'U' history
By ELISA ISAACSON
Fifty years ago, only sixty blacks at-
tended the University. University
regulations barred them from dances
and from swimming facilities. Blacks
were to enter buildings such as the
Student Union via the back door.
Lenoir Stewart, a black University
alumnus from the class of 1928, retur-
ned to Ann Arbor this week with vivid
memories of the University's attitude
toward minority students.
A SLIGHT WOMAN who wears her
hair pulled back in a french bun,
Stewart participated in the formation of
what was perhaps the first inter-racial
campus organization in America, the
Negro Caucasion Club (NCC).
"We were trying to make the people
in this community aware of the con-
tributions of Negroes," says Stewart of
the club's purpose. "I think it was a
very successful program," she adds.
Formed in 1925, NCC's goal was to
promote full equality for all races. At
its genesis, it consisted of 26 students
and a faculty advisor.
ONE OF NCC's projects was to
analyzes the roots of racial prejudice in
the community.
"There was no place (in the city)
blacks could eat, except at a black
restaurant," said Stewart. Many
restaurant proprietors argued that if
they served blacks, the whites would
boycott their restaurant.
To gain admittance to the segregated
eating establishments, Stewart said
NCC staged what may have been the
first Ann Arbor sit-in. Some members
of the club planted themselves at a
table in a local restaurant notorious for

We goofed
On Thursday we reported that City Administrator
Sylvester Murray demoted City Clerk Jerome
Weiss after discussions with Mayor Louis Belcher
and the Republican caucus. Murray's office has
pointed out, however, that the Democratic caucus
was consulted as well. We apologize for the
omission.
On a personal note
Yesterday we noted that we received a handsome,
"handwritten" note from Congressman Carl Pur-
cell Thursday, only to find another personal memo,
identical to the first,while opening the rest of our
mail. It seems our beloved representative tried to
pull a fast one on us by sending machine-duplicated
copies of the memo. But we caught on quickly. And
yesterday, lo and behold, we received yet two more
of the "personal" noted from our man in
Washington. Looks like someone forgot to turn off
the Xerox machine.

'Back to school
Pity poor Eugene Krauss. The 32-year-old
millionaire says he wants more out of life than a
fancy house, trips around the globe and a well-
endowed bank account. So he's decided to change
careers and become-of all things-a professor.
"The business world is tremendously stimulating
and rewarding, but I just don't think it's the end
goal of a lifetime," he explained. Krauss built his
fortune after dropping out of college and branching
out from the family business. Now, after returning
to school and graduating from Columbia magna
cum laude Wednesday, he'll begin studies there in
the fall for his clinical medicine degree. eventually,
Krauss hopes to teach at a medical school and do
research in cell biology and neurology. Bet there
are plenty of profs right here who wouldn't mind
changing places with you, Gene.
On the outside .. .
We had a hunch this weather was too good to last.
It will be cloudy and windy today with late after-
noon thundershowers. The high should be in the
mid-70s with the rain ending by midnight. It will be
somewhat cooler Sunday with ahigh of 6 expected
under partly sunny skies. Have a nice weekend.
