By ALAN LENHOFF
The future of the controver-
sial Program for Educational
and Social Change (PESC)
may be determined tomorrow
at a meeting between PESC
representatives and University
officials.
PESC, a group composed of pro-
fessors, students and members of
the Ann Arbor community, has
declared its intention to open Uni-
versity courses to the community
free of charge.
The p r o g r a m, however, was
placed in jeopardy last week when
Allan Smith, vice president for aca-
demic affairs, issued a statement
t, saying that PESC's open-auditing
policy is in violation of UniversityI
rules.
Tomorrow's meeting will be at-
tended by Vice President Smith,
'literary college Dean Frank Rhodes
and representatives 'of PESC.
In addition to discussion of the
proposed tuition-free auditing of
the approximately 50 c o u r s e s
taught by PESC instructors, the
Bch meeting is expected to concern it-
.SA self with PESO's plans to allow
SA "community people" to teach sev-
eral courses.
Rainbow People's Party leader
John Sinclair will direct a course
entitled "Community Control"of
Prisons," and Charles Thomas and
Hank Bryant of the Black Eco-
nomic Development League will_
instruct students in the political
and social makeup of Washtenaw
j County.
According to PESC's plans, stu-1
dents desiring academic credit for
these courses may elect them as

Months of fighting between SGC and the student print
co-op board for control of a $1500 appropriation ended last
night when Central Student Judiciary (CSJ) ruled that the
funds should be returned to SGC.
The appropriation was originally made in October by
SGC for the purpose of establishing a Washtenaw County
print Co-op and a "cooperative skills training program" to be
"open to interested University of Michigan students and
community youth,"
The court ordered last night that the funds be trans-
ferred from the "University of Michigan student print co-
operative fund" account to SGC's account.

Automobile owners in the state may see
a change in insurance programs - and
lower insurance rates - within the next
few months if the state legislature ap-
proves one of several "no fault" automo-
bile insurance programs currently under
study or soon to be introduced.

No representative of the print
co-op board was present.
The print co-op fund account
was established in December when
SGC filed suit against the irint
co-op board, claiming it had vio-
lated the agreement accompany-
ing the grant.
The funds were seized by CSJ
and placed in a joint account con-
trolled by CSJ vice-chairman
Mark Goldsmith and former print
co-op member Barbara Goldman.
Both Goldsmith's and Goldman's
signatures werehrequired for with-
drawal from the account.
In its ruling last night the
court accepted SGC representative
Michael Davis' allegation that a
valid agreement had been made
between the print co-op board
and SGC.
The original SGC motion stated
that the funds being allocated
were to be used to esablish a print
co-op in which students would
participate and that the grant
must be used to purchase printing
equipment by "winter '71".
Davis contended that "the terms
of the allocation and grant have
been violated."
Despite an objection by CSJ
member Karen Zuckerstein that
the provision of the SGC alloca-
tion that the funds must be spent
for printing equipment by "win-
ter '71" was "ambiguous", it was
disclosed last night that the court
had already effectively ruled on
the meaning of this provision.
In a court order mailed Dec.
7 to Davis and to Goldman, CSJ
specified that one of the con-
ditions for withdrawal from the
student print co-op account was
that "disbursement and purchase
must be made by January 1,
1972".
Davis also contended that

GROUP to
blockSG
allocations
By CHARLES STEIN
Expressing dissatisfaction wit
present spending policies, a coali-
tion of Student G o v e r n m e n t
Council members has pledged to
block all appropriation requests
brought before SGC in the next
month.
Their discontent is linked to a
general antagonism toward Coun-
cil administration, as demonstra-
ted by a revival of a measure call-
ing for the removal of Adminis-
trative Vice-President Jay Hack.
The move to block appropria-
tions is being made by the five
members of GROUP. Announcing
their intention in a statement at
last week's meeting, they were
later joined by Council member
Curt Steinhauer, a member of the
conservative Responsible Alterna-
tive Party. The six constitute a
majority of the eleven member
council and could therefore poten-
tially block passage of any ex-
ternal funding.
GROUP is a coalition made up
primarily of grad students who
have previously served on SGC.
They are politically left of cen-
ter, but have devoted most of
their energies on Council to a
host of procedural matters, par-
ticularly focusing on questions of
fiscal responsibility.
The purpose of the statement,
