SGC Debates Rationale Issues sP. *nmiEiEnn


'The Carnegie Corporation is in-
terested in the advancement and
diffusion of knowledge and under-
standing among the people of the
United States. Naturally, as a re-
search institute at the University
we share this interest," Tannen-
baum continued.
"Today it is fashionable to be
a critic of social organizations. We
often hear the terms 'organization
man' and 'bureaucrat.'
Provide Order
"Organizations provide order-
a condition necessary for man to
produce abundantly and live se-
curely. Abundance and security in
turn create opportunities and
choice-conditions which form the
basis for human freedom. Yet so-
cial order itself requires conform-
ity and imposes limitations," he
"A general question with which
we are faced is how to create and
designorganizations to serve vital
functions, but still provide op-
portunities for members to express
their personalities."
The money from the grant will
be paid in three installments, the
first has already been received.
The next payment will be received
later this year and the last at the
end of 1963.
Social Phenomena
"Our interests lie in a number
of directions. We study organiza-

Notes Paradox
Inter-Quadrangle Council Presi-
dent Thomas Moch, '62E, noted a
paradox in the situation as it now
exists. Authority implied responsi-
bility, he explained, and in turn it
would seem responsibility would
imply authority. In the example of
the judicial system on campus,
students have the authority and
responsibility for enforcing rules,
but do not have the power to set
these rules.
Michigan Union President Paul
Carder, '62, explained that if "self-
reliance" was the goal of the in-
crease in authority, self-govern-
ment would not achieve it.
Students have been sheltered at
home and suddenly giving them
the power to govern themselves
will not work. Rather, in striving
for this goal ,the process should
be a gradual education in self-
John Martin, '62, noted that
SGC is having trouble adminis-
tering duties which it now holds.
To ask for more, therefore, would
not be practical.
Delegate Detail
League President Bea Nemlaha
argued that the general idea would
be to delegate administrative de-
tail to other groups if more au-"
thority were granted to the Coun-
cil. She also objected to the fear

that if students have responsibility
there would be a lessening of rules.
"We are all reflections of the
society from which we come and
we will reflect its standards. Yet,
we cannot continue to reflect the
ills of it, but must begin to give
students responsibility," she said.
Robert Ross, '63, viewed the
motion as a "first step" in solving
larger problems. He noted that
mass society and alienation were
due to a combination of things
and that public responsibility is
rare rather than the general rule.
Emphasizes Need
The increased size of the gov-
ernment has emphasized the need
for local government, he said. A
faculty-student government is not
totally attainable, but the fact
that we presently do not have a
meaningful government that
people can reach out to and be a
part of has created a negative
attitude toward government on the
part of the students. "They can't
be citizens in the structure as it
now exists, and therefore are not,"
he said.
G'Sell raised questions of prac-
ticality. He wondered if the stu-
dent body of the future would
agree with the rationale and
whether the students are capable
of performing a function now per-
formed by professional adminis-
Tom Brown, '63, noted that the
students whom he spoke with
about this motion had more con-
fidence in the administration than
in the students.
Blow from Public
The administration has to take
the blows from'the public and thus
should be between the students
and the Board of Regents, Vos ex-
Brian Glick argued that the
public would protest to the people
who were responsible, to the stu-

dents or SGC if they were the
ruling body.
He also raised other questions:
why should the University be in
the business of telling students
how they should live outside the
classroom and coercing them into
doing it? How does a student be-
come responsible when he is not
given responsibility? What kind
of a person comes out of a Univer-
sity where he cannot make his
own decisions based on his own
Large Say
Martin' countered that students
at the University do have a large
say and are not "coerced" into
doing things.
"The University is an institution
which we go up to but don't enter
into," Roberts explained. We are
submitted to parental control, but
it is different from this institu-
tional control."
Interfraternity President Robert
Peterson, '62, agreed with Martin
that students were not limited.
Ross dissented by saying the
decisions students are allowed to
make are personal decisions and
in debating government, "we must
consider common areas of concern,
not private compartmentalized is-
University Ideal
The problem that no one is
setting up an ideal of the univer-
sity and what students should be
doing within it was forwarded by
Sharon Jeffrey, '63. This should be
a function of the students.
Miss Nemlaha believed that stu-
dents must create the system
which will make a difference to
them. She explained that SGC as
it now is constructed does not
affect the individual student in
important areas.
As debate closed, she said, "I
am frightened that we have to
put this off to a future time."

He pointed out, however, that
the studies also include problems
of methodology and theory. This
covers the measurement of social
processes and observation methods.
"We are not now primarily con-
cerned with applying our data to
a specific organization. We are
more interested in the general
area of social organizations and
possibly making a contribution to
an understanding of social pro-
cesses," he continued
The studies will cover the many
variables within the general area
including the processes of con-
trol, decision making and the ef-
fects of these on the attitudes and
motivations of organization mem-
bers, he explained.
