Hopes Rise
AEC Officials Visit
Site Near Ann Arbor
On 'Routine' Tour
Ann Arbor's chances of being
selected as the site for /' the pro-
posed $350-million, 200-billion
electron volt atomic particle accel-
erator were bolstered over the
weekend, University Vice-Presi-
dent for Research A. Geoffrey
Norman said.
A group of Atomic Energy Com-
mission officials were conducted
on their fourth tour of the pro-
posed site in nearby Northfield
Township. Additional drillings had
been undertaken in the area since
the AEC's last visit on April 7.
Norman said AEC Chairman
Glenn Seaborg and members of
his group touring sites through-
out the nation had requested fur-
ther information on the water
table and materials underlying
the proposed site in Northfield.
The drillings were made and a
report sent to the AEC three
weeks ago, Norman reported. Prof.
Donald E. Eschman, chairman of
the University's geology and m -in
eralology department, briefed the
AEC tour group on the new find-
ings Saturday.
Norman said the new drilling,
which also involved pumping
quantities of ; water to determine
the effect at other drilling sites
on the tract, confirmed previous
indications that a suitable foun-
dation for the huge, mile-in-dia-
meter accelerator is present at the
proposed site. A solid foundation
is necessary to prevent the ex-
tremely precise equipment from
settling and losing what Norman
'9~ called its "resolution," its ability
to focus the -high-energy beam
that is the machine's heart.
The tests also indicated suffi-
cient ground water is available for
AEC commissioner James T.
Ramey headed the AEC group on
Saturday's "routine" tour. Ramey
had not previously visited the
Northfield site.
Ramey emphasized that no de-
cision has yet been made on which
site wlil be awarded the highly-
prized facility. The community
surrounding the site is likely to
experience rapid economic growth
because of the facility's "spin-off"
effects. In addition to Ann Arbor,
sites in Colorado, Wisconsin, Cal-
ifornia, Illinois and Long Island,
N.Y.,' are being considered.
AEC Washington officials have
recently denied rumors that a
s decision had been made to locate
the accelerator at the University
of California.
Ramey s a id Saturday that
among the considerations upper-
most in the minds of the AEC
commissioners is a site's proxim-
ity to a university community as
well as availability of water re-
The AEC officials declined com-
ment on when a final decision
could be expected on the acceler-
ator's location. AEC Chairman

D.C. draft board to the D.C. Selective Service Appeal Board.
The Appeal Board reversed the local board.
Brewster Jr. said Sunday current United States draft policy "has
invited a cops and robbers view of national obligation."
At the baccalaureate service the day before Yale's commence-
ment, Brewster said current Selective Service resulations "en-
courage a cynical avoidance of service, a corruption of the aims
of education, and a tranishing of the national spirit."
Earlier this year, Brewster amended the university's official
policy with regard to local draft boards. Under the new system
Yale will no longer send student grades directly to Selective
Service, but will instead let students decide for themselves
whether they wish to give relevant information to their boards.
Class standing is currently used by Selective Service as a criterion
for allocating deferments to college students.
Brewster said pressures are eroding the sense of national
obligation and loyalty, but that it is "false to suggest that the
only way to serve humanity is to repudiate your country."
DETROIT (P-THE FIELD of Democratic candidates for
the Michigan U.S. Senate nomination was cut to two today with
the withdrawal of James L. Elsman from the race.
Elsman, a businessman who had sought to compete with
former Gov. G. Mennen Williams and Detroit Mayor Jerome
Cavanagh, said he had collected about 10,000 signatures on
nominating petitions, about half the number required.
Democrats needed 19,336 to run for statewide office and Re-
publicans needed 11,303.
Elsman, a 36-year-old Detroit attorney, said he plans to
seek no other office this year, but added that he might file
a legal challenge to the petition signature requirement.

EUGENE, OREGON (P)-A JUDGE ordered a student jour-
nalist yesterday to answer grand jury questions about an article
on students using marijuana.'
Circuit Judge Edward Leavy issued his order after a two-hour
hearing during which the journalist, Miss Annette Buchanan,
managing editor of the University of Oregon Daily Emerald,
refused to reveal the names of the students she reported about
in an article on campus addiction last month.
Miss Buchanan, who was ordered to appear again tomorrow
morning, said it would be a violation of journalistic ethics to
reveal the names, and that it is beyond the scope of the grand
jury to require her to do so.

