INTERI

RULES

and

Final
By ROB BIER
Final action is expected today in the
Legislature on the higher education ap-
propriations bill with the possibility of
an additional tuition increase for the
University hanging in the balance.
Last Thursday the House approved a
version which included $6 million more
for state universities, with a $1.25 million
increase for the University, over the ear-
lier Senate version. The House also added
a number of amendments aimed at curb-
ing c a m p us disruptions and approved
other measures of the same sort already
passed by the Senate.
"The outlook doesn't look very good as
of this point in time," President Robben
Fleming said yesterday, commenting on
the outlook for the University's appro-
priation. "We have already indicated that
we will work very hard to avoid a tuition
increase, but right now it's hard to say,"
he added.
Sen. Charles Zollar (R-Benton Har-
bor), chairman of the Senate Appropria-
tions committee and a member of, the
Joint Senate-House committee which has
been meeting to work out a compromise

vote

set

between the two versions, was equally
pessimistic yesterday.
"We have to have a balanced budget
and if we give $6 million (the total in-
crease in the bill approved by the House)
to the universities we'll have to take it
out of mental health or somewhere else,"
Zollar said. "The money just isn't there."
Fleming agreed that Zollar might be
right. "Apparently revenues are turning
out to be less than was expected and the
final figure may end up close to the one
originally passed by the Senate," he said.
At the time the Senate approved $73.3
million for the University, administra-
tion officials said it might necessitate
another tuition increase above the 15 per
cent one approved by the ,Regents in
April.
But money is not the only issue which
has been keeping administrators on the
phones to Lansing. The House, also added
a number of amendments to the bill, in-
cluding:
-A measure requiring state universi-
ties to expel any student "who causes
willful damage to public property on a

on 'U'
campus or, other facility of a college or
university;"
-An amendment, apparently aimed at
the University's 10 per cent black ad-
missions goal, which would prohibit state
universities from establishing admissions
criteria based on race, national origin or
religion, and;
-A vote to cut $93,000 from the ap-
propriation for Wayne State University
because of the administration's failure to
curb publication of the university's stu-
dent newspaper, the South End, which
legislators have criticized for publishing
articles allegedly emphasizing profanity-
and sexual perversion.
Those amendments join a provision
which remained from the Senate version
specifying a -minimum number of hours
a faculty member must spend each week
in classroom instruction and another re-
quiring state universities to submit a
written report to Lansing of any damage
which occurs during a campus disruption.
"I don't really know what the provision
on admissions criteria will mean for our
black admissions goal," Vice President
for Academic Affairs Allan Smith said

DISCIPLINARY

PROCEDU RES

Statement by the Board of Regents
April 17, 1970

On March 31 we issued a statement containing
the following passage :
"Faculty and student groups have worked for
some months on revision of rules and enforce-
ment procedures. This the Regents welcome
because they understand that a key element
in rule enactment and enforcement is par-
ticipation by those who will be governed there-
by. Nevertheless, and until such procedures
can be perfected, it is essential that there be
more effective internal sanctions."
To provide a temporary mechanism, we do now
issue these Interim Rules and Disciplinary Proce-
dures, to be applied to offenses occurring here-
after. They may be superseded or supplemented
by our adoption of rules drafted by the Univer-
sity Council and our establishment of a more
permanent judiciary.
INTRODUCTION

compatible with the purposes of an aca-
demic community; are prohibited:

with the freedom of movement of any

in which the student charged is enrolled.
C. Upon filing of the charges, the dean imme-

1. To limit the number in attendance at
the hearing to assure decorum;
2. To limit the number of witnesses in order
to avoid dilatory tactics;
3. If a party to the hearing or his adviser

ing as if he had not appeared.

hearing, the hearing officer shall file a re-
port containing findings of fact, conclu-
sions as to the validity of the charges. If

propriate hearing unless extraoardinary cir-
cumstances preclude a hearing. In any
such case, the President or his delegated
representative is authorized to suspend the
person charged, the suspension to remain
in effect pending completion of the hearing
and final determination of the case.

dures established by the Board of Regents.

