Gives Up
Brown Takes Over
As SNCC Leader;
No Policy Changes
By The Associated Press
ATLANTA, Ga. - Black power
leader Stokely Carmichael was re-
placed yesterday as national
chairman of the Student Non-
violent Coordinating Committee
by an Alabama staff member, H.
Rap Brown.
There will be no change in
SNCC policy, Brown said at a
news conference, climaxing a
week-long staff meeting of the
militant organization.
"We shall seek to build a strong
nationwide black anti-draft pro-
gram and movement to include
high school students, along with
college students and other .black
men of draft age," said Brown.
Victims of Oppression
"We see no reason for black
men, who are daily murdered phy-
sically and mentally in this coun-
try, to go and kill yellow people
abroad who have done nothing to
us and are in fact victims of the
same oppression that our brothers
in Vietnam suffer," Brown said.
Carmichael had said long before
the meeting that he would relin-
quish the chairmanship a year
after defeating' John R. Lewis,
the ousted chairman. Lewis later
quit the organization after it
adopted the black power slogan.F
Carmichael, wearing an Army
field jacket which he said a cousin
had given him after returning
from Vietnam, said he would re-
turn to the field to organize. He
had told associates earlier he
wanted to take on the home rule
campaign in Washington, D.C.
Interrupted Work
"I am an organizer," Carmichael
said. "That's what I love to do
best. I interrupted my year's work
by being chairman. Now I am go-
in back to the fields."
Before taking the top SNCC
post, Carmichael organized an all
Negro Black Panther . political
party in Lowndes County, Ala-
bama, but its slate of candidates
lost in last year's elections.
Brown was. asked what Car-
michael's role would be. That will
be determined by the organiza-
tion's central committee, the new
chairman -replied. Brown said also
there had been a change in the
make up of the committee itself
but declined to give details.

ANN ARBOR teachers have decided not to return to work
in the fall if the proposed salary increases that would be financed
by a successful millage election June 12 are not agreed to by the
The decision was one of six resolutions adopted at a system-
wide meeting of teachers Thursday night in reaction to the defeat
Monday of a 51V;2-mill school tax increase proposal designed to
raise more money for teachers' salaries. Between 550 and 600
of the Ann Arbor Teachers Association's 950 members attended
the meeting.
THE SELECTION of a new President for the University of
Minnesota was not on the agenda of yesterday's meeting of the
Minnesota Regents. Regent Chairman Charles W. Mayo an-
nounced that this was because "we're letting the whole thing cool
off for a while."
Minnesota had offered its Presidency to Robben W. Fleming,
Chancellor of the University of Wisconsin's Madison campus.
But Fleming chose to come here instead as successor to retiring
President Harlan Hatcher.
FORDHAM UNIVERSITY, one of the nation's largest Roman
Catholic schools, located in New York, will begin a series of
coeducational sex discussions next fall dealing "frankly and
directly" with premarital intercourse, conception and the meth-
ods of contraception.
"We know we are establisihng a precedent," Martin J.
Meade, dean of students, said yesterday.
"But our primary concern is the students. It's apparent that
many undergraduates are confused about relationships between
men and women."
Contraceptives, Meade said, would be discussed without
touching on their morality. This approach, he contended, would {
not constitute a break with Roman Catholic opposition to the

CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK last week dropped a con-
troversial requirement that student organizations submit the
names of their members to the college authorities. Under new
regulations, a studept group will still have to submit the name
of its faculty adviser, the number of members, its purpose and
any outside affiliation.
The requirement of submitting names of all members has
been under attack from both activist students and professors.
The students claimed that the names were made available to the
Federal Bureau of Investigation. The professors maintained that
the lists posed a threat to academic freedom.

Committee Attempts
To Evaluate Courses,

Students, faculty members and
the admnistration have reached
an agreement on one point. The

