LAWYER'S OBJECTIONS:
Brown Defends Proposal
On Membersh R es
By LOUISE LIND
Student Government Council President Thomas A. Brown, '66L,
yesterday offered comments on objections raised to council's pro-
posed rules on membership selection practices among student organi-
zations.
He referred specifically to the remarks made by Lawrence
Smith, '37L, of the Grand Rapids law firm of Schmidt, Smith, How-
lett and Halliday.
Smith had charged at a meeting Monday night that the proposed
0 rules were "penal in nature" and did not provide for due process of

tion. The group was arrested for
loitering when they sat-in in the
city council chambers protesting
the passage of the fair housing
ordinance.
Vice-President for Student Af-
fairs James A. Lewis said that the
University wouldn't be involved in
disciplining those students who
took part in the sit-in if there was
no infraction of University regula-
tions involved. He did mention,
however, that if any infraction of
University regulations were involv-
ed, the University would certainly
review the case.
City Wide Committee
Fourth Ward Councilman Wen-
dell E. Hulcher (R) , head of the
council's fair housing committee,
said that his group will recom-
mend ,to Mayor Cecil O. Creal ap-
pointees for the "city wide citi-
zens committee on fair housing"
whose formation was proposed at
the council meeting Monday night.
The Human Relations Commis-
sion approved the "citizens' com-
mittee" plan at their meeting
last night, and discussed what the
qualifications should be for the
members of such a committee.
"Now is the time to forget about
any ordinance and try to elimi-
nate discrimination in Ann Arbor,"
said Paul Wagner, HRC chairman.
"Ann Arbor seems to have gone
backwards in human relations be-
cause of the dissention over the
fair housing ordinance," he com-
mented. Wagner said that the
HRC would attempt to change the
attitudes of those who are indif-
ferent about civil rights.
Incomplete Coverage
Commenting further on the or-
dinance, Wagner stated, "Even
though we don't have complete
coverage, there is enough coverage
to provide enough housing for the
time being."
In saying he thought he could
get the support of the church
people for the HRC, Wagner de-
nied that where there isn't cover-
age under the ordinance, people
will automatically discriminate.
When asked about the possibility
of getting a full-time human re-
lations commissioner for Ann Ar-
bor, as suggested in the city ooun-
cil, Wagner said that the HRC
had "started the wheels going on
that," and that the HRC has be-
gun to collect information on
people in this field and the quali-
fication standards necessary for
a person to be appointed to this
post.

IFC Asks
Discpline
A'uthority
By LAURENCIE KIRSHBAUM
The judicial branch of Inter-
fraternity Council, called the IFC
Executive Committee, last night
unanimously voted its request to
assume jurisdiction over com-
plaints of fraternity group con-
duct violations.
These complaints, offered in the
past against such misdemeanors as
drinking or causing property dam-
age, had previously been referred
to Joint Judiciary Council. IFC
will discuss its request for this
judicial authority from Joint Ju-
diciary Council, in a meeting
Thursday according to IFC Presi-
dent Clifford Taylor, '64.
Joint Judic Advisor, John Bing-
ley, director of student activities
and organizations, has indicated
his support for the IFC request,
Taylor said.
Group Conduct
Under the IFC plan adopted last
night, the IFC Executive Commit-
tee would deliberate on all fra-
ternity group conduct complaints
upon referral from the Office of
Student Affairs.
This committee, consisting of
IFC senior officers, district fra-
ternity representatives,; alumni
representatives and an OSA mem-
ber, would not hear complaints
against individual fraternity mem-
bers, Taylor noted. These individ-
ual cases would still be under the
authority of Joint Judic.
OSA Advisor to Fraternities~
John Feldkamp, although a mem-
ber of the committee, would not
have a vote.
The presentation of complaints
and testimony before the Execu-
tive Committee would be made in
open hearings, Taylor explained.
This would also permit Michigan
Daily coverage of the hearings.
However, the hearings would close
when the committee went into
deliberation and issued penalties.
Handles Jurisdiction
Taylor said that IFC had been
asked in past years to take over
the jurisdiction of fraternity
group complaints. The council had
refused, he noted.
Fraternity house judiciary bod-
ies would be unable to handle
these complaints, since they in-
volve the whole house, Taylor said.
Joint Judiciary Council may re-
linquish authority over these cases
by having its referral committee
give them to the IFC executive
committee.

