May Seeking Disciplinary Actions Against Chanting OBU Supporters


Dean May said yesterday that he is filing additional complaints with the Interim Committee on Rights and Responsibilities against students involved in the December 11 demonstrations at University Hall.

May said he is bringing charges against the demonstrators outside of University Hall who attempted to shout him down while he was reading a statement to the black stdents inside. The statement informed the blacks that they had been temporarily suspended.

James Q. Wilson, professor of Government and chairman of the rights committee, said that he expects May will file the complaints today.

In another action involving the rights committee, Alan Gilbert., a teaching fellow in Government, received notice yesterday that he has been separated from the University until January 1, 1972, for his participation in the November 19 SDS sit-in at University Hall.

Gilbert said last night, however, that he had not received notice of his hearing. "They claim that they sent me a copy of the complaint December 10." he said. "But I never received the letter."

Wilson said that the committee has had no communication with Gilbert. He added that all students who have been subject to disciplinary action by the committee have the right to appeal, and Gilbert can request that the committee reconsider his case on the basis that he was unable to attend his hearing.

In response to such requests, the committee may either grant a new hearing, reconsider its decision without a new hearing, or deny the request and reaffirm its original decision.
