Regents given

A manual of procedure for the new University judicial
system was presented to the Regents yesterday, indicating
completion of the first step toward implementation of the
The judicial system, approved by the Regents last April,
will provide student and faculty judicial panels which will
initially review alleged violations of rules by members of the
University community.
The system also provides for a three-member panel of
presiding judges, one of whom will be a student.
The manual presented to the Regents outlines the pro-
cedures whereby the panel will hear cases. The 64-page docu-

Search for
new OSS VP
goes slowly
The announcement yester-
day that departing University,
Vice President for Student
Services Robert Knauss will
remain at his post on a tem-
porary basis, comes in light of
reports that the;search com-
mittee charged with finding
his successor may be well over
a month and a half from com-
pleting its work.
.The 10-member committee, con-
sisting of five students, three fac-
ulty members and two staff mem-
bers from the Office of Student
Services (OSS), was formed in late
November and has been meeting,
since last December.
According to committee member
Jerry DeGrieck, '72, the committee
currently has a list of about 85!


Tax vote,
*3 races on
Feb. ballot
The first of many opportunities
for 18 to 21-year-old voters in Ann
Arbor to cast ballots for political
candidates will occur Feb. 21
when City Council primary elec-
tions in two wards and an advisory
vote on a city income tax will take
There will be both Democratic
and Republican primaries in the
Fourth Ward and a Democratic
primary in the Fifth Ward-the
city's two west-side wards. These
are the only wards where more
than one candidate from each party
is seeking election.
* As of the Jan. 3 deadline for fil-
ing petitions for the primary, a
total of 14 candidates are seeking
the council seat from each of the
five wards that is up for election
this year. The other half of coun-
cil's 10 seats were filled in an off-
year election last April.
Other candidates will be added
to the final April ballot when the
Human Rights-Radical Independent
Party selects its nominees at a
party caucus sometime over the
next two months.
HR-RIP recently was assured a
spot on the city ballot, as well
as the state's November ballot,
following certification of its peti-
tions for a ballot position by the
Board of State Canvassers.
The advisory vote on the in-
come tax will be conducted across
all five wards. Mayor Robert Har-
ris has termed the proposed one
per cent city tax as indispensable
for the long-range maintenance of
city services. If the vote is in fa-
vor of the tax, it still must be ap-
proved by Council.
As of now, the races for Coun-
cil seats in the April election are
as follows:
" First Ward - incumbent Jack
Kirscht (D) against Robert Fos-
ter (R);
" Second Ward - Michael Mor-
ris (D) against Thomas Burnham
" Third Ward - Ulrich Stoll
(D) against C. William Colburn
" Fourth Ward - The winner

gents, and was returned for
technical changes in wording
to the University Council, a
body of students, faculty and
administrators assigned by the
Regents two years ago to
foi mulate a new system of1
The completion of the manual
of procedure is only the first step
toward implementation of the sys-
tem, however, as the Regents have
yet to appoint members of both
student and faculty juries. In-
formed sources indicate it will be
two months before the Regents
make appointments.
A third step necessary for im-
plementation is the completion of
the new conduct rules themselves.
The rules, currently under dis-
cussion by UC, are expected to
take several months to complete.
In the probable event that both
the manual procedure and the
panel members are approved be-
fore the new rules, the panel will
begin reviewing cases under the
current judiciary policy, the con-
troversial Regents Interim Rules.
The Interim Rules are a set of
sanctions established by the Re-
gents in the wake of the April,
1970, Black Action Movement class
strike calling for increased minor-
ity admissions.
The rules provide for a single
"hearing officer," appointed by
the president, with the power to
determine innocence or guilt of
student defendants, and to ad-
minister penalties.
While the Interim Rules dealt
only with students, the new judi-
ciary will apply uniformly to the
entire University community -
students, faculty, administrators.
and non-academic employes.
Last spring, UC presented a set
of regulations, which apparently
pleased no one. Students called the
regulations too harsh, while fac-
ulty members found them too

Community denied free

Allan Smith, vice president
for academic affairs, stated yes-
terday that the Program for
Educational and Social Change
(PESC) is acting against Uni-
versity policy by declaring its
courses at the University open
to the community at no charge.
Smith is requesting literary
college Dean Frank Rhodes to
inform PESC members that
non - University students will
continue to be assessed fees for
auditing University courses. In
the literary college those fees
amount to $30 per credit hour

for Michigan residents, $95 for

While dismissing this policy as
"not within the province of the
program personnel nor the in-
dividual professor," Smith de-

meet to help bridge tensions

Formed by 13 University pro-
fessors, who represent the Pilot
Program and Residential Col-
lege as well as LSA, PESC has
defined its function as an "ini-
tial attempt to list courses rele-
vant to educational and social
change," and had planned to
include both students and local
workers in its program.
Most PESC members were re-
served in their comments about
PESC's imminent future, though
almost all expressed surprise at
Smith's announcement.
One member, who wished to
remain anonymous, reported
that community support for the
program started at a moderate
level but has increased rapidly
as PESC has begun to receive
more publicity.
Planning to initiate meetings
with Rhodes later today, the
members of PESC hope to reach
a more favorable agreement
than Smith's directive would

for a possible reconciliation,

Members of PESC have con-
ceded that their program was
destined to be challenged sooner
or later, due to its lack of ad-
ministrative approval.

Representatives from SGC and
the Rackham Student Govern-
ment (RSG) met last night to dis-
cuss the growing antagonism be-
tween the two bodies.
At the heart of last night's dis-
cussion was a letter issued earlier
this week by John Koza, Grad,
member of SGC, opposing the
RSG mail-ballot election sched-
uled for next week.
Three thousand copies of Koza's
letter were mailed to nearly one-
third of the Rackham student
population. The letter urged a
negative vote on three RSG ref-
erenda stating that:

- Graduate student govern-
ments through the Graduate Fed-
