PLEASANT, MICHIGAN Friday, October 20,, 1967 U-Senate Attempts to Limit Discrimination t > ^mmmmmmmmmMmmim^ %. m m P m I m iM it i Whodunif? 45 Mystery by PHIL SCHNEIDER Life Weios Editor Somebody had the power to enroll a University student after the $45 deposit deadline elapsed — but nobody is saying who that "somebody" is. However, some insight has been gained on the situation, although the whole issue still remains clouded. Senator Jerome T. Hart, whose name has been linked with the case, had nothing to do with getting the Saginaw girl admitted, according to State Senator John F. Toepp, of the 34th district which includes . Mt. Pleasant. 'Imprudent, Arbitrary' Rule \ Earlier this month State Representative-Donald E. Bishop of the 63rd District , wrote President Judson W. Foust criticizing Central's rule on the enrollment deadline: Bishop called the procedure "imprudent and arbitrary." Bishop also said the acceptance of the girl after the deadline was "discriminatory" and "unacceptable" to him. "I am satisfied that what happened has happened. I don't agree with it. To my understanding it will not happen again," said Bishop. Bishop said that he did not know whether or not a member of the appropriations committee threatened to- delay a bill. But he pointed out, "It's possible anyone could hold up a bill for any reason." No Threats John DeCarlo, vice president of public services, said, "No one threatened to uphold any appropriations bill." Toepp said he first heard of the issue from a newspaper article and ". . . immediately called CMU to find out if the student was from my district. "A state legislator does not have the prerogative to exert any pressure against any University official to break any Uni- .versity regulation," said Toepp. Toepp and Hart are members of the senate appropriations committee. No Denial Hart did not deny that he had anything to do with getting the girl admitted and said he didn't know the girl. Toepp said if a legislator did threaten to delay appropriations he would represent only one vote on the appropriations committee. '«. ^ere was an exception made for one then there should have been an exception made for anyone in the state. Wnats fair for one is fair for everyone." Who's'Somebody'? rhe fact still remains that somebody, !°>mlx had the Power to get a student 5u Sfter the enrollment deposit But who is that "somebody?" ihe $45 deposit issue will.not die until -somebody" is born; .; I £-3 IP 5#: A report and six recommendations designed' to prevent possible discrimination in campus student organizations were accepted and approved by University Senate members at their regular meeting Monday afternoon. ■ ' U-Senate president Jean Mayhew Tuesday requested the dean of students office to' implement the six recommendations. I The ad hoc committee report on student organizations stemmed from the refusal last year-of U-Senate to grant approval for a local Sigma Chi chapter. Approval was denied due to unfavorable publicity concerning the policies and practices of other Sigma Chi chapters and the possibility that similar practices could exist here. Approved Afier Assurance U-Senate approved Sigma Chi as a campus organization in November of 1966 after the ad hoc " committee was assured there was no membership discrimination. The ad hoc committee sent a questionnaire to 108 campus organizations requesting information on constitution and membership practices. Only 13 of the 108 organizations did not return the committee's questionnaire. Two of the organizations felt their civil freedoms were violated and reported the ad hoc committee to the Michigan Civil Rights Commission. A representative from the commission visited Central and cleared the committee of any violation of civil liberties and congratulated the com- Hall of Fame Lists Lilyan Alspaugh Lilyan Alspaugh, instructor in business, has received an appointment to the Executive and Professional Hall of Fame on the basis of "honors, awards, educational, civic and religious achievements, European honorary assignments, contributions to management, publications and addresses and leadership achievements in various educational and professional organizations."
