head of a Congo-bound United

a productive meeting yesterday
with United Nations Secretary-
General U Thant on supplying

Lt. Gen. Louis Truman announc-
ed he would meet here again today
with Robert K. A. Gardiner, who
is Thant's chief officer in the
Congo, and Ralph J. Bunche, UN
undersecretary who specializes in
Congo matters.
Asked about reports that the
Soviet Union was making a bid for
influence in the Congo, Truman

Favor Law
To- Stop Bias
The Life and Work Department
of the Ann Arbor-Washtenaw
Council of Churches recently rec-
ommended that City Council pass
a fair housing ordinance prohib-
iting ethnic discrimination in four
major areas:
1) All housing built or financed
with public assistance;
2) All other multiple housing
including both land and buildings,
except for a small multiple dwell-
ing in which the owner himself
3) All activities of those who
regularly engage in the buying,
selling or renting of property;
4) All advertising of housing.
The church council recognized
three major principles to be used
in adopting fair housing measures.
The first declares it unjust to
discriminate on the basis of race,
religion or national origin. The
second recognizes the right of the
individual to dispose of his prop-
erty as he wishes. The third is
that neighborhood ethnic balance
should be maintained.
Because there is a conflict be-i
tween the first two principles, the
church council seeks an anti-bias
housing ordinance which still
leaves the individual a reasonable
amount of control over his prop-

Lauds 'U' Projects in Asia

U. S., Britain See Progress

The University plays an in-
strumental role in the Agency
for International Development
because it is one of 10 or 15
schools with outstanding facul-
ty and.research facilities, Uni-
versity President Harlan
Hatcher reported yesterday.
President Hatcher delineated
the status of the many AID
projects contracted to the Uni-
versity which he visited during
his recent trip to the Far East.
The projects, intended to de-
velop more contact with for-
eign nations and students and
to further the Marshall Plan
concept of aid to underdevel-
oped countries, presently cen-
ter around five major areas.
'U' Projects
They are: 1) governmental
administration; 2) engineering
and technology; 3) nuclear en-
ergy research; 4) the study of
the English language, and 5)
agriculture development.
The University has been em-
ployed to carry out projects in
the first four areas.
Waseda Success
The Institute for Research ii
Productivity at Waseda Uni-
versity in Japan is a combined
industrial engineering and re-
search institute, which has been
working to relate business to
research, President Hatcher
After five years of work,
when the project ends next
year, Waseda will be able to
continue the institute as a part
of its own structure, he indi-
cated. The two University pro-
fessors assigned to Waseda will
return to Ann Arbor.
The public and business ad-
ministration center in Formosa
which has just completed its
first real year of operation is
very similar to the public ad-
ministration project which the
University successfully com-
pleted in the Philippines sev-

eral years ago, President Hatch-
er commented.
Political Problem
This institute, coordinated by
the political science department
and the Institute of Public Ad-
ministration, is designed to
help correct, the problem of
government programs bogging

"There is only one more year
under the present contract but
the Thai instructors believe
they cannot carry out the proj-
ect alone," President Hatcher
said. He emphasized the im-
portance of the project and the
need to extend the contract.
India Activity
Two University professors
are coordinating the building
of the Indian Institute of Tech-
nology at Kanpur. "It will be
a model university in sciences
-and engineering," he added.
Vice-President and director of
the Dearborn Center William E.
Stirton acted as head of the
project and was instrumental
in selecting the site for the in-
Although the specific Uni-
versity projects are progress-
ing successfully, P r e si d e t
Hatcher said that AID lacks
continuity. "The United States
has spread itself so thin, the
question arises on how much it
can do effectively." Project em-
phasis shifts from administra-
tion to administration, he
Also, he pointed to-the prob-
lem that the AID projects in
South America and the Alliance
for Progress "are not respond-
ing" as well as President John
F. Kennedy would have liked.
How Much?
There is also the question of
how many projects the Uni-
versity can handle. President
Hatcher said that AID often
contacts University depart-
ments to try to interest them
in projects.
If the department has the
interest and the personnel to
take charge of the project,
then the University tries to help
"in every way possible."
The decision to take on a
project is made by everyone
concerned with its implementa-
tion, he commented.

Legislative Group Ends Research Tour

With the Joint Legislative Com-
mittee on lconomic Growth hav-
ing completed its three-day tour

night reported that the gap be-
tween universities and industry
seems to have been closed some-
what-at least in attitude-as a
result of the meetings.

