Seek action in LSA,
civil court and CSJ
By ROB BIER
Three separate actions are being taken by the University
against persons involved in the recent harassment of military
and corporation recruiters and the property d a m a g e at
North Hall early Sunday morhing.
President Robben Fleming announced yesterday the Uni-
versity is seeking prosecution of at least 16 individuals in
the civil courts and prosecution of the local chapter of Stu-
dents for a Democratic S o c i e t y before Central Student
In addition, Fleming said he was turning the names of
the 13 students identified thus far over to literary college
Dean William Hays. "It appears that all of the students in-
volved are from LSA," Fleming said.
Two possible courses of action open to the college are
referral of the case to either CSJ or the Administrative Board
of the college. The board
normally hears strictly aca-
demic cases, such as cheating
or paaris ndiviuswer
No specific idividuals were
named, however. Fleming said last ','.
night that it was still' unclear : '
whether the 16 would be charged
in the recruiter incidents, North
Hall incident or both. Charges, he . " \
said, will be announced in the
Snext few days, including the
j names of the individuals.
Fleming said that a local attor-...
ney, Richard Ryan, had been in-
vestigating the incidents "and now
believes that there is a firm case
against at least 16 individuals ;
Thirteen of them seem"to be stu
dents, he said.
Meanwhile yesterday, Ann Ar-
bor Police Chief Walter Krasny
said that 40 people had been
identified as being at North Hall
during Sunday's incident. : " a'
"However, we still have a br-
den of proof to establish, whether
tese people were actually in Presidnt Flemng
valved,," Krasny said.
Krasny said the identifications were made with the help of people
in the crowd outside North Hall during the breakin. No warrants
are being sought at this time, he said.
Hays declined last night to speculate on what action the literary
college might take with the students whose names he will receive.
* "The action is a decision for the executive committee of the col-
lege," Hays said. "They'll take it up as soon as they can, but I don't
know when a decision will be reached."
The action through CSJ, Fleming said, would be taken because
SDS "has been promoting and encouraging these interruptions, which
are in clear violation of Student Government Council rules."
In his statement, Fleming also said that SGC would be asked to
remove its recognition of SDS as a student organization. The action,
if taken would deny SDS the use of University facilities and other
. privileges given student organizations.
However, last week SGC flatly rejected a similar request from
Placement Services Director Evart Ardis. SOC President Marty
McLaughlin, in a letter to Ardis, pointed to CSJ as the appropriate
body for action against any student group.
The actions announced yesterday resulted from three incidents
of "trashing" within the past two weeks. On Jan. 21, SDS staged
a sit-in while military recruiters were interviewing students. A can
of black paint was poured over one of the recruiters.
Last Friday, demonstrators partially blocked the office used by
a DuPont Company recruiter, threw a dead fish on his desk and
sprayed the room with insecticide.
The third incident was Sunday's break-in at North Hall, where
the ROTC program is housed. Approximately 30 demonstrators there
caused an estimated $1,200 worth of damage to windows, doors and
Fleming said that some of the Regents had called him on the
matter, and that he had discussed it with them. However, a high
University source said all eight Regents had been contacted by Fleming
and that all had approved of his action.
