abandon a program approved by
three previous Republican state
conventions.
"I am very confident that the
constitutional convention will be
called by the people in the April-
3. election," Sallade added.
Differences of Opinion
He said tha tthere will surely
be differences of opinion, but they
will be resolved by the convention.
Sallade expects that the con-
con will be concerned with tax re-,
form, but he stressed that the
legislature could clear up most of
the tax issues.
"I am' equally interested in re-
form of the executive branch and
in clearing up the confusion in
state government," he said.
Lengthen Governor's Term
He would like the con-con to
lengthen the governor's term to
four years and to increase the ap-
pointive power of the executive
branch, so that executive respon-
sibility may be pinpointed in the
hands of the -governor.
Sallade also favors home rule
for counties and a wider base of
revenue choices for cities.
He emphasized that this organi-
zation, with "temporary headquar-
ters at 304% S. State, is "in no
way an attempt to disturb the
spirit of unity so essential for
victory at the polls.
"However, the goal of unity must
not be used as a club to destroy
vitalitya nd new ideas without
which no party can succeed."
"Having served within the Leg-
islature with the. new State Chair-
man, George Van Peursem, I have
the greatest respect for him, Sal-
lade said.
Decries'Lack
He also decried the lack of a
positive approach in industrial re-
development of the' state and civil
rights.
"It is quite obvious that by its
actions at the State Convention,
the party has taken a turn to the
right," the veteran of ten years in
state and local politics said.
Sallade plans to reenter politics,
preferably in the executive branch
of Michigan's government, when
his law studies and his business
will permit.
He said he might well be very
interested in being a delegate to
the constitutional convention if it
is approved by the voters in the
spring election.

Conventions
Study Ban,
By MICHAEL BURNS
The Communi'" speaker ban
policy at state-supported colleges
and universities came up for brief
consideration at the Democratic
and Republican conventions last
weekend, with no official action
being taken by either party.
The issue was presented in a
different manner at each conven-
tion for different reasons but the
result in both cases was an avoid-
ance of taking an official stand..
Plank on Freedom
The Democrats encountered the
issue after drafting their platform
plank on academic freedom which
stated that teachers are entitled
to the same freedoms of thought
and action as other private citi-
zens.
A question from the floor was
addressed to the chairman of the
platform committee asking wheth-
er the convention was to be more
specific on the Wayne State Uni-
versity controversy in which the
Communist propagandist speaker
ban had been challenged.
A member of the platform com-
mittee answered the question by
saying that since WSU was satis-
fied with the actions of the State
Council of College Presidents in
sustaining the speaker regulation
and since the present policies at
all state institutions are very simi-
lar, there was no need to make a
further official statement in en-
dorsing the rule.
Shows Attitude
The committee member also
pointed out that since the Demo-
crats have a majority on all gov-
erning boards of state schools
(State Board of Education, Board
of Regents, Board of Agriculture
and Board of Governors) and also
control the executive office in
Lansing, including the Superinten-
dent of Public Instruction, the
continuation of the status quo
clearly shows the party's attitude
toward the policy.
The GOP platform committee
was presented with a proposed
statementwhich, would endorse a
ban on all Communist speakers,
not just propagandists, at all state
supported schools. This proposal
was narrowly defeated in com-
mittee because, according to a re-
liable source, the issue was "too
hot" a political question and this
stand on the subject might prove
to be costly in the spring elections.

On Jan. 20, the last edition of The Daily in the first
semester carried a news story concerning action by the
Board of Directors of the Michigan Union to establish a
"special committee to find ways and means for rectify-
ing the situation of a disagreeable atmosphere" in the
Union Grill. This item carried the heading "Directors of
Union Move to Deter 'Undesirables'." Accompanying the
story was a photograph of several persons sitting around
a table in the grill room. It was not the intention of any-
one connected with the publication of this issue of The
Daily to represent or imply that the persons in the photo-
graph were undesirable patrons of the Union. If the con-
trary impression was created, The Daily wishes to extend
its apology to those persons included in the photograph.

