State board calls for halt
on Dearborn expansion

(Continued from Page 1)
tem arose during discussion of a
motion which said it is "improper
for this or any other faculty body
to act as a judical organ for al-
leged students violations of :ed-
eral, state, or University Ptatutes
and regulations, excepting of1y
cases which are unambiguously
In addition the motion,. which
was defeated, said the existing
procedures may be used for the
"unambiguously academic" cases.
Several members of the group
expressed confusion over the in-
tention of the motion, particuarly
the definition of "non-ambiguous-
ly. academic" cases. Some said they
believed the motion indicated that
the faculty should not have an in-
terest or responsibility for cases
such as class disruptions.
As a result, the group replaced
the motion with a resolution stat-
ing that "The free exchange of
ideas on campus, freedom of
movement, security from intimida-
tion, and the maintenance of or-
derly class-rooms are matters of
grave concern to the entire Uni-
versity community, students and
faculty alike, and both have a
responsibility to_ preserve those
essential qualities of academic
"This resolution is talking in
broad terms about a principle. We
are signifying support of a prin-
ciple-not saying we are not in-
terested in judicial machinery,"
said classics Prof. Gerald Else.
"It is understood' that the sub-
stitution resolution will lead to
the formation of some kind of stu-
dent-faculty judiciary group," said
Sidney Fine, acting chairman of
the history department.
History Prof. Arthur Mendel,
one of the sponsors of the initial
motion, said last night the faculty
did not understand the intent of
his motion. "The motion, if passed,
would have said that the faculty
will not take unilateral action on
non-academic cases. dt
"I' agree that a student-faculty
body should be formed to deal
with -such issues," he added.
Mendel ' called the resolution
passed by the group "precisely the
kind of statement as the one sign-
ed by 500 professors, which sim-
ilarly stressed something we all
agree with - in a panicked man-
ner which made it work as a law
and order demand."
Mendel was referring to a re-
cently published advertisement
which called for an end to the use
of violence in campus protests.
The LSA faculty yesterday did
not indicate what kind of action,
if any, \vill be taken to re-organ-

ize the school's judicial proce-
At the present time, Dean Hays,
the Administrative Board and
Central Student Judiciary all have
judicial powers, but there is con-
siderable dispute over who should
exercise which powers.
The judicial procedures h a v e
come under fire from all direc-
tions, m o s t criticisms centering
around. disagreement over who
should act on cases of a "non-
academic" nature and what the
definition, of a 'non-academic"
case is. The definition and juris-
diction of "academic" cases also+
is disputed.
Under current regental bylaws,
the literary college has the power
to handle non-academic discipline
cases. However, students have con-
tinually argued that only all-stu-
dent judiciaries should hear cases
of a non-academic nature.
The present system is supposed-;
ly a temporary one, developed
from old bylaws and pending,
change by the proposed bylaws
presently under discussion.
The LSA faculty yesterday also
approved a motion to ask Senate
Assembly to recall a tabled motion
which would set up a commission
to look into the University's
budget and help re-evaluate pri-
Linguistics Prof. George Lakoff
presented a similar motion to the
group, and Hays said it is likely
that a special meeting will be'
called this month in which the
motion can be acted on.-
LSA student government mem-
ber Rusty Kallenberg asked, the
group to allow students tospeak
at the faculty meetings, "especial-
ly as you are making decisions
about issues which involve us."

control might be more desirable,
he added that both Flint a n d
Dearborn had been gifts to the
University "and there is strong
feeling in both communities that
both wish to remain in the Uni-
Fleming also pointed to a simi-
lar situation in 1965 when the
Flint campus was expanding to a
four-year school and the Legisla-
ture made the necessary appro-
priations despite the education
board's objections.
Ross said the board had re-
fused to grant funds unless Dear-
born was split off. "What they
want is a deal where they m i x
educational needs with their
own political predilections," he
However, Oppewall said auto-
nomy "is out of the question now.
For at least five years it would
need the support of the University
for help. The possibility of event-
ual autonomy is a question which
should be faced now."
The state board says it will
wait for the report of the citi-
zens' committee before proceed-
ing on expansion for Dearborn.
"It would look primarily at the
Dearborn branch, but in order to
see where Dearborn would fit in
I suppose they would have to look
at the overall needs of the area,''
Oppewall said.
Dearborn was established in 1956
on a grant from the Ford Motor
Company. One of the few seniors-
and-juniors-only schools in t h e
country, it has historically h a d

difficulty finding students inter-
ested in such a program. The low
growth rate has made it difficult
to secure funds for upgrading pre-
sent programs, hiring more faculty
and adding post-graduate pro-
At the Flint campus, the op-
posite problem exists. Also estab-
lished in 1956, enrollment there
has skyrocketed to the point where
almost all existing space is being
used, and expansion has become
necessary to keep up with the de-
Last November, the Regents en-
dorsed a general plan for the ex-
pansion of both Dearborn and
Flint campuses.

graduate school, w 'a s appointed
vice president with the special job
