AT MISSISSIPPI:
Stall IntegrationDecision

Kennedy

Takes Aassachusetts

JACKSON (P) - Political pres-
sure against desegregating the
University of Mississippi mounted
yesterday as the State College
Board delayed a decision on
hether to let Negro James Mere-
dith register under a federal court
order.
The Mississippi Legislature
adopted a resolution commending
Gov. Ross Barnett for his opposi-
tion to integrating the'university
and unsigned pamphlets were
dropped around university dormi-
tories.
Meredith, a 29-year-old Negro,
waited in Memphis while his
lawyers decided when he should
appear on the campus at Oxford,
50 miles southeast of Memphis.
Concerned'
Meredith saidhe normally would
register Thursday and told a news
conference he wanted to enroll be-
cause "I'm concerned with Negroes
getting a better education in Mis-
sissippi."
Barnett called last week for de-
fiance of any federal court school
desegregation order and called on
all officials unwilling to go to jail
if necessary to resign.
Dr. Verner Holmes of McComb,
vice president of the board, said
at McComb he "will not vote to
close the university. The injunc-
tion reads that if, the university
should be closed, other colleges
and universities could be closed
down also. (I will) go to jail if
l need be but provided that the uni-
versity's integrity is maintained
and that the university remains
open."
Other Institutions
Holmes warned if the 'iniversity
were closed, Meredith could go to
other institutions and create a
"basis for closing them down."
He also noted that it was mem-
bers of the state college hoard and
not Barnett who would be jailed
under any federal contempt of
court citations growing out of re-
fusal to admit Meredith.
The legislature, convening in a
special session to tackle legisla-
tive reapportionment, gave near
unanimous approval of a resolu-
tion commending Barnett for "his
fearless and courageous stand
against political aggression, abuse

Of U' Payload
By The Associated Press
WALLOPS ISLAND - An Ann
Arbor-built rocket payload was
scheduled for blast-off to some 1,-

disrupt and destroy Southern in-
stitutions, traditions and way of

Integration Stand
Barnett had no reference to the
university in his prepared address
to legislators opening the special
session, but when Lt. Gov. Paul
Johnson praised the desegregation
stand in his introduction, Barnett
responded:

"I'm going to stand steadfast all
the way down the line. I'm going
to keep the faith- in order that
we may perpetuate the great
Christian ideals and principles our
forefathers handed down."
Kennedy Conference
The governor disclosed to news-
men he had conferred with United
States Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy
by telephone about the desegrega-

FRATERNITY ADVISOR:
OSA Position Handed
To Past SGC Leader
By ANDREW ORLIN
Along with the new OSA administrative system, John Feldkamp,
'65L, has been appointed to the new position of Assistant to the
Director of Student Activities and Organizations.
Instead of this lengthy title, he prefers the more informal one
of "counselor to fraternities." Feldkamp, a past Student Government
Council president, sees his position as one of an advisor and in
no way one of a policeman. Disciplinary problems will be handled

Fraternities
Make Public
New Merger
By ELLEN SILVERMAN
Theta Xi and Kappa Sigma
Kappa fraternities merged into one
on August 20, the Theta Xi na-
tional recently announced.
The new fraternity will retain
the name of Theta Xi as well as
the badge and motto. It will oper-
ate under the constitution of The-
ta Xi also.
Although there is no Kappa Sig-
ma Kappa local on the University
campus, the regional Theta Xi or-
ganization will be increased by
membership of locals from Gen-
eral Motors Institute in Flint, the
University of Detroit, Ferris Insti-
tute in Big Rapids and Wayne
State University in Detroit, Paul
R. Sullivan, '63E, Theta Xi presi-
dent, said yesterday.
The new merger will increase
the size of the national and thus
there will be increased opportuni-
ties for expansion, Sullivan added.
Larger Representation
The Kappa Sigma Kappa chap-
ters will bring to Theta Xi a larg-
er representation throughout the
country, he commented. Many of
the Kappa Sigma Kappa chapters
are in the south.
The 21 Kappa Sigma Kappa lo-
cals will join with 47 Theta- XiI
locals. Sullivan noted, however,
that he could not estimate total
membership.
(Since Theta Xi has already
filed a statement with Student'
Government Council which was'
deemed adequate, there probably
will be no need for refiling of the
new fraternity's status.)
Regional Conference
Sullivan said that he would soon
go to Flint to initiate the new
fraternity there and that a re-
gional conference willbe held at
the University sometime in the
spring which will include all of
the new and old locals within the
area.
All of the Kappa Sigma Kappa
locals will be called Theta Xi and
assume their new status beginning
this semester.1

