up of the council, saying that the
current compostition of three ad-
ministrators, three faculty, and three
students on the council might sound
fair, but "it's really six non-students
and three students." She said that
perhaps the number of students
should be increased.
Under the plan, the council would
make policy, and a central coor-
dinator selected by the council would
administer it - "like the president
and theregents," Hartman said.

Daily Circulation-764-0558 what the procedures should be in life-
threatening cases. Like Hartman's
draft, the ideas came from discussion
in the council.
Eklund's draft, presented in the
form of a chart, would work as

The incident would then be reported
to the Central Coordinator - to be
selected by the Council. The coor-
dinator would then determine what
action to take. After following several
procedures, including interviewing
both the witnesses and the accused,
the coordinator would either refer the
accused to counseling and treatment
services or to more "disciplinary"
According to Eklund's chart, the
accused would facea hearing in front
of an impartial hearing judge
provided at the University's expense.
The accused would have the right to

draft is merely a rough outline and the
council will have to discuss things like
the question of double jeopardy, when
someone is accused both in civil court
and in a University hearing.
The chart assumes that the coor-
dinator would not follow through with
disciplinary action if the civil
authorities are already pressing
charges. But Eklund says this among
other issues must be spelled out
clearly before ittis released.
All drafts presented to the council
would be altered and refined by the
council before being released to the
University community for comment,
Winkelman said.

Chief Justice critics
advertising by lawyer
WASHINGTON - Chief Justice
Warren Burger, who called some
advertising by lawyers "sheer
shysterism," is out of touch with
the realities of practicing law, at-
torneys charged yesterday.
Lawyers were quick to respond
to Burger's comments-

Hyatt, whose firm, Hyatt Legal
Services, has 170 offices and ad-
vertises heavily on television. "Be

suspect he thinks most lawyers who
