Seventy-Six Years of Editorial Freedom
ClevelandClean-up Gangs and More Resei


The National Guardsmen have
begun to leave Cleveland - by
Sunday they should all be gone.
4 But community resentment will
not be so quick to dissipate in
the city's Hough and Glenville
districts, nor will Mayor Locher's
administration find it easy to ap-
pease the residents with Grand
Jury investigations.
Bill Ayers, '68, who is current-
ly working for Cleveland's East
Side Community Union, told yes-
terday of efforts by Glenville
youths to assist the city in clean-
ing up the neighborhood-efforts
aimed at clearing slums which ur-!

ban renewal projects have not as
yet touched.
"About 25 gang leaders - kids
between the ages of 15 and 21--
met to organize themselves and
their fellow members into a mas-
sive clean-up unit along Lakeview
Ave.," Ayers related. By yesterday
they had cleared alleys and back-
yards on Lakeview of furniture
and other debris which had been
collecting for years. After piling
the junk along the curb they call-
ed the city's sanitation department
and requested that the refuse be
picked up before it can accumu-
late further.
"Right now they're waiting to

see what happens," said Ayers. "If
the city doesn't take care of it
pretty quickly the kids intend to
call Mayor Locher personally, tell
him of the delay, and demand that
it be collected within a given time
period-like 24 hours. After that
they'll probably move it into the
streets . .."
The Glenville youths-as those
in Hough-are now testing Cleve-
land's administration, hoping per-
haps that for once it will act in a
manner deserving of the residents'
"We-that is representatives of
the Glenville neighborhood-pre-
sented a list of eight demands to

Mayor Locher on Saturday," con-
tinued Ayers. "He said he'd read
them and then get in touch with
us after he's considered them.
We've made an appointment with
him for Tuesday."
Ayers added that the Glenville
representatives will be at the may-
or's office to keep the appoint-
ment, though no one was willing
to vouch for Locher's appearance.
For the most part the Glen-
ville demands are reasonable:
more supervised playgrounds, ex-
termination of the city's rat pop-
ulation, more traffic lights on
Lakeview and better safety patrols,
more police respect of the people,

more Negro police who understand
the people and their problems, the
establishment of a police review
board, and the resignation of Po-
lice Chief Wagner and Safety
Commissioner McCormick.
And in the aftermath of what
one Negro resident termed "viol-
ent demonstrations" in Cleveland,
Mayor Locher has ordered grand
jury investigations which Ayers
fears will bring "only conclusions
and no solutions."
One 17 year old Negro youth
has reportedly identified key peo-
ple in last week's rioting-people
who organized the violence and
gave instruction in the making of

firebombs. Many feel that outside
agitation was partially responsi-
ble for the racial disturbances.
Conclusions such as these, how-
ever, can only add more resent-
ment. One Negro spoke indignant-
ly in a telephone interview, say-
ing that Cleveland Negroes were
smart enough to organize the riots
themselves: "We don't need out-
side 'help of any kind. . . no one
has to teach us how to make fire-
bombs or how to distract police
and firemen while we burn the
stores of the whites that are ex-
ploiting us."
No one, Ayers observed, has to

tell these people that they're liv-
ing in poverty and that they're not
getting a decent education. He
felt that the Negro youth cur-
rently acting as informant actual-
ly has no real information to give.
"He's only telling the Grand Jury
what they want to hear and try-
ing to keep himself out of trou-
Negro leadership in Cleveland
is admittedly poor--there were no
radical or dynamic leaders be-
fore the riots and none seems to
have come with the violence.
Ayers commented that neither
he nor any of his fellow workers

at the Community Union want to
provide the Negro leadership and
it seems doubtful that the resi-
dents would accept them even if
they did. Said one Negro, "It's an
insult to the intelligence of the
residents of Hough and Glenville
to think that we're notcap able of
formulating long-range plans our-
Said Ayers, "We're only here to
bring the people together and of-
fer them alternatives when we

