Apollo seen as issue of national priority

By Liza Madison
DB Staff Reporter

The scheduled lunar landing of Apollo 11 astronauts this Sunday has drawn reaction, ranging from enthusiastic to unfavorable, from faculty members and students here.

Supporters of the space program view the moon shot as a “remarkable achievement of American technology” and a “tribute to our scientific prowess.”

Political Science Professor Bernard Brodie, director of the Securities Studies Project here, said that the journey “really is a tremendous accomplishment. I’m very exhilarated by the fact that we’re going to the moon. I’m nationalistic enough to feel pleased though I’m not delirious.”

However, the moon flight has its detractors here also. A number of faculty members and students question the ultimate value of the space program and would lower it several notches among the national priorities.

Height of absurdity

Philosophy Professor C. Wade Savage, a member of the liberal faculty group, Committee of Concerned Faculty (CCF), believes that “space exploration ought not to be undertaken until the problems of this planet have been alleviated. It is the height of absurdity to undertake exploration of space at the present time.”

Among some students opposition to the program was even stronger. Coalition member Dennis Rubenstein said that “when 10 million people are starving in the United States, and we can’t even solve the problems of our cities, it is wrong for America to devote her energies and money to stick an American flag on the moon.”

Steven Harwood, a law student, said that “it’s too high up in our priorities, compared to the fact that we’re not spending a penny on the proposed Department for Peace and less and less each year for education.”

Perverse heirarchy of values

Professor Leon Letwin, another CFF member, said the moon program “illustrates a perverse heirarchy of values.”

“We’re going to the moon for all the wrong reasons,” Letwin said.”We’re spending vast sums on the wrong thing in pursuit of the wrong goals.”

Miss Angela Davis 1107 i/2 87th Street Los Angeles, Calif. 90044 Dear Miss Davis: July 16, 1969 ., The Regents of the University of California have a policy which specifies that no person who is a member of the Communist Party shall be employed by the University. The University has received reports to the affect that you are a member of that organization. An article . . appearing in the UCLA Daily Bruin of July 1; 1969 states that a person recently employed as an Acting Assistant Professor scheduled to begin teaching in the Winter Quarter in the Department of Philosophy is a member of the Communist Party. You have been appointed to such a position with a pay period from July 1, 1969 through June 30, 1970. An article in the San Francisco Examiner of July 9, 1969 indicates that you are the person referred to in the Bruin article. Accordingly, I am constrained by Regental policy to request that you inform me whether or not you are a membe r of t he Connnunist Party. Please furnish me with your written reply not later than July 25, 1969. Sincerely yours, August 4, 1969 To: Professor David Kaplan Vice-chairman. Department of Philosophy From: Kenneth L . .Karst Re: The constitutional va.lidity ot the Regents’ resolutions of 1940 and 1949 prohibiting the University’s employment of •~bers of the Communist Party Introduction This aemorandua responds to your request of July 30, 1969, on behalf of the Philosophy Department, for an opinion on the validity of two resolutions of the Board ot Regents, as those resolutions are stated on page 37 of the Handbook .for Faculty Members of the University of Calitornia: (l) The 1940 resolution is quoted in the Handbook. Its operative language is: “. . . aeabership in the Comaunist Party is incompatible with aemberahip in the faculty of a State University.” (2) The 1949 resolution is paraphrased in the Handbook as saying “that no aeaber of the COIUluist Party sball be employed by the University.” In 1969, the Regents adopted ·an amendllent to Standing Order 102.).(a): “No political test aball ever be considered in the appointment and prOilotion of any faculty member or employee.” The 1969 amendment appears, on its face. to supersede both the 1940 and the 1949 policies. However, the Regents might in the future choose to rescind their most recent declaration of policy, or to adopt an exception for the case of membership in the Co.aunist Party . In this memorandum, I shall assuae t2r ~~sea of argument that the 1969 amendment makes no change in the 1940 and 1949 resolutions, and that those resolutions continue to r epresent Regental policy. rofessor Dav id ‘ aplan – 2 · ·u.mmary of C0nclusions I.

I’m writing about the administration’s refusal to date to approve ·Miss Angela Davist appointment to a ·Summer .Fellowship, notwithstanding the unequivocal commitment previously made to her. While I did not attend the meeting called by philosophy department representatives on August 1 to discuss this, I was subsequently informed about what transpired. From every indication, what is involved is the overt intrusion of political tests for academic employment. This is morally and educationally impermissible. · It is almost certainly unconstitutional. And to the degree that it results from regental pressure, formal or informal, it is wholly at odds with the Regents’ stated renunciation of political tests for employment and represents a de facto reversal of their delegation of non-tenured hiring decisions to the campuses. It is therefore of the highest danger to the University. I do not doubt that numerous representa-tions to this effect have been made to you. Nor, given your record, do I doubt either your concern for the principles involved or your awareness of the extreme danger this creates for the University. In light of this, it seems to me imperative that you approve Miss Davis’ appointment now. i wish to ‘make a further point of special concern to me because of its ·relation to minority faculty recruitment. It is ·bard to believe Miss Davis’ case will not ·come to be perceived by many people in baldly racial terms. Her race will not be regarded irrelevant to the treatment accorded her. In any event, whether . intended or not, such political tests will tend to have a · specially negative effect on the efforts to enlarge the minority faculty. If the University is serious in its desires to expand its minority faculty, it must be prepared for the fact that minority candidates will with some frequency have unconventional political backgrounds and views (judged from white perspectives), views and backgrounds in no way calculated to endear them to the governor or to those regents associated with his viewpoint. The contemporary black ·.political environment guarantees that. If minority candidates must Vice-Chancellor David s. Saxon , 2, August 11, 1969 establish their political acceptability to the regents or to the administration as a precondition to employment, our minority faculty recruitmen t program will become a mockery, as will our general claims to academic integrity. Tl1e University will, I am afraid, end up paying an incalculable pr ice. I am writing bec a use of the urgency of the issues as I see them. If I am wron g in any of my assumptions about the facts, I apolog ize and ask that you c orrect me. I intend to raise this issue with the Equal Opportun ity Committ,ee at the earliest opportunity.

On behalf of the Philosophy Department, UCLA, I am sending you this account of the matter. Last April, Miss Angela Yvonne Davisi: was offered, and accepted, a teaching position and a summer research appointment in the Philosophy Departme nt at UCLA, both to take effect July 1, 1969. These decisions ‘”ere made in ac cordance \vith . established University procedures. Miss Davis >vas furthermore assure d. that a continuation of her appointments for a second year would depend only on the adequate performance of her dut i es during the first year. The UCLA Administration signed Miss Davis’ Employment Form for the teaching appointment on May 9, 1969. According to standa rd clerical procedures the form authorizing payment of her summer research stipend (Change in Employment Status Form) ‘”as not signed at that time . On July 1, 1969, William Tulio Divale, a UCLA student, wrote a column in our campus paper, The Daily Bruin, trying to justify the fact that he had been working as an undercover agent for the FBI. In the course of his column he alleged that the Philosophy Department had hired a member of the Communist Party as an Acting Assistant Professor. He did not name the person to >vhom he referred. On July 9, in a report by Ed Montgomery in the San Francisco Examiner, Miss Davis was named as the person to “1<7hom the column in the Brui1~ had referred.

We know of no other public allegations regarding Miss Davis’ political affi liations. Yet on July 11, two days afte r the Examiner article appeared, The Regents of the University of California met and instructed the UCLA Administration to determine whether Miss Davis is a member of the Communist Party . They directed the hance~ lor to report his findings at their meeting in mid-September. Miss Davis ‘ Change in Employment Status Form for her s ummer research appointment had not, as of July 11, been signed. To this date it rema ins unsigned. Certain University· statutes and resolutions bear on this case, as do some recent dec isions by t he United States Supreme Court. 1. In 1940, and again in 1949, The Regents res olved that membership in the Communist Party shall disqualify one from becoming a member of the Faculty of the Un i versity of Ca l ifornia. 2. In June, 1969, The Regents adopted a Standing Order reinstating their pm.;er to pass on tenure appointments in the University. However, in the course of that Order (102.1) they also stated that ”No political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee.” 3. In June also , the UCLA Academic Senate adopted, by vote of 696-151, a resolution of “warning to the campus administration, faculties, departments, and concerne d Senate committees not to allow The Regents ‘ re cent wi thdr a~.;ral of campus contra~ over academic promotions and appointments at t he tenure level to result in any implicit or explicit self-censorship which permits the question of the political acceptability of candidates to intrude itse l f into the review process.” 4. The Supreme Court, in the case of Keyishian v. Board of Rege nts, 385 U.S. 589 (1967), struck down New York statutes that made membership in the Corr.munist Party grounds for disqualifying one from teaching in a public institution — in t his instance, New York’s State University in Buffalo. Relying on the Keyishian and ot:!Cr. decisions, the California Supreme Court, in Voge l v. County of Los Angeles, 68 Cal. 2d 18, 64 Cal. Rptr . L~09 (1967) , invalidated a section of the California Cons titution requiring public employees to sign an oath disclaiming membership in any organiz ation that advocates the violent overthrm.; of the Government. These court decisi ons appear to establish the legal impropriety of disqualifying anyone from university employment on grounds of memb ership in the Communist Parr.:y, or any other poli tical organizat ion. Moreover , The Regents’ Standing Order 102.1 can be construed as superseding earlier Regental re solutions prohibiting the employ!11ent o£ Communists. Yet by the i r ac tions The Regents have given ev i dence that t bey mean t o violate Miss Davis’ r i ghts, to ignore the courts’ rulings, and to force confrontation between themselves and a large portion of the University’s faculty. -3- Up to August 20th, despite many meetings and communications between members of the Philosophy DLpartment and the Chancellor, it was not certain >vhether the Administration \vould sign Miss Davis’ Change in Employment Status Form. But on the afternoon of the 20th, after meeting >vith repre sentatives of The Regents, the Chancellor informed the Philosophy Department that he had ‘~een directed by The Regents (by their int~rpr etat ion of their action of July 11, 1969) to take no steps affecting the employment status of Miss Angela Davis pending further action by The Regents follm•ing their receipt of the information ••hich they instructed the Administration to obta in concerning the appropriatene ss of her employment under the terms of the Regental policy barring appointment of members of .the Communist Party.” In a letter dated August 26, 1969, the Chancellor repeated that he had been directed by The Regents to take no further steps affecting the employment status of Miss Davis. He ••ent on to say, “I must report to you that the investigation I am required to make includes forwarding to her a copy vhich you make reference in your letter of August 7, 1969.” The letter in question contained the sentence, “I am constrained by Regental policy to request that you inform me whether or not you are a member of the Communist Party.” It was sent to Miss Davis on July 16, but it \vas returned undelivered and was not sent again at that time. I, as the Chairman of the Philosophy Department, have throughout urged that Hiss Davis should not be questioned regarding her alleged membership in the Communist Party. I have throughout also taken th e position that the surrnner research employment represents a valid University obligation, and that the Change in Employment Status Form ought to be signed without delay. These positions Here affirmed on August 22, 1969, in a resolution (full text attached) passe d by unanimous vote of those active members of the Department \vho ••ere th en in Los Angeles. In the same resolution the Department also declared that it v1ill not cooperate ••ith any inquiry into Hiss Davis’ political affiliations, or any further revieH of her qualifica tions othenvise than in accordance with normal Unive rsity procedures. We mean to adhere both to orderly procedure and to established law, despite higher official ac tions that go contrary to both. Hembers of the Committees on Academic Freedom and on Privilege and Tenure of the Los Angeles Division of the Academic Senate, and officers of the American Association of University Professors, have been fully informed of these events. Since one of the allegations against Miss Davis is that she is a member of the Black Panthers, members of the Department have also been in conmmnication with UCL..<\ ‘ s Conunittee of Black Faculty and Administrators. Colleagues representing diverse vie••points have, when informed of the matter, expressed strong agreement Hith the Department ‘s position. An interested Faculty group is making plans for litigation designed to enjoin the Univers ity Administration from pursuing the path of confronta tion on \vhich they have set foot.

On behalf of the Philosophy Dep~rtment, UCLA, I am sending you this account of the matter. Last April, Miss Angel a Yvonne Davis* was offered , and accepted, a teaching position and a summer research appointment in the Philosophy Department at UCLA, both to take effect July 1, 1963. These decisions ~r>Jere made in accordance with established University procedures. Miss Davis was furthermore assured that a continuation of her appointments for a second year would depend only on the adequate performance of her duties duri ng the first year. The UCLA Administration signed MissDavis 1 Employment Form for the teaching appointment on May 9, 1969. At the request of the Academic Personnel Office the form authorizing payment of !1iss Davis’ summer research stipend (Change in Employment Status Form) was not submitted at this time; indeed, it was not until June 20 that the Department was informed that the Change in Employment Status form should be submitted. On July 1, 1969, Yilliam Tulia Divale, a UCLA student, wrote a column in our campus paper, The Daily Bruin,trying to justify the fact that he had been working as an undercover aqent for the FBI. In the course of his column he alleged that the Philosophy Department had hired a member of the Communist Party as an Acting Assistant Professor. He did not name the person to whom he referred. On July 9, in a report by Ed ilontgomery in the San Francisco Examine~ Miss Davis was named as the person to whom the column in the Bruin had referred. However, Montgomery described her, not as a member * Miss Davis’ curriculum vitae is as follows : Gorn: January 26, 1944 1961-$3 Brandeis University, 1 1altharn, t·1assachusetts. 1963-64 The Sorbonne- Certificat de la litt{rature Francaise 1964-65 1965-67 Contemporaine. 1 Brandeis, B.A. , French Literature.

Nor wa s any substantial evidence offered for the allegations about Miss Davis. Neither article created a public stir. \Je know of no other public allegations regarding liiss Davis’ political affiliations. Yet on July 11, two days after the Examiner article appeared, The Regents of the University of California, at their regul a r meeting, instructed the Administration to determine whether Mi ss Davis is a member of the Communist Party. They directed the Administration to report its findings at their meetinq in mid-September. ~1iss Davis’ Change in Employment Status Form for her summer research appointment had not, as of July ll, been signed. To this date it remains unsigned. Certain University statutes and resolutions bear on this case, as do some recent decisions by the United States Supreme Court. l. In 1940, and again in 1949 , The Regents resolved that members hip in the Communist Party shall disqualify one from becoming a member of the Faculty of the University of California. 2. In June, 1969, The Regents adopted a Standing Order reinstating their power to pass on tenure appointments in the University. However, in the course of that Order (102.1) they also stated that “[‘~o political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee.” 3. In June also, the UCLA Academic Senate adopted, by vote of G96-151, a resolution of ‘~arning to the campus administration, faculties, departments , and concerned Senate committees not to al lm11 The Regents’ recent withdrawal of c ampus control over academic promotions and appointments at the ten ure level to result in a~y implicit or explicit selfcensorshio which permi~s the uestion of the political acceptability of candidates to intrude itself into the revie”” process.” 4. The Suprerne Court, in the case of ~evishian v. Board of Regents, 385 U.S . 5i’:9 (1 ‘)(, 7), struck dovm ~! w Yor 1( stat-:Jte s that made membership in the Communist ?arty und~ for disqualifyi~g one from teaching .in a· public instit~tion– n t~is i~sta·n~e,the State u·niversity of i1lew York at 8u f falo.Relying 6n the Keyi~hia~ and other decision s , the £ali f ornia . . . . . -3- Supreme Court, in Vogel v.

These court decisions appear to establish the legal impropriety of disqualifying anyone from university employment on grounds of membership in the Communist Party, or any other political organization. iloreover, The Regents’ Standinq Order 102.1 can be construed as superseding earlier Regental resolutions prohibiting the emrloyment of Communists. Yet by their actions The Re0ents have set foot on a path I’Jhich leads to a violation of i:iss Davis’ ri:~hts, to a disre0ard of the courts’ rulings, and to a confrontation between themselves and a major portion of the University’s faculty. Up to August 20th, despite many meetings and communications betlrJeen members Of the Philosophy Department and the Chancellor, it was not certain whether the Administration would sign !iiss Davis’ Change ln Employment Status Form. But on the afternoon of the 20th, after meetinq with representatives of The Regents, the Chancellor informed the Philosophy Department tht:Jt he had “been directed by The Regents (by their interpretation of thP. i r action of Ju 1 y 1 1) to take ;Q”” steps affect i nq the er.lf.Jioyment status of f1iss /\nqela navis pendinq further action by The Reqents following their receipt of the information which they instructerl the Administration to obtain concernin(J the appropriatene ss of r1er employment under the terms of the Re1ental policy barrinq appointment of members of the Cor7lmun is t ?arty.:’ In a letter dated A0gust 26, 19(9, the Chancellor re~eated that he had been directed by The Regents to take no further steps affecting the employment status of iiiss fJavis.

Miss Davis, however, no longer letter was returned undelivered I, as the Chairman of the Philosophy Depar tment, have throughout urged that Miss Davis should not be questioned regarding her alleged membership in the Communist Party. I have throughout also taken the position that the summer research employment represents a valid University obligation , and that the Change in Employment Status Form ought to be signed without delay. These positions were affirmed on August 22, 1969, in a re so lution (full text attached) passed by unanimous vote of those active members of the Department who wer e then in los Angeles. In the same resolution the Department also declared that it will not cooperate with any inquiry into Miss Davis’ political affiliations, or any further r·eview of her qualifications otherwise than in accordance with normal University procedures. ‘1e mean to adhere both to orderly procedure and to established la•v, despite higher official actions that go contrary to both. Members of the Committees on Academic Freedom and on Privilege and Tenure of the los Angeles Division of the Academic Senate, and officers of the American Association of University Professors, have been fully informed of these events. Si.nce Montgomery, in the Examiner article, alleged that Miss Davis is a member of the 8lack Panthers , members of the Department have also been in communication with UCLA’s Committee of Black Faculty and Administrators. Colleague s representing diverse viewpoints have, when informed of the matter, ex~ressed strong agreement with the Department’s position. An interested faculty group is making plans for litigation designed to enjoin the University Administration from pursuing the path of confrontation on which it has set foot. :._:… . I V .. , L ·”‘ V>· ‘\… ~· – .. , Donald Kalish, Chairman for the Department of Philosophy, UCLA RESOLUTION OF THE DCPARTMENT OF PHILOSOPHY, AUGUST 22, 1969 Miss Angela Davis was offered a teaching position and a special summer research appointment, both to take effect July l, 1969. These actions were taken after full review and confirmation by appropriate agencies in accordance wi th established University procedures. Mi ss Davis v1as furthermore assured that a cant i nuat ion of her appointments for a second year would be contingent only on the adequate performance of her duties during the first year. He therefore urge that the University’s contractual obligations be honored without further delay. Moreover, we can see no good reason why further review of Miss Davis’ qualifications need be made at this time. In particular , vve oppose an d will not cooperate with ef~orts to secure any information that pertains to Mi ss Davis’ politi cal affiliations, nor will we cooperate with any effort to review ~iss Davis’ qu alificati ons otherwise than in accordance with normal Univers ity procedures. Any political i nq uiry would damage the very bas is on which a great university must rise ; would violate fi rst amendment protections recently affirmed by the Supreme Court (in the cas e of Keyishian vs. Board of Regents, 1967); and would be ah solutely incomp~tible with the Regents’ Standing Order 102.1, passed earlier this year , which fla tly states that “~lo politi cal test shall ever be considered in the appointment and oromotion of an y faculty member or employee ‘ 1 • The Soviet Union has imposed political tests on many of its most creative individuals. It is sad that a compara bly illicit use of pmver to impose a test of political conformity must be resisted he re on the Los Angeles campus of the Unive rsity of California.

