The undersigned are 27 members of the faculty and 349
students at the University of Michigan Law School.
We are opposed to the present policy of the United States
in Viet Nam. We do not believe that our nation has any controlling
commitments which require us to continue to pursue that policy.
We believe that the United States cannot by acceptable
means succeed in its attempt to secure and maintain the control of
}he Saigon government over the territory of South Viet Nam by
military force, and that the continuing expansion of our military
involvement in the service of that end creates an unacceptable
risk of world war.
We believe that the terrible violence the war is inflicting
on the people of Viet Nam is destroying the society we seek to
We believe that it is wrong and dangerous in these circum-
stances to continue to subordinate desperately needed domestic
programs to the increasing demands this war is imposing on our
nation's resources and moral energies.

We reject the suggestion that opposition to the present
policy necessarily implies advocacy of a precipitate withdrawal
of United States forces or an abandonment of allies in South Viet
We do believe that political and military de-escalation are
essential steps towards ending the fighting in Vet Nam.
We believe that our country should take urgent steps, in-
cluding a prompt reduction in the scope of land and dir operations
by American forces, to signify our intention to limit our political
and military aims in South Viet Nam. We believe that such steps
are an essential precondition for the release of those political
forces, both within South Vie+ Nam and internationally, which seek
peaceful compromise and the initiation of genuine negotiations.
We- believe that lawyers can play a particularly significant
role in showing that opposition to the present policy is not limited
to a few extremists but comes from many moderate citizens at all
levels of society and of all political views. We therefore urge
lawyers who share our concern to work for a change in that policy
in every legitimate way they can, including, where otherwise
appropriate, the suppos t of candidates committed to such a
