Illinois Bans
DuBois Club
By 8-2 Vote

Ties to National
'Subversive' Society
Special To The Daily
CHAMPAIGN-URBANA - The
Illinois Unversity board of trustees!
voted yesterday 8-2 to instruct
university officials to refuse rec-
ognition of the local W.E.B. Du-
Bois Club. The decision reversed a
6-3 vote of February to recognize
the. club.I
University President David D.
Henry said he would abide by the
board's decision. The board, in ef-
fect reversing its decision of last
month, acted on the basis of a re-
port from its general policy com-
mittee. Stating' that "informal
connections have been found to
exist" between the local and the
national DuBois Clubs.
The committee report said the
board had cleared the club for
recognition last month "on the
assumption that there was no link
formal or informal" between the
two groups.
Register as Subversive
The national DuBois organiza-
tion has been asked by the Attor-
ney General of the. United States
to register as a Communist front
group with the Subversive Activi-
ties Control Board (SACB).
However, the board has chal-
lenged the request, and the SACB
has made no decision on the issue
as yet.
The committee said it acted on
the basis of information from
Dean of StudentstStanton Millet.
After talking with Ralph Ben-
nett, local club founder, Millet
said that the local club "is ad-
mittedly affiliated or connected
with the national organization,
taking these terms to mean a co-
operative, informal, but clearly es-
tablished relationship."'
Not Chartered
The local group is not chart-
ered, however, and it is auto-
nomous and independent. The
local club is not formally bound
to tollow any policy directives of
the National organization.
Heary said, "I would ,have pre-
ferred to have had the DuBois
Club recognized." But, he said.
the University would lose funds if
it recognized the club because of
public misconceptions.
The Illinois student government
is reported to be considering
bringing a Communist speaker to
the campus in defiance of a state
law forbidding use of university
proporty by "seditious, subversive"
groups.
The state senate's attack of the
trustees' original decision to ree-
ognize .the Club on violation of
this law, the Clabau-h Act. is
presumed to have brought pressure
to bear on the reversal:

WASHINGTON (A)-The State Department announced yes-
terday that it will remove the 15-year-old ban on travel of
American citizens to Communist Albania. Relaxing the travel
curbs first imposed in the cold war years after World War II is
part of President's Johnson's annuonced policy to seek better
relations with Communist East E'urope. Still off-limits to U.S.
citizens are North Vietnam, Communist China, North. Korea, and
Cuba. Albania is an ideological ally of Communist China.
REED COLLEGE in Portland, Ore., will not provide class
rankings to local draft boards starting next fall, the Associated
Press reported yesterday. Acting President Byron Youtz said that
after the final grade review in the spring, a student who is
making satisfactory progress will have a statement to that effect
sent to his draft board. He said the college felt that class rank to
establish student deferments was educationally unsound and
undesirable and that Reed would work with other institutions to
have the ranking system changed.

THE LEGAL AID SERVICE, set up by Student Government
Council, has retained an attorney who will be available for
consultation every Friday afternoon from 2-5 p.m. beginning
March 17. The charge to students for the service is $2 for each
15 minutes. Appointments may be made in the SGC office, Rm.
1546 Student Activities Building (call 663-0553 for information);

ments.
JAMES JOYCE'S ULYSSES in the motion picture version
was presented in Ann Arbor last night without police inter-
ference.
Ann Arbor police chief Walter G. Krazny had discussed 'the
possibility that the film's showing raised legal issues with City
Attorney Jacob F. Fahrner and County Prosecutor Thomas F.
Delhey Monday.
Krazny told The Daily yesterday that a decision had been
reached in these conferences but would not reveal what had
been decided. Two plainclothes policemen did attend the open-
ing performance last night. Last night was Ulysses' world pre-
miere in 65 U.S. theatres and several more in other countries.
UNIVERSITY VARSITY AND CONCERT BANDS, under the
direction of Prof. George R. Cavender, will give their first for-
mal concert in University history tonight at 8 p.m. in Hill Aud.
The Varsity Band will play first featuring works by Tanese,
Handel and Thielman; the Concert Band will feature several
Ann Arbor premiere performances. No admission will be charged:
A CAMPUS CANDIDATE FORUM for all those running in
the Student Government Council election will be sponsored by
Inter-Douse Assembly, 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday in Aud. B. The
presidential candidates will speak first.
JAMES GRAHAM, chairman of the Associated Students of
Michigan State University, last weekend was elected new Mich-
igan Region chairman of the National Student Association.
MSU's student organization decided two weeks ago to rejoin NSA
after a year and a half out of the organization.
PRINCETON PRESIDENT ROBERT GOHEEN condemned
American escalation of the war in Vietnam and called for a halt
to the bombing of North Vietnam in his monthly press confer-
ence. He said President Johnson is "seeking peace in Vietnam but
not seeking it in the right way." Goheen endorsed the proposed
draft lottery and reaffirmed his opposition to student deferments
"except where very definite national need can be shown."