UN Elects
Rodri guez
President
UNITED NATIONS (P)-Against
a backdrop of the first private
meeting betwei^n top United States
and Soviet representatives- the
United Nations General Assembly
opened its 18th session yesterday
in an atmosphere of hope and
harmony.
The assembly elected as presi-
dent Carlos Sosa-Rodriguez, a
lawyer-diplomat from Venezuela
who immediately proclaimed the
assembly as one of hope for man-
kind.
Late in the day the assembly
received a jolt when anti-Castro
demonstrators touched off a brief
uproar.
Anti-Castro Demonstrators
Eleven youthful gray-shirted,
shouting demonstrators startled
the diplomats by bursting into the
hall, running down the aisles and
distributing anti-Castro pamph-
lets.
They eluded the guards by
breaking away from one of the
United Nations guided tours and
streaming through a side dpor.
Some of the demonstrators got
to the front of the speakers plat-
form before United Nations guards
seized them and hustled all 11 out.
The pamphlets identified the
demonstrators as members of the
Cuba Nationalist Association. All
were released after questioning by
United Nations security people.
The assembly was in the rou-
tine business of electing chairmen
of committees when the demon-
strators burst inside. It continued
after they were removed.
B e f o r e the session opened
United States Ambassador Adlai
E. Stevenson and his chief aides
paid a 75-minute call on Soviet
Foreign Minister Andrei Gromy-
ko at the Soviet United Nations
mission in Manhattan.
United States sources said issues
pending before tpe assembly were
discussed. Stevenson expressed
hopeafterward that coldwar mat-
ters would be set aside during the
assembly. .He felt Gromyko shared
the hope.
The Stevenson-Gromyko meet-.
ing was a curtain raiser for talks
between Gromyko, United States
Secretary of State Dean Rusk and
British Foreign Secretary Lord
Home possibly late next week.
These will cover further disarma-
ment measures, Germany and
problems in Asia.
Note of Hope
Rusk will arrive in New York
Saturday and Lord Home next
Wednesday.
Thesnote of hope was sounded
by Sosa-Rodriguez in his ,naug-
ural addres.
"Fortunately," he told the dele-
gates, "this session opens in an
auspicious atmposphere." He de-
clared that international tension
had been reduced by the signing
of the limited nuclear test ban
treaty in Moscow and added:
"In all parts of the world, men's
fears are replaced by hope."
He received 99 votes in the sec-
ret ballot. The other 11 votes were
abstentions, cast apparently by
the Soviet bloc nations and Cuba.
There was only one jarring note
in the Assembly opening. Indones-
ian Ambassador Lambertus N. Pa-
lar expressed reservation to the
seating of the delegation repre-
sent the new nation of Malaysia.
The Federation of Malaya, al-
ready a UN member, changed its
name to Malaysia with the birth of
the new country. But in the after-
math Malaysia severed relations
with Indonesia and the Philippines.

Student

Government Council
tonight two motions
procedures for the
of . iscrimination in

student group membership selec-
tions.
The motions were originally
contained in a pair of working
papers discussed at the last coun-
cil meeting and at an open meet-
ing on Monday.
The first motion, drafted by
Vice-President for Student Affairs
James A. Lewis from the Harris
Report, establishes a membership
committee to investigate alleged
'Ediscrimination and a membership
judge to affix penalties against
violators,
The second motion, a 34-point
elaboration of Lewis' motion, out-
6 lines procedures for filing mem-
bership statements by student'
groups. It also sets up guidelines
for investigations of alleged dis-
criminatory practices by the mem-
bership committee and ways for
the judge to establish guilt.
Despite objections raised at the
Monday open hearing, these mo-
tions will be introduced substan-
tively the way they were as work-
ing papets, SGC President Thomas
Brown, '66L, explained.
However, he noted that there
would be "several stylistic
changes."
Also on the agenda are two mo-
tions by Gary Gilbar, '65A&D,
which call for students to take a
more active role in politics.
The first directs Council to in-
vite and finance the state legis-
lators on a campus tour.
Noting that "most legislators
never get an opportunity to visit
the University," the motion invites
them for a tour to show what has
been done here with state funds.
The second moves the establish-
ment of a student committee to
disseminate information on politi-
cal candidates and to be prepared
to testify before congressional edu-
cation committees.

