JOIN OUR CLUB 99 THE BATTALION Tuesday, May 5, 1970 College Station, Texas Page 3 4 Students Die At Kent State KENT, Ohio UP)— Four stu dents in a crowd pelting National Guardsmen with bricks and rocks were shot to death at Kent State University Monday when the troops opened fire during an anti war demonstration. Two of the dead were coeds. Adj. Gen. S. T. Del Corso said troops began firing semiauto matic rifles after a rooftop sniper had shot at them. Four other students were crit ically wounded, and eight other persons, including two guards men, were taken to hospitals. One of the guardsmen was treated for exhaustion and the other for shock. The campus and the town of Kent were sealed off after the shootings, and school officials ordered the faculty, staff and 19,000 students to leave. A spokesman said about 300 foreign students and staff re mained on campus Monday night. Patrols of armed troops and state police roamed the campus and blocked all entrances. Buses took the students to public transportation facilities in nearby Akron and Cleveland. Akron State University stu dents were organizing a rally for downtown Akron Monday night to protest the shooting. Gov. James A. Rhodes called for FBI help in investigating the disorders. In Washington, President Nix on issued this statement: “This should remind us all once again that when dissent turns to violence it invites tragedy. “It is my hope that this tragic and unfortunate incident will strengthen the determination of all the nation’s campuses, admin istrators, faculty and students alike, to stand firmly for the right which exists in this country of peaceful dissent and just as strongly against the resort to violence as a means of expres sion.” The shooting came after a force of 100 guardsmen, their supply of tear gas exhausted, were surrounded by about 400 demonstrators. The troops had followed the demonstrators from a rally on Kent State’s Commons area near the football practice field. Guard spokesmen estimated that 900 to 1,000 persons had been involved in the demonstra tion at the Commons. Gene Williams, 21, a junior and a member of the student news paper staff, said he was seeking refuge in a building when he saw the troops turn “in unison, as if responding to a command,” and fire into the crowd. Bullets recocheted off the walls beside us and student fell to the ground to avoid them,” Williams Bulletin Board TONIGHT Campus Committee of Concern will meet at 7:30 p.m. in the UCCF Center at Northgate.

A bullet had gone into her neck and lodged there.” He said he saw another youth shot in the chest. “I saw no snipers nor did I hear any shots until the line of troops turned in unison and opened fire,” Williams said. Del Corso, the adjutant general, said guardsmen were forced to open fire. “A lot of people felt their lives were in danger,” said Brig. Gen. Robert Canterbury, who was on the scene, “which in fact was the case and the military man always has the option to fire if he feels his life is in danger.” “He has the right to protect himself.” Del Corso said tear gas was used several times in attempts to disperse the crowd. “The guard expended its entire supply of tear gas and when it did, the mob started to move for ward to encircle the guardsmen,” Del Corso said. “At the same time, a sniper opened fire against the guardsmen from a nearby rooftop. All guardsmen were hit by rocks and bricks. “Guardsmen facing almost cer tain injury and death were forced to open fire on the attackers. University President Robert I. White asked all students, faculty and staff members to go home “as quickly as possible.” Twelve persons, including two guardsmen ,were hospitalized in Ravenna and Akron. One guards man was described as suffering from shock. Hospital officials identified three of the dead as William Schneider, Jeffrey Miller, Allison Krause. The fourth person was an unidentified girl. Miller, 20, was from Plainyiew, N. Y., and the Krause girl, 19, from Pittsburgh, Pa. “I don’t know where the first shot was from,” said Gen. Canter bury. He said he was with guards men but heard no order to fire. “They started pelting every one with bullets,” said Mary Hagan, a student who witnessed the shooting. She said some stu dents fell and others remained standing. They shouted that the shots were blanks, she said. Miss Hagan said she heard one guardsman issue a cease-fire order which halted the firing.

During my tour of duty in the military, servicemen were blessed with two | pay raises, each about a year apart. Both times within about a month or two of the pay raises there was a notable hike in rent and commissary food prices. Recently veterans were given a welcomed boost in their Veter ans Educational Assistance. But now we are faced with the very unwelcomed sounds of “needed raise in college tuition”. But this not only affects veterans but anyone struggling financially to keep up with college costs. There are probably many “needs” in the Texas college sys tems that require more funds, but as I look around at some of the inappropriate spending at some colleges I wonder. I may be whistling in the wind. But I appeal to anyone : with my views on this issue to - join with me in asking for stu dent strength to try and quell this new grasp at our pocket- books. Perhaps even our student sen ate can voice our appeal. R. M.
