IRWIN,
JUAN IRWIN, '66
Joint Judiciary Council
Gamma Phi Beta Secretary'
Having been on Joint Judiciary
Council for the past year I have
worked with students, organiza-
tions, and the administration. I
have seen incongruities and in-
equities in the student adminis-
tration relationship in dealing
with University problems. By
working on SGC I feel I could
solve the following problems that
concern you.
1. Will North Campus be a new
Siberia?
Here is a good example of ad-
N ministration planning without
student participation - inade-
quate food facilities, no planning
for student organizations, bad
transportation, little attempt to
integrate students with the rest
of the University.
2. Why is the University unre-
sponsive to student demands of
academic reform?
Students have been unable to
influence academic policies - no
one is re-evaluating trimester,
credit hours are inconsistent with
the amount of work required, stu-
dents can't personally plead their
case before the Administrative
Board, there's no University back-
ing on teacher and course evalu-
ation.

3. Is the Office of Student Affairs
denying students' and organiz-
ations' rights?
The O.S.A. is an ambiguous or-
ganization which students find
difficult to work with - there is
no clear statement of students'
and organizations' right and re-
sponsibilities, students don't know
what they are charged with when
appearing before Joint Judiciary
Council, the only link students
have with the administration and
the Regents is the Vice President
for Student Affairs, but students
have no control over him.
4. Why had the University indef-
initely delayed the Residential
College?
5. Where are the promised stu-
dent parking facilities?
The overriding question is
Can students reach the Univer-
sity? SGC should function as the
link to the administration for stu-
dents. My qualifications and
ideas, which will be expanded in
position papers, enables me to
further this function.

ROBERT BODKIN, '67
Incumbent, SGC Housing Board
OSA Engineering Honor Coun-
cil
Triangles
SGC has worked actively over
this past year in several areas.
The focus of this Council mem-
ber's efforts have been in hous-
ing--
1. Submitting a 20 page econ-j
omic study to SGC, the Univer-
sity, and the city logically sup-
porting definite goals for improv-
ed student housing-student par-
ticipation in planning of Univer-
sity housing, an 8 month lease,
and revision of city zoning and
building codes to insure quality
high rise development.
2. Working actively toward ob-
taining all of these goals through
SGC's Housing Board, and work-
ing with the new Joint Housing
Comm.
3. Actively sharing in the de-
cision making of future housing
here at the University through;
the Student Advisory Committee
on Housing to V.P. Cutler.
SGC must be a responsible or-
ganization. Ration and logical
approaches to problems of student!
welfare must be pursuied. Before
it can persuade the Regents or
the administration, SGC must
have people who can thoroughlyE

lem as well as an ideal solution.
Above all, SGC must realize that
for lack of any other real power
in the University structure, tools
of persuasion must be effectively
employed. Personal contact with
the Regents as well as campus
petitioning are such tools.
SGC must be a representative
organization. Campus issues, not
complex international problems,
should be the primary concern of
SGC. Clearcut problems, e.g.,
racial discrimination, should draw
written disapproval from SGC.
As for future goals and objec-
tives, SGC must continue increas-
ing its role in the decision mak-
ing process of the University in
other areas as well as in housing.
One such area would be academic
reform. An SGC sponsored con-
ference of all steering committees
and college councils could result
in: effective course evaluation,
course revision by students, aca-
demic credit for activities, and
ways of reducing trimester pres-
sure.
SGC can win the respect and
support of the student body only
when tackling problems about
which students are genuinely con-
cerned.

JIM WALL, '67
SGC International Coordinator
School of Education Council
Young Democrats
The Student Government Coun-
cil, designated by the Regents as
the official spokesman of the
University's student body, must
work unceasingly to discover the'
needs and desires of those it rep-
resents, and to then formulate
feasibly policies to fulfill these
needs and desires. The, present
members have effectively striven
in many areas to meet SGC's re-
sponsibility. The following are
specific planks in my platform
mentioning both present SGC
policies which need continued
backing and ideas which through
discussion by SGC may lead to
future policies.
1. The SGC Bookstore Commit-
tee has the clear backing of a
substantial part of the student
body and must be backed to full-
est extent in its efforts to estab-
lish a University Bookstore. How-
ever, the Student Book Exchange
must not be allowed to flounder
from a lack of financial support
because it still represents the best
working solution to the problem.
2. Student driving and parking
remains a persistant problem. The
University "E" Sticker fees may
be put to use in this area. There

is approximately $120,000 in funds
collected from the "E" stickers.
One program to help the student
parking situation, would be to
rent one floor on each of the
existing parking structures.
3. Continued support must be
given to the SGC motion of Oct.
7, which asked the Vice President
for Student Affairs to initiate an
examination of the University's
International Program.
4. SGC could join with other
campus organizations in sponsor-
ing a course description booklet
which would contain information
similiar to that included in the
special supplement of the Mar. 28
issue of 'The Michigan Daily.'
5. Support should be given to
U-M Student Employee's Union
in regard to its higher wages
campaign for student employees
of the University.
SGC should remain alert to the
fact that President Hatcher, after
distinguished service to the Uni-
versity, will be retiring in the not
too distant future and a commit-
tee to consider applicants for the
University's most important posi-
tion will thus have to be set up.
The student body must be repre-
sented on this committee.
7. A closer relationship between
the Student Community, the Reg-
ents, the Faculty, and the Admin-
istration. One possible tool that
can be used, would be the services
of WCBN, the University Radio
Station.

GENERAL: Student Govern-,
ment Council has definitely a
functional position within the
dynamic University picture. Its
position is essential.
If at the present time there
were no student government, I
think it would be "High Noon" to
create this organization. SGC is
necessary to bridge effectively the
"two banks of the Amazon river."
The two banks are the ad-
ministration and faculty on one
side, and the whole student body
- including both undergraduates
and graduates-on the other side.
SGC is in existence. I want to
make SGC dynamic and more ef-
fective. I would like to help SGC
represent the students (groups and
individuals) responsibly.

SPECIFICS: I am primarily in-
terested in developing two general
trends:
(1) Reducing Cost of Educa-
tion to Student;
(2) Finding Purpose for Stu-
dents.
(1) I will support SGC's current
major issues to the best of my
ability. These major issues, as you
all well know, is the Student
Bookstore a n d the Low-Cost
Housing, connected with eight-
month leases. I would like to see
these issues handled by SGC in a
responsible business-like manner.
The third issue under 'Cost' is
the prices of the essentials for
students. I would like to publish
a booklet that lists all the busi-
nesses in Ann Arbor that act in
good faith, in terms of service,
quality of products, and prices.
(2) The second trend is a dif-
ficult one to approach. I want to
start making it easier for students
to find their particular purpose
amidst the current massive knowl-
edge of. facts and therefore abun-
dant confusion, which in turn
lleads to lack of interest and lack
of dedication..
I will activate interest in stu-
dent organizations. I will start
new organizations and projects in
areas that are not represented and
where interest is demonstrated.
The Utopia Club is one organiza-
tion that I will start within the
next two months.
I also want to see that students
get credit--not credit hours-for
participating in recognized non-
class work, i.e. student organiza-
tions.
As a concluding remark I like
to say that SGC should be actively
participating in all major Uni-
versity policy-making and de-
velopment areas,: such as North
Campus and tuition raises!
