IFC Votes To Hear
Tri on Bias Charge
Lossing Reveals Committee Has No
Legal Access to Affiliate Statements
The judicial body of the Interfraternity Council last night voted
to hear the case of Trigon social fraternity Dec. 7. But in a discussion
preceding the vote, the body admitted that a constitutional tech-
nicality may restrict the information it can summon at that hearing.
The IFC executive committee, which doubles as the executive and
judicial branches of the fraternity system, set up the December hear-
ing to help resolve whether Trigon has legitimately been indicted on
grounds it discriminates in its membership selection.
That indictment was made in'early October by IFC's membership
committee, a three-man investigating body which charged Trigon

Hits Talk of
Merger Rift
Michigan Union President Kent
Cartwright, '65, last night said the
student officers of the Union and
Women's League have reached a
compromise on the activities mer-
ger of the two organizations.
He branded as false a report
in The Daily yesterday which
stated he and League President
Nancy Freitag, '65, were bicker-
ing about the compromise. Miss
Freitag was not available for
comment, but she too reportedly
has challenged the accuracy of
statements which were attributed
to her in the Tuesday paper.
The compromise proposal, ham-
mered out Sunday in a meeti-ng
of the Union and League student
officers, sets up a joint student
activities organization which is
equally responsible to the govern-
ing boards of both organizations,
Cartwright said.
The merged activities organi-
zation will be headed by a co-edu-
cational group of four students
which will sit on both governing
The new proposal differs- from
an o r i g i n a 1 recommendation
drawn up by the Union and
League student officers which
placed student activities solely un-
der the jurisdiction of the Union's
Board of Directors.
Not Acceptable
This was not acceptable to the
League's Board of Governors, who
amended the original recommend-
ation last Thursday and necessi-
tated a compromise, Cartwright
Now, while the merged activities
unit will be responsible to both
boards, the co-educational student
executives will tend to participate
more actively on the Union board,
he said.
For example, while the student
head of the merged activities or-
ganization will also chair the Un-
ion's Board of Directors, the stu-
dent position as vice-chairman of
the League board will be aban-
doned to a non-student member,
Cartwright explained.

However, IFC President Law-
rence Lossing, '65, revealed last
night that the executive commit-
tee, which is empowered to take
disciplinary action, is not given
access rights to the membership
"This body is placed in a par-
adoxical situation," Lossing told
the executive committee. On the
one hand it has the authority to
judge the Trigon case. On the
other hand, it is without legal
means to demand the documents
for which the fraternity is on trial,
he added.
The fraternity will be asked to
volunteer the documents.
The apparent contradiction in
the committee's function and au-
thority was explained as an "over-
sight" by Lossing. He blamed Stu-
dent Government Council for an
inadequate grant of authority last
At that time, the Council, which
has authority over IFC and all
student organizations, completed
its membership regulations. In
them, it pledged its own investi-
gatory membership committee to
work "in conjunction with" the
IFC Tnembership body. This in-
cluded a grant of full access to
membership selection statements.
The SGC regulations do not,
however, provide for the IFC ex-
ecutive committee to view these
documents and there are stiff
penalties prescribed for any au-
thorized examiner who divulges
the contents.
Two members of the IFC execu-
tive committee, Frederick Lam-
bert, '65, and Treasurer Alan
Schwartz, '65, contended that SGC
had "by intent if not by the letter
of the law" delegated authority to
review the documents to the ex-
ecutive committee.
Lossing disagreed and said he

THESE ARE THE AREAS the residential college's planners have to work with. If current plans are
approved, the college presently being planned will be in area 1; a second residential college will fill
area 2, and area 3, much of which is low and wooded, will be recreational space. If the planners de-
cide the first college needs more space, its campus may be extended into area 1 or 3. Central Campus
and the Medical Center are to the lower left of the area shown; North Campus is to the upper right.

The planning committee in-
cludes the dozen faculty members
who will compose the nucleus of
the teaching staff in the resi-

meeting every two weeks all fall.
Site Plans,
Two weeks ago the committee
saw the site plans of the college
for the first time, and discovered
it would have only half the space
many of them had assumed it
would occupy. A second residential
college, it was explained, would be
located on the other half of the
At the time, they heard that a
final decision had been made to
allot only 10.8 acres to the college,
which they felt might not be ade-
quate space.
However, Vice - President for
Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns
and Vice-President for Business
and Finpnce Wilbur K. Pierpont
told the committee last week that
more land is available for the col-
lege, if needed.
Since then the planners have
come up with several other alter-
-The size of the college could
be reduced from a probable 1200
students to 900.
-The residential college could
take more or all of the space cur-
rently planned to hold two col-

-Some or all of the residence
college buildings could be built in,
an area which is now planned for
recreational space. The problem
with this plan is that the area is
both low and wooded, and the
committee is hesitant about re-

moving the trees. Since that area
is relatively isolated, vehicular
access would also be a problem.
. The planners will meet next
week to decide whether to ask for
more space or reduced size for the
residential college or to approve
the plans as they are.

