SGC Sets Bias Study Group





Student Government Counci
last night appointed an ad-hoc
committee to draw up a "genera
format" for implementation of the
Harris report.
Council approved the committee
appointments of President Thomas
Brown, '63BAd, who noted that
a letter from sorority lawyers con.
testing the legality of the Harris
proposals had delayed its con-
sideration by the Regents.
Brown said, however, that the
"temporary delay" should not stor
the Council from "beginning tC
formulate its procedures now.'
Brown will serve on the ad-hoc
committee with Daily editor
Michael Olinick, '63, Panhellenic
president Patricia Elkins, '64,
Council members Kenneth Miller,
'64 and Russell Epker, '64, and
Richard Young, '63, a former
chairman of. the Committee on
Set Target Date
The Council president also sug-
gested that Council set May 8 as
the target date for completion of
the membership rules and proce-
dures. Brown also suggested that
Council hold public hearings be-
fore that date.
In other action, SGC decided to
notify the Post Office that it
wished them to forward two pub-
lications which had been withheld
because they had been deemed to
be Communist propaganda.
The Post Office withholds all
such mail pending notification by
the recipient that he wishes the
matter forwarded.
According to the motion, the
measure "shall not be construed to
mean that SGC approves" of the
actions of the organization which
mailed the publications, the In-
ternational Union of Students.
Student Representatives
Olinick, in an effort to en-
courage implementation of a
Council passed motion on student
government, asked that SGC ap-
point student representatives to
eight major Faculty Senate com-
The motion intends that Coun-
cil would be ready to immediately
seat members in the event of
Senate approval of SGC recom-
mendations for a joint student-
faculty government.
An amendment introduced by
Miller noted that "actual seating
of such students shall, of course,
be contingent on the approval of
the Faculty Senate."
Request Privileges
The motion passed by Council
also gives the Senate Advisory
Committee the right to place items
on the SGC agenda, and requests
similar privileges for SGC inclu-
sion of items on the agenda of
faculty deliberative bodies.
It also asks that students be
appointed to the committees with-
in a month.
Council has been awaiting fac-
ulty reaction to the student-fac-
ulty mrtion they passed several
weeks ago. Brown announced last
night that Council will meet next
Wednesday evening with the Stu-
dent Relations committee of the
Faculty senate.
A meeting with the Senate Ad-
visory committee is scheduled for
mid-April, when Council hopes for
faculty approval of the seating of
students on the committees.
Rubella StriKes
Many Victims;
Wards Filled
An outbreak of "G e r m a n
measles" or rubella now spreading
across campus has forced Health
Service, "practically full," to ad-
vise students with it to go home,
Director Dr. Morley B. Beckett said
He explained that the outbreak
has been building up since last

week, and "nobody knows how far
it will go."
Rubella, which is extremely con-
tagious, is characterized by a mild
rash and lasts for a few days. It is
only dangerous to women in their
first three months of pregnancy,
Beckett explained.
There are currently 21 students
in Health Service with it. Beckett
calls the outbreak considerable.
Beckett voiced the hope that
the spring vacation break next
week will end the spread. He noted
that Health Service is now "out
of beds."

Harris Letter


(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following are excerpts from Prof. Robert Harris'
letter to Student Government Council concerning his proposal for a
Regental resolution to govern SGC implementation of the Regents'
anti-discrimination bylaw.)
I am confident that the Regents will adopt the proposal, or
something substantially similar, in the near future. I base this con-
fidence on what I believe to be the merit of the proposal and the
fact that failure to adopt it would leave the University utterly bereft
of policy or procedure in this area.
The regime under which SGC was operating since May, 1960
when the Committee on Membership in Student Organizations was
created, has fallen; nothing has been done under these procedures
since the spring of 1962, and their death knell was sounded when
University counsel rendered his opinion in January of this year that
they were of dubious legality.
The form of the proposed resolution which SGC endorsed emerg-
ed from a series of informal conferences I held with selected members
of the administration, faculty and student body, and from the changes
suggested by SGC itself. I am convinced it is the best compromise
that can be worked out among the conflicting interests on campus,
assuming the Regents still adhere to their policy announcement of
January 16, 1959:
"The Regents are naturally concerned with the right of Uni-
versity living groups to govern their own affairs, including freedom
of choice of members, within the framework of University policy
and not by requirement of a national organization. The Regents also
have supported and do continue to support the idea of a strong, re-
sponsible student government on the campus.
"At the same time, the Regents' primary concern must be with

