SDS Plenary Session Votes
To Seat 23 Voice Delegates
By BETSY TURNER+
and MIKE CLEAR
The National Convention of
Students for a Democratic So-
ciety milled into its second day
yesterday, as groups of delegates
and students hovered around the
classrooms, lobby, and lawns of
The morning session began with
panel discussions, which later be-
came organizational meetings, and
finally workship groups in the
afternoon. The plenary session,'
held in the Natural Science audi-+
torium last night, saw a lengthy
dispute over the seating of the
Voice Political Party delegation.
The size of the delegation was fin-f
ally set at 23. The meeting was
also interrupted by an impas-'
sioned statement for action by a
non-SD S'er from New York.
After settling these two mat-
tes, the convention moved on toa
determine the schedule for today's
proceedings. Delegates will be
seated in the morning, and work-
shops on topics approved by the
body last night will be held in the
afternoon. Topics included are:
organization, University, draft,
foreign policy, internal education,
labor and working class, hippies
and the underground press, and
The draft discussions, the most
widely attended sessions of the
day, opened with a discussion of
the problems of draft resistance.
Ken Kirk, member of the Nation-
al Lawyers Guild, followed with an
analysis of legal contingencies con-
fronting draft resisters. The aft-
ernoon session saw tactical discus-
sions and proposed * anti-draft
demonstrations were discussed.
"Liberation of women" served as
another panel topic: While the
I:j~e Lirig tijayi~
morning session of this group con-
sisted of both men and women,
the afternoon group, dominated in
number by women, voted to limit
attendance to women alone, since,
in the words of one attending SDS
member, "the whole theory behind
the Black Power movement is that
Negroes run their own show.
Another w o r k s h o p entitled,
"Where America is going" discuss-
ed the bureaucratic methods of
problem solving. Such methods as
"information gathering," "cata-
gorizing-processing," and "goal-
setting" were condemned by group
participants as dealing with the
"realities of the computer" rather
than real human situations. As a
result, these bureaucratic methods
can not come close to solving such
problems as poverty and Vietnam.
The major portion of the Plen-
ary meeting consisted of a lengthy
debate.to determine whether Voice
Political Party should have 23 or
29 delegates seated at the conven-
tion. After two and half hours of
debate and clarification, the con-
vention voted 87 to 72 to seat only
23 delegates. A second balloting
was taken which upheld the first
decision with a vote of 93 to 79.
The total number of delegates to
be seated at the convention now
stands at 154.
The Voice debate was inter-
rupted by a fiery plea from Berin

President Drafts Position Letter;
Calls Committee Plan 'Impractical'
University Preeldent Harlan Hatcher called the legislature's plans
for raising non-resident student fees "impractical and unrealistic"
in a position letter on University appropriation needs for the next
year to Rep. Arnell Engstrom (R-Traverse City), yesterday.
Engstrom, chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, had
met with Michigan State University President John Hannah yesterday
morning on higher education needs throughout the state.
Hannah, acting in his position as chairman of the Council of Col-
lege Presidents spoke for all 12 state-supported colleges and univer-
sities in presenting a plea for increased appropriations.
Hatcher prepared the letter after the meeting to supplement
what Hannah had been able to present in the hour he was allotted.
It was the first official statement prepared by the University on
tuition hikes and the budget.

REPRESENTATIVES of civil rights group from Midwest
states arrived in Washington today to protest selection of Weston,
Ill., as site for a giant atom smasher and received a promise a new
attempt would be made to overturn the choice.
Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Mich., said he will move to strike
Western as the site for the 200 Billion Electron Volt proton accel-
eator or to have its authorization bill sent back to committee.
Conyers is a Negro and Ann Arbor was one of the unsuccessful
bidder for the atom smasher.

