Issue of Great Britain
This issue, and the question of
whether Britain should be invited
to sit on current political negotia-

ministers of the six countries held
last month in Paris.
The ministers said then they

presence in Athens to continue dis-
cussions on the problem which pit-
ted Belgium and Tihe Netherlands
against France, West Germany,
Italy, and Luxembourg.
To Meet Again
However, the six ministers will

don on Britain's possible entry into

Define NSA Functions
The presidents, expressing con-
fidence that NSA can advance the
welfare of college students, also
stated that they believe, "the pri-
mar'y function of NSA 'is to pro-
vide worthwhile service programs
on the local, regional, national and
iernational levies.".
The resolution said, however,
that NSA's service function need
not detract from its vital but over-
emphasized task of expressing
student opinion.
"It is our intention to re-evalu-
ate periedlically our participation
in NSA," the resolution coneluded.
Discrimination Exchange
The presidents also approved a
plan to exchange Information on
discrimination policies, student
services, the student's role in pol-
icy making, recognition of student
organizations, student judiciaries,
policies on women's hours and
NSA services.
Student body presidents attend-
ing the conference were Michael

Two Sessions '
They met along with other dele-
gates in the morning to discuss
several topics of student concern.
In the afternoon, they held a
closed session during which the
resolutions were passed, while the
rest of the delegates continued
discussions in another room.
In the morning session, there
was a consensus that, in most
cases, regulation of speakers and
speeches is detrimental to an aca-
demic community and ought to
be eliminated.
Two delegates pointed out that
their schools, Minnesota and SUI,
have no policy limiting those who'
tnay speak at the institution.
Speaker Bans
At OSU, Gross said, a civil lib-
erties union speaker was sched-
uled, but the president postponed
the speech {Indefinitely. Student
government is protesting this ac-
tion, and the faculty has set a
meeting with a vice-president to
discuss the issue.
Turning to another area, all of
the delegates supported in theory
a plan whereby a student paying
in-state fees at one Big Ten insti-
tution would be able to spend his
junior year at another school in
the Big Ten without having to pay
a higher tuition. Exchange of stu-
dents would be reciprocal.
This would reduce the economic
barrier facing students who wish
to attend another school for a
year to take specialized courses in
in theirs field of concentration
or wish to take classes from cer-
tamn professors.

...attacks Republicans

DETROIT (P)-Vowing to expose
what he termed "the disgraceful
Republican record of obstruction-
ism and reaction,'' Gov. John B.
Swainson declared formally last
night his intention to seek re-
election this year. -
Swainson's decision, which had
been anticipated, was announce d
in a fiery Jefferson-Jackson Day
speech in which he told a gather-
ing of Michigan Democrats:
"The record proves that the
GOP (in Michigan) has been and is
today a cabal of unreconstructed
reactionaries, a band of economic
freebooters, wvhich has throttled
progress, cut into the vitals of
democracy in Michigan and chok-
ed every constructive effort to
solve the problems facing us."
Swainson said .he did not know
what the product of the state's
current constitutional convention
will be, but added:
"I would like to go on record
at this time to assert that if the
convention does not produce a just
and fair reapportionment of our
state legislative districts, I will
do all in my power to see to ft
that the document is rejected by
the people of Michigan.
"I would do this reluctantly,
but I would do it in the knowledge
that unless we return government
to the voters, we will have avoided
the crucial challenge facing us.

gates are expected to take their
final vote on the proposed com-
pleted document Friday and mi-
nority Democrats may object to
its approval. .
The convention will begins the
third reading of the proposed doc-
ument's 12 articies tomorrow and
plan to spend three days on it.
The draft will be sent Thursday

sion for separate approval of sec-
tions by voters accepted by the

The convention hopes to adjourn
until Aug. 1 when they will re-

"Delegates have done a ter-

have devoted considerable time
and effort and have come up with
a good constitution."
