Teachers Will End Strike

the Woro River. Under its sandy
bed, he revealed unofficially, lay
3000 bodies. I bent down and
picked up the casing of a 30
caliber cartridge lying on the bank.
In several places the killers held
feast with their bound victims
present. After dinner, each guest
was invited to decapitate a pris-
As the killing accelerated
throughout November, bridges
were adorned with heads and
headless bodies festooned with Red
flags were floated down rivers
aboard rafts.

At one point, so many cadavers
from Kediri filled the Brantas
River that the downstream town
of Djombang lodged a formal pro-
test, complaining that plague
might break out.
Sheep to Slaughter

Communist captives appear to
have gone to slaughter like docile

escaped, perhaps to asylum in Red

Collegiate Press Service
NEW YORK-After a symbolic
protest, the nation's first strike
by a teacher's union against a
university will, in effect, be over.
Strikers at St. .John's University
plan to stage their largest picket
during the school's commencement
exercises June 12.
Union leaders predict the end
of the school term will make it
hard to continue demonstrations.
With the end of the academic year,
many of the dismissed teachers
and St. John's faculty who joined
the strike in sympathy will be
working at new jobs. Union leaders
estimate that about 100 of the
600-member faculty will be join-
ing new institutions this fall.
Additionally, the union can no
longer pay strikers, making it eco-

nomically impossible for most to
continue manning the picket lines.
Call for Justice
Members of the United Federa-
tion of College Teachers, the
American Federation of Teachers'
New York local which called the
strike, adamantly vow that until
"justice has been done," the strike
will never end. UFCT President
Dr. Israel Kugler says that oc-
casional picketers will still appear.
Union leaders dislike any sug-
gestion that the strike is no longer
a hot topic. With the dwindling
of the strike, the union sees its
image of being a strong, protective
bargaining group for college teach-
ers also dwindling. Dependence is
heavy on the success of the St.
John's strike to increase union
membership among college teach-
ers throughout the country.

Results of Strike
Union leaders credit the strike
-Generating so much attention
that it was impossible for the
academic community not to notice
and criticize the violation of aca-
demic freedom.
-Goading the American Asso-
ciation of University Professors
into speedy action. The AAUP
published a report of the dismissal
of 31 professors within two
months. Usually such reports take
18 months or longer. At its April
meeting the AAUP placed St.
John's on its censure list and
suggested other faculty members

cadres eluded capture. More sig-
nificantly, the Communists were
simply no match for the army's
The murderous momentum was
so strong that in'late December,
when the east Java commander,
Gen. Sunarjadi, ordered a halt to
the killing, he was largely ignored.
The massacres in east Java con-
tinued well into February.
With only 2 million inhabitants,
the island of Bali suffered the
highest percentage of killings in
all Indonesia. Here, at least 50,000
people slaughtered, largely for
mysterious motives.
Red Scapegoat
For many simple Balinese, the
Communists also served as a con-
venient scapegoat. The eruption
of Mount Agung, one of the is-
land's volcanos, had driven refu-
gees down from rural areas, creat-
ing economic hardship.

As elsewhere in Indonesia, prices "This is a Communist rifle and
were climbing. When news of the now it's eating Communists."
anti-Communist massacres in Java Many Victims

pulse was for imitation.
With no apparent provocation,
nationalist youths began to stone
and burn Communist houses. In
one village, the Communists de-
stroyed their flag, disbanded their
organization and protested that
they were not implicated in the
Djakarta coup. They were attacked
In December, when paratroop
commandos arrived to "restore
order," the slaughter became more
systematic. Armed with Soviet
submachine guns, groups of 25
commandos scoured villages, exe-
cuting their entire male popula-
After one such massacre, a com-
mando held up his Soviet weapon
to an American student and said:

Many of the victims were scarce-
ly Communists, but enterprising
Chinese and Javanese who had
managed to acquire enviable shops
and land. Much of their property,
I was'reliably informed, has pass-
ed into the hands of local army
officers and politicians.
Even children were not spared.
When I pointed out to a Balinese
merchant that the sons of slain
Communists would seek revenge a
generation hence, he replied: "We
thought ofthat, so we took care
of their sons, too."
News travels slowly in Indonesia.
Thus many of the outer islands are
reportedly just beginning to join
in the anti-Communst ogroms. But
Java and Bali are now mostly
peaceful, even if their calm is the
tranquility of a graveyard.

About 'U'v
(Continued from Pabe 2)
The University has not tried to
prevent any of its employes from
joining a union. They are just
not co-operating until the court
has made a decision on whether
or not the University is included
in Act 379.
The unions have tried to induce
the University to accept them as
the bargaining agents for the
University employes in question,
and then fight their court battle
on autonomy. All they want is
recognition of their collective bar-
gaining rights, whether this is
given by an autonomous Board of
Regents or the State Labor Medi-
ation Board. The University has
refused to take this action.
The process is painfully slow.

md Unions
As President Hatcher has stat-
ed, "The validity of the series of
hearings in which the University
is co-operating depends upon the
court's determination. . . . This
is an entirely friendly effort on
our part to find out what rules we
are to follow. It will save months
of time and guarantee orderly

The no-drag shaver
In 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th,



TOMORROW MORNING students will be taking an examination on the
University of Michigan campus. Our understanding is that the purpose of
this examination is to provide local Selective Service boards with an aid in
determining deferments for those students who ask to take the examina-
tion. As we understand it, the grades received by the students on this
examination will be one of the determining factors in their future draft
Those who "fail" may be asked to fight in the Vietnam war. What
do they know about this war? What do those who "pass" know about the
war in which their friends and neighbors may be asked to fight?
What do the parents, friends, teachers, employers of all these stu-
dents know about the Vietnam war? How did it start? Who is fighting
it? Why? What have been the effects of this war?
We want people to ask themselves these questions. We are there-

and 5th.
The REMINGTONo 200 Selectro Shaver is a new
model. Different from anything you've used
before. It has a dial with 5 positions that lets
you shift over all the different parts of your face.
In 1st, you get a smoother In 3rd, you get this wild
start on your neck. Gets all drifting sensation as you go

No drag.

Auditorium of the UM Chemistry Building-North

STUDENTS WHO have taken the Selective Service examination are urged
to take also the National Vietnam Examination on a voluntary basis, at
1:00 P.M. or 2:00 P.M. tomorrow in the Auditorium of the UM Natural
Science Building, North University opposite Hill Auditorium. Those who
cannot come at this time are urged to take a copy of the examination with
them. They will receive the answers by mail.
The National Vietnam Examination is short. It consists of 18 fact-
ual questions. Fully documented answers will be supplied during each
testing session. Faculty members and students will be on hand to discuss
the test quetions and related topics with the participants, in an informal
Open House. Supplementary documents and literature will be available.

line of cordless shavers.
