Peru Junta Holds Crisis Parley

LIMA (P)--Peru's military boss-
es held an extraordinary session
last night to deal with what junta
leader Gen. Richardo Perez Godoy
described as a crisis.
"There is a crisis and the rea-
sons will be revealed later," Perez
Godoy told newsmen in the na-
tional palace before returning to,
the meeting.

Perez Godoy would neither con-
firm nor depy rumors that he was
resigning because of a dispute
among the 12 junta members over
national elections set for June 9.
He said as long as he is a mem-
ber of the junta the elections will
be held as scheduled "with all
parties participating."
However, it was understood

Barnett Wins Approval
For Primary Proposal
JACKSON M)-Ross Barnett's proposal for presidential primary
elections won a smashing 101-12 House victory yesterday paving
the way for states rights control of Mississippi's electors next year.
The measure, which provides parties must hold primaries when
two slates of electors are nominated, had passed 30-11 in the Senate
Rep. L. L. McAllister, the state's first Republican legislator
in four decades, said in the only opposition speech the big question

that powerful elements within
the armed forces were pressing
the junta to outlaw the leftist
Apra Party of Victor Raul Haya
de La Torre because of a grudge
going back to the 1930's when the
Apra Party was involved in a
bloody clash with the army.,
Haya won a plurality but not
the required majority in presi-
dential elections last year which
the military annulled in ousting
the elected democratic regime of
President Manuel Prado.
The military gave as its reasons
alleged fraud in the election.
Critics accused the military bosses
of trumping up the charges to
block the possible election of Haya
by congress, which was to have
decided the presidency because the
balloting was inconclusive.
The United States held up rec-
ognition of the military govern-
ment until after it gave assurances
that free elections would be held
within a year and all democratic
parties would be permitted to take
Gen. Nicolas Lindley, Minister
of War and one of four joint pres-
idents of Peru's ruling junta, quit
last night. Lindley gave no reason
for his resignation.
Lindley said the crisis was not
connected in any way with the
scheduled June 9 elections to re-
place junta rule. "They will be
held anyway," he said.
He claimed support for his de-
mand that Perez Godoy get out.
"It is the opinion of the junta
that Perez Godoy should quit,"
he said in an interview. "He has
to go. All the armed forces want
him out. If Perez Godoy does not
resign the armed forces will take
action "
He gave no reason for his anger
with Perez Godoy except to say it
was "the way he was behaving."

'Project X'
Provost Clifford E. Erickson of
Michigan State University last
night defined Project X as "a
continuous program of curriculum
organization" and denied that it
had been responsible for any fac-
ulty resignations.
"I don't know of any faculty
resignations because of Project X,"
he said, despite the statement by
Prof. Bernard Duffey that his
decision to leave the university
was "immediately motivated" by
the project.
Erickson said that the project
contains "few specifics" and that,,
contrary to resigning professors'
criticisms, much of the program
is left up to the faculty. "We just
ask them to look at the problems
of increased enrollment, research
and faculty salaries and to work
out the academic reorganization
that will make these things pos-
However Prof. Duffey asserted
that "it is frustrating for faculty
members to feel that they aren't
consulted about a major change in
organization and curriculum," im-
plying that the faculty was riot
playing an extensive role in plan-
nling the program.
Erickson noted that the pro-
gram has been under way for
about two years and was not a
sudden change in policy.
Prof. Duffey and three other
members of MSU's faculty who are
resigning in the fall claimed that
the handling of Project X, which
is formally called the Educational
Development Project, exemplified
their reasons for leaving.

"It is obviously aimed at keep-
ing Mississippi from becoming a
two-party state," McAllister said
in his first speech since election
last month.
Rep. Thompson McClellan, a co-
author who handled the measure
on the floor, retorted "Woe come
that day. We'll be just like New
York City and Chicago. We'll have
control by minority groups."
McClellan said the bill "was
going to prevent us from dividing
the Democrats of Mississippi (in
the general election) ."

NEW YORK (A)-Walter Hall-
stein, president of the European
Common Market Commission, yes-
terday made a strong plea for
Atlantic partnership in the "fore-
seeable future" between America
and a European Community that
will "one day" include Britain.
Hallstein rejected the idea of
Europe as a "third force" between
East and West and objected to
proposals for an "Atlantic com-
munity" in which a united Europe,
as he put it, would one day be
The third option of an Atlantic
partnership, he said, is the "choice
not only of Europe but also of the

American government ... for -the
foreseeable future, partnership re-
mains our ideal."
Talks with Kennedy
Hallstein, who is leaving later
tonight for Washington and talks
with President Kennedy and top
officials, addressed a select au-
dience of nearly 1000 business and
industry leaders and faculty mem-:
bers at Columbia University.
Some observers saw the speech
as an attempt to pacify that part
of the American public opinion
which was dismayed by Britain's
failure to get into .the Common
Market. They felt Hallstein came
here to "bury the hatchet" and
chart a new course for the future.
"In the first place we must
resist the temptation to indulge
in sterile recriminations," said
Hallstein, who in the eyes of the
British, at least, was next to
French President Charles de
Gaulle largely responsible for the
break-up of the Brussels talks in
No Comment
"When the negotiations were
suspended . . .it could not fairly
be said either that they had al-
ready failed on technical grounds
or that they were already on the
verge of success," Hallstein said.

would be required unless two slates
of electors were approved at .the
party state convention.
The Republicans would have to
pay the cost of a primary becausej
state law requires a party poll
one-third of the vote in the pre-
ceding presidential race to qual-
ify for state-financed primaries.
Under the party primary bill,
the state party conventions would
meet after the national nominat-
ing conventions and hear delegates
report on candidates and plat-
forms. Then the state conventions
of either party would nominate
presidential electors.
Elector Slates
Ten per cent of the delegates
could nominate a slate of electors,
permitting both conservative and
loyalist factions to submit slates.
Party primaries would then be
held to determine which slate went
on the ballot in the general elec-
tion under the party label.
The losers could still qualify a
slate of electors by petition, but
would not get the party symbol.

