LSA Faculty Plans
Session Next Week
To Consider Policies
The literary college faculty will
meet in special session next Mon-
day to consider a resolution op-
posing University involvement in
The resolution, if passed, would
ask the University Senate to "re-
quest the Board of Regents to
establish a policy prohibiting the
acceptance of contracts which
specify that results be secret ex-
cept those which justifiably pro-
tect individual privacy."
In other action at the regular
monthly meeting yesterday, the
faculty voted to amend its rules
to permit senior teaching fellows
in the literary college to take part
in college faculty meetings but
without voting rights.
Included are about 90 teaching'
fellows who have completed allr
work toward a doctoral degree
except the dissertation.
The faculty also called for a
"thorough rethinking" of enroll-
ment schedules for 1969-70. The
executive committee of the college
and Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Allan Smith announced
last Saturday that new enrollmentr
this fall will be 180 less than last
fall. The faculty set no specific

Ro-mney u'GhI"ances Down
But Followers Look
By STEVE WILDSTROM
Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON -- Most pro-
fessional followers of Republican,
politics these days feel Michigan
Gov. George Romney has at best
a fighting chance of winning the
1968 GOP presidential nomina-
At least one small group of
pros, however, violently disagrees
with this consensus. Under the
direction of former GOP Nation-
al Chairman Leonard A. Hall,
staff members of the national
refuse, at least publicly, to even
consider the possibility that any-
one but George Romney could
become the party's standards
The first public test of Rom-
ney's appeal as a national candi-
date is rapidly approaching in the
form of the March 12 New Hamp-
shire primary. Early public opin-
ion polls in the state showed
Romney trailing former Vice-
President Richard M. Nixon as
badly as 3-1.
Romney and Nixon are the
leading candidates in a primary
field which includes Florida Gov.'
Claude Kirk and perennial can-
didate Harold Stassen.
According to committee staff
member Lawrence B. Lindemer,
former Wayne County Republican
chairman, a poll taken Jan. 31
showed Romney gaining on Nixon

sonal campaign in the Granite

have to win in New Hampshire
for him to capture the nomina-

think "it would be a final blow"
if the governor were to lose the
first primary. A 55-45 split in
favor of Nixon would be consid-
ered acceptable, he said.
