NAACP Backs Police Review




School Installs E lectronics'


EDITOR' NOTE: Following are ex-
cetpts from a statement by the Ann
Arbor Chapter of the National As-
soiaton for the Advancement of
Colored People on the Police review
Board proposal rejected by City
Council four weeks ago. The letter
will be read to Council Monday
night by chapter chairman Mrs.
Emrma M. Wheeler.
It is difficult for the NAACP
to understand Council's rejection
of Councilman (LeRoy) Cappaert's
proposal that bipartisan commit-
tee composed of Council mem-
bers be established for the purpose
of reviewing charges pertaining to
the Ann Arbor police.
The justification for a review
board . . . in no way turns on the
truth or falsity of such charges.
We are quite prepared to have
our charges put to the test of im-
partial inquiry. The need for some
sort of trusted review board derives
from widespread lack of confi-
dence in the manner in which the
police deal with situations involv-
ing racial factors.
We agree completely with the
following remarks ... by the New
York Civil Liberties Union:
Justified Grievances
"There is a widespread belief,
whether justified or not, that
Win Awards
For Relations,
Alumni, Study
The University and one of its
professors received three differ-
ent awards recently.,
The Ford Foundation revealed
yesterday that Prof. Robert M.
Stern oa the economics depart-
ment has been awarded a facul-
ty fellowship for the coming aca-
demic year.
Stern is one of 41 national
winners. He will leave Ann Ar-
bor for Rome latenext month to
spend a year with the Bank of
"taly in research on foreign trade
and Italian economic growth.
University alumni groups won
three, places in the 1964 "Alumni
Giving Incentive" awards spon-
sored by the American Alumni
The Michigan Alumni Fund was
awarded first place for improve-
ment in performance. It was sec-
ond only to the University of No-
tre Dame, a private school. And
first prize for fund raising went
to the Alumni Fund for direct
mail campaign for alumni giving.
The third major award was two
top places in the annual confer-
ence of the American College Pub-
lic Relations Association.
The University received a certifi-
Cate of special merit for internal
publications for its special Brien-
tation publication for new staff.
Another certificate of merit was
awarded to a series of promotion
publications for the University
Presidents Club.
At the same conference, Vice-
President for University Relations
Michael Radock was named na-
ional program chairman of the
association's 1965 convention.

complaints by civilians of police
brutality and discrimination are
now not objectively and impartially
handled, that resort to the present
machinery designed, to deal with
civilian complaints is inadequate
for the redress of justified griev-
ances and indeed that the making
of a complaint is both futile and
dangerous . .
"Independent civilian boards
created in other cities to review
complaints against police officers
have contributed significantly to-
ward the improvement of relations
between the police department and
minority groups."
Unreasoned pleas to "Support
Your Local Police" cannot an-
swer such arguments.,
The essential argument for a
Review Board is, then, not that the
police have practiced discrimina-
tion, but that there is a wide-
spread belief that they have done
so, certainly among members of
the Negro community, but also
among many others. If these
charges are unjustified, then the
police have nothing to fear from
impartial inquiry. The result would
be restoration of confidence in
the police.
Restore Confidence
If the charges are justified, then
such a board would find fault and
facilitate the search for remedies
which would, in the long run, re-
store confidence.
Thus on the assumption that
the Council is concerned solely
with maintaining deserved con-
fidence in our police, it is in the
somewhat peculiar position of re-
jecting a proposal which cannot
help but serve that end ...
The only argument against such
a Review Board which seems to
have any weight is the fear that
if the charges are true and mem-
bers of the police force are ex-
posed, this will adversely affect
police morale and public confi-
dence in the short run. But surely,

this is contemptible reasoning-
for stripped to its bare essentials,
it in.,effect maintains that it is
quite all right to sacrifice the
legal rights of local citizens for
the sake of police morale and the
existing, undeserved public con-
fidence in our police.

Thomas thought.
But Goldwater has a fair chance

linois, Wisconsin and California,
he said.
Bretton termed Pennsylvania
Gov. William Scranton's request
for party unity a definite sign
that Scranton is trying to con-

dential bid in 1968.
He did not think Goldwater
could win in Michigan. "Gov.
Romney's posture so far reflects
the realization that he can't win
the governdrship if tied too closely
to Goldwater. This is also the po-
sition of other politicians-Sen.

Grand Valley State College near
Grand Rapids is completing the
installation of the most massive
electronic teaching equipment in
the state.
The teaching tools include edu-
cational radio, educational tele-
vision and a range of other audi-
visual equipment.
The college, which opened in
1963, on an 876-acre site, has
sought to emphasize "advanced
and specialized work for the stu-
dent who wants it," according to
Miss Nancy Bryant, director of
public information.
Individual Stressed
The emphasis on the individual
is achieved by program and elec-
tronics integration of the pro-
gram and electdonics. Miss Bryant
explained that the object of elec-
tronics teaching is to free the
teacher "for continuous consulta-
tion with the student on an indi-
vidual basis."
She cited as an example the
basic studies courses offered to
freshmen. The school offers five
hours of such courses-at least
half transmitted by electrical de-
vices-,and a one or two-hour tu-
torial session with an instructor.
It is in these hours that Grand
Valley seeks to let the individual
"make his own imprint education-
The freshman courses also have
seminar sessions 'that "combine
the three most valuable means to
disseminate information--lecture,
tutorial, and seminar," she said.
These are found rarely at other
The mainstay of the student's
life outside the classroom is the
study carrell. It serves as a stan-:
dard library carrell, but is also in
some cases equipped with a variety
of audio and visual aids.
The audio portions available
include short and long-play tape
recordings in languages, music and
dramatics. By means of an AM
and FM radio tuning system more
than 310 different "programs" of
instruction can be piped into the
carrell's earphones. '

THIS STUDY CARREL is designed to let the individual prog-
ress at his own speed. Installed at Grand Valley State College
near Grand Rapids, it features audio-visual equipment which
can, in part, replace the lecturer and library.
Visually, the carrell offers live -general cultural programs fo
