vote and all students should have
an equal vote," he added.
But the Regents countered that
the store need not serve those
schools that did not approve the
assessment.
"We considered this matter, and
decided that if a school did not
vote to pay for the store, then the
store simply shouldn't stock its
books," one Regent said.
The decision yesterday rep-
resented an important reversal of
votes taken at the July meeting of
the Regents which rejected 8:0 an
SGC plan similar to the present
proposal and defeated 4-4 a sug-
gestion by President Fleming that
the store be funded with voluntary
contributions.
The fear of ' jeopardizing the
University's appropriation, given
as the reason for the July vote,
was not mentioned yesterday, and
the only objection voiced was that
the University had no business
venturing into retail operations
which were not necessary.
Russian lecture
Nadejda Gorodetzky, profesor-
emeritus of Russian at the Univer-
sity of Liverpool, will discuss
"Problems of the Young in Recent
Soviet Literature" at a lecture
Sept. 24.
Prof. Gorodetzky will speak at
4:10 p.m. in room 200 of Lane
Hall.

Significant also at yesterday's
meeting was the fact that the pro-
posal was approved by a 5-2 mar-
gin, because Regent William Cud-
lip +R-Detroit ) one of the
staunchest opponents of the book-
store throughout the entire con-
troversy, was absent.

"Since Regent Cudlip was ab-
sent, it seemed important that we
got approval by five members, or
there might have been some ques-
tion of whether or not we had
actually broken the tie," said
President Fleming following the
decision.

agreed to recess for an hour until
4 p.m. to explain the compromise
plan to students.
About 400 students packed the
Assembly Hall. and SGC President
Marty McLaughlin listed his ob-
jections to the proposal.
McLaughlin argued that the
store should be operated by the
student and faculty consumers
who, he said, have more of an in-
terest in the store than an admin-
istrator.
He called the referendum an at-
tempt to destroy the validity of
the student vote and added that,
in any event, the approval of a
$1.75 assessment should stand. He
said, "there should not be a total
levy of $5" the figure suggested by
the Regents, "but $3.25 at most.

Regents meeting

This leaves the validity of our
referendum."
Rent Strike leader Al Kaufman
said in the past students have
"paid money for athletic funds
and the Union without being ask-
ed. This time they were asked and
it's clear what their interest are."
Regent Robert Nederlander (D-
Franklin ) pointed out a second
referendum would give many new
students the opportunity to express
an opinion on the issue.
Regent Lawrence Lindemer <R-
Stockbridge iquestioned the fair-
ness of SGC imposing a compul-
sory fee assessment on all students
when there was some doubt
whether students in the nursing
school and law school favor the
assessment plan. This he said nec-
essitated a second referendum.
Later, Rent Strike Coordinator
Peter Denton linked the idea of
an administrator running the store
to an Ann Arbor merchant and
operating it. Denton said that if
this happened he expected profits
would be funneled into "exploiters"
hands and not be run in the in-
terest of consumers.
When Regent Gerald Dunn iD-
Flushing 1 made a comment during
his speech, Denton turned around
and told the audience "he's hec-
kling me." The students roared
with laughter as did some Regents.
This issue on whether to disrupt
the Regents meeting never came
up. At 4 p m. when the discussion
ended. the Regents left the As-
sembly Room and adjourned their
meeting before the students could
vote on disruption.
The students then voted over-
whelmingly against the Regents
plan a it stood.
