Iniana Ends

Il Dual Swim Meet Streak, 58-4


















--Daily-Dave Giltrow
FREESTYLE-The Wolverines' Frank Legacki (swimmer at left) wins the 100-yard freestyle in the
Michigan Varsity Pool yesterday. Pete Sintz of Indiana (swimmer in top lane) came in second, while
Carl Woolley of Michigan (lowest lane), came up strongly to take third. Legacki edged Sintz with a
winning time of :49.6. The Hoosiers, however, wonthe match, 58-47.
M' Loses First out of Meets

Michigan's four-year and 33
consecutive dual swim meet streak
came to an end yesterday as an
aroused Indiana team put on a,
strong finish to defeat the Wol-
verines, 58-47, before an overflow
crowd of 3,000 at Varsity Pool.
The Wolverines had last lost
Feb. 25, 1956 when they were
beaten by Ohio State, also 58-47.
The meet, billed as the most ex-
citing one in a decade, kept the
highly partisan crowd on the edge
of their seats until the issue was
finally decided in the last event,
when Indiana's 400-yard freestyle
relay team defeated the Wolver-
ines by two feet and the Michigan
streak was ended.
Although it was primarily a
team battle from wire to wire the
Nine Petition
For Council
Two more students, Constance
Kreger, '60, and Brereton Bissell,
'61, have taken out petitions for
the March elections for Student
Government Council seats.
This brings the total of peti-
tioners for the six available seats
to nine. Each candidate for SGC
must attend one of the scheduled
candidate orientation sessions at
4:00 p.m. Tuesday or 7:00 p.m.'
Two students, John Bloodgood,
'61, and Robert Morse, '61E, have
taken out petitions as candidates
for the three open Union Student
Director positions.
In the senior class officer elec-
tions, six more petitions have been
issued to: Bill Warnock and Har-
ley Kripke for president and vice-
president in the business adminis-
tration school, respectively; Mi-
chael Gillman and George Drasin
as president and vice-president in
the literary college, respectively;
and Richard Staelin and Duane
Wasmoth for vice-president and
secretary-treasurer in the engi-
neering school, respectively.
Any candidates in other elec-
tions than SGC who have ques-
tions about their election rules or
other matters should attend the
candidate orientation session at
4:00 on Tuesday.

individual performances will be
long remembered by fans and:
swimming record books alike.
The most sensational of these
efforts was turned in by Indiana's
Mike Troy, who became the first
man in history to swim the 200-
yard butterfly in less than two
His clocking of 1:59.1 estab-
lished new American, NCAA, and
Pool standards and broke his pre-
vious mark of 2:00.8 set Feb. 8.
Troy Helps Another Record
Troy also had a hand in anoth-
er record when he combined with
Frank McKinney, Gerry Miki and
Pete Sintz to cover the 400-yard
medley relay course in 3:41.2.
This quartet lowered their own
mark of 3:41.9 in setting the new
The only other record set was
by Michgian's Fred Wolf, who
bettered the American and pool
standards in the 200-yard indi-
vidual medley.
Wolf Sets Mark
Wolf's time of 2:06.8 eclipsed
the previous American mark of,
2:07.5 held by Al Wiggins of Ohio
State, but fell three-tenths short
of the pending mark turned in by
Michigan Captain Tony Tashnick
last March.
Michigan had a four point lead
after the first five events and
coach Gus Stager later admitted
that he thought his team would
win, but he didn't count on the

sensational performances of the
Hoosiers or the rather disappoint-
ing work of his own squad in the
ensuing races.

YR's Meet,
Ask Change
Special to The Daily
JACKSON--Yesterday the Young
Republicans passed a resolution to
delete the <disclaimer affidavit
clause from the National Defense
Education Act.
At the YR state convention held
here this weekend, Rep. Alvin
Bentley (R-Mich.) pointed out!
that Congress will soon be faced
with the problem of whether or
not that clause should be re-
"The President, I know, is sym-
pathetic with those who believe
it discriminates against students.
I too tend to think it should be
changed, although I am not yet
prepared to make any definite
Asks Opinions
"In view of the nature of this
group, I would be very much in-
terested In having some of you
express your opinions on this ques-
tion," he continued.
Many took advantage of this
opportunity. One young man, after
explaining that he was a member
of an organization working to keep
the Disclaimer Affidavit in the
NDEA, reported "Of all the various
civic groups I have spoken to,
only one is in favor of changing
the act."
Another stated dramatically, "I
signed it. I'm not ashamed that
I'm a true American."
The NDEA contains two parts:
the loyalty oath and the disclaim-
er affidavit. From the first the
loyalty oath was supported at the
Young Republican's convention.
Anyone who accepts a loan from
the government, they asserted,
should at least agree to pledge
their loyalty in return.
Give Reasons
In debate, however, members
gave four reasons for opposing the
disclaimer affidavit.
First, it is discriminatory against
students because no other group
receiving federal aid is required to
sign such a statement.
Second, they said, although its
purpose is to prosecute subversive
ideas, it is difficult to actually find
substantial proof for intangible
Third, it is a violation of the
freedom of thought and belief.
Finally, the wording of the act
is somewhat vague and difficult
to interpret, debaters decided.