Smith Says Plans
May Not Be Given
To Regents in June
Architects, administrators and
faculty -planners are continuing
their work on residential college
plans, but some doubt that they
will be ready in time for the
next Regents' meeting was ex-
pressed yesterday.
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Allan Smith said yester-
day 'that there is doubt the final
plans-including a possible addi-
tion of $350,000-will be ready by
June 23 when the Regents next
Last Tuesday the plant exten-
sion committee discussed the
plans. From there the plans are
scheduled to go to the Regents.
However, Smith said the plant
extension committee, composed of
the vice-presidents and Univer-
sity President, has not given fin-
al approval to the latest changes.
These changes were submitted by
the residential college faculty
planning committee and the exec-
utive committee of the literary
They call for the addition of
$350,000 in costs over the amount
removed in cuts taken after thle
last Regents' meeting. These ad-
ditions are mainly for excavating,
but not finishing more basement
The faculty requested the exca-
vation of the basements because
they feel that at some time in the
future donor money will be avail-
able to finish that space, and pro-
vide for a bookstore concession
and student government offices.
Smith said the plant extension
committee is awaiting final cost
estimates on these latest changes
from the architects. There will
not be final approval from the
committee until they have a
chance to review these figures.
The committee, therefore, will
not meet again on the college un-
til the architects have more in-
formation, Smith said.
The plant extension committee
is also reported to be considering
adding another floor of B unit
housing. They are said to be
awaiting reports on whether add-
ed students would bring in more
revenue than the expense of an-
other floor.

This campaign must now be
supplemented by a massive letter-
writing campaign aimed at the
AEC, promoters of the Michigan'
site declare.
"We have to let the AEC know
that Michigan will be mad if it
isn't selected," Rep. Weston E.
Vivian (D-Ann Arbor) says.
"This is a long-term capital in-
vestment. Michigan is notoriously
behind in getting its share of fed-
eral government research facili-
ties," he contended.
Vivian says the five other sites,;
especially in Sacramento, Calif.,
are "making a lot of noise" about
the AEC project. Their public re-
lations promotion through the
mass media is extensive, he noted.
Michigan's strategy for gaining
the site has never included thel
traditional political pressure tech-
nique of influence.
"We wouldn't be able to apply1
political pressure anyway," Vivian;

But Gen. Lewis B. Hershey, di-
rector of the Selective Service
system, said a lottery was used
during World War II and "it just
didn't meet things."
Appearing with Hershey on the
ABC radio-television program "Is-
sues and Answers," Kennedy call-
ed for a general congressional
study of the Selective Service
system with particular emphasis
on the feasibility of a lottery. He
said "I feel that the present!
system provides inequality, pro-
vides a lack of certainty."
He said that under his concep-
tion of a lottery system when a
person reaches age 18 or 19 he
would register with his draft board
and after passing mental and
physical examinations would then
receive a number.
A drawing would be held and all
the numbers picked. Those drawn
first would be drafted first.

Hershey said he would welcome
a congressional investigation of
the draft "because that would'in-
sure they know more about what
the problems are."
Hershey called a lottery "some-
thing that if you have the same
kind of people at a given time
you can decide priority amongst
them," but where there is great
diversity there will be inequality,
he said.
Kennedy and Hershey clashed

over the senator's suggestion that
the pool of men eligible for the
draft be handled on a national
basis rather than state by state.
"You are drafting married men
in some states while you haven't
reached the bottom of the pool
in the others," Kennedy said.
Differences between the type of
men available in different states,
Hershey said, "is one of the costs

Massachusetts run their business."

