'U'showinigs
By TONY SCHWARTZ and KAREN TINKLENBERG
An agreement to withdraw the Orson Welles Film So-
ciety'snrecognitiontas a student group was reached last night
at a special meeting of Student Government Council.
The move came as a surprise to most observers. SGC had
been expected to hear charges of improper conduct against
Orson Welles last night and to act on the allegations Nov. 10.
The agreement between Vic Gutman, director of Stu-
dent Organizations, and representatives of Orson Welles, will
prevent the group from further campus film showings as of
Dec. 23.
Gutman originally charged Orson Welles with signing for
use of an auditorium under an assumed name and with ad-

tify the sponsoring organiza-

Prior to last night he had
planned to bring an expanded
group of charges to SGC, includ- ]
ing allegations that Orson Welles en lis tm e n t
used a film without permission
from the distributor, harassed
other campus film groups and op-
erated for profit.
In addition to dissolving Orson t u h n

the agreement stipulated that: WASHINGTON () - The Penta-

SGC

to resume

filling

seats on advisory units

By LINDSAY CHANEY
After a prolonged lapse, Stu-'
dent Government C o u n c 11 will
begin appointing student repre-
sentatives to a wide variety of
University advisory committees.
Over 15 student posts are cur-
rently open on the advisory com-
mittees of Senate Assembly, the,
faculty representative group, and
ion such units as the Board of
Directors of University Cellar and
the Office of Student Services Pol-
icy Board.
The failure of the present SGC
administration to make appoint-

ments is the result of a "break-
down in the appointing mechan-
ism," according to SGC President
Rebecca Schenk.
"SGC has not made appoint-'
ments to advisory committees for'
a long time," said Schenk. "As a
result, we do not have an appoint-
ing procedure."
Schenk said she was not aware
of the number of student open-
ings on Senate Assembly commit-
tees until two weeks ago.
Previous SGC administrations,
have been reluctant to appoint'

University officials agreed Tues-1
day to implement the Homecoming
theme endorsed by Student Gov-
4rnment Council-"Bring all the
troops home now; Let's have a
real homecoming" - by allowing
the anti-war halftime activities.

Ave. and 15th streets, one block
from the White House.
According to Chicago 7 defend-
ant John Froines, also a PCPJ
leader, the group considers the
arrests "unconstitutional" and will
fight them in court.
The basis of the argument, he
said, is that while a permit was
granted for a march to the White
House Monday, the government
refused the permit for Tuesday
when Monday's demonstration was
rained out.
Later, however, a PCPJ legal
advisor discounted the constitu-
tional aspect of the court contest.
While refusing to comment di-
rectly on what thrust PCPJ's legal
strategy would take; he did prom-j
ise "extensive litigation fightinga

mittees which do not have policy-
making power or committees where
students do not have parity with
f a c u It y members, according to
Schenk.
"I agree with this philosophy,"
said Schenk, "But as a practicalf
matter,.I think students should
have an input in decision-making."1
Some observers believe that SGC
has begun the appointment mech-
anism at this time to assert its
authority as an all-campus stu-
dent government by appointing
graduate as well as undergraduate
students.
In the past, the now-defunct
Graduate Assembly made appoint-'
ments when a committee specific-G
ally required a graduate student
and SGC was invited to make
undergraduate appointments and!
appointments which did not spec-1
ify whether the position was for
a graduate or undergraduate.
A Graduate Federation, which
is designed to take over the func-
tions of the old Graduate Assem-
bly, has not yet been ratified by
all graduate college governments.
SGC thus hopes to take advantage
of the lack of a graduate appoint-
ing body to make all graduate
appointments itself.
SGC has long contended that it
is the only body authorized to
make committee appointments -
graduate or undergraduate.
According to the SGC constitu-
tion, Council is empowered to
"serve as the appointing body for
selection of members of student
committees, student representa-
tives to University committees and
student representatives to outside
bodies."

based onsHunter's "insubordima

Thecity succeeded in dismissingK
Hunter until April 7, when Judge

that a meeting between the re-
