The remarkable degree of suc-

part to the so-called "seed grant.".
This is the granting of CIC money
for travel and lodging expenses to
promote meetings by inter-uni-

possible projects. Although such a
grant is small, it has often meant

Late World News
By The Associated Press

The proposal that the literary
college establish a number of
courses on contemporary affairs
has been delayed because of ".-.
a number of problems and the
vague nature of the proposal. .,"
Professor Daniel Fusfeld of the
economics department said.
Fusfeld proposed last March that
the literary college establish a ser-
ies of courses dealing with con-
temporary affairs. The proposal
was immediately given to the liter-
ary college's curriculum commit
tee which decided that it merited
the attention of the school's execu
tive committee, since the proposal
crossed into the areas of financing,
administration, and' othergareas
not under the curriculum group's
This referral came in late April,
giving the executive committee no
chance to act upon the idea be-
fore summer 'vacation. This, to-
gether with the fact that the
group has, in Fusfeld's words, ".
more important things to consider
resulted in an absence of any defi-
nite action on the proposal.
Despite delays, the contempor-
ary affairs course proposal is still
under consideration. Fusfeld said
Monday, " I have been planning
and still plan to get a group of
students together who worked with
me on the project last year andj
try to work out the problems the
plan presents.'
Among the problems the project'
presents, he stated, are where the
money to run the courses will come
from, how the faculty will be se-
lected, how to schedule these pro-
grams, and how to eliminate the
vagueness of the original pro-
The concept of the course would
be rather unusual in that it would
be both interdepartmental and
very loosely constructed, that is,
the course content would be de-
termined by the students and their
faculty member. Professor Fus-
feld cited a course on Poverty in
America as an example, "The
group could meet, decide to go out
and read on the subject for a few
weeks, reconvene, and elect what
course they would pursue. Assum-
ing the students would want to do
individual research, they could
study their respective topics, then
meet to report on and evaluate,
their work."

MASSACHUSETTS-Edward J. McCormack, nephew of the
speaker of the U.S. House and long a rival of the Kennedy clan
in Massachusetts, won the Democratic governship nomination in
the Bay State yesterday.
In another featured contest in 11-state primary balloting,
Gov. Karl F. Rolvaag won renomination in Minnesota by an
emphatic margin. He did this although the convention of his

TEACHING FELLOWS have been welcomed to their "unique
dual status" as both teachers and students by University Vice-
President Allan F. Smith.
In a letter addressed to all teaching fellows, Smith explained
some of the benefits, material and intellectual, going to the grad-
uate student who is also a part-time teacher. He noted that
"many, probably most, of the eminent scholars of the present
served universities as teaching fellows."
Among special benefits received by the teaching fellow are
in-state tuition rates for himself and his wife, if she is also a
student; eligibility for the staff group life insurance and hospital
insurance programs; faculty library privileges; and access to
free parking lots served by University commuter buses. Parking
privileges in on-campus lots and structures are available only to
teaching fellows living far from Ann Arbor or those with physical
handicaps, Smith's letter explains.

When the J.D. degree was first
awarded in 1909, it was to distin-
guish between the candidates for
the law degrees who were gradu-
ates of approved universities and
colleges and those who were nor.
Within a few years it was also
used as a mark of distinction for
the students who maintained su-
perior academic records.
Since 1962, 'this has meant that3

tion of the faculty. The degree
"magna cum laude" will be
awarded to those graduating atj

Rising Costs
Force Down
Service Cuts
Food Price Inflation
Preceded Austerity
Measures in Housing
A constricted labor market and
rising food costs have precipitated
austerity cutbacks in the Univer-
sity residence hall, system this
year, Residence Hall Business
Manager Chet Malanoski reported
Malanoski cited the inflationary
tendencies of the entire economy
as the source of the greatly in
creased food costs. Malanoski, who
succeeded current Associate Direc-
tor of Housing Leonard Schaadt
as business manager for the dor-
mitories this semester, pointed
out that the removal of certain
dormitory services is not unlike
similar belt-tightening being done
in institutions and households
across the nation.
A majoar chunk of the increased
food prices have been due to the
summer price hike of the Michigan
Milk Producers Association. Bolgos
Farms, a major local supplier, re-
ports that costs to the distributor
have risen eight cents per gallon
in the time period since the in-
crease. This same rise in costs,
directly transmitted to the retail
consumer, is being effected across
the whole state, as well as in many
other parts of the nation.
Concerning the labor situation,
Malanoski pointed out that an
across-the-board wage increase to
University employees was required
to keep up with private businesses
and, in turn, keep the current
clerical and manual staff on the
University payroll. He said furth-
er, the increases, inclulding a dor-
mitory student kitchen help raise
from $1.25 to $1.40 per hour,

