A second anti-war letter to+
President Johnson is being pre-
pared by a group of college and
university student leaders, it was
revealed last week.
Bruce Kahn, '68, president of
Student Government Council, said
he has not seen a copy of the
rough draft of the letter yet. But,
he stated, "If this one is anything
like the last one, I'll sign it."
The letter is thought to reiterate
the concern expressed in the first
letter over the Johnson admin-;
istration's lack of consideration of
student feelings on the Vietnam
war. Kahn hopes that the second
will, however, be "more forceful."
More Responsive
He added that such protest is
intended to make people i'n gov-
ernment as a whole "more re-
sponsive" to the wishes of young
Although the final form of the'
letter has not been determined,

It is reported that the seconds
document is also intended to show
that the President is chancing a
rift with the youth who must
fight the war.
More Plans
The student leaders are making
further plans to gain support forj
their cause. Movement of debates
from the campus to the commun-1
ity level will be encouraged, and
volunteers will be sent into local
areas across the nation in an ef-
fort to stimulate anti-war senti-
In conjunction with this action

on several campuses to have all

About 50 campuses throughout
the country are also going to con-

vocalized opinion than before" and
to "provide a forum" for students

Approve Gradual
Control Transfer
Wisconsin Students To Get LPower
Over All Nkon-Academic Affairs.
The Wisconsin Student Senate voted yesterday in favor of
gradual implementation of the bill passed in a student referendum
May 3 which provides, for student control of all non-academic affairs.
According to the proposal, the Wisconsin Student Association is to
replace faculty and administration as authority in all non-academic
student activity.
Despite the opposition of the minority United Community Action
Party, a group of student senators including affiliates of Students
for a Democratic Society, a majority of the senate agreed that im-
mediate implementation of the bill is not called for since the faculty
has given sufficient indication of future favorable action.
The referendum measure provided for complete transfer of control
yesterday unless the Student Senate voted that faculty reaction was
favorable enough to permit grad-,----------____


ual impleentation.
The Student Senate will now
work out a plan for gradual trans-
fer of power to be presented for
faculty approval next fall.
The faculty must approve any
provisions for implemntation be-
fore it is presented to the' Univer-
sity Regents for final approval.
No Challenge
Although the UCA plans cam-
paign to force immediate imple-.
mentation of the bill, Michael
Fullwood, president of the Student
Senate, and member of the more
conservative Students Rights Par-
ty, said that "Those unhappy with
the senate vote are in the minority
and there is not much they can do
to reverse the decision." He ex-
pects no serious challenge to yes-'
terday's vote.
The UCA may attempt to im-
peach Fullwood for "selling out"
to a faculty compromise, accord-
ing to Henry Haslach, past presi-
dent of Wisconsin SDS. The ref-
erendum bill was originated by
UCA members, who say the May 3
vote is a mandate for immediate
change and not for compromise
with administration and faculty.,
The measure passed by a 2200
vote margin.,
Top student senators met yes-
terday with the University Com-
mittee, the most powerful facul-
ty advisory body at Wisconsin, to
discuss possible plans of imple-
mentation. No definite decisions
have been made yet.
The administration has made no
official comment on the referen-
dum results. -

a.At Boston U.
Associate Managing Editor
Judge Charles Taylor of the
Fourth District Court of Boston
refused to pass jurisdiction yes-
terday on the case of William
Baird, director of the New York
Parents' Aid Society Clinic.
Baird was charged with dis-
playing and disseminating birth
control devices to unmarried stu-
dents at Boston University on
April 6.
Taylor said, "I understand that
you want to test this law (Massa-
chusetts state law prohibiting the
distribution of birth control in-
formation or devices except by reg-
istered physicians to married cou-
ples) up to the Supreme Court
I'll help you along."
Taylor referred the case' to the
Massachusetts Supreme Judicial
Court stating, "My court is not
interested in giving publicity to
this case."
According to Ray Mungo of the
Boston University News this re-

proposed three-year,- 511-mill school tax increase. The increase,
which under law could be used only for working operation ex-
penses and not construction, was designed to raise an additional
$2 million needed for teacher salary improvement.
Ann Arbor currently has the lowest minimum salaries for
teachers with both BA and MA degrees of all 30 school districts
in the state of comparable size, and ranks 20th out of 30 for
maximum BA and MA salaries.
ANN ARBOR'S 1967-68 CITY BUDGET was officially adopted
at City Council meeting last night. The action took place fol-
lowing a series of eight working committee meetings on the pro-
posed budget.
The Council also confirmed Mayor Wendell E. Hulcher's
recommended appointments to the Human Relations Commis-
sion. The appointments include Phil Spear, Brian Connelly and
Mrs. Deborah C. Grubbs.
REP. ROY 'SMITH (R-YPSILANTI) has sent a letter to a
regent at Eastern Michigan University, depicting a bleak future
for EMU appropriations "as long as students run the university."
Smith, referring to an EMU decision, following a recent student
demonstration, to grant students a 40 per cent vote on a com-
mittee to recommend a new vice president for student affairs,
said yesterday, "If the regents don't feel capable of running the
school, let them resign rather than let untrained students make
the decisions."

aid to Baird's case. "Now we're
half way up the ladder to the Su-
preme Court," he said.
While court was in session more
than 150 people pickpted outside.
They carried signs reading "Bring
Massachusetts into the twentieth
century," and "Free Bill Baird."
According to Mungo, Baird was
invited to Boston University to
"test the law and help out the
BU students. Massachusetts laws
are the worst and the mort archaic
in the country," he claimed.
Baird had previously challenged
birth control laws in New York
and New Jersey. Charges against
him were dropped there and he
was appointed state consultant on
birth control in both New York
and New Jersey.
The prosecution is pressing for
the maximum sentence of ten
years in the state prison. Charges
of attempt to incite riot and dis-
tributing birth control information
have been dropped.
Mungo claims this will make the
case more difficult to win because
Baird cannot claim interference
with his freedom of speech.
IThe American Civil Liberties
Union which had offered to defend
Baird in this case has changed its
mind. It claims that the state of
Massachusetts is not ready for
this case. They advised Baird to
plead guilty and get off easy.
Another source of opposition to
Baird has been the Planned Par-
ent Hood Organization of Boston
which has launced a public attack
on Baird for irresponsible breaking
