Judiciary
plan hit by
law school,
Profs criticize
student, faculty
associate judges
By KRISTIN RINGSTROM
and ROBERT KRAFTOWITZ
The faculty of the law
school yesterday u r g e d the
Regents to reject the proposed
University judicial system, cri-
ticizing the plan for suggest-'
ing that students and faculty
members be allowed to over-
rule decisions of the judge at
disciplinary trials.
While the faculty expressed ap-
proval of the plan's provision that
an all-student jury determine
guilt and punishment when stu-j
dents are tried before the new
judiciary, it said it would only en-
dorse a judiciary in which trials
were "presided over by a single,,
legally-trained judge."i
The judiciary plan, drafted byI
a committee of students, faculty
members, and administrators, pro-
poses that the judge be joined by
student and faculty associate
judges in a panel which would
preside over all trials in the pro-
poged court system.
Since the panel would have the
power to rule on motions by either
the plaintiff or the defendant, it
would have to decide suchtsensi-
tive questions as whether to pro-
hibit testimony which aims at es-
tablishing a political basis for the
defendant's alleged actions or
whether -to bar people from thea
courtroom who interrupt the pro-_
ceedings.
The presiding judge, who would,
have considerable legal training
and be selected from outside the
University c o m m u n i t y, would
make initial rulings, which could
be overruled by the associate
judges.
The criticisms levied by law
school faculty members at the use
of associate judges included:

Progress was made in the negotiations between the
University and Local 1583 of the American Federation of
State, County, and Municipal Employes (AFSCME) last night
as six out of approximately 16 remaining issues were settled.
However, negotiators would not reveal which issues were
resolved as settlement was only tentative.
"If we can continue to move like this," union official Joe
King said, "we can wind things up by Monday."

WNRZ DJ's fire
chairge political bias
By JONATHAN MILLER
The firing without notice- of two free-form disc-jockeys
by a local radio station yesterday brought charges last night
that the firings were politically motivated and constituted
"an attack on the life culture in Ann Arbor."
Richard Hill, station manager of WNRZ-FM; said yester-
day the firings were for "economic reasons."
Larry Monroe, one of the disc-jockeys, said last night,
"We got fired because we have some definite ideas about
radio which don't agree with those of the station manager."

WASHINGTON MP)-The Army,
hard put to fill its manpower
needs for the Vietnam war, has
found that not one of its divisions
outside Vietnam is rated fully

Army sources said yesterday
that lower than anticipated draft

was "effective immediately," and
that their previous night's pro-

Hill explained the abrupt nature
of the firings as "not uncommon

boys two weeks pay, generally
speaking," when they are dismiss-

Hill said the station, which has
hitherto broadcast a top-40 for-

free form radio from 9 p.m. until
6 a.m., will adopt a new format
for its day-time programming.

A union leaflet reported yester-
day that the University's wage
offer averaged 16.2 cents an hour
across-the-board increase for the
first year, and 16.4 cents an hour
increase the second year, with
some union members receiving no
increase.
University officials have de-
clined to comment on the details
of their proposal.
Union officials would not re-
lease the specifics of their revised
proposal, claiming only that it
provided larger wage increases for
those in lower pay scales. At a
membership meeting last Satur-
day, however, union leaders said
they would initially ask for a $2.80
an hour increase over three years
or $2 over two years.
Four other issues which remain-
ed unresolved as of yesterday
were:
-Limiting the amount of work
usually done by union members,
that supervisory workers can do.,
The current contract states that
supervisory work "will only sup-
plement" and "not result in the
displacement of any employe nor
in the loss of wages." The union"
hopes to limit the amount of bar-
gaining unit work a supervisor can
do to 20 per cent weekly under
the new contract;
-Extending the rights of em-
ployes so that they may grieve
University rules, regulations and
policies. Currently, employes may
only grieve contract violations,
not overall University policies;
-Letting the union questionj
supervisory employes for informa-
tion concerning grievance hear-
ings. Presently, the union is only
allowedrto talk to union members
to get evidence for hearings when
an employe has filed a grievance;
and
-Preventing the University from

were in civilian clothes at t h e
time.
Watson had been on the force
since July 1967, and Wortmann
joined in July 1968.
Two armed men surrendered to
officers minutes after the shooting
incident and were being question-
ed yesterday. The two are broth-
ers-Patrick Edwards, 30, and Al-
bert Jurich, 22. Edwards surname
originally was Jurich, police said,
but he had changed it legally.
Police said Edwards had a ;38-
caliber pistol and Jurich a .45-
caliber semi-automatic rifle when
they were arrested.
Witnesses told investigators that
the argument broke out between
the policemen and the two broth-
ers around the corner from a party
store Edwards operates.
Detective Sgt. John Faulman of
the Homicide Bureau said the two
officers had left the Fourth Pre-
cinct at 4 p.m. to go bowling. Ed-
wards and a young woman had
left the party store at 11:25 p.m.,
he said.
Edwards told investigators he
carried a registered pistol because
the previous operator of the store
had been shot to death in a rob-
bery last February, and he and
his brother had been robbed last
month.
The woman, who was not iden-
tified, told a Detroit News are-
porter that as she and Edwards
left the store, a car with two men
in civilian clothes passed by, and
the passenger yelled obscene re-
marks at them.
She told the reporter the car
apparently circled the block and
pulled up in front of the apart-
ment building where Edwards liv-
ed.
An argument followed, she add-
ed, and the men in the car got
out and all three drew t h e i r
guns.

Student advice improves menus

By JOHN MITCHELL
"I was enjoying the fish sandwiches to-
day until I happened to look at it. Instead
of regular looking fish, it was grayish-green.
Needless to say, I didn', finish it."
Such criticism is one of the suggestions
submitted by dorm residents into "cafeteria
feedback boxes" - devices which allow resi-
dents to air their views on the food system.
The feedback program, initiated sporad-
ically in past years by individual dorms and
strongly recommended this year by Univer-
sity food service manager Lynford Tubbs,
seeks to provide an effective mechanism
through which dieticians and food manag-

times of meals have been the primary result
of student suggestions.
Despite an occasional obscene or threat-
ening suggestion, Hodges believes that the
bulk of the submitted comments are "very
polite and helpful" and adds "if we can af-
ford improvements, why not?"
Rosa Davis, chief dietitian at West Quad,
has noticed a general trend among many
students toward more "health foods" an d
yogurt.
"Many students are worried about chol s-
terol," she said, "and they have been asking
for an alternative to eggs and white rice."
But, she adds, "freeloading, meal sharing,
