NDEA Student Aid Cutback
Leaves State Unaffected
WASHINGTON-Hundreds of colleges and universities will have
to curtail their federally supported student loan programs this year
because loan requests have exceeded the amount of money available.
However, .the University and other state schools will be un-
affected by the cutback. The state is one of 13 whose heavy college
enrollment prompted the United States Office of Education to.
approve all the loan4 money requested by the state. The involuntary
- reduction resulted after loan re-
quests exceeded the $90 million
available in federal aid, according
to the education office, which ad--

"Mixed marriages are the foun-

Baha'i Student Group last night.
Speaking on "Interracial Mar-
riages: Catalyst in World Unity,"
Martin, a Baha'i leader, sees inter-
racial marriages as enriching this

that the Hawaiian and Israeli

Slayton Notes
Selection Goals
For Astronauts
HOUSTON (R)-With the selec-
tion of the next group of astro-
nauts next month, the nation will
have a supply to last until as late
as 1970, an astronaut said yester-
"This next group should take us
through the third lunar landing,"
1 Maj. Donald K. Slayton, one of
the original astronauts who is now
in charge of astronaut affairs, said.
The end of this decade is the
time limit President John F. Ken-
nedy has set for the first Ameri-
en moon landing.
The.spacecraft center will name
from 10-15 new astronauts "hope-
fully, in the early part of Octo-
ber," Slayton said.
Slayton said 26-30 men are un-
der consideration as potential as-
tronauts. They were culled from
271 volunteers.

Officials said this was the first
time the requests had gone over
the limit. The 1,548 participating
colleges and universities had asked
for loans totalling $122 million for
the present school year.
Some institutions may be forced
to cut down on the number of
loans while others may reduce the
size of the loans.
Recognizing the shortage of
money compared with the demand,
President John F. Kennedy has
asked Congress to raise the pres-
ent loan ceiling to $135 million.
Congress has not acted on the pro-
posal yet.
Hardest Hit
South Dakota, whose schools will
receive only 43 per cent of the
total requested, will be the hardest
hit by the curtailment.
New York institutions have also
been cut back sharply, from a
request of $12.4. million to $7.5
New Jersey's total was reduced
by more than $300,000 and Con-
necticut by a similar amount.
Criticize Move
The cutback was criticized by
college officials in Rhode Island,
which will receive only $516,637
of the $939,000 requested. They
were critical of what they termed
the delay in notifying them until
after most students had planned
their 1963-64 program.
The education office said that
the delayuwas unavoidable. The
agency added that schools were
notified in May that requests were
beginning to exceed the fund
The amount of money distribut-
ed to various institutions is de-
termined by a formula based on
college enrollments.
This factor explains why statis
like Michigan will receive the total
amount requested. Other states
getting the full amount are Ari-
zona, California, Delaware, Flor
ida, Georgia, Hawaii, Indiana,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Utah,
Virginia and Wisconsin.
Under the student loan program,
a participating college or univer-
sity is required to contribute a sum
equal at least to one-ninth of the
amount given by the federal- gov-
Priority is given to students with

Diem Sets
Of Election
State Department
Welcomes Changes,
'Return to Normalcy'
SAIGON (MP)-Martial law which
has prevailed in South Viet Nam
for 25 days will end at noon to-
morrow and civilian agencies will
resume all administrative func-
tions, President Ngo Dinh Diem
announced yesterday.
Even while student unrest was
reported expanding to the coun-
tryside, the president rescheduled
for Sept. 27 a national assembly
election that had been postponed
from its original date, Aug. 31.
Dropping of martial law would
be one step toward a return to
normalcy sought by the United
States, a worried ally of Diem's
administration in a war against
Communist guerrillas.
Good News
In Washington, the state depart-
ment welcomed the news and said
such an action would be a step in
the right direction.
"We have not yet received a'
report from our embassy in Sai-
gon," the state department spokes-
man said in the United States
capital. "But if the lifting of mar-
tial law means that the Vietna-
mese government is mving to un-
dertake constructive measures to
achieve adequate support to win
the war and to insure a better
future for the Vietnamese people,
it is a step in the right direction.
We shall be watching develop-
ments in Viet Nam closely."
Diem reminded his people that,
while martial law will end, the
technical state of emergency pro-
claimed Oct. 15, 1961, stays in
effect. The cotistitution empowers
the president, under the state of
emergency, to rule by decree.
Censor May Stay
There was no mention whether
press censorship, imposed at the
outset of martial law, will be abol-
ished. Censors delayed news of the
scope and significance of the mil-
itary crackdown on Buddhist op-
ponents of Diem's administration
Aug. 21 and are still using blue
pencils on press copy.
All government ministries have
been under at least the nominal
supervision of army officers in this
phase of Viet Nam's crisis. A strict
night curfew has been in effect
in key cities and troops have been
on duty throughout the capital.
A hint the situation might be
easing came in a report by usually
reliable sources that policeshave
freed Prof. Dao Duc Hoanh, a
member of the medical faculty of
the University of Saigon, and his
wire and daughter, arrested on
suspicion of anti-government ac-
Strike Ends
The informants said freeing of
Hoanh ended a strike in his be-
half by doctors and interns in four
hospitals 'run by the university's
faculty of medicine.

