California colleges drop

12-month program

LOS ANGELES (IP-Five years ago, the Uni-
versity of California regents and state college
trustees decided to convert their 27 campuses to
year-round classes. A study predicted $113 mil-
lion savings over 10 years.
They are now dropping the 12-month plan.
Few students were willing to attend summer
classes and, as a result, operating costs climbed
instead of fell. The change-over itself has proved
costly.
The reversal has dismayed professors whose
academic programs were reorganized from two
41/2-month semesters a year to four three-month
quarters. Many courses were restructured.
"We feel we've been involved in a great comic
tragedy," says Dr. Donald Moore, who directed
page three

the conversion to a 12-month operation at Cal.
State-Los Angeles.
Under the year-round plan, professors taught
only nine months a year. Some were required,
however, to teach in the summer.
Predictions of the $113 million savings were
based on estimates by the Coordinating Council
for Higher Education, an advisory group. Al-
though operating costs would rise $94 million,
the council said, construction costs would drop
$207 million because of the better use made
of existing facilities.
"The savings we envisioned were not realized,"
a council spokesman said.
The summer session already has been drop-
ped at the University of California at Los Angeles
Sirij

and the University of California at Berkeley, the
only universities to convert to year-round study
before the regents ordered it canceled.
Four state college campuses-Los Angeles,
Pomona, San Luis Obispo and Hayward-also
converted and will discontinue the program at
the end of next summer.
In dropping year-round classes, the trustees
and regents said summer attendance at UCLA
and Berkeley had averaged about 35 per cent
of the level of the other nine months and at the
state colleges it was about 50 per cent of normal.
Enrollment was too low, they add, to justify
the extra costs of running large institutions for
an extra three months or to have much effect
on the need for new facilities on the campuses.

"It may be that many find it impossible to
attend a full 12-week program in the summer,"
a UC official observed.
"There is a long tradition of students' earning
money in the summers," noted William Simpson,
an economics professor who succeeded Moore as
head of year-round operation at Cal State-Los
Angeles.
"The whole thing is ridiculous," said Moore
also an economist, "We go through a great deal
of effort, . . . and for what?"About $100,000
was spent in 1956-66 and $370,000 in 1967, when
the actual conversion was made.
No precise figures are available for the other
campuses because planning costs, officials said,
have been lumped into overall operating costs.

SECRETARY OF HOUSING GEORGE ROMNEY yesterday
urged Michigan Republicans to find and unite behind another
candidate, but would not close the door against the possibility of
his accepting a draft.
Asked why he did not categorically rule himself out of contention,
Romney replied, "I don't think any human being can know with
absolute certainty what future events will bring."
Michigan Republican officials meet this weekend to decide on a
consensus candidate to oppose the incumbent Democrat, Sen. Philip
Hart. The state GOP reportedly is reluctant to choose a lesser known
figure if Romney or his wife, Lenore, can be persuaded to run.
The former Michigan governor said that his wife Lenore is not
an active contender for the job.
"She will not be a consensus candidate unless they cannot unite
on someone else," Romney said. "Only in that event will she con-
sider ft."
THE U.S. COMMAND reported yesterday an increase in
military action by both allied and North Vietnamese and Viet
Cong forces in all four military zones of South Vietnam.
Nine Americans were killed and five wounded-the highest num-
ber of U.S. troops reported killed during a 24-hour period in three
weeks. South Vietnamese losses were reported to be seven wounded.
American military sources said they expect to see an increase in
enemy activity to coincide with Tet, the festival of the lunar new year,
Feb. 6.

THE NATIONAL COMMISSION on Product Safety identified
yesterday 122 models of color television sets which have been
exploding or catching fire at a rate above the national average of
12 per 100,000.
Olympic television sets, manufactured by Lear Siegler Corp.,
averaged the highest in the industry, followed by Packard Bell,
Magnavox, Sylvania, Philco-Ford and RCA, all of which had reported
rates of about 30 per 100,000.
The Electronic Industries Association immediately accused the
commission of creating an unfair competitive advantage for some
manufacturers by releasing the information.-"
Staff vice president of the electronic association, Jack Wyman,
called the problem of fires infintesimal compared to the number of
sets in American homes.
"Nevertheless," commented' Arnold Elkin, Commission chairman,
"we believe it essential that this information be furnished to the
public and that appropriate action be taken . . rather than risk
the consequences of fires in color television receivers."
THE WEST GERMAN producer of thalidomide yesterday
offered an out-of-court settlement }of $27.3 million for children.
allegedly crippled by the sleep inducing drug.
The pharmaceutical company, Chemie Gruenentahl of Stolberg,
made the offer in an avowed effort to end a marathon trial of com-
pany officials and scientists and to avert lengthy civil court hearings
on pending damage suits.-
The only precondition, the company's statement said, "is that all
further risks for the firm and the dependents will thereby be ex-
cluded."
The possibility of ending the trial through an out-of-court cash
settlement, awaits the approval of the prosecuting attorney.

no-kinock raid section
of pending drug bill
,WASHINGTON (UP - Senate leaders of both parties
endorsed yesterday a controversial 'no-knock" provision in
a pending drug control bill which would permit federal
agents to conduct narcotic raids without giving the tradi-
tional warning.
Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana and
Republican Leader Hugh Scott of Pennsylvania said the
federal courts would be relied on to issue warrants for no-
warning raids with careful discretion and to correct any
abuse of the new law-enforcement tool.