By JILL CRABTREE
The Citizen's Committee on
Economic Opportunity (C E O)
voted unanimously last night to
conduct a complete evaluation of
the Legal Aid Society (LAS), and
to draw up a list of alternative
suggestions if it was decided not to
continue financing the LAS as it
presently exists.
The committee has until April
30 to make its decision. If it votes
at that time to terminate aid to
the LAS, the society will remain
in operation until July 31, when
its contract with the SEO expires.
The LAS, a legal service which
provides counsel to people in the
county unable to afford other legal
aid, is staffed by University law
students and has handled 'over
1,000 cases since its inception in
July, 1966.j
Present Controversy
The present controversy between'
the LAS and the CEO began with
the filing of a protest with the
CEO over the selection of George
Stewart, a National Labor Rela-
tions Board attorney, as director'
of the clinic.
This protest was filed by three
CEO members appointed to repre-
sent the poor on the Legal Aid
board.
Complaints against the LAS
board include:
-Their apparent unwillingness
to listen to the representatives of
the poor on their board.
-Attitudes of apathy or oppo-
sition to the clinic among mem-
ber's of the clinic's board.
For instance, the funds for the
clinic were not used until several
months after they became avail-'
able. The process of hiring a direc-
tor was also not completed until
six months after the funding of
the clinic.

Past Staff Member
Informed Schwartz
Of Link Last August
By SUE REDFERN
Two of the current officers of
the National Student Association
knew 6f NSA's financial relation-
ship with the Central Intelligence
Agency before they were elected to
office.
Ed Schwartz, NSA national af-
fairs vice-president, said both he
and President Eugene Groves were
told of extensive CIA involvement
in NSA's overseas programs at the
annual conference last August
about a week before the elections
took place.
Sam Brown, chairman of the
supervisory board of NSA, said
Feb. 17 that only, after having
been elected and signing a secur-
ity oath was a student told of the
CIA involvement. Brown also said
only one or two senior officers of
NSA knew of the relationship.
NSA waited to break the story
of the financial arrangement until
after Ramparts Magazine ran ad-
vertisements for an article on the
'relationship because they didn't
want to "compromise the integrity
of innocent people," according to
Schwartz.

AT STUDENT REQUEST:
Total Year-End Credit Hours
Determine 'Full-Time' Status

'Quite Shocked'
"I was quite shocked, quite an-
gry about the whole business,"
Schwartz said, in recalling his re-
action to the revelation.
The CIA was disclosed last
month as covertly funding NSA's
overseas activities as well as the
activities of dozens of labor, edu-
cation. church and student groups
through "front" foundations.
Last August 'before the NSA
Congress, Schwartz was told of the
relationship. At that time Eugene
Groves, current NSA president,
was in London and could not be
reached. Groves was told when he
returned to the United States a
week later, according to Schwartz,
and subsequently elected presi-
dent.
Schwartz described the quandry
that faced him: "My question
was should I still run for office?"
He decided in the affitmative.
At the congress, Schwartz con
tinued, Rick Stearns, who was
later elected international affairs
vice-president, was curious about
an extensive security check which
he had been undergoing. When
Stearns was informed, after the
election of the reasons for the
check, he was "furious, as all of
us were," Schwartz said.
After Schwartz, Groves, and
Stearns had taken office, "the
question of disclosure of the. CIA
relationship came up several
times, schwartz said.
y { Ramparts Magazine
When the NSA officers learned
that Ramparts Magazine would
publish an article disclosing the
NSA-CIA financial link, a series
of staff meetings were held to
draft a statement about the rela-
tionship and 'to decide the date of
its release. They decided to wait
until Ramparts broke the story.
Replying 'to charges in the
column written by Columnist Jack
Anderson, an associate of Drew
Pearson, that he had urged the
NSA to withhold the information

tional deferment), Schwartz said,

The Office of Academic Affairs
is auditing undergra-, da te stu-
Jents' hours of academic credit to
provide certification of "iull-tine"
student status to the selective
service boards of those students
requesting the determination.
If a student has not completed
the number of hours indicated by
the study plan for his school and
degree program, his local draft
board will be notified that he is
ao longer making normal progress
toward his degree.
Certification of full-time status
:epends on a minimum number of
l ernester hours completed in each
academic year ending in August.
Students are advised to check
their own records to insure that
their progress will meet the re-
iuired schedule, as outlined by the
table, at the end of the present
winter term, according to Ernest
Zimmerman, assistant to the vice-
president for academic affairs.
If the student does not fulfill
[he number of hours required for
full-time certification, his name
will be sent to the coilns n- tlii-
Fice of his school. The student
must submit a "study plan" to

last fall and forwarded to the
draft boards of those students re-
questing the information. All stu-
dents enrolled for 12 semester
hours credit were certified as full-
time then. Draft boards generally
base student student deferments on
the "normal progress" towards a
degree.
The University has found in the
past that students not always tak-
ing a proportional yearly share
of the total academic hours re-
quired were still graduating within

the minimum number of years for
their particular program.
According to Zimmermann, a
survey of the minimum number of
hours requir d in each school and
program reduced the certification
of full-time status to the yearly
minimum shown below.
The number of credit hours are
not sent to the draft board unless
the student requests this be done;
only the information that a stu-
dent is full-time or not full-time
is released in this process.

there has been any breach of con-
tract or failure to perform services
by the LAS.
The CEO will negotiate with
the present board in an attempt
to bring it up to Office of Eco-
nomiz Opportunity standards for
representation of the poor. They
plan to talk with students whor
have worked in the Clinic and
former clients as well as board:
members. If the board proves un-
satisfactory, the CEO is prepared
to create a new one.
Mrs. Joan Adams, one of the
Ann Arbor representatives to the
CEO and chairman of the sub-
committee appointed to study the
activities of the LAS, made it
clear that the investigation is not
intended as a personal attack on
Stewart.

Greenberg said that SGC must
"create a bond between the stu-
dent and his representatives." She
proposed that SGC members go
right into the dorms to widen
contact with student opinion, and
that SGC hold referendums to as-
sertain the general student view-
point on issues concerning them.
Greenberg also called for an
