Board Accepts
IQC Meeting
On Quad Ills
Approval for an Inter-Quad-
rangle Council sponsored confer-
ence on residence hall -problems
came yesterday from the Resi-
dence Halls Board of Governors.
IQC President Thomas Moch,
'62, brought up the proposal for
a one-day meeting of students,
faculty and administrators to the

xpressed its desire to participate in
such a residence hall opinion poll.
The proposal for the survey grew
out- of the board's discussion yes-
terday of the opinion poll con-
ducted in East Quadrangle last
spring by Harold Scheub, former
resident adviser of Strauss House.
Criticism, Praise
Scheub's 181-page report, con-
taining criticism' and praise of
the University residence halls by
40 students, met with much criti-
cisml by the board. Members ques-
tinned its methodology, validity
and objectivity.
Prof. Robert Crane of the his-
tory department attacked the na-
ture of the report's questions and
asked for a new, more validstudy.
"Any social scientist could tear
apart the questions in five min-
Prof. Crane said he was "non-
plussed by the fact that the Uni-
versity, which has the most com-
petent Survey Research Center in
the country and a first rate psy-
chology department, should be
floundering around not knowing
what its people think."
To Prove.
He called for a survey devised
and administrated by SRC and the
psychology department to prove
that the University is "serious"
in its desire to perfect the quad-
Lewis explained that residence
hall system was originally to be
explored by the Newcomb study
and that preliminary work had al-
ready begun.
Peter Ostafin, Lewis's assist-
ant; said he and assistant dean of
men in charge of residence halls,
John Hale, had met with Prof.
"Newcomb and; outlined parts of
the study.
Concern with Students
Both Lewis and Dean of Men
Walter B. Rea emphasized the
University's concern with students
in the residence halls. "We are all
committed to the best housing
system possible," Lewis said. "It1
is a complex problem and. hard-
ly a day goes by that I don't
worry about it."
Rea underscored Lewis' re-
marks. He stressed the two men's
"bull sessions" with 'quadrangle
residents last fall when they visit-
ed each of the residence hall

Seven University faculty mem-
bers were among 250 American
professors signing a petition call-
ing for the- abolition of the House
Committee on Un-American Ac-
tivities released Sunday by the
American Civil Liberties Union.
The petition says .that the com-
mittee -hae "repeatedly under-
mined the freedoms essential for
national well-being," and that "to
perpetuate this committee is to
perpetuate a threat to our liber-
Universityhsigners were Profes-
sors Kenneth Boulding and Wil-
liam Haber of the economics de-
partment, Austin Warren of the
English department, Alfred Con-
ard and Spencer Kimball of the
Law School, William Frankena of
the philosophy department and
Wesley H. Maurer, chairman of
the journalism department.
Signers' Attitudes
The attitudes of the signers to-
ward the effect the petition was
trying to reach varied somewhat,
although they agreed on the main
point-the abolition of HUAC.
Prof. Maurer, a member of the
national board of the ACLU, said
that he had signed it with the
idea that it was aimed at achiev-
ing a directly political effect.
However, Prof. Boulding said
that, in his opinion, the petition
would affect any changes it might
through informing and educating
public opinion, which would then
have visible political effects.
Other Groups
Prof. Boulding also said that
although the present petition was
signed by college professors, other
responsible groups should circulate
similar petitions.
Particularly mentioning the ac-
tivities of the committee within
the academic community, the peti-
tion says: "The House committee
has been unrelenting in its haras-
sing of teachers. It has again and
again subpoenaed them."
Passes' Bond
For New Hall
City Council last night approved
bonding by at New York firm for
Ann Arbor's new $2.8 million city
hall, and began condemnation pro-
ceedings with owners of property
on the hall's proposed site who
have not agreed with the city's
price for their land.
Councilwoman Grace Flannery
(R) of the first ward, which con-
tains the area in which the neigh-
borhood rehabilitation committee
is working, commended its work
on housing in the last year. The
group's recommendations will be
discussed at the Council's working
committee next Monday night.

