Board Asks Record $14.2 Million
To Launch Expansion Program
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
The Regents have submitted their annual request to Lansing for
state building funds. Their record bid of $14.2 millionseeks to launch,
5r starting ,next year, a five-year program of construction and remodel-
ling which would eventually cost the state $102 million.
The program aims to expand literary and architecture college
facilities, erect medical and dental school structures and continue re-
novation of the University's

By JEFFREY GOODMAN
A "handsome budget increase" of almost $585,000 has given
the University Library a much-needed transfusion.
The increased funds in this year's legislative appropriation
will allow "considerable improvements" in salary levels, staff size
and book acquisitions, University Library Director Frederick H.
Wagman said. "Our situation is still a long way from where we
want it to be, but we have taken a great step forward."
The "where we want to be" referred to earlier projections the
library had made of its needs for 1968 and 1975. "We will. need
several more steps of this dimension if we are to meet future de-
mands as the University grows," Wagman said.
36,000 by 1968
The projections-which Wagman labelled "conservative"--
were made last spring on the basis of an anticipated 36,000 stu-

spring, the library was second only to faculty salary increases.
When the computations were finished, the library's budget
totalled over $2.75 million. Of the increase over last year, approxi-
mately 42 per cent goes for new staff, 30 per cent for book acqui-
sition, 20 per cent for salary increases and eight per cent for
general operating expenses, Wagman said.
Included in the University Library system are most libraries
on campus plus the Dearborn Center library, whose budget was
recently brought under the -system. The law, business adminis-
tration,; Flint and Clements libraries and the Michigan Historical
Collections are governed separately.,
In the area of staff, about 45 salaried positions have been
added throughout the library. These include ,both professional
and clerical staff in such areas as book purchasing, cataloguing,
circulation, reference and administration. Also added are staff
members in various positions at many of the library's branch units.
Pay Rates Up
These changes, plus some salary increases, have considerably
boosted pay rates for almost all personnel. This is an important
step, Wagman said, since one of the chief reasons for the recent
staff losses was uncompetitive pay.
Wagman noted that further personnel problems will almost
certainly arise when the University opens its first summer term
next May. "Undoubtedly we wvill have to add new people, though
handling increased summer loads will be primarily'a matter of
staggering vacations so that too many members aren't gone at the
same time," he said.
In the area of book acquisitions, Wagman said this year's
budget increases are "a' real shot in the arm."

Student Loan
Bill P Iending
B
In Congress
By JUDITH WARREN
An expansion and extension of
the nation's largest student loan
program is now pending before
Congress. If passed, the University
may receive more than $700 thou-
sand ,for loans.
The original National Defense
Act provides $135 million, for stu-
dent loans. This .bill awaits the
signature of President Lyndon B.
Johnson.
Both houses of Congress have
now passed expansions of the
original act but in different forms..
A conference committee is now
being formed to carve out a com-
promise.
Both versions of the bill in-
crease the funds available from
$135 million to $163.3 million.
They also eliminate !the original
$800 thousand ceiling available to
each institution. This would mean
that the University could apply for
more than $700 thousand to pro-
vide more loans.
''It is quite, probable that the
limit will be raised. We certainly
need the money, as do all big
schools," Walter B. Rea, Univer-
sity director of financial aids,
said. :
saThe new bill also extends the
original act for an additional two
years beyond its expiration date
of June 30, .1965.

scarce.
Both forms of the bill eliminate
the provision which gives prefer-
ence to students showing a super-
for academic record in science,
mathematics, ,engineering. and a
modern foreign language. But
both still give preference to those
students who wish to teach in
elementary and secondary schools.
Both bills retain provisions to
increase the individual loan limit
for graduate and professional stu-
dents from $1000 to $2,500 per
year. Under this provision, the
maximum each student will re-
ceive for his years spent in under-
graduate and graduate study is
$10,000
Both bills retain the present
$1000 a year loan to undergraduate
students with a maximum for the
undergraduate period of $5000.-
However, there are major dif-
ferences in the two bills. The Sen-
ate version allows funds for stu-
dents in business colleges while
the House version does not. The
House bill provides funds for stu-
dents in nursing programs. The
'Senate version does not.
,The House bill will supply money
only for schools which give a B.A.

The library generally gauges its book purchases by allocating
a given amount of money for books to each departmente and. col-
lege. Wagman commented that the library will now be 'able to
increase its allocations to some 23 different units.
Precisely how many books will be added to the existing collec-
tions is impossible to predict, he said, since purchases depend
heavily on the amount of publishing in any year, book prices and
demand from within the University.
He did point uat,. however, that the library (including the
Dearborn, and business administration units) .grew by 111,000
volumes last year. He felt confident that this record would at
least be equalled this year.
Furthermore, he was more sure than he had been last spring
that staff additions could keep pace with book purchases. Every
new volume requires a certain increment in staff size because of
the numerous service operations which must be performed to
place and maintain a book in circulation, Wagman explained.
One such operation-cataloguing-has already been improved
under the new budget: now the library has a system for tempor-
arily cataloguing the large number of books it has not yet had
time to catalogue permanently, he explained.
Some alleviation of the library's space needs is also proceeding
this year, though more slowly and with less help from the budget
increase.
At present, the University is preparing. to ask the federal
government for one-third of the cost of the $3.5 million General
Library addition. The University is also asking the Legislature for
$500,000 to plan and begin renovations in the General Library.

