Upward Bound At USF, A Program Designed To Help BY DIANNE STEPHANIS Oracle Staff Writer Frederick Dukes is a welldressed, soft-spoken 17-year-old who wants to become a neurosurgeon. Like most people preparing for their first year at college, he is. filled with eagerness and anticipation for what his freshman year will hold. But unlike the majority of. youths ready to enter college, Fred has no high school diploma. His high school career ended abruptly at the end of his junior year, when he took the Florida Twelfth Grade Test and received a score far in excess of the State University system's minimum requirement < 300 l for incoming freshmen. TWO YEARS ago, as a struggling first-year student at King High School, in Tampa Fred had trouble visualizing an end to his high school studies. In thursday's March 1972, however, his counselor at King, Elizabeth Taylor, became impressed with his potential for academic achievement and recommended that he enroll in USF's Project Upward Bound program. PUB is "a pre-college preparatory program designed for students who may have been disadvantaged economically or socially, to assist them in developing skills in fu9damental courses and to enable them to enroll in an institute of higher learning," Richard Pride, PUB director said. There are two parts to the program, which is funded by a grant from HEW and "a share of cost from USF." During the school year, underpriveleged youths may attend tutoring sessions each Saturday, to im prove their skills in basic sub jects such as math, English and reading. DUHil\"G THE summer, PUB sponsors a residential program to enable high school sophomores and juniors to live on-campus at USF and to take part in a com plete program of academic and social enrichment. The six-week program currently involves 130 students, who receive tutoring from high school teachers as well as from university students and professors. Aside from the academic program, the students have field trips and recreation activities to fill their spare time. The University of Miami, Florida Memorial College and Eckerd College recently sent over 200 people to USF to participate in the activities and to learn from the program, Pride said. Fred's enthusiasm for the extracurricular activities seems to exceed his desire to talk about his school work, but he did stress positivt!\y that he is going to Frederick Dukes become a neurosurgeon--and a good one, at that. ms BA('KGHOUND fulfills all of PUB's "disadvantagement" prerequisites. Brought up in the heart of Tampa's ghetto area by an adopted mother, Annie Dukes, Fred had to move to a Group Home in Seffner after Mrs. Dukes' death last year. Dick Pride framework <"I make friends easily"l--his case is not unusual for PUB. THE PHO.JEC'T, which in volves 25 high schools in Hillsborough, Polk, Manatee and Sarasota counties, has had "a number of kids who've shown improvement like Fred's," Pride said. Some of the schools to which PUB students. have gone are Yale, Massachusetts In stitute of Technology

The resolution was approved after all amendments to satisfy Nixon's objections were turned back. But the margin of victory was far short of the two-thirds majority it will take to override Nixon s now certain veto. so it is doubtful the bill will become law in this session. The war powers resolution was a product of the long. furious debate betWPf'n war critir:s in Congress and two U.S. Presidents over their authority to involve the United States in the war in Indochina. Phase IV Announced WASHINGTON WPil President Nixon announced yesterday that the current price freeze would end Aug. 12 and be replaced by "tough and selective controls which would generally limit price increases to cost in creases." The freeze, in effect since June 13 on foqd prices, was lifted ef fective immediately to permit the pass-throughc .of higher agricultural product costs. Watergate WASHINGTON Harry H.

Nixon Returns WASHINGTON -Gov. Reubin Askew said yesterday that he ordered double-tandem truck15 off the Florida Turnpike during daylight hours for safety reasons, effective July 1. The double-bottom trucks, considered a menace to traffic by some authorities, cannot use the Turnpike between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. But they are permitted to travel between the hours of 7 p.m. and 7 a.m., Askew said. f lorida news briefs Reubin Askew said yesterday he has asked Hillsborough County Circuit Judge Herbert Ryder to conduct a statewide review of "The Seed," a controversial treatment program for drug users. moving employes whose jobs are being phased out into the Spaceport Maintenance Division, at higher salaries than those now holding the maintenance jobs.

Alaskan Oil WASHINGTON Retired New York City detective Anthony T. Ulasewicz testified yesterday he investigated the sexual, drinking, domestic and social habits of President Nixon's op ponents .and other political figures at the direction of the White House. He said test checks by the Department of Transportation indicated there was no problem with the big trucks during the night time. "I asked for a review of the seed because of the controversy surrounding it," Askew said.

