paign for a bookstore. Student
petitions can be obtained showing
widely-based support. Parents can
be contacted to write both Regents
and legislators. Other organiza-
tions-unions, clergy, high school
administrators-can be mobilized
into action through contacts made
at Know Your University Day,
run by UMSEU with the help of
many GROUP members. These
forces can be used to compel the
state legislature to appropriate
and the Regents to use new money
for new projects to better student
economic welfare.
In conclusion, since actions
rather than words are the crux of:
GROUP's philosophy, it should be
pointed out that three of the six
economic measures recommended
by GROUP only last semester
have either enacted or commenc-
ed already-the $1.25 minimum
wage, the invalidation of the Re-
gents 1929 ruling as a criterion
for judging economic measures,
and the establishment of a stu-
dent bookstore. And it wa s
GROUP people who either alone
or in conjunction with others
brought about these changes.
ACADEMIC REFORMS
As members of the Student Gov-
ernment Council GROUP mem-
bers will continue their concern
for the academic quality of their
University. In a dynamic institu-
tion revisions a r e constantly
needed, and it is one of SGC's
functions to be attuned to student
opinions and needs in this area.
A few things which we think need
immediate attention are:
1. An improvement in the coun-
seling system, to make counseling
meaningful rather than perfunc-
tory.
2. Constant revision of distribu-
tioh requirements toward provid-
ing the student with a truly liber-
al arts education.
3. Reevaluation of the credit
hour system to make it more
equitable.
4. The re-examination of the
entire grading system, with new
orientation toward pass-fail
standards.
5. The provision of increased
study space.
6. The granting of academic
credit hours to those involved in
major campus activities so that
their number of courses may be
reduced, therefore enabling them
to devote sufficient time to those
courses which they are taking.
UNIVERSITY POLICY REFORM
The implicit doctrine of "in
loco parentis" has recently shown
signs of a quiet, gradual demise:
women's hours, for example, have
been liberalized, and junior wo-
men have been granted apartment
permission. Yet if the doctrine is
no longer applicable, why do many
remnants remain?
GROUP advocates apartment
permission for sophomore women,
with concurrent curfew privileges
given to sophomore women in
housing units. The question of
hours for freshmen women should
be submitted to the freshmen in a
referendum.
OUTSIDE POLITICAL
GROUP supports a re-evalua-
tion of the University's role in dis-
ciplining students who have vio-
lated local, state, or federal civil
or criminal statutes: the question
of jurisdiction is a salient one.
GROUP advocates continued
and determined support and de-
termined support and defense of
the principle of free speech and
academic freedom at the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
We wholeheartedly endorse the
University's present liberal speak-
er policy, and reaffirm the right
of any student, faculty member,
or student and faculty organiza-
tions to comment on matters of
concern, and reiterate SGC's right
and obligation to express opinions
on matters which directly or in-
directly affect the student body
and the University.

GROUP PLATFORM
GROUP stands for Governmen-
tal Revision of University Policy.
We are an organization that has
dedicated itself to benefiting the
student within the context of his'
stay at the University of Mich-
igan, as mutual beneficiaries of,
and contributors to the University
education, should stare in the de-
cisions which affect this educa-
tion, Toward this end, we have
chosen to work within Student
Government Council, the existing
political structure of student opin-
ion. Our aim is not only to al-
leviate undesirable conditions at
the University of Michigan and to
create better conditions, but to
modify and improve the entire
decision-making process of the
University so that students will be
able to affect the policies and ac-
tions on which their education de-
pends.
GROUP's concrete goals are
motivated by indignation at exist-
ing conditions and a realistic ap-
praisal of the prospects for
change. The economic situation
of students in Ann Arbor ranges,
in various market areas, from
adequate to deplorable. Academic
policies and standards are by no
means ideal. The University's re-
lationships to the local, state, and
national communities and gov-
ernments are nebulous, and com-
munication between students, fac-
ulty, Administration, and espe-
cally Regents is, when it exists,
often formal or too desultory, and
consequently unproductive. The
University is becoming an educa-
tional behemoth in the sense that
it can affect individuals concern-
ed with it while at the same time
it can remain unaffected by these
same individuals.

