Vote

It's

True--Johnson Outdoes Roosevelt

By CAROL HASKILL '
Panhellenic President's Council
yesterday decided to postpone un-
til next week a vote on a motion
that would initiate a system of
unstructured mixers in spring
rush.
Unstructured mixers, according
to a study committee which in-
vestigated the sorority rushing
system, are designed to improve
the general quality of the rushing
procedures.

The committee noted that the
unstructured system would permit
a girl to visit houses divided into
five districts.
While shehwould still ultimately
visit all the houses, she would only
be required to visit the houses in
one district each night.
More Relaxed
According to proponents of the
motion this procedure would re-
sult in a more informal and re-
laxed atmosphere, for a girl could
stay at a house long enough to

Board Delays Decision
On 18-Story Apartment
Ann Arbor's Housing Appeals Board yesterday postponed a
decision on whether the partially built apartment house at the corner
of Forest St. and South University should be allowed. a nine foot
variance on the required setback distance.
This would allow the building to be built only ten feet from the
property line rather than the prescribed 19 feet. The decision was

actives. It would also eliminate
the need to walk long distances in
cold weather since the houses
would be districted close together.
Bari Telfer, '65, chairman of the
rush study committee of Panhel,'
said there is something wrong with
both the structure and the image
of rush.
"We wanted all the houses to
appear equal, but this is a fal-
lacy. Mixers are hurting the sys-
tem," she said.
According to Miss Telfer girls
have always been able to skip,
houses anyway, and the idea of;
the new program is not to force
fattendance.
Promotes Superficiality
She criticized the present mixer,
structure, saying, "people who;
were leary about rushing and the
sorority system in general because
of its artificiality had their sus-
picions confirmed by the artifi-
ciality of mixers and subsequently
dropped out of rush."
Much consideration was given
to the smaller houses in discussing'
this proposal. Susan Groehn, '65,
president of Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma, said the proposed restructur-
ing "wouldn't help us or hinder
us-we would do it to suit the
three houses in trouble."

IFC Set To
Investigate
Pledge 'Raid'
By DONALD FLIPPO
The reported fracas between
Sigma Alpha Mu and Sigma Chi
that occurred last Saturday will
definitely come before the Inter-
fraternity Executive Committee
meeting next Tuesday night, John
C. Feldkamp, assistant to the di-
rector of student activities and
organizations, said last night.
Feldkamp explained there were
two possible charges that could
be levied against SAM: 1) physi-
cal mistreatment of pledges and
2) participating in a unified pledge
activity which resulted in public
disfavor toward the fraternity sys-
tem and damaged the house or
members of the fraternity.
Sigma Chi could be charged
with disorderly conduct and drink-
ing liquor in the fraternity house.
On Probation
SAM was found guilty of physi-
cal mistreatment of pledges only
two years ago and Sigma Chi was
penalized last spring -for disorderly
conduct. Both are still on proba-
tion.
Feldkamp said that he had talk-
ed with Robert Pincus, '66, SAM
president, and Frederick Lambert,
'66, Sig Chi president and that,
both have been requested to sub-
mit a report to him by tomorrow.
The reports will be forwarded to
the IFC executive committee
meeting, he said. He also inter-
viewed and asked for a report
from the pledge class president.
Scavenger Hunt
On Monday night both Pincus
and Lambert denied that any-
thing happened between SAM and
Sig Chi. Pincus said that a scaven-
ger hunt had been planned for'
the pledges, but the fraternity
was unable to get enough clues
distributed throughout the cam-
pus to make it worthwhile, so it
was called off early in the even-
ing.
When Pincus was asked to ex-
plain why several SAM pledges
were apprehended by Ann Arbor
police at Delta Gamma sorority
early Sunday. morning, he said
that there was a small party at
the SAM house, but not all of
the pledges could get dates in
time so they probably wanted to
have some fun on their own.
Pledges Injured
Pincus also denied knowing of
any SAM pledges taken to Health
Service as a result of the reported

