declared last Thursday that "under no circumstances," could1

these proposals. In addition, the'
school will turn classes into

caucus listed nine demands, in-

Another significant proposal en-j

plans for creation of an ad hoc
student-faculty assembly which
would oversee structural and cur-

The assembly would work to
implement the ideas concerning

organization of the departmental

The assembly would also make,

also said the government agreed
to the route after the New Mobi-

"The New Mobilization C o m-
mittee has offered every assur-
ance that order will be maintain-

Kleindienst said.
Leaders of the New Mobilization
reacted with satisfaction to the
government's decision. But, they
said, the government is "not giv-
ing anything to which the people
are not entitled," adding that theyj
were "basically happy and ready
to move now."
Asked if they were disappointed
at not being allowed to bring the1
mass protest directly in front of

Under terms of the agreement
the committee will provide 2,000
parade marshals to keep demon-

marshals to keep crowds away
from government buildings on the
other side of the thoroughfare.

party from the 82nd Airborne Di-
vision flew here from Ft. Bragg,
N.C., to prepare for possible move-
ment of paratroopers to the cap-
ital in connection with the week-

to meet,
Students and members of the
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) will
sit down with Regents Nov. 20
in a "mutual education session"
to discuss communication among
all levels of the University, and
student-faculty participation in
determining priorities and long-
range planning.
Topics for the 11 hour meet-
ing were decided yesterday at a
meeting of SACUA and represent-
atives of various student organi-
The Regents passed a resolution
at last month's meeting to s e t
aside time to talk with students
and faculty about campus prob-
lems. There had been criticism
that communication between Re-
gents and faculty and students
have been inadequate.
SACUA proceeded from t h e r e
and contacted student leaders in
the schools and colleges, stu-
dent organizations and Student
Government Council to form a
group that could decide on topics
to discuss -with the Regents.
Discussion of 'student partici-
pation in formulating University
priorities and long-range plan-
ning was strongly supported. Neil
Hollinshed, Grad, said, "Students
don't know what is going on. They
are continually reacting to crisis
"Students should be in on long-
range planning and should know
what the budget is. The V i c e
President for Student Affairs re-
presents the administration-we
need student representation be-
fore the Regents."
SGC Executive Vice President
Marc Van der Hout advocated the
establishment of a student com-
mittee that could investigate both
long-range planning and the in-
creased involvement of students
in making high level decisions.