tion to act upon these plans and

Senate Okays
Foreign AidK
Bill with Cuts
Legislators Decide
Against Measure
Asking Deeper Slash
cut $100 million from President
Johnson's $892-million military
foreign aid program last night and
then passed it.
Before wrapping up its work on
the measure, the Senate beat back
efforts to make a deeper slash in
the program-$250 million - and
'~to require President Johnson to
dip into the defense appropriation
in order to pay for the military-
aid spending.
Sen. J. W. Fubright (D-Ark ,:.
chairman of the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee and thus
nominal manager of the bill on
the floor, voted against the mill-
tary-aid authorization on the final
The measure was acted on after
a day of debate that began with
Democratic Leader Mike Mans-
field of Montana stressing the
senators' concern with the size
and cost of the U.S. troop force
in Europe and urging a cutback.
Underscoring the obvious Sen-
ate mood to cut back on aid spend-
ing were the votes cast for the
reduction by two of the commit-
tee chairmen most involved in the
'program - Fulbright of Foreign
Relations and Sen. Richard B.
Russell (D-Ga) of Armed Services.
The action on the military-aid
program came a day after the
Senate had completed action on
the economic-aid program, cutting
it a total of $409 million below
President Johnson's $2.47-billion
The 82-7 roll-call vote sent the
military aid authorization for thel
fiscal year that began July 1 to a
Senate-House conference along
with the economic aid measure.
The House had lumped the two
programs together but the Senate,
while separating them as the ad-
ministration asked, came out with
an aid program far different from
what the House voted or President
Johnson asked.
Judging from past perform-
ances, the final result will be a
compromise softening some of the
buffeting given the program by
the Senate.
Those who voted against the
military aid on final passage were
Sens. Fulbright, Quentin N. Bur-
dick (D-ND), Allen J. Ellender
(D-La), Ernest Gruening (D-Alas-
ka), Vance Hartke (D-Ind,
George McGovern (D-SD) and
Wayne Morse (D-Ore).
After the move by McGovern to
cut the military aid by $250 mil-
lion was rejected, 71 to 23, Morse
withdrew his amendment to get
a $200 million slash, saying he was
throwing his support .behind the
effort of Sen. Frank Church (D-
Idaho) for a $100 million reduc-
Church's cut won 55 to 37 -
supported by 43 Democrats and 12
Republicans, while it was opposed
by 20 Democrats and 17 Republi-

From 1964 to 1965, he said, the number of motorcycle and
motor scooter registrations climbed by 66 per cent and the acci-

Kelley scheduled a series of meetings with law enforcement
officers, motorcycle manufacturers, dealers and renters and
representatives of motorcycle organizations to receive suggestions.
To meet the problem. he recommended a combination of
voluntary action by motorcycle riders. tightened law enforcement,
new laws and cooperation by the motorcycle industry to assist in
safe use of the cycles.
Kelley said, "The vast majority of motorcycle, motor scooter

DRAFT BOARDS shouldn't give mathematics teachers pref-
erence over art teachers when granting deferments, the State
Board of Education said yesterday, according to the Associated
The board adopted a resolution urging local boards to treat
all teachers equally when classifying them for the draft, regardless
of the subject they teach.
"One cannot justify in terms of the educational value a
distinction among different categories of teachers and their
impact upon the student," the resolution said.
Col. Arthur Holmes, State Selective Service Director, told
local draft boards last month to review occupational deferments,
including those for teachers. He said boards should give special
consideration to granting deferments to teachers of mathematics
and science and other skills considered critical.
The State Board's resolution also urged draft boards to keep
in mind the importance of teachers to the national interest and
security, and "the difficulty of recruiting and retraining teachers"
if many are drafted along lines of the new policy.

To Run for :
Regent Post
Incumbent Expected
To Soon Announce
Bid for Re-Election
Regent Irene Murphy will run
for re-election to the Board of
Regents, informed sources dls-
losed yesterday.
She is not expected to make a
public statement to this effect
until Aug 1, when she will outline
her plans for the future.
Regent Murphy's term expires
this year, and there was some
doubt as to whether or not she
would seek re-election to the
ight-year term.
Brablec's Term
Regent Carl Brablec's term also
expires this year, however, he is
not going to seek re-election to
the post because of his pressing
duties as superintendent of Rose-
ville schools.
This means that there is still
one vacancy on the Board. At
the moment it appears that John
Collings, a Democrat will fill it.
Collins is president of Wayne.

