$30,000,00 by a Senate Appropri-

18 votes needed to pass the four
major bills of the state's economy
gThe Appropriations Committee
voted only one increase in the
measures as introduced. The three
psychiatric units at the University
received $150,000 more in the
me tal health appropriation.
Hwigher education recommenda-
tin remained unchanged at
$87,423,891 with the University
slated for $30,000,000 in the bill.

LANSING (A)- Whether House
Republicans keep their vow to
hold the line on state spending
probably will hinge on whether
they can withstand pressure for
more welfare allocations, Rep.
Arnell Engstrom\ (R-Traverse
City) said last night.
"If the line breaks on anything,
it probably will be in the welfare
area," the chairman of the House
Ways and Means Committee told
newsmen after a GOP caucus.
So far, lawmakers have resisted
pleas of county welfare directors
1 to restore the 50-50 matching
formula for state and local shar-
ing of welfare costs. Last year, the
formula was revised to reduce the
state's share to 30 per cent and
boost the local share to 70 per cent
in return for a bigger state allo-
cation to local welfare hospitali-
The move was calculated to help
out local budgets, but it backfired
when unemployment took a sharp
upturn and welfare rolls went up
-Legislators from such high un-
employment areas as Kent, Mon-
roe, Wayne and Genesee countys
are being subjected to pressure to
restore the old formula, and it is
getting pretty heavy," Rep. Eng-
To do so, he said, would cost
the state at least nine million dol-
lars over proposed appropriations
for welfare, based on the current
average of 31,000 persons drawing

that area, Engstrom added, the

Report to Legislative Committee
Urges Single State-Wide Program
By BARTON HUTHWAITE
A single, state-wide program of extension courses for the state
of Michigan was urged yesterday by two educational specialists.
Reporting to a legislative study committee on higher education,,
they called'for a gradual pooling of state college and university
resources under a single administration.
Dean of State-Wide Education Harold Dorr and Director of
the University Extension Service, Everett Soop, declined to comment
on the survey pending examination of the report.
Dr. Julius Nolte, extension program dean at the University of
Minnesota, and Dr. Robert Browne, extension specialist with the
University of Illinois, compiled the
survey after a study of extension'
courses offered at eight of Michi-
gan's nine state-supported higher
"Surely, if any competent per-
sons were asked to design a sys-
tem to fit modern conditions, they
would not end up with what Mich-
igan has now," they said.
A permanent bureau or chan-
cellor was suggested in order to
make co-operation between the
various schools more effective.

The officers elected tonight will
serve until after the fall elections.
A report from the Student Book
Exchange has been given to the
Council members. It indicates an
SBX profit of $11.05 for the spring
semester operations, with gross
sales of $5,619.38.
The report also requests an ap-
propriation of $2,000 from SGC to
finance the purchase of books
from students, to allow for great-
er sales in the fall. Otherwise, the'
report says, students' reluctance
to hold their books over the sum-
mer and turn them in in the fall
will hurt SBX sales.
A motion to delegate the ad-
ministrative duties of preparing
the "M-Handbook" to the Union
will also be presented tonight.

The Student Government Coun-
cil is being sued for $38 by Andre
Barrosa, '59L, at 9 a.m. Tuesday
in Municipal Court.
The suit involves the confisca-
tion of Barrosa's books by the
council-manned student book ex-
change a year ago.
Barrosa claims that he left his
books at SBX to be sold last
spring. When they were not sold,
he was notified to come pick them
up on the following Saturday.
Say SBX Closed
On that Saturday the bookstore
was closed. The next time he tried
to get his books he was told by
Ira Bernstein, 59, student SBX
manager at the time, that it was
too late to retreive them.
Barrosa then went to see Dean
John Bingley, assistant dean of
men, who. directed him to SGC
saying, it wasn't in the adminis-
For the remainder of the year,
Barrosa tried to get satisfaction
out of SGC. Finally he was told
that the records of the SBX at
that time were lost and there was
nothing SOC could do at the time
about the matter.
Take Case to Court
Barrosa then took his case to
court, but no case was established
because SGC was declared "legally
underage" and not responsible.
Barrosa offered no explanation
as to the basis of his new case. He
stressed that no .attempt has been
made to fully explain the matter
Joe Collins, '58, president of
SGC, said Barrosa asked for his
books three months after the ex-
Ronald Shorr, '58, executive
vice-president of SGC, said that

Administer Own Program
Any controlling body, however,
should decide only on matters of
broad policy, leaving with each
college the authority to administer
its own extension program, they
said in the report, one of seven
being conducted under the direc-
tion -of John Russell.
Success of the venture, they
indicated, might lead to central-1
ized administration of all nine
colleges, displacing the present un-
gainly and cumbersome system or
lack of system" which is now run
by six different boards.
They classed only 10 of the 2,000'
courses now offered by the nine
state schools as "unjustifiable

