LANSING-Senator Elmer R.

head of the important Ap-
opriations Committee yesterday
an appointments battle that
ded with Republican moderates
ading 10 of the Senate's 21

Senate moderates formed a
alition with six Democratic sen-
,ors to place Senator Frank D.
adle (R-St. Clair) in Porter's
rmer post. Porter, who had
.aired the Committee for over

13 years, fought hard to keep his
post and clearly was upset at his,
defeat. The Blissfield Republican

An Institute for Arms Control and Peace Research has recently

and organizations concerned with research related to technical and
applied problems of arms control and disarmament.

Arms Control Journal
The Institute will publish a
Journal of Arms Control and a
newsletter of up-to-date activity
in arms control and disarmament.
The Institute will also give re-
search grants with money pro-
vided by industry, private founda-
tions and government. It will
sponsor an arms control sympo-
sium, discussions and membership
"The idea for the Institute was
originated by Daniel Jones of the
Bendix Corporation and is a good
example of industry and the Uni-
versity working jointly on an im-
portant project."
Initiated Symposium
The professional staff of the In-
stitute was responsible for initiat-
ing the International Arms Con-
trol Symposium in December,
sponsored by the University and
the Bendix Corporation. The first
issue of the Institute's Journal was
presented at the' Symposium.
Ann Arbor was selected as the
Institute's headquarters, because
it has long had more activity and
interest in disarmament and arms
control than other places in the
"Many people here are vitally
concerned with these issues, and
the Conflict Resolution Center has
helped to give the University a
national reputation in this area,"
Prof. McNeil explained.
May Form Policy
The Institute is not a policy-
forming or political group, and
members often don't share com-
mon views about how disarma-
ment and arms control problems
should be solved. Its work if ap-
proved by government, may even-
tually, however, develop into a
public policy, he added.
"This field is a moving area, and
industry is putting a great deal
of money for work in it. With this
enlightened self-interest in what
is a 'comparatively recent 'field,
many industries and research cen-
ters are bidding for contracts to
study the problem.

Committee were replaced by mod-
erates, making it a moderately
dominated body.
Beadle voted with Senate mod-
erates last year in their attempt
to pass an income tax, but aligned
himself with the conservatives in
their Dec. 27 fight to hold control
of the Senate.
The moderates returned con-
servative Senator Clyde H. Geer-
lings (R-Holland) to the chair-
manship of the important Com-
mittee on Taxation. However, the
other three Republicans serving on
the Committee are -all moderates.
Dismiss Conlin
In the House, Rep. Allison Green
(R-Kingston), newly elected
Speaker, summarily dismissd Rep.
Rollo G. Conlin (R-Tipton) from
his post as chairman of the Tax
Committee. Informed sources say
Conlin will be offered a seat on
the Ways and Means Committee.
"I was not invited to discuss it
with Green," Conlin said about
Green's action. "I cannot do any-
thing about the Tax Committee,
but I will resign from Ways and
Means the moment I am appoint-
Conlin, a staunch supporter of
tax revision, hinted that he would
continue to work in floor debate
for a state income tax if he were
to lose his position as head of the
Taxation Committee.
Look for Successor
Rep. James N. Folks (R-Horton)
mentioned as a possible successor
to Conlin, said he would probably
accept the chairmanship of the
Committee if named. Folks is an
apponent of the state income tax
Also in the House, Speaker
Green set a committee of five to
investigate charges of improper
election procedure against Leonard
S. Walton. Walton was refused his
seat by the House Wednesday in
the first session day. Rep. Henry
M. Hogan (R-Birmingham) will
head the investigating committee.
Romney Takes
Stand on New
Liquor Law
Gov. George Romney said yes-
terday he would not veto a pos-
sible amendment to state law to
permit liquor sales on Sunday, the
Detroit Free Press reported.
Addressing the Detroit Conven-
tion Bureau, Romney added that
he had "not gone into it far
enough to say categorically"
whether or not he favored such
an amendment.
Certain members of the Con-
vention Bureau have criticized the
restriction against Sunday liquor
sales on the grounds that it pre-
vents "a more gracious welcome"
to conventioneers. Romney said he
would do "all I can to support the
growth of Detroit as a convention
But he also said, "It's a state
legislative problem and that's
where it will stay." And opposition
by church and temperance groups,
and by Rep. Edward A. Borgman
(R-Grand Rapids) chairman of
the House Liquor Committee,
make the introduction of more
permissive legislation in this ses-
sion doubtful.
Bills presented last year before
the Legislature and the Constitu-
tional Convention to liberalize
Sunday sales were defeated. The
present law forbids the sale of
all bleverages containing more
than 16 per centnalgohol, both over
the bar and in package form, from
2 a.m. to midnight on.Sundays.
Romney himself neither drinks
nor smokes, due to religious con-
victions. In deference to his con-
victions, yesterday's Convention
Bureau's reception, at which liquor
is usually served, offered only
tomato and fruit juices.

