John W. Shirley became acting president of the University of Delaware in very difficult times. Experienced and mature just under fifty-nine when he took over the presidency on July 1,Shirley came to his task well-versed in the peculiar problems of a state university, both through his own education, crowned by a Ph. The times were difficult not only because of the student unrest that carried over into the fall of from the events of the spring, but also because the year marked a crisis in the feelings of the American people about the Vietnam War.

This was the year in which Lyndon Johnson decided not to involve the armed forces further in Vietnam and in which he also decided not to seek reelection. And at this critical time the university was forced to cope with continued rapid growth, its undergraduate enrollment of 6, in September being almost ten percent larger than at the opening of the school year. A faculty turnover rate of ten percent, much as it had been in the recent past, and an addition of over new professional members of the faculty and staff for the second year in a row meant that the faculty was in flux, a sizable minority newly adjusting to Delaware, many fresh from graduate study at institutions, like California and Columbia, disrupted by student insurrection.

Soon after the fall term began a portion of the student leadership carried its antiwar, antimilitarist feelings into an assault on the military training requirement. They distributed leaflets on campus declaring that the university was not obliged to make ROTC compulsory and calling for a meeting on this issue. Their spirit was indicated by another question on the leaflets: Do you want the University of Delaware to continue to run your life?

As a land-grant college the university was required to offer training in military science, but it was not required to make the study compulsory. It had done so for two reasons: first, if enrollments were not sufficiently large, the government would not provide instructors, and then the cost of instruction would fall to the institution, as it had before ; second, the university had hitherto accepted the opinion that Harter and other presidents had frequently voiced, that military training was of positive value to the students in itself.

The need for military training had, of course, been generally evident at the time of the two world wars. In the university was sufficiently large that the concern over having an adequate of students electing noncompulsory military training was no longer very great; as a matter of fact, the desiring advanced training, to qualify for an army commission, had recently doubled. Consequently, there was little opposition when the faculty responded to the student demand by removing the requirement in January But the anti-ROTC students had not been content to wait for faculty action.

After a Volkswagen bus marked "flower power" gave the al by pulling up beside the drill field, approximately thirty cadets walked off the field and at least as many demonstrators marched on, chanting, "The army has made us men. Few of the demonstrators were recognized by anyone in authority, but six of them were, and they were suspended. The Student Government Association promptly took action in their defense.

Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 thirty names were ed to the confession, a credible of demonstrators; however, it was generally understood to be no true confession, but only an effort to upset the administration, which first suspended most of the "confessors" on disciplinary probation and then relented, withdrawing the suspensions. One of the "confessors" was Ramon Ceci, the SGA president, who lost his office as a consequence of this action, for he reed, along with four other student officers, rather than appeal the disciplinary probation.

The disappearance of SDS influence in the leadership of the student government by no means meant an end to SDS influence on campus. The unofficial organ of this group was a publication called Heterodoxical Voice, printed commercially but edited from an office in the headquarters of the Presbyterian campus ministry on Orchard Road. The spirit of rebellion, Delaware-style which means comparatively low-keyedwas abroad. Graffiti, some radical and some obscene, appeared on the temporary framework erected to shield campus building operations, such as the large addition to Hullihen Hall that was under way.

A part-time student burned his draft card, drugs appeared on campus, as elsewhere in teenage America, and a drug raid was conducted on Brown Hall. Obscene leaflets Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 distributed condemning authorities. Demonstrators briefly occupied Hullihen Hall corridors.

In May an all-night sit-in was held at the Student Center in sympathy with students at Delaware State College, which had been closed by Governor Terry. Such events were the talk of the campus, of course, but they involved only a minority of the students.

For the majority, life went on as usual, though the dress code, revised by the student government, was in practice abandoned since it was not compulsory; other restrictions were also eased.

