Korean Junta Refuses
To End Military Rule,
Rejects U.S. Suggestion

Chooses Officers,
Elects Taylor President
The Fraternity Presidents' Assembly last night took two ballots to
elect Clifford W. Taylor, '64, as the new Inter-Fraternity Council
Taylor, a Lambda Chi Alpha from Flint, succeeds John Meyer-
holz, '63BAd, and takes office immediately. He will sit on Student Gov-
ernment Council tonight.
The FPA also elected Richard Mandel, '64, Sigma Alpha Mu, as
executive vice-president; Richard Belger, '64E, Delta Tau Delta, as ad-

... new IFC leader.

Former Interfraternity Presi-
dent John Meyerholz, '63BAd, last
night called for creation of a new
"board of governors in control of
fraternities to put them under re-
sponsible management."
The board would assume all au-
thority and power presently held
by Student Government Council
over fraternities "as organiza-
tions."' "The present SGC is the
worst student governing body I'
have ever seen," Meyerholz assert-
ed and added that SGC is man-
dated to solve the problems of the
fraternity eystem, although some
(Council) members do not under-
stand the inrti'cacies of the prob-
lems involved.
The -proposed board would con-
sist of IF personnel, O.fice of
Student Affairs officials and fra-
ternity alumni and would posses
final authority, except for the
Board of Regents, over all struc-
tural and procedural questions of
the system.
Fraternity Discrimination
Meyerholz expressed disappoint-
ment at the SGC attitude toward
fraternity problems. Specifically,
he said "discrimination is a prob-
lem in the systf m, but SGC will
not solve it properly" because the
present political split in its ex-
ecutive committee makes "effec-
tive action on fraternity prob-
lems" impossible.
Meyerholz, expressing what he
called the "lack of receptiveness
of SGC to the needs and desires
of the fraternity system," insisted
that "the only way the fraternity
system can continue to exist is to
come out f r o m under SGC
SGC President Thomas Brown,
'63BAd, said later that "if SGC
has failed to recognize and im-
plement the needs of the frater-
nity system, it has been because
the IFC president has not mad
those needs known. Except for the
issue of discrimination IFC has
never come to Council for help in
solving problems.
IFC Abdication
"The only reason Council has
authority in fraternity bias is that
the IFC itself has abdicated his
responsibility and not met the
problem itself."
Brown denied the role of Coun-
cil as an initiator of anti-frater-
nity and asserted that "all fra-
ternity problems and disturbances,
except the issue of discrimination,
emanate from the fraternity sys-
tem itself. and RGC deals with

*ministrative vice-president; Don-
ald MacRitchie, '64E, Beta Theta
Pi, secretary and Paul Robertson,
'64, Lambda Chi Alpha, as treas-
urer. Belger, MacRitchie and Rob-
ertson were elected by acclama-
tion at the end of a five-hour
IFC Endorsement
Taylor, Belger and Robertson
all had IFC executive committee
endorsement, expressed to the
body at the beginning of the meet-
ing by Meyerholz
Taylor centered his campaign
on the issue of more IFC direct
aid to individual houses which
face problems of rush, academic
pressure or other difficulties.
"I plan to exert strong executive
leadership in IFC to improve re-
lations among the houses, increase
communications among them and
work for more cooperation be-
tween IFC itself and individual
houses," Taylor declared.
He also expressed concern that
the FPA has played "too passive"
a role in forming fraternity regu-
lations and expresse the hope
that the FPA will bring legislation
to the meetings in addition to that
brought by IFC's executive com-
No Discrimination
"To my knowledge, there is no
written discrimination in the fra-
ternity system here," Taylor said
after his election, but he said he
would support the Harris proposal
to SGC as a "fine" document
aimed at ending discrimination
and opening legal channels for
SGC investigation into fraternity
and sorority bias.
He declined to comment, how-
ever, on the exact implementation
of the proposal, and said he was
not sufficiently informed to give
his complete definition of discrim-
ination or an outline of penalties
which SGC should have available
to act against fraternities.
Bursley Sees '
House Passage
For Delta Bill
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) said yesterday that the
Jamrich bill for Delta College,
scheduled to come to a vote in the
House today, would probably pass
by a large margin.
Bursley predicted, however,nthat
the bill would be bottled up in the1
Senate Committee on Education.
The committee is headed by Sen.
John Milliken (R-Traverse City)_
and includes Sen. Stanley Thayer
(R-Ann Arbor).
Both men are staunch foes ofJ
Jamrich's plan, which proposes the
establishment of a Saginaw Valley
Senior College offering only jun-
ior- and senior-year instruction.
Under the plan, Delta would con-
tinue to educate students on the
freshman-sophomore level only.
Romney Group
But Gov. George Romney's
"blue-ribbon" committee on higher
education may supersede any ac-
tion that the Legislature might
try to take on Delta plans, Burs
ley said.
In other House action, the $750,-
000 fund sought by Romney to
promote research at Michigan's
colleges was still dead today as
Bursley held off on adding the
proposal to the general appropri-
ations bill.
Bursley pointed out that "there
is a great deal of sentiment in
the House for the money, but

