For Travel to Cuba
USNSA Expects Answer Soon;
Hope To Send Representative Body
The United States National Student Association is negotiating
with the State Department in an attempt to obtain authorization
for student trips to Cuba.
A reply from the passport division of the department is expected
within a few days.
David Littig, a spokesman for the USNSA's International desk,
said yesterday that the move is being made in response to a mandate
passed by the USNSA Congress last fall asking that permission be

To Examie
Student Role
A proposal to create a study
team of students, faculty and ad-
ministrators to probe the role of
the student in University affairs
was accepted at yesterday's meet-
ing of the Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs.
It was submitted by Prof. Wal-
lace Berry of the music school and
chairman of SACUA's Student Re-
lations Committee which initiated
the idea.
The proposal outlined the re-
sponsibilities of the "Ad-Hoc tom-
mittee on Student Participation
in University Affairs" as follows:
-"To- investigate the role of
the student, graduate or under-
graduate, in relation to the gov-
ernmental structure of the Uni-
versity and to define the nature
of his participation in the total
-"To consider the nature, func-
tion and desirability of student
t government or governments and
the relation of the student bodies
to other agencies, administrative
and faculty, and
-"Hopefully, to suggest some
devices to facilitate the flow of
information, and to search for
ways in which groups can work
together, more. effectively on Uni-
versity affairs involving the com-
mon interests."
The following faculty have been
nominated to the Ad-Hoc Com-
mittee: Professors Marvin Fel-
heim of the English department
(chairman), Robert L. Kahn of
the psychology, department and
program director of the Survey
Rese'arch C e n t e r, Robert L.
Knauss of the Law School, Char-
les F. Lehmann, associate dean
of the education school and Nor-
ma Marshall, assistant to the dean
of the nursing school.
The remaining members nomi-
nated for the committee include
seven undergraduate and four
graduate . students. John Feld-
kamp, assistant director of stu-
dent affairs and activities, was
nominated as an "observer with-
out a vote."
The term of the Ad-Hoc Com-
mittee will extend through De-
cember, 1965, at which time it will
present its report through the
Subcommittee on Student Rela-
tions to SACUA for appropriate

1963 Visit
Sixty students visited Cuba in
the summer of 1963 in violation
of a State Department order bar-
ring travel to the nation. The
students staged a sit-in demon-
stration when~they arrived at
Kennedy International Airport in1
New York to protest a State De-
partment warning that their pass-
ports would be stamped "tem-
porarily withheld." The depart-
ment then agreed to let them
through customs without stamp-
ing their passports.
Littig said the reports of this
group on their findings in Cuba
were "biased and not in the best
interests of the USNSA." Many
students in the group had express-
ed admiration for Fidel Castro's
regime and noted "great accom-
plishments" since. his rise to pow-,
Court Ruling
A federal court ruled a year
ago that the State Department's
ban on travel to Cuba had been
unconstitutional. However, special
procedures are still required for
individuals or groups who wish to
obtain a passport permitting travel
to the Caribbean island nation.
Littig reported that the USNSA
had sent a letter to Undersecre-
tary of State for InterAmerican
affairs Thomas Mann requesting
authorization for a student trip
next summer. Mann replied that
the organization must apply to a
special passport' division. which
deals with travel to Cuba and
Communist nations in Eastern
ittig said that no indication
had been received whether or not
permission for the projected trip
would be granted. The only Amer-
icans in Cuba now are correspon-
dents for the major wire services.
IQC Sets UpCo m te s
Inter-Quadrangle Council estab-
lished two committees last night
in a meeting at West Quadrangle.
One will consider the proposed
Assembly-IQC merger while the
other will investigate possible pro-
cedures for distribution of litera-
ture in dormitory mail boxes.
Distribution of literature in
mail boxes last spring resulted in
a major IQC crisis when East

Council in a dispute. The new
committee will attempt to remedy
former rules and avert any similar
crisis in the near future.

