"There appeared to be a mis-

The focus of criticism on posi-
tions taken by Locke took on add-
ed significance yesterday amid
speculation that he was the front-
runner for the post.

Assembly's S t u d e n t Relations
Committee and Fleming yesterday,

SRC member, said Locke "seemed

At that meeting, SRC members

however, Fleming raised objections
to the presence of two reporters
from The Daily.
After a 10-minute discussion,
the meeting was closed, and the
reporters were asked to leave.
Student Government Council Pres-
ident Marty McLaughlin, an SRC
member, left the meeting with the
reporters in protest against clos-
ing the meeting.
Locke said last night he felt
his discussion with Wilson had
been frank, honest, and open. "Mr.
Wilson showed a sincere concern
for clarifying my position," he
Locke attributed the confusion
to his lack of familiarity with the
issues and the praseology in Ann
Arbor. "The problem as I see it
at this point is that I was simply1
unaware of the nature of the pro-
posed policy committee."
