A threatened student walkout at Ann Arbor High School to protest
the suspension of three male students for non-conforming hair styles
failed to materialize on September 26, 1968. About 150 students rallied
around the school's flagpole following dismissal instead of walking out

their spies were.

ALLAN BAKKE IS all smiles as he enters the lecture hall for his first day of
medical school classes. The U.S. Supreme Court ordered the University of
California to admit the 38-year-old engineer after he charged he was a victim of
"reverse discrimination."

try to devise a constitutionally accep-
table admissions policy. Race will con-
tinue to be a factor in admissions, the
university has said.
The powerful hind thigh muscles and
long hind feet of kangaroos enable then
to leap as much as 27 feet or clear a 10-
foot fence in a single jump.

It's not unusual for incoming students
at the University to suffer pangs of
loneliness and alienation. For minority
students, however, the problem can be,
especially acute.
That's whythe Sub-TaskForcel on
Minority Student Concerns has
declared Thursday "Minority Student
Day" and is sponsoring an all-day open
house to mark the occasion.
THE SUB-TASK Force, organized
earlier this year underthe University's
Affirmative Action Office, has the
enlisted the aid of about two dozen of-
fices which will offer refreshments,
films and tours of office facilities to in-
teres ted students.
Michael Garcia; Affirmative Action
Program Associate for Minority Con-
cerns and the activities co-ordinator,
said he hopes the offices will, "in a
positive way, make the students feel
Garcia referred to Thursday's ac-
tivities as a "three-pronged effort,"
which includes the open houses, a series
of cultural activities and performances
in the Pendleton Room of the Michigan
Union and a disco dance in the Union
The problems of incoming minority
students, as Garcia sees them, "stem
from not knowing where to go and who
to see. If a student hits four or five of
those (offices) and feels welcome, that
can make a big difference and make

him feel hope," he said.
SINCE MINORITY students often
come from troubled backgrounds, Gar-
cia said, the availability of University
facilities "determines in a large way
whether they are going to make it and
whether they are going to stay here."
Garcia said he relates to the Univer-
sity's attrition rate to a lack of services.
"There is just not enough being done"
to help minorities adjust to campus life,
he said, although he added he feels the
University is making a relatively good
effort to recruit students of diverse
"But the getting of minorities and
women is not enough," the activities
coordinator emphasized. "It's the
keeping that matters."
The Sub-Task Force is composed of
representatives from such supportive
service groups as Financial Aid Office,
the Opportunity Program, the Coalition
for the Use of Learning Skills (CULS)
and Minority Student Services (MSS),
and is funded by a variety of University
Garcia, who has been the Affirmative
Action Office's program coordinator,
since January, said he hopes the task
force will continue to deal with issues
that involve minorities. "When the day
is over, the spirit of Minority Student
Day should carry on throughout the
year,'"'he said.

Soviets suggest JFK plot

MOSCOW (XJPI) - Soviet television
featured an hour-long film report on
Dallas Sunday night, suggesting
President . John Kennedy's
assassination was planned by the city's
rich reactionaries.
The show, narrated by Moscow
commentator Valentin Zorin, devoted
15 minutes to the Kennedy
assassination and said it was planned
by the late oil millionaire H. L. Hunt.
THE SHOW on Dallas was one of a
series of 11 programs on American
cities in the 70s being run on Soviet
The program showed how the Dallas
oil boom gave birth to a new class of
super rich - including H. L. Hunt -
and offset this with footage of the
poorer sections of the city. r
The Soviet .program poitrayed the
assassination as the culmination of a
struggle between the new oil

millionaires of Dallas and the Eastern
moneyed establishment represented by
President Kennedy.
