600 Present
At Largest
Meeting Ever
Pass-Fail Grading,
Class Ranking. Topics
Of 'Vigorous Debate'
The faculty of the literary co-
lege yesterday voted 305-115
against a resolution proposing that
LSA faculty members be permit-
ted to withhold grades while the
University continues to compile
class ranks.
The vote was taken at what
Dean William Haber of the liter-
ary college, termed the "largest
faculty meeting in the history of
the college."mApproximately 600
faculty members attended the
The proposal, introduced by
Prof. Herbert C. Kelman of the
psychology department, a s k e d

DEAN WILLIAM HABER of the literary college called a
meeting of teaching fellows yesterday. He reportedly asked each
department to either choose or elect on representative among the
teaching fellows.
Haber said he called the meeting in order to informally discuss
means of improving copmunications with the teaching fellows.
One course indicated that the meeting's agenda was to include
an informal discussion of grading as well.
The teaching fellows were reportedly angry because there
had been no uniform selection of representatives, the meeting
was called on very short notice and Haber chaired the meeting
and prepared the agenda rather than one of the teaching fellows.
One representative said he did not "trust an administration
which ignores us" while another stated that "we are the faculty,"
pointing out that in the psychology department alone 82 per cent
of the credit hours are taught by teaching fellows.
It was also pointed out that in the English department the
teaching fellows voted three to one against class rank, while in
the political science department the vote was two to one against
class rank and that the majority of students in their classes
voted to 'have their grades withheld. The teaching fellows felt
that grading should be left up to the individual teacher although
the representative from political science said that the entire fac-
ulty of the literary college should determine the grading policy
of the college.
Dean James Robertson reportedly called the Registrar's Of-
4 fice and was told that if no grade is sent in to its office the in-
dividual will receive no credit for the course and the individual
will merely receive a "Not Reported" on his transcript. The grade
will not result in an "E" or failure as was originally presumed.
Haber cancelled the meeting of all teaching fellows originally
scheduled for today. One teaching fellow said the group wanted
to have the meeting but did not want Haber to chair the meeting
or prepare the agenda. Haber said that whatever he had planned
or done at a meeting today would have been misinterpreted and
he therefore felt that it would be better to hold a meeting later
when the present tension died down.

AN INFORMATION MEETING for all students interested in
working for the government next summer on the Washington
Summer Intern Program will be held at 4:00 today in Room 3-R-S
of the Union.
Undergraduates should note -that Dec. 9 is the application
deadline for the Office and Science Assistant Test to be given
Jan. 7.
Seniors and graduate students should apply to take the
Federal Service Entrance Exam. The deadline for these tests is
Dec. 21 for the Jan. 21 exam. .
Students are encouraged to take the tests on the earliest pos-
sible date in view of the early end of the spring semester.
nounced a ch1ange in registration dates for next semester.
Registration will take place Tuesday, January 3rd through
Thursday, January 5th. The first day of classes will be Friday,
January 6th, one day later than originally scheduled.
The reason for the schedule change is that Monday, January
2nd, the original opening day for registration, is a legal holiday
since New Year's Day falls on a Sunday this year.

