lr«nwo»d Dolly Cl*b«, W.dnwdoy, Jun» If, Resignation of MSUOfficial Is Demanded By JACQUELINE KORONA Aswciited Press Writer EAST LANSING (AP) -- A j member of the Michigan State University Board of Trustees has called for the resignation of MSU Vice President Phihp J. May in the wake of an attorney general's conflict of interest rul- "The day in which Phil May can b« of any value to the University is behind us," said Trustee C. Alton Harlan. His call came Tuesday, within hours of Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley's ruling that May's private b u s i n e s s dealings conflicted with his public responsibility as vice president for business and finance at MSU. T^ mn _ Harlan, a Birmingham Democrat and MSU President John A Hannah are subjects of pending attorney general's rulings on similar conflict questions. A spokesman for Kelley said those opinions may be expected early next week. Kelley cited May's interest in transactions relating to the IBM Seaway Traffi To Be Halted c RFK's Staff Members Don't Like to Think of Leaving Building building "in East Lansing. The was constructed by PU1LU411S TT«*3 ·**·*,- Philip Jesse Co., of which May s "' " is a major stock- wife, Viola, holder. . ., Kelley's 19-page opinion said the architect and contractors who built the IBM Building do considerable business with MbU and that "each of these contractors were hired by the Philip Jesse Co. without advertising for bids and without seeking prices of competitors for the same work." . The attorney general said that although the financial arrangements with the architect were "unusual and appear to have been favorable to the owner, there is no conclusive evidence that the fee was established at * particularly low rate." A conflict of interest ruling, he added, need not demonstrate that public official has in fact derived any personal benefit from his dual role of public officer and private entrepreneur "It need only be demonstrated that his personal pecuniary interests may affect his judgment," Kelley said. * * * He said May'* wife should not be permitted to continue hold- substantial interest in the Philip Jesse Co., but he added that "it would be unfair to penalize" "I am astonished at the ruling," May said. "I cooperated with the attorney general and provided him with all the information he requested. . . apparently he has distorted the facts to reach a politically conceived conclusion." May, on sabbatical leave through August, had no comment on Harlan's call for his resignation. "Faithful service is not enough," Harlan told a hastily called news conference. "If one makes a mistake, one must pay the penalty. "If I am found guilty (on con flict allegations), I will resign as a trustee and not seek reelection," he said, adding he plans to seek another term on the MSU board when his current one expires at the end o the year. Harlan said he previously had recommended firing May to both the board and Hannah with no results. * * * "I talked with (Provost How ard) Neville this afternoon an said I thought he should as! Hannah to initiate action," Maj said. Hannah was vacation ing in Canada until July 5. "I think this (conflict) dec sion proves Dr. Hannah has los control of his staff," Harlan added. May's actions are "Detrimental to the best interests of the total team" at the University, he said. Rep. Jack Faxon, D-Detroit, requested the opinion on May and Hannah The check into Harlan's activities was requested by Rep. William Hampton, R-Bloomfield Hills. Subject of the Hannah opinion are the president's business dealings, including the sale of a farm he had owned near MSU for a reported $1 million. Harlan's alleged ties to the Harlan Electric Co. of Southfield and Central Electric Co. of Lansing are subject of that opinion. Harlan said he divested himself of interest in Central Electric before being named to the MSU board in 1957. He gave up interest in Harlan Electric "about six years" after joining the board, he said, "and that had nothing to do with my office."

OTTAWA (AP) ~ The St. Lawrence Seaway Authority have announced that vessels will not be allowed to enter the seaway at St. Lambert, Que., or Iroquois, Ont, after 8 a.m. EDT Thursday because of the threatened strike of seaway workers. Vessels will not be permitted to enter at either Port Weller or Port Colborne, Ont., after 8 p.m. Thursday. The Canadian lock at Stault Ste. Marie, Ont., will not be open to traffic after 7 a.m. Friday. The strike by 1,200 seaway workers is scheduled for 8 a.m rriday. No vessel will be allowed to ie up at lock-approach walls during the work stoppages and only the Wall and Seaway radio station will be manned. Although the Canadian government was not expected to try to block the strike, a spokesman for Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau quoted the prime minister as calling the seaway authority's offer of a. six per cent wage increase "fair and reasonable." Trudeau was reported to have made the statement in replying to a telegram from Richard Greaves, national representative of the Canadian Brother WATERSMEET SCHOOl DISTRICT press aMte, *««* Manttewic*, would oppose Mayor Sam Yorty of Los Angeles in that city's 1970 election.

Someday all the papers and books will be packed. Then the people who work there will have to leave. But they don't like to think about that day. For members of Robert F. Kennedy's Senate staff, ties with the past are still too strong to permit intrusion by thoughts of the future. Melody Miller is a receptionist in Suite 3327. She had wprked for Kennedy since his election in 1964. "Our lives were always predicated on his needs," she said. "We're not ready to start thinking about pounding the pave- ment looking for jobs. We're not even ready to accept the reality ;hat we'll have to go to work somewhere else." Since Robert Kennedy died from an assassin's bullet on June e-two weeks ago Thursday--more than 100 offers of employment for his staff have been received at the Senate office, la addition, many members of Congress have offered jobs to individual staff mem bers. So far, none of the offers has been accepted. "I worked for a man in whom I believed totally," said Hugh McDonald, an assistant press aide. "Now there's this void, feel so empty. I just couldn't g to work for anybody else now. There has been speculatio this week that Kennedy's chie interview that /'friends" suggested it to him. "I find it very flattering," he id.

StatePlansto Borrow Funds LANSING (AP)-- The State Administrative Board Tuesday authorized the state to borrow $70 million to help meet tae first school aid payments for fiscal 1968-69. Some $20 million of the total will go for school aid advances in "hardship cases," as determined by the State Department f Education and the state trea surer's office. Treasurer Allison Green said !50 million would be needed for :he regular school aid payments because the date for issuance of those payments was moved from Aug. 25 to Aug. 1 this year by the State Legislature. "There will be only one month of income (in the fiscal year) before we have to pay school aid in excess of ?100 million, Green told the board, adding there would be only about ?50 million in the school aid fund at the time. Dr. Ira Polley, state superintendent of public instruction, sought the $20 million for advance payments. Issuance of such payments, he said, should be based on consideration of the local school district's wealth, cash position and alternatives to the advance. "The current situation is more serious than others because of the difficulty school districts are having borrowing against anticipated state school aid," he said. New Freeway Section To Open on July 2 LANSING (AP) -- The State Highway Commission has announced the opening July 2 of 37.9 miles of freeway in Arenac, Bay and Calhoun Counties.
