House bill P' shes
aid cut to rotesters
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
The House of Representatives yesterday wrote into a
federal appropriations bill a provision designed to spur college
administrators to take firm action against student demon-
strators.
The amendment, proposed by Rep. William Scherle (R-Iowa)
and passed by a 329 to 61 roll call vote, would prohibit the use of
federal interest subsidies to higher education institutions which do
not comply with a 1968 law aimed at student demonstrators.
The 1968 law basically requires that if a student is found, fol-
lowing a hearing-by school authorities, to have been convicted of a
crime or to have seriously violated a sclhool regulation or to have pre-
vented other students from engaging in studies, the student should be
ineligible for federal student loans.
However, there is no known case in which college officials have
reported student demonstrators to the federal government with a
request to cut aid. r
Scherle called the amendment a move to "put a little starch in
the backbone of weak-kneed administrators."
The bill in which it was included would provide $3.9 million for
federal subsidies of interest rates which universities pay on construc-
tion loans taken from banks and private companies. The Scherle
amendment threatens to cut only such federal interest subsidies.
'Vice .President and Chief Financial Officer Wilbur K. Pierpont
last night said the University does not presently receive any such
subsidies and that none are being negotiated. He noted that this type
of subsidy was relatively new and said he did not know of any schools
which were receiving money under the arrangement.
Pierpont noted that the University does have a federal loan for
construction of the Harlan Hatcher Graduate Library. But, in its
present form at least, the Scherle amendment would not affect such
loans.
Scherle told the House some colleges apparently do not believe
compliance with the 1968 law is mandatory.

demonstrates that the rent strike
is broad based and has the student
body's support."
A Tenants' Union spokesman at
the meeting last night explained
that the decision to allow SGC to
act as-a co-defendant is wholly up
to the presiding judge..
The spokesman indicated that
the judge would most likely not
allow SGC to serve as co-defend-
ant on grounds of convenience,
claiming that SGC's entrance into
the case would complicate and
delay litigation procedures.
If SGC was admitted as a co-
defendant, SGC could be held
liable for part of the $300,000
in punitive damages sought by the
landlords. Individual members of
SGC could also be held liable on
an individual basis.
However, the landlords could
not sue SGC directly. SGC has
no legal existence and the Regents
might be held liable for the dam-
ages. SGC funds, for example al-
ways reside in University accounts.
In other action, Council decided
to study a controversial provision
in the proposed regental bylaws
on student discipline.
The provision, which allows pro-
fessional schools to set conduct!
standards for students consistent
with requirements for licensing in
the field, has drawn heavy oppo-
sition from some SGC members.
Mike Davis, a member of the ad
hoc committee drafting the by-
laws, told Council that deletion of
the controversial provision would
probably cause the faculty of the
Medical School to withdraw sup-:
port for the bylaws.
Without this support, Davis
said, the bylaws could not pass
Senate Assembly. Architects of the
bylaws say the proposal will not
go to the Regents until it has the
support of both SGC and Senate
Assembly.
Davis also asked SGC not to act
on the bylaws until after the June
16 Assembly meeting. But Van
Der Hout said SGC action would
probably come before then so it
would test faculty reaction to
dropping the controversial provi-
sion.

Burgeradvocate"
of 'law and order'
WASHINGTON (M) - President Nixon reached into the
federal judiciary last night and nominated Warren Earl Bur-
ger, a relatively obscure federal appeals court judge, to be 15th
chief justice of the United States.
The white-haired, 61-year-old Minnesotan, who has sat
for 13 years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of
Columbia, is considered a "hardliner" on criminals and a
staunch advocate of "law and order."
If the Senate confirms the nomination after what may
prove to, be the closest scrutiny ever given a Supreme Court
Appointee, Burger will succeed Earl Warren in the highest
judicial seat in the land.
Warren is retiring next month at age 78 after 16 turbu-
lent years as chief justice -

But the' timing of the appoint-
ment of a new chief justice -
when Nixon could have waited un-

shadow to some degree the temp-
est created when Justice Abe For-
tas resigned last week under crit-
icism for his off-the-court finan-

TWO-DAY LUNAR ORBIT

SPACE CENTER, Houston (P)-Apollo
10 astronauts rocketed yesterday into a
perilous 2 -day orbit of the moon.
They saw the lunar surface as a place
of strange lights and volcanoes but easily
found landmarks other space men will use
to land there in July.
"The color looks like a brownish gray
to us," radioed Navy Cmdr. John W. Young
minutes after Apollo 10 reappeared from
its first pass behind the moon.
"We can pick out a couple of good little
volcanoes," said Air Force Col. Thomas
P. Stafford.
As the spacecraft passed into the lunar
night, Cernan said it was orbiting "right
down the Apollo trench"-the term for a
series of landmarks leading up to the land-

support of the Berkeley demon-
strators
At the Los. Angeles campus,
nearly 1200 chantingdemonstra-
tors moved into the administra-
tion building for a peaceful protest
of the death of non-student James
Rector at Berkeley. No offices
were entered and UCLA officials
said the protesters could stay.
Some 80 miles to the south, at
the Santa Cruz campus, about 500
students voted to call a two-day
strike on Monday and Tuesday at
all nine UC campuses.
They demanded -removal of the
Guard and police from Berkeley,
amnesty for all persons arrested,
payment for injuries, and called
for two days of mourning for
Rector.
At the San Diego campus,' 60
students voted to go on strike.
Classes were reported to have
continued normally.
Meanwhile 26 Berkeley faculty
members went to Sacramento to
meet with Gov. Ronald Reagan.
Led by Nobel prize winning
physicist Owen Chamberlain, they
told Reagan that 177 faculty
members have already signed a
petition saying they are not will-
ing to teach until the police and
troops are removed.
Reagan, however, said yesterday
that he has no plans for, immed-
iate removal of the 2,260 Guards-
men at Berkeley.
Reagan and the faculty mem-
bers engaged in a shouting debate
in his office. The governor banged

made a serpentine march around
campus buildings. There are about
27,000 students on the Berkeley

Some marchers picked up rocks
along the way, but others made
them drop the missiles.
About 30 faculty members led

and shouts of "we want the park."

review
By JUDY SARASOHN
A group of some 56 con-
cerned citizens last nighty
called for civilian review of
city police in the wake of the
arrest and striking of Human
Relations Commission staff
worker Ray Chauncey while
on assignment.
The group elected a five-mem-
ber steering committee to setup a
public hearing with Mayor Robert
Harris in order to begin establish-
ing a civilian police review board.
"We have a situation where the
police are investigating the police
with only the police knowing the
results of that investigation," said
Dennis Sinclair, organizer of the
meeting. "We want to change the
structure."
Most of the members of the ad
hoc group came from the com-
munity in general. Some faculty
members -were, present, along with
several students.f
Additional suggestions for re-
view -of police were also consider-
ed. HRC director David Cowley
explained that civilian boards have
not been altogether successful.
"Many black communities have not
been satisifed with them," he said.
Cowley suggested the possibility
of better techniques of police re-
view, such -as hiring attorneys on
a 24-hour basis to be at the police
station to review immediately any
charges of mistreatment.
Other suggestions were a public
defender, laws restricting possible
police abuse, and a'larger number
of HRC investigators.
"No policeman could be sure if
he had a Ray Chauncey," one
woman explained.

Hearings on the proposed state
student voting bill will be held
today by the State Senate Ap-
propriations Committee.
Co-sponsor of the bill, Senate
Minority Leader Sander Levin (D-
Berkley) will testify before the
committee in behalf of the bill.
Levin will present testimony
from both election officials and
college students:
Ann Arbor City Clerk John
Bentley will be present at the
hearings. "I'm basically in favor
of the bill," he said, "but I have
some reservations about the word-
;"" 1

The bill was sent to the ap-
propriations committee last week
because some legislators claimed
"it could affect out-of-state tuition
payments because of residency/re-
quirements."
However, Levin argued that it
has no fiscal implications and
should not be bottled up in the ap-
propriations committee.
The measure was referred to
committee by a narrow 16-14 vote.
"This bill concerns voter reg-
istration laws-not tuition laws,"
Levin argued. "If we do not fairly
and promptly open up the political
channels to students who meet age
qualfications, we must share some