City Bars
New Arb'
Road Idea
The Ann Arbor City Planning
Commission last night rejected the
idea of putting a north-south
thoroughfare through the Arbor-
etum area.
The commission took the action
by deleting the portion recom-
mending such action from the
Harland Bartholomew and Asso-
ciates traffic planning report pre-
sented to the commision.
John G. McKevitt, assistant to
the vice-president for business and
finance, presented reasons for the
University's opposition to the plan
in the public hearing preceling
the commission's decision.
No Part
He said that the Bartholomew
recommendation for the Arbore-
tum thoroughfare was an "ele-
ment of thoroughfare development
which has not been a part of
either the City Thoroughfare Plan
nor the Central Campus Plan."
He added that such a plan is
completely inconsistent with the
assigned University uses for the
Arboretum and that the University
plans make no provision. for any
change from these present uses. As
evidence of this, he noted that
the University has recently added
fencing and limited vehicle traffic
in the area.
McKevitt recommended that
other possibilities for resolving
the north-south traffic demand in
this area should be considered by
the city and the University, joint-
He added that "many of the
street closings on the proposed
Central Campus Plan require
careful coordination with recom-
mended improvements to major
thoroughfares adjacent to the
campus, and all development ac-
tivities on the campus should be
designed to permit the obtainment
of major thoroughfare rights-of-
way with adequate capacity po-
tential for long-range needs.
An Ann Arbor citizenwhospoke
at the public hearing concurred
with this view and added that
much of the "urban decay" around
the central campus is a result of
the road network and :he amount
of traffic it carries.
McKevitt said that )utside the
one area of contention, "the con-
sultants' report of Bartholomew
and Associates provides an exert
evaluation of the traffic and park-
ing phases of the Central Campus
Plan and the University finds its
solutions sound and reasonable.
Some of the report proposals
have already been recognized and
the city and the University are
cooperating in making the im-
provements suggested."
The city acted on an earlier
study recommendation in vacating
E. Washington between Fletcher
and Forest. This will enable the
University to build a parking
structure to serve the new Dental
School complex and adjust service
routes to the area in keeping with
the campus development plan.
The University previously in-
dicated its willingness to provide
land at the Huron-Forest and the
Washtenaw-Geddes-Forest inter-
sections for street improvements.

Buddhist Priest Rejects
Saigon Government Policy
SAIGON (A)-South Viet Nim's most influential Buddhist leader'
disassociated himself from Premier Tran Van Huong's troubled gov-
ernment yesterday but indicated he will not actively oppose it.
The statement by the Rev. Thich Tam Chau came on the eve of
Ambassador Maxwell Taylor's departure for Washington for a review
of U.S. policy in Viet Nam.
Taylor is believed to favor boibings of selected targets in neigh-
boring Laos and Communist North Viet Nam, a question likely to come
-$up in the discussions. But he also

lasted for three hours, and follow-

The demonstrations had started
Sept. 3 when the administration
ruled that student use of univer-
sity property for such activities
was illegal. As a result, eight stu-
dents were suspended. Prior to the
change of rulings, a student was
not allowed to campaign for out-
side political candidates or groups.
The administration also stated
at that time on-campus plan-
ning for "illegal" off-campus ac-
tivities was not allowed.
However, a change was not
made in policies retarding a prior
statement that students convicted
of off-campus "illegal activities"
would also be disciplined by the

The Free Speech Movement, a

Berkeley Acts On

Campus Political Activities Allowed;
Self-Regulation Remains as Issue
Action taken yesterday by the administration of the University
of California at Berkeley granted to dissident students virtually all
of the rights they have been seeking for the past three months.
University rules have been changed to allow the students to
solicit funds for organizations and recruit members on the Berkeley
campus, according to Eric Levine, chairman of the Berkeley chapter
of Students For a Democratic Society. They are now also allowed
to meet on campus to discuss off campus activities.
Yesterday's happenings followed a demonstration in which

The state may have to cut down
drastically on its capital expen-

to meet "the urgent problems fac-

ernor, said yesterday.
Noting. that capital improve-
ments cost the state $50 million
yearly, Staebler, who will head a
Democratic study of state educa-
tional needs, remarked that this

if it were appropriated for educa-

ital improvements through long-
range bond issues rather tnan

should be investigated, according
to Staebler
If the annual capital improve-
ment expenditures were lowered
there would be more money avail-
able for operating expenses which
include educational appropria-
tions, Staebler said.
Various methods for attaining
higher appropriations for educa-
tion will be investigated by the
Democratic Policy Committee, ac-
cording to Staebler, its recently
appointed chairman.
This committee which has tra-
ditionally "served as a sounding.
board for the Democratic state
chairman," according to Demo-

search Director Richard Miller,
will now take an active role in
state politics because of the Dem-
ocratic control of the Legislature
and Staehler's personal leadership.

Staebler contended that his
committee's report which will bas-

work of such groups as the "blue-

Manning Explains South African Apartheid Policy

With a population of 16 million, the Republic of South Africa is
controlled by its three million whites, Prof. Emeritus C.A.W. Manning
of the University of London said recently.-
In an attempt to "contribute to clear thinking about South
Africa," Manning spoke to a political science class here and an NSA-
sponsored coffee hour in the Union.
Manning compared the white minority's economic control of
South Africa with the conditions that existed in the early United
States, saying that enterprise in the U.S. wasn't created by the
American Indians, just as it wasn't created by the Africans in South
Africa, and the white minorities controlled both.

Referring to these examples, he said that "Africa is purporting
to do the same thing with the Africans" in setting up independent
countries within South Africa. The separate tribal homelands could
be set up as independent governments, he maintained, but added that
it was questionable whether or not the Bantu (Africans) wanted
independence. He maintained that the desire for self-rule should come
from within "as in India and Eire."
South African Prime Minister Hendrik Vervoerd was quoted in
1951 as saying that the Transkei (an area in South Africa) would
never be fully independent, but says today that the Africans in
South Africa can be "as free as Ghana" if they want to be, Manning
said. Vervoerd would prefer that they didn't take this freedom
though, he added.
