Berkson To Ask
To Leave Council
Sees Seat as Conflict of Interest;
Say SGC May Review Policy
A motion to abolish the Daily editor's ex-officio position on
Student Government Council comes before that body tonight.
Daily editor H. Neil Berkson, '65, plans to present a motion
to amend the Council Plan to exclude the editor's ex-officio seat.
Passage of the motion would reduce the number of ex-officios-the
non-elected council members-from eight to seven. '
f It might also be the first step toward a re-examination of the
purpose and usefulness of SGC's ex-officio positions several Council
members said. Since the motion is an amendment to Council Plan
"it requires a two-thirds majority.

New Study of












To Longtime

Berkson is not sure of' his votes
because of the mixed reactionto
his motion. He has indicated that
he expects and will support a
move to postpone the motion one
"Structuring the Daily Editor
into' SOC' creates an 'irrevocable
conflict," Berkson said. On one
band, he must participate in events
and functions; on the other hand,
he; must criticize and analyze
them. What the editor writes about
SGC cannot help but be colored
by the fact that he is a member
of it."
SGC President Tom! Smithson,
'65, said that historically the
creation of ex-officio positions was
justified on the grounds that they
contributed to SGC campus leader-
ship and knowledge of the Univer-
sity. "The Daily Editor's knowl-
edge' of the University is very
valuable," he commented.
Berkson argued that the value
of the Daily Editor as a source of
information is not worth the sac-
rifice of objectivity which ac-
companies it. He said that as a
non-member, he would be willing
to address the Council whenever
it requested it.
Several SGC members favor the
motion. League President Nancy
Freitag, '65, mentioned that it is.
important for all ex-officio mem-
bers, but especially for the Daily,
to keep lines of communication
with the administration open.
Membership on a critical body
such as SOC inhibits this, she said.
Those opposed to the move said
that the Daily Editor is valuable
as one of the most informed of
the Council members.

'U' Officials Said Wary
Of MSU's Influence
A group of out-of-state educa-
tors has joined a growing list of
study committees probing higher
education issues in Michigan.
The new group will investigate
the feasibility of public universi-
ties establishing branch institu-
tions. This issue has given rise
to many controversies in the past
few years- particularly between
the University and Michigan State
With the University on the brink.
of establishing its first full-fledg-
ed branch school at Flint, the
group's progress will be watched
with special interest here. The
group is expected to report to its
creator, the Coordinating Coun-
cil for Public Higher Education,
late in the year.
As a voluntary association of the
state's public four-year institu-
tions, the coordinating council
has no binding power on its mem-
bers. But once a position on
branches is established, any vio-
lation of that position will arouse
unfavorable publicity.
Harvey H. Davis, provost emer-
itus of Iowa State University, will
chair the study group. It will se-
cure information from statistics
and first-hand iinterviews with
leading Michigan educators.
Specifically,'its purpose is to ex-
plore "the best methods for han-
dling the youngsters who will be
inundating state campuses in the
next decade," Huff said. He outlin-
d three basic solutions which the
five-man group can study:
-The establishment of branch
schools by public universities; t
-An increase in community col-
leges, both public and private;
-The addition of four-year col-
leges. There are currently 10 state-
supported schools, the most re-
cent being Grand Valley State

His remarks came in answer to a
question from Fourth Ward;
Councilman Edward C. Pierce whoj
had asked that a report on the
matter be placed on next week's
City Council agenda. Fifth Ward
Councilman Leroy A. Cappaert-
last week asked that Larcom an-
swer certain questions, prompted
by the purported list, regarding
multiple housing in the city.
The questions included:
What is the current status of
4 multiple housing inspections? Are
the current budget and staff ade-'
quate to enforce the existing
code? Is there any need to change
existing administrative procedures
in dealing with code violations?
If through code enforcement, a
dswelling is condemned, what cur-
rently exists in procedures for as-
sisting the families displaced to
find suitable housing? Mrs. R. F.
Kraker, a member of the Human.
Relations Commission and super-
visor of off-campus housing in the
Office of Student Affairs, at the
Aug. 18 HRC meeting made the
claim that there are 500 homes
unfit for human, habitation.
Larcom said he had asked for
the list of 500 homes to be placed
on his desk but said "there is no
list." He observed that "some-
times very exaggerated things are

