Social Work
Meets Here
Focuses on Need
For Student Voice
In Program Planning
"If our schools will not 'allow
student representation in the deci-
sion-making process of our edu-
cational system, then we mustturn
our schools upside down until they
do," Alan Haber, Grad, said yes-
Speaking in the keynote address
to the Tri-University Conference
on Social Work being held at thv
University this week, Haber, a doe
toral candidate in Social Work,
explained that students are cur-
rently showing concern over gain-
ing a respected voice in curricular
decisions, "not because we are un-
ruly, but because we are serious
about our education and want to
protect the commitments to which
we are .directing our lives."
The two-day conference, focus-
ing on the theme "Social Work
and ,the Status Quo," was devel-
oped from recent calls for repre-
sentation of students in planning
of social work programs. It is a
F prelude to a national social work
conference to be held in St. Louis
in mid-March.
The program, conducted in
Trueblood Auditorium, has drawn
over 600 delegates from 1 univer-
sities in the Midwest and the
South; their overriding goal is to
kform an organizational base from
which to work for a national social
work student organization.
The opening remarks to the
delegates were made by University
President Harlan Hatcher, who
urged that students not lose sight
of theirprofessional commitment
in a push for unionization.
But great interest was shown in
working toward 'formal involve-
ment of students. Speeches and
panel discussions yesterday show-
ed a need for a vastly increased
role for students in the planning
of schools of social work.
"In organizing, our purpose is
not just to conflict with and con-
front the administration," said
Marvyn Novick, Grad, the chair-
man ofmthe conference. "We want
tl*e means of working toward
common goals with the admin-
istration, and for this we need an
efficient organizational base."
"We want to be able to press
demands rather than just ask," he
added, "we need a mechanism by
which to communicate our desires
to the faculty."
The conference, which annually
brings delegates from the Univer-
sity, Michigan State University
and Wayne State University into
consultation, was deliberately re-
structured this year to bring in
representatives from a larger num-
ber of schools.
In order to facilitate a direct
exchange between the -delegates
to develop areas of common con-
cern, the delegates adjourned into
twelve "house meetings" last night
which allowed for unlimited dis-
cussion in small groups.
The conference continues today
with remarks by Richard Cloward
of the Columbia University social
work school, who will speak on
"Priorities for Social Work. Edu-j
cation," followed by a reaction
panel discussion in the morning
session, beginning at 9:30.

WASHINGTON-The 25th Amendment, detailing what is
to be done if the President becomes unable to perform his
duties, went into the U.S. Constitution yesterday.
After a period of confusion, it appeared that Nevada was
the 38th state to rafity and thus' won the distinction of being
the commonwealth which completed adoption of the amend-
ment. Three-fourths of the states must accept an amendment,
after its passage by Congress, before a constitutional change i
UNITED NATIONS-Secretary-General U Thant appealed
last night for an unconditional end to the American bombing
of North Vietnam and an indefinite extension of the lunar new
year cease-fire in Vietnam.
It came about 24 hours before the expiration of a four-
day truce declared by South Vietnam and the United States.
They have declined to accept a seven-day truce called by Com-
munist North Vietnam and the Viet Cong.
Thant's statement said: "I have welcomed the cease-fire
which accompanies the celebration of the Vietnamese Tet lunar
new year and have appealed for its extension. I believe that an
indefinite and unconditional extension of this cease-fire would
help in moving this tragic conflict to the peace conference table.
GAINESVILLE, Fla.-University of Florida coed Pamela
Brewer was found guilty of "indiscreet and inappropriate conduct"
last night for posing nude for an off-campus magazine layout.
The faculty Discipline Committee announced its verdict to
her lawyer, Selig Goldin, and then proceeded with another hear-
ing to determine the 18-year-old coed's punishment.
The 10-member Discipline Committee went into closed ses-
sion after a stormy public hearing that was interrupted for 30
minutes by some 200 angry students who were unable to get into
the crowded Board of Regents room.
Miss Brewer, whose dimensions are draped fetchingly on her
5-foot-5 frame, was accompanied by her attorney. She wore a
snug peach sweater and a miniskirt cut at least three inches
above the knee. .

"I can no longer conscientiously serve in a system that sends
the flower of our youth to a war that our present administration
prolongs by its policy," wrote Virgil L. Gilman to the Illinois
Selective Service Board in his letter of resignation.
"We are doing less thap we should when, after supplying the
proper weapons, material and manpower, we hold this manpower

Ribicoff Says Universities Ignore
Responsibilities in Ghettoes

Lee Resigns
Post as V-P
Of Business
Will Accept Position
As Financial Officer
With 'U' of Chicago
Gilbert L. Lee, Jr., vice president
for business affairs, is resigning to
accept an appointment in April
with the University of Chicago as
the vice president for business and
finance, the universities jointly
announced yesterday.
Lee has been with the University
since 1951, In that year he became
controller and eventually was
named vice president for business
affairs in April of 1966, reporting
to Wilbur K. Pierpont, vice presi-
dent and chief financial officer,
While serving in this capacity,
Lee has been responsible for the
office of controller, personnel op-
erations, plant operations, serv-
ices enterprises, purchasing, and
management services.
Greater Responsibilities
At Chicago, a private institu-
tion originating from the financial
aid of John D. Rockefeller I, Lee
will command a wider range of
activities than those which his
present position entails. He will
handle all business-financial af-
fairs except investments, which
fare under the direction of' the
institution's treasurer. This is
somewhat similar to the financial
arrangement which was in effect
here at the University until the
division of duties in Pierpont's
office last April.
Lee, a Certified Public Account-
ant, was employed by Icerman,
Johnson and Hoffman public ac-
counting firm in Ann Arbor before
joining the University. He had re-
ceived his B.A. degree from Mich-
igan State University in 1941 and
the Master of Business Adminis-
tration from the. University in
Lee's inter-university activities
include a membership on the board
of the Association of Universities
for Research in Astronomy of
which he is currently vice presi-
dent. He is also on the board of
trustees of the University Corpora-
tion for Atmospheric Research.
Likewise he serves as a member
of the NationalAssociation of
College and University Business
Officers and of the Michigan
Association of Certified Public
Accountants. Since 1958, Lee has
taught in the summer short course
for college business management
at the University of Omaha.
"We are most reluctant," said
Pierpont, "to lose a close friend
and colleague whose wisdom, good
humor, and interest in University
affairs will be sorely missed. Mr.
Lee has been a key staff member
in developing and improving fi-
nancial operations to respond to.
the rapid growth of the Univer-
sity. However, we take pride in
the recognitionahe receives in be-
ing asked to accept responsibility
for business and financial affairs
at Chicago."
As yet no consideration has
been' givexn to a successor to Lee.
Until someone has been selected,.

Lee will work directly with Pier-

of the United Fund and as a mem-
ber of its budget committee, on

Ribicoff, however, said that
''tuition has been rising like mad
anyway, tax credit or no, because
tuition doesn't reflect what the

'rising cost of education."
He added that "either way
(helping students now in college
as opposed to allowing more stu-
dents to attend college) it doesn't
make any difference as far as I'm
concerned. The cost of education
is fantastic for all income groups.
It's the middle-income group that
gets it in the neck all the time and
never gets a break."
Ribicoff conceded that his pro-
