Approximately 5,000 University

a mass rally last night to hold a

At least 65 students were in-
jured in the melee in which po-

In other action, at an ad hoc
meeting last night faculty mem-

on a sympathy strike today.
The faculty interrupted their
meeting to join the student rally.

They surrounded the rallying stu-
dents to protect them from pos-
sible police attacks.
The students were sitting-in to
demand that the university bar

Sewell called for the meeting
yesterday before the faculty voted
to join the students.

Sewell also suspended several,
leaders of the sit-in. The demon-
stration was organized by a joint
effort of campus organizations.
The president of the Student
Senate, Michael Fullwood, issued
a statement laying the blame for
the police action -on the demon-
strators. A student senator re-
signed in protest of the statement.
In a statement, Sewell said, 'I

Freshman women in Stockwell'
Hall abolished their hours restric-
tions last night, when 150 of the
200 freshmen living in the hall
signed a petition to that effect.
Total elimination of hours for
any individual freshman is con-
ringent on parental permission.
Stockwell is the fifth women's
house to abolish curfew sincej
Student Government Council rec-
ognized their right to do so last1
At the same time, Lloyd House,
in West Quad, eliminated all re-
strictions on visitation by inem-
bers of the opposite sex. The ac-
ticn, in direct contradiction to'
University regulations, is in line
k ith a recent Inter-House Assem-
bly move to allow the individual
houses to set up their own per-
s'nal conduct codes.
Later yesterday evening, Frost
House. in Markley Hall, voted tol
have continual open-opens from
mecn to midnight Sunday through
Thursday, and from noon to 1
a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Under existing University regula-
tiens, visitation hours for mem-
bers of the opposite sex are per-
knitted on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday only.
The new visiting hours mut-
still be approved .by the Frost
stiff, and then by Bruce Storey,
director of Markley Hall.
Meanwhile, in Hunt House,
whose 31 freshmen had already
unanimously petitioned to abolish
their hours, Hunt Council adopt-
ed two resolutions, one abolish-
ing late minute penalties for girls
violating the University-establish-
ed curfew, the other establishingK
these curfews as house rules.
