Chairman of the Committee for
a Democratic Student Government
Kenneth Miller, '64, said that a
"handout printed in the Union the
night before and distributed to all
fraternities and sororities saying
vote no, protect your interests, was
influential in the vote."
The Committee had campaigned
for a strong "yes"~ vote.
Michigan Union President Rob-
ert Finke, '63, stated that he hoped
"the vote of confidence, even
though small, given to ex-officios
will encourage the new ex-officios
to take a real interest in SGC, as
has been the case in the past, by
and large."
Malvin Warwick, '63, vice-chair-
man of the committee, noted that
the "principal issue was whether
or not the conservative forces,
principally those of Interfraternity
Council, could continue to turn
out a preponderance of their po-
tential vote, without an overriding
issue or an outstanding personal-
Chairman of Voice Political Par-
ty Joseph Chabot, '63, added that
students had shown their sub-
servience to an organizational
structure, and a lack of concern
with democratic structure.
The results were first calculated
with an eight vote difference, 2,-
313 to 2305, and only with a re-
count did the conservatives cap-
ture a-victory. During the count
the vote showed a liberal lead for
most of the night.
Stockmeyer, adding to his re-
marks, said that the "no" vote,
plus an apparently moderate Coun-
cil meant that ex-officios would
be on SGC for the next few years

Hatcher To Meet u


Student Government Council
President Steven Stockmeyer, '63,
and five members of SGC's Human
Relations Board will meet with
University President Harlan
Hatcher at 4 p.m. today in an
effort to obtain a public state-
ment from the University urging
passage of the proposed Ann Arbor

fair housing ordinance.
The group also plans to re-
quest that a representative from
the University testify at the City
Council hearings on the ordinance
in order to explain the University's
position on the anti-descrimina-
tion law.
Stockmeyer will present the SGC
motion on the issue: The Univer-

Facult Petition onStand
Collects Over 12Q1Names
The faculty petition recommending that the University take a
stand on the proposed fair housing ordinances for Ann Arbor now has
121 signatures.
The petition, which began circulating last Thursday, says:
"We believe that the proposed housing legislation vitally affects
the University. Our world-wide prestige cannot but be affected by
the treatment accorded foreign

sity should support the legislation
as a part of the commitment
stated in Regents Bylaw 2.14.
The HRB called a student-fac-
ulty picket on Feb. 21 after Presi-
dent Hatcher did not reply to an
earlier letter requesting Univer-
sity support for the fair housing
HRB Chairman David Aroner,
'64, claimed that the purpose of
the demonstration was to show
the widespread concern for Uni-
versity action on this issue.
Since the demonstration various
students and professors have been
circulating a petition among fac-
ulty members encouraging Presi-
dent -Hatcher to take a stand on
'the issue.
Submit Resolutions
Student religious and interna-
tional groups have been contacted
and asked to submit resolutions to
President Hatcher.
The meeting with the HRB and
Stockmeyer was requested by
,President Hatcher Monday.
President Hatcher has said that
it is not the policy of the Univer-
sity "to dictate legislation" to the
local community. However, he has
expressed "sympathy" for the ob-
jectives of the picketers.

skin does not meet the standardsj
presently applied by some of our
community's citizens.
"We believe that the acceptance
of the principle of non-dictation
does not preclude University par-
ticipation in the formation of the
moral sense of the community."
The petition was circulated by
members of the Human Relations
Board and by faculty supporting
the HRB's stand. Those asking for
faculty signatures reported that
over 90 per cent of the faculty
members asked signed the peti-
David Aroner, '64, chairman of
the HRB, said that many faculty
had termed the petition "too mild"
and felt the last paragraph was
far too lenient toward the Uni-
versity. The paragraph commends
the administration for its concern
over fair housing for students and
staff, and for its efforts to com-
bat discrimination.,