Cecil Mackey' s salarv is $2,862 more than that of Florida Governor Reubin Askew, according to figures releas e d this week by the Board of Regents BORl. Figures indicate that the salaries of University of Florida President St e phen O'Conn e ll and Florida State University President Stanley Marshall also exceed Askew s $40,000 a year salary. IIOWEVEH, BILL Thelan, personnel officer at the Governor's Office in Tallahassee, said Askew's salary doesn t in clude prerequisites additiona l h e ncfitsl given to all Florida governors. Thelan said the prerequisites includ e a mansion, two automobiles servants, a security force, "and other things. Mackey's current rate is $42,862, O'Connell 's i s $45,987, and Marshall's is a BOR spokesman said. Whe n Mackey came to USF in February of 1971 his salary was $41,:362, the same rate paid to USr"s acting-president, Harris Dean, and $11,:l 62 more than the 1 \J70 salary of John Allen, USF president from 19 57 to 1970 IWT WillLE Alle n s salary i s Task Force Eyes Confidential Info BY LINDA HLIMANN Oracle Starr Writc1 A task force appointed by the nine state university presidents will meet in Tallahassee tomorrow to make recommendations on the contents of university personnel files. The task force will determine what information shou ld be kept confidential. It may also recommend that some information be eliminated from the files John Weicherding USF's representative, said. CLIRRENTLY. personnel files contain job applications, appointment papers, recommendations, resumes and performance evaluations. Miscellaneous items such as letters critici zing an employe, a nd complaints and inquiries from creditors are also in the files. Under a recent ruling by State Attorney General Robert Shevin a ll qualification-related information in the files must be open to the publi c. However, the "limited access" section of the recently-passed Education Omnibus bill allows performance evaluations to be kept confidential. \VEICHERDING says he wo uld lik e the following information kept confident ial or removed from the files completely: l.l--Student evaluations of faculty. "Some dissatisfied students make comments that would be slanderous or embarrassing for the faculty. Most of these comments are irresponsible," he said. 2. )--Faculty peer evaluation s Faculty members might hesitate to evaluate one another openly if their opinions were publi c information, he said. "They'd be crazy if they did. It's too easy to get a community-wid e reputation as a hatchet man." 3. )--Police records. "They're irre lev ant except in the case of a n accountant w h o s been arrested or con victed for embez z ling Weicherding didn t mention records compiled on University Police officer.s. 4. 1--Anonymous letters and credit complaints.

Jackson Boughner, attorney for Susan Weitzel, had requested that USF compute the number of out of-state students with less than a year's residency.

