D ean Attacks
Stor on Sex,
Sits Writer
The Daily Pennsylvanian, stu-
dent newspaper at the University
of Pennsylvania, faces possible
disciplinary action because of an
article which the school's Dean
of Men recently called "one of the
worst examples of what I would
say borders on pornography I've
ever seen."
The article's inspiration was a
proposal by the Women's Student
Government Association favoring
the abolishment of the present
2:00 a.m. curfew for senior women.
The article, a personal views
column titled 'Sex and the Single
Dean' and signed by one of the
paper's city editors, Roger Tauss,
expressed support for the WSGA
proposal " and went on to attack
the manner in which the Dean of
Women's Office exercises its au-
'Several Comments'
Tauss also included several
comments about virginity, dating,
and extramarital intercourse. The
tone . of these remarks has been
called into question and is in a
large part responsible for the pa-
per's difficulties with the admin-
What action, if any, the admin-
istrataion will take is not certain.
The matter will be considered
Wednesday at a meeting of The
Undergraduate P u blic a to ns
Board, a newly formed body re-]
sponsible to some extent for the
newspaper. The Wednesday meet-
ing was scheduled prior to the
Tauss article.
This board has the authority to
establish an Ad Hoc jDisciplinary
Committee that would investigate
the matter and take action that it
deems appropriate.
This action could include the
removal of Tauss from his position
on the paper. Marc Ross, Manag-
ing Editor of The Daily Pennsyl-
vanian, said that such a step
would infringe on the rights of a
free press.
Ross expressed hope that no
committee will be established at
the Wednesday meeting. However,
he said that if a committee is
formed, it will indicate faculty
sentiment against the paper and
that severe action against Tauss
would then become a stron pos-
He emphasized that the paper
itself could not be suspended un-
der present regulations. The Daily
Pennsylvanian was forced to cease
publication for four days in 1962
by faculty order. This suspension
was criticized at the time, and
policy has since been changed to
prevent a recurrence.
Against Article
General campus opinion has
been against the Tauss article.
Letters printed in The Daily Penn-
sylvanian have accused Tauss of
misinterpreting the motives of the
WSGA proposal, unwarrentedly
attacking the Dean of Women,
and using extreme and unneces-
sary vulgarity.
Ross said, however, that letters
received by the paper have for the
most part, opposed disciplinary

print the article, he remarked that

the Daily Pennsylvanian staff felt
that the column was an honest
criticism of administrative policy
and was in no way personally
slanderous against the Dean of

Ann Arbor's Human Relations Commission received approval
from city council last night to appoint a Detroit social worker as

Also at last night's council meeting, a proposed amendment to

Group Plans
A 24-man bipartisan committee
in the House is busy drafting
amendments to the new Constitu-

group's main purpose is to amend
those parts of the Constitution
which are in conflict with the
present political set-up in the
Amon the changes proposed by
the group are removal of prohibi-

No Income Tax
One of the major changes the
unofficial committee proposes is
the elimination of the Constitu-
tion's prohibition of a raduated in-
come tax by striking all reference
to an income tax from the docu-
A two-thirds vote is necessary
in both houses for an amendment
to be presented to the people.
Handy said that bipartisan sup-
port is therefore necessary, but
that there would be "no prob-
lems involved" in getting it.
Although there is not a compar-
able committee in the Senate,
Handy said that "the Senate
knows what we're doing and is
ready to cooperate with us."
The bills containing the amend-
ments will have to be passed by
Feb. 28 in order to be placed on

Romney's building program also

buildings, with a total .value of
about $61 million.

University Vice-President for
Business and Finance Wilbur K.
Pierpont said he did not know now
what projects requested by the
University would be included in
the list. Romney will detail the
program in his budget message to
the Legislature tomorrow.
The $51 million construction
program is $15 million more than
ever spent before in a single year
for construction. If the entire
Romney program is carried out by
the Legislature, it wl total $ 9
milion ove se' ears.
The entire. program would b

Not Bonding
Pierpont said that bonding was
never planned for library or class-
room buildings anyway, and that
dormitory facilities and other con-
struction would not be affected by
the plan.
Romney said that using the pay-
as-you-go approach saves well
over $100 million in bonding osts
for his entire construction plan.
"Michigan's program assures a
dollar's worth of building for every
dollar spent," he said.
"I know of no state doing more
for fewer taxpayer dollars in this
vital area than Michigan under
our pay-as-you-go program."

The University has lost three
members of its faculty to the staffs
of other institutions, it was an-

A larger salary and higher po-
sition has led Stanley R. Levy of

H. Robertson to accept a post at
Cornell University. As associate
dean of students there, Levy will
be primarily concerned with the
student government. He leaves the

special studies at the University

of California at Irvine.
In 1962, Dr. Gerard became the
second person in the 400 year his-
tory of the University of Leyden,
The Netherlands, to receive an
honorarydegree of medicine from
that institution.
Another member of the Medical
School faculty, Dr. Marion De-