-'postponed until next Monday,
when the board will meet at 2
p.m. in a closed session.
Attorneys for the Ann Arbor
Property Owner's Association pre-
sented a case against it on the
grounds it violates state and local
building codes.
The law states that if a wall of
a proposed building faces any
property line and contains win-
dows, the building cannot be built
within 19 feet of the line.
It was implied by the drawings
that the wall was to have win-
dows, but when the Department
of Building a n d Engineering
Safety reviewed them, this was
overlooked, and the ten-foot dis-
tance was permitted.-
The error was not discovered
until after construction had be-
gun; some $600,000 had been in-
vested before the permit was re-
voked. The footings were unusual-
ly heavy and expensive because of
the height of the 18-story build-
ing.
The law was passed in 1917 to
insure that the lower floors of a
building would get enough light
and air. If the building were built
next to the property line and an-
other built on the adjoining prop-
erty also next to the property line,
then the lower floors would not be
able to get sunlight and air, creat-
ing a health hazard.'
The constructors contended that
10 feet was sufficient and were
asking for a nine foot variance
from the board.
SGC Studies
'Grievances'
Student Government Council
last night approved the reports
and recommendations of five of
its 13 grievance committees. The
five will eventually be included in
the omnibus grievance package
which Co'uncil will finally submit
to the administration.
The committees reporting last
night were: communication (be-
tween the student body and the
University), residence hall over-
crowding, central campus housing,
off-campus housing and library
over-crowding.
The committees stressed that the
University should work closely with
representatives of the student
body in formulating policies on
housing and study facilities.

Pointing out the state's $571
million surplus, newly elected
board of edudcation member, Dr.
Peter Oppenwall (R.-Grand Rap-

chance for a sizeable increase.
Democrats Favor Education
Commenting on the democratic
margin, he said, "The Democrats
have always fought much harder
for education than the Republi-
cans." However, he added, "Be-
cause of the huge turnover in

cult to predict exactly what the

In Ann Arbor, re-elected Re-

that he felt the Democratic vic-
tory would not bring out a
sweeping increase in educational
appropriations.
The present revenue structure of

Hatcher Revives Tradition,

For Months'
Revolution Keyed to
Economic Problems
Of Tin Nationalization
LA PAZ, Bolivia (IP)-An army
revolt toppled the 12-year regime
of President Victor Paz Estenssoro
yesterday. He fled with family and
aides to Peru,, leaving the reins of
power in the hands of a military
junta.
The junta head, armed forces
commander Gen. Alfredo Obando
Candia, told the nation after the
24-hour uprising: "I have assumed
the responsibility of the govern-
ment to form a military junta that
will take charge as of now."
Fighting contniued in La Paz
after Paz fled. Air force plans at-
tacked buildings occupied by the
police and there were reports that
seven persons were killed and 50
injured.
Join in Attacks
Students and workers joined in
ground attacks on the buildings.
The planes also strafed Paz' mili-
tia gathered on a hill near the
capital.
As the news of Paz' overthrow
flashed through the city Bolivians
ran into the streets shouting "viva
the army." This was a far cry from
1952; when Paz rode to power on
the crest of a popular uprising that
threw out a military junta.
But for the past few months,
his government has been quite
shaky.
He lost popular support last
spring when he had the constitu-
tion changed so he could run for
a second consecutive four-year
term last May.
Claims Plot
In September, Paz claimed he
had uncovered a plot to assassin-
ate him and sent 34 political
leaders into exile. At that time he
imposed martial law, establishing
a virtual military dictatorship.
Without mentioning martial
law, Bolivian leaders said the 'mil-
itary control would be maintained
until constitutional law could be
resumed.
Then, last month Bolivia's vice-
president, Rene Barrientos, broke
with Paz and led a group of mili-
tary rebels to Cochambra, 350
road miles south of La Paz. They
objected to his several clashes with
rebellious students and miners and
demanded his resignation.
Paz blamed Barrientos for his
overthrow and charged that, in
some manner, Barrientos would
make himself president. The oust-
ed leader was interviewed after
his arrival in Lima yesterday.
Begin Skirmishes
The rebels began light skirmish-
es in the city early this week and
took over in a quick 24-hour
assault ending yesterday.