681 To Win
On the first ballot with 583
votes needed to win, Knapp took
681 votes and Miss Miller polled
633. Michael Royer, '64, with 87
votes was dropped on the second
On an original first ballot count,
only Knapp showed enough votes
to win, but the error of dividing
the total vote by seven rather than
the required eight was discovered;
and Miss Miller was declared vic-
torious on the first ballot under
a revised quota.
On the second ballot Sasaki
needed 582 votes to win and took-
exactly that many. Sasaki was
declared a winner, only to be
ruled one vote short of the quota,
and then in a third and final
declaration cited a second ballot
No Winners
Third ballot totals saw Henry
Wallace, '64E, counted out of con-
sideration, with no candidate
gaining enough quota votes to
win. The fourth ballot elected no
Council members,.but dropped As-
sembly president Mary Beth Nor-
ton, '64, with 243 votes.
Voice candidates Howard
Abrams, '63, and Kenneth Miller,
'64, won on the fifth ballot.
Abrams took 639 votes, Miller 586;
574 votes were needed to win.
Michael Marston, '64L, was drop-
ped on the fifth ballot. Sixth bal-
lot totals saw Rhines, Rutherford
and Smithson still in the running
but none had enough votes to meet
the quota of 565.
Sixth Ballot
Sixth ballot voting saw no vic-
tors, but on the seventh ballot
Rhines, with 590 votes and Smith-
son, with a total of 556 were elect-
ed. John Rutherford, '64, was
dropped on the sixth ballot.
The total vote turnout was the
lightest since elections in spring,
1962, and compared with approxi-
mately 7000 last semester when
the referendum on membership in
the United States National Stu-
dent Association attracted voter
Three of five Voice candidates
won election. Abrams, Miller, and
Sasaki won while Miss Norton and
Wallace failed to win. Two candi-
dates strongly supported by the
fraternity system-Knapp and
Rhines-won on the first and last
ballots, respectively.
'Moderate Liberal'
Smithson, a resident of East
Quadrangle who declared himself
a "moderate liberal" in election
campaigning, also tallied enough
votes on the seventh ballot. Miss
Miller drew large support from the
dormitory system, particularly
Markley Hall where she lives.
Liberal leader Robert Ross, '63,
who predicted a victory for Voice
and liberals, said the election
showed that "you have to have an
issue which liberals consider con-
sequential in order to bring them
out to vote." Ross asserted that
the ex-officio referendum did not
promote liberal interest.
Ross also noted that the lib-
erals,, with Smithson counted in
that group, polled 60 per cent of
first place vote.
SGC President Steven Stock-
meyer, '63, said that "consider-
ing the overwhelming organiza-
tional campaign conducted by
Voice, they made a poor showing."'
Stockmeyer noted that "when
one considers the overall campus
vote and the vote on the ex-offi-
cio referendum, it is evident that

Boulding Cites Empathy
Among Christians, Jews
"The development of an empathy allowing one to imagine what
it is like to be a member of a culture other than his own is one of
the greatest achievements possible for mankind," Prof. Kenneth E.
Boulding of the economics department said last night.
Discussing "Cross-Cultural Communication Between Christian
and Jew" as the first of the Hillel series on "The Jew in Western

dustrial Rd. caused about $30,000

No public services will be dis-

equipment, used in maintaining
public water works, including a
crane and a pipe-laying truck.
"The big equipment probably es-

parts of the roof, the fire was
completely out after 50 minutes


dd Tabulation Plans Go Astray

The tabulations to determine the winners in yesterday's all
campus election started slowly at around 7 p.m.'in the Michigan
Union Ballroom and remained that way through most of the night.
There were great plans to speed up the tedious and complicated
procedure of counting the votes. However, from the beginning these
carefully laid plans were sabotaged by some unknown force. The
liberals blamed it on the conservatives and the conservatives blamed
it on the liberals.
In order to speed up the process of counting the votes, plans
had been made to sort the ballots almost immediately after the
polls closed. Because of certain mechanical difficulties, this was not
accomplished. The ballots had been locked in a room. In attempting
to open the lock, the unknown force intervened and the key was

ithout commitment. "All dialogue
is enriching because it broadens
one's experience, but it can be
dangerous as well as enlightening.
"I am not at all sure that dia-
logue is something one wants to
indulge in frequently because
there is something private about
religious experience and culture.
It is hard to talk about and hard
to explain as memories and jokes
which develop within a family are
difficult to discuss," he said.
Inherent Rejection
Commitment is an intensely
personal thing based on personal
discoveries and particular life ex-
periences. Too much dialogue can
be disturbing because a very close
association with one religion ne-
cessitates rejection of others al-
though it need not be unfriendly,
he said.
Religious experience involves a
commitment that we want others
to appreciate; but not necessarily
to share.he noted.
