Stuent activist groups probably will sponsor a conference
this fall to discuss University investments in South Africa, Vice-
President for Student Affairs Richard Cutler said yesterday. The
activists have 'contended that the University is giving indirect
support to apartheid by maintaining these investments.
John Eadie, Grad, has officially submitted his resignation as
Inter-Quadrangle Council president. Under one interpretation of
the IQC constition's presidential succession clause, the vacancy
will automatically be filled by the organization's vice-president,
Lee Hornberger, '67. However, East Quad Council has challenged
this interpretation in a complaint filed with Joint Judiciary

Student Government Council will begin its round of fall
meetings tonight by discussing the proposed University bookstore

organizing student apartment-dwellers. In addition, Vice-Presi-

on recent changes in and the future direction of the Office of
Student Affairs.

Soph Show '65 will present the musical comedy, "A Funny

University officials have said they are surprised and pleased
that Flint area labor unions have taken an active interest in
keeping the University's Flint College branch operating. The
possibility that the branch will soon be replaced by an independ-
ent state school has caused considerable controversy in the past
six months.
With Regental action on the 1966-67 general funds budget
request less than a month away, University officials have still not
announced whether the new freshman program at Flint College
will be continued after this year. A 170-200 student freshman
class-the first in the college's history-is expected to register
at Flint next week. In a controversial ruling last April, the State
Board of Education recommended that the new freshman program
be discontinued after this year and that the heretofor two-year
upperclassman Flint branch be replaced by a new tax-supported
institution as soon as possible.
A high state education source said yesterday that several
legislators are talking about creating the position of "state cam-
pus planning architect" to coordinate central campus planning
at Michigan's tax-supported colleges.
Long Distance
University President Harlan Hatcher is one of about 500
officials from 240 universities attending the week-long Fourth
General Conference of the International Association of Univer-
sities in Tokyo.
The National Science Foundation has granted the University
$40,000 for two independent research projects. A one-year grant
of $25,000 will support research on behavior 'resulting from infant
brain damage; Prof. Robert Isacson of the psychology department
will direct this project. The remaining $15,000 will be given to

State Board Gives
Qualified Approval
To Revision Proposal
The State Board of Education
has given a qualified approval to
a plan to reorganize the depart-
ment of public instruction, Alex-
ander Kloster, the department's
acting superintendent, said yes-
The proposal is now being ex-
amined by agencies and officials
to be affected by the restructur-
ing, Kloster, explained. On Sept.
23, the board will take a final look
at the plan and then submit it to
the governor.
The reorganization was neces-
sitated by a provision of Mich-
igan's constitution, which set Dec.
31, 1965 as the deadline for re-
ducing the number of major state
agencies to 20.

Nations To Vote
Under Old Rules
At Next Session
United Nations General Assembly
finally ended its paralyzed 19th
session yesterday after agreeing
to put aside the United States-
Soviet dispute over peace-keeping
assessments and return to normal
voting procedures at its next meet-
The session had opened last
Dec. 1 under the threat of a U.S.-
Soviet confrontation and had
averted such a showdown only by
a no-vote truce which permitted
only a few housekeeping decisions
by unanimous consent.
Even the agreement to abandon
the controversy over article 19 of
the UN charter was approved
without a record vote, but all the
key countries including the U.S,
and the Soviet Union had accept-
ed its wording in advance.
Lose Vote
Article 19 provides that coun
tries two years behind in paying
UN assessments will lose their
assembly vote. Until Aug. 16 the
U.S.-had insisted that these pen-
alties would have to be invoked
against the Soviet Union, France
and 10 other delinquent countries
of the assembly attempted a vote.
The only sour note in the wind-
up proceedings was sounded by
Halim Budo, Albania's deputy
foreign minister, who claimed the
solution was a resounding defeat
for the U.S. and that the Johnson
administration had backed down
only because it had no' other
It was Budo who was respon-
sible for the only vote taken by
the 19th session. In February he
unexpectedly offered a motion
that the assembly "embark upon
its normal work."
Challenged Ruling
Assembly President Alex Qual-
son-Sackey of Ghana ruled him
out of order, but he challenged
the ruling and demanded a roll
call vote on his challenge.
The U.S. decided not to invoke
article 19 on the ground that this
was a procedural matter. Only
tiny Mauritania voted with Al-
bania: 97 countries, including the
U.S. and the Soviet Union, voted
against the motion.
After that the assembly recess-
ed to give a special peace-keeping
committee a chance to resolve the
deadlock. Thehbig break came
when U.S. Ambassador Arthur J.
Goldberg told the 33-nation com-
mittee two weeks ago that the
U.S. had reversed its position.

approved by the assembly yester-

works with the child for the en-
tire semester.
The project has been in exist-
ense for four years and started
out with 35 students who were in-
terested in trying to solve the
problem of the culturally deprived
child in Ann Arbor.
Today there are approximately
140-150 tutors, mostly students at
the University beyond the first
semester of their freshman year.
"The families of the children
are most supportive of the pro-
gram" Rudi Kalafus, president of
the project, said. "They are more
than willing to help their chil-
The tutoring is done in thirteen
churches in the Ann Arbor area.
Sleet said the tutor tries to ar-
range a schedule which will best
suit his student but which is flex-

ible enough to cope with unexpect-
ed changes.
Graduate Advisors
For every six undergraduate
students who tutor there is a
graduate student who acts as an
advisor to the tutors. He does not
tutor but is merely there to help
when he is needed.
Part of the job of the tutor is
to teach concepts to these chil-
dren clearly enough so that they
can apply them to their everyday
lives. According to Sleet, some of
the concepts taught are courage,
creativity, competition and the,
ability to comply with existing
Moreover, Sleet said, the project
tries to teach the child who does
not plan to go on to college to at
least fill out an application form
for a job and to pass an employ-.

ment test and to make those
children who are interested in
college aware of the college board
standards and the scholarships'
available to them.
Sleet explained that there is
often a communications problem
between the children and the tu-
tor. For one thing, children often
have a language of their own and
the tutor must learn to under-
stand them. Moreover, while most
of the children have been exposed
to middle class people and values
through television, very often the
college student is coming into con-
tact with lower class values for the
first time.
.Most of the tutoring is done in
the fields of reading and arithe-
metic. Those people tutoring are
not necessarily in the field of
education nor any related field.
"They are individuals who are in-
terested in helping others and
gaining an education themselves,"
Sleet explained.
