Commission
Proposed
Ask Participation
Of Faculty, Students,
In ecision-Making
Collegiate Press service
BERKELEY, Cal.-In response
to last month's student strike, the
Berkeley faculty is about to set
up another committee to explore
ways to govern this huge campus.
The Policy Committee of the
Academic Senate has proposed a
Commission on University Gov-
ernance, with six students and six
faculty members, to strengthen
student participation in decision-
making. The Senate is expected
to approve the proposal at its
meeting today.
With a noteof desperation, the
Policy Committee declared in an
open letter to the University that
Berkeley "may be nearing the last
moment" when a "vicious cycle
that threatens to institutionalize
both mass disruption and 'resort'
to police on our campus" can be
broken. The Committee warned
that "one consequence of a con-
tinued inability to govern our-
selves wil be destructive inter-
vention from outside."
Commission Powers
The proposed Commission would:
-Define the respective areas in
which students, faculty and ad-
ministration should .exercise con-
trol.
Assess steps for increasing and
improving student participation in
formulation of educational pol-
icies.
-Find ways to make the exist-
ing student government an "ef-~
fective agency for all segments
of the student body.
Free Forum
-Investigate means for improv-
ing the quality of the free forum,
"while recognizing that political
advocacy cannot be separated
from controversy and emotional
commitment"
-Study disciplinary procedures
and methods for reviewing the
content of rules.
--Examine university policies
regarding activities of non-stu-
dents.
Faculty members of the Com-
mission would be selected by the
Academic Senate; student mem-
bers by the Associated Students.
Objections on Wording .
The proposal. was brought up
for consideration at last Tues-
day's Senate meeting, but because
of certain objections to the word-
ing it was not brought to a vote.
It is likely to pass with amend-
ments this Tuesday.
Fears Election
The Policy Committee noted in
its proposal that "the time re-
quired by an election . .. would
greatly delay the institution of the
Commission." It also said that it
did not believe that "the kind of
balanced and representative stu-
dent membership that is essential
o the success of the Commission
would be likely to be secured by
an election."
The student strike which
prompted the Policy 'Committee's
proposal took more than 5,ooo stu-
dents out of classes during the
first week of December. The boy-
cott protested the administration's
calling in city police to disperse
a sit-in against Navy recruiters in
the student union.I
One of the strike's demands was
that "negotiations begin to estab-
lish a system of just and effective
student representation in the for-
mulation of a newset of policies
regulating' student activity."

versity's voluntary Reserve Officer

is expected to lose academic credit
and curricular standing next
month in a formal faculty vote on
the issue.

British Prime Minister Harold Wilson and Foreign Secretary George Brown arrived in Italy yesterday

IN NEW YORK, SAN FRANCISCO:
Collegec Students Hold Boycott
To Protest Cafeteria. Prices

Following a bitter campus-wide
debate over the merits of theI
ROTC program, the faculty indi-
cated in an unofficial poll two
weeks ago that it favored abolition
of academic standing for student,
military training.
The debate over ROTC was
sparked by the .Boston University
News, the student weekly, last
September when it published a
three-page attack on the Univer-
sity's Army-Air Force cadet pro-
gram in it~s opening issue of the
Syear. The News called for an end
to ROTC's "privileged" academic
status on campus and urged that
the ROTC program be made an
extra-curricular activity.
Military Propaganda
"ROTC makes no pretense of
being open to free and creative
discussion of thehmilitary and its
alternatives," the News said.
"Rather it is 'indoctrination. It is
propaganda issued by a military
hierarchy beyond the University's
control . .
The paper charged that the
campus military "simultaneously
offers official credit, awards 'pro-
fessorships'(outside the jurisdic-
tion of our own faculty), speaks
on official platforms, receives
free rent, occupies precious class-
room space, and in general mani-
pulates a totalitarian discipline
behind the mask of educational
sanctuary and under the name of
the University we all constitute."
The editorial was accompanied
by a faculty petition calling ROTC
"inappropriate in purpose, sub-
stance or control to a university
curricilum."

Harold C. Case issued a state- W
ment that "to rule ROTC off-cam-
pus... . would be as much a denial
of the traditional rights and privi-
leges of students as to make it AM ERI
mandatory."
Philosophy professor Erazin Ko-
hak supported the ROTC program
because he said it encouraged a ITERA 7
civilian army through college
training-in sharp contrast to the
professional armies he encountered
while growing up in Europe.P o F d
In response to the News attacks,

gation of the military program. efIFLhei

nothing, but cadets argued that
their classes represented "leader- ro
ship training" rather than "in- f
doctrination." Cadet public infor- ;
mation officer Howard A. David-
son ascribed the anti-ROTC move-
ment to "general anti-militarism "
and specific opposition to the war
in Viet Nam rather than concern
for the program's academic valid-
ity.
Speculation on the Feb. 15 fac-
ulty vote ranges from top faculty
sources, who seem assured that Ug I Mut 1pUr
ROTC will lose academic stand-
ing, to ROTC Major Clovis B
Proulx, who told the Ohio Wes-
leyan Transcript. "I don't think r ViW riter- n-Re

ter. There is . .an investigating
committee, but I don't think any-

Collegiate Press Service
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Taking
a hint from last fall's housewives'
boycotts of supermarkets, students
have begun to demand power to
determine the cost of food in col-+
lege cafetarias.I
Students at Hunter College in
New York City and at San Fran-
cisco held successful boycotts of+
their campus dining services last
month to protest rising prices.
They claimed that the food
service, supposed to be a non-
profit organization, was actually
operating at a profit and was
charging higher prices than at
other New York City college cafe-
terias. The cafeteria supervisor ex-
plained that her hamburgers cost
more than those at nearby City
College of New York because the
CCNY hamburgers weigh less.
Price Reductions
Nevertheless, after three days
of boycotts against the cafeteria,
the students were given across-
the-board price reductions, and
the administration agreed to sub-
sidize any financial loss the cafe-
teria might incur a student-fac-
ulty "Kitchen Cabinet" was also
formed to recommend new price
scales, to examine the cafeteria
books, and to keep track of food
service policy,
"We are actually running our
own cafeteria," committee mem-

ber Al Handel said. "This was our
ultimate goal-to have students
determine cafeteria prices and
policy."
Cafeteria directors at San Fran-
cisco State College faced a two-
front battle, as students protested
a 15 per cent increase in food
prices and a union of student
cafeteria employees demanded a
hike in hourly wages.
Nine-Day Boycott

has also spread to Canada. Thirty
University of Windsor students
picketed the cafeteria after one-
third of the resident students were
stricken with attacks of nausea
and dizziness.
Medical authorities, who care-
fully checked the cafeteria and
other campus facilities for a possi-
ble source of bacterial infection,

The employees got their raise, were unable, however, to pinpoint
but students carried out a Nine- the cause of the outbreak of stu-
day Students for a Democratic dent illness.
Society-led boycott when the cafe- -- - - -

teria's governing board refused toI
accept their demands for a 20 per
cent price reduction. During the
boycott, called 90 per cent effect-
ive" by its leaders, an association
of married students' wives and the
California Committee to Legalize
Abortion sold food in the union
which undercut the cafeteria
prices.
Since the end of Christmas
vacation, students have been eat-
ing at the cafeteria, while the
boycott committee seeks to organ-
ize an official vote on the organ-
ization of the cafeteria's managing
board. The cafeteria management
is conducting a study of prices,
student attitudes, and possibilities
for change.
