Green Chosen House Speaker,
Sees 'Nothing But Optimism'

Special Tro The Daily
LANSING-The man who be-
came Speaker of the House last
night says that he has "detected
nothing but optimism" even among
the most conservative Republican
legislators towards the new regime
of Governor George Romney.
Representative Allison Green
(R-Kingston) was chosen, as ex-
pected, for the speakership by a
comparatively tame House GOP
caucus last night. Formal eleva-
tion to the post will come today
as the state Legislature opens its
1963 session.
Both Green and Representative
Robert Waldron (R-Grosse Pointe)
the new Republican floor leader
of the House, claimed that Rom-
ney backers, who controlled the
Senate GOP and the more con-

servative out-state elements pre-
dominant in the. House could co-
exist in a spirit of "open-minded-
ness and willingness to cooperate.
Will Work
"We won with him, we will work
with him," Waldron declared, and
Green predicted that if the Senate
sends over legislation of a "rea-
sonable" na'ture, "we will be able
to work something out."
The new speaker noted that the
caucus elections didn't have much
to do with individual philosophies,
as was the case when moderates
dislodged the old guard in the
Senate Republican caucus last
"The House leaders aren't real-
ly pro- or anti-Romney," Green
asserted. "We have only a two
vote margin, and there's no room
for family feuds." (There are fif-
ty-eight Republicans and fifty-two

Kaplan To Leave UCLA Post
To Teach Philosophy at 'U
Prof. Abraham Kaplan, chairman of the philosophy department
at University of California at Los Angeles, will resign from his post
there in June to teach in the University's philosophy department.
Prof. Kaplan was appointed professor of philosophy for the 1963-
64 academic year by The Regents at the November meeting. He was

a visiting professor at the Univer-
sity in 1951-52 and the second, se-
mester of 1954-55.
Explains Decision
According to the Daily Bruin,
student newspaper at UCLA, Doris
Drake, administrative assistant to
the philosophy department, ex-
plained that two factors influenced
Kaplan's decision.
"He just liked the setup at the
University," she said. "'Of course
there was a big increase in pay."
He " is currently on leave at
Wesleyan University in Middle-
ton, Conn., where hie is doing re-
search for the Center for Advanced
Appointed Chairman
Prof. Kaplan's resignation will
mark the end of a long career at
UCLA that began in 1947 when he
joined the philosophy department
as assistant professor. In 1952 he
was appointed chairman of the
A graduate of the College of St.
Thomas, St. Paul, Minn., he did
graduate work at the University of
Chicago and received his doctor-
ate from UCLA.
Prof. Kaplan has contributed
nunierous articles to philosophical
journals and written several books,
including "The New World of
Philosophy." The past president of
the American Philosophical Asso-
ciation, he is a recipient of Gug-
genheim and Rockefeller Fellow-
Acting Dean of the literary col-
lege Burton D. Thuma, comment-
ing on the appointment, said "Prof.
Kaplan is widely recognized as one
of the most brilliant and stimulat-
ing figures in American philosophy
But he is most noteworthy for
the way in which he combines
knowledge of the social sciences
which is both wide and deep with
a gift for penetrating philosophical

Not Opposed
Green said that he is not unal-
terably opposed to an income tax,
some form of which may pass the
Senate, "If it turns out to be the
only answer" to the state's fiscal
problems, "then I won't commit
myself for or against it right now.
House committee chairmen and
members will probably be named

elected assistant floor leader. Buth
replaces Rep. Carroll C. Newton
(R-Dalton), who lost out in a
close race with Waldron.
Defeats Hogan
Bassett defeated Representative
Henry Hogan (R-Birmingham)
but Speaker Pro-tem Green and
Buth were unopposed.
The caucus also decided to move
for a bi-partisan committee to in-
vestigate alleged infractions in the
fall campaign of Representative-
elect Leonard S. Walton (D-De-
Waldron will propose today that
Walton not be seated until such
an investigation d e t e r m i n e s
whether Walton deliberately mis-
represented himself as an incum-
bent. The House is empowered to
refuse to seat a representative in
special elections.
Green said that today's session
would probably be limited to for-
malities. Tomorrow Romney will
deliver the annual "State of the
State" address to a joint Senate-
House meeting.
SGC To Hear
Regents Motion
Student Government Council
will hear a motion tonight urging
student government to take a
more active part in the elections
of the Regents.
The resolution, proposed by
Daily Editor Michael Olinick,'63,
asks that SGC meet to "approve a
statement outlining what it feels
the major problems of the Uni-
versity are and what approach
to them the Regental candidates
should have." In addition, it urges
the council to take a stand on
what the qualifications for these
positions should be.
SGC will also hear a proposal
to disenfranchise ex-officio mem-
bers of that body. The motion
states that they are not directly
responsible to a student constitu-
ency. It also notes that as heads
of other campus organizations,
they do not have necessary time
to devote to the Council.
Four students were selected to
fill the vacancies on Joint Ju-
diciary Council. The appointments
will be reviewed by the Council
tonight. The following students
were appointed to full year terms:
Thomas Butterfield, '64, David
Fainberg, '64, Pnd John Markie-
wicz, '64. In addition, Patricia
Golden, '63, was appointed to a
half year term.

