Say Capital Outlay Subcommittee,
Opposes Funds for New Buildings
The state legislature will probably meet capital outlay appropria-
tions for buildings already under construction but will not give funds
for proposed new structures.
After an informal preliminary meeting in Lansing yesterday
afternoon with members of the capital outlay subcommittee, Marvin
{ L. Niehuss, vice-president and dean of faculties, indicated last night
that the legislature would meet the appropriations for the cyclotron
and Physics-Astronomy Building.

Daily .Magazine Editor Faith
Weinstein, '61, as student repre-
sentatives to the steering com-
mittee for the proposed Confer-
ence on the University.
The motion by Philip Power,
Spec, stipulates that these names
be contained in a letter calling
on the administration and the
Senate to appoint their own rep-
resentatives (three from each
group) to the steering committee
so that meetings can begin "at
the earliest opportunity."
TheCouncil passed a motion by
Roger Seasonwein, '61, that SGC
sponsor a showing of the film
"Operation Abolition." It will be
followed by a pro-con debate by
two qualified individuals on the
question: Does the film present
a distorted picture of the student
demonstrations in San Francisco
against the .House Committee on
Un-American Activities?
The Council's position on the
debate was made clear in a mo-
tion adopted last month in which
SaC criticized the film's editing
as being purposely distorted.
An extended period for audi-
ence participants to make com-
ments concerning the film or ask
questions of the debaters or each
other will follow the showing. The
program will be administered by
Seasonwein, Roberts and James
Yost, '62.
SGC also approved an amended
motion presented by Kenneth Mc-
Eldowney, '62, to set aside time

to discuss the "peace corps and

MIT Betters
Space Flight
WASHINGTON (P)-New radar
sleuthing of the planet Venus has
yielded a new and apparently
much more accurate "astronomi-
cal yardstick," upon which suc-
cessful space flight to the various
planets could depend.
This was reported yesterday by
a trio of Massachusetts Institute
of Technology scientists who said
they've kept an almost constant
radar watch on Venus for almost
seven weeks.'
As a result of this celestial
snooping, the MIT scientists said
they have come up with a new fig-
ure for the "astronomical unit."
That is the distance between the
Earth and the Sun and is basic
to virtually all measurements of
astronomical distances and guid-
ance of space vehicles.

The fight, dormant for more
than a week, was stirred up when
Reps. Frederic J. Marshall (R-

Warren), called on the Legislature
to invite Congressman Francis E.

Kowalski asked for a delay to
permit a similar invitation to a

assailed the film as distorted and

New Nations
TNeed Model
The fate of the United States
and the world will be decided by
the American ability to "provide
a model for emerging nations to
emulate," Prof. Hans Morgen-
thau said in the Challenge key-
note address last night.
The ultimate issue is which "im-
age" that of the United States
or the Soviet Union, will impress
these nations, the University of
Chicago political scientist said in
the talk on "Problems of the Unit-
ed States in Formulating Foreign
Policy toward Developing Na-
"What we export is not so much
American dollars but the essence
of the American social system."
Based on 'Folklore'
Unfortunately, past foreign pol-
icy has been based on the "folk-
lore of politics" or the assump-
tion that all a backward country
needs is foreign capital to ad-
vance technology which leads to
social stability, a democratic gov-
ernment and, finally, peaceful
"It is naive to believe that pro-
found changes can be simply ex-
ported," Morgenthau said. "Many
new nations don't want economic
development but want spectacular
manifestations of American re-
Prefer Prestige
He explained that these coun-
tries prefer "prestige" forms of
foreign aid. "They still want steel
mills as symbols of equality with
industrial nations, even though
the mill has been replaced in im-
portance by the nuclear reactor
and has the same symbolic func-
tion as a medieval castle."
The United States has tended
to overlook the political potential
of foreign aid, he said. "We have
been too serious, too objective over
the economic problems.
At 4 p.m. today Challenge will
present three seminars on foreign
policy in new nations. Theodore
Ntoampe will speak on Africa in
Rm. 3Y of the Michigan Union.
Prof. Zafar Islam, visiting lectur-
er, will speak on Pakistan in Rm.

sociology department will speak
on "Foreign Policy and Social
Change" in the Honors Lounge,
Undergrad Library.

