Stanford Students Say
Dean Controls Council
Two Stanford University students issued a report Thursday
charging Dean of Women Lucile Allen with attempting to manipulate
the student judicial council actions.
The report, written by Darrel Halverson, former president of the
Stanford men's judicial council and Nora Crow, former president of
the women's judicial council, was the result of a conversation which
took place last spring between Dean Allen and members of the
judicial council. Dean Allen allegedly urged council action against

MOSCOW ('P)-Soviet Premier
Alexei N. Kosygin arrived in
Hanoi yesterday declaring his aim
to strengthen unity with Com-
munist North Viet Nam "in the
struggle against imperialism."
To . the ,applause of several
-thousan4 at the airport, Kosygin
voiced strong support for unifica-
tion of Viet Nam under the Hanoi
regime, Tass reported and de-
nounced "American and foreign
interventionists and their pup-

pets" in South Viet Nam.
T h e Communist Vietnamese
news agency said 100,000 persons
turned out either at Gia Lam air-
port or in Hanoi itself to welcome
the Russians.
On Kosygin's arrival, the North
Vietnamese Communist newspaper
Nhan Dan indicated a distinct
movement away from adherence
to Red China's militant policy.

Maddox To Serve Neg roes
Will Obey Federal Order
ATLANTA (A')-Atlanta restaurant operator Lester Maddox, who
has fought the civil rights act since its passage, said yesterday he
will serve Negroes.
A federal judge had ordered Maddox to pay a $200 fine for each
day his restaurant was open and practiced racial discrimination.
Maddox said that he would abide by the court order requiring
him to serve persons of all races. A certificate of compliance would
be filed in federal court tomorrow, he added.
He said he was not surprised at the court's decision.but was
shocked that so many Americans had failed to fight the passage of
---the civil rights act. He said that

Red China is believed to be a
prime object of Kosygin's visit.
Expressing support for' Soviet
foreign policy, Nhan Dan cited a
speech by Leonid I. Brezhnev, First
Secretary of the Soviet Commun-
ist Party, on Nov. 6 extolling
peaceful coexistence.
Premier Chou En-lai of Red
China was present for that speech
in the Kremlin and noticably re-
frained from joining in the ap-
plause for coexistence, which is
denounced by Peking as a sellout
to capitalism.
Talk with Chou
Kosygin flew to Hanoi from Pe-
king, where he had stayred Friday
and talked with Chou. Brief offi-
cial announcements i n d i c a t e d
these talks were hardly cordial.
Tass said Kosygin was welcomed
by stormy applause at Hanoi's air-
port. He told welcomers that co-
operation between the Soviet Un-
ion and North Viet Nam "is a
worthy contribution to unity of
the socialist camp."
Peking has charged the Soviet
Communist Party wit htrying to
disrupt unity, especially in calling
a meeting next month of party
leaders in Moscow to prepare for
a world conference of the party.
North Viet Nam has followed Pe-
king in opposing the meeting.
The Soviet premier saidsuccess-
es of North Viet Nam were "an
inspiring example for the popula-
tion of South Viet Nam agoinst
American and foreign interven-
tionists and their puppets." Tass
said the crowd applauded.

thetable again yesterday in ef-
forts to end the 27-day East and
Gulf coast dock strike.

tional Longshoremen's Union and

completely stalemated, but we just
ran out of strength.'
Murray said negotiators are still.
at odds over the guaranteed work
year and work rules.
The dispute reportedly is de-
laying the reopening of other
North Atlantic ports. It is believ-
ed that a Philadelphia settlement
would facilitate agreements at
Galveston, Tex.; Miami, Fla., and
Hampton Roads, Va.
President Lyndon B. Johnson is
prepared to intervene in the strike