Senate approves
19-year-olds face
draft lottery today

postal

refor

WASHINGTON (P) - Some
two million men born in 1951
share an hour and a half of su-
spense today as a national lot-
tery assigns the mplaces in line
for the 1971 military draft.
Most of them probably will
end up either deferred or ex-
empt from the draft, or ready
to enlist voluntarily; but for the
others, available but not eager,
the lottery drawing is crucial.
By the drawing of red and
green capsules from two rotat-
ing drums, each man's birth-
d a y is matched to a number
from one to 365.
Available men will be called
for military service next year
beginning with the lowest num-
bers and progressing to higher
ones. How high the number calls
next year will go is anybody's
guess, depending as it does on
how m a n y men are actually
available and how many t h e
Pentagon decides to draft.
Even for those deferred or ex-
empt, the numbers in today's
lottery are significant; for such
men would have to f a c e the

draft with those same numbers
at any time in the future if they
should lose their deferments or
exemptions and become 1-A.
A similar lottery last Decem-
ber assigned place-in-line num-
bers to all men then between
the ages of 19 and 26. T h e y
keep the numbers they got then'
and are not affected by today's
drawing.
The n e w drawing, however,
was prepared in a more complex
and cautious way to avoid the
charges of inadequate mixing
which followed the December
event.
This time, birthdays and num-
bers were scrambled separately
according to computer-generat-
ed random tables, then placed
in separate plastic drums and
locked away in a room at the
Commerce Department on Mon-
day.
With both dates a n d num-
bers scrambled, high, low and
in-between numbers are likely
to pop up unpredictably
throughout the drawing, main-
taining an element of suspense.

Selective Serv

Sussman to serve
as lit school dean
Informed administration and faculty sources reported yes-
terday that Allan Sussman, associate literary college dean, will
be named to take over as interim dean of the college until an
acting dean can be found o replace Dean William Hays who is
leaving today for a year at the University of California in Santa
Barbara.
It was also reported that Dean Fedele Fauri of the social
work school was being considered for the position of vice presi-
dent for state relations, the post left vacant by the suicide of
Arthur Ross June 5.
Contacted yesterday afternoon, President Robben Fleming
responded to the possibility of Fauri's appointment with a
sharp, "No comment." However, he did say that an announce-
ment would be made "quite soon" on a temporary replacement
for Hays, who will become associate vice president for academic
development upon his return to the University.
Earlier reports said that Sussman had turned down the
post of acting dean in order to continue teaching and research.
However, Vice President for Academic Affairs Allan Smith has
reportedly encountered difficulty in finding someone to serve
as acting dean and has now asked Sussman to take over the
dean's duties until an acting dean can be found.
It had been reported elsewhere that Fauri was "offered" the
vice presidency. However, last night there was no confirmation
of that rumor, only that his name was being discussed, along
with others.

Hospitald
ove Pixi
WASHINGTON UP) - The Senate rejected a
presidential scolding about fiscal responsibility
yesterday, and voted to override President Nixon's
veto of a politically popular hospital construction
bill.
The vote to override was 76 to 19, or 12 more
than the necessary two-thirds majority.
The action, following by five days a similar
move in the House, thus completed the first con-
gressional override of a veto in 10 years and in-
jected yet another issue into the raging election-
year debate over the economy.
The House voted 279 to 98 last Thursday to
re-pass the $1.26 billion measure. The House vote,
in which 67 Republicans joined 212 Democrats to
override was 27 more than the required two-thirds
majority.
In the Senate, not one Democrat voted to
support Nixon and eight of the nine Republicans
seeking re-election this year went against the
administration.
The only exception was Sen. Roman Hrus-
ka, (R-Neb.). Republican leader Hugh Scott of
Pennsylvania also voted to override the veto.
