Plans,
By SHIRLEY ROSICK
While plans are in the working
for student advisory committees to
the University president and vice-
presidents, an even more tenacious
network of the same type of com-
mittee is being set up at a lower
level. The push for more student
advisory committees began with.
Vice-President for Student Affairs
Richard L. Cutler last fall direct-
ing all the heads of his nine de-
partments to establish, in any way
each saw fit, general advisory
committees for their areas.
At first, the formation of Cut-
ler's committees seemed to be
slow in getting started. When a
Daily article of last March re-
ported that some Office of Stu-
dent Affairs directors were reluc-
tant to set up advisory commit-
tees, explaining that they couldn't
conceive of students being inter-
ested in advising in certain areas,

Pushed

for

Student Advisory Committees

a memo from Cutler to
his departments gave the
committee idea a more

each of
advisory
forceful

thrust at the lower levels.
Now each of the directors has
formulated plans for establishing
groups in the fall and some com-
mittees have already begun par-
tial functioning. Some directors
have explained what may have
been a misunderstanding causing
the stagnation of the idea at the
beginning, saying they have had
numbers of students involved with
their offices' work in the past but
merely never thought of them in
terms of general, advisory com-
mittees.
M. Robert Klinger, director of
the International Center, said
that two or three students have
in the past sat on his office's
board of governors and that he
has recommended that number
be expanded to four. Klinger ex-

plained that the board acts as an
advisor to the center and works
on helping with "broad policy for-
mation and in establishing essen-
tial priorities for the work of the
center."
He continued that that petition-
ing for an International Center
Program Council, composed of
both foreign and American stu-
dents, began last spring and mem-
bers should be finally chosen to
start work in the fall. The six or
perhaps seven committees con-
stituting the council will be work-
ing on projects such as: faculty
fireside forums, the international
ball, speakers' programs, interna-
tional displays a n d exhibits,
United Nations affairs and social
and sports programs.
In addition, Klinger talked of
"task force" committees, with
varying combinations of foreign
and American students and com-

munity leaders to work on such
programs as housing and arrival
help, community hospitality, and
student loans,
Klinger said he also envisions
a special committee to nominate
students to fill the center's pro-
ject committees.
Dewitt C. Baldwin, Coordinator
of Religious Affairs, also explain-
ed that students have in the past
been selected for the board of gov-
ernors of his office. After petition-
ing, Sue Meyers, '69, William Sch-
roeder, '68, and David Huisman,
Grad, were selected to sit on next
year's board.
Baldwin said he also plans, in
the fall, to call together a general
student advisory group to meet
with the Office of Religious Af-
fairs staff and probably have dis-
cussion on students' concerns in
the area of religious affairs, how
they can be brought out into the

open and the people in the ORA
made sensitive to them; counsel-
ing and the office's speaker pro-
grams.
Baldwin said such a group would
probably consist of students who
have served as counselors for the
O R A ' s rendezvous counseling-
camping program for incoming
freshmen, other students ORA of-
ficials know "by different con-
tacts," as well as some representa-
tives of the major student organi-
zations on campus.
A Student Government Council
committee on counseling that of-
fered its services to Mrs. Eliza-
beth Davenport of Cutler's coun-
seling office has already complet-
ed a study of marital, pre-marital
counseling available to University
students and plans next fall to
study academic counseling.
The committee suggested last

spring

counseling be employed by the
counseling office; that sex educa-
tion courses and literature be
made more available to students
and that a more comprehensive
speaker program be instituted,
with such topics as reproduction,
birth control techniques, popula-
tion explosion and family plan-
ning.
Revision of the "Guide to
Counseling" booklet was also spur-
red by the committee's efforts. The
booklet's revision is aimed at get-
ting away from the directory-type
approach of past booklets, instead
offering a more personal approach
to explaining what types of prob-
lems a student can encounter at
the University and where he can
seek help in solving them.
Duncan Sells, Director of Stu-

