SGC Backs Harris Report on Anti-ias ut


To Ask Approval
From Authorities
Requests Power To Veto Selection
Of General Counsel for Comnitee
Student Government Council last night gave its unanimous
endorsement to the recommendations of Prof. Robert G. Harris of
the Law School which clarifies Council authority to implement its
anti-discrimination regulation.
After making four specific changes requested by Council, Prof.
Harris, who appeared before SGC, will ask for Regental approval
of his proposal at the March 22 Regents' meeting.
Council specifically asked- for a provision which would give the

body a veto over the membership

.. the American press
r .
Controversial journalist William
Worthy yesterday described "the
news that the American people do
not get" about South Korea, South
Vietnam, Cuba and Mississippi.
Worthy was the first man in-
dicted under the passport permis-
sion provision of the McCarran-
Walter Act of 1952. The State
Department took away his pass-
port after he went to China and
Hungary. Worthy went to Cuba
without a passport and was in-
dicted after he returned to the
United States. Facing a three
month prison sentence, he is ap-
pealing his case.
Worthy said that only part of
the story is being reported:
Unreported Facts
1) About Cuba-While many
Cubans are leaving Cuba, many
living in the United States are
1going back to Cuba, but this is
seldom reported.
2) About South Vietnam-The,
rebels against "the dictatorial"
Diem government now control
two-thirds of the country, accord-
ing to Worthy. He compared Unit-
ed States support of the "feudal-
ists" with the French colonial war
in Indochina. The French even-
tually lost, and this will be the
destiny of the United States in
Vietnam because the tide of war
already has turned against the
American side, Worthy said.
3) About South Korea-This
country, with its "corrupt govern-
ment," remains a "mudhole" de-
spite American aid, Worthy said.
"North Korea is by contrast an
economic showcase-but none of
this is reported."
4) About Mississippi-Negroes
there are living in terror, accord-
ing to Worthy, but this matter
does not make the mass media.
Lauds European Press
The European press often re-
ports what the American press
misses or ignores, Worthy added.
He noted that the American
press has a way of describing
rebels against a regime that the
United States opposes as "Free-
dom Fighters" but rebels against
a regime that the United States
supports as "terrorists" or "guer-

President John F. Kennedy finds
himself politically bound to do
things as President that are con-
trary to the spirit of some of his
speeches as Senator.

*counsel, and also asked that Har-
ris make clear Council's sole
authority to make mnembership
Enforcement Problem
Members also questioned the
possibility of effective enforce-
ment of the Harris plan, noting
that penalties less than with-
drawal of recognition might be
challenged by violating groups.
Council, thus, asked Harris co in-
clude a clause which asks for ad-
ministrative implementation of
the decrees of the membership
SGC asked for a clarification
of the Harris definition of stu-
dent organizations, with some
members indicating concern that
student organizations might de-
clare themselves "unrecognized"
and thus not be subject to with-
drawal sanctions.
Generally, the Harris recom-
mendations ask for Council ap-
point:nent of a membership com-
mittee to investigate and prose-
cute student organizations found
in violation of Council's anti-dis-
criminatory regulation.
Appoint Judge
According to the Harris plan,.
Council would also appoint a
membership judge to try cases of
violation, with withdrawal of rec-
ognition the maximum sanction
applied by the judge.
In other action, Council passed
a motion sponsored by its execu-
tive committee regretting that
SGC's Human Relations Board
"took such drastic public action
before it consulted with Student
Government Council."

