U.S. Judge Sets OSA


Women 's Apartment


Trial for


Charges 17 with Misdemeanors
In Killings of Civil Rights Workers
By The Associated Press
MERIDIAN, Miss.-A federal judge ruled yesterday that 17
white men must stand trial on misdemeanor charges in connection
with the slaying of three civil rights workers last summer. Mean-
while, a Negro became the first casualty of Alabama's civil rights
Judge Harold Cox set no date for the trial in rejecting defense
motions to dismiss the misdemeanor indictment-as he did a more
serious felony indictment Thursday.
In Washington, a Justice Department spokesman said the way
has been paved for a full-fledged trial of the 17 men-a trial in
which all of the evidence that
could have been used in a felony
trial can be brought to light.
The 17 were arrested last month
following a massive Federal Bu-
reau of Investigation investiga-
tion into the murders of Michael
Schwerner and Andrew Goodman,
white New oYrkers, and James
Chaney, Meridian Negro.

The Office of Student Affairs yesterday warned apartment-
hunting women who will be juniors next fall that they can't
sign a contract for a space in an uncompleted building.
The office fears many of promised spaces will not be avail-
able for occupancy by fall, unleashing a flood of students seek-
ing temporary quarters.
The OSA warning yesterday does not, however, apply to
women over 21, senior women or to male students. Their lease
arrangements are not endorsed by the University.
Reacts Quickly
Reacting swiftly to the student administration warning, a
local partner of the 18-story apartment structure now under
construction on South University Avenue, said his firm has
cancelled all agreements with sophomore women. Their deposit
money will be refunded,.Robert E, Weaver said:
He estimated that only 10 contracts covering four apart-
ments are involved.
There was no official word from city realtors who are man-
aging six other projects yet to be completed, but several indicated
their intention not to contract junior women in these structures.
The OSA warning, clarifying its policies for protecting
junior women in their first year in apartments next fall, came
from Elizabeth Leslie, coordinator of associated and off-campus
To Be Enforced
She said that the OSA intends to enforce the regulation
requiring junior women to reside in University-endorsed hous-

ing. This will be done by requiring a copy of the University ren-
tal agreement before granting the apartment permission.
The regulation was set forth along general lines by Vice-
President for Student Affairs Richard Cutler in early February.
He announced that junior permissions would be contingent
upon parental permission and the use of a University rental
At that time, however, he only advised students not to en-
ter agreements for dwellings which are not completed.
Mrs. Leslie was more specific yesterday. *
"This office is well aware of the fact that those entrepreneurs
who are managing buildings still in the process of construction
are making private agreements with sophomore women on the
basrs that their property will be completed at the time school
opens next fall," she declared.
Not Illegal
"We realize that this is not an illegal or unethical way of
handling the rental of apartments from the realtor's point of
view. On the other hand, the jurisdiction of the OSA is over
the students and not over the realtors. We feel an obligation to
students," she added.
She did not identify specific firms or buildings, but the de-
velopment of the 18-story high-rise has been a source of major
concern to the OSA for several months.
Administrators fear that it will not be ready for occupancy
by next August 15, forcing the 800 student occupants into tem-
porary quarters. They have been critical also of the development's
See OSA, Page 2

If you are a sophomore woman who will have 54 or more
academic credits next fall and be under 21 years of age, here's
how you go about getting an apartment permission:
1) If you're in a sorority, forget about it. You are com-
mitted to living there next year.
2) If you're in a residence hall, there are three forms which
must be obtained, filled out and returned to the residence di-
rector by March 12.
The first is a parental permission form which the direc-
tors will have on March 5. This must be signed by your parents
specifying that you have permission to live in an apartment
off -campus.
The second is a cancellation form on which you officially
withdraw from the residence hall system for next year. This
should also be returned by March 12.
The third is the University rental agreement which must
be signed by the realtor. The forms will be available through
the realtors starting March 6. They should be submitted to the
director with the other two forms by March 12. If you can't
get them signed that quickly, then the residence halls will
hold a place for you through June 1 at which time you would
re-apply to the residence halls.
3) Remember that the University lease is only valid for
prospective junior women when it covers an apartment which
is already constructed. Senior women, women over 21, and all-'
males do not have to sign or submit a University rental agree-

