Capote in the clink
Arthur Truman Capote talks to newsmen yesterday as he enters
Orange County, Calif. jail to surrender himself to sheriff's of-

IN NEW YORK:
Davis plans to fight
extradition to Calif.
NEW YORK (N) - Angela Davis will fight her extradition
to California to face charges of murder and kidnaping, her
lawyer said yesterday.
Davis, the black militant accused of purchasing four guns
used in a courthouse escape attempt in which four persons
'including a judge were killed in San Rafael, Calif., Aug. 7, was
arraigned before Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Thomas
Dickens, who gave her the choice of waiving or refusing extra-
The basis for the rearraignment was an extradition order
signed by Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller Wednesday night.
"I refuse to consent to the State of California," was the
only comment Davis made at the proceedings.

Special To The Daily
KENT, Ohio - A rally at noon today will climax a quiet
yet tense week following the indictments of 25 Kent State
University students and faculty for their alleged role in last
May's disorders here.
Over 30 colleges and universities have indicated support
for today's activities, which were discussed at a meeting
yesterday by some 3,000 of the school's 22,000 students.
The class moratorium originally planned here will not
take place because of a state law passed this summer which
prohibits the interruption of classes, and because of a faculty
directive that scheduled classes must be held all day.

In a letter sent last week to
Robert Vinter, acting dean of the
social work school, the Chicanos

Chicano applicants for the winter

of the group, had sought to ob-
Eureste said the group wanted
the names of the applicants in
order to contact them and make

After Monday's protest, Siegel
said he had misunderstood the re-

said, "We are not permitted to re-

When the names of the prospec-'

Student Government Council is
sponsoring a rally and workshops
today as a part of the morator-
ium of classes planned in support
of the recently indicted faculty
and students at Kent State Uni-
The rally will be on the Diag at
noon, and the workshops in the
Undergraduate Library Multi-Pur-
pose room at 1 p.m.
Various campus groups, includ-
ing the Residential College, which
is suspending classes for the day,
support the action.
SGC President Marty Scott, said
that the two major aims of the
rally and workshops are "to ex-
press solidarity with those in-
dicted," and to "encourage think-
ing and discussion about the im-
plications" of the arrests of the
Kent State 25.
SKC members last night went
to Kent State to bring in a speak-
er who "really knows something,"
"It's a bad time for a morator-
ium, but we didn't plan that," he
added. "If a people can't sacrifice
going to class, we hope they'll
come to the rally and discussion."
Scott hopes to have people come
from the Diag to the UGLI for
informal discussions with the
speakers about the situation at
Kent State and the condition of
civil liberties in the United States.
He stated, however, that any sub-
ject is open for discussion.
New Mobe Coordinator David
Gordon issued a statement yes-
terday supporting the morator-
ium. "We ask that the university
community respond to the call for
a moratorium today to support the
students at Kent State. We ask
that not only the case of repres-
sion and murder at Kent State be
discussed today, but that o t h e r
government repression be discus-
sed as well."
"We don't have anything speci-
fic planned, but we are supporting
the action of the SGC," Gordon
Students who said they would
participate in the moratorium be-
lieved it hadn't been publicized
enough. One student, while stat-
ing his support for the boycott of
classes, said that, "There j u s t

Scott, however, said that "the
rally and discussions are more im-
portant than the moratorium." He
hoped to organize the discussions
under group leaders, but said that
"all we have organized right now
are informal discussions w i t h

Union. "Although everyone must

about marking the ,site at which
thousands of Jews were executed
during the two-year occupation.
Rabbi Gerald Goldman conclud-
ed the rally with a prayer for
Soviet Jewry, after which the par-
ticipants marched by candlelight
to the Diag.
People joined the rally until
close to 300 people were dancing
around the Diag to the accom-
paniment of Israeli music. This
was part of a celebration of the
Jewish holiday, Simhas Torah,
which commemorates the begin-
ning of a new cycle of reading the
Jewish laws and history.

A University committee re-
leased the results of a survey
which claims that 75 per cent
of the teaching fellows here are
"satisfied" with their work.
But Alison Hayford, chairman
of the approximately 100-mem-
ber Teaching Fellows Union and
one. of the first teaching fellows
to learn of the results, says the
survey is "useless and invalid."
Because only 620 of the teach-
ing fellows who received the
survey answered it, Hayford says
there may "be an inherent bias
in those who returned it."
She also contends that many
questions in the survey "were of
poor quality and were ambig-
