Teach-in to revive war debate

and consider VietnaE

On March 24, 1965, a group of Univer-
sity professors staged the first tech-in
on the American involvement in the
Vietnam War. The all-night event drew
over 3,000 participants and inspired
scores of teach-ins on other campuses

across the country. Next week, another
group of professors and an ad hoc
committee of Ann Arbor residents will
stage another teach-in about Vietnam.
The teach-in, entitled "What War?
What Now?" will begin Monday, March
20 and run through Friday, March 24,
the 13th anniversary of the first teach-
in back in 1965. The five-day program
will feature afternoon workshops and
evening* lectures by such speakers as

Luis Montilla: Boxing
toward the Olympics


In the early morning hours, while
most of us are stubbing our toes trying
to make it out of bed, a solitary figure
nimbly avoids potholes and ice patches
as he completes his roadwork, deter-
mined to make the Olympics.
Luis Montilla, 17, like many boxers,
hopes to compete in the 1980 Olympics
and ultimately win the coveted light-
heavyweight medal.

With heavily accented words spewed
in bunches followed by a pause - much
like the way a boxer throws a flurry of
punches before he steps back to inspect
his handiwork - Montilla tells about
the root of his aspirations.
