The department is considering
making the aren a national his-
tomical landmark.
When Soory was asked if the
Coalition would reoccupy the
area-referred to as Blanket
Hill-if the department does not
declare the area a national land-
mark, or if the judge vacates
his order, he said, there is a
possibility, at this point, that we
are discussing tactics within that
cotntingency .
"IF THAT is the end result of
the political bickering," he said,
"there will be some militant,
mass action."
The Coalition began a 62 day
occupation of BIlanket Hill on
May 4 o this year. The occupa-
tion resulted in the arrest of
193 protesters. Since the arrests
the southeastern Ohio campus
has been the site of two more
I a r g e demonstrations. Sixty
more arrests were made.
Among the members of the
Coalition are several students
who were injured at Kent in
t97au including Alan and Chic
Canlora and Greg Rambo. Ram-
bo is paralyzed from the waist
down,. for life, as a result of his
wounds. Lynn Stovatl, a former
Ohio National Guardsman, who,
was at Kent on May 4, 1970, butt
not involved in the shooting, is
also a member.

The history of the effort to
stop the gym dates back to
1965, when plans to build a new
gymnasium at Kent State began.
The site of the shootings was

THEN IN 1971, Kent State of-
ficiels considered construction
of a bi-level parking structure
on the Prentiss parking lot,
where two of the four victims
of the shootings lay mortally
wounded on May 4, 1970.
Students demonstrated at that
timelC and the University later
mov ed the .construction of the,
parking structure, to a 'sore
convenient campus location."
In 1973 Kent State officials
adopted seven sites as possible
locations for the new athletic
facility. The site of the shootings
first appeared on this list.
But the seven sites under con-
sideration were not made public
until November of 1976, when
the University announced that
the gym would be constructed
an Blanket Hill.
"At that time we talked to
many University and state offi-
cial,s hoping to dissuade them

explained Fry. "But we saw
that we weren't being heard. On

massacre we took Blanket Hill."

WASIIINGTON ('',-President
Carter ordered all of the na-
tion's intelligence-gathering ag-
encies placed ueder the control
of CIA director Stansfield Tur-
ner yesterday in an attempt to
centralize direction of the spy
Turner, a classmate of Carter
at the U.S. Naval Academy, will
control the budgets and activi-
ties of all intelligence-gathering
agencies, which previously re-
ported to departments ranging
from Defense to Treasury.
THE PLAN does not affect
the Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation (FBI).
Administration officials de-
aied that the reorganization
would make Turner an "intel-

ligence czar" although he wilt
have greater responsibilities.
White House Press Secretary
Jody Powell said that while the
plan gives Turner new respon-
sibilities, the Defense Depart-
ment retains "the authority they
believe they need to accomplish
their mission," and the National
Security Council (NSC) role is
gives the NSC, directed by Car-
ter's national security assistant,
Zbigniew Brzezinski, a leading
role in overall direction of the
intelligence community.
Although the plan gives the
CIA director unprecendented,
wide-ranging authority, Powell

refused to say whether it would
make him the most powerful
director of central intelligence
the nation has had.
The press secretary said the
plan was devised "to provide a
more coordinated and therefore
more effective intelligence-gath-
ering operation while at the
same time avoiding an overly
centralized intelligence comm.u
nity which might be too power-
The reorganization attemejat is
not the first undertaken since
the nation's intelligence opera-
tions expanded throughout the
government over the past 35
years. Previous attempts to co-
ordinate the various intelligence
agencies have had little success,

the near future. But instead of
tearing it down, they will be fix-
ing it up.

cording to University planner,
Fred Mayer, if the state ap-
proves the plan and allots the
funds quickly, work can begin in
one to two years.
MAYER SAID developing lab-
oratory space was one of the
main objectives in the renova-
tion, but not the only one.
Mayer said that among other
changes, the Natural Science
Building needs a new roof, new

mechanical system for heating
and air conditioning, a new
electrical system, and altera-
tions to comply with fire and
handicap codes. Also, he recom-
mended energy savings mea-
stires be installed, such as im-
proved insulation, and replace-
ment of interior finishes, lab
benches and equipment.
Although he said it was hard
to estimate the cost of the pro-
posed renovations before they
began, he put it somewhere in
the range of $12-15 million. He
said the cost would be one-third
