Need for Getting
Backing from People,
By LEONARD PRATT
Special To The Daly
EAST LANSING - Gov. George
Romney sharply criticized state
educators in a speech delivered
here last night to the Michigan
Conference on Higher Education.,
Romney's comments were spark-
ed by the alleged failure of Mich-
igan educators to back his policy
of fiscal responsibility in 1962. At
that time, he urged educators to
voluntarily accept a financial cut-
back so the state could stabilize
its budget. He said he assured
educators of increased f u n d s
But Romney charged educators
failed to see the larger picture and
quibbled about. their reduced
funds. This seriously hurt his ef-
forts to get educational funds
from the Legislature,nRomney
Romney emphasized the prac-
tical aspects of obtaining funds
for education saying, "All the ed-
ucators can talk to all the com-
mittess they want, but until legis-
lative votesare affected, there will
be no more educational fund in-
creases in Michigan.
"State money for school operat-
ing costs has increased $40 mil-
lion since 1962," Romney said.
"Out of a total state budget of
$1 billion, some $600 million. 60
per bt e for education," he
"So you can't say I'm not In-
terested in education," Romney
noted, "yet there are only two
ways we can increase state funds
for education in Michigan."
These two ways are either for
state educators to develop a broad
popular support for increased
funds for higher education, or for
a crisis to develop and force more
money to be spent to keep it from
falling to pieces.
"Of these two, I don't want the
crisis approach, and neither do
you," Romney said. He emphasized
that the only alternative to this
approach was for the state's edu-
cators to take their case -to people
and, through them, to the Legis-
"We now have the colleges re-
quests for funds," Romney said,
"but the only way they can be
filled is through educational votes.
"Education must be the most
important action of government
and, outside of religion and family
life, the most important human
activity," he noted.
Considering this importance,
Romney said, it is vital that the
people of Michigan be persuaded
to make a strong committment to
education in their state.
Also at the conference, Irving
Bluestone, co-chairman of Rom-
ney's "blue ribbon" Citizen's Com-
mittee on Higher Education, gave
a general outline of the commit-
tee's report, to be released in mid-
The committee's report, expect-
ed to shape Michigan's higher edu-
cation for years to come, will fall
into four categories, Bluestone
said. These are:
--Graduate and professional
-Financial studies and
-Planning and coordination
It is estimated that the report,
originally scheduled to be released
at last night's meeting, will be
issued around Dec. 15.

'SHOWPLACE OF NATIONS':

By ADRIA SCHWARTZ
Pink and purple balloons bearing the phrase "World's Fair"
seen floating over the Diag this afternoon herald the opening of the
Michigan Union's "Showplace of Nations" to be held today and
tomorrow in the Michigan Union.
The World's Fair offers a unique experience to students of this
University in providing them with the, opportunity of viewing the
foreign cultures represented here," Susan Webb, '65, chairman of the
Michigan Union International Affairs Committee said yesterday.
It is co-sponsored by the International Affairs Committee of
the Union, the International Students Association and the nationality
clubs at the University.
8000 Visitors Expected
Travel posters lining the Union walls, and colorfully dressed
guides representing the 1800 international students at the Univer-
sity will welcome the expected 8,000 visitors to the Fair.
Inside the "Showplace of Nations" will be 18 booths representing
a span of nations from Latvia and the Ukraine to Indonesia and
the African Continent.
The booths, manned by students from the various nations, will
feature cultural displays. There will be Turkish and African refresh-

In May of 1963 a Union-League
study committee, chaired by Asso-

consolidation of the two institu-
tions into a University Center.
The report suggested that the
consolidation be accomplished by
forming a single governing board
and creating a co-educational stu-
dent activities organization re-
sponsible to that board.
The Regents rejected the report
since it would place students in
positions of managerial and fi-
