Strike Likely at Ford
'Less Optimistic' About Settlement
Before 10 A.M. Deadline

DETROIT (P)-Top negotiators
for Ford Motor Co. and the Unit-
ed Auto Workers union said yes-
terday they were "less optimistic".
than before that a strike can
be avoided at Ford by today's 10
a.m. deadline.

Both UAW President Walter P.
Reuther and Ford Vice-President
Malcolm Denise agreed as they en-
tered a 24-hour, showdown bar-
gaining session there still were is-
sues on the table that could erupt
in a strike of Ford's 165,000 pro-
duction worlkers.
Reuther expressed most concern
in the areas of production stand-
ards and working conditions and
said there must be some give on
the part of the company "or. they
will stop making cars tomorrow."

It's safe to assume that the
educational value of the residen-
tial college will be significantly af-
fected by the nature of its living
Just how to maximize that value
how to construct residences
which will enhance meaningful
interaction-is the big question.
Fer In students, it's an assign-
ment in brainstorming.
The students-an advisory com-
mittee to the residential college's
two top faculty planners-'-yester-
day opened what will be a long
and thoughtful dialogue on the
housing question. In their meet-
ing with Associate Dean of the
Literary College Burton D. Thuma
-director of the residential col-
lege-and Prof. Theodore New-
comb of the sociology and psychol-

ogy departments, they ranged over
the whole field of housing-related

The ideas offered were neces-
sarily tentative, but that didn't
mean .the talk wasn't freewheel-
ing and somewhat idealistic. For
the basic purpose of the discus-
sions is to consider all proposals,
regardless of their radicalism..
If any of the ideas presented
are actually implemented, the res-
idential college is certain to be
an exciting place.
Central to the discussion were
the concepts of flexibility and va-
riety. Both. students and faculty
agreed that residential college liv-
ing units should have a wide va-
riety of room and building. styles
and should allow students and ad-
ministrators maximum discretion
in arranging the living quarters.

The question of how many stu-
dents this sense should and could

tion of how independent the units
of 30 should be from each other.
While Newcomb had originally
thought of connecting the units
some of the committee felt the
units should be completely iso-
Nevertheless, all agreed that
certain auxiliary facilities ought
to be shared by all units. These
facilities-libraries, snack bars and
larger classrooms-would serve to
unify the larger residential col-
lege population.
Lounges, Seminar Rooms
Other kinds of facilities, how-'
ever-lounges and seminar rooms
-ought to be included in each
unit, the committee felt.

Dialogue Opens

Other members stressed the val-
ue of having some regular classes
held within these rooms. The in-
formality of the residences would
lend itself significantly to more
stimulating discussion, they con-
A further unique feature of each
living unit might be an attractive

Newcomb said. An important func-
tion of this adviser, who would
hopefully be given teaching-fellow
status, would be serving as an aca-
demic counselor for the residents
of the unit.
Thus the committee almost
unanimously agreed that estab-
lishing peer counselling' within the
residence-with the graduate ad-
viser having minimum policing
responsibilities-would contribute
a good deal toward uniting living
and learning experiences.

The unemployment rate of "al-
most 10 per cent" in this country,
during booming economic condi-
tions was another example of the
need for expansion. "Automation
,is going to hurt employment,"
Shaw noted. "Employment is be-

attacked the extreme rightists
who were absolutely loyal to a

be willing to go to war to pro-

Telegrams calling the session

The urgent call caught the
capitol off-guard except for Wal-
lace's closest aides, who declined
comment. The' governor's tele-
gramsX to legislators said:
."I believe that we together can
perform a service to our people
and the people of this country by
initiating action to protect our
local school systems.
"I am certain that each of you
will feel this action to be appro-
priate and timely, since this im-

acted upon, I am requesting that
this extraordinary session be

The resolution could be the
first step in what, the governor

that if only Alabama approves
