The controversy over the pledg-
ing of a Negro by the Albion Col-
lege chapter of Zeta Tau Alpha
sorority, which caused Albion to
sever ties with its ZTA chapter,
has caused the University ZTA
.hapter to issue a resolution on
member-selection.I
The resolution, made public by
ZTA president Susan Southon,
tates: "We will not accept as valid
an almunae veto based on race,
creed, color, national origin or an-
cestry."

The matter stems from a na-

a girl may not be pledged if she

The official elimination of freshman women's hours is
expected to be announced soon, The Daily learned yesterday.
A University Regent revealed that Vice-President for
Student Affairs Richard L. Cutler endorsed the policy to the
Board of Regents at their closed meeting last week.
"There was no formal vote taken," the Regent explained.
"but there were no objections. Cutler was favorable to it
himself. I'm surprised it hasn't been announced yet."
Robert Hughes, assistant to Director of University Hous-
ing John Feldkamp, said that "the decision when to imple-
ment the policy rests with
Vice-President Cutler." .'$:*:

Monday night a similar protest
was conducted in Frederick House,
upholding students' right to make

Resident advisors from three
houses were recruited to police the
rooms. Frederick resident Paul

the advisors leave his room, in

quires that certain courses be
taken in a specified order.
"We have tried to develop the
eight 'core' courses as if they
were a single course," Rewoldt
says. "This will make teaching
much more effective, because the
instructors will know exactly
what their students' background
is. Under the old program, when
required courses could be taken
in any order, it was impossible
to assume that students in my
marketing course, for example,
had ever heard about probability
theory or knew anything aboutI
the behavioral sciences."{
Another major innovation is a
change in emphasis from tradi-
tional fields, such as accounting
and business law, to new inter-
disciplinary studies. Specifically;
three new courses, "none of them
within the traditional depart-
ments of the school," will train
students to deal with "the inter-
relationships of various parts of
a modern business organization,"
according to Rewoldt.
One new course, "Analysis,
Planning and Control," will stress
such subjects as managerial ac-
counting, operations research and
capital budgeting. Computer use
will be central to the;course.

No Comment
Cutler was out of town yester-
day and unavailable for comment.
A letter will be sent to the
parents of all freshman women
"explaining the new regulations,"
Director of University Housing
John C. Feldkamp said last
night. Feldkamp said that Hughes
was drafting the letter, which was
planned in anticipation of the de-
cision to eliminate freshman wo-
men's hours.
The letter will explain that
freshman women will have to re-
ceive parental permission before
their hours are eliminated, Feld-
kamp said.
Controversy
The action climaxes a month-
long controversy touched off when
Student-- Government Council
voted Oct. 12 to recognize "the
right of freshman women in in-
dividual residences to make their
own hours,"
SGC called for an immediate
vote of the freshman women in
their individual residences to de-
termine hours policy. Feldkamp
said that with the new policy,
freshman women who had obtain-
ed parental permission would.
have no hours, regardless of a
vote within their residence unit.
"Students should realize that SGC
doesn't make rules," Feldkamp
said.
Powerless
"I'm glad they realize that they
are powerless to enforce Univer-
sity regulations on students," SGC
president Bruce Kahn, '68, said
last night. Other SGC members
described the action as a "face-
saving move."
The original move came in
response to a resolution passed by
Blagdon House of Markley Hall
a month ago which eliminated the
provision for punishment of cur-
few violations from Blagdon's
regulations.
At that time, Feldkamp said "It
has been residence hall staff
policy since early last year not
to get involved in types of dis-
ciplinary action where students
have passed rules . . . This in-
cludes hours."

Marijuana
Story Writer
A former University student who
wrote two articles in "Gargoyle"
on Ann Arbor marijuana inves-
tigation was arrested Monday by
city police for breaking probation.
The "Gargoyle" articles were
listed among the charges against
Steven B. Combes as "anti-social
conduct" forbidden by his proba-
tion contract.
The last time a similar occurrence
took place in Ann Arbor, author
John Rosevear was arrested for
growing marijuana while doing
research for his book, "Pot." Rose-
vear, whose book is now being
marketed nationally. served a
nine-month jail term for his extra-
legal endeavors.
Combes served 5%/2 months in
the Washtenaw County Jail earlier
this year and was placed on five
year probation for possession of
marijuana.
The articles, "But We Must" and
"My Dog Is a Nark," tell of Com-
bes' own experience with police,
offer advice for those in similar
situations and describe local police
officers who work on narcotics
arrests.
The probation department issued
a warrant for Combes' arrest
shortly after "Gargoyle" appeared,
and he was arrested Monday after
a weekend-long search by police,
including the officers described by
Combes in "Gargoyle."
Police seized Combes Monday
across the street from City Hall.
A detective in an unmarked car
spotted him on E. Huron, and
alerted headquarters. Three of-
ficers rushed out of the Detective
Bureau in City Hall to apprehend
Combes, who was handcuffed and
taken to headquarters after a brief
struggle.
Combes attempted to swallow a
foil-wrapped package when his
handcuffs were removed. Detective
[t. Eugene L. Staudenmaler forced
Combes' mouth open with the help
of two other officers.
Police said the package contain-
ed marijuana and that Combes ad-
mitted there was "ennuh fnr five

Harris does not see the possible
five-year prison sentence for turn-

'The 5 years in prison could be

Harris emphasized the value of
educating inmates and not co-

"If 20 per cent of the people
wouldn't cooperate with the draft
we could break the system," he
commented. Harris said the 1500

ber on Dec. 4," a scheduled Na-
tional Mobilization Day.
"The thing is going to snowball,
but this is not the important
thing," said Haris. "We must not
only make the system inoperable
but make the sources of the system
in society inoperable."
Harris stressed that a person's
own life is his only weapon against
the system. "In resistance," he
said, "one takes his own life and
uses it as a tool against the state."
