A proposal recommending that the University provide a
$250,000 loan for the establishment of a parent-controlled
child care corporation was released Sunday by Vice President
Robert Knauss through the Office of Student Services
According to Knauss, the proposal has been released in
order "to spark discussion and comment throughout the
community." It will be submitted formally to the executive
officers when all available information has been assembled.

uncontested balloting.

and Qui Nhon, but were nothing
comparable to the outbursts in Da

were killed and nearly 60 wound-

Opponents of Thieu and inde-

about the proprietysof the vot-

charges that the balloting was
One of these came from Ngo
Cong Duc, publisher of an anti-

cused the government of having
distributed 3 million blank vot-

low voter turnout."
Covering the election in Long

American television crew said it
filmed a voter casting two ballots.

University faculty representatives overwhelmingly en-
dorsed late last night a proposed policy banning most classi-
fied research from the University.
Senate Assembly, the faculty representative body, asked
an end to all secret research except "in cases where the pro-
posed research is likely to contribute so significantly to the
advancement of knowledge as to justify infringement of the
freedom to publish openly."

night, sheriff's officers reported.

a cut on his left hand, he said,
and the reason for his death was
not apparent.
Jailer Willie R. Romans, 50.'
was hospitalized at Parkland with
what the spokesman said was a
heart attack.
Two prisoners received minor
injuries and were also taken to
the hospital. They were Benja-

E. Clayton, 25, both of Dallas.
The trouble began when a fire
was reported on the downtown
jail's 11th floor. A sheriff's de-
partment spokesman said the dis-
turbances quickly spread to the
12th floor where other inmates
began setting mattress fires.

This guideline would apply to
research that is classified "for

of the project are open but the

"Access only" projects would be
the one remaining area of classi-

by the Schuman proposal.
Last night, as in previous As-
sembly debate it was the academic
arguments against secrecy in the
University community, andnot
the military nature of much of
present University classified re-
search, that provided the impetus
for change.
Meanwhile, the fate of the pres-
ent clearing-house for secret re-
search, the Classified Research

clear. Schuman emphasized last
night that CRC not be "done away
with" but rather that the faculty-
student committee be reorganized

four-dak revolt at the maximum
security prison three weeks ago,
The New York Times reported
In, a detailed, hour-by-hour ac-
count of the prison insurrection,
the Times relates how a "chance
misunderstanding" in the prison
yard climaxed with the loss of 41
The incident in the prison yard
occurred as a white inmate-said
said to be a defensive coach for a
prison football team-showed a
young black inmate some line-
men's moves and feints.
A prison officer coming into the
yard thought the two prisoners
were fighting and-approaching
the men from the rear-placed his
hand on the black man's shoulder.
"Acting apparently on in-
stinct, (the inmate) spun around
and struck the guard" -a stun-
ning breach of prison order, the
Times reported.
Later that evening when the
two inmates were summoned for
questioning, a rumor circulated
among the prisoners that the two
men had been beaten.
Next morning on their way to
breakfast a group- of prisoners
"burst into rebellion" and the re-
volt was on.
Piecing together the ensuing
story through interviews with leg-
islators, lawyers, doctors and ne-
gotiators and by examining tapes,
films, letters and notebooks from
inside the prison, the Times re-
cords the following tension-filled
days from both inside and out-
side the prison yard.
Although the new Commissioner
of Correction Russell Oswald ini-
tially agreed to negotiate with the
prisoners on their demands as the
days ticked away with no settle-
ment made, Oswald felt pressured
to take further action.
At this time rumors of atroci-
ties by the rebels were spreading
among prison and state officials
and two days later troops of state
police stormed the prison, squash-
ing the revolt.
"There was virtually no resist-
ance from the prisoners" the
Times reported, though over 40
fatalities occurred.
After the riotwas quelled pri-
soners were forced- to crawl on
their elbows and knees into the
cell block with their faces in the
dirt, the Times reports.
