Eventual independence from the Univer-
sity and immediate expansion to a four-r
year college are among the key recom-
riendations of the special study committee
on the future of the University's Dearborn
The report, released yesterday, is pres-
ently under consideration by the Univer-
sity's executive officers. The student-fac-
ulty-community committee was established
last November by Vice President for State
Relations and Planning Arthur Ross.
"Although the committee was asked to
base its study on the assumption that the
Dearborn Campus would remain an in-
tegral part of the University, the Commit-
tee found no strong reason for an in-
definate continuance of this policy," the
report states.
The committee recommended that a de-
tailed five-year plan, consistent with the





recommendations of the report, be formu-
lated to prepare the campus for independ-
ence as a state university.
During this five year period, the campus
should strive to become a "viable, self-
sufficient unit capable of assuming major
responsibility for higher educational needs
in the metropolitan area," the report states.
Dearborn is on the edge of Detroit.
The campus would remain an integral
part of the University during this time.
The committee also urged that freshmen
and sophomores be admitted in the fall
of 1970.
"Such a move would permit the campus
to compete more effectively for students
and to serve them better once enrolled,"
the report says.
The Dearborn Campus is currently one
of the only schools in the country which
offers "upper-division instruction," a jun-

ior-senior level curriculum with a limited
graduate school program.
The limited course offerings are one of
the principle causes for a disappointing
growth rate, the report says.
However, if expansion were agreed upon,
Ross said yesterday, "1971 would be a more
practical date for its inception."
The report says the Dearborn Campus
has a great potential and opportunity for
growth. If its recommendations are adopt-
ed, "an enrollment projection of 2,200 by
1975 and 5,000 by 1980 seems quite reason-
The number of students has grown at
Dearborn from 34 in 1959 to 777 last fall,
most of them transferring after completing
two years at adjacent Henry Ford Com-
munity College,
But the committee also maintained "the
community college is not oriented toward
the upper division college."

Although the committee was aware that
nearby community colleges might object
to expanding Dearborn to four years, it
was "not discouraged."
"There is no evidence at Flint that the
four year program has injured the Flint
Community College, Ross observes, "al-
though we will be discussing the expansion
with the Dearborn community college of-
ficials before we decide on the merits of
the program."
In support of the recommendations for
autonomy and independence, the commit-
tee asked that;
-Academic programs at Dearborn be
directed toward the needs of the western
Detroit metropolitan area, and consider
specifically the "needs of urban youth,
local public service agencies and institu-
tions and local industry";
-Four year academic programs in the
liberal arts and sciences, education, busi-

ness administration and engineering be
offered, with the present cooperative pro-
gram-where the students alternate terms
of classroom instruction with relatea work
assignments in business and industry-be-
coming optional rather than mandatory;
-Masters level programs be initiated
where faculty strengths and resources per-
mit without distracting from the develop-
ment of undergraduate options;
-A new name be chosen for the campus
to "connote the autonomy of the campus
and facilitate its future transition to in-
dependent status;"
-The chief executive officer of the cam-
pus carry a title other than "Dean," per-
haps Provost of Chancellor, and report to
the President and other executive officers
of the University;
-The Dearborn Campus be advised by
a citizens' committee appointed by the Re-

gents and broadly representative of the
metropolitan area;
-A capital building program, including
a new library building, student activities
facilities and additional campus housing
be initiated;
-A long range plan for physical de-
velopment of the campus be undertaken
to meet projected enrollment increases.
The committee also suggested admission
standards, currently the same as in Ann
Arbor, be made more flexible "to serve a
more diverse group of high school grad-
uates." Graduation standards should re-
main at the "same high level."
"Findings and recommendations of the
Dearborn study, as in the case of other
such reports, are advisory and subject to
consideration by the Regents," Ross said.
"It is our intention to consult fully with
interested parties before proposing a defi-
nite plan of action."

City Administrator Guy Lar-

Commission for its actions
concerning the alleged police

Ray Chauncey.
Chauncey was arrested May

In his statement, Larcom said
the behavior of HRC director
David Cowley "in this case has not
been functional in terms of clari-
fying the facts and taking ef-
fective and appropriate action."
The city administrator also crit-
icized Chauncey for his "totally
unacceptable, inappropriate" be-
havior at the bar.
Neither Cowley nor Chauncey
was available for comment yes-
Larcom particularly criticized!
Cowley for:
-releasing "to the press a num-
ber of unsupported negative gen-
eralizations about the police;"
-releasing to the press "a one-
sided version of the incident with-

Fee hike wold start
wihen facilities open
The Intramural Advisory Board, which barred reporters
from its key Monday night meeting, has recommended the
use of a $15 per term additional tuition levy to fund con-
struction of two IM facilities, The Daily learned yesterday.
Under the proposal, however, the levy would not be insti-
tuted until construction of the buildings had been completed.
Thus only students who could use the proposed facilities
would be required to pay for them.
The IM board proposal also suggests that the Regents and
Student Government Council reach some agreement on a
method of allowing for increased student participation in
the controversial decision of how to fund the buildings.
SGC has demanded that
anyfinal decision on IM fund-
ingawait a binding student IIbo r
referendum on the question.

WASHINGTON () - The Nixon administration expresse
opposition yesterday to a bill backed by House Republican
that would require colleges to file with the government plan
for controlling campus disorders.
Secretary of Welfare Robert H. Finch and James E. Allen
U.S. commissioner of education, told the chief GOP sponsor,
of the legislation they could not support it.
Both officials, along with President Nixon and Atty. Gen
John N. Mitchell, have said major responsibility for dealin
with campus disorders should be left with the universities
The lack of administration support failed to dampen th
determination of the Republicans to push the bill, howeve
They hope to have it approved by the House Education an
Labor Committee next week.
Finch and Allen were called to the office of Rep. Alber
H. Quie, (R-Minn.) to make clear their position on the bill
a compromise measure with bipartisan support that wa
introduced Monday.
The bill's chief feature is its re-
quirement that colleges applying
for federal funds submit a code
of approved campus conduct and
a plan for dealing with 'st'dent / !

Such a vote would be taken

Several key administrators -
including Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allan F. Smith -
have said they would prefer using
the results of a survey of stud-
ent views as a basis for deciding
whether students favor the tui-
tion assessment plan.
Smith, who asked the IM com-
mittee to draft the proposal, has
said he would trust the results
of a survey more than a referen-
dum because he believes refer-

However, proponents of the re-
ferenda have countered that peo-
ple are more likely to respond to
surveys if they favor the plan'
being suggested.
The IM board's proposal is ex-
pected to be brought\ to the Re-
gents next week at their regular
monthly meeting. No immediate
action on the proposal is expect-
ed, however.
The proposal was drafted at
Monday's closed meeting. After
the meeting, board members re-
fused to disclose the contents of
the plan.
The meeting was closed largely
at the request of Athletic Direc-
tor Don Canham who tolduboard
members the Regents would be
annoyed if the proposal appeared
in the newspapers before it was
sent to them.
A wide range of student groups
-including SGC, Inter-House As-

the Tenants Union, and Stock-
well Council - have expressed
strong opposition to the use of
an increase in tuition to fund the
proposed IM facilities.

Monday to draft a proposal for

SGC also urged students to
withhold payment of any tuition
increases slated for intramural
construction, if the decision to use

SGC has already demanded that
