New currency structure sought
by International Monetary Fund

Redistricting may dilute new vote

resolution of the board of gover-
nors of the International Mone-
tary Fund called on the 118
member nations yesterday to
proceed urgently to establish a
new and "satisfactory structure
of exchange rates" for their cur-
The resolution, prepared for
the board in an emergency pro-

cedure, also calls for "the reduc-
tion of restrictive trade and ex-
change practices." This would
include President Nixon's 10 per
cent import tax surcharge.
The proposal asks the 12-mem-
ber board of executive directors
to "make reports to the board
of governors without delay on
the measures that are necessary
or desirable for the improve-

ment or reform of the interna-
tional monetary system."
It was prefaced by an explana-
tion that the worldwide mone-
tary disruption-largely pr-cipi-
tated by President Nixon's Aug.
15 decision to halt the converti-
bility of dollars into gold--"con-
tains the dangers of instability
and disorder in currency and
trade relationships."
But, it said, the situation "also
offers the opportunity for con-
structive changes in the interna-
tional monetary system."
These changes - including the
possible eventual development of
a new international monetary
system based at least partly on
"paper gold," as recommended
by Britain, Japan, Italy a'id
France-are the objectives of the
instructions to the IMF's execu-
tive directors.
The resolution must be cleared
tomorrow by the IMF's commit-
tee on procedure, thenpresented
for approval to the full board of
governors on Friday, final day
of the annual meeting. Its adop-
tion is certain, officials said.

or up to six seats on the 10-man
City Council.
And with this in m i n d, the
Councilmen are taking an unusual
amount of interest in the redist-
ricting-to the extent of trying to
be able to do it themselves.
The redistricting will begin next
month when a citizens' ward
boundary commission receives the
final 1970 census data. O n c e,

However, one grad student in
resource ecology, 'when asked
about the effect of the depart-
mental reformation on the
school, responded m o r e nega-
tively. "The s a m e sort of
static ideas exist in the school
but only with a little more free-
dom in the undergraduate pro-
gram," he says.'
Another major element of the
reorganization is the altered na-
ture of the undergraduate pro-
gram. A student can take a
broad environmentally oriented
education or a specific curricu-
lum leading to either profes-
sionalism or specialization in a
variety of resource and environ-
mental areas," a school publica-
tion says.
According to Preston, the
change in the undergraduate
program is "a major departure
and a vast improvement" from
past practice.
Most students seem to appre-
ciate the flexible program now
offered, but one junior said the
loose program let too many
students "drift" t h r o u g h the
school with no particular ob-
The reorganization also called
,or the creation of a Student
Policy Advisory Committee.
The committee, recently as-
sembled, has four student mem-
bers who will supply student
input into decision making, Pres-
ton says, and will also advise
Dean McFadden.
However, one natural resources
grad student, comments that the
new committee will only be able
to consider those matters that

to it, and will tnerefore be re-
stricted in its role.
Despite its intimate ties with
other departments and schools
within the University, the natural
resources school is for some
students an unknown quantity.
For minority group students
and faculty this is especially
true. Black students and faculty
are conspicuously absent from
the school and there is only one
woman faculty member.
Preston admits the lack of
more than token minority par-
ticipation in the school, , com-
menting that "very few women
and blacks are attracted to the
fields of natural resources."
"But," Preston says, "work is
being done to improve the situ-
"The number of female stu-
dents has increased greatly and
there are more female teaching
fellows than males now," he
In Fall, 1968 there were 34
women out of 412 students in the
natural resources school. In Fall,
1970 there were 126 women out
of a total of 662 students.
"There is also a committee
that has been working on increas-
ing minority enrollment for a
couple of years," Preston con-
Last fall, the faculty approved
the recommendations of an ad
hoc group including one com-
miting the school to increase its
black enrollment to 10 per cent
or "failing that to share the
resources with those University
units that can do so."

