Alternative Party) would get the
seats. A RAP majority would be
untenable." RAP is GROUP's main
opposition on Council.
One of the three meetings this
term was unofficial because a
qi orum was not present. The only
nieeting during the summer was
also unofficial. Yet Jacobs ex-
plains, "Council is not paralyzed
by the member that are not here.
It's the RAP people who are doing
Brad Taylor, a former member
of RAP and SGC, disagrees. "Even
when I was on Council, GROUP
members made a practice of walk-
ing out and disrupting meetings,"
he says. "Their only actions seem
to be passing a ream of SGC regu-
lations and eliminating democratic
procedures in meetings and elec-
One of the new procedures estab-
lished by Council this year ,is an
improved - and more expensive -
method of holding all-campus elec-
tions. Treasurer David Schaper
calls the new system "the cheapest
way to have an honest election."
It will cost Council $9,000 this year
-$2,000 more than last year.
The increased budget results
from the referendum, passed last
spring in an election with a turn-
out of only 15 per cent of the stu-
dent body.
The referendum also asked that
$17,500 be used for a grocery co-
op. Yet the money has not yet
been used because the Regents
don't want such a co-op. Jacobs
said he needs support from the
student 'body so that he can press
the Regents for the money.
Every SGC member has a dif-
ferent view of SGC's "problem."
Politics, according to Schaper,
is the main source of the problem.
"Members are primarily concern-
ed with politics," he says, "and
not with getting things done."
According to Dobbs, the diffi-
culty is a lack of priorities on
Council. "There are no priorities,"
he says. "It's ridiculous to spend
$4,000 on each SGC election. These
people are nothing but bureau-
crats, playing with parliamentary
To Bill Krebaum, another mem-
ber, the problem is even more
fundamental. "SGC is providing
very few of the necessary services
that students need," he says. "It's
not essential for students and its
not necessary for education. And
most of the students don't even
Jacobs sees the trouble in party
squabbles. "One party blocks an
action merely on the basis that it
doesn't like the other party," Ja-
cobs says. He adds that "the un-
holy alliance" between RAP and
the Tenants Union party were a
further cause of the Council's

SGC will be increased by adding
women, blacks, and other groups
to Council, "so that we can find
out what they are talking about."
"If SGC can give students some
alternatives to the frustrations of
the students, then their interest
will be increased." He cites the
proposed legal advocate, grocery
co-op and day care center as such
But Krebaum feels that the en-
tire structure of SGC is wrong.
"There is no reason that students
should support a government im-
posed by the Regents," he says.

"It should be a voluntary organi-
zation. If students want a govern-
ment, that's fine. But we shouldn't
require all students to support it
with their tuition money if they
don't have any interest."
Jacobs strongly disagreed with
Krebaum. "If the day ever comes
that there is no SGC," says Jacobs,
"that will be the day that the ad-
ministration and Regents will run
all over the students."
But a more immediate question
that SGC members must first try
to face is how to avoid running all
over each other.

Student Government Council last
night declared the Council seat of
Joel Silverstein vacant and Coun-
cil appointed President Bill Jacobs,
Administrative Vice President Curt
Steinhauer, and Council member
David Smith to sit on a committee
to interview applicants for the seat.
Council, in an earlier meeting,
requested that letters be sent out
to absent members of the body,
asking about their desire to stay on
council. Those who responded nega-
tively or did not reply would be
Letters were sent to Silverstein,
Michael Davis, and Marty Scott,
all three missed the Sept. 7 coun-
cil meetings. No reply was received

from Silverstein and Scott showed
up at tonight's session. Davis and
Scott are members of the GROUP
Davis sent a handwritten note
from his present address in Cleve-
land saying "I do not wish to re-
sign my seat on SGC, I can still
serve. I shall for some time to
come do what I can for students
of the University." Davis also
pointed out that his previous at-
tendence at SGC meetings was
better than the Council average.
Jacobs ruled that because Silver-
stein failed to reply, his Council
seat was vacant. There was no
vote taken. Steinhauer objected to
the failure to include Davis, say-
ing, "I want Davis (at these meet-
ings) in body and not in spirit."
He made a motion to overrule the
chair but the measure failed to
gain the necessary majority for
Brad Taylor, former SGC mem-
ber, went before Council members
and declared that he would bring
suit in Central Student Judiciary
to reinstate Silverstein, claiming
that there are no grounds for re-
moving an absent member in the
SGC constitution.
Several Council members said
last night that there should be a
constitutional amendment requiring
all SGC members to be students
of the University. Such a prohibi-
tion would presumably end con-
troversies such as the Silverstein

privileges to secrecy had been vio-
lated and asked for a public hear-
ing on the matter.
The trial judge, U.S. District
Court Judge Matt Byrne, denied
the requests. But attorneys, in a
last-minute appeal to U.S. Supreme
Court Justice William Douglas, won
a stay of trial pending the high
court's ruling on whether to hear
the issue.

The government sought to have'
the entire court set aside Douglas'
stay, but the court, then in sum-
mer recess, declined to act.

Why do people dream? Why do

These and many other, more
technical questions were discussed
yesterday at a two-day "Sympo-

at the Towsley Center for Contin-
uing Medical Education.
The symposium, which adjourns
today, was created to present the

Some other areas discussed by
the group of speakers included
"psychophysiological correlates of
Iental activity during sleep, de-
pression, schizophrenia, narcolopsy
and hypersomnia, insomnia, 'short

has an alternate premise to fight
the case on.
Pointing to a copy of a speech
Fleming made in 1968 before the
Economic Club of Detroit, Car-
penter said, "We're going to
prove Fleming is right."
Fleming said, in the speech,
"Any rational analysis will show
that the State of Michigan gains
more than it spends on out-of-
state students."
Citing federal funds, and pri-
vate grants, Fleming showed in
the speech that out-of-state stu-
dents help bring the University

Carpenter, reviewing the present
operating budget of the University
will attempt to show that "non-
residents are subsidizing the edu-
cation of the instate students."
"I think we can show that the
80 million from state funding does-
n't cover the support of just the
Michigan students now in resi-
dence," he said.
University l a w y e r Roder-
rick Daane said, "The basic po-
sition of the University in this suit
is that the regulation in question
is lawful under the existing state
of law. It affords students a rea-
sonable means of demonstrating
that he or she is a bona fide domi-
cile of the state of Michigan."
Carpenter hopes to have a de-
cision on the case before the be-
ginning of the winter semester.

The Child Care Action Center in

tion currently serves 40 University
staff and student families but re-
ceives no funding from the admin-
istration. It is currently facing a

teachers and administrator.
They have called on the Univer-
sity to provide space and funding
for the Child Care Action Center
and for a North Campus center not
yet established.

shelved again and again. We've
already made all the attempts we

"We feel they should make a
contribution for University - wide
