Activities
Merger
Hits Snag
By WILLIAM BENOIT
On the surface, everything is
now pleasantry and progress in
the plans for a Union - League
merger, but the heads or these
organizations cast a few verbal
brickbats at each other late last
night.
Sunday night, the student offi-
cers of both organizations met to
work out a compromise agreement
on exactly who would have control
over the merged student-activities
organization, to be known as the
University Activities Center.
Members of the Union Board of
Directors held that they should
have exclusive jurisdiction over the
Center, but the League Board of
Governors disrupted their plans
last Thursday by demanding that
authority be held jointly by the
Union and League Boards.

WASHINGTON (R')--Belgian
paratroopers, carried by United
States transport planes, moved
into rebel-held Stanleyville in
the Congo early this morning,
and the State Department said
that about three hours later
foreign hostages were pouring '
into the airport.
The dramatic rescue opera-
tion was announced by the
State Department shortly be-
fore 2 a.m.
The first paratroopers, drop-1
ped to clear the air field, met
slight resistance from the rebels
and suffered only minor casual-
ties, the department said.

addition to the General Library (left) will cost an estimated $3y2-4 million, part of which will be paid for by federal funds. A gift of $6 million by the Charles Stew-

The University chapter of the
American AssociationrofUniver-'
sity Professors has received no
formal reaction from the govern-
ment to its protest against the
loyalty affidavit of the Economic
Opportunity Act.
The chapter has, however, re-
ceived letters supporting its po-
sition from Senators Patrick Mc-
Namara (D-Mich) and Phillip
Hart (D-Mich) and from Con-
gressman-at-large Neil Staebler,
Prof. Arthur Carr of the English
department said yesterday. He is
the chapter president.
The local group voted at its
October meeting $o enter a formal
protest against the inclusion of
the disclaimer in what is termed
the anti-poverty bill.

and GERALD DRISCOLL

The disclaimer states that the
applicant "does not believe in and
is not a member of and does not
support any organization that be-
lieves in or teaches the overthrow
of the United States government
by any illegal or unconstitutional
methods."
It has been opposed by the ra-
tional office of the AAUP. The
local chapter's resolution against
the disclaimer was transmitted to
the executive and legislative
branches in Washington.
Over 150,000 Students
It could apply to the 150,000
students who would receive funds
under its $72.5 million work-study
program. It also appeared then
that it might apply to faculty
members involved in federal anti-
poverty projects and to volunteers
in VISTA, the domestic version of
the Peace Corps.
In the interview yesterday, Carr
said that he is sure further efforts
will be made to delete the dis-
claimer affidavit from the act. He
added that the AAUP will con-
tinue to press action, and that the
National Convention of the AAUP
will probably make a general mo-
tion when it meets in April.

mise, the Union agreed to a meet-
ing to settle the disagreement, and
apparently everyone was satisfied
with the accord reached Sunday
night.
The compromise was basically
that there would be a joint holding
of authority over the Center. But
the organizations' presidents dis-
agreed over whether authority will
be shared equally.
League President Nancy Freitag,
'65, said the officers agreed to
make theCenter responsible to
both boards equally - which is
essentially what the League Board
sought in its action Thursday.
Union President Kent Cart-
wright, '65, agreed that on paper
the boards would enjoy equal
authority, but said in fact the
Center would be closer to the1
Union Board. Although the Center
"must answer to both boards, it
will be more intimately associated
with the Union board.
"The League will eventually
have to realize that our plans for
the Center are not similar to
theirs. What we are proposing is
basically different from what they
are proposing," he said.
"Cartwright is in the minority
on these particular feelings," Miss
Freitag replied.
She said he was opposed to what
the rest of the Union-League offi-
cers wanted at the Sunday meet-
ing. "We reached a compromise
that he wasn't too happy about,
and he is negative about the whole
question," she declared.
The others involved in effecting
a merger do not feel there is a
basic difference in the Union and
League proposals, she said.
"Everyone else agreed actively
to the compromise, but Cartwright
agreed only passively," Miss Frei-
tag said.
Cartwright will chair the cru-
cial joint session of the Union and
League Boards. Miss Freitag pre-
dicted that if a united front is not
presented by the representatives
of the two organizations, chances
of a merger in 'the near future
could be killed.
Cartwright will remain silent at
the meeting, acting as a chairman
only-without participating in de-
bate, she said.