passe at Philadelphia during the
night, the Baltimore Sun reported+

prejudice, violence and death.
"But," he added, "I am one who
must obey the law."
Every table was occupied at his
restaurant yesterday, but he said
loss of profits caused by attempts
to integrate his eating place, to-
gether with 1 e g a 1 expenses,
amounted to $100,000. Expenses
that could result from other cases
pending might bring the total loss
to about $130,000, he reported.
"This is beyond our capacity,"
Maddox remarked. "We face im-
mediate financial ruin unless
given cooperation by others."
Maddox still faces. charges of
pointing a pistol at another.
George S. Wilis Jr., a Negro
theological student, made the
charge in a warrant sworn out last
July. He said Maddox pointed the
pistol at him when he and two
Negro companions attempted to
enter his restaurant.
Maddox has been free under
$1,000 bond since Willis' charge
was filed.
Criminal court solicitor William
Spence said the case should be
brought to trial late this month.
Maddox closed one restaurant,
the Pickrick, after he was put un-
der federal c o u r t injunction
against discrimination. He opened
the cafeteria last September and
again barred Negroes.
Maddox indicated that he would
appeal the decision holding him in
civil contempt to the U.S. Supreme
Court although he will obey the
court in the interval. ,

Council. To
Rights Law
WASHINGTON (A) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson created a
President's Council on Equal Op-
portunity yesterday to coordinate
the activities of federal agencies
in the civil rights field.
Johnson named Vice-President
Hubert H. Humphrey as chairman
of the council, which was set up
in response to a recommendation
from Humphrey.
The vice-president, who had
been assigned earlier the job of
bringing together the many civil
rights activities of the federal gov-
ernment, had asked for "a com-
paratively simp1e coordinating
mechanism, without elaborate
staff and organization."
The resulting council will con-
sist of 16 government officials, in-
cluding six cabinet officers, besides

and other laws relating to racial
In a letter to Humphrey telling
of his action, Johnson expressed
hope the council will prove "a
most effective means of insuring
cooperation, coordination, and
harmonious working relationships"
among the agencies involved.
"There is no remaining question.
about the determination of the
American people to eliminate, the
injustice and the waste of human
resources that have resulted from

Halverson and Miss Crow said
they withheld submission of their
report until their terms on the
judicial councils expired. Because
of Dean Allen's alleged influence
on the councils Halverson and
Miss Crow feared unfavorable
personal repercussions if they act-
ed before their terms expired. ,
The report stated that Dean
Allen "has demonstrated her mis-
understanding of the student ju-
diciary in her attempt to control
its politics.'" She "doesn't recog-
nize women's council as an in-
dependent organization and thinks
of the council as part of her ad-
ministrative staff."
The report attributed Dean Al-
len with saying, "The young pro-
fessors arouse the girls sexually.
They concentrate deliberately on
the erotic aspects of literature, :n
part because those who are un-
married use literature as their
sexual outlet, and in part because
they wish to seduce the girls- in
their classes."

According to students at Stan-
ford the real issue is not the

ment but a problem of basic aca-

legislature a resolution was passed
to defer judgment on the Allen
report until the matter had been
Sole Jurisdiction
They did assert, however, "that
the Associated Students of Stan-
ford University shall have sole
jurisdiction over student affairs
and' conduct" This is in direct
conflict with a Board of Trustees
resolution three years ago estab-
lishing control of student disci-
pline as a function of the deans.
Dean Allen said that the ,tu-
dent version of the discussion of
sex and the English department
was completely fabricated.
"I can't imagine where they got
this," she said. She did say tbat
"it was at a women's council
meeting nine months ago that
one of the members said she ob-
jected to some theme subjects
given freshman girls. I told her,
'If you will verify this, I'll be glad
to talk to the chairman of the
English department about. That
was the last I heard of it." Four,
of the girls who attended the
meeting signed sworn affidavits
verifying the statements attribut-
ed to Dean Alien.
It is hoped by Stanford students
that the report will be instrumen-
tal in the removal of Dean Allen.
It is also expected that an appeals
committee will be established con-
sisting of three faculty <nd two
student members to review cases
of student discipline.