Pick Eight

Assembly Chooses Officers



TNine Polls


Assembly Dormitory Council yes-
terday elected Sally Jo Sawyer,
'62, president and Marylou Sel-
don, '62, first vice-president.
The former president was Myra
Goines, '61, and the former vice-
president was Miss Sawyer.
"The main function of the presi-
dent, besides chairing ADC and
the executive board meetings, is
representing the council to other
organizations on the University
campus,' Miss Sawyer said.
She hopes to aid the expansion
of the safety program on campus.
Assembly hopes to be in charge
of the natural disaster portion of
this program, since it already has
organized fire wardens and a fire
drill system in the dormitories.
She is also interested in' the
ADC education committee which
has been investigating possible
uses for money which formerly
was used to finance a Hungarian
student at the University. This
money will be used for a record
lending department, which would
benefit 3,000 students instead of
one, she said.
"The main consideration out-
side of prime duties as vice-
president is to coordinate jobs of
board members and keep things
running smoothly," Miss Seldon
said of her position.
Petitioning for the offices of
second vice-president, secretary
and treasurer, as well as all ADC
committee chairmen, will be open
until Thursday.
Interviewing will take place on
March 23 and 30. The Executive
Board will select new officers and
announce them on League Instal-
lation Night, April 17.
Rusk Requests
Standing UN
Military Force
BERKELEY () - Secretary of
State Dean Rusk yesterday pro-
posed creating a permanent United
Nations military force ready for
immediate use in crisis areas like
the Congo.
Rusk contended that "effective
international police forces are
needed to support the processes of
law" while negotiations continue
seeking effective world disarma-
Dag Hammarskjold, UN secre-
tary-general, experienced difficulty
in recruiting troops for the UN
Congo force and some national
units later were recalled by their
home governments.
"Experience in the Congo sug-
gests that we must turn once more
to the possibility of constituting a
permanent United Nations force,
specifically trained and equipped,
held in readiness, for immediate
use," Rusk said.
He declared United Nations suc-
cess in the Congo was important
to all the world organization s
members, who must look to it for
their safety.
"The United Nations' must ac-
complish its task in the Congo
both because of the Congo and
because it must ready itself for
other, as yet unidentified, crises in
the years ahead. Effective interna-
tional action may be the difference
between war and peace," he said.
"In such situations time is of the
essence and a ready response is
The issue of disarmament, Rusk
said, "needs fresh and imaginative
review by all concerned."

SBromage Supports Con-Con

Those who are obsessed with a
feeling of "danger" when they
think 'of a constitutional conven-
tion are "turning their backs on
democracy," Prof. Arthur W.I
Bromage of the political science
department told a local Citizens
for Michigan' audience last night.
Such an attitude expresses a
lack of faith in the present gener-
ation to create a constitution as
good as the one of 1909, Prof.
Bromage said. The opposition sees
con-con as "a kind of Pandora's
box that when opened will over-
whelm us."
But this is an insult to the voter
as the people will have an oppor-
tunity to reject the new consti-
tution if they deem it unsatisfac-
tory, he added.
Sees GOP Control
Prof. Bromage predicted that
if the electorate votes in favor of
con-con, delegates will probably
be elected on a partisan ticket and
Republicans will control the con-

through New Jersey, Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Southern Michigan and end-
ing with Chicago. "I visualize the
possibility of a loose federation,
forming a great metropolitan gov-
But, so that Michigan urban
areas could participate in such a
federation, or even to form one
on a smaller scale within the
state's borders, there is a possi-
bility that the state's constitution,
with its restrictions and inelas-
ticity, will have to be changed.
Another Concern
Another concern of localities,
which a future convention should
examine, are the ambiguous pow-
ers of taxation with which the old
constitution provides cities and
townships with "home rule," Prof.
Bromage said.
The present legislative statute
allows localities to levy "excise"
taxes, but this hazy terminology
has never been clarified by the
legislature or the courts.
Thus, a "pyramid ofproperty
taxes~".has developed with no di-
