In Rights Proposal
By PHILIP SUTIN
National Concerns Editor
In the midst of constant heckling, Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett
last night warned that civil rights proposals are a "new form of
tyranny" which will "surely add the finishing blow to the foundation
stone upon which our constitution, our laws and society firmly rest."
Michigan Union and University officials three times had to in-
terrupt Barnett's talk in a packed Hill Aud. as the jeering became
too loud for Barnett to be heard.
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns warned
that "if the meeting becomes disruptive we will have to remove
people from the audience."
'Matter of Manners'
He said that he regarded an orderly hearing of Barnett's speech
as "a matter of manners." The bulk of the audience applauded

Three proposals a i m e d at
achieving more faculty participa-
tion in University policy-making
were approved yesterday by the
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs.
At its monthly meeting, the
faculty group also rejected a fac-
ulty member's suggestion that any
expansion of the Dearborn Cen-
ter be halted until that city takes
steps to eliminate racial discrim-
ination.
The three proposals, submitted
by SACUA's subcommittee on
University Freedom and Respon-
sibility, provided for:
-Consultation with SACUA
when facultytmembers are being
appointed to any University-wide
committee;
-Submission by SACUA, when
that body considered it approp-
riate, of a list of faculty names
from which a committee would be
chosen, and
-The designation of one mem-
ber of such committees as a liai-
son man, to keep SACUA inform-
ed on the committee's work.
Recommend Approval
This resolution "will be sub-
mitted to the University Senate
Dec. 9 with the recommendation
that it be approved," Prof. Wil-
liam Kerr, chairman of the nuc-
lear engineering department and
of SACUA, said last night.
The Dearborn discrimination
issue was first raised in a letter
to SACUA from Prof. Ernest F.
Masur of the engineering college.
Prof. Masur explained last night
that his'letter was provoked by
press accounts of the recent ran-
sacking of a Dearborn apartment
Try To End
Border Fight
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (_)-
Independent Africa's foreign min-
isters named a seven-nation com-
mittee yesterday to adjudicate the
Sahara border dispute between
Algeria and Morocco and called
on both countries to bow to its
verdict.
Algerian Foreign Minister Ab-
dellaziz Bouteflika and Ahmed
Reda Guedira of Morocco shook
hands in the glare of television
lights and pledged to respect the
continent's quest for brotherhood
and unity.
But spokesman indicated the
two countries will be willing to
accept decisions of the committee
as binding only if they correspond
to their own interests, making it
appear doubtful that the com-
mittee will be able to solve the
dispute.
A final resolution adopted at
the end of a 32-nation council of
foreign ministers of the Organiza-
tion of African Unity called on
the two North African nations to
live up to the African charter
signed here six months ago. The
resolution particularly mentioned
parts dealing with territorial in-
tegrity of Africa's new states and
non-interference in their internal
affairs.

by a mob. The riot, "condoned by
police," took place because of
rumors that a Negro was going to
rent there, he said.
"When I read of this I wrote
to SACUA, asking if this is the
proper place for the University to
have an expanding program,"
Prof. Masur said.
Sent to Committee
SACUA last month referred the
letter to its educational policies

subcommittee, which discussed the
issue with Prof. Masur and re-
turned the letter to SACUA with-
out recommendation.
Prof. Kerr said the policies ad-
vocated by Prof. Masur were not
approved yesterday because "any
overt stand or confrontation
would slow down the process of
eliminating discrimination rather
than speed it up."
Professors Masur and Kerr both

pointed out that no charges of
discrimination by the University
were involved.
In other action, SACUA receiv-
ed a report from its major medi-
cal insurance subcommittee, ask-
ing that the Teachers' Insurance
and Annuity Association health-
insurance plan be extended, rais-
ing the limit of payments to
$25,000 a n d covering retired
employes.

