Students for a Democratic So-
ciety, vowed aid early yesterday
morning to any serviceman who
desires to create "opposition and
disruption within the Army" as
well as to servicemen who wish
to leavy the Army and join the
The resolution, passed by a large
majority, also pledged encourage-
ment to chapters and draft resist-
ance unions to aid servicemen by
providing information about con-
scientious objection and the war
in Vietnam.
The plenary session reconvened
at 10 a.m. to discuss proposals
concerning relations with hippy
and civil rights groups.
A resolution carrying a large
majority stated: "That SDS en-
dorse and participate in a Provo
Conference-Tribal Gathering to be
held in early September or late
November of this fall."
Provo, a group residing chiefly
in Amsterdam, was characterized
in an article in New Left Notes-
a radical newspaper published by
SDS-as: "having no thought of
being a political party-plus orga-
nization, plus ideology. It is effec-
tive precisely because it is form-
less, fluid and unpredictable. ..."

The article goes on to note
that "Provo's aim is to provoke
everyone who is not already a

aries of the, state. The struggle

LA PAZ, Bolivia-The commander of Bolivian armed forces
said yesterday that Cuban revolutionary Ernesto Guevara is di-
4 recting guerrilla operations in Bolivia.
Gen. Alfredo Ovando Candia said Guevara was directing a
guerrilla movement "of international character." He said they
"propose a political change in Latin America."
Asked what proof he had of Guevaras presence in the country,
Ovando said there were statements from various "witnesses"
and from Regis Debray, a French writer under arrest on charges
of collaborating with the guerrillas.

The 500 shotgun armed police men detailed to keep an eye
on the area were being held on the fringe of 'the mile square
sector. Their withdrawal had been demanded by Negroes.
As the evening wore on, with temperatures in the low 70s,
scattered reports of rock-and bottle throwing filtered to the
police command post. At Jefferson Avenue and Ferry Street,
police used tear gas to disperse a crowd that had gathered. Then,
dozens of police marched south on the avenue waving shotguns
and ordering people off the street.
YEHUDI MENUHUIN and the Bath Festival Orchestra will be
featured at an extra Fair Lane Concert on the Dearborn campus
Saturday night, July 15. Tickets from the rained-out June 11
afternoon concert will be honored. Menuhuin and the orchestra
will also appear on Sunday July 16.

In an effort to pledge support
for "black groups defending their
communities against police at-
tacks" the convention passed a
resolution which included several
courses of action to be taken. They
include: prior to and when rebel-
lions occur, leafletting in white
communities explaining the facts
behind the rebellion and pointing
out the common interests of blacks
and oppressed whites; sympathy
demonstrations at police precincts,
and on campuses; legal and finan-
cial aid to be given to the groups;
and research into the nature of
police departments.
After this dicussion, Theophilus
Smith, an organizer for the Stu-
dent Non-Violent Co-ordinating
Committee in Alabama gave a
brief presentation of the goals and
policies of his organization. "SNCC
is no longer a civil rights group
but is now fighting for human
rights," commented Smith. Ac-
cording to Smith, SNCC is in the
process of creating a liberation
school to give people a black con-

education is essential to the

The three secretaries and the
eight national officers-at-large

After final agreement on the

election figures were ndt released.
Spiegal declined to make a policy
statement at this time.

mittee yesterday removed a pro-
vision from the higher education
appropriations bill which were in-
tended to force a hike in non-
resident tuition. The committee al-
so restored the education appro-
priation at the level recommended
by Romney.
The Senate, however, must con-
cur in the conference committee
sessions next week.
"They will be bitterly fought,"
predicted Rep. Jack Faxon (D-De-
troit), who was the leader ofI
House movement to remove the
amendments, "but not as much
as University spending increases."
Faxon said he will introduce an
amendment which would add
about $3 million to Romney's al-I
lotment of $62.2 million for the
University when the House takes
up the bill.
He said his proposal provides the
" other state-supported colleges
and universities with large in-
creases as well.
Faxon said the difference be-
tween the governor's original re-
quest and his proposed increases
would "avoid the necessity of an
impending tuition increase."
The House would then pass a
motion which would recom-
mend no increase in present tui-;

Student Government Council,
looking toward its public relations
image will give out a booklet on
what SGC can and will do with
student support.
According to SGC member Mar-
ty Lieberman, '69, the booklet to
be released early in the fall semes-
ter, stresses the need for student
participation in University affairs
by arguing:
-if students participate they
will assure better education for
themselves as well as students fol-
lowing them.
-student participation will help
keep the University "honest" in
regard to dealings with outside in-
Lieberman commented that the
booklet will be fairly "low key" in
its arguments and will stress stu-
dent government within the living
units. Lieberman mentioned thi
winter's student take-over of
Joint Judiciary Council rules and
enforcement as an example of this,
The book gives some background
of SGC events, particularly the
story behind the break with the
Office of Student Affairs.
The booklet contains contribu-
tions from current and former
SGC members and on student
housing, the SGC Student Renta
Union, and the draft counseling
service planned for next fall.
Also in the booklet is a list of
SGC events and programs planned

SGC originally appropriated
$1,500 to cover the cost of the
booklet. Subsequent investigation

put out for $1,000. Selling adver-

bring in about $450, according to
