ing will be held on Monday, March 11,
1968, in Hill Auditorium at 3:00 p.m.
The Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs has urged deans and faculty to
co-operate in permitting student par-
ticipation, by dismissing classes, with
the exception of clinics, labs, and
other meetings not readily resched-
uled, after 12:00 noon. An announce-
ment will be made where students and
faculty may pick up tickets for re-
served seating in Hill Auditorium.

News Analysis
BERLIN (CPS) - The Paradox
of being a "radical student" is
that you have to belong to a
university which almost automa-
tically make you un-radical. At
the same time, the university is
considered the ideal place to "ra-
dicalize" others.
This paradox has been especial-
ly numbing in Germany, whose
public is still going through a
"thank God we're not extremists
any more" stage. Most people are
scared to death of radicalism on
the right or left, including most
of the faculty in even the most
"progressive" universities.
Until recently, the students
thought the Free University of
Berlin would be a good compro-
mise. The teachers were young
and internationally recruited, the
students were shrewd and there
was plenty of money. But it wasn't
good enough.
Just over two months ago 2,000
Free University students met to
begin a "Critical University," to
fill what they called the "political
vacuum" in German student life
and to get out of the "radical
student" paradox.
'Concrete Utopia'
The Critical University is a
"concrete utopia to give continu-
ing and relevant political instruc-
tion," according to the :University
of Hamburg student newpaper.
So the 'Critical University is
really a politically-oriented Free
University. Professors are invited
into classes as participants rather

than lecturers. The students con-
trol the curriculum and content.
Courses have names like "History
of Revolution" and "Advertising
and Educational Reform." There
are no degrees, and the students
contribute what they can to help
keep it going.
The critical students meet in un-
used buildings of the "regular"
universities. They are represented
overall by a group called "Allge-
meine Studentenausschuss" or
"Asta." Asta is a fairly recent
left-wing student union that be-
gan at the Free University, and its
chief job is to strongarm the var-
ious state treasuries into giving
money to Germany's six Critical
Universities. They plan on the
traditional state commitment to
education, and are successful be-
cause they represent a significant
and vocal number of students.
The Critical University of Ber-
lin didn't so much grow out of
a desire for student power as a
desire to make radicals - the
paradox once again. It wasn't that
the established German univer-
sities had too much power --- no
one interested in politics took
them too seriously - but that
radicals can't grow in a seedbed
of liberalism.
Fundamental Changes
The Hamburg prospectus for its
Critical University says in part:
" . . . here is a chance to make
fundamental changes i n t h e
h i t h e r t o futureless knowledge
market of the Establishment."
ket is OK as long as it's anti-
That is to say, the knowledge mar-

&adicals I
Establishment. The Critical Uni-
versity is dedicated to breaking
the government monopoly on
The issues confronting the Ger-
man radicals are much the same
as those in America: the over-
riding concern is the rise of the
military-industral complex. To
investigate the burgeoning power
of the Generals in Germany, the
CU in Hamburg recently invited
"Der Spiegel" military editor Carl-
Gideon von Claer to a "class" and
mercilessly pumped him for infor-
mation on the structure of Ger-
many's Armed Forces and their
covert and overt relations with
German businessmen.
The Critical University seems to
be more an anarchist organiza-
tion than any kind of hard-line
socialist or communist one. Cer-
tainly there are communists in it,
and everyone says he's a socialist,
but there is more a commitment
to "general revolution" than to
something like the specific over-
throw of Germany's government.
This may be because even com-
munist West Germans can't stom-
ach Walter Ulbright - East Ger-
many's Party boss.
The idea of the Critical or
Counter - University has been
adopted in some form in Berlin,
Munster, Frankfurt, Hamburg,
Mainz and Heidelberg in Ger-
many, as well as in Amsterdam
and London. The idea is sure to
blossom in other European cities,
and is therefore certain to guar-
antee broad-based "student pow-
er" all over this continent.

Have you always wanted a rice paper temple rubbing?
Just to refresh your memory, these are thin sheets of white rice
paper that have been laid against carvings on temples in Thailand,
and then rubbed with chalk to make a lasting impression of the fig-
ures. These are guaranteed to liven up even the dullest apartments.
While you're at it, why not complement your garbage by throwing it
in attractive wicker waste baskets from Hong Kong and China-so
pretty you'll hate to contaminate them. If you like to be distinctive,
we have delightful incense, in both stick and pellet form, to lend an
exotic atmosphere to any joint.
Nothing to wear? A Mexican serape jacket will go with almost
anything. If you have been looking for distinctive earrings, your search
is over-we have hundreds of earrings from all over the world.

Some people get experience
in a job.
Other people get older.
There's a big difference. And
it all depends on where you
work, and with whom you
work. You can start some
place that has all the proper
systems engineering creden-
tials - significant contracts,
modern physical plant, and
the usual fringe benefits --
and find yourself a couple of
years later, just a couple of
years behind,
Or, you can come to a place
like MITRE and get experi-
ence. And grow. We have the
credentials, of course. (We
happen to think they're the
best.) But we have something
more. An attitude. We want
you to get the best systems
experience in the business.
We want to share what we
know with you, want you to
absorb it as fast as you can.
The quicker you grasp things,
the quicker things get done.

The more experience you get,
the faster you grow.
And that's to our mutual
