Investment Firm

o id Small Business in State

A group of Michigan business-
.men, politicians and scientists
M have formed a company designed
to ease the burdens of small busi-
ness corporations, especially those
with a scientific outlook.
Prof. Paul McCracken of the
school of business administration,
a member of the board of this new,
organization, Michigan Capital
and Service Inc., says "the basic
objective of the company is to try.

Although 45 per cent of the

As Major Cause of Sit-in


THE FAILJURE of the University Payroll Department to issue
paychecks to as many as 40 per cent of the University's teaching
fellows' yesterday may lead to some organized protest next week.
Rumors have been circulating that the teaching fellows who
were not paid will hold a meeting Monday to plan some form of
action demonstrating their dissatisfaction with the Administra-
tion. Several instructors contemplated walking out of their
classes next week to demonstrate their situation.
The Payroll Department is evidently making "a maximum
effort" to get these faculty checks out, according to another
teaching fellow who has not been paid. Most staff members of the
University were paid yesterday, the last day in September.
LLOYD WENDT, editor of Chicago's American, told members
of' the University Press Club yesterday that American cities are
facing a serious crisis in law order. Speaking to the Press Club's
49th annual meeting, Wendt criticized recent Supreme Court rul-
ings as making the job of modern law enforcement more difficult.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL this week approved the
final form for the much-debated draft referendum, dividing the
remainder of the issue into two separate divisions.
The first subdivision offers three separate choices to the
voter. He may opt from the following: 1) all able bodied males
must serve; 2) only some able bodied males randomly selected by
lottery must serve; or 3) only some able bodied males chosen on
a selective basis must serve. The third choice also asks the student
to check what 'reasons he deems criteria for deferment.
The second question concerns type of duty, with two choices
presented: 1) all those chosen should serve in the armed forces;
or 2) all chosen should have alternative governmentally-approved
types of service open to them.

to discuss the role of police on

begun Thursday night to bring
about changes in the University's

University President Harlan H.

later in the day.
Other Vice-Presidents
The meeting Pierpont agreed to

Edward Robinson, '67, President

played a major role in arranging
the meeting.
Robinson said the meeting will
be sponsored by the office of the
vice-president for student affairs,

In addition to its loan program,
the federal government grants
funds for study under the 1965
Higher Education Act. In its first
year of operation, the Education-
al Opportunity Grants gave the
University $194,200 for 340 differ-
ent cases.
Patterned after the University's
own grant program, the EOG
searches out the "culturally dis-

Efforts Blocked
For about a week, Voice says,

their attempts to speak with Pier-
pont were squelched. Finally, on
Thursday, Voice members enter-
ed Pierpont's outer office where
he told them that he could not
deny that the decision to bring
police onto the campus was his.
He added only that Voice could
not speak to him about it, but
should make their . grievances
known to Cutler. He then left.
The Voice members decided to
remain in Pierpont's office until
they were granted the right to
discuss the matter with him. They
see the sit-in as the result of the
demand of a campus organization
to discuss a policy decision with
the person who, in effect, makes it.

Richard Cutler, vice-presidentI
for student affairs, says that the
detectives are present on these
occasions to protect the Univer-
sity community from the possibil-
ity of violence.
Voice members retort that plain-
clothesmnen have little chance ofI
stopping a disturbance. They as-
sert that plainclothes police only
intimidate and harass students,
'and that only uniformed police
can prevent riots and other dan-
gerous incidents.
