Rescind OSA's

Huebner proposes delay in
deference to students, faculty'
By STEVE NISSEN
The Regents postponed action on three controversial
bylaws yesterday and rescinded the sweeping disciplinary
powers delegated in 1966 to the Office of Student Affairs.
Through a resolution introduced by Regent Gertrude
Huebner, the board agreed to postpone action "in deference to
the request of both faculty an'd student members of the
academic community."
The proposed, bylaw changes had drawn sharp criticism
from student leaders andi

coMmittee
EAST LANSING () - A com-
mittee that lists several promin-
ent Republicans among its mem-
bership is.out to gain two seats on
the Michigan State University
Board of Trustees this year.
The seats now are held by Dem-
ocrats. One has announced his
candidacy for re-election, while
the other is running for the
House of Representatives.
The group, calling itself the
Committee for Better Trustees,
was formed in 1964 to push for
election of Republicans Paul Bag-
well and John Pingle. Both lost.
Today, the committee boasts 63
members.
Among them are Harold Mc-
Clure, candidate for the GOP na-
tional committee from Michigan;
five Republican State Represen-
tatives, including Majority Floor
Leader William Hampton (Bloom-
field Hills); GOP trustees Ken-
neth Thompson and Frank Mer-
riman, Bagwell and Pingle.
The committee, Thompson said,
will support David Diehl, a Dans
ville Republican who has an-
nounced his candidacy, and "the
next individual who comes forth 1
and indicates his candidacy."
That person need not be a Re-
publican, Thompson said. "The
committee is bipartisan."
However, he added, the group
will "not support the opposition
thdt we have today,. . the pres-
ent Trustee that claims he's going
p to be a candidate." .
C. A. Harlan has announced. he I
will seek a second eight-year term
on the board, to which former
Gov. G. Mennen Williams ap-
pointed him in 1957 to fill a va-
cancy. Harlan ran for the post
and was elected in 1961.3

The University will continue to
require freshman and sophomore
women to obtain written parental
permission to be eligible for ex-
emption from curfew.

fion debates crin

The elimination of the regula-
tions for all students , except
freshmen had been recommended
by a joint University-City com-
mittee in June.
Previously, only seniors, gradu-
ate students and students over 21
were permitted to have cars in
the campus area.
In recommending the action
on vehicles, Vice President for
Student Affairs Richard L. Cut-
ler said "a recent attorney gen-
eral's ruling makes doubtful the
Regents authority to regulate the
use of motor vehicles on public,
streets.
"The effect of totally removing!
restrictions," Cutler said, "is notI
likely to create unreasonable;
traffic problems."
In recommending the Regents
extend the experimental liberal-
ized dormitory regulation Cutler
said "the visitation policy has'
been extremely successful."
The board of governors and
other residential halls staff have
"made clear that premarital in-
tercourse and cohabitation will
not be tolerated," Cutler assured
the Regents.
Under the new policy the staff
"actually makes more effectiver
their efforts to deal with deviant
behavior," Cutler added.
The entire policy's operationi
will be examined in the coming1
year for reaffirmation or modifi-<
cation by the Regents In June,E

As might have been expected,

Dubeek asks followers to fight
attempts to thwart liberalization

PRAGUE UP)h-Party chief Alex-
antler Dubcek, his opponents at
home urged on by Czechoslova-
kia's orthodox Communist neigh-
bors, called on his CommunistI
followers yesterday to fight any
attempt to thwart the govern-
ment's liberalization campaign.
A party Central Committee
meeting, from which .his oppo-
nents apparently were absent, en-
dorsed Dubcek against Soviet-
backed hard-liners and the armed
35,000-man militia they, control.

