backs student parity

The literary college Admin-
istrative Board recommended
yesterday that students be:
granted parity representation
on the board, and on the
board's hearing panels.
In addition, the board recom-
mended that authority to makel
regulations governing LSA student
conduct be delegated to a proposed
LSA student government, on all
matters in which authority is not
specifically delegated to the Ad-
ministrative Board.
However, the Administrative
Board failed to approve a section
of the LSA Assembly proposal
which would have granted judicial
power over non-academic matters
to the proposed LSA student gov-
ernment. Thus, there remains no
effective means for the adjudica-
tion of student-made rules by stu-
LSA Assembly, an ad hoc group
which is open to all LSA students
and which provides student mem-
bers for some LSA committees, has,
prepared a proposed constitution,
for an LSAbstudent government
which will be voted on by LSA
students during Student Govern-
ment Council elections next
The Administrative Board han-
dles disciplinary and administra-
tive matters within the literary
college. Hearing panels are set up
to rule on cases of academic dis-
cipline, disputed grades, and con-*
tinued enrollment.
The members of these hear-
ing panels are drawn from thej
Administrative Board.

Some 600 California Guardsmen were ordered into the

school's Chancellor Vernon I. Cheadle called "senseless, wan-

placed the university campus under a state of emergency.
Elsewhere in the nation, student unrest manifested itself
in other ways. Students who had been holding five buildings

SDS members picket
Lockheed recruiters
Students for a Democratic Society led peaceful picketing
yesterday against Lockheed Aircraft Corp. recruiting in the
E. Engineering Bldg.
Nearly 50 protesters carried signs and marched through
the hallway, where two Lockheed recruiters were holding
appointments with engineering students, carefully avoiding
any action which might be construed as creating a disturb-
ance or contention.
A large number of engineering students and seven Ann
Arbor police in riot gear watched the picket line as it snaked
down the hallway, outside,
and back down the hallway

Nearby, in Amherst, residents

structure could be used as a black

close of the Chicago trial, had
been tentatively scheduled to
speak at UCLA tomorrow.
He spoke Wednesday on the

The Social Work S t u d e n t
Union's committee on minority
admissions claims the Social Work
school's administration is "foot
dragging" on the issue of increased
admissions for Mexican-American
and Puerto Rican students, after
the committee met with Dean Fi-
dele Fauri Wednesday to discuss
this issue.
Dean Fauri denied the commit-
tee's claim. "It is the last of my
wishes to postpone the issue of
minority admissions," said Fauri.
"It is a serious issue and we have
to look at the total problem be-
fore we can make any intelligent
decisions," Fauri said.
Fauri did not make a definite
commitment to the committee's
demands at Wednesday's meeting.
He said the school is unsure of the
amount of funds available for stu-
dents and ongoing operations.
Fauri suggested that another com-
mittee of faculty and students be
established to study the issue in
an organized manner.
He set up another meeting with
the director of admissions and the
assistant director of admissions to
review the total minority admis-
sions issue as it affects blacks and
Mexican Americans.
SWSU is seeking the commit-
ment of the School of Social Work
to increase Mexican-American and
Puerto-Rican enrollment by at
least 20 students. SWSU also is
asking the school to provide finan-
cial academic assistance for these
students by Fall 1970.
Earlier this month, SWSU pre-
sented its demands on minority
admissions to the dean. SWSU
also requested that the dean sub-
mit a report explaining any efforts
made in the past year and any
plans the administration has for
hiring of Mexican-American and
Puerto-Rican faculty or adminis-
trative personnel.
In reply to the students' letters
the dean said the school is active-
ly involved in recruiting Mexican-
American applications for the fall
Fauri also told SWSU in his let-
ter that the school has not made
any special efforts in the past year
to recruit Mexican-American fac-
ulty or administrative personnel.
He said the school has had no ap-
plications for positions from these
two groups and they, have no de-
finite plan for giving special con-
sideration to the hiring of Chi-
cano faculty or administrators.

Many Ann Arbor citizens are express-

of legislation headed for the Michigan
legislature within the next month.

Michigan Public Housing Code and if

a major effect on landlords and tenants

made available to the public on a wide
basis, and as a result, it seems most of the

"The substantive parts of this bill aren't

Goldstein and the Tenants Union are
opposing the bill because they believe it
to be "against their interests".
