CsJ

By DANIEL ZWERDLING
Turn to page 21 under Discipline of
the new fall Literature, Science and Arts
catalog and you'll find two new innocu-
ous-looking paragraphs which appar-
ently violate the entire student judi-
cary system established by Student
Government Council and the proposed,
by-laws.
The paragraphs, which have never
appeared before in the publication, warn
that any student who is "alleged to have
been involved in disruption in the of-
fices, classrooms, laboratories and li-
braries of the University" should be sub-
ject to disciplinary action by the LSA
Administrative Board.
Last year, however, SGC established
a Central Student Judiciary system
which permits student trials only before
courts formed by democratically-elect-
ed student governments in schools or
colleges.
The Administrative Board is com-
posed of nine faculty and administra-
tors, and two non-voting students ap-

pointed by the LSA Student Steering
Committee.
James -Shaw, assistant dean and
chairman of the board, claims it "has
de facto responsibility under the Fac-
ulty Code to set up these k i n d s of
rules."
The actual guidelines, he says, stem
from meetings following the Karen
Danzer case in 1967.
The Danzer controversy flared when
then Vice-President for Student Affairs
Richard C'utler tried to bring Miss Dan-
zer before the board for sitting in
against a visiting admiral .on N o r t h
Campus.
With no precedent to go on, the Board
refused the case - but worked on the
statement now in the LSA catalog.
"We formulated the guidelines to be
purposely broad, so we could cover all
types of cases that might occur," says
Shaw. Disruptive cases, says Shaw,
come under the broad concept of "aca-
demic" jurisdiction.
The statement consequently was pub-

lished in the Daily Official Bulletin last
July, and now stands as the literary
college's official policy on University
disruptions.
Student Government Council flatly
disagrees. Under the Central Judiciary
established last fall - and under the
proposed by-laws, if passed - all stu-
dents charged with violating academic
or non-academic regulations must ap-
pear before student-formed boards.
Boards may be formed within dormi-
tories, schools, colleges - any Univer-
sity units - as long as they represent
"democratically elected" student coun-
cils.
Students convicted may appeal to the
governing faculty of their school, or di-
rectly to President Robben Fleming.
Under the Administrative Board pol-
icy, Ihowever, students are tried before
a six man court of two faculty, t w o
counseling administrators and two stu-
dents. The only provision for appeal is
to the dean.
"The Administrative Board provision

policy
is clearly in violation of the SGC bill of
rights, every bit of legislation passed
last year and the by-laws," declares
grad Michael Davis, former SGC Execu-
tive Vice President who a 1 s o helped
write the by-laws.
"It is not representative of any stu-
dent government, and it is in no way a
judicial body," he says.
Shaw notes that "students were in-
volved in drafting the board's guide-
lines" - but the students were only
representatives of the LSA steering
committee, which Shaw admits chooses
its members "sometimes carefully, some-
times by lot."
In any case, the Administrative
Board clearly does not represent a stu-
dent government elected by any school
or college.
Davis predicts that any case called
before the board in the future-if any-
will provoke a political fight which will
"tear the University apart.''

Murd er ;gun
found in river
By SCOTT MIXER
A gun recovered by Michigan. State Police divers in the
Huron River yesterday afternoon has been positively identi-
fied as the weapon which killed Margaret Phillips.
The gun was found about 150 yards upstream from the
bridge where U.S. 23 crosses the river. Police used an elec-
tronic metal detector, similar to a mine detector, to locate
the gun.
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter Krasny said that police
would have stopped searching yesterday in the muddy water
of the Huron whether they found anything or not.
The search had been going on during daylight hours
since Monday morning. A State Police team of seven pro-

City Council revised a city
parks ordinance last night in
an effort to resolve the con-
troversy over rock concerts in
the parks.
The major revision in the ordi-
nance stipulates that concerts
with electronically a m p 1i f i e d
music be banned from city parks
in predominantly resi d e n t ial
areas. This virtually rules out any
park except Gallup Park.
The original ordinance did not
ban concerts from parks in pre-
dominantly residential areas but
did require that the concerts be
rotated.
The new regulations do allow
rock concerts on other property
made available to the city. This
would include the University-
owned Fuller Flatlands.
According to the ordinance, the
music can not go above 90 decibels
at the periphery of the park.
Council also ruled last night
that the music can not last for
more than three hours, and said
the time limit would be strictly
enforced.
The permit for a rock concert
last Sunday was denied to the
White Panther Party, when police
reported the possibility of an in-
flux of motorcycle gangs from
outside the city.
White Panther members held a
picnic instead in Nichols Arbore-
tum, and only 40 motorcycles ap-
peared.
Mayor Robert Harris said last
night that a different citizens
group, which would include a
White Panther representative, has
indicated that they wish to be the
sponsors of a rock concert this
Sunday and will apply for a per-
mit today.
Harris said major controversy
centered around the "peripheral
activities"-like possession of al-
cohol and obscene language-but
that reports of violations were ex-
aggerated and the "violations are
not inherent in rock concerts."