The college's board in control,
in its meeting in Spring Lake Fri-
day, announced that recent fund-
raising efforts had raised the total
given or pledged to over $700,000.
The board must have a site and
$1 million before the legislature
will vote it appropriations. These
restrictions were part of last year's
bill authorizing efforts to start the
school.
The board also received the re-
sults of its week-long contest to

eral hundred of them-were sent
in by local citizens. The prize of-
fered was a four-year tuition
scholarship to the school.

Michigan's basketball team displayed a new hard-driving offense
last night as it registered its first Big Ten win of the season, a con-
vincing 78-67 triumph over traditional rival Michigan State before an
enthusiastic, cheering crowd of 6,500.
The victory enabled the Wolverines to climb past the Spartans
into a tie for eighth in the conference with Wisconsin, as the visitors
from Lansing took over the cellar with a 1-7 mark.
Sophomore Tom Cole led the balanced team effort with 29 points,
19 coming in the second half, while Scott Maentz grabbed 18 rebounds

Hundreds of white and Negro students throughout the nation
demonstrated against segregated motion picture theatres and sup-
ported the "jail, no bail" stand of 13 imprisoned Rock Hill, S. C.
Negroes in a special Lincoln's birthday protest.
Theatres were picketed in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, and Hou-
ston, Tex., with crowds reaching 200. To the traditional text of '"The
Battle Hymn of the Republic" demonstrators sang "We'll send Jimmie
Davis to an integrated hell," and "We'll hang Orval Faubus to a sour
apple tree." In New York, Boston, and Chicago, students participated
in stand-ins in theatres which do'"
not segregate but have common
ownership with segregatedsouth-Foot A n
demonstration was nationally tele-
vised.
Rock Hill, S. C., gave impetus to
the nationwide demonstration
when the Negro students there
went to jail for 30 days rather
than post bonds to appeal their
conviction of trespassing when
they refused to leave the segregat-
ed lunch counter of a Rock Hill
store.

night instructed the city admin-

"The project might cost around

fees charged, we could use these
funds to build more;" Laird said.

The business administration,
school yesterday approved a mas-
ter's degree program in quantative
methods that will include{ substan-
tial work outside of the school.
Included in the program will be
classes in the mathematics depart-
ment, the engineering college in-
dustrial engineering department
and the Survey Research Center,
in addition to regular business
courses.
Mathematical Tools
Object of the program is to
train managers in the use of in-
creasingly-employed mathematical
business tools, Dean Floyd A. Bond
explained.
Beyond already-existing require-
ments, the new program, unani-
mously approved by the business
administration school's faculty,
would offer two options:
1D Courses in linear program-
ming, game theory and business
policy, more oriented toward gen-
eral management skills.
2) Courses in mathematical sta-
tistics, probability theory and sur-
vey research methods, more
oriented toward research.

Emerging nations can alter the balance of the world, but there
should be no "picking sides," by East' and West Sir Hugh Foot, for-
mer governor of Cyprus said last night.
It is not a case of "lining up and wearing the same football jer-
seys," Foot said in the keynote Challenge speech before a large crowd,
at Rackham Aud. "A new country wants to be independent and indi-
cate a mind of its own."
The West has a trump card, however, in the concept of free gov-
ernment, Foot said, and it should welcome new nations as potential
reinforcements to the free world.
Task Hard
Attempting to form a federation is one of the hardest tasks of a
colonial administrator, he said. The development of the Federation
of the West Indies is a dramatic example.
In Africa, it is necessary to reconcile modern government with
tribal allegiances, Foot said. It is possible to overcome these loyalties,
however, as evidenced by the independence of Nigeria, the former
Nigerian Chief Secretary and Governor said.
Leaders Unified
"The Nigerian leaders were brought together by a feeling of na-
tionhood. They had a single parliament and served together on
marketing boards and other committees."
Colonial policies of the European powers in Africa varied, Foot
said. "The French wanted to turn to Africans into .Frenchmen, and
socially they have succeeded.
"The Belgians had the policy of 'dominate and serve,' while the
