Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom
Five Men Remain as Candidates for 'U' Presi


Copyright, 1967, The Michigan Daily
After months of searching and
screening for a new University
President, the Regents have nar-
rowed down a list of 200 prospects
to about five serious contenders.
Formally, about ten men are
still in. the running to replace
President Harlan Hatcher, who
retires in December. But top Uni-
versity sources indicate only five
men are now serious contenders.
"We may have something definite
moving within the next week,"
says one Regent.r
Sources indicate five men now
being intensively considered are:
Franklin , Murphy and Roger
Heyns, respective chancellors of

the University of California's Los
Angeles and Berkeley campuses;
John Lederle, president of the
University of Massachusetts; Rob-
en Fleming, chancellor of the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin's Madison
campus, and John Gardner, U.S.
Secretary of Health, Education
and Welfare.,
Chairman of the Presidential
Selection Committee Regent Rob-
ert P. Briggs (R-Jackson) says
that the Regents have not made
their final decision and that no
one has been offered the job yet.
This week Fleming was offered
the presidency of the University
of Minnesota, and Gardner and
Lederle have publicly denied any
interest in taking a new job.

Minnesota Regents Chairman
Charles W. Mayo said Sunday
that Fleming has been given two
weeks to decide if he wants to
take that school's top post.
Most think Gardner was serious
when he announced recently that
he wasn't interested in becoming
a college president this year. "He's
committed to President Johnson
for another year," says one top
University official.
However, many believe Lederle
might take the post here if offered
it despite his recent public an-
nouncement that he did not want
to leave Massachusetts. He is be-
ing pushed hard by some faculty
members here led by Prof. James
K. Pollock of the political science

B o t h California Chancellors
Murphy and Heyns have been con-
sidered potential successors to
University of California President
Clark Kerr who was fired in
After a published report in Jan-
uary that Heyns was "interested"
in the job here, Briggs says "the
roof caved in on us."
California papers played up the
story which reportedly prompted
some pressure on Heyns not to de-
sert Berkeley. Heyns is known to
be concerned about seeing through
his job on the strife-ridden Cali-
fornia campus.
Heyns, who was vice-president
for academic affairs here until
September of 1965, has been per-

baps the most controversial pres-
idential prospect here.
Heyns is the top choice of both
the student and faculty advisory
committees to k the Regents on
presidential selection. He was also
given a top ranking by the alumni
advisory committee which gave
group rankings.
A University graduate who was
at the school for 25 years prior
to going to California, Heyns is
enjoying wide faculty support
here. However, he has been facing
some stiff faculty opposition too.
The Regents have been meeting
regularly with a wide variety of
faculty groups to discuss poten-
tial presidents. At one of these
meetings held last week repre-
sentatives of the business admin-

istration school reportedly spoke
out strongly against Heyns.
Some of the opposition report-
edly stems from his handling of
budgeting as a vice-president here.
While Murphy, Heyns, Lederle.
Fleming, and Gardner are top con-
tenders, the Regents have recently
been taken a close look at several
other prime candidates.
Among them are Vernon Alden,
president of Ohio University; Rob-
ert Goheen, president of Prince-
ton University, Homer Babbidge,
president of the University of
Connecticutband Elvis Stahr, pres-
ident of the University of. In-
At the moment none of these
four are considered likely to be-

come the new president. Some, like
Goheen, are reportedly not in-
terested in leaving their current
posts. Also some think that 43-
year-old Alden may be too young
to replace the 69-year-old Hatcher.
The Regents are pushing hard
to pick the new man soon to ward
off heavy competition from other
universities seeking a new presi-
They have been supplementing
their regularly monthly meetings
with numerous conference phone
call discussions. And they also have

Gov. George Romney's fiscal re-

the Senate Taxation Committee
and a House Republican caucus
yesterday, bringing the proposal
an important step closer to ap-
The House-revised version in-
creases the proposed personal in-
come tax to three per cent and the
corporate income tax to level to
six per cent. The House amend-
ments also eliminated a clause
giving a $10 refund on state sales
tax, but retained a three cent a
pack increase in the cigarette tax.
The bill remained virtually un-
changed in the Senate.
Romney yesterday urged that

be brought to floor' debate and

Allan F. Smith, vice president
for academic affairs, told mem-
bers of the Appropriations Com-
mittee on their visit to the Uni-
"We are fully aware that the
budget recommended by Gov.
Romney calls for expenditures
which require new levels of rev-
enue beyond those Michigan's tax
structure can produce." But he
noted that the level of appropria-
tions recommended simply "will
not do the job."
The University is scheduled for
$52.2 million, the largest portion

of Romney's $545 million Higher
Education Bill. This represents- a
$4.3 million increase over last
year's operating budge,t but is
$12 million below what the Uni-
versity had requested, based on
projected requirements.
It is estimated, however, that
to maintain the minimum pro-
gram which includes a 2,244 en-

cost of inflation that the Univer-
sity will need $6.5 million over last
year's $57.9 million.
Michigan State University will
fall three million dollars short of
its minimum commitment if the
budget remains at its present al-
lotment of $59.3 million, according
to Philip May, MSU vice president
for business and finance.

Student Government Council
last night ,recommended that
sophomore women's hours be elim-
inated effective as of this fall. SGC
based its recommendation on the
assumption that "sophomore wom-
en, in general, are capable of reg-
ulating their own hours."
The-Council also consideredtwo
measures concerning regulation of
student organizations. It passed a
motion which changed the regis-
tration procedures for student
groups. Under the new regulation
organizations would be required
to submit two names .of officers,
as in the past, but the names
would be held confidential by SGC.
Themove is designed -to pro-
research by members of Council,
unauthorized use of their names
by outside groups. Other provi-
sions of the change would require
that members be notified bySGC
if their names were subpoenaed
by a government agency or used
by Joint Judiciary Council for dis-
ciplinary action.
Motion Postponed
After originally passing a mo-
tion which would permit non-stu-a
dents to be voting members of
student organizations, the Council
reconsidered the move and post-
poned action on the matter for a

the legal service during the spring
and summer half terms was intro.
The actions were taken at the
final meeting of the Council under
the administration of outgoing
