Form New
Committee to
Study Rules.
Joint Judiciary, SGC
To Revise Booklet
On Social Regulations
A committee which is being
formed to study non-academic
rules and regulations and suggest
changes. to the Office of Student
Affairs has been termed "a very
good idea, and one we (OAS), will
happily cooperate with" by Vice-
President for Student Affairs
Tichard Cutler.
The committee will be the com-
bined effort of Joint Judiciary and
S t u d e n t Government Council.
Stuart Deutsch, '66, chairman of
4 Joint Judiciary said that four
members of Joint Judiciary were
appointed to the committee last
week. They will work with four
SGC members soon to be ap-
Non - academic regulations for
all University students are enum-
erated in a booklet "Standards for
Students" which is distributed to
students at the beginning of the
fall term. The booklet contains
rules concerning such things as
automobiles, intoxicants, women's'
hours and off-campus housing.
Yearly Revision
The booklet is revised every
year, and in the past, Deutsch
said, OAS has asked SGC and
Joint Judiciary to recommend
possible revisions. Deutsch empha-
sized, however, that the recom-
mendations have always been
made on a strictly informal basis.
The new committee will draw
up a draft of the booklet for next
fall, including suggested changes,
and formally submit it to OAS.
Deutsch said that changes in cer-
tain general areas are being con-
sidered, such as liberalizing dormi-
0 tory open-opens.
He feels that a formal commit-
tee will be much more influential
than the previous informal com-
munication, and that non-aca-
demic regulations is an area in
which "s t u d e n t participation
should exist."
The purpose of the "Standards
for Students" booklet, he added,
is to "operationalize this philoso-
phy" rather than to act as an arbi-
trary and capricious set of regula-
tions to hamstring students."

Groundbreaking ceremonies were held yesterday for the Uni-
versity's $17,294,845 School of Dentistry building at the east end
of the present dental building. This construction represents the
state's largest investment in any single structure except the
Mackinac Bridge. Participating were President Harlan Hatcher,
Dean William R. Mann, various local, state and federal officials,
and representatives of the Kellogg Foundation and the state
dental association. Completion is planned for 450 days after the
start of demolition of the existing structure.

At its meeting last night Voice political party discussed three
measures. They voted support for a SNCC-sponsored project in
California to call a strike of grape pickers in the wine fields.
Voice will picket stores in the campus area that sell Schenley's
liquors in protest of that company's alleged underpayment of its
employes, the grape pickers.
On March 25-26, Voice will join with .a student group from
Wayne State University in holding international days of protest
of the war in Viet Nam. Plans call for a protest parade down
Woodward Ave. in Detroit. In connection with this, they hope to
have another "teach-in" in Hill and Angell Auds. and Mason Hall.

Ford Foundation has awarded the University a $175,000
grant for the training of foreign statisticians. The project, slated
to extend for five years will be headed by Prof. Leslie Kish of the
sociology department, program director of the University's Survey
Research Center.. Approximately eight foreign students a year
will be taught how to use sampling techniques of acquiring social
and economic data.
The University has also been presented a $35,000 NASA grant
for investigation of the electromagnetic properties of materials for
application to masers, lasers and other solid state devices.
Legislation introduced in the Congress this week by the ad-
ministration is likely to be beneficial to the University's proposed
Highway Safety Research Institute, Prof. Robert L. Hess, asso-
ciate director of the Institute of Science sand Technology, said
yesterday. The legislation calls for the establishment of federal
research facilities on automotive safety.
In addition to the new institute at the University, which was
financed by $10 million grants from the Ford Motor Co., General
Motors, Corp. and the Automobile Manufacturers Association,
laborities for auto testing and driver licensing standards are
already in existence at Cornell and the University of California.

More than 200 women marched yesterday from the University
of California's Berkeley campus to the Oakland Army Induction
Center to protest U.S. involvement in Viet Nam.
The demonstration, labeled the Viet Nam Day Committee's
women's march for peace, went without incident. A handful of
Berkeley policemen accompanied marchers to the Oakland city
limit. Another small group of Oakland officers took over there.