Southern Schools Lose Ground in Fight

a recent article in the Washington
According to a report by the

MADISON-Iowa, sneaking up
on co-favored Michigan and Wis-

the final event, Vthe record-
smashing mile relay, captured the
53rd annual Big Ten Indoor

In so doing, the surprosing Iowa

Going into the final race, however,

Clams Story
Winthrop College student gov-
ernment president Mary Anne
Garrison said last night that Fri-
day's Associated Press story saying
that the college was "ready to
accept a Negro student" and that
student statements to the press
have to pass through the school's
public relations office was incor-
rect in its interpretation.
The AP story said the South
Carolina college for women had
issued the statement on readiness
after a story appeared in the Rock
Hill Evening News quoting a num-
ber of students as saying the col-
lege was ready for such steps.
Miss Garrison said it had always
been the policy of the college to
require press releases to pass
through the public relations office.
She said the Evening Herald had
asked only three students about
their opinions on whether the col-
lege was prepared to admit a
Negro. Because of this, the admin-
istration, in agreement with the
Student Senate, informally de-
cided that it should be made clear
to the press that in the future
they indicate the number of stu-
dents they had spoken with when
reporting campus opinion.
Charles Walters, news editor for
the Evening Herald, said the News
had polled over 20 students' opin-
ions on the question. The only ex-
planation he could offer for Miss
Garrison's differing story was that
only three of the students who had
been asked their opinion stayed to
have their picture taken.

aries usually go together," the
Board stated.
"The South's failure to provide
a greater spread between the sal-

fessors is made more serious by
the large pay differences between
the South and nation generally,"
the report stated.
"The facts are inescapable," the
Board said. "It takes more money

Rouses India
To Protests
On Kashmir
U.S. Remarks Show
Concern for Talks
On Indian Question
By The Associated Press
KARACHI - Red Chinese and
Pakistani authorities signed an
agreement in Peking yesterday de-
fining their 300-mile-long border,
which involves a part of Kashmir.
India's government, claimant to
all Kashmir and antagonist'of Red
China in a border dispute of their
own, lodged an immediate protest.
Details of the pact-one of a
series which Mao Tze-Tung's
Communist regime has negotiated
with various neighbors-were an-
nounced here by a foreign minis-
try spokesman of Pakistan, which
is allied militarily with the West.
Bhutto Signs
Foreign Minister Zulfikar All
Bhutto signed for Pakistan.
Radio Peking quoted Bhutto as
expressing a desire for a peaceful
settlement of both the Kashmir
and China-India disputes.
On the Indian-Pakistani nego-
tiations about Kashmir's future:
"Our wish and prayer is, in the
interests of peace in this subcon-
tinent and peace in Asia, that this
problem is settled by honorable
and peaceful means."
On the India-China border
question: "I would like to appeal
to the Indian government to enter
into negotiations with the People's
Republic of China to settle this
problem, because this is the only
means and the only way by which
disputes can be settled."
Pakistan Profit
The spokesman implied Pakis-
tan profited from the settlement,
saying it gets control of six of
the seven passes in the disputed
area and 750 square miles more
than it demanded.
The Chinese had claimed 3400
square miles along the line from
Karakoram Pass to the Pakistani-
Afganistan boundary and in some
areas occupied the ground, the
spokesman said. Under the agree-
ment, he said, China will control
2050 square miles of largely moun-
tainous and uneconomic territo'y
while Pakistan gets 1350 square
miles of fertile land.
Simultaneously a New China
News Agency dispatch broadcast
from Peking disclosed Afghanistan
is next on the Chinese list.
The dsipatch said Red China
and Afghanistan have agreed to
begin negotiations on a boundary
treaty. It did not specify when.
In Washington, t h e United
States expressed concern today
that a new Pakistan-Red China
border agreement might endanger
negotiations between Pakistan and
India on a Kashmir settlement.
The carefully-worded state de-
partment comment sought to
avoid giving offense either to
Pakistan, a United States ally, or
to India, which gets United States
economic assistance.
The signing of the Pakistan-
Red China pact was disclosed to-
day at Peking, Red China's capi-
tal. Pakistan's foreign minister
Bhutto arrived in Peking a few
days ago.
Since China attacked India over
disputed mountain border areas
the United States has been press-
ing the Indian and Pakistan gov-
ernments to compose their dif-
ferences over the state of Kashmir.
It wants them to build more
friendly relations to help meet the
Red Chinese threat.
The United States argument is
that in the long run both Pakis-
tan and India are endangered by

China. --
Pakistan has protested United
States military help to India. In-
dia more recently has objected
to Pakistan's border treaty with
China, contending it involves
Kashmir territory India claims.
In such controversies the United
States is caught in the middle.
The state department said it
has not yet received a full report
on the Peking pact "but on the
basis of available information it
would annear that theaereeament
