.judic plan
By HESTER PULLING
and ROBERT KRAFTOWITZ
Senate Assembly, the faculty representative body, las
nigh called on the Regents to adopt the major elements of
the proposed University judicial system, but urged that several
aspects of the plan be altered.
By an overwhelming vote, Assembly endorsed a key
element of the plan - the use of a randomly-selected student
jury in cases involving a student defendant.
However, the faculty body called for changes in the pro-
cedure for ruling on motions by the defendant and plaintiff
in disciplinary trials.
The Regents will discuss the judiciary proposal at a
closed meeting today with the student-faculty-administration
committee that drafted the proposal.

Regents to
consider
The Regents will confer in
closed session today with the
ad-hoc judiciary committee on
its proposed University - wide
disciplinary procedure.
The proposed judiciary provides
for an all-student jury to decide
guilt and punishment in cases
w h e r e students are defendants.
Trials would be presided over by
an outside legal expert, along with
student and f a c u I t y associate
judges.
However, Senate Assembly, the
faculty representative body, and
various schools and colleges are
also presenting to the Regents for
consideration, their revisions in
the proposal.
The Regents discussed the pro-
posed plan at their December
meeting. Although the Regents
did not comment on specific fea-
tures of the proposal, President
Robben Fleming said all the Re-
gents expressed doubts about the
judiciary.
"No Regent entirely accepts the
plan as it is written," Fleming told
members of the ad hoc judiciary
committee at a special session
Dec. 19.
According to Regent Robert
Nederlander (D-Detroit), the Re-
gents today hope to "thoroughly
discuss" the judiciary proposal
and "wrap it up as soon as pos-
sible."
Inother action, the Regents will
hear briefings from the adminis-
tration on the status of the,
AFSCME strike, and decide whe-
ther to close the University if the
workers have not returned to their
jobs, an informed source said yes-
terday.
Besides their closed meetings,
thehRegents will also hold a pub-
lic hearing from 4:30 to 5:30 this
afternoon in the Anderson Room
of the Michigan Union.1
The Regents will hear discus-f
? sions on the merits of the pass-
fail grading system. According to
Richard Kennedy, secretary of the
University and assistant to theE
president, some students felt thatI
graduate schools preferred letter
grales to pass-fail marks.
See REGENTS, Page 6

A major criticism by Assembly
of the judiciary plan was the re-
quirement for unanimity in jury
decisions. Many Assembly mem-
bers expressed concern that such a
provision would result in many
"hung juries" and delay the re-
solution of the disciplinary pro-
ceeding.
Under the committee's proposal,
the six jury members would deter-
mine guilt and punishment by a
unanimous vote. Assembly recom-
mended the jury's verdict be de-
cided by a majority vote.
Commenting on Assembly's ac-
tion, Student Government Council
President Marty Scott, a member
of the drafting committee, said,
"The most important thing Assem-
bly did was to endorse the pro-
posal."
While he criticized Assembly':.
suggested changes in the plan, he
said he was pleased that the fac-
ulty body "found the document
basically acceptable."
So far, the judiciary committee
proposal has been endorsed either
in principle or with minor chang-
es by the public health, social
work, architecture and design, ed-
ucation, engineering, library sci-
ence, literary, music, nursing and
pharmacy college faculties.
However, the law, dentistry, na-
tural resources and graduate
school facilities have urged that
the plan be rejected.
The Lawyers Club, the student
group in the law school, endorsed
the plan last week.
The literary college student gov-
ernment executive council, while
endorsing the plan, said it would
accept the proposal only because
it represented a consensus of the
University community.
In other action, Assembly vot-
ed to approve the proposed new
Sports Service Bldg. Following
several budget cuts announced by
the administration last October,
Assembly members expressed con-
cern to President Robben Fleming
over the need for a service build-
ing, and appointed a committee to
study tha proposal.
Last night. on the committee's
recommendation. Assembly urged
the Regents to approve the plan.
The Regents will discuss the pro-
posal at tomorrow's public meet-
ing.
Two of Assembly's criticisms of
the judiciary plan were directed
at the makeup and powers of a
panel which would preside over
all trials in the proposed court
system. Since the panel would
have the power to rule on motions
by either the plaintiff or the
df'fndant. it would have to decide
such se"citivp nustions as whe-

STRIKE
DORMS
STAY OPEN;
SERVICE CUT .
By LINDA DREEBEN
and GERI SPRUNG
While Union leaders urged
AFSCME members to return
to their jobs last night, it re-
mained unclear whether food
service and maintenance
would resume in the dorms to-
day.
During the continued walk-out
by University service and mainten-
ance employes yesterday, dormi-
tories continued operating, pro-
viding only minimal services.
Food lines had been closed Tues-
day night.
Picketing continued around
campus yesterday, preventing de-
liveries at the dorms and other
University facilities.
The accumulation of trash pre-
sented the most serious health
hazard, said one housing official,
while the lack. of food services re-
mained the major inconvenience
to the dorm residents.
Director of University Housing
John Feldkamp said yesterday that
while the dorm situation is pre-
sently "tolerable", it may become
more serious in the next few
days due to an accumulation of
trash and combustible materials.
University officials have spec-
ulated that if the 9,000 dorm res-
idents have to leave the halls, it
would be unlikely that classes>
could continue or that the Uni-
versity remain open.
In most dorms, according to
several directors, the general UNIV
maintenance work is being done Unive
by non-union staff, dieticians, of- -------
fice workers, and students.
Minimal services, a director ex-
plained, consist mainly of heat,
water, and mail delivery.
Linen service is available in
most of the dorms, but directors
were unsure as to how long clean
linen would last.
Elevator service has been dis-
continued in South Quad since the
elevators could not be serviced in
the event of a breakdown. Ping-
pong rooms and pin-ball machine
rooms were closed in East Quad
and South Quad.