. 4 -THE ORACLE Mackey Refuses Comment July 19, 1973 On July :!rd The Oracle ga\'e Pre s '.\lac key and Dr. Carl Riggs \'ice president for Academic Affairs. complete copies of an AAUP faculty conducted this year. Th e suney showed a marked decline in faculty confidence in both !\lackey and Higgs The Oracle offered to print any statement either man had con cerning the survey. Friday. July G. !\lackey said. I don't plan to respond. I don't think there's anything appropriate for me to respond to. That same day Riggs said ''I'd like to. but I'm awfully busy with the budget right now. I appreciate the spirit in which you sent the information over When offered an extra two days to respond, Riggs said he would try his best to have something by July IL Sl:\C'E TIL\T time. Mackey met \\'ith Higgs who subsequently with dr e w his off e r of a reply. It appears that onc e again Riggs must take a blast under a Mackey-imposed silence perhaps the same posture that led to the decline in the facultv s confidence in Higgs Silenc e on faculty matters or opinions is not conducive to the progress of academics and faculty administration relations. One of the major areas of dissatisfaction pointed out in the AAUP survey was the lack of communication between !\lackey and the faculty. Mackey's silence now certainly reinforces this point. Mackey must understand the desire by f a culty and students to be informed of his views on the University s reaction to his ad ministration. He has the power, he must earn th e respect. l lSF MUST BE administered into a top educational institution, not just a smooth-running administrative machine, staffed with "yes men .. In Riggs, Howell and others Mackey has well-qualified, recognized ministrative talent and experience. It's too bad he doesn't let them fulfill their roles. Many others with recognized academic value have left USF rather than be simply 'buffers' or 'rubber stamps' for Mackey. The Oracle feels Mackey either purposely, or accidently, has shifted l'mphasis from academics to ad ministration Hopefully, this trend will not continu e, for if it does the future of u SF looks gloomy. [Editorials & Commentary) Adm1n1strat1on Goes There appears to be a concerted effort on the part of USF's ad ministration to widen the gap between them and students The Oracle recognizes that SG does not give students individual representation, but we feel it does provide the collective representation that is needed when dealing with the administration. The administration seems bent on polarizing itself from SG completely rm .JOE HOWELL, vice president for Student Affairs last week suggest ed that the state university Vice Presidents for Student Affairs form a committee to look into rewording the section of the Board of Regents operating manual that gives SG 'it's claim to legitimacy Howell's proposed change will strip SG of its claim of fulfilling the BOR s directive that SG "shall" represent students Howell's change would make it an optional thing, saying SG "may" represent students, apparently at the descretion of the University. ALSO LAST WEEK, Howell sent a letter of eviction to the Student Finance Committee notifying them they must be out of their office in the ad ministration building by this coming Monday This is the only student office in the administration building where students actualy have input to the decision-making process Howell defended his move saying it would put SFC closer to the student accounts in the UC that it must monitor. SFC chairman, Tony Carvalho told Howell the move would not be beneficial at all, but the eviction still stands. SFC is the only means students have to informed information concerning the Activity and Service Fees, paid by students. Once SFC is moved, students sitting on the Planning Budgeting and Evaluation committee will have no source of information other than what the administration tells them on which to base their recommendations for allocations of student paid fees. MON l>A Y, THE administration formally defined the boundaries of the UC Mall. The new boundaries could force all student uses of the Mall to take place on the half of the Mall closest to the UC. IL would be far more secure for Mackey to simply dig a moat around the administration building; rather than declare most of the Mall area off limits for organized student use WHY THE i\DMINISTRATION is so bent on pushing a conflict is a mystery. It appears Mackey is determined to purge the University of all student input, on the theory of that students should be seen but not heard. We feel this is a bit myopic Students should have a say in the affairs of THEIR university. Until Mackey finds a way to have a university with no students, students deserve some role in the decision-making process. Lament: Bombs Fall On Cambodia Editor: I'm only a house wife with an eigth grade education, but when I see things like this in the papers, as you young ones would say, "It Blows My Mind." I see trouble everywhere in America, and we go ten thousand miles away to make some more. I'm writing this to you, because your generation is young and smart, and we really need good leadership in America. The problems my generation has left you through our stupidity call for courage on your part. Evelyn Marullo Editor's note: Ms. Marullo's letter was accompanied with newspaper clippings showi'ng a Cambodian government soldier carrying the head (letters] of a decapitated, disemboweled in surgent prisoner. The Government troops also ate the dead prisioner's liver. The clippings pointed out the $2, 700,000 < $2. 7 million) daily cost to taxpayers of US bombing throughout Cambodia. Gobbledegook_ Editor: There has been quite a bit of com ment about the recent Burger Court decision on pornography. A story in The Oracle suggested that some form of censorship might be needed for the SEAC films and the Film Art series. I doubt that it is needed. As I read the decision of the Court, three elements must coalesce, i.e., come together. And in the decision, the three parts are joined by the con junction 'and. (a)" ... appeals to the prurient interest," in the language of the day, this means to be turned on! (b)" sexual acts ... (that are) patently offensive," this means to be turned off Common sen,Se tells us that there is no way in which we can be both turned on and turned off at the same time by the same subject. But there is one area of experience where this. happens ---in works of art. Works of art (c)" ... of serious. .value." But to be pornographic, the work should NOT be of serious value. For many years, I was a career civil servant, working in Washington, D.C. The term used there to describe the official government documents of confusion is Gobbledegook. I suggest that the Burger decision is such a work. H.

