The Regents yesterday adopted two new by-laws, both dealing
with University policy and procedure concerning outside speakers.
Both new by-laws were taken from a report formulated'by a
committee under Prof. Samuel Estep of the Law School and adopt- .
ed by the Regents as a statement of policy at their meeting last
The first, which will create a Committee on Public Discussion
was adopted unanimously; the second, dealing with speakers spon-
sored by student organizations, was amended after a sharp fight,
and will only remain in force until the January Regents meeting.
Two Major Proposals
The Committee on Public Discussion will have two main func-
To carry on a program of public education which would prop-
agate an understanding of "the University's role as a forum"; the
second function is to play the primary part in putting together
"the most useful kind of public delate on important issues, and in-

sure that over a reasonable period of time the University hears re-
sponsible speakers with a wide variety of viewpoints."
This by-law was not given a number, a job which the drafting
committee will presumably take care of.
The ney by-law 8.11 concerns itself with student organizations
sponsoring public meetings at which speakers from outside the
University will be invited to participate.
Stating that it is the University's policy "to foster a spirit of
free inquiry and to encourage the timely discussion of a wide varie-
ty of issues," the by-law asserts that "restraints on free inquiry
should be held to that minimum which is consistent with preserv-
ing an organized society in which peaceful, democratic means for
change are available.'
Eliminates Committee
It dispenses with the old lecture committee which ruled on
applications for speakers submitted by student organizations and
substitutes four provisions which the organization must follow:
1) The speaker may not advocate that the audience take ac-
tion prohibited by federal, state or University regulations and that

"advocating or urging the modification of the government of the
United States or of the State of Michigan, by violence or sabotage
is specifically prohibited." It leaves the responsibility for inform-
ing the speaker of this restriction up to the student organization.
2) Only a student organization which has been recognized un-
der the general University regulations can sponsor speakers.
,3) The sponsoring organization must make all arrangements
for reservation of space and must complete a form listing the par-
ticulars of the meeting. The vice-president for student affairs must
certify that all appropriate steps have been taken before scheduling
the event.
4) A student organization violating the provisions of the by-
law is subject to the procedures and penalties constituent to the
violation of other University rules.
The second by-law is currently a temporary provision which
will be reconsidered by the Regents at their January meeting. By
that time it is expected that the Michigan Coordinating Council

for Public Higher Education subcommittee on speaker policy will
have made its report regarding a uniform Policy for all state col-
leges and universities.
The motion to adopt this as a temporary measure was made
by Regent Eugene B. Power of Ann Arbor as a compromise near the
end of the long meeting which at one point saw a motion for perma-
nent adoption fail. Most of the debate saw Regents Allan R. Soren-
son of Midland and Irene E. Murphy of Birmingham arrayed against
Regents Power, Carl Brablec of Roseville and Donald M. D. Thurber
of Detroit."
The sources of conflict were provisions one and four of new
By-law 8.11.
Explaining her opposition to provision one, Regent Murphy ex-
plained that the Estep committee, in its original report, had not in-
cluded the violent overthrow provision in their original report.
Committee Modification
"The sentence, not as worded here, was re-submitted to the Es-
tep committee and modified by it. Even though the whole report

Lewis told the Regents yesterday.
He explained that in the past it
had been necessary to make some
double rooms triples or single
rooms doubles, but now the Uni-
versity residence halls were back
to normal and these arrangements
have been discontinued.
At the beginning of the semes-
ter 60 men and 60 women were
placed in temporary quarters. AlI
of the women have now been plac-
ed and only five men still do not
have permanent rooms, Lewis add-
ed. The women's halls are operat-

have 3,371 residents, five above
Lewis noted that in future plan-
ning for housing at the University
there will be an attempt to give

the University will hope to offer
to the student a choice of which
type of housing to live in, in addi-
tion to which particular house. One

He declared that he supports his

meet the needs of the state," Rom-

Althen issued a statement say-
ing that he was "surprised that

body, the board of publications,
the faculty senate and the board
of regents."
Althen reported by telephone
last night that over 100 students
were picketing Newton's house in
protest over the action within
three hours of the dismissal. Pick-
eters included members of the
Young Republicans, Young Dem-
ocrats, the Conservative Club, the
Young Peoples Socialist League,
and non-political students, he said.
