SGC Calls Movie 'Stay-In'

WASHINGTON-President Lyn-

era as a time of rapid and fan-
tastic change, declared yesterday
that poverty, hunger, sickness and
ignorance will be conquired "be-.

In the climax of a three-day
ceremony installing him for a
full four-year term, Johnson re-
newed the oath of office as Pres-
ident and told Americans that the
responsibility "is not mine alone,
but ours together."
"Our nation's course is abund-

Berkeley Students Continue
Quiet Political ManeuverilnK1
Although students at the Berkeley campus of the University of
California are now caught up in the tensions of final examinations,
behind-the-scenes political maneuvering is continuing.
The major problem is "whether the administration has the right
to discipline students for illegal actions resulting from outside political
activities," Ray Colvig, manager of the Berkeley Public Information
Office told The Daily yesterday in a phone interview.
"The campus is quiet right now because students are busy taking
exams, but the main issues in the political dispute have not been
" resolved," he said.

AHC Proposals
For Governors
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs Richard Cutler has observed
that the joint Assembly-Inter-
quadrangle Council proposals de-
signed to revitilize the Residence
Hall Board of Governors will "pro-
vide a basis for full scale evalua-
tion of the current system."
These proposals included requir-
ing regularly scheduled monthly
meetings of the Board, making
Director of Housing Eugene Haun
chairman of the Residence Hall
Board and establishing an execu-
tive committee for the organiza-
However, he continued, the
prospects are unlikely that any
specific changes will be presented
for the Regents approval by the
end of the current term. "Since we
intend to establish permanent and
effective relationships, I can't
justify any adoption of a plan we
haven't had time to study."
Hopeful Reaction
John Eadie, '65, IQC president,
said that "Cutler's reaction was
exactly what we had been hoping
Maxine Loomis, '65N, president
of Assembly Association said she
was' pleased that Cutler was so
receptive to the recommendations

However she had hoped that the

placing the vice-president for stu-
dent affairs by the director of
housing as chairman of the Resi-
dence Hall Board of Governors,

to the board, requiring regularly

Regents Meeting
The California regents, which
set up a study committee to look
into the problem at their Decem
ber meeting, will meet again Fri-
"I don't think they will take any
definite action on the political
issue then because some of the
regents won't be able to attend
the meeting," Colvig said.
Colvig explained, Martin Meyer-
son, the recently appointed chan-
cellor, worked rapidly to prevent
further trouble at the school, but
his "interim rules" relaxing the
administration's restirctions on
on-campus student political activ-
ity are considered too "mild by
many student leaders."
To Continue Activities
At the same time, the Free
Speech Movement (FSM) which
was recently reported to be con-
sidering plans todisband, has
moved into new, larger quarters
off campus, "indicating they plan
to continue their activities," he
Meyerson's temporary r u I e s
stated that tables could be set up
on campus where political organi-
zations could recruit members and
collect funds. No permits would be
necessary for these activities. The
required advance notification for
campus political speeches was cut
from 72 to 48 hours.
.In an attempt to improve com-
munication between the adminis-
tration a n d student political
groups, Meyerson recently created
a new office, assistant chancellor
on political affairs. This post is
being filled by Prof. Neil Smelser

Universities, Said Favoring
Construction of Accelerator
A national consortium with representatives from about 30
universities should be formed to accept responsibility for the con-
struction and management of a'proposed "next-generation" high
energy physics accelerator which may cost as much as $1 billion.
Sources have reported that this was the general consensus of
opinion at a meeting in Washington Sunday of 26 university presi-
dents. Vice-President for Research A. Geoffrey Norman represented
" the University at the meeting.
Such a consortium would be
one way of preventing regional
' competition over the huge ac-
celerator's location and academic
disagreement over design.
Another important feature of
the proposed arrangement would
be allowance for maximum par-
ticipation by the nation's physi-
cists in operating the accelerator.
Glenn Seaborg, chairman of the
Atomic Energy Commission, and
Donald Rornig, science advisor
to President Lyndon B. Johnson,
reportedly told the university rep-
resentatives that it was clear that
only one accelerator of such a size
could be built. They said that if
regional or academic disagree-
ments developed the whole pro-
ject would be endangered.
The type of high-level consor-
tium that was contemplated at
the meeting would be similar to

