No Decision Philip Hubbard, U. of I. vice- provost, said no decision has been made yet by university officials regarding possible disciplinary action against students arrested Friday morning. H u b'b a r d said mass dismissals under emergency action by the university president have been ruled out for Friday's arrrests. . "That's not to say this won't be used if something further should happen," Hubbard said. "The emergency dismissal is designed to be used on the spot. It is not to be used retroactively unless the president believes a certain person to be a real threat to the community," Hubbard.'added. Hubbard said that university president Willard Boyd didn't invoke the emergency suspension Friday morning because he thought that clearing Old Capitol of demonstrators was sufficient action to protect university property. Hubbard also said that the administration does not know how many non-students or students from other colleges may be involved in demonstrations here. Reports of Outsiders "We get persistent reports that a lot of out of town people are on the campus," Hubbard said. "We can't verify these reports and don't necessarily believe them. We can't tell students from other colleges from our own — we have 20,000 — and we don't necessarily believe these reports, but if there are large numbers of out of town people, we're asking them to leave." Twenty-seven'out of the 229 arrested Friday were not listed as students in university records.

A handful of protesters managed to push into Old Capitol and caused about $900 damage, including punching a hole in a portrait of Oliver M. Spenqer, one-time president of the university. Courthouse Crowded Courtrooms in the Civic Center and the Johnson County Courthouse Friday were packed as attendants processed the dis- .orderly conduct charges against the 229. Volunteers roamed the campus Friday raising money against each defendant by Police Judge Marion Neely. City and county jails, along with city and county garages. were packed overnight those arrested. Debate ranged throughout the community Friday as to whether the arrests were justified. President Boyd denied re- ports-thatJie had tried to persuade police to- drop charges against those, arrested. The arrests came after Boyd: had sent word from Des Moines to have the Pentacrest cleared. Most of the 1,000 demonstrators already had left before, the 2 a.m. arrests started. » "When members of the University community act -in ~such a way as to require the calling of outside help to preserve order, they take control of the university away from that community and put it in the hands of the civil authorities," Boyd said Friday. Cites "Minority" He said that "a minority on campus have forced this situation on us." Boyd added he had urged. Judge Neely to "make a distinction between those who protested in a nonviolent way and those who protested violently." Many of those arrested were among some 1,000 who gathered at the Pentacrest again Friday afternoon to continue the series of rallies against the Indo-Chinese war and to ..demand., that the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) be banned from campus. Student leaders and. Iowa City businessmen met Friday in an effort to bridge some of the obvious gulfs between the thinking of the "establishment" and student'activ- ists. Many businessmen are visibly angered by the demonstrations which have brought damage to a number of businesses. The early morning arrests came, after a night in which many speakers urged students to ".test" an injunction issued Wednesday by District Judge Robert Osmundson. . The injunction forbids such things as blocking streets or buildings or doing property damage. Demonstrators briefly blocked Clinton Street Thursday night. A small group then occupied Jessup Hall which houses many administrative offices. Three Released On City Manager Frank Smiley's orders, three protesters seized in the brief foray into Old Capitol were released. Smiley said Friday, he thought "we had things pretty much under control" before the orders came from Boyd to clear the Pentacrest. University provost Ray Heffner and Highway Patro} Capt. Lyle H. Dickinsorf told the demonstrators of Bfiyd's order. - -—They were given 10 minutes to leave. Some 100 officers from Iowa. City Police Department, the Iowa Highway Patrol and the Johnson County sheriff's office began making arrests a half hour later. Among those arrested were Dr. George Forell, director of the-school of religion;, the Rev. Roy Wingate, pastor of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church; and the Rev. Ronald Osborne. Episcopal student chaplain. Before the 5 p.m. march on the Civic Center Friday, speak- j ers on the Pentacrest urged that! resistance to the war and ROTC; continue. Here and there cries j for violence and burning were! heard from the crowd But. the most applause came for those who called for nonviolent protest. Mrs. Virginia Jacobs of Iowa City, who said she was a University of Iowa graduate, told a crowd of 1,000 in mid-afternoon that she supported their views but urged that they act in a mature way. "If you are not mature in Iowa City you are likely "to be mature in Vietnam; and ver,y dead," she said. "Before you break windows remember you aren't involved in a little panty raid. You must earn respect the and that, doesn't come in destruetion-t)f-property; J '^— An unidentified woman speaker said, "We're not going to destroy this campus. We just want to take a stand. We want a voice on Vietnam, Cambodia and ROTC. We just want to be heard. Why won't anyone listen to us?"

