Flint aculty
supports war
The faculty of the University's Flint campus voted over-
whelmingly Thursday to support the Oct. 15 class moratorium
on the war in Vietnam.
The faculty did not formally cancel classes for the day, al-
though some professors are expected to do so. The faculty
asked the administration to make facilities available to any,
student or faculty member who wants to conduct moratorium

Arrest of
The attorney for John Col-
lins, accused murderer of
Eastern Michigan University
coed Karen Sue Beineman,
charged yesterday that Collins
was arrested illegally.
Speaking at the third pre-trial
hearing at Washtenaw County
Circuit Court, defense attorney
Robert A. Francis claimed that
police arrested Collins "solely for
the purpose of obtaining a finger-
print sample."
Francis moved to suppress evi-
dence taken from Collins' car,
room, and the basement and in-
cinerator of the house where he
was staying.
Francis charged that the search
warrants used against Collins did
not "list with particularity the
items which were suspected to be
contained in the said automobile
and said room."
He argued that the warrants'
were "just asking for everything
under the sun," and resembled "a
fishing expedition."
Francis also said that the search
warrants did not list any reason-
able belief for the police agencies
involved to believe that the items
which were seized were contained
in Collins' car or room.
The Washtenaw County Sher-
iff's Department, the Ann Arbor
police, the Ypsilanti police, and
the Michigan State police, all took
part in the search for the mur-
derer of the seventh girl sexually
molested and killed in the area in
two years.
Francis said that under Mich-
igan law, hearsay evidence or be-
lief or suspicion are all insuffi-
cient reason for a magistrate to
issue a search warrant.
He claimed that the search
warrants "were issued on hear-
He gave as an example the con-
tention that the warrants asked
for the fingerprints of Joan Schell,
the first victim, in Collins' car.:
However, Francis explained that
Collins' car was a 1968 Olds which
couldn't have been manufactured
before the autumn of 1967 while
Miss Schell was murdered in the'
summer of 1967.
Francis also allegedly charged
that police were working from a
list of motorcycles which did not
match any of those owned by
He claimed that the blood and
hair samples did not constitute
valid evidence.
"The blood samlen was A. 40

stitute evidence," he argued.

*'comment on the faculty's
The Flint moratorium is sim-
ilar to activities expected on this
campus and on many other cam-
puses nationwide. Although t h e
administration here has also not
cancelled classes, President Rob-
ben Fleming has said he will make
some University facilities avail-
able for discussion of the tvar.
A tentative program for the day
at, Flint drawn up by a joint
student-faculty committee, calls
for workshop and panel discus-
sions. a massive rally and a me-
morial service for the soldiers
killed in Vietnam from Genessee
County, which includes Flint.
The faculty resolution called for
a "collectivepublic expression of
our condemnation of the contin-
uing military involvement in Viet-
nam and for a reversal of na-
tional priorities away from mill-
tarism in all its guises and tow-
ards social reform in this nation."
The call was made, the faculty
said, "in keeping with the concept
of the University as teacher, as
guardian of civilized values, and
as a critical and moral intelligence
which may lead the community to
ponder its courses of action .,.
Flint College public relations
head Richard McElroy said he ex-
pects little campus opposition to
the moratorium. He also predicted
that citizens from largely working
class Flint will also participate in
the discussions.
One campus organizer was not
so optimistic, however. Prof. Frank
Richardson, who helped direct the
action at Flint, was skeptical about
community support for the mora-
, torium.
He said Flint citizens would not
likely favor the devotion of class
time to discussions on the -,var.
Richardson said the idea of in-
cluding Flint in the national mira-
torium movement germinated in a
golf shop conversation he had with
a few friends.

Attorney claims m1

Special To T ' Daily
CHICAGO-'Chicago 8' defense
attorney William Kunstler stir-
prised the court yesterday by con-
fronting a prosecution witness
with abear'ded, helmeted, "ex-
hibit" named Robert Levin and
asking whether perhaps witness
had confused the stranger with
defendant Jerry Rubin.
The witness, Sgt. Robert Mur-
ray, of the Chicago Police Depart-
ment, denied that he made a mis-
take, insisting that Levin was "too
tall" to be the man he saw in-
veigh against police in Lincoln
Park on Aug. 25, 1968.
Defendant Rennie Davis ex-
plained at a news conference that
the defense was convinced that

something was wrong with Mur-
ray's testimony because they knew
that Rubin, who was allegedly

football helmet and throwing a
cigarette butt at policemen, -ever.

during the convention week Ois-
Rubin, serving a 45 day "n-
tence for a misdemeanor com-
mitted in California, was in jail
and unable to meet with reporters.
Davis claimed that Rubin was
not even in Lincoln Park on the
day stated, and that the plain-
clothes officer my have made a
mistake, since a Yippie named
David Boyd had been followed for
days preceding the convention by
police detectives who believed he
was Rubin.

The Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs
(SACUA) indicated informal
support for the concept of
a student-faculty controlled
bookstore at a three-hour
meeting with students yester-
However SACUA would not
commit itself formally at a spe-
cial meeting later.
Following the discussion with
-i students, other faculty members
-i and Arthur Ross, vice president
for state relations and planning,
SACUA called for another meet-
ing with students Tuesday to dis-
cuss "proposals for a student-fac-
ulty controlled bookstore which
will accommodate the concerns of
the Regents."
During the discussion there was
little disagreement raised on stu-
dent-faculty control. SACUA vice-
enst 1 (1 uestion chairman Prof. Robert Knauss of
. the Law School said this was a.
"given," and said he wanted to
spend time ironing out other as-

Nixon urges Swenlate
OK for Haynsworth
WASHINGTON iAj -- President Nixon pressed the Senate
yesterday for swift confirmation of his appointment of Clem-
ent F. Haynsworth Jr. to the Supreme Court in the face of
further senatorial requests that the nomination be withdrawn.
The President's personal intervention came at the climax
of a day of administration efforts to blunt the attacks on
Haynsworth who is at present a judge on the U.S. Circuit
Court of Appeals.
Earlier in the day a Republican senator, who declined to
be quoted by name, had underscored Nixon's concern by tell-
ing a reporter: "The White House says this is a do-or-die
thing. We have to have this." - ---~

The Physical Education De-
partment has begun to rebuild its
program to appeal to freshmen
and upperclassmen on an elective
basis. The changes are a result of
the dropping of the required phy-
sical education by the University
beginning this semester.
The physical education program,
which has until this year re-
lied on the freshman requirement
to augment interest, has seen its
enrollment drop to less than 25
per cent of last year's level. It
has thus had to add many new
features to become more attrac-
According to Professor Howard
Leibee this has resulted in "no
tuition and only nominal fees to
cover equipment cost. In addition
all courses are on a pass-fail

basis and many art, now co-educa-
Marie Hartwig, Professor of
Physical Educational said "new
courses such as scuba diving and
skiing are being offered" as well
as a new variety of courses still in
planning that should appeal to
many students. She also added,
"the flexibility now afforded the
department should encourage
students, if they want a course
dnot offered, to ask that it be
Miss Joan Peters, an instructor

says. "the instructors are happier
because they now have kids whoE
wanted to take the class."
Allan Smith, Vice-President for
Academic Affairs, said the initial'
reason behind the ending of the
Irequirement was a need to make
better use of the resources at hand
and a need to increase the role of
the Intermural program.
"I never was particularly happy
with the freshman requirement,"
Smith added. He stated the phys-
ical education department had
been in from the start on the dis-
cussions to drop the requirement.
Last spring the committee issued
a report to the Regents which lead
to the abolition of the requirement.
The report stated, "The university
is an institution of higher learning
and we see no demonstrable con-
nection between fulfilling the
functions of the university and a
compulsory pr'ogram of physical
F On tod(1V'S

Professor Paul Hunsicker, asso-
ciate director of physical educa-
tion recalled the department's
stand on the requirement. "We'
suggested that some type of
screening test be given, so only
students who obviously needed it
would be required to take it." The
Regents rejected the testing.
Prof. Hunsicker also reflected a
feeling generally shared in the
dept. that it was too early to as-
sess the longe range effect an all
elective progi'am would have.
"I predict from studies we have
done on other colleges that have
done away with their required pro-;
gram, that in five years we will
have just as many students in the
elective program as we previously
had in the required one," he said.

History department introduces reforms

While students agitated for
changes in the distribution and
language requirements in LSA
last year, the history depart-
ment, with some student initia-
tive, was quietly going about
improving its own program.
The department introduced
three changes aimed at easing
the students' load and making
college a little more productive.
All department undergrad-
uate courses were increased

students work out a program
with their faculty counselor.
The senior seminar and the
30 hour over-all credit require-
ments for the major remain.
Students will take pretty
much the same area courses as
before," Prof. Glen Waggoner
predicts. "Most students real-
ize the importance of securing
a well-rounded history b a c k-

The department had hoped
the entire college would follow
its lead. A proposal to that ef-
fect was given to the LSA cur-
riculum committee, but when
no action was taken the depart-
ment asked that at least i t s
courses all be given for four
hours credit.
All hope is not lost, however.
Fine says he hopes his depart-
ment's action will have a "band-

counselors and a lower stu-

unrelated to the other changes.

has only three counselors.
"We hope this expanded pro-
gram will help preserve the
spirit of 'breadth-plus-depth'
approach formally outlined by
the old field system," he adds.
The reaction of the students
to the department's changes
seems to be largely favorable.
Most appreciated, they say, is
the decision to raise the credit