Also supporting Dubcek, Pre-
' mier Oldrich Cernik appeared o .
television and told Czechoslovaks:
"We do not want to become a sub-
ject of international bargaining."
He urged calm in the face of out-
de pressure.
In a move apparently calcu-
lated to exert psychological press-
ure on the Prague reformers, So-
viet Defense Minister Andrei A.
Grechko cut short a visit to Al-j
geria and returned to Moscow.
Soviet Marshal Ivan I. Yaku-
bovsky, commander of Warsaw
Pact forces, flew back to Moscow
while Soviet troops he had
brought into Czechoslovakia for
maneuvers that ended June 30
were reported moving toward So-
viet territory. Czechoslovak offi-
cials said earlier that the Soviets
had promised the withdrawal
would be completed by Sunday.
Dubcek made his appeal as the
Kremlin was asking the reform
leadership to leave Prague and
its hour-to-hour crsis mood for
talks Monday or Tuesday in the
Soviet Union. Dubcek had no
comment on the request, but pre-
pared for meetings to with leaders
of other Communist parties, ap-
parently to hear Czechoslovakia
defend its reforms face to face.
They were not named.
With 16,000' Soviet troops still
in the country, Dubcek went be-
fore the ruling Communist party
Central Committee and assailed'
Moscow's open support of his Sta-
linist opponents. Earlier yesterday,
Pravda, the Soviet Communist
party newspaper, had singled out
the Czechoslovak People's Militia,
a naramilitary force that backs

age and determination to take
action against right-wing forces
as well as against attempts from
left-wing sectarians to disrupt the
party line.'"
He said Czechoslovakia "neither
can nor wants to return to the
conditions which have been con-
demned by the party once and
for all." And he added:
"Only 'incorrect methods of
dealing with controversial views
could lead to tragic consequences."
Dubcek's reply seemed directed
to a statement by Soviet President
Nikolai V. Podgorny that his gov-
ernment promised "all-around as-
sistance and, support" for the
Czechoslovak opponents of reform.

Iflay .strike
PITTSBURGH VP) - One of the
largest locals in the United Steel-
workers Union voted yesterday to
strike the steel industry if a con-
tract was not reached by next
Thursday.
The margin wap 6-1 in favor of
a strike in the first strike vote
taken in the USW's history.
"We're tickled pink about this,"
said George .A. Pashkevich, vice
president of Local 1104 at Lorain,
Ohio. "I know the international

Pashkevich said 2,321 workers at
U.S. Steel Corp.'s Lorain Works
cast ballots. He said 1,954 workers

ders per year," in a population
where there are over two million
phones ussd to make almost 14'
billion phone calls per year.
After a similar address by Sam-
uel Dash, professor of law at
Georgetown University, a panel
including Blakey, Dash, former
IDetroit police detective. chief
Vincent Piersante, H. Richard
Uviller, New York County Assist-
ant district attorney, and William
Walsh, Chairman of the ABA
Criminal law section debated the.
Omnibus bill provisions.
Walsh vehemently stated that,
wiretapping was especially unfa-
vorable for lawyers since bugs in.
their offices destroy the ability to
keep lawyer-client discussions
confidential.
Terming the bill a "search war-
rant for the brain", Walsh said
any policeman who decides an
emergency exists can tap or bug
anyone or anyplace without" a
court order. "This is an outrage,"
he said.
Sharply disagreeing with Walsh,
Dash said fear of invasion of pri-
vacy would make "all criminal ac-'
tivity shielded by somebody's right
to privacy."
Piersante asserted that police
officers try to make judicious de-
cisions before wiretapping or
bugging.
Examining the recent Court de-
cisions on stop and frisk cases,
Wayne La Fave, professor of law
at the University of Chicago, pre-
sented the main speech at the,
Search & Seizure Seminar.
La Fave gave a resume of three'
important cases tried by the Su-
preme Court where it upheld the
constitutionality of stop and frisk
police action. However, La Fave
argued for more sharply defined
criteria as to what constitutes
stop and frisk and what consti-
tutes search and seizure.
Illinois Supreme Court Justice
Walter Schaeffer, one of the panel,
members, discounted the differ-
ence between the two legal terms.'
He said court decisions "do not
depend on whether the seizure' is
labeled a 'stop' and the search a
'frisk'."
Assistant district attorney Uvil-
ler agreed that a definition of
terms here is not the major issue.
He pointed out that regardless of
court regulations many times
there is a problem of communica-
tion between the court And the
policeman on the, street.

