Unaninous Decision
Amends Bylaw 1.02
'U' Administration Arranges
For Public Accommodations
By MICHAEL HARRAH
Without a dissenting vote, the Regents yesterday decided to open
their meetings to the public for the first time in history.
Offering the motion to amend the Bylaws to allow open sessions,
Regent Donald M. Thurber of Grosse Pointe said that "the matter
has been under discussion for some time, and it now seems appropriate
to extend the same privilege to the public which the press has enjoyed

Protests

Army Chief
Resigns Post
In Argentina
BUENOS AIRES A)--Army Sec-
retary Bartolme Carrera resigned
early today after a strategic army
garrison rebelled and threw its
support to President Jose Maria
Guido.
Military leaders who ousted Ar-
turo Frondizi as president last
month were pressuring Guido to
take stern executive action against
Peronists.
Civilians Resign
Civilian members of Guido's
cabinet were reported to have
tendered their resignations to give
the President a free hand for a
cabinet shakeup he announced last
night. This was regarded as a
move to strengthen Guido's stand
against anti - Peronist military
leaders.
The reports said, however, Giudo
did not immediately accept any
resignations except Gen. Carrera's.
A proclamation issuIed by the
rebels said it represented the
thinking of the army commanders
there on recent turns in the Ar-
gentine crisis.
Oppose Peronists
However, the proclamation said
they opposed Peronists in public
office and made clear the officers
did not want Frondizi to return
to power.
Reports brew that the rebels
in Campo de Mayo were winning
support from other army units.
Leaders of the Campo de Mayo
group' apparently were Gen. En-
rique Rauch, commander of the
cavalry corps, and Gen. Carlos
Augusto Caro, commander of the
cavalry instruction center.
"Campo de Mayo is ready to
fight for the full rule of the con-
stitution and democracy," Gen.
Caro told newsmen.
Most Powerful
The garrison is the most power-
ful military installation in Argen-
tina. Traditionally, the army cav-
alry has been linked with nation-
alist movements. Some officers
there said tonight they preferred
to be called members of a "na-
tional movement" as distinguished
from nationalistic.
Top military leaders have been
pressuring Guido for decrees that
would nullify Peronist victories
and set the stage for a Presidential
election.
Guido's office said in a com-
munique earlier the President had
promised to call new elections and
had decided to reshuffle his cabi-
net. In the fisrt move economy
minister Federico Pinedo, a con-
servative anti-Peronist, announced
his resignation.
There were no noticeable troop
movements around this capital.
But soldiers previously had been
confined to barracks.
Campo De Mayo
In this capital, one military
source called the Campo De Mayo
proclamation a "plain subversion
against discipline and the author-
ities.
As the army developments un-
folded, there were meetings of high
officers in the Navy and Air
Force.
Top naval sources said there
was absolutely no truth to re-
ports that a similar move was
threatened in the Navy.
The communique from Guido's
office said he pledged to call the
election in the shortest possible
time

during the last eight years." He
proposed to amend Bylaw 1.02,
Place of Meeting, to read: "All
formal sessions shall be open to
the public."
Immediate Effect
Secretary of the University Erich
A. Walter informed the Board that
should the motion be approved it
would take effect immediately.
Director of University Relations
Michael K. Radock outlined the
regulations that will govern pub-
lic attendance.
A pass, issued by Un'iversity Re-
lations at least a day in advance,
will be required for all meetings,
and interested individuals will be
expected to arrive promptly and
stay throughout the session. The
meetings will continue to be held
in the Regents Room. The public
will not be allowed to participate.
Maintain Decorum
Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann
Arbor stressed that guests will have
to maintain the present decorum
of the meetings, and said that it
was "only common sense" to limit
capacity. Radock presently pro-
poses to admit only about 40-50,
an amount that can be "comfort-
ably accommodated."
Regent Irene L. Murphy of
Birmingham protested that the
proposed regulations for open ses-
sions were ."reluctant and nega-
tive. I would like to something
more positive," she said.
Regent Carl Brablec of Rose-
ville concurred that "perhaps
thirty days should be taken to
study this matter."
But Regent Thurber was adam-
ant. "I think the regulations as
proposed by the administration are
well-thought and positive. We
would have little trouble putting
them into immediate effect."
Commenting on the action af-
terwards, University President
Harlan Hatcher noted that the
trend among governing boards
about the country is to open the
meetings to the public, and he said
that he felt it would "work well."
Tax Deadlock,
In other action, President
Hatcher informed the Board that
he was "pleased at the effort Sen.
Frank D. Beadle (R-St. Clair) is
making to break the tax dead-
lock," and he said that he was
hopeful that the University would
be appraised of its appropriation
for the coming year during the
first week in May.
He reserved the approval to call
the Board into special session to
take any action that might be
necessary on the matter of finan-
ces before the next regular meet-
ing May 18.
Detroit Press Hit
By Work Dispute
DETROIT U)-New work stop-
pages by craft union members yes-
terday foiled the plans of this
city's two major daily newspapers
to resume publication following
settlement of a contract dispute
with the Teamsters Union.

