oC1 THE MICHIGAN DAILY FRIDY
Rafferty To Seek Reforms
PROF. HOWARD S. BRETSCH
the wide range of abilities and
interests represented in a very
cosmopolitan state are question-
able," Prof. Bretsch continued.
The new school superintendent
is a strong supporter of local
school officials having the rigist
to choose whatever textbooks they
want for their children. But the
legislature and the 10-member
state board of education are not
inclined to. place the important
matter of textbook selection in the
hands of the local boards.
Regardless of these difficulties,
Rafferty believes he has a possible
solution. By conducting an exten-
sive public relations drive aimed
at local citizens and school au-
thorities, he hopes to have his
changes put into effect.
"His emphasis on the more con-
servative side of education, more
commonly known as the 'three R's'
is apt to overlook the major at-
tention which must be given to
the social problems of Californian
youth," Prof. Bretsch noted.

SGC Requests Abolition
Of Chaperonage Policy
By GLORIA BOWLES
Student Government Council
voted Wednesday night to rec-
ommend to the Office of Student
Affairs that it discontinue its pol-
icy of mandatory chaperone forms
for student social functions.
Acting on a suggestion from the
Committee on Student Concerns,
the Council hopes that this ex-
pression of student opinion will
bring about a change in OSA
Director of Student Organiza-
tions and Discipline John Bingley
said that the OSA would study
However, he commented that
"SGC considered the worst side"
of chaperone form rules. The
"negative approach" of the mo-
tion's rationale ignored "the good
things to be said for the forms,"
In other action, a lengthy dis-
cussion on the committee's Wom-
en's Hours Survey and its pro-
posals for women's hours changes
ended in the passage of three
amendments which would recom-
mend OSA action to abolish hours
for all women except freshmen,
extend the number of late min-
utes permitted to freshmen women
and extend their weekend pers to
The Council, however, tabled the
entire motion and will consider it
and the three amendments next
Discussion of the survey and
the committee motion centered
around the validity of the survey,
and the possibility of administra-
tion acceptance of SGC action tak-
en on the basis of the poll.
Assembly Association President
Mary Beth Norton, '64, reporting
on an Assembly executive board
meeting, noted that the group re-
garded the committee's proposals
with "dismay." It agreed that the
proposals were "fine as far as they
go," but said that the committee
"needs to go further."
She expressed a desire for more
than a poll and suggested increas-
ed consultations on the subject of
women's hours between the OSA
and the Presidents of Panhellen-
ic Associations and Assembly.
However, Council President Stev-
en Stockmeyer, '63, affirmed that
it is "about time that "the Council
take the leadership in offering ini-
tial action," and that it should
expect cooperation from other

STANFORD -The Student
Legislature at Stanford University
reaffirmed its resolution of last
week on "social action and its
role in the educational process,"
and further affirmed "the right
of any'group of students, properly
indentifying themselves, to speak
out on public issues." It also re-
solved "to encourage student ac-
tion in concert with the adminis-
tration to provide a mutually ac-
ceptable means of realizing this
right of expression.",
Student body president Armin
Rosencranz said he strongly dis-
agreed with Stanford President
Sterling's suggestion that suspen-
sion from the university was con-
sidered as a disciplinary matter
for some officers as a result of
past legislature actions. "How-
ever misguided student opinion
may be, it is deplorable to sug-
gest suspension or dissolution of
the legislature as a proper reaction
to our action," he commented.
OXFORD (CPS)-The Univer-
sity of Mississippi faces the loss
of some of its most qualified
teachers and administrators as
objectives are in danger of being
sacrificed in an essentially poli-

that many faculty members feel
that academic standards have been
seriously damaged by the crisis.

sity has asked for a large increase
in its share of federal funds un-
der the student loan program of

of the Michigan Entomological
Society on the topic, "How Insects

cher-plant Midges," at 7:30 p.m.
today in 2009 Museums Bldg.
The amount is a more than 50
per cent increase over the $320,000
Harvard requested last year, and
more than double the NDEA limit
of $250,000 on loans to any one
institution. President John F. Ken-
nedy asked for the elimination of
this limit in his message on edu-
cation delivered to Congress last
week. But Gunness said Harvard's
request was not made on the as-
sumption that the limit would be
