Football Coach To Consult Lawyers;
'Perturbed' Over Charges in Daily
Michigan State football coach Duffy Daugherty said last
night that ire is planning to ┬░consult his attorneys about
the possibility of filing a libel suit against The Daily be-
cause of a recent stcry which revealed apparent MSU vio-
lations of Big Ten rules.
"We work hard within the spirit of the rules," Daugh-
erty said lhst night. "It's omr whole life. Anytime you call us
liars or cheats we re bouno to be very much upset and
perturbed apout it."
Earlier yesterday Daugherty told reporter David Condon
of the Chicago Tribun of the possibility of a libel suit.
"Anyone who suggests I'm dishonest had better be able to
prove it." Condon quoted
Daugherty as saying, "I'll find "

A total of 34,773 degree, post-
graduate, professional and exten-
sion students are enrolled at the
University this semester, a drop
of 1,665 from fall term. However,
this figure is still 1300 more than
last winter, according to figures
released yesterday by the Office
of Registration and Records.
The College of Literature, Sci-
ence and the Arts reported an in-
crease of nearly 1100 students
over last winter, rising to 15,249
from 14,182. L S A enrollment
dropped 794, less than five per
cent, from fall figures.
Flint College increased from
910 last year to 1002. Social work
rose from 592 to 676, nursing
from 749 to 783 and public health
from 320 to 374..
Medical School Increase
Medical school, enrollment rose
from 1463 to 1518, including grad-
uate students in certain sciences
and postgraduate physicians.
Largest drops were recorded in
business administration, from
1262 to 1163, and education, from
3199 to 3149.
Business administration and
engineering registered the high-
est decrease rate from fall enroll-
ment, eight per cent. Business ad-
ministration dropped from 1271 to
1163. Engineering fell from 4531
to 4160.
Art School Declines
Enrollment in architecture and
design fell six per cent from 811

Winter term figures do not in-

Campus, where students are regis-
tering this week. More 'than 700
students are expected to enroll
Some 2698 of the total enroll-
ment consists of extension stu-
dents, a drop of 248 from last win-
ter and 71 from fall term.
The only other enrollment
which increased from last winter
was dentistry, which added 10
students. There was no change in
the school's enrollment from fall

"Bobby Kennedy was really recon-
sidei'ing his decision not to run about
ten days ago. If enough people had en-
couraged him, he would have jumped

Engineering Council circulated
a petition earlier this week pro-
testing the placement of any re-
strictions on meetings with re-
cruiters. Nearly 1400 signatures
were collected.
However, Prof. Carl Legatski,
head of the Ann Arbor chapter of
the American Institute of Chem-
ical Engineers and originator of
the petition, feels that not many
more signatures will be collected.
The petition aims to preserve
the policy that employers' repre-
sentatives, meet privately with
students rather than facing a
public forum. Engineering Coun-
cil decided to sponsor the petition
when the Student Relations Com-
mittee of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
recommended open forum dis-
cussions earlier this month.
The Student and Faculty Ad-
visory Committees to the Bureau
of Appointments unanimously
passed a similar resolution yes-
terday. The two committees met
in joint session in the Union to
hold open hearings and consider
the resolution.
Most Agree
"Most engineering students were
in agreement with the present
policy," said Wally Rhines, '68E,
president of Engineering Council.
Dean Gordon Van Wylen also
thought the present policy was
fair and added that he would be
willing to invite any company
representative to meet with stu-
dents on an organized and cour-
teous basis.
University President Robben W.
Fleming said he would bring the
matter before the Regents, al-

agenda for this Friday's Regents
