He cited cases of "black folk who
gave their lives, who perished" for the
cause of equal rights. "If we fail to do
something for them, we're not worthy
of the sacrifice they made for us,"
Hooks said. "Black folk have paid a
tremendous price in this country."
Althugh he praised the Civil Rights
movement of the 60s, Hooks said of the
70s: "This is the most conservative age

said Hooks, are "trying to roll the clock
back" on the blacks.
Hooks, however, said he is opposed to
racial polarization. "If you go around
hating folk, you won't destroy them -
you'll kill yourself," he said.
In a final statement which was, like
many of his others, followed by enthus-
iastic applause, the orator stated, "We
talk about building a better black
community . . . we will never build it
unless we start giving of our
womanhood the respect it deserves."

Vietnam teach-in: No

paidA

60s

By MARTY LEVINE
A singer's calm protest songs
fought the noise of a restless
crowd at Schorling Auditorium
last night. After a few minutes,
he picked up his guitar, left the
stage, and this week's Vietnam
teach-in got underway.
History professor Marilyn
Young stressed that the current
teach-in, held this week to com-
memorate the 13th anniversary
of the first teach-in, was "not an
exercise in nostalgia, nor a
glorification of the 60s".
Young takes strong exception
to those who feel any
"mythology" has grown up
around Vietnam. "We are being
asked to forget and misremem-
ber," she said. People today,
Young contended, are trying to
"re-write the war so we can do it
again."
"THE AMERICAN gover-
nment lost in Vietnam," she-aad-
ded, "but the people of America
and the people of Vietnam won."
Abqal Ahmed, of Washington's
Institute of Policy Studies, spoke
at last night's teach-in and at the
first teach-in. Ahmed stressed
the importance of being con-
scious of history.
"What we are doing tonight and
what we will be doing tomorrow
- it ain't so little," he said. "It
might take a lifetime to show any
result, but heck, our children and
our grandchildren will know we
did something."
AHMED AGREES with
Young: "That wasn't our war, it
was their (the government's)
war. The enemy (the American
government) was bombing

ta gia tri
Hanoi. It was a victory for the
American people and for the
Vietnamese people. That the con-
sequences of Vietnam."
Long-time anti-war activist
David Dellinger, a defendant in
the Chicago Seven conspiracy
trial, ended the evening with an
emotional talk about his ex-
periecnes.
"ONE OF THE glories of the
sixties," he said, "was that
people learned to rely not on the
experts but on themselves. But it
wasn't all glamour. There was a
tremendous sense of strength and
solidarity."
Dellinger has a great confiden-
ce in the anti-war movement
today - in fact, he sees it as
being the healthiest ever.
"Nothing has changed," he
concluded. "The institutions (in.,
America) are still intact. Nobody
was born too late. Maybe some of
us were born too early."

(Continued from Page 1)
Israeli evacuation of Lebanon.
THE CARTER administration
believes the Israeli response was out of
proportion to the provocation, and has
helped push through a United Nations
resolution calling on Israel to withdraw
from southern Lebanon and authorizing
a 4,000-man peacekeeping force for the
area. Israel has long been skeptical of
U.N. efforts to ease tensions in the Mid-
dle East and Israeli government of-
ficials have expressed doubt over the
propriety of Sunday's U.N. Security
Council action.
In Jerusalem and at U.N. headquar-
ters in New York, there were signs an
Israeli withdrawal, followed by
stationing of U.N. peacekeepers in the
area, would not be quick. It might take
"weeks or months," said one U.N. of-
ficial.
Israeli officials said Begin will
outline his ideas for dealing with the
problem in southern Lebanon during
his meetings with Carter.
Before his departure from Jerusalem
on Saturday, he told reporters he had a
formula in mind but gave no details.
The U.S. side is described as anxious
not to allow too much of Begin's visit,
originally scheduled for last week, to be

spent on a discussion of southern
Lebanon. Among other things, the ad-
ministration is hopeful the talks will
narrow the obstacles blocking a resum-
ption of Israeli-Egyptian peace
negotiations.
Carter has objected strongly to
Begin's contention that U.N. Resolution
242, which calls for Israeli withdrawal
from occupied territory, does not apply
to the West Bank of the Jordan River.
Unless Begin changes that view, Carter
said recently, it would be "a very
serious blow to the prospects of peace."

years in prison and $2,000 in fines for
each count of perjury and subor-
dination of perjury, five years and
$5,000 for obstruction of a government
proceeding, and five years and $10,000
for conspiracy and making a false
statement in a government matter.
THE ACTION came on the last day
that charges could be brought before
the five-year statute of limitations ex-
pired.
Although ITT Chairman Harold
Geneen had also been a prospective
target in the department's perjury in-
vestigation, he was not named in
yesterday's action and the department
said in a statement that "no other ac-
tions ... are contemplated."
All three men testified at hearings by
the Senate subcommittee on
multinational corporations that ITT
had not acted in any substantial way to
prevent the election of Marxist
Salvador Allende as president of Chile
in 1970.
However, it was disclosed in late 1975
that both the CIA and ITT had funded
Allende's election opponents, with ITT
giving at least $350,000 to support
Allende's opponents in the 1970 elec-
tions. Allende was later killed in a Sep-
tember 1973 coup.
In New York, an ITT spokesman who
asked not to be identified said the com-
pany is confident that the two
executives charged by the Justice
Department will be cleared.
