OUTLAWS DISCRIMINATION:
SGC Founds Bias Cases Group

By JEAN SPENCER
Student Government Council
this past school year has in several
major undertakings carried out its
function as an administrative and
representative student government.
In its work to eliminate discrim-
ination in student organizations
and local stores, SGC has ex-
pressed sympathywith student
anti - discrimination movements
seen nationally and internationally
as well as on a University level.
Pass Regulation
A major result of this work is
the new University regulation on
restrictive membership practices in
student organizations. Replacing
an old ruling which applied only
to groups seeking recognition after
the establishment of the ruling in
1949, the new regulation applies to
all recognized organizations and
says membership selection shall be
based on personal merit rather
than race, color, religion, creed,
national origin or ancestry.
The new ruling effectively im-
plements a bylaw passed by the
Regents last November, which out-
lines University policy along the
same lines without specifying a
ruling.
Equally important is the Com-
mittee on Membership set up con-'
currently to arbitrate cases in
which charges of bias are made.
The committee will include four
students and three members of the
faculty and administration.

May I remind our freshmen that since they are spending
four or more years at the University they proceed immediately
to lay their academic foundation soundly; that they explore all
aspects of the University, curricular and extracurricular; and
that they take the long look at what they expect from life
before deciding how the University can best help them reach
their goals.
Best wishes for success and happiness in your life and work

Flint, Dearborn Branches Offer Unique Se,

rvice

Four years ago the University decided it was time to expand -
the result was the establishment of a two-year senior college in
Flint.
The experiment proved so successful that the University again
expanded beyond the bounds of Ann Arbor last year, this time set-
ting up a branch known as the Dearborn Center.
Both campuses are small, compared to the 24,000 students who
wander around the Ann Arbor compus, but both are thriving and
serving the communities they are situated in. And both are unique
in the educational services they have to offer.
The Dearborn Center, which began operations last year with
a total enrollment of 33 students, expects to have a full-time en-
rollment of around 200 this fall.
All three of its basic curricula will be offered this year: engin-
eering, business administration and liberal arts.
Offer Work-Study Programs
The engineering and business administration curricula are gear-
ed to work-study programs in which the students spend alternate
semesters on campus and on carefully selected work assignments
in business and industry. The Ann Arbor campus has no comparable
program, and many of Dearborn's students have transferred to that
branch after having completed their freshman and sophomore years
here.
The main work-study curricula break into programs in business
