SACUA To Allow
SGC Participants
McKeachie Explains Advisory Role
Of Students in Faculty Government
Chairmen of the subcommittees of the Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs now have the authority to allow students
delegated by Student Government Council to participate in commit-
tee meetings.
At its last meeting of the year, SACUA unanimously approved
the proposal.
"Senate committees are essentially problem-solving groups at-
tempting to find the best solutions to the major problems facing the

Seventy-Two Years of Editorial Freedom

Ackley Asks,
Lower Tax
On Incomes
Reduction of tax rates is the
greatest contribution which the
federal government can make to-
wards building a more dynamic
economy, Gardner Ackley, a mem-
ber of the President's Council of
Economic Advisors, said yesterday.
Speaking on "T h e Federal
Budget and a Dynamic Economy,"
Ackley, former chairman of the
University's economics depart-
ment, discussed the Kennedy ad-
ministration's encouragement of
private investment as a means of
economic growth.

... tax cut
He said the administration has
promoted investment by proposed
alterations in both corporation and
private taxes. With the passage
of the 1962 Revenue Act, business
taxes were reduced by 10 per cent.
Proposed reforms include reduc-
tion in top-bracket income tax
rates, Ackley added.
Taxes "reduce purchasing pow-'
er and thus limit total demand,"
because the basic resources of
manpower and equipment are not
being fully used because of lack
of demand, he noted.
Reduction of corporate tax rates
and "penalty rates" at the high
end of the income-tax scale will
make investment more attractive.
Investment, in turn, will speed
growth of potential resources as
well as improve existing nroductive
resources, Ackley noted,
Federal deficits of recent years
have resulted from unemployment,
but higher taxes and lower federal
spending would not have avoided
them. Ackley asserted that gov-
ernment expenditures on research
and education directly contribute
to increases in production.
The government can influence
total demand through purchases
of goods, he commented. This in-
creases the individual's purchas-
ing power with social insurance,
relief payments and subsidies, as
well as lowered tax rates.

Keachie, chairman of both the
psychology department and
SACUA, said last night.
Students Contribute
"Student participation is not so
much a question of students gain-
ing power as of opportunity for
students to contribute to the prob-
lem-solving process.
"SACUA committees usually do
not take formal votes on issues but
rather try to arrive at some form
of consensus," he said.
"Faculty members are concerned
about the general problem of de-
veloping student responsibility as
citizens. We hope that the stu-.
dents will not feel that they have
solved this problem simply by par-
ticipation of a small number of
students in these committees," he
SGC Study
"We would hope that SGC would
continue to study the problem of
the relationship of the student1
representatives to the larger stu-
dent body, in the hope that a
large proportion of students wouldt
become informed and responsible;
citizens of the University com-
munity," Prof. McKeachie said.
SACUA also picked nine nom--t
inees for the SACUA Committee

the department's note stated.
"What the Soviets are proposing
is that we eliminate our seaborne
nuclear capacity in the Mediter-

most effective counters to repeated
Soviet threats to use their own
nuclear weapons against members
of the NATO alliance.
"Neither the Soviet Union nor,

Assembly has defined its posi-
tion as lying somewhere between
the individual independent woman
student and the Office of Student
Affairs. The proposed Definition
of Authority recognizes the flow
of power from Vice-President
Lewis to the Assembly Association
to the individual house councils,
to the independent women. The
flow of representation is in the
opposite direction.
Lewis was in complete agree-
ment with the provision that he
approve or veto proposed legisla-
tion within two weeks. Under the
measure, if he does not act with-
in that time, the said legislation
becomes official Assembly policy
This measure was the major
change from present policy con-
tained in the Definition.
Miss Hager had said earlier that
a two-week time limit "would
better define the relationship be-
tween the vice-president and As-
sembly and would facilitate imple-
menting any legislation passed."
The measure which proved to be
the most controversial at a recent
AHC meeting was the provision
that powers not specifically dele-
gated to the individual houses
would be the responsibility of the
Assembly Association. Miss Hager
explained that in order for the

Farm Vote
Kills Plan
tion's wheat farmers yesterday re-
jected a new and tighter federal
production control plan for their
With results from 43 states par-
tially or completely tabulated, only
46 per cent of the voters favored
'the program. It needed a 66.7 per
cent favorable vote for adoption.
The vote was 415,357 for the plan,
483,696 against.
It was the first time in 13 ref-
erenda that wheat growers had
rejected a production-control plan.
The plan had been advanced by
the Kennedy administration as a
measure to halt overproduction
and to stabilize prices.
The defeat carried implications
far beyond the wheat crop. Vic-
torious opponents had called for
the plan's defeat as a means of
heading off possible controls on
livestock, milk, poultry and crops
not now subject to restrictions.
President John F. Kennedy,
while urging approval of his wheat
proposal, had said the referendum
would be a test of his farm sup-
ply control policies.
The only part of the country
which gave the plan a top-heavy
vote was the Southeast-an area
which grows relatively little wheat
but which has become accustomed
to tight controls on cotton, to-'
bacco and peanuts.
The referendum outcome was a
personal defeat for Agriculture
Secretary Orville L. Freeman, who
had said defeat would bring chaos
to wheat growers. Likewise, the
results raise the prestige of the
American Farm Bureau Federation
and its president, Charles B.
Shuman, who opposed the plan.
Aides said Freeman would have
no comment on the outcome to-
Shuman issued a statement
from his Farm Bureau headquar-
ters which stated the results were
"a clear indication that farmers
favor a change in the" direction of
national farm policy."
"This is a bright day for agri-
culture," Shuman said.

Accept Idea
Of Forming
Co-ed Center
Await Union Action;
Question Some Parts
Of Committee Plan
The Michigan League Board of
Directors has accepted-with some
changes and comments-the final
report of the Union-League Study
Committee recommending that the
Women's League and the Michigan
Union merge to form a co-educa-
tional University Center.
Board members also decided to
seek Regental approval of the re-
port before the implementation
committee is formed. Also, how-
ever,' it must be accepted by the
Michigan Union Board of Gover-
nors, which will consider the ques-
tion at its meeting tomorrow.
The Office of Student Affairs
also will submit a report on it
after studying' the Robeitson Re-
port, which proposes the merger.
Four Alumni
According to the proposed plan,
four alumni would be included on
the University Center Board of
Directors, but the proportion of
men and women is not specified.
The League Board alumnae asked
to change the report to give the
women equal representation on the
new Board of Directors.
The rationale given was that
alumnae, although smaller in
number and amount of funds
brought in than alumni, "have
more constant care and everyday
concern" and in general are hard-
er workers.
They also asserted that an or-
ganization is run better with wo-
men's aid, and cited the shaky
financial status of the Union as
compared to the more prosperous
Four Students
Similarly, the report provides
that students have four represen-
tatives on the Board, but sexes
are not specified. However, the
women students on the League
Board did not find it necessary to
insure that some of these represen-
tatives be women. Although it was
brought up that women must be
on the Board if the organization is
to be truly co-educational, League
' President Gretchen Groth, '64, em-
phasized that if the new organiza-
tion is a fresh one rather than
merely an amalgamation of men's
and women's organizations, all the
members of the Board will repre-
sent the student body as a whole
and not one sex or the other. She
showed nd concern that women
students would be overlooked but
expressed the hope that women
have an equal opportunity to reach
the top on merit.
Three Non-Students
The Board also questioned the
part on the faculty and alumnae
members of the League Board,
which requires that three non-
students sit with the four student
members of the selections com-
mittee, which would choose of-
ficers for the Student Activities
Committee of the new Center.
Some women thought that, since
the Student Activities Committee
was set up to be independent of
