Strike claims



(Continued from Page 1)
students just smiled and brushed
by the pickets. There were no re-
ported incidents of strikers forci-
bly preventing students to enter
any building.
Although there were some stu-
dents who entered 8 a.m. classes
to explain the strike issue, t h e
"rapping" in classes did not start
until 9 a.m. and continued from
then throughout the day.
During these "raps," strikers
asked the professor before class
for permission to explain the is-
sues behind the strike. Profes-
sors generally agreed and in many
instances these 5 minute explana-
tions branched out into half hour
and sometimes hour-long discus-
sions of the student power drive.
One exception was Prof. K. L.
Jones of Botany 103 who refused
to allow striker Bernard Elbaum
to speak before the class as the
class, he said, was just about to
During the discussions, the
strikers told students they had
very little power in the University
decision-making process and urg-
ed them to strike to show the ad-
ministration their dissatisfaction
with their impotence in policy-
There were no reported in-
stances however, of students leav-
ing class after the strikers speech.
Following the talk, a profesor of-
ten gave his position and the
class voted, generally, to remain
in class.
An urban studies class in the
Residential College, however, vot-
ed 14-2 not to hold class.
There were also some instances
of professors offering to dismiss
class if the students were willing.
Prof. Conrad Kottak who teach-
es Anthropology 101 told students
that they did not have to attend
class if they did not desire and
added that the material he was
covering would not appear on the

pled, Reaske's had about 90 per
cent of the students there.
Prof. Alfred Meyer's Political
Science 407 class also spent the
hour discussing the decision-mak-
ing issues.
Prof. Dariel Fusfeld spent the
hour explaining to the class why
the bookstore was not economically,
feasible, though he admitted sym-
pathies to the student power
movement. He allowed a student
organizer to speak for the remain-
ing 10 minutes of the hour.
History 561 Prof. Sidney Fine--
who estimated about 150 students
of 180 usually there-explainedr
that he would not support the
strike because he wanted to pre-
serve the separation of politics
and the classroom.
Former Student Government'
Council member Mark Rosenbaum
spoke for about three minutes and
then left.
Although the attendances of
these humanity-oriented classes
was in many cases 20 per cent
down, classes in mathematics and
natural sciences continued nor-
mally and without student-profes-
sor discussions.
a Introductory chemistry students,
faced hourlies yesterday and did
not, consequently, strike, many
students explained. Attendance
figures approached 90 per cent,
in the zoology, geology, astronomy
and physics classes sampled.
Language students in introduc-
tory Spanish and French classes
agreed that the class was near
full attendance.
e yes- The same high attendance figure
is dis- applied to the Law School. Prof.
of the Jerry Israel's Criminal Law class
claimed 80 of the usual 85 students
Pam in attendance.

Faculty backs Fleming




IContinued from Page 1)
In support of the administra-
tion, classics Prof. Howard Cam-
eron said he was surprised at how
"eccommodating" the Regents and
Fleming have been.
"The issue has nothing to do
with the bookstore," Cameron
said. "Every noon I see a rally
with the same people casting about
for an issue and, as a credit to

This includes the use or threat of
force or violence.
Many of the defendants yester-
day told the judges they did not
understand the nature of the
charges against them and insist-
ed that the statute be read.
Many also asked for individual
jury trials.
The request for individual jury
trials was granted for the time
being by Thomassen but was re-
jected by Elden. Those defendants
in Elden's court who requested in-
dividual jury trials did not press
the issue when denied.
But, when Peter Denton, an or-
ganizer of yesterday's class strike,
asked the judge what he could do
to appeal Elden's consolidation of
trials, Elden reportedly told him
to speak with his lawyer.
Thomassen, however, ruled le
would not consider consolidating
his trials until a motion was made
to that effect by either the prose-
cuting attorney or the defense..
City officials and local attor-
neys said yesterday that although
the question of granting an indi-
vidual or consolidated jury trial
is at the discretion of the court,
they believed it is possible to
appeal the decision.
Assistant C o u n t y Prosecutor
Thomas Shea said he does not
know at this time if the prosecu-
tion will ask for consolidated

Campus buses will stop at a new

will replace the present Bishop

their pei severance, they've finally
found one."
The faculty meibers generally
praised Fleming for the handling
of the sit-in. Some o1 those pres-
ent expressed the view that to de-
feat the proposed motion would,
in effect., force his resignation.
Dissenting. philosophy , P r o f.
Frithjof Bergmann offered an
amendment deleting a sentence'
concerning Fleming's handling of
the sit-in crisis. "As a matter of
principle, police should be brought
on campus only as a last resort,"
he said. But the amendment was
defeated, despite some support.
Near the close of the meeting
discussions on faculty participa-
tion in the Oct. 15 strike against
the war in Vietnam were brought
up. A resolution allowing students
and faculty to cancel classes, to
hold teach-ins and other activi-
ties will be voted on at a special
Assembly meeting next Monday
at 2:15 pam.

French students take to the streets to breathe the air
of revolution, and alhost succeed in toppling the
DeGaulle government. As workers call massive strikes
in support of student demands, workers and students
stand united behind the closed doors of the factories,
and fight pitched battles with the police in the
streets of Paris.