Budget Cut
U.S. Power
WASHINGTON (P) - President
John F. Kennedy said yesterday
any substantial cuts in his budget
would make America second best
in space or military might or
would curtail programs "essential
to a better life for our people."
In a challenge to Republicans
in Congress who have called for
slashes ranging from $5 billion' to
$15 billion without spelling out
how to do it, Kennedy told his
news conference "I think we have
been generalized enough."
"I think we made a hard
budget," the President declared.
"You may be able to cut some of
it. But I think that I want to
know where they are going to cut
it and whose life is going to be
adversely affected by those cuts"
Kennedy struck particularly at
a statement by House GOP Ilad-
er Charles A Halleck of Indiana
that perhaps a $3-billion saving
in -defense outlays could be
achieved by whacking $1 billion
off spending plans of each of the
"It doesn't seem to me that we
ought to be cutting our defenses
at this time," the President said,
without mentioning Halleck.
The President noted that his
budget advisers already had re-
duced the money requests by the
three armed services by $13 bil-
lion and said "there are many
hard decisions made in reaching
the figure we reached."
Halleck, without giving details,
suggested last week that a cut
"upwards of $10 billion" in new
appropriations requested t h i s
year should reduce spending by
close to $5 billion in the fiscal
year starting next -July 1. Repub-
licans on the House Appropria-
tions Committee said Monday
they would seek to cut from $10
billion to $15 billion from admin-
istration spending plans.

Outlay Fund
To Follow
Romney Plan
May Alter Scheme
For Children's Unit
Capital outlay funds for the
University will probably follow
the requests of Gov. George Rom-
ney, although planning money for
a children's hospital may be sub-
stituted for similar dental school
or architecture college building
funds, Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-
Traverse City), chairman of the
Joint Legislative Committee on
Capital Outlay, said yesterday.
The University is scheduled to
receive $750,000 to complete the
remodeling of the heating plant,
$772,000 to complete the Institute
of Science and Technology Bldg.,
$2.3 million to continue construc-
tion of a music school building,
$500,000 to continue University
Hospital renovation and $500,000
to start a $2.565 million fluids
engineering building.
In addition, Romney's "quick
action" capital outlay request for
$155 million in planning funds in
the state calls for $100.000 to
plan a new dental school building
and $80,000 for a new architec-
ture college structure here.
The University has requested
$1.3 million for planning the $7.9
million children's hospital. It also
has sought $400,000 for preparing
plans for a second medical science
building. This request appears to
have gone unheeded as Engstrom
and his House Ways and Means
Committee toured the Medical
Center Monday night and yester-
A bill incorporating Romney's
$29 million capital outlay scheme
was introduced in the Senate yes-
terday by Sen. Frank D. Beadle
(R-St. Clair). The Senate Ap-
propriations Committee will nom-
inally consider it first, but the
joint committee, composed of four
members of the Ways and Means
and four from the Appropriations
Committee, will decide this year's
building package, Engstrom said.
Cor.luding its tour of the
Medical Center, Engstrom's com-
mittee met with University Presi-
dent Harlan Hatcher and other
administrators in a four-hour
session yesterday morning.
President Hatcher outlined the
University's capital outlay and
operating expenses needs,. essen-
tially restating his testimony last
month before the Senate Approp-
riations Committee, Executive
Vice-President Marvin L. Niehuss
Engstrom indicated he recog-
nized the University's appropria-
tions needs, especially for re-

Booklet for Freshmen
Explains 'U' Housing
The University has released a new mimeographed booklet,
"Design for Living-A Philosophy of Growth and Development," to
explain to incoming freshmen the University's housing philosophy
and facilities.
Considering the University's housing philosophy Vice-President
for Student Affairs James A. Lewis noted that the University "be-
lieves in a philosophy of growth. It recognizes that students arrive

expand these abilities at individual
- "The present system of housing
is designed to allow each student
to absorb responsibility as he is
able, and to give help, counselling
and discipline to those who need
Backgrounds Vary
The philosophy goes on to ex-
plain that students coming from
differing backgrounds bring with
them mores and traditions that
they test in new relationships
while at the University. It sees
students as maturing in their abil-
ity to accept personal responsi-
bility for themselves and others in
differing environments and thus
"some students will wish to remain
in a residence hall or sorority or
fraternity; others will find such a
close relationship stultifying.
"The University therefore pro-
vides choices within a variety of
housing, so that students may live
in different kinds of housing as
they progress," Lewis ended.
Describe Housing
The report goes on to describe
the various types of housing of-
fered University students includ-
ing the new types such as Oxford
housing for women and co-educa-
tional housing. It also includes
miscellaneous information for stu-
dents, pertaining to dress, finan-
ces, automobile regulations tnd

