Based on the principle that
the unit is more viable than the
mass, the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Af-
fairs (SACUA) serves as the
University's most effective ve-
hicle for faculty opinion.
True, the University has a
faculty Senate which contains
1200 members. But it meets
only twice a year and is an
unwieldy instrument for public

elects a 19-man microcosm
which can represent its. views
to the administration. This is
SACUA. Two ex-officios are
added to make up the full com-
plementof 21 members.
From their rank is chosen
one man annually who, more
than anyone on the campus, is
responsible for seeing that SA-
CUA distills and transmits fac-
ulty sentiment.
For the coming year that
man will be Prof. Richard Well-
man of the Law Schoo , the
SACUA chairman. He replaces
Prof. William Kerr, chairman
of the nuclear engineering de-
partment. '
As chief faculty representa-
tive, Wellman will have a for-
midable task in crystalizing
faculty opinions. This is due in
part to the segmental or "state
rights" approaches of profes-

Their doctrine demands that
faculty members maintain ter-
ritorial rights over the run-
ning of their departments and
schools. This limits their scope.
In the Law School, faculty
members help "set admissions
policies and aid in the selec-
tion of new staff members."
With their interest centered
in their own schools and their
time devoted to research and
teaching, faculty members "are
reluctant to assume any more
responsibilities in a power
sense," Wellman observes.
They are only too glad to
leave the running of the Uni-
versity to the administrators.
Their task is to be a "viable
working advisory body to the
administration, aware that ad-
vice is best received when it is
isked for."
Wellman checks off a list of
cases where faculty opinion
was solicited and followed:
-The Reed report of 1962
(named for chairman Prof.
John W. Reed of the Law
School), which called for re-
vamping the Office of Student
-The Harris report (named
for Prof. Robert Harris of the
Law School) which set down
the guidelines in which a mem-
bership selection document was
drafted to guard against dis-
To prepare these and other
recommendations, SACUA re-

lies upon the principle of the
smaller unit. It has more than
15 subcommittees, each special-
izing in one field. Their invest-
igations explore all the major
issues of the University.
From the freedom and re-
sponsibility committee last year
emerged a proposal to alter the
nature of the University Senate
and SACUA. The provisions
would establish a University
Assembly of 65 persons elected
to three-year terms. SACUA
would be reduced to nine mem-
When the issue comes up for
discussion in the Senate next
fall, Wellman will remain neu-
tral. He does retain some
doubts: "I don't think that
shrinking SACUA will help it,"
he contends.

said Goldwater is running on the

Some party leaders offered their

POLICE WENT INTO action Wednesday night as hundreds of

ATLANTA VP)--Spokesmen for the nation's 20 million Negroes
reacted with bitterness yesterday to Sen. Barry Goldwater's nomina-
tion as the Republican candidate for President.
The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said that although he doesn't
regard Goldwater as a racist, the senator "articulates a philosophy
which gives aid and comfort to the racists."
"I think that it's obviously an attempt to appeal to all of the fear-
ful, the insecure, prejudiced people in our society," Whitney Young,
director of the National Urban<

League, said.,
"It's a test of all Americans
. whether they really belive in
democracy, in sharing, in civil
rights for all people. This whole
campaign is based on the notion
that most Americans aren't really
ready to live up to their demo-
cratic or religious creeds."
The Congress of Racial Equality
called the nomination a "tragedy
for the Republican party and for
the American nation."
Roy Wilkins, executive director
of the NAACP, said Negroes "gen-
erally will be disappointed at the
"Goldwater himself is not re-
garded as a racist in their minds,"
he said, "but they note with dis-
may that among his supporters
are some of the most outspoken
racists in America.
"Their quarrel with the senator
lies in their opinion that the fed-
eral government must act to pro-
tect the rights of citizens against
infringement by the states and
the senator's belief that the fed-
eral government has no such
role," Wilkins said.
