Senate To Receive 'U Bills


Special To The Daily
LANSING-The Senate, Appro-
priations Committee will report
out a University appropriations
bill "along the lines of the Gov-
ernor's request,"' its chairman,
Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-St. Clair)
said last night.

This would mean a 1963-64 op-
erating appropriation of about
$38.2 million. The University re-
quested $43.9 million.
In another action, the House
Committee on Ways and Means
will consider the "piggy-beck" plan

As New President of Union
Raymond Rusnak, '64, was named the new president of the
Michigan Union last night, succeeding Robert Finke, '63.
Also named to senior positions by the Selections Committee of
the Union Board of Directors were Robert McKenzie, '64, executive
vice-president and Norman Peslar, '64E, administrative vice-president.
Rusnak saw his most important job as "guiding the direction

for Delta College tdoay-an action
partially delayed by press reports
that Gov. George Romney wants
to postpone action on college ex-
pansion in the Delta area until
his "blue-ribbon citizens' commit-
tee" on education makes a state-
wide study of college needs.
May Report
The ways and means committee
may report the bill with "strength-
ening amendments" to the House
floor, its chairman, Rep. Arnei
Engstrom' (R-Traverse City) said
last night.
Engstrom will meet with Rom-
ney this morning, seeking clarifi-
cation of the Governor's position
on Delta, which the committee has
not officially received.
The "piggy-back" bill would es-
tablish an independent two-year
senior college near Delta, a locally-
supported junior college. It is an
alternative plan to one which
would establish a four-year Uni-
versity branch at Delta.
Although nothing is definite
until the committee considers it,
the "piggy-back" bill may be
brought to the House floor and
passed for the record, Engstrom
said. The Senate, he continued,
would then hand the matter over
to the "blue-ribbon" group.
No Figures Yet
The exact figures on the Uni-
versity operating appropriation
cannot be released until the bill is
reported out, Beadle asserted.
Engstrom, who also chairs the
Joint Legislative Committee on
Capital Outlay, said that this com-
mittee has submitted its recom-
mendations for the University
capital-outlay appropriation to
Beadle's appropriations commit-
Beadle said that his committee
is considering the recommenda-
tion and expects to report it iut
on the Senate floor by Wednesday.
"We've got to get the bill out
this week," he noted.
Awiiards Bid
To Detroit
NEW YORK W)-The Board of
Directors of the U.S. Olympic
Committee reconfirmed last night
its choice of Detroit as the U. S.
city which should bid for the
1968 Olympic games.
The vote was 32 for Detroit, 4
for Los Angeles, 2 for Portland,
Ore., and 1 each for San Fran-
cisco and Philadelphia.
Five Cites
The decision was made after an
all-day session at Olympic House
where the board reviewed pre-
sentations from five cities-San
Francisco, Portland, Ore., Phila-
delphia, Los Angeles and Detroit.
Detroit was picked as the single
U. S. bidder for the games at a
meeting last October in Chicago,
but a rview was ordered by the
11-member U. S. Olympic Execu-
tive Committee after a protest by
Los Angeles.
It was contended that the board
had not heard full presentations
from the cities seeking the games.
Present Cases
The governor of Michigan,
George Romney, and the Detroit
mayor, Jerome P. Cavanaugh,
headed a 19-man delegation of in-
dustrial and civic leaders who
presented their case to the 41-
member board.
"If we get the games, you will
see the greatest Olympiad ever
held," Romney said.
He sharply criticised opposition
to Detroit's original selection,,

Sends No
The University does not plan to
send a representative to tonight's
Ann Arbor City Council public
hearings on the proposed fair
housing ordinance, Michael Rad-
ock. director of public relations,
said last night.
However, University President
Harlan Hatcher's letter to the
council was filed at last night's
regular council meeting. The ab-
sence of a University representa-
tive at tonight's hearings does not
preclude the possibility of send-
ing a representative to any other
council meeting, President Hatch-
er said.
"If as the ordinance develops it
appears that a substantial num-
ber of University personnel are
affected, or that further testimon-
ial on the part of the University
is indicated, then we would have
a representative present," he said
Not Indicated
"I do not beev tnat this situ-
ation has as yet been indicated,"
the President said.
Radock added that "it is im-
possible to say in legalistic terns
under what conditions the Uni-
versity will send representatives."
David Aroner, '63, chairman of
the SGC Human Relations Board,
said, "There is ample evidence
that amendments introduced last
week will affect substantial num-
bers of University personnel.
Provides Information
"The HRB will continue to pro-
vide additional information which
may aid a representative of the
University in presenting public
testimony before Thursday when
the city Human Relations Com-
mission meets. This testimony
would be on the specific parts of
the ordinance which would con-
cern the University," Aroner said.
Republican Mayor Cecil O. Creal
said, "I do not think that a rep-
resentative from the University
could add anything beyond the
contents of President Hatcher's
letter to the council."
However, first ward Democratic
councilman Lynn Eley said, "A
University representative w h o
would present information to the
council would be desirable.
Testimony Helpful
"It would be helpful to have
additional information given to
the council on University stu-
dents' and faculty's experience
with discrimination in Ann Arbor.
"However, I believe that Presi-
dent Hatcher's letter to Mayor
Creal and his comments on the
subject of discrimination provide
unqualified backing of the concept
of fair housing legislation," Eley
Last night at city council, a
motion by Eley to set next Mon-
day as the date for the second
reading of the ordinance was de-
feated. The date is still undeter-
Two or Three Hearings
In other action, Creal called for
"two public hearings, possibly
three." Next Monday's city coun-
cil work session will dscuss pro-
posed amendments and public
hearing testimony.
A public demonstration sched-
uled for the session will urge pass-
age of the ordinance before te
April 1 elections.
The public hearings will last
two hours, with individual testi-
mony limited to two minutes.
WUOM-FM, the University's radio
station, will broadcast tonight's
hearing, which begins at 7:30 p.m.

