BERKELEY, Calif. (R)j - An
eight-hour meeting of the Berke-
ley City Council broke up yester-
day with hundreds of protesters
hurling taunts, curses and abuses.
Enraged that the council had
refused to grant their demand
that a block of Telegraph Avenue
near the University of California
be sealed off for a July 4 rally,
the audience of more than a thou-
sand stormed out yelling curses
and insults.
The council did decide to lift
provisionally the curfew in effect
from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. since Sat-
urday. The demonstrations began
Friday night.
Shouts of "No, no, no;" "Pigs."
"dogs," and "We'll kill you," and
obscenities punctuated the meet-
The council listened to audience
members plead their cause and
lleap verbal abuse on police for
more than six hours.
It wound up the confused mara-
thon session by passing a substi-
tute resolution, 5-4, to offer the
nearby Sather Gate parking lot
for the rally. The original motion
to block off Telegraph was side-'
tracked in the confusion.
"It is clear they would rather
provoke itconfrontation between
us and the police than close off
a block for a day,"'said one lead-
er, Peter Camejo, a suspended
Berkeley student.
Camejo blamed Mayor Wallace
Johnson for "being the hand-
maiden of the business commun-
ity" in denying Telegraph Avenue
to the proposed rally
Johnson denied charges that po-
lice had started the disturbances
Friday night by moving in when;
Telegraph was already clear. He
refused to lift unconditionally the,

on land transactions
Notes danger in permitting officials
to buy property near state colleges
Atty. Gen. Frank Kelley issued a report yesterday clear-
ing Michigan State University President John A. Hannah of
any conflict of interest involving land transactions near the
MSU campus.
Although Hannah's business activities were not in vio-
lation of the conflict of interest provisions in the 1963 state
constitution, consideration "might be given" by university
governing boards to limiting?

About one police officer out of ten in U.S. high crime rate

However, police brutality is not necessarily an outgrowth

$1,242,OO) HUD LOAN


to build on North Campus

A new co-op will be built on
North Campus with the first
loan from the Department of
Housing and Urban Develop-
ment to a private student
HUD yesterday granted In-
tercooperative Council a long
term loan of $1,242,000 for con-
struction of the new co-op be-
hind Baits Housing.
ICC has been working toward
a federal loan for 12 years, said
Luther Buchele, ICC head, with
the help of 'Assistant Director

of Student Community Rela-
tions Dr. Peter Ostafin.
The new co-op will house 210
residents, 72 women and 138
men. Construction is scheduled
to begin in October. ICC hopes
the building will be ready for
occupancy in fall 1969. .
The loan will be repaid over
the next 50 years from ICC
Buchele said the loan also is
the first federal grant made to
any student cooperative, as well
as the first awarded to a stu-
dent group not directly con-
nected with a university.

The three story co-op wil
contain nine separate houses on
the second and third floors. All
will be connected to lounge and
dining areas on the first floor.
"The concept of the building
is to create the intimacy of a
house," Buchele said. "Our res-
idents don't like huge, imper..
sonal groups or the long cor-
ridors of a dorm. They wantto
feel at home and they don't
want the isolation of a large
apartment house either."
Lounges and dining rooms
will be small to maintain the

feeling of intimacy, he ex-
All houses will have facili-
ties for coeducational living.
The building was designed by
the Toronto architecture firm
of Tampold and Wells, who
have designed co-ops for many
Canadian universities.
ICC completed purchase ar-
rangements with the Univer-
sity last fall for a 2,9 acre site
on North Campus. Funds were
raised by mortgaging present
facilities and through contribu-
tions from former members and
University faculty.

But not too radical. If it came
down to Nixon and Humphrey,
Dupont would swallow hard and
support HHH because "the evil
represented by Nixon is far great-
er than that by Humphrey."
When Eric Chester asked him
how he could ever support the
Vice President - "who among the
politicians of this country is the
epitome of the schlepps" - Du-

criticism that could. result from
such ownership."
The attorney general's ruling
was requested by" Rep. Jack Faxon
(D-Detroit) last November fol-
lowing a story in The Daily which
revealed details of Hannah's real
estate transactions.
The constitution prohibits a
state officer from entering into
any contract with the state "which
shall cause a substantial conflict
of interest," Kelley noted.
In Hannah's case, Kelley ex-
plained, the absence of a con-
tract with the state "leads to the
conclusion that acquisition of land
adjacent to the university in and
of itself does not violate the con-
stitutional provision."
However, Kelley warned of 'po-

received favorable reaction from
an administrative committee in-

However Walter B. Rea, the
present director who is retiring
