Capital Outlays'
$500,000 Mental Health Building
Deleted; Bill Goes To Conference
The University's capital outlay appropriations, already far be-
low estimated needs, were tentatively deleted Thursday by more
than $650,000 by the House Ways and Means Committee.
Refusing to approve the Senate Finance Committee bill, the
house group chopped off the $500,000 appropriation for a mental
health research center and $180,000 in planning money for a School
of Music.

House-Senate conference committee
--)which must produce an acceptable
compromise before the Legisla-
ture reconvenes May 10.
Informed observers claim the
move was political in nature.
A pension plan pushed by the
Ways and Means Committee was
killed by the Senate Finance Com-
mittee shortly before the Ways
and Means Committee shopped up
the senate capital outlay bill.
University Vice-President and
nd Dean of Facilities Marvin L. Nie-
to huss expressed disappointment
an yesterday over the house action.
s- "We have been requesting the
planning money for a School of
he Music for a long time and we were
a- disappointed to lose it after the
ng Senate Finance Committee had
m appropriated it," he said.
ls. Part May Be Restored
on There is still a good chance,
io however, that at least a portion of
r- the money will be restored either
ty by the conference committee or
I- the Legislature itself.
dSen. Elmer R. Porter, chairman
d-of the "Senate Finance 'Comrmittee
to and a member of the conference
st group, said it was "anybody's
guess" what would happen to the
deleted funds.
re The conference committee is
o slated to meet May 1.
th Although he didn't want to com-
ial mit himself Sen. Porter indicated
Jp the House action may well have
ds been a retaliatory move.
Original money appropriated by

Civil Rights
Administration Asks
New Law Changes
hower' Administration formally
asked Congress yesterday to create
a federal civil rights commission.
It asked also that a civil rights
division be created in the Justice
Department, partly because of an
expected flow of lawsuits over ra-
cial integration.
It called, too, for a new law to
"prevent anyone from threatening,
intimidating, or coercing an indi-
vidual in the exercise of his right
to vote."
Seek Authority
Further, the Administration
sought authority for the Attorney
General to bring action in the
courts on behalf of any aggrieved
It proposed that Congress throw
out the present requirement that
administrative and judicial rem-
edies in the states must be ex-
hausted before a civil rights case
can be taken to federal court.
Whether Congress will do any-
thing about the requests, submitted
by Attorney General Herbert
Brownell with the approval of
President Dwight D. Eisenhower,
remained in question.
The president first asked for the
commission more than three
months ago. He proposed then
that it look into charges that
Negroes are being deprived of the
right to vote in some localities
and are "being subjected to un-
warranted economic pressures."
*Questions Passage."
Sen. Walter George (D-Ga.),
said thast while he hadn't studied
Brownell's proposals closely, "I
would question that they would
pass in this session of Congress."
President Eisenhower said on
March 31 that he hoped Congress
would act on his proposals but that
if it declined to do so, he would
consider calling conferences of one
type or another to consider racial
The question of civil rights pri-
marily involves complaints that
Negroes are being deprived of their
rights in Southern states.
It is always a hot political ques-
tion and is hotter than usual this
year because of disputes over the
Supreme Court decision against
segregation in schools.- Also, the
Negro vote in the North is a grow-
ing factor.,
One big obstacle facing the
Brownell proposals is the fact- that
they would go before the Senate
Judiciary Committee headed by
Sen. James O. Eastland (D-Miss.).
Sen. Eastland has opposed previous
Administration actions in the ra-
cial field.

.., Executive Veep .. . Will head Union



To Resign
Dr. Ralph D. Rabinovitch, head
of the Children's Service of the
Neuropsychiatric Institute who
will resign his post on July 1, re-
cently announced "about 20" mem-
hers' of the Hospital's staff are
also planning to resign.
The psychiatrist said the 'team
approach' treatment at the hos-
pital made it understandable" that
many members of the team should
wish to stay together to continue
both treatment and research."
University Director-of Pudlic Re-
lations Arthur L. Brandon, said
it was not unusual for the number
of resignations to increase at this
time of year or for the resignations
of staff members to follow that of
a department head.
As yet most of the names of
those members planning to resign
have not been disclosed.
However, Dr. Rabinovitch's wife,
Dr. Sara Dubo, an assistant pro-
fessor of psychiatry will resign
with her husband, and the resig-
nation of Dr. Winifred Ingram,
supervising psychologist in the
Children's Service, has also been
made public.,
The Rabinovitches have inform-
ed University officials that they,
will either accept posts as direc-
tors of the Hawthorne Center be-
ing constructed at Northville or
will leave state service.
Acceptance of the Hawthorne
past hinges on whether or not the
State Legislature will appropriate
money to make improvements sug-
gested by Dr. Rabinovitch.
Dr. Rabinovitch has insisted
that changes be made in order to
make the program at Hawthorne
"feasible and safe." The estimated
cost of such imnprovements is $60,-
Charges that the Children's
Hospital staff is being raided have
been denied by Dr. Rabinovitch. He
pointed out that resignations by
his fellow workers preceeded his
consideration of Hawthorne.