Park Claims
Martial Rule

From Washington
SEOUL ()-Korean Gen. Chung
Hee Park's junta yesterday spurn-
ed a suggestion from the United
States, the financial supporter of
South Korea, that it drop plans
to prolong its military rule and
give way to a civilian government.
Junta spokesman Lee Hu-Pak
announced the military position
stands unchanged, though he add-
ed that Korean civilian politicians
may still come up with compro-
mise proposals thatwdeserve at-

year old junta intends to pursue

more years through an April ref-
erendum despite a critical policy

ment press officer Lincoln White
in Washington Monday.
Threat to Stability
"We believe that prolongation
of military rule could constitute
a threat to stable and effective
government," White said in a
statement that carried President
John F. Kennedy's approval.
Lee declared that "it is the
Korean people themselves who
know best that the military gov-
ernment is providing a govern-
ment more stable and effective
than anything experienced in the
Some Koreans expressed con-
cern lest the junta's blast result
in a cut in the economic aid which
has kept South Korea going for
years and has heretofore given
the United States a strong voice
in Korean affairs.
Civilians Welcome
The United States statement
was welcomed by civilian anti-
government leaders, but appeared
to have come too late to bolster
their sagging movement to force
withdrawal of Park's proposal to
stay in power.
Premier Kim Hyun-Chul said he
considers the Washington state-
ment "a piece of advice to work

serious doubt he has access to the

Role of Regents
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of profiles of the
Regental candidates. Two Regents will be elected on April 1.)
A concern for "all the educational problems in the state"
marks the candidacy of William B. Cudlip, '26L, one of the two
Republican nominees for Regent.
Cudlip believes that the adoption of the new proposed
state constitution is one of the necessary first steps toward im-
proved statewide education. He sees its education article and tax
provisions as the primary means for aiding higher education.
"Educated citizens are the wealth of the state and Michigan's
education system must remain in the forefront," the candidate
Keep School Quality
In order to maintain quality education, "I would strive to
make sure that the state's entire educational plant is in shape"
to meet the needs of the exciting, demanding and dangerous age
in which we live," he says.
The new constitution's state board of education will be able
to "coordinate all the educational facilities of the state." How-
ever, the article still allows the three large universities to retain
their constitutional autonomy. Under the document the seven
other state-supported colleges and universities will have an ap-
pointed governing board. Community colleges would be under lo-
cal control, Cudlip points out.
He also defends the provision which would make the super-
intendent of public instruction .~.1
an appointive position rather
than an elective one because it
will take the superintendent out
of the "political arena."
Flexible Taxes
The new constitution's "more . /
flexible tax structure" will bene-
fit the University and the other
state schools. "Given the tools"
Gov. George Romney will pro-
vide adequate financial support
for the various institutions.:
"There have been 10-12 years
of poor fiscal status in Michi-
gan" which Romney has tot
counteract, he says.
"There are about 70 provi-
sions in the new document
which will provide the new po-
litical clothing the state needs,"
according to Cudlip. WILLIAM B. CUDLIP
The new constitution will notR
give all the answers for problems facing statewide education. The
University, for instance, must cooperate with industry to develop
a research complex similar to the ones surrounding college cam-
puses in California, NIew York and Massachusetts.
'U' Can Help
The University "can be helpful in developing scientific and
research projects looking toward the creation of new productsJ
for manufacture which will provide more jobs for the people ofr
the state."
The establishment of more junior and community colleges
also will help the development of higher education in the state.
Voluntary cooperation between both public and private in-
stitutions of higher learning will also help solve educational
The role of the Regent in meeting the state's educational
needs is to act as a liaison between the public and the Univer-.

