OSA Revises Judic

John Bingley, director of stu-
dent activities and organiza-
tions, yesterday explained the
additions made by the Office of
Student Affairs to the new
Joint Judiciary Council con-
stitution and appendix.
The additions, made during
the summer, were placed in
what Joint Judic Chairman
EHarry Youtt, '64, had considered
was "the final and completed
draft" of the constitution and
appendixes last May.
These additions, placed in a
separate section entitled "Other
Sources of Authority" estab-
lishes a disciplinary committee
outside of Joint Judic which can
"consider students involved in
actions of a severe but delicate
nature." This committee is la-
belled the referral committee in
the appendix.
Take Teeth
Yout complained that these
additions as written "take a
great deal of the teeth from
Joint Judic's power."
Bingley re-emphasized that
the changes had been made in
the "Other Sources of Author-
ity" section and not the con-
stitution itself.
These were added, he said, at
the -request of students "so that
they would know what other
sources of authority exist."
The "other sources of author-

ity" derive from a regental dele-
gation of power to the Vice-
President for Student Affairs
to handle student discipline.
Bingley noted. that the inser-
tion of the disciplinary com-
mittee was mainly to handle,
"delicate situations" where stu-
dents are involved in illegal ac-
tivities such as morals cases and
where action has to be taken
In the past, these cases were
handled individually by his of-
fice. "But I was unwilling "to
continue taking the sole re-
sponsibility and therefore felt
that the disciplinary committee
would serve a much needed
functioi," Bingley added.
Features Unaltered
Bingley said that these ad-
ditions will not alter. the new
features of the Judic constitu-
tion, particularly the provisions
for a University Committee on
Standards and Conduct.
The committee, which re-
places the old sub-committee on
standards and conduct, will
serve as a final appeal board for
Judic cases. It will not be used
to appeal the discipline com-
mittee decisions.
It will consist of three fAc-
ulty members and two students.
Functions Unusurped
The disciplinary committee
will not usurp the function of

Despite Isolated Outbreaks
By The Associated Press
Attendance was reported nearly normal at most of Alabama'sI
newly desegregated public schools yesterday but a boycott 'was
staged by some white pupils in Birmingham and there was a brief
outbreak of minor violence.
The Birmingham school board sternly warned parents of absent
white pupils they could be prosecuted unless the children return. The

after a rock shattered a window,
in a car taking two Negro girls
home from the boycotted West

Racial barriers fell at another
Alabama school when a Negro1
student, Wendell Wilkie Gunn,'
was admitted at Florence State
College at Florence.
Other Negroes enrolled earlier

A six-man jury last night found -
Eastern Michigan University Prof.1
Quin McLoughlin guilty of violat-
ing an Ann Arbor city ordinance J
prohibiting loitering in a public
Prof. McLoughlin was one of 12,
demonstrators arrested on August
27 for sitting-in on a meeting of
City Council. He is the only one
to have asked for a jury trial.
In sentencing the defendant to
$50 or five days in jail, Munici-
pal Court Judge Francis L. O'Brien
said, "He appreciated the sincer-e
ity of Prof. McLoughlin's motivesF
in sitting-in." Judge O'Brien al-n
lowed the defendant 10 days ine
which to lodge an appeal whicha
would be heard in Washtenawa
County Circuit Court.
Plan To Communicate
Vanzetti Hamilton, counsel for 1
Prof. McLoughlin, based his case t
on the right to communicate poli-i
tical ideas through sit-in demon- t
strations. C
Counsel Hamilton told the court i
that "if the section prohibiting
loitering is interpreted as prohibit-t
ing the activities of the defendant,I
then that section is in violaton oft
the United States Constitution."
"Although a state may in somet
cases regulate activities intended1
to communicate political ideas,t
such regulations must be narrowlyF
drawn to proscrbe the activity in
question," Counsel Hamilton said.
Cases Cited1
Many cases were cited by Ham-
ilton in which the right of citizensj
to demonstrate to illustrate a poli-
tical belief was upheld by the
United States Supreme Court.
Assistant City Attorney S. J..
Elden asked the jury not to "con-
fuse the issue at hand, that of
considering whether or not Prof.
McLoughlin was guilty of violat-
ing the section of the city ordi-
nance prohibiting loitering, with
the moral issue of the rightness or
wrongness in segregation."
After a trial consuming most of
the day, the jury was out less than
30 minutes before returning their
verdict of guilty.
The fair-housing ordinance was
the subject of discussion at an in-
formal closed meeting of the City
Council last night as Mayor Cecil
0. Creal and the council members
met with leaders of the civil rights
movement in Ann Arbor.

