Guido Forces Attack Capital,
President Proclaims Victory

ATO Chapter Fails at Congress;


Chi Situation Clarified

BUENOS AIRES (P) - Military
forces supporting President Jose
Maria Guido hit Buenos Aires with
lightning air and ground attacks
yesterday and wrested control of
the capital.
The president proclaimed a vic-
tory for forces that rebelled
against military control of the
His announcement came only
six hours after tanks routed anti-
Guido troops from the heart of
the city and air force jets bombed
others camped in a city park.
In Control
The announcement said troops
favoring a return to constitutional
government and early elections
were in control throughout the
nation. Tle president said mili-
tary operations had ended.
One of the leaders of the anti-
Guido forces was reported under
arrest. Gen. Bernardino Labayru,
army chief of staff, was being
held by grenadiers in Buenos Aires.
The other, Gen. Juan Carlos Lorio,
army commander-in-chief, was
reported to have fled.
Announcement Reads
Guido's terse announcement
"Military operations in the fed-

eral capital and greater Buenos
Aires as well as in the major part
of the nation have terminated. The
troops that dominate the situa-
tion obey the government and
have established necessary con-
tacts with security forces to
achieve maintenance of order.
"We ask and recommend (that
the public take) the greatest pru-
dence in an effort to avoid un-
fortunate incidents that might
provoke new and lamentable con-
sequences at a time when the mili-
tary situation has been overcome."
Tank Columns
During the day, tank columns
of pro-Guido army leader Gen.
Juan Carlos Ongania rumbled into
the city and struck at opposition
forces in Constitution Plaza.
Shortly afterward, jets bombed
most of the rebels into submission.
This left only a few holdouts in
another park and at the war sec-
retariat. They surrendered last
night, ending all opposition in the

On UAW Show

Republican gubernatorial candi-
date George Romney and United
Auto Workers' television commen-
tator Guy Nunn taped a half-hour
long television show in an ex-
change of angry charges.
The program, which will ap-
pear tonight, is regularly sponsor-
ed by the UAW. Romney asked to
appear after his Democratic op-
ponent Gov. John B. Swainson
spoke on the Sept. 16 show.
Romney, in answer to charges
made by his opponent, said that
Swainson, in the 1960 gubernator-
ial campaign had refused to ex-
plain what his tax program was
while Romney's Citizens for Mich-
igan had come out in favor of a

He declined to divulge the exact

Interfraternity Council Presi-
dent John Meyerholz, '63 BAd, a
member of Lambda Chi, said the
need for the clarification was
spurred by overall campus concern
about discriminatory clauses in
He hoped this action would dis-
pel allegations that Lambda Chi
possessed racial and religious re-
strictions in its ritual.
This, charge first became public
last December, when the Brown
University chapter reportedly ap-
plied for a waiver after consider-
able "pressures" by student organ-
izations there.i
Raps Sational
According to an article in the
Brown Daily Herald, the chapter
scored its national fraternity for
"the most blatant hypocrisy in
excluding from membership those
of non-Caucasian and Semitic
This report in turn led to spec-'
ulation here that the fraternity
would face possible punitive action
from Student Government Coun-
cil as it began to probe into viola-
tions of the anti-discrimination
Meyerholz, however, deplored
these "misconceptions." He said
that the Brown local, like the
University's chapter, had merely
asked its national for a clarifying
interpretation of some of Mne
wording in its membership selec-
tion provisions.
"They couldn't have asked for
a waiver; there is nothing for
them to get a waiver from," he
Meyerholz also noted that there

Still Looking
Although space for the center
has not definitely been selected,
Heyns indicated that it would
probably be housed in a building
formerly used by the Center for
Programmed Learning on Hill St.
The budget established for the
center and not yet released also
provides for some secretarial help
and funds for supplies and equip-
ment. In the beginning the profes-
sional staff is to consist of four to
five persons.
It is expected that the center,
whose aim is to provide maximum
assistance to the University facul-
ty in their task of providing effec-
tive instruction, will carry on re-
search and experimental work
supported by governmental and
foundation grants.
The 'new center is to have very
close connections with the Bureau
of Examinations and Evaluations
of the Institute for Human Ad-
justment, both of which will study
teaching and learning.
No specific functions have been
assigned to the center, as it is
felt that it will evolve into an in-
stitution with a broad and flexible
range of activities.

Racial segregation has ended at state-supported colleges and uni-

Efforts Fail
To Gain Votes
For Aid Bill
WASHINGTON (R)-Rep. Albert
H. Quie (R-Minn) said late Fri-
day efforts to gain support of
House Republicans for the federal
aid for colleges bill have failed.
But he said Sen. Wayne Morse
(D-Ore), chairman of the Senate-
House Conference Committee on
the bill, should call another ses-
sion so House Republicans could
try to save some of the bill.
In his view, Quie said, the col-
lege bill could not pass the House
with the student-aid provision in
it. But he_ said there might be a
chance to save the classroom con-
struction and aid to junior colleges
Than a Doornail
Senate sources in touch with the
situation said they believe the bill
is dead. The House Friday re-
jected 214-186 the conference re-
port on the measure.
Quie said efforts by Sen. Jacob
K. Javits (R-NY) to gain support
of Republican House members for
the measure had failed but said
Morse had a duty to call back the
conference for another try.
This same plea was made ear-
lier in the day in a letter to Morse
by GOP Representatives Quie, Car-
roll D. Kearns of Pennsylvania and
Charles E. Goodell of New York.