Prof. Robert G. Harris of the
Law School has written Student
Government Council in reaction
to the letter from sorority lawyers
which delayed Regental considera-
tion of his proposals on member-
ship selection practices of student
Harris wrote that "I am fairly
well persuaded that counsel for
the sororities in question have
timed their moves to maximize
The Regents were expected to
consider the Harris report at their
meeting last Friday, March 22, but
postponed its consideration when
individual Regents received copies
of a brief from the Grand Rapids
law firm of Schmidt, Smith, How-
lett and Halliday.
Contested Legality
The firm contested the legality
of the Harris report and question-
ed the authority of a "transient"
student organization to set mem-
bership rules and to wtihdraw
recognition from student organiza-
tions found in violation of anti-
discrimination bylaw 2.14.
University President Harlan
Hatcher and the Regents turned
the two documents over to Dean
of the Law School Alan Smith.
Smith said yesterday that,-he ex-
pects to finish his research and
a draft of an opinion which will
resolve the arguments by the end
of this week or the beginning of
next week.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis commented
yesterday that his office does not
expect to provide copies of the
Harris report to Regents before
Dean Smith completes his opinion.
Harris says that he is "quite
confident that Dean Smith's opin-
ion will establish the legality" of
the proposals embodied in his
report. He asserted that he had
considered all the points raised
in the sorority lawyers brief were
considered before his recommen-
dations were drafted.
He also said that he was "con-
fident that the Regents will adopt
the proposal or something sub-
stantially similar."
Harris noted that he bases his
confidence "on what I believe to
be the merit of the proposal and
the fact that failure to adopt it
would leave the University utterly
berefit of policy or procedure in
this area."
Also Counsels Council
Advice to Council was also aired
in the letter, since Harris urged
SGC to "move as fast as fairness
permits." Harris said the Univer-
sity is long overdue in its search
for meaningful procedures to reg-
ulate bias in already recognized
fraternities and sororities."

He also said that "it seems clear
to me from the business of the
SGC Committee on Membership
which I have observed that the
recalcitrant group's tactic, indeed
its strategy, is that of delay."
Harris also advised Council to
begin informally drafting member-

Government Council President Thomas Brown, '63BAd (left),
Prof. Robert Harris of the Law School (right) defended his pro-
posed revision of the Regents' Bylaw for SGC. Lawyers for six
sororities have claimed that Council enforcement of anti-discrim-
ination regulations is illegal.
Ensian N ames Kramer
As Editor for Next Year
Business manager Ronald Kramer, '64, was appointed next year's
editor of the Michiganensian last night.
Kramer succeeds Linda Joel, '63, in the post.
Robert Shenkin, '65, replaces Kramer as business manager. Other

Sexton Views 'Labor Movement'

Although the term "labor move-
ment" is used freely, there has
never been a United States labor
movement in the strictest sense
of the word, Brendan Sexton, di-
rector of the Labor Studies Cen-
ter of. the United Automobile
Workers told a Voice forum last
In the United States there are
trade unions only-not the fed-
erations of unions affiliated with
other organizations such as politi-
cal parties, cooperatives or work-
ers travelling agencies which are
found in Europe, he noted.
Most of these types of federa-
tions have an identifiable ideology,
while the American trade union

movement does not, Sexton con-
tinued. "The trade unions' ideolog-
ical spectrum is so broad that it
should not even be termed ideolog-
Ideology Differences
These differences in ideology
and consequent goals of the un-
ions are due to the different areas
in which they work, the type of
union that they are (craft or in-
dustrial) and the type of employ-
er that the union deals with.
In some of the craft unions, Sex-
ton explained, there is a large
amount of shuttling between em-
ployer and employe relations due
to the employe's opportunity to
accumulate capital and establish
himself as an employer.