TO : FROM: 4 September 1969 LOWELL PAIGE, CHAIRMAN ACADEMIC SENATE PETER THORSLEV, CHAIRMAN COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC FREEDOM The Academic Freedom Committee has been requested by members of the Department of Philosophy and by yourseif to investigate and report to the Senate: (1) on the possible infringement of academic freedom involved in the Administration’s refusal to sign the final papers for the summer appointment of Miss Angela Davis in the Department of Philosophy; (2) on the general isst•e of whether or not the Regents Resolutions of . l940 ·and 1949, which the Regents invoked in this c~se in spite of their seeming inconsistency with the Standing Order of April, 1969, are consonant with the principles of academic freedom. First, as to the particular case of the appointment of ~1iss Davis: it is evident to the Committee that the Department and the Administration acted in perfect good faith and in accordance with proper academic procedures in the negotiation and signing of the contract for Miss Davis’ appointment as Acting Assistant Professor. The question of her alleged political affiliat1ons was never raised, and even had it been, it would have been irrelevant on the general ground s of academic freedom, especially in view of the reaffirmation of these principles in Standing Order 102.1, which states that “no political test shall ever be considered in the appointment or promotion of any faculty member or employee.” Therefore, the Committee deems it both immoral and illegal for the administration, on direction of the Regents, to withhold Miss Davis’ summer fellowship, which was understood by both parties, from the first, to be a condition of employment–an understanding expressed both orally and in writing by the Department and by the Administration. On the more general issue of academic appointments and confessed or covert political affiliations: the Committee holds that any action in compliance with the Resolutions of 1940 and 1949 is inconsistent with the principles of academic freedom, and that these Resolutions should therefore be disavowed. Similar rules and regulations which make membership in the Communist Party in itse lf sufficient grounds for exclusion from University faculties have been declared unconstitutional in the courts, and have been repudiated by Academic Senates, most recently by the Los Angeles Division in the R~solution passed in June , 1969. -2- The only argument for such rules which might seem on the face of it to have any merit is that some political affiliations can perhaps be used as evidence that the appointee is committed to party dogma and to prejudged conclusions which might frustrate free and impartial inquiry. This is not really a matter of political affiliation, but of the qualities of mind-openness and impartiality of the prospective appointee, and such qualities are certainly legitimate considerations in matters of academic appointments . On this point, however , the Committee maintains that such attr ibute s s hould be judged on the basis of the appointee’s past academic performance rat her than on the basis of his affiliations. To investigate into or use personal political commitments or beliefs for the purposes of academic appointment is repugnant to the basic principles of a free university. An instructor’s academic performance is a matter of public record, and it is surely on the basis of his public record that he should be judged. This Committee will therefore move the following resolutions before the next meeting of the Academic Senate : That the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division, request the Administration to sign the final papers for Miss Davis’ appointment without further delay, and to withdraw the letter asking her to disclose her political affiliations. That the Academic Senate request that the Regents rescind those Resolutions of 1940 and 1949 which make political affiliation a consideration in academic employment. September 8, 1969 To: Facu 1 ty 1″1embers From: Lowell J. Paige, Chairman Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division The faculty members of the Department of Philosophy have requested that the Division distribute the enclosed letter to all members of the Academic Senate. You will also find enclosed a staten~nt by the Committee on Academic Freedom on this matter. 1 would also like to inform all Senate members that Professor Eugene Stern has resigned as Vice Chairman of the Senate effective September, 1969. The By-LavJs of the Senate require a special election to be held within two months in order to provide for a replacement . Hence, I am request i ng the Secretary to proceed with a special election of a Vice Chairman as soon as possible.

I.n. response to questions~ Professor. ‘I’hor.slev repm:ted that the fact of Professor llavis’ a.ffirmative l.’eply to the Chancellor’s inqui.ry had been told to him by Vice-Chancellor Saxon by way of for.e -,-larning that we wet'”e on a 11collision course” Hith the Regents. 4. Professor Lat:tes ra:tsed questions which were then discussed, concerning the nature of the authority ‘”hich the Rege.1:ots hold in this matter . Included in r:he discussion was the nature of r.he:ix authority over the Chancellor on such questtous. 2 5. It wae unanimously agreed that knowledge of the contents of the reply did not affect our view of the issues in question nor would it affect the views of those faculty members with whom we were acquainted. 6o Professor Hobbs remarked that the r~ply seemed to make moot the call, in the first p£oposed resolution of the Academic Freedom Committee~ for the Administration to withdraw their inquiry, and that nome segments of the facultyp who \.Jere reluctant to direct their censure at the local administration, would welcome this facto 7o Professor Narat and others reported that the fact that no faculty suit had been brought challenging the Regental regulation on Communist Party membership reflected. no lack of commitment en the part of interested faculty members ; but resulted from practical difficulties involved in finding a suitable law firm to handle the case. There are a number of different legal roles our group might adopt, e.g. to jo±n with Professor Davis either as plaintiffs or Amicus Curiae in case she should file suit, or proceed in accordance with earlier plans to file suit independently …. It was generally agreed that at this stage we should not lay detailed legal plans but should 8’\<7ait the action of the Regents and the response of :Professor Davis and her attorney. B. Knowledgable sources are repcn:ted to expect that the Regents will be convinced by the legal opinions they receive that the Pa·rty resolutions are constitutionally invalid, but that they will not allow this to affect their actions. 9.

It must decide whether to ftre Angela Davis, a young Negro philosophy professor at UC~A who is a ·member of the Commumst Party . The regents have a policy against hiring Communists. It ~as _ne_ver been tested in court, but 111 stmtlar cases in other states the U.S. Supreme Court has decl~re~ such policies and laws unconstltutwnal. The dangers of the Angela Davis case are magnified by the fact that she is a militant black who has strong support from black students and faculty members at UCLA, Case Widely’ Discussed The case has been widely discussed ‘ within the university in recent weeks. However, it was not general knowledge until Robert Singleton, director of the AfroAmerican Studies Center at UCLA, stood up in a regents’ committee meeting at the UC Extension Center here Thursday afternoon and asked permission to discuss the Davis case. Singleton was refused permission to speak, but he then held a corridor news conference in which he accused the regents of “a paternalistic effort to prescribe for the black community a political litmus test. n The regents will decide Miss Davis’ fate at a closed door meeting today. It is considered probable that they will fire the young professor even though they know their 1949 policy against hiring Communists is no~ likely to hold up in court. “We just couldn’t stand the heat of being called ‘soft on communism,”‘ one board member said in explaining the regents’ probal;>le course of action. UCLA Chancellor Char 1 e s E. Young has warned that the dismissal of Angela Davis will cause a row “that will make the loyalty oath fight look like a Sunday School picnic.” Chancellor William J. McGill of UC San Diego said the firing would “cause a great deal of trouble throughout the university and nationally as well.” ‘Constrained by Policy’ On Aug. 26 Young, acting at the direction of the Board of Regents, wrote Miss Davis a letter that contained this sentence: “I am constrained by regental policy to request that you inform me whether or not you are a member of the Communist Party.” . On Sept. 5, Miss Davis, hired hy t h e philosophy department I a s t spring to teach such courses as dialectical materialism and existentialism, replied: ” … It would seem plain that you ara without authority to require answers concerning mere membership in the Communist Party or to deprive me of employment on such grounds. “However, and without waiving Please Turn to Page 18, Col. 1 . { .4§ Part 1-Fri., Sept. 19, 1969 JLo ~ .anatlr~ ~tntN 3* REGENTS ISSUE onti nued from First Page “a white obses~ion-it’s ·,, . . not r e 1 eva n t to black P.IY obJeCtiOns to the que~- people.” /tton posed, my answer l S Ed M a d d o x, another :that I am now a _member BSU member said blacks f the Commumst Par- will consider’ the Angela i1; II ‘· Y · · : , . . . ·- Davis case “a threat to ~.

Miss Davis, who is black, announced that she will ask for a hearing by a faculty committee on ·the dismissal decision made by the UC Board of Regents last Friday. She will retain her office and salary at UCLA pending the hearing. She added that she plans no court action challenging the constitutionali ty of the planned dismissal until after the hearing. Breaking her public silence in a news conference anrl a series of interviews, the 2.)-year-old Miss Davis sairl her role in the “struggle for black liberation” had marked her as a special target for the regents. She accused them of “fascist encroachments” on her rights. The young professor irlentified herself as a member of the CheLumumba Club, an all-black collec- tive of the Communist Party of Southern California. She adderl she was formerly active in the Black Panther Party. Milder Than Colleague Miss Davis did not go as far on the racism charge as Robert Singleton, acting director of the Afro-American Studies Center at UCLA, who joined her at the news conference. Singleton, after declaring that “racism is the overriding issue in this case” and that Miss Davis’ dis.missal is being prompted by “her affiliation with militant black organizations,” added: “It can be documented that there are white Communists teaching at the university who are not being harassed as she is being harassed ll0\V. 11 Asked, however, to document his statement, Singleton declined, telling his questioner, “What would happen if I did document it, you and I both know.” A high UCLA administrative source commented later that any implication that known white ComAngela Davis Ttmes bhoto munists are being allowed to teach at the university is false. “I know of no member of the Co m m u n is t Party employed at UCLA with the exception of Angela Davis,” the administrator said. In a 35-minute interview after the news conference, Miss Davis said at some points that her black militant activities had a lot to do with her dismissal. However, at another point she speculated that if she had been willing to conceal her Communist Party membership, the regents would not have taken action against her. Miss Davis supported Singleton’s statement about other Communists teaching at the university and said there was a tacit “right to remain obscure” recognized by university authorities. “That’s nonsense,” the UCLA administrator commented later. Miss Davis was accompanied during the interview by a young black woman identifying herself as Kendra Alexander who said she was in charge of youth work in the Southland for the Communist Party. Just before the interview, Miss Davis was asked if she could be seen alone. She had not had time to respond when a man who did · not identify himself insisted that at least one of his group of four persons sit in on the interview. The man explained that “we’re a)l in this together” and said it would Please Turn to Page 30, Col. 1 … “-<::::” ,,, … n —~- … \!/ _ __ .__,. _ 30 t:o~ ~ngtlts ~tntts a Part 1-Wed., Sept. 24, 1969 Firin~ Effort in UCLA Case Called Racist Continued from Third Page be better if Miss Davis did not s p e a k a 1 o n e. She agreed. Mrs. Alexander and Miss Da vis said that their CheL u m u m b a Communist ·outh group was “very intensely involved in all le1·els of b lack activity” in Los Angeles. They did not elaborate. Miss Davis, who had acknowledged m ember – ship in the Communist Party in a letter to UCLA Chancellor C h a r I e s E. Young on Sept. 5, said in the interview that she had belonged to t h e p a r t y about a year and a half. During that time, she has gradually eased out of her activities in the Bla ck Panthers in Los Angeles and San Diego, she said. 1\1 ii’s Davis said sbe had believed in Ma’rx i sm long !1efore joining the party. Her interest in it rlates to her days as a child in Birmingham, Ala., when she was friendly with many other chi 1 d r en whose parents were in the Communist Party, she said. In the course of the Inter view, Miss Davis denied a report published in the San Franrisro Examiner that she was a member of the Students for a Democratic Society. She said she did not ·believe many black people were active in the SDS. Miss Davis said that no one had asked her and she saw no reason to volunteer mention of her Communist Party membership when she was recruited for a two-year, non-tenure appointment on the UCLA fa culty last spring. She insisterl that he- ~onging to the party would m no way imoair her ability to teach in an unhiased manner. At Tuesday’s news con- ference, it was made clear that the Angela Davis case will be a major issue at UCLA for a long time and will afford militant groups a frequent chance to be heard. Lone Delay Seen The hea,ring p r o c e s s which now begins is likely to delay matters more than ‘a month, and there is the prospect of lengthy litigation in the courts after that. Appearing with Singleton and Miss Davis at the news conference was Prof. David Kaplan. a sistant chairman of the philosophy department. and tem- porar~· hear! of an ad hoc committee formed on campus to fight Miss Davis’ ouster. Kaplan r! e I i v ere d a stat e m en t which was mainly a defense of academic freedom in the case. Bu t most of the attention at the news conference was focu sed on Singleton and Miss Davis. In her prep a red state- ment, Miss Davis said “The regents seem intent on metin!( out punish- ments which <‘oncur with the fascist tendencies of the times … “Let there he no r!ouht -my stanr! is forthri g ht,” Miss Davi s’ statement continued. “:\s a black wo- man, my politics anr! political affiliatinn are bound up with and flow from par,t~cipation in my people s struggle for liberation, and with the fight of oppressed people all over the worlrl a!(ainst Ameri- can imperialil;m. “The Fasrist encroachments of boarrls of re- ¥€’nts. governors and presIrlents upon the . rights guaranteed bv the Consti – tution of the t Jniter!

Amo ng those app lauding was Prof. Donald Kalish. the Philosophy Department chairman who was chiefly involved in hiring her.

It urged that the regents rescind their ac- tion orrlering the dismissal of Miss Davis anrl descriherl the artion as “un- DO\ deniably racist.” SHOP .. > j e Reagan and Regent Deny Race Is Issue in UCLA Firing Case Gov. Reagan and the chairman of the UC Board of Regents both denied Wednesday that the dismissal order of a Negro UCLA professor · had anything to do with her race. Angela Davis, 25, was ordered dismissed as an assistant professor of philosophy after she admitted her membership in the Communist Partv Sl{e. claimed at a news conference Tuesday that rac:ism had as much to do with her ouster as communism. Reagan told newsmen before a meeting of the State College Board of Trustees here that the action of the UC Regents in recommending that Miss Davis be fired was based solely on her membership in the Communist Party. He said such membership violated rules of the university approved by the faculty senate. “\Ve could back down and change the policy, or we have to obey the rules,” Reagan said. In Berkeley, DeWitt A. Higg~. chairman of the regents, issued a statement saying ”it is absolutely m1true that the regents’ action was related to race in any form or manner.” He quoted from the resolution adopted by the regents conceming Miss Davis as saying that “no member of the Communist Party shall be employe.d by the university.” He said Miss Davis had informed the university in writing that she was a member of the party.

The Case of Angela Davis ISSUE: Will ‘this obvious Communist. effort . to provoke disruption get the public and · , llniversity support it needs to succeed? What smells unmistakably like a carefully contrived plot aimed at provoking _new tensions between the university and . the public is now unfolding at UCLA in the . case of Angela Davis, the admitted ‘ Communist Party member and philosophy “teacher. How successful this shrewd but transparent effort at confrontation politics will be depends to a great extent on the political sophistication and calm good sense of the UCLA com;nunity, the University of California Regents, and the geheral public. · If reason and perception on the part of all these concerned groups prevail, then the revolutionaries who are stage-managing the Davis case will be defeated. But if emotions are permitted to become dominant and dictate responses, ther.. the purposes of the Communists and their allies will be served. The facts in the Davis casd can be related briefly. Miss Davis, who apparently has proper academic qualifications, was hired last spring to teach in the UCLA philosophy department. In June word began to circulate that she is a Communist Party -inember, a fact now freely acknowledged. – Jn view of later developments it can be ·safely inferred that neither Miss Davis nor her supporters were at all unhappy -that this information became known. _ . Since 1940 a university regulation has ;_prohibited the employment of Communist . Party members. Given the well-orchestrated publicity about Miss Davis’ membership, and on the basis of that rule, the Regents voted to fire her . Miss Davis says through her attorney that she will fight the regulation through the courts. That is her right. But the Davis affair quite clearly is intended to be far more than a test case of the university’s ban on hiring Communists . What is involved instead is an attempt to enlist energies and emotions in a cause whose real purpose is the disruption of the university and, .as the New Leftists put it, the “radicalization of the masses.” This is to be achieved by placing UCLA between the hammer. of a public opinion angered by the employment of a rnilitant Communist and the anvil of faculty-student-liberal alarm over a supposed assault on the university by reactionary forces. All that became evident when Miss Davis and her supporters charged this week that her firing is due to “racism” (Miss Davis is a Negro) and “fascism” on ~:1e part of the Regents. That there is no basis in fact for these cheap allegations matters little. The point is that in the university context they are highly evocative words. Their use is meant to convey the impression that Miss Davis -is a victim of ugly persecution, deserving of sympathy and support from all right-thinking persons. Or so at least the revolutionaries hope. · The Davis case, in fact, smacks of being a set-up from beginning to end, engineered by Communists and their sympathizers, and involving a predictable effort to pola rize opinion and incite disruption by confusing the real issue h phony charges. The aim can be achieved only if the Communists get the unwitting cooperation of others. That is a point conservatives and liberals alike, among the public and within the university community, must keep in mind.

After receiving this information, the Philosophy Department of UCLA obtained letters of reference covering every part of Professor Uavis’ educational experience, and supplemented these letters by a personal interview with her on the UCLA campus. iJO mention of Professor Davis’ political affil iation was made in any of the letters of reference received. i~o question concerning her political affiliation was raised lJy any memuer of the Department in communications wi th her or in discussions of her appointment; nor did any information whatsoever, even by rumor, concerning Professor lJavis’ political affi I iation come to the attention of the Department unti 1 three months after the initial offer of .iarch 24. It is, and in the memory of current members has alvJays l>een, the policy of the Philosophy Oepartment of UCLA to consider political affiliation completely irrelevant to a candidate’s qualifications for appointment. On July I, 1~69, William Divale, an unde rcover agent for the FOI, asserted in a column of the UCLA Dai.J_y _Gruin that the UCLA Phi Josophy Department 11 has recently made a two-year appointment of an acting ass istant professor. The person is \·Jell qualified for the post, and is also a memLer of the Communist Party.’· The person was not named. On July :;), a San Francisco Examiner article named Professor Davis as the person referred to in the- Bru-in-cofumn-~ and at Jeaed that she v1as a ‘kno~rm .:aoist, accord ing to U.S. intell igcnce reports, and active in the SDS and the Clack Panthers …. ” It was in these two articles that the Philosophy Department first heard any mention of Professor uavis’ political affiliation. i~eith er art icle was given further notice in the news media, and neither created any stir in the general public. The Department made no attempt at this or any later time to determine Professor Uavis’ political affiliation . At some point prior to July JG, either at their meeting of July 11 or possiLly earlier, The negents of the University of California directed the UCLA Chancellor’s Office to determine \·Jhether Professor IJavis was a mer •. ber of the Communist Party, and not to sign any contracts with her pending receipt of this informat ion. On July IG a letter was sent to Professor f’avis from the r.h ‘!nc~llor’s office \1/hich r~ferred to the tHo newspc:mer articles mentioned ;,how~, Anrl ‘”hich rer~rt, in f>!’lrt: ‘ I am constrained Ly Reqentr~l policy to request that you infor’1 me ,,,hether or not you are a MP-rn.her of the Communist Pc;rty.·’ f>rofessor !’\avis \Alas .::~s ~ed to renly hy July 2;,.

