Turnout heavy



in SGC


In a heavy first day of balloting in the Student Govern-
ment Council election, some 5,000 students turned out to vote.
Election director Bill Vickers summed up the general
reaction when he said, "It's the bookstore issue that's doing it.
From 10 to 20 per cent of the ballots only have votes on the
Vickers also pointed out that voting is usually split evenly
between the two days "and with that in mind, we could have
a record turnout."
The previous record was set in November 1966 when the

The Eastern Michigan Univer-
sity disciplinary review board has
scheduled an appeal hearing onl
the case of the Second Coming, an
underground newspaper, f o r to-
morrow afternoon.
In a hearing Sunday night, the
review board, composed of three
students and three faculty mem-
bers, agreed to hear the adminis-
tration appeal of a Student Court'
decision exempting the Second
Coming from administrative reg-
The Student Court ruled Nov. 1
that an EMU regulation prohibit-
ing s a 1 e of "commercial" items
without the permission of the vice
president for business anid finance
did not apply to newspapers.
In the decision, the Court said
the regulation endangered the
First Amendment guarantee of
freedom of speech and press, and
said the "only legal means of cen-
sorship" available to the adminis-
tration was through civil courts.
Thomas Aceto, EMU d e a n of
students, termed t h e Student
Court ruling "unacceptable" and
appealed the case to the discipli-
nary review board.
The disciplinary review board is
empowered by the EMU student
body constitution to make the "fi-
nal judicial decision" on the case
by either' upholding the Student
Court or by reinterpreting the reg-
ulation and sending the case back
for a retrial.
EMU administrators have inter-
preted "final judicial decisions" to
mean they have the power to ov-
errule the review board on an ar'-
bitrary basis however.
"The student constitution is a
pretty inadequate document," said
Robert Zumwinkle, vice president
for student affairs. Zumwinkle
claimed the administration h a d

Zumwinkle and Aceto took uni-'
lateral disciplinary action last
Friday when they suspended EMU
student the Rev. David Barsky, 20,
for distributing the paper on cain-

the damage it, suffered in last
spring's election, which many peo-

There was a lot of dissatisfaction
with SGC."
One result of that dissatisfac-
tion was the action taken by Tay-~
for House in South Quad. The
house council voted unanimously
to ban all campaigning in the
house and urged its members not
to vote in the SGC election as a
form of protest. The house also
used its own funds to print leaf-

explained the reasons for the ac-
tion. "We feel that SGC has been
spending its money on projects

course, there is the issue of the
run-off last spring, which we feel
was a hoax," he said.

preme Court upheld today the
power of university police to ar-
rest students for displaying "dis-
ruptive" antiwar signs during
silent protests of the Vietnamn war.
The court took his step by re-
fusing to review the conviction
of Robert K. Zwicker, a student
at the University of Wisconsini

palmed boy outside a university
placement office. The vote was

The napalm picture Zwicker held

In other action, the court fol-
lowed up its recent crackdown on
southern school segregation by
turning down an appeal of 44
Louisiana school districts which
sought to kep "freedom of choice"
school systems.
The high court took the action
by refusing to review a lower cour't
