Dr. Lewis Wellington Cochran, vice
president for academic affairs, has been
associated with the University in some
officialcapacity since 1946. And he says he
has “never dreaded a day coming to
work "

“I‘m really one of the senior citizens
now. as there are not a large number of
people who have been here longer than l
have." Cochran, 59.said. “And that‘s very
helpful because I know from having been

His job has become somewhat annoying
lately, (‘ochran said, because ad—
ministrators must be more aware of due

treatment for everyone—which requires
more paperwork and reports.

“I don't think I can have a very good
view of the University if I just sit in here
and fill out papers. And paper doesn't

said. “One overriding thing you must
never let get out of your thinking——-that is
that we're here to educate students."

years since he was named vice president
have not experienced substantial in-

“It is overpoweringly the case
that those children who believed
that their parents were upset by
Watergate have a far more
negative view of former
President Richard Nixon than
those children whose parents
were not." said Dean Jaros,
political science professor.

Children's views about Nixon
stem from their parent's reac-
tions about the whole Watergate
scandal. Jaros said, He obtained
this information through a recent
study of 918 children from two
Eastern Kentucky counties.

of registered Republican
parents) tended to view Nixon

less favorably than little

“That is to say that kids who

Fighting the elements (criminal, that is)

“The average person is not going to
be exposed to this, just the criminal
element. The law abiding citizen will
have nothing to worry about because
we are not going to bother him.”

Sound like J. Edgar Hoover
discussing the virtues of the federal
no—knock law? Or maybe Richard
Nixon defending wiretapping? It
could have been either, but it‘s not.

Actually, the quote is by Joe Catt,
media liaison officer for the Metro
Police. He was defending efforts by
the local police department to obtain
electronic surveillance equipment,
specifically a microphone, receiver
and tape recorder. The equipment,
which would cost the city over $4,000
is supposed to help the police in
narcotics cases.

Letters to the editor

Last night the Urban County
Council discussed allocating money
for the equipmenta nd decided to have
Chief Administrative Officer Dean
Hunter draft some regulations on how
the devices could be used before
voting on the proposal.

It is encouraging that the Council is
being cautious about buying the
equipment, because the potential for
abuse of such equipment is great.
despite what Catt says.

The argument that only the
“criminal element” need be fearful
was advanced by proponents of the
“no-knock" provision, which gave
federal investigators the right to
enter a residence unannounced if they
felt that contraband would be
otherwise lost. Several widely
publicized cases of federal agents

terrorizing innocent people showed
that other than the “criminal
element“ did indeed have grounds for
fearing the provision.

Surveillance equipment can also be
used against non-criminals, even
unintentionally. Information of a non—
criminal nature can be used for
political blackmail, for instance. But
beyond that, the issue is one of a right
to privacy. Simply put, whenever the
government starts secretly recording
conversations it is an invasion of
privacy. The question becomes one of

Is there sufficient justification in
this case? Catt said that “our people
will be better protected if they are
using this equipment."

Catt said the police have had
contact with gun-toting drug dealers

from Cincinnati and “sometime they
may decide to come down on one of
our officers. Our people will be better
protected if they are using this
equipment. ' '

The surveillance equipment may
help catch the offender if someone
attacks an officer, but it is hard to see
how it will offer any protection unless
the potential attacker knows he is
being taped.

In our view, purchase of this
equipment is not justified. It not only
offers little real protection to police
officers, but it takes the wrong ap—
proach to the problem of drug abuse.
if dmg abuse is ever effectively
countered. it will not be because of
law enforcement. no matter how





Capitalism wrongly accused of propagating racism

I read with delight Russell
Pelle’s “A Socialist Analysis of
Racism in Boston" (Comment.
Friday, Feb. 7).

While some of the conditions
concerning the Boston situation
that Pelle cited may be true. I
find his last sentence to be very
amusing: “It’s easier for them
(politicians) to claim that the
demands of black people are

unreasonable than to admit that

capitalism is incapable of ending
black oppression." It seems that
Pelle has forgotten that capital
ism is an economic system for
free production, buying. and
using of economic goods and
services — not a political system.
Our political system is in charge
of the schools. To expect an

The National Conference on
Racism convenes in Boston
today. Proponents of the con-
ference have characterized the
meeting as preparatory to "a
massive response" to a
phenomenon which conference

as “the racist offensive in
Boston.” The group at the
University of Kentucky has
sought help in mobilizing “an

to “help us send a UK

will beopen to all who agree that

“The racists must be
defeated." Now, ain’t it the truth

about human relations. After all,

Blacks in history shrouded in mystery


The second week of February com—
memorates a portion of our society that
has long been overlooked in American
history - the black population.

No one can measure the influence or the
impact ofhistory on the minds of people. It
is a safe assumption that the kind of
historical treatment w or the lack of it —
which the American black has received
has aided in establishing and perpetuating
racial discrimination. The omission of the
deeds and accomplishments of blacks
from American history books has served
to reinforce notions among whites of their
superiority and among blacks of their

Busing: Racial mixing
is not racial equality

('ontinued from Page 2

Desegregation in the classroom insures
neither racial equality nor quality
education. The Supreme Court decision of
1954 censures the practice of assigning
schools to children on the basis of skin
color to promote segregation. However. it
cannot be assumed that it is morally
proper to assign children to schools on the
basis of skin color to promote
desegregation. Many blacks perceive
busing as inherently demeaning in that it
suggests they cannot be equal outside the
presence of whites in the classroom or

Integration must mean more than the
quantity of bodies, it must also include the
quality of experience. The Supreme Court
subscribed to this concept in its opposition
to busing to achieve an arbitrary racial
balance as stated in the “Swann vs. the
(Tharlotte—Mecklenberg. NC. Board of
Education“ decision.

