"It would be tragic," Milliken said, "if circumstances

Milliken's support of state aid to private and parochial

However, in his address, Milli-
ken cautioned that if the Legisla-

must "find a source for the addi-
tional funds which would be re-
quired. He added that any legisla-

An incident of alleged racial
discrimination in South Quad's
Club 600 brought several Uriver-
sity administrators and a group pf
black, students into conflict yes-
John C.' Feldkamp, director of
University housing, delayed final
resolution of the case, while the
five students demanded the resig-
nation of the club manager whom
they charge "embarrassed and of-
fended" them.
The students, residents of Alice
Lloyd Hall, complained that they
were told to "get out'" of the
snack bar late Wednesday night
by the manager, Peter Collins,
They said they were visiting the
dorm as guests of a friend when
asked to leave South Quad's pri-T
vate club.
Collins said yesterday he had
asked the group for University
identification as soon as they en-
tered the club because he suspect-
ed they were part of a "young,
mod, black" group believed re-
sponsible for the rash of vandal-
ism and theft which has plagued
the quad since last fall.
Quad Director John Lindquist
had advised Collins to question
customers who resembled the
suspected vandals.
"We weren't dressed mod and
we don't look like we're fifteen."
Gloria Davis, '71, explained.
"There was no reason for the man
in the snack bar to associate us
with these people except the fact
that we're black."
"He did not let us get to the
snack bar, therefore he could not
have known whether or not we
were just passing thrdugh," added
Debbie Mobley, '71. "He began
