Abandoning a student-faculty agreement on University
judicial procedures, President Robben Fleming yesterday said
he would appoint a special tri-partite University committee
to recommend a new University judicial system.
Fleming cited as his reasons objections to the judiciary
section of the bylaw draft approved last summer by Senate
Assembly' and Student Governnient Council. He also said,
"Recent events have shown there are obviously problems
with the present system."
The Assembly-SGC draft would have given students the
option at some point in the legal process of having their case
heard before an all-student judiciary, such as Central Stu-

Fleming's a c t i o n 'yesterday
would postpone regental consid-
eration of the judiciary sections
until Oct. 1, the deadline given
the committee. Referring to the
Assembly-SGC draft, Fleming said
last night. "I don't see that kind
of judiciary emerging."
SGC members said last night
they had already made their pro-
posals for a judiciary system, re-
ferring to the student-faculty by-
law draft, and they saw no needa
for further study.
Dave Brand, president of LSA
student government, said last
night, "I think what Fleming did#
was to undermine the work thatl
a lot of people, did in formulating
the bylaws. Any further commit-
tee on the bylaws should be to ex-

The Assembly-SGC draft was
drawn up by an ad hoc student-
faculty committee and submitted
for approval in June 1969. T h a t

events" concerned charges of dis-

students involved in the Black
Action Movement (BAM) strike.
Although students were given the
option of appearing before their
college's administrative board or
a hearing officer appointed by
Fleming, all students charged so
far have refused to do so, main-
taining that only student courts
have jurisdiction.
Faculty members who are press-

to appear before CSJ, which has

Student Government Council
last night appointed student rep-
resentatives to the recently formed
University Council (UC) and Com-~
mittee on Communications.
SGC felt that they wanted the
two groups to begin work over the
summer because there are a num-
ber of issues which should be con-
sidered as soon as possible.
SGC had previously refused to
appoint any members to UC, say-
ing they would wait until the by-

fice of Student Services were ap-
A tri-partite body of adminis-
trators, faculty members and stu-

Regents at their February meet-
ing to make general rules for the

SGC also reconsidered their en-
dorsement of the SACUA-SGC rec-
ommendations to the Regents for
sections 7.03-7.05 of the bylaws.
(A motion to re-vote on the draft
was tabled indefinitely.)
"It is obviously a much weaker
version than the original draft.
It'll only stand in the way of
future negotiations and hinder the
policy board. There is no gain'in
keeping them on the books," said
SGC member Bob Nelson.
SGC member Bruce Wilson re-
ported for the bookstore policy
board saying that although it is
their. "goal," the bookstore will
probably not be open for business
until the beginning of the winter
term. It cannot be opened sooner
due to the difficulty in finding a
manager and in obtaining and re-
structuring the physical site of the
store in the Union.
Ip other action, SGC:
-Strongly endorsed the strike
at Eastern Michigan University
and condemned the "repressive
measures" of its administration,
-Appointed Henry Clay to fill
the vacancy on Council created
by the resignation of Dave Brand,
the new president of LSA Student
In yesterday's edition of The
Daily, SGC Executive Vice Presi-
dent Jerry De Grieck was( incor-
rectly quoted as saying 'that at
today's Diag rally, students will
be asked to "demonstrate support
for the granting of amnesty" to
the participants in the BAM strike.
He did not make this statement.
