The anti-war demonstrators were met at the consulate (which was closed for the week-end) by twelve pro-war counter demonstrators. There were no incidents at the consulate. The only incident occurred before the march actually started when a protestor had his placard ripped out of his hands and torn up. A complaint was lodged with the police on the scene but the cops took no action. According to protestors, the cops dismissed the incident. Ihe anti-war demonstrators carried signs reading "Stop Killing Vietnamese Babies", "Americans Get Out of Vietnam", and "Hold Hands, Not Guns". The pro-war placards read "Better Dead Than Red" and "Peace, But Not at the Price HI of Freedom". iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiittiiiiiirifiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiitiiiiiififitiiiiittfiiiiiiiitiiiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiitiitfiiiiiiiiiitttti'iMiit'ftiiiiiitif OSA Refuses To Die Support V/'elnai-ieic Malionalisn vWUiUlljpi^^i^ page 3 page 4 page 9 pages 10, 1 page page pages 14, pages 16, pages 18, 12 13 15 17 19 20 page UHilMlllllltlllllllMHIItMMMIIIIIIIMIItlllllllllllMtllllllllllllflMHIIIIIIIIMIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIttlllHMMIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIII BERKELEY (CUPI)—Close to 1.000 area policemen virtually occupied the Berkeley campus Thursday (Oct. 24) in order to prevent seething students from erupting into massive rebellion. Roving bands of students have moved from building to building in the last two days staging a series of sit-ins in protest of a lecture course given by black militant Eldridge Cleaver. Over 200 students have been arrested since Tuesday in the aftermath of police dispersal of sit-in after sit-in. An inside attempt to dissolve the Council on Student Affairs was defeated at a COSA meeting last week while chairman, C. W. Linton, chief academic officer in charge of student affairs, was out of town. Peter Faid, president of the graduate students association, moved that COSA suspend operations and that an ad hoc committee of the general faculty council be established to replace COSA. "Trying to prove the validity for COSA' existence is like trying to prove the existence of God," Faid said. Dr. T. N. S. Lennam. facul ty representative for Arts and Science, added, "COSA has no confidence as a whole by the student body." It is an amacron- ism to GFC representation. "Why not go directly to the higher authorities of the university?" In an interview following the meeting, Faid continued: "One wonders if COSA was an invention to prevent students from getting on GFC. "The qualifications for membership are ridiculous," Faid said. COSA is a 25-person committee with 12 student members, Di Marzo Chairs 'As Individual' Students council no longer recognizes the council on student affairs, but Luigi Di Marzo, president of the students union, chaired the last meeting of COSA. "Up to now I have, as an individual, accepted invitations to Vol. 9, No. 8 UOFC • Wednesday, October 30, 1968 INTREPID RENT-A-COP AT MONTE CARLO . . . shown with the gun that failed to tame downtown New York. (Photo by Stengl; gun by Smith & Wesson) attend COSA meetings," Di Marzo explained, "however, the motion which was passed by our council implies that I should not sit." Council passed a motion last spring denying recognition of COSA unless the students' union could decide student representation on COSA. Council vice presidents were asked about the possibility of Di Marzo sitting* as an individual on COSA. Vice President of External Affairs, Peter Chesson, answered, "It's not possible to sit as an individual. He's (Di Marzo) president of the students' union, and when he sits, it's assumed that he is president of the students' union. I don't understand why he sab— especially as chairman." Joe Horler, vice president of finance, felt that Di Marzo could sit as an individual, but "when he's chairing, that's pretty hard to do." "The only reason he's invited is because he's president of the Student's Union," said James Prescott, Vice-President of Activities. "He may be complying with the letter of decision (non- recognition of COSA), but he is certainly not complying with the spirit." Rod Mackenzie, Internal Vice President, refused to comment. Peter Chesson felt that Di Marzo should attend COSA meetings as an observer in order to keep council informed on COSA decisions. However, Di Marzo announced to press after the COSA meeting that he would resign from COSA. "After sitting on COSA informally during the summer, I have decided to resign from COSA, thereby cutting off any See Luig, Sits In Page 2 selected by the faculty societies and other interested groups on campus. The other 13 are faculty and administrators. Student council denies recognition of COSA because of its method of selecting representatives. Peter Chesson, vice -(»resident of external affairs for students council, commented on this issue at the last meeting of COSA. "The problems of student representation should be settled by students," he said. According to the Universities Act, students' council is the only legal student organization. Other issues surrounding COSA were discounted by Faid. "The terms of reference are bad," Faid said. "COSA is not what Linton and the advocates of COSA say it is." No official terms of reference for COSA exist. Establishing these terms has been one of the main items of business in COSA meetings since the general faculty council set it up three years ago. "It's ridiculous to establish a body and then ask it to decide what it's supposed to do," Faid said. A member opposing the motion pointed out that a report suggesting possible terms of reference for COSA had been submitted to that body last May. The report cited student discipline, approval of constitutions and by-laws of student (See Page 2) US Government Called Assassin (See other stories Page 20) Maryland atheist Madalyn Murray Friday accused the American government of murdering black power advocate Malcolm X, as part of a government policy of political assassination. "I have sources who can prove Malcolm X was murdered by the U.S. government," she said in a speech here Friday. "We practice as a nation, political assassination." Murray did not reveal her sources, but told her 1,000- person audience that her husband, Richard O'Hair, "probably knows more about American secrets than anyone par excellence." Her husband is a former FBI agent, with 25 years service in various security bureaus of the U.S. government. The assassination of Malcolm X, Murray maintained, was ia line with American policy. "America is a racist country," she said.