East Quadrangle Council unan-
imously endorsed a proposed
amendment to the Inter-Quad-
rangle Council constitution which
would open the position of presi-
dent of IQC to students of junior
The present IQC constitution
limits the presidency to seniors.
The amendment "is part of a move
to change the atmosphere of IQC
and make it active in campus life
and politics," Jeffrey Fortune,
'65E, president of Strauss. House,
There are three ways for the
amendment to be acted upon, For-
tune said. IQC may initiate it it-
self, 10 house councils may pass
the amendment and bring it be-
fore IQC through the initiatory
mechanism, or two-thirds of all
house councils may pass the
amendment, in which case it be-
comes effective without further
action by IQC.
Pass Amendment
This last method would require
that 16 of the 23 houses in East,
South and West Quadrangles pass
the same amendment.
Fortune indicated that there will
be an attempt to get the amend-
ment passed in 16 houses and cir-
cumvent direct IQC action. Strauss
House passed the motion last week,
but the East Quad Council en-
dorsement does not count towards
the needed house approval, he said.
The issue is not that a junior be
elected, but that the range of can-
didates be expanded, Fortune said.
No specific person is being consid-
ered at this time whose desired
candidacy prompted the amend-
ment, he stressed.
Broaden Base
The broadening of the base of
possible IQC officers will not only
increase the field of qualified can-
didates, but also involve the coun-
cil and. quad residents in discus-
sion and debate of issues on the
campus and help create an at-
mosphere of activity and concern.
"In the Past, IQC elections have
been a shoo-in," Fortune asserted,
"and we feel a need for more com-
petition to increase responsibility
and active interest among the offi-
cers of IQC."
Another proposed amendment to
the IQC constitution which would
set limits on the criteria to be
used in IQC endorsement of SGC
candidates was defeated recently
by West Quad Council.
The amendment would require
that all endorsements by IQC be
made on the basis of the candi-
dates' position on issues directly
related to quadrangle issues.


A survey conducted by .the
University's Survey Research
Center predicts a prosperous
economy for the next six
months, but sees a doubtful
future beyond that.
Professors George Katona and
Eva L. Mueller, both of the SRC
economic behavior program, di-
rected the nationwide cross-
section of 1,350 adults in No-
vember and December. The eco-
nomic behavior program is part
of the Institute for Social Re-
A report of the quarterly
study said that improved con-
sumer attitudes and strong de-
mands for automobiles result in
a good first half of this year,
but that a general tax reduc-
tion may be necessary to stim-
ulate the economy later in the
Automobile Sales
Prospects for automobiles and
home sales are better than they
were last year, the report said.
During the next few months,
automobile demands will con-
tinue to support the economy.
About one family in 10 intends
to buy a new car this year, and
a similar number hopes to pur-
chase used cars, according to
the report.
The survey found that three
major factors influence con-
sumers willingness to buy:

Cuban crisis. The researchers
feel that heightened interna-
tional tension tends to create
uneasiness during which con-
sumers are apt to postpone some
of their purchases.
Scrappage Rates
Automobile demand is shap-
ed by a rising baseline due to
increased scrappage rates, pop-
ulation and income; and to bus-
iness cycle fluctuations and
changes in attitudes towards
automobile purchases.
The report further says that
"attitudes towards automobiles'
improved greatly when the in-
troduction of the compact car
made for satisfaction with the
assortment of cars and destroy-
ed the notion that prices are
constantly rising." But the
1960-61 recession delayed the
advent of a prosperous year for
automobiles until the fall of
The report added, however,
that no important factor lead-
ing to the maintenance of last-
ing prosperity could be foreseen.
"In this respect," it said, "a
tax cut may be of great import-
ance as a psychological stimu-
lus on the consumer. There is
evidence, it noted, that a tax
cut for middle-income families
would spur sales of durable
goods, home and leisure time

IFC To Press for Hours Liberalization

Survey Sees Economy. Trend


The Inter-Fraternity Council
executive committee established
committees last night to press for
liberalization of women's guest
hours in fraternities and to con-
sider the possible granting of IFC
membership to Evans Scholars,
administrative vice-president
Frederick Rieker, '63, reported last
The IFC executive committee
discussed women's hours with
Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis. The vice-president
indicated that there is little pos-
sibility for changing them at this
time, Rieker said.