As Shirley explained to the trustees, students wanted 1 elimination of all dormitory regulations that restricted women more than men; 2 permission to entertain visitors of either sex in their rooms at all hours; and 3 liberalization of all regulations pertaining to extracurricular affairs, including the invitation of speakers to the campus.

If the university was to maintain no control over living conditions, he wondered whether it had any duty to provide residential facilities. Construction was begun on a new dormitory-dining hall complex the future Pencader Hall on land given by William Winder Laird beside New London Road, and other buildings were planned for the block facing the campus across College Avenue between Delaware Avenue and Amstel.

One novelty was the establishment of a student radio station. It took time for approval, including that of the trustees, to be secured, and still more time for funds to be raised. Another innovation was the creation of ten H. Rodney Sharp merit scholarships, approved by the trustees on June 8, Of varying amounts, they were to be awarded each year to ten entering freshmen on the basis of merit and regardless of sex, residence, or field of study.

They could be renewed for a total of four years and were supported by an allocation of funds from the Sharp endowment in an effort to attract especially promising Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802. Two days after the trustees approved this allocation from the funds he had made available, Rodney Sharp died on shipboard returning from a trip to Europe.

When he came to campus in as a sixteen-year-old freshman admitted on probation from Lewes, he was surely not the most promising undergraduate. When he died in it was acknowledged that no one in the history of Delaware and very few persons in the history of the United States had ever done so much for a university. Walter J. Beadle headed the first committee, and Edward H. Rosenberry English was chairman of the second.

After screening more than names of potential candidates and giving careful consideration to the credentials of several score, their choice was announced in May to be Edward Arthur Trabant, the forty-eight-year-old vice-president for academic affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology. Trabant, as he normally ed his name, had a somewhat broader university background than his immediate predecessors in the presidency, Carlson and Perkins, who were both almost entirely limited in their experience to large midwestern state universities—Carlson to Michigan and Minnesota, and Perkins to Michigan, except for a very short time at Rochester.

Trabant had done his undergraduate work at Occidental College, a small liberal arts school in a suburb of Los Angeles, and then had taken a Ph. His first professional appointment had been at Purdue University, and from Purdue, where he had become assistant dean of the graduate school inhe moved into Buffalo as dean of the engineering school, and then, into Georgia Tech.

Trabant took over the presidency at Delaware on July 1,exactly one year after John Perkins left the office.

At his first public appearance on campus, the new president called on the students, the faculty, and the administration to together in creating a new "Community De" for the university, with a structure recognizing the importance of the individual and providing the means for individual participation in and determination of the details of the de.

The working out of details for each unit of the university—division, department, or college—extended over several years; The Decade Ahead: The Report of the Community De Planning Commission was published by the university in two volumes in One by-product of the labor this report occasioned that was hardly accidental was the opportunity given to every group within the university to participate. This was probably of very great ificance in view of the internal Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 student body that included many students disaffected and in some degree rebellious toward the state of affairs, particularly in view of the chance that the men might be called out to fight far away in a very unpopular war; and a faculty that was one-fourth completely new in the fall of and that was to some degree alienated, either by the same causes affecting the students or by the authoritarian administration that had recently ended.

To get a measure of cooperative endeavor on a disturbed campus was a first priority at Delaware, and the new president saw this problem and attacked it immediately. He referred to this need in his inaugural address, which was not given until May 17, In this speech, Trabant quoted from a letter warning him that his task required him to be more of a manager than an educator; that it involved working with many groups—trustees, governor and legislators, faculty, and students; that he should allow increased faculty and student representation in running the university, while preserving its autonomy against outside pressures and still displaying independence and integrity in upholding his own beliefs.

What we need is someone who, because of his fairness and his willingness to make the University a better place by allowing all parties to contribute, will keep the bomb from being made in the first place. The reference to bombs was not mere rhetoric. It did limited damage, but soon campus life was disturbed at least as much as in the year by repercussions of the October interruption of the ROTC drill. Three faculty members had apparently participated in that disruption.

