Resources dean quits
James McFadden, dean of the natural resources school,
will resign as of July, 1974, it was announced yesterday.
The dean' plans to return to full-time teaching and re-
search' in the school. Since he came to his present post
in July, 1970, McFadden has seen the school grow from
662 students to nearly 1,000-largely in response to the
growing interest in the environment. In his resignation
statement, he said the school "is approaching a size and
composition which will enable it to make a unique con-
tribution towards solution of environmental problems
which confront the world." Academic Affairs Vice Presi-
dent Allan Smith said the search for McFadden's suc-
cessor will begin "immediately."

Watergate merry-go-round
The President stayed down in Florida yesterday, con-
cerning himself with the Middle East war and sending
off statements reassuring people he won't resign. Mean-
while, in Washington, Acting Atty. Gen. Robert Bork
told the House Judiciary Committee that the new Water-
gate prosecutor-Leon Jaworski-will be able to take any
steps he feels necessary, including going to court, to get
important documents. Sen. Peter Dominick (R-Colo.)
broke publicly with the President, urging his GOP com-
panions to proclaim independence from the White House.
In other Watergate developments, Watergate prosecutors
disclosed that John Dean had shredded two notebooks
from E. Howard Hunt's safe, and Judge John Sirica
indicated he would reject motions by Hunt and four
others to withdraw their guilty pleas.
Kissinger on Mideast
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, traveling in the
Middle East in an effort to stem renewed fighting, stop-
ped over in Morocco yesterday to talk with King Hassan
II. Today, Kissinger planned stops in Tunisia and Egypt.
The three major parties in the conflict-Israel, Egypt
and Syria-have warned that combat would erupt again
unless diplomacy can be made to work.
Weapons bill approved
The Senate yesterday okayed a $21.3 billion weapons
bill which gives the Nixon administration almost every-
thing they wanted in terms of weapons research and
development, and military manpower levels. The Senate,
howpver, attached a rider requiring the government to
keep eight Public Service Hospitals, in operation. Nixon
earlier vetoed an emergency medical services bill which
carried a similar provision. Only 12 Senators, including
William Proxmire (D-Wisc.), voted against the bill,
which allocates $2.2 billion for Israel and another $200
million for Cambodia.

Et tu, Jaworski?
Special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski once ap-
proved the use of a Houston foundation to launder money
at the request of the CIA, the foundation's president said
yesterday., Jaworski, who was sworn in yesterday, issued
a terse denial through his office, but acknowledged to a
Houston newspaper that he may have played a part in
the conduit arrangement. John Freeman, president of
the M. D. Anderson Foundation of Houston, said that
the group had channeled more than $600,000 to an
international lawyer's group in the late 1950 and early
1960s after being requested to do so by a CIA represen-
tative, whom he did not name. One of the matters under
the jurisdiction of Jaworski's special prosecution force,
of course, is the still-lingering question of the CIA's role
in the Watergate wiretapping and subsequent cover-up.

Court ducks sexism case
The Supreme Court ducked a case brought by women's
rights advocates seeking to outlaw "men only" policies in
public accommodations. The appeal to the court came
after a U.S. Circuit Court in New Orleans ruled that a
liquor license held by a men-only bar was not -sufficient
state involvement to invoke the 14th Amendment's pro-
hibition of state action denying equal protection of the
laws. Justice William Douglas cast the only dissenting
vote in the decision. The High Court also refused to hear
an appeal by a group of Maryland parents that a court-
orderedaschool desegregation plan violated their rights
as "Anglo-Americans."

The literary college facult

proposal that would have giv

voice in the college's govern
ment at its monthly meetin
yesterday.
The LSA governance pro
posal, sponsored by LSA Stu

dent Chuck Barquist and En
glish Prof. Marvin Felheim
would have completely revo
lutionized the governing fac
ulty.
IN PLACE OF a "town meeting
of LSA professors - the preser
literary college governing body-
the plan allowed for a represents
tive unit, which would have in
cluded50 faculty members electe

bers elected from the student body
At the same meeting, Universit
President Robben Fleming an
nounced that the University woul
issue a clarification tomorrow ex
plaining in-state residency criteri
and stipends for teaching fellows.
Fleming's promise to produce
definitive statement comes in th
wake of a teaching fellows' protes
against the, Regents' decision t
abolish in-state tuition for non
resident teaching fellows as well a
the recent record tuition hike.
FLEMING DID not specify wha
the statement would say, but h
did claim he could "reasonabl
predict they'd be pleased with wha
is said in the document as<
whole."
Another document will be is
sued in December with quantita
tive reports on the effect in in-stat
residency 'revisiois on student
and teaching fellows, and Flemin
said the community would be "as
tonished".
More than 30 students attende

