c e*u
Of Unon, League
Combinaiton, Planned for Four
Years, Hoped To Come in March
Final barriers have been removed to implementation of the
Union-League merger.
The merger, in the planning for four years, will be completed
by March. The date was set Mt a Union-League merger meeting and
reported to League Council last night by President Nancy Freitag, '65.'
By October, both the Union and the League hope to be able
to submit to their respective governing boards a formalized plan
for the merger. The plan will be followed by the proposal in Novem-
ber, of a constitution for the combined organization. If both are

Michigan Republicans h a v e
t burled plans for Sen. Barry:.Gold-
water's- Sept. 26 visit to Ann
The decision was reached yes-
terday in Detroit when top Mich-
igan Republicans me with the
candidate's advance men. Benton
Harbor was chosen in preference
to Ann Arbor. Goldwater will also
speak in Midland and Detroit n
the same date.
Last Friday, Tyrone Gillespie,
chairman of the Michigan Cam-
paign Committee for Goldwater
and Miller said, "the senator will
definitely be in Ann Arbor."
The desire to. give Goldwater
more outside exposure and the :n-
ability to provide suitable speak- '
ing facilities for Goldwater in Ann
Arbor prompted the change.
Ted Kennedy Jr., Republican
chairman for the 2nd District, said
that possible city sites for a Gold-
water speech were either too small
or unavailable.
Kennedy also said that a Uni-
versity policy statement last
Thursday regarding a possible
visit "made some. of us' a little
skeptical as to the senator's re-
ception among the student body
and administration."
He was referring to a statement
made by President Harlan Hatch-
er in which the possibility of Gold-
water crossing the football field
at half-time of the Air Force game
was ruled out. Actually the Re-
publicans never contacted the Uni-
versity officially about the matter.
Since it would be impossible to
get good exposure for Goldwater
at the game or any other place
in the city the advantage of his
coming disappears, Kennedy inm -
Gillespie had stated that the
football game was a major factor
in plans, for Goldwater's Ann Ar-
bor visit. Last Friday, he said, "It
will be band day which should
bring a lot of parents down and
give us a big crowd without much
He said he felt another impor-
tant factor in the change of plans,
which had little to do with the
University, was that the Michigan
Campaign Committee felt that
"interested Ann Arbor residents
could see Goldwater in Detroit and
was anxious to give him outside

Zapproved, the Union. and League
will work out the 'complexities of
implementing the new constitu-
tion in January and February.
They hope to announce their of-
ficers and start functioning as a
merged unit by March.
In all their past discussions on
the merger, the League and Un-
ion divided relevant problems into
two areas--external (those relat-
ting the merged unit to the Uni-
versity) and internal (those in-
volving the structure of the merg-
ed unit). The external relations
were discussed and agreed uponr
in previous meetings, at the same
time preliminary talks were start-
ed on the internal relations.
On the basis of these agree-
ment on the merger, the Union
andl League plan to write aecon-
Barring any unforseen diffi-
culties in this discussion of in-
ternal relations--the most complex
area to be discussed--it is hoped
that the merger will go through
this academic year.
The merger has been in the
planning since 1962. At that time:
due to the growth of Assembly
Association, Panhellenic Associa-
tion and other organizations, the
League redefined its role as a
service organization. Previously it
had served as a governmental body
covering a variety of women's ac-
After the redefinition of role.
the League found that many of its
activities overlapped those of the
Union. The Robertson Study Com-
mittee established at the time was
instructed to look into the "feas-
ibility and advisability of merg-
ing the Union and League into one
co-ed organization, to be called
the University Center."
The report was sent to the Re-
gents, the League Board of Gov-
ernors, and the Union Board of
Directors for approval. The Un-,
ion board endorsed the report
without reservation and the League
Board endorsed the report in prin-
ciple. "
The Regents, however, felt that
it would be unwise at the time to
establish a University Center and
that it would be better to main-
tain a "separateness of functions
and responsibility" between the,
student activities, faculty center
conference center and other re-
lated functions proposed for the
In November of 1963, however:
a Union-League Implementatior
Committee was established, and
after trying and failing to work
out a plan to merge the board,

finally decided to concentrate on
merging only the student activi-

VP Choice
University President Harlan
Hatcher last night termed "most
helpful" a meeting held yesterday
with 12 student leaders to discuss
the appointment of a successor to
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis.
Lewis announced two months
ago that he will return to teach-
ing as soon as a successor is
named. He has held the top Office
of Student Affairs Affairs post
since it was created 10 years ago.
Douglas Brook, '65, executive
vice-president of Student Govern-
ment Council, commented last
night that most present at the
meeting felt "a qualified person
within the University would be
the best choice" for a successor to
Familiar with Activities
There was a consensus at the
conference that a candidate fa-
miliar with student activities at
the University "would have an ad-
vantage" over someone from out-
'side the :University, President
Hatcher said last night. He added
that there was also agreement
that the next OSA chief should be
"a respected member of the aca-
demic community."
Brook added that all felt Lewis'
successor "should be a good ad-
ministrator who defines sharply
.the lines of authority in the OSA.'
B ro ok and SGC President
Thomas Smithson, '65, said last
night that President Hatcher
would probably choose a successor
to Lewis during October. President
Hatcher commented that he would
make the decision "as fast as I
can with time for consultation."
Discuss with SACUA
He noted he will discuss the
matter today with members of
the' Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs. Prof. Wal-
lace Berry of the music school,
head of the SACUA subcommittee
on student activities, along with
other interested faculty members,
will attend the meeting, he added.
President Hatcher said those
present were pleased with the
"general pattern and direction of
OSA" since the reorganization of
the office three years ago.
The reorganization came as a
result of the Reed report-a fac-
ulty-student evaluation of the
role and future of OSA which ad-
vised many structural and philo-
sophical changes.'
There is precedent for President
Hatcher meeting with student
leaders for consultation before
choosing a vice-president. He
noted that when the Office of
Student Affairs was established
in 1954 he met "with a group of
outstanding students on campus"
and discussed the qualifications
the candidate should have.
Those who attended yesterday's
meeting, besides Brook and Smith-
son, were League President Nancy