For Delegates
To Conference
Petitioning for Conference on
the University student delegates
opens today.
Approximately 50 students will
be selected to attend the confer-
ence, a three-day discussion of
University issues to be held Oct.:
25-27. The conference steering
committee seeks a "fairly repre-
sentative" group of student dele-
gates, who should be "interested in
the University but not necessarily
experts," according to Chairman
Diane Lebedeff, '65.
Student petitioners must secure
petitions from the Student Gov-
ernment Council office in the SAB
and sign up for an interview with
the selection committee. Inter-
viewing will begin Sept. 21.
Petitio'ning will remain open un-
til all delegate slots are filled, Miss

Lebedeff added.
Faculty members interested in
the conference should contact
Prof. Eugene Feingold of the poli-
tical science department or Stan-
ley R. Levy, administrative assis-
tant in the literary college.

?View Effect
Of Statement
Ann Arbor legislators yesterday'
doubted that Executive Vice-
President Marvin Niehuss' state-
ment limiting out-of-state student
enrollment at the University will
affect upcoming legislation in that
Sen. Stanley Thayer (R-Ann
Arbor) noted that various mem-
bers of the Legislature have been7
talking about a "declaration of
intent" in the matter for some
time without a great deal ever
coming of it. He added that the1
ultimate decision on limiting out-
of-state enrollment rests with the'
university involved and that the
Legislature has no jurisdiction in
this area.
"If it were given any considera-
tion, it would mainly be at the
undergraduate -level rather than
the graduate student level," he
No Position
Rep. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor) noted that the Legislature
as such has no position on out-
of-state eniollment. He said that
there might easily be an attempt
by one or two legislators to in-
troduce a resolution calling upon
the governing bodies of state un-
iversities to limit out-of-state en-
However, such a resolution "has
no power as a bill and wouldn't
have much backing unless it came
from a legislator with some sen-
iority," he added.
He explained that any attempt
on the part of Rep. Richard Gu-
zowski (D-Detroit) to pass such a
resolution may not be strongly
supported, since Guzowski's meth-
ods in other areas have lost him
some backing.
Different Story
However, if somewone like Rep.
Allison, Green (R-Kingston) or
Sen. Elmer Porter (R-Blissfield)
introduces such a resolution on
behalf of the Legislative Audit
Commission, it may be a different
story, he said.
"If such a resolution is passed,
the implication will be included
that state appropriations may be
less to any university that does
not limit out-of-state enrollment.
On the other hand, if the number
of out-of-state students is cut, the
Legislature should be ready to ap-
propriate that much more money
to compensate for the decrease in
tuitions that would result," Burs-
ley said.
Thayer noted that limiting out-
of-state enrollment would present'
a serious problem to students
whose own states do not offer them

Air Force Extends Contract
On IST Research in Radar
The Air Force has extended for one year the Institute of Science
and Technology's contract for applied research in advanced radar
The new $1.8 million extension moves the project into its third
year on an expanded scale. Last year's contract was for $800,000; 1961's
totalled $900,000. William C. Coon of IST described the work as "basic
"research with a definite concrete
objective: to find out if certain
things are possible."
Radio Waves
The "certain things," according
ree I oles to project director Leonard J. Por-
cello,. include studies of propagat-
ing radio waves through the dif-
ferent atmospheric layers, radar
data processing, display and re-
cording; implementation of radar
transmitter and receiver equip-
ment; antenna element behavior
in high altitudes; navigation and
stabilization of aerospace vehicles,
and analysis of systems concepts.
The larger contract was given
because "IST indicated to the Air
Force that there are additional
things we can do, and they bought
the ideas," Coons noted.

Most of the pickets were women.-
While 80 policemen watched, the
march went off peacefully and, at
the end, the marchers boarded
their chartered buses and went'
back to their neighborhoods.
There were few incidents. A Ne-
gro became involved in an argu-
ment in a cluster of white spec-4
tators across La Salle St. from
city hall. But no blows were struck.
The march on city hall was
sponsored by the Property Owners
Coordinating Committee, an alli-
ance of 47 neighborhood groups.
Howard Scaman, chief spokes-'
man, said most of the marchers
are property owners. He estimated
that at least 5000 of them came'
to city hall in 71 buses.
Negro organizations favored the
ordinance, but they wanted it to
go further and include owners as
well as brokers.
Backed Board
Many of the pickets paraded two
blocks from city hall to the board
of education's headquarters to
back the boardand its neighbor-
hood school policy.
Negro organizations object to
the policy on grounds that it fos-1
ters de facto segregation.
