Antioch on strike
Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio,
has mailed expulsion notices to 30 stud-
ents after a confrontation in which two
deans were blocked from entering student-
occupied buildings and were pelted with
eggs. The building takeover is part of a
month-long student strike over the uncer-
tain status of financial aid at the college.
The striking students want a written con-
tract with the administration to guarantee
financial aid until they graduate. School
officials said they cane only assure aid for
the next two years because of impending
federal and college budget cutbacks.
The Friends of the Rainbow People's
Party (RPP) have lost an initial legal
battle with the University over RPP's
right to rent Hill Auditorium. A suit filed
by-the Friends was overturned by Circuit
Court Judge Edward Deake on the
grounds that he lacked jurisdiction and
that the suit lacked specificity in its
claims. The suit arose over the refusal of
University President Robben Fleming to
rent Hill to RPP for an election boogie
on -April 1, 1972. RPP attorney Donald
Koster indicated he will apply for a re-
hearing, and if that fails, he will appeal.

Under the current code, fraternities, so-

"We can't cram a new code down the
Council's throat," remarked Hawkins.
"It's not worth having it on the books if
it's not enforced.
THE CITY IS already letting go five of
its housing inspectors so that it can in-
crease salaries for the police and fire de-
partments," he said.
Feldkamp said he urged the city three
years ago to adopt a code that would pro-
vide for kitchen inspections in small group
units. However, the city cl-timed these
units, because of their fraternal nature,
are like private homes, and should not
be subject to inspection.
