LeVeque's Proposal
'Favorably' Received
Report Dissents from University's
Tentative 10-Year Plan for Growth
A professor's set of recommendations differing from tentative
growth plans released last week by the administration reportedly
received a favorable reception at the meeting of the literary college
faculty last night.
The literary college should accept a "probably irrevocable" 40
per cent 1963-1968 jump in undergraduate enrollment, but then act
to curb its growth from 1968 to 1975, Prof. William LeVeque of the
mathematics department told the monthly faculty gathering.

Peace P









U.S., Britain
Heads Meet
WASHINGTON (R) - President
Lyndon B. Johnson and Prime
Minister Harold Wilson began
yesterday a joint search for guide-
lines the United States and Bri-
tain may follow in tackling the
controversial problem of NATO's
nuclear future.
The two leaders met twice
alone, for 90 minutes in mid-
morning and for about one hour
in the afternoon. During the af-
ternoon session the controversil
question of the United States-pro-
posed mixed - manned seaborne
nuclear missile fleet was "opened
up" and Wilson began outlining
his thinking on this subject.
No Blueprint
But Johnson and his guest ap-
proached the question on a very
general level, diplomatic inform-
ants stressed. Officials from both
sides repeatedly cautioned that no
"blueprint" for a NATO nuclear
force will emerge from the con-
ference and that MLF is only one
factor of the real issue: the de-
fense of the Western alliance.
The subject of the talks between
the two leaders was the world, as
one spokesman put it, and he re-
minded that the United States
and Britain are the only two
Western powers with world-wide
The Johnson-Wilson talks rep-
resent a continuation of the tra-
ditional Anglo-American dialogue.
More talks will follow on various
levels, the informants said, but
they were reluctant to say whether
Wilson will return to Washington
in January, as expected.
Coordinate Next Visit
Th prime minister, they said,
has a commitment to address the
United Nations General Assembly
and he will coordinate his next
visit to this country with John-
son's obligations.
Wilson will continue to outline
his ideas on NATO's reorganiza-
tion today, the informants said.
The two leaders and their aides
also intend to discuss again the
situation in Southeast Asia, and
Johnson is expected to bring up

"Although the University and

in improving housing conditions
in Ann Arbor, until recently stu-

Martin Zimmerman, chairman of
the Off-Campus Housing Advisory
Board, said recently.
The board, established early in
the semester by Student Govern-
ment Council, has been charged
to work in an advisory capacity
with the Off-Campus Housing Bu-
reau of the Office of Student Af-

Zimmerman, '66A&D, said the
board will work with Mrs. Eliza-

SGC will also recommend that

Such a flexible system could be
implimented through an exten-
sion of the already existing pre-
professional programs. Under such
:2 a system, the University will know,
fat least, the minimum number of
students that it can expect to take
certain required courses and can
therefore, make a more realistic
approximation of the number of
students who will be taking such

make arrangements with a grad-

These are the two proposals
drafted Sunday aimed at ending
student demonstrations at the
University of California at Berke-
The first was drafted by the
Berkeley Council of Department
1) The university community
ought to be governed by orderly
and lawful procedures in the
settlement of issues, and full
and free pursuit of educational
activities shall be maintained.
2) The university community
shall abide by the new and lib-
eralized political action rules
and await the report of the
(Academic) Senate Committee
on Academic Freedom.
3) Department chairmen be-
lieve acts of civil disobedience
on Dec. 2-3 were unwarranted
and that they obstruct rational
and fair consideration of griev-
ances brought forth by students.
4) The cases of all students
arrested in connection with the
sit-in in Sproul Hall on Dec.
2-3 are now before the courts.
The university will accept the
court's judgment in these cases
as full discipline for those of-
4) In the light of the cases
now and prospectively before
the courts, the university will
not prosecute charges against
any students for actions prior
to Dec. 2-3, but the university
will invoke disciplinary actions
for any violations henceforth.
The second proposal was ap-
proved unanimously by 200 fac-
ulty members for consideration
today by the Academic Senate.
The Berkeley Division of the
Academic Senate resolves:
1) That there be no disci-
plinary action against members
of the university commuhity for
past actions in connection with
the current controversy over
political speech and activity,
and that the university refrain
from pressing charges against
members of the university com-
munity arrested on Dec. 3.
2) That there be reasonable
regulation of political activity
to prevent interference with the
normal functioning of the uni-
versity, but that the content of
speech or advocacy shoul not
be regulated; and that the exist-
ing regulations should not be
viewed as final until the Com-
mittee on Academic Freedom
has reported concerning mini-
mal regulations necessary for
this purpose.
3) The university rules should
be revised so as to exempt from
university regulations bothoff-
campus student political activi-
ties and on-campus advocacy
or organization of such activi-
4) The futuredisciplinary
measures in the area of polit-
ical activities be determined by
a committee appointed by and
responsible to the Berkeley di-
vision of the Academic Senate;

to be final, except that students
on whom the committee imposes
penalties be permitted to appeal

200 Faculty
The second ' peace proposal,
drafted by some 200 faculty mem-
bers Sunday, was finalized late
last night. for its presentation to
a previously-scheduled Academic
Senate meeting today. If accepted
as its proponents expect it to be,
the proposal will go to the Berke-
ley administration and the Uni-
versity of California Regents.
While the administration senti-
ment is unknown, the student
protestors were satisfied that the
document fulfills their demands

of demonstrations nearly three
months ago.

first demonstration to protest re-

dent political activity. In recent
demonstrations of over 1000 people
last week and nearly 10,000 stu-
dents yesterday, they have added
a demand for the end of dis-
ciplinary threats to their leaders.
Main Concession
The dropping of charges against
them was the major concession
spelled out yesterday by University
of California President Clark Kerr
in a convocation in the Univer-
sity's Greek theatre.
The "peace agreement" present-
ed there and rejected by student
leaders had been drafted by a
group of department chairmen
and presented to Kerr at an in-
formal Sunday meeting which was
also attended by California Gov-
ernor Edmund G. (Pat) Brown
and several California regents.
It declared that the community
"ought to be governed by orderly
and lawful procedures," promising
that the university would let the
courts alone judicate the cases of

tinued yesterday morning in a
community theater. They are
charged with trespassing and
other civil violations for the sit-in

building last week.

podium on campus to disclose his
concessions. Minutes after he fin-
ished, Mario Savio, leader of the
Free Speech Movement which has
led the demonstrations, tried to
reach the podium.