Lewis Given
South Quad
Coed Study
The Inter-Quadrangle Council-
Assembly House Council commit-
tee on co-educational housing sub-
mitted its report on South Quad-
rangle facilities under considera-
tion for co-ed housing to Vice-
President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis yesterday, while
IQC is considering whether to dis-
band the group.
The report, expected to be re-
leased today after approval by
Lewis, has considered the possible
division of South Quad horizon-
tally or vertically into men's and
women's units.
It has also been concerned with
other physical facilities such as
Club 600, the ninth floor study
hall, the laundry rooms, pay tele-
phones and vending machines.
Await Details
No details of the report have
been revealed, pending their re-
lease by Lewis.
On Thursday night, IQC voted,
by voice vote, to tentatively dis-
band the committee after it has
reported on South Quad physical
facilities. However, West Quad-
rangle Council President Curtis
Huntington, '64, said he will move
to reconsider IQC's action at its
next meeting. He said he voted for
the motion without having com-
plete information and is now op-
posed to it.
IQC cannot dissolve the com-
mittee, however. Assistant to the
Director of Housing John Hale
explained the IQC-AHC commit-
tee is actually a committee of the
Residence Hall Board of Govern-
ors. IQC and AHC were just re-
quested to appoint the committee,
he said.
More Work
Committee member R o n a 1 d
Haskins, '65, president of West
Quad's Winchell House, declared
that the committee had many im-
portant things to do before dis-
It has to consider the student
government structure, relating the
house, quadrangle, dormitory and
interdorm and interquadrangle
units, he said.
Seeley, Bush. Thronson, and
Hunt Houses in Mary Markley
Hall will be given over to men's
units, Haskins said, and place-
ment for them must be arranged.
Priorities for women seeking to
live in South Quad must be
worked out.
The committee must also plan
for social activities, especially or-
ientation, in the co-ed units, he
added. Lastly, the role of the staff
must be studied.
Political Conflicts
Haskins and Huntington as-
cribed IQC's decisions to politics
and conflicts between the commit-
tee and ontside interests. They
denied that the committee had not
consulted the students affected,
citing two open hearings at Mark-
ley, one at Alice Lloyd Hall and
their close cooperation with the
South Quad house presidents and
the South Quad Quadrants.
They also asserted that the
committee was not falling apart,
as had been charged at the IQC
meeting. Two members had re-
signed, one due to academic pres-
sures, and have now been replaced,
they noted. They added that they
felt no one else on the committee
had abrogated responsibility.

Rushes College Budget Stud

Special To The Daily
LANSING-Officials in the
state controller's office are
working to complete processing
of budget requests for the Uni-
versity and other state-support-
ed agencies.
The office must give its rec-
ommendations concerning ap-
propriations to Gov. George
Romney late this month. Rom-
ney will make the final deci-
sions on the distribution of
funds, then submit his propos-3
ed budget to the state Legis-
One man in the budget divi-
sion of the office has to pore
over the reams of financial
figures which are sent by the
10 state-supported colleges to
justify their fiscal requests.
Directs Data
After analyzing the -data, he
transmits advice on selecting
the items that may have to be
cut upwards to the deputy
director, the director, the state
controller and finally the gov-
ernor. (The -controller is ap-
pointed by the governor; the
others have civil service tenure.)
This analysis is grounded in
a two-way communication-
the governor provides fairly in-
tensive policy guidance all
along, while the staff aides in
turn continually relay their
thoughts on which budgetary
aspects deserve priority.
Despite -the difficulties of a
transition year, Romney "has
worked very closely with us.
This will truly be Romney's
budget, not former Gov. John
B. Swainson's," Richard Beers,

college budgets
the deputy director, declared
this week.
Romney's Philosophy,
He sees the budget as "the
governor's social philosophy as
expressed in dollar terms."
Romney will make public some
of his views concerning higher
education in an address to the
Legislature sometime in the
near future.
Beers, '50, parried all ques-
tions concerning how his office
decides which budget items will
have to be cut, as did Weldon
Allen, who examines the Uni-
versity's request. "The criteria
we might develop is confidential
to the governor because it is
advice especially for him,"
Beers said.
However, the final request'
processed through the gover-

nor and eventually the Legis-
lature contains only a lump
sum, which the University is
then free to allocate as it de-
Sources of Influence
Beers emphasized that the
office's analysis is but one of
several sources of influence on
the governor's final decision.
Another is the annual budget
hearing with University offi-
cials, including President Har-
lan Hatcher, four vice-presi-
dents and representatives of
Romney. Held before Christ-
mas vacation, the meeting af-
forded the University an op-
portunity to explain and de-
fend items in its request. All
state agencies have a legal
right to be given such a hear-
One of the problems which
is often discussed at these ses-
'sions is the comparative late-
ness in submitting budget re-
quests. The University, like the
other state educational insti-
tutions, usually formulates its
request for the next year in
October, after enrollment is
Short Time
However, this gives Allen only
about two or three months to
sift through all the data, thus
necessitating overtime work
during the busy January weeks.
"The school year begins just
at the time the next budget,
should be completed," Beers
said. "We're sympathetic with
the problem, and we have to
live with it. University officials
don't like it, either."
Upcomning year-round opera-
tions, however, may soon al-
leviate this situation.

