action, however, the parties have
boiled the many standing points
of contention to two.
Democrats want to add a state
sales tax rebate of $3 per person
and to raise the proposed 5 per
cent business tax rate to 5.8 or
6 per cent but Republicans have
refused compromise.
A stumbling block to approval
of the bill has been a Democratic
agreement that they will not vote
for a bill which has not first been
approved by House leaders.

By BETSY TURNER
The annual Students for a Dem-
ocratic Society convention was
underway at the University yester-
day and the emphasis of the250-
300 delegates in attendance was
upon action - rolling up sleeves
and getting down to the hard, un-
rewardrig work of hashing out
programs-rather than the frivol-
ity or facile intellectualism that
characterizes many conventions.
The conference opened Sunday'
with regional meetings, informal
discussions and films.
Yesterday morning. three papers
on present weaknesses in the eco-
nomic and social systems of the.
nation were presented to a gener-
al assembly. The authors also pre-
sented possible courses of action
that radical University groups,
especially SDS, could follow.
Informal Groups+
The afternoon sessions began
with informal discussion groups of
about 20 to 30 people. The groups+
were designed to provide an op-
portunity for general discussion of'
the morning presentations.
The discussions were followed by
a panel on Vietnam in{which Carl

and Nick Egleson, the present na-
tional president, spoke on the ori-
gins and direction of the war.
The evening sessions focused
mainly on regional and small
group conferences.
The first paper presented to
the conference by Robert Gott-
lieb, a student at the New School
for Social Research in New York,
was co-authored by Gottlieb, Ger-
ry Tenny and David Gilbert. It
consisted of an analysis of capi-
talism and its main sources of
strength, including institutions
which are necessary for its main-
tenance. Large scale commercial-
ism and technology in all fields
were cited by Gottlieb as two such
institutions.
This paper also presents a new
theory for social change entitled
"Post-Scarcity." The essential
components are decentralization,
abolition of division of labor and,
eventually according to the plan,
elimination of the existing in-
equitable distribution of wealth.
The authors also condemned tech-
nology as "one of the factors in-
fluencing centralization of control
in American sciety."
Gottlieb, in his presentation, cit-
ed four classes which exist in the

United States: the ruling class,
petty bourgeoise, a working class,
and the poor or underclass. A
coalition of students, the Indus-
trial proletariat - part of the
working class as defined by Gott-
lieb-and the underclass could
serve as a power base for the
radical movement, according to
this paper..
Another group, the technical
worker in industry, was defined
as the "new working class." The
authors of this paper feel that
this new class, if organized, will
have the power to cripple, and
thereby force change in the pres-
ent system.
. Second Paper
The second paper, presented by
Jared Israel, a student at Harvard,
presented a paper entitled: U.S.
Capitalism - Prosperity or Crisis?
The initial question posed by Is-
rael was, "How to radicalize people
who are not oppressed?" Since
people do not see or understand
the total picture of life in our so-
ciety, according to Israel, they be-
come accustomed and satisfied
with their own particular life
styles. Education aimed at devel-
oping total awareness of this con-
dition is needed.
The status of capitalism in this
country is characterized by thef
authors: "No other capitalist
country has done worse since
World War I, except decrepit and
tottering Britain."
The third paper, outlined by
Larry Gordon of Harvard and
written by Paul Potter and Hal
Benenson, deals with the radical
perspectives on the campus. A
large portion of the paper focused
on an analysis of present campus
movements and what has to be
done in local SDS chapters.
Vietnam Debate
After presentations and the
following discussions, attention
was directed to another issue-
Vietnam. Egleson, the initial panel
speaker, gave a critique of the in-
formation he had gathered on his
recent trip to Hanoi. According to
Egleson, the Viet Cong are vic-
torious at the present time and
are confident of eventual total
victory. He added that they expect
the war to last at least 20 years
and also expect considerable esca-
lation.
Hayden the following speaker,
emphasized the need to discuss
strategy rather than analysis since
SDS members, in his opinion, know.
or should know the facts about the
situation already.
Hayden presented three possible
alternatives which were available
to Johnson at present: 1) gradual
escalation continuing at the pres-
ent rate; 2) the implementation ofj
poison gas, nuclear weapons and
land invasions; 3) withdrawal and
retreat on the grounds that the

SAIGON - Entrenched North Vietnamese forces unleashed
a series of rocket, mortar and artillery barrages last' night and
this morning against three U.S. forward bases just south of the
demilitarized zone.
First reports listed allied casualties at five killed and 100
wounded, including U.S. Marines and South Vietnamese civilian
irregulars militiamen. Heaviest casualties were inflicted at the
U.S. Army Special Forces camp at Lang Vei in the northwest
corner of South Vietnam, one mile east of the Laotian border and
about five miles south of the demilitarized zone.
MERLIN W. MILLER will replace Edward G. Groesbeck as
registrar of the University on Aug. 1. The announcement was
made Friday by Allan F. Smith, vice president for academic af-
fairs.
Groesbeck will resign July 31 to become vice president for
academic affairs at Hardin-Simmons University at Abilene, Texas.
Miller, now associate registrar, came to the University in 1955
as a research assistant from North Dakota State University, where
he had been director of admissions and records. He was named

cording to Olgesby, the U.S. is
interested in controlling cultural
development in other areas of the
world and has demonstrated this
in these two areas in particular.
According to Olgesby, "the his-
torical objectives of this country
are in direct opposition to our ec-
onomic and political interests in
other areas of the world. It is
impossible for us to pursue
both."
Tomorrow, the conference will
hold strategy panels, on such
topics as draft, the University, the
working class, poor, electoral pol-
itics, middle class, and foreign
policy. Discussion groups on strat--
egy will be held in the afternoon.
Credentials and plenary on the
agenda will be considered in the
evening.

