(AP) — C. Peter Magrath, who will become president of the University of Minnesota Sept. 1, Wednesday held his first public meeting with the state Board of Regents and announced some administrative appointments. Magrath, now president of the State University of New York at Binghamton, announced his plans for changing the structure of central administration during the two-hour meeting with the regents' executive committee. Magrath announced the formation of.positions which, will be known as vice president for institutional planning and relations and vice president for administrative operations. Stanley B. Kegler, now vice president for administration, will be named vice president for institutional planning and relations, said Magrath. The position of vice president for administrative operations is vacant, but Magrath said "I do have somebody in mind for this position." Magrath said .the candidate he has in mind will visit Minnesota next week for interviews with faculty, administrators and students. Magr"ath also said he is consulting with faculty and students about establishment of a search committee to find a successor for Paul Cashman, vice president for student affairs, whose resignation was announced at the last regents meeting. Magrath said he'd like half of those on the committee to be students. Two of Magrath's associates at the State University of New York at Binghamton will join Magrath when he succeeds outgoing U of M President Malcolm Moos. Magrath asked the regents to name Roberta J. Goffman as 'his administrative assistant and Mitchell B. Pearlstein as his part-time assistant. BOSTON (AP) - The Rev. John McLaughlin, the Jesuit priest and presidential aide who recently defended President Nixon's use of profanity, has been called to Boston by his religious superior for "prayer and reflection." The Rev. Richard T. deary, provincial of the Jesuit Fathers of New England, said Wednesday there was a possibility Father McLaughlin could be asked to leave his White House post, or be dismissed from the order, which would not necessarily affect his status as a priest. Father deary, who noted Father McLaughlin was living in the Watergate apartments in Washington, questioned whether the priest was living up to his vows of poverty and obedience. Father Mclaughlin recently spoke out in defense of Nixon, saying he was a great moral leader and that his use of curse words was a necessary release mechanism. Father deary, asked if he would agree with Father McLaughlin's defense of profanity, said, "1 would be standing up against Moses if I did ... 'Thou shall not take the name of thy Lord and God in vain'." He said Father Mclaughlin was not speaking for the church. Father Cleary also said he had no record of Father McLaughlin being given permission to live in the exclusive Watergate apartments. "Speaking for myself, I would not live there," he said, adding that Jesuits usually are required to live in Jesuit communities. "I will be asking him to take a brief time away for prayer about his situation and reflec- tion with me," Father Cleary said, adding he was asking Father McLaughlin to come to Boston as "soon as he can get time to do it." Father Cleary said, "I do not. intend to hurt him ... 1 am not saying he is not in good standing as a Jesuit priest." He said no actual permission had been given for Mclaughlin to work in the White House, although he said some encouragement was given. Mrs. Goffman, 49, has served as Magrath's administrative assistant since the summer he became president of the State University of New York-Binghamton in 1972. Before that she worked as an advisor to foreign students. Pearlstein, 26, will enroll as a graduate student at the University of Minnesota, and work part-time in Magrath's office. He is currently director of the public information office at the New York university. Magrath has been on campus this week for his first visit since being named president to meet with students, faculty and administrators. He said he will also make visits to Minnesota during June and August, before moving to Minneapolis permanently in September. The first fleet of motorized taxis in the United States made its debut in 1907. Balmoral Pavilion Friday, May 24 DAVE LEONARD TRHJ •Country Western Country Rock GIRLS FREE!

"He has made recent statements on his own. It is my understanding this is not what he was originally hired for In Chicago, Mclaughlin, told of Father deary's statements, said he did not intend to speak for the church. He said he had conducted a survey of 9 of the 10 Jesuit provinces in the United States and said he found only 36 letters and 6 telephone calls inquiring about his actions or protesting them. Kather Cleary said he is asking Father McLaughlin to make an eight-day retreat, required annually of all Jesuits. Regarding Kather Mclaughlin's attitude toward the controversy over his status at the White House, Father Cleary said, "He likes to feel it's a political question. I do not feel it is. The question at issue is a religious one." In Chicago, Kather McLaughlin urged Rep. Jerome Waldie, D-Calif., to disqualify himself from the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment investigation. "Waldie quite clearly has convicted Presid* nt Nixon in his head and in his heart, and has severely prejudiced the impartiality of the committee," Mclaughlin said. Mclaughlin previously has urged two other Democratic members of (he committee- Robert K. Drinan en Massachusetts, also a Jesuit priest, and John Conyers of Michigan-to disqualify themselves from the inquiry.
