FINAL DECISION:
SGC to vote&

on judiciary1
By ROBERT SCHREINER
Student Government Council President Rebecca Schenk
said last night SGC will make a final decision next Thursday
on whether to comply with administrative steps toward im-
plementing the campus-wide judiciary system approved by
the Regents last spring.
Until then, SGC members will contact the Regents to
communicate their dissatisfaction with several aspects of the
judiciary draft.
Schenk said if any of the Regents express interest in
revising the proposed plan to assuage SGC's objections, Coun-
cil will contact President Robben Fleming and Secretary of
the University Richard Ken-
G rot'dy to set up appropriate
meetings.
"At our regular meeting next
Thursday, we will definitely make
T our final decision on whether to
o rs follow the steps, but I have no
idea what that decision will be,"

Despite past pronounce-

appears the University sub-
sidy of the Reserve Officers
Training Corps (ROTC) will
continue - at least for the
present.
In December, 1969, following. .
years of protest against ROTC, the
Regents moved to negotiate a plan
with the Department of Defense
(DOD) under which the federal
government would assume the
total cost of the program.

"We have hopes of reaching a

A memo last Monday from Ken-

steps pertaining to the adoption
of the new judiciary mechanism.

Course Mart has compiled a "stock a n d Senate Assembly - the top

This summer, after two years of
negotiation, it was thought DOD
would soon be paying a subsidy of
$500 per cadet which would par-
tially cover costs incurred by the
University through the operation
of the program.
However, University Administra-
tive Dean Robert Williams said
yesterday that DOD has withdrawn
support for a congressional bill
providing subsidy funds, thus min-
imizing its chances for passage.
Williams emphasized that the
withdrawal from the subsidy did
not mean DOD intended to forego
reimbursement entirely. According
to Williams DOD is presently "try-
ing to find a formula which will
meet the needs of all institutions"
with ROTC programs.
In direct and indirect cost, the
burden to the University of main-
taining the ROTC program is
about $200,000 to $300,000 a year.
This includes annual expendi-
tures of roughly $55,000 for sup-
portive services such as secre-
taries, roughly $50,000 a year for
janitorial services and mainte-
nance of North Hall and the lossj
of $100.000 to $200,000 per year

Through the program a student
can now obtain academic credit
for subjects ranging from theI
study of urban design in relation
to urban problems or the history
of American student movements
to the investigation of constitu-
tional criminal procedure or the
history of blues.
"And this g r o w t h has been
achieved," says Pete Jacobson, a
member of the Course Mart's gov-
erning board, "without the alter-
ation of the basic goal-curricular|
innovation for the benefit. of the
student."
The growth of the program has
not been without its problems,
however, with frequent questions
arising over the quality and ad-
ministration of the Course Mart.
As early as October of 1969 re-j
views of the Course Mart's func-
tionings were undertaken, but not
until February of last year, during'

Cases identified for possible sex
discrimination will be examined
by a review team, made up of the
Commission on Women's repre-
sentative and a representative of
the personnel.
If the two reviewers and the
supervisor of the employe involved
all agree that sex discrimination
exists, their finding is forwarded
for review and action by the Uni-
versity's executive officers.
In cases where the three parties
- the two reviewers and the sup-
ervisor - disagree, each sends his
or her own recommendations to
the Ad Hoc File Review Board for
review. The Board members are
appointed by the University presi-
dent and consist of at least three
members representing both em-
ploye and supervisor points of
view. The Board's recommenda-
ticns are forwarded to the Uni-
versity executive officers for re-
view and action.
Employes can also request an
investigation if they feel that their
salaries are considerably less than
those of their male coworkers. Be-

According to Williams, however,
ROTC escaped University reviews
which resulted in the termination
of several other programs, includ-
ing the Center for Research on
Conflict Resolution. This was due,
he explained, to a two-year-old re-
gental policy to maintain the pro-
gram.
At present the Navy, Air Force,
and Army all use North Hall fore

According to Williams, however,
North Hall is "not being used 100
per cent," and space in the build-

be used by other departments."

"There was a problem in that

Robert Harris said yesterday. "I
spoke to the city administrator
about it and he spoke to the po-

Harris added he is awaiting

The mayor said that while
there are no exact criteria for
determining which statute to
prosecute under, he said he ex-

the offense is covered by it. -
The new ordinance passed by
a 6-5 margin made possession
and sale of marijuana other
than for profit a misdemeanor
punishable by no more than a
$100 fine and 90 days in jail. It
was designed to provide the city
with an alternative to the harsh-
er state law.
Under existing state law, pos-

punishable by up to 10 years in
