Legislature Leaves
'U' Budget Hanging
Postpone Adjournment Until May:
Session Stalls on Salaries, Outlays
LANSING (P)-Unable to come to terms on pay raises for them-
selves and on spending for higher education, lawmakers threw up thei
hands in disgust yesterday and hurried home for a long recess, leaving
the University's budget in mid-air.
They will meet again May 11 for a three-day mopping-up opera-
tion and final adjournment of the 1960 session.
By then, legislative leaders hope tempers will have simmered down
o permit peaceful settlement of issues still unresolved.
Left hanging in on angry turmoil that blocked Friday's scheduled
adjournment were important decisions on budgets, for state colleges
and universities, a construction program at state institutions, and

'U' Ex ects
$35 Million
For Budget,
The University is operating un-
der the assumption it will receive
a $35.2 million appropriation for
the operating budget, Vice-Presi-
dent and Dean of Faculties Marvin
L. Niehuss said yesterday.
There is no real difference be-
tween the bill passed by the House
and that passed by the Senate
with regard to the University's
appropriation, Niehuss said. The
only discrepancy is that the Sen-
ate voted funds for the combined
Astronomy - Physics - Institute of
Science and Technology as a sep-
arate fund, and the House voted
the funds along with the operat-
ing budget.
WiM Not Effect Tuition
Niehuss said the Legislature's
adjournment will have no effect
on the University's consideration
of tuition increases for the com-
ing academic year.
"The University's appropriation,
certainly will not be increased,
and probably will not be cut," Nie-
huss said. In my opinion, it will
stay as it is." ,
The first conference committee'
on the appropriation bills was dis-
missed Wednesday. If the second
committee is dismissed, the bills
are dead. As of now, the second
committee will continue to meet'
while the Legislature recesses un-
til May 11.
The first committee was dis-
missed when it cut all increases
in the higher education appropri-
ations bill and the House turned
the recommendation down.
No Recommendation
Niehuss said there had been no
definite recommendation made by
the Administration, as yet on
whether or not to raise student
fees. The University Regents will
discuss tuition boosts at their next
meeting Friday.
The original deadline for action
of the higher appropriation bill
was last Thursday, but was ex-
tended by both houses when no
action had been taken at that
MSU Board
To Determine
The Michigan State University
Board of Trustees is slated to de-
cide Thursday whether ROTC
should be compulsory or voluntary.
An eleventh-hour plea for the
continuation of compulsory ROTC
has been entered by some 70,000
members of the American Legion.
In a letter received by the six
MSU trustees, Martin B. Buckner,
the Michigan director of the na-
tional security commission, termed
ROTC a "wise and economical use
of our tax dollars," and predicted
that its discontinuation could be
"disastrous to our armed forces.
"Michigan State, with its large
ROTC unit, is a very desirable
target for those who would crip-
ple its program and thus weaken
our national defense posture,"
Buckner warned.
"Under the guise of academic
freedom and other liberal excuses,
pacifists and others would have
us do away with ROTC, a time-
tested source of qualified officers,"
be said.
The Board of Trustees post-
poned action without coming to
a vote when the question came up

two months ago.

Pay Raises Undecided
Pay raises for the 144 legislator
and the eight supreme court jus-
tices were left on the hook, alon
with a dozen lesser bills.

high $420,000,000 for state spend

A final vote on acceptance was
put off until next month.
"The Republican - controlled
Senate, in its great neanderthal
wisdom, has decided its against
something we're for," said Rep.
Joseph J. Kowalski, Democratic
floor leader from Detroit.
Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-Trav-
erse City), House Ways and Means
Committee chairman, explained
that budgeting increases for Mich-
igan Tech and Northern Michigan
College would be unfair for other
state colleges and universities.

- Hits Fraternities
special to The Daiy
Fraternities at Dartmouth have
been ordered to rid their national
rconstitutions of discriminatory
clauses by Sept. 1, 1960, or go
The order came as a result of
the Dartmouth College Trustees

Undergraduate Council's Discrim-

recommended that all fraternities
Sabolish discrimination.
An editor of the The Dartmouth,
campus newspaper, said last night
that action in this area has been
solely by students. It was initiated
by students, worked on by stu-
dents and the Trustees submitted
to our terms.
Effect Four
He said the order directly effects
only the four fraternities on cam-
pus, Delta Tau Delta, Phi Gamma
Delta, Sigma Chi and Sigma Nu,
whose nationals have a discrimi-
natory clause.
Phi Gamma Delta has a good
chance of changing the national
constitution and retaining its af-
filiation. In their last conference,
the move to remove the clause
lost by only one or two votes, he
Of the others only Delta Tau
Delta has ariy chance of not being
forced to go local.
Most Affiliated
Before the action was started
in 1950 on the discriminatory
clauses, 22 of the 24 chapters on
campus were nationally affiliated.
Now there are only 19, and in
September, if attempts to remove
clauses fail, there will be only 15.
In the beginning all but about
three or four of the fraternities
had discriminatory clauses.
The original resolution passed
in 1950 was not strong enough to
enforce their anti-discrimination
intentions. In 1954, a referendum
was held among the students to
determine what course of action
should be followed. Of the three
choices: continuing with the pres-
ent policies, submit the problem
to study, set a deadline asking
the Trustees to enforce it, the
students chose the later.
Two Letters
Under the program approved,
each fraternity must submit two
letters to the Committee. The let-
ter from the national, and the one
from the president of the local
chapter must state that the con-
stitution has no discriminatory
Chapters forced to become locals
can regain their national affilia-
tion when the discriminatory
clauses are revoked.
Under the 1954 resolution, all
discriminatory clauses were to be
dropped by April 1, 1960, but this
was extended to Sept. 1 to relieve
possible confusion and awkward-
ness caused by switching in the
middle of a semester.