The notion that racial mixing and racial
equality are the same dies hard. A
minority in an alien and hostile cultural
and educational environment enjoys
something other than equality.

The assumption that injecting white
influence will salvage what has been
typified as an inferior system of black
schools has not been borne out by ex-

In the seminal Brown case. NAACP
attorneys argued that de jure segregation
resulted unavoidably in handicapping
achievement potential in blacks. Black
schools damaged black kids. The resulting
conclusion was that equal schools and
equal students are the same thing. In the

November, 1974issue of Society magazine,
David K. Cohen deduces from the Coleman
report. “Equality of Education Op-
portunity.“ that “the educational impact
of desegregation...never came close to
eliminating achievement differences
between blacks and whites.” People from
black cultures competing in institutions
using white criteria and perspectives
against people from white cultures
guarantees anything but equal op-

According to a 1972 Newsweek poll,
conducted by the Gallup organization, 66
per cent of the American public favored
desegregation of public schools, yet 69 per
cent were fully opposed to compulsory
busing to achieve desegregation at that
time. Conceivably, those people shared
some of the motives felt by 13 of 14
Bostonians who opposed busing in a recent
referendum on the issue.

Many families have worked hard in
order to afford a home near a quality
school, within the district. Seeing their
achievements negated by court-ordered
busing, they are naturally resentful.
Parents feel concern about getting to a
crosstown school quickly, easily and safely
should they need to go there.

People resent being treated as ex-
pendables in social experiments and feel
that children should not bear the brunt of
integregation; those were children in the
buses which were stoned. No one condones
violence agsint children.

Anxiety about the control and access of
the ‘ncighborhood school' remains a stark
reality.not a mere mask for racism. If one
accepts the premise that black schools are
inherently inferior and that busing will

In the field ofmedicine, Dr. Daniel Hale
Williams performed the world’s first
successful open heart surgery, while Dr.
Charles Drew’s discovery of blood plasma
led to the establishment of blood banks.
Unfortunately, Dr. Drew’s research did
not help him. He bled to death from injuri-
es received in an automobile accident
because the nearest hospital was for
whites only and would not admit him.

In history books, the black woman is
usually portrayed as a nurse to white
children. She too has done her share in
creating American history. Five black
women helped Clara Barton nurse
wounded Civil War soldiers. The first
woman bank president was black. In 1872,
Charlotte Ray became the first woman to

THE ADVANCES of blacks in theater.
literature and music are well known.


equalize opportunity for blacks, it is un-
derstandable that whites feel threatened.
Color has become the equalizer.

The people of South Boston cite yet
another reason for refusing busing: the
danger of crime in the black community of
Roxbury, the area from which school
children are being exchanged. The Oc-
tober, 1974, National Review reports the
murder rate in Roxbury is twice that of
Southie. Rape is five times as frequent.
There were 921 instances of armed rob-
bery in Roxbury compared to 50in Southie
during the same time, 1,196 compared to
246 incidents of breaking and entering, and
457 to 12 reports of purse snatching in the
two areas respectively. Although Roxbury
is more populous by far than Southie (not
less populous as one UK leaflet wrongly
asserted) it is also more dangerous. It
little comforts the parents of South Boston
that most of the crimes in Roxbury were
committed by blacks against blacks.

The supporters of the racism conference
have conjured up a “racist offensive“ in
the anti~busing movement. The “of—
fensive“ is actually a frustrated response
to a social tactic imposed despite over-
whelming sentiment against it, by the will
and at the discretion of a single appointed
judge against whom the citizens have no
ready respite.


Hovever, few people know that Virginia’s
state song, “Carry Me Back to Ole
Virginia,” was written by black composer
James A. Bland. Alexander Pushkin, the
Russian poet, and French novelist
Alexander Dumas, author of “The Three
Musketeers” and “The Count of Monte
Criste”, both were black.

Originally, Black History Week was
primarily observed in black schools. Since
schools are now desegregated, many
young black children will never know the
contributions of their race to American
history. This fact makes it even more
urgent for blacks to be included in
American history books. Knowledge 0‘ the
role of the black in United States history
will help all Americans understand just
how great the accomplishment from
slavery to freedom and from freedom to
equality has been.

District Judge McGarrity, author of the
Boston desegregation plan, is considering
a more moderate version of his wide-
reaching Phase II which will effect a
projected 93,000 students to take afiect in
September this year. The judge is con-
sidering exempting some of the more
isolated white suburbs from the busing —
suburbs like Wellesley where he and his
family reside.

Whether the prospective conferees are
unaware of these aspects of the situation
or unable and unwilling to cope with
anything more than the good-bad, right-
wrong version which they have concocted
independently of the facts, it would not be
surprising if their reception in Boston is
less than enthusiastic. U.S. News & World

problem is one for the city itself to solve. '

Ford says he won't stop
food stamp price freeze

WASHINGTON (AP) » President Ford announced Thursday he
will allow to become law without his signature a bill which freezes
the price of food stamps through 1975 at the ‘ievel of last Jan. 1.

About 17 million food stamp recipients would be affected.

At the same time, Ford chided (‘ongress for rejecting his
economy moves without coming up with acceptable alternatives. If
this continues, the President said, “an unthinkable deficit will
result and there will be no mistaking where the responsibility lies. "

The Senate completed congressional action on the food stamp
freeze legislation a week ago. In both branches of Congress, the
margin on passage was far over the two-thirds majority required to
override the veto. The House vote was 174-38 and the Senate vote
was 76-8.

Ford issued a statement in which he said the stamp program
originally cost $14 million a year but that in the 13 years since it has
grown to $3.7 billion He said that without the reforms he
recommended spending could reach $8 billion by “380

He estimated that his proposal would have saved the taxpayers
$650 million each year
