Udall Airs Warning
On Wasted Riches,
The abundance of America's natural endowments "has allowed
us to sin against nature without paying for our transgressions"--
but this will not be true for long, Secretary of the Interior Stewart
Udall warned last night.
Speaking at the National Conference on Outdoor Recreation
Research, Udall said that expanding technology is causing "a grow-
ing imbalance between the works of man and the works of nature."
Despite greater opportunities to control our environment, "the
evidence does not indicate we're better-prepared to inherit the
(earth. We've acquired the weak-

nesses of an indoor nation," and
the landscape is becoming an
"ugly America," he asserted.
Luxuries Now Necessities
Udall noted that the products
of human technology, which once
had been luxuries, are now "neces-
sities,"and the natural assets
which technology is destroying are
coming to be the luxuries of life.
He expressed concern that access
to natural areas is becoming the
exclusive privilege of, the well-to-
Udall went on to outline his de-
partment's activities in the out-
door recreation field.
He cited two projects involving
the University.
First, Udall announced that a
field office of the Bureau of Out-
door Recreation will be located
Killers Killed
Second, he pointed out success-
es in the program to destroy fish-
killing sea lampreys in the Great
Lakes. An 85 per cent reduction in
the number of lampreys has been
achieved by the regional office of
the Bureau of Commercial Fisher-
ies, located on the University cam-
pus, in cooperation with Canada.
Udail went on to note several
areas in the country which his de-
partment is asking Congress to
set aside for recreational pur-
poses. In Michigan, the Sleeping

Heyls Views

Vice-Presidents View
Year's Adjustments
Acting City Editor
In February 1962 the Regents decided that the administra-
tion of academic affairs at the University had become too big
for one man to handle.
So they split up Marvin L. Niehuss's position of vice-
president and dean of faculties into two new jobs: executive
vice-president, filled by Niehuss, and vice-president for aca-
demic affairs, filled by the then-Dean Roger W. Heyns of the>
literary college. -
Their first 15 months in these posts have seen Niehuss
striving to take some of the administrative load off University
President Harlan Hatcher's hands, while Heyns has been
experiencing "a lot of just plain learning what the job is"
as he works to maintain quality of faculty and curricula here.
Ceremonial Functions
Niehuss handles most of the University's relations with
the state and federal government, helps out with some of
the ceremonial functions and serves as acting President when-
ever President Hatcher is out of town.
Although the Legislature is currently not in session, Nie-
huss still has plenty to do with state government, studying
gray areas of the new state constitution and acting as liaison<
with Gov. George Romney's "blue-ribbon" committee on higher
r education.
There are a number of provisions in the new document
which may or may not affect the University:
-How far does the power of the State Board of Education
extend in 'coordinating' the budget requests of Michigan
' . --Could the governor reduce the amount of money com-
' ing to the University in case overall state revenues do not$
« meet budgeted expenditures?
-How much could the auditor general become involved
in University problems in performing post-audits of how statef
agencies spend state money?
New Document
-Will residence standards in the new document affect the
University's definition of an out-of-state student?
-And what would be the legal relationship between the<
University and the proposed Civil Rights Commission, whichg
would have subpoena powers in investigating alleged discrim-
inatory treatment of minority groups?
As for the blue-ribbon committee, Niehuss on request will
supply it with figures and interpretations of University policy,
as the group probes the present and future needs of the state s
system of higher education.
He also keeps in touch with developments in Washington,
working closely with Rep. George Meader (R-Mich) of Ann.
Arbor and other Congressmen who may be involved in legis-?
lation affecting education in general and the University in
Niehuss emphasizes, however, that the University's rela-
tionship in this area is a "varied" one: in other words, a
number of officials here will have close relations with Wash-
ington instead of having such communication channelled
through one University office.
Vice-President for Research Ralph A. Sawyer, for instance,
observes Congressional activity on bills involving research, and
Medical School personnel do the same on legislation concern-
ing health and medical aid.x
The administration has considered having a full-time rep-r
resentative in Washington, as is done by several other univer-
However, "we haven't quite found the proper person for
the job," and so far communication "has been more effective
having many people here with close relations with the federal
government," Niehuss says.
Along with President Hatcher, he also oversees the Uni-
versity's connections with the Michigan Coordinating Council
for Public Higher Education.f
Performing these duties and some of the internal admin-
istrative tasks Niehuss believes, has helped to relieve the
"tremendous demands" on the time of President Hatcher,

special To The Daily
SAVANNAH-There were con-
flicting reports yesterday as to just
why a Negro professor has been
fired from his post at Savannah
State College.
Mass student withdrawals at the
all-Negro school have followed the
failure of the college administra-
tion to renew the contract of Prof.
Cleveland Christophe, head of the
school's department of economics.
Applications Pending
The college reported that 340
students have already withdrawn,
and a representative for the stu-
dents claimed that 500 more appli-
cations for withdrawal are pend-
According to a college spokes-
man, Christophe's contract was
not renewed because "he was not
able to prove himself during his
probationary period."
Four Degrees
Students claimed, however, that
he was one of the most able mem-
bers of the faculty. Christophe
held four degrees in economics.
According to students, Chris-
tophe was fired for attempting to
integrate the college and for pro-
testing an administration ruling
not to allowa debate between Sa-
vannah and an all-white team
from Harvard. Christophe had
been sponsor of the debate team.
White Airmen
It is reported that Christophe
had invited white airmen from
nearby Hunter Air Force Base to
join his classes.
The c o 11 e g e representative
charged that there was no race
issue, but that one had been in-
jected into it by community peo-
ple attempting to inflame the sit-
More than 5000 Savannah resi-
dents have signed a petition sup-
porting Christophe and calling for
his re-instatement.
Two student members of the de-
bate team have also been expelled
for their participation in the dem-
onstration. They are Robert Hill
and James Brown, Jr. The college
claimed that the two were expelled
for "giving out false and erron-
eous information and criticizing
the administration without justi-
'Big Lie'
The college spokesman also ac-
cused the NAACP of using the
"big lie" to inflame the issue. He
said Christophe is "not being fed
to the state of Georgia." The
NAACP is supporting Christophe
and the two expelled students.
In addition, the college repre-
sentative stated that "there is no
segregation at the present time in
any one of our (state) universities
in Georgia." Commented one stu-
dent, "I don't see how he could
figure that."

In an evening radio-television
address to the nation, Bosch put
no deadline on demands.
In Washington the State De-

Ross Views Student Unity as 'Unlikely'
International student unity is a goal unlikely to be realized,
Robert Ross, '63, said at an International Student Seminar yesterday.
Speaking on "International Student Politics: Present and
Future " Ross noted that the last International Student Conference
had witnessed a walk-out by 21 of the neutral nations present
on an "obscure" issue.
In addition, the ISC, dominated by the United States National'
Student Association and the International Union of Students, a
Communist dominated group, have made and intend to make no
sincere efforts to reconcile their differences, according to Ross.
Neutral Nations
Claus Matson, a former vice-president of the National Union
of Danish Students, explained that the walk-out was an expected
development caused by the unwillingness of ISC to "consider issues
-..= relevant" to the developing neutral nations.
He said that the membership of ISC had greatly diversified
since its inception in 1950. The addition of many developing nations,
who brought much more potent political issues than those the United
States and Western Eurnnan nations had been discussing, has

sidered by the University to be
quid pro quo for relieving the

nual expense of educating some
