All showings will be free.
SGC tonight will hear a motion proposed by Robert Bodkin,
'67E, and Jack' Wynder, '66, for SGC to sponsor an opinion
survey on Viet Nam. Total cost is estimated at $45 dollars for
300 questionnaires to be sent to a random sampling of students.
The survey would be done with the consultation of the University
Survey Research Center.
Sue Ness, '67, a member of SGC whose position will expire
at the time of the spring elections, is resigning now for "personal
reasons." Her spot will be filled by anyone wishing to submit a
petition to the SGC executive committee. Petitions will be re-
viewed by SGC a week from tonight, and the position most
probably filled then, said Gary Cunningham, '66, SGC president.

A committee which will conduct a comprehensive review
of student and faculty opinion on the trimester system is being
established, Associate Dean James Robertson and Dean William
Haber of the Literary college said yesterday. The proposal for
the committee came from a motion at a recent faculty meeting.
Robertson said that the members for the committee will be
selected shortly and will hopefully have the report ready by
A controversial 1964 Republican campaign film, "Choice,"
produced by the Mothers for A Moral America, will be given
what is believed to be its first public showing on campus
Monday, Jan. 31.
The film had been scheduled for national television in 1964
in support of former Sen. Barry M. Goldwater, but was cancelled
at the last minute at the insistence of the Republican presidential
It includes scenes of girls in topless bathing suits, beer cans
being thrown out of a speeding Lincoln Continental, former
Senate Secretary Bobby Baker and other alleged examples of
moral decay. The Mothers For A Moral America, a pro-Goldwater
organization, alleged that these were examples of the "moral
decay" fostered by the Democratic administration.
The film, which is being brought here by the campus Young
Democrats will have 7, 8 and 9 p.m. showings in Aud. A on the 31.
Admission to the movie will be 50c.
After the third set of Panhellenic rush parties, chairman
Linda Koehler, '66Ed, reported that 442 girls will be coming
back tonight and tomorrow night for "final desserts." This
represents a decrease of 150 girls since second set. "A good
percentage" of these girls, Miss Koehler observed, dro'pped of
their own volition. She estimated that about 400 of the original
1127 girls will pledge.
Professor Samuel Eldersveld of the political science depart-
ment said yesterday that the plan for the coming fall term
includes offering more political science courses especially on
the 400 level. Because of absenses among faculty this term it has
been difficult to offer enough courses. By the winter term 1967
the program will definitely be enlarged.
Preclassification for the current winter term was basically
smooth running according to John Manning, assistant to the
associate dean of the literary college. A majority of students used
the preclassification system with only 633 of the eligible juniors
and seniors, and 150 of those eligible freshmen and sophomores
not preclassifying. Manning attributed the increased efficiency
of the program to more experience among those responsible for
its administration.
A reliable Lansing source said last night that the governor
will not recommend more than a $5-6 million increase in the
University's 1966-'67 general funds budget appropriation. This
compares to a $14.6 million hike asked by the Regents in their
budget request. The source called the $5-6 million estimate
speculative; he said it is based on an expected 11 per cent hike
in funds for higher education and on the probability that much
of this increase will be channeled toward community colleges
and the seven smaller state-supported schools.
The source also was pessimistic about the University's chances
to receive a sizeable capital outlay appropriation unless it con-
forms to new procedures for distribution of planning money

Says 'Odds
Strong' for
'Test Plans
Consideration May
Be Given to Class
Rank in Deferments
WASHINGTON (A') - Selective
Service Director Lt. Gen. Lewis B.
Hershey said last night the "odds
are strong" that there will be a
return to a system of testing and
consideration of class standing by
local draft boards in granting col-
lege student deferments.
Hershey told a news conference
he expects to make up his mind
within the next 10 days, or soon-
er, about reverting to a system
such as that used during the
Korean War.
"The odds are strong we are
going to revert to such a system,
not necessarily to the exact details
of the previous system, but to such
a system," Hershey said.
The results would be used as
guides by local draft boards in
deciding on student deferments,
but Hershey emphasized that un-

tomorrow at 2 p.m.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard L. Cutler is expected
to report at the Regents meeting
that the establishment of a Uni-
versity - operated discount book-
store would not be economically
feasible. He is also expected to
recommend that the Regents 1929
ruling prohibiting competition be-
tween the University and private
enterprise be rescinded.
UMSEU member Donald Res-

the Student Government Council
bookstore committee of his deci-
sion to disapprove the bookstore
proposal until two days before the
Regents' meeting;
-The total lack of communica-

Resnick complained that stu-
dents aren't allowed in discussions
at open meetings of the Regents
while the Regents who can only
act as a body have refused to meet
with students individually.
However, several Regents have
set up a program that enables two
students to meet one day a month
with them over breakfast, at
which time the Regents can talk
of their "extensive travels," Res-
nick said.t

Of Student Group
In a public statement issued
yesterday, the Student Govern-

tee criticized Vice-President for
Student Affairs Richard L. Cut-
ler's "secrecy" on his bookstore
The committee charged Cutler
with failing to inform it that he
will recommend to the Regents
that a University-operated dis-
count bookstore would be eco-
nomically unfeasible and should
not be established.
Bookstore committee members
first learned of Cutler's plans via
a news leak in The Daily, though
they contend that Cutler had
promised to let them know of any
Mas R. Copi decisions as soon as he had made
Tl them.
The committee stated that it
was not so much Cutler's decision
that was displeasing, though it
still maintains a discount book-

investigation of the proposal with
the committee.

ternity negotiated with realtors
yesterday and Monday to obtain
housing for next fall. The final
settlement should be closed with-
in a month, David Brown, '68,
president of TEP, said last night.
The house is located at 1601
Cambridge. It is now a family

dwelling but the fraternity will
invest about $30,000 this summer
to convert it for group living.
The house will accommodate 25-
28 men next fall, Brown said.