On Education
Special To The Daily
LANSING-Gov. George Rom-
ney's 50-man "blue ribbon" citi-
zens' committee on higher educa-
tion will have a major influence
in shaping future state higher
education policy, even to the point
of drawing up a master plan, sev-
eral key legislators agreed yester-
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) saw the committee draw-
ing up a "master plan" for future
educational development. He said
that a rational scheme was need-
ed for the long-range development
and distribution of higher educa-
The plan would provide for an
orderly allocation of funds for the
location of new facilities and for
capital expansion of current ones,
he indicated.
Long Range
He stressed it would also pro-
vide for long-range development.
If the state could not go for-
ward one year, because of insuffi-
cient funds, it could effectively
catch up in succeeding years as it
knows where it is going.
Bursley said the commission s
role of co-ordinating higher edu-
cation would be taken over by the
state board of education created
in the proposed constitution.
"The study would develop a gen-
eral philosophy of higher educa-
tion in Michigan and come up
with a general plan,- respecting
the state's geography, environ-
ment and 'political aspirations of
various groups," Senate majority
leader Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) explained.
He said the commission would
give guidelines for spending on
higher education.
"The commission would decide
where education is going. Now the
Legislature provides mvney for
programs the universities startl
without any bearing on higher
education of the state," Thayer
Budgetary Demands

mands both in education and from
competing needs require that the

the future along with expanded

Viewing the work of the Union-

serted that the committee is cor-

Commenting on the fear that
some women have of seeing a
single organization dominated by
men, Rusnak claimed that this
was not the important issue. He
cited Wisconsin, whose student
union has had women presidents
as evidence that male domination
is not inevitable.
Rusnak, who will become an ex-
officio member of Student Gov-
ernment Council, saw two basic
areas where he would like to see
the body work. These are student-
faculty government which he sees
as "stronger than the present sys-
tem," and a breakdown of the
strict party lines which the cam-
pus is currently tied up in.
Special Projects
Turning to special projects he
explained that he is interested

He also thinks the Union Board
should be modified. "It is unreal-
istic to have it as it presently
exists. An 18 man board is too
unruly, a smaller board would
insure more equal representation."
The Selections Committee made
alterations in the role of the two
vice-presidents. In addition to his
other duties, McKenzie, who sue-
'ceeds Jon Carlson, '63, will fuxic-
tion as the administrative head of
the Student Activities Wing, hav-
ing "definite responsibility for the
operation of some of the executive
council committees, and for the
entire budgeting process of the
activities wing. 'He will also co-
ordinate the legislative efforts of
the board of directors.

'63, Peslar will add to his con-
stitutional responsibilities Lh. ad-

.ng Rule

fore the Court.
Attorney General Frank Kelly,
a Democrat who has actively work-
ed for the reapportionment of
Michigan's Legislature, lauded the
bill as a victory for the "one man,'
one vote" concept.
Sen. Raymond Dzendzel (D-De-
troit), former Senate minority
leader, who led the fight for Sen-
ate reapportionment in that
chamber last .year, asserted that
the proposed Michigan constitu-
tion 's apportionment of Senate
districts is unconstitutional in light
of the Georgia decision.
No Affect
Sen. Farrell E. Roberts (R-Pon-
tiac), chairman of the Senate Ju-
diciary Committee which is work-
ing on the reapportionmentof the
state's congressional districts and
the Legislature, said the Georgia
decision"dotsnot affect Michi-
gan's problems."
He said the decision indicates
that all votes have to be equal
within districts and that it will
only partially affect reapportion-
ment considerations.
Edward A. McLogan, executive
director of the coordinating com-
mittee for the new constitution,
said, "The highly unusual Geor-
gia county unit system which is
unknown to Michigan was what
the court was considering.
University Opinions
At the University, Prof. Eugene
Feingold commented that "the ma-
jority opinion does state "one per-
son-one vote" rule and thus es-
tablishes an idea which may be
carried over to a non-statewide
basis." But he explained that in
view of Justice Thomas Clark's
concurring opinion, the rule as of
now applies only to statewide elec-
tion of officials responsible to the
entire state.
However, Prof. Norman C.
Thomas noted that "one could
argue that the Michigan legisla-
tive apportionment was adopted
in a statewide election.
"But we can't say if the court
would accept this argument until
we get a more concrete judicial
expression on apportionment re-
garding state legislatures or con-
gressional districts," he said.
Prof. John White emphasized
this point. He said that "we can't
regard it (the Georgia case) as
conclusive until we get a case
which is specfically on state leg-
islative apportionment."

