Kennedy Fears
Major Violence'
NAACP To Halt Negro's Entrance;
Awaits Action Against 'Insurrection'
BULLETIN
WASHINGTON ()-A 110-man Army engineers' unit is head-
ed for Memphis, Tenn., to provide support for United States mar-
shals involved in the government's efforts to enroll a Negro in the
University of Mississippi, the Defense Department said early
today.
A Defense Department spokesman said the Army engineers
will provide logistics and administrative support for the marshals,
but will not themselves intervene in Mississippi.
OXFORD (A) - James H. Meredith -- headed for his fourth
attempt to enroll as a Negro at all-white University of Mississippi -
backed off at the last minuteyesterday under direct order of the Unit-
ed States Attorney General.
The order came dramatically in mid-flight from Atty. Gen. Robert
Kennedy, who saw "major violence and 'bloodshed for the citizens of
Mississippi" if the 29-year-old Negro went through with his trip.
Waiting grimly on the ground in this North Mississippi college
town were a helmeted and club-carrying army of Mississippi peace

'DPisapproval'
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON-An effort de-
veloped yesterday to express Sen-
ate disapproval of Mississippi's
defiance of a federal court order
to admit a Negro to its university
-but it's unlikely to come to a
vote.
Former President Dwight D.
Eisenhower last night branded as
"absolutely unconscionable and
indefensible" the defiance of fed-
eral court orders requiring the
admittance of a Negro to the
University of Mississippi.
Edwin A. Walker said he was
on the wrong side in leading
troops to enforce integration at
Little Rock, Ark., and appealed
for civilians to. oppose any sold-
iers sent to Mississippi.
Gov. John Patterson of Alabama
asked President John F. ]Kennedy
..yesterady, "If troops are sent into
Mississippi, I ask if you are pre-
pared to invade Alabama as well?"
Richard M. Nixon said he will
support the President in the Uni-
versity of Mississippi controversy
"in whatever action he deems
necessary-even to calling troops "

" officers - showing not the slight-
est evidence of backing down, force
or not.
Adamant Stand
Once again the adamant stand
of Mississippi against integration
put off the final showdown of
strength between state and fed-
eral governments - and perhaps
brought nearer the use of federal
troops.
In Washington, Kennedy con-
ferred with a key Army general.
Informed sources said the conver-
sation - held after the call-back
for Meredith - revolved around
arrangements for the use of
troops, if that became necessary.
The Attorney General said: "Mr.
Meredith will be registered."
Orders Marshals
Apparently still not at the
trpop-using stage, Atty. Gen. Ken-
nedy ordered several hundred ad-
ditional federal marshals to Mem-
phis, Tenn., about 50 miles north-
west of Oxford.
In New Orleans, an official of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
said:
"We will advise him to make no
further efforts to enter the cam-
pus until after the insurrection
there has been put down by the
executive branch of the govern-
ment.
Guard Gates
At the time Meredith was turn-
ing back in late afternoon, a small
army of 500 peace officers - high-
way patrolmen, sheriffs and city
police-grimly guarded the five
gates to the Ole Miss campus.
They blocked four of the gates
with parked cars, figuring to force
Meredith and the marshals to
make their try at the main gate-
if they showed up at all.
And at the main gate, between
two brick pillars on either side of
the road, they set up their line.
Highway patrolmen wore steel
helmets and carried riot sticks.
Gov. Ross Barnett, on the cam-
pus all day and apparently ready
to step in personally to block
Meredith again if the opportunity
presented itself, spent about 20
minutes at the gate.
He drew loud cheers from the
crowd. Some of the people held
up two fingers in the "V" sign
for victory.
When he returned to the cam-
pus, part of the crowd followed.

