VATICAN CITY (.)-England's
leading Roman Catholic church-
man called yesterday for revision
with laymen's help of the Vatican
Ecumenical Council's document on
modern world problems to cover
such things as birth control pills.
Archbishop John C. Heenan of
Westminster attacked the docu-
ment, or Scheme, as "a set of
platitudes" and brought the con-
traceptive pill issue openly before
the assembly in St. Peter's Basili..
ca for the first time.
He lashed out at the clerics
who prepared the document as
men "who hardly know the world
as it really is" and said the re-
sults would dash the hopes of
everyone who has been awaiting
it. .
Heenan proposed that a new
commission of lay specialists and
priests with long pastoral exper-
ience be set up immediately to do
over the document. He suggested a
long recess of the council in the
interval. I
"After three or four years let
the fourth and final session of
the council convene to discuss all
these social problems," he said.
He argued that the council would
become "a laughing stock in the
eyes of the world" if it rushed
through a debate on world hun-
ger, nuclear war and family life.
Others took it as an attack on
those in the church who have cri-
ticized traditional bans against
contraception and want changes.

the suspension will not become
effective unless Voice is brought
before JJC and convicted for sim-
ilar violations before May, 1965.
Voice was charged with spon-
soring an illegal rally in the Diag
and with distributing pamphlets
illegally in the Fishbowl.
The Voice rally was held Tues-
day, Oct. 5, at noon on the Diag
in order to raise mass student
support for a "student action
league" which could effectively
act on student grievances. The
rally had been inspired by the
demonstrations at the University
of California at Berkeley and had
expressed sympathy for Berkeley's
Barry Bluestone, '66, and Rich-
ard Horevitz, '67, representing
Voice, explained that their organi-
zation had voted to hold the rally
on the Diag even though they had
been denied permission by John
Bingley, director of student activi-
ties and organizations.
The ruling on no demonstrations'
on the Diag was instituted last
spring at the request of the Gen-
eral Library and the literary col-
Bluestone added that a repre-
sentative of Voice had gone to
Thomas Smithson, '65, president
of Student Government Council,
and scheduled the rally for the

to hold the rally on the Diag.
When asked to justify their
actions, Bluestone explained that

The Peking People's Daily, or-
gan of the Chinese Communist

The People's Daily said the Com-
munist Chinese proposal for a

ons is "practical, reasonable, eas-
ily feasible and involves no ques-
tion of control."
The editorial added that "if all
the countries concerned are will-

the danger of nuclear war will be
immediately reduced. After that,
it would be possible to discuss the
questions of the cessation of all
kinds of nuclear tests, the prohi-
bition of the export, importrpro-
liferation, manufacture and stock-
piling of nuclear weapons and
their destruction."

State Loyalty Oath--Constitutional?

Despite the recent reversal of
a Washington state loyalty oath
for professors by the United
States Supreme Court, Univer-
sity faculty members will be
obligated to sign their, "oath
of office" in the foreseeable
In fact there is a good chance
that the state of Washington
will replace its "unconstitution-
ally vague," loyalty oath and
disclaimer with the simpler
state of Michigan oath.
Spokesmen for the Univer-
sity, the American Association
of University Professors, and
the American Civil Liberties
Union all point out that the
Supreme Court decision does
not affect the Michigan oath.
In contrast to Michigan's
oath which merely has the
signer support the United
States and Michigan constitu-
tions, the Washington oath re-
quired support of constitution,
flag, governmental institutions,
reverence of law and order, and
a disclaimer on Communist
party membership.
On June 1 of this year the
Court hanced down a 7-2 de-
cision striking down the oath.
The case was argued for a
University of Washington pro-
fessor by the AAUP and the
The court contended that
the language of the oath was
so vague that professors at-
tending international scientific
meetings where Communist
scholars were present, or dis-

"I do solemnly swear that

of my ability."
cussing the concept of world
government could not be sure
if they were acting as "sub-
ver'sive persons."
In replacing their oath,
Washington officials have ask-
ed the University of Michigan


for a copy of its oath of office.
University Attorney Edward
Cummiskey said yesterday he
understands the University of
Washington will probably draft
a new oath similar to Michi-
gan 's.
Michigan is one of six states
that requires some form of
loyalty oath from its employes.
The others are California, Colo-
rado, Indiana, New York and
It is important to note that
the Court .decision does not
necessarily invalidate all of
these oaths. In the Washington
decision the court does not con-
tend a state does not have a
right to require a loyalty oath
of a faculty member as a con-
dition of employment. Rather
the ruling only disallows a state
from requiring an oath which
is "too vague."
Too Vague?
Is the Michigan oath too
vague? It isn't according to
Ernest Mazey, director of the
ACLU of Michigan, who said
yesterday he has, "no quarrel,"
wi .h the Michigan oath of of-
Mazey's views are partially
supported by Prof. Arthur Carr
of the English d'epartment,
President of the local AAUP
chapter. Carr calls the oath a
"nuisance," and says many fac-
ulty members resent it. How-
ever he does not foresee the
repeal of the oath of office in
the near future.


