Local Peace Unit
Denies Rumors
Squelches Reports of HUAC Query;
Says No Subpoenas Issued Here
The Ann Arbor Women Strike for Peace organization denied
rumors last night that its members have been called to testify from
the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
Mrs. John Sonquist, head of the local group, reported that "to
the best of my knowledge no one in the Ann Arbor, Detroit or Chicago
area has been contacted."
A group spokesman also revealed that the women are contem-
plating volunteering to testify but that no decision will be made until
later this morning. A meeting was

PARIS-The Gaullist majority
elected by the country last month
demonstrated its power in the
new National Assembly today
with the quick re-election of
Jacques Chaban-Delmas as Speak-
Mr. Chaban-Delmas, one of the
leaders of the Gaullist Union for

or left their ballots blank.
From all appearances the open-
ing. day of the second Assembly
of the Fifth Republic was the most
popular matinee in town. Long
lines formed outside the Assembly
gates for admission and the gal-
leries were packed an hour before
opening time at 8 p.m.
Presiding was the Assembly's
colorful dean in point of age,
Canon Felix Kir, Roman Catholic
ecclesiastic and Mayor of Dijon.
The vote for Mr. Chaban-Delmas
indicated a comfortable working
majority for the Government of
Premier Georges Pompidou that
was formed today.
As announced by President de
Gaulle this evening, the Govern-
ment is much the same as the
old one and thus emphasizes the
desire for continuity in policy that
the President believes the country
expressed in its voting.

Plan To Fight
Income Tax
Groups opposing city income
taxes on non-residents are pre-
paring' for another campaign to
get such levies banned in Mich-
The Vigilance Tax Committee,
led by Berkley mayor George
Kuhn, has been circulating in-
itiative petitions since Sept. 15 to
get an anti-nonresident-tax meas-
ure submitted to a statewide ref-
erendum. Kuhn said yesterday
that his committee now has
125,000 signatures, and expects to
have the requisite 225,000 by
Dec. 22.
An intensive signature campaign
this weekend will include street-
corner, shopping center and door-
to-door drives; and township halls
in Wayne, Oakland and Macomb
countries will hold "Boston Tea
Parties" Dec. 16 to collect signa-'
tures and protest "taxation with-
out representation," Kuhn added.
The initiative petitions seek a
law prohibiting 1) adoption of
local taxes without a supporting
vote of the city's are electorate,
and 2) any income tax on non-

Alleged Efforts
The hearings by the committee
are aimed at investigating alleged
efforts by the Communist party
to infiltrate non-Communist peace
organizations. The Women Strike

group slated for investigation.
Detroit members of the organi-

and several other unidentified Un-
iversity people, Mrs. Sonquist not-

Mrs. Boulding's telegram called
the hearing a "waste of public
time and money." She said that
the group believed that "we, as
women, can do something to keep

Rep. Francis E. Walter (D-Pa),
HUAC chairman, announced that
"it is with reluctance that the
committee deems it necessary to
conduct hearings.
"Unfortunately, the Communist
conspiracy, through treachery and
deceit has established a long rec-
ord of converting man's greatest
dream into tools for bringing
about man's most tragic losses of
dignity and freedom."
Original Rumors
The Washington New York of-
fices of Women Strike for Peace
indicated that the original rumors
of Ann Arbor subpeonias were re-
ported as true to organization
spokesmen who released state-
ments to newspapers. Later these
were proved false.
A national organization spokes-
man demonstrated disapproval of
the committee's call by issuing a
statement which said that "we
recognize this investigation as an
attempt to divert our -attention
from the most important issue
women have ever faced, the pres-
ervation of our families in a world
armed with nuclear bombs."
The group has no membership
lists as such and operates through
a mailing list of women who have
shown interest in it. "We decide
everything by group decision," and

