The emergency antiwar demonstrations in New York and Los Angeles will be a powerful response to Nixon's escalation: of the war in Southeast Asia. Never before has an explosion of antiwar protest by the American people been so crucial. The Ameri can people must force Nixon to stop bombing now! The antiwar majority in this country must demand that every u.s. soldier, plane, and piece of equiptment be brought home now! We can end this war if we redouble our efforts to mobilize the American people. A massive outpouring on April 22 wUl make clear the message of the antiwar majority: U.s. Out of Indochina Now!

Smcerely, Sen. Mike Gravel ---Diala-Service Detroit--A free service to help both women and men find expeit advice and in the field of sexuality and reproductiCil has been launched by the FowdatiCil for Populatia:l Balance, according to its executive director. In their annol.Dlcement, it was noted that the most urgent and fre quent );&'Oblems conceming sexuality and mvolved primarily the area a pegnancy, in terms of Adoption, Family Planning, Contraceptions, Aborti011, and Voluntary Sterilization. "Everyan.e is aware of a dial-a-service SQch as those dealing with imminent crisis problems. But whom does a man or woman call to find help with problems a human sexw.lity and rep:oduction7 Most people do not have easy access to sound advice, emotional support, and expert help such problems require. They tend to find help or luckily thro1.1gh a sympathetic minister, doctor, friend, by word of occasion via a public and private agency specia in a specific problem.

'Ibe Detroit-based Fotmdation first undertook a trial local hot-line referral service. The test so successful that the approach begun in Michigan will now be available in an additional65 cities m 37 states. A directory, inclu:ies hot-lines in lprge metropolitan areas, Detroit, for example, and in smaller towns, Scranton, Pa., or Bismarck, N.D. A majority of the people who called for help during the x;reliminary trial of the phcme referral service reported the following circumstances: *They were single, pregnant, and determined to have the baby and required help from an agency dealing with the unwed mother. *They were single or married and pregnant, had already elected to have an abortion, but were concemed about obtaining good medical care and not being financially exploited. *They were women who wanted to put their babies up for adopticn. *They were couples and individuals who had decided on or wanted authen tic :infonn atiCil about sterilization. *They were men and women eager to become actively involved in reforming restrictive abortion and voltmtary sterilization laws. While a surprising number of calls were received from men, the phone service was }rimarily consulted to obtain pregnancy referrals and to leam about appropriate medical facilities 1hat provide safe, and inexpensive abortions. Abortia1 reform by legislation was the next most important concem. Because of this focus on pregnancy problems the service was uamed "The Pregnancy Advisory Service". Only referral services will be tx"Ovided by trained telephone operators. For each problem, they will be able to provide a choice of medical or non-medical refe1ral either to a private or public facility or agency. IS for CA\.C. PHOS IA.ON CAR&. PRoT, fJ\T o.o.r.

To the Editor: There must be something insidious in the nature of groupe which causes faculty members to become small-minded as scxm as they band together, smce taken one at a time they seem reasonable enough. The firmg of Dr. Shartar, certainly not in the interests of students, was only one of the more recent a the disservices perpetrated, If there is some reason that the Humanities Division feels disinclined to grant Dr. Shartar tenure, and they obviously do, then they should arrange to retain him in some other way. Stu:lents otherwise will be denied the presence a a capable educator whose will leave a gap in the offerings of the humanities division. Because it is unlikely that a more able replace-ment will be folmd, one is I ead to suspect that the motiles of all those voting was not wholly high-minded regard for the welfare of students. Indeed, one does at some point leam that the school is not especially rtm for the benefit of the students, 1t represents more a fiefdom of the few. A few people are doing well materially through their relationship with the school and the rest are survivmg ndcely. Additionally, they have the ego satisfaction of governing without the disadvantage of accountability. They can, witli imptmity, abstractly decide that o n e way of operation is best and never bother t o check that assumpticn a g a inst reality. Blrring an outburst of student dissent which is unlikely a t so unpolitical a place as New College, there are no effectiv e checks on e jstra on .And as the students have not been vocal it has not occurred to them either as a whole, m committee, or, save a few, individually, to fulfill the responsibility of govemors: that is, to consult the govemed. A distinction, -here; teachers and as institutional policy makers is necessary. Success in performing the former role may well be accompanied by failure in the latter; and I think that this is the case. Students have failed to articulate their interests and are thus partly responsible for the nonsense which charact erizes New College discussion. The faculty, for its part, has not encouraged students to think through the situation nor encouraged them to speak. The administration, with a few exceptions, does precious little except find some new way to hit us for an extra one or two hundred dollars every spring. Small-mmdedness, coupled with silence and inactivity, has rotted mt:ICh of New College. Ratia1ality and full public discussicn would seem to be some of the missing factors. Daryl Laatsch To the New College Organ: In support of David Silverman's letter: I am back to New College last week to sort out some files and contract for a summer ISP CC1ly to find that my sponsor Martin Shartar had been denied tenure and had, therefore, had his contract terminated. At first I could not believe it, then I got very angry and, fmally, after seeing a few faculty members, decided I could do nothlng about It and must leave it alone. It was happening again. Throughout the three years I have been at New College, I have altemately supported it, left it in and retumed in hope. There is much potential in New Couege, but, unfommately, very little being used; it is rapidly becoming not a "tmiversity-without-walls" but a canventlcmal, unimaginative institution. Maybe "they" are right, maybe there is nothing I can do as a student in protest, but I am pleading here for an idea--l car too much for New College, and what it can represent, to just keep quiet and watch every hope get scrapped, These professors who have been denied tenure, Martin Shartar, Rita leposky, and Marshall Barry, are very much a part of that "idea";--the idea that New College is a place where students, faculty and administraticn are agreed that to create and atmosphere of unstifled leaming is the J:rlmary concem. I would feel somewhat less helpless if 1 knew some reasal for the dismissal of these .,-ofessors--then, at least, I would have someth.ll.g r.a.ugible to fight against, --but no one seems to l
