CAMPAIGN ROUNDUP:

McCarthy, Kennedy Face'
LBJ Forces in Indiana

By The Associated Press
Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy said.
yesterday he had taken steps to
enter his name in both the Indiana
and Florida primaries.
The Minnesota Democrat thus
will have a face-to-face showdown
with Sen. Robert F. Kennedy,
who was to file his entry last
night for the Hoosier state primary
May 7.
McCarthy, who is facing Presi-
dent Johnson in the Wisconsin
primary April 2, said he also had
sent papers to be filed in the Flor-
ida primary May 28.
Papers entering Indiana Gov.
Roger D. Branigin as a stand-in

for President Johnson were expect-
ed to be filed this afternoon.
Branigin said he agreed with
recent statements of Presidents
Truman and Eisenhower that to
show "division and discord at
home" during the Vietnam war is
"bordering upon treason."
Conflict
Meanwhile, in Milwaukee, Rich-
ard Goodwin, long-time Kennedy
ally who has become a high of-
ficial in Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy's
organization, said yesterday it
would be "very hard" for him to
stay with McCarthy when the
campaign moves on to primaries
where McCarthy and Sen. Ro-
bert F. Kennedy clash directly.
In Florida, Democrats qualified
two national convention slates to-
day - one strongly favoring Pres-
ident Johnson and another pledged
to Sen. George A. Smathers.
Johnson Slate
Allan Milledge, a Miami attor-
ney and chairman of the McCarthy
slate, called the Smathers group
a "masquerade" for people sup-
porting Johnson.
"The delegates from our slate
will never cast one single vote for
Lyndon Baines Johnson," Milledge
said.
If McCarthy fails in his presi-
dential bid at the convention, Mil-
ledge said, the McCarthy delega-

tion would swing to Sen. Robert
F. Kennedy of New York.
Besides Smathers, a strong sup-
porter of Johnson in Congress, the
regular party included on its list
of delegates Florida Atty. Gen.
Earl Faircloth, running for the
U.S. Senate as an advocate of
Johnson's conduct of the Viet-
nam war, and former Gov. LeRoy
Collins, Faircloth's primary op-
ponent, a former under secretary
of Commerce and once a racial
troubleshooter for the Johnson ad-
ministration.
Nixon Hits Dems
Richard Nixon, faced with a po-
tentially heavy Republican cross-
over vote in the election next Tues-
day, told a Sheboygan audience
on his final full day of Wisconsin
campaigning that "It would be
very easy to stand before an au-
dience such as this and say, as
do the two Democratic opponents
of Lyndon Johnson, that the way
to get out of Vietnam is just end
it, whatever the cost may be."
"I can say that and many might
cheer, for the moment. But my
friends, I say that too often in
the past we have found that
American diplomats have lost at
the conference tables what our
fighting men have been fighting
for on the battle field and we're
not going to let it happen here."

Anti-War
Riot Closes
Madrid U
MADRID (A') - Police clashed
yesterday on the campus of Ma-
drid University with students
protesting U.S. policy in Vietnam.
The incidents led to an order clos-
ing theduniversity indefinitely.
The disorders started at noon
when police entered buildings to
tear down posters attacking the
Vietnam war and teaching regu-
lations. By midafternoon, helmet-
ed riot police, some on horseback
and swinging whips, were battling
students at various points on the
campus.
Students at the law building
erected barriers to try to prevent
the police from entering. About
200 other students staged a sit-in
at the school of political and
economic sciences and barred
doors and windows with heavy
wire.
About 20 mounted police charged
into a group of shouting students
waiting for a bus. Students re-
taliated by stoning police vehicles.
Reports from Sevilla said riot
police battled an estimated 1,500
university students demonstrating
to protest recent detentions of
students. Police finally dispersed
the stone throwing groups.

By HARVEY WASSERMAN
Daily Editorial Director, 1966-'67
CHICAGO (CPS) - With the
entry of Eugene McCarthy and
Robert Kennedy into the race for
the Democratic Presidential nom-
ination, general interest in the
Chicago convention this summer
grows each day.
But New Left interest in the
convention was born long before
the race for the nomination
gained its semblance of conflict.
Debate within the New Left
over whether or not to go to Chi-
cago to demonstrate and what
forms the demonstrations should
take has been going on for some
time. At least one group, the
newly formed Youth Internation-
al Party (YIP) will definitely be
in attendance.
The new party, popularly
known as the Yippees, has an of-
fice in New York and is setting
one up in Chicago. The Yippees,
according to one of their leaders,
Jerry Rubin, will establish a com-
munity in Chicago's Grant Park.
"The New Left invented the
teach-in, the hippies invented the
live-in and the Yippees have in-
vented the do-in," he says.
Each day a pot will be passed
for money with which to buy
food; there will be bands (Coun-
try Joe and the Fish, Arlo Guth-
rie, the Fugs among others), Tim-

othy Leary, Allen Ginsburg, and
many others who have indicated
that they will attend; the Beatles
have been invited. The, Yippies
will hold a press conference an-
nouncing an end to the war, will
nominate a pig made of vegetables
for president and eat him.
The Yippees' idea is the dem-
onstration of a cultural revolu-
tion, the illustration that com-
munity is possible, even in Chi-
cago, and the introduction to a
new and healthier style of life.
Other groups of the New Left
have been opposing a mass con-
frontation in Chicago largely on
a political level somewhat apart
from the substance of the Yippee
approach. They argue that such
activities are not only unneces-
sarily physically dangerous, but
might well be turned against the
radicals by Johnson forces or
might be used by the liberal peace
forces of Robert Kennedy and
Eugene McCarthy.
Jones and Spiegel argue that it
would be politically safer as well
as more productive to concentrate
on draft resistance and local or-
ganizing on specific political is-
sues rather than removing the
radical base to a mass Chicago
confrontation.

-Al Blixt
Bodypainting Ann Arbor 8mm F.F. Winners

We the undersigned students of the University of Michigan
respectfully request that the University of Michigan History De-
partment alter its decision to offer a course on the "History of
the Negro American" announced on February 16, 1968, in the
following manner:
1. We believe that the course should be called the "History of.
the Negro American" and offered as a separate course,
because it has been effaced from the history textbook in
the United States of America, therefore, we ask that the
University of Michigan Department of History concede the
"History of the Negro American" and teach the course until
the "History of the Negro American" is totally integrated
into American History textbooks.
2. We believe that the course should - be offered beginning
August 1968 at the very latest. There is no reason to delay
it until the winter of 1969; by January of 1969, the His-
tory Department will already have had over 2 years to
prepare for the course;
3. We believe that the course should be a 3 or 4 hour, non
pre-requisite course opened to graduate and undergraduate
students for credit toward a degee.
4. We urge that the History Department take the opportunity
to add a qualified Historian to the faculty who has spe-
cialized in the "History of the Negro American."
5. We urge that the History Department take this opportunity
to comply with the Greene report and appoint a qualified
Negro professor from tke list of 14 (9' Negroes and 5
Whites) names submitted to Dr. W. B. Willcox by Richard
H. Ross February 1, 1967. (see attachment).
6. We believe that the University could procure the services
here to, if the University is unable to recruit someone from

The original list given to Professor Willcox February 1, 1967
is as follows:
