(Continued from Page 1)
President Frieze had quietly
stepped out. I
* * *
THE ANGELL administration,
saw many Michigan firsts.
President Angell started right
out by reminding friends and
alumni that the University
could only be great if it had
enough money. And he pointed
.out that the University de-
pended entirely on the state
for every cent-a state yhich,
he implied, hadn't in the past
been any too reliable. Of course,
the money poured in.
He saw the introduction of
football and baseball; he ini-
tiated a full-range of electives
to streamline the tedious un-
dergraduate program; and he
introduced the "faculty advi-
sor" to "bring reason and me-.
thod to the fantastic schedules
undergraduates dream up for
And as the alumni opened up
purses, the Legislature wasn't
going to be outdone, and it
responded too. Students grad-
ually ceased commencing the
day with fist fights at chapel,
and new buildings went up all
over campus.
In 1880, President Ruther-
ford B. Hayes selected Presi-
dent Angell to head a United
States mission to China to re-
vise, the Burlingame Treaty. He
was gone a year and a half,
and-in his absense, the Univer-
sity once again was guided
under the hand of Henry Sim-
mons Frieze, who found the
situation just as he'd left it:
the homeopaths and the al-
lopaths were at it again.
About this time, the first
joyed the absence of dormi-
sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta,
made it appearance on campus,
where fraternities had long en-
tories, and President Frieze
found the fraternities some-
what intolerant of their sister
societies. As he did when he,
admitted the first woman, how-
ever, Frieze had made it clear
that sororities were just as wel-
come as fraternities (though he;
didn't say just how welcome
that was), and sororities ar-
rived for good.
* * *.
died of old age in 1889., Presi-
dent Angell delivered the me-
mnorial address, and the first

state funeral ever held at the
University saw him buried in
Forest Lawn Cemetary.
After 20 years as president,
the man from Vermont had
fallen into a rut. He had be-
come mechanical; the faculty
bypassed him whenever possible
and took the problems to the
Secretary of the University. He
fought it for many years, but
in the end he saw that he need-
ed a change of scenery. So he
accepted an appointment from
President William McKinley in
1897 to become minister to Tur-
The University rested in the
hands of Harry Burns Hutch-
ins, dean of the Law School.
President Angell returned to
celebrate a quarter century
with the University. He re-
turned to see the dynamic rise
of Fielding H. Yost and Mich-
igan's Wolverines. And he saw
the enrollment roster rise to
5500 spread through seven de-
partments and schools. He saw
a library rise in the center of
the "Diag," which was by this
time sporting its criss-cross
walkways. He returned to the
construction of new dormi-
tories. the original Union build-
ing, and his pride, Alumni
Memorial Hall, where he housed
the prized art collections of the
late Dr. Frieze.
And he returned to finish
his tenure of office, only 10
years of which remained. When
he finally stepped down, he
was 80 years old. In 1903, the
death of Mrs. Sarah Caswell
Angell, his beloved wife, slowed
his pace. He knew .he must
draw his tenure to a close.
HE RETIRED in 1909, to live
the rest of his life in the house
where he had spent 38 years,
rocking in a chair by thetpar-
lor window, looking out on
South University. His successor,
who was chosen quicklyand
without dissent, refused to have
him evicted, preferring to live
He died in 1916, in the house
where President Harlan
Hatcher lives today, almost
a half-century after coming to
Ann Arbor, and of him then
his son wrote: "He gave the
University a leadership which
few men could have offered."
Under James Burrill Angell,
the University grew up.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
is thertext of a report sub:itted by
the Credentials and RulES Commit-
tee to Student Government Council
Friday. Committee members are
Richard Noh, '62BAd, chairman;
Thomas Brown, 63, Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, Robert Ross, '63, Sharon
Jeffrey, '63, Thomas Moch, '62, and
Brian Glick, 62. Capitalized words
within the report followthe style
set by the committee.
Section 1: Statement Concern-
ing the Disqualification of Can-
I) On March 19, 1962, the com-
mittee took the following action:
a) The committee voted to dis-
qualify Stanley Lubin, '63, for vio-
lation of the election rule which
states that "Candidates must cir-
culate their petitions personally,"
and that "All candidates shall ad-
here to the rules concerning solica-
tion of signatures in the residence
halls, permission for this to be
negotiated by the Elections Direc-
tor wit hthe proper residence halls
authorities," and further directed
that Lubin's name should be
struck from the ballot.
On March 20, 1962, the Commit-
tee took the following actions:
a) (First meeting, 5-6:30 p.m.)
The committee voted to disqualify
Katy Ford, '64, for violation of
the election rule which states that
"Candidates must circulate their
petitions personally," and further
directed that Miss Ford's name be
struck from the ballot. The com-
mittee considered but rejected a
proposal to invalidate the current
election. The committee recom-
mended that the present election
rules and procedures be re-
examined by Student Government
Council. The committee censured
its agent John Martin, '62, for his
role in the violation of petition
and election rules in the case of
Miss Ford.
b) (Second meeting, 11-2 a.m.)
The committee received a com-
plaint of an alleged violation by
Larry Monberg, '63, of the elec-
tion rule which states, "Candidates
shall not circulate their petitions
in classes, libraries, the Michigan
Union, or meal lines in Univer-
sity residence halls unless speci-
fied permission is granted, this
permission to be negotiated by the
Elections Director." While the
committee found a violation, it
believed that Monberg satisfac-
torily completed requirements set
by the Elections Director. to rec-
tify that violation, and therefore
imposed no penalty.
II) The committee believed it
obligatory to disqualify candidates
when, and only when, evidence
brought before it clearly demon-
strated that:
a) A candidate deliberately
violated a petition or election rule
with knowledge of that rule; or
b) A candidate violated a rule
either accidentally or without
knowledge of the rule and did not,
once he knew of his violation, re-
port it to an election official for
the purpose of following proce-
dures which that official states
would legally rectify the violation.
1) Lubin deliberately violated a
rule with knowledge of the rule
and did not report his violation to
any election official.
2) Miss Ford's violation was
committed deliberately and with
knowledge of the violated rule.
Although she acted with the know-
ledge and aid of an election of-
ficial, by the end of the petition-

