NUC talks continue;
state seen as target

Smokea's sil bpeoia
Michael Tola, a 21-year-old former University of North Carolina
student yesterday smokes an unidentified substance wrapped in the

Detroit. The jury is meeting concerning the bombing of the U.S.
Capitol in March.

Meeting in its third day
of secret session yesterday,
the national convention of
the New University Confer-
ence (NUC) considered pro-
posals which could make
Michigan the target of an
intensive campaign for open
admissions to state institu-
NUC is a national organiza-
tion, composed largely of left-
wing faculty and t e a c h i n g
f P 11 o w s, which seeks radical
change in the nation's educa-
tional system.
The Michigan proposal was
considered in a morning con-
ference, which discussed NUC's
Open Up the Schools (OUTS>
program. Attempts. to table the
mnotion were unsuccessful.
The OUTS perspective, which
forms the basic ideology for
NUC, includes completely open
admissions for all colleges, cur-
ricula relevant to blacks, women
and working class youth, and
promotion of a radical social
consciousness among faculty.
The afternloon debate cen-
tered upon two major proposals
from different groups within
A proposal from the confer-
ence's labor caucus, for radical
organizing among college facul-
ty received, after minor amend-
ment, overwhelming a u p p o rt
from the convention delegates.
The proposal basically called
for local chapters of NUC to
become actively involved in "at-
tempts to organize unions on
campuses where none exist" and
"be active" in such unions where
they already exist.
Convention delegate Joan Ep-
stine, a member of the labor
caucus, characterized teacher's
union struggles as "where the
power is" in higher education
The proposal in its original
form, however was the object of
extended, and at times heated,
debate among the over 200 dele-
gates present at the afternoon
Major objections were raised
over the implications of the pro-
posal-which some saw as dic-
tating to local chapters that
teacher union struggles were es-
sential to the NUC program.

Chicago delegation were espec-

esearch committee
delays for-mal report

Gov. Reubin Askew put 50 Na-
tional Guard troops on standby
alert in Jacksonville last night
where 166 young blacks have
been arrested in two nights of
racial rioting.
The shooting death of 15 year-
old Ray Hall by a white police-
man earlier in the week, was
credited with touching off the
racial conflict.
Since then at least one black
youth has been shot in an en-
counter with police, and several
persons have been injured, in-
cluding two policemen hit by
Askew's press secretary Don
Pride said the governor called
out the guard after receiving a
request for help from Jackson-
ville Mayor Hans Tanzler and
Duval County Sheriff Dale Car-
By late yesterday the troops
were in uniform at three Guard
centers in the city but had not
been summoned to help some 500

police officers patroling the riot-
troubled section.
Community relations officers
dispersed several street corner
gatherings of young blacks last
night with only one looting in-
cident reported.
Courthouse sources said the
possibility of a curfew was dis-
cussed by city officials, but no
final decision was made to im-
pose one.
City police and sheriff's dep-
uties were reinforced by a spec-
ial unit of the Florida Highway
Patrol operating "the monster,"

disturbances, it spewed huge
streams of tear gas and suc-
ceeded in clearing rioters from
several trouble spots.
The riot, which has done an

major outbreak of urban vio-
lence this summer, following
earlier incidents in Chatanooga,
Tenn. and Albuquerque,. New

A long-awaited report o n
classified research, scheduled to
be presented Monday to Sen-
ate Assembly, the faculty repre-
sentative body, will be offered
only in a preliminary form.
Psychology Prof. Warren Nor-
man, chairman of Senate As-
sembly, said the report, which
was to have been given by As-
sembly's Research Policies Com-
mittee, would be presented by
the committee's chairman or-
ally, but would only be in the
form of a preliminary or
progress report.
The committee was asked on
March 22 by Assembly to un-
dertake a study of the cur-
rent guidelines on classified re-
search at the University and re-
port back to the unit with re-
commendations in June.
The request was made after
Senate Assembly declined to
act on a number of proposals
that would have abolished or
strictly limited classified a n d
war research on campus.
Chemistry Prof. Isadore .Ber-
stein, chairman of the Research
Policies Committee, w as out

of town last night and unavail-
able for comment on the delay
in the formal presentation of
the report.
The current research guide-
lines prohibits research whose
"specific purpose is to destroy
human life or to incapacitate
human beings," but critics have
charged that this phrasing is
excessively vague and has not
served the limiting function for
which is was intended.
The committee is scheduled
to meet Monday morning be-
fore the Senate Assembly meet-
ing to work out the wording in
Berstein's oral report.
Norman says that Assembly
will not act on the report until
it receives the entire document
and -conceivably, might e v e n
table the receipt and acceptance
of it until September.
"We'd like to get this issue
(classified research) cleaned up
as soon as possible," he ex -
plained, "but it would also be
nice to wait until September
when the campus is fully popu-
lated and we could hold an
open metting."