available, most students cannot go
outside the immediate Ann Arbor
area to make necessary purchases
of books, supplies, food, and cloth-
ing. Their immobility also pre-
vents them from living at any dis-
tance from campus. The mer-
chants, gathered in their rather
tight associations, can therefore
charge overly high prices for the
merchandise they carry (which is
frequently of the most expensive
kind) without , fearing outside
competition. The University in ef-
fect sanctions these practices by
not providing alternative centers
of supply. The resultant high cost
of living not only exacts an undue
amount of pressure on students
from middle class famliies who are
attending the University, but also
helps prevent capable students
from lower income families from
coming here. At a state school
supported by a regressive tax-the
sales tax-there is no reason why
all qualified students shouldn't be
able to attend, not just the
wealthy ones. In order to better
the economic situation of present
and potential students at the
University, GROUP members have
been and will continue working in
the following areas:-
1. Bookstore-the SGC Book-
store Co-chairmen, all GROUP
members - Mickey Eisenberg,
Steve Daniels, Don Resnick, Paula
Cameron, and Steve Schwartz-
devised the SGC campaign, and
the present candidates all contrib-
uted to its implementation and
execution.
2. On a much larger scale, and
in an economically more import-
ant area, GROUP is working to
provide students with better hous-
ing at a lower cost. SGC's Off-
Campus Housing Advisory Board
is led by Russ Linden, a GROUP
member. This committee, working
as a part of the Joint Housing
Committee, has been instrumental
in doing the studies which have
shown the tremendously high rate
of return-from 20% to 35%-
enjoyed by apartment owners in
Ann Arbor, and in pointing out
SGU will continue to work for
viahbl alternatives. GROUP on
low-cost housing.
3. Other projects which GROUP
will work for are:
a. Lower tuition charges,
looking forward to day when the
State will realize that education
is probably the single most im-
portant thing it can spend its
money on, and that therefore
there is nothing sacred with the
number 12 as far as year of free
education go.
b. Establishment of pickup
points for laundry trucks that go
into Detroit, affording a savings

REACH PLATFORM
R E A C H is an organization
which intends to bridge the broad
gap between student government
and the student body. We believe
that Student Government Council
can be a more effective and bene-
ficial organization given the prop-
er support and participation. We
in REACH hope to transform
SGC into a body that honest rep-
resents the needs and interests of
the students.
We intend to do this in two
ways: first, by providing students
with the opportunity to take part
in the decision-making process on
this campus; and second, by af-
fording them the opportunity to
activate their talents in their par-
ticipation and support by setting
fl u nA. i n 7+g.Vm m with 0verov

didates will make the most effec-
tive SGC members because.
AS MEMBERS OF REACH:
1.) They have access to one of
the most complete and compre-
hensive information files on cam-
pus.
2.) They have access to what
will be the most complete and di-
versified survey of student opinion
ever compiled by a student organ-
ization, through the use of the
REACH liaison system.
3.) They will be able to make
intelligent and perceptive propos-
als in regard to student problems
through the use of REACH's ex-
tensive research program.
AS INDIVIDUALS:
1.) AL GOODWIN, '66, a con-
centrate in pre-legal studies,
has had experience with the
workings of SGC and its
committee structure. He is
presently Public Relations
Chairman. He has done ex-
tensive research on housing
and urban renewal for Sen-
ator Robert F. Kennedy of
New York.
2.) BOB SMITH, '67, a political
science and journalism ma-
jor, is also familiar with the
inner workings of SGC as
a member of the Public Re-
lations Committee. Bob has
shown his interest in student
activities before by manag-
ing the organization of Skit
Night for Winter Weekend
'65, and of the parade for
Michigras, '64. Bob has also
Night for Winter Weekend,
worked on Homecoming, '65
and on the Union staff.
3.) NEILL HOLLENSHEAD, '67,
a political science major, has
served on the SGC Public
Relations Board, the IFC
Special Events Committee,
and is currently SGC Per-
sonnel Director. Neill is al-
so Special Assistant to the
Administrative Vice - Presi-
dent of SGC and was a dele-
gate to the 18th National
Student Congress.
4.) PAT McCARTY, '67, a psy-
chology major, is active on
the Personnel Committee of
SGC, the LSA Steering
Committee, and Panhellenic
Association. She is a mem-
ber of Alpha Lambda Delta
women's freshman honorary
and Wyvern junior women's
honorary societies. Pat is
also general co-chairman for
Winter Weekend, '66.
ISSUES
This statement will not attempt
to expound the REACH candi-
dates' positions on all issues, but
rather will deal with what we con-
sider to be some of the most perti-
nent areas of student concern. I

