of Solving Student Problem; Gubow
Honored by Hart at Annual Dinner

' 24—Friday, June 27, 1969,

In a comprehensive review of the
problems related to the student re-
volt in the universities, Senator
Abraham Ribicoff, speaking at the
annual dinner of Detroit Friends of
Yeshiva University, at Shaarey
Zedek, Wednesday, - acclaimed the
approach to the problem by Ye-
shiva University.
Pointing out that "change is on

its way," that "the year 1969 will

mark a new era in university life,"
Senator Ribicoff warned that since
significant changes "only occur in
the wake of violent action" that—
"We must learn to distinguish
between the moderate and the
radical ... we must be willing to
listen and talk to students and
... to take, constructive action to
relieve anguish and anxiety," be.
cause "retaliations and threats
are no answer."
He said "we need the kind of
wisdom and foresight for which
Yeshiva University is famous, - and
he explained his commendation by
reviewing the Yeshiva University
action. stating:
"Yeshiva University President
Belkin approved a new College Sen-
ate that has been described as one
of the most ambitious and far-
reaching undertakings in the coun-
try. .
"This new body reflects the gen-
eral student concern for direct in-
volvement in the governing struc-
ture of the universities.
"The Senate, composed of stu-
dents, faculty and members of the
administration. will have jurisdic-
tion by a simple majority vote over
academic standards, admissions
policy, curriculum and require-
ments for a degree; establishment
of new majors and new courses;
determination of policy on stand-
ards of scholaristic performance.

system and academic honors.

"But Yeshiva is more concerned
with education than authority,
more devoted to sharing responsi-
bilities than fighting for power.
"And that is why Yeshiva was
not among the list of universities
that were racked with crisis and
confrontation this spring."
Greetings from Dr. Samuel
Belkin, president of Yeshiva Uni-
versity, were brought to the
gathering by Deborah Lea Hertz,
