EDITOR'S NOTE: The following
statement was issued Thursday by
the Committee on Communications
Media to explain its decision to
open a majority of its meetings.
The committee had originally de-
cided to hold closed meetings, but
then worked out this agreement
with Student Government Council,
which had protested the closed
meetings. Both groups accepted this
agreement at their meetings on
The Committee on Communi-
cations Media believes its en-
deavors can be successful only if
all segments of the University
community have trust that the
committee is proceeding (i) with
integrity, and (ii) in a manner
reasonably calculated both to
acquaint the committee with all
relevant facts and to promote the
free exchange of ideas. Trust as
to one but not as to the other
could easily jeopardize acceptance
of our ultimate findings,
To both ends, the committee
plans ultimately to publish a fi-
nal report which will include not
just bare-bone proposals but also
the facts. and reasoning which
led to its conclusions. Included
also will be any dissents of in-
dividual committee members,
Scholar Claims Christianity
Began as Drug-Taking Cult
LONDON (P) - A Hebrew-lan-
guage scholar unraveling the
Dead Sea Scrolls suggested yes-
terday that Christianity's roots
lay in a drug-taking cult and that
the New Testament was "just a
cover story" for it.
He said the Old Testament pro-
phets, when they saw visions,
were probably "taking a trip" on
LSD or something similar.
John Marco Allegro, lecturer on
Old Testament and intertesta-
mental studies at Manchester
tniversity, said of his latest stu-
dies: "The church is going to be
scourged as never before. Nothing
so far revealed by the Scrolls has
had the effect that this is going
The 44-year-old humanist pro-
fessor, who started- out as a Me-
thodist lay preacher studying for
the ministry, has pored over the
Dead Sea Scrolls ever since their
discovery, beginning in the late
He said in an interview that
right from the start the light his
researches threw on the pre-
Christian Essene sect raised
doubts about the basic assump-
tions of much Biblical scholar-
"Now my views are more cri-
tical than ever about the New
Testament story," Allegro added.
"It is no more than a cover story
for a vegetation cult, involving
the use of drugs of earlier times."
The purposes of the drug-tak-
ing cult, according to Allegro,
was to seek release of the soul
from the body so that it could
wing off Into the future and re-
"Here is your speaking with
tongues," he said. "Its priests
and prophets were dope pushers,
if you like, but they kept their
secrets within their own circle.
South American Indians are do-
ing much the same thing today.
They are using much the same
drugs. And only their priests have
knowledge of these things."
Allegro thinks the church ins-
understood its origins when it
took the New Testament at face
"The Bible is a literary work,"
he said, "and not a religious or
historical work. It's got to be ac-
cepted on that -basis.
"If you can lay bare the real
purpose behind the Old and New
Testament stories, then the whole
foundation of the church must be
shattered. They'll have to think
again. Figures like David and So-
lomon, Samson and Delilah, are
just myths. The very possibility
that Jesus ever existed is open to
In Allegro's view there was an
element of purposeful conceal-
ment in much of what was writ-
"The New Testament was a co-
ver document meant to circulate
among some strange groups at
the time they were under attack
from the Roman establishment,"
he said. "Now we are going to
understand why the Romans were
so* active against a politically
slanted, drug-taking cult, menac-
ing the well-being .of the state."
Allegro believes the current
trend of youth-witness the long-
haired Beatles pop group - to
seek out Indian mystics is a
throwback to the very early days.
"It's an attempt, when life gets
too much, to go winging off into
a wonderful future."
whether student or professor, and
these need not be limited to sub-
stance. Any member would be
free to claim, for example, that
as to a given matter the commi't-
tee's inquiry was superficial.
While this type of public ex-
posure has long provided the
means by which the public meas-
ures the validity of decisions by
our appellate courts, no doubt
those interested in our study
would have even greater reason
to- trust the committee's integrity
if it also followed the practice of
doing all its work in the open.
But to make such an absolute
commitment in the interest of
that one goal (an image of integ-
rity) would create distrust in the
community regarding the pros-
pect of attaining the other goal.
At least the committee itself be-
lieves that such a sweeping com-
mitment would impinge substan-
tially on the likelihood it will be
exposed to all relevant facts and
all relevant worthwhile ideas.
This committee needs to ask a lot
of people a lot of questions. But
there is risk, if all questions must
be asked in public sessions, that
committee members may refrain
from asking some questions
which should be asked, their fear
being that a candid answer might
unfairly embarrass the witness'
or vertical. Also to be remember-
ed is the fact that the committee
is absolutely dependent upon the
cooperation of all witnesses. None
need testify at all and none need
answer any particular question.
The foregoing difficulty can fair-
ly be characterized as a personnel
The committee is anxious to
reconcile the two previously men-
tioned and sometimes competing
goals in a manner which will
maximize trust on both counts.
However, at this embryo stage it
cannot tell where its lines of in-
quiry may lead it. In consequence,
at this point in time it can do
nothing more than express a phi-
losophy which will govern its pro-,
cedures and indicate the tech-
nique by which it can efficiently,
and hopefully with fairness, im-
plement that philosophy,
Normally our sessions will be
open. However, the chairman will
be expected to convene *in exe-
cutive session whenever he be-
lieves that professional relation-
ships (lateral or vertical) might
otherwise significantly impair the
committee's chance to obtain vi-
tal information or a valued point
of view. Confidences once obtain-
ed will be preserved as to the
Of course, toward the conclu-
sion of the committee's effort, it
will become necessary for its
members to meet together in pri-
vate for the purpose of putting
its conclusions and recommenda-
tions on paper. The drafting of a
document is not a function which
can effectively be performed in
any other way, a fact that is well
known not only to courts and
legislative committees, but also
to newspapers that produce edi-
torials signed collectively by "the
Editors." Not one of these bodies
exposes its preliminary, tentative
drafts to publication. Finally,
SACUA, which initiated this stu-
dy, requested not the tentative,
perhaps awkwardly phrased ideas
of individual members. It asked a
"committee" to submit its fully
matured collective judgment.
The committee hopes that the'
foregoing statement adequately
reconciles the competing goals
and believes it is responsive to
the concerns which have been ex-
pressed in diverse quarters. To
those who expressed such con-
cerns, the committee is indebted,
for their interest stimulated the
committee to think out anew the
procedures by which it ought to
