"Father Groppi is the white
man's best friend while the mayor
and councilmen of Milwaukee are
his worst enemies," claimed Fa-
ther Neuberger Sunday night at
Newman Center during the second
part. of the "Trilogy on Racism
and Poverty" sponsored by the
Social Action Committee.
Neuberger, of the St. Boniface
Parish, discussed the issues spec-
ifically related to the open hous-
ing marches that have been going
on in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for
the past 70 days. Groppi has
organized Negro youth into Youth
Commandos who have been partic-
ipating in the marches in an ef-
fort to have an open housing
ordinance passed there.
"We are trying to prove to the
Black Community that social
change is possible through non-
violent means while civil leaders
are trying to prove that justice
can be gained only through vio-
lence," clarified Neuberger.
The civil authorities have ac-
complished this situation by re-
fusing to listen to Negro demands
and putting off the issues. More
important, Milwaukee "represents

As Peace Corps Week began yes-
terday at the University, returned
volunteers currently pursuing
graduate degrees expressed enthu-
siam about the Peace Corps pro-
grams in which they had partici-
pated. Many, however, have reser-
vations about the value of con-
tinuing their formal education.
Stanley Bendet, Grad, is a typi-
cal example. Having served as a
volunteer in India, Bendet feels
discouraged thus far with his
"You can't get a decent job
without a masters degree," he ex-
plained. Bendet feels, though, that
the Social Work School, in which
he is now enrolled, has little to
offer him in terms of practical ex-
"After all," said Bendet, "when
I was in India, I was a social work-
er in conditions infinitely worse
than Detroit's innner-city where
I am now doing my field work."
Returned volunteers in general
are disenchanted with the paper
work involved in University classes.
They feel that after being in the
field, and actually helping people,
there is little use in writing papers
about social theory.
However, Peace Corps veterans
are willing to make the concession
to American society and get a
diploma from a university.
"Quite frankly," explained Ben-
det, "at least being in school might
keep one out of the Army."
The University ranks third
among the schools that returned
volunteers have chosen for grad-
uate work. Peace Corps veterans
cite the diversified graduate de-
partments which have many for-
eign languge and culture programs
and an outstanding school of social
work as reasons for their prefer-
ence for the University.
Since many Peace Corps volun-
teers plan to pursue the same area
as they were involved in during
their time in the Peace Corps, they
have entered the University to
specialize in that field.

plete his term as chairman. He
said it was a personal decision
centering on factors he declined
at this point to name.

but as soon as they are known, I
will make a decision," Ferency

cooperation between Negroes and
whites," pointed out Neuberger.

would give "backbone to the
cowardly white who would be af-
fraid not to allow the Negro to
buy the house." And integrated
housing would give Negroes and
whites the opportunity to assoc-
iate in normal circumstances, and
learn to like each other.
Referring to several personal
situations where he was denied
facilities because of his Negro
companions, Neuberger asserted
that he did not know if he could

Alfred Lilienthal, noted expert
on Middle East affairs, will speak
here today on "Middle East Issues
-Past and Present." He will speak
at 8:00 p.m. in the Union Ball-
room. Many of his previous works,
including "What Price Israel,"'?1
'There Goes the Middle East," and
"The Other Side of the Coin"
have stirred much controversy over
political affairs in the Middle
Lilienthal's extensive travels
in the Middle East and his own
political expertise have led him to
many statements on the prob-
lems facing the Arab and Israeli
worlds as they exist today.
The lecture here is being spon-
sored by the University chapter
of the Organization of Arab' Stu-
dents and the Ecumenical Campus
Center. It is open to the public
and no admission will be charged.
Ferency said his decision on$
when to leave the chairmanship
had no connection with a possible
presidential bid by McCarthy.
The Michigan party chairman
has called for Democrats to ap-
proach the 1968 party convention
with an open mind about who will
be the nominee for president.
