gents - as a result of the action
on Sept. 19 - might accept this
alternative, but he considered it
an appeasement. According to Mc-
Laughlin it would be extremely
difficult for students to raise the
necessary funds by themselves.
Van Der Hout said that "it is
obvious that having been blatant-
ly ignored by going through the
'proper channels,' students will
not get a bookstore unless they
demonstrate their voice through
another means." McLaughlin, who
relinquished the chair to Darryl
Gorman to speak on the issue,
said the action "will not alienate
any of the Regents who are not
already on the wrong side of the
fence.'
Van Der Hout, McLaughlin, Liv-
ingston, Carol Hollenshead and
Bob Nelson supported the motion,
while Roger Keats and Mike Far-
rell voted against it.
Farrell argued that the rally
and subsequent action would only
set the more conservative Regents
further against the bookstore.
"There are other means of doing
things," he said. At one point,
however, he advocated postponing
the rally until the Regents Oc-
tober meeting.
Council also agreed to contact
other groups for support of the
rally.
The University is currently the
only school in the Big Ten which
does not have a university book-
store.
The Regents opposed the book-
store generally because they felt
that the $1.75 fee assessment
would be considered a tuition in-
crease by the state Legislature.
The reasoning was that next year's
state appropriations would be cut
on the assumption the University
had raised more money in student
fees.
Other Regents were dubious of
the financial soundness of having
student-dominated board of direc-
tors running the bookstore, as
SGC had earlier suggested.

In Washington, U.S. authorities
expected the state funeral services
for President Ho would bring a
confrontation in Hanoi of the
feuding leaders of Communist
China and the Soviet Union that
could pose deep-seated problems
for Ho's successor.
Vietnam experts believed it
would be less easy for the three
top-ranking survivors of Ho's re-
gime to walk the tightrope between
Moscow and Peking than it was
for their departed leader.
Peking announced without delay.

mediately who would go, but it
was believed that Premier Alexei
Kosygin would represent the So-'
viet government and party.

Associate registrar Douglas
Woolley said 13,300 registration
envelopes were mailed. "It was an
expensive process." Woolley said.
He noted that some packets were
sent to out-of-date addresses and
some students who traveled dur-

after the deadline.

cause she planned to drop and add

the vice president for academic
affairs said the two new optical
scan forms - a course election
change form and an election re-
quest form were "run in parallel."
Both the new forms and the
more familiar ones were filled out
at Waterman tables.
Zimmerman said, "We re try-
ing something new. If it works
we will be able to automate more
of the registration process."
"We did have some design prob-
lems with the election request
form," he said.
The idea, still a few years in
the future, is to eliminate Water-

process.
