Calls GOP True 'Liberals'

Republicans, rather than Demo-
crats are the true "liberals," Rep.
Robert Goffin (R-Mich.) asserted
last night.
"Often times . . . the term 'lib-
eral' is applied to those in the
other party who continually beat
the drums for massive deficit
spending as the cure for every ill.
This common distortion in seman-
tics has always irked me greatly,"
the Traverse City Congressman
said at a Lincoln Day Dinner in
the League Ballroom.
The emphasis of true liberals
like Voltaire and Samuel Adams
is individual liberty. And Jeffer-
son, for instance, "was greatly
concerned regarding the dangers
rof Federal deficit financing."
. .. It is reasonable and ap-
propriate to ask . .. Which party
is 'liberal' in the truest sense of
the word."
"In the last session of Congress,
the true colors of the modern-day
pseudo - liberals showed through
for all to see in the dramatic
struggle, against overwhelming
odds in the Congress, to enact
effective and meaningful labor re-'
form legislation.
"Now, considering the nature of
the Bill of Rights for union mem-
bers (in the Landrum-Griffin bill)
- wouldn't it be reasonable to
assume real liberals would not
only support it, but work hard for
Its passage?
"But where the so-called 'lib-
erals' on the vote in the Senate
to adopt the Bill of Rights amend-
llsment ... ?
Opposed Bill
"Over the vigorous opposition,
and to the surprise, of the 'pseudo-
liberals' who profess to be friends
of the working man," the amend-
ment was passed.
The Republicans are also better
prepared to face the challenge of
labor-management relations in the
new decade, Griffin said.
"It will take a party of re-
sponsibility and principles which
is not controlled by special in-
terest groups, to face up to the
difficult problems still confront-
ing us in the labor-management
"Not only is the Democratic'
party controlled by special in-
terests, but too many of its mem-
bers persist in viewing the future
through a rear-view mirror which
reflects only the depression phi-
losophy of the 193's.
"In this field, they seem deter-
mined to spend all of their time
squabbling over how the cake is
sliced instead of helping to bake
a bigger cake..
Move With Times
"Republicans, on the other
hand, believe we must move with
the times and not live in the past."
The GOP is also a party of
"unity of fundamental purpose and
direction," Griffin continued.
"Surely a party that is hopelessly
divided against itself cannot qual-
ify to guide the rest of us through
the turbulent waters ahead.
"The field of civil rights is only
one example of the deep cleavage
and fundamental division which
characterizes the schizophrenic
condition of the Democratic party.
- Party of Principle
"Not only is unity desirable, but
*.a . if a party is to be more than
just a conspiracy to grab political
power, it must be a party of prin-
ciple." The Democrats do not fill
the bill - they are a party of
"expediency, rather than prin-
-Griffin said voters in November
will decide which party is better
equipped, in terms of principles,
to carry the nation "into the un-
certain future and keep precious
freedoms intact."
"If we, as Republicans do our
job in the months ahead, there
can be no question but that in
November the American people
will clearly reflect that the answer
lies in the Republican party., . .

GrifinPredicts Legislation
On Mininiuin Wage Levels
Though further minimum wage legislation may be enacted this
year, the outlook for other labor reforms is dim, Rep. Robert Griffin
(R-Mich.) said yesterday.
A boost in the minimum wage to $1.10 or $1.15 will "perhaps" be
passed this year, a compromise from the $1.25 figure proposed by the
The cost of living has gone up since the last wage law so con-
ditions seem to warrant the boost.
Need Restrictions

