Transcript Controversy reared its ugly head last spring as the Harvest and the College of Architecture became topics of heated debate. Harvest Editor John Barrett, right, mulls over the "censored" poem at the Publication's Board meeting. The "midnight sculkor" strikes again, far right, as architecture students wage an op art and grafitti battle against the administration. Dr.'s Patrick Welch and Patrick Nicholson, below series, count the ballots which restored a vote of confidence to the Harvest editor and left censorship to the staff's discretion. The infamous fence, below, stirred up a battle between archies and technology students who objected to the op art grafitti. LI Attention admihist^a tors: oom't thihkth& THING IS GO*NO TO DIE C*«.THEBEStStUX T!!•'!••: T'< Q0\W< «£L£» 96 Architecture and Harvest Rebel Against Administration The College of Architecture blazed a trail of grafitti riddled protest last spring as they challenged the administration's stand on academic freedom. Rebelling against Dean Eugene George's "out-dated concepts" as opposed to "free school" ideals, archies mounted a flagrant campaign to oust George from office. The students' big grievance concerned architecture teaching methods . . . should architecture be taught like engineering or should courses be given more artistic latitude. Threatened with the loss of national accreditation, the controversy gained headway when students presented the visiting accreditation team with a list of grievances levied against the administration. However, the architecture students' attempt to make academic freedom a reality was postponed until June when the accrediting team releases its conclusions and the administration reevaluates the existing situation. Meanwhile, a poem written by architecture Lab Instructor Kenneth Carbajal caused university censorship of the campus literary magazine, "The Harvest," and its subsequent non-publication for the first time in 32 years. The poem, containing a controversial four-letter word, was refused publication on campus. It could not be printed off-campus because a clause of the Student Publication Bylaws was interpreted to restrict publication to the campus printing plant. According to the Publications Board campus censorship rested in the hands of "The Harvest" faculty adviser and staff. However, when the staff chose not to delete the word the administration overruled, closing the door on an attempt to make academic freedom a reality for all students. 97
