Daystar endangered
In the past week a problem
has arisen that threatens to
end the UAC-Daystar Concert
Series.
The University has informed
UAC-Daystar that unless smok-
ing and other violations of fire
regulations, including blocking
the aisles, are completely halt-
ed by this Sunday's Command-
er Cody concert, the University
will not permit the group to
use its halls for concerts, ef-
fectively ending the series.
UAC-Daystar has released a
statement urging all concert-
goers to refrain from smoking
anything while inside the audi-
torium, emphasizing that smok-
ing will be permitted in lobbies
and rest rooms.

about 60 per cent. The last abor-
tion referendum, conducted in
Washington state, passed with a
56 per cent endorsement.
Abortion reform bills have
been brought up in the state
legislature since 1968 but have
all been defeated. However, the
bills have become more liberal,
evolving from the 1968 proposal

permitting abortion only in. cases
of the mother's mental and phy-
sical health to the present bill
permitting abortion upon de-
mand.
18 states have legalized abor-
tion already with three of them,
New York, Alaska, and Hawaii,
liberalizing their laws to the ex-
tent now proposed for Michigan
reform.

CORRECTION
In a story yesterday concern-
ing the resignation of two mem-
bers of the LSA student govern-
ment, The Daily incorrectly re-
ported that the government was
considering petitioning for LSA
student representation on all-
University committees.
Bill Jacobs, a member of the
government, said today: "Our
position is that SGC is the only
body that can represent students
and appoint students to all-
campus committees."
Also, contrary to a report in
The Daily, Jacobs says that pro-
ceedings have been set in motion
to fill the vacancies caused by
the resignations.

by-law was passed. Knauss pre-
sented a solution to the prob-
lem by saying the board decisions
would be binding on him, regard-
less of the by-laws' standing.
With Knauss' installation and
the later passage of the by-law
making the board a reality, the
office began to function. And the
policy board's effectiveness as a
vehicle for student power remain-1
ed to be seen.
Knauss b elie.v e s the policy
board has proved successful for
his office. "I wouldn't recommend
it across the board," he says. "I
think in this office, where you are
concerned with student services,
that the primary and principal
responsibility f o r determining
what services are needed should
be in the hands of the students,
that are being served. But when
you move over, for example, to the
plant department or in academic
affairs, then I'm not sure that a
policy board as such would be an;
effective way."
Members of both the policy
board and Knauss' staff feel that
the concept of a policy board is a
sound one, but problems have ex-j
isted with the present board over
the past eighteen months.-
Chi Chi Lawson, assistant to
vice president Knauss, says last
year'the board had a problem of

members on the board, believes
that in the future the job of the
board will be more specific. Dur-;
ing the first year the policy board
"was a brand new tool in a brand
new office. You had to feel your
way around", she explains.
The concept of a student-domi-
nated policy board was originally
perceived as a means of handling
student input in the decision-
making process within the Uni-
versity. However it is uncertain
just how well the OSS policy
board and Knauss have met that
objective.
"One thing that happened in
the past year is that the general
climate has changed as far as
the activities of students and stu-
dent groups on campus. Knauss
says. I think many of our staff
have been used to a period of
time over the last three or four
years where they were primarily
reacting to a crisis."
"Well that has changed," he
continues. "The staff have to be
out initiating things because the
climate is such now that the stu-
dents are not going to be clamor-4
ing to be in. And for OSS to be a
reacting group means it's not go-
ing to do much. It took us quite
a while to realize this, that there,
had been that change. And forl
some of the staff people it was
hard for them to realize there had

Rains says that the student
control was generally successful.
"Those who really wanted to get
I~ involved had the opportunity for

a tremendous amount of input,
however it was'taken advantage of
by a very small number of stu-
dents."
Schenk, says student input has
not reached a good medium
throughout the office. "Most stu-
dents who sit on policy boards
don't know enough about their
jobs, myself included. Student in-
put is not as strong as it could
be."
Knauss assesses his major
achievement as that of initiating
a complete reorganization of OSS,
beginning last spring. OSS was
changed from a group of eight
fairly autonomous divisions to five
units controlled by committees di-
rectly responsible to the vice pres-
ident and the OSS policy board.
The five committees, consisting
of Housing, Counseling Special
Services and Programs, Career
Planning and Placement, and the
Health Service, all have their own
student dominated policy com-
mittees.
"Reorganization t o o k t w o
forms," Knauss explains. "One
was reorganization - what peo-
i ple are in which offices - but an-
other part of it was trying to de-
cide function, which is something
really separate from reorganiza-
tion.
"We did accomplish getting the
staff people to be more aware of
what else is going on in the of-
fice, getting much better cross-
contact between staff people."
Student and faculty board mem-
bers, in addition to members of
Knauss' staff agree that the re-
organization has been successful.
According to John Feldkamp, di-
rector of housing, the reorganiza-
tion seemed to fulfill many hous-
ing needs. He looks on the hous-
ing policy committee as a means
of making policy decisions more
acceptable, and as a way to gain
trust and student responsiveness.
Other major programs originat-
ing from OSS in the past include:
-The creation of a Legal Aid
Clinic on campus. Funding for the
clinic was recently extended for
another year by the Regents;
-The creation of a drug edu-
cation program that includes both
student and community groups;
-The creation of the special in-
terest advocates and the sexuality
program providing counkling for
aomosexual students;
-The expansion of the coun-
seling services and the creation
of the 24-hour Referral and In-
formation Service (76-Guide); and
-The creation of an anti-dis-
crimination recruiting policy,
which was latersubstantially
modified by the Regents.
