WASHINGTON (M - Judge G. Harrold Carswell's nom-

day as the Senate rejected a motion to return the nomination
to the Judiciary Committee.
The vote was 52-44 against the recommittal motion.
The motion, by Sen. Birch Bayh, (D-Ind.), a leader of the
opposition, was designed to kill the nomination of the 50-
year-old Tallahassee, Fla., jurist.
The Senate now will vote tomorrow on confirmation of

The Regents had requested
$278,000 in 1970-'71 for expan-
sion of the two-year uppergrad-
uate program there into a four-
year school with a freshman class
entering next fall.
While such a freeze would hold

President Robbens Fleming a n d

and Planning Arthur. Ross said
yesterday they were hopeful that
the Legislature would appropriate
the funds anyway.
State legislators were unavail-
able last night for comment.
The board decided to seek the
denial pending a study by a citi-
zens' committee "to determine ed-
ucational needs in the southeast-
ern Michigan area," and called
on the Legislature to appropriate
$20.000 for the study.
Board President Dr. Peter Oppe-
wall said yesterday that the board
was concerned about the role an
expanded Dearborn campus would
play in southeastern Michigan.
"Dearborn is not well located to
meet the needs of the i n n e r city
where the real need for higher
education is," Oppewall said, sug-
gesting that an entirely new four-
year institution might be found
Oppewall also said that the
board questioned the need for
another undergraduate school
when the area already had n I n'e
community colleges. Finally, there
was the question of eventual
autonomy for Dearborn, s o me-
thing which the board has sup-
ported at all state Universities for

branch of Michigan State, now
in the process of becoming auto-
nomous) it did at Flint and Dear-
born (both University branches).,"

Assistant Dean Dean C. Baker,
acting chairman of the adminis-
trative board, composed of faculty
and non-voting ;tudents, says the
board has not decided f it hasI
jurisdiction to hear Denton's and
Van der Hout's cases.
If students refuse to appear be-
fore the board because they. prefer
to be tried by CSJ, Baker said,
the Board will have to decide what
action to take. "I couldn't predict
what th y will do." he added.
Until the Rezents decide what
action to take on the propised by-

has sole jurisdiction over disrup-