SGC To View Grievances on

Adj urn,1

Student Government C o u n c il
will review a 14-page enumeration
of grievances against the Univer-
sity at its meeting tonight.
Council will also consider mo-
tions concerning off-campus hoas-
ing and an amendment to the
resolution, passed last week, elim-
inating the ex-officio seat of The
Daily editor.

The grievances motion, sponsor-
ed by Barry Bluestone, '66; con-
tends that "the welfare of the
student in his role as a Univer-
sity community citizen is being
The grievances center around
the lack of communication be-
tween students and the adminis-
tration and University planning,
especially with regard to the ratio
of students to classroom space..
Bluestone charges in his motion
that the University did not plan
adequately for rate hikes and ad-
mission .this semester, with the
result that the life of many stu-
dents has been upset and living
conditions- made undesirable for
others. -
In addition, Bluestone states
that the University has not com-
municated the reasons for such
action or what steps. it plans to
take toward correcting existing!
Not only living space but ade-,
quate facilities for parking, study-
ing and learning are in short
supply--due to lack of foresight
on the part of the administration,.
the motion continues.
Bluestone recommends that the
University limit admissions and
investigate its policy concerning
residence hall efficiency. The mo-
tion further requests that students.
be allowedto break their residence
hall contracts and that one se-
mester contracts be used, that
study areas be expanded by open-
ing classrooms in the evening and
student wages increased.
If the motion is passed it 1 ill
go to the administration as an
expression of student opinion.
Also included in the motion is
a clause demanding that the SGC
president contact the governor of
the state to discuss, "from the
student's point of view, the griev-
ances -that students have and the
future of the University from the
aspect of student concerns."
In other action, Thomas Smith-
son, '65, will sponsor a motion to
establish an advisory board to
deal with, off-campus housing.
Smithson said he hopes the board

The Student Government Council Study Committee sat in its
first session Monday night and held a preliminary discussion of the

Special To The Daily
HOWELL-Last night the Democratic Party convention for
Livingston County completed its business after a recess of three
days. The original convention, held Saturday night, had - been
violently disrupted.'
The party had been split Saturday over the seating of delegates
to the county convention whose status was legally in question.
These delegates were part of dissident elements which were
apparently led by Harry Hopkins, head of a Teamsters local in
"Detroit, Otto Wendell, leader of
the Teamsters political organiza-
tion in Michigan, and Brian and
Shawn Lavan, sons of Martin
Lavan, a former Livingston County
m fl jchairman who had been displaced

He said that various members
of the committee differed greatly
in their opinions of SGC. "Some
commented that ours was the best
student government in the coun-
try while others said that Council
has been purposefully sucked into'
the University establishment, bur-
dened with bookkeeping and never
really given a chance to get under
way at all.",
The study committee instructed
its executive secretary, Thomas
Copi, '67, to do research on various
other student governments across
the country. According to Copi,
the group is primarily concerned
with those schools whose student
governments "vary significantly
from SGC in structure, purpose
and endeavor.'
Other Schools
He said that he also planned to
study those campuses which do
I not have any form of student
government, specifically to dis-
cover how these schools handle
the same fuctions which SGC car-
ries out here.f !

department, Prof. Richard Cutler
of the psychology department and:

education school; SGC representa-
tives Sherry Miller, '65; Diane
Lebedoff, '65; Panhellenic presi-

istrative position.

The commission unanimously
instructed its director, David
Cowley, to ask City Attorney
Jacob Fahrner about a possible
amendment to the ordinance with
such provisions.
Commission members expressed
concern over what they termed
"flagrant discrimination" in .the
eviction of three families from the
Parkhurst-Arbordale Apartments.
They discussed the possibility of,
informing the owners of the
building of manager C. Frank.

practices. The group decided in-

Cowley said it would be futile
to bring the case of the faminies
under the city's Fair Housing Or-
dinance, since the law's constitu-'
tionality is presently being de-
cided in Circuit Court. He said the
commission could, however, call
Nubble before a closed session of
its Housing" Committee or could
hold a public hearing on the case.
The commission expressed a de-
sire that "the public know that
we don't condone such activities."
Some members said they felt more
social pressure would bring the
greatest results.
hAlan Jones and' Daniel Gray,
heads of two of the families- al-
legedly evicted, feel their sym-
pathies with. CORE were the
cause of their eviction. The com-
mission agreed.
CORE was picketing the build-
ing over the test case of the ordi-
nance in which Hubble is alleged
to have discriminated against
Negro Bunyan Bryant.
Don Miller, who was also evict-
ed, claims he had no contact with
CORE but that he was present
when the group helped Jones and'

on everything from the "M" on the Diag to the presidential campaign.
