to establish basic policies for the

The organization also voted to
give the Writer-In-Residence pro-

Negroes must achieve power in
order to force the nation to bar-
gain with them, Stokely Carmi-
chael, chairman of the Student
Non-Violent Coordinating Com-
mittee declared yesterday.
Speaking to a near-capacity au-
dience in Hill Auditorium yester-
day, Carmichael asserted that Ne-
groes must be able to bargain from
a position of strength "because
this country does not run on mor-
ality, it runs on pure, unadulter-
ated power."
Carmichael viewed the central
issue of the "black power" move-
ment as how new social structures
can be built to replace existing
ones that fail to meet the needs
of Negroes.
He emphasized the importance
of "black consciousness," in which
Negroes achieve their goals by
themselves, without aid from
"Blacks must carry that revolu-
tionary message into the ghet-
toes," Carmichael said.
His voice rising to a high emo-
tional pitch, Carmichael asked
whites to realize the necessity of
condemning living conditions in
'ghettoes' not only dramatic inci-
dents such as the killing of four
Negro children in a Birmingham,
Ala., Sunday school in 962.
Carmichael clashed with a ques-
tioner who asked whether Negroes
in the ghetto understand the
meaning of "black power."
Replying to a suggestion that
ghetto Negroes might interpret the
slogan as a call to riot, Carmi-
chael contended that SNCC lacks
the power to "turn this country
upside down."
"If I had the power, I'd try to
get you to join in a sympathy
riot," Carmichael told the audi-
His remarks were greeted by ner-
vous laughter. The overall reaction
of the crowd appeared to be
friendly and enthusiatsic.
. But there was evidence of anx-
iety among many members of the
audience, some of whom frequent-
ly returned to the theme of vio-
lence in their questions to Car-
"I am not a pacificst," the SNCC
leader declared
"If I'm attacked, I'll defend
myself. Non-violence in the South
is tantamount to suicide, so I
can't condone it," he emphasized.
Growing impatient with the line
of questioning, Carmichael
shouted, "if this country wants to
condemn violence, it should talk
to Lyndon Baines Johnson."
This remark was greeted by the
most sustained applause of the
Viet Nam

michael's talk and the subsequent

man to fight in the Viet Nam

lie discussed "Racism in Americ
war," he declared. He called for
a basic revamping of U.S. foreign
policy "which has exploited non-
white countries around the world."
Carmichael suggested that ghet-
toes should view themselves as
colonies inside America. He af-
firmed that there is a link be-
tween SNCC's philosophy and the
revolutionary movement of the un-
derdeveloped nations of the world.
He frequently stressed that the
concept of integration is irrele-
vant to the betterment of living
conditions for Negroes.
White Supremacy
"We do not encourage whites to
work in the ghetto because it fur-
thers the idea of white supremacy
in the minds of young blacks,"
Carmichael explained.
On the subject of education, he
stressed his concern for higher
quality education, with or with-
out integration.
Carmichael attacked "systematic

lems, we try to deal with them,"t
he said.,

Carmichael said "I don't need to
become a hired killer in the army1
in order to get an education."
Black Culturet
"The need in this country is
for psychological equality. Blacks
have a culture of their own, but
they have been made ashamed oft
it by whites," Carmichael con-1
"Black power speaks to blacks in4
this country. Black power will beF
used whether whites like it or not,
because blacks have a right to useI
the terms they want to use," hel
"The only time power means l

savagery to whites is when 'black'
is put in front of it," he said.
"We intend to find out whether
the United States will allow blacks
to acquire black power," Carmi-
chael declared. He refused to con-
demn the use of violence, but he
said the causes of violence and
rioting must be analyzed.
"Stop the oppression and ex-
ploitation of blacks," Carmichael
cried. "There's a wall in this
country-why won't white people
admit that?" he asked.
Work Hardest
"Black people work hardest in
this country and are the lowest
paid," he charged.
"The central question is-does
this society provide a job for ev-
eryone? Is the country willing to
spend as much money to help Ne-
groes as it is spending on the Viet
Nam war?" Carmichael asked.
Earlier, at a Canterbury House
luncheon, Carmichael called col-

