KENT STATE REMEMBERS:
Memorial marked by vigil ehants

(Continued from Page 1)
yesterday morning. After the service,
students rallied and were addressed by
12 speakers.
STUDENTS THEN marched around
campus chanting angry slogans against
Ohio Governor James Rhodes, who
called in the National Guard on campus
eight years earlier. The march began
with chanting of "Rhodes, you liar,
we'll set your ass on fire," as students
lit a cloth effigy of the Governor. The
tear gas incident came after the cam-
pus march.
Becky French, who. participated in
the vigil by standing on the spot where
William Schroeder was shot to death,
said, "I thought the occasion deserved
a memorial and that the injustice
should not be forgotten."
Schroeder's parents, in addition to
parents of the three other slain students
- Allison Krause, Jeffrey Miller and
Sandra Scheuer - attended the all-

night vigil but were not present at the
afternoon rally.
KENT STATE President Brage
Golding cancelled classes yesterday for
the more than 17,000 students at the
University's main campus. Many
students, however, chose not to par-
ticipate in the scheduled events.
One student, asked about those not at-
tending the rally, remarked, "They're
in the dorms, they're not very in-
terested," he said. "I just came down to
see what's going on - I don't care about
the event."
Daniel Ellsberg and activist lawyer
William Kunstler were scheduled to
speak at the rally but cancelled, leaving
American Indian Movement leader
Vernon Bellecourt and former Students
for a Democratic Society President
Clark Kissinger as the keynote
speakers.
ELLSBERG SENT a message to
representatives of the May 4 Task For-

. -

ce - which organized yesterday's
event - saying he couldn't make it to
Kent State because he was busy
protesting the Rocky Flats nuclear
weapons plant in Colorado and was
literally tied to the railroad tracks
feeding into the plant.
Alan Canfora, who was shot in the
stomach by National Guardsmen eight
years ago, recounted to the crowd what
had happened on the campus.
"I got behind the only tree and then
saw my roommate, Tom Grace, get his
foot blown apart by a bullet," he said.
CANFORA CREDITED the people
who demonstrated against the gym
construction last fall as responsible for

the upcoming retrial of-a $46 million
federal civil suit against Rhodes and
other defendants. The suit was brought
by parents of the dead students and
nine students wounded by National
Guard fire.
Barbara Child, a Kent State English
professor, was the first speaker. "The
shots were not accidental, they were
heard around the world and were one of
the reasons for the American pullout
from the war in Indochina," she said.
Yesterday's observance was more
peaceful than last year's, when hun-
dreds of people were arrested during
demonstrations protesting the gym
construction.
