BAM ends class strike, accepts
regental resolution on demands.

(Continued from Page 1)
At 8:20 p.m. Fabre entered the
room and told the assembled peo-
ple that the Regents had released
a statement and that BAM leaders
were "trying to decipher it." He
promised to be back within an
hour with BAM leaders' reactions.
The crowd, which by that time
had reached about 800 people, re-
acted with groans to the unex-
pected delay. Many left tempor-
arily until singer Chuck Jackson

Speaking about reports of al-
leged reprisals against strikers,
Fabre explained that students
could either go through normal
channels in response to charges
or to "an impartial hearing of-
ficer" to be appointed by Fleming.
Fabre said the University hired
a Chicago recruiter and would
come close to, if not meet, a goal
of 50 Chicano students by next
fall.

taken in the future to accomplish
this.
"The people of the State of
Michigan, who so heavily subsi-
dize the education of every stu-
dent at the University, have a
right to expect that an atmos-
phere free of coercion will pre-
vail," the resblution said..
The administration's statement
last Sunday night, which is ex-
pected to form the basis for the
minority enrollment plan, indicat-
ed that in reference to BAM's de-
mand for an increase in the :black
enrollment by 900 students by fall,
1971, the University "anticipates"
such an increase.
Referring to BAM's demand for
additional recruiters at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels,
the administration's statement
pledged an additional nine persons
on the undergraduate level, and
three persons on the graduate
level. It was unclear how many of
the additional twelve staff nem-
bers would ,be recruiters and how
many would act as assistants.

the enrollment of at least 50 Chi-
cano 'students by this fall.
-BAM's demand for the crea-
tion of a University-wide appeal
board to rule on the adequacy of
financial aid grants to students;
-BAM demand for a revamp-
ing of the Parent's Confidential
Statement used in determining the
amount of aid allocated to each
disadvantaged student;
-Organizational and financial
arrangements for the Center for
Afro-American Studies; and
-Organizational and financial
arrangements for a supportive
services program that would aid
new black students in adjusting
to the University.
Referring to these points, the
regental resolution stated, "The
Regents have carefully reviewed
with the President the extent of
his discussions with members of
the Black Action Movement, and
find that these discussions have
been aimed at implementing the
Regental decisions of March 19,
1970."
At the news conference, Fleming,
said that the rumors of his pos-
sible resignation over the minor-
ity enrollment dispute were "a
matter of some amusement" both
to himself and the Regents.
"It was discussed neither by

them nor me except in a teasing
sense," the president said..
The minority enrollment plan
adopted by the Regents on Moorch
19 established a goal of 10 per
cent black enrollment by 1973-74,
but committed funds which viould
guarantee an enrollment of be-
tween five and seven per cent.
In their resolution yesterday,
the Regents did not commit addi-
tional funds toward achieving the
10 pe rcent goal, but expressed as-
surance that the funds allocated
from the budgets of the individual
schools and colleges would result
in the University's enrolling 'the
full 10 per cent.
"By cooperation of the various
deans and *the governing facul-
ties, funding of the 10 per cent
admissions goal has been assured,"
the regental resolution stated.
On the question of reprisals by
the University against participants
in the class strike, the resolution
stated, "The Regents are aware
that there will doubtless be cases
arising! out of some of the inci-
dents which have accompanied the
strike. Amnesty in such 'cases is
unwarranted."
However, the resolution author-
ized President Fleming to "make
available the option of outside
hearing officers," if the subjects
of any charges request this.

ience and standing ovations as
two dozen people began dancing.
One girl jumped on the stage
and danced with Jackson as the
emotionally-aroused crowd joined
in singing "Aquarius" and sev-
eral other songs.
With audience members holding
hands with each other as they
sung "Stand By Me," the BAM
negotiating team entered at 9:40
p.m.
Climbing on the rostrum, they
received a standing ovation as
they joined in the singing and
dancing. They joyfully embraced
each other and some audience
members as the crowd went wild.
Fabre, receiving applause for
over a minute, addressad the group,
on some of the =specifics of the
Regental resolution and the ear-
lier negotiations between BAM and,
Fleming.
He said the University h a d
agreed to demands for nine under-
graduate recruiters, additional
graduate recruiters, and a staff
member to recruit black faculty.
Fabre added that an appeal
board to rule on financial aid
would be set up by the end of theI
semester and that the Parents
Confidential Statement would be
revised.
Although BAM requests for ad-
ditional funding for the Afro-
American studies program were
slightly cut, Fabre said appropria-
tions proposed by the administra-
tion were workable.
"As far as increasing black en-
rollment to at least 10 per cent
by 1973-74 the University acquies-
ed to the demand," Fabre told the
crowd.
Fabre also told the gathering
that the Regents had refused to
collect $3 per year in student fees
for the Martin Luther King Fundf
despite passage of such a proposal
in the Student Government Coun-
cil selection last week.
He announced that BAM would
establish its own fund for that
purpose.

ourselves," he said.

WE CANNOT VIEW THESE ACTS IN ISOLATION
We are disturbed by the physical damage, personal violence and inconvenience that have
resulted from these incidents but more so by the profoundly tragic con f I i cts of our age that have
driven some individuals and groups to perform such acts.
Our colleagues' focus on a four point program for law and order, pointedly ignores this
context. We feel the response to these disruptions must take into account the difficult and complex
settings and issues which are their ultimate causes.
Because these issues are of such critical importance, not only to the University but to the
society at large,