"to either raise prices or reduce
In following the latter course,

evening meals, employee bussing
of dishes and provision of table
Added on to these cutbacks was
the abolition of Associate Advis-
ors (House Mothers) in men's
houses. S. Daniel Rosemergy, di-
rector of Markley Hall, pointed
out, however, that the removal of
house mothers was not entirely
an efficiency measure. The deci-
sion was reached after much dis-
cussion about the actual advisa-
bility of the Associate Advisor's
role in the "home-away from-
home" environment.
Both Malanoski and Rosemergy
asserted that complaints from dor-
mitory residents have been rela-
tively sparse, except for those con-
cerning the exclusion of Sunday
evening meals.

By Conflict of. Interest Code

Special To The Daily
CARBONDALE, Ill.-A conflictI
of interest code for researchers
working on - federally-sponsored
projects, designed to ward off
governmental regulation, has been
adopted by the Southern Illinois
University Board of Trustees.
The code was drawn up jointly
by the American Association of
University Professors and the
American Council of Education in
December, 1964. The SIU Board
of Trustees, in adopting it, said it
"would help reduce the need for
detailed and onerous government
The document lists eight poten-
tial conflicts and stresses stand-'
ards and procedures to avoid or
forbid such practices.
The conflicts include:
--Orienting governmentally -
sponsored research to serve pri-
vate firms or interests of the re-
searcher without telling the uni-
versity or sponsoring agency;
-Purchasing major equipment,
or supplies from firms in which
the researcher has an itnerest
without disclosing the connection;
-Transmitting to a private firm
or using for personal gain the
products, results, materials or rec-
ords of a government-sponsored
--Using for personal gain "priv-
ileged information" such as knowl-
edge' of possible new sites for
government operations, new pro-
grams, and of the selection of
contractors or subcontractors;
-Negotiating or influencing the
negotiations of contracts relating
to the staff members research be-
tween the university and other
organizations the researcher main-
tainis an interest ;
-Accepting gifts or special fav-
ors from organizations with which
the university may do business or

ployes of the sponsoring agency
in any way that could be seen as
influencing the recipients;

It should establish accounting
procedures to insure that the fed-
eral. money is properly spent. A
system insuring that the univer-
sity knows the potentially con-
flicting' outside interests of its re-
search staff should be developed,
the code adds.
The university should establish
standards on conflict of interest

tions it has taken to avoid these
and provide advice on them, the
code says.
"The above process of disclosure
and consultation is the obligation
assumed by the university when
it accepts government funds for
research. The process, must, of
course, be carried out in a manner
that does not infringe on the le-
gitimate freedom and flexibility
of action of the university and its
staff members that have tradi-
tionally characterized a univer-
sity," the code declares.

Housemother Study Group
Established at IHA Meeting


State Board To Receive Tentative
Master Plan for Higher Education


Inter-House Assembly Monday
night established a committee to
review and report on the present
action .being taken on "phasing
out" housemothers in men's resi-
dence halls. A resolution will be
presented at the next meeting,
Sept. 26.
The committee, headed by Russ
Jennings, '68, was set up after a
petition to retain housemothers
was presented by Ron Puma, '69.
As an exploratory group, the com-
mittee will also consider the sug-
gestion that faculty associates re-
place the-housemothers, as well as
discussing the rationale behind
the "phasing out" and alterna-
tives other than that of the facul-
ty advisors.

ing included a motion for an ap-
propi'iation of $25 to help with
publicity costs of a speaker pro-

candidate Zolton Ferency.
