New Party Revea

A new political party organized
to oppose what its members call
Student Government Council's
"inactivity" will seek temporary
recognition as a studentorgani-
zation at tonight's. SGC meeting.
The party, "Governmental Re-
vision of University Policy," has
entered nine of its members in
the forthcoming SGC race, with
hopes of gaining a majority on
Council. GROUP President Rob-

ert Golden, '67, who will oppose
SGC Executive Vice-President
Gary Cunningham, '65, in the
contest for SGC president, said
yesterday that SGC has failed
to echo student desires and has
failed to act upon student needs.
Golden blamed "inertia" for
"SGC's unwillingness to take nec-
assary action and to follow its
resolutions." He maintains that

Harrington Asks Plan
For Economy, Schools
"We must hire the poor to destroy poverty-we must make a
massive investment in human beings," Michael Harrington, author
of "The Other America" and chairman of the League for Industrial
Democracy, said last night.'
Speaking at Rackham auditorium in the first of a series of
lectures on American poverty, Harrington called for national economic
planning and a vast investment in education to combat poverty and

Newly Chosen
IFC Officers
Discuss Plans
A four-point program empha-
sizing academic mindedness, a
greater percentage affiliation, fra-
ternity system unity and improved
publicity and public relations was
discussed ''at a meeting of the
newly-elected senior officers of
the Interfraternity Council last
"Aligning programs and projects
to these general goals of the new
administration" was the purpose
of the meeting, according to IFC
President Richard A. Hoppe, '66.
An executive subcommittee will
be set up to determine a means for
improving the academic standing
of fraternities and their pledge
classes. The senior officers also
discussed raising of the grade-
point required for initiation as an
incentive for higher scholastic
achievement and emphasized the
importance of faculty advisor and
tutor programs parallel to those
found on other campuses.
The new fraternity administra-
tion made plans for a fraternity-
presidents counseling training pro-
gram' to equip presidents to coun-
sel the men in their houses or re-
fer them to the facilities available
from the University.
To increase the number of affi-
liated men on campuses, the new
administration plans to reorganize
mass rush meetings, implementing
visual aids. It proposes a stronger
open rush in addition to partici-
pation in summer orientation and
use of vacation rush functions.
IFC will also attempt to attract!
new chapters to the campus.
The new administration will
suggest joint parties and com-
bined pledge class community
service projects as a means of
fostering unity in the fraternity
system. It will also make an effort
to improve communications be-
tween IFC and its member houses.
A new publicity committee will
function in achieving a working

Athens, where technological slaves
the things that are truly human.
Harrington also advocated spend-
ing $5 billion yearly for public
works and government services
such as the domestic Peace Corps
and social work which "change
the quality of human life by
breaking with the old idea of the
custodial care of the poor."
Teachers' Aides
He noted that the use of slum
dwellers with only eight-grade
educations as teachers' aides and
social workers had been successful,
and suggested that additional in-
vestments in education could both
fight poverty , and provide jobs
for the poor.
Harrington said he was .enthu-
siastic about current proposals to
combat poverty such as medicare,
the Appalachia program, and the
war on poverty. "But," he said,
"too often they're only the be-
ginning of the beginning."
He added that "the government
and the Ford Foundation gen-
erally aren't going to finance the
kind of radical change the prob-
lem calls for. It will involve con-
flict, not consensus, and political
action to -change the government
as well as support it."
A new approach to poverty is
necessary, Harrington maintained,
because the country now has a
new poverty problem. "Before, we
had an expanding economy and
minimal skill requirements.
Now, he said, "The poor cannot
Lmove upward because the economy
is becoming much more automat-
ed. We now have two classes, the
engineers and the janitors-but
education has failed to keep, the
He cited studies demonstrating
that one quarter of those drafted
into military service were reject-
ed for "mental reasons," meaning
that they had less than a seventh-
grade education. "The studies
showed they were the children of
quite similar people," Harrington
"Poverty in our society, in short,
has become hereditary-and a
dangerous situation is developing,"
he continued. "Although 20 per
cent of the nation is living in
poverty, over 25 per -cent of the
nation's youth live in those pov-
erty-stricken families. It's a fright-
ing and complex problem."
Harrington was introduced by
William Haber, dean of the Liter-
ary college. Introducing the sym-
posium was University President
Harlan Hatcher. With Haber on
a "reactor panel" were Elton Mc-
Neil, psychology professor, and
William Morse, professor of edu-
cational psychology.