ing period she had not brought
her violation to the attention of
,an election official for the purpose
of legally rectifying the violation.
MARCH 20, 1962, Monberg violat-
ed a rule WITHOUT knowledge of
that rule. Once he had knowledge
of the violation, he reported the
violation to an election official,
was told by that official that he
could legally rectify his violation
if he followed certain procedures,
and he did follow those procedures.
III) On the basis of the com-
mittee's knowledge of each case, it
believes that it applied uniform
criteria in all cases brought be-
Section 2: Certification of the
The committee believes that the
SGOC elections should NOT be in-
validated. Considering such a
measure to be neither in the public
interest, nor called for by the facts
at its command, the committee
states its position because of the
widespread rumors and charges
that have substantially distorted
public consideration of the entire
The committee believes that the
primary basis for the invalidation
of an entire election should be ex-
tensive irregualrities and/or frauds
in the election process itself. The
committee considered a number of
complaints concerning stuffed bal-
let boxes in the current election,
but has not been able to substan-
tiate any of these charges. Even
the number and character of the
ALLEGED irregularities, was far
short of that which would merit
invalidation of an entire election.
Together, they would not have
significantly distorted the election
The committee believes that ir-
regularities in the petitioning pro-.
cess are not of the same status
as irregularities in the election it-
self and do not merit invalidating
an entire election. The committee
believes this because it interprets
the petitioning process and rules
as the method by which a can-
didate secures the placement of
his naime on the ballot and other
election literature.
It has been argued in the last
few days that the low number and
quality of candidates-especially
after the disqualification of Miss
Ford and Lubin-should lead the
committee to recommend invalida-
tion of the elections. It should be
made clear, from this point on,
that the SGC Credentials and
Rules Committee is not charged
with securing the politically satis-
factory numbers or quality of
candidates. Nor is it charged with
judging the validity of petition
and election rules set by the Coun-
cil. On the contrary, it would be
an illegitimate use of the com-
mittee's authority if it were to
take upon itself to determine
which of the Council's rules it
should enforce and which it should
The Credentials and Rules Com-
mittee is charged with the admin-
istration of an election-one which
is conducted according to the rules
set by the Council, in which the
rules are administered fairly, and
in which violations of these rules
are dealt with while the Council
is not meeting.. Any other interpre-
tation of the committee's function
misconstrues a semi-judicial body
for an agent of political action.
The committee would further
point out that those who advocate
invalidation of the election because
of the loss of Council prestige
misconstrue the charge of the
Credentials and Rules Committee,
the proper grounds for invalidat-
ing an election, and the real ques-
tions of prestige involved. Prestige.
of the Council may suffer because
of the quality of its legislation, the
effectiveness of its administration,,

