Fleming Defends
Picketers' Rights
President-Eleet Quest-ions Unlimited
Freedom of Students To Protest
Robben W. Fleming, newly elected president of the University,
yesterday morning defended the right of picketers to express their
points of view but added "I don't think it is an inalienable right to
picket anywhere or in unlimited numbers."
Fleming's response came in reference to a question addressed to
him by a student activist who referred to the arrest for assault of a
non-student Friday in the lobby of the League and the alleged re-
striction of anti-war pickets in the lobby.
Fleming said he did not have "strong views either way" on pro-
hibiting pickets inside University buildings to bring their views before

Speak'Aag to an audience of 50
persons in the Union attending a
question-and-answer session spon-
sored by Student Government
Council, Fleming said he would
have to place any specific posi-
tion on demonstrations within the
context of the Madison campus
of the University of Wisconsin,
where he is currently chancellor.
Recent picketing of Dow Chemi-
cal Corp. interviewers was halted
by the arrest of picketers, he said,
when demonstrators moved into
an old building deemed to be un-
safe for their weight.
"Its difficult to draw the line
on demonstrations," he said. "I'm
not sure you can have an exact
rule about what one means by
'embarrassment' and 'close physi-
cal proximity' to University guests
that violates the rights of speak-
ers and listeners."
Fleming also declined to com-
ment on his views concerning the
draft referendum last fall in
which students voted to end class
ranking. He said that the presi-
dential commission studying the
ranking issue should not be sway-
ed by his views.
He said that he would give
neither the referendum nor the
commission recommendations pri-
ority but would try to balance
them when making a policy deci-
sion. However, he added, a ref-
erendum with males only, those
persons directly affected by the
draft, would probably carry more
weight than the student popula-
tion at large.
In response to a question on
classified research, Fleming said
that he was "unalterably oppos-
ed" to research that would "un-
dermine the function of the Uni-
versity." He said that he would
be "heavily influenced" by a stu-
dent-faculty referendum that vot-
ed to end classified contracts, but

Fleming said his position at
Wisconsin has been to favor and
support increased student partici-
pation in "committees across the
board and other structures."
In his opening statement, he
said, "One thing is clear: we need
to find an effective mechanism
for meeting with students. I'm
looking forward to finding some

Study Shows
On Upswing
Consumer attitudes and expec-
tations were up during the first
quarter of 1967 after 12 months of
decline, the University's Survey
Research Center reports.
SRC's Index of Consumer Senti-
ment registered 92.2 for the quar-
ter-up 3.9 from the 88.3 of De-
cember-November, 1966. Previous-
ly, the index had declined from
102.6 in November, 1965.
The center's report attributed
the improvement to the fact that
bad news has been "less salient"
during the last few months and
to the eontinuing unabated "satis-
faction with favorable income
Data for the index was obtained
from personal interviews with a
sample of 3100 families, represent-
ative of all families in the con-
tinental United States. The SRC
has done similar quarterly surveys
since 1951.
SRC's surveys on "Consumer
Attitudes and Inclinations to Buy"
are directed by Professors George
Katona and Eva L. Mueller of the
economics department.
The report's emphasis on the
decreasing "salience" of bad news
ties-in with what Prof. Katona
calls the "frequently observed"
phenomena of habituation: that
"news appears to influence con-
sumer attitudes and consumer
spending to a great extent when it
is new."
In 1966, the rep~ort contends,
"American consumers learned of
a variety of developments which
created doubt and uncertainty,"
The index dropped more than 14
points to 88.3 between November,
1965 and November, 1966.
But during the last few months
"consumers have not heard of new
adverse developments," according
to the SRC report. "Possibly the
news has improved somewhat.
Most pronouncedly, the adverse
developments have become fani-
liar; habituation has set in and
made the unfavorable news less
salient and less threatening," the
report adds.
Continuing consumer satisfac-
tion with favorable income trends
has contributed to the upswing in
the index. "Most families may
now, just as a year ago, be divided
into two almost equal groups:
