History Prof. Arthur Mendel
said the faculty was not going far
enough. "What was important was
to eliminate ROTC, not to improve
its quality," said Mendel. "That's
why I eventually voted against the
Dean William Hays said last
night that the decision to abolish
credit is technically subject to
Regent approval, but he added the
Regents virtually always accept
faculty recommendations on aca-
demic matters.
The student-faculty council pro-
posal passed yesterday specifically
-That a student faculty com-
mittee to develop a structure for
a student-faculty council; would
be established;
-That the council be a repre-
sentative, democratic council com-

posed of an equal number of fa-
culty members and students;
-That the council exist as a
standing committee of the gov-
erning faculty.
Classics Prof. Howard Cameron,
who introduced the proposal, said
the council would serve as a "for-
um for discourse between stu-
dents and faculty."
"The council would be an in-
stitution by which students can
sit and talk with faculty like
men," said Cameron, quoting a
student, "rather than play poli-
tics in the newspapers."
LSA Student Assembly chair-
man Ken Lasser expressed the
hope that the council could as-
sume "much of the traditional
work of the faculty", though the
faculty, under the current propos-
al, would retain final decision-
making authority.
Lasser said, the student drafters
of the proposal hope that the
council can serve as a p 1 a c e
where literary college committees
can funnel their reports before
they reach the LSA faculty. In
this manner a student voice will be
heard other than that of student
members of individual commit-
tees, he added.

Griffith said his offices chooses
to keep the shares of Dow be-
cause it is a good investment. "We
are doing what we think is best
purely from an investment point

Griffith recommended t h a t
those interested in changing t h e
policy work through Pierpont's of-

demands to the Regents.

But other than that, he says, it
doesn't really do any good at all.
What does do "any good at
all"? ,
Most of the twenty couldn't say.
"I guess nothing you do is go-
ing to help anything," shrugs one.
"There just aren't any alter-
natives," another says.
And still another: "Oh, I don't
know. I don't really think about
it much."

But some are still seaching, still
listening for a suggestion, a pos-
sible solution.
"If they could just do some-
thing constructive."

bowl observes, "The 60's were the
protest years. People aren't going

Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) met
with several students for over an
hour yesterday to discuss the com-
mittee's policy of closing its meet-
ings to the public, but no agree-
ment was reached.
The meeting came in response
to two attempts last month- by
students to attend the traditional-
ly closed meetings of the faculty
senate assembly's executive com-
mittee. SACUA Chairman Joseph
Payne said the matter, would be
on SACUA's agenda "in the near
Just before the meeting closed,
SACUA member Maurice Sinnot
of the engineering school, warned
the students present, "If you dis-
rupt our meetings from now on,
we're going to take legal action."
Payne said later, "There is no
promise of what will happen, but
SACUA is determined to carry on
its business."
Steve Nissen, '70, replied, "Be-
fore, we felt only a small dele-
gation was necessary. If it be-
comes necessary to defend our-
selves, we'll have to bring a hun-

In another decision, the Su-
preme Court rejected yesterday
the contention that draft boards
have no legal grounds for requir-
ing conscientious objectors to do
alternative civilian service.
By a 7 to 1 vote the court re-
jected the appeal of Vincent
Joseph O'Connor, who was con-
victed in U.S. District Court for
northern California of willful fail-
ure to report for civilian service
as an alternative to military
O'Connor had been granted con-
scientious objector status because
of his Catholic religious training,
but he also refused any one of
three civilian service jobs.
In a letter to his draft board
O'Connor said the Selective Serv-
ice law has no moral or legal
basis to require him to serve in
the armed forces and therefore
did not require him to do sub-
stitute civilian work.

On Feb. 9, about 15 students at- i
tempted to attend a SACUA rmeet-
ing, but the faculty group ad-
journed rather than open its meet-

group of students and faculty
members were allowed to attend

Relations Committee presented its
proposal for a moratorium on

and a University forum on job

members maintained that the na-

Law Prof. Robert Knauss said
SACUA spent much time discuss-
ing personalities while considering
names to recommend to the Sen-

divisiveness you have when you

that you have to close the meet-

The students disagreed, espe-
cially with Norman's last point.
They said while SACUA may notop
make decisions in many instances,
their recommendations to the Sen-

of weight.