At an open'hearing Thursday
members. of the ad hpc group
which is drafting three sections
of the bylaw cpapter told'the Re-
gents that passage of the pro-
posals would seriously hamper
their work.
The bylaw changes stem from
t'recommendations made in the
Hatcher Commission 'Report on
the Student Role in Decision-
Making. The' Commission also
recommendeddisciplinary author-
ity be removed from the Jurisdic-
tion of the Office of Student Af-
fairs.
The Regents took no action yes-
terday on the proposal to rename
the unit the- Office of Student
Services but approved the ap-
pointment of Prof. Barbara New-
ell as interim vice president.
One faculty member last night
called the stripping of disciplinary,
power from OSA "the end of an
era."
Indeed, problems caused by the
sweeping authority gr.nted the
vice president on October 21, 1966,
were a prime factor in the crea-
tion of the Hatcher Commission
later that year.
Student leaders expressed fa-
vorable reactions to the Regental
decision yesterday. "It is the only
thing rational men could have
done," Robert Neff, executive vice
president of Student Government
'Council said.,

"the board would regard it as a

Appoint
athletics
board
By JOEL BLOCK

Four students and four faculty
members were appointed at yes-
terday's Regents meeting to a
newly-established advisory board
on intramprals, recreation, and
club sports.
The board was created by the
Regents during last February's re,
organization of the athletic de-
partment to advise Athletic Di-
rector Don Canham on non-inter-
collegiate athletics.
Randolph 'Wise and Robin
Wright, both juniors, were ap--
pointed to two-year terms on the
board while senior Martha Dum-
ford and grad student David Mild-
ner were named to one-year seats.
Wise is an economics major in
the literary college. Last year he
was athletic manager for Winchell
House, winner ,of the residence
halls all sports championship.
Miss Wright is a sportswriter
and sports night editor for The
Daily.
Miss Dumford is the new pres-
ident of the Women's Athletic As-
sociation while Mildner is an ac-
t'ive member of the rugby club.
*The four facultymembers ap-
pointed by President Fleming and
approved by the Regents are Prof.
Douglas A. Hayes of the School
of Business Administration; Prof.
Loren S. Barrit of the School of
Education; Prof. Samuel $. Clarls
of the Engineering College, and
Prof. Mary Reynolds of the, Nurs-
ing School.
Hayes is also on the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate Athlet-
ics.
The board' will have 'five ex-
officio members: 'Canham, Rod-
ney Grambeau, head of the intra-
mural department; Paul Hunsick-
er, chairman of the men'sphysical
education department; Marie
Hartwig, chairman of the women's
physical education department;
and William Steude, director' of
student-community relations.
The student appointments were
made by Fleming upon recommen-
dation 'of student leaders. Starting
next year, elections will be held
for the intramural board seats in
the same manner as seats on the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics.
The faculty members werecho-
sen by Fleming from a panel nom-
inated by the Senate Advisory
Committee on University' Affairs.
This process will continue in the
future.
Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs' Allen Smith 'said after the
meeting that' the next action of
the intramural board will be up
to Canham. "The matter i§,out of
our hands and it is now the ath-
letic director's prerogative to call
a meeting'of the intramural board
just as he does for the Board in
Control of Intercollegiate- Athlet-

Mrs. Huebner
they submit redrafts of any of the
bylaws now contained in Chapter
Seven with-which they 'disagree,"
Student dissatisfaction with the
bylaw draft centered on several
sections of the proposal. Student
leaders criticized a regulation in
the bylaw that .no speaker spon-
sored by a student organization
may "urge the audience to take
action which is prohibited by the
rules of the University or which
is illegal under Federal or Michi-
gan law."
Another controversial section of
the proposal states that "respon-
sibility for public meetings and
programs must .be assumed for-
mally by a pe son over 21 years
of age who is a University student
