The Regents Interim Rule and'
Disciplinary Procedures place the
judicial power in most non-aca-
demic cases in the hands of a
hearing officer appointed by Pres-
ident Robben Fleming.
Currently, a committee com-
posed of students, faculty mem-
bers, administrators, and Regents
is formulating a proposal for
permanent University-wide judi-
cial procedures.
Its final proposal is expected to
provide for the use of an all-stu-
dent jury in cases where the de-
fendant is a student.
The board hearing the Denton
case is the graduate school Board
of Inquiry, composed of three fac-
ulty members and two students.
The faculty members were ap-
pointed by the school's Executive
Board, and the student members,
were appointed by. Graduate As-

for students in the school.
The committee was formed in
March, after the disruption'char-

Denton maintained that under
the graduate school's rules, the

Yesterday's action was a con-

a numberofcdemonstrations in
support of the campaign, and em-

However, SDS members say they
are trying to "work within the
system" initially in their current
drive because of charges last year
that SDS never presented formal
complaints against specific re-
cruiters, so that the University
would have an opportunity to re-
act to them.
The organization has not ruled
out the use of stronger tactics
should the recruiter be allowed to
hold job interviews on campus.
On Oct. 1, SDS members at-
tempted to demonstrate against a
recruiter ,from the Air Force, but
the protest was cancelled when
the recruiter did not arrive.
Further tactics to be used
-against the Dow recruiter will be
decided at a meeting of all SDS
collectives at 7:30 p.m. in East
Mechanical engineering Prof.
Samual Clark, chairman of the
advisory committee, said that the
committee will meet Monday,
"probably at noon," to discuss the
charges against Dow.

House unit
hits talks
at colleges
Internal Security Committee has
compiled a report expressing the
committee's concern that money
paid to speakers at U.S. cam-
puses is a significant source of
funds "for the promoters of dis-
orderly and revolutionary activity
among students."
The report, based on a survey
of 134 campuses - 3.5 per cent of
all U.S. colleges - will be released
early next week.
Citing fees paid to speakers
from various leftist organizations,
the report says that speaking ap-
pearances "afford a forum where
the radicalization process may be
continually expanded."
But the report stops short of
concluding the campus speeches
-finance revolution or disorder,
saying the committee had no way
to ascertain how the speakers used
the money they are paid.
It cites 67 speakers who were
paid $109, 243 for campus speeches
during the past two school years.
The speakers range from Mark
Rudd, a leader of the Weatherman
faction of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society, to Benjamin Spock,
who has spoken frequently against
the draf.t
The report says the 67 peakers,
who made 155 of the 1,411 speech-
es listed by the surveyed cam-
puses, have been publicly iden-
tified with militant, radical or
Communist-oriented groups or
have provided public support for
such groups.
"If in a sampling of 3/2 per cent
of the institutions of higher edu-
cation, funds of this volume are
derived by such persons," it says,
"the Congress and the people of
the United States have a right to
conclude that the campus speak-
ing circuit is certainly the source
of significant financing for the
promoters of disorderly and revo-
lutionary activity among stu-
The report says Spock was paid
$21,550 for 12 speeches and Greg-
ory $19,550 for 21.
Mark Rudd was paid $1,069 for
five speeches, it says, and H. Rap
Brown, accused of inciting a riot

major reason for this is prejudice
against women medical students on
the part of the schools that train
them. One medical school stated,
"In this school we have not been

Nearly a month ago, people crossing the

filming a discussion between members of

Tonight at 8:30, that discussion will be

about the life of black students at this
campus. The program, part of the station's
"Profiles in Black" series, will also focus on
the issues surrounding last spring's class

statement added. "In this medical
school we screen all women appli-

order to be as certain as we can
concerning their motivation f o r
studying medicine."
Kaplan says that medical
schools are less apt to admit mar-
ried women than single women,
especially those with children.
"We have admitted a few mar-
ried women without children,"
wrote one school, "but our ex-
perience with them has been al-
most uniformly poor. At the pre-
sent we would not admit one un-
less she were an outstanding stu-
dent," it continued, adding, "Up

Many schools explained their at-
titudes toward women with child-
ren by voicing fears that the wo-
men will have to devote too much
time to being mothers. The Uni-

dents where there is likely to be
conflict between two jobs: That is
the academic pursuit and the re-
sponsibility of looking after a
family. If these two were in con-
flict, we would likely not accept
the student."
When medical scnools do accept
women students, they usually
make no provision for pregnancy,
expecting the student to return
as soon as possible. Kaplan con-
cludes that "the most startling
and frequent observations f r o m
