Future of 'U' in Annual Addres

Outlines Main Issues
For Year To Come
Compares Problems Facing
To Those Encountered in Britain
By JEAN TENANDER
University President Harlan Hatcher is quietly optimistic about
the state of the University.
President Hatcher delivered his annual state of the University
address to the University Senate last night, outlining the primary
issues the University will be concerned with in the coming year.
Drawing parallels between the problems he discussed this sum-
mer in England with, the Association of Commonwealth Universities
and those which the University faces, President Hatcher said all of
the serious new problems facing
education today were the product
of "the inescapable and organic
fact of growth."

HRC:
City council
Post pones,
Filling Seat
The Ann Arbor City Council
postponed making an appointment
to the Human Relations Commis-
sion to fill the seat vacated by
Rev. Henry Lewis last night until
the next council session on Oct. 7,
while two proposals concerning the
HRC were made.
First, Mayor Cecil O. Creal pro-
posed that the membership of the
HRC be increased from 10 to 12
and the recommendation was sent
to the Committee on Fair Housing
Legislation for approval.
Without Powers
Second, council passed a motion
made by Fourth Ward Council-
man Wendall Hulcher (R) that
implementation of the HRC's
powers should be held up until
council members could confer
with groups in the civil rights
movement in Ann Arbor.
The council action came in the
wake of a protest about deficien-
cies in the, HRC from the newly-
formed Coordinating Council on
Civil Rights.
The coordinating council, or-
ganized by the local chapter of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People,
praoposed that the HRC be over-
hauled to give it "roughly equal
representation of Negro and white,
Republican and Democrat from
} each -ward."r
Rewrite Ordinance
One approach to this suggestion
would be to rewrite the ordinance
granting the HRC its power, ter-
minate the present commission
and appoint a new representative
commission of about 12 to 15
members, the coordinating coun-'
cil said.
The council also heard a report
compiled by the Citizen's Survey
Committee in conjunction with
the University on the feasibility
of locating a community college
in Washtenaw County.
The report, which was favor-
able to the proposal, noted that
a large percentage of high school
seniors in the Washtenaw County
area who were not planning to go
to college would have been in-
terested in attending such a com-
munity college.

President Hatcher likened the
development of a total plan of
growth for the University to a
cycle: the presentation of a plan
followed by critical evaluation and
the development of a new plan.
Ten years ago each of the
schools and colleges were asked
to project their enrollment expec-
tations for the next decade. Pres-
ident-Hatcher said they had been
asked to do so again. The tenta-
tive projections and statements of
need are now in the administra-
tion's hands but President Hatch-
er emphasized that they are still
only tentative figures.
A great deal of this work was
done during the summer to pre-
pare for questioning by Gov.
George Romney's Citizen's Com-
mittee on Higher Education.
Stress Principle
The president indicated that the
statement of needs from the var-
ious schools and colleges should
stress the same principle that the
University's request to the Legis-
lature does; that the resources
meet the obligations already as-
sumed.
The new residential college,
President Hatcher said, "moves the
discussion of growth to a more
profitable level than the one on
whichit is often pursued. The
question posed by the college is
not ,whether we increase the
amount of training in the liberal
arts but in what organizational
structure." He said he was highly
in favor of the college proposal.
"'Campus Planning' " is an ex-
pression of growth in physical
terms which can accommodate an
expansion of the various educa-

ALGIERS (JP)-President Ahmed
Ben Bella clarged last night that'
Morocco has troops poised ten
yards from the Algerian border
and is backing a Berber uprising
against his government.
The Algerian political bureau
called for crowds of Algerians to
demonstrate for Ben Bella this
evening.
In a dramatic radio address to
the nation Ben Bella said "Moroc-
can soldiers of Moulay Hassan
are ten meters from the Algerian
frontier.
Fear Nothing
"We know what it means. We
fear nothing. We can defend our-
selves."
There was no immediate reac-
tion from Morocco to Ben Bella's
remarks.
While Ben Bella spoke, confus-
ing reports poured into the cap-
ital about loyalist and dissident
troops moving around in Kabylie,
east of Algiers

