main purpose is to open informed discussion which is

The pamphlet established the importance of the .

ventions such as the second Indochina War. The
Corps creates a massive supply of low grade officers "

argument suggested for the abolition of ROTC rests

them for the supply and training of military officers

Ironically, one of the defenses that adminis-

abolition would force them to become political. They

mb This is an ironic charge from a man
who has been accused by an AAUP com-
mittee, which has never had a repu-

academic freedom of two faculty mem-

made it clear that it rejects the
findings of one of the most conservative
groups of professors in the country.
Within the past few months, O'Connell
has fired Bob Canney, with no pro-

of conduct and would provide a "le-
