Bidii al
For Murphy
Collins Announces He
Wants Democratic
Regent Nomination
Regent Irene Murphy officially
announced yesterday that she will
run for re-election to the Board of
John J. Collins, president of
Wayne National Life Insurance
Company, +and former chairman
of the State Democratic Party
from 1962-63, also announced of-
ficially that he will campaign for
the Democratic nomination to the
Board of Regents. He made this
intention clear two weeks ago
when he wrote a letter to prom-
inent members of the party ex-
pressing his desire for the post.
He has been campaigning for the
nomination since that time.
Collins is seeking Regent Carl
Brablec's seat. The terms of Mrs.
Murphy and Brablec, both Demo-
crats, expire December 31 but Bra-
blec will not seek re-nomination.
Mrs. Murphy said "I make my-
self available only because of the
critical need at this time for con-
tinuity ... We Regents have gone
on double-time in our complex
task of searching for a replace-
ment to President Harlan H.;
Hatcher who retires next year. We
will be midway in this sensitive
rocess when my term will expire.
The wisdom we use in the selection
will determine the leadership of
the University for the next 15
During her term of office, Mrs.
Murphy has consistently spoken
fdr low tuition, control of students'
living costs; nondiscrimination;
public meetings; increased stu-
dent wages; an "open" campus for
speakers, faculty, students; a sin-
cere respect for expressions of
conscience, including dissent; and
efforts to break up a massive
campus into small, personalized
student units.
"This climate of freedom," said
Mrs. Murphy, "attracts exciting,
creative faculty and students, as
well as gifts and grants from
sponsors who wish to invest in our
creative ability."
Collins said that if nominated
and elected he would work "to
provide more student housing and
provide it as inexpensively as pos-
Collins added that he could ad-
vocate a closer relationship be-
tween the University, the Legisla-
trthe State Board of Education
and the Governor. He said that
' the, University has "not fitted into
the scheme of things" in the plan
for coordination between the
state's institutions of higher edu-
cation, and that the University
"has to be sensitive to the Legis-
lature and the Governor in the
Collins said the University "has
got to play- a structured role" in
the state and not worry so much
about autonomy, or it may loose
even more of its autonomy.
"The Board of Regents must
maintain its autonomy over its
faculty, educational program and
its philosophy of education," but
should recognize it must work with
other branches of the state gov-
ernment,"' he added.
Collins said, "The University has
got to take a leadership role-it
has been all too often a "reluctant
partner" with other "arms of state

Draft Calls




WASHINGTON (P)- The need
for military replacements in Viet
Nam sent draft calls escalating
The Pentagon announced the
September call of 31,300 is being
raised to 37,300, and set an Oc-
tober draft of 46,200, highest for
any month since the Korean war.
The boost in September require-
ments was attributed toa reduc-
tion in estimated Army enlist-
ments for the month, based on
the most recent enlistment data.
The October call is the highest
since the 53,000 sought in May
1963, near the end of the Korean
war. Peak calls during that con-
flict reached 80,000.

Spokesman said, however, a sea-
sonal factor is involved. In the
fall, many young men cease vol-
unteering for service because of
college enrollment, which in turn
exempts them from the draft.
All inductees in both the Sep-
tember and October calls are to
go to the Army.
There have been unofficial re-
ports that the U.S. force in Viet
Nam would approach 400,000 by
the end of this year.
With some 283,000 men now in
Viet Nam, the armed services al-
ready have surpassed their an-
nounced strength goal of 3,093,000
a year ahead of time and indica-





tions are that the buildup will
Just how big the increase will be
is not certain. Deputy Secretary
of Defense Cyrus R. Vance said
recently "we do not know yet"
what the ceiling on military man-
power will be.
The Viet Nam war, of course, is
the major determining factor on
future military levels.
The 3 million-plus level was not
scheduled to be reached until next
June 30, but the mark was reach-
ed and slightly surpassed by June
30 of this year.
As of June, 30, the Army stood
34,000 short of its projected level
of 1,199,764. The Marines had
261,659 compared with a goal of
Both the Navy and Air Force
have gone over their stated goals
of 727,873 and 853,359, respective-
ly, by several thousand men.
The House Armed Services Corn-
mittee, meanwhile, deferred until
early next year further hearings
on administration and operation
of the draft law.
In announcing the a c t i o n,
Chairman L. Mendel Rivers (D-
SC) said the committee would
have "very positive recommenda-
tions" for the new Congress early
in 1967.
The committee recently held six
days of public hearings dealing'
with complaints of inequities in
administration of the draft law.
Rivers said the committee wants
to wait until President Johnson
and the recently established Na-
tional Advisory Commission on
Selective Service makes recom-
"It appears abundantly evident
to me that we must continue to
have a draft law for the foresee-
able future, but I am not certain
that the present draft law is
working as well as it could," Riv-
ers said in a statement.

