THE MICHIGAN DAILY
AUTOMOBILE REGULATIONS CLARIFIED:
(EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
questions and answers on new Uni-
versity driving regulations were pre-
pared by the Office of Student Affairs
In cooperation with Joint Judiciary
Q. What does the yellow card
I signed at registration mean?
A. This.card holds each student
accountable for knowledge and
understanding of the provisions of
Regents Bylaw 8.06; which governs
automobile operation, and the Ad-
ministrative Code established by
the Office of Student' Affairs. If
you do not have a copy of the
Code, you may pick one up at OSA,
1020 Administration Building.
Q. What is the authority of Uni-
versity Police Officers?
A. Although they may not stop
unregistered cars unless an actual
traffic violation has occurred, sec-
tion 11 of the Administrative Code
gives the officers authority to stop
and inspect registered cars at any
time even though the driver is
committing no traffic infraction.
Q. Who must register automo-
A. Every student enrolled in the
University who will be using an
automobile in the -Ann Arbor area,
regardless of the ownership. If a
student contemplates occasional
use of an automobile belonging to
someone who is not required to
register, (such as Ann Arbor resi-
dents, faculty or staff members)
the student should secure a tem-
Q. Are some students eligible
for a permit without having to pay
A. Yes, students who have Re-
gent appointments as Instructor,
Teaching Fellow, Teaching Assis-
tant, Research Assistant or Re-
search Associate, as well as those
carrying less than 5 credit hours,
are not required to pay a fee, al-
though they must register the car.
The fee is less for part-time stu-
Q. May a 21-year-old student
drive someone else's registered car
carrying an exempt permit?
Q. Does the 21-year-old student
borrowing the car need to regis-

United Nations Should Settle Canal Crisis
Q. May a student over 21 drive
an unregistered car?
A. Any use of an unregistered
car is a violation of the automobile
code regardless of infrequency of
use. For example, the fact that
the wife of a student uses the car
almost exclusively does not excuse
her husband from registering.
Q. May a student who is not 21
drive, another's legally registered
car carrying an exempt permit?
A. Not unless that student re-,
quests permission from the Office
of Student Affairs. Approval of
such requests will depend upon
the sufficiency of need and non-
abuse of this limited privilege.
Q. Who is responsible when a
car carrying an exempt permit is
is borrowed by a student under 21?
A. Both the person in whose
name the automobile is registered
and the borrower will be consid-
ered violators of the regulation.
This applies also to cases where
the car is borrowed without per-
Q. Is a coed under 21 violating
the regulations when she rides in
a registered automobile?
A. No. The intent of the code is
to regulate automobiles and their
drivers. There are no restrictions
concerning passengers' age.
Q. To what extent may someone
borrow a car which carries a spe-
A. Such a car can be driven by
a borrower over 21 within the
scope of the special permit. For
example, a car carrying a commu-
ter's permit may be driven by a
borrower for commuting purposes.
However, a student under 21 must
secure perminion from the Office
of Student Affairs to borrow such
Q. May a car carrying a storage
permit be driven by another stu-
A. No, even though the other
student is 21, because this permit
assumes the car will be stored off '
the streets and not driven without
prior clearance from OSA.
Q. May a student drive his par-
ents' car when they are visiting
in Ann Arbor without securing a
A. Yes, so long is the car is being
driven for the convenience of the
parents and they are present.
However, if the student, whether
or not he is 21, expects to use the
car for his own personal or social
purposes, permission must be ob-
tained from the Office of Student
Affairs. Driving the car to the
student's quarters, after dropping
off the parents, will be interpreted
as personal use.
Q. What is the student's duty
regarding registration of an auto-
mobile which he brings to Ann
Arbor temporarily or which is
brought by a visiting date or oth-
A. If the student is 21, prior
clearance with OSA is necessary
and a temporary permit will be
issued. The student would be wise
to protect himself in this way,
even though he does not expect
to drive the car without the date
or guest being prseent, because of
If the student is not 21, he must
secure permission from OSA and:
submit a letter of parental release,
as well as one of release from the
car's owner, when he plans to use
a. car not belonging to his parents.
