Pressures Faculty
Clai ms Staebler Funds Solicited
From College Staff by Regent
Rep. James F. Warner, (R-Ypsilanti) charged yesterday that
the Neil Staebler campaign committee, which he said is headed by
University Regent Eugene B. Power, is pressuring faculty and staff
members of the state's colleges and universities to contribute money
to Staebler's campaign.
Warner said that funds for Staebler were being solicited in a
manner designed to make faculty and staff members feel that they

Book Notes
Of Learning
Prof. Fritz Machlup of the
political economy department of
Princeton University reviewed his
most recent book, "The Production
and Distribution of Knowledge,"
in a lecture sponsored by the eco-
nomics society last night.
The book is to be released in
Prof. Machlup is interested in
how many people in this country
are employed for the production
and distribution of knowledge, he
explained. It is his first attempt
at statistical analysis.
Defines Knowledge
The word knowledge has two
major meanings: first that which
is known and second the state of
knowing. According to these defi-
nitions the creation of knowledge,
that which is known, also distri-
butes knowledge of a state of
In considering activities that
produce knowledge he did not con-
fine himself simply to intellectual
or practical knowledge. He in-
cluded forms of communication
such as television and magazines.
He considered in the statistical
analysis those activities produc-
ing knowledge which are paid for,
either by the receiver or someone
else. This would include a televi-
sion commercial paid for by the
Catagorizes Knowledge
He catagorized knowledge-pro-
ducing activity into education,
research and devolpment, com-
munication, informational ma-
chines, informational services, and
computed how much was spent on
each. He also computed the por-
tions spent by consumers, govern-
ment and business.
Under education he included all
religious activity, cost of church
buildings and activities such as
home education of children when
the latter is paid for indirectly be-
cause the other forgoes outside
income. He also included the in-
come students forgo while at-
tending school.
Notes Waste
There is a great deal of waste
in the present educational system
of 12 years for elementary and
secondary education. "The learn-
ing process can't be spread too
far," he said.
If the present 12 years were re-
duced to nine, the cost would be
less and the graduates better
trained, he added.
Under research and devolpment,
he rioted that the current theory
advocating more research will de-
feat itself if too many people are
taken out of education into busi-
aess. There will be no one left to
teach future researchers.
Night Shift
Members of Gomberg House,

either contribute of fear possible
reprisals in the forms of salary
cuts, lack of appointment to better
positions or promotion.
Displaying copies of two letters
sent to faculty and staff members
of state schools by the committee
to solicit funds, Warner said that
the committee also included mem-
bers of the boards of control of
six state universities and colleges.
Other Regents
On the letters were listed the
names of eight other members of
boards of control of state schools.
These were University Regents
William K. McInally, Allen R. Sor-
enson and Donald M. Thurber; Dr.
DeWitt T. Burton of the Wayne
State Board of Governors; War-
ren M. Huff of the Board of Trus-
tees of Michigan State Univer-
sity; James Copeland of the
Board of Control of Grand Valley
College and Homer Hilton Jr. of
the Board in Control of Michigan
Institute of Mining . and Tech-
Regent Power, calling t h e
charges "ridiculous," said that he
considered the charges as "a direct
attack on the members of the
finance committee who are serv-
ing because of their deep interest
in a candidate whose long record
is one of support for education in
Michigan and in the country."
Send Letters
He explained that 10,000 letters'
have been sent out to people
around the state in all walks of
life and that 20,000 more would
be mailed "in an attempt to raise
a broad-based support for Staeb-
ler's campaign."
He added that a definite at-
tempt is going on to solicit finan-
cial aid from University faculty
members, noting that "we feel
educators are sympathetic to
Warner did not reveal who had
received the original letters whose
copies he had but said that a
faculty member at Eastern Michi-
gan University at Ypsilanti had
first made their existence known
to him.
Demand Apology
One of the letters was signed
by Regent Power and the other
by James M. Davis, director of the
International Center.
Warner demanded that both
Regent Power and the committee
apologize to the faculty and staff
members of the state schools from
which they attempted to solicit.

Sues AMC
For Giving
A "substantial" stockholder of
the American Motors Corp. has
filed a suit in the United States
District Court of Detroit charging
the company's directors with mis-
management in allowing the firm
to help George Romney's cam-
paign for governor.
The suit calls for Romney's dis-
charge as AMC vice-chairman and
the cancelling of stock options
which he received when he re-
signed as president of the com-
pany. It charges further that the
directors violated their trust as
company officers by failing to
cancel the options.'
Attack Directors
Detroit attorneys have filed
the suit on behalf of Ruth Mintz
of New York City. They charged
that the directors allowed the
company "to assume and pay cer-
tain of Romney's expenses incur-
red in his current political cam-
Romney, named as one of' the
defendants in the suit, has refused
comment so far.
Richard E. Cross. chairman of
the board and another defendant,
has also refused comment until he
gets a chance to see the suit.
Company Policy-
He did say that Romney re-
ceives no salary while on his leave
of absence, and that the stock
options are merely a matter of
company policy.
"American Motors has made no
financial contribution to Romney
or toward the conduct of his cam-
paign or that of any other politi-
cal candidate or party," Cross
The suit claims that allowing
Romney to be connected with
AMC while he is engaged in a
"partisan, political campaign en-

