Conservationists plan

In the s p r i n g of 1965 the
University hosted t h efirst
teach-in on Vietnam. Next
spring the University will host
another first - a teach-in on
pollution and the environment.
Taking their cue from t h e
Vietnam teach-in, which swept
the country after its initial pop-
ularity here, the environmental
organizers expect the March
12-14 teach-in to be a pilot for
other campuses.
Right now planning is only in
the preliminary stages. Teach-
in sponsors, most from natural
resources school, want to in-
volve students from other disci-
plines and have set up a mass
meeting for tonight, 7:30 in the
UGLI Multipurpose Room.
The general theme of t h e
'U' dorms

teach-in will be to expose crit-
ical environmental problems
and to explore possible guide-
lines for action.
Organizers hope people from
outside the University will also
become involved in planning the
teach-in. High school students
and local governmental officials
- including one from the Hu-
ron R i v e r Watershed Council
and the Southeastern Michi-
gan Council of Governments -
have been invited to tonight's
The idea of an environmental
teach-in evolved from a conver-
sation between Sen. Gaylord
Nelson (D-Wis.) a n d Prof.
Spenser Havlick of the natural
resources school in August at a
water pollution conference in
Santa Barbara, Calif.
"Nelson seemed very enthus-

iastic about the idea," Havlick
explains. "He thinks universities
could play an important role in
getting action on pollution
Nelson is now calling for a
national day of environmental
teach-ins for late next spring
or early next fall-modeled af-
ter the one here. A separate of-
fice is being opened in Wash-
ington to coordinate national
planning for the teach-ins.
Art Hansen and Doug Scott,
both graduate students in nat-
ural resources, are coordinating
plans here. They will speak to-
night along with Prof. James
Swan, who will also give a slide
Hansen recently talked to
Nelson and others on Capitol
Hill and participate.d in a stu-
dent conference in West Virgin-

ia. The student group criticized
President Nixon for allotting
only 1.8 per cent of his $202 bil-
lion budget to environmental
Scott is a formcer a i d e to

of stricter pollution control.
Teach-in organizers h o p e
"people will become sensitized
about the problems so they be-
come effective a g e n t s of
change." They h o p e teach-in
reverberations echo back to
Meanwhile, they need money
for office expenses, preliminary
promotion and reserving build-
ings. They're requesting funds
from inside a n d outside the

the entire community directly.

have been a question of contro-
versy among teachers for in o r e
than 18 months. They met with
University officials last March
and a formal discussion, attended
by Cohen, took place Sept. 29.
The request for establishment
of the committee is their response
to the University's request, made
at the Sept. 29 meeting, that
teachers outline a program for
resolving the controversy.
The AAEA has asked in the past
that the University implement a
number of its demands concerning
the teacher training program.
These include more adequat°
preparation of student teachers,
more University supervision of
them, screening and, certifica-
tion of supervisory teachers and
increased compensation for sup-
ervisory teachers.
University officials pointed out
yesterday that Cohen's letter to
the AAEA is not an agreement to
their demands, but only expresses
an interest to "open channels of
"We want them to understand
that we're ready to talk any time,"
said Assistant Dean Lowell Beach.
"Our response to this is positive.
We attempted to do all we can on
this situation, but haven't been
a'ble to communicate. This letter
will hopefully show our commit-
ment to work with them."

For help in these instances,
you may turn to your resident
advisor. But what can he do?
"We don't like to think of
them as disciplinarians, we
like to think of them as ad-
visors," Hughes says. But what
do you do when a disciplinarian
is the only answer?
Leon West, director of West
Quad, says that in such cases
the director can ask the of-
fending party to leave the dorm.
And since dormito'y residence
is no longer r'eqtuiredl of fresh-
men, "director's will be more
willing to use this punishment
as a recourse, especially because
of the overcrowded situation in
University housing."

did little to help and gave no

Other men, maybe the same
man. have apparently invad-
ed other girls' dorms in a sim-
ilar way, and though at least
one suspect has been watched
by police, nothing has b e e n
done to curtail his activities.
"The housing office could at
least provide a night guard .
preferably male -- to challenge
all unescorted men who come
in after a certain hour," says
one irate Barbour girl.
Hughes says, however. that
the housing office has started a
program to hire student guards
for many dorms that need more
protection. However, some houses
have yet to benefit from this
program, including Barbour.
In order to aid prosecution of
thieves, vandals, and intruders,
signs are now posted clearly
wvarning: "This is not a public
building-access is limited to
residents and guests.'
As for dishonest dorm resi-
dents, Hughes says all the Uni-
ver.,ity can do is impress stu-
dents with the fact that "the
University is a metropolitan
community. and people from all
walks of life and types of back-
ground, including thieves, come
to the University."

Last year in Frieburg, Germany,
Miss Evans counlted "six strikes

The Junior year abroad program
is changing too. Its directors hope
to widen its appeal and increase
the number of students who may
participate--all the while main-
taining a high standard of acade-
mic excellence.
Last year the University's pro-
gram was granted $120,000 to help
house more students at Frieburg.
The donors, the New York based
Max Kade Foundation, called it
"the best program of its kind con-
ducted at this time."

. ..In an era when blacks are feverously reaching
for social independence and economic determina-
tion, it is imperative that black students explore the
opportunities available in business as a means to
that end ...
requests you to meet with Robert L. Ryan, who is a
second year black student in our MBA Program, to
discuss your interests in attending the Harvard Grad-
uate School of Business Administration.
The MBA Program at Harvard is based on the expe-
rience-oriented case method to develop the practical,
analytical, and decision-making capacities that are
the key to managerial effectiveness. Requirements
for admission to the two-year course leading to a
degree of Master in Business Administration (MBA) ,
include a college degree in any field of concentra-
tion. Generous financial aid makes it possible for
any student admitted to attend regardless of his
financial resources.
Mr. Ryan will be at The University of Michigan cam-
pus on Thursday, October 30 between 8:00 A.M. and
5:00 P.M. to interview all interested seniors. Inter-
views will be held in the Placement Service Office,
