Court Demands
District Changes
Virginia's Senate Terms Reduced
From Two to Four Years by Action
WASHINGTON (P')-Virginia lost in the Supreme Court yester-
day an effort to stay a lower court's legislative reapportionment order
that would cut the terms of incumbent state senators from four to
two years.
Chief Justice Earl Warren turned down without comment a peti-
tion by State Atty. Gen. Robert Y. Button for a stay so the question
could be considered by the full Supreme Court on a later appeal.
This lets stand an order by a three-judge federal court in Alex-
andria, Va., which on Sept. 19 ordered Virginia to reapportion both
its House of Delegates and Senate by Dec. 15. At the same time, the

Steel Rise
LOS ANGELES OP) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson let it be known
yesterday he is prepared to take a
determined stand against any
steel price increase at this time.
The President's views were made
known to newsmen by associates
who said he has been keeping
close tabs on reports of a possible
price hike and feels that one
would be hard to justify now.
Johnson, who is studying eco-
nomic reports between campaign
speeches, also feels that the na-
tion's economy has enough mo-
mentum to maintain its advance
at least until mid-1965.
Some reports from his economic
advisers suggest the possibility of
a sag in the economic upswing
about July 1, 1965 unless steps are
taken to head it off.
Steps under study include revi-
sion of excise taxes, due to expire
next June 30. Johnson is repre-

tribunal directed that both Sen-
ate and House seats be put up
for election by January 1966.
November Election
The lower court followed up a
Supreme Court order of last June
that Virginia must reapportion its
legislature as nearly as possible
on the basis of population in time
for the already scheduled Novem-
ber 1965 election.
Current members of the House
of Delegates were chosen in 1963,
for two-year terms. The lower
court said "orderly procedure"
would suggest that the members
continue until expiration of their
terms in January 1966.
But the incumbent senators,
also chosen in 1963, were elected
to four-year terms. The court said
there is "no warrantable founda-
tion" for permitting them to serve
beyond January 1966.
Button told Warren that no
other Federal District Court had
ordered a state legislature to cut
the terms of its own members. He
said the Supreme Court had allow-
ed members of both houses of the,
Maryland legislature to stay in
office until 1967 and Button asked
that Virginia get similar treat-
However, it was noted in New
York that special Federal Court
has ordered that state to reap-
portion by next April and to hold'
a special election in 1965. This
would mean legislators elected
this year will serve only one year1
instead of the normal two.t
Gov. A. S. Harrison already hasj
made preliminary plans to call the
legislature into special session in

and three of the invaders have
been captured.
A government spokesman said
"prompt action is being taken by
security forces" and a curfew has<
been imposed in the suspected
landing area on the Malacca coast.
He gave no further details.
Other official sources said the
size of the landing party was not
immediately known. No contact<
was immediately reported between
government troops and guerrillas.
About 60
Reports without immediate con-=
firmation here said the invasion
group was believed to number
about 60 and was said to have
crossed the narrow Strait of Ma-
lacca from the Indonesian island
of Sumatra in five boats.
These reports said the boats
were found at the mouth of the
Kesang River on the Malacca
border with Johore state, some 80
air miles soutli of Kuala Lumpur.
The reported landing site is 70
miles northwest of Johore's Pon-
tian region where 108 Indonesian-<
directed guerrillas slipped ashore
in three groups last Aug. 17 to
op'en up a second front in In-
donesia's undeclared jungle war
against Malaysia.
Indonesia has pledged to crush
this British-backed federation.
Guerrilla raiders for the past year
have been making quick guerrilla
strikes at Malaysian Borneo from
across a shared border with In-
donesian Borneo.
The Pontian landings were fol-
lowed by the airdropping of 96,
Indonesian-led paratroopers into
the inland Labis area of Johore
last Sept. 2.?
The invasions led Malaysia's
government to declare a nation-f
wide emergency and put the coun-I
try, including its territorial waters
and air space, under tight secur-
ity regulations.

With off-campus h o u s i n g
crowded and no new dormi-
tories planned until 1966, the
International Center is facing
serious problems in housing
new foreign students.
Mrs. Kathleen Mead, admin-
istrative assistant at the cen-
ter, explains that this year for
the first time all newly enter-
ing foreign students had to find
off-campus housing. In pre-
vious years, the University has
had s o m e dormitory space
available for them.
But this year the University
admitted about 250 more fresh-
men than it had expected, and
was forced to locate 450 stu-
dents in temporary housing at
the beginning of the semester.
All students are now out of the
temporary housing, but the
University still has no extra
space in the residence halls.
Serious Problems
Foreign students face serious
problems in trying to get places
in the residence halls. The Uni-'
versity sends housing applica-
tions only to students who have
paid their enrollment deposit.
But foreign students run into
trouble paying their deposits,
Mrs. Mead explains. Some don't
have the money to send in ad-
vance, and some are barred by
their countries from sending
large amounts of cash. As a re-
sult, the majority of foreign
students can't pay the deposit
until they arrive in the fall. By
this fall, the overflow of Ameri-
can students had taken all
available dormitory space.
The dormitories aren't the
only place foreign students have
problems. Off-campus housing
is as scarce as it has been in
years. "Through the years I've
been able to build a list of
moderately priced apartments
that foreign students can rent,"
Mrs. Mead says. "But this year
we lost about 100 rooms in old
houses which are being torn
down to make way for new
apartment buildings."
New Apartments
The new apartments are of-
ten too expensive for foreign
students, she explains, although
sometimes foreign students get
around this difficulty by "bud-
dying up" with four or five peo-
ple in an apartment.
Almost all foreign students
want to live with an American
family, but none are living with
Ann Arbor families this year.
There are two reasons for this,

Foreign Houtsing--Crowded

Mrs. Mead says. Many Ann
Arbor residents are reluctant to
offer the use of their homes to
students on a long-range basis,
and Ann Arbor is in any case
too small a community to ab-
sorb any appreciable number of
But many Ann Arbor fami-.
lies do act as hosts to foreign

TER---Its problem is to help
house the 1300 students from
foreign nations attending the
students on a short-range
basis. The Ann Arbor Council
of Churches sponsors a pro-
gram under which local "host
families" receive foreign stu-
dents on visits to their homes.
The experience students get in
observing American customs
and life is "very useful," Mrs.
Mead comments.
First Nights
In addition, Mrs. Edna Bald-
win, wife of Rev. DeWitt Bald-
win, coordinator of religious af-
fairs at the University, arranges
for foreign students to stay in
Ann Arbor homes the first few
nights they are in town. "125
families offered this fall to
meet students when they ar-
rived and take them into their
homes for a good dinner and a
badly needed rest," Mrs. Mead

Presidents, approved the joint re-

The group reportedly rejected
a proposal to make this fall's re-

stead, to work experimentally to
see if a joint request is possible.
The 10 schools have already

The motion states that "SGC

of the total effort of this nation

The organization rules, present-
ed for Council's examination, had
been extensively reorganized and
