We Pause To Honor...
JN THE complexity of a modern University, it is periodi-
cally necessary to reassert the institution's most basic
values, to affirm the value and meaning of the concept of
education. Part of this affirmtion is the honors convocation.
Despite the many distractions and distortions of a
modern university, the basic idea is still a community of
scholars working together to broaden the scope of man's
knowledge. Despite.the transient waves of this or that view
on where educational experience centers, the University
always returns to a fundamental precept: education takes
place in the classroom. The overwhelming tone of the cam-
pus-whatever concerns students at the moment-is still
For this reason, we pause to honor those who have ex-
celled in their academic achievement. Certainly there are
significant values gained by those who participate in extra-
curricular activities; but the mental discipline of study is a
prerequisite for any kind of meaningful intellectual expan.
sion. These academic achievements are expressive of intel.
lectual discipline. For the most part they represent weeks

momentary issues that have torn the campus, these students

students who have worked to make themselves a part of
the community of scholars. Through them, and those like
them who will follow and have preceded them, the Univer.

the community of mankind..

New Member Majority

Student Government Council
has a "new look" this spring, with
13 of 18 Council members new to
the group.
Seven are ex-officios, elected
within the last two months as
heads of their student organiza-
tions. Six others came to Council
following elections in March.
At the same tine, Council has
lost its leadership, with the resig-
nation of its two "bloc" leaders,
liberal Robert Ross and moderate
Steven Stockmeyer.

last four months: discrimination
procedures and student-faculty
Council asked Robert G. Harris
of the Law School to draw up a
report which would clarify SGC
power to withdraw recognition
from students organizations found
in violation of its anti-discrimina-
tion regulation.
According to the Council plan,
or its Regental grant of power,
Council can both recognize and
withdraw recognition from student
Council also prohibits student
organizations to choose members
on the basis of race, color or na-
tionial origin. The. SGC regulation
is supplementary to a Regental by-
law which asks the University to
"work for" the elimination of dis-
crimination in all organizations
related to it.
Real Authority
However, Council's real author-
ity to withdraw recognition has
been challenged from some quar-
The Regents, for example, are
given grants of both. legislative
and administrative authority by
the Michigan State Legislature.
The governing body, in turn, may
only delegate its administrative
Some, critics contend that a
grant to SGC of the right to with-
draw recognition constitutes a
grant of legislative authority.
Prof. Harris attempted to re-
solve such conflicts, in a report
which affirmed the right of stu-
dents to act in this area, and in,
which he called for appointment
of a membership judge by Council.
The membership judge would
have final authority to withdraw
recognition and would work un-
der rules and procedures formulat-
ed by Council.
Sorority lawyers, representing
those five houses who have not
yet submitted membership prac-
tices statements to Council, at-
tacked the report.
In a letter to the Regents, the
lawyers said that the Harris re-
port violated due process.

THE GENERAL LIBRARY has served many generations of scholars at the University. It was one of the first college libraries in the country
to open its stacks to students. Students are allowed to browse through the stacks freely in contrast to other universities where only the
library staff is allowed to handle books not on the open shelves. Its collection of books in Asian literature is famous throughout the
country. Its spacious reading rooms and quiet halls are an encouragement to the pursuit of knowledge.

.Worked in U.S.
Miss Sakanishi spent from 1930-
1942 as chief assistant for the
Japanese section Orientalia at the
Library of Congress in Washing-
ton, D.C.
She then returned to Japan
and served for a short time in
her government's foreign ministry.
Miss Sakanishi has since in-
creasingly disassociated herself
from official positions to pursue
the role of an independent critic.
She is currently known as Japan's
most influential pro-Western news
commentator and social critic.
Preceding Miss Sawanishi's ad-
dress, various honorary societies
will name new members, and aca-
demic awards will be conferred
upon students with superior rec-

There were more seniors earn-

'M' Athletes Have Successful Year Despite Weak Grid Showing

Any year during which a University captures two firsts and two
thirds in National Collegiate Athletic Association competition and
adds a world championship to boot has to be called successful, even
if the football team was a loser.
Since the last honor assemblage, Michigan varsity athletes have
been adding trophies to the 'M' room at an astounding rate. First
in NCAA baseball, first in world championship of baseball, first in
Big Ten outdoor track and first in Big Ten tennis were all added last
Then this winter the loving cup collection was beefed up with
first NCAA in gymnastics, first in Big Ten indoor track, third in