Stirton, Governor
Guar Frlens 1P
Although he counts Michigan's governor-elect as one of his
best friends, Vice-President and director of the Dearborr Center Wil-
liam E. Stirton promises not to "take advantage" of his close asso-
ciation with George Romney in "special pleading" for more money
for the University.
"This would certainly be inappropriate, and a violation of what
friendship means," Stirton related yesterday. Both men keep their
relationship on a personal, and
not professional level...........:<:,.:::::::::.:::.... ::

High School and Romney was working for the Automobile Manufac-

Both were active in various civic organizations which were striv-

Rep. Gilbert E. Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) noted that the Dearborn
Center and the Institute of Science
and Technology received much fa-
vorable attention from the legisla-
tors, who included most of the
high-ranking officials in the Sen-
ate and House.I
No recommendations came out
of the whirlwind tour. But Burs-
ley said the committee will meet
on Dec. 27 (when the Legislature
briefly re-convenes) to discuss

licize research in Michigan and
various tax incentives for and di-
versification of industry.
The committee went through
University facilities at Willow Run
and North Campus on Monday.
Visit WSU
Wayne State University was al-
so visited. Bursley noted that WSU
is working closely with the city of
Detroit in developing a "research
park" in conjunction with are re-
development. The committee plans
to tour Michigan State University's
plant sometime in the future.
Another beneficial aspect was
the amount of basic research being
conducted at large corporations in
Detroit, Bursley said, much of
which is done by men holding
doctoral degrees.
With proper support, a research
"corridor" could spring up between
Detroit and Ann Arbor, he said.
This has arisen in the much-pub-
licized research activities on the
East and West coasts.
Rep. Wilfred G. Bassett (R-
Jackson), one of the tour mem-
bers, declared that while emphasis

on physical and natural research
was certainly desirable, "sociologi-
cal and economic" studies should
also be instituted to help small
WSU President Clarence Hil-
berry declare it was the first time
that legislatois, industrialists and
academicians had sat down for a
cordial discussion of the topic.
"Our meeting points the way to-

Expect .Regents
To Pick Three
New Chairmen
The Regents are expected to
approve the appointments of three
new department chairmen at their
monthly meeting at 2 p.m. to-
morrow in the Regents Rm. of
he Administration Bldg.
Two depv:tment heads in the
engineering college and one in
the literary college willnretire next
year. They are Professors Russell
Dodge, chairman of the engineer-
ing mechanics department, Wyeth
Allen, chairman of the industrial
engineering department, and Ken-
neth Jones, chairman of the bot-
any department.
There is a possibility that the
Regents may give some additional
consideration to the outside speak-
er bylaw. The Board had postpon-
ed permanent consideration of the
policy until the January meeting,
after the Michigan Coordinating
Council for Public Higher Educa-
tion suggested a state-wide speak-
er policy.
However, Regent Donald M.
Thurber of Detroit said he would
not be surprised if the Regents
did discuss the speaker policy and
he wouldn't be surprised if they

... addresses committee
Urges Action
In Activities
"This committee has a golden
opportunity to set the framework
of student activities for the next
50 years," Vice-President for
Business and Finance Wilbur K.
Pierpont told the Union-League
Study Committee last night.
"The time has come to set a
curve for a whole new era of
student activities, and real prog-
ress can be made," he added.
Pierpont advised the committee,
which is currently considering the
question of a merger between the
Michigan Union and the Women's
League, to make a clear-cut analy-
sis of what students are and
should be involved with on cam-
pus, to define what kinds of ac-
tivities students want and to try
to establish an organization struc-
ture to accommodate these.
Academic Aim
"Students do not come to the
University to undertake the oper-
ation of a business enterprise," he
commented, "but rather come in
search of scholarship and student
activities in a broad sense.
"Somehow, on this campus, we
got off the track and student ac-
tivities became involved in hotel
management, labor relations and
financial management."
Pierpont urged the committee
to consider its immediate prob-
lem in terms of the "serious needs
of the University." He cited as
most pressing among these, the
need for an international student
center, a conference center, an en-
larged and improved faculty center
and more faculty offices.
Face Problem
"Above all, let's find out what
the student's main interest is. If
there is a desire to have co-edu-
cational activities, then let's face
up to it and get them. Then, in
that framework, you can carry on
all activities, expecting support
from the administration and get-
ting it.
"The students at the University
will get the finest support for the
things which will create in them

the International Arms Con-

Scientists Prepare
Moho Drilling Test
The National Academy of Sciences is now preparing for its
Mohole Project by drilling a test hole under the sea off Puerto Rico.
And it is most likely that the final big hole to the Moho-a
discontinuity 25,000 feet beneath the ocean floor-will also be
drilled near the island.
Prof. Richard Couch of the engineering college is a member
of the sub-committee that will recommend the platform design from
which the shaft will be sunk.
"Geologists say now that Puerto
Rico looks more favorable than
the other proposed site near
l Honolulu," he said after returning

most core or mantle of the earth.
