Claims evidence of
criminal violations
President Robben Fleming warned last night the Uni-
versity will prosecute ROTC disrupters uinder statutory law if
it finds that yesterday's demonstrations violated "civil and/or
criminal law."
In a statement issued late last night, Fleming said ev I,-
dence "indicates that there have been violations of Student
Government rules, college disciplinary rules and statutory
law" and added "the matter has now been turned over to the

a tion.
"Because of thle involv'ement of
ion-students" in the demnstra-
tion, the president added "it may
be necessary to act against stu-
dents and noil-students alike un-
der statutory lacy"' in oirder to
tieat all demonstrators equally.
Meanwhile, ov'er 200 per'sons
voted by a large majority last
inight' to continue disrupting ROTC
classes until next Monday.
Fleming will take tile fin~al de-
cisionl if criminal action was in-
volv'ed, Vice President for' Acade-
milc Affairs Allan Smith said ear-
ly this morning.
Demonstrators could possibly be
prosecuted undeir a statute which
provides that "any person who
shlall excite any disobedience oir
contention in ally. . . public
building" shall be guilty of a mtis-
denmeanor' punishable by up to 90
days in jail and or $100 fine.
The disrupters hlave agreed to
leave the building if' police ar'e
called ill.
Bar'iy Bluestone, a member of
tile ad hoc comm~iittee against
ROTC, said early tis morning
that the disrupter's would decide
today if arr'ests ar'e imnminent and
act accoirdingly.
Police Chief Walter Krasny said
last night he was "waiting word
firoim the Piresident" on possible
police actions, and added the

Over 200 students last night
voted by a substantial major-
ity to continue disruption of
ROTC classes through M o n-
day of next week.
Definite planis we're formulated
to disirupt all ten ROTC classe-
!at North Hall today, while organ-
izationl of Monlda ys disruptions
was delegated to a inewly formed
steerinig comnmittee conmposed of

cus, Students for' a Democratic
Society, Resistance, and othe'r
"interested people."
People' at tile nieecting also ap-
proved tihe scheduling of- a Diag

meet ing fom' Monday night and
voted to issue an "immediatc

Other students questioned the
