To 'Darkhorse' Rival
Brundage Lays Defeat to Desire
For New National Locale for Event
BADEN-BADEN, Germany (A)-Mexico City, a decided darkhorse
andidate, was awarded the 1968 Olympic Games yesterday by a solid
vote over favored Detroit.
Mexico City and Detroit, along with Buenos Aires and Lyon,
France, had put in bids for the sports extravaganza, and many thought
the American city had swung the vote its way with an impressive
presentation of its case. Mexico City got 30 votes, Detroit 14, Lyon 12
and Buenos Aires 2.
Otto Mayer, chancellor of the International Olympic Committee,
said the 1968 Games would be held in the first two weeks in October.

'U Graduate
In Space Role
A third University graduate
joined the nation's astronauts
Air Force Capt. Theodore C.
Freeman, '60E, was one of the 14
men named by the United States
Space Agency to the select group
of potential spacemen. This raises
the total number of currently-
active American astronauts to 23.
A jubilant Prof. Wilbur C. Nel-
son, chariman of the aeronautical
and astronautical engineering de-
partment, said Freeman's appoint-
ment gives the University a 50-50
chance of seeing one of its grad-
uates on the first lunar team. All
three University astronauts-Cap-
tains James McDivitt, '59E; Ed-
ward White, '59E, and Freeman-
are from Prof. Nelson's depart-
Prof. Nelson said Freeman grad-
uated from the Naval Academy in
1953 and was sent here by the Air
Force in 1958 to do graduate work.
Freeman was "a good student,"
Prof. Nelson commented.
Maj. Donald K. Slayton. one of
the original astronauts named in
1959, said that the 14 newcomers
should be the ones to carry out
the moon program. The new
group has an edge over the older
astronauts because its members
are younger-averaging 31 years.

"The 1964 Olympics will be in To-
kyo, Oct. 10-24.
Avery Brundage of Chicago,
president of the IOC, told the
Detroit delegation that it had put
on an impressive presentation but
the vote went against it because
many IOC delegates thoughtit was
time for the Games to go. to a
countryrthat so far had not had
the honor.
Previous U.S. Sites
Los Angeles had the Olympics
in 1932 and St. Louis in 1904.
Jerome Cavanagh, mayor of De-
troit and a member of the city's
delegation said:
"Naturally we are disappointed
at the decision. However, we know
it was a difficult one for the IOC.
Detroit accepts this vote in the
true sporting tradition and Olym-
pic spirit."
Congratulates Mexico
"We congratulate the commit-
tee from Mexico and their coun-
"The persistent and magnifi-
cent effort that went into the
Detroit presentation will be ap-
plied to any other things that De-
troit may be called on to handle
in the future."
Gov. George Romney of Michi-
gan, who flew here to head De-
troit's bid for the Games said:
"My only real feeling at the mo-
ment is one of terrible disappoint-
ment. But we'll have another go
to get the 1972 Games if I live
long enough."
It was unlucky seven for Detroit.
The big industrial city has tried
seven times to land the Olympics.
Seven times it hay failed.

For '62-63
Increase in Outlay
Reaches Ten Per Cent
The University's total expendi-
tures for 1962-63 were $125,953,500
it was reported at the Regents
meeting yesterday by Vice-Presi-
dent for Business and Finance
Wilbur K. Pierpont.
Last years figures represent
about a ten per cent increase
over the previous year's total of
Running through a breakdown
of the total, Pierpont reported
that $50,926,500 of the total figure
resulted from revenue for general
purposes and $75,108,990 resulted
from revenue for designated pur-
The report showed that the
federal government had contribut-
ed $36,575,000 -of the -total ex-
penditure figure. This was the
most significant increase among
the various figures contributing to
the budget. The previous year fed-
eral government expenditures
amounted to $27,867,890.
Student Fees
Student fees amounted to $13,-
187,900; medical and hospital serv-
ices-$15,953,40.0; residence halls,
student centers and other activi-
ties-$13,093,900, and gifts, grants,
departmental and investment in-
come provided the balance.
The report also listed Univer-
sity projects completed during
1962-63. They include; Kresge
Hearing Research Institute, the
Physics and Astronomy Building,
the Church street parking struc-
ture addition, the Thompson street
parking structure and four re-
search facilities projects.
Unfinished Projects
Those projects continued or
started in 1962-63 are; the heat-
ing plant expansion, hospital elec-
trical and general renovations,
hospital physical medicine addi-
tion to the hospital, Institute of
Science and Technology, Kresge
medical research addition, the
Lawrence Buhl research center for
human genetics, the Oxford Hous-
ing Project, the School of Music
and University Museum additions.
Pierpont pointed out that of
the money for physical, additions
or improvements to the Univer-
sity's physical plant only about
46 per cent comes from the state.
The rest comes from the federal
government and various gifts and
grants to the University.

