Mr. Dunlap '~elieved': Students Prote~t On Monday. April 17. at about 11:45a.m. , one ofthe most dramatic incidents in MPA history occurred. Approximately onc third oCthe Upper School student population walked off campus in protest over an administration decision relieving Mr. Niel Dunlap, a music and history teacher of cleven yea r s standing at MPA, of his teaching duties.


The protest began after lunch with a rally on the steps of the Art Center in Jones Bowl, with approximatel y 140- students in attendance. The Dunlap issue was associated with other current issues. such as communication with administrators. dress code, and the dismissal of Mike Sims. Soon thereafter. a parade of

90 to 9 5 students was l ed off camp~s' to Bohn Park on liith and Longwood. Some Ci(te~n students returned to school shortly . After some speech making and a few feeble attempts at folk singing , a squad car and two policemen arrived . The officers had evi dently been summoned by l oca l residents. The g r 0 u p li s t ened quietly as the group l eaders ex-

MPA 4 - Red Tape 1 MPA pf\rticipants in the YMCA sponsored Youth and Government program spent April 2 1-23 in Spr ingCie l d attending mock le gis 1ative sess ion s. This trip culminated several months of preparatbn by those stuoonts in terms of redaying bills and becoming fam il iar with le gis lativ e procedures. Five ofthe bills, amo n g those in Springfiel d, had MPA students as sponsors . The quality and rel evancy dthese b ill s n canparison to the other bills might be shown in the fact that two of these bills received a number one priority in committee, two bills received a number two priority , and onl; received a number three priorlty . Bill priorities extablish the importance of a bill, as this dec16ion determine .. the order in which a bill will be considered by its re spective House-a bill of a number one priority is considered first, that of ten is considered last. Four of the MPA bills actually came up f or con sideration dur1ng the two days of legislative aesaiona . Two bills. one regarding the es tabli s hm ent of a CO .. 1 mission to channel funds for increased railroad se rvice, and the o ther advocating the binding


of del egates to the Democratic and Republican nominating conventions to the i r candidates fo r the fir s t few vot es. passed both House s and was signed by the Ywth Governor . Two other bills. one changing s tatue s regarding p r esent policy in granting servicemen special driving privileges , and one advocating op en pre s idential primaries, passes both Houses but word is still a-

waited as to whether or not they were signed by the Youth Gove r n or . The fifth bill , which asked for the conve rsion o f the Illinois and Mich igan Canal Zone to a s t ste park was not consi dered by either House due to l ack of Ume . MPA advisors received seve ral canplime nt s as to the superior preparation and conduct demons trated by the MPA parti cipants.

plained their cause. The policemen seemed sYTnpathetic, and suggested the gro up move to a p.rivate residence , as assem bling in a public park was illegal. The group consented, and moved to the Spurgin residence, 11323 S . Lothair. Mr. Jones was contacted , and he was agreeable to meetlng wlth J po k e s men from the protest group . So, Brent Grossmann, George Ivancevich, and Mark Schneider left the rapidly dimin ishing group (numerous students were on their way home ) to talk with Mr. Jones and Mr. Lints . For nearly two hours, the five discussed the Mr. Dunlap issue. Atthe end of the discussion , a ll that ahd been res.olved wa's as follows: students would come to classes as normal on Tuesday, talks would continue , and pun ish men t (0 r a ll students who wa 1 ked out would be uniform , regardless of previous records . Mr. Jones refused to consider allowing M~. Dunlap .t o r etlKrn . Mr . Dunlap was contacted , and h ewaswilling to drop the issue . Mr. Jones soon sent a s t a t ement to the Student Counc il President to the effect that any student with a specific grievance may go with the Council President down to Mr. Jones w ithout appointment to review the p r obl em . Punishment for the protestors cunsisted of a l e tter sent home to parents, and the l etter being included in the student's file. The letter will bt; removed at the end of the year if the student causes no further such disruption. Mr. Dunlap, although relieved from his teaching duties, will remain on the Academy payroll for the remainder of the school year , and his children will be allowed to finish out the year. Hi s Music I and II cla sses are now being taught by Mrs. Gus t afson . Mr. Dunlap 1 s relieffrom duty was brought about by many reasons: his r eluctance to in clude certain aspects of music in his program, many differences of opinion between Mr. Dunl ap and the administration, the pro pagation of many rumors from many sou r ces with varying de gress oft ruth in them, and finally a d is 0 bed i e n c e of one of Mr. Jones 1 0rders.