Removal of 'Dry Line'
To Have Little Effect
Although the "dry line" may be removed as a result of a proposal
in Monday's city elections, passage will have little effect in the cam-
pus area.
The ballot includes a charter amendment to eliminate the general
prohibition against sale of alcoholic beverages east of Division St.
However, state law still forbids sale of liquor within 500 feet
of a church or school, which includes almost the entire campus area.
But apparently there would be li-

to forget their squabbles and unite
behind a grand agreement to save
the crisis-ridden nation from
"We are facing a grave national
emergency . . . a catastrophe,"
Suido declared in a national radio-
television address.
A few hours before he spoke,
Guido's interior secretary, Rodolfo
Martinez, resigned under mount-
ing military pressure. Martinez
was chief architect of the plan to
give Peronists a voice in restored
civilian government.
Guido asserted that everyone in
Argentina wants elections except
"the eternal five per cent" who
he said always opposes them and
who would "lead the country into
chaos," opening the way "for any
Martinez refused to tell news-
men why he quit.
Guido blamed what he termed
"the leading class" for slowing
Argentine progress, but did not
mention any names. The military
has been his chief adversary in the
struggle over letting Peronists
take part in government.

Washington and the International

'U' Buildings Included
University buildings areconsid-
ered schools if used for curricu-
lum of a school, the State Liquor
Control Commission announced
yesterday. For instance, classroom
buildings would be included, but
plant facilities would not. The
status of Hill Aud. is as yet unde-
termined. Nothing can be done
about churches.
The first legal expression of
the "dry line" was a 1903 ordi-
nance, which was written into the
city charter the next year. Before
1903, a city-backed "gentleman's
conspiracy" prevented bars from
gaining a foothold east of Division
St. Division St. got its name from
the "dry line."
Original Provision
The city's charter of 1956 re-
tained the original provision,
which reads:
"Provided, that no person shall
keep a saloon or other place ex-
cept a drug store, where any spiri-
tous malt, brewed, fermented, vin-
ous or intoxicating liquors are sold
or kept for sale, at wholesale or
at retail" in the area.

Final Vote Delayed
On 'Piggy-Back' Bill
'LANSING-Chances of gaining
legislative approval this year for
any of the three Delta College ex-
pansion plans appear dim.
Final voting on the so-called
"piggy-back" bill, sponsored by
Rep. Raymond C. Wurzel (R-
North Street), was postponed in
the House yesterday as legislators
scurried to meet a midnight dead-
line for non-appropriation bills,
Wurzel explained that his bill is
considered an appropriations bill
-even though it contains no ap-
propriations-because it was re-
ported out by the House Commit-
tee on Ways and Means.
The "piggy-back" bill, which
would set up an independent col-
lege in the Delta area, is expected
to pass the House before tomor-
row's deadline for appropriations
bills, but its opponents are confi-
dent that it will be bottled up in
the Senate.
Illegal Proposal
The second Delta proposal, sub-
mitted last Friday as a Senate res-
olution by Sen. William J. Leppien
(R-Saginaw), is illegal, according
to Assistant Attorney General Eu-
gene Krasicky.
The plan would set up a junior-
year program, financed by private
and local contributions, under the
Delta Board this fall. The pilot
program would be operated on a
temporary basis, awaiting a final,
long-range decision on Delta's fu-
But Krasicky said yesterday that
the establishment of a third year
cannot be done under Delta aus-
pices, because Delta is by law a
community college-offering only
freshman-sophomore instruction.
College Law Block
He noted that even if the reso-
lution passed, it would not super-
sede the community college law,
and taxpayers in the Delta area
could have the pilot program de-
clared illegal.
"Also, it would be difficult to
show that no public funds were
being used for the junior year,"
he added, pointing out that there
probably would be some overlap
in administration or physical fa-
"I think it would require some
sort of procedure" to dissolve the
present community college district
before the junior year would be
legitimate, Krasicky said.
Boos Refuses
In addition, the man who was
expected to introduce the tem-
porary junior-year resolution in
the House will not do so. Rep.
William Boos (D-Saginaw) ex-
plained that he does not feel a
resolution is necessary to set up
the pilot program since only pri-
vate funds are involved. He sug-
gested that the program would be
legal because it would be under the
"sponsorship" of the University -
meaning that the University would
provide "advice"to the Delta lead-
The third plan, to establish a
four-year University branch at
Delta, was replaced in the Senate
by the pilot-program resolution.
Although it is still alive in the
House Rules and Resolutions Com-
mittee, Boos, one of its sponsors,
admits that opposition there is
heavily against it-especially since
the House favors the "piggy-back"