ROCHESTER - Prof. Samuel
Shapiro has been fired by Mich-
igan State University-Oakland.
Prof. Shapiro "would have had
a better chance" of being retained
if he had written and said less
about Cuba and Latin-American
affairs, said Associate Dean George
Prof. Matthews further said that
the "principle factor" in Shapiro's
release was of an academic na-
ture. Matthews did not relate these
academic reasons because, "they
are internal considerations, which
are private."
Shapiro, head of MSU-O's his-
tory department since 1960 said
he was "very surprised" at being
turned down. His wife was re-
appointed as an assistant profes-
sor of English.
Latin America
Shapiro has written extensively
on Latin America for the last
three years. In January, 1961, he
visited Cuba with members of the
Fair Play for Cuba Committee.
A Lansing television commen-
tator concluded from this that
Shapiro "sees nothing wrong with
pro-Communist Cuba (and) ob-
viously believes Castro is right and
we are wrong."
"We do not think a State-
supported institution should be a
refuge for Communists or fellow-
travellers," the commentator said,
and suggested that Shapiro go
teach in Cuba.
Shapiro sued and damage ac-
tion against the TV station is
pending in Ingham County Circuit
Shapiro's writings have blamed
"inflexible" American policies for
turning Castro to Communism,
and it is his contention that
United States invasion, even by
250,000 fully equipped and trained
troops, would turn the island into
an inconclusive "Algeria."
Police State
He also has described Castro's
regime as a Communist dictator-
ship and a police state, and said,
in an Atlantic Monthly article,
that "there is no guarantee against
Castro's turning into a Caribbean
version of Hitler."
Matthews insisted that "our
judgment has nothing to do with
the nature of his writings. But he
was appointed as an American his-
torian, and we expect a certain
amount of scholarly work in his
field of specialization."
"His writing has been on the
level of journalism," Matthews
said, "and in a man seeking tenure
we look for scholarship."
Asked if he might be less likely
to approve tenure for a "con-
troversial" professor, Matthews
"That's not the way the aca-
demic mind works. It likes con-

A special House interim committee will meet Tuesday to consider

NSA Meets,
Shaul Absent
IOWA CITY - The Big Ten
Student Government Conference,
sponsored by the University of
Iowa Student Senate, got under
way last night even though United
States National Student Associa-
tion President Dennis Shaul was
absent, the Daily Iowan reported.
Shaul, who was expected to pre-
sent an evaluation of NSA, missed
plane connections in Chicago, and
will not attend the conference.
Membership in this organization
has been a subject of controversy
on most Big Ten campuses this
Steven Stockmeyer, Michigan's
delegate to the conference, de-
scribed the student government
setup in an address to the group.
He stated that a current project
is getting students on the faculty
policy-making committees. Stock-
meyer also told the group of a
small controversy over the author-
ity of student government in rela-
tion to student conduct. He pre-
dicted that authority will probably
be given over to the student gov-
ernment at Michigan. Stockmeyer
also pointed to the unclear lines
of authority in the judiciary.

college, which thus would become!
the first degree-granting institu-
tion in the Bay City-Saginaw-
Midland area, would mainly serve
students who had completed un-
der-classman work at Delta. How-
ever, it would also admit qualified
juniors from other schools.
Under this plan, offered by As-
sistant Dean John X. Jamrich of
Michigan State University's edu-
cation school, the new college
would be a state-supported insti-
tution, with its own board of trus-
tees appointed by the governor
with the advice and consent of the
Turning Point
The thumb area's problems, and
the way they are solved, "are not
an isolated question of higher ed-
ucation in Michigan,"dDean Jam-
rich said. "What we do here can
be a turning point" for other areas
with similar educational needs, he
Dean Jamrich emphasized that
his proposal is only one of several
alternatives available, and pointed
out that the main function of
Tuesday's meeting will be to find
out which plan Delta officials con-
sider the best solution.
Another possibility under con-
sideration would be the expansion
of Delta to a four year college,
and its incorporation as a branch]
of the University under Regental
No Decisions
University Executive Vice-presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said last
night that although this has been
discussed at length with Delta of-
ficials, no commitments or deci-
sions have yet been made.
Both Dean Jamrich and Rep.
Raymond Wurzel (R-Port Huron),
a member of the interim commit-
tee, voiced opposition to expansion
of Delta.
Dean Jamrich contended that
an autonomous college could main-
tain a "vitality" which even a suc-
cessful branch arrangement could
not achieve.
"The establishment of branches
can only further complicate the
administrative framework of our
universities, contribute to the dilu-
tion of their programs and detract
from their main emphases," he
Wurzel noted that a bill to make
Delta a four-year institution was
killed last year in the House edu-
cation committee.
Definite Need
"Community colleges serve a
definite need for students who
don't want any further schooling,"
he said. If Delta were permitted to
expand, most of the other junior
colleges in Michigan would de-
mand similar treatment, Wurzel
Dean Jamrich said that a spe-
cial study he made for the inter-
im committee indicated that "one
can definitely justify the need in
the Saginaw Bay area for a de-
gree-granting institution." Forty
per cent of the students included
in his survey planned to obtain a
college degree.
In his report, several other pos-
sible answers to the area's edu-
cational needs were noted:
Buy Delta
1) The state could buy Delta
College from the three counties
which now support it, and set it
up as a four-year college. If this
were done, the thumb-area com-
munities would be expected to set
up new junior colleges to replace
2) A new four-year college