Oby the executive committee of the
Inter-Fraternity Council. He added
that if they failed, the matter
would be handed over to the Di-
rector of Student Activities and
Organizations, John Bingley or to
Vice-President for Student Affairs,
James Lewis.
Feldkamp views the role of the
fraternity as a "supplement to
the academic life." Historically,
the fraternities came into being
as a "smaller society inside the
larger university complex," he
added.
Today, they are multi-purpose
with a divided loyalty between the
University and their respective na-
tional organizations. A fraternity
is a student organization recogniz-
ed by SGC and could also be look-
ed upon as a housing group.
Fraternities also serve as an
extension of the ideals of the
national organizations, Feldkamp
said. In addition, there is a close
relationship between the frater-
nities and their alumni.
He added that it would be dif-
ficult to say which received first
loyalty although all fraternities
have to meet certain requirements
set by the University. "Often we
get help fron the nationals when
problems arise since one of their
main doctrines is loyalty of a
chapter to its respective institu-
tion," he added.

BOSTON ( P)-Edward M. (Ted)
Kennedy won by a landslide last
night the Democratic nomination
Ifor the Senate seat his oldest
brother, John F. Kennedy, gave up
to become President.
Making his first race for public
office, the 30-year-old Kennedy
engulfed Edward J. McCormack;
Jr., 39, nephew of House Speaker
John W. McCormack, in a vote
tide that rolled out of the Demo-
cratic stronghold of Boston and
swirled across the state.
The count from 1,071 of the
state's 1,988 precincts gave Ken-
nedy 277,103, McCormack 131,857.1
In a race that seemed likely to
go down to the final tabulations,
69-year-old Rep. Laurence Curtis
and George Cabot Lodge, 35, zig-
zagged in the lead for the GOP
nomination to battle Kennedy in
November for the two remaining
years of the President's term.
Other Contests
Returns from 1,016 precincts
gave Curtis 70,413, Lolgen81,169.
In another major contest, Endi-
cott (Chub) Peabody, a former
Harvard football star, led State
Auto Registrar Clement A. Riley
for the Democratic nomination for
governor. The count from 506 pre-
cincts was: Peabody 120,772, Riley
35,330.
The winner will oppose GOP
Gov. John A. Volpe, nominated
without opposition by Republicans
for a second two-year term.
'Unqualified'
McCormack, who had stung
Kennedy with charges that he was
running on his presidential broth-
er's name and was unqualified for
office, bowed out of the Demo-
cratic senatorial race, on the basis
of the early returns which showed
his opponent leading him almost
two-to-one.
Congratulating his successful
rival, McCormack called on all
those who had supported him to
work for Kennedy in the general
election. When some of his listen-
ers booed the Kennedy name, he
shushed them.

