Daily News Analysis
The administration yesterday
seemed to be approaching a posi-
tion which would require student
organizations to guarantee their
continued compliance with "stand-
ards of conduct approved by the
University" and which would pro-
vide more extensive sanctions for
*violations of those standards.
These possibilities reportedly
stem directly from last week's

4,000 seat Hill Aud.
The first play to be presented!
will be "The Royal Hunt of the'
Sun." This will follow the close of
the current festival of the Asso-

WASHINGTON-Congress voted more federal aid for the
nation's schools last night, but the House added an ironclad
prohibition against any federal requirement for busing school
children to overcome racial inbalance.
The House also adopted an amendment that would slow
down efforts by U.S. Education Commissioner Harold Howe II
to speed up the pace of school desegregation in the South.
In quick succession the Senate passed a bill authorizing $6.4
billion and then the House passed one for $3.7 billion-both to
continue for two more years the elementary and secondary
school programs launched last year. A compromise will now be
sought between the two versions.
THE APPOINTMENT of Christopher Carey as managing
editor of the University News Service was announced yesterday
by Vice-President for University Relations Michael Radock.
As head of the News Service, Carey will succeed Fred Mon-

lic information at Cleveland State University.
Carl Brache, now an editor in the News Service, will assume
the post of public information officer for the Medical School,

Of Regulations Issue
By STEPHEN SHAVELL
Student Government Council
President Ed Robinson, '67, last
night expressed concern over the
contemplated veto by Vice-Presi-
dent for Student Affairs Rich-
ard Cutler of recent Council ac-
tion freeing student organizations
from having to file membership
lists in order to obtain recognition.
Cutler has requested the Com-
mittee on Referral, which serves
in an advisory capacity to him,
according to the SGC Plan, to
study the new regulations on stu-
dent organizations and then pre-
sent a report to him.
In a letter notifying Prof. Otto
Graf, vice-chairman of the Com-
mittee on Referral, of' his deci-
sion, Cutler said that aside from
not having enough time to con-
sider the new legislation, "it is
imperative, considering recent
events, that lines of authority and
responsibility.. . not only of stu-
dent organizations, but of individ-
ual students, be subjected to thor-
However, Robinson said it may
not have been necessary to call
the regulations on student organi-
zations into question "just because
of one incident."
The incident was last week's sit-
in staged by Voice political par-
ty at the office of Vice-President
and Chief Financial Officer Wil-
bur K. Pierpont. The protest was
over the presence of plainclothes
policemen at campus events and
the problem of student-adminis-
Mark Simons, '67, administrative
vrP-president of SGC, proposed
that a committee be set up to find
out "exactly what information the
plainclothesmen gather and what
they do with it." The committee
would also check into the' legality
of the University's relationship
with the Ann Arbor police force.
"I see the culmination of the
committee's work in an open ses-
sion during which the facts would
be presented to police, to adminis-
trators, and to students."
However, Simons emphasized,
the committee's report would come
to no conclusions. "No decisions
will be reached, but the facts will
be presented," he said. Details on
the proposed committee will likely
come before Council next week.
Also under discussion at the
meeting was the upcoming all-
campus referendum on the draft.
Council member Ruth- Bauman,
'68, reported that great interest
had been expressed in it from all
quarters and suggested the possi-
bility of a series of similar refer-
endums on college campuses across
