Student Government Council last night approved the formation
of committees to process alleged student grievances against the
University.
A Council meeting in South Quadrangle also heard a presenta-
tion on an 18-story student apartment structure scheduled for
construction on South University Avenue and its lack of new parking
facilities.
The decision to establish grievance committees followed intro-

Admissions
Competition
To Increase
SAGINAW '(i') -Competition to
get a seat in a college classroom
was keen this year and indica-
tions are it will be more so in
1965.<
The year 1965 is crucial for
Michigan higher education. The
crest of the World .War II baby
crop graduates from high school
next June.
Registrars are advising high
school seniors to get their appli-
cations \ hdmission ip. early
as possile.
"Students must make up their
minds earlier next year in apply-
ing to a college," said George N.
Lauer, registrar at Central Mich-
igan University at Mount Pleas-
ant. "The later they wait the
more difficult it will be to get
into a college."'
Central Michigan had a 30 per
cent increase in applications this
year and expects another 25 per
cent next year.
Ferris State College at Big
Rapids had a 31 per cent increase
this year and expects a 40 per1
cent increase next year.
Prof. Victor Spathelf, school
president, said if Ferris can ac-
commodate the 500-student in-
crease it is planning for in 1965,
"It will be done with the greatest
Houdini act you've ever seen."
The University went up from
9,000 applications to 11,000 this
year, and expects another 13,000
next year. Gayle Wilson, assistant
registrar, said 80 per cent of all
applicants are admissible by the
University's standards of a B av-
erage in high school.
The term "qualified student for
college" is a misleading term, and
can be used only in connection
with a specific college. Ferris wll
admit students with a C average.
The University wants a C-plus
average aryd students in the top

Colleges recognize their selec-
tivity now is high, and don't want
to get more selective. They doint
out there are so many students
who qualify for admission that the
time is approaching when the
postmark on the letter will deter-
mine final placement. It is now at
a "first come first serve basis" at
CMU and Ferris, officials said.

As 'Consistent'
A recent grant of $1.25 million
for Michigan State University's
two-year medical program is con-
sistent with medical agreements
between MSU and the other state-
supported schools, according t,, an
official here.
Dean William Hubbard of the
Medical School explained that
the Kellogg Foundation gift will
support a two-year human medi-
cine program at MSU in accord-
ance with a pact initialed by MSU
and the University last year.'
This agreement called for MSU
to develop its two-year program
k nrx n a " ai -m~ipC.V' aA.Y u WR.Vw P

by a list of corresponding demands
that SGC should make upon the
University. The report, submitted
by Barry Bluestone, '66, separated;
student grievances into thirteen
categories, 'ranging from the cru-
cial student parking problem to
the need for academic reform in
some branches of the University.
Executive Vice-President Doug-
las Brook, '65, moved an amend-
ment to create a separate com-
mittee for each of the grievance
categories in order to facilitate
and improve the processing of the
complex Bluestone motion.
Following considerable debate,
Council passed the amendment-
and agreed to let the Executive
Committee set the number of
committees to be created and to
tentatively establish the mem-
bership of each committee. How-
ever, it was agreed that all Coun-
cil members would sit on a com-
mittee, and would be joined by
other student appointees.
Thed gExecutive Committee was
also delegated the authority to
establish deadlines for the final
reports of each committee. Coun-
cil members expressed the desire
to have these deadlines set within
the next two or three weeks so that
Council might act on the total
grievance motion before the up-
coming elections.
Council then moved into com-
mittee of the whole discussion on
the grievance report, investigating
the document section by section
and making -recommendations as
to each grievance area might best
be researched.
The apartment house project,
which does not provide for any
parking spaces for the building's
80 residents, was discussed by
Chester Roberts, a representative
of the South University merchants,
and by Robert Weaver of the
Towne Realty Corporation which
is planning the structure.
They said that they were fully
aware of the critical parking sit-
uation in the campus area, but
that it was not the sole responsi-
bility of the builder to solve any
local parking problem. They said
that whole topic of parking in
Ann Arbor, and specifically in the
campus area, is the joint concern
of the city government, and the
University as well as with the
merchants and realtors.
They added that the parking
roblem should be broadly inves-

BARRY BLUESTONE
. By NANCY STEIN
An ad hoc committee for Stu-
dent Government Council will dis-
cuss the possibility of organizing-
a student employes' association to-t
night.j
The association would have
power to negotiate with adminis-
tration officials regarding the
wages, hours and working condi-
tions of student employes and
would not be affiliated with SGC.
The SGC committee has investi-
gated the working conditions of
students and says the University
is paying lower wages than other
universities in the Midwest.
Barry Bluestone, '66, chairman
of the committee, said he hopes
that students will voice their
opinions on the feasability and
possible structure of the associa-
tion. If enough interest is shown,
the students can then investigate
means by which an organization
could be set up, he added.
There are over 900 students
employed in the dormitories, the
Michigan Union, the Women's
League and the libraries.
In comparison with University
wages, the committee has found
that minimum wages at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin and Michigan
State University are $1.25 per
hour, and those at the University
of Minnesota are $1.37. Minimum
student wages at the University
are $1.