What would happen if fac-
ulty members refused to sign
the oath of office? A spokesman
for the local branch of the
ACLU pointed out a statute on
the books which in such a case
gives the state the right to
withhold all funds from the
This provision represents an
interesting distinction in the
minds of legislators. All Uni-
versity employes are required to
sign the oath of office. How-
ever the, state only has the
right to withhold funds if a
faculty member refuses to sign
the oath. Should a typist or
maintenance man refuse, the
state would have no legal basis
to withdraw its financial sup-
port of the University.
"This gives the implication
that professors are considered
to have a high degree of dis-
loyalty," the ACLU spokesmen
He is in agreement with Prof.
Carr who points out that the
oath meets with "cynical re-
ception," of foreign faculty
members. Carr went on to say,
"I think these oaths reflect the

Chief Urges
Seeks Cause of Exit;
Says Ex-Premier
Helped. World Peace
Nations Secretary - Geeral ' U
Thant yesterday called for a "sum-
mit" conference between the
world's five nuclear powers to be
held next year.
Thant made the statement at a
news conference, where he also
said it would be helpful and de-
sirable if Nikita Khrushchev could
tell the world about the circum-
stances leading to his exit as
leader of the Soviet Union.
In making the proposal for a
meeting of the world's atomic
powers, Thant said he was en-
dorsing a recent suggestion made
by former Kansas Gov. Alf M.
Landon, the 1936 Republican pres-
idential nominee.
Thant described Peking's nu-
clear test explosion as regrettable
and in violation of a 1962 General
Assembly resolution condemning
all testing.
Then. he fished out a newspaper
clipping containing the Landon
suggestion, and said he approved
of it.
"I feel that it could be very
worthwhile to have a dialogue be-
tween the United States, the So-
viet Union, the United Kingdom,
France and the People's Republic
of China perhaps s'ome time in
19$5,", he said. .
Asked to assess the situation in
the Soviet Union in view of the
shakeup in leadership, Thant had
praise both for Khrushchev and
the new leaders, Communist
Party Chief Leonid I. Brezhnev
and Premier Alexei N. Kosygin.
Thant said Khrushchev would
be remembered as a man who had
advanced the cause of peaceful
coexistence with some degree of
success, particularly among some
of the leaders of the Western
"It would be helpful and even
desirable if Mr. Khrushchev were
able or inclined to make a public
statement on the situation leading
to his exit," he said.
He made clear, however, that
he had transmitted no request to
Moscow that Khrushchev be per-
mitted to speak out.
He said he knew both Brezhnev
and Kosygin, and regarded the
former as a man with a deep
knowledge of world affairs.
He expressed the belief that the
two new leaders have a realistic
approach to the world situation,
and were unlikely to reverse the
course of history and take the'
Soviet Union'back to the 1953 era
of Stalinism and the Cold War.
He recalled that Nikolai T. Fed-
orenko, the Soviet Union's chief
UN delegate, had assured him that
the new government would pursue'
the same policy of peaceful co-.
existence and support of the Unit-
ed Nations.

Students Debate Merits of Romney vs. Staebler

"Staebler or Romney: Which for Michigan?" This was the topic
of debate between Alan Sager, '65L, chairman of Students for Romney,
and Mark Killingsworth, '65, chairman of Students for Staebler.
Killingsworth opened. the debate held before a sparse crowd at
the Michigan Union with an attack on Rdmney's claim to have "put
Michigan in the black." This claim is fallacious in that the increase
in the amount of revenues that the state has taken in during the
Romney administration has been due to national growth and increased
productivity of the auto industry.
Sager challenged Killingsworth's remarks saying that the Romney
administration had increased state revenues by nuisance taxes and by
the increase in industry that has located in the state due to the new
image that Romney has given Michigan.
Killingsworth came back to say that the nuisance taxes were
passed under the administration of former Gov. John B. Swainson, a
Democrat. "The present surplus isn't doing anyone in the state any

also overturned by the U.S. Su-
preme Court. This plan was.
based on an 80 per cent factor
for population and a 20 per cent
factor for land area.
Sager retorted saying that the
new districting that has been set
up for the legislative and congres-
sional districts is obviously an at-
tempt at gerrymandering in favor'
of the Democrats. Reapportion-
ment has been forced on more
than 40 states, most of these hav-
ing Democratic governors. He said
that this is no reflection on the
governors of these states, just as
it is no; reflection on Romney.
In the area of education, Sager
claimed that the Romney admin-
istration has provided more than
the nrevious funds Democratic

Hayden said that he was dis-
cussing the agreement with her
when she pulled it from his hands
and began hitting hm over the
head with her pocketbook. He
went to the police to complain and
was told to come back in 30 min-
utes. When= he returned to the
place where he had been assault-
ed he was arrested by policemen
who were there.
Hayden is waiting now for the
date to be set for the grand jury
Hayden commented that he did
not think that the arrest would
have any lasting effect on the
work of the union as a whole.
He sees Newark as a spearhead
of the civil rights movement in the
North. It has a majority of active
Negro voters and several thou-
sand poor whites. The two groups
together make an active work-
ing majority.
Newark is a national pace-set-
ter for urban renewal. It spends
as much money per capita income
as any other city in the country,
he said.
