Delays action on
student group
recognition plan
The policy board of the Of-
fice of Student Services 1 a s t
night discussed student hous-
ing, University recognition of
student organizations, and
corporate recruiters on cam-
pus, but no formal action was
taken at the meeting.
The board appeared to be in
agreement on establishing a pol-
'icy--setting board for the Office of
University Housing along the lines
of the OSS board itself. The Stu-
dent Advisory Committee on Uni-
versity Housing presently advises
the director of the office, but it
does not have policy-making

of the problems of his office say-

program for the greatest need in
housing. This need is for central

#Feldkamp said.

Bardach criticized the University
for being "woefully lacking in long
range planing for housing." He
said the University should reor-

The policy board also discussed
the possibility of the University
assisting the Inter-Cooperative
Council (ICC) in buying up vacant
fraternities and sororities. Mem-
bers of the board said the Uni-
1 versity had the money to help
ICC and this expenditure would be
a relatively inexpensive way to
improve the housing market in
Ann Arbor.
The board mentioned the ques-
tion of University recognition of
student organizations, but put off
full discussion of the issue until
next week to allow members time
to study the problem.

The Marines, with 545 men dis-
charge'd during the first six
months of this year, have a better
record proportionately than the
Navy, which has had 2,895 dis-
charges for drug reasons. The
Navy's manpower is two and one-
half to three times larger than
the Marine Corps.
Brig. Gen. R. B. Carney Jr. told
the subcommittee the Marine
Corps has no medical rehabilita-
tion program and does not plan
to establish one. Marines involved
in illegal drug use are either ad-
ministratively discharged or court-
martialed, he said.
"The statistical data available
concerning the treatment and re-
habilitation of narcotic and dan-
gerous drug users is not impres-

He said the more successful re-
habilitative programs take up to
two years and the Marine Corps
is not funded or supported to the
extent necessary to assume such a
"The manpower of both the re-
habilitees and the rehabilitors
would be lost for our primary mili-
tary missions," Carney explained.
Rear Adm. S. H. Kinney told the
panel the Navy is more inclined
than the Marines to make efforts
to rehabilitate its drug users. He
said the Navy was successful with
about 97 per cent of the 2,000 psy-
chological rehabilitations it at-
tempted in the past year.

A committee struggling to formulate a new University
judicial system appeared last night to be near agreement-on
a method of determining procedural rulings in trials, the
last major stumbling block in its effort to develop new campus
legal procedures.
The committee proposal provides for an outside legal
expert to decide procedural questions such as admissibility
of evidence. The expert, however, could be overruled by a
three member panel that would include two students and one
faculty member for student trials.
This proposal, which will be put on paper by a drafting
committee this week, is a compromise between regental

'movin the middle'
"Moving the middle" as a means of political reform was
the major theme of a speech given by Jane Hart last night
in Hill Aud. Hart, the outspoken wife of Michigan Sen. Philip
Hart spoke before a crowd of about 300 in the first part of a
series that will bring Sen. GeorgeMcGovern (D-N.D.) and
former Att. Gen. Ramsey Clark to Ann Arbor to speak in
behalf of Hart's campaign for re-election.
While conceding that the "fringes" provide the leadership
for change, Hart emphasized that only with the support of
"middle America" can change be brought about. It was on
this basis that she she she opposed the "Amnesty Plank" of
the state party Platform. This plank tended to "antagonize"
the "middle" and therefore --

