The Overseers' Committee on Governance has divided into three subcommittees to continue its comprehensive study of the University.
The most important subcommittee will investigate the problems caused by Harvard's large administrative bureaucracy. It will reexamine the role of the President, the Corporation, the Board of Overseers, the Council of Deans, and other administrative bodies. In addition, this group will study University finances, considering shifts in federal grants and investment policy.
Another subcommittee will consider problems of inter-school relations, including proposals for a University-wide Senate made up of tenured and non-tenured faculty, students, administrators, and alumni, and disciplinary procedures for faculty and students.
A third subcommittee will discuss broader issues concerning the purpose of a University, its responsibilities, and the challenges it faces.
C. Douglas Dillon 31, Harvard Overseer and prominent member of the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson Administrations, has been elected president of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.
He succeeds Arthur A. Houghton Jr. 29, president of Stenben Glass, who has been elected chairman of the board of trustees after five years as the museum's president. Both men will assume their new offices January 1.
Dillon chairman of the board of United States, and Foreign Securities Corporation, is expected to play a major role in helping to buttress the museum's financial standing.
The richest museum in the nation, the Metropolitan still must face a deficit this year. A major drive for capital funds is expected to follow its current centennial celebrations.
The Harvard Coop is now issuing new all-purpose Master Charge and CAP cards, which can be used both at the Coop and other Cambridge stores.
The cards, carrying the Master Charge on one side and a Coop number on the other, are available at the main desk of the Coop. Members who do not want the all-purpose credit cards, can also obtain regular Coop cards.
The new cards are part of a change in Coop billing policy this fall by which the Harvard Trust Company has taken over Coop charge account operations.
Although the Committee on Rights and Responsibilities has no Radcliffe members, one girl will participate in discussions and another will vole on all disciplinary cases involving Cliffies.
Nancy-Beth Gordon 71, who was selected by the Radcliffe Judicial Board, will participate in discussions both when the three-man hearing panels make their "findings of fact" and when the full committee decides on the punishment of Cliffies. However, she will not vote on punishments.
When the committee decides on disciplinary action. Rence Chotiner 70, a member of the Committee of 15, will vote along with the nine regular committee members.
Miss Chotiner was offered a place on the committee when it was established in September but she refused to accept full membership because of too many commitments to the Committee of Fifteen.
The Cambridge City Council has decided that Harvard had better look to its fences-at least to one of them.
At Monday's council meeting, David Eaglesfield, teaching fellow in Social Relations, complained that the temporary fence Harvard put up enclosing most of the Quincy Street sidewalk next to the Gund Hall construction site is forcing pedestrians to walk in the street.
During one five minute period, he said, 33 of 40 pedestrians walked in the traffic lane of Quincy St, because of the fence, which runs down the middle of the sidewalk, leaving only a two-foot walkway a path impaired by several poles.
The council-which issued a permit for the fence several weeks ago-ordered Harvard to build a four foot wooden walk-way next to the construction site, if it wished to retain the fence.
The Harvard Corporation has been meeting weekly through the fall to consider nominations for two vacant seats on the 6-man governing board.
Final decision on the nominations is expected to come sometime in January. The two vacancies were created when William L. Marbury 24 and R. Keith Kane 22 announced their decision to retire next June. In September, the Corporation sent letters to all faculty members seeking recommendations on replacements. Almost 300 nominations have been submitted.
