assistant will replace

As University president in 1968,
Fleming chose Canham to succeed
Fritz Crisler.
Lund was a finalist in the 1968
search to succeed Crisler, but lost
the position to Canham. Regarded
by many as a grandfather figure in
the athletic department, Lund should
maintain the status quo Canham has
established. The Wolverine athletic
department is widely viewed as the
best in the nation.
Lund's involvement with

athletics encompassed all levels
whether it be as a player, coach, or
administrator. Lund won nine letters
at Michigan as a baseball,
basketball, and football player. A
1945 first-round draft choice of the
Chicago Bears, Lund passed on
professional football. to pursue a
baseball career.
As an outfielder, Lund played for
the Brooklyn Dodgers, St. Louis
Browns, and the Detroit Tigers
between 1945-1954. Lund returned

to the University in 1958 as head
baseball coach. His teams made two
consecutive college world series
appearances, winning the NCAA
championship in 1962.
Lund became the player personnel
director for the Detroit Tigers in the
fall of 1962. He helped mold the
club into contenders. The Tigers
won the 1968 World Series against
St. Louis in seven games.
In 1970, Lund assumed his
present position with the Michigan
athletic department.

The trial of Rackham student
Harold Marcuse, accused of assault-
ing a police officer and a University
security officer, has been set for Feb.
1. Marcuse appeared yesterday in
15th District Court at his pre-trial
hearing on two counts of assault and
Marcuse, who is representing
himself, stood mute at his arraign-
ment on Dec. 10 and the court
entered a "not guilty" plea for him.
At arraignment, a defendant may
plead "guilty," "not guilty," or may
stand mute.
Marcuse is accused of assaulting

Public Safety Robert Pifer and Ann
Arbor Police Detective Douglas
Barbour at the Career Planning and
Placement Office on Nov. 25.

Rackham Student Government and
the Latin American Solidarity
Committee - organized the two
protests. Both groups have offered

offer a $500 reward to any person
who could supply them with
information that could result in
charges of conspiracy for Marcuse's
arrest against University Public
Safety Officials.
Violence erupted at the office
when close to 30 people clashed
with University Public Safety of-
ficers and Ann Arbor Police who
were protecting Central Intelligence
Agency recruiters holding on-campus
interviews. The demonstrators were
protesting the agency's involvement
in Latin America.
The police report describing the
incident says Marcuse kneed Barbour
in the back while forcing his way
into the rooms where the interviews
were being conducted. The report
also accuses Marcuse of grabbing
Pifer from behind.

"The University has taken these

toilet, and then Fleming comes up

Phillips called the document a
"disguise trying to cover up the
institutional racism at t h i s

has "messed up. He's given people a
reason to be active."

administrators said yesterday that the
time is right for Fleming's draft.
"There is an inherent right in the
University administration to

said Regent Paul Brown (D -

can do our job. A person has a right

be tricky; obviously, he has gotten a

Fleming's draft is similar to, if not
harsher than, the proposed code of
non-academic conduct that has been
the subject of intense debate the past
four years.
"Presidential policy is the most
dangerous policy," Weine said.
"We're demanding that he follow
7.02. We're not saying that he can't
do it; we won't let him do it."
Regental bylaw 7.02 states that
any change in the rules of non-
academic conduct must be approved
by the University Council, a nine-
member committee of students,
faculty, and administrators. It must
also be ratified by MSA and the
faculty's Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs.

Pro -Palestinian
Israeli consul g

In a speech marred by protest, Israeli Consul
General Zvi Brosch last night defended Israeli policy in
the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.
About 200 anti-Israel demonstrators, in a protest
outside of the Michigan Union, condemned Israeli
violence in the occupied territories, and some called for
a complete Israeli withdrawal from the regions.
Brosch, a former Israeli ambassador to Romania,
Burma, and Sri Lanka, was scheduled to discuss the
"Middle East Peace Prospect in Perspective." The
speech quickly deteriorated into a heated battle between
Brosch and the protesters over Israel's proper role in the
Middle East.
Repeated outbursts from protesters forced Brosch to
stop on numerous occasions during his speech.
Brosch defended Israel's actions handling of the
uprisings in the occupied territories. When asked why
the Israelis were using live ammunition, Brosch
replied, "When you try to kill soldiers by firebombs,

protesters mar
neral's speech
you must expect them to fire back."
In terms of a long-term solution for the West Bank
and Gaza Strip, Brosch said, "(Israel and the Arab
nations) must come to a joint agreement on the future
of these territories. This is not impossible."
Prior to the speech in the Pendleton Room of the
Michigan Union, the protesters assembled on the front
steps, where several demonstrators made speeches
attacking Israel.
The protesters demanded an end to Israeli violence
against Palestinians in the West Bank, recognition of
the Palestinians' right to self-determination, and an end
to the deportation and torture of Palestinians arrested
for protesting.
One speaker, an LSA junior who spoke on
condition of anonymity, said he was beaten and arrested
by Israeli soldiers while taking part in an anti-Israeli
protest in Gaza City last week.
"I'm here to save Israel," said the student, who said
he had been in Israel to visit friends and family.

Society must work for progress
towards social and economic equality
for Blacks rather than "rest on the
laurels" of the achievements that
have already been made, said
Virginia Lt. Gov. Lawrence Wilder
in a keynote address yesterday.
Wilder's speech at H il1l
Auditorium was the opening event
of the University-sponsored Dr.
Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium
scheduled for yesterday and today.
Wilder said that Black youth, who
often "take for granted that they can
sit wherever they want in a bus
depot or restaurant," have a particular

Blacks are to achieve equality in
society, Wilder said. He said schools
and universities have a responsibility
not only to attract minority students,
but to make a greater effort to retain
the students they have, particularly
students from broken homes who
run a high risk of dropping out.
To effectively advance the cause
of Blacks, educators should "give
attention to the youngster who
cannot read, cannot write, cannot
speak properly," Wilder said.
WILDER called on people of all
races to try to achieve equality for
Blacks, but he added, "Blacks should

ALLEN and Farley pointed out
gaps between the two races in such
indicators as life expectancy, infant
mortality rates, and average wages.
"The race tax, if you will,
persists. The inability of Blacks to
close the gap with comparable
whites is still with us," Allen said.
Allen said the gaps between the
races are not the fault of Blacks.
Rather, Blacks are handicapped by
the segregation in many American
