alleged obscenity of the film on
the basis of the showing of only
ten minutes of the picture. The
courts have held that the socially
redeeming qualities of an artistic
work outweight charges of ob-
scenity brought against individual
portions of the work.
"Equally important is the in-
terference with the opportunity
of the University community to
make its own judgments in the
field of experimental film mak-
ing. We do not permit encroach-
ments upon the right of individ-
uals to express new ideas, no mat-
ter how offensive, in fields such

as literature, theology, or eco-
nomics. We are similarly bound
to protect the rights of individ-
uals interested in the visual arts.
"Irrespective of the quality of
the film in question, the action
taken in denying to the Cinema
Guild audience the right to see a
full showing of 'Flaming Crea-
tures' represented an intrusion
upon First Amendment rights."
Meanwhile another ad-hoc stu-
dent group is circulating a petition
against Cinema Guild. The peti-
tion voices objection to showing
the film and declares that Cinema
Guild doesn't deserve support in
its court case.

(Continued from Page 1)
Patricia Shannon, '67, saw seven
minutes of the film and claimed
that "it was not pornographic in
the legal sense." You were alien-
ated from the movie, repulsed by
it rather than begin drawn into
it and aroused by it," she con-
tinued.
Tonsor expressed the opinion
that "I'm opposed to censorship,
but there is an appropriate place
for actions of every kind. If the
members of Cinema Guild wanted
to see a pornographic stag movie
the place to go is a private club,
not the University. To call this
movie artistic is just so much
crap."
Both Fiedler and Aiken felt that
the University should support
Cinema Guild."If it were my Uni-

versity, I would hope that it would
stand by the student, giving them
any legal counsel and protection
they needed and an explanation
why educational grounds were vio-
lated in this case without pro-
tection," said Fiedler.
Tonsor claimed the University
should take action only when "an
officer of the University is ar-
rested, otherwise it shouldn't do
anything.
Many students felt that the
University should offer legal coun-I
sel because a faculty member had
given permission for the showing
of the film. However, most said
they were resigned to lack of Uni-
versity support. "The University
is sticking its head in the sand
on this issue. But that's typicalx
of what they do anyway," said
Miss Goodstein.

came in the face of an overwhelm-

Sachs is urging faculty members

Peace Corps Officials Study Program;
Attempt To Improve Training Procedures

i
I

Collegiate Press Service
WASHINGTON - There's a
phrase gaining currency within
the Peace Corps-"university in
dispersion."
Staff members and volunteers
use it to define the highly suc-
cessful organization, and with that
in mind they are creating train-
ing programs that may be radical
models of educational reform for
this country.
Since its inception six years ago,
the Peace Corps has relied largely
on universities and academic fac-
ulties to conduct three-month
training programs. These usually1
consist of intensive academic, and
sometimes p h y s i c a l, exercises.
They are often rigid, authorita-
rian, and irrelevant to Peace
Corps activities overseas.
"What has been wrong with
Peace Corps training are the same
things that are wrong with higher
education in general," according
to Associate Director Harris Wof-
ford,
Reforms Recommended
Wofford was appointed head of
an Education Task Force in Aug.
1965, charged with developing
plans to "move training from a
three-month operation to a two-
year or three-year process of Vol-
unteer education." One year ago
the task force produced a draft
report indicating the weaknesses
of Peace Corps training and re-
commending reforms. A final re-
port is expected this month which
will evaluate the new programs
run during the past year.
The Task Force draft report in-
dicted traditional training meth-
ods, and by implication, the uni-
versities which had developed
them. Among other recommenda-
tions, the report urged that:
"-s
Want to be more
than a face
in the crowd?
At Ford Motor Company we're
looking for better ideas-
in everything from automotive
marketing to steel-making and
basic research. Ideas that
don't come from people who look

-Training concentrate on start-
ing processes of learning, rather
than an cramming as much in-
formation as possible into the vol-
unteers' heads.
Community Action
-Programs include community
action in unfamiliar environments,
either in slums, rural areas, Job
Corps camps, or in the host coun-
try itself.
-Staff members should not use
standard lecture methods of
teaching. There must be a cohesive
faculty to plan the program, work
together throughout it, and parti-
cipate along with the volunteers.
-Volunteers should be trained
in small groups of no more than
100, in which individual needs and
interests are respected and the
trainees participate in some of the
decision-making and evaluation.
-Instead of treating training
institutions as service stations, to
which the Peace Corps comes, fills
up, and drives off, ,the training
program must be only the begin-
ning of the university's role. The
faculty must be invited in vari-
ous ways to participate in the
continuing education of the vol-
unteers overseas, and the volun-
teers encouraged to develop con-
titnuing relationships with par-
ticular faculty members or col-
leges.
In effect, the Peace Corps is
attempting to become a university,
but one unlike any other in the
world.
One recent training program,

whose members just left for Ni- I
geria, was set up in Roxbury, a
Negro ghetto of Boston. The 60
trainees were scattered in private
homes in the area, and allowed to
develop their own community ac-
tion projects.
The trainees came together in
groups of 15 for seminars and
language instruction. Each sem-
inar group had a $1,300 allowance.
to furnish an empty apartment as
a library and seminar meeting
place. The trainees provided the
substance of the seminars, devel-
oping their own curriculum. Only
two books were assigned at the
start: "The Autobiography of Mal-
colm X" and Graham Green's
"The Quiet American."
Although a few new volunteers
left the first day of the project,
most of the trainees seemed to
find the setting a challenge.
Unstructured
The project was highly un-
structured, and seminars became
non-directive sessions d u r i n g
which the trainees examined their
relationships and activities in
Roxbury. Staff members were al-
most as uncertain as the trainees
about the goals of the project,
and decision-making was decen-
tralized and free-wheeling. "The
great raging controversy" of the
three months, according to Roger
Landrum, the project's director,
was over whether trainees had
real decision-making power.
Landrum, a 29-year old ex-
Peace Corps volunteer who was
one of the authors of the Educa-

tion Task Force's report, devel-I
oped and directed the Roxbury
training project, e defined the
project as "a metaphor-the way
we solve proble'ms here may pro-
vide ways for solving problems in
Nigeria."
Landrum is now trying to fol-
low up the project with work-
shops in Nigeria, led by a perma-
nent training staff stationed over-
seas. "Volunteers abroad tend to
depend upon each other rather
than move outside; we should re-
inforce their ability to deal with
the people of the community they
are in," he said.
Weaknesses
The Roxbury project was not
without weaknesses. Several train-
ees expressed a desire for more
"intellectual substance"-"I didn't
learn anything about teaching law
in Nigeria" was a Berkeley law
school graduate's comment.
The project also seemed to turn
in upon itself, rather than out to-
ward the community. A few train-
ees set up a school and involved
students and parents in a new
educational experience. But the
great majority of the volunteers
did not take the initiative and
were content to attend the sessions
provided for them by the program.
The effect of projects like the
one in Roxbury is difficult to
measure. On the one hand, its goal
is to create a capacity for living
in and learning from another cul-
ture. Its success, then, wil be de-
termined by the activities of the
trainees during the next two years
in Africa.
