After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
The Harvard chapter of Students for a Democratic Society will stage a march through the Yard and a rally at Lowell Lecture Hall today, to demonstrate sympathy for the arrested student demonstrators at the University of California.
The march, which grew out of earlier plans for a rally, will begin at 3:15 p.m. in the triangle of grass between the House area and the LAB. David M. Kotz '65, president of the S.D.S. chapter here, predicted last night that as many as 400 students from Harvard, Tufts, Brandeis, and Simmons will join the demonstrations.
March Down Mill Street
The group will march from the LAB down Mill Street, up Plympton Street to Massachusetts Ave., and through the Yard to Lowell Lecture Hall.
Barney Frank '62, asst. senior tutor of Winthrop House, will address the marchers inside Lowell Lecture Hall. Leonard K. Nash, professor of Chemistry, will chair the meeting, and Dave Van Ronk, the folksinger, will sing.
Meanwhile in Berkeley, President Clark Kerr told a meeting of 13,000 students that the University would drop the charges against four leaders of the Free Speech Movement which triggered renewed demonstrations last week.
Kerr said he would leave the 800 students arrested in last Thursday's sit-in to the courts because civil charges are "far more serious than those made previously by the University." He added that there would be no change in a recent ruling by the California Regents making illegal political activity off campus subject to University discipline.
When Mario Savio, a leader of the F.S.M., tried to speak in answer to Kerr, he was dragged from the podium by University police, amid loud booing from the crowd, Later he told an F.S.M. rally that Kerr's proposals were "totally unacceptable."