Rusk Sees Prompt
Peaceful Settlement
For Reunification
By The Associated Press
Moise Tshombe, has offered to
yield peacefully to the United Na-
tions if he is permitted to remain
as a provincial president in a
Unified Congo, Western diplomats
reported yesterday.
Diplomatic sources said Tshom-
be's offer included free entry for
the UN into his last stronghold,
at Kolwezi, and free UN movement
elsewhere in the province.
The informants said Tshombe
wants the United Nations to put
the proposal to the Central Con-
golese government, which would
have to agree to such an arrange-
No Word
Officials at UN headquarters in
New York said late last night they
had no word of Tshombe's re-
ported offer, but recalled that
Secretary-General U Thant stress-
ed Dec. 31 that the UN "has no
designs on Tshombe or ,his future
position or career in or out of
Katanga province."
There was no immediate reac-
tion from Premier Cyrille Adoula's
Central Government in Leopold-
Tshombe's reported offer came
as UN troops smoved slowly on
the road from Jadotville toward
Kolwezi, the, strategic hydroelec-
tric and mining center 150 miles
northwest of Elisabethville. Tshom-
be's mercenaries and Gendarmerie
there had threatened to destroy
vital mining and power installa-
tions if the UN tried to take the
town by force.
Tshombe's Whereabouts
UN officials reported they did
not know Tshombe's present
Tshombe would be beyond UN
control in either Kolwezi or the
Rhodesias, where he is reported to
be, and free to effect the scorched
earth policy he threatened to wage
against the UN military takeover
of Katanga.
Tshombe had been under com-
plete freedom of movement in
Elisabethville except for the night-
ly UN curfew applicable to all
Optimism Prevails
UN officials said they were still
optimistic about the over-all sit-
uation. A similar view was ex-
pressed by United States Secretary
of State Dean Rusk in Washing-
ton. He told reporters prospects
are better for a peaceful settle-
ment than they have been for
some time.
At UN headquarters, Secretary-
General U Thant conferred with
undersecretary Ralph J. Bunche,
who returned yesterday from an
on-the-scene inspection of the sit-
uation in the Congo.
UN officials expected no diffi-
culty in gaining control of Sa-
kania on the Northern Rhodesia
border and thus establishing rail
and road links with Elisabethville
for transport of supplies.
U Thant was informed by the
32-nation African group at the UN
yesterday that it supports him
fully on the current UN Congo
action. Ambassador Mohamed H.
El-Zayatt of the United Arab Re-
public, group chairman, conveyed
to Thant its attitude expressed
earlier at a group meeting.

By The Associated Press
LONDON - The Soviet Union
indicated yesterday that a prin-
cipal task of the forthcoming Com-
munist Party Congress in East Ber-
lin will be to further isolate the
Red Chinese from the rest of the
world Communist movement.
A Radio Moscow broadcast also
asserted that, learning from the
Cuban crisis, the Communists
would make proposals for solving
European problems-Berlin is the
biggest-on the basis of "reason-
able mutual concessions."
Radio Moscow set down the hard
line on China and soft line on Ber-
lin in a German-language broad-
cast four days before the congress
of East Germany's Socialist Unity
(Communist) Party opens in East
Berlin. Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev will attend.
h Mutual Concessions'
The tone of the pronouncements
on "mutual concessions" support-
ed the view of diplomatic circles
in London that Moscow will soon
ask Washington for a new round,
of talks on the future of Berlin.j
The broadcast shifted to China
by using the familiar guise of "the
Albanian leaders and those who
support them." Red China is Al-
bania's principal supporter.

Radio Moscow recalled the at-
tacks on Peking at the recent
Communist Party Congress in
Hungary, Bulgaria and Czechoslo-
"They resolutely condenmed the
Albanian leaders and those who
support them for their deviation
from the line of the entire Com-
munist and workers movement and
for their disbelief in the victory
of socialism (Communism) in the
peaceful contest with capitalism.
"There can be no doubt that the
forthcoming Congress of the So-
cialist Unity- Party will contribute
to the unity of the Communist
movement for the triumph of'
peace and socialism," Radio Mos-
cow said.
One of the biggest issues ex-

pected to crop up at the congress
centers on the status of East Ger-
man Communist leader Walter Ul-
Vote of Confidence
Because of the worsening eco-
nomic 'situation in East Germany,
various diplomatic sources have
interpreted Khrushchev's forth-
coming appearance as an indica-
tion that Ulbricht will not be re-
moved from his position.
Party strife is currently raging
in the country, with the opponents
of Ulbricht generally generally be-
ing labeled 'Stalinists'. Thus the
Soviet premier's presence, the
sources say, will give clear warn-
ing to dissident industrial and
party workers that Ulbricht is
still Moscow's choice.
