letter and told the senator in
substance, "It was a mistake and I
regret it."
Apology Confirmed
Fulbright, who joined in the
Senate discussion of the incident,
confirmed the apology.
The Arkansas Democrat said the
CIA head told him that he "was
sorry and regretted the letter and
that he didn't really feel that way
about me," as the letter said.
His own reaction, Fulbright said,
was that, "I was glad to hear
that." Otherwise, he said, the "in-
cident speaks for itself and I have
no other comment on the matter."

Senate Democratic Leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana called it "a
most serious matter," and express-
ed hope all senators "would take
cognizance of it."
The editorial was titled "Brick-

with the Senate's side-tracking of
an effort by Fulbright to gain a
role for the Senate Foreign Rela-

SAN FRANCISCO-The Coast Guard and Navy may end
their search at nightfall today for the missing DC-3 aircraft
carrying Brig. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell and two companions.
A spokesman said the search will be discontinued if noth-
ing is found to warrant further search.
Navy and Coast Guard ships have searched over thousands
of square miles of ocean since the plane vanished Sunday. No
trace of it has been found.
BALTIMORE-Gangs of white youths began roving neigh-
borhoods surrounding a park in southeast Baltimore last night,
shortly after a National States Rights party rally broke up.
Police reported some forays into surrounding Negro neigh-
borhoods and several Negroes were chased by mands of whites.
Police said they had arrested a number of persons as they
tried to disperse the gangs, which were knocking over garbage
cans, running across lawns and generally being disorderly.
At the rally, the third at the park in four days, some 500 per-
sons heard speakers exhort them to stand up for the "white
man's rights."
LONDON - The British government approved yesterday
plans for a price freeze backed by law, and refused to bend un-
der union demands for relaxation of a wage standstill.
Reactions to the decisions, reported taken at a cabinet
meeting, were harsh from both business and labor. Both sides
continued demanding concessions in the austerity program
organized by Prime Minister Harold Wilson to protect the pound..
John Davis, director general of the Confederation of Brit-
ish Industry, said his organization would not support a standstill
policy unless "unacceptable and unworkable" parts of it were
TOKYO-The Japanese foreign ministry confirmed yester-
day that visiting Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko had
declined a request that the Soviet Union try to help end the
fighting in Viet Nam.
"We suggested that the Soviet Union use its influence with
North Viet Nam to stop the fighting," Kinya Nilseki, foreign
ministry spokesman, told a news conference.
"Gromyko replied that the Soviet Union was not directly in-
volved in the Viet Nam dispute and therefore had no intention of
getting involved in the question of bringing peace in Viet Nam."
PROF. ARTHUR G. HANSEN, chairman of the department
of mechanical engineering, has been appointed dean of engineer-
ing at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
The announcement of his appointment came yesterday from
the University System of the Georgia Board of Regents.
Hansen will begin teaching at Georgia Tech on Oct. 1.
PROF. RUSSELL A. SMITIl of the Law School was ap-
pointed head of a new committee to "seek out better methods"
of relations between public institutions and their employes.
The announcement came from Gov. George Romney yes-
terday, as municipal employes in Grand Rapids were voting on
whether or not to strike, and city employes in Lansing had just
ended a walkout.
Also on the board is Prof. Ronald W. Haughton, co-director
of the University-MSU Institute of Industrial and Labor Rela-

The 14th annual art conference and regional exhibition, sponsored by the University extension service, opened yesterday. One of
the programs in the conference (pictured above) featured portrait painter Helen Van Wyk. Miss Van Wyk chose a subject out of the au-
dience and proceeded to paint his portrait, explaining as she went along the many things that go into painting a portrait. The exhibi-
tion will run through August 12, in the Rackham galleries.

Election To
Fill Place on
State Board
Voters To Choose
Two Members for
Board of Education
There are two vacant seats on
the State Board of Education
which will be filled after the
November elections.
The terms of Donald Thurber
and Dr. Leon Fill have expired.
There are eight members onthe
board and at the present time all
are Democrats. The Republicans
hope to take advantage of the
two expired terms in an effort to
place Republican people on the
Charles Orlebeck, special advisor
to the Governor, said that the Re-
publican candidates at the pre-
convention stage are James O'Neil,
an executive with Ford Motor
Company; LeRoy Augunstine,
Chairman of the Bio-Physics de-
partment at Michigan State Uni-
versity, and Robert Cotton, owner
and director of several nursing
homes in Jackson.
O'Neil was a former member of
the Board under the old, four-
member system. Both O'Neil and
Augunstine were former candi-
dates for the Senate seat which
was eventually filled by the ap-
pointment of Sen/ Robert Griffin
(R-Mich) to the date Patrick M-
Namara's seat.
Both Fill and Thurber will seek
re-nomination. Fill said that heR
had been urged by fellow mem-
bers of the board to seek re-
A Lansing source indicated that
there might be some controversy
over Thurber's nomination by the
Democratic party because of
Thurber's opposition to the ap-
pointment of Ira Polley as super-
intendent of public construction..
After Polley's appointment Thur-
ber said that he couldn't go along
with the appointment and many
members of the board expressed
their displeasure at his stand.
However, Neil Staebler, Demo-
cratic National Committeeman for
Michigan, said that it is "usually
the case that if an incumbent
seeks re-nomination to his post
he will get it." He added that this
was not a formal law but .rather
"the political rule."
The Board, prior to its re-
definition as a result of the change
in the state constitution in 1962,
consisted of four members who
were appointed rather than elect-
ed. It was responsible for the lead-
ership and general supervision
over all public education under
the auspices of the Superintendent
of Public Instruction.
The present state Board of Edu-
cation consists of eight members
who are elected in the regular
November elections. It is respon-
sible for the planning and. co-
ordination of higher education in
the state, rather than having di-
rect jurisdiction over the institu-
tions of higher education.
