Counter-Orientation Attempts Rebuttal Of University's Traditional Welcome

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two campus activist groups today will kick off a week of counter-orientation activities designed to rebut what they consider a one-sided picture of the University presented to freshmen by the Harvard Establishment.

The New American Movement (NAM) and the Cambridge Movement (CM) plan to send 15-20 of their members canvassing freshmen door-to-door during the next five days.

The activists plan to informally discuss political issues and personal feelings with the freshmen. They will also solicit signatures in support of the United Farmworkers' lettuce boycott. They anticipate reaching all freshmen in the course of the week.

The radicals will circulate an 50-page pamphlet entitled Introducing Harvard to explain their viewpoint. The pamphlet explores Harvard's alleged rule has In-dochina War research and development, links between the University and large corporations, and charges Harvard win a selfish, expansionist attitude toward the Cambridge and Roxbury committees.

The pamphlet is the product of a summer of research and writing by about ten of the activists.

One of the authors explained that the pamphlet was produced by gathering and analyzing existing information. "The stuff was all there-we just had to find is and organize it," he said.

The activists also plan to leaflet outside Sanders theatre when Daniel P. Moynithan's, professor of Education and Urban Politics speaks there at 8 p.m. tomorrow. They will question Moynithan's position on welfare and his links with the Nixon Administration.

To cap the week's activities, the radicals will show two antiwar slide shows two antiwar slide shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday in Emerson 105. The shows deal with the war industry in New England and the connections between large corporations and the war.