Rusk To Meet
With Gromyko
At Assembly
was a live issue yesterday as Sec-
retary of State Dean Rusk headed
for New York City to confer with
Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A.
Gromyko and others here for the
United Nations General Assembly.
But it was all words and no
action. The United States on the
one hand and Cuba and the So-
viet Union on the other exchanged
charges in the Assembly's general
debate. But none of them made
any move to get a special debate
such as would give the charges
more prominence.
An official source disclosed that
Cuban chief delegate Mario Gar-
cia-Inchaustegui had put himself
down to speak. Oct. 1.

Attempt at Revision;
See Progress Ahead
At its recent national congress,
the University chapter of Alpha
Tau Omega fraternity lost by the
4w'rest of margins an attempt to
elinnate all discriminatory claus-
es frd'n its national constitution.
Local eresident John McConnell,
'63E, noted last night that there
was pressure for change from
several groups at the congress.
"Different groups gave varying de-
grees of support to the fight for
removal; our delegation was one
of the three or four most active."
He named the University of
British Columbia, the University
of California at Berkeley, and
Middlebury College in Vermont as
ATO chapters with which he was
in constant cuntact
Chances Improve
McConnell, while disappointed
that the motions for change didn't
pass this tinie, is certain the
clauses will be gone within four
years. In fact, there is little doubt
in his mind that they will be voted
out at the next congress, to be
held in the fall of 1964.
"The national is very much
aware of the changing situation
More important, the rjouthern
chapters, which have beei mainly
responsible for keeping the clat ses
in, are beginning to uriderstand
that they must go. A breakdown
of last montn's votes shows sr
prising support from even deep
South ATO's."
McConnell's interest in eliminat-
ing the clauses does not stem from
a primary concern for bringing
ATO into compliance with Regents

On Cuba Issue
FLINT () - The sharpest ex-
changes yet in a series of face-
to-face appearances of candidate's
for Michigan's congressman-at-
large came Friday - both before
student audiences.
At Flint Junior College, Demo-
crat Neil Staebler attacked Repub-
lican Alvin Bentley's suggestion
that United States ships - as a
last resort - blockade Cuba to cut
off her supply of war goods.
Staebler called the idea "a fool-
hardy position on Cuba that would
amount to a declaration of war on
Russia. Invasion of Cuba is not
the answer," Staebler said. "Let's
not push the panic button."
Take Turns
Staebler had the last turn at
the rostrum in the session before

until later in the day to answer.

was the University of Arkansas at
Fayetteville. It removed racial re-

high school.
Texas, with its numerous col-
leges, leads the South in the num-
ber of Negroes attending desegre-

that state is estimated at more
than 1,000.
Kentucky, based on last year's
enrollment of 422, would be sec-

able for the current term.
Sharp Pattern
Louisiana - next-door neigh-
bor to Mississippi - reflects the
sharp pattern cut by state lines in
the deep South. There are more
than 300 Negroes attending for-
merly white Louisiana State Uni-
versity in New Orleans and Baton
In comparison, Virginia and
North Carolina combined have
little more than 100 Negroes in
desegregated schools. However, in
North Carolina both state uni-
versities have been integrated for
several years.
Only about 58 Negroes attend
desegregated state-supported aca-
demic institutions in Virginia.
This includes some night school,

Analysis of Local Bookstore Pri ces

In 1959, the Regents rejected a
student book store.
Explaining their denial of Stu-

quest for a discount book organ-
ization, the Regents reiterated a
long-standing policy:
".. That it is not and will not
be the policy of the Regents to en-

However, a survey of certain
texts (only new books) revealed:

crepancies in the prices charged
in local bookstores and the price
listed in the latest edition of

end of 1961), the standard trade.

2) There are instances where the
price of the same edition of the
same book varies from store to
store in Ann Arbor.
3) Wayne State University's
bookstore allows a saving of more

than 14 per cent over the cost of
the same books purchased at Ann
Arbor bookstores.
For example, a book by Prof.
Irving A. Copi of the philosophy
department, "Introduction to Log-
ic," used in several introductory
logic courses sells at the WSU
bookstore for $4.95. It lists in
"Books in Print" for $5.25. How-,

Another example is the edition

A section of books and supplies

versity revealed that at WSU the
student would pay $87.95 while
in Ann Arbor the same texts would
be priced at $99.85 plus four per

charged at WSU.
