A new University of Michigan
golf course will open in the spring
of 1966 to serve the University
faculty. The course is being con-
structed in an effort to solve
problems of over crowding at the
University varsity golf course, ac-
cording to spokesmen.
The new course, bounded by
Geddes, Gale and Dixboro Roads,
has been in the planning and
development stages since 1957,
when Regent Frederick C. Mat-
thaei began to deed property to
the University for this and other
In 1957 the land now occupied
by the University's botanical gar-
dens, amounting to about 220
acres, was deeded to the Univer-

As soon as the deeding pro-
cedures are completed in 1966, the
University will have received a
total of 871 acres from Regent
Matthaei. He has reserved seven
acres upon which his home sits.
He has a lifetime lease on this
property, which he intends also
to eventually go to the University.

IFC Probes
Sigma Chi
Racial Bias
Committee To Issue
Study on Fraternity
Racial Discrimination
John Feldkamp, assistant to the
vice-president for student affairs,
reports that the Interfraternity
Council membership committee is
"very close" to issuing its report
to the IFC executive committee
on a study of the alleged racial
discrimination in Sigma Chi fra-
ternity's membership policies.
Sigma Chi has been given na-
tonwide attention since the na-
tional fraternity suspended its
Stanford chapter almost simul-
taneously with that chapter's
pledging of a Negro. Jon Maich,
'66, president of Sigma Chli, said
the national's rationale for the
suspension was that the Stanford
chapter was not adhering to the
ideals and rituals of Sigma Chi
and, therefore, it' appeared that
the chapter no longer had any in-
terest in remaining a part of the
national organization. He empha-
sized that the chapter was only
suspended and has not been ex-
pelled from the Sigma Chi na-
Fraternity 'In Trouble'
March admitted that the "na-
tional fraternity is in trouble
across the country." He attributed
the difficulty to statements made
by Harry Wade, a former presi-
dent of the national. "His state-
ments were more his own opinion
than those of the fraternity, how-
ever," March said.
March said that the closeness
of the suspension and the pledg-
ing of the Negro brought the fra-
ternity under fire because of pos-
sible connections between the two!
As part of a panel on "The Na-
ture of Fraternity" sponsored by
the Northwestern University IFC
last Thursday night, Fred Yoder,i
assistant executive secretary of
the Sigma .Chi national, said,
"Theoretically, a fraternity as a
private organization has the right
to discriminate on the basis of
race, religion, color or creed." He
added, however, that "the frater-
nity also exists within a univer-1

Feldkamp admitted that Negroes

Long Distance
Two students distributing copies of "Logos," a newsletter of
the Committee for Students' Rights, at residence halls at Mich-
igan State Univeristy yesterday were ordered to stop their dis-
tribution by residence hall advisors.
Both students refused and were threatened by the advisors
with retaliation from the administration.
George Fish, CSR coordinator for Fee Hall, insisted that
distributing the literature was within his rights and that the
university had no regulations prohibiting the distribution. An
advisor threatened him with suspension.
When another student, Mike Price, refused to stop distri-
bution at another residence hall, authorities called the East Lans-
ing police, who refused to arrest Price. He was then informed that
the authorities would "see him before the dean."

Freedom of Speech

University President H a r l a n

right of student protestors to bas-

how their actions might affect the

fund drive, in a speech delivered
before business leaders in Chi-.

tion of the law. When such viola- on Paul Schiff's plea for readmis-
tions occur, it is the responsibil- sion to the university. The com-

ity of the law enforcement agen-
cies to take appropriate action."
President Hatcher said that a
distinction must be drawn be-
tween illegal actions and distaste-
ful actions, and that to prohibit
expression of opinions merely dis-
tasteful "would be a violation of
the constitutional freedoms so1
precious to all of us.'
This was an unprecedented
move for the President, who tra-
ditionally has avoided public state-
ments on student activism.
Last fall, after members of the
Student Employes' Union marched
on his home, he urged student
leaders to use "established chan-
nels of communication," such as
Student Government Council,
rather than resort to protests.
President Hatcher, along with
other adninistrators, called last
spring's faculty plan for a "work
moratorium" to express disagree-
ment with the government's poli-
cy in Viet Nam "inappropriate
and irrelevant."
At a Student Convocation last
March he againavoided asserting
the rights of protestors, though
he did express his "respect" for
those concerned with solving
problems in Viet Nam and Selma,
Ala. And, he once more caution-
ed that discontent be registered
by orderly, established methods.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler said that in
yesterday's s p e e c h President
Hatcher expressed what has been
the policy of the Office of Student
Affairs "for a long time" in guar-
anteeing students' civil liberties.
Don Resnick, '68, SGC member
and president of the StudentEm-
ployes' Union, said that he was
glad to see that the President did
affirm students' rights but that
he felt the idea is so basic that it
shouldn't have had to be affirmed.
Resnick admitted that he didn't

