Call Civil Rights Top Goal

A recently released final report of the University Young Republi-

The report called racial discrimination the "darkest blot" on

Dale Warner
Special To The Daily
CHICAGO-Dale Warner, '65L,
was elected chairman of Region V
(Michigan, Ohio; Indiana and Illi-

the Midwest Tung Republicans
here yesterday. The post has been
strictly honorary and non-func-
tional in the past.
In reaction to Warner's elec-
tion, Jim Conrad, chairman of the
Ohio delegation announceduthat
Ohio would withdraw from further
participation in the convention "to
protest the deal that Warner has
made with the Midwest machine."

The committee concluded that
the Young Republicans should
continue to acquaint themselves
with the civil rights problems of
the city of Ann Arbor.
, Specifically, they suggested that
the Student Government Council's
Human Relations Board send a
representative to the weekly meet-
ings of the Community Coordi-
nating Council. This representa-
tive would then submit weekly or
monthly reports to each political
action group concerned.
The report added that the com-
Smittee recommends that the
Young Republicans conduct stud-
ies in three areas: discrimination
in Ann Arbor real estate tax
rates, Negro participation in civic
affairs and discrimination in Uni-
versity employment practices.
SGC Participation
In regard to the University, the
report suggested that the SGC
Human Relations Board be reviv-
ed to the extent that regular meet-
ings are held and that all politi-
cal groups as well as other in-
terested groups be permitted to
be represented on the board.
The committee added that the
Human Relations Board should co-
ordinate and publicize all civil
rights activities of the various
University organizations and that
the board should seek to alert the
University to racial discrimination
incidents and practices, as well as
to work with the Community Co-
ordinatiig Council to seek the
elimination of racial discrimina-
tion throughout Ann Arbor and

that "club action in civil rights

LSA Faculty To See
Proposal Tomorrow;
Response Uncertain
Acting Managing Editor
The literary college faculty will
take its first look tomorrow at an
omnibus proposal to reduce and
overhaul the college's distribution
It stresses the student's obliga-
tion to select courses on a quali-
tative rather than a quantitative
basis by advocating a new distri-
bution arrangement which should
cut the average student's distribu-
tion load by about 15 hours.
He is currently required to ful-
fill 44-60 hours of distribution
courses depending upon his for-
eign language proficiency.
Lively Discussion Expected
Even if accepted after what
promises to be a long and lively
discussion, the multi-faceted pro-
posal will probably not take effect
before the fall of 1966. It does
not apply to students currently
enrolled here.
The proposed changes are be-
ing offered as a report submitted
by the literary college curriculum
committee, a faculty body, fol-
lowing a detailed study which in-
cluded the solicitation of student
The suggested changes would
relax requirements mainly in the
social sciences, natural sciences,
and the humanities. This lib-
eralization is aciT-edW by replac-
ing the semester hour, bulwark
of current regulations, with a
distribution system based on the
total number of courses fulfilled.
The revisions seek to improve
the student's latitude in planning
and fulfilling his academic pro-
gram and to encourage him to
take courses which are meaning-
ful but which would not have pre-
viously fit the distribution re-
quirements, a committee spokes-
man said.
Prof. Louis Orlin of the Near
Eastern languages and literature
department, chairman of the cur-
riculum committee, would not
comment on the report.
Dean William Haber of the lit-
erary college has also declined to
comment on the content or pros-
pects for the proposal.
However, reliable sources yes-
terday disclosed these features in
the report being unveiled tomor-
Social Sciences. The report rec-
ommends only three courses be
required in this' area. Two of the
courses would be taken in the
same department, but present se-
quence and minimum-hour re-
quirements would be dropped.
Current regulations provide a stu-
dent must take a minimum of 14
semester hours in at least two
departments, including a two-se-
mester sequence in one depart-
Natural Sciences. The commit-
tee urges the requirement to be
reduced to three courses here al-
so with the sole stipulation that
one course be a laboratory and
two of the three courses be in
the same department.
The current rule requires a min-
imum of 12 semester hours includ-
ing an eight-hour two-semester
sequence in a laboratory course.
Humanities. The present regu-
lations would be eased, requiring
the student to take three courses,
with two in one department.Cur-
rently, students must take 12 hours
of work divided into a two-semes-
ter sequence and a four-hour
course in separate humanity
groupings - literature, fine arts
and philosophy.
Math-Philosophy. For students

who desire more math and philos-
ophy in their programs, the com-
mittee is recommending they be
allowed to substitute one course
for a required course in the so-
cial sciences, natural sciences or
humanities. T h i s substitution

'65 Michiganensian Captures Great Ye

Because alumni reminiscences usually 'start with a misty "re-
member the time we . . ." and continue with a recount of past
adventures, the 1965 Michiganensian is. a book of memories-it cap-
tures the undergraduate in action.
The 'Ensian's 22-page introductory section spotlights scenes
of action: the fishbowl ledge, the Engine arch, the classroom, the
car, the Diag, the football stadium.
"Campus organizations offer all students the opportunity for
active participation," states the introduction to the Organization
section. Some of the best memories for alumni come from student
organizations, where the action is: the staging of Soph show,
rehearsing for Musket, publishing literature and the news, cam-
paigning for SGC.

But the Montgomery airport was
completely idle and nearly de-

administrators in the party ex-
pressed surprised relief.
"We'll save the violence for the
concert, I guess," joked one viol-
inist. The program includes
Strauss' "Till Eulenspeigel's Merry

cal Symphony," both boisterous
_ compositions.

All was quiet on the University front after protests of the last'
two weeks.
The University of Michigan Student Employes Union requested
President Harlan H. Hatcher to prepare a statement of the admin-
istration's position on student economic welfare. This will help,
eliminate the breakdown of communications between students and
the administration on this issue, it said. Student Government Council
passed a motion supporting UMSEU's request.
At the same time the University's Faculty-Student Committee
to Stop the War in Viet Nam was not idle. The group announced
its plans for the future which include an all-campus "Pay-In" to
be conducted April 8 to 15 to collect funds for further activities.
Activitiesnow in the planning stage include a nation-wide teach-in,
a delegationto participate in the faculty Viet Nam lobby in Wash-
ington April 17, sending representatives to other universities to
help them organize similar activities and giving assistance to those
people who will be attending the march on Washington.
Role of Student
Discussion of the role of the student in the University was
prevalent this week. The question of Academic freedom was discussed
by a panel at the University's chapter of the American Association
of University Professors. The panel agreed, though for different
reasons, that the establishment of a board to review student
allegations of prejudice or error in grading would be unfeasible and
perhaps detrimental.
John J. Manning, administrative assistant in the literary college
junior-senior counseling office, giving the first in a series of "Last
Chance Lectures" emphasized the need for greater student-faculty
contact in-order for the student to form an integrative principle of
education and give himself some direction.
