IHA Lets Houses Make
Own Rules for Conduct

Inter-House Assembly last nigh
voted 25 to 4 to give individual
housing units authority to make
all of their own personal conduct
rules after freshman women in
two houses recently abolished
hours restrictions. This is the first
time that freshman women in the
University have eliminated hours.
In Blagdon House, Markley, 55
of 61 freshman women have peti-
tioned to end hours. In Huni
House, South Quad, 26 of 32 fresh-
man women have signed a similai
petition. Parental permission is
still required for all women under
21 years of age.
SGC granted power to make all
personal conduct rules to, IHA
except those governing freshman
women's hours last month. Last
Thursday SGC clarified that they
considered: "the right of fresh-
man women in individual resi-
dences to make their own hours,"
not IHA.
SOC President Bruce Kahn,
'68, told IHA house presidents at
the meeting, "You are pretty
much free to go back to your
houses and make the policies you
"Out of Business"
Steve Brown, '69, president of
IHA, said that, with the passage
Df the resolution. IHA will be able
to turn its attention 'to serving
the students in social, academic
and cultural areas. Brown said
that he was "out of the rules
making business." He expressed
the hope that IHA was too.
Before passage of the IHA reso-
lution last night, Director of Uni-
versity Housing John Feldkamp
told IHA, "As far as we're con-
cerned, there is only one set of
rules-those formed by the ad-
According to Feldkamp, Univer-
sity housing rules remain in ef-
fect until they are officially
changed. The Board of Governors
of the Residence Halls will con-
sider abolition of freshman wo-
men's hours at their meeting at
the request of freshman women
in the Residential College. The
Board's recommendation will go
to Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler, who has fi-
nal authority.
"Not Important"
Feldkamp said freshman wo-
men's hours are not very import-

strict the behavior of students."
Feldkamp said staff will "counsel"

ously violate rules, Feldkamp said,

has the power to determine wheth-
er they should continue to live in
University housing and continue
studies at the University.
Disciplinary Expulsion
Assistant Dean James Shaw of
the literary college have indi-
cated that decisions on expulsion
from the literary college will prob-
ably be deferred until the Presi-
dent's Commission, on Decision-
making reports.
Feldkamp noted that in the past
only causes for a disciplinary ex-
pulsion from the University was the
practice of racial discrimination or
the possession of an incomplete
account with the University.
Ruth Gould, '70, Blagdon House
President, suggested that houses
amend their constitutions so that
all personal conduct cases are
brought by other means under the
Juridction of the house judiciary.
Students who have broken Uni-

versity regulations not passed by
students will be acquitted by their
house judiciarie. Feldkamp has
said, "Once a student has been
brought before a judiciary we have
no interest in him,"
In other action, IHA empower-
ed its executive board to request
the Board of Governors to add
three more student members. The
Board would then be composed of
five faculty members appointed
by the Regents and five students
appointed by the IHA Presidents'
Council. The chairman of the
Board, who casts the deciding
vote in a tie is an administrator.
This resolution will also be
brought before the Board tomor-
Before amendment, the request
included the statement that "fi-
nal authority for residence hall
life resides with the Board of
Governors," and called for team-
work between students, faculty
and administrators in determin-
ing policies and regulations with-
in the University.
Neither of these statements ap-
peared in the final resolution be-
cause IHA presidents felt areas
of authority were not defined.

Finance Act

Fear Restrictions On
Educational Potential;
Urge Court Action
Faculty Assembly unanimously
resolved yesterday that Public
Act (1967), which governs ap-
propriations to the University and
other state colleges, imposes "in-
sufferable restrictions on the Uni-
versity's educational capablities."
The resolution, which will be
presented to the Regents at their
meeting this Friday, encourages
the Regents to institute appropri-
ate legal action to challenge the
constitutionality of some provis-
ions of the law.
Houghton Meeting



ar Rsisters Return




It has been spepulated that of-
ficials from the University and
other state colleges and univer-
sites decided at a meeting in
Houghton last month to challenge
the constitutionality of PA 240.
Some Lansing observers feel that
the law is an infringement on the
autonomy of the University as
granted in the state Constitution.
As yet, no formal action has
been filed against the law.
Section 8 of PA 240 was found
most objectionable by the Assem-
bly. It prohibits establishment of
new programs or expansion of ex-
isting programs including pro-
grams aided by federal funds
without authorization by the legis-

