'CAN'T COMPETE':
Cellar forces
SBS cutback
By W. E. SCHROCK
Student Book Service (SBS) will soon stop selling text-
books, a move which the private bookstore's manager attri-
butes primarily to the initial success of the new University
discount bookstore, the University Cellar.
According to Dick Klausner, a book buyer at SBS, "The
Cellar's eftec has been critical" to the operation of SBS,
located on South University Ave. between Church St. and
S. Forest Ave. "We pretty much anticipated the end of text
book sales," Klausner said yesterday.
Meanwhile, owners and managers of the other private
campus bookstores declined to estimate the effect of the
Cellar's discount textbook sales on their volume of business.

TO SUPERVISE HIRING PLAN:

r

By JONATHAN MILLER
President Robben Fleming
said yesterday that he is op-
posed to Washtenaw County
Sheriff Douglas Harvey's pro-
posal for a special police unit
to conduct surveillance of po-
litical figures on campus.
Harvey plans to apply today for
federal funding for the "Intelli-
gence Squad." which will, accord-
ing to his proposal, investigate or-
ganized and syndicated crime, lo-
cal traffic in illegal drugs, and
people involved in "civil disord-
ers, campus unrest. and u n i o n
strikes." The squad would cover
both the University, and Eastern
Michigan University.
In a statement, Fleming s a i d
that he would "write to the people
concerned." with funding Harvey's
proposal to advise them of the
University's opposition.
Reacting to Fleming's statement,
Harvey said last night, "I don't
care if we get the grant or not,
if I want to operate on that
campus I'll go ahead and do so."
He added that it was Fleming's
prerogative to write letters a n d
make statements, but declined fur-
ther comment.
In his statement, Fleming said,
"a free society must always ap-
proach with reluctance a system
which calls upon its members to
spy on one another." He warned of
the "abuses of surveillance tech-
niques on some campuses."
However, the president added
that "there are times when sur-
veillance may seem necessary, but
if this is to be so on our campus
we believe it should come through
the normal relationship between
the campus and the city police."
Fleming declined last night to
specify the occasions such surveil-
lance might be necessary. He also
declined to comment on Harvey's
claim Wedneslay that he has
agents already operating at the
University.
Members of the University's se-
curity staff, including Safety Di-
rector Frederick Davids, have de-
cided to cooperate only with the
Ann Arbor police, not the Intelli-
gence Squad", according to Flem-
in's statement.
Harvey had said . Wednesday
that Davids had assured coopera-
tion with the proposed squad at a
meeting with Undersheriff Harold
Owings. "last week or the w e e k
before."
However, Davids said yesterday
that he "did not attend such a
meeting, I haven't met with Un-
dersheriff Owings or anybody
from the sheriff's department on
this."
When Harvey was told that
Davids had denied having attend-
ed such a meeting with Owings. he
retracted his previous statement.
John Hayes, chief of the EMU
police said yesterday that Owings'
had approached him about t h e
squad, in which he agreed to par-
ticipate.~
However, Hayes said he was not
aware of the provisions in t h e
proposals for the political surveil-
lance of the EMU campus, main-
taining that the squad had been

The appointment of 12 people

established to aid in the achieve-

announced yesterday by PresidentI
Robben Fleming.
The commission, consisting of
ten women and two men, will be

student affairs. The advisory group;
was established as part of the Uni-{
versity's affirmative action plan
for ending discrimination againstI
women in employment, submitted!
to the Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare last month.
Fleming, who appointed the
commission members, has asked'
the body to review the University's
affirmative action program, and to

examine University policies, pro-
cedures, and practices which may
discriminate against women.
Specifically, the commission has
been asked to work with Univer-

ployment practices which are
shown to discriminate against wo-
men;
-Encourage the development of
recruiting practices which w il1
open job opportunities to women;
-Educate employment units
about the availability and suita-
bility of women for employment at
all levels; and

The recently formed radical political party held an or-
ganizational meeting last night in preparation for its upcom-
ing convention Jan. 22-24.
The 70 people attending the meeting were addressed by
members of the party's temporary steering committee, who
reiterated the party's plans to participate in the upcoming
city elections. They stressed, however, that they would seek
to remain a permanent political force in Ann Arbor.
The steering committee members discussed the problems
the party was having getting a place on the April city ballot.

first meeting of term,
action on conference

According to one member, a ser-
ies of special workshops will be{
held on Jan. 28 between coun-
selors of University students, and
members of GLF to discuss meth-
ods of counseling homosexuals.
Speaking at the meeting, Peter
Denton, a member of the recent-
ly-organized radical political par-
ty in Ann Arbor, called on GLF
members to help the party draw
up part of its platform on sexism.
Denton also asked GLF mem-
bers to participate in the teach-
ing of a section of a new Course
Mart course entitled Issues, Stra-
tegy, and Tactics for Political Ac-
tion. The meeting participants
present decided to leave the pro-
posal up to individual members.
The proposed midwestern con-
ference on homosexuality has been
blocked by President Robben
Fleming's denial of University f a-
cilities for the conference, because
he did not consider the purpose of
the conference educational.
Late last term, the Office of
Student Services Policy B o a r d
called upon the Regents not to
make educational value a criter-
ion for determining whether to
allow University facilities to be
used by organizations.
That viewpoint will be present-a
ed to the Regents by Vice Presi-
dent for Student Services Robert
Knauss at one of their next two
meetings.
Several participants in the
meeting suggested that the pro-
posed conference be made na-

According to state laws and
the Ann Arbor City Charter,
the party must obtain a peti-
tion with signatures equaling
one per cent of the votes cast
for the most recent secretary
of state election. In addition,
the signatures must be col-
lected in each of ten counties
throughout the state.
It was announced at last night's
meeting that Dave Goldstein, the
party's legal advisor, had pro-
posed an amendment to the CityE
Charter which would make the
one per cent figure applicable only
to the voters in the last city elec-
tion, and would allow the signa-
tures to be obtained in Ann Arbor
only.
The amendment will be intro-
duced at a meeting of City Coun-
cil before Feb. 5.
The participants in last night's
meeting broke up into several
workshops, which discussed pro-
grams for publicity, finance, re-
search on information to be used
in campaigns.

of arvard U.
Harvard Law School Dean Derek
Bok will be named president of
Harvard University, according to
a report yesterday in the Harvard
Independent, the university's stu-
dent newspaper. President Rob-
ben Fleming had been included
on a final list of candidates for
the job.
Although there has been no of-
ficial confirmation of the appoint-
ment, by either Bok or members
of the administration, a spokes-
man for the Independent s a i d
yesterday they had received "suf-
ficient confirmation from some-
one involved in the decision-mak-
ing process."

which it cannot do because it has
thus far been unable to meet.
At the start of the meeting, the
activities of other chapters of the
GLF all over the country were dis-
cussed. Several members had visit-
ed cities in different parts of the
country over the winter vacation,
and briefed the members present
about collectives, community cen-l
ters and social actiivties of GLF
members in the other chapters.

Besides Newell, the commission
includes Gwendolyn Baker, an ed
school lecturer, Jean Campbell,'
director of the Center for the Con-
tinuing Education of Women,

Paul Brown: Cautious, moderate

k ' The election of two Democratic regents