sus 10 years from now.
However, the boundaries could
be withdrawn earlier if c o u r t
rulings make it necesasry. For
instance, the boundaries were re-
drawn in 1967 to comply with the
Supreme Court's one-man one-
vote decision that required dis-
tricts to be drawn so that they
were nearly equal in population.
The regulations governing re-
districting don't allow m u c h
leeway, according to Robert Grace,

The move for the amendment
started several months ago. After
unsuccessfully' running write - in
candidates in the city election,
RIP urged that changes be made'
in the city charter to make it
easier for third parties to get on
the ballot.
In response, City Council formed
a Citizens Committee on Third
Parties and Related Matters to
study the problem.
The committee recommended the
charter be amended so t h a t
groups with signatures totalling
one per cent of the vote cast for
the successful mayoral candidate
in the last election - or 150
signatures - be allowed on the
ballot. Council changed this fig-
ure to 1,500 and approved t h e
If the court permits the amend-
ment, it must still be approved by
the voters before it can become
effective. If the city loses the de-
claratory judgment, there are at
present no plans to appeal to a
higher state court. Council could,

Schuman resolution) without dis-
cussing the recommendations of

"I think there will be ample
time for consideration of amend-
ments. to the resolution',, he said,
"to clear up much of the confus-
ion in the minds of the members
of Senate Assembly."
Graduate sociology student Jane
Hood, a member of the RPC, dealt
with the problem facing sup-

Under the city charter, t h e
city must be divided into five1
wards, emanating from the center
of the city in pie-shaped sectors.
This way, Grace says, the wards
tend to reflect a cross-section of
the city or "a little bit of every-
body and not a lot of anybody."
The ward boundaries must fol-i
low natural boundaries or main
streets as much as possible and
observe prior ward boundaries
wherever possible, Grace says. I
"However," he emphasizes, "the
single most important considera-
tion is that they must be as equal
in population as possible under the
one-man one-vote ruling."
The commission has received
some, but not all, of thercensus
data. If the data does not come
in before mid-October, four
months before the city's February
primary, the commission will not
be required to complete its work
by then.
Yet even if it does finish the
redistricting in time, the commis-
sion's proposal may be turned
down by City Council.
Two weeks ago, the generally
cut-and-dried process of redis-
tricting was given some contro-
versy as the six Republican mem-
bers of City Council voted to add
themselves to the commission.
Mayor Robert Harris quickly ve-
toed the measure.
To get approval of their mea-
sure now, the Republicans would
need a two-thirds Council major-
ity - an impossibility with the 6-4
party split on Council.

their choice, would probably like
to place the students all in one
ward to minimize students' impact
on Council.
The Democrats, meanwhile,
would probably favor spreading
the students out through a num-'
ber of wards. In this way, they
could probably add the student
vote to their ranks, while mini-
mizing the chances that a large
concentrated student bloc would
put a Radical Independent Party
candidate on Council.

Rhodes call

In an effort to create "a neutr
ground where the College of Lite
ature, Science, and the Arts ce
become a community again," Dee
Frank Rhodes has announced
series of "coffee hours."
The first of the weekly Wedne
day coffees will be held today ar
in succeeding weeks from 3-4:
p.m. in the Dean's Conferen
Room, 2549 LSA Bldg.
Rhodes envisions the coffee hou
as "forums for bringing about o
going discussion and debate abo
the college." All of LSA's 16,0
students and over 1,000 facul
members are invited to participa
in the informal discussions.
"The real problem with LSA
the sheer size of it," Rhodes e
plains. He hopes that for the fir
time, the "richness in LSA can k
opened up" and that the forum:
particular will bring the collet
closer together. -

work we think you'll find challenging and
responsible. And Lawyer's Assistants are now
so critically needed that The Institute for
Paralegal Training can offer you a position
in the city of your choice and a higher solary
than you'd expect as a recent college gradu-
ate. You'll work with lawyers on interesting
legal problems-and the rewards will grow
as you do.
