Honors Committee .
Passes Resolution
To Initiate Project
The Honors Council Steering
Committee has drawn up a plan
for a student exchange program
between the University and other
major universities throughout the
nation, according to Si Benninga,
'69, chairman of the steering com-
A resolution endorsing the pro-
posal was passed by the steering

rnext be presented to the Honors
Council, where prospects for its
approval are good, Benninga in-
dicated. It would then be intro-
duced next spring at a meeting
of the National Collegiate Honors
Council, for final consideration.;
The National Collegiate Honors
Council, a body which provides
honors program information to
2olleges all over the country, was
formed last week in Lawrence,
Kansas. Prof. Otto Graf, director
of the University's honors pro-
gram, attended the meeting and
asked several council members
about the' plan. He reported an
enthusiastic reaction.
January, 1968
Benninga said there is a possi-
bility the program could go into
effect by January, 1968.
The exchange proposal was
drawn up primarily by Sherry
Lucas, '69, Dane Harwood, '69, and
Steve Muchnik, '67, members of
the steering committee.
The purpose of the exchange
program is to provide a diverse ex-
perience in academic, geographic,
and social factors. The proposal
establishes a student-faculty com-
mittee to interview applicants and
inspect their qualifications for the
All students are eligible for the
program, although it will be ad-
ministered biy the Honors Council.
Credit Transferred
While the exchange students
will be attending the other col-
leges, they will still be considered
as enrolled in the school from
which they came. Tuition will be
the same as it would have been
for the home institution. Credits
will be transferred, but not grades.
The exchange student will meet
his own expenses, but scholarships
at one school may be used while
attending the other.
4 No courses will be closed to ex-
change students, either at their
exchange university or at their
home university on their return.
This is to enable the students to
have the best possible selection
of courses.
Each participating university
will provide a portfolio of its best
courses for prospective exchange
The program may run on either
a semester or a yearly basis, de-
pending on the student and the!
university semestertdivisions. This
will enable schools on a quarter,
trimester, or semester calendar to
coordinate their efforts.

FIVE COLLEGE STUDENTS, including Anita Susan Broth-
man of the University, have been granted the right to appeal
misdemeanor convictions levied in connection to antiwar activi-
ties, the State. Court of Appeals asserted yesterday. A conflict
existed in that the five (the four in addition to Miss Brothman
are MSU students) had original municipal court convictions up-

Miss Brothman had been originally convicted in Ann Arbor

funds for scientific activities through the 1965-66 fiscal year.
The $58,805,000 received by the University was second only to
the $59,601,000 granted by the government to Massachusetts In-

national list, having received $14,415,000 in federal funds.

Gov. George Romney and Sen. Robert Griffin, as well as at their
Democratic challengers, Zolton Ferency and G. Mennen Williams.
All four have gone on record supporting the amendment.
