Of City Provision
IAttempt To Stop Street Brawls
Between High School, '' Students
Ann Arbor Police Chief Roland J. Gainsley reported yesterday
that he will ask the City Council to strengthen the city disorderly
conduct ordinance in order to stop street brawls between local high
school and University students.
"We have been disturbed about incidents between students who
are reported to be from the University," Vice-President for Student
yr.1..av .,.R. Jt4^":t.M;K~~i"{..-?:;ii;.vtii%:?i.?i+ Affairs James A. Lewis commented.

YD's Urge
The Young Democrats have
drawn up a policy statement urg-
ing all students to vote affirma-
tively on the Nov. 14 referendum
for maintaining the University's
membership in the United States
National Student Association.
The statement, drawn up at the
YD's executive board meeting last
Monday, "observed" the "vital role
played by USNSA in representing
the views of the national student
community to the public."
It added that the YD's "recog-
nize the vigorous efforts by
USNSA" on behalf of civil rights
and academic freedom, and point-
ed out that the organization has
been praised by President John F.
Kennedy, former President Dwight
D. Eisenhower, and many others.
The statement listed "the in-
valuable aids offered to Student
Government by USNSA," which
"have so consistently been by-
passed or ignored" by that body.
The YD's closed their statement
by "confirming ... USNSA as the
duly-constituted and effective rep-
resentative of the student com-
munity of the United States" and
urged strong support for USNSA,
both at the polls and elsewhere.

"We are willing to cooperate with
the police but it is my understand-
ing that some of the people in-
volved are not students, either
from high school or the Univer-
sity," Lewis added.
Gainsley, in a meeting with City
Administrator Guy C. Larcgm, said
that he will ask the City Council
to make it a misdemeanor "to at-
tempt to create a disturbance at
a public place, or to go there for
this purpose."
In the meantime, Gainsley has
ordered night patrol of the cam-
pus. He has given orders to police
to question all persons appearing
to congregate on campus "without
good reason."
"While we are willing to help
the police we will not give up what
we have in the way'of control on
campus," Lewis noted. "However,
such incidents must be stopped."
The actions came in the wake of
two clashes within the last month.
Both high school and University
students have been injured in con-
flicts of this sort.
Larcom asked that both high
school and University officials aid
in the police action. "We are ask-
ing them to help us prevent recur-
rences of this kind and to assist
in the quick apprehension of those
who violate the law," he said.
In one incident a group of 20
high school students went to the
Diag last Wednesday night "look-
ing for a fight," Gainsley said. He
reported that they were beaten up
by University students and the
high schoolers returned with "re-
One high school student was in-
jured when struck by a two-by-
four. Gainsley is now seeking war-
rants for the arrest of 12 students,
mostly high schoolers.

Castro Meets
With Soviet
Over Arms
HAVANA (AP)-Soviet First Dep-
uty Premier Anastas I. Mikoyan
flew to Havana yesterday to soothe
ruffled Prime Minister Fidel Cas-
tro amid the dismantling and
withdrawal of Soviet rockets from
Cuban soil.
Before leaving New York, Mikoy-
an, enroute from Moscow, endors-
ed Castro's demand that the
United States evacuate its Guan-
tanamo naval base in Cuba as
a condition for a Cuban settle-
ment. Havana radio broadcast
Mikoyan's New York statement.
However, it was believed Mikoy-
an would seek in Havana to per-
suade Castro to drop his opposi-
tion to international verification
of Soviet Premier Nikita S.
Khrushchev's promise to dismantle
Soviet missiles in Cuba and ship
them back to Russia.
Refused Inspection
Castro has refused to permit UN
inspection of the missile sites to
insure their prompt dismantle-
"These proposals of the revolu-
tionary government of Cuba, aim-
ed at insuring the security of
Cuba, are supported by the Soviet
Union, which considers them just."
However, nowhere in his brief
statement did Mikoyan indicate
that the Russians are not prepared
to go ahead with their pledge to
dismantle long range missile bases
in Cuba. Castro, himself, in a
speech Thursday night in Havana
claimed that "strategic arms"-
presumably the missiles-were be-
ing removed by the Russians from
Castro has been represented as
angry because he was ignored
when Khrushchev, in an exchange
of notes with Kennedy, agreed to
remove Soviet missile bases from
Cuba. The United States has in-
sisted that this pledge be backed
up by some form of on-site in-
spection to insure it is carried
out promptly.
In his speech last night, Castro
acknowledged that "we have some
motive for discontent" with the
Soviet Union.
Mikoyan's mission to Havana
was interpreted in most quarters
as a trouble-shooting trip to pla-
cate Castro and bring him into
line with the Soviet's announced
policy of quick dismantlement of
the missile sites.