STATE LAW:
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
A student has raised formal objection to the University's policy
requiring its employes to sign a loyalty oath.
But administrative officials replied yesterday that the oath is;
a state requirement which has drawn few objections in its thirty-
year history.
The oath, which is signed by both academic and non-academic
personnel, states'

Say Seizures Will
Lead to Instability,
Harm War Effort
By The Associated Press
S 'A I G O N - Premier Nguyen
Khanh's government abandoned a
forgive-and-forget policy yester-
day and ' placed five leaders of
Sunday's abortive coup under
arrest. Prospects are that all will
be tried and punished. -.
} At the same time, Khanh and
the young generals who supported
him during the coup meted out
penalties and rewards in a sake-
up of 'South Viet Nam's Amercan-~
supported m i 1i t a r y command
structure.
The South Vietnamese govern-
ment had announced Monday that
none of the leaders' involved In 'the
rebellion would e punishe. ut.'°
the harmony apparentl aisnvan-
ished. Fears ,that rebel elements
might strike anew were apparent-
ly behind the disciplinary action.
Yestei'day Brig. Gen. Lam 'Van
Phat, the former interior minister
who organized the abortive coup,
and denounced Khanh as a traitor,
became the fifth leader of the
ex-rebel faction to give up.
The changes in command evi-
dently will mean further slippage
in the U.S. - Vietnames war
agkinst the Communist Viet Cong,
previously impeded by two mili-
tary coups and Buddhist-student
uprising in the last 10 months.
Regardless of his ability, it takes
a new commander time to pick
up the reins xf his predecessor.
And, in the tradition of Viet-
namese military politics, the
changes undoubtedly will be felt
far down the chain of command.
Usually reliable military lead-
ers indicated that Phat and Col.
Huyen Van Ton, another c up
leader arrested yesterday, had
planned to convert part , of the
Mekong Delta into an anutonG-
mous zone,dcutting off communi-
cations and the road to, Saigon.
However, physical evidence was
'lacking ,and both surrendered
readily.,
Many officials who supported
Khanh during the coup have call-
ed for a further purge of the offi-
cers corps to weed out divisive,
corrupt officers, including gen-
erals. Sources said enine or ten
more senior officers 'might de'
dismissed.
The current crisis in Viet Nam .
began earlier this month with the
wholesale firing by Khanh of var-
ious officials and generals, all of
whom had been - blacklisted by
Buddhists, student dissidents, and
various political parties.
The- commanders were angry,
and .many of them charged .piv-,
ately that Khanh ws a "prisoner
of the Buddhists." The man ap-
parently most angered was Phat,
a Roman Catholic ousted as inter-
ior minister.
Phat initially led the forces
that entered Saigon. He turned
the command over to 'Brig. Gen.
Thaw Van Duc after loyalist offi-
cers made it plain they loathed
Phat and would not .bargain with
him.
Duc felt that political factions,
religious leaders, students and
others were systematically pulling
Khanh's regime to pieces with no
resistance from the premier

The' University has no inten-
tion of testing the oath, the of-

the requirements for all state em-'

Capitalism has run its course
and industrial socialism is on the
verge of gaining powerful influ-
ence in the country, according to
Henning Blomen, candidate for
vice-president on the Socialist La-'
bor ticket.
Blomen's speech, sponsored by
the Socialist Labor party of Wash-
tenaw County, was presented last
night at the YM-YWCA.'
"It is evident that capitalism is
today lording itself 'over a sick
and insecure social structure, the
inevitable product of any system
governed by the dictation of the
few," Blomen said. /
Economics
"Humans, when placed in the
anti-human positions of poverty
are bound to blow up un'der the
stresses of mental breakdown. Ne-
gro have often been reduced tc
this state in order to serve the
capital interests of society."
"With these active forces work-
ing to control the society and with
-the great increases in industria'
automation," he said, "an even
greater by-product looms in the
uture to haunt the capitalistic
system-the growth of job inse-
curity.
Blomen emphasized that auto-
mation is displacing thousands o;
workers each day. He quoted
President Lyndon B. Johnson ae
saying, "By 1970 he will require.
22 million less laborers 'to do the,
same amount of work as we are
engaged in today."
This condition in his opinion
has the inevitable end oftrans-
forming the poor into a mort-
gaged clsas of citizens.

"Our party's mission is to in-
form the American .people of the

The petition initiating the

James K. Pollock of the political
science department. It was par-
ticularly different from previous
requests for action on the center
in that it was directed to the
Regents as well as the .adminis-
tration.
The present petition received
the unanimous consent of the
University Senate last spring.
The petition urged the Regents
"to take all, steps necessary to
bring the faculty center into be-
ing at the earliest possible late."
