The Wayne State Free Uni-
versity is not new to Ann Ar-

eral attempts a. its formation

Tillotson's 0onc'eot is to cre-

development without the re-

A Free University course is
formed when two or mory xet-
ple with a common interest ard
some motivation decide to hold
a class. Topics and direction for
each class are deteimined by
the class-members themselves

conduct a class on community

The goal of the Free Univer-
sity, says Tillotson, is to pro-
vide an "open-ended experi-
ence," so there is no syllabus
or time limit. A class may go
on for years, as a course on the
John Kennedy assasination did
at a Free University in Cali-
Any type of class is con-
ceivable. At Wayne State
where 20 free university class-
es are in-operation, a Metho-
dist minister holds a class
called "Come let us play God."
Other classes include s u c h
topics as "Woman as nig-
ger," mysticism, "Who gov-
erns the university," comput-
er operation, and a study of
The hardest problem Tillot-
son envisions is obtaining
funding from the University
or some other organization in
order to print up a catalogue
and organize publicity.

problem in gutting student
support, and will hold his first
organizational meeting today

However in the past, the
Free University could not sur-
vive on this campus because
of a lack of organized sup-
port. In 1966 interest in a free
universiy led several profes-
sors to hold additional classes
for interested students.
Also in the summer of 1968
thre' hundred students form-
,d th Ann Arbor Free School
which offered classes on
campus, utopian communities,
guerrilla theatre, and tactics
for social change.
But the Free School declined
during the ensuing academic
semester. Its lack of structure
even led the people in the
course on utopian communi-
ties to break contact with the
Fro School and try to start
their own utopian society.

Speaking to newsmen after the
meeting, Lodge said that no par-
ticular statement made by t h e
other side provoked his action.
"It was a whole long series that's
been going back for weeks and
months and today was more of
the same," he said.
"There is obviouf ly not much
sense sitting there trying to re-
spond when they are saying the
same old intransigent and vitu-
perative things," said Lodge. "I
hope our action today may call
attention generally to the com-
pletely negative attitude which
has consistently characterized the
other side, and that there may be
progress in the future."

STATE SENATE PROPOSAL:
Discipline asken 0 t
X X ..... .. ......
By The Associated Press
A move to force Michigan State
University to expell and prosecute
150 black students for a disruptive
incident Tuesday failed to gain
immediate support in the Senate
The motion, introduced by Sen.
John Bowman (D-Wyandotte re-
suited from an attempted seizure
of a dormitory cafeteria Tuesday
So far MSU authorities have not
indicated whether any disciplinary
action will be taken.
Protesting the alleged harrass-
ment of a black student the night
before, some members of the Black
Liberation Front (BLF) entered
Holden Hall's cafeteria Tuesday
night. They reportedly carried at
least one billy club and told stu-
dents there to leave.
The dormitory administrators
then closed the cafeteria and told
students to eat at Wilson Hall.
On Monday night Sam Riddle,
a member of the BLF, tried to
enter the cafeteria through the
back door. Tom Haring, a student
cafeteria employe, told him no one
is allowed to enter through that
door. What happened after that is
not clear, but a fist fight began.
Haring has filed assault and bat-
tery charges against Riddle.
Bowman called the students "a
bunch of hoodlums trying to 'iet
their cause . . . into the limelighi''
and said MSU officials "can no
longer say it's just a little tan-
Bowman's resolution said the
students "walked into the cafe-
teria . . . and in a manner remins-
cent of the storm troopers of NAZI
Germany demanded that all wlielos
leave the dining room."
He urged that officials take "im-
mediate and strong action against
the perpetrators of this outra e
and that criminal action be in-
stituted against them and if they
are found to be students at the
university that they be expelled."
Sun. Coleman Young 'D-De-
rroit) told Bowman "The whole
. resolution is racist."
.Ie cited language in the resolu-
tioin, as first printed, that called
the students "black hooligans" ;nd
Bowman denied writing the res-
olution with those terms, saying
someone in the legislative service
bureau had come up with the lan-
guage. Bowman struck the words
"hooligans" and "bums."
Sen. Gary Byker (R-Hudson-
ville) moved that the Senate take
up the resolution immediately, by-
passing the scrutiny generally ac-
corded resolutions in the Senate
Senate business chairman Rob-
ert Vanderlaan (R-Grand Rapids)
opposed the motion as did Sen-
ators Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Ar-
bor), and Basil Brown (D-High-
