Business School Defends Itself

By Samuel Z. Goldhaber

Reacting to rumors, the Business School called in extra squads of University police yesterday afternoon, including plainclothesmen, to guard against possible disruption and occupation by dissatisfied student strikers after the stadium rally.

Except for one guarded entrance at each building, all doors to Baker Library, the computer center, and Morgan Hall, the Business school's equivalent to University Hall, were sealed off.

The school's secretaries were sent home early in the afternoon and the first year class afternoon sessions were cancelled. Many second-year professors cancelled their classes both as a precaution and permit students to attend the stadium rally.

A loudspeaker system was set up opposite Baker Library. Student Association Executive Board members were posted on the campus to convince the disrupting the |Business School campus would not be as worthwhile adjust talking over the issues.

John A. Seiler, assistance dean for the MBA program, said last night that this precautionary policy was decided upon at an 8 a.m. meeting with some students, faculty, administrations, and George P. Baker '25, dean of the Business school.

"It seemed wise to minimize contact" between those who attended the stadium" rally and the Business school students, Seiler added. He explained that statement of a Divinity school student suggesting that the Business school be "confronted" with its lack of support for the popular student position was especially alarming to Business school administrators.

Baker's memorandum to the school stated that "in order to avoid traffic problems later in the afternoon, the Administrative Offices of the school will close at 2:30 p.m."
