Student Government Counci
will consider replacing several sec
tions of the University-written
rules governing student conduc
with regulations written by Coun-
cil, at its meeting tonight, accord
ing to Bruce Kahn, SGC president
The present code, "Rules and
Regulations for Students, Amend-
ed 1967" is issued by the Office
of Student Affairs. SGC severed
relations with the OSA last No-
vember in the wake of a sit-in ban
imposed by Vice-President for Stu-
dent Affairs Richard L. Cutler.
The decision to rewrite parts o
the code was made last year by
council after several newly ap-
pointed members of Joint Judi-
ciary Council promised tp enforce
only those regulations composed or
writen by SGC.
The new rules, if passed by SGC
will replace sections of the exist-
ing code dealing with false rep-
resentation, intoxicants, sponsor-
ship of public meetings by student
organizations, demonstrations and
regulations concerning men and
vwomen living in University hous-
ing.
The regulations from the ex-
isting code that SGC preserves and
the SGC-written regulations will
constitute the "SGC Rules and
Regulations for Students."
The role played by SGC in the
' writing of the existing code was
"peripheral," Kahn said. He said
the new regulations would be "an
assertion of students' rights to
make their own rules."
Kahn expressed confidence that
Joint Judiciary Council would
recognize and enforce the revision.
JJC's nine members are appointed
by Council on the recommenda-
tions of the previous years' mem-
l ers. JJC is the point of final ap-
peal for students involved in dis-
ciplinary action. . '
"A majority of JJC's members
were appoint'ed on a pledge that
they would enforce only those
regulations drawn up by SGC,"
Kahn said.
At least five members of JJC
remain determined to acquit stu-
dents charged with violating Uni-
versity regulations not made by
students themselves.
Cutler declined to comment on
the status SGC's revisions would
have in the eyes of the Office of
Student Affairs.
SGC will be considering at fu-
ture meetings the possibility of dis-
solving SGC or reorganizing it on
one of several models.
Ideas for reorganization evolved
from the dissatisfaction of several
SGC members with its own role
and from 'suggestions of a Nation-
al Student Association committee
at NSA's annual convention this
August. SGC sent six delegates to
the NSA parley.
SGC is also sending Executive
Vice-President Ruth Baumann to
a "Conference on Student Unions"
at Long Island University this
weekend. The conference will be
attended by several metropolitan
New York,, Washington D.C. and
midwestern schools.
SGC's operating budget is 25
cents per student per semester, al-
located by the Regents from stu-
dent tuition fees. In fiscal 1966-
1967, this allocation totaled
$18,000. The organization has re-

ceived this allocation since its cre-
il ation in 1955.
This past summer, SGC request-
ed over $50,000 directly from the
t Regents. Regents read the request
- at their June meeting and sent it
- back to the OSA for recommenda-
. tions. Budget requests are normal-
Sly processed through appropriate
- administrative offices before re-
ceiving Regental consideration.
There has been some specula-
- tion among SGC leaders that the
University will cut off the group's
appropriation because it broke
away from the OSA. However,
f sources indicate that SGC will
probably receive a University ap-
propriation for fiscal 1967-68 that
- approximates the $18,000 received
in fiscal 1966-67.
SGC is also seriously,'consider-
ing the purchase of a Volkswagen
, bus in order to give council mem-

nations
bers a greater opportunity to com-
municate directly with students. esagetroprunt 0 iom e
The bus would be equipped with
coffee and doughnuts and travel
around the campus seeking stu- T rea d esme
encouraging participation, and £ Td}e
providing information on Univer- ,rp

sity issues.
Beginning Friday SGC will start
to sell Visa membership cards.
Visa is a nationwide program
designed to benefit students by
giving them discounts at numer-
ous Ann Arbor stores. Membership
cards, which will sell for $1.50,
will enable students to receive dis-
counts ranging from ten to 50
per cent.
Visa currently operates at 150
campuses across the country and
membership at the University en-
titles students to similar discounts
at other participating campuses.

Refuse to Violate
Union Picket Line
By ROB BEATTIE
About 60 machinists participa-
ting in a week-long leadership
institute have moved their meet-
ings out of the Union to the First
Unitarian Church because they do
not want to cross picket lines of
striking skilled tradesmen here.
The leadership school sponsored
by the International Association
of Machinists and Aerospace
Workers in conjunction with the
University's Institute of Labor
and Industrial Relations (ILIR)
had been scheduled to meet in the
Union all week.
Monday's sessions were held as
planned, but when . the pickets
appeared Tuesday morning, the.
ILIR decided after conferring
with the leaders of the conference
that the meetings should be
moved out of the Union.
According to Charles Rehriius,
co-director of ILIR, the move
was made out of consideration forI
the machinists who did not want
to enter a picketed building.
Subsequent sessions of the
machinists conference have been
held at the Unitarian church
which has conference facilities
available. Those machinists who
were staying in the Union secured
other lodging for the remainder
of the conference, which coh-
tinues until Friday noon.

"We're trying our darndest to
stay on top of the situation," but
the "phenonemal growth" of the
community "makes it very diffi-
cult," N. J. Prakken, manager of
the Michigan Bell Telephone Com-
pany, said yesterday.
Prakken was referring to the
traumas the month of September
brings to both the telephone com-
pany and University students. Stu-
dents complain that the com-
pany's operations are "inefficient"

The University's change to the
trimester system has also created'
problems for the company. Because
therel is only a ten day interim
between the close of the summer
term and the first day of registra-
tion, "orders for a disconnection
and new phone orders come right
on top of each other. And every
order has to go through the cen-
tral office," according to Prakken.
The company hires additional
employes during this heavy period
and "we have night shifts work-
ing to get the orders through. We'd
like to do much better of course,
but we're doing the best we can."
Prakken said that the growth of
apartments in areas which former-
ly consisted of individual houses
has put additional pressure on
existing facilities.

cording to Prakken, continues itsI
attempt to "reduce the amount of
confusion and load of work which
accompanies students on their ar-
rivl in Ann Arbor."
A common gripe among students
concerns the length of time it
takes the company to install a
phone. Students customarily find!
themselves without a phone a
month after they have placed an
order with the telephone company.
"At the beginning of the sum-
mer we try to find out where peo-
ple .are going to be, so as to getI
advance orders," Prakken said.
"We g'et list of students from the

new digits to accomodate the tele-

I "There are 9,000 numbers begin-

is an addition to the University's
centrex system," Prakken said.
To combat future tie-ups, the
telephone company will construct
a new building to house additional
equipment and "expand services
for both the University and the
,ity," said Prakken.
