Grambling College Suspends Students. CALLED 'WHITEWASH'

-Improve unsatisfactory con-I
ditions in the realm of adminis-
trative policy and see that the
academics get primary stress.
-Perform his duty without pre-
judice and despotism and elimi-
nate his paternalistic views of stu-
dents.
-See that students' funds are
handled honestly.
-S t r e s s political awareness
among faculty members and stu-
dents, "thus providing a check!
on the white power structure in
Baton Rouge."
Student body President Willie
Zanders said before his suspen-
sion, "This is not black power.
All we want is an education and
we aren't getting it. You cannot
get an education now at Gram-
bling."
Zanders also criticized President
Jones for trying to play down the
significance of the student pro-
tests. "In spite of the demonstra-
tions being non-violent, the pres-
ident of the college has pegged
us as a group of 150 radicals when'
we have actually had as many
as 2,500 and 3,000 participants,"
he said.
Students at the Homecoming
game Saturday chanted, "Presi-
dent told a lie, President told a
lie," referring to a statement byI
Jones that only 150 students were
involved.

Dean of Instruction E. L. Cole,
whom Thomas describes as one
of Grambling's "truly fine scho-
lars," expressed doubt that the
students were really concerned
about "academic excellence."
"They want to turn an aca-
demia into a jungle," he charged.
Cole further termed the ath-
letics question a "whipping boy"

and added that there is an over-
emphasis on athletics all across
the country. "Grambling doesn't
emphasize athletics any more
than other colleges in the South
or elsewhere in the country."
He said Grambling has 80 ath-
letic scholarships and 80 merit
scholarships, plus a few other
partial, specialized stipends.

A large tuna fish net drapes down
from'the ceiling to the floor where
colored lights flash on and off.
One side of the room is the meet-
ing place of visitors who con-
gregate to talk, get high, or play
their psychedelic instruments.
Don is soft-spoken and seems
to always be smiling. His judg-
ment is considered wisdom by
many and his somewhat humerous
facsimile of being a wise-old peer
breaks down into an odd reality
when many students accept his

word blindly. He is apathetic to
government, administration of the
school, classes and movements.
His concern is the sole cultiva-,
tion of his thing, and for those
now at Antioch he will be remem-
bered as having achieved the ulti-
mate his society could afford.
"We just want to live our life,"
Don told me. "We have every-
thing we need here."
As I walked through the stu-
dent union for the last time I
noticed the humerous quips print-
ed all over the walls, doors, and
w i n d o w s. Sometimes they're
ignored. On the student govern-
ment's blackboard was the phrase:,
"Today the Edsel, tomorrow the
world."
I quickly jotted down every one
I had time to see which included
phrases from Mao, "discipline be-
comes philosophy," or "the end
is at Antioch." But there is only
one which still remains easily
remembered :
Printed in small red letters
just above a table in the room of
Antioch's student newspaper is
the phrase, "Blessed are the
meek, for they shall perish."

While it let the 'ISC off scot
free, the commission attacked
NSA, particularly on the grounds
that NSA officers only announced
their intentions to sever the ties
after Ramparts magazine revealed
the relationship.
NSA President Ed Schwartz
said he had not seen the report,
but said that NSA did not reveal
its CIA ties sooner- because it was
trying "to protect innocent peo-
ple, including some of those in
the ISC."
The commission report also said
that any CIA influence on the
ISC probably came through for-
mer NSA officers, such as Gar-
vey. It also named former NSA

In a statement released before
the ISC report, the IUS called it
a "whitewash." It noted that the
commissio nmembers - who are
from Great Britain, Costa Rica,
Ireland, Ghana, Malaya, and Bel-
gium - are all from the ISC's
leading group. It also accused ISC
Secretary General Ram Kahkina
of using his ex offcio membership
on the commission "to secure
'satisfactory' results."
