New Regents avor Student okesman to


The University's two Regents-
elect last night gave qualified en-

dent representative to the Re-
Mrs. Trudy Heubner and Rob-
ert Brown, both Republicans, said:
in separate interviews that stu-

Mrs. Heubner said that having a
student representative entitled to
appear before the Regents to dis-
cuss matters of student concern
is "only fair-the democratic way!
of the University."
Wq She added, however, that such
a representative could not be a
member of the board as such, but
would simply appear before them.

Both Regents-elect said the se-:
lection of a successor to President
Hatcher is a top priority decision.
Mrs. Heubner said she feels the
University should have a "fairly
young" man with "a lot of ideas
and a lot of courage.''
She added that the next presi-
dent "must have a reputation as
a scholar and should be a diplo-
mat-even a salesman."
She continued, "There are so
many college presidents I know
who are good men but are on a
single track. Ours should be a man
who has experience in many fields

who can see how everything fits in
at the University."
Brown commented that "a uni-
versity of this size needs a man of
stature among university adminis-
trators. He's got to be a man with
broad vision, someone who is at-
tuned to the modern concept of
college life and college programs."
Mrs. Heubner said she also hopes
to concentrate on "upgrading sci-
ence and research at the Univer-
sity," adding, "that's my 'crusade'."
The University "is losing its
standing among excellent schools,
on the east and west coast in this
field," she commented.
The University "should have en-
dowed chairs here and generally
elevate science and research - we
have to get new scientists who can
bring new jobs to Michigan and

Brown and Mrs. Heubner de-
feated incumbent Democrat Irene
Murphy and fellow-Democrat John
J. Collins by relatively comfortable
margins. The defeat of Mrs. Mur-
phy and the expiration of retiring
Democratic Regent Carl Brablee'sa
term leaves only one Democrat, Al-
lan R. Sorenson, as a Regent.
In other education board con-
tests, Republicans James O'Neil
and Leroy Augenstein defeated
Democratic incumbents Donald M.

D. Thurber and Dr. Leon Fill for
the State Board of Education, cre-
ating a Democratic-Republican
balance of 6-2.
Victors for Michigan State Uni-
versity Board of Trustees were Re-
publicans Kenneth Thompson and
incumbent Frank Merriman. They
defeated incumbent Warren Huff
and Nathan Conyers, both Demo-
crats. The MSU board now has a

two Democrats seeking election.

bers take office Jan. 1, 1967.






cerning the sale of liquor in the "dry island" area around central
campus will not eliminate that area. It will only permit the sale
of packaged liquor by establishments other than drug stores.
The amendment corrects a state law requiring all drug stores to
have a registered pharmacist on duty. Since the sale of liquor
was limited to only drug stores, this law prevented those stores
without pharmacists from retaining or getting liquor licenses.
The amendment, however, still does not allow the sale of liquor
for consumption on the premises.

jor study concerned with public opinion and voting behavior
based on Tuesday's election.
The 1966 election study by the Survey Research Center of
the Institute for Social Research is the ninth in a series of
presidlential and congressional elections studies initiated in 1948.
The Survey Research Center maintains a staff of trained in-
terviewers in 76 areas, located in 36 states and in Washington,
D.C. These interviewers will contact about 1600 respondents,
chosen scientifically to provide an accurate cross-section of the,
opinions of the American people.
Results of the interviews, never identified with any indi-
vidual or address, will be coded, analyzed, and published in a
statistical report. The report will be used by government offi-
cials, businessmen, economists, and educators.

SEVERAL CHANGES IN THE administrative personnel of
the Office of the Registrar were recently announced by Edward
G. Groesbeck, University registrar.
In the newly created post of assistant registrar is Harris D.
Olson, director of the statistical service in the office since 1958.
Tom Turner, supervisor of the statistical service, succeeds Olson
as its director.
Don Beach will replace director of registration Douglas
Woolley who has been named the first registrar at Washtenaw
Community College. John Stewart will succeed Beach as super-
visor of advanced classification.
Herbert Sigman has been named to succeed E. Jack
Petoskey as director of orientation. Petoskey is the dean-elect
of Alpena Community College. Sigman was formerly assistant
to the dean in freshman and sophomore counseling, in the Col-
lege of Literature, Science and the Arts.
Larry Katz will replace Thomas Clark as administrative
assistant to the registrar in charge of Selective Service counsel-
ing and student certification. Clark will become the new super-
visor of records.

Reagan proposed during his
campaign to investigate the
Berkeley campus thoroughly. The
governor-elect of California in-
dicated that he wanted the Berke-
ley regents to ask former CIA di-
rector John McCone to undertake
such an investigation.
McCone, according to a Berkeley
official, said he would not pursue
the investigation without this re-
gent request. The source said
further that the regents would un-
doubtedly defeat Regan's proposal

formalized Peace Party, or other

open question.
"We don't want to jell our
ideas prematurely or become a
small 'in-group' or . partisan
third party. We want to leave
the door open for everyone con-

Mrs. Boulding has not set her

mester she'll be teaching a sec-

For Appeal
Rules Do Not Require
Membership Lists,
Mandatory Advisers
Student Government Council
last "night approved a slightly re-
vised set of regulations for gov-
erning student organizations.
The new rules are essentially
the same as those passed a month
ago, except that they clearly spell
out procedures for appeal when
disciplinary action is taken against
an organization. They reassert
SGC's original position that stu-
dent organizations should not be
required to maintain either fac-
ulty advisors or membership lists,
in spite of a letter from Vice-
President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler which criticized
council's failure to provide for
mandatory faculty advisers and
raised questions about the ad-
visability of permitting "clande-
stine organizations" on campus.
Prior to writing his letter, Cutler
had reviewed the original version
of the regulations, announced that
he might veto it, and asked the
Committee on 'Deferral to prepare
a report on. SGC's action. The
committee, which serves Cutler in
an advisory capacity, submitted
its report to him two weeks ago;
he then passed it on to Council,
along with -the letter expressing
his own views.
Both the Committee on Referral
report and Cutler's letter were
critical of SGC's failure to make
faculty sponsors mandatory and
to provide procedues to insure duie
process in .disciplinary cases.
Cutler's letter, but not the com-
mittee report, also included the
reservations about "clandestine or-
ganizations." In a split vote, the
committee recommended that Cut-
ler not veto the regulations, and
the vice-president simply urged
council to reconsider its action in
light of his letter.
Cutler appeared at last night's
meeting before the vote was tak-
en and answered SGC members'
questions about student organiza-
tion rules and several other issues.
At the same time as it passed
the new regulations, SGC adopted
a motion explaining the rationale
for its action.
The letter states that nember-
ship lists are inadvisable because
of procedural problems they would
pose for the Office of Student Af-
fairs and the necessity of "pro-
tecting the individual political
rights of organization members."
Instead of listsrSGC'c new rules
require organizations to submit
the names of two officers-enough,
according to the letter, to prevent
"clandestine organizations" and
to facilitate communcations be-
tween SGC'and the organizations.