WSU Plans'
Communist
Speaker Ban
Facilities Denied
Regardless of Topic
By MICHAEL OLINICK 3
Editor
and
RONALD WILTON
Special To The Daily
DETROIT - Wayne State Uni-
versity will bar all Communist
speakers - regardless of the pro-
posed speech topic - from using
campus facilities as a matter of
'interim action,' WSU President
Clarence B. Hilberry explained
yesterday.
The ban, which applies only to
open meetings of student organi-
zations, will be in effect until the
Michigan Co-Ordinating Council
f o r Public Higher Education
reaches a decision on a unified
speakers policy.
Hilberry earlier this week wrote
to the state Legislature that stu-
dent organizations would have to
submit information on proposed
speakers that "their study of his
background and experience pro-
vides no proof that his appear-
ance would be in conflict with tie
concurrent resolution" of the Leg-
islature.
Search for Truth
The resolution sets forth the
representatives'and senators feel-
ing that appearances of Commun-
ist speakers at state tax-supported
colleges and universities "does not
advance the search for truth and
is contrary to the public policy
of the state of Michigan."
The 'interim action' modifies
WSU's previous policy 'n outside
speakers which set "academic
competence to discuss the subject
matter" as the basic criterion for
judging guest lecturers.
"This does not mean, and has
not meant, t that the university
will allow speakers who use the
platform for purely selfish reasons
or for rank propograndizing," Hil-
berry said.
Hilberry explained that the
speaker ban went beyond poli-
tical lectures and covered all aca-
demic areas.
In an interview after the WSU
Board of Governors' meeting, Hil-
berry stressed the desirability of
framing a uniform policy on out-
side speakers, if all the state sup-
ported universities and their gov-
erning boards agreed to it.
"Any decision by the coordinat-
ing council has no legal weight on
the individual schools, of course;
it would be up to the boards to
accept or reject the suggested
policy."
If t h e coordinting council
chooses not to work for a uni-
fied policy, Hilberry said that
WSU will re-examine its policy as
soon as that decision is made.
Sees Progress
Donald Lobsinger, who was a
leader in a petition campaign
against WSU's earlier policy two
years ago, viewed the interim
policy as evidence that "real pro-
gress is being made at Wayne"
but said he was disturbed that
Communists would be allowed to
address closed meetings.
Lobsinger had not yet seen the
University's new policy, but ne
forecast citizen opposition if a
student organization invited a
Communist to speak in Ann Arbor.
At their meeting the Governors
approved a $27.1 million budget
for 1963-64. Of this, $22.5 million
will have to be appropriated by the
state Legislature with the rest ex-
pected from student fees and other
revenues.
The extra funds are needed to

add necessary personnel to the
staff as well as for buyig new
equipment. Provisions are also in-
cluded for wage and salary in-
creases and maintenance.

BI-PARTISAN:
Repeal N

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - In a surprise
move, the Senate voted yesterday
to repeal the Communist disclaim-
er affidavit required under the
government's college student loan
program.
The repealer, handled on the
floor by Sen. "Wayne Morse, (D-
Ore.), chairman of the Senate
Education Subcommittee, was
adopted without explanation or
debate as an amendment to a
House bill.
"The universities have been urg-
ing that this affidavit be repealed
for some time as it is unneces-
sary and is a double disclaimer,"
University President HarlanI
Hatcher commented.
"We are all glad that this was
abolished because we have been
working for this."
House concurrence will be nec-
essary if the repeal is to become
effective. The Senate was rushing
through a series of minor }bills at
the time.
Morse said the matter had been

pus speakers yesterday, and set up a new student-faculty
committee to enforce it.

MSU =President John A. Hannah, in a memorandum to
his faculty, said that outside speakers appearing on the
school's campus "must not advocate or urge actions which
are prohibited or illegal under University, State or Federal
regulations."
He added that such speakers must be sponsored by a
recognized MSU organization, and the sponsoring group must
submit written forms concern-
ing the subject to be discussed
by the speaker.
The new committee will receive
applications from groups wishing
to schedule speakers and will grant
or refuse permission according to
these criteria. It will be composed
of five faculty members, appoint-
ed by Hannah; and five students,
the presidents of representative
campus groups.

Dual Levels
By JEAN TENANDER
Albert Camus' novel, The Plague,
has both metaphysical and social
implications, according to Prof.
James Gindin, of the English de-
partment.
Discussing the work last night
at an informal seminar, Ginden
said that he saw no contradiction
between the social and metaphysi-
cal interpretations which may he
drawn. "The feeling that th. :sieta-
physical must be emphasized over
the social is to set the metaphysi-
cal on a scale which Camus would
definitely deny," he said.
The rejection of a possible read-
ing of nazism into the novel on
the basis that the identification is
not carried on throughout the
story is invalid, Prof. Gindin said.
