between the Central Intelligence Agency and the nation's colleges
was announced Tuesday by Rep. Adam Clayton Powell (D-NY).
Powell said he was disturbed by recent reports that CIA
agents took part in a Michigan State University project in South
Viet Nam several years ago.
The House Education and Labor Committee, which Powell
heads, will look into the general subject of CIA activities in
higher education circles, he said.
The committee has helped expand greatly the federal role in
education and just Monday won passage of a bill authorizing
$2.95 billion for college academic construction during the next
three years.
"Congress has not appropriated billions of dollars for the
nation's universities to have them used as a cover by the CIA,"
Powell said.

He will succeed Robert O. Morgan, who will become director
of special programs and executive consultant.
Forman has been associate executive director of the associa-
tion for the past two years. In his new post, he will be responsible

management of a broad range of programs for the University's
more than 200,000 alumni. His appointment becomes effective

gineering research with the Central Intelligence Agency has
resulted in protests from a graduate-student group.
But a university spokesman says, "Stanford will not know-
ingly accept any contract or grant in which the university is
used as a cover to clandestine activities."
The protest was staged Monday by the graduate coordinat-
ing council's academic freedom committee. The group picketed
the school's administrative offices and met for more than half an
hour with Hubert Heffner, associate provost for research.
Heffner, as spokesman for the university, said the classified
contract "does not differ in any significant respect from the
other research contracts."
University for a research project on the extent to which low-
income families benefit from private construction.
The one-year study will be conducted by the University's
Survey Research Center, under the direction of SRC program
director John B. Lansing.
Starting with a sample of newly-constructed housing units,
the research team will trace the sequence of moves-who moved
into the unit vacated by the family who moved into the newly-
constructed housing unit and what happened to the unit the
second family vacated.
Because of these chains of moves when a new dwelling comes
into the housing market, it is possible for the general supply of
housing to "trickle down" to the lower-income groups.
If the "trickling down" process is fast and effective, Lansing
noted, stimulation of new housing may be a preferred policy to
subsidizing new housing for low-income persons. But if the pro-
cess is slow and ineffective, he added, more direct methods must
be relied upon for increasing the supply of housing for these
chairman of the physics department, has been elected a member
of the National Academy of Sciences.
Crane's election to the top body of scientists in the United
States was announced today in Washington. Election to mem-
bership is made by other academy members in recognition of
outstanding scientific achievement.
The National Academy of Science was established by Con-
gress in 1863 to further science in the United States and serve as
an official advisory body to the government on matters of
science and technology.
Election of the 42 new members announced today brings the
group's membership to 745. All eight state members are Univer-
sity men.
Crane is known for his research in many areas of physics
but has most recently received attention for his work in refining
the accuracy of the gyromagnetic ratio, or "g factor," of the
electron and positron.
The results of this work have served to shore up the subject

of quantum electro dynamics, the modern physical theories of
the ultimate structure of matter and the universe.
Extending back to 1950, Crane's research resulted in his
achieving one of the most accurate measurements in the history
of science.
Before turning to the g-factor work, Crane achieved recog-
nition for his pioneering and leading work in the design of
nuclear particle accelerators. Recently he has also made con-
tributions to the technique of radio carbon dating-the finding
of the age of ancient objects through analysis of the amount of
carbon-14 they contain.
The University recognized his achievements and service in

Early Registration
Heavy; 16 Per Cent
Increase Anticipated
As classes begin today, officials
are counting registrationnaires to
determine if predicted enrollment
increases over last spring have
Iactually occurred.
Tuesday's half-day registration
period saw about 2000 students
register after waiting in a line be-
fore Waterman Gymnasium that
reached all the way to the flag
pole. Registration yesterday end-
ed the regular period, but late
registration is taking place today.
In last year's summer trimester
there was a total of 15,461 stu-
dents (not including those tak-
ing extension courses) at the Uni-
versity, including the Dearborn
and Flint campuses. During the
spring half-term there were 7,-
087 students.
During the winter of 1965, when
officials were planning for what
was to be the first summer tri-
mester, plans were begun to ac-
commodate 3000 students in the
spring. However, after conducting
a survey on student plans, admin-
istrators doubled their estimate tc
Yet as pre-registration ended
only 3000 students had signed up

with great student shortages. In

SDS Draws
Up Counter
Draft Test
Exam To Be Given
In Conjunction with
Federal Draft Test
Students and faculty members
met at the home of Anatol Rappa-
port last night to discuss plans
for administering the "counter
draft test" composed and spon-
sored by Students for a Demo-
cratic Society.
Representatives of SDS and the
faculty will meet with University
officials today. They will request
permission to use University facil-
ities in which they can administer
the test the night preceding the
first draft deferment test, May
13, and the afternoon following
the test, May 14.
Similar requests will be made
for giving the test in conjunction
with each of the three other de-
ferment tests scheduled within the
next two months.
The SDS test is open to anyone
in the community who wants to
take It. "It is important that the
entire community and not just the
men who are taking the draft de-
ferment test have an opportunity
to take the SDS test. It deals with
many important and pertinent as-
pects of the question of U.S. in-
volvement in Viet Nam," com-
mented Prof. Rappaport.
In addition to the test, answer
sheets will be available. A panel
discussion on these answers is also
planned. This will enable the par-
ticipants to explore the issues fur-
ther by asking questions and mak-
ing comments. "It will be, in many
respects, a silent teach-in," Rap-
paport added.
The chapter of SDS at the Uni-
versity is also handling the print-
ing of exams for chapters at Mich-
igan State University, Eastern
Michigan University and Wayne
State University. In addition to
the test, SDS will be distributing
information concerning the war on
each of dates when the deferment
test is being given.
The main purpose of the test is
educational. Aspects of the Viet
Nam war which are not wl pub-
licized or generally known ire pre-
sented in the form of question
and multiple choice answers.
Among the topics covered are the
effects of bombing, statements
made about the war in the past
and their authors, North Vietna-
mese participation in actual com-
bat and excerpts from magazines
concerning the brutality of th
war and their sources.
At Antioch College in Ohio,
where the SDS chapter is also
administering the test, the ad-
ministration has given the SDS
test equal status with the regular
exam. It will be administered in
the same room immediately fol-
lowing the draft deferment exami-
nation. The students may take the.
second exam on a voluntary basis
the same as the first one.
The examination however will
have no effect on the score the
student receives on the draft de-
ferment test since the latter is
being given by the government
and not the college.

May Festival Presents 'Musicthon', Ormandy

The ancient custom of skipping
about a Maypole clutching lively,
colored streamers was a practice
used to ward off the cold and evil
spirits of winter and welcome in
the humid hot spirits of summer.
In the latter days of active
thought, this lively custom came
to be replaced by a more passive
reception of the summer months.
Today, the May Festivities con-
