Some of the University's alumni
are cruising around the world on
the S.S. President Roosevelt; oth-
ers are planning and executing
donation drives; all are being
made aware of the University's
150th anniversary and the role
they can take in the celebration.

Chief Financial Officer Wilbur

Pierpont to sail on the Mediter-

Academic Affairs Alan F. Smith
to sail from Tokahama to Singa-

in December.
All three vice-presidents are
taking sections of the sesquicen-

time. All are paying their own
fare: the University is not under-
writing their trip expenses.

scheduled to take a shift on the
alumni boat, but he cancelled his
tour, in order to work on the $55

Expansion of
Med Schools
Board of Educationi
Committee Suggests
Guidelines for 'U'
The State Board of Education's
Citizens' Committee on Health
Care Education recommended yes-
terday expanding the medical pro-
grams at the University,Michigan
State, and Wayne State Univer-
MSU's two-year course in its
College of Human Medicine, which
enrolled its first students this fall,
should be expanded to a four-year
course offering the medical doctor
degree, the committee said.
It said further that the Univer-
sity should 'consider expansion of
its capacity by 50 additional first-
year places by 1976, bringing its
total to 260."
The state board will receive the
committee's report at its Nov.
29-30 meeting when it can:
-accept the report and pass It
directly on to the Legislature and
the governing boards of the in-
stitutions involved;
-reject the report; or
-call for further discussion and
Board member Edwin Novak
said last night that further study
was the most probable action.
"This is a recommendation to the
board and not a policy-making
decision," he explained. "It is the

"We also have to consider es-
tablishing a four-year osteopathic
school, as part of the state's med-
ical education picture," Novak
Novak said further study would
not be aimed at establishing prior-
ities or timetables for expansion.'
"If the board accepts the recom-
mendations of the committee, it is
up to the autonomous governing
boards of the schools and the
Legislature to implement them,"
he explained.
The nine-member citizens' com-
mittee, chaired by Michigan Su-
preme Court Justice Otis Smith,
recognized an "overwhelming need
for more physicians in the state of
Michigan will need a minimum
of 500 places for first-year med-
ical students within 10 years. The
state's two four-year schools now
have places for 325.

MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY'S library, trying to halt
an annual $10,000 book loss, plans to install an electronic gadget
to stop anyone walking out with "hot" books.
Metal plates will be put in the books, and charged electrically.
If a book is properly checked out, the librarians will remove the
charge. Anyone attempting to leave with books that still are
"hot" will be detected by two six-foot poles-or "sensing columns'
-beside the door, and the sensing columns automatically will lock
the exit turnstile.
If necessary, a sending "wand" will be used to show exactly
where the charged books are hidden.

PLANS FOR THE, DEVELOPMENT of the State Board of
Education's Master Plan for Highher Education now include
a separate student advisory committee, according to John Porter,
head of the Bureau of Higher Education and assistant state
superintendent of public instruction.
Procedures for setting up the student committee, which
would review preliminary drafts of the plan along with faculty,
administration, professional and other groups, have not yet been
established. -
Porter said study committees on such areas as student finan-
cial aids, capital outlay and fiscal policy, admissions, and enroll-
ment projections, are currently being established to develop
position statements which would be incorporated into the plan,
Porter said preliminary drafts will probably be issued next spring.

THE HUMAN RELATIONS COUNCIL will release a profile of its

DEAN WILLIAM HABER of the literary college is one of 48
national sponsors of a new organization formed to fight radical-
ism of either the left and right.
The organization, Institute for American Democracy, is
headed by Dr. Franklin H. Littell, president of Iowa Wesleyan
College. Dr. Littell was director of religious affairs at the Uni-
versity from 1944 to 1949.

Players' Arthur Miller Festival of Three Plays, as a part of the
University's Sesquicentennial Celebration in 1967.
Both plays met with a storm of controversy in New York
when they premiered at the Lincoln Center theatres, and the
University Players are pleased to bring these compelling . and
timely dramas to the scrutiny of the Ann Arbor audiences. Both
had been scheduled by the Play of the Month series, but had to
be cancelled.
PETITIONS FOR SIX OPEN seats on Joint Judiciary Council
are now available at Rm. 1011 of the Student Activities Bldg.,
Joint Judic Chairman Richard Zuckerman, '67, announced yester-
day. Petitioning will close at 5 p.m. Nov. 29, and interviews are
tentatively scheduled for Nov. 29 and 30. Joint Judic is a student
organization and has primary jurisdiction to try alleged vio-
lations of University rules for student conduct. At present, its
status is being reviewed by the Office of Student Affairs as part
of a broader re-evaluation of non-academic disciplinary proce-

decided to express its philosophies concerning student participa-
tion in the realm of academics through "concrete proposals" sub-
mitted to various administrators.
Joe Litven, '67, said at yesterday's meeting that students
should have an active role in academics and an influence in the
decision-making within the college.