Professor ~avis no lonryer resided at the Ad~ress to v.,hich the Jetter 111as sent and she …… as not in Los ”ml”leles c:~t the tir:1e. 3 The letter to Professor Davis initiated a series of urgent communications between the Philosophy Department, the Chancellor, and members of his staff. In a Jetter of July 28 the Department urged Vice Chancellor Saxon to sign Professor Davis’ Change in Employment Form granting her summer salary supplement. As grounds for its request, the Department referred to Standing Order of The Regents 102.1 (June 30, 1969), which states, in part: ”No political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee,” and also to Proposition B recently adopted by the UCLA Academic Senate (June 2, 1969), which warns all campus agencies to avoid “any implicit or explicit self-censorship which permits the question of the political acceptability of candidates to intrude itself into the review process.” On July 28 the Department also informed the chairman of the UCLA Committee on Academic Freedom and the chairman of the UCLA Chapter of the American Association of University Professors, of the issue that had arisen. The Department also solicited from Professor K. L. Karst of the UCLA School of Law a legal memorandum which was received on August 4 (the memorandum is reprinted in the Call of the Emergency Academic Senate meeting of October 1, 1969). This memorandum was made available to the Chancellor’s office. The Department was careful to release information concerning the problem only to the above mentioned committees and to selected members of the UCLA Faculty and Administration, in the hope that the problem could be settled in Professor Davis’ favor without becoming a damaging public issue. During this period the Department was informed that the legal counsel of the Regents had informed them that their 1940 and 1949 resolutions barring employment of members of the Communist Party were constitutionally invalid, but that some Regents were nevertheless determined to seek a judicial ruling on those resolutions by taking some action concerning Professor Davis. Concern over failure to sign the Change in Employment Form granting Professor Davis her summer salary supplement was e;~pressed to Vice Chancellor Saxon on August 7 by the Chairman of the AAUP Chapter, on August 11 by the Chairman of the Committee on Academic Freedom, and at other times during this period by other Senate officials. On August 12, the Chairman of the Philosophy Department sent to the Chancellor’s Office a letter which reads, in part: “if our campus community is divided, our cause is lost. Someho1·1, find a rationale for signing the Change of Employment Status and a means for having the letter concerning political affiliation, if it must be sent, come from some office other than that of the UCLA Administration.” 4 On August 20, after meeting with representatives of the Regents, Chancellor Young informed the Philosophy Department that he had 11 been directed by The Regents (by their interpretation of their action of July 11, 1969), to take no steps affecting the employment status of Miss Angela Davis pending further action by The Regents foli~Jing their receipt of the information which they instructed the Administration to obtain concerning the appropriateness of her employment under the terms of the Regental policy barring appointment of members of the Communist Party . 11 On August 22 the Philosophy Department adopted and sent to the Chancellor a resolution which states, in part: 11He oppose and \•Ji 11 not cooperate with efforts to secure any information that pertains to t·1iss Davis• political affiliations, nor will we cooperate with any effort to review Miss Davis 1 qualifications otherwise than in accordance with normal University procedures.•• The resolution also urged that 11 the University•s contractual obligations [to Professor Davis] be honored without further de Jay.•• On August 26 the Chancellor•s office again sent to Professor Davis the letter of July 16 asking about membership in the Communist Party. A Department fact sheet (dated August 27) together with the Department resolution of August 22 were distributed to the entire UCLA Faculty on September 8. Distributed in the same packet was a report from the UCLA Committee on Academic Freedom (dated September 4) stating, in part: 11 it is evident to the Committee that the Department and the Administration acted in perfect good faith and in .accordance with the proper academic procedures in the negotiation and signing of the contract for Miss Davis• appointment as Acting Assistant Professor. The question of alleged politica l affiliations was never raised, and even had it been, it would have been irrelevant on the general grounds of academic freedom ..•• Therefore the Committee deems it both immoral and illegal for the administration, on direction of the Regents, to withhold ~1iss Davis’ summer fellowship .•.• •• On September 5 Professor Davis responded to the letter asking about membership in the Communist Party. Her letter states, in part: 11At the outset Jet me say that I think the question posed … is impermissable. This, on grounds of constitutional freedom as well as academic policy . … However, and without waiving my objections to the question posed, my answer is that I am now a member of the Communist Party. t4hile I think this membership requires no justification here, I want you to know that 5 as a ~ 1 ack ~ :o.:tan I feel an urgent need to f i nu radical solutions to the pror.,J e1.1S of racial and national r1inorities in l·!hite canit<‘ll ist ti:JitP.d r:tatec;. ! feel th-=1t nv le!’lhershin in the f:nr:trunist “~arty has uidenerl rw horizons tmrl exn?ncl.:~d mt onnortunities for 11erceivin ~ such solutions ?ncf 1·1or~dn., for thP-ir effectuation.

Academic freedom is not a license for irresponsible behavior. The academic profession has its own code of professional ethics, and one which is quite demanding. A primary responsibility of faculty members is intellectual honesty–to seek and state the truth as one sees it, free from the hypocrisy of compromise with external pressures. A special responsibility of teachers is to encourage the free pursuit of learning–not to indoctrinate but to provide for discussion and questioning, to refer to alternative views. Among the most important requirements is to discuss candidly one’s own special perspectives. A third responsibility of academics is to show a decent respect for the opinions of others. In each of these regards, Professor Davis has given evidence that she is a responsible teacher and faculty member. In her honest response to the Regents, she has proven that she has the courage of her convictions. She has publicly expressed her desire for critical discussion with students. Indeed, as between Professor Davis, who openly proclaims an unpopular view, and the Regents, who would suppress its exposition, it should be clear who are the supporters of indoctrination. Moreover, no one has accused Professor Davis of intolerance for opinions with which she does not agree. She was appointed to her teaching position through regular University procedures by those best able to judge her qualifications. In fact, the Regents did not challenge her academic competence or responsibility, but cited her membership in the Communist Party as their sole ground for firing her. • DON’T ALL COMMUNISTS HAVE RIGID, CLOSED MINDS? Even friends of the free, open university sometimes will accept a ban on Communists without raising any objections. They reason that anyone who could join the Communist Party must be so closed-minded, so controlled by others, that he could not meet the responsibilities of a university position. Now surely, we all agree with the aim of keeping doctrinaire, unthinking people from teaching in our universities. If there is ample evidence that a certain Communist has this sort of rigid mind, then he (or she) ought to be prevented from teaching. The same is true, of course, for closed-minded Democrats, Republicans, Protestants, Catholics, or whatever. No one, however, should be judged as fit or unfit to teach simply by the group he identifies with. It is central to our democratic values that each individual should be judged on his own merits, not by his associations. If there arc doubts about Angela Davis’s intellectual ability or integrity, let them be directed to the proper subject , Professor Davis, herself. Whatever her affiliations and ideals, she remains an individual with the same human rights as anyone else. • AREN’T COMMUNISTS HOSTILE TO BASIC AMERICAN INSTITUTIONS? According to a recent LOS ANGELES TIMES report, some Regents have raised this objection quite explicitly. Why, they ask, should taxpayers in a democratic, capitalistic society pay the salaries of teachers who want to change that system? There is no doubt that many of our institutions and policies in the United States are rejected by the Communist Party and by most party members. The question, then, is whether this is sufficient grounds for excluding them from positions in our universities. Consider first the fairly simple case of a Communist Party member who teaches subjects (or does other jobs) completely unrelated to his ideological beliefs. For example, he is a dish-washer or a professor of mathematics. Here, surely, each person should be treated according to his merits. If the person is engaged, on the side, in criminal activities, then he should be accused of THAT. There is no need to consider his party membership. Now suppose the Communist teaches subjects, such as Philosophy, in which Marxism is an appropriate topic of discussion. Here, again, there is no reason to exclude the Communist, provided he meets the standards of academic competence and responsibility. If he does not, then let him be barred on those grounds and not because he is a Communist. No doubt even the most responsible Communists will interpret history and philosophy from a perspective different in some degree from ours. In fact, no one, whatever his political views, completely succeeds in escaping the limitations of his intellectual framework and in freeing himself from biases. In a university, however, progress towards achieving truth and correcting errors is made not solely by individual efforts but also by the cancellation of prejudices in open, respectful exchange of opinion. Moreover, anyone who supposes that a university professor today could indoctrinate his students does not have a realistic picture of what university students and classes are like. A professor who tried to foist a package of dogmas upon his class is likely to be hooted off the podium. And rightly so. We do not need faculties of single-minded professors, and we cannot afford to graduate a generation of students unprepared to cope with ideas that challenge their basic beliefs. We do need to encourage autonomous, thinking citizens and leaders, who know what Communism is, what Communist Party members advocate, and why. It is hard to see how banning all Communist Party members frvm the University can help in this task. • • • • • • THE TRUTH ABOUT ANGELA DAVIS WHO IS ANGELA DAVIS? Angela Davis isayoungblackwoman hired by the Department of Philosophy at UCLA in a two-year, non-tenured position. The counes she will teach include Nineteenth Century Philosophy, Dialectical Matenalism, and Philosophical Themes in Black Literature. Miss Davis graduated magna cum laude from Brandeis University in 1965. She studied at the Sorbonne in 1963·64, recaiving a Certificat de Ia Literature Francaise Contemporaine. From 1965 to 1967, she studied at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Universitet in Frankfurt, Germany. She is currently finishing work on her Ph.D. dissertation on German Idealism under the supervision of Professor Herbert Marcuse at the University of California, San Diego. The hiring of Miss Davis was initiated by the Department of Philosophy after an investigation of Miss Davis’ scholarly and pedagogical qualifications, which included a personal interview. The Department neither had nor sought information about Miss Davis’ political affiliations. Subsequent to being hired at UCLA, a report in the UCLA DAILY BRUIN stated that a new member of the Philosophy Department was a membar of the Communist Party. Later, the SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER identified the subject of the BRUIN article as Miss Davis. In a reply to a letter from Chancellor Charles Young of UCLA asking if she was a member, Miss Davis stated, “It would seem plain that you are without authority to require answers concerning mere membership in the Communist Party or to deprive me of employment on such grounds … However, and without waiving my objections to the question posed, my answer is that I am now a member of the Communist Party.” ISN’T IT ILLEGAL FOR A COMMUNIST TO TEACH AT A PUBLIC UNIVERSITY? Laws have been made ·in various states, and resolutions passed by various Boards of Regents, including the UC Board of Regents in 1949, proscribing the hiring of Communists. However, the United States Supreme Court, in the case of KEYISHIAN vs. BOARD OF REGENTS, 285 U.S. 589 (1967), struck down New York statutes that made membership in the Communist Party grounds for disqualification for teaching in a public institution. The UC Board of Regents, in June 1969, adopted a standing order that states “No political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee.” HOW CAN THE REGENTS IGNORE MISS DAVIS’ CONTRACT? Professor Davis has a valid and binding contract with the University of California. The Regents have not charged that she has failed to discharge her contractual obligations. However, by ordering that her salary not be paid, the Regents can force he~ to go to the courts to collect what is rightfully owed her. ISN’T THERE ANY WAY THE REGENTS CAN FIRE THOSE WHO ARE UNFIT TO TEACH? There would be no constitutional block to firing a faculty member if the charges that the Governor and Regents have suggested-but not explicitly 011de-could be proven of that faculty member. The abuse of the classroom for purposes of indoctrination or intellectual coercion, is an example of one such charge. But there is no evidence that any such charge could be rightfully lodged against Miss Davis. The Department of Philosophy at UCLA-a department with an international reputation for rigorous intellectual standards in teaching and scholarship-initiated the hiring of Miss Davis only after a thorough examination of her qualifications as a teacher and scholar. ARE RADICAL AND COMMUNIST POINTS OF VIEW THE ONLY ONES OFFERED BY THE PHILOSOPHY DEPARTMENT AT UCLA? The Philosophy Department at UCLA will include in any given year persons with a wide variety of philosophical and political positions. For example, the Department chose for its prestigious Flint Professorship in 1968-69, Professor Freidrich von Hayek, the author of THE ROAD TO SERFDOM, and the world’s foremost philosophical champion of political conservatism. ISN’T MISS DAVIS SUPPORTED ONLY BY THE RADICALS AT UCLA? In a vigorous university, deep differences of opinion are commonplace. But the attempt to dismiss Professor Davis has received an almost unanimous condemnation from all elements of the UCLA community, including many distinguished faculty members with moderate and conservative political views. THE LOS ANGELES TIMES CHARGED IN AN EDITORIAL THAT THE HIRING OF MISS DAVIS AND THE SUBSEQUENT DISCLOSURE OF HER COMMUNIST PARTY MEMBERSHIP WAS A PLOT, STAGE-MANAGED BY COMMUNISTS, TO PROVOKE TROUBLE AT UCLA. IS THERE ANY TRUTH IN THIS? The facts of the matter as stated herein (or in the TIMES newscolumns) leave no room for a theory of conspiracy. Miss Davis’ hiring was initiated by the Philosophy Department and approved by the Administration of UCLA before any member of either group had any knowledge of Miss Davis’ political affiliation. So, it is unclear how the TIMES imagines that the Communist Party wes able to stage-011nage this appointment. The disclosure in the UCLA DAILY BRUIN of Miss Davis’ membership in the Communist Party W8S’ made by William Tulio Divale, an FBI informer. Again, it is difficult to see this as an event controlled by the Communist Party. The TIMES did not state in its editorial that Miss Davis was in any way unqualified to teach, nor did they express approval of the Regents’ action in attempting to dismiss her.

Upon the recommendation of my Advisory Committee I am extending an invitation to Acting Assistant Professors to attend the Senate meeting. Lowell J. Paige, Chairman Committee on Academic Freedom- P. Thorslev Other Resolutions Memorandum from Kenneth Karst 3. Any other business authorized by unanimous consent of the voting members present. September 25, 1969 f.1ich ael D. lntriligator, Secretary Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division 2 5 Page ·, (10/1/69) COMMITTEE ON ACADEMIC FREEDOM To the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division On the request of Chairman Lowell J. Paige, the Committee on Academic Freedom has met to consider the case of Professor Angela Davis, and has unanimously agreed upon the following report to the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division: The action of the Regents at their meeting on September 19, 1969, terminating the appointment of Professor Angela Davis, in effect imposes a pol iti cal test for appointment to the faculty of the University. The Committee believes that this action is not only in 9rave violation of principles of academic freedom and of privilege and tenure, but that it also impinges upon the individual and collective rights of all of the Faculty under the laws and constitutions of the state of California and of the United States. Gecause no great university can long survive the imposition of a political test for faculty membership, the Regents’ action also does a grave disservice to the welfare of the people of California. A. Therefore the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division: 1. Directs its Chairman to institute or to intervene in appropriate legal action on behalf of the members of the Division to seek a judicial declaration that this infringement upon our r ights of privilege and tenure and upon our constitutional rights is unlawful and void. 2. Directs the Chairman to make this resolution known to the other Divisions of the Senate and to invite their participation in the legal action we bring or intervene in. 3. Authorizes the Chairman to retain counsel on behalf of the members of the Division for purposes of the litigation contemplated; to invite all members of the Division to contribute to the expenses of litigation brought on their behalf; and to establish a suggested schedule for such contributions. B. Further, the Academic Senate, Los Ange l es Division, proposes the f ollowing Memorial to the Regents: [See Resolution I which has been unanimously endorsed by the Chairman’s Advisory Committee.] N. s. Ass a 1 i D. Kivelson A. Rosett R. Yost P. Thorslev, Chairman -1- (10/1/69) Resolution I Recent action by the Board of Regents, instituting dismissal proceedings against Professor Angela Uavis, is disqualifying members of the Communist Party from membership in the University faculty. i·!o illegal conduct is charged; the only gro!.Jnd for the dismissal is membership in apolitical organization that is not illegal. Guilt in our society is an individual matter. A faculty member’s fitness to teach is to be judged by his professional qualifications and his own conduct, not the conduct of his political associates. The University simply cannot be placed in the position of screening present and prospective members of its faculty to eliminate persons who belong to a party whose positions are unpopular. The Regents, in ordering these dismissal proceedings, have asserted that their 1940 and 1~49 resolutions are supported by resolutions of the former Northern and Southern Section of the Academic Senate, adopted in 1950. These Senate resolutions, along with the Regents’ 1940 and 1S49 resolutions, have since been rendered void (because unconstitutional) by decisions of the United States Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of California. Furthermore, the Los Division has taken ser ious ly the language of Standing Order 102.1 of the Board of f~egents, that ”i~o political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee.” It “‘a s an effort to make that policy statement a reality that led this Division, last June, to adopt a resolution of “warning to the campus administration, faculties, departments, and concerned Senate committees not to allow the Regents’ recent withdrav1al of campus contro l over academic appointments at the tenure level to result in any impli cit or explicit self-censorship which permits the question of the political acceptability of candidates to intrude itself into the review process.” The most recent action of the Regents makes necessary further clarification of this Division’s position. Therefore, the Los Angeles Division of the Academic Senate resolves, (a) That lawful political affil iation, incl uding membership in the Communist Party, cannot l egitimately be made the basis for disqualification for membership in the University faculty ; (b) That any contrary impression of the Senate’s position, based on Senate resolutions of 1950, is repudiated, and the officers of this Division are instructed to take all steps necessary to secure the formal repudiation by the Statewide Academic Senate of any suggestion of support for a political disqualification for membership in the University faculty; and (c) That this Division calls upon the Regents to honor the University’s commitment to academic freedom, contained in the promise of Stand ing Order 102.1 that 1 ‘no political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee, 11 by abandoning their adherence to the discredited and unconstitutional resolutions of 19~0 and 1949.

Villarejo Political Science English Engineering Hathematics Library Po I it i ca 1 Science Physics (10/1/69) Resolution 2 Resolved, that the Los Angeles Division condemns the action of the Board of Regents instituting proceedings for the dismissal of Angela Davis from membership in this faculty on the ground that she is a member of the Communist Party, First, because these dismissal proceedings are a deliberate assault on a central principle of academic freedom that one’s fitness to be a member of the faculty is to be determined by his professional qualifications and his conduct, not by his lawful political associations ; Seco~, because these dismissal proceedings are a violation by the Regents of the United States Constitution and the Constitution of the State of California, as those Constitutions have been repeatedly interpreted by the highest courts of the State and Nation; this violation is particularly grave because it is knowing and deliberate; and Third, because these dismissal proceedings make a mockery of the Regent’s own Standing Order, adopted only three months before its recent action, forbiddin g political tests in the selection of members of the faculty. Resolved further, that this Division is dismayed and outraged at the statements attributed to some Regents that they knew the high probab ility that their action would be declared unconstitutional, but that they would not act legally until ordered to do so by a court of law. f\t a time when the Regents are calling on others in the University community to demonstrate respect for law, this official anarchy is the height of irresponsibility. The University has a contractual commitment to Angela Davis; its officers, including the Regents, are sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of California; it is time for these officers to demonstrate their respect for law.

