ELI Roommate Rule: A

Case Study

Threats Disrupt Teach-in

Two bomb scares last night in-
terrupted what was described as
the biggest demonstration in Uni-
versity history.
The first occurred at 7:25 p.m.
interrupting an "illegal" movie on
Viet Nam held in Greene House
in East' Quadrangle and the be-
ginning of the demonstration in
Angell Hall.

The second came as 2500 stu-
dents, faculty, and spectators were
packed into the four auditoria,
fishbowl and many passageways
there to hear the three lectures
denouncing United States policy
in Viet Nam.
Third Talk
But the third talk was barely
underway when helmeted police
strode up to the lecture stage to
inform students and protestors
that the buildings would have to
be cleared.

In the dormitory film showing,
the Greene House Lounge was
cleared as police searched for the
nonexistent bomb. Afterwards, the
film continued.
The movie, brought back from
Cuba by students, and distributed
through the May 2nd Movement,I
an organization founded on May 2,1
was a propaganda film used in
South Viet Nam villages by theJ
Viet Cong. The film expresses the
opinion, among others, that the
Geneva conference which divided
Viet Nam was void, and that thef
Viet Cong was only trying to unite'
their country against the alleged
"United States Imperialistic Co-~
In the first speech later, Robert
Browne, economist from Farleigh
Dickenson University and adviser
in Viet' Nam for three years for
the State Department, blamed the !
United States for the problems in
Southeast Asia.
"John Foster Dulles' fervent
anti-communism forced the United
States into a war, beginning as a
liberation movement, which we
cannot win," Browne declared. He
pointed -to general ineptness on
the part of the State Department
in Southeast Asia as a primary
reason for U.S. troubles there.

auditoria, and rooms scattered in throughout Angell Hall as part
of a "teach-in" protesting U.S. policy in Viet Nam. The protest
started when 20 faculty members decided to cancel their classes
in protest to U.S. policy. This drew attack from the state senate.
In response to growing publicity the teachers revised their ap-
proach and decided to have the "teach-in."

At the board meeting, Lane also revealed a plan for the city

Dean .Asks 'Liberating,

The educational experience should be liberating, broadening,

Robertson said last night.
Speaking on "Private Talents and Public Service" before the,
annual banquet for the College of Pharmacy and Rho Chi Society,
Robertson said "knowledge should be liberation from ignorance, mis-
conceptions, and half-truths."
Knowledge is a static process that serves as the means to wis-
dom, he said. Each student at the University is free to choose between

"Wisdom is liberation from fool-

Grants Equal Pay
For All Months
Of Three Terms
The Office of Academic Affairs
has announced a faculty salary
policy which will pay faculty
members equally as much for
teaching one-half the summer ses-
sion as they would receive for
teaching one-half a regular term.
This is a revision of a proposed
salary scale policy released last
year for the trimester system
which would have given the fac-
ulty 22 per cent of their salary for
teaching a half of the summer
session instead of the 25 per cent
the faculty pointed out they
would be paid for teaching one
half of either the fall or winter
Nevertheless, the financial as-
pects remain the same as in last
year's proposal. What has changed
is the basis of payment. The fac-
ulty will now be paid on the basis
of a new concept for an "annual
salary wage," which has been sub-
stituted for the "University-year
Under this "annual salary rate"
the academic year is defined as
eight months - two terms - of
teaching, with two days of paid
non-teaching time being accumu-
lated with each month of teach-
ing. This extra month made up of
t h e accumulated non - teaching
days can be taken when the fac-
ulty member desires, but must be
spent on "scholarly activities."
Under last year's draft, the ex-
tra month was defined by the
University as being a part of the
academic year - resulting in a
nine-month year-and was to be
spent in unspecified activities in
the time period following the end
of the two teaching terms.
Thus, the new policy is more
flexible for the faculty and at the
same time provides the basis for
equal payments for all teaching
It was around this that the
controversy over the first draft
revolved. The University had de-
fined the academic year as nine
months and offered one-ninth of
the University-year salary rate
for each month taught during the
summer session.
Since faculty members were to
teach only one-half of the ses-
sion, they would receive two-
ninths their salary as remunera-
The faculty, defining the aca-
demic year as the eight months
spent teaching, asserted that they
should be paid one-eighth their
University-year rate for each
month spent in the summer ses-
sion-resulting in their being paid
25 per cent of their salary for the
two months of the half term
Under the new system, the an-
nual salary rate is established at
