U.S. Plan Gives Methods To Reduce
Accidental, Surprise Attack Threat
GENEVA (P)-The United States yesterday proposed a sweeping
program designed to prevent surprise attack and war by accident.
The Soviet Union was urged to give it careful consideration.
United States Ambassador Arthur 'H. Dean outlined a program to
the 17-nation Disarmament Conference which included, among other
ideas, a direct telephone line connecting President John F. Kennedy
and Premier Nikita S. Khrushchev. Dean urged the delegates to con-

Picks Three
As Advisors
To Romney
By The Associated Press
LANSING - Gov.-Elect George
Romney yesterday picked the first
members of his "cabinet-type" ex-
ecutive office.
Two of the three appointed by
Romney were losers in last fall's
election. They are L. William Seid-
man, unsuccessful candidate for
auditor general, and Glenn S. Al-
len Jr., defeated candidate for
state treasurer.
The third appointee was Walter
De Vries of Grand Rapids who
will serve as executive assistant to
the governor for program develop-
ment and agency liaison.
Team on Problems
Romney said that the three ap-
pointees will work together as a
team on problems of fiscal man-
agement, program development
and administration.
Seidman was named as special
counsel to Romney for financial
affairs. He will be an unpaid as-
sistant, but will devote nearly full-
ftime to state affairs, Romney
He is a certified public account-
ant and a partner in the Grand
Rapids firm of Seidman and Seid-
man, one of the nation's largest
accounting firms.
Take Office

zoo, will take office with Romney
on Jan. 1. He will succeed Ira
Polley in the position of state
Allen, a lawyer, served 16 years
on the Kalamazoo City Commis-
sion and 13 years on the county
board of supervisors between 1941
and 1961.
"Glenn is perhaps best known
for his municipal accomplish-
ments," said Romney.
"These years of service have pro-
vided him not only a meaningful
grasp of over-all governmental
problems, but also intimate knowl-
edge and experience in govern-
mental financing methods and
problems," continued the gover-

Both Allen and De Vries served
with Romney as delegates to the
recent Constitutional Convention.
Work Together
Romney said the three men will
work together as a team on prob-
lems of fiscal management, pro-
gram development and adminis-
Romney also announced that he
intends to name four other execu-
tive assistants in what he calls a
"cabinet-type" organization of
the governor's office.
The other assistants will be for
legal affairs, public information,
legislative program and appoint-
ments, and office management.
De Vries will fill one of the
executive office staff positions
which Romney has asked the Civil
Service Commission to approve
for a salary range of $14,156 to
$17,539. His exact starting pay
will be set later.

Working Paper
His 15-page document was in-
troduced as a working paper and
contains these concepts:
1) Governments should give ad-
vance notification of major mili-
tary movements to allay suspicion
of aggressive aims.
2) Permanent observation posts
should be installed at key traffic
points to offer another safeguard
against illegal mobilization. The
posts would be supplemented by
observation by aircraft, mobile
ground teams or overlapping ra-
dar systems.
3) The major powers should ex-
change military missions as a con-
fidence building measure
4) Communications links be-
tween major capitals should be
installed to prevent war by mis-
calculation. The "hot" telephone
would be one of these.
5) Studies should be undertaken
on the possibility of modern weap-
ons themselves touching off a war.
6) Experts should investigate
related areas. These include a
study of modern weapons technol-
ogy and the possible development
of future super weapons on the
basis of present knowledge, and
the publication by countries of all
steps they had taken individually
to prevent war by accident.

LONDON (MP)-The British gov-

failed to reach agreement with
the United States on the Skybolt
Tentative United States plans
to scrap it have put the British-
American alliance to one of its
heaviest strains.
A statement issued by the min-
istry of Defense said, however,

Defense Talks
The announcement dealt with
the talks in London Tuesday be-
tween Defense Secretary Robert
S. McNamara and British Defense
Minister Peter Thorneycroft.
The two officials discussed at
length the prospects of develop-
ing the airborne strategic missile
on which Britain has been count-
ing for maintaining its nuclear
deterrent. Indications that Sky-
bolt may be scrapped have roused
alarm in Britain.
The ministry statement said
that McNamara and Thorney-
croft had "full and frank talks."
It added that "No decision was
taken on the future of Skybolt, on
which discussions will continue."
First Official Disclosure
This was the first official dis-
closure that the talks had broken
up without agreement, though re-
ports leaking out told of a tough
bargaining session between the
two ministers.
Britain has made plain that
junking of the projected missile
could lead to a reappraisal of
British defense commitments, in-
cluding the use of Holy Loch in
Scotland for a United States Po-
laris submarine base, British in-
formants said.
Reports from the McNamara-
Thorneycroft talks Tuesday said a
tough, blunt argument took place.

its first African government.
Kenneth Kaunda, leader of the
United National Independence

