10o courses which henceforth must
be pre-registered. This system will
provide each participating student
with his complete class list in Jan-
uary, thus erasing many of the
traditional course-switching pyro-
technics in Waterman Gym.
CON-CON-The University's in-
dependent constitutional status,
with the Regents rather than the
Legislature as its governing body,
would be retained under the pro-
posed new state Constitution. The
Constitutional Convention last
spring also heard President Hatch-
er successfully urge rejection of a
"super-board" which would have
compulsory coordinating powers
over the state's academic institu-
FEDERAL sAID President
Hatcher this fall enunciated the
University's position on federal
aid: such subsidization would be
welcomed to help finance and con-
struct classrooms and academic
buildings, but would be rejected if
it went towards faculty salaries.

sity is defenitely committed to es-
tablishing co-educational housing
next fall. Originally, the OSA had
planned to institute it this fall,
but held off for a year due to stu-
dent protest and administrative
feasibility. South Quadrangle and
Mary Markley Hall will be the first
units involved.
STATE OF THE 'U'-In heeding
the "relentless" pressures upon the
University, from on and off cam-
pus, the University will continue
to expand by means of "continued
steady growth in a controlled man-
ner so that there will be no decre-
ment in quality," President Hatch-
er told the faculty during his
"State of the University" speech
last October. He pointed to the
"baby boom" and departmental
pressures for expansion as some
of the forces which eventually find
answers such as year-round opera-
versity Senate Committee on Aca-
demic Freedom and Responsibility
is undertaking a study on "the
extent. to which the faculty is re-
sponsible for the development of
University policy," Prof. Reed,
chairman of the committee, re-
ported two weeks ago.
Teaching Center
LEARNING - Last March the
deans of the University's schools
and colleges recommended that a
center for the study of problems
associated with teaching and
learning be established. The cen-
ter was approved by the Regents'
at their October meeting and is
now in operation, directed by Prof.
Stanford Ericksen of the psychol-
ogy department.
Among its services are the col-
lection and distribution of infor-
mation on improved teaching
methods, informing the staff of
available aid, stimulating improve-
ment in instructional techniques
and carrying out projects of inter-
est to faculty members.'
SENIOR WOMEN-Abolition of
hours and automatic apartment
permissions were two rules changes
granted for senior women by the
OSA this year. Recognition of their
greater "maturity" was the main
reason cited for the easing of re-
versity's President found time this
year to take two trips abroad 'to
study educational methods and
University projects in South Amer-
ica and ,the Far East.
Family Feuds

U' Tuitions
Pay To Run
Student tuition fees are used
primarily for operating expenses
and not for construction, Vice-
President for Business and Fi-
nance Wilbur K. Pierpont said re-
Although two Texas schools,
Texas Southmost College and Pan-
American College, charge students
special building use fees to help
pay off bonds financing construc-
tion, Pierpont maintained that the
University priority gives to fac-
ulty salaries and other operating
As the need for classrooms has
increased "general reconsideration
of this policy has taken place
across the country," he comment-
ed. At present the University is
not really short of classroom
space, but needs additional labo-
ratory facilities in the architecture
college, literary college, dental
school, engineering college, and
Medical School Pierpont said.
When the new addition to the
Medical School is completed, the
laboratory space in the East Med-
ical Bldg. will be freed for other
uses, according to Pierpont.
The only building towards which
a segment of the student's tuition
is directed is the SAB, the Michi-
gan Union and other student ac-
tivity centers.
Pierpont indicated that last
year, student tuition funds fi-,
nanced faculty salaries.
University building is "going
along as well as at other state
colleges, but it is not as noticeable
as at some campuses such as
Western Michigan University," he
Unit Considers
Credit Hours
The Literary College Steering
Committee discussed the problems
of fixed credit hours at its regular
meeting yesterday afternoon.
It delayed taking any official
action until its next meeting Jan.
7, when it will consider formulat-
ing and passing a resolution on
the problem. This will be present-
ed to the Honors Steering Com-
mittee in a special joint meeting
on Jan. 8.

The Organization for Economic
Co-Operation and Development is
a body of European nations, the
United States, Canada, and Japan
formed for the purpose of discuss-
ing and evaluating systems of aid
and financial systems of the na-
tions involved.
Describing the OECD, Prof. An-
tonin Basch of the economics de-
partment, noted that it is "purely
a discussion and advisory body,
with no power to make policies or,
executive decisions."
"The OECD was primarily es-
tablished at the request of the
United States, which felt that it
was donating too large a share of
the aid being given to underde-
veloped countries," he said.
There is no direct relationship
of a formal nature between the
OECD and the Common Market,
Prof. Basch noted. "However, the
Common Market countries are an
integral part of the program and,
next to the United States have
contributed the largest sums to
the aid of the underdeveloped
countries," he added.
Congressman-elect Neil Staeb-
ler (D-Mich) will speak on the
upcoming 88th Congress at 7:30
p.m. today in Rm. 3RS of the
Michigan Union. The talk is spon-
sored by the Young Democrats.
Taylor Meeting...
Harold Taylor, former president
of Sarah Lawrence College, will
meet informally with students to-
night to discuss the arms race,
university reform and other areas
in which he has been active. All
those interested in attending the
gathering should call Thomas
Hayden, Grad., for final time and

