EMU faculity group
seeks bargaining unit
By HENRY GRIX
In what may be an unprecedented move at a four-year
state university, a faculty group at Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity has announced plans to secure collective bargaining
w rights with the school's administration and Board of Regents.
Prof. ,Thomas Dodd of EMU's education school and
president of the university's chapter of the Michigan Associa-
tion for Higher Education said the group "is actively seeking
an election through the State Labor Mediation Board to as-
sure faculty members collective negotiation rights."
"The faculty would begin negotiations by considering
working conditions," Dodd explained, "but discussions could

Moves for a change started in
January, 1963, but the Dental
School was not actively engaged
until January 1965. Doerr said
the five year time lapse arose
from attempts to use "the most
democratic" format to bring about
academic reform.
The first two years were dedi-
cated to an evaluation of the old
curriculum. Questionnaires were
distributed to faculty, students in
the four classes, and alumni mem-
bers from the classes of '53, '56,
'59, and '62. Students comprised
and chaired the subcommittees
which presented their suggestionsj
to the Curriculum Committee.
The most significant change
will be in scheduling and selecting
of subjects. The basic, applied, and
clinical sciences will be integrat-
ed, instead of sectioning off the
first two years 'to basic sciences
and the last two to the clinical
sciences.

rcommendations
Contend use violates
:discrimination bylaw
By LESLIE WAYNE
The Regents yesterday declared the further use of binding
and required recommendations by sororities to be in viola-
tion of University Bylaw 2.14 which forbids discrimination in
student organizations.
. The Regent's motion, in effect, makes Panhellenic As-
sociation's resolution prohibiting use of these recommenda-
tions official University policy.
As official policy, all national chapters must recognize the
Panhel resolution as binding. Without this University sanc-
;,. tion, implementation of the resolution would be left to the
discretion of the national chapter.
"The Regents' action can only help all those sororities
that don't recognize ethe authority of Panhel to establish
regulations," said Ellen Heyboer, president of Panhel.

Any chapters not complying with
the ruling will not be permitted to
rush this January. Rushing privi-
leges are to be restored upon com-
pliance with the conditions of
Panhel's resolution.
At yesterday's meeting, Regent
Frederick Matthaei, Jr. questioned
whether eliminating recommenda-
x tions was the correct way to elim-
inate discriminatory practices.
"I don't want to tell local sor-
norties that national chapters can-
fnot have any say," he said. "We

ma ire-open
on Tuesday
SAN FRANCISCO (P) -- Presi-
dent Robert D. Smith yesterday
set Tuesday as the target date for
resuming classes at strife-torn
San Francisco State College, but
said, "We don't want to reopen
with a massive police force on
campus."
Smith closed the 18,000-student
college following a clash Wednes-
day in which striking students
threw rocks and bottles at police.
The incident climaxed a week
of violence and vandalism led by
the Black Students Union.
Smith told some 700 of the 1,300
faculty members that they must
decide whether the college can be
run as an education institution or
must be run "with clubs."
He acknowledged that he could
not be sure about reopening un-
til after a special meeting of the'
State College Board of Trustees in
Los Angeles Monday.
The Black Students Union
strike began Nov. 6 after the sus-
pension of Black Panther George
Murray, 23, a graduate student
and part-time English instructor
of special minority students.
Glenn S. Dumke, chancellor of
the 19-college state system, or-
dered the suspension pending in-
vestigation after Murray urged
Negroes to bring guns to school
and to "chop off" President
Smith's head if he did not accede
to an assortment of Negro de-
mands.
At the faculty meeting yester-
day, Dr. S. I. Hayakawa, noted se-
manticist and a faculty member
for 14 years, urged reopening of
classes even if it had to be with
police aid. "We must permit no
one to disrupt or dismiss our class-
es," he said.