About 150 Negroes marched to

Tension has been building up
for some time in the South in the
wake of continual harassment of
SNCC workers. Late Tuesday night
two shotgun blasts were fired into
the home of Dewey Greene,, Sr.,
whose son, Dewey Greene, Jr., at-
tempted to enter the University of
Mississippi earlier this year. No
one was injured. It was this inci-
dent that sparked the demonstra-

Trouble Expected
The City Council and Police
Chief Curtis Lary said the trou-
ble was due to "Negro racial agi-
tators from outside of Greenwood
and mostly from states other than
Mississippi." Julian Bond, assist-
ant at the SNCC headquarters in
Atlanta, said only three of the so-
called leaders who had been ar-
rested were from outside.
He said those arrested planned
to remain in jail until the charges
against them were dropped. He al-
so said urgent requests for feder-
al protection of workers on the
voter registration drive were being
sent to the administration.
"The only thing that will alter
the situation is for President John
F. Kennedy to send us federal pro-
tection," he said. He pointed out
that such protection has been ask-
ed for repeatedly.

"Education to the limit of his capacity is the birthright of
every child."
This is a primary plank in incumbent Regent Eugene B.
Power's, '27, platform today, just as it was when he was first
elected on the Democratic ticket in 1955.
Power says that he is campaigning on his record as a Re-
gent and on his intention to continue to work towards imple-
menting his six-point program for higher education:
Doubled Enrollment
1) Educational opportunities for every child;
2) Preparation for a doubled enrollment in 1970;
3) Recognition in salary of the importance of the teacher's
4) Cooperation of all colleges and universities, both private
and public, to provide the best educational services for the en-
tire state;
Free Inquiry
5) Preservation of the democratic tradition of a university
as a place for free inquiry and discussion; and
6) Expansion of support for colleges and universities.
Low tuition and adequate facilities are essential in pro-
viding a maximum of educational opportunities, Power asserts.
Educated Populace
"The philosophy behind a low-tuition principle is one which
recognizes that an effective democracy requires an educated
populace. If a democratic society is to preserve itself, education
must be a social responsibility not a private privilege," he main-
"There have been three fee increases while I have served
on the Board, but in each instance the Regents have also in-

Power contends that "rather

"The University is faced with the problem of either ex-

population centers," he says. "The University has received all
the benefits of bigness and any significant growth in size on the
Ann Arbor campus will only produce headaches."

Ends Fight
For Plans
Thayer, Beadle Move
To Reverse Omission
By Romney, Group
The Senate agreed to substi-
tute Medical Science Unit II for
the proposed architecture college
building in the "quick action" cap-
ital outlay bill on Tuesday.
The substitution came after a
long series of attempts to get a
second such medical building for
the University. Both Gov. George
Romney and the Senate Appropri-
ations Committee had omitted
planning funds for this building
from their capital outlay recom-
Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-St.
Clair) introduced the substitu-
tion measure after Sen. Stanley
In a 23-2 vote late last night
the Senate approved a bill pro-
viding for the establishment of
a civil rights commission.
The commission will review
cases concerned with violations
of civil rights presently guaran-
teed under the constitution.
Sen. Stanley Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) commented that ,the bill
gave Michigan as strong a civil
rights program as any state in
the Union.

G. Thayer (R-Ann Arbor), and
University officials convinced him
of the need of priority for the
medical building.
Final Stage
With the acceptance of the sub-
stitution the capital outlay bill
moved into its final action stage.
The Senate will either approve or
disapprove of the measure by Fri-
day-the deadline on appropria-
tions bills in the house of origin.
Vice-President for Business and
Finance Wilbur K. Pierpont said
yesterday that the University had
requested planning funds for the
medical .building since the start
of negotiations.
Originally the University had
asked for $400,000 to plan Medi-
cal Science Unit II, $300,000 for
the dental building, in addition to
funds for the architecture struc-
ture. Funds for the dental building
have not been questioned.
Explains Mix-up
Thayer explained the delay in
getting recognition for the medi-
cal unit. "There was a mix-up in
the state controller's office."
Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin L. Niehuss has indicated that
the governor had promised the
University funds for the medical
building, which the University has
been trying to get for about ten
years but that there had been some
Apparently Vice-President Nie-
huss's attempts and consultation
with University President Harlan
Hatcher on Saturday swayed Bea-
dle and the Senate.
Lists Medical Unit
The "quick action" measure con-
tains no specific figures for proj-
ects, Thayer pointed out. "The im-
portant thing is that the medical
unit is listed among the included
projects." The building engineer-
ing division of the administration
will delineate specific figures for
the projects when the entire capi-
tal outlay measure passes both
houses. The total "quick action"
bill calls for $1.11 million.
