Beineman's body was found Sat-
urday afternoon face down in a
ravine in the woods off the inter-
section of Riverside and Huron
River Drive by Prof. Conrad
Mason, who notified County Sher-
iff Douglas Harvey.
Harvey did not announce pub-
licly that the coed's body had been
found until Sunday morning. He
said the reason for the delay was
that the girl's parents had to be
notified first.
The sheriff's department placed
the area where Beineman was
Ifound under a tight security ring.
Hervey did not notify anyone ex-

Delhey and deputies who kept a

Due to a mixup in communica-
tions, Ann Arbor Police Chief

spoke to him Sunday morning.

ConTference on student unrest

on landlords
A federal antitrust suit filed last March against Ann Ar-
bor landlords by eight local tenants was dismissed Saturday
by District Judge Fred W. Kaess in Detroit.
Kaess also dismissed a countersuit filed by the landlords
charging the tenants with conspiring to violate leases and to
encourage others to do so.
Kaess, who heard arguments from both sides on Thurs-
day, ruled that the tenants''suit did not involve interstate
commerce as required for prosecution under the Sherman
Antitrust Act. Instead he told the tenants to "seek their rem-
edy under state law."
"The state of Michigan specifically provides regulations
for and safeguards against!
'restraint of trade' through its' a *
own and adequate laws," the Vic110
judge said.
A similar case is already going
on in Circuit Judge William Ager's 1
court in A n n Arbor. Landlords
have filed a suit charging the "so-
called" Tenants Union with con- !
spiracy to violate future and ex- I 1iTh u s

Bylaw negotiations planned

The S e n a t e Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs
(SACUA) has agreed to estab-
lish a negotiating committee
with Student G o v e r n m e n t
Council in order to resolve dif-
ferences in drafts of the pro-
posed Regents bylaws approved
by SOC and by Senate Assem-
SACUA is the executive com-
-mittee of the Assembly.
SGC approved the proposed
bylaw draft last week, but also

ficient agreement exists to war-
rant sending the draft to the
Regents anyway.
The major disagreement be-
tween the two groups concerns
section 7.07 of the proposed by-
laws, which deals with student
conducthstandards related to
academic activities.
Specifically SGC citeci sec-
tions 7.09 (1) and (3) as un-
acceptable. These sections give
the faculties of the schools and
colleges the authority to set
standards for and determine
curriculum, levels of compe-

policy board tighter control over
the vice president for student
services (now vice president for
student affairs), requiring the
vice president to follow and ex-
ecute its' decisions.
This amendment relates to a
current controversy b e t w e e n
SGC and the administration.
SGC is demanding that the poli-
cy board be given power to man-
date the vice president to sup-

One administrator, to be ap-
pointed, will sit in on the meet-
ings with no vote. According to
Payne, "This will help both sides
to become better informed."
Marc Van Der Hout, SGC ex-
ecutive vice president, said that
"both sides will have to be flex-
ible" in discussing the amend-
ments. However, Knauss said he
was confident there would not
be much disagreement except in
the area of committee structure.
He said he hoped the commnittee

RECALL member John Bowers
said that a research committee is
working on finding out facts about
Harvey previously not made pub-
1ic. He said a brochure containing
this data should be printed with-
in the next few weeks.
Dr. Edward Pierce, a past Ann
Arbor Democratic Party chairman
and present member of its execu-
tive board, is trying to convince
the party to take a stand on the
issue. Pierce believes that the
party will support RECALL.
Bowers said that RECALL needs
students to work on the drive be-
cause most people working on the
campaign have jobs which take
top priority and keep them away
from the drive. He believes stu-
dent support could give the move-
ment the momentum it needs.
