Q --

(Continued -from Page 1)

One Ann Arbor resident, Jo-
seph Harrison, said he was told
to leave, though he was not charg-'
ed with any disturbance. Harri-
son claimed he could thing of no
reason why he should have been
asked to leave. "I could only guess
at one. I can imagine no other
reason than the fact that I am a
Negro, if this is any reason."
The Board, meeting again in
executive session, said it would
continue to take "such firm and
positive action" as is necessary to
promote the interests of the ma-
jority of.its members and guests.
The special facilities commit-
tee, which made use of a random
survey of students, faculty and
alumni, will present its recom-
mendations to the board at its
meeting next month.
Student Action..
Early last year several Univer-
sity students became concerned
with the plight of Southern Ne-
groes who were losing their jobs
and endangering their lives by in-
sisting upon their right to reg-
ister to vote.

ple in Freedom Village as the city
of tents came to be called.
University students David Gil-
trow, '61; Andrew Hawley, Grad;
Kenneth McEldowney, '62, and
Nancy Press, '64, traveled to Ten-
nessee in February with food and
clothing collected for families in
Fayette and Haywood by Voice
party. Giltrow and Hawley were
arrested, ostensibly for having run
through a stop sign and were told
to leave the county, being permit-
ted to deliver their supplies only
under close police surveillance.
More recently the focus of civil
rights action in the South has been
Mississippi, where the Student
Non-Violent Coordinating Com-
mittee has been working to edu-
cate Negroes so that they will
be able to pass the voter registra-
tion test. Daily Editor John Rob-
erts, '61, and Editorial Director
Faith Weinstein, '61, visited Mis-
sissippi in October and reported
that it was in a state of siege.
"Direct action-sit-ins, protest
marches, picketing - has been
methodically crushed," they wrote
afterwards. "The pattern was
most dramatically demonstrated
in the Freedom Rides last sum-
mer, when more than 300 persons

October 11, SGC sent a letter to
Attorney General Robert Kennedy
mentioning the first incident in-
volving Hayden and Potter and
urging the federal government
"take immediate action within its
power to restore law and order in
At its Oct. 25 meeting, the Coun-
cil sent a letter to Kennedy "not-
ing the recent evidence of violence
and lawlessness in Mississippi in
connection with Negro civil rights
activities and urging him to pub-
licly declare under what conditions
the federal government will in-
tervene in Mississippi and what
form such intervention will take."
The letter also urged the at-
torney general to implement ac-
tively through investigation and
prosecution all existing federal
civil rights legislation and es-
pecially to implement those laws
which authorize hi mto file suit
in federal court against all those
who hinder Negroes when they
register to vote.
In a letter to Gov. Ross Barnett
of Mississippi, the Council asked
for guarantee of protection to
everyone in the state, upholding
of the rights of citizens of all
races to assemble in non-violent
protest and insurance that 18 stu-
dents up for trial in Pike County,
Miss. would receive fair and just
Last spring SGC passed a motion
condemning the movie "Operation
Abolition." The film was produced
by the House Committee on Un-
american Activities and portrays
the demonstrations by California

tee held hearings in May, 1960.

strong stand on the whole topic

troversy over "Operation Aboli-
The Congress condemned the
film and called for abolition of the
Committee after extensive debate
by factions which believed the
HUAC should be modified or main-
tained as is.
After minimal debate, the Con-
gress adopted a basic policy dec-
laration on the tradition of "in
loco parentis." The statement,
written by Hayden, condemned the
practice and called for an exami-
nation of "the ways in which 'in
loco parentis,' as a theory, deter-
mined the attitudes of administra-
tions toward students and the way
in which it conditions the response
of the individual student in as-
serting his own social and aca-
demic freedoms."
SGC condemned nonacademic
evaluations in the chemistry de-
partment and in the mens and
womens residence halls. Council
members thought them inappro-
priate and a violation of student

The Council moved very slowly
towards decisive action on fra-
ternity bias this year. Waiting
more than a year for the campus
fraternities and sororities to file
required statements on their mem-

ally put down a Jan. 17 deadline
for their submission. Penalties
were not specified clearly nor was

This fall the campus saw the
development of a strong move-
ment dedicated to world peace
and the cessation of nuclear test-

Unable to grant an across-the-

to make up losses suffered in

Prof. Otto Graf, director of the