A California superior cour4
judge last night issued an injunc-
tion against a planned anti-war
"teach-in" at the neighboring
Berkeley campus of the Univer-
sity of California. University
Chancellor Roger W. Heyns said
he would rescind authorization
for students and non-students to
use the Pauley Ballroom on the
campus for the teach-in.
A spokesman for the Berkeley
group said a "teach-out" would
be held on the steps of Sproul
Hall, the university administra-
tion building. The judge's injunc-
tion banned a meeting anywhere
on campus.
After an all-night meeting, a
march from the campus to the
induction center was planned for
early this morning. Spokesmen
said the group would try to force
their way into the building.
Documents Ignored
In San Francisco, across the
bay from Oakland, more than 200
men tried to present letters and

cards, to U.S. Atty. Cecil Poole at

Mrs. Ralph F. Kraker last night
submitted a five-page memo con-
taining her formal resignation
from the Ann Arbor Human Re-
lations Commission to Mayor
Wendell E. Hulcher and the City
Mrs. Kraker had informally re-
signed in an unexpected move at
the HRC's last regular meeting,
Sept. 19, after serving on the
commission for five years.
In her memo, she said that her
experiences on the HRC have giv-
en her "reason for frustration .. .
It became clear to me that a good
portion of the white community
does not understand what the
HRC is and what it is trying to
do or, if they do understand, they
do not approve."
Four Programs
The memo of resignation sug-
gests that the HRC must find a
way to communicate with "the

viduals, or an important and large
group, that he has standing in
the community, or that he has a
job which gives him the oppor-
tunity to reach large numbers of
people and where he can educate
those people to some degree."
-Advisory committees of four
or five people to be assigned to
work with all standing commit-
tees of the HRC to take on as-
signments from the parent com-
mittees, and to act as "sounding
boards and listening posts."
Other Venues
The memo also suggests that
"We must put more emphasis on
other areas of living than housing
alone. Many victories in open-
occupancy housing are hollow
ones if the persons we seek to aid
cannot earn enough money to pay
for decent housing. People need
jobs that pay a living wage and
they need to be included in this
affluent society through job
training, rehabilitation, and edu-

$1 Million a Week
Vice-President for financial af-
fairs Wilbur Pierjpont told the
Assembly that this would involve
approval of over $1 million a week
in proposed programs from the
University alone.
'The faculty," Prof. Frank Ken-
nedy, chairman of the Assembly,
pointed out, "is more effected by
this restriction- than any other,
group at the Univesrity. The
language of the act is so broad
it could conceivably mean cur-
riculum changes have to be ap-
proved by the legislature."
Teacher Evaluation
Strong objection wasalso raised
to the section of the act that
prohibits any increase in out-of-
state enrollment for schools which
have more than a 20 per cent out-
of-state enrollment.
At yesterday's meeting of the
Assembly, voting status on the

Sponsors of a massive anti-war
march in Washington, D.C., and
representatives of district agen-
cies yesterday reportedly were
"within inches" of reaching
agreement on issuing permits for
a rally and parade on Saturday,
Oct. 21.
A spokesman for the National
Mobilization , Committee, which
has been negotiating for the per-
mits this past week, said most of
the mobilization's plans would be
approved unchanged.
Hendri Van Cleve of the Gen-
e r a 1 Services Administration,
which represents police, fire and
other city agencies, is expected to
authorize the permits this morn-

negotiation session yesterday.
The committee- agreed t o
change the rally site at the Pen-
tagon from a mall to the north
parking lot on the provision that
the GSA would remove a wire
fence that would restrict ap-
proaches to the Pentagon.
The committee spokesman also
said an 11:30 a.m. rally at the
Lincoln Memorial would be fol-
lowed by a march directly to the

Pentagon. A second rally at the
Pentagon parking lot would then
be followed by picketing and at-
tempted sit-ins by those who
want to take such actions.
The national group has retain-
ed 38 lawyers and 110 law stu-
dents to aid persons encountering
legal difficulties. Legal informa-
tion will be available in Washing-
ton by calling 483-2150 or 483-
