Conference,
Sets Goals
For City
Urge Acceptance
Of U' Students as
Local Citizens
By NEAL BRUSS
Goals for effective urban de-
velopment in the Ann Arbor mu-
nicipal area were evaluated yes-
terday by the Citizens Association
for Area Planning (CAAP) at a-
conference at the Michigan Un-
ion.
Symposiums dealing with the re-
lation of Ann Arbor to the sur-
rounding area, education and
community growth, and the
changing character of Ann Arbor
were held to provide opportunity
for discussion between University
and community authorities and ci-
tizens. As presented at a final
session last night, goals determ-
ined included:
-Moving toward acceptance of
University students as integrated
citizens within the community.
-Encouraging communication
between Ann Arbor officials and
those of other Washtenaw Coun-
ty townships and cities.
--Stimulating real .estate devel-
opments that retain the tradi-
tional character of the communi-
ty.
-Working for "quality educa-
tion" at all levels in Ann Arbor.
-Establishing a community na-
ture center and historical museum.
-Approving "reasonably priced,
architecturally acceptable 'hous'-
ing" for all residents.
-Creating a metropolitan mas-
ter plan to regulate all phases of
growth.
-Conserving and developing
the Huron River Valley.
-Improving transportation fa-
cilities .
-Providing "dignified work and
residential opportunities" for in-
dividuals with junior college edu-
cations.
The all-day sessions included
specialized workshops and were
highlighted by addresses on sig-
nificant phases of the conference
effort.,
Grady Clay, real estate editor
of the Louisville Courier-Journal
and founder of the Louisville Citi-
zens Metropolitan Planning Coun-
cil, gave the keynote address. He
4 stressed the importance of civic
involvement in planning and the
need for encouragement of pri-
vate real estate developments.
A meeting of CAAP was slated
for early February, at which time
the work of the conference would
be continued by the delegates and
additional members from other
groups in the conmunity.

Zeta Tau Alpha, one of the smaller sororities on campus, will
conduct an expansion program next week to gain new members.
It hopes to increase its membership from about 20 girls to about
65, to justify the opening of an annex to its present house which
has a capacity of 40. The expansion program is a result of a need
for members which was not filled during rush, and will be
conducted through personal contact by members of the other
sororities and fraternities. The ZTA program is being sponsored
by Panhellenic and Inter-Fraternity Council.
Of the 1127 girls who registered for this spring's sorority
rush, 393 have pledged.
MUSKET'S additional performance on Friday, Feb. 11, will
be held at 7 p.m. instead of at 8:30 p.m. as reported yesterday.
The second performance that night will be held at 10 p.m.

Lawyer To Argue
Right To Practice
Civil Disobedience
By ROGER RAPOPORT
Arguments in the appeal trial
of 39 University protestors con-
victed of trespassing Oct. 22 in a
sit-in protest against U.S. policy
in Viet Nam will be heard today
in Washtenaw County Circuit
Court.
Defense attorney Ernest Good-
man of Detroit will argue that the
students are innocent because in-
dividuals have the right to use
civil disobedience to protest gov-
ernment policies they believe to
be immoral. i
It took, nearly five hours of
deliberation yesterday in the court
of Judge James R. Breakey Jr. to
select a jury of nine women and
five men. Two extra jurors were
selected to provide alternates in
case of illness or emergency.
All Hear
The case will be heard by all 14
Jurors. When the trial is com-
pleted the jurors will draw lots to
determine which two will be
dropped.
The jury was selected from a list
of 85 prospective names after close
questioning, by both the defense
and the county prosecutor.
The prospective jurors were ask-
ed, for example, if they have any
relatives in the armed forces fight-
ing in Viet Nam; if they had any
opinions on the moral aspect of
the war, or on student protestors.
Refuse Plea Change
One student, Ronald Miller, '68,
who originally pleaded guilty and
who is one of the 13 University
students reclassified 1-A because
of the sit-in, was denied his re-
quest to consolidate his, case with
the 29 now pleading not guilty.
Miller changed his plea from
guilty to not-guilty Monday in
Circuit Court but Judge Breakey
refused to allow his case to be
heard with the others being de-
fended by Goodman. No trial date
has been set for Miller's case.
Goodman's defense has attract-
ed wide attention in legal circles
because it invokes precedent es-
tablished in the 1946 Nuremburg
War Crime Trials.
Goodman concedes in his brief
that the students did commit "a
minor crime of trespassing."
Moral Obligation
However, he contends that the
individual's obligation to protest
government policies he finds im-
moral gives him the right to par-
ticipate in a non-violent protest
demonstration.
Six other protestors who have
pled guilty to charges of trespass-
ing have been set for sentencing
on Friday. However the court in-
dicated yesterday that the sen-