Lowell J. Paige To: Professor David Kaplan Vice-Chairman, Department of Philosophy From: Kenneth L. Karst Re : The constitutional validity of the Regents’ resolutions of 1940 and 1~49 prohibiting the University’s employment of members of the Community Party Introduction This memorandum responds to your request of July 30, 1S69, on behalf of the Philosophy Oepartment, for an opinion on the validity of two resolutions of the Board of Regents, as those resolutions are stated on page 37 of the Handbook for Faculty Members of the University _of California: (1) The 1940 resolution is quoted in the Handbook. Its operative lan~ua9e is: 11 ••• membershir in the Communist Party is incompatible vlith membership in the faculty of a State University.” (2) The 1949 resolution is paraphrased in the Handbook as saying 1 1 that no member of the Communist Party shal l be employed by the University.” In 1969, the Regents adopted an amendment to Standing Order 102.l(a): r; l,lo political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee.” The 1969 amendment appears, on its face, to supersede both the 1940 and the 1949 policies. HovJever, the Re~ents might in the future choose to rescind their most recent declaration of policy, or to adopt an exception for the case of membership in the Communist Party. In this memorandum, I shall assume for purposes of ar~ument that the 1969 amendment makes no chan0e in the 1940 and 1949 resolutions, and that those resolutions continue to represent Regental pol icy. Sum~ary of Conclusions 1. The power to impose qualifications for employment relating to loyalty (or to membership in an organization said to be subversive) rests with the Legislature if it rests anywhere. Such a power does not rest with the Regents. Even if the Re~ents did have such power under the California Constitution, however , 11.

Submitted by llenry V. HcGee, Jr . Acting Professor of Law COMMITTEE ON EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES Resolution 8 To the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division ,Emergeny Meeting, October 1, 196~: Resolved that the follmving statement on Racial Issues and the case of Professor Angela Davis be adopted as the sense of this Division: The claim has been made by members of the black community and others that the Regents’ efforts to dismiss Professor Angela Davis have been based, at least in part, on Professor Davis’s race. Many commentators, including some Regents, have responded that the Regents’ decision would have been no different if Professo r Davis had been white, and therefore that racism is not an issue in her case. We have no desire to dispute this response in the sense of debating the motives of the Regents at the time that they made their decision; for that question–though by no means closed–seems to us to avoid more important issues. We are convinced that there do exist critical issues relating to race which are involved in the present case. For Professor Davis, and may others in the black community, political affil iation and commitment are inseparable from and a consequence of participation in the struggle for racial justice. As a result, it is readily understandable that attacks on their political affi l lations ~’1ould be difficult to distinguish from racial repression. That the inseparability of the concerns is a crucial factor in the present tense situation has been repeatedly emphasized by the black and other minority communities. It would be neither practical nor appropriate for resolve this deep and complex problem in its entirety. for the University and its future, where the potentia l ion is great. this body to attempt here to Our immediate concern must be for total and disastrous divisThe act ion of the Regents in attempting to dismiss Professor Davis clearly and critically threatens efforts mandated by this body to increase minority involvement in the University in ways relevant to both the minority communities and the University generally. One such commitment was made in the Resolution of the Los Angeles Division of January 1969, calling for major efforts to expand our minority faculty. It said, 11 1n vital areas, minority group faculty members will bring unique attributes to their posts–stemming from their very lives’ experiences, and encompassing insights Into minority group probl~ms– which would be unattainable in faculty recruited from traditional sources. The infusion of minority faculty into the university commun – i ty will foster cultural diversity; it will make available the divergent attitudes and perceptions of ethnic minorities; it will allow the University to adequately perform its crucial task of assessing contemporary values; and it vJill better enable the University to come to grips with problems generated by a history of racial discrimination in this country.” Any serious effort ,to implement this policy requires acceptance of the fact that minority candidates will, with some frequency, come with unconventional political backgrounds and views as judged from majority perspectives, Regentally imposed pol i tical tests which assault the academic freedom of all will fal 1 upon such candidates with unusual severity. If a faculty member can be fired for entertaining radically divergent views about the structure of our society and the solutions to its problems, this recruitment program will become a mockery, as will our general claims to academic integrity.

Law Prof. Kenneth L. Karst, one of the plaintiffs, said the Superior Court suit “seeks a declaration that the regents’ antiC o m m unist resolutions are unconstitutional.” The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in several cases in recent years that Communist Party membership cannot be a bar to employment unless it can · be proved that t h e p a r t y member has engaged in a specific act to overthrow .· the government by force.

Y·oung :Bows to Regents, Bans C.redit Course for Red T each:er :&Y KENNETH REICH Times Staff Writer UCLA Chancellor C h a r 1 e s E. Young Saturday bowed reluctantly to an order of the UC Board of Regents and informed the school’s philosophy department that Communist Party member Angela Davis will not be allowed to teach a course for credit in the fall term. However, Young–declaring at a news conference that in all other respects Miss Davis will be “a member of the faculty of this university”-said he expected her to show up in the classroom Monday. The 25-year-old assistant philosophy professor will be “engaging in an activity” not prohibited by the regents’ Friday order, the chancellor said. Indications were that this would Chancellor Charles E. Young llmuphoto include lecturing. A spokesman for Miss Davis said she “intends to meet her class on Monday at the slated hour and will ask the class to decide what it thinks ought to be done.” “Whether she lectures will depend on the class,” the spokesman said. “She will be prepared to lecture.” Meanwhile, Prof. Donald Kalish, the philosophy department chairman who assigned Miss Davis to teach the course in Recurring Philosophical T h e m e s in Black Literature, issued a statement refusing to recognize what he termed an illegal regental action. “It was the position of the UCLA Academic Senate in its meeting of Oct. 1 that Philosophy 99, whose instructor for the fall quarter is Prof. Angela Davis, is a duly authorized course for credit at UCLA,” Kalish said. “I support that position.” Young, however, said students going into Miss Davis’ classroom “will understand that by virtue of the regents’ action that will not be a credit course.” The resolution adopted by the regents on a vote of 14 to 6 Frid.ay at an emergency meeting in San Francisco said: “Now, therefore, be it resolved that the regents instruct the president (of the university) that during the fall quarter of 1969 Miss Davis shall be assigned no teaching duties and that she shall not be authorized to give instructions in any course under the jurisdiction of any school, department or other academic agency approved by the regents.” Although this appears to be a prohibition against teaching by Miss Davis pending regular dismissal proceedings that have been ordered aga1nst her, the regents also quietly agreed on the side not to bar noncredit lectures or other activities by her.

Mon., Oct. 6, 1969-Part I 3 Black UCLA Teachers ay ithhold Gra es Threaten Action if Reaents Don’t Grant ;;; Davis Course Credit BY WILLIAM J. DRUMMOND Times Staff Writer T\venty b 1 a c k faculty members at UCLA threatened Sunday to withhold grades in all their classes unless the UC Board of Regents restores full credit to the course taught by Angela Davis. Rohert Singleton, director of the Afro-American Studies Center at the Westwood campus, told The Times “We will not accept firstclass itizenship when one of us is forced to accept second-class status.” He said letters would he sent to all the faculty in the UC system urging them to join in the plan to withhold grades over the Davis issue. Miss Davis, a 25-year-old black philosopher, is scheduled to meet at ;3 p.m. today in a lectur e hall of the Dickson Art Ce11ter with students who siO’ned up for her course in Recurr~1g Philosophical Themes in Black Literature. Admits Communist ‘l’ies ‘l’he regents first voted to initiate dismissal procedures against Miss Davis becaus·e she admitted she belonged to the Communist Party. And when the philosophy depart- ment chairman, Donald Kalish, gave her the literature course to teach while she was going through appeals procedure, th·e regents then voted, in effect, to stnp the course of credit. Singleton said that the Angela Davis Defense Committee was formed Sept. 20 after the regents made their first ruling regarding her.

Mon., Qct. 6, 1969-:-Part I 3 __ Black UCLA Teachers May Withhold Grades Threaten Action if Regents Don’t Grant Davis Course Credit BY WILLIAM J. DRUMMOND Times Staff Writer Twenty black faculty members at UCLA threatened Sunday to withhold grades in all their classes unless the UC Board of Regents restores full credit to the course taught by Angela Davis. Robert Singleton, d i rector of the Afro-American Studies Center at the West wood campus, told The Times “We will not accept firstclass ~itizenship wh,en one of us is forced to accept second-class status.” He said letters would b-e sent to all the faculty in the UC system urging them to join in the plan to withhold grades ·over the Davis issue. Miss Davis, a 25-year-old black philosopher, is scheduled to meet at :3 p.m. today in a lectur_e hall of the Dickson Art Center wrth students who signed up for her course in Recurring Philosophical Themes in Black Literature. Admits Communist Ties The regents first voted ~o initi~te dismissal procedures agamst Miss Davis becaus·e she admitted she belonged to the Communist Party. And when the philosophy department chairman, Donald Kalish, gave her the literature course to teach while she was going through appeals procedure, the regents then voted, in effect, to strip the course of credit. Singleton said that the Angela Davis Defense Committee was formed Sept. 20 after the regents made the_ir first ruling regarding her. He said the committee represented t h reefourths of all black faculty members at UCLA. . The black faculty members decided to make a move, Singleton said . in an effort “to toss the ball back into the hands of the regents. The chancellor has not done this .. .

VOLUME No. L ~~~~BRUIN XXVIII No.2 UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES Mondoy, October 6, 1.969 Profs may challenge credit ban By Jeff Weiner DB Editoria1 Director Chancellor Charles E. Young has r eluct antly taken steps to insure that no credit be given for any course taught by Angela Davis in complying with the UC Board of Regents decision last F rid ay. In a letter to registrar William T. Puckett, Young said that “as a result of the board ‘s action, and despite my continued opposition to this action, as well as previous actions taken by the board in this matter, I am constrained to info rm you that no enrollments may be accept ed which would r esu lt in credit for any course being offered by her. ” Emergency meeting set In related d evelopments yeste rday, Academic Senate Chairman Lowell .J. Paige announced that he will call a n emergency meeting of the Academic Sena te for this week at the request of Andr ew Charwat, chairma n of the Senate’s underg raduate course committee. The sole purpose of the meeting will be to consider a resolution by the undergraduate course committee. Paige said. The committee will probably meet to draft the resolution. Paige declined to specul a te about the content of the resolution but it is evid ent that it will concern the accreditation of Philosophy 99. By their action the Regents have intruded into a n a rea that has tr a ditionall y been the exclusive domain o f facu lty committees (in this case the underDid not provoke confrontation graduate course committee) on each campus- the power to accredit courses. It appears that the faculty might challenge the Regents authority to rule in this area by ordering the r egistr a r to restore credit for the cou rse which was authorized by the proper procedures. The registrar would then be forced to choose between the o rders of the chancellor a nd those of the fac ulty. The emergency senate meeting will probably be held this Thursday, Pa ige said. In his letter to registrar Puckett, the chancellor said that except for not bei ng able to teach a course for credit , ” Professor Davis remains a r egular member of the faculty and s hould be accorded the same privileges and courtesies afforded to a ll other faculty members.” In o ther action, 35 members of the Academic Senate requested in writing a mail ballot o n a resolution passed by a voice vote at the Senate meeting of October 1. In o ther developments in the Davis case, a mail b allot has gone o ut to Sen a te members on whether the Senate will support a convocation planned for Oct. 15. Resolutio n app roved The r esolution was passed a t the last Senate meeting of Oct. 1, 178- 120. Hov.•ever, 35 Senate members (the number required) signed a pet itio n r equesting that the issue o f Senate suppo rt fo r the convocation be placed befor e all Senate members. The convocation is being sponsor ed by the Angela Davis Defense Committee which consists of the 18 faculty and staff serving as the Advisory Committee to the .AJro-America n Studies Center, according ro the “pro” a rgument a ttached to the r esolutio n o n the mail ballot. Convocation plann ed A one and a half hour meeting of the entir e camp us community is planned for 11 a.m. Oct. 15 as well as ” discussions and meetings held ·within academic units, preferably on a depa rtment·wide basis. Responsibility for initi a ting and conducting s uch prog r ams rests entirely with the faculty and students in the variO!JS academic units althoug h the Angela Davis Defense Committee is prepared to provide assistance if r epresent a tives o f the bla ck community a re r equested for panel discussions or similar programs. ” According to the ” pro” a rgument, -the con vocation is designed ; Editor …… Linda Simonds Camp u s Editor .

Miss Davis discussed her dismissal and leelured on the “Life and Times of Frederick Douglass.” She was greeted with a standing ovation. Lecture given, strike proposed Students pack Davis class By Debbie As tun DB Sjaff Writer Nearl y 2,000 s tud e nts crammed into Royce Hall’s a uditorium yesterday where Angela Davis delivered her first lecture, despite the Regent ‘s decisio n last Friday to remove credit for the class. Wearing buttons reading “on campus, for credit, as pla nned,” flown d own from Berkeley (remnants of the Eldridge Cleaver iss ue l ast year), the overflowing audience gave the 25 year o ld p rofessor a standing ovation. Although 169 students o rigina lly registered for the Philosophy 99 class, most of the crowd came to demonstrate their support fo r Miss Davis, while othe rs; present came intending to enroll for the class. Opening her lec ture with a discussion of the Regen t’s attion which he termed an “outrig ht attack on student ,” Miss Davis told students “You are be ing denied the basic right to relevant education. ” She a dded that the Regent’s decision was a lso an attack on the Afro-Americ a n Studies Center here as well as against the ·University’s a uto nomy. Hefore beginning her ledure on recurrent themes in black literature, Miss Davis spoke on freedom. She cited the example of Greece being the ” root” of democr acy with many of its citizens not being free and of Thomas Jefferson espousing the ” beauty of the Constitution” while stil l keeping slaves. Proceeding to ex plain th e relevance of black literature as providing “a more illuminating look at the concept of freedom than philosophical discourse in western society,” s he said tha t it “projects a consciousness of a people denied freedom. ” Quoting from the works of existentialist philosopher .Jean Paul Parking kiosk bombed next to Murphy Hall A fire bomb set off an explosion and fire inside the parkin g inform ation kiosk on Dickson Court between Murphy Hall and the Law Building Monday, reducing the kiosk to gray walls and ashes. The incident occurred at 2:55 Mo nd ay morning. The fire was observed almost immed iately by the officer on dut y, Thomas Stewart, an officia l University Police report said. The report added that the fire was se t by an inflammable substance with a wick container. The police have no suspects in custody at the present time. Unive rsity Police decliried to speculate as to the motive of the bombing, b ut o fficers said it was of ” ma licious intent.” “No one knows what goes through the mind S of these people,” Lt. Bill Banks sa id. ” My guess is that it was eithe r someone mentally ill or mad at the Administration, and he thou ght that was one way of g etting back.” Though there have been a number of crank calls or ” bomb calls” in recent yea rs, the incident is the first one of its kind in the memory of poliO! offii als. The penalty for the c rime is prison, o r probation, or a fine, or all three, police said. Sa rtre, she said that a slave has the liberty to reject his conditio n, even if it is a state o f captivit y versus death. Miss Davis r elated slavery from the point of view of Frederic Douglass, who as a sla ve said tl1at “the most extreme form of human alienation was the reduction of man to the state of property. ” Spea king on re ligion in relation to those oppressed, she quo te from her teacrer and famed Marxist philosopher Herbert Marcuse who said religion is ” the v·.:ishdream of an oppressed soc iety.” Alth ough s he explained tills was not an analysis of religion, she a lso quoted Karl Marx when he said religion to bethe “opium of the people.” (Continued on Page 5) Tuesday, October 7, 1969 U C professors consider withholding class grades in sympathy with Davis By Jeff Weiner DB Editorial Director Students here and at other U C campuses may walk into class one day soon and fi nd their course cr edit pulled out from under them-bu t not by the UC Board of Regents. A group of 20 faculty members fr om six UC campu ses met informa lly at the International Hotel last Sunday to discuss possible coordinated action regarding the Angela Davis case. Though no decision was reached at the meeting which was chaired by Arnold Kaufman, a philosophy professor here, it was suggested , as one possible alte rn a tive, tha t faculty members a t all UC campuses refuse to submit g r ades until credit is restored for Miss Davis’ course. SLC approves This proposed action was approved last night by Student Legislative Council (SLC) in a 6-5-2 vote, with undergraduate student body president Tom N orminton casting the d eciding vote. The SLC resolution urges a ll faculty members her e ” n ot to submit fall qu arter g r a des for the students enrolled in their classes until regular academic credit is restored to the students enrolled in Miss Davis’s class.” A sma ll number of faculty members here drafted a statement to that effec t th at will prob a bly be considered at an emergency meeting of the Academic Senate set for 3 p.m. this Thursday in Royce Hall. In any case, efforts are being made to determine the extent of support University-wide for withholding grad e cards and a decisiOn will be made b y tomorrow. The operative paragraph o f the statement drafted by the faculty members here re a ds in p art as follows: ” we hereby a nno unce our intention to refuse to submit g r ades for our students unless a nd until the students who seek to take Professor Davis’s course fo r credit, are assured of their right to d o so, and Miss .Davis is assured of her right to teach for credit. We intend to do everything possible to prevent any harm to our students. We will conduct our courses in the regul ar manner, keep careful records and be a t all times read y to make the grades available should Miss Davis be accorded the same faculty status th a t we enjoy . ” No credit for sure In other developments Registrar William T. Puckett told the Daily Bruin yesterd ay tha t “as of rig ht now there is no credit for the course (Philosophy 99). ” Puckett’s action came in response to a d irective from Chancellor Cha rl es E. Young that ” no enrollments may be accepted which would result in credit for any cou rse being offered” by Angela Davis. The registrar also received yesterday a letter from the Academic Sena te’s undergraduate course committee reminding him th a t the course committee has the delegated a uthority to a uthorize and accredit all regular courSes upon approval of the de-. partment chairman and the dean of the division concerned and tha t philosophy 99 was so approved. There was never any doub t in Puckett’s mind as to which di- (~onti nu ed on Page 5) The ma n who \’-‘ill be most affected by the bombing, the kiosk a ttendant Hal Bern, called the incident ”a mess” and sa id he regarded it as a “malicious act.” Bern was reduced to standing out in the open yesterday with no more that a stool for .support.

