Riot Target
At Illinois
University of Illinois students
staged an eight-hour riot on Me-
morial Day.
It took 200 police officers and
150 volleys of tear gas bombs to
quiet the outbreak.
Members of two neighboring
fraternities, got fed, up with study-
ing for their exams and released
tension, they said, by starting a
water fight. It spread rapidly. and
soon 5,000 of the University's 25,-
000 students were involved.
Sherwood Lodge, a women's
dormitory, became theamain tar-
