GOP Chief Leaves Position

Special To The Daily
George Van Peursem announced
his decision yesterday not to seek
re-election as GOP state central
committee chairman.
Informed Lansing sources say
Van Peursem was pressured into
the decision by Gov. George Rom-
ney. Van Peursem is a Republi-
can conservative, and a more mod-
erate "Romney type" Republican
at the head of the committee is
considered as being better able to
serve Romney's administration.
"Van Peursem was elected
chairman of the committee at a
time when the party gravely need-
ed his unifying ability as party
spokesman," Romney said at the
Personal Future
"I sat down and talked with
George Van Peursem recently
about the future of the GOP par-
ty and about his personal future,"
Romney continued. "I would have
liked to see Van Peursem in an ad-
ministration job, but he has de-
cided to work out his own future."
Van Peursem said he would seek
employment outside the party.
Michigan Young Republicans,
also meeting in Lansing yesterday,
passed a resolution commending
Van Peursem for his work as
chairman of the central commit-
On Van Peursem's successor,
Romney said he had "made no
commitments of support. At the
present time I know of three per-
sons well qualified for the job,
and of these three I have worked
the closest with Arthur Elliott."

DETROIT (-) - Former Democratic Gov. G. Mennen Williams
said yesterday he is willing to run against Republican Gov. George
Romney in 1964 if President John F. Kennedy considers the governor-

On China

Minister Jawaharlal Nehru talked
with officials of three nonaligned
nations yesterday on their pro-
posals for ending the Himalayan
border conflict with Red China.
The talks reached no conclusions

"There is always good will when
friends are meeting. But I can't
comment while the talks are still
going on," Nehru said.
Ceylon Prime Minister Sirimavo
Bandaranaike sounded optimistic.
"Every day I get more and more
hopeful," she said. She refused to
go into details.
Three at Table

conference table are Justice Min-
ister Asante Ofori-Atta of Ghana

Informed sources said India was
seeking to pin down details of the
Colombo proposals on truce posi-
tions of the Communist and In-
dian armies along the disputed
borders in northeast and north-
west India.
India is seeking to gain time to
build up its battered army after
a month of Red Chinese advances
last fall. The Communists called
off the fighting on their own Nov.
22 and announced they were with-
drawing troops from certain areas
of the battlefronts.

The other nonaligned nations
which took part in the Colombo
conference were Indonesia, Burma

City Cites St-umdent Vote Rules

Tells Press
Of Travel
To Bastion

A student is eligible to vote
in coming city elections if he
regards Ann Arbor as his home.
This seems to be the general
rule that the City Clerk follows
in his interpretation of several
court cases concerning the
question of whether or not col-
lege students should be permit-
ted 'to register.
According to City Attorney
Jacob F. Fahrner, the City
Clerk considers the following
six questions in determining a
student's eligibility to vote:
Is He Home?
1) Has the student married
and established his own home
with his wife in Ann Arbor?
And does he remain in that
home during the time when
school is not in session?
In this situation, and par-
ticularly when thenstudent has
been married and living in Ann
Arbor for more than a year,
the Clerk has registered the
student, according to Prof.
Nicholas D. Kazarinoff of the
mathematics department. In
most of the cases, Prof. Kazar-
inoff adds, the student's wife
has been living with her hus-
band in the city.
2) How long has the student
been living in Ann Arbor?
3) Is the student free from
parental control?
4) Where would the student
go in case of sickness or acci-
5) If the student is employed,
how much time does he devote
to gainful employment in rela-
tion to his academic pursuits?
6) What is the student's in-
tended place of residence after

Of course, the student must
also meet the state's require-
ments that he be a citizen of
the United States, at least 21
years of age, a state resident
for at least six months and a
resident of the city for at least
30 days before a regular, spe-
cial or primary election.
The criteria for student eli-
gibility are drawn primarily
from a case in which the Mich-
igan Supreme Court offered a
definition of "residence" as re-
gards students.
In the case of Attorney Gen-
eral vs. Miller, it was stated
that ". . . The great weight of
authority is that a student at
college who is free from paren-
tal control, regards the place
where the college is situated as
his home, and has no other to
which to return in case of sick-
ness or domestic affliction, is as
much entitled to vote as any
other resident of the place
where the college is situated."
Obeys Principles
The City Clerk also follows
the general principles drawn
up in "American Jurispru-
This article states that a vot-
ing residence is not acquired by
one who "resides in a place for
no other purpose than that of
securing an education, intend-
ing to return to his former
home after graduation."
According to City Clerk Fred!
J. Looker, trouble sometimes
arises on the question of
whether students should be
permitted to register because of
a provision in the state consti-
The provision states that "No
elector shall be deemed to have