Complete Overhaul Unnecessary
"A complete overhauling" of the
higher education system might be
unnecessary if cooperation of this
kind .could be widened, the report
Nolte and Browne said the nine
extension and field services reach'
at least 160,000 persons a year in
77 of the state's 83 counties, and
include 2,000 courses in at least
219 communities. Most courses are
partially but not all self-support-
ing, leading educators in some,
cases to offer those which are most'
likely to pay for themselves,
though others may be badly need-
ed, they continued.
Metropolitan areas get the best
service, the report said, and resi-
dents of the less populated areas
of northern Michigan the least.
By Decisive Vote
By JOHN AXE
The Fraternity Presidents As-
sembly of the Inter-Fraternity
Council last night turned down a
proposal to grant Tau Epsilon Phi
colony status at the University.
The vote on the proposal which
was recommended by the IFC Ex-
ecutive Committee was six for,
32 against, with one abstention.
The motion would have granted
the new fraternity colony status
sometime next fall pending a re-
view by the executive committee
The committee would review the
status of the predominantly Jew-
ish fraternity in light of Univer-
sity admission policy next fall.
The motion was vigorously op-
posed by the presidents of Zeta
Beta Tau, DeltaePhi, Phi Epsilon
Pi, Phi Sigma Delta, Acacia and
Delta Sigma Phi, the first four
of which are also predominently
Jewish in membership.
Among the foremost criticisms
of the motion was that the intro-
duction of another primarily Jew-
ish fraternity on campus at this
time would place in jeopardy sev-
eral of the Jewish fraternities now
Steve Davis, '59BAd., of Zeta
Beta Tau and Mike Bernstein,
'59BAd., of Tau Delta:.Phi, sup-
ported the contention citing sta-
tistics to show that the predom-
inently Jewish fraternities were
now pledging a higher percentage
of rushees than the refit of the
fraternities in general.
Expansion Could Weaken System
Bernstein also pointed out that
only 22 of the rushees who rushed
pfedominently Jewish fraternities
this spring failed to pledge.
Because of this, those presidents
who were opposed to the motion
said they felt that expansion at
this time could result in a weak-
ening of the present fraternity
The Ann Arbor City Council
Monday night approved a mea-
sure changing the date of bicycle
license expiration from April 30 to
September 30. -
Licenses scheduled to expire on
April 30 of this year will be auto-
matically extended to September
30. All subsequent licenses will be
effective for an October 1 to Sep-
tember 30 cycle.
The Council rejected an alter-
native proposal to make the per-
mits good for a two year period.
Dulles Acknowledges Russia
Achieve Propaganda Victor
W ith NuclearBan Delarati
r Support Proposal
LONDON () -Prime Minister
Harold Macmillan resisted pres-
-sure from some Laborites and re-
fused yesterday to follow Russia's
lead in announcing a ban on nu-
clear weapons tests.
Macmillan held fast to the West-
ern position that test suspensions
are a subject for international
negotiation in which safeguards
against cheating can be worked
He told the House of Commons
that Britain has put her faith in
the prospect that a summit con-
ference would settle once and for
all the problems of nuclear tests
A movement is growing in Brit-
ain for this nation to abandon nu-
clear weapons completely. "Ban
the bomb" demonstrations are ex-
pected during the Easter weekend.
Macmillan commented, "We
have long been anxious, as our
proposals have shown, to negoti-
ate an agreement on disarmament
which will include arrangements
for the ending or suspension of
tests under proper conditions, at
a suitable date and with agree-
ment on an inspection system."
West European officials gen-
erally did not go along, at least
publicly, with the United States
State Department assertion that
the suspension was meaningless
because there was no provision
for international inspection.
In West Germany, the influen-
tial Independent Frankfurter All-
gemeine Zeitung cited the Soviet
announcement as having "far-
reaching psychological value"
which had put America and Brit-
ain in "an awkward position."
An Asian diplomat at the United
Nations said the Russians had
"scored a tremendous propaganda
victory in our part of the world."
Moscow radio disputed the
American assertion that the So-
viets might cheat on their ban
with secret explosions. "Nuclear
explosions cannot be hidden now,"
it said. "Not a single one has been
hidden so far."
The broadcast accused the State
Department of "trying to make
the Soviet decision look like a
clever propaganda move. Well,
they can call it what they choose,
but that won't change the idea
behind the Soviet decision."
Japan Is Pleased
Official circles in France-which
is believed nearing a test of her
first atomic weapon - said the
Russian decision might indicate a
wish for a disarmament agree-
ment. Soviet Foreign Minister An-
drei Gromyko said it did.
In Japan, the Kremlin an-
nouncement was welcomed by
Foreign Minister Aichiro Fujiya-
ma, who said he hoped it would
lead to an international ban.
Choral Union Concert Series

Band will be Capt. Julius Her-
mann. Soloists will include soprano

performed here in the Chicago
World Fair of 1893. The history of
the band dates back to the be-
ginning of the 18th century, when
it grew out of the royal infantry
regiment under the partonage of
the Empress Maria Theresa.
The group eventually became
more than a military organiza-
tion, and began touring Austria
and Europe during peacetime
