SGC

Incorporated: Legal

Autonomy at

By STUART GANNES
The Faculty Senate's Commit-
tee on Student Relations will
probably recommend to the Re-
gents that Student Government
Council's incorporation plan be
accepted.
SGC is asking the Regents to
follow the precedent inaugurated
in 1907 when the Michigan Union
was organized as a legally auton-
omous corporation under the su-
pervision of students, faculty and
alumni. .
According to the incorporation
plan, SGC would be organized as
a legally autonomous, non-profit
corporation whose purpose would
be "to provide an agency for stu-
dent partici'pation in the formu-
lation, improvement, and promo-
tion of the educational goals of
the University of Michigan."
If the legal status of SOC
changes to a corporation the
Council will acquire new privileges

and liabilities. SGC would be able
to purchase, sell and possess
property, solicit funds and enter
into legal contracts in its own
name.
It would be a legally independ-
ent entity.
The corporation would be fi-
nanced largely through an assess-
ment of its members - the stu-
dents. These dues are currently
being paid as part of tuition by
all students to finance SGC as
well as the Michigan Union and
League.
Any increase in the amount of
assessment could only be achieved
through a campus-wide referen-
dum.
As the proposal now stands, the
University would require member-
ship in SGC Incorporated as a
condition for admission and en-
rollment in any school or college
of the University.

The University would also col-
lect any dues for SGC incorporat-
ed as they were assessed.
The plan was proposed by SGC
President Bruce Kahn and Coun-
cil members Michael Davis, Grad.,
and Sam Sherman, '68. They say
the council as a corporation would
be provided with something close
to the adequate resources it needs
to act efficiently as a student
government.
In addition, they say, the Coun-
cil would have a larger degree of
freedom from administration con-
trol.
Sherm'an says SOC Incorporated
will "provide more alternatives
for communal action on the part
of students through their stu-
dent government without chang-
ing the recognized role of that
body in the University com-
munity."
When the Regents meet they
will have the recommendations

of Vice-President for Student AM-
fairs Richard L. Cutler and -the
Faculty Senate's Committee on
Student Relations.
The student relations commit-
tee, headed by Prof. Leonard
Greenbaum of the engineering
English department, has been
considering the incorporation of
SOC for the past few weeks.
In a preliminary vote two weeks
ago, the committee approved
SOC's incorporation by a 5 to 3
vote. The three dissenting votes
were cast by Professors H. D.
Cameron of the classical studies
department, George West of the
engineering college, and Irvin
Copi of the philosophy depart-
ment.
Cameron says he voted against
the proposal because "I thought
in was unnecessary, and although
1 don't have any serious obj ec -
ticns to the plan, I don't feel in-
corporation is the answer."

He adds that he felt incorpora-
tion really didn't solve the prob-
lem SOC has - be4ing more rep-
resentative of the student body,
and graduate students in par-
ticular.
"I really don't feel SOC ade-
(luately represents the interests.
of graduate students and it seems
unjust for them to pay SUC
dues," Cameron says.
However, the two graduate stu-
dents on the committee voted 'n
favor of SOC Incorporated. Grad-
uate Assembly President Stu Katz
says he feels an incorporated SGC
could be worked out which would
be equitable to graduate students.
He adds, "The dues question is
.not implicit in the reasons for
incorporating SOC."
West, xWho says he doesn't feel
very strongly either way about
the issue, explains. "I think there
is little to be gained by incorpor -

sting SGC on the basis of the ar-
guments advanced for it."
West notes that the responsi-
bilities SOC would incur "i-
pressed me as activities not con-
ducive to the education process."
West adds "I don't think the
Regents will appiove it anyway."
Copi. howeyer, is unwilling to
take a definite stand on the issue.
"I am still thinking about it," he
says, "and when the committee
reconsiders the proposal I will be
in a better position to make a de-
cision on it."
One of the professors on the
committee who supports SOC In-
corporated, Robert Knauss of the
Law School, said the independ-
ence gained from an incorporated
SOC "might serve as a basis 1.0
revitalize the student govern-
ment."
When the committee meets this
Friday it will make a final evalu-
ation of SOC's incorporation pro-

Issue
posal. Their r'ecommnenda tion will
be forwarded to Cutler who will
in turn report to the Regents.
Prof. Cameron notes the comn-
mittee's recommendation will
probably have little effect on the
Regents' decision since the vot~e
won't be unanimous. "It seems
~we will only be endorsing incor-
pora tion haif-heartedly," he says.
West adds, "our recommenda-
tion will probably mean quite
little to the Regents.
Whatever the Regents decide,
SOC members feel incorporation
is essential for Council. Michael
Davis notes, "Incorporation will
make a major difference in what
SGC will be able to do."
Davis concludes, "If SOC
doesn't incorporate under the
present plan, the University will
have to find some other way for
funding the council in order for
it to maintain its current obliga-
tions."

Elimination of maid service and

which were Instituted last fall.
Increases in wages and food

causes of increased operating
costs. Salowitz says expected in-
creases in summner utilization and
further cost-saving policies 'will
offset part of these rises.

By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
Referenda asking the University to end
classified research and withdraw from the
Institute for Defense Analyses will be on
the ballot in the Student Government
Council elections next week. -
The referenda will appe'ar on the bal-
lot next Tuesday and Wednesday along
with candidates for SOC offices, the
boards-in-control of athletics and stu-
dent publications, constitutional conven-
tion representatives and senior class of-
ficers.
,The referenda read, "Shall the Univer-
sity cease all classified research?" and.
"Shall the University cease being a mem-
ber of the Institute for Defense Analyses?"
Voice-SDS members and SOC candi-
dates, who have been visiting University
* fraternities and sororities to solicit sup-
port for the referenda, are pushing for a
large "yes" vote on both of them. In this
way they hope to pressure the University
administration into ending classified re-

member of IDA since 1959. It is a 12-
university consortium which provides the
Department of Defense with scientific

president has spoken againsf, classified

drawal from IDA. The candidates are
Mike Koeneke, '69BAd; D. Panther White,
'69; and Mark Schreiber, '69.
Koeneke says he is basing his whole
campaign on the classified research is-
sue. He says classified research is "against
free and open inquiry which is necessary
for the proper functioning of the Uni-
versity."
He says he is willing to take "necessary
action" such as a sit-in at the University's
Willow Run Laboratories (WRL) in Ypsi-
lanti if the referendum on classified re-
search gets an overwhelming "yes" vote.
Student concern with these questions
results largely from the report issued in

Schrelber says that in addition to other
factors, "non-academic criteria are used
in selection of the faculty and students"
who may do classified work.
"The results of the referenda must be
heeded by the administration," Schreiber
adds
Voice member Bruce Levine, '71, says
that as a corporate member of IDA, "the
University is legitimizing wholesale slaugh-
ter." He calls IDA "a front for the gov.-
ernment to slip academic types into the
military," and says the University's parti-
cipation "makes everybody in the Univer-
sity a member."
Levine sees the problem of classified
research as a non-political one. "While
war research is against my politics," he
says, "classified research is against my
concept of the University. "For example."
he says "'Project 1111 doesn't leave the
University any autonomy. The autonomy
is slipping down the drain.
