ion broke off negotiations last night with Western Union and
called a nationwide strike against the huge communications firm.
A spokesman for Western Union said just before midnight
that "we broke off negotiations as of this very moment."
"This means," he said, "there will be no public message tele-
grams accepted or delivered."-
But he said private line service and other similar facilities-
including government-leased lines-would be in operation "as
much as possible."
in session last night by the House Ways and Means Committee.
The committee gave the University an extra $100,000 for cancer
research. Otherwise, the committee reaffirmed the Senate figure
of $57.8 million. This is well below the University's original re-
quest of $65 million.
The committee's proposal awaits passage by the House as a
whole. Action on the bill is expected sometime this afternoon.

CITY COUNCIL HAS ANNOUNCED a decrease in the allow-
able noise level for vehicles from 95 to 90 decibels. The decision
was unanimously passed over the objections of a representative
of the motorcycle industry.
The ordinance makes it unlawful to "modify or remove parts
of a standard muffler, or to utilize trumpet or other amplifiers
as part of the exhaust system of a motor vehicle." The ordinance
is expected to bring a 50 per cent decrease in noise.
A local dealer said that a majority of the motorcycles that
he sells would exceed the new decibel level.
The ordinance permits persons arrested for noisy mufflers to
take a decibel meter test. Assistant City Attorney S. J. Elden
said the test was not mandatory, but could be used as evidence to
prove innocence or guilt if the person charged with a violation
volunteered for the test.
The ordinance will be reviewed in six months to determine
its effectiveness.
cational research has been announced by program director Byron
G. Massialas of the education school.
The Social Science Education Doctoral Program will prepare
researchers in social science education at elementary and second-
ary school levels.
Students working toward their doctoral degrees on this pro-
gram will participate in colloquia and seminars developed specially
for the program. In addition, they will work on the many current
research projects at the University.
The S.S.ED. Program is expected to contribute significantly
to educational theoryain the social sciences,
Applications for admission to the S.S.E.D. Program are

urday whether their experiment aboard the Orbiting Geo-Physical
Observatory from Cape Kennedy last Monday will be successful.
The satellite may alert space officials when solar flares from
the sun make it too hazardous to launch astronauts to the moon.
The instrument is designed to investigate the dynamic spectra of
radio "bursts" in low frequency ranges. These measurements are
necessary from the satellite because the earth's ionosphere blocks
measurement of such low frequency signals on the earth's surface.
"Sometime on Saturday we should know how successful the
experiment is from a technical point of view," Fred T. Haddock,
director of the Radio Astronomy Observatory said yesterday.
"Then if the experiment lasts for several months, we expect to be
quite successful with our measurements."
STRIKING MEMBERS OF ST. JOHN'S faculty are suing the
university for fraudulently listing their names in the 1966-67
The 24 plaintiffs are all members of the United Federation of
College Teachers, and are asking $100,000 each in the suit filed
in the New York State Supreme Court. They contend that none
of them plan to join the faculty until the teachers dismissed last
January are reinstated.
The striking teachers charge that the listing implies to the
academic community that "every plaintiff is a hypocrite."

New Strike
Holds Up 'U'
Steelworkers and
Laborers Demand
Increase in Wages
The wheels of construction
activity in Ann Arbor ground to
a halt again yesterday as the Lab-
orers Local and the Reinforced
Steel Workers Local struck for
higher wages.
A University spokesman said
that the strikes have halted all
University construction projects,
including the University Events
Building, the Medical Science ex-
tension building and the Mott Hos-
The community had just been
hit by a four-week strike of car-
penters and bricklayers which
ended one week ago.
'U' Affected
James Brinkerhoff, University
director of plant extension said
the strike by the reinforced steel-
workers would have the greatest
impact on University projects.
But the Cedar Bend Housing
Project is not in immediate dan-
ger, he said, because it has pro-
gressed beyond the point where
work by reinforced steelworkers is
However, if the strike by the
laborers continues for more than
two weeks, all University projects
would be seriously affected, Brink-
erhoff said.
Cedar Bend
He emphasized that Cedar Bend
Housing will open on schedule in
time for the fall semester, barring
an unexpectedly long strike.
It is expected that electricians,
plumbers, steamfitters and other
building tradesmen will feel the
effect of the laborers' strike b{w
fore long, although they are not
directly affected by it.
The laborers had been working
on a day-to-day basis until today.
They are asking for a. wage in-
crease of $1.07, equal to the wages
paid to laborers in Wayne County
(Detroit. Contractors have offer-
ed a 90-cent package.
The strike by the reinforced
steelworkers (rodbusters) curtail-
ed most major construction pro.-
jects in 37 Lower Peninsula coun-
ties, including Washtenaw. The
laborers strike is a local dispute,
Last month's strike of carpen-
ters and bricklayers halted $71
million in University construction
projects. When it ended last week,
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont said
the strike had not affected target
dates for most University projects.
Events Building
Brinkerhoff noted the target
date for the University Events
Building, the new site for basket-
ball contests, is May 1, 1967. The
likelihood that the building will
be completed by that time is
"problemmatica,' he said.
Elsewhere, building programs at
Metropolitan Airport in Detroit
and Ford Motor Co.'s River Rouge
plant were shut down by the rod-
busters' strike. The rodbusters,
numbering 1,500, have jurisdiction
over the placing of reinforced
steel in concrete, a vital part of
many construction projects.

Major Role
The University has not yet de-
termined its specific request for
funds under the new act, Smith
said. But the International Study
Council will play a major role in
stimulating, reviewing and co-
ordinating University activities inl

also will be used to maintain the
work of existing foreign programs,
