Romney Praises Legislature
Despite Failure of Wage Bill

By The Associated Press
LANSING -- Despite the re-
sounding defeat of ,the much-de-
bated minimum wage bill, a pet
project of Gov. George Romney,/
the governor yesterday termed the
current session of the state Legis-
lature "the most productive in
many, many years."
The governor, in a post-mortemn
of the climatic wrap-up of the

regular business of the Legislature,
had this to say: "We have accom-
plished la remarkable proportion
of our program in this session.
The fact that the minimum wage
bill went right down to the wire
after being written off earlier in
the session indicates it will have
an improved chance next year."
Romney said he expects to be
accused by his political foes of
having "sold out-"--by failing to
gain the minimum wage bill.
But he says he is convinced
there were elements in both par-
ties-IDemocrats as well as Re-
publicans--who contributed to the
delays that caused the controver-
sial bill to die at the passage
e dagreed with house Speaker
Allison Green (R-Kingston), who
much pressur for aresolution to
extend the deadlinie and give new
life to the wage bill could have-
in his words-"put other parts of
the program in serious jeopardy."
Resolutions of that type, Rom-
ney said, involved more than .just
one kind of legislation, and he
added that "there was evidence to
show support and opposition on
minimum wage in both parties."
No Extension
The House had killed the mini-
mum wage bill by voting down a
resolution which would have ex-
tended the deadline for passage of
as yet unresolved bills.
Romney seemed pleased by the
fact that practically all of the
legislation for which he has
fought have passed both houses
of the legislature, while those~ dif-
ferences of opinion which do exist
in certain bills are expected to be
easily reconciled before the Legis-
lature packs up and goes home for
the summer.
Among these bills are a mea-
sure to require public transport
for p arochial s col chlrn
strike benefits decision and a con-
gressional redistricting plan.
In the meantime, Senate last-
minute maneuvering did sway
with two major port development
bills, despite efforts by Sen. Ray-
mond D. Dzendzel (D-Detroit) to
resurrect them after the wr
tabled Monday night. e ee
Of these measures, one would
have lowered the percentage of
voters necessary for approval of
a port bond- issue from 60 to 51.
The other would have allowed
ports to establish "foreign trade
zones" into which foreign goods

could be brought duty-free for
processing or manufacturing and
then shipped out again.
The installation of hidden mic-
rophones in the interrogation
rooms of Ann Arbor's new city hall
came under fire yesterday from
Prof. Nicholas Kazarinoff of the
mathematics department.
Prof. Kazarinoff, vice-chairman
of the local chapter of the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union, noted
that "the ACLU will certainly look
into the matter, because we're
very apprehensive of attempts to
take evidence from an alleged
criminal when he is not entirely
aware of the circumstances."
Although there may be a legal
basis for such action, it could
constitute a grave moral wrong,
he continued.
Court Evidence
An assistant to the chief of
police noted that the person be-
ing interrogated "would probably
not be told of the microphone's
"However, we (the police depart-
ment) could not use the tapes in
a court of law," he said.
But City Attorney Jacob Fahr-
ner noted that "the tapes could
be used as court evidence without
the subject's knowledge, as long
as he were told what he said could
be used agais i.
Prof. Jerold Israel of the Law
School maintained that the use
of microphones in this manner
would not be illegal, under the
federal constitution, if the subject
Is not coerced into answering.
Prof. Israel drew a parallel be-
tween the use of microphones and
the older method of having the
interrogator take a transcript of
the answers. He noted that the
use of machines is not uncommon
in modern police departments
throughout the country.

