At Closed Meeting
Still Rages at 2 A.M.
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
Acting Managing Editor
and ROBERT MOORE
The faculty group planning t'o
stage a walk-out from classes on
March 24 is having serious second
thoughts about this course of ac-
There is a strong possibility that
the work moratorium will be can-
celled, a member of the group dis:
closd early this morning.
In a marathon meeting held at
the home of William Livant of
the Mental Health Research In-
stitute, the group weighed the
possibility of using other methods
to express its discontent with U.S.
policies in South Viet Nam.
The session was still in progress
at 2:30 a.m. this morning
No decision had been reached
and the group remained sharply
divided on the course of action
this protest should take.
No reasons for considering the
cancellation were specified. Mem-
bers of the group confided, how-
ever, that the overwhelming pub-
licity and increasingly political im-
plications of such a move have
prompted the reconsideration.
Since the meeting was private,
few details are known.
Three members of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs were asked to leave the
meeting. But the role of the ad-
ministration or other faculty
members in forcing last night's
reconsideration was not spelled
The group is known, however,
to be sharply divided itself. A
Daily reporter, permitted briefly
inside the meeting, said that the
room was crowded and the parti-
cipants appeared very tense.
They seemed shaken by the
events of the past few days and
disturbed by the weight, of their

to more than 45 members.
However, reaction to the pro-
posed work stoppage has also in-
tensified. Regents, University ad-
ministartors, state legislators and
some students have joined in con-
demning the walk-out.
The Senate has asked for dis-
ciplinary action against the group.
Although, several senators ex-
pressed doubt whether it is the
Senate's business to interfere in
The protesting professors have
repeatedly said they respect the
of their critics - especially Gov.
Romney and the Legislature.
The group has stuck to its
plans. It said early yesterday
morning that the Regents, who
hold their monthly meeting Fri-
day, will be requested for a one-
day leave of absence to conduct

In his meeting with Haun yes-
terday, Rothschild presented one
of the possible alternatives to the
overcrowding - a revision of the
Regents' by-law requiring all
freshmen to live in residence
"The point has been reached
where the benefits of this policy
will be outweighed by the disad-
vantages of crowding," said Roth-
schild. Haun pointed out that this
by-law is not related to the Office
of Residence Halls.
When asked what action had
been taken, Haun said that, be-
sides having the rooms investi-
gated to see which ones can hold
more students, he is trying to see
to it that all rooms will be pro-
vided with adequate furnishings.
Although Rothschild is primar-
ily concerned with the immediate
situation, he pointed out that the