One had left in the summer of but the two who remained, Albert E. Myers psychology and Robert J. Bresler political sciencereceived notice in the following October that their contracts would not be renewed. Decisions about the renewal of contracts of nontenured faculty normally originate with departmental action, and such was apparently the procedure in these cases, but students were suspicious. It was charged by some students that members of this department were told their desire for support in establishing a doctoral program would be viewed favorably only if Bresler were let go.

It is impossible to analyze motives of the professors making this decision, as with any decision affecting tenure in a university. A faculty review committee that considered the Bresler-Myers case refused to recommend any reversal of the decision not to renew their contracts, and Bresler and Myers were forced to leave at the end of the year despite student petitions, editorials in the Review, "teach-ins," rallies, and even brief student strikes.

Bresler himself broke up a sleep-in at the Student Center in Decemberarriving there shortly after midnight when, it was said, students were gathered within the building and Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 more were outside. While committees, including student members, were getting to work on various aspects of the community de he had called for, President Trabant took the initiative in approaching another campus problem.

In the fall ofsoon after taking office, he called Frank Scarpitti, of the sociology department, to his office and asked him to be chairman of a committee to consider and make recommendations for the improvement of the condition of minorities primarily blacks at the university. Scarpitti accepted, the committee was set up with students, including whites, blacks, and an Asian among the members, and after many meetings through the winter months, a report was presented to Trabant in Marchincluding rather lengthy recommendations.

The report, known thereafter as the Scarpitti Report, suggested that the needs of minorities on the campus had received insufficient attention and proposed the recruitment of additional minority faculty and students, the establishment of a cultural center for minorities, and the introduction of additional courses on minority problems and achievements.

In time, all of the major recommendations were adopted, but not until after charges of neglect and racism were made. A hullabaloo arose early in after the faculty had accepted a recommendation from the t faculty-trustee committee on honorary degrees to award a degree to Charles L. Terry, Jr. As a former chief justice of the state supreme court as well as governor, Terry had a distinguished career, and the university had frequently awarded honorary degrees to Delawareans who held these positions.

But Terry had become anathema with much of the black community for his stern repression of the rioting that had followed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. He had ordered the National Guard mobilized to patrol the black neighborhoods of Wilmington in the spring of and had kept them there until the end of his term in Januarydespite requests of the mayor that they be withdrawn and despite one fatal shooting of a black by a guardsman. He had also forced Delaware State College to close before its term ended because of riots there in May These actions cost Terry black support in the fall ofbut they may also have won him votes.

He did lose a bid for reelection that fall, though it is possible that had he not been incapacitated by illness during the campaign he might have been reelected. At any rate, discovery that the faculty had voted him an honorary degree precipitated an uproar in which some faculty members—possibly some who had not attended the meeting at which the degree was approved—ed the black students and others in protesting the Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802. Fortunately for the peace of the campus, Terry, made aware of the controversy, declined the degree and avoided the possibility of an unpleasant demonstration.

Such a demonstration did occur on May 7,when a group of blacks from an organization called the Black Student Union interrupted the ceremonies on Honors Day, a day when various student awards are announced, including membership in honorary societies.

A temporary stage had been set up before the north entrance to Memorial Hall and an audience of faculty, students, parents, and friends was seated on the mall when a group of black students invaded the platform and seized the microphone to demonstrate their insistence that the university augment a recommendation made in the Scarpitti Report calling for the hiring of a professor of Afro-American studies.

Actually it was not an easy matter to acquire a trained scholar in this hitherto neglected field. Two efforts that the university made to fill this position turned out unhappily. The first appointee was an African scholar; the black students soon complained that his interests were far from theirs, that he had little understanding of the experience of blacks in America. Student representatives served on the committee that chose the second director, a woman, but soon students were complaining that they could seldom see her. It was learned that she also held another job at some distance away, and she left after one term, to general satisfaction.