SGC Action
As 'Radical
IEngineering Council
- Suggests Moderation
To Reduce Tension
The Engineering Council last
night qualified their support of
the Student Government Council
action last Monday. The Coun-
cil, representing the 5000 students
in the engineering college, passed
a resolution stating that "students
are in no position to issue ulti-
matums to the administration."
Dave Osmer, '67, president of
the group, stressed that while "the
Council agrees with the purpose
of the SGC - a larger student,
voice-we do not wholeheartedly
agree with the methods used in
achieving this voice."
IcPointing out that the "conserv-
ative, moderate view was not rep-
resented" in the agenda presented
at the all campus teach-in Mon-
day night where the sit-in pro-
posal was passed, the Council
urged SGC to try "a more effec-
tive means of student-administra-
tion communication."
Child's Tantrum
Described by one member of the
Council as a "little child throwing
a tantrum," the SGC action was
criticized by the Council for lack
of any thought about the long-
term effects of the break with
the Office of Student Affairs.
The Council stressed that the
resolutions passed last night were
only suggestions to both the ad-
ministration and the SGC. Their
suggestions included:
! That the actions taken at the
teach-in need not represent the
wishes of the majority of students
at the University, because the body
was not necessarily a representa-
tive cross section of University
I students.
I That the students of the Uni-
versity should have a voice and
be consulted regarding the deci-
sions that affect them, but not
have ultimate power in making

A last-minute walkout by five
mnembers last night prevented Stu-
dent Government Council \from
voting on a motion which would
have advocated a temporary sus-
pension of the demand that the
administration's policy on ranking
be determined by last Wednes-
day's all-campus refereidum. The
'demand was set out at Monday
night's all-campus meeting in Hill
The walkout pushed the Coun-
cil's attendance down to 10 mem-

The motion, proposed by Neil
Hollenshead, '67, would have re-
iterated Monday's request that the
administrtion's controversial sit-in
ban be lifted.

which Sherry Meyer, '69, termed
an "obvious railroad job" not rep-
resentative of either the 26,000
University students not in attend-
ance, or of SGC. Hollenshead's
motion followed this discussion.
The supporters of the motion
shared the feeling that SGC had
renewed its control over the move-
ment and should reassert its claim
as the elected spokesman for the
students by dissociating itself from
the rally's demands.
The proposal asked that, in the
light of the Faculty Assembly's
Monday request that students lift
their demands for a binding ref-
erendum, the whole question of

students, faculty and administra-
tors for future consideration.
Jay Zulauf, '67, supporting the
motion, charged that "The agenda

ering. This Council cannot claim
to represent the campus if the
students want something different

One person indicated t h a t
teaching fellows "should withhold
all grades"' in a grade bank" until
ranking ends.
Several possible administrative
reactions to such a plan were
mentioned. These ranged from
terminating teaching fellow con-
tracts immediately to a refusal to
renew these contracts.
The committee then discussed
the possibility of teaching fellow
participation in the literary col-
lege faculty meeting that will con-
sider pass-fail. Teaching fellows
argued that as graders they should
have a voice in the decision.
It will take a change in the Re-
gents by-laws to give the teaching
fellows a vote in that meeting, but
the faculty could invite the teach-
ing fellows to attend.
Therefore it was suggested that

a letter be sent to the faculty ex-

grading and suggesting that teach-
ing fellows be heard at the meet-
Some teaching fellows argued
that if they participate in the
meeting, they would be acknowl-
edging that the Faculty's decision
would be' binding on them, even
though they had no vote.
This argument met some op-
position, and the group came out
as supporting the idea of sending
a letter. But it was later decided
that the group as a whole would
not send a letter, but that indi-
viduals might.
Some teaching fellows warned
that if a few sent in letters, all
teaching fellows might be invited,
and that if many did not show up,
it would be felt that teaching fel-
lows were apathetic.
