Regents Gonfirm Approval of Rules'


Notes Pro cedures
For 'U' Planning
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns explained'
to the Regents yesterday the long-range enrollment planning process
in which his office is currently involved.
The first, most tentative set of figures has shown that the Uni-
versity may contain more than 36,600 students by 1968 and "be-
tween 45,000-50,000 students by 1975."
The Office of Academic Affairs has asked the deans of the
17 schools and colleges to prepare enrollment predictions based on
tsocial needs, admission pressures

Delta Hopes
Look Bleak.
For the present, the prospects
of a University branch four-year
institution at Delta College look
But for the future, the door is
always open as far as the Univer-
sity is concerned.
This was the opinion expressed
by University President Harlan
Hatcher yesterday as he reviewed'
briefly the past and present situ-
ation at Delta College.
Recently, the State Board of
Education temporarily ended the
long controversy over how to bring
a four-year post-high school pro-
gram to the Midland-Saginaw-
Bay County area. The board ap-
proved a proposal which estab-
lishes a two-year private senior
college near the already existent
two-year junior college there.
The University worked out a°
;.proposal to establish a four-year
institution separate from the jun-
ior college there last year. The
proposal was not supported by
either the Legislature or coordi-
nating groups on higher education
and was sent to the "blue ribbon"
Citizens' Committee for Higher
"As far as we're concerned, it is
still with that body, President
Hatcher said.
Regent Allen R. Sorenson of
Midland noted that despite the
State Board's acceptance of the
two-year senior institution, "there
is still a good deal of interest" in
the establishment of a University,
four-year branch there."

"The planning process is an
accumulation of probability state-
ments-each with its own uncer-
tainties. The process produces
anxieties on the part of all con-
cerned," Heyns said.
Along with other administrators,
he has emphasized over the past,
few days that the first set of
figures needs much refinement
before it will have concrete mean-
Heyns said that in going over
the figures the deans have already
reached several general conclu-
-All the schools and colleges
except one report substantial en-
rollment pressures now and see no
abatement. The exception is the
pharmacy college.
-All are willing to grow, though
not without reservations. "How-
ever, it's difficult to think of
growth when you can't even meet
current needs," Heyns said.
-The professions-law, medi-
cine, social work, and the like -
are in a "period of revolution."
Changing methods and techniques
are invalidating old conceptions,
Heyns said. "These schools are
studying the very nature of their
training process
-The various schools and col-
leges are becoming increasingly
interdependent on each other. The
professional schools, for instance,
are becoming "more and more de-
pendent on the disciplines of the
general college graduate pro-
grams "
-The 'adequacy of off-campus'
facilities is an important part of
enrollment projections. "It may
or may not limit growth."
-T he 60:40 undergraduate-
graduate ratio will be maintained.
Through the years it has proven
to be the most "sensible" propor-
tion in relation to faculty needs.

Goehel Cites Concern
Over 'Harassment'
In a rare public display of
controversy, the Regents nearly
upset Student Government Coun-
cil's "Regulations on Membership
in Student Organizations" yester-
After much debate, however,
they confirmed Vice-President for
Student Affairs James A. Lewis'
approval of SGC's action by a 5-3
The source of thie unexpected
controversy was a letter from
Laurence D. Smith, a lawyer rep-
resenting ten campus sororities,
asking the Regents to stay the
membership regulations, which
went into effect Oct. 23 immed-
iately after Lewis' approval.
Prohibit Discrimination
These regulations, as passed by
Council, prohibit discriminatory
membership selection by student
organizations and establish pro-
cedures for dealing with alleged
cases of discrimination. The reg-
ulations are in keeping with Re-
gents bylaw 2.14.
Regental action last spring spe-
cifically delegated SGC the au-
thority to judge possible violations
of the bylaw by student groups.
Smith represents the national'
organizations of several sororities'
en campus who feel that the Uni-
versity has no authority to deter-
mine membership criteria of "pri-
vate groups." SGC, supported by
the Regents, has contended that
the groups are not private because
they are sanctioned by the Uni-
versity as official student organi-