Two Speakers
Debate over
Racial Policy
South Africa's apartheid policy
--is it good or bad?
Two professors expressed differ-
ing opinions on this question at
the opening session of the "Con-
ference on South Africa" last
night. TheUconference is spon-
sored by the United States Na-
tional Student Association.
Prof. Thomas Molnar of Brook-
lyn University opened the session
by supporting the policy "supple-
mented-and I emphasize supple-
mented - by a 'Bantustand'
This policy would provide for
eventual independence for Afri-
can tribes. According to Molnar,
this independence is envisaged as
a commonwealth of small African
nations politically independent
but bound together by economic
Taking another position was;
Prof. Hugh M. Smythe, also of{
Brooklyn University. S m y t h e
maintained that the only solu-
tion to what he termed the "po-
tentially explosive situation" in
South Africa is discussion of the
problems which have resulted in
and from the apartheid policy by
all the parties involved.
"South Africa has had two kinds
of history," he explained, a white
history and a black history. The
apartheid policy is not a result
of the British, he said. Molnar
disagreed, claiming "it was a
problem the present government
inherited from the British."
The causes for the apartheid
policy Smythe cited included in-
cidents such as the Boer War,
which left a heritage of bitter-
ness among the Africaners, use
of. English as the primary lan-
guage and Africaner as a second-
ary language, which also left bit-
terness among the Africaners. Iso-
lationism on the part of the Afri-
caners was also a contributing
factor, he said.
Religion also contributes highly
to the apartheid policy in South
Africa, Smythe continued. "The
Dutch Reformed Church, which
supports a very rigid form of Cal-
vinism, also supports an apartheid
policy," he said. The race ques-
tion in South Africa is always
viewed in political, not moral
terms, he added.
Molnar explained the apartheid
policy by describing many differ-!
ences between the situation of the1
Negroes in Africa and that of the
black man in South Africa.
"Here," Molnar maintained,
'the Negro is in the minority and
could never hope to be in the ma-
jority. Consequently the white
man acquires, the psychology of
the dominant rae." Tn Afrir the

Prof. Louis Weinberg of the en-

After saying that the statements
made by Felheim and Loescher
mostly apply to the humanities,
Weinberg modified this by adding
"manipulative skills are just as
much a part of the humanities
as they are a part of science and
mathematics. Also, the apprecia-
tion of mathematics or science
can be as much an aesthetic ex-
perience as can the appreciation
of a fine novel or poem." In fact,
mathematics is essentially one, of
of the humanities, he said.
Name Council
Endorsements of the Student
Government Council candidates
were released yesterday by the
major student organizations.
Voice political party has given
its support to the candidates of
GROUP political party: Robert
Golden, '67A&D, for president, El-
len Buchalter, '67, for executive
vice-president, and Paula Camer-
on, '67, Mickey Eisenberg, '67, Rus-
sel Linden, '68, Steve Schwartz,
'68, Steve Daniels, '67, Donald
Reznick, '68, and Myles Stern, '66.
The Young Democrats have en-
dorsed the GROUP candidates but
have also given their endorsement
to David Sloan, '67.
Panhellenic Association has giv-
en its support to Gary Cunning-
ham, '65, for president and Harlan
Bloomer, '66A&D, for executive
vice-president. It has also endors-
ed Miss Cameron, Linden, George
Field, '67, Neil Hollenshead, '67,
Christopher Mansfield, '66, 'and
John Winder, '65.
Interfraternity Council has en-
dorsed Cunningham for president
and Bloomer for executive vice-
president. It also endorses Winder,
Mansfield, Field, Miss Cameron,
Schwartz, and Linden.
Assembly Association has not
endorsed any candidates for pres-
ident and executive vice-president.
Georgia Berland, '66, president of
Assembly, explained that Assembly
did not feel that Cunningham had
provided sufficient leadership in
the past as a member and execu-
tive vice-president of SGC. Fur-
ther, it did not feel that Golden
had had the experience needed to
head SGC.
However, it has endorsed Lin-
den, Schwartz, Miss Cameron and
Eisenberg as candidates for seats
on Council.

originally given its support to

paign posters that he was a mem-

"The sign being used by GROUP for campaign purposes in front
of the fishbowl belongs to the Young Republican club," YRC publicity
chairman Kenneth Yeasting charged yesterday.
Yeasting claimed that the sign was taken Thursday from the
basement of the Student Activities Building without permission from
any officer of the club. He said he noticed it on the way to class
Friday morning.
