Transcript Issues meeting, Grand Jury probe, Rudd rally awaken student concern At an all-university meeting, students, faculty and administrators discuss the Grand Jury investigations, above. Right, Dr. Bancroft Henderson. Far right, above, Mark Rudd with SDS traveler Margie Haille, prepares to speak at rally, below, Vice-President William A. Yardley talks to students poolside at Issues Conference. Directly after the outbreak of violence on March 17 at UH Mark Rudd was invited by SDS to speak to students. Despite a ruling by the administration that he could not speak due to the campus atmosphere, the former SDS member addressed a throng of over 1000 students who appeared relatively unimpressed with the notorious trouble-maker. For acting against the administration's ruling the SDS organization was denied its official campus recognition and Rudd was denied permission to return to the campus at threat of legal action. Dialogue continues Students, faculty and administrators met in the middle of spring to continue the dialogue begun in the fall with a second University Issues Conference held in Galveston. Interspersed between dips in the gulf and the hotel pool, discussions focused on topics of relevance to the university community. Grand Jury investigates Towards the end of April, a Harris County Grand Jury announced that they were investigating alleged "immoral and illegal" activities on the UH campus. The student body, faculty and administration expressed their outrage over the motives and methods of the Grand Jury by holding two discerning meetings. Disclaimed by students as a "witch-hunt" the UH faculty senate voted to censure the Grand Jury. Damaging publicity created by the indiscretions of the Grand Jury and the Houston Tribune caused Dr. Ban Henderson, associate professor of political science, to resign, and Rev. Edwin deF. Bennett, coordinator of religious and leadership activities, to be temporarily relieved of his duties. During the summer, the Board of Regents relieved Bennett permanently. The Grand Jury, which obtained much of its information from a private investigator, finally ended its session in late May without any indictments. 81