THE ORACLE -July 19, 1973 5 .---u C Mall Limits "Defined'---us in the area. BY :\1.\RIL Y:\ :\I. E\'O:\ Oracle Staff Writer A surprise memo from Vice Pres. for Student Affairs Joe Howell's office defines and restricts the UC Mall and results in the further removal of the Student Finance Committee < SFC) from the a dm i nistration building area. .. What thi s means is that no one can be near th e administration building. SFC needs to be near the Comptroller's Office and USF budgetary in formation... said Richard Merrick. executive assistant to Davis. ('IL\RLES IIE\\'ITT. assistant to the vice president for Student Affairs, claims he wrote the memo at Howell's direction because. "it had come to our attention that the boundary limits of the Mall area are not clearly defined in the Student Handbook Lillian Yorks. scheduling and space coordinator and Space Committee member. told Davis that the designation of the Mall was "the kind of thing that the Space Committee should handle." left for vacation July 13 that a redefinition of the Mall area would be forth coming. "They have defined what can take place in the North area, I think they should designate what can take place in the South area," Lake said. Davis said that he was told by Yorks and "several others" that they nor mally define the Mall as stretching between the UC and the administration building. University policy states that student organizations may request space outside the Mall area for special func tions by contacting the supervisor of the building nearest the desired site and completing certain other procedures The memo, dated July 16 and carrying Howell's name, restricts the green area" between the UC and the administration building that may be reserved by student organizations from the UC on the north to the second sid e walk where the bulletin board is located on the south THE EAST and west boundaries are marked by the sidewalks running from the east and west UC patios to the se c ond sidewalk south of the UC. SFC was allowed to put up it s tent yesterday afternoon because the original tent request granted for the administration area was for a five-day period, which did not run out until Tuesday. THE SP A<'E committee did not have the Mall redesignation on it's agenda yesterday Later Albert Hartley, vice president for Finance and Planning, said "the space committee doesn't need to review the mall designation." HOWEVER, Davis said SG had spent the afternoon "unsuccessfully" trying to complete the procedure to request space near the administration building. "It seems that administration does not have a designated supervisor. As far as I am concerned the Mall designation is an attack on SFC, nothing more. USF has been functioning since its beginning without Mall limits, Davis said A ccording to Bill Davis, SG president, Helen Terrell, the UC reservations clerk received word from Creola Ragan, Howell's secretary, that the Mall limits had been changed. Terrell then informed Davis of the new ruling, and it's implication for the SFC tent erected to dramatize the eviction plight of the SFC. "There have been airplanes sports cars and tents full of radio equipments all o ver the Mall. Now that we put up a tent for the SFC they decide to restrict the Mall area," said Davis "Apparently Howell is not going through the proper channels set up by the administration," Davis said "In fact the memo is really a bogus one, it was written by Hewitt and Howell's name was signed to it by his secretary,'' DAVIS MAINTAINS that "their EHATION of Howell's eviction decision was probably put on the Space Committee's agenda as a "maneuver by Howell to absolve himself of responsibility for the move," Davis said Davis said that the reason the c ommittee wanted to decide on the eviction "in secret" is an obvious one: SFC will not have a chance to appeal the decision Pres. Cecil Mackey, who must give final approval to the decision has indicated he doesn't feel students belong in the ad m inis tr a t ion building unless "they are employed by him," Davis said CARVALHO SAID he has not decided yet whether he 'll comply with the eviction decision. "It's important enough to me that SFC not be moved and that it con tinues watching over student Activity and Service Fees, that I might not move out.

