Although the court of inquiry is generally open to the public. Navy officials said some mat- teis concerning national security will not be made public.

(AP) — Dissident Negro students crippled the Brandeis University communications s y tern Wednesday in a nonviolent bid fcr virtual automony in Negro affairs on campus. University President Morris B. Abram called the seizure of Ford Hall an affront to the university community. The faculty voted condemnation of the action and called on the approximately 70 Negroes to abandon tiujr demonstration. The students answered by barricading doors to the three- si:o"y red brick building. They said they had enough food stockpiled to last three days. Wednesday night Abram entered Ford Hall for about 10 minutes to talk with the students. In a statement following the brief meeting, Abram said he "had no intentions of negotiating the demands under the present circumstances." Negro men blocked entrances to the building which houses the university switchboard, faculty offices and an auditorium. They cuVo barred doors to an adjacent budding containing laboratories and the university computer. Abram said the last thing he wanted to do was to summon police. "The university is a very fragile institution," he said. "It cannot function in an atmosphere of violence." But he conceded that the university "does not have sufficient forte to vacate the building." The Negroes presented a list of 10 "nonnegotiable" demands, including: —Establishment of an African studies department with power to hire and fire and an independent budget. —Establishment of a year rround recruitment of black students by black students and headed by a black director. —Immediate action 'on hiring cf black professors. —Establishment of an Afro- American center to be resigned by black students. Abram contended that the students acted "without prior complaint to the administration." He said that lines of communications within Brandeis have 'always been open and have been blocked only by the force employes by those who have seized the facilities . .. "1 can only express the deepest shock and amazement over this student act." After a 2 1 ,&-hour meeting, the faculty voted 153-18 to "utterly condemn the forcible takeover of the university premises. We believe we cannot confront the problems of the university under threat and coercion. The faculty demands that the stu- 'Vtits involved vacate Ford Hall and enter negotiations of any grievance with the university administration." The dean of faculty, Peter Diamondopoulos, delivered a copy of the resolution to the Negro students and asked them to leave. They refused. The student council met but took no concrete action. There are 110 Negroes among Brandeis' 2,600 students. The private school is located 10 miles west of Boston. Abram, who took over the presidency last September, said iie has overseen the university's efforts to establish 10 Martin Luther King scholarships; a corcentration in Afro-American studies; an intensified recruitment program which has resulted in doubling the black enrollment and a similar recruitment piogram for the employment of blacks.