"an African government in North-

Kaunda conferred earlier with
the leader of UNIP's coalition
partner, Harry Nkumbula of the
African National Congress (ANC),
and Northern Rhodesia's Gover-

needs, said last night that he ex-
pects his committee to recom-
mend the following plan:
1) A new state-supported de-
gree-granting college, tentatively
named Saginaw Valley State Col-
lege (SVSC), would be set up un-
der an autonomous board of trus-
tees appointed by the Governor.
Serve Students
2) SVSC would serve students in
their junior and seniors years only.
Its students would mainly be those
who had completed their fresh-
man-sophomore work at Delta
College, a tri-county junior college
and presently the only higher ed-
ucation institution in the thumb
3) Delta would continue to oper-
ate as a locally-controlled com-
munity college.
'Committee Sentiment'
Begick feels that the "senti-
ment of the committee' favors this
plan, which was proposed by As-
sistant Dean John X. Jamrich of
Michigan State University's edu-
cation school. He cited the "flex-
ibility" of the plan as a major
point in its favor. .
However, Delta officials are not
entirely happy with the plan.
Chairman Oscar M. Anderson of
the Delta Board of Trustees said
that several objections to the Jam-
rich plan were raised at Tuesday's
Separate Boards
The basic dispute seems to be
over who shall control SVSC if it
is created. The Jamrich plan pro-
vides separate boards of trustees
for Delta and SVSC, with the add-
ed requirement that three people
be members of both boards.
The Delta Trustees, on the oth-
er hand, want an "integrated"
board governing both colleges, with
its membership divided evenly be-
tween locally-electedsand Gover-
nor-appointed trustees.
He said that his board still is
considering "very seriously" an al-
ternative to the Jamrich plan:
the expansion of Delta to a four-
year degree-granting college, and
its incorporation as a branch of
one of the state's larger universi-
University officials are moving
cautiously on this plan.
Refund Date
All undergraduate students,
including graduating seniors,
planning to leave the Univer-
sity at the end of this semester
must apply by written form for
the refund of the $50 enrollment
deposit before Jan. 1, Merlin
W. Miller, associate director of
the Office of Registration and
Records, said.
Refund request forms are
available in the Office of Reg-
istration and Records.
Refunds will be made by
check within 30 days after the
end of the semester. Failure to
apply by the January deadline
or voluntary failure to enroll for
the succeeding semester can re-
sult in forfeiture of the deposit.
In case of forfeiture, the stu-
dent may appeal to the Enroll-
ment Deposit Committee.

New Party

After a long period of inactivity,
campus socialists are planning to
At a meeting Tuesday night the
old Democratic-Socialist club re-
formed, dropping the word Demo-
cratic from its title.
This move is significant because
it opens the membership to so-
cialist factions on campus which
have shied away from previous
affiliation with the club.
Radical Action
These factions are opposed to
"Norman Thomas type" socialism
and have felt that the party fol-
lowed too closely Thomas' Social
Democrats. They are stronger pro-
ponents of radical action, and in-
formed sources frankly admit that
the new Socialist party will turn
even more to the left.
'Definite Gap'
Newly-elected president Michael
Brown, '63, claims that "there is
a definite gap on this campus for
radical thought and action. In the
past our problem has been a lack,
of resources, but now we have
enough people to carry out an
active program." The club has ap-

such a place for the purposes of
provoking a fight." The Code con-
siders it illegal only to engage in
a disturbance.
This change would give the in-
dividual police officer the subjec-
tive power of deciding whether or
not to make an arrest.
SGC's resolution sympathized
with the Ann Arbor City Council
in attempting to prevent violence
in the area, and noted "with re-
gret" recent disturbances between
University students, and local high
school students.
However, SOC considersthat
the amendment threatens the
freedom of assembly, guaranteed
by the Constitution, and is an un-
just burden on police officers.
Copies of the motion, introduced
by Daily Editor Michael Olinick,
'63, will be sent to Mayor Cecil 0.
Creal, the ten members of City
Council, the citymclerk, and the
Ann Arbor Chapter of the Amer-
ican Civil LibertiesUnion.
SGC's motion states:
"Student Government Council
recognizes the necessity of disord-
erly conduct laws but believes the
present ordinance is adequate to
deal with situations endangering
the peace. The proposed statute
goes too far in the area of police
power and begins to infringe upon
freedom of assembly. Council fur-
ther believes that more positive
approaches to this problem area
All Council members present

In other action SGC endorsed
the idea of a domestic Peace Corps,

John F. Kennedy. It supports the
program, and will "cooperate how-
ever possible" in its establishment.

The motion notes that Prof.

and "if the basis for (it) is of an

Labor-Management Undergoin,

"There is an long-held American
notion of what labor-management<
relations are, but the facts under-
lying this notion are in a state of
change," Prof. John T. Dunlop of
Harvard University said last night.
Speaking on "Labor-Manage-
ment-Government Relations" to
the Michigan Economic Society
and the Economics Club, Prof.
Dunlop said that one part of the
notion says that the National
Labor Relations Board (NLRB)
registers the will of the workers
on their bargaining unit and that
they alone decide whether to be-
long to a union.
"The labor movement has never
accepted without qualification the
idea that workers choose their
own representatives. Government
policy says that a union member
should be free to review his choice

tiate the terms are often a broader
group than the one originally spe-
cified by the original election dis-

There is also a folklore that the
result or negotiation is one fixed-
term agreement which is finally
settled upon, but in reality there
is a whole strata of separate agree-
ments, covering such things as
wages, pensions and seniority.
"It is like one party getting
married, and at regular intervals
they consider the possibility of di-
vorce. Along come the children in
such forms as pension agree-!
ments, and you get the notion
that the relationship must become
permanent," Prof. Dunlop said.

the bargaining table reach an

selves overlooks some of the most
