A conference report, giving this summation, said the four-day
session had come to the conclusion the federal government "should
increase its financial participation in public education."
It said that of those favoring increased federal aid, an "over-
whelming majority" approved the use of federal funds to help build

Roommate Integration
Discussed By Panelists
A panel of three psychologists and sociologists last night agreed
that racial integration of roommates is beneficial to most students
Prof. Theodore Newcomb of the psychology department said
"whenever it happens that people get sorted out involuntarily and it's
observed by others, some injury is being done to them psychologically."
The discussion was the first in a series sponsored by the local
chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored
Another panelist, Oscar Grusky of the psychology department,
stressed that roommates are 'ripe for attitude change" toward each
" other's races. "The more you learn
about a person," he explained, "the
less you come to view him as a
Wl if racialnstereotype."