8 -THE ORACLE July 19, 1973 PE Courses Provide Diversity BY :\IIKE K.\SZUL\ Oracle Sports Writer Getting bored with the books'? Willing to trade the pencil and paper for a pair of sweat socks and gym shorts or maybe some swimming trunks9 Then. take a look at the fall schedule of Physical Education (PE l classes There you 'II find no less than 17 different types of athletic classes ranging from water safety in struction to weight training under the tentative fall quarter schedule. WITH PE NO longer a graduation requirement, Richard Heesch en, assistant athletic director said, "People who now enroll in classes are interested in a particular sport or want to learn new skills in it." Also dropped was the opportunity for students to take skill tests in various sports in order to obtain credit for them. "'\\"e discontinued it (tests l \\"hen PE \\ent as an elective. Back then we felt that if a student already had an ability in a specific area. it would be needless to require him to take ihe class. Now we feel a person should do more than that." Heeschen explained. llE S,\ID THE department supplies the equipment for all courses except skuba diving were students must provide their own mask. snorkel and fins with PE supplying the students with tanks, regulators, and air. Like skuba diving. life saving has a prerequisite for students. All students in life saving are required to swim an untimed quarter mile using any single or combination of strokes, one-half the width of the pool under water, and surface dive and touch the bottom of the pool. Skuba diving differs from Life Saving in requiring swimmers to complete a 600 yard swim instead of a 440 yard (quarter mile l. Students can also earn Red Cross certification in either life saving or canoeing. BEEFY \\"HH;JIT. lite saving instructor said, "I think we give a much more thorough course than the Red Cross does. We require more reading. have more lectures and use different ap proaches and techniques. We get our certification through the Red Cross and since I'm a certified Hect Cross instructor what I do is turn in the names of qualified swimmers to the Hect Cross to get national certification." Canoeing instructor, Sam Prather, said. "We go through the R e d Cross requirements when I'm teaching the course, Improvements Planned For Women's Athletics BY LENORA LAKE Oracle Sports Editor The women's athletic program will receive $5,000 more than last year and Jo Anne Young, women's tennis coach, said she plans to use the money to im prove existing programs. Last year the program received $10,000 for tennis, soft ball, volleyball, basketball, golf and swimming. "The most important issue is to beef up the programs," Young said. "FOR EXAMPLE, last year golf got $200 and swimming $1,000 but we need to triple golf and at least double swimming," she said. Young said she requested $12,000 for the program but SG Pres. Bill Davis said women's athletics requested $20,493. Young explained the difference was between her request to Dr Richard Bowers, athletic director, and what he submitted to Dr. Joe Howell, vice president for Student Affairs. Howell recommended only Jo Anne Young $10,000 for the program but Davis, in agreement with the Student Finance Committee (SFCl, wrote Pres. Cecil Mackey and requested an additional $5,000. "I REQUESTED the difference because of the huge disparity between men's and women's athletics," Davis said The men's program will receive approximately $150,000, Davis said. Young said she had not ./ received any "official" word on the budget allocations because Bowers is on vacation. "llE IS TO be back Monday and we will be able to sit down then and discuss it," she added. Young said she will use the money to cover cost of living increases, travel money for tournamerits and scholarships, if approved by Bowers. However, Davis said when he and the SFC requested the ad ditional money, they requested none be used for scholarships. DA VIS SAID "Misuse of the money will influence how much they get next year." However, Young said it is too late to recruit this year "as most the students have ali'eady signed with a school." The money could possibly be placed in a fund and held for next year's recruiting, Young said "In order to compete we are going to have to go with scholarships," she said. Young said the money will not be used to hire additional coaches for the women's teams. Autocross Competition Sunday USF's award winning Autocross team will compete i;:i the sixth of a series of 1973 Council of Tampa Bay Autosports Club championships on this Sunday.

But this is just part of ihe course There are a lot of other things we go into besides that in teaching canoeing, but the Hed Cross requirements I teach are the first step towards becoming a canoeing instructor Prather said canoeists start out in the indoor swimming pool and eventually wind up taking trips downstream on the Hillsborough Hiver and other bodies of water. llEES('llEN SAID USF's popular weight training program gives the individual a chance for some input. especially in deciding what type of program the student thinks will be most beneficial. "It all depends on what the student wants. He can build up strength, enhance his appearance, or take a program that helps his cardio-vascular system. The student decides what he wants and we give him the program that will help him in that specific area. After that it's entirely up to him to follow through on the program," Heeschen said. He added, "We get a lot of women in this program who want to firm up or enlarge certain parts of their body. And this approach does do these things with the proper use Oracle Photo by Tony Molina A Paddleball Tourney is being held as part of the summer intramural program.

"As far as I'm concerned, the matter is dropped," he said. "Sometimes it's hard to beat the establishment." HIGGS SAID "almost all the deans spoke up and took part in the development" of the decision, but noted no actual vote was taken He said the "only dean. that said virtually nothing was Dean l :C Bookstore wi 11 be closl'd 011 S;iturdavs for the rt'lll;1i11dt>r of th;, summer qt1:1rltr :1tTordi11g to .Jack Burns. l>11okslort' man;igu. l\1'g11i:ir S :1t11nf;1;. hot1r s will lw 1t'st1111t' d for I beginning :;q1lt'tllhl'r 2!1. the section as a place to list alternative requests, unaware that the time blocked out automatically overrides anything else on the form. THE SECOND major problem seen in the first exposure to computer registration involved the listing of alternates to desired courses. Goodwin said that a large number of students listed different sections of reqdred courses as alternates. Only one section of each course should be requested, he said. The computer automatically puts. students in different sections of courses once their requested sections have been filled. Listing the courses twice, Goodwin said, will prevent the student from getting either request. Should a student receive notice that his form was rejected for reasons listed above or others he should still go ahead and pay his fees and straighten the matter out during this week's computer registration period or during the three and a half day registration period at the start of Qtr. 1. ONCE ALL THE forms from the two computer registration periods have been completed, along with those filled out by FOCUS students, they will be processed together. Priority will be given only to a student's classification, not to his date of registration. The forms will be changed somewhat before Qtr. III, Goodwin said, to make them less confusing to students as well as to eliminate unnecessary in formation. Goodwin said that the elimination of the numerous cards at registration time has pleased him. "The cards have really been a pain to us, as they have to the students," he said. These and other inconveniences of the old style of registration make the computerized way seem a definite improvement, he said, even with the minor problems encountered. T -EMPLE TERRAC.

