Dean Is Attacked
For Viet Stand
The dean of Colorado State College’s School of Edu
cation came under attack last month for using the faculty
bulletin to solicit support for administration policies in
Vietnam, the CSC “Mirror” reports.
The executive committee of the local chapter of the
American Association of University Professors (AAUP)
termed the action of Dr. Edward Kelly a “direct violation
of academic freedom.”
In the bulletin, Kelly said, “In order that the President
of the United States and all America as well as other nations
of the world and our servicemen everywhere, but espe
cially in Vietnam, may realize that many professors through
out the land support in principal (sic) our nation’s involve
ment in Vietnam, it is proposed that the President be sent
an indication of that support.” Kelly said he gathered 25
signatures in four hours after the bulletin appeared.
The AAUP committee’s statment upheld “the right of
faculty members and administrators to take political
stands.” The committee objected to Kelly’s action, how
ever, because it amounted to “official” solicitation of a dean
requesting signatures from his subordinates.
“The request for naines of faculty members,” the state
ment read, “many of whom are responsible to the dean for
salary increases, promotion, and tenure, is coercion in the
form of a loyalty oath. Faculty members refusing to sign
this pledge profess to the dean their political dissent even
if they do not care to do so.”
But what would a professor be doing teaching in an
American college in the first place, if he could not sign a
loyalty oath to the United States?
As for Dean Kelly, we say its about time someone
took the initative to back his own country.
Three members of a south Tex
as family received degrees Satur
day at Texas A&M.
Joe Marshall Ernst, his wife,
Susan, and Joe’s brother, Her
bert, collected sheepskins. They
couldn’t be happier.

“It’s a happy ending to a finan
