Theta Chi was offered about $28,-

Shortly after refusing Campus-

Retgeits Approve $35,000 Budge
To Seek Qualified Negro Person
A report prepared by the Office of Financial Statistics, prese
to the Board of Regents at their April meeting, shows a drop in
percentage of Negroes employed in non-academic positions by
University since December 1962.
However the report does indicate a hike of over 2,000 in
total number of Negro employes since December 1961 and shc
steady increase in percentages since December 1964.
According to Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer W:
K. Pierpont, the report is filed regularly once a year with the fe
goverunient in accordance with research contract agreements.
At Pierpont's suggestion, the Regents approved the apprc
tion of $35,000 for a three-man staff to intensify present effoi
obtaining qualified Negro per- -
"Whatever we might have done,
everyone is in general agreement
that we should intensify our ef-

all faculty and administration power over non-classroom student
life is being held today at the University of Wisconsin.
The Wisconsin Student Senate voted unanimously April 28
to sponsor the vote which will be binding on the Wisconsin
Students Association (WSA). It the referendum should pass, it
would give WSA control of all regulatory aspects of non-class-

the heaviest loss has been that of
moral identity." Husain described
the average individual as having
"no self, no inner identity, noth-
ing in him that can be esteemed
as unique."
The educators possess the abil-
ity to restore the moral force of
the individual, since it is "part
of the educator's function to labor
to change these conditions when
necessary and anticipate the fu-
ture," Husain said. "Education
should consist in stimulating a
search for values, in their cour

the most adverse conditions and
in their expression in all activi-
ties so far as possible," he ex-
"Only when education assumes

Pierpont explained.
Pierpont said the report was the
result of "a great many hours of
concentrated efforts last month."4
He predicted that "a substantial
next move" might come after an
evaluation of the effectiveness of
the new program.
Pierpont said that the new pro-
grams would "not answer all 16
points made" by a Defense De-
partment report released last
March, but "would respond spe-
cifically to many of them."
Pierpont, in answer to a ques-
tion from Regent Otis Smith, in-
dicated that he had consulted
with the faculty before making{
the recommendations. He said that.
