Hairline Victory

Wire Services Confuse Final Tally;
Jubilant Democrats Add To Melee
An erroneous teletype machine, the excitement of an election
night and the jubilance of those Democrats who thought the con-
stitution was defeated combined to make Monday night one of the
most confusing of the year.
Michigan does have a new constitution, even though it will
not go into effect until Jan. 1, 1964.
The final tally was 810,180 "yes" votes over 799,420 "no" votes,
leaving a margin of 10,760. Most of the confusion stemmed from
inaccurate newswire reports, as the state's two main wire services,

Faculty Urges
Strong Stand
On ordinance
The faculty of- the literary col-
lege has urged that the Univer-
sity take a "position in favor of
a strong and fair housing ordin-
ance for Ann Arbor," in a resolu-
tion passed by the faculty with-
out a dissenting vote at their April
meeting Monday.
The resolution, introduced by
Prof. Nicholas D. Kazarinoff
of the mathematics department,
"Resolved, that the faculty of
this college believe that the Uni-
versity should take a position in
favor of a strong and fair hous-
ing ordinance for Ann Arbor which
effectively protects the civil rights
of all its residents."
Prof. Kazarinoff explained that
he was concerned with the role of
the University in getting the or-
dinance passed by City Council.
"I hope that the University takes
an active part before the Council
in obtaining an effective ordinance
for the community," he said.

ment plan for ratification by the

Meaningful Unity
The SRC chairman said yester-
day that "a viable, meaningful
unity in the governing of the Uni-
versity community" was desirable
but noted that "it takes a long
time to construct something that
is useful."
Chairman of the Senate Advi-
sory Committee on University Af-
fairs, Prof. Wilbert J. McKeachie
of the psychology department, said
in a letter to SGC that he has
"a strong personal interest in the
proposal and believes that it mer-
its serious consideration."
Also favoring the plan in "prin-
ciple" Regent C a r 1 Braeblec
(Roseville) commented that "the
idea of closer communication and
participation is reasonable" and
said "no doubt the SACUA will
respond favorably or else present
some equivalent plan."
Faculty Opposition
However, a number of faculty
members have expressed opposi-
tion to the proposal, with some
against student appointment to
Senate committees.
Prof. John W. Reed of the Law
School wrote to Council saying
that it is a "fallacy" that the af-
fairs of the University should be
'governed' by a body made up of
students and faculty."
In passage on Feb. 13 of the
student-faculty government mo-
tion recommended by its Commit-
tee on the University, Council
noted that "the ideal of a free'
inter-change of knowledge and be-
lief is essential to the effective
functioning of any educational
community," and added that "in
order for such an ideal to prosper
it is imperative that students and
faculty think of each other as
equal members in a community of
scholars, with common concerns.
and common abilities."
Council noted that "initial test-
ing steps toward a joint govern-
ment" should be taken and re-
quested that students be appoint-
ed to Senate committees.

Hatcher Says
No Housin
University P r e s i d e n t Harlan
Hatcher said yesterday that he
had just received and reviewed the
preliminary draft of the fair hous-
ing report from his three-man ad-
visory committee, but that there
"seemed to be nothing in the re-
port which would change the Uni-
versity's position, "which is to
send no testimony to the Ann
Arbor City Council."
The City Council will hold its
second public hearing on the pro-
posed fair housing ordinance from
7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. tonight in
the old City Hall.
President Hatcher indicated that
he planned to meet as soon as
possible with Professors Donald
Pelz, program director of the Sur-
vey Research Center, Samuel El-
dersveld of the political science
department and Luke K. Cooper-
rider of the Law School, the mem-
bers of the president's fair hous-
ing advisory committee, to discuss
the data and analysis contained in
their report.
As of last night, President
Hatcher did not plan to send a
University representative or any
other form of statement or testi-
mony to the public hearing.
The University did not send a
representative or testimony to the
first hearing, held on March 20.
At that time President Hatcher'
said that "if as the ordinance de-
velops, it appears that a substan-
tial number of University person-'
nel are affected, or that further
testimony on the part of the Uni-
versity is indicated, then we w ul
have a representative present."
The University has sent a letter
to Mayor Cecil O. Creal and the
City Council stating that it'
"heartily favors a fair housing.
It pointed out that the Univer-
sity does not wish to "dictate egis-
lation" to the city but that it
does wish to work with the com-j
munity, since housing problems
are "so closely linked with the
University as the residence of so1
many faculty and students of
every race." '

Fisk has combined a distin-
guished career in industrial re-
search with outstanding scientific
service to the government, accord-
ing to Dean Stephen S. Attwood of
the engineering college.
Fisk has been chairman of the
United States technical delegation
at the Geneva Nuclear Test Ban
Conference both in 1958 and 1959.
He was also director of the Divi-
sion of Research of the Atomic
Energy Commission in 1947-1948.
At the annual academic full-
dress affair, 25 outstanding Uni-

honored with distinguished
achievement awards, and 36 others
who have achieved grade averages
of 3.6 or better will be recognized.

That experiment, proposed by
Prof. Theodore. Newcomb of the
psychology and sociology depart-
ments, attempts, to link the resi-
dence hall experience with the
classroom experience. As much as
possible, students in these two
houses were put into the same
classes and house personnel were
chosen with special care.
The honors housing proposal
will allow extension of this pro-
gram, which this year only includ-
ed freshmen, into upperclassmen,
Ostafin said.
'Informal Locus'
He added that honors housing
would give honors students an "in-
formal locus" which will help them
to take fullest advantage of the
honors program.
Prof..Graf noted that the major
similarity between the Little-
Greene experiment and honors
housing is the "relationship in

Narrow Victory
Commenting on his narrow vic-
tory, Cudlip said that "I wish to
thank the people and hope to jus-
tify their confidence in me." He
indicated that it had been a "good,
hard campaign."
Cudlip emphasized the fact that
he had tied his campaign to the
support of the new constitution.
He believes that the new educa-
tion article will work to the good
of the University and expressed
surprise that the document pass-
ed by so "narrow a margin."
Regent Thurber is "awaiting the
results of the official canvass
which will be completed in the
next two weeks" before making
any decision about a recount. He
pointed out that the present vote
totals are all unofficial.
'Razor-Edge' Vote
The canvass checks the accur-
acy of each precinct's totals. "In

Other Boards
The election of members to the
other university governing boards
was also altered after the late
morning returns. One Democrat'
and one Republican was elected to
each. Republican Stephen S. Nis-
bet passed up his Democratic op-
ponent Jan Vanderploeg to se-
cure a seat on Michigan State'
University's governing board. Dem-
ocrat Donald Stevens retained his
early lead to win the other open
seat. The final vote totals were Nis-f

Publican Arthur K. Rouse, 785,-1

Republican Alfred H. Whittakert
unseated his incumbent Democrat-

Election day turned out to be a

race for positions on the univer-
sity governing boards. The onlyr

Ross Discusses Need for New Politics


"If every group in society were
to politically express its demands
on society and government and if
every poor person and Negro could
express his demands certain func-

"It is important to determine
what our politics are as opposed
to what our programs are," Ross
stressed. Sociologist C. Wright
Mills told us to be and to create
publics and to hold the elite's re-
