Special to The Daily
LANSING - The University's top officials rolled up their sleeves
yesterday in a fight to prevent Michigan State Cpllege from becoming
Michigan State University.
At a closed hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in
Lansing, University President Harlan H. Hatcher claimed the pro-
posed name Michigan State University "would be an ethical and legal
infringement on the name of the University of Michigan."
President Hatcher emphasized that while neither he nor the Re-
gents oppose a university name for MSC, "they would be derelict in
their constitutional duty if they did not vigorously oppose House Bill
156 (which proposes changing MSC's name to Michigan State Uni-
vertsity), the name it proposes, and the manner in which it has so
far been rushed toward passage."
MSC officials quickly denied that the name change would cause
confusion or that it was unconstitutional.
Present at the hearing in addition to President Hatcher were

Regents Vera B. Baits, Roscoe O. Bonisteel, Otto E. Eckert and Charles
S. Kennedy.
University Vice-President Marvin L. Niehuss, University Relations
Director Arthur L. Brandon, Assistant to the President Robert N. Cross
and Dean E. Blythe Stason and Prof. Paul G. Kauper of the Law
School also sat in during the two-hour session.
Representing the opposing side were MSC President John A. Han-
nah, Frederick H. Mueller who is a member of the State Board of Agri-
culture, MSC's governing body, and MSC attorney Leland W. Carr.
Mueller Speaks for Bill
Mueller, first to speak before the committee, told MSC's reason-
ing behind the name change bill. He reviewed the history of the Col-
lege and previous names which the College had used.
"The Michigan Legislature 100 years ago created MSC after over-
whelming demand by the people of Michigan," he said. Seven years
later, in 1863, the College of East Lansing was enrolled under provisions
of the Morrill Act as Michigan's land grant college.
Later the College adopted the name Michigan State Agricultural

College, and still later adopted the name Michigan
Agriculture and Applied Science, he reported.
"The framers of the constitution," he asserted,
part of the Michigan Constitution designate any p

"MSC is now the eighth largest school in the I

Reuther Calls
NAM Drive
People, He Says
CLEVELAND () - President
Walter P. Reuther of the CIO
United Auto Workers charged yes-
terday that the National Assn. of
Manufacturers is attempting to
"lay down a propaganda tear gas
barrage" against the union's guar-
anteed annual wage demand.
It is doing so, Reuther said, by
seeking to raise a "30 million dol-
lar war chest" through contribu-
tions by employers.
In a letter to NAM President
Henry G. Riter, the UAW and CIO
president called the fund-raising
"an attempt to buy public opin-
ion without regard todthe public
welfare." And he added:
Consistent Reord
"I should like to remind you
that this campaign is consistent
with the NAN's undistinguished
record of working against the
T' best interests of the American
The UAW is holding its conven-
tion here and is putting final
touches to the guaranteed wage
program it hopes to win in forth-
coming negotiations with the auto

Employers Contriute
The NAM fund-raising cam-
paign is being conducted through
the organization's United Business
Committee. Employers have been
asked to contribute according to
the number of employes they
have. The NAM has not mentioned
the size of the fund it expects to
Reuther said the NAM "propa-
ganda" campaign was aimed at
keeping the public from making
up its mind impartially about the
"moral and economic merits" of
the guaranteed wage.

Bretton Hits
At Mayor's
Anti-Charter Stand
Of Brown Criticized
Prof. Henry L. Bretton of the
political science department yes-
terday accused Mayor William
Brown of waging "a campaign
against the new city charter."
Referring to the mayor's "con-
tempt for democratic procedures,"
Prof. Bretton criticized him for
not going along with the Repub-
lican Party platform.
Meanwhile, the telephone cam-
paign against the new charter ap-
pears to have been directed only
against persons connected with
the charter. Reports of anti-char-
ter calls have been generally lim-
ited to that group.
City Attorney William Laird an-
nounced that a simple majority of
the voters is required to pass the
new charter. There had been some
question raised as to the number
In a radio broadcast yesterday,
SMayor Brown referred to "bally-
hoo" over the charter issue. He
again failed to take a stand on
jthe document as a whole, while
criticizing several parts of it.
Prof. Bretton, in a statement
concerning the mayor, said "the

own campaign, this is his own
business, but he should not seek

OK'd by Ike
'WASHING'TON O/P) - President
Dwight D. Eisenhower yesterday
signed legislation giving a raise in
pay to all members of the armed
servicesawho havecompleted their
first "hitches."
The new pay scales go into ef-
fect today.
More Attractive Career
They affect nearly 1,700,000 of-
ficers and enlisted men and are
designed to make military service
more attractive as a career.
Not including allowances for
food and quarters, the pay in
creases average out to 13 per cent
for officers with three years serv-
ice and 11.7 per cent for enlisted
men. Warrant officers and enlisted
men must have two years service
to qualify.
Will Cost $750 Million

for career service personnel is 12
per cent, and will cost an esti-
mated 750 million dollars a year.
With some few exceptions, the
measure provides increases in
base pay only, plus a boost in
bonuses for hazardous duty such
as is paid to submariners, divers,
demolition experts, paratroopers
and other specialists.

Suggest Alternatives
On the matter of courses, stu-
dents believe that they may take
any subject they wish, while coun-
selors said that requirements de-
termine the students' usual selec-
tion of courses, or that the counse-
lors suggest alternatives.
Students seemed to think coun-
selors need specialized training
and background for their job. But
counselors feel that teaching ex-
perience and the right kind of
personality are the two basic re-
quirements for counseling.
Half of the counselors stated
they often referred their counsel-
ees to other University counseling
services, but the students disagree.
Grounds of Agreement
