(Courier News Photo) To Keep By KEN HARTNETT Associated Press Writer MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) Marquette. University movec Friday night toward the hiring of a Negro administrator, a step aimed at ending a campus protest that threatened the university with the loss of faculty members and basketball stars. Negro student leaders who demanded the action were not immediately available for comment. The decision to end the demonstrations that have occupied the Roman Catholic institution for two weeks was in, their hands. Also unavailable for comment was the Rev. Bernard J. Cooke. The theologian and two other priests .offered to resign-from the faculty if the. administration failed to take positive action in the controversy by tonight. The "Rev. John P. Raynor, jresident, appointed a nine- member committee Friday night to work toward Negro scholarships and courses in Negro and other minority cultures. : '0n the basis of the best advice I have been able to gather, he committee should seek out a qualified black administrator" to coordinate the- .scholarship program, Father Raynor said in a statement.. The university would maintain veto power over any committee action, the statement indicated. The protestors, white and Negro, insisted on a commitment to hire a Negro administrator at Marquette, the largest Roman Catholic coeducational school in the nation. •-.••,. They ha'd given the university until Thursday afternoon to meet the demand but said the administration could wait until August 1969 to fill the position. Father Raynor, saying , that Marquette.would not be coerced by student' pressure,' rejected the ultimatum but named a committee to study and implement scholarship programs and courses in minority cultures. The protestors reacted by announcing the' intended withdrawal of six basketball players and 14 other Negro students including George '.Thompson, a junior from New. York "City who won honorable mention- on .'last season's All-America team. etes Less than one per cent d Marquette's 6,200 und'ergfadu- ates are Negroes. . . Early Friday,. the .basketball players released a statement saying they 'had agreed to remain in the university after all. The change of mind came after they met with Coach McGuire. But a few hours later, their status again became uncertain.
