This drew fire not only from
the University administration but
from the state Senate which urged
that punitive action be taken
against the participating faculty
members because of the poor ex-
ample they were setting for stu-
dents. Gov. George Romney also
labeled the action "irresponsible."
Changes Plan
Because of the increasing
amount of publicity the proposed
work moratorium was receiving,
the committee changed its plans,
deciding to hold a "teach-in".
They felt the original aims of the
moratorium were being observed.
The administration backed the
change.
Dean William Haber of the
literary college allowed the com-
mittee to use auditoria A, B, C,
and D as well as several rooms in
Mason Hall. John Bingley, direc-
tor of student activities and or-.
ganizations, granted women stu-
dents at the University permission
to stay out past closing.
The "teach-in" took place March
24 and lasted the entire night. An
estimated three thousand students
attended. The evening started out
with speeches by three experts on
foreign policy and Viet Nam drawn
from the academic community. At
midnight six seminar groups at-
tempted to assess the problem in
Viet Nam. At 3 p.m. a second
group of six seminars attempted
to determine what should be done
about the situation in Viet Nam.
The University "teach-in"
sparked a series of teach-ins held
on over 50 different university
campuses.
Second 'Teach-In'
A second "teach-in" was held at
the University at the time of the
national "teach-in" on May 15.
Members of the academic com-

munity had previously arranged
for McGeorge Bundy, special as-
sistant for national security af-
fairs, to debate foreign policy with
Prof. George Kahin of Cornell
University.
The "teach-in" at the Univer-
sity started with an introductory
speech by Prof. Andrew Collver of
the sociology department. Follow-
ing the speech at 1 a.m., a nation-
al hook-up used by a number of
universities relayed the national
debate to the University audience.
There was a summation by three
professors following the broad-
cast.
All did not go well at the na-
tional broadcast, however. Bundy
was called away unexpectedly to
go to the Dominican Republic and

was unable to appear.
Following considerable contro-
versy, a second debate was broad-
cast over CBS June 22. This time
Bundy made an appearance.
Following the national "teach-
in", the faculty group reorganised
in ,an attempt to open debate on
all foreign policy, not merely pol-
icy in Viet Nam, although this
still is a major focus of interest.
New Committee
At this time the Inter-university
Committee for the Debate of For-
eign Policy was formed.
Further action was taken by the
committee at a conference of rep-
resentatives of over. 50 universities
on the Inter-university Commit-
tee. At this meeting the commit-
tee endorsed a city-wide referen-
dum for Ann Arbor on the Viet
Nam war to be held in the fall.
A second study is being conduct-
ed by summer institute students
at the Survey Research Center.
They are interviewing Ann Arbor
residents in study of attitudes to-
ward U.S. foreign policy and in-
volvement in Viet Nam.
This project is part of a course
given by the center designed to
give students practical experience
in survey research techniques.
Results of the survey will not be
released until it has been evaluat-