"The importance and univer-
l sality of hierarchy in organiza-
- tions suggest it as a topic for
comparative study," Tannenbaum
said.
"The proposed research, while
, exploratory, is designed to con-
- tribute to our understanding of
how the effects of hierarchy may
differ as a function of formal
systems of control and ideologies.
"It will be interesting to see
if the same gradients occur in
organizations specifically designed
e to eliminate them.
"Both the Israeli kibbutzim and
. Yugoslav factories managed by
- workers' councils were structured
on egalitarian principles," he add-
ed. "The question is, how well are
these theories working?
"The organizations will differ in
their formal structures of con-
trol and, because, of socio-politi-
cal differences between countries,
in the values and expectations of
members."
On one level the study will ex-
amine patterns along the hier-
- archy in the reactions of members,
s and how these reactions vary from
country to country.
d A second level will emphasize
s social - psychological processes
- within organizations, including re-
d lations between persons at adja-
e cent ranks. Some attention will be
h given to the motives, values and
expectations of members and how
h these may have a bearing on
d their reactions to given organiza-
tional conditions.

Although Republicans hold a
56-50 majority in the House, six
Republicans have been unwilling
to support Romney's tax planning.
With the Democrats voting as a
unit, there can be no approval
until the leaders reach a satisfac-
tory compromise.
The gap between the sides has
been narrowing, however, and
Democrats finally said yesterday
that they would lower their mini-
mum request for a business tax to
5.8 per cent. They have contended
that anything less would place
too much tax burden on individ-
uals..
But Republican leaders insisted
yesterday that 10 votes from their
bloc would disappear if the
amount were raised above 51/2 per
cent.
Present Bill
The present bill calls for a 21/2
per cent personal income tax, a
5 per cent business tax, 7 per cent
tax on financial institutions and
a 3 cent per pack increase in thl
cigarette tax.
If House approval of a plan
comes this week, the bill will
go into House-Senate negotiations
to produce a final compromise
plan.
If no vote on the bill comes by
Saturday, action will have to wait
until next year and Romney has
already notifisd state agencies
that large budget cuts wilt bs
initiated next Monday.
In the meantime, action on the
appropriations budget, which pro-
vides money for all state services,
has been shelved.
Exemption Included
A $1,000 per person exemption
was also included after compro-
mise talks with the governor. The
Democrats had called for $1,220
and the Republican plan provided
a $600 exemption.
A negotiating session has been
scheduled among leaders of both
houses for Thursday. But Demo-
cratic leader, William Ryan, (De-
troit) said the talks would be
postponed if a tax plan is not
passed by the House.
In a last-ditch effort to get a
tax reform without the large scale
acceptable to both parties, a group
of Republicans headed by Rep.
Roy Spencer worked with Ryan
to prepare a bare bones tax plan"
wihich would include only income
taxes.
The plan included a 11/2 per cent
personal income tax, a 5.1 per
cent corporate tax and 7 per cent
financial institutions tax, but was
quickly buried in committee.

By JILL CRABTREE '
The American Council on Edu-
cation (ACE) Board of Directors,
meeting in Washington last week,
approved a set of guidelines for use
by colleges and universities in re-
leasing information to non-profes-
sional sources which seek to "rate''
the institution.
The guidelines, proposed by
Council president Logan Wilson
urge educational institutions be-
fore releasing data to such agen-
cies to:
-"request the names and ad-
dresses of responsible individuals
in higher education who are asso-
ciated withe the enterprise and to
whom inquiry can be made con-
cerning it; and
-"request full information on
the research methods and proce-
dures by which it is proposed to
evaluate institutions."
Wilson also asked Alexander W.
Astin, director of the ACE office
of research, to comment at the
meeting on "college rating serv-
ices."
Astan began his statement by
emphasizing that knowledge about
the comparative impact of dif-
ferent institutions of higher edu-
cation is "still in a relatively prim-
itive state."
"Any attempts to rank or other-
wise rate colleges in terms of ef-

"Normally, this involves simply
a matching of students in terms of
academic ability with institutions
in terms of their 'selectivity."
Astin said this approach to col-
lege counselling oversimplifies the
characteristics of both the institu-
tions and the students, and implies
that each college would ideally en-
roll only one type of student.
He said it is important to make
a clear distinction between "rat-
ings" of colleges and objective de-

scriptive information about the in-
stitution, its environment, -or its
student body.
"Obviously," he said, "More good
information about institutions is
needed in order to enhance insti-
tutional self-understanding and
also to provide students with mor
meaningful information on which
to base their decisions.
The difficulty arises when such
descriptive information is equate
with institutional effectiveness."

All is not lost however. Your life

Meaning, yes; purpose, no.
But then purpose was never very

what you call "hard-core" news.
It takes place in dry looking of-

Also worth seeing, and often
