The suggested curriculum pro-

by Martin L. Katz, '67, will be
presented to Burton D. Thuma,
associate dean of the literary col-

According to .the recommenda-
tion, there would be only three
distribution requirements: a two-
year general humanities course,
a one-year combination natural
and physical science course, and
a one-year social science course.
The general humanities course

Need for Reform

WASHINGTON (T) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson told the Con-
gress and the nation last night
that the time for waiting is gone
and the time for action has come
to assure every American the
right to vote, regardless of race
or color.
The Chiief Executive spoke to
a joint session of Congress and

for men's and women's dormi-
tories. The new system will es-
tablish more "parallel services
and payments" between men's and
women's residences.
Also yesterday, Assembly House
Council voted to request the rais-
ing of student. wages to $1.25 this
summer. According to the AHC
motion the raise would go into
effect by July, 1965 instead of in
1967 as proposed by Vice-President
of Business and Finance Wilbur
K. Pierpont.
According to the Student Em-
ploye's Union the wage increase
would put University wages on a
par with wages at other state and
regional universities.
AHC also passed a motion yes-
terday to allocate $1200 from its
} Education Fund to Library and
Scholarship Funds. $1000 would be
distributed between the dormi-
tories for use in their individual
libraries. The remaining $200 dol-
lars would be used to establish a
scholarship open to all girls liv-
ing in the residence halls and to
associate members who pay house

Last month the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs refused to endorse
leases between students and own-
ers of unfinished buildings. At
that time ten leases between
sophomore women and University
Towers were cancelled.
The committee last night also
recommended that students use
only University leases and refer to
the housing booklet prepared by
the Office of Student Affairs Off-
Campus Housing Bureau. The
booklet is available at the infor-
mation desk in the Student Activi-
ties Bldg. and at residence halls.
Also at last night's meeting the
committee decided to invite both
candidates for the position of Ann
Arbor mayor to speak at a meet-
ing open to students. The com-
mittee will jointly sponsor the
meeting in cooperation with the
Graduate Student Council Hous-
ing Committee.
At the open meeting the com-
mittees hope to discuss with the
creased housing inspection. No
candidates the issues of low-in-
come federal housing and in-
date has been set for the meeting.

Famed Economist Scorns Federal Intrusion

Although the government may promise it, "there is no such

Mises, an economist, author and philosopher, blamed what he
called deceptive promises and governmental intervention generally
for the recurring fluctuations which are said to plague the capitalist
Known as a leading exponent of laissez-faire "liberalism," Mises
addressed an audience of 125 persons representing a broad spectrum
of economic viewpoints. The speech was, however, sponsored by the
newly-formed "Libertarian League," a student-run organization ad-
vncting an unrestrained economy.

He explained that the government, through decreased ta
or increased spending, dumps an increased quantity of mone