that a counselor devoted

dent Organizations, said that
though the advisory committee he
selected last spring will not for-
mally meet until fall, students on
campus during the summer tri-
mester will be working with him
on an informal basis. He said that
"there are just not enough" stu-
dents here now for. a full func-
tioning of the committee, but that
those who have remained for the
summer have been invited to
"come in any time."
Sells said that SGC President
Edward Robinson, '67, who is
working as a- summer assistant in
his office, will be an effective
source of student feed-back and
that summer students might be
able to investigate "all kinds of
things, the operations of Joint
4 Judiciary Council, for instance,"
to get ready for the committee's
official functioning this fall.

Committee
Rejects 'U'
Increases
Reaffirms Senate
Figure of $57.8
Million; Ends Plans
The House Ways and Means
Committee in sessions late last,
night rejected University appeals
for increased appropriations for
the 1966-67 budget.
The committee reaffirmed the
Senate figure of $57.8 million-a
figure substantially below the Uni-
versity's original request of $65
million.
In addition hopes were dashed
for the proposed expansion of the
Center for Research on Learning
and Teaching. The University had
hoped to establish a statewide
computer network which would
k have eventually included all state
supported colleges and universi-
ties.
University attempts to raise fac-
ulty salaries also appear to be
dimmed with the unfavorable leg-
islative action.
The committee decision also
ended University plans for the
Institute of International Com-
merce and an Institute of Ge;r-
ontology which was to be jointly
operated wih Wayne State Uni-
versity.
The bill will now move to the
House floor where it may be fur-
pj ther amended and changed. If
There are any changes in the
Senate proposal made by the
House, the bill will go to the Sen-
ate. The body will vote on the
amended proposal. If no agree-
ment is reached the bill will then
go to a conference committee
where further changes could be
made.
The first hearings on the Uni-
versity's 65 million budget request
were held in. the Senate Appro-
priations Committee on April 22.
They trimmed the University's re-
quest of $65 million to close to
$58 million dollars. This was still
$1 million dollars over Governor
Romney's requested appropriation.

WORKMEN EXCAVATING for a new parking structure
here at the University yesterday unearthed a bronze coffin
bearing the name "Fletcher" and dated 1852.
Officials were checking reports the coffin may contain the
remains of William A. Fletcher, the first chief justice of the
Michigan Supreme Court and a former University regent who died
Sept. 19, 1852.
The University had announced the parking structure would
be named the Fletcher St. parking structure. The street had been
named years ago in honor of the former regent.

announced.
THE CORNELL UNIVERSITY FACULTY of arts and sciences
voted in a move "to defeat the use of class rank for draft defer-
ments," not to compute an all-male class-rank list as requested
by Selective Service officials. Class rank is one factor considered
by draft boards in determining student deferments.
The action was announced by Stuart M. Brown Jr., arts
college dean. He said the college registrar would be informed
immediately "not to compile an all-male list."
As a result of the faculty action, he said, students will be
able to give their draft boards only their standing in a list of
both men and women students.
In a similar move, the faculty of arts and sciences at Dart-
mouth College has voiced opposition to the selective service policy
of drafting students according to their rank in school.

THE GREATEST FLOOD of college graduates in the nation's
history will pour from classrooms this month, and the Labor
Department says their prospects for jobs at high pay have never
been brighter.
"Employers are offering jobs to graduates at a record pace,"
said Secretary of Labor W. Willard Wirtz, with some starting
salaries ranging up to $850 a month or more.
Mr. Wirtz said, however, that reports from some colleges
indicated many graduates were not actively seeking work because
they face military service. He urged them to find jobs anyway.
The greatest demand is for graduates in scientific and tech-
nical fields, such as engineering, chemistry, physics and mathe-
matics, Mr. Wirtz said.