nNew Edi1tors
In an appointments session more heated than any In
recent memory, The Board in Control of Student Publications
last night overruled major recommendations by the present
senior editors "of The Daily.
Tlle senior editorial staff, whose term of office officially
ends in June, resigned in protest this morning. The business
and sports staffs were not in- "-

volved.
The Board's controversial action
was in two parts:
. It changed three of seven
recommendations for appoint-
ments.
0 It re-structured the staff,
choosing two Co-Editorial Direc-
tors in place of the traditional set-
up of Editorial Director and As-
sociate Editorial Director.
The procedure for appointments
was in three basic steps:
A committee of the Board con-
cerned with The Daily interviewed
eight petitioners Wednesday night.
Prior to this meeting, Daily Edi-
tor John Roberts, '62, gave an
hour-long presentation of the ra-
tionale for his staff's unanimous
recommendations.
Last night, the full Board con-
sidered the proposals of The Daily
committee and made its decisions.
The Board's move was thus based
on formal petitions and inter-
views, plus the group's knowledge
of the newspaper from a non-
operative point of view.

The Board has final auttiority
for the newspaper, but does not
in practice direct its staff, its edi-
torial policy or other phases of
day-to-day publication. However,
it sets ground rules for the opera-
tion of the publication and makes
all appointments to staff positions.
In a senior editorial announc-
ing their resignation, the senior
editors said the Board was un-
justified in overturning the resig-
nations. They contrasted their
long appointments deliberation
with the Board's action, which
they called hasty and superficial.
They said the action contradict-
ed the principle that students are
sufficiently responsible to run a
newspaper, and called the action
a vote of no confidence in their
staff.
As the paper went to press this
morning at 3 a.m., Board Chair-
man Prof. Olin D. Browder was
in conference with the newly-
appointed senior staff and not
available for comment.

DAILY APPOINTMENTS--Michael Olinick (upper left) and Lee Sclar (upper right) were last night appointed as Daily Editor and busi-
ness manager, respectively, by the Board in Control of Student Publications. Other senior appointments made by the Board to The
Daily's editorial and business staffs included (from left to right) Michael Harrah, city editor; Judith Oppenheim and Caroline Dow, co-
editorial directors; and Thomas Bennett, advertising manager.

AnEditorial 4©{
THE MICHIGAN DAILY is founded on a principle-the
principle that students, given proper training and guid.
ance, can be trusted to manage a great newspaper with
maturity, responsibility and good sense. In defense of that
principle-in full knowledge of the gravity of our actions-
we, the Senior Editors of 1962 must resign.
The relation of the Board in Control of Student Publica-
tions to the student staff of The Michigan Daily is an
ambiguous and delicate one. The Board has ultimate and
absolute authority. But at no time in the history of The
Daily has it sought to impose prior censorship, and indeed
The Daily's record of untrammeled editorial freedom can
be matched by few other college newspapers. The .Board's
function in regard to appointment of senior editors has
always been more active, however. The Board has never dele-
gated this power.
Nevertheless over the years the outgoing staff of senior
editors have come to exert a powerful and wholly justifiable
influence on appointments. After long hours of discussion
and contemplation, the senior staff submits a set of recom
mendations to the Board. These have always figured promin-
ently in the decision of the Board; in recent years they have
been accepted without change.
THIS YEAR the Senior Editors went to especially great
pains to insure that the recommendations were sound. We
have, of course, known and worked with the petitioning juniors
for two and three years. As seniors, we have observed them
from a particularly critical vantage point. Since the beginning
of the semester we have spent literally hundreds of hours
discussing appointments. In addition, the Editor, City Editor
and Editorial Director formally interviewed every petitioning
junior for about one and one-half hours each. Our final
decision was unanimous.
The Board in Control, in contrast, dealt with the solemn
responsibility of aopointments hastily and superficially. Its
sole contact with the junior staff was a fifteen minute inter-
view with each petitioner, tlus written petitions and scrap-
books. Some members of the Board did not know the first
name or ever the sex of the juniors: at least one did not know
the structure of the senior staff. After only a few hours of
0-.sson. the Bos,-d -nroTed a. slate of nonointments which
differed imnortantly from the seniors' recommendations.
ITUCH IS MADE of the need for responsibility on the
part of students on The Daily, and students are quite
properly checked by the ultimate authority of the Board in
Control. But who will guard that self-same guardian? When
the Board in Control behaves irresponsibly, taking actions
which are not in the best interests of The Daily, students
