Budget To Affect
U nroment Staff
Appropriation Slash To Force Cut
Of 175-200 in Campus Personnel
By MICHAEL KRAFT
An end to rising enrollments and an overall reduction in staff
emerged last night as part of the University's adjustment to the
Legislature's "economy appropriation."
University officials said the $929,000 cut in the appropriation will
force a reduction of 175 to 200 employees from a staff of about 2500.
However, the reduction will notnecessarily take place in instruc-
tional areas nor would those now on the faculty be forced to leave,
University Vice-President and Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss
said. The University would, in general, reduce the staff by not replac-
ing those who resign or complete assignments. A number of teaching

move aimed at giving Algeria its
freedom would not be accepted by
the present Parliament- except
by the Communists, who want a
quick peace at any price, and a
minority of the Socialists. It prob-
ably would provoke street rioting
from diehard elements of the right.
But most responsible French
leaders realize that rejection of
any new American proposals
would not be realistic. France
must have American support in
her Algerian policy and elsewhere
despite all talk.;
Some Frenchmen treated the
American press reports and the
Washington denial with suspicion
because they came just after the
government had been thrown out
on the very issue of feared Ameri-
can interference in North Africa.
Others suggested the reports
might affect nationwide local elec-
tions slated for Sunday. Some 9,000
candidates are running for 1,579
county council seats. They thought
the anti-American sections of the
extreme right and left might gain
votes as a result. The results could
contain-some clues as to what the
country is thinking and perhaps

Men to Aden
LONDON (A') - Britain rushed
troop formations yesterday to the
southwest corner of the Arabian
Peninsula, where trouble has flared
along the border dividing the Aden
Protectorate and Yemen..
The 8,000 - ton British cruiser
Gambia and the 1,575-ton frigate
Loch Fada steamed into Aden
with the first detachments. Other
units were sent by plane from
Kenya, to which they had been
flown from Britain earlier in the
week to form a strategic reserve.
The troops, in numbers not dis-
closed, are reinforcing Aden gov-
ernment levies facing Yemeni
tribesmen believed armed with-
Four days ago the British gov-
ernment protested to the Yemeni
charge d'affaires in London against
two attacks which the British said
the Yemeni had made on two
border forts. The protest charged
the Yemeni used heavy mortars.
Sporadic fighting has gone on
for the last couple of years along
the frontier, spurred apparently
by the belief that the area con-
tains untapped oil riches. The
frontier is not clearly defined.
Yemen has accused the British
of making attacks on Yemeni ter-
ritory. Yemen recently associated
itself in the United Arab Republic
with Egypt and Syria.
An attempt to test the citizen's
right to make an arrest got an
unidentified University student in-
to trouble Friday.
Bill Passes House
The bill passed through the
House by the narrow margin of 56
to 52. The simple majority of the
House neededto pass the bill is 56.
The legislators adopted a con-
ference committee report which
cut cut a $2,322,146 amendment to
the original bill. The addition, pro-
posed by Rep. George Sallade (R-
Ann Arbor), would have restored
$929,900 to the University.
The report of the conference
committee was exactly the same as
the report of a different confer-
ence committee on the same prob-
lem. The second committee was
appointed after the House refused
to accept the report of the first.
Same Report Submitted
The second committee, however,
was composed of the same mem-
bers as the first and submitted the
same report. The report passedthe
Senate 20 to nine and then was
approved by the House at ap-
proximately 6 p.m. yesterday.
In the Senate, Sen. Donald
Smith (R-Owosso) was the only
Republican to vote against the
committee's report because he
would like to show the educators

lips (R-Port Huron).
In a last minute attempt to keep
the fight alive Rep. Ralph Young
(R-East Lansing) motioned for a
reconsideration of the vote.
Caught off guard, some repre-
sentatives discussed the issue, ad-
mittedly "so we could take enough

NEW YORK (P)--Former Presi-
dent Herbert Hoover, nearing 84
and plagued by recurring gall
bladder attacks, had, the organ re-
moved yesterday. His excellent
general health brought him
through the operation like a man
20 to 25 years younger..
"The doctors could not be more
pleased with his -condition," said
one of his two sons, Herbert
Hoover Jr. "They say everything
is very wonderful."
The son made the report to
newsmen at 1 pm~ about four
hours after the conclusion of the

Operation Not Emergency
"There is no emergency in con-
nection with this operation. My
father had been bothered for some
time, and he and his doctors de-
cided this would be a good time

wasn't suffering from it."
Hoover's other son, Allan, of
Greenwich, Conn., also was at the

the Columbia-Presbyterian Medi-
cal Center, during the operation.
A doctors' report issued by the
hospital at 4 p.m. said: "Mr.

Develop New Angle
One new angle developed by
U.S. planners in this field, it is
understood, is a proposal that if
a test ban had to be revoked at
the end of two or three years, the
atomic powers would guarantee in
advance that any further tests
would be free from fallout.
The most obvious way to elii-
nate fallout, officials said, would
be to explode the atomic devices
under ground so that radioactive
materials would be sealed in the
earth. Ultra high altitude nuclear
explosions presumably also would
offer a means of fallout control if

Dulles plans to attend a meeting
of NATO foreign ministers in
Copenhagen May 5-7.
The shape of allied decisions as
they involve Britain depends on
an important factor: The extent
to which the Vnited States is will-
ing to share its atomic weapons
know-how with Britain. The issue
is pending before Congress, and
the outcome is uncertain.
