quiet reigned in Birmingham yes-
terday as Negro leaders mapped
plans for a voter-registration drive
on the heels of a truce in the ra-
cial crisis.
Behind the scenes, Negroes said
they were moving from house to

ward voter registration.
Despite settlement-on the sur-
face-of issues in this city's six-
week racial crisis, more than 500

New Violence
Violence flared last night as two
persons were injured when a bomb

At least two other explosions
occurred in a Negro residential

committee had originally planned.
Although Hinsdale's staff "next
year will include only graduate
students, they need not all be in
the literary college.
Cooperative Courses
In addition, "we hope to have
cooperative courses - a m a t h
course for both engineering stu-
dents and literary college people,
for instance. The committee is
trying to set this up and is con-
sulting with the engineering col-
lege," Hinsdale president Gerald
L. Solensky, '65A&D, said.
"We feel this compromise will.

students and still retain diversifi-

forward in cooperation between
students and the administration,"
Solensky said. He added that HinĀ§-
dale is "very grateful" to the ad-
ministration and the members of
the ad hoc committee for "their
cooperation and understanding."
As for Hinsdale's fear that the
project would destroy its "engi-
neering tradition," Solensky ex-
plained that "we now feel it will
retain our engineering tradition
and build up a literary college
tradition. By integrating them we
can build complete loyalty- to the

"We are following Romney's
views to get Michigan moving by
setting up a local educational in-
stitution financed by private
funds," he commented.
However, plans are still tenta-
tive and await further information
from Romney and the "blue-rib-

Although Delta College would
be privately supported if it be-
came a private local institution,
"we would not wish to make it

Former Bills Failed
Two plans to make Delta Col-
lege a --four-year degree-granting
institution failed this year. One
bill, establishing a state-supported
senior college in the Delta area
was defeated in the Legislature.
The other proposal was to es-
tablish a University branch at
Delta. However, after RomneyI
noted a desire to await the "blue
ribbon" committee's report on
higher education, the bill was'
withdrawn in the Legislature.
The new proposal does not envi-
sion any type of participation by
,the University.
Marble foresees some type of
report from the "blue ribbon"
committee by next fall. However,
he refused to say whether or not
Delta College would seek a charter
before that time.

Syria, Iraq

DAMASCUS OP) - Controlling
revolutionary commands yester-
day overhauled the governments of
Syria and Iraq-two members of
Egyptian President Gamal Abdel
Nasser's planned Arab federation.
The two nations agreed to unite
with Nasser's Egypt after succes-
sive revolutions in February and
March. But a week-old Syrian po-
litical crisis threatened to upset
the union.
A Baghdad announcement of the
Iraqi shakeup gave no hint that
the threat had deepened in that
country. It said Iraq was going
forward for Arab unity.

ing in Syria, the National Revo-
lutionary Council accepted, the

In his resignation letter, Bakr
said "Iraq is approaching an era

basis and a new government that
can adapt itself to this new stage."

Optical Astronomy
(First of a Series)
With the fantastic growth of radio astronomy since World
War II, its observations of heavenly bodies formerly unknown
to optical telescopes and its penetrations of some of the
mysteries posed by the universe, optical astronomy has been
pushed into the background-at least in the public's eye.
And this branch of the oldest of the sciences may also
be getting the poor man's share of the funds it feels it needs
to make progress.
Prof. Lawrence H. Aller, now at the University of California
at Los Angeles, who left the University's astronomy department
last spring after being here since 1948, raised this point in the
January issue oScee, th
wveekly journal of the American ~
Association for the Advance- ~
ment of Science, '"'.
'Dust of Obsolescence' i S
"The opening of a new win- .
dow in the electromagnetic
spectrum (radio astronomy)
does not mean that we should
close one of the old ones (op-
tical astronomy), or allow it to
sblacken up with the dut ofl
obsolescence," he says. Amnongf
his main points are the need
for more ground-based optical
telescopes-bigger, better and
up-to-date. .
At the Kitt Peak Nationala
Observatory in Arizona, there
are telescopes available or un-
der construction which staff RADIO TELESCOPE
and students of many schools .rich man's share
can use up to 60 per cent of
the time. "It could just about handle the optical stellar needs
of two or possibly three good graduate schools in astronomy,"
Prof. Aller says.
Prof. Orren C. Mohler, chairman of the astronomy depart-
ment says that "newness of equipment isn't important to us;
it has to be appropriate. This Isn't the same thing as the
need for big light-gathering equipment which Prof. Aller says
is needed. He is talking about experiments that interest him
and that are important to him.
Men, Equipment, Time
"There are thousands of problems in astronomy that need
to be solved and'each of them needs its own equipment. You
need the proper instrument for the problem, the right men,
equipment and time,"..Prof. Mohler points out.
S In his article, Prof. Aller points out that "the need for
capital investment In optical astronomy cannot be'met at the
local-university level; every college is pushed to the limits
of its resources to provide buildings and staff to handle ever-
growing numbers of students.
"Substantial support should be given to an agency such
as the National Science Foundation so that worthwhile projects
requiring capital investments can be supported on their own
merits."t .a

May Im1peril
Income Tax
Romney Declares
Increasing Revenues
Still May Fall Short
Gov. George Romney announced
yesterday that Michigan will have
an estimated $40.5 million general
fund surplus at the close of the
1962-63 fiscal year June 30.
,This is $7.5 million greater than
the $33 million surplus Romney
predicted in his budget message
to the Legislature Jan. 30.
However, Romney said the reve-
nue from tax collections is in-
creasing, but not as rapidly as the
revenue required to meet the de-
mands of a growing population.
Still Need Session
This revised surplus increase
does not decrease the need for a
special session of the Legislature
next fall to overhaul Michigan's
tax structure.
Sen. Raymond' D. Dzendzel (D-
Detroit) speculated that Romney
"may be trying to evade fiscal-
reform legislation by placing in
the eyes of Michigan a rosy fi-
nancial picture."
Dzendzel added that Democrats
will vote against any state in-
come tax without "complete fis-
cal reform" next fall.
Complete fiscal reform must in-
clude the removal of food and
medicine from the sales tax and
the elimination of many nuisance
taxes, Dzendzel added.
Fiscal Reform Problems
Sen. Stanley G. Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) said yesterday Romney's
expected fiscal reform next fall
will run into difficulties because
of the surplus.
"With two good back-to-back
auto years, it will be difficult to
get a state income tax through the
Legislature because we're not on
a lean year," Thayer said.
However, Michigan 'cannot al-,
ways depend onhhigh automobile
sales and must adopt a much
healthier tax structure, he added.
News of the surplus reached
Romney in a memorandum from
state controller Glenn Allen. Allen
said the increase is a result of
higher tax collections.
Romney warned that even if the
entire surplus were applied to the
state deficit it would still leave the
general fund with a deficit of $45.1
million on June 30.
Romney also indicated he was
opposed to establishment of a
state lottery to raise state funds.
"I don't think a sound economy
is built on. gambling which in-
cludes lotteries," he said.
Rep. Edwin A. Fitzpatrick (D-
Detroit) had said he would ask
Romney to back a renewal of his
perennial efforts to set up such
a lottery.
As a result of the New Hamp-
shire legislature's approval of a
state sweepstakes in ' financing
their government, lottery advo-
cates in the Legislature here have
found a new impetus in their ar-
Immediately after the New
Hampshire decision, Sen. John T.
Bowman (D-Roseville) announced
he would ask the Legislature to
make a study of lottery proposals.
