Thomas said that specific in-

She fears apartments which "over-

With a high percentage of grad-
uate students in her ward, Mrs.
Burns said she is "all for student
voter registration." She said that
she had aided students in seeking



counsel during past registration
periods. She theorized that when
students are granted voting power,
political parties will be able to
represent them in expressing their
views and desires.
Thomas thinks that students
who live in Ann Arbor most of
the year should be granted voting
rights in Ann Arbor rather than
in their parents' home town, to
encourage concern with "civic
operations and responsibilities."
He said efforts should be made
by Council to urge businesses such
as junk yards and slaughterhouses
to leave residential neighborhoods.
He felt this could be done by offer-
ing certain fringe land parcels to
middle-size industries and approp-
riately zoning such areas to en-

action would raise tax revenues

Thomas agreed with Mrs. Burns
that their is insufficient need for
a board and that the work could
be handled by the City's Human
Relations Commission.
Thomas, however, said that
some Council members including
his opponent had advocated low-

suggested to encourage admission
of Negro candidates to the force,
Thomas said that such a policy

was not desired by the Negro com-
munity and ran contrary to the
equal responsibility demands of
the civil rights movement.
Thomas said he favored a pro-

recently placed on the "subversive" list by the Justice Depart-

ways of responding to the national and long-range issues raised
by the Attorney General's powers under the Subversive Activities

energies of other faculty members in meeting this larger problem,"
the faculty group stated.
The group affilmed that it is "our responsibility as educators
to encourage and assist students freely to associate for the free
investigation of political and social ideas, whether or not we

The jailing of the students on
Monday and Tuesday resulted in
a vigil on the lawn of MSU Presi-

the fact that the four were not
allowed to post bond. The Mich-
igan State Court of Appeals ruled
yesterday on an "emergency mo-

and directed the Ingham County
Circuit Court to set bond "com-
mensurate with the situation but
not in excess of $300."
The three students, Fred Janv-

Oct. 12 while passing out anti-war

The four were found guilty of

Student' Apathy Claims

'U' Says Tuition Rise
Not Planned Now, But
May Be Necessary
Special To The Daily
LANSING-The Senate Approp-
riations Committee, in hearings
sparked by heated debate over the
prospect of another tuition in-
crease and the percentage of out-
of-state -students, heard University
administrators ask for sizeable in-
crease in funds over Gov. George
Romney's budget requests.
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan Smith presented the
University's case for a $16 million
increase in its portion of state
funds over last year. The, Univer-
sity for the fiscal year 1966-67
had requested over $66 million in
state support. Romney, in his
budget thit he sent to the Legis-
lature last January, had only
allocated $54.2 million.
Sources in Lansing indicate that
a sizeable majority of the approp-
riations committee are favorable
to at least equaling Gov. Romney's
budget recommendations, with the
possibility of increases over these
Considerable controversy arose
early in the committee session,
when Sen. Jan Vanderploeg (D-
North Muskegon) asked Smith if
the University was threatening the
committee with a tuition increase,
if increased appropriations, of the
size asked by the University, were
not granted.
Smith indicated that the Uni-
versity had no plans for a tuition
increase at this time and was not
attempting to threaten the Legis-
lature, but that if sufficient rev-
enues cannot be raised a tuition
increase might be assessed as a
last resort.
Debate also centered around the
enrollment of out-of-state stu-
dents. Sen. Garland Lane (D-
Flint), chairman of the Approp-
riations Committee, pointed to an
"agreement" in 1963 between the
Legislature and the University
that "the figure of out-of-state
students would not rise above" the
'64 figures. He questioned whether
the statistics indicated that this
agreement had been kept.
The committee also criticized
the 39 "deficiency" states, which

