Lawrence Journal World (Newspaper) - March 08, 1980, Lawrence, KansasSaturday column Ftp National and International r by Dolph Simons Lawrence journal world March 1980 Page 2 last week a group of Kan Sas University staff members suggested there is an Effort by the schools administration to put a Clamp on Freedom of expression at the and that such a policy has a chilling effect on the those raising the charges claimed the administration is too concerned about a Good image for the school in the eyes of the parents and state this new charges have been directed toward the administration Chancellor Archie Dykes in this time the charge is the administration did not Deal fairly and properly with the two faculty members who suddenly decided to leave Kun and to become negotiators in the Iran hostage the two who reportedly left their classes without notifying students or the proper academic were placed on and some at Kun claim the faculty members in question were not Given an Opportunity to pre sent their Side of the the average citizen pro Bably thinks teachers Are be ing paid to or carry out other specific but apparently some at Kun think faculty members should be Able to do whatever they say whatever they wish and conduct themselves in whatever manner they May choose without the administration having any right to exercise leadership or disciplinary this reporter last week noted in this column that Many faculty members get by with far More questionable practices than they would be allowed in private and if conditions Are so bad and intolerable on mount those sufficiently motivated certainly have the right to look elsewhere for the same situation exists relative to the faculty members who decided to become negotiators in the Iran it seems they May have gotten off lightly com pared to what might have happened in private most employers would have terminated workers who left their without telling pro per superiors or receiving permission to rather than merely placing them on there is Little question that a Large majority of Kan Sas citizens and those who Are asked to pay the Bills at Kun and the other state will Back the administration in its action relative to the Kun in most probably think the schools policy is too it seems there May be an Effort on the part of a Small minority of Kun teachers to try to capture the spotlight or become the Center of Atten Tion by bringing charges against the schools and these faculty members do not like the apparent direction of the school at this time As they prefer the actions and freedoms of the late 1960s and Early they were in their heydays in those and with the current emphasis on dedicated a student body interested in going to class and learning and an administration intent on building the school into an even finer academic institution and giving state taxpayers the maximum return on their they May see their their image among some of their colleagues and their uniqueness or rebel image Slipp they dont like it and they Are going to try to harass and cause they would like to be treated As there have been times when Dykes has not received the proper support from some of his they knew what was right and what actions should be but rather than step Forward and say yes or no or make a firm decision on some they sidestepped the Issue and placed the responsibility for policies and decisions on Dykes this is Why any Chancellor or College president needs to have fair and Strong men and women associated with him in the administration of a it int a place for softies or those who
