'Head Count
Attacked as
Educators Contend
Tax Reform Needed
Three members of the Stat
Board of Education yesterda
blasted Gov. George Romney'
budget requests for higher educa
tion, while much of the stat
Legislature remained noncommita
on the specifics of the governor's
1965-66 fiscal plan.
Board member Edwin Novak o
Flint condemned the governor's
system of using "head. count" t
determine higher education appro
priations, saying that considera
tions such as the higher cost o
graduate and prfessional pro-
grams should be taken into ac-
count as they have in the past.
Novak also noted that Romne3
has "talked fiscal reform for 3
months" but isn't willing to dc
anything about it now. He accused
the governor of "using the budget
as a political thermometer" in-
stead of simply as a budget.
Head Count Method
Former University Regent and
board member Donald M.D. Thur-
ber agreed with Novak that the
budget request "does not meet the
needs of higher education" and
that the "head count method is a
Very crude and inaccurate" way
to determine distribution of edu-
cation funds.
Thurber calledon the governor
to propose a tax reform plan that
will enable the governor, the Leg-
islature and the education board
to prepare a realistic education
budget in the near future. He call-
ed the present budget, which the
governor presented to the Legis-
lature on Tuesday, "unrealistic."
The governor's budget is gen-
erally inadequate and doesn't
cover education thoroughly enough
to take care of immediate costs,
let alone provide enough funds for
necessary expansion, board mem-
ber Marylin Kelley of Albion said.
Board's Role
She also agreed with the other
board, members contacted that the
board itself probably won't play
a major role in this year's budget
negotiations. Thurber said this is
because the board lacks the staff
and funds necessary to do an ade-
quate job in this area.
Rep. Martin Buth (R-Comstock
Park) of the House Education
Comnittee, noted that he had not
as yet had the opportunity to
study the higher education por-
tion of the Romney budget, but
he feels that "overall, education
received fair treatment." Buth
adde that the appropriation for
the University depends primarily
upon the amount of expansion it
plans to carry out. Buth felt since
the governor's request for higher
education is the highest "in a long
time," this speaks well for the re-
'Sadly Lacking'
Rep. Robert Traxler (D-Bay
City) said that the governor's
budget is "sadly lacking" in the
area of capital outlay for higher
education as well as being "un-
realistic" in its estimate of the
needs for operational expenses for
the state's colleges and universi-
ties. Traxler said that he hadn't
studied the specific provisions of
the budget in this area either, but
noted that there is "a serious
problem as to what direction high-
er education in the state should
take and this is aquestion that
has yet to be answered."
Sen. Garland Lane (D-Flint),
chairman of the Senate Appro-

priations Committee, said'that he
wouldn't detail his complaints
about the budget until he had seen
it "broken down as far as figures
are concerned," but noted that on
the whole, the budget "seems in-
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) also said that he hadn't
received an explanation of the
higher education recommendation.

SELMA, Ala. (AP) - A federal

night and declared illegal a dis-

In Washington, Rep. Weston E.
Vivian of Ann Arbor announced
yesterday that he and 12 other
congressmen, led by Rep. Adam
Clayton Powell (D-NY), will fly
to Selma today for a first-hand
look at the situation.
Additional Legislation
Vivian said the group wants to
determine whether additional ' -
Islation must be passed by Con-
gress to guarantee Negro voting
Meanwhile, Mayor Joe Smith-
erman of Selma sent a telegram
to President Lyndon B. Johnson
urging him to publicly rebuke the
congressional group set to visit
Selma. He asked Johnson to ap-
point "a legitimate congressional
fact-finding panel."
The injunction was issued by
District Judge Daniel H. Thomas,
requiring the Dallas County Voter
Registration Board to start proc-
essing more applications when it
meets and threatened to assign a
federal voter referee if the pro-
cedure drags on.
Prevent March
One spokesman, the Rev. An-
drew Young, said only an appeal
from Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
from his jail cell kept Negroes
from marching through the streets
last night.
Young said if the demonstra-
tions are resumed the Negroes
probably will wait at least until
Saturday because the group of
congressmen plan to visit Selma
today and-"the congressman (Rep.
Powell) would not like for us to
demonstrate while they are here."