Following are excerpts from
the resolution passed by SGC
last night concerning the re-
cent rise in movie prices:
.Student Government
Council believes that students
generally are opposed to the
admission price increase and
believes that they have some
justification for this position...
SGC urges all students at-
tending the Michigan Theatre
on Friday night, Jan. 22, to
attend the 7 p.m. showing and
remain in the theatre for an
extra half hour beyond the end
of the movie. While in the
theatre SGC requests the stu-
dents to maintain orderly con-
duct. SGC makes this' request
in order to demonstrate to the
management of the Butterfield
Theatres that it has widespread
support in its demand for a
price reduction ..
SGC requests that the man-
agement of the Butterfield
Theatres in Ann Arbor meet
with representatives of Student
Government Council immedi-
ately to hear student demands
for a price reduction.
SGC requests that the man-
agement of the Butterfield
Theatres issue a public state-
ment explaining the rationale
for the price increase...
SGC requests that this be the
sole extent of student action
until Wednesday, Jan. 27, thus
giving SGC and Butterfield'
Theatres one week to reach an
acceptable agreement b e f o r e
further action is taken.
All student organizations are
requested to encourage their
members to support SGC ac-
tion in response to the price
night and will consider this at a
meeting today. He indicated more
action than SGC currently plans
may be desirable.I

Student Government C o u n C 1
last night urged a student "stay-
in" at the Michigan Theatre Fri-
day evening to protest the recent
admission price increase at the
three Ann Arbor theatres.
The resolution, passed by a 13-2
vote, came after two houts of
SGC leaders said later the pur-
pose of the demonstration will be
to impress upon the theatre man-
agment both the student dissatis-
faction with the price increases
and the student support of further
SGC action.
With this as evidence of "wide-
spread student support," SGC
would request that the "manage-
ment of the Butterfield Theatres
in Ann Arbor meet with repre-
sentatives of the Council immed-
iately to hear student demands for
a price reduction," the resolution
Sole Extent
Therefore, SGC asked that "this
be the sole extent of student ac-
tion until Wednesday, Jan. 27."
If by that time the theatre chain
does not agree to a price reduc-
tion, SGC will consider further
However, representatives of sev-
eral groups indicated that their
organizations may hold protests

Council advocated last night. The
SGC action asked all student or-
ganizations "to encourage their
members to support (Council)."
Only Council Treasurer Eugene
Won, '66, and Robert Bodkin, '66,
voted against the action.
Earlier Vote
Bodkin had earlier submitted a
stronger motion for approval, ask-
ing for demonstrations Friday and
Saturday evening, which was de-
feated 8-7. He attributed hisneg-
ative vote on the accepted motion
to his feeling that stronger action
should have been taken.
Woh s aid he felt that SGC was
acting without full knowledge of
the factors involved in the Butter-
field position. He had called for
action only if Council investiga-
tion indicated the price increases
were unjustified.
The three Butterfield Theatres
in Ann Arbor, the Michigan, State
and Campus, raised their regular
adult evening and Sunday admis-
sion prices during the Christmas
recess from $1 to $1.25. The Mich-
igan Theatre will be showing
"Mary Poppins" Friday evening
when the student demonstration
is scheduled. The ticket price will
be $1.50 because the feature is a
Walt Disney production.
Original Motion
The original SGC motion by
Thomas Smithson, '65, was
prompted by a resolution passed
by the Lawyers' 'Club Board of
Directors on Jan. 13, urging SGC
to represent the students in pro-
testing the price increase.
SGC appointed SGC President
Douglas Brook, '65, and Smithson
as representatives of SGC in the
proposed meeting with the Butter-
field management.
Inter-Quadrangle Council indi-
cated its support of any SGC ac-
tion at its meeting on Jan. 14.
Tuesday evening, the executive
board of the Young Republican's
Club passed a resolution which.

urged an inquiry be made into
the facts of the price rise. The
board said that the University,
with its "one-third interest in the
Butterfield chain has sufficient
influence to obtain the facts," and
"to use its influence to rescind
the price increase if it is found
The YR's also stated they would
support any SGC action.

sociation also expressed its ap-