Hawaii T rip
Vice - President for Research
Ralph A. Sawyer reported to the
Regents yesterday on his recent
trip to Hawaii and Alaska.
On the island of Maui in Ha-
waii, Sawyer inspected the site
for Project AMOS, a three-tele-
scope observatory project of im-
portant military significance" at
the top of a 10,000-foot extinct
The University undertook the
administration of this project last
summer under a $4.3 million grant
for three years. Half a million
dollars was added to this for tele-
scope construction and $650,000
more for the observatory.
Sawyer reported that the con-
struction plans will be ready for
contractors' bids by Dec. 16 and
that construction will begin soon
after Jan. 1.
The purpose of the project will
be to track missiles and satellites
in mid-course up to a distance
of 1000 miles by passage of infra-
red radiation.
The goals of the three-telescope
observatory will be threefold, Saw-
yer noted: tracking, observing and
It will be built with the coopera-
tion of the University of Hawaii,
which is indefinitely leasing out
the land for the site at $1 per
The University was chosen to
administer construction of the
project because of the recognized
position of its leadership, eminent
in infra-red technology, he said.

Regent Allan R. Sorenson of'
Midland said yesterday that the
Regents are opposed to a tuition
hike "as a general principle."
"I am only speaking for myself,"
Sorenson qualified, "and we really
can't say with any certainty now
what will happen."
Earlier this week, Sen. Frank'
D. Beadle (R-St. Clair), chairman
of the Senate Appropriations
Committee, had predicted that his
committee would probably recom-
mend a tuition hike for the Uni-
versity and the nine other state-
supported schools. The Legislature
is responsible for providing the
University's general operations
Willing Provider
Beadle said the University
should be willing to provide some
of the funds it wants within its
own system and added that a tui-
tion hike would be "asking the

damentally and morally wrong."

Sorenson said he was person-
ally opposed'to a further rise and
considers it only a "last ditch
measure" in case the state's ap-
propriation isn't high enough.
Not Cause and Effect
He added, however, that he did
not think the appropriation fig-
ures being mentioned-which ad-
ministrators have declared in-
adequate-would cause tuition to
be raised.
Announce Plan
To Visit Orient
Regent Donald M. D. Thurber
of Detroit and Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Roger W. Heyns
will take a 24-day "working trip"
to the Orient in December, it was
announced yesterday.
The two will visit Japan, For-
mosa, the Philippines, Thailand
and India to "review various Uni-
versity projects and meet Univer-
sity alumni," Thurber said.
The two will also make stops
in Cairo, Rome and Amsterdam.

1 Maehrowicz
Denies Suit
United States District Judge
Thaddeus M. Machrowicz dismiss-
ed a Detroit Negro leader's suit to
prevent Mississippi Gov. Ross
Barnett from speaking here Moxi-
Jackie Vaughn III, former can-
didate for Detroit City Council,
filed the suit for an injunction,
contending that permitting Bar-
nett ,to speak at the University
amounted to official University
sanction of Barnett's segregation-
ist policies.
Vaughn further declared that
the speech would deny him civil
rights guaranteed by the 14th
Amendment tothe United States
Constitution; that Barnett's seg-
regationist viewpoint represented
a "clear and present danger" to
himself and other Negroes; and
that the governor's appearance
could "result in violent demon-
strations and protests before, dur-
ing and after the speech."
Inalienable Right
Machrowicz maintained that in
spite of what Barnett had done
in the past, he had the right of
free speech.
The judge added that he could
see no "clear and present danger"
that would justify government in-
tervention; that the charge of

Skyrocketing Appropriation
The recommended increases
would skyrocket state operat-
ing appropriations to the 10
schools from their current $110
million level to $135 million - a
phenomenal 23 per cent increase
in a demi-decade that has seen
appropriations raised roughly five
per cent each year.
Capital outlay funds would be
doubled in moving from the cur-
rent $22 million allotment to a
$49 million level next year.
In passing these increase rec-

mously-accepted report that goes

Only Needs
But Alvin Bentley, the chairman
of the subcommittee which author-

supported services.
