Plan Allows
Class Work.
At Both U's
Expect Consideration
At Regents' Meeting
Wayne State University Board
of Governors yesterday approved
a plan to allow students there and
at the University to tale courses
for credit at either institution.
The proposal is expected to be
considered by the Board of Re-
gents at their meeting tomorrow.
If approved, the plan would go
into effect neit fall.
Under the plan, students from
either. university could. attend a
limited number of classes at the
other institution, after securing
approval from the dean or depart-
ment head of their respective
schools or colleges. .
Full Utility ;
"The plan was designed to in-
sure the fullest utilization of the.
combined education resources, es-
pecially in graduate, professional
and highly specialized areas,"
WSU President Clarence B. Hil-
berry said.
University President Harlan
Hatcher explained that represen-
tatives from both universities have
met for some time to plan the pro-
"We have, I believe, developed a
plan satisfactory to both Univer-
sities," Hatcher said.
Pay Tuition
Winfred A. Harbison, WSU vice-
president for' academic adminis-
tration explained that under the
plan, students would pay tuition
at their home university, and ad-
justments for differences in tuition
would be made between the two
SAlthough WSU does not have as
many graduate students, he said,
as it still offers courses "across
the board."
"The program would save money
in both schools, because, they
would not have to offer the same
advanced courses. "
Harbison cited the proposal as
"more limited, but perhaps m~ore
realistic" than the merger between
the two institutions proposed by
WSU in 1958.
Combined Operations
The University and WSU have
combined other operations includ-
ing a joint institute of labor and
industrial relations,. a division of
adult education, an institution for
continuing legal education, and
joint use of facilities at the Wayne
County General Hospital and In-
Regent Eugene B. Power pointed
out that "this is another example
of how, two institutions working
together with mutual confidence
and trust can better serve students
and the state."
"Since the matter will not come
before the Regents until Friday, I
cannot speak for the entire Board,
but personally I'm in favor of the
plan," Power said.
Harbison said "other institutions
could implement the plan but on
a more limited basis, because their
graduate and advanced schools
are not as large."
Shafer Quits
Council Post
Dennis Shafer, '63, resigned from
Student Government Council last
In a letter of resignation read
at SGC last night, Shafer said his
decision was necessitated by in-
creased academic responsibilities.

He noted that the Council was
steadily becoming a political body
and he expressed the hope that
SGC would soon show an increas-
ing concern for University affairs.
He also said the Council must
conduct Itself in a way that will

Feldkarp Asks Revision
Of Council Administration
Student Government Council President John Peldkamp, '61, out-
lined his proposals for revision of the administrative wing of SGC in
his closing remarks to the Council last night.
His suggestion, not yet in the form of a motion, would establish
,five major committees to streamline procedures: a committee on the
University, an activities committee, a student organizations committee,

>an operations committee, and a
student concerns committee.
Revise Rush
Earlier in the meeting, SGC
calendared a reyised schedule for
1962 women's rush, placing the
mixer set of parties the weekend
before second semester classes be-
gin. The new timing eliminates
week-night rush parties for two
out of the three weeks of rush.
The Council also moved unani-
mously to obtain the movie "Oper-
ation Abolition" for campus pres-
entation as soon as possible. It will
be shown along with a "rebuttal"
of equal length, probably next
Film Condemned
Last week the Council passed a
resolution condemning the film,
produced and distributed by the
House Un - American Activities
Committee, for unfairly accusing
students of subversive activity.
The resolution urged students to
see both the film and .related
materials in order to consider the
issue fairly.
A motion aby Roger Seasonwein,
'61, to change the University re-
quirement that student organiza-
tions submit complete membership
lists each semester, was postponed
after lengthy debate. The rationale
for the change is that students are
sometimes subject to intimidation
later in life for affiliations during
their college careers.
File Statements
Seasonwein's plan allows organ-
izations, pending Council permis-
sion, to file a statement that they
fulfill membership requirements.
Interfraternity Council President
Jon Trost, '61, argued that the
lists are needed by the deans' offi-
ces for various reasons, and elimi-
nating them also causes consider-
able administrative inconvenience.
Richard Nohl, '62BAd., proposed
an alternate solution in which a
specific membership would not be
placed on a student's permanent
record if he so requested, and the
organizations' filed membership
lists would be destroyed annually.

