A MASSIVE MARCH to demonstrate Michigan backing of
soldier fighting in Vietnam has been proposed by State Senator
Basil Brown (D-Detroit).
Brown asked all patriotic, fraternal, veterans and univer-
sity groups to join in the march as part of the observation of

other major Michigan cities.
The Senator said he would invite Governor George Romney
to join in the march.
STUDENT LEADERS at the University of Illinois' Chicago
Circle campus yesterday urged the school's Board of Trustees
to ask the Legislature to abolish an act banning 'Un-American'
campus speakers.
Student leaders have collected 2500 names representing ten
per cent of the student body at Illinois' Chicago and Urbana
campuses urging the trustees to oppose the state's Clabaugh Act.
The Chicago campus students met with the trustees' general
policies committee behind closed doors in the first two meetings
on what has become a free speech controversy.
In February, Herbert Aptheker, Communist party theore-
tician, spoke to some 603 students near the Chicago Circle Cam-
pus, after Chancellor Norman Parker said he could not appear on

No letter grade or credit will be given, only a "satisfactory"
or "unsatisfactory" rating. The students will be divided into
groups of 15 or 16 and will get help from second and third-year
students. Currently there are more than 1,100 students in the
Michigan law school who participate in the moot court program.
THE UNIVERSITY'S Dearborn Campus will officially dedi-

chairman of the Ann Arbor chap

president of the Ann Arbor chap-

for the Advancement of Colored
People, were read to the Council.
A statement prepared by Robert
J. Harris, professor of race rela-

HRC's testing tactics was also
presented at the meeting. The
statement said that the conduct
of the commission could not be
construed as "entrapment" be-

pressure to engage in the unlaw-
ful act."

CHICAGO - An estimated 600
students from 100 high schools
and colleges across the nation
overwhelmingly approved a reso-
lution here Sunday calling for a
nationwide Vietnam referendum
on campuses next fall.
The students took part in a two-
day Student Mobilization Commit-
tee meeting at the University of
Chicago'last weekend. Represent-
ed were organizations as diverse
as the YMCA, the Young Socialist
Alliance, SDS, and the Communist

terday Larson said, "The very fact
that the university was using hid-
den cameras to take photographs
of alleged homosexual activities
is indicative of the kinds of things
that can happen without student
and faculty access to information
and decision-making. We cannot
be sure that it is not continuing
or will not be renewed."
Answers Demands
Keast attempted to answer six
WSM demands for more student
power at a discussion Friday at-
tended by several hundred stu-
dents. WSM has asked for student
voting members on all presidential
advisory committees, a student
seat on the Board of Governors,
binding referenda on student is-
sues and student election of ad-
Larson said WSM was "unsatis-
fied" with Keast's responses. The
president said students could only
function on student interest com-
mittees such as the Athletic Ad-
visory Committee. Keast doubted
the possibility of constitutional
amendment to permit a student
member of the Board of Gover-
nors, and said he did not under-
stand the referendum proposal.
The president also said, "I do
not believe a system of direct elec-
tion of administrative officers
would be either acceptable or de-

and protests until the demands
are more acceptably answered.
WSM candidates will challenge

this week for SFC seats and of-


to see a gradual transfer of the
power into student hands.
UCA Opposition
Fullwood is opposed by the UCA
which wishes to see an immediate
transfer of power. UCA has called
for a censure moton against Full-
wood, who has responded by call-
ing for a special Senate meeting
this evening.
UCA cites a May 8 "deadline"
in the referendum for its imple-
mentation and charges that Full-
wood is not using his responsi-
bility as a student leader to carry
out the decision of the students.
The referendum measure provid-
ed for complete transfer of con-
trol on May 8 unless the Student
Senate voted that faculty reaction
was favorable enough to permit
gradual implementation. The Sen-
ate did this by a large majority,
but with UCA dissenting.
Accuse Fullwood
On May 9, Michael Kirby, an
UCA member, charged that Full-
wood "consistently ignored and
undermined the effectiveness" of
the recently passed referendum
and "thereby abducted his proper
place of leadership."
Fullwood dismissed this accu-
sation by stating: "I do not be-
lieve threats and ultimatu'ns are
the way to get things done, and
I have been mandated by the
students to do just that."
According to Peter Abbott, Daily
Cardinal assistant managing edi-
tor, Wisconsin Chancellor at the
Madison campus, Robben Fleming,
has remained "aloof" of the de-
veloping situation.
The real struggle here is one
of tactics: Fullwood supports the
view that policy may be changed
but not by fiat or ultimatum. The -
UCA vehemently disagrees.

Protest Restrictions Trigger
rClass Boycott at Howard 'U'

Northwestern Protest Movement Dissolves
Following Critical Student Senate Motion

Five demands for more student
freedom triggered a mass boycott
of classes at Howard University
last week.
The boycott came to the 8500
student campus in Washington,
D.C., as a reaction to new restric-
tions on student demonstrations
and protest movements.
Carolyn Carter, editor of How-
ard's student weekly, estimated
that 80 per cent of Howard's 85001
plus students participated in last
Wednesday's boycott and rally.
Among the "guidelines" handed
down by Howard's edministration
were prohibitions on press confer-
ences not officially cleared by the3