Althoug h the controversy sm rounding the so-called ” loyalty oath” administered on college campuses across the country in 1953 may be vague in the memory of students now involved in the Angela Davis skirmish. three men on this campus were intimately involved then and see similarities between the McCarthy year of 1953 and the Re agan year of 1969. Vice Chancellor David S. Saxon, history professor Jolm \V. Caughey and astronomy professor Daniel M. Popper were required in 1953 to recite the following “loyalty oath,” drafted in 1949: “. I a m not a member of the Communist Party, or under any oath, or a party to any agreement, or under any commitment that is in conflict with my obligations under this oath. ” Fired for refusing Saxon and Caughey refused to sign the oath and were dismissed from their positions. Popper wa s in the faculty majority Tuesday, October 7. 1969 UCLA DAILY BRUIN 3 reinstated along with other non-signers in 1953 and was r eimbursed for back sala ry in 1956, Caughey believes that “real damage is done to anyone frred by the University.” ” If the regents’ dismissal of Miss Davis is sustained, many institutions will be reluctant to hire her,” Caughey predicted. th ough he said th at both cases involve a “power struggle” between the Unive:stty and the regents, Caughey conceded that Davis’ dismissal has the “superfictal appearance of an anti-Negro action.” More student activ ism c.aughey. believes t h,? t student activism will increase as a r esult of the firing of Mtss Davts because students are now more alert to the undercutting of their educational o pportunity which accompanies such actio n. ” He cau tioned against violent protest to regental policy, but claimed that it is “good basic action for students to make their opinions known.” who Caughey commended Chancellor Charles E. signed the oath. The Regents’ vote on Sept. 19, recommending dismissal of Communist Party member Angela Davis, was described as “similar in the abstract” (to the 1953 situation) by Saxon. Loyalty oath Young and the University faculty for their vocal opposition to the r egents’ action. When asked why the faculty adopted the 1950 anti-Comrnu· nist position, rescinded Oct. 1, he replied that it was a ·concession to the r egents calculated to resolve the controversy. “McCarthyism is not present today, but we have an atmosphere tha t is potentially more dangerous,” Saxon said. “The country is even more polarized now, partly because the traditiona l politica l ordering of left and right has broken down.” Because contemporary political problems are not an “exacerbation of a traditional political fabric,” the response to issues is more intense, according to Saxon. “People react in a more immediate, personal way to what they perceive as threats, ” Saxon said. “No one involved with the oath conceived of the potential for violent confrontation which is a very real possibility now.” He rec alled that students were “intellectually committed” but not overtly demonstrative on the oath issue. Saxon believes that the opposing positions on the two cases ar e essentially the same. ” The general public and the regents share the v iew that the University shouldn’t hire people like Angela Daivs. The academic community feels equally strongly that we have to hire people without regard to their politic·al views,” he said. The Vice Chancellor expressed certainty that the present case will be resolved favorably for Miss Davis in the courts. Thi-s is the “element of hope” that Saxon remembers as lacking during the oath controversy. “In the 1950’s it was completely unclear that any remedies to regental policy would be found,” he said. “Now a bOdy of law has developed providing a clear remedy fo r the problem.” Saxon is convinced that court action would serve as a ” deterrent ” to repressive regental action of which the Davis frring is only one aspect. Because of his confidence in the deterrent effect of a legal settlement, Saxon advised against campus demonstrations in protest of the r egents’ decision. ”Demonstrations have a-certain cathartic and therapeutic value but I don’t really perceive them as contributing to a r esolution of the problem,” he said. Furthermore he warned tha t student demonstrations “will be divisive, will split stu:. dents and faculty and will cut off the administration.” For Vice ChanceUo r Saxon, non-compliance with the regents’ oath was the necessary response. As to the appropriate course for faculty and administrators, Saxon stated, “that’s a n individual decision.” “I never thought it was realistic to expect people to be martyrs,” he remarked. “My decision had to do with my concept of the Unicontroversy· Angela Davis case of the 5Os By Jo hn Ramsey DB Staff Report er Vice Chancellor David S.

Protection assumed ”It was understood that non-signers wouldn’t be flred, provided the faculty of the University strongly supported the anti-Communist position of the Regents,” he said. Popper claims that pressure for passage of the resolution was “self-genera ted.” Intimidation and confusion account for the behavior of many faculty during the oath controversy, according to Popper. He claims that the faculty’s 1950 r esolution did not represent their true sentiments. Popper documents that assertion with a poll taken in 1952 by the Special Committee of the Southern Section of the Academic Senate. The “Wenger Poll” to which 77 per cent responded, indicates that the faculty stro ngly opposed the oath and ” regental intrusion” into faculty autonomy. Fifty-nine per cent disagreed with the statement that ”membership in the Communist Party, even though it remains a legal political party, is sufficient reason for disqualification of a faculty member. ” Eight-three per cent indicated that failure to sign the oath should not, in itself, constitute cause for dism”issal from the faculty. Senate fears pr ecedent Evidencing faculty concern over the application of political tests, academic senate members voted two to. one that the oath set a precedent which might lead to barring members of other groups from the faculty. The delay in the promotion of an anti-war activist Berkeley professor and regental scrutiny of UC Irvine administrator and SDS member Mike Krisman, justify the faculty’s concern, according to Popper. Of particular interest to those who claim the ftring of Miss Davis is a racist act, damaging to the University’s nascent black: studies prog r am, is the faculty analysis of the likely effect of the oath. Seventy-seven per cent believed regental tests of political eligibility would d iscour age some desirable new members from joining the faculty. Got a news tip?

SDS factions: heading for a fatal showdown? CHICAGO (AP)-Two contending wings within the tempest-tossed Students for a Democratic Society ( SDS) are heading for a confrontation that could leave the nation’s major radical youth organization in shambles. A resounding failure could be fatal to organizing efforts – particularly for the Weatherman faction, which takes its name from a Bob Dylaq song line: Weatherman has been preparing for months for the Chicago demonstrations. “The action is probably going to make them or break them,” said one source about the faction. “Very soon, the only active people left in SDS will be FBI agents,” said one radical who, like many others, fears the impending showdown could resulnn the demise of both factions. The two factions .- “The Weatherman” and the Revolutionary Youth Movement II .:· are planning ” They .are dev~oping a hardening cadre,” a government source said. “It’s not too far advanced right now, but there are signs it’s on the way.” ·eight movement leaders. The charges stem from the violence accompanying last year’s Democratic National Convention. At stake in the showdown is prestige-something ·both factions need if they are to build a following among un3.ligned radicals on the nation’s campuses . “You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.” Weatherman currently controls the SDS National Office here. It has tightened security and taken tentative steps toward building revolutionary cadres, or leadership cells. Cadres, internal security and secrecy fly in the face of the still-dominant impulses within the radical youth movement, which long has taken pride in its unstructured manner. So. does the hint of escalated violence implicit in Weatherman’s Chicago slogan, “Bring the War Home.” The West Coast-based RYM II adopted the slogan, “Get the U.S. Out of Vietnam Now,” for its Chicago demonstrations. RYM. II, in co;:.trast, is making a late entry. If its efforts fizzle, the faction likely will blame lack of preparation time. Weatherman is planning a rally in Lincoln Park- •one of the battlegrounds during the Democratic Convention. It also is calling for demonstrations in high schools, a r ock-music festival, and a march and rally at the federal court house. RYM II’s schedule is geared more to working class and non-white neighborhoods, but it also calls for a high school boycott, a demonstration ou tside a Chic ago factory, street rallies and a protest against hospital condition.

Tuesday, October 7, 1969 UCLA DAILY BRUIN 5 Meyerhoff speech rules revised, new area added By Alison Cross DB Staff Writer Four major changes have been effected in the “time, place and manner” rules covering free speech and the conduct of public assemblies here, according to Dean of Students Byron T. Atkinson. • The reservation system for speakers in Meyerhoff Park has been scrapped. • A second free speech area has been opened in Schoenberg Hall partier. • The Board of Review has been officially dissolved. • All regular student organizations will be divided into two categories: sponsored and independent. Altho~gh the Student Activities Office operating code separated student organizations into these cate- gories, an explicit stipulation was not included in the old “time, place and manner” rules. Departmental relationship Sponsored organizations maintain a departmental relationship. Atkinson cited the Engineering Society and the Computer Club as examples. In addition, sponsored groups can be neither religious nor po- litical. OrgarV-zations that are sponsored receive priorities ” in terms of funds for programming space,” Atkin- ·son said. The original set of ” time, place and manner” regulations was adopted in 1965. However, they consisted primarily of general statements without a great degree of specificity, according to Dean of Student Activities Charles McClure. ln March, Vice Chancellor Rosemary Park, who is also chairman of the University Policies Commision (UPC), asked McClure to draft a set of “time, place and manner” rules. He incorporated many or’ the interpretations that had been read into the regulations during the past yea r. ” I heard nothing more until UPC was in its formative stages of assigning task forces during the summer to some of the critical issues on campus,” he said. McClure requested UPC to assign a special task force to work on the ” time, place and manner” rules. ” It was decided by UPC to include in the Communications Task Force the responsibility to evaluate and come up with some recommendations for the ‘ time, place and manner rules,'” he noted . “As the summer progressed it became apparent that the assignments of things to the task force were inhibiting their giving more attention to campus rules.” McClure then suggested that the task force commission a subcommittee to work on the regulations. The subcommittee was formed and a set of rules drafted. “The subcommittee had a set of regulations. I had a set of regulations,” he said. “We had a meeting a couple of weeks ago and their recommendations were still in subcommittee.” Asked to consult Although McClu r e was not appointed to the subcommittee, the members asked him to consult with them. “I advised them that where possible I would incorporate their recommendations into the set I had prepared,” McClure added. New state law requires that a set of the regulations be distributed to every student each qu arter. McClure explained that the subcommittee’s draft was not ready “when it was necessary to submit them (the rules) to the President’s Office and the Regents’ Counsel and get them printed.” In order to comply with the state law, either McClu re’s draft of the regulations had to be dis- tributed or the old rules had to be reprinted. “I did not want to distribute the old rules because they were too vague and general,” he said. “The new set did not contain any substantive changes in the rules we’d been operating under since 1965. ” McClure added that the task force subcommittee’s recommendations “did influence” his drafl He included two of the subcommittee’s proposals in the set of rules he submitted to UPC. These consisted of “the desire to return Meyerhoff Park to an ad hoc free speech area and to establish another free address area in Schoenberg Quad,” McClure said.

These four students and four others are all r eturning to compose the varsity debate. The Debate .Union hopes to recruit a new ” crop” of freshmen, Miss Bornstein continued. Last year UCLA debaters traveled to Brigham Young University, Oregon University, Harvard, Dartmouth, Oberlin, Kansas State Teachers College, UC Berkelely, Houston, Georgetown, Northwestern, Tulane and Air Force Academy, taking honors at all these tournaments. The debaters attribute part of the success to coaches Patricia! Long and Bonnie McCracken. Due to its success, the debate program has enlarged considerably and to facilit a te this g rowth, Assistant Coach McCracken will have the help of two new assistant coaches, Bill Southworth and Michele McCauley, who were champion debaters themselves.

Oct. 8 KERCKHOFF HALL TICKET OFF ICE FIRST FEDERAL SAVINGS ANNOUNCES EXPANDED $200,000 STUDENT LOAN PROGRAM money market. M ost institutions do not have sufficient funds available to mee t existing loan demands. So many loan requests are unfilled. Arid very, very few financial institutions are now making any student loans at all. Result: the money shortage may create an education shortage. The management of First Federal is deeply concerned about this situation. We believe that in order to achieve a stable and meaningful society, the nation simply cannot afford an education shortage. Therefore, in an effort to better serve the long-range needs of the students and the community, we are expanding our already substantial . student loan program. During the commg year, First Federal will make $200,000 available to local students under the Feder” ; lv Insured Student Loan Program. Loans of apo ro: .. :nately $1,500 per year will be made to each siudeni eligible. We consider this new program an investment in the long-term growth of the community … and as a gesture of appreciation to local residents who have made fast-growing First Federal the largest locally-owned financial institution on the West Side. FIRST FEDERAL SAVINGS and Loan Association of Santa Monica Santa Monica: 401 Wilshire Blvd. Westwood Village: 1090 Glendon Ave. Gordon Bosserman must be crazy because he’s a lineman By all outward appear a nces Gordon Bosserman is a perfectly normal individuaL At 6A and 230 pounds he’s a little larger than the average man on the street, but that fact alone doesn’t explain his personality quirk. Bosserman, you see, is a football player, and all football players are a little bit crazy, but Bosserman goes so far as to play offensive left tackle fo r the Bruins. Linemen are the guys who roll around in the middle of the field while the ·backs rusb to fame, glory and handsome bonuses. This is Bosserman’s fourth year of such activity for UCLA. “My one distinguishing characteristic is how g rubby my uniform gets during a game, ” Gorden says. “And they even take tha t away from me when we play on Tartan turf like Wisconsin has.,. Linemen least publicized of a ll Linemen are the least noticed, least publicized members of a football team, but even the defensive linemen are receiving a lot of attention these days compared to offensive linemen. Wha tever motivates a person to become an offensive left tackle, it doesn’t include publicity. Bu t does the lack of publicity bother Gordon Bosserman o r his roommate Ron Tretter, the eruin’s offensive left ~ard? “Only on Sund ay morning,” Gordon says. “Actually it isn’t so bad. Once in while Tretter even gets his pictu r e in the paper. The caption will tell all a bout(Dennis)Dummitthrowing a touchdown p ass to(Gwen) Cooper, and then 4 I=E./>.1? 1-\IG~ I>.ND R\SlN’ \ at the very end it’ll say ‘By the way, the guy lying on the ground in the lowe r right hand corner is Bruin guard Ron Tretter.'” Uncanny ability to get cut “I seem to have the uncanny ability of getling cut out of every picture that is ever taken, though. But even if the paper only mentions the guy who made the touchdown run, it’s still personally satisfying to remember the hole you opened to start that run.” Offensive linemen have to remember things like holes they opened because there aren’t even any special statistics to keep tr ack of their accomplishments. ” About they only time you hear one of us men~ioned,” Gordon says, “is when there is a fifteen yard penalty for holding.” Linemen only have each other There a r e numerous statistics for the rest of the offensive team, and the defensive team gets credited with tackles, assists and intercep- tions, . but the offensive interior linemen don’t have anything except each other. Perhaps this is why !3osserman and Tretter share an apartment (along with Bruin linebackers Vince Bischof a nd Gr eg Snyder) a few miles · from the UCLA campus. Having just moved into the apartment the decor is rather incomplete, but the necessities are there. After all, what more do you need than a table, a few chairs, a bookcase and a television set?

Why, they hardly have time to study, much less chase girls around. ” Actually, as far as studying goes, I don’t get much more done in the off season than I do during football,” Gordon says. ” I just put on a big two week study thing at the end of the qua rter a nd I usually get better g rades during footb a ll than in the off season. It’s the same way with a lot of guys ·though. You just use your time more efficiently, and most guys don’ t take the toughest cou rses during the season either.” One of the uses the a pa rtment televisio n ·set is put to is showing Bosserman in his roles as an extra. An extra is TV’s counter part to football’s offensive lineman. For Bosserman, anonymity seems to be a way of life. ” I’ve been working as a TV and movie extra for about two years now, and it’s a good way to make a little money, but I wouldn’t want to do it for the rest of my life. Recently I worked on ‘Winning’ n:nd ‘Number One,’ which is about a pro quarterback with some ego problem. It’s definitely one to miss.” True to form, a couple of weeks ago you m ay have seen O.J. Simpson in a starring role on” University Medical Cente r,” but you probably missed Gordon Bosserman throwing a harpoon for a few seconds on “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir” the following ni ght. Such is the life of a lineman . There is one thing that could make up for a ny lack of publici ty the interior linemen receive this year. When Bosserman came to UCLA from Paramount (“Not too many guys have made it to the big time from my high school”) four years ago, one of the main reasons for coming here was that he wanted to play in the Rose Bowl. ” For a lot of us this is our last chance to go to the Rose Bowl, a nd we want to make the most of it. Tretter here has been around for five years and he still hasn’t played in the Rose Bowl. ” We’ve got an optimistic outlook this year, but then we’ve never had a Pessimistic attitude. You couldn’t play if you did. But I think we have a lot more confidence and experience this year. You don’t have to worry about the other gu ys doing their jobs, and that makes you work even harder to keep up with them .” So far this year the Bmins have won four games, which exceeds last year’s output in the win column, and Bosserman feels the team is sound. ” We won our first couple of games last year too, but we began to show our weaknesses in the second game. We’re going to have some real tough ballgames this year, but I think the two toughest will be Stanford and USC.” I UCLA Daily Bruin Classified Ads I I Apts.-Furnished ……… 17 2 8 ED RM apt.

ADDENDUM TO EME:RG!::NCY MEETING (10/7/69) RESOLUTION 3 The Faculty of the University is the only body capable of evaluating the academic competence of its members and accrediting courses. This is embodied in the fo!IOI.ving: 1. The §tanding orders of the Regents, Ch. 9, Section 2b, which reads: “The Academic Senate shall authorize and supervise all courses and curricula offered under the sole or joint jurisdiction of the departments, colleges, schools, graduate divisions, or other University academic agencies approved by The Regents, except that the Senate shall have no authority over courses In the Hastings College of Law, San Francisco Art Institute, in professional schools offering work at the graduate level only, or over nondegree courses in the University Extension. No change in the curriculum of a college or professional school shall be made by the Academic Senate unti 1 such change shall have been submitted to the formal consideration of the Faculty concerned.” 2. Traditional policies and practices of the University as stated in the Handbook for Faculty for the University of California which states: ”Hith the advice and counsel of his colleagues within the departments the Chairman performs the following duties ••• Distributes teaching assignments, schedules class hours and supervises reports to appropriate University Officials.” On October 3, 1969, the Regents resolved, ” that the Regents instruct the President that during the Fall quarter of 1969 Professor Davis shall be assigned no teaching duties and that she shall not be authorized to give instruction in any course under the jurisdiction of any school, college, department, or other academic agency approved by the Regents.” The effect of this resolution is to jeopardize the established prerogative of the faculty to give credit for courses and to leave the faculty without effective guidelines for the execution of its duties. Further as a duly appointed officer of instruction Professor Davis has been judged by her colleagues as fully qualif ied to teach philosophy at the University of California. Therefore, there is no basis for distinguishing her status from that of any other faculty member. 1.Je therefore resolve that, should the UCLA Registrar refuse to accept the directive of the UCLA Committee on Courses pertaining to credit for Philosophy 99, after having been duly notified of the directive, then and in such case members of the Faculty of UCLA shall submit grades for all courses solely to a special Ad Hoc Committee to be appointed by the Committee on Courses. This committee will collect and compile grades and issue certificates of completion of degree programs. C. Hade Savage Henry 1 :1.

Reagan W€dnesday assailed UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young and Prof. Donald Kalish, philosophy department chairman, for their roles in hiring Communist Party member Angela Davis as an assistant professor. Reagan also claimed students are being placed in the “lowest priority” by Miss Davis’ faculty def€nders and said Kalish is “a man who is really on trial in this.” “The students’ emotions have been carried away by faculty attitudes. A small group of the faculty is using the students as cannon fodder,” ‘he added. The governor’s statements were made during an impromptu press conference as he entered the Biltmore to address the annual meeting of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. The UC Board of Regents, of which Reagan is an ex .officio member, has initiated dismissal proceedings against the 25-year-old Miss Davis and ordered that she not be allowed to teach a philosophy course for credit in the fall term. However, they decided not to remove her from her classroom and she has been assigned to teach a noncredit course. Doubts Change in Party Eeagan said the professors who at’e defending Miss Davis “should ask themselves whether there has been a change in the Communist Party-whether a member of the Communist Party can be independent and not follow party dogma ·whil-e teaching.” . \.nswering his own question, the governor said, “I don’t think so but the professors aren’t interested in that.” ·· He said that Young .and . Kalish violated a rule in effect for 30 years against hiring of Communists. “My personal opinion is this was deliberately contrived as a provocation to bring about a confrontation,” the governor said. Young, replying later to the ‘ governor’s statement, said: “I categorically deny any assertion that the UCLA administration in any way has sought to bring about a confrontation at any time on this case. “I played no role whatsoever in hiring Miss Davis,” Young said. “Miss Davis was hired before anyone in the administration knew she was a member of the Communist PartY. “When charges were made. the UCLA aclmini~tration through the president of the university took the matter to the regents to clet<.:rmine vvhether their rules against Communists still applied in view of court decisions and the regental statement (of June 30) prohibiting political tests. and we asked for regental direction.” Unavailable For Comment Kalish could not be reached for comment, but he has frequcntl.v denied knowing Miss Davis was a . Communist when she was hired. Reagan also contended that students of the course in Recurring Philosophical Themes in Black Literature which Miss Davis is conducting could have received credit for tCJking it if another instr’Jctor had been assigned. As Reagan prepared to speak to the· accountants, Miss ·Davis was telling a mainly student crowd of about 1.250 persons in UCLA’s Pauley Pavilion that she felt politics belong in the classroom. “The fact that I’m a member of the Communist Party says something about what kind of mind I have,” she said . “I can’t and I won’t keep my political opinions out of the classroom. I think they belong there.” Miss Davis said she reserved the ricrht to tell her students that she bclieves communism is the ·answer to social problems. but that she also wants her students to be free to criticize and discuss her views. Please Turn t.o Page 3;), Col. 8 UCLA Continued from Third Page She denied that she received any directives from the Communist Par- ty about how to conduct her class, and she said she had freedom io interpret and teach as she pleases. But she added that she “might be overestimating the intelligenc’e of the regents” in thinking they would be able to comprehend the distinction she was trying to draw. Miss Davis appeared in Pauley Pavilion as a guest on the Associated Students Speakers program. Later in the afternoon, she gave the second lecture in her course. T o d a y, the U C LA Academic Senate, which includes almost all registered faculty on the campus, will meet for the second time on Miss Davis’ case. The 3 p.m. meeting will take up resolutions calling for: · -A .i o i n in g of t h e academic community to oppose Miss Davis’ dismissal in a nondisruptive way. -Notice to the UCLA regi~trar that the faculty considers Miss Davis’ class to be a .credit course. (The registrar, William !· .Puckett, already has md1cated he will follow the lead of the administration in designating it a noncredit course on the regents’ order). -Refusal by the faculty to submit class grades in · • regular credit courses until Miss Davis’ class is also recognized for credit. -Establishment of a special ad hoc committee . if necessary, to collect am! compile grades and issue · certificates of completion of degree programs while the g r a d e- withholding goes on. The grades would then presumably be re” leased later.

