Joint Judic's acceptance of the

came in a closed deliberation af-

Richard Mandel, '64, had entered
the request in an open hearing at
the Judic meeting.

Jackson Students Quiet
Following Stoning of Police
JACKSON (M--Students attended classes quietly in racially inte-
grated Parkside High School yesterday following Wednesday's out-
break of stone throwing at police.
Principal George Kiesel, 40, ex-Marine and former college foot-
ball player, took charge.
"I will not," he told his attentive audience, "tolerate anyone
in this school who is going to try to deny an education to anyone else
- in this school." Police stood watch
as the approximately 1500 Negro
Sta te Board and white students came to the
newly opened, $3 million school.

Rejects Bid
For Delta
The proposal to establish a pri-
vately financed degree-granting
"senior college as an adjunct to
Saginaw Valley's Delta Community
College was defeated for the sec-
ond time in two months yesterday
by the State Board of Education.
Dividing 2-2 on the vote were
Dr. Lynn Bartlett, superintendent
of public instruction, and Frank
Hartman in favor of the proposal,
and Board Chairman Cornelia
Robinson and James O'Neil, who
voted against it.
President Samuel Marble of
Delta College stated that the next
move in the thumb area's attempt
to establish' a four year college
was now uncertain.
"We have agreed not to put
forth any mre proposals .until
after Gov. Romney's Citizen's
Committee on Higher Education
has presented their report," Marble
Other Plans
The Blue Ribbon Committee is
studying various plans for provid-
ing four years of college to Sagi-
naw-Bay City residents in con-
Junction with its study of state-
wide education needs.
One proposal, suggesting the es-
tablishment of a University branch
in the tri-county area was refused
support earlier this year - by the
Michigan Coordinating Council for
Public Higher Education and the
Michigan State Council of College
A so-called "piggyback plan"
that would have set up an inde-
pendent four-year degree granting
institution in addition to the pres-
ent two year Delta College met
with defeat in the Legislature
about the same time.
The main objection to a Univer-
sity branch at Delta was the fear
of other institutions that similar
institutions would then be estab-
lished all over the state.
Delta Proposal
"In his speech to the Saginaw
Valley Chamber of Commerce on
April 19 Gov. Romney commented
that he would ask the committee
to make a proposal concerning the
Delta area," he continued.
Marble also mentioned that the
Attorney Gneeral's office has said
Delta would have a legal claim in
case of a suit and that its rights
had been transgressed in being
denied the charter.
The reasons for opposing, ac-
cording to the president were 'that
Mrs. Robinson believed a dan-
gerous precedent for the founding
of institutions would be establish-
ed. Also, O'Neil was not satisfied
that the standards of the new
college would be high enough.
Were To Follow Plan
The proposal offered to raise
funds totaling five million dollars
for a new college and then follow
the state's plans for education in
the area, Marble said.
At the present time Delta is con-
ducting third year nursing classes.
The students are being given a
full program, although as of yet
Delta will not be able to confer
degrees upon them.
Three Students

Evacuate School
The school was evacuated be-
cause of a fake bomb threaton
the telephone after regular morn-
nig classes. Police and firemen
found nothing in a search of the
building. Afternoon classes went
on as scheduled.
Nearly a score of white and Ne-
gro youths were taken into cus-
tody after a scuffle on the school
parking lot Wednesday. Police
broke up a crowd of Negro adults
Wednesday night. There were no
Equal Enrollment
Parkside High's enrollment is
about evenly divided between white
and Negro. The school opened for
its first glasses Sept. 14. Most of
its students come from other inte-
grated schools.
Meanwhile in Washington, Pres-
ident John F. Kennedy is sending
Earl H. Blaik, former Army foot-
ball coach, and Kenneth C. Royall,
former secretary of the Army, into
Birmingham, Ala., to try to ease
racial tensions there.
Kennedy said the two men will
go to Birmingham in the next few
days "tio represent- me personally
in helping the city to work as a
unit in overcoming the fears and
suspicions which now exist."
Confers with Negroes
The President,' who conferred
with seven Negro leaders and an-
nounced he will receive a delega-
tion of white leaders from Birm-
ingham. Monday, issued a state-
ment urging the "cooperation and
restraint of all citizens."
He said the tragic death of four
Negro girls in the bombing of a
Birmingham church last Sunday
has given rise to fears and distress.
The Rev. Martin Luther King,
speaking for the delegation that
had an hour-long conference with
Kennedy, said Birmingham's Ne-
groes are "frustrated, confused and
almost on the verge of despair."
King, president of the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference,
read a statement which said the
Negro .leaders had promised full
cooperation with measures taken
by the President to avert further
violence in Birmingham.
These include the naming of
Blaik and Royall to serve as Ken-
nedy's personal representatives.
"There is a lack of confidence
in the law enforcement officials,"
King said. "This confidence has
been lessened by the presence of
state troopers in Birmingham who
by their brutality continually har-
ass and intimidate Negro citizens."
He described the meeting with
Kennedy as "a very fruitful con-
King said they discussed the Ne-
gro leaders' request that federal
troops be sent into Birmingham to
replace state troopers.

