Senate Assembly
adds expulsion rule

(Continued from Page 1)
night's meeting was attended by an
overflow crowd of about 375 per-
sons, most of whom were present
to hear the discussion of classified
and war research, which followed
the rules discussion.
The expulsion clause, proposed
by communications and computer
sciences Prof. Bernard Galler,
added expulsion as a possible sanc-
tion for "anyone convicted of a
felony for an offense which is re-
cognizable as a serious violation
of any UC rule," and wherever the
sanction of exclusion has been
listed as a possible penalty.
Exclusion is defined as a "tem-
porary separation from the Uni-
versity," whereas expulsion is de-
fined in Galer's motion as a "per-
manent separation from the Uni-
versity."
The debate on the expulsion
clause encompassed the contention
of public health Prof. Raymond
Kahn, a member of both Senate
Assembly and UC, that expulsion
is a sanction of "vengeance" rath-
er thanthe deterrent for which
the UC rules were formulated.
During, the debate, Galler and
others clarified expulsion as an
"indefinite separation from the
University," rather than the per-
manent separation implied in the
amendment.
Another major change in the pro-
posed rules was made when Senate
Assembly amended the section of
"forbidden .occupation," which car-
ries with it the possible sanctions
of warning, censure, fine of not
more than $50, work assignment,
or any combination of these.
The forbidden occupation section
originally said that no faculty
member, administrator, or student,
after a warning of at least one half
court rules

support
NEW YORK (A') - An appeals
court ruled yesterday that a 20-
year-old college girl who refuses to
live at home cannot demand that
her lawyer father support her at
school in Kentucky.
"She cannot expect to have her
cake and eat it, too," said the
opinion of the appellate division of
State Supreme Court in a 4-1 de-
cision.
The appeals court decision re-
versed a ruling by Family Court
Judge Millard Midonick which, if
it had stood, could have sent the
fatier to jail for 30 days for non-
support of his daughter. The judge
said the father had branded his
daughter a "hippie" when he re-
fused her support.
The names of the father, a promi-
nent New York attorney, and the
girl, a student at the University
of Louisville, were not disclosed
in court papers.
The appeals court noted that un-
til last May, the father paid for
the girl's schooling in Kentucky,
gave her an allowance, provided
her with an automobile and paid
for nose surgery.
He wanted her to live in the uni-
versity dormitory, but when he dis-
covered she had moved out of the
dormitory and in with a girl friend,
he cut off the money.
The father then said' he would
support his daughter only if she
came back to New York, lived at
home, and attended school here.
The girl came to New York, but
to file a court action-against her
father demanding that he pay her
college bills.
Judge Midonick, in ruling that

the father must pay $250 a month
support of his daughter until she
reached 21, plus three semesters
of school tuition, said the girl,
whose mother is dead, had been
'emotionally put down by her
father."

hour by the University's president
or his designee "continue occupa-
tion of any University facility if
such occupation creates a substan-
tial risk of interference with a sig-
nificant University function or a
substantial risk of injury to per-
sons or property."
The amended section omits the
qualifying clauses after the word
"facility," thereby classifying any
occupation of a University facility
after a presidential warning as il-
legal.
According to law Prof. Theodore
St. Antoine, chairman of UC and
also a member of Assembly, the
qualifying clause was included spe-
cifically to allow "peaceful, non-
destructive sit-ins "where perhaps
the only interference with normal
University functions is that a jani-
tor is "prevented from making aj
-clean sweep of one hall on that
particular night."
The example stems from the LSA
Bldg. bookstore sit-in of Sept.,
1969, where 107 students were ar-
rested for contention and many
were convicted in District Court'
after evidence was given that jani-
tors had been prevented from doing°
their work.
St. Antoine asserted that a peace-
ful, non-destructive sit-in to draw
attention to an issue is legitimate,
a point disputed by several other
Senate Assembly members.
Others supporting the amend-
ment to strike the qualifying
clauses argued that classifying
some occupations as illegal is es-#
sential as a security precautiont
and deterrent to the destructive
actions which could stem from a1
sit-in.#
Workers at
EMU striket
Special To The Daily
YPSILANTI - About 30 mainte-
nance workers at Eastern Michi-
gan University (EMU) left their
jobs briefly yesterday morning in-
protest of the three-day suspensionl
of Floyd Kersey, their union localt
president.
Kersey was suspended for al-t
legedly taking .an unauthorized day
of absence to attend a meeting of
the American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employes,
(AFSCME) which represents 700
service and maintenance employes
at EMU.
Kersey said yesterday, however,
that he informed the university in
advance of his absence, a proce-
due which is permitted under the
terms of the contract between
AFSCME Local 1666 and EMU.
A university spokesman said that
such absences must be requested
in writing and that Kersey had in-,
formed his supervisor only by tele-
phone.

