To Retire

One of the University's bus-
iest officials, Vice-President for
Research and Dean of the
Graduate School Ralph A. Saw-
yer, will retire next June 30 at
the age of 69.
In his dual role, Sawyer is
guiding both the University's
graduate and research programs
through periods of phenomenal
growth. Since he became grad-
uate school dean in 1946, grad-
uate enrollment has doubled--
and University research has
expanded from $5 million a year
to more than $35 million.
Even as graduate school dean,
Sawyer was in charge of ad-
ministrating and coordinating
much of the University's re-
search. In 1959, by which time
University research totalled
well over $20 million a year,
the Regents created the re-
search vice - presidency and
named Sawyer to the new posie-
Seek Successor
The. search for his successor
-or successors-is already un-
derway, Executive Vice-Presi-
dent Marvin L. Niehuss said
Friday. The work is presently in
the "talking and discussion"
stage, Niehuss reported.
The first decision to be made
is whether to retain the dean-
ship and vice-presidency as a
one-man job or to split them.
Niehuss noted that the retire-
ment of a dean or top adminis-
trator is always followed by a
reconsideration of the organi-
zation of his post.
Pointing toward a decision to
divide the two positions is the
likelihood that they soon will
become utterly impossible for

one man to handle: research
alone, for example, may total
$100 million a year by 1970. On
the other hand, the close rela-
tionship of research and gradu-
ate education argues for retain,-
ing both functions under one
Heyns' Responsibility
Finding a new graduate dean
is the direct responsibility of
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Roger W. Heyns, since
this is an academic appoint-
ment. Traditionally this is done
through a faculty committee
formed for the purpose, and
this procedure twill be followed
in this care, Niehuss said.
In filling the vice-presidency,
the administration will consult
the faculty but may not form a
faculty committee, he added.

In accordance with Universi-
ty retirement policy, Sawyer
will go on retirement furlough
-relieved of his duties but still
receiving a salary-for one year
beginning June 30. Upon reach-
ing 69 years of age, officials
serve the rest of the term for
which they were appointed and
then must go on retirement
furlough, followed by actual re-
tirement at the end of the fur-
Here Since 1919
Sawyer first joined the Uni-
versity in 1919 as an instructor
in the physics department. He
was promoted to assistant pro-
fessor in 1922, associate profes-
sor in 1927 and professor in
Sawyer also directed the
Phoenix Memorial Project from
its inception in 1946 until his
vice - presidential appointment
in 1959.
At the same time, he has
been active in scientific work
outside the University. Most
notably, he was civilian techni-
cal director of the "Operation
Crossroads" atomic bomb tests
at Bikini Atoll in 1946.
During World War II he was
in charge of the Armor and
Projectile Laboratory at Dahl-
gren, Va. In 1943, he was made
experimental laboratories offi-
cer there andattained the rank
of commander. ,
His other activities include
leading the Advisory Council of
the Naval Proving Ground, the
Governing Board of the Ameri-
can Institute of Physics and the
Association of G r a d u a t e
Schools. He is a member of
numerous other scientific or-

