(Continued from Page 1)
riculum committee voted to re-
consider and possibly reverse the
decision approving the course
which was passed by the Course
Mart committee in late December.
The committee is a subset of
the LSA curriculum committee
and first reviews all proposed
Course Mart courses.
It makes decisions and grants
credit to most courses, referring to
the curriculum committee only
those which it determines are of
an especially complex nature.
College Course 327 was ap-
proved enthusiastically by the
course mart committee, according
to Economics Prof. Locke Ander-
son, chairman of the curriculum
committee.
But, said Anderson, "it was
brought to our attention yester-
day that there are fairly substan-
tial discrepancies between the ads
for the course and what was ap-
proved by the course mart com-t
mittee."
The general tone of the pro-
posal has been distorted in the ad
in an effort to attract a large
number of students," he ex-'
plained, "We are puzzled' about
this since we were under the im-
pression that it ii usually more
desirable to teach a small number
of students rather than a large
number."
Anderson cited three main dis-j
crepancies betweens th descrip-
tinof the course as it appeared
in the original proposal and as it
appeared in The Daily and hand-
outs.
"The title of the course as it ap-
pears in The Daily is inaccurate,"
Anderson said. "It is called 'new
course in political action' while in
the proposal it is titled 'issues,
strategies and analysis in politicalI
action'." This could be mislead-
ing."
"There is also a discrepancy in
the wording about sections," he
continued. "In the proposal they
are spoken of as 'work-study' sec-
tions, but in the ads they are
called 'study-action' sections."

AFSCME negotiations continue

In addition, the faculty asked
the Regents to keep an equal
number of students and faculty
members as associate judges for
the latter six months of the ex-
periment, instead of a 2-1 com-
positiontfavoring the defendant's
constituency.
Noting that a three-member
panel of associate judges could
overrule the presiding judge by a
majority vote, the faculty stated
that this "permits the defendant's
constituency to indefinitely delay
the proceedings."
ThetLSA facultyalso suggested
that the jury decide guilt and!
punishment by a majority vote of
the six jurors, rather than unani-
mously, as called for by the com-
mittee which proposed the judicial
system.
While the Faculty Reform Coa-
lition's resolution indicated that
the organization preferred a jury
composed of three students and
three faculty members in all
cases, it stated that the proposec
judiciary would be acceptable if it
met the objections raised by the
LSA faculty.

University undergoes a prolonged
shut-down.
It has been suggested that the
University could either take time
from spring vacation, due to run
from Feb. 27 to March 8, or ex-
tend the length of the term past
the current end date of April 16.
It appears that while the union
will reduce the number of em-
ployes working at University Hos-
pital, it would under no circum-
stances attempt a complete shut-
down of the hospital.
Though AFSCME employes
drive University buses, bus service
around the campus will apparent-
ly be maintained though on a

limited basis. A reliable source
says 21 out of 27 student bus
drivers have signed a petition
stating that they will continue to
drive in the event of a strike.
The effects of the strike may,
even extend as far as the Uni-
versity's Willow Run airport,
where fire-fighters are AFSCME
members.
If this occurs, the Ypsilanti
fire-fighter's union has indicatedI
they would not respond to first
call fire alarms, or resort to
"strike breaking tactics."