Some army units were in a state
of mutiny in Kabyie following
their commander, Col. Mohand

openly proclaimed opposition to

the Administration Bldg. "some-
time in October-to demand more
jobs for Negroes in the Adminis-
tration Bldg. and also the SAB.
"Our purpose is also to correct,
through negotiations and picket-
ing, discriminatory practices that
spot other University facilities,"
Thomas said.
Thomas envisions DAC's action
as proceeding in two distinct steps
-a second demonstration to occur
only in the event that DAC's
demands are not met after the
initial picket.
Conventional
"Our first picket will be conven-
tional, but the tactics of our sec-
ond picket will be to close down
the buildings involved; including
both the Administration Bldg. and
the SAB," he said.
He also said that in closing the
buildings "DAC will consider any
attempt to break our line an act
of violence that will be met in
kind. We are a self-defense organ-
ization. We can also guarantee
participation in our line of the
Detroit chapter of Uhuru," he con-
tinued.
Further, he said, "if necessary
we will put several thousand men
from the Washtenaw County area
on the line."
Warning
Thomas issued a warning to all
the "Aunt Beulahs, Uncle Toms
and white liberals to watch us on
television but keep away from the
line. It'll be too rough for them."
DAC further warned people not
in sympathy with the demonstra-
tion to avoid contact with the
p'ickets.
Thomas maintained that mem-
bers of individual groups such as
the Black Muslims would probably
participate in the picketing of the
Administration, Bldg., but that the
organizations would probably not
participate as such.?
No Comment
University officials declined to
comment on the proposed DAC
pickets.
A street rally has been tenta
tively set by DAC for Saturday,
Oct. 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Beakes
St. and Fourth, according to "The
Brotherhood Eye," DAC's official
publication.
DAC has been involved in the
past in two demonstration regard-
ing alleged cases of discrimina-
tion in Ann Arbor.
Picket City Hall
On Sept. 14 and Sept. 21, DAC
picketed Ann Arbor City Hall re-
garding an incident of alleged
police brutality involving the
shooting of a local Negro youth,
Leroy Juide, this summer.
According to Thomas, the group,
which is not a recognized student
organization, contains roughly six
to ten University students. The
group includes at least 150 Negroes
from the Ann Arbor vicinity, he
said.
Rufus Griffin, a representative
of Uhuru, said Saturday that "we
support DAC and its movement.
We support the picket that it
called 100 per cent."

PORTLAND STATE COLLEGE:
Six Sororities Suspended

By MARGARET LOWE
Six national sorority chapters
were recently suspended at Port-
land State College because they
refused to pledge the only two
Negro girls who sought member-
ship.
Five of the six sororities have
chapters at the University. They
are Alpha Chi Omega, Alpha Omi-
cron Pi, Alpha Phi, Delta Delta
Delta and Pi Beta Phi. The sixth
sorority is Delta Zeta.

These soroiities were put on
an inactive basis by Branford P.,
Millar, president of the college.
This action was taken because
"there is enough doubt that no
discrimination was involved," Mil-
lar said.j
Only One Reason
Miller noted that the only rea-
son the sororities have for reject-
ing the Negroes is the wish of the
girls in the houses not to live
with them.

Committee AimisTo Set Up
Autonomous USNSA Store
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
An ad-hoc committee is planning to change the United States
National Student Association cooperative bookstore into a locally-
run and financially autonomous cooperative bookstore, according to
Howard Schechter, '66, spokesman for the committee.
If the plans go through, the bookstore will keep its name and
maintain the USNSA in an advisory capacity, but its administration
"and finances will be handled lo-
cally, Schechter explained.

