Regents O.K.
Total Budget

Receive $2 Million
Foundation Grant for
Public Health Addition
A month after the start of the
fiscal year, the Regents gave final
approval to a $186,570,629 total
operating budget at their meeting
The action gives the University
$18 936,239 more in the budget
than it had last year. Along with
the general funds portion of the
budget, $77,883 516, accepted last
month, the budget includes an ex-
pendable restricted fund of $64,-
444,000 and an auxiliary activities
fund of $39,376,813, accepted yes-
Kellogg Grant
In other action yesterday the
Regents accepted a grant of $2
million from the W. K. Kellogg
Foundation. The money is to sup-
port an addition to the public
health school, for which additional
funds are being sought from the
Total cost of the project has
been estimated at $7 million, Dean
Myron Wegman of the public
health school said the expansion
of teaching and research facilities
which the addition will make pos-
sible are urgently needed.
The public health school is an
ticipating a 40 per cent increase
in enrollment by 1975, with a
total of 525 students expected. The
project will include the construc-
tion of a three-story addition
along the east side of the present
building and a new five or six
story structure on the south side
of Washington Heights.
International Center
The Regents also accepted a
grant of $1.1 million from the
Kellogg Foundation to modernize
the building of the W. K. Kellogg
Institute of Graduate and Post-
graduate Dentistry.
The Regents also made M.
Robert B. Klinger director of the
International Center, of which he
has been acting director for the
past two years.
Klinger had not been named
director before now, according to
Vice-President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler, because of a
study his office undertook "to
determine if the functions of the
International Center might be re-
structured along with other inter-
national programs of the Univer-
After reviewing the study, Cutler
decided that the role of the cen-
ter in counseling foreign students
justifies its position as a separate
unit with a director.
Walter Retires
Yesterday's Regents meeting was
the last for Erich Walter as Uni-
versity Secretary, and assistant to
the president.
Next week Prof. Herbert Hilde-
brant of the speech department
will take over Walter's role. Wal-
ter, a University graduate, has
been on the University's staff for,
47 years.
A professor in rhetoric, he was
associate dean of the literary
college and dean of students dur-
ing his career,
In other action, the Regents'
changed the name of Cedar Bend
housing, making it Vera Baits
Opening in the fall, Baits hous-
ing is located on North Campus,
between Baits and Cedar Bend
drives, near the music school. Uni-

versity President Harlan Hatcher
said yesterday the name Cedar
Bend had been informally adopted
during planning of the housing
and had stuck to the project.
However, Baits housing is ac-
tually on Baits Drive and not
Cedar Bend Drive. Hatcher noted
that during construction several
truck drivers had gotten lost, be-
lieving the project to be on Cedar
Bend, and that residents of Cedar
Bend Drive had petitioned the
University to change the develop-
ment's name. Vera Baits is the
name of a late Regent.
Chrysler Grant
The Regents also accepted a
budget and bids for the construc-
tion of the Center for Continuing
Engineering Education building on
North Campus.
The Chrysler Corporation is pro-
viding a grant of $1.250,000 for
the facility, which is budgeted at
$1.4 billion.

