Pro-Nasser Coup Overthrows Iraqi

REVOLT IN IRAQ--Rebel forces from Habbaniya are reported to
have led the revolt which crushed the regime of Abdel Karim Kas-

Grassmuck Sees Revolution'
As 'Mere Change in nPalace'
The Iraqi revolution which erupted yesterday was interpreted by
Prof. George Grassmuck of the political science department as "prob-
ably a mere change in the palace."
He predicted that the opening of fire would hardly resolve the
conflicts between Baghdad and Cairo because "Iraq has oil and Egypt
does not.
"There has been a persistent historical conflict between Iraq
and the Arab world. There is no reason to assume that the bitterness

ITAL. Recognizes
New Government
By The Associated Press
BEIRUT-Iraq's Premier Abdel
Karim Kassem was reported over-
thrown and assassinated yesterday
by the same coterie of young army
officers who helped him destroy
the Iraqi monarchy and rise to
power four and one-half years
The coup was regarded as a
triumph for the Nasserites of the
Arab world.
The rebels announced they had
crushed Kassem's rule with tanks
and planes and "destroyed the
tyrant." The Cairo-headquartered
Middle East News Agency said
there was no doubt about Kassem's
Transitional President
The insurgents ordered a crack-
down on Communists and named
the pro-Nasser former co-leader of1
Kassem's own revolution to serve
as transitional president.
United Arab Republic PresidentS
Gamal Abdel Nasser, arch enemy
and rival of Kassem, hailed the
Iraqi coup as a victory for the1
"Arab struggle." Nasser's bid fors
Middle East supremacy, bolsteredi
by the Cairo-oriented Yemen re-
volt last fall, was seen on the
rise again.
The UAR, it Yemen satellite
and Algeria-three revolutionary
governments-quickly recognized
the new Iraqi regime. Kuwait also
extended recognition with the ob-
vious hope that Kassem's claim to
that oil-rich neighboring sheikdom1
now was buried and forgotten.
Established Supremacy 1
However, Iraq's borders weret
sealed amid indications thatbthe
revolutionaries had not establish-
ed supremacy throughout the
Middle East nation. ;
Abdel Salam Mohammed Aref,
once Kassem's deputy premier and
later his prispner for a reported
assassination attempt, was ap-

In Washington, the state depart-

As of late yesterday, the United
States government had no firm1
news of whether Kassem was'kill-1

Baghdad Radio.

WSU Seeks
State Money
For Centers
Desires To Receive
Research Largesse
Wayne State University Thurs-
day became the first state-sup-
ported institution to submit a
proposal for tapping Gov. George
Romney's proposed $750,000 fund
to sponsor research on pepping up
Michigan industrial development.
WSU proposed a three-year, $2
million "crash program" to es-
tablish space physics, mechanics
and medicine research centers. The
cost of the first year operation
would be $525,000.
The initial investment would
set up an institute for biological
systems and engineering and an
institute for surface studies.
Extension Scheme
The fruits of the research would
be passed on to state industries
through an "industrial extension
The proposal was presented to
the House Economic Development
Committee Thursday. Rep. Gilbert
Bursley (R-Ann Arbor), its chair-
man, praised WSU for the speed
and quality of its proposal.
However, the University has not
given any consideration to asking
money from the fund yet, Vice-
President for Research Ralph A.
Sawyer reported.
Still Nebulous
"The proposal is a little 'iffy'
yet. If the money is available the
University will ask for things it
considers desirable and which do
not get federal support," he said.
Sawyer said University partici-
pation in the fund will also de-
pend on the nature of the fund
and its operating provisions.
The fund, details of which are
expected to be spelled out by
Romney in an economic expansion
message Monday or Tuesday, will
be managed by the newly-created
Economic Expansion Council. This
group of 25 citizens from various
facets of state life will oversee the
spurring of state development,
Bursley explained.
He speculated that a subcom-
mittee composed of scientists as
well as laymen will specifically
consider requests.





Delta-U' Discussions C

Discussions of the possibilities of
incorporating Delta College as a
University branch are continuing,
despite lack of support in this
year's Legislature for such a mer-
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Roger W. Heyns explained
that since the Delta-branch idea
is only in the talking stage, the
question of whether or not this
year's session would endorse the
plan "is not significant."
The aim of the present Univer-
sity-Delta negotiations is "to work
out an educational plan involving
the cooperation of Delta and the
University," which would also be
acceptable to the various groups
These groups include the gov-
erning boards of the two institu-
tions, the Legislature, and the res-
idents of Michigan's thumb area
where Delta is located.

Last week, President John A.

Both presidents are basing their

LANSING-Gov. George Rom-

scribed as a "workable proposal"
to enact legislation on the state
Supreme Court's controversial
Ford-Canton decision.

ble for unemployment benefits who

music over the national radio as

"when Kassem came into power,
Egyptian music was played also."
Iraqi students on campus con-
sidered the revolutionary effort
more serious, and feared wide-
scale violence and bloodshed.
"I am against all forms of
change in Iraq if they are in-
stituted by violence. But, if my

be adopted if the Legislature op-

Educators Fail To Resolve
Differences on Federal Aid
WASHINGTON W-)-Representatives of 21 national educational
groups met behind locked doors yesterday in an effort to resolve their
differences on federal aid to education.
A reliable source said they failed to reach any agreement.

groups issued a joint statement which said only that they had

Limon Calls Modern Dance 'A


Jose Limon prefers to speak of modern dance as the American
The renowned dancer-choreographer, who will perform with his
company at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill Aud., said that what he and his:
company do is done as 20th Century American dance and is some-
thing with which they are still experimenting.
Limon believes that modern dance has taken root in America
because, unlike Europe, which had developed the traditional ballet
from Italian peasant dances, and refined it in France and Russia,
"America was a raw land with no tradition."
Modernist Idea;
An American, Isadore Duncan, instigated the modern dance . " ;:
movement at the beginning of the century. The modernist idea was
carried on by Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey and Charles Weide--
When Isadore Duncan first performed in Chicago and New York ,
she was ignored, so she went to Paris. Dancing to Beethoven and
Chopin with unconventional technique and costume, she "brought
Greece back to life and although Paris was shocked, it went wild over f'
her dancing," Limon said.
She rejected ballet completely; some hated her, claiming that it
was not dancing, but the performance of a naked woman with no
technique, Limon said.
Ballet Now Friend

The major point at issue con-
cerns federal aid to private and
parochial schools and colleges.
One source said the meeting be-
gan with a representative of each
group outlining his organization's
position. Then President Charles
E. Odegaard of the University of
Washington, chairman of the
meeting, made a plea for some
easing of differences.
The rest of the time was spent
in.discussing the various positions,
with no yielding on any side.

NEA Against
The meeting was called by the
National Education Association
and the American Council on Ed-
ucation. These organizations were
at sword's points last year after
the NEA sent telegrams to every
member of the House of Repre-
sentatives, saying that proposed
federal grants to private colleges
would violate the American tradi-
tion of separation of church and
The House, shortly afterward,
killed a proposed bill which would
have provided federal grants and
loans to both public and private
