Of Merger Plan to Pierpont, Lewis
The Union-League merger report, which was sent to the Regents
for approval last summer, is now again in the hands of University offi-
cials, Michigan League President Gretchen Groth, '64, announced at
last night's League Council meeting.
The report was approved last spring by both Union and League
governing boards. It was referred in July to Vice-President for Business

... treaty delay

Tries Delay
Of Test Ban
Goldwater (R-Ariz) ignited sharp
debate in the Senate yesterday by
launching a move to delay pass-
age of the limited nuclear test ban
treaty until Russia removes all
its military forces from Cuba.
Senate Democratic leader Mike
Mansfield of Montana told Gold-
water that such a formal reserva-
tion would "require negotiation
not only with the Soviet Union
but with over 80 other nations."
Mansfield said about half the
world will ask for reservations of
one kind or another and "we will
be back where we started from."
The assistant Democratic leader,
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of Min-
nesota, denounced Goldwater's
move as "partisan mischief." He
said "it would wreck the nuclear
test ban treaty and would result
in a staggering setback for the
United States internationally."
Sen. Jacob K. Javits (R-NY)
said Goldwater's reservation would
"open up all questions involved
in the Cold War" rather than let
the Senate act on a treaty on
which the Russians and the United
States agree.
Sen. Gordon Allott (R-Colo)
told Goldwater the stipulation
about Cuba should have been
made when the treaty was under
negotiation. Saying the adminis-
tration had "dropped the ball" at
Moscow, Allott said "we have pass-
ed up the strategic time to have
insisted on the withdrawal of
troops from Cuba."
Sen..Kenneth B. Keating (R-
NY) said that as strongly as he
feels about getting the Russians
out of Cuba, he would be "very
reluctant to go along with" any
reservation requiring re-negotia-
tion of the pact.
Formal debate on the treaty is
scheduled to begin Monday.
Goldwater, a front runner for
the 1964 Republican presidential
nomination, had previously urged
in an Aug. 27 speech that getting
the Russians out of Cuba and
tearing down the Berlin Wall be
made the price of ratification of
the treaty.
The Arizona senator laid special
stress on his proposed reservation
dealing with Cuba and said he
would fight for it. He said in es-
sence the reservationswould say
"that the effectiveness of the
treaty be deferred until the USSR
has removed all nuclear weapons
and all military-technical person-
nel from Cuba."

mendations. Miss Groth reported
that no further information has
been received on the status of the
The progress of the report was
slightly complicated by interfer-
ence from the University Alumnae
Association of Detroit in an ef-
fort to "save the League" from the
merger. The group, feeling the
League should be operated for
women only, appealed to local
alumnae chapters across the coun-
try, but response has been negli-
gent, Miss Groth said.
The purpose of the proposed Un-
ion-League merger was to create
"a real university center, a co-
educational organization serving
the need of all segments of the
University community: students,
faculty, alumni, administration
and their guests," the original re-
port states.
The University center's govern-,
ing board would replace the pres-
ent Union and League boards. The
plan also recommended that the
Union and League activity be sup-
planted by a single coeducational
activities organism.
The report suggested that an
implementation committee be ap-

must precede the committee ap-

... counseling coordinator

Accepts Job
Mrs. Elizabeth Davenport, as-
sistantto the vice-president for
student affairs, has been appoint-
ed to the post of coordinator of
Her last year's responsibility as
head of women's housing is now
included in the duties of Peter
Haun, recently-appointed director
of housing.
"The University has several
well-developed counseling services
on campus. In addition there is a
greatly varied student population,"
Mrs. Davenport pointed out.
Supervise Referral
"It will be my job to supervise
the referral of students and their
problems to the most suitable
counselor or service available
here," she explained.
Some of the counseling services
involved are the academic, health,
financial, and remedial reading
areas, she said.
Mrs. Davenport claimed the goal
of her office is "to give the stu-
dent the opportunity to get the
very best out of his academic life
Same Goal
She declared that each agency
of the University has a different
and particular purpose, but each
has that same goal. "If this were
not so, there would be no need for
my office."
The job of coordinator of coun-
seling also includes protection of
students' personal non-academic
The scope of her office was de-
termined two years ago in the
Reed Report, a plan of reorganiza-
tion aimed at implementing an
Office of Student Affairs. Prior to
the report, separate deans for men
and women concerned themselves
with all general student problems.
The OSA is now functionally re-
vised to include individual direc-
tors for housing, financial aid,
student organizations and coun-
seling without regard to a stu-
dent's sex.
Mrs. Davenport expressed en-
thusiasm'for her new position. She
said the talents of herself and
Mark Noffsinger, assistant director
of residence halls, are now being
used to best advantage. She was
assistant to the dean of women
in the past. Noffsinger has had
long experience in men's housing
As assistant dean of women and