To Marki 'World Theatre Day'
World Theatre Day will be observed by the University Players
tonight with the opening of their production of "The. House of
Bernarda Alba," by the Spanish dramatist and poet Federico Garcia
The purpose of World Theatre Day, which is being celebrated in
about 50 countries, is to demonstrate drama's contribution to world
In a statement prepared for the observance of this occasion,
playwright Arthur Miller points out, "in a time when diplomacy and
politics have such terribly short and feeble arms, the delicate but
sometimes lengthy reach of art must bear the burden of holding to-
gether the human community.
Good Thing
"It is a good thing," he continues, "that the drama, perhaps above
all other forms of communication through art, should be the chosen
instrument. For on the stage man must act against a background of1

This situation necessitates that
the union set different goals and
establish different methods in
dealing with the employers. This
is in contrast with industrial un-
ions-such as the UAW-which
are in industries where the em-
ployer-employe relations rarely
shift, he added.
Local Affairs
In general, craft unions are us-
ually more concerned with local
affairs while the industrial union
has broader concerns such as un-
employment compensation and
pension plans. "The structure of
the union has many consequences
and one is its retarding of a co-
hesive "labor movement," Sexton
The primary goal that all un-
ions share is to secure full em-
ployment, he added.
Mre Acive c'
Sexton maintained that labor
unions have become more poli-
tically active since the New Deal.
In Michigan, for example, when
former Gov. G. Mennen Williams
was elected, Republicans sat on
the Board of Regents and the
Michigan State University Board
of Governors. Today, there are
Democrats on these and other
state bodies. The Midwest as a
whole has changed from a strictly
Republican to a mixed political

Kramer praised this year's book
and promised to expand the new
concept which guided its editing.
He called the book an artistic
and financial success. Advance
sales, he noted, were about the
same pace as last year, andkhe ex-
pects reception of the book to be
better than last year when it is
distributed May 6.
Broke Tradition
"The 1963 'Ensian broke many
traditions of the past and elim-
inated posed group pictures from
the book. It was a tremendous
experiment as it turned the boomt
into a modern, artistic yearuook~-
a publication which an alumnus
could look at 20 or 30 years from
now and accurately review the
memories and events of his college
career," Kramer declared.
He said that he plans to elim-
inate the formal colleges and
schools sections and replace it
with a more informal record. In-
stead of the usual stock oictures,
the 'Ensian will portray a more
symbolic record of the schools,
highlighting their familiar places,
such as literary college's Fishbowl.
Kramer explained.
Board Denies
Daily Request
On Regent Vote
The Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications last night de-
cided to retain a provision in The
Daily's Code of Ethics preventing
the publication of editorials which
"take stands on elections to the
Board of Regents."
No motion to alter the present
restriction was offered after the
board discussed the problem with
The Daily editors and with Stu-
dent Government Council Presi-
dent Tom Brown, '63BAd. Brown,
acting on a motion by SGC, urged
the board to remove the restric-
Brown said that he thought The
Daily "should be able to contribute
as much to the discussion of the
Regental elections as other cam-
pus groups" and that he could see
no valid arguments against lifting
the provision.
Prof. Luke K. Cooperrider of the

Staff Members
Reveal Plans
To Leave 'U'
Four professors of the depart-
ment of romance languages an-
nounced their resignations re-
The four are Professors William
C. McCrary, Edward B. Ham, Rob-
ert L. Politzer and F. Rand Mor-
"The losses are all regrettable,"
Prof. James C. O'Neill, chairman
of the romance languages depart-
ment said. "For at least three
years this department has been
under heavy attack from all parts
of the country. The situation fin-
ally caught up with us."
Faculty 'Raiding'
He explained that the demand
for language professors has re-
sulted in much "raiding" of good
departments which, in turn, has
made holding onto competent
teachers "very tough."
Prof. McCrary explained that
he had accepted an offer from
another university which he de-
scribed as a "plum." "The Univer-
sity had done everything it could"
for him, he explained, and he was
in no way dissatisfied with it.
However he did note that a
"minor reason" for his resignation
was his concern over financial sup-
port for the University from the
State Support
"Many young men of the faculty
are nervous about long-term in-
stitutional support by the state,"
Prof. O'Neill said.
"They are disturbed by the way
the budget is made," he added.
He explained that one more fac-
ulty member may resign in the
near future and that the depart-
ment hoped to "buy time" by
bringing foreign professors to the
Prof. O'Neill noted that finan-
cial, considerations were no longer
the sole factor in faculty decisions
on whether or not to remain.
He said that promotion to a
hWgher rank is now a primary bar-
gaining factor. The traditional
system of rank within a depart-
ment, based on tenure, has been
virtually "thrown out the win-
dow," he added.