IFC judicial committee which
would assume the authority-the
IFC Executive Committee.
The executive committee con-
sists of IFC senior officers, dis-
trict fraternity representatives
(house presidents), alumni rep-
resentatives, a junior IFC repre-
sentative and an Office of Student
Affairs voting member.
Mandel presented specifically
for Judic's consideration the
unanimous proposal of the execu-
tive committee "to consider any
(fraternity group) violation re-
frred to us by the OSA."
Answers Objections
In support of the proposal he
answered objections that by its
Greek composition the executive
committee would be unable to
serve as an unbiased group in
fraternity cases.
"We feel that we're strong
enough internally so that we can
rise above petty fraternity poli-
tics," Mandel said.
He noted that members of the
committee "directly connected with
the group in question will be dis-
qualified from the poceedings."
IFC President Clifford Taylor,
'64, emphasized IFC's interest in
"watchdogging its own house." He
called the executive committee "a
group dedicated to the fraternity
system and the solution of its
Mandel went on to explain that
IFC's assuming jurisdiction to
handle discipline complaints
against fraternity groups was in
line with repeated OSA sugges-
In accepting the jurisdiction, the
committee realizes that its de-
cisions "are of consequence not
only to the fraternity involved but
to the whole fraternity system
generally," he said.
To Retain Powers
Mandel reminded Joint Judic
that it would retain its power as
a board of appeal on all cases
brought before IFC.
Citing structural revisions nec-
essary to implement the change,
Mandel explained that the IFC
constitution already gives the
executive committee jurisdiction
over matters of fraternity conduct
referred it by the OSA.
The Joint Judic constitution
can be amended in the bylaws
such that the Judic referral com-
mittee is instructed to refer fra-
ternity violation complaints to the
IFC, he said.
Joint Judic last year handled
five cases of the type that would
come before the IFC executive
committee, Mandel noted. They
were all for fraternity drinking
Announce Date
For Plase-out
Of High School
The date for the phasing out of
University High School was set
yesterday as September, 1967.
The announcement of Septem-
ber, 1967 as the target date for
completion of Ann Arbor's second
public high school by the project's
architects, Charles W. Lane Asso-
ciates, Inc., determined the phase-
out date for U-High.
Sources at the School of Edu-
cation related that the University
had been advised of the projected
date and were making appropriate
plans to stay in operation until at
least June, 1967.
Prof. William H. Mills, assistant
to the director of University School
said yesterday that:
"University High School will re-
main in business until the new
city senior high school is opened."
The University had pledged last
spring to keep U-High operating
until facilities could be obtained
for the adequate education of the
school's students.

Board MeetsJ
Over EMU
Representatives of E a s t e. r n
M i c h i g a n University's Faculty
Council met with the State Board
of Education last night to estab-
lish procedure for selecting a new
president for the Ypsilanti col-
, Current president Eugene B.
Elliott was fired by the State
Board last June following a NCA
report on low morale conditions
at Eastern. He. will continue in
office, however, until June 30,
The NCA report was requested
by the State Board after it had
received complaints from Eastern
personnel and interested citizens
that the school administration
lacked direction and was causing
disillusionment among faculty and
NCA Investigation
An NCA investigation team vis-
ited the campus to obtain first
hand knowledge of the situation.
The final report was k pt partially
secret, by the State Board until
official requests from Gov. George
Romney made the complete in-
vestigation public.
Main points in the study stated
that there was poor faculty-ad-
ministration communication -and
that Eastern lacked a comprehen-
sive goal.
Although it is the primary re-
sponsibility of the State Board to
fill the vacancy, it has pledged to
work in close cooperation with
university personnel during the
selection process.
Open to Suggestions
The board is now open to sug-
gestions of candidates. During
screening procedures, every effort
will be made to obtain advice from
the faculty committee and also
enable them to meet the candi-
dates, James O'Neil, Republican
board member from Livonia said.
Whether the board will actually
appoint the new president is still
undetermined. The responsibility
may be turned over to Eastern's
individual governing board if such
a body is created by the Legisla-
ture in the coming session.
O'Neil, as well as the presidents
of the four regional universities
have recommended to Romney and
Legislature leaders that this action
be taken as soon as possible.
Another item on the State
Board's September agenda was a
proposal for raising the pay scales
of faculty and nonacademic per-
A hike of from five to 10 per
cent for faculty and slightly less
for other employes had been tent-
atively approved at the August

