Minority 0rwp Students Bar Whites From Campus At Hew York City College By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS City College of New York-the nation's largest tuition-free un dergraduate college--remained closed today as minority group Students barred whites from half the campus,. Militant blacks at Cornell University waited to see if the faculty would reconsider and drop charges stemming from an earlier demonstration, while protests continued at other campuses. About 150 black and Puerto Rican students sealed four gates on City College's South Campus Tuesday. Several hours later, President Buell G. Gallagher canceled classes for the school's 20,000 students. Police clipped chains the students had put on the gates, but the protesters stood shoulder- to-shoulder in a pouring rain and kept all whites outside. Three blocks away, about 200 white radicals began a sit-in in the administration building to support the blacks' demands for open enrollment for all high School graduates and a separate-but-not-autonomous school of black studies. STUDENT DEMANDS A City College spokesman said about 1,500 of the school's 12,000 day session enrollment is black or Puerto Rican. Another 3,000 attend night classes. The protesters contend the student body should reflect the city's high schools, which are about 52 per cent black and Puerto Rican. At Cornell, in Ithaoa, N.Y., a 16-member faculty council Tues day night asked the entire facul ty of 1,500 to meet today and accept the militants' demand to drop discipline against five blacks, which the faculty refused to do Monday night. The faculty has final power in disciplinary matters. About 245 sheriff's deputies from nearby counties remained near the campus, all armed with riot control equipment, at the request of Tompkins. County Sheriff Robert L. Howard. SDS RALLY Leaders of Students for a Democratic Society drew 6.000 students to a rally and asked them to stage a sit-in to back the blacks' demands. Cornell has 14.000 students, 250 of them blacks. Cornell President James A. Perkins banned guns from cam pus Tuesday, but made no move to pick up weapon?, including the shotguns and rifles the blacks displayed after seizing the student union-over the weekend. Meanwhile, in Washington, Sen. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., introduced a bill to provide imprisonment and fines for demonstrators who interfere with the operations of any school receiving federal funds. Nine students announced in Washington that they would re fuse to accept induction into the armed forces. They said more than 250 student body presidents and newspaper editors had signed a pledge taking that position. AT OTHER CAMPUSES New York--Students continued to sit-in at Queensborough Community College to protest the school's refusal to rehire a left-wing English professor. President Kurt R. Schmeller dismissed three other faculty members for joining the sit-in. Other protests continued peacefully at Queens .College. Brooklyn College and Columbia University. M i l w a u k e e , Wis.--Police cleared more than 50 students from a small campus chapel at Marquette University, where they gathered to protest the school's ROTC program. Marshall, Tex.--Students at all-Negro Wylie College rejected a trustees' rport on earlier disorders and said a class boycott was "entirely possible." The trustees had accepted student demands for more academic freedom and amnesty, but refused to fire President T. Winston Cole.

SPACE CENTER, Houston, Tex. (AP) -- The Apollo moon flight program is getting a new narrator. Paul Haney, "The Voice of Apollo," said he had been booted off the job after a series of acrimonious exchanges with Julian Scheer, chief of public affairs for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

Haney told newsmen at a conference Tuesday he had received orders to report to Washington Monday for a new job in NASA headquarters, Haney said the move came after weeks of "badgering" from Scheer. Scheer confirmed that Haney was getting a new Job, but had no comment on Haney'i account of what happened. Scheer said Haney'i new job would be to coordinate public affairs programs under develop ment. Haney had been chief of pub lie affairs for the Manned Spacecraft Center, the working home of the nation's astronauts, at an annual salary of $21.000. He acted as the mission commentator for the first two Apollo missions, interpreting the space flights for the world and playing tapes of astronaut radio talk.