lege students "the most political-,
ly naive people in the world."
Students never think politically,
he charged. He called for question-
ing of the country's political
structure and consideration of new
coalitions and independent politi-
cal candidates.
Possible Link-up
Asked about the possibility of a:
coalition between the "New Left"
and SNCC, Carmichael foresaw a
possible link-up on racial prob-
lems if peace groups become more
aggressive and utilize political
power rather than appeals to mor-
He accused President, Johnson
of stopping civil rights momentum!
by putting a civil rights bill be-
fore Congress which he knew
would fail to pass.
He was referring to the recent
bill which failed in the Senate,
primarily because of an open hous-
ing clause which would have for-

bidden racial discrimination in the
sale of most private housing.
Describing what sympathetic
"white liberals" can do to aid
the Negro cause, Carmichael sug-
gested that they attempt to re-
verse "racist attitudes" among
other whites.
Demonstrate Sincerity
The best way whites can dem-
onstrate their sincerity is to have
"whites attend black schools as
well as blacks attend white
"Black schools are inferior be-
cause the boards which control
them don't care about black chil-
dren," he argued.
Later, Carmichael told . news-
men he was not surprised by the
reaction of the white community
to the "black power" slogan.
"White liberals should try to
view these problems through the
eyes of Negroes, instead of through
their own preconceived notions."

The final official tally in Man-

Leaders of the peace movement

Critics of the war have recent-

legal suit, Weiss was able to point
out enough irregularities in the
election to get the New York
State Supreme Court to order a
rerun of the election.
During the election, Farbstein
tried to make the war the prime
issue in his campaign against
Weiss, although Weiss tried to at-
tack Farbstein on a variety of
A Reform Democrat, Weiss ac-
cused Farbstein of being a "club-
house" politician who was out of
step with the times. Farbstein, on
the other hand, pointed to his lib-
eral voting record in Congress and
charged that Weiss was "just aft-
er my job."
Farbstein's apparent victory,
however, can not be looked on as a
clear endorsement of Johnson's
policies by the voters in this tra-
ditionally Democratic district.
The basic cleavage in the dis-
trict is not between hawks and
doves, but rather between the Jew-

the choice of the reformers in a
pre-primary contest.
In the June primary, Weiss'
cause was aided by the large turn-
out of middle class voters to cast
their ballots for Senator Robert
Kennedy's (D-NY) candidate for
a hotly contested judgeship. The
turnout for yesterday's primary,
however, was lower than Weiss
had hoped.

A spokesman for SHA said that the change, which would
affect the density of residents in housing, would force students
to live farther from campus, expanding into presently non-
student residential areas. Also, he added, the traffic and parking
problems would be aggravated by students going to campus. An-
other source noted that it would also force up rents in the im-
mediate area.

Study Experiment Which
Upset Nuclear 'Theory



A primary concept of nuclear
physics was challenged by the
startling results of a recent experi-
ment, but further intensive in-
vestigation seems about to pre-
serve this traditional theory of
About three months ago, the re-
sults of a series of experiments
involving photographs of the trails
of a very short-lived nuclear par-
ticle, the eta meson, were re-
leased. The experiments were done
by Dr. Paolo Franzini of Colum-
bia University and his wife, Dr.
Juliet-Lee Franzini using the bub-
ble chamber at the Brookhaven
National Laboratory on Long Is-
Their findings appeared to upset
the basic theory of nuclear phys-
ics, that nuclear particles are sym-
metrically structured in nature.
The Franzinis had based their
findings on about 2000 photo-
graphs of the decay of eta mesons
into three parts called pi mesons,
or pions. Two of these pions had
been assumed to always have

tical except opposite in charge.
Many groups in several coun-
tries began to experiment with the
effect and recently a very com-
prehensive experiment by a group
based in Geneva, Switzerland, was
reported at the 13th international
Conference on High Energy Phy-
sics which was held at the Univer-
sity of California at Rochester.
The experiments, which were
carried out at the European Cen-
ten for Nuclear Research, reported
that no significant evidence for
lack of symmetry was found, but
they could not explain the evi-
dence of the Franzini tests.
It was thought that since the
bubble chamber at Brookhaven
has a fixed magnetic field which
could have been uneven during the
experiment, that the higher ener-
gy levels detected might have been
erroneous. To make sure, severa]
experiments on the effect are still
being conducted in several coun-

set of tests as well. In order tc
