f3)ubsi~ssans'By MICHAEL BURNS
James C. Zeder, a University engineering graduate, believes
in a "uiesa' approach" to educational administration.
But besides his business training (former vice-president of
Chrysler Corp.), Zeder brings into the cimpaiign an extensive
record of educational service. He is presently a vice-president
and trustee for Michigan State University-Oakland, a Univer-
sity of Detroit trustee and chairman of the Board of Governors r
of the University's Phoenix Memorial Project.s
In the area of student attitudes, the Republican nominee1
4candidly admits aslack of specific knowledge. He feels primarily
that an institution has an obligation to provide the best edu-
cation available for "the high-caliber students necessary for our
What is good for business is not necessarily good for edu-
cation, Zeder cautions. He stresses the need for increased co-
operation between the two, as in the Phoenix Project, where
educators and businessmen have joined forces.
Both Would Benefit
Zeder feels that both a scientist and an engineer would
help the Board of Regents to aid the University in gaihing pres-{
tige through areas of research. He sees the University as the
research center of the Midwest.
"Progress follows research," he maintains. "We must peddles
ideas" through increased research.
The Regent must be an educator as well as a business man, l
Zeder says. He should work toward providing the "education of
the whole man-the complete man-development to the fullest
of his mental and spiritual and social faculties."
z Active Role,
Zeder believes 'in an active role for the Board. It "should
not wait for items to come to their attention, but should gather ,
information" and discuss it at the meetings. He declines to
name any specific areas, adding "I'm not on the job yet."
' A heavy-set man in his sixties, Zeder enters state politics
for the first time in this. election. His accomplishments in the
business world have won him acclaim before his retirement last
year. He has been credited with many automotive "firsts" while
a serving in the Chrysler organization.
.A 1922 mechanical engineering graduate of the University,
Zeder also holds an honorary doctor's degree from his alma
mater, and from two other universities.
Intensely Interested
Zeder is intensely interested in the administration of edu-
cations his involvement in other educational boards illus-
trates. He has been active in numerous civil affairs in-his home
community of Bloomfield Hills. He is married and' has two sons
and two daughters. His term on the board of governors of the
atoms for peace Phoenix Project has given him an insight into'
an important area of the University-"the inter-relationship of
r industry and universities."
"Business follows research," he emphasizes.

yesterday in Bangkok said they
were prepared to take all neces-

Gromyko apparently was trying
to head off any military interven-
tion by the Southeast Asia Treaty
Organization, whose foreign min-
isters opened a three-day session
yesterday in Bangkok.
Kennedy and Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan of Britain con-
ferred at Key West and reported.
what was described as "absolute
agreement" on Laos.
There were scattered signs that
Russian Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev is beating a retreat from any
idea of leaping over the Laotian
brink into a'war that could em-
broil the world.
The not-unfriendly tone Gro-
myko used after conferring with
Kennedy was one bit of evidence.
Another straw which may indi-
cate a favorable direction of the
Russian wind came in an article in;
Pravda which said the Soviet
Union will welcome negotiations.

Communists have infiltrated
many of the nation's colleges, in-
cluding the University and Wayne
State University, a Detroit news-
paperman has charged.
In a 38-page pamphlet called
"Commies on the Campus" re-
leased last week, Floyd McGriffl
is attempting to "bring to the at-
tention of those interested in set-
ting up counter forces to leftists,
Communists and other un-Ameri-
cans on our campuses the facts
about subversive infiltration."
McGriff, who identifies himself
as an editorial adviser to his son
Jack's Detroit Suburban News-
papers, cited the House Committee
on un-American Activities' 1954
investigation of faculty as an in-
dication of Communist influence
within the University.
Attacks WSU
While admitting he was un-
familiar with present University
atmosphere, McGriff said, "Give
me two weeks (of investigation)
and I'll tell you something.
He attacked the WSU adminis-
tration for its opposition to ROTC
and for lifting a ten-year-old ban
against Communist speakers.
"WSU has opened the doors to
a million dollar soapbox from
which leftists can spew and spawn
parts of a Communist creed with-
out opposition."
Too Immature
Although he believes college stu-
dents are too immature to listen to
Communist propaganda, McGriff
does not oppose debates on the
merits of the Soviet system. "I
would like nothing better than to
see Khrushchev answered by some-
one like Henry Cabot Lodge."
The newsman criticized unreal-
istic professors who experience is
too limited to be effective teachers.
"You have some of these profes-
sors whb have done nothing but
read books and read more books
and don't know anything trying
to. teach our young people."
He related his personal back-
ground to his analysis of the poli-
tical situation, at WSU. McGriff
claims to have studied communism
in Detroit for 25 years after serv-
ing with American forces in Rus-
sia in 1919. He also wrote a thesis
on Karl Marx in 1911 when he was
at Indiana State University.

LANSING (JP)-President John A. Hannah of Michigan State Uni-
versity yesterday outpined a seven-point program to help MSU meet
"the growing problems of financing and rising enrollments."
The proposals, affecting the undergraduate level mainly, were ex-
plained at a meeting of the MSU faculty and staff last night. The
plan, Hannah said, will be presented. to the board of trustees at its
March 31 meeting. The first proposal is to encourage students to as-
+sume progressively more responsi-
for their own learning,
through-among other things -
"far more comprehensive" advis-
ing by the faculty.
Others include:
Facilitating learning by defin-
. ing educational objectives more
concretely and specifically and or-
.'::>>ganizing courses and curricula to
serve the purposes of the students.
Redefining the responsibilities of
faculty members with reference to
rank and the most productive use
of their time.
I ..f Establishment of a Learning Re-
sources Center including aims such
as closed-circuit television, film,
teaching machines and program-
med studies.
Greater use of residence halls.

toine Gizenga said yesterday
troops under Congo Maj. Gen.
Joseph Mobutu suffered a crush-
ing defeat in an attempted inva
sion of Orientale Province March
8. .
Bernard Salumu, district com-'
missioner of Stanleyville, capital
,of Orientale, said Gizenga forces
killed 116 Mobutu soldiers and
captured 800 In the fighting.
Salumu, who was secretary to
slain ex-PremierPatrice Lumum-
ba, said the battle took place
near Bumba in adjoining Equator
Mobutu left Leopoldville for the
uper Congo last January, osten-
sibly to lead a military expedition
against the Stanleyville regime. He
returned March 18 but made no
mention of any fighting.
He was known to have gathered
troops at Lisala, an eastern Equa-
tor town near Bumba.
Salumu in an interview-repeated
a Gizenga demand that the Con-
golese parliament be reconvened.
Mobutu suspended parliament af-
ter Lumumba was desposed last
Salumu suggested that parlia-
ment meet in a neutral country,
preferably Sudan. If it were to
meet in 'the Congo, he said, the
United Nations command should
provide protection.
"Otherwise, Mobutu forces could
attack parliament and the UN
would not interfere, claiming it
to be an internal affair," Salumu