CHICAGO-Roy Wilkins, exec-
utive secretary of the National As-
sociation for the Advancement of
Colored People, blasted Republican
presidential nominee Sen. Barry
Goldwater last night, saying his
campaign has "out-and-out tones
of race."
Wilkins spoke before the 60th
annual American Political Science
convention, attended by over 2,-
000 professors and students, in-
cluding several from the Univer-
sity.
"Just as the Negro, with the
help of federal legislation and
court action, is slowly winning
the vote in the South, a Republi-
can nominee appears who pledges
that there will be no such federal
liberation if he is elected," Wilkins
said. ,
Wilkins charged the Goldwater
wing of the Republican party "has
moved down to the murky level o.
racial ignorance and racial fears,
inhabited and glorified by the ped-
dlers of hatred based upon skin
color.
"it is a fair deduction that Mr.
Goldwater believes anti - Negro
feelings will elect him president
next November. In labeling them
'subtle impulses,' he is recognizing
and dignifying such prejudices
and applauding their retention in
the minds and hearts of voters."
The Negro believes, Wilkins as-
serted, that Goldwater's campaign
treats the racial issue in the same
manner as the late Sen. Theodore
Bilbo of Mississippi, "only with
less crude language."

Of Room Bill
Council Requests
Housing Department
To Publish Figures
By JOHN MEREDITH
Interquadrangle Council unan-
imously passed a motion last night
requesting that the housing office
prepare an explanation of'the
recent room and board rate hike.
The statement would be published
in the IQC Newsletter by Oct. 1.
The motion proposed by West
Quadrangle President Leonard
Weinstein, '65, asked that the fol-
lowing information be included in
the explanation :_
1) A breakdown showing where
"every penny" of the total room
and board payments goes;
2) "Where every penny" of the
individual $34 increase went;
3) Why the increase was nec-
essary;
4). Why the IQC president was
.not consulted before the increase
went into effect;
5) Why the rates were increased
during the summer;
6) Why returning dorm residents
'were not informed of a possible
I room and board. increase before
signing their :contracts.
Understanding 1"ecessary
"We feel it is important for each
resident to understand exactly why
the increase was made," Weinstein
commented. "Moreover, IQC would
like to have all pertinent infor-
mation at hand to evaluate and,
if necessary, protest the decision
to raise room and board rates."
At second motion, proposed by
John Lossing, '67, president of
Mary Markley, was tabled indefi-
nitely by the council. This mo-
Lion stated that "the IQC de-
mand-not merely suggest this
time-that the housing office be
reformed on Lines which take in-
to account the importance of the
student as an individual, and not
as an IBM card."
The motion proclaimed that
"the welfare of residence hall
dwellers should be of paramount
importance" in formation 'of hous-
ing policy andt contended that
present administration attitudes
are not entirely in line with this.
"The general consensus of the
council:was 'in agreement with
these statements," John Eadie, '65,
IQC president, remarked.
"However, the. body felt that it
Scould better help to solve these.
problems. by attacking them on a
specific basis. Hence, a general
resolution of this .kind would 'not

STUDENT LEADER VIEWS CRISIS:
Communists Prey on Viet Nationalism, U.S. Policy

First of Two Articles
By KENNETH WINTER
Managing Editor
"Viet Nam isn't being run for you, it's being run for the United
States. We are the true nationalists."
With this argument, the Communist Viet Cong has won the
support of large segments of South Viet Nam's populace, one of that
nation's student leaders said yesterday.:
Dao Duy, president of the Vietnamese Catholic Students' Fed- =
eration, is in Ann Arbor on a State Department travel ,grant. In
an interview he detailed how the Viet Cong-or the' National
Liberation Front, as it calls itself-has gained the sympathy of
his countrymen.
Stoaiy Begins in 1954
- Th'm om.ginn nf the Viet story begins in 1954, after a.

amounted to a threat to cut off sorely-needed U.S. aid if Diem were
not placed in charge, Dao Duy added.-
In his, first three years, Diem took "the first steps" toward
establishing a democracy, but later it became apparent that the
forms he had set up were intended to mask a dictatorship, Dao
Duy said.
"Unfortunately, Eisenhower was president of the U.S. at the
time. As a military man, he looked at Viet Nam as a strategic
territory against the Communist world," he continued. Hence the
U.S. aid to Viet Nam consisted mostly of military supplies.
Diem's Star Dimmed
Diem's government became less and less popular. "The people
were never against Diem himself. ,He had some virtu; he was honest
and uncorruptible. We liked this. But he always followed the advice
of his staff, and his staff was very bad," Dao Duy said.
