Indiana Lawmaker Seeks Purdue Trustees' Resignations

  INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ A Democratic state lawmaker wants Purdue University's trustees to resign after they approved a bonus for President Mitch Daniels amid questions about his commitment to academic freedom.
 
  Rep. Charlie Brown of Gary questioned the ``collective sanity'' of the board Tuesday after it voted Friday to award Daniels more than $58,000 for his first six months on the job.
 
  The vote followed revelations that Daniels tried to keep liberal historian Howard Zinn's work out of Indiana K-12 classrooms while governor and wanted to ensure it didn't count toward teacher training credit.
 
  Daniels ordered staff to ``disqualify the propaganda'' used in teacher preparation courses in emails obtained by The Associated Press. He says he wanted to keep Zinn out of K-12 and fully supports academic freedom.
 
  Daniels appointed most of Purdue's trustees.