findings of its hearings in a few
'days and to issue a decision at
that time concerning the validity
of Schiff's charges.
The committee met on Novem-
ber 9 to hear testimony from wit-
nesses supporting the administra-
tion's case. Last night students
and faculty appeared before the
committee to support Schiff's
ACLU Representative Testifies
Also presenting testimony in be-
half of Schiff was Hugh Ander-
son ,vice-chairman of the East
Lansing branch of the American
Civil Liberties Union. Anderson
told The Daily that the Civil
Liberties Union is "equally inter-
ested in the procedural aspects
of this case, the university's fail-
ure to give Schiff a hearing, and
the basis on which the university
is attempting to expell Schiff.
"All of the original reasons for
expelling him," Anderson went on,
"are related to the exercise of his
F i r s t Amendment freedoms;
speech, association and press."
MSU maintains that Schiff
violated the university's distribu-
tion policy by distributing copies
of an unapproved political per-
iodical door-to-door in dormitories
last year.
Distribution Rule
Anderson contends in answer to
this charge that, "the University
has never denied that three weeks
after the distribution, in the May
11 issue of the State News, it was
reported that President John Han-
nah had approved that rule (no
door - to - door distribution) on
May 10.
"The rule at the time of the
distribution was, as stated by
Hannah in a letter to the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union in Feb-
ruary, that there was no ban or
bar on distribution of literature in
dormitories or elsewhere."

Run for Six
Four Independents
In Council Campaign
Student approval of the political
philosophies and platforms of
Group and Reach political parties
will be tested today in annual
Student Government Council elec-
tions. Voters will choose from four
candidates from each of the par-
ties and four independents to fill
six SGC vacancies.
The election will be marked by
use of computers for ballot count-
ing, and by the subsequent adop-
tion of an IBM grid ballot.
William Meeske, '69, SGC elec-
tions director, said that "anyone
with an ID card can vote." Stu-
dents will be able to ballot at vot-
ing stations at West Quadrangle,
East Quadrangle, South Quad-
rangle, Mary Markley Hall, the
Diag, the Fishbowl, the Engineer-
ing Arch, the UGLI, the north-
west corner of Angell Hall, the
School of Architecture and De-
sign, the Physics and Astronomy
Bldg., Palmer Field, the front en-
trance of the Union, the Frieze
Bldg., and the Law Quaddrangle.
All stations except that at the
Law School will be open from 8:30
a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
Candidates for the six SGC seats
are GROUP party members Darryl
Alexander, '69; Ruth Baumann,
'68; Don Resnick, '68; and Ed
Robinson, '67; REACH party mem-
bers Al Goodwin, '66; Neill Hol-
lenshead, '67; Pat McCarty, '67;
and Bob Smith, '67; and independ-
ents Robert Bodkin, '67; Joan Ir-
win, '66; Eduard Mauer, '67; and
Jim Wall, '67.
Voters will select candidates by
blackening ovals on the ballot
grid corresponding to candidates
of their choice. In addition, the
ballot has been designed with in-
formation columns in which voters
can indicate their sex, class, te
of balloting, participation in pre-
vious election, and residence. The
ballots will be completed with
special IBM pencils provided at
each of the 16 polling places.
Members of the SGC Credentials
and Rules Committee will hear
any complaints of illegal proced-
ure after the polls close and pass
judgments, should any arise. The
ballots will then be processed
through Universityrcomputers for
counting on time rented by SGC.
Committee members will examine
ballots picked out by the comput-
ers because of variance or mis-
takes and consider their validity.
A special grid on the ballot,
marked with a 00 number has
been planned for signification of
write-in candidates. The 00 ovals

United States commitment in Viet
Bergmann said that the U.S.
stand in Viet Nam supports the
wrong side on the conflict. He
traced the rise of two groups in
Viet Nam, after it became a free
country. He said that the U.S.
supports the "collaborators," the
people who worked with the col-
onizers, the French, when Viet
Nam was a colony. In his opinion,
Bergmann said that the U.S.
should instead have aided the
"resistors," those people who op-.
posed the colonial rule and whom
he feels are more in sympathy
with the native elements.
"Blackmail" of U.S.
A minority government in popu-
larity, such as we are now aiding,
he said, must progress to a point
by which it must "blackmail" the
aiding country to get more sup-
port, to continue its existence. He
said that a minority government
must become repressive and cor-
rupt to stay in power.

tors, he said, would want radical
changes to remove the remaints
of colonialism from their coun-
try, and this could be economically
disadvantageous for the aiding
Also, the resistors would be wary
of offers of help from a major
power, just after leaving the rule
of another one, he added. But, in
his opinion, the aiding country
must win over the resistors; to
have any chance of forming a
stable government, they must sup-
port them and back them.
Thus, Bergmann feels that "we
backed the wrong side in Viet Nam
ten years ago." He feels that the
U.S. should have supported the
anticolonial resistors, and used
their inherent dislike of the Chi-
nese to exclude that country from
advances in the region. To do this
would have avoided the present
war, he said.
Bergmann said that American
foreign policy is trying at present
to keep Viet Nam divided, and to
install a Saigon government which
"may have some power." This,
he commented, will recreate the
situation of ten years ago" and the
whole thing might start over. In
Bergmann's opinion, free elections
