board positions
In what promises to be a closely contested race, 12
fd * persons have filed for three openings on the Ann Arbor
Board of Education. Covering a wide range of political and
educational philosophies, most in the group have already
begun campaigning for the June 14 election.
Of the three incumbents, only board member Theodore
Heusel is seeking re-election. Of the 11 others, none have
had previous experience on the board, though some are
teachers or educators.

d h group wants IU o dd
homosexual advocatesto OSS

In an effort to "extend the
University's attempt to aid op-
pressed minority groups," an
ad-hoc group of campus homo-
sexuals has asked for the es-
tablishment of an advocate's
position in the Office of Stu-
dent Services (OSS) .
In a May 19 memorandum to
Vice-President for Student
Services Robert Knauss, the
committee proposed that t w o
staff assistants for homosexual
students, a man and a woman,
be hired on a part-time basis.
In addition to functioning as
a source of information to
homosexual students, each as-
sistant would serve as a "peer
counselor" and as an "advocate
for the abolition of sexual op-

analogous to the two advo-
cate's positions already estab-
lished for black students and
women students.
Although the proposal did not
specify the office which would
hire these assistants, OSS's
newly-formed Office of Spec-
ial Services and Programs was
agreed upon as "the most ap-
propriate" by the committee,
The proposal will probably
need approval only by the over-
all policy board of its parti-
cular office, and if that office
had sufficient funds, the board
could then procede to hire the

pressure for adoption she saw
because of the "extreme sen-
sitivity" of the issue, Angela
Lawson, assistant to Knauss,
added that she was optimistic
about the proposal's eventual
Knauss said Monday that he
has not yet had time to consider
the proposal, but will most likely

member of the group who
formulated the "Humane-
ness in Education" report;
and Marcia Federbush, head
of the Committee to Elimi-

group of l o c a l women in-
volved in education.
Also running for board seats
are Robert Hefner, director of
the C e n t e r for Research on
Conflict Resolution and Radical
Independent Party (RIP) mem-
ber; Norman Keefer, a psycho-
logist with the Taylor Public
Schools; Kay McCargar, a grad-
uate student in the University
School of Education and for-
mer substitute teacher in the
Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Other hopefuls include Duane
Renken, a local businessman
and unsuccessful candidate for
the board in 1968; Willie Simp-
son, a social worker; and Dr.
Charles Votaw, University prof.
of anatomy.
Concluding the list are Rebec-
ca Vanderhorst, suspended
teacher in the Ann Arbor public
schools and Ruth Zweifler, a
volunteer tutor in the Ann
Arbor School district.
As the candidate for R.I.P.,
Hefner says he will stick to his
party's platform, which includ-
