NORTH CAMPUS PROJECT:
ICC approves NC committee
Columbia radicals reevaluate
futurepolitics, protest tactics
By RICK PERLOFF
The Inter-Cooperative Councilt
last night approved the formation
of a steering committee to coor-
dinate all activities relating to the
ICC's North Campus project.
The new co-op is expected to
be ready for lodging in time for
the fall term of 1969. ICC is the
first student group not associated
with a university to receive federal
aid to construct such a building.
The cooperative, to be located
behind Vera Baits housing, will
The Washtenaw County Build-
ing Trades Council (WCBTC)
reached a contract agreement on
Monday night with the University
after eight months of contract
Details of the agreement which
covers 275 maintenance trades
employes, have not been an-
nounced pending results of a rati-
fication vote the union hopes to
complete this week.
Jack Wheatley, chairman - of
the union negotiating committee,
said he and committee members
representing University emnployes
of the WCBTC would "take posi-
tive action in recommending rati-
fication of the agreement."
e University's chief nego-
tiator, James Thiry, compliment-
ed the union on its effective re-
presentation of the 10 local unions
allied in the trades council. Thiry
said 22 classifications of em-
ployes are involved.

Union of. Operating Engineers rat-
ified its contract with the Univer-
sity September 12. The union had
been negotiating with the Univer-
sity since December, 1967.
The University is negotiating
another contract with Local 1583
of the American Federation of
State, County, and Municipal Em-
ployes (AFSCME). The union
seemed to be on the verge of a
strike two weeks ago, but talks
have been resumed and are sched-
uled for the remainder of the
Talks are still progressing slow-
ly. The negotiators are currently
going over the University's last of-
fer on non-economic issues. The
disagreements seem to be largely
in the area of wording and are ap-
parently not substantive.
The union, which represents
over 2600 service and maintenance
employes, will not take its eco-
nomic offer until the non-eco-
nomic negotiations have been

Vice presidents appropriate
supplemental funds for SGC
(Continued from Page 1)
the funds can be provided by the
student affairs office. "Their bud-
get is pretty tight," he explained.
Council requested a $7,000 sup-
plemental appropriation earlier
this month. SGC members argued
that appropriations - 25 cents
per student per term -- had failed
to keep pace with inflation.
However, the new appropriation
does not signal acceptance of this
argument by the University's exe-
Interim Vide President for Stu-
dent Affairs Barbara Newell said
the appropriation was made only
because of Council's present fin-
Mrs. Newell said the supplemen-
tal appropriation will have no
bearing on the consideration of

Council to request $40,000 for
the coming fiscal year.
He saidgthis year's major ex-
penses include $9,000 for office
supplies, telephone bills and sec-
retarial salaries; $2,500 to operate
the legal aid service; and $2,000
for Student Housing Association.
The recent financial crisis has
convinced many Council membef s
of the need to incorporate SGC.
This move, they say, would give
Council greater liberty in collect-3
ing and spending funds.
However, proponents of the
plan say it will be meaningless un-
less the University agrees to con-
tinue collecting SGC dues from
the student body.
IBM invites you to join an infant industry.
Big as it is, the information processing
industry is just beginning to grow.
Recently, Fortune estimated that the value
of general purpose computers installed in
this country will more than double by 1972.
Other publications have other predictions,
and probably no source is totally precise. But
most agree that information processing is
one'of America's fastest growing major
Every day, it seems, computers go to work
in a new field or new application. IBM com-
puters are working in such diverse fields as
business, law, medicine, oceanography,
traffic control, air pollution. Just about any
area you can name.
To somebody just starting out, this growth
means exceptionally good chances for
advancement. Last year, for example, we
appointed over 4,000 managers-on
performance, not seniority. Here are four

wasn't the only reason he chose IBM. He
says, "I learned that it's general practice at
IBM to promote from within and toipromote

"Another growth factor is the job itself," Joe
says. "During my first few years, I'll get experi-
ence in nearly every area of general account-
ing-Income & Expensle, Balance Sheet,
and so on. I'll be learning how the company
is structured and how it operates on a broad
scale. That's exactly the kind of knowledge
I'll need to help me qualify for a manager's iob."

Andy earned his B.S.E.E. in 1966. Today,

Andy's customers include companies with

Earl got a B.A. in Mpdern
Languages in June, 1967.
He's now an IBM programmer working on a
teleprocessing system that will link the
computerized management information
systems of several IBM divisions.
Earl defines a "program" as a set of
instructions that enables a computer to do a
specific jbb. "Programming involves
science," says Earl, "because you have to
analyze problems logically and objectively.
But once you've made your analysis, you
have an infinite variety of ways to use a
computer's basic abilities. There's all the
room in the world for individual expression."
Career areas in programming at IBM include:
Systems Programming, Applications Pro-
gramming, Programming Research, and
Internal Programming for IBM's own use.
You'll need at least a B. S. or'B. A.
