(ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, FEBRUARY T, 19W Alabama U. Clams Down After Riots Negro Excluded From Classes By Trustees TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The angry mobs which exploded into numerous acts of violence yesterday to win exclusion of a Negro student from University of Alabama classes were missing today as the school went quietly about its business. Many Alabama state highway patrolmen were about the campus with nothing to do as news spread that the University Board of Trustees had excluded Autherine Lucy, 26-year-old Birmingham secretary, "until further notice." Miss Lucy did not appear on the campus this morning. Her 8 a. m. class met without incident. A spokesman for her said her future plans are uncertain. She was admitted to school last week under a federal court order. Disturbances began Friday night, some 12 hours after she attended her first class. Miss Lucy is the first of her race to enter the 125- year-old school. Shouting anfl Singing The disturbances culminated in a wild day of shouting, singing, marching mobs yesterday before the board action was announced. Police used tear gas in attempting to break up the massed demonstrators. A board statement said the action was taken "in view of recent occurrences on the campus . . . and the acts and threats of violence participated in by outsiders, for the safety of Autherine Lucy, . a student recently admitted under the order of the federal court, and for the safety of other students. •ad at Hodttr BMmbtM <rf tw University c* Alabamn, »n<J only tor that reason . . . The statement said further that the board, "exercising th« police power of the University of Alabama for the safety of those on the campus . . . excludes Autherine Lucy until further notice from attending classes at the university. By invoking the police power of the university, the trustees laid the groundwork for « legal defense if they are charged with violating terms of a 1955 federal court order opening the school to Negro students. While most of those taking part in the demonstrations appeared to be students, Dean of Men Louis Corson said the disorder was led by a "hard core of outsiders." "Workers from a Tuscaloosa area tire plant and foundry were identified on the campus yesterday when university officials were cursed and struck with rocks and eggs. Windows of a car in which Miss Lucy was driven across the campus were smashed. Dr. 0. C. Carmichael, university president, had lold faculty members that unless law and order were restored on the campus, "it may be necessary to close up shop. He later said there was reasonable hope that order wil shortly be restored. BRIBE (Continued from Page 1) Sen. Knowland of California, the GOP leader, will press for Senate approval of a resolution proposing a special committee investigation of the affair. He said what Hennings does about it is up to Hennings. Gore said in a separate interview he will follow Hennings lead if the latter orders an immediate investigation. It was obvious they could overrule any objections by the third subcommittee member, Sen. Curtis. Curtis said he thinks the special committee proposed by Johnson and Knowland should undertake the inquiry. He noted that Case has not announced that he is a candidate for re-election and thus is not involved in a campaign over which the subcommittee has jurisdiction.
