There was no comment as to when the booklet would be published.
The Board - of Governors of the Residence Halls voted
unanimous approval yesterday for the constitution of the pro-

the two existing residence halls systems, was reveiwed at a
house presidents' meeting last Tuesday.
Mandates are being taken this week in the housing units
on the merger, and voting on final ratification is scheduled for
a presidents' meeting on Feb. 10. The constitution provides for
a presidents' council as the legislative body and an executive
board of committee chairmen.

State Senate's resolution that the University or Wayne State
University establish a branch of their law schools in Lansing may
be just another one of those "funny little things" the Legislature

if the resolution was passed in all seriousness or if it is similar
to those resolutions that all legislators be made members of the
bar which the Legislature has sometimes jokingly proposed in
the past.

All were fined $50 and were re-

rCalls for
Joint Panel
Students Must Work
Closely with Faculty
To Exert Influence
Student Government C o u n c i l
last night passed a motion calling
for a joint committee to help se-
lect the next president of the
The motion urged that "the stu-
dent body should have a voice in
selecting the next president of the
University. . . . We believe this
participation should be a selection
process from evaluation of the.
University's needs and interview-
ing of potential candidates to a
final recommendation of candi-
dates . ."
Earlier in the meeting, John C.
Feldkamp, assistant to the vice-
president for student affairs said,
'Students should certainly have
a role in the interviewing for the
next University president and in
developing a screening process
which would lead toward nomi-
The motion was passed with
only one objection.
To implement this, SGC moved
that at the next Regents meeting,
Feb. 11:
" A Presidential Selection Ad-
visory Committee be formed by
the Regents, as a body of 12-1
" Regents, faculty, alumni and
students be equally represented on
this committee.
* SGC submit a list of poten-
tial student members to the Re-
gents who, with the advice of Vice-
President Richard Cutler, will
make the final choice.
" The Presidential Selection
Advisory Committee submit final
recommendation of at least ten
candidates in preferential order to
the Regents.
Access to Information
Feldkamp, in his address to
SGC, stressed both his and Cut-
ler's opinions that students should
have access to information on Uni-
versity decisions. They should have
a voice in this information. "Stu-
dents are the greatest instrument
for change in this University," he
In a comment afterward, how-
ever, Feldkamp stressed the fact
that students alone were not suf-
ficient to exert much influence.
"They should work closely with
the faculty," he said, "in setting
this precedent in presidential
Distinct Authority
"I doubt however, that students
will be able to work as closely with
the Regents. Their authority must
be distinct from faculty and stu-
dent opinions."

Threats to Foreign Policy


The opposition to making our
foreign policy more realistic and
up-to-date comes from the so-
called liberals, not from the true
individualists, Walter Judd, for-
mer United States congressman,
said last night.
Judd, speaking on "The Impact
of Individualism on Our Foreign
Policy," opened the second lecture
of the University Activities Cen-
ter symposium on "The Future of
American Individualism."

geography is holding us back."
America, because of the vast-

Destroy Isolation
Now that America has destroyed
her barrier of isolation and be-

foreign policy more successfully if
she is to survive, he emphasized.
