Strange happenings Luce seeks concern
plague grad library for Viet prisoners

Commission studies
DID YOU KNOW?
LSI4 requirements

By ROB MEACHTJM
Late last night five city fire engines responded to an apparent
false alarm at the graduate library. The building was not evacuated
despite the potential danger to all the persons inside, and library
officials had little to say about the whole matter.
According to the library's circulation desk clerk, who refused
to give his name, the necessity of an evacuation is determined
jointly by the fire department, Burns security guards and library
personnel.
WHEN ASKED WHY the building wasn't evacuated, the gentle-
man said, "For an obvious .reason, we knew it was a false alarm."
When asked why be knew it was a false alarm, he responded, "I
cainot divulge that information."
WHAT OCCURED last night was a strange set of events that no
one seems to. know anything about. And even stranger yet was the
fact that no alarm was sounded in the building to alert the occupants
of the possible danger.

to the Saigon embassy in Wash-

Luce said it would also be help-
ful if the prisoners were given
honorary degrees or teaching posi-
tions at this and other American
universities. Writing letters, he
added, would indicate public con-
cern, and has helped the prisoner
situation in the past.

.Changes threaten advocates

(Continued from Page 1)
The ethnic advocates in par-
ticular, fear that their job de-
scription may change under the
proposed revamping.
"The reorganization of the
OSSP is a very real threat to
us." said Chicano Advocate Ar-
turo Nelson. "The revision would
probably be restrictive to my
power and flexibility and I won't
agree to anything without the
consent of my constituency," he
said.
THE ADMINISTRATION, how-
ever, seems to feel that the re-
organization will streamline the
functions of the advocates and
make them more manageable.
"I think the proposed revision,
is workable and will increase
cooperation because the advo-
cates will have departmental
spokespersons," said Tom East-
hope, Assistant Vice-President
for Student Services.
Jon Heise, Director of the In-

ternational Center feels that the
addition of the ethnic advocates
to the Center "may change
somewhat the Center's structure
and expand its function."
ACCORDING TO Black Ad-
vocate Dick Garland, the ad-
ministration has attempted to
keep the advocates in their pre-
sent low-profile.
"We must have some degree
of freedom of movement," Gar-
land said. "The administration
has already requested that we
not make public statements or,
proposals before the Regents
without the approval of the direc-
tor of the OSSP.
The advocates feel that their
main thrust should be in as-
sisting in problem-solving within
their various constituencies.
"However, one would con-
clude from our job description
that advocates serve mainly as
quiet, non-assertive advisers,"
said Garland.

JIM TOY, one of the Human
Sexuality Advocates feels that
the oddice was dismembered be-
cause "we were due for ex-
tinction unless we were hidden."
"I am uneisy about the pro-
posal because I think it may
change our image if we become
part of the Office of Religion
and Ethics," said Toy.
Human Sex'ol ity Advrocate
Jackie aailey feels that the de-
partmental switch may make the
advocates less accessible. "My
primary objection is that I don't
know if I'm going to have any
control over what I do, she
said.