been confiscated because word had
not reached police soon enough of
the school administration's change
of mind to permit its distribution.
"I find it appalling, particularly
in view of Goldberg's remarks
about the right of protest and
First Amendment freedoms," Allen
J.Zurkin, leader of a student
peace group, said yesterday of the
Brandeis administration.
Goldberg, head of the United
States delegation to the United
Nations, spoke first at a senior
breakfast and said "demonstra-
tions are all right as long as they
do not disrupt the presentation of
an idea."
David Finkle said he and other
students were putting up posters
on trees and buildings on campus
when they were stopped by the
Four of the students said they
were threatened with arrest and
quoted the police as calling the
confiscated literature "incitement
to riot."
Some 400 seniors and graduate
students were about to enter an
amphitheater to receive their de-
grees and hear Goldberg speak
again, when they learned what
had happened to the literature.
The seniors fell out of line en
masse and refused to enter the
amphitheater until the school ad-
ministration permitted the litera-
ture, protesting Goldberg's ap-
pearance, to be passed out to the
commencement audience.
An administration spokesman
said the literature was confiscated
through a misunderstanding. He
said the school and the seniors
involved had agreed to allow the
students to hand out literature at
the entrance to the campus, not
on it.
"Then the students inferred
from Ambassador Goldberg's re-
marks at the breakfast, that it
would be all right to hand out
literature at the amphitheater en-
trance. But in the meantime the
campus police had been told to
allow no distributing on campus,"
he said.
Zurkin denied that the students
had made any such agreement.

"The more you speak out and
the more you act, the more you are
going to discover that you are
lending courage to a surprising
number of people whose feelings
will come to the surface in re-
sponse to yours," Humphrey said.
The Vice-President was booed by
the demonstrators at the end of
his address. Earlier the pickets
had shouted "Heil Humphrey!"
After Humphrey received his
honorary degree, there was a
burst of applause as the pickets
marched out of the stadium.
It prompted MSU President John
Hannah to tell the crowd of 30,000
"I am sure the applause is for the
Vice-President and not for the
diversions." The audience then
applauded Hannah.
Humphrey said "those who op-
pose the majority" are sure to
collect bruises, but I have found
that the best remedy for a bruise
is to collect a few more.bYou for-
get the pain of the first blow.
"Those who dissent," he con-
tinued, "are more a part of this
land and more a source of its
strength than are all of the multi-
tude who join in silence, no matter
how vast they may seem."
He referred to the American
serviceman as a "peacemaker . .
a lifesaver."
"I have seen these brave men
perform acts of compassion that
would be the marvel of any peace-
ful society," Humphrey said.
Humphrey told the audience,

EAST LANSING (M)-The editor'

move Michigan State University
President John Hannah from his
post as chairman of the U.S. Civil
Rights Commission.
Hannah refused to take a public
stand on a proposed East Lansing!

tion housing ordinance, said James
Harrison, who also is chairman of
the East Lansing Democratic Club.
Harrison made his charges in a
letter to the President Friday.

He added, "I feel a sense of
concern and of involvement among
our younger people,"
"Measure your progress by
whether those you help-those
who have known in their lives
nothing but despair and defeat-
by whether they can begin to have

they can begin to find themselves

Humphrey said.

The ordinance was defeated by
a 3-2 vote of the East Lansing
City Council a week ago. While
other concerned persons appeared,
Harrison said, Hannah did not.
"It seems to me Harrison just
doesn't know what he is talking
about," Hannah said today.
"I have made my position clear
on every conceivable platform-in
East Lansing, Lansing and in
many other places around the
country," he added.
"I was not asked to appear be-
fore the council. If I had been
asked I would have considered
appearing as a private citizen. But
it would have been most improper
for me to appear as president of
the university or as chairman of
the Civil Rights Commission," he
The ordinance was drafted and
recommended by the East Lansing
Human Relations Commission.
It was supported by the East
Lansing Democratic Club, The
League of Women Voters, most of
the city's clergy, "several eminent
MSU social scientists, Gov. George
Romney and Democratic guberna-
torial candidate Zolton F'erency
(both of whom live in East Lan-
sing)," Harrison said, adding:
"John Hannah would not public-
ly take a position on this im-
portant local problem. The man
who has chaired U.S. Civil Rights
Commission investigations in Mis-
sissippi and other places would
not give his support, which we
desperately needed."
Harrison said Hannah's reason
for not taking a stand was that
"he has a long-standing policy of
noninterference in local affairs."
