Washington (CPS) - A
group of rebel political scien
tists has succeeded In getting
the American Political
Faience Association to of
ficially encourage concern for
controversial social and
political problems.
The Caucus for a New
Political Science had
challenged the association to
replace its traditional
scholarly detachment with "a
radically critical spirit" about
contemporary "crises" and
"inherent weaknesses" in the
American political system.
the success of Caucus panel
at the APSA's convention
represents a victory for the
rebellious offshoot. It was
formed last year after the
association refused to even
discuss certain controversial
subjects, including opposition
to universities' revealing
membership lists of radical
campus groups to HUAC.
Caucus leaders feel their
work is not done, they are
seeking members, will con
tinue the push for relevancy,
and will publish a journal.
Plans for a program at next
year's convention on
"prospects for revolution in
America" are being made.
Panels arranged by the
Caucus at this session ex
plored urban politics, the 1968
elections, student unrest at
Columbia University, Viet
nam, Czechoslovakia, radical
political thought and the
Chicago Democratic Conven
tion. Selective Service Chief
Lewis Hershey held forth at a
session on "the draft and the
rights of conscripted
Caucus members also
pushed through a motion
prohibiting APSA officers and
employes from "engaging in
intelligence and cover ac
tivities." The decision was an
apparent slap at two former
leaders whose research firm
had received CIA funds.
The association approved a
declaration that it will "not
remain silent on threats to
academic freedom" and voted
to move its 1970 convention
from Chicago to another city
with . "an atmosphere con
ducive to free discussion." A

of the Methodist Chapel.
"No man Is an Island" will

The film shows the respon

the door to the black and the
responsibility of the black to
walk through that door.
The discussion will begin at

iefeated after heated debate.
In the Caucus session on the
draft, Lt. Gen. Hershey
managed to avoid or
misunderstand most of the
political scientists' pointed
Questions. His brief nrespn-
tation dealt with a history of
selective service. Several
times Hershey was booed and
hissed, as when he implied
that conscientious objectors
were "undesirables." He
refused to answer questions
concerning the length of
tenure as SSS chief.
IN THE session on the up
coming presidential elections,
professors Clinton Rossiter
and James MacGregor Burns
disagreed on whether a real
choice exists. Burns said
there is a difference between
the candidates, "but not a
decisive one." Rossiter said
no real choice exists, partly
because the candidates are
ignoring "cries" in the en
vironment, economy, war,
t e chnology, constitutional
government, and culture.
One APSA-arranged panel
dealt with the relationship
between "government, the
foundations, and
universities." President
James A. Perkins of Cornell
said the ties binding the three
must be loosened so they can
function best as critics of one
another. Rep. John Brademas
(D-Ind.), a member of the
House Education Committee,
predicted that federal support
of colleges will rise substan
tially in the next decade, re
quiring "more thought about
the nature, conditions and
shape of this support" and to
national planning for
balanced development of
higher education.
McGeorge Bundy, Ford
Foundation president, com
pared the role of private
philanthropic institutons to
higher learning as an oil can
to a very large piece of
machinery no large role,
but at times very important.
He said "the requiremtnts of
freedom and the inevitability
of diversity on the campus,
when considered with the
growing dependence of the
American University upon
national political decisions,
creates a major dilemma."
The amount of government
aid now, he added, exceeds
popular commitment to fede
ral support and has been
based on "good will and
trust." "There will be much
hard work before a truly solid

As they have been doing
across the country, the 450
SDS members did more than
talk ideology and strategy.
They acted and reacted to the
University of Colorado in
ways the school is likely to
feel for a long time.
A battle over press
coverage of the SDS meetings
may yet spawn a call by con
servative Regent Joseph
Coors (of the Coors beer
family) for the resignation of
the University's president.
IT WAS the New Left in
microcosm. The confrontation
portrayed SDS better than the
two major resolutions ap
proved during the three-day
NC. There was SDS, there
were the students, the Re

police and the press who
somehow all got sucked into
the controversy over whether
tape recorders and cameras
should be barred from SDS
Although the university
didn't come close to falling
and no outside police were
called in, there was a
polarization of administra
tion, students and virtually all
the press against the Regents.
The controversy stemmed
from the Regents' decision to

facilities if their meetings
were "public and open to the

The evolution of a radical
SDS concept of the new
society seems as unlikely in
the near future as mass
disruptions at Columbia this
year. Small-scale disruptions,
felling a university president
or killing a ROTC program
will probably spread to even
more campuses.
But one, two, three more
Columbias, if they are to be
inspired by SDS, don't appear
imminent as long as SDS is
loosely-defined and faction-alized.
