Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom
L ack of Undesignated Drive Funds larms Oi

Cf icials

The University's massive fund
drive, scheduled for completion
this coming spring, is over 80 per
cent of the way towards its $55
million goal, but it is still un-
certain whether or not the drive
will really give the University what
it wants.
Almost all the major gifts, which
constitute the bulk of the $48.6
million thus far received have been
earmarked for specific projcts. In
fact, according to Jack Hamilton,
assistant to the vice-prsident for
University-relations, only about $2
million has been donated without
spcific usage outlined.
It is this, general fund which
many feel is the heart of the fund
drive, for this is money given to
the University "carte blanche" to
do with as it likes, not as the
donor dictates. Much of the do-

Protest against the University's

rankings will be !presented by
Voice political party, the local
chapter of the Students, for a
Democratic Society, in the form
of a petition to Student Govern-
ment Council, according to Voice
member Gary Rothberger, '67.
The petition calls for a referen-
dum on the proposal that, "The
University should cease the com-
pilation of ranks which can be
used to decide which students can
be drafted." It also stated that the
' referendum be binding and that it
"should be immediately heeded by
the administration."
The petition, which has been
circulating since the beginning of
registration, contains 1100 signa-
tures. Over 100 of these were col-
lected at the Voice rally yesterday
afternoon on the Diag.
Deals with Students
SGC President Edward Robin-
son, '67, who originally suggested
the referendum, feels that "the
draft question is a problem deal-
ing with the students and should
be decided by the students alone."
Robinson also agrees with Voice's
wish to have the referendum bind-
ing on the administration.
Mark Simons, '67, SGC admin-
istrative vice-president, believes
that a referendum would be the
beginning of an increase in all-
campus expressions of opinion.
Along with SGC members Mar-
garet Asman and Ruth Baumann,
Simons also said he thinks that
the referendum is the least that
students can do to convey their
feelings to the administration.
According to SGC member Rob-
ert Bodkin, SGC may adopt a res-
olution on the subject with or
without electing to hold a refer-
endum. Bodkin also feels that if
a referendum is held, it would
have to be carefully worded in
order to let the students express
specifically what the administra-
tion should or should not do.

Provide Attractive Projects
In soliciting funds from poten-
tial contributors, the University
must present attractive ways for
the money to be spent, according
to Regent Paul Goebel, national
director of the campaign. Often
the contributor himself suggests
projects, as was the case when
Ford, General Motors and the Au-
tomobile Manufacturers Associa-
tion gave $10 million for the
Highway Institute.
"We'd like to get as much un-

designated money as possible, thus

However, it is difficult to inter-

the University complete freedom1

In a prepared statement, Wallace said the new Alabama law
"rips the veil of secrecy from the web of intrigue, bribery and
blackmail by which the Health, Education and Welfare Depart-

The new law's main provisions prohibit Alabama school
boards from signing agreement to comply with the guidelines and
appropriate state funds to reimburse schools for part of the
federal money they may lose for failure to abide by the stepped-
up requirements.

AAUP Head Offers Defense