Faculty members were quick to

Greek house

hit at c

An extended barrage of opposi-
tion to a proposed zoning change
which would allow many local fra-
ternities and sororities to be con-
verted to rooming houses charac-
terized last night's City Council
meeting.
Nearly 30 people addressed coun-
cil at the two-hour public hearing
and the vast majority of them
condemned the alteration as not
in the city's best interests.
SPEARHEADING the a t t a c k
were representatives from the In-
ter-Cooperative Council (ICC) and
various fraternities and sororities.
Several businessmen and realtors
spoke in favor of the proposed
change.
The rezoning, if approved by
council, will permit 42 Greek
houses in the Washtenaw-South
University area to be used as
boarding houses, which are cur-
rently prohibited under the present
zoning classification.
ICC President Gary Bement
blasted the proposal for limiting
student - controlled small - group

The Ypsilanti City Council last
night postponed actionsonea resolu-
tion that would put severe limits
on the distribution and sale of
pornographic materials in Ypsi-
lanti.
The proposed ordinance-which
has already been tabled twice-
was bro'ght to the attention of the
council by petition. Ypsilanti law
reeliires the signatures of a num-
ber equal to 20 per cent of those
voting in the last mayoral election.
Backers of the ordinance got 921
signatures although only 356 were
ne'-ded.
COUNCIL now has the option of
dealing with the issue within 30
days or letting it automatically
revert to rferendum. This ref-

replace fraternities and -sororities,
rents will go up while the physical
structures deteriorate.
THE CITY Planning Department
and Planning Commission have en-
dorsed the alteration because they
believe Greek life is declining in
the city and the houses are cur-
rently "underutilized."
Fraternity and sorority sp akes-
persons at the hearing last night

have become more popular in the
past several years.

Suit Claims Gill not enrolled, ask
CS to remove h im from SG

By JACK KROST
Continuing their efforts to remove
Student Government Council Pres-
ident Lee Gill from office, Gill's
political opponents on SGC filed
a suit with the Central Student
Judiciary (CSJ) yesterday charg-
ing that Gill is not a student and
hence is not eligible to serve on
council.
The suit, filed by 12 council mem-
bers from the Campus Coalition,
Screw SGC, and Mad Hatter's Tea
Party, claims that Gill "is not a
student at the University of Mich-
igan for this term and was not en-
rolled for the full term previous
to this term." Complainants refer
to public University records as
evidence.
THE SUIT was signed by Cam-
pus Coalition member Robert
M4atthews, who raised SGC's first
anti-Gill resolution which charged
Gill with embezzlement. Matthews
later admitted that he had no cn-
crete evidence for the embez'le-
ment charge.

A preliminary hearing before
CSJ, the main judiciary body on
campus, is scheduled for this
Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
Besides removing Gill from of-
fice, the suit, if approved, would
direct the SGC Administrative Sec-
retary to inform all the financial
institutions with which SGC las
transactions that Gill is no langer
a council .member, and would di-
rect officials to remove Gill's name
from all SGC accounts.
THE CRUCIAL question behind
a settlement of the suit, however,
is whether Gill is considered a
student by the University, and
further what constitutes a "full
term."
According to SGC's All-Campus
Constitutioni, c o u n c i 1 members,
"shall consist of currently enroiled
students, or students who were
enrolled in the previous full term."
An investigation of the public
studentregistration recordsbat
three University offices-Acaaemic

Records, Statistical Services, an
Student Certification, has reveale
that Lee Gill is not a currently
enrolled student at the University
but was enrolled last winter term
FURTHERMORE, Gill attende
school, in the LSA program, thi
summer, but dropped out July 1F
after most of the term was cam
pleted.
Complainants for the presen
anti-Gill suit allege that tie spring
summer terms constitute a "fu
term." If they are correct, there
fore, Gill would be in violationo

ring to the "previous full erm."
