Harvard students voted a large voice in setting up a to ilack suspend their strike for seven days after the university agreed to reduce the status of the Reserve Officers Training Corp to an extracurricular activity. Stanford University protesters ended a nine day sit-in at an electronics lab. A new protest by a breakaway group of Students for a Democratic Society at Columbia University fizzled when it failed to get any widespread support. The dissidents at Atlanta University Center, a six-college complex, were demanding that the schools be renamed for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and that white trustees resign. One of those locked in was Dr. Hugh M. Gloster. president of Morehouse College, King's alma mater and part of the complex. He said he would resign rather than accede to the demands under duress. KING WALKS OUT The Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.. a Morehouse trustee, walked out of the room Friday declaring his family wanted no part of the tactics protesters were using in seeking to honoi his slain son. In Cambridge. Mass.. a mass meeting of 3,500 Harvard students voted 2-1 to suspend the studies program. .hey would continue the class boycott. Harvard has about 15.000 students, of whom 6,000 arc undergraduates. The strike suspension came after the Harvard Corporation, a seven-man governing board which with the Overseers sets long-range policy, generally endorsed a faculty motion reducing ROTC to extracurricular status. SIT-IN ENDS Stanford's sit-in was ended when university President Kenneth S. Pitzer agreed to keep the building closed to all but maintenance personnel for one week. The students said they would meet again Arpil 26 to dc cide further moves. The sit-ins had been protest ing military-connected research at the Applied Electronics Labo ratory. At Columbia the latest sit-in was held by dissident members of the SDS who divided over tactics with their fellow radicals. After six hours in Hamilton Hall they left commenting, "Tactically, we made a mistake." The regular SDS group wants to concentrate on "open enrollment" for Negro graduates ol city high schools while the splinter group seeks an end to the varning in all forms of ciga- ·ette advertising. Dr. Luther L. Terry, now chairman of the private National Interagency Council on Smok- ng and Health, added in his testimony before the House Commerce Committee Friday, that --More than 45,000 American:, are going to die prematurely by July 1 "from causes which we relieve are connected with ciga rctte smoking." --More than 250,000 ,, _ . . . people will take up cigaretl smoking by the same date. --More than 12Vz million excess days will he lost from work "because of higher rates of disease which exist among person: have ever smoked RTOC program Navy Refuses To Concede Fuel Thefts Uncovered By Civilian WASHINGTON (AP) - The Navy has granted John McGee a clean record and a pay raise. but rejected a senator's contention that he was responsible for exposing multi million-dollar thefts of U.S. fuels in Thailand. Secretary of the Navy John II. Chaffee told McGee, a civilian fuel inspector, he would be transferred from the Navy Fuel Supply Office in Washington to another post in the continental United States and given a new chance "to perform satisfacton- redited by Sen. cials. I find no basis for commending you." McGee said. "I haven't con tended I uncovered the thefts. I said the procedures being used were responsible for the thefts. I never said my supervisor was guilty of fraud. I said he was signing for the receipt of fraudulent deliveries and that is ccr- ainly true."

"But in view of the fact that without Mr. McGce's coura geous action the general system of corruption concerning American gasoline supplies in Thailand would neither have been exposed nor brought to public attention, there are some aspects, of the Navy's grudging action which riislurb mo deeply.