asks new
COLUMBUS, Ohio W) - The
Ohio National Guard, criticized by
a Presidential commission in con-
nection with the shooting deaths
of four Kent State University
students, has requested nonleth-
al weapons for use in future dis-
orders. However, the Guard plans
to continue to carry rifles and
load them on command.
Ohio Adj. Gen. Sylvester T. Del
Corso, commander of the O h i o
Guard, said yesterday Guardsmen
will continue the policy "to have
ammunition with them when call-
ed out and will load their weapons
on command of an officer."
"We do not want to kill anyone,
or even injure anyone. But the
trouble is there when we are call-
ed out, and we have to be prepar-
ed to do our job."
Del Corso said his office last
week asked the Department of the
Army to equip guard units across
the nation with short-range, non-
lethal weapons and protective
clothing for use in riot situations.
If the request is granted, he
said, the "-Ohio Guard would use
such weapons.
"But weswill not have a double
standard," he said. "We plan to
use these new weapons if we are
called into the streets, the same
as on the campuses . .. as far as
we're concerned, there is no dif-
ference between a disturbance on
campus and one in the city
streets ..
"And we will still have some
rifles. We're going to be prepared
in case someone starts shooting
at us."
Units of the Ohio Guard have
been called to active duty 33 times
in the past three years for civil
disorders. Nine of those call-ups
have come this year.
Under the Ohio Guard's recom-
mendation, Guardsmen would get
such weapons as multiple bator*
that fire wooden blocks, not
shotguns andadditional chemical
weapons. The Guard has a l1s0
recommended plastic face masks,
armored flak vests and shields
for use in riot duty.
The Ohio Guard already is
equipped with some shotguns,
plastic face masks and flak vests,
but does not have enough, accord-
ing to McCann. The Guard has nq
multiple batons or shields.
Del Corso said that, along with
nonlethal weapons, two riflemen
would be assigned to each 10-man
squad in riot duty. Other m e n
would carry shotguns, multiple
batons or tear gas grenade launch-

Defending the new program,
chairman of the Board of Com-
missioners O. Herbert Ellis said re-
presentatives of the county's poor
community had not been consult-
ed in drawing up the plan, but he
emphasized the program was still
in the formative stage and had
not yet been approved.
Although the board had not dis-
cussed the possibility of involving
the poor in the program's opera-
tions, Ellis said he was not op-
posed to the idea in principle and
the matter was open for discus-
George Stewart, director of
the Washtenaw County Legal Aid
Clinic, endorsed the program but
seconded Rowry's concern about
the possibility of a conflict of in-
terest between the defender's of-
fice and the county prosecutor.
It would be "a very bad idea,"
said Stewart, to have the defender
either elected or appointed by the
county commissioners. U n d e r
such conditions the defender would
be subjected to opposite pressures
from his client and the electorate
which might be more concerned
with law and order.
Stewart suggested the' commis-
sioners approve a non-profit cor-

The President also said his
statement will not be limited to
any of the particular subjects that
had been speculated on in the
news media "but will cover all of
the major issues that are involved
in the Southeast Asia area."
Among the topics speculated
upon recently have been an in-
crease in the n u m b e r of U.S.
troops that will be withdrawn.
"I would like to indicate that
we do not consider this to be a

said. "We are not saying it sim-

As an indication of the U.S. at-

ed the chief U.S. negotiator at
Paris, Ambassador David K. E.
Bruce, "to lay this proposal on
the table" at the next meeting
Thursday morning with repre-
sentatives of North Vietnam and
the Viet Cong.
Nixon said the statement had
been prepared "only after very

issues that are involved in our
negotiating position."

"Our fear was that in our zeal

Radical admits




TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (CPS) - A well-
known student radical at the University of
Alabama has admitted acting as an FBI
informer. One-time student Charles Grimm
made the admission after charges were
levelled against him by three attorneys who
are defending many of the students arrest-
ed during last May's student strike here.
"We feel that Charles Grimm w a s
nothing but a pawn of the Federal Bureau
of Investigazion and the City Police of Tus-
caloosa,' said George Dean, an American
Civil Liberties Union Lawyer. With asso-
ciates Jack Drake and Ralph Knowles,
Dean accused Grimm. a former University

violation. The second case was dismussed.
He and his wife, a former student named
Sharon Griney, left Tuscaloosa during the
summer and were not located until Sept.
25. Mrs. Grimm was arrested during the
May disorders also. She was charged with
siphoning gas from an automobile. Neither
of their cases have been tried, although
they were listed on the docket for August
In a statement made by Drake Sept. 30,
the attorneys alleged that Grimm had ad-
mitted being present when a fire at Dress-
ler Hall was started on the morning of
1ay 7. and had set fire to a nrivate resi-

during the disorders. Grimm also admitted
being an undercover agent whose d u t i e s
were "to criticize the university adminis-
tration for repressive action" While trying
to learn the identity of agitators.
In the statement Sept. 30, the lawyers
said Grimm told the three that his roles
were *to infiltrate the student movement
on campus, to identify the leaders of that
movement, to engage in radical criticism
of University officials (in order to gain the
confidence of other students), to encourage
conflict and division within the University
community, to provoke students into com-
