Voice factions
shelve disputes
Expected feud fails to erupt;
third group announces split
Feature Editor
A direct confrontation between leaders of the two war-
ring factions of Voice-SDS failed to materialize last night
at the organization's third meeting of the year.
Arguments concerning the basic differences between the
"Radical Caucus" and the dissident "Jesse James Gang" oc-
casionally surfaced in discussion of specific programs and
actions. However, resolution of the conflict which arose at
last week's meeting was not attained.

FLINT -Presidential candidate "
George C. Wallace swept through *
the state yesterday drawing the f
largest crowds of any presidential *
contender to date.
More than 11,000 supporters
crowded the Flint Atwood Sta-
dium last night as factories in theK:'

ting down because of a lack of
workers who were apparently at-
tending the rallies.
Earlier, 12,000 in Grand Rapids
listened to the former Alabama
governor lambast the Supreme
Court; 6,000 jammed the east
grounds of the state house in
S Lansing as he defied Gov. George
Romney's refusal to host him dur-
ing his tour; and 6,000 greeted
him at Kalamazoo as he told a
bearded protester, "You'd better
have your say now, because when
I become president you will be all
through in this country."
Throughout the state he re-
ceived warm welcomes, except in

Although it is believed dynamite was the explosive that

Acting Vice President for Student Affairs
Barbara Newell is moving ahead with plans
which would fulfill much of the spirit-if
not the letter--of the Hatcher Commission
The Hatcher Commission report com-

formation of a student-controlled "Executive
Board" which would assist the vice president
and act as the office's policy making group.
Mrs. Newell's plans include the creation
of a network of "operating committees"
which would assist the directors of the nine

use of OSA records.