Welch Attacks Press Smear'

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-The American Press
has smeared the John Birch So-
ciety by constantly and unfairly
calling it a secret society, the
group's founder, Robert Welch,
said yesterday.
Speaking before the Detroit
Press Club, Welch outlined the
programs and purposes of the
Birch Society and then fielded a
barrage of questions from the ap-
proximately 100 newsmen assem-
bled to hear him.
"We are not publicity seekers,"
Welch said.
Pats on the Back
When the Society was first
formed, it received several compli-
mentary notices in. the conserva-
tive press.
"But the left-wing and liberal
press was not paying any atten-
tion. Out of their own ignorance,
they yelled secrecy," Welch said.
"The activities of the society are
set down in the monthly bulletin
which, last winter, was sent to all
daily newspapers free. We dis-
continued because of the expense

The charges add up to approxi-
mately $1,150; the national aver-
age for universities is $924.
Among the 72 universities re-
porting non-resident fees, the Uni-
versity's average charge to its stu-
dents from out-of-state adds up
to the second-highest in the Unit-
ed States. The University's total
bill for an average out-of-state
student is about $1,780, compared
to a national public-university av-
erage of $1,250.
Ranks Third
Considering tuition alone, the
figures in the HEW report indi-
cate that the University's average
undergraduate tuition for resi-
dent students, is 18th-highest
among the public universities; for
out-of-state students the Uni-
versity's tuition ranks third in
the nation. In both cases the Uni-
versity's charges are well above
the public-university average.
In the case of residence halls,
the University's charges are also
near the top. In Ann Arbor, the
average (two-man) men's resi-
dence hall room, plus board,,costs
approximately $856, putting the
University second only to the State
University of Iowa, which charges
$880 a year. The national public-
university room-and-board tab
averages $656.
Similar figures a p p1y for
women's dormitories.
Private University
The HEW report also included
statistics for private institutions.
To attend a private university,
they indicate, an average under-
graduate pays an average of
$1,824 a year. Thus, an average in-
state student here at the Uni-
versity pays about $675 less than
this figure; the average out-of-
state student pays about $50 less.

all these figures. several possible

Sees Threat
By Racism
"Racism is one of the major
problems in the United States,"
John L. Griffin said yesterday in
his lecture "Southern Sectional-
ism," sponsored by the history de-
Griffin, author of "Black Like
Me," demonstrated his points from
his own experiences while living
in the South disguised as a Negro.
Working for the underground
in France during the Second World
War, he observed that, in Europe
as well as in the Deep South,
people were afraid to be associated
with the minority race.
Blinded during the war, Griffin
returned to Mansfield, Texas,
where he wrote books. He was lat-
er asked by the government to do
a study on race crisis patterns.
From this study, he concluded
that it is a "relatively small group
of extremely hardened racists
banding together who move into
a community and cause the crisis."
In an opinion report that Grif-
fin was asked to write on the rea-
sons behind a rise in the suicidal
tendencies of the Negro, he dis-
covered that "We live together,
but we know nothing about one
another. There is no true com-
munication between these two
groups of citizens."
Darkened Skin
Griffin decided to become a
Negro himself. With massive dos-
ages of an internal medicine, he
was able to darken the color of
his skin.
Beginngin New Orleans, he
found that he knew nothing of

"While the quarantine remains
in effect, we are hopeful that ade-
quate procedures can be developed
for international inspection of
Cuba-bound cargoes. The Interna-
tional Committee of the Red Cross,
in our view, would be an appro-
priate agent in this matter.
"The continuation of these
measures in air and sea, until the
threat to peace posed by these of-
fensive weapons is gone, is in
keeping with our pledge to secure
their withdrawal or elimination
from this hemisphere. It is in
keeping with the resolution of the
Organization of American States,
and it is in keeping with the ex-
change of letters with Chairman
Nikita S. Khrushchev of Oct. 27th
and 28th.
Calm Caribbean
"Progress is now being made to-
wards the restoration of peace in
the Caribbean, and it is our firm
hope and purpose that this prog-
ress shall go forward. We will con-
tinue to keep the American people
informed on this vital matter."
The proposal that the Interna-
tional Red Cross be asked to play
a role in verifying removal of.
the missile bases was advanced by
the Soviet Union.