"Our records and bookkeeping
are scattered, we want to see
where we're going," commented
William Hays, associate dean of
the Literary College. "We want
to see what the curricular patterns
and changes are and have been in
the variojus departments," he
Hays is in charge of the curri-
culum review which is essentially
a "fact-finding mission" aimed at
finding out such matters as how
many courses with two, three and
four credit hours are offered in a
deparment and how often they are
Hays and an intern from the
Center for Higher Education have
studied the curricular patterns and
changes in three departments overl
the past year. Hays indicated that
some faculty committees may be
established in the future to facili-
tate the task.
According to one source, the fate
of various proposals to adjust the
allotment of credit hours in vari-
ous courses, such as the proposal*
to give all courses four creditI
hours, depends on the result of the
curriculum review.
The report of the curriculum
committee on the alteration of-
credit hours went to the execu-
tive committee although "there
was a considerable amount of
sentiment in favor of adopting
it," according to a faculty mem-
ber. However, the faculty thought
it would be best to adopt "a wait
and see attitude" until the results
of the calendar committee report
anc the curriculum review were
available, before making changes
in the present program, he added.
One result of the calendar com-
mittee's report was a poll of the
literary college faculty on the1
value of the trimester over the oldl
two-semester system. The calen-
dar committee recommended a re-
tention of the present trimestera
system with modifications.

Negroes March Peacefully in Jackson
To Protest Death of Youth During Riots

iy The Associate-t Pre s
NEW YORK--This year's most
sought after college graduate may
not be the class president but a3
Negro engineer. The emphasis on
Negro recruiting by the nation's
business firms is intense.
One reason is the threat of loss
of defense contracts if the gov-
ernment thinks a firm is discrim-
inating against Negroes.
"A good Negro graduate with a
technical background is more in
demand than anyone I can think
of." said Bob Millikan, senior em-
ployment representative at Pacif-
ic Gas & Electrical Co. in Sari
Negro Recruiting
As a result, companies are step-
ping up their recruiting on Negro
college campuses and offering big-
ger salaries.
"A few years ago, big firms be-
gan to hire more Negroes. Then
smaller companies figured they
ought to do something too," said
William C. Gutman, placement di-

"Ten years ago you just didn't
have this kind of offer for mi-
nority group members," said Wil-
liam M. Nix, placement director.
Some students are skeptical,
Companies are looking for a
window-dresser, someone to take
pictures of or to show they're

senior at Morehouse.

"It'll be token 'integration in
companies for awhile at least,"
said another Morehouse student.
But at the University of Cali-
fornia at Los Angeles, Joseph Scul-
ly, placement director, said indus-

"show" Negro.

By The Associated Press
JACKSON, Miss.-Several hun-
dred Negroes marched peacefully'
into downtown Jackson on last'
night protesting the death of a
Negro man felled by police gun-
fire during the Jackson State Col-
lege riot the night before.
Police closely guarded the group
as it proceeded into the business
district, picking up in numbers as
it went along.
Charles Evers, state field sec-
retary for the Nationaly Associa-
tion for the Advancement of
Colored People told the crowd,
"I came here to march and show
our resentment to another mur-
der." He called for Negro unity
and said whites want "you to start
aiguing and bickering among

Thursday night's rioting.
Willie Ricks, an aide to Stokely
Carmichael, moved through the'
area vowing "an eye for an eye,
arm for arm, head for head and
life for a life."
Student leaders at Jackson
State, Mississippi's largest Negro;
school, blamed the wild two nights'

to "unscrupulous outsiders." He
said 90 per cent of the rioters
were not students.
Mayor Allen Thompson. who
called in the National Guard on
Thursday night to aid police in
restoring order, blamed the tur-
bulence on "those agitators like
Stokely Carmichael and his black
power movement, 'which is not
only antiwhite but almost all that
is anti American."
The mayor said police were in-
vestigating the cause of the rioting
and had conferred by telephone
with John Doar, head of the Jus-
tice Department's Civil Rights
Division. He said police, highway

patrol and National Guardsmen
"will see to it that law and order
rre maintained."
Lynch Street ,a major thorough-
fare which runs through the heart
of the campus, became a littered
battleground Thursday. Hundreds
of students hurled rocks, tree
limbs and bricks at cars that at-
tempted to pass. At night, the
rioters assaulted- police barricades
in an effort to march into the
business district of this Mississip-
pi capital city.
One such assault by some 100
shouting Negroes was turned back
when police fired a shot gun
charge that appeared intended to
go over the rioters' heads. One
youth, Benjamin Brown, 22, fell
mortally wounded.
Brown, a Negro truck driver,
formerly was employed by the Del-
ta Ministry, a civil rights arm of
the National Council of Churches.
A Delta Ministry spokesman said
the Justice Department would be
asked to investigate his death.

suffered minor shotgun pellet
wounds, and a Mississippi High-
way Patrol investigator was cut
