Seventy-Five Years of Editorial Freedom






Ernest R. Zimmerman, recent-
ly appointed assistant to the vice-
president for academic affairs, is
working with other administrators
in the OAA to eliminate ineffi-
ciency by creating a centralized
center of University information.
They are also streamlining the
policies which determine the num-
ber of students who are admitted
to the University each year.
In order to aid the Office of
Academic Affairs in formulating
its admission policies, Zimmerman

serves as a unifying agent for the
Office of Registration and Records
and the Office of Institutional Re-
These offices collect information
on fees, housing, and on-campus
residents and publish it.
This information, plus faculty
and staff recommendations on ad-
mission requirements, all help to
decide how many students can be
accommodated at the University.
In addition, there are several
types of duplicated effort which
Are being eliminated by the crea-

tion of a centralized information
Before the creation of Zimmer-
man's office late this summer, the
organizational structure of the var-
ious OAA departments lacked both
representation of their specific
needs to the vice-president for
academic affairs and coordination
of their diverse undertakings. Du-
plication of effort was often the
Moreover, because individual
records were maintained by in-
terrelated offices -such as regis-
tration and records, student af-
fairs, off-campus housing, and ad-

missions, much confusion and
costly delay frequently occurred
when one office ndeded another's
With this plan for centralized
control of information, any time
material is required by an aca-
demic department, Zimmerman's
office can readily supply it in the
desired form.
In an effort to stimulate the
growth of this "bank of informa-
tion," Zimmerman has become in-
volved in a number of varied ac-
Working in association with the

data processing center, Zimmer-
man discusses and analyzes stu-
dents' pre-classification program
requests. He, along with other ad-
ministrators, then seeks to deter-
mine specific needs of the Uni-
versity's colleges and to coordi-
nate their activity.
All significant information con-
cerning such faculty, student, and
departmental needs will be in-
creasingly processed and organized
through the use of computers and
similar statistical analyzing ma-
chines, Zimmerman said. These
data will be made available for
potential users' needs, with the

assurance that the material is
uniform and unified in presenta-
Zimmerman sees this task of co-
ordination and centralization as a
"sizable portion of responsibility"
in his administrative position.
"We are going to go as far as
we possibly can in this area of
unification," he said. "Our goal is
to make sure that all the infor-
mation centers are ultimately co-
ordinated and that the individual
needs of the various departments
are realized. We are going to take
advantage of every potential cap-
ability in an effort to eliminate

wasteful duplication and as much
routine work as possible."
Considering the need for his po-
sition, Zimmerman said that the
"vice-presidency for academic af-
fairs is such a monumental job
that responsibility must be dele-
gated. It is through this division
of labor that the activities of the
major interest groups in the aca-
demic society of the University are
pulled together. I feel that we are
progressing rapidly in our unifi-
cation tasks, and I think that
many advancements can be ex-
pected in the area of statistical
coordination in the future."

The Office of Student Organizations and Activities an-
nounced yesterday they would not step up their inspection of

one official said.

In judicial action last night, the Interfraternity Council
executive committee fined Zeta Beta Tau $75 for conduct un-
becoming a fraternity because the fraternity had a party at
which chaperons were not present. There was some doubt about
whether there had been alcoholic beverages consumed but the
executive committee found no evidence which would adequately
support the suspicions.
Vice-President for Research A. Goeffrey Norman said yester-
day that information on the location of the new Atomic Energy
Commission accelerator is being kept secret. He added that the

Warren VanEgmond, '68, chairman of Young Americans for
Freedom (YAF), said yesterday that YAF is not at present
planning any opposition to this weekend's protests on the war
in Viet Nam. Speaking personally, VanEgmond, said, "I'm willing
to let them have their say. If they have no good ideas, people
will know it." He added, however, that some members of YAF
might plan some opposition at a membership meeting tonight at
7:30 in Room 3B of the Union.

The $4,3000,000 building given top priority by the state
legislature's Senate-House Capital Outlay Committee will be a
modern language building, John G. McKivett, assistant to the
vice-president in charge of business and finance said last night.
"Committee 'action indicates," McKivett said, "that they
expect to approve the construction of this building at their next
legislative session in the spring of '65. The building would be
approved from preliminary plans to be submitted by Feb. 1. Bids
for the construction of the building would be approved by mid-
year of 1966. The proposed site of the building is near Burton
'Tower, north of Hill Auditorium."

Perhaps portending the events of the International Days
of Protest this weekend, five Michigan State University students
were arrested yesterday for passing out literature in front of a

Howard Harrison, Peter Hornbeck, Fred Hanvrin, James

Sit-Down Protest
In Milwaukee, University of
Wisconsin students will attempt a
sit-down protest at the home of
the parents of Gen. Maxwell Tay-
lor, forner ambassador to South
Viet Nam, tomorrow. Booths in
many local high schools will be set{
up to distribute information on
how to avoid and protest the draft.
While the University of Wiscon-
sin is not officially opposing the
protests, the Action Committee,
not officially recognized nor back-
ed by the university, plans a march
to Truax Air Force Base. They
will attempt to make a citizen's
arrest of Col. Lester Arrowsmith,
base commander, on the grounds
that he is an "accessory to mur-

and crimes against humanity in

On Action Saturday;
Jail Vigil Scheduled
Campus demonstrations includ-
ing two parades, a memorial serv-
ice for the dead in Viet Nam, an
all-night vigil and a sit-in at the
local draft board have been sched-
uled for the International Days
of Protest, October 15-16. The
plans for the demonstrations were
discussed and approved at a meet-
ing last night of the groups spon-
soring the protest.
The group first discussd the
motions passed by the Ann Arbor
City Council Monday night con-
cerning the requests submitted for
parades and loudspeaker trucks to
be included in the demonstrations.
The council approved two parade
routs and the use of stationary
sound equipment. In another mo-
tion, however, it has prohibited
any activities on Saturday, the
day of the homecoming football
Because the ban on political ac-
tivities seriously hampered the
planned protest, several members
of the group had met with city
officials to clarify the council's
decision. The city attorney indi-
cated that marches, meaning pa-
rades on a sidewalk, and station-
ary loudspeakers were to be allow-
ed at all times. The group then
decided to abide by the council's
decision, with the exception of us-
ing bullhorns on the Saturday
Final Schedule
The final schedule of activities
begins with a vigil starting Sat-
urday morning on the Diag. At 2
p.m. there will be a parade to the
Selective Service office where some
members of the group will com-
mit civil disobedience. That eve-
ning there will be a march coordi-
nated with Homecoming activities
that will move to the Ann Arbor
jail for an all-night vigil in sym-
{ pathy with those arrested for civil
Saturday morning there will be
a picket line on both sides of State
Street until approximately 11:30
when the demonstrators will move
to the stadium for leafletting. Aft-
er the game will be a memorial
service at Wines Field conducted
by several ministers from the Ann
Arbor area followed by a long
march and rally to culminate the
'ROTC Raffle'
The group readily approved the
idea of a "ROTC Raffle" to dram-
atize the fact that many American
soldiers will die in Viet Nam. The
percentage of ROTC seniors who
are likely to be killed in Viet Nam
after they graduate will be cal-
culated and the corresponding
number of names drawn from a
hat. The group will then place an
advertisement in the form of an
obituary in The Daily announcing
that these men are. statistically.

This weekend's Homecoming,
"nUMbers 65," offers an exciting
spectrum of events for both stu-
dents and alumni.
New this year is a parade, con-
sisting of over 60 units, includ-

incorporates the former Michigras
parade. Michigras was eliminated
due to trimester. The parade will

down Washington, S. State, S.