of the clarity of its communica-
It will surely fall if the Council
reverts to acting upon unsubstan-
tiated rumor, rather than uphoid-
ing the ground rules of its electo-
rial process. Many of the courses
of action prescribed for the corn-
mittee by certain parties would

have led the committee into great-
er violation of equity than that
of which these very parties- com-
If the committee had used its
authority to make its own political
judgment of the campaign, the
basic right of voters to choose
would have been eliminated.
Neither the committee nor the
Council has the right to over-
throw the natural electoral pro-
cesses because it feels that can-
didates are not satisfactory in
number or in quality.
The committee notes charges
that its action involving redistri-
bution of Miss Ford's ballots cast
on Tuesday March 20, 1962, con-
stituted an undemocratic disen-
franchisement of those who voted
for her. Any time a candidate is
penalized votes, voters are dis-
enfranchised; any time an elec-
tion is invalidated, voters are dis-
enfranchised. Those who voted for
Miss Ford on Tuesday had their
votes redistributed to candidates
of their next preference. The fact
that they were unable to vote for
her as a write-in candidate is
part of HER penalty. The Creden-
tials and Rules Committee did not
determine the time Miss Ford's
violation came before it (and
therefore the timing of her dis-
qualification); she did.
The committee has been charged
with applying a double standard
in imposing penalties on various
candidates about whom it heard
complaints. This is false, as this
entire report demonstrates. Ap-
parently, most of these charges
are based upon erroneous reports
and rumors circulated without Ie-
gard to facts.
Finally, the committee has
found no evidence to support the
rumor that Martin, though in-
volved in Miss Ford's violation of
petition rules, was responsible for
any other violations. Since the
committee has evidence of only
this one violation committed by
him, it believes invalidation of
the entire election because of NIar-
tin's former position as temporary
chairman of the committee would
be unjustified.
In short, the committee has been
sensitive to the demands for a
new election. It considered that
alternative throughout its deliber-
ations, but has not found proper
grounds to take such action.
Section 3 Seating of Candidates
I) At its meeting of March 20,
1962, the committee received a
complaint of an alleged Violation
by Monberg of petition rule 3,
which states ". . . Candidates
shall not circulate their petitions
in classes, libraries, the Michigan
Union, or meal lines in University
residence halls, unless specific per-
mission is granted, this permission
to be negotiated by the Elections
Director." At that time the com-
mittee found Mr. Monberg in vio-
lation of petition rule 3, but de-
clared "it believes that Monberg
satisfactorily completed require-
ments set by the Elections Direc-
tor to rectify that violation." The
committee therefore imposed no
penalty on Monberg,

At its meeting of March 22, 1962,
the committee received a com-!
plaint which claimed that Mon-
berg had submitted false informa-
tion to the Elections Director and
deliberately falsified his testimony
to the committee at its meeting of
March 20, 1962. On the basis of
a new hearing, the '.ommittee
a) Since the requirements set
by the Elections Director wcrt
based upon false information pre-

a candidate secures by filing a
legal petition-for example, the
right to have his name printed on
the ballot. The committee followed
this procedure in the cases con-
cerning Miss Ford and Lubin. It
was unable to follow it in Mon-
berg's case ONLY BECAUSE Mon-
berg testified falsely.
c) If the Council were to seat
Monberg, it would allow to go un-
penalized two instances of falsi-
fication of information and an
established and legally aot recti-
fied violation of its petition rules.
On the other hand, Miss Ford has
already been penalized.

ing of the Credentials and Rules
Committee. Minutes of the three
previous meetings are summarized
in the report.

