CAMBRIDGE CONVENTION:
SDS To Train Organizers,
Move REP Headquarters

Non-Student
Rule Faces
Referendum

CLB Issues

By SUSAN ELAN
Associate Managing Editor
Special To The Daily
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Na-
tional Council of Students for aF
Democratic Society (SDS) voted
yesterday to hire and train 30
full-time regional teacher-organiz-
ers, to move the headquarters of
the Radical Education Project
(REP) from Ann Arbor to Chi-
cago, and to give full support to
the Spring Mobilization to End
the War In Vietnam.

The decision of the National
Council of SDS to train 30 organiz-
ers will become the primary re-j
sponsibility of REP. These region-
al organizers will be responsible
for meeting the immediate educa-
tional needs of the local SDS
chapters. This will entail the dis-
tribution of film, pamphlets and
aid in campus organizing on such
issues as student power and the
draft.
A summer institute will be set up
for the intensive training of the
teacher-organizers.

Late World News
By The Associated Press
BERLIN-WEST BERLIN police announced last night that
they have seized 11 extremists involved in a bomb plot against
"the life or health" of Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey on
his scheduled visit to Berlin today.,
A police spokesman said the reported plot against Humphrey,
who is on a two-week fence-mending tour of Europe, included
plans to attack him "by means of bombs with unknown chemicals
in plastic bags and with other dangerous instruments such as
stones."
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA - The U.N. Command said this
morning that U.S.- soldiers manning a guard post in Korea's de-
militarized zone clashed with North. Korean intruders and three
North Koreans were killed.
The incident, one of the most serious since the 1953 armis-
tice, occurred yesterday afternoon in the southern half of the
buffer zone, the command said.
A DUKE UNIVERSITY student senator told the men's stu-
dent government association that he had "voted twice" in the
recent Duke elections "to prove that it could be done." Alan
Amery, senior fraternity senator, now faces possible impeach-
ment, although he said his purpose was to show "wide-spread
cheating" in the elections. He wants them reheld.
The election which set up a new student government joining
previously separate men's and women's organizations still has
no administrative approval. Students have continued to function
under the new constitution since March 18 against administrative
request not to do so.
A GROUP CALLED "STRAIGHT," in cooperation with
Cornell University's Student for a Democratic Society chapter,
has been soliciting the names of students promising to destroy
their draft cards.
On March 10 a student-faculty board decided to forbid such
campus activity. But several days ago the Faculty Committee
on Student Affairs suspended the enforcement of the decision.
The faculty board said that the ruling "will be held in
abeyance until a study to deternine the relation between Univer-
sity regulations and civil law is completed."

SEVERAL HUNDRED STUDENTS at Lincoln University in
Jefferson City, Mo., staged a noisy, food throwing demonstration
last night in the school cafeteria.
Their near riotous performance brought cancellation of the
university headliners banquet in which several newsmen were to
have received awards.
At the dinner hour the students suddenly started overturning
tables, tossing chairs and dumping trays of food.
One student complained, "The food has been lousy all year."
DR. HARVEY V. SPARKS, physiology instructor at the
Medical School, has been appointed a Markle Scholar in Aca-
demic Medicine. Each year for five years the Markle Foundation

search and on his "development as a teacher."

Steve Johnson, an Ann Arbor
member of REP, believes "The de-
cision shows a growing desire to
have people with political exper-
ience going out to local chapters.
This is a more effective way ofj
- interesting people than merely us-
ing pamphlets and films. The shift
means that the travelers (orga-
nizers) will not be separated from
the national office. It may mean a
loss of Ann Arbor support, but
radical education only makes sense
with people in the field."
The National Council also gave
promise of full support to the
Spring Mobilization to End the
War in Vietnam which will take
place on April 15 in New York
and San Francisco simultaneously.
The Spring National Council of
SDS which began here last Sunday
has been discussing such questions
as problems of the campus move-
ment, long-range perspectives for
student radicals, National Student
Union, draft resistance, and the
SDS summer convention.
About 125 people are in attend-
ance. Delegates have come from
the University and Cornell Uni-
versity, Washington University,
Dartmouth College, the University
of Chicago, Columbia University,
Harvard University and several
other schools.
Lee Webb, chairman of the Na-
tional Council, said "SDS now has
due-paying 6000 members which
the national office knows of. With
the new system of teacher-organ-
izers, I believe the membership of
SDS can be tripled within a year.
Practically every campus now has
an SDS person. It is really a na-
tional movement. There are prob-
ably between 25,000 to 30,000 peo-
ple involved in radical activity."1

