"The attempted takeover of the Old Capitol followed a rally of demonstrators that at times numbered about 1,000. For a time during the-rally students blocked traffic on Clinton Street. Speakers at the rally on the Pentacrest condemned the students for their apathy and demanded that they defy the temporary injunction which forbids such, things as obstructing traffic or damaging property. "Are you going to just drink your wine and smoke your dope and be happy or are you going to do something?" demanded one speaker. "Come on, and follow me," he said. 'Several hundred demonstrators who had been milling about the Pentacrest listening to a rock band, then moved out into Clinton street halting traffic. Identity of the speaker was not immediately known. After some 15 minutes, the same speaker called the crowd SOMETHING'S.

What the drawings say about the future, why the professor prefers to live in Iowa and how he views the role of the artist today are subjects of an Insight report. When masses involved in probability of bloodshed among many whose only role would be that of bystander, there is no choice but to deviate from one principle in favor of the important competing human valuezoi physical safety for the many, of people are physical confrontation, the results are not controllable as has been far too clear to us these "past few days throughout the country."

"university regulations" will be suspended immediately. Boyd said he was exercising -"emergency author- Hy vested-in me" in order to preserve "the physical safety and well-being of'all members of the university community and the protection of university property." Boyd said he was acting "as a result of the recent violencf and threats of violence on -the campus," "This policy will remain in effect until, in my judgment the; present level of tension or the campus has subsided ant there are no further threats o: violence to persons or—property," Boyd said. Earlier in the day, Boyd can-- celed ROTC "Governor's Day"! ceremonies scheduled for Iowa City on Saturday, saying his decision was dictated by "the strong probability of bloodshed." Boyd termed his decision a "surrender of principle in the interest of public safety." Anti-war protesters at the University of Iowa, who have .created two nights of disorders this week, had announced their intention to stage "non-violent disruption" of the ROTC ceremonies. 'Gov. Robert Bay, who was to take part in /the ROTC activity, issOed a statement urging TtoaFtiir cancellation "be the beginning point for a new spirit infowa — a spirit of reason, logic, non-yiolence and renewed concern for the rights of the individual American.", Boyd's decision was made known in a statement released to felt name at Iowa City. Boyd had been in Des Moines earlier to confer with Governor Ray. "Acceding to force is intolerable to me personally," Boyd said in the-statement, "but in this instance, faced with what I am now convinced is 4he strong now in our midst to leave the campus." • Governor Ray, in his statement, said he is "shocked by the tragic events at Kent State University (where four students were killed on Mon- j day by Ohio National Guardsmen), and disheartened by the continuing climate of violent confrontation that has occurred on many of our nation's campuses." He warned tfiat he will "not tolerate the occurrence of violence on or off our campuses, and I will take whatever measures necessary to protect the lives and the property of peaceful, rational and responsible lo- wansL-^be they sincere student demonstrators or other private citizens."

"It requires 99 per cent perspiration and one per cent inspiration. "I think the time has come for us to sweat out the solutions to the problems of our times."

Must Remain Flexible He said the nation's social and political institutions must remain flexible, open and willing to change with the times. He said young people are expressing their concern over national problems by publicly demonstrating because they feel the government is unresponsive to the wishes of the people.
