Feldkamp and Kahn spoke last
night at a debate in Markley Hall
;ponsored by Student Pilot Coun-
cil, the student government body
of the Pilot Project. John Lottier,
'68, associate editorial director of
The Daily, was also on the panel.

Unique Conflict
Feldkamp viewed the women's
hours conflict as "unique" in Uni-
versity life. The Regental review
of the Board of Governors of the
Residence Halls' decision was also
labeled unique. Last month the
board voted unanimously to al-
lAy individual houses to deter-
mine their own rules on hours

Resolution Prompted
By Dow Appearance
At 'U' in February
A resolution calling for per-
sons or organizations using Uni-
versity facilities for recruiting
purposes to hold open discussions
concerning their activities and
policies was passed by Graduate
Assembly at its meeting last
The resolution was prompted by
the announcement that the Dow
Chemical Company will be re-
cruiting on campus in February.
Th6 demonstrations which oc-
cured during a visit by a Marine
Corps recruiter last November
also helped prompt the motion-
ing, according to GA President
Roy Ashmall.
Ashmall explained that the
policy proposed by the resolution
would require recruiting organi-
zations to make their purposes
open to the University commun-
ity. "Organizations will be able
to express their opinions, and
members of the University will
be able to ask questions about
them," he pointed out.
Reflect on 'U'
"Organizations are using Uni-
versity facilities when they recruit
here," Ashmall continued. "There-
fore their actions reflect on stu-
dents and faculty who are a part

The award for "excellence in

been "plagued by the problem of
how to get students involved,"
Fitzpatrick said.
There are two students on the
committee, one appointed by
Student Government Council and
one by Graduate Assembly.
"Information on awards was
mailed to student organizations,
housing units and department
heads," said Mrs. Joan Ringel,
assistant director of student or-
ganizations. However, the response
from these groups was not very
good. I
"We should have a mountain of
nominations," said Prof. Leslie
Bassett of the music school, and
a member of the committee. "This
is a timely chance to give recog-
nition to teaching fellows who do
an outstanding job."
"Almost all of them will be
professors in a few years," he
continued. "There are gains to
be had in the long run as well as

policy was not designed to pre-
vent anyone from recruiting on
campus. "Everyone can come re-
gardless of their policies, but
they are required to discuss what
they stand for" under the resolu-
tion's stipulations.
Complete Spectrum
In debate on the resolution one
speaker pointed out that one func-
tion of a university is to make
possible the exploration of the
complete spectrum of viewpoints.
Because of this, GA adopted the
discussion policy for its facilities
and urged the University to do the

Gregory warned that America
had "better wake up and find out
how deeply we are racist. But we
are so sick and insane, we refuse
to admit that racism exists. We
inherited it."
Gregory combined humor with
serious social commentary in
pointing up the deep problems
this country faces. Unless things
change soon, he contends, "this
country won't last."
"We Negroes don't want any
special favors. We just want our
rights as guaranteed in the Con-
stitution. The white folks can
take the civil rights bill, and we'll

"You can call me 'nigger,' but

that it is an "insult to pick Chi-

Eleven Candidates Contest
Five City Council Vacancies

For 24 years the University of
Michigan Press has churned out
the scholarly tomes and detailed
monographs which gather dust in
obscure corners of the General
Library stacks. But things have
changed in the last few years, and

The Third Ward incumbent,
Prof. Robert Weeks of the en-
gineering English department, a
democrat, is stepping down at
the end of the current term.
The 11 candidates will include
,;nly two incumbents, a Democrat
and a Republican. Of the five'
seats being contested, three are
currently held by Democrats,
leaving only one uncontested seat
in Democratic hands.
In the contested seats, Republi-
zan James E. Stephenson will op-

the Fourth Ward. They are com-
peting for the seat being vacated
by Robert Jagitsch.

Despite the name University of
Michigan Press, only one-half to
three-quarters of the Press' titles
are by University faculty mem-
bers. This is not due to friction
between the faculty and the Press,
but rather to the specialized na-
ture of Press publications.
In fact, relations with the fac-
ulty are quite good. In 1965 then

the current list are elementary

Human "cocoons" gathered
Sunday evening to share a
drugless "high."
That is, a large audience in
Aud. D became part of an ex-
periment designed to present.
"Drug Alternatives and Com-
plements.' '
In what master of ceremonies
Prof. Richard Miller of the
psychology department termed
a "micro-lab" session, students
attending Drug Teach-In were
introduced to a new way of "ex-
periencing oneself and others."

"Let yourself experience being
in your own private cocoon.
Reach out and feel the inside
of it, explore the texture."
Once they had surveyed the
territory, he let them out of
their "cocoon." With their eyes
still closed, they were told to
reach out until they touched
down on a foreign hand.
After exploring the hand, stu-
dents were permitted to open
their eyes and talk with the
person they had "encountered.'
With contact thus established,
Miller continued, "Now we are
starting the verbal phase; the

process of knowing one another
began again.
"I wanted to plan an experi-
ence meaningful to a large
group of people, to involve
them," Miller explained in an
interview later,
"It was a. whole devejop-
mental process," he said. "The
cocoon is like the original pla-
centa, the quartets the family,
the octets the beginning of so-
cial groups.
"On another level," he con-
tinued, "most of the country is
in a cocoon. We're living in a
turned-off society. People are

unself-consciously. "We have
something beautiful-I feel like
I really know you, and we've
just met!" said one girl.
"It showed me you could stop
and talk with someone standing
next to you in the subway," a
boy later commented. One sti-o
dent went up to Miller at the
end and said, "It was the best
thing that's happened to me in
college." One group, that had
been strangers fifteen minutes
before, left together for P.J.'s
to continue "the experience."