Attorney Henry T. Conlin of
Ann Arbor said yesterday he's not
sure what his next move will be
in his defense of individuals
charged with homosexual acts.
Conlin's motion that the cases
of two men charged with "at-
tempting to procure an act of
gross indecency between males"
be dismissed was denied Thursday
by Circuit Judge James R. Break-
ey, Jr.
"We're presently examining the
refusal, and may come up with
something new by the middle of
next week," Conlin said.
Trial Set
Judge Breakey meanwhile set
Mar. 14 as the trial date for the
first of 30 persons charged with
homosexual activities, including
several students and a faculty
member. Most were arrested dur-
ing a two-month police crack-
down throughout the city.
In his dismissal ruling, Judge
Breakey said the state laws re-
garding "gross indecency" were
both constitutional and clear
enough to justify trial of indi-
viduals on the charge.
Conlin had attacked the con-
stitutionality of arresting and
charging individuals with the
"ambiguous crime of gross in-
Both Require
"Both the state and federal
constitutions require that a crimi-
nal statute be sufficiently explicit
to inform those who are subject
to it whatconduct on their part
will render them liable to its
penalties," he said.
He also charged "an entrap-
ment situation" was involved in
the arrest procedures, because
police officers on duty took writ-
ten propositions from some in-
dividuals, passed them on to
others, then a-rested all of those
involved on "gross indecency"
charges with which they were
eventually prosecuted.
"This statute has been on the
books for 5' years," the judge ar-
gued. "Although this in itself does
not render the statute constitu-
tional, it has been tested in many
cases before the State Supreme
Court and it has been used enough
by the courts of Michigan to be-
come well identified in the scope
of its use and is sufficiently ex-
plicit to cover an offense under
the law of the state."
No Evidence
He added there was no evidence
in testimony at the preliminary
hearing that "entrapment" was
employed by officers.
"The testimony shows that the
first move was made by the de-
fendants. The court hesitates to
spread on the record the words
used in the transcript, but the
defendant's tapping their feet

Tech Rally
Special to The Daily
HOUGHTON - An out-skated
Michigan team fell before a last-
period outburst of Michigan Tech
goals last night, 6-1.
The disorganized W o l v e r in e
icers managed to keep the doors
shut on the hard-skating Huskies,
largely through the efforts of
;goalie Jim Coyle for two full
periods, but Tech exploded in the
third frame for all six of its goals.
Michigan was completely over-
whelmed as the first of the Husky
marksmen found the range after
1:08 of the last period, and the
scoring wasn't completed until
Dave Cowan beat Coyle in close
for the last marker with only
fourteen seconds left in the game.
Large Crowd
A total of 2,100 fans, the larg-
est crowd of the season here at
Tech, roared their approval
through the scoring splurge as
Tech's touted "Production Line"!
of Paul Coppo, John' Kosiancic
and Gerald Fabbro turned on the
power. The Wolverines had hand-
cuffed this trio on their visit to
Ann Arbor, not allowing them a
goal, but they came through last
night as they were in on three of
the first four Tech tallies.
Despite the loss of Henry Aker-
vall, the leading Tech defense-
man, due to injuries suffered in
Tech's series at MSU last week,
the northerners' defense was out-
standing as Michigan was held to
its lowest goal production of the
The host team started out the,
game with constant pressure on
the Wolverine net and it took a
fine Job by Coyle (and a little of
his Irish luck on two shots hit-
ting the post) to keep the Huskies
Defense Effective
The Tech defense was so effec-
tive that it wasn't until seven and
a half minutes had gone by that
Michigan even got a shot on net,
and the clock showed 8:16 before
Husky goalie George Cuculick was
forced to make a hardsave.
The second period provided

Unions have now achieved their
two basic goals so they should
shift their emphasis in coopera-
tion with industry and govern-
ment, Griffin declared.
Having achieved organizational
security against "union busting"
and having raised the standard of
living considerably among work-
ers. they should turn to taking a
part in upgrading the skills of
ordinary workers.
The day of the unskilled laborer
is fading out. Strike funds of theI
unions might be better used to
prepare the unskilled workers for
new, harder industrial tasks.
Griffin would not reveal any of
his personal plans but said he
would probably announce whet-
er he would run for the Senate at
the end of the month.
The candidacy of Rep. Alvin
Bentley (R-Mich.) is "not partic-
ularly a surprise, Griffin said.
And, if nominated, Bentley should

