Proposed alterations to the Michigan Union were dis-
cussed, then tabled, by the Regents at their December meet-
The Regents also authorized bids for the Gerald Ford
Presidential Library which is planned to be constructed on
North Campus. The Regents, however, did not select an ar-
chitect for a new alumni building planned for the area behind
the Lydia Mendelssohn Theater.
TWO OF THE MAIN proposals for the Union discussed by
the Regents were transferring control of the building from
the Michigan Union Corporation to the Office for Student ser-
vices, headed by Vice-President Henry Johnson, and
changing the hotel's rooms into dormitory rooms.
After discussion, the Regents voted 5-2 to table the entire
matter until the January meeting when they will receive a
market research report presented by Johnson. Regents
Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor) and Thomas Roach (D-Grosse
Pointe) voted against the proposal.
The proposed changes in the hotel structure, including
converting some or all of its rooms into dorm space, were one
of the major reasons for the postponed discussions. Despite
strong urging by University President Robben Fleming to
convert the rooms into dorm space, several regents did not
fully agree with the plans.
DEAN BAKER (R-Ann Arbor) said he saw "no clear
solution" to the matter. He said the Union is a sound structre
that has many uses, but added, "It seems to me that nobody
is really convinced of the use of that building... . I'm not per-
suaded we've really found the proper use of that building."
Fleming, however, urged the implementation of the plans
for what he said was the students' benefit. "If we are going to
finance the Union via student fees, then we really have to say
that it's for the general benefit of the students. . . . It would
seem better wisdom to go the dorm route," he told the Regen-
Johnson said his office will conduct a survey to find out
how students want the Union run. He added that the survey
would be only a cursory effort.
"WE HAD ASSUMED that the proposals would be accep-
ted, and we had prepared plans for an in-depth survey of the
students desires," Johnson explained. "However, due to the
tabling of the matter, we have been asked to present this
report at the next meeting (mid-January). Since the students
have just begun to arrive back, the survey can only give
general indications of the feelings expressed by the studen-
He said that when the propsals are finalized, his office will
make- the thorough, in-depth report the Regents have
The Regents also passed a farewell resolution to Fleming,
praising the president's "tough-minded commitment to ex-
cellence that preserved and expanded the University's stan-
ding as one of the pre-eminent educational institutions of this
country and of the world."
DURING THEIR TWO-DAY meeting, the Regents also:
" awarded construction contracts totaling $3.5 million to
low bidders for the proposed Gerald Ford Presidential
Library on North Campus. The library, scheduled for com-
pletion in 1980, will be built next to the Bentley Historical
Library and will contain over 14 million pages of the former
" rejected the recommendation of Vice-President for
Financial Affairs James Brinkerhoff to hire Hugh Jacobson
Associates, based in Washington, D.C., to draw plans for the
proposed $1.5 million Alumni Center;
" heard a report from Marilyn Mason, chairwoman of the
search'gommittee for the new Music School dean. Mason said
her committee had a list of about 40 candidates which would
soon be pared down to 15 persons who would be invited to the
school for interviews.
" approved a $250,000 loan for improvements to the
Board OKs $300 million hospital plan

Preliminary designs show that the
new facility would be a twin tower
structure, capped by a taller central
tower, according to Douglas Sarbach,
director of planning, research and

The Regents also renewed the
University's contract with PIRGIM, at
the same time lowering the amount of
student support needed per semester by
the organization from 331/3 per cent to 25
PIRGIM must maintain a certain
level of student support in order to use
the University's billing service to
collect a $2 voluntary fee from students
at the CRISPregistration lines.
PIRGIM HAD asked the Regents for
the support level reduction, claiming
that the differences between the
registration procedures currently used
and those in use in 1972 when the
original contract was initiated hinder

The new drinking age went into effect
at midnight Friday, Dec. 22, four hours
after Federal District Judge Ralph Guy
ruled the voter-approved law was con-
In his 52-page decision, Guy con-
cluded "the consumption of alcoholic
beverages is not a fundamental right,"
and therefore can be taken away by
voter approval. Guy said, in his opinion,
"It must be emphasized in this regard
that this court does not have before it
the wisdom of the action taken by the
electorate, but only its con-

one attorney for the state said, "I'm
pleased the will of the people has been
upheld." At the same time, attorneys
for the plaintiffs promised an im-
Guy's decision came only four hours
before the law was to go into effect. The
judge apologized for the tardiness by
urging the state not to strictly observe
the midnight deadline for the hundreds
of Michigan youths already in bars.
Locally, Dooley's manager Jim Mills
declared his bar was "going to sell to
people until two o'clock the night of the
22nd, since a deadline had not been
specified." Around the corner at
Second Chance, however, underaged
patrons were refused drinks at mid-
night. Those over 20 were distinguished
by hand stamps, which had been ad-
ministered at the door all evening.
THE PRACTICE of branding the
hands of those patrons over 21 when
I.D.s are checked at the door has
become popular with local bars. Both
Dooley's and Second Chance are
allowing 18-year-olds into the bars, but
stamping the hands of those legally
permitted to drink. Bouncers have been
assigned to patrol the tables to insure
that 21-year-olds do not bring drinks
back from the bar to share with un-
At The Village Bell, however, the
policy will be quite different. "No one
under 21 will be allowed in after 8 or 9,
unless they're going to be eating or sit-
ting upstairs," said manager Ron
Wengren. "Once the kitchen closes af-
ter ten, no one under 21 will be allowed
in at all, I expect."
* LAKEPORT (UPI)-An armored
car was robbed of more than $1.5
million last night while two of its three
guards sipped coffee at a restaurant,
state police said.
Authorities were seeking the third
guard, who had stayed with the
Purolator Security Co. truck.
Police'said they also were seeking a
late-model car that was parked outside
the restaurant' all day but vanished af-
ter the robbery was discovered.
Troopers said the armored car had
stopped at a restaurant in Lakeport,
north of Port Huron, and two of the
guards stepped in for coffee.
"The only thing we know is that two
of the guards went into the restuarant
to have coffee and when they came
back out the third one was gone, and so
was the money," State Police Dispat'
cher Roger Tripp said.
Missing from the armored car were
three bags of money believed to contain
$1,516,900, Tripp said.
