Rhodesia Ceases
Indepedence Bid
U.S. and Britain Pressure Smith
To Curtail Agitation for Freedom
SALISBURY, Rhodesia WP)-Under pressure from the British
government, The Commonwealth and the United States, Prime
Minister Ian Smith of Rhodesia yesterday called off promises--and
threats-to have Rhodesia independent before Christmas.
Stunned by the stiff resistance of these three big forces against
him, Smith said in a television interview after a Parliamentary
debate on the issue of Rhodesia's independence:
"The British government's moves of the past week have upset
everything and I can see no prospect of independence by Christmas
as I had hoped." Earlier this week, Smith declared that he would

Special To The Daily
YPSILANTI -- Mrs. Elly Peter-
son, Republican challenger for the
United States Senate seat cur-
rently held by Sen. Philip Hart
(D-Mich) predicted yesterday that
President Lyndon B. Johnson will
carry Michigan next Tuesday.
However she said he will not
carry the state by the overwhelm-
ing margin that some have pre-
"I link my chances of victory to
the size of Johnson's margin of
victory. If the Presidential vote
should be close, I have a very good
chance of winning," she said.
Strike Hurts
Mrs. Peterson, who toured the
southeastern part of the state yes-
terday, said the Detroit news-
paper strike had hurt her most
of any candidate this year.
"I definitely need news cover-
age in the Detroit area if I am to
develop a sizable following there.
Otherwise, the straight party vote
for Johnson will hurt me badly.
"For this reason, I have de-
voted 65 per cent of my campaign
time to the Detroit area and other
large counties. I have also visited
every county in the state with one
exception in an effort to show that
my opponent isn't close enough to
the people to be an effective rep-
Cleared in Controversy
Mrs. Peterson also expressed
doubts that the controversy over
the ouster of top National Guard
officials in Michigan had hurt her
Earlier this month, Gov. George
Romney and Auditor General
Billie S. Farnum announced the
dismissal of three top officers in
the Michigan National Guard for
irregularities in the disposal of
Guard-owned lakefront property.
State Democrats had pointed
out that Mrs. Peterson's husband,
Army Col. Merrit Peterson, had
obtained some of the lots in ques-
She asserted yesterday that her
husband had obtained the lots in
a legal manner and said that Far-
num's report had cleared him of
any illegality.
Commenting on her educational
views, Mrs. Peterson lashed out at
Hart for his vote against the
Prouty Bill, which would have
given college students income tax
deductions for the portions of
their incomes that they spent for
educational purposes.
Hart's Interest
"This vote shows Hart as he
really is: interested only in fol-
lowing the administration's 'line'
rather than looking out for the in-
terests of his constituents," she
She added that while she does

whites and Africans, who were
concerned lest he mistake minority

it might be necessary for the gov-
ernment to declare independenceI
to "save the country." He did not

might be.

Twenty Houses
As Yet Fail
To Resubmit
More than twenty fraternities
and sororities have failed as yet
to resubmit their complete mem-
bership statements in accordance
with student Government Coun-
cil's membership committee's re-
quest, according to its chairman
William Burns.
If this situation is not rectified
by the Saturday deadline, Burns
indicated the houses will be prose-
cuted through judiciary apparatus
set up by SGC last year. The
ultimate penalty is withdrawal of
Burns said that oversights by
the houses can probably be blamed
for a good number of the missing
statements. However, he said sev-
eral affiliates appear to be run-
ning into difficulties with their
national chapters.
Hence, the committee expects
several houses to fail meeting the
Some Already Incorrect
In addition, many of the state-
men.s already turned in are faulty
and incomplete in content, Burns
said. However, some of these can
be attributed to misunderstand-
ings on the part of the houses as
to exactly what material the mem-
bership committee was looking for
in the statements.
Burns said that the committee
has not yet decided what action
they would take against affiliates
who fail to submit their state-
ments. He said that they would
probably first send messages to the
delinquent houses urging imme-
diate conformity to the commit-
tee's request.
If the houses still fail to turn
in complete statements, then the
committee will probably send the
cases to the three-man SGC
Membership Tribunal for judiciary
action, Burns said.
Negligence Cited
Intrafraternity Council Presi-
dent Lawrence Lossing, '65, said
that he suspects hat many of the
negligent houses have just for-
gotten to turn in their new state-
ments. He indicated that he didn't
expect any difficulties from mem-
bers of the fraternity system.
Panhellenic Association Presi-
dent Ann Wickins, '65, said that
the reason several sororities had
not turned in their new state-
ments was that they were not sure
exactly what information the
committee was requiring.
"As far as I know, all the
sororities will submit their state-
ments on time. If there are in-
adequacies in their content, they
will not be deliberate but will stem
from misunderstandings," Miss
Wickins said. "I'm sure the cur-
rent situation won't be taking the
same bad developments as last
year," she added.
On Oct. 23, 1963, the member-1
ship committee requested that all
houses submit membership state-
ments. Five sororities delayed
turning in their statements until
the Jan. 15 deadline set by the
The present deadline of Oct. 30
was decided upon last May 11 by
the committee for the purpose of
getting all affiliates on campus to
update their membership state-
ments in accordance with the new
organization rules.

Faculty May Study
Creation of Centers
. To facilitate broad faculty par-
ticipation in the creation of new
research centers and institutes, a
University Senate subcommittee
has proposed appointing ad hoc
faculty committees to investigate
the purposes in establishing such
According to a tentative state-
ment by the Research Policy Sub-
committee, these faculty groups
"should not only make sure that
all units of the University with a
possible interest have a chance to
contribute ideas, participate or
object, but it should also give
very careful attention to the ques-
tion of how the proposed unit will
contribute to the teaching func-
tion of the University."
The recommendation was pre-
sented to the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
at its October meeting. While
agreeing in principle, SACUA ask-
ed the research committee to re-
vise some of the wording and to
clarify some definitions in the

The statement will then be pre-
sented co the November meeting
of the Senate for discussion
though no vote will be asked.

tion in research policy. since the
establishment of c enters and in-
strutes is curren..v handled ad-
n 'nistratively by t'le office of re-
search vice-presid and those
people whb will be directly in-
volved with the new units.
While there is no pa'ticular
grievance behind its proposal, the
research committee feels that "the

The committee would like to en-

The ad hoc committees would
be composed of faculty "who have
some knowledge of the general
area of research proposed" for the
new center or institute, "but they
should not be the people propos-
ing" the new unit "or suggested
as its directors."
' Make Investigations
The group would "make a
thorough investigation and con-
duct public hearings at which in-
terested members of the Univer-
sity community would have a
chance to express their views."
Thus, "after a period of opera-
tion in dealing with proposals for
new centers or institutes, 0,e Re-
search Policy Committee should
also consider such questions as
lines of administrative responsbil-
ity of existing centers. Ultimately
the committee should concern it-
self with the question of the con-
tinuation or modification of uni;s
when it becomes apparent that a
unit is no longer making an im-
portant contribution to the Uni-
versity," the report stated.
