By MARK LEVIN
At every July and September
meeting of the Regents, long lists
of appointments and departures
of faculty members are released.
And every July and September,
members of the University com-
munity quickly scan these sheets
to see just how the University has
fared in the pertpetual contest
among the nation's institutions of
higher education to keep estab-
lished professors and to procure
as many new distinguished men as
There is a continual struggle
between the nation's intellectual
bastions to expand and beef up
faculties in a very tight market
of talented professors. There are
just not enough qualified pro-
fessors and instructors to go
around for all the positions which
must be filled.

Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler said that he
received the Committee on Refer-
ral's report on Student Govern-
ment Council's action establishing
new requirements for student or-

lease the report as soon as he has
had time to fully consider it and
that he will send it to SGC, with
comment, as soon as possible.
After receiving the report from
Cutler, SGC will reconsider its
decision and either reaffirm or
qualify its action. Following this,
Cutler will have one week to veto
or sustain SGC's final decision.
No Membership Lists
Cutler announced two weeks ago
that he was "contemplating a
veto" of SGC's action, which would
I abolish the requirement that stu-
dent organizations submit mem-
bership lists to gain recognition.
He asked the Committee, which
serves in an advisory capacity to
him, to sreview the issues and im-
plications involved in SGC's deci-
sion and to present its findings to
According to the revised policy,
each organization will be required
to submit the signatures of at
least two officers instead of full
membership lists in order to reg-

These revisions were made be-
cause of the University's release of I
membership lists to the House Un-
American Activities Committee
last August. The lists were sub-:
poenaed from the University for
use in a HUAC investigation on
anti-Viet Nam war activities.
This i the second time Cutler
has made use of the Committee
on Referral. Last April he sub-
mitted SGC's approval of Pan-
hellenic's fall rush plan to the
committee for review. Cutler :ub-

Therefore, whether the nation's
colleges wish to admit it or not,
there is an intense series of raids
and counterraids, offers and coun-
teroffers. The University with its
vast facul.ty and its great depth
in almost all disciplines is a prime
target for these strategic actions.
This year, University adminis-
trators and department chairmen
feel the University has kept its
balance-expanding on its list of
distinguished scholars and recruit-
ing the finest young talent from
the nation's leading graduate
schools. Although, it lost two as-
sociate deans and one department
chairman, these men appear to
have left for positions of greater
prestige which the University was
unable to offter them at this time.
In addition, the University feels
it has more than compensated for
"We've done our own share of
raiding to conipensate for our
losses," says Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Allan Smith.
"The over all situation is not bad."
In keeping and recruiting new
faculty, the University must com-
pete with an ever-expanding num-
ber of institutions. To meet the
mushrooming college populations,,

created overnight. These new col-

WASHINGTON-CONGRESS gave final approval yesterday
to billion-dollar pillars of President Johnson's "Great Society"
for aid to education and fighting slums and poverty.
The House also passed and sent to the Senate the bill John-
son had sought to help curb inflation by suspending certain
business spending incentives.
WASHINGTON-U.S. OFFICIALS said yesterday military
and economic factors in the Viet Nam war point toward a level-
ing-off of American air operations in Southeast Asia.
In fact, these officials reported the rate of development of
air squadrons to South Viet Nam has decreased in recent months
and the number of air sorties-a sortie is a flight by one plane
against one target-has increased only 10 per cent the last four
'The implication is the United States now has almost enough
pilots and planes to combat even a further buildup of Communist
forces in South Viet Nam. Flexibility of the massive amount of
available firepower makes this possible, officials said.
STUDENT GOVERNMENT COUNCIL has not abandoned
plans to make the outcome of the Nov. 16 draft referendum bind-
ing on the University, said Ruth Bauman, '68, SGC member, at
last night's meeting. She asserted that if students indicate a
desire to have the University reverse its present policy of compil-
ing ranks of male undergraduates for the Selective Service, Coun-
cil would then work to make the University heed the student
In addition, Council heard progress reports on the upcom-
ing 18-year-old vote campaign and on the draft referendum.
Council also appropriated $800 to Graduate Student Council
and $400 to the Writer in Residence Program, which will bring
literary critic Leslie Fiedler to campus for three weeks this year.
THE ANN ARBOR SOCIETY of the Architecture Institute of
America will present a lecture by Anthon Raubitschek from the

TODAY IS THE DEADLINE for filing applications to
take the Selective Service college qualification tests on Nov. 18

WEATHER PERMITTING, four small missiles will be fired
from the University rocket range on the Keweenaw Peninsula

President Johnson and Australian
Prime Minister Harold Holt agreed
today that the allies have barred
a military victory for North Viet

"Fighting could only end when

allies said in a joint statement.

Johnson dwelt on the Viet Nam
issue only once during his chats
with Australians along the streets.
"We're going to succeed - I
don't have any doubt about it,"
he said. "We're going to stick
there until your liberty and your
