ished at the beginning of the fall term.
Presently only those women under 21 who have parental
permission are exempt from curfew regulations. About ten

corridor of Mosher-Jordan Hall.

security" if they believe their

Also included in the motion was

which would "apply policies set by

But the Board told the dissatis-

Both Bentley and his parents
were alumni of the University.
Regent Bentley graduated with a
BA in history in 1940 and then
earned a masters in history in
1963. From 1941 to 1950 he was
a Foreign Service officer and
worked at posts in Mexico, Co-

Returning to Michigan in 1950,
Bentley was elected to Congress

Anderson says Health Service cannot

Any new facilities should be located in

shouldn't expect students to miss class to
come to Health Service," he explains-
In addition to increasing the staff, the
