New Category Of Discipline Is Not Likely

But Some on Faculty Want One, Dean Says

By Joel R. Kramer

Some members of the Faculty are suggesting the need for a new category of punishment to be applied to the Paine Hall protestors, Dean Glimp said yesterday. He added, however, that no one has made a specific suggestion to him.