SCHWARTZ, Acting Secretary Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division ( 10/9/69) COt·1t11 TTEE ON Ui~DERGRADUATE COURSES AND CURRICULA To the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division: On October 3, the Regents resolved that Professor Angela Davis 11 shal 1 not be authorized to give instruction in any course. ” Apart from all legal, moral and other implications of this action, its effect is to remove academic credit from Philosophy 99, a course properly scheduled after due approval by the Chairman of the Department of Philosophy, the Dean of the College of Letters and Science, and the Committee on Undergraduate Courses ar.d Curricula of the Los Angeles Division of the. Academic Senate. The Regental assumption of powers to remove a professor’s author i ty to teach a duly approved and scheduled course de facto infringes upon and obviates the authority of the faculty and this committee set doyn by the existing and binding Regental Standing Orders and the By-Laws of the Academic Senate to ••authorize and supervise all courses and curricula .” The Committee on Undergraduate Courses and Curricula objects to the introduction of this extraordinary means of interference with the l egitimate process of structuring the academic curriculum. The Committee hereby (1) reaffirms that following the established rules and procedures for accreditation of courses under its jurisdiction, including considerations of the competence of the faculty member in charge of the course, Philoso~hy 99, to be taught by Professor Angela Davis during the Fall Quarter 1969, has been approved as a regular accredited course, and (2) informs the Registrar accordingly. In view of the gravity of this matter, the Committee wishes confirmation of its decision by the Academi c Senate from which it der ives its authority, and to this effect introduces the following resolution: RESOLVED, that the Academic Senate, Los Angeles Division, affirms that Philosophy 99, to be taught by Professor Angela Davis in the Fall Quarter 1969, has been duly approved, following established rules and procedures, as an accredited course.

Leon Letwin School o! Law Campus ac ADDENDUM TO EM~H ENCY MEETING ( l 0/9/69} -9-.·- Motion to Table: Mr. Schwartz moved to table the Resolution, including the original and its substitute. Mr. H. Schwartz, alluding to the interest of maintaining unity and the desirability of not foreclosing options which the Division may, at a later more appropriate time want to consider, moved to table the motions then being debated. Motion seconded and carried by a standing vote of 211 to 149. MOTION: Mr. Letwin introduced and moved the adoption of Resolution 3 which appeared as an adderidom·.to the Call amending it to add the following: “To ensure that no student will be affected by this procedure against his will, the special ad hoc committee will arrange to have the grades of any student who so requests transmitted to the UCLA Registrar 11 • Motion seconded. Mr. Letwin’s remarks are printed In full: MR . CHAIRMAN : I am in the env iable position of having had this resolution thus far attacked neither by the Governor nor Professor Marcuse. Let’s see if that does any better for its chances than the reverse state of affairs did for Professor Morr is ‘ resolution. I will spare you the reading of the body of the resolution. It merely recites some of the arguments that are now part of our staple artillery of charges against the Regents. If the Resolution has any special significance at all, it is in the action proposal contained in the final paragraph which I shall now read. ” \·Je therefore resolve that should the UCLA Registrar refuse to accept the directive of the UCLA Committee on Courses pertaining to credit for Philosophy 99, after having been duly notified of the directive, then and in such case, members of the faculty of UCLA shall submit grades for all courses solely to a special ad hoc committee to be appointed by the Committee on Courses. This Committee will collect and compile grades and issue cert ificates of completion of degree programs 11 • I should say the following concerning what I thus far read. It does not call for a strike in the sense of any effort to i nterfere with the order ly teaching activities of the campus; it is rather an effort to put meat onto the proposition that the faculty of the University is, under present regulations, the only body capable of evaluating the academic competence of its members and accrediting courses. I would like to follow a similar route to that Professor Morris staked out in recognizing the strongly and wi dely held feelings on the part of faculty members that it is at this point inappropriate to take an action which might injure students who were not i ncl i ned to follow the course set forth, and I therefore propose adding the following sentence: 11To insure that no student will be affected by this procedure against his will, the special ad hoc committee will arrange to have the grades of any student who so requests transmitted to the UCLA Registrar 11 • This takes care completely and totally of the objection that people’s status with respect to the draft, jobs, graduation, or transfer to other institutions would against their will be interferred with by the operation of this rule. Now, I would like to briefly address myself to some of the same questions that Professor Harris did from a somewhat different point of view. I know there are widely held feelings that action of any type beyond ~-1hat we have already done is inappropriate. I vJould justify the effort to.:do something more than we did on the following argument: · He all start with certain common ground. \~hat the Regents did, we have said innumerable times, is unconstitutional! It is in violation of the First Amendment. It violates due process. It is in violation of the principles of academic freedom. It is truly and deeply wrongful in every sense of the word . \ (l 0/9/69) -10– Having so characterized the situation, it seems to me peculiarly inappropriate to respond merely by the passing of resolutions of condemnation and otherwise pursue our normal, routine functions without the slightest deviation. If in fact~ what has been done to the University is intolerable, we have to find iome way of showing that we do not tolerate it. So I think action of some type is called for. Now, Professor Morris also commented on the issue of the lawsuit. The natural inclination of many here is to wait to see what happens there before taking any further action. While I share the feeling of most everyone here that the lawsuit is of tremendous importance and that a victory in it would be of great consequence, I want to make very clear just what the lawsuit would accomplish and what it would not accomplish. Its most outstanding effect would be that never again would the Regents predicate the act of firing somebody on the grounds that he was a mere member of the Communist Party. It would clearly obviate that. But that is about all it would do by its own direct operation. It would in no way fua’lei”fnterferred with the firing of President Clark Kerr; it would not interfer:e· with respect to t~arcuse last year; it does not interfere with what they now do as a routine monthly affair in reviewing promotions for faculty members whose politics they do not care for. What would happen is that firings and refusals to promote would take place under a different rhetoric than they now do. They would be couched in terms of the lack of capacity of that person, or his age or fifty other reasons that competent counsel can think of to produce the desired result without stating the result frankly and openly. The heart of the problem is political and we have to find some way of responding politically, not merely relying on the operations of the courts, important as those are. If we respond only reflexively with another lawsuit, I think we’ll go in circles, always on the defense and never coming to grips with the central issue: how to prevent the outrageous, political interference by the Governor and those Regents who follow his lead, in the internal workings of the University of California. Now, one might quite legitimately ask, how precisely does this resolution do that and I must say I have some difficulty with full conviction saying that this resolution does accomplish this in full. I advocate this resolution because I do not find many other effective ways of making a minimum commitment beyond mere resolutions of condemnation. It is quite true, as Professor Abell pointed out, that the R~gents are strong and powerful and the Governor is strong and powerful, and I need no one to persuade me that that is so. I am fully convinced that today the Governor is the single most powerful man in the University of California system—surely not President Hitch. But there is one thing that with all their power they cannot do: with all their capacity to disrupt, to interfere, and even to destroy the University, they lack the power to educate 27,500 students at UCLA, without the students and without the faculty. It just is not so that the faculty and students are transient objects and mere employees of the University of California. Now, finally, one might say, it is important to act responsibly, and not to overreact. I have never thought, based on my observations of academic life, that the tendency of faculty was to over-react. Certainly nothing in the historic experience of the 50’s or the loyalty oath controversy here would make me think that the principle problem is that faculties react too energetically or too militantly. Still, I will accept the principle it is important not to over-react. It is,by the same token,.important not to under-react. It is ‘ ~I 0/9/69) ‘:” 11- important to think through a course of action that is tailored to the particular need and I don’t think mere resolutions of condemnation do that. This resolution is an effort in that direction. I ask that we not conduct ourselves in such a manner as to invite the description which Theodore Roosevelt was said to have made of \>Ji 11 iam Howard Taft, 11He means well, feebly.•• Mr. McGee, supporting the Resolution, expressed alarm at the prospect of another motion to table. Recalling that 20 Black faculty members had pledged themselves to do something and that this pledge had evoked from one Regent the threat of their being fired, he called upon the Senate to join them in acting, at least to the extent proposed by the resolution. SUBSTITUTE MOTION: Mr. Villarejo moved adoption of the Resolution (appended to these minutes) authored by Mr. Meyers and distributed prior to the meeting. He stated that while he did not support the substitute, he believed it important that the Senate have alternatives before it to consider. In seconding the motion, Mr. Orbach expressed preference for the substitute motion as a more positive method of procedure to ensure that Professor Davis’ course is offered and given credit. Messrs. Slavin, Tigar, Taylor, Ranger, and others spoke to the question. MOTION TO TABLE: Responding to Mr. McGee’s remarks, Mr. H. Schwartz suggested an alternative course of action to that proposed by the motions being debated: he tendered to Mr. McGee his written resignation from the faculty, effective upon the firing of his 20 Black colleagues who had announced their intention to withhold grades. He then, for the reasons stated at the time of his earlier motion to table, moved that the business before the Division (the original and substitute motions) be tabled. Motion seconded but, by vote of 81 to 211, failed to carry. MOTION TO REFER: Mr. \·Ienger moved that Resolution 3 and the substitute motion be referred to the Committee on Courses and Curricula for careful consideration and resubmission to the Senate at its first opportunity. Motion seconded by Mr. Holzer. The motion to refer failed by a vote of 110 to 173. ‘ A motion to adjourn failed. The previous motion was moved, second~d and carried. A division of the House indicated defeat of the substitute motion, 80 Yes and 178 No. A request for a mail ballot- on the main and substitute motions was made by 35 members.

The University community’s outrage and anguish, which we share, is a response to an attack upon the most fundamental of academic principles. We believe that the community must and will respond further to this attack. In our response, the substance of the critical and inseparable issues must not be clouded by differential perceptions of which issue is the most important. The Regents’ action ignores a principle central to the achievement of excellence in higher education: that an individual’s fitness as a teacher be determined by his professional qualifications and conduct, not by his lawful political associations. The Regents’ action clearly frustrates the efforts of the University to increase minority involvement in ways relevant to both the minority communities and the University. It is reasonable to expect that many of the most able minority teachers and students will frequently come to the University with unpopular views when judged by majority standards. The Regentally-imposed political litmus test stamps the University of California as particularly inhospitable, and virtually paralyzes its recruitment program during a period in which the competition among universities for minority scholars is intense. Similarly, such a political test poses a grave threat to present minority members of the University family. The Regents’ action appears to have been taken deliberately, with knowledge of the high probability that it would be declared unlawful. Nevertheless, some Regents have reportedly stated that they would not act legally until ordered to do so by a court of law. At a time when the Regents are calling on others in the University community to demonstrate respect for law and refrain from disrupting the normal processes of the University, the Regents themselves have displayed an official disdain for such principles. Therefore, we call upon the Regents to abandon this disruptive course of action and reverse its decision to dismiss Professor Angela Davis. P…acism is a f;;;e~o”r in th~ hngele. Davis Caee. Not because the Regent:n deliberately :::eek t:o penalize her becex.o~ abe is Black • though that may he so; rather beeauce the members “V:iho voted for hez d:tsmiosa.1 are implicated 1.n the practice of !!t,pt:ttuti~! ~i2$.:.. Institutional in the following sense. who do not intend delibarate injury to Blacks bec.tase they are black may nevertheless impose policieG that hurt Black people in disproportionately large numbers.

UClA Senate .Vofes to’ Back Miss Davis · BY I{ENNETH REICH Times Staff Writer ‘fhe chairma·n of the UCLA Academic Senate walked out of a senate meeting on the Angela Davis case Thursday after the faculty allowed 140 unauthorized students to attend. Under a substitute chairman, the facul_ty group then voted new steps backmg what they contend is the right of Miss Davis, a Comrrtunist Party member, to teach but refused to authorize a faculty strike in her behalf. About 50 other faculty members followed Chairman Lowell J. Paige in the walkout. Paige acted after the senate had voted 273 to 212 . to lh the students stay, despite the fact that they.were sitting in the balcbny in apparent violation of senate bylaws. · The students refused repeated entreaties by Paige and others to leave before the vote was taken. They originally had walked uninvited into the balcony following a demonstration outside Royce · Hall, wliere the fa~ulty meeting was held. Many of the students involved are a~fili~ted with. campus radical orga• mzations that have called for stronger action 011 Miss Davis’ behalf than the faculty has so far been willing to take. · · A few minutes after Paige left the Please Turn to Page 28, Col. 3 1_,. · 1′,fv\ts oc.\-. 1 o, ~~ f. \ meeting, UCLA Chancellor Charles E. Young, who also has defended Miss Davis’ teaching, issu~d a state- ment deploring the student action. Young said the students had “forced their attendance” at the meeting and thereby had “deeply eroded the academic community’s position and made much more difficult the ability of the faculty and administration to state its case (for Miss Davis) properly and successfully.” “I hope all those students involved will examine their consciences on . their action,” the -chancellor said. “If they do so I believe they cannot escape recognizing t h e g r e a t 1 harm they have done this , university.” · P ai g e, who appeared shaken by the faculty vote to _let the students remain, sa1d: · “My commitment to orderly procedures is so great that I could not par.ticipate in a meeting in wh1ch the changes of structure were essentially forced by the presence of unauthorized observers.” Paige also has backed Miss Davis in her efforts to teach. Backs Teacher Before leaving, he designated Frederic Meyers, a professor of business administration, to act as substitute chairman. – Meyers, who had voted “no” on letting the students remain, is a major backer of Miss Davis on the faculty. He resigned as associate dean of the Graduate School of Business Administration last month in protest against the UC Board of Regents order to hegin dismissal proceedings against the black professor. Amid mucli confused de h1a t e, substitute motions, points of order and o the r p a r 1 i amentary · maneuvers, the faculty under Meyers decided to: -Give instructions to the UCLA registrar to designate Miss Davis’ philosophy course a credit course. (The registrar already has said he will observe instead the regents’ order that it be noncredit if taught by Miss Davis.) The vote on this was 338 to 28. -Call on the acadGmic community to join in the effort to reverse the actions taken by the regents against Miss Davis.

Checks of the campuses at Berkeley, Davis, San Francisco, Santa Ct;uz, Santa Barbara, Riverside, Irvine and San Diego show that nearly four weeks after the UC Board of Regents initiated dismissal proceedings against Miss Davis, this is the prevailing situation: -The faculties either have acted or are expected to act shortly to rescind the 1950 UC faculty endorsement of the regents’ policy against employing Communists. But proposals for withholding grades In all courses until the young assistant philosophy professor is allowed to teach for credit, or for taking other militant action in her behalf, have been rejected. ‘fhis trend also is seen at UCLA where the faculty, voting by mail ballot, has overwhelmingly rejected its earlier endorsement of a campus convocation on the Davis matter. Favors Retentions -The chancellors have not followed the lead of UCLA Chancellot· Charles E. Young, who came out publicly and unequivocally for re- taining !IIiss Davis on the faculty. The four chancellors on the northern campuses have not spoken out in public on Miss Davis’ case. Statements by the chancellors at Riverside and San Diego have been cautious. And the Irvine chancellor, Daniel G. Aldrich Jr., indicated approval of the firing in answer to a question at an Oct. 1 Chamber of Commerce meeting in N e w port Beach. -Students on many campuses l1ave been more interested in today’s Vietnam moratorium !ban the Angela Davis case. Although most student newspapers have backed Miss Davis in editorials and several of the student legislative councils haYe supported her teaching, she has nl)t been the subject of major demonstrations. Eight of the campuses, including UCT ,A, held issues referendums earlier this week, and the Santa Barbara campus will hold one Friday. One of the questions asked on each campus was whether students be- lieve Miss Davis should be fired. At UCLA, students voted overwhelmingly-7,386 to 1,388-that Miss Davis should not be fired. Results of other referendums were expected to be announced today. Generally, there has been considerably more interest on the Southern California . campuses in the Davis case-than on the Northern California campuses •. and the · faculties have been more; active than the students. This is the campus-by-campus situation: Berkeley-No special meeting of the faculty was called and the full Academic Senate will not convene until Oct. 21. Chancellor Roger Heyns is on leave, and Acting Chancellor Robert E. Connick has said nothing. The Academic Senate’s Committee on Academic Freedom has proposed resolutions rescinding the facui.ty endorsement on the Cmm:nunist ban, calling on the regents to reverse their actions against Miss Davis, and joining in legal actions on her behalf. The student newspaper, the Daily Californian, has editorialized in Miss Davis’ favor. A recent rally spon- sored in her behalf by the Interna- tional Socialist, a campus organization, drew· fewer than 100 persons. Davis-The Academic Senate met Tuesday afternoon, but deferred action on pro-Davis resolutions to Thursday. Chancellor James H. Meyer, addressing the meeting, did not dis- cuss the Dads case diredly, but said: “!think it should be cleat· that the Constitution of the Stale of California has given a public trust to the regents as a governing board … which means that” the regents at times strongly reflect public opinion .. . ” Several members of the Davis law school facu lty, who signed a statement saying they doubted the regents’ actions would be sustained in the courts, declined to go along with a paragraph submitted by UCLA law professors that claimed the regents had acted even though they knew that the courts would not go along. San Francisco-At an emergency meeting last Thursday, the Acade- mic Senate voted unanimously to take steps to disavow the 1950 faculty vote for the Communist ban. About 125 of the 300 medical school professors eligible to attend the meeting were present. Santa Crnz”-The advisory council of the Academic Senate voted Oct. 2 to ask the regents “not to violate commonly accepted rules of due process and their own rules of orderly procedures” in th.e Davis case al1d to “support (UCLA) Chan- cellor Young in opposing any efforts that might be made to prevent :Miss Davis from assuming her normal teaching obligations.” Drummond Pike, the leading stu- dent government figure on campus, wrote in the student newspaper that “student action should unite behind Miss Davis” cause,” but the newspaper itself has not carried any editorials. Faculty members compiled an 18- page “Report on the Angela Davis Case” which is one of the most comprehensive collections of doc- uments pertaining .to the case. Santa Barbara-The Academic Please Turn to Page 28, Col. 1 CAMPUSES OF UC · Continu.ed from ‘l’hird Page Senate will meet ‘fhursday to consider a resolution rescinding the endorsement of the Communist ban. The student legislative c.ouncil passed a resolution critical of the regents and the student newspaper, the Gaucho, editorialized against firing Miss Davis, Riverside – Chancellor Ivan Hinderaker, address- ing the Academic Senate Oct. 9, said, “It ill befits any of us to charge that the regents have acted immorally in the Angela Davis case . . . Let us make a major effort to cool this controversy, reduce the pressure and provide all participants in this crisis with an opportunity to resolve the problem short of a confrontation in which academic freedom -and the universityeould only be the losers.” The faculty proceeded to approve resolutions com- mending Young and calling upon the regents to reconsider their moves to dismiss Miss Davis and to reinstate academic credit for courses taught by her. Irvine – Miss Davis spoke on campus Oct. 9, drawing an o v e r f 1 ow crowd of students and t h r e e protests h o u s e- wives. The day before, the Academic Senate had ded ined, by a 51-41 vole, lo commandeer the U C I gt·ading system unless the regents retreated in the Pavis case. At the same time, however, t h e f a c u I t y called for legal action to prevent the regents from “interfering in the academic administration of this univ~rsity. ” Chancellor A 1 d r i c h asked at the N e w port Beach meeting Oct. 1 for comment on the Davis case, replied, “It is very clear. Communists are not to I.Je employed in the University of California. The only thing to .do is to get rid of them and that has been done. n San Diego – Chancellor William J. McGill warned his faculty at ‘an Academic Senate meeting Oct. 2 against prejudging the legality of the regents’ ac- tions against Miss Davis, and he declined to express himself on the merits of the case. But McGill pIed g e d, “There will be no ·inquisi- tion aimed at political heretics on this campus while I am chancellor:” The faculty then went ahead to vote a variety of pro-Davis resolutions, in- cludmg one condemning the regents. This is the only Academic Sen a t e thus far to go along with the UCLA faculty in con- . d’:~~1ing t!le regents. A resolution now in preparation will be introduced at the October 13 Town Meeting of the Academic Senate markin~ the October 15 National Vietnam Moratorium. The Angela Davis Defense Committee has scheduled a Convocation on that day. The Convocation is in no way inconsistent with the aims of the Moratorium. Information concerning the Moratorium is given below for your consideration prior to that meeting. On October 15, people throughout the United States will set aside their routine activities. Many will devote the day to working in their communities for peace in Vietnam. This first Vietnam Peace Action Day will be followed in November by a similar observance . To indicate the national nature of the demonstration, we list below some of the people who have endorsed it publicly, and some of the actions taken or planned, with emphasis on those in academic communities.