Close Vote Supports
'General Principle'
Members Raise Many.Questions,
May Name Group To Seek Answers
By KENNETH WINTER
By a narrow margin, the literary college faculty yester-
day approved the concept of a residential college-but it
wants several questions answered before endorsing any specif-
ic plan.
"What has been approved is the general principle. At its
next meeting the faculty will be asked to take the necessary
steps to explore these problems," Dean William Haber of the
literary college explained.
He said these steps would involve setting up a special com-
mittee to seek answers to the questions raised at yesterday's
two-hour meeting. Then, upon receiving the special commit-
tee's report, the faculty would"
make its final decision, ac-
cepting or rejecting a specific To Propose
plan for the proposed new lit-
erary college unit.
Dean Haber emphasized that NO lnaions

tion of how the majority of the

AID Assistance Plan
WASHINGTON-The Association of State Universities and
Land-Grant Colleges last week rejected a proposal by the Agency for
International Development that United States universities contract
directly with Latin American governments for technical assistance.
Also in the proposal by AID was that this aid would be financed
from development loan funds made available by the Alliance for
"Progress. The international affairs
committee of the association had

" Heyn's and others' appeals for
order.
However, heckling by members
of the Direct Action Committee
and others continued to interrupt
and sometimes drown out Bar-'
nett's speech. Jack Warren, '66,
of the Union Special Projects
Committee, twice sought quiet
after Heyns had spoken.
No one was removed from the
session. Union President Raymond
Rusnak, '64, explained that police
officials considered that there
would be less trouble if no police
action was taken.
Freedom Section
The University Friends of the
Student Non-Violent Coordinating
Committee sponsored a "freedom
section" in the first balcony. "We
will make no attempt to interfere
with Barnett's speech in any way,"
they promised. The group sang
"We Shall Overcome," the anthem
of the civil rights movement, after
the lecture.
"Stripped to its essense, the pro-
posed civil rights law advocated by
extreme liberal groups seeks to
use the policeman's club and the
armed might of the federal gov-
ernment to force certain people
into the society of others who do
not want them and to whom their
presence is repugnant.
"The fact that this illegal
scheme cannot work does not deter
its proponents in the least," Bar-
nett warned.

Goals Need
Reworking
WASHINGTON - "We h a v e
committed ourselves deeply to in-
ternational education but are
troubled by a confusion of pur-
poses," Frank Bowles, president.of
the College Entrance Examination
Board said recently.
Speaking on "American Respon-
sibilities in International Educa-
tion" at the annual meeting of
the American Council on Educa-
tion, Bowles stated that Ameri-
can education had to clarify its
purposes regarding this commit-
ment.
Numerous Commitments
Bowles charged that American
education has numerous commit-
ments which it is trying to meet
through one set of methods.
Those commitments include
opening American education to
foreign students, opening to Ame-
rican students the possibility of
foreign study, and aiding social
and economic development
through education in Latin Ame-
rica and in certain nations which
were once European colonies.
Observation
Bowles made the following ob-
servations about these commit-
ments:
"We have been shifting our em-
phasis away from student move-
ments and towards support of en-
tire educational systems;
"We have not stated whether
our efforts at improving educa-
tional systems in underdeveloped
nations are to be through intro-
ducing aspects of the American
system or through strengthening
the existing systems; and
"We do not have enough Ame-
ricans with experience in differ-
ent systems of education to staff
our commitments."

a proper general pattern for uni-
versities to follow."
The association did, however,
approve trying a second AID pro-
posal which, while not shifting
the contracting responsibility from
AID to universities, did include
changing the present grant-fi-
nancing requirements to loan-
financing.
The overall AID program was
also the concern of AID adminis-
trator David E. Bell. He recently
called for a "searching reapprai-
sal" of AID-university relation-
ships.
Bell's comments included the
following issues:
1) "What can be done to en-
sure that the universities involved
in AID programs are strengthened
in their essential tasks of teach-
ing, research and service?" Fed-
eral programs must add to the
capability of American universi-
ties to participate in technical
assistance to Latin American col-
leges;
2) "How far can we move in
the direction of bringing the uni-
versities into AID programs at
earlier stages and for more am-
bitious assignments?" AID should
enlist the talents of universities
in the diagnosis of problems as
well as in the actual programs,

