Viet Nam Moves
ODESSA, Tex. (P)--Republican
Presidential nominee Barry Gold-
water carried his conservative
campaign to Texas yesterday and
charged the Democrats stumbled
into a war in South Viet Nam they
do not know how to end.
He also charged that:
Defense Secretary Robert Mc-
Namara is trigger happy and has
recklessly committed the United
States to war in Viet Nam.
That President Lyndon B. John-
son is using files of the Internal
Revenue Service to coerce per-
Tiat Johnson's Vice-Presidential
running mate, Hubert H. Hum-
phrey, wants to do away with the
oil depletion tax allowance.
No Easy Solution
Goldwater said there is "no
quick, easy solution" to Viet Nam.
"They call me trigger happy.
I'll tell you the most trigger happy
man in the country is Yo-Yo,
his name for McNamara.
"He got us in war down there
and didn't tell us about it," Gold-
He also charged McNamara or-
dered American soldiers to shoot
back in Viet Nam without think-
ing through the long-range im-
plications of that action.
Goldwater also defended his
Vice-Presidential running mate,
William Miller, against published
reports that Miller acted in Con-
gress to help a company in which
he held an interest.
As Goldwater winged over the
Southwest opening the third full
week of his campaign it was learn-
ed that a public opinion poll com-
pleted Sunday for the Republican
National Committee reports that
some members of the GOP who
had defected to the Democrats
now are returning.
The Senator himself feels, ac-
cording to those close to him, that
one of his major tasks will be to
keep Republicans within the party.
fold and attract once again those
who have switched.
City To Change
Ann Arbor's ward boundaries
will be redrawn to equalize the
number of registered voters in
each of the five wards.
Mayor Cecil O. Creal recom-
mended the redistricting to coun-
cil last Monday and stressed that
he favored a bi-partisan commit-
tee to survey the matter.
Creal said "a bi-partisan com-
mittee of four members from th
council, and the city clerk, might
draw up an outline of projected
new boundaries for the wards aft-
er they had studied the newreg-
istration report this fall."
It has not been decided for cer-
tain, however, whether the redis-
tricting will be done by the bi-
partisan committee or by the city
clerk's office. This will be decided
by the vote of the people.
Creal said, "The differences ir

NASSAU (I)-Bahamian govern-
ment sources speculated today that
Fidel Castro might have opened
an air route between Cuba and
Nassau in the hope that he could
bring home badly needed Ameri-
can materials from the Bahamas.
"We have told him that we will
detain and deport any passengers
coming in from Cuba on his
planes," one high government
source said. "That would make it
rather pointless for him to operate
a passenger service.
"We had overlooked the pos-
sibility that he might try to buy
American spare parts, machinery
and other goods and fly them to
"He can buy these goods in
Nassau just as well as he could
Government officials started a
hurried search of Bahamian cus-
toms laws, trying to find one that
could be used to block such aerial
shipments out of the islands.
If none is found, one source
said the Governor could call the
cabinet into session to draft regu-
lations which would cover the
The government-operated Cu-
bana Airlines flew a Russian-built
Ilyushin plane to Nassau yester-
day and announced it would fly
a weekly schedule between here
and Havana. The plane carried
only mail and a six-man crew.
Some 300 Bahamians, angered
by the British government's ap-
proval of the flights under a 16-
year-old air pact with Cuba,
shouted "Castro go home" and
brandished placards with such
slogans as "Yankees si, Commun-

he would take back to Cuba "any-

Exise Tax Cut
ATLANTIC CITY (M)-President
Lyndon B. Johnson said yesterday
that he favors a cut in excise
taxes next year and warned of
those "who rant and rave about
the dangers of progress."
"We will not permit federal rev-
enues to become a drag on our
economy," the President told the
nation's steelworkers in reference
to an excise tax cut.
Johnson spoke to the 12th bien-
nial convention of the United
Steelworkers of America in Con-
vention Hall, where he was nom-
inated for President last month.
He said his administration would
help the helpless and the oppressed
of the nation through a program
of medical care for the aged un-
der Social Security, through
strengthened unemployment com-
pensation and minimum wages,
and through fair, just and equal
opportunity for all Americans.
"We will do all these things be-
cause we love people instead of
hate them," Johnson said, depart-
ing from his prepared text, be-
cause we have faith in America,
not fear of the future, because you
are strong men of vision instead
of frightened crybabies; because
you know it takes a man who loves
his country to build a house in-
stead of raving, ranting, dema-
gogue who wants to tear down
The President also warned the
steelworkers to "beware of those
who fear and those who doubt
and those who rave and rant about
the dangers of progress.
"Beware of those who say 'don't
touch this,' 'leave that alone,' 'let's
wipe this out,' 'let's go back to

SAN FRANCISCO (P)--Secre-
tary of State Dean Rusk reempha-
sized yesterday that the United
States will keep on sending war-
ships into North Viet Nam's Gulf
of Tonkin and "any interference
will be met immediately."
"We will be in there from time
to time and we expect to be free
to do so," he said.
U.S. destroyers last Friday fired
upon and presumably hit what
appeared to be four or five hos-
tile ships. Rusk said these ships
were "in formation and traveling

SHEFFIELD, England - The
University of Sheffield, one of
England's "red brick universities,"
is a dynamic, growing institution
whose new student union could be
easily transplanted to any mid-
western state university were it
not for the well-stocked bar in one
of the lounges.
The union building and the stu-
dent government which runs it
are part of the new philosophy of
higher education which Sheffield
manifests. The union is the center
of social and cultural life of the
university and is completely di-
rected by a representative stu-
Student representatives also
have a voice on the governing
bodies of the university and, in
most instances, are seeking a
greater influence in the policy-
making sectors of the universities.
The development of student
government and the campaign for
students to share the administra-
tion of their own education is
closely connected with the develop-
ment of the modern universities
In this respect the redbrick uni-
versities are far ahead of the
"Oxbridge" colleges. Undergradu-
ate dissidents at Oxford and Cam-
bridge are just now attempting to
establish the student's right to
influence university policy, follow-
ing the example of the younger
The University of Sheffield was
originally founded to provide local
industry and business the tech-
nically competent workers the
areas needed. It has since expand-
ed into all the liberal arts as well,
but remains a nationally recog-
nized top rate institution for tech-
Its students are drawn mainly
from middle and working class
families, selected competitively on
the basis of academic ability, but
never financial ability. All uni-
versity students have their tuition
paid by the University Grants
Committee, the administrative arm
of the Ministry of Education.
The drive for a stronger voice
in determining university policy
parallels the American student's
quest for the same influence. At
present, students at the red brick
universities are represented on the
highest governing body, the Uni-
versity Court, which is a figure-
head organization, and on the
lower scale subcommittees which
have the power to recommend
policy but not determine it.
Present efforts are aimed at
representation on the two func-
tioning bodies, the Senate and the
Council, which includes graduates
of the university. Sheffield held
elections in June for graduate
representatives. In a surprising
upset, one of the positions was
captured by a young iconoclast
who had been an officer of the
Sheffield student union and is
currently general secretary of the
National Union of Students.
David Heap's election means
that the campaign for an under-
graduate student voice on the
Council will be supported by agita-
tion from within as well as from
without. The results will probably
have repercussions that extend
beyond the University of Sheffield.
"Agitation" is a misnoper for
the kind of activity in which the
British student engages. The ra-
tional, unruffled, English temper
also characterizes student politics
and marks student efforts on the
