THIS WAS THE SCENE at North Hall this morning in the aftermath of last night's b6mbing of the University's ROTC building.
In front of the building is the Army staff car under which the explosion was detonated.



An explosion at 11 p.m. last night rocked North Hall
-the administrative center and classoom building for
the University's ROTC program.
An explosive placed under a car parked next to the
building detonated, igniting the building and shattering
one wall and several dozen windows. Firemen arrived
about 15 minutes later and quickly extinguished the
There was no one inside the building at the time and
no injuries resulted.
Deputy Police Chief Harold Olson said this morning he
did not know what type of explosive had been used, and that
there were no suspects, at this time.
He added that at this point all the police are able to do is
study the area of the bombing to discover what was used and
where it could have been obtained.
Olson also admitted that there seemed to be some simi-
larity between this bombing and the bombings last fall of the
Ann' Arbor Central Intelligence Agency office and the Uni-
versity's Institute for Science and Technology building on
North Campus.
University officials briefly toured the wreckage early this
morning but were unable to give an estimate of the cost of
.the damage. However, they said there did not appear to be
any structural damage resulting from the explosion.
The car under which the explosive detonated was a mill-
tary staff car assigned to Col. H. K. Reynolds, the commander
of fhe Army ROTC unit at the University. The 1967 Ford was
destroyed by the explosion.
University officials said the car was normally parked t
the site where it was found last night.
Police said there was no evidence that the building tiad
been entered.
Ann Arbor police have summoned investigators from the
bomb squad of the Federal Bureau of investigation. The FBI
investigators were expected to arrive early this morning.
Olson said the FBI was notified of the bombing because
federal property-the Army staff car-was involved.
The two rooms which appeared most damaged by the
blast were Navy ROTC offices and the central administrative
Windows were shattered on all sides of the building, but
predominantly in the front portion of the south wing where
the explosive was located. The impact of the explosion was
felt at least one and one-half miles from North Hall.
Olson said he also was unclear as to the extent of the
damages but guessed that they would amount to $15,000 to
$20,000. He described the damage as "extensive." Firemen
were forced to breaik through an inside wall to reach the
blaze set off by the explosion.
North Hall is 69 years old. It functioned as a homeopathic
hospital before it came into use as the center for Army, Air
Force and Navy ROTC operations.
Last night's bombing was the third such incident in the
last nine months. On Sept. 29, 19'68, the Ann Arbor office of
the Central Intelligence Agency was gutted by dynamite.
Dynamite was also found to be the explosive used in the
Oct. 14, 1968 bombing of the University's Institute for Science
and Technology building on North Campus.
There have been no arrests in conjunction with last fall's
No ROTC classes are Mield during the spring and summer
terms. However, staff members do use the building during
regular office hours.

Nixon said he considered the
$900 million increase to be "ne-
cessary to meet essential require-
ments now, and to maintain a
base for future action."

foreign aid pipeline which U.S.
aid proponents contend was dan- I

researchers to withhold about $1.5
million for the future.
"The notice from the NSF is
not very helpful. We have no idea
what the ceiling will be and in a
sense it tells us that your guess
is as good as ours," Norman says.
He adds that the ceiling may
not be set until September, well
into the fiscal year.
The ceiling will depend on
Congress, Norman says. It may
not appropriate enough money to
the NSF or it may give President
Richard Nixon an expenditure
ceiling for his entire budget.
The latter course would force
the bureau of the budget to im-
pose limitations on several pro-

Temporary location in the SAB came as a result to problems which
developed after the Alternative was scheduled to move into a room
at the Union.
Prof. Marc Ross of the physics department, one of the Alter-

pered by the unclear status of the Union, which is currently under
evaluation by members of a committee formed to study the Osterheld
report. The report recommends that student activities' offices be
moved to the Union.