To Back Demonstrators' Defense
Fourteen students and one University employee were
arrested yesterday by local police for distributing leaflets
while participating in demonstrations against the Cousins

Police Detective Duane Bauer said the demonstrators
may have violated one of the city ordinances forbidding the
public distribution or scattering of advertising matter. The
complaints were made by'

Realignment of Values Se,

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The Daily last
week published general student
trends in America as recorded in
the Goldsen survey. The following
summarizes the survey of the Uni-
versity campus.)
A realignment of values in con-
sidering an occupation is cited
by Rose K. Goldsen of the Soci-
ology department at Cornell Uni-
versity as part of a trend towards
conservatism on college campuses
While monetary success was
the traditional base of the Ameri-
can value system before the De-
pression, Prof. Goldsen notes that
after the early 1930's "a counter-
ideology became prominent: the
value of security."
Results of a poll conducted at
the University by Goldsen and
her associates have been published
in "What the College Student
Thinks," and show University
opinion to be consistent with an
apparent swing towards conserva-
tism in selecting an occupation.

those questioned stated that "toj
be able to look forward to a stablej
future" was their primary con-
sideration, only one in three were
mainly concerned with "making
a great deal of money."
Of minor importance to all but
a few was "a chance for adven-
ture." About frur out of ten men-
tioned "an opportunity to work
with people rather than things,"'
and a chance "to be helpful to
Two-thirds felt that an educa-
tion at the University does a good
job of equipping the student for
"life outside the campus"-about
one-fifth disagreed and 16 per'
cent were uncertain.
'U' Not Behind
Along with other large schools
questioned, such as UCLA and
Wayne, University student opinion
strongly disagreed with charges
that "colleges don't keep up with
the times."
Most students indicated that
they felt the University was doing
a good job of educating in values
as well as academics. Over two-
thirds agreed that a college edu-
cation does more to build up ideals
than break down values, while
close to half saw no need for
"placing more emphasis on teach-
ing American ideals and values."
Only one out of ten University
students said they were "disillus-
ioned about college life" and
slightly more felt that "too many
college teachers lack respect for
religious beliefs."

In the social sphere, Prof. Gold-
sen noted a development of the
fraternity concept characteristic
of "heterogeneous state campus-
es." Two out of every three fra-
ternity men at the University feel
that their house "has its own
personality, something over and
above the individual members in
'Sense of Exclusive,
This sense of "the house's sep-
arate identity" can be attributed
to a desire for a "sense of exclus-
ive" can be attributed to a desire
for a "sense of exclusive member-
ship, primary social interaction,"
and "the rituals and symbols of
A generally optimistic outlook
was indicated when well over half
of those questioned disagreed that
"there's little use in writing to
public officials" and that "every-
thing these days is a racket."
Optimism Tempered
On the other hand, this opti-
mism is tempered by a sense of,
sobriety-more than 90 per cent
rejected that old adage, "Since'
life is so short, we might as well
eat, drink, and be merry."
Although close to half of those
questioned claimed to be political
independents, Prof. Goldsen said
that independence does not actu-
ally indicate rejection of the tra-
ditional political parties, but thatJ

ping the handing out of handbills

Amendment.k .
Sixth Week of Picket
Local picketing first began six
weeks ago.
Last week the demonstrators
began to hand out leaflets. One
of the students, Jack Ladinsky,
Grad., said he and others were
told they were violating a city
ordinance, but continued to dis-
tribute the material.
James A. Lewis, University 'vice
presidentAin charge of student
affairs, said that the major con-
cern of the administration is that
such demonstrations should op-
erate under the law.
"But," he said, "if there is any
indication that the ordinance is
wrong, it should be tested, and
this is a good way."
Lewis, a member of the Human
Relations Commission, said he
was "concerned about anything
that stands in the way of equal
treatment to all students."
John Bingley, assistant dean of
men, said he did not have suf-
ficiant information to discuss the
arrests, but that with regard to
the picketing he, "goes along with
Student Government Council," re-
fering to SGC's recent decision to
support picketing of the Cousins
Shop, but not the demonstrations
against Kresge's and Woolworth's.

city ordinance adopted at a spe-
cial session of the City Council
Friday night. One of the signs
read "wear last Easter's bonnet."

Air Force Believes Capsule
Discoverer Still in Orbit
VANDENBURG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. W)-The capsule from
the Discoverer XI satellite is "probably still in orbit," the Air Force
announced last night.
A spokesman said that the recovery force waiting for the instru-
mented capsule to fall into the sea near Hawaii "never had a chance"
to snare it-because it didn't come down.
The Air Force said that it was the most successful test in the Dis-
coverer series to date. A spokesman said: "Some unknown malfunction

from the orbiting rocket which

"Telemetry data indicates that

Plans had called for the second
stage of the Discoverer to make
17 passes around the earth, then
pop out the 300-pound capsule on
radio orders, dropping it by para-
chute into Hawaiian waters.
The Air Force said that the
latest Discoverer was "exceptional
