stead, an a la carte program would be instituted which would

Judiciary committee
completes final draft
Completing nine months of deliberations, the Committee
on a Permanent Judiciary (COPJ) last night agreed on the
text of a manual giving detailed procedures for its proposed
campus judicial system.
The manual of procedure and a final text of the proposed
bylaw on disciplinary procedures will be sent to the Regents
later this week. They are expected to meet with committee
members at a special meeting to consider the plan but will
not formally vote on it until their regular February session.

student jury, in cases where

In eliminating breakfast, 26 full-
time employes would have to be
laid off. Concerned that all these
employes might not be able to be
placed in other University jobs,
the board decided that non-stu-
dent workers would be hired be-
fore students to man the a la
carte lines.
To further guarantee that all
workers laid off could still find
employment, the board included in
the rate increase $5 per student
as funds to cover jobs that might
be created for these workers.
Along with the elimination of
breakfast, the board approved sev-
eral measures designed to cut stu-.
dent costs. Maid service was elimi-
nated from the resident director's
apartments and less expensive
china will be purchased in the
The board further decided that
food service would be eliminated
from Newberry altogether and
that Barbour's facilities would be
enlarged to also serve the women
in Newberry.
In conjunction with this deci-
sion the board had recommended
last week that Barbour, which is
now primarily an upperclass and
graduate women's dorm, be opened
to all classes. After receiving
strong objection to this move by
the residents of Barbour the board
decided to continue Barbour's sta-
tus as an upperclass dorm.
Other policies the board de-
cided to continue were providing
optional meal contracts for non-
residence hall students, continuing
the $100 application-deposit fee,
and not allowing students to break
their dorm contract in order to
move into either a fraternity or
Tom eet the need for increased
student housing, the board has
recommended that Lloyd and
Winchell Houses in West Quad,
currently faculty offices, be re-
converted into student occupancy.
Recognizing the continued press
on the funds available for educa-
tional staff, the board has formed
a committee composed of two res-
idence hall staff, two representa-
tives selected from Inter-House
Assembly and two representatives
from the board to recommend
educational staffing philosophy
and allocate funds each year.
T h e s e recommendations were
based on a report submitted by
the Resident Hall Rate Commit-
tee. The committee, composed of
two members of Student Advisory
Committee on Housing, two ::ep-
resentatives of Inter-House As-
sembly and two members of the
housing office, spent s e v e r a)l'
months studying the problem of
dorm financing.
The Housing Policy Board,
composed of eight students and
three faculty members, directs the
policy of the Housing Office. All'
actions taken by the board are
subject to review by the Office of
Student Services Policy Board and;
approval by the Regents.

WASHINGTON (A') -- Senate
Democratic Leader Mike Mans-
field said last night the No. 1 U.S.
goal in the next two years should
be to get out of Indochina and to
withdraw troops from Europe.
"The time has come to work
harder to get the President to
specify a withdrawal schedule for
troops from all of Indochina-

said in a broadcast interview.
"We should hold hearings, lay
out the story and bring the situa-
tion to the attention of the peo-

Speaking for the Democratic
party, the Montana senator was
interviewed by reporters from four
networks on a national television
program billed as "A Conversation

The interview was broadcast live
over the National Education Tele-
vision network stations and taped
for release over Mutual Radio and
NBC, CBS and ABC television.
Mansfield said he will introduce
a resolution calling for withdrawal
of substantial numbers of U.S.
troops from Europe. He said about
half the U.S. troops should be
brought back and European na-
tions should be encouraged to pro-
tect themselves.
The interview was not billed as
a Democratic reply to President
Nixon's State of the Union mes-
sage Friday night, but Mansfield
was questioned about sweeping
legislative proposals recommended
by the administration.
He agreed with Nixon that there
are too many federal agencies "top

ity system in Congress, saying it
has "worked remarkably well" over
the years. Committee chairmen
are chosen on a seniority basis.
However, he said, it might be
well to overhaul the system by set-
ting age limits for senators.

that Speaker of the House Carl
