Power Criticizes
Russell Report
ays Planning Coud BestBe Done
ByCooperation Between Colleges
Planning of higher education in the state could be done best by
voluntary cooperation between state colleges and universities, Regent
Eugene B. Power said yesterday.
He criticized the Russell report proposal which called for a cen-
tral state agency to coordinate the work of Michigan's nine colleges
and universities.
Some steps toward voluntary cooperation have already been
taken, Regent Power said.
"Why another agency?" he asked. He said the proposed board
would be "just one more board on top of the others."
Regent Power also rejected two other Russell proposals - for ap-

pointment instead of election of m
School Tax'
The University and other state-
supported schools should be aided
by an "ear-marked" tax, Univer-
sity Regent Eugene B. Power said
"Should the Iegislature decide
to establish a state income tax

... suggests earmarked tax
next year, a portion of this tax
might well be allocated for the
purposes of higher education," he
Could Plan Ahead
If the University had an assured
source of income, it would be able
to plan ahead more than it has
been able to in recent "feast and
famine" years.
Regent Power said that he nor-
mally did not believe in the ear-
marked tax, but that with ap-
proximately two - thirds of the
states revenue already allocated
every year, higher education has
to bear an unfair burden during
austerity years.
Grew on Allocated Tax
The University grew strong on
an allocated mill tax, he said,
which was discontinued during the
While he praised the Legislature
for being "more than generous,"
and said that the University has
grown tremendously since the '30's,
he said there has been "an element
of uncertainty" in University
growth under the present appro-
priations system.
Meany Warns
Against Pacts
WASHINGTON (-) - President
George Meany of the AFL-CIO
yesterday sternly warned affiliat-
ed unions against alliances with
James R. Hoffa's giant Teamsters
Any such alliance, Meany said,
"gives aid and comfort to those
responsible for the despoilation of
the Teamsters Union" and is det-
rimental in the long run to the
welfare and interests of all unions
affiliated with the AFL-CIO.
Meany said he looks forward to
the day "when members of the
Teamsters Union who have been
victims of shameless exploitation
by some of their leaders will take
the necessary steps within this
union so that it can take its proper
vnln . i rth', AFLrTn. "

Ssity governing bodies and elim-
ination of university presidents
as chairmen of the governing
Both the Regents, as the elected
governing body of the University
and University President Harlan
Hatcher, as chairman of the Re-
gents, would be Affected by such
a move.
Interposes Another Body
Regent Power said that an over-
all planning agency implies con-
trol from the top. It would just
interpose one more body between
the University and the governor,
he said.
The preparation of budgets is a.
responsibility which belongs to
the governor, who delegates it to
the state controller's office, Re-
gent Power said.
Russell had proposed that the
central planning agency furnish
state fiscal authorities and the
legislature with an annual report
on budget needs of the nine insti-
Rejects Suggestion
In rejecting Russell's suggestion
that the Board members of all
state institutions be appointed by
the governor instead of elected by
popular vote, Regent Power said
that Regents are "much more
likely" to be responsive to the edu-
cational needs and desires of the
public if elected.
"This is the democratic process
in this country. We elect our
school boards, legislators and
judges, why not our Regents?" he
"There is always the danger
that appointments will be used
to settle political debts."
Election in Spring
The constitution provides for
the election of Regents in the
spring, to escape the heat of the
fall political campaign, Regent
Power said. Historically, Regents
selected have been able and edu-
cated men.
Regent Power saw "no reason"
why President Hatcher should not
continue to serve as chairman of
the Regents. He said that the
president's duties as presiding of-
ficer are provided for in the state

In Summit
Talk Plans
Macmillan, De Gaulle
Split on Time, Place
LONDON, (R) - Britain and
France sent divergent plans for
a Mideast summit meeting to So-
viet Premier Nikita Khrushchev
yesterday, in effect returning the
ball to him.
The two allies disagreed on a,
date and auspices for such a meet-
The United States held off un-
til today. But Secretary of State
John Foster Dulles indicated Pres-
ident Dwight D. Eisenhower fa-
vors the proposal of Britain's
Prime Minister Harold Macmillan.
Wants Special Session
Macmillan wants a special sum-
mit session of the United Nations
Security Council to open Aug. 12
-in New York, Geneva or else-
where. He is asking UN headquar-
ters in New York to act at once
to arrange the meeting and said
he is willing to attend.
Dulles told a Washington news
conference the United States con-
siders Aug. 12 as an agreeable
date for opening a UN summit
session. He said the meeting pre-
sumably could go ahead without

French leader decided to stay
De Gaulle Repeats Objection

He objected again to summit talks
within the UN framework.
Instead, he accepted the original
Soviet proposal for a meeting of
the Big Four powers plus India,
with UN Secretary General Dag
Hammarskjold sitting in.
Saf ety'Talks
States yesterday proposed the first
week of October for the start of
East-West technical talks on what
would be needed to prevent sur-
prise attacks in this nuclear mis-
sile age.
In a note to Moscow, this coun-
try suggested the talks take place
in Geneva, where scientists rep-
resenting the East and West al-
ready are discussing ways of po-
licing a possible future ban on
nuclear tests.
Experts for the proposed Octo-
ber talks on preventing surprise
attacks would be designated by
the United States and Russia, and
possibly by certain other states.
Their assignment, the United
States note said, would be "a study
of the technical aspects of safe-
guards against the possibility of
surprise attack."
The note said they would "con-
centrate on the means and objects
of control and on the results
which could be secured from these
This was taken to mean that
the experts would examine such
specific questions as setting up
aerial and ground inspection teams
which would be on the lookout for
any big-scale military buildups.






