Trigon Case
In a clarification of an earlier
stand, Interfraternity C o u n c i 1
President Richard Hoppe, '66, yes-
terday voiced his agreement with
a recent decision finding Trigon
fraternity guilty of religious dis-
At the same time, the newly-
installed fraternity leader said
Trigon will be appealing the deci-
sion to the assembly of fraternity
president within several weeks.
The tentative date for the appeal
is March 11.
Trigon was judged guilty of re-
ligious discrimination by the IFC
executive committee, a student-
alumni unit, early last month.
The chapter was charged with re-
quiring prospective members to
take a religious vow "repugnant

Fee Hikes
Eadie said, "The chances are
very good that the source of new
revenue will be a hike in residence
hall fees within the next two!
years-probably this fall."
He also predicted that if the
hike comes, it will be made this
summer after contracts are sign-
ed, as was done with a $34 increase
last year.
"I think that unless the Univer-
sity changesbits policy, the in-
crease will be made after the
signing of contracts," claimed
-Hike After Termj
Should the hike be made, Cutler
anticipates it would be made after
the end of the current term.
"Any increase depends on a
series of factors including the ap-
propriation from the state Legis-
lature which will not be finalized
until after the spring trimester."
However, he assured that should
any increase be made, "notifica-
tion will be made ahead to the
Not Considered Yet
As of yet the Residence Hall
Board of Governors has not open-
ly considered the possibility of a
hike in dormitory fees. The ques-
tion of how to meet the acknowl-
edged increase in costs due to such
factors as increasing wages, will
be taken up in the near future.
In other action last night, the
Inter-Quadrangle Council amend-
ed a previous motion that Eng-
lish Language Institute students
not be given rooms in residence
halls, made recommendations re-
garding dormitory room deposits
and blasted Student Government
Council block ticket sales.
IQC said that ELI's should be
allowed to live in residence halls,
but they should not be given spe-
cial privileges on room assign-
ments, i.e., specifically kept from
doubled up rooms.
Ticket Sales
IQC said that since Student
Government Council has, "proven
beyond a doubt its inability, its
ineptness, and its complete stu-
pidity in the field of block ticket
sales,". that all future changes in
block ticket sales policy be "sub-
jected to Inter-Fraternity Coun-
cil and IQC scrutiny."
IQC added that in view of the
recent difficulties of the housing
units in purchasing block tickets,
SGC has, "managed to show
thorough irresponsibility and ut-
ter disregard for its constituents
by providing impractical, short
sighted, block ticket sales rules.
The! IQC allegation was that
SGC made premature. announce-
ments regarding ticket sales and
did not enforce existing rules.
"SGC has played havoc with the
usual machinery of local student
governments by making unan-
nounced, unpublicized, and arbi-
trary changes."
IQC charged that SGC has "cre-
ated far more problems than it
has solved in its attempt to meet
a basically simple problem."

PROF. JOHAN W. ELIOT of the public health school has refused

With a willingness to go to jail for his principles, though he

already paid by deductions from his salary (about $100).

seek to channel IFC's efforts
against discrimination into posi-

He conceded that the way to

require "the process of levelling

As IFC president, Hoppe will

Expect Course
By Next Month
The course description booklet
is expected to be out within 20
days when it will appear as a spe-
cial supplement in The Daily.
The time schedule for the Fall
term will be out by Mar. 8, when
preregistration begins. The time
schedule for the Spring-Summer
term has already been' published,
and preregistration for that term
is now in progress.
Chairman of the course descrip-
tion booklet, Gary Cunningham,
'66, Student Government Council
executive vice-president, termed
response to the evaluation pro-
gram good. He said about 8500
course evaluation questionnaires
were submitted.
All Departments
The booklet will contain de-
scriptions of courses from all of
the departments of the literary
college, as well as a few for courses
from the business and music
Cunningham said that though
all departments of the literary
college will be represented, it was
not possible to rate each course.
He said most of the evaluations
are on introductory courses and
courses with large lecture sec-
tions. There will be evaluations on
some small recitation sections, but
none on seminars.
Cunningham said the descrip-
tions, each about 200-300 words,
summarize the replies from the
questionnaires. They describe types
of teaching methods, readings and
exams. They also relate students'
feelings on the relative difficulty
of courses, how up-to-date course
material is, and whether or not
the courses are generally worth-