By The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO-A Coast Guard plane searching the Pa-
cific for some trace of a DC-3 aircraft that vanished Sunday
with Brig. Gen. Joseph W. Stilwell and two others aboard, re-
ported sighting debris last night.
The C-130 aircraft notified the nearby Coast Guard cutter
Taney of its discovery and the cutter launched a search of the
area, 400 miles southwest of San Francisco. The plane returned
to San Francisco.
A Coast Guard spokesman said the search, originally sched-
uled to conclude at nightfall yesterday, will continue at least
through today or until the debris is located and evaluated.
ORURU, Bolivia-The American U-2 plane lost over South
America, with its pilot presumably unconscious, was reported
found last night in burned and scattered pieces on the hills of
west central Bolivia.
It apparently had crashed Thursday afternoon from great
altitude, shattering the body of the pilot and strewing wreck-
age over a wide area. American and Bolivian officials said
identification of the pilot, Capt. Robert D. Hickman, 32, of
Alexandria, La., was found in the wreckage area.
The crash site is near the town of Llanquera, a remote
area with few access roads. The pilot's identity card was
brought to Oruruo by farmers, who trudged across the hills
overnight with first reports of the crash.
The word was flashed to the American embassy and the
U.S. Information Service in La Paz and to search headquarters in
the Panama Canal Zone. The embassy sent a group to the area
to confirm the reports of the farmers.
SEOUL, South Korea-A South Korean navy patrol boat
engaged in a 30-minute gun battle with nine North Korean ves-
sels last night off the east coast of Korea, possibly sinking one
of them, the Navy announced yesterday.
The clash took place only four miles south of the eastern
end of the military demarkation line and about seven miles off
the coast near the small fishing port of Daejin, the Navy said
The South Korean vessel received about 30 rounds of ma-
chinegun fire and four sailors were slightly injured during the
gun battle, but the damage was not serious, it added.
The clash occurred when nine armed Communist vessels, of
the 100-ton class and disguised as South Korean fishing vessels
operating south of the truce line, the Navy said. The South
Korean fishing vessels did not suffer any damage, and were con-
tinuing their operations in the area yesterday morning, it added.
LANSING-A grass-roots fight for control of the Michigan
Republican Party reached the governor's office yesterday.
Gov. George Romney stepped into precinct delegate con-
tests in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties, urging party
members to vote against the conservative slate in one district
and to follow the instructions of the party leadership in others.
It followed a declaration of "political" war by State GOP
Chairman Elly Peterson against the John Birch Society last
Birchers filed in large numbers for precinct delegate posts
in the tri-county Detroit area, she said, in a "blatant grab for
political power."

Five white men were indicted
yesterday by a Baltimore, Md.,
grand jury on charges of con-
spiring to riot, rioting and related
activity growing out of white su-
premacist rallies.
Shortly afterwards, a Baltimore
Circuit Court judge enjoined the
National States Rights party from
holding any further rallies or dem-
onstrations in public places.
The indicted men said they
would abide by the injunction
until Monday.
"We haven't got a damn choice.
We have been ordered," said
Richard B. Norton, Maryland co-
ordinator for the party.
State Atty. Charles E. Moylan
Jr. asked the indictments by the
grand jury, which met in special
session, and Maryland Atty. Gen.
Thomas B. Finan sought the in-

junction in moves intended to
avert more rallies which have in-
flamed racial feelings in the city.
The supremacist group had
staged three rallies this week, the
last ending with roving white
gangs looking for trouble in Negro
neighborhoods, and had planned
another rally last night.
Sporadic trouble broke out
Thursday night after segregation-
ist speakers at the party rally in
a southside park stirred a crowd
of 1,000 mostly teenagers with
criticisms of the U.S. Supreme
Csurt and Baltimore Mayor Theo-
dore R. McKeldin.
The crowd, chanting, "We hate
niggers," broke into smaller groups
after the rally and roamed through
Negro neighborhoods. One young
Negro was beaten. Seven white
persons were charged with dis-
orderly conduct and three Negroes
with carrying weapons.
Police patrolled the troubled
areas into the morning hours after
gaining control of the situation
Thursday night.
Meanwhile, Negro leaders in
Amityville, N.Y., where pitched
fighting broke out between Negro
youths and police Thursday night,
said they knew violence could oc-
cur in this Long Island community.
Seven persons were arrested in
the disturbances, which broke out
after county and city officials ad-
dressed about 350 persons at a
rally in a shopping center. The
rally, sponsored by an antipoverty
agency, was called in an attempt
to better community relations,
Cars were stoned and windows
were smashed in sporadic fighting
which lasted about three hours.
Police at this point sealed off a
16-block section.
One Negro leader said the
trouble involved only about 30
youths and that the incident might'
lead to some good if people would
