Delegates To Go to Russia;
SDS Protests Kosygin Stand


"A representative of the Stu-
dents for a Democratic Society
will be present at the Soviet Un-
ion's 50th anniversary celebration
but only with the explicit under-
standing that SDS does not con-
done in any way, and, in fact,
! openly opposes the recent stand
taken by Russia concerning Viet-
This resolution passed by the
National Council of SDS, Sunday,
came in responise to a statement
made by Alexei Kosygin during a
press conference held in Paris,
Saturday. The statement said that
the Soviet Union considered the
matter of negotiations and peace
in Vietnam now up to the Viet-
namese "because they are the ones
who are fighting."
The national convention of SDS
had already discussed the issue of
the Soviet celebration earlier in
the week and decided to send the
representative. The question was
reopened primarily because of
Kosygin's statement.
SDS has received an official in-
vitation to this celebration sched-
ule for October.
The resolution concerning the
Soviet celebration, passed Sunday
in the final day of the national
convention held here last week,

was one of several issues discuss-
The National Council, a consid-
erably smaller body than that of
the convention met Saturday and
Sunday. The council meets four
times a year while the national
convention is annual.
Official convention representa-
tion is one delegate for every five
members in the local chapters,
while the National Council allots
only one delegate for every 25
local members. There are also
eight members elected at large.
The National Council's essential
duties consist of implementing and
overseeing. policies and activities
throughout the year.
During their two day session,
the National Council completed
the election of officers begun by
the convention.
During the regular convention,
the executive structure w a s
changed from a national presi-
dent-vice president to a three-
man executive committee.
The three officers elected were:
Mike Spiegal, from Harvard SDS,
as administrative secretary; Carl
Davidson, former SDS national
vice president, as inter-organiza-
tional secretary; and Bob Pardun
as Educational Secretary.

Among topics discussed was the
Middle East crisis. After nearly
two hours of heated debate, the
topic was tabled.
A teacher organizer program,
designed to train SDS organizers
who will then travel throughout
the country, was established. In
response to a mandate presented
by Voice political party, the local
chapter of SDS, a clause was in-
cluded stating that local chap-
ters must request the presence of
these national organizers in their
areas. Also, if the local chapter
wants to provide and train their
own organizers, the national or-
ganization would be compelled to
train them.
Committtees were also elected to
investigate such questions as na-
tional administration and the
liberation of women.
The larger National Convention
saw a week of resolutions, policy
formations and program creating.
Several topics such as affiliation
with bohemian and other left-wing
groups, foreign group affiliations,
the Middle East, crisis and the
woman's position were dicussed
and finally left to committees for
further investigation and sub-
sequent distribution of information
before any decision making will
take place.
Support was voted to the Stu-
dent Non-violent Coordinating
Committee and the Revolutionary
Action Movement for their efforts
which have been wrongly, in the
eyes of SDS, labeled conspiracies.
The second National Mobiliza-
tion against the war, planned for
October, was labeled by the con-
vention as a token action-"just a
public expression of belief and
therefore can have no significant
effect on American policy."
An insistance on immediate
withdrawal from Vietnam and a
vow to aid servicemen desiring to
disrupt within the ranks or to
desert and go underground were
both passed by large majorities.
A decisive split in the ranks
came-between men and women-
when the committee for the libera-
tion of women presented an anal-
ysis of the woman's position pre-
faced; "the following analysis of
women's role came out of the
women's liberation workshop; as
such, it cannot be changed and is,
therefore, not open to discussion
or debate." During a large part
of the discussion which did, in
fact, follow, the women presenting
the resolution would not recognize
men who wished to speak.
Although the convention did not
pass the analysis of women's posi-
tion - which characterized the
woman's position as comparable to
that of a slave in a colonial so-
ciety-several endorsements were
given to such ideas as (1) the cre-
ation of communal child care cen-
ters which would be staffed by
men and women; (2) complete
availability of birth control infor-
mation and devices to all women
regardless of age and martial
status, and (3) availability of
complete medical abortion to any
woman desiring it.

