Hatcher's Proposals
Fail To Deter Student
Protest over Policy
A meeting of student leaders
affirmed last night that a sit-in
would occur today "in accordance
with the demands made by the
body at Hill Auditorium last Mon-
day," while another group of stu-
dent leaders at the same meeting
expressed the feeling that "it
would be inadvisable for students
of this University to stage any
formal protest action" at this!
The group, chaired by Student
Government Council President Ed
Robinson, '67, and made up large-
ly of leaders and members of
Young Democrats and VOICE-
EDS, expressed the feeling that
University President H a r I a n
Hatcher's statement to the fac-
ulty senate yesterday had clearly
fallen short of last Mo'nday's de-
mands, and that, 'in accordance
with those demands, a sit-in had
been mandated.
Last Monday's teach-in formal-
ly demanded "that the sit-in ban
0 be suspended" and "that the Uni-
versity administration accept the
recent referendum on ranking as
Robinson said that "as chair-
man of that meeting, it is clear
to me that the demands of that
meeting have not been met."
Ask Again
Robinson said that shortly be-
fore the scheduled noon Diag ral-
ly he would, with a number of
other leaders, go to President
Hatcher's office to inquire wheth-j
er "the sit-in ban has been sus-
pended and the referendum has
been made binding. We will then
report back to the -Diag at noon
and, if the requests of the Hill
meeting have not been complied
with, I will ask those on the Diag
to fulfill the lunch hour sit-in.
Administrative Willingness
A petition signed by the heads
of Graduate Student Council, Pan-
hellemc Association, Inter-Frater-
nity Council, Inter-House Assem-
bly. Universities Activities Center
and SGC members Dick Wingfield,
Robert Smith and Hollensnea
"We . . . feel that the recom-
mendations embodied in President
Hatcher's report . . . indicate a

ministration to engage in mean-

The petition expressed the be-
lief that in light of this, "until

In a meeting last night SGC
unanimously passed a resolution
acknowledging "President's Hat-

toward building a better Univer-
sity community."
After almost five hours of de-
bate SGC statedethat it "desires
to work with the Administration
and faculty on the implementation
of Hatcher's proposed Commis-
sion on Student Participation."

MICHIGAN STATE University wants the state to provide
13 million more dollars next year to handle 23,000 more students
and to raise faculty pay 6 per cent. The MSU trustees also asked
for $250,000 to start a law school, making the total request $57
million to operate the East Lansing campus for the 1967-68 school
year. Last year's request was only $44 million.
The MSU trustees complained that the state currently pro-
vides a far higher level of support to the University and to Wayne
State University. They said to match its level of support to that
of the University, the state would have needed to aid $18,500,000
to MSU's current budget.
THE ANN ARBOR CITY COUNCIL met last night and heard
a report from Guy Larcom, city administrative officer, on an
advisory committee on police-community relations. The purpose
of the board would be to review procedures of the department
as a whole, and not the conduct of the individual officers, and
would be headed by Police Chief Krasne.
In referring to a similar committee set up this summer and
consisting of the city attorney, city administrator, director of
human relations, and the police chief, Larcom said that consider-
able work was done in safely steering the community through
the 'long hot hummer.'
A separate review board, consisting of members of the
police force, and chaired by Chief Krasne, would consider com-
plaints brought against individual officers' conduct. Complaints
would come through the administrator, human relations com-
mittee or Karsne, who would then decide whether further in-
vestigation is necessary.
The city will ask the University to split the cost of a study
on the Huron River Basin Recreational Resources. Richard R.
Wilkinson, assistant professor in architecture and design, will
head the study that is estimated as costing $14,000 and covering a
period of eight to nine months. The area will include camping
and other recreational facilities, and will be in the vicinity of
the residential college.
AN ANNOUNCEMENT OF the site for a proposed 200-mil-
lion-volt atomic particle accelerator, expected sometime in
December, is probably at least two weeks off, according to Rep.
Weston E. Vivian (D-Ann Arbor).
A Northfield Township site is one of six under consideration
for the new Atomic Energy Commission facility.
Vivian said yesterday he had talked to Glenn F. Seaborg,
- chairman of the AEC, last Wednesday but could get no definite'
statement as to whether or not the site selection has been made.
"I have no reason to believe that Ann Arbor is the winner,
but I have every reason to believe that it has not yet lost out,"
Vivian said. A rumor was revived over the weekend that Ann
Arbor had been chosen.
THE NATIONAL AERONAUTICS and Space Administration
announced the awarding of two research contracts to members
of the University faculty. $400,000. was allotted for the -renewal
of a contract for the development of laboratory and flight ex-
perimental techniques directed toward obtaining data to be used
in interpreting satellite radiation measurements.
$75,000 was awarded to Joseph E. Rowe, director of the
Electron Physics Laboratory for a research project.
PHILIP C. JESSUP, THE ONLY American sitting on the In-
ternational Court of Justice at The Hague, will speak at the
University's winter commencement exercises on Saturday, Dec.
17. About 1,800 students will receive degrees at the ceremony in
Hill Aud.
THE UNIVERSITY GILBERT and Sullivan Society is mark-
ing its twentieth year on the Ann Arbor campus this fall with its
production of HMS Pinafore or the Lass That Loved a Sailor on
Nov. 30, Dec. 1,.2, and 3.
Timothy Adams, the musical director, and John Allen, the
dramatics director, have joined together for the first time to bring
the Pinafore to the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
A supporting chorus, plus John Allen as Si Joseph, Charels
Sutherland as Captain Corcoran, Susan Morris as Josephine,
Judy Rieker as Little Buttercup, Lenore Ferver as Cousin Hebe,
Greg Isaacs as Ralph Rackstraw, Robert Schneider as Dick
Deadeye, Jim Karls as Bob Becket, and Randy Solomon as Bill
Bobstay will make up the cast.
HMS Pinafore will be given at a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee
on Dec. 3 as well as the 8 p.m. performances on Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