Newly-Dedicated ISR Fills
Dual Research, Training Role

In Recent All-Campus Elections

The new building at 426 Thomp-
son is not just four walls and six
floors. It houses the' Institute for
Social Research, one of the big-
gest university-affiliated social re-
search centers in the nation. The
new building will be officially ded-
icated this week.
ISR is distinctive for more rea-
sons than just its size. Being an
integral part of the University but
receiving only approximately 10
per cent of its income from it, ISR
is essentially self-supporting, Gov-
ert van den Bosch, assistant to
the director of ISR, says. ISR col-
laborates internationally in much
of the research done.
Twenty years old this year, ISR
has expanded from an original
center "in the field of public
opinion survey," as stated in the
original Regental action that es-
+ahlihad +his GQareph fareilit

search on the Utilization of Sci-
entific Knowledge-each under its
own director.
CI Personnel
Since many personnel of ISR
are also faculty members of theI
University, salaries are similar to
departmental levels and determin-
ed by University policy.
SAsfor a yearly budget, Stephen
'Withey, SRC's acting director, not-
ed that the staff budget mainly
comes from "income to be obtain-
ed during a year from research
projects. We don't start the year
with money in the bank; we fi-
nance our work as we go along."
As Govert van den Bosch, assist-
ant to the director of ISR, pointed
out, there is also a small reserve
fund to finance the continuity of
the staff. Some of the fund was
used to finance the new building.

For two months, delicate mech-
anisms such as elevator doors have
been receiving constant attention.
Since ISR used to be spread
out in various houses and old
buildings, these minor problems
have been overlooked when the
ISR staff considers the efficien-
cy in having the whole organiza-
tion together-"It's wonderful to
have everybody under one roof,"~
van den Bosch beams,
The 22 program directors of ISR
are in charge of conceptualizing
and securing support for the var-
ious research projects. Private con-
cerns, foundations and the federal
government are the financial sup-
porters of ISR.
Withey said, "We go to them
and sell our ideas for their sup-
port. Sometimes someone comes to

The perennial victor of Student
Government Council elections, stu-
dent apathy, scored another re-
sounding victory last week, and
remained the overwhelming choice
of 85 per cent of the student body'
A vocal 15 per cent minority
elected Ed Robinson, '67, and
Cindy Sampson, '68, president and
vice-president of SCC for the com-
ing year.
Last fall's elections showed a
voter turn out of 4,268, or about
13 per cent of the eligible student
voters. Though inclement weather,
confusing voting procedures and
various other explanations are
often given for poor voter turn-
outs, records for the past four
years indicate " a range of from
nine per cent in the fall 'of '64
to 27 per cent in the f all of '62,
with the majority of the elections
showing about 15 per cent of the
student body voting.
The number of candidates seek-
ing Council seats has varied dur-
ing this period from six candidates

By contrast, the largest voter
turnout was recorded for the elec-
tion in the fall of '62, when 7,193,
or about 27 per cent of the stu-
dents voted. The big issue of that
election was a referendum to de-
cide whether or not the University
should continue its membership in
the National Student Association.
The referendum passed by the
slight margin of 180 votes.
In the past few years, SGC elec-

tions have brought with them the
rise (and usually rapid decline) of
various campus political parties.
The spring '64 elections saw the
emergence of SGRU (Student
Government Reform Union),
SURGe (Students United for Re-
sponsible Government-eventual-
ly), and Voice, the only one of
these three parties still active on

peared in spring '65, running nine
Council candidates. The candida-
cies of seven of them was con-
tested when they' were charged
with campaigning in University
buildings in violation of electionI
rule's. Charges w e r e dismissed
when it was determined that the
literature was being distributed
under the auspices of Group as a

and not by individuals.

'U' Students JoinSleep-In Vigil
At Micigan Senate Chambers

The Michigan State Senate
chambers were the sight of a
sleep-in last night and today by
angry members of an ad-hoc group
banded together to protest block-
age of minimum wage legislation.
University students were among
those protesting the failure of

bills with needed amendments to
the Minimum Wage Act. The
groups vowed not to leave the
chambers of the Senate, which is
meeting in a night session until
proper action had been taken.
Their sleep-in is to continue in-

raise the minimum wages of all
people who work."
Ron Koenig, CORE's represen-
tative at the sleep-in, stated that
minority groups make up the ma-
jority of the depressed class. He
stated, "CORE has been involved