-Professors who disagree with

the Selective Service by compiling
class rank be allowed to grade
their students on a pass-fail basis
if they so desire;
-Professors who do so will give
a one paragraph evaluation of stu-
dents to whom they do not 'give
grades; and
-Professors who do this will be
required to submit the grades of
students who request them.
Faculty Pledge
These proposals are presently
embodied in a pledge which has
been signed by approximately 35
professors. Those who signed in-
dicated that they will withhold
grades regardless of the faculty
vote yesterday.
At the beginning of the meeting
Prof. Robert Sklar of the history
department proposed a rule pro-
hibiting non-faculty m e m b e r s
from attending the meeting be
waived but this was defeated. The
faculty subsequently voted to al-
low two student representatives,
Peter Steinberger, Grad. and Barry
Bluestone, Grad., to akea state-
ment before the faculty and an-
swer any questions the ficulty
might have. The two students then
left the meeting.
'Vigorous Debate'
After Kelman introduced his
prorposal, Haber said "the most
vigorous debate I've seen in my
experience as Dean" followed.
Haberaddedsthat the discussion
was, at times, "emotion-laden,"
Prof. Alexander Eckstein of the
eoconomics department opposed
Kelman's motion on several
grounds. He said that although he
was against class ranking he could
not withhold grades on the basis
of this opposition because "grades
were not instituted because of
class ranking and should not be
abolished on the basis ofnclass
ranking. Class ranking should be
attacked directly. Grades should
only be abolished on educational
Reasons of Consoience
Kelman, in a statement Intro-
ducing his proposal, argued that
"for reasons of conscience" he,
and others who have pledged to
withhold grades, will not "assign
letter grades to their male under-
graduates as long as these grades
are used to compute class rank for
submission to the Selective Service
He said that the-group feit that
the action withholding grades "is
the only way available to us at the
moment to express our conscien-
tious concern about the role of the
University in the Selective Service
Eckstein argued that allowing
each individual conscience to dic-
tate the procedures of the Uni-
versity "sets up a dangerous pro-
cedure." He added that it "opens
the way for a practice detrimental
to the University."

Selective Service Specialist Advocates
Limiting Draft Calls to 18-Year-Olds

btudents at two major univers- e
ities are being given the oppor-c
tunity to play a more active rolei
in university decision making.I
Members of the student bodies of
Northwestern University and thec
university of Minnesota are par-r
ticipating in the selection of im-
portant university officials.
Northwestern's charman of a
faculty committee selecting a new
Dean of Students, Donald Camp-
bell, has invited undergraduates,
graduates, transfer students and
faculty members to offer recom-
mendations of people considered
suitable for the position.
The final decision rests with the'
Board of Trustees.
They are expected to act on the
advice of the administration, 1
which in turn will probably ap-r
prove the candidate offered by the
faculty committee.r
The role of students at the
University of Minnesota is more
formal. Three students will parti-i
cipate on the alumni advisory
committee selecting a successor to
President 0. Meredith Wilson whof
will leave in July, 1967. These stu-i
dents along with nine other mem-c
bers of the advisory body will 1
present their recommendations to'
the Board of Regents, which has
the power to decide who will be
the future president. A faculty
committee also offers suggestions,
to the Regents.
'U' Serves as Model
This model for student partici-

on the advisory committee be sen-
iors or grads. Therefore, although
members of the various classes
petitioned for positions on this
committee, the student govern-
ment screened them, selecting a
qualified grad, a law student and
a senior.

The Ann Arbor City Council
passed an ordinance regulating
motorcycles at last night's Coun-
cil meeting and tabled an ordi-
nance on motorcycle rentals. The
ordinance is essentially a dupli-
cation of the new state law re-
garding motorcycles which will go
into effect 90 days after the Leg-
islature's adjournment.
The ordinance will go into ef-
fect 10 days after. the date of
its legal publication, which ac-
cording to City Attorney Jacob F.
Fahrner, Jr. should be around De-
cember 2Gth, the last day of fin-
The ordinance covers several as-
pects of motorcycle operation, in-
-All passengers must wear a
safety helmet;
-All cycles shall be equipped
with lights that are onerated with

drive in the center of the lane;
-Cyclists shall not ride more
than two abreast in any lane;
-It shallrbe illegal for a cyclist
to pass between adjacent lines of,
ve'hicles proceeding in the same d-
rection. They may pass on the left
of such lanes, and pass only on~
the right when it is lawful and
safe, and
-No one shall operate a motor-
cycle on sidewalks, bicycle and
bridal paths, city parks and open
spaces (scrambling courses) ex-
cept wheie designated.
Reduce Paper Work
Police Chief Walter Krasny said
that a local ordinance duplicat-
ing the forthcoming state law
would facilitate enforcement and
reduce paper work in issuing sum-
monses for violations.
At present some ambiguity exists
over the definition of a motorcycle
as opposed to a motor scooter and