Cudlip Opposes Tuition Hike for 'U Students

By PHYLLIS KOCH
Here's one Republican vote
against a tuition hike.
Regent William B. Cudlip of
Detroit doesn't want to see any
further rise in tuition; "There
is a limit on the amount a stu-
dent should have to pay," he
says. In the past, Democratic
Regents have tended to be more
vocal in opposing tuition hikes
than Republicans. Cudlip, while
agreeing with them, maintains
that free education is unreal-
istic: "It is something to hope
for but not to expect soon."
Cudlip offered this view in
an interview regarding the role
of the Regents in University af-
fairs.
Cites Threat
Cudlip sees the greatest threat
threat to the University as the
increasing growth, accompan-
ied by the need for increased fi-
nancial support and qualified
fanni,

Cudlip thinks that small resi-
dential colleges are the best
way to handle this increasing
growth.
Intimate units of this type,
similar to those at Cambridge
and Oxford, would give the
larger university , a more per-
sonal aspect, he explains.
Good Step
Cudlip feels a good interme-
diate step to the residential
college has been made in the
3600 new housing units pro-
posed for 1966, which will be
"intimate", focusing on com-
mon interests of the students.
In viewing the over-all struc-
ture of the University, Cudlip
said that "the University's pri-
mary obligation is to the stu-
dents of Michigan."
However, he sees a benefit in
maintaining a national and in-
ternational environment on
campus. For this reason, Cud-
lip feels that the present per
rnt.+f ng i+_r fi+t, a r ad - cr

In his role as a Regent, Cud-
lip views himself in the ca-
pacity of a "policy-maker." He
compares the University to a
"business corporation with the
Board of Regents similar to a
Board of Directors responsible
to the stockholders." similar-
ly, he continues, the Regents
are responsible to the people of
Michigan, who elected them to
see that the University is "well
run."
Cudlip feels that the Re-
gents should be in direct con-
tact with the administration in
making the basic policy de-
cisions of the University. The
Regents' contact with faculty
and students, however, should
be indirect he observes. The
major policy decisions "should
come to them through the ad-
ministrative officers." "It would
be bad if the Regents were
meddling in the smaller admin-
istrative and academic details
nf the TTniverity .iuh details

the world," he stresses.
Cudlip's concern for the qual-
ity of education, in Michigan
marked his campaign as a Re-
gental candidate in March,
paign to the support of the
1963. Cudlip tied his cam-
newly proposed state constitu-
tion, citing it as "one of the
necessary first steps toward im-
proved statewide edducation."
He stressed its education ar-
ticle and tax provisions as the
primary means for aiding high-
er education. The new constitu-
tion's state board of edducation
"will be able to coordinate all
the edudcational facilities of
the state," he said in 1963. "It's
more flexible tax structure will
benefit the University and oth-
er state schools," he told citi-
zens.
Cudlip, a gradudate of the
Law School, was a delegate to
tion from Wayne County's 13th
district and served as chair-
man of its committee on style

students what they and their suc-
cessors can expect as the Univer-
sity grows while striving to main-
tain its academic excellence.
Studeint Questions
Following his speech, expected
to last 20 minutes, the floor will
be opened to student questions
transmitted by means of a roving
microphone system.
In holding what he hopes will
be the first of several student
assemblies, President Hatcher has
expressed his interest in fostering
communication between the ad-
ministration and the students.
The format for the address was
developed by a student committee
chairednby Interfraternity Council
President Lawrence Lossing, '65.
In choosing the growth theme, it
sought to enable President Hatch-
er to present a speech with both
appeal and significance.
The President hase been criti-
cized by some students for "poor"
communication with the rest of
the University community. Presi-
dent Hatcher has maintained,
however, that he is always willing
to meet and discuss student ideas.