Navy Hunts
Foreig Sub
BUENOS AIRES (P)-Anxiously
awaiting new United States anti-
submarine equipment, the Ar-
gentine Navy pushed ahead yes-
terday with its great submarine
hunt in an Atlantic gulf 650 miles
southwest of here.
Official secrecy shrouded the
nautical hide-and-seek. Newspa-
pers, rumor peddlers and street-
corner gossips rushed in to fill the
news blackout with their own ver-
sions. The story virtually mono-
polized Argentine front pages.
The navy continued to insist
that there really is a submarine
lurking somewhere under the sur-
face of the Golfo Nuevo, a 20-by-
40 mile body of water with a 10-
mile opening into the Atlantic.
Since it is almost completely sur-
rounded by land, Argentina claims
the gulf as its territorial waters
and thus reserves the right to at-
tack hostile- ships there.
The trouble seems to lie in find-
ing the mystery sub. This is the
fourteenth day since it first was
reported spotted by the navy and
the eleventh since the navy claims
to have the foreign invader bot-
tled up.
"I'm surprised it has not been
captured or escaped by now," said
one foreign naval expert when
asked how long a submarine can
remain below the surface with-
out coming up to recharge its bat-
However, Argentina's navy sec-
retary, Rear Adm. Gaston Cle-
ment, said Thursday that the sub-
marine-and he insisted it really
was one-is forced to come up for
air every 48 hours. To him this
indicated the vessel had been
damaged by depth charges, and
he added that it had been at-
tacked on the surface as well.
Clement predicted capture was
imminent. But the day passed
without any such thing.
President Arturo Frondizi's gov-
ernment backed up the navy and
sent a rush order to the United
States for depth charges, elec-
tronic spare parts, electric testing
devices and aircraft flares. The
Pentagon said in Washington the
gear is expected to arrive in Ar-
gentina by plane today or tomor-
The Argentine corvette 'La Re-
publica,' carrying more modern
anti - submarine equipment than
the navy has on the scene, was
dispatched to the gulf from patrol
duty several hundred miles north.
One foreign naval expert said
depth charges are about the only
weapon the Argentines have
against the underwater intruder.
They lack the equipment to
track a modern submarine with
sonar and "this is a difficult tac-
tic even for the fast moving newer
(surface) ships."
Another naval expert here
pointed out that dropping depth
charges is the equivalent of firing
a shot across the bow of a surface


Red Hel

TWO LEADERS - Jawaharlal Nehru (left) and Nikita Khrush-
chev yesterday met for three hours on the India-Communist
China dispute. Nehru later said that Khrushchev did not offer to
help resolve the conflict.

CIUDAD TRUJLLO, Dominican Republic (A) -- Generalissimo

Nehru Talk
On Dispute
Tells Parliament
No Answer Seen
After Three Hours
NEW DELHI (AP)-Indian hopes
that Nikita S. Khrushchev might
help settle the border dispute of
India and Red China suffered a
setback yesterday.
Prime Minister Jawaharlal Neh-
ru told Parliament after a long
talk with the visiting Soviet Pre-
mier "I see no ground whatever"
for a settlement now.
Khrushchev, here on a South
Asian tour, met alone with Nehru
for nearly three hours. It was
widely assumed they discussed the
quarrel between Peiping and New
Delhi over about 50,000 square
miles of frontier land, a matter
of grave concern here for the last
six months.
Did Not Confirm
Nehru did not confirm that as-
sumption in his address to Parlia-
ment, but emphasized India's de-
sire for a friendly solution.
Saying he had recently replied
to Red China's Dec. 31 call for
top-level talks, he declared there
is at present no common ground,
"no room for negotiation . , ,
nothing to negotiate."
He welcomed the Jan. 28 border
agreement between Red China
and Burma, saying "one conflict
less is good for the world."
Might Persuade
Many Indians have felt Khrush-
chev might persuade the Soviet
Union's big Asian ally to pull its
troops from the Himalayan areas
both India and Red China claim.
But Nehru is reported to have had
no such hopes - to doubt in fact
that the Soviet leader has enough
influence with Red China's Mao
Tze-Tung to change the Chinese

