Student Government Council's threats
to disrupt Regents' meetings over the
bylaws issue seemed to have little ef-
fect on the Regents.
At least four indicated yesterday
such tactics would fail to arouse them.
Gerald Dunn (D-Flushing) said, "I
don't think it (SG:C's proposed action)
would have any effect. The open meet-
ing (dn the bylaws) scheduled for next
month gives us plenty of time. Rather
than calling for disruptions, they al-
ready have a vehicle for presenting
their views."
Regent Gertrude Huebner (R-Bloom-
field Hills) felt that direct action by
the students could affect the Regent's
decision -against the students. "Dis-
ruption," she said, "would upset the
swing vote," which might support the
Mrs. Huebner cited an additional re-
sult of the threatened action. "Stu-

unRm ovec
dents don't realize how actions like this
can affect public opinion. Even on
something like the recent appearance of
Timothy Leary at the University my
phone rang all the next day."
A flat rejection of SGC's threats came
from Regent Paul Goebel ER-Grand
Rapids). "It doesn't matter to me whe-
ther SGC does anything," he said.
"They're not going to get anywhere with
the Regents using those kinds (tf tac-

able for comment..
President Robben Fleming, speaking
about the bylaw draft and SGC's re-
sponse. noted that "this is no more a
final action than the two previous re-
He questioned the motives behind
SGC's action, saying, "For reasons best

Fleming explained that the Regents
had worked all day Thursday, Jan.
15 on the redraft. The Regents t h e n
asked Fleming and his assistants to
draw up the changes as they directed
which was completed Friday morn-
ing, the 16th, he said.
Final copies of the redraft were pre-
sented to four of the Regents before
the close of their meeting that after-
noon. The other Regents had already
gone home.
Fleming said that Mrs. Huebner,
Brown, Otis Smith (D-Detroit) and
Lawrence Lindemer (R-Stockbridge)
read the .redraft and agreed that the
changes were the ones the Regents want-
.Dunn, whlo was absent at that final
reading,hsaid last night that he had not
received his copy and declined comment.
Brown said, the section on s t u d e n t

authority over non-academic affairs,
which was deleted was not brought up.
"Nothing was discussed about it," h
Fleming said that he could not un-
derstand Brown's response since Brown
had attended all sessions including the
final one.
Speaking of the Thursday session,
where the Regents discussed the re-
draft, Dunn said, "We only talked in
terms of generalities and arrived at a
general consensus. We haven't taken any
votes on it. I think there has to be
more discussion."
Fleming repeatedly made the point
that the present redraft is not final.
"There is no intention. on the part of
the Regents to stop discussion," he said..
Like Dunn and Huebner, he pointed
to the open meeting next month with
faculty, students and the Regents as
one of the means for peaceful settle-

"The liberal arts school is
dead," says Prof. Albert Reiss,
chairman of the sociology de-

don't see the relevance of a

Reiss feels that the "missing

creation of a School of Applied
Social Science at the University.
The propossd school, Reiss
says, would be designed to help

funds appears to be the major
reason it has not been imple-

Applied social science em-

of sociology, social work, crim-
