For 600 Openings
About 600 jobs are currently!
going begging on campus.
The University is short 300 full-
time non-academic employes and
300 temporary employes, accordingI
to the personnel office.
Current needs include about 1251
full-time clerical workers, 100
service employes and 60 technical-
managerial employes. But officials
say they can't fill their employ-
ment quota of 9,000 full-time and
6,000 temporary employes.
Hardest hit by the manpower
shortage are campus- residence
halls. West Quad has resorted to
hiring high school boys and maids
presently working in the quad for
kitchen work. Several residence
halls are short janitors. As a re-
sult, present janitors are working
overtime ,r "simply extra hard"
according to officials.
Minimum Wage
E. C. Hayes of the University's
Service Enterprises Dept. contends
the shortage is not due to the Uni-
versity's wage scale. He points out
that the campus minimum wage
has been raised from $1.44 to $1.64
in the past year.
'The University has a reputa-
tion for offering fair wages,"
Hayes said.
But, Ben lMoore, president of
University of Michigan Employes
Union Local 1583 contends that
factory workers in the Detroit
area are making 80 to 90 cents an
hour more than the average Uni-
versity non-academic employes in
comparative positions. He says
electricians and plumbers get 20.
to 30 cents an hour more in the
auto factories and janitors get
about 70 cents an hour more.
Moore says that University em-
ployes do not get the cost of living,
wage increases given to automo-
bile workers.
Labor Unions
The University does not recog-
nize labor unions as the bargain-
ing agent of the employes, but
Hayes claims this factor has noti
hurt employment here.
Officials also said that draft
pressures have been a primary
reason behind the shortage of
student employes. More student
scholarships and loans have cut
down the need for many students
to work their way through college.
Officials also point out that
freshmen are counseled against
working in their first year.

Late World News
By The Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS-THE U.N. General Assembly proclaimed
last night the termination of South Africa's mandate over South-
West Africa. It declared that henceforth the giant territory "is a
direct responsibility of the United Nations-"
Culminating a long, bitter debate, the 121-nation assembly
approved by a vote of 114 to 2 with 3 abstentions a resolution
setting out the most drastic U.N. action ever contemplated in an
effort to compel South Africa to give up its rule over the terri-
tory, roughly the size of Texas and New York State combined.
Diplomatic observers said later the U-N. General Assembly
resolution will probably lead to a speed-up of the government's
oft-hinted intentions to withdraw from the U.N.
UNITED NATIONS-THIIRTY-TWO delegations proposed
last night that the 121-nation General Assembly ask for a promise
from the powers with nuclearoweapons that they will not use or
threaten to use them against countries without them.
The 32 put before the assembly's main political committee a
resolution that would also urge all countries "to take all neces-
sary steps conducive to the earliest conclusion of a treaty" to
prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
The resolution would call upon the 17-nation Geneva dis-
armament committee "to give high priority to the question of the
nonproliferation of nuclear weapons" and report shortly to the
assembly on the results.
EAST LANSING-TWO Michigan State University assistant
professors have challenged students who support the war in Viet
Nam-but have not given up their student draft deferments-to
debate next Wednesday, the Associated Press reported.
In an open letter, Bertram E. Garakof and Lauren ;Harris
declared to any such students that "either you are afraid to fight
and prefer to let others less fortunate die for your beliefs, or
you do not believe in the war but will not say so lest your dis-
sidence threaten your selfish interests."
The two, both assistant professors of psychology, said yester-
day they are waiting to hear a "verbal onslaught of outraged

Even though William Steude's Office of Community Relations tried to thin out the motorcycle traffic around campus this year by pro-
hibiting freshmen from riding the two-wheeled vehicles, traffic has been heavy and parking situations like the one pictured above are
not uncommon. But as colder weather approaches, Steude can take consolation in the fact that Old Man Winter's sub-zero tempera-
tures will probably do a lot to rid the streets of the smoke-belching noisemakers by sending them into winter-long hibernation.

Cutler Letter
Sparks SGC
Council To Review
Stand on Student
Organization Rules
Student Government C o u n c i
last night discussed Vice-President
for Student Affairs Richard L.
Cutler's letter concerning revision
of student organization regula-
tions. Council decided to reaffirm
or modify the stand it has taken
after further discussion at the
next meeting.
Of the three major issues set
forth in Cutler's letter-the issues
of faculty sponsorship, secret or
clandestine organizations and due
process-the question of faculty
sponsorship was most extensively
According to Cutler "a princi-
ple justification for any student
organization must be that it is
consistent with the broadly de-
fined educational goals of the
University." Who is to judge
whether or not an organization
meets these requirements, how-
ever, is a basic point of contention
between Cutler and SGC.
'Students Capable'
SGC President Edward Robin-
son; '67, holds that the students
are capable of determining wheth-
er an organization falls within the
broad educational purpose of the
In regard to the issue of secret
organizations council member Fred
G. Smith, '67, stated, "The section
concerning secrecy of membership
lists should remain as we decided.
To say the membership lists are
necessary to prevent clandestine
organizations is a contradiction of
past experience since these lists
were originally required for the
information of graduate schools
and businesses but have never
been kept up to date and have
been essentially unused by the ad-
ministration or anyone else.'.
Council member Bob Smith, '67,
commented, "I feel that Cutler's
reply to the oommittee on refer-
ral's report shows us his frame of
reference is quite different from
ours. I feel that his best point
concerned 'the due process and
application of sanctions' section.
However, I feel that council can
work on an intermediary due pro-
cess proposal to take care of any
problems which might arise until
a thorough study of judicial prob-
lems can be worked out."
Communications Lack
The over-riding problem seems
to be one of a lack of communica-
tions. Council member Dick Wing-
field, '67, said, "We can only ruin
our effectiveness as student rep-
resentatives if we begin reconsid-
eration of the student regulations
with a closed mind. By taking such
a course we would only close our-
selves out of the decision-making
process and break down our rap-
port with the Office of Student
Affairs and the faculty."
Members of SGC will meet with
the Student Relations Subcommit-
tee next week to discuss the fac-
ulty advisor issue. Council mem-
bers are planning an informal
survey of faculty advisors and or-
ganization members in an effort
to sample prevalent opinions on
Cutler's suggested revisions.

Zimmermann explained that the
integrated student data file would
take a much shorter time to com-
plete if the systems committee had
imposed a system of filing without
consulting officials of various col-
leges and university offices as to
their needs. It was felt by the sys-
tems committee that the file would
be more effective 'and reaction to
it much more favorable if those
who would be using it had a voice
in its development.

would not. The project committee

question, and will provide for tech-

officials report. The primary ex-
ceptions are older buildings where
such factors as remodeling or
damage repairs have forced up
costs in these apartments, result-
ing in a slight increase in rents.
These figures are somewhat de-
ceiving. Many of the new apart-
ments built in Ann Arbor's recent
building boom charge the same
rents as older apartments on cam-
pus, but do not offer the same
space. Prices are on a equal level,
but quality is lower.
According to Mrs. Elizabeth

dent-community relations, "there