in betterhvoice than Thursday

this afternoon at Ram Shila

strength as the world's most pow-
erful deterrent to war, and as
spreading the idea of peaceful co-
existence "even among advocates
of the cold war.

New Planet
By Russians
A Soviet newspaper says Rus-
sian astronomers have discovered
a new planet wheeling far out
around the sun.
This would mean that our sun
has ten planets instead of the
presently-known nine.
Pluto is the outermost planet,
wheeling in an orbit more than
1.5 billion miles from the sun. It
was discovered in 1930 by Ameri-
can scientists.
Confirm Existence
Now the provincial Soviet news-
paper "Kazakhstan Pravda" says
astronomers at the Kazakhstan
Astrophysical Institute have con-
finned the existence of a very
small planet even farther out than
The newspaper said this plan-
et's existence was first detected
by accident in 1957 while photo-
graphing stars in the constellation
Capricorn and that subsequent
studies have confirmed that it is a
planet. No name has yet been
given to it.
No Doubt
Prof. Leo Goldberg, chairman
of the University's astronomy de-
partment said that he saw no
reason to doubt the claim but
that adequate information had
not yet been given to check on the
planet's existence.
He said the planet's discovery
would have "great interest and
importance" if the object was ac-
tually a planet and did not turn
out to be an asteroid or a similar
body. There have not been any
"obvious" observations or clues to
the planet's possible existence, he
Prof. Goldberg commented that
the way in which the news was
released was unusual. The news
of such a discovery is normally
not announced through a news-
paper but is reported in scientific
journals and more information is
given so that fellow scientists may
check the discovery.
Reporting System
A world-wide reporting system
is already established for discov-
eries of this type in Copenhagen,
Prof. Goldberg said. The discov-
eries are usually sent there and
telegrams are sent throughout the
world to astronomers announcing
the. find-

Hatcher Discusses Book o f Jo b

University President Harlan Hatcher yesterday characterized the
major question in the Book of Job as one of explaining the existence
in the world of suffering and injustice, "especially when these seem
to have no relationship with the moral goodness of the person suffer-
Speaking at the Student Government Council's Reading and
Discussion seminar on "Job," attended by nearly 75 people and over-
flowing the room where it was held, President Hatcher said that this
is "a question that has worried men since the dawn of time."
President Hatcher said that in considering Job, it was necessary
to consider several aspects of the view of God and the universe held
previous to the time of Job.
First Traditional View Held
First came the traditional view that those who were good were
rewarded, and those who were evil were punished. But these rewards
and punishments were given on earth, not in some life-after-death

igan State University trustee says
he has been criticized for meeting
with students and faculty mem-
bers to discuss campus issues.
Don Stevens, Democrat of Oke-
mos, did not identify his critics
at Thursday's meeting of the MSU
Board of Trustees,
"I've always adhered to the idea
I should try to inform myself on
important issues at the univer-
sity," Stevens said.
Stevens spoke after the board
voted 5-1 to defer action until
April on a proposal to abolish
compulsory military training
(ROTC) at MSU. The academic
senate made the recommendaiton.
MSU President John A. Hannah
told Stevens he never has object-
ed. to board members sounding
out student and faculty opinion.
But Hannah said that chaos
could result if the faculty and stu-
dents could bring their problems
to the board without consulting
administrative officers.
"The usual procedure at any
university," Hannah said, "is to
keep matters of internal admin-
istration to the administrative of-
ficers. When the staff is not per-
forming satisfactorily, the board
then replaces the administrative
