Two-Year Contract,

Ratified by Strikers
DETROIT (A') - Detroit public
schoolteachers voted overwhelm-
ingly yesterday to accept a two-
year contract, ending a strike that
has kept over 300,000 pupils away
from their classrooms for two,
weeks.
By an unofficial tally of 3346-'
374, the teachers ratified an agree-
ment that had been hammered out
in an all-night bargaining session.

"Student power is a reaction
to powerlessness. We have none
and we would like to have some,"
Student Government Council Pres-
ident Bruce Kahn said last night
in a discussion sponsored by the
Pilot Program in East Quad.
The other members of the panel
speaking to the 100 people present
were Ted Steege, a member of
Voice Political Party, the campus
chapter of the Students for a Dem-
ocra c Society, and Roger Rapo-
port, Edittc of 'he Daily.
Steege was not so interested in
non-academic rules as was Kahn.
He was concerned with the in-
dividual's place in the University
structure.
"Because of the depression and
World War II, the nation assumed
great powers to meet international
crises. It turned to universities
for people to fill positions. Intel-
lectuals, whose real goal is to look
for truth, have started giving up
their prerogative to freely criticize
society, as the Defense Depart-
ment controls much of the money
spent for research."
Steege said that his ideal for
students would be an "ivory tower
university" devoted solely to ed-
ucation. The students and faculty
would be critical of their own sup-
positions and would try to get at
the truth.
Kahn spoke of the problem in
more specific terms. "Students
should get the franchise. Right
now, only 1 per cent of the com-
munity-the administrators and
the Regents have a vote (in Uni-
versity decision-making."
"Last Thursday, SGC gave stu-
dents a voice by doing over the
"U' book of Rules and Regula-
tions." Kahn said that he hoped

The majority of members of the
Joint Judiciary Council, the high-
est student judiciary body, have
stated they would find a student
guilty of an offense only if he
had broken a student-made rule.
One method suggested by the
panel to circumvent the rule of
freshman women's hours was for
approximately thirty girls to walk
into their dorm an hour late and
march right past the women in
charge of checking them in.

Inter-House Assembly last night
passed a resolution recommending
several changes in the University
policy concerning entry and
search of residence hall rooms.
The resolution, introduced by
IHA president Steve Brown, '69,
states that "before a room search
is commenced, the ' occupant(s)
of the room shall be informed by
authorized University housing
personnel of the item being
searched for," and a written state-
ment naming the item shall be
presented to the occupants before,
the search is begun.
The present University policy
provides that "if the student does
not wish to voluntarily assist in
the room search, a search war-
rent may be obtained." The new
recommendations change this to,
"will be obtained."
The IHA policy also adds, "the

To Join Legal Battle
In Drive Against Bills
By ROGER RAPOPORT
Editor
The University will initiate a
court challenge of four acts that
it believes infringe on its tradi-
tional constitutional autonomy.
Among them are Public Act 124
(1965) which establishes state con-
trols over University constructon,
and Public Act 240 (1967), which
includes a controversial limita-
tion on the percentage of out-of-
state students that can be en-
n rolled.
The court challenge is expected
to be filed jointly with several
other state universities, sources in-
dicate. University President Harlan
Hatcher and his counterparts at
other state schools are expected

and exactly how the challenge will
be made. The court challenge is
expected to be filed in either
Washtenaw County (Ann Arbor)'
or Ingham County (Lansing) Cir-
cuit Court.
The University Regents reviewed
an extensive report on the court
challenge during closed session
here last week. The report was
written by the University's legal
staff after the Regents instructed

PA 124 is a capital outlay (con-
struction) bill which gave the
announced state controller's office new pow-

The University will also chal-

Other changes in the policy

settlements were reached over the
weekend in Inkster, Ecorse and
River Rouge.
Still undecided in the Michigan
school strike issue is the question
of makup time for school days
already missed. A state law ;re-
quires all public school districts
to remain open a certain number
of days.

The students, residents of Uni-
versity Terrace and Northwestj
Apartments, submitted checks for
the amount of last year's rent
only, withholding the $10 increase.
They contend that the Aug. 1 an-
nouncement of the increase was
made without "sufficient warn-
ing." They have asked a postpone-'
ment of the increase until Jan. 1.
The new payment was to begin
last Friday.

All checks in question were en-
dorsed: "In full payment of Sep-
tember 1967 rent."
According to a letter sent to the
students by Roy Ashmall, President
of the Graduate Assembly, "the
legal ramifications of this state-
ment appearing on the check are
that cashing the check (by the
University) is an admission that
the residents owe no additional
money for their September rent."
I Feldkamp said that the Univer
city is presently investigating the
legal implications of the endorse-
ment. He said the University may
be able to accept these checks as
