College Sets
Plan Details
The faculty planning commit-
tee for the residential college has
submitted specifications for the
proposed school's library and its
dining facilities, Associate Dean
Burton D. Thuma, residential col-
lege director, said yesterday.
Both the faculty planning com-
mittee and the student, advisory
group have been discussing the
nature of the facilities for the
past few months.
According to the specifications,
the library would be less than one-
third the size of the Undergrad-
uate Library.
The faculty committee has
planned for a library of 90,0001
volumes which could seat one-
third of the residential college en-
rollment. Three rooms for blind
students, an audio listening room,
four seminar rooms, and 12 group
study rooms are included in the li-
brary plan.
The library will be designed
along the lines of the UGLI, Dean
Thuma said.
The latest faculty committee
memorandum suggests that the
dining hall should be located in
the college center and should fos-
ter an atmosphere of intimacy by
way of size, decor and art objects.
In a third report distributed yes-
terday by the faculty committee,
tentative suggestions for the arch-
itectural planning of the "Social
Center" of the college were sub-
mitted. The report suggests that a
combination drugstore-type book-
store and snack bar-coffee shop, as
proposed by the student advisory
committee for the college, should
be on the ground floor for easy
access for the students.
Dean Thuma added 'that the
committee has begun to get back
questionnaires sent to the literary
college faculty to determine how
many faculty members would be
interested in teaching in the resi-I
dential college. He explained that,
although the questionnaires were
distributed only to the literary
college faculty, members of the
staffs of other schools might be
willing to teach part-time at the
residential college. Dean Thuma
asked that any interested facuty
members get in touch with him. I

State .Budget
To Be Outlined
LANSING () - Gov. George
Romney plans to present to the
Legislature today his 1965 state
budget - a blueprint expected to
call for approximately $800 mil-
lion in state spending.
The appropriation for higher
education will be included in the
request. Romney has indicated
that he will stick as close as he
possibly can to the requests sub-
mitted by the state-supported col-
leges and universities, which are
38 per cent higher than last year's
The budget will go to legislators

at between $75 million and $125

Group Debates Purpose
Of Student Legislature
The proposed Michigan Student Legislature was the topic of
much debate and conflict at the meeting of the executive committee
of the Michigan region of the United States National Student
Association held Sunday.
Barry Bluestone, '66, clashed with' Larry Glazer, chairman of
the Michigan region from Wayne State University, over the goals
of the proposed MSL.
Bluestone sees the MSL as a coalition of various student groups

Maddox Opens Defense.
In Civil Rights Case
ATLANTA (;P)-Attroneys defending Lester G. Maddox in a con-
tempt of court action contended yesterday that he has refused to
serve Negroes at his restaurant because of political belief, not
because of racial origin.
"His policy is not to serve integrationists, regardless of race,
color, religion or national origin," argued attorney William G.
That was the defense at the opening of a hearing before United
States Dist. Judge Frank A. Hooper who ordered Maddox to show
Owhy he should not be held in con-
tempt for violating an injunction.
Hooper was on a three-judge
panel that ordered Maddox to
comply with the 1964 Civil Rights
T acts Act last July.

working primarily at the state
level as a student lobby.
Student Assembly
Glazer, however, views the MSL
as an assembly of students inter-
ested in careers in politics. Unlike
Bluestone, Glazer sees the MSL
following the structure and work-
ings of the state Legislature.
Glazer envisions an organiza-
tion of delegates elected in cam-
pus elections which would pass
bills and submit them to the state
Legislature, as representing stu-
dent opinion.
Bluestone would rather see the
organization directly affect legis-
lation is several phases.
Publicity Campaign
Starting with a specific issue,
he said that the MSL should
sponsor a massive publicity cam-
paign. He suggested including such
organizations as, United Auto
Workers, veterans organizations
and political groups from left to
Second, Bluestone urged that
students attend committee ses-
sions, noting which legislators
support the given issue.
Third,. he asked that students
testify before committees giving
student views on the proposed
Finally, Bluestone asked for stu-
dent pickets in an attempt to in-
fluence the vote.
Budget Requests
Bluestone suggested that the
first issue attacked should be the,
budget requests by the state sup-
ported schools. He feels that this
area is of vital concern to the stu-
dents of the state-supported
If the campaign to affect the
budget requests is successfull,
Bluestone sees the activities of
the MSL expanding to include
work in the areas of a lowered
voting age requirement, primary
and secondary school education,
unemployment problems and pov-
With such an expansion, Blue-
stone sees that the MSL could
evolve into the type of organiza-
tion envisioned by Glazer.

House Hearings on
Measure To Begin
passed yesterday the billion dollar
Appalachia bill designed to pro-
duce jobs and raise living stan-
dards in the depressed mountain
country of eleven states.
President Lyndon B. Johnson
hailed the 62-22 vote approval as
providing "real encouragement to
that region."
House hearings on the $1.1 bil-
lion measure begin Wednesday,
and leaders there predict quick
approval to make this one of the
first major bills to go to the White
House this year.
Backed strongly by the Presi-
dent in his avowed drive to elim-
inate poverty, the Appalachia bill
was approved in the Senate last
year but died in the House.
Job Opportunities
The federal funds in the Appa-
lachia legislation are designed to
improve job opportunities and in-
come for the more than 15 million
persons living in the 165,000-
square mile region.
Their per capita income now Is
about $1400, or $500 below the
national average.
As defined in the bill, Appala-
chia includes 355 counties in the
11 states. Sponsors agree that not
all of these counties are poverty-
stricken, but say there are dis-
advantaged families in all of

But this was done only after
direct assurances were offered
from President Johnson and
Democratic leaders that subse-
quent legislation carrying plan-
ning funds for such programs
would be considered later in the
Also included are allotments for
hospital construction and main-
tenance, soil improvement, timber
development, strip mine reclama-
tion, water resources studies, vo-
cational education, and sewage
Democratic leaders pledged that
action would be taken later this
year to provide planning funds for
such programs. They said the
President would support this.
Initiated by Kennedy
The legislation is the product of
four years of study begun by
President John F. Kennedy soon
after he took office in 1961.
He had been especially impress-
ed by conditions in many parts
of West Virginia during his presi-
dential primary campaigning there
in thenspring of 1960.
Sponsors agree that the chief
problem in most of Appalachia is
the sharp decline in coal mining
jobs in recent years. But they
cite poor transportation facilities
as another important factor.
Administration experts have
said the total federal cost of the
Appalachia aid program, sched-
uled to last six years, may reach
$2 billion. The bill passed today
is the first installment.
The Senate outcome was a vic-
tory for Sens. Jennings Randolph
(D-WVa) and John S. Cooper
(R-Ky), co-sponsors and floor
managers of the bill.
Their states will be among the
chief beneficiaries.
