LAFAYETTE - After consultation with high university
officials the Purdue Union announced early this morning that
it will allow approximately 350 students to continue their six-
tdday sleep-in at the Union.
On Monday night 229 students were arrested for trespass-
ing in the Union, and the administration yesterday had
decided that the Union would be closed at 1 a.m.
However, the director of the Union, J. 'C. Smalley, an-
nounced that following consultdions with the president ofver
the university, Frederick Hovde, and the student body presi-

The University might become
a "white anglo-saxon middle-
class cookie cutter unless it stops
acquiescing to the status quo,"
says author Louis Lomax.
Lomax, who wrote Negro Re-
volt spoke Monday at a public
session of the Afro-American re-
treat being held here this week.
The idea for the conference
emerged from meetings between
members of the Black Student
Union and President Robben

Lomax said the University has
alowed itself to become the
power arm of the establishment
and must take the blame for
the perpetuation of inferiority
The University should have
gone to the forefront to get rid
of these myths, Lomax added,
but the questions were never
raised in the classrooms and the
University did not take a role
of leadership, Lomax claimed.
Instead it resorted to becoming
a "cookie cutter," he said.
Lomax asked, why professors

Contacted after the meeting,
Smith said he intends to act on
SACUA's recommendation, but
suggested that the question of
credit foi ROTC is pertinent only:
to the literary college.
"None of the professional schools
currently give credit for ROTC,"
said Smith. "The engineering
school, which supplies a large
ROTC, does not give any academic
credit for ROTC courses. However,
some courses in the engineering
school do count towards fulfill-
ment of ROTC requirements."
In other action. SACUA dis-
cussed a letter from Smith rec-
ommending that the University
institute a policy requiring all
departments to givernon-tenured
professors adequate notice of dis-
missal or denial of tenure.
"Presently," said Smith, "each
department has a different and
often unclear policy on how long
in advance professors are told
whether they will receive tenure
or be reappointed. Smith said a
clear University policy is neces-
sary to give professors who believe
they have been treated unfairly
some basis for appeal.
"The recommendation made by
my office," Smith said, "is very
similiar to the policy outlined by
