Student, Faculty Strikes
Protest Police Violence

Approximately 5,000 University,
of Wisconsin students voted at
a mass rally last night to hold a
strike in protest of an attack by
city police on student demonstra-
At least 65 students were in-
jured in the melee in which po-
lice used tear gas and riot-sticks.
In other action, at an -ad hoc
meeting last night faculty mem-
bers voted overwhelmingly to go
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

yesterday before the faculty voted

Draft Demonstration
Continues at Oakland

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
deeply regret that it was necessary
to bring police to the campus.
This was done only after our

Lloyd, Frost Houses
Alter Visiting Hours
In Opposition to 'U'
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-
tingent on parental permission.
Stockwell is the fifth women's
house to abolish curfew since
Student Government Council rec-
ognized their right to do so last
At the same time, Lloyd House,
in West Quad, eliminated all re-
strictions on visitation by mem-
bers of the opposite sex. The ac-
tion, in direct contradiction to
University regulations, is in line
with a recent Inter-House Assem-
bly move to allow the individual
houses to set up their own per-
sonal conduct codes.
Later yesterday evening, Frost
House, in Markley Hall, voted to
have continual open-opens from
noon to midnight Sunday through
Thursday, and from noon to 1
a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Under existing University regula-
tions, visitation hours for mem-
bers of the opposite sex are per-
mitted on Friday, Saturday, and
Sunday only._
The new visiting hours must
still be approved by the Frost
staff, 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 establishinga
these curfews as house rules. f

Demonstrations at the Oakland
Army Induction Center entered
their third day yesterday as 3,000
California students peacefully pic-
keted the Center.
The protesters jammed sidewalks
and chanted as a few dozen staged
a sit-in at the entrances of the
Army Induction Center in Oakland
until police dragged them away.
The mood of the demonstration
was distinctly different from Tues-
day's violent confrontation be-
tween protesters and police. Ex-
cept for the few students who de-
aided to commit civil disobed-
lence by blocking the doorways,
the majority of the demonstrators
merely picketed and chanted anti-
war slogans. The mood of the
rally was far more peaceful, un-
like the tense feeling which sur-
rounded Tuesday's activities.
Present plans include a "day of
rest," scheduled for todiay, for
the protesters, according to the
Daily Californian, the Berkeley
student newspaper. A noon rally
on the steps of Sproul Hall, the
Berkeley administration building,
is also scheduled to take place
today. ,There are no immediate
plans to continue demonstrating
at the Oakland induction center.
The students voted at a rally
yesterday to abandon peaceful
picketing, however, and will again
attempt to halt the transport of
inductees into the center. Stu-
dents will rally at 5:00 a.m. at
Lafayette Park in Oakland on
Friday morning and then proceed
to the center where they will at-
tempt to block buses from enter-

the administration is trying to
meet the injunction to avoid con-

currently asking that all student
organizations sign an affidavit
agreeing to the stipulations of
the injunction. Only one group,
Volition, has signed so far. Colvig
labeled the group "Goldwater con-

student organizations on campus.
Student and faculty groups have
joined in a legal attempt to have