need to work for a statement of<
authority for AHC so that the
dormitories can have a unified
front and so that Assembly can
become a legislative body," Miss
Hager said. "It is also important
in order to have a direct line of
communication and representa-
tion," she said.
Written Rules
"Although Assembly as a whole
and its chairmen know the areas
in which they are to function, we
want to have these written down,"
she commented.
"Once we have the statement
of authority, we need to take it
back to the houses for their op-
inions," Miss Loomis noted. "More
effective communication between
individuals, Assembly and the ad-
ministration is needed," she added.
Miss Hager cited a closer rela-
tionship between Inter-Quadrangle
Council and Assembly as a natural
out-growth of co-ed housing,
which will be implemented next
IQC Merger?
"Due to my work on the co-ed
housing committee this past se-
mester, I have gained insight into
the structure of IQC and I feel
there may be a basis for a merger
between it and Assembly," she
"We can work for this merger
with joint meetings and obtain
closer union in the areas for which
both organizations are responsible
through joint study committees,'
she pointed out.
Miss Loomis, who has also work-
ed on co-ed housing, noted that
Assembly's sphere of authority
must be clearly defined before
such a merger can take place.
Women's Hours
"Then Assembly can also rep-
resent the feelings of the inde-
pendent Women in the matter of
liberalizing women's hours," she
"o think it is of the utmost im-
portance in the next year to work
with Panhellenic Association and
the Joint Judiciary Council to im-
plement extended closing hours for

To Equalize
Ballot Power
Decision To Remove
County-Unit System
Fromi tate Primaries
preme Court took another step
yesterday toward equalizing the
ballot power of city voters with
that of the rural voter.
f It laid down in an 8-1 decision
a "one voter, one vote" rule for
statewide elections.
The decisionkilled Georgia's
county-unit system for nominat-
ing candidates for United States
senator and judicial officers re-
sponsible to a statewide constitu-
ency. The system was used at
times also in congressional elec-
Maryland Rule
It left on the hook, ready for
over-ruling in another legal ac-
tion, Maryland's county-unit plan.
Maryland is the only other state
having a county-unit plan similar
to Georgia's.
Under the Georgia county-unit
system the candidate winning a
majority or plurality of a county's
popular vote got all its unit votes.
No county had less than two units
and none more than six. Thus, it
was possible for a candidate to
poll a popular-vote majority in a
statewide poll but still lose in the
county-unit tally.
Expect Decision
The ruling apparently had been
widely expected among Georgia
politicians because it had been
foreshadowed by a 1960 decision
of a special three-judge federal
court which forced conduct of last
year's Democratic primary on a
popular-vote basis.
In Atlanta, Gov. Carl E. Sanders
said the Supreme Court decision
outlawing the county unit system
was no surprise and that Georg-
ians like the popular vote basis on
which he won last September.
Yesterday's county-unit decision,
wvritten by Justice William O.
Douglas, was the Court's first in-
volving voters' rights since a land-
mark case from Tennessee which
was decided'last March 26.
Apportionment Case
In that case the Court said fed-
eral judges have the right to re-
view state legislative apportion-
ment to determine whether in-
vidious discrimination is involved
against city and suburban voters.
Legislative apportionment was
not involved in the Georgia case
and this fact was stressed by Jus-
tice Potter Stewart in a concur-
ring opinion in which Justice Tom
C. Clark joined.
.The legislative apportionment
has brought a wave of litigation,
but the Supreme Court has still
not laid down any fixed guidelines
for parceling out state legislative
Last Primary
Georgia conducted its latest pri-
mary election without using the
county-unit system. This was made
necessary when a lower court in
Atlanta ruled the system denied
voters equal protection of law and
enjoined its use.
One result of the popular vot-
ing was the defeat of veteran Rep.
James C. Davis of the fifth Geor-
gia district. He lost in the Demo-
cratic primary to Charles L. Welt-
ner who subsequently won In the
general election.
Justice John M. Harlan, the
lone dissenter, cited the dissent-
ing opinion of retired Justice Felix
Frankfurter in the Tennessee leg-
islative apportionment case to the
effect that "one person, one vote"
has never been the universially
accepted policy in England, the
