VSU Budget Request
University Asks $4 Million Rise
From Last Year, $19 Million Total
Wayne State University was received coolly by legislators Tuesday
't when it took them a request for almost $4 million more from
state this year than last.
Requesting almost $19 million as its operating budget for this

Expect More Students

A motion to investigate joint
judiciary council won approval in
Student -Government Council last
night, but action was postponed
on two student rights motions.
The Council established a 4
member committee, to look into
joint judic's application of due
process of law, its suggested re-
visions of University regulations
and its "theoretical and actual
relationship" to the deans' offices,
the University committee on stu-
dent conduct, and that conmmit-
tee's subcommittee on discipline.
A committee of the whole SGC
discussed a motion deploring the
chemistry department's use of
non-academic evaluation cards.
Not Qualified
Proponents of the motion claim-
ed that teaching fellows who in-
structed large sections of an in-
troductory science course that ful-
filled a distribution requirement
were not qualified to answer
questions about a student's politi-
cal affiliations and loyalties or
his social adjustment.
The opposition's argument was
that graduate schools, scholarship
committees and prospective em-
ployers request this sort of infor-
mation and it is to the student's
advantage to have it available.
The motion states that the eval-
uations are unrelated to the stu-
dents' academic competence and
intelectual integrity, and that they
inhibit students in their willing-
ness to speculate and to form
political and social associations.
Sponsor of the motion, Daily
Editor Thomas Hayden, '61, com-
mented, "While I am worried
about the fact that unqualified
people are making judgments
which are potentially harmful, I
am more concerned about the
present climate of fear which such
practices create at the Univer-
Inaccurate Evaluations
"It is partly because of the
existence of such unqualified and
inaccurate evaluations that stu-
dents are afraid to express opin-
ions and commit themselves to
signing. petitions and openly sup-
porting controversial issues.",
A similar problem was involved
in a motion by Roger Seasonwein,
'61, to eliminate a University reg-
ulation that student organizations
must file complete membership
lists with the University. Season-
wein pointed out the possibility
that membership per se may at a,
later date be used to intimidate
SGC also accepted the proced-
ures of the committee on member-
ship in student organizations.

The forced depledging of a Jew-E

predicted last night.I
"I don't see how it could have,

Duane Wasmuth, '62E, said. "The
chances are nine out of 10 that
he was not dropped because he
was Jewish."
A five-man national council or-
dered the Lake Forest Chapter to
depledge the Jewish freshman. His-
removal was asked because Phi
Delt is "founded on Christian prin-
ciples and we feel that Christian
beliefs must be practiced by the
members," John Shetman, a mem-
ber of the council said.
"The case at Lake Forest is not
a matter of the student being Jew-
ish, but rather a matter of this
student not being able to_ com-
pletely accept Christianity and, as
far as we know, not being a mem-
ber of any Christian church," he
Lawrence McLain, the Phi Delt.
president at Lake Forest said his
fraternity is discussing what ac-'

nounce a decision next week.
Officials of the Presbyterian af-
filiated school in Illinois criticized
the council's action and asserted it
was because of the student's reli-
gious background.
Lake Forest's dean of students
said he. was working closely with
the PhiDelts to reach "a satis-
factory course of action." He ex-
plained that the college has a
policy against discrimination, but
has not set a specific deadline to
remove bias rulings or practices.
Wasmuth said that Phi Delt did
not have a bias clause in its con-
stitution. A ruling limiting mem-
bers to "male, white persons of full
Aryan blood not less than 16 years
of age" was replaced in 1954 by
one 'allowing "such (persons) as
are socially acceptable to all mem-
bers of the fraternity."

The significance of the Cam-

Exciting Results
"If there are no errors, they are
very fundamental and exciting re-
sults," he said.
The new findings are "strong
evidence" in support of the "evolu-
tionary" theory, Prof. Peter A.
Franken of the physics depart-
ment said. But he also added that
they still must be substantiated.
He pointed up the wide pos-
sibility for errors in deriving in-
formation about "radio stars" by
comparing their spectra with
those of known galaxies.
Meanwhile, the search for more
clues to the origin of the universe

Kennedy Possesses 'Savvy'
For Presidenc Cater Says,
President John Kennedy has the political savvy needed for the
presidency, Douglass Cater, Washington editor of the Reporter maga-
zine said in his lecture yesterday on "The New Presidency."
He noted that the American people at various times have sought
qualities in their president. CQmmonly, when they sought adminis-
trators, they turned to businessmen; when they wanted a stirring



leader they chose military men.
The prime quality needed is that
of a politician, Cater noted.



Limited Powers
With his executive powers lim-
ited, a president's chief power is
persuasion fo the two publics to
which he is responsible-the na-
tional politicians and the general
public. To do this a president
needs political awareness. "He
must be aware of the political
stakes," Cater observed.
Although it is too early to make
a definite assessment of Kennedy,
Cater noted several attributes
which tend to make him a good
The President has shown re-
markable success in selecting his
officials, despite the fact he knew
few of them.
Man in Motion
"Another capacity Kennedy has
shown is that of presidential en-
ergy. He is a man in motion,"
Cater said.
This leads to another attribute
of massive curiosity. "Kennedy is
impatient with fuzzy, imperfect
ideas and has gathered around
him intellectuals and idea mak-
ers," he observed.
Kennedy also has composure and
the ability to speak with detach-
ment and precision.

Williams Lauds New Cuban Freedom

Negro integrationist leader Robert F. Williams delivered a 20
minute address on the Negro Revolution: Cuba and the South, which
immediately plunged into. a heated two hour debate here last night.
Williams stressed the "humanitarianism of the Cuban Revolu-
tion," and its lack of racial discrimination saying, "I enjoyed a
freedom (while in Cuba) I have never enjoyed here.
"Cuba to me is a symbol, a -hope for tomorrow," Williams said.
He repeatedly pointed out that in Cuba predjudice is legislated away
and called it a model for Southern States to follow.
Violent Dispute
Immediately upon opening the floor to questioning a staff physi-
clan for the University, a Cuban doctor until last November, now a
Cuban refugee, violently disputed several of Williams claims.
The doctor agreed with Williams that the Southern racial situa-
tion needed solution, but he stated that Cuba has always had integra-
tion and that Castro had nothing to do with its conception.
The doctor stated that he had been pro-Castro at the revolution's
beginning, but that Cuba had become a "police state."
Withholds Name
The doctor refused to disclose his name, saying that he was no
politician, said further that any man who spoke "out against the
policy of Castro .. they would put him to the wall."
Debate continued until 11 p.m. when John Erfurd, Grad., co-
Schairmanof the Committee for Improved Cuban-American Relations,
