VOL. LXIV, No. 128 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, FRIDAY, APRIL 2, 1954
By BECKY CONRAD
Shifting to the problem of a
board to review decisions of the
proposed Student Executive Com-
mittee, the Student Affairs Study
Committee yesterday tentatively
spelled out Board composition and
The group agreed on a seven-
member Board composed of three
faculty members, two students and
the Deans of Men and Women.
SEC PRESIDENT and one stu-
dent selected by SEC itself would
sit on the Board. Faculty mem-
bers of Senate rank would be cho-
sen by the present Faculty Senate
Advisory Committee and the
Board would elect one of these
The study group thought
Board meeting would occur "in-
frequently" and that SEC de-
cisions would normally be sus-
tained. However, the committee
was "apparent lack of SEC jur-
isdiction over subject matter"
or action which "might need fur-
ther consideration," the Board
felt in certain cases where there
could review SEC moves.
However, the study group 're-
served final decision on Board re-
view functions until further de-
tails are spelled out.
Committee chairman Prof. Lio-
nel H. Laing of the political sci-
ence department emphasised that
the study group serves only in a
recommending capacity to Uni-
versity President Harlan H. Hatch-
er and that any implementation
of its proposals is beyond the
sphere of the committee.
It was suggested that a time
limit of two weeks be set during
which the Board would issue a
notification of "intent to review"
Otherwise, actions of the pro-
posed committee would go into
SESSIONS of the Board would
occur at the chairman's call and/or
at request of any Board member
"when there is a point of issue,"
the group, decided yesterday.
When there is such a "point of
issue," it would be stated and,
pending meetings, the Board
could give out a stay of action
concerning SEC decisions.
Thus, the Board would act more
or less as an "appelate" body
where, if no "interested" party ap-
peals, SEC decision is final.

The newly elected representa-
tives' to the Student Legislature
divided sharply in opinion on
whether or not they favor the pro-
posed SAC study group student

tion, a review of the "Know Your

Candidates for SL were asked
before their election:
"Do you favor in theory the
proposed SAC study group stu-
dent government plan of the Stu-
dent Executive Council (SEC)
composed of seven organization
representatives and elected mem-
bers subject to a faculty, student,
administration reviewing board?"
Of the 22 newly-placed SL
members 21 responded to the
F question, with 11 opposed to the
SEC reorganization plan and 10
Proponents of the SEC saw it
acting as an effective student gov-
ernmental organization and sup-
ported it on these grounds.
kHowever, those of the incum-
bent legislators who opposed the
creation of SEC saw a threat to
student government and the pos-
sibility of the group being unrep-
resentative of student opinion.

pay raise, amounting to about
$8,000,000 a year for state em-
ployes, was handed to the Sen-
ate committee. The salary hike has
thrown the Legislature into some
confusion and may throw a mon-
key wrench into all capital outlay
A few legislators have even
been talking about balancing
all of the pay raises by cutting
capital appropriations, that
would chop off about two-thirds
of the whole state's building
The Civil Service Commission
has authority to fix pay, so all
the legislators can do to avoid
raising total expenditures is to
either slash the number of state
employees or cut some other partr
of the budget-and capital out-
lays are easiest cut.
Meanwhile, a bill to take away#
the Civil Service Commission's
salary-fixing power is being con-;
sidered by the Legislature.

expectations are borne out, the

The fate of the capital outlay'
request is less certain, but Lan-
sing speculation has it that it will'
be approved at close to the level
of the present Senate' bill.
"It isn't what we wanted, but
they are short of money," Vice-
President Niehuss said. He added'
that the Legislature has given
careful consideration to capital
outlays and has shown under-
standing of the University's needs.r