Tomorrow night the Ann Arbor
City Council will take final action
on a fair-housing ordinance draft-
ed by Fourth Ward Councilman
Wendall E. Hulcher (R).
The ordinance, passed on first
reading on July 29, has had a his-
tory of controversy. Civil rights
groups in Ann Arbor claim the
Hulcher ordinance is inadequate
and does not cover enough of the
housing to be worthwhile.
A total of 17 people. have been
arrested for protesting the present
ordinance, and one man was con-
victed by a jury trial. There is
indication the demonstrations for
a strong fair-housing law will con-
tinue. if the Hulcher ordinance

units, whether or

The units could be apartments,
houses or lots.
Also covered are financial in-
stitutions, housing advertising and
real estate personnel. Maximum
penalty for violation would be a
$100 fine.
A number of clergymen in Ann
Arbor have offered an alternative
ordinance. They claim the current
ordinance covers only 33 per cent
of the dwelling units for sale or
for rent in the city. The "clergy-
men's ordinance" would cover all
city dwelling units for sale or for
rent, with the exception of two-
family houses that are owner-oc-

UN Nations
Request Seat
For Chiniese
World Federation of United Na-
tions Associations adjourned its
latest session last night after
adopting a resolution proposing
that Communist China be brought
into the Geneva disarmament
talks. The United States delega-
tion, among others, abstained on
this resolution.
The federation, based in Gene-
va, describes itself as a people's
movement for the United Nations.
It consists of 52 national associa-
tions, and 48 of them took part in
its 18th plenary assembly, which
began here Monday.
On the last two days, the as-
sembly adopted resolutions on po-
litical, economic, social, education-
al and administrative subjects.
One set out that the assembly, as
the federation's legislative body:
"Believes that the People's Re-
public of China (Red China)
should be invited to join the 18-
nation (disarmament) committee,
"Urges on the governments of
NATO and the Warsaw Treaty the
conclusion of a non-aggression
pact between them,
"Urges the establishment of nu-
clear-free zones in Africa, Latin
America, the Middle East, Asia,
Central Europe, Scandinavia, the
Balkans, and in certain other parts
of the world,
"Suggests the conclusion of a
treaty forbidding the arming with
nuclear weapons of vehicles orbit-
ing in outer space."
The resolution called on all na-
tional United Nations associations
"to direct their efforts to mobilize
public opinion in support of these
Nineteen delegations voted for
the resolution.
In other resolutions, the dele-
gates appealed for cessation of
underground nuclear tests, with
proper controls, and for "the early
negotiation of a German peace
They also urged that United'
Nations associations influence
their governments to embargo
arms shipments to South Africa
and ° devise United Nations eco-
nomics measures to persuade
South Africa to abandon race
The delegates further appealed
to member associations to press
for immediate implementation of
the 1960 United Nations declara-
tion against colonialism.

Ask-omen's Training Unit

A center "designed primarily for
the married woman whose ad-
vanced education or career may
be interrupted and who will wish
to resume further University train-
ing on a part-time basis" has been
proposed by Mrs. Stanley. Cain,
assistant to Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Roger Heyns.
The Center for the Continuing
Education of Women of the Uni-
versity of Michigan is designed
to enable the intelligent and edu-
cated married woman to fill the
needs of society for skilled workers
within the present patterns of her
family life.
A return to college for further
educational training has become
more and morg necessary in the
preparation fox a particular oc-
cupational objective. The center
will aid the University to meet its
responsibility to augment their
present educational resourses with
programs and services for this
specific group of students.
Mainly for Housewives
The center is designed priinarily
for the married woman. Although
it doesn't exclude assistance to
the single woman, she will gen-
erally be able to pursue further

terruption and the problems that

No One Service
While such students may obtain
some part of the information and
guidance they need from a variety
of sources, there is no single serv-
ice in the University to consider
the total situation of such a stu-
It is of special importance for
the center to keep in touch with
occupational trends and to coun-
sel women- as to the opportunities
now available or likely to become
so in the next decade. In the cases
where employment is the goal fol-
lowing a program of study, the
counseling service must help
match the women to the needed
educational training and to the
actual or potential job opportun-
A second function of the center
will be to work with the adminis-
tration and faculty in order to
"achieve a greater amount of flex-
ibility in the University require-'
ments and programs." This is
necessary in order to take full
advantage of the resources and
needs of these returning students.
