Lack Authority Over
Students and Faculty
According to high officials at
the state capitol in Madison, the
Wisconsin legislature has begun
an unprecedented drive that might
give the representative body con-
trol over the University of Wis-,
consin's internal affairs.
Majority Floor Leader of the'
Assembly J. Curtis McKay (R-
Ozaukwe) told The Daily last
night that state legislators feel
t h a t Wisconsin administrators
have no real authority or control
over students and faculty on the
Madison campus. "There is no
question about that." He said that
this can no longer be tolerated.
The initial action came Wednes-
day when a resolution passed the
body asking President Harrington
of the university to conduct a
study of the university. The reso-
lution, which passed by a vote of

WASHINGTON UP) - President
Johnson told Congress yesterday
he will order younger men drafted

graduate students ended, under a
lottery-type system as part of a
general overhaul of the Selective
Service System.
The new system would place
graduating college seniors in a
"prime" draft pool with 19-year-
olds for one year, after which
their age would determine their
draft status. Johnson said he has
postponed indefinitely a decision
on whether or not to continue un-

However, Spurr said that an
item would appear on the agenda'
of Wednesday's regular meeting
of the Graduate School's execu-
tive committee regarding matters
of academic discipline. He explain-
ed that the committee would "sim-

and with proper due process."
The Sesquicentennial Alumni
program interrupted by hecklers
featured Sen. Philip Hart (D-
Mich, and House Minority Lead-
er Gerald Ford (R-Mich) in a
discussion of "The Political Pic-

Michael Zweig and Samuel
Friedman, both graduate students,
were two of about a dozen mem-
bers of the audience who nearly
halted the program protesting the
selection of questions to be an-
swered by Hart and Ford.
Meanwl,'ile, David Baad, admin-
istrative assistant to the vice-pres-
ident for student affairs, said that
if non-academic disciplinary meas-
ures were to be taken against the
University students involved, "the
proper procedure for handling this
sort of thing is for it to go be-
fore the Joint Judiciary Council."
Baad indicated that he did not
know whether Joint Judiciary had
decided to consider the matter.
Kenneth Krone, '66, chairman of
Joint Judiciary, said the matter
