To Research-
Immediate Project
Includes Intensive
Study of Ranking
University faculty members and
students last night formed an or-
ganization to "scrutinize" Uni-
versity policies and actions. Re-
search, data collection, and pres-
entation of facts to. the public
are all-a part of the overall plan.
The nucleus of the group con-!
sists of Prof. William Livant of
the psychology department, initia-
tor of the idea, and about other
faculty and students.
Methods of study and size of
the project were discussed last
night. Both short and long range
projects will be undertaken, in-
cluding a study of the draft and.
class ranking as one of the short
range ventures. Answers will be
sought -to questions such as: whof
decides to present ranks; who
will decide the fate of the SOC
referendum if it passes; and how'
many students have requested
withholding of grades and ranks?
Research will include contacting
administrators, and gaining ac-
cess to records of the administra- 1
tion. Another important fact they
seek to discover is what informa-
tion the University releases and
to whom?
Topics for longer range studies
include the locating of the true
center of administrative decision-
This group feels it is important
to know which decisions are made
by President Harlan Hatcher di-'
rectly, which by the vice-presi-
dents and which by other officials.,
Studies in the field of aca-
demics are planned. Careful ex-
amination of procedure concerning
appointments, curriculum, , and
general department policy have
been suggested.
Facts about the economic struc-
ture of the University, the main
sources of revenues, 'and the chief!
areas of investment will be com-
Special independent study class-
es dealing with these problems are
planned to be set up in the Honors
Other studies will be organized
outside the classroom structure. A
central location will be established
where data can be co-ordinated'
and made available.

REACH POLITICAL PARTY was officially disbanded at an
executive board meeting last night. Reach president, Jim Feeney,
'68, explained that Reach no longer has a unique role to play on
this campus.
Reach's executive board, in coming to this decision felt that
the "function of Reach has been partially fulfilled, its success in
changing the attitude, intent and structure of Student Govern-
ment Council."
Feeney explained that Reach has disbanded to enable indi-
viduals in the organization to direct their efforts toward the
common goals of SGC through SGC itself.
VOICE, THE LOCAL CHAPTER of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society, last night elected a new chairman and executive
committee. Michael Zweig, a grad student who believes one of
Voice's primary functions is that of an organizing committee"
among radical campus groups, was selected as chairman.
Student power, especially in the area of ranking, was a signifi-
cant issue in the election of executive commitee members: Barry
Bluestone, Eric Chester, Alice Fialkin and Sandy Kelman were
elected. Other new members include Marti Kemnitz, James
Jacobs, Ruth Taube, Skip Taibe and Howard Wachtel.
Kaufman, '67, announced today that the registration for the Fall's
Men's rush is slightly above 1300 men. Despite an improved pre-
rush program to acquaint incoming freshmen with the fraternity
system, the number of men this year is below the 1450 signed up
in last year's fall rush The major reason for this drop is seen to
be the concern with the draft, and the classification of all in-
coming freshmen at 1-A. Despite the decrease in rushees, some
houses have reported gains in the, number of men seen.
HOMECOMING '66 PLANS, announced yesterday by co-
chairmen Walt Heiser, '68, and Judy Greenberg, '68, based on the
theme "FIR§TOFALL" will include Michigan's first Homecoming
queen contest.,
The contest, planned to run throughout October. is designed
to stimulate interest and increase participation in the weekend,
according to the co-chairmen. Both men's and women's housing
units will have the opportunity to nominate any University coed
for queen.
Judging for the contest will be by qualified members of the
major organizations on campus,. administrative officials, and
visiting celebrities. Maureen Anderman, '68 and Howard Wein-
blatt, '68, Co-Chairmen of the Homecoming special events com-
mittee said. "By having competent judges from student organiza-
tions. administration, and the University community, we are
certain this event will be a success."

committee plans to take steps to

PA 379 Is

But U' May Decide To,
Comply with Statute,
Continue Court Fight
The Michigan AFL-CIO will vote
tomorrow on a resolution seeking'
Wn AFL-CO boycott of University
ducational services as punishment
for the Univrsity's opposition to
PA 379 a state law requiring pub-
fict employers to bargain -collec-
ively with their employes.
But there were indications last
nightthat the administration may
ecide 'to comply with PA 379's
provisions even though continuing
ts court fight against it.
The resolution asks that the
State AFL-CIO "give considera-
tion" to a boycott and adds that,
if the body finally "decides to by-
pass . . . the University . . . it
then formally ask the Board of
Governors of Wayne State Uni-
versity . . to establish immed-
Lately an independent institute of
labor and industrial relations."
The joint University-Wayne In-
stitute of Labor and Industrial Re-
lations (ILIR) is the major Uni-
versity facility which would be
affected by any labor boycott.
Wayne State is not opposing PA
379 in court, and is complying
with its provisions.

tain PA 379.infringes *n the Unil-

final decision on thisbwould have
to be made by the Regents.
The TLIR executive board re-
sponded to reports of the AFL-CIO
resolution with a statement, op-
posing "precipitate" action:. The
board's views are being communi-
cated to the AFL-CIO by letter.
The 'letter says the University
has not yet failed to comply with
PA 379 noting that the University
has complied with recent hearings
setting bargaining-unit lines and
other procedures under the law.
Sources close to the ILIR last
night expressed concern that, if
it occurred, a labor boycott "could
ruin the program of the insti-
tute, fo rce the withdrawal of
Wayne from our program and re-
distribute our labor programs to
other schools."

cites the Regents for showing
"open defiance :of the law," for
using "public funds to employ pri-

law and for refusal to "aoknowl-
