Protesters disrupt
California campuses
From wire Service Reports
National Guardsmen with unsheathed bayonets were
called back to the University of Wisconsin campus yesterday
as students continued to demonstrate and boycott classes.
In California, 500 students took over the student union
, building at the University of Santa Barbara proclaiming
a "new university." And at Berkeley, about 150 demonstrators
roamed through the student union cafeteria and library,
breaking windows, and overturning chairs and tables.
The new confrontation ,at Wisconsin apparently delayed
immediate withdrawal of the 1,900 National Guardsmen

Duke University was quiet yes-

Meanwhile, striking students

of classes to assure that they will
not be dropped from them when

Knowles.
Several hundred students surged
through an administration and
class building chanting, "Support
the black demands, support the
black demands."
Some classes were disrupted. In
others, students confronted pro-
fessors with' discussion of the
black students' demands in at-
tempts merely to restructure the
day's classes.
National Guardsmen were then
posted inside the buildings.
Guardsmen also broke up street

The Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs will choose
the students from a list of six sub-
nitted by Graduate Assembly, the
I representative body of graduate
students on campus.
'Most of the debate on the reso-
lution which had been presented
to Assembly by the Classified Re-
search Committee centered on the
section limiting student represen-
tation to "students from the grad-
uate school and other professional
schools."
Prof. Gerhard Weinberg of the
history department suggested an
amendment that would have per-
mitted one undergraduate chosen
by Student Government Council
and two GA appointees to join the
committee.
"What makes graduate students
more capable 'than undergraduates
of judging the principle of re-
search projects?" he asked.
Prof. Joseph E. Rowe, chairman
of the electrical engineering de-
partment and a member of the
committee, argued that graduate
students "are best able to pass on
the value of contracts because of
their greater knowledge."
Weinberg's amendment was de-
feated,
The assembly also debated at
length SACUA's recommendations
on the -student conduct section of
the proposed Regental bylaws.
Faculty members had difficulty
agreeing upon the meaning of
SACUA's version of paragraph
four, Section 7.10, which states
"No student shall have his enroll-
ment in a course or program
terminated except by (1) a Judi-
cial proceeding, or (2) for a fail-
ure to meet academic standards."
The definition of "academic
matters" that finally emerged
from the discussion was "matters
of grades, course and degree re-
quirements.,"
This would include the licensing
f u n c t i o n of the professional
schools.

'U'Wilsoni
designates
By GEORGE MLER
Twenty-four University seniors
have been named designates for
Woodrow Wilson Fellowships,
ranking the University second
nationally in number of winners.
Only Cornell University, with
30 designates, ranks above the
University. The University of To-
ronto also produced 24 nominees.;
Wilson Fellowships are awarded
to seniors who plan careers in col-
lege teaching. They are chosen
through faculty recommendations
and interviews. Fifteen regional
selection committees make the
final decision.
Fellows receive tuition and ex-
penses for the first year of grad-
uate studies from either the school
they attend or the Wilson Na-
tional Fellowship Foundation.
This years selection process
.represents the second year of the
designation program, which is
supported by the Ford Foundation.
Before 1968, the Wilson Founda-
tion made direct annual awards
to 1000 students.
However, a cut in the Ford sup-
port in 1968 forced the Foundation
to adopt a designation prog,'am,
Last year 85 per cent of the de-
signates received, fellowships from
graduate schools and the Founda-
tion was able to support the re-
mainder.
The University's Wilson desig-
nates include: Kenneth P. Ben-
diner, art history; Leonard R.
Berlanstein, history; John F. Ber-
ry, history; Thomas W. Cobb, Eng-
lish literature; Lynn A. Cooper,

HYPOCRITICAL VOTING

orse scores
By ROY SETH GORDET

"Do not accept what a poli-
tician says unless what he says
can be squared with his voting
record," former Sen. Wayne
Morse warned a near capacity
crowd in the Union Ballroom
Sunday.
"It is your fault that states-
manship is no higher than it is,
. (if) you support the gutless
wonders who say one thing in
the cloakroom and vote the op-
posite way on the Senate floor."
The former Democrat Sena-
tor from Oregon, narrowly de-
feated last November after 24
years in the Senate, reneatedlv

olitics'
The Senator, one of the first
Congressmen to publicly op-
pose 'the war in Vietnam,
pointed to the war as a prima
example of political hypocrisy.
Denouncing the was ar "un-
just, inexcusable, and illegal,"
Morse fostered no sympathy on
those who supported it - in-
cluding former Secretary of De-
fense Robert McNamara whoin
he called "a liar" and one of
(John Foster) Dulles' boys.
"I'd rather walk out of the
Senate than put the blood of
this war on my hands," Morse
said.
Television Morse sid. h::

A spokesman for Brown's firm
said yesterday that "the other
firm came in cheaper, but that
wasn't all that was involved."
He declined comment on the
other factors.
In addition to Brown's long his-~
tory of poor relations with the
State News, further investigation
disclosed other related facts:
-Brown's firm was bought out'
recently by Panax Corp. The pres-
ident of Panax Friday called for
the ouster of the State News from
the Michigan Press Association be-
cause of the printing of alleged
obscenities; Brown is the vice-
president of Panax Corp.
-Louis J. Berman, general
manager of the State News, who
accused the editor-in-chief of in-
competence last week, is a former
president of the Michigan PressI
Association and a "good friend"!
of Brown.
