Graduate Assembly last night}
agreed to sponsor a draft refer-*

appointed a committee to draw up?
the referendum.
Roy Ashmall, president of GA,
said that the referendum would
be conducted 'in early Novem-
ber" and that the results would
be sent to the Dean of the Grad-
uate School.-
The Assembly also approved the
nominations of Phil VanderWerg
and Jerry Smith to the ad hoc
committee to investigate the Bu-
reau of Appointments and Occu-

that another member would be
named early next week.

The board of inquiry was ap-
proved last week at a meeting of
the Student Advisory Board to
Vice President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler. Cutler agreed
to add six students to the exist-
ing five-member faculty board
established by the Regents for the
investigation of the Appointments
Student Advisory Board mem-
bers had discussed the function
of the inquiry board, which was
prompted by a list of 32 questions
regarding the efficiency and com-
petence of the Bureau. Cutler re-
portedly agreed that the questions
of the type "that any good ad-
ministrator should ask himself."
No decision was reached on
whether the meetings of the in-
quiry board were to be made pub-
lic. Cutler said that the decision
rested with Evart W. Ardis, di-
rector of the Bureau. Ardis said
he "welcomed an inquiry" but did
not say whether or not the meet-
ings were to be made public.
A major controversy emerged at
the meeting of the Student Ad-
visory Board on the question of
finances for the Appointments
Bureau. Cutler said that he was
not at liberty to divulge figures.
Members of the Board agreed
that the question of finances and
what is being done with the per-
sonal information compiled b the
Bureau regarding students are the
two major issues to be investi-
gated by the board of inquiry.

Larson and Wayne State's stu-
dent government have sent a letter
to President William Rea . Keast
"insisting"' that the administration
clarify its position on the matter.s
Suber said that in a report sent
to him by the Justice Department,
one of the implied reasons for his
denial of CO appeal was that he
had no religious preference.
"There was nowhere they could
have gotten that but from my
transcript," Suber contended.
Suber said he approached Sla-
by's office "and they said they did
turn over that information."
The FBI office in Detroit re-
fused last night to confirm the in-
formation or to disclose how many
times FBI agents had used Wayne
State's student files.
Suber further claimed that
Justice Department reports of his
'grade point, credit hours and
other transcript information' were
the sole reason for the denial of
his CO appeal.
In thefall of '66, when a similar
incident occurred at Wayne State,
academic affairs dean James Mc-
Cormick was quoted in the Wayne

As of 2 a.m. this morning, there
was no word on the progress of
the talks.
"The agreement between the
company and the union is being

told about 50 newsmen at the Ford
headquarters in suburban Dear-
born earlier in the day. Newsmen
asked if the extension would be
for another 24-hour period and
the spokesman said "it could be
for more or less."
The spokesman said that bar-

United Auto Workers would not
meet with newsmen or see them at
any time during the blackout,

than four months before I realized
I was not infallible," Pike said.
As the church has declined, Pike
contended, interest in religion has
grown. He stressed the need to "re-
new the church while there are
still people to renew it with."
Pike bases his own belief in
the "element of transcendence in
man that distinguishes him from
things." He feels there is "a con-
tinuity of life after death and
that there can be communication
between the living and the dead.
In the world, man is "exper-
iencing as much eternal life now,
as he will ever experience," Pike
said. "The here and now is as
important as the hereafter."
Thus, religion should be active
"where the hurt is," and should'
involve "doing truth, not just
knowing truth."

Allege Talk
on Contract
Associate Managing Editor
A group of 40 student activists
sailed into a secret meeting be-
tween a top Navy admiral and
University administrators o n
North Campus yesterday, and
broke up a planned three hour
'The students charged that Rear
Admiral S. R. Brown, director of
the command control and elec-
tronic division of the office of
Naval Operations, in Washington,
was in Ann Arbor to sign a $2 mil-
lion military ordinance research
contract. University officials flatly.
denied the charge.
The confrontation began when
15 students surrounded Adm
Brown and top research and en-
gineering school officials as they
lunched at North Campus Com-
mons during the noon hour. The
students fired questions at the of-
ficials about the alleged research
contract. After lunch, the students,
joined by 25 pickets who had re-
mained outside, followed Adm.
Brown, Vice-President for Re-
search A. Geoffrey Norman and
others to the electrical engineering
department's Cooley Laboratories
a block away. Parked at the front
of the laboratory was Vietnam
Fall's "Peacemobile" a large yel-
low trailer.
The students hurried into the
second floor meeting room reserved
for a film showing and settled into
the back rows. University officials
had scheduled, a three hour series
of technical 'presentation and
briefings for the admiral, as well
as discussions.
University officials asked the
students to leave the secret session
but they refused and demanded
"to see the, movies."
The' students charged that'
Brown was visiting to sign, a $2
million military research contract.
Vice-President Norman told the
students that Brown had not come
to sign a contract but for a "rou--
tine discussion."
However, the agenda prepared
for the meeting by the Cooley Lab
staff said that "Apparently he
(Brown) is interested in initiating
some sponsored research pro-
grams." It added that "the pur-
pose of this meeting is to exchange
information concerning his de-
partment's research requirements
and our areas of research interest."
When the students refused to
leave, the University officials call-
ed off the meetings at Cooley.
Brown was reportedly then taken
to the University's Willow Run
Laboratories at Ypsilanti, where
the school does the bulk of its
classified military research. How-
ever, the majority of the presenta-
tion scheduled for Cooley was re-
portedly cancelled.
Willow run Director Rune Evald-
son said that "Brown came here
to discuss the future of integrated
electronic circuits." He denied
that Brown had come 'to disctss
military ordinance contracts, but
said that "some of his interests
are, of course, classified ones."
Earlier, Vice-President Norman
told the student protesters that
the classified research discussions
were aimed at peaceful purposes.
