of the ruling, the case of Chuck

When asked about the fact the
ten-year-old Mike Okun was in
the play and is not a student, Ay

the basis of Moore's being an "ex

present time he felt the University
would not feel free to have a Ne
gro who was not a student parti
cipate in student activities. He
further said that within the
framework of University rules
Negro students are given equal
frights and privileges.
Commenting on the administra