law. He had suggested that coun-
cil abandon the proposed regula-
tions and refer the entire issue
back to the Regents.
Unfamiliar with Situation
'In answer, Brown said yesterday
that "although this gentleman has
a lot of documents, I don't think
he's familiar with what has hap-
pened, in the last few months."
"A lot of the questions Smith
raised are old ones and have al-
ready been settled. However, some
of the points he brought to- the
council's attention are of interest,
such as the necessity of filing a
formal complaint against those
groups suspected of discriminatory
practices.
"I may ask that such points be
reviewed by Prof. (Robert) Harris
(of the Law School)b," he said.
Incorrect Charges
Commenting on Smith's charges
that the regulations proposed- by
SGC are "penal in nature," Brown
said, "I think these charges are
incorrect, since we're not setting
up a judiciad system; we're mere-
ly trying to establish a fair and
equitable system."
Brown indicated that much of-
the issues in dispute may hinge on
the attitude council assumes to-
wards the hearing of alleged dis-
crimination cases. He noted that
council may decide to see these
hearings as serving an education-
al, rather than a strictly judicial
function.
He predicted that council would
be considering the educational
function more seriously than it
has been in the last few weeks.
The Office of Student Affairs
recently underscored this function
in a series of recommended
changes in the proposed legisla-
tion.
Stylistic Changes
Turning to the OSA suggestions,
Brown noted that a lot of the
recommendations ask for stylistic
changes which "I'_1 introduce as
I introduce the motion."
The OSA suggestions, which
were introduced at Monday's open
hearing, called for the replacement
of a membership judge to hear
cases of alleged discriminatory
practices by a membership tribu-
nal consisting of student, faculty
and administration members.
They also asked that a section
seeking to interpret the use of the
blackball system be stricken from
the regulations, since such a sys-
tem, if used in a discriminatory
manner, is automatically prohib-
ited by the proposed rules.

Additional Defense Funds
WASHINGTON tom)-Defense funds totaling $47.3 billion for the
current fiscal year were voted yesterday by the Senate Appropriations'
Committee, which added $298 million to the total the House had
agreed on.
This is the biggest item in the national budget but is $1.6 billion
below President John F. Kerlnedy's estimates and $978 million under

told newsmen after the Democratic
leaders' weekly White House meet-

nedy, there will be votes this week
on reservations and understand-
ings some senators want to tie on-
to theresolution of ratification.
Both Democratic and Republi-
can leaders in the Senate aim to
kill any such changes.
Ervin told reporters that while
he will vote for the treaty he will
support an amendment Russell
plans to offer to require that if
Russia or any other country sub-
mits an amendment to the treaty
it must be subject to Senate ratifi-
cation.

Specifically, the requested study
would consider:
1) The types and amount of re-
search that could be attracted to
the Detroit area;
2) What unique advantages it
has to offer to research firms, such
as academic facilities, labor sup-
ply, nearby industries, natural re-
sources and transportation;
3) Impact on local employment
of new research;
4) How to finance the research
developments, and
5) What new industries might
locate near them.
Study of Detroit
Albert K. Jacoby, head of the
mayor's Committee for Industrial*
and Commercial Development
which initiated the request, noted
that "our interest is the city of
Detroit; we're only asking that
they study Detroit." But he as-
serted that the study would have
impact on the whole area and that
the availability of the University's
educational facilities, libraries and
specialized equipment would be an
important factor.
"If a research corridor develop-
ed over the years," Jacoby envi-
sioned the Ford Freeway from Mt.
Clemens to Ann Arbor "dotted
with laboratories."
He said the freeway locations
are being emphasized because
"there is interest in the identity"

"Our disposition to fight evil is
