Charles McCracken

SMC leader
to speak at
junior high
In a reversal of a previous de-
cision, permission has been given
a group of local junior high stu-
dents to hold a school assembly
featuring a socialist anti-war ac-
Peter Camejo, a prominent
member of the Massachusetts
Student Mobilization Committee
(SMC), will be allowed to ad-
dress a Scarlett Junior High As-
sembly- Monday, all apparent ob-
jections by school officials hav-
ing been satisfied.
Las week, Camejo was barred
from speaking at Scarlett for
what planners termed 'political"
reasons. In a letter explaining
his denial, principal Joseph Va-
chon said his action was based
on "information which came to
(his) attention" and was effec-
tive "system-wide."
Later, however, Vachon said
his decision was based solely on
the lack of "adequate" informa-
tion provided by the school's
SMC chapter - sponsor of the
anti-war program. He claimed
that because he had never re-
ceived a formal written request
for an assembly, Camejo could
not be allowed to speak.
Students and SMC's faculty ad-
visor, Gail Reed, contended such
written requests had never been
required before.
Much of the charge that Va-
chon had based his denial on
political considerations stemmed
from a letter distributed among
Ann Arbor secondary school prin-
cipals attacking Camejo and
criticizing his book "How to
Make a Revolution."
Vachon says he borrowed the
letter, printed in a small Massa-
chusetts newspaper, from Ann
Arbor Pitneer High School of-
ficials and made copies to show
to Scarlett faculty. He said the
article "aroused his suspicions"
about Camejo but later said it
had no effect on his decision to
bar him.
Huron High School principal
Paul Meyers, a member of the
group in which the letter was cir-
culated, said yesterday he had
received no communications con-
cerning Camejo and explained
