Resolution 73-26 of the SUNY Board of Trustees: Chavez's appearance is part of a nation-wide boycott aim - ed at forcing growers of California table grapes to discon- tinue the \reckless\ use of \dangerous\ pesticides. He is being sponsored by the Latin Student Union Campus Lecture Committee in cooperation with the College's United University Professions, Cortland College Student Association and the Center for Minority and Women's Studies. Tickets are $1 for SUCC students and $2 for others and may be purchased at the Corey Uni()n Box Office, Love of Pete and Smedley's Bookshop in Ithaca. Chavez, who gained national notoriety championing the rights of migrant workers during the stormy lettuce boycott of the 1960's, is scheduled to make several appearances on campus prior to his evening lecture. A press conference with the former migrant worker will be at 10 a.m. Thursd;1y in the Corey Union Exhibition Lounge, .followed by a Sandwich Seminar at the Doorknoo in Old Main. '\The Wrath. of_ Grap_e~\ ·.Chavez said. \symbolizes the threat p\OStu:f-t>o farn1'Workers·,. tOwns--people and consumers by the reckless use of deadly pohom in agriculture.\ He said that 300,000 U.S. farm workers are poisoned by pesticides applied to crops each year in addition to increased incidents of cancer diagnosed among residents of towns that neighbor the fields. Chavez said, ''the pesticides peril reachee:t to consumers through poisonous residues left on f. ruits. a. d vegetables pur- chased at the market.\ The written permission re- quirement represents prior restraint and harassment techniques against A.F.S., said Reath. Plaintiffs' Arguments _Cullen, one of the. student plaintiffs, said students ''should have the right to in- vite whoever they want into their rooms. The state college policy is very parental,'' said Cullen. Another SUCC student plaintiff, Edward Detweiler said students just want to have their rights on campus, freedom of speech and assemql~~ lie said. The state tried to prove that permitting commerci'al venders in the dorms would be disruptive, said Detweiler. The resident assistants are allowed to hold events, like' \murder games,\ which are more disruptive than a com- mercial presentation, he said. These presentations could be The latest grape boycott was initiated by e United Farm Workers in July, 1984, Chavez said. \f~ft.er.Jt. became. clear that California Governor George Deufcmejian.... would no longer enforce the Agricultural Labor ~elations Act passed in 1975 after the last U .F. W. grape boycott.\ '- · · - another form of release for students, he added. 'No authorization will be gi~en to private com- mercial enterprises to operate on State University campuses or in facilities furnished by the Univer- sit' other than to _provide for food, campus bookstore, laundry, dry cleaning, barber, and beauty services and cultural events.' Defendants' Arguments Franco said he agrees that students should be allowed the right of free speech, but commercial activity should · be limited. \Social events are part of going to college [and are] healthy if done in moderation,\ Franco said. It is important to recognize, Franco said, that if students want commercial people on campus they just have to register with Residence Life and receive approval. Commercial presentations may be held in buildings other than dorms, like Corey Union, he said. If commercial people were allowed in the dorms it will leave· undergraduates vulnerable, especially the in- experienced freshmen, said Franco. Cullen said students won't learn anything if they are hidden from what really hap- pens in life. Concluding Arguments Detweiler said he is op- timistic about winning the case. Franco said students would be affected more negatively than positively if A.F.S. and the students are victorious over the state. If· the case is decided in favor of the plaintiffs, the current SUNY policy would become invalidated and the SUNY Board of Trustees would have to come up with another one, said Reath. . . _ ~IIIUIIIIIIIUllllllltlllllll)llllllllllllllllllllllllltllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllliJ!''· = '= ~- . ~ I ~ t\.a fttrace ~ - - - - iii An lt,,\,.m Slc•dk & ~~afuocl Homt> S - - - - ~ .Pn~;tof Cortla~d's Oldest & Finest §.. 5 . . ______ !omily Restaurants ___ = -· . - E! liatlt,\fl<'Ct<l!s_- 1\k.'.d~!.at~. ~\'~~- _ _ __ ~ = .'r · \rr., ••. •··I - _, - =., • '1 f~rt. / i,'v -'\'1 ( -r'•o~•.,t -llii~ e~ ~~~. i ni-............ ... .
