By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
From the ranks of the faculty
each year is chosen a man who,
more than any other, is respon-
sible for seeing to it that the
faculty's voice is heard in Univer-
sity decision-making circles.
For the coming. year that man'
will be Prof. Richard Wellman of
the Law School. The responsibil-
ity came with his, appointment
to the chairmanship of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs (SACUA).
Prof. Wellman replaces Prof.
William Kerr, chairman of the
nuclear engineering department.
Wellman will have a formidable
task in crystalizing faculty opin-
ions. This Is .due In part to the
segmental or "state rights" ap-
proaches of most professors.
Local Perspective
Their' doctrine demands that
faculty members maintain terri-
torial. rights over the running of
their^ departments. and schools.
This limrits their scope. In the
Law School, faculty members help
"set admissions policies and aid in

the selection of new staff mem-
bers."
With their interest centered in
their own schools and their time
devoted to research and teaching,
faculty members "are.reluctant to
assume any more responsibilities
in a power sense," Wellman ob-
serves.
They are only too glad to leave
the running of the University to
the administrators. Their" task is
to be a "viable working advisory
body to the administration, aware
that advice is best received when
it is asked for."
Committees
To prepare recommendations,
SACUA relies upon the principle
of the smaller unit. It has more
See'Related Story, Page 7,
Education & Research Section
than 15 subcommittees, each
specializing in one field. Their
investigations explore all the ma-
jor issues of the University.
From the freedom and respon-
sibility committee last year emerg-
ed a proposal to alter the nature

of the University Senate and
SACUA. The provisions would es-
tablish a University Assembly of
65 persons elected to three-year
terms. SACUA would be reduced
to nine members.
When the issue comes up for
discussion inthe Senate next fall,
Wellman will remain neutral. He
does retain some doubts: "I don't
think that shrinking SACUA will
help it," he contends.,
Many Issues
For Wellman and SACUA, the
next year will be full of issues
demanding scrutiny. "We must
be prepared: to discuss the host
of new problems, arising with the
third semester." These will include
staffing, the new schedule and
admissions difficulties.
SACUA subcommittees will also
face a flood of new students, sent
by Student Government Council,
who wish to sit as ex-officios on
its committees.
But Wellman sees no possibility
for any form of University "gov-
ernment" composed of teachers
and students, due to the faculty's
advisory capacity.
