The Senate tabled a motion con
cerning the report on Mitchell
from the Committee on Academic
Privilege which was made by pro
fessor Charles Patterson.
Patterson's motion reads as fol
lows: "In view of the finding of the
Committee of Academic Priv
ilege with respect to the viola
tion of academic freedom of
Professor Mitchell, the Univer
sity Senate charges the Commit
tee on Academic Privilege to

may threaten academic freedom
The Senate approval of Dow's
motion comes after over a year
of hearings, deliberations and
study by the Committee on Aca
demic Privilege and Tenure which
conducted an investigation into ac
cusations by former professor of
agricultural economics, Dr. C.
Clyde Mitchell that his academic
freedom had been violated.

ported three of eight charges by
Dr. Mitchell that his academic
freedom was violated.
Dow's explanations of the mo-
ion he presented from the Aca-;
demic Privilege Committee and i
which were incorporated into the j
J original report on Mitchell, are I
I as follows: j
1 a. The Report contains a j
' statement of principles, and it j
is our belief that it is desirable j
that these be approved, if that
is the consensus of the Senate,
to be used as guides in any
future cases that may come be
fore the Committee.
We believed it would be even
more desirable if both the Sen
ate and the Administration would
agree to adopt these principles
as guides to future action, with
out unfairly compromising the
position of either.
We had supposed that the j
Liaison Committee would report !
on this problem. When it be- j
came evident that they were not j
going to do so we determined !
.to raise this issue directly. We j
appreciate the fact that any j
statement of general principles j
is subject to interpretation. In
