Board To Offer Cudldp
ivitation for Meetings
The Regents yesterday approved Regent Donald M. D. Thurber's
suggestion that William B. Cudlip, Regent-elect, be invited to attend
meetings in preparation for his taking office in January.
They also recognized the appointment of four department chair-
men, reviewed the University's position in establishing a branch at

C onstruction
Safety Rule
By The Associated Press
Another one of George Rom-
ney's legislative goals was reached
yesterday when the Senate passed
a safety construction bill, but his
high priority Ford-Canton bill was
reported in danger.
The construction safety bill,
first in Michigan history, passed
with bipartisan support 25-1. It
was accompanied by a $147,000
appropriation to establish a five-
member Construction Safety Com-
mission. This commission will
draw up safety rules and regula-
tions for the inspection and use of
equipment subject to approval by
the legislature.
But while the safety-construc-
tion was being passed, Senate Ma-
jority Leader Stanley G. Thayer
(R-Ann Arbor) warned that the
Ford-Canton bill, of even higher
priority to Romney, "might be
lost" because of efforts by auto-
mobile companies to tighten the
jobless-pay disqualifications.
He was particularld critical of
the "big three," Ford, Chrysler
and General Motors, for their en-
dangering the bill's progress.
The bill, which establishes new
definitions on when unemploy-
ment compensation may be paid
in labor dispute,- situations, has
had several compromise versions
written. The current version, work-
ed out by Senate and House Re-
publican leaders failed to' receive.
okayal by a House Republican
caucus yesterday.
While awaiting action on the
Ford-Canton bill, Romney has two
recently-passed bills on his desk.
The first of these is a two-year
voter registration law which clear-
ed, the Senate -by a 23-10 vote
Thursday. The bill, which requires
voters to either cast ballots at
least every two years or re-register,
passed over strong Democratic
Democrats fear that the meas-
uire, replacing a four-year regis-
tration law, will cut their Detroit
electoral margins.
The second measure awaiting
the, governor's approval was the
small-loan bill, which would raise
the maximum ceiling of loans
from $500 to $1000. Romney said
yesterday that he would sign the
bill, pending further study. A last-
ditch effort to defeat it Was start-
ed yesterday by Rep. Gilbert Wales
(D-Stambaugh) who said he will
ask that the measure be recalled
on Monday. He was absent w hen
the House sent the bill to Romney
on Thursday.

Swarthmore College will become
the new chairman. of the philos-
ophy department beginning in

new department chairman; the
others were reappointed.
Reappoint Chairmen
Prof. Warren W. Chase was re-
named chairman of wildlife man-
agement department of the nat-
ural resources school. Also, in the
natural resources school, Prof.
Karl F. Lagler will continue as
chairman of the fisheries depart-
In the English department, Prof.
Warner G. Rice retains his posi-
tion as chairman.
Executive Vice-President Mar-
vin L. Niehuss brought the Regents
up to date on the legislative status
of the University-Delta resolution
to form a branch campus at Delta.
Resolution Dead
He told them .that the resolu-
tion will probably not report out
of the Senate business committee.
However, he indicated that al-
though the deadline for approp-
riations has passed, the resolution
could conceivably report out at
any time.
Vice - President Niehuss reaf-'
firmed that there was no "deal"
between University President Har-
lan Hatcher and Sen. Frank
Beadle (R-St. Clair), chairman of
the Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee, regarding the University's
intentiois at Delta.
He said that the University will
await legislative support before
setting up a branch.
Sacrifice Opportunity
Regent Eugene B. Powerof Ann
Arbor commented that the result
of the Delta negotiations were
very "discouraging." He charged
that an opportunity to provide ex-
tended higher education was "sac-
rificed on the altar of institutional

The Regents are waiting recom-

tion before taking any action re-
garding the authority of Student
Government Council to enforce the
Regents' anti-discrimination by-
law where student organizations
are concerned.

University President H a r 1 a n
Hatcher yesterday outlined the
general principles for spending the
$1.5 million increase in the state
He also said that the Regents
will probably discuss the delega-
tion of powers concerning their
non-discrimination bylaw at next
month's meeting.
At a' press conference after the
Regents meeting President Hatch-
er said that faculty salaries and
wage adjustments would be given
top priority in administering gen-
eral operating funds.
Second Priority
Some expansion relief will be
required in units which are espe-
cially crowded. Funds will prob-
ably be used to expand the literary
college's instructional facilities,
the library system and for main-
tenance of new buildings such as
the Physics - Astronomy Bldg.
which has just been turned over
to the University by the contrac-
"Maintenance will probably be
at subsistence level," since the $1.5
million increase will be "quickly
used up" by the other priority
items, the president indicated.
Concerning Student Government
Council's handling of discrimina-
tion in student organizations'
membership selection practices, he
said that the Regents need to
"spell out the nature and extent
of delegation of power and the
proper procedures for administra-
tion" of the Regental bylaw which
prohibits discrimination.
Investigates Legality
The decision will be made with
the aid and guidance of Dean Al-
lan F. Smith of the Law School,
who is investigating the legal re-
lationship between the University
and fraternities and sororities and
the delegation of Regental powers
to SGC.
Dean Smith has completed an
informal draft of his report, but
it has not been "finalized" yet.
President Hatcher stressed that
the "objectives are not in question.
The Regents share the . concern
for maintaining free, open and un-
biased associations of students on
this campus, which includes the
right of any organization to se-
lect freely their members without
dictation from outside or national
The objective is that there be
no discrimination based on race,
color or creed, he commented.
Also at the conference, Regent
Donald M. D. Thurber of Grosse
Pointe said that his suggestion to
invite Regent-elect William B.
Cudlip to subsequent Regents
meetings did not imply that he
had decided against asking for a
recount. The Democratic State
Central Committee will probably
decide whether to contest the close
election in which Cudlip edged out
Thurber on Sunday.
Director of University Relations
Michael Radock indicated that
President Hatcher intends to hold
more regular press conferences
whenever he deems them advisable.

University rocketers scored an
historic space first Thursday, fir-

tory, and Nelson W. Spencer, the

'Administration director and form-
er director of the University lab-

The experiment was significant,
not only for its accurary, but be-
cause it provided a concurrent
vertical and horizontal profile of
the upper atmosphere and per-
mitted a "cross check" of satel-
lite and rocket measuring devises,
Prof. William G. Dow, chairman
of the electrical engineering de-
partment, explained.
Less Experience
"We have had a lot of exper-
ience with measuring instruments

on rockets, and know these well
and understand them. We have
had less experience with satel-
lites. So in a sense, we get an in-
flight calibration of the satellite's
instruments," Prof. Dow noted.
The rocket was launched short-
ly after 4 p.m. Thursday and was
timed within 10 seconds to come
close to the passing satellite in
the lower part of its orbit. It
met the satellite 180 miles up,
coming within 25 miles.

Prof. Dow stressed the closeness
of the approach. He indicated that
it had virtually been at the same
place and time in space with the

in research industry. It is nearer
to that goal than the University

"Its impact is significant. It
demonstrates that there is more

than any other area of the state."'
The rare-metals facility will be
