SG Boycott Scores Speaker Ban; 300 in Picket, Rally at College Tests Called Off Due To Boycott

Protestors Brave Snow, Cold; 500 March At Hunter

Postponed midterms, cancelled classes, and a more crowded library, were some of the manifestations of yesterday's two J hour boycott at the College. Professors Milton L. Barron (Chmn.

Repeat Attack By US On Cuba Seen By Jones

The imposition of the speaker ban was protested yesterday by a two-hour boycott of College classes and ah estimated 250-300 students picketing in front of buildingss on — north and south campuses. " " At the same time at Hunter College in the Bronx, a picket line whose size was put at "about five hundred" by a police sergeant on the scene, staged a similar protest, culminating in a rally at 12 ROTO Pickets In Uniform dent reaction to the symbolic boycott. "We succeeded in our purpose — to call attention to the moral issue," he declared. He lauded the spontaneous rally, held directly after the picketing and without previous publicity, which more than 250 students attended. Many student-boycotters enacted tfiefr' protest "m the "reaQiiig rooms of the Cohen library. Onehundred-and-fourteen students on the first floor of the library at 10:30 AM yesterday said they were in there because of the boycott. One undergraduate who was

A repeat attempt to overthrow the Cuban government by US counter intelligence forces was forecast yesterday by a speaker at the College. Leroi Jones, a thin intense brown" man, with a short bristling beard made the prediction in a talk before the College's Fair Play for Cuba Club that roamed the political and poetical corners of the world. The twenty-seven year old poet, and New York City chairman of Fair Play stated that "we know the training camps in Florida, Louisiana and Guatemala have been emptied and that this is the prelude. "Even for a 'second class citizen' such as myself the way my country has lied about Cuba makes me ashamed." The author of "A Preface To A Twenty Volume Suicide Note" emphasized the dkSiotomy between "the fat and comfortable part of the world and those who live with poverty." "It is impossible for most of us to realize that everyone is not middle class, for we m this country have no concept of hunger. We preach about an 'Alliance for Progress' when . . . there is a mile and half of garbage outside the capital city of Chile that feeds ten thousand people." Mr. Jones noted that the same economic forces throughout the world had deposed Mossadegh in Iran. Arbenz* in Guatemala, killed Lumumba, and invaded Cuba. "As Senator Ellinder of Louisiana says, its safe for the cotton interests,' that way."

Estimates of the boycott's strength range from 15-30% of registered students. While this number ideally should have been much greater, we must not condemn the boycott as a failure. This would be far from the truth. With all of the extenuating circumstances taken into consideration, the packet showed a laudible degree of strength. Perhaps the only fair criticism is to call the boycott a let-down, judging from the temperament of last week's rally from which yesterday's action stemmed. Immediate action is desirable, but only when it is carefully planned. Something like a boycott is difficult to manufacture spontaneously, if it is to materialize in the desired fashion.

I urge all students to think a dozen times before they leave classes: such action will not help to change the mind of the Administrative Council and will result only in the loss of a semester's work for the striking student. Surely the students are aware, after the Thursday Rally, that many of the faculty and alumni are wholeheartedly with them in Banning the Ban. That evening I spoke from the same platform as Benjamin IDavis, addressing an enthusiastic Columbia audience larger, if anything, than our student group on campus. Mr. Davis pointed out that "all the gold in Moscow" cotdd not have given him the publicity that the action of the Administrative Council has. The Times and the Post are wholeheartedly with us. Student bodies throughout the country will help us. The Civil Liberties Union is with us! Let us maintain SUSTAINED AND CONCERTED ACTION. .John € . Thirhvall Professor of English

Dean Harold H. Abelson' Praises Education Courses ture and Organization. Ed. 32-33 received the highest general rating while Ed: 30 rated lowest, which corresponds witPwthe OP interyiew. Notably, there were considerable differences in mean ratings for the several instructors within each course. Professor PTaddow tried to reconcile the different results by observing that students in a group will generally conform to the prevailing opinion" whereas an a written questionnaire they will be more individualistic. Thus, he concluded that the Written survey was probably a more accurate reflection of student opinion. Dean Abelson, who feels that the Education department is "a little better than the other departments" explained that Ed. 30 is purposely constructed with relatively little content. "The purpose of the course is for the students to talk over the

serve the current practices," he asserted. "It is not intended to be filled with subjeot matter." He conceded that there may be too much content in Ed. 38. The Dean discussed various areas for improvement in the Ed. department and said that he felt more stress should be given to the basic concepts in courses "in order to interpret the mass of detail." The department, he noted, is moving in the direction of this more longrange approach, "but has not yet arrived." Field experience was recognized by Prof. Abelson as very valuable. He hopes to 'see the program expanded in the near future to include such areas as the Manhattanville housing projects. "The student should learn to understand the child in every phase of life," he explained. "In this way they will know the complete child." "Educational technology" is another area in which improvement is expected by the Dean. He noted that we are "on the brink of an instructional revolution. Self-aids, machines, television, and technologyin system and theory promise great progress in Education," according to Prof. Abelson. Professor Haddow - justified the existence of the "theory courses" (Ed. 30 and 38) by pointing out their long-range and holistic approach. "There are two kinds of: people in the teaching field, as in any other field," he explained, "those who are dedicated and those to whom teaching is just a job. For the 9 to 3 people," he continued,"the methods courses are sufficient. vThey are necessary to get. along ore a day to day basis.

Several students said they jGmed ROTC in order to enter the army with a commission rafiier than a s a private when dawfted. Only one student interviewed joined solely because of his "desire to be a soldier." Aside from fuifilling purely practical ends, many cadets fmd that ROTC experience bolsters self-confir' ^nce and poise and helps them to gain "a feeKng of importance."