Study Combined Degree
In LSA, Engineering
The literary college and the engineering college are working joint-
ly on a combined five year degree program for students who want de-
grees in both colleges.
"Ohio State University and Cornell make students attend college
for five years to get only an engineering degree," Prof. Richard
Schneidewind of the engineering school said yesterday. "Our pro-
gram would try to appeal to students by giving them two degrees
at the end of five years-one for 4 - ------_-

quirements and the other for the
engineering school requirements.
'Engineering students now take
about 60 hours in the literary col-
The remaining courses in the
engineering curriculum are in the
engineering science and profes-
sional subjects. "The engineering
science courses are really applied
sciences rather than technological
courses," he added.
"We hope that the literary col-
lege will find the engineering sci-
ence courses of such caliber as to
be considered fulfilling the con-
centration requirements."
If such a combined degree pro-
gram is found acceptable to both
colleges, a student could enter the
program in his sophomore year. At
that time he would be given a
counselor in each school, with a
transcript being sent to both, Prof.
Schneidewind explained.
Associate Dean James H. Rob-
ertson of the literary college said
that the two colleges need to work
out a joint supervisory board. Al-
so, the program must be discussed
with the faculty.
"It's a question of clarifying
the concentration options that a
student would have," he said.
"The program would offer an at-
tractive curriculum for students
who are mainly interested in the
engineering sciences but who still
want to get the full value of a lib-
eral arts education," Dean Rob-
ertson commented.
The literary college presently
has combined degree programs
with the civil and chemical engi-
neering departments. The pro-
grams require about 160 hours for
the chemical and about 170 hours
for the civil engineering degrees.
The proposed combined degree
programs would have students take
a total of about 155 hours.

Idle Worker

KALAMAZOO-The Survey Re-
search Center reported yesterday1
that 60 per cent of American
family heads who were out of workj
in the recession of 1960-61 were
also unemployed at some time dur-
ing the previous three years.
This "persistent" unemployment1
was found to be closely related toi
a number of socio-economic char-
acteristics, such as occupation and1
education, 'and particularly local'

The Center's findings appear
in the recently-published "Persis-
tent Unemployment 1957-61." The
study was sponsored by the W. E.
Upjohn Institute for Employment
Prof. Eva Mueller and Jay
Schmiedeskamp of SRC point out
that, "Brief spells of unemploy-
ment often do not cause a major'
disruption in the family's finan-
cial situation. By contrast, pro-'
longed or 'repetitive unemploy-
ment greatly reduces the ability'
of a family to make discretionary
purchases, even after the mainF
breadwinner returns to work."
While seven out of ten wage or
salary earning family heads re-
ported having escaped unemploy-
ment during the four years cov-
ered in the study, over half of the
remainder were out of work at
least once, and a substantial num-
ber more than once, Mueller and
Schmiedeskamp reported.
Over a fourth of family heads
unemployed in 1960-61 were out of
work more than half of that year,
they continued. At least 40 per
cent of this category "estimated
their financial loss at $2000 or

World Ferment
Describing the ferment in the
world, President Hatcher told how
upon reaching Toyko, he saw Jap-
anese magazines with much pic-
torial coverage of the racial prob-
lems at the University of Missis-
While there, he was notified of
the Cuban crisis and sensed a
feeling of Japanese accord with
the strong United States stand.
In Formosa the only criticism
brought to President Hatcher's at-
tention was that the people feared
that America would lose strong
Latin American backing by not
taking a strong enough stand on
At the out-break of the India-
China border disputes, President
Hatcher observed that surround-
ing nations were not disturbed
about the clashes, thinking they
were just another border skirmish.
However, in India, he said, that
"panic hit India with almost ex-
plosive force."
President Hatcher said that the
Indian minister of education was
reluctant to speak about educa-
tion because it was subordinate to
the problem of war.
There is a trend away from the
policy of non-alignment in India,
he commented.
Various Projects
One of the objectives of the
president's tour was to visit var-
ious University projects abroad.
In Toyko President Hatcher re-
ported that the joint University-
Waseda University engineering
school project is a "flourishing in-
stitution." He said that in the
five years since its establishment,
Japanese businesses and industry
have used the institute in a sim-
ilar fashion to the Institute of
Science and Technology.
In Formosa he visited theinsti-
tute for government developed by

Chinese university developed in
the last six years. He also toured

ments assisted by several Ameri-
can universities. President Hatcher
cited the desire for "sound and

Inspection of the Indian In-
stitute of Technology in Kanpur
which is being developed with
University aid was also on the
agenda. "It is a beautiful new
campus being built from the
ground up," he said.
Sense of Urgency
In Italy and Spain there is "not
the sense of urgency in educa-
tion," he commented. "The uni-
versities seem to be marking time."
President Hatcher predicted that
in another 25 years the under-
developed countries are "bound
to move into the forefront if they
are given a chance."
In the Philippines he noted the

Prof. Malm emphasized the mel-

Thecomplexity of Arabic mel-

the division of the octave into 17
