Some 130 students filled South
Quad's West Lounge last night to
hear President Robben Fleming
discuss the LSA sit-in, the war
moratorium, black enrollment and
other topics in an informal "open
forum."
One issue that got plenty of
play was the bookstore and the
action at, as Fleming called it,
"the LSA incident." When con-
fronted with allegations of police
brutality by students who had been
arrested, President Fleming re-
plied, "This isn't what I get from
all the people I've talked to, in-
cluding students who were there."
On the matter of whether the
police displayed excessive force
with their show of rifles, he an-
swered, "Sheriff Douglas Harvey
can cone on campus without gain-
ing my permission. It is within his
jurisdiction. What he uses is also
his decision and I have publicly
disagreed with him on it. One of
the hazards that students must
face wvhen they're contemplating
this type of action is that they're

all classes. Such a decision forces
people to take action which they
might not agree with," he said.
Fleming took pains to explain
the complicated problems conect-
ed with military research and its
relation to the military. "A great
many kinds of basic research will
have war implications as well as
civilian ones," and he used the
example of infra-red research to
demonstrate his point.
"As for classified research," he
continued, "it is really a matter of
definition. If a researcher has a
certain security clearance, the
project is classified even if his'
work is in no way related to thatj

All this must be taken into con-
sideration before concluding any-
thing about the nature of a par-
ticular project."
In all, it was a congenial hour
and a half, which, if nothing else,
gave President Fleming a chance
to meet the students in the re-
laxed manner which has become
part of his style. In closing, he
commented on the University's re-
lation to the public. "This is an
era in which the public is very
hostile to the universities," he
said. "It is nonsense for students
to take the attitude that the pub-
lic doesn't care how the University
is run and it is equal nonsense for
the public to think that the stu-

poet Allen Ginsberg will be reading
his poetry in the Ann Arbor-De-

leader John Sinclair.

In a press conference yesterday
Ginsberg said Sinclair's case clear-
ly will be thrown out in the U.S.
Supreme Court, but the police want
to "put him through the wringer"'

Ginsberg also cited the cases of

On the issue of increased black the University. The proposal re-

enrollment at the University,
Fleming was expansive. "We've
probably got 1000 black students.
That's not a large number. We
should have more." The talk then
moved into a discussion of money,
a favoritecrallying point. In this
case, the cost of special programs'
for disadvantaged students was
discussed.
The recent stand of the Black
Law Students Association in favor
of more black students and fac-
ulty in the school came up. Flem-
ing responded, "I'm not familiar
with this particular action, but the
important thing for the professors
is not their color. We want teach-
e's who can do the best job. If
five, or even 20 of them are black,
fine."
It was inevitable that the mora-
torium should come up, and when
it did, Fleming began by reciting
Vice-President for Academic Af-
fairs Allen Smith's letter concern-
ing faculty prerogatives. He then
defended it on the basis of allow-
ing free speech. "I would have

RADICAL FILM SERIES
presents
SALT OF THE EARTH
This feature film classic depicts the long and bitter struggle of
Mexican-American zinc miners in New Mexico for better
working and living conditions. In semi-documentary fashion,
it portrays the integrity and courage of the miners as they
strike for equality with Anglo-Americans. Simultaneously, it
follows the struggle of the women for equality with the men
in the context of the hardships of their lives.
Among other awards, it won the International Grand Prize
for Best Film Exhibited in France in 1955. Due to controver-
sial court hearings it was temporarily blocked from com-
mercial showings.
