cators of whether minority stu.
dents can make it here. But
other admission factors, such
as counselor recommendations
and student motivation, are
evaluated, too, Fleming added.
Fleming commented on the
effect a pending reverse dis-
crimination case before the Su-
preme Court might have on 'U'
minority admission policies.
tn 1970, the question arose
whether the University "should
have somewhat different (ad-
Imission) standards because so
many minority students had
been subjected to poor educa-
tion in the K-12 system," Flem-
ing said.
THE DIFFERENT standards
are applied "not on the basis
of r"ce, (but) on the basis of
disadvantage,'' said Fleming.
The standards are "sustained
for enough years to overcome
the disadvantage."
A ruling by the Supreme Court
decision declaring it unconstitu-
tional to use different standards
on the basis of race, sex, ethnic
origin, etc., would "knock out
what we've done," said Flem-
ing.
But the purpose of different
admission standards could be re-
tained despite a court decision
by "picking up the language of
the court and restructuring what
you're doing ... do it some other
way," Fleming commented.

NO VOTE TOTALS were avail-

Six write-in candidates were
tied with one vote each in the
Baits housing UHC elections.
UHC Chairman Gary Fabian
said yesterday "it will be left
up to the entire council to de-
cide" who would fill the Baits
seat. The UHC would choose
one of the six write-in candi-
dates.
"IT IS POSSIBLE that the
council could declare the Baits
seat vacant until next term,"
Fabian said.
Because of a mix-up in filing
procedures, "there will almost
definitely betanew election"
for the Markley-Oxford seat on
UHC, Fabian said.
The council will formally de-

Te said he has no intention
of asking Congress for standby
authority to control prices and
wages. He said "the constant
threat of wage and price con-
trols" could prompt unwarjant-
ed \price hikes by industries
seeking to act while they can.
Carter said he did not know
why the steel industry chose to
raise prices now, or whether
the hike was needed, but he
said he was disappointed by the
action.
"I wish and still hope
that the steel companies might
forego this increase or termi-
