Regents Pass
New Student
Board Plan
Advisory Unit To
Consult with,Officials
In Planning 'U' Policy
Hailing their action as a pro-
gressive step in the improvement
of student - University relations,
the Regents unanimously author-
ized the establishment of student
advisory boards to the President
and Vice-Presidents at their meet-
ing yesterday.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler termed the
importance of the boards as an
"important step for trustworthy
communication between students
and the executive officers."
In response to a question by
Regent Carl Brablec on whether
the right to demonstrate would be
curbed by the new boards, Cutler
said that "some students who are
members of advisory groups may
understand administrators prob-
lems better and thus become less
than satisfactory representatives
of militant groups."
He said in reply to a question
from Regent Irene Murphy that
he couldn't say whether communi-
cation between students and the
administration concerning the sit-
in three weeks ago in Vice-Presi-
dent and Chief Financial Officer
Wilbur Pierpont's office would
have been more effective if the
advisory boards had been in op-
Cutler said, "There is no guar-
antee that these channels would
have been used since those chan-
nels that were open were not used
by the students."
Voice political party late Sep-
tember staged an all night sit-in
in Pierpont's office protesting the
University's policy of asking Ann

Regular Meetings
As approved by the Regents, the
plan calls for student advisory
boards consisting of five to eight
student members, who will meet
with the President and each of the
executive officers.
Cutler, who presented the pro-
posal to the Regents, asserted that
it "is desirable that responsible
student groups should be involved
in consultation with the Univer-
Students 'Perceptive'
President Harlan Hatcher noted
that in his many conferences with
students in the past months he
has found students "perceptive
and mature in understanding what
the proposal is about."
Approval of the boards marks
the culmination of work begun last
January when students proposed
the idea to Hatcher.
In May Neill Hollenshead, '67,
SGC member, and Marvin Freed-
man, '67, presented the original
proposal before a special meeting
with Hatcher and the executive
After that, Hollenshead, Freed-
man, John DeLamater, Grad, pres-
ident of GSC, and Ed Robinson,
'67, SGC president, met several
times with Cutler to revise the
original plan. Cutler then sent the
final plan to the other vice-presi-
Selected by Committee
Members of the boards will be
selected by a joint Student Gov-
ernment Council - Graduate Stu-
dent Council committee through a

petitioning process. Any student
will be eligible for membership on
the committees. The advisory com-
mittee to the President will be
composed of the chairmen of all
the other boards plus the presi-
dents of SGC and GSC.
Hatcher commented that the
boards would be important for
producing feedback to student
thinking because of the close tie
to recognized student organiza-

ABERFAN, WALES G)-Thousands of rescue workers dug
through tons of oozing coal siag today with a threat of a new
avalanche hanging over them.
The remains of the 800-foot man-made mountain of coal
waste that smashed a school and at least 14 homes yesterday
was still moving. If it came down, the diggers would be directly
in its path.
Eighty-five bodies, 77 those of children, had been recovered
and officials feared the death toll would reach 200.

half a dozen anti-Viet Nam demonstrators lay down in the

A flying squad of Sydney police moved quickly into action
and dragged the demonstrators off the road.
WASHINGTON (MP-Congress sent to President Johnson
yesterday a $3.97-billion authorization for new funds over the
next three years for the nation's colleges and universities:
The Senate completed action on the compromise measure
by voice vote shortly after the House passed it 222 to 13.
The bill would continue for three more years, at increased
spending levels, the present program of grants and loans to help
the colleges keep up with over-growing enrollments.
It is a compromise between a $4.4.-billon authorization bill
passed earlier by the Senate and a $2.9-billion measure passed
by the House. Its three-year costs are estimated to be about $700
million more than the administration requested.
The bill would authorize:
$475 million this year, $728 million in fiscal 1968, and $936,
million in 1969 for grants to build classrooms, laboratories and
libraries for undergraduates. Junior coleges would get ?2 per
cent of the money in 1967 and an additional 1 per cent each of
the next two years for construction of graduate facilities.

MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY decided Thursday to set
up a second "college within a college" on its East Lansing campus
-this one to offer a liberal program in the sciences.
In an effort to combine advantages of a small college with the
facilities of a large university, MSU opened a small liberal arts
college within its campus in 1965. It is known as Justin Morrill
College and its enrollment currently includes about 800 of MSU's
38,000 students.
The new school will open in the fall of 1967 with a small
class of freshmen.

Adopt Joint
Request For
State Funds
Statewide Computer

The University's Board of Re-
gents yesterday joined with Mich-
igan State and Wayne State in a
request for state funds to finance
a state-wide computer network,
which will be represented at the
University by the' Center for Re-
search on Learning and Teaching.
The joint plan, asking for a
$1,185,760 appropriation, is the
first time the state's three large
universities have combined efforts
on a financial request.

Wictory' Floats for Parade


A Chevy station wagon, pulled
up in the middle of State Street,
was blocking traffic.
The light had changed green
half a minute earlier, but the car
wasn't moving. It was discharging
its load of little kids and mothers,
nine and two respectively. And as
one of the smaller ones scurried
to the curb she was yelling
"Parade! Parade! Gonna be a
PARADE!" She was right.
In the name of school spirit,

wife was present too, although she
didn't get her own car.
And it's sad but true that the
Playboy bunnies look a lot more

Floats stuffed with toilet paper
streamed through the streets;
gophers mechanically moved their
paws and frisky cheerleaders

of the Administration Building

ed in a feline position atop the
oak trees across from the Union.

while it pursues its challenge of
the law in the courts.
The Regents scuttled the mo-
tion, offered by Carl Brablec, by
a voice vote. Democrats Brablec,
Irene Murphy and Allan Sorenson'
opposed tabling the motion, while
Republicans Alvin Bentley, Robert
Briggs, William Cudlip, Paul Goebel'
and Frederick Matthaei favored
tabling it.
Brablec, a school superintendent
who has bargained with teachers'
unions, said in supporting his mo-
tion that "collective bargaining in
public institutions is generally
accepted. I can testify from per-
sonal experience that it has been
abrasive and inconvenient at
times. But this is a processwhich
should not be denied University
The University has opposed the
law, Public Act 379, in court as an
unconstitutional infringement on
its autonomy. It has, however, as
yet taken no formal position on
collective bargaining as such and
has thus far complied with PA 379
as it continues its court fight.
Five unions are waiting for elec-
tions, to be conducted by the State
Labor Mediation Board, to certify
them as representatives of Uni-
versity employes.