College, swelled beyond the capa-
city of its 37-year-old building to
accommodate all its students, is
now at the point of being forced
to seek relocation elsewhere or to
cut back on the depth of education
offered.
The A&D art and architecture
departments are the only ones in
Michigan accredited by the Na-

tional Association of Schools cf
Art and the American Institute of
Architects. Increasing demands
for admission to the school have
so overcrowded the A&D building
that the college's administration
has been forced to set an arbitrary
ceiling on the numbers of stu-
dents annually admitted, accord-
ing to Dean Robert Iglehart of the
art department.
The building, built in 1928-29,

originally was planned for 275
architecture students. At present
over eight hundred art, architec-
ture, and graduate students pur-
sue their studies in the building.
As a consequence, the A&D school
is unable to supply adequate locker
space and small studio courses, or
set up joint programs of study
with the art department of the
literary college. Potential efforts
such as cinecatographic research
and joint art department-Music
School operas have gone unreal-
ized because of lack of space,
according to Iglehart.
Class Growth
Concerned that class size may
grow too bulky for sufficient
teacher- student instruction, a fac-
ulty committee is studying the
feasibility of relocating the A&D
in a larger building to be built on
land already set aside for that
purpose on North Campus. If the
University approves a building, the
new A&D will rise on a plot above
and behind the wind tunnel.
Although no architect has been
hired and specific monies have not
been approved for the construction
of the new building as of now,
Dean Iglehart foresees the estab-
lishment of the A&D in its new
location by 1970.
Until such a time when plans

the number of pre-professional art
students enrolled in the A&D
leaves no room for transferv
literary college students interestedt
in majoring in art without pro-.
fessional careers in mind.<
Commenting on the fact thatf
many 'Eastern colleges, such as
Dartmouth and Smith have such
programs, Iglehart said, "We think
it wouldbe a good thing for the
campus as a whole. It would dis-
tinguish between the professional
and the elective students. At pres-
ent we have no chance to take
students who elect into the art
department until all our profes-
sional students have registered;
by then there are usually no open-
ings left."
Iglehart feels that such a pro-
gram could increase the art de-
partment's enrollment from its
present 415 up to 1000.
Such an integrated program was
tried about ten years ago with
the history of art department of
the literary college giving lectures
and the A&D giving complemen-
tary studio courses. Within two
years the enrollment had jumped
from 30 to 300 and overcrowding,
that old nemesis, forced the
course to be dropped. This was a
rare case of a course being too

with an enrollment of 300.
The school, which lacks an ad-
ministration could, "use a little
more organization," according to
spokesmen (poet) Jerry Badanes.
But, he added the school was,
"overwhelmed by the ethusiasm,"

Instructors and students mak-,
ing joint decisions on when and
where courses will be held. A 1
course in education got underway
last night. Most other courses are
scheduled on a weekly basis for
either Wednesday or Thursday
evenings.
A heavy demand for art courses
has resulted in an expanded cur-
riculum of that department. The
courses are "Why Study Art,"
"Why Be an Artist," "What is
Art Criticism and Art History,"

As in most universities the fac-
ulty members are underpaid.
(They teach for free.) This is ex-
pected to keep tuition costs at a
minimum.
The curriculum for the classes
was formed largely by students.
University spokesmen anticipate
this practice will continue in the
event that courses are added.
