no
sense in getting excited until we
receive such information."
Assistant to the vice-president
for business and finance John J.
McKevitt, said thjat "we cannot
tell what is in Romney's mind.
however, one possible explanation
is that the Legislature was "think-
ing in terms of cost projections for
the next few years," and that per-
haps there was a "dollar limit" on
what the state can afford. "This
could be an explanation, however
it is not an excuse," he said.
Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-
Traverse City), chairman of the
Joint Legislative Committee on

he did not have the details, "it
would appear that if it were not

gents yesterday that although

phasized that he believes that the
governor has put too much of his
budget into the "mortgage" side
of fiscal reform. The president
said he believes that more money
should have been invested in the
universities as job-creating crea-
tive institutions.
He said that before the budget
had been announced Romney had
given him clear understanding
that "things would be better than
what they are" for the University

Report No Progress on Plans
Despite an improved financial situation, the erection of amulti-
purpose building is not any more imminent than at the same time
last year, the Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics reported
to the Regents yesterday.
In its annual report, the board reviewed steps that had been
taken prior to the 1962 annual report towards planning of the con-
struction of a new structure to replace Yost Field House. Prof. H. O.
"Fritz" Crisler, chairman, and Marcus L. Plant, secretary, submitted
the report for the board.
However, the proposed multi-purpose building will be more than
a home court for the Michigan basketball team. Facilities for hockey,
track, gymnastics, and wrestling would also be included so that the
building would house all the winter sports except swimming.

Parallels to America's "Second City" and Britain's "Establish-
ment," short and often impromptu satirical skits, also exist in Poland.
"Mostly amateur student groups, these are a big force in our social,
political and artistic life," Kowalski said.
Polish acting techniques exhibit similar scope. Until ten years
ago, the Stanislavsky method dominated, but today "it depends on
the individual teacher. And every student must have different teach-
ers, so there is a competition between methods," Golinski explained.
In addition to Stanislavsky's, the Brecht technique and the Eng-
lish school characterized by Sir Laurence Olivier enjoy attention. James
Dean is "the idol of Poland's young actors," he said, citing the popular
