New Title
In a slight restructuring, Nie-
huss' successor will be given a dif-
ferent title and broadened respon-
sibilities. A tight lid of secrecy has
surrounded selection of the new
man, an educator from a non-
Michigan university currently on
leave to work in Washington.
Vice President and Chief Finan-
cial Officer Wilbur K. Pierpont has
also reportedly won a major vic-
tory on his request for a state cir-
cuit court appeal regarding Public
Act 379. By a vote of 6-2, the Re-
gents are endorsing Pierpont's re-
quest to challenge the law which
requires the school to bargain col-
lectively with unions.
President Robben W. Fleming
is reportedly opposed to the court
challenge. A nationally known
labor mediator, Fleming has ad-
vised the Regents he thinks the
University will lose the court suit.

Restless Vail Demands
Equal Time front FCC
As 45 University students in the Vail Cooperative house
dining room gorged themselves on potato chips and coke Wednes-
day night, President Johnson's distinguished voice blared over
-the TV set, lauding the nation's abundance of cars, TV's, and
colleges, in that order.
Suddenly the President inquired, "Why, then, all this rest-
lessness?" A student choked on his Frito.
"Why, that means us!" a girl at the other end of the table
screamed. "He's asking us a question, so let's answer it."
Twenty residents chipped in to send telegrams to the Federal
Communications Commission, the three major TV networks,
and the two major news services.
Their statement ran, "We, the Representatives of the Rest-
less (ROR) demand equal air time to present our perspectives
of the state of the union."
The Associated Press was on the alert. Within hours a 25-
inch string of paper titled "Equal Time" was gurbling out ofj
AP machines all over the country. CBS rushed in a camera crew t
to televise the "ROR".
One of the five students who signed the telegram, Walter f
Shapiro, '69, blurted out, "Well, how else can you respond to
a speech as absurd as the President's but by demanding equal
air time?"

University President Robbe:

the speakers to the issues involved
' -hours and visitation. Fleming
s said afterward that "The meet-;
ing went pretty well. Some people
is used it as a political platform,
n but it was a useful kind of ex-
d perience."
ly One Regent remarked following
e the meeting that "it was like
- something off-Broadway." Two
al Panhellenic alumnae told Flem-
ir ing that "we really enjoyed this,"
- and another Regent complimented
s the President, telling him that
d "you were very funny this after-
" noon,"
As a representative of Univer-
sity-owned and University-related
housing Feldkamp reiterated his
d support of the Board of Governors'
n decision. He reviewed the progres-
sion of the liberalization of wo-
f men's hours from changing the
ecurfew for all women from 10:30
to midnight in 1958, to the elimin-
- ation of sophomore women's hours
f last year.
yer.Good Efforts
He assured the Regents that "with
t he lessening of restrictions we
havedmade concerted efforts to
provide positive sup ports through
Sprograms and personnel."
o! Braun, representing the Board
of Governors, addressed the Re-
d gents as members of his own gen-
- eration explaining to them that
modern students take "a critical
stance towards the status quo.
This is hard for us to accept, but
it is necessary to initiate reason-
g able changes."
a He then outlined the steps the;
a Board of Governors took in reach-
ning their decision. After consider-
s ing the "mature, proper requests

Upon comparing the requests
with the "flesh and blood" real-
ities, they found that an "over-
whelming majority of the students
were anxious and determined "to
establish rules governing their own
s lives.
r He also expressed the belief that
not many houses would drastically
e change their policies. Admitting
e that there would be violations of
t any rules, old or new, he said
g this does not mean everyone would

New Dental School Faces Fund Cutback

The new $17.3 million dental
school should open the first of
0 four new buildings a year from
now, but University officials are
not yet sure they will have the
money to staff all of it.
Originally, Dean William Mann
of the dental school said he need-
ed $1.07 million more than his
current annual budget of $1.85
million to hire the new staff the
school will require during its first
fiscal year of operation. However,
he had to cut that increase figure
almost in half when the State

fices, a library and the Kellogg
building annex. Plans call for in-
creasing the enrollment from 213
to 307, and as a result, the staff
size would double.
State appropriations of $11.3
million and grants of $6.03 mil-
lion from the Kellogg Foundation
and the federal governnent have
assured that the physical plant
will be completed, but until the
Legislature passes the 1968-69
budget, there will be no assurance
the new school will be adequately;

when it will operate only half of
that year. But, according to Asso-
ciate Dean Robert E. Doerr,
"There's a great shortage of den-
tal teachers and researchers, andf
we need lead time to find and
hire the new staff."
Nevertheless, University offi-
cials have conceded that the den-
tal school can function adequate-
ly for the first six months with
only half of the $1.07 million in-
crease. They are, however, "very
reluctant to go below that figure