Dulles Raps
In Mid-East
WASHINGTON (P) - Secretary
of State John Foster Dulles said
yesterday the world faces grave
danger of war unless Russia
agrees the United Nations should
be allowed to act against indirect
aggression in the Middle East.
At the same time, Dulles pledged
the United States would withdraw
its troops from Lebanon whenever+
It Is asked to do so by a duly con-
stituted Lebanese government.
Concentrate on Subversion
At a news conference, Dulles
said any emergency summit talks
between President Dwight D.
Eisenhower, Soviet Premier Nikita
Khrushchev. and others should
concentrate on the problem of in-
direct aggression - by which he
meant Communist subversion of
existing regimes.
Dulles said the other chief value
of a summit parley would be to
expose what he_ called the false-
ness of Khrushchev's charge that
United States-British troop land-
ings have imperiled Middle East
In Grave Danger
It will be impossible, he said, to
restore stability as long as Middle
East rulers live under a threat of
assassination and murder at the
hands of fanatic foes.
"If the practices of indirect ag-
gression as they are being devel-
oped at the present time are al-
lowed to persist in the world"
Dulles said, "and if no way is
found to check that, then I be-
lieve the world is indeed in grave
danger of war.
Suggests UN Moves
"I believe that that can be made
apparent .. . Also I believe that if
the Soviet Union does not want a
war they will almost have to agree
that these- practices should be
brought under some kind of con-
trol by the United Nations."
Dulles suggested two possible
UN moves: 1) keeping a constant
check on inflammatory radio
broadcasts beamed into the area,
calling world attention to any in-
citement to violence, and 2) set-
ting up a UN commission to throw
a mantle of international protec-
tion against any country immi-
nently threatened.
Backs British Proposal
Meeting with newsmen for the
first time in a month, Dulles faced
a barrage of questions mainly
about arrangements for a sum-
mit parley. In his replies Dulles
backed British Prime Minister
Macmillan's proposal that a sum-
mit meeting begin About Aug. 12
within the framework of the 11-
member UN Security Council. He
said President Eisenhower will
send Khrushchev a reply today to
the Russian Premier's latest sum-
mit proposal.

Research Team Works with Rockets

Two truckfuls of electronic
equipment, products of the brain-
work of a team of the University
researchers, will leave Ann Arbor
this weekend to assist in an at-
tack on the secrets of the earth's
upper atmosphere.
The site is Guam; destination
60 miles up in the air; attack, this
The eight-man team, led by
Harold F. Allen, of the aeronauti-
cal engineering department, will
participate in the firing of eight
rockets, bringing the total num-
ber of rockets sent skyward by the
University researchers to more
than 50.
The rockets to be fired are the
21-foot-long Aerobee 75 and com-
bination Cajun rockets with Nike
As Allen puts it, the experiment,
"one of the many to advance the
frontiers of human knowledge," is
a part of the United States pro-
gram for the International Geo-
physical Year (IGY).
Involves Four Universities
The program, involving three
other universities, began in July,
1957, and extends through this
year. It entails launching about
200 rockets carrying a multitude
of instruments to transmit infor-
mation about high-altitude phe-
nomena to ground-based record-
ing devices.
The majority of the experiments
are concerned with aspects of
earth's upper atmosphere includ-
ing 1) its density, temperature,
pressure, winds and humidity; 2)
its solar-related constituents, in-
cluding, for example, ionized par-
ticles and ozone; and 3) various
solar radiations.
10 Aerobees Fired
For the last 10 years, the Uni-
versity's Engineering Research In-
stitute has been conducting a re-
search program to survey aspects
of upper atmosphere, including its

ate, with not much time remain-
ing before Congress expects to ad-

proposed there; and several sen-
ators have made speeches in sup-
port of it.

Earlier firings took place at Fort
Churchill, Manitoba and White
Sands, New Mexico.
At Fort Churchill, during the
period November, 1956, through
January, 1958, 10 Aerobees car-
rying a total of 188 grenades were
fired during summer and winter,
day and night conditions. A total
of 153 measurements of tempera-
ture and winds between 15 and 60
mile altitudes were made.
The tiny Pacific island of Guam
was selected as the site chiefly be-
cause of the cheap power and
transportation available. Allen
said that excellent cooperation
from the native people and the
importance of Army and Navy es-
tablishments there are among the
other factors favoring the selec-
tion of Guam.
A total crew of 20, which in-

cludes scientists from the United
States Army Signal Corps Engi-
neering Laboratories and from the
University Research Institute is
expected to reach Guam by Octo-
ber 4.
The eight-member team from
the Institute includes Elton A.
Wenzel, Allan Rock, Wayne Mil-
lard, Robert Schumacher, Peter
Barhydt, Theodore Pattinson and
Jerry Davenport.
Experiment Explained
The first of the series of firings
is expected to take place in the
first week of October.
The experiment is conducted by
launching a rocket, which ejects,
during its ascent, a series of high
explosive. grenades at regular in-
tervals. Exact timing and the posi-
tion of the burst is determined by

Candidates for Sheriff Discu

NLRB Claimed To Establish
Standards Without Authority
The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is tending to es-
tablish moral standards for collective bargaining without clear con-
gressional sanction to do so, Prof. Nathan P. Feinsinger of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin law school suggested yesterday.
Prof. Feinsinger addressed a University law school summer in-
stitute on collective bargaining.
He said employers should not be required to prove claims they
cannot afford wage increases, at least if they have bargained in good
"faith on other matters. (In the
Truit Manufacturing case, the

held an NLRB ruling that em-