The Credentials and Rules Com-
mittee announced that it is con-
tinuing its deliberations, and will
have a report prepared for pres-
entation to SGC at its meeting
Friday afternoon, March 23, at
4:15 p.m.
-Richard Nohl, Chairman
The committee received several
complaints from various parties
prior to the deadline for submis-.
sion of complaints previously set.
Those submitted after the dead-
line were not accepted, but may
be referred directly to SGC. Each
complaint received the individual
attention of the committee. The
various complaints and their dis-'
position are as follows:
A complaint was received stat-
ing that Mr'. Batlle had presented,
and a poll worker had accepted,
two ballots for the same election in
the Fishbowl on Tuesday. The
complaint was studied, six per-
sons were called to testify, but the
complaint was not substantiated.
Several complaints dealing with
a lack of availability of ballots
at several polling places in the
Board of Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics, Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications, Board of Direc-
tors of the Michigan Union, and
class officer elections, were re-
ferred to Joint Judiciary Council.
A complaint concerning a stu-
dent who had voted twice was
referred to Joint Judiciary Coun-
An investigation was conducted
regarding possible ballot stuffing
for Monberg at the Undegraduate
Library poll. Two poll workers were

interviewed. No evidence of ballot
stuffing was found.
The committee considered a
complaint that Monberg solicited
many more signatures in the
Union than he had previously tes-
tified tohaving solicited. (The
committee's disposition of this
complaint may be found in Sec-
tion 3 of the committee's report,
entitled "Seating of Candidates").
Another complaint was received
concerning Monberg's solicitation
of signatures in the Union: and in
his classes, and was not fully in-
vestigated due to the disposition of
the previously named complaint.
Three complaints were received
concerning candidates who were
not declared elected. Two con-
cerned the alleged illegal posters
in residence halls, and the third
concerned an announcement for
a candidate in a classroom by a
faculty member. Because the can-
didates involved were not elected,
the committee chose not to deal
with them further.
A complaint was received stating
that several of Monberg's posters
had been illegally placed in a
residence hall. The committee felt
the complaint could not be sub-
stantiated because it contained in-
sufficient facts, and that further
consideration was unnecessary as
explained above.
Some complaints were received
requesting the invalidatioh of the
entire SGC election. The commit-
tee has considered that alternative
throughout its deliberations and
rejected the proposal. (The com-
mittee's remarks on this question
may be found in Section 2 of the
committee's report, entitled "Cer-
tification of the Election.")
Financial statements of all
elected candidates were reviewed
again, but no irregularities were
The committee voted unani-
mously to include Miss Ford in its
recommendations;for the seating
of candidates for the Council.
(The committee's remark s on this
matter may be found in Section 3
of the committee's report, en-
titled "Seating of Candidates.")
The committee unanimously
voted to recommend to the Coun-
cil that it seat the following per-
sons for one year terms on HGC:
Kenneth Miller, Richard Q'sell,
Katherine Ford, Howard Abrams,
Fred Batlle.
The committee approved its
Report to Student Government

heads committee

sented to the Elections Director by
Monberg, the legal rectification
which Monberg previously claimed
was invalid.
b) Monberg deliberately falsi-
fied his testimony before the com-
mittee at its meeting of March 20.
It is on the basis of the above
considerations that the committee
does not recommened that the
Council seat Monberg.
II) To clarify the above decision,
the committee wishes to point out
the differences between Monberg 's
case and that of Miss Ford.
a) Monberg did not report his
violation to the committee and
when it was reported, TESTIFIED
FALSELY in order to avoid the
penalty imposed on Miss Ford.
Miss Ford reported her violation,
to the committee, TESTIFIED
HONESTLY, and had her name
stricken from the ballot.
b) The committee believes that
if violations of petition rules are
to be penalized, such penalties
should restrict the rights which

Peterson said the program,
which will begin next fall, will
help the rushees by requiring them
to visit at least eight houses, and
will also help small fraternities

He mentioned improved rela-
tions between IFC and Inter-

ed in speaker programs in the
quads during the first part of the,
fall with fraternity men providing
information on rushing procedures
and affiliate life in general.
This was the first year that IFC
ever supported candidates for Stu-
dent Government Council. Peter-
son said the interviewing sessions
helped to create much awareness
among fraternity men about the

more emphasis on service proj-
ects. "The committee was great-