The Lake Forest College chapter
of Phi Delta Theta yesterday an-
nounced it would repledge a Jew-
ish student against the orders
of the national fraternity and
would fight in court, if necessary,
to insure its right to do so.
The local group at the Presby-
terian-affiliated college said it was
prepared to "take this matter to
court in the form of an injunction
against the national fraternity to
prevent the removal or suspensiort
of our charter."
The Lake Forest group made
ILeo R eports
Joseph Ileo said yesterday nego-
tiations are under way to bring
rebel Oriental Province into the
proposed Congolese confederation.
He also told the United Nations
there is no longer any need for
an international military force in
the Congo and said that UN rein-
forcements on the way would be
better advised to stay home. The
vanguard of an Indian contingent
of 4,700 troops is scheduled to
arrive today.
(At the UN, the Ghana govern-
ment in a statement said Joseph
Kasavubu stopped being president
of the Congo when he accepted
the presidency of the proposed
confederation. Ghana said Kasa-
vubu's decision "requires= urgent
action by the UN.")
At a news conference held to
discuss the decision of the con-
ference of Congo leaders on a
Congolese confederation, Ileo said
there is no question of splitting off
the rebel provinces of Oriental and
Kivu from the rest of the former
Belgian Congo.
He said he had reviewed a ;tele-
gram from rebel army commander
Gen. Victor Lundula expressing a
desire to meet with "certain per-
sons"--Ileo declined to name them
-to reach an amicable settlement.
Ileo said the persons, presum-
ably in his government, had agreed
to meet Lundula, but refused to
name the tirie or place.

clear their desire to remain
within ,the structure of the nation-
al fraternity. "Every man in this
chapter wishes to remain a mem-
ber of Phi Delta Theta and to be
able, to keep the chapter at Lake
Forest College. We do not wish to
abandon the national fraternity,
but hope to improve it."
The Lake Forest group (Illinois
Theta chapter) had debated what
position to take ever since the
national ordered the depledging of
freshman Donald C. Schiller at the
beginning of February.
Long Discussion
"We have taken this action as a
result of many hours of discus-
sion and as a result of our per-
sonal feelings as a group of Young
Americans . . . After discussing
this situation at great length with
many qualified and intelligent in-
dividuals, we have decided to take
action toward local autonomy with
respect to the choice of members
of Phi Delta Theta," the local
chapter said.
William Graham Cole, president
of Lake Forest College, said the
school is in "full accord" with the
local Phi Delts' "desire to choose
their own members."
Cole said than an ad hoc com-
mittee. of students, administrators,
faculty, trustees and alumni was
re-exa nining the situation of
membership selection in all cam-
pus organizations.
The present policy against dis-
crimination at Lake Forest bars
racial and religious bias in select-
ing fraternity members, but does
not set a time limit for the re-

Of Marxism
In capitalist society, the working
force is a "commodity, to, be
boughtsand sold like any other
commodity," with its value de-
termined by the amount of labor
necessary to produce it, Martin
Glaberman said last night during
the second in a four-part series
of lectures on Marxism.
The value of labor is thus de-
fined in terms of what is necessary
for the "subsistence" of the worker
and his family. The crucial prob-
lem is that what is judged "sub-
sistence" varies with time, Glaber-
man, managing editor of the
newspaper "Correspondance," told
his Michigan Union audience.
Thus, there is a constant strug-
gle between the working class and
the capitalist for control of this
"surplus value of production" -
the quantitative difference between
value of the worker and the higher
value, of the commodity which he
Under the capitalist system, the
worker is at all times being paid
his full value. Within the context
of society as it now exists, every
time the worker asks for another
nickel, he is unjustified, but after
he gain that nickel raise, it be-
comes a part of his value,
'New Society'
In the Marxist view, Glaberman
asserted, a better life for the
worker can only come about in a
"new society" where surplus value
as it now exists will disappear and
the worker himself will determine
how the total fruits of his labor
will be utilized.
Meanwhile, this "alienation" of
the worker from his product is
causing a bitter personal struggle
in the factory-a problem which
is aggravated by increasing auto-
mation and capitalistic centraliza-
tion. The factory becomes admin-
istered as a huge impersonal force,
run by technicians and supervisors
whose role is mere discipline and
not creativity.
Growing dissatisfaction of the
working class under these condi-
tions is one of the inherent factors
within capitalism which will ulti-
mately lead it to self-destruction,
Glaberman said.

Depressed Area Measure

WASHINGTON UP)-The Senate last night passed President John
F. Kennedy's $394 million bill designed to bring new jobs to commu-
nities long suffering from depression.
i The depressed areas bill cleared the Senate on a 63-27 roll call
vote in almost exactly the form asked by the President.
It now goes to the House, where a banking subcommittee earlier
yesterday approved a similar bill. Leaders there hoped to get it through
before the end of next week.
The measure appears to have more strength in the House this
year than in the past. The House has cut down previous Senate ver-
sions substantially.