W. Maucker, president of the University of Northern night. Some 50 students slept in war, ins on the Indochina Cent, Ohio, shootings and ROTC. Typewriters were made available for persons wishing to write letters to,their U.S. senators.

The Drake choir will sing at 4 p.m. Sunday at the University Christian Church, 1639 University Avenue, in memorial to, the four students slain Monday by national guardsmen at Kent State University. Dr. Hoke Smith, assistant to .he president, said there have ieen no incidents during the demonstrations. He said campus security guards had been ordered to keep a sharp watch on the ROTC building on the campus. Broadcasters Honor Town FORT DODGE, IA. (AP) Dean George Town of the Iowa State University College of Engineering was presented the [owa Broadcasters Association It' also was announced that students involved in disruptions of last month's attempted hearing on the sit-in cases will not be subjected to hearings before the university's discipline com mittee. , On Probation Instead, all the students involved in the two incidents will be placed on "conduct proba tion," said Dr. Maucker, The action, in effect,- is a warning that any further .''serious infractions" of university regulations will^be' referred to the school's disciplinary committee. The probation is effective until June 1,' 1971. ' Dr. Maucker said the university's student .personnel deans, Or, Edward , Voldseth.. and Mavis Holmes, had withdrawn their recommendations for disciplinary hearings for the students and advised that they be placed on probation instead. Dr. Maucker concurred'and said, "I think,.our failure to communicate sufficiently was partially responsible for the student sit-in, and the penalties initially suggested by the deans in the-excitement of those first two weeks were too severe," The demonstrations' that occurred during- the .hearing at the UNI administration building on Apr. 20-21 were in protest against exclusion of the public from the sessions. A total of '28 persons — 26 of them UNI students — were sentenced to seven-day jail terms for violating aji injunction banning disruptions of the hearing. The sit-in at Dr. Maucker's home on Mar. 16-17 occurred when members of the UNI Afro-American Society sought his written commitment that another house on the campus could be' used as a cultural center for minorities.

Protesters who had threat- sned to close down the draft Doard — if necessary by sitting in and being arrested as they did Thursday — didr/t have to do it. The office didn't open because it still reeled of tear gas used to clear out Thursday's demonstrators. A handful of protesters lay on the lawn outside the draft office anyway, and demonstrators wearing black armbands with "KENT" chalked on them mingled with visitors at Veishea, ISU's annual spring open house. More than 1,300 high school students came to the campus for Career Day — a look at the university for prospective students. "That's a very good crowd, just what we expected," said Sue Molton, a senior from Algona and co-chairman of Veishea. She said, however, that the Dike High School band had pulled out of today's Veishea ' parade and two other schools were considering not coming. Veishea organizers are expecting a large crowd and "no trouble at all" for the parade she said. Anti-war protesters are expected to join a "March of Concern" that concludes, the parade and leads to a rally on Central Campus at noon today. Absent from the Veishea • scene, was the display of military weapons and equipment usually set up outside the ISU Armory by the Reserve Officers Training Corps cadets. Military open houses, were held inside the armory, however, and Col. Robert Barnett, Army ROTC- commanderr-said-there— were no incidents from protesters who had focused on ROTC earlier in the week. Ames police reportect arresting "a couple of drunks," but said,\ there were 'no new incidents with the'protesters. Officers stood'guard at the draft board,.early Friday morning, but the threatened demonstration never materialized. An ISU coed, Sally Marie Bennett, 19, of Turin, who had been jailed Thursday for contempt of court after allegedly shouting an obscenity at Ames Municipal Judge John L. McKinney was released from custody. McKinney ordered her to appear at a hearing next Wednesday to "show cause" why she should not be jailed on the charge. Plan Community Relations Group .