Myers Announces
Michigan Students
Must Send Records
Most graduating seniors and
graduate students in Michigan col-
leges will be required to take phys-
ical examinations this spring, ac-
cording to Col. W. J. Myers, dep-
uty state director of the Selective
In addition, draft boards will
send all undergraduates question-
naires on their academic record
and future plans.
Myers added that he had not
been notified officially of any
plans to reinstate the written exam
given college students during the
Korean War.
Students in "protected areas of
study" will be exempt from the
physicals, Myers said. Most of
these protected areas are in the
sciences ,though there are a few
humanities in which students are
considered exempt from the draft.
Request Information
The questionnaire will ask for
information on the student's ma-
jor, gradepoint, expected date of
graduation and an explanation for
any period in which he dropped
out of school.
Myers said the only announce-
ment relating to written examina-
tions was that given to the press
recently by Lt. Gen. Lewis B.
Hershey, director of the Selective
Service System. The purpose of
the test would be to "determine
whether or not it would be in the
nation's interest to let him, (the
student) go to school.
Myers noted "a student is 1-A
unless he convinces the board he
should be otherwise." Asked about
the consequences if a student does
not fill out the questionnaire, he
commented, "if he doesn't fill it
out why should the board give
him any consideration for stu-
dent deferment?"
Not a Reaction
He said the, questionnaire is
not a reaction to colleges' reluct-
ance to release confidential infor-
mation on a student's record. "It's
not the job of the boards to re-
quest records from the school-
it's the responsibility of each reg-
istrant to provide information if
the board wants it."
Myers expects the draft quota
for April to be somewhat lower
than that for March, which is 3,-
200, though he has not received
a definite assignment. He does not
foresee any reduction in Michi-
gan's draft quotas in the future.
Myers pointed out that even if
a truce should be arranged with-
in the next few months, it may
be a long time before auotas are

Faculty, 'U' Say Employment
Not Altered by Summer Pay

At least three University stu-
dents registered to vote yesterday
afternoon at the Ann Arbor City
Clerk's office in the first attempt
by the Student Housing Associa-
tion to register University stu-
dents. More are expected to regis-
ter in the next few days.
The action was seen as a "test
case" paving the way for the regis-
tration of many other students in
similar circumstances.
The students were only asked to
sign sworn statements establish-
ing that they were 21, residents
of - Michigan for at least six
months and residents of Ann Ar-
bor now and for at least 30 days
prior to election day. They en-
countered little difficulty from
Deputy City Clerk Flemming and
registered within five minutes.
Two of the students, Robert
Bodkin, '67, SGC member and
president of SHA, and Alex Good-
win, '66, SGC member, noted that
although they were over 21 and
partially self-supporting, the most

will not return home in case of
illness or injury substantiated
their argument for registration,
they said.
This registration is the first .of
several actions planned by SHA
and SGC to stimulate student'
registration. Y e s t e r d a y 10,000
graduate students received letters
asking them to register in a bid

to influence future city housing
"Your registration and voting
ability is crucial to the improve-
ment of city planning. If enough
of you (2000 or more) are willing
to register, then the current power
structure in Ann Arbor will have
to listen to the housing needs of
students," the letter stated.

It is noted that many justifica-
tions exist for student registra-
tion, notably the U.S. Census
Bureau's inclusion of students in
the Ann Arbor population and the,
subsequent per capita allottment
of federal aid on that basis, it
added. A reply card, indicating
interest, was enclosed with each

IHA Presidents Council Elects

The consensus of University ad-
ministrators and professors is that
lower pay for teaching one of
the summer half-terms is not a
determining factor in discouraging
faculty from remaining for part
of the summer.
The arrangement on faculty pay
was reached last March. Under
this agreement, while a professor
receives 25 per cent of his annual

terrent from teaching in the sum-
William Hays, associate dean of
the literary college, said the an-
nual salary rate standard of pay-
ment the University now uses is
based on eight and one-quarter
months of teaching, with two days'
of non-teaching time being ac-
cumulated with each month of
This means the yearly salary a

This means that for teaching
a two-month half term, a profes-
sor is paid two-ninths his salary,
or 22 per cent. Yet when a pro-
fessor teaches for the entire sum-
mer semester, he is paid for teach-
ing an entire semester, or 50 per
cent of his salary, Hays said.
However, under the compromise
reached by the faculty and admin-
istration, it was decided that a
professor cannot teach for 12
months, or three semesters