TENNESSEE WILLIAMS' most controversial play will take
the stage for University Players this week, as they will present
"Camino Real," a modern fantasy, Wednesday through Saturday,
in Trueblood Aud. Curdtain time will be 8 p.m. sharp.
Williams describes his play as being "outside of time in a
place-of no specific locality. If you regard it that way, I suppose
it becomes an elaborate allegory."

Campus Leaders Say
Commissions Do Not
Meet Student Demand
The sit-in and rally scheduled

Robinson said that President
Harlan Hatcher will be invited3
to explain his position as taken
in his statement to the faculty

whether the demands of students
have been adequately met.

In the face of a threatened sit-

today, University President Harlan
Hatcher said yesterday that the
school will "delay the implemen-
tation" of the new sit-in ban and
submit class rankings to the Selec-
tive Service as planned next May.
Hatcher also established three

About 3,000 students voted in a
teach-in last Monday night to
stage a sit-in today unless the
University suspends a tough new
sit-in ban and abolishe class
ranking for the draft.
The Import of Hatcher's re-
marks on, the sit-in ban is uncer-
tain. Administration officials indi-
cate that the University will not
impose the sanctions of the sit-in
ban (new penalties and judicial
procedures) pending completion of
the new sit-in committee's study.
When asked if this is the case,
Hatcher declined comment. But In
his speech to the Faculty Senate,
Hatcher said, "The' general policy
against disruption of the Univer-
sity cannot be abrogated. Disrup-
tive demonstrations are not ac-
ceptable methods for expressing
protest and dissent in a univer-
Hatcher also said, "It is unfor-
tunate that the restatement of this
point (the new sit-in ban) as a
reminder to a few of our over-
zealous students, teaching fellows,
and non-students became entan-
gled with the separate problem of
procedures, and that the commun-
ication of the Vice-President for
Student Affairs came throgh to
University community as a state-
ment of a new policy, supported
by a new set of rules and regula-
tions that had not received ade-
quate discussion.
"This was not the intent, and

Killingsworth said last night he
will "decline to serve on the com-
mittee" because "The Daily and
its staff members play no struc-
tural pole in community decisions
on policy."
Robinson is expected not to ac-
cept Hatcher's invitation and De-
Lamater says he is "thinking the
matter over."
However, seven faculty mn-
bers, deans and administrative of-
ficials invited to join the com-
mittee will all probably serve.
The University Regents who
held a private meeting with SOC
members last week have generally
backed a hard line stand against
the wave of student protest.

Regent Frederic Matthaei (R-

sorry to hear" that President
Hatcher was delaying implemen-