'U' Regents Asked to
More Than Double
Last Year's Grant
Action at last month's Regents'
meeting has encouraged StudentE
Government Council to make its
budget requests through adminis-
trative channels used in the past.
At the meeting, SGC requested
a budget of $50,028, about 2%
times their present budget. Thes
Regents presently allot SGC (andl
have been since 1955) 25 cents
per student per semester.
Past practice has been for the
Regents to give the Office of Stu-;
dent Affairs an appropriation
from which OSA gives SGC its
The SGC budget request marks
the first time SGC has asked for
an additional amount per student
(next year's budget would come
to 50-75 cents per student per
semester) and the first time SGC
has gone directly to the Regents
over financial matters.
No Refusal Given
The Regents did not give blan-
ket refusal to the SGC budget re-
quest but asked SGC to talk to
I Vice-President for Student Affairs
Richard Cutler about their re-
Sam Sherman, '68, said SGC
went directly to the Regents to
indicate we really need more
money and to set up direct com-
munications with them."
If SGC cannot get the Regents
to grant them more money per
student, it can levy an additional
50c per student at registration.
However, an SGC levy would also
require additional Regental ap-
Financiall Independence
SGC president, Bruce Kahn,
'68, points out "a request for a
levy could be considered equival-
ent to a request for financial in-
dependence for SOC."
If the Regents approve the levy
it would be put to a student refer-
endum in the fall.
The biggest expense on the new
SGC budget is a $13,00 student
endowed chair in an area which
students could choose each year.
Another new expense is a $2,280
request to run a student draft
counseling service. SGC also
plans to expand existing pro-
grams such as the legal service
and the Student Hosuing Assoc-!
iation which they feel have been
in demand.!
The legal service, under the
new budget, would be expanded
from four hours a week to 12t
hours a week. SHA would be givenc
$6,750 which would cover increas-
ed legal expenditures and the
use of the ISR for research on
Ann Arbor housing.,
"If additional funds cannot
be obtained, "Kahn said, "thet
student chair would probably be
the first item on the new budgetl
to go. Possible alternatives to theY
additionalbfunds through a levy
would be bucket drives for specif-
ic programs or additional money-
making projects."

A restored version of the high-
er education appropriations bill is
expected to be approved by the
state House of Representatives to-
The House version corresponds
to Gov. George Romney's origin-
al budget requests for state-sup-
ported colleges and universities.
The University is allotted $62.2
million, Michigan State University
remains at $59.4 million and
Wayne State University is at $33.8j

million. Nine other colleges are
also on the budget, which totals
$218 million.
The bill is far removed from
the $200 million version approved
by the Senate three weeks ago
and itis expected that the meas-
ure will have to spend several
days in a joint House-Senate sub-
appropriations package is ready
committee before a compromise
for Romney's signature.
But, even though the Legisla-
ture has extended last year's budg-

et for an unspecified amount of
time, it is expected that the fin-
al version may be wrapped up as
early as Saturday or next Mon-
But, the University's chances of
getting additional revenue remain
A major bill to increase the
University's appropriation by $3
million will be introduced to the
House tomorrow by Rep. Jack
Faxon (D-Detroit), as part of a
12-college package of increases.

Hi gher Education Funds
MAAay Get House Increase

Several other similar bills are be-
ing prepared.
Faxon, a member of the colleges
and universities committee, was
the originator of a three cent-a-
pack increase in the cigarette tax,
which was approved last Saturday.
He said he hopes to get as much
of the $29 million which the tax
would raise into the higher edu-
cation budget as possible.
No Chance
"There isn't a gentleman's
chance of adding to the educa-
tion budget," replied Roy Smith
(R-Ypsilanti). "The money just
isn't there," he said, 'and the Uni-
versity would have a "hard time
to persuade one vote for an in-
The University may actually
lose money in the joint sub-com-
mittee, he said.
Increase Likely
But an informal poll of the
House reported yesterday that a
majority felt there would be an
increase in the neighborhood of
$20 million in Romney's higher
education request. This would
give the University at least $64
million for this years operations.
But a Republican member of
the colleges and universitys com-
mittee, Rep. Raymond Smit of
Ann Arbor said that although
there is a great deal of support
for increases, the fiscal reform
package which passed the Leg-
islature last week will actually
fall about $50 million short of
covering Romney's original re-
quest. He said he will support
moves to hold spending to Rom-
ney's request because "there is
no source of revenue to make up
the difference."
Allocate Revenues
But the $29 million cigarette
tax revenues are not on the fiscal
reform income. If this money is
not allocated, constituent pres-
sure to put it into the lower and
higher education bills is expected
ino Faxon's words: "To grow to
unstoppable force when school
opens in the fall."
A tuition increase, however, re-
mains a real possiblity and it
will be up to the University Re-
gents, who are on call, to meet
and make the decisions as soon
as a budget figure is finalized.
The major stumbling block is
expected to be the Senate, which
will probably insist on appropri-
ations much lower than Romney's
requests, according to Sen. Harold
Hungerford (R-Lansing).
Without increases, quipped Rep.
Smit: "The people running the
University now will probably be
able to handle things without a
tuition hike; but if students want
to run the University, its time for
them to foot the bills too."

