Faculty members must approve Castro agrees to return
revisions in CSSG proposals $2 million hijack ransom

By SUSAN ADES
University faculty members,
at yesterday's Senate Assem-
bly meetings, supported a num-
ber of revisions made in the re-
port of the Commission to Study
Student Governance (CSSG),
which had asked earlier for full
stulent voting membership on
the executive committees in
University departments.
Although the faculty had ov-
erwhelmingly rejected the or-
iginal version of the report,
they expressed approval of new
changes which give departments
more power to decide how
much influence students would
have in governance.

Prof. Rob Van Der Voo said,
"The report, as it now stands,
is not a threat and does not
constitute a hazard" (to the
f'culty on the issue of Univer-
sity governance).
However, there still remain
several points of contension in-
volving the wording of a few of
the proossed bylaw revisions,
particularly one concerning in-
volvement in departmental af-
fairs.
Several faculty members ex-
pressed displeasure with the
unspecific wording of the
amendment which read: "Each

department shall be organized
in a manner as to provide gen-
eral participation by staff mem-
bers and, where appropriate,
student representatives in the
management of departmental
affairs."
PROF. of Biology - Chemis-
try William Lands questioned,
"Who will make the decision as
to when the situation is appro-
priate?" He went on the suggest
that the Regents, who will vote
on the report in the fall, make
these specifications.
However, in answer to Land's
query, CSSG.chairwoman Kathy
Kolar contended, "We were
merely attempting to put out a
legitimate and assertive frame-
work without getting into ev-
ery nook and cranny of each de-
partment of the University"
CSSG intends to leave the ac-
tual implementation of the re-
commendations to the discretion
of the individual department
membern.
BUT according to Lands, al-
though two of four changes in
the original CSSG by law re-
visions seem acceptable, the
fact that two others are as yet
unacceptable because time must
transpire before they can be
implemented "makes it difficult
to approve all four."
The faculty members yester-
day sent the report back to
CSSG in hope that the commit-
tee will consider additional mo-
difications to the document.

WASHINGTON (A) - Cuban
Prime Minister Fidel Castro has
agreed to release a $2-million
ransom paid by Southern Air-
ways for the return of a plane
hijacked in 1972, Sen. George
McGovern disclosed yesterday.
Without commenting on this
specifically, Secretary of State
Henry Kissinger credited Castro
with taking "s o m e limited
steps"ht o w a r dreconciliation
with the Uinited States.
"WE DO not consider an ani-
mosity toward Cuba is an es-
sential aspect of our foreign
policy," Kissinger said in re-
sponse to a question at a meet-
ing of American public broad-
casters.
Castro wrote of his intentions
in a letter to McGovern and
said he found reasonable argu-
ments for return of the ransom.
It was Castro's second concili-
atory move toward the United
States within a year.