ANTI-SEMITISM:
Prelates Hit
Declaration
VATICAN CITY ()-A Vatican
Ecumenical Council declaration
aimed at anti-Semitism was as-
sailed yesterday by a conservative
Italian Cardinal and three Cath-
olic patriarchs from the Middle
East.
The prelates said they were
afraid the document could mean
misunderstanding and difficulties
for Christians in the Arab world.
The opposition raised the pos-
sibility that the proposal-now a
separate chapter in the topic on
Christian unity-might be cut out
of the document and treated in
some other way.
The chapter declares that all
mankind-not Jews alone-shares
responsibility for the death of
Christ. The world's Jewish leaders
have praised the declaration.

Barnett Cla ims
Section of Bill
Violates Law
By MICHAEL HARRAH
Mississippi Gov. Ross Barnett
yesterday pinpointed his opposi-
tion to the proposed federal civil
rights legislation in an informal
talk before the Lawyer's Club.
He stressed his major opposi-
tion to the public accommoda-
tions section of the bill, calling it
"wholly unconstitutional," and
asserting that "when a business
is owned and operated by a pri-
vate individual, he has the right
to choose his customers."
Supporting Evidence
He cited the Nichols case in
1883 and the more recent deci-
sion in Williams vs. Howard John-
son's Motels in 1959 as supporting
this point of view. In both cases
it was determined that the busi-
ness concerned was not one en-
gaged in interstate commerce and
as such could not be considered
governed by the commerce clause
in the federal Constitution.
"With these two decisions out-
standing, unreversed and unqual-
ified in the slightest. I don't see
how there can be any justifica-
tion for (overturning) them.'

the floor the governor remarked

UN RESOLUTION:
U.S. Rejects Demands
Made by Cubans on Zone
UNITED NATIONS (YP)-The United States rejected yesterday)
Cuba's demand that the Guantanamo naval base be given up as the
price for establishing a nuclear-free zone in Latin America.
Charles C. Stelle, United States disarmament negotoiator, also
told the General Assembly's main political committee that the United
States would vote against a resolution seeking an international con-
*ference for drawing up a treaty)
outlawing use of nuclear weapons.
Cuban Ambassador Carlos M.
Lechuga declared that before his
country would agree to any pro-
etposal to ban nuclear weapons from
Latin America the United States
would also have to agree to put
Puerto Rico and the Panama
{"=:<' ' Canal in the proposed zone.
He added also that the United
States would have to abandon its
big naval installation at Guan-
tanamo, which he described as a
base for being used by United
States intelligence agents for
"sabotage and murder" in Cuba.
Cuba's stand appeared to weak-
en considerably any effectiveness
for a resolution sponsored by 10
Latin American nations asking for
studies on how to establish a nu-
clear-free zone.

Far from Unanimous
Several faculty members com-
mented after the meeting that the
approximately 275 members pres-
ent were "far from unanimous"
even on the general principle of
the proposed college.
The residential college, as pro-
posed by a faculty committee last
spring, would involve housing from
1-3000 literary college students in
a residence hall or group of living
units. Here would be located not
only living and dining facilities
but classrooms, laboratories, a li-
brary and possibly faculty offices
-attempting to create a small-
college atmosphere within the
University.
In addition, the committee pro-
posed a revised curriculum and
other educational innovations.
Eight Questions
In considering this proposal,
Dean Haber said, faculty members
at yesterday's meeting raised eight
major questions:
-Would the residential college
drain financial support away from
the rest of the literary college?
The residential college would
only teach its own students, all of
them enrolled in the literary col-
lege. But many students taking
literary college classes are enrolled
in other University schools and
colleges. Would the residential col-
lege, then, throw a disproportion-
ate share of this "service teach-
ing" on the rest of the literary
college?
Full-Fledged?
-Would faculty teaching in the
residential college be full-fledged
members of the literary college
faculty?
-Administratively, would the
residential college be an integral
part of the literary college, or au-
tonomous?
-As a relatively small college,
the residential college would be
unable to offer many of the spe-
cialized courses taken by upper-
classmen. Would it, then, place a
burden on specialized courses
taught only in the regular literary
college?
-Should the residential college
be an honors college, or enroll
roughly a cross-section of the lit-
erary college student body?
-Should it be located in the
Central Campus area, on North
Campus, or somewhere else?
-What alternatives are there to
the residential college as now pro-
posed?
Parliamentary Action
Yesterday's vote followed the
submission and revision of two
motions concerning the new col-
lege. Almost two months ago,
when the faculty first discussed
the college, Prof. Theodore M.
Newcomb of the psychology and
sociology departments had offered
a motion endorsing the college and
establishing anrimplementation
committee to work out the de-
tails.
During the debate at yesterday's

. ann ar or s uman x li
Commission is expected this week
to present Mayor Cecil 0. Creal
with the names of nominees to fill
three vacancies on the commis-
sion.
Paul C. Wagner, HRC chairman,
said yesterday that the names of
the three individuals will be re-
leased next Monday when the
mayor is expected to put the mat-
ter before City Council's working
session.
Reliable city hall sources indi-
cate that at least two of the nom-
inees are Negroes.
Present Activities
Wagner also commented on
present activities of the HRC. The
commission has sent out requests
for statements from local civil
rights groups as to the type of ac-
tion they believe should be taken
in the civil rights area.
The most recent communication
which was presented before coun-
cil last night was that of the
Catholic International Program,
outlining its goals, methods and
proposal toward better race rela-
tions.
James F. Montgomery, head of
the program, stated in a letter
that international students who
attend the University encounter
discrimination in housing and em-
ployment.
Responsibilities
He proposes that action be taken
to encourage landlords to accept
their civic responsibilities and co-
operate with international pro-
grams.
Landlords argue that they turn
international students away, not
because of "color," but because
they have no understanding of
"how to take care of an apart-
ment," Montgomery asserts.
Montgomery pointed out that
these landlords have a "civic re-
sponsibility to teach our guests
from other countries."
In the area of employment,
Montgomery proposes that meet-
ings with local businessmen be
held to encourage employment for
international students.
He also suggests that business-
men consider setting aside a defi-
nite percentage of their part-time
work force for men and women
from other countries.
Bandit Pilfers
Student Funds
From Office
An unarmed bandit escaped
with $6,290 of student loan funds
taken from the cashier's office in
the SAB shortly before noon yes-
terday.
Richard Koester, employee in
the cashier's office, gave chase
when he noticed the bandit taking
money from behind the cashier's
counter.

There should be a new dimen-
sion in the medical doctor's edu-
cation which includes all that
happens between the doctor and
his patient, Dr. Lester J. Evans
said yesterday in the third Cook
lecture.
Dr. Evans described this dimen-
sion as a "fundamental condition-
ing" in the medical student's ed-
ucation which would take a con-
siderable length of time to
achieve. But in the end it would
add the human aspects which
medicine often lacks.
It would require departmental
understanding, he noted, but it

or deals with people," Dr. Evans
added.
He said that there is no way to
measure achievement in the new
dimension. The "only true meas-
ure of accomplishment will be in
the heart and mind of the stu-
dent who discovers that the
human being with all his varia-
tions is the most exciting subject
of study in his education for
medicine."
Duty To Society
Dr. Evans emphasized that a
doctor must hold his duty to so-
ciety above all personal feelings.
He said that what the medical
man does "always transcends

Dr. Evans also noted that study
could be done in the procedure
for admission to medical schools.
There are many questions that can
be asked, he said, since "college
holds the key to what happens
during and after college life." The
study in the emotional and social
growth should be equal to that
which is now going on in intel-
lectual growth.
The factors which influence the
medical choice is another thing
that should be analyzed, Dr. Evans
added.
Finally, there should be a look
into the entire post-medical de-