The third head of the program, James E. Newton, turned out to be a happy choice. Newton, an accomplished artist, had been serving as an assistant professor in education; after he assumed direction of the program in black American studies, it acquired stability and respectability. Another recommendation of the Scarpitti Report, establishment of a minorities center, was finally carried out inwhen a residence on South College Avenue was converted to use for this purpose.

A resident adviser was appointed to counsel black students, who, according to a paper written by one of them, needed longer in adjusting themselves to university life than the average student. Besides the Black Student Union, formed inblack students also organized other societies, including fraternities, sororities, and special interest groups, like one formed of black engineering students. When the first black students were admitted to the university inas ly mentioned, no records were kept that identified the race of any student, and the Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 practice was followed after the decision in the Parker case that opened the university completely to all Delaware residents.

Briefly, black students from out-of-state, to whom the decision did not apply, were denied admission, but this position was soon quietly abandoned. Passage of the Civil Rights Act in pressed the states, through its Title VI, to demonstrate the desegregation of their educational systems, including higher education.

The Scarpitti Report had called on the university to see that there was black representation on the board of trustees, in the administration, and on the faculty. Arva Jackson, to the board inand a second black, Luna I. Mishoe the president of Delaware Statewas added by election of the board later in the same year.

A of blacks were appointed to professional staff positions, but no high administrative post went to a black until the appointment of L. Eudora Pettigrew as associate provost for instruction in The addition of black faculty was difficult because relatively few blacks were qualified for such positions, and for those who were, there was considerable competition among universities.

Probably the first black appointed to a full professorship at Delaware was Leroy B. Allen, a former college president, who became a professor in the College of Education in Although the SDS ceased to be recognized as a legitimate student organization after September and gradually lost its importance as a spearhead of dissent on campus, student demands and student unrest still absorbed much attention on the campus through the school year.

Student organizations united in pressing for adoption of a statement regarding student rights that had been drawn up almost two years earlier. The students specifically asked for freedom from any residence restrictions as well as from restrictions on the use and possession of alcohol by those over twenty-one. They wanted the right to establish rules for their own government in living units on campus and the power to allocate the use of money collected by the university as an activities fee. They also wanted a voice in the making of university policies, by representation on trustee committees and by participation in departmental decisions.

A modified version of their request was granted by the faculty in January Of course, the faculty could not make rules regarding the board of trustees, but the latter body, probably influenced by the appearance, though peaceful, of about 1, students at its December meeting, granted students the right to representation at its sessions and as observers on some of its committees. In the board began the practice of electing a very recent graduate to fill membership on the board for a term of one year.

Students were added to many departmental and faculty committees, though they were not given the right of voting on such matters as promotion and tenure. A new student government organization was given a large measure of financial independence, and Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 rules were greatly liberalized. Coed dorms Ladies seeking sex tonight Wilmington Delaware 19802 the norm rather than the exception. Restrictions on the use of alcohol were largely removed for those of legal age.

The effect of these changes in student regulations was to abolish most of the evidences of paternalism on the part of the university. As hostilities continued in Vietnam, antiwar sentiments on campus remained strong and were voiced in monthly student rallies, or "moratoria," as the SGA called these meetings, which were intended to supplant all other student activities. When the first moratorium was held in October it featured speeches by members of the faculty and was followed by a large candlelight procession, in which the Review estimated that 1, students participated.

Interest in the monthly moratoria faded in the winter ofbut in May the American invasion of Cambodia aroused the campus to feverish excitement again. A student "strike for peace" was declared on many campuses nationwide in an effort to bring pressure on the Nixon administration to withdraw from the war. The SGA voted for a strike and a mob of students gathered outside a faculty senate meeting in hope of winning support.

Faculty members varied in opinion from a desire to continue classes as usual to an insistence on ing with students in closing the university. News of the death of four students, shot by the Ohio National Guard during a demonstration at Kent State University on May 4, further inflamed the situation.
