THE LAST OF NASHVILLE'S rioting Negro students were
released from jail yesterday as the city's leaders began to attack
the roots of three straight nights of violence, the Associated
Press reported last night.
Dr. Edwin Mitchell, chairman of the Nashville Metropolitan
Human Relations Commission, announced that the last five
students arrested since "rioting began Saturday'night had been
released. "These students have had their charges dismissed and
the jail is now free of students," he said.
Although reports of scattered incidents continued last night,
the major violence began to abate Monday night, and streets
that had been filled with angry young-Negroes for three night
were clear.

THE FIRST ANNUAL PRE-LEGAL Institute will be held at
Eastern Michigan University on Saturday, April 15. The institute
which is sponsored by EMU's vien's Union Board in the College
of Arts and Sciences is designed to provide potential law school
applicants with information regarding admissions requirements
and procedures at numerous law schools.
According to Mike Conlin, student advisor to the Men's Union
Board, the institute will "also give participants an opportunity to
meet and talk with many judges and attorneys from the area who
"4 are considered outstanding members of their profession."
The principal guest speaker will be Joseph W. Louisell of
Detroit who Conlin calls a "nationally renowned trial attorney
considered a legal authority in his own right." In addition Uni-
versity Prof. Carl S. Hawkins will conduct a sample law school
class.
The institute will be held at EMU's McKenny Union with
representatives of 22 law schools in attendance, among them
Northwestern University and the Universities of Wisconsin, Con-
necticut and Kentucky. There is no charge for the forum which
begins at 9:30 after registration beginning at 8:30.
THREE UNIVERSITY LAW professors will discuss "How To
Bid for University Property-The Maynard Street Scandal" at 4
p.m. today in the Lawyers Club lounge. The panel is intended to
provide a review for law students in "Contracts" and "Corpora-
tions" courses who begin their exams May 1. The professors are
Beverley Pooley, Stanley Siegel, and Alfred Conard.
The discussion was prompted by an April 4 Daily story.

Rejuvenation

Of Union and League
To Attrct Students
By KATHY MORGAN
Rejuvenation of the Union and
League to provide attractive stu-
dent areas is the assignment of
the recently formed Facilities
Committee of the University Ac-
tivities Center.
An all-night study hall, coedu-
cational billiards and a permanent
art display are part of the ex-
pansion plans designed to draw
students to the Union and League
for entertainment and study.
"The Image of the facilities
which UAC now offers are dull in
comparison to our activities," ad-
mits Donald Tucker, '68A&D, UAC
president. The senior officers cre-I
ated the committee in February
to gain ideas from students on
the best way to "revitalize the
Union, giving it a student atmos-
prere instead of the present dark
and dingy look."
"We don't want to destroy tra-
dition," noted Lee Mary Danielson,
'69, committee chairman. "We
want to show tradition is young.
because the students are young,"
she said. "We want to find out
from students what they want."
The committee hopes to convince
the 12-man Union Board that they
can use space throughout the Un-
ion responsibly. When the alumni
offices are moved from the sec-
ond floor library, UAC hopes to
have a hand in remodeling the
room.
"It's a beautifulr oom, but we1
would like to make it more prac-
tical," Tucker explained, "by. keep-
ing it open 24 hours a day and
providing vending machines." 1
The committee will push for
women's rights in the billiard hallc
or the new coeducational ha. 1
Plans also include the main-
tenance of a permanent room for
student art displays. Running two
or three weeks, each show will
feature one or more students, de-

As to whether the program will
be renewed this summer when it

Nearly 400 demonstrators at the University of Wisconsin's
Madison, campus picketed yesterday in front of the law building there

Although picketers lined thu halls around the classroom where
the interviews were being held, the more than 50 students scheduled
for then} were allowed to pass through the lines and no incident
occurred.

and questioned by the picketers ir: the halls but they were allowed
to enter the interview room," Bob Zwicker, a past officer of the
Wisconsin chapter of Students fo" a Democratic Society who parti-
cipated in yesterday's demonstration, told The Daily last night.

