to prison for nine to ten years

marijuana nearly two years ago,
that the party become deeply en-
meshed in the local political cli-
mate.
Since Sinclair's imprisonment,
the party's goals have centered
on calling for the legalization of
marijuana and the release of
Sinclair.
Changing their name to the

Rainbow People's Party this last
summer in an effort to rid their
name from any violent conno-
tations, the party launched a
major fund-raising drive in
May for the Free John Sinclair
Committee, composed of such
prominent persons as Allen
Ginsberg, Jane Fonda, and State
Rep. Jackie Vaughn (D-Detroit).
When not concentrating on
political goals, party members
also work with its relatively new
food co-op, which provides foods

torneys for the activists had
sought a federal judge ruling
that any wiretap evidence be
illegal for the grand jury's use.
Stating, however, that there
was no precedent for an "anti-
cipatory hearing" in the case,
'f Federal Judge Cornelia Ken-
nedy ruled that the six witness-
es did not have a right to a
hearing on the legality of po-
tential grand jury evidence be-
fore they testified.
At points during the subse-
quent grand jury proceedings in
Detroit, one activist said she
was threatened with the death
penalty for espionage act vio-
lations and another said he
was accused of having sold mi-
crofilms of secret government
documents to the People's Re-
public of China.
Kathy Canada told newsmen
that Asst. U.S. Atty. Gen. Guy
Goodwin "threatened" her with
the death penalty or life impri-
sonment after she refused to
answer questions about her
knowledge of either the alleged
microfilms or of herr ex-hus-
band's alleged sale of microfilms
to te'hie.

following changes in the ROTC,
program:
-Asking the Department of
Defense to assume the full costs
of the ROTC program;,
-Referring to ROTC instruc-
tors by their, military rank
rather than as "professor" un-
less they hold academic appoint-
ments;
-Reconstituting a University
committee that previously ruled
only on appointments of ROTC
department heads to supervise
the entire ROTC curriculum, to
approve the appointment of all
ROTC personnel and to mediate
disputes between students and
ROTC; and
-Designating ROTC as a
"program" rather than a "de-
partment" of the University.
In December, the Regents
approved all of these suggestions
with the exception of the recom-
mendation that ROTC credit be
ceased by academic units. Their
contention at the time was that
the individual schools and col-
leges should have the authority
to decide whether or not to
grant credit for a particular
course.
The Regents, in giving their
a p p ro v a l to the proposed
changes, emphasized that their
action was an attempt to pre-
serve ROTC, not abolish it.

Members of the Rainbow
People's Party co-op volunteer
their services to the group "at
cost."
Decisions on buying and gen-
eral co-op policy are made by
regular membership meetings.
Co-op members go on weekly
shopping expeditions to the
large former's market in De-
troit, and fill orders.
As of early summer, the Rain-
bow People's Party said over
200 families participated in its
co-op.
Another major endeavor of
the party has been in the area
of drug help. The party can
claim a good share of respon-
sibility for the success of Ozone
House and related projects.
Ozone House was originally
conceived as an open gathering
place for the "street" people of
Ann Arbor, and to offer serv-
ices such as providing a travel-
er or run-away a bed.
Recently the project has ex-
panlded into a free medical clin-
ic as well as free drug counsel-
ling center.
A drug library has just been
started and extensive drug edu-
cation program has also begun.
Another important activity of
the party has been its news-
paper, 'the Ann Arbor Sun,'
which functions similarly to
most other "youth culture"
newspapers.
Though not without many
problems the Rainbow people
have succeeded in creating a
firm base for communal living.

which has been quite active
during the last term.
Kurtz, a graduate student in
social work, says "I would work
with any woman on anything.
Any woman's interest interest
me as a woman's advocate."
The activities of the office re-
flect that philosophy, for proj-
ects of the office have included
such varying things as the fol-
lowing:
-Helping to set up a Wom-
en's Movement Office, which in-
cludes a library and copying
machinery and serves as "a
place for woman to go" to share
ideas and problems and,
-Working with the Universi-
ty Curriculum Committee to for-
mulate plans for establishing a
women's study program. The
program would hopefully offer
courses on women in each de-

partment (journalism, history
and psychology courses on wom-
en already exist).
The black advocate situation
is unique, for, besides the black
advocate office itself, a special
assistant vice president for stu-
dent services, Charles Kidd, is
in charge of working with mi-
nority reform at the University.
Kidd works predominantly
with the administration, plan-
ning programs specifically for
minority groups, with emphasis
on blacks.
The possibility of a fourth
advocate's office was discussed
during the summer, as members
of Radical Lesbians and Gay
Liberation Front pressed for a
homosexual advocate.
As of mid-July, it appeared
that their efforts would be re-
warded and a fourth advocate
office established.

PREFACE
The rules and procedures stated in this folder were approved by the University's Board of Regents
in April of 1970 to provide a temporary mechanism, which might be superseded by more perma-
nent rules and procedures.
In April of 1971 the Regents adopted a new judiciary plan based on recommendations of the Ad
Hoc Committee on a Permanent University Judiciary. The new system will go into effect for
a one-year trial period as soon as the Court of Appeals of the University judiciary is operational
and a manual of procedures is approved. Then, until regulations prepared by the University
Council are approved, the new judicial system will adjudicate the interim rules.
As of the beginning of the fall term of 1971, therefore, the interim rules and disciplinary pro-
cedures are in effect.
