May recomimend
camps-wide C,
SGC ratification
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
Vice President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler said yester-
day he is ready to bring to the
Regents a form of the controver-
sial University Council bylaw which
includes concessions to students in
the two major areas of contention.
Cutler said he is ready to rec-
ommend that the jurisdiction of
the University Council (UC), a
proposed tri-partite rule making
body, be extended to the entire
University community.,;
In an earlier draft of the pro-'
posed bylaw, UC would have made
rules for students only.
The bylaw is an attempt to im-
plement a portion of the Hatcher
Commission Report. The docu-
ment recommended that the juris-
diction of UC include the entire
University community.
REGENTS' RATIFICATION
The other concession involves
a section of Cutler's original by-
law proposal which would have al-
lowed the Regents to ratify a UC-
passed rule if either Student
Government Council or Faculty
Assembly had failed to ratify it
after 45 days.
The Hatcher Commission Re-
port would have required SGC
and Faculty Assembly to ratify
any UC legislation before it could
go ihto effect. The commission
made no provision for a stale-
mate.
Cutler said he is ready to pre-
sent a form of the bylaw to the
Regents which does not include
such a time limit. p
However, the vice president
noted he "couldn't recommend"
that the Regents accept the by-
law in this form because he is
"operating under a Regental di-
rective to make sure a stalemate
does not occur."
PROPOSED CHANGE
Cutler emphasized that he
would not send the bylaw to the
Regents with the proposed chan-
ges unless the ad hoc group asks
im to make that step.

McCARTHY NARROWS GAP:
RFKgve-n tigt 4

By JOSEPH SAX
special To The Daily
By the time court was ad-
journed yesterdayuafternoon,
defendants William Sloane
Coffin and Michael Ferber had
completed their defenses and
Mitchell Goodman was on the
witness stand. Thus by the be-
ginning of this third week of
the trial the defense strategy
is well established.
Essentially it consists of two
elements. First, that the de-
fendants can hardly be viewed
as co-conspirators since they
either did not know each other
at all prior to or during the
time when the conspiracy was
allegedly carried qn, or at best
had the most casual sort of
passing acquaintance. The sec-
ond line of defense is that the
defendants never counseled or
encouraged draft age men to
resist, but merely approved and
gave moral and symbolic sup-'
port to those who had already
made their own independent
decision to resist the draft.
From the evidence presented
thus far, it appears that there
were essentially two lines of
separate activity which con-
verged in the October 20 draft
card turn-in at the Justice De-
partment. The first was the ac-
tivity of the Resistance, a
movement of draft age men,
some of whom had decided to
burn and others to turn in
their draft cards to the gov-
ernment. The other activity
was the decision of various per-
sons too old to be drafted them-
selves that they should show
their support of the Resist-
ance people by abandoning the
draft cards at the Justice De-
partment. Except for Michael
Ferber, who is admittedly of
draft age and a member of the
Resistance group, there has
been no evidence that any of
the other defendants organ-
ized or planned or promoted
the October 16 draft card turn-
in at Boston's Arlington Street
Church, or those which took,
place on that date in other
parts of the country. And ex-
cept for Coffin, who claims
without dispute that he was
simply invited by Resistance
members to speak at the Ar-
lington Street Church cere-
mony after the planning was
done by them wholly on their
own the other defendants ap-
pear to have had no part in
that phase of the events.
At the same time that the
Resistance vwas planning its
activities, at least some of the
other defendants - Goodman
and Coffin - had learned of
those plans and had some con-
versations leading to the idea

tober 16, that he collected
some draft cards there, and
that he there met Ferber for
the first time and had some
casual conversation with him
about the October 20 plans to
go to the Justice Department.
Thus far, the relationship of
Raskin and Dr. Spock to these
events is imperceivable. Wheth-
er the foregoing activities,
loosely connected as they are,
will be enough to show a con-
spiracy is obviously one of the
central questions in the case.
In any event, the prosecutor is
going farther and the bulk of
his cross-examination has been
an effort to show that the de-
fendants' actions and speeches
necessarily implied an urging
to young men - of whom
some must obviously have been
undecided - to turn in their
draft cards and thereby to be-
gin severing themselves from
the Selective Service System.
In short, while conspiracy is
the charge of the indictment,
the government has been play-
ing most strongly the theme of
inducement.
It is this prosecution strategy
which has created one of the
central ironies of the case. As
the government has repeated-
ly emphasized it seems very
odd that persons feeling as
strongly about the war as the
defendants do would speak so
movingly and forcefully with-
out any intent of bringing
young men around to their way
of thinking. The defendants'
answer to this charge is that
they did not want any young
man to do more than make up
his own mind. No doubt they
are perfectly sincere in this
disclaimer but the prosecutor
is putting rather a different
question: whether they could
have begn without the intent
that their views and prestige
would not become a significant
factor in the decision making
process for some uncommitted
draft age men.
The irony is that the defend-
ants are defending themselves
by claiming that they merely
engaged in talk and supported
action for those who were al-
ready committed. Yet in other
contexts one would certainly
think of the defendants as peQ-
ple who wanted "to do some-
thing about the war, not Just
talk about it."
The government is trying to
hang them on their own sin-
cerity and deep feeling, and it
seems thus far to be doing a
pretty effective job. There is
something oddly contradictory
about the exceedingly modest
goals the defendants are claim-
ing for themselves and the ex-