PROF. RICHARD JENNINGS
... dies
Attack Fells
.Professor
Prof. Richard Hall Jennings of
the architecture school, national-
ly known designer of architectural
foundations, died suddenly of a
heart attack, Saturday night.
Prof. Jennings, who taught at
the University since 1958, was well
known for his work in fountain
designs and his integration of
sculpture and architecture.
Prof. Robert L. Iglehart, chair-
man of the art department, said
yesterday, "Prof. Jennings' great
gifts, his fresh and ingenious ap-
proach to problems and his infec-
tious enthusiasm made him an
artist of wide reputation and an
inspiring teacher and friend."

Selection

The bookstore is currently one
of a chain of four USNSA book-
stores on Big Ten campuses. Its
sdministrat on and finances have
been handled through the Chicago
office of USNSA. It is incorporated
separately under a Wisconsin co-
operative corporation law.
'Sounder Basis'
The ad-hoc !committee, which
includes Bookstore Manager Car-
ol Wigle, Inter-Cooperative Coun-
cil Executive Secretary Luther
Buchele and Graduate Student
Council Vice-President Michael
Rosen, Grad, hopes to put the
bookstore "on a sounder financial
basis through more expedient serv-
ice," Schechter said.
He explained that the current
store setup under USNSA forces
the store to pay for the adminis-
trative bureaucracy of the Chicago
office and the financial insecuri-
ties of the other stores.
Under the store's current status,
the quarterly division of profits
among customers will be kept at a
minimum 10 per cent rebate "be-
cause this store must compensate
for the failures of USNSA cooper-
atives elsewhere," Schechter said.
Major Fault
Schechter also emphasized that
the store's other major fault has
been "its insufficient book inven-
tory which forces customers to or-
der books and wait several weeks to
receive them."
By putting the store on a sound-
er financial basis, the ad-hoc com-
mittee would be able to stock the
store with over $65,000 inventory
of books by the next semester
book rush, Schechter said. This
would be almost 10 times the num-
ber of books the store had in stock
at the beginning of this semester.
The committee is meeting this
week to work out its exact status
with USNSA and to receive new
and expanded financial credit.

Committee

The sororities feel they should
have the freedom to choose whom
they wish to associate with and
that "to yield to faculty pressure
eliminates all freedom of choice."
The two girls were "eminently
qualified" and "the kind of pledges
all sororities are looking for," Mil-
lar said. There were only two
other girls cut during the early
stages of rush out of 115 who
sought membership.
Similar Cases
"There were many other cases
in the past when sorority mem-
bership was questioned by the
faculty," Millar commented. "This
is definitely not a test case as
far as the administration is con-
cerned, but is 'the straw that
finally broke the camel's back.'"
"No longer can sorority mem-
bership practices escape serious
doubt," he added.
When national sororities were
first allowed on the Oregon State
campus in 1960, the faculty decid-
ed that "serious doubt" would be
the criterion for judging member-
ship issues.
Burden of Proof
"The burden of proof is on the
sororities," Millar said. "They must
show that they do not practice
membership discrimination."
In a joint statement the sorori-
ties said the college's request for
such evidence amounted to an
ultimatum to admit the Negro
girls.
Millar said he, will appoint a
faculty board to review the case
and to establish future status of
the sororities at the college.
AHC "Acts
To Change
Plan of Body
Most members of Assembly
House Council voted themselves
out of office yesterday, as they
approved a plan to change the
body into a president's council.
The plan accepted stipulates,
however, that any president who
is unable to attend a, meeting can
send a substitute, who must be
an elected member of the house
council.
The proposal will be incorpor-
ated into the revised constitution
and by-laws which will be pre-
sented at next week's AHC meet-
ing. If the new constitution is
accepted, it must be approved by
Student Government Council, and
is subject within the next two
weeks after that time to Office of
Student Affairs vote.
New Powers
Assembly Vice-President Max-
ine Loomis, '65N, has been work-
ing with a committee to incor-
porate in the new constitution
powers included in the Statement
of Authority drafted by Assembly
last year. The statement included
many of the functions assumed by
the organization over the years,
but not necessarily present in the
formal constitution.
In other action, it was an-
nounced at the meeting that Leon-
ard Schott, business manager of
the residence halls, has indicated
dorms may hold as many open-
open houses as the residents wish,
providing no food to be provided
by the residence halls is neces-
sary.
No Formal Ruling
Schott could find no formal rul-
ing to support the impression held
currently by many house officers
that the number of open-opens
were restricted to two per semes-
ter. He said, however, that this
could have been a policy inform-
ally established by former Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon and not

