HirwnJ Official: Wan Against Merc Violence CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) Harvard's governing body says further campus violence could shut down the institution, and it is urging the university community to work together to avoid such a "drastic action." · "The spectre of closing the university is profoundly distasteful to us," the Harvard University Corporation said in a lengthy statement issued Sunday night. "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." It said dissidents would not be allowed to force their views on the university through violence. Harvard officials declined to elaborate on the statement which did not indicate how long any shutdown might last.

Thirty-nine persons received minor injuries and almost 200 students were arrested in the incident. A strike by some 1.500 of Harvard's approximately 15,000 students began Thursday and is scheduled to last at least through today. A mass meeting of students was scheduled for this afternoon in Harvard Stadium to decide whether to extend the strike and to discuss the Reserve Officer Training Corps program and other issues involved.

(AP)-The first U.S. satellite designed to take a three-dimensional look at the earth's weather patterns rocketed into orbit today around the poles. The Nimbus 3 satellite carried instruments for seven research projects designed to develop a system for extending weather forecasts by up to two weeks on a worldwide scale. The 1,269-pound, butterfly- shaped spacecraft--heaviest yet in the U.S. weather eyt program--was launched late Sunday night by a team from the Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Confirmation that it reached its 686-mile-higli orbit was received at 1:45 a.m. PST today. The Nimbus 3, the first nuclear-powered weather satellite, has two $500,000 plutotonium-238 reactors in two-by-six-inch metal capsules. The power packs will extend working- life of the equipment to more than one year. The polar orbit gives Nimbus 3 a look at all the earth's weather as the glove revolves inside the satellite's orbit. taito in the News day a new constitution based on Mao Tse-tung's philosophy and naming Lin Piao as Mao's heir as ruler of China, a Peking broadcast said broadcast said.
