Union is "very

students back to

Wells stressed that the University
pays the Union-only a quarter the
amount given to similar institutions,,
such as the Memorial Union at the
University of Wisconsin. Thus, he
said, the Union has to support itself.
TO CHAR4 ES that the Union
doesn't serve the students, Wells
said, "You have to remember that
the Union was formed to be a center
for students, faculty, and alumni.''
,Kellman proposed seven possibili-

ties to relieve the space problem:
" Construction of a new building
next to the Coliseum for student ac-
" Renovate the Union and make it
a center of campus activity.
" Shift the administration of the
Union from the Board of Directors to
the Office of Student Services.
" Eliminate the University Club
* Renovate the 100 hotel rooms in
the Union and use them for dorm
rooms and office space.
* Use classrooms in Angell Hall in
the evenings for meeting rooms.

Thai gov't
BANGKOK, Thailand (AP) - A
swift and bloodless coup by dissatis-
fied military leaders yesterday top-
pled the year-old administration of
Prime Minister Tanin Kraivixien in
the country's eighth change of gov-
ernment in four yea's.
The 61-year-old Sangad Chaloryoo
told a television and radio audience
shortly after the coup announcement
that general elections would be held
during 1978. .
No violence or arrests were report-
ed, and most citizens in the Thai
capital went about their business as
usual. The calm contrasted with the
violence of the 1976 coup, when 41
persons were killed, nearly 200 in-
jured,and right-wing groups battled
students in bitter street fighting.
The new regime was expected to
introduce no major policy shifts, and
a member of the capital's interna-
tional community speculated that it
would be "business as usual on

Officials in the office of academic
affairs would not disclose the details
of the options they plan to offer the
Regents. But sources have speculat-
ed that one of the models calls for
SHS to be relocated in the School of
Education under the Special Educa-
tion department.
AN INDEPENDENT review com-
mittee, commissioned by former
Vice-President for Academic Affairs
prank Rhodes last spring, recom-
mended that SHS phase out its
undergraduate major, strengthen its
master's program, and stay under
the Medical School jurisdiction. De-
spite the review committee's evalua-

tion, Medical School Dean John
Gronvall and the school's Executive
Committee reaffirmed their desire to
dump SHS last summer.
If the Medical School does not want
SHS, "we would consider accepting
it in the School of Education," Wilbur
Cohen, Education School dean, said
The Education School "very likely
would also accept the review com-
mittee's recommendations" to do
away with the SHS undergraduate
degree, Cohen said.
THE REVIEW committee's report
did not recommend that SHS be
moved to the Education School.
Instead, the report suggested that

Regents to hear SHS options

SHS be realigned under the Medical
School's Department of Otorhino-
laryngology, a unit dealing with ear,
nose, and throat study, or stay where
it is now - under the Med School's
Physical Medicine and Rehabilita-
tion Department.
The office of academic affairs has
"taken some of the concepts" out-
lined in the review committee's
report and, coupled with other sug-
gestions, has incorporated them into
possible alternatives for SHS, said
Carolyne Davis, associate vice-presi-
dent for academic affairs.
Shapiro emphasized that the Re-
gents will make no final decisions
about SHS until the November or
December meetings.

ULP charge on the issue may weaken
GEO's clout with the University.
GEO has been without a contract for
14 months.
GEO STEWARD Dave Lechner said
the University offer resulted from a
GEO phone campaign and from
'picketing at President Robben
Fleming's recent "stateHof the Univer-
sity" address: Lechner spoke in favor
of the motion.
"This is something we can organize
the union around," said Lechner. "We
won this because of our action."
In addition, Lechner said the motion