EEC Gains
"The progress which is beingl
made in the development of the
Common Market is amazing --
beyond the wild'st dreams of any
of the technicians working within
the structure of the community."
IThis was the comment made
yesterday by Prof. George Kish
of the geography department, who
has just recently returned from a
trip to the Common Market coun-
He described the entire concept
of ti1e European Economic Com-
munity as "the most exciting
thing which has happened in
Europe this century," but added
that the 'gradual manner in which
these changes are being presented
to the people" makes it easier for
the people to accept the change
in the face of Europe.
Commenting on the possibility
of Britain joining the Common
Market, Prof. Trish said that "it
is a highly complex situation and,
with the coming talks between
British and Common Market ne-
gotiators, it would be unwise to
make a comment at this time as
to the chances of Britain's join-
ing the Common Market."
Start Anew
He did say, however, that "un-
less a decision is reached very!
soon -before March or April of
this year - the negotiations would
probably bog down and have to
be started entirely anew in 1964."
This is because Britain is re-
quired to hold a national election
in 1964 and that unless the cur-
rent administration reached some'
sort of agreement before the cam-
paigns began there would be a
very "dim chance of the negotia-
tions succeeding in the future."
Prof. Kish pointed out thatt
there were three major "stumbling
blocks" td the success of these

To Provide
Coed Living
North Campus Area,
/ Slated for Housing
Of Foreign Students
The University has decided not
to build Bursley Hall, a proposed
coeducational residential dormi-
tory for North Campus, in favor
of offering students a wider
choice in housing than is now
In place of the quadrangle type
hall, the University is planning a
series of smaller buildings on
North Campus designed for up-
perclassmen, graduate students
and foreign students.
The new buildings will be de-
signed with considerable flexibil-
ity of occupancy in mind. Each
will be designed to house 500 men
and women. Broken down each
will have 100 single occupancy
rooms, 100 suites having a study
and a bedroom designed for two
occupants and 100 double rooms.
Bathing and toilet faciiltieg will
be located between the rooms,
Food Services
Food services will be provided in
a separate project close to the
buildings and will be .designed to
accommodate food needs of all
students on North Campus, Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis emphasized.
Common facilities for each
building will include a large main
lounge with semi- private areas, a
main office, an apartment for the
manager-director of the building
and laundry facilities. In addition,
there will be phone service in
every room.
Other specifications being ds-
cussed include terraces, short cor-
ridors, a small number of floors
per wing, prking /for at least 35
per cent of the students and air-
Shuttle Busses
Lewis predicted that the build-
ings would be ready for occupancy
by the fall of 1965. Shuttle busses
will continue to provide trans-
portation to North Campus. The
buildings will be located as ,near
to its center as possible.
The project will be self -liquidat-
ing with the downpaynient com-
ing from general housing funds.
So far no limit has been put on
the cost of the new units.
Lewis explained that Bursley
Hall would not be built because
undergraduate enrollment has not
grown very much over the past
four years and there is no need
for large type housing. He added
that plans for the hall had been
completed and if a need for such
housing arises the plans for it will
be pulled out and used.
The planned new units are an
outgrowth of a fairly new Univer-
sity policy which aims at offer-
ing students as wide a choice of
housing as possible.
The University is presently en-
gaged in the construction of the
Oxford Project and converting
South Quadrangle and Madn r
Markley into co-ed housing

Fraternities, Rieker said, may
not have women in its public
areas except for registered social
events after 6 p.m. while apart-
ments and quadrangles are al-
lowed to receive women until one
half hour before the dorm's close.
Special Committee
The special committee consists
of IFC President John Meyerholz,
'63, executive vice-president David
Croysdale, '63, and Chi Psi Pres-
ident William Birchfield, '63. To
assure continuity of the commit-
tee next year's IFC officers will
be added to the committee in late
He explained that current regu-
lations put fraternities at a dis-
advantage, especially with apart-
ment dwellers who may be visited
by women with few restrictions.
The committee will attempt to
present the fraternity viewpoint
to Lewis and to the 'University
community, Rieker noted.
The second committee will con-
sider on what basis the Evans
Scholars should be admitted to
the Inter-Fraternity Council.
Scholarship Caddies
The Scholars, a group of former
golf course caddies supported by
Western Golf Association scholar-
ships, are seeking full member-
ship. Rieker said the committee
will consider whether it should;
be a member, an associate mem-
ber or a full member.
He explained that since' the
Scholars live together on the basis+
of their stipends, a number of

membership selection rules would
have. to be waived if the group
joined IFC.
Rieker noted that Evan Scholars
have been recognized by the Wis-
consin and Illinois Inter-Frater-
nity councils.'
MSU Students
To Give Talk"
Benjamin Taylor and Ivanhoe
Donaldson, the two Michigan
State University students arrested
in Clarksdale, Miss., on charges of
unlawful possession of barbitur-
ates, will arrive in Ann Arbor to-
day and will speak at the Social
Action Center at 7:30 p.m.
The two were released from jail
Monday on $1,500 bond and are
awaiting trial. They have denied
all charges and plan legal action
against alleged abuse on the part
of Clarksdale police.
Taylor and Donaldson charged
at a press conference in Louisville,
Ky., after their release, that the
police had refused to give them
any food during the first 24 hours
of their arrest.
They further charged that the
supplies which they had brought
in for unemployed Negroes in the
Mississippi delta area were par-
tially confiscated and that much
of the clothing was saturated with
oil by the police.


Players To Present Six Characters'

The consensus favored a com-
plete merger of the two student
organizations. The organization
thus formed would be run by two
governing boards-a faculty, alum-
ni-controlled board to supervise
overall operation and a student-
controlled board to supervise or-
ganization activities.