LOCAL WILL CONSIDER
BINDING FACT-FINDING
By JONATHAN MILLER
and SARA FITZGERALD
Negotiators for Local 1583 of the American Federatic
of State, County and Municipal Employes (AFSCME) agree
last night to recommend their members return to work t
end a two day strike against the University.
The back-to-work order came in a joint statement issue
by the union and University after seven hours of close
door meetings with Circuit Court Judge William Ager Jr.
However Charles McCracken, president of the local, sai
last night that, "it's impossible to expect people to go bac
to work immediately." - -

TO

OT

-Daily-Tom Stanton
ERSITY ATTORNEYS leave the courtroom-yesterday following a tentative decision by the
rsity and the union to end the strike and submit to joint fact-finding.

'THE HEAT IS ON'

He added that the general
membership meeting of the union,
at 9 a.m. this morning will vote
on the recommendation of the
negotiating team to accept bind-
ing fact-finding. McCracken also
said the membership would have
to vote on final ratification, even
if they accepted binding fact-
finding.
It is unclear whether the mem-
bership will vote to return to
work, as they voted last Sunday
by an overwhelming majority to
continue a strike until final rati-
fication of a new contract.
Although the fact finding pro-
cedure is not ordinarily binding
on the disputing parties, in this
case it will be if the union mem-
bership and the Regents agree to
the recommendations of their re-
spective negotiating teams.
The fact-finder will meet with
the two sides beginning at 10 a.m.
today.
The fact finder for the nego,
tiations will be William Ellmann
of Detroit who was appointed yes-
terday by the Michigan Employ-
ment R e l a t i o n s Commission
(MERC).
When asked last night how long
the fact-finding process would
take, Ellmann said, "I usually take
about two weeks to hear the argu-
ments by each side and then about
a week to file my report."
University and union officials
had estimated the length of time
required for fact. finding to be
from a month to six weeks.
The University and the union
have both agreed to recommend
acceptance of therecommenda-
tions of a fact finder, the Univer-
sity negotiators to the Regents and
the union to its members.
The University also agreed last
night to drop its request for legal
restraints against the union strike.
"This statement will dispense with
the necessity of court action at
this time," said University Attor-
ney William Saxton after last
night's court hearing.
However both sides stated last
night that they will seek the help
of the court at a later date of this
should become necessary.
Union President "Charles Mc-
Cracken refused to comment last
night on the fact that a vote of
the AFSCME membership, which
would have had the effect of main-
taining the strike until ratifica-

and South Vietnamese officers are
traveling together on command
and control helicopters in Cam-
bodia and periodically setting foot
on the ground-despite Pentagon
assertions to the contrary-it was
learned reliably last night.
The Americans usually do not
spend "more thanlb or 15 minutes
on Cambodian soil" and land only
when necessary to get a briefing
or make a map coordination,
sources said.
In the Pentagon's latest state-
ments on the question of Ameri-
can participation in the Cambo-
dian operation, press officer Jerry
Friedheim said there were no U.S.
advisors in Cambodia, either in
the air or on the ground.
Secretary of Defense Melvin R.
Laird. at a news conference yes-
terday, replied "yes" when asked
whether he felt that legislation
passed Congress last Dec. 30, bar-
ring U.S. advisors or ground
troops in Cambodia, precluded
him from providing division or
regimental level advisors to Cam-
bodian or S o u t h Vietnamese
forces there.
The U.S. Command had no im-
mediate comment yesterday on
the claim that U.S. advisors were
flying with their Vietnamese coun-
terparts and occasionally setting
foot on Cambodian soil.
The sources familiar with the
operation of South Vietnamese
troops taking part in the massive
drive to open up Cambodia's
Highway 4, also provided a par-
tial identification of an American
who was photographed on the
ground in Cambodia last Thurs-
day.
The landing in the photography
occurred at Veal Renh, forward
command post for South Vietna-
mese forces making the northward
push through Stung Chhay Pass
and trying to 'bpen the road by
linking up with a Cambodian force
driving south.
"They were not on the ground
in excess of 10 or 15 minutes," the
sources said.

By KENNETH SCHULZE
Beginning Feb. 1, patients,
visitors and staff at University
Hospital and throughout the
Medical Center will have to buy
cigarettes elsewhere due to an
administrative order banning
cigarette sales.
Dr. Park W. Willis III, direc-
tor of the cardiology division,
says the ban, "will demonstrate
to our guests students, and the
public that in the opinion of
our staff the cigarette habit is
a serious health hazard which
should not be encouraged in any
way by a health-oriented com-
munity hospital."

"Sixty-five peg cent of thos
sales are cigarettes," he says.
This revenue loss, about 1300
packs of cigarettes a day, may