Gov. George Romney's rejection
of a plan to finance state college
construction through a bond issue
was labeled a political maneuver
yesterday by Warren a. Huff,
chairman of the Michigan+ Co-
ordinating Council for Public
Higher Education. M
The rejection of the bonding
plan, Huff said, forces the edu-
cators to support the governor's
tax reform measures as the only
way the schools can get badly-
needed funds for capital outlay
Huff explained that Romney
wanted the educators' support for
his tax reform proposals. How-
ever, they were initially reluctant
to get embroiled in political con-
Huff is also on Michigan State
University's Board of Trustees.
He said that to Romney bond-
ing would temporarily relieve the
pressing situation but would not
act as a cure; tax reform, how-
ever, would be a long range cure.
"Whichever method is used
(tax reform or bonding) the col-
leges need the money now." One
of the means of raising funds
must be approved this year ac-
cording to Huff.
The overflow of 110,000 stu-
dents who will graduate from
Michigan high schools this. spring
necessitates beginning construc-
tion of $100 million of facilities by
next year according to Huff.
Romney feels justified in get-
ting the educators involved with
politics because more than half of
his budget is allocated to educa-
Although the educators favored
the bond method of raising rev-
enue for education, Huff said
they wereaalso willing to back
Romney's tax reforms.
Romney felt that the bond idea
would provide an adequate solu-
tion to the short range educa-
tional needs of the colleges but
would overburden the long range
fiscal structure of the state.

ing of educators into politics oc-

that "more students didn't write

ling of the bus, train and airplane

students. They w re sponsored by

The complaints indicated that

elsewhere because of unsatisfac-
tory living conditions at the

Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., one of
John F. Kennedy's closest ad-
visers, strongly supported the late
President's view that "we must
make the world safe for diver-
sity" last night.
Speaking in the Michigan League
Ballroom to an overflow audience,
the Harvard historian also dis-
cussed United States Viet Nam
policy, declaring, "the choices,
which were extensively narrowed
once Eisenhower committed us to
being there in 1954, are becom-
ing more and more melancholy."
Rejecting withdrawal as "poli-
tically disastrous for us," he also
said that expanding the war into
North Viet Nam by bombing its
major cities "is a misconception
of the war, which is being fought
by guerrillas in the southern jun-
gles, and not with much help
from the northern cities."

for U.S. involvement. This prompt-'
ed speculation that the U.S.
might not oppose a negotiate$1
settlement. Schlesinger's com-
ments seemed to support this an-
Toward Diversity
Schlesinger, in explaining how'
"the currents of history are sweep-
ing us toward a different world,
the world of diversity, declared
that "there may be some among
us who may not give up the old
view that our society is perfect
and that we must not rest until
all others are exactly like it."
However, he maintained, this,
policy is "impolitic and arrogant."
He criticized the -views of former;
Vice-President Richard Nixon and+
Secretary of State John Foster
Dulles, who had declared, "Neu-
tralism is immoral." Schlesinger
maintained that this view said,1
in effect, "'until we discern mor-

ic nations "have been able to do
what classical socialism and class-
ical capitalism said they could not
do-develop stable economies in
which the rich do not get richer
as the poor get poorer."
He added that "the end of the
bipolar world, grouped around
Russia and the United States,"
the "chastening" knowledge of
nuclear weapons, and the internal
development of Soviet society had
made possible a "de fact'o under-
standing" between Russia and the
United States.
Saying that "both sides have
concluded that nuclear co-annhil-
iation is of dubious benefit,"
Schlesinger added that the 1962
Cuban missile crisis "ended the
Russians' faith in nuclear black-
mail as a tool of policy."
Improvisoned Dogma
Schlesinger declared that while,
"as far as dogma , is concerned.

"Working in, government documented all the suspicions I'd had
about it as a historian," Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., declared yesterday
in an interview.
Explaining that the process of government can sometimes be
slow and frustrating, the Harvard historian added quickly that
"There's no more exhilarating experience. Working with President
John F. Kennedy was the most profound experience in my life."
Schlesinger said he doubted that President Lyndon B. Johnson's
"concensus government" outlook would last indefinitely.
Passing Phase
"That's a stage every President goes through," he declared.
"Kennedy had it before the steel crisis and Roosevelt had it until
about 1934. At some point, just as they were, President Johnson
will be confronted with a choice between purpose and concensus,
and then he'll move away from concensus."
Schlesinger, the author of a four-volume series, "The Age of
Roosevelt," said that Franklin D. Roosevelt was faced with a
"visible crisis, while President Kennedy had an invisible one.
Roosevelt didn't have to persuade anyone that something had to
be done. Kennedy, on theother hand, had a tremendous educational