Petitioning for the referendum
is being organized by Inter-fra-
ternity Council, Panhellenic Asso-
ciation, Inter-house Assembly and
SGC members John Preston, '69;
E. O. Knowles, '70, and Kay Stans-
bury, '70. SGC would be required
to hold a referendum in their reg-
ular fall election in November if,
three per cent of the student body
signs the petitions.
Would Open Groups
The SGC amendment would al-
low up to half the membership of
any recognized student organiza-
tion to consist of non-students.
Under current regulations, student
organizations- may only have stu-
dent members and officers,
IFC President Bruce Getzan,
'68, and Panhel President Ginny
Mochel, '68, were almost unani-
mously instructed by their organ-
izations to vote against the pro-
posed amendment at meetings
this week.
Several fraternity presidents said
they opposed the change because
non-students representing student
organizations might shed a bad
light on the entire University.
Miss Mochel said she was against
the amendment because, "The Of-
fice of Student Affairs will prob-
ably veto the motion and SGC will
refuse to recognize the veto.
Things could be blown sky high
over a relatively unimportant
issue."
The three SGC members feel
that students should be allowed to
make a decision on this question
themselves. They expressed con-
cern over non-student control of
organizations leading to actions
which would not be in the interest
of the University but which could
not be controlled.

Report on
Cinema Guild
Board Questions
Relationship of 'U'
To City Community
By DAVID KNOKE
The Faculty Assembly's Civil
Liberties Board yesterday offered
"to consult with University admin-
istration and other members of
the University community in de-
veloping procedures to encourage
a proper and cooperative relation-
ship with the community at large
in the manner of civil liberties"
in a report concerning the Cinena
Guild film seizure case.
The report, mailed yesterday to
faculty members, stated "While
law enforcement agencies ought
to exercise judicious and careful
determination of the purposes of
activities in an educational setting,
the University community
(has) a responsibility to show care
and good taste, and to encourage
a positive educational environ-
ment."
Services Offered
"We want to show we're not
just standing on the sidelines,"
said Prof. Abraham Kaplan of the
philosophy deparment and chair-
man of the Board.
"The Board is in a position to
offer its services, ideas and re-
sources. I think a change in ideas
about academic freedom is needed
all up the line from students and
faculty through the administration
hierarchy and in the city.
"The various components of the
University and the larger com-
munity should sit down and try
to solve this common problem,'
Kaplan added.
The Civil Liberties Board said
"The Board is concerned with the
merits or shortcomings of the film
seized" on Jan. 18 by Ann Arbor
police.
"No member of the Board has
seen the film. The concerns of the
Board are with the implications
and possible precedents of the
seizure."
The statement warns that the
seizure of the film "Flaming Crea-
tures" and arrest of four Guild
members on obscenity charges
"could well have what the courts
have described as a "chilling ef-
fect" on freedom of expression
and freedom of inquiry.
"Are guests of the University or
its duly constituted organizations,
texts and other materials in Uni-
versit libraries, books recommend-
ed and lectures presented by Uni-
versity faculty also subject to sim-
ilar unilateral and sudden sup-
pression?," asked the report.
Lists Implications
The report lists the "implica-
tions and precedents" of the sei-
zure as "the manner in which the
film was seized, the realties be-
tween law enforcement agencies
and the University, the relation-
ship of the University with its
duly conistituted organizations,
and the rights and responsibilities
of the University-in freedom of
expression and freedom of in-
quiry."
"To this end," concludes the
statment, "the Board offers to
consult with the University ad-
ministration and other members
of the University community in
developing procedures to encour-
age a proper and cooperative re-

lationship with the community at
large in matters of civil liberties."
The Board statement reviews the
relationship of Cinema Guild to
the University and gives a brief
account of the seizure of "Flaming
Creatures."
The Board also said it did not
"believe the purpose of showing
the film was to embarrass the Uni-
versity." In the report, the Board
noted that "a reasonable and
proper relationship exists between
the University and Cinema Guild,
that responsibility was properly
placed ,that past performance in-
dicated the responsibility would be
carried out properly."
The statement issued questions
the propriety of charging a police
} officer "with sole responsibility of
judging the moral acceptability of
' a publicly advertised and openly
presented work to the extent of