however, that present University
policies proved ineffective in pre-
venting research which enhances
weapons systems used by the mil-
itary. Chudwin said that classified
research was causing the deaths
of people in Indochina, and was
therefore in violation of the prin-;
ciples of a university.
Speaking on the argument that
faculty members should have the
f r e e d o m to conduct research
which might be classified, Chud-
win said that the freedom of the
rest of the academic community
to know what research was being
undertaken was paramount.
Other speakers arguing against
the continuation of military and
classified research included Jerry
De Grieck, executive vice president
of SGC, history Prof. Raymond
Grew, who spoke as a representa-
tive of the fast by faculty mem-
bers protesting such research, and
a member of Brain Mistrust, a
radical research group.

COMMUNIST PRESSURE CITED:
S. Viet troops forced
to retreat from Laos

(Continued from Page 1)
forces continued a second opera-
tion against communist supply
lines. The U.S. Command said
nearly 300 helicopter sorties were
flown Monday in support of the
Cambodian operation. There also
were 90 tactical fighter - bomber
strikes.
Meanwhile, Secretary of State
William Rogers said yesterday that
possible offshore oil deposits in
the Vietnam area have "absolutely
no effect on U.S. policy" in Indo-
china.
In a letter the State Department
said "prospects are good" that oil
deposits exist in the Vietnam area
-particularly in the Gulf of Thai-
land-but are not now being
tapped.
The letter replied to a series of
questions on offshore oil activities
in Indochina posed by Sen. J. W.
Fulbright (D-Ark), chairman of
the Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee.
There are no oil refineries in
Vietnam, Fulbright was told.
Consequently, the oil distribut-
ing companies there, Shell, Caltex
and Esso, supply Vietnam from re-
fineries in the Persian Gulf and
Singapore.
Of the two American oil com-
panies with offices in Vietnam,
Caltex and Esso, only Esso has
expressed an interest in Vietnam's
offshore oil potential, a spokesman
said.
Secretary of Defense Melvin

Laird said yesterday the Nixon
administration "is committed" to
withdrawing an average of 12,500
troops a month from Vietnam, and
indicated less than 50,000 would1
remain by the end of 1972.
"The President has told the
American public that we will con-
tinue on that average, rate, and
the average rate is 3,000 weekly, or
12,500 a month," Laird said.
"We will continue that rate" and
possibly increase it substantially:
later this year depending on the+
success of the U.S.-backed South
Vietnamese drive in Laos," he said
during an interview on CBS News.,

Listen for
the sounds
of love...
Where do you hear them?
In a plea for help from
someone who needs it? In a
dialogue between students and
the Establishment? In a talk
session for a marriage-on-the-
rocks? At a Catholic Mass
conducted in an Episcopal
Church?
You'd be surprised.
The sounds of love are
everywhere -- anyone can
hear them.If they listen.
The Paulists listen. But,
like everything in life, the
things that matter most are
the hardest.
It isn't easy being a Paulist.
But then, the best things in
life never are.

St. Vincent de Paul was a Christ-like priest, a warm-hearted man
with' unbounded love for his fellow man, especially the poor, the
sick, the oppressed and the neglected. His life was spent ministering
to their needs. He preached to them, taught them, fed them and
even begged for them. Like Christ, he came not to be served but
to serve.
Today the Vincentians, the sons of St. Vincent, carry on his work.
As a Vincentian, you can ease the misery of the poor and the suf-
fering of the sick. They counsel the troubled -and the oppressed.
They teach the young and console the old and enlighten men of all
ages. They try to meet the needs of the Church wherever they exist.
The Vincentians serve.
