A HASTILY-organized rally yester-
day attracted about 300 demonstrators,
with more than 100 people joining the'

the protesters called "Stephen Biko

student killed in prison in 1977 after

The UC Divestment Coalition's list of
demands calls for a public hearing
before April 24 to allow members of the
university community a voice in the
report on divestment to be submitted to
THEY ALSO demanded that the
report be submitted at the May 16-17
regents meeting in Berkeley rather
than at the June 21 meeting in Santa
Cruz, as currently planned.
The coalition also demanded that the
regents move the May meeting from
the Lawrence Hall of Science to a cen-
tral campus location to make it more
accessible to concerned students and
Finally, they asked to meet with one
of the regents. Five demonstrators
discussed the demands with Assistant
Vice Chancellor B. Thomas Travers,
Vice Chancellor Watson Laetsch, and
John Cummins, executive assistant to
Chancellor I. Michael Heyman.
Cummins said the university officials
discussed the demands but told the
protesters that the regents must make
any decision about divestment. He said
he would forward the demands to
University of California President
David Gardner. Cummins called the
meeting . "friendly and non-
confrontational" and said "everyone
wants to keep it like that."
University spokesperson Ray Colvig
said UC police locked Sproul's front
doors Wednesday as "safety
precaution." Sinice the demonstrators
have not blocked all entrances to
Sproul, the action is not illegal,
Heyman said the protesters have not
violated the university's rules concer-
ning conduct during demonstrationos
and that the university would take no
disciplinary action unless they violated

"The situation is getting more and
more serious," said Baloyii, "hopefully
(the restraining order) will give both
sides a chance to get together and work
JONES SAID he was hopeful that
violence could be avoided. "I'm op-
ptimistic," she said, "that the school will
divest its stocks."
Jones said that administration is
playing a waiting game but has been
frustrated by increasing support and
cohesiveness among the protesters.
"It's grown every day," he said. "It
began as 20 people who were going to sit
for three hours but then more and more
people have come to support it."
TONY GLOVER, 23, a Columbia
graduate and one of the protesters,
agreed that a waiting game is being
played. The administration is trying to
divide students, he said. Last week
court injunctions ordered 14 protesters
to appear in court.
"It's interesting that while the
majority of court injunctions were
given to blacks the majority of people in
front of Hamilton Hall are white. But
there's been a lot of togetherness and
multiracial movement," he said.
A spokesman for the administration
denied that the university'is trying to
divide students. In any case, students
doubt that police will be used when the'
restraining order runs out Monday af-
Teach-in draws 500
By JACKIE YOUNG
Special to the Daily
NEW YORK-The educational
system for blacks in South Africa is
"designed to create a bunch of slaves,"
Jose De Sousa, a student from South
> Africa who is studying at Columbia
University told a crowd of about 500
gathered for a teach-in at the school's
McMillan Auditorium in Dodge Hall.
The teach-in yesterday at Columbia
University was part of the protest by
students at the school who are opposed
to the school's investments in com-
panies doing business in South Africa.
THE SCHOOL HAS $39 million in-
vested in such corporations. Protesters
want the school to divest from these
In South Africa, De Sousa said that he
was forced to get up at 4 a.m. to attend
school and that before going to school
he had to sell newspapers to earn
money to pay for school uniforms and
"I was taught to become an element
of the workforce that would secure
white majority rule," he said.
