EDITOR'S NOTE: Daily reporter
Thomas R. Copt attended last week-
end's march on Washington to pro-
test the war in Viet Nam. This is
his story of details and Incidents
about the march.
Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON - Shortly after
the Protest March on Washington
to End the War in Viet Nam be-
gan, Douglas Niles, one of the
storm troopers of George Lin-
coln Rockwell's American Nazi
Party, joined the counter-picket
line which had formed across the
street from the White House.
Greeted with scattered ap-
plause, Niles was carrying a bright

"Free gas and matches for peace
creeps" on one side and "more po-
lice brutality". on the other. But
before he had marched the length
of the counter-picket line, Mark

Garfinkel, an ex-Marine pre-law
student at Temple University in
Philadelphia, lept at him, tearing
off his swastika armband and
damaging his picket sign.
The two squared off and faced
each other for a brief moment
before news photographers and
police separated them. Garfinkel
was taken into custody for "dis-
orderly conduct" and Niles was
surrounded by a cordon of police
who led him to an unoccupied
area where he continued to march
alone-surrounded by 35 police
One of the three Temple stu-
dents who accompanied Garfinkel
to Washington commented that
"nobody on either side wants that
Nazi." Another counter-demon-
strator said "I support the Unit-
ed States' Viet Nam policy, but
nobody needs this Nazi fanatic .. .
he isn't by any means a spokes-

man for the United States."
Rockwell himself, who spoke at
an all-day "patriotic rally" to
"stand up for our boys in Viet
Nam," was arrested between
speeches after grabbing a Na-
tional Liberation Front flag from
Walter Teague, leader of the Com-
mittee to Aid the National Lib-
eration Front of South Viet Nam
(CANLF). Also appearing at Rock-
well's rally, held several blocks
from the Washington Monument,
on the Mall, were Herb (The
Skull) Booker of Hell's Angels Mo-
torcycle Club and Michael Lee
Lutman of the Ku Klux Klan.
The rally drew a crowd of about

In addition, the idea of book
buying stations is quite unique.
Formerly students would bring
their books to the SBX and re-
ceive only a percentage of the
second-hand value. When the
bookstore sold the book the stu-
dent would receive the remainder.
However, if the text was not sold
the student would be required to
take back the book and at the
same time return the percentage
originally given to him.
Assured Sale
Now the stud nt is assured of
selling his used texts if they
correspond to the 115 specified
course listings.
The new dimensions of an SBX
as incorporated in The Bookery,
have received endorsements from
various groups on the University
campus. Favorable comments have
been made by VOICE, Young
Democrats, Interquadrangle Coun-
cil and Young Republicans.

lies ultimately in the enthusiasm !
of the student body, the commit-
tee feels, they are asking for stu-

Research grants totalling $130,474 have been awarded to 57
University faculty members.
The money has been made available from faculty research
funds and the Horace H. Rackham Fund, Freeman D. Miller,
associate dean of the Graduate School reported yesterday. The
grants become effective January 1.
Scholarly areas covered include the physical, biological, social
and health sciences, fine arts and languages and literatures.
Informed sources indicate that the Association of Producing
Artists will not return to campus next fall. Although they have
been invited by the Professional Theatre Program to renew their
contract, they are not expected to do so.
The American Conservatory Theatre, a new company per-
forming here this winter, may receive a bid to play here in
repertory next fall if they are enthusiastically received this season.

"I don't think that I interf erred in any way with the students'
right to express themselves," Col Arthur Holmes, director of the
Late headquarters of the Michigan Selective Service told The
Daily yesterday.
Holmes was expressing his reaction to charges of "thought
control" in his role in the reclassification to I-A status of four
University students who were arrested in the Viet Nam protest.
He said he had not talked to a lawyer about the possibility of
American Civil Liberties Union court action against him.
Grayson L. Kirk, president of Columbia University, will be
the speaker at the University's midyear graduation exercises,
Dec. 18. Graduates of both the summer and winter terms of 1965
may attend the event at 2 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