The organization would work to
implement its program in the
event that it achieved a major-
ity on council. Golden admits that
all GROUP candidates might not
be elected, but said that "even if
only two are elected we'll try
again at the next election. Mean-
while, those members of GROUP
that do win seats on Council
would work to get as much of our
platform adopted as possible," he
As a minority, GROUP council
members would act as a "catalyst"
on SGC, "stimulating the council
to action," Ellen Buchalter, '67,
contends. Miss Buchalter, who is
vice-president of GROUP and is
also running for council, said that
GROUP has a "greater level of
awareness" due to the fact that
its members "are drawn from the
fraternity and sorority systems
as well as the University dormi-
tories and off-campus housing
Russell Linden, '68, GROUP
member and SGC candidate, noted
that there are "three major planks
in the GROUP platform." He add-
ed that "GROUP is not just com-
plaining about the issues in their
platform-we have methods pre-
pared to implement our propos-
Linden said that economic wel
fare for the student is one of the
major goals to be achieved. "The
University must make a commit-
ment showing that it is involved
and will be responsible for the
students' economic welfare," he
One of the major proposals in
this area would be that of re-
questing the Regents to suspend
the bylaw which prohibits the
University from entering into
competition with private rrrch-
ants, Golden said. Then the Uni-
versity would be free to open
and operate a University Depart-
ment Store, similar to Harvard'
"Coop," maintained Golden.
Contending that students are
"grossly mistreated in the area of
off-campus housing," Golden sug-
gested that in order to "end the
economic exploitation of the cap-
tive housing market, the Univer-
sity should look into the possi-
bility of constructing low-cost off-
campus housing."
Academic reform, including such
programs as working with already
existing groups like the Literary
College Steering Committee, and
possible student initiation of
courses, would also be stressed by
GROUP, Golden said.
Consider New
Study Plans
Student Government Council
tonight will discuss the feasibility
of administering a work-study
program for students with finan-
cial need. The federal government
would pay 90 per cent of the
program's expenses.
Council also will hear reports
on the progress of recent legisla-
tion concerning the off-campus
rental agreement and counseling
policies in the literary college.
Finally, SGC will act on sub-
stituting an ex-officio member
from the University Activities
Center (the designation for the
newly-merged Michigan Union
and Women's League) for the two
ex-officios presently representing
these organizations on Council.

stitutionality hearing on the city's
Fair Housing Ordinance is March
The commission heard a report
on its recent recommendations to
City Council on the proposed
amendments to the' Fair Hous-
ing Ordinance.
Municipal Court Judge Francis
O'Brien decided that the ordi-
nance was unconstitutional last
spring. City Attorney Jacob Fahr-
ner will appeal his decision in
Washtenaw Circuit Court March
The legality of the ordinance
was first considered last spring
when Parkhurst-Arbordale apart-
ment ,manager C. Frank Hubble
was charged with violating the
ordinanceiby allegedly refusing to
rent a unit to a Negro.
Cowley said the facts of Hub-
ble's case may come up in the
March 12 trial as well as the ques-
tion of the legality of the ordi-
nance. Hubble was been charged
with two other violations of the
ordinance since the initial one
last spring.
The State Civil Rights Commis-
sion is also considering Hubble''
violations. Cowley said the state
CRC is in the process of reaching
the public hearing stage for Hub-
ble's three alleged violations.
Chairman Paul Wagner told the
commission that he reported last
week to City Council the commis-
sion's recommendations to the
Fair, Housing Ordinance amend-
The amendments, proposed by
First Ward Councilwoman Mrs.
Eunice Burns, would extend the
housing units covered by the ordi-
nance, prohibit discrimInatory
practices by real estate agents
and prevent retaliation against
persons supporting the ordinance.
Wagner said he told council it
was the commission's duty to rec-
ommend any action it thought
would improve human relations
but it was not its duty to decide
what was legal. He added he ask-
ed council to eliminate bipartisan
politics in its consideration of
the amendments but that council
"blew up."
Mrs. Burns, who is also the
Democratic candidate for mayor.
was present at last night's meet-
ing and said the amendments
might come up for a first reading
at tomorrow's council meeting.
In other business, the Housing
Committee reported that the low-
cost housing problem was not e
function of the commission but
a function of City Council.
Cowley said he was in the
p;ocess of forming a committee
of interested citizens on low-cost
housing. "The community must
face the problem, not just the
Human Relations Commission,'
Cowley added.
Cowley introduced Henry Wal-
lace, Grad in social work, to the
commission. Wallace is a student
assistant working on commission
business two days a week as part
of his Community Organizational
Cowley also said the city hasn't
formulated an anti-poverty pro-
gram yet but that the county
committee for this purpose is
planning an organizational meet-
ing soon.
The committee wants to plan
its program on a county-wide bas-
is and provide a proposal to meet
the needs of the people and fol-
low national trends.

JACKSON - A federal- civil
rights commission got off to a
peaceful start with its first public
hearing in Mississippi yesterday,
but the violence of the last few
months continued to mark voter
registration efforts in Alabama.
In Selma, Ala., a civil rights
worker was struck on the mouth

day during a demonstration by
about 25 Negroes outside the Dal-

aide to Dr. Martin Luther King
Jr., was struck after he called the
sheriff a brute and said,, "'I know

Vivian, 40, was taken to a hos-
pital where, a deputy said, one
stitch was taken.
Vivian was then taken to the
Dallas County jail. Clark said he
