S+i* ffe census farms i ,By KATHY KULINEC Life Staff Writer Questionnaire forms for the 1970, census will be sent to students within two weeks after they return from spring vacation. According to Mrs. Donna Secour of the^Midland Census Bureau which includes the Mt. Pleasant area, every student must fill out a questionnaire and return it to a designated enumerator, or census bureau representative. the U.S. Constitution requires the census be taken every ten years to determine population, ages, education, housing, and employment. Students cannott file a census questionnaire both at home and on campus. "Students attending Central Michigan and residing in Mt., Pleasant must be enumerated as Mt. Pleasant residents," Mrs. Secour explained. "Everyone is counted where he eats, sleeps and lives. Therefore, parents cannot file college students as living at home." The only exception to. this rule is if a student attends a school below college level, such as a boarding school. The Midland Census Bureau hopes to employ student enumerators selected with the cooperation of the housing office. 'The student enumerators will be picked this week," said Mrs. . Secour. 'They will be trained after-spring vacation." Each student enumerator must take an oath- of silence since' the information he will be receiving is strictly confidential. Individual information will be kept confidential by the census bureau, and only Statistics of the census will be made known to the: public. In the.dorms, student*enumerators will enlist the cooperation of the house mothers to make sure everyone has received a quest ionnaire. Forms will be turned in to a central place in the dorm, and student enumerators will check to see if the form is complete. K,'.'Every fifth person will be_ asked more questions by the student enumerator,'! continue? Mrs/ Secour. "These students will be designated on a central list over which the census bureau has ho control. • According to WiUiam Barrons, Mt. Pleasant- city manager, stu dents receive Ml credit for distribution of state revenues allotted to Mt. Pleasant. "Last year Mt. Pleasant received $22.64 per capitafrom the State," explained Barrons. 'This year I expect more money in total to be taken in by Mt, Pleasant, but less money per capita lor each individual," concluded Barrons. Revenues from the state come from sales tax, state income tax, intangible taxes and highway funds. Central michigan Vol. 50 NO. 64 Mount Pleasant, Michigan 48858 Wednesday, March 25, 1970 Tie party ties one on; wins landslide election By SUE REEVES ■.••' /"" Life Staff Writer ~ Y By an almost three to one margin, the Tie party of* Rick Kedzierski and Mike Lueder was swept into the offices" of stude it body president and vice presi ent in yesterday's campus-wide election. Kedzierski received 2,3.15 Votes While Jon Childs, Committee presidential candidate, received 893 votes, the vice presidential , totals were 2,322 for Lueder and 883 for Donna Patterson. Kedzierski said that they had not anticipated that the margin- would be as great as the totals showed. 'The,~l>asic^ thing 4s« thft wb had unity behind us," hp.said. During the campaign, * , t * ~ RICK KEDZIERSKI Kedzierski added, we almost old **tie*' the campus together since we had the support of both major and minor organizations. *1 think this swayed a lot of people and now we're ready to go fiiil steam ahead on the issues," Kedzierski said. Approximately 30 per cent of the student body cast ballots in yesterday's election. Lueder said that 30 per cent is a poor turn out but he was proud that Tie took such a large majority of those who did vote. '•What's important," Lueder said, "is that we bring in the TpvPjr cent who d^dn^ vote. We sYfj«uit efe^ one." Kedzierski said that the students who did vote were the truly concerned students and the campus leaders. ^_ Lueder pointed out that there are a number of questions to be answered which will take all of the student body. "We need to work hand in hand as students of Central Michigan University on all the major issues," Lueder said. s^ The Tie ticket has already decided that student involvement and individual response will play a big part in their administration. Kedzierski said that if a student is interested in anything, they should become involved. "You dont have to be a student senator to change this University." Trustees to decide faculty salary topic Formal approval by the-Board of Trustees at their meeting today is all that remains for the 1970-71 faculty contract to become operative this fall after five weeks of negotiations . ^. . Ratification by the faculty took place by secret ballot Monday with 369 or 82 per cent of the faculty in favor otthe contract and. 82 or 18 per cent against ? it. Of the 547 faculty members, 451 or 81 per cent voted, .••rappreciate the turnout of the , faculty*" Robert Clason, chair-* man of the faculty team said, . 