Epher Plans Inquiry
On Conference Delay
Student Government Council President Russell Epker, '64BAd,
yesterday announced his intention "to investigate thoroughly the rea-
sons behind the postponement of the Conference on the University."
The investigation will include "personal and informal" talks
with students in charge of planning as well as with faculty and
administrative personnel "who had the interest but not the time for
the Conference."
To formulate his intentions, Epker may ask Council for a reso-
lution "to give me official support to go talk with faculty members

For Negroes
Collegiate Press Service
WASHINGTON - A five-point
program for improving the Negro's
position in higher education was
considered yesterday by a com-
mittee of the American Council
on Education.
Vice - President for Academic
Affairs Roger W. Heyns was
among 40 top American educators
who met and conferred with foun-
dation officials on expanding and
upgrading educational opportuni-
ties for Negroes.,
Once project lines are defined,
the University will participate in
them, Heyns said.
The two-day conference discuss-
ed programs that would include:
-Giving Negroes special or
preferential treatment to get them
in colleges. One midwestern uni-
versity has already set aside 25
scholarships for Negroes. Colleges
may be asked to help Negroes find
adequate housing and work to-
ward improving student and com-
munity acceptance of Negroes.
-Improving opportunities for
graduate study for faculty mem-
bers of predominantly Negro col-
leges. This would include giving
them travel funds, living expenses,
internships or fellowships to at-
tend "reputable graduate schools"
-mainly outside the South.
-Establishing faculty exchange
programs b e t w e e n integrated
northern universities and Negro
-Sending teams of top scholars
from integrated universities to
assess the quality and "raise the
educational sights" of Negro col-
-Improving mathematics a n d
science instruction in Negro col-
leges through summer programs,
faculty exchanges and introduc-
tion of new teaching materials.
One major specific project
would involve searching for talent-
ed Negro students. It would in-
clude contacting and identifying
such potential students, especially
in the South, using foundation-
financed special guidance and
counseling teams.
An ACE committee, headed by
Indiana University President El-
vis J. Stahr, Jr., will co-ordinate
various projects and relations with
foundations a n d the federal
The conference was called in re-
sponse to President John F. Ken-
nedy's drive to upgrade the Negro
in all aspects of American life. It
follows a White House conference
of educators on the Negro and

A study by th3 University ad-
ministration of the goals and effi-
ciency of student activities appar-
ently has' not materialized.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis and Regent
Alan R. Sorenson of Midland said
at a press conference after yester-
day's Regents meeting that these
questions had been discussed in
their private Thursday night ses-
sion in conjunction with the Un-
ion-League merger issue.
But the two men emphasized
that the general problem was only
a part of ongoing, day-to-day con-
sideration by administrators. "Our
conclusion was that we couldn't
make a general policy statement,"
Sorenson said.
Earlier this fall, Regent Irene
E. Murphy of Birmingham had
spoken of a two-pronged special
study which Lewis and Vice-Presi-
dent for Business and Finance

It was then said to be aimed at
determining whether some finan-

Joining of Union-League Activities
City Editor
Terming the concept of students participating in the man-
agerial and financial operations of a University Center as "in-
appropriate" and "ineffective," the Regents yesterday reject-
ed the organizing principles of the proposed merger of the
Michigan Union and Michigan League.
However, they did endorse a consolidation of the student
activities wings of the two organizations into a new board sep-
arate from the Union or League, and urged the immediate es-
tablishment of an implementation committee to work out the

The election of Mexico City as
the site for the 1968 Olympics left
the city of Detroit and the state
of Michigan with three questions
to answer.
Will Detroit try to get the right
to hold the Olympics again, what
will be the effect on the Michigan
economy of losing the 1968 games
and why did Detroit fail this time?
The answer to the first question
lies in the ability of the active"

Eastman Draws Method
Of Academic Decisions
Who really makes the policy decisions at the University?
In analyzing this question, it is best to regard the University as
a confederation, where the important academic questions are decided
in the individual schools and colleges, Prof. Arthur M. Eastman said
These units have a great deal of autonomy, determining their
own curricula, admissions standards and other basic academic
policies, he explained. This leaves
the upper administration with es
sentially three related functions:;.._..,'
-Co-ordinating decision ma
by the various units where such
co-ordination is needed;
-Reconciling these decisions
with the government and otherĀ«
outside forces and1
-Obtaining and dividing up fi-.
nances - the upper administra-
tion's most important source of
decision-making power.
Prof. Eastman said that the or-
ganizational chart of the Univer
sity, which implies that decisions,:
flow from the President down
through a pyramidal structure, is
deceptive because the authoity