Panel Cites Peace Corps Faults
Criticisms of the competency,
ability and political awareness of
members were leveled at the
Peace Corps last night in a panel'
discussion between five interna-M
tional and two American students.y
Terry Davis, '6 BAd, a student"
from the United Kingdom, said
he could not see the benefit of
having young people in the Corps
in lieu of older, more experienced
staff, because of the immatur-
ity of many college students.
Moreover, because the Corpsr
would be financed, trained and
operated by the United States it i'
could look like a United States
propaganda front rather than a
sincere effort to aid underdevel-
oped nations.
In reply to Davis' statements,
Alan Guskin Grad, spokesman for f
ACWR, stated that "youth and
immaturity is a legitimate criti-
cism, but we must have faith in
the selections. Not all college peo-
ple are immature."

May Exclude
Lewis Says-
Both Men, Women
Face Responsibility
For Enforcement
Undergraduate women will be
allowed in men's off-campus resi-
dences during women's calling
hours starting in September, Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis said yesterday.
The new ruling states that all
undergraduate women with the
exception of first semester fresh-
men will now be permitted to visit
men's apartments. Lewis, who wil
make the final decision on the
wording of the regulation, said the
only change which may be made
is the exclusion of all freshmen.
Present regulations do not allow
undergraduate women in men's
apartments at any time.

A committee of Dean of Women
Deborah Bacon, Assistant Dean of
Men John Bingley, outgoing Joint
Judiciary Chairman Howard Stein,
'61, outgoing Women's Judiciary
Chairman Judith Gardhouse, '61,
and Dorothy Wilson, '61, originally
formulated the proposal and sub-
mitted it to Lewis, who in turn
referred it to the Faculty Subcom-
mittee on Discipline.
He said the subcommittee had
recommended the deletion of al
freshmen women because they
were not familiar enough with
"campus mores and social situa-
It was decided, however, that by
the second semester most fresh-
men women have become acci-'
mated enough to the campus to be
accorded equal apartment privi-

Men Share Responsibility
All the committee members
agreed that men as well as women
should be held responsible for in-
fractions of the new regulation.
Miss Gardhouse suggested that
a special combined committee of
Women's and Joint Judic inter-
view both the man and the woman
involved in a violation of the rul-
ing to insure that consistency is
maintained in punitive measures.
To Consider
Change inVisa
The Senate Foreign Relations
Committee is thinking of modify-
ing the present Immigration Act,
James M. Davis, director of the
International Center, said yes-
The change Would make it
easier for foreign scholars to ob-.
tain special visas to permit them
to work in this country for longer
periods of time than they are 'ow
Davis, testifying before the com-
mittee recently, urged that the
bill "be amended to provide relief
to universities who wish to offer
a permanent post to a scholar who
came on an exchange visitor visa."
This would mean adopting the
more liberal policy in power un-
der the 1924 Immigration Act. The
change would aid in hiring quali-
fled foreign professors and r e
search men.
The universities could bring in
scholars as non-quota immigrants
and keep- them on for longer

periods of time than the 1952
Immigration Act allows.
After two to three years, the
person must reside in another
country for two years before being
allowed another visa. This pro-
vision was adopted to insure that
people trained here would return

The Michigan Union's drive to popularize the use of Union facili-
ties 'will be represented from now on by "Munion," a cartoon figure
who resembles a crew-cutted "Nebbish."
Charles Maiorana, '63E, conceived the name, winning $25 for his
efforts, in the Union's "Name Me" contest. Over 200 entries were sub-
mitted for the contest which ended March 10. Entries were judged by
the Union's senior officers and ties, in the traditional manner, were
decided in favor of the earliest postmark.
"Munion" was created by a Florida high school student, Drennen
Browne, who designs contemporary greeting cards. The cigarette-
smoking figure will continue to appear in most Union advertising copy.
