Page 1: The title sheet depicts a caricature of presumably President Jensen holding the giant head of Coach Dee Andros in a satire of the Farnese Atlas statue. Page 2: “Faculty Senate” An account is given of the deliberation of the Faculty Senate during a meeting the previous afternoon. During the meeting, Fred Cervantes’ proposal was rejected in favor of the “Administrative Proposal.” Continued on Page 6. Page 3: “What Place Athletics?’ A review of the Athletic Department is announced, as ordered by the Faculty Senate during its meeting the previous afternoon. The Senate cited concerns about the department’s relationship to the university after Coach Dee Andros expressed the intent to ignore any university ruling not supported by the majority of his players. “Barometer to sue Scab Sheet” The Barometer editor’s announcement of a lawsuit against the Scab Sheet is responded to with the quote that “truth is the best defense against libel.” “Broken-hearted Melody…” A reply is given to a Barometer article written in response to an earlier Scab Sheet article (Vol. I, Issue I, Page 1) criticizing the lack of contact with the Black Student Union over an all-school convocation. In the reply, the Scab Sheet reaffirms its original printed view. Continued on Page 4. Page 4: “Broken-hearted Melody continued…” Defense of the Scab Sheet article attacked in a later Barometer article continues. “Administrative Proposal… Revised” A slightly revised version of the Administrative Proposal is given in a statement by the Faculty Senate, as passed during its session the previous afternoon. “Fraser Raps…” Mr. Fraser defends his voting record, claiming that he did not realize that a vote to Coach Dee Andros was also a vote to “give him the powers of a dictator.” He goes on the record as stating that he would like to change his vote. “Who Rules OSU?” The Athletic Department is criticized for contradicting the intent of the President’s Commission on Human Rights, specifically due to the Athletic Board’s reaffirmation of the power granted to the coaching staff. Page 5: “Boycott Must Continue” The Faculty Senate is praised for taking action, but is also criticized due to an apparent contradiction between the two proposals presented. President Jensen’s proposal is criticized in further detail, and using such evidence as justification, the boycott is encouraged to continue. Page 6: [no title] A description of events from the Faculty Senate is given. [Note: This article appears to be a continuation of another article.] “Helms Raps…” With information from Karl Helms, Jensen’s assistant on minority student affairs, it is revealed that black athletes in the Pacific 8 Conference will continue to boycott OSU. “Boycott goes on...” It is announced that the boycott will continue, citing a statement by the Students for Action Committee. A pre-game rally is announced for Friday night at 6:30 in the MU Ballroom. [no title] A small blurb announces that sources indicate the impending resignation of Dee Andros, with further details expected later.