there are not enough Ann Arbor

PROJECTED FIGURES:
Enrollment Shows Increase
For Spring, Summ'ter Terms

By WALTER SHAPIRO
Projected figures released yes-
terday by University Registrar
Edward G. Groesbeck indicate
that enrollment will be an es-
timated 9,614 students for the
spring half term and 12,186 stu-1
dents for the summer half term
this year.
Both figures include those en-
rolled in the spring-summer term.
This represents an increase of
five to six per cent over last year's
levels.
The projection depicts a stu-
dent body which will be composedI
of 57 per cent undergraduates
during the spring term and 49 per
cent undergraduates during the
summer term. A striking feature

India Leader
To Address
Convocation
The vice-president of India who
has just been named a candidate
for his country's presidency by
the ruling Congress Party will de-
liver the. commencement address
at the University, April 29.
Zakir Husain; vice-president of
India since 1962, was announced
as a presidential nominee by In-
dia's Prime Minister Indira Ghan-
di.
The commencehent convocation
will conclude the second major
ceremony of the Sesquicentennial
celebration, "Higher Education in
Tomorrow's World," which is at-
tracting several hundred educators
from all over the world.
More than 4700 diplomas will be
awarded in the exercises in Mich-
igan Stadium-or Yost Field House
in case of bad weather. Of those,
about 2000 will be master's or doc-
tor's degree.
Husain, who will take part in
the four-day conference preceding
commencement, is an author and
educator as well as public servant.
He was governor of India's pop-
ulous Bihar State, appointed by
the president, from 1957 until he
became the nation's vice-president
five years ago.
Husain, a Muslim like 10 per
cent of his countrymen, has been
chairman of World University Ser-
vice in Geneva and a member of
the executive board of the United
Nation s Economic, Scientific and
Cultural Organization (UNESCO)
in Paris.

'Picketers included a broad coa-
lition of students. Groups repre-
sented at the demonstration and
officially supporting the protest
were Wisconsin chapters of SDS,
Young Democrats, the Committee
to End the War in Vietnam and
several local groups , Concerned
Law Students, Concerned Black
Students and United Campus Ac-
tion.
The picketers held their rally
on Bascom Hill in front of the law
school building from noon to 3:30
and later sponsored two "learn-
ins" on the role CIA should be
allowed on campus. A "learn-in,"
something like a teach-in but not
quite the same according to Wis-
consin students, was also held
Monday night, before yesterday's
rally.
Eighteen university protection
police were present at the rally
and city and county police were
"on reserve" in case they were
needed, according to a spokes-
man of the Daily Cardinal, Wis-
consin's student hewspaper. No
arrests were made in what turned
out to be ,a relatively peaceful
demonstration.
However, according to Hank
Haslach, past president of Wis-
consin's SDS chapter, at least 10
Madison policemen were on hand
at the .demonstration in ' addition
to the university police.
Haslack called the presence of
city police to support the univer-
sity protection police a "signifi-
cant break in past university pol-
icy."
"After the Dow sit-in," Has-
lach continued, "Chancellor Flem-
ing proposed to the faculty and
administration that the university
permit the use of whatever force
is necessary to handle the situa-
tion.
"Presumably," Haslach said,
"that includes the national guard
since Wisconsin doesn't have any
state police except traffic police."

Parking on Campus: A History of Headaches

By. JIM HECK
First of Two Parts
Editor's Note: This two-part
feature on parking on campus
is to be included in a series on
college parking which is being
compiled by the University of
Wisconsin (Milwaukee) Post.
Back in 1827 when Simon Petu-
lak drove his two-toned, one-seat-
er Nevada Pinto onto the Detroit
campus, no University officials,
were very concerned with the
problems of student parking. Si-

Higher than Anticipated
Beach admitted that these ad-
vanced classifications were "high-
er than anticipaated," but refused
to consider them an accurate i-
dication of an increase in enroll-
ment. He noted that these figures
may only reflect the increasing
popularity of the advanced clas-
sification program.
The increase in advanced clas-
sification in the literary college
has not had a visible strain on
course offering for the spring and
spring-summer terms since Beach
indicated that only, three course,
