A T THE Parsons hearing yesterday, someone remarked
that the proceedings were a kangaroo court.
A woman was heard to ask, "But where is the kan-.

What's the rush
DON'T LET ANYONE tell you that justice is not swift.
After all, Huey P. Newton, co-founder of the Black
Panther Party was released from jail -yesterday after
serving only almost two years.
In keeping with its reputation of all due speed, it
took the California District Court of Appeals only one and
a half years to order a new trial deciding that the judge
presiding at Huey's murder trial really should have in-
formed the jury that if Huey was unconscious at the time
of the policeman's murder, he was innocent.
But then, everyone is really used to the long appellate
procedure. What is not quite so easily explained is why
Huey had to. stay in jail after the appellate court ordered
a new trial. After all, he was freed yesterday, and the
appellate decision was rendered May 29.
JODAY IS THE 25th anniversary of the atomic bombing

THE MIC-%GAN DAILY
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
tion is after SDS member
Robert Parsons again, and this
time the whole affair is taking on
a comic air of unreality, sprink-
led liberally with the forebodings
of 1984-style repression.
Parsons, who is charged with
striking engineering Prof. John
Young during a demonstration
against a General Electric recruit-
er Feb. 18, was summarily expelled
from the literary college in March,
precipitating a major controversy
The suspension was revoked
when 300 students staged a sit-in
in the LSA Bldg. and a new wit-
ness came forward causing then-
Dean William Hays, who had or-
dered the disciplinary action, to
say he was "no longer sure" that
Parsons was guilty as charged.
Ever since then, University of-
ficials have been itching to get
their hands on Parsons - by
whatever means necessary.
In the meantime, however, Par-
sons has graduated from the Uni-
versity. He has also been convict-
ed of the assault charge in civil
court and has served out his sent-
Even for an administration bent
on revenge, it would have seemed
reasonable to give up on the case
because Parsons is no longer un-
der its jurisdiction.
But the administration seems
insistent on having its way, and
has ordered a fact-finding hear-
ing before an "impartial" hearing
officer appointed by President
Robben Fleming. The case would
then presumably be handled by
the literary college administrative
board, which, at the time of the
alleged offense, was empowered by
the University to handle such
THERE ARE A NUMBER of
serious objections to the current
proceedings against Parsons --
issues all members of the Uni-
versity community should ser-
iously consider if they are truly
interested in upholding the tradi-
tional tenents of Anglo-American
r Parson's case has already
been handled by the civil courts,
and there is no reason why the
University should add to his pun-
isument. Students certainly should
not be punished more severely or
in more ways than any other=
*.The hearing officer procedure
was never used or even discussed
on campus until well after the
alleged act took place. Use of this
procedure in Parsons' case is
parallel to trying an individual un-
der a law- passed after the act
was committed - a process ban-
ned by the U.S. Constitution.
* Parsons has not been told
under what rules he is being
charged. (Indeed, no one in the
University administration seems
quite sure on this point.) This un-
certainty constitutes an important
denial of Parsons' right to due
* Of the many sets of Univer-
sity rules (e.g. the Regents' In-
terim Rules and those in the LSA
Faculty Code) only those approv-
ed by Student Government Coun-
cil have the approval of a repre-
sentative student government and
include the right of trial by a
jury of peers. The other regula-
tions and procedures are undemo-
cratic and should not be used.
*Non-academic offenses do not
constitute a reflection upon the
academic competence of .a stu-
dent and academic penalties like
suspension or expulsion should not
be allowed in such cases.
As a historical footnote, it is
interesting to note that the failure
of the literary college to make
their action against Parsons stick
last March has caused a major
ominous upheaval in University
by their inability to discipline any
student at will, the administra-
tion has re-oriented procedures
with the passage of the Interim
Rules, which allow the president
to appoint an "impartial" hearing
officer who will act as judge, jury
and executioner for accused stu-
By contrast, the present action
against non-student Parsons is
merely a joke, a collossal carica-
ture of an institution so deter-
mined to repress dissent that it
can't tell the students from the

To the Editor:
ALLAN F. SMITH, who has
reigned over the University's
schools and colleges as vice presi-
dent for academic affairs for five
years, died late last night in what
appeared to be a freak f i r e-
cracked explosion. He was 58.
Throngs of students and fa-
culty members filled the central
campus area only minutes later in
a joyous celebration marked by
encores of "Ding Dong the Witch
At one point, the crowd surged
toward the Law Library and rip-

pictures of the late vice president
which has hung on its walls since
he took office. Smith had served

and Vice Presidents Wilbur Pier-
pont, Stephen Spurr, Michael Rad-
dock and Fidele Fauri all out of

presidency fell immediately upon
Acting Vice President for Stu-

At a press conference early this
morning, Newell announced that
the University would immediately
break all ties with the Defense
Department and with corpora-
Instead, she said, the University
would be converted into a mam-

