Syracuse University students,
seeking to gain support against

About 200 University of Mex-
ico students on an antiwar
march ran into unexpected op-
position when an equal number
of high school pupils harassed
and sought to block the march-
ers. The university was closed.
Police later evicted 140 anti-
war protesters from a building,
triggering a confrontation be-
tween students and national
guard troops that sent at least
nine persons to the hospital with
stab wounds.
A university medical school
faculty member said the stab

said a referendum showed that
71 per cent of its 1,200 students
endorsed the use of American

At Kent, Ohio, where the
shooting of the four students
last M o n d a y by National
Guardsmen led to the closing of
Kent State University, a student
drive was under way for a re-
opening of the school. How-
ever, officials said yesterday the
school would remain closed
through the spring term.'
More than a score of dental
students at the University of
Pennsylvania in white jackets
or uniforms circulated antiwar
petitions and demonstrated with
placards.nOne read: "Gunpow-
der stains dentures."
National Guardsmen patroled
the campus of the University of
Wisconsin in the fourth day of
violent antiwar demonstrations,
during which firefighters doused
40 to 50 blazes. The school's
president, Fred Harvey Harring-
ton, announced his resignation,
saying he had been planning to
quit before the outbreaks.
Thousands of University of
Texas students paraded in Aus-
tin in the face of a warning by
Gov. Preston Smith that he
would use whatever force was
necessary to quell violence. The
marchers kept to the sidewalks
in orderly fashion, and observed
traffic signals,

More than 6,000 students and
young people marched on the
California Statehouse at Sacra-
mento, walking 10 abreast and
quietly chanting "All we are say-
ing is give peace a chance."
Gov. Ronald Reagan was in
Southern California for a speak-
ing engagement.
Another nonviolent march
brought an estimated 1,000 stu-
dents to the federal building in
Newark, N.J., where they heard
speeches denouncing President
Nixon, Cambodia and the Kent
State shootings.
All 27 schools in Georgia's
university system as well as pri-
vate Emory University were
closed yesterday and today.
Classes also were canceled at the
University of Miami, the Univer-
sity of Florida and Florida State
University; and at the Univer-
sity of the South at Sewanee,
Maryville College and George
Peabody College for Teachers at
Nashville in Tennessee.

About 1,000 Florida State stu-

Florida Capitol and presented a
petition to legislators calling for

and an end to war. Gov. Claude

Kirk, who joined FSU students
in an all-night vigil at the
school Thursday night, planned
to spend last night on the soc-

Miami, talking with students.
In both Georgia and Florida,
students brought suit to pro-
