Daily News Analysis
A violent leadership struggle
poses the greatest threat to
the Ann Arbor leftist move-
ment since Voice Political
Party - a group which ori-
ginally ran candidates for SGC
and tended mainly to campus
issues - affiliated itself with
national SDS in March of 1963.
This year's split, which came
to the fore at Voice's second
meeting of the year last Tues-
day amid furious debate and
extreme tensions, is perhaps
symptomatic of the pains of re-
organizing on the left that
have affected radical groups
across the 'country. Since Co-
lumbia radicals defined new
strategies-and, to some ex-
tent, new issues - last spring,,
militancy of politics and tac-
tics have divided the left
throughout the nation.l
In Ann Arbor, the split

ship b
(which will come to a head this
Tuesday at a meeting in the
Union) could -almost represent
a play-script for similar dis-
putes in other chapters. The
issues, the arguments - in
some cases, even the faces -
are similar.
There are two opposing fac-
tions in the Voice dispute, both
clearly delineated. The first
side, which has identified itself
as the "Radical Caucus," con-
sists primarily of past and pre-
sent Voice leadership and most
of past years' consistent rank-
and-file. At its head are Eric
Chester (who was first elected
chairman of the organization
at the meeting in which Thor-
son and Goodman challenged
the group's existing structure),
Gary Rothberger (another ex-
chairman), and Bruce Levine.
Their constituency ranges from
undergraduates who recognize
the three as campus radical
"leaders", to "old-timers" who

Prof essors'


are currently aligned with
them because of personal loyal-
ty as much as political agree-
The other side, labeling it-
self "The Jesse James Gang",
and adopting a far more mili-
tant approach to leftist politics
is headed by local radicals
from the stgff of the Children's
Community School and some
new-to-Ann Arbor leftists af-
filiated with the Radical Edu-
cation Project (REP), the Ann
Arbor-based educational arm
of national SDS.
The Community School's
Bill Ayers sees the dispute as
centering around the current
orientation of Voice} toward
"student power" politics.
"Student power is not a good
thing," Ayers says.
"It is based on a tight no-
tion of democracy; it isolates
the University. You allow stu-
dents to decide on the lives of
blacks, on the lives of the

Vietnamese, on the war itself."
He goes on to cite Voice's
adherence to the student pow-
er doctrine as what killed last
year's drive to end classified
research at the University.
-'Voice employed the typ-
ically defensive - not agres-
sive - campaign last year, us-
ing traditional education cam-
paigns, teach-ins, Daily arti-
clas, and SGC resolutions. Then,
the engineers came out and de-
feated Voice in a referendum."
Chester points out that the
decision to support a referen-
dum came only after sit-ins,
disruption (of a meeting with
University research officials
and a representative of the
U.S. Navy), and other tactics
It is at the point when every-
thing else fails, Ayers feels,
when radicals must "make
value judgements concerning
which rights become import-
ant. The Vietnamese's right to

not eat napalm is far more
sacred than the students' right
to decide."
In this vein, Ayers and other
members of the "James Gang"
take what they feel is a more
aggressive tack than that
normally employed by Voice.
The politics of confrontation is
the doctrine; "aggressive ac-
tion" is the tactic.
Mentioned as possible tactics
--along the lines of "guerrilla
theater" activity which has
become popular with the left-
would be the invasion of a
classroom and its "liberation"
from its teacher.
"If we went into a classroom
and told the teacher to leave
and started teaching the class
the way it ought to be taught."
Ayers says, "the students would
support it. The y.oung today
have a consciousness; it shows
in their music, their sex, their
dope. Confrontation brings out
this consciousness."

DURHAM, N.C.-It was a beautiful afternoon here yes- r

gentle, and the temperature was up.

that had hopes of using the game as a stepping-stone to a
winiing season.
The score was 31-10, uch to the amazement of the 22,000
spectators sprinkled throughout the stands who expected a
mediocre Michigan team to fall before their Blue Devils, as
had every other Big Ten team ever to appear here before. PE

TThree prominent figures in the
civil rights struggle will appear
today in the University Activities
Center's first program of Con-
troversy '68.
Adam Clayton Powell, former
Congressman; Julian Bond, Geor
gia state legislatoi;' and Dick
Gregory, entertainer and activist
will speak on "Black Power in the
U.S." at 2 p.m. in Hill Aud.
Powell was expelled by the
House of Representatives in 1965
over his alleged mishandling of
public funds. He was chairman
of the House education com-
mittee. Bond recently led the
challenge to the regular Georgia
delegation at the national Demo-
cratic convention. Gregory is
known as a humorous writer and
speaker as well as an activist
against racism in the U.S.
The three men will also appear
at a press conference at 10:45 a.m.
in the Union.

Daily News Analysis
Some members of the Democratic
Party are already looking beyond No-
vember-to a time when they will no
longer be in the White House.
Many of the key organizers and work-
ers for the anti-Administration drives of
Sens. McCarthy, Kennedy and McGov-
ern fully expect the Republican can-
didate, Richard M. Nixon, to be presi-
dent for the next four or eight years.
With this expectation in mind, they
are either supporting Humphrey with
reservations, actively working to defeat
him through fourth party or write-in
efforts, or working within the party to
change its direction when the Bemo-
crats no longer control political per-

ing committee.
Besides Lowenstein it includes Geor-
gia state Rep. Julian Bond; John Cash-
in, head of the minority delegation from
Alabama; Ronnie Dugger, editor of the
Texas Observer; Sanford Gottlieb, chair-
man of the Committee for a SANE
Nuclear Policy; and Rep. Don Peterson
of Minnesota and David Hoeh, chair-
man of the New Hampshire delegation.
The immediate goals of the 'coalition
will be to tone down the bitterness of
the Democratic national convention and
to advance liberal views on the war, the
ghettos and political participation, ac-
cording to Prof. Arnold Kaufman, of the
philosophy department and a steering
committee member.
"We intend to exercise a veto over the
Democratic ticket." says Kaufman. "The
insurgency will remain relatively in-
tegral and intact after November, in

sues to move the electorate leftward."
He concedes that the price of moving
the country may be continued defeat in
the presidential races, but "we've got to
show the opposition our teeth are buried
in their necks and'we will not let go."
For the time between now, and the
election, the coalition people are doing
nothing to discourage local efforts by
Democrats to defeat the Humphrey-
Muskie ticket. "The effort should be
visibly Democratic and visibly anti-
Humphrey," according to Kaufman, "but
should encourage a high voter turnout
for local races rather than staying, at
home out of disgust with the presi-
dential race."
In Michigan, a student-centered ef,-
fort to write-ip McCarthy for president
may run into some trouble should the
Minnesota senator declare his support
for Humphrey as he may well do on

Among intellectuals, this crumbling
is continuing at the grass roots even
though many of the professional politi-
cians who backed McCarthy and Ken-
nedy have joined the Humphrey cam-
paign since the convention. These. rank-
and-file Democrats-students and in-
tellectuals politicized in 1968 by their
opposition to the war and the Johnson
administration-form the backbone of
the coalition.
Organized labor leaders have declared
for Humphrey but are finding a rank-
and-file revolt for Wallace amdng union
members who feel threatened by rising
Negro demands. Labor's price for sup-
porting local candidates-a firm com-
mitment to the Humphrey-Muskie tick-
et-may spell disaster for many liberal
candidates, such as Lowenstein or
Ohio's Senate hopeful John Gilligan,
who have reservations about the ticket.
