report

released
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
Vice President for Academic Affairs Allen Smith yester-
day released the controversial report of the Intramural Ad-
visory Board which was drafted at a closed session of the
committee on Monday.
The report calls for the funding of two multi-million
dollar IM buildings through an increase in student fees of
"up to $15 per term."
Under the proposal, however, the fee increase would be
"deferred until cormpletion of the buildings" which would be
scheduled to "coincide with the demolition of Barbour/Water-'
man Gymnasium.",

Mitchell
Ie

protest,
WASHINGTON () - Atty.
Gen. John N. Mitchell has or-
dered the creation of a task
force system to gather intelli-
gence and prepare for pros-
ecution of the central figures
in campus rebellions.
The' avenue for prosecution will
be a year-old civil rights law.
Funds to finance the operation
are part of a supplemental ap-
propriations bill the Senate takes
up Monday.
The Appropriations Committee
advised the Senate today that
Mitchell had ordered development
of "a strong program looking to- r
ward the vigorous prosecution of
dissidents on college campuses
whose actions interfere with a
federally conducted or funded
program, or with the civil rights
of nondissident students or facul-
ty members."
Asst. Atty. Gen. Jerris Leonard
described the plan on May 13
when testifying before a Senate
Appropriations subcommittee.
The Appropriations Committee,
in recommending the new posi-
tions, said it expected the civil Mitct
rights law authority "will be util- - - -
ized to the fullest extent against SUGGEST
campus revolts.
The testimony and the commit-
tee's recommendations were made T
public as both Senate and House
[ committees prepared to look into
the troubles afflicting college
campuses.

Thursday. "The new administra-
tion assumed that Mr. Larcom
could effectively carry out their
policies. In his present press re-
lease, Mr. Larcom has shown his
true colors."
In Larcom's statement Thurs-
day, he said the behavior of HRC
Director David Cowley "in this
case has not been functional in
terms of clarifying the facts and
taking effective and appropriat
action." Larcom criticized Cowley
for making his charges against the
police in the press, for not goin
through the proper channels and
for publicizing the incident before
viewing all the evidence.
The city administrator also crit-
icized Chauncey for his "totally
unacceptable, inappropriate" be-
havior at the Star Bar which he
was testing for discrimination
when he was arrested.
Rowry said Larcom "leaves the
clear implication that Mr. Chaun-
cey's behavior in carrying out his
assignment for the HRC was im-
proper." "This, in spite of the fac
that the HRC director, assistant
director, and three commission
members, including Mr. Lloyd Wil-
liams, Mrs. Mildred Officer and
Mrs. Ruth Hobbs heard all of the
evidence and determined that Mr
Chauncey's behavior was beyond
reproach."
"The HRC has acted properly
both in investigating this case and
in taking the matter to the press,
Rowry maintained. "All cases in-
volving police mistreatment should
be taken to the press until a satis-
factory way of resolving police
complaints has been found."
Rowry not only urged HRC to
make a formal complaint to the

Katz says, but nursery rhymes.-
Techniques at the Waldorf
schools have been developed over i
50 years and are not just "an ac-'
cumulation of tricks or partial
procedures." One of the most im-
por tant techniques is theuse of
art in education.
"Art is not an auxiliary subject,"
saxys Katz. "Learning is found to
be most successful if an element of
art permeates all subjects." In-
stead of being taught to write let-
ters immediately, children learn
their letters from painting pic-
tures. Mountains lead to "m's"
and snakes lead to "s's."
Movement is another technique
used by Waldorf instructors.
"Children can learn more in their
younger years if one appeals to
their sense of movement," says
Katz. Children can understand'
math if they say their multiplica-
tion tables punctuated by hand
movements.
Waldorf instructors attempt to
teach in such a way that what a
student learns remains flexible
throughout his life. One must not
teach a'child one thing and then