The sororities will be divided in-

to visit every house during first

Rushees 'Will still be assigned to
rush groups for the purpose of

the counseling program will be in-

Ann Wickins, '65, said.
This mixer proposal is identical
to the one proposed last semester
for freshman spring rush which
was defeated by Presidents' Coun-
cil. Fall rush is designed specific-.
ally for upperclassmen.
The new plan also eliminates
any structure for the third and
fourth sets. However, there will be
a designated three-day period dur-
ing which the houses will "open
rush" for each set.
Preferencing and bidding will
still be done through the Pan-

Proposals Ignore
Flint Expansion
Pierpont Says Branch Possibilities
To Require 'Long, Careful Study
University plans for expansion of its Flint branch may have to be
revised because of Gov. George Romney's failure to include funds for
the plan in his 1965-66 budget recommendations.
University administrators were surprised and disappointed by a
note in Romney's detailed budget analysis which said, "The (budget)
recommendation does not contemplate enrollment of a freshman class
at the Flint center of the University of Michigan, pending an over-all
public policy review of institutional roles," by his Blue Ribbon Citizens
Committee on Higher .Education.
University Vice-President for Business and Finance Wilbur K.
Pierpont said the governor's comments meant that Flint expansion
plans "would require long and careful study."

unanimously passed.
At the present time, students
have two to five. weeks to drop
a course with the approval of
their counselor. After that, ex-,
cept in certain instances, approval
must be obtained from the col-
lege's Administrative Board.
Dropping Courses
If the suggestion is adopted by
the college, students would be
permitted to drop courses to a
minimum of 12 hours simply by
notifying the course instructor and
the college of their decision.
However, Associate Dean James
Robertson of the literary college
said yesterday that he doubted
such a policy could be adopted
since it would be contrary to the
college's regulations.
He nevertheless affirmed his
willingness to meet with reprssen-
tatives of Council to discuss the
Counselors' Approval
SGC also voted to recommend to
the literary college that juniors
and seniors be permitted to select,
their own academic program with-
out securing prior approval from
their counselors.
The recommendation as ex-
plained by SGC Administrative
Vice-President Sherry Miller, '65,
is designed to eliminate the red
tape and delay caused by the
necessity of waiting for a coun-
selor's approval.
The college has already demon-
strated its faith in the students'
ability to select their own courses
by making the signature of the
counselor only a formality, she
Calling this proposal a "good
position," Dean Robertson said
the idea has been under considera-

accept sole responsibility for meet-

Bundy Pledges
U.S. Support
To ,Vietnamese
SAIGON (P)-Presidential As-
sistant McGeorge Bundy began
a round of fact-finding confer-
ences with United States officials
yesterday amid speculation in
some Vietnamese quarters that a
U.S.-Soviet deal on Viet Nam was
in the making.
Bundy's arrival happened to co-
incide with the departure of So-
viet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin
from Moscow for talks in Hanoi,
the capital of Communist North
Viet Nam. Bundy denied his trip
was related in any way to the
Kosygin visit.
Bundy's arrival statement reit-
erated American pledges to con-
tinue support for Viet Nam's an-
ti-Communist struggle. The state-
ment contained the diplomatic
hint that Viet Nam was expected
to do its part.
Some Vietnamese saw Bundy's
announced itinerary here as a
slight to ruling Vietnamese offi-
cials, notably strongman Lt. Gen.
Nguyen Khanh and his acting
premier, Nguyen Xuan Oanh.

to pay for Flint's expansion from
a two-year to a four-year institu-
tion from its requested budget in-
crease of $11.7 million.
Romney, however, recommended
an increase of only $6 million. The
question then becomes how would
the University run Flint without
the planned funds?
"Freshmen have already been
accepted at Flint," Niehuss said,
"and so it is difficult to make any
changes in plans there."
The University could still pay
for Flint' expansion out of funds
allocated for the Ann Arbor and
Dearborn campuses. Niehuss em-
phasized that no plans have yet
been made for this, but comment-
ed that the Flint expansion plans
"have the highest priority in our
Niehuss noted that the gover-
nor's recommendations are not
legally binding on the University,
but said his opinions were still
"matters to be considered.-"
Former Opposition
The University has encountered
opposition to its Flint expansion
before. When it was first proposed,
many smaller state colleges ,op-
posed the move, seeing it as an
attempt by the University to an-
nex Flint's legislative votes in its
appropriations struggles.
A basic issue in the problem is
that of state-wide coordination of
education plans.
After the Legislature appropri-
ates money to the University, it
no longer has any control over
what the Regents do with those
funds, under Michigan's constitu-
tion. Yet a major effort of both
the Board of State College Presi-
dents and the Michigan Coordinat-
ing Council for Public Higher
Education has been to provide
some type of voluntary educa-
tional coordination.
