Dean Reveals Students Challenge Williams
$250 Tuition
Rise For '74-'75 0n Public Sector Placement

By Ricardo Hinojosa
Discussing a subject which he
says will not lead to popularity
Dean Albert M. Sacks presented
his view that a tuition increase ofat
least $250 is needed for 1974-75.
The tentative proposal was pre-
sented at the faculty meeting held
January 25.
Sacks stated he was not asking
for a faculty vote on the tuition in-
crease, since the Harvard Corpora-
tion through his recommendation
will act but in accordance with our
practise I would like the matter
'discussed. The issue had been
raised with the faculty a day earlier
in a memo from the Dean, In the
memo Sacks stated the law school
had been fortunate to have had a
$125,000 surplus in 1971-72 and an

Representatives of a loose coali-
tion of Harvard Law School organi-
zations met with Assistant Dean'
Robert A. Williams Monday to dis-
cuss charges that the Law School
has reneged on its commitment to
provide placement service in the
area of public sector law, and that
efforts by Williams' office to correct
the deficiency have been inade-
quate. The principal result of the
meeting was a promise by Williams
to respond by today to a letter sent
to him earlierby the organizations.
The charges against Harvard's
attempts to place students in public
interest work were initially made
in the letter written to Williams on
December 17. Monday's discussion
resulted from Williams' failure to
respond to the letterby January 22,
as the signatories had requested.

Professor Archibald Cox, '37, who has often, as here, been the center of
attention through his role as University trouble-shooter, returned to the Law
School this week after a five month terni as Special Prosecutor to teach a
spring section of Administrative Law.

The decision to confront Wil-
liams was taken Thursday,
January 24, at an afternoon
meeting of members of eight of
the organizations that had sup.
ported the original letter. After
some discussion, the group de-
cided against bringing the mat-
ter immediately to the attention
of Sacks and the Law School
faculty, as the letter had sug-
gested they would do, and in.
stead to send three persons to
speak with Williams first. Ac-
cordingly, Elizabeth K. Lewicki
IL, Thomas E. Johnson 2L, and
Richard P. Weishaupt 3L ar-
ranged the Monday meeting
with Williams.

Letter to Bok
Opposes JFK
Library Plans
Construction of the proposed
John F. Kennedy library and
museum on the present site was
opposed in a letter to President
Derek C. Bok by Professors Henry
J. Steiner, James Vorenberg, and
more than 20 other members of the
Law School faculty.
While refusing to comment on
the letter, which he characterized
as personal, directly, Vorenberg
did describe his views on the
The museum as now placed,
as compared to the library,
which would be a scholarly
place, looks to me like a disaster
