JACKSON, Miss.. (W A Mississippi
Highway Patrol official said yesterday
that law officers were justified in firing
into a women's dormitory at Jackson
State College May 14. but he conceded
there was no need to fire into a crowd in
front of the dormitory.
Inspector Lloyd Jones. the ranking
state trooper on the scene the night two
young blacks were killed and 13 injured.
said he saw a sniper fire two shots from
the third floor of the dormitory.
Jones told the President's Commission
on Campus Unrest he was preparing to
attempt to disperse the crowd of 250-300
black students with tear gas when his
men opened fire.
Jones said he saw no need for disciplin-
ary action against his men although he
did not give the order to fire.
Jones insisted that officers opened fire
only after being fired on from the dor-
mitory and from their rear. One of the
black youths killed was near the dormi-
tory, the other across the street behind

highway patrol policy brought out in tes-
timony allowing the use of privately own-
ed weapons and ammunition.
Charles Snodgrass, administrative as-
sistant of the highway patrol refused to
answer questions about the all-white
make-up of the patrol on advice of his
lawyer. He said this was because of a
pending lawsuit attacking the all-white
nature of the force.

The University in a position paper
released yesterday said it will remain
neutral in -the contest between the
Teamsters' Union and the American
Federation of State, County and Muni-
cipal Employes (AFSCME) over who
shall be the bargaining agent for most
of the University's service and main-
However, AFSCME President Charles
McCracken said the University was not
being neutral and accused the admin-
istration of restricting the efforts of
AFSCME representatives to talk to
their members while Teamsters organ-
Izers are given no such resistance.
In another development, McCracken,
whose union presently represents about
2,400 University employes, said that an
AFSCME petition drive to counteract
the Teamsters' effort had met with
"very good" response.