mester and will be mailed to all

Talks Reswme
NEW YORK ()-The Stereo-
typers Union declared itself on
strike last night against four
major dailies, adding another
roac~hlock to solution of the city's
89-day newspaper shutdown.
The stereotypers struck the
same four papers - the Times,
News, World Telegram and Sun
and Journal-American-that were
originally struck by the printers,
causing the shutdown of all the
city's major dailies.
The action by Local 1 of the
AFL-CIO Stereotypers Union will
have little immediate effect, but
it could delay the resumption of
publication by the dailies, if they
reach agreement with t h e
Stereotypers' 1 o c a l president
James McMahon said he had been
informed the publishers had no
commitment on issues he thought
were settled last December, and
his union had no alternative but
to strike. He did not identify the
issues involved.
T h e publishers, meanwhile,
continued talks with the printers
with some hopeful indications.
Mayor Robert Wagner cancel-
led a luncheon engagement in his
eagerness to keep the negotiations

Leader Wants
East German
Wilson, new leader of the British
Labor Party, suggests that it would
be "realistic and reasonable" to
extend some form of recognition
to the East German Communist
regime "however much we may
dislike it."
Otherwise, Wilson endorsed the
official United States and British
position that the presence of West-
ern troops in Berlin cannot be
negotiated away.
"I made it plain to deputy Soviet
Premier Atiastas Mikoyan that
this was the view of the British
Labor Party and of the British
people as a whole," Wilson said
in a radio-television interview
broadcast last night.
Asked whether he thought the
continued presence of Allied troops
in Berlin was a non-negotiable
item, Wilson replied, "Certainly
for the present, yes."
Wilson, indirectly, accused the
West German government of be-
ing more severe in judging others
who seek some normalization or
relations with the East Germans
than they are with themselves.

Figures Fit
Of Officials
Education Package
To Go to Committee
For Appropriations
Appropriations bills including
$38.2 million in general operating
funds and $4.822 million in capi-
tal outlay for the University were
introduced yesterday in t h e
These amounts were exactly
what Gov. George Romney had
recommended and, according to
Executive Vice-President Marvin
L. Niehuss, just about wh ,t Uni-
versity. officials had anticipated
for the 1963-64 budget. Key legis-
lators agree the figures probably
won't be increased or cut signifi-
cantly in either chamber.
The proposed allocations are $6
million and $4.8 million respec-
tively less than what the Regents
had requested, but are $1.5' mil-
lion and $1 million higher than
appropriations for the 1962-63
University budget.
Education Package
Sponsored by Sen. Frank D.
Beadle (R-St; Clair), the $115
million higher education package
now lies in the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee, which he chairs.
Beadle expects the bills to be re-
ported out to the floor within two
While Romney and legislative
moderates recognize the financial
problems of state universities, a
balanced budget , takes highest
priority for Michigan, Sen. Stan-
ley G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor) said
last night.
Hence, with strong pressures to
keep spending down, any increase
for the University "would be rob-
bing Peter to pay Paul." If any
change at all comes about, it mst
likely will be added funds for the
Institute of Science and Teoh-
nology, Thayer said.
Budget Alterations
If the budget is cut slightly, it
would be due to making more
money available for parochial
school b u s transportation, a
shortened work week for state
police or hospital treatment of
crippled children.
Sen. Philip Rahoi (D - Iron
Mountain), one of three Demo-
crats on the nine-man appropria-
tions committee, asserted that
"we're not satisfied with any of
the appropriations, but we don't
have the votes to change any-
A proposal to increase the Uni-
versity allocation probably won't
be decided upon until after the
bills are reported out, Rahoi com-
The outlook for Beadle's ap-
propriations bills is as bright in
the House as it is in the Senate,
Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) reported. He cited the
sympathy of many legislators for
t h e University's construction
needs, and the fact that out-of-
state students "no longer are a
live issue," as was the case last
spring in Lansing.
