Legislature To Cut Williams' Plan;
'U' Faculty Salary Hike in Doubt
State spending for higher education, including capital outlay, will
meet only very basic needs, Sen. Elmer R. Porter (R-Blissfield), Chair-
man of the Senate Appropriations Committee, said yesterday.
However, Michigan schools will receive more than last year, he


predicted, although the appropriations may be far less than sought.
"We gave schools fun(is for a nine per cent salary increase last
year because civil service hikes were similar. However that is not the
case this year and I doubt if the Senate will allot as much for salary
increases as the institutions want," Porter said. The House could still
propose an increase in the Uni-
Set versity's budget, but the Senate
would haveto approve any such
iligha measure before it became law.,

spectacular team performance by

Co-Existence Proven Valid at Universtty

Pacifists and military men co-existed to music last night at
opposite ends of the campus.
While 500 ROTC-minded couples waltzed in the Union Ballroom,
a smaller number of "peace-makers" were prancing at the University's
first "anti-military ball," held in the Hussey Room of the League.
The idea for the informal dance, designed to spoof the annual
uniformed ball the three military units sponsor, came from a similar
event staged at the University of Wisconsin.
Same Night
"The Young Friends decided to hold the affair two weeks ago
and planned for the same night as the military ball," David Giltrow,
'61Ed.; event chairman reported.
The proceeds from the dance ("one dollar admission charge for
peace-makers, two for warmongers") will go to support the work of
the American Friends Service Committees, and pay for the cost of
the room.
"Music is free," Giltrow said. "An unorganized group of musicians
walked in at 9 p.m. and volunteered to play for us." At 11 p.m. the
four-man unit was still motivating a constantly enlarging crowd of