and the university's decision-
making processes."
"This is a pioneer step for the
organization as there are no four-
year state supported institutions
in the nation presently bargaining
with faculty," Dodd said.
Although faculty groups at
Western Michigan University and
Northern Michigan University
have thought about seeking col-
lective bargaining rights, D o d d
feels Eastern's efforts display
"more organization than anywhere
else in the nation."
Despite the establishment na-
tionally of several "quasi-unions,"
Dean William Hays of the liter-
ary college says the establishment
of a faculty union here, or at any
"big, rather prestigious univer-
sity," is unlikely.
"Professors are in such demand
that they are almost in a union,"
explained Hays. Faculty members
are practically able to set their
own terms," he added.
However, professor Scott W.
Street, also of EMU's education
school, and a backer of the move
for bargaining rights, feels EMU's
"merit pay plan" prevents faculty
involvement in bargaining for
wages.
The pay plan allows the univer-
sity president and EMU's Faculty
Council to determine wages on the
basis of faculty merit. Scott wants
faculty to become involved in
defining teaching merit.
However, he said many faculty
members feel it is "beneath the
dignity of a college professor" to
unionize.
To discern faculty opinion on
the matter, Dodd said a faculty
"opinionaire" has been distribut-
ed by the organization. The survey
is polling views on bargaining,
matters of academic freedom and
involvement of the university com-
munity in decision making.
"We feel three groups on cam-
pus (faculty, students and admin-
istrators) should be able to sit
down and bargain on any and
all issues," Scott said.
EMU President Harold Spon-
berg declined comment yesterday
on the moves by the faculty or-
ganization.'

procedures but not against recom-
mendations."
However, Regent Lawrence Lin-
demer countered that "Panhel has
indeed ascertained that letters off
recommendation can be mechan-
isms for discrimination."
The motion was termed a "re-
iteration of existing legislation"by
Regent Otis Smith.
SORORITY OPTIONS
Under terms of the Panhel
resolution, a sorority has three op-
tions:
- Sign the Panhel resolution
stating they do not use binding or"
required recommendations in the
membership selection.
- Submit to SGC or to the Vice
President for Student Affairs a
copy of their national membership
policy showing their local chapter
does not utilize a system of bind-
ing or required recommendations.
- Continue to accept the re-
commendations as long as the sor-
ority obtains a waiver blocking
their use. All recommendations re-
ceived by the sorority must be
kept on file with Panhel as evi-
dence in case discrimination is
charged.
The third option is valid untilj
ah byaw in pon vtin sin
a sorority can amend their na-
the Panhel resolution.
The Regental action culminates
over ten years of efforts to elim-
inate discrimination in sororities
and fraternities.
JURISDICTION
In 1958, following a refusal by
the Regents to suspend Sigma
Kappa sorority for maintaining a.
discriminatory membership pol-
icy, it became evident that soror-
ities and fraternities might be out-
side of the University's jurisdic-
tion.
A year later, the Regents ac-
cepted SGC's recommendations
that fraternities and sororities
should be recognized as student
organizations and thus subject to
all University policy - including
the newly passed Bylaw 2.14.
However, it wasn't until 1965,
when Panhel began to demand

Approve

tenure for
T SR staff
By PHILIP BLOCK
The Regents yesterday unani-
mously approved a resolution
giving tenure privileges to senior
staff members of the Institute for
Social Research (ISR).
The action is intended to im-
prove the recruiting of new staff
members for the institute, and to
clarify the "faculty perogatives"
open to the senior staff.
University President Robben W.
Fleming said the need for tenure
provisions in this case was "much
more symbolic than real." He said
the tenure arrangemept was psy-
chologically" necessary to assure
the senior staff members that
they were on the same level as
other professorial faculty mem-
bers.
The new tenure provisions ap-
plicable to senior staff members
of the ISR include:
-Program Directors of the ISR
not holding tenure professorial
appointments in any other Uni-
versity department may be granted
appointments greater than one
year or for an indefinite period.
Program Directors, staff members
who plan and direct the individual
research projects of the ISR, were
previously limited to renewable
one year appointments.
-The Program Directors are
now covered under Regents Bylaw
5.10 which limits the reasons for
dismissal, demotion or terminal
appointment of a saff member.
--In the event of cessation of
funds from the, special sources
which support the salaries of ISR
senior staff members, the unen-
cumbered funds of the institute
will be used for salaries until they
are exhausted.
The Regents also passed a reso-
lution which requests the Medical
Faculty examine means of ex-
panding the school's enrollment
and to report these findings to
the Regents by their December
meeting.
Dean William Hubbard of the
Medical School told the Regents
