State legislators prepare for

to implement the laws we already
have, starting with city hall. She
then asked Cowley what was be-
ing done regarding complaints of
discrimination against the city.'
Cowley replied that "the six
cases of alleged discrimination in.
city hall have been presented to
the city administrator."
When later asked as to the dis-
pensation of these cases, Cowley
said, "Two of the cases were set-
tled immediately when the ad-
ministrator hired the two people."
However, he continued, "One per-
son still doesn't have a job."
Cowley did not comment on the
status of the other three cases.
The Community Committee for
Child Day Care and Development
also presented a detailed report
to HRC on the structure and pur-]
poses of the Day Care Center they
hope to have functional by early
July. Because HRC has already
made $40,000 available to the Day
Care Center, the discussion cen-
tered on concerns with the spe-
cific organization of the center.
Evelyn Moore, a commissioner.
made clear that "the center is a,
new concept of self determina-
tion." She continued, "Most of the
planning must be done by the
mothers themselves."
Mrs. Grubbs, who said she
wanted to make sure the original
purpose of the. center was not
lost, said, "It is a program to en-
able the children's mothers to go
into training programs and get
off relief."
Richard Cutler, Special Assis-
tant for Urban Affairs, said the
University would provide bus
transportation for the center. He
also mentioned the University
might provide other services in
the future.

The State Civil Rights Commis-
sion heard final testimony yester-
day on a charge of discrimination
against the University M e d I c a'1
Center by Mrs. LaVerne Hill,
Mrs. Hill claims that when she
requested withdrawal of her re-
signation as assistant operating
room supervisor at the Medical
Center in June, 1965, she was re-
fused and instead offered an in-
ferior position at the hospital be-
cause she is black.

McClung testified that Miss
Muriel Horton, Mrs. Hill's super-

senior 'associate director at the
hospital, commented there was a
"communication problem" be-

Dr. Nelson and Miss Horton at-
tributed this problem to M r s.

Horton said Mrs. Hill often wrote
her notes when she , could ,have

making his recommendations.

LANSING (P) - Senate leadersI
speculated yesterday that t h e
emotion-charged issue of abortion
law reform would win approval in
the upper chamber.
"I believe that some proposal
has an extremely good chance to
pass," said Senate Majority Lead-
er Emil Lockwood, (R-St. Louis),
who has pledged his support for a
bill authorizing abortions under
limited circumstances.
Minority Leader Sander Levin,
D-Berkley, said, "There's a -better
than 50-50 chance" the Senate
will pass a measure reforming the
state law that now allows term-
ination of pregnancy only when


the life of the mother is in dang- i where to send any proposal that

Counseling office funded

The education school yesterday appro-
priated $7000 for the establishment of a
Student Advisory Office proposed by Stu-
dents for Education Innovation.
Jack Eisner,.SEI president, said the pri-
mary function of the office will be to pro-
vide outlines describing courses within the
school and certification and degree in-
formation to assist the student in course
The office, which is scheduled to open
July 1 on the second floor of the educa-
tion school, will also provide information,
concerning scholarships, financial aid op-
portunities, and study abroad.
The office will provide a place for in-
formal discussions between students. Two

undergraduates, two graduates, and one
faculty member. The coordinators will be
ex-officio members.
SEI will give an evaluation report of
the office to Dean-designate Wilbur Co-
hen at the end of 1969 and again in Feb-
ruary, 1970.
Eisner says the ad hoc committee which
formulated the counseling office proposal
was formed because the faculty counseling
system within the school was wasting too
much time of "course-juggling and red
tape" for both students and faculty coun-
selors, instead of providing meaningful
academic counseling,
He also hopes the office will be able to
expand to include a system of course eval.

Tuesday; in winning Senate votes
to take his bill from the table.
The vote was 21-9.
Bursley's bill - which leaders
believe has the best chance of
passage-would allow abortions
when the mental or physical
health of the mother was en-
dangered, when there was "sig-
nificant risk" that the baby would
be seriously deformed and in cases
of rape or incest.