'Indefinitely pleased by the con- ;' "tract and believe its a step forward in professional negotiations." » , Faculty and trustee bargaining groups reached agreement last Wednesday with the weekend devoted to inspection of the contract by the entire faculty. If approved by the trustees, the contract would up Central's average salary 7.1 per cent for all faculty and make it over the 90th percentile according to the American Association of University Professor Standards. Additional salary benefits caU for .the establishment of higher minimum bases for all academic ranks. Fringe benefits include better hospitalization, a new sick leave plan and better life insurance coverage. The agreement is the first of its kind at a four year college or university in the country* •*"We also want to keep the individual contact with the student body that we had during our campaign," Lueder said. "The one to one ratio is great for a campaign and it needs to be continued after we're in office," he added. Communication between students and the student body officers, according to Kedzierski, has been one of the big problems of the past. "Once the president gets into office, students lose track of him," he added. •If we can keep in contact with the student body," Lueder said, "we wiU have what we want," One of Tie's main campaign goals was the restructuring of Student Senate. According to Kedzierski, this willbe their first concern. MIKE LUEDER On Conduct Code ting^m By SUE REEVES Life Staff Writer An open hearing on the present Student Conduct Code was held yesterday to give students the opportunity to express their ideas and opinions about the code. . \ According to John Yantis, chairman of the University Rules Committee, they are reviewing the code with the possibility of revising it or drawing up a new one. The present StudentConduct Code was drawn up last spring by the office of the Dean of Students at the request of President WiUiam B. Boyd. According'to C. Milton Pike, dean of students, no students were involved in drawing up the present student code but part.of the material which was used had been collected by the Student- Faculty Judicial Committee. That committeehadbeen working on Student Conduct Code, Pike pointed out for four and one half years, but had not come up with a code. Last spring, the present Stu- . dent Conduct Code was devised because, ;*'a_ working document _was needed,^* he said,. The code was submitted to Boyd and approved by the Board jof Trustees last May. It was not submitted to either the University Senate prjhe Student Senate tor their approval before it was put into effect. Pike said it, was determined last May,* however, that the University Rules Committee would review the code this year with the idea that it would be revised. According to Yantis, the open hearing was a primary step in finding out what student criticism is concerning the Conduct Code, Yantis hopes that the University Rules Committee wiU complete its recommendations by May so that if a new or revised University Conduct is formulated it could be approved this spring by Boyd, both of the senates and the Board of Trustees.

Pleasant's proposed housing code has undergone two major revisions in an effort to speed . passage by the city commission. Code revisions concern one- and two-family dwellings and structural specifications of area homes. This means homes occupied by less than three families will not be affected by the revised code and main- tenence standards of the building wiU be less restrictive Y Code revisions concern one and two family dwellings and Structural specifitions of area homes. This means homes occupied by less than three families will not. be affected by the revised code and maintenence standards of the Previous building standards required that roofs, exterior walls, windows, ceilings arid porches meet certain Specifications such as weather-tight construction. r 'There are two basic reasons for the code revisions," BiU Barrons, city manager said. "One, we wanted to get the code adopted so that it will be in fuU effect by next faU. The other was we wanted to clear the way to start work on the zoning ordinance so it would also be in effect by September." Opposition to the code would be reduced by omitting the sections dealing with building regulations and private homes ac-. cording to Barrons, 'ISince our main concern is the multiple dwellings which compound safety and health problems, we would like to have this section of the code passed as soon as possible," ; the city manager said. "As soon as possible" would be at the April 6 city commission meeting. Code operation would begin two weeks later. The sections dealing with the private homes arid building regulations will probably be discussed during the Summer after the zoning ordinance is completed.