Southeast Asian Aid
Be Peasant Oriented
By MICHAEL HEFFER
The United States must adjust
its agricultural programs in South-
east Asia to approach problems
"from the bottom up" and place
the focus upon people, Clifton
Wharton of the Agricultural De-
velopment Council said last night.
This must be part of the U.S.'s
new emphasis upon the rural di-
mension and its awareness that
since three out of four people in
Southeast Asia are peasants, the
focus must be on the peasant in
his traditional village as the final
arbiter in ideological and military
struggles, Wharton added.
Wharton said the U.S. must
concentrate on the rural dimen-
sion before the military one. He
suggested one way to help accom-
plish this would be to make the
existence of agricultural reform
programs a contingency for all
U.S. foreign aid to nations in the
area.

Ambushed.
Dauring Civil
Rights Walk
Gunman Arrested
At Scene May Face
Federal Prosecution
HERNANDO, Miss. (A - James
H. Meredith met a shotgun am-
bush yesterday as he led a hand-
ful of civil rights marchers along
a Mississippi highway on a pil-
grimage to banish racial fear in
his Deep South Homeland.
A worldwide symbol in Amer-
ica's integration crisis since his
riot-marked entry four years ago
into the University of Mississip-
pi, Meredith apparently escaped
with superficial wounds. At a
Memphis, Tenn., hospital, his con-
dition was reported as satisfac-
tory.
A white man from the Memphis
area was arrested as the gun-
man. In Washington, the Jus-
tice Department said he prob-
ably would be prosecuted by state
officials, but that this "does not
exclude the possibility of federal
prosecution."
Three blasts from a shotgun at
4:15 p.m. left Meredith writhing
on the hot surface of a two-Ian
highway, while his assailant look-
ed on from a nearby thicket.
Meredith, 32, set out Sunday
with less than half a dozen com-
panions on a 225-mile trek from
Memphis to Jackson, Miss. The
demonstration was intended to ex-
hort Negroes to cast aside their
ingrained fears of Mississippi
whites and to register to vote in
that state.
FBI agents, state troopers and
local police remained nearby as
the march led Meredith across
the Tennessee-Mississippi border
and into the state in which he
was born.
Arrested within moments of the
shooting was Aubry James Nor-
vell, 41, a husky, balding unem-
ployed highway contractor, orig-
inally from Forrest City, Ark.
Mississippi Gov. Paul Johnson
said Norvell admitted to state
highway patrolmen that he was
the gunman. Norvell was quoted as
saying he hid beneath a culvert
on U.S. 51, south of here, and
'crawled out into some woods as
Meredith's party passed, The
weapon was described as a 16
gauge shotgun loaded with bird
shot.
One eyewitness said the gunman
called out Meredith's name Just
before the shotgun blasts' exploded.
A wave of revulsion rolled across
the nation at word of Meredith's
shooting. He had emerged un-
scathed in 1962 as bloody riot-
ing swept the then all-white Uni-
versity of Mississippi in the wake
of Meredith's admission.
President Johnson led in de-
crying the shooting. Among those

The personal side of people in
the news is a part of the story
that newspapers often ignore in
their pre-occupation with the
what and how of an event.
The recent Detroit Northern
High School controversy is a case
in point. Its principal, Arthur T.
Carty, was never described as
more than "principal of Northern
High School."
But speaking to two Education
Sociology classes here yesterday,
Carty stepped out of newsprint
and told his story with the emo-
tion of a man who unwittingly
found himself involved in a tense
situation.
Speaking of his personal life,
Carty said that he has lived or

"If it had not been for young
militant teachers, it would have
never happened," he asserted.
Carty charged that the teachers
were not really concerned with
conditions at Northern, but were
militant "for their own purposes"
and had just "used the young Ne-
groes."s
Also, Carty said he was certain
that the student leaders had been
influenced and guided by "left
wing" groups who incited them, to
rebellion.
For this reason, Carty contin-
ued, the revolt "had to come
about," whether at Northern or
elsewhere. Yet he denied that the
revolt was justified, saying that
democratic processes 'were prefer-
able, though "admittedly much
qslower."