Democratic State chairman In
Other Possibilities
The remaining possibilities in
the Democratic camp are Norman
Krandall, an executive with the
Ford Motor Company; Theodore
Sachs, the lawyer primarily re-
sponsible for the court ruling re-
directing the apportionment to a
one-man, one-vote basis, and
Robert Nederlander, executive of
the Nederlander Co. which owns
several theatres, including the
Fisher Theatre.
The Republican camp has ex-
perlenced no "Regent rumblings"
yet, according to Charles orle-
beke, special advisor to the gov-
ernor. He said that "things are
fluid at the moment" and that
there has not been much activity.
Lawrence Lindemer and Ink
White have been mentioned as
possible Republican candidates be-
cause they had been considered for
the appointment to the vacancy
left by Eugene Power's resignation,
but there was no official con-
firmation of this.
'Looking It Over'
Krandall, while not committing
himself said that he would most
likely seek the nomination. He in-
diected that he would like to look
"over the field" and assess his
chances before making a final
Sachs said that he has not yet
made a final decision to seek the
nomination and will decide some-
time next week.
Nederlander said that h is
fairly sure that he will seek the
nomination but has not made a
final decision. He said that he has
been approached by many people
and indicated that a committee
has been formed to get him to run.

'Project Outreach


Integrative Teaching Approach

A psychology department sym-
posium to be presented today in
Rackham Amphitheater, between
7.30 p.m. and 9:30, will deal with
the new approach to teaching in-
troductory psychology put into
operation last fall.
"Project Outreach," an idea de-
veloped in the summer of 1965 by
graduate students in a pre-teach-
ing seminar on "Dynamics of
Group Process," attempts to offer
beginning psychology students a
chance to apply "textbook knowl-
edge" in field situations.
Eliminate Lecture
Beginning last fall, students en-
rolled in psychology 101 and its
Honors counterpart - 191 - were
relieved of sitting in on the mam-
moth lectures in Hill Aud, that
were a traditional butt of com-
plaints levied against the Univer-
sity's "mass and depersonalized
educational system."
In place of the fourth weekly
hour of class previously occupied

by the lecture, about one-third'
of the students were given the
chance to participate in field proj-
ects such as work with the men-
tally disturbed at Northville Hos-
pital, with delinquent boys at a
training school near Whitmore
Lake, with a foster children's re-
ceiving home, the Children's In-
stitute, at the newly-set-up experi-
mental nursery school, the Chil-
dren's Community, with tutorial
groups and in work with lawyers
and in courtroom observations.
Teaching fellows, traditionally
given considerable autonomy by
the psychology department, or-
ganize recitation sections in a
variety of ways, with individually
prepared reading lists, according to
their own and their students' pref-
Several have broken down large
sections into several groups of a
size more ameanable to in-depth
discussion. Each would meet fewer
times a week for longer periods
of time than the usual one hour.
Two teaching fellows pooled the
students in their recitation sec-
tions and rotated as lecturers to
the combined group for the first
several weeks. The students were
then allowed to opt for one of
three different programs for the
remainder of the semester Acon-
tinuation of the lectures was of-
fered. Or, students could choose
to attend seminar-style classes or
pursue independent reading and
study, having weekly discussions
with the instructor-options rare-
ly offered to undergraduates, espe-
cially at an introductory course

a thrice-weekly basis, and apply
and test out the concepts in their,
research projects.
Some of the research projects1
have worked out; some haven't.
But, the idea itself-involving be-
ginning psychology students in
field work-definitely has proven
viable in the view of those involved
in the operation of "Project Out-
Favorable Reaction
Response from institutes where
Outreach students have worked
has been extremely complemen-
tary; the undergraduate research-
ers have been called "dependable,
competent, spontaneous."'Students
themselves have also been pleased
with the field work they were in-
volved in. Many who participated
in the project last fall returned
to work at various agencies-espe-
cially at Northville and the Chil-
dren's Institute-the following se-
mester, on a non-credit basis.
Some field projects slow in get-
ting students involved because of

transportation problems or be-
cause, as in the case of the Psy-
chology and the Law project, not
being on the same yearly time-,
table as the University's academic
year, are being revamped or drop-
ped after further study of the
project this summer, with new
projects being devised.
According to Outreach's orga-
nizers, the project is also being
"looked at from a new angle" dur-
ing the summer, with some em-
phasis on the ethical considera-
tions concerning students involv-
ed in the field work.
According to one Outreach
teaching fellow, an example of
the types of issues the prpject's
organizers might consider is that
of student, becoming more than
the "participant observer" the psy-
chology department asks him to
be, perhaps participating in pick-
eting organized by researchers he
works with, attempting to use a