THE UNIVERSITY has awarded a record number of degrees
in the 1966-67 fiscal year, it was reported recently. Since July 1,
1966, the University has graduated 8,158 degrees. The previous
high, set in the 1965-66 fiscal year, was 7,891. Of the total, there
were 3,958 bachelor's, 2,810 master's, 475 doctor of philosophy, and
915 graduate professional degrees. In addition, 25 honorary de-
grees, four Outstanding Achievement Awards, and one Regent's
Citation of Honor were awarded.
MALCOM C. MOOS, Minnesota-born political scientist, was
named president-elect of the University of Minnesota by the
Board of Regents at a press conference Saturday morning. Moos
is presently the director of the Ford Foundation's Office of
Government and Law. He will assume his new post Sept. 1, suc-
ceeding 0. Meridith Wilson, who resigned last summer.
Moos' appointment ended a nine-month search for a presi-
dent. Robben Fleming, University president-elect, was offered the
position but turned it down last March in favor of the Uni-
versity's offer.

Labadle Collection Features Lit
From Century of Protest Moven

_ ___ _ _

1N Liscrimmna ion

The Labadie Collection, hidden
on the eighth floor of the General
Library, is the University's major
source of material on the various
protest movements which have
arisen in the last century.
Though it is often consulted for
research purposes by students of
radical movements for political
and economic reform, it has never
received its due recognition as
among the most outstanding col-
lections of its kind in the U.S.'
The Collection was formally pre-
sented to the University in 1911 by
Charles Joseph ("Jo.") Antoine
Labadie, an early Michigan an-
archist and labor agitator.
It is not, even now, a very pre-
possessing thing to look at. Its
value lies rather in the rarity of
its items. According to R. C.
Stewart, in a historical pamphlet
on the Labadie Collection, most of
its resources "fall into a class

songbooks of the International
Workers of the World (IWW), a
radical labor union.
The major contributors to the
Collection have been connected
with labor movements and R. C.
Stewart writes that "out of the
mass of tracts and pamphlets,
shop pares, handbills, news sheets,
and even union badges and cre-
dentials there emerges a good part
of the history of the American
workingman up to the time of Jo
Labadie's latter days."
Rich Source
The collection is a rich source
of material for the whole history
of the labor movement from 1869
to the present, with a special
emphasis on the development of
the Congress of Industrial Organi-
The formation of the Socialist
Labor Party and Socialist Party of
America, and the Communist Par-
ty of America are covered; and the

nority political groups, monetary
reform societies, free thought, civ-
ic liberties, woman's rights, tech-
nocracy, and single tax move-
ments, and youth and student pro-
test movements dating back to
the 1930's.
This type of material is what
has earned the Collection its "ra-
dical" reputation and moved one
investigator to describe it as a
"library of one-sided. arguments."
The Collection's chief claim to
recognition, since its donation to
the University by Labadie, who
was affectionately known as the
"gentle anarchist," has been the
section covering anarchism. The
range of anarchist periodical lit-
erature is probably unsurpassed
anywhere. It extends through
half a dozen different languages
and countries. The Collection is
kept up to date on all current an-
archist publications in the world.

An eight-week Linguistics In-
stitute, co-sponsored by the Uni-
versity and the Linguistics Socie-
ty of America, opened last week
with as many as 600 in attend-
ance. Dr. Herbert Paper, chairman
of the University's Linguistics De-.
partment and director of the in-
stitute, reports that about 150
University students and scholars
from all over the world including
Canada, EnglandnFrance, Israel,
India, Poland and the United
States are participating.
Designed to meet the growing
need for linguistically trained
scholars and teachers, the insti-
tute offers courses from the most
basic, for those new to the field,
to 'frontier" courses, so-called be-
- cause they present the latest re-
search and are offered nowhere
else in the world.
Students from the "Big Ten"
and the University of Chicago,
the schools forming the Commit-
I tee on Institutional Cooperation,
are counting courses taken at the
institute for credit toward degrees
from their own universities. Course
topics include such titles as the