Party Heads
For 1964
State Democratic Party Chair-
man Zolton Ferency and State
Republican Chairman Arthur El-
liott discussed state and national
politics for their respective Uni-
versity chapters of the Young
Democrats and Young Republicans
last night,
Ferency predicted that there
would be no primary elections
next year for the office of gover-
nor and that the gubernatorial
candidate would come from the
higher ranks of the party.
Ferency also announced plans
to eliminate the party's $250,000
debt. "The Michigan Democratic
organization is, enthusiastically,
in good condition; however finan-
cially, it is horrible," he reported.
As for possible gubernatorial
candidates, Ferency named such
party leaders as former Gover-
nor John B. Swainson, Congress-
man Neil Staebler (D-Mich),
Highway Commissioner John C.
Mackie and Secretary of State
James M. Hare.
Cavanagh Possible
Ferency said Detroit Mayor
Jerome P. Cavanagh "is not
making noise like a candidate,"
but may figure into the race by
next year.
He added that the nomination
will hinge strongly on what fiscal
reform progress Gov. George M.
Romney makes in the next 90
days. "If Romney has no major
problems and smooth sailing in
the Legislature, we will have to
look pretty hard for a candidate,"
Ferency explained.
Addressing the Young Republi-
can Club Elliott praised the "vol-
unteer campaign militia" of stu-
dents for "spearheadipg impress-
ive victories" in recent Michigan
campaigns. He cited as example
election of Gov. Romney, increas-
ed strength in the House of Rep-
resentatives, and the passage of
a new state constitution.
Narrow Labels
In calling for party unity, he
urged a "maximum effort to elect
all party candidates without re-
sorting to the foolish nonsense of
backing candidates according to
narrow and often times mislead-
ing political labels."
Elliott noted that a recent con-
vention of Young Democrats had
caused President John F. Kennedy
"severe embarrassment" w h e n
they passed resolutions calling for
initiation of diplomatic relations
with Cuba, and withdrawal of
United States troops from Viet-
"As Republicans, let us concen-
trate on the things that unite us,
not on those that divide us, in
the upcoming presidential cam-
paign," he urged.

BIRMINGHAM - Negro attor-
neys asked a federal court yes-
terday to force the city Board of
Education to re-open three Birm-,
ingham schools closed in the face
of scheduled desegregation.
In a separate motion, they asked
an injunction against Gov. George
Wallace to stop him and other
state officials from interfering
with operation of the schools and
any others ordered integrated.

In Washington, the Justice De-

is investigating the dynamiting of

Robert C. Arthur, president of
the city Board of Education, said
he hoped the three schools closed
in Birmingham "will be re-opened
Monday." He stressed the shut-
down was temporary.
The three schools closed yes-

five Negro pupils to previously

In asking for an injunction
against Wallace, the Negro attor-

Taylor Outlines Benefits of Greek Life

Approximately 500 prospective rushees were introduced to rush
procedures and fraternity practices at the mass rush meeting last
"Perhaps the most crushing and unmatchable argument in
favor of Greek living units is the firm friendships and.loyalties that
are developed," Interfraternity Council President Clifford W. Taylor,
'64, said.
He also listed "academic enlargement," "leadership qualities"
and "social alertness" as advantages fraternities offer.
Office of Student Affairs Advisor to Fraternities John Feldkamp
urged rushees to "get a good sampling" of University chapters,
which he called "45 unique and challenging groups."
Brothers of Delta Tau Delta entertained the group with school
songs, fraternity songs and an excerpt from their winning IFC Sing
medley, "The Streets of Laredo."
Representatives from each chapter answered rushees questions
in informal sessions after the meeting.
