Professors Discuss Romney 's A bilities, Pro


In suptort of Governor-elect George Romney, Prof. James K.
Pollock of the political science department told a radio audience
Saturday that Romney's leadership abilities give him an "infinitely
better" chance of success in working with the Legislature.
Three of Pollock's colleagues in the political science depart-
ment are more wary of Romney's chances.
Profs. Joseph Kallenbach, Samuel Eldersveld and John P.
White agree that fiscal reform is the most vital issue facing the
new governor, that the income tax remains the only real solution
to the problem and the one to which Romney has more or less
committed himself, and that this battle should prove the effec-
tiveness of the new governor over his Legislature.

willing to accept the consequences of reducing expenditures" and
thereby the level of services which continue to expand.
That reform must involve an income tax. "I can't see how any
fundamental re-approach to taxation in the state can be made
that doesn't involve the income tax," Kallenbach said. "And that
issue is poison."
Romney's "fresh approach" will give him an advantage in leg-
islative management, Pollock said. He thought this was illustrated
in the recent constitutional convention where "on his own initia-
tive" Romney "had the ability to pull people of diverse opinions
together to work on a common program.
Due Credit
"I want to give Romney due credit as a leader," he said.
Kallenbach felt that Romney would come across "considerable
difficulty" in getting the Legislature to accept his program if it
involves adoption of the personal income tax. He referred to the
great opposition that greeted Gov. John B. Swainson's veto of the
Bowman bill last session, an action which in effect extended the
Detroit income tax to non-residents of the city.

This played a large part in Swainson's defeat. Kallenbach
said that while the metropolitan Detroit vote remained about the
same, the tally in the outlying communities dropped considerably.
He referred also to "the fact that Clarence Reid who is especially
opposed to the state income tax made the strongest race" among
fellow Republicans for the administrative board.
Eldersveld also pointed out the returns gave "no overwhelm-
ing party victory" to the Republicans. State conservatives might be
expecting Romney to go slowly in fiscal reform if there had not
already been an understanding on that. Romney "did not commit
himself specifically on anything," he said. "He seemed to talk
favorably about an income tax, but seemed to avoid it in the cam-
White called the prospects for the income tax better in that
the coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats just missed
setting up an income tax last session and that some of the "most
conservative senators" are now gone.
The Legislature was beginning to realize "there is no other
viable solution. The problem is coming to a head," he said.

The result of the battle would be "either Romney will put
through a tax revision program including an income tax and make
himself extremely unpopular throughout the state or he will fail
in efforts to achieve reform of the tax structure which will be
equally fatal to maintaining his reputation as a great leader,"
Kallenbach said.
'Key Dilemma'
This "key dilemma" of Romney's, to fulfill the expectation
that he will improve the state economic condition, is important
"particularly if he has presidential aspirations, which I think he
has," Eldersveld said. He will have to build an image to the nation
of a governor that acts and acts firmly, who is with his party and
controls his party. He will have to do it early in the term.
Eldersveld pointed to Gov. Nelson Rockefeller of New York
who put through taxes early and was able to cut them later.
"The Democratic administrative board will not be a serious
obstacle to Romney, who will have the Legislature on his side,"
Kallenbach said.

First Business
White said that the financial crisis was the "first order
business" and that both candidates saw reform in fiscal policy
the only -answer to an increasing deficit. "Neither party would1

Reach Agreements
On Cuban Ins pection
UNITED NATIONS MP)-United States aibassador Adlai E.
Stevenson said yesterday agreement had been reached on Red Cross
inspection of Cuban-bound Soviet ships.
He added there was some agreement also on "inspection of ships
coming out."
Stevenson made the comment after a late afternoon meeting
with acting Secretary-General U Thant to bring him up to date on the
progress of U.S.-Soviet negotiations on the Cuban crisis.
Earlier representatives of the international committee of the Red
Cross and the United Nations met separately with delegates from

Mrs. Roosevelt
Dies Following
Long Illness
NEW YORK (MP)-Mrs. Franklin
D. Roosevelt, 78, widow of the
32nd President of the United
States and in her own right one
of the world's outstanding women,
died last night.
Her heart apparently failed un-
der the burden of increasingly
grave illness.
Until she was hospitalized in
September, Mrs. Roosevelt main-
tained an amazing pace, shuttling
about the world on one errand
after another.
Although not overly robust in
appearance, she seemed to thrive
on her merry-go-round pattern.
On Sept. 26, Mrs. Roosevelt en-
teredCColumbia Presbyterian Med-
ical Center, seemingly for a rou-
tine checkup. Actually, she had
suffered a lung infection and ane-
mia. When her illness failed to
yield to hospital treatment, she
was discharged to her Manhattan
apartment on Oct. 18. There she
gradually faded until her death at
6:15 p.m. EST, last night.

ion and Cuba on the inspection
Inspect Departures
A source close to the negotia-
tions said Red Cross inspection of
ships leaving Cuba with dismantl-
ed Soviet offensive weapons was
also considered.
Prior to seeing Thant the U.S.;
delegate had said it was wrong to
say that consideration was given
to Red Cross inspection of out-
bound ships..
U.S. sources said they could not
elaborate. It appeared that the
U.S. had some plan for surveil-
lance over outbound shipping, but
was withholding details pending
further talks with the Russians.
Patience Under Control
In apparent reference to reports
the U.S.'is losing patience in the
negotiations with the Russians,
Stevenson also told reporters: "The
United States will take steps to
insure compliance with its agree-
ments with the Soviet Union."
In Moscow Soviet Premier Ni-
kita Khrushchev told newsmen at
a Kremlin reception 40 Soviet
rockets have been dismantled and1
are probably on their way to Rus-
sia. Washington dispatches said
the U.S. had some evidence that
a number of dismantled missiles
were loaded aboard ships and may
be moving out for home.
Could Check Claim
Inspection of outbound ships
would permit a check on Khrush-
chev's pledge to President John F.
Kennedy that missile bases would
be dismantled and the missiles re-
moved from Cuban soil.
There was no indication here
this would be sufficient to satisfy
the U.S., which is demanding on-
site inspection.
Meanwhile the White House last
night authorized U.S. reporters
to go to Guantanamo tomorrow to
cover developments in the Cuban
crisis on the spot.
Clearance of coverage on:i the
scene was granted after the gov-
ernment considered requests by,

Council also received a com-
plaint about its ex-officio struc-
ture from the executive board of
the Graduate Student Council,
present by SGC president Edwin
Sasaki said that GSC urges
the re-organization of SGC with-
out ex-officios in order to make
Council more democratic and rep-
(esentative. The GSC proposes
that until SGC is re-organized,
however, that graduate students
be represented through an ex-
officio capacity.
Sasaki charged that "although
00S recognizes that graduate
students have full right to run for
the elective seats, 'Graduate stu-
dents have been systematically
structured out of the seven ex-
officio positions."
Proportional Representation
The proposal for reorganiza-
tion of Council suggested that
each college elect to SGC a num-
ber of representatives in propor-
tion to that college's enrollment.
Michigan Union president, Rob-
ert Finke, '63, pointed out that
because of the heavy academic
load, graduate students do not run
for Council.