Special To The Daily
GRAND RAPIDS - "Our food-
for-peace shipments have helped
us reduce the temperature in
Egypt, the Middle East, and Af-
rica," G. Mennen Wiliams, former
governor of Michigan and under-
secretary of state for African af-
fairs, said here Sunday.
"People forget that Egypt was

The survey will be taken to de-
termine statistically what students
"want and need" in off-campus
A questionnaire drawn up by
the Housing Committee of Gradu-
ate Student Council, represented
by Rayfield Goldsmith, will be
presented as soon as possible to
the Blue Ribbon Committee for
use on the survey. The survey is
expected to represent student dis-
content about housing conditions
"in strongly-documented form."
Opinions were expressed by the
board members on the steady rise
of apartment rent and the often
poor quality of new buildings. The
need for more documented facts
surrounding the issues was recog-
nized by all the board members
before additional stronger recom-
mendations could be made.
A suggested proposal to be sub-
mitted to the Student Government
Council tomorrow night was ac-
cepted by the board. The proposal
suggests that SGC purchase an
advertisement in the off-campus
housing supplement and state its
recommendations on the housing
In response to a suggestion from
Wendell Hulcher, candidate for
mayor, to establish a city-Univer-

cuss the issue.

thanks to the aid, we have had a
relative detente that's been help-
ful in keeping peace and stability
in the area," he continued.
Williams, who has been deeplyt
concerned in the State Depart-
ment with the rebellion against
the Congo (Leopoldville) govern-
ment of Moise Tshombe, stressed
that Egypt was not under his
jurisdiction. However, he went on,
the food-for-peace shipments have
"helped reduce friction in the
Middle East and Africa as well
and are the best thing to do, in
the judgment of the President."
Rescinds Ban
The House of Representatives
recently rescinded its ban on the
shipmentsto Egypt of the last $37
million worth of agricultural sur-
pluses under the Commodity
Credit Corporation act.
Williams also pointed optimis-
tically to a recent meeting of the
Organization for African Unity
in Mauretania. "They've met and
indicated a desire to support the
central government and to resist
the rebellion," he said.
"Our prestige and popularity in
Africa have fallen because we're
supporting Tshombe," Williams
admitted, "primarily because he's
associated with the murder of
former Congo premier Patrice
Lumumba and the use of white

eclipse, not a basic or a perma-
nent feature of our relations with
Williams also discussed the dif-
ficulties involved in aiding the
struggles to ease or end colonial

"We must, for example, con-
vince Portugal to accommodate
itself to change in Africa. We've
endeavored in a number of ways,
mostly diplomatic, to get Portu-
gal to do this, but with indifferent
success," Williams commented, re-
ferring to the Angolan rebellion.
He pointed to the fact that
United States trade with Portugal
is insignificant and that "our
military aid to the Portuguese is
subject to NATO restrictions."
Congo Situation
"I don't think the Congo situ-i
ation is going to become another
Viet Nam," Williams added, allud-
ing to_ a theory advanced by var-.
ious commentators recently.
"The basic difference is that
Viet Nam is juxtaposed to main-
land Communist C h i n a and
Pathet Lao-controlled Laos, while
in the Congo the logistics are ob-
viously much more difficult."
He said that the Congo remain-
ed ."a dangerous situation," not-

tee with two additional members.
"In the past AHC has not en-
dorsed candidates, but I think that

feel are qualified for SGC posi-
tions would give Assembly an in-
fluential voice in campus affairs,"
Vice-President Judy Klein, '66,
"The idea of Assembly endors-
ing SGC candidates would be
profitable to AHC as well as the
candidates because this associa-
tion has invested interests in stu-
dent government which need to be
protected," Doug Brook, '65, presi-
dent of SGC, said.

Curry said he would most like
to see Ann Arbor low-cost housing

The accomplishments Carr would
like to see in his term of office
are enactment of the amendments
to the Fair Housing Ordinance,
completion of a development plan

housing for every Ann Arbor
citizen and enactment of a long-
