President Robben Fleming
has responded to Student Gov-
ernment Council demands for'
policy-making power for Uni-
versity advisory committees
by declaring firmly that "the
advice of advisory commit-
tees . . cannot be binding"
on executive officers.
Fleming's statement, in the
form of a letter to Acting Vice
President for Student Affairs
Barbara Newell, rebuffs current
motions' pending before SGC
which would give alladvisory
committees in the University
authority to mandate policy.
SGC officers, however, say
Fleming's letter will not affect
action on their motions, which
also provide for SGC withdrawal
from any committees which refuse
to comply.
"From the standpoint of the
Administration, chaos would re-
sult from a concept that various
and sundry advisory committees,
of which there are many, canj
mandate the administrators with
whom they work," says Fleming's




Pepes picnic' set
for Sunday i1 Arb
City officials denied a request yesterday from White
Panther Party members for a permit to allow a rock concert
this Sunday at Gallup Lake Park.
However, at a community meeting at Trans-Love Ener-
gies last night, White Panther members decided to hold a
"people's picnic" at Nichols' Arboretum Sunday without am-
plified music. The Arb belongs to the University.
Skip Taube, minister of information for the White Pan-
thers, said he has been denied permits in the past to use the
Arb. But he emphasized that this picnic will be an informal,
peaceful gathering.

on state panel
LANSING () - Gov. William
Milliken has named a 40-mem-
ber citizens advisory group to his
commission on educational re-
form, including four University
faculty members.
The group is about equally
divided between educators and
those with a strong interest in
the subject. They will hold their
first meeting today, primarily for
organizational purposes.
Appointed from the University
were three professors from the
education school and Medical
School professor Dr. A l b e r t
Wheeler, who is president of the
Michigan Conference of Branches
of the NAACP.-
The faculty members from the
education school are Alvin D.
Loving, Russell Wilson and Stan-
ley E. Dimond.
"We hope the group will be an
information resource pool to both
the commission and its staff as
we move through a very busy
summer and a final report by

Minton's recommendations were

HEW and will be reported to the
University at a later date.

Mayor Robert J. Harris and
City Administrator Guy C. Lar-
com, Jr. announced the concert
cancellation yesterday, saying,
"This action has been taken at
the request of the principal law
enforcement officers based on
their intelligence reports which
predict an influx of hundreds,
perhaps thousands, of motorcy-
clists from outside the city."
Taube said last night that some
motorcyclists from Detroit were
invited to come down to the con-
cert but"not over 100."
"This is just a police ruse to
prohibit people from getting to-
gether," charged Taube. He added
that the permit to hold a concert
did not stipulate who may attend
the concert but was concerned
only with allowing amplified mu-
sic in a public park.
Harris and Larcom said that
"permitting the concert would
multiply greatly the police re-
sponsibilities and problems of
controlling law and order."
They said that all the officials
- including the police, prosecut-
ing attorneys and others 'in the
city government - decided that
"it is in the best public interest
that this decision be made.'
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter
Krasny said last night there were
several other factors that were
considered in the decision to can-
cel the park concert.
1 Krasny did say that Harvey's
statements concerning the Sunday
concert had no effect on his posi-
tion to cancel the concert.,
Harvey attended yesterday's
meetings with city officials and
"I believe they (White Panther
sponsors of the concert) broke
faith in what they would and
would not do," said Krasny. "I
cannot sit by with the conduct
that went on at the last concert."
Krasny claimed that people
used the microphones on stage to
"exhort" others to break the laws
- including "to smoke pot."
If there are any future concerts,
Krasny said there would be uni-
formed policemen- patrolling the
parks who would arrest anyone
breaking any laws.

The defense accepted the mo-

Nine members of Radical
Caucus met with President
Robben Fleming yesterday in
a stormy 45-minute 'session
and demanded that the presi-
dent initiate an investigation
of complaints of violence
against the Ann Arbor police.
Fleming told the caucus ijiem-
bers that he would first have to
discuss the matter with Senate
Assembly's Student R e l at io n s
Committee, but later added he
did not think such a study would
be appropriate for the University
to undertake.
Fleming expressed "confidence"
in Mayor Robert Harris and in
the two-man investigating com-
mittee which the mayor created
last week to look into charges
against the police, stemming from
the recent disorders on South Uni-
versity Ave.
Caucus members argued that a

of Ann Arbor policemen would be
appropriate because the Univer-
sity pays 18 per cent of the police
budget of the force. This money is
paid in compensation for police
protection on University property.
Caucus members cited actions
of the Ann Arbor police during
the South University disorders
that they say cast doubt on the
wisdom of continued University
subsidy of the force.
Specifically, Caucus member
Gary Rothberger told Fleming of
the club-swinging charge which
Ann Arbor police made at a group
of people who were standing near
the Engin Arch at 11 p.m. on the
first night police were called in
to South University.
About a dozen police had
charged through the Engin Arch
and up to the Undergraduate Li-
brary in a maneuver that was ap-
parently coordinated with another
charge toward the UGLI through
