at the conference, which will
conclude today.
The demonstrators were arrest-
ed after entering the building
and disrupting a conference in
progress by yelling anti-war and
anti-war research slogans. They
are being held by the Detroit Po-
lice Department's Special Inves-
tigation Bureau (SIB).
According to a Detroit legal aid

of whom were Wayne State stu-

According to Director of Uni-
versity Extension Services Ever-
ett Soop, the University shares
joint tenancy of the Rackham
extension with the Engineering
Society of Detroit. The facility,{
he said, is used by many organ- 4
izations for meetings and confer-
ences- not necessarily sponsored
by either tenant.

"My general point of view about
administration is that there is
nothing inevitable about a schism'
between faculty and administra-
tion," said President-designate
Robben W. Fleming last night,
speaking to approximately forty
members of the University chap-
ter of the American Association of
University Professors.
In the informal address given in
the Rackham Bldg., Fleming spoke:
briefly on problems of determining
priorities for University growth,
faculty - administrative relation-
ships and the allocation of re-

Fleming admitted that sufficient
faculty involvement in decision
making was not a simple pro-
cedure, but said that "I simply
do not accept the 'we-they' phil-
osophy. Involvement is not al-.

operate from the base that it
Commenting on the complexi-
ties of university organization,
Fleming said, "I think of myself
as an institutionalist in the old

in accordance with the traditions

and precedents of the university
"Administrators can sometimes+
get so involved that they simply
forget to consult some people who
should have been consulted. In
that case, I think those people
should speak up," he said.
When the meeting was openedl
for discussion, Prof. Carl Cohen
of the philosophy department
raised the question of the stu-
dent's role in decision making.
Fleming commented that "I
think students do have a role to
play in the decision making pro-
cess. We too often assume that a
student or a faculty member will
be too bound by the environment

university statesman."

priorities for University growth,

of the occupants wrote on a post
