Ann Arbor, Michigan-Tuesday, October 1, 1968
By JIM HECK
Ann Arbor Police Chief Walter
Krasny said last night there is. an
"increasing possibility" that the
bombing of the Ann Arbor Central
Intelligence Agency office late-
Sunday night is connectd with six
similar incidents which have oc-
curred in Detroit since Aug. 30.
After conferring with men from
the special investigation squad of.
the Detroit Police Department,
Krasny said that all seven inci-
dents "appear to have the same
type of operations."
The explosion of the four to six
sticks of dynamite placed in front
of the CIA office at 450 S. Main'
St. occurred at about 11:30 p.m.;
The blast shattered all of the
building's front windows, over-
turned furniture inside the build-
ing, dug a three-inch hole in the
cement outside the CIA office, and
shattered windows in neighboring
The blast was reported to be
heard as far as two miles away.
Krasny said the bombing "look-
ed very professional," explainingt
that there were no traces of the
bomber Sunday night. "He was
apparently long-gone after "the
blast," Krasny said.
Rough estimates available last
night placed external damage be-
tween $3,000 and $5,000 and in-
ternal damage between $1,000 and

University President Robben W. Fleming last night called
for greater student participation and condemned student
"violence, coercion, and threats," while over 100 protesters
demonstrated against his State of the University Address.
Fleming spoke at the annual Faculty-Staff Convocation
in Rackham Lecture Hall before a crowd of 800 faculty
members and their wives, and
The demonstrators, some of
whom were members and support-
ers of "The Jesse James Gang," a
faction of Students for a Demo-
cratic Society, wandered in and
out of the auditorium while Flem-
ing's speech was going on. They
did not enter as a group until five
minutes before the conclusion of
the program, when they began to
punctuate the president's remarks
with applause and calls of "More
research," and "What about Thai-
