Faculty Committee's Resolution
Considers 'True Nature' of Ruling
The Senate Advisory Committee yesterday passed a resolution
giving faculty support for the proposed Regents bylaw on University
speaker policy, and urged that the University make every effort
to insure that "leaders of the local, state, and national community"
understand the full implications of the new ruling.
The resolution will be sent to University President Harlan
Hatcher, and to the Regents before they hold their October meeting,

WASHINGTON (R)-President
ohn F. Kennedy was given a new
ocial target yesterday: help for
.4 million mentally retarded
mericans-three out of every 100
persons in the United States.
The President's panel on mental
etardation said some 126,000
children born eachyear are des-
tined to become mentally retarded
during their lifetimes. The panel1
1) Set up a domestic "Peace
Corps" to spur voluntary services
to the retarded, especially in "de-
prived and distressed areas."
2) Found a national research
institute of learning to investigate
basic learning processes.
3) Spend $30 million to provide
comprehensive health services for
pregnant women and their off-
spring in low-income groups where1
there is a higher risk of mental1
4) Establish 10 new researchE
centers to probe biological, behav-
ioral, social and other pertinent
and basic scientific areas.
The panel, in a 281-page report,
made more than 100 recommenda-
tions, explaining that the causes
of mental retardation are com-
plex and varied, and a "board
spectrum" attack is necessary to
prevent and treat them.
The panel pointed out that of
the 5.4 million Americans who are
to some extent retarted, 400,000
are so retarded that they must
have constant care and supervi-
sion. While the rest are only mildly'
retarded, these frequently are the'

and accepted.
The resolution asks for a clarifi-
cation of the bylaw because "there
has been a lot of misunderstanding
since all the facts have not been
available-in fact, this was the
first time the SAC heard the com-
plete story behind the bylaw,"
Prof. Merwin Waterman of the
business school, and secretary to
the SAC, said yesterday.
Communication Needed
Prof. Wilbert McKeachie of the
psychology department, chairman
of the SAC, said it would be
necessary to communicate to leg-
islators and others interested in
speaker policy at the University
the 'true nature of the proposed
bylaw: it is naturally important
to communicate such information
to them before any possible crisis
might occur, either about the pol-
icy or with regard to a particular
Prof. Waterman said such policy
clarification "might begin by
pointing out that the committee
formed under the proposed bylaw
(the Public Discussion Committe)
and the regulations itself are quite
"Their proximity in the Regents
bylaws have given forth the mis-
taken impression that the com-
mittee has a direct-tie-in with im-
plementing and upholding the rule,
and this is not the case," Prof.
Waterman said.
Estep Speaks
The SAC members gained a more
complete understanding of the
functions of the PDC and the
bylaw through a general discus-
sion of the proposed legislation by
Prof. Samuel Estep of the Law
School, Executive Vice-President
Marvin L. Diehius, and Vice-
President for Academic Affairs
Roger W. Heyns yesterday.
Prof. Estep last year chaired a
group of faculty members and stu-
dents who were given the task
of inspecting the current speaker
policy (Regents bylaw 8:11) and
submitting suggestd modification
in the policy.
"It is clear that if implemented,
there will be no pre-censorship of
off-campus lecturer's addresses,"
Prof. McKeachie said.

SRC Notes
AMA Study
Representatives from the Survey
Research Center indicated "strong
disapproval" last night of the
American Medical Association's
interpretation of data gathered by
the center concerning the finan-
cial status of persons more than
65 years old.
Prof. James S. Morgan of the
SRC said the center had not seen
a copy of the AMA's report, and
that it was strictly the associa-
tion's interpretation of the infor-
mation. "We are withholding
comment until we are shown a
copy of the report from the AMA."
Charles A. Lininger, a study
director,ssaid the SRC hadssup-
plied only raw data to the AMA,
and that absolutely no conclusions
were drawn by the center.
Aged 'Better Off'
The controversial AMA inter-
pretation said that analysis of the
survey findings "once again dem-
onstrates that the aged as a group
are substantially better off on
the average than younger Ameri-
Using the data to support the
AMA's battle against a national-
ized health care program, presi-
dent George M. Fister said it
"would be an intolerably unfair
burden on wage earners" to force
them to pay health-care bills for
the aged, since "the vast major-
ity" of them are "well able to take
care of themselves."
AMA Findings
"Among the 65-and-over fami-
lies, 52 per cent own total assets
of $5,000 or more, 26 per cent
$10,000 or more and seven per cent
$25,000 or more," the AMA said.
"In contrast, 23 per cent of
the under-65 families own total
assets of $5,000 or more, 13 per
cent $10,000 or more and three per
cent $25,000 or more."

University President Harlan
Hatcher will leave Ann Arbor late
tomorrow night to embark on a
one and one-half month official
visit to Toyko and Asia.
The Far Eastern voyage will
send President and Mrs. Hatcher
on a tour of inspection of Uni-
versity projects inpAsia and will
enable them to visit those areas
currently being considered for
future University projects.
"The University is involved in
projects in Kanpur, India, and
Bangkok, site of the extensive
English Language Institute," Pres-
ident Hatcher related. "Because we
had not made a tour of inspection
since 1956, we thought that we
ought not to delay longer with
plans for this journey."
To Meet Alumni
The trip, beginning in Japan
with an' address at Waseda Uni-
versity and then proceeding to
Hong. Kong, the Philippines, For-
mosa, Thailand and India, will
enable President Hatcher to meet
with University alumni clubs in
Hong Kong, Manila, Taiwan, and

ceremonies and will receive an
honorary degree on Oct. 20.
Recognize Cooperation
This special recognition will be
given in appreciation of coopera-
tion between the University and
Waseda University in recent years.
From 1956 to 1961, the engineering
college gave technical assistance to
Waseda under an International
Cooperation Administration con-
During.that time, University in-
dustrial engineers went to Toyko
as resident consultants in the es-
tablishment of an institute for re-
search and industrial engineering.
In exchange, faculty and students
from Waseda came to Ann Arbor
for study.

Philippines in 1952 set up a train-
ing program for local officials.
