GRAND RAPIDS (I)-A need
for more federal funds and better
communications among various
agencies working with migrant
farm laborers was voiced recently
in two days of public hearings .by
the Michigan Civil Rights Cpm-
mission.
' The commission was looking in-
to the plight of Michigan's 80,000
annual migrant farm laborers,,
several of whom testified at the
earlier hearing at Grand Valley
State College.
"I like nothing better than to
have my camp a showplace,' said
grower Robert Foster, "but it re-j
quires money."
Foster said, he agreed with
migrant testimony about poor
housing conditions and said grow-
ers would like to meet minimum
standards established by the
Michigan Health Department for
licensing. "But it costs money."
Richard Johnson, director of
the Migrant Health Program, tes-
tified 'there was a need for an
agency in state government to
coordina'te all federal and state
migrant programs. He said few
state agencies share or inform
other agencies of their work with
the migrants.
Neal Cooper, assistant chief of
Farm.Labor Service for the Mich-{
igan Employment Security bom-
mission said the MESC published
job orders listing wages to be paid
migrants below the state mini-
mum and said the MESC had re-
ferred the matter to another state
agency.

Voice Political Party, the local
affiliate of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society will sponsor. a re-
treat at the Bruin Lake Boy Scout
Camp this coming weekend.
The purpose of the retreat ac-
cording to Eric Chester, Grad, of
Voice is "to introduce people to
the Voice' perspective of radical
politics both on the campus and
in Ann Arbor."
At the retreat, there will be
workships and discussions on rad-
ical politics, the relationship be-
tween students and the University
the meaning of student power, the
draft and the problems of white
racism.

-Come in and see me if you have

It was the first time Fleming

The fund drive is named after
a University alumnus who is cur-
rently manager of the Independ-I
ent Insurance Agents of Mich-
igan. One of the highlights of Hil-
debrand's career was when he
published the first edition of the
Michigan Insurance Reference,
Manual in 1940. A group of Hilde-
brand's insurance friends, honor-
ing his commitment to insurance
education, named the fund drive
for him.

life was simple: "get into things."
He urged against spending "all
your time in pursuit of grades."
"The size of the University can
frighten a student," Fleming said.
In this unique and alien environ-
ment, he suggested that a stu-
dent must find a "homegroup" of
associates. It requires that "you
get out and use your own initia-
tive."
The President said he regretted

With a slight glance at Koeneke.,
Fleming expressed hope that ad-
ministration and students can live
in harmony. "We live in restless
times." he noted, "but we are
reasonable men: we can put our
views together."
The issue of student power was
only a small portion of Koeneke'st
speech. He outlined three expec-
tations from a college education:
a sharpened capacity for judg-
ment, development of individual
thought and of an ability to make
ncessary changes,
Freshmen were generally- en-,
thusiastic about both the program,
which was capped by several songs
by the Men's Glee Club and the
Friars, and President Fleming.
One student commented she

said.
