Mvrmvtu* MMUMMUM Continued From Page 1 AMBULANCE -- but said Sullivan is providing jthc ambulance service. ( Wilson said should the city of Fayetteville decide against a subsidy, the city could buy back the t h r e e ambulances it sold J. J. last fall and resume its ambulance operation. "I don't think they would need |any time." Wilson said. "It would be just a matter of tak- |ing the ambulances back and giving us a check." J. J. purchased the c i t y ' s three ambulances and b e g a n operating t h e s e r v i c e here Nov. 1. 19(8. It was agreed at that time that the city government would not subsidize the operation. However, the city retained an option for one year to buy back the three ambulances and equipment at a depreciated value if J. J. discontinued its service here. The company paid the city $3,500 for the vehicles. Fayetteville firemen had provided the service for the two- year period preceding J. J.'s arrival here. The firemen took over the operation when the fu- nearl homes dropped their ambulance service. The city suffered a net loss of $12,700 for the 23 months the firemen operated the service -$29,300 in revenues versus $42,000 net expenditures. This includes the $7.500 loss on the equipment.

At Harvard University, dissident students were told that acts of violence could force the Ivy League school to shut down. "The spectre of closing Hie university is profoundly distasteful to us," the Harvard University Corporation said in a statement Sunday. "We shall do everything in our power to avoid such a step and hope that all of us will work together to forestall the acts of violence which would make such a drastic action necessary.'

There have been no violent incidents on campus since about 200 students seized University Hall last Wednesday and evicted school officials. The students were demanding an end to Harvard's Reserve Officer Training Corps program. Club-wielding police ended the sit-in Thursday, when 197 persons were arrested and 39 in Hired. THREE DAY STRIKE The police action touched off .. call for a three-day strike, which was joined by about 1,500 of Harvard's 15.000 students. Meanwhile, about 125 protesters at Stanford University in California continued their sit-in, now in its fifth flay, to protest classified reearch in the Applied Electronics Laboratory. The demonstrators held the lab, which is university-owned but independently operated. At San Francisco Stale College, scene of a four-month sin dent strike that ended in March, acting President S. I. Hayakawa said emergency rules on student conduct will be lifted today, but police will remain on campus. Hayakawa said students would now be permitted to hold outdoor rallies in the center of ELSEWHERE At other campuses: Ithaca, N.Y.--Cornell University's trustees said a center for black studies will open in September with a S240.000 budget. President James Perkins said the school would not be autonomous, as demanded by the Afro-American Society. Evanston, 111.--Northwestern University disciplined 21 Negro students who admitted participating in the invasion of a fraternity house. A band of Negroes damaged the Triangle fraternity house March 4, saying they were retaliating for the verbal abuse given a Negro girl by a frater- ity members. The disciplinary committee imposed two years' probation on some students, and a year's suspension and a year's probation on others. The committee also called on the Negroes to make restitution for damage caused during the raid. Austin, Texas--Nearly 1.000 peace marchers rallied on the state Capitol's lawn after a parade sponsored by the University of Texas Committee to End the War in Vietnam. High school students and off- duty soldiers were among the marchers in the orderly demonstration. Mobile, Ala.--Mobile State Junior College holds classes today for the first time since April 2, when unrest closed the predominantly Negro school of 900 students. President S.D. Bishop said a senate of students, faculty and administrators had been created to solve problems. Mmsbwiri UnioR Showdown LONDON AP) -- Prime Minister Harold Wilson's leadership of the government and ruling Labor party was threatened today as his administration moved toward a showdown with trade unions over the curbing of Britain's wave of crippling strikes. Wilson appeared to be facing the deepest crisis of his five- year rule, with his Cabinet deeply divided and the unions, backbone of the Labor movement, in open revolt against the proposed strike curbs. The Guardian, staunch supporter of the government, questioned Wilson's continued leadership in an editorial today and Ray Gunter, a faithful trade un ionist and Wilson's labor minis ter until he quit in a huff last year, said in an interview: "I see no hope of the Labor party winning the next election--certainly not under its present leadership." But Wilson appeared determined to press for urgent enact ment of legislation to curb strikes and called on his Cabinet for backing. Earlier, the government ap-. proved more belt-tightening j measures designed to take away a multimillion-dollar slice of the British consumers' spending money over the next 12 months to cut the buying of imported goods. The measures, a government, secret, aim at drawing off the equivalent of 960 million in purchasing power. Chancellor of the Exchequer Roy Jenkins is to unveil the measures in his annual budget message to Parliament Tuesday. Deflationary moves of this kind since the Labor government came to power in October 1964 have sent the government to new lows in the national opinion charts. The most immediate threat to Wilson, however, stems from his proposed reforms of labor laws. Domaqed By Fire TURVILLE HEATH. England (AP) -- A fire has wrecked a kitchen, a staff bungalow and servants' quarters at Turvillc Grange, the country estate of Prince Stanislas and Princess Loe Radziwill, brnthcr-in law and sister of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.