Speaker Ban
Major Issue
Before SGC
By EDWARD HERSTEIN
A motion urging that the Re-
gents revoke Bylaw 8.11, the Uni-
versity's speaker ban, will high-
light the first Student Government
Council meeting of the school year
tonight.
As proposed by SGC member
and Daily Editor Michael Olinick,
'63, the motion declares "the pres-
ent bylaw poses a very real threat
to academic freedom on the cam-
pus." The bylaw prohibits speeches
which "urge the destruction or
modification of our form of gov-
ernment by violence or other un-
lawful methods or which advocate
or justify conduct which violates
the fundamentals of our accepted
code of morals."
Also before SGC are two mo-
tions regarding the new Office of
Student Affairs Advisory Commit-
tee. The first recommends proce-
dures for filling the student posi-
tions on the committee, while the
second asks Vice-President for
Student Affairs, James A. Lewis,
to speak to the Council about the
role of the committee.
No action will be taken at this
meeting regarding the seven sor-.
orities that failed to submit state-
ments concerning membership se-
lection practices since SGC Presi-
dent Steven Stockmeyer, '63, is not
yet prepared to make recommen-
dations on procedure.
The Council also has on its
agenda a report from the Summer
Interim Committee, a commenda-
tion of appreciation to Mrs. Ruth
Callahan for work as OSA admin-
istrative assistant and a motion
on an SGC news letter.

alliance aimed at ,crushing Com-
munist Cuba-a Soviet satellite
one Senate leader branded -an
"ominous threat" to the entire
Western hemisphere."
Sen. George A. Smathers (D-
Fla) proposed the NATO-like or-
ganization plus recognition of a
Cuban government in exile in two
resolutions submitted for Senate

could "begin the job they (Cuban
refugees) wish to do, which Is to
free Cuba" from the dictatorship
of Fidel Castro.
Joined Debate
Sen. Everett M. Dirksen (R-Il).
the Republican leader, joined in
the running congressional debate
over Soviet military supplies flow-
ing into Cuba with a statement in
the Congressional Record. It said
in part:
"This is not only a threat to our
people in the United States of
America,. it is a violation of one
of our basic declarationsof*free-
dom, the Monroe Doctrine, since
.it poses a threat by a foreign na-,
ton to the whole Western hem-
isphere."
He said the danger, which he
Balled an ominous'threat, is now
on "the very doorstep of the Unit-
ed States."
The developments came against
this backdrop:
Announce Meeting
1) Announcement by State De-
partment Press Officer Lincoln
White that all Latin American for-
eign ministers or their representa-
tives, except Cuba's, are expected
to attend a meeting opening here
Oct. 2 on the Cuban situation.
New economic and travel restric-
tions to further quarantine Cba
may be considered.
2) Continued work by three con-
gressional committees to complete
by today a single declaration of
what Congress feels should be done
about the Cuban military coup.
3) A House speech prepared by
Rep. A. Paul Kitchin (D-NC)
claiming that a United States
blockade of Cuba would be respect-
ed by most Latin American, Far
Eastern and NATO countries.

Sallade Raises
'Slander' Issule
About Romney
A former Republican state rep-
resentative from Ann Arbor yes-
terday accused GOP gubernatorial
candidate George Romney of
"slanderand character assassina-
tion," following a Romney speech
Saturday endorsing Republican
congressman- at - large candidate
Alvin M. Bentley.
Romney's "slander" was directed
against Bentley's opponent, Demo-
crat Neil Staebler, according to
former legislator George Sallade.
Sallade quoted Romney as tell-
ing his Washtenaw County audi-
ence, "You have a man running
against (Bentley) who was a So-
cialist candidate for City Council
here. We need a congressman
whose Americanism can never be
questioned."
An aide said Romney did not
speak from a prepared text at the
rally. He said he did not recall
that Romney mentioned "the So-
cialism business."

"A wet sheet and a flowing sea and a wind that follows fast and
fills the white and rustling sail and bends the gallant mast."
Sailing is the joy of putting the elements and the boat into a uni-
son of speed. The comradeship is unmatchable, one sailor has said of
the sport.
Sailing Club open meeting will be held at 7:45 tonight in the
League Ballroom and prospective members will hear about the club,
meet members and see slides of past exploits.
Prospective members are welcome to sail at the club this weekend
to see the facilities and experience the joy of sailing.

The Sailing Club, with a fleet of nine Jet 14's and three iceboats,
has an aspect of the sport for everyone.

No experience is needed to begin sailing. Many inexperienced
members have become qualified skippers through the lesson programs
on Saturday morning.