iibicoff urges student'
political participation

Both Mansfield and Scott said<
they would vote against an amend-
ment by Sen. Ervin Jr. (D-N.C.),
which would strike the no-knock
provision from the bill as an un-
due invasion of privacy.
The no-knock provision was
scored by Ervin Saturday who said
he viewed it as a flagrant viola-
tion of the Constitution's Fourth
Amendment protection against un-
reasonable search and seizure.
"We considered this very care-
fully in executive session," Scott
said. "We were concerned about
the right of privacy.
"We concluded that the fact
that the drug pusher can shove
the stuff down the sink and de-
stroy it-and does so in many cases
--outweighs his right to privacy:"
Narcotic distributors "are con-
tributing todmurder and suicide,"
he told reporters. "They are ex-
ceptionally vicious criminals."
"We are encountering a certain
amount of sob-sisterism' from
people who tend to weep some-
what excessively 'bout the rights
of the drug pusher and minimize
the effects of their dreadful trade,"
Scott said.

By 1776, three of the six presi-
dents of Yale University had re-
signed as a result of student pres-
sure. The one then in office was
the target of a student campaign
to remove him for senility and ar-
bitrariness. A m a ss resignation
won his departure.
In the next century, Harvard
would resort to summary dismis-
sals of students who had taken
part in rather vigorous protest.
One year t h e entire sophomore
class was banished.
In Virginia, students whipped
the chairman of the faculty, and
one professor, shot by a student,
declined to say who his assailant
was because of the Virginia code
of honor. "He died a scholar and
a gentleman to the last."
So began Sen Abraham Ribicoff
(D-Conn.) in a speech to about
340 students at Hill .Auditorium
Sunday as part of the University
Activities Center's Contemporary
Discussion program.
Ribicoff exhorted students to
go into politics if they were ser-
ious about the protests they made.
"Students should go b a c k to
their home towns, get involved
and r u n ~ for public office," he
said. "In the long run, that is the
most secure way of affecting and
directing public policy.
But he cautioned that politics
is not without difficulties. "Poli-
tics is the toughest profession I
know. There are always losses and
heartbreaks," he explained. "No
one wins all the time."
That led Ribicoff to one of his
few criticisms of students, whom
he generally praised.
"One thing wrong with young
people is that they quit too eas-
ily," he said. "They are too im-
patient. They want to win but
they aren't willing to p a y the
price."
"They think no system is good

that could give them Nixon in-
stead of McCarthy or Kennedy,"
he said, "but no single election
determines the course of the na-
tion."
"Reforms come hard," he con-
tinued. "You must go out a n d
work. They don't come by making
speeches on the floor of a univer-
sity hall."
He carried this theme despite

sts plans
By RICK SOLOMON
The Summer Internship in
Washington Program is making
plans to place a minimum of
thirty Michigan students in Fed-
eral offices this summer.
Under the general supervision
of the University Placement Serv-
ice, the Intern Program hopes. to
renew openings from previous
summer programs and to secureas
many new positions as possible.
According to Mike Posner, stu-
dent co-director of the program,
interest is the only criteria for
elegibility.
Co-director Betsy Levine invites
"anyone who cares about the fu-
ture of the United States," to
come to the mass meeting, tonight
at 7:30 in the multi-purpose room
of the UGLI.
The objective of the program
is to provide a challenging and
educational experience for stu-
dents in legislative and executive
branches of the Federal govern-
ment, says Posner,.'
ob opportunities range.from
clerical work to congressional
speech writing.
Because there are only a limited
number of openings, the Place-
merit Service has appointed a stu-
dent-faculty committee to screen
applicants. Applications will be
accepted at tonight's meeting and
evaluated by the committee with-
in two weeks.
Discussion of intern housing
and wages will also take place at
tonight's meeting.
"Ideally we will be able to rent
apartments or fraternity houses
for the students," said Posner.

T h e business administration
school is now in the process of
inaugurating a new associates pro-
gram to involve different corpor-
ations of the nation wide business
community with the school.
Corporations who join the pro-
gram will be sent research reports
and other publications of the
school. They will also be invited
to participate in management ed-
ucation conferences. Each mem-
ber corporation will pay a fee of
$2000-$5000 and up, depending on
the individual corporation.
Dean Floyd Bond of the busi-
ness administration school says
the program was inaugurated to
promote better relations between
the business community and the
school, as well as to raise money.
"The program is designed to
advance professional management
education, to develop closer work-
ing relations between the Busi-
ness school faculty and business
community, and to enhance con-

tinuing management programs
and to bring the University closer
to top executives in the state and
nation," said Bond..
The money raised from the pro-
gram will be used, said Bond, to
improve instruction, for research
and for anything the school"needs
that the state or University can-
not pay for.
Business school council presli-
dent Larry Stevens said business
students generally support the
program. He claimed t h a t the
business community, in the past
few years, has become more "pro-
gressive" than the educational in-
stutions and that he endorsed in-
creased contact with it.
Immediate plans center around
lining up about 25 companies to
participate in the program for the
first year. Eventually, the pro-
gram will increase to 50 compan-
les. When that point is reached,
the program will be re-evaluated
to determine its future size.