disord,,er
measure
WASHINGTON (P) - A tough
new provision that would cut off
federal funds to students involved
in violent campus uprisings has
been approved by a House appro-
priations subcommittee.
Under the bill, a college could
not approve a student's applica-
tion for federal financial assist-
ance if he had participated in a
violent campus disruption.
At present, funds can be with-
drawn only after a student has
been convicted of a crime arising
out of a campus disturbance.
The new provision, written by
Rep. Neal Smith (D-Iowa), also
would do away with a present
requirement that a student get a
hearing before his aid is with-
drawn.
There have been few cases un-
der the present law of funds being
cut off after a conviction, pri-
marily because of the slowness of
court procedures.
The Office of Education esti-
mates 1.5 million students or
about one-fourth of the total
number enrolled in degree-credit
colleges, are receiving some form
of federal aid.
The provision was added to a
bill appropriating money to run
the Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare which is ex-
peeted to attract even tougher
amendments before the House
completes action on it in a few
weeks.
Members determined to bring
congressional force to bear on the
problem of unruly students have
been waiting all session for a
chance to act and the HEW ap-
propriations bill offers it.
Despite its relative ineffective-
ness the present law has drawn
severe criticism from college ad-
ministrators and students and the
new version undoubtedly will pro-
duce even louder outcries.
Smith's new move follows the
failure of the House Education
and Labor Committee to come up
with a less stringent bill.
At one-point the Education and

District Court Judge S.J. Elden sentenced two more persons
Wednesday on misdemeanor charges arising from the South Univer-
sity disturbances three weeks ago.
The cases brought the number to five convicted since trials began.
Ten have been tried and four acquitted. One case ended in a hung
jury and will be retried at the end of the month.
Kent Livingston, 17, of 2736 Georgetown Blvd., was sentenced
to'14 days in jail to be served on weekends, and $230 in fine and
court costs.
Livingston was found guilty of creating a disturbance on July 2.
Also sentenced was Diane Bennham, 25, of 825 Sylvan. Miss
Bennham was ordered to spend 30 days in the county jail and pay
$240 for creating a contention.
Livingston was arrested a block off South University on the lawn
of his apartment. Prosecutor Thomas F. Shea maintained Livingston
was shouting at the police and possibly even threw rocks or bottles
at them.
Livingston insisted under oath he did not use 'abusive language
or throw anything but admitted he was very upset at the police
charges and was not sure exactly what he had done or said prior to
his arrest.
Miss Bennham had been accused of trying to free another girl
from police custody on the night of June 17. The girl, Judy Jeska,
was acquitted earlier of charges of creating a disturbance in a court
trial presided over by District Judge Pieter G. V. Thomassen.
A preliminary examination is now underway to discover if there
is'probable cause to believe Gary Holley, 17, of 1444 Washington Hts.,
attacked an Ann Arbor police officer with a knife on June 17.

"It looks like a 50-50 proposi-
tion," he said.
According to an Associated Press
poll, there now are 50 senators
opposed to Nixon's plan, 48 in
support and two uncommitted
publicly.
Aiken told newsmen he is con-I
fident the senators will "reach an!
agreement on an amendment be-
fore they come to a vote" and said
if Safeguard proponents refuse to
accept a compromise, "they're
licked."

L GRANT TO PROFESSORS
j eet gets $5

By NADINE COHODAS
Two professors in the educa-
tion school have received a
federal gift-$5 million worth-
to set up a program to train
urban educators.
The professors, Anthony C.
Milazzo and Mathew J. Trippe,
have redrafted their proposal
since they first presented it this
spring, to answer some dis-
satisfaction in the education
school over its aims. But some

Unlike another urban educa-
tion program which was pro-
posed by Prof. David Angus, the
Milazzo - Trippe program does
not include undergraduates in
the education school.
Instead it trains graduate stu-
dents at the masters and doc-
toral level and experienced edu-
cators.
The program is divided in
seven basic areas, including an,

cussion among education pro-
fessors about the manner in
which the proposal was written
and what its goals were.
Prof. Angus says the original
proposal "didn't spell out a pro-
gram. You couldn't tell what
was going to happen." He has
not seen the rewritten proposal.
Education school Dean Wil-
bur Cohen also had objections
to the original proposal and
asked Milazzo and Trippe to re-
