If the need arises, the South Af-
rican government has said it will
take over the operations of many
companies and c o n v e r t them to
build war machines and software.
The South African government
now has nuclear capabilities as a
result of U.S. involvement.

U.S. corporate investment in
South A f r i c a is responsible for
making that country the most in-
dustrialized militarily potent coun-
try south of the Sahara Desert.-
The benefits this stature brings are
confined, only to the white popula-
tion. The dangers this involves for
the African continent are poten-
tially devastating as long as the

tn further action the Regents
received a copy of "University
policies in handling stock"
from chief financial officer
James Brinkerhoff in what may
signal the beginning of a re-
view of University holdings and
relations with corporations deal-
ing in South Africa.
The disbursemnt of this in-
formation comes in the wake
of yesterday's public discussion
session where four students at-
tacked the University for sup-
porting the apartheid policies
of the South African govern-
ment through its investments.
STUDENTS asked that the
University begin an in-depth
study of its holdings and estab-
lish some policies which would

The stock policy statement,
written in 1971, recommends
"that University groups con-

approved President Fleming's
decision to merge the Minority
Commission" and the Commis
sion for Women into one Affirm-
ative Action Office. Several Re-
gents made statements saying
they hoped the merger would
strengthen the intent of these
Commissions, not weaken them
as some people thought.
The Regents yesterday also
voted to raise the daily service
charge at University Hospital
$10. The increase is intended
to bring an additional $750,000
in federal money from Medi-
care-Medicaid reimbursements.
Brinkerhoff told the Regents
the current charge is about $34
a day under what Medicaid -
Mericare will pay back and
added, the rates which are cur-
rently being charged by other
hospitals in the area, "substant-
ially exceed" those of Universi-
ty Hospital. The increase will
bring the daily cost of a single
room in the hospital to $140-
Vice President for Academi
Affairs Frank Rhodes also told
the Board graduate tuition fees
next year will be made more
equitable to "reduce the dispro
portionately high financial bur-
den" on part-time students."
