But Rothberger disagrees.
"Those are brown shirt tactics;
its the same kind of thing they
(the Ayers group) did to us at last
week's meeting. You live in a com-
munity; you have to allow oppos-
ing groups and factions to discuss
the issues. No one has the right
to shout anyone down."
Rothberger elaborates on his
charge that the "James Gang" is
not radical at all, but actually
borders on the fascistic. "Ayers
says this campus already has the
consciousness, but also says you
can't let 'em vote. Now, we're not
moderating our politics, but we
think you have to be careful in
choosing an issue that will break
the students from their self-in-
terest."
Rothberger and other members
of the "Radical Caucus" don't
feel that going into the classroom
and taking it over is the right
approach. "You can't afford the
antagonism; you have to build a'
significant minority before you
actually take the moves to end the,
war, to stop classified research, to
do any of the things that you
know are right."
Chester, who has been under
significant personal attack from.
many members of the "J a m e s
Gang" because of his role in what
they term is the "Voice bureau-
cracy," denies that Voice is an
authoritarian organization, as has
been charged.
Much of the anti-authoritar-
tan" criticism centers around as-
sertions 6that the Voice leadership
s--of which thester ha been san
undeniable and integral part for
three years-"sits" on programs
and is hesitant to act. Chester
justifies official institutions inside
Voice-'-a chairmanshaip, the com-
mittee structure-by pointing out
that programs cannot be enacted
without investigation and discus-
sion, which are the primary aims
of the bureaucracy.
Ayers, who vehemently separ-
ates 'himself from any arguments
directed against individuals in the
organization, insists that what his,

group is asking for is not "um-
brella" structure for Voice. "We
aren't saying that any member of
Voice should be able to do what he
wants to do and still use the SDS
name." But, he adds, SDS in Ann
Arbor is not really typical of SDS
nationally, and the local group
should revise its positions to make
the national group more unified.
Many members of the "James
Gang" speak of the national as-
pect of the movement. Jim Mellen
of REP, who is new to Ann Arbor
this year, said at last week's Voice
meeting that SDS has to define
itself in terms of national libera-
tion movements throughout the
world. Ayers adds, "We are the
arm of the liberation front inside
the monster."
But Voice has traditionally been
fairly divorced from SDS na-
tionally, and the antagonistic re-
ationship between the two is
well-known. Chester points out
that the national SDS hierarchy
of full-time officers centered in
Chicago is actually on the peri-
phery of the relationships between
the separate chapters.
What happens at Tuesday's
meeting will probably determine
much of the future of SDS in Ann
Arbor. The "Radical Caucus" has
announced that if members of the
"James Gang" disrupt the orderly
producers of Tuesday's meeting,
they will move to another room
and use sergeants-at-arms to
keep "disrupters" out. Rothberger1
insists that if there is any one rea-I

son why Voice programs have not
really gotten off the ground yet
this year, it is because "the craz-
les (the "James Gang") won't let
us have a meeting'."
Ayers says he'll be pleased if the
"Radical Caucus" does move to
another room and become, in ef-
fect, "a closed caucus organiza-
tion."
"We'll act according to demo-
cratic procedure," Chester re-
sponds. "Anybody -can come if
they'll follow the rules."
It seems, however, that "the
rules" still, have to be defined.

AAUP report criticizes
state education support

(Continued from Page 1)
dent for doctoral and graduate/
professional costs.
Based on that formula, five of
the state's 12 public institutions
receive appropriations b e 1 o w
equity. These are the four region-
al universities and Wayne State;
they enroll 43.8 per cent of all
students in the state 'system and
nearly half of the system's mast-
ers' candidates:
Through such a formula the au-
thors believe the State's smaller
schools would be able to boost the
quality of instruction.. But that
would only be so, they argue, if
the State further agrees to inflate
the level of support across the
board.
"Any discussion of equity, rea-
son and adequacy in the support
of higher education must take
place in light of the state's ability
to perform-its resources as com-
pared to those of other states and
its performance as measured by
that of comparable states," the
report states.
Last January the State Depart-

ment of Commerce reported Mich-
igan's gross state product-the
total output of goods and seryices
-jumped 50.6 per cent while the
GNP was up '4b.2 per cent. Simi-
larly the state's personal income
rose 52.8 per cent while the na-
tional increase was 40.6 per cent.'
In that light the committee re-
port seeks to demonstrate inade-
quate level of support. However,
the -report does not offer statis-
ticl comparison of economic
growth with the five states to
which Michigan's educational of-
fering is compared-California,
