An Editorial...
THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE that a $1 million gift from
University Regent Eugene Power for the construction of a
theatre will be announced tonight at the President's Premiere for
this fall's Association of Producing Artists season.
We recognize the University's need for a modern repertory
theatre. But there are implications in this gift which clearly call
for public consideration of its effects on the University.
The specific issue raised is where the additional money to
build the theatre can be obtained. Planners have set a $3 million
price tag as a minimum. The University will have to supply at
least $2 million to complete the project.
BUT WHERE CAN THE MONEY be obtained? Administra-
tive officials have ruled out the possibility of federal or state
money, since these sources are usually reserved for academic or re-
search structures. A third alternative, private money, seems un-
likely. The theatre's name will,.already be reserved for Power, and
hence donors will prefer to look for other projects on which they
can inscribe their own names.
The final and ultimate source is University money, the
funds which are used to pay salaries, to stock the library and to
establish new academiic departments.
Officials can only speculate whether these projects would
be jeopardized by a drain of several million dollars over the next
fe' years. They are quite certain, however, that marginal-'
but crucial-projects such as the residential college or the Center
for Research on Learning and Teaching will be jeopardized, since
they must rely on other, overtaxed resources for their support.
We are particularly concerned that the residential college,
a small liberal arts institution that could restore the feeling of
personalized instruction here, may well never get off the ground
because of this diversion of funds. And the Legislature will never
foot the entire bill for the college.
In fact, the residential college is in danger of being shelved,

it is le who has encouraged the commitment of $2 million in
precious educational dollars to the theatre. It is President Hatch-
er's responsibility, thus far neglected, to point out to Power the
desperate need of funds for a residential college instead of offer-
ing generalities on how well plans for the program are pro-
gressing when they are stalled for lack of funds.
The University community should also be concerned with the
feelings of other academic officers who represent the faculty.
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns strongly
regretted the allocation of University funds 'for a theatre, even
though he was a leading proponent of the repertory company
in Ann Arbor. Heyns' reason: this money belongs to the fac-
ulty and to the students (since it comes from their research and
their tuition).
Other officials are known to share Heyns' view. They feel
keenly that the faculty has a right to plot the growth of this
institution in a meaningful manner and not have it laid out,
arbitrarily, by one Regent and perhaps one or two administrative
SO IT IS TO YOU, Regent Power, that we appeal. Your gift
tonight, no matter how well intended, will only be detrimental
to the academic growth of this institution.
If you want your name emblazoned on a building, let it be
af i, he , re 'rn . ge structures. If you would prefer
anonymity, add the money to the pile of private resources that
the fund raisers are collecting.
Do not commit this institution, always hard-pressed for
financial resources, to an allotment of several million dollars that
are simply not available for a cultural project.
WE APPRECIATE your generosity, but we ask you to recon-
sider your judgment.,

A 310-acre, 18-hole golf course will be built for the University
on Regent Frederick Matthaei's Radrick Farm on Geddes Road
near Ann Arbor sources indicate. The course and accompanying
driving range will be among the largest and plushest facilities in
the country. Membership selection procedures have not been
decided upon, but it is rumored that the course will be limited
to faculty and administrators. However, Matthaei said that all
over membership authority rests with the University administra-
tion and that alternate membership policies are being considered.

The Union Board of Directors has temporarily turned down
a proposal that the Union supply the space for a student book-
store on the basis of two reports that assessed the space needed
at far more than, the Union had available. The board has not,
however, turned down the proposal completely, and is waiting
for more information.
The Student Advisory Committee on the Residential College
was given a tentative building time schedule by Dean Burton
Thuma, faculty director of the proposed college, at its meeting
yesterday afternoon. According to Thuma, the faculty committee
for the college is going to request the Regents to make a commit-
ment in October assuring the construction of the college's first
dorm by 1968. If this commitment is made, the committee will
then publish,; and distribute to freshmen entering in 1967, a
publicity booklet describing the establishment of temporary
quarters for the college's approximately 200 students in East
Quadrangle in 1967.

Only 31,267 students, out of the University's total fall enroll-
ment of 34,453, are actually enrolled on University campuses,
University Registrar Edward E. Groesbeck has explained, with
3,186 students in extension courses accounting for the difference.
This means that administrators missed their estimated fall
enrollment, of 30,900, by only 367 students as compared with last
year's underestimate of 503.

On Proposed Ruling Second Caper
After a, quiet football weekend, - -
the wheels of controversy have
begun to turn on the subject of Fw.~
City Councilman John Hathaway's
proposed motorcycle ordinance.
In the Office of Student-Com-
munity Affairs yesterday the Driv-
ing Regulations Board met to dis-
cuss the proopsal as a group for
the first time. The meeting of
the board was requested last
Thursday night by Student Gov-
ernment Council in a motion sub-
mitted by Charles Cooper, '66.
The board is made up of two
members of SGC, one from Joint
Judiciary Council, one from Grad-4
uate Student Council, one admin-
istrator from the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs and the vice-presi-
dent for student affairs."
In the meeting yesterday, the
group took no official action but
did discuss many points perti-
nent to the matter. A second meet- \
ng will be heldtThursday, when"
the members of the board will of- \44>,

cluded in yesterday's discussion:

A dissident group of members
of Voice Political Party and others
sympathetic to them have declared
their intention to establish an-
other chapter of Students for a
Democratic Society on this cam-
pus. At this time Voice Political
Party is the only recognized chap-
ter of SDS at the University.
The new group stated in a man-
ifesto released yesterday that
Voice had violated the democratic
traditions and procedures of SDS
because of its hierarchal structure
which allegedly discouraged newer
or less experienced members from
expressing their opinions and be-
cause its policies and programs
had been "irresponsible in the
context of its ideology."
The dispute grew out of an or-
ganizational meeting last Thurs-
day in which several amendments
proposing to change the adminis-
trative structure of Voice were
discussed. Those in the dissident
group advocated a less centralized
administrative organization.
One of the proposals suggested
that a collegium of officials be
established, that is, a group of ad-
ministrative officials in various
areas who would automatically be
called for re-election at every odd
meeting. Another suggestion was
that an administrative chairman-
ship be set up which would not
have the power to make policy.
The meeting finally adopted an
amendment that established a
chairman and six other officers,
similar to the former organization
of Voice, who would take care of
duties such as publicity, programs,
education, etc. Members of the
dissident group objected to the
new structure which, they felt,
would be more centralized than
the old.
After the adoption of this
amendment the Voice meeting
held an election for the post of
chairman. Eric Chester, '66, Alan
Jones, '67, and Stan 'Nadel, '66,
had been nominated. Again several
members objected to this pro-
cedure as Jones and Nadel were
not present to explain their views.
Their objections were overridden
largely by supporters of Chester
who was then elected to the office
of chairman.
Voice members who were dis-
satisfied with the procedings of
the Thursday meeting, met the
next day to draw up a manifesto
explaining their objections to
Voice policies and their decision
to form a second chapter of SDS.