THE ARMY CLAIMED Tuesday that Capt. Howard B. Levy,
an Army doctor convicted of disloyalty and disobedience, ,would
defect to a Communist country if he is released on bail pending
appeal of his conviction and three-year sentence.
The Army told the U.S. Court of Military Appeals it learned
from a reliable informant that Levy, 30, a Brooklyn, N.Y., der-
matologist, said on May 31 that if convicted he planned to seek
bail and then flee to a Communist country and seek political
Capt. L. Dean Moore, representing the Army, said the in-
formant quoted Levy as saying he would "remain absent from the
United States for a period of several years, during which time he
would denounce the United States."
"I'm very much excited by the
prospect of being director of the
new Residential College," James
H. Robertson, Associate Dean of
the literary college said. "The more

college, the sounder and more valid
it seems. To my mind it is one of
the most hopeful answers to the
problem of largeness at the Uni-

Robertson will have many duties
as director of the new college. One
he counts as most important is
"establishing a rapport between
the administration, faculty and
students of the college.
In establishing the "rapport" he
speaks of, Robertson says he in-
tends to make the college into an

person has a certain responsibility
for managing the community and
keeping it healthy. That includes
shaping the curriculum and the
regulations, and in general de-!
termining the climate in which all!
the students will live."
In addition, Robertson wants
the college to have "as much im-
pact - on the structure of the rest
of the University as it possibly
The kind of impact Robertson
refers to includes affecting the
shaping and planning of new
courses with an eye to small sem-'
inars and interdisciplinary study.
Since the majority of the faculty
in the College will also teach reg-
ular University courses, Robertson
hopes they will bring the emphasis
on personal contact found in the
College to the rest of their stu-
Robertson will have other du-
ties besides merely establishing a
"rapport." Working with his ad-
ministrative colleagues, he must
find new staff for the College, find
interested faculty to work on plan-
ning committees to develop new
courses, develop a workable budget
for the school, contribute ideas for
programming and suggest possible
"In short, I will have just about
all the duties of the dean of a
small college," Robertson said.
In addition, Robertson must do
the job of interpreting the Resi-
dential College both to those with-
in the University community and
to those outside it. This will in-
clude working with the dean and
faculty committees of the literary
college, the Housing Office and
the Office of Student Affairs. j

the commission which formulated
the plans for the Residential Col-
lege. But his background in aca-
demic counseling and his work
with the LSA curriculm committee

is about to officially undertake.
Robertson earned his BA degree
at New York University. He came
to the University to receive his
masters in English and his PhD in
American Literature. Robertson
has been teaching at the Univer-
sity since 1938. He was appointed

In his work on the curriculm
committee Robertson supported

linary courses, and he has served
as chairman of the Administrative
Board on Academic Counseling.
He said all these things "more
or less fitted" when the Residen-
tial College became a reality and
a new director was needed.
He continued that "Adequate
support of higher education is the
most important capital investment
the citizens of .our state can make.
We strongly urge that you and
your colleagues, as representatives
of the people, make that important
investment for the future."
Hatcher commented specifical-
ly on four major provisions of the
bill, adding that he is prepared
to document any or all of the Uni-
versity's needs in detail.
He said plans for increasing
non-resident student fees would
be "so drastic and so high as to
be both impractical and unrealist-
ic. The gap lbetween the pro-
posed net appropriation and the
gross budget as set forth can-
not be closed merely by an in-
crease in student fees."
Salaries of staff, he said, must
move up "not less than the low-
est of other institutions and agen-
cies (in the state)."

habilitation, he explained, must

The Presidehtial Commission on
the Role of Students in Decision
Making released their interim re-
port late last week.
The report defines what the
commission feels are the important
University government problems
presented by student participation
in decision making.
The members of the commission
agreed that the groundwork had
been laid in their meetings of the
last five months for agreement on
the solution of these problems-
perhaps by mid-fall.
The amount of protections or re-
strictions the University should
offer the student was recognized
in the report as one of the chief
problems in the student decision-
The amount of weight the stu-
dent voice should carry in decision
making was considered another
problem area. The commission
asks in the report if "administra-
tive or faculty consultation, ad-
vice, review, consent or veto is
appropriate in areas where stu-
dents play a definitive role? .. .
Should student representatives be
provided some direct formal access
to the Board of Regents "
The question of the structure of
student government and its inte-
gration with the administration
was also mentioned as a major
Gretchen Groth, grad, a member '
of the commission, commented
that they were "not in general
bogged down. Given the size and
ambiguity of the mandate, it would
have been impossible to come to a
conclusion at this point."
