Cut sought in

Faculty body


SGC funds

Students will soon be asked
again to tax themselves to pay
for the costs of the many small
student governments in the Uni-
versity's schools and colleges.
S t u d e n t government repre-
sentatives from several of the
University's academic divisions
met yesterday to finalize the fund-
ing plan, which will appear among
the referenda on the Student
Government Council (SGC) ballot
next month.
A similar proposal appeared -on
the SGC ballot last spring and
was defeated.
Several explanations were given
at yesterday's meeting for the
spring failure. Some representa-
tives said the amount. of money
asked for then was too much, and
that appearing on a joint fund-
ing proposal with SGC had
"dragged it down."
The proposal adopted yester-
day asks that students tax them-
selves 50 cents per term which
would go to individual student
governments.-Each student's mon-
ey would be given to his student
This amount would mean a fifty
percent cut from the dollar per
term request which appeared on
the spring ballot and will appear
on the ballot as completely sepa-
rate from the SGC funding pro-
Unlike the college student gov-
ernments, SGC plans to increase
its funding request on the No-
vember ballot, explained SGC
president Rebecca Schenk.
Although last spring SGC asked
for a 60 cent increase, the No-
vember proposal will probably ask'
for an increase of "three to five
dollars" in student funding, she
The SGC proposal will ask that
75 per cent of the funding increase
be "committed to projects such as
the Print Co-op and the Food
Co-op," Schenk explained.
The November college govern-
ment funding proposal will stipu-
late that the money would be sub-
ject to "automatic dispersement."
explained Lyn Epstein, Student
Government Advocate.
If a college does not have a rep-
resentative government considered
eligiblo by thn Central Student
Judiciary (CS.J), then that col-
lege's allocated money will remain
in a fund for 14 months.

An ad hoc group of stu-
dents critical of Student
Government C o.u n c ii has
completed a petition drive
aimed at challenging current
student financial support of
that body.
Brad Taylor, '74 filed the, re-
quisite 1,000 student signatures
with SGC's administrative secre-
tary yesterday in time to meet the
filing deadline for referenda on
the November SGC ballot.
A 25 cent per-student, per-se-
mester allotment to SGC has been
in effect since 1954, when a new
SGC constitution approved the al-
location of this money from each
student's tuition.
Although the referendum's pro-
ponents hope for a tuition de-
crease, Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Allen Smith said
last night that "lowering tuition
by $.25 a semester is not a feas-
ible proposition."
Smith explained that if the re-
ferendum were passed it would be
possible to "reallocate money in-
tended for SGC."
Taylor, an SGC member and a
leader of the drive, says he hopes
the expected vote will result in
"some form of student government
which will not act as a funding
agency for pet political move-
ments of the moment."
Taylor claims SGC is not re-
sponsive enough to student needs
Instead of the current system, he
advocates "undertaking the tui-
tion postponement option in e-
fect at Yale and dealing with the
serious problem of faculty who
abuse the library system by taking
books out for unlimited periods
of time."
SGC's major allocations in the
last year have included funding
for a student print cooperative
providing offset printing at cheap-
er than commercial rates as well
as a Women's Crisis center oper-
ating a 24 hour telephone and
counseling service.
In asking students to sign the
petition, members of the political-
ly conservative group pointed to

spring alloting $50 to buy blood
plasma and medical supplies for
non-combatant women and chil-
dren in Indochina.

ses in the approximately $10,000

NEW YORK () - H. Rap
Brown, the black militant who is
one of the FBI's most wanted fu-
gitives, was removed from the in-
tensive care unit at Roosevelt Hos-
pital to a private room yesterday.
His condition continued "fair" the
hospital said.
Brown and three other men
were captured by police after they
allegedly tried to .rob a bar and
some crapshooters outside the bar
on the Upper West Side.


In the aftermath of an
eight-month debate, Senate
Assembly yesterday gave its
endorsement to the final draft
of a proposal which would
ban most classified research
projects from the University.
The faculty representative body's
proposal, however, will not become
official University policy unless it
is approved by the Regents-who
are expected to consider it at their
November meeting.
The new policy had been en-
dorsed in spirit by Assembly at a
special meeting Oct. 4. The pro-
posal was subsequently sent to the
Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs-the top faculty
body-for final wording.
The proposal states that the
University "will not enter into or
renew any federal contracts or
grants that limit open publication
of the results.
"This general policy," it con-
tinues, "will be suspended only in
cases where the proposed research
is likely to contribute so signifi-
cantly to the advancement of
knowledge as to justify the in-
fringement of the freedom to pub-
lish openly. In all cases, the bur-
den of proof rests with the faculty

Council approved, by a 6-4 vote split along party lines, a
resolution to name Republican Robert Meader as a commis-

said he would probably veto the resolution next week.

The trio-Sam Petty, 23; Ar-
thur Young, 25, and Levi Valen-
tine, 24-were arraigned in a
courtroom crowded with support-
ers who greeted them with
clenched fist salutes.
Criminal Court Judge James
Yeaglin warned that the court-

room would be cleared if there
were further demonstrations, and
there weren't any.
The defendants are held in
$150,000 bail each.
Lawyer William Kunstler asked
for an immediate hearing, but
Judge Yeaglin delayed it 24 hours
after he was told the wounded
policemen were unable to appear.
The four defendants are charg-
ed with attempted homicide, rob-
bery and possession of dangerous
weapons. They allegedly robbed
25 black patrons of a Manhattan
bar early Saturday, and shot it
out with, police who arrived as
they emerged from the bar.
All four were arrested in a
nearby apartment building. Brown
was hit by two bullets, but the
others were not wounded.