Organization Views Financial Systems

"If the present policy of the
major European nations, the
United States, Canada, and Japan
continues, OECD might, through
economic consultation, lead to
some beneficial results," accord-
ing to Prof. Basch.
He stated that he could see only
one danger, and added that even
that was not a very acute problem.
"Should an international reces-
sion develop, some nations might
be reluctant to continue their par-
ticipation in the program," he
"However, I do not think this is
too great a problem, because the

majority of the countries in the
OECD would probably strive even
harder, if such a recession should
develop, to try to stop or slow
the recession," he .added.
"Since the organization was just
recently formed (1960), it is too
early to tell anything concrete
about the future of OECD," Prof.
Basch said.
"However, I think that the good
will exists and that these nations
have a sense of urgency about the
problems which are confronting
them, which could lead to suc-
cess on the part of OECD," he

TRIBULATIONS ENDED--These students are shown trying to
sign up for their desired classes during that semi-annual official
madhouse known as registration. This will soon be a thing of
the past as the University expects to initiate complete pre-
registration within the foreseeable future.

Controversial Issues
5) Student Government Council
went through some controversial
elections and issues during the past
In January the Council defeat-
ed a motion by former Daily edi-
tor John Roberts, '62, and Brian
Glick, '62, which proposed giving

students full authority over stu-
dent rules and conduct. A stu-
dent "bill of rights" also was turn-
ed down.
In March Council went through
one of the most confusing elections
in its history. On March 19th, two
days before the election, Stanley
Lubin, '63, was disqualified for
violating election rules concerning
circulation of petitions, as was
Katherine Ford, '64, the next day.
When the election results were
all in Miss Ford was elected as a
write-in. However, Lawrence Mon-
berg, '63, who won the sixth va-
cant seat, was not seated after
SGC accepted a report from its
Credentials and Rules Committee
that cited him for violating elec-
tion rules, also concerning circu-
lation of petitions. His seat was
left vacant.

versity of Michigan. Internal is de-
fined as all organizations which are a
part of the University of Michigan.
Organization: This board is to be
composed of ten members, one chair-

bers. Selection procedure is to be
the same as for the other Related
Postponed: Appointment of chairman

Adopted: That SGC hereby appoints
Nordine Ait-Laoussine and Pete -Eising-
er as Co-Chairmen of the WUS pro-
gram at the University of Michigan.

Adopted: That SGC hereby appoint
Robert Ross and Howard Abrams as

It is understood that these appoint-
ments are subject to approyal from
both USNSA and the United States
Chapter of l'Union Generale des Etud-
iants Musulmans Algeriens.
Adoped: The following expression of
student opinion:
Fact: On Friday, December 7, 1962, it
was announced that Michigan State
University at Oakland had refused to
renew the contract of Professor Samuel
Shapiro. MSU-O Dean George Matthews
said that the "principal factor" in Sha-
piro's release was of an academic na-
ture, but he did not indicate any spe-
cific matters. "They are private," he
said. Matthews also said that Shapiro
"would have had a better chance," of
being retained if he had written and
said less about Cuba and Latin Ameri-
can affairs, "We expect a certain
amount of scholarly work in his field

of specialization," Matthews said.
Matthews further stated: "His writing
has been on the level of journalism
and i na man seeking tenure we look
for scholarship."
Professor Shapiro has taught History
at MSU-O, particularly American His-
tory. He is the head of the History De-
partment at MSU-O. He has recently
published a biography of Richard Hen-
ry Dana and has just finished a book
concerning United States-Latin Ameri-
can relations. Shapiro says that he is
"presently working on a book which
will discuss Daniel Webster in his years
as United States Secretary of State."
Professor Shapiro has been under at-
tack from some of the local news. me-
dia for his positions on the Latin
American policy of the United States
government. He has been highly criti-
cal of U.S. policies and has spoken
publicly on the subject a number of
Principle: One of the principles that
is inherent in the ideal of academic
freedom is the belief that the political
and public views of a person are not
proper criteria for evaluating the com-
petence of this person as a faculty
We believe that the university should
be a place where ideas and policies are
under continued criticism and evalua-
tion. We hold that students should be

concerned with the pressures in our so-
ciety which narrow the range of view-
points that can be legitimately express-
ed in public institutions.
We affirm the desirability of con-
troversial viewpoints being expressed on
university campuses; views which chal-
lenge American institutions and poli-
cies from both the left and the right.
The ideal of a free university is that
values, social programs, and accepted
traditions acn be only debated, evalu-
ated, affirmed or rejected.
Declaration: Student Government
Council does not feel sufficiently in-
formed to make a judgment on all the
factors affecting Professor Shapiro's
dismissal. However, the fact that his
views on Latin America and Cuba evi-
dently played a role in the formula-
tion of this decision is an action which
constitutes a serious breach of academic
freedom and, as such, Student Govern-
ment Council strongly condemns it.
Furthermore, Student Government
Council believes that if the basis for the
dismissal is of an academic nature, as
has been stated by MSU-O Dean George
Matthews, there seems to be no ration,
al explanation as to why such reasons
should not be made public with the
consent of Professor Shapiro. This
would be a'particularly desirable course
of action since his dismissal has gen-
