When Moran left the Churchill
house he told newsmen: "I think
he was a little bit drowsier."
A reporter asked Moran whether
he thought Churchill might sur-

"All I can say is that he is
seriously ill."
A member of the family, who
was with Churchill at Hyde Park
Gate, said "it's pretty grim."

ciate, Lord Brain, said earlier that.

Merger Plan
By Re gents
The Regents apparently set back
and yet advanced the plans for
the merger of the student activi-
ties sectors of the Michigan Union
and Women's League yesterday
The Regents did not vote on the
Joint Report of the Union Board
of Directors and the League Board
of Governors for the merger.
At the same time, however, they
commended the student leaders
involved in the planning of the
merger of the two groups and re-
ferred the report to Vice-President
for Student Affairs Richard Cut-
ler who will work with the stu-
dents on the implementation of
the proposed merger. No vote and
no formal action was taken on the
Students Pleased
"I was quite pleased with the;
Regents' reaction to our plan,",
Mary Moore, '65, chairman of the
League Social Committee, said.t
"Our movement toward a merger]
was not blocked and we are nowt
free to work on the final plans.'
The Union and League have
been distinctly separate organiza-
tions since their founding over 60;
and 40 years ago, respectively.t
Lately, the student activities com-
mittees of the two groups have
been .cooperating on many func-7
A plan was adopted to mergeE
the entire structures of the two1
organizations. The Regents vetoedt
t this, .the so-called Robertson Re-{
port, in 1963 but suggested that
thestudent activities wings of the
Union and League be merged.
Referring to the current plan1
for this merger, Nancy Freitag, '65,f
president of the League Council,l
said, "I didn't expect the Regents
to specifically approve our reprt1
at yesterday's meeting., Instead I1
expected them to note our move-
ment toward a merger this spring
as they themselves requested."
Commenting on the Regents' re-
quest for further information on!
the implementation of the merger,
Miss Freitag speculated that the
Regents wanted a .delineationof
t h e relationship between the
merged organization, the Office of
Student Affairs and the Student
Government Council."
Union President Kent Cart-
wright, '65, said he regarded the
Regents' referral of the merger
plan to Cutler as a "step towards
the eventual merger. I am glad
that the Regents seemed to accept
Cutler's presentation of the plan
in its entirety."
Spring Implementation
Officers of the Union and
League expect the merger to go
into effect this spring when the
officers of the organizations take
office. To go into effect the merger
still needs the approval of the
members of the Union in a refer-
