Rehnquist here
U.S. Supreme Court Justice William Rehnquist is
scheduled to preside over the annual Henry Campbell
Moot Court Competition at the law school today, amid
plans for a demonstration by students opposed to Rehn-
quist's philosophy. Rehnquist and other legal celebrities
will hear arguments presented by students in a hypo-
thetical court case at 2:30 p.m. in Room 100 of Hutchins
Hall. Next he will be whisked to the League for a 6:30
p.m. banquet and award presentation.
Fences explained
In case you've been wondering about the unsightly
fences that appeared over spring break along side the
Grad library, a campus concentration camp is not in
the wind. According to University Grounds Manager
Kenneth Wanty, the fences were erected to enclose
construction areas being set off for library renovation
work. The fences next to the Grad library building will
surround an elevator shaft and stored construction
materials, and the fence across the path is for a field
office trailer, Wanty says. However, the sign pictured
below, which is attached to one corner of the fences,
claims differently.

Last year John Ryskamp was a student in Inteflex,
the University's new six-year program for students
in medicine. Ryskamp says he dropped out of the
program when Inteflex administrators ignored his
needs as well as the stated goals of the new medical
learning system.
Over a year later it seems that students are still
being stifled in a' program beset with problems.
AFTER A particularly frustrating and unfruitful
attempt to change a course requirement, Ryskamp
wrote a letter to George Demuth, the head of the
medical school portion of Inteflex.
.."I wonder if they ever consider how much damage
they might be doing to their own ideals and to their
students by that type of activity," Ryskamp wrote.
Inteflex is a relatively new program within the



University. It began in the fall of 1972 and its aim is
to enable high school graduates to complete their
pre-medical and medical educations in a cohesive
six-year program rather than in two distinct four-
year segments. This is accomplished by combining
the literary college and Medical School courses.
Various faculty members differ in the goals they
see for the Inteflex. One goal is to save students
from the grade pressures and other hassles of apply-
ing to medical school after the undergraduate years.
It is also hoped that some course repetition can be
ANOTHER STATED GOAL IS to meet the current
shortage of qualified physicians in the U. S. But Don-
ald Brown, a coordinator of the program and director
of Inteflex evaluation research, concedes that "it's
not going to create more doctors by virture of being

INTEFLEX WAS NAMED for the two supposed
components of the program - integration of courses
and flexibility in scheduling.
It is also hoped that the program will train doctors
to practice medicine instead of research. Brown says
the pressure to practice must come from society,
however, and that "colleges have very little effect"
in this area.
Most important of all, the program hopes to turn
out more "humanistic" doctors who will view their
patients as "individuals instead of test cases", ac-
cording to several administrators of the Inteflex pro-
Associate Dean Charles Witke, the new LSA co-
coordinator of Inteflex; says, "The goals of the pro-
gram have not been fully defined."

After three full terms of operation, the question
is asked: has the Inteflex program so far been a
Without fail, every faculty member asked this
question refused answer.
Arthur Vander, Inteflex instructor and curriculum
advisor, says, "I think it is important not to be too
quick to criticize it - it's still in its infancy."
However, one glaring inadequacy in the program
has been the lack of cooperation between the Medi-
cal School and LSA. There are many reasons given
for the inability of the two schools to agree on such
fundamentals as required curriculum.
Brown cites the "different philosophical orienta-
tions and methods" of the two schools as being the
primary barrier. He also admits that other bases for
the problem exist, but says he refuses to expose them