The aa hoc committee is ex-
pected to meet again Thursday at
which time it will consider a new
draft of the UC bylaw written by
students and released yesterday.
The student's version of the by-
law has been completely rewritten
from and includes at least two
major substantive changes from
Cutler's original bylaw draft.
The students' proposal would
allow UC to pass a regulation only
with majority vote which in-
cluded the ballot of at least one
student and one faculty member..
In addition, this proposal would
allow either SGC or Faculty As-
sembly to disaffirm a regulation it
had already passed.
Cutler specifically noted yes-
terday that he could not accept
widespread changes in the bylawsI
if they were proposed by only an
ad hoc group.
Cutler's decision is apparently
the result of discussions last week
with an ad hoc group of student
and faculty leaders who all but
unanimously opposed Cutler's
original bylaw proposal in the two
areas.
Last week student members of
the/ group proposed an alterna-
tive form of the bylaw. This docu-

LOS ANGELES - Sens. Robert
Robert F. Kennedy and Eugene
J. McCarthy ended their cam-
paign for today's Democratic
presidential primary with charges
against each other.

13-hour swing through California.
McCarthy, who in previous pri-

measured pace in last-day rep-

heavily on television, in appealing
for ballot support.
Despite Kennedy's announced
effort to keep bitterness out of
the campaigning, he was so in-
censed by a McCarthy statement
that he fired back hotly.

The assignment of police force
to Ann Arbor High School yester-
day culminated two weeks of
growing racial tension between
a primarily white staff and stu-
dent body and the school's 125
black students who have been
pressing for sweeping reforms.
The rcial friction had re-
mained sibmerged untI late May
when the school's administration
distributed a curriculum question-
aire only to black students.
The survey was conducted In
response to charges that the high
school was forcing blacks into
the "general curriculum" rather
than the study program for col-
lege bound students.
BOYCOTT CLASSES
Threatening to boydott classes
in protest against the question-
aire, the black students quickly
formed an ad hoc organization to
draft demands for reforms. This
group contained nearly every
black student in the school and
was set up within the structure
of the youth council of the
NAACP.
To avert the class boycott and
expected violence, the school's ad-
ministration agreed to hold a
"tell off" where all students
could voice grievances against the
school staff. Classes were called
off Monday, May 27, and volun-
tary meetings were held bet'ween
faculty and interested students.
For three hours that morning
black students listed demands
and voiced charges of racism and
discrimination In the school's aca-
demic, athletic and extracurricu-
lar activities.
21 DEMANDS
Black students listed 21 de-
mands includIn the dismissal of
faculty members found guilty of
bigotry, the prohibition of police
officers from assignment to the
campus, a well defined grievance
procedure for students and a
number of other major reforms.
White students at the school
joined the meeting in the after-
noon and both groups continued
to voice grievances and discuss
the black demands.
Faculty members were careful-
ly instructed by the school's ad-
ministration not to respond ver-
bally to the students' comments.

day, the schools' white students

By PHILIP BLOCK
David M. Copi, '68L, announced
yesterday that he will seek the
Democratic nomination for Sher-
iff of Washtenaw County. Copi
will face incumbent Sheriff Dou-
glas Harvey in the August 3 pri-
mary, although neither candidate
has filed petition with the County
Clerk's Office.
In making his announcement,
Copi said, "I am a candidate for
the Democratic nomination for
sheriff because I believe that the
citizens of Washtenaw County
neither want nor deserve Sheriff
Harvey for another four years."
Copi, Second Ward Democratic
Chairman and a member of the
Executive Board of the Ann Arbor
City Democratic Party, is report-
edly backed by the Washtenaw
County Democratic Committee, of
which he is also a member.

the most important law enforce-
ment agency'in the county. If the
rights and liberties of citizens
are to be preserved and if the
legitimate concept of law and
order is to merit respect, that of-
fice must be administered with
restraint and professionalism. In-
stead, the people of the county
have been burdened for the past
four years by what amounts to
petty despotism.
Copi said that Harvey "has
chosen to rely upon methods dis-
credited a generation ago."
"His stubborn insistence upon
retention of the-. incorrigible cell
and his arbitrary use of of it re-
veal much about the sheriff. So'
does his union-busting approach
to the deputies' association, in
direct violation of state law."
"I voted for Sheriff Harvey in
1964, but I must now actively
oppose him. If we are to maintain

reached, Prof. Irving R. Copi of
the philosophy department, chair-
man of SACUA said he felt that
"With a little good will on all
sides, it shouldn't be too difficult
to make adoption of the report
acceptable to all concerned; fac-
ulty, students and administration."
SACUA will meet with Fleming
again on Thursday, when, accord-
ing to Prof. Ben L. Yablonky of
the journalism department, secre-
tary of SACUA, specific recomin
mendations of SGC, SACUA, the
Hatcher Commission, President'
Fleming and others will be con-
sidered.
"The problem of adoption is
a complex one with some areas of
honest disagreement. I don't think
SACUA is going to provide the
final plan for implementation, but
I think SACUA will be able to
make a contribution toward final
adoption. SACUA is very anxious
to see an early implementation of
the report," said Yablonky.
Copi and Prof. Robert L.
Knauss of the law school, a
SACUA member, have been meet-
ing with Vice President for Stu-
dent Affairs Richard L. Cutler
and SGC President M i c h a e l
Koeneke concerning implementa-
tion of the report's section on the
University judicial system and
other areas.
However Yablonky doubted that
even with all the recommenda-
tions and consultations a proposal
for implementation of the report
could be finalized on Thursday.-l
SACUA held its second apnual
12 hour session Sunday. Copi
characterized the meeting as ex-
hausting, but added that a great
