In outlining a new seven-point
program to "spur the development
of Michigan's great economic po-
tential," Gov. John B. Swainson
yesterday called for expansion of
the University's Institute of Sci-
ence and Technology as a center
for giving impetus to "growth"
industries which thrive on scien-
tific research.
In his message to the Iegisla-
ture, Swainson also proposed the
establishment of a Greater Michi-
gan. Authority which would make

loans to local or regional industrial
development groups such as the
commission behind the Ann Arbor
Research Park. He requested an
initial $1.5 million appropriation

The authority would loan up to
30 per cent of the cost of projects
"in critical economic areas" and
would provide up to 20 per cent of'
costs in other areas.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill.--To no one's
surprise, Michigan seems well on
its way to winning its third con-
secutive Big Ten, indoor track
championship here today.'
Last night the Wolverines domi-
nated the preliminaries by quali-
fying a 'resounding 12 track men'
for today's semi-finals and finals.
Runner-up so far is Indiana
with eight qualifiers, followed by
Iowa and Purdue with five, Michi-
gan State, Minnesota and North-
western with four, Wisconsin with
two, and a surprisingly poor 1ii-
nois with one.
Deceptive Figures
These figures are somewhat de-
ceptive, however, as there are no
preliminaries in -two of Michigan's
.strongest events-the 60-yard dash
and the mile run.
One final event was held last
night. That was the broad jump,
which was won by Illinois' defend-
ing champion, Paul Foreman, with
a leap of 24'11". It was his best
effort' of the year, and came at an
opportune time, as three other
jumpers -- including Michigan's
Les Bird-also turned in their best
jumps of the year.
Bird, limping slightly because of
a chronic sore leg, gritted his
teeth for the big effort, and soared
24'3/2", good for second place. It
marked a gallant comeback for
the lithe senior, who two years ago
set a Michigan indoor record of
24'101", but had failed to near
that mark again until last night.
Akpata Third.
Sonny Akpata of Michigan State
was third with a leap of 241/"
and Reryck Taylor of Illinois was
fourth with 24'1/4" in a close fin-

Michigan State, 88.
Still in Doubt
However, both Michigan Coach
Newt Loken and Illinois Coach
Charlie Pond stress that the meet
is far from decided. The perform-
ers' official score in each event
will be the -average of their scores
in the qualifying and final ses-
sions, and in most cases, there is
a separation of less than 10 points

team totals.

Stirs Enthusiam
George Hill, temporary chair-
man of the party, said that the
meeting "was intended to stir up
student enthusiasms on the cam-
pus-something that has not been
done at WSU for a long time," and
that he was satisfied with its suc-
Both students and faculty mem-
bers present at the rally signed
up as members of the new or-
ganization, Hill said. He cited the
issue of the political club recog-
nition "only a catalyst for the
formation of the new group."
However, he said, most of the
questions raised by the audience
at the organizational meeting were
on this issue.
Clubs Suspended
The three campus political clubs
had their recognition suspended by
their supervisory committee last
week, and one of them has been
denied the chance to regain its
status because of non-fulfillment
of 1954 deans' council regulations
for such clubs.
Hill said that the major aims of
the new party were to work for
"academic freedom and respon-
sible student government, neither
of which is present as it should
be on the campus."
Seek Recognition
The party group announced that
it would seek university recogni-
tion in the near future, and in-
tended to run candidates for SFC.
On-campus politica action
groups concerned with university
issues do not come under the poli-
tical club supervisory committee,
and the new group would presum-
versy over the suspensions.

Senate Votes
To Authorize
New Judges
ate yesterday voted to authorize
73 new federal judges-the biggest
single addition ever proposed in
the federal judiciary.
"These are choice political
plums," Sen. Everett M. Dirksen,
(R-Ill), who led a losing Repub-
lican fight to delay action on the
measure, said.
Dirksen told the Senate the in-
itial cost of creating a new dis-
trict judgeship, including expenses
for the first year, is $90,000. The
first year cost of adding a judge
to the Federal Circuit Court of
Appeals, he said, is $72,600.
