Letter Urges ,n Mi]C1 gaI 1



Calls End to Air Raids
'Necessary Prelude'
To Early Negotiation
Over 600 members of the Uni-
versity academic staff have signed
aj letter calling for an end to the
United States bombing of North
The letter states: "In accord
with the considered judgment of
United Nation Secretary-General
U Thant that a cessation of U.S.
bombing of the North is a neces-
sary prelude to negotiation in
Vietnam, we urge you to announce
at the earliest possible moment
an unconditional halt to such
bombing raids."
Prof. William. Porter, - chairman
of the journalism department,
hopes that many other universi-
ties will follow suit, thereby pro-
viding accumulative pressure which
will influence President Johnson
and his advisors to limit the war
The signers included ten deans
and officers, sixteen department
chairmen, and the directors of
eight research centers and insti-.
tutes. According to Prof. Leslie
Kish of the sociology department
and one of the draftees of the let-
ter, "there was a wide range of
response with all department con-
c tributing."
However he said that the best
response was from the literary
college, and the highest academic
levels in all schools and in the
center most directly concerned
such as the Center for South and
Southeast Asian Studies.
Kish felt that the general re-
action to the letter was "spontan-
eous and enthusiastic." Favorable
comments ran in the hundreds
while altogether I heard of only
four negative responses," he said.
Trying to explain why so many
intellectuals participated in the
letter, Kish felt that "they prob-
ably believed that something wrong
was going on and that they want-
ed to express themselves as par-
ticipants in the academic commu-
nity. They want to go on record as
intellectuals that do not agree with
our present Vietnam policy."
Kish said that this was similar
to the attitudes and response of
the French intellectuals during the
Algerian war.
The University petition was
stimulated by a similar one signed
by 462 Yale faculty members sev-
eral weeks ago and a Michigan
State University letter calling for
a halt in the Vietnam bombing
that has collected between 400
and 500 signatures.

Effect on 'u,
Telegram Signed
By Leaders of Both
Houses, Parties
More than 35 state legislators
yesterday sent a telegram to Uni-
versity President Harlan Hatcher
saying they were "appalled" by
the action of the Board in Control
of Student Publications in failing
to accept The Daily senior edi-
tors' recommendations for new
The telegram stated: "We are
all friends of the University who
have defended and fought for the
principles of academic freedom
and freedom of speech. We wish
to avoid seeing the University suf-
fer from adverse, publicity marring
a great tradition and a great Uni-
The telegram was initiated by
Rep. Jack Faxon (D-Detroit) Its
signers included much of, the lead-
ership of both parties in both
the House of Representatives and
the 'Senate. Between 25 and 30
representatives signed the meas-
ure, including William Hampton of
Birmingham, the Republican floor
leader;. William Ryan of Detroit,
the Democratic floor leader, and
Oak Park Democrats Daniel Cpop-
er and Albert Kramer.
Nine senators signed the meas-
ure. They included Anthony
Stamm (R-Kalamazoo), Harold
V olk e m a (R-Holland), chair-
man of the Senate Education Com-
mittee; Basil Brown, Colman
Young, Arthur Cartwright, Roger
Craig and Arthur Hart, all De-
troit Democrats, and Sandor Levin,
of Berkley, the Democratic floor
He made it clear that the leg-
islators who signed the telegram
were acting as concerned individ-
uals and were not attempting to
use their legislative power to
"blackjack" the University.
Faxon said he spent much of
yesterday talking to people in
Lansing, including people in the
governor's and attorney general's
"Everyone thinks very highly of
Roger Rapoport," Faxon said. He
also said that many of' the people
he spoke to were very favorably
impressed by an editorial praising
Rapoport's qualifications and abil-
ities, which appeared in yesterday's
Detroit Free Press.

completely equal with them.
A speaker in the University Ac-
tivities Center Symposium on the
Urban Ghetto, Lynch maintained .
that black power could not be {>'
achieved through integration, and
that integration could only come
after American whites had learned
to accept the Negro on a basis of x
perfect equality.
In response to a question, Lynch ,
'declared nonviolence to be "down 44
the drain" as a valid premise and
defended the use of violence where
neeeded for retaliatory purposes.
In frequent references to the
Vietnam war, he charged the
American whites with "national
immorality and corrosive ,corrup- :
tion on a grand scale." Lynch re-
ferred to whites as "perfidious"
and charged them with conducting
"psychological and physical gen- .
ocide" against blacks.
This is done in part, he said,
by asking Negro youth to fight
"another color war" in Vietnam
while their families are being de-
nied human rights at home. To
the inequalities of the draft as a :;.;t e
cause of oppression, Lynch added n ;
the drain of Negro economic re-
sources to support white areas and
the "psychological debasement".

Comment on Hatcher Talk
Some other University officials
offered comment on the Presi-
dent's remarks last Friday mor-
ning, however.
Contacted yesterday, Cutler
said President Hatcher "didn't
make that report (disclosed yes-
terday) in my presence." Asked if
Hatcher had made any mention of
Daily appointments, Radock said,
"I don't even remember. I was in
and out of the meeting quite a bit
to take long-distance phone calls."
Regent Paul Goebel of Grand
Rapids, said yesterday he "knew
the President has been in contact
with him (Cooperrider) about the
Daily," but said he had the im-,
pression that these contacts had
been limited to general discussion
of The Daily's performance rather
than appointments.
