Students who disrupt ROTC
classes will be both prosecuted
in circuit court and disciplin-
ed under University regula-
tion if evidence justifies it,
President Robben Fleming an-
nounced yesterday.
Fleming added that he has ask-
ed University attorneys "to explore
the possibilities of civil damage
suits against non-students for in-
tentional invasion of the privacy
of the classrooms."
Organizers of the anti-ROTC
movement planned meanwhile to
go ahead with the scheduled dis-
ruption of more ROTC classes to-
morrow at 1 p.m.
Fleming's statement, which re-
peated two previous warnings that
disrupters would be prosecuted
under criminal statutory laws, was
the first official admission that
the University will also try to dis-
cipline students before University
boards, and sue non-students un-
der civil laws.
Fleming added that 15 of about
60 persons who entered ROTC
classes Thursday have already
been identified. He did not dis-
close any names.

A graduate student, John Wil-
helm, went to the General Library
recently to obtain the only volume
there of a journal he needed for
his dissertation work. However,
Wilhelm was unsuccessful because
the journal was being held, al-
though it was far beyound the
proper time limit, by a University
Wilhelm was not. the first per-
son to ask for the journal--library

before but the riofessor informed

R. Anne Okey checked her files
and discovered that the professor

had at least 34 overdue books in
his possession.
The library staff insists that on-
ly a small minority of the faculty
is irresponsible and "totally con-
temptuous" of other users of the
library. But, this small minority is
responsible for over 3,500 books
that have been overdue for at least
two months. This accounts for
from one sixth to one tenth of the
General Library circulation .

Many swear at Miss Okey and

to allow others the use of the

receive a worse response, Wilhelm
"Most students now believe it's

Chemistry Prof. Peter Smith, a
member of the Student Relations
Committee which heard the com-
plaint from the library staff, says
he was personally affected only
once but his wife, a research as-
sistant, and several of his students
have had considerable trouble ob-
taining overdue books.
"It is not often that you have
any trouble getting a book, but you
remember the few belligerent re-
sponses." says Smith. "You can
always forgive someone who is
just forgetful and is willing to

Smith believes "the extreme, ar'-
rogant cavaliering of books should
be taken into account" when a
faculty member is being consid-
ered for tenure or promotion.
But, as the situation stands now,
there are no sanctions against fac-
ulty members who have overdue
books. And library director Fed-
erick Wagman and Miss Okey be-
lieve, the situation is critical.
Wagman went before SRC to
request the committee to recom-

mittee on University Affairs that
