In his only public comment on
appointments to The Daily senior
staff, University President Harlan
Hatcher yesterday criticized The
Daily for "youthful harshness"
and replied to a story on his re-
lationship with the Board in Con-
trol of Student Publications.
On Thursday The Daily print-
ed an article saying that Hatcher
had told the chairman of the
Board, Prof. Luke Cooperrider of
the Law School, that Roger Rapo-
port, '68, was an "irresponsibe"
and "unacceptable candiate" for
editor of The Daily.
In his statement yesterday
Hatcher said that one of his re-
sponsibilities as President "is to
convey to the Board in Control of
Student Publication the concern
of the Regents. This I have done."
Hatcher also said he has tried
not to interfere with The Daily,
"pained as I have been at times by
its youthful harshness, and by the
occasional damage to the Univer-
sity which I and other's have
labored quietly to repair."
Rapoport, who was appointed
editor late Thursday, said, "It's
unfortunate, given the events of
the paste week- that harsh state-
ments obviously injurious to the
University's image cannot be end-
ed on both sides."
Hatcher also said that questions
"raised by the Board in Control"
about The Daily are "pertinent"
and "~also of, concern to the
Recently, the. Board sent a letter
to the Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs, requesting
the faculty group to "consider the
proper purpose, function and re-
sponsibility of a student news-
paper in this University commu-
nity, to consider whether the ex
isting arrangements at the Uni-
yersity adequately serve these
goals, and to' recommend changes
if better alternatives can be iden-
SACUA sent this request to the
Senate Assembly, which has tabled
"President Hatcher's statement
neither confirms nor denies The
Daily's story on his relationship
with the Board, but I believe it
virtually acknowledges its verac-
ity," commented former Daily edi-
tor Mark R. Killingsworth, '67.
"As the author of the original
news report I stand absolutely by
its authenticity and its accuracy.
As the past editor of The Daily I
find hypocritical his remarks
about conveying 'the concerns of
the Regents' and his own 'non-in-
terference' with The Daily," he
"The fact is that President
Hatcher conveyed his own 'con-
cerns' to Board Chairman Luke K.
Cooperrider and that his admir-
able record of 'non-interference'
ended in a sbrdid attempt to
smear an individual and subvert
a great newspaper," Killingswortb
The Hatcher statement read:
"The Regents of the University,
like many faculty, students and
citizens, have had occasion in the
past to question the judgment of
the editors of The Daily. The Re-
gents have been concerned about
their relationship to the student
publications, including The Daily,
because they are responsible for
them. This responsibility has been
delegated by the Regents to the
Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications, as set forth in the Re-
gents' Bylaws (Se. 31.4).

the President of the University is

SESQ UIGRA S FINALE:
Collins Performs Personalized Songs
By ANN L. MARCHIO
If Judy Collins didn't have a
guitar on her shoulder when she
stepped up to the mike in last
night's concert at Hill Aud., it
would have been impossible to tell
that she is a folk singer.
There was no hint of tight levis,
unkempt hair or a grudge against
the world in Miss Collins, who
was dressed in a pleasing blue crepe
Having established herself as be-I
ing part of but not controlled by
folk music, Miss Collins proceed-
ed to display her many musical
talents. This reflects her opinion
that music must be personal; not!
judged by labels or categories.
She feels that folk music by it-
self will never achieve great pop-
ularity. The future lies in folk-
rock, although a few of the best
traditional folk singers, like Doc
Watson, will always be in de-
mand. She claims that popular
music today is much improved,
being greatly influenced by folk
set-up workshops for houses to
compare ideas - like the .judic
workshop we had this year - we
can stimulate, I think, projects
that will go through and be mean-
ingful to the houses."
Miss Mochel hopes to establish
communication between the Uni-
versity community and the Greek
system in her capacity as ex-of-
fhcio member of SGC and to con-
tinue to have Panhel take stands
