Hatcher Has
Private Talk
With SGC
*President Compares-
Student Action Here
To Left Wing Pattern
University P r e s i d e n t Harlan
Hatcher told Student Government
Council members yesterday that
M the movement for greater student
participation in campus decision
making is part of a left-wing pat-
tern, sources reported.
Hatcher, in response to a query
from an SGC member on how he
views the student government in
political terms,said "the move-
*ment follows the SDS (Students
for a Democratic Society) pro-
gram and plan of action which has
been clearly outlined, campus by
campus. There is no conspiracy
but the pattern is the same
throughout the country."
"The national program is to
concentrate on large issues such
as Viet Nam and the draft which
will unify a large number of peo-
ple,' Hatcher said.
Robinson Walks Out
SGC members met with Hatcher
in a three-hour meeting after SGC
President Ed Robinson, '67, walk-
* ed out of the session.
Hatcher had demanded that all
present who were not SGC mem-
bers to leave the room.
Robinson said he could not re-
main at the session because "it
was a closed meeting, a meeting
at which interested faculty and
* students were not allowed to
"Many of the problems on this
campus have been caused by mis-
understanding, and closed meet-
ings b r e e d misunderstanding,"
Robinson said in a statement. "If
things are to improve here, closed
M meetings must end. Today I took
a difficult step and decided to end
my participation in closed meet-
Hatcher made it clear that he
viewed teach-ins and mass meet-
ings as an inappropriate means of
reaching democratic decisions.
* Appalled by Harshness
"Rational decisions cannot be
made in that kind of atmosphere,"
he said. He added that he was
"appalled at the harsh things that
were said" at theteach-in Nov.
21, which he heard via a radio
" Hatcher requested the SGC
members t submit 12 names of
students who would serve as rep-
resentatives on the presidential
commission he created Monday to
deal with the overall question of
the student role in decision-mak-
ing. From these 12 names, Hatch-
* er said he would appoint four stu-
dents to the commission.
After some debate with SGC
members, Hatcher agreed to allow
SGC to determine which four stu-
dents would serve on the com-
mission. The commission will also
consist of four faculty members
" and four administrators. All three
groups will have an equal vote.
'U' Must Compile Ranks
But Hatcher reiterated that the
University must compile class
rankings for the Selective Service
system "because we have a com-
mitment to more than 6,000 stu-
dents who asked that this be
done." The findings of the com-
mission on the ranking question
would apply in May, 1968, when
the University must again decide
whether to compile class ranks.
Some SGC members were dis-
appointed by the meeting.
* "I feel that the gap between
the students and the administra-
tion is just as wide as it was be-
fore the meeting," Bruce Kahn,

'68, said.
Council member Neill Hollen-
shead, '67, expressed dismay at
Hatcher's identification of the
t student movement here with the
SDS national program.

By The Associated Press
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. ()-U Thant agreed last night to
be drafted for a new five-year term as U.N. secretary-general.
Security Council sources said the council will meet this morning
to approve a recommendation that he be given a new term, and
the 121-nation General Assembly will convene later in the day
to ratify the council's recommendation.
EAST LANSING ()-Michigan State University's chief
Academic officer says it is time for the 38,000-student school to
decide whether it can afford to keep up its rapid growth pace of
the last 15 years. "We're all concerned that unless substantial
new resources are made available, quality could decline in the
future," Howard Neville, MSU provost, told a newsman Thursday.
Enrollment has more than doubled in the last 15 years.
In their budget request for 1967-68, MSU trustees said the
University of Michigan and Wayne State University receive
substantially more than MSU in dollars per fiscal year equated
"This is of great concern," Neville said. "We feel we have
much catching up to do in the amount of resources available."
His own view, he said, is that based on what resources are in
sight, enrollment probably should be stabilized at 40,000 to 42,000
by 1970.

resolution affirming "the role of reasoned and responsible activity
by all members of the University community in the resolution of
University problems."
The resolution deplored "the use of disruptive tactics which
infringe on the freedom of individuals within the academic com-
munity"' and supported "constructive steps such as proposed by
President Hatcher in his statement to the Faculty Senate" last
The resolution was passed by a near-unanimous vote.
HARVARD UNIVERSITY is considering whether or not to
surrender membership lists of student anti-war groups to the
government. The school is responding to an American Civil
Liberties Union letter sent to 900 university presidents on Nov. 13.
The ACLU letter was prompted by the surrender of member-
ship lists by the University and the University of California at
Berkeley when they were subpoenaed by HUAC last August.
The letter urges non-compliance with such government sub-
At present Harvard does not require organizations which are
under political pressure, like SDS, to file membership lists with
the administration. However, they must allow the College to
inspect the lists periodically to control the number of non-
Harvard persons in Harvard-chartered organizations. SDS does
file a list of officers, which could be subpoenaed.
A UNIVERSITY medical student was announced Tuesday as
the first-place winner in the Norman A. Welch, M.D., Medical
Ethics Essay Contest sponsored by the Judicial Council of the
American Medical Association. "On the Profession of Medicine,"
was the title of the winning essay submitted by Glen W. Geel-
hoed, Ann Arbor, a third-year medical student. Elmer G. Shelley,
M.D., North East, Pa.. chairman of the Judicial Council, made
the announcement and presented Geelhoed with a check for
$500.00 Tuesday afternoon during the bi-annual session of AMA's
House of Delegates here.
REV. DAVID C. BAYNE, S.J. will present a special course on
"Conscience, Obligation and the Law" next semester at the Uni-
versity Law School.
Father Bayne, who will serve as a visiting professor, is an
instructor in law at St. Louis University and former dean of the
University of Detroit School of Law. He has written extensively on
the relationship of morality to law.
The seminar, limited to 15 students, will explore the nature
of the obligations of civil law. A book by him on the moral
binding power of the civil law has recently been published by
Loyola University Press.
The Jesuit priest will also teach two sections of corporation
law as well as the seminar.