Streak note
In line with the national trend, the University will
host two competing streak events today. The first,
heralded as the "First Annual Ann Arbor Streak-In," is
set for 1 p.m. Participants will -gather at Eden Foods
at 330 Maynard, then streak through the Nichol's
Arcade and over State St. to, but not across, the Diag.
One organizer, who called himself "Dr. Ron, the Mid-
night Streaker," insisted yesterday that this is the
"official" event. However, a group entitled "The Com-
mittee on Buffing-It," has scheduled a "First Annual
Lucky Streak" for 10 p.m. starting. on the Diag and
proceeding to South and West Quads and back.
Elections set
The Graduate Employes Organization (GEO) is off
and running toward union status. Elections which could
result in the group's recognition as the sole bargaining
agent for the University's graduate employ'es will be
held April 1, 2 and 3 under an agreement worked out
last week between University officials, GEO and the
Michigan Employment Relations Committee. With over
900 constituents on record as favoring the elections,
GEO spokeswoman Devva Kasnitz claimed yesterday,
"There's not a chance in the world we could lose." GEO
needs the approval of 50 per cent of the University's 2,185
graduate employes to gain legal union status.
Pact inked
A new three-year contract between the University
and Local 1583 of the American Federation of State,
County and -Municipal Employes was signe d by both
parties Thursday' The signing came after the University
employes' union's general membership voted Wednesday
to ratify the contract.

sought Nixon's testimony to back
their contention that Ehrlichman
acted in his official capacity to

Young would be free of any

with the agreement.
Liddy, already convicted and
sentenced as a Watergate burglar
and conspirator, is charged in the
federal indictment returned last
Thursday with conspiracy to vio-

"Among the reasons given for

Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Tremendous hustle, desire
final minutes enabled the 21-4 Wol-
verines to defeat Indiana for the
second time in three 1974 meetings
and advance to the NCAA tourna-
ment for the first time since the
Cazzie Russell era.
The Wolverines never trailed in
the contest as Bobby Knight's
-scrappy crew just didn't have
enough to catch Michigan, even
when the incomparable Campy

with 4:48 left in the game.

Laskowski and Blue guard Steve

free throws and the Wolverines still
had just a three-point lead, 66-63,

yesterday at a sparsely attended

mission's report.

' faces gas crisis;*
moves to ease pinch1
A gasoline crisis may hit the University by mid week if officials
are unable to supplement the March allocation of 17,000 gallons for
University vehicles.
That amount, which is 70 per cent of the 1972 quota, was depleted
at the rate of 1,000 gallons per day between March 1 and 7. At the
present rate of consumption the entire March allocation would be used
up in five days.
In describing the problem, John an Tassell, supervisor of plant
purchasing, said, "All of a sudden, we are in an energy crisis up to
our elbows."
UNIVERSITY OFFICIALS are attempting to avoid the crisis in two
areas. The Purchasing Department is soliciting supplies from Standard,
Gulf, Arco, and 13 other gasoline companies to add to that of Texaco,
the University's present supplier.

Despite LSA Dean Frank Rhodes
suggestion that afternoon classes
be cancelled to enable students to
comment on the comprehensive re-
port issued two weeks ago, most
of those attending were professors
and only two or three students ac-
tually spoke during the two and a
half hour forum.
Members of the Commission,
which studied most aspects of "the
present nature and future status of
the baccalaureate degree" for over
a year, fielded questions and cri-
ticisms from the audience and at-
tempted to clarify several of the
report's recommendations.
gued that the four credit hour
course standard would be too
rigid and would lead to a devalu-
ation of the University's bacca-
laureate degree as a result of the
process of repackaging three credit
hour courses to four hours.
Members of the Commission de-
fended the proposal, noting that
some courses would be offered for
two hours credit. Additionally, it
was pointed out that the four cred-
it hour standard would reduce the
need for students to take more
than four courses per term.
THE REPORT'S recommenda-
tion that at least one half of the

ments would enable students to
take all of their distribution re-
quirement courses in a single field.
Despite the specific questions
and criticisms directed toward
some aspects of the report, the
overall thrust of the report was
generally praised as a "good ba-
sis for constructive change," as
one speaker put it.
The LSA faculty will meet next
Monday, March 18, and probably
March 25 as well as its regular
monthly meeting April 1 to form-
ally discuss and take action on the
commission report.