CHICAGO-INTERLAKE STEEL Corp. announced last night
a price increase in sheet and strip steel, becoming the 11th firm
to raise its prices since an increase initiated Tuesday by Inland
Steel Co.
Interlake chairman G. Findley Griffiths said a base price
increase of 15 cents per hundred pounds for prime grade hot
rolled strip, hot rolled sheets and cold rolled sheets would be-
come effective Aug. 10.
NASHVILLE, TENN.-FORMER Gov. Buford Ellington won
the Democratic nomination for governor of Tennessee last night.
His opponent, John Jay Hooker Jr., conceded when Ellington

BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA - President Juan Carlos
Ongania moved last night to end the turmoil within the state
universities by promising to restore their autonomy. However,
he set no timetable.
Ongania made the announcement at his first news confer-
ence since his military regime ousted the civilian government of
President Arturo Illia five weeks ago.
A NOON RALLY ON THE DIAG will be the main feature of
today's International Days of Protest activities commemorating
the bombing of Hiroshima. A puppet show will be presented dur-
ing the rally.
University students' Ken Fireman and Rich Gordon will dis-
cuss the Vietnamese war and Monday's picketing of the Dow
Chemical Co. in Midland. A silent vigil by Voice members and
others observing Hiroshima Day will be held from 10 a.m. until
noon on the Diag as well.
GOV. GEORGE ROMNEY, at the Governor's Conference on
Mental Health, said he will seek a supplemental mental health
appropriation from the Legislature. The additional funds are
needed to meet the rapidly increasing state services in mental
health. More money is also needed to operate new buildings at
Plymouth State Home and Training School because they were
completed ahead of schedule.
However, Charles Orlebeck, special advisor to the governor,
said that the additional funds "will have little or no effect" on
the University's mental health facilities. He said that the sup-
plemental appropriation was requested to improve the state hos-
pitals and training schools which had expanded more rapidly
than the Legislature had anticipated when drawing up the
speak tonight before the Ann Arbor City Democratic Party meet-
ing. Title of his speech will be "Issues Facing the 89th Congress."
Vivian has been in Washington completing hearings held by
the House Natural Resources Subcommittee of the Committee on
Government Operations of which he is a member.

Legality of ,Mtate Aid to Uhurch
Supported Schools .Examined

The United States Supreme
Court will soon have a chance to
make an important decision on
the question of the constitution-
ality of certain legislative aid to
church-supported schools.
The court will be asked to re-
view a Maryland Court of Appeals
decision in which state matching
fund grants to three colleges were

declared unconstitutional.
The court ruled that the grants
violated the First Amendment to
the U.S. Constitution: "Congress
shall make no law respecting an
establishment of religion, or pro-
hibiting the free exercise thereof."

states have made many laws that
affect church-affiliated schools.
In June, the Michigan Legis-

versities, including church-affil-,

The court said "there is little{
controversy over the facts in any
of the cases, rather the dispute is
as to the legal effects of the
The court found there was gen-
eral agreement on factors that de-
termine whether an institution is
secular or religious. These were:
1) The purpose of the college;
2) The college's personnel-stu-
dents, f a c ul t y, administrators,
board members--and any religious
requirement of them or any con-

trol over them exercised by a re-
ligious body;
3) The college's relationship1
with religious bodies in regard to
aid, ownership and affiliation;
4) The place of religion in the
college's program, in regard to the
character, extent and requirements
of religious observation.
In upholding aid to one of the
colleges, the court said the col-
lege's "stated purposes in relation
to religion are not of a fervent,
intense, or passionate nature, but
based largely upon its historical
background... "
The court added that the gov-
erning board of that college was
not controlled by a religious body,
and a church supplies only 2.2 per
cent of its budget.
In one case where it invalidated
aid, it said the college was "relig-
iously oriented," advertised "our,
philosophy is a Christian philoso-
phy" and had religious require-
ments for its board members.
A dissenting judge said Mary-
land had a 180-year tradition of
aid to these private schools.; He
said the four colleges offer edu-
cation comparable to that at other
institutions and served the public
need in doing so.
