Response to
Viet Rallies

Hold Services, Rally

Aside from the march on the
jail, student protestors against the
war in Viet Nam sponsored yes-
terday a memorial service to the
dead after the football game, and
a late evening rally.
Rev. Daniel Burke of St. An-.
drew's Episcopal Church, stressed
that the memorial service was
not mourning only the Ameircan
dead, but the "human dead" in
Viet Nam. He read a passage from
the book of Isaiah which ended

pointed out that "we all suffe
when one man dies" because of
man's sacred nature, and that the
war was "ripping communities
apart," not only in Viet Nam but
also in the U.S.
Kerman also spoke of rehabili-
tating the refugees in Viet Nam
and "sharing our abundance and
affluence." He paused after each
of his points to let the crowd si-
lently consider it.

Fraternities and sororities on the University of California's

organizations, it was disclosed recently. Riverside Chancellor Ivan

Judge William Frey said in his decision, "Civil disobedience and
disregard or disrespect for the law are wrong and must not be
condoned." The injunction had been requested by university
officials. An attorney representing the NAACP said that an
immediate appeal of Judge Frey's decision is planned.

University of Coiorado regents voted two weeks ago to refuse
to lift a new-member ban against the campus charter of Sigma
Chi fraternity, which has been in effect since May. The CU
chapter was denied pledging or initiating privileges because the
national fraternity, with which the CU chapter is affiliated,
compels local chapters to discriminate against minorities.

IU' Students

By Sheriff
Group, Changes Route
To Avoid Possibility
Of Additional Violence
Violence failed to flare in Ann
Arbor yesterday as students par-
ticipating in the International
Days of Protest altered some of
their plans for demonstrations in
order to avoid friction.
According to Peter DiLorenzi, a
spokesman for the protestors,
there was fear yesterday there
would be more incidents similar
to Friday's attack on the demon-
strators' float in the Homecoming
The fear of inciting violence
was among the prime factors in
changing the demonstrators' plans
to march on the stadium to hand
out leaflets, DiLorenzi said.
During the International Days
of Protest, DiLorenzi pointed out,
there has been scattered incidents
of violence across the country.
The group planned to march
together to the stadium to dis-
tribute pamphlets for the Ann Ar-
bor Women Strike for Peace and
to arouse the sympathy of the
Homecoming crowd for their cause
and for the students jailed for
Friday's sit-in demonstration,
DiLorenzi said.
They had further planned to
march to Wines Field after the
game to participate in a memor-
ial service for the dead in Viet
Nam, he said. However, the Ath-
letic Department did not grant
permission for the use of the
field, according to DiLorenzi.
In addition, the Ann Arbor po-
lice department said that protec-
tion of the demonstrators was im-
possible, DiLorenzi said. One of
the policemen said that there
would be too many people present
and that violence comparable to
the destruction of the' Viet Nam
Day Committee's float Friday
could easily recur.
The demonstrators were asked
instead to distribute their pam-
phlets in the stadium without the
preceding march. They decided to
disband before going to the sta-
dium and to regroup for their
memorial service on the steps of
Alumni Hall at 4 p.m.
After the memorial service the
demonstrators marched as sched-
uled to the County Jail at 5 p.m.
As bonds had been posted before
noon, the release of the remain-
ing jailed protestors was antici-
pated by the- demonstrators to
concur with their arrival at the
jail, DiLorenzi said.
At the jail, however, Sheriff
Harvey refused to release the jail-
