Court May Hear
Tuition Test Case
Submit Statement Signed by 93
At Rally in Support of Resisters
The Des Moines. Iowa, Circuit Court of Appeals is ex-
pected to announce "within a matter of days" that it will
agree to hear a test case challenging the constitutionality
of state colleges or universities charging higher tuition for
*out-of-state students.
The decision of the court will be binding on all colleges
in the nation unless contested.
The basic claim of the case is that "the Constitution
requires a state to treat American from other states the
same as its own citizens in matters of admissions and
tuition in its colleges and universities to the extent that the
" state has room for non-resident students."
Stephen M. Johns, a junior in law at the University of
Iowa, and his attorney, Prof. Charles Clark of the Detroit
College of Law, are carrying on the battle which has lasted
for two years and will near its most critical point next week
in the Court of Appeais.

Clerks at the office assured the marchers that the state-

quarters in Lansing as the demonstrators insisted. But after
the march broke up the clerks said they did not know if
the statement would be forwapded.

said. But he declined to com-

But until a final decision is
reached on the selection of a
candidate, the candidate himselfj
is not usually informed of his

From the criteria suggested by
the faculty, the committee has

found itself in the position of
seeking an ideal candidate "an
administrator, a scholar and a
gentleman, perfect in all re-
spects," Crane said.
However, both GA and SGC feel
that students should have some
role in this difficult process of
selecting a new dean. Although
there has been no official nom-

groups, GA pit "a strongly word-

manding "full and equal voting

ticist; Prof. Bert Garskof of Mich-
igan State University and Citizens
for New Politics candidate for
Congress; and Mrs. Karen Daen-
zer, '70, Voice chairman.
Rev. Gaede referred to a Selec-
tive Service memo on "channel-
ing" from April 1967 which in-
dicated that the U.S. government
is achieving the same kind of
direction of young people's lives
as in totalitarian states.
Real Support
Duboff called for "real support"
of Spock. He said yallies are in-
sufficient and people must take
risks. "I mean staking your job,
your future, by putting yourself
in the same position as Spock and
Coffin. Go out in the community
and break the law if you feel you
have to.'
Garskof urged dispelling the
myth that protesters should be
polite with government officials
who, in Garskof's terms, "are mur-
derers and will be hung sooner
or later."
Professor Post called Dr. Spock
"the epitome of nonviolence." He
urged all draft resisters to retain
non-violent techniques as their
most effective weapons. He also
mentioned the course in non-
violent techniques planned at
Guild House this morning.
Mrs. Daenzer, who suggested the
march, spoke of the indictment
as "the beginning-a very small
beginning-of a middle class war."