Panel Asks Political Changes

Members of a blue-ribbon panel
assembled by Citizens for Michi-
gan yesterday called for changes
which would, in aggregate,
amount to a wholesale reorgani-
zation of the state.
Proposed were: administrative
and judicial reorganization, a pos-
sible method of reforming the
state's basis of representation, an-
swers to the tax problem includ-
ing a way to "beat" the business
cycle, and some new areas of need
for state services.
Kicking off the discussion,
called for a state-wide meeting of
CFM chapter leaders, in the Un-
ion, Prof. Daniel MacHargue of
the political science department
called the executive branch of the
state government "extremely dis-
"Over the years, the legislature
has been singularly unconcerned
with making the job of the chief
executive easy," though the 1958
law permitting the governor to
propose reorganization was a
"progressive step."
Should Be Consolidated
The present 123 government
agencies should be consolidated
into about 15 or 20 departments,
since at present it is impossible
for the governor to manage prop-
Prof. Joseph S. Wodka of Cen-
tral Michigan University said the
constitution prevents a "balanced
legislature," (the federal govern-
ment system) since the greater
house is not truly based on pop-

proposed a four-point program:

Should Fulfill
If the theory of the balanced
legislature is accepted it should
be fulfilled equitably, a non-parti-
san matter, Prof. Wodka said.
Prof. Harvey E. Brazer of the
economics department said the
principle obstacle to tax reform
is lack of knowledge by citizens
and legislators.
The Citizens Advisory Commit-
tee to the Michigan Tax Study
recommended "gross overhaul" of
the business tax structure and
said present individual tax sched-
ules are both regressive and dis-
criminatory, Prof. Brazer contin-
It is the structure of business
taxes though, not the level, that
is particularly critical.
"One cannot expect favorable
reactions from business in a state
if the people say business ought
to be the butt of major taxes."
The recent "nuisance tax"
package could "not have been bet-
ter designed to make these situ-
ations worse if the legislature had
tried to do so."
Goes Against Grain
The state's present tax struc-
ture "goes against the grain of
rational thinking for a modern
tax structure to sustain the $1.6
billion spent on state services," he
Gordon Knapp, vice-president
of Upjohn Co. suggested the state
could avoid revenue fluctuations
due to the business cycle by build-
ing up a surplus during good
times to carry the treasury
through declines.
When a cyclic business declines,
a special ill of the automobile in-
dustry, sets in, state expenses
should be kept as low as feasible,
though "it is almost impossible to
cut the budget without cutting
services," and new projects should
be curtailed.
Should Balance Budget
In the first year after the de-
cline is over, the budget should
be balanced. Tax boosts should be
passed if necessary.
"The state in a sense has over-
concentrated in durable goods,"
necessitating steps to "improve
the base and flexibility of the
economic system so storms can

be weathered," United Autowork-
ers' Union research d i r e t o r
Woodward Ginsburg agreed.
An income tax would help over-
come these effects because of its
flexibility, and "will help get rid
of the recurring deficits the state
is likely to have if it keep the
present inflexible system."
Ginsburg also stressed need for
state action in upgrading skills of
state workers.
Paul H. Wileden, deputy direc-
tor of the state budget division,
reviewed present state budgets
and income, stressing great pro-
portions of tax money is returned
to local areas.

Coming from as far as Menomi-

New Cafeteria Seating 260 To Open Tomorrow

The League's eight-month renovation project is completed,
including a new first-floor cafeteria seating 260, Miss Wilma Steketee,
League business manager, announced recently.
An open house marking the program's completion will be held
from 1 to 5 this afternoon. Coeds will conduct visitors on tours of
the building.
The project cost a total of $885,000, which was taken from funds
set aside for modernization from operating revenues each year.
Decoration Colorful
The new cafeteria, first among the projects just finished, is deco-
rated in turquoise, gold and white, and separated from the serving
area by white wrought-iron screening.
A warm atmosphere 'is provided by individual lighting at each
table from recessed fixtures installed in the ceiling.
The first floor kitchen also was remodeled; it was enlarged and
new walls, floors and equipment were installed.