Harvard: With regard to the cancellation of classes, Franklin Ford, Dean of the Faculty, said: ”Under the circumstances, the fairest position for any of us to take is to treat this like a religious holiday which falls on a day when the university is open, a matter of individual conscience.” U of Illinois at Champaign: Chancellor Peltason endorsed ·a faculty proposal that the school observe a half-hour moratorium from 10:45 to 11 :15. U of Kansas: Any “peaceful protest” has been approved . U of Penn: The University will be open but faculty members are free to cancel classes and students may decide whether to attend ” as their consciences dictate”. Princeton: President Goheen has endorsed the principle of the Moratorium, and has left the decision to participate to the individual.

USC: Approximately 100 professors have agreed to cancel classes. Alan Cranston, Rev. Ralph Abernathy and Paul Schrade will speak at rally in Exposition Park, which will be followed by march to City Hall and to Pershing Square, and leafleting in the community. A. Theodore Forrester, Nina Byers, Stephen Fels, Meg Fels, John Deigh , Ernest Abers ARGUMENTS FOR THE RESOLUTION In order to understand why support of this resolution is important, members of the Senate need to know, indeed, are entitled to know, who is sponsoring the convocat_ion planned for October 15 and what activities are planned. The sponsoring organization is the Angela Davis Defense Committee whose entire membership consists of the eighteen UCLA faculty and staff serving as the Advisory Committee. to. the Afro-American Studies Center. Two kinds of activities are planned for Convocation Day. First, there will be an hour and one-half meeting to which the entire campus community is invited commencing_ at 11:00 a.m. Invited speakers include a number of UCLA faculty. It is the intention of the Angela Davis Defense Committee to give the University community an opportunity to learn how the actions taken to terminate Professor Davis’ appointment are viewed by the black community as well as present speakers who will discuss the broader and more fundemental aspects of the case. A second form of activity planned ~or October 15 are discussions and meetings held within academic units, preferably on a departmentwide basis. Responsibility for initiating and conducting such programs rests entirely with the faculty and students in the various academic units although the Angela Davis Defense Committee is prepared to provide assistance if representatives of the black community are requested for panel discussions or similar programs. At a time of grave cr1s1s in the University of California it is imperative that reasoned discussion continue. The format of the convocation is such as to permit the voluntary participation of both faculty and students in orderly educational activities. As the resolution clearly states no faculty member will, by support of the convocation, be committed to calling off class, to using class time for political discussion or even to participation in any of the activities planned for October 15. Rather, support of this resolution is an affirmation of reasoned discussion. In addition, support of this resolution will demonstrate that, in the sense of the resolutions adopted at the emergency Senate meeting of October 1, the initiatives taken by the Regents to fire Professor Davis have serious implications both for academic freedom and for the minority community educational programs now underway at UCLA. The Angela Davis Defense Committee also recognizes that some faculty members will be moved, through their own consciences, to support the convocation activities by postponing their classes or by other gestures of sympathy. Such private acts are welcomed but are not specifically endorsed by the statement of the resolution. Don Vi ll arejo Henry rlcGee ARGUMENTS AGAINST THE RESOLUTION The convocation scheduled for October 15 will be held. \Je are sympathetic with the motives for cal ling the convocation, we have no objection to it, and we do not oppose it. \Je do not, however, feel that it is appropriate for the Academic Senate to resolve to officially support the convocation. In asking the entire campus to attend and participate in all the sessions, we are, in effect, advocating a suspension of campus activities while the convocation is taking place. According to Professor Henry McGee at the Emergency Meeting of the Academic Senate on October 1, the convocation in volves two large-scale assemblies, both at 11:00_ a.m., _ one on Hednesday, October 15, and one on Friday, October 17. In add ition , we understand that programs are being planned to fill the entire days and evenings from October 15 through 17. He have not seen an agenda or description of the programs contemplated. He know that the convocation is sponsored by the Angela Davis Defense Committee, but we know nothing of who the principal speakers will be or of the kinds of views that will be expressed. He have no assurance, for example, that members of the Student Coalition or BSU might not have prominent billing (representatives of these groups addressed the Academic Senate at the emergency meeting on October 1). He do not object to these groups and we defend the i r right to express themselves, but do not believe the Senate should endorse whatever they might say. He have no assurance that the convocation might nottake the form of a large-scale demonstration or, pending events between now and then, even a riot. He do not prejudge the activ ities that may take place on October 15 and after, but we do not believe it would be . appropriate that the Senate support them, sight unseen.

Three professors and two students have gone into court seeking a judgment that the firing is unconstitutionaL Increasingly disillusioned with the regents’ interference, the associate dean of the Graduate School of Business Administration, Frederic Meyers, has resigned his post rather than risk the humiliation of serving as “mere messenger boy for the delivery of missives.” A group of black faculty members have formed the Angela Davis Defense Campaign: they arc plann ing mass campus rallies this week to discuss the situation and arc urging professors on all nine campuses of the University of California to wit;1hold fallquarter grades until the ·regents restore full credit to Professor Davis’ course. In all likelihood, the dispute will not be settled until it has been argued all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court. Meanwhile, ir the regents’ l!del~ldft fl;lpo resents an effort to control what the Governor regards as a runaway state university, it seems to be backfiring. With the Angela Davis case, the regents may have pleased many California voters, but they have also handed campus activists an explosive new issue that seems destined to haunt the University of California-and the Governor-for some time to come.

Tigar Jailed … (c’ontinued from page 1 Tigar and Lefcourt were joined at the counsel table by other members of the defense team. Michael Kennedy and Dennis Roberts, the two other attorneys c ited by Judge Hoffman agreed to appear voluntarily after a Federal judge in San Francisco dismissed the bench warrants for their arrest. In a s urprising move, Judge Hoffman allowed the four to withdraw from the case without requiring that the defense waive its Sixth Amendment claim. Both Judge Hoffman and prosecutor Foran had previsouly contended that they would a llow the attorneys to withdraw only if they dropped their contention that Gary was essential to the defense. In another move fa vo rable to the defense, he dropped all charges of con tempt against the four. Gambl e Lost Foran’s seemingly brilliant scheme was a gamble-a gamble he lost. According to Tigar. Foran figured the defense could be induced to waive its Sixth Amendment c laim. If the four appeared and participated in the defense, he could assert adequacy of counsel by mere numbers. If they refused, they would risk a few nights in jail. Foran felt that if he offered to trade their release and withdrawal for a wavier of the Garry claim, they would capitulate. He underestimated their determination and loya lty, for they would do or say nothing that might harm the interests of the accused. When Judge Hoffman announced their withdrawal. Fora n, having lost his gamble. offered no resistance. Michael Tigar has returned to his teaching duties at the law school. He does not regret his decision to make his c li ents’ interest his own. In accepting this burden he is most like Susyphus returning to his rock a t the bottom of the ravine. Morris and Wasser strom UCLA SCHOOL OF LAW October 20, 1969 PAGE 5 Legal Philosophers Seek to Clarify Facts Surrounding the Davis Case EDITOR’ S NOTE, Law School Prolessors Herbert Norri’J and Richard Wasserstrom, in addition to being /owyen, ore also fv/1 profeswrs in the De partment of Philosophy, and . as wch, hold o unique vantage point in the Angelo Davis Case. Bo th professon hove spoken out and both maintain, that from their v antage point, the regent’s action in the Angelo Oovi5 matter was both illegal and o 1/ogrant infringement of Academic Freedom. The Philosophy Depo rtmen t recently released o statement of facts in the Angelo Davis matter and Professors N!orris and Wasserstrom mode that statement available to the OOCKET. On March 24, 1969, Miss Angela Yvonne Divis was offered a teaching position in the Philosophy Department of UCLA. Miss Davis’ appointment was at the rank of Acting Assistant Professor. Miss Davis’ regular appointment was authorized by the Office of the Dean of the College of Letters and Science. P rof. Herbe rt Morris The Employment Form was signed by Miss Davis on AprH 23: it was signed by the Department Chairman and submitted to the Dean ‘s office on May 2; and it was signed for the Administration on May 9 by Dean Philip Levine. Miss Davis was formally invited to accept her appointment by Dean Levine in a letter of June 3. Professor Davis’ appointment was part of a general UCLA effort to make University posts available to qualified persons from ethnic minorities. It in no waY departed from the regular departmental and administrative procedures for an academic appointment. Her interest in a teaching position was brought to the Department’s attention by the chairman of the Princeton department of philosophy, who said that hi~ department and that of Swarthmore College had considered her record suffic iently impressive to bring her to the East Coast fo r interviews. After receiving this information , the Philosophy Department of UCLA obtained letters of reference covering every part of Professor Davis’ educational experience. and supplemented these letters by a personal interview with her on the UCLA campus. Political Affiliation No mention of Professor Davis’ political affiliation was made in anv of the letters of reference r~ceived. No question concerning her political affiliation was raised by any member of the Department in communications with her or in discussions of her appointment: nor did any information what· soever, even by rumor, concerning Professer Davis’ political affiliation come to the attention of the Department until three months after the initial offer of March 24. It is, and in the me· mory of current members has always been , the policy of the Philosophy Department of UCLA to consider pol itical affiliation completely irrelevant to a candidate’s qualifications for appointment. On July I, !969, William Divale, an undercover agent for the FBI, asserted in a column of the UCLA Daily Bruin that the UCLA Philosophy Department ‘ ‘has recently made a two-yea r appointment of an acting assistant professor. The person is well qualified for the post, and is a lso a memb__er of the Communist Party.” The person was not named. On July 9, a San Francisco Examiner article named Professor Davis as the person referred to in the Bruin column , and alleged that she was a ” known Maoist, according to U.S. intelligence reports, and active in the SDS. and the Black Panthers ” It was in these two a rticles that the Philosophy Department first heard any mention of Professor Davis’ political affiliation. Neither article was given further notice in the news media. and neither created any stir in the general public. The Department made no attempt at this or any later time to determine Professor Davis’ political affiliation. At some point prior to July 16, either at the ir meeting of July 11 or possible earlier, the Regents of the University of California directed the UCLA Chancellor’s Office to determine whether Professor Davis was a member of the Communist Party, and not to sign any contracts with her pending receipt of this information. On July 16 a letter was sent to Professor Davis frorri.the Chancellor’s office which referred to the two newspaper articles mentioned above. and which read , in part: ‘·I am constrained by Regental Policy to request that you inform me whether or not you are a member of the Communist Party.'” Professor Davis was asked to reply by July 25. The letter was sent by registered mail and was returned to the Chancellor’s office unreceived . Professor Davis no longe r resided at the address to which the letter was sent and she was not in Los Angeles at the time. Regents Direct On August 20, after meeting with representatives of the Regents, Chancellor Young informed the Philosophy Department that he had ” been directed by The Regents (by their interpretation of their action of July ll, 1969 ), to take no steps affecting the employment status of Miss Angela Davis pending further action by The Regents following their receipt of the information which they instructed the Administration to obtain concerning the appropriatene ~s of her employment under the terms of the Regental policy barring appointment of members of the Communist Partv · On August 22. the Philosophy Department adopted and sent to the Chancellor a resolution which states. in part: ” We oppose and will not cooperate with efforts to secure any information that pertains to Miss Davis’ political affiliations. nor witt we coopera te with any effort to review Miss Davis’ qualifications otherwise than in accordance with normal Uni·versity prodecures. -‘ The resol ution also urged that ‘ ‘the University’s contractual obligations (to Professor Davis) be honored without further delay.” On August 26 the Chancellor’s office again sent to Professor Davis the letter of July t6 asking about membership in the Communist Party. On September 5 Professor Davis responded to the letter asking about membership in the Communist Party. Her Jetter states, in part: ” At the outset let me say that I think the question posed is impermissable. This. on grounds of constitutional freedoffi as well as academic policy. However, and without waiving my objections to the question posed. my answer is that I am now a member of the Communist Party . While I think this membership requires no justification here, I want you to know that as a Black women , I feel an urgent need to find rational solutions to the problems of racial and national minorities in white capitalist United States. I feel that my membership in the Communist Party has widened my horizons an¢ expanded my opportunities foJ· perceiving such solutions and working for their effectuation. The problems to which I refer have lasted too long and wreaked devastation too appalling to permit complacency of half – meaSures in their resolution. It goes without saying, that the advocacy of the Communist Party during my period of membership in it has, to my knowledge, fallen we ll within the guarantees of the First Amendment. Nor does my membership in the Communist Party involve me in any commitment to principle or position governing either my scholarship or my responsibilities as a teacher .. , Regents Orde r Hitch On September 19 the Regents adopted a resolution directing President Hitch to take Prof. Richard Wasserstrom to terminate Professor Davis’ University appointment This resolution reads, in full: ·’WHEREAS, on October II. 1940 the Regents adopted a Resolution stating that ·membership in the Communist Party is incompatible \\”ith membership in the faculty of a State University·: and WHEREAS , on June 24. 1940. the Regents reaffirmed and amplified .that policy with a Resolution stating. in pa rt. ‘·pursuant to this policy. the Regents direct that no. member of the Communist Party shall be employed by the University'”: and WHEREAS, in an action reported March 22. 1950. the Academic Sena te. Northern and Southern Sections, concurred in the foregoing policy by adopting a re.solution that proved members of the Communist Party are not acceptable as members of the faculty: and WHEREAS, on April 21. 1950, the Regents adopted a Resolution confirming and emphasizing their policy statements of October 11 , 1940, and June 24, 1949: and WHEREAS, it has been reported to the Regents that Angela Y. Davis was recently appointed as a member of the University faculty, and su bsequently she informed the University Administration by letter, stating, among other things, that she is a member of the Communist Party: NOW, THEREFORE, the Regents direct the President to take steps to terminate Miss Davis’ University appointment in accordance with regular procedures as prescribed in the Standing Orders of the Regents. In a letter dated September 20, 1969, Professor Davis was notified by President Hitch of the Regental resolution of September 19. Professor Davis received the letter on September 22. The letter reads. in part: ” the Standing Orders provide that the termination of the appointment of a member of the faculty before the expiration of his contract shall be only for good cause after the opportunity for a hearing before the properly constituted advisory com· mittee of the Academic Senate. In your case. the appropriate commitee would be the Privilege and Tenure Committee of the Los Angeles Division of the Academic Senate. This is to notify you that your University appointment will be terminated as of September 29, 1969, unless prior to that date you submit to Professor George G. Laties, (Continued on page 8 ) Memo Questions Legality of Professors Fi ring EDITOR’S NOTE, Professor Kenneth Karst has during the course of the Angelo Davis matter prepared o legal memorandum as to what he considers the low to be as to the legal issues ra ised by that case. Professor Karst is on expert in U.S. Constitutional low and his memo is set out in total below. INTRODUCTION This memorandum responds to whether two resolutions of the Board of Regents, as those resolutions are stated on Page 37 of the Handbook for Faculty Members of the University of California, are Constitutionally valid. (1) The 1940 resolution is quoted in the Handbook. Its operative language is: ” membership in the Communist Party is incompatible with membership in the fac ulty of a State University. ” (2) The 1949 resolution is paraphrased in the Handbook as saying ” that no member !Jf the Communist Party shalt be employed by the University.” In 1969, the Regents adopted an amendment to Standing Order J02.l (a ): ” No political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member of employee. ” The 1969 amendment appears, on its face , to supersede both the 1940 and the 1949 polic~es. However. the Regents might in the future choose to rescind their most recent declaration of policy, or to adopt an exception for the case of membership in the Communist Party. In this memorandum , I shall assume for purposes of argument that the 1969 amendment makes no change in the 1940 and 1949 resolutions, and that those re· solutions continue to represent Regental policy. SUMMARY OF CONCLUSIONS I. The power to impose qualifications for employment relating to loyalty (or to membership in an organi.zation said to be subversive ) rests with the Legislature if its rest anywhere. Such a power does not rest with the Regents. Even if the Regents did have such power under the California Constitution , however. II. The 1940 and 1949 resolutions of the Regents violate the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution. There are a number of other federal Constitutional infirmities in the two resolutions (e.g. , the denial of due process of law for want of a hearing on the mployee’s fitness, the unconstitutionality of the resolutions as bills of attainder). but the First Amendment issue is such an easy one that I shall limit the federal constitutional discussion to that subject. I. The Regents lack power under the Constitution of the State of California, to impose employment qualifications relating to loya lty or to membership in political organizations. The Regents of the University of California are a constitutional department of the government of the State. California Consti· tution article IX. section 9. Their orders have the force of statutes governing the University. See . e.g.. Hamilton v. Regents of the University of California, 2n U.S. 243 (1934 ). Thus there are some areas of University affa irs in which the Legislature cannot act. However, there are also areas of legislation that are outside the jurisdiction of the Regents. In Toman v. Underhill, 39 CaL 2d (1952). the Supreme Co.urt of California dealt with such an issue : the University of California loyalty oath. In its opinion striking down the Regents’ requirement of such an oath for faculty members. the Cou rt drew the controlling distinction between ” matter(s) involving the internal affairs .. of the Un iversity and “subject(s) of general statewide concern .” The first category falls within the legislative province of the Regents: the second falls within that of the Legislature. As the Court said in the Tolman opinion· ” There can be no question that the loyalty of teachers at the University is not merely a matter involving the internal affairs of that institution but is a subject of general statewide concern. Constitutional limitatio ns upon the Legislature’s powers are to be strictly co nstrued. and any doubt as to its paramount authority to require University of California employees to take an oath of loyalty to the sta te and federal constitutions will be resolved in fa vo r ot its action.” Thus it is the Legislature and not the Regents who ar~ empowered (Continued on page 7) PAGE6 October 20, 1969 UCLA SCHOQL.OF LAW LAW PROFESSORS ACTIVE IN DAVIS CASE by JON KOTLER Five Law School professors were instrumental in composing each of the eight resolutions overwhelmingly passed at the emergency meeting of the UCLA Academic Senate whi ch met to consider UC Regents’ action in the Angela Davis case on October 1. Those involved were Professors Arthur Rosett, Kenneth Karst, Harold Horowitz, Leon Letwin and Henry McGee. Prior to considering the resolutions, the Senate approved the report of the Committee on Academic Freedom, whose five members included P rofessor Arthur Rosett The Committee report stated that the termination of Miss Davis’ appointment by the Regents at their meeting of Sept. 19 was ” in grave violation of the principles of academic freedom. .(and) that it also impinges upon the individual and collective rights of all of the Faculty under the laws and consti tutions of the state of Ca lifornia and of the United States. ” Intervention Recommended Recommendations by this body included legal intervention to seek a judicial declaration that ” this infringement upon our rights of priv ilege and tenure and upon our constitutional rights is unlawful and void .” as well as calling upon all members of the Senate to contribute to the expenses of the planned litigation ” brought on their behalf.” Out of these recommendations came the subsequent lawsuit filed on behalf of the Senate, the details of which are explained elsewhere on this page. Resolutions one through five. were drafted primarily by Professors Kenneth Karst and Harold Horowitz. and included proposa ls \Vhich ra n the gamut from a demand that the Regents refu te their stand upholding political affili ation as a basis for disqualifica tion , to the appointment of an ad hoc committee cha rged with considering the 1 e g a I a s p e c t s of the Regents’ recent actions. Specifically , Resolution One declared that ”A facu lty member’s fitness to teach is to be judged by his professional qualifications and his own conduct, not the conduct of his political associates.” It also called upon_ the Regents to honor their own Standing Order 102.1 which sets out that ” no political test shall ever be considered in the appointment and promotion of any faculty member or employee. ” Resolution Two states that the Regents’ dismissal proceedings were ·’knowing and de liberate” violations of both the United States and California Constitutions as well as ” official ana rchy” and ” the height of irresponsibility” in as much as ” the University has a contractual commitment to Angela Davis (and ) its officers, including the Regents, are sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States and the State of California .” It ended by announcing that ” it is time for these officers to demonstrate their respect for law. ” The third resolution called upon the other divisions of the Academic Senate, the Sta tewide Assembly and the Academic Council to “join in t)lis Division’s iepudiation of political tests for membership in the Uni versity facility a nd its condeinnation of the Regents’ , action. ” • Resolution Four recommends that a ” friend of the court” be appointed to appear on behalf of the Senate in any hearing the Committee on Pr-ivilege and Tenure may hold in connection with Miss Davis’ dismissal ” to argue against application of the Regents’ resolutions of 1940 and 1949 disqualifying members of the Communist Party for membership in the University faculty. ” Committee Esta blished The establishment of a committee to advise members of the Senate on the desirability, timing, and conduct of liti gation to declare the invalidity of the Regents’ ~ resolu tions was the subject of successfully passed Resolution Five. Subsequently, Professor Harold Horowitz was named to head the committee, assisted by Professors Kenneth Karst and Henry McGee. Professor H e n r y McGee authored Resolutions Six and Seven, the latter calling for the establishment of the Angela Davis Fund ‘ ‘to gua rd against the possibility tha t Professor Davis may be severed from the University payroll. .and to assist in the payment of her legal fees and costs to oppose the w i II f u I action of the Regents. ” The final resolution to come out of the meeting was sub~ mitted by Professor Leon Letwin , in his role as Chairman of the Senate Committee on Equal Opportunities. It reflected that any serious effort to implement a policy of recruitment of minority group membe rs for UCLA faculty positions ” req uired acceptance of the fact that minority candidates will , with some frequency, come with unconventional political backgrounds and views as judged from majority perspectives. Regentally imposed political tests which assault the academic freedom ·of all will fall upon such candidates with unusual severity.” Prof. Leon Letwin A Student’s View Res o I uti on s i n Da vis Case Are Meaningless By Allen Fleishman SBA Vice President The Student Bar Association’s response to the Angela Davis affair has thus far been on par with that of our peers across the state. We of course dashed off the usua l resolution of indignation ” directing” (or did we demand ?) Chancellor Young to permit Miss Davis to continue teaching. Having contented ourselves with a mild but_ responsible expression of anger, we assumed a wait and see posture. If Miss Davis’ situation does not change for the better, I assume we will again ” demand” or ” implore”, or ” beseech” the proper authorities to take note once again of our indigantion. Perhaps it is time, in li g~t of Berkeley (see S.B.A. ‘s demanding letter to Ronald Reagan June, ’69 ) and in light of Angela Davis, to pose a modest querry: Wha t _the fuck do we think we are going to accomplish with resolutions?! It became clear to me in the aftermath of People’s Park Karst Files Suit To Block Regents By JON KOTLER An immediate outgrowth of the emergency meeting of the Academic Senate on October 1 was the filin g of a taxpayerS’ suit by Professor Kenneth Karst and four others on October 3. The complaint in the case of Karst v. the Regents of the University of California seeks both a declaratory judgment as to the constitutionality of the regental rule prohibiting Communists from holding faculty positions within the University, as well as an injunction against imposition of this rule by the Regents. Attorneys for the plaintiffs, who are acting under the request of the UCLA Academic Senate, are Charles H. Phillips and Richard H. Borow. On October 9, Professor Angela Davis, acting . through her attorney John T. McTernan of Margolis and McTe rnan, intervened, and- together with the original pla intiffs fi led for summary judgment. A hearing on this motion has been set for today by Superior Court Judge Robert W. Kenny. W. Kenny. However, attorneys for the Board of Regents have filed a demurrer and requested a change of venue to Alameda County, the home of the administrative offices of the University. that students had been effectively disenfranchised across the board. Reagan demonstrated that the ” people” of California are not those who voted overhelmingly in Berkeley for a park (including the scheduled recipients of the athletic field ) nor are the ” people” the sympathetic majority of students at the other U.C. campuses. With the Davis affair, Reagan extended this disenfranchisement to the faculty as well. In effect he and the Regents declared that the ” people” were fed up and would not grant the University its needed monies unless a firm stand was taken against Comunism. Meaningful Resolution The only time resolutions are meaningful is when they devulge a shift in opinion from the extpected. Thus, if the Orange County City Council were to deplore the use of troops in crushing the Berkeley People’s Park. that petition would effect a greater impact than 500,000 individual letters signed by students across the state. Therefore, the only people who benefit by our petitions is us. But then masturbation deosn’t cause acne or mental illness either, and sometimes it keeps one’s hfiad together. The logical direction one must be moved in after an acceptance of the above, is to a discussion of more effecti ve means of protest. Let me begin by saying that I now believe that all traditional forms of protest are either suicidal or meaningless. It is my belief that the current Board of Regents, Superintendant of Education, and Governor consciously want to destroy the institution of the University of Californai a nd replace it with a second rate system (That’s a conspiracy folks!) I base this upon my conviction tha t they are answerable to the uniformed majority who simply do not understand the nature of the animal they feel so threatened by. The schools most rocked by turmoil have been those with the highest academic reputation ; Harvard, Yale , Col- ‘ umbia, Berkeley and Stanford tO name a few. But people today don’ t want anymore trouble . Causes Are Irrelevant Causes are as irrelevant to the average angry voter as they are to the newspaper from which he gets his information. Consequently, if the people in power are to appease the voter, a more docile institution must replace the present one. I simply do not think that the current Regents would hesitate to fire the entire faculty and replace them with second rate professors who are willing to ” teach not riot” and second rate students who are eager to ” learn not burn “. Of course only a small percentage of faculty or students are really going to sacrifice their position once things ge t serious – but since they are . what made the University great, their loss will be its death. Conspiracy of Sorts Given this conspiracy of sorts, a new confronta tion is rea lly what they want. With the Berkeley precedent behind them, the police will be shooting into crowds and the true repression will be on. In other words, while I promised advice on stronger action, I have conclud ed that any action will facilitate the destruction of the University.