gained or lost a residence .. .
while a student at any institu-
tion of learning." This provi-
sion has interpreted, however,
to mean that a student shall
not lose his usual voting privi-
leges to his home city and
In addition, trouble arose in
1960 because of a question con-
cerning the national census. It
was charged that Ann Arbor
collected $11 in refunds of,
various taxes due to the fact
that students were counted as
residents of the city.
This implied that all other-
wise eligible students should be
allowed to register for elections
because the city gained in their
being counted in the census.
The City Clerk, in a notice
to the City Council, said that
this argument had no bearing
in the matter of student regis-
tration. He also noted that the
city loses the count of all its
younger people who are away
at college in other cities.
Citizens of Ann Arbor who
are eligible to vote can regis-
ter from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Mon-
day-Friday at the City Clerk's
office in City Hall. Because of
the primary election in the
Third Ward, registration is
closed from Jan. 21-Feb. 18 in-
clusive, but will be reopened
until 8 p.m. March 4.
. The Third Ward primary is
on Feb. 18 and the general city
election is on April 1. The
Third Ward, which includes a
great many fraternities and
sororities, embraces that part
of the city lying south of Hill
St., east of the Ann Arbor'
Railroad right-of-way, and
west and south of Washtenaw.

Check Qualifications
Romney suggested a Republican
meeting be set up to examine the
'qualifications of all candidates for
the post of central committee
chairman. This suggestion to the
Republicans at the meeting was
an attempt to heal a rift betweer
the , "old guard" Republicans and
the new moderate Republicans led
by Romney,
"I know that Art Elliott does
not want to be chairman of this
committee unless it is by choice o1
the party itself," Romney said.
Romney also announced at the
committee meeting that "the vol-
unteers for Romney would work
together with the Republican par-
ty in campaigning for Michigan's
new Constitution."
YR's Plan Role
In Campaign
On onstitution
Special To The Daily
LANSING - State Young Re-
publicans, meeting in Lansing yes-
terday, discussed plans for the
spring campaign on the new state
Rep. Charles Davis (R-Ing-
ham), a constitutional convention
delegate, outlined a campaign to
convince the people yin Michigan
of the need for the new document.
He stressed the vital role Young
Republicans could play in the pas-
sage of the Constitution.
"The important job facing
Michigan Young Republicans is to
bring the constitution to the aver-
age person in our state. We must'
put the constitution in language
they can understand and appre-
ciate," Davis said.
"Concern over apportionment
provisions in the new constitution
' has taken precedence over other
provisions of equal or greater im-
portance. Such concern prevents
objective viewing of the docu-
ment," he asserted.
One Young Republican told the
group that "some groups are ob-
jecting to the new constitution be-
cause their special interests might
be interfered with at some future
The new constitution faces a
stiff battle when it will come to
a vote on April 1 of this year.
Various groups have been organ-
izing on both sides of the issues

Lauds Egan
For Regents.
Special To The Daily
LANSING-The Michigan Fed-
eration of Young Republicans an-
nounced their endorsement of
James Egan as candidate for the
Regents at their Lansing meeting
Egan, a Brown City high school
principal and staunch Republican,
joined William B. Cudlip in seek-
ing the two GOP nominations to
the Regents at the Feb. 15-16 state
Egan became the fourth person'
to declare his candidacy for the
two on the eight-man board. Be-j
sides Cudlip, who is seeking his
first term on the board, Regents
Eugene B. Power of Ann Arbor
and Donald M. D. Thurber of De-
troit will seek election on the
Democratic ticket.
"No one presently on the Re-
gents is or has been in education
and there is a need for a skilled
educator in that body," Egan said.
Egan, who served as a high
school principal for four years,
also cited the need for some
"young blood" on the board.
"There is not a single man on the
Regents who is under 58 years old.
At least we should have someone
who is able to finish out his eight-
year term," Egan, 33 years old,
Egan said he will base his cam-
paign for the GOP nomination on
his record.

Tshombe told newsmen he was
returning to Elisabethville, the
Katangan capital, and would go to
Kolwezi tomorrow. UN and dip-
lomatic sources in Elisabethvile
discounted the possibility he would
return there.
In leaving Elisabethville in vio-

carded the advice of \British and
Belgian consuls, and reports there
indicated these diplomatic friends
were washing their hands of him.
Millions Missing
Meanwhile, it was reported in
Washington an estimated $8 mil-
lion to $10 million worth of Con-
golese francs is reported missing
from the Katanga National Bank

the Katanga National Bank late
last month are trying to find out
what became of the francs under

At the moment, these inform-
ants said, the cash is missing and
UN officials who took control of

Consider Performing Laboratory

A research laboratory for the
performing arts is being consid-
ered at the University.
"The authors of the proposal be-
lieve that the performing arts are
entering a period of great change,
and that staging, architecture and
technology must keep up with ad-
vances in the performing arts,"
Prof. Joseph J. Wehrer of the
architecture college says.
The goals of such a project are
to develop new concepts of what
a production facility for the per-
forming arts should embrace, to
discover what aspects of the per-
foreign arts are most fundamen-
tal, and to develop a methodology
of architectural research in per-
forming arts.

Prof. Wehrer said.
The elements that may be con-
