Wml^Ml Card Protest Continues .Students demonstrated for the third time in tee weeks Wednesday night at the South East Won ia defiance of the University no card play- ] policy. The third demonstration was the outcome of [rejection Tuesday by Richard Lichtenfelt, direc- F of University Center and Food Services, con- ^ning a three week trial card playing proposal tented to him last week by student government. ' As of press time a demonstration at the UC Res- "Jvation was expected again last" night. Sunday a shuttle service to Burger Chef is expected 0 enable the students to. totally boycott the Union uring hours when" it handles a large flow' of Merits at supper time. .After an announcement closing the grill be- fcuse the students refused to follow the University %, maintenance men changed the thermostat I^ister from 74 to 90 where it was locked into Place. .Students retaliated by .propping doors open ^h mats to keep air circulating. ■ Three hundred students played cards on the ■■*»» tables and pool tables while the three se- ""Jy'police present remained in the grill area. Steve Rison, student body president, led an leii-p discussion concerning what action students wanted to take. Several student leaders and concerned students spoke out about the. situation. It was decided to stay, play cards and protest the University policy. Rison stated that "We will not continue every night with demonstrations, but will move on to new and original demonstrative actions, until the Food Service "doll is completely stuck with pins." Presidentia Dave Wolds, Livonia sophomore and Bill Willett, Garden City freshman, have become the third and fourth aspirants for the office of student body president by stepping into the political arena earlier this week. They join Phil Schneider and Lou Oates, Saginaw juniors, in the race for the April 2 election. Running with Wolds on the SCOPE ticket is Dee Boersma, Mt. Pleasant junior. Wolds is a member of the Student Social Activities Committee, Central Debate team and Phi Eta Sigma (freshman men's honorary). He is udents To Hold eferendum by JOE BAKER Life Staff Writer It finally passed! . • . The Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities which the Student Senate has been .working on since September gained approval by the Board of Trustees at their open meeting-Wednesday. The Bill now-goes before the student body for its approval in the April 2 .election. If students accept the Bill, it goes back to the Board of Trus* tees for final endorsement before it can go into effect. The Board had rejected the original Bill at their meeting last month pending further revision and clarification by the students. ■ The Board received a letter from C. Milton Pike, dean of students, recommending that they approve the revised Bill in principle so it could go to student referendum. Only four of the eight board members were present at the meeting. Only one of the four* James M. Umphrey, voted against accepting the Bill. Umphrey said he agrees with the principle of the Bill, but the last portion of Amendment Five still troubles him. He said it puts the burden of proof on the University and not the students. Umphrey said that he would prefer the burden of proof be put on the defending student. He stated that he could see some real problems developing from the present form of the Bill. "The little things don't"-trouble me, Umphrey said, it's the serious crimes that the University can't do anything about that gives me a problem." Amendment Five, which Umphrey objects to, calls for an end to the administration's philosophy of "in,loco parentis" (actingin place of a parent). Trustee Walter W. Wightman, voting for the Bill said, "I hope the students recognize that it doesn't make a difference where they are, they are representing the University." He hopes that the students strive for a university that they can be proud Of and that others can be proud of. Trustee Roger M. Busfield, also voting for the Bill, said he has faith in the students and the dean's office. Umphrey stood firm on his decision and said there are times when the University must reserve to itself the right of ^disciplinary action. Umphrey fears that the University will have their hands tied and not be able to dismiss a student who commits a major prime, but is not convicted by lawful authorities. President Judson W. Foust, also in favor of the Bill, said he didn't think the students themselves would prohibit or harbor those types of students. \g%g __w CMU Board of Trustees Authorize Increase in Registration Fees I Central students will experience an increase ■^tudent fees, beginning with the summer session ■ - is »oi» 3 year. I. The CMU Board of" Trustees meeting Wednes- J authorized the assessment of the $15 non- ?^able regi'stratibn'fee.arirJ,.directed the reve- ^ into the operating •budget for* 1968-69. J5«j action was taken to Kelp bolster the Uni- '^ity's Qperating budget requirements anticipate^ for the 1968-1969 year. The increase is expected to yield an estimated $330,000 in additional revenue. Last October, the Board decided that the revenue would not be needed for the 1967-1968 year, so* the adoption was delayed. * . • ' New students who have applied for enrollment at Central and Who will be affected by the increase have been advised by the CMU admissions office that the fee increase would be in effect beginning this Summer, also assistant sports editor of Life and president of Sigma Chi's pledge class. Miss Boersma is president of Associated Women Students, a member of Central's debate team, an Alpha Chi Omega and past freshman representar tive and treasurer of AWS. She was also chosen as Freshman Woman of the Year two years ago. The SCOPE candidates'• main goal will be to continue the student rights movement and bring more responsibility to the students at Central. Wolds said they are seeking moderation and not interested in sudden changes or being radical. He believes that Central is not ready for radical changes and that each movement should be taken step by step. Willett, running as an independent^ candidate, has been an alternate dorm justice for" Saxe Hall and is a past student body president of his high school. Willett calls for a more militant stand on student rights. He feels the administration is not paying enough attention to the students, just worrying about the people in the city of Mt. Pleasant. Willett said all the, candidates running for student body president have basically the same ideas, positions and views. They differ in the dep- gree of how to attain what they believe. All candidates running for any office in the April 2 election must return their petitions fey March 23 in order lor their names to appear on the ballots. Jf.i / ' i U !
