panel with noted theologian Prof.

Herberg will lecture here Oct.
8 and 9 in a series sponsored by
the ORA which will bring five

Prof. Herberg, a sociologist and
theologian, is currently a profes-
sor of culture and philosophy. He
has written "Judaism and Modern
Man: An Interpretation of the
Jewish Religion"; "Protestant-

Writings of Martin Buber"; "Four
Existentialist Theologians," and
"Community, State and 'Church'
Three Essays by Karl Barth."
"What we are interested in is*
what students can bring to the dis-
cussion. We will want to know
such things as why they want., to
be on the panel and a.little bit
about their background," Mrs. Eliz-
abeth Sumner, program assistant
direc;or of the ORA, commented.
"One reason we want t 'pick
panelists early is so that they will
have an opportunity to read some
of Prof. Herberg's books. So that
they can prepare informed ques-
tions and ideas to discuss with
Prof. Herberg. The discussion will
be held Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. in the
South Quad Lounge.
The student panelists will have
the opportunity to decide the topic
of the panel discussion.
After panelists have finished
their discussion, members of the
audience will raise questions.
Also on Herberg's schedule are
two lectures here: "Existentialism:
Religious and Atheistic," on Oct
8, and "Biblical Faith and Man-
Made Religions in Contemporary
America" on Oct. 9. Both will
be made in Rackham iAud. at 4:10
The OI A also hopes to; sponsor
a similar panel discussion around
Prof. Tillich's speech, "The Image
of Man and the Identity Crisis,"
when he is here Oct. 21. Prof. Til-
lich is a theologian at the Univer-
sity of Chicago.
Interviews will be held Wednes-
day, Sept. 16, from 9:30 a.m.-11:3C

Sept. 17. from 9:30 a.m.-12 noon
Sand 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Those interest-

be serious trouble over the week-
end. Sunday was mentioned as a
likely day.
By coincidence, the .talk arose
as South Viet Ntam formally
charged that neighboring Cam-
bodia is fighting Vietnamese bor-
der forces in open support of the
Communist Viet Cong.
Accuse Cambodia
The foreign ministry accused
Cambodian troops of making four
attacks since July 19 to help the
guerrillas and announced four
Vietnamese were killed. Cambodia
was warned that Viet Nam holds
it responsible "for the grave con-
sequences that may follow."
Coupled with that were these
developments elsewhere:
-Though it has repeatedly
complained to the United Nations
Security Council about alleged
raids of the American-backed
Vietnamese forces on Cambodian
border communities, Prince Nor-
odom Sihanouk's government re-
jected the recommendation of a
council mission ,that an observer
group'be sent to guard against
such incursions.
-In Phnom Penh, the Cambo-
dian high command said the
United States and South Viet.
Nam are reinforcing their units
in a Mekong River area that was:
the scene of frontier incidents
Sept. 5. Heavy armament of near-
l y 1000 men posted there was re-
ported to include 105mm and
155mm guns. The area is one over
which U.S. Air Force F102 Delta
Daggers patrolled uneventfully
during a strike by Vietnamese
ground forces Thursday against
Viet Cong units three miles from
the border.t
I Support
-From Peking the, chairman of
Red China's parliament, Marshal
Chu Teh, cabled an expression ;of
support .to Phnom Penh, con-
demning "U.S. imperialismpand
the South Vietnamese ;puppet
troops for the monstrous crimes
they have recently committed
against the Cambodian people."
In, little more than nine months

The current rumors started as
U.S. Ambassador Maxwell D. Tay-
lor was on his way back from con-
sultations in Washington about
the political and military situa-
tion, shaken in August by wide-
spread antigovernment riots.
Most of the coup rumors had to-
do with- a supposed "Catholc
backlash" to apparent concessions
by Khanh to Buddhist and stu-
dent critics.

The remaining $625,000 is to be

University officials have claimed
that a two-year medical program,
will be a prelude to a full four-
year medical school at MSU.
They have,argued that the Leg-
islature must meet its financial
commitments to the University
and Wayne State University. the
only existing medical units, before
promising new construction which
might eventually cost $75 million.
The fouZndation, in choosing
MSU for the grant, cited a report
by the Michigan Coordinatingt
Council for Public Higher Educa-'
tion. The report, Kellogg said,
"recommended that no later than
1971 a cooperative program in the
basic medical sciences should be
provided" at MSU.
The two-year school at. MSU
would be designed "with a view
toward . the transfer of students
to the third and fourth clin-
ical years at the University of
Michigan or Wayne State Univer-
sity or other medical schools," the
foundation said, in referring to
the report.r
MSU already has strong science
departments "to provide a setting
for the new College of Human
Medicine," the foundation said.

perimentation in medical and bio-
logical education were of great in-

The MSU medical school would
have the opportunity, the founda-
tion said, "to integrate human
medicine with programs earlier
established on the campus."
Programs of the MSU College of
Veterinary Medicine could be in-
tegrated with human research to
mutual benefit "since much of the
medical research in the nation is
on animals and many diseases
affect both animals and humans."

18-Story Apartment Bldg.
To BeRad n S etember
Ann Arbor's tallest structure, an 18-story apartment building, is
now being constructed on South University Street, on the old site of
Miller's Ice Cream Parlor. _
. Towne Realty Inc., a Milwaukee construction firm, and the R. E.
Weaver Co. Inc., of Ann Arbor, are cooperating in the construction
of the $4 million building.
Scheduled to be ready for occupancy by next September, it will
house approximately 800 residents in one- and two-bedroom
efficiency apartments. t

The appointment of Hamilton
marks another phase in Radock's
work to revitalize the University
relations office. Two years ago
he instituted "Operation Mich-
igan," a program which sends
University .officials to m a k e
speeches around the state. It also
brings distinguished citizens and
alumni to'the campus here to get
a first-hand impression of the
University's facilities, teaching
and research.
Radock made a major staff and

What Viet Nam needs is a domestic Peace Corps.
Such a project would be staffed and run entirely by Vietnamese

department-financed tour of the United States, feels that this may
.be the key to defeating the Communists and bringing peace to South
Viet Nam.
For the immediate problem, in Dao Duy's opinion, is that few,
rural Vietnamese are interested in resisting the Communist Viet
Cong insurgents-and many actually side with the rebels. Without.
the populace behind them, Western efforts to drive out the Viet
Cong are failing.
Broader Problems
But behind this problem, Dao Duy argues, is a broader one:
the political ignorance of the South Vietnamese. It permits the
Communists-under whose regime, Dao Duy is convinced, hopes of a'
better life for his people would be shattered-to win the allegiance
of the South Vietnamese.
