passing interim rules

President's assistant
to replace Cutler
Prof. Barbara Newell, assistant to University President
Robben Fleming, will be appointed interim Vice President
for Student Services, Fleming confirmed yesterday.
Fleming stressed the temporary nature of the appoint-
ment -- Mrs. Newell will hold the position only until a search
committee finds a permanent replacement for outgoing Vice
President Richard L. Cutler.
Other sources, however, including several prominent
students and faculty, suggested Mrs. Newell might be a prime
candidate for the recommen-

V Members of Student Govern-
ment Council have condemned
University President Robben Fle-
ming's directive to University
schools and colleges to legislate
interim rules on non-academic
student discipline.
A statement approved by six
SGC members at a meeting last
night said that "SGC does not
recognise any non-academic rules
formulated during this interim
period by any school or college
and will use any action necessary
to support students tried within
any school or college for violation
of non-academic regulations."
Meeting chairman executive
vice president Robert Neff, treas-
urer Dennis Webster, ex-officio
members Daniel McCreath and
Robert Rorke, and at-Large mem-
bers E. 0. Knowles and Thomas
Westerdale briefly discussed pos-
Ssible student demonstrations pro-
testing the faculty action but did
not reach a decision.
The members also urged that,
until the new judicial system is
established, the various schools
and colleges recognise the student
judiciary system's authority to
adjudicate violations of non-aca-
demic regulations.
Neff called the action a "posi-
tion statement and a warning to
the schools and colleges in the
event they try to adjudicate in
non-academic affairs of students."
"This action leaves us flexible

According to a Daily poll con-
ducted yesterday, the education,
and the engineering, literary and
music, natural resources, public

and the engineering, literary and
pharmacy colleges have adopted

University functions by depriving
others of needed quiet, light, heat,
or other physical conditions of
work, is prohibited.
The rules will be enforced by
the judiciary bodies in the schools
and colleges which normally ad-

in the classroom, such as cheat-
ing and plagiarism.
The graduate school may re-
lease a statement of its interim
proceedings this afternoon. The
school reportedly was considering
a draft of nine rules, including
one which prohibited the use by
graduate students of narcotics on
University property or "Univer-
sity-controlled" property and at
University-sponsored events (see
letter, editorial page).
An informed source said yes-
terday that the draft of nine rules
was being rewritten. There was
no indication what the content of
the new graduate school rules
would be.

Summer's students
Part of the influx of strictly summer students included teachers who are working on advanced
degrees. Many of these Ā§tudents' are nuns who teach in Catholic schools around the state.
Why . is the sky purple?

Washtenaw County's Board of
Supervisors voted yesterday to
legalize some Sunday liquor sales
in the county.
The measure passed was the
most liberal allowed under a new
state law permitting individual
counties to legalize Sunday sales.
Liquor may be served in res-
taurants which do more than 50
per cent of their gross business
in thge sale of food.
The sales will be legal after
2 p.m.
Support for the measure cen-
tered around the contention that
Washtenaw County is becoming a
tourist center and a convention
area. Members of the board were
apparently concerned that the
county might lose some business
if Sunday sales remained illegal.
The measure passed by the
board allows individual townships,
villages and municipalities to de-
clare Sunday sales invalid within
their own borders if they desire.
Supervisor William Papineau,
one of the two members of the
county board who voted against
the proposal, said that his oppo-
sition was based on the "obvious
"There is a correlation between
the use of alcohol and traffic ac-
cidents, and the more liquor that's
consumed the more accidents
there could be," Papineau added.

be named soon.
Mrs. Newell was out of town
and unavailable for comment yes-
Since Fleming became president
last year, Mrs. Newell has acted
as a troubleshooter for the presi-
dent and served as one of his
closest advisers.
She has handled tasks for the
president, including the research-
ing of his speech to the Detroit
Economics Club attempting to
justify out-of-state enrollment.
The appointment of Mrs. New-
ell as vice president for student
services reflects the expected re-
structuring of the Office of Stu-
dent Affairs.
If the Regents approve Flem-
ing's reorganization plans at their
July meeting next week, the unit
will become the Office of Student
Included in the restructuring
will be the removal of disciplinary
responsibility of the office, a chief
recommendation of the Presiden-
tial Commission on the Student
Role in Decision-Making in its
report last March.
Mrs. Newell, 39, wasassistant
to Fleming when he was chan-
cellor of the Madison branch of
the University of Wisconsin. She
has held an appointment as as-
sociate professor of economics
here since last March and is a
specialist in labor relations.
She received a9 bachelor of
arts degree in 1951 from Vassar
College, a masters degree from
Wisconsin in 1953, and a doctorate
there in 1958.
Mrs. Newell was assistant and
theni associate professor of eco-
nomics at Purdue Univerity from
1959 until 1964 when she returned
to Wisconsin as Fleming's assist-

Our Staff Meteorologist
Sweet, little Sheilah Patterson
of Appleton, N.D., asked The Daily
why the sky turned purple.
Sheilah was worried because
the sun failed to reappear follow-
ing yesterday afternoon's cloud-
burst, and instead a wierd, pur-
plish haze shrouded many Uni-
versity buildings.
But wipe those raindrops from
your eyes, Sheilah; all is well,
In an exclusive Daily inter-
view, Dr. Hazel Losh, former pro-
fessor of astronomy, explained
away the phenomenon as "re-
fraction effect."
"I don't think you have much
of a story," she said, trying to
calm fears of armageddon.
Nevertheless, the Associated
Press, in a copyrighted story, re-

Dingle summarized the report,
saying the sky is purple because
purple wavelengths were shining
through it.
The professor did not link the

Associated Press reports of solar
flares to the presence of the rosy
light. Instead, he explained that,
at sunset, the short blue wave-
lengths, sometimes responsible for
the sky blue color sometimes seen
in Ann Arbor, are not scattered
as easily as the longer red waves.
Thus it is as if a "red spot-

The "free university" move-

underground for 21/2 years.
The Ann Arbor Free School is