10-THE ORACLE July 19, 1973 Busted UP Officer Says It Was Misunderstanding Continued from Page 1 However, Morrow said he was "burned up" by the letter suspending him from the police force signed by Prehle, that said in part "you did unlawfully take, steal and carry away certain property (the TV set) (and) you did with the intent to defraud ... make a certain check payable to United Rent-All." Morrow said the letter didn't even give him "the benefit of the doubt" but just assumed he was guilty. The second part of Prehle's letter, according to Morrow, suspended him and mentioned an additional investigation being conducted concerning Morrow. The letter said Morrow was suspended "since there may be additional charges brought against you as a result of our investigation." Morrow said he had been unaware UP was in vestigating him and "didn't know what the other investigation could be about. I haven't done anything." MORROW DOES not deny his problems with the law in the past. "I admit that I've done some things wrong. Everybody in this country has done some things wrong. When I was coming up it was just that way. It was sur vival. You go to the grocery store to get a loaf of bread and you have to fight your way back to your family." Tampa police records show Morrow was arrested and received a suspended sentence for petty larceny in 1959 and forfeited bond on a 1960 charge of disturbing the peace. In 1961 Morrow was dismissed from charges of aggravated assault. A 50-DA Y suspended sentence was handed to Morrow in June 1964, on a conviction of occupying a room for lewd purposes. In December 1964 he was sentenced to a 50-day jail term for trespassing. However, while working out his sentence on Tampa city garbage trucks by day and jail at night Morrow escaped and was not recaptured until May 1965, when he was arrested for assault and battery and display uf a deadly weapon. The two charges were dismissed but 30 days were added to his previous sentence for the escape. In October 1965 Morrow received a 30-day sentence when found guilty of assault and bat tery. In December of that year he was arrested on one count of assault to commit murder and one count of assault to commit murder with robbery. While in jail awaiting trial Morrow charged with aggravated assault against a cellmate who sub sequently testified against him in the m.1rder case. At his trial in April 1968 Morrow was fgund not guilty of the two murder counts and the aggravated assault brought by his cellmate was dismissed. PHEllLE SAID Morrow was hired after the Police Standards Board reviewed his case and approved his appointment to UP in spite of his previous record. "The first time he applied, we said we wouldn't hire him. The stcond time he had 60 signatures (references l from citizens and law enforcement officers," Prehle said. He added Morrow's appointment was approved by former executive assistant to Pns. Cecil Mackey, Jim Clark. Bl'fore coming to USF Morrow was on Tampa's Community Hl'lations Commission a job he got httause of his work in Tampa's White Hats. The White Hats Wt'rt' a group of black gang ltadtrs organized by city leaders and ntdittd with quelling riots in Tampa during the summer of 1967 when various other areas of the country were stricken with violent ghetto disturbances. As a result of his work in the group, Morrow was asked to testify before a Senate Investigating Committee on riot control, civil disorder and community affairs. WHILE IN the Capitol Morrow worked for two weeks for Sen. Edward Kennedy who offered him a permanent job in Washington, according to Morrow who turned down the offer to work on the Tampa commission "where I could do some good at home." "The White Hat thing (work quelling race riots) turned my life completely around," Morrow said. "I saw the significance it did. It gave me a sense of responsibility. I was somebody. I wasn't just another person on the corner or waiting for the pool hall to open up at 11 in the morning." UP officers interviewed yesterday told The Oracle the arrest of Morrow and resulting publicity had as one officer put it, "really hurt the force's morale." ONE OFFICER SAID "The old man and he said that before we said anything he wanted us to know that anyone who didn't like it here (UP) knew where the door was. Hell, we got a grievance and he's telling us to hit the road before we can even talk to him about it. No one over there will listen to a man." UP Corporal Ralph Dennis disagrees with a charge by a black officer that the USF chapter of the Federation of Police
