Motion Asks Examination of College'Lo

The literary college faculty last night overwhelmingly passed a
resolution calling for controls on the college's growth for the next
four years.
The resolution, outlined in section one of a three-part motion
presented by Prof. William LeVeque of the mathematics depart-
ment, stipulates that a quota for freshman admissions should be
set and maintained at not more than 3100 for the years 1965-68.
This would amount to freezing the freshman admissions rate at the
enrollment figure anticipated for

MSU Rules'
Ease Sought
More than 4200 Michigan State
University undergraduates have
signed a petition calling for lib-
eralization of student regulations.
The petition was accepted by
MSU Vice-President for Student
Affairs John A. Fuzal recently
after having been turned down
by the chairman of a student-fac-
ulty subcommittee on off-campus
The petition calls for women's
hours to be extended in accord-
ance with current rules here in
Ann Arbor, and the extension of
off-campus housing privileges to
students under 21.
At present, under MSU Presi-
dent John Hanna's administra-
tion, undergraduate co-eds under
21 or living in dormitories must
return to their residences by 1
a.m. on weekend nights.

The resolution emphasizes that
this step would not halt college

seats respectively this morning as the counting of ballots from the election carried on far into the morning hours. GROUP candidates
were leading for four of the seven seats up for election. Steve Schwartz of GROUP (right) was leading-his organization's slate, as well
as other candidates for regular SGC seats.

IQC Complaint
The IQC complaint against
GROUP was based on GROUP's
distribution of campaign iiaterials
under the doprs of the men's
houses of Markley Hall.
According to IQC Presidentl
John Eadie, '65, such distribution
is in violation of IQC rules. How-
ever Eadie said he had told the
GROUP represenative who had
called asking for permission to
distribute literature that they
could do it "if, and only if, they
received the expressed permission
from the house presidents."
Stretching Rules
"I realize that I was stretching
the rules. But the house councils
can distribute their own litera-
ture which could include cam-
paign literature if they called it
their own," Eadie added.
According to Eadie, GROUP
went ahead and distributed mate-
rials without the consent of the
house presidents.
Myles Stern, '66, a GROUP
candidate, said, in response,

for Student Rights. The aim of
this group is to foster increased
communication between students
and administrators on issues af-
fecting the campus. The CSR has
a 16-man steering committee
which meets regularly to review
the progress of its actions.
Michael Kindman, a member of
the CSR's steering committee,
told The Daily yesterday that the
CSR had "purposely decided not
to seek an official charter for its
organization." The group felt such
a charter might eventually limit
its activities, Kindman said. All
student organizations must obtain
such 'a charter from the MSU stu-
dent government.
CSR's Goals
The CSR's major goals center
on these issues:
-Students over 21 should be
allowed to live in housing of
their own choice, subject only to
civil laws rather than MSU regu-
-MSU regulations which "dis-
criminate" against female students t
should be abolished no later than'
the fall term of 1968;
-There should be an immedi-
ate adoption of liberalized rules
for women;
-All students, while not on uni-
versity property or in university-
approved housing should be sub-
ject only to civil laws.
There was evidence of dissen-
sion in MSU administrative quar-
ters over the student petition
presented last week. Louis F.

Kirk Calls Poverty 3oth Spiritual and Material'

advantage of the merger is an or-

Iron Out Problems
Although the new officers real-
ize that there are problems to be
ironed out, such as the implemen-
tation of the new structural or-
ganization, the creation of a
working relationship between the
Boards of Directors, and the es-
tablishment of the relation of the
Office of Student Affairs to the
UAC, they believe that the sincere
interest and good will of all in-
volved will make it possible to
settle these problems satisfac-
The purpose of the UAC is not
to "take over" all campus activi-
ties, but to provide more and bet-
ter activities of the sortaalready
provided by the Union and the
League, Holmes pointed out. One
of the most important ways of
accommodating the growth of the
University is to provide more op-
portunity for small activities that
will cater to the individual and
increase contact between students,
faculty and administration.

"Material poverty is only half the question," Russell Kirk, pro-
fessor, author and contributor to the National Review, said last
night. "Poverty is spiritual poverty as well."
The conservative later ran into some liberal crossfire.
Speaking in Rackham Aud. as part of the University Activities
Center's symposium on American poverty, Kirk maintained that
"poverty is the problem of the uprooted and the bewildered rather
than of workers with low wages or lack of skills, which are its re-
sults, not its causes."
The cure for poverty, Kirk declared, "must be the restoration
of hope and purpose in life. It must come through meaningful work
and honest charity led not by another vast layer of bureaucracy but

"those who can't adjust to the capitalist system" should be brought
back into "the mainstream of American life."
"But when the mainstream is a sewer, then it changes the analy-
sis completely," Hayden said. "Charging that "the dominant forces
in this society are business forces," Hayden asked for an end to the
"lack of organization of the poor," adding, "We have to ask whether
the poor are twisted or whether society is twisted. An individual
can't somehow get out of his situation when society does not pro-
vide enough jobs, schools, or housing."
View Archaic
Kirk, hwever, disagreed, calling Hayden's call for organizing
the poor "an archaic, Jack London solution whereby the poor
rise up and right their wrongs. That won't work because the poor
are a minority-as they are today-and because they are not ordi-
