Police beat back demonstrators at MIT tJnited Press International CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — About 200 riot-equipped pd- lice, swinging night 'sticks and a few toting high- powered rifles, waded into 300 retreating antiwar demonstrators yesterday after breaking up their picket line at a Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) war- related research laboratory. At least 10 persons including two newsmen were hurt. Three or four persons were arrested. The helmeted police, wear- ing no identification, dispersed the pickets without incident from an MIT instrumentation laboratory building less than tw& blocks from the campus. But on a side street about 50 yards from the lab, police in close formation broke ranks and moved into the cursing and taunting demonstrators. Although warned by a captain that "no man strikes out with a club unless he is assaulted," a small number of policemen in the front tine responded to taunts and obscen- J. Edgar Hoover Hoover hits curbing of police WASHINGTON (AP)-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover told the graduating class of the 84th FBI National Academy yesterday that police authority is more limited now than at any time in history. "To counter this situation," Hoover said, "law enforcement must arm itself with a different kind of power — the power which stems from knowledge." Hoover told the 100 law enforcement officers "none know better than you" that police do not have "an excess of power." "](Vhile you constantly face perilous conditions," he said, "never has your authority been so curtailed and your options to act so limited as they are at present." Deputy Atty. Gen. Richard G. Kleindrenst presented the certificates to the graduating class, which included representatives of all 50 states, the Philippines, the Canal Zone, Australia, Canada, Thailand, the Hong Kong police force, the District of Columbia police department, the White House police, the U.S. park police and the Army, Air Force and Marine Corps. Hoover noted that the class marked the first time in the academy's 35-year history that each state sent a representative to the academy. Newsom J. Gibson Jr., chief of the Arcata, Calif., police department, was awarded the J. Edgar Hoover Medal for excellence in the study of law enforcement, Pickets at university stopped by court order SOMERVILLE, Mass. (AP.) Tufts University obtained a court order yesterday to halt black student picketing at a campus construction site. The temporary injunction barring the students from trespassing was issued in Middlesex Superior Court. About 100 members of the university Afro-American society occupied the site for six hours yesterday to dramatize their demands for more minority group workers on a dormitory project. "We had accomplished one of our purposes, which was to shut construction down," a spokesman said after the students left. A group of 30 students and faculty members, all white, marched to the campus home of the university's president, Burton C. Hallowell. They asked that the injunction not be issued but the university already had obtained the order. They also asked that construction workers be paid for the day and that the Volpe Construction Co. which is erecting the building, hire more minority group employ- es. A Volpe spokesman said the firm would pay the construction workers for the day. ilies with attacks on the protesters. After the foray, an unidentified police captain lectured an unidentified policeman. "If you ever do that again, you're off," he yelled as the phalanx reformed. Before police arrived, two persons tried to cross the picket lines and enter the lab. One person made it into the lab but the other was repulsed. Scuffles occurred both times and blows were exchanged. The protesters, organized by the November Action Coalition (NAC), an umbrella group of militant youths, picketed the laboratory in an effort to force MIT to cease work on guidance systems for the Multiple Independently targeted Re-entry Vehicle (MIRV) and Poseidon missile. The strike by police came only two days after a court judge, at the request of MIT, issued a temporary restraining order forbidding the coalition group from occupying MIT buildings and facilities. MIT said it did not summon police. A Cambridge police official said, "We made the decision (to move in) because the situation warranted." The ranks of Cambridge police were swelled with police from other greater Boston communities who wore identification. A third-year medical student from Tufts University, acting as a medic for the protesters, said he had sent two girls to city hospitals with head wounds. A wire service reporter and Boston Globe reporter Parker Donham were hit repeatedly by policemen after they had been forced into a corner of a loading ramp. Police yelled, "Get the hell out of here! Get going," while the beating took place. Both reporters wore blue "Press" armbands. Asked why the 200-man dispersing force wore neither badges nor nameplates, a captain, who would not identify himself, said, "See my badge ... see me at the station." He said the badges were on the men's raincoats, which they did not wear. MAIL Phoenix, Winrs., Nov. #, 1969 E The Arizona Republic A-5 (N MEMORIAL DWIGHT D.
