on recruiting
At their monthly meeting today and tomorrow, the
Regents will discuss two on-going controversies within the
academic community-the proposed University judiciary and
the University's policy on recruiting by corporations charged
with discrimination.
The recruiting policy will be the subject of an open
hearing at 4 p.m. today in the Regents room of the Adminis-
tration Bldg. The Regents expect to take final action today
on the Office of Student Services (OSS) decision to ban
companies which have dealings in South Africa from OSS
recruiting offices.
At a mass meeting last Sunday, called by an ad hoc
- radical group on campus, stu-
dents were urged to attend the
U tu en t open hearing and to "harass"
the Regents in support of six
anti-war demands.