In the nex t section , this memorandum demonstrates how the California Su preme Court has now held that even the California Legislature’s efforts in this field are inva lid violations of the freedoms of politi cal association. But the principle of separation of powers that was enunciated in the Tolman decision remains the law of the Californ ia Constitution. 1_1. The 1940 and 1949 resolutions violate the freedoms of political assoca tion ·guaranteed by the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution . Beginning in the early 1960’s, the United States Supreme Court ha s consistently held invalid sta te and federal legisla tion either (a) forbidding employment of members of the Communist P arty or other organizations described as su bversive or dedi cated to the ~o nt overthrow of the Government, or (b) requiring, as con- ?ltJOns to employment, oaths or decla rations of non-membership m such organizations.

I shall outline three decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the California decision just mentioned. Then I shall comment on the relevance of these decisions to the Regents’ 1940 and 1949 resolutions. (1 ) Elfbrandt v. Russell , 384 U.S. 11 ( 1961. struck down an Arizona statute that made it a crime & purjury for a public employee (in this case, a school teacher) to take the state’s gene ral oath of a llegiance while knowingly being a member of the Communist Party or other organiza tion dedicated to the violent overthrow of the Government.

(3) The U.S. Sup reme Court followed these two . deciSIOns with United States v. Robel , 389 U.S. 258 (1967),_ whiC~ struck down a portion o f the (federal ) Subversive Activities Control Act of 1959 making it a crime for a member of . a Co_mmunist-action organization that is under final g~ trahon order (here. the Communist Party ) to be employed m a defense facility (here. a shipyard). _ The Court’s opinion uses language m_uc~ hke the a~~ua~e quoted from the Elfbrandt and Keyishtan cases: . _ !t JS made irrelevant to the statute’s operation tha~ an mdlv! du~l may be a passive or inactive member of a designated orgamzation. that he may be unaware of the organization’s unl~wf~~ aims. or that he may disagree with those unlawful _ aims. While Congress does have the powe: to protect agamst ~s-; pionage and sabotage. it must do so m narrowly-drawn legislation that does not bar from defense-facility mploy~ent persons whose political associa tions canna~. be ” proscnbed consistently with First Amendment standards. _ . . _ (4) On the basis of the Elfbran.dt and Keyis hian decisions. the California Supreme Court. m Vogel v. Cou_nty ?f u:>s Angeles. 68 Cal. 2d 18, 64 Cal. Eptr. 409 (1967 ). held mvahd section 3 of article XX of the California C~nstit tiOn. ~~ s section req uired of public emp oy . to s1gn an oath diSclaiming membership .in any orgamzatiOn that advoca~e s the violent overthrow of the Government. This was a smt by a taxpayer to enjoin the spending of public funds on the enforcement of the requirement of the al~enged ~a~h. ~he Cou_rt discussed the Elfbrandt and Keyishian dects_t~n s m detail. and specifically in reliance on th? ~ two deciSions reversed its 1952 dec ision that upheld a s1m11ar oa th that was prescribed in the Levering Act of 1950. THE FOUR CITED DECISIONS MAKE THESE POINTS CLEAR’ (l) Membership in the Commun ist Party cannot co_nslltutionally be made a disqualification for emp ~yment , mcluding public employment. and eci~ic~ ll y includmg emp oym~~t as a member of a state umverstty s faculty . More specih- ;;l~ prospective employee of the Univ_er~ ty of Califo r~i a cannot be required to disclaim membership m the Commumst Party as a conditi on on his being employed. . . , The Elfbrandt decision se t the bas1c rules for constitutiOnal \alidity in this area : Disqualification for emp oym~nt_ cannot rest solely on the pros pective employee· s membership m the Communist Party. absent any showing of active and purpose~ul forwarding by the prospective employee of aims of the Commumst Party that are demonstrated to be unlawful. ( court decision s make clear that the Party’s illegal activity ~u t itself be proved in each such case. See, e.g. , Mo ta. · Umted States, 367 U.S. 290 (1961 ). But the Elfbrandt deciSIOn de_ali with a criminal statute, punishing one who took the o~th of aile· giance while he was a member of the _Com.mumst Party. The 1940 and 1949 resolutions of the Regents, 1t mtght be argued. do not impose punishment. but me rely for_bi~ the employment of a member of the Party. Here the KeyiShlan an~ Robel decisions a re conclusive, making clear tha~ t?e den1a l of e’:”- ployment on the basis of me re mem.ber.shtp m the ~o~mum ~ Pa rty is unconstitutional. (Robel dtd 10volve a cnm~nal .sta tute , bu t the language of the opini~n also covers our s1tuatwn : the statute. said the Court. “contalfls the fatal defect of ov~r breadth because· it seeks to bar employment both :or association whi ch may be prosc ribed and for ss ociat o~ wh1 h may not be prosc ribed consistently with First Amendment n ghts. ) The 1940 and 1949 resolutions of the Regents are even more clearly unconstitutional than was the statute in the Keyishian case that dealt with membership in the Communist Party . ~nder t~e New York statute. party membe rship was only pnma fac1e evidence of disqualification for the prospective_ f~culty me~ber : under the Regents’ resolutions. such membership IS conclusive on the issue of disqualification. . The California Supreme Court’s Voge l decision quite. clearly applies to all public employees. Since the suit in questwn was a taxpayer’s suit . challenging the spending ~f. any County money on the enforc ement of the oath , the dectston d~s not rest on the peculiarities of one or anothe r type of public employme n_t. The oa th in the Vogel case was held invalid on its fa ce. not m any particular application . Commentary Administration Acts; SBA ? ? ? School Observes Viet Moratorium On October 15, the day of the Vietnam Mora torium, many Law school classes were cancelled , and those tha t were held were sparsely a ttended , as students a nd fac ulty interrupted their regular sched ules to ” Work for Peace,’ ‘ although at least one professor joked that the fourth game of the World Series was also the reason for cancelling class. by JIM BIRMINGHAM The constitution of the Student Bar Association requires the Association to divide the First Year Class into three sections for the purpose of electing delegates to the SBA Executive Committee. Following the path of least resistance (and , in most cases, the mdst sensible path ), the SBA has in the past simply accepted the division made by the Law School administration. This year the administration confushed the poor Executive Committee by breaking the First Year Class into four sections. As a result the Executiv,e Committee flunked its Con Law test. Their answer to the problem was that ” Four into Three Won’t Go” . The Committee decided tha t our Founding Fathers simply couldn ‘t have meant that the SBA should really decide how many delegates should sit on the SBA Executive Committee. Nor when they said ” three ” in the constitution could they really have meant “three’ ‘. Clearly they must have meant ” three or more” But, as always seems to happen, one dull fellow wanted to ca rry this interpretation to an extreme. In his naivete this delegate suggested that if ” three·· meant ‘·four ” when it applied to the First Year Class, it must also mean four when applied to the Second and Third Year Class. His fellow members laughed politely at the ” illogical extension .. of the doctrine . They became angered only when the clod appeared unrecalcitrant and pointed out to them that if they didn’t “” amend the constitution or by-laws one way or another they were actually allowing the administration to decide how many delegates were eligible to sit on the Executive Committee and which classes they would represent. Patiently the other members gently chided the idea that a student gove rning board really has anything to fear from the school’s administration making any such decisions. As a result the First Year Facts Clarified . (Con tinued from page· S ) Chairman of the Los Angeles Privilege and Tenure Committee. In the event you request such a hearing, this le tter will serve as a statement of charges, and you will have 14 days within which to file with the Committee a wri tten answer to the charges. Final action then wo uld not be taken until the conclusion of proceedings before the Committee.” On September 26 Professor Davis submitted to Professor La ties, Chairman or the Committee on Privilege and Tenure. her request for a hearing before the Committee, and forwarded a copy to President Hitch. therehy guaranteeing her status as a Faculty member of the Un ive rsity of Ca lifornia, Los Angeles until her hearing is concluded. On October 1, 1969, an eme rgency meeting of the Los Angeles Division of the UC Academic Senate was held and the ac tion taken in that meeting. and the important role played by Law School faculty members, is set out on page 6 of the DOCKET. Other actions taken by the Law School faculty since October 1 also appears in this issue of the DOCKET. Class wtll have four delegates on the Committee, while the Second and Third Year Classes will have three delegates each. And the present First Year Class will continue to have this advantage for all three years it is in school, if the administration returns to the three section arrangement next year as expected. To those who view SBA as a game, this is not a very important point. But to those who take seriously such activities as the recent re solution calling on Chancellor Charles Young to abide by the requirements of Due Process and not be intimidated by regental threats in the Angela Davis matter this disregard of the SEA’s own constitution is unfortunate. The facts are that despite an effort by a few delegates to make appointment to such faculty committe dependent upon a popula r election , the Executive Committee decided to retain that power in its own hands. Unfortunately, the committee ileglected to name David Ochoa , the Chicano’s choice, to the important Admissions & Standards committee. The Chicanos took their protest directly to Dean Murray Schwartz. Their solution is to have four students on this committee, instead of the present two. The extra two students wi11 be appointed ~ each from the two associations. If acepted , and how can SBA now logically protest, the school will have three student governments. It would then seem that the next step would be for the members of the Black and Chi cano groups to protest their having to pay dues to the SBA on the grounds that this would be double taxation for them since they pay dues to their respective associations. Reso luti ons . · – (Continued from page 6 ) dents of the futility of meaningless resolutions and we must begin to look for the rea l causes of repression both at the University and in the land . On the other hand , we must channel the anger of the so called ” taxpayer” against his real enemy. To do this we must deal with issues which he finds relevant and explore the ramifications upon his life of the current status quo. After he has dealt with the causes of inflation (not inflation ‘s scapegoat), for example , he will more likely be receptive to our ana lysis of campus unrest. This is so becuase the Regents, as is now no longe r a secre t, are integrally tied to this nation ‘s governmental, economic, and military heirarchy. (An under~ standing of friction thus facilitates an understanding of faulty brakes). Then, like all sound domino theories, one by one the grea t problems will come clear and all the bad guys will be run out of the land so the good guys can live happily ever after. Fat chance!

An affidavit by the Marin County district attorney links her to Jonathan P. Jackson who died in the attempt to kidnap Judg~ Haley and who, authorities say, brought the guns into the courtroom. And police have found a Black Panther newspaper which says that the day after . Miss Davis was fired by the regents she served as a “presiding judge” at a “people’s tribunal II and Sentenced numerOUS • “pigs,” including all establishment judges, · 11 to be ‘revolutioned to death.”‘ .
