Authorities used tear gas and MaCe to clear out a small group of protesters who were sitting on a stairway and short hall leading to the basement office of the Story County Selective Service Board. ._ Other demonstrators near the entry to the building were dragged away and arrested, but police said they were unable to finish 'clearing the building when those at the bottom of the stairs linked arms. City Attorney James Bishop said police tried for 45 win- ntes to talk the demonstrators into leaving. Bishop and Assistant Story County Attorney William Gibbons said: "It was our opinion that we could not remove these people by any other means!" The demonstrators came stumbling out of the building after Thomas Lyttle. assistant police chief, set off a single tear gas canister in the hall way. Bishop said officers had to use Mace on some of those arrested and had to drag others into police cars.

Many Leave Dubuqu e Campus After Blacks, Whites Battle By Thomas Ryder (ReaisWr Staff Writer) DUBUQUE, IA. - Nearly half of the 950 students at the University of Dubuque are leaving the campus after racial turmoil spawned violence Wednesday night. The school's administrative council met in. emergency session at 2 a.m. Thursday and decided to allow students to choose to leave and receive the grades they have earned so far, or to remain and take final^ exams next week. Academic Dean John Knox Coit said the council made the decision because of the tense atmosphere on campus, in hopes of preventing violence. After an anti-war demonstration Wednesday afternoon on the Dubuque campus, protesters from Loras and Clarke Colleges arrived and the students decided to continue the demonstration through the night. About 150 of the 250 demonstrators marched to downtown Dubuque, chanting "The Kent State ^Four, how many more?" A fire broke out in the university's black cultural center, a two-story house adjacent to the campus. Fire Chief Robert Dunthy said the blaze was deliberately set but damage was moderate. Blame Fraternity U of D black students blamed members of Phi Omicron fraternity for the fire, citing con- frontations between fraternity members and blacks earlier in the day. In one incident, a white fraternity member attempted to haul down a homemade flag labeled "Kent \State, ft.I.P." which had been fun up the university flag pole. He was TJeterred by~a~Negro stnclent Then black students from the U of D and Loras College met in the student union. One said later, "We questioned whether we should leave tfie campus or stay and fight.'We decided to stay and fight." About 40 Negroes, including several women, then went to a dormitory where most Phi Omicron members live. They accused fraternity members of starting the fire in the cultural center. An argument followed. Most fraternity members left, saying they wanted to avoid violence, but nine stayed to fight. Thfr-blacks useth clubs and the fraternity men fought with chairs. Several on both sides were injured. -Three fraternity members required treatment at a hospital, one for a head gash which required several stitches. ~~Tfie~BTacks {hen went fe Aitchison Hall, a women's dormitory, and were confronted by the head residents, Mr. "sM Mrs. Paul Kirkegaard, who were roughed Up. Occupy Building By this time several white students were organizing a counter-attack. The blacks went to Van Vliet Hall, the U of D administrative center, and stayed there until 8:30 a.m. Thursday. Several windows in the hall were broken and one office was broken into and a typewriter stolen. Some furniture was destroyed. Dean Coit said total damage, including the fire, amounted to several hundred dollars. Jo Anne Hall, a black senior from Jackson, Miss., said there has been racial tension on campus most of the year and the cultural center fire was the "trigger" tar Wednesday night's violence'. She blamed the tension on racism and opposition by many white students ,to the founding of the cultural center. Miss Hall said all Jhe black Students are leaving the campus and tha»y laid will not return. - ~ Gary MOtife, *i, • fefiior from Des Moiftei and U of D senior class president, said, "ffre ni|Bt left M wjtlf dls- appointmeiit sad regret. Many^were not able to act like adults last night. They - Reacted eWotiOftally." Dean Coit and several students put much of the blame for the violence on "two or three persons" who are not students. ;', The right Time...

And in the solid quality and dependability you've come to expect from Oldsmobile. In fact, it's this .quality that leads many people to believe 'thgt Olds is priced out of their reach. A mistaken notion that might keep you in an ordinary car, instead of an Olds.;:" The truth of the matter is. that many Olds models are priced right down with.the-low-price e names. . </•• Now that you have the facts, isn't this your year to go Oldsmobile?
