Russell's 28 Fails To Compensate

L Special To The Daily
PORTLAND, Ore:-The dazzling Bruins of UCLA forced
Michigan into error after error, rarely failing to cash in their
own opportunities to win. their second consecutive NCAA
championship, 91-80, here last night.
The final score wasn't indicative of how UCLA dominated
the Wolverines throughout the game. Working together like
five fingers of a solo guitarist, they gave a practically flawless
rendition of "how to win a basketball game, by really trying."
They made the Wolverines look clumsy by constantly

The year 1964 was a good one for economic performance and
policy, but there were some disquieting elements,
Prof. Paul W. McCracken pointed out at a conference on Presi-
dent Lyndon B. Johnson's economic report that prices of certain raw M ore R ights
materials, which historically often have led to a general rise in prices,
were rising in the latter part of 1964.

March Set
A "sympathy march" protesting
the brutality and injustice of re-
cent events in Selma, Ala., will
take place this evening. The
march, beginning at 7 p.m. in
front of the Student Activities
Building, will be led by a recently-
formed organization consisting of
the majority of Negro students at
the University.
This organization, as yet unoffi-
cial and unnamed, was formed
March 13. According to co-chair-
man James Locke, '67L, its pur-
pose is to organize the Negro stu-
dents at the University, "to show
that we are really here, and that
we are concerned about all of the
injustice and discrimination, in
the North as well as in the South.
Locke said that the group will
eventually be a cultural organiza-
tion, and that fighting discrimin-
ation will be one of its goals.
Because the new organization
is not yet official, Panhellenic
Association will formally sponsor
the march through the Negro
sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha,
which is an associate member of

community are strongly urged to

pacity of the economy to produce

"The moves toward a moderate-
ly less easy credit and monetary
policy late in 1964 and thus far
in 1965, can still be helpful in
dealing with the international
payments deficit and in reducing
the probability of a lurch in the
domestic economy which would
end in a sharp reversals," he said.
The international deficit is the
difference between United States
payments to the rest of the world
and receipts from abroad.
A "less easy monetary and
credit policy" would improve the
balance of payments by reducing
the tendency for surplus funds
here to flow abroad.
It would also slightly restrain
domestic economic expansion by
making borrowing money more
costly and less easily arranged.
This resulting restraint would
not be grave, however, in that too
much expansion yields disorderly
growth. According to McCracken,
vigorous growth is healthy but
explosive growth is dangerous.
In testimony before the Senate
Banking and Currency Committee
last, week McCracken pointed out
that the president's program to
deal with the balance of payment
problem will also be more effec-
tive with a slightly less easy
monetary and ciredit policy.

A national civil rights leader
says demonstrations are necessary
to exert continued pressure on
Congress for passage of the ad-
ministration's voting-rights bill.
James Farmer, national director
of the Congress on Racial Equal-
ity, told an audience of 500 last
night at Ann Arbor High School
that the President's speech last
week advocating equality of op-
portunity was "the strongest,
most unequivocal civil rights
statement to come from any Pres-!
Farmer asserted that de facto
segregation, now being practiced
increasingly in the South as well
as the North, presents an even
more complex problem than the
more traditional forms of dis-
crimination. "No single law, act
or issue can eliminate racial dis-
crimination," he said.
He warned that accelerating.f
violence can be expected in many
areas of the deep South after this
week's 50-mile civil rights march
from Selma to Montgomery, Ala.
Farmer explained that a new
phase of the civil rights movement
is about to begin, although the
basic struggle for equal rights
under law is not yet over. The1
new phase involves freedom of
choice in the areas of housing,
employment and education.
He urged a three-pronged at-
tack on de facto segregation, with
increased eforts in the form of
political and economic action as
well as higher educational stand-