Convocation Ahout the West Side A convocatio n wa s given by the H istory Department on Tuesday , April 25, during s econd and third perio ds. The subject was the interpretation of life on the Wes t Sid e of Chicago by Mr. Stelton's soc io logy-p sycoology cIa s se s . They had taken a field tri p t o the North Star Mis s ion , and made a f11m s trip of the ir expe riences, which was s hown at the conv o cation. Thu s , the impre s sion s a r e tho se of MPA s tudent s . and not tho se of a comme r cial fUm maker . The purpose o[ the convocation, as exFlained by Mr . St eIton, was to pr 0 v id e an imper s onal le arning experience [or both s tudents and th e re s ident s of the Wes t Side. Both pa rtie s found that they were af r aid to be i n each o therl s neighb or hoods , and th e y attribute d this fear to ignorance and exagge r ate d danger s . Reverend Henry Mitchell then gave his view s of the No rth Star Mi s s ion, which he h eads . He s t ated that the mi s s i o n' s goal was to help the r e s idents of the area to rebuild it from within. The persormel of the mi s sion try to wo r k with the r es l~enta t o s av~ .ol de r buildings . w hich would be torn down oth erwi se , and make them u sabl e again . The mis s ion in this wa y rejects the idea of a mi s sion as Ju at a " s oup kitchen. " A question and answer period wa s provided af t e r Rev. MIt c h e llI s comment s , which helped to pre sent a fuller pic tur e of th e mission for the s tudents. He al s o said that ' donations of c l o thing we r e we l come 1£ any s tudent s wished to donat e.

BAC SCHEDULING The pos s ible increase of the Academy s tudent ' s use of .the Be verly Art Center was tbe s ubJec t of a recent interview with Mr . Jones, who i s now director of the Center. It seems apparent tha t many studen t s are unaware of the cultural and educational activities off ere d there, b oth du ring the week and on weekend s . A cal endar o~ BAC events is currently po sted on the first floor and will possibly be posted on the Student bulleUn"board in the fu ture. The possibility of scheduling events whic h would be primaril y ofinterest to the s tudents was also di s cussed. There is virtually no time when more events could be scheduled for the Art Center until thi s 'fall. The calendar for the end of 1972 and the beginning of 1973 i s now being made up by the program committee. The even t s which a re held there are spo n so red by either the Academy , the Art Center itself, Or l:qy side g roup s who rent the BAC . The Ac ademy s pon so red event s take 1 recede nce during s chool hours. The use of the Center at othe r time s Is deter-

mIned on a !i r s t come , fir s t s erved basi s . If there a re two g roup s whowantto u s e It for the same tim e , th 0 u g h the event which woul d inte r est the greate s t nu m b e r of pe ople a nd has the greatest cultural or educational va 1 u e will, be g iv ~ n use of the ~ r . Basedonthis . Mr. J one s said that activitie s for s tudent s which would b e b asic ally enter tainment for a limited audience (such as a movie night or a rock band) could be s t be arranged on two or three week s notice . The Admini s tration would try to respond as much as possible t o stude nt int ere s t by s po n so rIng convocation s Or lectur es , s tated Mr . Jone s . Student s who would like a s pecIfic activity s hould speak t o Mr. Jones directly, o r throu gh their 5 t u den t Coun cil repre s entative s . Al s o , any s tud e nts who w o uld like to present a lecture Or pr a g r am during sc h ool hour s would b e aided by the Admini s trati on, upon approval of th e program. Mr. J Qnes .s aid that he or any faculty mem _ adult r e pre s entati o n if a group of s tudent s would like to use the Art Cente r for thi s purpose.