Sees Rise
Of Crises
ORNO, Maine (AP) - President
John F. Kennedy said flatly yes-
terday that basic American-Soviet
differences "will give rise to
further crises, large and small."
But he said the quest for peace
must continue.
Kennedy, in a major foreign
policy address at the University
of Maine, hailed recent East-West
agreements as offering "new op-
portunities which we cannot af-
ford to miss."
Aims the Same
But he said that "no one of
these small advances, nor all of
them taken together, can be in-
terpreted as meaning that the
Soviets are abandoning their
basic aims and ambitions."
The President used these words
to summarize his attitude toward
dealings with the Communist
"While maintaining our readi-
:ness for war, let us exhaust every
avenue of peace. Let us always
make clear both our willingness
to talk, if talk will help, and our
readiness to fight, if fight w
Addresses Two Audiences
Kennedy's immediate audience
was a crowd of some 15,000 in the
university stadium. In a larger
sense, however, he was talking
both to the leaders of the Soviet
bloc and to the voters of America
who have heard sharp criticism
of East-West accords from Sen.
Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz).
Though Kennedy did not men-
tion the Arizona Republican who
may be his opponent in the 1964
election, he ticked off three agree-
ments opposed by Goldwater:
"It is in our national self-in-
terest to ban nuclear testing in the
atmosphere so thatall our citizens
can breathe easier. It is in our
national self-interest to sell sur-
plus wheat in storage to feed Rus-
sians and Eastern Europeans who
are willing to divert large portions
of their limited foreign exchange
reserves away from the implents
of war. It is in our national self-
interest to keep weapons of mass
destruction out of outer space."
We've Done Our Part
Kennedy said even a Soviet vio-
lation of the test ban treaty, or a
sudden refusal to buy American
wheat, would give "no reason to
regret the fact that this nation
had made every reasonable effort
to improve relations."
Without such an effort, he said,
"we could not maintain the lead-
ership and respect of the free
Kennedy noted that he spoke a
few days before the first anni-
versary of the Soviet-missiles-in-
Cuba crisis. 'He predicted new
crises after declaring the United
States and the Soviet Union
wholly differ "on so-called wars
of liberation and the use of sub-
version," saying:
Can't Conceal Them
"So long as these basic differ-
ences continue, they cannot and
should not be concealed; they set
limits to the possibilities of agree-
ment; and they will give rise to
further crises, large and small, in
the months and years ahead."
At another point, Kennedy said,
"there are new rays of hope on
the horizon-but we still live in
the shadow of war."

whole problem here this week with

"another six weeks before we get a
firmer picture" of what this year's

plores Idea of Veto


"Oct. 28 is the date of our
conventional picket of the Ad-
ministration Building," Charles
Thomas, Jr., chairman of the
Direct Action Committee, an-
nounced last night at DAC's rally
in West Park.
Thomas has said that the first
picket is to be conventional, as
opposed to a second picket which
he says will be held if DAC's de-
mands are not met after the first
picket. In the second picket,
Thomas says that DAC, will block-
ade the building's doors.
Also speaking at the rally was
Rufus Griffin of the Uhuru (Free-
dom) party of Detroit. Griffin
said that "Because of the existing
relationship between whites and
Negroes, integration is impossible."
"Basic fundamental changes in
the existing economic and political
setup are needed for integration
to be possible.
"The only logical solution to
the so-called 'Negro Problem' is
separation. If two million rela-
tively uneducated Africans can
form a nation of their own, then
20 million American Negroes,
whose educations range from
chemist and physicist to mop-
pusher, should be able to do it,"
said Griffin.
He also said, "Neither jobs nor
education is the problem, because
our very Negroeness is the fac-
tor that separates us.,
"The Negro doesn't even belong
in American society. He is a mem-
ber of a caste below the class sys-*
tem in America. The black man
cannot hope to get anywhere in

Power by Charter
The United Nations Charter em-
powers the Security Council to
authorize such operations. The
Assembly's 1950 "Uniting for
Peace" resolutions empowers the
Assembly to authorize them, too,
whenever a veto thwarts a ma-
jority in favor of such action in
the council. But the assembly
alone has raised the money for
all major peacekeeping operations.
The charter says that expenses
of the United Nations "shall be
borne by the members as appor-
tioned by the General Assembly,"
and the International Court has
held that this includes costs of
the Congo and Middle East forces
as well as regularly budgeted
United Nations spending.
Since these forces were formed,
the assembly has authorized the
Secretary-General to spend fixed
sums to keep them going and has
assessed these sums among all
United Nations members by per-
centages roughly in line with their
ability to pay. It has done this
through resolutions adopted by
two-thirds vote.

some arrangement should be work-

Here's One Idea
The informant did not suggest
any scheme to make this possible.
But Britain came up with one
last 'spring in a United Nations
working group that studied the
problem of financing peacekeep-
ing forces.
Britain's argument was that, if
the cost of a peacekeeping opera-
tion rose, above a certain level,
"those relatively few states on
whom most of the costs would fall
could justly expect a greater say
in the methods of financing to be
