ATLANTA (CPS) - The pres-i
idents of five black colleges here
have recently sent a joint letterJ
to President Johnson and law en-
forcement officials appealing forl
protection of college campuses
from invasion by the "American
version of storm troopers.m
The letter was sent in reaction
to the fatal shootings of three
black students at South Carolina
State College in Orangeburg, S.C.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., earl-
ier sent a similar letter to At-+
torney General Ramsey Clark ask-

ing for immediate federal action
on the Orangeburg slayings, which
he called "the largest armed as-
sault undertaken under color of
law in recent Southern history."
At the same time, students in
Atlanta have reacted to the
Orangeburg incident by forming a
Black Student Alliance which
will be composed of students from
all five colleges.
Walter Dancy, a student leader,
said the Alliance was formed be-
cause of the "anger and frustra-
tion of the powerlessness of black
