Three residents of Greene House, East Quad, have recently
been the victims of a mistake by the United States selective
service. Frank Houchings, '68, who has maintained a 2.5 grade-
point average, .received official notification to report to the
local draft board in Oweso, Michigan, on November 2, for a
physical. Thomas Clark, University director of selective service,
said, "this is not an uncommon occurence and the notification is
probably due either to an incorrectly filled out or misplaced form.
The whole thing is quite likely a case of mixed-up signals."
Jack H. Shuler, attorney for Michigan Bell Telephone Com-
pany, was named national alumni chairman for the University's
$55 million fund drive. -Shuler's committee will appeal for funds
from University graduates.

University officials have confirmed reports that they have
declined to appear at a hearing set by the State Labor Mediation
Board for consideration of petitions filed by three unions-the
Teamsters, the Operating Engineers and the Washtenaw County..
Construction Trades Council. These petitions, which are filed..
under the amended Hutchinson Act, ask for certifications as
exclusive representatives of appropriate units of public employes
for purposes of collective bargaining. University administrators
feel the act as amended is not applicable to University procedure
with respect to its employes. The University has allowed those
wishing to join labor unions to do so and also has provided
grievance procedures and a union-dues checkoff for all employes.
University officials feel that since Civil Service employes are not
covered by the Hutchinson Act, neither should be University
employes since such employes are the responsibility of the
Regents who are elected by and responsible to the people of
In a letter to the City Council last night, President of Stu-
dent Government Council Gary Cunningham, '66, expressed
concern over the lack of student-council communication on the
motorcycle proposal.
The letter also informed the council that the Driver Regu-
lations Board had been meeting on the subject, and suggested
that a permanent student committee be set up to meet with the
council on this and other pertinent issues, "to maintain a high
level of discussion."

According to Richard Cutler, vice-president for student
affairs, there has been no administration reaction to the Student
Government Council's "DAMMIT" signs. The signs call for
student action to protest the University's failure to establish its
own bookstore. Cutler called "DAMMIT" a colloquialism, more
readily, acceptable than "damn."
The largest issue of "Generation" ever to be produced will
go on sale today. "Generation" includes all aspects of art .and is
published two times each semester. "This issue will be revolu-
tionary," announced Editor David Birch. "It will include an essay
by Carl Oglesby concerning Viet Nam and an essay on avant-
garde music which wil be one of the first comprehensive essays
written on the movement," he added. "A sermon-poem by Tony
Stoneburner, the winner of the Major Hopwood Award for Poetry,
will also highlight the issue."

The University will be. the site of the first state-wide student
initiated conference to be held on Thursday, Oct.'7. The main
topic of the "Know Your University Day" conference will deal,
with the problems of equalizing educational opportunity at the
college level., The conference is an attempt to arouse the state
citizenry to protest against present polices of universities regard-
ing the economics of financing and attending higher educational
institutions in Michigan. The ire of the student groups has been
roused by recent increases in costs of attending college. Students
are worried about the academically qualified yet financially
Brendon Sexton, director of the United Auto Workers Lead-
ership Center, will be the main speaker. There will also be talks
by both University students and non-University personnel. As a

Republican parties endorsed the
establishment of the Housing
Commission in statements releas-
ed yesterday. The Democrats stat-
ed that such a commission was
necessary to achieve safe, sani-
tary, low-cost housing and pledg-
ed support to bring about a fav-
orable election result.
Supply Behind Demand
The Republicans stated that
"the supply of housing had fall-
en behind the demand, particular-
ly at the low rent, end of the
spectrum." They added that their
support was "given in confidence
that the commission will first em-
bark on a thorough quantitative
study of low income family
-Councilman Robert P. Weeks,
a professor of English in the
College of Engineering, compared
the coming referendum to one
nearly - identical concerning a
housing, commission in Kalama-
zoo several years ago in which
the commission was defeated over
the city council's approval.
Major Issue
He added that one of the ma-
jor issues in the case of the Kala-
mazoo commission was the claim
by the opponents of the body that
its establishment would require a
considerable rise in taxes. Such a
claim is invalid in Ann Arbor, he
said, since the commission will
pay for itself.

"Overwhelming unprecedented response" was the feeling expressed by Student Government Council's Committee for a University Book-
store. At the end of their first day of campaigning, committee members Donald Resnick, '68, and Paula Cameron, '67, announced "we
have already received 5500 signatures after one day. This campus desires a University bookstore and our hope is that the Regents will
realize this." Committee members Mickey Eisenberg, '67, and Stephen Daniels, '67, revealed last night that since response has been.
so favorable, the committee has decided to alter their previous goal of 10,000 signatures. Shown above (left to right) are a campaign
sign, petitioning table and campaign buttons.

As Pressure
Indicates Another
Fee Hike, Foresees
Limitation of Flint
Last night in his State of the
University address, University
President Harlan Hatcher express-
ed fear that the University's "au-
tonomy under the elected Regents
which has proved its worth over
the years" is endangered by the
presence of "too many points of
Judgment and decision "
As an example of this possible
loss of autonomy, President
Hatcher cited the situation of the
planning procedures for buildings
on the University campus.
Formerly, bills allocating funds
for colleges to draw up building
plans have assigned money to in-
dividual schools. Under this year's
appropriations bills, however, all
such legislation is under the con-
trol of the state controller's office
which reviews the requests and
assigns the planning contracts it-
Considering this in relationship
to the construction of newer col-
leges, President Hatcher said it
was "something of an irony that
we are in danger, in some areas,
of saying that since some of the
newer institutions are at the out-
set unable fully to exercise their
autonomy, that autonomy should
be removed from all."
Other Pressures
Among other "burdensome"
pressures on the University cited
by Hatcher is a current legisla-
tive audit. As a result of the In-
sistence of Rep. Jack Paxton (D-
Birmingham), auditing of tuition
and dormitory accounts at the
University is now in progress.
This is the first time that Uni-
versity spending has been check-
ed at the request of a legislator.
President Hatcher pointed out
his third area of concern is the
governor's office and the Legisla-
ture. As a result of a $5.7 million
cutback in state appropriations
in the budget requested earlier
this year, University officials ex-
pressed much. concern over the
possible limiting of the expansion
of the Flint campus.
They foresaw the possible nec-
essity'of having to limit the oper-
ation of the Flint College and
the raising of tuition fees for the
entire University student body.
Enormous Growth
Switching from the topic of
university independence, Presi-
dent Hatcher spoke of the enor-
mous growth of the schools, col-
leges and universities since "World
War II. He pointed out that the


Fraternity System Reports Goals

Academic achievement, improv-
ed public relations, system ex-
pansion, welfare of member fra-
ternities and meeting the regula-
tions and requirements of the Uni-
versity in the areas of academ-
ics, conduct, health and safety
and membership selection prac-
tices were cited recently as the
goals of the fraternity system.
This was stated in a 'Report
to the Regents, Administration
and Faculty and the National In-
terfraternity Conference" issued
by the Interfraternity Council.
"In order for a fraternity sys-
tem to maintain and better it-
self, it must meet the demands
of ?t rapidly changing society and
the uniquerequirements of the
college or, university of which it
is an integral part, while at the
same time striving to maintain
the elements which are peculiar
to the fraternity itself as a liv-
ing unit and a social institution,"
IFC President Richard A. Hoppe,

of a society in a constant state of
flux." IFC is attempting to meet
this challenge, Hoppe said.
For the future, IFC is plan-
ning a more comprehensive sum-
mer rush program. Their main
obstacle is getting admission lists
for the individual use of fraterni-
ties. Currently, the lists are avail-
able only to IFC.
System expansion is hindered
by the large number of fraterni-
ties already on campus. and the
limited housing opportunities for
new chapters. An expansion com-
mittee is being established to con-
tact the national fraternities that
have no chapter here and work
on housing problems.
IFC also intends to review the
pledge programs being used by
fraternities on campus which are
often the cause of problems in
academics and public relations.
They may consider shortening the
current requirement of a 10-week

tributed to the Regents, all de-
partment heads and many ad-
ministration officials. Copies will
be made available in faculty
lounges. The report will also be
submitted to the National Inter-
fraternity Conference.
The report is divided into six
sections devoted to organization
and goals, services to member fra-
ternities, the University and the

community, and also, new pro-
grams and the future and con-
tinuity of the fraternity system.
An introduction written b&
Hoppe lists the advantages of fra-
ternity life as a living unit and
a part of the educational exper-
ience while an appendix lists the
44 fraternities in the system and
gives their academic standing for
Fall 1964 and Winter 1965.
