of the war to the bombing of
Hanoi and Haiphong.
News of the bombings made
huge headlines throughout Europe
but there was no immediate of-
ficial or editorial comment. In
New Delhi, Indian Foreign Min-
ister Swaran Singh expressed
"deep concern and distress" over,
the attacks.
As for the European Commun-

ist bloc and the Soviet Union,
they appear to fear some sort of
showdown will develop from U.S.
actions which would put them in
a most uncomfortable spot. The
developments come at a time when
there had been cautious ap-
proaches between the United
States and Soviet bloc nations.
Direct attacks on Hanoi . and
Haiphong and the possibility of
interdicting shipping into North
Viet Nam could impel Moscow and
its bloc to rally strongly behind
a "fraternal" nation under fire.
This, in turn, could sacrifice what-
ever advantages there may have
been to the Western world in the
many palpable divisions among
Communist countries.
The actions might move the
Chinese, too, to some sort of re-
sponse. Haiphong - the name
means "sea fortress"-is less than
100 miles from China's Kwanksi
Province. The port looks out east-
ward toward the highly sensitive
Red Chinese military zones in the

of .Decision"' He Says;
Discusses Rights Bill
Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON-Senator Philip
A. Hart (D-Mich) said yesterday
that the decision to bomb the
dock area of Haiphong and areas
near Hanoi was "really a tactical
decision (about which) only a
handful of people have the infor-
mation to make a judgment."
In military terms, he added, "I
can't say it's a major departure
from what we've been doing, pro-,
vided we're choosing our targets
in a controlled manner.
'I don't know if it was correct
to bomb Hanoi and Haiphong, and
I'm sure the President doesn't
know either. All we can say is
that we'll know someday," Hart
"It boils down to vwhether t he
military advantages of the step-
ped-up bombing are greater than
the political disadvantages. of
such an escalation. the attitude
the Red Chinese, the North Viet-
namese and the Russians will take,
the attitude the rest of the world
will take, and so on," he declared.
"Although it's impolitic to say
so," Hart commented, "I suspect
that the rest of the world's atti-
tude will depend largely on
whether we succeed at our objec-
tive rather than how crudely we,
do so."
Hart spoke late yesterday after-
noon to a group of university stu-
dents working here as summer in-
terns in congressional and execu-
tive branch offices.
"I'm not an expert on Viet
Nam," the senator added, "al-
though some days in the Senate
I think I'm surrounded by them.
I have a hunch, though, that x. e
would be better off today if w e
had stayed out of Viet Nam.
"But that's largely a 'so-what'
attitude a little like the man on'
the runaway horse," Hart con-
tinued. "It's not constructive to
tell him how foolish he was to get
on. The constructive suggestion is
to tell him how to get off-and
that's much more difficult."

Associated Press.
Robert Pisarski, the board's chief trial examiner, also ruled
that the suburban North Dearborn Heights School District vio-

a five-day teachers' strike June 2.
It is the mediation board's first unfair labor practices ruling

Pisarski held evaluation of curriculum, scheduling of classes,

Brennan Reiterates
Board's Opposition
To Branch Operations
The State Board of Education
yesterday approved expanding the
Sault Ste. Marie branch of Mich-
igan Technological University,
which presently offers only the
first three undergraduate years, to
a four-year degree-granting in-
The board also approved a pro-
gram .leading to independence of
the branch within a six year per-
iod. Michigan Technological Uni-
versity is expected to ask the state
Legislature for authorization and
funds towards an autonomous
Sault branch.
Representatives of the univer-
sity said they hope that the auto-
nomy can be granted osmetime be-
tween 1968 and 1972. This action
would bring to 12 the number of
four-year state-supported insti-
tutions of higher learning.
The board's decision on the
Sault branch was based on an ad-
visory committee recommendation
made last October that the branch
be expanded beginning this fall.
Thomas J. Brennan, board pres-
ident, said that one consideration
in the Sault decision was the fact
that the board has "clearly stated
its opposition to additional uni-
versity branches and its desire
that those which do exist should
become autonomous in the near
Thisstatement could very easily
have an effect on the University's
Flint branch. The question of dis-
putes over whether the Flint
branch should remain under Uni-
versity administration or be grant-
ed autonomy was not raised. How-
ever, the Sault decision may pre-
sage a potential board policy to
convert all branches of the present
state colleges and universities to
autonomous units


This is the start of a six-floor administrative office building rising on Maynard Street on the south side of the Student Activities Bldg.
The 65,000-square-foot building will house the presidential and vice-presidential offices when the present Administration Bldg. is turn-
ed over to the literary college. The move is part of an effort to remove administrative offices from the central campus area.
