Rockefeller Fleming Supports Call
In YR Poll By Chicago Committee
The office of the Vice-President
and Chief Financial Officer has
been restructured to replace the
former position of Vice-President
for Business Affairs. The post was
vacated last April when Gilbert
Lee left the University to assume
the post of Vice-President and
Chief Financial officer at the
University of Chicago.
The decision to revise the struc-
ture of the office rather than to
appoint a new vice-president was
made "to reduce the number of
vice-presidents in the University."
according to James Brinkerhoff,
director of business operations.
Brinkerhoff, who assumed some
of Lee's former duties adds, "Any
operation of this size likes to keep
the number of men on the vice-
presidential level at a minimum."
"Lee was given the title of vice-
president in 1966 in recognition of
the duties which-he had amassed
over a period of time," he contin-
ues. "No change in duties was
made at that time."
Under the structure which was
used while Lee was with the Uni-
versity, Vice President and Chief
Financial Officer Wilbur K. Pier-
pont's office .was divided into two
parts. The operations sections of
the office were administered by
Lee who reported to Pierpont. The
planning and policies sections re-
ported directly to Pierpont.
When Lee left the University.
his duties were divided among,
several of the remaining office
staff. Those departments which-
had been reporting to Lee began:
to report directly to Pierpont.
Under the new structure. the
office has been divided into sev-
eral functional units. The de-
partments concerned with busi-
ness operations are now under the1
direction of Brinkerhoff. The ac-c
counting operations have been

Spock's address came as the as-f
sembly neared the end of the sec-
ond day of its four-day convention
at the Statler-Hilton Hotel.
The session proceeding Spock's
address dealt with the problem of
formulating a statement on the;
Vietnam war, with the body split,
on the effectiveness of such a'
statement should it be issued.,
However, several delegates indi-
cated the drafting of a peace state-'

of the convention.

Spock said: "The cause of this,

related to war and peace. But

not, the question can still be dis-
There will be further discussion
on the proposed resolution today.
