College Young Democrats COUNCIL CANDIDATE:
Cut from National Party Feldkamp Plans To Request

.GENERAL MEETING .. .
for all students interested

summer progarn for underprivileged
high school youth.

Room 3D, Union

By LYNNE KILLIN
Last November the Democratic
National Committee dissolved the
College Young Democrats (CYD)
from their organization. However,
Steven Handler, the president of
the University's CYD, said that
this "doesn't really have an ef-
fect" on this chapter.
Handler explained that prior to
the split there was little direct
contact with the national organi-
zation. CYD's main work is with
the state Democratic party. M.
David Vaughn, the president of
the state Young Democrats, main-
tained that all of Michigan's CYD
groups are still members of the
state party organization.
Conflict
Why the national committee dis-'
solved the CYD is not known.
However, there had been conflict
for several months. Part of the
problem was general dissatisfac-
tion and opposition concerning
President Johnson, the party head.
However "The New Republic"

felt the proximate cause was a
resolution expressing "earnest and
sincere disapproval of the present.
administration policy in Viet
Nam." The CYD had called for
immediate cessation of the bomb-
ing of North Viet Nam, replace-I
ment of United States troops by#
UN forces and negotiations to de- c
termine the future of both North
and South Viet Nam under a pleb-
iscite supervised by the UN.
Services Denied
The national committee was up-I
set and refused them its facilities
for duplicating and mailing the
resolution. Normally the CYD is
permitted the use of such services.
Zolton Ferency, the state par-
ty chairman, believes this to be a
"very serious matter." However, he
predicts that the CYD will be re-
organized to fit into the national
party structure as the 1968 cam-
paign approaches.
He sees them as "extremely use-'
ful" both as an excellent train-
ing ground for future leadership'
and as an entrance for youth into'
party activities. Moreover, he sees
the CYD as important for the
party as it provides an approach
to youth and its problems.

Housing
By MICHAEL DOVER ;
John C. Feldkamp, director of ;
University housing, said recently
that if he is elected Ann Arborc
city councilman from the ThirdC
Ward, he will fight for the changes
in zoning laws prohibiting high f
density, low cost housing.
He also indicated that he wouldt
be willing to recommend to the

The contractor has said that he

40 per cent less than those usual-
ly offered the University, accord-
ing to Davis.
Density Problem
Davis said that Feldkamp's pre-
vious objection that the housing
units would be of too great a dens-
ity for the particular area on
North Campus-too near low dens-
ity housing, such as Zeta Beta
Tau fraternity - was misleading.
He said that there are "vast ex-
panses" of land surrounding the
proposed site on three sides, al-
though all of that area would not
be part of the co-op site.
He said that if this land were
taken into consideration in the
figuring of then umber of resi-
dents per acre, the result would
be comparable to other North
Campus housing units.
240 Students
The proposed housing would
contain space for 240 students and
would be classified "associate" or
"affiliated" housing, similar to the
classification of fraternities and
sororities. Presently the University
"sponsors" 204 co-op units, owns
360 co-op units, and "sponsors"
an additional 2,781 in fraternities
and sororities.

If you filled in the puzzle correctly;you've probably guessed we're in the business of guiding
vehicles. If it floats, crawls, flies or orbits,, chances are we're at work on a guidance, navigation
or control system for it.
For instance, we're building the guidance/navigation system for Apollo and LM (Lunar Module);
we're working on SABRE, the new Self-Aligning Boost and Reentry system for missiles; on the
Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL); on the Titan lll-C Space Booster; and on avionics systems
for supersonic and subsonic aircraft of the future.
We're also working on the Ship's Self-Contained Navigation System (SSCNS) for the Navy; a
fire-control system for the new Main Battle Tank, a joint U.S.-Federal Republic of Germany
program; and advanced digital computer development for other military, space and commercial
applications.
You might like to know that we take your career growth seriously here at AC, too. Our Career
Acceleration Program includes "in-plant" instruction. There is also a Tuition Refund Plan
lavailable for any college-level courses taken to advance your career.
If you're completing your B.S. or M.S. degree in E.E., M.E., Math or Physics, check into the excit
ing career opportunities at any of our three locations - Milwaukee, Boston, and Santa Barbara.

FIRE THE TEACHER!
In 13th century Italy, students had a system. They formed
guilds and hired and paid their own teachers. Those professors who
failed to teach-or who were found intellectually lacking-were
fired.
At AC Spark Plug Division of General Motors, we think certain
aspects of this situation exist in today's business world. We en-
courage our employes to be perpetual students . .. and as students,
we believe that they deserve and should,.have the opportunity to
continue to learn and be stimulated.
We make this as easy as possible. We have a branch of the
University of Michigan right here in town. Ann Arbor, East Lans-
ing and Detroit are about 65 miles away. In certain instances, we
may authorize an educational leave of absence.
The Film Adult Education Program ofofers 1200 daytime and
evening classes. College credit is given for many of them. In addi-
tion to all this, AC provides inplant management training courses
like Human Relations Principles, Critical Path Planning, Labor
Relations and Cost Control. What's more, the General Motors
Tuition Refund Plan provides financial aid for employes who wish
to continue their formal education.
We need perpetual, students in our business. Our growth
and varied product line requires that our people continually grow
in professional ability and leadership capability.
Even in 20th century America, we still remember 13th century
Italy.