Reps. John Lesinski and John

May Return
To Give Vote
LOS ANGELES (P)-Sen. Barry
Goldwater recorded campaign tele-
vision appearances yesterday -
and stood ready to speed back to
Washington if Senate Republican
leaders decide they need his vote
against President Lyndon B.
Johnson's program of medical
care for the aged.
For the first time, the Repub-
lican presidential nominee was to
travel aboard an airkiner char-
tered for the campaign, flying
home to Phoenix late yesterday
and then on to the capital if he
decides to go.
Senate Republican Leader Ev-
erett M. Dirksen (R-Ill) was to
relay word to Goldwater late last
night on the medical care outlook.
A vote may come today.
A compromise version of the
medical care program is before
the Senate now as an amendment
to a bill boosting Social Security
benefits by five per cent.
Goldwater has declared his
support of the bill and his oppo-
sition to the medical care plan.
The scaled-down version would
provide Social Security recipients
over the age of 65 with hospi-
talization and nursing care bene-
fits, plus a $7 monthly increase
in basic payments.

Patrol man,
Found Dead
RAEFORD, N.C. (P)-A North
Carolina Highway Patrol trooper
was found slain in a cornfield off
U.S. 401 near the Hoke-Cumber-
land County line last night and
all off-duty patrolmen were press-
ed into a search for the killer.
The body of Trooper W. T.
Herbin, 32, was found in a rain-
soaked cornfield about 20 feet
from his patrol car. Coroner Frank
Frank Crumpler said Herbin had
"more than one" bullet hole in
the forehead and bruises from a
beating on the head.
Officers said there were signs of
a struggle. Herbin's nameplate and
badge had been torn from his uni-
form. There was also evidence that
he had been beaten with his own
blackjack and shot with his own
service revolver.
Col. David T. Lambert, chief of
the patrol, ordered a statewide
alert and went to the scene to
personally conduct the investiga-
,Maj. C. Raymond Williams, on E
of Lambert's top aides, asked news
media to request that all service
stations, bus stations and other
transportation facilities notify the
patrol if they saw anyone behav-
ing suspiciously.
Evidence on the scene indicat-
ed that Herbin had stopped a
motorist and the motorist killed,
him. Officers surmised that the
trooper was making a routine,
check of the stopped vehicle, since
there was no communication be-
tween him and his dispatcher.
There was also evidence that the
motorist fled into the cornfield
with Herbin in pursuit afoot. The
condition of the cornfield near
the body indicated- that Herbin
and his assailant had a violent
The fact that the trooper's
badge and nameplate were ripped
off his body while his uniform
was otherwise unmolester indi-
cated that his killer took these
items to prevent immediate iden-
tity. A number of other personal
items were missing also. 1

Good ol' Throckmorton was a pre-med student who enjoyed
y giving people the needle. Days when everything seemed to be going
wrong just brightened up when there was a jaundiced junior , or
a flu-ridden freshman to be saved by good ol' Throckie's hypodermic.
Tbrockmorton saw his future laid before him-his whole career
blossoming forth like a sulphur flower,
Fate, however, had reserved another end for Throckie's talents.,
Upon hearing that the folks in his home town of Medicine Hat,
Alberta had raised 4.5 million dollars for a Center for Acetylsalicylic
Research and Hotel Management, Throckmorton went into a late
season slump. The sight of a plump tricep filled him with trepidation.
Wandering woefully down Maynard Street, he stumbled over a
Coke bottle. He suddenly became depressed in the area of his
medula oblongata. When he came to, he was in a clean, well-lighted
place.. "Where am I?" he cried, involuntarily smiling at' the friendly.
faces peering curiously over tops of the typewriters around him.
"Why, the Michigan Daily," answered an intense young man with
a Chicago accent.
Thus' began Throckmorton's 'new life.

series on the pulse of the University's cordiality toward freshmen;
