By ROB BIER
A special session of Senate Assembly will be held Thurs-
day night to discuss a request by Assembly's Student Relations
Committee (SRC) for an immediate moratorium on classes,
the suspension of all recruiting, and a University-wide debate
on that subject.
The decision to call the meeting came at yesterday's
meeting of the Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs (SACUA) where it was also announced that SACUA
will hold a special open meeting next Monday to discussIts
closed meeting policy.
During the early part of the meeting a group of about

Government prosecutors have

said there was a good chance the

calln mee eng ofAssembly this
week caine from SRC's request
that SACUA respond to the pro-
posal for a forum on job recruit-,

SRC formulated the plan at a
meeting last Friday. Their reso-
lution expressed concern over re-
cent incidents of violence in con-
nection with on-campus recruit-
ing. The unanimous action by SRC
came a day after 12 students were
arrested Feb. 18 for locking-in four
recruiters from DuPont Corp.
The SRC proposal calls for all
classes to be suspended while a
University-wide forum is held on
the issue of recruiting. The sus-
pension of recruiting was suggest-
ed, according to SRC Chairman
Joseph Wehrer, to avoid a con-
frontation with recruiters which
would destroy the value of such a
-debate.
Wehrer earlier had asked that
the visiting students and faculty
be allowed to remain for the pres-s
entation by SRC.
But after Wehrer's opening re-'
marks, SRC member Bob Hirshon,
administrative vice president of
Student Government Council, add-
ed, "We want to hear your re-
actions."
Several SACUA members replied
that they believed such an issue
should be acted upon by Senate
Assembly, not SACUA.
SACUA member Gerhardt Wein-
berg explained that SACUA was
only an advisory group to the
Senate Assembly. "Any policy de-
cisions and discussions are going
to have to take place in the
SAssembly," he said.

The Radical College, a recently,
formed coalition of radical faculty
and students, is planning to pre-
sen "educational demonstrations"
how U.S. corporations can pene-

the college yesterday asked Prof.

the Radical College be allowed to

According to Psychology Prof.
Richard Mann, Adams declined to
talk to the full group of profes-
sors, saying he felt the presence
of so many delegates from the
collge was coercive.thlf

but only to demonstrate support
for the request.
Adams said he would consult
with the administration and give
his answer today.
The college will meet tonight at
8 p.m. at Guild House to iconsider
further plans.
The conference is intended to

representatives from Dow Chemi-

The college has indefinite plans
for demonstrations against the
conference. Proposals for action
include an informational picket

imperialist literature, g u er ill a

ENAC chres governmnent
with 'environm1ental tokenism'

By DAVE CHIUDWIN
Unanimously criticizing the Nix--
on administration for "environ-
mental tokenism," the ENACT'
steering committee yesterday call-
ed for a clear commitment by the
federal government to confront
environmental problems during
the decade.
The group, which is organizing
the University's teach-in on the
environment March 11-14, also
agreed to co-sign a leaflet pro-
testing the role Dow Chemical
Corp. has played in the use of
dangerous pesticides and defoli-
ants.
The leaflet,, which will also be:

cratic Society and the Radical
College, is scheduled to be dis- I
tributed during a conference this
week on penetrating international
markets at which a Dow repre-
sentative will speak, and while a
Dow recruiter is on campus. next
Monday and Tuesday.
The steering committee made it
clear that while ENACT is co-
signing the leaflet it will not spon-
sor demonstrations that are ex-
pected for both events, and is op-
I oser to illegal acts.
The policy statement passed by,
the committee calls on President
Nixon and the Congress "to cease

"A budget which commits over
$70 billion to the Pentagon and a
mere $2.5 billion to the issue of

represent a half-hearted attempt-

that just $4 billion of the total

At the steering committee meet-
ing ENACT co-chairman Doug
Scott reported on a discussion he
had with Randy Davis, a member
of the Black Students Union.
Lavis had walked out of an earlier
meeting charging UNACT with
ignoring urban and ininority group
problems.
Scott said the meeting had been
'"congenial'' although he said
Davis had maintained that the
black students would not take
an active role in the teach-in.
"As we move out of the teach-
in, whoever continues to be in-
volved should be mindful of these
other problems," Scott said.

action. "The moratorium is pretty
good," she said. "But after only
one week, it's probably not too
effective. I don't know if I would
support an extended moratoriun-
but if the TF's have a good rea-
son, it's OK."
Some students found relevance
to undergraduate student concerns
in the teaching fellow complaints.
Bob Schorman, '73 said, "If
there is a cut in the number of
teaching fellows, it will mean
larger classes in the introductory
courses."
A few students were concerned
about the use of a class mora-
torium as a tactic in gaining de-
mands within the University.
"We don't really know what is
going on," Bill Jacobs, '73 said.
"Class was only cancelled for a
week, so it didn't make too much
difference. Nevertheless, teaching

Silence coats the library today.
Silence after last week's rearranging and dis-
ordering of books, and after Saturday's stink
bomb whose smell lingered through the week-
end.
Few seem particularly upset .over the antics.
Instead they found them a break from the
day to day drudgery and there is only sparing
bitterness.
The book disordering was undertaken by
groups of blacks last Thursday and Friday to
protest what they consider to be the Univer
sity's hesitancy to significantly step up minority
admissions. The stink bomb was left Saturday
in the library as well as in the Michigan Union
and South Quad by unidentified persons.
