McNamara Gives
Viet Nam Report

U.S. Troops May Leave by 1965
WASHINGTON (P)-Secretory of Defense Robert S. McNamara
and Gen. Maxwell D. Taylor told President John F. Kennedy yesterday
they believed the need for major American involvement in South Viet
Nam's anti-Communist guerrilla war will be ended by December 1965.
The White House said McNamara and Taylor, just back from an
on-the-spot inspection tour of South Viet Nam, are convinced that the
Communist Viet Cong can be licked by the end of next year br, failing

Negro Faces
To Education

"The high educationa aspira-
tions of modein Negro parents are
a source of despair for their chil-
dren, who often feel inadequate to
the task of academic success," Dr.
Martin Gold said last night.
He spoke before a meeting of
prospective participants in the
Ann.Arbor Tutorial Project.
Dr. Gold 'stressed the social-
psychelqgical problems likely to be
encountered in the tutors' at-
* tempts to help Negro children get
more out of their learning ex-
* Ability To Learn
Considering the child's ability
to learn, Dr. Gold stressed the de-
pendence of IQ measurements on
heredity. He said that though Ne-
groes show a lower average than

that, that the security forces of
the Vietnamese government will
be able by then to suppress the
Communist guerrillas without out-
side assistance.
In, a five-point statement of
American policy, the WhiteHouse
said that repressive actions against
Vietnamese Buddhists by the gov-
ernment of Ngo Dinh Diem "have
not yet significantly affected the
military effort."
Adverse Affect
But the statement said there
could be an adverse affect in the
"The political situation in South
Viet Nam remains deeply serious,"
the statement said. "The United
States has made clear its continu-
ing opposition to any repressive
In addition to reporting "their
judgment that the major part of
the United States military task
(in Viet Nam) can be completed'by
the end of 1965," McNamara and
Taylor said that 1000 American
military personnel probably can
be withdrawn from South Viet
Nam by the end of this year. These
would be personnel used to train
Vietnamese troops.
Approves Statement
Kennedy approved the policy
statement on the basis of recom-
mendations received from McNa-
mara, Taylor and Henry Cabot
Lodge, the United States ambassa-
dor in Saigon.
The White House said McNa-
mara and Taylor gave Kennedy

tional Security Council, a report
that "included a number of classi-
fied findings and.- recommenda-

The security of South Viet Nam
was labeled in the policy docu-
ment as ("a major interest of the
United States and of other free
And it said this country would
continue to work with the people
and the government there to "deny
this country to Communism" and
suppress the Viet Cong.
The military program in South
Viet Nam has made progress, the
White House said, "and is sound
in principle, though improvements
are being energetically sought."
It added that major United
States assistance in support of the
military effort would be needed
"only until the insurgency has
been suppressed or until the na-
tional security forces of the gov-
ernment of South Viet Nam are
capable of suppressing it."

r "would wipe out" present equal-

Green's criticism. He said that he

Another Republican, John B.

c mitteeman and chairman of the
Michigan Commission on the Ag-

stream of criticism.'He suggested

s from his plan to defer the prop-

Speaking at a hearing of the

t said, "Adding that interest on the
deferred taxes just makes the pro-

d for the senior citizens to accept."
y Lt. Gov. T. John Lesinski also
e attacked Romney for what he call-
e Romney's " mishandling the

Romney has alienated Republi-

troubles the administration in-
volves the possibility that the Rus-

American wheat to Cuba-or that

Any such procedure likely would
have wide repercussions in view
of the administration's efforts to

with the Castro regime.
Accept Plans
For Housing
The Ann Arbor Zoning Board of
Appeals approved plans for the re-
tired University alumni housing
project yesterday.
Fifth Ward Republican Council-
man Bent F. Nielsen noted that
the plans submitted for the hous-
ing project to be located at Oxford
and Cambridge Roads met all the
legal requirements of the zoning
ordinance covering that area. -
"The principal criterion for
whether or not a housing unit
meets the. specifications of the
zoning ordinance is how many
square feet per unit can be placed
on a certain lot," Nielsen said.
Actually the proposed alumni
housing exceeded this requirement
by 15,000 square feet, he added.
Opponents of the project argued
that it was wrong to consider the
alumni housing units, which will
hold two families per unit, a two-
family dwelling units as specified
under the terms of the zoning or-
Construction will begin as soon
as commitments for 11 of the 20
proposed units are received, Alum-
ni Treasurer Paul R. Kempf said.
Kempf, who was chairman of
the alumni housing study commit-
tee, notes that construction of the
planned four single-family and
eight two-family units will cost
several hundred thousand dollars.
"This is a pioneering effort in the
area of alumni housing," Kempf

amendments offered by SGC Pres-

effect, It removed the stipulation
that the chairman of the commit-
tee be a member of the faculty or,
an alumnus with an L.L.B. degree,
although Council may still appoint
such a member if it so desires.
The second amendment submit-
ted by Brown outlined policies
which would apply in the event
that one of the three judges on
the tribunal is unable to partici-
pate in the final determination of
a case already in progress.
It stated that in such a situa-
tion the "final determination shall
be the decision of the tribunal"
where the other two judges concur
in the final determination, but "if
the other two judges disagree up-
on the final determination or if
either of them refuses to proceed
further with only two judges, a
new hearing shall be commenced
before the full tribunal, augment-
ed by the successor judge."
