Citing another factor in the

Previously, candidates could only

According to Lansing sources, an agreement has been reached
between Rep. Charles Petitpren (D-Inkster), chairman of the
House Committee on Higher Education, and Rep. Jack Faxon
(D-Detroit), chairman of the subcommittee on higher education
of the House ways and means committee, defining the jurisdiction
of each. of the committees. In the future, it appears, Faxon will
stick purely to fiscal problems and Petitpren will concentrate
mainly on higher education policy. There had been charges made
that Faxon's recent University invesigation was a duplication 1
of a similar injuiry held by Petitpren last summer.
The University's budget is presently in the process of staff
analysis, according to Charles Orlebeke, higher education advisor
to the governor. Orlebeke further commented that all appropria-
tions requests from state institutions have been submitted to the
governor's office and that the state controller will soon beF

budget hearings. He indicated that the governor's budget esti-
mates would not be prepared before the first week in December.

Regent Allan Sorenson will fly back from business engage-
ments in Spain to attend Friday afternoon's Regents meeting,
according to Eric Walter, University secretary. All of the eight
Regents, with the exception of Regent Eugene Power who is in
Japan, will be present at the open meeting at 2 p.m. in the
Regents Room on the second floor of the Administration Bldg.
Walter said that the meeting could have taken place with
both Power and Sorenson absent, since five Regents constitutes a
quorum.
Joint Judiciary Council has extended petitioning for seats
on the council and on its Committee on Standards and Conduct

Robert J. Gelinas, a graduate student in nuclear engineering,
was presented the American Nuclear Society's Mark Mills Award
of $500 for the best student paper describing research in the
field of nuclear energy at the ANS luncheon yesterday. Gelinas'
research was entitled "Reactor Noise Analysis by Photons Ob-
servation," observing bits of electro-magnetic radiations rather
than by other nuclear radiation of particles. He carried out the
research as partial fulfillment of the requirements for a Ph.D.
degree, which he expects to receive in June.
Long Distance
The Committee for Student Rights of Michigan State Uni-
versity endorsed a local action group called SCUM yesterday.
SCUM, the Student Committee to Undermine Machines, plans
to boycott laundry machines in the dormitories. Laundry prices
there have been raised from 25 cents to 50 cents per load. Attempts
by the students to have authorities lower the price have failed.

Commission

Funds May Come
From Private, Public

By ROBERT CARNEY
Three of the five appointees to
the new housing commission aired
varying opinions on the purpose
of that commission last night in a
public meeting at the First Meth-
odist Church.
Joseph W. Edwards, Lyndon
Welch, and Robert Powell re-
sponded to six questions by the'
Federation for an Ann Arbor
Housing Commission and then an-
swered additional, more pointed
questions from the audience. Hen-
ry V. Aquinto and William J.
Conlin submitted written state-
ments to the federation's six
questions, but were not able to
appear publicly. MEMBERS-ELECT OF SGC, LAST NIGHT aft

er the elections. From left to right, Don Resnick, '67, Al Goodwin, '67, Ed Robinson,

Aquinto, for example, placed
considerable faith in the ability
of private sectors of the commu-
nity to be able to handle the prob-
lem, stating that the commission
should apply for federal funds
"if the private enterprise can't
take care of the problem."
Conlin and Edwards implied
that the concurrent private and
public solutions were possible.
They supported the federal survey
parallel to initial private action.
Welch also felt that "Ann Ar-
bor has the resources to handle
the problem," but emphasized that
he had no qualms about public
funding if needed.
Council will vote on the ap-
pointees Monday night.

REACH won a plurality of seats
in the SGC election yesterday,
placing three of their four can-
didates on Council. However, Rob-
ert Bodkin, an independent, led
the race in votes received and
GROUP saw half of its candidates
elected.
After a day of cold and windy
weather for the election, 4,268 stu-
dents elected (Independent) Rob-
ert Bodkin, '67 (2,224 votes);
(REACH) Neill Hollenshead, '67
(1,901 votes); (REACH) Al Good-
win, '67 (1,643 votes); (REACH)
Pat McCarty, '67 (1,561 votes);
(GROUP) Ed Robinson, '67 (1,539
votes); and (GROUP) Don Res-
nick, '67 (1,353 votes).
SGC President Gary Cunning-
ham, '66, said, "I am reasonably
pleased with the turnout. There
was evidence of a tremendous
amount of work done by parties in
this election and it seems that
parties will play a bigger role in
SGC in the future." Cunningham
added, however, that the com-
plexion of SGC parallels Councils
of the past.
Small Number
Contrasting with Cunningham's
view of the turnout, Bodkin and
Hollenshead said jointly that "The
relatively small number of ballots
cast in this election should not
reflect a lack of student interest
in SGC, but rather as a failure
in elections procedure."
The two cited two basic prob-
lems: the actual operation of the
polls themselves and the com-
plexity of the ballot.
Goodwin, acting as public re-
lations director for SGC, observed
that "in certain areas such as at
the Law Quad and at South Quad
there were marked discontinuites
in polling procedure resulting in
a definite inconvenience to would-
be voters."
Gratitude
All of the candidates expressed
gratitude to the voters and ex-
pressed their plans for the future
of SGC. Bodkin wants "to con-
tinue pushing ahead on the prob-
lems of housing, academic reform
and general student welfare."
GROUP member Resnick plans
to concentrate on the bookstore
issues and "the general area of
communications between students
and policy makers.
Fellow GROUP member Robin-
son felt that the, "people on cam-
pus were more aware in this
election of what SGC has accom-
plished and were aware of the
work of GROUP SGC members."
The REACH candidates were
very optimistic. Pat McCarty said
"the turnout in this election is an
indication that this can be a be-
ginning and a sound basis for
student support for SGC."
Neill Hollenshead commented.

The Interdisciplinary Program

summer school session by the

School of Education in conjunc-
tion with the political science and
speech departments of the literary
college.
The six-week program, open to
70 students including both under-
graduates and graduates, will com-
bine study tours with classroom
seminars in order to "enable stu-
dents to achieve an understanding
of British institutions through a

study of government, education
and speech communications," as
stated in the program's bulletin.
The homebase of the Study
Program will be located in the Im-
perial Hotel on Russell Square,
London. Accommodations for all
participants will be made at the
hotel, and all classroom work will
originate from there.

DEATH OF SEMINARY STUDENT:

SNCC Worker Tells of Alabama Rights Killing

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following

year-old SNCC field worker and
34 others had been arrested for
picketing a segregated groceryj
store in Ft. Deposit.

Irving Anderson, of the education
school; Prof. Lionel Laing, of the
political science dept. and Prof.
Herbert Hildebrandt, of the speech
depart., will simply transport their
classrooms to embrace the re-
sources available in London. They
feel that a new dimension will be
added to their courses through the
application of classroom theories
to- on-the-spot observations.
A student may select either one
course or any combination of two
courses or all three courses from
the respective fields. Credits will
be assigned to correspond with the
number of hours a student would
normally receive if he were taking
the course at the University.
Not a Boondogle
"This is not a boondogle by any
means, and the students must be
willing to work hard," explained
Prof. Hildebrandt. "Each course
will require 11 hours of participa-
tion a week.
Much of the time will be spent
in visitations to places such as the
British Parliament, Oxford, Cam-
bridge and British broadcasting
stations and theaters. Three even-
ings a week guest lecturers will
address the students," he con-
tinued.
This relatively new concept in
studying abroad was originally be-
gun by the education school last
summer. However this program
was limited to courses in educa-
tion, and only lasted for four
weeks.
The idea is now being expanded
to include students interested in