International Team
To Observe in Laos
VIENTIANE ()P)-A truce team of the International Control Com-
mission established observation of the Plaine des Jarres on a catch as
catch can basis yesterday.
Barred from territory of the pro-Communist Pathet Lao, Cana-
dian, Polish and Indian representatives of the three-nation commission
flew by two helicopters to defense lines of Gen Kong Le's outnumbered
neutral troops to launch the field survey.
Informed sources said the foreign experts will be shuttled to and
from Vientiane daily to oversee a local cease-fire agreement that has
kept the strategic northern pla-

"All over Africa there is an
approach to living as raitional and

is," Prof. George H. T. Kimble of
Indiana University said in a lec-
ture yesterday.
"However, the outlook for Africa
warrants anxiety because there

Aproblem besetting ithe emer-
gent African nations is population
shortage. "Of the 28 countries
g aining their freedom since 1956
only four have populations as large
as that of Michigan," he said.
Tin Cup
Limited trade commodities com-
bine with "tin cup budgets" to pro-
duce a major problem for the new
nations, Kimble explained.
"The African environment has
often proven too much for man,
or man and his machines too much
for the environment. At any rate,
the cost of production and market-
ing has consistently priced African
products out of the market," he
An increasingly serious problem
on the continent is the growing
'gap lbetween the Africans' view of
their needs and their meager
ability to supply them. Kimble es-
tmated $100 as the average yearly
ucome for Africans.
Tavical Worker
"The typical African worker can
buy none of the modern conven-
iences which he is now realizig

pean wvorker. The gap between
poverty and riches for the African
is the difference between a one
acre plot with a hovel on it and
a 1000 acre plot with a mansion
on it," Kimble said.
As a result of their recent aware-
ness of possible consumer luxur-
ies, Africans are evidencing an in-
creasing tendency to "listen to
anybody who promises removal of
the inequalities they confront-~
"Thiradvisors can turn otto

Truce Team
Neutralist Premier Prince Sou-
vanna Phouma promoted the as-
signment of the truce team, saying
it could at least determine who
was doing the shooting. The neu-
tralists troops, heavily battered in
the fighting that broke out March
31, were his followers in the Lao-
tian civil war of 1960-62.
Itwas disclosed thatar Ko Le

post on the Plaine. He had moved
his headquarters last week to Mu-

How long the ICC observation
will continue is a question.
Team Flights

interview Wednesday he opposed

Souphanouvong. whose Pathet

area at Khang Khay, was quoted
as saying a cease-fire agreement

factions represented in the gov-
ernment - Conservative, Neutral

Special To The Daily
dent Hurst P. Anderson of Ameri-
can. University and the Associa-
tIon of American Colleges called
for a "grand design" fhr American
education as a three-day student
conference on federal education
opened here yesterday.
He told the Federal Aid to Edu-
cation Conference that compre-
hensive planning to replace the
"hodge-podge of ideas' that now
hinder educational progress.
Hurst's speech was the first in
the three conferences, sponsored
by the United Statse .National
Student Association and 20 other
student organizations.
"Both parties agree," Ander-
son said, "that education needs
help. The problem is, just what
kind of help and where it is to
come from."'
D'elegates noted that the United
States is the only major country
that does not now have a system
of central universities and an
overall plan for higher education.
"We must consider," Anderson
said, "how we are to expand edu-
cation as the population demands
and federal assistne a te ways
in which higher education is now
supported and noted that only
federal help can be expanded
enough to fill present needs.
Now, he said, those interested
must agree on common goals and
methods. Without the "grand de-
sign," he warned, "we are going
to move into an era of opportun-
ism in education.
Today, the second day of the
conference will feature visits by
the delegates with their Senators
and Representatives to argue for
federal aid to education, and
workshop sessions on various as-
pects of the problem.

ed by Ralph Kaplan, former chair-

Handlin Notes Seop(

"We stand at a frontier where it is necessary to remember that
education is not identical with a formal school system," Prof. Oscar
Handlin of Harvard University said in his lecture "A Look at Fron-
tier Programs in Education" yesterday.
Prof. Handlin, who is director of the Center for the Study of the
History of Liberty in America, believes that to meet challenges creat-
ed by the transition to a new environment of education, we must be
willing to experiment.
"We must realize that the process of education does not cease after
completion of formal schooling," Prof. Handlin added.