SMITH

Campus, in the light of the
increasing trend toward off-
campus housing and the in-
accessibility of the North
Campus area. We would like
to see improvements made In
the existing dormitory sys-
tem.
B. Off-campus Housing
We want to improve the Uni-
versity's Off-campus Hous-
ing Board, first, by increas-
ing its personnel, which now
consists of only four people,
(two of whom are secretar-
ies), to represent 11,000 stu-
dents more adequately. Sec-
ond, we propose the estab-
lishment of a student-realtor
mediating board to assist in
the resolution of student-
realtor problems.
We support the proposed vol-
untary eight month lease in-
stead of the present full-
year lease and an optional
i n d i v i d u a l responsibility
clause instead of the "Joint
and several" clause. We are
considering concrete solu-
tions to the problems of
those students currently
bound by a 12-month lease.
We question whether it
should be the student's re-
sponsibility to summer sub-
let, which is now left up to
the realtors' discretion. We
also question whether it
should be the responsibility
of the remaining students to
pay for the rent of an indi-
vidual who has left the uni-
versity.. We are also9 investi-
gating the use of damage de-
posits. We believe that stu-
dents have a right to an
itemized account of the use
of their damage deposits
when they are not refunded,
and to a clarification of
what constitutes "normal
wear and tear."
II. PRICES
A. Prices in general
We already have the legal
personnel of REACH investi-
gating price ranges with re-
spect to clothing, cleaning,
food, drug items, and books.
We are in the midst of com-
piling a list of the places
now available in Ann Arbor
that offer quality goods at
the lowest prices. We are al-
so negotiating with discount
chain stores such as Hud-
son's, Martinizing Cleaners,
K-Mart, and Discount Drugs,
to look into the possibility of
their entering the campus
area.
B. We support the University
Bookstore, but in view of the
problems encountered b y
S G C regarding available
money and space, we are
considering the possibility of
other immediate solutions
such as the present student
book exchange and/or a na-
tional discount book store.
III. EDUCATION
We would like to see the Edu-
cational Affairs Committee of
SGC continue and expand their
fine initial efforts to establish a
student-faculty rapport.
A. Course Reforms
1. Availability of more in-
terdepartmental courses
in related fields.
2. The introduction of inter-
college courses, e.g., credit
courses in Bus. Ad. avail-
able to LS & A students.
3. A leadership seminar, in-
tended to provide for a
continuity and integra-
tion of leadership in cam-
pus organizations, to be
included in the present
"open-number" c o u r s e
program.
4. More freedom to drop-
add, but we want to re-
tain the required coun-
selor's signature on regis-
tration materials in order
to maintain personal con-
tact with the students.
B. Counseling

1. We propose an expand-
ed train program for fac-
ulty counselors, in order
to insure better academic
guidance for the student
body.
2. We want to encourage
the LS & A Steering
Committee in providing
qualified people for the
Student-Counseling Sem-
inars held during the pre-
classification period.
We, the REACH candidates,
urge you to reach for a more dy-
namic, more effective, and more
meaningful SGC. Help us reach
you - call our Gripe Line, 663-
4247, for reasonable answers, bas-
ed on researched facts, to your
questions, complaints, and
thoughts regarding your Student
Government Council.
