ROTC creditcu
By RON LANDSMAN
The literary college curriculum committee will reportedly
receive a recommendation tomorrow suggesting that certain
Air Force and Navy ROTC courses be assigned from one to
three hours credit. No credit will be recommended 'for Army
4 ROTC.
ROTC programs are currently worth 12 hours credit to-
ward a degree in the literary college.
The recommendation will come from a three man sub-
committee headed by Prof. Locke Anderson. The subcommittee

The special State Senate sub-
committee investigation of cam-
pus disorders is likely to be a care-
ful, thorough - and slow process.
Most members of the eight-man
subcommittee emphasize that their
investigation will be painstaking.
They expect to complete a report
"sometime before the end of the
year."
Public hearings will not be held
until at least May and perhaps as
late as July. Until then, the com-
mittee will conduct closed hear-
ings.
Sen. Robert Huber (R-Troy),
chairman of the committee, says
many individuals have offered to
testify, and their names are being
held in "strict confidence."
Committee members have n o t
yet indicated specific plans to is-
sue any subpoenas, although they
have considered doing so since the
committee was created Jan. 25."

Huber says the committee will
also hear reports from city and
state and university law enforce-
ment officials.
Huber has been conducting ex-
tensive discussions with student
visitors from Michigan State Uni-
versity and Oakland Community
College concerning the nature of
student disruptions.
The talks have only resulted in
"many questions and no answers
thus far" according to Huber.
Huber hopes the committee's in-
vestigation will help to explain the
nature of student disturbances
"all around the country."
Sen. Charles Youngblood Jr.
D-Detroit) asserts the committee
will "promise immunity to anyone
who wants to testify."
Some students have expressed
fear that the immunity process
will be used against persons sub-
poenaed, if that should ever come
about. If a student is granted im-

munity, he may not use the Fifth
Amendment freedom to refuse to
testify for fear of self-incrimina-
tion since he is immune to punish-
ment for anything he might say.
"The students on campus have
a right to be fearful," said Young-
blood in response to suspicion and
resentment of the committee voic-
ed by the campus community.
"If the investigation is not han-
dled right," he says, "it could turn
into a lot of witch-hunting and
could, give the students who want
a good education a bad name.
The committee has not yet
adopted an operating procedure,
but they expect to establish, one
within two or three weeks, says
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Ar-
bor).
So far the committee has held
only one meeting for purposes of
organization and discussion of the
criteria for the investigation.
Bursley says he hopes to bring

an "educational perspective to the
investigationl." He was added to
the original five-man committee
as a special member because of his
special educational concern.
Sen. James Fleming (R-Jack-
son), who has a legal background,
and Sen. N. Lorraine Beebe, (R-
Dearborn) who has a daughter at
the University, were added for the
same reason.
"The committee's task is to
create objective recommendations
for a stronger and healthier Uni-
versity," Bursley explains.
He also reports that letters and
suggestions from both within and
outside the state seem to support
the committee.
Youngblood, says letter from his
constituents indicate that they
believe "small groups" are respon-
sible for disorders at state colleges
and universities. His constituents
believe "the majority of people in
the universities are most inte-

rested in good education and re-
lationships," he says.
The committee is interested in
finding out "who is behind these
small groups to give them so much
power." Youngblood says.
The committee is also consider-
ing the use of a sociological staff
as consultants. Mrs. Beebe says
she believes the committee needs
access to persons with "expert
understanding of the drives of
young people and the pattern of
present urban problems."
A legal consultant has been add-
ed by the committee to interpret
any constitutional questions in-
volved in the proposals which re-
sult frgm the committee's investi-
gation.
However, Mrs. Beebe says that
State Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley has
already assured the committee that
they are not violating the state
constitution in their investigation.

By JIM NEUBACHER
Allegedly obscene words printed by the Michigan State
University student newspaper last week in connection with
coverage of student demonstrations there brought angry
criticism and threats from state legislators and the Michigan
Press Association Friday.
"The state News is bankrupt of morality," said State
Representative James Brown (R-Okemos). Brown, a former
newspaper publisher and editor, called for the MSU admin-
istration to "clear the state news offices of every student in
any way responsible or who stood silently by" when the of-
I fending story was printed.

student aid
WASHINGTON UML-An official
said yesterday the U.S. Office of
Education is studying how to im-
plement enforcement of the new
law requiring colleges and uni-
versittes to cut off federal aid to
students convicted of taking part
in disruptive activities.
The stipulation was included
in the education bill passed last
fall, but enforcement has not
started.
"Our legal department has to
study the law to determine how
it can be enforced," said Her-
man Allen, director of the Office
for Higher Education.
Allen noted it's up to colleges
to decide which students should
be prosecuted under the law, and
it's difficult to work out guide-
lines on such problems as stu-
dent transfers.
"Should a student from a col-
lege where his funds were cut off
be disciplined by the school he
transfers to?" said Allen.
Allen added his office does not
consider the law to be a "dead
letter," but he could give no time-
table for when enforcement might
begin.

a crowd of 5,000 students was
sprayed with tear gas by national
guardsmen.
The fact that the 1,500 nation-
al guard have been called off cam-
pus does not mean police officials
feel the disruptions are ending.
The decision to call off the guard
was made Friday afternoon when
Wisconsin's classes had ended for
the weekend. The guard was orig-
inally called up to "keep the school
open"-i.e. make sure demonstra-
tors didn't disrupt classes.
Early Friday morning the guard
was moved from the Dane County
Campgrounds to the school's Na-
turtium and Field House. rhey

stand-by alert yesterday and a