It is customary to bar the pub-
lic when the head of a major
power comes to UN readquarters,
but precautions are particularly
tight this time in viek of a rash
of recent demonstrations inside
and outside the building.
Thant To Greet President

at 11 a.m. Kennedy will be greeted
at the door by UN Secretary-Gen-

After he speaks, Kennedy will
go to the Indonesian lounge out-
side the Assembly Hall and head
a reception line to shake hands
with the heads of the UN delega-
tions. The Indonesian lounge is
named for its decor and two wood
carvings, of peace and prosperity,
donated by Indonesia.
To Return to Assembly
Following this ceremony, the
President will return to the As-
sembly and greet the 1500 United
States members of the UN staff.
Kennedy and Canadian Prime
Minister Lester B. Pearson, a for-
mer Assembly president, will be
honor guests at a luncheon given
at headquarters by Thant.
It is understood that Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gro-

Cutler Raises Doubt
Ont Proposed Tribuntal
Prof. Richard Cutler of the psychology department and chairman
of the Student Relations Sub-Committee of the University Senate
last night viewed recent actions by Student Government Council
to establish regulations over student group membership selection:
In particular, he expressed some skepticism about Council's move
to place a faculty member with student and administration members
on a t ;bunal to decide cases
of alleged discrimination. T U
Startling but Superficial Hruska Gives
Prof. Cutler saw a "startling,
but possibly only superficial re-
semblance" to a plan previously
suggested to the SRC by S.C. AtBa Support
that time, the SRC expressed "ser-

ious reservations" about such a
plan, he noted.
Its skepticism was sufficient so
that it eclined to recommend the
appointment of a faculty repre-
sentative to the proposed commit-
Th SRC at that time question-
ed whether Council was "on solid
legal ground in deny:7g recogni-
tion to non-conforming student
groups," Prof. Cutler said.
"It is not apparent at this time
whether the recently adopted
policy of SGC provides a sounder
legal foundation for action. If it
does, one of the faculty's concerns
3iay possibly be removed."
Clear Power
Prof. Cutler recognized that "it
now seems clear that the Regents
intend that SGC have the author-
ity to withdraw recognition" from
those groups found guilty of dis-
criminatory practices.
However, he noted that "wheth-
er the proposed tri-party panel
will be able effectively to exer-
cise the authority delegated to
SGC is an open question, particul-
arly if the original questionscon-
cerning proper legal steps have not
been answered.""
Yet he confirmed that the SRC
will "examine in detail the posi-
tions of both SGC and the Office

SRC's actions indicate that this
committee will support enthusias-
ticly any plan which promises to

man L. Hruska (R-Neb) announc-
ed to the Senate yesterday he has
decided with difficulty "against
a background of some doubt and
brutal realism" to vote for the
limited nuclear test ban treaty.
His departure from the slowly
dwindling list of undecided Sena-
tors offset the switch, earlier in
the day, to the ranks of treaty
foes by Sen. Frank J. Lausche
(D-Ohio) who had been counted
as a supporter.
That kept the total of backers
at 81, raised the opponents to 14
and left only five in the undecided
column of an unofficial Associated
Press list. When the Senate votes
next Tuesday, it will require a
two-thirds majority of Senators
voting-67 if all 100 vote- to
ratify the pact.
Foregone Conclusion
Ratification is considered a fore-
gone conclusion. But President
John F. Kennedy has urged ap-
proval by "a margin large enough
to show the world that the Ameri-
can people want a just peace."
In a Senate chamber containing
only a handful of Senators listen-
ing most of the day, Sen. Robert
C. Byrd (D-W Va) a declared op-
ponent of the pact, delivered a
lengthy speech. Several times he
was interrupted by other foes of

Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gro-
myko came up yesterday with new
proposals on disarmament, includ-
ing the holding of an 18-nation
summit meeting on that issue be-
fore next June 30.
He offered Moscow as a site.
His proposals were contained in
a major policy speech to the
a ao oiysec oteUnited Nations General Assembly
that was devoid of cold war lan-
guage as far as the United States
and the other big Western powers
were concerned. But it wtas vit-
riolic in respect to West Germany
and Chancellor Konrad Adenauer.
One Speech Ahead
Gromyko spoke in advance of
the policy speech to be delivered
in the Assembly this- morning by
President John F. Keninedy.
In general, UN diplomats wel-
comed the .mifd language and
Western leaders said they would
give careful study to the dis-
armament proposals.
Besides proposing the summit
meeting on disarmament Gromyko
advanced a plan to let the United
States and the Soviet Union re-

Similar reaction came from