Q. Will permits be issued to
groups as such for group activi-
A. Since individuals may secure
temporary permits to operate a
car, a group "need" could be sat-
isfied by the issuance of a limited
number of permits to individuals
within the group.
Q. What if I should sell my car
and buy another?
A. Any change in registration
information must be reported to
OSA within 5 days of such change.
This includes not only change in
ownership, but insurance, license
plates or driver's license.
Industrial Water Fluorides Not Dangerous,
Health Director,_Dr. Seward Miller Asserts
Fluoride in water used in in-
dustrial processes is no more dan-
gerous to the workers who drink
the water, or to any other phase
of the industrial use of water than
chlorine, Dr. Seward Miller, newly
appointed director of The Univer-
sity of Michigan's Institute for
Industrial Health, recently an-
"Those opponents of fluorida-
tion who maintain that fluorides
will accumulate in the body in
various ways, and be harmful to
adults just do not know what they
are talking about," Dr. Miller, a
former director of Industrial Hy-
giene and Occupational Health
Activities of the United States
Public Health Service, said.
Dr. Miller cited a recent com-
prehensive U.S. Public Health
Service Study conducted in Grand
Rapids, and Montgomery County,
Md., as scientific proof that fluor-
ides do not accumulate in the body
as formerly claimed.
"The people in these two metro-
politan areas have been drinking
fluoridated water for years" he
said. "The Public Health Service
studied over a period of time the
amount of fluoride excreted daily.
by the body, in the urine. The
results of this study again demon-
strated that no hazard. of accum-
ulative toxic, or poisonous, effects
occur with the use of fluoridated
water containing one part per
million of fluorides. In other
words, the body eliminates fluor-
ides it does not need, at the level
of ingestion," he added.
According to Dr. Miller, re-
ports of this study are available
from the U.S. Public Health Serv-
ice, Department of Health, Edu-
cation, and Welfare, Washington,
Q. What if I have a situation
about which I am not certain?
A. Go to the Office of .Student
A f f a i r s, 1020 Administration
Building, for interpretation, or
Aend your question to The Daily.
An answer will be printed within
a day or so.
The controversy raised by
Egypt's seizure of the Suez Canal
should be settled through the
United Nations, a foreign affairs
expert said here recently.
In Ann Arbor for a speaking en-
gagement at the University, John
C. Campbell said in an interview,
"The West should get UN endorse-
ment of freedom of navigation
through the canal, with a clause
providing for action in case. that
freedom is viola.ted."
Campbell is director of political
studies for the Council on Foreign
Relations, which publishes the
magazine "Foreign Affairs."
-No Military Action
World opinion would not back
military action by the British, he
said. No country, he added, should
take unilateral action against
Egyptian premier Nasser, and not
even the UN should take military
action until the freedom is ac-
"Although Britain is right in
saying that control of the canal
by one country jeopardized the
guarantees of free navigation for
world shipping, military action
cannot be justified until that
freedom is violated."
He thought it was unfortunate
that Britain is. taking such a,
strong stand, because of the loss
of prestige if she is forced to back
down and because there can be no
long-run gain in a military ap-
Campbell said, however, that a
display of force by the British may
have a salutary effect by showing
Egypt the danger of her position.
"Egypt," he explained, "is in a'
strong position because it is ordi-
narily accepted that a sovereign
nation can nationalize a com-
pany if proper compensation is
given." Britain recognizes Egypt's
right of nationalization, though
she does not accept that it applies
to the Suez Canal.
Other Arab nations may get
ideas from Egypt's seizure of the
canal, Campbell said. Syria has
already thought of nationalizing
the pipe lines'that go through her
territory and the oil countries may
take encouragement to take over
foreign oil interests.
What will the Soviet Union
make of this?
"Russia will play it for all it's
worth. She will sit back and reap
the diplomatic and propaganda
gains, and watch her stature growI
as a friend u. the Near East."
But, he added, Russia is dis-
turbed to see Western troops in
the Mediterranean. "She doesn't
want to be challenged to a Middle
Eastern military showdown, which
she's sure would become bigger
The Soviet does not consider
her interests in the Near East so
vital as to make it worth their
while to have a military show-
down, and does not want to be
forced into a position of turning
aown a challenge, according to
Campbell. "I don't think Russia
will back Egypt down to the last,"
