'Sex In The Sixties:' The


and Topless,


The "Mother of State Univer-
sities" (which refers sequicenten-
nially to the University) appeared
Thursday night along with the
Mothers of Invention in ABC-
TV;s hour long telecast "Sex in
the Sixties." Written by Univer-
sity alumnus Robert P. Goldman
and produced by Irving Gitlin,
the documentary attempted to
examine sexual attitudes stan-
dards, changes, and trends-in
American society.
Opening with the psychedelic
music and antics of the Mothers
of Invention and flashes of New
York City's 42nd St. marquees, the
program progressed through 51
minutes of interviews and brief
visits to the places where the na-
tion's action is.

Not Used
As Protest
Haber Says Students
Turned in Grades
Despite Faculty Move
The pass-fail option given to
some students last semester as a
means of protesting the class rank-
ing policy of the administration
reportedly was not requested by
any student.
The pass-fail option, a policy
initiated through a pledge of 35
faculty members during the Uni-
versity-Student Government Coun-
cil clash of last month, allowed
students to request instructors to
submit no letter grade as a means
of showing his dissatisfaction with
University policy towards class
ranking for the Selective Service.
Two Options
The pass-fail option is not to
be confused with the formal
change in'academic policy which,
when implemented, will enable
junior and senior students to at-
tend onenclass each semester In an
area outside their field of con-
centration in which they will re-
ceive only a pass or fail grade.
According to Prof. William
Gamson cf the sociology depart-
ment, one of the original signers
of a pledge to withhold grades al-
together, the petitioners "decided
to turn in grades unless the stu-
dent specifically asked for a pass-
fail. Under the circumstances (the
University policy classifying a
pass-fail as a 'No Report' grade or
an eventual 'E') students weren't
encouraged to do so."
No Requests
To Gamson's knowledge, there
were no such requests for a pass-
fail option.
Dean William Haber of the lit-
erary college reported there were
few of "No Report" grades and
that apparently no student re-
quested 'that his letter grade not
be submitted to the University.
Haber termed the absence of
pass-fail grades "an interesting
commentary" in that "folks must
have r alized that there were ser-
ious disadvantages to the students
affected" and decided not to put

TOKYO-Peking radio acknowledged today there is a
"small group" of anti-Maoists within Red China's army and
'"even now they are staging a counterattack."
A Chinese-language broadcast monitored in Tokyo described
the struggle with the army dissidents as "acute and complicated."
Other Peking broadcasts claimed revolutionary "rebels"
throughout the country were rallying behind Chairman Mao
Tse-tung and that the people's liberation army backed his decision
to reorganize the party's Military Cultural Revolution Committee.
KEY EDUCATION advisors in the Johnson Administration
have nothing yet in the way of higher education proposals to
offer to this session of the Congress, highly-informed sources say.
"We don't have anything for higher education this session,"
one White House education advisor is quoted as having said. A
senior official in the Department of Health, Education and Wel-
fare has added that "we've got our backs to the wall with the
Congress this time," the sources say.

THE UNIVERStTY's Professional Theatre Program will play
a key role in a series of statewide theater tours being estab-
lished by the Michigan State Council for the Arts.
CoAnnouncement of the tour was made at the council's State
1sConference on the Arts in Lansing.
Robert C. Schnitzer,, PTP executive director and a member
of the council's theater committee, said PTP will organize a tour
that will take live theatrical performances into approximately
' 20 communities and school districts in the Upper Peninsula and
the northern Lower Peninsula.
It is believed that this will be the first time that many of
these communities will have had the opportunity to view a
theatrical production of professional caliber.
WASHINGTON-The United States is producing stockpiles
of chemical and biological weapons that "provide a far-ranging
offensive capability," a leading scientific journal said yesterday.
Such stockpiles are one result of a research and development pro-
gram on which the military services are spending about $150
millon yearly. said an article in the technical journal Science,
the oficial weekly of the American Association for the Advance-
ment of Science.
mThe article, authored by Elinor Langer, a staff writer, said
without amplification that: "U.S. policy concerning the use of
chemical and biological weapons is ambiguous and contradictory.
and is rendered even more so by the use of chemical weapons in
Vietnam. Official secrecy makes a complete portrait of the
chemical and biological weapons program difficult to construct."
The writer declared that within the Defense Department, the
program "is represented as being some kind of cross between
defensive preparations, on the one hand. and peaceful by-products
in preventive medicine, on the other." She added: "Defensive
preparations are only one part of the program, for the United
States is engaged in a comprehensive and flourishing . . . effort
in chemical and biological weapons."

Negro Schools Get

For students who would like to
teach in a predominately Negro'
college there are two organiza-

vary greatly in academic quality,
size and resources. However, they,
have one thing in common: they
say they need more faculty. Since
they offer many programs in the
summer, these colleges critically
need replacements for vacation-
ing teachers as well as larger full_
staff academic staffs.
!These programs are diverse in
nature. Some help raise the scho-_
lastic level of entering freshmen,
many of whom have never owned
a book or been in a library.
RST and STP help fulfill this
need by trying to find teachers

Conflict of interest apparently

affecting the educational institu-
tions that employ them, has been
sharpened since Leroy Augenstein,
chairman of the bio-physics de-
partment at Michigan State Uni-
versity, became a member of the
board Jan. 1.
Now before the board is a pro-
posal to expand thempresent two-
year medical program at MSU in-
to a full four year curriculum.
Rev. Charles Morton, a lecturer,
at Oakland University, and MSU
branch, has also been attacked
for voting on the medical edu-
cation issue.
In answer to these charges,
Morton said yesterday, "The point
of the question of conflict of in-
terest is to get you to resolve
the conflict or resign from the
board." It is a matter of the rela-
tionship of the two positions and,
thus, "if you remain on the board,
a conflict of interest is not a
justifiable reason for abstaining,"
Morton explained.
Morton also pointed out:
The key word in conflict of
interest legislation is "substantial"
and Morton is a lecturer, not a
full faculty member with a vote
on faculty affairs. He is no ad-
ministrative or policy-makiiia po-
sition at Oakland.
Not College Representatives
Board member Carmen Delli-
Quadri, an instructor at Michigan
Technological University, s a i d
"Board members are elected state-
wide and run as individual cit-
izens, not as representatives of the
institutions they work for."
Peter Oppewall, a board mem-
ber who works for Northern Mich-
igan University, said, however,
that he is in favor of the board
taking a formal policy stand on
conflict of interest since five of
the eight board members receive
pay from state-supported educa-
tional institutions.
