Executive Vice-President Marvin L. Neihuss said yesterday
that no decision has been reached by the University on how
the investigation of Regent Eugene B. Power's business relation-
ships to the University will be conducted. The Ann Arbor News
4 quoted Neihuss as explaining that decisions on the investigation
will wait until Power returns from a trip to the Far East.
According to University Secretary Erich Walter, Power will
not be back from his trip in time for the next Regents' meeting.
The trip, which includes visits to Japan and Viet Nam, is expected
to take six weeks.
President Harlan Hatcher announced Saturday that the
University has accepted Power's request for a review of- his
business relationships and a report to the Regents as soon as
possible. President Hatcher, attending a convention in New York
until Thursday, was unavailable for comment last night,

Five South Vietnamese students touring this country under
the sponsorship of the American Youth Council have been in-
vited to come to the University this Friday and Saturday, Oct. 29
and 30, Gary Cunningham, Student Government Council presi-
dent, said yesterday.
The students, including two Marxists, the vice-president of
the student government at the Buddhist University and the
president of the student government of Saigon University, will
appear with four University students-two opposing and two
supporting administration policies in Viet Nam-for a question
period, Cunningham explained. A general discussion period will
The emphasis will be on eliciting the views of the Vietnamese
students, he added.
Cunningham and James Kropf, '66, UAC president, whose
organizations are helping sponsor the event along with campus
groups both supporting and opposing the war, are having an
organizational meeting today at 4 p.m. in the SGC offices on
the first floor of the SAB. All interested students have been
invited to attend.

Inter-Quadrangle Council last night recommended it merge
with Assembly Association to form a completely new co-
educational residence hall government.
The merger plan is a result of research by an IQC study
committee which reported that the proposed system would in-
crease efficiency by eliminating duplication of effort, unifying
and coordinating activities and aiding the creation of govern-
ments in new co-ed residence halls as they are opened.
A joint committee will be established to consider a proposed
constitution and means to accomplish the merger. The combined
organization should be operating before the end of the spring
Presently, Assembly represents approximately 7000 women,
and IQC nearly 3500 men.
There has been a marked increase in membership of Students'
for a Democratic Society both on this campus and across the
nation in the past week, Eric Chester, '66, president of Voice
Political Party, the University chapter of SDS, reported yesterday.
The paid membership in Voice has increased from 30 to 60.
Chester ;ttributed this increase to the "successful demon-
stration in Ann Arbor during the International Days of Protest
and to Atty. Gen. Nicholas Katzenbach's statement" indicating
the Justice Department would conduct an investigation of SDS.
Carl Oglesby, national president of SDS, related SDS's na-
tional membership increase to the Viet Nam protests, which he
said have come under recent "red-baiting" attack.

Protest against the war in Viet

night in a meeting held to discuss
the draft and alternatives to it.

SDS, spoke before a group of more

Act of 1948.
Lauder began his talk by asking
the group, "How many of you
would be willing to kill 1,000,000
Jews, 10.000 Catholics, or even
1,000 Vietnamese?"
When there were no affirmative
replies, he added, "I would sug-
