Tuskegee Bonds Forged

Buddhists * *
Behind New'ITnseu-la
Rebel Units UfleU







The University's recently-
forged bonds of co-operation
with Tuskegee Institute in Ala-
bama are beginning already to
reap mutual benefits.
This is the gist of a progress
report recently sent to Vice-
President for Academic Affairs

changes and cultural enrich-
ment are already taking shape,
Miller writes.
The liaison in the social
sciences has led to the estab-
lishment of a race-relations in-
stitute, financed bythe Depart-
mnent of Health, Education'and
.Welfare, and geared to training
people in social science research
methodology at the University.
The project uses Tuskegee ma-
terials and its Alabama location
as a site for field study in race-
Mrs. Patricia Billingsley of
the Survey Research Center was
already engaged in studying
student attitudes inSouthern
Negro colleges when the joint,
program began. She is now
consulting extensively with the
Tuskegee social science staff in
the planning and actual im-
plementation of the program.
Until recently, most activity
in the area of faculty exchange
was in the engineering schools.
This spring, Professors Arthur
Hansen, J. Raymond Pearson
and Gordon Van Wylen of the'
mechanical engineering depart-
ment served as consultants to
Dean Dybczak of the engineer-
ing department at Tuskegee.
Prof. Thomas Piatkowski, for-
merly of the University, joined
the Tuskegee engineering de-
partment last year and will
continue teaching there this
Prof. C. S. R. Rao from Tus-
kegee is now teaching engineer-
ing graphics at the University.

In exchange, plans are under
way for a member of the Uni-
versity's engineering faculty to
teach at Tuskegee during the
spring semester.
Exchange Program
This first true.exchange of
faculty, Miller hopes, is the
beginning of a large exchange
program between the two, in-
stitutions which will bring
many Negro faculty members'
to the University.
Within the past year, the
Office of Academic Affairs has'
recruited six professors from
outside the University to serve
as faculty members at Tuske-
gee. Prof. Richard Wasser-
strom, a ,University alumnus,.
accepted the deanship of the
College of Liberal Arts at the
Institute in part because of the
association between the two
schools, Miller writes. 4
The first long-term exchange
of undergraduate students is
scheduled to take place in
January. Fiveor six..students
in their junior year at the Uni-
versity will enroll for the spring
semester at Tuskegee. They will
study in fields where Tuskegee
has special strength. At the
same time, an equal number of
Tuskegee juniors will enroll at
the University,
In the pastuyear, there have
been several impdrtant cultural
exchanges between the two in-
stitutionts. The Tuskegee In-
stitute Choir appeared in Ann
Arbor last spring, attracting
considerable public attention. A

Housing Law
Appeal Opens
City Attorney Jacob F. Fahrner
will appeal in Circuit Court to-
morrow a decision handed down
last spring that the city's Fail
Housing Ordinance is invalid un-
der the state constitution.
Fahrner contends that Munici-
pal Court Judge Francis O'Brien',
ruling is invalid because the new
state constitution does not direct-
ly provide for fair housing, and,
therefore, a local ordinance is
Under the new constitution the
State Civil Rights Commission
was created to handle cases of dis-
crimination. The legal question is
whether or not the state preempts
the field on civil rights matters.
I Invalid
State Atty. Gen. Frank J. Kelley,
in an opinion issued last October,
said local fair housing ordinances
would be invalid when the new
constitution took effect Jan. 1.
If the Circuit Court decides
O'Brien's decision is valid, the
state will preempt local govern-
ments in -regard to discriminatory
practices in housing matters. This
would result in the State Civil
Rights Commission handling all
However, if the ordinance is
finally ruled constitutional and
O'Brien's decision invalid, the
ordinance would co-exist with the

The question of the Fair Hous-
ing Ordinance's constitutionality
came up after an alleged case of
discrimination involving the Park-
hurst-Arbordale Apartments.