fn: Shadow over Latin America
TPHERECENT hijacking of a 747 jumbo
jet to Havana and Premier Castro's
presence when it arrived at the airport
have once again focused world attention
on Cuba. One offshoot of the whole af-
fair has been the suggestion in s o m e
quarters 'that the United States could
circumvent many hijackings by "recog-
What this argument doesn't realize is
that "recognition" of Cuba - establish-
ment of diplomatic and commercial re-
lations - would be nothing short of a
disaster for U.S. prestige and credibility
around the world.
TO UNDERSTAND THE enormity of
such an action it is necessary to con-
sider the traditional role of the United
States in Latin America. Until 1959 the
Cuban government cooperated very nice-
ly with what might be called the "Ameri-
can Plan" for Latin American countries
(AmPlan for short).
According to AmPlan the purpose of a
L a t i n American country is to provide
cheap labor and investment opportuni-
ties for American businesses. To insure
that labor is willing to work for close to
starvation wages, AmPlan dictates that
the unemployment rate should be ap-
proximately 25 per cent.
Another AmPlan directive is that the
limited resources of the latin country be
used to build a lavish and modern cap-
ital city. A modern capital serves several
useful purposes. One of these is of course
to provide the Americans who own and
operate the businesses with a comfortable
headquarters. Another purpose is to ac-
comodate the tourists, who are a valu-
able income source to the latin countries,
and would not be expected to stay in the
hovels which serve as housing for people
outside the capital city.
A final and most important AmPlan
principle is that a small number of na-
tives 4e allowed to enjoy the benefits
which accrue to the American owners of
the country. It would naturally look very
suspicious to have Americans, .at least
visibly, in control of every phase of -a
latin country's life. These rich natives -
in government and business -- can al-
ways be counted on to boost and support
the presence of Americans in their coun-
CUBA, UNTIL 1959, was a model latin
country with respect to AmPlan instruc-
tions. The U.S., therefore, did not espec-
ially welcome or see any need for the
massive uprising which swept Fidel Cas-
tro into power New Year's Day 1959. The
U.S. State Department, however, grace-
fully accepted the situation and hoped.
t h e revolution wouldn't change things
Unfortunately, the revolution did be-
gin to change things. Large land holdings
were broken up, telephone service was
expanded, medical care was made avail-
able free of charge to everyone, and rents
were reduced. Although the U.S. would
send planes to firebomb the Cuban su-
gar fields, and drop propaganda leaflets,
the Cuban revolution continued to make
irritatingreforms which flew in the face
of every AmPlan tenet.
THE LAST STRAW CAME at the be-
ginning of July, 1960. At that time the
Cuban government took over the man-
agement of three United States oil re-
fineries which had refused to refine So-
viet crude oil. Castro justified the inter-
vention by saying: "What is the differ-
ence whether the oil comes from Vene-
zuela or Russia or Timbuctoo? After all,
our government having purchased it, it.
becomes the property of the nation and
refusal of these foreign companies to pro-
cess it amounts to a challenge of our au-
thority and law."
The U.S. government, however, was not
misled by the Cuban premier's rhetoric,
and promptly cut off Cuba's subar quota.
Since 86 per cent of Cuba's export was.
sugar, and the majority of it went to the
United States, a U.S. refusal to buy su-
gar could well be expected to topple the
Unfortunately, the Soviet government
offered to buy the sugar which the Unit-
ed States had refused, and the Castro re-
gime was still afloat.
Meanwhile, Castro was more than un-
happy by what he saw as an attempt to
destroy his regime and the Cuban econ-
omy. In retaliation for what he termed
"American economic aggression," he be-
gan to expropriate American industries
--something that had not been previous-
Some Americans were upset by the Cu-
ban government taking over U.S. busi-
nesses, and Vice President Nixon reflect-
ed this feeling on Oct. 18 when he told a
cheering American Legion convention in
Miami Beach, "We will very promptly
take the strongest possible economic
measures to counter the economic ban-
ditry being practiced by this (Castro's)
regime against ouf country and our citi-
The next day the U.S. ordered an em-
bargo on all exports to Cuba except for
certain foodstuffs and medicines. The ac-
tion was in conformity with the Export
Control Act Jin which Congress stated:
"It is the policy of the United States to
use export controls . . . to exercise the
necessary vigilance over exports from the
standpoint of their significance to the
AND THERE THE situation stands to
this day. The United States neither
trades nor conducts diplomatic relations
with Cuba. Our only contact is through
occassional CIA-sponsored guerrilla in-
vasions and airplane hijackings.
It is important - at least so long as
Cuba maintains its present economic and
social organization - that our relations
with Cuba be confined to those presently
existing. Cuba must realize that until it
subscribes to the AmPlan program, and
until it realizes, as -does the rest of the
world, that the Caribbean is an American
lake, the U.S. will continue to ignore it,
commercially and diplomatically.
