ublic Act

124: Dispute Creates a Space Problem

"The Literary College is bound
to suffer from the lack of space
on the University campus the
most," a University official re-
cently explained.
He was refering to the lack of
new buildings being planned at
the University, as a result of the
squabble between the University's
Regents and the state legislature
over Act 124.
Dean William Haber of the
Literary College expressed con-
cern over the hold up of new
buildings. He said, "A long delay
can adversly affect the Literary
College's needs for general class
and office space." He warned that
we've used up whatever slack "re-

mained" in the utilization of class
and office space.
Five out of the seven projects
whose plans are being affected
because of the differences over
Public Act 124 are in the Literary
The state legislature recently re-
newed the provisions of P.A. 124
for another year. The legislature
feels more control must be estab-
lished over the tremendous
amounts of money which go to
the state universities building
The University's Regents have
decided not to comply with the
state legislature in this case, be-
cause they regard it as a violation
of their constitutional autonomy.
Many of the planned building

projects of the University have
been delayed as a result.
John J. McKevitt, assistant to
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur J. Pierpont, ex-
plained that not all the delay in
building is a result of the dif-
ferences between the University's
Regents and the state legislature.
There is no way of telling whether
the state legislature would have
withheld planning funds for some
University buildings if such a dif-
ference of opinion had not oc-

tecture building, heating plant ex-

tions, Science building, Residence

Computer Center, currently affect-
ed by the difference over Public
Act 124.
All had received authorize'ions
for preliminary plans or studies
which indicate site, scale, and
slight estimations of costs before
the passage of the act. But in
only one case, the extension of the
Heating Plant, has the state legis-
lature made an appropriation for
completed plans under the new

ments, and expected growth pat-
The state legislature's attempt
to control the University's build-
ing projects is not a novel occur-

ence. The state Controller's office
has always had some degree of
control. The University has pre-
viously submitted its preliminary
plans to the Controller. He would
examine estimated cost and char-
acteristics of the project, and give
it the required approval.
The state legislature, upon the
approval would then make an
appropriation for complete plans
to the University.
The Controller was first given
planning authority in 1963, when
planning funds were given direct-
ly to his office, rather than the
University. He then had the dis-
cretion as to whether he would
release planning money to the
University or to the Controller's
office which had the power to

decide the planning agent for the
The Controller's office had
given the money directly to the
University and thus no signifi-
cant changes in procedure were
made. The only difference under
the new provision was that there
were more frequent informational
exchanges and verifications be-
tween the University and the Con-
troller's office, McKevitt ex-
With the 1965 act, the legisla-
ture sends all its appropriations
to the Controller's office to com-
plete the plans. This is part of an
attempt by a new state legislature
to increase its control over the
state colleges and universities.
The legislature has given many

indications of its desire to increase
its control over the University.
They have required more detailed
budget hearings on the Univer-
sity's allotment from the state's
General Fund. Theyrreceived a
clearer picture of where and why
money was to be'spent as a result.
The legislature also attempted to
control University's freedom to
change tuition rates which subse-
quently failed.
The office of the state Con-
troller could, under the present
plan, exercise power over the fu-
ture development of the Univer-
sity. By not allowing plans to be
drawn for a project, or portion
of it, it could limit development
of certain areas of the University.
This is the major complaint of
the University's Regents.

U.S. Agency
Reveals New 4 1 ir igall i1y
Drug Administration_

Officials To Exanine
College Campuses
A special corps of undercover
agents is going into action on
college campuses and elsewhere to
combat the illicit manufacture,!
sale and use of the mind-expand-
ing drug LSD, the Food and Drug
Administration revealed this week.
FDA Commissioner Dr. James
L. Goddard said LSD has been
under intensive investigation by
medical researchers since it was
discovered by accident in 1943,
and no legitimate medical use has
ever been found for it.
Asked what he thought of the
widely publicized claim that LSD
"expands" the mind and makes
possible a sort of mystical spiritual
experience, Goddard snapped
"Pure bunk."
"It's an extremely dangerous
drug than can precipitate serious
psychiatric illness or even suicide."
he added.
Goddard said no one really
knows how widespread the current
LSD fad is. "You hear loose talk
about 30 per cent of college stu-
dents using LSD, but I know of
no reliable data on the extent of
usage," he said. "That's one of
the things we're trying to find
out now."
Goddard said the FDA, together,
with the National Institute of
Mental Health, would attempt to
discover how widespread abuse of
LSD has become.
"Along with this will be an
educational effort aimed at col-
lege students and others who seem
to be particularly at risk, to try l
to acquaint them with the dan-I
gers and to counteract this dan-
gerous publicity that others have
put forth advocating the use of'
the drug for mystical experience,"
Goddard said.
He revealed that special inves-
tigators are being trained at the
University of California in Ber-
"We have 60 men working out
there now being trained as under-!
cover investigators. We have grad-
uated two previous classes and
there will be more brought into
the program after July 1.
Two states-California and Ne-t
vada-have already passed laws-
banning the manufacture, sale'
and use of LSD and have imposed
severe penalties on violators. The
Michigan Legislature also has a
bill pending final action next week
which would make possession or
sale of the drug a felony.

THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION has awarded grants

equal amount.
approved allocation of $289,756 in federal funds to 12 Michigan
colleges and universities to conduct programs aimed at solving
community problems. The funds are available under a section
of the Higher Education Act of 1965 to support community serv-

THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION urged the Legislature
recently to approve tuition grants for students attending private
colleges and universities in Michigan.
The estimated $3.3 million plan earlier this week drew fire
from The Detroit Council of Churches and The Jewish Com-
munity Council of Metropolitan Detroit, and support from the
Michigan Association of Private Colleges.
The Detroit church groups urged Gov. George Romney to
veto the tuition-grant plan, contending it violated the concept of
church-state separation.
The resolution by the Board of Education was unanimous.
It also called on the Legislature to "properly fund" the program.
The proposal now is in a conference committee for resolution
of differences between House and Senate versions. It would cover
an estimated 8,300 students in the first year.

ABOUT THE SAME PERCENTAGE of those registering for
the military draft are being classified now as conscientious ob-
jectors as during the Korean conflict and World War II, Selective
Service officials said yesterday.
The latest figures on convictions of draft-dodging charges
showed 242 during the year which ended June 30, 1965. This
compared to 202 in the previous year, 266 for the 1962-63 year,
290 in 1954-55 and a peak of 425 in 1953-54, the windup of Korea.
GOV. GEORGE ROMNEY said last night that any action to
establish a new medical college in Michigan before completion
of a State Board of Education study would be unwise.
"No one has the right individually to make such a major
decision based either upon the ambitions of a single institution
or the power and influence of lobbyists in Lansing," he said.
The Legislature is considering a bill that would establish a
State Osteopathic College Authority and, lawmakers say, commit
the state to support the proposed osteopathic college at Pontiac.

NEGROES ON THE MEREDITH MARCH through Mississippi walk past a heckler's sign that claims to picture Martin Luther King
at a Communist school. The marchers have been faced with more heckling as they get farther south.
Business Graduate Is in Demand

If Horatio Alger were alive to-
day, he'd be green with envy of
the business school graduate.
Alger, of course, went from rags
to riches in dozens of late 19th
century novels.
A. S. Hann, director of place-
ment for the University of Mich-
igan's Graduate School of Busi-
ness Administration, points out
that while today's business school
students may not start job hunt-
ing in rags, by Alger's standards
they come close to being "rich"
after their first month at work.
This spring, according to Hann,
starting salary offers to candi-
dates for the master of business
administration degree at Michigan
ranged above $1000 a month. The
median starting salary was $750-
a 36 per cent increase over the
$550 figure of five years ago, and
a 7 per cent hike over last year's
Higher starting salaries are a
reflection of stepped-up recruit-
ment of students. During the past
academic year 353 companies
scheduled 526 visits through the
University business school's place-
ment program. The number of
employer visits is up to 41 per
cent over 1961 (372) and 13 per
cent over 1965 (465).

Animosity Increases
As March Continues
To Southern Counties
Special To The Daily
GREENWOOD, Miss. - Evi-
dences of violence are rising as
wide animosity surrounding the
voter registration march increas-
ingly rises to the surface.
A sound truck played a Klu
Klux Klan song, "Go On North,
Nigger, If You Don't Like Our
Southern Ways." Children waved
Confederate flags as the- civil
rights marchers camesthrough.
Police Stop Cars
Last night police reportedly
stopped carloads of whites armed
with rifles within one block,
the marchers' tents.
Today a policeman prevented a
farmer from shooting at one of
the cars from the march. News-
men found a carton containing a
poisonous cotton mouth among
their gear.
James H. Meredith, wounded
during a voter registration march
in Mississippi on June 6, said yes-
terday that he would resume that
march next Wednesday "whether
I am strong enough or not," the
AP reported.
Out of Jail
Stokey Carmichael of SNCC is
out of jail on a $100 bail along
with Cordell Reagen, a fellow
SNCC worker, after their arrest
two days ago for trespassing. They
had been held for seven hours
after trying to erect a tent in the
school yard without authorization
from the local authorities.
Upon return to the march Car-
michael went back to the camp-
site after release and spoke at a
rally gathered there. He said that
"every county courthouse in Mis-
sissippi should be burned to get
rid of the fifth." He added that
"we are in the majority here but
everybody owns our neighborhood
except us. The only way we can
get justice is to have a black
sheriff. We want black power!"
He turned this into a chant and
the crowd of approximately 700
joined in.
Guard Reduced
Following the rally Mississippi
Gov. Paul Johnson announced
that he was cutting the march's
police guard from 20 patrolmen
to four. He said that "we are not
going to be in a position of wet
nursing a group of showmen."
However, regardless of this an-
nouncement, there was heavy po-
lice protection for the more than
400 in the march.
The march continued yesterday
from where it left off seven miles
north of Greenwood. Carmichael
and Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King,
the Southern Christian Leader-
ship Conference leader, led the
march today as CORE executive
Floyd McKissick left the march to
go to New York.
What Is Power?
King asked the people, "Do you
know what power is? Power is
the ability to make the power
structure say yes even when it
wants to say no. The way to do
this is to be voters."
