Senate Delays
Budget Dectsion
Special to 'The Daily
LANSING. - Michigan legislators yesterday postponed decision
on state budgetary matters, 'includingthe University's 1958-59 oper-
ating budget appropriation, until 10: a.m. today.
The Senate held up all action on bills until all appropriation items
are out of *onference committees.
A $30 million budget for next year's University operations was
approved by the Senate last month. The House last week raised this
to $30,929,000, a figure equal to University's appropriation for the
current 'year.
The increase came in an amendment to the Senate bill by Rep.
George Ballade (R-Ann Arbor) raising the appropriation for all state

Union Board of Directors last
night unanimously voted to dis-
band the Union Senate.
Russell Berman, '59, Union ex-
ecutive vice - president, said the
majority of the participants had
been unable to devote sufficient
time to the senate, which had fail-

The Senate ran into initial pro-
cedural difficulties when it was
established last year but ironed
them out after several special
meetings. It then went on to con-
sider items as Homecoming and
the Literary College honor system.
Interest waned, however and
there was difficulty in obtaining
a quorum in the last meetings of
the Senate.
The bookstore committee was
directed to study further the feasi-
bility of a Union bookstore. This
echoed the action of the Board in
its meeting last month during
which it endorsed the concept of
the bookstore and asked for a
reasonable plan for establishment
of the store.
A Board vacancy created by the
Joint Judiciary invalidation of the
election of Sid Jackson, '60, was
filled by the appointment of Frank
Tranzow, '59E, former Union Ex-

Joint Judiciary Council has
sent a letter of warning to Ga-
lens, medical honorary, regarding
the boundary violation* incurred
during the group's annual 'bucket
drive last December, according to
Mike Jacobson, '58, chairmen of
the Council.
SGC had told Galens because of
the Campus Chest drive' it could
not conduct its charity drive with-
in certain boundaries which the'
Council considered to be part of
the campus.
Buckets were admittedly placed
at twb locations within the area,
- according to a Joint Judic report.
The letter warned Galens that
if future violations occur more
severe action will be taken by
Joint Judic.
The announcement of the de-
cision was delayed because of the
extra time given to Galens to ap-
peal the decision.
Galens decided not to appeal
the decision because of a lack of
time. "We've fdught as much as
we have time for," Robert Jew-
ett, '58M, president of Galens,
Questions about the violation
arose in Decemberafter it was
reported to SGC that soliciting
for funds was being carried on
within the campus area.

Racial Basis
For Rooming
There is no sound reason to
assign roommates by race except
that somebody is afraid of "con-;
tamination," a former officer of
the National Association for the.
Advancement of Colored People
declared yesterday.
Mrs. Hillary Bissell told a meet-{
ing of the local chapter of the
NAACP that "even a tiny bit of
segregation gives birth to second
class citizenship."
Now- a member of the Grand
Rapids Human Relations Commis-
sion, Mrs. Bissell recalled that 25
years ago when she was a student,
at theUniversity, Negroes were
not allowed to live in the dormi-
tories with white students and
down by the railroad tracks, there
was a separate dormitory for Ne-
gro women.
Pointing to lack of roommate
integration, Mrs. Bissell said pro-
gress towards ending segregation
on campus today is not proceed-
ing any faster than in other com-
munities. "I doubt if there will be
much change until more of the,
pressures of the larger community
are brought to play," she said.
She described housing as the
"great battlefront" in the fight for

Author Vance Packard compared
the future of the United States
with the "Utopia" of Aldous Hux-
ley's "Brave New World," in his
visit to the University yesterday,
sponsored by the' Journalism, De-
Addressing listeners at both the
Journalism Lecture series and the
1958 Advertising Conference, Pack-
ard explained that his best seller
"The Hidden Persuaders," pro-
tested the over-commercialism of
American life.
In his speech given at the jour-
nalism lecture "Morality and the
Hidden Persuaders," he accused
the American people of self-ir-
dulgence and too great an empha-

He pointed out that such tech-i
niques were banned in Great Bri-
tain, within three weeks of the
time they were first demonstrated.
Over-Use Politics
"What is the morality in playing
upon our hidden weaknesses?" he
questioned. Politics, that so im-
portant aspect of democracy,. is
one medium through which adver-
tisers have overrun their bounds.
In politics, the same forces are
used to imprint an individual's
character upon the minds of as
many people as possible. Politi-
cians are "using the insights of
Freud" to build up images for
their campaigns, he said. And, like
Pavlov, they are "hammering mes-
sages across."

"The Hidden Persuaders"'causing
observers at the advertising con-
ference to comment that "they
were surprised at the more objec-
tive views he expressed at the con-
Saidone advertising executive,
"I expected him to kill us, but
there were only slight wounds."
Speaks on Behavior
Speaking before theassembled
advertisers, Packard concerned
himself with "The Whys of Our
Behavior," and remarked upon the
unique situation existent in Ameri-
ca today.
"Previously, our great concern
was how to exist on less than we
needed," he remarked. "Now abun-
dance is upon us, as a result of an