IFC 'Not Affected'
By Jurisdiction Loss;
Plans To Move Ahead
By MARILYN KORAL
Members of the Panhellenic As-
sociation will not sit on the pro-
posed. IFC-Panhel membership
selection advisory committee ap-
proved by Student Government
Council last week because the com-
mittee will have neither power
nor effectiveness, and thus will
not meet with the approval of
some of the sorority nationals,
Panhel President Patricia Elkins,
'64, said last night.
Miss Elkins will ask for the de-
letion of the Panhellenic name.
from the committee at tomorrow's
meeting. Interfraternity Council
President Clifford Taylor, '64 in-
tends to go ahead with filling the
committee.11
"In my opinion this indicates a
lack of responsibility on the part
of the Panhellenic Association.
IFC feels we have responsibility
in this area. We have not change
ed our conception that this Is
basically a Greek problem.
Not Liiftedy
"Our effectiveness will not be
severely limited by not having
original jurisdiction. On the con-
trary, this will even serve as an
incentive to fraternities to handle
the problem expediently," Taylor
said last night.
The advisory committee ap-
proved by SGC will work under the
Council Membership Selection
Practices committee and will not
have original jurisdiction. "We will
only have the power to talk and
recommend. This has been done in
the past, and we'll continue to do,
it. The committee will not im-
prove our effectiveness," Miss El-
kins commented.
In addition, she pointed out that
"the nationals would probably not
be terribly pleased to have even
more people see their documents."
Don't Believe
Since the five sororities who
refused to submit membership
statesents to SOC have already
indicated they don't believe stu-
dents have the right to enforce
the Regents bylaw against discrim-
ination, having more students see
their constitutions-even if they
are Greeks - without granting
them power, would only compound
sorority objection, Miss Elkins
said.
She noted, however, that this
was the consensus of the sorority
presidents. "Most will not be in
full contact with their nationals
after our Thursday meeting."
However, if the IFC-Panhel
committee had been granted orig-
inal jurisdiction in enforcement of
the bylaw, Miss Elkins is quite
sure it would have met with ap-
proval from many sorority nation-
als. "Then we would have started
to work," she commented.

HIiLLEL PANEL:
Freedman Discusses WorldPopulation Contrasts

By DUANE MACKIE
The world population problem
is one marked by contrasts, Prof.
Ronald Freedman of the sociology
department said last night in a
panel discussion at Hillel.
On one hand are parents in the
United States who have large fam-
ilies, although they are able to
control their size, Prof. Freedman
said. On the other hand are the
parents throughout much of the
rest of the world who desire small-1
e,. fammiie- btf n not have t

its present rate, it will be four
and one-half billion by the year
2250.
"It is the well-educated, middle
class Americans who are having a
lot of kids," Freedman said. It is
not because they are unable to
prevent conception, he noted, but
because they want to have large
families.
Attribution
The baby boom can be attribut-
ed to the fact that there has been

having children they don't want
to have," Freedman noted. This
group is accounting for a dispro-
portionate percentage of the birth
increase, he said.
The world problem can be ex-
plained with "extreme examples,"
Freedman said. For example, if
the population rise had been what
it is at present since the time of
Ceasar, the world would be in-
habited by some 135 quadrillion
people, or 30,000 times the world's
