Transcript Richard Vogel speaks out for Hagen's retention at Sound-off, left. Below, Hagen supporters hold a closed meeting to discuss strategy to be used in their campaign to keep Hagen on campus and right, Keith Stanley, Daily Cougar reporter, interviews Kenton Pate before Hagenites go in to talk to Dean Neumann about Hagen's contract renewal. SU Petitions for Lower Fines; Hagenites for Reinstatement 1 ■ ■ Hagen supporters, above, stage a sign-in for appointments with Dean Alfred E. Neumann. Battling for Hagen's retention, Hagen supporters await the meeting with De-'n Neumann, right. 94 Two student groups unleashed fierce attacks against the administration making last spring a season of controversy. While Dr. Fred Hagen supporters slashed the administration for refusal to renew the associate professor of philosophy's contract, a student power group known as the Student Union, petitioned for lower library rates and an optional yearbook fee. The Hagen controversy hinged on a terminal contract signed by Hagen in the spring of 1967, agreeing to accept a non-renewable contract for the 1967- 68 academic year. The "Central Committee for the Retention of Hagen" confronted President Hoffman with a petition bearing 450 signatures in hopes of persuading the administration to reconsider its decision on Hagen's contract. The administration agreed to review the contract, but the Policy Com mittee issued an unanimous recommendation to the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences that its previous ruling to deny the contract be upheld. Functioning to make students aware of what is going on in the university community, the Student Union attempted to give the student body an alternative to the well-established Student Association. Three SA senators went so far as to sponsor a bill creating an independent student union to replace SA. However, the bill never returned from the Committee on Fiscal and Governmental Affairs. Applying action to their ideas, the union organized a campaign to have library fines lowered from 25 to five cents a day. However, the project, begun in a whirlwind, fizzled into silence as SU's cause ran into finals and summer. 95