Leaders Are
At Meeting
Yet Governor Agrees
To 'U', President's
Eight-Point Statement
Despite personal urging from
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher, Gov. George Romney
yesterday stood firm on his de-
mand that the University hold
up its plans to expand its Flint
Both leaders disclosed the im-
passe after their meeting yes-
terday morning.
The two men were still dead-
locked after a one and one-half
hour conference. Hatcher main-
tained that the University will
expand in Flint and asked the
governor's backing to obtain funds
for the plan. Romney insisted on
a delay until his Blue Ribbon Citi-
zens' Committee can issue its long-
range plans for state education.
Methods of Control
The immediate causes of their
conference were Romney's state-
ments last Thursday that if state
colleges do not cooperate in the
creation of a state plan for high-
er education they may face "high-
ly centralized methods of control."
Hatcher said he asked.Romney for
the conference after "we went to
Flint last Thursday and found we
were being ordered not to act on
Hatcher said he presented the
governor with eight major argu-
ments for expansion of the Flint
campus, points which he said
Romney "gen'erally agreed" with.
Hatcher noted, however, that
although Romney agreed with the
eight arguments, the governor kept
returning to the stand he took
later at a press conference. "If I
permitted the University and the
community of Flint to make this
decision, there is no reason why
other boards couldn't make similar
decisions on their own," Romney
Direct Authority
Although the governor's opin-
ions carry great weight in the
state, he has no direct authority
to halt the University's expan-
sion in Flint. The state constitu-
tion gives the Regents "general
supervision of their institution
and the control and direction of
all expenditures from the institu-
tion's funds."
He said he had no doubt of
the desirability of a four-year
school in Flint, but said even the
increasingly large number of high
school graduates in the state "has
not caused me to change my con-
cern about a decision of this mag-
nitude being made ahead of con-
sideration by the Legislature and
others who have the ultimate re-
sponsibility of determining what
our overall policy should be."
Hatcher said Romney's reac-
tion to Flint was "quite a shock,"
as the University has had "no
indication" that the governor dis-
agreed with its Flint plans. Ob-
jection at this time was especial-
ly surprising, Hatcher said, in
light of "the fact that the pro-
gram at Flint has been a mat-
ter of public knowledge over a
No New Branches
His eight-point statement to
'the governor emphasized that in
expanding its branch at Flint, the
sUniversity is not setting up a new
branch. Flint is, Hatcher's mes-
sage states, "an integral part of
the University . . . and has been
so recognized for a decade by the
governor and the Legislature.

Plans for a freshman class at
Flint are as orderly .. . as plans
on any other campus.
"It's a shame," Hatcher said
later, "that everyone has lost sight
of the 126 students who have
been accepted at Flint. They are
asking for the bread of education,

Warns Technology

Prof. Charles Killingsworth of
the economics department of
Michigan State University said
last night that modern technology
creates economic effects which
pepetuate poverty.
Killingsworth emphasized that
governmental measures, specifical-
ly the tax cut proposals of the
President's Council of Economic
Advisors, have had their greatest
impact "upon the soft edge of the
unemployed-they have left the
hard-core unemployment problem
The economist spoke at Rack-

expansion since 1947 has created
one million new white collar jobs
but, through automation, elimi-
nated an equal number of blue
collar jobs. Merely expanding pro-
duction, he said, does not ensure
jobs for the unskilled.
"I don't contQnd that educa-
tion is the sole factor in worker
adaptability. Rather, it is sig-
nificantly correlated to the other
factors which can cause adapta-
bility. Education is a part of
status, presentability, trainability
and all the other factors which
combine to secure job opportuni-
ties as a worker," Killingsworth
