SGC Sets Motion
On Speaker Bans
Demands 'Freer Expression of Ideas,'
Advocates Change in Regents' Bylaw
Student Government Council passed a motion with an 8-6 vote
last night that the Regents revise.University lecture policy, Bylaw 8.11,
to make possible a "freer expression of ideas than currently exists."
The motion, introduced by Michigan Union president, Robert
Finke, '63, recommended that the University eliminate "those barriers
in the current Regents' Bylaw which seek to deny the University freer
access to opinions and ideas and have as their aim the enforcement'
of predetermined standards."
However, the Finke motion stated that the University should not
provide facilities for speakers who advocate forceful or unlawful over-
throw of our constitutional govern-

ment. The responsibility for pre-
venting such speakers on campus
should be in student hands.
Institution Responsible
Finke said that the denial of
platform facilities to such speak-
ers was the responsibility of a
state institution.
The Regents are expected to take
action on recommendations con-
cerning speaker policy which were
developed by a faculty-student
lecture committee in the near fu-
Finke's motion was offered as a
substitute motion for that of Daily
Editor Michael Olinick, '63. Oli-
nick's motion called for the re-
moval of all restrictions on out-
side speakers and asked the Re-
gents "to guarantee all student or-
ganizations the right to sponsor
whatever lecture programs they
Powers Attends
In support of the Olinick mo-
tion, former Council member Phil-
ip Power, '60, who attended the
meeting and was asked to join the
Council, said that the usual ration-
ale for limiting speakers was fear
that a controversial speaker might
embarrass the University. How-
ever, he contended that academic
freedom should not be affected by
such fear.
At the start of the session, Coun-
cil president Steven 'Stockmeyer,
'63, read a letter of resignation
from former SGC member Kather-
ine Ford, '63, who will not finish
out her term as an elected Coun-
cil member.

The temporary injunction by

Meanwhile, the Mississippi legis-

New Dean

Tells Plans

When Stephen H. Spurr was
appointed dean of the natural
resources school last June, the
school, as a faculty committee
put it, was at "a critical time
in our development."
During the 10-year tenure of
Stanley G. Fontanna, the school
had built up its faculty, moved
into the remodeled West Med-
ical Bldg., and developed its
wood technology department.
But the necessary "period of
consolidation" was at an end,
the committee said. (When--
ever a new dean is going to
be appointed for any college
or school within the University,
a faculty group within tnat
school makes a comprehensive
re-examination of its strengths,
weaknesses and potential, and
submits a report to University
President Harlan Hatcher
New Steps
Now, "the school is strong
and ready for new steps ahead,
but there is some difference of
opinion as to the direction in
which those steps should oe
taken," the committee's report
"Without doubt the direction
depends very heavily upon the

individual selected as the new

... an invitation

Ask Address
The Michigan League has invit-
ed Anatoly F. Dobrynin, Soviet
Ambassador to the United States,
to address University students on
"some non-controversial topic"
during the current semester.
Dobrynin received an initial let-
ter of invitation from the League's
Education and Culture Committee
last May, and answered shortly
thereafter that he was interested
in speaking here, but was uncer-
tain about his schedule of activi-
ties for the fall.
The Culture Committee wrote a
second invitation during the sum-
mer, which was answered by an
embassy aide who stated that Do-
brynin was still interested, but also
still uncertain.
Writes to Administration
During the time which elapsed
between the second letter and
registration, Dobrynin wrote to
the University administration -
who, like the department of state,
had not been consulted by the
Culture Committee.
Director of Financial Aid Walter
B. Rea subsequently called in sev-
eral committee members, as well
as League President Margaret
Skiles, '63, to inquire into the ex-
act nature of the invitation and
Dobrynin's current status as a
potential lecturer.
Rea said the administration's
concern over the invitation is not
concerned with a possible viola-
tion of the University speaker pol-
icy (Regent's by-law 8-11), but be-
cause "it's customary for someone
in the administration to know
when a major dignitary may be
coming so that arrangements for
the speaker's comfort and safety
can be made."
Not Test Case
"We didn't intend this to be a
test case, since Dobrynin is no
rabble rouser, although it could
work out to be just that. We had
hoped that the administration.
would make an exception in its
by-law enforcement and permit
him to come here - if an excep-
tion can be made for this sort of
thing, it could weaken the by-law,"
Barbara Kahn, '64, chairman of
the Culture Committee, said.
"The committee invited Dobry-
nin because we thought it would
be a unique experience for stu-
dents to see and hear him since'
he could present first-hand infor-
mation rather than propaganda
about Russia. We don't believe
he will give us propaganda because
the committee intended to give
him a non-controversial topic on,
which to speak, like a discussion
of the student in the Soviet
Union," Miss Kahn added.

Will Rece~ive .Invitation

"We feel research is useful to the educational process; professors
are better if engaged in a project and the students get fuller educa-
tional opportunities," University vice president for research and Dean
of the Graduate School Ralph A. Sawyer said yesterday.
Speaking at the meeting of the American Nuclear Society on
"Research at the University," Dr. Sawyer discussed some of the many-
sided problems which arise when there are more than $30 million worth
of funds to be dealt with.
More than one-quarter of the University's total budget last year
dealt with research expenditures. Of that, only $2.5 million came
from the taxpayers of the state, while more than $23 million was
allocated by the federal government.
Ten Billion Yearly
The government puts approximately $10 billion yearly into re-
search and development. Of that about $1 billion goes for research,
the rest goes for development, and half of that figure is spent by uni-

Denounce Bili
Opponents, mostly Republicans,
denounced the bill as the greatest
grant of power ever given a chief
executive in the trade field. Some
Republicans said they were voting
against the bill because the Sen-
ate had defeated amendments
they consider necessary to control
these powers.
The bill would extend the 28-
year-old trade law for five years
to June 30, 1967-the longest ex-
tension ever provided.
The heart of the measure is i1s
provision for the U. S. to work
out effective economic arrange-
ments with the blossoming Com

this as a means of providing new
markets for U. S. goods, creating
hundreds of thousands more jobs
and increasing the export .surplus
to end the troublesome balance
of payments deficit.
