Groups blast
Uprogram
with HEW
By TAMMY JACOBS
Members of several women's groups yesterday heavily
criticized the agreement between the University and the De-
partment of Health, Education and Welfare on an affirmative
action program to promote equal employment opportunities
for women.
Although some women had specific complaints about the
University plan which ended the three-month dispute be-
tween HEW and the University, most of the women contacted
expressed the feeling that the plan "looks good on paper,"
" but they were skeptical about end results.
The dispute arose on Oct. 6 when HEW charged the Uni-
versity with discriminatory practices toward women and de-

Grad fine
*$100 for
disruption
By GERI SPRUNG
The executive board of the grad-
uate school has announced it
accepts the finding of its board of
inquiry that Peter Denton, grad,
is guilty of classroomedisruption.
The board imposed a fine of
$100 as was recommended by the
board of inquiry.
In addition, the executive board
ordered that "Denton be notified
that any further infraction of any
University or graduate school rule
involving disruption or physical
interference with others in the
University will be grounds for ex-'
pulsion."
Denton said yesterday the ac-
tions taken by the executive board
were "just what I expected."
"The University is trying to in-
timidate people from doing the
same thing in the future," he
added.

Since then, according to an in-
formed source, at least $3,924,000
in contracts had been withheld
from the University. The contract
ban was lifted as of the agree-
ment last week.
The University plan includes a
commitment by the University to
pay back wages retroactive to any
woman paid less than male em-
ployes in comparable job cate-
gories.
In a statement released yester-
day, a local group, PROBE into
the Status of Women at The Uni-
versity of Michigan, expressed dis-
satisfaction withathe University
plan. PROBE is a coalition task

researching the conditions of wo-

the University and HEW is HEW's

By JONATHAN MILLER
Washtenaw County Sheriff
Douglas Harvey claims he
presently employs undercover
agents for the surveillance of
students at both the Univer-
sity and Eastern Michigan
University.
It was also learned yesterday
that the sheriff has electronic
surveillance equipment, including
two television units, which are.
available for campus use.
Harvey told a Detroit Free Press
reporier of the existence of under-
cover agents on the two campuses
yesterday afternoon, but declined
last night to confirm or deny his
earlier statement.
"We will continue as we have
always had, with undercover men
on both univ~ersity campuses," he
is quoted in today's Free Press.
Harvey said yesterday he will
probably infiltrate agents into
militant students groups, such as
Students for Democratic Society,
if a grant proposal for federal
funds to be presented tomorrow
to the Washtenaw County Law
and Justice Planning Board, is
approved.
Although a highly reliable source
in city hall said that Harvey
wants the money to buy electronic
wiretapping and bugging devices,
the Free Press quotes the sheriff
as saying, "We don't have to buy
it, we already have it."
The Free Press says Harvey
wants the money to be spent n-
stead on other equipment, such as
radios and cars.
Harvey also said yesterday that
Col. Frederick Davis, director of
safety at the University, had as-
sured his cooperation with the
"intelligence squad," proposed by
Harvey at a meeting with Under-
sheriff Harold Owings.
The proposed squad w o u I d
focus its attention, Harvey had
stated, on organized and syndi-
cated crime and narcotics as well
as student unrest, civil disorders
and union strikes.
Although Col. Davis is out of
town and has not been available
for comment, James Brinkerhoff,
Director of Business Operations at
the University had said Tuesday

SGC blasts Harvey
on survellance plans
By ROSE SUE BERSTEIN
Student Government Council last night condemned Wash-
tenaw County Sheriff Douglas Harvey's request for federal
funds to build up an "Intelligence Squad."
The request for political surveillance of University stu-
dents, Council stated, is opposed to "the objectives and prac-
tices of a free society."
"People in the county must seriously look at what Sher-
iff Harvey is doing," said SGC Executive Vice President Jerry
DeGrieck. "Under the guise of fighting organized crire and
violence he is attempting to set up, with federal funds, a
surveillance system to be used against students and workers
and other political threats. O

In addition to the original argu-

how state funds are spent in the

"internal" questions.
Among those restrictions were:

PRODUCT OF STUDENT PRESSURE
'U' Cellar begins sale of discount books

By CHUCK WILBUR
The University Cellar, the student-controlled
University bookstore, has begun buying and selling
tex books this week.
The Cellar, located on the ground floor of the
Michigan Union, opened in the fall, selling sup-
plies, posters, and records. Organizational prob-
lems, according to spokesmen, prevented the store
from offering textbooks until this term.

Most other items are discounted by 15 per cent,
with records sold at one-third discount.
According to University Cellar manager, Den-
nis Webster, student patronage of the store has
been good.
"Reception has been better all along the line
than we had anticipated," Webster said, adding
that the Cellar has had trouble keeping certain
items in stock due to the great student demand.