through a legal entity such as a

a local public agency would not
have to execute the affidavits, the
justice department said.
Eight Others
At least eight major higher
education organizations, including
the American Council on Educa-
tion, have indicated opposition to
the affidavit and said the? would
welcome decisions by the Office
of Economic Opportunity not to
apply it. .Qomplications could set
in, however, if such decisions are
forthcoming.
John Bell Williams (D-Miss),
the Congressman who sponsored
the amendment to the anti-
poverty bill which contains the
affidavit, could decide to protest
what seems to be a distortion of
his intent. The affidavit was in-
tended to apply to all programs
authorized by the act, according
to Williams.
"If money trickles down to stu-
dents," he said in a recent inter-
view, "then they, too, should have
to sign an affidavit."
Universities opposing the affi-
davits have charged that they
could lead to governmental inves-
tigations of private beliefs and
governmental interference in the
conduct of universities. They have
also objected to singling out stu-
dents for subjection to affidavit
requirements.
Proponents of affidavits argue,
along with Representative Wil-
liams, that "they are right and in
the interest of the country and our
national security."

The Board in Control of Intercollegiate Athletics and the Office
of Student Affairs announced ticket and transportation plans for
the Rose Bowl last night.
The Athletic Board developed a plan for distribution of tickets
starting next Monday, November 30, and lasting until Dec. 4. The
Office of Student Affairs is sponsoring airplane, train and bus
trips to and from Los Angeles.

The trips are planned by the
University and the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs in cooperation with
Student Government Council.
Package Deal
They are available only to stu-
dents, faculty and staff and their
spouses. The participants may
have a choice of using only the
transportation to and 'from Los
Angeles plus the game ticket, or
may purchase the tour package.
The package deal includes tickets
to the Rose Bowl parade and
game, five nights in a hotel, per-
sonal and baggage transfers in
Los Angeles, and a box lunch on
the day of the game.
Prices are expected to range
from about $100 for bus travel
and game ticket only, to $200 for
air travel and the complete tour
package. All the plans will in-
clude personal and baggage in-
surance, but do not include meals.
Students and staff who are tak-
ing the excursions are not per-
mitted to order any individual
tickets from the Athletic Depart-
ment, since a reduced price game
ticket is included in the cost ofs
the excursion.
Students and staff who are not
going by the excursion plan may
place ticket orders in person at
the Athletic Ticket Office begin-
ning next Monday between 8:30
a.m. and 4:30 p.m. A student is
permitted to order one ticket and
a member of the staff may order
two, at a price of $6.50 each. They
must present their ID card, fill
out an application and will be
given a claim check for a guaran-
teed seat in the Michigan section.

to Big Ten rules, for every ticket
buyer to come to exchange the

AHCReveals
Policy To Aid
Dorm Problem
A new women's dormitory policy
aimed at preventing the last-min-
ute conversion of rooms from
singles to doubles or doubles to
triples was announced yesterday
by Assembly House Council Presi-
dent Maxine Loomis, '65.
She said the administration has
accepted the plan which will en-
able every woman to know the
number of residents in her room
when she occupies it at the be-
ginning of the semester.
It is hoped the plan will take
effectsby the coming winter se-
mester. It will definitely be used
by next fall.
Under the new policy, quad di-
rectors and special investigators
are examining all rooms to deter-
mine their capacities. These will
not be surpassed although Miss
Loomis said that the investigators
are discovering many current
doubles could be triples.
The reappraisal of room capaci-
ties was prompted after over-
crowding this fall placed several
hundred women in converted
rooms with little notice, Miss
Loomis said.
A committee of presidents of
women's houses made a survey of
residents placed in converted
.rooms. The survey showed that
while s o m e dormitories had
smoothly integrated the extra
women into converted rooms,
other dorms were more dis-
organized.,
In some cases, it was shown that
women would return from classes
to find someone had just moved in.

MICHIGAN QUARTERLY REVIEW:
Revised Magazine Boasts Renowned Authors

The first issue of the revised Michigan Quarterly Review is off
the presses.
The University's newest magazine, expanded in both size and
scope, has replaced the Michigan Alumnus Quarterly Review with a
spate of authors ranging from Alfred Kazin through one Lyndon B.
Johnson. Other contributors include former University professor and
poet, X. J. Kennedy, state department aide Harlan Cleveland and
E. G. Burrows, manager of radio station WUOM.
Prof. Sheridan Baker of the English department, who assumed
editorship of the Review when the Alumni Association surrendered it,
expresses high hopes for the magazine. "This first issue could be
