The University will razei

Work Coincidence
He said timing of the pro

Budget for the 1960 sum
mer sessions increased to
$358,276 mainly due to salary
adjustments. Director Frank
E. Sorenson said other fac
tors causing the increase in
clude a change in the ani
mal husbandry program from
a four to an eight week
course and additional courses
in anthropology.
More Pay
Hardin pointed out that a
previous maximum summer
pay of $1,500 for summer pro
fessors made it difficult to
obtain outside professors and
that the new maximum would
be $1,700.
He also noted that more
and more students are attend
ing school the year -round
and said, "This should have
the effect of lessening peak
of enrollment and using fa
cilities to the utmost."
Dean of Faculties Adam
Breckenridge also noted re
cent figures which show more
summer school students are
completing work on degrees
rather than working to ful
fill teaching certificates.
Fellowship Increase
Regents also took action
Saturday to increase their
Graduate Fellowships from
$1,500 to $2,000.
Chancellor Hardin, who
pointed out that the additional
funds will come from endow
ment funds of the University
such as the Woodrow Wilson
Foundation and not from
taxes, told Regents, "With
the old rate we couldn't get
top students to apply. They
could get more elsewhere."
He pointed out that the
new sum would make the
fellowships the .best that the
University has to offer gradu
ates, but "behind what many
other institutions have."
McMaster Resigns
In other action, the Board
approved the resignation of
Howard M. McMaster, part
time associate professor, de
partment of civil engineering.
Hardin said, "McMaster
feels he can no longer afford
to give us part-time service."
NU Receives J
26 Defense
The University will receive
26 National Fellowships in six
graduate areas this year, an
increase of 16 over those re
ceived last year.
The 16 additional fellow
ships are valued at more titan
$100,000. According to Dean
John Weaver of the CJraduate
College, such a fellowship is
normally a three-yearawsrd.
The department which re
ceived the grants are eco
nomics, political science, 'en
tomology, physics and busi
ness organization.
Dean Weaver, advises all
persons interested in applying
for a fellowship to obtain their
application forms as soon as
possible. The University, he
said, must submit its nomina
tions for the Fellowships to
the U.S. Office of Education
by March 5.

"It is my belief that If he is

Kennedy also said he ex

Hoffa union to fall, once he
is out of office.
He noted that the head of
the transportation union has
more than 300 attorneys "who
do nothing more than try t
keep Hoffa in office", and
that any move to oust him

'Law Breakdown'
So far no jury has been
unable to convict him and
Kennedy blames a "b r e a k
down in much local law en
forcement and politics."
Kennedy also cited tha
"lack of democratic proce
dures" and instances of "or
ganized crime" in the Team
sters Union.
He said many officials in
the Union are elected in il
legal elections and by un
qualified voters.
The graduate of Harvard
and Virgin: law school told
how his committee found con
victed . criminals in high
Teamsters positions.
Second Rank
Kennedy maintained that
the Teamsters rank second,
only to the-Federal govern
ment in influence in this
country due to their control
over transportation.
"'Because of this great
pr-nnnmir control. Teamsters
have attracted gangsters and
hoodlums," he said.
He said the McClellan com
mittee proved 15 top officials
in Detroit had records for
armed robbery, arson and
other major crimes. Some
had been charged with mur
der. 'No Regard'
"These criminals have no
regard for the Union, but
work so that employers will
give business to their (the
criminals') friends." he said.
He noted arson, pickets and
other violences instigated by
the "gangsters and hood
lums." Kennedy also accused man
agement of much corruption
in labor today.
"Ninety per cent of the
deals wouldn't have been pos
sible without their coopera
tion," he said. He charged
that they often make deals
to gain economic advantages
over other competition.
Later, answering a Ques
tion why management had
not been called to explain
their relations, the boyish
looking investigator blamed
news media. . ,
Little Attention
He said his committee
studied illegal deals made by
firms, but that this phase of
their work received "little at
tention from the press." v
No Bar Association even'
management itself has tried
to remedy the situation,
Kennedy said. He commended
the AFL-CIO for its efforts to
stop management deals.
Kennedy also commented
on the inrant L.anarum-uru-
fin labor bill and told listen
ers he thought it would prove
itself better in a year.
No 'End-All'
He noted the bill had hail
a 9Q-day provision and had
actually been in operation
only a little over two months.
"I will not say it is the
end-all of all labor bills.
Kennedy concluded.
