CSSG blasted for stand
on student participation

By TIM SCHICK
The Commission to Study
Student Governance (CSSG) has
drawn criticism from both stu-
dents and faculty for recent
changes in its report concerning
the role of students in Univer-
sity decision-making.
The original report, issued
last year, recommended giving
students voting membership in
schools, c o Il e g e and depart-
mental executive committees.
However, a supplement released
in April backed down on the pro-
posals so that the report now
recommends allowing student
participation "w h e r e appro-
priate."
ELLIOT CHIKOFSKY, presi-
dent of the Michigan Union,
yesterday blasted the changes

from the original version of the
report. On the other hand, Act-
ing Literary College (LSA) Dean
Billy Frye asserted that even
with the supplement the report
goes beyond the scope of the
commission's assignment.
Chikofsky pointed to the elimi-
nation 'of the proposed Student
Executive Officer, which has
been replaced in the new report
by a student representative to
the Board of Regents.
According to Chikofsky, the
original idea was to give a stu-
dent representative access to
meetings of the University's
executive officers.
HOWEVER, Robert Stephens,
a CSSG member and the Uni-
versity's educational advocate,
claims that access to executive

officers' meetings would depend
on more than just the title the
student holds.
"It would depend on how the
Regents wrote the by-law (for
the executive office)," he said.
In addition, "the executive offi-
cers might decide not to allow
the student to attend their meet-
ings."
Chikofsky pointed out, how-
ever, that the by-lava could be v
written to prevent the exclusion
of the student representative.
STEPHENS said that while
the commission changed the -
name of the job, the duties re-
main essentially the same. "We
discussed it with the Regents A -
and decided that (the new
name) was a better description
of the job we were talking
about.
Chikofsky also charges that
the group which wrote the sup-
plement was not the whole com-
mittee but only the "self-ac-
claimed leadership." In addi- AP Photo

Executive inacti delays
Sinvstigation: Church
WASHINGTON (A') - White Huse reluctance to turn over key
documents is forcing a delay in the Senate Intelligence Commit-
tee's investigation of alleged assassination plots involving the Cen-
tral Intelligence Agency, chairman Frank Church, (D-Idaho), said
yesterday.
"We have not yet received from the White House materials
that we had requested and that had been promised to the com-
mittee and that were really necessary to a thorough interrogation
of the witness," Church said in announcing the postponement of
the scheduled appearance of McGeorge Bundy, former national
security adviser to the late President John Kennedy.
THE testimony of other high officials in-the Kennedy and
Johnson administrations, including former Secretary of State Dean
Rusk and former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara, also has
been postponed, Church added.
Without the documents "it's quite useless for us to bring these
witnesses before the committee - all of them are essential, all of
them have to be very carefully questioned," he added. Church
described the documents as "minutes of the National Security
Council and minutes and other documents of the special group
that had control of covert activities during the late 19S0s and
early 1960."
Earlier, on the Senate floor, Sen. Barry Goldwater, (R-Ariz.),
