"This is a bad time and place,"
sighed Bryan Moore yesterday noon
)n the Regent's Plaza. "It's kind of
lepressing."
But, undaunted by a low turn-out
>n the first day of classes, Moore and
his fellow May 4th Coalition demon-
strators enthusiastically made the
most of an opportunity to sing, chant,
and expound their message: move
the Kent State gym.
THE gathering came only three
hours after a Supreme Court injunc-
tion halting construction of the new
building ran out. The university in
Kent, Ohio, may now legally begin
breaking the ground on which four
students were slain by National
Guardsmen in 1970.

So, according to Coalition member
Joanne Roths, the' issue :s more
"crucial" now than it was during the
summer when hundreds of people.
from across the country, mostly
students, pitched tents and spread
themselves out on "blanket hill" to
stall the construction.
"Personally, I think a half-built
gym would be a more important
monument than no gym at all,"
smiled the Eastern Michigan stu-
dent. She said that her goal is to
make a pilgrimage to Kent State and
bring home a brick from the gym.
ABOUT A dozen Coalition mem-
bers manned tables covered with
posters, literature, and t-shirts ("Re-
member Kent State, Move the Gym"
and "Long live the spirit of Kent and

Jackson State".)
A folk singer sang an emotional
recollection of the protest movement
of the late sixties to a slowly gather-
ing crowd, mostly curious brown-
baggers eating in the sun.
"I believe in it," stated junior Dan
Bedrosian who said he remembers
the Kent State shootings very well.
The latfd "should be preserved for its
historical significance," he argued.
BUT LUCY Doroshko, a former
student who was in junior high in
1970, explained that the protesters
are "making too much of a thing out
of it." She said that the May 4th
Coalition is "building up", the event
more than they should.
Diane Clark of the Revolutionary
Students Brigade opened the rally

with the help of a bull-horn: "We're
doing this so that everybody knows
what's been going down at Kent."
Clark introduced California's own
"Take the Hill" Bill who spent four
months at Kent this summer. The
bull-horn rested easily in his hand as
he told the group that the situation at
Kent State since May 4, 1970 shows
that "there is no humanity, no
morality, and no justice in Amer-
ica.
HE REPORTED that the cases of
the four slain students are in court.
He did not detail the cases.
Then, Bryan Moore predicted that
"hell will be laid with every goddamn
brick laid down there," to which the
small crowvd applauded.

THE UNIVERSITY is asking for a a second4
review of the case, said Chief ruling co
University Bargainer Joe Katulic,
because the faculty and administra- SPERR
tion feel that "a test of graduate sity's m
student assistanst (GSAs) is import- from fed
ant and necessary to better graduate Stanfordl
education."
Shlomo Sperka, MERC adminis-
trative law judge, recommended to
MERC that it direct the University to
sign the contract and recognize GSAs
as employes and not just as students.
The University also was ordered to f
compensate GSAs forlosses they and

appeal decision from MERC
ke up to eight months. And if
decision is appealed, a third

KA SAID that the Univer-
ajor argument was drawn,
deral precedent in the 1974
University case in which the

National Labor Relations Boara
ruled that research assistants (RAs)
are not employes under federal law.
Sperka said a minor premise of the
University's case was that the Michi-
gan Supreme Court has, in several
cases, ruled that GSAs are not
employes under state law.
Sperka contended that MERC is
not bound by federal decisions and
GSAs are employes within the mean-
ing of Michigan law.
GEO filed the ULP charge last
November when the University re-
fused to sign the contract until two
grievances remaining from the prior
contract were resolved or dropped.
The grievances concerned the ques-
tion of who is covered by the
contract.
WHILE WAITING for the. ULP

ERC decision

ruling, GEO leadership worked to
keep members rallied behind the
issue. Interest appeared lacking last
spring, with low turnout at member-
ship meetings and the shelving of a
possible strike.
But Clark said he hopes the
favorable ruling will encourage
members to show more concern for
the union. He said that if a heavily-
attended summer Steward's Council
meeting is any indication, he can
predict "sizeable interest from the
membership."
The ULP ruling comes at the same
time as a University decision to place
this year's 5.75 per cent GSA pay
increase in escrow. The University
plans to pay the funds retroactively
when the litigation between GEO and
the University is resolved.

ODD COUPLING
PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP( - Some-
times putting a square peg in a round
hole is a good idea, say computer de-
sign~ers.
Machines force square pins into
round holes at Honeywell's computer
manufacturing center here. Since the
holes - lined with a soft metal - are
smaller than the pins, the fit is
tighter, ensuring better electrical
connections for sensitive computer
parts.
