' Today's session is being held in Lansing and is closed to the general public. The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. in the Senate Appropriations Room. Senator Edward J.

Lilt the nap an« "Merry Chris-Moose." llliP In General Ed. tinges Adopted By Marshall Matlock Life Staff Waiter ; Central students may, in the iear future, be required to take 46 hours on a general ^education curriculum, in order |to graduate, according to a report made by the Subcommit- itee on General Education. The general education cur- riculum, if adopted, would [take the place of present poup requirements. I After two years of delibera- ijtion and over 35 meetings, the pubcommittee on General [Education presented a report jto the General Curriculum f Committee which called; for a, program that would better en- fable a student at CMU to receive a "well rounded" edu-* 'cation. f The subcommittee was appointed in October, 1963, to [?tudy and evaluate the distribution of the general education requirements at CMtJ. . I. The program, if accepted, | would mean that the CMU stu- I dent would have to take 33 se-- | Blester hours in three basic, [groups. This includes a. .xpinK; • »*urn of nine "hours each iyom' natural sciences and.- mathefi&i^ "cs, social sciences and '*"' ■ canities). In tltree-hour would require the student to take only three hours of En- ^Thlrteen hours that would be required include three hours of English compos tion, speech, and political science and four hours of physical education activity. Chairman of the 10-man sub-committee, Dr Gabriel Bacz, commerce, explains that J?en though 33-hours would be required in general education courses before a CMU student could recewe a degree, the student would have a greater choice of courses that he would like to take. He points out that it would not be like the present system where just one or two courses would have to be taken to fill a requirement. Dr. Racz stated, "We (Subcommittee) feel it would be a great improvement from the standpoint of the student. We are concerned that any proposed recommendations be student centered. Dr. RaCz says his subcommittee h^s conducted an in- (Continued on Page 3) Eyes of Central Are On Lansing Central's eyes are on Lansing. In addition to President Judson W. Foust's testimony before the Senate Investigating Committee into faculty-administration relationships today, CMU will have watched with interest yesterday's actions on the floor of the Michigan legislature. Yesterday, and possibly today, Michigan legislators attempted to over-ride three ve- tos by the governor, one of which was a $1.2 million supplemental appropriation Which affects Central. "Small" Schools Affected The bill, which both Governor George Romney and Lt. Governor William Milliken (acting as governor while Romney was on ah Asian trip) vetoed, was to be divided among six "small" Michigan schools. Western Michigan, CMU and Oakland each admitted approximately 450 more students than originally planned in their budgets at the urging of the legislature. The supplemental appropriation was to cover the cost ofvadmitting the additional students. Romney and Milliken have indicated they are against such "deals" between legislatures and administrators of colleges. The issue, although involving "chicken feed," as Governor Romney put it, has created a stir among students on Oakland's campus. (D-Dearborn), chairman of the investigating committee, said earlier this week that there were a number of factors which influenced him tp move the final hearing to Lansing. "There is a possibility that the legislature, whicli goes back into session on Dec. 9, will still be in session oh the tenth. Consequently, we would -have had to cancel the hearing if it was in Mt. Pleasant," Proceed with Hearing Now if the legislature is in session Friday, we ,can still proceed with the hearing, although we may have to recess" from time to time for roll call votes," Sen. Robinson explained. The limited size of the Senate Appropriations Room was reported to be another factor, why the press, but not the* public, would be admitted to the final hearing. Sen. Robinson also said the committee didn't want to cause any undue stress for President Foust, but added that the President did not ask. for the private session and. had "'' •made it clear he wanted no'"' special favors. * Review Ronan .(hup .,-„_._-,.,,.. two; i ■ ^ "• <=-uuur interdisciplinary; | courses at the junior or senior '.level which would cut across 2 least two groups m 'sub- eroups would be required of a11 students. personnel U©_ _te$bi&& J-he subcommittee also pro-; Posed to discontinue a lew of «»e^ required courses, Enabling "Student to complete Ms gen-' I*1 ^cation courses plus the SUlrements for Ms ^aa30r f^Kiinor.

It was stated that according to the Ronan constitution, the Special Edition Monday CMU Life will publish a special issue Monday on President Judson W. Foust's testimony today in Lansing before the State Senate Investigating Committee o n faculty-administration rela-* tionships. Life will also publish its regular, 12 page issue a week from today. The next Life is scheduled for Friday, Jan. 7. President Foust said he was not in on the decision, to move the hearing to Lansing and. added, "It doesn't make any difference to me." CMU's President added, "I' don't feel they- have a right to* conduct this investigation in the first place. I'm not really too concerned what they report to the Board. They've completely ignored them (Board of the Ronan constitution tne ^ —e^e7s) throughout housemother cannot sit, m on ± .ieation/> "My 'house- deliberations of verdict on cases brought to the board. It was further charged that while the dorm constitution stated that candidates for dorm council must be juniors, two sophomore girls are presently running to fill vacancies in the council. When approached by, Life, members of the group accusing the housemother did not want to be identified or linked with specific charges. Dean Pike, Senate advisor, asked Why the charges had not been brought to the attention of the Executive Housing Board. Pike stated that "no one has visited me from Kb-. nan." He also suggested that if Ronan's constitution needs change, "there are methods of updating ifc"'! this investigation."

Hepler, English department chairman, and Dr. Karl Pratt, psychology, will not tes^ tify today. Sen. Robinson also said that he would have a statement at the conclusion of today's hearing concerning the conduct of the investigation. The Dearborn senator added that if the state attorney general's opinion indicates his investigation may not be constitutional, it will have little effect at this late date.