On Campus
Says Few Students
Participate in Riots
"People are trying to return to
normal," in the aftermath of two
days of rioting, Sidna Brower,
editor of the Mississipian, the
University of Mississippi's student
newspaper, commented yesterday.
Miss Brower noted that many
students , stayed in their dorms
Monday as tear gas hung over the
campus. Some students, she added,
went home, but are expected to
return to Oxford this weekend.
Greeted with Jeers
Meanwhile, James H. Meredith,
the first Negro ever to be admitted
to the university, is attending
classes. His presence has been
greeted with some jeering, but
Meredith is well guarded by Fed-
eral marshals, she said.
The Mississipian was planning
a special edition on Meredith's
arrival, but Meredith arrived Sun-
day night before it was completed.
"The arrangement was for Mere-
dith to come on Monday," she de-
Miss Brower said that the rioting
started off campus and that the
mob invaded the campus. "When
things got rough Ole Miss students
went to their dorms. There were
few Ole Miss students involved.
Most were outsiders and students
from other campuses in Mississippi
and elsewhere," she declared.
Students Not Involved
"The situation was not in cur
hands," she added.
The Mississipian urged students
to remain calm and stay out of
the mob. Miss Brower noted that
the students were covered by the
Federal injunction ordering Mere-
dith's admission and could get in
Negro Girl
Seeks Entry
At Mississippi
JACKSON (OP)-Alfanette Bracy,
a 21-year-old Negro girl from Ray-
mond, Miss., has applied for ad-
mittance to the University of Mis-
sissippi, a source close to the state
college board advised last night.
The girl had been enrolled at
Jackson State College, and her
application was said to under
consideration by the board. It had
been on file since last summer.
It was not immediately made
clear if Miss Bracy was the girl
referred to in a National Associa-
tion for the Advancement of
Colored People announcement
made Monday that a Negro girl
would apply to the formerly all-
white university.
In the future, Miss Bracy said,
she believes white and Negro stu-
dents will get along well together
in Southern schools.

WASHINGTON {)-Rapid-fire House and Senate passage yester-
day sent President John F. Kennedy his tax bill, much revised from
what he asked but retaining his key request, an investment credit
designed to spur business to modernize its plants.
The bill is missing the second most important feature the Presi-
dent requested, a proposed tax withholding plan on dividends and
interest income. This had been counted on to make up the $1 billion

Asks Delay

See Postponement
As 'Willingness Test'
NEW ORLEANS R)--Mississippi
Gov. Ross Barnett yesterday won
a 10-day reprieve from federal
punishment for his vain opposition
to Negro James H. Meredith's en-
rollment at the University of Mis
sissippi. The Justice Department
suggested the delay.
Instead of sending Barnett to
prison or fining him on the spot,
a federal appeals court gave him
a form of probation until Oct. 12
---apparently a test of his willing-
ness to accept fully Meredith's in-
tegration into previously all-white
student ranks.
As the courtroom drama ended
without a showdown, Meredith
quietly completed a second day's
round of classes at the university
campus in northern Mississippi.
Blocked Admission
Twice last week, Barnett per-
sonally blocked Meredith's admis-
sion to the university. But in the
face of federal troop intervention,
the governor made no intrusion
Monday when Meredith finally
was registered. .
The governor's legal aides ar-
gued that this non-intervention at
the climax amounted to compli-
ance with the court's integration
order, that therefore Barnett had
purged himself of contempt and
any punishment attached to his
earlier defiance.
The Justice Department asked
the court to hold any punishment
in obeyance to allow Barnett more
time to show compliance with the
integration order.
Senate Plans
Meanwhile in Washington, the
Senate is making plans to investi-
gate the rioting which occurred at
the university. Chairman James 0.
Eastland (D-Miss) announced
yesterday he has invited Sen. John
Stennis (D-Miss) to take part in
the Senate Judiciary Committee
Stennis, who is not a member of
the committee, said he is "pleased
indeed to acce:pt."
Dirksen Surprised
Eastland's proposal that his Mis-
sissippi colleague "serve as a mem-
ber of the panel" making the in-
quiry brought an expression of
surprise from Senate Republican
leader Everett M. Dirksen of Illi-
Dirksen, who is a member of the
Judiciary Committee, told news-
men he thought it would require
committee action to bring any
non-member into the investigation.
Eastland announced Monday
night he was ordering an inves-
tigation by the committee into"all
events . . . since United States
marshals and army troops moved
Dirksen said he was withholding
a decision on Republican partici-
pation in the investigation. He said
he had been unable to discuss the
inquiry with Eastland because he
was informed the chairman was
suffering from influenza.
