Anti-HUAC Leader Urges Protest of Hearings

To Grow Steadily
Use of New Troops To Defend
Aircraft Perimeter Called Realistic
WASHINGTON 03) - There will be a steady increase in the!
number of American troops, including combat forces, sent to Viet
Nam, authoritative sources said yesterday.
The additional troops may amount to a 50 per cent increase over
the approximately 50,000 now in Viet Nam, it was learned.
Officials said that if a decision is made for the American troops
to take a more active combat role, the manpower will be in position
to carry out such orders.
For the present, it is planned that additional forces will be used
to extend the defensive perimeters around areas from which U.S.

Frank Wilkinson, executive director and field representative
of the National Committee to Abolish the House Un-American
Activities Committee, last night urged that students hold dem-
onstrations in protest of upcoming HUAC hearings in Chicago.
Wilkinson spoke in the Unitarian Church under the auspices
of the Friends of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee,
the Social Action Committee of the Unitarian Church and the
American Civil Liberties Union.
In an earlier interview, he said that the hearings in Chicago
were a preparation for a full-scale investigation of integrationists'
activities in the South.
He pointed out that Rep. Prentiss Walker (R-Miss) has
introduced a bill to the House which, if passed, would finance
a HUAC investigation of the integration activities of the Southern
Christian Leadership Conference, the Southern Christian Educa-
tion Fund, SNCC, the Conference of Federated Organizations and
the Congress of Racial Equality.

gating the integration activities, Wilkinson said.
The subcommittee consists of ardent segregationists who
led the fight against the 1964 Civil Right Bill, Wilkinson said.
He added that the purpose of the HUAC investigation was to
weaken the civil rights movement. "Their next move will be an all
out attack on the civil rights movement under an alleged investi-
gation of the Ku Klux Klan."
In Chicago, civil rights leaders are urging students and other
interested members of the community to demonstrate against the
coming HUAC hearings. The committee to abolish HUAC is also
setting up other protest demonstrations all over the country. Wilk-
inson said.
If the hearings are not cancelled, students and civil rights
leaders in Chicago plan to hold a massive picket in front of the
Federal Bldg. where the hearings are to be held.
Wilkinson said the leaders are hoping for a turnout of thou-
sands of demonstrators.
He charged that HUAC gains its power by putting the "red"
label on persons working for integration and other areas of social
concern.
"Until two years ago, a vote against anything HUAC favored
was political suicide," Wilkinson pointed out. "Now the public's
attitude has changed." Every congressman who voted against
HUAC was reelected by an overwhelming majority, while three of
the nine members on HUAC were defeated, he said.
The committee to abolish HUAC is currently working for more
widespread support. Already, Wilkinson said, the Democratic party
has 70 representatives on record as opposed to HUAC. Ten are from
Michigan.
"We are working to build congressional district committees to
carry on educational programs designed to enlist support for the
abolshment of HUAC by putting pressure on the House," he said.

OSU Crowd
By MICHAEL BADAMO
Marxist speaker Herbert Ap-
theker made a previously an-
nounced appearance at Ohio
State University yesterday, but
did not speak because of an alleg-
ed threat to his life.
About 2000 OSU students mass-
ed on that university's oval in the
center of campus, where Aptheker
was scheduled to speak. A down-
pour forced them to retire to
OSU's University Hall where they
waited impatiently for Aptheker
to appear.
OSU rules prohibit speeches on
campus inimical to "the best in-
terests of the university." The
administration had predicted that
Aptheker and his sponsors would
be sanctioned if he spoke on cam-
pus yesterday. OSU could have de-
tained him by using both state
and university police.
Arrives
At 4:20 p.m. Aptheker arrived
at the hall, escorted by OSU's
Free Speech Front leaders Jeffrey
Schwartz and Dennis Knepley,
and members of FSF's coordinat-
ing committee. Upon the group's
arrival at the hall it immediately
retired backstage.
Sanford Weinberg, an instruc-
tor of romance languages at OSU,
spoke to the packed hall and told
the crowd of Aptheker's qualifica-
tions for speaking on a university
campus.
While Weinberg was speaking
OSU Vice-President John Corbally
went backstage amid numerous
plainclothes FBI agents, Ohio
State Police, Columbus City Po-
lice, and OSU campus security
police and conferred privately
with Schwartz.
Immediately after, Schwartz
emerged from behind the curtain
and interrupted Weinberg. He
said that a threat had been made
on Aptheker's life but that Apthe-
ker would make an appearance
and not speak.

in a position paper which wasj
sent to the Regents this week.
The Regents had no comments
on the position paper in their
monthly meeting yesterday.
Originally the University had
intended to make its two year
senior college at Flint into a
permanent four year institution.
The Flint branch has already ad-
mitted a freshman class, and
money had been pledged for the
expansion of the branch by the
Charles Stewart Mott foundation.
Requested
The opinion of the State Board
of Education on the Flint ques-
tion was requested by the Michi-
gan Senate Appropriations Com-
mittee after the diametrically op-
posed viewpoints of Gov. George
Romney and University President
Harlan Hatcher captured banner
headlines across the state this
spring.
Romney did not include money
for the branch expansion in his
budget while President Hatcher
insisted that in spite of Romney
the University would enter a
freshman class at Flint next fall.
Sen. Garland Lane (D-Flint),
chairman of the Senate Appro-
priations Committee, said at the
time of the board's decision he
"will not favor an autonomous
four year school as long as the
city of Flint remains happy with
the University."

Heyns explained that most pro-

special opportunities offered by
the other institutions. He said that
a large number were on this

The Regents also inquired about

Heyns explained that promo-

Landscape Section
Transferred from
Architecture College
By BARBARA SEYFRIED
New directions in the natural
resources school appeared to be
taking shape yesterday as the
Regents approved the transfer of
the landscape architecture depart-
ment to that school from' the
architecture college.
Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Roger W. Heyns, in rec-
ommending the transfer, noted the
increasing emphasis in the Uni-
versity on urban and regional de-
velopment and planning.
The transfer seems to indicate
that this new total planning con-
cept will be given increasing at-
tention as academic involvement
in area developmental theory and
planning increases throughout the
country and as American cities
become larger, more diffuse and
more complex-modeled after the
East Coast Megalopolis.
Committee
A University-wide committee in-
cludingrepresentatives from the
literary college, the public health
school, the natural resources
school and the architecture col-
lege is working to develop pro-
grams in planning here, Dean
Stephen Spurr of the natural re-
sources school and the graduate
school said yesterday.
Apparently the transfer of land-
scape architecture will strengthen
the involvement of the natural re-
sources school in such planning
programs.
Prof. Walter Chambers, head of
the landscape architecture depart-
ment, explained that the trend
in landscape architecture started
over 100 years ago.
Chambers said that the depart-
ment would not sever ties with
the architecture. college and a
planning department which is an-
ticipated there. The interrelation-
ship of the fields necessitates a
constant collaboration of the
architecture school and the na-
tural resource school, he said.
Brings Concepts
According to Dean Stephen
Spurr of the natural resources
school, this change would bring
the concepts of design into the
natural resource school. These can
be combined with the knowledge
and skills of the, resource school
in dealing with effective planning
and utilization of natural re-
sources, he said.
Spurr predicted that the trans-

But the Buckeyes had Steve Arlin, and he pitched 16 innings and
set a Big Ten strikeout record as he beat Michigan 4-3 in the longest
