'NOT CAPABLE':
Voice Demands
Cutler Resign
By DANIEL ZWERDLING
Voice-SDS voted Tuesday to request the resignation of Vice-
President for Student Affairs Richard L. Cutler, and called for a
student-wide election of his successor.
Eric Chester, grad, who proposed the resolution, claimed Cutler
4hias lost the confidence of the campus community and said his suc-
cessors will adequately represent students only if chosen directly by
the student body.
Voice chairman Karen Daenzer, '70, chai'ged, "Cutler has shown
himself to be unable and incapable of doing the job to which he was
assigned. Since he came to his job, he's directed it in a dictatorial
manner. A vice-president of student affairs should be responsible to
the students, and clearly Cutler is not."
Cutler refused last night to comment on the resolution.
Student Government Council plans to consider a similar resolu-
tion tonight which if passed

go through both the attorney gen-

By DAVID SPURR
Students and faculty from the
School of Social Work met Sun-
day with 25 representatives from
various community organizations
to organize opposition to a plan
to relocate the Washtenaw County
Welfare department.
The County Board of Super-
visors plans to move the Social
Services department to a soon-
to-be renovated road commission
garage on the outskirts of the
city. The offices are now in the
County Building on Huron Street.
The group decided the ga-rage
site is inappropriate because it
would be inaccessible to most peo-
ple on welfare. They also objected
to the condition of the building,
and its proximity to railroad
tracks and the Ann Arbor Con-
struction Co.

It was suggested that other of-
fices which deal less directly with
individuals - such as Civil De-
fense or the Drain Commission-
could be moved instead to make
needed room in the crowded
,County Building.
The group plans to get the
County Board to change its 30-6
decision by irifkiencing individual
members to call for reconsidera-
tion. The Ann Arbor Housing
Commission will -circulate peti-
tions and the Ann Arbor Minis-
ter's Association will bring up the
subject at their next meeting.
Picketing of the County Building
and pressure on the mayor were
also suggested.
Sunday's meeting occurred in
response to the County Board's
approval of the $325,000 remodel-
ing project. The county must ap-
ply to the state for $90,000 of
federal assistance. One of the
state's criteria is that the site be
accessible to the public. The state
has not yet approved the site, al-
though the county has promised
to provide bus transportation for
welfare claimants.
Michael Ehrliek of the social
work school said that the board
decision was made in secret ses-
sion, and that testimony of citi-
zens was excluded. Several mem-
bers of the board were invited Jo
the meeting Sunday, but none of
them attended.
The county has no format en-
abling welfare recipients them-
selves to take part in decision-
making, and citizens criticized the
board on Sunday for "never ask-
